Well, I felt I had to step in when I saw you were being given erroneous information about Anglican doctrine:) Glad to have helped. "Henrican" is indeed a word, but much less common than Elizabethan, and most people would be confused on first seeing it.... - Nunh-huh 05:01, 12 January 2010 (UTC)

Pronunciation of name[edit]

Just a matter of curiosity, how is your name pronounced? Either IPA ot standard English syllables would be useful. Thanks. Bielle (talk) 00:28, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

You put the following on my talk page: "Hi. Thanks for the message. See [1]; [2]. :)". I can't work out the pronunciation of the characters. Obviously, I don't read any of these scripts, so I would appreciate a personal "gloss" if you like. You can reply here; I have your page watchlisted for the moment. Thanks, Bielle (talk) 01:41, 11 March 2010 (UTC)
"Da Wei"; now I just have to remember what the characters look like so that I know it is you. Thank you. Bielle (talk) 03:32, 11 March 2010 (UTC)
Thank you for putting the pronunciation on your user page. That is likely to help a lot of people. Next, you might consider adding it to your signature, and make things really easy for those of us who have never learned the character sets.  :-) Bielle (talk) 03:39, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

Circular referencing[edit]

Re: this edit --- thanks for the edit, but please keep in mind that Wikipedia can't be a reference for itself. Facts in articles shouldn't be cited to other language Wikipedias; instead, they should be cited to external reliable sources. Cheers, cab (talk) 01:02, 12 March 2010 (UTC)


Thanks buddy for answering my question! (talk) 13:53, 14 March 2010 (UTC)

If you feel I am a specialist:-). My mom makes Chinese food all the time. Yes I did make a lot of changes to the cuisine articles. I'd like to make a cuisine task force at wikiproject food and drink. Those articles, especially the Cantonese cuisine article had a lot of POV. Didn't like it one bit. If there's any POV or original research let me know, and I'll take it out. I hope I work with you in the future. (talk) 03:21, 15 March 2010 (UTC)
No, please pester! Sure, you can explain the pros of username. (talk) 09:45, 16 March 2010 (UTC)
That's true, but I stand up for IP rights:-) (talk) 09:55, 16 March 2010 (UTC)
 :-) Yep, those are those rights:-) Me too! I would love to work with you in the future as well!. Also, I do have an account: 100110100. Sometimes I use it:-) (talk) 10:05, 16 March 2010 (UTC)
 :-) Cool! Where are you from!:-) (talk) 10:32, 16 March 2010 (UTC)
Whereabouts? I should maybe put some of those userboxes I once had back on my page:-) (talk) 10:43, 16 March 2010 (UTC)
What foods do you like? Are you ethnically Cantonese? (talk) 10:48, 16 March 2010 (UTC)
I guess it's a cultural affection, but your Mandarin? (talk) 11:15, 16 March 2010 (UTC)
Oh really? Where did you get that statistic? How about the states? In 2031, 28% of the population will be a visible minority. (talk) 11:54, 16 March 2010 (UTC)
What's the stats for states:-) (talk) 14:05, 16 March 2010 (UTC)
Hmm, thanks. What do they categorize midden eastern people and Indians? (talk) 00:41, 17 March 2010 (UTC)


Kurdistan is not a state but the truth of 40 million Kurds exists. Also it is not fair to sacrifice everything about newroz for the benefit of Persians. Even Persians themselves confirm that Kurds are much ancient than them in the Mesopotamia region. The reality is that Newroz is like Zoroast of a Kurdish origin. I am not bias about Kurds but I am against sacrificing truth for any purpose. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Cyrus abdi (talkcontribs) 08:05, 19 March 2010 (UTC)


I did not mean you sacrifice anything. I meant by that Persians are monopolizing it and some other people who don't know the truth simply confirm it. Unfortunately due to lack of powerful Kurdish state many things in their culture have been stolen. In Iraq and Turkey and Syria, it is only the Kurds who know what is newroz and celebrate it as part of their cultural identity. But even in the UN resolution there is no mention of Kurds. Turkish government has banned newroz and even the letter "W" which is absent in their alphabet, but now UN resolution has idiotically mentioned the name of Turkey as a celebrator of Newroz.

Newroz fire was first set in Babylon (today southern Iraq) more than 6000 years ago. --Cyrus abdi (talk) 08:19, 19 March 2010 (UTC)

Cat and subcat[edit]

No that's fine as is. Some editors like to work on stubs so having them listed in there makes the stubs easier to find. at the same time having them in the regular category makes it easier for other editors and readers to find. something lame from CBW 04:27, 21 March 2010 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Categorization has a lot of information, probably too much. Basically you only want articles in the parent category or a sub-category, usually not both. So Foreign trade of Argentina would be in Category:Foreign trade by country and not Category:International trade. However, that doesn't always work. Look at Category:Islands of Kitikmeot Region. It has a sub-category Category:Victoria Island Category:Victoria Island (Canada) but the main article Victoria Island (Canada) is also in both the Islands of Kitikmeot Region and Victoria Island categories. I usually try to keep the parent category as empty as possible, by using sub-categories but that may be just me. Check the talk page if it has one for categories as it may have some information. something lame from CBW 09:30, 21 March 2010 (UTC)
Stubs do tend to be a bit different. For example Admiralty Island (Nunavut) is in Category:Victoria Island (Canada), Category:Uninhabited islands of Kitikmeot Region (this is also in the category Islands of Kitikmeot Region, Category:Islands of Kitikmeot Region and Category:Kitikmeot Region, Nunavut geography stubs. The Category:Kitikmeot Region, Nunavut geography stubs is in Category:Nunavut geography stubs, which in turn is in Category:Nunavut stubs and Category:Geography of Nunavut. And both of the last two categories are in Category:Nunavut. By the way if you intend to create a new stub category, but not an stub article, see Wikipedia:WikiProject Stub sorting and Wikipedia:WikiProject Stub sorting/Proposals#Proposing new stub types - procedure. They tend to get a bit upset when they found that I had created a whole bunch of new stub categories without asking first. something lame from CBW 10:10, 21 March 2010 (UTC)
No problem. Yes I do live in Cambridge Bay, Nunavut, been here since about 1995. It's on the southeast side of Victoria Island and it's −30 °C (−22 °F) this morning. something lame from CBW 10:29, 21 March 2010 (UTC)
Yep I really do like it here. I came up in 1974 and never left. Moved here, to the big city, from Ulukhaktok, Northwest Territories. Prices for flights are high and so are most things like food and rent. Air travel slowly expands over time but it never gets cheaper. People and freight (food and other supplies) fly in but only people fly out. Passengers are subsiding the empty planes as they fly out. We need an export but there's nothing here. Even mining doesn't help as they use their own services. something lame from CBW 11:08, 21 March 2010 (UTC)
Ah yes, Klengenberg. There's a lot of people descended from him in Cambridge, Ulukhaktok and Kugluktuk, Nunavut, including my own kids through their mum. There are others to the west and I right into Alaska. The smaller places up here tend to have higher prices than we do due to our better air connections and being a regional centre. I don't speak much in the way of Inuktitut, it's called Inuinnaqtun here. Sure, leave a message anytime. I'm on most days and usually not that busy. something lame from CBW 11:37, 21 March 2010 (UTC)

learning Chinese[edit]

Thanks for the offer and sorry for the delay. The main reason I have the Chinese-0 box is because I sometimes edit chinese culture articles and do not want somebody to think I actually know the language. I'm slightly familiar with the different dialects and the difference between traditional characters and pinion. If you would like to send me some resources on how to better understand the language that would be nice. - Stillwaterising (talk) 01:44, 27 March 2010 (UTC)


I'm not sure how "Diho" came to be. I'm not sure if it's from another dialect, or if the guy wanted a slightly different or easier-to-pronounce English name... WhisperToMe (talk) 21:25, 28 June 2010 (UTC)

Current Events Portal[edit]

Hello, I reverted your edit to the Current Events Portal today which created Religion as a subheader. I agree that "Religion" is a little more accurate than "Arts, culture and entertainment", but we can't wantonly create a subheader for every possible topic. The idea is to split it up into categories. While Religion has been considered as a subcategory, we feel it would be hit too rarely, and thus would fall under other subcategories (Law & Crime for the abuse scandals, AC&E for religious festivals, etc., or "Other Current Events" for events that don't fit into other subcategories). Please don't restore your change without first conferring with other Current Events editors. If you'd like to argue for Religion as a subcategory, please visit the Current Events Portal Reform Taskforce Page ( Thanks! Blue Crest (talk) 20:58, 13 July 2010 (UTC)



Just to let you know that material in the lead does not have to be cited.

There are two ways to write the lead - one with citations and one without

All information in the lead should be in the body of the article and cited. If this is not so then the material should be tagged in the obody or a section started in the talk page where you can tell the editors of the problems you have found

Norwich, like almost all English towns and cities, have their oldest areas in the middle. It is uncommon and pretty rare that a city would not have this feature. They are usually from Roman, Saxon or Mediaevil times.
