I'm not important, but if you want to discuss me, feel free to do so! :D -- alexgieg 14:37, 4 December 2006 (UTC)

Traditionalism task force[edit]

Organizing resources so we don't end up both doing the same job seems like a fine idea. I'm better equipped to do biographical pages as opposed to ones on theology. Right now I'm planning to put up pages on Eliot Deutsch, Jean-Louis Michon, Brian Keeble, Jean-Pierre LaFouge, and Joseph Lumbard. At some point I want to expand the pages on William Stoddart and Heinrich Dumoulin. I should mention that I'm going out of the country in a few weeks and so won't be available much after that… Let me know what I can do to help! Temp07 (talk) 13:08, 15 May 2008 (UTC)

SmackBot[edit]

Not it shouldn't. Reverted. Will look at in detail later. Rich Farmbrough, 11:56 29 April 2008 (GMT).

Hmm... looks like it's an AWb thing... will get back to you. Rich Farmbrough, 11:58 29 April 2008 (GMT).

Potential superpowers[edit]

Olá Alexander Gieg! Há uma discussão ocorrendo em Talk:Potential superpowers#Removal of Brazil e gostaríamos da sua opinião. Obrigado pela atenção! Felipe C.S ( talk ) 22:00, 16 May 2008 (UTC)

Hi, could you please clarify your vote at the Talk:Potential great powers page on Mexico? If you are voting, please put your vote in the Support Removal or Oppose format that the other votes are in. This will help us tally the votes at the end. Thanks! Felipe C.S ( talk ) 17:52, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

Three revert warning[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Theory of everything. Note that the three-revert rule prohibits making more than three reversions on a single page within a 24 hour period. Additionally, users who perform a large number of reversions in content disputes may be blocked for edit warring, even if they do not technically violate the three-revert rule. If you continue, you may be blocked from editing. Please do not repeatedly revert edits, but use the talk page to work towards wording and content that gains a consensus among editors. If necessary, pursue dispute resolution. --McGeddon (talk) 18:14, 29 May 2008 (UTC)

Amazon links[edit]

Hi! A suggestion: instead of remedying Amazon links, wouldn't it be better to gather the ISBN-10 code from the Amazon page (or from the URL itself, if identifiable), then remove the link and add the ISBN magic word after the (now unlinked) text, between parenthesis? After all, this way people can have a fair choice of sources for the books they're interested enough in to actually click the link. Beside, those (like me) who do prefer Amazon, can always install the User:Lunchboxhero/monobook.js script, which is referred to whenever one opens the ISBN-linked page. -- alexgieg (talk) 01:27, 30 May 2008 (UTC)

Hi Alex, that's not a half bad idea. It also has the advantage of increasing the 'semanticness' of the markup. I'll have a look at implementing this when I get some free time. Cheers, CmdrObot (talk) 15:15, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

Shaykh Abdul Hadi[edit]

Hi Alexander,

Regarding my change on the Agueli page if whether or not Agueli was a Maliki. His Shaykh Ilaysh el Kabir was a Maliki, and his father Mohammad Ilaysh, was the head of the Maliki college at the Al Azhar, and also given the title "Restorer of the Maliki faith". Without him, there probably would not have been any Malikis in Egypt or the Western Arab countries. So it leaves little doubt as to whether Agueli was a Maliki or not. But, unfortunately, there is no quote.

All the Best and Kind regards,

Farid —Preceding unsigned comment added by Faridshahi79 (talkcontribs) 22:20, 17 June 2008 (UTC)

Lifetime[edit]

Why is it a problem? Either persondata does or does not use the default sort. In anycase it breaks nothing. the higher up the article deafultsort is the better. Why you may ask? Because sometime navboxen or infoboxen have embedded categories. Rich Farmbrough, 14:36 27 June 2008 (GMT).

SmackBot makes a number of changes that are available to all WP:AWB bots. The issue you raise is related to these, I have posted a bug report on the WP:AWB pages. Regards, Rich Farmbrough, 16:47 27 June 2008 (GMT).

Thanks[edit]

Thank you for improving and expanding the Wolgang Smith page I created last year. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Wolfgang84 (talkcontribs) 22:15, 31 August 2008 (UTC)

Regarding Userboxes[edit]

Notice: All of your Userboxes should be placed underWikipedia:Userboxes#Gallery and in the sub-article accordingly. Wikipedia categorization isn't reserved for your own personal use, please stop wasting Wikipedia resources. Thanks. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Ramu50 (talkcontribs)

Ramu50 is not a Wikipedia administrator, nor familiar with userbox policy in depth. There appears to be no problem here. Don't worry about it, Alexander. Have a good thanksgiving... Georgewilliamherbert (talk) 03:16, 26 November 2008 (UTC)
Yes, I know he's missing the point of the rules (or maybe just trolling, who knows?). But thanks for your support. Let's just ignore him. :-) -- alexgieg (talk) 10:44, 29 November 2008 (UTC)

Ding Dong![edit]

That's the door bell. There are several requests at Template talk:Inflation that are in want of your attention. Thanks! -- Uzma Gamal (talk) 10:18, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

Template:Formatprice[edit]

Hi there. Regarding {{Formatprice}}, I would be most grateful if you could change it so that thousands are displayed as e.g. £123,000 rather than "£123 thousand". Thankyou. -Ashley Pomeroy (talk) 22:46, 19 November 2010 (UTC)

Wikimedia Stories Project[edit]

Olá!

Meu nome é Victor e eu trabalho com a Fundação Wikimedia,organização sem fins lucrativos que apóia a Wikipédia. Estamosnarrando as histórias inspiradoras da comunidade Wikipedia em todo o mundo, incluindo os dos leitores, editores e doadores. As histórias são absolutamente essencial para qualquer organização sem fins lucrativos para persuadir as pessoas novas para apoiar a causa, e nós sabemos que a vasta rede de pessoas que usam a Wikipedia tem muito a compartilhar. É importante transmitir a incrível diversidade de pessoas que vieram a contar com a Wikipédia todos os dias.

Eu gostaria realmente a oportunidade de entrevistá-lo para contar a sua história, com a possibilidade de usá-lo em nossos materiais, em sites de nossa comunidade, ou como parte de arrecadação de fundos este ano para incentivar outras pessoas para apoiar a Wikipédia.

Eu vou estar em São Paulo a partir de 1 - 2 de Março de 2012, e eu vou estar presente:

http://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikip%C3%A9dia:Encontros/WikiSampa/WikiSampa_12

Eu estou esperando que você vai elaborar sobre a sua históriacomigo. Peço desculpas por qualquer mal-tradução nesta mensagem (talvez possa inspirar uma risada?) Estou usando oGoogle-traduzir no momento, mas o plano de ter tradutores disponíveis quando estamos no Brasil.

Por favor, deixe-me saber se você está inclinado a participar doProjeto Histórias Wikipedia!

Abraços,

Victor Grigas

Hello!

My name is Victor and I work with the Wikimedia Foundation, the non-profit organization that supports Wikipedia. We're chronicling the inspiring stories from the Wikipedia community around the world, including those from readers, editors, and donors. Stories are absolutely essential for any non-profit to persuade new people to support the cause, and we know the vast network of people who use Wikipedia have so much to share. It's important to convey the incredible diversity of people who've come to rely upon Wikipedia every day.

I'd really like the opportunity to interview you to tell your story, with the possibility of using it in our materials, on our community websites, or as part of this year’s fundraiser to encourage others to support Wikipedia.

I will be in São Paolo from the 1st - 2nd of March 2012, and I'll be attending:

http://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikip%C3%A9dia:Encontros/WikiSampa/WikiSampa_12

I'm hoping you will elaborate on your story with me. I apologize for any mis-translation in this message (perhaps it might inspire a laugh?) I am using Google-translate at the moment, but plan to have translators available when we are in Brazil.

Please let me know if you're inclined to take part in the Wikipedia Stories Project!

Thank you,

Victor Grigas
