Hi, everyone

I'm new here and I'm loving the experience of participating in a living encyclopedia It's great.


Hi. Please don't cut and paste articles from one name to another one. That's what the "Move this page" link is for. By cutting and pasting, you lost the edit history, which keeps track of who made what edits, and that is a violation of copyright under the GFDL license, which Wikipedia works under. Also please note that not all characters work in article titles. You'll see that the article you created caused a problem with the special character "l" in the title. That's why the article is where it is, and why the disclaimer at the top of the page. Welcome to Wikipedia.  :) RickK 09:16, May 30, 2005 (UTC)

Yes, I know it. I noticed that just after I saved the article. My bad! And then, articles can't be deleted at all, and when I was about to put the deletion template and add it to the deletion page, my pc crushed! Yesterday was not a good day Jotomicron 18:09, 30 May 2005 (UTC)
Ack, I hate days like that. I can delete the redirect, if you want. RickK 21:38, May 31, 2005 (UTC)
Please! It'll be cleaner that way! thx Jotomicron 12:03, 3 Jun 2005 (UTC)


Thanks but look at the date that I posted it. It WAS the correct link, they have odviousdly changed the format of that website and the link has been broken.

I knew that! But I thought you could search for it again and post the correct link now! Maybe it's been dropped from the archives, or the site doesn't really allow search, but I wasn't able to find teh correct link. SO maybe you could. Anyway, it's your decision! Thanks for answering, by the way. (Please, sign your comments. Thank you) --Jotomicron | talk 30 June 2005 20:10 (UTC)

Added *some* more?!?[edit]

Wow. I hope you were being humble. That is a nice addition. I was going to add about a dozen more, but you already added those and more. Thanks for your contribution! --Deathphoenix 17:37, 20 July 2005 (UTC)

Hehe! Your welcome. I myself has once thought wheather such a thing like this one would be possible, but now I know it is! :). --Jotomicron | talk 17:58, 20 July 2005 (UTC)

Pigeonholing Oneself[edit]

Thought you may be interested in the Category:Neopagan Wikipedians and Category:Wiccan Wikipedians. Alex Law 06:04, 17 October 2005 (UTC)

Thanks! I'll have a look on those :) Jotomicron | talk 17:50, 17 October 2005 (UTC)

Style tip[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your changes to functional equation. An just a remark. Per the math style manual, variables should be italic, so k instead of k, etc. Just thought I would let you know. Cheers, Oleg Alexandrov (talk) 03:01, 27 January 2006 (UTC)

Portal de Portugal[edit]

Já abriu o Portal de Portugal na Wikipedia! Junta-te a nós para trabalharmos em prol de artigos, listas e imagens relacionadas com Portugal. No portal, encontrarás um artigo geral, um artigo biográfico, um artigo geográfico e uma imagem todas as semanas em destaque. Para além disso estão apresentadas também secções de Notícias, Curiosidades, Listas, Citações, Opentasks, informação sobre artigos recentes, etc. Futuramente teremos um WikiProject para geografia de Portugal (de modo a estandardizar todos os artigos relativos às localidades e divisões administrativas portuguesas), história de Portugal, biografias, e possivelmente desporto. Também temos em vista a criação de uma Colaboração Semanal para artigos sobre Portugal. Por isto, e tudo mais, pedimos-te que venhas ajudar-nos. Estamos também à procura de colaboradores, por isso, se estiveres interessado, é só pedires que já estás no grupo de manutenção do portal. Saudações! Gameiro 19:43, 28 February 2006 (UTC)

WikiProject Harry Potter[edit]

Hello, Jotomicron. Over at WikiProject Harry Potter we're trying to compile a list of active participants. Your name, along with all other project participants, has been placed on the inactive list. If you'd like to get involved again, please place your name back on the active list, and take a look at the project talk page for the latest happenings.

Words hardest to translate[edit]

Hi! Just stumbled upon your page, via saudade, interesting. Being a translator myself I often find there are words that are almost impossible to translate simply (using less than three words). The first that springs to my mind is the polish kilkanaście (keel-ka-NASH-che) which means any number between eleven and nineteen, emphasizing the fact that the speaker doesn't know how much exactly. There are more, I am just to distracted to think about them. Never heard of a radiostukacz, sorry. Cheers, Ouro (blah blah) 09:13, 10 October 2007 (UTC)


Hi. I found you in categories of users who can contribute in English and Portuguese. I myself am a native speaker of English, but I'm well on my way to learning Portuguese. Just check out my user page and talk page, and join in any of the discussions. To keep updated, you can even put a watch on my user page, which will automatically watch my talk page. :-) learnportuguese (talk) 20:28, 8 February 2008 (UTC)


Tudo bem?

Vim aqui para comentar que agradeceram pelo trabalho feito no wikilivro sobre grego moderno. Como você era um dos colaboradores dele, achei que gostaria de saber...

Apareça por lá... Boas contribuições são sempre bem vindas! =D

Até mais! Helder (talk) 22:01, 3 September 2009 (UTC)

A Request for Help[edit]

Hi there Jotomicron :), I noticed your username on Translators Available Portugguese to English. I was wondering if you could help with updating Riaz Ahmed Gohar Shahi on the Portuguese Wikipedia? Riaz Ahmed Gohar Shahi on the English Wikipedia has been majorly revamped- particularly, its being treated as a BLP now, since no one has been able to find evidence of his death. I'm sorry to say I know little Portuguese, so I'd really appreciate your help in this :), although I understand if you don't have the time. Thanks in advance!

Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference[edit]

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and you will still be able to manually mark your edits as being 'minor'. The only thing that's changed is that you will no longer have them marked as minor by default.

For established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. If you are familiar with the contents of WP:MINOR, and believe that it is still beneficial to the encyclopedia to have all your edits marked as such by default, then this discussion will give you the details you need to continue with this functionality indefinitely. If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 18:28, 14 March 2011 (UTC)



Today I found out that I can't edit pages on Wikipedia on IP issues. The block information mentioned the use of an open proxy, but I believe I am not in one. I am, though, accessing Wikipedia through my faculty's proxy, which is not open. Could this be the culprit of the issue? Can it be resolved? For your reference, the IP we're talking about is

Thanks for your help :) ~ Jotomicron 14:50, 22 December 2011 (UTC)

Portuguese translation[edit]

Hello. I was on Wikipedia:Translators available and notice that you were on the list for Portuguese to English translators and wondered if you could translate John VI of Portugal and/or Amélie of Leuchtenberg? Thank you or obrigado.--Queen Elizabeth II's Little Spy (talk) 00:10, 30 January 2012 (UTC)
