Districts of Laos[edit]

Thanks for adding the subdivision of the Laotian provinces, it was something I planned to do for quite some time already but always too busy with other tasks. Do you have any direct sources for these, or is it basically the information from statoids.org? I ask because for Xaisomboun there was apparently a change, two districts might have been reassigned to Vientiane province. But it is very hard to find good English sources on Laotian topics. See also Talk:Xaisomboun. andy 20:18, 8 November 2006 (UTC)

Of course, your help is definitely welcome and appreciated. I just hoped you'd have more information, Laos is still a widely covered topic here, due to lack of interest of editors here, lack of Laotians with Internet access and English knowledge, but also due to lack of English information sources about it. Anyway, keep on editing... andy 22:12, 8 November 2006 (UTC)

Perm Krai[edit]

Hi, John! I am sorry, but I had to revert your change to administrative divisions of Perm Krai again. The krai is not divided into "former Perm Oblast" and "former KPAO" as your edit leads to believe; rather, it is a single entity which includes Komi-Permyak Okrug (which itself is a transitionary unit). However, I can see that the current layout could use some improvement. If you want to help, modelling the list after administrative divisions of Adygea would be a lot more useful (and consistent). Let me know if you have any questions and thank you for your interest.—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); 14:44, 29 November 2006 (UTC)

Dude, I appreciate that and I respect it. But for those who understand Russian subdivision classifications, is the "rural settlement" or "rural locality" the same level as the "selsovet" or is it below the selsovet? I just want to be sure of it, just in case. Reply if necessarily possible. Johnluisocasio 13:09, 15 October 2007 (UTC)
I realize we keep responding to one other in one year increments, but, assuming you are still interested, I am going to answer this question (because I happened to notice it today completely by accident).
The way the terminology used in the English Wikipedia is now established, the term "rural settlement" refers to a type of municipal formation, while "rural locality" refers to a type of an inhabited locality. Rural settlements are municipal units which, more often than not, correspond to selsoviets (which are administrative-territorial units) one to one, while rural localities are populated places of rural type (i.e., villages, selos, auls, and such). On some (mostly older) pages, however, these two meanings are mixed up. Hope this helps!—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); 19:03, 3 October 2008 (UTC)
I see your point. But could you make a diagram that explains each territorial unit by level? jlog3000 (talk) 15:20, 4 October 2008 (UTC)
I'm afraid that with my graphics skills the result is going to be quite ghastly, although if anyone is willing to make such a diagram, I'll be more than willing to help with the definitions, hierarchy, and explanations (although the bulk of information is already available in articles such as subdivisions of Russia, federal subjects of Russia, and types of inhabited localities in Russia).—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); 15:50, 6 October 2008 (UTC)
No wonder in some federal subjects that the average is like 1.2 rural localities (inhabited and uninhabited) per selsovet. How come? jlog3000 (talk) 16:38, 14 October 2008 (UTC)
A selsoviet is supposed to be a fairly compact unit. If there are quite a few villages located in the vicinity of one another, then the selsoviet may include many of them (minding the population caps, though). If villages are separated by large distances (as is the case in Siberia and in the Russian Far East), then a selsoviet is usually organized around just one village (minding the population caps again). Does this answer your question?—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); 18:19, 14 October 2008 (UTC)
Can't argue with that, but just to be sure, can you post an example of a selsoviet with some rural localities? And how come most cities/towns correspond in districts and selsoviets while a few correspond "independently" by other subdivisions' jurisdictions? jlog3000 (talk) 12:14, 17 October 2008 (UTC)
Ashevskaya Volost in Pskov Oblast, for example, includes 36 rural localities (a volost in Pskov Oblast is the same as a selsoviet in some other federal subjects). As for you second question, there are two types of cities/town in Russia. Larger ones tend to be in direct jurisdiction of a federal subject (such as Pskov and Velikiye Luki in Pskov Oblast). While they sometimes serve as administrative centers of the districts (Velikiye Luki, for example, is the administrative center of Velikoluksky District), administravely they are never a part of them. Smaller towns are normally subordinated to the districts directly (Sebezh, for example). In other words, if you look at the administrative divisions of any given federal subject (ignoring closed cities as to not overcomplicate the example), the first level is districts and the cities/towns under jurisdiction of the federal subject, and the second level is, for districts, selsoviets, towns under jurisdiction of the districts, and sometimes urban-type settlements. The second level for the cities/towns under jurisdiction of the federal subject is city districts and occasionally selsoviets which are under the city/town's jurisdiction (but are not a part of it). I haven't just confused you even more, have I? :)—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); 16:06, 17 October 2008 (UTC)
Any maps of some federal subjects with all the subdivisions within it? jlog3000 (talk) 14:03, 21 October 2008 (UTC)
There's one of Moscow Oblast. Note, however, that it is the map of municipal, not administrative divisions (Moscow Oblast no longer has selsoviets). Most (although not all) of the municipal divisions correspond to administrative divisions 1:1, and municipal rural settlements mostly correspond to the old selsoviets.—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); 15:17, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

Non-working links of Russia subdivisions[edit]

Hey, Ëzhiki. To continue our talk, but in a different section, I found some links that are now defunct:

I was wondering if you know someone that still has or had them after 2002. jlog3000 (talk) 12:38, 23 October 2008 (UTC)

The Census site may be down every now and then, but I was able to follow these links just now without a problem. Perhaps you tried the links during the downtime? The Consultant site (at least its main database portion, to which the link above leads) only works in IE, so you wouldn't see the text if you tried accessing it with any other browser.—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); 14:50, 23 October 2008 (UTC)
OK, I've changed the Constitution link to a more static text on the Consultant site; should work in all browsers now. As for the Census links, come to think of it, they look as if they were done with ActiveX, so it is probably an IE thing as well. There should be a link to an Excel version (which is still restrictive); I'll see if I can dig it up.—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); 14:56, 23 October 2008 (UTC)
Well then, if possibly done, could you post the sub-links related with those above? Hope there's another to contact with you. jlog3000 (talk) 13:59, 21 April 2009 (UTC)
Sorry, I forgot all about it. I have made the changes now, though (you may need to purge your browser's cache to see the changes). Also, the best way to reach me is via my talk page—while I do keep your talk page on my watchlist, it's very easy to miss your follow-ups to older threads. Cheers,—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); 14:12, April 21, 2009 (UTC)
Sure: [1] and [2]. You are welcome to muck around my contributions as well.—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); 15:09, April 21, 2009 (UTC)
Haha, good one! Muck around... lol What does that mean? jlog3000 (talk) 15:16, 21 April 2009 (UTC)
According to Wiktionary, apparently the same thing as muck about :)—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); 15:54, April 21, 2009 (UTC)

Bird lists[edit]

I have been reverting some of your good faith conversions of lists back from alphabetical to taxonomic order, and also some double linking (from common and scientific name. It's possible that I've also unintentionally reverted other edits that you have made, if that's so my apologies, but it's difficult to restore without using rollback at some stage. jimfbleak 19:27, 24 April 2007 (UTC)

Ust-Orda Buryatia[edit]

Hi, John! I have reverted your edits which re-added Ust-Orda Buryatia. Please note that as of January 1, 2008 is no longer a federal subject, but merely an administrative division of Irkutsk Oblast. Please see Ust-Orda Buryat Okrug for further information. Thanks.—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); 16:05, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

Quote markss[edit]

John, please stop adding the quote marks to articles on administrative divisions of federal subjects of Russia. I had to revert your yesterday's additions because these quote marks make no sense where you are adding them to—they are ungrammatical, look ugly, and make readers wonder just why they are there in the first place. If you wish to emphasize the section titles, please consider other methods. Thanks.—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); 21:35, 23 January 2008 (UTC)

Now that you mentioned it, what do you mean by "considering other methods"? jlog3000 (talk) 14:10, 21 April 2009 (UTC)

List of mergers in Miyagi Prefecture[edit]

Nuvola apps important yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article List of mergers in Miyagi Prefecture, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. Do you want to opt out of receiving this notice? Stifle (talk) 20:43, 19 April 2008 (UTC)

All I wanted to do is make a page of articles of mergers of each prefecture that are needed to be yet complete. That's all. And I accidentally put Iwate Prefecture on the article List of mergers in Miyagi Prefecture. Now I fixed that part. Let me know if there are corrections for me to put or revert back to. jlog3000 (talk) 20:52, 19 April 2008 (UTC)
You've removed the proposed deletion template, as you're entitled to do. There's nothing else for you to do for now. Stifle (talk) 11:40, 21 April 2008 (UTC)
As of now, is it allowed then and what do you mean by "you're entitled to do"? jlog3000 (talk) 13:32, 22 April 2008 (UTC)

Japan mergers[edit]

Thanks for splitting out the merger histories from all the prefecture articles. I created Category:Lists of mergers in Japan in order to keep them all together. I also made a page for Tokyo, and am getting ready to do the same for Hokkaidō's subprefectures. At this point, List of mergers and dissolutions of municipalities in Japan is almost redundant to the category, except for the external links that point to more info in each section. Those should probably be verified, and moved to the new pages as references. I'll start on that, if you don't beat me to it. Thanks again. Neier (talk) 10:48, 4 May 2008 (UTC)

I appreciate your respect and gratitude for this accomplishment. jlog3000 (talk) 14:14, 4 May 2008 (UTC)
Great job dude. Sorry I can't be on much. --Hirohisat(Talk) 05:06, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

Question about Japan merger[edit]

Hi - I'm wondering why you changed all the "Senboku" references to "Semboku". Although the town of Semboku may be using the "m" instead of the "n" on their website (a fact I find surprising and I think that actually is a mistake on their website), the Senboku Region (Senboku-gun) has not changed. I am in Misato-cho right now and all the road signs here that mention either the town or the area all use "Senboku". I plan on double-checking at the Misato-cho town hall this week, but I was wondering where you got this information. Thanks! BWH76 (talk) 10:59, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

To answer your question, I did those just to match the context of the articles in Wikipedia. jlog3000 (talk) 16:11, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Regions of China[edit]

Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not meet basic Wikipedia criteria may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as an appropriate article, and if you can indicate why the subject of this article is appropriate, you may contest the tagging. To do this, add {{hangon}} on the top of the page and leave a note on the article's talk page explaining your position. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would confirm its subject's notability under the guidelines.

defaultsort[edit]

I noticed you've replaced several {{defaultsort}} tags with macronned versions, like this edit. In order for the sorting mechanism to work properly, you should not ever include macrons in the defaultsort. The changes you've made are likely a result of a search/replace that has gone unchecked, but, if possible I think it would be good if you could fix the articles so the sorting is correct again. You can refer to Wikipedia:MOS-JA#Category link sorting of names and macronned titles if you have any questions. Neier (talk) 00:31, 8 February 2009 (UTC)

Disambiguation page creation[edit]

Hello! I see that you've been creating a bunch of disambiguation pages and redirects, which are great. One thing I wanted to mention, though, is that once you've got one disambiguation page created (say Buffalo Bulls basketball), there's no need to create more disambiguation pages for the same subject. On the alternate titles (SUNY-Buffalo Bulls basketball for example), just redirect them to the disambiguation page that you created. That way everyone looking for the topic will go to the same disambiguation page, so that if any changes need to be made to that disambiguation page, it only has to be done in one place. Keep up the great work! -Niceguyedc Go Huskies! 04:31, 27 September 2012 (UTC)

Boldfacing within article texts[edit]

I notice that you've boldfaced the names of a number of college sports teams within the "Athletics" sections of articles on the colleges, e.g. at Peru State College. According to MOS:BOLD, this isn't correct Wikipedia style: the policy states that boldface is acceptable "only for certain usages", which are listed. None of those usages seems to apply to this case; so I'd encourage you to discontinue the practice, and to revert boldfacing that you've already done in inadvertent contravention of WP style. Thanks -- Ammodramus (talk) 21:23, 11 November 2012 (UTC)

College sports team names[edit]

Could I take exception to a phrase that you've introduced to a number of articles on colleges, in the "Athletics" section? The phrase is, to quote one incidence of it, "Dana College teams, nicknamed athletically as the Vikings..."

First, "Vikings" isn't the team's nickname; it's their actual name. Second, "nicknamed athletically" is a very strange phrase in English. I can run athletically up a flight of stairs, or lift a heavy box of books athletically; but nicknaming something doesn't generally require a great deal of physical exertion and sweating.

I'd suggest an alternative like "Dana College's sports teams, the Vikings..." or "...teams, known as the Vikings,..." Ammodramus (talk) 14:37, 29 November 2012 (UTC)

Ok. Thanks for the warning of advice. I'll try re-correct those as I possibly can. jlog3000 (talk) 14:44, 29 November 2012 (UTC)

Cut and paste moves[edit]

Hi Johnluisocasio. When you want to change the name of a page, please don't simply copy and paste the contents, as you did from UBC Okanagan to University of British Columbia Okanagan. Doing so violates the cc-by-say license that all Wikipedia pages are authored under. Instead, we need to move the page. Since the latter page already existed as a redirect, it did need to be moved by an admin, which you can do by leaving a request at WP:RM. I've gone ahead and done that change for you. Qwyrxian (talk) 22:26, 3 January 2013 (UTC)

University of Miami[edit]

Hi. I have reverted a couple of your edits to the article for the following reasons:

  • You keep adding the abbreviations for NCAA, ACC, and FBS, when the terms are not used in the rest of the article. We do not need to signify that these entities are known by these abbreviated names unless the names come up again. If you are adding them because you feel people should know that they are known by these names, readers can go to the NCAA and ACC pages linked to in the article.
  • You also seem fit to remove links to the various sports that the teams participate in. While you may very be well aware that "Football" means "American football" and the like, there should be links to lead to the proper pages.

Please do not institute these changes again.—Ryulong (琉竜) 15:04, 29 January 2013 (UTC)

I meant no disrespect about it. But if you don't believe me, then back off. Thank you. jlog3000 (talk) 15:07, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
I have not said anything about not believing you. I just simply think the changes you are making are not necessary. You do not need to give the abbreviation for something unless that abbreviation is used on the same page in another instance.—Ryulong (琉竜) 15:10, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
Okay I'm seeing you're doing this across the project. You do not have to add this information to every article. And also when you put parentheses inside something already in parentheses you use brackets.—Ryulong (琉竜) 15:13, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
But at least it should be necessary. If my help isn't enough, then it won't be worth it. jlog3000 (talk) 15:16, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
You don't have to add "National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA)" and "Football Subdivision Level (FBS)" to every article on American colleges that have football teams. It's not necessary so stop doing it. Just fix the articles in other ways that do not include adding abbreviations for these entities when they're not used on the page.—Ryulong (琉竜) 15:18, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
Please stop making these changes to university and NCAA team articles. They are not helpful.—Ryulong (琉竜) 15:23, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
Then where else can I edit changes for the project besides the articles here on Wikipedia? Then I'll stop. jlog3000 (talk) 15:25, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
What are you talking about? What project?—Ryulong (琉竜) 15:28, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
The one that I'm recently editing the schools'/teams' articles with the basic specific info. And to make everyone happy, undo every other change that I've done of the ACC, Big East, Big Ten and Big 12 schools/teams that I've thought it was necessary (but in your humble opinion, it was not). That way, this argument should be over. I'm tired of being mocked because of something that I thought it was helpful for me to do. End of discussion. It won't happen again. jlog3000 (talk) 15:31, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
I'm not mocking you. Is there some sort of language barrier thing going on? All I did was say "This isn't useful" and then asked why you were doing it when you continued to do it. No one gets to unilaterally decide to change the formatting of every article in a topic area without explaining why when asked about it.—Ryulong (琉竜) 15:38, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
And I asked you where else can I put my edits, but you avoid that question, with you stating that I should stop those, which I did. And the others have been reverted back before my changes? jlog3000 (talk) 15:41, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
You just shouldn't make the changes period. I'm not here to give youan alternative location to enact this project you have in your head.—Ryulong (琉竜) 15:50, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
Keep it up. And I won't make those changes. And as far as I'm concerned, this argument is over. jlog3000 (talk) 15:52, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
Keep what up? What argument? Seriously, I'm having problems understanding you, and it seems you are having the same problems as I am.—Ryulong (琉竜) 15:54, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
See? You're doing it again. That's the argument. I've seen everything you said about not making the changes and stuff, but you kept talking about it after everything I've said about it and stopped. I just wanna end this in peace. jlog3000 (talk) 15:56, 29 January 2013 (UTC)

Removal of metric conversion templates[edit]

Question: what's the reason for the numerous removals of metric conversion in Japan municipality articles, e.g. 86 kilometres (53 mi) to 86.00 km² in Uruma? ---> Prburley (talk) 01:50, 30 October 2013 (UTC)

Only just because I wanna make things fairly balanced. Nothing offensive. jlog3000 (talk) 10:59, 30 October 2013 (UTC)
Cool. But the metric/customary conversions are standard across all articles, specifically geography-related articles--that's why the convert templates exist. Please read MOS:CONVERSIONS. Thanks. ---> Prburley (talk) 12:28, 30 October 2013 (UTC)
Now that you say that, do this favor for me. Try putting that template on ALL of the edits I did on all of Japan's current and defunct municipalities. jlog3000 (talk) 12:44, 30 October 2013 (UTC)
This is across all current and defunct municipalities? And, did you remove them throughout the entirety of the articles, or just in the opening sentences? ---> Prburley (talk) 13:59, 30 October 2013 (UTC)
On all current and defunct municipalities, yes. BUT, on the sentences that say "As of 2012, the municipality has an estimated population of ??,??? and a population density of ???.?? persons per km². The total area is ??.?? km²" jlog3000 (talk) 14:20, 30 October 2013 (UTC)
I'd revert/correct them all--the article for Tokyo will give you an idea of how to use the conversion templates of all kinds.
Johnluisocasio
automatically supplies the per km²/per mile that you can use in the body text. ---> Prburley (talk) 14:36, 30 October 2013 (UTC)
Also "has" should be in the past tense--I've never seen a population statistic current to the day viewed on the prefectural/municipality site. And if the population given is pre-2013 you could update that by going to the municipality website, it's standard on those websites in Japan. ---> Prburley (talk) 14:36, 30 October 2013 (UTC)
Oh ok. Hope you didn't re-modify the " population density part as "density". jlog3000 (talk) 14:47, 30 October 2013 (UTC)
I wouldn't use "population" + "population density" within the same sentence, it seems like overkill. But I wouldn't modify it either from what's already there. ---> Prburley (talk) 15:17, 30 October 2013 (UTC)
Back to reverting/adding back the Convert templates -- how many articles did you modify, and how can they be reverted? ---> Prburley (talk) 15:17, 30 October 2013 (UTC)

Lozovo and Sveti Nikole municipalities[edit]

Hello and thanks for your recent edits on articles of some of Macedonia's municipalities. I was just wondering where you had discovered that Lozovo Municipality and Sveti Nikole Municipality are in the Eastern Statistical Region and not Vardar. This is contradictory to what I've seen thus far. Regards. --Local hero talk 01:13, 10 September 2014 (UTC)

Hello, and you're welcome. And I'm trying my hardest to edit at almost every current municipality (except those that existed between 1996 and 2003 or 2004). About the Lozovo and Sveti Nikole municipality articles, I knew that they were part of the Eastern Macedonia statistical region and not within the Vardar statistical region. Then, I got a bit confused about that. So I'll try to revert those back to its rightful place. jlog3000 (talk) 11:05, 10 September 2014 (UTC)
