Bill Nelson (politician)[edit]

Hi, a quick google (I didn't go past the first page) could not find anything to support your edit where you've inserted a passage that Bill Nelson is the most vulnerable Democratic senator. Would you please support this assertion with a link on the page? Thanks Flawiki 00:34, 2005 Jun 22 (UTC)

Wikiproject Consulate and Empire[edit]

Hello Fdewaele,

first, let me introduce myself. My name is Frank Schulenburg, I come from Germany and have been contributing to the German Wikipedia since February 2005. My special field of interest is early modern history, especially economic and world history. You'll find more information on my german userpage.

I'm currently working on a project at the french wikipedia, which I've started a few days ago. You can find it at Wikipédia:Projet/Histoire du Consulat et de l'Empire. The main goal of this project is the collaboration between the different Wikipedias on the topic of the French Consulate and First French Empire (1799–1815).

I would like to invite you to contribute or just to take a look at it. If you want to take part in this project, please put your name in the list of participants.

Greetings from Goettingen to Ninove, --Frank Schulenburg 10:59, 18 November 2005 (UTC)

Article removal[edit]

I had no way whatsoever of knowing that you were working on the article. It was in the main article space, it was a single sentence...criterion A1. Sorry about the inconvenience. Looks great now. - Lucky 6.9 18:37, 24 November 2005 (UTC)

  • Warning taken.  :) Thanks for the chuckle. - Lucky 6.9 18:41, 24 November 2005 (UTC)

Hello[edit]

Hello Fred :) [ I'm assuming you are the person I think you are, given your name, your country, your qualifications - basically everything on your user page ;) ] --TheParanoidOne 21:30, 24 November 2005 (UTC)

Small world, indeed. You made a comment on the talk page of a user who is on my watchlist. I was pretty confident that it was you, so I just thought I'd say Hi :) --TheParanoidOne 22:15, 24 November 2005 (UTC)

You mean Lucky 6.9? BTW does this mean I now am on your watch list as well? :D --fdewaele 23:20 24 November 2005 (CET)
Yes, and yes. ;) --TheParanoidOne 23:16, 24 November 2005 (UTC)

Discussion on José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero[edit]

Hello, you have posted the following recently in the talk page of Zapatero:

"You two guys are becoming EQUALLY ANNOYING. You two both made one fine mess out of this once great article. The blame goes to both sides. - fdewaele 25 November 2005, 15:30 CET"

I am interested in your honest opinion about when the article was great and why. (I promise I ask this out of curiosity not because I am going to use it with any purpose, sincerely) Zapatancas 09:36, 28 November 2005 (UTC)

The time before all the badgering between you and Squeak started. yes, it could be improved - which article couldn't? - but the discussion about what "English" to use was surreal and has now degraded to a vendetta between you two... fdewaele, 28 November 2005 11:55 CET

Jan van Eyck[edit]

As his name indicates, van Eyck was probably originary from the medieval town of Eyck, i.e. Maaseik. So it is debatable whether he was "Flemish". Karl Stas 22:07, 28 December 2005 (UTC)

That certainly doesn't make him Dutch either. But in nowadays geographical and territorial descriptions, he would be a Fleming, as Fleming is used for all Dutch speaking inhabitants of Belgium. Couple this to the fact he spend most of his working time in the County of Flanders justifies calling him a Fleming. -- fdewaele 12:40 29 December 2005 (CET)

Not wholly unjustified, but still debatable. Current geographical designations are not very relevant for a painter who lived in the 15th century. "Netherlandish" seems a good compromise, also because art historians use the term "early Netherlandish painting" to describe the "Vlaamse Primitieven". - Karl Stas 18:40, 31 December 2005 (UTC)

Brooke Burns[edit]

Please don't add copyvio content to this article, especially when I've just removed it. If you'd like to re-create this article with the information it used to have, please contact User:Andman8 as he told me that he intends to do precisely that and could probably use the help. -Tim Rhymeless (Er...let's shimmy) 02:28, 31 January 2006 (UTC)

completely rewording an article - as I did - is NOT a copyright violation. If you follow your logic, all newspapers, etc would be copyright violations because they cover the same content and facts. It's not because it partly has the same facts, that it's an infringement of copyright. I wonder what'd you do with history books (sarcasm) -- fdewaele.

VWN en WCN[edit]

Beste allemaal Al enige tijd is er een Nederlandstalig chapter in oprichting, te vinden op http://nl.wikimedia.org . Dit wordt de Vereniging Wikimedia Nederland (VWN). Je kunt je interesse om lid te worden van deze vereniging hier aangeven.

Deze vereniging gaat eind augustus/begin september een Wikimedia Conferentie in Nederland (WCN) houden, volgend op Wikimania in Boston, gedeeltelijk erop inspelend middels een aantal discussiegroepen. Om iets dergelijks te organiseren is imput erg gewenst. Dus als je wilt meehelpen, of als je interesse hebt om bij een dergelijk evenement aanwezig te zijn, geef dat dan aan op nl.wikimedia. Ik hoop daar snel je imput tegemoet te zien! Met vriendelijke groet, effeietsanders 13:46, 25 February 2006 (UTC)

British Grand Fleet[edit]

Hello. I made some changes to the British Grand Fleet order of battle, but as I am not sure about them (only following logic there) and as you seem to have worked quite a bit on the article, could you please confirm ? Thanks, and best regards. Tovarich1917 01:42, 15 August 2006 (UTC)

Elisabeth of Bavaria (1876-1965) - thanks![edit]

Your explanation and the information you provided on my query are most useful. I'll rewrite the photo caption accordingly; hopefully we'll eventually identify the gentleman at her side in the archival photograph.

Meanwhile, I'm glad to have had the opportunity to learn of Queen Elisabeth. I'll be sure to mention her in my writing about Belgium under Nazi occupation, and at my first opportunity shall expand this article noting her intercession with Hitler (!) on behalf of Belgian Jewry. -- Thanks so much, Deborahjay 05:47, 23 August 2006 (UTC)

Colorado gubernatorial election, 2006 -- vandalism?![edit]

Regarding this edit, I'd appreciate it if you didn't refer to my edits as 'vandalism'. Massive, unexplained text removal by anonymous editors are usually either a mistake or a deliberate act of vandalism, and I reverted this one as such, albeit without digging any deeper into the actual contents. I clearly indicated my action in the edit summary, so your rude comment in your edit summary was uncalled for. If you disagree with my actions as an admin you are welcome to question them, but you will not gain much support here by referring to my actions as 'vandalism'. Owen× 18:30, 31 October 2006 (UTC)

adding such a large passage for a totally unknown write in candidate is either spamming or vandalism of the article. Plus it was added at a place in the article where adding it is very suspicious. I saw this large ad on to the article and suspected it to be as such, if I have offended you with this I'm sorry but you should have checked the content of what you added back... -- fdewaele, 1 November 2006, 23:00

The article on Quintus Tullius Cicero[edit]

Hello fdewaele! I have been working on the article on Q. Tullius Cicero. I am worried about the problem you mentioned on the discussion page 3.1.07: part of the article does not show. Would you kindly ask somebody to help us with this weird thing? I am just a novice in the "business", and would probably just get lost and confused going from one help page to another. By the way, thank you for rearranging the article to nice subcategories! It looks far better that way! Greetings from Finland!Tellervo 12:51, 4 January 2007 (UTC)

Battle of Eylau or Battle of Preussich Eylau[edit]

Well yes this would be alright in my opinion, if english historiography use name Eylau (which is wrong). Try to see translation of the text on Deutsch Wikipedia (Schlacht bei Preußisch Eylau). It's not my personal idea I just want to help you a little bit becouse your text is translated in several languages (english is common language)and those translations don't have redirect: Battle of Preussisch Eylau (in italian for example). So... little mistake makes many huge mistakes on many wikipedias... Unfortunetly there is a second reason why your Article should be changed, try to see articles on english wiki 1. - Ilawa (Deutsch Eylau) and 2. - Bagrationowsk (Preussich Eylau). As I understand name Eylau is refering to both this towns? as well as your Battle of Eylau? If I were you (but I'm not) I would copy the article Battle of Eylau to Redirect Battle of Preussich Eylau and create redirect: Battle of Eylau. Belive me I have read a lot of books from many sources about this battles and one very big compendium 93 pages in polish called "Bitwa pod Pruską Iławą" (Bitwa pod Preussisch Eylau)writen by Tomasz Rogacki ISBN 83-11-09807-7, en: Battle of Preussich Eylau.

I can only mention that I have created the article Battle of Pruska Iława in Polish and i have used from your article one information that marshal Ney said after battle "What a masacre! And for no outcome." You can use my images to make your article better, they are in public domain and I have exported them on Commons server (copy names of images on polish wiki and find them on commons). You should find more informations about this battle. It is one of very big importance. After this battle both armies were almost destroyed and soldiers faith in victory on both sides have disapired... This was the only reason why Napoleon was seeking on spring final victory to persuade Russia to peace table. After this Battle Napoleons soldiers were screaming Viva le Paix(Long live the Peace) instead of Viva l'Emperour(Long Live Imperor) as they usuall were doing. You must understand that every commander tried to find safe quaters for winter. In the time of Napoleonic Wars to lead an army in the middle of winter in -15 Degress was like Suicide that's why Benigsen has made huge strategical mistake trying to engage Napoleon in this time. If he would wait till spring when he was joined by reinforcments he would have some chances to win Battle of Friedland instead of this he has lost half of his men at Preussich Eylau.

Jalashwa/Jalashva?[edit]

Greetings! I noticed you change the link on USS Nashville (LPD-13), and realised there seems to be far more sources calling it INS Jalashwa (1920 G-hits) than INS Jalashva (741 G-hits). Sure, Google isn't the end-all for stats, but this seems odd. Where is the "official word" coming from regarding its proper name? -- Huntster T@C 17:57, 16 August 2007 (UTC)

Nobility of the First French Empire[edit]

I reverted one of the changes you made to the article Nobility of the First French Empire.

Louis-Alexandre Berthier is credited by the given source as being Prince de Neuchâtel as a sovereign title and I think also as victory title given to him for the battle of Wagram.However I can see that the source is not clear and could be causing confusion between us. But please see his sovereign title above and the last line of the paragraph on his victory prince title "Gules a on pale or three chevrons sable, and a chief of prince of the Empire (Neufchâtel)." Please drop me a line on my talk page if you still think my analysis is wrong and we can take it to the talk page of the article for a longer discussion. --Philip Baird Shearer (talk) 20:25, 6 December 2007 (UTC)

I knew you had been using that source because of some of the other edits you had made. But I now agree with you analysis, because I checked some other online sources one of which was this one. Unfortunately the Princes of Wagram article does not carry a valid source. --Philip Baird Shearer (talk) 09:33, 7 December 2007 (UTC)
Indeed, the article Prince de Wagram is even incorrect as it states that the title was created in 1808. Somehow, Napoleon new a year in advance that he'd fight at Wagram and that Berthier should be awarded that title... incorrect of course as the title was created in 1809. -- fdewaele, 11:51, 7 December 2007.

The Prague offensive undo[edit]

Hi, Sometimes the IPs are actually correct! Please see my undo note, but it is true that any German or Hungarian troops which were not killed did indeed surrender or were taken prisoner.--mrg3105 (comms) If you're not taking any flak, you're not over the target. 10:16, 22 February 2008 (UTC)

"All killed and captured" is far too vague and simplistic. You need to specify in how much killed, wounded and captured. Besides some troops might have escaped indivually and then just went home. Some were captured by the Americans, others by the Czech, others by the Soviets. Exact figures are what is needed. -- fdewaele, 22 february 2008,11:46, CET.
Yes, I appreciate your passion for precision, but if any did escape, the number was not significant for the purpose of an encyclopaedia. Prague was way too far from the Western Allied lines for this number to have been significant, and it was completely surrounded. Czechs were not patting any Germans and Hungarians on the head either. I doubt that the Red Army was taking numbers down, in any case, I have never seen any, the numbers provided varying by hundreds of thousands since some sources include all operations in Czechoslovakia. I will be working on the Eastern Front articles, so I will keep a lookout for the sources, and will update when these become available.--mrg3105 (comms) If you're not taking any flak, you're not over the target. 11:01, 22 February 2008 (UTC)

User:169.139.251.241[edit]

I have issued a vandalism warning to User:169.139.251.241 in response to his "massive deletion of information" from the Benjamin Pierce article which you later reverted. --TommyBoy (talk) 16:30, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

Unspecified source for Image:Belgium_great_coat.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg

Thanks for uploading Image:Belgium_great_coat.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, then you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, then their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Fair use, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 21:41, 31 March 2008 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Kelly hi! 21:41, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

Roman military confederation[edit]

Why there is a blank section Social War in the article? Otolemur crassicaudatus (talk) 08:22, 23 June 2008 (UTC)

I presume mainly because EraNavigator - who has done a terrific job on the article - hasn't written the section yet but felt he should already put the structure in place. When I have some time later tonight (and have my sources at hand) I'll start one encompassing Fregellae, the Social War and the aftermath of the civil war between Marius and Sulla. These events mark the end of the Roman military confederation as the citizenship was extended to the whole of Italia and the Italian allies becamse fully incorporated in to the Roman republic. -- fdewaele, 23 June 2008, 10:35.

Battle of Arausio[edit]

Hi, You added an interesting statement - The king of the Cimbri was indignant at this impudence and had Scaurus executed by having him burned alive in a wicker cage. Can you give me the source for your added statement to support my further research on the subject. Thanks.Dumbasser (talk) 10:19, 11 October 2008 (UTC)

The main source of Scaurus is Livy: Ab Urbe Condita liber LXVII Periocha:

M. Aurelius Scaurus, legatus consulis, a Cimbris fuso exercitu captus est, et cum in consilium ab his aduocatus deterreret eos ne Alpes transirent Italiam petituri, eo quod diceret Romanos uinci non posse, a Boiorige, feroci iuuene, occisus est.

The fact that he was burned in a wicker cage is mainly conjecture but this was the attested means as a Germano-Celtic practice of burning prisoners alive in wicker cages and has been described by various ancient sources -- fdewaele, October 11, 2008, 15:20 CET.

Max Cleland[edit]

Once Senator Max Cleland is confirmed by the Senate, go ahead and add his name to the list of secretaries, and add his new position to his biography. I added General Nicholson's biography to Wikipedia recently, as part of a long effort to put up biographies for every US commission and agency. This effort is easier than some, because the official biographies on US government web sites have most of the information needed, including photos. --DThomsen8 (talk) 14:20, 23 May 2009 (UTC)

This is a curious fact about the ABMC, from the official website:

The authorizing legislation for the American Battle Monuments Commission (36 U.S.C., Chapter 21) specifies that the president will appoint 11 members to the commission and an officer of the regular Army to serve as the secretary. President George W. Bush appointed BG (Ret) Nicholson to serve as secretary in January 2005. There currently are no appointed commissioners. --DThomsen8 (talk) 14:24, 23 May 2009 (UTC)
Hola, more questions here regarding American Battle Monuments Commission. You said:
"On May 21, 2008 President Obama tapped former Georgia Sen. Max Cleland to serve as the next Secretary of the American Battle Monuments Commission."
1) I didn't know that Obama was president in 2008?
2) Do you have a reference for that?
3) Oh, do you think "selected" or "chose" would be better than "tapped"? Should we use slang in an encyclopedia if we can avoid it?
Thanks > Best O Fortuna (talk) 02:50, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

Titus Statilius Taurus[edit]

A year ago, you tagged the article Titus Statilius Taurus as containing "inappropriate or misinterpreted citations" without leaving any remarks on the talk page as to what you meant. Could you take a look at the article in its current state to see whether your concerns have been addressed? If not, could you explain where you think the problems lie? Thanks.

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Redaktor Wikipedia 600px.png

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, will be commencing a a two-month trial at approximately 23:00, 2010 June 15 (UTC).

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under flagged protection. Flagged protection is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 17:56, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

Hugo von Kirchbach[edit]

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Hugo von Kirchbach, and it appears to be a substantial copy of http://www.gistek.net/cdv.html.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. The article will be reviewed to determine if there are any copyright issues.

If substantial content is duplicated and it is not public domain or available under a compatible license, it will be deleted. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material. You may use such publications as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. See our copyright policy for further details.

Proposed deletion of John J. Yeosock[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article John J. Yeosock has been proposed for deletion because, under Wikipedia policy, all biographies of living persons created after March 18, 2010, must have at least one reliable source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't take offense. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within ten days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one. Michig (talk) 21:15, 2 August 2011 (UTC)

List of field marshals of the British Army[edit]

Hi! Sorry to be a pain, but I removed the images you added to that list because they are Crown Copyright, and so using them there is against the non-free content policy. I don't much like it myself, but we can only use free images in most contexts (one exception is illustrating deceased persons in their biographical article if no free image of them is available, which is why they're used in the officers' articles but not the list).

Edit summaries, multiple consecutive edits[edit]

Hallo Fdewaele, and thanks for your contributions. A couple general editing notes if you don't mind: When you make a change to an article, please make a habit of providing an edit summary. Doing so helps your colleagues here understand the intention of your edit. Also it will also be easier for you and your co-editors to collaborate on articles if, instead of making multiple consecutive edits in rapid succession on an article, you use the "Show preview" button to view your changes incrementally before finally saving the page once you're satisfied with your edits. This will keep the edit history of the page less cluttered. Dank u wel, Eric talk 01:56, 26 October 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Belgian Army[edit]

Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you recently tried to give a page a different title by copying and pasting its content into Belgian Army. This is known as a "cut and paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is needed for attribution and various other purposes.

Unfortunately, we will have to temporarily delete the new article you created under speedy deletion criterion G6, so that the page you intended to move may be properly moved in a way that will preserve its edit history. To avoid this problem in the future, please use the "Move" tab at the top of articles in order to re-title them.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by visiting the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but 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 yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Beagel (talk) 15:26, 31 December 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for your edit, anyway it seem hard to understand the sense of the reorganization [1]. Happy New Year! --Nicola Romani (talk) 10:14, 5 January 2013 (UTC)

West Wing articles[edit]

I appreciate your concerns, however, you reverted my edits without contributing to the talk page, and then asked me to discuss things. If you want a discussion, please contribute to talk. The articles on West Wing characters violate the policy on in-universe; they are written as if these characters exist on their own. These characters do not exist and lengthy articles about their fictional doings are not appropriate. Kindly read the article "What Wikipedia is not" to learn about the use of indiscriminate information and the in-universe principle. thanks.Catherinejarvis (talk) 21:22, 31 January 2013 (UTC)

Get of your soapbox. You're acting very hypocritical: without debate YOU delete content, and then you go on accusing me of doing things without debate. I merely restored the ex ante situation in order to be able to have a debate without losing content. Besides nothing you claim is actually listed on "What Wikipedia is not". You are pushing a personal agenda. So please first have an open discussion on what should remain and what is to be deleted before destroying Wikipedia content. -- fdewaele, 31 January 2013.

Calm down, if you please. First, may I refer you to the pillar of Wikipedia: Assume good faith. I have no soapbox or agenda, and I am not destroying content - I am improving the articles by editing the in-universe style. Also, allow me to quote directly from "What Wikipedia is not": 1. "there is an important distinction what can be done and what should be done," 2. "An encyclopedia article should not be a complete exposition of all possible details," 3. "Wikipedia is not an indiscriminate collection of information" and 4. "merely being true, or even verifiable, does not automatically make something suitable for inclusion in the encyclopedia." If you would like to contribute to a rational discussion on the merits of keeping this in-universe style, please do so on an article's talk page.Catherinejarvis (talk) 21:55, 31 January 2013 (UTC)

Those are very vague guidelines which don't actually state that in-universe articles are out of bounds for Wikipedia. You are merely interpreting it that way (=POV). Please stop your crusade for now and have a rational discussion BEFORE deleting. Discuss such things first before you start deleting, and we'll all get along better. -- fdewaele.

Rebecca Hall[edit]

The anonymous editor who was vandalizing Rebecca Hall is now User:VALID REALITY and is ranting on talk pages that she is not American. Just for your information. Robert McClenon (talk) 22:02, 3 May 2013 (UTC)

Excuse me. What vandalizing? What the heck are you talking about? What ranting on what talk pages? I've moved on from your Hall rants. Stop trying to sell your actress to me or anyone else. She is not American in any way and neither are you. You need to stop ranting to others who state facts on Wikipedia and move on. --VALID REALITY (talk) 23:32, 3 May 2013 (UTC)

Kim Philby[edit]

Thanks for reverting that editor who keeps removing Bill Haydon from the article. I've reverted them at least twice on this point. I tried getting the article protected but the powers-that-be would only add "pending changes" protection. I suspect I'll be requesting semi-protection sooner rather than later. - Fantr (talk) 23:07, 16 May 2013 (UTC)

Dear Sir, I am not a vandal! It is completely unnecessary to reveal the name of the upper class character who is the mole in John Le Carre's Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. By revealing the name you spoil the book, TV series, and film for anyone who hasn't read it yet. I, for one, was quarter way through the book when I happened to glance upon your reference. By removing the name, all I'm trying to do is prevent other people from having the book, TV series and film spoiled for them. Yours faithfully, Julian. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Julian1961 (talkcontribs) 01:21, 17 May 2013 (UTC)

Beresina[edit]

Why you have deleted Larrey He was a member off Napoleons staff and a pretty doctor. He helped hundreds of men bewaring from dying.

Look at larrey at wiki.fr Napoleon said he was the bravest of the braves!He wrote about the berizina bridges and crossed them double times'!! Hello __79.206.127.104 (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 18:14, 28 August 2013 (UTC)

I don't dispute Larrey's importance - after all he is the father of modern battlefield medicine - but that was merely an unsourced anecdote written in bad English, which has no real place in an article of the battle itself. It's merely "la petite histoire". -- fdewaele, 28 August 2013.

New Cardinals[edit]

Hi. Not sure why you reversed an edit made by 105.227.43.240 regarding new cardinals to be created on 22 February 2014. I left your edit alone, but I did some googling and did find a press release by the National Catholic Register confirming that new appointments will be made on that date (http://www.ncregister.com/blog/edward-pentin/consistory-for-creation-of-new-cardinals-confirmed-for-february). Would the addition of the reference made here by enough? Juve2000 (talk) 19:47, 7 November 2013 (UTC)

Because 1. It was clearly unsourced, 2. it stated that "the next Cardinals will be created on 22 February 2013", which was suspicious and 3. it's an article about the currently living cardinals and not about future consistories. -- fdewaele, 7 November 2013.
I am inferring you would prefer NOT to have that edit re-instated, even if the reference (above) were added and the date was corrected. I assume the original edit was made to inform readers that there would be significant additions to the article on 22 February 2014. I do not wish to create an edit war, so I will leave it alone.Juve2000 (talk) 00:40, 9 November 2013 (UTC)

Phil Leeds and The Green Mile[edit]

I'm sure your intentions were good (although perhaps impulsive). Phil Leeds was not in the Green Mile. If you think he was, please provide a source. The Percy character was never shown as "old", and Leeds was dead when the film was made. Thanks. 107.15.207.152 (talk) 01:07, 14 January 2014 (UTC)

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Hugh Lowther, 8th Earl of Lonsdale until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. Flaming Ferrari (talk) 15:56, 8 March 2014 (UTC)

Sloppy work on Tiger class cruiser[edit]

Hi Fdewaele.

I saw your contribution to the Tiger class cruiser Talk page. Entirely agree with you. However, I've posted some material on the Tiger class Talk page myself that should explain the tactical rationale for those ships. A topic that the anonymous editor seems to have no knowledge of. Perhaps it will help future editors to reconstruct that article. I don't feel willing to do that myself, esp since there is so much wrong with it that it would perhaps be better to scrap it entirely and start over on a clean sheet.

German invasion of Belgium, 1914[edit]

Greetings, my main source for these articles is the British Official History, the 1914 volumes of which were published in the 1920s so I fear you've got a lot of Anglicised and obsolete spellings to correct. Apologies.Keith-264 (talk) 19:38, 9 August 2014 (UTC)

They're mostly not Anglicised names but either the French names of those Flemish towns or the old obsolete spelling of the name. I'll do my best to clean-up as much as possible -- fdewaele, 21:32 (CET), 9 August 2014
