Highest ski resort[edit]

I had heard that the ski resort in Bolivia was officially closed. Is that right ? I am invariant under co-ordinate transformations (talk) 00:03, 27 October 2008 (UTC)

HP Botswana[edit]

Dear Scheridon,

Your enthusiastic contributions regarding the HP of Botswana (articles Otse and Monalanong Hill and the List of countries by highest point) is appreciated. Keep doing the "work" improving the Wiki.

However, would you be so kind to specify your sources that justify the supremacy of Monalanong Hill over Otse Hill? Some years ago we (user:Viewfinder, user:Kószab and other involved persons) discussed the topic and examined all the available data. These included topographic maps, SRTM data and GPS readings from the very places. The final conclusion was that there is still no evidence that would justify the Monalanong Hill as the HP of Botswana. The 1494 m datum comes from the SRTM database just as the 1491 m for Otse. The error range of these data is significantly higher (approx. 15 m), so we can not tell which one is higher. However, Ginge Fullen (a British explorer) did a GPS reading on the top of both hills, and his measurement showed Otse slightly higher. That is why we left Otse in the list as HP of Botswana.

So if you have more convincing evidence, please, tell us about it. But if you currently do not have any, than it would be a good idea (if you agree with it) to revert your good-faith edits in the connecting articles. Kószab (talk) 20:33, 10 April 2009 (UTC)


Proposed deletion of List of ski areas and resorts in North America[edit]

The article List of ski areas and resorts in North America has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Unnecessary collection of links, "Wikipedia is not a mirror or a repository of links" per Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{dated prod}} will stop the Proposed Deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The Speedy Deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and Articles for Deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Truthanado (talk) 01:15, 9 August 2009 (UTC)

Chuí[edit]

So the pronunciations at the reference you removed are wrong? If so, could you find a reliable source to back this up?

Also, once we settle this matter, the IPA stress mark is ‹ˈ›, not an apostrophe ‹'›. They look the same in many fonts, so they get mixed up a lot. — ˈzɪzɨvə (talk) 22:47, 16 November 2010 (UTC)

I'm curious if you hear those samples at Forvo as one syllable or two. To my ear, Chuí is in each case one syllable. I suspect that as there is considerable variation here (as elsewhere in Portuguese) between syllabic [i, u] and nonsyllabic [j, w]. I think the purpose of the accent is mark it as //ʃui// (i.e., not the //ʃui// you'd otherwise expect), not to specify //ʃu.i//

Portuguese orthography: Rising diphthongs (which may also be pronounced as hiatuses) containing stressed i or stressed u are accented, so that they will not be pronounced as falling diphthongs.

— what happens after that is a matter for Portuguese sandhi, and a native speaker may have trouble hearing the distinction. As a native speaker of English, I'd probably count two syllables for towel and one for fowl, despite (I'm pretty sure), rhyming them perfectly. All that said, I'm splitting hairs, and your reference is good enough for me. Cheers! — ˈzɪzɨvə (talk) 16:59, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

Catenanuova primary source[edit]

Here is a scan of the primary source document relevant page

http://www.osservatorioacque.it/dati/ANNALI/A_1999/PI_60.HTML

and this is the prove that the book is published in the National Library of Florence.

http://opac.bncf.firenze.sbn.it/opac/controller.jsp?action=notizia_view&notizia_idn=PAL0101468

Clic "dettaglio annate" and you get prove that the year 1999 is deposited in the National Library, and with this you get your primary source.

You can always find the proves that the measurement value is false or biased. Good luck.

--93.145.249.158 (talk) 14:02, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

By the way, perhaps you detected a concrete problem. We have a WMO European temperature record (that is the highest temperature measured by a WMO station) and a non-WMO station that measured a higher temperature. The WMO record is really that of Athens, but the true highest reliable temperature was measured in another place by another station. Catenanuova is warmer than Athens, but it has not a WMO weather station and it will never have one, as the Region Sicily is not WMO member (in Italy only Military Air Forces AM are and only the small set of AM weather stations are WMO labeled despite of the circumstance that thousand of other weather stations are technically better than WMO-quality in WMO-compliant locations). What to do? In my opinion the WMO record is for Athens and the highest temperature is for Catenanuova; I do not see other rational solutions without adopting views that deny the validity of WMO records for WMO stations and that slander the Idrometric Network of the Region Sicily by assuming that they are technically non-compliant with standards of measurement, a thing that should be proved by who states it.

Do how you prefer. If you want to revert, I will not revert you, but I will ask you reference for "unofficiality" or "disputed" or "discussed" or whatever. Maybe some reliable reference exists, but I wasn't able to retrieve it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 93.145.249.158 (talk) 19:02, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

Vandalism[edit]

You stated in the edit summary that this edit to List of weather records was vandalism. Please don't throw around that term so wildly; the way I see it, it was a good faith mistake by a new editor who has made many constructive edits to that page. Thank you. -RunningOnBrains(talk) 21:21, 13 July 2011 (UTC)

Don't worry about it. I'm just on a crusade to keep new editors, and every little bit helps. -RunningOnBrains(talk) 02:50, 14 July 2011 (UTC)

Brazil as a founding member of the UN[edit]

Hi Roger,

I saw that you recently reverted an edit on the Brazil page about the UN. Point was that brazil is not a founding member of the UN. I checked that and indeed, Brazil is not a founding member of the UN, according to the UN: http://www.un.org/en/aboutun/history/dumbarton_yalta.shtml

Do you have any idea why this info came there in the first place? As is, I want to correct it, but I also remember that Brazil always opens the general assembly, so clearly there is a special relationship there.... cheers, Magafuzula (talk) 10:17, 9 April 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, apparently every country that became a member in '45 may call itself a founding member. Good! Since it is your link I'll give you the honors of putting it in place!

cheers Magafuzula (talk) 23:43, 9 April 2013 (UTC)


= Mzaar Kfardebian article[edit]

Hello,

I am happy to see that you are keeping this article from being abused by both sides: people from the town of Faraya who would like to remove all texts relating to the fact that the resort is within the jurisdiction often town of Kfardebian on one side and on the other side, people from the town of Kfardebiane who would like to remove all mention of the name Faraya in the article. I would like to mention two important facts: although the municipality of Kfardebiane has obtain from the ministry of tourism in Lebanon that the resort is officially referred to as "Mzaar Kfardebian", people in Lebanon continue to say "Faraya" when talking about the resort. It has been the case since the 1950's when the first group of investors from Beirut built the first chalets and the first ski lift. The other Fact is that the company owning today the concession of the ski slopes and the ski lifts was founded in the 1960's under the name "Faraya-Mzaar tourisme et sports d'hiver"
