Australia - East Timor[edit]

I'm wondering as to why you wouldn't like to change the information about East Timor in the Australian continent? You'd have to change the graphic of the article, etc. So please, if you are successful or anyone else is confident to do so, then please proceed, so we can have the right information. 173.206.188.180 (talk) 22:50, 23 July 2014 (UTC)

Re: Eastern Europe[edit]

Find a source and I'll be okay with it. At the present, your source only says a small part of it is in "Continental Europe". Eastern Europe is a geopolitical term, and just because its stated as being part of Continental Europe, does not make it Eastern Europe... i.e. I agree that Kazakhstan is partly in Europe, but I don't agree that it fits into Eastern Europe. --Buffer v2 (talk) 00:14, 14 November 2008 (UTC)

It is in the eastern part of the continent of Europe. Therefore, it is in Eastern Europe by pure geographical definition. The article is not just about a geopolitical term, and even the geopolitical term has multiple possible meanings.Khajidha (talk) 15:23, 14 November 2008 (UTC)
Whoops, just noticed that the article is a geopolitical article. For some reason I thought it was just a general Eastern European article, I'll remove the material myself.Khajidha (talk) 15:26, 14 November 2008 (UTC)

English lessons[edit]

Thanks for your comment on my user page. I really appreciate that. If you ever observe systematic language mistakes in my writing, please do not hesitate telling me. I am lazy, and this is the easiest way to learn ;-) Tomeasy T C 00:09, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

Marvel comics mutates[edit]

Dear Khajidha,

Actually, I think this article should be called "List of Marvel Comics mutates", but I don't know how to change it. Do you? I'd appreciate it if you could do it. In the meantime, I'll create a redirect page of that name. Rosencomet (talk) 19:48, 17 June 2009 (UTC)

Never mind, I think I got it. Rosencomet (talk) 19:54, 17 June 2009 (UTC)

Transformers[edit]

The TF Project is now semi-active, but there's not much consensus going on outside the deletions. NotARealWord (talk) 16:23, 10 September 2010 (UTC)

I don't think I'll be active with this project. I don't really think Wikipedia should have articles for most (almost all) TFs, anymore than it should have articles for every character in every Shakespearean play. Basically one article giving a general overview of the toys (ALL of them), one giving a general overview of the TV shows (ALL of them), one giving a general overview of the comics (ALL of them), and one giving a general overview of the movies is all that is really needed. To the real world outside TF fandom even such high profile characters as Optimus Prime and Megatron are mere details with no real discernable affect on the world apart from that of the show as a whole. People interested in DETAILED information should be directed to a specialized reference dealing ONLY with TFs. --Khajidha (talk) 19:27, 10 September 2010 (UTC)
I know that. On the project talk page, we're trying to decide just what is fancruft. I don't think much consensus can be reached with just four people, which is why I'm certain we need help. NotARealWord (talk) 21:28, 10 September 2010 (UTC)

Pros and cons of adding 1,000,000 articles to the list[edit]

I've opened a discussion to discuss the merits and flaws of reporting French and German Wikipedias as having one million articles.

Attitude[edit]

I don't appreciate being told about writing clear sentences. If you can't pull your head in, a public project such as Wikipedia is not suitable for you. For future reference, it's polite to refer to someone by name rather than "he / she / that man who's still standing here" when that person is in your conversation and you're talking about them to others.

More Transformers stuff[edit]

The topic of unlicensed fan-products has come up once again on the TF wikiproject. Since you have commented on this topic previously, perhaps you might want to comment this time too. NotARealWord (talk) 17:27, 10 March 2011 (UTC)

Your opinion is required[edit]

As a participant who has voiced an opinion over at the TF WikiProject about proposals to change the article formats, a set out proposal has been provided and as a participant in the overall discussions, your agreement or disagreement in regards to them is required, if you so wish to provide an answer.

Move BRICS to BRIC?[edit]

Africa map[edit]

Hello ! You did a mistake on this map : [[Africa-regions.png. Zimbabwe is in East Africa, so it must be in orange and not in red. See this link : http://unstats.un.org/unsd/methods/m49/m49regin.htm Thank you very much. Mightymights (talk) 22:44, 30 July 2011 (UTC)

I was going by the discussion previously on the page. I realized some time later that the UN definition actually put it in E Africa and not S Africa, but had not been back to fix it. Thank you for taking care of it for me. --Khajidha (talk) 02:46, 31 July 2011 (UTC)
I corrected the map (south sudan is in north africa according to the UN). Mightymights (talk) 12:14, 31 July 2011 (UTC)

User Page[edit]

Khajidha, why dont you create user page? If you need help, i can help you? But that red one, in all discussions... :( :) Its up to you, sure! I just ask! :) --WhiteWriter speaks 16:30, 10 October 2011 (UTC)

Please see my proposal and give your views and opinions[edit]

It is regarding "International recognition of Kosovo" and article size. It is not a POV proposal, just a purely technical matter regarding the KB size of the article which is currently too big. Please see my proposal here and give your views and opinions. Regards IJA (talk) 14:24, 25 October 2011 (UTC)

Mediation on the map of continental models[edit]

Hi. In case you're interested... Aridd (talk) 00:31, 17 December 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for your comment. I've moved the issue here (onto Commons). Aridd (talk) 22:42, 17 December 2011 (UTC)

Well, the creation of that second map is helpful. The problem is, it's still wrong in its current shape, and (in my view) shouldn't be used as such. The islands would need to be switched from pink to grey, for example. Aridd (talk) 17:15, 20 December 2011 (UTC)

The other map shouldn't be used to illustrate an article that uses terms that are not used on the map. If an article talks about the continent of Australia, the map should label the continent as Australia. I'm not sure how to edit the image or I'd change it myself. --Khajidha (talk) 18:04, 20 December 2011 (UTC)
I would also edit it myself if I knew how. I've requested that it be done (i.e., that the islands be switched to grey). In the meantime, neither of those maps is really appropriate for the "continents" article. The best would indeed be to have a correct map displaying Australia. Rather than having to choose between a correct map which doesn't use the same name as the lead section of the article, or an incorrect map which provides erroneous "information" to readers (rather problematic for an encyclopedia!). As it is, I'm somewhat concerned that people will look at the article and map and go away believing that the name "Australia" can apply to the entire area in pink.

March 2012[edit]

Your recent editing history at Republic of Kosovo shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. Being involved in an edit war can result in you being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

To avoid being blocked, instead of reverting please consider using the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection. STOP! This article is under 1RR parole per week and are required to discuss any content reversions on the article talk page. Be careful, Khajidha! WhiteWriterspeaks 21:32, 2 March 2012 (UTC)

It was not my intention to edit war, my first reversion was only to restore the previously established English variant on the page. I did so assuming that the GAYousefSaanei was simply unaware of the consensus about using British English on the page. After he (?) reverted my revert the first time I also added a note to his talk page informing him of the standard. His edit summaries when reverting my edits, however seem very argumentative. I note that he reverted me again after my second reversion, an act that has since been undone by User:Seb az86556. I have no desire to edit war and am stepping back from the article for now. --Khajidha (talk) 23:42, 2 March 2012 (UTC)

Links[edit]

Well, actually you did removed some links, but than there was a link just like the same you removed in the sentence before. Why not make yourself an usepage? People with userpages in red links often vandalize article. If you do intend to contribute seriously, make that to a blue link, for your own sake :) Anything you do on your userpage will turn it into a blue. Hafspajen (talk) 14:21, 15 September 2013 (UTC)

Well, I did separate that last clause into its own sentence. If you look closely, no links were removed but the title "Postern of Fate" was repeated in the new version. The previous version just seemed horrendously clunky. I've been here for a few years, I just don't have much to say about myself. --Khajidha (talk) 14:43, 15 September 2013 (UTC)
  • I did look, and I realize that I was the stupid one. Never mind if you do not want to tell about yourself, it is not obligatory Face-smile.svg Hafspajen (talk) 15:20, 15 September 2013 (UTC)

Hi, please add your reasoning for wanting the page deleted here: Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Czechia - the name dispute. Mark Arsten (talk) 18:23, 29 September 2013 (UTC)

KYIV[edit]

And then you worry? You what it touches? This is us - Ukrainian - should be more offended that the occuppants and their descendants and, unfortunately, ordinary Russians who don't know the true history Ukrainian-Moscovia's relations - because Ukraine was repeatedly occupied "brotherly" Muscovy-Russia - did not realize that it can not continue to remain a Russian name. That they are "struggling" to everything remained as before - that was further Russian name of KYIV.--Бучач-Львів (talk) 14:36, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
I don't care what name you use for my country or any of the cities in it. It's your language, it is none of my business. What can it POSSIBLY matter to you what I call your country or city in my language? It is as ridiculous as you telling me I can no longer use the word "blue" for that color. Basically, English uses Kiev for the city and you need to pull up your big girl panties and deal with it. If you can't, that's just too bad but it will change absolutely nothing about the English language. --Khajidha (talk) 15:52, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
Basically, English uses Kiev - russian name of the Ukrainian city of Kyiv. Whew. Because so used. Used not distinguish Ukrainian from Russian. Аnd some Russian authors in English wiki laugh with you, and we.--Бучач-Львів (talk) 13:29, 30 August 2014 (UTC) Where you are born? What is your nationality?
As I said on your talk page, I am an American. Before you ask, I am of German, Scottish, and Irish ancestry.--Khajidha (talk) 13:35, 30 August 2014 (UTC)
And, no, English uses the English name Kiev. That it was derived from the transliteration of the Russian name is immaterial and irrelevant. It has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with whether we can distinguish Russian and Ukranian and everything to do with the fact that it is ACTUAL ENGLISH LANGUAGE USAGE. Kyiv is, at best, a rare variant in English. --Khajidha (talk) 17:37, 4 September 2014 (UTC)
if you - and like you - do not understand basic things in Ukrainian - Kiev, and Kiev, - is in Russian, then what can you say? Truth to tell you I will not, because you are so far from it, as the Russians of Ukrainian.--Бучач-Львів (talk) 10:54, 7 September 2014 (UTC)
How can you not understand the simple fact that Kiev is NOT a Russian word, it is an English one. The Russian word is Киев. The English language will continue to use the English name. --Khajidha (talk) 14:50, 7 September 2014 (UTC)
