Hi! This is my talk page and archive. I am mostly editing Bulgarian Wikipedia with adding few things here like adjusting bg interwikis, some sources and links, and sometimes I edit templates or add information to articles. You can start a new thread with clicking here.

Visual Editor[edit]

Hey Aleksd

I'm sending you this because you've made quite a few edits to the template namespace in the past couple of months. If I've got this wrong, or if I haven't but you're not interested in my request, don't worry; this is the only notice I'm sending out on the subject :).

So, as you know (or should know - we sent out a centralnotice and several watchlist notices) we're planning to deploy the VisualEditor on Monday, 1 July, as the default editor. For those of us who prefer markup editing, fear not; we'll still be able to use the markup editor, which isn't going anywhere.

What's important here, though, is that the VisualEditor features an interactive template inspector; you click an icon on a template and it shows you the parameters, the contents of those fields, and human-readable parameter names, along with descriptions of what each parameter does. Personally, I find this pretty awesome, and from Monday it's going to be heavily used, since, as said, the VisualEditor will become the default.

The thing that generates the human-readable names and descriptions is a small JSON data structure, loaded through an extension called TemplateData. I'm reaching out to you in the hopes that you'd be willing and able to put some time into adding TemplateData to high-profile templates. It's pretty easy to understand (heck, if I can write it, anyone can) and you can find a guide here, along with a list of prominent templates, although I suspect we can all hazard a guess as to high-profile templates that would benefit from this. Hopefully you're willing to give it a try; the more TemplateData sections get added, the better the interface can be. If you run into any problems, drop a note on the Feedback page.

Hannes Swoboda[edit]

I don't follow Bulgarian politics and I don't really understand everything in your recent additions to the article, but can you, as a first step, reduce it to what is related to Hannes Swoboda? Either to him personally or his political functions in the EU.

Swoboda supported Stanishev in what? If he took a public stance in Bulgarian matters, stating that fact, whom against whom, their political function and a sentence to briefly explain the issue should be enough. Gerald Jarosch (talk) 23:53, 29 June 2013 (UTC)

I'd like to ask you again for clarification. For now I don't see much that is relevant enough to stay in the article. Swoboda supported Stanishev in his bid for president of the PES, but I don't find anything that says he ever did not, that he had to change his opinion before.
Siderov ... that part is too vague, so Swoboda generally spoke against radical, anti-democratic right wing elements, Siderov, Berlusconi, Urban, ... in European politics. I don't know what of that is important enough in an article about Hannes Swoboda, but it should not turn into a biography of Siderov.
Another problem I'm facing is that I don't speak Bulgarian and auto-translated versions of the references are pretty much incomprehensible. Gerald Jarosch (talk) 02:31, 3 July 2013 (UTC)
Ok, here is my thought with a few words: every politician has a renome, at the time of the annual conference of PES in Sofia, Bulgarian people were and still are questioning Stanishev's abilities as a political leader because of his verbal insisting for the appointment of Delian Peevski and the support by Siderov in multiple ways for the government with Stanishev's puppet Oresharski as a prime minister. --Aleksd (talk) 05:27, 8 July 2013 (UTC)
Ok, but this doesn't really have anything to do with Swoboda, does it? Gerald Jarosch (talk) 23:42, 11 July 2013 (UTC)

Bulgarian help needed[edit]

Hello Aleksd, I'm contacting you because we need some Bulgarian translators to help with the deployment of the new VisualEditor on bg.wikipedia. There are help pages, user guides, and description pages that need translating, as well as the interface itself. The translating work is going on over on MediaWiki: Translation Central. I also need help with a personal message for the Bulgarian Wikipedians. If you are able to help in any way, either reply here, or head over to TranslationCentral. Thanks for your time, PEarley (WMF) (talk) 20:28, 21 July 2013 (UTC)

To be honest, I don't like the visual editor, it makes things overcomplicated instead of easier as it should. But there could be new users who might like it, still I don't feel like working on it since it is not exactly my type of gadget. But there is one thing I am glad, it somehow disappeared from my English wiki, I really hope the visualeditor to be pushed only on new users and not everyone. --Aleksd (talk) 09:26, 23 July 2013 (UTC)
Understandable. Thanks for your reply. PEarley (WMF) (talk) 15:21, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

Уточнение[edit]

Аз съм българин и нямам руски произход (никът ми в Уикипедия бе произволно избран). Не съм влизал в руската Уикипедия, а и не разполагам с нужните познания, за да правя промени в статията за протестите в Украйна. Не смятам, че съм пристрастен (винаги посочвам източниците си като редактирам/добавям материали и се старая да се позовавам на медии, които са що годе неутрални). По принцип не би трябвало да е проблем ако англичани допринасят към статии за България или руснаци участват при доизпипването на статии в българската Уикипедия (стига информацията да не е погрешна или изреченията да са неуместно формулирани). Oleg Morgan (talk) 11:33, 20 Dеcember 2013 (UTC)

По принцип лъжите ти и обясненията не ме интересуват, платена писарушко. --Aleksd (talk) 09:56, 20 December 2013 (UTC)

Кое точно от написаното в статията е лъжа (всичко може да бъде проверено съвсем лесно)? Източниците, които цитирам са mediapool.bg, blitz.bg и т.н., които определено не са медии с лява ориентация. Не съм платен (и за да бъде доказано едно такова твърдение трябват сериозни доказателства), а целта ми е да предоставя допълнителна информация във връзка с България. Както и да е - въпросната статия ще бъде прегледана от админите и останалите редактори ще подкрепят истинността на думите ми. Oleg Morgan (talk) 20:42, 20 December 2013 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 79.100.27.226 (talk)

Nonsense. --Aleksd (talk) 07:06, 17 January 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for February 25[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Scales of Justice (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Nadezhda Neynsky[edit]

This article was in terrible shape and was not really an article. Even after a major attempt at fixing the flow of the article, I find myself unable to find sources for its content. Can you please help me fix this article so that it does not have to be nominated for deletion?

Thank you for your cooperation. -- Kndimov (talk) 16:07, 14 March 2014 (UTC)

Script and alphabet[edit]

In linguistics, "script" means a writing system of any kind, it doesn't have anything to do with programming. It's a broader term than "alphabet" because the latter specifically refers to one kind of script: one that has separate characters for consonants and vowels. This distinguishes it from an abjad (only consonants), abugida (consonants with an inherent vowel + vowel modifiers), syllabary (consonant with vowel combined) and logographic script (encoding meaning directly). In some of the changes you made to Cyrillic alphabets, the change to "alphabet" was not correct as not all the scripts it refers to are in fact alphabets. CodeCat (talk) 12:05, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

Nonsense. It was always Cyrillic alphabet. Script is a writing system of nonexisting kind in human language linguistics. --Aleksd (talk) 12:08, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
We are proud of our Cyrillic alphabet, not of our script!? Do you see how ridiculous it sounds. --Aleksd (talk) 12:11, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
As I said, "script" means writing system in linguistics. Just google for "Cyrillic script" (with quotes) and you find plenty of sites other than Wikipedia that use the term in that way. CodeCat (talk) 13:40, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
I don't need to Google, as obviously I am Bulgarian and I know that the alphabet I use is called an ALPHABET both in everyday use and in academic use. Sofia University is too close to where I am to "Google" that it is called Cyrillic alphabet. I don't need to discuss such simple matter because if we stumble here I don't see how are we going to reach any progress at all as human race. This typical petty thinking devaluates what is important in our society and makes ground for the wrong ideas, I am very much against it. --Aleksd (talk) 13:51, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
Let me give an example, we keep the article "woman" even though some people may use 'skirt' with the same meaning. --Aleksd (talk) 13:57, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
Oh, you are socialist? Say no more. I suppose it hurts the Russians that we created the alphabet they write at, gave them literature, culture and even Religion that they abuse harshly and make us be regretful that we gave them all these attributes of the civilised nations while they are not civilised and respect not our God, such a great shame for them. We have a very different rhetoric about them outside Wikipedia that I shan't use here. --Aleksd (talk) 14:04, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
Well, it doesn't seem that you can be reasoned with. In any case, both of your changes have been reverted by other editors, for exactly the reason I stated. CodeCat (talk) 19:16, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

Foreign policy of Margaret Thatcher[edit]

Hi and thanks for your work on this. I would encourage you to work on this in your user space before putting it in mainspace. The article as it stood was so poor and short that it was not worth linking to or keeping. I have redirected it and removed the link from the main article meantime. --John (talk) 20:02, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

Page move[edit]

I think the word "intervention" was used as Russia does not acknowledge having any forces inside Ukraine(despite evidence to the contrary); "military invasion" suggests an official operation. As someone who has posted there I can say that the title has been somewhat controversial(some not even wanting to use "intervention") so you may want to discuss your move on the talk page(someone likely will anyway). Just FYI. 331dot (talk) 10:12, 6 September 2014 (UTC)
