Disambiguation link notification for June 25[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Lim-Sandžak Chetnik Detachment, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Komovi (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.

Deliberate insertion of factual errors[edit]

Why have you added things to List of fortifications in Serbia, when you know they are not in Serbia? bobrayner (talk) 00:35, 29 June 2014 (UTC)

Bobrayner, your questions to me are never good faith questions aimed to resolve dispute. They are always disruptive bad faith loaded questions aimed to push your POV and bait other editors to violate wikipedia rules. Please be so kind not to repeat this kind of questions and not to expect that I am going to ever reply to this kind of questions of yours.--Antidiskriminator (talk) 07:49, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
It's quite simple.
1. The article is a list of things in Serbia.
2. You added more things which are in Kosovo.
3. Serbia and Kosovo are different countries.
4. This is an encyclopædia, and we expected to give readers accurate - rather than misleading - informaton.
You know all four points. So why do you do things like this? bobrayner (talk) 12:46, 29 June 2014 (UTC)

WikiCup 2014 June newsletter[edit]

After an extremely close race, Round 3 is over. 244 points secured a place in Round 4, which is comparable to previous years- 321 was required in 2013, while 243 points were needed in 2012. Pool C's Smithsonian Institution Godot13 (submissions) was the round's highest scorer, mostly due to a 32 featured pictures, including both scans and photographs. Also from Pool C, Scotland Casliber (submissions) finished second overall, claiming three featured articles, including the high-importance Grus (constellation). Third place was Pool B's , whose contributions included featured articles Russian battleship Poltava (1894) and Russian battleship Peresvet. Pool C saw the highest number of participants advance, with six out of eight making it to the next round.

The round saw this year's first featured portal, with Republic of Rose Island Sven Manguard (submissions) taking Portal:Literature to featured status. The round also saw the first good topic points, thanks to Florida 12george1 (submissions) and the 2013 Atlantic hurricane season. This means that all content types have been claimed this year. Other contributions of note this round include a featured topic on Maya Angelou's autobiographies from Idaho Figureskatingfan (submissions), a good article on the noted Czech footballer Tomáš Rosický from Bartošovice v Orlických horách Cloudz679 (submissions) and a now-featured video game screenshot, freely released due to the efforts of Republic of Rose Island Sven Manguard (submissions).

The judges would like to remind participants to update submission pages promptly. This means that content can be checked, and allows those following the competition (including those participating) to keep track of scores effectively. This round has seen discussion about various aspects of the WikiCup's rules and procedures. Those interested in the competition can be assured that formal discussions about how next year's competition will work will be opened shortly, and all are welcome to voice their views then. If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article candidates, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews. If you want to help out with the WikiCup, please do your bit to help keep down the review backlogs! Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck!

Re: Đurđevdan uprising[edit]

Thankfully, I'm no longer alone in trying to argue this - at Talk:Đurđevdan uprising, another editor came up to tell us:

Title: Are there other alternative names that could be considered as a title or redirect? First paragraph: The first paragraph should include the actual date, the English name for the holiday (St. George's Day), the two parties/forces involved, and the location.

If you want to continue trying to convince anyone that the title which excludes all this relevant information is so good that it cannot even be contested with a cleanup tag - you need to come up with a better way to do it. Otherwise, the only effect this communication will continue to have - is to annoy me. --Joy [shallot] (talk) 11:29, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

If you're going to continue failing to comprehend what I already told you, this communication has no meaning. The reality of this bizarre situation is what is harsh here. You're insisting that I engage in a RM process while I've already opted to try to engage all of us in a more general RFC discussion. Neither process will help us build consensus in and of itself, but it should be obvious to anyone who has any experience with Wikipedia discussions that interrupting an already started RFC with the start of an RM - is not going to be particularly helpful. You've heard me say it many times already, but I have to repeat it again - it would be WP:wikilawyering - putting form before function. --Joy [shallot] (talk) 12:18, 5 July 2014 (UTC)
I honestly don't know what to tell you at this point. I've explained why I think the tag is justified at the article Talk page and this talk page on several occasions now. --Joy [shallot] (talk) 19:03, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

Help request on Momčilo Gavrić article[edit]

Hi, I have a problem centered around the Momčilo Gavrić article that I would like to request some help with, if possible.

User:Moca1810 is constantly changing a part of the article to "At the age of 8, he was promoted to the rank of kaplar ...", but without any source to back it (the biographical dictionary source that I found says 10). He constantly reverts me when I restore it as it was, and sends me angrily formulated e-mails where he tells me that he's a descendant of Momčilo Gavrić, that his statement is the correct one, and that I'm being disrespectful.

I have tried to show him WP:OR without succeding - he seems to think that I'm somehow being insulting by asking him to provide a published source for the claim.

Do you have any suggestions on what to do here? Since you're a fluent speaker, could you possibly explain how things work on Wikipedia and its source requirements? Thanks in advance - Anonimski (talk) 21:28, 2 August 2014 (UTC)

Anonimski, I am topic banned "on topics involving 'Serbs and Serbia 1900-current' (broadly construed)", so I can not help you there. Sorry.--Antidiskriminator (talk) 00:03, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

Albania in 1913[edit]

Hello there Antid.. Hope you have a nice time. It appears I need your advice in Epirus. Although Albania'a independence was signed in Nov. 12 and the state was internationally recognized the following year, with its borders delineated the following months, there is strong objection that Albania 'wasn't a newly established state that time' [[1]].

Another issue that you may shed some light is the supposed conquest of Skanderbeg in northern Epirus [[2]]. As fas as I know there was nothing under Skanderbeg's rule south of Berat.Alexikoua (talk) 13:43, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

WikiCup 2014 August newsletter[edit]

The final of the 2014 WikiCup begins in a few short minutes! Our eight finalists are listed below, along with their placement in Round 4:

  1. Smithsonian Institution Godot13 (submissions), a WikiCup newcomer, finished top of Pool A and was the round's highest scorer. Godot is a featured picture specialist, claiming large numbers of points due to high-quality scans of historical documents, especially banknotes.
  2. Scotland Casliber (submissions) is a WikiCup veteran, having been a finalist every year since 2010. In the semi-final, he was Pool B's highest scorer. Cas's points primarily come from articles on the natural sciences.
  3. Nepal Czar (submissions) was Pool A's runner-up. Czar's points come mostly from content related to independent video games, including both articles and topics.
  4. Oh, better far to live and die / Under the brave black flag I fly... Adam Cuerden (submissions) was Pool B's runner-up. Another featured picture specialist, many of Adam's points come from the restoration of historical media. He has been a WikiCup finalist twice before.
  5. Wales Cwmhiraeth (submissions) won the WikiCup in 2012 and 2013, and enters this final as the first wildcard. She focuses on biology-related articles, and has worked on several high-importance articles.
  6. Florida 12george1 (submissions) is the second wildcard. George's points come primarily from meteorology-related articles. This year and last year, George was the first person in the competition to score.
  7. Colorado Sturmvogel 66 (submissions), the third wildcard, was the 2010 champion and a finalist last year. His writes mostly on military history, especially naval history.
  8. Canada Bloom6132 (submissions), the fourth and final wildcard, has participated in previous WikiCups, but not reached any finals. Bloom's points are mostly thanks to did you knows, featured lists and good articles related to sport and national symbols.

We say goodbye to this year's semi-finalists. Herm Matty.007 (submissions), Ohio ThaddeusB (submissions), United States WikiRedactor (submissions), Idaho Figureskatingfan (submissions), Greece Yellow Evan (submissions), Portugal Prism (submissions) and Bartošovice v Orlických horách Cloudz679 (submissions) have all performed well to reach this stage of the competition, and we hope they will all be joining us again next year.

There are two upcoming competitions unrelated to the WikiCup which may be of interest to those who receive this newsletter. The Stub Contest will run through September, and revolves around expanding stub articles, especially high-importance or old stubs. In addition, a proposal has been made for a new competition, the GA Cup, which the organisers plan to run next year. This competition is based on the WikiCup and aims to reduce the good article review backlog.

There is now a thread for brainstorming on how next year's WikiCup competition should work. Please come along and share your thoughts- What works? What doesn't work? What needs changing? Signups for next year's competition will be open soon; we will be in touch. If, at this stage of the competition, you are keen to help the with the WikiCup, please do what you can to participate in review processes. Our finalists will find things much easier if the backlogs at good article candidates, featured article candidates, featured picture candidates and the rest are kept at a minimum. As ever, questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck!
