Bonjour Monsieur, est-ce que vous êtes Francophile aussi? Je voudrais vous attribuer cette décoration pour vos contributions merveilleuses à Wikipédia. Izehar 16:58, 9 January 2006 (UTC)


You're an experienced user and maybe don't need this, but anyway. I mostly agree with your edits on UNMIK, but could you in future, when switching places of paragraphs and sections, switch them in one edit, and then edit them in another edit? This is because when switching places diffs could hardly be seen, and this could be frustrating, especially if an article could be expected to be a target of POVing.

Ituri image[edit]


It's been a long time since I've been as happy to see an image as I was to see Image:Région Ituri République démocratique du Congo.png. I've already put it on four other articles. Thanks for making it. Cheers, BanyanTree 00:06, 16 January 2006 (UTC)

Hi QuartierLatin, Just as a matter of interest, what's your basic stance on the issue of Quebec independance? Are you for it or against it? (I'm honestly not looking to get into an argument - just interested!) Brian 12:15, 1 February 2006 (UTC)

Obviously the question is very complex. Québec is a nation, and independence is an option that belongs to it by right. On the other hand, I think it would be unwise for the Québécois to try to establish an independent state on the basis of a 51% yes vote. The real contest will be for the allegiance of the enfants du loi 101 – once they can be won to the notion that Québec, not Canada, is their nation, then the battle's won. For selfish reasons, I also like Québec in Confederation because they're a good example to the rest of the country. Canada has built its unique social model in part thanks to the influence of Québec labour unions, student groups, feminists, and so on. (In the event of sovereignty, I do think that Nunavik and perhaps James Bay should have the option of becoming a new Canadian territory, should they so desire.) But to answer your question more directly, if I were a Québécois and I were voting in the next referendum on sovereignty, I would vote yes. QuartierLatin1968 El bien mas preciado es la libertad 16:07, 1 February 2006 (UTC)

OK, I'll admit for reasons that will become clear that my question was a slightly loaded one, although I have to absolutely stress that I'm not looking to get into a debate, and nomatter what your answer to this second question may be, I'll not respond in anyway other than to thank you for answering! - I just want to give food for thought, as is the nature of encyclopedias! I noticed on your Userpage that you say you're an Irish Republican. If Quebec is distinct from the rest of Canada and therefore a plausible candidate for independence, why would you want to lump Northern Ireland (with its own distinct culture and history) in with the Republic of Ireland? Would you not prefer to advocate self-determination rather than Republicanism? Brian 18:12, 1 February 2006 (UTC)

Aha! All becomes clear. :-) You're right, Northern Ireland (and in particular, the northeast of Ireland) is culturally quite different from the South. Indeed, I can see an argument for believing the "British" community of Northern Ireland to be a distinct 'Protestant Irish nation'. But remember that if there is a 'Protestant Irish nation', these are nations living side by side, in every county and town of Northern Ireland. You cannot separate them; no line of partition would satisfy. The current border's a mess: why is Derry cut off from Donegal, a clear part of its natural hinterland? why is Newry in NI? why are Monaghan and Armagh in different countries? But you can't split the difference either; the result would be equally vexing.
So there's an overarching need for Orange/Green reconciliation, first and foremost. You cannot build a United Ireland on the basis of support from only one community, any more than it has been possible to build a United Kingdom on the basis of only one community. This is why the Good Friday Agreement is essential: it creates a different dynamic from the "either Dublin or London" mentality and challenges people of both communities to imagine themselves with common institutions and symbols. And this is why the process has stalled: faced with that challenge, both Unionists and Republicans have balked, held back, delayed, tried to hang on to their old fiefs and shibboleths. But that process must go on, sacred cows notwithstanding, because the Union won't work without reconciliation and neither will a United Ireland.
There's also the fact tacitly admitted by everybody, at least in unguarded moments, that the 'Protestant Irish nation' or (as it self-identifies) the British community is rooted in Ireland. This is what's unique and special about the Ulster British: their roots are in Scotland and England but they've developed their own definite community characteristics on the soil of Ireland. And as an outsider looking in (I'm a North American of [Northern] Irish descent), it amazes me how much is strikingly similar about both sides – how much is Irish, if you like, in the British community; how much is Scottish in the local Irish community, and so on. Tim Collins makes a similar point about the experience of Irish soldiers (from North and South) serving together overseas.
I don't get that feeling much about Québec. You can't set foot in that country without feeling yourself to be in a very different place from English Canada – a nation all its own. Its literature, cinema, cuisine, music – everything is just so distinct. I love it, but it's not mine. As Duceppe always says of Québec, ni supérieur ni inférieur mais différent. It's a different scenario from Ireland.
So I do support the principle of consent, as do practically all Irish Republicans nowadays. Cross-community reconciliation is the sine qua non – but at the end of the day, I think that people across the island will recognize that more unites them than divides them. (But I also think Ireland has much more in common with Scotland, and other parts of Britain, than is typically admitted in nationalist circles.) QuartierLatin1968 El bien mas preciado es la libertad 18:49, 1 February 2006 (UTC)

Well I have to say that I am definately impressed! For someone not from the province you certainly have a clear grasp of the situation here. I really appreciate your taking the time to answer, and so thoroughly too! Just one point of clarification I would make, though! The vast majority (myself being in the minority) of the Protestants that I know would not classify themselves as Irish because they identify that word with Irish Republicanism and ofcourse the Republic of Ireland. Even the term Northern Irish isn't often heard, which means that most people simply identify themselves as British. (Even the logical halfway house British Irish doesn't get heard!) I wonder what they'd call themselves if the United Kingdom were to dissolve?! Anyway, cheers for that input, dude! Slán leat, Brian 19:51, 1 February 2006 (UTC)

Hey, thanks, man! It's great to have confirmation from somebody that I'm not totally off my nut! :-) Well, what can I say, I listen to Talk Back. Thank heaven for the BBC in bringing the world together! (You know, your government ought to tax us foreigners; they're providing a brilliant service to us for free.) But yeah – thanks for listening to my thoughts with patience and an open mind.

Constitutional staus[edit]

God no - that's why I put it up. If I was going to clean it up, then I would just get on with it. If you think the article's OK, then remove the tag - that article just seemed more like an essay than an encyclopaedia article to me. --Latinus (talk (el:)) 20:22, 3 February 2006 (UTC)

Revolutionary Voting[edit]

Bonjour Q, I've given my vote for what it's worth. I just hope there's enough traffic to that article to warrant this quarrel! On a different note, do athiests say adieu?! Brian 22:25, 4 February 2006 (UTC)

Hey Brian, thanks for voting! Haha, do I come off as too emotional about this? Isn't it funny how Wikipedia brings out the petty side in all of us? What happened was, I moved this page to Prachanda after giving it some thought, and about an instant later TJive reverts me. And I think to myself, what on earth is going on here? So we argue on each other's talk pages for awhile and I end up giving up in the name of keeping the peace. I wouldn't have revisited the matter if this other guy, DanielM hadn't come along saying he agreed with what had been my position. But it's true, more effort has been expended in thinking about where this article should be, than what should go in it. Sad, sad. QuartierLatin1968 El bien mas preciado es la libertad 22:47, 4 February 2006 (UTC) PS: Adieu is but the tip of the iceberg. Our own "goodbye" is supposed to come from "God be wi' ye". So God can't really be purged from ordinary conversation.
Why supposedly?! It's derived from "God by ye" (with the meaning of, as you rightly say, God be with you). And the Irish for "hello" is día duit (pronounced "jee-a ditch"), which means "God to you", so it looks like He's really got a monopoly in the greetings business! Brian 22:58, 4 February 2006 (UTC)

Hebrides map[edit]

Hello Quartier and thank you for the star! Some users here have actually not been afraid to say how dreadful my maps are; so it's nice to have some recognition. Thanks!

Heart Sutra[edit]

Check out the devanagari on Heart Sutra. Is that what you wanted? deeptrivia (talk) 21:45, 24 February 2006 (UTC)

Bonjour!!! Hey, I was just reading the Heart Sutra page, I believe there's something wrong with the transliteration of this sentence:

पारसंगते Pārasamgate [pɑːɾəsəm gəteː] Completely gone beyond

If I recall my sanskrit classes correctly, the anusvāra over letter "sa" is not supposed to be pronounced as a full "m", but rather as a nasalized one, much in the way the "n" is pronounced in French "painture". So, in Latin script that "m" should have a dot over it to show it is a "cerebral" consonant, and in IPA I've seen examples when this kind of sounds are written with a tilde: ã

Au revoir! (addendum: sorry, forgot to sing :) TrollDeBatalla )

You could be right. But in Hindi, at least, the nasal vowel is indicated with a candrabindu, not an anusvāra. If you're right about the Sanskrit, though, the IPA would indeed be ə̃. QuartierLatin1968 El bien mas preciado es la libertad 16:51, 27 February 2006 (UTC)

Celtic Europe[edit]

I sure know the criterion of the Celtic League, etc. but it does not just satisfy many people in Europe :) Can you please bother yourself to make a brief research about the Celticity claim of Friuli. I thought the user who produced those dreadful maps was a Friulian Celtophile but he came out to be Dutch. On the other hand, there is a related discussion on the article Europe. Perhaps you may get interested. Best Regards...Behemoth 00:18, 4 March 2006 (UTC)

Burnt Church First Nation site[edit]

Thank you for your initial work on the entry for Burnt Church First Nation! I go out there frequently and even look forward to living out that way soon. I was wondering if you would mind if I returned your reference to Burnt Church being near New Jersey as opposed to your Neguac reference - New Jersey is more correct, actually. I would like to add much to the site and feel I could be a real help there. I would even employ some of my friends there to make sure I get things right. I have made much use of Wikipedia and now I guess I have a place to give back some. Obviously, I am a newbie to boot, so thank you for your patience with my inquiry. -- Esgenoopetitj 05:13, 8 March 2006 (UTC)

The Maritimes[edit]

C'est bon! We'll have to stay in touch. God willing I'll be living out there someday soon. 'Tis a different land on the bluffs of the Miramichi Bay and I have seen pics from my Aunt that Nova Scotia seems to be similar in geography. But man! do I love it out there! I'm here in Michigan-land, 700+ ft. above sea level on the freshwater Great Lakes. There is something different about sea level and salt water! (I was brought up in Aylmer, Ontario and my father's family is from Searchmont, Ontario and "the Soo" - Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, hence, this Canadian connection.) Do you have an interest in First Nations people? Or how did you start out to setting up the Maritime First Nations lists?

And thanks for the idea of how to sign my talk edits (I'll have to work out the form yet). I'll keep learning, and be a good Wikipedian! I won't mind critique and tutorial along the way. Merci !!! -- Esgenoopetitj 17:32, 9 March 2006 (UTC)

Native Cornish[edit]

yes it is for me. i still feel that you are applying an excessively limited concept of the term "native" (reradless of whether it afects Ken George or not, which, I believe, is neither here nor there). you seem to assume that "nativeness" is based on where a person happens to be born, part of the ius solis tradition. other criteria also exist in law, however, such as ius sanguis, so that, for example, third generation galizans are considered galizan to all efects and purposes by the administration whether or not either they, or indeed eitheir of their parents, were actually born in galiza (as is the case, in fact, for several hundred thoudans of people). may i also suggest that, for example, someone born in india but who has spent all of their life, or the best part of it, living and working in cornall and especially for the advancement of cornall would certainly, to my mind at least, be worthy of the title "native of cornwall". this is rather an open concept and need not be applied based on the narrowest interpretaion available, ie. where someone happens to be born. if that needs to be done, ie. sorting poeple based on their place of birth, may i suggest changing the name of the category to the rather simpler and less controversial "people born in cornwall"? Neal [1]

from talk:Celtic nations[edit]

It's a pity you endorse split infinitives and preposition endings in sentences though :( My biggest bother (besides the Americanisation of the New Zealand dialect and accent) is the use of the singular to reflect plural, such as "there's lots of cats". What's 'heteroflexible'? Enzedbrit 07:34, 18 March 2006 (UTC)

Enzedbrit, that last seems to me to be totally unrelated to the issue. But if you think those are problems, reword them so that they're more pleasing to you. However, QuartierLatin's grammatical preferences are of no relevance to the validity of his edits...especially comments about his user page. Those are best kept to his user talk page. That criticism aside, I'm glad we were able to resolve the map issue for now. Way to go, Quartier. -GlamdringCookies 18:29, 18 March 2006 (UTC)

For the record, no offence was taken; although I agree, these comments probably are more at home here on my talk page than on talk:Celtic nations. QuartierLatin1968 El bien mas preciado es la libertad 03:52, 19 March 2006 (UTC)

Sectarianism edit[edit]

Why POV? (Keltik)[edit]

Because to use reclaimed assumes that it was faithfully reacreating something that had before existed.

Hi, you contribute very well to Wikipedia. But as I was looking for a Gaulish God named Ivaros (Ivaos), I didn't find him. I'd like to have some information about him, where can I search? Thanks —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Bmarnice (talkcontribs) .


Hey QuartierLatin, I just wanted to say that I love all the work you've been doing on the Celtic nations page and perhaps (I forget, they blur together in my memory of my watchlist) Modern Celts too. Just wanted to request, though, that you are a little more respectful to people's submissions. For example, today there was the post that you essentially reverted (appropriately, for sure) and cited some of its content as "rubbish". While respect isn't on the rules for talk pages, being polite is included in the etiquette page. I repeat, I have never disagreed with your altering of the Celtic nations page, but it would be great if you could be just a bit more respectful. I'm sure that you assume good faith, but just keep in mind that being too harsh with people's submissions can hurt their feelings (even if they are unregistered). Keep up the wonderful editing, -GlamdringCookies 21:51, 22 June 2006 (UTC)


Would you consider removing the flag image from your signature? The signature guideline is strongly against it, as being distracting, vulnerable to vandalism, and an unnecessary load on the servers. Of course there's no reason to go back and re-edit old talk pages, but if you would consider going forth with a streamlined signature, I'm sure many would appreciate it, including myself. -- nae'blis (talk) 01:39, 6 July 2006 (UTC)

Image on Template:BrazImpFam[edit]

Hi. Images on such templates are really better off reduced. They are not the "stars" of the template. Did you notice that the resizing you did is throwing off the title of the template? It's not centralized and unevenly distributed in the header. I settled on 25px because (a) it doesn't disturb the template's title, and (b) it is a [deliberately] minimal size that will maintain the image visible enough, but without causing those problems I mentioned in my previous edit. I'm no genius in wiki code, but I figure we can only keep the new size if the problem with it throwing off the header can be solved somehow. If you can do that, ok, but if not, we'll have to go back to the previous size, since, as I said, images are really secondary in the template, and we can only use them if, and to the extension where, they don't disturb the template itself (layout included).
Furthermore, I noticed you replaced the image. As far as I can tell, it seems to be the exact same image only in PNG format. But in case I missed something, and the images are not exactly the same, the previous one was a result of a debate about the historical accuracy of the image to be in the template, since the image that used to be there wasn't completely accurate regarding the colors used in the Royal Family's crest. Regards, Redux 02:37, 6 July 2006 (UTC)

It's no problem at all. We are all working to improve the project. Your adaptation seems to work. It's not really important which side of the template the image is on. And you are in fact right about the PNG format being preferred over JPG. As I said, we would only go back to the previous format if the PNG image were not identical to the JPG file, due to the historical accuracy issue. I squinted some, and it seems that the images are identical, which would mean that the PNG image should stay. Perhaps you can confirm my "diagnosis", by comparing the two images. As a matter of fact, I will delete the JPG file from our servers for being a duplicate file of the [preferred] PNG image, but I'd like to be completely positive about that, since image deletion is the one Administrative action that is not reversible through the software (someone would need to re-upload the image if we were to need it again for any reason). Cheers, Redux 17:18, 6 July 2006 (UTC)

Re: Lamiae[edit]

firstly, let me say that you're right to question the source of that. after writing it, to be fair, i started questioning it, since it wasn't so glossed by Romans, but by Irish monks commenting on Latin texts.

the very first instance of the word "morrigan" in an Irish text is in "manuscript Regina No. 215 in a gloss of Isaiah 34.14, a passage which recounts the desolation of Edom. Lamia is there glossed monstrum in femine figura .i. morigain ‘monster in female form, that is, a morrígan’ (Stokes and Strachan 1901: I.2.6). The codex was written in 876 or 877 A.D.." (as cited in Angelique Gulermovich Epstein, War Goddess electronic edition (1998), Chapter One "The Morrígan in Mythological Tradition", page 2). Epstein goes on to document a number of other instances in which "Lamia" or "Lamiae" is glossed as "Morrígan" or vice versa.

also, apparently i forgot to include the signature, so i'll do that now: Whateley23 11:53, 27 September 2006 (UTC)


  • Not neccessarily, Rumelia is a geographical and historical region, Rum province was an administrative region of the ottoman empire whereas Rum refers to a (more or less) ethnic connotation.. Over the centuries Rum was used to mean peoples of the ancient Byzantine Empire (particularly for Greeks). The ottoman sultan who conquered constantinople titled himself Kaiser-i Rum, meaning the ceasar of the romans..

History of Shaivism to History of Saivism[edit]

This is a naive question to be sure because I have little knowledge of the subject, but shouldn't "History of Shaivism" be changed to "History of Saivism" because "saivism" is used throughout the article? Outlook 14:21, 4 October 2006 (UTC)

Re Shaivism vs. Saivism[edit]

Thanks for your response. I understand. My interest is consistency. Again from a naive viewpoint regarding the subject, wouldn't it be more consistent then to spell all instances of "Saivism" as "Shaivism" in view that most readers—I assume, always dangerous to do—can't view the accent?

Arabs in Turkey[edit]

Hi! I noticed you made some changes to the Arabs in Turkey article, specifically the part where you changed "Alevi" to "ʿAlawis". I wasn't sure whether the original article was referring to the Alevi or Alawite, as they're different religious groups. Perhaps you know which one? Thanks in advance. —Khoikhoi 23:42, 7 October 2006 (UTC)

No, I agree with you now, we shouldn't mention any other alternate spellings in the article because it would only confuse readers. Thanks for the explanation. —Khoikhoi 04:29, 8 October 2006 (UTC)

Template talk:Celtic mythology[edit]

I posted this at the above, but got no responses. In case you or others are not watching that page:

If this template is about Celtic religion now (used to by Celtic Mythology), and we have a category for *ancient* Celtic religion, might it make sense to include a *brief* section on modern Celtic religion? I'd suggest listing Celtic Reconstructionism and possibly modern versions of Celtic Christianity (but I think there have been some conflicts over those articles). However, I think it would only work to include modern religion if it can be kept pretty strictly limited and not include any of the non-Celtic traditions that mistakenly get called "Celtic". Otherwise, it might make sense to change the template back to mythology. Thoughts? --Kathryn NicDhàna 22:47, 22 October 2006 (UTC)

World Cattle Population[edit]

I know this is a bit out-of-date now, but I just noticed your request for figures at Talk:Cattle#Cattle population, and thought I would share these data: the FAOSTAT[2] world profile gives 1,529,110,000 for Cattle and Buffaloes; other pages of interest are (1993-2003 statistics for various animals), (estimates 1.3 billion and gives some info on geographic distribution).

Hey Quartier, some major problems have been introduced over at the Boann article. I've made a dent, and flagged it for cleanup, since I might not be able to slog through it soon. The changes were initially reverted, but are back now. Some of the information added may be ok, but some of it is rather problematic in terms of sourcing and accuracy. Other problems are that inherent contradictions and stylistic problems have been introduced. If you don't have a chance to get to it any time soon, I'll do it eventually, but would like another pair of eyes on it. Tapadh Leat, ~ Kathryn NicDhàna 21:29, 7 January 2007 (UTC)

Ideas on the problem of North India, West India and East India[edit]

I have good ideas for the resolution of the problem of determination of the N, E, W, Indias and I am also native to the gangetic plains. But I am new to wiki. Can you please tell me how to put up my article for review?

A long-delayed "huh?"[edit]

I'd forgotten to bring this up months ago, but my memory got jogged: Can you please explain your edit here, which had the nonsensical edit summary of "Matrona doesn't derive from Matrona, it is Matrona"? I'm guessing that the software must have done something to your edit summary, because I don't think you would have written something that weird. — SMcCandlish [talk] [cont] ‹(-¿-)› 15:46, 15 April 2007 (UTC)

TfD nomination of Template:*[edit]

Template:* has been nominated for deletion. You are invited to comment on the discussion at the template's entry on the Templates for Deletion page. Thank you. — If you have any questions, please contact me at my talk page. Ian Manka 21:42, 19 September 2007 (UTC)

I want to apologize. That was a real asshole comment and I wish to apologize. I was disappointed that my evidence for arguing that it should be redirected to the bullet template was drying up (despite the fact that the fixes were good for Wikipedia) and I (unwisely and unfounded-ly[?]) took it out on you. I suppose I felt so strongly about my position, that I was going to fight to the death to make sure I got my way (real selfish and immature). I should have assumed good faith and just explained politely about the change in the amount of pages that misused the template. Civility is no "small thing" -- it is one of the five pillars of editing Wikipedia. Hopefully, you'll accept my apology. Thanks for your contributions to Wikipedia, and I hope you continue to contribute. If you have any questions, please contact me at my talk page. Ian Manka 23:18, 27 September 2007 (UTC)

Language Cleanup[edit]

Thank you so much for taking this on! Also, if you get a chance to look at French Wikipedia, the Celtic articles are generally in a dire state. My French is good enough to see the dreadful mistakes, but not good enough to write stellar, sourced prose to replace them. In particular, there are pervasive theological errors. The Brighid article says (last time I looked) that Brighid is the Great Mother Goddess, and all other Celtic Goddesses are her avatars/manifestations, or something. Similar approaches have been taken with some of the Gods. I think taking care of these mistakes (which in most cases can be accomplished easily enough by translating from the English language versions we have here) is rather important. Thanks again for all the good work you're doing! Tapadh Leat - Kathryn NicDhàna 00:32, 12 October 2007 (UTC)

Move of Scottish kings[edit]

There is a proposed move of Scottish kings at Talk:Kenneth I of Scotland that I thought I'd bring to your attention. I think you have had things to say on this subject in the past. Probably won't be successful, but that's wiki for you. Best regards, Deacon of Pndapetzim (Talk) 17:28, 2 January 2008 (UTC)


Hello Quartier Latin
Well I wanted to talk about the discussion on, Erecura, a Celtic goddess. You wrought something about it quite a while ago. You than mentioned two inscriptions about Erecura in Africa you thought were made bye merchants or soldiers. As I'm Currently working on the topic, I had informations concerning the two inscriptions from Africa. First, that's what they say
1) Terrae Matr[i] / (H){a}erecurae(!) Ma/tri deum Mag/nae Ideae / Popiliae M(arci) f(ilia) / Maxima tauro/bolium aram / posuit movit / fecit
2) Terrae Matr[i] / Eraecurae M[a]/tri Magnae Id[e]/ae P(ublius) Sextilius / C(ai) f(ilius) Quir(ina) Ho/noratus tau/ripolium(!) et creobolium / movit(!) et fecit / aramque po/[suit]

I don't know if you understand Latin, you probably do but, I translated it in French :
1) A la mère de la terre, Herecura. A la grande mère Idéenne des dieux, Popilia Maxima, fille de Marcus a réalisé un taurobole et a posé un autel.
2) A la mère de la terre, Herecura. A la grande mère Idéenne. Publius Sextilius Honoratus, fils de Caius, de la tribu des Quirinia a fait un taurobole et un Criobole, il a posé un autel.

The point is, there is a few things that make me think that the inscriptions were made bye romans living in Africa, not merchants as you said but i could be wrong. First, The name of the woman Popiliae M(arci) f(ilia) / Maxima was found on another inscription in Thibilis, on whom only the name is readable. The second element is the Quirina tribe after the man's name, many on the romans living in Africa were originally from that tribe, under Augustus, claudius, Hadrianus and Antoninus, colonization was organized from the Quirina tribe to Africa. Also, Another inscription From Sigus, Numidia, not that far from Thibilis mentions a Magna Mater priest named "Lucius Clodiux Luci filius Quirina tribu Honoratus" As the other inscription was also refering to Magna Mater, we may think they were from the same family If you have read anything about the fact that it could be merchants that came and made the inscription, plz let me know where.

P.S. : sorry for the mistakes, I am french speaker. You can reply here or on the french wiki

Jerminel (talk) 10:41, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

As you said, I have no Idea how Erecura came over from Europe. And I haven't hear of any other inscriptions with both Goddess even in Europe. (I with others, are currently having a Seminar about the inscriptions on Magna Mater all around the roman world and I am to analyze Numidia)
My opinion is that the once who made these inscription could be colons who came from Gaul and came over with their believes. I don't know if we'll ever have the clue...
Jerminel (talk) 17:28, 4 March 2008 (UTC)
Euh, i wanted to ask... Where did you read about the inscriptions in Numidia ?
Jerminel (talk) 16:38, 5 March 2008 (UTC)
I think as in Gaul, the Numids still have some of their own gods but I am not that sure. I'll have a look at a book I know this afternoon at the library but I do think they keep theirs gods and believes. Jerminel (talk) 11:43, 6 March 2008 (UTC)
I made an index of the inscriptions on the godess and I do have the text 20 of them. That's all there is atm I think. Donno If you are interested in having it.

New Netherland[edit]

Hoi! I noticed that you reverted the citation style of reference 7 (Ruttenber) from automatic formatting via the "cite-template" to manual formatting. Was there something wrong with the citation? I am asking since I started to fix the reference style in the article. At the moment they use all kinds of style (citation templates, manual formatting, just weblinks,...). To get a uniform look (and because I don't want to think about formatting) my plan was to use cite-templates everywhere. If that's a bad idea, please let me know, so that I don't waste energy on conversion. bamse (talk) 14:05, 6 March 2009 (UTC)

Celtic Luxembourg[edit]

Hello QL. I am replying to an ancient comment of yours I just found on the Celtic Luxembourg talk page. You wondered whether development could be combined with your article on Treveri. My starting point was to emphasize the fact that the Celts had been very much in evidence in what is now Luxembourg, particularly in the Titelberg area. I see that not only have you covered this in your own interesting article on the Treveri but that you have added a short section on the Treveri in the Luxembourg article. For me, this seems to have solved the problem. Sorry about not getting back to you earlier but I don't watch all my talk pages. -- Ipigott (talk) 11:34, 21 March 2010 (UTC)

Template: Praenomina[edit]

Please stop adding this template to all articles about individual praenomina, and deleting the "see also" link back to the main Praenomen article. These articles were carefully written and organized as a group, and have been carefully maintained since that time. Substantial revisions to the entire class should not have been undertaken without any discussion. I also feel that the trichotomy of "common," "less common," and "obscure" misstates the actual relationship of the various praenomina to one another across time and place, with the risk of misleading the reader, and that abbreviations should not be mixed with unabbreviated praenomina. I am willing to discuss a revised version of this template, but think it should be substantially modified before being applied to the entire class of articles. P Aculeius (talk) 06:33, 13 January 2013 (UTC)

You wrote "I know that the English Wikipedia tends to interpret WP:UE aggressively; this would make the natural and obvious choice—leaving the name untranslated— less likely to survive.". If you read WP:UE, you should have noticed, that If there are too few reliable English-language sources to constitute an established usage, follow the conventions of the language appropriate to the subject (German for German politicians...). And that's all we need. The arbitrary translations für South Tyrolean parties (by a single user!) have no authorative english sources and actually lead to confusion. If the policy gets applied (agressively), we have to accept the original proper noun and should not try to translate it.

Would you care to offer an explanation for reverting my edit regarding distances in Canadian English? We're not really "measuring" when we say that a place is two hours away. "Reckoning" is exactly what we're doing. As for the other part of that edit, it improves the clarity and structure of the sentence. Q·L·1968 16:48, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

People in Canada, despite the fact that official documentation being in L/100kms, use MPG more often than not, and Ontario is not like the prairies, it is more diverse than that, and regional variations occur, what happens in the Ottawa valley, or the Golden Horse Shoe, for example, is not a provincial standard. Reckon does not read very well, and the wording was fine as it was.--Notwillywanka (talk) 01:55, 13 March 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the explanation. I've heard distances on the road reckoned in hours almost exclusively in the Golden Horseshoe, but you're right that that doesn't prove how things are done in the Ottawa Valley, or, for that matter, up north. I have noticed that the Canadian English article seems a bit unbalanced towards the Prairies at the moment, however. In the future, perhaps, the article can be expanded with more examples and citations from Ontario, BC, and especially the Maritimes and Newfoundland, whose own linguistic diversity may be worth particular attention. (I still think that "reckon" is the right word for that circumstance, but it's not worth feuding over.) Q·L·1968 17:09, 13 March 2014 (UTC)
