Ethnic Malays[edit]

This edit war is getting a little tiring. You added a lot of references to support your claim "and to some degree Javanese culture; however it differs by being more overtly Islamic than the Javanese culture". Yes, it is true they are similar to "some degree". But you could also say that Malays are similar to "some degree" with many other Austronesian cultures, of which there are thousands. If you look at the language classification [1] the Malay language and Javanese have over 1000 languages in the same language group. Out of those, the Malay language is in fact closer to many other languages such as Ibanic, Kendayan, Balinese, Madurese & Sundanese than it is to Javanese. So why have you mentioned Javanese specifically and not one of those other 1000 cultures, especially those which are more closely linked to Malay culture? You can of course find elements of one culture which have been adopted by another culture, but does that make them similar enough to mention? Its like saying American and Japanese culture is similar since they both like to play baseball. You could just as correctly say that Malays and Thais are similar "to some degree". The second part of the claim "however it differs by being more overtly Islamic than the Javanese culture" is wrong since it implies that religion is the only, or even the main differentiating factor. This is total nonsense.

The other part of the article you keep reverting about Malays being present in Southern Myanmar is wrong, and I suggest you do some research to find out which languages are spoken in Southern Myanmar to find out why. (Caniago (talk) 15:18, 11 May 2012 (UTC))

It is merely to demonstrate the similarities with other neighbouring groups. yes, the malays does have some numbers of similarities with other cultures such as those ibanic, kedayan, balinese, madurese & sundanese. but compared to those, the influence of the javanese culture is more prevalent. with the exception of kedayans, can you pinpoint other "obvious similarities" between those ethnics (ibanic, balinese, madurese, sundanese) compared to the malays? and for that matter, the cultural similarities with the banjarese and kedayan is also supposedly to be mentioned in the article.
and yes, the islamic cultural influence is more prevalent with the malays compared to the javanese, mainly due to the fact that islam adopted to be ethnoreligion of the malays becoming part and parcel to the malay culture, compared to the javanese that despite a huge proportion of muslims, there are also many christians and religios syncretism with kejawen and several traits with hindu-buddism is still being practised by many of them (which is well reflected on their culture itself, i.e from their mythical batik motives to their wayangs and their sanskrit driven names)
and no, the relation of the American and the Japanese is not really applicable with the article at hand. the relationship between the Malays to the Javanese may be comparable with the English to the "neighbouring" French. culturally almost similar with several obvious differences (linguistic and "religion" i.e. protestant english vs. catholic french; germanic english vs. romance french language) that sets them apart, nonetheless they are still culturally related in many ways.
they are present in the southern myanmar, i remembered watching a documentary on RTM1 some time ago. and several travel blogs does support this community (and yes, i am well aware that it could not be considered as a reference in wikipedia, nonetheless it is a considerably point of source to support the fact.) here. and the community does reside close to Phuket which does have a considerable number of malays (c. 30%), plus the influence of the malay does reflected by the name of the places (google map).
p.s and i wonder why you never improved the malay ethnic wikipedia with the exception of your act to trim down this page? (compared to the expansion on minang's article by you-know-who - which also has a considerable number of "unreferenced" claims on the topics which might as well as "some certain person's" "random personal opinion".) *cough* bias/double standard*cough*

Your recent addition of an image at the Yemenia article[edit]

Dear Egard89, please note that I have undone your edit by which File:Yemenia A330.jpg was added to the article. This has been done because of two reasons: First, your upload is of inferior quality compared to other images of Yemenia's Airbus A330s, and (as you can see at the respective page at Wikimedia Commons), I think the image is not properly licensed. Best regards.--FoxyOrange (talk) 13:52, 23 November 2013 (UTC)

ah, sorry for the error, the image itself was of good quality, though it has been cropted due to time-saving act. you can retrive the original image from here together with the author's origin on the image.--Egard89 (talk) 14:00, 23 November 2013 (UTC)

MH370 and Adam air[edit]

I think the Adam Air link can stay. While there is no connection between them, a flight that disappeared over Malaysia is of significance. --Rsrikanth05 (talk) 13:58, 16 March 2014 (UTC)

but then again, the air france flight was more correlated compared to the adam air case. plus, the latter had vanished above the indonesian airspace, Malaysia and Indonesia are not a same country. --Egard89 (talk) 15:43, 16 March 2014 (UTC)
