Nice work on JAG[edit]

Hi there. Nice work on "JAG" around the world. I was planning on creating a similar table. I like yours better! Lbbzman 15:06, 28 January 2006 (UTC)

Happy Days (1929 film)[edit]

I see you've made Happy Days a 20th Century Fox production but in fact it was a (William) Fox Film Corporation production - before the mid-1930s merger with 20th Century Films. David Lauder 11:21, 10 March 2007 (UTC)

Hi. When you recently edited List of JAG episodes, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Meritorious Service Medal (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.

Monarchy of Sweden[edit]

Thanx for good work on the article! With this edit though, the top got screwed up: a big blank space to the right of the infobox and under the hatnote. I don't know how you did that, or how to fix it. SergeWoodzing (talk) 17:05, 15 May 2012 (UTC)

Thank you! However I do think it is rather sad that the article in question is so short and lacking sources - for it really is topic in which there's clearly a lot to write about - while, for instance, there are corresponding articles such as Monarchy of Canada where the authors quite egregiously strive to make a hen out of a feather (not to mention the blatant monarchist-POV). I suppose that best road forward-looking course of action is to translate and incorporate elements from the Swedish WP article, which I think is fairly balanced in the sense that it expresses neither monarchist nor republican POVs.

Generalissimo[edit]

I notice that you’ve added Crown Prince Charles John to the list of generalissimos on this page, seemingly without regard to the edit note in the list section which points out that "The term "Generalisimo" is NOT a synonym for supreme commander, or commander-in-chief, and is rarely used in English", and "All persons listed here should be supported by a source which specifically refers to them by this title"
Karl Johan seems quite clearly to be covered by the former; and for the latter, the source you have provided (which is in Swedish and so cannot be verified here) is of no account unless it actually uses the term. I also note that you’ve edited the KJ page (here) to correspond to this.
So, do you have any evidence that KJ was ever afforded this title, in English or otherwise? (The Swedish WP article [1] does not say so)
Can you show that the title "Generalissimus" was ever used in the Swedish military hierarchy (again, the Swedish WP does not suport this, either here or here)
If you are unable to provide this evidence these contributions will have to be reverted. Moonraker12 (talk) 14:03, 2 November 2012 (UTC)

That particular book can be found at the Military Archives of Sweden, and as far as I know, it its not availible online. Here is the specific catalogue post: searchUnitId0&page=4 http://asp.bicsv.se/riksarkivet/wsRecInfo.asp?idno=199654&UnitId=0&DocGrp=0&SearchUnitId=0&LoanUnitId=1&comb=AND&sString=FT=Rang-RullaAND searchUnitId0&page=4. And in that book Generalissimus is listed as a grade/rank above that of Field Marshals. In the volumes of this series published post 1818, when he became King, that title was no longer used and thus the category for Generalissimus was removed. The Swedish WP does not cover all aspects of Swedish military history. RicJac (talk) 15:59, 2 November 2012 (UTC)
Apparently, he wrote this published document himself in 1813, notice the title (English: The Crown Prince Generalissmus, to the Army), from the National Library of Sweden database: http://libris.kb.se/bib/2390855. RicJac (talk) 16:18, 2 November 2012 (UTC)
The title Generalissimus was also used in eras before, as with Lennart Torstensson, but at that time it was not a rank or grade but rather a position corresponding to a commander-in-chief in British military terminology, hence its non-inclusion this article. RicJac (talk) 17:02, 2 November 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for that.
The second source is probably more useful than the first (as I won’t be visiting the Military Archive of Sweden any time soon!) though if you have a quote from the first it would help.
On a wider issue, it’s probably not a good idea to add stuff on a Swedish matter to the English WP without it also being in the Swedish WP; its presence (and acceptance) there would go some way to lend credibility to what you put here.
Anyway, happy editing, Moonraker12 (talk) 12:36, 6 November 2012 (UTC)

Trying to help[edit]

Hello! Please note this change! In English, it would not be normal to refer to the Swedish government as "the State" (as in Swedish staten), and such usage can also too easily be confused with states of a union, such as Missouri or Schleswig-Holstein. --SergeWoodzing (talk) 14:27, 26 February 2014 (UTC)

You are quite wrong on this: the State (with cap.) is the acceptable English translation for “staten” while the Government (also with cap.) is the acceptable English translation for “regeringen”. But I explain this in more detail at Talk:Monarchy of Sweden. RicJac (talk) 05:26, 1 March 2014 (UTC)
