Hello, Tobby! Good morning! Or at least, I hope it's morning where you live! Anyway, the article Brazil is blocked due to a dispute over a content.

Information icon Hello. Regarding the recent revert you made to Lousiana: you may already know about them, but you might find Wikipedia:Template messages/User talk namespace useful. After a revert, these can be placed on the user's talk page to let them know you considered their edit inappropriate, and also direct new users towards the sandbox. They can also be used to give a stern warning to a vandal when they've been previously warned. Thank you. Hi, thanks to add warnings on the vandal's Talk page whenever you revert, that normally helps to track the number of vandalous edits before ARV. Regards, kashmiri TALK 14:07, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

You must stop damaging the article about a country as wonderful as Colombia with these images.[edit]

The article about Colombia is in the process of a best editing, this article is being improved gradually by true connoisseurs about Colombia, for example more than 70% of Colombians has never seen a guerrilla fighter in his life. The Colombian do not want the image of a criminal like Pablo Escobar appears in the article about the country.

If you want to see images of a criminal like Pablo Escobar and the murderous guerrilla you can search these images on the web. --Theryx7 (talk) 05:48, 11 July 2013 (UTC)

I have edited this article for months with the help of true connoisseurs of the country, although the article needs several improvements, but now you're ruining all the hours of work on this article. Please do not destroy the work of many people who have been improving the article about Colombia. --Theryx7 (talk) 05:48, 11 July 2013 (UTC)

World War II[edit]

Hi Toby, I've just reverted your addition of several extra images to this article. The article already has lots of images and looks a bit over-crowded in my opinion, and it's customary to discuss significant changes such as this on the talk page first given the high profile of the article. I'd suggest that while there's scope to swap some new images in, increasing the total number at this point probably isn't justified. But other editors might have different views from me! I hope that this is OK. Regards, Nick-D (talk) 01:14, 19 January 2014 (UTC)

Recent edits regarding Poles/Slavs[edit]

Hey, I've noticed you are editing a few articles and making several new sections in talk pages regarding Nazis and Slavs. The reason a lot of your edits are being reverted is because they are already covered in the article or are not necessary to add into an article.

For example:

"The Nazis because of this declared Slavs to be untermenschen (subhumans)." is what is in the article but you wanted to edit "The Nazi ideology defined ethnic Poles as "sub-humans"." when Poles are Slavs and this is already mentioned in the article.

I do apologise for removing all of your edit regarding the role of sex and gender and have added it back in but tweaked it more accurately whilst using the source you did use.

This is nothing personal against you mate but we both are trying to achieve accurate reliable Wikipedia articles and overlapping stuff is not the way to go about it. If you want to discuss Nazis/Slavs discussion then we can on the relative talk pages. Once again, I have nothing against you. :)!--Windows66 (talk) 12:07, 26 January 2014 (UTC)

On ROsinsky image, Impalement...[edit]

Believe me, I've searched all Internet to find some verification that this is an actual story from the 20th century (as main editor, I've been extremely restictive on adding 20th-21th century material), but I haven't found a single source of any "Captain Rosinsky". That's why I've previously deleted the image, but I won't get into an edit war with you, but I would be EXTREMELY grateful if you find an additional source which enhances the probability of it being real from being just, for example, a fake image, or a still photo from a movie. I know your edit is in good faith, but in contrast of MOST stories on Impalement, that of Captain Rosinsky has precious few additional verifications to it.Arildnordby (talk) 22:08, 27 January 2014 (UTC)

To make my point specific: You are not the only editor wanting this image within Impalement, just the most recent.

About recent contributions[edit]

Greetings,
Thank you for your recent contributions on topics related to Egypt's foreign relations. However, many of the add info edits have been a clear misrepresentation of sources. Egypt didn't support anyone in the latest Gaza conflict, and this, along with the fact that it helped broker a ceasefire more than once should also be taken into consideration. Most of the sources (even the one you used) say or suggest that Egypt is "indifferent" towards Gaza because the government opposes Hamas, and I fail to see how that can be translated into support for Israel; otherwise this would be considered original research. You might want to take a look at this interesting article about Sisi's regional foreign policy from Libya to Syria and Iraq, which explains very well the Egyptian government's stance on Gaza. Egypt is no different in this regard than Mahmoud Abbas and many other Arab leaders who also oppose the Hamas government in Gaza. For example, please read the Guardian article that you used carefully, and you will notice that its whole context has nothing to do with the title, "Egypt’s decision to side with Israel has cost Gaza dear". It doesn't prove anything about any Egyptian support for Israel, even if Egypt's position was slightly in favour of Israel's interests. Furthermore, this Haaretz article requires subscription, which you used to justify the sentence: In response to the 2014 Israel–Gaza conflict and Egyptian support for Israel,(ref) Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan called Egyptian President el-Sisi an "illegitimate tyrant". Firstly, this is not only highly controversial, but also WP:UNDUE in an article about a country (like some of the other stuff you added), and is only relevant in Sisi's article. Second, as far as I can see, the source hardly reveals anything explicit about any "Egyptian support for Israel"; neither does this one (synthesis?). And even if, we must only take into account what the majority of the sources say. The destruction of the tunnels is merely related to Egypt's current insurgency[5] and crackdown on Islamist militants in the country. Nothing else. Regards, Fitzcarmalan (talk) 21:09, 9 October 2014 (UTC)

Hi Fitzcarmalan. Take a look at this articles about Egypt's regional foreign policy.
  • Egypt, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia are seen as supporting Israel's crackdown on Hamas
  • Most Arab states are actively supporting Israel against the Palestinians -- and not even shy about it or doing it discreetly.
  • Some pro-government Egyptian talk shows broadcast in Gaza “are saying the Egyptian Army should help the Israeli Army get rid of Hamas,”
Tobby72 (talk) 07:22, 10 October 2014 (UTC)
Hello again, Tobby. I am unfortunately getting the distinct sense that you haven't considered any of my concerns, so I will try to clarify a few things. Egypt is not an ally of Israel and nothing in these sources say that relations have "improved significantly". The 2014 conflict just ended two months ago and there is nothing particularly revealing about it yet regarding Egypt's policy on Gaza. Once again, the Egyptian government might have been satisfied with Israel's attacks on Hamas, but being anti-Hamas is by no means a synonym of anti-Palestine, and is certainly not being pro-Israel. This is very likely original research and these are just opinion pieces (not that reliable either). Plus, why did you specifically cherrypick this aspect of Egypt's stance in particular and ignored others? During the war, the Egyptian government opened the Rafah border crossing to treat wounded Palestinians,[6] [7] [8] sent 500 tons of aid to Gaza during the conflict [9] and condemned Israel's offensive numerous times.[10] [11] Why can't we also mention that relations have improved under Mohamed Morsi's presidency?
  • Morsi’s warm letter to (Shimon) Peres sparks anger and denial in Egypt"Great and good friend," Morsi wrote in the letter to his Israeli counterpart, "being desirous of maintaining and strengthening the cordial relations which so happily exist between our two countries, I have selected Mr. Atef Mohamed Salem Sayed El Ahl to be our ambassador extraordinary and plenipotentiary." The letter was initially denied by a Muslim Brotherhood official as a fabrication by the Times of Israel (see the article), but was later confirmed by Morsi's spokesman, and a senior Muslim Brotherhood figure has resigned from his post to protest this letter.
Now back to the sources you gave me. The France 24 one talks about Egyptian media presenters and columnists (irrelevant), and most of them usually do so because Hamas is an ally of the Muslim Brotherhood and because some of them also believe that Hamas was created by Israel to rupture the predominantly secular Palestinian resistance. The article's accuracy is also questionable, because very few in Egypt would take the risk of praising Israel and its leaders, and those who do are an extreme minority because they can be easily labelled as traitors. There were some Egyptian television hosts criticizing Hamas during Morsi's 1-year tenure as well, so there is nothing strange about anti-Hamas sentiment in the Egyptian media. If you also read the article to the end, you will see that general distrust of Palestinians was always common among Egyptians, even before the 2011 revolution. The second and third sources only talk about mutual interests. The only phrase that would attract the readers' attention in the beginning of the NYT article by David Kirkpatrick is: After the military ouster of the Islamist government in Cairo last year, Egypt has led a new coalition of Arab states — including Jordan, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates — that has effectively lined up with Israel in its fight against Hamas, the Islamist movement that controls the Gaza Strip. But can you tell me what does "lined up" mean in the English language? Does it mean support or backing? Hardly, it merely means finding a common enemy with someone. Also, the rest of this article and the CNN one only reflect Egypt's conflict with Hamas and they rely mostly on opinion pieces. This has nothing to do with your original point → relations between Egypt and Israel have improved significantly following the coup. Once again, this is an article about an important regional country, where Sisi and Morsi were just two of its leaders who don't reveal anything historic yet about Egypt's regional agenda. Each aspect of foreign relations should be mentioned as briefly as possible, and unnecessary inclusions (especially controversial ones like this one) should be kept aside so that they don't give extra weight to insignificant and minority viewpoints.
