Noot voor of achter de punt?[edit]

Beste Erik,

m.b.t. de plaats van een noot ten opzichte van een leesteken: mijn inzicht is dat indien de noot slaat op de betreffende alinea, die dan achter de punt komt en indien de noot slaat op de zin ervoor. — Preceding unsigned comment added by JanDeFietser (talkcontribs)

Beste JanDeFietser. Nee, hier moet ik je toch teleurstellen, denk ik. Volgens mij zijn de Britten (en misschien ook andere Engelstaligen) veel strikter in hun typografische conventies dan de Nederlanders, en in bijvoorbeeld het MHRA Style Book (maar ook in veel andere stijlboeken) staat:
If possible a footnote reference number should be placed at the end of a sentence so as to interrupt the flow of the text as little as possible. (...) A footnote reference number should follow any punctuation except a dash, which it should precede.
Niets over een mogelijk verschil tussen alinea's en zinnen, en daarover heb ik ook nooit iets gelezen. Sterker nog, ik heb in Engelse boeken nooit een voetnootcijfer voor een leesteken zien staan, ook niet indien de noot sloeg op de zin. Op de Engelse wiki zie ik het soms wel anders, maar ja, daar kan iedereen op kliederen, of hij nu in Nederland of Pakistan woont. Overigens vind ik een voetnootcijfer voor het leesteken ook foeilelijk, omdat een enorme afstand ontstaat tussen woord en leesteken, vooral op een computerscherm. In een boek kan je het cijfer tenminste nog heel klein afdrukken, met weinig wit eromheen, waardoor het niet zo storend is. Kortom, een leesteken behoort in mijn beleving gewoon aan het woord vastgeplakt te zijn, maar wie ben ik? Heel aardig dat je reageerde. Vr.gr., --ErikvanB (talk) 04:36, 22 February 2010 (UTC)
Ik vind het precies andersom ietwat lelijk, zo'n afstand tussen de informatie en de noot die verantwoordt waar ze vandaan zou komen - maar misschien is dat een kwestie van wennen. Wat zou het Brown, Little-stijlboek erover vermelden? --JanDeFietser (talk) 05:18, 22 February 2010 (UTC)
Geen idee, ik ken Brown, Little niet... Is dat iets om me voor te schamen? Hoe het ook zij, kijk ook eens even hier: Wikipedia:REFPUNC#Ref_tags_and_punctuation (en ook nog hier: Wikipedia:Citing_sources#Summary). Vriendelijke groet, --ErikvanB (talk) 18:32, 22 February 2010 (UTC)
Bedankt voor deze verwijzingen. Iets niet weten en dat gewoon eerlijk erkennen is zeker niet iets om je voor te schamen. Brown, Little staat voor de uitgeverij. Of was het nou toch Little, Brown? --JanDeFietser (talk) 18:27, 23 February 2010 (UTC)
Dank je wel. Je laatste opmerking bracht een glimlach teweeg. Veel plezier met rondfietsen door Wikipedia. Vr.gr., --ErikvanB (talk) 20:24, 23 February 2010 (UTC)

cctuning.com.ar[edit]

Hi man, why is it that u constantly erase the cctuning.com.ar link I ever write on my town's page across Wikipedia? It is not spam, coz it is NOT a company or a firm, it is just a site where people from Monteros or Tucumán can check out recent events of Tuning car and bikes shows in this province. For instance, Monterosnet.com.ar is also linked across different Wikipedia pages on Monteros, and it is a site where there is some interesting info about the town as well. Besides, Monteros page in Portuguese on Wikipedia has been a contribution made by myself, translating and correcting some info from the Monteros page in Spanish. So, i would hopefully like that I be not acussed of spamming coz it is not the point. My greatest regards.

  • Hi Thetucu. First of all, please don't take it personally when I remove your links. Secondly, I really appreciate your contributions to Wikipedia. But as you probably know, Wikipedia is a common target for spammers wishing to promote products or websites. I believe a website about car and bike shows has little to do with a general article about Monteros. Your additions looked suspicious, especially because they were cross-wiki contributions. Also, your edits seem to come from different IP addresses. This is why I have reverted your edits and why other people have done the same thing on at least seven occasions. The following table shows the links to cctuning you appear to have added:

Piha[edit]

Dear Erik. Please check the new version link. There should be no problem with the last version - it has no commercial value and is dedicated to the history of surfing. We live at Piha and we are the part of its community which is about surfing, surfing and surfing. We are sorry for the wrong links on the DKand DE pages. If you allow our history links there we will do Piha page on Wiki in other languages. Regards Phil. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 125.236.243.225 (talk) 09:04, 3 January 2012 (UTC)

  • Well, I'm afraid the link has been removed again, but not by me this time. Anyway, thank you for your explanation. Regards, --ErikvanB (talk) 15:52, 3 January 2012 (UTC)

Claudia[edit]

Dear Erik. my name is Claudia Zimerman, I'm Mr. Zimerman's daughter. He used to have an official wikipedia page made for him by the polish government. This page has mysteriously disappeared and has been replaced by a kind of fan page. There are major errors in his biography, like his birthdate, etc. Apparently Mr. Zimerman does not have the "status" to correct these kinds of mistakes on his own page. I have tried to do it in his place on the 15th of january, but you have undone my editing. Why? We would appreaciate it if you could at least let us replace the very bad snapshot of uncertain origin with his official photograph (from an official photo shooting, taken by "Kasskara", also known as Mat Hennek) which I uploaded and to which he has the rights and can dispose as he wishes. May I ask you to re-establish the changes I have made on the 15 january, or remove the snapshot, please? In the future, how can I do these changes myself? Thank you for your help. My email is claudia.zimerman@gmail.com --Dechantrelier —Preceding undated comment added 19:51, 25 January 2012 (UTC).

  • Dear Dechantrelier/Claudia, I have not undone your editing, except for the photograph, which appeared to be a copyright violation and has been removed from Commons (not by me personally, though). I cannot remember exactly what was wrong with the copyright license, but as you undoubtedly know, a license on Wikimedia Commons must meet certain conditions and can only be granted by the copyright holder. (See Commons:Licensing.) Unfortunately I cannot put the picture back, but you can upload it again or upload another one, as long as you make sure it has the proper license. As for the errors in the biography, I can't see any reason why you — or Mr. Zimerman for that matter — couldn't correct them yourself. But I advise you to fill in the edit summary when you do (providing a reliable source if you can), so that other editors will be less inclined to revert your edit. Kind regards, --ErikvanB (talk) 06:39, 27 January 2012 (UTC)

Help request[edit]

Hi there. I see you know how to make interwiki links. (I do not.) Could you please help me fix Boyoz interwikies? Danke u. --E4024 (talk) 17:52, 13 September 2012 (UTC)

  • Hi. I think the interwiki's are OK, but I have added the Spanish interwiki: here. --ErikvanB (talk) 18:01, 13 September 2012 (UTC)
    • Is that correct or not? --ErikvanB (talk) 18:02, 13 September 2012 (UTC)
Not. The correct one should be "Bollo", only "Bollo", not "de maiz". (That is another thing.) Thanks all the same.--E4024 (talk) 18:04, 13 September 2012 (UTC)
OK. The Turkish and Spanish website don't have the article then, I think. --ErikvanB (talk) 18:06, 13 September 2012 (UTC)
They do, but a bot made wrong iw link. Never mind, I will ask someone else. --E4024 (talk) 18:09, 13 September 2012 (UTC)
Thank you. Good luck. --ErikvanB (talk) 18:39, 13 September 2012 (UTC)

Remotion of References[edit]

Please note ErikvanB (talk): Do not confuse spam and references. Do not remove references from articles again, it is vandalism. -- 199.212.70.135 (talk) 01:34, 16 November 2012 (UTC)

Orthodontics[edit]

Please stop deleting harmfully imaging in orthodontic articles! Stop your untoward behaviour! Thanks. Odontocrate (talk) 17:43, 18 November 2012 (UTC)

  • No, YOU stop your unwanted cross-wiki behaviour! This image is inappropriate for an encyclopedia. That's why it's continuously being removed by everyone. Thank you. --ErikvanB (talk) 18:21, 18 November 2012 (UTC)
The policy is Uploading shock images, inappropriately placing explicit images on pages, or simply using any image in a way that is disruptive. and I haven't violated it noway! And also I believed that contribute to different wikis isn't a wiki-crime, nay it was a good way to help Wikipedia and Wikimedia! Odontocrate (talk) 21:15, 18 November 2012 (UTC)
Anyway, it is a terrible picture. --ErikvanB (talk) 21:29, 18 November 2012 (UTC)
So I haven't violated any Wikipedia policy, but you don't like that image and you think that your style opinion justifies the brutal all-wiki cancellation of it. You have a bad cross-wiki behaviour, not me! Odontocrate (talk) 20:04, 19 November 2012 (UTC)

Saurer F006[edit]

Stop deleting the external picture of the Saurer F006, you can delet it when a picture of the F006 is on wikicomons. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2A02:1205:5014:B210:9594:6BA2:692A:4F8B (talk) 18:25, 15 April 2013 (UTC)

  • Got the message but I don't agree - nor does anyone else. ErikvanB (talk) 18:30, 15 April 2013 (UTC)

This picture shows a seldom exemplar of the SaurerF006, and as long as no picture of it is on wikipedia this is the best solution . Stop censor pictures! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2A02:1205:5014:B210:9594:6BA2:692A:4F8B (talk) 18:38, 15 April 2013 (UTC)

Stop cenzorship! Deleting the galery of Saurer Trucks is surpressing informations. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2A02:1205:5014:B210:D135:E816:60F4:1401 (talk) 16:07, 17 April 2013 (UTC)
