Lamia Joreige and my other contributions[edit]

Hi Elie. What do you mean, by invaluable (about my contributions)? Are the subjects or the way its written? What I've been doing since I joined to insert the contemporary Lebanese art scene was, till now, totally absent from Wikipedia. I've added institutions such as Beirut Art Center, Ashkal Alwan, etc. and artists such as Akram Zaatari, Lamia Joreige, etc. All these guys have gained recognition worldwide (just have to google them to see what I'm talking about). And I must say that in the Lebanese Artists sections, many people of lesser (much lesser) importance are present... Thx for advising me what to do cheers (Lea Sarraf (talk) 12:58, 22 January 2012 (UTC))


Sorry for me to have misunderstood !

Basketball[edit]

Just finished making the basketball article for the 2009 Games, with help from the Portugese wiki. However, I'm missing some key bits of information.

Firstly, only a women's contest was held. Was this always planned this way? Or was a men's tournament cancelled? Secondly, Cyprus were leaders of Group A but were disqualified and did not play against France for their final game. Any idea why they were disqualified? I've searched for ages and still not found anything. Are there any French sources that discuss this? Cheers. Sillyfolkboy (talk) (edits)Join WikiProject Athletics! 08:48, 9 October 2009 (UTC)

Excellent work. That should also be discussed on the main article in the "Games" > "Events" section above the "Sports/Cultural" section. I believe this bit of information could also give a good DYK if you want to put that in your suggestion at Talk:DYK! I'm almost done filling out all the competition results – just Table tennis to go. Sillyfolkboy (talk) (edits)Join WikiProject Athletics! 11:41, 9 October 2009 (UTC)
I'd forgotten about the Eurobasket competition. I assume that's the one you mean. I'll make a note that a men's tournament was scheduled but didn't go ahead due to a conflict with that tournament. Sillyfolkboy (talk) (edits)Join WikiProject Athletics! 11:50, 9 October 2009 (UTC)

Jeita photos[edit]

I've found some private photos taken outside the grotto in 1998, I'll scan them and upload them next sunday. FunkMonk (talk) 18:04, 10 October 2009 (UTC)

Here are three photos, I think the two first could be used in the article, and the third is just if we ever need one more for filer. They're all from right outside the grotto. The first one[1] is maybe the entrance or a café outside or something, don't remember, and the second is some kind of Jeita train, where you can see the teleferique arrival place in the background (I'm the boy on the left standing with the side to the camera by the way, my father took the picture, but I doubt he gives a damn if I release it under whatever license).[2] The last one is just a souvenir shop.[3] If you think any of them can be used, I'll crop and colour correct those ones and upload them to Commons.

Baalbek article[edit]

.

Thanks. I would cite a reference, but I have never found one. But I was there last year and the guy who looks after the quarry (has a cafe there) said there is a smaller stone in the next quarry. I went and measured it with a surveyor's tape, and it was substantially bigger. Don't have the measurements with me, but I seem to remember a meter wider and two meters longer. The evidence is in the photo.

There is also no great discussion in this section about the underground tunnels, which clearly demonstrate two construction phases on the site (one megalithic and one seemingly Roman). Again I have photos, but no references. Every reference I have found suggests that the entire site was Roman.


In addition, I have placed some more comments on the Baalbek discussion pages, as there is more that can be added to this page.

Speedy deletion nomination of Green Party of Lebanon[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Green Party of Lebanon requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a club, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guidelines for people and for organizations. You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you.

I just signed into my Wikipedia account for no reason at all (maybe I was a little nostalgic) and saw a message from you on my talk page. I'm sorry that my reply is like two months late—I'm sadly way too busy to contribute to Wikipedia anymore. But, it honestly makes me feel better knowing that people like you are there to take care of things. And do it superbly. You've done great a job with WP Lebanon and its child-articles.

Elie, Why did you delete "WISSAM SHEKHANI" page?[edit]

You deleted a very important page about a contemporary lebanese polymath "WISSAM SHEKHANI" who is so much contributing in the intellectual and cultural development of Lebanon. Why would you Elie delete aricles about lebanese intellectuals ?!! Aren't you lebanese? Don't you want to support Lebanese artists and inventors?! We need your full support please to bring back the page of "Wissam Shekhani"; the surprising issue that we found all the Lebanese singers and dancers in Wkipedia, but only rare Lebanese Intellectuals and Scientists !!! Are you deleting them? Regards, Fans of Wissam Shekhani Thank you —Preceding unsigned comment added by 94.96.174.161 (talk) 21:31, 27 November 2009 (UTC)

I donno where i should reply so ill do it here, the answer is quite simple please read WP:Notability. I have never heard of the guy, ill give an example of a notable lebanese scientist who has proven himself on the international scene Pierre Zalloua is a great man who ironically does not have a wikipedia entry in his name, so i am creating one right now. Wikipedia has rules, i make sure these rules are respected, do not take it personally, wikipedia is not a CV repository, it is not a fan site and is not a site to display vanity.

Unfortunately I didn't get any photos of the Eshmun Temple, and its one of the places I'm planning on spending time at on the next trip.

Arriving[edit]

In writing, there are are always small matters for possible improvement. (Arthur C. Clarke, after years, rewrote one of his fine stories, but didn't improve it in any substantial way, imho.) At some point, a writer needs to be "internally directed". I think you're there.

"Decent" → "descent"? Absolutely. But I'm not sure what you meant with "blonde" → "blond". — The Man in Question (in question) 08:17, 30 December 2009 (UTC)

hey sorry for putting my nose where it doesn't belong, i did not mean to upset you, it was probably my way to express how much i enjoyed reading your page. why "blond"?, it must be the influence of Mrs. Ljudmila our Russian- English teacher who favored UK English for some reason. Both are right mate, don't worry, technically i did not ruin your page :D . The way i see it, i say "blond hair" vs "she is blonde" _ " a blonde girl". Eli+ 21:26, 30 December 2009 (UTC)

No problem thanks. well she was one of the few requests made that i haeard of so i thought why not haha I honestly had no idea you were going to do the page until afterwards sorry lol but thanks again please feel free to add more info i did what i could based on scarce sources available, i didnt use arabic ones because usually use googletranslator(yeah i know not very accurate but lol but still gets the basics i need to know) since i cant read in arabic to verify whats written.

As far as admins go, we have 3 things we can do:
  • Warn
  • Protect
  • Block
Protecting is often the worst outcome because it's always the WP:WRONG version, so I tend to warn liberally and block when necessary. Hope that helps. Toddst1 (talk) 21:45, 30 August 2010 (UTC)

Greetings, Ellie plus! I just saw that you uploaded a picture of St. Rafqa to both Wikipedia and theworkofgodschildren.org. Is the picture in the public domain? JBogdan (talk) 19:01, 16 January 2011 (UTC)

I believe Jesus released this into the public domain, the only copyrighted material in the catholic church are representationsons of pope Benedict Eli+ 19:24, 16 January 2011 (UTC)
The New American Bible and the Roman Rite Sacramentary are copyrighted too.

Do you know where the picture is from? JBogdan (talk) 12:38, 18 January 2011 (UTC)

Main page appearance[edit]

Hello! This is a note to let the main editors of this article know that it will be appearing as the main page featured article on January 27, 2011. You can view the TFA blurb at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/January 27, 2011. If you think it is necessary to change the main date, you can request it with the featured article director, Raul654 (talk · contribs). If the previous blurb needs tweaking, you might change it—following the instructions of the suggested formatting. If this article needs any attention or maintenance, it would be preferable if that could be done before its appearance on the Main Page so Wikipedia doesn't look bad. :D Thanks!

Fair use rationale for File:AbuChabkeh 919840469.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:AbuChabkeh 919840469.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the file description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. GFOLEY FOUR— 22:14, 20 March 2011 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:Seyrig.gif[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Seyrig.gif. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file agreed to license it under the given license.

If you created this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en@wikimedia.org, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:File copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. You may wish to read the Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Magog the Ogre (talk) 00:07, 31 December 2011 (UTC)

Mseilha fort[edit]

Hi Eli, the info comes from the panels that are scattered throughout the site and placed after the renovation undertaken a few years ago. I believe they can be credited to the Ministry of Tourism and the Ministry of Culture. I remember reading the AUB scholars had a hand in it but I can't find a confirmation of that. I also have several nice high rez pictures of the site, but I don't know how to add a gallery to the article. Also, the panels refer to the site as Mussaylha not Mseilha, though I'm not sure how to modify that Artephius (talk) 22:57, 27 January 2013 (UTC)

I'm Lebanese but I live in the US. I visited the fort two years ago. It's fairly impressive in terms of its location and quite uncommon. I had always been told its a crusader castle (the wiki article said so previously too) so I was surprised to learn it was not. Artephius (talk) 23:20, 28 January 2013 (UTC)

Also, about writing in Arabic, of course it is up to you if you want to contribute or not, but there is a bit of barrier, at first, in writing in Arabic. When I saw you editing in English, I could see that you were very quick and knew lots of shortcuts, because you are use to it. Where as when you move into the Arabic version, you may end up feeling like a noob, which can be frustrating. Anyway my point is, after a short period, you will find a joy in writing in Arabic, it is hard to explain why, but thats my experience anyway. Either way, hope we can stay in touch.--Aa2-2004 (talk) 11:54, 29 January 2013 (UTC)

Paul Bedson[edit]

I realise that he as a hard worker on articles to do with Lebanon, but he was not blocked by pro-Christian and anti-Lebanese editors, and his sock puppetry (see Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Paul Bedson/Archive is completely unacceptable, as is his threat to continue to create socks unless he is unblocked. Please understand that no editor may edit on behalf of a banned or blocked editor (and he's both) or ask them to editor for them. Here is a link to the discussion about his behavior: Wikipedia:Requests for comment/Paul Bedson. Dougweller (talk) 11:43, 22 March 2013 (UTC)

I have not suggested, implied or even thought about editing for Paul and I do not endorse his use of sockpuppets either. Paul's contributions and knowledge in the area of middle eastern archaeology are not matched by any current editor's. The problem with Paul is that he was too passionate and he spent a lot of time and effort trying to prove his _often unacceptable_ POV. I found the judgement over Paul very swift and hasty, some people are hard to convince and I think he should've been given more room to prove his good will.
Doug, i believe in second chances, and I wholeheartedly believe in people's good will and I just hoped that Paul's passion could've been channeled. People grow tired from bickering eventually and I think Paul would've complied... with some patience from fellow editors. I have noticed that Paul was using original research a long time ago, and I stopped following what was happening here because i got busy so please excuse me for jumping in in defense of Paul.
I hope none of the parties involved in edit warring with Paul take my empathy for him as a personal offence; i know firsthand how hard it is to deal with people trying to push their POVs.Eli+ 12:12, 22 March 2013 (UTC)
Thanks very much for this good reply and I didn't think you'd be editing on his behalf - I post like that as I don't want anyone ever blocked for not understanding something that they would have avoided if they understood it. Paul did have a number of chances - a lot of us worked with him over a considerable period of time. And his sock puppetry the first time he was blocked for sock puppetry has no excuse, let alone his continued sock puppetry and statement that he will continue to sock puppet unless unblocked. Still, YMMV which is fine. Again, thanks for this response. Dougweller (talk) 12:44, 22 March 2013 (UTC)

I would have loved to take fresh pics to show the current state of the expanded mansion but it is impossible to do so since it has become the French embassy and taking images is not allowed for security reasons.

Law School of Beirut[edit]

I've begun the GA review for Law School of Beirut; more detailed comments will follow soon (hopefully tomorrow), but for now I've noted a few initial concerns if you're interested in getting started. Thanks for your work on this one! I'm looking forward to reviewing it in more detail. -- Khazar2 (talk) 02:19, 14 June 2013 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Marhaba. As a token greeting to you for thanking me on my work on adding many items on Cedar, I have now developed further another page you had established: Harutyun (given name). I have also established as further acknowledgement to your work Cedres, which is reminiscent of Cedar in French. Bon courage werldwayd (talk) 12:05, 22 August 2013 (UTC)

I am a Lebanese Armenian Canadian presently residing in Montreal... I dedicate most of my free time to Wikipedia... and feel happy (blessed) when I add useful information... that's about it. Here a dedication to you from a Lebanese German artist I like very much from Zahle actually called Fady Maalouf in "Blessed" [7]. Or check "Into the Light" [8], "Show Me Your Love" [9], "Amazed" [10], "Anytime" [11], "Neyla" [12] In Lebanon he started as Alex in "Ya leil" [13] Plus of course I forward to you the signature song that expresses my personal outlook on life. It is from Games Maker Choir in "I Wish For You The World" [14] and that I usually dedicate to all those who visit my user page -- Enjoy. werldwayd (talk) 12:54, 22 August 2013 (UTC)

As a final greeting to you, I realized Rony Seikaly, the most famous Lebanese-American basketball player had no page in Arabic Wikipedia. I had attended him playing in Beirut with the Lebanese national side during the time of Elie Mechantaf, Fady el Khatib and Ghazy Boustani. But until today, no article on him... I have added that today. See [15] Here are some of his DJing tracks: "Fly Away" featuring the wonderful Craig David [16], "The World Is Beautiful" [17], "Thanks for Everything" [18] and a reportage about him by the New York Times [19] Regards werldwayd (talk) 16:46, 22 August 2013 (UTC)

You never knew Fady Maalouf... And Seikaly being into music... LOL Now that's proof Wikipedia does fabulous job in surprising people. The music section of Rony Seikaly in English (which I developed entirely from scratch) is an eye opener. To add more basketball content to Arabic Wikipedia, immediately after Seikaly, I added a page for the player Alaa Abdelnabi, an Egyptian American player that fascinated me in Duke and went on to play in Portland Trail Blazers and Celtics, amongst others. See [20] Here's some brief but great highlights of him [21] - werldwayd (talk) 21:33, 22 August 2013 (UTC)

FA congratulations[edit]

Just a quick note to congratulate you on the promotion of Law school of Beirut to FA status recently. If you would like to see this (or any other FA you may have helped to write) appear as "Today's featured article" soon, please nominate it at the requests page; if you'd like to see an FA on a particular date in the next year or so, please add it to the "pending" list. In the absence of a request, the article may end up being picked at any time (although with 1,324 articles in Category:Featured articles that have not appeared on the main page at present, there's no telling how long – or short! – the wait might be). If you'd got any TFA-related questions or problems, please let me know. It's lovely to see a different type of article come through FAC - well done. BencherliteTalk 11:32, 11 November 2013 (UTC)

Don't worry about the lack of an image of the law school - TFAs quite often run without images, and in fact I think File:Meister von San Vitale in Ravenna.jpg (Justinian) could work quite well. See what you think. BencherliteTalk 12:00, 11 November 2013 (UTC)

Congratulations from me as well. This article has come a very long way. It's great to see such august founts of scholarship represented so well in this modern fount of scholarship! – Quadell (talk) 15:55, 12 November 2013 (UTC)

Thank you both :) -Elias Z 08:15, 13 November 2013 (UTC)

The blurb as it stands now is below:

The Emperor Justinian

The law school of Beirut was a center for the study of Roman law in classical antiquity located in Beirut. It flourished under the patronage of the Roman emperors and functioned as the Roman Empire's preeminent center of jurisprudence until its destruction in 551 CE. The earliest written mention of the school dates to 239 CE, when its reputation had already been established. The school attracted young, affluent Roman citizens, and its professors made major contributions to the Codex of Justinian. The school achieved such wide recognition throughout the Empire that Beirut was known as the "Mother of Laws". Beirut was one of the few schools allowed to continue teaching jurisprudence when Byzantine emperor Justinian I (pictured) shut down other provincial law schools. The school's facilities were destroyed in the aftermath of a massive earthquake that hit the Phoenician coastline. It was moved to Sidon but did not survive the Arab conquest of 635 CE. Ancient texts attest that the school was located next to the ancient Anastasis church, vestiges of which lie beneath the Saint George Greek Orthodox Cathedral in Beirut's historic center.

Thank you, proud Kafir, for quality articles on Lebanese culture, history and people, such as Law school of Beirut and Temple of Eshmun, National Museum of Beirut and Elias Abu Shabaki, for gnomish work in categories, assessment and page moves, - you are an awesome Wikipedian!
