A belated welcome![edit]

Sorry for the belated welcome, but the cookies are still warm! Face-smile.svg

Here's wishing you a belated welcome to Wikipedia, Lactasamir. I see that you've already been around a while and wanted to thank you for your contributions. Though you seem to have been successful in finding your way around, you may benefit from following some of the links below, which help editors get the most out of Wikipedia:

Also, when you post on talk pages you should sign your name using four tildes (~~~~); that should automatically produce your username and the date after your post.

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! If you have any questions, feel free to leave me a message on my talk page, consult Wikipedia:Questions, or place {{helpme}} on your talk page and ask your question there.

Again, welcome! Dougweller (talk) 13:47, 8 April 2013 (UTC)

April 2013[edit]

Hello Lactasamir, and welcome to Wikipedia. While we appreciate your contributing to Wikipedia, there are certain things you must keep in mind about using information from your sources to avoid copyright or plagiarism issues here.

  • You can only copy/translate a small amount of a source, and you must mark what you take as a direct quotation with double quotation marks (") and a cited source. You can read about this at Wikipedia:Non-free content in the sections on "text". See also Wikipedia:Referencing for beginners, for how to cite sources here.
  • Aside from limited quotation, you must put all information in your own words and structure, in proper paraphrase. Following the source's words too closely can create copyright problems, so it is not permitted here; see Wikipedia:Close paraphrasing. (There is a college level introduction to paraphrase, with examples, hosted by the Online Writing Lab of Purdue.) Even when using your own words, you are still, however, asked to cite your sources to verify information and to demonstrate that the content is not original research.
  • Our primary policy on using copyrighted content is Wikipedia:Copyrights. You may also want to review Wikipedia:Copy-paste.
  • In very rare cases (that is, for sources that are public domain or compatibly licensed), it may be possible to include greater portions of a source text. However, please seek help at the help desk before adding such content to the article. 99.9% of sources may not be added in this way, so it is necessary to seek confirmation first. If you do confirm that a source is public domain or compatibly licensed, you will still need to provide full attribution; see Wikipedia:Plagiarism for the steps you need to follow.
  • Also note that Wikipedia articles may not be copied without attribution. If you want to copy from another Wikipedia project or article, you can, but please follow the steps in Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia.

It's very important that contributors understand and follow these practices, as policy requires that people who persistently do not must be blocked from editing. If you have any questions about this, you are welcome to leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. Dougweller (talk) 13:48, 8 April 2013 (UTC)

In any case, I don't think that belongs in the article David Keys is a journalist and although he does a lot of archaeology reporting he doesn't always get it right. We should wait until this gets through peer review and is properly published. One issue is of course the dating (something Stanford aknowledges) - a tool and a tusk caught up in the same net aren't necessarily the same date -- just on issue that hopefully peer review will sort out. And you won't get other archaeologists making serious responses unless they can see the data themselves, not just a newspaper article. Dougweller (talk) 13:51, 8 April 2013 (UTC)

Thank you for the Welcome Dougweller :) Lactasamir (talk) 12:50, 9 April 2013 (UTC)

I'm not sure if you were the person who removed the "Post World War II - Notable Residents" list from the Miami Beach page. If so, may I ask why? Thanks. Canamets. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Canamets (talkcontribs) 15:57, 10 May 2013 (UTC)

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Swastika may have broken the syntax by modifying 2 "()"s and 2 "{}"s. If you have, don't worry, just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

Your recent editing history at Temple of Artemis (Corfu) shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. Being involved in an edit war can result in your 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. See BRD for how this is done. 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. Δρ.Κ. λόγοςπράξις 21:14, 13 August 2013 (UTC)

Magdalenenberg moon calendar[edit]

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Magdalenenberg moon calendar, and it appears to include material copied directly from http://fallenangels.ning.com/profiles/blogs/early-celtic-stonehenge-located-in-black-forest.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. The article will be reviewed to determine if there are any copyright issues.

If substantial content is duplicated and it is not public domain or available under a compatible license, it will be deleted. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material.

Magdalenenberg moon calendar[edit]

I see that you have begun to address the problem in Magdalenenberg moon calendar, but, in my opinion, it still needs some work.

For example this phrase


research resulted in a date of Midsummer 618 BC, which makes it the earliest and most complete example of a Celtic calendar focused on the moon

appears in the article, with exactly the same working as in the source. If you are planning to clean up the final paragraph, that's great, but it cannot remain as is.--S Philbrick(Talk) 13:54, 10 June 2014 (UTC)

Your edit in Sybaris, formatting Google Books references[edit]

Hi Lactasamir, I noticed you made an edit to Sybaris on 31 March this year. Thank you for your edit. However, you added several secondary sources on the population of the city which simply repeated the 300,000 claim of Diodorus Siculus, a primary source. Because I did not see how this contributed anything I removed them. You also added that this was "shortly before 500 BC", but Diodorus and your secondary sources doesn't mention a specific year. However, you also gave two secondary sources for a claim of 100,000; one secondary didn't provide any primary source to back up that claim, the other gave Pseudo-Scymnus as a source. I kept this claim but referenced Pseudo-Scymnus directly instead of using the secondary source, because I think using primary sources is better.

However, I noticed that you just put links to Google Books in references without formatting them. This didn't look good in the references section. Also, could you please shorten the references to Google Books? For example, you give links like http://books.google.dk/books?id=of-ghBD9q1QC&pg=PA96&lpg=PA96&dq=sybaris+300,000+people&source=bl&ots=j4POjjCZ8R&sig=yX-BpwwAREm0VWcgH6_qZjW4aHU&hl=da&sa=X&ei=sWo5U4zLF4WJtAaAkoD4BQ&ved=0CE8Q6AEwBQ#v=onepage&q=sybaris%20300%2C000%20people&f=false but a link like this http://books.google.com/books?id=of-ghBD9q1QC&pg=PA96 goes to the same page on the English (rather than Danish) Google Books. --AlexanderVanLoon (talk) 11:35, 15 June 2014 (UTC)

Your edit in Syracuse[edit]

I noticed you also made an edit in the article on Syracuse, Sicily in which you give information on the city's historical population in classical antiquity. I'm sorry, but I also felt this had to be removed and just did so. First of all, the first paragraphs are supposed to give a summary of the subject: detailed figures on population don't belong there. Just mentioning the city equalled Athens in size is sufficient for the summary. The "history" section would be more appropriate for such details, but there I had already discussed the historical population in the fourth paragraph before you made your edit.

Regarding the content of your edit itself, I don't think it was necessary to provide so much sources. Most of them were very old and gave incredible estimates for the population. You seem to realize this yourself because you describe the 1,2 million estimate as "dubious". The first source you gave was recent and reliable with it's claim of 250,000, this source alone would have been sufficient. The reference provided for the fourth paragraph of the "History" section also contains recent scholarship and mentions a 250,000 figure. That reference is also slightly more detailed than your first reference. I hope you are okay with my reversions of your edits. I appreciate your effort and I hope my advice to you is useful. --AlexanderVanLoon (talk) 12:09, 15 June 2014 (UTC)

Copyright problem: Danube Valley cultures[edit]

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia! We welcome and appreciate your contributions, such as Danube Valley cultures, but we regretfully cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from either web sites or printed material. This article appears to contain material copied from , and therefore to constitute a violation of Wikipedia's copyright policies. The copyrighted text has been or will soon be deleted. While we appreciate contributions, we must require all contributors to understand and comply with our copyright policy. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously, and persistent violators are liable to be blocked from editing.

If you believe that the article is not a copyright violation, or if you have permission from the copyright holder to release the content freely under license allowed by Wikipedia, then you should do one of the following:

It may also be necessary for the text be modified to have an encyclopedic tone and to follow Wikipedia article layout. For more information on Wikipedia's policies, see Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

If you would like to begin working on a new version of the article you may do so at this temporary page. Leave a note at Talk:Danube Valley cultures saying you have done so and an administrator will move the new article into place once the issue is resolved. Dougweller (talk) 13:47, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

Multiple problems[edit]

I am finding copyvio in all of your substantive edits. I also note that you still are not citing material properly. Urls to Google books are great but absolutely must be accompanied by correct citations giving book title, author, publisher, year and vitally page number. Sources must reach WP:RS but I note that you use fringe sources such as [[Philip Coppens {author}]] and Michael Cahill[1] who believes in Atlantis. I am not at all convinced that you can write an article or indeed any large piece of text without copying and pasting from sources and your addition of copyright material today shows that you are not following our policy that I informed you about in April 2013 and that you have been told about in June and this month again. Dougweller (talk) 14:22, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

Again you are right, from now on i will follow Wikipedia rules. Thank you for correcting me my friend. :) Lactasamir (talk) 16:36, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

August 2014[edit]

Information icon Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you copied or moved text from Cycladic art into another page. While you are welcome to re-use Wikipedia's content, here or elsewhere, Wikipedia's licensing does require that you provide attribution to the original contributor(s). When copying within Wikipedia, this is supplied at minimum in an edit summary at the page into which you've copied content. It is good practice, especially if copying is extensive, to also place a properly formatted {{copied}} template on the talk pages of the source and destination. The attribution has been provided for this situation, but if you have copied material between pages before, even if it was a long time ago, please provide attribution for that duplication. You can read more about the procedure and the reasons at Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia. This is another type of copyvio but it still copyvio. Dougweller (talk) 14:24, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

Another welcome[edit]

Hello, Lactasamir! I saw your note on Dougweller's talk page. I think it's wonderful that you are editing on Wikipedia. I'm retired, and I also very much enjoy editing on WP. I honestly don't know much about adding material from sources and getting references right. I mostly just search for any errors in articles and try to improve wording where I can. I just wanted to make one suggestion and one offer of help:

  • Suggestion: You can use your Sandbox to write text and get references right before you add them to an article. (Be sure to save what you have written before you leave the Sandbox.) If you wish, you can even ask another editor to read and check what you have written in your Sandbox before you add it to an article. I'm sure you can find editors who would be happy to do that.
  • Offer: As I said, I don't know much about references, but if you would find it helpful, I would be glad to proofread your writing, including your paraphrasing of text from a source, or just help with wording a phrase or sentence. Just leave a note on my talk page: User talk:CorinneSD or leave me a note on your talk page and ping me with {{ping|CorinneSD}} so that I'll see it. Best regards, CorinneSD (talk) 17:53, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for the kind words and your suggestion and offer my friend, you are a wonderful person :) Lactasamir (talk) 20:06, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

    • That was indeed a great response and much appreciated. Lactasamir, I consider myself pretty good on sources so you can always run them past me if you have any doubts. I'm sorry that editing is so hard for you and impressed that you still do it. Dougweller (talk) 19:05, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

Thank you Dougweller it is so nice to meet nice people, and thank you for being so understanding. Have a nice day my friend. Lactasamir (talk) 20:06, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

Citations[edit]

A wiki-friend of mine, User:P123ct1 wrote up some notes on citations which I add below:

Instructions on how to compose a footnote using the WP templates

"There are instructions on how to do this at WP:FOOTNOTES at section 3.1 - see [2]. This is a brief summary of those instructions.

First put the cursor at the point in the edit text where you want the footnote to go, then click "Cite" in the edit strip at the top of the Edit Page, then click "Templates" on the left, and a drop-down menu appears. Choose "cite web" or "cite news" for articles and websites, "cite book" or "cite journal" for books and journals, click and a box comes up. Fill in the details of the citation, then click "Preview" and "Show parsed preview" to see it looks right (you can go back and correct anything by just correcting the box entries and then click those two "Previews" again). Then click "Insert" and the citation automatically goes into the text at the point where the cursor is. Remember to add the page number(s) of the book if you use "cite book".

Please note that the citation will not always go in at the point in the text where you pointed the cursor. It will depend on whether you use IE, Firefox or Chrome. But it is easy to move the citation to the right place once it is in the text."

I usually hit preview and copy and paste from that. When you are adding books you sometimes need to hit show extra fields. Dougweller (talk) 19:05, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for the good advice my friend :) I will definitely use it, thank you :) Lactasamir (talk) 20:18, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
