Jessadabodindra[edit]

บทความนี้ผมได้ทำการเปลี่ยนชื่อกลับไปใช้ชื่อเดิมครับ เพราะว่าหัวชื่อบทความกษัตริย์ไทยในหน้าภาษาอังกฤษใช้ชื่อตัวครับ ไม่ใช่ใช้ชื่อเมื่อครองราชย์แล้ว รวมถึงการเปลี่ยนชื่อบทความมีผลทำให้แม่แบบเสียไป

ให้สังเกตุว่ารัชการอื่นๆก็ใช้ชื่อส่วนตัวหมดครับ ยกเว้นรัชการที่หนึ่งกับสองเพราะมีชื่อเดียวจึงกลับไปใช้ชื่อเจษฎาราชเจ้าเหมือนเดิม

--โจ : แฟนท่าเรือ : เกรียนที่หน้าตาไม่ดีแห่งไร้สาระนุกรม : พูดคุยกับควายตัวนี้ได้ที่นี่ 05:51, 15 August 2012 (UTC)

ประเด็นนี้เคยมีการหารือกันก่อนหน้านี้ที่ Talk:Jessadabodindra นะครับ เหตุที่เห็นว่าบทความควรใช้ชื่อ Nangklao มากกว่าเพราะ (1) แหล่งอ้างอิงที่เชื่อถือได้ส่วนใหญ่ในภาษาอังกฤษต่างใช้ชื่อ Nangklao (หรือ Rama III) เกือบทั้งสิ้น (2) การใช้พระนามเรียกชื่อพระมหากษัตริย์ราชวงศ์จักรีในภาษาอังกฤษ เพิ่งเริ่มใช้กันแพร่หลายตั้งแต่รัชกาลที่ 4 เป็นต้นมา (3) เจษฎาบดินทร์ เป็นราชทินนาม (ทรงกรมเป็น กรมหมื่นเจษฎาบดินทร์) ไม่ใช่พระนาม (ที่ถูกต้องคือ พระเจ้าลูกยาเธอ พระองค์เจ้าชายทับ) จึงไม่สามารถใช้ได้ตามการให้เหตุผลข้างต้นครับ --Paul_012 (talk) 17:36, 15 August 2012 (UTC)

Porn vs Phon[edit]

You are right that porn is common within English language usage, especially before RGTS. But Thai intellectuals (teachers, artists and writers) that I know feel strongly about the use of the term porn in Latin script because of its demeaning connotations in English, especially when connected with young women, religion and culture, the theme of the Nariphon article. The reason is that it could lead to misinterpretations, this is why I had kept "porn" deliberately out and stuck to RTGS. (Xufanc (talk) 11:40, 9 September 2012 (UTC))

I'm not sure if Wikipedia policy supports making such editorial judgements. The redirect's there, though, so it shouldn't matter much. I won't dispute if you want to change it back. --Paul_012 (talk) 15:24, 12 September 2012 (UTC)

File:Krungthep Mahanakhon sample.ogg[edit]

I don't see anything in Wikipedia:NFCC that restricts use of a non-free samples to just articles about the work that has been sampled. I believe that it meets the criteria #8: :"Contextual significance. Non-free content is used only if its presence would significantly increase readers' understanding of the topic, and its omission would be detrimental to that understanding." Contextual significance means that the sample makes a contribution in the context in which it is being used. The Bangkok article has an entire section devoted to explain how unusual the full name of the city of Bankok is, and the song is very relevant and helps the reader understand the subject better. If not unique, it is very, very unusual for a songs lyric to consist IN ITS ENTIRETY of just the name of a place. That is all that the songs lyric contains, repeated over and over and over, and it is the song that is responsible for most of the occupants being able to remember the name of their city. So the name of the city, the name of the song, and the song itself are all connected, and best discussed where it is.

It seems as though you would not object to the sample being in an article about the song. I don't know if there is really any need to write an article just about the song. There is not much more to say about it than has been said in the article about Bangkok. If in the future, it was to have its own article, then the use of the sample could be moved there and the song could be linked from the Bangkok article. I don't think it should matter either way. I find both uses acceptable and don't understand how it would be acceptable in one use and not in the other.

I don't claim to be an expert on fair use, and I tend to be liberal in my interpretation of Wikipedia guidelines, so I willing to discuss this further and perhaps see how my interpretation is in error. If there is some relevant guideline or discussion that explains your objections in more detail, I'd like to see it. But for now, I think the tag should be removed. -- SamuelWantman 07:01, 13 September 2012 (UTC)

Your arguments are reasonable, but I'm still not sure how policy should be interpreted in this case. I've copied the discussion and submitted a non-free content review. Thanks for sharing your opinions. --Paul_012 (talk) 14:51, 13 September 2012 (UTC)

Default scale in Location maps[edit]

I very much like the idea of autoscaling vertical maps (especially in infoboxes). I just added defaultscale=0.75 to {{Location map USA California}}. Thanks for implementing it!

One comment: shouldn't defaultscale for vertical maps generally be 0.75? This is analogous to the "upright" flag in the image markup. I noticed that you set defaultscale for Thailand to be 0.57. This strikes me as being too small. When the default width of a map is 272 (in an infobox, say), then I think editors would be surprised if the map is scaled to be 272 pixels tall. Infoboxes are generally taller than they are wide, by design, so having a 204 by 359 pixel Thailand map seems just fine to me. —hike395 (talk) 14:00, 12 December 2012 (UTC)

I was under the impression that the 0.75 scale for the upright flag was assuming a 4:3 image ratio, so that the height of upright images (those that are of that proportion) matched the width of others. You do have a point though about infoboxes having more vertical space. I'll consider it; thanks for the suggestion. --Paul_012 (talk) 20:37, 12 December 2012 (UTC)

Template:Infobox map[edit]

I reverted your edits to {{Infobox map}}. Neither {{Superimpose}} or {{Location mark+}} support a default parameter. The behavior of {{Superimpose}} is undefined when width is void. Please discuss changes to this template before committing them.

Bang-kok's kok, by Edmund Roberts[edit]

Edmund Roberts (diplomat) always hyphenates 'Bang-kok" in his journal, but not in his treaty. He put this footnote referring to a landing at the bottom of page 234 [digital image 241]:

* On the right bank of the river, which is called Bang-kok—the word Bang-kok is derived from ban, a house, and kok, a garden. Most of the fruit used at the old capital, came from this place.

Don't know where he got garden for kok. The on-line Royal Institute Dictionary (RID) for the noun กอก gives มะกอก and adds (มะกอกบ้าน หรือ มะกอกป่า ก็เรียก.) Nor do I know why he says "ban, a house" instead of bang. For bang RID has one definition as water tambon, or district. Note Bang- in central Thai place names always refers to a ban, in the sense of hamlet, on a riverbank or shore. Roberts also wrote:

The spot on which the present capital stands, and the country in its vicinity, on both banks of the river for a considerable distance, were formerly, before the removal of the court to its present situation, called Bang-kok ; but since that time, and for nearly sixty years past, it has been named Sia yuthia, (pronounced See-ah you-tè-ah, and by the natives, Krung, that is, the capital ;) it is called by both names here, but never Bang-kok ; and they always correct foreigners when the latter make this mistake. The villages which occupy the right hand of the river, opposite to the capital, pass under the general name of Bang-kok. [page 281, image 288.]

My wife says the capital was still called Krung when she was a child there, 40 years ago.—Pawyilee (talk) 15:55, 9 June 2013 (UTC)

PS: "Bang" was defined as "haven" in the only use of the word I've ever seen in Isan. It was in an English-language pamplet on the etymology of Mukdahan. It said "Muk" came from "Bang-Muk," a haven for clams on the right bank of the Mekong, across from Savannaket. Our article calls it Muk Creek (Thai: ห้วยมุก) instead.—Pawyilee (talk) 16:38, 9 June 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for the source. I'll try to work some of it into the article some time. --Paul_012 (talk) 02:18, 11 June 2013 (UTC)

I noticed I've done lots of crazy copy-and-paste edits for the last three months, this is because I don't have time to rewrite the pages, which I'm going to do it today, but now it's 3am in Vietnam so I may not done it within tonight.--DKH2010 (talk) 20:16, 17 June 2013 (UTC)

BMT paragraph and inaccuracy[edit]

"to undergo rapid development during 2004–09. The plan was approved by the cabinet on 7 September 2004, and consisted of the following extensions:

However, by 2008 only 41 kilometres (25 mi) of the proposed extensions had been constructed. The OTP accordingly made modifications to the plan in November 2008 to provide for a more suitable framework.[1]"

It is incorrect to say that by "2008 only 41kms of the proposed extensions had been constructed". The sentence refers to the plan adopted on 7 September 2004. By 2008 no extension had opened and only the 2.2km BTS Silom line ext to WWY had been constructed but had as yet not opened (May 2009). No proposed extensions as of the Sept 2004 had been constructed at all by 2008!

The sentence should either read "by 2008 no proposed extensions had been constructed". Or, "by 2008 the 41km of existing lines had not been extended nor no new lines added."

It is completely inaccurate hence why it was changed.

As an added point it should be highlighted that the 10 line plan was taken to the 2005 election and the PM promised to implement all lines by the end of the decade. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Yappofloyd (talkcontribs) 07:39, 18 June 2013 (UTC)

When changing a fact cited to a reference, please also replace the reference, because the new facts are no longer supported by the old ref. That's the inaccuracy I was referring to. --Paul_012 (talk) 07:58, 18 June 2013 (UTC)

HDI[edit]

I can't find Thai provinces HDI on the internet, but I found the similar index called HAI (Human Achievement Index), but the values are different. I did not write the HDI index, but I copied from the Provinces of Thailand article, it is already written.--DKH2010 (talk) 13:49, 18 June 2013 (UTC)

I have reverted all my own copy-and-paste edits to be honest, but I notice a lot of unsourced information, I would like you to help removing unsourced information on the article.--DKH2010 (talk) 13:55, 18 June 2013 (UTC)

I am not sure what you are trying to do now after I've looked through your contributions, you deleted everything I wrote and posted messages to admins. Isn't it ok to use layout from another article? I assume that, as long as the article is accurate, it is ok. I've tried reverting my own edits on many articles now.

As you are from Thailand, I would like you to try your best on editing articles about Thailand.

For the Thai license plates, I saw the IPs reverted back again while the negotiation has been finished, it should be done now. I don't want that either. I'm not saying you cannot edit.--DKH2010 (talk) 04:30, 19 June 2013 (UTC)

It's okay to copy from another article, but attribution has to be given as noted in WP:Copying within Wikipedia. Copying the layout is fine, but your copying content and replacing country names resulted in obviously wrong information. For example, when you created Thai national ID card, you mostly replaced "Malaysia" with "Thailand", which resulted in inaccuracies such as a link to MSC Thailand, which doesn't exist, and the claim that "Thailand became the first country in the world to use...", which of course is incorrect. Likewise, when you tried to create the Time in Cambodia article, you replaced Thaksin Shinawatra's name with Hun Sen's, resulting which also is plain wrong. The articles' content should have been written from scratch. --Paul_012 (talk) 21:50, 19 June 2013 (UTC)
I just want to change layout Malaysia -> Thailand -> Cambodia, lol. I don't know much info, or if I know i would change it. Actually we are going to edit soon, like what you did, remove false info. Example at List of Thai loanwords, it's not my job to correct, it's yours since you speak Thai.--DKH2010 (talk) 03:38, 20 June 2013 (UTC)

CNNgo as a ref[edit]

I would normally not use just any CNNGo article as a reference but in the case of "World's 50 best foods" for the Thai cuisine article, the poll was organised by the staff, and not a random CNNGo blogger. As such it seemed newsworthy enough to include into the article. Regards, - Takeaway (talk) 15:44, 19 June 2013 (UTC)

I have removed the HDI information on Nonthaburi Province article, the rest should be the same, only the formatting. I want it to be done with every province. The current infobox looks unprofessional. All informations should be the same.--DKH2010 (talk) 17:53, 19 June 2013 (UTC)

Bangkok City Scape[edit]

I am wondering why you removed the photo of the Silom area. The photo that it replaced is sub standard, low res and is for the most part the sky?

The photo that I used is High res, is representative of the "city scape" and far more reasonable of a photo then the one you restored. I see in your history that you do a lot of edits of Thailand and am wondering if you feel that night photo of the Silom area (Financial district) is NOT representative of the true cityscape of Bangkok, and readers would be better served looking at the clouds in the sky over Bangkok?? talk--WPPilot 10:16, 30 August 2013 (UTC)

I wasn't aware of that. I'm in Bangkok, but I haven't had much time for Wikipedia as of late. I believe there is (or was) a substantial community on the Thai Wikipedia, but few users seem to edit both here and there. (I don't.) --Paul_012 (talk) 10:57, 30 August 2013 (UTC)

I will bring this to the attention of Admins and request that other people provide perspective, you sir do not OWN the Bangkok pages, so please stop stalking my edits and contributions.

I will dis continue contributing to your pages about Thailand if you continue to stalk me. Use MY talk page if you have something to comment on, and please allow me to correct things that might be incorrect about the photos. I have a talk page that I read and it would be far less disruptive if you were able to communicate like a normal Wiki editor.--WPPilot 16:34, 31 August 2013 (UTC)

I have been doing professional photography for many years and my objective is to "always improve" everything that I edit. I am here for a week and plan to reshoot a number of pages. You are clearly an expert on this area and I am not opposed to suggestions, if you have any Paul. As you have seen I have been doing photos of Thailand for many years. I do have most of my equipment with me and would be happy to do anything (photographically) that I can to improve these Thai pages. Cheers.--WPPilot 20:41, 31 August 2013 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Doi Ang Khang, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Rai (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

Redlinked categories[edit]

I already do create the desired category sometimes, specifically if and when I am able to be sure that all of the following conditions are true:

  1. the category is genuinely warranted and appropriate (which is not always true, as people frequently add categories that are entirely nonsensical, badly named or far too narrow to ever be anything but an WP:OC#SMALL violation);
  2. it doesn't already exist at another name (which, again, is not always true); and
  3. I know enough about the topic to know what its correct category parentage is.

For example, just in the batch of "uncategorized articles" that I processed today, I personally created at least one new category and fixed the spelling on about a dozen redlinks where the only problem was that somebody had miscapitalized or misspelled some of the words. But if I can't answer yes to all three of those conditions, then I'm not going to directly create the new category as I can't necessarily be sure that I'm not creating unintended new problems in the process.

"Sala kan parian" or "sala kan prian"?[edit]

The wiki-link you re-added was wrong as it went to the Bueng Kan Township and not Province. Sentence grammar, and link have been corrected.

Ram Khamhaeng‎[edit]

I'm highly interested in why you just now up-graded this article to high importance, though my sense of what's currently going on in Thailand, does indeed make it so. I'm making suggestion on its Talk page. —Pawyilee (talk) 13:56, 5 June 2014 (UTC)

I actually downgraded it from Top-importance. I didn't think that reading about King Ram Khamhaeng as an individual was utterly essential to a reader's understanding of Thailand. --Paul_012 (talk) 16:19, 5 June 2014 (UTC)

Thailand coup article assessment[edit]

You have recently changed my assessment to "This article is fairly important to this project, as it covers a general area of knowledge." I think the article and the events are of top importance to Thailand and hence it's project on the Wikipedia. What is your opinion please? I think to say that coup and living under military rule is merely "fairly important" might be an understatement. Dmatteng (talk) 14:18, 5 June 2014 (UTC)

My line of thinking was that as this is somewhere between the 12th and 18th coup in Thailand (depending on how you count), and the second in less than a decade, in the grand scheme of things articles about individual coups like this one may not turn out to be as important to the reader's understanding of Thailand as, say, the summary article History of Thailand and its sub-articles. It's likely that by next year there won't be nearly as much interest in the topic any more. However, I hadn't considered that it may be appropriate to adjust an article's importance assessment as events progress and change. I won't oppose if you want to change it back to Top-importance for now. --Paul_012 (talk) 16:19, 5 June 2014 (UTC)
I agree with your line of reasoning. So I'll change it back to Top-importance for now, and we will reassess it if it will become "just another coup". One issue however, I have watched the Coup leader's speech in which he outlined his plan, and he insists that the reforms will be introduced under military rule, and he intends to step down in one-two years time (if I remember right). This period of time under military rule seems to be significant, and though I don't know the history of other coups this one seems to be different in this important aspect.

Scallop diagram improvement[edit]

Hi, Paul, I am contacting you regarding your very helpful comment on my Wikipedia:Featured picture candidates/Neural map of a giant scallop which is up for consideration as a featured picture. I have now added a "sub-diagram" to the diagram that shows the neural system suspended between the two valves of the scallop's body— I am hoping that having done this will encourage you to consider changing your Comment vote to a Support vote! The diagram only has about four more hours left for consideration, and it does not yet have enough Support votes to pass candidacy. Sp if you are willing to consider supporting my revised diagram, please don't wait even a minute, or the chance will be gone! THANK YOU AGAIN! KDS4444Talk 14:44, 9 August 2014 (UTC)

Wrong name of category[edit]

Note that in the future, if you make a category page with the wrong name, you can move it to the right name rather than creating a whole new page and tagging the old one for deletion. Jackmcbarn (talk) 15:23, 7 November 2014 (UTC)

Hello,

In my attempt to help the categorizers, I apparently erred in assigning categories to the above. Rather than cause difficulties, I will cease posting categories to my new articles, and leave that to the experts. I apologize for any difficulties my mistake may have caused you.

Yuan Phai[edit]

Hi, Paul. Thanks. I looked this up before posting the map. As far as I read it, Google actively encourages you to use Google Earth images on the net and elsewhere, but insists (quite reasonably) that the image includes their logo and their copyright claim. See http://www.google.com/permissions/geoguidelines.html. I adjusted the map I made to make sure it conformed to those conditions. So what's the problem?

Thanks for the Historical Park shot. I'd found that and planned to link it in later. Chrispasuk (talk) 01:09, 17 November 2014 (UTC) 1:07, 17 November 2014 (UTC)
