Propaganda films[edit]

I think we are getting a little too specific about the categories. I think Category:Nazi world War II propaganda films is a little redundant, we could just put the Nazi propaganda link there. Same with the Japanese cat.--Dudeman5685 23:12, 10 February 2007 (UTC)

In re Ginzburg-Landau theory, please note that the title phrase should be highlighted at its first appearance, like this. (Someone corrected this after you wrote the article.) Michael Hardy 01:10, 11 Dec 2003 (UTC)


I'm afraid I don't know the answer to your question re:Brest-Litovsk (though something in my head is saying the borders differ), but I thought I'd suggest that posting the question at Wikipedia:Reference desk might get you an answer....we do marginally well at covering quesitons posted there, especially clear ones like yours.

Adhan in Turkey[edit]

Hi, I saw the section you wrote there and I was just wondering if you could source it, if you do this it will make it easier for others to verify what you have written is correct and lessens the chance that it will be removed. gren 12:58, 14 July 2005 (UTC)

Category:Interlingua[edit]

Good idea, there. Thanks from me (a diehard interlinguist)! Almafeta 13:39, 14 July 2005 (UTC)

Hi there! Yes I did look at Interlingua some time ago, but I felt too much temptation to indroduce a full Romance grammar! I had my own inter-Romanic experiment once - the obligatory Lord's Prayer follows in my lashed-up language. What do you think?
Nostro padre que é en le cielo
Santificado seja tu nome.
Venga tu Reino.
Faga-se tu voluntat,
Assí en la terra como en le cielo.
Nostro pan quotidano,
Da-nos hoji e pardona-nos nostras débitas,
assí como nós pardonamos a nostros debitores.
E no nos laixes cader en la tentation,
Ma libera-nos de mal. Amen.
The other point is using vocabulary at odds with Romance practice - such as using attaccos rather than attentatos to refer to terrorist attacks, or to use the horribly laboured charpa de capite (seen on INTERLNG) rather than pannello de collo or even hijab (which seems international enough to me). One addition to the vocabulary I'd like to introduce - can I call a puppet government "un governamento fantoche"? (FR/ES/PT fantoche, IT fantoccio) GCarty 14:22, 14 July 2005 (UTC)
Two questions re your own inter-Romance tongue: what does the x (laixes) mean?
It's pronounced "lashes" - the orthography is Catalan-inspired. It's a subjuctive of "to let" (cf. French tu laisses, Italian lasci) GCarty 16:15, 14 July 2005 (UTC)
My own tastes find it odd, because of the the way that the possessive adjective nostro sounds, but that's me.
And what do the accents mean -- stress change, or sound change?
Accents function as in Spanish. GCarty 16:15, 14 July 2005 (UTC)
Also note that Interlingua didn't intend to be purely Romantic, although I sometimes replace Interlingua's verb rules with a faux-Romantic set to make it sound like an obscure European tongue.
Finally, regarding "fantoche": French uses fantoche, but Spanish uses títere -- if the interwiki links on puppet state are correct. For now, I'd keep it, but add the {{parola-non-official}} template to the top of the article. Almafeta 15:11, 14 July 2005 (UTC)
"Títere" is more common, but "Fantoche" is sometimes used too, at least if a Google search is anything to go by. GCarty 16:15, 14 July 2005 (UTC)
Also, feel free to get your own account there! Almafeta 15:15, 14 July 2005 (UTC)

Friendly suggestions[edit]

Hi GCarty, I would just like to remind you to always leave an edit summary when making changes to articles. It really helps your fellow editors and only takes a few seconds.

The problem is that when I am changing categories for dozens of articles those "few seconds" add up! Are there any programs for changing categories in articles en masse, so that I don't omit edit summaries for "fast-fingered freddie" reasons? GCarty 19:15, 19 February 2006 (UTC)

I would also like to suggest that the minor edit tag might not be appropriate when you are deleting and adding categories in the article. It is really intended for minor changes such as fixing a spelling mistake. Best wishes -- FP <talk><edits> 02:30, July 26, 2005 (UTC)

Template:Campaignbox Balkans Campaign[edit]

Is there a way to work it into the Battle of Crete battlebox?

Thanks[edit]

Thanks for the extinction fix on the Leptictidium page. After doing so many of those, I was bound to slip up at least once.

--aremisasling 18:23, 19 December 2005 (UTC)

Dinosaur cat[edit]

I noticed you've put Category:Dinosaurs into Category:Prehistoric animals. This seems redundant to me because it's already in Category:Prehistoric reptiles, which is itself in Category:Prehistoric animals. If there's some pressing reason why it needs to be in both the parent and child cat then let me know (should probably note it on the Talk page actually), otherwise it seems pointless. Soo 16:18, 9 January 2006 (UTC)

Some people regard dinosaurs as reptiles, while others regard them as a unique class of animals, with both reptilian and avian characteristics. I put Category:Dinosaurs into both Category:Prehistoric animals and Category:Prehistoric reptiles in order to accommodate both these viewpoints. GCarty 17:20, 9 January 2006 (UTC)

Executed secret agent Doihara[edit]

I'd reverted your edit [1] Doihara was executed but not as or because of being secret agent. Please try to use categories only for most important things/features and check whether they really apply. TIA Pavel Vozenilek 00:41, 18 January 2006 (UTC)

CFD redirects[edit]

Please don't use hard redirects in categories. There is a bug in the mediawiki software which causes these to work incorrectly. There is more information about this at Wikipedia:Categorization#Redirected_categories If a soft direct is necessary, use {{Category redirect|target category}}. Most times, though, if you are working on the cleanup section of WP:CFD, the soft directs are there so a bot will move the articles, so nothing needs to be done. --Kbdank71 15:41, 27 January 2006 (UTC)

Battle of Tours[edit]

whatever your faith, please do not vandalize the name of Emir Abdul Rahman Al Ghafiqi Abd al Rahman, or remove his name from the list of dead -- his life was sufficiently important in history that he deserved to be mentioned in the list of those killed. Your edits are ill-informed, hopefully you don't know better. If you do edit, please leave an explanation. Otherwise, as in this one, it is simply reverted. old windy bear 21:50, 9 February 2006 (UTC)

I assume that you are not aware of the conventions for battleboxes - a dagger (†) beside a commander's name indicates he was killed in the battle. GCarty 08:30, 10 February 2006 (UTC)
no problem, however, you should have left a message in discussion, and his name still belongs in the causalty lists, as he was quite renowned in history -- most users do not know that the dagger indicates death in battle, and the information in the battlebox shows them at once that a significant personality of the times was killed. I had removed the dagger again, till i came here and read why, i then restored it, but left the Emir's name in the losses - which is also appropriate. I have been working on these articles for a year. I welcome any help, but don't know what someone is doing - like with the dagger - if they don't tell me, which is why I suggested leaving a note in discussion on any article when such is done. Cheers!old windy bear 09:53, 10 February 2006 (UTC)

GCarty I understood and agreed with your edit this morning returning the category to the proper place, since Tours took place during the great period of Islamic expansion, during their wars of conquest. But Carty, please, leave a note in discussion so that the guy whose edit you changed understands why! I started to do so, but decided instead to come back here, and ask you to. Your edit was historically correct, but people generally on these history articles explain such an edit, so the other party understands. You were correct on the dagger -- I did not know (Palmdogg is the battle and campaign box king; i compile the lists! -- but now that I do, all is well). But please, for the sake of avoiding editing wars, leave the guy an explanation on the discussion page? It also establishs that you know what you are doing, which you obviously do. This is not being smart with you, but an honest request to leave an explanation so the person who thought -- because Tours was a victory for the Chirstian forces opposing the Islamic Conquest, that it was not a part of the wars in that era -- understands that they were wrong. Thanks! old windy bear 17:10, 10 February 2006 (UTC)

GCarty Carty, you have still not explained your revert of an edit a user made in good faith, not understanding the nature of the battlebox, or why the person who thought -- because Tours was a victory for the Chirstian forces opposing the Islamic Conquest, that it was not a part of the wars in that era -- understands that they were wrong. If you don't start leaving an explanation, one that is sourced, your edits will be reverted. In this case, I happen to agree with you. But wikipedia rules dictate that when you revert - as you did with this -that you leave an explanation in the discussion area, so the person understands the logic of the revert, or leave such in the revert itself. You did neither. Please post it, or I will revert yours, and let the military project coordinator decide the matter. You are simply acting without any respect towards users editing in good faith. Please leave explanations!old windy bear 18:46, 11 February 2006 (UTC)

GCarty 1) the Battle of Tours is generally regarded as the turning point of the Muslim invasions of Western Europe, but it is not the end of them, as you would know if you studied the life of Charles Martel, or the Islamic Conquests -- invading forces were turned back again at River Berre and Narbonne by Charles Martel in 736-7; 2) the Muslim conquering presence in western Europe did not fully end until the retaking of the City of Narbonne by Charle's son, Pippin the Short. I reinstated the explanation placed at the Battle of Tours. if you feel this is wrong, feel free to discuss it on the explanation page, or talk to user:Kirill the project coordinator for the Military Project. In any event, your history was incorrect that Tours signaled the end of Muslim invasions of Europe, though western historians, and Muslim historians of that era, regarded it as the "turning point" of said invasions.old windy bear 15:08, 13 February 2006 (UTC)

Since you have edited this article, you may want to look at the discussion on this deletion nomination.

Category:Anti-Islam activists[edit]

Greetings GCarty, Although I don't see that you've done so previously, I wanted to give you a friendly note to suggest not adding the likes of Ayaan Hirsi Ali to this category. Anyone who does is very likely to encounter resistance in regards to the whole category. Cheers. Netscott 14:48, 5 July 2006 (UTC)

I believe I understand why you've been encountering resistance to your utilization of this category and it is due to what seems to be a blanket utilization of it. There are those who are anti-Islam activists like Ali Sina but then there are those who are anti-Islamist (or ism) activists like Ayaan Hirsi Ali. Might I suggest making Category:Anti-Islamism activists? or Category:Anti-Islamist activists? Cheers. (Netscott) 18:58, 14 July 2006 (UTC)
I'd prefer Category:Secularists of Muslim descent. --GCarty 15:23, 17 July 2006 (UTC)
Maybe Category:Secularists of Muslim heritage or Category:Secularists of Muslim lineage as there is no Muslim ethnicity/race. (Netscott) 12:51, 19 July 2006 (UTC)
OK, Category:Secularists of Muslim heritage it should be... --GCarty 13:28, 19 July 2006 (UTC)

Reconquista[edit]

Hi GCarty, regarding this edit, I would say that it was not only the Umayyad who respected Jews and Mozarabic Christians, but also the Abbadid of Seville (this is the only Taifa kingdom I'm familiar with). Regards, E Asterion u talking to me? 23:36, 3 August 2006 (UTC)

Thanks - I forgot the taifa kingdoms! --GCarty 07:24, 4 August 2006 (UTC)

American propaganda film cats[edit]

I agree that the category needed to be split up, but may I suggest some modifications in the new arrangement?

First I think that the Right and Left cats should include domestic as well as foreign policy, as the two can become very intertwined, as late experience has shown, and the terms "anti-communist" and "anti-fascist" doesn't adequeatly cover the respective foreign outlooks. Would an anti-Vietnam war film, for instance, really belong under the anti-fascist cat, or a left wing cat for that matter?

This is what I propose

  • WWII films (a fairly distinct genre)
  • General Left and right wing films
  • Vietnam era films (both anti and pro, left and right. The two are not mutually exclusive.)
  • Drug and social hygiege films
  • anti-communist

What do you think?--Dudeman5685 20:02, 17 December 2006 (UTC)

Almost no Americans were outright pro-communist or pro-fascist, so I'd reserve the labels "anti-communist" and "anti-fascist" for relatively non-partisan films. As for Vietnam, either have a specific category, or create a new category for anti-war films (also including films opposing other wars, such as Why We Fight (2005 film)), while putting the pro-war films in the "anti-communist" category. GCarty 21:09, 17 December 2006 (UTC)

Terrorism in country categories[edit]

I saw you created the Terrorism in France category a while back. A new user is upset by the use of the word terrorism and is removing categories from pages at random.

Redirect of Anti-Christian[edit]

Information icon.svg

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Anti-Christian, by Graeme Bartlett (talk · contribs), another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Anti-Christian is a redirect to a non-existent page (CSD R1).

To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting Anti-Christian, please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page. If the article has already been deleted, see the advice and instructions at WP:WMD. Please note, this bot is only informing you of the nomination for speedy deletion, it did not nominate Anti-Christian itself.

However, I can't get it to work properly and I don't know enough about the template syntax to fix it. Could you please help? -- ChrisO 22:51, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

Rashidun and Abbasid Caliphates[edit]

PCF far-left? No![edit]

Please don't move the French Communist Party to far-left anymore. Firstly, it's not even far-left anymore for a variety of regions. Please don't touch the template based on your opinions. If you don't know about French politics, don't touch it. --Petrovic-Njegos (talk) 15:52, 26 January 2008 (UTC)

Sorry about that, but could you please explain why a communist party is not considered far-left? --GCarty (talk) 18:34, 26 January 2008 (UTC)
For ideological reasons, it's Eurocommunist. It's not trotskyst. And anyways, the French far-left refers to trots, anti-liberals etc. But mostly for technical reasons. It co-operates a lot with the PS or Greenies. Most of their MPs were elected without PS candidates opposing them, their lists in regional elections (if they run one) always rallies the Socialists if they're at 10%. --Petrovic-Njegos (talk) 21:25, 26 January 2008 (UTC)

Image Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading Image:Zoomandbored.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, 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, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

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.

The media file you uploaded as File:Whywefight30vs200.png appears to be missing information as to its authorship (and or source), or if you did provide such information, it is confusing for others trying to make use of the image.

It would be appreciated if you would consider updating the file description page, to make the authorship of the media clearer.

Although some images may not need author information in obvious cases, (such where an applicable source is provided),authorship information aids users of the image, and helps ensure that appropriate credit is given (a requirement of some licenses).

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Al-Faran requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A3 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an article with no content whatsoever, or whose contents consist only of external links, a "See also" section, book references, category tags, template tags, interwiki links, a rephrasing of the title, or an attempt to contact the subject of the article. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit 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. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Joyson Prabhu Holla at me! 00:22, 16 May 2012 (UTC)
