Mellie Uyldert[edit]

Thank you so much for your contributions to this page. I can't seem to find links to any of her work. Are you aware of any places to buy or online concordances?

Thanks again :)

Request for comment![edit]

Since you've done some work on fire articles, would love you to comment on this discussion about what qualifies as a current wildfire if you have a moment. --Zackmann08 (Talk to me/What I been doing) 22:06, 1 October 2015 (UTC)

Transfermarkt[edit]

Since most of its content is user-generated, Transfermarkt is not a reliable source. Please stop citing the website in articles. Thank you. Sir Sputnik (talk) 23:58, 29 October 2015 (UTC)

Medieval Italian composers[edit]

Thank you very much for your edits today. They pleased me a lot. What I'm not sure about is if a composer worked in one country his whole life but was born in another, should he be listed under both categories? My sense is yes, but I know others disagree. -- Michael Scott Cuthbert (talk) 18:34, 6 November 2015 (UTC)

Section blanking of International titles[edit]

Afasmit You might be interested to read Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Novels, the discussion on International titles. You reverted one of the sections blanked by an editor who did this to all the articles on novels by Agatha Christie without discussion first. Now the topic is being discussed. I reverted one of these, too, but will not revert them all unless there is more support to do so, after the topic is aired properly. You reverted for the article The Secret of Chimneys with a concise statement of your view, https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=The_Secret_of_Chimneys&curid=542507&action=history . I am sure your views will improve the discussion. --Prairieplant (talk) 21:40, 2 December 2015 (UTC)

Dutch close-mid vowels before /r/[edit]

Hello. I see that you've been reinserting [ɪː, ʏː, ʊː] in Dutch IPA transcriptions. This creates a discrepancy between them and Help:IPA for Dutch (which they all link to), which is unacceptable. Each transcription that links to Help:IPA for Dutch must use the same transcription system that is shown there, otherwise we might as well don't have that IPA guide at all.

To see why it's not necessary to use the symbols [ɪː, ʏː, ʊː], see this discussion.

If you disagree with our current transcription system, please challenge it on Help:IPA for Dutch, but don't use another system until there's a consensus to change the guide. Peter238 (talk) 14:26, 27 February 2016 (UTC)

No idea which edit you're talking about. Is it one several thousand edits ago? If I did use any of these transcriptions for a Dutch word, that must have been by mistake as they look and sound non-native to me as a Dutchman. They also don't occur in the Dutch phonology tables that I doggedly follow. Perhaps your bot caught me undoing a large deletion (like a vandalism) that contained a transcription like this.

Maiorana wording[edit]

Hello User:Afasmit, can you take a look at the Maiorana surname article when you've got a minute, and, if necessary reword some of what's written, add/remove links and categories to make it sound more proper. It's a small job, but it would be a great help, thanks. --Emperorofthedaleks (talk) 04:41, 29 February 2016 (UTC)

It looks like you've eliminated a well-sourced well-written entry and replaced it with an unsourced and unlikely conjecture. I've restored the sensible version upon your request and added some more people. Afasmit (talk) 06:32, 29 February 2016 (UTC)
No, I meant could you reword the Anglo-Saxon version to fit Wikipedia with information based from this source ([1]). You can add related names and how it comes from Cheshire if you want. Maybe model it on Grant (name) article, which is very well written. --Emperorofthedaleks (talk) 11:50, 29 February 2016 (UTC)

Bruma[edit]

Haha thanks, my bad. Didn't look at the spelling. Martin sv 85 (talk) 06:52, 10 March 2016 (UTC)

Places of birth/death in lede sentence[edit]

Hi Afasmit, first of all thanks for working on the articles of academics, including some of the articles I created. Before you manage to add much more material I quickly wanted to advise you that according to the Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Biographies places of birth/death should not be added to the section within the lede brackets, but rather to the main body of text. See WP:BIRTHPLACE for more. Happy editing! Crispulop (talk) 17:26, 18 March 2016 (UTC)

Hi Crispulop, I think this style aspect is a classical example of a guideline rather than a rule. It has been discussed extensively and I agree with this interpretation by two editors. If there is an info box or a description of the birth or death in the main text, I leave those places out of the lede. If not, I put them in there. The person building this article can use the new information in any style they want, although stubs reading something like
Zbygniew Prlwytzkovski (1902-1989) was a Dutch scientist.
Prlwytzkovski was born in 1902 in Rommeldam. He was a fictional person after whom the fictional element Prlwytzium is named. He died in Rommeldam in 1989.
always strike me as unnecessarily clumsy. Afasmit (talk) 20:00, 21 March 2016 (UTC)

What do you think?[edit]

Hello User:Afasmit, I asked LlwelynII this question but they haven't answered, could you help? As a surname expert, do you think the name Maior has origins in [2] or [3]? Thanks. --Emperorofthedaleks (talk) 22:43, 31 March 2016 (UTC)

Anthony Colve[edit]

Hello!

My name is Artyom Anikin, and I am currently researching the life of Anthony Colve. I've recently written an article about his biography that will be published in the coming days in the academic journal, New York History, and it has a lot of information that is missing from your recent update of his page. I find it great that you have taken the time to update it as much as you have, and I hope that my article can help fill in the rest of the story. There are some interesting contradictions. You cite a source I did not see previously, the records of fort Sint Anna, which list him as living till 1695, while my research turned up a copy of his gravestone that listed his death as occurring in 1693. I'd like to talk to you about this if you are interested and I invite you to contact me. My article will hopefully be of great help to yours. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Artyomanikin (talkcontribs) 20:46, 9 May 2016 (UTC)

Information icon

Hello! I have recently started a new WikiProject and am trying to recruit new members. The project, WikiProject Wildfire, focuses on articles that relate to wildfires. There is a lot of work that needs to be done. From updating templates, to classifying and improving articles. Any level of commitment is welcome! If you care to just add some input on the founding of the new project, awesome. If you would like to take an active role in editing articles, that is awesome as well! Knowledge of wildfires is NOT a prerequisite for joining the project. In fact, it would be great to have some members of the project who are NOT fire-buffs. That way we make sure that articles aren't just written by and for people in the fire community. If this is something you have any interest in, I would love to have you join the project! Please feel free to join the discussion or leave me a message on my talk page. (Note that you are receiving this message from me because I saw you made multiple edits on a wildfire related page, specifically List of Washington wildfires. Not just spamming you at random.) Hope you have a great day! Zackmann08 (Talk to me/What I been doing) 22:02, 2 August 2016 (UTC)

Reverting AmE-biased phonemes in English phonology[edit]

Hi, I noticed you reverted an edit I made that corrected the phonemes of words with ⟨ong⟩ in them. The letter ⟨o⟩, in a closed syllable with the absence of a lengthening vowel, represents the /ɒ/ phoneme. It may make an [ɑː] sound or an [ɔː] sound in different contexts in AmE due to the lot-cloth split and the cot-caught merger, but it's not correct to say that it represents the phonemes /ɑː/ or /ɔː/. If you feel that that needs to be shown on that page, then it should be put in [] brackets to show that it's a narrow transcription. --Clorox (talk) 06:21, 26 August 2016 (UTC)
