Page moves[edit]

  1. Please don't move articles on the Main page unless they are wrong, it breaks stats.
  2. Please check first what made people decide on an article title, in this case that WAB is too little known to be the only dab for Bruckner's work, - different from K. for Mozart and BWV for Bach. (Recent discussion on Classical music, look for Schubert, whose D catalogue was also not found enough of a dab.)
  3. I reverted you, partly. Ave Maria (Bruckner) is THE Ave Maria that people think of, only the others need a number. I left WAB 5 and 7, but only for lack of time. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 08:09, 5 November 2014 (UTC)

Jesus talk page editnotice[edit]

Hi David, I just wanted to ask a favour: as you may or may not be aware at Talk:Jesus we have had a lot of complaints recently because Facebook's page categorises our saviour as a "fictional character". Since this has nothing to do with us another editor and I wish to create an editnotice about it at the talk page, but since I'm not an administrator I can't. I wonder if you might consider putting an editnotice about this at Template:Editnotices/Page/Talk:Jesus for us? I was thinking something along the following lines:

Thanks and I hope you are well. Congratulations by the way about getting Not My Life scheduled for the main page. —  Cliftonian (talk)  17:17, 5 November 2014 (UTC)

Thanks —  Cliftonian (talk)  08:49, 6 November 2014 (UTC)
Hi again David, I'm writing again about [Template:Editnotices/Page/Talk:Jesus this]; Facebook have altered their page, so it's no longer necessary. Do you think you can please take the editnotice down for me? Thanks and I hope you are doing well. —  Cliftonian (talk)  19:51, 6 December 2014 (UTC)
Cheers again. If we don't talk again before the big day, have a very Merry Christmas :) —  Cliftonian (talk)  08:43, 7 December 2014 (UTC)
Oh, for pity's sake— they've gone back to "fictional character". I'm sorry to bother you again but do you think we could put the editnotice back up? —  Cliftonian (talk)  04:12, 12 December 2014 (UTC)
Cheers —  Cliftonian (talk)  04:17, 12 December 2014 (UTC)

FT credit line[edit]

For Wikipedia:Wikipedia Signpost/2014-11-26/Featured content, does (nominated by Neelix, with initial work by M.K.) seem like a reasonable credit line? You certainly did the work responding, and deserve credit, but you credit M.K. for the initial work, so I didn't want to leave him or her out. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Adam Cuerden (talkcontribs)

No worries. There'll be a longer description in the Signpost, of course - it's usually better to check things before you publish, after all - and if there's a good image, I'll try to fit that in as well. Adam Cuerden (talk) 23:50, 22 November 2014 (UTC)
...Say, do you speak Lithuanian by any chance? Because if we could get higher-resolution images of File:Signatarai.Signatories of Lithuania.jpg or File:Jonas Basanavicius (1851-1927).jpg or, really, most of the stuff they offered, I bet it would pass at featured picture. Adam Cuerden (talk) 00:30, 23 November 2014 (UTC)

Back on topic, any obvious errors in this summary?

In the closing years of First World War, Lithuania, which had been part of the Russian Empire, found itself invaded by Germans. Paradoxically, this was, on the whole, a good thing for Lithuania: Lithuania had been trying to gain independence for years, and Germany didn't want to upset the Russians by merely grabbing their territory, but could form an alliance with an independent Lithuania. They allowed the Vilnius Conference on independence, hoping that the conference would come down firmly on independence and a closer relationship with Germany, but the conference only came down for independence, the closer relationship dependant on Germany recognizing them as an independent state. The conference created the Council of Lithuania, formed from a group of men of a variety of social classes and positions, and they were set the task of negotiating terms, but it wasn't until Germany finally lost the First World War in 1918 that the Lithuanians were finally in sufficiently good of a position to push through the independence they wanted. World War II and reconquest by Russia lurked in the country's future, but, for the time, Lithuania was free.

Adam Cuerden (talk) 01:03, 23 November 2014 (UTC)

Fixed the first, I think the second is right as written though, surely. Adam Cuerden (talk) 01:32, 23 November 2014 (UTC)

As someone born in America, who's lived in Britain for 16 years (Specifically, North England for 4, Wales for 4, and, most recently, Scotland for 8), that may well be. Plus, I read a LOT of Victorian literature. Adam Cuerden (talk) 01:45, 23 November 2014 (UTC)
