You asked for some citations on the claim about British and American submarine atrocities; I've was looking into this and it seems to be true. I've been adding the information to the relevant pages. I've left the Eck page alone so far; it's very apologist in its tone, but I'm not in the mood to tackle it just now. Xyl 54 (talk) 17:18, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of John Emsley[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on John Emsley requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for biographies.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you.

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Redaktor Wikipedia 600px.png

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, will be commencing a two-month trial at approximately 23:00, 2010 June 15 (UTC).

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under flagged protection. Flagged protection is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 03:08, 16 June 2010 (UTC)

A gift for the defender of Wikipedia![edit]

Плакат "Единая Россия - партия жуликов и воров".png For your relentless dedication to improving Wikipedia
Hello, I've noticed all the hard work you've done to keep many articles (such as article about Putin and similar ones) as encyclopedic and as neutral as possible (even if it meant you had to battle with many "agenda pushers" throughout your editing history) so I believe you deserve some recognition for that ;-) Hopefully you won't mind a custom image! Rndomuser (talk) 04:05, 3 October 2012 (UTC)

Thanks, you're most kind! Malick78 (talk) 21:14, 3 October 2012 (UTC)

disfix[edit]

Sorry, but you need a ref, or at least an example, that this is common, or found in English. I can't think of any examples, anyway, and sources say these are rare. — kwami (talk) 22:29, 29 December 2012 (UTC)

The Polish examples don't look like disfixation. I just checked Swan (2002) and a couple other sources, and all show a null suffix for the gen.pl. For example, mysz does not become *my in the gen.pl. — kwami (talk) 03:09, 30 December 2012 (UTC)

putin mafia state after 2010[edit]

you cannot just revert evrything i do on my edits on the putin article, you do not own the article! and you got to keep your "mafia state" but that term was not used until 1 december 2010 so it must be noted as such Peterzor (talk) 15:18, 12 April 2013 (UTC)

  • You may notice that no one else is defending your edits or reinstating them. That's a strong hint that others disagree with them. In particular, your last edit regarding when the term appeared with unnecessarily detailed for the intro, and the grammar was wrong. Hence I removed it. It was also your own OR (where did you get the info that the term wasn't used before 2010?).Malick78 (talk) 18:10, 12 April 2013 (UTC)

i realized that you were right the whole time[edit]

after getting some further information about the subject i realise that "mafia state" is not just a western media term but it seems very many russian agree with it, so you were right the whole time and please note that this should not come as a "surprise" because i never was a putin supporter just merely seeing things as they are and seeing beyond the thinking of the media Peterzor (talk) 16:08, 18 April 2013 (UTC)

  • Hey, we all live and learn and all of us get a bit carried away sometimes. Take care, Malick78 (talk) 17:46, 18 April 2013 (UTC)

what do you mean with "get a bit carried away sometimes"? i did not "get a bit carried away sometimes" Peterzor (talk) 19:19, 18 April 2013 (UTC)

  • You were absolutely adamant that 'mafia state' was not a fair term to use when describing Putin's Russia, but above you seem to have said that it is more widely used than you thought. I didn't mean to offend.Malick78 (talk) 20:22, 18 April 2013 (UTC)
Good response i guess people can do mistakes sometimes Peterzor (talk) 08:50, 19 April 2013 (UTC)
I totally retract my remarks and statements here! you tricked me into beliving some nonsense, after even further research i see there is no single russian (pro and against putin) source found anywhere nor so many russians agreeing with that and even such russian sources exist they are do not comply with wikipedia policy Peterzor (talk) 17:18, 23 May 2013 (UTC)

Duumvirate[edit]

Hello. A while back, you reverted an anonymous user's edit, but that user was in fact correct, and I have basically reverted you. It's a common misnomer to call the rook a "castle". The article as you reverted it to was not in accord with chess terminology.--Jasper Deng (talk) 03:40, 14 June 2013 (UTC)

  • Hi, while I realise chess players may prefer (somewhat pretentiously) to say only 'rook', it's also true that 'castle' is used by a large amount of ordinary players and in my view is therefore not wrong. Where do you think the term castling comes from, after all? It seems, from the 'wrong' term for the piece? :) Malick78 (talk) 13:59, 14 June 2013 (UTC)
"Castle" is used by few players, and it's generally those who are just learning the game. The etymology is not explained in the castling article, but 1 - foreign languages tend to base their term for the move off their word for "rook", and English is an exception, 2 - the term seems to refer more to the formation of a fortress-like setup rather than the involvement of the castle-shaped piece.
In any case, the piece is formally a rook, and Wikipedia strives to be formal.--Jasper Deng (talk) 18:09, 14 June 2013 (UTC)
Actually, Wikipedia tries to be accessible so the most commonly used term is often encouraged: in our case, we have two commonly used terms - and, if you'd care to google the terms chess+rook and chess+castle, as I just did, you'll find that the latter gets 7 times more hits. That's quite a difference. Even if you add "+knight" to make sure chess pages are hit, you still get over double the number for 'castle'. So, in my view, self-proclaimed chess aficionados' preference for 'rook' is a mere snobbery. Amateur players are happy to say 'castle' but that certainly doesn't mean that 'castle' is any worse. (Btw, are you American? Perhaps usage differs regionally?) I added 'castle' to the page because (if I recall correctly) someone had removed it - which struck me as being unnecessarily pretentious.
As for your theory of the etymological root of 'castling', I'm almost certain your suggestion is wrong but etymonline.com gives us no help with it. As a professional linguist I'd say, however, that the simplest solution is most likely - that it's all because the 'castle' is involved. That's why in Russian it's "rokirovka", not a word based on 'zamok' - their word for castle, which would be the case if the move was being named after 'making a defensive castle-like structure'. Malick78 (talk) 18:56, 14 June 2013 (UTC)
No. Not only is "castle" not a common term among experienced players (which I am), it's not common enough to justify the use of this misspelling. I might consider myself to have a conflict of interest, being a player, but in my opinion it's unprofessional to call the piece a "castle" when its proper name is a rook (no, amateurs tend to use the word rook, only absolute beginners tend to use "castle"). I also strongly disagree with your conclusion about its etymology because it makes no sense in the context of the way the game is played. The rook is not changed, except by position, when castling occurs - other than being more centralized, it's not given anything special. On the other hand, the king enjoys a fortification of pawns, which is often critical in professional games.
I also believe that it's better to encourage the use of the proper term, rather than the improper one.--Jasper Deng (talk) 19:02, 14 June 2013 (UTC)
Well, let's agree to disagree :) I won't undo your edit, but really, as the grandson of a man who represented his county in British chess competitions, I was taught to say 'rook' and 'castle'. At chess club at school, 'castle' was acceptable. And no one ever corrected me in regional competitions when I entered them as a kid. 'Castle' is acceptable amongst many people and the idea that it's "incorrect" is mere snobbery, IMHO :)
As for etymology, the fact that the king gains from interaction with the 'castle' is reason enough to name the move after the piece involved. Etymology is frequently very simple (I'm an expert on English and Slavonic etymology, I'll humbly add ;) ), and I fear you're overthinking things. Regards, Malick78 (talk) 19:22, 14 June 2013 (UTC)

Revert[edit]

Why did you destroy my work in the Western betrayal article? If the grammar is bad, improve it. If it is not neutral, then talk to Polish historian Piotr Zychowicz. Tymek (talk) 21:30, 15 June 2013 (UTC)

  • You edited a history article by giving a ref to an 'alternative history novel'. Your edit was then deleted by 2 other editors, one of whom I know is sympathetic to your POV. Your ref was appallingly bad for an encyclopaedia. Sorry.Malick78 (talk) 12:19, 16 June 2013 (UTC)

Deletion[edit]

Why did you delete my entry of "William Dobbie" on the "Plymouth Brethren" page? It was already noted on Dobbie's Wikipedia page that he adhered to Plymouth Brethren principles. I didn't put that in his bio. So, there's no reason to delete Dobbie's name from the "Plymouth Brethren" page. Canihaveacookie (Talk), October 6, 2013, 18:57 (UTC)

  • You didn't include a ref and there wasn't one in Dobbie's article. I explained this in the edit summary. Malick78 (talk) 19:01, 6 October 2013 (UTC)

Putin Forbes ranking[edit]

A little over 2 weeks ago, you removed the Forbes ranking from Putin's article, and I assume an IP isn't happy with that. See WP:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents#forbes and WP:NOTNEWS. NFLisAwesome (ZappaOMati's alternate account) 20:45, 18 April 2014 (UTC)
