Will you help me?[edit]

Hello, I'm a new wikipedian from Texas, and I've just translated the article on the Catholic Apostolic National Church of Brazil from the Portuguese page, using my knowledge of Spanish and a dictionary, and adding a single fact I knew.. It says on your page that you know Portuguese. Could you check over my translation and see if anything contradicts the Portuguese version? You can leave my a message on my talk page. And another thing: how did you learn all those languages!? Kennethmyers 16:47, 29 June 2006 (UTC

Portuguese/English Translation[edit]

Thank you very much for responding! Yes, the source of the English translation was the Portuguese article, but I also added a fact which I am sure of (which is that the bishop who was re-accepted into the Roman Catholic Church had a wife and children). Also, I ommited some information about the previous attempts to create a national Brazilian church, because I thought they were a little non sequitur, and probably belong in another article. I would be extremely thankful if you could point out where I was innacurate, and either change it yourself, or tell me to. Thank you! Kennethmyers 22:13, 4 July 2006 (UTC)

Thank You![edit]

Hi! Thank you so much for looking at the article. I used the word "National" in the title because that's how I had heard the name. It looks like someone has fixed that too, now. If I can ever help you with anything, please let me know! Kennethmyers 05:26, 12 July 2006 (UTC)

Gyrodynes[edit]

Hi, I'm OrangUtanUK who has done some stuff on the Gyrodynes page. I'm sorry, ut I was doing a chuky big change today and I think it's conflicted with some things you put in. I hope i've identified the main changes and merged them into my update, but perhaps it would be a good idea if you had a look and checked that you like my contribution.

best wishes; OrangUtanUK 17:22, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

WikiProject Disambiguation Talk Request[edit]

This is a form message being sent to all WikiProject Disambiguation participants. I recently left a proposed banner idea on the WikiProject Disambiguation talk page and I would appreciate any input you could provide. Before it can be approved or denied, I would prefer a lot of feedback from multiple participants in the project. So if you have the time please join in the discussion to help improve the WikiProject. Keep up the good work in link repair and thanks for your time. Nehrams2020 22:42, 9 October 2006 (UTC)

D with a stroke edit.[edit]

Nah, mate. I wasn't referring to your edit in that summary - your edit was good. I was talking about Ptcamn's revert, which undid a capitalization, and alphabetical orders, when they could have just re-added Bosnian instead of reverting.

Bellows[edit]

Heya, Beeblebrox! I just hammered on the Bellows page for a while - is this what you had in mind for cleanup? Cbdorsett 07:05, 13 December 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for reply. I have a little request: can you help out with the translation from Slovenian to English on Slovenian parliamentary election, 2004? The only thing remaining is "Nepovezanih poslancev" and "Nepovezani poslanec", which I'm guessing are the plural and singular of something like "unaligned candidates" or "independent deputies". Thanks. Cbdorsett 05:02, 8 September 2007 (UTC)
Thanks for helping out there. I cleaned up a little bit, and I changed "Deputy group" to "delegation," which is the correct English term for a group of members of an elected body, who are all in the same party. In the US Congress, there is a Democratic delegation, a Republican delegation, and so on. I don't know about British usage - it could be quite different. Cbdorsett 04:07, 10 September 2007 (UTC)

Translation of Interlingua[edit]

Hi Biblbroks,

Thanks for welcoming me! I’ve known several people from the Balkan region at various times. It’s an interesting region, and I think the Balkan languages are fun as well. I wonder if you could do me a favor. The Wiktionary has an article on Interlingua with several translations, but one Balkan language, Croatian, isn’t yet included. I gather that you speak this language natively. Could you add the Croatian word for Interlingua? That would be great! The article is located here. By the way, the English Wikipedia article on Interlingua is here.

Thank you, 66.68.174.245 (not my real name :)

Orphaned fair use image (Image:Zoran Radmilovic.jpg)[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Zoran Radmilovic.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable under fair use (see our fair use policy).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any fair use images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you.

General relativity[edit]

If you want to see the lead shortened, then it would behoove you to either make a suggestion or tell me why you think that it is too long. Just slamming a tag on it is unacceptable IMO, especially when the lead is as long as it is because the article was chided for its being too short in the past.

The standards call for the lead to be between one and four paragraphs long. It is. --EMS | Talk 14:56, 10 April 2007 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Nrm[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Nrm, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia per speedy deletion criterion A1.

Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not meet basic Wikipedia criteria may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as an appropriate article, and if you can indicate why the subject of this article is appropriate, you may contest the tagging. To do this, add {{hangon}} on the top of the article and leave a note on the article's talk page explaining your position. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would confirm its subject's notability under the guidelines.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the article (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the article's talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Milena Lukich for Afd[edit]

I wanted to let you know that now BlueAzure has been skipping boards and placing multiple tags on a group of articles, one of which you helped to edit. The Milena Lukich article is among that group affected and is now facing Afd. If you have anything to add, I think it is important to disallow a single editor from continuing this kind of harassment.

Disputed fair use rationale for Image:Zoran radmilovic.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Zoran radmilovic.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale you have provided for using this image under "fair use" may be invalid. Please read the instructions at Wikipedia:Non-free content carefully, then go to the image description page and clarify why you think the image qualifies for fair use. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it will be deleted within a couple of days according to our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot (talk) 03:11, 12 February 2008 (UTC)


Disputed fair use rationale for Image:Nick of time.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading Image:Nick of time.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this image under "fair use" may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the image description page and add or clarify the reason why the image qualifies for fair use. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a fair use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for images used under the fair use policy require both a copyright tag and a fair use rationale.

If it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it might be deleted by adminstrator within a few days in accordance with our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot (talk) 16:09, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

Unspecified source for Image:Female_race_defiler2.svg[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg

Thanks for uploading Image:Female_race_defiler2.svg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, then you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, then their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Fair use, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 19:48, 23 March 2008 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Nv8200p talk 19:48, 23 March 2008 (UTC)

Copy-and-paste page moves[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Hello, Biblbroks. Concerning your contribution, International relations regarding Kosovo, a page move cannot be done by simply copying and pasting the contents of a page into a new location, as such a process does not transfer the page's edit history and therefore violates the GNU Free Documentation License (GFDL). As a violation of the page move process, International relations regarding Kosovo needs to be temporarily deleted under the speedy deletion criteria so that the page you intended to move may be properly moved in a way that will preserve its edit history. International relations regarding Kosovo has been tagged for deletion, and may have been deleted by the time you see this message. If not, please refrain from editing either the page you intended to move or International relations regarding Kosovo until the latter has been deleted according to Wikipedia's speedy criterion G6 (non-controversial housekeeping).

If you did not intend to make a page move, then please insert the {{hangon}} tag right below the {{db-copypaste}} tag in International relations regarding Kosovo and state your intentions on Talk:International relations regarding Kosovo. An administrator will look at your reasoning before deciding what to do. Thank you for your contributions.  Blanchardb -MeMyEarsMyMouth- timed 00:30, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

Disruptive behaviour[edit]

Biblbroks, I have placed a note on the Administrators' Noticeboard because of your disruptive behaviour. I know you are acting in good faith, but your recent actions have led me to this. Bazonka (talk) 07:54, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

I too believe that you are acting in good faith, but controversial edits such as moving or redirecting a page require a majority consensus. Your proposal was rejected by an overwhelming majority. There was a recent discussion about renaming the article and it led to renaming the article "International recognition of Kosovo". Here is the discussion, which had a consensus to rename the article. Also once/ if you have a consensus, you have to perform the rename via WP:RM. Please take this into consideration. Regards Ijanderson (talk) 14:41, 21 March 2009 (UTC)
You could argue that, but a lot of people will revert your edits without a consensus and say WP:DONTBEADICK Ijanderson (talk) 16:28, 21 March 2009 (UTC)
Why are you not claiming that this article has a POV title: International recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia? Ijanderson (talk) 17:14, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

The "Recognition" debate[edit]

Biblbroks, I have brought this discussion to your talk page because it is taking up waaay too much space on the Talk:International recognition of Kosovo page. And I apologise for spelling your name incorrectly before.
Let me explain the meaning of "flogging a dead horse". You completely misunderstood it. The "horse" refers to your argument which you are "flogging" (whipping) by trying to continue it. In other words, you are working very hard to make something work, but it is a waste of time because it is "dead" - it will never, ever work.
Now for answering some of your questions:

  1. "Who can be authoritative enough to connect the context and the meaning in every given case?" I don't understand what you mean. Why do you need authority for this? There is no authority amongst Wikipedia editors - things are done by consensus. And the consensus (with the exception of you) is that the title adequately covers the context of the article.
  2. "If it is about recognition of independence, why couldn't it be also about recognition of dependence?" I suppose that a country that doesn't recognise Kosovo as an independent state, by default "recognises" it as a province of Serbia. But this isn't really how it works diplomatically. Diplomatically, countries recognise other countries, not bits of countries. For example, all countries "recognise" that California is part of the USA, but no countries have an embassy to California because they don't diplomatically recognise California - their embassy (and official recognition) is with the USA. So the "recognition" in the title of this article obviously refers to recognition as an independent state, not as part of a larger state.
  3. "There are many ways of recognitions. With how many should this article deal with?" My statement "...entities recognise in a variety of ways..." was a response to your argument that recognition is a process. I was pointing out that there is not just one process for recognition, but many. I do not understand why the "process" element of recongition is at all relevant.
  4. It could be considered POV that the article's title assumes that we mean recognition of Kosovo as independent, not recognition as a Serbian province. I think there may a valid case for renaming the article to "International recognition of the Republic of Kosovo" to remove this ambiguity. Yes, I said that there may be some ambiguity in the title - but not in the word "recognition"! The potential ambiguity is in the meaning of "Kosovo" - do we here refer to the state or to the province? But as I have said in point 2 above, this change is not entirely necessary because it should be clear that we are referring to Kosovo as an independent state. Hence my comment about "pedantic semantics". Semantics are, as you say, important. But extreme pedantry is unnecessary - it could turn a useful article into something unreadable.

Biblbroks, please can you repond to this post here, on your talk page. That way the whole discussion will be easier to read. Bazonka (talk) 10:13, 25 July 2009 (UTC)

I will indulge you and answer on this page. A bit, though, because my opinion is that the debate should continue on the talk page for the matters of continuity, consistency and especially transparency. Therefore, I will transfer a part from it there, too. And apology accepted, but with a note of you being careful in the future - too much has had me disturbed (as personal attacks) in your words. Not to mention the hostility of some other contributors. The term hostility was used here instead of the terms personal attacks - as they do in England with euphemisms, don't they. Sincerely I'm not not taking you very neutral at the moment. Especially not objective. Maybe not even sincere.
As for the explanation of the phrase: there's no need for you to do that. I got your point. The very first time. Unfortunately you haven't got mine. I hope you get it now: don't take the role of some kind of authority whether consensus exists or could exist. Neither do describe my actions. I don't yours. And if I may be a bit sarcastic with you not to mind that too much and explain my figure of speech (if you haven't got it yet): a person is much more humanely AND/OR reasonably "metaphored" with a horse, than an issue could be personified with anything else, not even a horse.
The other issues I will answer on the talk page. All the best, --Biblbroks's talk 15:31, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

Disambiguation pages with links to disambiguation pages.[edit]

Please do not remove links from these pages that have not been fully repaired, as you did with Norwood. The page still has a direct link to the disambiguation page, Norwood Park, which means that it still shows up as a page needing repair to disambiguators. Intentional disambig links must be piped through a "Foo (disambiguation)" redirect, to remove the link from the reports of those needing repairs. Cheers! bd2412 T 20:31, 2 May 2010 (UTC)

Yes, that is perfect. That way, when a disambiguator generates a list of pages needing repair, Northport will not show up on the list. Cheers again! bd2412 T 17:24, 3 May 2010 (UTC)

Your edit to the "vandalised" template[edit]

Hi, just thought I'd mention that I saw you recent edit to this template, and I would suggest you take a look at Help:Magic_words#Conditional_expressions for the correct syntax of the #ifeq parser function: it was a good effort, but you didn't use the syntax correctly. I need to rush offline now, but I'll give you some help with the syntax later if you want it. Regards, GiftigerWunsch [TALK] 19:22, 27 May 2010 (UTC)

Sorry about that, I rushed that message a bit. The correct syntax for the #ifeq parser function is {{#ifeq:x|y|result1|result2}}. If x is equal to y, the result is result1; otherwise, it's result2. You tried to add an extra pair of conditions I believe, but since the result is either x equals y or x is not equal to y, that doesn't work. Take a look at the syntax for "#switch" at Help:Magic_words#Conditional_expressions, this seems to be what you were trying to do. Hope that helps; happy editing.

Your edit to the "Srbosjek"[edit]

Well, as you've seen, my youtube reference is genuine contribution from German TV. Agricultural tool called "Sheaf knife" in English or "Gerber Messer" in German. While this tool might have been used for killing people, it definitively ISN'T "specially designed" for killing humans as first sentence says. Big effort is being done by certain Serbian extremist circles to increase number of victims (as if, for example, 70-100.000 really killed in Jasenovac concentration camp isn't hedious enough), mostly in order to justify crimes done by Serbian paramilitaries in 1990's.

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 05:16, 20 June 2010 (UTC)

Meša Selimović[edit]

You are right. There is no point to put "Serbo-Croatian Cyrillic" if that's just a redirect. But, I don't really know about your idea to redirect "Serbian Cyrillic alphabet" to "Vuk's Cyrillic alphabet". At least, You can try with a move request. Vanjagenije (talk) 19:13, 4 August 2010 (UTC)

I've got this message on my talk page: Vanjagenije (talk) 09:17, 5 August 2010 (UTC)

Sorry for butting in (accidentally had Vanjagenije's talkpage on my watchlist): it is not true that "General guideline, as you may know, is that links shouldn't point to redirects but to their respective articles." See WP:NOTBROKEN. While I'm here, as for that particular edit by Vanja's, I don't have strong opinion either way, but "Serbo-Croatian" phrasing can be perceived more neutral in this particular situation, I don't see particular reason why it shouldn't be used. The title of Gaj's Latin alphabet article is sort of rotten compromise in order not to ascribe any (supra-)national label to the alphabet, and does not conform to WP:COMMONNAME.

/* "Central South Slavic diasystem/area" and/versus/or "Western South Slavic Section/group/dialects */[edit]

As I understand it, CSS was meant to replace SC. It's not central in a cladistic or even geographical sense, but just a means of avoiding the offending phrase "SC". I think there were theoretical claims to justify this, but they haven't been accepted. And yes, there has been some discussion on this, esp. on the SC talk page.

Country data Republic of Kosovo[edit]

Regardless of the discussion at Template talk:Country data Kosovo, please stop making Template:Country data Republic of Kosovo a copy, and keep it as a redirect as originally implemented.

There is no need to turn the redirect into a full template, since it already works as expected. Thanks — Andrwsc (talk · contribs) 00:29, 8 March 2011 (UTC)

The reason why I was trying to change it was discussed at the aforementioned talk page, so I think it can't be simply regarded without this discussion. I understand that the clarification (of the reasons for my actions) could be not quite fit to the task, and I will try give a better explanation - there, at that talk page. To put it shortly: I saw the current situation with titles and topics of articles as different than before, therefore I opined that the original implementation of the redirects required a change to reflect these new topics/titles.

I changed it to "Serbian Cyrilic", because it's more precise (there are letters that don't exist in all Cyrilic alphabets).

P.S. У Просветиној енц. пише и да је 42-43. био у усташком логору, али нисам хтео то да додајем пошто се не поклапа са информацијом која је тренутно у чланку. --Supercooleskimo (talk) 18:45, 4 April 2011 (UTC)

The Kosovo article is *already* under a one revert per week restriction, which you have broken. My hope was that you would apologize for violating the restriction. In addition, it would help if you would promise to stop pushing a nationalist cause on this article, to stop tweaking the interwiki links, and to wait for consensus before making any changes. EdJohnston (talk) 03:03, 27 April 2011 (UTC)
  • I know it is. And i knew that quite some time before i was violating the rule. And i think you understand i did. As for your hope or expectation of me to apologize... well, i think that it/they are legitimate and understandable. And i think others would agree that they/it are/is. But i'm not sure it is completely justifiable. Anyway, if you think i should apologize, i will. No matter to whom. Or where. I will. Help me in deciding where and i will apologize. As for the promise, ok, you think it would help. But again, where would it be appropriate to put such a promise? If you have an idea share it, please. If it were still needed, i will make and put a promise like that. Best regards, --biblbroks (talk) 06:39, 27 April 2011 (UTC)

Banned from Kosovo-related articles per WP:AE decision[edit]

Hello Biblbroks. Please see the closure of a complaint at WP:Arbitration enforcement about your editing of Kosovo-related articles. Under the terms of WP:ARBKOS#Modified, you are banned for three months from Kosovo and all closely-related articles, including their talk pages and any interwiki links. This topic ban includes anything about the constitutional status of Kosovo and its relationship to Serbia. This ban can be enforced by blocks, but it expires on 30 July 2011. Let me know if you have any questions.


The Arbitration Committee has permitted administrators to impose, at their own discretion, sanctions on any editor working on pages broadly related to the Balkans if the editor repeatedly or seriously fails to adhere to the purpose of Wikipedia, any expected standards of behavior, or any normal editorial process. If you engage in further inappropriate behavior in this area, you may be placed under sanctions including blocks, a revert limitation or an article ban. The committee's full decision can be read at Wikipedia:Requests for arbitration/Macedonia#Final decision. EdJohnston (talk) 03:35, 30 April 2011 (UTC)

List of Serbs[edit]

Hi, adding a name of someone/anyone that has not got a wikipedia article without a supporting citation is worse that useless. If they are Serbian and notable then a citation explaining who they are and that they are Serbian is not much to ask - as for not moving them to the talkpage - I have tried without any success at all to get the IP24 to discuss and they keep adding such additions unendingly - so now the list is quite tidy I am just deleting the new ones now, regards. I have though perhaps the account does not speak English, would you try and communicate with them? Regards. Off2riorob (talk) 09:30, 9 May 2011 (UTC)

LGBT Serbia map situation[edit]

First off, Wikipedia articles must be accurate. Whether you support Kosovar independence or support Serbia's claim as Kosovo being it's territory, the current situation is that Kosovo is physically and politically distinct. Second, the file with Kosovo as part of Serbia is up for deletion, so it won't be here much longer anyways. Fry1989 eh? 20:11, 4 September 2011 (UTC)

It's not just a pic. First, it's an inaccurate map. Second, it's up for deletion. Third, it's only purpose is to inaccuratly pretend that Kosovo is still part of Serbia, which the reality is that it is not. If you care about Wikipedian accuracy, you will understand why it can not be used. Fry1989 eh? 20:19, 4 September 2011 (UTC)

You have performed four reverts in the space of 24 hours on LGBT rights in Serbia and Belgrade anti-gay riot. You should undo your last revert, per WP:3RR. DrKiernan (talk) 20:26, 4 September 2011 (UTC)

You have been blocked from editing for a period of 31 hours for your disruption caused by edit warring by violation of the three-revert rule. During a dispute, you should first try to discuss controversial changes and seek consensus. If that proves unsuccessful you are encouraged to seek dispute resolution, and in some cases it may be appropriate to request page protection. If you would like to be unblocked, you may appeal this block by adding the text {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}} below this notice, but you should read the guide to appealing blocks first. A fluffernutter is a sandwich! (talk) 20:59, 4 September 2011 (UTC)
Let me also add that your behavior on User talk:Fry1989 after he was blocked was unacceptable - you took advantage of the fact that he was blocked before you to taunt him on his own talk page. I don't care who was right or wrong in this dispute, but if the two of you start back up when your blocks expire, I will not hesitate to start re-upping the blocks. Hash it out on the article's talk page, or a noticeboard, or on your own talk pages if you must, but blatant edit warring like you were carrying out is simply not ok, period. A fluffernutter is a sandwich! (talk) 21:08, 4 September 2011 (UTC)

Edit war[edit]

I suggest you stop moving the edit war you are involved in to new language versions all the time. Discuss things on one language version (why not here on enwp?) and then move on to other language versions. GameOn (talk) 08:32, 6 September 2011 (UTC)

Kosovo and control[edit]

I noticed your edits on the Kosovo article. "Control" is this very peculiar word, but really control distills down to your ability to kill and kidnap with impunity ("arrest" and "imprison" in legal vernacular). That power primarily rests with the Kosovo Police at the moment as far as I can tell. It appears to be an EU institution under the auspicies of EULEX. I will try and de-Kosovarize that article, as it seems quite clear to me who runs the country and the police legally: the UN and the EU, not the Republic of Kosovo. That includes the police. A BBC article from 2008 accredits the creation of the police to the EU, not the Republic of Kosovo.

This is important because really the rest comes down to de facto recognition of the populace of civil institutions, and how those civil institutions are controlled and by whom. From what I could tell last I checked, Northern Kosovo recognized Serbian civil institutions on a widespread basis (they even outright hold elections there in violation of UN/EU military/police laws/regulations/edicts), which is why they are referred to as controlling the area.

It is so convoluted, and the Republic of Kosovo out and out claiming authority over stuff, and the EU quite obviously de facto letting them in a partisan manner, makes things very hard to discern. I guess they let the Republic of Kosovo people hold elections, but not Serbia, which is still recognized by the occupying power (the UN) as the sovereign. What's your take on the situation? Int21h (talk) 20:04, 21 December 2011 (UTC)

Article: "Republic of Kosovo". Subject: areas of control references disagreement[edit]

  • Reference No6: "Earlier Thursday, the Kosovo parliament backed Prime Minister Hashim Thaci's measures aimed at asserting the government's authority over the north and passed a resolution ordering the government to exercise its authority over the whole country, in line with the constitution." Therefore stating that Pristina is administrating Kosovo apart from the North. "Kosovo Serbs have had political and financial support from Belgrade and have often resorted to violence whenever the pressure on them to submit to authority has increased." Stating that Belgrade is trying to administrate Northern Kosovo and block Pristina from administrating Northern Kosovo.
  • Reference No7: "11 pct of the territory is not under Pristina's control" which is in reference to the North per the rest of the article, which talks about Pristina attempting to take control of the north.
  • Reference No8: "Serbian Ministry for Kosovo State Secretary Oliver Ivanović says that the current government had politically “lost a little bit of control“ in northern Kosovo." therefore stating that Belgrade has control of the north but has 'lost a little bit of control'.

Anyway I have proved to you what the references have stated regarding who controls where/ who's authority is respected where. Anyway you stated that it could be rewritten. If you believe it should be rewritten I will help you rewrite a new neutral way of explaining the authority situation. I am always open to compromise as long as the outcome is status neutral. However until then the status quo should remain. Regards IJA (talk) 23:56, 21 December 2011 (UTC)

Have you read the first article on today's B92? Minister: We will not leave northern Kosovo "Serbia’s Minister for Kosovo Goran Bogdanović has said that Serbia will not abolish its institutions in northern Kosovo... He told daily Večernje novosti that a request to withdraw from the institutions in northern Kosovo was unacceptable for the Serbian government. Requests for Serbia to withdraw from the institutions in the north of the province, that are not parallel but the only ones, are unacceptable for the government". He has stated that the institutions governing the North are apart of the Republic of Serbia. What more proof do you want? IJA (talk) 09:23, 22 December 2011 (UTC)

Also I've said to you, how do you think it should reworded? And what is POV about it? It just states who administrates where. Also we use status quo until a consensus can be reached to change something, this is a fundamental part of wikipedia policy. Regards IJA (talk) 09:37, 22 December 2011 (UTC)
So basically you're trying to deny that the RoK has control in Kosovo? Even though UNMIK only exists on paper (staffing levels were cut by 70% in Aug 2008 and there has been further cutting to staff levels since as well as the transfer of power to the Kosovo Assembly) and EULEX is a policing/ judicial mission which is set to expire in June 2012. I get it, you're opposed to the RoK but they do administrate the majority of Kosovo (even if you don't agree that they should) and they're much more of a government than a lot of third world countries. This is as bad as the time you tried to claim that countries don't recognise Kosovo, they just acknowledge Kosovo instead. I would love for you to produce a source stating that RoK does not control and administrate Kosovo (not incl the North) IJA (talk) 10:32, 22 December 2011 (UTC)
And no Belgrade doesn't directly control Northern Kosovo as it is considered local government. And that happens all over Serbia. IJA (talk) 10:35, 22 December 2011 (UTC)
Int21h is stating something very different to you. You're stating that RoS and RoK don't not control Kosovo but UNMIK and EULEX do, not true. That is false. We can't write false information on an encyclopaedia. I have produced sources, but just simply claiming they're not true means nothing as I have quoted where it states who controls what. Simply saying they're wrong bears no weight, how is it wrong? Please provide me with a source stating that RoK doesn't administrate or control Kosovo. IJA (talk) 15:04, 22 December 2011 (UTC)
Let me quote you from this morning: "if anyone is in control, UNMIK and EULEX are." proof You're the liar. IJA (talk) 15:40, 22 December 2011 (UTC)

POV-tag Bosnian language[edit]

Dear Biblbroks,

thank you for noticing the faulty POV-tag posted by me to the Bosnian language page. The title is of course perfectly correct. The issue, as throughly presented in the discussion, is the attempted classification of Bosnian as a subunit of "Serbo-Croatian"; a defunct and today invalid language term with highly controversial undertones. I would like to ask you which POV-tag would be appropriate for this matter? MarcRey (talk) 11:52, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

In that case I urge you to pay the talk page a visit. Attempts are currently made, and succeeded with over the last few months, in completely reviving "Serbo-Croatian" as a classification standard on Wikipedia. This is nothing but original research with extremely controversial undertones. I am however confident that such plans will not be successful in the long run. If it has taken you months to poison these articles, so am I prepared to spend months on sanitary actions. A simple search on goggle proves your misguidance, but this will most likely not be sufficient as I fear outside editors (non-Yugoslavian) with administrative privileges will have to be included into the discussion. I am currently collecting an extensive body of contemporary literature work (most recently from Duke university) which will have the administrators of Wikipedia realize that ex-Yugoslavian language articles will require protection in the future following the chauvinistic maneuvers concerning Serbo-Croatian. In clarification, given your uncomprehending answer I presume you to be part of the neo-Serbo-Croatian movement on Wikipedia. Maybe you could help me answer the following rumor: Serb editors on Wikipedia are on a pay check from the government (or individual municipalities) in Serbia to protect "the interests of the Serbian nation"? Would explain a great deal. MarcRey (talk) 18:59, 15 January 2012 (UTC)
How the heck do you guys find the time to sit in front of Wikipedia 24/7 in that case? Personally, I have a work, which is certainly well-paid, but prevents me from doing editing on Wikipedia during the hours I have to put bread on my table. Grateful for answer. MarcRey (talk) 19:09, 16 January 2012 (UTC)
My answer is that I do not know, but you should? Please refrain from taunting the Srebrenica genocide as you did on the administrator's page.MarcRey (talk) 21:33, 16 January 2012 (UTC)

Please don't bother with boiler-plate "welcome" messages.[edit]

Just because someone isn't logged in when they make minor edits (or major ones, for that matter) doesn't mean they're new to Wikipedia, or that they're not already registered. It only means they're not logged in. Those messages get annoying. 74.65.210.76 (talk) 03:40, 22 January 2012 (UTC)

Hi. When you recently edited Osman Đikić, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Bosnian (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

POV?[edit]

Can you please explain more about this? Why do you think it's POV. Well, historically, it's a fact. HOS was founded way back in 1991 (year before Bosnia become an independent state) and HVO was organized and officialy established way before Amry of Bosnia and Hezregovina. It's not POV, but fact. And also I don't see the reason why the neutrality of this secion comes to question because Croatian units were first to organize themselves agains the agression. --Wustenfuchs 20:37, 16 April 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link fixing one-day contest[edit]

I have decided to put on a mini-contest within the November 2013 monthly disambiguation contest, on Saturday, November 23 (UTC). I will personally give a $20 Amazon.com gift card to the disambiguator who fixes the most links on that server-day (see the project page for details on scoring points). Since we are not geared up to do an automated count for that day, at 00:00, 23 November 2013 (UTC) (which is 7:00 PM on November 22, EST), I'll take a screenshot of the project page leaderboard. I will presume that anyone who is not already listed on the leaderboard has precisely nine edits. At 01:00, 24 November 2013 (UTC) (8:00 PM on November 23, EST), I'll take a screenshot of the leaderboard at that time (the extra hour is to give the board time to update), and I will determine from that who our winner is. I will credit links fixed by turning a WP:DABCONCEPT page into an article, but you'll have to let me know me that you did so. Here's to a fun contest. Note that according to the Daily Disambig, we currently have under 256,000 disambiguation links to be fixed. If everyone in the disambiguation link fixers category were to fix 500 links, we would have them all done - so aim high! Cheers! bd2412 T 02:01, 18 November 2013 (UTC)
