Hi, I have noticed this warning. You left an embedded HTML-comment that you should probably have put in a little section on the article talk page. ClueBot interpreted it as vandalism. Go ahead, try the article talk page Talk:Baroque music. Good luck. - DVdm (talk) 22:18, 31 January 2014 (UTC)

Hidden notes[edit]

Bonjour,

Au lieu d'utiliser des "hidden notes" pourquoi ne pas utiliser un "template", à savoir (par exemple):

"Barocque" [clarification needed]

ou bien

"Barocque" [citation needed].

Il est assez probable que les bots seront bien plus tolérants.

En tout cas, Jerome Kohl n'a rien à voir avec le comportement du bot.

Bien à vous,

The Paul Dukas name muddle[edit]

Trophy.png The Paul Dukas name muddle
Ah no! I contributed edits on Paul Dukas' family background and suggested - without any references or evidence to back it up - that his father Jules Dukas may have had a Greek Jew descendant originally from Ottoman-era Greek Macedonia. I thought Ottoman-Greek Jews might have adopted the name Dukas/Doukas under the INFLUENCE of their Greek-speaking Christian Orthodox neighbours. This MIGHT explain why there were and still are other Jewish families in Britain, France and Austria-Hungary who bear the name Doukas/Dukas, since many Jews from Ottoman-era Greek Macedonia are known to have immigrated to these countries. But this idea is really only an interesting line of inquiry and not historical fact.

It is important to emphasize that even among most of those Greek-speaking Christian Orthodox families from Epirus, Greek Macedonia and elsewhere in northern Greece - where the late Byzantine Doukai and Komneno-Doukai were most active - who have Doukas/Dukas as a surname (or additional surname) VERY FEW of these will even claim descent from the Byzantine-era noble family. Most of those especially northern Greek families who have the name Doukas/Dukas in the final or middle position do so simply because an earlier ancestor probably adopted it for prestige reasons. Modern Greece has not maintained a living aristocratic tradition, not just because the end of the 1967-74 military dictatorship led to the deposition of the Greek monarchy (which in any case was not indigenous to Greece) but because Byzantine Greek aristocrats in the Ottoman period tended to marry into the Ottoman ruling family or the noble families of Christian Orthodox Russia and elsewhere in Europe. Hope this helps those interested in the name Dukas/Doukas. Thanks. A Gounaris (talk) 12:55, 4 February 2014 (UTC) A Gounaris (talk) 13:04, 4 February 2014 (UTC)

Hotel Crillon[edit]

I think there is a small mistake in your edit about the Hotel Crillon. It is indeed a luxury hotel, which is temporarily closed for renovation. (See their website). The Navy is at the other end of the block, in the Hotel de la Marine. Keep up your great editing work! SiefkinDR (talk) 18:19, 4 July 2014 (UTC)
