Ricardo Ferreira[edit]

Hi Arnoutf, please note that this Ricardo Ferreira (who plays in Portugal) is a different player than the one that got banned for 50 years (who plays for Portugal Futebol Clube in the fourth level of Switzerland). Thanks, ElfjeTwaalfje (talk) 15:15, 1 November 2014 (UTC)

Actually his clubs full name is Futebol Clube Paços de Ferreira, so that suggests it is indeed the same person. But indeed I probably mixed it up with a Swiss based futebol clube (why would it be named liked that??). Thanks for correcting Arnoutf (talk) 15:36, 1 November 2014 (UTC)

European Union[edit]

Why you edit? the larges cities are London and Berlin, and not Paris.. Paris is the second metropolitan area, and not city!--8Sirlo6 (talk) 22:36, 1 December 2014 (UTC)

Read the discussion before editing. Cities are defined different in different countries; so city proper is an utterly useless measure. The city of London has less than 10,000 inhabitants; yet nobody argues to use that number. Arnoutf (talk) 18:22, 2 December 2014 (UTC)

"City of London" is only a storic and administrative district of city, like "Ile de la Citè" in Paris, "Centro Storico" in Rome, or "Centro" in Madrid, ecc...

Every Union-European knows that:

  • the largest city for population are
    • 1) London (8,5 mil)
    • 2) Berlin (3,6 mil)
    • 3) Madrid (3,3 mil)
    • 4) Rome (2,9 mil)
    • 5) Paris (2,2 mil)
  • the largest city for areas are:
    • 1) London (1.572 kmq)
    • 2) Rome (1.285 kmq)
    • 3) Berlin (892 kmq)
    • 4) Madrid (607 kmq)
  • the largest city for population of urban area are London, Paris, Madrid, Milan and Barcelona
  • the largest city for population of metropolitan region are:
    • 1) Greater London Authority (21 mill),
    • 2) Paris (12 mil.)
    • 3) Rihne-Ruhr (12 mil)
    • 4) Milan (9 mill)
    • 5) Randstad (7 mill)
    • 6) Madrid (6,5 mil)

(1) Topical discussion on the topic article site please
(2) Everyone knows the moon is made out of Swiss cheese. In other words - reliable source. Also your statement is obviously not true as I am from the EU.
(3) There is only one London city (inhab 7300). The larger London city is not a formal city so should not be counted as such, if you demand on using the term city. If you do however allow broader definitions of cities, there is no good reason to limit Paris to the formal city lines (Ile de Paris has never been all of Paris, while city of London used to be all of London).
(4)You can one-to-one compare cities across countries, as much as you can one-to-one (that is without conversion factor) compare distances in miles to those in km; city definitions differ across countries and hence they simply cannot be compared (look at discussion for a lot of reliable sourced reasons why not) Arnoutf (talk) 18:31, 3 December 2014 (UTC)

“Greater London” has a mayor exactly like “Roma Capitale”, “Land of Berlin”, and like “Ville de Paris” and “Ayuntamiento de Madrid”. I don't write certainly the two thousand existing sources here, than they find everywhere, and however the text says “largest cities”: if we wants maintain Paris, we must changes in “largest urban areas”, or join greater London, Land of Berlin, Ayuntamiento de Madrid, and Roma Capitale before Ville de Paris.--8Sirlo6 (talk) 18:59, 3 December 2014 (UTC)

Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 request for arbitration declined[edit]

This is a courtesy notice to inform you that a request for arbitration, which named you as a party, has been declined to be heard by the Committee. The arbitrators felt that they would rather see this issue brought to WP:AE for enforcement of the discretionary sanctions which are already authorised for the topic area. Please see the the Arbitrators' opinions for further potential suggestions on moving forward.

Bartolomeo da Bologna rating[edit]

Hi, you recently demoted Talk:Bartolomeo da Bologna to Start class from B class noting that it lacked the depth for a B class article. I'm curious about what material about the composer is deemed missing. He is a medieval composer about which next to nothing is known; nearly every known or asserted fact about his life or musical style has been included in the article. The article is already more extensive than the New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians article on him. With obscure medieval composers what is in WP is often everything that is known. Thanks! -- Michael Scott Cuthbert (talk) 22:43, 11 January 2015 (UTC)

You are right it is more than start. However for B or higher the referencing should be improved (more inline), and a the composer should be placed in somewhat more historical context. How did he relate to others in his time, did he follow common traditions or did he innovate and if so in what, who did he influence etc. Arnoutf (talk) 13:07, 18 January 2015 (UTC)
