Rachel Haramati is not a family relative, she is a TV producer. Hidro (talk) 10:05, 21 September 2012 (UTC)

Edit warring

I will withdraw from editing that article any further for the time being. I will make note of any changes I make on the talk pages in the future. However, I believe that the American Jews article should remain as is for now, because the information from that article is intact with the current version. 69.248.98.23 (talk) 14:08, 11 October 2012 (UTC)

Template:US airport data

Thanks for the parameterization with compatible defaults. I changed it up a bit, to allow different years for the two 2008s; please check and see if I did right. Dicklyon (talk) 06:01, 23 October 2012 (UTC)

That's it

I hereby declare an edit war on you. I'm not here to collaborate, I'm here to defeat your lousy opinions and uphold....THE TRUTH! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 192.135.209.8 (talk) 15:53, 3 December 2012 (UTC)

I don't have a clue who you are or what your problem is. Real people register for accounts and sign their posts. —[AlanM1(talk)]— 16:02, 3 December 2012 (UTC)

I'll admit, this made me laugh. It's probably just a troll.Evildoer187 (talk) 01:51, 21 December 2012 (UTC)

La Cerdanya

Hi AlanM1. Regarding your post on my talk page:

Hi. I reverted your change at Cerdanya because I was unable to verify it and it was un-cited. To the contrary, a search in Google Earth in the area yields organization names like "Golf Fontanals de Cerdanya" and "Ayuntamiento de Bellver de Cerdanya Centralita" (not "de la Cerdanya"). As far as popular usage, the Panoramio photos in the area mostly do not include the article either. IIR, French and French-influenced places use the article in some circumstances, but we don't include the information in the WP articles, as it's a grammatical issue, not really a part of the name when used in English. Might this be the situation here? —[AlanM1(talk)]— 22:44, 16 December 2012 (UTC)

Well, I live here in Catalonia, and I know that la Cerdanya is basically preceded by the feminine article. As to whether this should be kept on in English may be debatable (i.e. maybe you're right about it being a "grammar issue" and not an intrinsic part of the name), but it is used in Catalan. Let's see, here are a few links: http://www.cerdanya.org/; http://cat.lleida.com/comarca/index.html?comarca=12; http://www.cerdanya.ws/cerdanya.htm . The names of towns in la Cerdanya are called Bellver de Cerdanya, Fontanals de Cerdanya, true, but people always refer to "la Cerdanya" when speaking about the comarca. Anyway, you're probably rifght here for English, but I do think the "la" should at least be mentioned. Talk later. --Catgirl (talk) 23:49, 16 December 2012 (UTC)

Lleida.com was an interesting reference. It does, indeed, show "La Cerdanya" at the top of the page, but does not include the article on the pages of the other comarcas, like Solsonès and Garrigues, except in some places in the prose where one would expect it grammatically. However, each page does include the article in the name of the section "Consell Comarcal de ..." (even plural in the case of "les Garrigues"), so I don't know. I added back the mention (somewhat differently) and your sources. Without objection, I'll copy this discussion to the article talk page for reference. ¡Salut! —[AlanM1(talk)]— 16:15, 17 December 2012 (UTC)
As I was editing the article, I noticed this Comarques of Catalonia#The articles in naming Face-smile.svg —[AlanM1(talk)]— 16:21, 17 December 2012 (UTC)

Yes, that's an excellent list, with all the right articles! :) Glad you re-inserted the mention. --Catgirl (talk) 19:11, 17 December 2012 (UTC)
