July 2016[edit]

Information icon Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. You appear to be repeatedly reverting or undoing other editors' contributions at Magic cube. Although this may seem necessary to protect your preferred version of a page, on Wikipedia this is known as "edit warring" and is usually seen as obstructing the normal editing process, as it often creates animosity between editors. Instead of reverting, please discuss the situation with the editor(s) involved and try to reach a consensus on the talk page.

If editors continue to revert to their preferred version they are likely to lose editing privileges. This isn't done to punish an editor, but to prevent the disruption caused by edit warring. In particular, editors should be aware of the three-revert rule, which says that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Edit warring on Wikipedia is not acceptable in any amount, and violating the three-revert rule is very likely to lead to a loss of editing privileges. Thank you. nyuszika7h (talk) 13:27, 16 July 2016 (UTC)

Besides, don't you love Hungarian products, like the Magic Cube, invented by a Hungarian? I just looked on your page and it said 'Ennek a szerkesztőnek magyar azanyanyelve' ('This user has a native understanding of Hungarian'). -Awesomemeeos (talk) 23:15, 16 July 2016 (UTC)

Nomination of Åsa Apelkvist for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Åsa Apelkvist is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Åsa Apelkvist until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article.

@Mathglot: Just delete it. I don't care. Not a big deal! — AWESOME meeos * ([ˈjæb.ə ət məɪ])) 23:44, 26 May 2017 (UTC)
Hi, Awesomemeeos: Thanks for your comments; that was just a courtesy notice to you above because you had edited the article, and I wanted to let you know. In any case, I'm not an admin, and couldn't delete it if I wanted to. If you feel like adding a comment to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Åsa Apelkvist, that might help. You're always free just to ignore these templated notifications. I sometimes make little edits on articles that I'd just as soon see deleted, so I get it. Happy editing!

Re:Tagalog Diacritics[edit]

We don't really use the diacritics in normal use that's why I don't fully know how it works. Tagalog diacritics in the past are heavily based on the Spanish system. So far, I only understand the acute accent (as in á) and the circumflex (as in â).

  • No diacritics are used if the stress is in the first syllable of the word. For example, the words tabo [ˈtɐbo̞] (dipper) and kulang [ˈkulɐŋ] (lacking) lack diacritics.
  • The acute accent is usually used when the stress is on the last syllable of the word. For example, isá [ʔiˈsä] (one) has this diacritic.
  • The circumflex accent is used when the stress is on the last syllable of the word and is followed by a glottal stop. For example, tuyô [tuˈjo̞ʔ] (dry) has this diacritic.

There's actually a website on this: Here

Pashto[edit]

  1. You can use the Tashdid in Pashto. But consonants in native words are not generally doubled.
  2. I can not answer this with certainity as this requires a more detailed study. But I can see some consistency e.g. in verbs the "ə" in "əl" ending is always stressed e.g. /wahəˈl/ - to hit, /katəˈl/ - to see
  3. Other than Waṇetsi, all Pashto dialects are very mutually intelligible as differences are most often phonological e.g. /ʂkwale/ and /xkwale/ - beautiful here the character ښ is used; another more complex example is the word sun: it can be either /lmar/,/nwar/ or /nmar/ the consonant cluster /lm/ is realised as /nw/ or /nm/ as in /lmasaɪ, nmasaɪ, nwasaɪ/ meaning grandson . Although a few of the vocab might change e.g. in some dialects they call clothes "Kâli" but in others it means jewellery. Adjutor101 (talk) 21:16, 5 July 2017 (UTC)

Re:Tagalog trouble[edit]

Sorry for the late reply. Both the [ä] and [ɐ] (sometimes also the [a]) are used to pronounce the Tagalog <a>. However, [ɐ] is almost exclusively used for fast, casual speech and when the <a> is unstressed. There are just some speakers that pronounce the letter A as an [ɐ] anywhere.

Disambiguation link notification for October 9[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Wiradjuri language, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Possum (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 11:05, 9 October 2017 (UTC)

Gunai languange and lingustics[edit]

Hello mate, Are you an expert-level linguist? I might need some help on the phonological inventory for the Gunai-Kurnai language of Victoria, Australia. I have a source on the pronunciation of the language, but I am not sure if it is fully accurate, or if my interpretation is incorrect. Which languages are you specialized in? Are you specialized in Australian Aboriginal linguistics? I'm an American by the way. If you can help me or offer me information, I would be grateful. Thanks! Fdomanico51997 (talk) 01:50, 14 October 2017 (UTC)

G'day. I'm not an expert-level linguist, yet I do have an amateur grasp to it. Yes, I can find some resources for the Gunai-Kurnai language's phonology. I specialise in all languages, including Australian Aboriginal languages. I sure can help. — AWESOME meeos * ([ˈjæb.ə ət məɪ])) 02:11, 14 October 2017 (UTC)
Thanks a lot! If you can provide me with some sources you know of; great! I'd love to know!Fdomanico51997 (talk) 02:20, 14 October 2017 (UTC)
@Fdomanico51997: Where did you get your original resource first? — AWESOME meeos * ([ˈjæb.ə ət məɪ])) 02:26, 14 October 2017 (UTC)
I purchased it online. It's "The language of the Kurnai tribes of Gippsland : with notes on grammar and pronunciation" compiled by P.D. Gardner. Here's the link to the language to show you what I have done: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gunai_language Fdomanico51997 (talk) 02:34, 14 October 2017 (UTC)
@Fdomanico51997: Thanks. I'll see to buying that book. In the meantime, I'm going to find other resources as well. Concerning about the existence of retroflex consonants in this language, it is a convention when transcribing Aboriginal languages to write letter sequences such as ⟨rn⟩ to express retroflex consonants (it's inspired by Swedish btw). Check if any of the spellings of the Gunai language use letter sequences such as that, also check if it's actually pronounced as /rn/ instead of /ɳ/. — AWESOME meeos * ([ˈjæb.ə ət məɪ])) 03:04, 14 October 2017 (UTC)
Yes, again I am not sure if the retroflex sound exists, however; one word "ngurdurna" meaning "where (plural)" and "kowern" which I assume means "echidna", these to words contain the /rn/ combination. I am not so sure if the sound is a "retroflex nasal" sound though. The source that I have does not note any information on that sound in the pronunciation section. Fdomanico51997 (talk) 03:18, 14 October 2017 (UTC)
If it doesn't mention anything about it, then there's no retroflex. Just because it's an Aboriginal language, it doesn't necessarily mean that it needs to have that consonant. — AWESOME meeos * ([ˈjæb.ə ət məɪ])) 04:54, 14 October 2017 (UTC)
Oh, thanks for the info, glad to be aware that not ALL Aboriginal languages have to have a retroflex sound. Thanks for your help! Fdomanico51997 (talk) 05:00, 14 October 2017 (UTC)

Re:有關宗教的問題[edit]

貴安,非常高興能認識閣下!即使極左翼時常與無神論相關,但我其實是有宗教信仰的極左翼人士。我覺得擁有宗教信仰能審度自己的行為,並且更能對大自然表示崇敬,和其他極左翼人士不太一樣。嚴格而言,我是臺灣民間信仰的信仰者,同時還信奉圓神教。當然,我更加信奉一切的科學,所以個人非常欣賞墨子,而他也有宗教信仰。

Hello, Nice to meet you! Even though the far-left politics are often related with atheism, I am a far-leftist person with religious beliefs actually. I think that having religious beliefs can reflect on my own behaviour, and I am more respectful of nature, it's not completely same as other far-leftists. Strictly speaking, I am a believer in Taiwanese folk religion (Jade Emperor, Xuanwu, Nezha, Guanyin, Baosheng Emperor, Mazu, Tudigong, Wenchang Wang, Guan Yu, etc.) and Madokami. Compared to this, I believe in science more, so I admire Micius very much, and he also has religious beliefs. -- TembinP IūstitiaSpēs~☆ 12:25, 9 December 2017 (UTC)

@Tenbeens: I hope you don't mind me replying here (and also in English). It's very interesting what you said here (and I laughed at Madokami, hahaha). I wonder how these deities aforementioned relate to your scientific thinking? Do you actually believe in them? And do you also use incense? (I suspect they also have scientific benefits).
Also, what are your thoughts on the western-based religion Christianity? I have opinions thoughts toward this religion, all 廢話 and historical fabrications etc. etc. — they call me AWESOMEmeeos ... [ˈɔɪ̯]! 11:44, 10 December 2017 (UTC)
@Awesomemeeos: My religious beliefs have nothing to do with scientific thinking, mainly affected by my father, grandparents, and in order to seek spiritual comfort and faith. I not only use incense, but also burn joss paper for my ancestor and these gods except for Madokami.
My mother is a devout Protestant and she seems to recognize only the words of the Bible. My sister also used to be, but she have disliked Christian religion later since several years ago, and thinks everything in Christian religion is hypocritical. I actually do not like Christianity, but I still respect my mother's beliefs. Speaking of this, I am very interested in Lilith, she is a clever, independent girl! -- TembinP IūstitiaSpēs~☆

Martin Garrix[edit]

Garrix is pronounced [ˈɡɛɹɪks], not [ˈɣɑrɪks] - see [1]. Because of that, we don't need it as it's just a dutchified version of the English name.

Please don't guess transcriptions. Mr KEBAB (talk) 02:11, 24 January 2018 (UTC)

Haha, a few seconds later he does say [ˈɣɑrɪks], noting that it's the Belgian pronunciation. My bad, because I turned it off as soon as he pronounced it the first time (my Dutch is too bad to understand the interview). But [ˈɣɑrɪks] is still regular, since loanwords with /ɡ/ are pronounced with [ɡ ~ k ~ χ] in the Netherlands and [ɣ] in Belgium. English /æ/ is [ɛ] in the Netherlands and [ɑ] in Belgium. Mr KEBAB (talk) 09:35, 24 January 2018 (UTC)

Theology of Pope Francis[edit]

Hi,

You recently added a POV template to the article Theology of Pope Francis without an explanation on the talk page. The Template's instructions state, "Please also explain on the article's talk page why you are adding this tag, identifying specific issues that are actionable within Wikipedia's content policies."

Would you please let us know what issues concern you so we can try to make appropriate changes. Lacking such guidance, we cannot address your concerns and the template may be removed. --SteveMcCluskey (talk) 02:59, 20 February 2018 (UTC)

Hey Stevo, the POV for that article is from an extremely biased Catholic point of view. It directly supports the Pope's theology in its very Christocentric wording, and initially I found it offensive, as if it tried to claim that's the reliable way to non-Christians like me (I did make some minor edits to the article as well). Furthermore, most of the references are from Christian or Catholic sources, and especially the Evangelii gaudium (EG) and Laudato si' (LS), which are both primary references from the Pope. I was about to put the reason on the talk page, but I forgot about it, so I apologise for forgetting. — they call me AWESOMEmeeos ... [ˈɔɪ̯]! 06:12, 20 February 2018 (UTC)
OK, I'll paste this discussion on the talk page for the record. Feel free to edit the article if you can find reliable sources discussing Pope Francis's theology. Off hand, I suspect there'll be few reliable non-Chrisitian sources on Francis's theology, but you're free to look for them. --SteveMcCluskey (talk) 16:34, 20 February 2018 (UTC)

Why go to editors' talks, not articles'?[edit]

Just curious, why do you post questions on specific editors' talks as opposed to on the talk page of the article about the topic? I know Wikipedia doesn't necessarily discourage going directly to editors' talk pages to ask questions, but especially when you don't know if the editor is going to be able to give you the answer right away, it creates an awkward situation where the editor may feel pressured to give you an answer. I think it's almost always better to ask the question on the talk of the relevant article and ping editors there than to go directly to their talks. That would also help other editors and readers who have the same question or are able to give you the answer. Not that I'm judging you, but that's my two cents. Nardog (talk) 11:35, 11 March 2018 (UTC)

@Nardog: G'day comrade. I do discuss on articles sometimes, but it's just that sometimes I like to get the user's two cents about certain topics (something that's more bound to the user and not the topic itself), or if I'm wanting a factual response, and I've got several questions, I find it more convenient and compact to answer in the user's talk page. But do have a look at Talk:Port Talbot English where I pinged Mr KEBAB there. Good night from Australia. — they call me AWESOMEmeeos ... [ˈɔɪ̯]! 11:44, 11 March 2018 (UTC)

Notice[edit]

Ofo and Mobike employ people to put their bikes on street in a massive way to compete for market shares in China. Those bikes on the picture are not near sidewalks, they block the whole sidewalk. People are encouraged to take buses instead of driving. "Avoid taking buses" is not good English. Ofo's nickname is not just from people who don't use Ofo often. Please stop distorting the original meaning and edit war. 螺钉 (talk) 13:44, 15 March 2018 (UTC)

@螺钉: Hello, I was not intending to 'distort' your edits, but the problem is that the grammar of yours is actually not the standard, and not what Wikipedia intends to have (see WP:MOS, you don't use the ampersand in this case). Avoid taking buses is actually okay, but maybe prevent could be a better verb. I can understand the economic benefit placing bikes on a street, but I don't prefer using a lot information such as that on image captions. And those photos don't completely block the whole footpath (as we say in Australia), you can see people walking on the footpath without any problem! — they call me AWESOMEmeeos ...

Oh, you mean User:AmazingJus/sandbox/scouse? I didn't mean to pressure you with that, I was only intending to put that after you added your part (the section with vowels). Besides, I was doing that to help you according to WP:GF — I do apologise if the wrong message came out. — oi yeah nah mate amazingJUSSO ... [ɡəˈdæɪ̯]! 05:17, 10 July 2018 (UTC)
User:Mr KEBAB/Scouse, back in May. Not your project.
No problem. I wouldn't get angry if you didn't post it without my permission. That's partially why I felt pressure not only to finish the project faster but to finish it at all (and before that, I could've chosen not to. I actually posted a rather half-assed version, but nevermind about that). It's not your place to do that and I'm glad you understand this. Kbb2 (ex. Mr KEBAB) (talk) 11:57, 11 July 2018 (UTC)

Pronunciation[edit]

The introduction of iQOS (pronounced, EYE-kose[50])… Can you fix the pronunciation in my draft? QuackGuru (talk) 14:12, 1 August 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for helping out. It looks like EYE-kohs is slanted. Is it supposed to be like that? QuackGuru (talk) 21:08, 1 August 2018 (UTC)
@QuackGuru: Yeah, that's how it's supposed to be, based from the {{Respell}} template. — oi yeah nah mate amazingJUSSO ... [ɡəˈdæɪ̯]! 21:12, 1 August 2018 (UTC)
We can keep it as is or try another template. The Everiepdia article used the IPAc-en template. QuackGuru (talk) 21:15, 1 August 2018 (UTC)
I believe we should keep it as it is. Some people may not know how to read IPA, so we should consider that. — oi yeah nah mate amazingJUSSO ... [ɡəˈdæɪ̯]! 21:16, 1 August 2018 (UTC)
Okay. The last option would be to redo the Respell template so that there is another choice for the wording not to be slanted. QuackGuru (talk) 21:20, 1 August 2018 (UTC)
No, it's supposed to be like that. This template's style is supposed to be oblique and has nothing to do with one's preference. — oi yeah nah mate amazingJUSSO ... [ɡəˈdæɪ̯]! 21:34, 1 August 2018 (UTC)
It was decided the text should be in italics when the template was created. I moved the ref to inside the parenthesis. QuackGuru (talk) 22:26, 1 August 2018 (UTC)
