I think you are missing the point, no one is saying the 'urdu language' is mongolian or Altaic, instead the word urdu or historically spelled 'ordu' is taken from the turkish/altaic language and means army as the urdu language was historically related to the army camps of south asia. Khokhar (talk) 03:30, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

Well, it's a Turkic word, yes. Altaic is already controversial as most linguistis dispute the existence of such a language group. Whether it was first spelled 'ordu' or 'urdu' is rather insignificant and hardly relevant to the introduction, as it wasn't spelled in the Latin alphabet at all at the time.Jeppiz (talk) 03:33, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

You seem to be a lot more knowledgable than me regarding this matter so I'll leave it to you to catergorise the origin of the word 'ordu', it does seem relevant as urdu was a synthesis of many languages including Turkish by the the Mughals; who were themselves Turk. Khokhar (talk) 03:39, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

Hi again. Don't get me wrong, I don't dispute that. It's the Altaic part I have a problem with. If ever such a language existed, and most linguists doubt it, it was spoken around 5000-6000 years ago.Jeppiz (talk) 03:42, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

I have made the necessary corrections. Khokhar (talk) 03:52, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

Basque Wikipedia version of the village of Corca Dhuibhne Gaeltacht[edit]

Kaixo! Zer moduz?
Dia dhuit! Conas atá tú?
Hej! hur mår du?
I know that the inhabitants of those irish towns named by the Irish in their names, I lived in Kerry, Clare, Galway Counties about 6 months and I was at several towns of them, I have as a first language Basque language, I also used the names of the Basque localities in Basque language version (but some of them have two official versions, normally the big cities: basque/spanish, french or gascon), I can understand your linguistic point of view . But the problem is this: I do not know the current language policy of the Government of the Republic of Ireland on the name of the people of the Gaeltacht area, if the official name is the only bilingual version or only the Irish version, as for example in the town of An Daingean has arisen in this regard. If you have any exact information about this topic please send me because I've read so far is quite vague.

If it´s like me you say, you can be sure that I´ll change the titles of articles in its Irish version.

Goraintziak Euskal Herritik Suediara!
Greetings from the Basque Country to Sweden.

--Euskalduna tell me here 20:00, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
O.K. I just see the website of the Údarás na Gaeltachta and I decided that as of now to create more articles on towns in the Gaeltacht area uses the official names given in this website. Of course, the changes that You made in the articles that I created will be fully respected. I hope to create more articles on the Basque language locations starting from Cork and Waterford county in the south and ending in Donegal county in the north.
Agur! Hej då! Slán agat!

Hi Jeppiz, no offence, but the section you removed was perfetly referenced and NPOV. It did not accuse Aftonbladet of being antisemitic, it just covered the allgations of others, something there's no reason for the article to ignore. It's very much an issue. While criticism of Israel is not antisemitic, by singlehandedly removing it you're simply ignoring the fact that it can be. In any case, would have been nice to talk about it beforehand. Poliocretes (talk) 22:47, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

It would have been even better to talk before inserting a paragraph that can be seen as highly offensive. And it did not "cover the allegations of others", it covered an article that said that Aftonbladet is not antisemitic.Jeppiz (talk) 22:49, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
Take a look in the history section, Jeppiz. That paragraph was written by someone who does actualy seem to speak Swedish (it wasn't me btw, though you seem to think so). Anyway, the point is that several people, who from the look of it come from very different backgrounds, have all contributed, and simply blanking out the section without discussing it first was uncalled for. Poliocretes (talk) 23:04, 24 August 2009 (UTC)


Please refrain from large removals of discussion that help to build our encyclopedia as the best possible encyclopedia, in this case seeking the assistance of editors knowledgeable in the Hindi language and Devanagari script to add such script to articles that need it. Thank you for this consideration. Badagnani (talk) 00:37, 29 August 2009 (UTC)

I've answered on your talk page, but here goes in short: The purpose of talk pages is to discuss how to improve the page to which the talk page belong. Requests for translations from Hindi belong at the talk page of articles to which they refer, not on the talk page of Hindi. Talk pages of every language article would turn into translation services if others followed your lead.Jeppiz (talk) 04:33, 29 August 2009 (UTC)

Al Ahmamr[edit]

I was about to self revert, because I really didn't want to get into this discussion. I showed why it was not RS, and you didn't even provide a reason, outside of "it has been discussed before". It was, but I provided further evidence. Discuss it. Find a reason why a paper that promotes the blood libel should be RS. When everybody agrees that it is okay to use a paper that promotes the blood libel as RS, feel free to revert. Until then, please leave it alone.Sposer (talk) 16:35, 26 September 2009 (UTC)

No offense, but you seem to have misunderstood Wikipedia's rules. What you're saying with your "When everybody agrees that it is okay to use a paper that promotes the blood libel as RS, feel free to revert. Until then, please leave it alone" is that it is you who decide what is RS or not unless everybody else agrees otherwise. I suggest you read up on Wikipedia's rules before making similar claims.Jeppiz (talk) 18:10, 26 September 2009 (UTC)

My apologies[edit]

Remember me from Corsican language? I was just reading some stuff from Ethnologue and you're right, sometimes they're so far off the mark that one can't even give them points for cleverness. I apologise for reverting you. Icon confused.gif Ultimate Destiny (talk) 07:01, 12 October 2009 (UTC)

Edit war[edit]

Hello. You appear to be involved in an edit war on Scandinavia. While the three-revert rule is hard and fast, please be aware that you can be blocked for edit warring without making 3 reverts to an article in 24 hours. You are not entitled to 3 reverts and are expected to cooperatively engage other editors on talk pages rather than reverting their edits. Note that posting your thoughts on the talk page alone is not a license to continue reverting. You must reach consensus. Continued edit warring may cause you to be blocked. Toddst1 (talk) 20:48, 18 June 2009 (UTC) Toddst1 (talk) 13:04, 26 October 2009 (UTC)


Please be aware that our policies on biographical articles on living persons require a high standard for sources, especially for any controversial or negative information. Many of your recent edits at Mallika Sherawat are inconsistent with this policy and your edit-warring to include controversial information without reliable sourcing is unacceptable. I am assuming that you were unaware of these policies, but please be more careful in future since violating WP:BLP and/or edit-warring may lead to your account being blocked.

"Greater Persia" map on World language[edit]

I think the idea of the "Persian" map was "at greatest extent of the language's influence", not "current nation's political borders", sort of the way the Turkic map parallels the later heyday of Genghis Khan's greatest conquests. But if you're going to leave the map down, could you at least put the "No Map" verbiage up, as with other boxes having no maps? Thanks. Sizzle Flambé (/) 07:47, 20 November 2009 (UTC)

Never mind, I found the previous (and better) map and put that in its place. Thanks. Sizzle Flambé (/) 23:44, 21 November 2009 (UTC)
Excellent! I'm sorry for not answering before. I found a German map earlier today that also was better, but let's stick with this one!Jeppiz (talk) 23:50, 21 November 2009 (UTC)

"France vs Ireland"[edit]

thanks! getting used to this whole process.kevinharte —Preceding undated comment added 22:06, 21 November 2009 (UTC).

I don't want to start an edit war, but I am going to remove the POV tag for a second time (I personally have only done it the once. If you are going to undo this, please could you first kindly point out how specifically the article is "biased" on the article's talk page, so that we can work towards addressing this, and/or consensus can be achieved on whether this amounts to bias.
The amount of coverage given to the reaction is clearly ridiculous (hence the "undue" tag), but it's not bias to reflect the fact that there is nowhere near a 50-50 split in opinion on the matter. WFCforLife (talk) 18:22, 23 November 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for your comment. It goes without saying that tags should always be backed up, and I did back it up the first time I put it there, although not this second time as I feel the same arguments apply. I'm in a bit of a hurry now, but I'll come back to it. In the meantime I won't put the tag back before having had the time to outline in more detail why the article does not satisfy WP:NPOV.Jeppiz (talk) 18:54, 23 November 2009 (UTC)

I don't understand what you mean by references in the text. MoodFreak (talk) 19:00, 27 November 2009 (UTC) When I look at the code under the page for those reference, it is very complicated. Is there an easier way to add the references? ~!MoodFreak (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 00:36, 28 November 2009 (UTC).

mind your own business[edit]

It's not for you to say what I can or should not do.get a life.--Kevinharte (talk) 06:32, 28 November 2009 (UTC)

You vandalised another user's personal page and I restored it and commented on how it's not for you (nor anyone else) to start undoing editor's edits to their own talk pages as long as the edits are in line with Wikipedia policies. I don't know why you try to start confrontations with all people. Nobody gains from that.Jeppiz (talk) 07:19, 28 November 2009 (UTC)

All people? That not a bit of an exageration? Jeppiz,I don't want any contact with you,don't write on my page.--Kevinharte (talk) 17:17, 28 November 2009 (UTC)

I don't write on your page to seek contact, I've merely pointed out politely when you violate Wikipedia policies. Many others would have reported you or blocked you long ago.Jeppiz (talk) 17:24, 28 November 2009 (UTC)

A Brief Word of Thanks[edit]

I very much appreciate your efforts on the Jonathan Cook AfD. Quite frankly, I find such debates to be tedious and exhausting. So I thank you.
--NBahn (talk) 01:14, 29 November 2009 (UTC)


In you suggested to me to report DIREKTOR's and Alasdair's removal as vandalism. Can you please tell me where i can report them? Thanks for your help --AndreaFox2 (talk) 22:13, 3 December 2009 (UTC)

Restating banned user's language[edit]

I would ask you to delete (and not just cross out) your restatement of the banned user's language. As the Arbitrator's decision makes clear, that is an unacceptable circumvention of the ban. Many thanks, my friend.--Epeefleche (talk) 02:42, 4 December 2009 (UTC)

Hi and thanks for your comment! I'll gladly do that, but I'm not 100% of which diff you mean. Is it the one where I summarized the points made by a topic-ban user on the AfD on Cook? Just tell me whether that's it and I'll remove it right away. Have a nice evening!Jeppiz (talk) 02:55, 4 December 2009 (UTC)

Yes, that was it, and thanks for your openness to considering my request. But perhaps its a moot point now, as (IMHO in violation of bans) the topic banned editors and Slim have inserted the material. On another point, I hadn't thought we had reached consensus to delete the "according to his website" clarifications, but noticed that you've deleted it/them. Have I missed something? Many thanks, and kudos for being one of the few to have retained balance and good humor throughout this somewhat testy AfD.--Epeefleche (talk) 19:11, 4 December 2009 (UTC)

I've removed it now. I've more or less left the AfD since a few days. In my experience, many AfDs start out well enough with people making reasonable arguments for deleting and for keeping, but after a few days both sides get more extreme and less polite. As this is a topic on which I don't have any personal feelings, and as I've made the factual arguments I wanted to make, I've left it behind me. It was a pleasure reading your comments; even in the cases where we did not agree, you always made your point in a well-articulated and polite way. As for the "according to his website", you're very welcome to change it as you see fit. For me, it was only a question about smooth reading of the article, but if there are other motives for keeping it, I don't have anything against including it again. Cheers and keep up the good workJeppiz (talk) 19:52, 4 December 2009 (UTC)
I hope I have the good fortune to work with you again. It's been a pleasure, as I've felt that you were one of the few always willing to listen to others' views, and reconsider yours if you felt appropriate. This project needs more of that. Best.--Epeefleche (talk) 21:13, 4 December 2009 (UTC)

Considera inoltre che DIREKTOR ha ricevuto 3 blocchi per guerre editoriali e fu ristretto ossia limitato in una serie di articoli nei quali insiste con il suo POV: leggi qui Wikipedia:Requests for arbitration/Dalmatia#DIREKTOR restricted dunque se lo bloccano ancora una volta è prossimo alla messa al bando. Questi slavi negano la pulizia etnica contro i cittadini italiani ordinata dal dittatore Broz e di conseguenza vogliono fare qui pulizia istigando gli amministratori contro utenze italiane e non che si oppongono alla loro agenda politica, che è pure sanzionabile con messa al bando. Per avere un'idea guarda qui e successivi interventi, poi qui con successivi interventi; ancora leggi qui con l'ennesima guerra editoriale prima e dopo questa modifica; posso continuare con altri articoli nei quali DIREKTOR nega la pulizia etnica fatta dai croati nella guerra interslava dopo il 1991 e attacca utenze serbe: insomma è inaccettabile questo schifo!

AfD nomination of Claudia Lynx[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 Claudia Lynx. 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/Claudia Lynx (2nd 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.

Please note: This is an automatic notification by a bot. I have nothing to do with this article or the deletion nomination, and can't do anything about it. --Erwin85Bot (talk) 01:07, 24 April 2010 (UTC)

Swiss populations[edit]

Hej. You asked this question on a few different talk pages, so I will reply here to keep it in one place. The infoboxes use a template called {{Swiss populations}}, which allows an editor to add the ISO code for the canton and SFOS number for the municipality, and it will draw population data from Category:Template:Swiss populations data. I agree with you, though; it does seem rather confusing. It might be better just to replace them with a plain figure and a reference. Best regards, Hayden120 (talk) 15:47, 27 May 2010 (UTC)

The infoboxes were set to use the Template to allow the populations to be easily updated every year when the new statistics come out. The template documentation links to the database that contains all the population data, which is where it can be edited. I'm interested in your other 2 comments
- This population figure is usually unsourced (the source provided does not support the claim)
- A different population figure is often found in the main body of the article.
On which articles is the population unsourced? Every one should have a source. So far I've only checked the Lugano figure, and that one is supported by the excel table on the Swiss Federal Statistical Office. So, if you've found one with incorrect sourcing, can you let me know. As for the figures being different in the article and the infobox, I'm in the process of adding the template to every municipality article. If you see one with old information in the please feel free to add the populations template. I've adjusted the lede on both the Bern and Lugano articles. Tobyc75 (talk) 16:10, 27 May 2010 (UTC)
I feel rather stupid now :-) I followed the link and somehow missed the excel-tables at the bottom... Do you think it might be an idea to link straight to the excel table rather than the current page, in case others are as blind as I was? Jeppiz (talk) 16:15, 27 May 2010 (UTC)

Ujfalusi page[edit]

I'm not vandalising the page, why do you think this is so important? And you can add various sources for any information, it doesn't matter. He has played hundreds of games in his career and has done plenty more significant things than giving Messi a swollen ankle. Also you don't own this article. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:40, 20 September 2010 (UTC)

Removing sourced content can be vandalism, and you have also vandalised the page in other ways, such as adding nonsense as in this edit [1]. Saying that he has played hundreds of game is irrelevant, he has played one game in which he made headlines around all of Europe. However, my discussion page is not the place to discuss this, that discussion is already found under the talk page of Ujfalusi. If you want to contribute, then stop vandalizing and start discussing there.Jeppiz (talk) 19:48, 20 September 2010 (UTC)


Hi there JEPPIZ, VASCO from Portugal here,

About the stuff which has been occurring in this player's page, i'll say the following about the situations which concern me:

You advised users to check the talkpage of the article before engaging in significant changes. I did so, with the same result - immediate reversions of my edits. Why? OK, the POV about his physical approach (which is correct, 100% true!), is deemed unencyclopedical, i'll stop adding it. But how 'bout the rest?

1 - After having the idea of writing competition names in English, someone told me names should be (per forum discussion(s)) in its original form. In Ujfalusi's case, La Liga, i had it in intro, you reverted it.

2 - In the situation with Messi (late lines of CLUB CAREER), i inserted several wikilinks and composed language, you reverted EVERYTHING (?!). Why did i remove some references? You can ask anyone, it was not vandalism, why insert refs in Swedish and French when there are already sources in English? This is EN.WIKI i believe, and the three i left (two ENG, one SPA because situation pertained to Spanish football) are more than enough to "cover" the incident.

3 - I removed the overlinking of the link EJECTION (SPORTS), which is found in "International career", and that became doubled after the Messi paragraph insertion, you...reverted it. I inserted a translation title for foreign refs, another good addition, you reverted it. Can i ask why?

All in all, sorry for any incovenience, keep up the good work - --Vasco Amaral (talk) 21:34, 22 September 2010 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for your message. The fault here is mine. It was late, and I obviously did a mistake - I only meant to remove the part about Ujfalusi's "physical strength and stamina", not the many good changes you have. It seems that I edited the wrong version. Sorry about that, I'll change it back if it hasn't been done already!Jeppiz (talk) 07:18, 23 September 2010 (UTC)
  • Thanks for you reply, regards - --Vasco Amaral (talk) 14:04, 23 September 2010 (UTC)

Trolling on Mallika Sherawat[edit]

This is one editor who is hell bent on sanitising the page and removing any news that he percives as negative.

Sam Warburton[edit]

Are you saying that the sending off did not cause controversy? "Controversy is a state of prolonged public dispute or debate, usually concerning a matter of opinion." Is the rugby world not divided in its opinion on the matter? I did neither say it was a correct nor an incorrect decision, merely that it sparked controversy. I fail to see why it warranted amendment. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Swperb (talkcontribs) 19:57, 19 October 2011 (UTC)

I think you need an Undue tag, not a POV tag. The undue tags are placed in the section and that section is already tagged. Also, tagging now will just add heat and we will all be old and gray arguing about it for ever. In general, dramatic acts during a discussion only generate more heat and will just take up life. I suggest you just tag he section with Undue rather than the whole article. Thanks. History2007 (talk) 22:50, 15 February 2013 (UTC)

I was deliberately not looking at all the events of the past ANI threads, but I happened to notice this this change of public signature and then saw this previous revert, then this one and they seem pretty close - geographically. I am not sure if that means that we all may have some type of previous history together that some of us may have been unaware of. But there was some type of other IP edit from Oregon in the middle of those ANI discussions in the past 5-6 days and I can not remember where it was. Do you remember it? Thanks.

Thanks! You're of course completely right, and I even knew that. Wrote it in a hurry, stupid mistake on my part.Jeppiz (talk) 13:09, 25 February 2013 (UTC)[edit]

The IP editor whom you've appeared to have dealings with, appears to be engaging in disruptive editing at the article Vang Pao. I see that you had previously left a lvl 4 warning on his page on the 20th of February. I reverted the editors deletion of content, what I thought at the time was a good faith edit that changed the context of the content, which the editor has since reverted. I am curious as to how we should move forward regarding this IP editor.--RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 20:49, 26 February 2013 (UTC)

Re: Quran[edit]

I have replied to your comment on the article's talk page. I trust that if you read the reasoning (not having to agree with all of it - the political bias conclusion is a bit iffy for me), you will agree that the deletion of the paragraph was obviously justified.

Meanwhile, please do not assume such malice from an editor. It was extremely insulting and hurtful. SamuelRiv (talk) 03:14, 27 February 2013 (UTC)

Resurrection of Jesus[edit]

There is no good way of handling civil but unhelpful commentary at Talk:Resurrection of Jesus—that's one of Wikipedia's weaknesses. Every explanation is an invitation for more unhelpful comments in reply. There are two ways to proceed, and I outlined my suggestion (say nothing and let others rant for a few days). The alternative is to start reverting repetitive and non-actionable comments, but that creates a huge distraction because when it eventually reaches ANI, misguided passers-by will say "you can't do that". I don't think there is enough to go to ANI now, but in view of the previous block perhaps there is (although I think it would be more effective to go to ANI after ignoring them for at least three days and seeing whether anything useful comes from them in that time). Currently, their repetition is plausibly defended on the basis that all they are doing is replying. Johnuniq (talk) 09:52, 10 March 2013 (UTC)


Yeah, as you know i was blocked because i did something against the rules, and i am very sorry, can you do me a favor? please take a look at all these sources and tell me if they are good enough to be used, i have found some extra sources too, here are all the sources for the picture: and and and and and and

Great, so i can put the sources that are good on with the picture without having any trouble right? i want to be full sure so i don't do anything wrong again. --HistoryofIran (talk) 13:22, 13 March 2013 (UTC)

I my understanding, yes. However, if someone reverts you, then use the talk page of the article to discuss the matter. People are never blocked for making one "bad" edit, but everyone can be blocked for reverting even if the edit is "good". It's not the quality of an edit that can lead to a block, but repetitive edit-warring. Best of luck!Jeppiz (talk) 13:56, 13 March 2013 (UTC)
Just FYI, see follow-up discussion on History's talkpage. The one source you identified as reliable isn't actually supporting the claim he wants to insert. Fut.Perf. 14:01, 13 March 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for your comment. I didn't comment on the claims, just on the quality of sources. That's why I took care to stress that any edit needed to be based on what source said.Jeppiz (talk) 14:15, 13 March 2013 (UTC)

Article Feedback deployment[edit]

Hey Jeppiz; I'm dropping you this note because you've used the article feedback tool in the last month or so. On Thursday and Friday the tool will be down for a major deployment; it should be up by Saturday, failing anything going wrong, and by Monday if something does :). Thanks, Okeyes (WMF) (talk) 22:08, 13 March 2013 (UTC)


I agree that the language I used is in general counterproductive. However, Noclador started it by reverting all my commits (despite not knowing what he's talking about) and calling them "major BS". [[3]] Is this a good example of acceptable language? Doesn't seem too different to what I wrote.

Another example of Noclador's ignorance and lack of respect (describing the native language of Varsei as "some obscure local dialect") here: [4] Gixz (talk) 01:05, 19 March 2013 (UTC)

Your personal attacks[edit]

Your comment on my Talk page is disruptive [5]. A few days ago,, I lost my temper and left an angry comment on an admin's Talk page. A day later, I acknowledged that I blew it, struck my own comments, and apologized. Now you have linked to the original comment calling it a personal attack, with no mention of my self-correction or apology. That is dishonest, lawyering. Please refrain from misrepresenting the truth and taking editor actions out of context in order to "win" games.Strangesad (talk) 14:59, 21 March 2013 (UTC)

Well, your edit history makes it clear that you tend to lose your temper at a lot of people. You should perhaps work on it. For the record, any further post from you on this talk page will be reported as harassment. I want nothing to do with you, as you have shown yourself to be a user with a bad temper and a disability to work with others.Jeppiz (talk) 15:11, 21 March 2013 (UTC)

arbitration[edit] — Preceding unsigned comment added by Humanpublic (talkcontribs) 18:48, 25 March 2013 (UTC)

I assume that that last item referred to me, however I am not an administrator, and several other editors who commented were also not administrators.

Sure. Every article has a talk page that is dedicated to discussing how to improve the article. If you think the source should be changed, you discuss that on the talk page of the article. If other users agree, the source can be changed. If most users oppose a change, with a relevant reason, then we usually don't change the source. For all lists of populations, we must use the same source for all cities.Jeppiz (talk) 14:24, 13 August 2013 (UTC)

Origins of football[edit]

Hello Jeppiz,

Unfortunately only half the text I provided is shown. It should have read as follows.

"Mike Roberts author of Same Old Game 2011 who undertook an in-depth study of football history is by definition a scholar. His findings support Gerald R. Gems & Gertrude Pfister authors of Understanding American Sports 2009. See talk football"

I have elaborated in Talk football under the heading Origins of football because I feel strongly FIFA's statement is misleading people. I would be happy to modify the text on the main page to demonstrate the point if necessary.

Paris strangeness[edit]

I thought that the 'Paris-La Défense' debacle was over (the talk page hadn't moved since a week), but since User:Der Statistiker's post this morning, no fewer than three anon or 'one time only' contributors have a) voted and b) tried to muddle the conversation further by adding more nonsense 'arguments' - and even complaining on the fr:Paris article talk page. We could use a second opinion, I myself don't know what to think. THEPROMENADER 12:16, 27 August 2013 (UTC)

It could be that the 'parachuters' are editors from French wikipedia responding to the 'mega-controversy' post left there by an anon user, but users without an account on English wikipedia. Doh… but still, all of this is not an 'over the table' way of getting consensus: it is sure that, by generating a false controversy, the French-article revisionists (snubbed on their own-language article) would come running to help spread their message to more ignorant folk. Sneaky as hell, but well calculated - talk about WP:GAME. THEPROMENADER 12:28, 27 August 2013 (UTC)
Correction: Two of the parachute editors are from 'skyscraper'. Go figure. THEPROMENADER 13:24, 27 August 2013 (UTC)

Strangeness Bis: I was looking through the article history to find out who did what to create all this fuss, and I see that, on the 5th of May 2013, User:Der Statistiker made his first edit to the Paris article, which was of course replacing the lead image with his own (the precious 'Marsfeld2' La Défense image, of course), and immediately starts a revert war over it. The the same day (after ~years~ of inactivity there) Minato-ku and Metropolitan appear on the talk page to defend Der Statistiker. There has obviously been some sort of networking going on here from the start. THEPROMENADER 23:32, 28 August 2013 (UTC)

About your revert ealier today: perhaps justified, but perhaps it wasn't the best thing to do while the 'move request' was still open. Anyhow it's probably going to be reverted back in the solitary 'gleefest' following the of the Paris aire urbaine article's move to "Paris metropolitan area".
Cue commentator: "And suddenly, in spite of (and ahead of) most every fact and reference, Wikipedia alone takes the initiative of transforming an obscure statistical tool into an imaginary 'mega-city' that no Francilen has ever heard of…" …what's most tiresome is the predictability of the abuses to come when this decision is brandished as 'proof' of its existence. THEPROMENADER 20:13, 7 September 2013 (UTC)
I could use your help in the debate whether to move the 'Paris aire urbaine' article. Would you support a move to 'Paris urban area'? That's what most references do (including the creators of the aire urbaine themselves), and I would support that as well. If you do agree, perhaps a word to that end (as you suggested) would help the admin closing the discussion. Thanks. THEPROMENADER 14:36, 15 September 2013 (UTC)

With all due respect, you are mistaken[edit]

I've just read Beider's paper, details on the Ashkenazi page. He would thoroughly endorse your argument that in encyclopedic terms Yiddish is Germanic.

today the Judeo-Centric approach represents the dominating paradigm only for linguists trained in Yiddish linguistics. However, it is not shared by academics approaching Yiddish from the point of view of general historical linguistics of which the Germanistic approach represents a particular case. For these scholars, the topic is ideologically neutral and it is not a surprise to see that in various international encyclopedias and general books about world languages, Yiddish is firmly placed together with NHG in the same branch of High German languages.p.92

I'm not convinced, but I'm rarely convinced by anything. The problem for me is that, in wikipedia's system as opposed to general encyclopedias, one must not take sides, or adopt as an assured fact a judgement that other experts in the field might contest. As Frakes and Beider's own article amply shows, Yiddish studies are split by diametrically opposed camps, and Beider says the Germanists are right. Perhaps I have overwikified myself, in insisting that a wiki neutral narrative should withhold final judgements and provisional certainties. In any case, Beider's remark is good warrant for the solid basis of your call. Cheers.Nishidani (talk) 10:50, 27 December 2013 (UTC)
