Automotive changes[edit]

Thank you for reverting some of 82.42.151.164's changes. I found many errors with them, too, although I must say the user's Belgian, Swiss and Dutch information is quite useful. Stombs 05:54, Jan 1, 2005 (UTC)


Mazda 323[edit]

Are you sure that photo of the Ford Activa is a 1990? It looks an awful lot like a 2000 or newer Mazda Protege... Oh, and welcome to Wikipedia! --SFoskett 04:16, Jan 6, 2005 (UTC)

Good thoughts on the Opel/GM thing. I think we should use "Opel" since that's the "master" version of the cars, and since the "General Motors Astra" doesn't exist... But welcome to the auto-nut fold! --SFoskett 14:20, Jan 10, 2005 (UTC)


Holden Zafira[edit]

I am 100 per cent certain about the Zafira having been officially sold in New Zealand and having witnessed many on the roads. I'm not sure why you have never seen them on the local site though I recall at one time it was not updated properly. I went in once to look for a certain model that had been launched and it wasn't there.

One user (not me) made an early edit of the Holden page indicating that the Zafira was available in New Zealand, too, so I am not alone.

Here is a reasonably authoritative New Zealand page where the Zafira is road-tested: http://xtramsn.co.nz/motoring/0,,6429-1355700,00.html. It had a retail price of $39,990 in 2002. Stombs 08:55, Jan 11, 2005 (UTC)

Ford Sierras in Brazil[edit]

You are right: they weren't Brazilian, but Argentinian (source: World Cars and Auto Katalog). Slight confusion, though this may have been caused by a contemporary American report about Brazilian imports, which was obviously wrong. I'll make the changes. Stombs 08:55, Jan 11, 2005 (UTC)

UK telephone numbering plan#Crown Dependencies[edit]

Re your edit:

  • It repeats stuff from the top of the article - does it need to be said twice?
  • Guernsey phones, if I read the BT Archive website aright have always been independant - I don't know about their postal service.
  • Surely the real reason they are in the UK numbering plan is that it is simpler and cheaper for them than getting their own ISD code. Cf. Liechenstein which hangs on to the Swiss network or Vatican City and San Marino off the Italian.

Would you care to re-word slightly?

It would nice to see a bit in User:Quiensabe about who you are, where you are, etc. - though I will excuse you the mug-shot you are certainly allowed that much anonimity. RHaworth 12:34, 2005 Jan 15 (UTC)

Thanks for that. Next question: do you by any remote chance know where I could find a copy of the UK Telephone Charge Groups Map? My copy is crap - but I still have the cheek to put it on the Web. RHaworth 03:25, 2005 Jan 17 (UTC)

Opel Ascona[edit]

Hi Quiensabe: I have reinstated my information on the Chevrolet Chevair and the Vauxhall Manta at the above page and I'm a little unsure why it was deleted. You are right, of course, about the Chevrolet Ascona, which from memory was only a 1.6, while the Chevair had a larger engine—that I have retained. Opel did indeed sell the Manta in the UK but eventually (as I stated) it became the Vauxhall Manta. Stombs 06:55, Jan 20, 2005 (UTC)

Thank you for putting me right on that. I apologize: just checked a period Autocar and you are quite correct on the non-existence of the Vauxhall Manta—indeed it was the last Opel-badged car in the UK. I will make the correction once Wikipedia behaves itself and allows edits through. Stombs 00:44, Jan 21, 2005 (UTC)

Tetun[edit]

your edit on Portuguese language was not accurate. Tetun follows phonetical caracteristics and not the Portuguese ortography. In Portugal "reconstrucção" is spoken has "reconstrusão", the "c" is mute. -Pedro 02:37, 4 May 2005 (UTC)

Shit, it is also spelled "reconstrução".Velho 03:05, 11 December 2005 (UTC)
  • I didnt ommit, i reverted it. I just saw you removed a lot of info. You can readd. But honestly to Portugal any problem has reached. I know that when they choose Portuguese the Indonesian speakers didnt like it a lot. But I think that is part of the past. I also know some Australians want to be the next Indonesians. -Pedro 10:20, 21 May 2005 (UTC)

Quiensabe, you once more removed information from the article: http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=History_of_East_Timor&diff=0&oldid=14339215. And altered to a complete different thing. Why's that? The number of speakers is important. And its massive growth is also important, you should readd that. Plus, the Portuguese and Brazilian teachers were in East Timor to support Timorese teachers. Everyone (even numbers) says their mission was successful, except you. Why did you removed it again? -Pedro 01:41, 28 May 2005 (UTC)

Quiensabe, the native language that is spoken in East Timor is called Tetum, not Tetun. - (Aidan Work 00:22, 20 November 2005 (UTC))

I didn't write that, Pedro did! Quiensabe 16:35, 4 April 2006 (UTC)

Rhodesia[edit]

Hey, if you're interested, have a look at my Southern Rhodesia draft, and feel free to edit it as you see fit; I esp. need help with the 1888-1923 period — otherwise it is (and has been for nearly a year) mostly finished. Also, you might be interested to glance at the Central African Federation article that I authored a few months ago (and also edit it as you see fit). Regards, El_C 22:05, 10 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Yang di-Pertuan Negara[edit]

It is to my understanding, that the governor has little representation in this article, the article is regarding the Yang di-Perturn Negara, which has little relation with the governor as politically-corrected in 1959. As for the first Yang di-Pertuan Negara, it was indeed Sir William Goode, of which I have omitted accidentally. However, its worth to be noted that Sir William Goode was sworn in to become the first head of state before democratic election, which under contexts I have referred, do not consider Singapore the State of Singapore, but still a crown colony.

As for the correction you have made, there is no 1959 constitution, but a revised version of 1955, of which was based on the recommendations of the Renden Commission.

As for your comments, it was our honour to have Sir William Goode as our last British head of state; he had himself propagated the independence of Singapore. Slivester 09:06, 30 August 2005 (UTC)

Canadian Citizenship[edit]

I noticed your change on the history of Canadian citizenship. It's not quite correct to say that Canada was the first Commonwealth nation to enact a nationality law. The Irish Free State had done so in 1935, and although Ireland is not a member of the Commonwealth now, it remained one until 18 April 1949. JAJ 22:04, 14 September 2005 (UTC)

Uni/bicameral map?[edit]

The file you uploaded should have been uploaded to replace Image:Unibicameral_Map.png on Wikimedia Commons. It is more reasonable to have a language-inspecific pic like that accesible to all the Wikipedias, not just the English one.

Besides, since your map is obviously based on the on already on Commons, I'm not sure you can make it Public Domain instead of GFDL. Your new image is also of a lower resolution, and has a strange shaded box over Rwanda and Burundi. I also see that you colored Bosnia and Herzegovina orange instead of blue in your new image.

I have changed the colors of Egypt, Botswana, Indonesia and Pakistan on Image:Unibicameral_Map.png now and fixed the links on the article pages. —Gabbe 07:05, 4 October 2005 (UTC)

I've now also fixed the Indonesia islands I missed last time —Gabbe 21:12, 5 October 2005 (UTC)
I've fixed Kalimantan as well —Gabbe 07:07, 6 October 2005 (UTC)

Lusophobia[edit]

Unless you provide a wikipedia article, with solid references od proof of notability of the term, I am going to delist it. I ave no doubts that there was a dilike of Portugals (like any other major nation), but was this word in notable circulation? mikka (t) 20:34, 30 October 2005 (UTC)

France overseas régions[edit]

I am reverting your changes to French overseas régions. A specific infobox for France overseas régions is not needed. It gives the wrong impression that France overseas régions have a specific administrative status, whereas in fact they are just standard régions, like any other French régions. It would be like having a specific "overseas US states" infobox for Hawaii and Alaska. On the other hand, it is true we are losing information with the standard French régions infobox. We need to add a département infobox to the articles Réunion, Guyane, Martinique, and Guadeloupe in order to enter the information that is specific to the départements. I just didn't have the time to do it so far. You can use the standard département infobox (check Haute-Garonne for instance), and put it in the four articles with relevant information. For time zones, country code, etc., you can put them simply in the the article since there is no space for them inside the standard département and région infoboxes. Please note that in any case these subjects are controversial. These overseas régions are not independent countries, and for instance in Réunion many people use .fr for their website, they don't use .re, whereas of course people in favor of independence use .re, etc. I don't think it is a good idea to put controversial things in the infoboxes. Better write it inside the article, and put a little explanation. Hardouin 12:32, 11 November 2005 (UTC)

For time zones maybe we can add a new line in the standard French régions infobox, but then that means we need to fill in the line for all 26 régions of France, and check which apply summer daylight saving, and which don't. Hardouin 12:34, 11 November 2005 (UTC)
A special government department? What do you mean by that? Again, the status of overseas régions and départements is the same as régions and départements in metropolitan France. The categories "overseas région" and "overseas département" don't exist in French law. Hardouin 01:00, 12 November 2005 (UTC)

Sources please[edit]

In order for "In 1997, a similar operation was performed in the Australian state of Victoria, when a woman's face, torn off in a similar accident, was packed in ice and successfully replanted" to stay at Face transplant something in the way of evidence or a source is needed. Thank you. WAS 4.250 15:06, 10 December 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for the source! After reading it, it seems so similar to the India case that I had to re-read both cases to check if perhaps they were one and the same case but one had misinformation. The difference in dates as well as locations made me think the similarity is probably due to both being caused by exactly the same tragic thing : long flowing female hair caught in the same type farm equipment - pulling the hair at one end and cutting skin tissue below the face - face harvesting machinery - now THAT'S a horror movie!

Gibraltar[edit]

What is your complaint regarding the Gibraltar infobox? Perhaps you could share the 'joke' ? --Gibnews 07:17, 4 April 2006 (UTC)

The problem was not with any information about Gibraltar, it was the infobox template itself, which is less user-friendly than previous ones.

The information about it being a UK overseas territory is displayed twice (which is why I put <!-- can somebody get rid of this? -->) but when I tried to delete it, it created spaces for {{{established_events}}} {{{established_dates}}} I have no issues at all with the status of Gibraltar, or with the data contained in the infobox - in fact, I wanted to enter information for National Day being on 10th September.Quiensabe 16:30, 4 April 2006 (UTC)

No problem, was curious about the detail - that infobox is a cryptic area that gave me hell trying to update too, will have another poke at it. National day used to be in there.--Gibnews 08:29, 5 April 2006 (UTC)

Just had a go at that infobox and think its better now, take a look. Although don't understand templates but known to hack things :) --Gibnews 09:25, 9 April 2006 (UTC)

I included a short section and a picture about Gibraltar National Day, although its not currently linked. Spent too much time on that infobox ! All help appreciated.--Gibnews 17:03, 10 April 2006 (UTC)

Unilateral removal of the history section in ABC article[edit]

Hi Quiensabe

We have an unpleasant situation about to develop over this action by one "cyberjunkie" ("cj"), who decided all of a sudden that he'd move the entire History section of the ABC article to a new daughter article, without replacing it with a summary. The history section was almost entirely written more than a year ago.

Since this action on 12 September, the section has languished with no text at all under its title, save a link to the daughter article.The action has, in effect, gutted the article, leaving what appear to be insubstantial fragments without a core. It's must be odd to the newcomer to be denied a summary of the history and to move straight onto a chunky section on "funding and relationship with government" without knowing where how the institution arose.

Now, it's not that I disagree with him that the History section was written in greater detail than you'd normally expect in summary style. (A related issue is that the rest of the article may need to be fleshed out in the opposite direction to achieve satisfactory summary coverage of the topic—perhaps the optimal balance needs to be debated on the talk page.) What I do object to is

  • (1) his failure to raise the matter on the talk page beforehand, and
  • (2) provide replacement text with the summary style that he's using as his stated rationale for the removal.

The edit comment for the removal was "split (will summarise later)", whereas I'd have been pleased to see a summary written before the removal, for immediate replacement.

I've raised the matter on the talk page, and Cyberjunkie has responded negatively:

I think a total blank is worse than a long history. Please create a summary soon. Your action has resulted in damage to the overall article, IMV. Tony 11:16, 12 November 2006 (UTC)

Whereas, I disagree. --cj | talk 12:41, 12 November 2006 (UTC)

I can see that this is getting nowhere. I wonder whether you agree that he should either undertake to write a summary section in the near future (I suggest three or four paragraphs) or reinstate the text and raise the issue on the talk page.

I'd appreciate knowing your opinion. The ABC's talk page is here. Tony 14:00, 12 November 2006 (UTC)

Edit to Spelling reforms of Portuguese[edit]

Hi, Quiensabe. I noticed your recent edit to Spelling reforms of Portuguese. I had decided not to speak of ll and ñ on purpose, because, in the early medieval period of Spanish and Portuguese, other spellings were also used in competition with those for the palatal consonants. For example, nn, and I think ni were used instead of ñ by some authors. However, I have not researched this yet. Perhaps you know. Regards. FilipeS 19:16, 12 November 2006 (UTC)

Hi,

Thanks for your post on Languages of Indonesia here. You are very right about how languages in China and Indonesia considered as dialects are actually distinct languages. I recognize this false claim due to an over extent of nationlistic fervor in a lot of countries. Anyways, I have formed a group called WikiProject Dravidian civilizations, a first of its kind. It is to promote the not so heard of, or should I say neglected indigenous civilizations of South Asia. I am also planning on forming a WikiProject Malayo-Polynesian group that will focus on the civilizations of the Indonesian islands, Malaysia, Borneo, and the South Pacific. If you are interested in joining our group, please visit us here] and post your name in the members section. Regards. Wiki Raja 21:12, 19 March 2007 (UTC)

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Cybersky, by Nuttah68 (talk · contribs), another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Cybersky seems to be about a person, group of people, band, club, company, or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not assert the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting Cybersky, please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page.

Portuguese embassy in the Philippines[edit]

Hi, I would like to ask what proof do you have that the Portuguese embassy in the Philippines was closed in 2007? According to both websites of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Portugal and of the Philippines, they both state that the embassy still remains. Please show me where you received your information. Thanks. Aquintero (talk) 15:38, 11 October, 2008 (UTC)

RS?[edit]

You have offered POV for the Indonesian Malaysian difference article and although you might consider yourself right on the matter - as a malaysian language taught australian who has lived in Indonesia I beg to differ - dont be suprised if your edit is reverted. To save it - rather than re-writing - you need to provide WP:RS on such a matter if you do not want your edit to be reverted - your opinion could be as valid as my experience which does not agree - you need sources/cites for such a matter - thanks SatuSuro 00:48, 20 October 2008 (UTC)

Thanks, however, I would regard this sentence as POV - For non native Indonesians and Malays, the languages seem similar, but for native users, the differences are disturbing when used for a deep verbal conversation or during written communication. My editing was more a rewording than my own opinion.

Also, as someone from the UK who grew up in Singapore and visited Malaysia and Indonesia regularly, I've never heard anyone refer to the Malay language in English as 'Malaysian', only as Bahasa Malaysia, and only then in Malaysia itself. I suppose it could be called that, just as the language of Indonesia is called Indonesian, but I don't think it'd be popular in Singapore and Brunei, where it has always been know as Malay. Terima kasih banyak.Quiensabe (talk) 08:17, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

Thank you for responding - aspects of this subject have at times been probematic, so I do appreciate your response.

Well terima kasih banyak is telling :) - what we are touching on has previously wasted a huge amount of space and time between fiercely xenophobic malays and indonesians with very limited english - so I withdraw my challenge to revert your edit (although I believe your removal of the spelling section was misguided) - in Australia and Java I have heard sufficient variants on what we are discussing to go against any common practices or general usages in singapore, malaysia and brunei - and in the end you havent specifically offered anything that resembles RS (The original point is for whatever our experiences might tell us - WP:V is a requirement against WP:OR and other various misdemenours - which is typical for the whole malaysian and indonesian wiki projects - so I rest my case - andecdotal information for a pair of projects with a very large number of articles that have not a single reliable source amongst them - more appropriately - cheers and hope you are able to offer something like a source sometime SatuSuro 09:10, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

Oh sorry forgot to put about the diffs (ie intelligibility between malay and indonesian) - I totally disagree - but havent a ref to stand on so ill leave off any further issue with the whole thing for the moment - thanks again for taking time to respond SatuSuro 09:20, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

My sincerest apologies i do have difficulties at times checking history/diffs - sorry about accusing you of something you didnt do! thank you so much for your civility - hey maybe one day we'll meet at an edit we both totally agree needs some better work - and get if fixed - sorry to have taken so much of your time up - cheers SatuSuro 14:39, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

TfD nomination of Template:911ct supporters[edit]

Template:911ct supporters has been nominated for deletion by Ice Cold Beer. As this TfD nomination includes objections to the same list of people that is currently in use in Template:911ct, I am inviting you to comment on the discussion at the template's entry on the Templates for Deletion page. (I am sending this message to you as a current or former editor of David Shayler, following the guideline on multiple messages.) — Regards.   Cs32en  18:19, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

File:Dublin7.jpg listed for deletion[edit]

An image or media file that you uploaded or altered, File:Dublin7.jpg, has been listed at Wikipedia:Files for deletion. Please see the discussion to see why this is (you may have to search for the title of the image to find its entry), if you are interested in it not being deleted. Thank you. ww2censor (talk) 13:31, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:Uktv.png)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:Uktv.png. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 03:37, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Disputed non-free use rationale for File:Gregshackleton.jpeg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Gregshackleton.jpeg. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this file on Wikipedia may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the file description page and adding or clarifying the reason why the file qualifies under this policy. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your file is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a non-free use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for files used under the non-free content policy require both a copyright tag and a non-free use rationale.

If it is determined that the file does not qualify under the non-free content policy, it might be deleted by an administrator within a few days in accordance with our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you. —SpaceFlight89 18:03, 17 September 2009 (UTC)

+44 (disambiguation)[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a search with the contents of +44 (disambiguation), and it appears to be very similar to another Wikipedia page: +44. It is possible that you have accidentally duplicated contents, or made an error while creating the page— you might want to look at the pages and see if that is the case. If you are intentionally trying to rename an article, please see Help:Moving a page for instructions on how to do this without copying and pasting. If you are trying to move or copy content from one article to a different one, please see Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia and be sure you have acknowledged the duplication of material in an edit summary to preserve attribution history.

This message was placed automatically, and it is possible that the bot found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article and it would be appreciated if you could drop a note on the maintainer's talk page. CorenSearchBot (talk) 15:31, 2 February 2010 (UTC)

+44 was originally a disambiguation page and then, late in 2009, someone copied the contents of +44 (band) and pasted into +44 and made +44 (band) into a redirect to +44. Later, in January 2010, someone else reverted the changes to +44 to make it again into a disambiguation page. However, this created a fork of the article originally found at +44 (band) and edits continued on both branches of the fork. These changes were reverted by a Wikipedia administrator such that +44 again became a disambiguation page and +44 (band) reverted to the contents about the punk band of that name, as of November, 2009.
By now making +44 into a redirect to Telephone_numbers_in_the_United_Kingdom this not only removes the disambiguation link to +44 (band) but it also, potentially, could precipitate an edit war with the followers of the band +44 (band). The existence of +44 (disambiguation) appears to be an unnecessary duplication. Enquire (talk) 20:38, 6 February 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of +44 (disambiguation)[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on +44 (disambiguation) requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be a clear copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words.

If the external website belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. If you are not the owner of the external website but have permission from that owner, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission. You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, 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. -- Jeandré (talk), 2010-02-07t08:39z 08:39, 7 February 2010 (UTC)

Image source problem with File:Zimbabwe vehicle registration plate format 2006-.jpg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thank you for uploading File:Zimbabwe vehicle registration plate format 2006-.jpg.

This image is a derivative work, containing an "image within an image". Examples of such images would include a photograph of a sculpture, a scan of a magazine cover, or a screenshot of a computer game or movie. In each of these cases, the rights of the creator of the original image must be considered, as well as those of the creator of the derivative work.

While the description page states who made this derivative work, it currently doesn't specify who created the original work, so the overall copyright status is unclear. If you did not create the original work depicted in this image, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright.

If you have uploaded other derivative works, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 00:52, 29 October 2012 (UTC). If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page.

Trinidad and Tobago (Commonwealth Realm)[edit]

Whilst it is absolutely true that Dominica became a republic on independence and was thus never a Commonwealth Realm itself, I don't see how that has any relevance to the fact that Trinidad and Tobago to date is the only Commonwealth Realm in the caribbean which has abolished its monarchy.

Telephone Numbers in Malta[edit]

The Telephone numbers in Malta article was recently deleted, see this edit. This article is not a duplicate and should not have been deleted. Soon after the original content had been restored it was again deleted in error.

Rather than reverse the previous erroneous deletion, you have recently created a brand new page here. You may not have been aware of the prior history. Thanks for stepping in and editing.
