Please take a quick look at the archived talk pages at Budapest, this may help to avoid unnecessary disputes, deletions etc. 'Little Paris' or 'Paris of the East' are common nicknames for Bucharest and if you look at the page history, you will realize others tend to confuse the two cities[1]. Nicknames are already mentioned in the infobox anyway.
Your contributions are welcome, the article really needs some attention and you cited sources. Lack of these is one of the main problems here. Squash Racket 09:19, 27 October 2007 (UTC)
OK, thanks for the info. I hope a consensus will be reached on the intro at Budapest. Gregorik 09:27, 27 October 2007 (UTC)

Budapest[edit]

Hi Gregorik! You've worked a lot, and the article starts to look good. I also think districts should have their own article, they are basically cities on their own right. Budapest will still be a very long article if you cover just the most important things. Squash Racket 04:15, 6 November 2007 (UTC)

If you want to work on part of the article calmly, you can create a subpage. For example User:Gregorik/Highlighted Districts. When you're ready, you just copypaste it into the article and delete the subpage. Squash Racket 11:09, 6 November 2007 (UTC)

Budapest[edit]

Kedves Gregorik! A Budapestről szóló article-be beraktam egy képet a Duna Towersröl. Amit te rögtön átmozgattál egy másik helyre a lapon. Megtudnád mondani hogy miért nem volt jó helyen? Bocsi, ha letámadásnak tűnik a kérdésem egyébként nem az, csak érdekel mért tetted arrébb. katonamside írj 2007. november 18., 21:56 (CEST)

Message to User:Nareek[edit]

Write on the talk page, not on editor's user page, it may be considered vandalism. I copied your message on his talk page. Be careful with that next time. Squash Racket (talk) 17:47, 23 November 2007 (UTC)

Are you referring to my deletion of the section expansion tags? I took those out because each section already contained a link to another article where the history was described at much greater length; it seemed to me that the main article provided an appropriate summary. If that's not what you're referring to, perhaps you have me mixed up with another article. In any case, you should assume good faith--I am, in face, trying to improve Wikipedia, just as you are. Nareek (talk) 12:13, 25 November 2007 (UTC)

Dobostorta kép[edit]

Szia!

Visszavontad a képcserémet a Hungary szócikkben [2]. Miért? Ami most ott van az szerintem minden, de nem dobostorta (sápadt és bedöntött karamellborítás, alatta mogyorószemek(!), szintén mogyoró az oldalán stb.) Az én képemen sem egy tökéletes dobostorta van, de legalább hasonlít az igazira. Üdv, Hu:Totya (talk!) 09:44, 10 December 2007 (UTC)

Hungary GA nomination[edit]

I guess there are too many red links in there. Some of the unimportant ones may be removed, but some backup articles should be written. Squash Racket (talk) 16:22, 11 December 2007 (UTC)

intro[edit]

come on, how can you say the intro is ok? the trird paragraph is nothing more than unrefferenced bragging. it has 10 examples of some -est that are completely irrelevant to the overall image of the country. it's like saying japan has the longest bridge in the world; while this is really impressive, and possible implies something about the technologic level of the country, there are other more 'addequate' isssues that could be put in the intro of the Japan article. I am trying to be helpful, but I do not have too much patience with such biased viewsNergaal (talk) 19:50, 14 December 2007 (UTC)

Did you read the talk page?[edit]

"This article failed good article nomination. This is how the article, as of December 13, 2007, compares against the six good article criteria:

   1. Well written?: NO WAY. List of the administrative divisions and of the public hollydays should not be on the main page of a country. Introduction is way too long. History might not be too long, but it is obviously overrepresented in the article (i.e. this article is not entitled History of Hungary).
   2. Factually accurate?: It is GROSSLY underreferenced. There a lot of places where there is one reference for an entire subsection. I guess means it fails to be factually acurate
   3. Broad in coverage?: There is nothing about education. Economy section barely gives some information (come on, it is a member of EU, it must have something relevant)
   4. Neutral point of view?:
   5. Article stability?
   6. Images?: the article almost abuses the use of images. The images should be relevant more than a little to the subsection.

Please check other articles on countries that are allready a GA.

When these issues are addressed, the article can be renominated. If you feel that this review is in error, feel free to take it have it reassessed. Thank you for your work so far.— Nergaal (talk) 22:16, 13 December 2007 (UTC)"

Read point 6 (the article almost abuses images) meaning it's flooded with non relevant useless images like a (not very good) drawing of the battle of muhi, or turkish soldiers in ottoman hungary that you lifted from the ottoman hungary page. Didn't you see how much better the article looked without those pictures? Hobartimus (talk) 11:32, 14 December 2007 (UTC)

Passport list[edit]

Hey Gregorik thank you very much, youve done a GREAT work in every article relating to hungary, ive really noticed you are always looking how to improve the articles and how to make them look better. Youre doing an excelent work. Now id like to ask you something. Since you are so involved in the hungarian things, wouldnt you like to do the visa free lists on the hungarian passport page?? maybe you have some source of the visa free lists, it would be so great if you could, so please answer me if your interested or if you have some source where to get the visa free stuff. Thank you--Philip200291 (talk) 16:54, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

Hey i got the source to do it....but I dont know how to do it, so ill leave you the sourve here, and maybe you can do it:http://mfa.gov.hu/kum/en/bal/consular_services/Entry_of_Foreiners_to_Hungary/visa_exemption/, thank you--Philip200291 (talk) 02:16, 21 December 2007 (UTC)

Mostly unreliable sources for Budapest[edit]

You remove Business Week/Mercer's Quality of Life ref and replace it with prleap.com? For GA/FA status every single ref will be questioned and believe me most references for this article should be dropped. It is misleading to present any city of two million as the most livable, but Budapest reached an acceptable ranking. Squash Racket (talk) 16:24, 30 December 2007 (UTC)

Feel free to move it from the lead if you find it reflects negatively, but an encyclopedia is not for advertisement. This ranking is based on 39 quality-of-life criteria, it is posted every year, it is a reliable source often cited. If you read some FACs, you'll see reliable sources are a key factor. Squash Racket (talk) 18:04, 30 December 2007 (UTC)

Reviewing Articles of which you have contributed / Budapest[edit]

I noted that you had upgraded the rating on an article which you had edited. Not that I have never done it, but I think we can agree it does put you at a bit of a conflict of interest. I'm going to take a look at the Budapest article as it's a shame that a top priority article like this would not be at FA-status. You deserve recognition for the amount of work you have invested in the article. Thanks for your contribution! Alan.ca (talk) 15:16, 5 January 2008 (UTC)

Edits to American exceptionalism.[edit]

Hi - I recently noticed your edits to American exceptionalism -- and would like to discuss further:

  • I'm not certain what was meant by "The term shifted in meaning to the (far) right during the 20th century, making it hard to reconcile with Tocqueville's original theory." You might want to define what American exceptionalism currently means if it has shifted in meaning from "qualitative differences" to something else entirely. I believe that there are three different uses of the term:
    • At least when I've encountered the term "American exceptionalism", I've seen it used in the "traditional" (de Tocqueville) sense - that the United States differs qualitatively from other nations - that the United States has played a unique role in world history - and that the United States has, at least on a historical level, diverged from the rest of the world in certain areas. This is what I have understood American exceptionalism to mean.
    • There is somewhat of an implicit undertone of nationalism within American exceptionalism - US citizens view the US with pride because they view its history as differing from the rest of the world - that they view the US as an exceptional nation. Is this what you're referring to?
    • Others refer to "American exceptionalism" when they state that certain Americans - specifically the George W. Bush Administration, certain elements of the US Republican Party, as well as various neoconservatives, such as John Yoo or John Bolton - view the United States as being an "exception" to international law, and, for example, incite torture of prisoners, or fail to sign treaties. This is how the term has been used as of late in popular media, especially following a conference at Stanford in 2003. For example, Roger Cohen, a columnist at the New York Times, as well as Nicholas Kristof, at the same paper, have used the term in such a manner.
      • If you're referring to this phenomenon - of neoconservatives believing the US to be an exception or somehow superior to international law - I would wholeheartedly agree with the sentiment that this view of the US is properly described as a "reactionary myth". If this is the case - you might want to qualify your statement by clearly identifying which form of exceptionalism you're calling a reactionary myth - especially seeing as this is a new use of a very old term that goes against what some might view as the history of its use.
  • I believe that perhaps it may be better to use a different tone in writing about this subject. Words like "Many identify it as a reactionary myth"...is perhaps a bit strong to be saying in an encyclopedia, except in quoting a critic. It might be better to say something like "So and So states that 'American exceptionalism is a reactionary myth'", or that "Critics, such as So and So, allege that American exceptionalism is a 'reactionary myth'" (with a reference to which critic called it a "reactionary myth").
  • I'm also assuming good faith - that there were no implications in your comment that "Article needs huge revision by objective reviewers (that means non-conservatives w/o vested interest)" that somehow I'm a "conservative" or a "right winger". I consider myself to be a "left winger", and a subscriber to the political philosophy of modern American liberalism, which is left-of-center. I believe that my edits were objective, based on what I understand about American exceptionalism - at least the traditional use of the term.
    • I would also say that my tone in some of the comments that I made might seem inappropriate or offensive, when I stated that "This is an encyclopedia, not a discussion board." I was just surprised at the number of edits that were made, and what I viewed as the tone of those edits - and shouldn't have taken it personally. I don't own the article, your view is as valid as mine. If you took offense, then I apologize.
  • Thanks for listening.Katana0182 (talk) 02:13, 15 January 2009 (UTC)
    • I think that I'm going to take a break from that article for a few months. Upon reflection, it's clear that I haven't been as objective as I should have been in some of my writing - there are other areas of the project that I'll work on for the time being. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.Katana0182 (talk) 03:20, 16 January 2009 (UTC)

Requests for editor assistance: American exceptionalism.[edit]

I'm notifying you as a courtesy that I have requested editor assistance to review the article American exceptionalism, the verifiability of the sources you have cited, and the following diff.

I'm notifying you as a courtesy that I am renewing my request for editor assistance - that I am not going away, and I believe the article is in major need of revision due, in part, to your editing practices. You stated that you are not willing to discuss the matter with an IP user, but I'm sure that others are willing to discuss your conduct with me. If necessary, I intend to pursue the dispute resolution process.71.127.15.202 (talk) 08:47, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

Hi Gregorik. I checked your sources, and found that some, possibly all of them are writers' personal blogs, which are not acceptable on Wikipedia. However, if some of them were not, or you can find mainstream sources, please bring them to our attention at Talk:Mark_Steyn. Viewfinder (talk) 07:31, 10 February 2009 (UTC)

MTV Generation: Wikipedia has no fixed definition - it happens![edit]

I've written (rather a long) comment on the MTV Generation article in response to Peregrine981's request for comments on the discussion page. You don't have to read it, but it struck me that there is also little agreement on what constitutes a pair of shorts (e.g compared to trousers, kneebreeches, knickerbockers etc) , but little controversy in having a decent page about them. If you have time, could you please add any further comments you might have on the MTV Gen issue to the page? I found your previous comment quite helpful.

Bare URLs, repeated URLs, weak sources[edit]

Please learn to format bare URLs appropriately for American exceptionalism. Your bare URLs added to the article do not give proper timing information (was it said last week or last decade?) and they make extra work for others. See WP:CITEHOW for pointers, especially Wikipedia:Referencing for beginners with citation templates.

Also, a reference can be used twice if it is named: see WP:NAMEDREFS. You do not have to repeat it in full.

I noticed that you found two URLs to back up Nicolai Ouroussoff saying America was "an empire enthralled with its own power and unaware that it is fading." Your two URLs were very poor ones, with one having half the quote and the other a blog. It was fairly easy for me to find the right URL with the full quote in its original source. Please do not resort to multiple weak references when one good one suffices. Quantity is not the answer. Every time you put up two or three references in a row I will trim them back to just one, if appropriate, especially for simple things like direct quotes. Binksternet (talk) 17:30, 7 March 2010 (UTC)

AfD nomination of MTV Generation[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

An editor has nominated one or more articles which you have created or worked on, for deletion. The nominated article is MTV Generation. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also Wikipedia:Notability and "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion(s) by adding your comments to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/MTV Generation (3rd nomination). Please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate.

Your request for rollback[edit]

Wikipedia Rollback.svg

Hi Gregorik. After reviewing your request for rollback, I have enabled rollback on your account. Keep in mind these things when going to use rollback:

  • Getting rollback is no more momentous than installing Twinkle.
  • Rollback should be used to revert clear cases of vandalism only, and not good faith edits.
  • Rollback should never be used to edit war.
  • If abused, rollback rights can be revoked.
  • Use common sense.

If you no longer want rollback, contact me and I'll remove it. Also, for some more information on how to use rollback, see Wikipedia:New admin school/Rollback (even though you're not an admin). I'm sure you'll do great with rollback, but feel free to leave me a message on my talk page if you run into troubles or have any questions about appropriate/inappropriate use of rollback.

Edit warring[edit]

New Years Message for WikiProject United States[edit]

With the first of what I hope will be monthly newsletters I again want to welcome you to the project and hope that as we all work together through the year we can expand the project, create missing articles and generally improve the pedia thought mutual cooperation and support. Now that we have a project and a solid pool of willing members I wanted to strike while the iron is hot and solicite help in doing a few things that I believe is a good next step in solidifiing the project. I have outlined a few suggestions where you can help with on the projects talk page.

Awww. Certainly you've been round long enough to recognize a BJAODN. No biggie. I was just hopin it would be around long enough for somebody to get a Face-smile.svg from it. I agree it wasn't helpful to the conversation, but it was funny. Probably best that it was reverted. Oh well. 64.40.60.60 (talk) 12:41, 22 March 2011 (UTC)

Well, if you look at my userpage, you can tell that I do have a sense of humor; but the Libyan Civil War article is a biggie, and is kind of immune to jokes. Agree? ᴳᴿᴲᴳᴼᴿᴵᴷᶤᶯᵈᶸᶩᶢᵉ 15:07, 22 March 2011 (UTC)

Would you like to help improve Wikipedia's coverage of topics related to the National Archives and its incredible collection?

There are all sorts of tasks available for any type of editor, whether you're a writer, organizer, gnome, coder, or image guru. The National Archives is making its resources available to Wikipedia, so help us forge this important relationship! Please sign up and introduce yourself. Dominic·t 15:22, 22 June 2011 (UTC)

Popular culture revert[edit]

Did you misclick somewhere with this edit? Your edit summary was "messed-up lede back to stable", but you actually reverted the entire article to your last edit of it in October 2010, changing a great deal more than just the lede. I've reverted the edit. --McGeddon (talk) 20:06, 23 June 2011 (UTC)

Edit warring on Halloween[edit]

Your recent edits seem to have the appearance of edit warring. Users are expected to collaborate and discuss with others and avoid editing disruptively.

Please be particularly aware, the three-revert rule states that:

  1. Making more than three reversions on a single page within a 24-hour period is almost always grounds for an immediate block.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss the changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. OhNoitsJamie Talk 21:56, 31 October 2011 (UTC)

Hungary[edit]

Hello!

There is a little "user war" over the Hungary wiki article.

Pursuing New European Regional Division[edit]

Hey, I assume that you like the subdivision of Europe: http://141.74.33.52/stagn/JordanEuropaRegional/tabid/71/Default.aspx as comparedd with many old ones, relating to the idea of European semi-orientalism. The thing with that Statistical division is that it is nott based on proper research but this: http://unstats.un.org/unsd/methods/m49/m49.htm. Would you like to help me in collecting sources, and users, supporting clearer division of Europe, which actually gains popularity very fast?

Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited MTV Generation, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Informal (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Invitation[edit]

Hello!

Since your are listed in the participants of the WikiProject Hungary, it looks like you might be interested in articles related to Hungary and the Hungarians. Currently, the WikiProject Hungary is quite down with only a very limited active users, but I'd like to add some new impulse to it. So, I would like to invite you to take a look at this proposal, share your opinion and join a task force if you think you might be interested in it. If there are five or more applicants for a task force, it can be set up and by a cooperation of dedicated users we can further develop the task force related articles – at least give a boost to this small part of the project –, the task force itself and by so probably the whole WikiProject Hungary as well. If you have questions, ideas or thoughts you can add them on the talkpage of the proposal, here (I watchlsit your talkpage) or you can contact me directly on my talk page. Your words are very welcomed!

Thank you! Regards,

Sziget Festival reversion[edit]

Hi Gregorik, could you explain why you reverted changes to the introduction of the Sziget Festival article? You've reintroduced grammatical errors, slightly odd number formatting, and (in my opinion) muddied the attendance figures. It's the second time you've done that, and it's hard to address your concerns if you don't provide any. shellac (talk) 09:48, 18 June 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Miskolc International Film Festival[edit]

A tag has been placed on Miskolc International Film Festival 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 an organization or company, 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.

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. Hello71 (talk) 03:18, 11 August 2012 (UTC)

The user Arcillaroja[edit]

Dear Wikipedian,

I am Marina. I am writing to you in order to clarify my fears. One of the users have been reverting my edits on Western Europe, as well as other European-related issues. I noticed, that his or her page is full of talk page entries related just to that. Would you mind to stay in touch with me? I read about vandalism on Wikipedia and I fear this is one of these cases... I hope, of course that I am wrong but... the evidence seems to suggest otherwise. By evidence I mean Arcilla's talk page as well as entry, and the fact that rather than move a critical comment from user page to a talk page, it was simply reverted. --Martina Moreau (talk) 22:29, 22 January 2013 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Mobygames killed by Gamefly.jpg[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:Mobygames killed by Gamefly.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F9 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image appears to be a blatant copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted images or text borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

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.

Schizoid Personality Disorder[edit]

In the lead there is the passage:

«Some psychologists argue that the definition of SPD is flawed due to cultural bias: "One reason schizoid people are pathologized is because they are comparatively rare. People in majorities tend to assume that their own psychology is normative and to equate difference with inferiority". Therefore "[t]he so-called schizoid personality disorder is one of the more blatant examples of the APA’s pathologizing of normal human differences."[3][4][5]»

In the "History" section there is another passage saying:

«Psychologist Nancy McWilliams argues that the definition of SPD is flawed due to cultural bias: "One reason schizoid people are pathologized is because they are comparatively rare. People in majorities tend to assume that their own psychology is normative and to equate difference with inferiority."[12] Commentators have responded McWilliams is asking for an impossibility (norms as void as itself normative) and the more philosophically minded psychologists have pointed out, humans functioning well in the absence of norms realistically cannot exist and her argument represents a form of fallacious nihilism. In other words, the counter-argument is human beings have something like a teleological essence, and at least some underpinning of culturally transmitted ethics harmonious with the human telos (in Aristotelian terms), being a necessity inescapable for human beings striving after living well or Maslovian "flourishing", rejecting the predicted social anomie of the unspoken relativistic or nihilistic philosophical assumptions arguably underlying the views of McWilliams.[citation needed]»

I think that does not make much sense to have the same passage two times (and the second passage has the advantage if identifying the author of the quote).--MiguelMadeira (talk) 02:18, 6 October 2013 (UTC)
