Welcome![edit]

Hello, Martarius, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are some pages that you might find helpful:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your name and the date. If you need help, check out Wikipedia:Questions, ask me on my talk page, or ask your question and then place {{helpme}} before the question on your talk page. Again, welcome!  Tim Vickers 14:40, 29 July 2007 (UTC)

Chipstead[edit]

I noticed with interest your link to Chipstead RFC. I moved it though into the ref as I added encyclopedic knowledge that it has been open since 1960. Otherwise the link would be deleted as wikipedia is not really a directory. Hope that's OK. If you live in the area a photo would really enhance the page. SuzanneKn 17:53, 30 August 2007 (UTC)

Yeah that's fine with me, because external links sometimes have information relevant to their subjects. (Martin Banting 18:03, 30 August 2007 (UTC))

Treorchy[edit]

Hi, thanks for your work on the Treorchy page. I'm not too much of a fan of the Trivia heading, just like the person who posted the warning. Do you think we could somehow bring the Trivia notes (which I do think are valid) under Entertainment or maybe change it to Cultural references or something. I also don't like the placement of the photo, it would look far better towards the top of the page, so people see it straight away when they enter the article. What are you thoughts?--FruitMonkey 10:48, 1 September 2007 (UTC)

Yes, especially when they just have one piece of information {Martin B 10:58, 1 September 2007 (UTC))

Album genre categories[edit]

Hi there. I see you're adding a bunch of albums to Category:Alternative rock albums. Please see the note at that category that says that albums should not generally be added to the category directly. Have a nice day. --PEJL 15:52, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

Yeah I've been putting in albums in that category when the genre is Alternative rock according to their infoboxes (Martin B 15:54, 6 September 2007 (UTC))
I've now reverted most of these. See also WP:ALBUM#Categories for more info on how the categories for albums work. --PEJL 16:06, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

Welcome to The Simpsons WikiProject[edit]

Hello, thank you for becoming a member of The Simpsons WikiProject. The Project has been around for over a year and has seen many Simpsons related articles improved exponentially. The members of the Project have achieved many successes, including getting an an entire season of The Simpsons promoted to Featured topic status as well as getting many articles promoted to Featured article and Good article status. For a full list of Project accomplishments, see this page. There are currently several drives within the project, including a drive to improve the episodes of season 1 and a drive to improve the core articles of the project. If you would like to work on a page and need help, please see our guide to sources or the style guide. If you require any further assistance, please leave a message on the project talk page, or ask myself or Gran2. Once again, thank you for joining the project, and happy editing.

Important: We're currently going through a membership reconfirmation, so you should probably go here and add your name. -- Scorpion0422 16:53, 3 October 2007 (UTC)

The Beach Boys[edit]

Why have you removed The Beach Boys from the category:American rock music groups? MookieZ 18:40, 5 October 2007 (UTC)

Because it's in one of it's subcategories (Martin B 18:47, 5 October 2007 (UTC))
That is a template that is in the subcategory... I think it was better the other way. MookieZ 18:57, 5 October 2007 (UTC)

Invitation to join WP:FG[edit]

Family Guy TV icon.png Hello Martarius, thank you for your contributions on articles related to Family Guy. I'd like to invite you to become a part of Wikipedia:WikiProject Family Guy, a WikiProject aimed at improving the quality of Family Guy articles on Wikipedia.

If you would like to participate, please visit the project page for more information. Thanks!

I have some simple guidelines for default Class/Importance ratings for {{WikiProject Family Guy}} under WP:FGassess. If you don't want to join, that's fine. Please feel free to continue contributing to Family Guy articles! / edg 20:01, 22 December 2007 (UTC)

A potential chat session with Bill Oakley[edit]

We at the Simpsons WikiProject have managed to get into contact with the one and only Bill Oakley (who showran The Simpsons from season 7 to 8) and he has agreed to send us some images and to do an IRC chat in the future with us so that we can ask questions about things that we can use in articles. The transcript of this chat will hopefully be posted at NoHomers.net, which I think will be a good enough sorce. Failing that, we'll try The Simpsons Archive. Every member is more than welcome to take part, which will be held at our #wpsimpsons channel. Because not everyone will be able to make the chat, a page has been made where any member can post questions that can be asked. Remember, no fan questions, and due to a lack of time, try to limit it to ones that will help improve an article. That page is here. If you have any questions, ask myself, Xihix (who is the one in contact with him) or post it at WT:DOH, which is where any future updates will be posted. -- Scorpion0422 02:58, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

Large Marge[edit]

Do you have a source for the "alternate storyline" in the production section of Large Marge?

No, especially because I did not type in that information, I just moved it out of the trivia section into a section of its own. Martarius (talk) 09:40, 21 May 2008 (UTC)

The Bourne Supremacy (film)[edit]

Don't you think the Differences from the novel section in its present form constitutes original research since no reliable sources have been provided for this section? Otolemur crassicaudatus (talk) 10:44, 21 May 2008 (UTC)

Yes, and I think that section is fancruft. Martarius (talk) 10:54, 21 May 2008 (UTC)

Hey. Please see the "Usage" section on Template:Talkheader. This template is not meant for all talk pages, only for talk pages where it is needed. Thanks, Prolog (talk) 05:27, 21 August 2008 (UTC)

Oxford Wikimania 2010 and Wikimedia UK v2.0 Notice[edit]

Hi,

As a regularly contributing UK Wikipedian, we were wondering if you wanted to contribute to the Oxford bid to host the 2010 Wikimania conference. Please see here for details of how to get involved, we need all the help we can get if we are to put in a compelling bid.

We are also in the process of forming a new UK Wikimedia chapter to replace the soon to be folded old one. If you are interested in helping shape our plans, showing your support or becoming a future member or board member, please head over to the Wikimedia UK v2.0 page and let us know. We plan on holding an election in the next month to find the initial board, who will oversee the process of founding the company and accepting membership applications. They will then call an AGM to formally elect a new board who after obtaining charitable status will start the fund raising, promotion and active support for the UK Wikimedian community for which the chapter is being founded.

You may also wish to attend the next London meet-up at which both of these issues will be discussed. If you can't attend this meetup, you may want to watch Wikipedia:Meetup, for updates on future meets.

We look forward to hearing from you soon, and we send our apologies for this automated intrusion onto your talk page!

Combining templates[edit]

I note you combined templates on Adult contemporary music, a page with only two cleanup templates! As far as I can see, the blurb on WP:TMC says "if too many tags are piled at the top of an article, the article starts being eclipsed by the tags". Template:articleissues itself does not offer any guidance, but its example has 6 templates. Do you really consider 2 tags could be "piled up" and "too many", or is there other advice elsewhere? Personally I would consider 2 too few to consolidate, indeed I have seen people separate a Template:Tlx when removing an issue so that only 2 remain. I would only combine 3 or more.

Note I'm not planning on reverting or asking you to revert, although I expect someone else may; I'm just surprised that this was done and wondering about your rationale.

Thanks in advance for your views on this, --Rogerb67 (talk) 01:04, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

I think if an article has two tags at the top, they can be combined or not. But If the article is very long than the templates really need to be combined. Martarius (talk) 13:51, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

Blank lines[edit]

Hey. Please do not remove blank lines like you have done here and in a large number of other articles as well. These are not "unnecessary", see WP:STUB: It is usually desirable to leave two blank lines between the first stub template and whatever precedes it. Thanks, Prolog (talk) 20:23, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

Sorry about that, I didn't know when those articles are going to be too long. Martarius (talk) 10:00, 29 January 2009 (UTC)

Hi. Can you offer your opinion on the conflict described here? Thanks. Nightscream (talk) 00:59, 17 February 2009 (UTC)

Yes, I think to come to a final consensus, we should wait until the season's DVD comes out and found out in the audio commentary of Pandemic to find out if there really is anything notable the previous episode reference. Martarius (talk) 10:35, 17 February 2009 (UTC)

Ambigram edits[edit]

I noticed you removed two references to (see on ...) in the examples on the Ambigram page. Since a major point of the examples was to enable people to see the actual ambigrams, yet it would be too much to show them inline. I didn't revert your change because I don't know your logic in removing some but not all of them. I would ask you to consider the purpose of having them there. Thanks. RoyLeban (talk) 16:59, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

The purpose of my edit there was for the ambigram links to still be easy to access from their information but to make more encyclopedic and less like a collection of image links. Martarius (talk) 17:44, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

Wong Doc-Fai page - Corrected links[edit]

Thanks for your contribution to the page, however, I had to revert the changes since the corrected links resulted in linking to nonexistent pages within the Wiki. I also tried to fix the fixes prior to reverting back, but was unable to determine the proper links to use. It was not meant as an insult to you. I will continue working on it and if you have any suggestions, please go ahead. Thank you, again.Clftruthseeking (talk) 18:07, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

Hello[edit]

Hi, I've noticed that you make quite a few edits to Simpsons articles, quite often fixing my small mistakes. I just wanted to say thank you. However, in the future, when you see original research like this or vandalism like this, could you please remove it or tag it, rather than fixing it?

Do you have any of the DVDs? We have an ongoing Featured topic drive and we always need great editors to work on articles, or just copyedit them, and if you have time to help out, we'd really appreciate it. Thanks, Scorpion0422 18:12, 19 October 2009 (UTC)

dude[edit]

Eveyone with good eyes and common sense can see that the nanny in the half of Burns song is the same as the one from 101 dalmatians. Especially because the episode is a parodie on 101 dalmatians. With your logics we could ask sources for everything. 1 + 1 isn't 2 till we have a viable source, etc.

anyway, here's some graphical evidence. http://i281.photobucket.com/albums/kk218/mijzelffan/nanny.jpg Mijzelffan (talk) 22:05, 25 November 2009 (UTC)

Thanks - Re: Generation Z[edit]

Thank you for your recent edits. Generation Z is still fairly new, and most of the article page need citing. --CreativeSoul7981 (talk) 13:04, 5 January 2010 (UTC)

You are welcome. Martarius (talk) 13:04, 5 January 2010 (UTC)

Hi. I have attempted to revert edits to these pages (see talk page for both articles), but an editor keeps changing back the dates for Generation Z with only one book as a source to back up his claims. All sources I have seen, including magazines, demographical research, and technological magazines all use the mid-1990s as the starting date for Generation Z, especially 1995. The editor making these changes is 3bulletproof16 (talk). I'd like to see what your opinion is on this. Your edits are appreciated. Thanks. CreativeSoul7981 (talk) 20:41, 24 July 2010 (UTC)

Firstly, the user seems to be mistaken on the number of sources being used to cite the early 1990's date. See this by the National Center for Biotechnology Information, or simply this by the California Teachers Association for some examples. I believe the user failed to read the citations next to the dates, though he claims only "one book" -whatever that means- was used.

I think mid-1990s is the one to have since it has more sources, in which more will agree with. If something as one source it is more likely to be incorrect. Martarius (talk) 20:59, 24 July 2010 (UTC)
While I understand your relationship with the user, note that this "something" doesn't have one source but rather five. I invite you to take a closer look at this issue, otherwise simply ignore it if it is a subject you are not familiar with. --UnquestionableTruth-- 21:08, 24 July 2010 (UTC)

I am not in disagreement with a couple of sources you provided, but I'm not sure if the website on parenting/pregnancy is appropriate. As I said previously, most sources cite 1995 as the starting date. I think a consensus should be reached before changing the dates in the heading of an article. Others are welcome to give their opinions. CreativeSoul7981 (talk) 21:45, 24 July 2010 (UTC) So has anyone decided on the actual dates used for Generation Z? Most sources I see start with 1995. Shouldn't the dates most used be included in articles? The dates the other user put up overlap with Generation Y. CreativeSoul7981 (talk) 18:39, 29 July 2010 (UTC)

Chinese Democracy[edit]

I see u have edited this article. I want 2 ask how to handle the disagreement between me and another editor over whether the reviews for the album have been "mixed" or "mixed to positive". The other editor says that "mixed" infers positive, like in a range or average, but I say a mixed review is one that is neither unfavorable or favorable (but inbetween), like a 2 and a half out of 5 star review. At Metacritic, the reviews are shown to be mostly mixed and positive ones, with a couple negative. Dan56 (talk) 02:57, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

I think you are right to say that mixed means in-between positive and negative because in-between is a 'mix' of positivity and negativity. Martarius (talk) 10:25, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

Reviewer[edit]

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

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, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes 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. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

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. --œ 23:11, 23 June 2010 (UTC)

Edit conflict on Chinese Democracy[edit]

Diacritical marks on Goran Visnjic's name[edit]

You probably won't be pleased to see I've reverted all your edits adding diacritical marks to Goran Visnjic's name in articles referring to his English-language work. While his birth name includes the marks, as does his professional work in his home country, he made a conscious choice to drop them when he began to work in English. The only English-language film in which he is billed with them is "Welcome to Sarajevo"; after that, everything is billed without them. His feeling was that his name was hard enough to pronounce without the added problem of the diacritical marks making it even less accessible. Drmargi (talk) 00:49, 30 November 2010 (UTC)

I actually changed the names to avoid unnecessary redirects, since both his name with diacritics and without have the same amount of letters and to save space on articles. I left his unlinked mentions of his name alone. Martarius (talk) 09:18, 30 November 2010 (UTC)
His name links to his article with either spelling, so I can certainly see the wisdom of taking out the redirects. However, the accuracy issue is a greater one, and the spelling is shorthand for the origins of his work; realistically, it also prevents constant corrections by his fangirls (and he's got a troop of rather too enthusiastic ones!). The greater body of his work is in English, and his article arguably should identify him without diacritical marks, but that's an entirely different discussion for another day. I'd suggest that this many changes should have been discussed on the talk page for his article, rather than simply done, particularly with no more of an edit summary than you left -- shorthand is fine, but doesn't make your motives clear, and in this many articles it risks looking a bit insider-ish, particularly given the number of casual users who edit celebrity articles. I'll backtrack when I have a little time and remove any redirects while preserving the accurate spelling. Drmargi (talk) 15:13, 30 November 2010 (UTC)

Combo boxes and Catscan[edit]

Hello! Last year as we in the Martial Arts group were cleaning articles for notability issues Wikipedia:WikiProject_Martial_arts/Article_Review, we discovered that the CatScan tool does not look inside combo boxes. The notability tag of [1] prevents catscan from finding this article. Would you object if I returned the external tag? Thanks! jmcw (talk) 10:43, 10 January 2011 (UTC)

Template:Isfdb_name Name Parameter[edit]

Is there a particular reason for this edit? I specifically used the name parameter to avoid issues that occur when pages are moved (i.e defaulting to the article title no longer being correct). Granted, that's less likely to occur with an less common name like this, but dab moves often occur. Is there something I'm missing? Thanks. -- JLaTondre (talk) 22:23, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

I avoid the name parameter when articles are currently considered to be moved. I removed the name parameters when they are unnecessary to save space. Martarius (talk) 22:27, 12 January 2011 (UTC)
Okay, that's fine & I don't particularly care. However, removing them doesn't save any space. The edit history, which keeps both versions of the page, takes up far more space than those few characters. The rendered page (HTML) size is also the same with or without the parameter so there is also no space saved when viewing the page. -- JLaTondre (talk) 01:42, 13 January 2011 (UTC)
I did not know that the more edits that occur on an article, the more space it takes up. I thought that the size of articles increase only when edits occur which add more characters to it. Martarius (talk) 10:18, 13 January 2011 (UTC)

This message is regarding Ivan Hippolyte being placed as a K-1 World Max Champion and should be reeditied as a K-3 Grand Prix Champion.

It is to my understanding that the K-3 and K-1 World Max Championships were of seperate catagories and as such should be seperated. Within the K-1 official website they state their K-1 World Max Champions in order of induction. In no official way do they include or recognize Ivan Hippolyte among that list indicating that Ivan should be placed within a separate category. 11:07pm Jan 20, 2011 Guest. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 199.126.41.223 (talk) 06:08, 21 January 2011 (UTC)

Infamous[edit]

Hi, I noticed you occasionally edit Infamous and I was wondering if you had played Infamous 2. For the plot, people keep adding that the good ending features a lightning bolt question mark at the very end. I've watched it and I can kinda see the resemblance but even so, this seems like OR and POV rather than anything that can be highlighted as something worth mentioning, more than just a subtle nod to any potential sequels. I was wondering if you had any input on this rather than me just keep removing it when added. Darkwarriorblake (talk) 15:54, 4 September 2011 (UTC)

Image links[edit]

Hi,

I just reverted your edit to the Tetrahedron article because I thought that Image namespace linking was supposed to have superseded File. Then I went to check and make sure. Turns out that according to the Image syntax style guidelines, The "File:" prefix may be used interchangeably with "Image:":. So it looks like we have both been wasting our time. My apologies for any inconvenience caused. — Cheers, Steelpillow (Talk) 09:50, 6 May 2012 (UTC)

Yes. Martarius (talk) 15:26, 28 August 2012 (UTC)
Also, does a WikiProject let all of it's users to diagnose an article in that particular area?Lucky102 (talk) 15:33, 28 August 2012 (UTC)
I think it depends on the amount of vandalism and unreliable edits that occur on the article. Martarius (talk) 15:38, 28 August 2012 (UTC)
I mean the users, not the article.Lucky102 (talk) 15:40, 28 August 2012 (UTC)

Thor[edit]

Hi there,

Thank you for all your work fixing links. However, I noticed so far that on at least a couple of occasions, you changed links from Thor (Marvel Comics) to Thor (comics), as here: [4]. Please keep in mind that the article is located at "Marvel Comics" not "comics". 24.1.246.28 (talk) 15:23, 29 October 2012 (UTC)

That's because I edited the wrong link. I only meant to edit the Asgard link. Martarius (talk) 22:55, 29 October 2012 (UTC)
No worries. :) 24.1.246.28 (talk) 03:21, 31 October 2012 (UTC)

author fmt[edit]

I don't want to edit war with you over it, but I'm not sure I understand the rationale for this edit.[5] Per WP:CITEVAR, it's good practice to leave the citation format of an article intact. But if you did want to insist on your preferred citation style (and I honestly don't care what style the author names appear in), why not change all of them, instead of just one? Having only one author's name appear as Last, First looks rather odd. Thanks, -- Khazar2 (talk) 23:31, 21 November 2012 (UTC)

Reorganization of Meteoroid proposed[edit]

Hi Martarius, I believe that the meteoroid article is currently poorly structured. I have proposed a re-organization at Talk:Meteoroid#Re-organization needed. Perhaps you could look over my proposal at User:HopsonRoad/sandbox and make a recommendation. Sincerely, User:HopsonRoad 21:15, 21 January 2013 (UTC)

Winter storm naming[edit]

I just wanted to make you aware of this discussion I started at Winter storm naming. I have no intentions of making any changes to the article myself, but was just hoping to get input from editors previously involved in the article (or recently-closed AfD) in an effort to improve the article and clarify its purpose. I will leave any changes to the consensus of other editors who decide what's best. Your participation would be welcome, regardless of your views on the issue. Thank you. 76.189.111.199 (talk) 22:19, 18 February 2013 (UTC)

Hi Martarius, can you check and make sure the change you made in this edit[6] is correct. It resulted in the image now being a red-link so there might be a typo or something. Cmr08 (talk) 21:16, 10 July 2013 (UTC)

Request to take part in a survey[edit]

I am Piotr Konieczny, a fellow Wikipedian (User:Piotrus) and a researcher of Wikipedia (http://scholar.google.com/citations?user=gdV8_AEAAAAJ). I am currently (in collaboration with WMF) embarking on a project trying to understand why the most active Wikipedia contributors (such as yourself) may reduce their activity, or retire. We have a growing understanding of why an average editor may do so (see http://strategy.wikimedia.org/wiki/Former_Contributors_Survey_Results), but we have a very limited understanding of why the top editors would limit their contributions. Yet it is the top editors like yourself who contribute most of Wikiepdia's content, thus understanding this is of vital concern to Wikipedia's project future.

I am contacting you because you are among the top Wikipediana by number of edits, yet your editing activity shows a decline. I would very much appreciate if you would take a minute and answer the following four short questions. Please note this is not a mass email; I am contacting only few dozen of editors like yourself, and each response is extremely valuable. Your response will not be made public, and your privacy will be fully respected.

If you would like to help out in this project and take part in a very short survey, please send me a wikiemail, so that I can send you an email with the survey questions. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 00:43, 17 July 2013 (UTC)

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article B.C. Rich Mockingbird has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

A poorly written, poorly sourced article.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the Template:Tlc notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing Template:Tlc will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist.

Revived interest in the film Infernal Affairs[edit]

Invitation to participate in the poll for Infernal Affairs.

From your edits for the film Infernal Affairs there is presently a poll taking place on The Departed film Talk page regarding whether you believe a separate subsection should be included for (a) Infernal Affairs as a source for the plot of The Departed film, and/or (b) a second subsection for the recently captured crime figure Whitey Bulger as the source for the character played by Jack Nicholson in the film.

The recent capture of Bulger has revived the question from two years ago of Infernal Affairs from when it did have a separate subsection on The Departed film page which was deleted by User:RepublicanJ, now known as User:OldJ. Invite to visit The Departed Talk page, to the Bulger section at the end of the Page, to participate in the Poll currently taking place. 208.120.96.227 (talk) 11:37, 7 September 2013 (UTC)

Some help[edit]

Hallo! I see that you have recently edited the document on 'Sayyid Qutb' in English Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sayyid_Qutb). I have just submitted an edit request (now in the talk section) and I am looking for an established user with editing rights to add that integration (the page is protected). Would you kindly be able to help me with that? There is an article that I raccomend for insertion in the 'Bibliography' section of Qutb's document. It is in the edit request in the 'talk' section of Sayyid Qutb. Thank you very much! --Sesamo12 (talk) 02:17, 11 January 2014 (UTC)

Punk rockers—As you know, the Ramones are undeniably the first punk rock band, so it is vital to this genre that we collaborate to improve their scope! So far, I have worked on the band's first three albums, and it would be awesome if all the punks on Wiki would aid in expanding/cleaning the Ramones articles. You can see my progress here.
Please fellow fans, do this for the old-school punk.

2012 elections in India[edit]

Hi,

If you go to the article Legislative Assembly elections in India, there is a list of various Legislative Assembly elections in India. For continuity, I copied some part relevant to these categories from 2012 elections in India to Legislative Assembly elections in India, 2012 and removed that part from 2012 elections in India by editing the section and providing the link to this article. Later I found that it has been reverted. Please see 2012 elections in India: Difference between revisions and discuss what can be done about this. Logical1004 (talk) 14:37, 5 March 2014 (UTC)
