Basque Portal?[edit]

Kaixo, I'm contacting you because you figure in Category:User eu, meaning that you speak some Basque. You must therefore be Basque yourself or have an intense connection with the Basque Country.

I am thinking that maybe was a good idea to create a Portal (or maybe a Wikiproject? or both?) on the Basque theme but I feel such kind of project requires more than just one person.

If you are interested, please comment in my talk page.

Enjoy, --Sugaar 10:30, 4 November 2006 (UTC)

I (= wannabe polyglot) do (!)[edit]

...enough so, that when I read your User page (and of course your Babel boxes) for the first time, I immediately checked History for the Page to see if it had been vandalized, as I simultaneously reviewed appropriate avenues for action. Seeing who'd performed the edit, I realized that my concern was misplaced — but considered that even so, you might like some feedback. So here you have it. -- Deborahjay (resuming follow-up on what I came here to do), 05:44, 23 December 2006 (UTC)

Fukuyama (City) - Thanks![edit]

Your thorough explanation was doubly welcome. I found the content helpful, but appreciated even more the considerations you noted in the particular context-sensitive use of language. I wish all translators were as conscientious!

For the record: in this present assignment, captions for a series of documentary photos about the early years of the Holocaust Education Center, I've decided to describe its location as "...Fukuyama, a city near Hiroshima," without adding any nomenclature qualifying the latter (i.e. prefecture vs. city). The pertinent aspect is "Hiroshima" as an instance of mass killing during WWII.

So thanks again, and I'm looking forward to seeing your editing in the future (and may be back with more queries as time goes on...). -- Deborahjay 08:52, 23 December 2006 (UTC)

Re. Stupid Question[edit]

Hey. Try using command <font color="red"></font> instead of span style. That should do it. You can also pick hundreds of colors here and e.g. use "#DC143C" for crimson insted of "red". I hope this helps. Regards,--Húsönd 13:31, 4 January 2007 (UTC)

WikiProject Japan taskforces[edit]

In order to encourage more participation, and to help people find a specific area in which they are more able to help out, we have organized taskforces at WikiProject Japan. Please visit the Participants page and update the list with the taskforces in which you wish to participate. Links to all the taskforces are found at the top of the list of participants.

Please let me know if you have any questions, and thank you for helping out! ···日本穣? · Talk to Nihonjoe 00:43, 8 August 2007 (UTC)


Would you be interested in help expanding a series of Anime related articles? I need help from a Japanese speaking person to add material from Japanese sources. -- Cat chi? 17:40, 22 August 2007 (UTC)


I will remove the deletion tag. However, you are to work on it, and give more detailed information. Consider using {{underconstruction}} if you are working on it. (I love entei (talk) 04:36, 23 December 2007 (UTC))

Judging by the broken links, and lack of information, it looked like a very poor article. (I love entei (talk) 04:41, 23 December 2007 (UTC))

The importance was hard to find. Considering the format, broken links, etc. (I love entei (talk) 04:46, 23 December 2007 (UTC))

It seem's you copied and pasted it from a site. Don't you preview articles before you submit them? Again, the article didn't look very notable. It was uncategorised, had broken Wikipedia links, and needed cleanup. (I love entei (talk) 04:54, 23 December 2007 (UTC))

I checked it again. It also looks like the article isn't verfiable, as there are no references, sources, or links for it. (I love entei (talk) 05:34, 23 December 2007 (UTC))

The Pérez de Lazarraga case[edit]

Hi, Madler. I think that if the problem is serious enough, you can go to WP:ANI and try to get the intervention of an administrator.

But if it's just an unintentional error, you should pedagogically write to the user in question showing him how Speedy deletion can only be asked for in certain specific cases 8which wasn't the case here, I understand). That he/she should have asked for AFD (regular deletion) or rather have tried first to communicate with the author to discuss whatever shortcomings.

My own opinion is that there's some people that just seems to have nothing to add but a lot to mess around... but guess it's just my opinion.

Anyhow, if the case is not serious, I would just leave it in a personal discussion. It's not likely that you get "disciplinary action" for an error nor that it will serve for anything. Leave ANI for really serious cases.

Btw, I'd suggest changing "Señor de la Torre de Larrea" by "Lord of Larrea Tower". There's no sense in having that title in Spanish. In fact, I think I'll change that myself.

Regards, --Sugaar (talk) 17:18, 23 December 2007 (UTC)

Basque literature[edit]

I am Basque myself, indeed. And I think we should discuss in English if possible. Largely because of courtesy towards other contributors who might be interested in our discussion and also for transparency.

Have you checked the List of Basques#Writers? There are some Basque language authors already there, with their own articles or stubs. Others lack of anything yet.

It would indeed be very very interesting to create an article on Basque literature, specificaally on Basque-language literature. Sadly I'm not the most idoneous person to do it. For instance Lazarraga was totally unkown to me until a you posted in my talk page and I can't read Basque at a "dense" or erudite level. But I may be able to help with technical issues.

For instance, it could be useful to create a template of those that appear by the right side of articles. Check Template:History of the Basque people for an example (use edit to see the source). Yet it will need some consideration to make sure it's not too extensive. Well, just an idea.

Enjoy, --Sugaar (talk) 06:22, 24 December 2007 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Template:User cu[edit]

A tag has been placed on Template:User cu requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section T3 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a deprecated or orphaned template. After seven days, if it is still unused and the speedy deletion tag has not been removed, the template will be deleted.

If the template is intended to be substituted, please feel free to remove the speedy deletion tag and please consider putting a note on the template's page indicating that it is substituted so as to avoid any future mistakes (<noinclude>{{transclusionless}}</noinclude>).

Thanks. --MZMcBride (talk) 19:57, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

WP:RUSSIA roll call and your input required

Privet. You are receiving this message as you were listed on the membership list of WP:RUSSIA at Wikipedia:WikiProject Russia/Members. Recent times has seen minimal activity within WikiProject Russia, and there is an attempt to re-invigorate the project and have it become more organised into a fully-fledge functioning project, with the aim of increasing the quality of Russia-related articles across English wikipedia.

As we don't know which listed members are active within the project and Russia-related article, all listed members are receiving this message, and are requested to re-affirm their active status on Russia-related article by re-adding their username to Wikipedia:WikiProject Russia/Members by adding:


to the membership list. You may also like to place {{User Russian Project}} on your userpage, as this will also place you in Category:WikiProject Russia members.

There is also an active proposal on the creation of a single WP:RUSSIA project. The proposal can be viewed at Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Russia#Proposal_for_overhaul_and_creation_of_a_single_WP:RUSSIA_project, and your comments and suggestions are welcomed and encouraged at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Russia/Proposal.

We all look forward to your continued support of WP:RUSSIA and any comments you may have on the proposal. --Russavia Dialogue Stalk me 04:35, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

You may also want to go easy on your edits in List of common misconceptions. For a start, you need sources for both that it is a common misconception and what is actually fact. If you go on this will be viewed as vandalism and you will be banned. --Echosmoke (talk) 22:06, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

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) 19:19, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for May 4[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Ikiryō, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Eidolon (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 08:51, 4 May 2014 (UTC)

'Unless you want to add a positive statement to his "reception" section, then this remains removed.'[edit]

Your decision procedure is invalid and inconsistent with the NPOV policy. You should self-revert. If you are unwilling to revert I will do it for you because the removal of that content is inconsistent with policy. Edits like that cannot be allowed to stand. My revert restored content that is consistent with policy. There will be many sources that discuss Mark Regev. Whether they are positive or negative is immaterial. They will be sampled over time by editors as the article grows. As that happens, if it is done properly, the coverage of the topic and the degree to which it complies with policy will increase. Removing reliably sourced content, as you have done, has exactly the opposite effect and is destructive. My interest in that article to date has been limited to ensuring that the existing content complies with policy and so I cleaned up it up. I am certainly not going to be blackmailed into doing your bidding. Sean.hoyland - talk 16:28, 25 July 2014 (UTC)
