Translations from Greek WP[edit]

Hello and thanks for your translations from the Greek WP! Be advised, however, that when you translate a page, you are required to add the {{Translated page}} template in the talk page, for reasons of copyright. You should also take some time and read the WP:MOS, as the English WP does things a little different to the Greek one, esp. with regards to the linking of dates. Likewise, when transliterating Greek names, βήτα is usually rendered into V, not B. Cheers, and keep it up! Constantine 10:13, 21 February 2016 (UTC)

A page you started (Theodosius II of Constantinople) has been reviewed![edit]

Thanks for creating Theodosius II of Constantinople, Antondimak!

Wikipedia editor NearEMPTiness just reviewed your page, and wrote this note for you:

Thanks for writing and uploading the article. The bibliography and notes are still in Greek language, which will not be understood by most English speaking readers. I propose to translate or delete these.

To reply, leave a comment on NearEMPTiness's talk page.

Borean languages[edit]

Hello, Antondimak. I looked carefully at the graph that you recently added to Borean languages, and I noted that "Demonic" is listed under "Egyptian". I assume that is a typo for "Demotic (Egyptian)"? FreeKnowledgeCreator (talk) 04:18, 31 March 2016 (UTC)

Do you think you could fix the error? FreeKnowledgeCreator (talk) 20:53, 31 March 2016 (UTC)
I don't really know how to edit images like that. I'll try though. Antondimak (talk) 11:31, 1 April 2016 (UTC)

Petros Hatzitasis revert[edit]

You are probably right; I am stumbling around trying to improve these but I am stumbling around. I am working on the list of X2 articles at Wikipedia:Administrators'_noticeboard/CXT/Pages_to_review, where I found it. From the rest of your user page it looks like you have other articles on that list; I know that there is a lot of stuff there about Greek patriarchs and Macedonian fighters. Now that I look, you are the author of Georgios Modis; I just removed kai from between two titles in Greek in that article. Mostly however my impression is that these articles are not bad work, not ideal perhaps but what is, and definitely better than nothing; but yes, I am clueless in the topic.

So please let me help you. First of all you are no doubt correct about the revert; that's fine. But you should know that anything that is still on the list on June 6 will be summarily deleted. If you want to keep these articles you should go through the list and use strike tags on the titles of the articles you want kept. I encourage you to do so as they look like good work to me that doesn't need all that much, but the work required for *me* to learn what I need to polish them is so high I have not done that myself (and there are a lot of other articles I am better able to take responsibility for).

So. Cross the articles off the list if you want to keep them. They are caught up in a discussion of the usefulness of machine translation and were identified as machine translation. I am in this discussion because I use machine translation (with other languages than Greek). Once you cross them off the best thing you can do to prevent other challenges on some other basis than "machine translation" is to add references where they are missing. In some cases also, having read a few, the context is unclear -- for example I found a navbar for a committee from the WW2 period and added it to all the bios whose names were on it, but I still don't really know what that committee was exactly, and likely the greek articles these bio were translated from don't make it clear because if you speak Greek you already know (?) That's my theory anyway; I have run into this in French Spanish and Portuguese, where I usually play.

Incidentally, a translation from another language, for complicated legal reasons,

  • should*

(some people will say must) have a translated template on the talk page:

</nowiki>

is the syntax, as I recall. This gives the article a provenance and gives you cover for some of the translated article's flaws from the point of view of the english wikipedia; no references or weak references for example. Affixing it means that you are attesting that the article is a representation of *this version* of the translated article, which may of course then diverge considerably from the state it was in when you translated it. Hope that helps and please feel free to ask me any questions that you may have, such as where to get the history version. Elinruby (talk) 23:44, 19 May 2017 (UTC)

How can I find my articles in there? Do I have to look at all 3602? Also how should I justify it? Do I just write that it isn't machine translation? Antondimak (talk) 10:49, 20 May 2017 (UTC)

@Antondimak: it's enough to say you don't think the translation is a problem. There will be an expectation that in what you strike will deal with any tags (like references) -- that is why I don't want to do them myself, plus I know nothing, nada, about the subject matter -- but I see you are continuing to work on these articles so yeah, get them off the list then continue doing what you were doing, working on the articles. Although feel please do feel free to do a couple of assessments while you are there if you want. I don't suppose you speak portuguese? or chinese or arabic? Feel free to ask any questions; I plan to be in wikipedia for several hours, I've been pretty absent for a few days Elinruby (talk) 02:05, 22 May 2017 (UTC) @Antondimak: you're doing it right. Just be ready to defend anything that is a translation of something that needed some work, or whatever. You might want to watch that page, in case. Thanks for getting those, that was a group I had identified as pretty good work about to get deleted. Elinruby (talk) 02:23, 22 May 2017 (UTC)

Can I interest you?[edit]

If you like. If you don't, that is also fine. I did however notice that you took off a painting and I do have a bunch of those. If you struck that article about a painting because you like the painting and want to improve the article, that's fantastic. It's a beautiful painting and I think that was enough to get me to work on the article as well. However if that is the case I have to warn you that I found some really strange translation so ask you to carefully check the facts of the article as you work on it. Peace out.

Anastasios Pehion[edit]

Hello, you may still be planning to do so, but can you please add sources to this article? It looks like its source was another Wiki - if so, please put this is the article, but other Wikipedias are specifically mentioned at WP:RELIABLESOURCES as not reliable. Thanks, Boleyn (talk) 18:54, 13 January 2018 (UTC)

I am indeed planning to add sources as I will be translating the rest of the article. Antondimak (talk) 21:39, 13 January 2018 (UTC)

Please note that the correct diacritic is keraia. --Omnipaedista (talk) 10:39, 31 January 2018 (UTC)

Hello, Antondimak. I wanted to let you know that I’m proposing an article that you started, Walter Puchner, for deletion because I don't think it meets our criteria for inclusion. If you don't want the article deleted:

  1. edit the page
  2. remove the text that looks like this: {{proposed deletion/dated...}}
