Wing Chun[edit]

Perhaps a better wing chun table is warranted. I dont know, i suppose too much depth could get really complicated and alot of actual practitioners would argue about who practises real wing chun and who doesnt. However, the current list is sorely lacking.--Grisha H 17:43, 7 July 2006

I made if for Ngo Si Quy which is why there isn't much detail but its just a word file flow chart. If you want to make it more detailed I can send you the word doc and you can get as detailed as need be then take a screenshot and then upload the image.--Esemono 03:58, 8 July 2006 (UTC)

Hi, I made a corrected version of the wing chun lineage diagram you produced. There are several important connections which were either missing or inaccurate. I've stayed away from anything provocative or disputed (like the existence of Leung Bik, for example), and only corrected information which is uncontroversial and is the common description given by those lineages. Please take a look :) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:VinhXuanLineage_corrected_1.1.jpg JeffieFreedom (talk) 21:47, 10 December 2014 (UTC)

Re: Ha! Ha! Guy[edit]

Yep, I won the auction. The box is currently mounted to the wall of my cubicle at work. I do not have a digital camera, but I will probably be getting one for Christmas... in the meantime, I could probably use a scanner to scan in a picture of it. Better than nothing!

re animations[edit]

I agree, they aren't animating when thumbnailed. Weird. If this hasn't been brought up with tech, it needs to be. --Golbez (talk) 16:47, 6 January 2010 (UTC)

The tech village pump, or the technical channel on IRC. I apologize for not getting off my ass and doing it myself, I'll go mention it now. --Golbez (talk) 18:15, 9 January 2010 (UTC)
Duh, I should have checked it right away. It's been brought up here. --Golbez (talk) 18:20, 9 January 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, but something went wrong, and it stopped making thumbnails for all animations. --Golbez (talk) 17:39, 13 January 2010 (UTC)

Just thought you might get a kick out of this...[edit]

I am currently undergoing a project to write articles on all of the Governors of American Samoa who are not covered on the project. I just thought I might point something funny out to you. You created an article called Thomas C. Latimore back in 2006; while his disappearance makes him notable in its own right, most of the sources on him completely miss the fact that he was a Governor of American Samoa as well, albeit briefly. Since you are obviously interested in the man, I figured this fact may intrigue you (it's in the article now). Cheers! Scapler (talk) 03:20, 23 February 2010 (UTC)

Chris Masters[edit]

If you really want to get verification for Australian snipers kills why not write to Mr Masters asking him to substantiate his claim? I am a journalist covering defence matters, perhaps his agent would allow me to pass on his e-mail for you? Once you receive verification and it is in print you can then cite it. Your problem is that The Australian Telegraph will not verify Mr Masters claim, they have not published a story detailing the shots and refuse to verify. From what I understand the forthcoming book is no different, just a vague claim about a shot 400m longer than any other in recorded history. When Craig Harrison beat the world record he did it by 40m and that was only due to the ambient density of the valley floor, for someone to claim that two unknown snipers not only beat that shot but beat it by FOUR HUNDRED metres is unbelievable to say the least. The Barrett's M82 and M107 have a sub MOA to 600 yards and a MOA of 2.0 to 1800 yards, do you see my point? Best wishes. Twobells (talk) 16:57, 12 January 2013 (UTC)

Balkans Animation[edit]

Balkans Animation 1800-2008.gif
The Dobruja.

Hello!

Very good job on the Balkan animation map! However, I'd like to suggest a few minor corrections:

  • 1796: The Venetian Republic, besides parts of Dalmatia and the Ionian Islands, owns 4 cities on the Greek mainland: Butrinto, Parga, Preveza and Vonitsa/Vonizza. These should (could) be green on your map.
  • 1797: Napoleon and Austria basically share the Venetian Republic. Dalmatia and the Venetian Province go to Austria (should be red on the map) while the Ionian islands and the aforementioned 4 cities are annexed by the French Republic (should be blue). Besides, the Cisalpine Republic is formed, and the northern part of the Papal States should be light green from then on, as this is very much the same State as the Italian Republic (1802-1805) and the Kingdom of Italy (1805–1814).
  • 1799: the French Ionian islands are lost to a Russian-Turkish fleet. The map correctly references the creation of the Septinsular Republic in 1800, but it should include the city of Parga until 1819, while the cities of Butrinto, Preveza and Vonitsa become Ottoman.
  • 1805: the Austrian Venetian Province and Dalmatia are lost to the Kingdom of Italy, while the continental part of the Kingdom of Sicily in conquered by France, which placed a French king at its head but does not annex it.
  • 1809: following a new Austrian defeat, the Illyrian Provinces, a French imperial territory, are formed out of territory taken from Austria (part of today's Slovenia and Croatia) and the Kingdom of Italy (Dalmatia). Its borders are correct in the map, but not its creation date (1800, should be 1809).
  • 1815-1859: The northern part of the Papal States (the Papal Legations) are returned to the Holy See, while they are red (Austrian) on the current map during this period.
  • The Dobruja border between Romania and Bulgaria is not correct. It is set in 1878 at its present-day location (further South of the border shown on the map). It is moved South in 1913, with South Dobruja going to Romania until 1940, except a short period in 1918-1919 when Bulgaria controls a zone extending North of the current border (actually, it could be the limit shown on the map for the 1878-1913 period). It is correct after 1940.

I believe these are the changes worth mentioning in the map history, whereas some other changes are less historically significant or too quickly reverted:

  • In 1799, the Cisalpine Republic is occupied by Austrian-Russian forces, before a French reconquest in 1800. Short-lived Roman Republic (1799) and Parthenopean Republic appear in Southern Italy.
  • In 1801, the Cisalpine-Austrian border is slightly changed at the Treaty of Lunéville, moving from a line along the Mincio river to the Adige
  • In 1808, the Kingdom of Italy is augmented to the South, annexing present-day Marche while the remainder of the Papal States become French departments.

Do you think it is possible (and worthwhile) to make these amends? Dodecanese and Crete also changed hands a few times during the period, but as the map does not currently cover them, we should leave them out of it. Place Clichy (talk) 11:33, 27 November 2013 (UTC)

Talk page archives[edit]

Hello, thanks for creating talk page archives. However, after checking out your efforts at the talk page for Rafael Trujillo, I've discovered that you've been creating archives the wrong way for many years, as recently as April 2013. It's worth noting the following:

  • Archive names should contain a space before the number (i.e. "Archive 1" rather than "Archive1".
  • At the top of the archive page there should be a template such as {{talkarchive}}.
  • Instead of using a manually written-out archive box, you can use the code {{archivebox|auto=yes}} to automatically generate an archive box, assuming the pages' titles are formatted in the way I described above.

I've gone ahead and corrected these problems in all the archives that you've created over the years. Graham87 08:44, 14 February 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:1979 U.S. embassy burning in Islamabad - Loyd Miller.jpg[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:1979 U.S. embassy burning in Islamabad - Loyd Miller.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a non-free file with a clearly invalid licensing tag; or it otherwise fails some part of the non-free content criteria. If you can find a valid tag that expresses why the file can be used under the fair use guidelines, please replace the current tag with that tag. If no such tag exists, please add the {{Non-free fair use}} tag, along with a brief explanation of why this constitutes fair use of the file. If the file has been deleted, you can re-upload it, but please ensure you place the correct tag on it.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Geogene (talk) 22:06, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:NataliaBessmertnova.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:NataliaBessmertnova.jpg. I noticed that this file is being used under a claim of fair use. However, I think that the way it is being used fails the first non-free content criterion. This criterion states that files used under claims of fair use may have no free equivalent; in other words, if the file could be adequately covered by a freely-licensed file or by text alone, then it may not be used on Wikipedia. If you believe this file is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and add the text {{di-replaceable fair use disputed|<your reason>}} below the original replaceable fair use template, replacing <your reason> with a short explanation of why the file is not replaceable.
  2. On the file discussion page, write a full explanation of why you believe the file is not replaceable.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Safiel (talk) 01:57, 12 December 2014 (UTC)

List of computer criminals[edit]

I've just found this list, featured over five years ago, and noticed some inconsistencies in formatting that clearly indicate newer entries. Indeed, several appear to have been added since 2009, and although I've made efforts to better integrate them into the list, I'm not sure all of them are really notable. (It doesn't help that many of the source links, original and other, are now broken.) Perhaps the list's talk page would be a better place for this, but considering that you took the list to FL and gave assurances there about the ability to maintain standards of notability, I thought you might be better qualified than most to tell what ought to stay in and what needs to get out.
