By the way, good catch on the incorrectly labeled Confederate casualty on the American Civil War page. That's been mislabeled since upload, and those of us who see it every day didn't ever think to look further. If you need any help yourself don't be shy, visit my talk link.

Freezing rain[edit]

Salut,

La photo que tu as ajouté est bien mais redondante avec celle en bas de l'article. Pierre cb (talk) 11:44, 8 October 2010 (UTC)


Allo,

Oui, c'est vrai, mais ne trouvez vous pas que cette page ait besoin d'une photo principale? De plus, j'ai lu qu'a photographies équivalentes, on préférait celle dans le domaine public...alors pourquoi ne pas l'échanger?

12:36, 8 October 2010 (UTC)

La photo dans l'article est dans Commons, conforme aux licences acceptées par Wikipédia et donc publique. Je n'ai rien contre un remplacement de cette photo par la tienne mais elle y était antérieurement et a donc préséance à mon avis. Pour ce qui est de la mettre au début de l'article, le modèle qui est utilisé ne semble pas comporter de place pour en mettre une et l'ajout que tu avais fais faisait plutôt bancal avec trop d'images/tableaux.

War of 1812[edit]

Please don't go inserting results you think are best in articles. The current is a result of long standing consensus.Tirronan (talk) 00:54, 25 November 2011 (UTC)

Nicolas, you did advocate putting into the War of 1812 infobox - result - British Victory. Personally, I agree with you, I think it was a British victory, however this is irrelevant... the article must reflect the view of historians and their written sources, and some historians say it is a British victory, whereas others say it is a stalemate. Certainly most Canadians think it was a British victory..as they aren't part of the US now!. *However* the infobox must reflect the article, and I think the Infobox should reflect the fact that some historians think it is a British victory, and some say it was a stalemate. So what I am saying is, yes you have a point, and I will debate it.

As for the banner, while we shouldn't be arguing about who won or lost the war (which is an endless debate), you can debate about whether the infobox accurately reflects the article, that is another thing entirely. Anyways, just thought I would give you some words of encouragement.Deathlibrarian (talk) 10:05, 14 January 2012 (UTC)

See WP:LEAD. So long as there are sources in the article, the lead doesn't need sources as well. Dougweller (talk) 17:06, 24 September 2012 (UTC)

Islamophobia template RM[edit]

Hi Nicolas, you're probably watching your RM at Template talk:Islamophobia already, but I just wanted to elaborate my position a little bit. If your issue is with the term "Islamophobia," you're better off creating an RM at the article Islamophobia, or at least using a joint RM. As it stands, I think your proposal is wrongheaded in the sense that it would create dissonance between the article and the template. I hope you'll consider retooling the proposal, if appropriate. If you actually want the template and the article to be titled differently, perhaps you could articulate your reasons. Thanks, BDD (talk) 00:44, 7 December 2012 (UTC)

Hello Nicolas,

you have started two individual proposals to move the article Islamophobia and the Template:Islamophobia. I think that both discussions should be synchronised. The template should be under the same title as the corresponding article. Therefore I would like to advise you to stop the two separate discussions and start a synchronous one for both pages using the Template:Move-multi. Kind regards. --RJFF (talk) 17:25, 9 December 2012 (UTC)

List of ancient Egyptian dynasties[edit]

Hi, Nicolas,

I tried to clarify some more that Chart at the List of ancient Egyptian dynasties. Hope you like it. :) Y-barton (talk) 13:50, 18 July 2013 (UTC)

Narmer Palette[edit]

Salut!

Why did you add those "citation needed" templates smack-bang in the middle of the section titles, which looks plain ugly and is completely counter to established practice? More importantly, what exactly do you think needs citations at all? --Florian Blaschke (talk) 21:51, 20 July 2013 (UTC)

How about adding an edit comment to clarify this within the article? --Florian Blaschke (talk) 22:10, 20 July 2013 (UTC)
That sounds like a sensible idea to me, but I don't have any strong opinion about this and do not intend to enter Egyptological turf. You could be WP:BOLD and rename the sections accordingly, noting in the edit summary that this might be problematical as original terminology, so you welcome others' opinions on your proposal. --Florian Blaschke (talk) 22:28, 20 July 2013 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help.

Re Leonardo[edit]

The word "to" after "awarded" is not necessary. "Awarded to" is generally used for a prize or a medal. "Awarded" is often used for wages, prison sentences and so on. It's correct. Amandajm (talk) 12:26, 10 February 2014 (UTC)
