Omdo socking[edit]

I notice you've also been reverting the various IP socks that have popped up. Have you also noticed a recent spike in activity, and have you seen any IP ranges besides 36 etc 180.253 etc? Regards, CMD (talk) 16:48, 7 January 2014 (UTC)

Not yet, as far as I know only 5 IP's which I saw uses the '180' ranges than the '36'. Didn't know yet if he gets a new IP like the one which you just revert before. — иz нίpнόp ʜᴇʟᴘ! 20:06, 7 January 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for January 9[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Malaysia–Ukraine relations, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Cocoa and Mixed marriage (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

DYK for Death and state funeral of Nelson Mandela[edit]

A question on flags, an answer on flags[edit]

Just seeing if I can offer an explanation for the flag of Malaysia not looking as good as other flags with horizontal striping. Basic reason is simply the number of lines, the Malay flag has fourteen lines, the Liberian and Malayan flags have eleven and the American flag thirteen so from that we can at least assume odd numbered lines look better than even numbered ones, probably would require more flags to look at to know for sure. Don't know if it's been answered by someone else or yourself or even if this has been suggested already but just offering a possible reason. tutterMouse (talk) 14:59, 12 January 2014 (UTC)

Hey! Great answer! Thanks for that, you are the first person to answer that since I'm already waiting for a long time. Again, thanks! :) — "ʀᴜ" ɴᴏᴛ ʀᴜssɪᴀɴ ᴡʜᴜᴛ? 16:50, 12 January 2014 (UTC)
..and may I know how did you see my question on my userpage?. :P — "ʀᴜ" ɴᴏᴛ ʀᴜssɪᴀɴ ᴡʜᴜᴛ? 16:58, 12 January 2014 (UTC)
I read userpages sometimes to know more about my fellow Wikipedians. I got there though by your request on WP:RFPP. I'm glad I could answer your question though! tutterMouse (talk) 18:27, 12 January 2014 (UTC)

Just read over this. I reckon TutterMouse may be right, because when there is an odd number of stripes, it's symmetrical, and humans love symmetry. All the other flags have red on the top and the bottom, except for the KL flag, which has white on the top and bottom of both sections. CMD (talk) 13:36, 13 January 2014 (UTC)

Yep, now I understand why the flag thumbnail looks weird in small size but looks OK in large size. — "ʀᴜ" ɴᴏᴛ ʀᴜssɪᴀɴ ᴡʜᴜᴛ? 17:44, 13 January 2014 (UTC)

Malaysian subdivisions[edit]

Hey, I've been looking through the Malaysia article, and although it's about in the size range the MOS indicates wikipedia articles should have (it's 51kB of prose which is between the 40kB optimum and the 60kB soft max), I think the subdivisions section is undeveloped. Do you have any good English sources summarising the different powers and roles of state, federal, and district (division?) governments? Regards, CMD (talk) 17:52, 9 February 2014 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

...for your token of appreciation. I see you are from Sabah as well? Haleth (talk) 14:50, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

Ah, cool. So am I. Thanks for creating the food-related articles you did. Made my life a lot easier lol. Haleth (talk) 15:01, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

I understand. Keep in mind though, that especially with food in Sabah and Sarawak (as I have discovered), there are a lot of names being thrown around, but they actually refer to the exact same thing. Mostly because of a lack of widespread use of a standardized lingua franca besides Malay, but also because they are very poorly documented in English. I found out just the other day for example, that kuih pasung and jelurut and the Sarawakian selorot are one and the same, and so is lamban and kelupis. Not variants, just different names by different communities. Linongot is also not treated as a dessert, but simply a variant of plain rice wrapped with the same leaves. Haleth (talk) 15:25, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

Hey, thanks for the tip about the referencing tools. Definitely makes my life easier, hehe. Haleth (talk) 23:16, 30 March 2014 (UTC)
