Sant'Efis[edit]

Hello Attilios, do you speak sardinian? Sorry, I'm not english mother language and have surely made many mistakes, but, actually, you cancelled entire sections because you don't understand the meaning of the specific vocabolary, such as in heraldry, or are not keen on some arguments, such as linguistics, and you dont'like sardinian language. I'm so sorry, I worked so much in this article, perhaps it was a little...magnified, but it was not a disaster as you wrote. I'd like help, but I think that censorship or blame is not in the spirit of wikipedia. Your comments are really inapposite. Cagliari is my town, I know it very well, and I tried to wrote something that could atract interest of anglo-saxon speaking people. You can rectify my prose, my style, reduce some excess information, ok, no problem: I would appreciate it very much, but surely you can't rectify my sardinian. Sant'Efis is Sant'Efis!! Unquestionably!

Personal style preferences[edit]

Please stop mass-editing articles about Roman gentes to change "at Rome" to "of Ancient Rome". "At Rome" is perfectly acceptable in English; indeed, "at" any place is normal usage and should not automatically be converted to "of" or "in" or anything else. That the topic is "ancient" Rome is generally to be understood from the context; but the phrasing in each article varies slightly, in part to avoid becoming overly formulaic; some say "at ancient Rome" and some don't; it's neither necessary nor desirable to make them all conform to the same phrasing.

I don't agree. Rome is a modern city. Ancient Rome is a civilization now disappeared. I doubt that all readers, especially those jumping into the article in some casual way, should "generally understand the context".

Also, please avoid removing images from articles such as "Roman naming conventions" on the grounds that they don't relate to the "argument". Aside from the fact that the article text is a discussion, and not an argument, these images were carefully chosen because they illustrated the culture being discussed, and because of the need to break up walls of text; you're unlikely to find many images of names being used by people, but you can easily find images of people belonging to the culture whose names are being discussed. In this case, an Etruscan fresco in a section discussing the interplay of Etruscan, Latin, and other Italic names in the development of the system; and a painting of a Roman child next to the discussion of names being bestowed on Roman children. They may not directly depict the names, but they're the next best thing, and necessary for a long article that would otherwise be all text. P Aculeius (talk) 13:00, 9 April 2017 (UTC)

My opinion remains that those images were added just for decoration. This style of illustrating articles is more proper for magazines than encyclopedias, I think. If the images describes a child who is spoken of inside the article, it's OK. Otherwise is just decoration, as you justified it "otherwise be all text". Where's the problem?. But again, this is my opinion. Thanks and good work --'''Attilios''' (talk) 18:05, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
Readers are highly unlikely to reach any articles about Roman gentes by accident, or from anywhere other than topics about "ancient" Rome; and when English speakers refer to "Romans" or "Roman" topics, I think it's almost universally assumed to refer to antiquity, unless something about the context clearly indicates otherwise. That said, many of the articles already use the phrase ancient Rome in the lead. However, it seems pedantic to insist that every article about Roman topics declare that they're ancient Roman topics. As for the question of illustrations, I think it's perfectly appropriate to include an illustration of a Roman child with a discussion of cultural practices relating to Roman children, or a distinctly Etruscan fresco in a discussion of Etruscan cultural practices. You may regard them as "just decoration", but ultimately that's what most illustrations are; very seldom is an illustration strictly necessary to the understanding of a topic. Precisely what is the benefit of removing the illustrations in question? Does removing them make the text more readable? Certainly not; if anything it makes them less readable. Is the conservation of space an issue where articles don't exist in printed form? No. If you think that articles about abstract concepts such as nomenclature shouldn't have illustrations, you're free to write them that way, but I think forcing other editors to conform to your preferences impoverishes Wikipedia as a whole.

Information icon Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you copied or moved text from Henry Kuttner into The Graveyard Rats. While you are welcome to re-use Wikipedia's content, here or elsewhere, Wikipedia's licensing does require that you provide attribution to the original contributor(s). When copying within Wikipedia, this is supplied at minimum in an edit summary at the page into which you've copied content, disclosing the copying and linking to the copied page, e.g., copied content from [[page name]]; see that page's history for attribution. It is good practice, especially if copying is extensive, to also place a properly formatted {{copied}} template on the talk pages of the source and destination. The attribution has been provided for this situation, but if you have copied material between pages before, even if it was a long time ago, please provide attribution for that duplication. You can read more about the procedure and the reasons at Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia. Thank you. If you are the sole author of the prose that was moved, attribution is not required. — Diannaa 🍁 (talk) 23:35, 14 June 2017 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:Roberto Bettega (footballer).jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Roberto Bettega (footballer).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. -- Marchjuly (talk) 04:43, 23 June 2017 (UTC)
