Mejor en español[edit]

Siendo argentino ya podrías escribir en la wikipedia en español ¿no? ¿Cierto complejo de inferioridad ante lo sajón, quizá?

Para nada. Pasa que hay mucha mas gente que habla ingles que castellano, y un articulo en ingles es traducido a cualquier idioma mucho mas facilmente que si estuviera en castellano. Lo que si deberia hacer, y desgraciadamente no tengo tiempo, es traducir algunos buenos articulos en castellano al ingles. Mariano(t/c) 07:32, 4 January 2006 (UTC)
¡Menudo boludo!
Perdonen que me mete en lo que no me importa, no? Pero ademas al escribir en Ingles, Marcelo tiene la oportunidad de demostrarle a todo el mundo entero el gran talento que hay en la bella y amada Argentina. Eso es lo que me trae aqui principalmente y no a la wiki en Espanol, aunque ahi tengo una pagina y he escrito pero alli es mas para hacer amistades y mantenerme a fin con mis raices. A mi me encanta escribir de los Hispanios en general en la wiki en Ingles, asi la gente de, digamos Africa del Sur o Inglaterra nos conocen a los Hispanos tambien!

Mensaje de un wikipedista norteamericano[edit]

¡Saludos, compañero de Wikipedia! I'm coming to Argentina soon and wanted to see if any of my fellow Wikipedians were interested in meeting up, etc...I'm flying into BsAs on Jan. 25th and I don't know many people there, so if you'd be into talking/getting together, let me know. Feel free to leave a message on my user page...seeya around - Paul 22:33, 3 January 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for the reply! I have a good friend who is Slovenian (and his family came from Argentina...surname is Jenko, although I'll bet there are many Slovene-Argentines...kinda like when people say to me, "oh you're from New York, do you know Bill Jones?!?") Anyway, Slovenia is also high on my list of places to visit...enjoy your travels! Paul 17:43, 4 January 2006 (UTC)

River Plate[edit]

As the more-or-less "official Argentine" administrators, what should we do about the River Plate/Río de la Plata thing? A number of users are already reverting the moves. I pointed out to one of them that there'd been a consensus and got a less-than-nice answer. I personally don't care and prima facie would've left the name as it was, but I thought we should present a united front, so to speak. At this point I defer to you and the others who researched the matter. --Pablo D. Flores (Talk) 22:49, 6 January 2006 (UTC)

Las Leonas[edit]

Hi! Thanks for your support about the article. I still need to add some more info about the history of the team, and I will also add a "Players" section to describe some past players and possibly the current lineup. Maybe after that, I can write some articles about the most notable players like Oneto, Aymar, Masotta, Rognoni, and former coach Vigil. See you around! :-) ironcito 17:01, 11 January 2006 (UTC)

Saludos!![edit]

Hola Mariano! Thanks for the message on the wikiproject's talk page! I really appreciated your message.

It's my pleasure to help highlight Argentina's people and issues in a good light. Back in Puerto Rico, we think great about our Hispano hermanos and hermanas, whether they be from Mexico, Dominican Republic, Spain or Argentina. And living here in the Southwest USA for 16 years now, I'm fed up with the bad images Anglos see of us Hispanics on television.

Watching Telefe's noticias yesterday on satellite, I found out about Jose Luis Cabezas and thought to myself "Caramba, somebody ought to write about him!". Talking of which right now they are showing a vedette named Cecilia on a Mar del Plata beach. Somebody ought to write about her!!! lol..anyways, when I saw the article there already, I really felt I had to clean up some of it. Im sure the writer really didn't do it on purpose, but the way he or she wrote the article, it looked like he or she affirmed that the Buenos Aires police has connections to criminal activity, for example, thus putting the police there in a bad light. And trust me, the way we are seen by Anglos and people from other countries who don't know anything about Hispanic race in general, we don't need stuff like that.

So definitely it was my pleasure. Im thinking of writing about Cristina Perez. What do vos think?

Thanks for the comment and God bless you!

Sincerely yours, your amigo, Antonio Salta (y baila) Martin

Urgent help needed[edit]

Thanks for rv-ing the article Huemul Project. Have you seen the discussion page? The problem we are experiencing is that an anon user IP 200.xx.xx.xx keeps erasing all negative comments and warnings, both in the article and in the talk page. As you can see from the history log he has done it three times on the talk page. Two of them today and, from previous history, we know he will continue to do it. The previous history includes the article which he has been also partially erasing and re-writing in a very slanted way and with personal attacks to everyone that doesn't agree with him. In fact, by his behavior he has impeded the input by myself and other user. What do you suggest can be done? BTW, he has done it today after warnings and rvs of other 3 wiki admins.

Escuela Superior de Comercio Carlos Pellegrini[edit]

Soy bastante nuevo en la wikipedia y decidí ampliar un poquito el contenido que tiene sobre mi querido Pelle, pero vi que un par de horas después borraste absolutamente todo lo que agregué. Me gustaría saber tus razones, ya que aunque quizás cierta parte podría ser considerada como algo bastante irrelevante (todo el tema del Centro de Estudiantes, por ejemplo), el Pelle SÍ es una de las escuelas más prestigiosas de latinoamérica y creo que no es un dato menor. Todo esto con buena onda. :P

Saludos.

[15.02.05] - Gracias por leer mi comentario. Acerca de la parte de los alumnos destacados o algo así, yo no escribí nada de eso; y tampoco acerca del CBC. Quizá tenés razón acerca del prestigio de la escuela, pero el artículo del Nacional Buenos Aires dice lo mismo (one of the most prestigious high schools in Latin America) y no me parece que el Pelle tenga nada que envidiarle a nivel prestigio al Buenos Aires.

Gracias de nuevo por tener en cuenta las sugerencias!

Daniel Rabinovich[edit]

Please see WikiProject Stub sorting, especially Music biography for more specific stubs than just "musician". For instance, what instrument does he play? -Acjelen 17:01, 16 February 2006 (UTC)

In that case, we'll just have to leave him in musician stub. The information you left on my talk page is just the sort of facts that would be informative in an encyclopedia article and avoid later attempts at sorting his stub tag. -Acjelen 20:55, 16 February 2006 (UTC)

World Cup photo[edit]

Hello Mariano, FIFA World Cup is on FAC at the moment, and it has been commented that a lack of images is the biggest weakness. Finding a suitable free image is difficult, but looking at the image copyright tags, I see that {{PD-AR-Photo}} states that photographies first registered in Argentina over 25 years ago are public domain, which would make Argentinian photos of the 1978 World Cup public domain. Do you have any idea where I could find one? Oldelpaso 10:34, 26 February 2006 (UTC)

Re:Little Things[edit]

Hi there, need a little bit of feedback on the last point you wrote to me, like giving more context to the articles, please tell me exactly what u mean and examples. Thanks, cheers! Mazzaglia

  • By the way, didn't edit a single thing in the Buenos Aires Carnival article. Bye

[edit]

When I put initially both logos (Argentina and Brazil) had idea to establish balance. Argentina has the first name and Brazil the logo. Anyway, you inverted the logos and another guy just take out logos.

Perhaps it is the best way now (article without logos) regardsCloretti2 01:32, 2 March 2006 (UTC)

Image Tagging for Image:BocaGoingToJapanAgain.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:BocaGoingToJapanAgain.jpg. The image page currently doesn't specify who created the image, so the copyright status is therefore unclear. If you have not created the image yourself then you need to indicate why we have the right to use the image on Wikipedia (see copyright tagging below). If you have not created the image yourself then you should also specify where you found it, i.e., in most cases link to the website where you got it, and the terms of use for content from that page.

If the image also doesn't have a copyright tag then you must also add one. If you created/took the picture then you can use {{GFDL}} to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the image qualifies under Wikipedia's fair use guidelines, please read fair use, and then use a tag such as {{Non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair_use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use. If you want the image to be deleted, tag it as {{db-unksource}}.

If you have uploaded other images, please check that you have specified their source and copyright tagged them, too. You can find a list of image pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any unsourced and untagged images will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.

Military history of Argentina[edit]

Mariano: No estoy de acuerdo con tu actitud de revertir mis cambios:

1) ¿Cuál es el problema en agregar que Vernet era el gobernador argentino de Malvinas?

2) Las fuerzas que recuperaron las islas el 2 de abril estaban formadas mayormente por militares de "carrera" o profesionales. Sólo participaron algunos conscriptos del regimiento 25. Las únicas bajas de ese día fueron 2 cuadros de la Armada (un oficial y un suboficial) Obviamente después de la operación inicial, se llevaron unidades cuyos soldados eran conscriptos.

3) Que fueron "easily repelled" es algo totalmente discutible y no neutral. Te comento que el Brigadier Julian Thompson (comandante de la III Commando Brigade en las islas) escribió un libro del conflicto llamado "no picnic". Ni hablar de las pérdidas navales que sufrió la Task Force (en este punto, recomiendo leer el libro One hundred days del Almte. Sandy Woodward comandante de la Task Force). A ambos les haría mucha gracia leer semejante afirmación.

En conclusión, no me parece enciclopédico decir que "un ejército de conscriptos argentinos fueron repelidos fácilmente por profesionales británicos" Ningún libro serio argentino ni inglés sostiene este hipótesis tan simplificadora. Saludos.Clausewitz 00:36, 11 March 2006 (UTC)

Rock nacional[edit]

He there.

Hello.

'm not sure why you deleted the Rock nacional reference in the Argentine rock article, nor proposed to delet the redirect. Is it because the same might mean different things in different countries? The truth is that 'rock nacional' is a phrase very used in Argentina to refer to the Argentine rock.

It is also very used in Colombia to refer to the Colombian rock, in Chile to refer to the Chilean rock, in Peru to refer to the Peruvian rock, in Mexico to refer to the Mexican rock, and in Spain to refer to the Spanish rock.

If, the same expression is used in other countries for their own rock, perhaps a disambiguation page would be wiser than not having a Rock Nacional article.

Should we have a disambig page in national rock too, pointing to American, British, Australian, Canadian, New Zealander (etc) rock?

On the other hand, if the term is not used elsewere, then I don't see why the redirection must be removed.

It certainly is used.

Tagging gone wild[edit]

Agree with your comment on my comment on Diego. I was a little rude, but hey, wouldn't most people agree that tagging Diego as Croatian-Argentine is ridiculous? Maybe we should have a session with Mxcatania and agree to lay down some rules for that.

A simple rule would be: leave alone unless it cries to high heavens (as in your example). We are quite fond of using surname-related aliases like vasco or ruso or turco, but that's anecdotal. elpincha 13:45, 21 March 2006 (UTC)

¡Prócer! Le di un par de ampliaciones; cuando me agencie un paquete, hago una foto y completo el asunto. Después de haberlo hecho pedalear a Pablo hasta loma del culo en busca de un busto inexistente de Patoruzú, algo tengo que hacer para compensar. Un saludo, Taragüí @ 18:28, 31 March 2006 (UTC)

"Changüí" no me consta; "gurí" es seguro, y "pororó" también. "Yaguareté", "yacaré", "curiyú", "surubí", "patí" son ejemplos clásicos (hay muchísimos en la nomenclatura botánica y zoológica); "chipá", "tereré", "mbaipuí" son de orden gastronómico. ¿O te referías más bien a préstamos no incorporados al léxico estándar? Ahí, según cuan regionalista quieras ser, hay más que investigar. Contame cual era la idea. Un saludo, Taragüí @ 20:29, 3 April 2006 (UTC)
Estaba pensando en agrandar un poco Rioplatense Spanish#Native American languages' influence agregando un par de palabras de uso frecuente no ligadas a la botanica ni a la zoologia. Changüí esta en el diccionarrio de la RAE sin etimologia, pero como tiene distintos significados en distintos paises, a lo mejor no es americana. Encontre ademas una pagina que dice venir del termino futbolistico de principio de siglo pasado "chance to win". Uh, me diste ganas de comerme unos chipá, que bajon. Mariano(t/c) 06:42, 4 April 2006 (UTC)
Perdoná que haya pasado tanto tiempo; como no paso mucho por acá, y al no tener mensaje en mi página no me apareció el cartel, no vi hasta ahora la nota. Se me ocurren "bataraza", "catinga", "caracú", "capanga", "chamamé", "matete", "tape", "tapera"; capaz más limitadas a la Mesopotamia están "caté" (fino, elegante), "caú" (borracho), "apepú" (amargo, en sentido literal y figurado), "payé" (encanto, hechizo), "yurú" (boca, jeta), "yeré" (huidizo, traidor).

I would suggest deleting your comment. Im not and admin but your post just taught me another way of stelth vandalism. I don't think it is apopriat to list all stelthy ways of vandalism. anybody can axsess that page and learn how to too.

Re: Yorugua[edit]

Gracias por el saludo. Siempre es bueno ver a cualquier latinoamericano contribuyendo en Wikipedia, no solamente en temas generales, sino en mejorar un poquito la información sobre su propia tierra. Como bien decis, es una lastima que todavía que hay pocos artículos sobre mi pais, estén en su mayoria muy mal organizados y a veces simplemente no están, siendo muchos lo que uno consideraria "básico" dentro de la enciclopedia. Lamentablemente veo que esa es también la situación para los demás países, incluso a pesar de que la Wikipedia en español tenga muchas veces excelentes artículos (pero lamentablemente tampoco parece haber mucha gente dispuesta a traducirlos). En fin, un saludo, y ya nos estaremos viendo Jordevi 04:00, 6 April 2006 (UTC)

lista de palabras árabes[edit]

Well Mariano, there are a number of mistakes in this list. I have tried to correct some striking ones (albergue and azteca) but there are many others. One mistake is confusing mozárabe with arabic. Words can be of mozárabe origin but still have latin roots since Mozárabe is primarily a romance language. An example of this is "Jota" (the aragonese dance), which is also on the list. I had started making a list of arabic words on another page which will have to be merged with this one. But in my opinion the list is so long that it will be impossible to fit it into one article. For example, I found nearly 600 words stemming directly from andalusi arabic starting with A... It may be possible perhaps if we make columns, but I dont know how to do that. Apparently there are around 5000 words in the Spanish language of arabic origin. In any case, I would really like to participate in this attempt since I think (not sure) it has never been done before.--Guzman ramirez 11:32, 6 April 2006 (UTC)

Diana Conti[edit]

Che! Como estas vos el gran escritor Argentino?? I wanted to thank you for the kind words you put to me on your explanation about the Diana Conti fixing. I felt real good that you enjoyed the article.

I love Argentine television. And I was watching Noticias Telefe on my satellite yesterday when I heard about her new project to battle sexual harrassment in Argentina. Sexual Harrassment sadly takes place in all parts of the world but you know, I thought what a magnificent woman!!! She is fighting sexual harrassment, knowing that across Latin America that is generally still a very taboo subject, even in my own Puerto Rico. She is the type of person that makes me proud of being Latin American and Hispanic.

Bueno, gracias y Dios te bendiga!

Argentina[edit]

Hi Mariano. No problemo. I am interested in geography, so from time to time I create a few articles about various places worldwide. Argentina, currently, needs I think much more coverage on its geographical topics, like lakes, rivers or glaciers. Short stubs at the start will be good I think, maybe you can help. Btw. I see your surname is probably "Cecowski". Are you of Polish ancestry? I am ethnic Polish, so I am asking :). P.S. Hope the World Cup will be better for you this time, than in the 2002. Take care. - Darwinek 13:43, 11 April 2006 (UTC)

Hello again. I browsed the Spanish wiki and my atlas and I think these lakes could be translated. es:Lago Puelo, main landmark of Lago Puelo National Park; es:Lago Fagnano, big lake in Tierra del Fuego; and finally es:Lago Buenos Aires/General Carrera, even bigger lake in Chile and Argentina. Translations will be very much appreciated :). - Darwinek 15:52, 11 April 2006 (UTC)
Your translations are great. Thank you. Important missing topics include also es:Río Limay in Argentina and es:Lago Villarrica in Chile. I do not have any list of important geographical features of Argentina. My reference is usually my Czech atlas which is much detailed. When you see there a lake big as a cow on the map, you think it is quite important to have it also here on Wikipedia :). - Darwinek 20:17, 11 April 2006 (UTC)
Good work with the recent translations and creations, such as Neuquen River. I think es:Lago Espejo in Neuquen Province is worth translating. Worth creating is I think another big lake shared by Argentina and Chile (same situation as with the General Carrera/Buenos Aires Lake). I am talking about Lake San Martin/O'Higgins [2]. Can you create at least little stub about it? Thank you. ;) -- Darwinek 10:27, 12 April 2006 (UTC)
Thank you, sweet articles. Take care and happy easter! -- Darwinek 09:35, 14 April 2006 (UTC)
I created that sweet stub in September 2005, a loong time ago. The text is de facto copied from PD NASA site, from which I have also took the photo. But I agree, Southern Ice Field should be created too. It should be fair like coverage of River Plate/Boca Juniors teams :D. -- Darwinek 11:03, 14 April 2006 (UTC)

Rules in Copa Libertadores[edit]

Yo había borrado la parte que dice que el Once Caldas habría sido eliminado en segunda ronda y habría perdido la final de haberse utilizado la regla del gol de visitante. Esta afirmación carece de fundamento, dado que asume que los resultados de los partidos se hubiesen jugado de igual manera y hubiesen tenido los mismos resultados con esta nueva regla, lo cual es verdaderamente estúpido. Cuando esta regla aplica, los equipos evidentemente trabajan para utilizarla a su favor (o evitar que juegue en su contra). Por ejemplo, en el juego reciente de Villareal vs. Inter, el equipo español tenía presente que un 1-0 le bastaba para pasar a la siguiente ronda. Si la regla de gol de visitante no aplicara, ¿no creerías que el Villareal hubiese trabajado para vencer a su oponente por un mínimo de dos goles? Por lo tanto, en mi opinión esta frase debe ser borrada, o debería añadirse una clarificación que vaya en la dirección que anoto más arrriba. Un saludo. 21:26, 12 April 2006 (UTC)

Argentine Antarctica Infboxes[edit]

Iv'e visited the pages of the Argentine Antarctica's bases, but i found most red dots are in the "wrong place" [3] (or at least Jubany on the Antarctic Penninsula seems wrong to me, on the other side Orcadas seems pretty well). I didn't want to revert because i think it is unkind and looks like an overreaction to me, so i'm writin you here, will you hate me if I change some of the dots to a possition more like the map in the link? -- Argentino 21:05, 25 April 2006 (UTC)

Boca Juniors template + red dot[edit]

I'll make a gold-and-blue heart, but i can't work with the red dot because i dont have Opera, nor know much about those templates.--Argentino 20:55, 26 April 2006 (UTC)

Hello
How are you? Everything OK?
I have been investigating and even experimenting (look) with this superimpose thing, and have finnaly understanded something about it: when we determinate the coordiate of the location of the red dot, we don't write it with fractions, but with distances, so if in an image that has 300px width the red dot is in x=150, it will be in the middle, but if the width changes and the "x" parameter doesn't, let's say, to width 200, the red dot will moove to 3/4 from the right. What I think is that the configuration of Opera made the image just a bit more little but kept the distance parameters. I did as you proposed, and restored the IE distances.
Cualquier cosa "llamame". --Argentino (talk/cont.) 23:14, 1 May 2006 (UTC)


Redundancy or Idiocy?[edit]

May I ask why, if there are two lists of gay people, one for writers and one more general, it is considered in your little tiny mind a REDUNDANCY to have a person in BOTH lists?? I want a detailed and rational explanation.

Tantris 01:58, 3 May 2006 (UTC)


    • Now, if you consider Mujica Laínez to be an extremely important figure for the Gay community, so that it [sic] should also be listed in the 'Lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender people' category, I would understand it, but I don't think that's the case.


Disabuse yourself, I DO consider MML an extremely important firgure for the Gay community, although he is not at all well-known to that community, NOR WILL HE EVER BE, if self-apointed censors of lists keep him out of the more popular-oriented ones by their own arbitrary fiat.

Why is it redundant, and how does it hurt the cause of information, to place him in as many lists as possible?? And, at the risk of sounding "furious", just who precisely are you to decide what is or isn't redundant? I wrote the article, and I DON'T have the right to put him in whichever lists I please?? Why precisely is YOUR understanding needed?

MML is one of two or three world-famous gay writers in the Spanish-speaking world and perhaps the only one from Latin America. It is interesting though, that, although he is the only Argentine writer ever to win the Pulitzer Prize, he is not mentioned at all in The Gay and Lesbian Literary Heritage (Claude Summers, Ed.) New York, Routledge; (2 edition) 2002.

Obviously there is some fault in the chain of information somewhere and your ideas about "redundancy" are not helping. Also, if you don't want people to react with annoyance, don't obliterate their work as if you were Censor of the Universe. Show some class.

I have been trying to sort out this nomination for deletion of this article, unfortunately the old nomination of last year was used. At first I thought it was new and written up at the wrong place, so I moved it and listed it correctly. I now realise that this old nomination cannot proceed and a new one at the correct name Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/María Martha Fernández will be needed and it will need a new entry on the relevant day's AfD page (click here to make new entry to the day's AFD page). As it was never correctly listed I have closed the original part of Wikipedia:Votes for deletion/María Martha Fernández and am informing those of you who have voted on the old page for your information and action.

Quilmes v River Plate[edit]

Mariano, how is it going?? Just a little error in the table. For the moment, according to ESPN Soccernet and Elmarcador, the result of Quilmes v River Plate has not been finalised. This is because the match was suspended after 67 minutes when River were leading 3-1. Just thought I would let you know.

See you later man!!! Cs-wolves 18:34, 15 May 2006 (UTC)

Olimpia or Player of the Year?[edit]

Hi Mariano, for a while I've been wanting to create an article for Argentine Footballer of the Year based on this information I found. I don't know what article title to use though, is it better to use the official award name (Olimpia de Plata for football players) or just "Argentine Footballer of the Year"??. I prefer the latter since there are many awards with that notation (including the Paraguayan Footballer of the Year article I created ;-) ) but I want a second opinion before starting the article. Saludos. Bruno18 20:29, 15 May 2006 (UTC)

Yeah, I just noticed that you guys, for some strange reason, award foreign players in your league (Salas, Chilarvert) and players playing outside of Argentina. Anyway, I'll start the article tomorrow probably and I'll use the title Player of the Year of Argentina as you suggested. In any case, we can always move the article or use redirects if we change our minds about the title of the article. Saludos. Bruno18 14:42, 16 May 2006 (UTC)
Ok, I just finished the article (that was quick!): Player of the Year of Argentina. The introduction needs to be polished in my opinion (it's sort of incomplete, the introduction I did is just a 'rough draft') but I'll let you do that ;) . Ok, that's it for now, hablamos después. Chau. Bruno18 16:41, 16 May 2006 (UTC)

Goal of the Century[edit]

You "moved WC Goal of the Century to Goal of the Century: world award more important than the German)". Senor Maradona has just received 18,062 votes, that is hardly impressive for a world award, as 2nd league games draw bigger crowds. The German Awards are voted monthly and annually, with a much bigger audience participation. The choice of goals is also much bigger, being not limited to (but also including) the WC tournaments which takes place only every 4 years. That the FIFA has copied the idea, 30 years after it was started by the ARD, and a few years after the German "goal of the century" was elected, just shows what is the more significant award.

You better move it to "FIFA Goal of the Century", and return the disamb. page to the neutral "Goal of the Century" without making statements that are very close to "This user is proud to be Argentine" POV pushing. --Matthead 10:45, 19 May 2006 (UTC)

VandalProof 1.2 Now Available[edit]

Vandalprooflock.jpg

After a lenghty, but much-needed Wikibreak, I'm happy to announce that version 1.2 of VandalProof is now available for download! Beyond fixing some of the most obnoxious bugs, like the persistent crash on start-up that many have experienced, version 1.2 also offers a wide variety of new features, including a stub-sorter, a global user whitelist and blacklist, navigational controls, and greater customization. You can find a full list of the new features here. While I believe this release to be a significant improvement over the last, it's nonetheless nowhere near the end of the line for VandalProof. Thanks to Rob Church, I now have an account on test.wikipedia.org with SysOp rights and have already been hard at work incorporating administrative tools into VandalProof, which I plan to make available in the near future. An example of one such SysOp tool that I'm working on incorporating is my simple history merge tool, which simplifies the process of performing history merges from one article into another. Anyway, if you haven't already, I'd encourage you to download and install version 1.2 and take it out for a test-drive. As always, your suggestions for improvement are always appreciated, and I hope that you will find this new version useful. Happy editing! --AmiDaniel (talk) 02:56, 21 May 2006 (UTC)

Invasion of Argentina[edit]

Why are you editing out any attempt to put this in a global context? Surely readers need to reflect upon the way the Napoleonic Wars had repercussions all over the world. The abortive attempt at world dominion by Napoleon resulted in a fundamental re-alignment of world power and, in the case of South America, the possibility of independence. Ignoring the global context obscures the reason why the British transported, financed and supported the South American liberators in the early nineteenth century - it was to undermine Franco-Spanish power during a war.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by 86.11.126.123 (talkcontribs) .

Maradona[edit]

You removed references of Maradona being considered one of the best footballer, claiming that he was considered so only by his own fans. I don't know what did you mean by own fans, but the references were perfectly valid. I restored them. Mariano(t/c) 07:44, 31 May 2006 (UTC)

Hi, Marianocecowski. My mistake. The text I removed actually used to say: "He is regarded as one of the greatest footballers of all time and, indeed, the greatest by the majority of fans.". Well... anyone is considered the greatest by his fans. So, the phrase didn't add much too the discussion. I removed the references along with the text, but that was not necessary. I am sorry. Mentioning in the article that he is widely regarded as one of the greatest ever is surely something I agree with.
By the way, someone mentioned on the the talk page that the expression of all times has no meaning in English. I don't know english good enough to have an opinion on that. Would you like to help? Mayer "of the greatest footballers ever" would work better. Regards, --Abu Badali 16:48, 31 May 2006 (UTC)

Routes in Argentina[edit]

I noticed your changes to Route 40 (Argentina) and others. If the official name is "Ruta Nacional 40", perhaps we should consider moving them? I noticed Ruta Nacional 40 (Argentina) on the Spanish wiki. How are they typically referred to in English? If it is called "National Route 40" in English, perhaps "National Route XX (Argentina)" would be correct? Otherwise, maybe we'd use the Spanish title, I don't really know. — Jun. 3, '06 [04:59] <freak|talk>

Thank you for your reply. I think the most important question is whether to use the official Spanish name, or a literal translation of it, or whatever the de facto naming convention is for English speakers. It's a more complex question the disputes involving highways in the United States. — Jun. 5, '06 [07:03] <freak|talk>

Policia Bonaerense[edit]

Your deletion of Police Service of Buenos Aires is extremely irritating and uncivil.

Firsly, the page was longer than that for the now-reverted Policia Bonaerense, so in your apparent deletion of the page you deleted information which i spent time on, which is now lost.

Secondly, if you would yourself care to look at Wikipedia:Naming conventions (common names), you will notice that your deletion was not justified. "Policia Bonaerense" is not English, and this is the ENGLISH wikipedia (see Wikipedia:Naming conventions (use English)). (Furthermore English-speaking users have no accents on their keyboards, so cannot type in Policia Bonaerense to search for it.) Since the service name is NOT Policia Bonaerense, but Policia de la Provincia de Bunoes Aires, the title is innapropriate anyway. For institutions, the actual proper name is used.

Furthermore your use of the bizzare phrase "Police of the Buenos Aires Province", on the Buenos Aires Province page, shows you don't even have a good enough grasp of English to be rephrasing the edits of others.

I notice that you have a tendency towards antisocial and destructive editing (seen previously e.g. with your attempts to delete academic versions of history in the article on Misiones). I hope this stops now.

N-edits 16:50, 6 June 2006 (UTC)

I am pleased that you still have the text of my edit. I am now a little confused how you retrieved it and how you deleted the other article etc., so perhaps I am being to hasty in saying your editing was anti-social.
As for the name, the Rio de la Plata article is irrelevant: It is a place, not an institution. Can you imagine if all foreign countries' institutions names were in the foreign language? That would be bizzare. For places, however, it is much more reasonable.
The fact that there are articles still titled in Spanish is irrelevant, this is English wikipedia, and they should not be. I refer again to the policy page Wikipedia:Naming conventions (use English)), which takes precedence over the Rio de la Plata Talk page.
As for the comment "you Copy Edited the content of the article instead of moving it, what produced a disrupt of the article's history", I am afraid I don't know how to move it, I assumed it was done by copy editing. I am unaware of any other method, although i'll try to find out.
As for the exact English title:
  • "Police Service of the Province of Buenos Aires" seems to me a perfect translation.
  • "Police of the Buenos Aires Province" is wrong. "The Buenos Aires Province" is absolutely not English, the use of the definite article is conspicuously incorrect.
  • "Buenos Aires Province" could be used instead of "Province of Buenos Aires", but the nuance isn't impressive. (For instance, I believe Canadian Provinces use "Province of"). However "Buenos Aires Province Police" is no good, it should in fact be "Buenos Aires Provincial Police", which would i think be departing from the original Spanish too far?
  • "Police of the Province of Buenos Aires" would be just possible, but it sounds unnatural as an institutional title, and I beleive "police service" would be the correct translation: The English word "police" is not used in exactly the same way as "policia" in Spanish. In cases such as this, "police service" is the best translation (this translation should be found dictionaries- any big dictionary, and probably pocket ones too).
  • The only other possible alternative I can see is "Province of Buenos Aires Police" which also sounds wrong to an English ear (because of the role of the "of" in a subordinate part, and the subordination of "Province of" to "Police").
(Incidentally I am sure that I am, in fact, a native English speaker.)
N-edits 15:43, 7 June 2006 (UTC)

Having not heard otherwise, I have gone ahead and moved the page, (properly "moved" as i am supposed to do!). I have used "Buenos Aires Provincial Police" in deference to your suggestions. N-edits 16:39, 27 June 2006 (UTC)

Vandalism?[edit]

Just wanted to let you know that I, for one, thought your proposal about World Cup squad lists was a good one (if I understand it). You seem to have pulled the plug on it, which I guess is understandable given that the WC has actually started now. Too bad. Anyway, I commented on the Wikiproject Football page. Congrats on the win today -- I didn't see the game, but I heard they looked really phenomenal against a tricky opponent. - PhilipR 06:30, 11 June 2006 (UTC)

Argentina and Brazil Football Rivalry[edit]

I did not mean to insult you I was just reading the article and it seemed as if all the incidents were refuting Brazil's victories. Thank you for your patience as I learn to master Wikipeida! KCuenca 19:19, 14 June 2006 (UTC)

Es cierto que falta la fuente, pero es tan obvio. Es todo lo que puedo decirte, lamentablemente la borraron antes de que tengamos la posibilidad de restaurar imágenes, sino la hubiesemos podido recuperar. Barcex 08:59, 19 June 2006 (UTC)

Las fotos se pueden recuperar desde el viernes pasado en todas las Wikipedias y en Commons. Es una funcionalidad nueva que agregaron al Mediawiki, y que como es el mismo que está instalado en todas supuestamente funciona en todas. Saludos. Barcex 17:46, 19 June 2006 (UTC)

Hi[edit]

You feel maybe irritated, because of my european goals adding, but we need a system, because Henry and Shearer, etc. has all goals. If you want illustrate career then you need all matches and goals to add. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Alfmaster (talkcontribs) (moved from User talk:Marianocecowski/Archive02)

"Photoshopped Image"[edit]

I saw the recent edit you did to the Ollanta Humala article adding that it was a photoshopped image. [4] Do you have a source for that? I'll add Maradona's quote stating that it was not a political move to the article to clarify his position but it is true that he is a personal friend of Chavez and during the Mar de La Plata Summit of the Americas he was with Chavez in a similar fashion wearing a t-shirt that read "International War Criminal" with President Bush's face on it.--Jersey Devil 01:21, 22 June 2006 (UTC)

Gibraltar[edit]

Hi Mariano!!

Could you please have a look at the talk page and history of the article on Gibraltar. Over the past few months a number of users, including myself, have been in conflict with user:Gibnews. We feel he has taken over the page as his pet project and has imposed a NPOV pro-Gibraltarian point of view. I feel his attitude and utter refusal to acheive any form of consensus is contrary to the rules of wikipedia. He accuses everyone of Spanish propaganda even on issues which are not directly related to the Anglo-Spanish dispute over Gibraltar and reverts pretty much everything which is not written by himself. Although I am not Spanish, I sometimes wonder if I may be slightly biased towards the Spanish perspective. I do not however believe that Gibraltar should be Spanish and I try to remain as neutral as possible. I do not have a problem with Gibnew's views. I simply do not approve of his way of discarding other people's sources, opinions etc... You should perhaps consult other users for their opinions such as user:ecemaml and user:asterion.

That is why I ask you, as an uninterested party, to mediate or atleast give your perspective on this issue.

Please look at the talk page over the past few months. Conflict with user Gibnews seems to go a long way back.

Thankyou very much for your help. We would really appreciate it. There is nothing worse that when articles are hijacked by individuals with political agendas. --Burgas00 13:54, 22 June 2006 (UTC)

Already tried compromise:-). Doesnt work in this case. Have a look at the talk page and archived discussions.--Burgas00 16:19, 22 June 2006 (UTC)

Supposed vandalism - Balcarce[edit]

You left a message on my talk page, but I would suggest you verify your info before junmping to conclusions and accusing me of vandalism on your page about Balcarce. I simply removed a dead link you had on the page, it was in no way vandalism. I would suggest testing your page and verifying your errors rather than claiming vandalism. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Trassalg (talkcontribs)

Argentina-sport-stub[edit]

A 3 to 1 opinion in favor of deletion, and you as the sole opponent decide to log it as no consensus? That's a bit self-centered, wouldn't you say? I've relisted and I expect that this time you will allow someone more neutral than you to decide what constitutes a consensus. Caerwine Caerwhine

The movement to Argentina-sport-bio-stub was taking advantage of a redirect that another user had created and that in the event that Argentina-sport-stub be kept would likely be also kept as a redirect with possibilities, and would require an SFD of its own to get rid of even if it weren't. As such, the movement didn't interfere with the SFD on Argentina-sport-stub at all. Caerwine Caerwhine 14:31, 25 June 2006 (UTC)

You have no right to revert a regiestered users talk page THAT is concidered Vandalism on its own.[edit]

Changes in national team scores[edit]

Hi Mariano, could you check User:Simon nelson(contributions). He is been updating scores in different team and player pages. I left a message in his page with no answer. I asked him to give me his reference for all those updates. Thanks. Gadig 21:29, 26 June 2006 (UTC)

Squad templates and DRY, redux[edit]

Mariano, Just wanted to let you know that I used our earlier discussion about squad templates as an example on Wikipedia:Village pump (technical)#Don't repeat yourself / MediaWiki. If you have opinions on what I'm suggesting, feel free to chime in. Cheers, PhilipR 22:02, 26 June 2006 (UTC)
