Hi! Lets finde a solution. I think to add the hungarian name is not importent, because we have the section name fore this.--Nado158 (talk) 12:26, 7 June 2014 (UTC)

Zakynthos[edit]

Two of the links you removed were already active, so please dont remove them without cause. As for the inactive links, given the fact that two of their equals-in-context were already active, this gives me cause to assume that their creation at some point is indeed a possibility. After all, red links help Wikipedia grow. --Jamez1502 (talk) 01:44, 24 June 2014 (UTC)

May I suggest that the article's talk page is a better place than mine for this discussion?
Actually, I went a step further and clicked on the links you refer: Agios Nikolaos, Zakynthos (created by myself, btw [1]) leads to the nearby harbor (already linked elsewhere), as you can see here: 37°54′20″N 20°42′21″E / 37.90556°N 20.70583°E / 37.90556; 20.70583, while Agios Sostis leads to an unrelated village in mainland Greece. Since I know the area, I can tell you that those islets are uninhabited, off-coast rocks about ~100 m in length each, unlikely to satisfy WP:N. There must be a limit where WP:REDLINKs are desirable.

Pau riders[edit]

I disagree with your assessment of consensus, well actually since you didn't use consensus, I object to that. I would have waited for an administrative close but to be honest, I don't feel like bothering them about this at the moment. So I wanted to tell you upfront I do not believe you called that correctly and perhaps a non admin closing was a the best way to handle that dispute. Feel free to delete this, respond here or on my user page, but I have no immediate plans to dispute this further for the moment.--Mark Miller (talk) 08:25, 1 August 2014 (UTC)

As I said, the debate was long and unwieldy and apparently no one wanted to resolve the Gordian knot, so I decided to take it upon myself (and started a discussion at WT:AT to that effect, as the whole ‘Okina MOS is hopelessly tangled). You are correct that there is no consensus, but it was apparent, at least to me, that the actual title was the worst choice. Of course, you're free to disagree. No such user (talk) 08:43, 1 August 2014 (UTC)
No, we are not to that point. Your thread and proposal gained no consensus where you say: "OK, I see your point – that quote marks of any kind are discouraged – and I agree with that part, so I'm striking my proposal as inadequate" it also has no bearing on the point. There was no consensus to change the article title regardless of your closing and move.
If anything, you're convincing me that the whole business is needlessly tangled. Regardless of my personal attitude whether ʻokina should be used in the article titles, it should not be grouped along with quotes and apostrophes in WP:AT. Just because it resembles one, it's not an apostrophe. As the article says, The ʻokina, [...] is a [...] letter (bold mine). I'm inclined to strongly agree with Kavebear and In ictu oculi that apostrophe is not an adequate replacement for an ʻokina under any circumstances, and thus Pa'u riders is not an appropriate encyclopedic title. Now, it's up to WP:HAWAII to decide, without unnecessary constraints from WP:AT, if it should be used or not in article titles and/or text, and I won't interfere with that. As I said in the closing statement, the quoted wording does not provide any guidance except to create redirects as appropriate (we knew that, thanks). No such user (talk) 10:01, 1 August 2014 (UTC)
I don't care about WT:AT because there was no consensus there. You also don't understand who is arguing what and why. I am the one that requested Pa'u riders be changed to the okina to User:Fram because the apostrophe is being used as the okina and shouldn't. The other editor objected only because I objected to changing to the complete Hawaiian orthography and then made the Move Request suggesting numerous names but the one on the admin's talk page I was requesting. My request is based on spelling a group or organization's name. Also with the current title the "R" is not capitalized and changes the scope of the article. Now we are only talking about pau riding alone as a tradition and not the organizations and that's not the current scope of the article.--Mark Miller (talk) 10:21, 1 August 2014 (UTC)
@No such User thank you for the ping. I have no particular concern about the close other than you should amend the template to include the "non admin close" indication. @Mark Miller, I am generally sympathetic to use of correct fonts for all Latin-alphabet languages. I wish you luck with arriving at consensus at MOS Hawaii. There must be more than one article this affects. If it really is an issue then suggest come back in 6 months to Pau riders and revisit the RM. Best wishes to yourself and Kavebear and all those adding Hawaii content. In ictu oculi (talk) 11:10, 1 August 2014 (UTC)
The Okina is what should be there and MOS Hawaii did sort almost all this out and there appears to be a rough consensus on how to handle the situation. You are only interfering in that. The MOS Hawaii consensus states only that in cases where both diacritics are used, to use either or none. But in cases where it is the group/organization, person or place to use the their spelling but replace the apostrophe with the okina. This was just a bad closing and a move for the wrong reasons.--Mark Miller (talk) 09:26, 1 August 2014 (UTC)
None of this was mentioned on the debate at the time I closed it (and I read it all). How was I supposed to know about it? In any case, the article was at Pa'u riders (with an apostrophe), which was clearly incorrect. Just now I saw (and I'm reading) the lengthy debate at Wikipedia talk:Manual of Style/Hawaii-related articles. When and if that concludes with a clear outcome, feel free to speedy move Pau riders wherever it's suitable. My move should be understood as an interim measure, not as an ultimate decision. And the discussion at WT:AT is completely orthogonal to the whole issue. No such user (talk) 10:14, 1 August 2014 (UTC)
It is not clearly incorrect. It is the actual spelling used through out the modern day use of the organization but, consensus exists to treat all apostrophes in Hawaiian words as Okina and should be changed when found, because people don't have an okina button on their keyboards. How are you supposed to know it? You even bring up MOS Hawaii, I assumed you went to the talk page. Perhaps you just read the MOS itself. OK, that could have saved some time. As I said, I am not going to ask for it to be changed. If I have to, expanding the subject may be an option by forking. It is historic, and has reliable sources of a diverse nature. But, I do think the closing was not the best route.--Mark Miller (talk) 10:29, 1 August 2014 (UTC)

Qxukhgiels[edit]

You've been here a while now, Nsu, you should know better than to engage in frivolous edit wars over a couple of remarks that are indeed crass. If any AfD discussion is preventing you from keeping calm, you're doing it wrong :) --Joy [shallot] (talk) 11:47, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

Perhaps I should note also that it was a good idea to call someone - but at that point you should have just left it alone, or just reinstated your comment without the acrimonious phrasing. --Joy [shallot] (talk) 11:48, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

Joy, I ain't no saint, as you know, and I don't suffer fools gladly. Actually, I was quite restraintful, as I wrote down a few Corbett-style insults, but rephrased them before posting. Don't know about you, but some venting off at total assholes helps maintaining my mental health. Yep, I know a wikibreak would do as well, and I'm considering it.

re[edit]

Don't try to school me by putting these links to good-faith editing and so. Fyi, I've never wanted the discussion because there wasn't need for it. All the "oppose merge" comments are based on self-belief of how something should work, and not on reliable sources. That's why I-m "pushing" you to write good reasons for opposing, and all you who opposed merge gave a bunch of non-written rules of how it should look. This is the first time I've joined the discussion and I regret it. When I feel that something is not right (based on FACTS), as more as you continue to defend its "legacy", I will attack its disputed legacy even further. Loss is not an option. It could be an option if I was wrong. I'll be the first one who admit that I was wrong, but that is not a case here. The discussion will continue.--AirWolf talk 17:26, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

What is the point with this your notice that I've made a good contribution to Serbian economy related articles? To soften my stance in future on this topic? If that's the case, then f*** it, I don't care.--AirWolf talk 17:30, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
re2: "with better or worse arguments." I laughed here the most. What arguments? What?--AirWolf talk 17:40, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
re3: Let me ask you philosophical question. Do we, as a community, have to respect good-faith opinion if it is full of non-sense? Or even more radical, as you were pointing me to Wikipedia:Assume good faith, I'm pointing you to Wikipedia:Assume the assumption of good faith. Now what I'm telling, you were unconstructive, thus way probably wanting to dispute merging.--AirWolf talk 17:50, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
I don't have any words for what you wrote. Shame on you.--AirWolf talk 20:26, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
For the sake of a discussion, I apologize if I've offended you. All my talk since I started with bad, "selfish" words in a really good manner, in order to try to direct you to facts and how it was done with other similar companies. Then, in my opinion, when I contested any of your previous talk, you've started to give another and another reason of why the articles shouldn't be merged. And each following reason was even fewer and fewer reasonable (in my opinon). Sorry, but I see such talk by intentional screwing (sorry for such expression). Again, I apologize you here and I'll revise my bad talk in discussion. Just like you've said: "It's just a fucking article on a fucking website." Have a nice day.--AirWolf talk 13:23, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

Gojko Šušak[edit]

Hello. Why did you change the IPA transcription? [gôːjko ʃûːʃak] is how HJP transcribes it. — Peter238 (v̥ɪˑzɪʔ mɑˑɪ̯ tˢʰoˑk̚ pʰɛˑɪ̯d̥ʒ̊) 14:08, 16 December 2014 (UTC)

That's how I always heard it, though I can't claim it with certainty. I wasn't aware that you had a source available. Still, I don't see any accents in HJP [2], probably because of the font: I see Šẉšak, Gojko. You can hear a pronunciation by Denis Latin at [3], which matches mine. This one [4] is rather indeterminate to me(the speaker is from Zagreb which is not really a benchmark of prosody). OTOH, the one at [5] says /ʃǔːʃak/, which is also plausible. But to this native speaker, /ʃûːʃak/ sounds just wrong. No such user (talk) 14:31, 16 December 2014 (UTC)
The prescribed variant is [gôːjko], as per HJP. The non-standard variant used in Zagreb doesn't have tones, it has stress and would be [ˈgojko]. 193.198.212.70 (talk) 17:16, 16 December 2014 (UTC)
OK, I stand corrected, although I've always heard that particular name (not Šušak's in particular) as /gǒːjko/ (and I do have a native grasp of tones). As for the surname, I still think HJP is wrong; I don't have time to find his own pronunciation though. His fellow Herzegovinians would get it right, just if we can find one. No such user (talk) 19:25, 16 December 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. Well, no wonder you weren't aware of the source - I didn't put it in the article due to my laziness. Anyway, your link provides the following transcription: Šȗšak. I can see it just fine, but when I copy-paste it here, there's the same bug as in your transcription. The first name is transcribed here: [6] - they prescribe Gȏjko. Try accessing these pages with Internet Explorer, it should display the Vukovian symbols properly. I must admit that in many cases I have a hard time hearing BCS tones, unless the speaker is from Bosnia or northern Serbia (Vojvodina). The indeterminate pronunciation to me sounds somewhat like [ˈgôjko ˈʃuːʃak] (falling and toneless, respectively), perhaps to be interpreted as [gôjko ʃǔːʃak]. — Peter238 (v̥ɪˑzɪʔ mɑˑɪ̯ tˢʰoˑk̚ pʰɛˑɪ̯d̥ʒ̊) 15:55, 16 December 2014 (UTC)
Well, I must say I'm impressed anyway. I got that you're a trained phonetician, but still, for a foreigner to actually parse the tones requires quite a thin ear. No such user (talk) 19:25, 16 December 2014 (UTC)
Actually a self-trained amateur, but thanks anyway. — Peter238 (v̥ɪˑzɪʔ mɑˑɪ̯ tˢʰoˑk̚ pʰɛˑɪ̯d̥ʒ̊) 20:47, 16 December 2014 (UTC)
Hello once again. Does this pronunciation contain a stressed long vowel? To me, it definitely sounds longer than the unstressed ones, but then again - Handbook of the International Phonetic Association says that unstressed vowels are shorter than the stressed ones by 30% (in case of short vowels) and 50% (in case of long vowels). — Peter238 (v̥ɪˑzɪʔ mɑˑɪ̯ tˢʰoˑk̚ pʰɛˑɪ̯d̥ʒ̊) 21:38, 18 December 2014 (UTC)
It's a short rising, /gradǎtʃats/. IMO the speaker enunciates/lengthens it slightly, I wouldn't call it typical. Are you investigating some particular pattern? I browsed a bit Bosnian ones and these are fine examples of short rising by tone quality and pronunciation: http://www.forvo.com/word/latice/ , http://www.forvo.com/word/%C5%A1ljokica/ , http://www.forvo.com/word/acetilenski/ No such user (talk) 22:30, 18 December 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. No, I was just curious about that particular word, but thanks for the links. The stressed vowel in Bosnian latice sounds a bit prolonged [ǎˑ], exactly as in case of Gradačac. But I know why I'm mishearing it: i (in case of "latice") and a (in case of Gradačac) are more schwa-like and shortened, somewhat like [ɘ̆] and [ɜ̆], respectively. That gives the illusion of the stressed vowel preceding these unstressed vowels being long. — Peter238 (v̥ɪˑzɪʔ mɑˑɪ̯ tˢʰoˑk̚ pʰɛˑɪ̯d̥ʒ̊) 23:08, 18 December 2014 (UTC)
Reduction of post-accented vowels is, of course, pretty normal. It is especially audible in informal speech in Bosnia, particularly with /i/. There's even a joke: "Which Bosnian word has two consecutive /n/s ? Answer: slǎnna" (it's much worse than on that Forvo recording) No such user (talk) 07:50, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

You are not an administrator.[edit]

You are not an administrator and therefore have no right to shut down an ANI discussion using the {archive} template as you did in this edit. Impersonating an administrator is an instantly blockable action. You are permitted to make a non administrator collapse of off topic discussions using the {cot} template, but that is not the case here. In particular, your grounds are erroneous. Had you bothered to read the complaint, you would see that is addressing a long standing behavioural issue from an established tendentious editor which has been the subject of a previous RfC. There are inevitably content issues discussed but these are, in general, discussed as symptoms of the main issues being discussed. Any attempt at primarily discussing content and not the ANI complaint has been either flagged (and withdrawn) or collapsed. Thank you. DieSwartzPunkt (talk) 16:02, 16 December 2014 (UTC)

Actually, I do have the right as an uninvolved editor in good standing. Your reaction that "impersonating an administrator is an instantly blockable action" is quite inappropriate, as I clearly declared NAC in the closure. Having sufficient experience with threads like this one on ANI, I see 1) a content dispute no administrator is going to tackle and 2) a long-standing issue with Wtshymanski (that I'm aware of) for which the ANI is exactly the wrong kind of venue (and which is no administrator going to tackle, again), so I tried to cut the fruitless bickering. Has anybody tried talking with Wtshymanski, for the start? No such user (talk) 16:19, 16 December 2014 (UTC)
"Has anybody tried talking with Wtshymanski...?". Oh God yes. I've tried. Many others have tried (there is a fair list in the RfC). As everyone who has tried has discovered it is a total waste of time. Wtshymanski is right and everyone else wrong (which is a fundamental plank of the ANI). Any attempt at discussing anything is met with a completely standard response as here, and here (Deliberately found two examples from other than myself. In particular note the sarcastic edit summariess attached.) The admins are well aware of all this so let's wait and see what they say. DieSwartzPunkt (talk) 16:46, 16 December 2014 (UTC)
I can tell you right away: they'll say nothing, but feel free to rest hopeful. I am aware that Wtshymanski is difficult to work with, to put it mildly, but in this particular content dispute nobody really tried to: Talk:Ladder logic is still blank. He's probably guilty about edit warring, just as the IP, and wrong about the tag, but if all the energy on edit-warring with him, then opening an ANI, then edit-warring with me on meta-issues had been spent on a talk page clarification, we'd all be happier and the article better. ANI is not a recommended step in the WP:DR, and it sucks at that anyway. No such user (talk) 19:41, 16 December 2014 (UTC)
Still not read the ANI? Read it again and you will discover that I did not open it. Further, I am not involved in this particular edit war (and have no evidence as to the correctness either way) so there is no obligation on me to discuss anything anywhere else. As to whether the OP comes out of this smelling of roses: that is another matter. DieSwartzPunkt (talk) 12:36, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
Of course I've read it the first time. All of it. On one hand, the IP deserves a WP:BOOMERANG (and he doesn't seem like a newbie at all). On the other, your and Guy Macon's concerns about Wtsh were nicely put alright, but ANI is a forum designed for incidents, not for addressing long-term dickishness, particularly of good-faith kind as displayed by Wtsh. He hasn't done anything approaching blockable in this instance. So ask yourself: what do you expect as an outcome of that ANI? An administrator will come and do what to Wtsh?
So, if he's not going to be blocked, you'll have to deal with him, sorry. I've encountered him on few engineering articles but didn't have much contact: seems like a guy with heart in the right place, but with suboptimal communication skills. But he's not unreasonable (or at least, in this particular incident he's not to blame any more than the IP). No such user (talk) 13:04, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
