Phinumu, you are invited to the Teahouse
|Thanks so much for helping me with my /æ/ tensing table! I'm still grappling with wikitables and you've made it look a lot neater than my original. Much appreciated. Wolfdog (talk) 21:28, 30 June 2014 (UTC)|
- By the way, I've also inserted very similar (and similarly messy) tables onto the pages "Philadelphia dialect," "New York City English," and "Baltimore dialect" (though each table is tailored slightly differently for the corresponding article). If neatly formatting tables is something you enjoy, feel free to have a go at those ones as well. Great work! Wolfdog (talk) 21:38, 30 June 2014 (UTC)
- I have just redone those tables. Reformatting tables is not something I enjoy per se, but I generally can't bear to see anything untidy on a WP article. I'm not that great at wikitables myself; I usually have to find a table somewhere with the formatting I want and copy the formatting.
Hi. I see that you are currently in the process to rearrange and remove contents from various alphabet, orthography, phonology, language, and codepage related articles at large scale. Please note that changes at this significant scale and over so many articles require prior discussion on the corresponding article talk pages in order to establish a consensus to do so. It remains unclear what you were/are trying to accomplish, but the removal of previously valid contents is almost always controversial. Therefore, I ask you to stop these edits for now, raise discussions on the corresponding talk pages by proposing the changes you have in mind there and try to seek a consensus for them first. Thank you. --Matthiaspaul (talk) 23:57, 14 July 2014 (UTC)
- There is a discussion; see Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Linguistics#Language phonology and orthography articles. Feel free to contribute to the discussion. (suoı̣ʇnqı̣ɹʇuoɔ · ʞlɐʇ) nɯnuı̣ɥԀ 00:09, 15 July 2014 (UTC)
- Hi, Phinumu. Thanks for the link. Well, I saw this discussion before, but didn't realize, that you were taking part in it (probably because of the reversed script in your signature). ;-)
- I'm sure you will be able to sort out a good solution with the other participants in the project.
- What I object to is the removal of contents such as the codepage information in the case of the Polish articles. (I haven't checked the other language articles, but if you removed similar information there as well, please put it back in or revert your rearrangements as a whole until a real consensus can be found.)
- For copyright reasons, please also take care of WP:PROMERGE, WP:MERGETEXT, WP:FMERGE, WP:SMERGE and WP:PROSPLIT when moving contents around via copy&paste. Thanks and greetings. --Matthiaspaul (talk) 17:10, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
- I didn't actually remove the codepage information; I put it in a hidden table (see Other encodings). Most of what I removed from the articles was either redundant or probably unnecessary (I figured if it was that necessary, it could be added back in). I might re-merge the Polish articles, redirecting the code pages article to the relevant section. (suoı̣ʇnqı̣ɹʇuoɔ · ʞlɐʇ) nɯnuı̣ɥԀ 18:50, 16 July 2014 (UTC)

Talysh Language Edit
Hello, I'm the author of a PhD on the Talysh language, which I added to the Talysh Language Wikipedia page earlier this year in the further reading section. So far as I can see you edited this reference (and removed it?), so I'm wondering if I'm right about that and, if so, if you could explain your thinking?
Thanks and best wishes,
- I didn't remove it. It appears that User:Kwamikagami did; see here. pʰeːnuːmuː → pʰiːnyːmyː → ɸinimi → fiɲimi 22:30, 6 October 2014 (UTC)
- Sorry about that. It got caught up in a revert of someone who added a bunch of Kurdish. I'll put it back. — kwami (talk) 03:05, 7 October 2014 (UTC)
