Images of Romanian towns' coats of arms[edit]

Please be aware that unless you're able to demonstrate that the images you uploaded are public domain or their creator licenses them for use here, they will be deleted. Since we need those coats of arms, please proceed accordingly. Best of luck and Bine ai venit, romane ;), Dunemaire 16:54, 29 December 2005 (UTC)

The copyrights of Coat of arms are usually not enforceable under American law, so it's ok to upload them. However, Andrei, it would be better to tag them as {{coatofarms}}. (BTW, Welcome to Wikipedia!)bogdan 17:41, 29 December 2005 (UTC)
I see you started to replace the copyright tags with those recommended by Bogdan - Good job. For the record, where did you find them on the web? Dunemaire 18:54, 29 December 2005 (UTC)
They're in my collection. Some of them I found on the ICI website (www.ici.ro, more precisely [1]). Others, I got them from [2] (but just a few and not very accurate - he has them scanned from Maria Dogaru's Heraldica Romaniei). Some I have from [3] (but again, very few are usable due to inaccuracy). Others I took them from the mayor's office website from each city and then edited them so they are a little clearer. Some I don't even remember where I found them. I have some more, but since I changed the template for the Romanian towns, the top priority was adding the ones for the towns whose pages are using that template, so it doesn't look ugly. In the next few weeks I will try and cleanup my work and add some more contributions. Andrei Stroe 19:10, 29 December 2005 (UTC)
As far as I recall, coats of arm are not copyrighted in Romania, hence they can't be anywhere else. Most of them wree creating in the Commnist years and they were in the public domain (it was Communism, right?), and the older ones are out of any jurisdiction by now. You did a great job.--Luci_Sandor (talkcontribsFlag of Europe.svg Flag of New Jersey.svg 19:32, 29 December 2005 (UTC)
Wouldn't it be nice to have a copyright tag that says this?(the "communist years creation = public domain") It would save a lot of trouble. Dunemaire 20:45, 29 December 2005 (UTC)

Template Romanian Coat of Arms[edit]

Salut Andrei,

I've looked around and seen that according tot the Romanian law, the coat of arms of public authorities cannot be copyrighted. Acordingly, We've created a copyright template which says that, and I would like to ask you to use it for the CoA you've uploaded. It is this one Template:PD-RomaniaGov and there is a link tot the law which says that. Good Luck. Mihai -talk 13:15, 10 March 2006 (UTC)

Excellent, I've just seen that.Andrei Stroe 13:18, 10 March 2006 (UTC)

Speedy deletion[edit]

I noticed that you tagged the page Image:Coa slatina ro.gif for speedy deletion with the reason "Better version available on commons: Image:Coa_Slatina_RO.gif". However, "Better version available on commons: Image:Coa_Slatina_RO.gif" is not currently one of our criteria for speedy deletion, so I have removed the speedy deletion tag. You can use WP:IFD if you still want the article to be deleted. Thanks! Stifle 23:59, 3 April 2006 (UTC)

Kindly approve the deletion of your entry for Slanic's official website[edit]

Andrei, I hope you will approve of my deleting that entry of yours.

As much as I would like the town to have an official website, I am afraid www.slanic.ro is not that. It seems to me that it's only an interface to sell as many admissions to the Lake (Baia Baciului) by the local concession company as possible (also, the suggested contact is by cell phone, no name nor address is given, etc).

I acknowledge that there is plenty of interesting information on that website, but still not enough (or at least not structured in the proper way) to justify it qualifying for the 'official' title.

I am sure that this situation will improve soon, thanks to the increasingly generous public contribution, at least in the wiki domain.

Thank you much, and best of luck. Ilav. Ilavuscaen 16:31, 11 April 2006 (UTC)

Bună Andrei. Frumoasă poza cu răul Buzău. Aceeaşi poză apare acum şi pe ro.wp. O buzoiancă -Laurapr 08:53, 22 May 2006 (UTC)


Buna,

A inceput un vot pentru stergerea "Wikipediei Moldovenesti", o creatie a unui Evreu-American, cu origini suspecte in Basarabia si care nu vorbeste limba wikipediei la care pretinde a fi sysop. Il cheama Node ue si pentru a crea impresia ca lumea doreste aceasta wikipedie, a apelat la toti utilizatorii rusi care au venit sa voteze de partea lui desi nu cunosc bine subiectul si li s-a spus ca voteaza pentru supravietuirea alfabetului chirilic. Asa a ajuns ca votul sa fie 31 pentru stergerea Mo wiki, si 42 impotriva stergerii - deci in alte cuvinte pentru pastrarea wikipediei in limba "moldoveneasca". Vino si voteaza aici[4] , ca sa sergem acesta creatura cu miros bolshevic, care insulta toti romanii de pe ambele maluri ale Prutului. Node ue le-a spus rusilor sa traduca mesajul lui in limba rusa si sa-l transmita mai departe. Trimite si tu mesajul acesta la toti utilizatorii romani-unionisti sau romani-moldoveni unionisti pe care-i cunosti pe en.wiki sau ro.wiki. Dapiks 23:33, 23 June 2006 (UTC)

Stuff[edit]

Hi, Andrei. I'm not sure if you have seen my comment here, so I'm posting it on this page as well. Thank you. Dahn 13:15, 2 August 2007 (UTC)

Hi again. I see your point, and your project is laudable. However, this is one of the things I was going to look into next. This raises two issues: one is that we may both be working on it at the same time, which means that it may not be possible to use your version as a template for expansion (or, if so, only partially); also, I am working towards citing each statement made in the final article, and maybe restructuring it altogether based on what sources say (which, in turn, means that, in their final versions, the texts may only coincide very little). See his son for a comparison. I certainly don't want to to seem like I'm patronizing or discouraging you: if you still want to work on the translation, I can only commend your input. The only thing is this unexpected coincidence. If you should want instead to contribute to the other project, in any way you should consider necessary, and whenever you have the time or the interest, I would be delighted. So, it's entirely your decision. Cheers, Dahn 10:46, 3 August 2007 (UTC)

Great! Glad to have you on board. I'll pile up my sources and either sandbox it on one of my pages or, if you allow me to, use your sandbox. What I have done in another such project is to use the {{inuse}} template as a means to avoid edit conflicts, and that way we can all edit in turns. I have some major edits in mind, since I gathered a lot of sources over the last weeks, but I'll try not to hog it. I'll start something at the vary latest on Monday, and I'm looking forward to any contributions, comments, or questions. Dahn 20:00, 3 August 2007 (UTC)

Hi again, and sorry for the delays (connection problems account for most of them). I've sandboxed it here, and am looking forward to any form of feedback. Regards, and keep up the good work. Dahn 19:40, 9 August 2007 (UTC)

Hi. I noticed you edited in the article - where Bonaparte has copypasted my sandbox in what was a first move to delete it (yes, he must be a moron). In any case: I encourage you to edit the actual sandbox, if you should feel like it, so we get all of this in one place before we move it back there. Dahn 12:03, 15 August 2007 (UTC)

Hi again. I did some redlink filling for a related article. It seems to have much to do with Buzău, so it may interest you, and you could perhaps use it/link to it in other articles. And, btw, I'm just discovering the photos you took of the city, and, judging by them, it is a very nice town. Having never visited it, I had this prejudice about it being all concrete and factories. I owe it an apology. Dahn 23:29, 18 August 2007 (UTC)

This you might find intriguing[edit]

Hello again, Andrei. I was adding some info to Islam in Romania, and I bumped into something you might find interesting. In the "History" part, under "Early presence", in the fragment about the supposed tomb of Sarı Saltuk. I don't of course expect that tidbit to be anything other than pure legend, and neither does the source, which only lists these alternatives as proofs of a very bizarre tradition. But the very legend may be worthy of a mention somewhere in the respective article. Cheers, Dahn (talk) 23:52, 28 February 2008 (UTC)

Miluani[edit]

Hello. Regarding the move request and creation of a new category, I find those both unnecessary, and here is why. Some sort of a consensus has developed over time that on en.wiki, we don't do articles on Romanian villages, just communes; villages are sections in the article on their commune (see e.g. Brăduţ). If that's OK with you, shall we close the requested move, redirect to Hida, and create a new section there for Miluani? - Biruitorul Talk 15:24, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

OK, done. - Biruitorul Talk 16:57, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

In your simplified map of languages there are some errors. I am aware that some other people have left comments of various omissions such as Breton and Sicilian. for me I will let you read those requests yourself, please could you extend the Scottish Gaelic into the top section of Scotland too, from the indent (loch ness, inverness) also the language that is traditionally spoken in the rest of Scotland is Scots, and so from the border with England please could you replace the current English to Scots. In terms of international commerce, Scottish people do speak English, but it is heavily influenced with Scots, and the official languages are therefore Scottish English, Scots and Gaelic.

Sure thing[edit]

No problem at all, Andrei! Let me begin by clarifying my exact attitude toward rowiki: I don't hate the project, I most of all dislike that it is an uphill struggle to get and maintain quality over there, this despite the commendable efforts from you and several others. Other than that, yes, I do prefer to edit here, but have nothing against cooperating - in fact, when I saw this exact translation problem you mention surfacing in other articles which "traced back to me" - that is, articles I contributed here that were translated over there -, I offered to give editors a hand in retrieving the original quotes, only to find that there was absolutely no answer to my offer (which is a shame, because I don't always have access to the same sources). I fell short of editing them in myself because it would have meant editing the same thing twice and then keeping eye on those versions on two projects. That I cannot really do, so in fact I counted on others to be interested.

All of the above means to say, in short, that I'm glad to give you a hand on this, and much flattered that you chose that as your starting point.

The easiest way for me to do this would be to render the relevant part of the quotes in the original Romanian here, for you to use and reuse as you see fit. (I don't use and actually dislike installing the Romanian keypad, so it would actually be easier for me to just render the sections with no diacritics here, and hoping that you won't mind copyediting them in during the process.)

Using this version, direct quotes in order, starting with note 10 and hoping I got it right; adapted to â spelling (implicit), where applicable, and rendered with the exact grammar found in the text (meaning that you may have to adapt the phrase which introduces them here and there); I used what they call "logical quotation", so where the punctuation mark itself is not within the quotes, it's because I only rendered a part of the phrase in its exact succession, but not entirely:

  • "caracter de confesiune ori de jurnal" (note how I tweaked it in the phrase, the English needs no "de" etc. - I'm therefore rendering the whole sentence here, use as you see fit)
  • "copilaria copilului universal"
  • "Intamplarile sunt adevarate, dar tipice, fara adancime."
  • "Personajul basmelor, al nuvelelor, al anecdotelor [here I would add "lui Creanga", but it may be superfluous with the more implicit Romanian grammar] se povesteste pe el insusi in Amintiri din copilarie, opera atat de putin populara in intentia ei."
  • "Ideea de a se povesti pe sine insusi, de a prezenta etapele unei formatii, inceata insumare a impresiilor vietii, apoi sentimentul timpului, al scurgerii lui ireversibile, al regretului pentru tot ce s-a pierdut in consumarea lui, al farmecului retrait in amintire sunt tot atatea ganduri, afecte si atitudini proprii omului modern de cultura. Nici un model popular nu i-a putut pluti inainte lui Creanga, scriindu-si Amintirile, dar, desigur, nici prototipurile culte ale genului, primele autobiografii si memorii ale Renasterii".
  • "Aci [sic], ca si in povestile si povestirile sale, Creanga executa trecerea de la nivelul popular al literaturii la nivelul ei cult pe o cale pur spontana prin dezvoltarea organica a unei inzestrari exercitate in intregul trecut al unei vechi culturi rurale, ajunsa acum sa se depaseasca pe sine."
  • "stabil", "senin", "solar" (actually "solarul", as in "solarul protagonist", but I guess it's safe to drop the article), "nici nu exista decat in descoperirea acestui concret mirific, traditional, riguros".
  • from note 17: "perfect", "situarea temporala si spatiala", "dar si toate detaliile unei lumi ingenue si pline de neastampar".
  • from note 21: "chiar daca socotim ca adultul infrumuseteaza, transfigureaza, 'imbogateste' amintirile din copilarie, cum sa nu recunoastem, la Creanga, sinceritatea in induiosatoarea evocare a satului copilariei sale?" (quote marks within quotes - I went "English" here, but I think the Romanian rule would favor guillemets; just as long as you don't assume the apostrophes themselves were in the Djuvara text)
  • "Si daca ne gandim la satele de bordeie din lunca Dunarii, aici ne aflam in alta tara."
  • from note 27: "Amintirile lui Creanga de la scoala de catiheti ar descuraja orice candidat."
  • "pastisa dizgratioasa"
  • "de prisos", "dramatic"

Hope I didn't miss any, and many, many thanks for doing this. If you have any questions or comments, don't hesitate to post them on my talk page. And please be my critic if it should prove neccessary - yours is a judgment I fully trust. Dahn (talk) 11:44, 15 December 2009 (UTC)

  • Incidentally, glancing over the ro version: the template for the wikisource thing doesn't work (a script error?) and I want to suggest either removing the bare url from the other refs or unlinking the titles - both side by side just looks weird to me, and I don't really see what they add. Unless this is a larger format convention used by rowiki, in which case just ignore me. Dahn (talk) 11:53, 15 December 2009 (UTC)
  • One more note: "academic" does not translate as "academician(a)", but more as "universitar(a)". But you could go with "specialist(a)" or similar. I only use the English term for variation, because, since ideally we should identify what every author has for a specialty (or professional bias), three quarters of the people whom one cites in such articles would be "literary critic" or "literary historian". You are of course free to use whatever you like, it's just that I don't think the person in question really is an "academician" by the tight Romanian standards. Dahn (talk) 12:07, 15 December 2009 (UTC)

Thanks are really due to you (not least of all for putting up with my quirks). Indeed, Constantinescu is my translation from French, and I suppose you could do no wrong by translating one further into Romanian (especially since it looks like they only have one edition, and that is French); if it's any help, I can either provide you with the French originals or try my hand at translating them a second time from French to Romanian.

(It looks though that you've "missed a spot" - the "superfluous" quote on I. I. Mironescu is the "de prisos" in the original. When [and if] you say it's okay, I'll give the text a few other copyedits, nothing drastic: I myself it's good to have a "fresh pair" of eyes after one's been concentrating on a text, because some things otherwise ignored get a chance to jump from the page.) Dahn (talk) 11:25, 16 December 2009 (UTC)

Andrei, I'm looking forward to other collaborations, and let me wish you a Merry Christmas for now. Best, Dahn (talk) 15:48, 25 December 2009 (UTC)

Bâsca River[edit]

Salut! Andrei, TE ROG SA NU MAI INTERVII (modifici, stergi)IN ASPCETELE CE CONTIN/REDAU INFORMATII STIINTIFICE PRIVIND RAUL BASCA. MULTUMESC!— Preceding unsigned comment added by Gabr ro (talkcontribs)

If you yell like that in Romanian, by no means you will make people think you are right. Are you sure you know what you are saying? From the mess you made of the Nehoiu article, where you added villages that belong to the Siriu commune, I take it that you don't know that area well. For instance, did you know that Bâsca Chiojdului is also refered to as the Bâsca River? And that in Wikipedia, using self-published sites as sources is not allowed? The article uses the naming from the sources it cites and was created as such by a known specialist in hidrology. Changing the terminology without the slightest summary or talk page comment is really not right.- Andrei (talk) 11:02, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

Apreciez interesul si engleza ta, dar am rugamintea sa nu te amesteci in probleme de hidrologie (debite), hidronimie(Bâsca), toponimie (Bâsca Chiojdului) pe bazinul hidrografic al raului Basca! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Gabr ro (talkcontribs) 13:37, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

With what arguments? because I can make the same request to you, especially now that I doubt you have any knowledge of the area, since you can't make the distinction between the town of Nehoiu and the Siriu commune. Will you do the same to everyone who questions your actions and sources?
I also appreciate your Romanian, but this is the English language Wikipedia and this discussion should be understood by everyone here.- Andrei (talk) 13:42, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

Hasdeu alumni[edit]

Andrei, I wonder if you could request at WP:CFR (or if you'd be all right if I made the request) to move to the simple Category:Bogdan Petriceicu Hasdeu National College alumni. Two reasons for this: a) to match Bogdan Petriceicu Hasdeu National College and b) there's only one institution with that name, so there's no need to disambiguate. Just like we have Category:Saint Sava National College alumni and not Category:Saint Sava National College (Bucharest) alumni, since there's only one Saint Sava College also. But we do have Spiru Haret National College (Bucharest) alumni, since there are three others by that name. - Biruitorul Talk 18:32, 10 February 2011 (UTC)

It is true, but you're right to revert[edit]

Indeed, it is true, and this is one of the topics missing from the article (which is very nearly crap as we stand). I've first read about this issue in Zigu Ornea's Extrema, where he mentions how the far right vilified PC as cavaler de Curlanda (the bad taste was a singular characteristic of such tribunes). Apparently, it was N. D. Cocea who first made it public, though the info I've found on this is scarce. PC himself did not hide his sexual preferences from his circle of friends, and not even from a larger audience, but he was a naturally private man in a country of bigots. Once the article moves to "higher ground", this info too will likely surface, as it should, and in any case it shouldn't probably be in the lede. For now, you're right to revert. Dahn (talk) 13:57, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

Maybe my revert was a bit hasty, but that IP did the same type of contributions in ro.wp. I don't object to it being added elsewhere in the article (even with the quoted source), but not in the first sentence, that defines the subject: only information relevant to his notability should be there.- Andrei (talk) 15:33, 15 March 2011 (UTC)
I agree, and I don't think that the revert was hasty, given the current state of the article - much more is needed before the info can also feature that sort of info. It's a lot of work though, so I thought I needed to raise the tiny issue before I consider working on the whole article. Dahn (talk) 16:09, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

Removing external link from an english webpage[edit]

Hello Mr. Andrei Stroe, Can i ask you on what base you have categorized my link addition as "spam" ? I have read all the articles related with external links policy and spam on Wikipedia and i couldn't find a similitude between my adding and any of the Wikipedia definition. Can you please explain me on which base you did and what means in "your definition" - "spam". Let's not over react in the cases where we shouldn't. I'm kindly wait for a professional (and with quote from Wikipedia policy) answer from your side. the discussion you can find it here : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Berca_Mud_Volcanoes

Thank you, — Preceding unsigned comment added by Crocos7777 (talkcontribs) 07:56, 27 August 2013 (UTC)

Here, we write an encyclopedia, not a web directory, so we cannot add just any link. Only links to reliable sources that add information to the article.
That one does not: we already have pictures on Commons, we have the coordinates with a link to all possible map websites ("how to get there"), and, of course, we have information on the subject matter.
And the fact that all you did on Wikipedia is add only a link this site to several articles is textbook spam.- Andrei (talk) 09:01, 27 August 2013 (UTC)

Localities in[edit]

Hi, any opinion on this: Category:Localities in Southern Bukovina, Category:Localities in Romanian Banat, Category:Localities in Crișana? On the one hand, these could get rather large (Transylvania has ~650 localities), and I can see disputes arising (is this in Oltenia or in Muntenia?). On the other hand, it could be an effective way of sorting out the country geographically. If we are to go ahead with the idea, there should be a Category:Localities in Romania by historical region. - Biruitorul Talk 14:55, 14 November 2013 (UTC)

Not necessarily a bad idea. If we go down this path and categories become overpopulated, we could probably break them down by historical administrative unit.- Andrei (talk) 16:56, 14 November 2013 (UTC)

Claudiu Teohari si Fara Cuvinte[edit]

Salut, am vazut ca ai mentionat in Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Fără Cuvinte ca presa romaneasca nu prea exista si asta face foarte complicata gasirea unor surse de incredere. Incerc sa creez un articol despre Claudiu Teohari (Teo de la Deko) si am folosit surse din Adevărul, Gandul, Kamikaze si Antena 3, printre altele. Nu cred ca vreo unul din cei care contesta articolul sunt vorbitori de romana si deci nu pot citi articolele sau vedea interviurile respective. Dezbaterea e aici Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Claudiu Teohari. Crezi ca poti da o mana de ajutor? Multumesc.cutkiller (talk) 08:09, 07 March 2014 (UTC)
