BH Municipalities[edit]

Hi,

I am trying to find the underlying boundary files used to create this map http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Bosnia_and_Herzegovina_municipal_elections_2008_result.png. Can you tell me how it was produced and if you do have spatial files can you share them with me?

waypoints — Preceding unsigned comment added by Waypoints (talkcontribs) 21:51, 6 December 2011 (UTC)

I'm sorry, I've got no idea – I probably transferred that file from en.wikipedia to the Commons, but I did not create it AFAICR. —Nightstallion 22:33, 6 December 2011 (UTC)

Di Rupo I Government[edit]

Hey, Nightstallion. I've just wrapped up fixing some clumsy Flemish-to-English prose in the article for the Di Rupo I Government and would like to expand more on the 541 days of negotiation (obviously not to the extent of 2010–2011 Belgian government formation or 2007–2011 Belgian political crisis, but something more), specifically the latter-days breakthroughs such as the BHV/state reform, nuclear phaseout, the budget and the Dexia bailout and the impetus lead by the S&P downgrade and Leterme's nomination as Deputy Secretary General of the OECD but I'm not sure if I'm particularly skilled enough to do so. In any case, time constraints may prevent me from doing so at all. Do you know of anyone more qualified to write on Belgian issues? Therequiembellishere (talk) 07:49, 7 December 2011 (UTC)

Hi. When you recently edited Serbian parliamentary election, 2012, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Liberal Democratic Party (Serbia) (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Guinea=Bissau Prez[edit]

Please dont synthesize without a source. WP is not a weblog or twitter, to make pronounce ments on a new president without a source is certainly nto up to RS standards and would be OR.

The source says that he will continue in his role it doesnt NOT say he will be sworn in as acting/interim, which officially means that he will continue in his capacity of taking charge of presidential affairs not that he will be president which is different, however technical. Perhaps officially the post will be vacant, unless we have a source saying otherwise(Lihaas (talk) 21:43, 9 January 2012 (UTC)).

See http://rulers.org/rulg2.html#guinea-bissau . —Nightstallion 21:44, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
That doesnt mention anything about his swearing in which happarently happened yest. (hence a news story)
More reputable sources liek the NYT and AFP donet mention anything of the sort. in fact the latter says he will CONTINUE on in his position which is indicatibve off him being acting prez for even longer then.(Lihaas (talk) 12:59, 10 January 2012 (UTC)).
Yeah, but there's a difference. While the president is in office and alive, he's only standing in; once he's dead, he's actually acting president in his own right, sworn in or not. —Nightstallion 15:04, 10 January 2012 (UTC)
I'm sorry, but you reverting me, Everyking and Nightstallion because you aren't reading into the news correctly and responding angrily to us when we try to explain our position to you is getting really tiring. Therequiembellishere (talk) 17:22, 11 January 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Pakistani Senate election, 2012[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Pakistani Senate election, 2012 requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a very short article providing little or no context to the reader. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, 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. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. BPositive (talk) 18:35, 25 January 2012 (UTC)

2012 Chinese Grand Prix[edit]

Hey, I noticed that you restored the content of the 2012 Chinese Grand Prix page with the comment that it "was not too soon". The race itself does not happen for another three weeks, and there is no real information about it aside from the fact that the race will take place. Generally, the editors at WP:F1 do not create race report pages until after the previous race has been completed, unless it is particularly notable, like the 2012 Bahrain Grand Prix.

Proposed deletion of Mauritanian parliamentary election, 2012[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Mauritanian parliamentary election, 2012 has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Its not true at all according to RS sources (as opposed to the individual's website). Election was in 2011 and 2013 [3]. Nor is it in the news. ([4][5][6]. Even the original cited website doesnt give a date.)

While all 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 {{proposed deletion/dated}} 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 {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

WikiIndaba and Wikipedian in Residence Notice[edit]

Dear Nightstallion

As a Wikipedian interested in African subjects and specifically Malawi, I would like you to be aware of the following two opportunities:

1. Wikimedia South Africa and WikiAfrica are organising an WikiIndaba for February 2014 – a continental meeting for Africa-based Wikipedians to get together, discuss challenges and drive the agenda for Wikipedia from Africa. If you support this initiative, then please sign up on this site: http://wikiindaba.net – we also want to hear what you want the Wiki Indaba to achieve. What are your expectations? What does it need to include? Who and what do you want to see happen at WikiIndaba? What is your area of interest? Languages? Data? Please share your ideas and thoughts on the Community Portal

2. WikiAfrica is looking for a Wikipedian in Residence from Malawi. This might be a position that you would consider. Or it could be the perfect opportunity for someone you know from Malawi, please spread the word! For more details, please look at this page: http://www.wikiafrica.net/wikipedian-in-residence-malawi

If you have any questions about either of the above, please contact isla on isla [at] wikiafrica [dot] net : Isla Haddow (talk)

Forza Italia (2013), Italian politics and the Austrian election[edit]

Hello Nighstallion,

It has been a long time since we talked the last time. How are you doing?

I'm feeling bold today, thus I decided to start a new article on Forza Italia (2013), describing it as a proposed party, as you did with the PdL in 2007. What is more interesting to me is that the re-foundation of FI, which aims at being a liberal party, is likely to prompt the launch of a new conservative party on the model of the late National Alliance, although this time the former will be much bigger than the latter. Please feel free to edit and expand the article!

Interesting things are happening in Italian politics. Matteo Renzi is set to become the new leader of the Democratic Party, while Flavio Tosi, mayor of Verona and leader of Liga VenetaLega Nord, will soon launch his bid to become the leader of the Italian centre-right after Berlusconi. It is not clear whether he will have all his party behind, as he is the scourge of Liga Veneta's Venetists and of Lega Nord's Padanists and traditionalists: all these disagree with Tosi on Italian unity and detest his good relations with Italian "nationalists" such as Giorgia Meloni, leader of Brothers of Italy. However, despite having sided with Roberto Maroni and opposed Berlusconi, Tosi is basically a conservative liberal and his "national" agenda will include: federal reform, justice reform, support for the free-market, tax and spending cuts. Moreover, Tosi's arch-rival in Veneto, Governor Luca Zaia, who is more attuned with Venetists and the party's left, might support Tosi as long as Tosi supports his re-election campaign for President of Veneto in 2015. As usual, a lot depends on Berlusconi's actions. For once, the outlook is much calmer on the left side of the political spectrum!

What about Austria? I have been following the opinion polls, but what are your suggestions on the election's outcome? Your hopes? Will the BZÖ and NEOS qualify for the threshold? Will you support NEOS as you supported Liberal Forum in 2008? --Checco (talk) 11:20, 16 September 2013 (UTC)

Interesting events in Italy, for sure …
No, this time around I think I prefer the Pirates – NEOS is too neoliberal for me, I'm afraid. ;)
Great to hear from you, though! :)
Nightstallion 11:48, 16 September 2013 (UTC)
Oh, yes, I did not think of the Pirates: I hope you won't be disappointed again by the threshold.
Can you tell me anything more about your forecast and your auspices on the election's outcome? Thanks, --Checco (talk) 13:10, 16 September 2013 (UTC)
Probably will be, though. Pirates will almost certainly fail, NEOS very probably.
SPÖ will remain first, ÖVP second, FPÖ won't gain too many votes, Greens will get around 15%, Stronach will probably do worse than he thought (the more he appears in TV, the worse he does – probably about 6–7%). BZÖ will certainly fail, NEOS likely, Pirates – sadly enough – too.

No Presents for Christmas on Bahamas[edit]

Hello, Nightstallion! According to [9], [10] the referendum on new constitution for Bahamas must be held on November, 2013. I had found the information, that now Bahamas will remain a British Dominion with the queen ahead [11]: "At this time, the Commission does not recommend any change in the Office of the Governor General as the representative of the Queen as Head of State under a constitutional monarchy. It does recommend, however, that consideration should be given to planning for the eventual evolution to a parliamentary republican system, with a non-executive President as Head of State. The Commission is of the view that this is the inevitable terminus of constitutional evolution to full sovereignty and independence, and the only issue is timing. In fact, we cannot allow ourselves the delusional luxury of assuming that the Queen (or King) of England will forever be available to be Sovereign of The Bahamas, or any of the other ‘independent’ countries of which she is monarch. The monarchy will continue to wane either by a process of attrition, or possibly by constitutional changes from within the UK itself." "Recommendation(s) 32. The Commission does not at this time recommend that there should be any change in the Queen as the Head of State and the Office of Governor-General as the representative of the Queen under a constitutional monarchy. However, the Government should embark on a process of public education to prepare the public for a possible change to a republican form of Government at some point in the future. Should such a change be made, it would require amendments to the Constitution providing for a non-executive national President, as Head-of-State, to discharge the functions formerly vested in the Governor General, with the Prime Minister and Cabinet continuing to exercise executive powers." That means that it's necessary to wait 40 years more to live to see, when Bahamians will growth for Republic. We have no choice to wait for public rejection of "new" constitution on referendum.
