Philip J. Cohen[edit]

G'day 23, I am going to AGF here, on the basis that we seem to be working pretty well together where our interests coincide and have been keeping things balanced on WWI in Yugoslavia articles. I see that (back in May last year) you were involved in some of this utter nonsense on the Philip J. Cohen article, which I have been trying to sort out over the last few days. I have now obtained a copy of Israeli (2013), and the content of the article that is sourced from that book is extremely skewed. Taken as a whole, Israeli, if anything, agrees with Cohen, rather than disagreeing with him. In most cases, if not all, Israeli praises Cohen's work, he really doesn't denigrate it, describing it as (and I'm paraphrasing) as "definitively demonstrating the involvement of Nedic and others in the Orthodox Church as aware and supportive of the German plan to exterminate Jews, and not loathe to lend a hand when asked", for example. I have removed some of the really egregious stuff, which has been cherry-picked from footnotes which have been commented on negatively by Israeli, and do not reflect Israeli's actual conclusions. My sincere apologies if I have misunderstood your edits. Regards, Peacemaker67 (crack... thump) 13:22, 6 February 2015 (UTC)

3RR warning[edit]

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at Visoki Dečani shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. To resolve the content dispute, please do not revert or change the edits of others when you get reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. The best practice at this stage is to discuss, not edit-war. See BRD for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.Gjirokastra15 (talk) 00:17, 7 February 2015 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:Emin Xhinovci.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Emin Xhinovci.jpg. I noticed that this file is being used under a claim of fair use. However, I think that the way it is being used fails the first non-free content criterion. This criterion states that files used under claims of fair use may have no free equivalent; in other words, if the file could be adequately covered by a freely-licensed file or by text alone, then it may not be used on Wikipedia. If you believe this file is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and add the text {{di-replaceable fair use disputed|<your reason>}} below the original replaceable fair use template, replacing <your reason> with a short explanation of why the file is not replaceable.
  2. On the file discussion page, write a full explanation of why you believe the file is not replaceable.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Eeekster (talk) 20:33, 19 February 2015 (UTC)

Croatian War of Independence infobox[edit]

Why are you constantly removing the sources/refs from the infobox? MoS says nothing about us not placing the refs there, and in fact that would be contrary to WP: Verifiability that requires that everything be properly sourced. Doesn't matter if there are already sources in the main body of the article. Those refs are there to source the paragraphs in question. EkoGraf (talk) 21:21, 28 April 2015 (UTC)

(NB:Talk page stalker) - That's incorrect. So long as everything in the infobox is properly cited in the body of the article, there is no need to cite in the infobox. In fact, it just clutters the infobox and is untidy. Regards, Peacemaker67 (crack... thump) 21:59, 28 April 2015 (UTC)

Agree with PM67; I've contributed to dozens of Good Articles and helped promote one Featured Article and nobody has ever insisted on cluttering the infobox with citations as long as the assertions were properly referenced in the article body. 23 editor (talk) 22:55, 28 April 2015 (UTC)

This is the first I'm hearing of this. I've been working on hundreds of battle articles from at least five different wars over the last four years and editors always requested the figures be properly sourced in the box. If it cluttered and made it untidy I would perhaps agree, but I'm not seeing that in this particular case. The references are placed with free space left in their respective rows. PS I found the 8,039 RSK dead and 3,600 JNA wounded figure, allegedly per the Mestrovic source, to be incorrect since Mestrovic only cited the JNA dead figure and made no mention of RSK dead and JNA wounded, so I removed those numbers. EkoGraf (talk) 11:49, 29 April 2015 (UTC)

If it makes you feel better, you can leave the references. Agree regarding Mestrovic. Just a couple points of "disagreement" then: The ARBiH part of the casualties section on the infobox should be changed to Bosnia and Herzegovina, since it was the country that sustained civilian casualties. Cumulative casualty ranges should be avoid (i.e. mingling military losses with civilian losses like we are for both the RSK and CRO). If you don't mind, I'll make the changes myself. 23 editor (talk) 12:28, 29 April 2015 (UTC)
Per your request I removed the cumulative casualty ranges (although they were also cited in the sources) and removed the A from ARBiH (Army of...) to indicate Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina (RBiH) casualties since we got the civilian figure as well. Didn't even notice the A until you pointed it out just now. EkoGraf (talk) 13:15, 29 April 2015 (UTC)

Bijeljina massacre[edit]

I am not obliged too explain any edits I make on Wikipedia; and the addition of the infobox was too show the capture of the city as there was indeed a small amount of fighting before the massacre.Citadel48 (talk) 01:17, 2 May 2015 (UTC)

@Citadel48: You are obliged to explain any and all edits on Wikipedia, especially when they're as pointless and redundant as this . Adding infoboxes must be discussed with other editors (see WP:INFOBOXUSE), and as far as this one is concerned, it doesn't contribute in the slightest to the reader's understanding of the event. Just because a takeover happened, doesn't mean it needs to be mapped out with an infobox. Also, stop tagging all your edits as minor when they aren't. 23 editor (talk) 02:22, 2 May 2015 (UTC)

Talk back[edit]

You are not one too decide whether a edit is "redundant", and it does matter who made the video.

The infobox details the capture, as stated earlier, there was fighting before the massacre.Citadel48 (talk) 17:17, 2 May 2015 (UTC)

And you aren't one to decide what is necessary, either. Not every instance of fighting warrants an infobox, and what you're doing is adding clutter—nothing more. Wikipedia articles are built through consensus, not reckless editing. Per WP:RS, Youtube cannot be cited as a source. Videos can be, but you clearly aren't citing the videos, are you? I suggest you read through WP:INFOBOXUSE and WP:RS before making any wholesale changes. If you aren't familiar, Bijeljina massacre is GA and by adding sources contrary to WP:RS and cluttering the article you are considerably degrading its quality. 23 editor (talk) 17:23, 2 May 2015 (UTC)

I am citing the video, that's why I placed sources there. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Citadel48 (talkcontribs) 17:28, 2 May 2015 (UTC)

I understand you're citing the video, but you can't use Youtube as a medium, as you have here . You've been warned about this before , and obviously don't get it. 23 editor (talk) 17:37, 2 May 2015 (UTC)

It seems too me you care a lot more about the perceived quality of the article than the factual integrity. The infobox does not degrade the article; and the sources provided are legitimate and have been verified. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Citadel48 (talkcontribs) 17:40, 2 May 2015 (UTC)

This discussion clearly isn't going anywhere. If you are having difficulty understanding WP rules or policy, go to Wikipedia:Teahouse and consult with the fine folks there, who would be more than happy to answer any questions you might have. 23 editor (talk) 17:46, 2 May 2015 (UTC)

I have to agree the discussion is not constructive. You are trying to selectively challenge trivial aspects of the editing process. The fundamental issue is that I and many others who live outside of Bosnia and Serbia and who have no Bosnian or Serbian heritage find documentaries, especially made by the likes of CNN and BBC, a relatively credible source of information. I am citing the documentaries. Coming up with the Youtube argument is disingenuous, you can think and should think of Youtube as a library where copyrighted material is stored and available for public use. FYI the policy states that: "There is no blanket ban on linking to YouTube or other user-submitted video sites, as long as the links abide by the guidelines on this page."Citadel48 (talk) 18:21, 2 May 2015 (UTC)

You obviously haven't read WP:YOUTUBE carefully enough. What you've omitted is "...copyright is of particular concern. Many YouTube videos of newscasts, shows or other content of interest to Wikipedia visitors are copyright violations and should not be linked. Links should be evaluated for inclusion with due care on a case-by-case basis. Links to online videos should also identify additional software necessary for readers to view the content." What's preventing you from going to https://books.google.com/ and fishing up a few sources there? 23 editor (talk) 18:30, 2 May 2015 (UTC)

You seem to see the trees but miss the forest. I love it how you enjoy lecturing others. But have you ever heard of the fair use doctrine? Fair use is a legal doctrine that says you can reuse copyright-protected material under certain circumstances without getting permission from the copyright owner. To put it bluntly, you have to admit that a claim that Youtube would post a CNN video in a way that infringes US copyrights, or that I would do so by providing a link to that video, is pretty absurd. There are too many controls that would prevent this from happening. Nothing is preventing me from going to the other sources you are suggesting - but it is my choice, remember. I happen to believe that videos are more powerful than words, and CNN and BBC are more credible for the average user than a publication by an unknown and, potentially biased pseudo historian type. Citadel48 (talk) 18:48, 2 May 2015 (UTC)

I really have no time for this. If you have any questions, go to Wikipedia:Teahouse. If that isn't your cup of tea, don't complain when people revert your edits and label them non-constructive. Don't post on my talk page again. 23 editor (talk) 18:55, 2 May 2015 (UTC)

Miralem Pjanić[edit]

If you persist in adding off-topic material concerning an individual who is not the subject of the biography to the Miralem Pjanić article, I may consider requesting that you be blocked from editing. AndyTheGrump (talk) 19:43, 25 June 2015 (UTC)

@AndyTheGrump: It's not off-topic and it's reliably sourced. Why are you taking the side of a troll who has used socks in the past? 23 editor (talk) 19:44, 25 June 2015 (UTC)
It is off-topic, end of story. The article is about Miralem Pjanić, not a cousin that gets no other mention in the article. And I am 'taking the side' of encyclopaedic content. Nothing more, nothing less. AndyTheGrump (talk) 19:57, 25 June 2015 (UTC)
I disagree. The guy's wife and kid aren't talked about in the rest of the article either yet they get mentioned (and rightfully so, that's what "Personal life" sections are for). The fact that the two men in questions are related isn't in dispute as it is supported by reliable sources (in keeping with WP:RS and WP:BLP). Having said that, it's curious that something as major as having a cousin die fighting for ISIL wouldn't be mentioned even in passing. The other editors WP:IDON'TLIKEIT argument didn't help his case at all, but it's not like yours is any better. 23 editor (talk) 20:07, 25 June 2015 (UTC)
It is off topic - though if you insist that this material should be added, I suggest you either ask at WP:BLPN, or start a RfC. Add it again without consensus and I will report the matter. Consensus is against you. AndyTheGrump (talk) 20:13, 25 June 2015 (UTC)

Grammar[edit]

G'day 23, I'm working on a series of lists of Partisan detachments, and as you might imagine, some have pretty obscure names. But what I struggle with most is the grammar. Sometimes I can work it out, sometimes not. For example, Bijeljinski odred is easy (Bijeljina detachment), but what is the locality indicated by Bjelimički odred? Is it Bjelimič detachment? I hope you don't mind me asking you these questions. And don't forget to consider nominating for Milhist coord. Cheers, Peacemaker67 (crack... thump) 21:25, 13 September 2015 (UTC)

No idea, I've never heard of Bjelimič. Do you know what particular area it might be located? Maybe I can track it down. 23 editor (talk) 23:57, 14 September 2015 (UTC)
"Bjelimički" refers to Bjelimići, a region (group of villages) in the south-eastern part of the Municipality of Konjic. Vladimir (talk) 17:51, 17 September 2015 (UTC)

13 April 1999 Albania–Yugoslav border incident[edit]

Hi mate, I noticed that you moved the title of this article to distinguish it and I think that is a good thing. I don't oppose it but do you think the full date is necessary? In my opinion, I think 1999 Albania–Yugoslav border incident would be a better title as there was only one incident in 1999 between the two countries. Your thoughts? Regards IJA (talk) 10:08, 21 September 2015 (UTC)

See my reply to User:Pincrete on Talk:13 April 1999 Albania–Yugoslav border incident. There were several exchanges between the Yugoslav Army and Albanian Army during 1999. For example, on 20 April, the two sides exchanged gunfire for 6 hours at Qafa e Prushit , not to mention about a half-dozen instances of Yugoslav Army mortars falling inside Albania between March and June (killing about 10 civilians total). 23 editor (talk) 22:17, 21 September 2015 (UTC)

To be honest, I don't think it's good enough to be listed as A-Class let alone FA (especially after User:Citadel48's "contributions"). A lot of work is needed (copy-edits, source and neutrality checks, etc.) I'd get someone from the copy editors' guild to look at it first before going for peer review because I seriously doubt it would pass FAC at this point. Potočnik/PRODUCER's version was decent but in the last year or so the article quality has really taken a beating. 23 editor (talk) 23:03, 13 November 2015 (UTC)
I was thinking that it would need a thorough going-over before nominating. I have a few A-Class articles ready or almost ready for FAC, but I wanted to do something different for a change. I'll put it up for a guild c/e as a start point. Cheers, Peacemaker67 (crack... thump) 23:07, 13 November 2015 (UTC)
Of course. Once it's been thoroughly looked over, tweaked and polished I would be more than happy to co-nominate. Just let me to know when you plan to start and I'll come to help with the revamp. All the best, 23 editor (talk) 23:09, 13 November 2015 (UTC)

RfC Draft for Bijeljina massacre article[edit]

Bijeljina[edit]

Just wanted to say there's no hard feelings on my part regardless of the outcome of this RFC. I know some heated words were exchanged, but considering the topic at hand I think it's only natural. We've got the same goal just different thoughts on how to go about it achieving it. Anyway here's to putting the entire ordeal to rest after RFC and getting the article to FA. --Potočnik (talk) 13:15, 15 December 2015 (UTC)

Ditto. Less than 10 percent of my edits are on talk pages. Needless to say, I'm more concerned with editing and expanding articles than entering into week-long melodramas regarding their content.

Prevod[edit]

Da li bi mogao ovo da prevedes ″Nemačka formacija od 14 aviona je 17. aprila 1917. godine krenula da bombarduje pozadinu saveznika, pa je eskadrila N 523 poletela da ih presretne. Tomić je poleteo na svom Njeporu 21 C1, a sa neprijateljem su se sreli iznada sela Kapinjani i Savrljana. Ustremio se na tri nemačka dvoseda, čiji su se mitraljesci uzajamno branili, pa je njegov avion upao u unakrsnu vatru. Pretrpeo je znatna oštećenja, a jedan metak je prekinuo crevo za dovod goriva nakon čega je motor stao. Nije mu ostalo ništa drugo nego da pronađe teren za prinudno sletanje, što je i uradio kod sela Kapinjani. Tomić je ostao nepovređen.″ Hvala unapred.--Свифт (talk) 14:12, 18 January 2016 (UTC)

List of Serbian Eparchies[edit]

Hi, I saw your latest instruction regarding the list of Serbian medieval eparchies in the page Saint Sava. As you can see, present prose text is full of errors and incorrect links, so I fixed all that and made a detailed list of eparchies under the jurisdiction of Saint Sava. That action was disputed by user Zoupan, with no explanation. The recent attempt of the same user to kill the page Eparchy of Lipljan, created by me yesterday with work still in progress, clearly shows that user Zoupan has some other agenda. I asked him for an explanation, and he din not have a single argument to support his actions. Please, take a minute to look at my page Eparchy of Lipljan and you can judge for yourself. Thanks.

Re: Sock[edit]

I see you and another user reverted all those edits from yesterday. I've tagged the IP, but it's been idle for a while now, and the IP address is from a large random dynamic IP block from China (it's /14 and has a Spamhaus PBL entry). Since my other typical spam/malware checks don't indicate it's an open proxy, I won't block it immediately as it's more likely they'll just change it within 24h of original IP assignment. If by any chance you notice another abusive edit from there, {{ping}} me and I'll block it, or tell someone at WP:ANI. If they come back from another IP, feel free to list it at WP:SPI so we start building a pattern. --Joy [shallot] (talk) 11:43, 10 July 2016 (UTC)

Fantasy title : "Patriarch of Serbia"[edit]

Hi, I saw that you initiated a process of reverting changes I made today, correcting titles of the pages of several modern Serbian Patriarchs. So please, look at the talk sections of still uncorrected pages Patriarch Pavle of Serbia and Patriarch Irinej of Serbia. My arguments are: We should not use fantasy titles that never existed! Heads of Serbian Orthodox Church are called Serbian Patriarchs, not "Patriarchs of Serbia" ! Such title never existed in history and it does not exist now. No one was ever called "Патријарх Србије" (Patriarch of Serbia). The title is: Патријарх српски (Serbian Patriarch): Патриарх (noun - Patriarch) and српски (adjective - Serbian). Please, just look at the Google Books for so-called title "Патријарх Србије" : 9 (nine) hits :) And real title: Патријарх српски - 3260 hits !!! This pages should have titles: "Serbian Patriarch Pavle" and "Serbian Patriarch Irinej" because they were "Serbian Patriarchs" and not "Patriarchs of Serbia". Same goes for all other Serbian Patriarchs. Please, go to web page of Serbian Orthodox Church in English: there you have an official translation of the Constitution of SOC, look at the article 11 that defines the title of the patriarch as: "Archbishop of Pech, Metropolitan of Belgrade and Karlovac, and Serbian Patriarch"! As you can see, title is: Serbian Patriarch, not "Patriarch of Serbia". (http://www.spc.rs/eng/church) Sorabino (talk) 00:34, 14 July 2016 (UTC)

About Migration of the Serbs[edit]

Note that Uroš Predić (d. 1953) is in Commons.

Hi, 23 editor. Recently I began translating some history paintings from English Wikipedia to the Spanish one, starting with Jan Matejko's works such as Constitution of May 3, 1791, and I found Paja Jovanović's Migration of the Serbs right after. I have a concern that I stated here (I have some flags in Commons yet I think I asked in the wrong place): should we wait until 2028 since there is not fair use in es.wiki, or just move it to Commons because it was published before 1973? Migration of the Serbs is still a work of applied art published before January 1, 1973 despite Jovanović died 1957. What should I do? Thanks, ·×ald·es 20:55, 23 July 2016 (UTC)

First of all, thanks for translating the article into Spanish. You're doing a huge service to Spanish-speaking readers. As for the photo(s), I would upload locally, as outlined in Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Migration of the Serbs/archive1. 23 editor (talk) 21:34, 23 July 2016 (UTC)
Oh no, thank you. Since there are not fair use policies in Spanich Wikipedia, I think we'll just wait til 2028. Best regards, ·×ald·es 20:36, 24 July 2016 (UTC)

13 April 1999 Albania–Yugoslav border incident adding sources[edit]

I know you are serb , but dont undo my editing, its a fatc.The ex-PM of Albania confirmed that have killed serbian soldiers in Albanian-Yugoslavian border, also the Battle of Košare happened those days 9 April – 10 June 1999 , so the serbs who cross the was: Priština Corps units , 549th Motorized Brigade and 125th Motorized Brigade. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hakuli (talkcontribs) 09:04, 24 July 2016 (UTC)

Direct violation of WP:RS and WP:OR. Contemporary reports say there were no fatalities on either side and that border guards and ad hoc militias confronted 50 paratroopers. The KLA, of course, was present in Albania, but there isn't any evidence it took part in the alleged skirmish. If you have more recent, published, reliable sources, please provide them. 23 editor (talk) 16:36, 24 July 2016 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help.

/* Roman Catholic */ Mother Teresa, and clothes of albanian nun.[edit]

There are not Indian clothing, when Mother Teresa travels to India she opened the first church in Kolkata, after its actions, the Indians converted to Catholicism, and some became nuns where they dressed the same as Mother Teresa or Albanian nuns. There are photos and video, which shows Mother Teresa before I get back to India wearing these clothes.

I undo your edit

--Hakuli (talk) 19:15, 3 September 2016 (UTC)

@Hakuli: I assure you the Indians did not convert to Catholicism en masse because of Mother Teresa. They are still predominantly Hindu. The attire, more precisely the religious habit, is based on the Indian Sari, as explained by biographer Rukmini Chawla .

That evening Mother Teresa went to Father van Exem. He gave her three identical white saris with blue borders. These saris were similar to those worn by women in Calcutta who cleaned the streets and did other menial tasks. This was going to be Mother Teresa's new habit. She wore such a sari for the rest of her life, and it also became the uniform for all her Sisters to this day.

I don't doubt some Albanian Catholic nuns have appropriated the attire in recent decades, but it is 100% Indian. Now revert yourself. 23 editor (talk) 19:29, 3 September 2016 (UTC)

Asdisis[edit]

Hello, I just want to let you know we are not supposed to be editing the SPI archives, which is what you have been doing here. If you want to file a SPI for Asdisis, you can do it by following the instructions located on Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations, where it says "How to open an investigation". WP:TW can be helpful too. Sro23 (talk) 17:44, 4 September 2016 (UTC)

Will do. Thanks. 23 editor (talk) 17:48, 4 September 2016 (UTC)

Request reason:

I live in a high density area with a high concentration of Balkan immigrants, particularly Albanians. My IP address changes very frequently, as I have discovered while using other platforms. I have not discussed the issue with my internet service provider because it's never been a problem (until now, I suppose?). While I appreciate CU's ability to pinpoint any spot on the globe, I think it is more than likely "Besart93" is someone living in my vicinity. I don't see any reason why I would sock an account (whom I reverted here ), write semi-literately and vandalize articles that I had previously contributed constructively to. I recently advised another user not to resort to socks , and have helped in tackling the sock-master Asdisis (who apparently felt it necessary to troll this sub-section just now via sock ) for a few weeks now, which makes it all the more bizarre that I would start sock-vandalizing articles only a few days later. If I wanted to use sockpuppets, I would have done so during the numerous RfCs, controversial discussions and move debates I have engaged in over the past 5 years, and not to write stupid semi-literate comments in article space and on talk pages (what purpose does that serve?) This all makes zero sense. 23 editor (talk) 04:32, 5 September 2016 (UTC)

Decline reason:

There is very clear technical evidence of socking. This isn't someone "in your vicinity", unless the "vicinity" is in your lap typing on your computer. Jezebel's Ponyobons mots 20:47, 6 September 2016 (UTC)

Sajmište concentration camp[edit]

Hello, I saw you reverted my changes to the article Sajmište concentration camp and wanted to get your opinion about the possibility of changing it back, or changing the structure a bit. While current subject is the camp, the same territory also pertains to the fair grounds which were active from 1937 to 1941. when it was transformed into a camp. Here - http://beogradskonasledje.rs/kd/zavod/novi_beograd/staro_sajmiste_logor_gestapoa.html is the article in which you can see that officially it goes by as Old Fair Grounds – the Gestapo Camp. As part of a project writing about cultural monuments, I was instructed to, if possible, write about both periods in one article, so would you reckon it would be better to write a new article with a connection to Sajmiste concentration camp (which has less information about the camp, but is all-encompassing), or maybe it's possible to add some information to this one, or something third? Anisja49 (talk) 20:46, 19 September 2016 (UTC)

I would recommend writing up a new article. The current article is solely about the camp and the background section is merely to provide context. 23 editor (talk) 00:29, 21 September 2016 (UTC)
