Proposed Coat of Arms of the Republic of Macedonia[edit]

Dear Ssolbergj,

I am a heraldic artist from the Republic of Macedonia and I would like to ask You not to revert my changes regarding the proposed Coat of Arms of the Republic of Macedonia. The Coat of Arms I am adding is THE proposed design, while the one You are is just your rendition of it.

Best regards, (Хипокамп (talk) 13:13, 18 May 2015 (UTC))

Hi. The file you uploaded is a copyright violation. Thus it cannot be used. The alternative rendition of the blazon is a file with a compatible license (creative commons), and can therefore be used. Please read this. - Ssolbergj (talk) 13:17, 18 May 2015 (UTC)

Proposing CoA of Italy[edit]

As you know, Italy doesn't have a coat of arms since it has an emblem.

I think you can create in your CoAseries an Italian one, inspired by the Stella d'Italia: gueules, a mullet argent. (maybe like this I found)

This is only an advice!

Speedy deletion nomination of List of tallest buildings in the European Union/photograph[edit]

Hello Ssolbergj,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged List of tallest buildings in the European Union/photograph for deletion, because it seems to be inappropriate for a variety of reasons.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. ubiquity (talk) 21:41, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

Template:German Federal States[edit]

Hi. Before I begin, I would like to state that I do not wish to get into any kind of argument, I would just like to talk peacefully about this.

I spent a great deal of time creating a new template for the states of Germany, positioning the state names and adjusting the image size to an appropriate ratio was a great deal of work. I was also complimented by a couple of users and friends and colleagues of mine who saw my work. My reasoning for this revision was as follows:
1. The complex font used on the old template was difficult to read when compared to the default font.
2. The old font did not look very "clean".
3. The new design provided consistency with the templates for other German state templates (German Empire, Weimar Republic, etc.).
4. The new design matched the template used on German Wikipedia for the states of Germany and also other templates on various language Wikipedias for administrative divisions of other countries.
5. The flags of the states were used instead of the coat of arms as the flags are far more recognisable (especially to people outside of Germany) and this gave consistency with the German version and versions of past German nations.

In my personal opinion, the new design was aesthetically superior to the original design primarily due to the map and template design that is consistent with other template maps. I would like to discuss the possibility of returning to my design (if consensus is necessary, I am happy to do so). I do not wish to enter into an edit war or another kind of conflict. Thanks.

File source problem with File:Europa.eu.png[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Europa.eu.png. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the page from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of the website's terms of use of its content. If the original copyright holder is a party unaffiliated with the website, that author should also be credited. Please add this information by editing the image description page.

If the necessary information is not added within the next days, the image will be deleted. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please refer to the image use policy to learn what images you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. Please also check any other files you have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged.

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Copying within Wikipedia requires proper attribution[edit]

Information icon Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you copied or moved text from one or more pages into Military operations of the European Union. While you are welcome to re-use Wikipedia's content, here or elsewhere, Wikipedia's licensing does require that you provide attribution to the original contributor(s). When copying within Wikipedia, this is supplied at minimum in an edit summary at the page into which you've copied content. It is good practice, especially if copying is extensive, to also place a properly formatted {{copied}} template on the talk pages of the source and destination. The attribution has been provided for this situation, but if you have copied material between pages before, even if it was a long time ago, please provide attribution for that duplication. You can read more about the procedure and the reasons at Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia. Thank you. If you are the sole author of the prose that was moved, attribution is not required. — Diannaa (talk) 17:17, 23 June 2016 (UTC)

Coat of arms of Montenegro[edit]

Please refrain from making unconstructive edits such as this one. You replaced the official CoA with a variant of a detail of the CoA. I do not know where you found the image, and I am assuming you acted in good faith, but please do not use anything but official insignia in Montenegro-related articles or templates. Cheers. Sideshow Bob 06:49, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

I agree. I see you have been replacing official coats of arms with your own image versions, such as here [2]. Although I am sure you acted in good faith, please stick to the official versions. Thank you. Gryffindor (talk) 10:24, 28 June 2016 (UTC)

June 2016[edit]

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Template:Coat of arms. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Please be particularly aware that Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing.  Sandstein  20:42, 28 June 2016 (UTC)

Well, the onus is on you to establish a consensus if you want to change the status quo. Apparently you are not interested in engaging in discussion. - Ssolbergj (talk) 21:14, 28 June 2016 (UTC)

A reply has been posted on the talk page of the article. Desist from this edit war, you are not contributing in a constructive manner. Gryffindor (talk) 11:38, 30 June 2016 (UTC)

Copyright violations[edit]

Copyright problem icon Your addition to Europol has been removed, as it appears to have added copyrighted material to Wikipedia without evidence of permission from the copyright holder. If you are the copyright holder, please read Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials for more information on uploading your material to Wikipedia. For legal reasons, Wikipedia cannot accept copyrighted material, including text or images from print publications or from other websites, without an appropriate and verifiable license. All such contributions will be deleted. You may use external websites or publications as a source of information, but not as a source of content, such as sentences or images—you must write using your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing. Control copyright icon Hello Ssolbergj, and welcome to Wikipedia. While we appreciate your contributing to Wikipedia, there are certain things you must keep in mind about using information from your sources to avoid copyright or plagiarism issues here.

  • You can only copy/translate a small amount of a source, and you must mark what you take as a direct quotation with double quotation marks (") and cite the source using an inline citation. You can read about this at Wikipedia:Non-free content in the sections on "text". See also Help:Referencing for beginners, for how to cite sources here.
  • Aside from limited quotation, you must put all information in your own words and structure, in proper paraphrase. Following the source's words too closely can create copyright problems, so it is not permitted here; see Wikipedia:Close paraphrasing. (There is a college-level introduction to paraphrase, with examples, hosted by the Online Writing Lab of Purdue.) Even when using your own words, you are still, however, asked to cite your sources to verify information and to demonstrate that the content is not original research.
  • Our primary policy on using copyrighted content is Wikipedia:Copyrights. You may also want to review Wikipedia:Copy-paste.

Given that you've been editing here for quite some time, and have a significant number of edits, I'm concerned that you are adding copyrighted content to wikipedia. I hope this is a one time issue, and not something that has been going on for some time? TDL (talk) 17:21, 26 December 2016 (UTC)

The content was written by me, but of course I'll add a reference to the public website describing this new police network. This is not "copyvio" at all IMO. - Ssolbergj (talk) 17:34, 26 December 2016 (UTC)

Do we have to go through this line-by-line? You literally performed a straight word-for-word copy-paste job from the source. That is a copyvio.

History

In 2012(eg) at a fugitives conference attended by 24 national fugitive teams of the European Union, a motion was put forward to create a European network of national fugitive teams, named ENFAST. This motion was adopted by the European Council on 1st of January 2013. The Belgian FAST took on the first Presidency for a two-year period (2013-2014). The German FAST is currently continuing the project under its Presidency for another two years (2015-2016) after which the Dutch FAST will take over the Presidency (2017-2018), ensuring the continuity of the project.

It's simply not believable that you independently wrote this identical text to the source. Some if this was subsequently removed, but my spotcheck revealed that some copyvio content remained. Please do not restore. TDL (talk) 21:35, 26 December 2016 (UTC)

What i actually wrote, my last edit before you reverted:

The European Network of Fugitive Active Search Teams (ENFAST) is a network of national police organisations tasked with locating and arresting fugitives. This initiative was launched in 2012 to facilitate the tracing and arresting of internationally wanted criminals who have committed serious crimes. ENFAST is funded by the European Union's programme for the Prevention of and Fight against Crime (ISEC).[1]

The network is facilitated by the Europol's Platform for Experts (EPE). Europol also maintains a list of Europe’s Most Wanted Fugitives (EMWL), akin to the list of ten most wanted fugitives published by the American Federal Bureau of Investigation.[2] In 2016 Europol arranged an online 'Christmas calendar' of wanted fugitives, which lead to three arrests.[3]

This is what I wrote and it is not copyvio. Do you agree? Please reinsert it and stop claiming it is copyvio - because it isn't. - Ssolbergj (talk) 10:04, 28 December 2016 (UTC)

The copyvio text I linked above was added by by your account. Copyvio content cannot be added to the project, even if you plan to subsequently remove it. Wikipedia publishes the entire history of the article, hence even past revisions, which contain copyvios, are still published and expose the project (and yourself personally) to legal liability.
And no, the last revision of what you added still retained residual copyvios, for instance the word for word plagiarized sentence frgements below.

PESCO / Main article[edit]

Hey Ssolbergj,

I don't think that CSDP is the main article for PESCO. The linked section does not provide significantly more information, like PESCO projects and nations participation in them (I'm currently writing that). Instead I would like to see a dedicated new page for PESCO, since there will probably be a number of new projects and missions with the PESCO badge that will require more space and sections. PESCO is a project linked to CSDP but not sufficiently close enough to be in the same article. Haage42 (talk) 21:14, 17 December 2017 (UTC)

Hi. PESCO is based on a separate article in the EU treaty, and as such I think it's currently more appropriate to have CSDP as PESCO's main page than that of Enhanced cooperation. I do however agree that a new, separate PESCO article is a good idea. The articles Military of the European Union and CSDP have a significant degree of overlapping scope, and this may need to be sorted out, but maybe existing intergovernmental bodies like the European Air Transport Command will be incorporated in PESCO - and that may give some organisational clarity. In any case; the CSDP's article is in quite a bad state and needs improvement - and perhaps that should be given priority over creating additional articles. - Ssolbergj (talk) 21:54, 17 December 2017 (UTC)
Hey, just wanted to say good work on getting that new article set up and running. I was thinking I ought to do it myself when I noticed you'd already got started on it the other day and it seems you've already got most of what I was thinking about. Quick work, and great to see you're still super active on here. Have a good day.- J.Logan`t: 16:16, 22 December 2017 (UTC)
Hello, happy brexit and happy new year! Good to see that you're back. I have had relatively long wikibreaks myself, but this time I though it was worth writing about the apparent CSDP breakthrough, although the Daily Telegraph could be right that the MCPP remains a mere call centre, and maybe the only EU develops only 15 % of NATO's present capabilities before the UK rejoins in 15 years and spoils the party. Hopefully though, Macron's parliament ratifies the Treaty establishing the European Defence Community and creates the European army overnight. The MCPP article was actually already created, but under a different name and without any links or categories: [3]
Your contributions on brexit were also really needed; Impact of Brexit on the European Union is an excellent article. - Ssolbergj (talk) 15:38, 4 January 2018 (UTC)

Image map[edit]

Hello. You are the creator of Template:EU imagemap. I want to create an image map using File:LimassolDistrict (1).png. I know how to do it. The problem is to have the coordinates of each place. I am using polygons but is too difficult and need a lot of time. And the result is not so good. Is there a way to easy choose the shape of each place and have the coordinates of the place?

Copying within Wikipedia requires proper attribution[edit]

Information icon Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you copied or moved text from Military of the European Union into Common Security and Defence Policy. While you are welcome to re-use Wikipedia's content, here or elsewhere, Wikipedia's licensing does require that you provide attribution to the original contributor(s). When copying within Wikipedia, this is supplied at minimum in an edit summary at the page into which you've copied content, disclosing the copying and linking to the copied page, e.g., copied content from [[page name]]; see that page's history for attribution. It is good practice, especially if copying is extensive, to also place a properly formatted {{copied}} template on the talk pages of the source and destination. The attribution has been provided for this situation, but if you have copied material between pages before, even if it was a long time ago, please provide attribution for that duplication.

Thank you for uploading File:EADS logo.svg. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this file on Wikipedia may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content.

Please be aware that a non-free use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for files used under the non-free content policy require both a copyright tag and a non-free use rationale.

If it is determined that the file does not qualify under the non-free content policy, it might be deleted by an administrator seven days after the file was tagged in accordance with section F7 of the criteria for speedy deletion.

Proposed deletion of Military equipment of the European Union[edit]

Notice

The article Military equipment of the European Union has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

The EU doesnt actually have any Military Equipment, the article list national assets so the article could be considered misleading at best

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

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

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Speedy deletion nomination of International Military Staff[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on International Military Staff requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page appears to be an unambiguous copyright infringement. This page appears to be a direct copy from https://www.nato.int/cps/en/natohq/topics_64557.htm. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images taken from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites or other printed material as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If the external website or image belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text or image — which means allowing other people to use it for any reason — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. The same holds if you are not the owner but have their permission. If you are not the owner and do not have permission, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission for how you may obtain it. You might want to look at Wikipedia's copyright policy for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Hey, can you please explain your rational for merging Deputy Chairman of the NATO Military Committee into the Chairman article? Thanks! Garuda28 (talk) 16:15, 15 July 2018 (UTC)

Hi Garuda. The reason for this bold merge was that the article is quite small (and gets even smaller when general, duplicated information about the NATO Military Committee is removed), and less significant.

An article you recently created, Armorial of Australia, does not have enough sources and citations as written to remain published. It needs more citations from reliable, independent sources. (?)

Armorial_of_the_United_States[edit]

As the creator of this FL I'm curious if you are trying to single-highhandedly destroy it? This looks nothing like the FL that was promoted and it may need to be demoted, or radically changed (which I would be willing to do)... Pinging the FL delegates @Giants2008, PresN, and The Rambling Man: -Godot13 (talk) 07:12, 4 April 2019 (UTC)

The list that was featured was about historical seals from 1876 by Louis Prang. The list has been hijacked and the topic completely changed. I plan to undo/revert your changes beginning 9 March 2019 where you copied and pasted the entire FL onto an existing article (and copied the FL promotion template as well). Then I will ask for the redirect from the original article to your article to be reverted.--Godot13 (talk) 17:12, 4 April 2019 (UTC)
Well, the article in question was different, and concerned the book State Arms of the Union. I reckon there could be a separate article about that book (armorial/roll of arms). - Ssolbergj (talk) 19:49, 4 April 2019 (UTC)
I'm just now seeing how you slowly took the original article/list and renamed it once then cut and pasted it into another article and made a redirect. Any you gave the end article the FL star of the original FL... If this isn't fixed within a week, I'll start a case at ANI. There is no way this is acceptable behavior. I need to see if it rises to the level of Wikipedia:Plagiarism as well.--Godot13 (talk) 21:39, 5 April 2019 (UTC)
Wikipedia's content is all free license, so the point about plagiarism is not relevant. I'm not intentending to 'steal' or 'undermine' anyone's content or featured article status. I think both the historical article you created and the one displaying the current collection of arms may exist in parallell, the former being the one with featured status. - Ssolbergj (talk) 11:11, 6 April 2019 (UTC)
Do you plan to fix the situation or should I seek another remedy?-Godot13 (talk) 17:40, 6 April 2019 (UTC)
I've added a link in top of each article. - Ssolbergj (talk) 09:08, 7 April 2019 (UTC)

Undiscussed mass restructuring of Brexit articles[edit]

Hi Ssolbergj. Today you were on an editing spree, moving a shitload of content from some pages to other pages, all related to Brexit. I think we have managed to revert most of those edits.

There were several issues with your edits. None of your edits were discussed beforehand, and while one can make changes without discussion, the sheer scale of your restructuring means that you should definitely have sought a consensus for your changes beforehand. If you still thinks the changes are an improvement, please propose them and then we can talk about it. But until then, we will stay at our current structure. The second major issue is that you did not provide any attribution whatsoever, when you copied content from one article to another. This is something you of copyright reasons must do when moving content. See WP:CWW.

On a minor point, it would be nice if you gave edit summaries to your edits, so we can see what they are about, and your rationale for performing them. ― Hebsen(previously Heb the best) (talk) 21:25, 11 September 2019 (UTC)

Categories emptied without due process[edit]

In the last two or three days, you have unilaterally without going through the WP:CFD process emptied Category:Formations of the NATO Military Command Structure and Category:Formations of the NATO Military Command Structure 1952–1994, both of which meet WP:CATDEF as categories containing articles whose defining characteristic is that the formations in them are military units and formations. You have attempted to substitute categories on Allied Command Operations and Allied Command transformation, but the formations within those categories do not meet WP:CATDEF - they are not defined by their subordination to ACO and ACT; if NATO was reorganised again, they could be shifted to new commands without changing their essential nature.

In further violation of the due process you then attempted to blank one of the category pages [4] which is *definitely* not the way to go about the process.

Thus I'm sorry to say you have acted in breech of the due process, WP:CfD, and I am calling for administrator action; requesting input from Nick-D, Peacemaker67, and any other administrator with or without military knowledge they might wish to call in..

There's a perfectly good way of nominating categories for deletion, WP:CfD and if you think these categories or others are undesireable, I would encourage you to use it. Buckshot06 (talk) 16:51, 23 October 2019 (UTC)

It has to be very frustrating and demoralising when you do all that work [Brexit, Earthworks] only to have it reverted. It was depressing to have to revert it. May I suggest that in future you allow a lot of time for people to see your proposal and comment on it. For one article, a potentially controversial edit needs a week. For something involving multiple articles, a month is not too much as many editors restrict their editing to once a week. Also, it is not enough just to add a hat note that says "it has been proposed" unless there actually is a proposal: it is essential that you write up the reasons why a change should be made. --John Maynard Friedman (talk) 16:09, 8 December 2019 (UTC)

Google Code-In 2019 is coming - please mentor some documentation tasks![edit]

Hello,

Google Code-In, Google-organized contest in which the Wikimedia Foundation participates, starts in a few weeks. This contest is about taking high school students into the world of opensource. I'm sending you this message because you recently edited a documentation page at the English Wikipedia.

I would like to ask you to take part in Google Code-In as a mentor. That would mean to prepare at least one task (it can be documentation related, or something else - the other categories are Code, Design, Quality Assurance and Outreach) for the participants, and help the student to complete it. Please sign up at the contest page and send us your Google account address to google-code-in-admins@lists.wikimedia.org, so we can invite you in!

From my own experience, Google Code-In can be fun, you can make several new friends, attract new people to your wiki and make them part of your community.

If you have any questions, please let us know at google-code-in-admins@lists.wikimedia.org.

Thank you!
