Portal: Anniversaries[edit]

Hi Tonda. I finally finished the anniversaries section for the Portal page – Portal:Czech Republic/Selected anniversaries. Please let me know if you think I have missed anything! Thanks, C679 18:03, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

Hi Cloudz, the selection is great, I would add i.e. deaths of Jan Hus and Jan Palach as important milestones in the Czech history (I guess I wrote about it previously) or maybe Saints Cyril and Methodius Day (on 5th July), but generally I think you did great work on the list. Thank you. --Vejvančický (talk / contribs) 08:59, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

No big deal[edit]

Sorry to hear of you giving up your sysop bit. I would like to suggest that you might eventually reconsider since adminship shouldn't be a big deal (back in the day we used to say it was no big deal) and a lot of good could come of us adopting this approach again rather than thinking of it as an elevated status. The actions of one sysop shouldn't discourage us from being sysops any more than the actions of one editor should discourage us from being editors. But if you don't want to, that's no big deal. pozdravem, – filelakeshoe (t / c) 15:48, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Not a big deal, filelakeshoe. What authority (if any) does being an administrator give you? What does being an administrator mean to you?, someone asked me during my own RfA in 2010. Authority? This is not a good way to acquire more authority. The adminship requires big responsibility and honesty, I responded. When I see the standard compromised with the silent approval of others, it becomes a worthless badge to me, and I don't want to wear it anymore. I can do the same things as I did before, so not a big deal :) It is just me and my own understanding of responsibility and honesty. --Vejvančický (talk / contribs) 06:17, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

Milan Kundera[edit]

Regarding the reference in the Milan Kundera article, it would be nice if only there was, at least, a reference with a title. I thought Wikipedia only accepts those as standard. Luna Edelweiss (talk) 10:00, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

I think that the title of the book is Agnes's Final Afternoon: An Essay on the Work of Milan Kundera, I own a copy. The French edition was published in 2003, see fr:François_Ricard#Ouvrages. Yes, the title should be mentioned in the reference, but many people create Wikipedia with varied competence and I guess the author of this contribution forgot or omitted to add the title. But s/he left us at least a hint, which is better than {{citation needed}}. I'll try to find the passage and fix the citation. --Vejvančický (talk / contribs) 10:14, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
Thank you, Vejvančický! Luna Edelweiss (talk) 15:47, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for August 27[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Mustang Wanted, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Ukrainian and Global Voices. 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.

Redirect page[edit]

Hello,

Please redirect Achraf Baznani to Achraf Baznani (photographer) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Maromania (talkcontribs) 21:30, 4 September 2014 (UTC)

Why me? You can do it yourself by adding #REDIRECT [[Achraf Baznani (photographer)]] to Achraf Baznani. But I'll do that if you explain why do you want me to do it. --Vejvančický (talk / contribs) 12:50, 5 September 2014 (UTC)

Newbie: Hogarthianista[edit]

Thanks for the welcome. Very grateful for the pages you left links to. Hogarthianista (talk) 16:02, 15 September 2014 (UTC)

Hey Hogarthianista thank you for starting an interesting article :) I see that you have managed to upload the image, great! Let me know if you need any assistance, I'll try to help. Best regards. --Vejvančický (talk / contribs) 16:07, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
Btw, I think that the engraving should be listed in Category:Merry-Joseph Blondel at Commons. --Vejvančický (talk / contribs) 16:17, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
Managed to work out how to list the engraving in Blondel's commons category - eventually. Meanwhile, you've been busy tidying my handiwork (smiley). Thanks once again, especially for the link to Steffansson on the French wiki, I didn't know you could do that! Hogarthianista (talk) 17:01, 15 September 2014 (UTC)

Toma etc.[edit]

Nazdar. Pokud se domnívám, že toto přináleží k tomuto, tak mám asi pravdu - ? (k tomu tuctu bloků během 6 měsíců na cswiki jsem se taky dohrabal). Toma byl dnes bloknut na dewiki [1], vzápětí se jistý Bandaska zasadil o jeho odblokování a skončil, páč jsem si toho všiml, stejně; dostal jsem od něj mail, na který jsem odpovědel veřejně tady - to ku tvému vědomí. Čau -jkb- (talk) 22:12, 17 September 2014 (UTC)

Jo, myslím že máš pravdu. Ten seznam loutek na en:wiki je zdaleka nekompletní, bloky má ten kluk všude, kam se podíváš - en:wiki, cs:wiki, commons, teď teda taky de:wiki ... S Tomou je těžká řeč, zkoušel jsem mu pomoci, bránil jsem některé jeho užitečné editace a články, ovšem všechno to bylo jen házení hrachu na zeď. Škoda. --Vejvančický (talk / contribs) 06:46, 19 September 2014 (UTC)
