Userboxes[edit]

I have used some of your userboxes, and I also want to make some of my own. How do I do that? Savie Kumara 07:16, 10 July 2007 (UTC)

The problem is, those instructions confuse me. I don't know how or where to start, or anything. Savie Kumara 00:27, 11 July 2007 (UTC)

I figured out how to make a userbox, and you know what? It WAS easy! I was just too chicken to click on the "Create Userbox" button. Savie Kumara 05:06, 17 July 2007 (UTC)

Portuguese Empire and Nova Scotia[edit]

I don't think NS was ever part of the Portuguese Empire. Can you reference this? Andrew647 23:04, 11 October 2007 (UTC)

Dejima Portugese colony?[edit]

I posted the following at Dejima talk:Dejima, but it may have escaped your notice:

I don't see how Dejima could be understood to have been a Portugese colony; but if there were some source which supported that perceived construct, the discovery would be a real eye-opener. Frankly, I'd rather be wrong than right on this one. Bluedenim added Dejima to the category of Former Portuguese colonies; and I reverted that edit.

In the undo-edit summary, I invited further discussion here. --Ooperhoofd 17:48, 16 October 2007 (UTC)
The Portuguese first arrived in Japan in 1542 (on the island Tanegashima). Later they were allowed to set up a trading post on the island Hirado (in front of the southern island Kyushu). The Portuguese sent each year a ship from their Chinese settlement Macao to this island, trading silk for silver. Their missionary work brought them in conflict first with Toyotomo Hideyoshi and later his successor Tokugawa Ieyasu. The Dutch ship "De Liefde", chartered by the Flemish merchants Pieter van der Hagen and Johan van der Veeken, arrived in 1598 in Japan. The English helmsman Will Adams could convince the shogun that the Dutch had a different religion than the Portuguese. Portuguese trade was restricted in 1603. Several missionaries were executed. Quaeckernaeck, captain of de Liefde obtained a trade permit from the shogun in 1605. The English also obtained a trade permit in 1613 but withdrew in 1623. The Spanish, who operated from Manila, also stopped trade with Japan in 1624. The Portuguese came under strict control in 1623. The shogun ordered in 1634 the construction of Dejima, an artificial island in the bay of Nagasaki to house the Portuguese. After the quelling of the Shimibara rebellion in 1637, all trade relations with the Portuguese were forbidden. From then on, the Dutch moved to Dejima. During all these years, the Portuguese could never claim to possess a colony in Japan. On the contrary, the Portuguese were strictly controlled by the shogun. JoJan 20:22, 16 October 2007 (UTC)
JoJan -- yes. That was an excellent and remarkably concise summary of the history of Portugese trade. You have indeed delivered a perceptive narrative of well-accepted facts; but it happens that Bluedenim is a Wikipedian from Portugal. Our understanding of Kyushu's chronology of historical events is coherent, plain, accepted; but I suppose it may well be that there were those in Portugal or Rome who -- in the 16th-17th centuries, perhaps -- did construe something they called a "colony" at Nagasaki ...? If so, wouldn't you rather be wrong than right on this one -- if only for the sense of astonished surprise? Do you see my point?
This sounds a little bit like the kind of "counter-historical" exercise Niall Ferguson proposed at Oxford a few years ago.
On the other hand, it's probably nothing more than a simple mistake. I dunno. In any case, this edit did capture my imagination a little bit.--Ooperhoofd 21:59, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

The fact-of-the-matter is that I'm really interested in this ... --Ooperhoofd 21:12, 17 October 2007 (UTC)

José Correa de Serra[edit]

I wonder if this tangential Portugese connection with Dejima will be of interest to you?

Isaac Titsingh was one of the VOC men in the far east who returned to Europe in the late 1790s after the Napoleonic Wars had effectively destroyed the company. For a time, Titsingh had headed the outpost at Dejima. When Titsingh arrived in London, he was invited to join the Royal Society. It happens that the founder of a similar scientific society in Lisbon, José Correa de Serra, joined others in nominating Titsingh for membership. --Ooperhoofd 13:19, 21 October 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Sporting Clube de Portugal.png[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Sporting Clube de Portugal.png is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Another editor has added the "{{prod}}" template to the article Flags whose reverse differs from the obverse, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but the editor doesn't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and has explained why in the article (see also Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not and Wikipedia:Notability). Please either work to improve the article if the topic is worthy of inclusion in Wikipedia or discuss the relevant issues at its talk page. If you remove the {{prod}} template, the article will not be deleted, but note that it may still be sent to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

Flags whose reverse differs from the obverse[edit]

I think this would be better done as a category than as an article. Caerwine Caer’s whines 17:44, 5 January 2008 (UTC)

I think it has potential as an article, there is obviously text to be written on that subject. --Bluedenim 18:26, 5 January 2008 (UTC)
Nothing that says that there couldn't be an article and a category, with the article having a few examples and discussing why some flags have different sides, but leaving the listing of all flags that have this distinction to a category. Caerwine Caer’s whines 18:48, 5 January 2008 (UTC)

Dejima/Nagasaki harbor[edit]

FYI: You have exchanged messages with me before. I was formerly known as User:Ooperhoofd, but I changed my name to User:Tenmei. This only makes sense the context of Japanese era names, but I am finding myself spending an inordinate amount of time focusing on various aspects of this subject -- so it makes sense to those who have been following my progress in developing the Wikipedia nengō articles and links.

Some time ago, you may recall that Ooperhoofd questioned the inclusion of Dejima in the Portuguese Empire context ...?

I had hoped that over time you might uncover one or more Portuguese sources which verified this fact. Have you anything to share? This past weekend, I did discover something I only scanned quickly -- something about the Japanese ceding some part of Nagasaki to Jesuit control? Alas, I seem to have mis-placed the paper on which I made notes; and I'm embarrassed to admit that I can't now remember which book .... In due course, I'll find it again, of course; but for now, I can only report tantilizing, but inconclusive findings.

A second aspect of a broader question, for me, is whether or not the Portuguese template is properly appended to that article on Dejima island. When I re-locate the mis-placed citation, you will be able to respond effectively to any critics who don't yet understand that the template is likely justified for Nagasaki -- but this yet-to-be-cited "proof" would only apply to a pre-1640 Nagasaki. As you may know, the artificial island of Dejima was created in the late 1630's and it was occupied exclusively by the Dutch after 1641. So, I'm guessing that the ultimate consequence of my research will be that I argue for the removal of the template in that one location. For now, I'm just letting you know where my casual research seems to be leading. More later. --Tenmei (talk) 16:45, 6 March 2008 (UTC)

Permission to copy one of your Userboxes[edit]

It has recently come to my attention that I should ask permission before copying a Userbox from a Userpage to use on my own Userpage. In checking my Userboxes, I found one that I must have copied from you at some time called User:Bluedenim/Autumn. I apologize, but may I continue to use it? Thanks. Thomprod (talk) 18:07, 11 March 2008 (UTC)

Hello, Thomprod
You didn't have to ask permission to use the userboxes, i created them precisely for that; to be used by all Wikipedians. Not only you can use them, as you are welcome to use them. I'm happy you liked some of the boxes i created. If there's anything you like here, just pick, you can use them as you like. Enjoy it and happy editing.

Question about a userbox[edit]

Hi. I have a question about one of your userboxes. I'm using {{User:Bluedenim/Centrism}} on my user page, but I can't get it into the correct horizontal alignment. It sits several pixels above the other boxes and throws everything off. I feel sure that it's an issue with the template code but I don't know nearly enough about that stuff to know how to fix it myself, so I don't know what to do other than ask you.

I appreciate anything you can do or tell me to help me out, and I thank you for any time that you give toward rectifying the problem. -- edi (talk) 23:22, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

Copied from my talk page for reference:
