Various edits[edit]

Hi Rama, glad to see that you are back. I am doing a lot of editing on French vessels currently so I suspect our paths will continue to cross. Regards, Acad Ronin (talk) 23:17, 10 March 2015 (UTC)

Likewise, always delighted to see you work. I seize the opportunity to congratulate you on your mastery of French sources. Cheers! Rama (talk) 23:20, 10 March 2015 (UTC)
For reasons I am reluctant to disclose, I am the beneficiary of others who have mastered the French sources. Acad Ronin (talk) 00:56, 11 March 2015 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of André Bruno de Frévol de Lacoste[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article André Bruno de Frévol de Lacoste has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Hi Rama, I didn't realize that you were an administrator on WikiCommons. I have a question for you, if I may. I have permission from the subject of a photo to place it into commons, and I have a verbal from the photographer. How do I get it into Commons as it is not yet in the public domain, and I am not the author? Regards, Acad Ronin (talk) 19:16, 20 April 2015 (UTC)

The best thing for you to do would be to send an e-mail to (see Commons:OTRS) to back the licence of the image. If you could have the photographer send an e-mail himself, or forward one he would have sent you, that would be ideal. I look forwards very much to seeing your image.
Cheers! Rama (talk) 20:30, 20 April 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for getting back to me. I'll do that, but it will take time. Also, if it works, the photo will not be interesting as it will have nothing to do with age of sail ships, but instead appear under my real name in a totally different set of interests. Regards, Acad Ronin (talk) 13:39, 21 April 2015 (UTC)
There have been some theoretical conjonctures hypothising the existance of interesting subjects beyond age of sail ships. Purely academic, of course ;) Rama (talk) 21:43, 21 April 2015 (UTC)

UNPROFOR fatalities[edit]

Hi. A very long time ago, you added a figure of 320 casualties to the UNPROFOR article. At some point, that figure also made its way into the Bosnian War article. It's been tagged as requiring a citation for a while now, and I've been trying to find one but have found contradictory sources. Is there any chance you could contribute to the discussion here with any memories you have about where the 320 figure came from? Cordless Larry (talk) 21:14, 30 April 2015 (UTC)
