Translation help needed[edit]

Hey, I saw you mentioned at Wikipedia:Translators_available#Latin-to-English. Translation help needed for the articles Rus' people, Rus (name), Kievan Rus', Rus' Khaganate, and probably also Varangians and Annales Bertiniani.

Original Latin source: [1] (starting with "Venerunt etiam legati Graecorum a Theophilo imperatore directi, Theodosius videlicet, Calcedonensis metropolitanus episcopus, et Theophanius spatharius, ferentes cum donis imperatore dignis epistolam quos imperator quinto decimo Kalendas Iunii in Ingulenheim honorifice suscepit" on that page, and continuing AFAIK for two more pages).

The Latin source I need help on is the Annales Bertiniani, which is a collection of Frankish annals that was completed in 882 AD. The issue behind this is the historical first mention of the Rus' people, which was a Norse tribe, also known as the Varangians from Sweden that, starting in the 9th century from Novgorod and Kiev (Kievan Rus') and allegedly under the leadership of their chieftain Rurik (or rather RøRikR in Old Norse) conquered portions of the Baltics and today's northwestern Russia, a realm which was soon known as the Rus' Khaganate (with the result that lots of placenames, such as Novgorod, actually have an Old Norse etymology). Eventually, the Rus' Khaganate, even though the Norse ruling elite was but small and soon assimilated to the Balto-Slavic population, became the nucleus and namegiver for modern Russia.

The thing is, this so-called Normannic theory is still kinda controversial, as modern Russian scholars often regard it as a modern romantic nationalist myth originating with late-19th century Pan-Germanism. What the Russians are saying is that the original Rus were actually Slavs. Now, these 9th century Annales Bertiniani seem to be a rather authoritative, and, given their time of origination, pretty concise, source to refute these Russian scholars.

What I get of this Latin text is only the gist of it. Apparently, a delegation of Rus people were interrogated by Frankish Emperor Louis the Pious at Ingelheim am Rhein in 839 AD, where they said that:

  • the name of their tribe was Rus (spelled "Rhos" in this Latin text, maybe via Byzantine Greek translation? As far as I can tell, a letter from Byzantine Emperor Theophilos or Michael III is mentioned),
  • they originally came from Sweden
  • but had settled in what is northwestern Russia today (I find this information several times in modern sources, attributing it to the Annales Bertiniani, but *WHAT THE HECK* was their contemporary name for "northwestern Russia"?), and
  • that they had switched to calling their chieftains chacanus now.

Chacanus is Latin for Khagan, a title they had likely borrowed from contact with the Avars while conquering from the Baltic coast southward. It's why their realm in centuries to come was to be known as the Rus' Khaganate.

But what I need for good sourcing is an exact translation of portions relevant to the informations bulleted above. Original Latin text at [2] (starting with "Venerunt etiam legati Graecorum a Theophilo imperatore directi, Theodosius videlicet, Calcedonensis metropolitanus episcopus, et Theophanius spatharius, ferentes cum donis imperatore dignis epistolam quos imperator quinto decimo Kalendas Iunii in Ingulenheim honorifice suscepit" on that page, and continuing AFAIK for two more pages). --79.193.34.87 (talk) 02:49, 29 August 2011 (UTC)

Research into the user pages of Wikipedians: Invitation to participate[edit]

Greetings,

My name is John-Paul and I am a student with the University of Alberta specializing in Communications and Technology.

I would like to include your Wikipedia user page in a study I am doing about how people present themselves online. I am interested in whether people see themselves in different ways, online and offline. One of the things I am looking at is how contributors to Wikipedia present themselves to each other through their user pages. Would you consider letting me include your user page in my study?

With your consent, I will read and analyze your user page, and ask you five short questions about it that will take about ten to fifteen minutes to answer. I am looking at about twenty user pages belonging to twenty different people. I will be looking at all user pages together, looking for common threads in the way people introduce themselves to other Wikipedians.

I hope that my research will help answer questions about how people collaborate, work together, and share knowledge. If you are open to participating in this study, please reply to this message, on your User Talk page or on mine. I will provide you with a complete description of my research, which you can use to decide if you want to participate.

Thank-you,

John-Paul Mcvea

Thank-you for agreeing to participate in my study[edit]

Thank-you for agreeing to participate in my study, entitled “Online Self-presentation among Wikipedians.” I appreciate it.

If it is not too much to ask, here are five short questions about your user page. I would appreciate hearing your answers to these questions: they will help me to understand your motivations for creating a user page such as yours. Please be as brief or as thorough as you like.


5 QUESTIONS

1. Are you a member of social networks such Facebook or MySpace?

2. In addition to maintaining a user page in Wikipedia, have you also written or edited articles? If so, about how many times?

3. What are the key messages about yourself that you hope to convey with your user page?

4. Have your Wikipedia contributions ever received feedback, such as being edited by others or commented on? Have you received a message from another Wikipedia user? If so, do you think your user page positively or negatively affected what other people said and how they said it?

5. Do you see your “online self” as being different from your “offline self?” Can you elaborate?


Please indicate your answers to these questions on your talk page, or on mine. Please respond by October 1st so that I have time to properly read your responses. If you like, you can email your answers to me instead (jmcvea@ualberta.ca).

Thank you again : )

Proposed deletion of Car shipping[edit]

I have removed the prod tag you placed on Car shipping as it was discussed at AfD in 2008 and per policy is ineligible for prod. I did this only to comply with policy; it is not an endorsement for keeping the article.

Tetrabiblos, book II[edit]

Hi Smerdis

In case you have the time and interest, I have just finished developing content on book II of the Tetrabiblos. I think it would benefit the page to have another editor such as yourself look over that content. Maybe you will spot areas where the text can be reduced or points made more effeciently, and I want to make sure that the tone is appropriate, in explaining the content without sanctioning it. Obviously I thought of you because you created the page and I hope to develop it inline with your original motivation.

I did have content ready for books III and IV but lost my files so need to time to recreate it. These are both themed on personal horoscopes so I intend to offer only a brief summary of both books together in a final section dedicated to detailing the book contents. Maybe some time before I can get back to finish that (presuming, of course, someone else doesn't do it first).

CVonline[edit]

Two weeks ago you closed the AfD for this article and userfied the article. I did not see why at the time: there's a struck suggestion to userfy and none from the article creator, who's last comment was he has copied the pages. He wanted deletion postponed as it would take "a little while" to find an alternative host, but they now have that [3], as well as the original site [4]. The page here hasn't been touched since. Can you delete this now, or should I take it to MfD?--JohnBlackburnewordsdeeds 18:17, 28 October 2011 (UTC)

Hello Smerdis of Tlon: I appreciate your rescue tag on The Butler Arms Hotel and I appreciate all comments, even those not favourable. On reading the hotel register one cannot use the majority of names as their addresses are too broad. But there is delight in finding ones so precise as Scraftoft Hall which is equalled by finding double barrelled and treble barrelled Christian names. These show that Aristocracy think differently to the rest of us; for the exact member of the family is unmistakeable even before one makes assurance double sure by checking the date he lived with the entry in the register. The first entry shows that the guest, J B Hayens had expectations of the hotel and of the lake, so both were already notable. I began this enquiry in the belief that too much was made of the holidays of Charlie Chaplin, without any explanation of why he arrived in the first place. He wouldn't have come to the Butler Arms if it were not already famous, nor would those before him right back to 1884 - and beyond that to 1865 when the hotel was an inn. But the pity is that there was an elegant hotel in the village at that time which lasted until 1971 when another was built in its place. But there is no record of who stayed there, nor is there record from many more hotels throughout the world. That is the value of the Butler Arms register. It isn't that it had more famous people than elsewhere but that we have a record of who stayed there. All guests mentioned in my article are notable and all I can hope is that by staying there they have made the hotel notable also. But there is still the problem that the register may not be notable in so far as it hasn't been published. I think there is nothing more notable than that it exists and contains such notable names. If I can get into the hang of communicating via the internet maybe there is far more can be said in this regard.

In the meantime I am glad of the user name, Kemiah; for she was one of the daughters of Job. Kind regards. Kemiah — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kemiah (talkcontribs) 14:51, 8 November 2011 (UTC)

Contest Irdeto Deletion[edit]

Can you please remove the deletion tag you placed on the Irdeto page. This artcle is not the same as the one you had previously deleted as I have completely rewritten the article, which now includes third-party sources and the 'marketing' language you said it had before has been removed and is now strictly just facts. Thank you OttawaWiki (talk) 20:46, 14 November 2011 (UTC)

It says solutions because they offer both products and security solutions so this is accurate. As for the references I made sure not to include press releases. They are a subsidary of Naspers, but I definitely think they warrant a page of their own as they provide security for very well known companies such as Netflix and D-Link. Also, if you notice in the aquisitions they just bought BD+ technology from Rovi which will allow them to provide a soltution to protect all Blu-ray disks. There are a lot of articles on Wikipedia of companies much smallar and that have made much less of a footprint in technology; therefore, I definitely think this page is a worth while one for me to have created. If you have any editing suggestions then that would be great so we can make this page better OttawaWiki (talk) 21:59, 14 November 2011 (UTC).

If you read their website and any of the third-party sources used in this article they don't provide products they provide solutions to prevent piracy. A solution is not just a chemical it is also an action or process of solving a problem, which is what they do. They provide a solution using security software to solve other companies piracy problems. I also explained each solution briefy. I don't know if I should change it to just product because then this would be inaccurate information. I am not sure why you tagged the page again, but I would really like to solve this and improve this page. With you guidance as you seem to be a Wikipedia pro could you help me improve it rather than just tag it OttawaWiki (talk) 19:25, 15 November 2011 (UTC).

Can you please removed the neutrality banners you placed on the Irdeto page as I went in and took out solution and replaced it with product or service. As for "provdes" and "sell" the only time it says "provides" is when it is referring to the product providing something not Irdet; you cannot say a product itself is selling something. I think it should be okay now though. Thank you for your help/suggestions. OttawaWiki (talk) 20:55, 15 November 2011 (UTC).

No. It's still just a product list that's purely promotional, and doesn't really establish a reason to be in an encyclopedia. - Smerdis of Tlön - killing the human spirit since 2003! 16:19, 21 November 2011 (UTC)

Any other page on wikipedia that is a product explains their products on it. I don't understand how Irdeto's page is any different and I feel I have made this page very brief and straight to the point. Can you please help me improve it then instead of just saying you won't take the boxes down? OttawaWiki (talk) 17:15, 30 November 2011 (UTC)

Great, I am going to take them down for now and work on trying to come up with better ideas for the page. Do you think it would be better if I took out all the basic product explanations and just listed the products in a sentence? OttawaWiki (talk) 16:43, 2 December 2011 (UTC)

RfC: Wikipedia:Fringe theories/Arbitration cases[edit]

Hi, Smerdis - I have been involved in these discussions on this in a minor way [5] and [6] and would like to comment. I don't know the procedures, but can you see any reason, why I cannot add my comments to the discussion? Robert Currey talk 13:14, 3 December 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for your response. I would comply with any arbitration even if I was not part of the discussion. I have decided not to comment at this point, since your excellent outline and comments by other editors have covered the points I would have made. Also, I have not followed all the discussions on many different pages.
In covering the Signs of the Zodiac, it occurs to me that Julia Parker's book Compleat Astrologer with sales of over a million copies in 17 countries or Linda Goodman's Sun Signs (1968) and Linda Goodman's Love Signs (1978) with both titles reaching the New York Times Bestseller List, should qualify as notable (though not necessarily representative) sources. Yet, these titles may still be rejected for being primary sources - even though their descriptions are more or less in line with Babylonian and Hellenistic traditions.
In addition, I feel that there is also some contradiction by editors who rigidly enforce rules that make sense for an established science with a huge academic resources but yet reject the few experts in the field per se. This seems to be the equivalent of saying those who have studied chemistry could not be cited in an article on chemistry. Robert Currey talk 16:26, 4 December 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for trying to fix the markup on Invictus. If you come across any more cases like that, I suggest checking the page's edit history before trying to guess what the solution is – it often turns out (as in this case) that the real problem is that a vandal has arbitrarily removed a chunk of the article, and more needs to be restored than just adding opening or closing tags.

MSU Interview[edit]

Ihcoyc,

My name is Jonathan Obar user:Jaobar, I'm a professor in the College of Communication Arts and Sciences at Michigan State University and a Teaching Fellow with the Wikimedia Foundation's Education Program. This semester I've been running a little experiment at MSU, a class where we teach students about becoming Wikipedia administrators. Not a lot is known about your community, and our students (who are fascinated by wiki-culture by the way!) want to learn how you do what you do, and why you do it. A while back I proposed this idea (the class) to the community HERE, where it was met mainly with positive feedback. Anyhow, I'd like my students to speak with a few administrators to get a sense of admin experiences, training, motivations, likes, dislikes, etc. We were wondering if you'd be interested in speaking with one of our students.


So a few things about the interviews:

  • Interviews will last between 15 and 30 minutes.
  • Interviews can be conducted over skype (preferred), IRC or email. (You choose the form of communication based upon your comfort level, time, etc.)

Category:Cisco Systems acquisitions[edit]

Hello Ihcoyc, I've seen you around quite a bit on company related articles, so I thought I'd ask for your opinion. I have noticed that there are a large number of defunct non-notable companies in Category:Cisco Systems acquisitions. I have been debating the best approach for dealing with this. Ideally, they should all be merged (if needed) and redirected to List of acquisitions by Cisco Systems. There are 80 articles in the category and approximately ~70 of them don't have enough coverage to pass the general notability guidelines. What do think would be the best way to bring this up? I was thinking about starting a bulk AfD, in order to get further input on this. Thank you, Alpha_Quadrant (talk) 16:56, 14 February 2012 (UTC)

Ok then, I make up a list and create a bulk nomination. Best, Alpha_Quadrant (talk) 17:18, 14 February 2012 (UTC)

Clear Books[edit]

Hello! You participated in Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Clear Books, so you might want to participate in Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Clear Books (2nd nomination). — Dmitrij D. Czarkoff (talk) 20:13, 18 February 2012 (UTC)

I believe I have to explain my rationale behind creation of this article. As you can see from the logs, this article often gets recreated, and (though I asked for it in Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Clear Books (2nd nomination)) doesn't get salted. Therefor, as I see it, there is no question about whether this software/company will have its article. Keeping that in mind I created an article that would cover the topic in the manner that would be the least harmful for Wikipedia: with the software as the topic, no blogs in sources and each statement directly sourced from the reviews of software. That said, I fully agree with the rationale behind your vote; I just see the deletion impractical. — Dmitrij D. Czarkoff (talk) 10:53, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

VisualCron[edit]

Hello! I wanted to ask for you advise: I nominated VisualCron (the revision before nomination) for deletion on February 13, 2012‎. Then I actually found three sources I thought were enough and so I withdraw the nomination. As the article was 100% promotive in tone I started rewriting it and found out these sources are not as useful as I thought before: they were so promotional that I can't believe they were not paid. I actually squeezed everything I could from the sources and ended up with a very inadequate and outdated article that doesn't help to show the difference between VisualCron and Windows Task Scheduler (the software in the default installation of Windows). Actually, as I get it, the difference is huge and VisualCron could be properly reviewed in depth, and I found no such reviews in the wild. I would re-nominate the article, but I'm not sure it would be appropriate to nominate the same article twice in 8 days. What would you do? — Dmitrij D. Czarkoff (talk) 13:24, 20 February 2012 (UTC)

Solution[edit]

I've recently created a new template for tagging "solution" PR usage: {{solution-inline}}.

entry for PTC[edit]

Hi, Steve. In the past (November 2011), you've made comments on the talk page for PTC (and perhaps edits to the page itself). I work at PTC (FULL DISCLOSURE), and have noticed some out-of-date information. I placed some suggested/requested edits on the talk page for PTC, but will not make them on my own due to point of view and conflict of interest. I'm letting you know here on your talk page that some edits are suggested there - I thought you might want to see them, since you had (have?) an interest in the page, given your past edits.

Thanks! -Alan (abelniak)

Proposed deletion of Giant rat[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Giant rat has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Catch-all list of Rodents of Unusual Size. Very few of these actually seem to use the term "giant rat" straight up. No sourcing.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Business & Decision and Boursorama[edit]

Ithought it better to send these to AfD, because of the presence of the frWP article, and the major stock exchange listing. I will probably say to delete, but I think the community should decide.

Works for me. For your help in finding these, they all relate to Template:CAC Small, a template containing all of the businesses on the Paris Bourse that aren't in any of its major stock indexes. They're all publicly traded, or were at one time. Most of the redlinks on that template were there before I started looking at it. Some of the links on the template (Affine (company), Cegedim, Audika, Cegid Group, Delachaux) were a7'ed on my proposal, and deleted by others; these had nothing more than the assertion that a business by that name existed. The ones without sources or convincing claims to be encyclopedia subjects in the text, I PROD'ed. The ones I thought might be notable, I tagged for any defects I saw in style or sourcing; and finally, I put the template itself up for discussion as a collection of links to articles that mostly don't exist. - Smerdis of Tlön - killing the human spirit since 2003! 05:52, 14 April 2013 (UTC)

B2B essay[edit]

Hi! Thanks again for writing your WP:B2B essay. Lately, I've been quoting selected parts from it. I'm reluctant to link to the essay, since it makes use of the term "bull****", and I prefer to link to politer material. (Please note also that some of our editors are mere children.) I suppose I could fork the essay, but that would be impolite. I've looked at the guideline Wikipedia:Offensive material, but am unclear whether or not it demands that a change must be made. Still, I wonder if I could please have your permission to replace the term "bull****" with some other term, such as "drivel", in your essay? ("Hogwash" would be even better than "drivel", but it's an Americanism.) If you reply, it would be great if you could please move the entire conversation to my talk page first; if I reply to you, I can do the same. Cheers, —Unforgettableid (talk) 02:35, 21 January 2014 (UTC)

Sorry about taking a while to get back to you, but we've had this talk before and I would rather not do this. I do mean to keep that essay as a personal one; it's an advocacy piece,m full of my own experience and reflections, and too much of it is first person to think about moving it into mainspace. And bullshit has been expounded by philosophers and means exactly what I want to say there. Finally, Wikipedia is not censored. - Smerdis of Tlön - killing the human spirit since 2003! 04:17, 28 January 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Double-take[edit]

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.

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. This is a notice to inform you that a tag has been placed on Double-take 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, images, 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 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.
