Metrification[edit]

Hiya, I was wondering if you could tell me how you made the maps on the metrication page.. I think they're great and I'd like to make something similar for world literacy rates for the literacy page.. Thanks, TastyCakes 04:59, 2 November 2005 (UTC)

I didn't made that picture. It was made by User:Seabhcan, I just changed the colours. However, you can take that map and change it, with MSPaint or something. bogdan | Talk 15:35, 2 November 2005 (UTC)
Ah OK, great. Sorry, should have read the file history onthe picture more closely.. Thanks TastyCakes 16:33, 2 November 2005 (UTC)

Clash of Policies?[edit]

In considering moving Moldovan language to Moldovan (linguistics), I have one major worry: does the self-identifying policy apply to the Moldovan government's position that Moldovan is a "language" ? Even though the vast majority of linguists agree that Moldovan is simply Romanian which has been renamed by the Moldovan government (under long Russian pressure, as is known) , we may have a problem, because the Moldovan government has declared that its official language is to be called "Moldovan" not "Romanian" (at least, at present). Alexander 007 07:55, 2 November 2005 (UTC)

At the last census only 1/3 of the Romanian Moldovans said they "Moldovan", while only 2/3 said they spoke "Romanian" and the self-identification is of the people not of the government. bogdan | Talk 09:06, 2 November 2005 (UTC)

Ah yes. Alexander 007 05:57, 10 December 2005 (UTC)

List of country names in various languages under attack !!![edit]

Dear Bogdan,

The List of country names in various languages, List of European regions with alternative names, List of European cities with alternative names, List of European rivers with alternative names, and others, have come under attack by a certain Mikka, who, having just stumbled into all these lists, having found them of little use to himself, and having repeatedly ridiculed them and their users, has then promptly filed a petition to delete the lists in question.

Please cast your vote to keep these valuable, informative, and indeed fascinating lists at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of country names in various languages.

Thanks! Pasquale 16:15, 2 November 2005 (UTC)

de Gaulle, cheese and the French[edit]

Apparently de Gaulle said "246". See the new footnote in Cheese.

Arvanites and Arvanitika[edit]

I need your sources about those articles. Thanks. +MATIA 11:51, 5 November 2005 (UTC)

see the link on the Bibliography section: Joseph, Brian D. "Comparative perspectives on the place of Arvanitika within Greece and the Greek environment", 1999. bogdan | Talk 12:20, 5 November 2005 (UTC)
Nice :) Any chance to create a diagram according to his statement that Arvanitika (that's the term BJ uses) do not derive from Tosk, but is a sister lang/dial/variety/don't-know-what-else of Tosk and Standard Albanian (Shqip)? And thanks for your answer. +MATIA 12:43, 5 November 2005 (UTC)
Tosk is, like Gheg, a group of dialects. When Albanians say Tosk, they mean their standardized version, Shqip and the same thing is valid for Gheg.
All the languages in the Tosk group (including Arbëreshë and Arvanitika) had followed a set of characteristic phonetical changes that diferentiates them from the dialects of Gheg group. The rhotacism, (l->r and n->r) is present in many more words in Tosk than in Gheg and also some transformations in some vowels (a->ë).
Here's an example of the evolution of a word borrowed from Latin in Albanian: (glandula, meaning gland)
Latin <glandula> |--> Old Tosk <gljëndër> --> Shqip      <gjëndër>
                 |                        --> Arvanitika <gljëndër>
                 |--> Gheg <ganër>
bogdan | Talk 18:20, 5 November 2005 (UTC)

You haven't answered me about Brian Joseph's classification for Arvanitika nor for the usage of the name Arvanitika instead of Arvanitic. Any thoughts? +MATIA 22:02, 7 November 2005 (UTC)


Very interesting your edit on Moldovan_language. I've made the transcript of the link. Anytime when you need support let me know on my talk page.  Bonaparte  talk & contribs
Dear friend, your edits on Moldovan_language are very strong and good. You have my full support. If Node continues to delete, we should make a report of vandalism. Just let me know. Bonaparte  talk & contribs
Dear friend, you've made a valuable edit on the Talk:Moldovan language! I like it very much. I was just to make myself that.  Bonaparte  talk & contribs

Albanian map[edit]

Hi Bogdan, about that map you added to Albanian language. Um, there is a mistake. It says that in Italy, Albanian is called Arbëríshte. That is wrong, that is what Arvanitika is called in Arvanitika. The Albanian of Italy is called Arbëreshë. Sorry! Rex(talk)Flag of Albania.svg 21:09, 7 November 2005 (UTC)

Also, you mixed Gheg and Tosk up. Gheg is in the north and Tosk is in the south. Again, sorry. Rex(talk)Flag of Albania.svg 21:11, 7 November 2005 (UTC)

Sorry for mixing them up. I have fixed it. bogdan | Talk 21:21, 7 November 2005 (UTC)

Don't worry about it, I just thought of all the trouble you'd been to. Rex(talk)Flag of Albania.svg 21:27, 7 November 2005 (UTC)

Lăutari[edit]

When you get a chance, could you take a look at Lupu's recent edits to Lăutari and his remarks on the talk page? This is a topic where, while not clueless, I am certainly not expert. I am suspicious of what seems to amount to a claim of "the Gypsies have no musical culture of their own", and his strident, argumentative tone on the talk page certainly does not increase my confidence that he actually knows his stuff. -- Jmabel | Talk 07:47, 10 November 2005 (UTC)

I'm sorry, but I don't think I can help you with this. In folk musical traditions it's very hard to say who originated each genre of music. I think this article might needs an expert that knows the details.
AFAIK, in the Romanian countries, the Gypsies gained their role as "lăutari" after serfdom became more stringent and they were still allowed to be itinerant musicians. I don't know whether they came with their music or they continued the music tradition of the Romanians. bogdan | Talk 18:59, 10 November 2005 (UTC)

Guild socialism[edit]

Hey, as far as I can tell Guild Socialism is a proper noun. Why'd you remove the caps? Ashibaka (tock) 01:01, 12 November 2005 (UTC)

To me it looks like it's not. It was a political movement, not an association, party, etc. bogdan | Talk 09:17, 12 November 2005 (UTC)
Political movements can be proper nouns. For example, Communism. Ashibaka (tock) 16:55, 12 November 2005 (UTC)
But see: Anarchist communism. bogdan | Talk 17:10, 12 November 2005 (UTC)
It seems to vary between sources, so I'll go with that precedent. Thanks. Ashibaka (tock) 21:06, 12 November 2005 (UTC)

numa numa[edit]

Hi,

You took out the google link from the numa numa entry. Note that this is not ordinary google, it is video.google.com, where people submit videos, therefore the search link for numa numa is essentially a collection of numa numa dances from all around the world. I am not strongly defending this issue, I am just trying to learn what exactly the rule is. Could you point that to me? Thanks so much.

E.

Nicolae Grigorescu[edit]

Nice article. Got any references? (If not, I'll try to seek some out.) -- Jmabel | Talk 00:56, 24 November 2005 (UTC)

I translated the Romanian article which had none. But I know a rather long biography (and rather annoying in style :-), made by Alexandru Vlahuţă in 1911: Pictorul Grigorescu (at wikisource) bogdan 20:55, 24 November 2005 (UTC)

Zizi Lambrino[edit]

How was Zizi Lambrino a "royal mistress"? She was Carol's legally married wife. Please reply at Talk:Zizi Lambrino. -- Jmabel | Talk 01:21, 27 November 2005 (UTC)

First it was a "mistress". Then ended as a married wife. He quit the throne as another King of England (George?) for a woman. The parents didn't agree with this so he had to let Prince Mihai.  Bonaparte  talk & contribs
Sorry that was Elena Lupescu.

A new article Controversy_Moldovan_language[edit]

Bogdan we can make a new article in which this "controversy" to be much better explained. Suppose I'll write an article entitled Controversy_Moldovan_language and to add there all the history and stuff, and here just a link to redirect to romanian. I found my idea brilliant. (It was suggested by a friend of mine) :). Do you agree?  Bonaparte  talk & contribs

Graiurile limbii române[edit]

Salut Bogdan. N-am avut pînă acum ocazia să vorbim. Aş vrea în primul rînd să te felicit pentru poziţia fermă şi justificată ştiinţific în ce priveşte limba română şi alte chestiuni conexe. Te susţin şi îmi pare rău că nu am o pregătire aprofundată în domeniu pentru ca susţinerea mea să fie cu adevărat eficientă.

Ma alatur si eu :) --Bonaparte 21:11, 28 November 2005 (UTC)
Oricum vreau sa te laud si eu: ai o mintiuca brici :) --Bonaparte 21:12, 28 November 2005 (UTC)

Îţi scriu ca să te întreb despre harta cu graiurile limbii române. Bănuiesc că ai o sursă pe care te-ai bazat în crearea hărţii, iar în cazul ăsta sînt puţin surprins de felul cum arată. Anume găsesc ciudată gaura din mijloc, pe care ai explicat-o într-un mod insuficient. În zona respectivă chiar nu trăiesc români deloc? Presupun că harta nu reprezintă doar zonele unde româna se vorbeşte majoritar, ci zonele unde se vorbeşte, punct.

În Székelyföld (Ţinutul Secuiesc), care include părţi din judeţele Harghita, Covasna şi Mureş, majoritatea satelor sunt exclusiv secuieşti. Oraşele sunt 'doar' cam 80-90% secuieşti, restul fiind români care au venit (din Moldova, Oltenia, etc) mai ales odată cu industrializarea din anii '70-80. bogdan 09:51, 28 November 2005 (UTC)

Încă o chestiune ar fi lipsa de diferenţiere între graiurile din nord, mai ales între cel moldovenesc şi cele vorbite în Ardeal, deşi sînt marcate toate prin etichete. De asemenea la sud ar merita să vedem o separare între graiul oltenesc şi cel muntenesc, deşi diferenţa este mai puţin evidentă.

OK, o să fac o versiune revizuită. :-) bogdan 09:51, 28 November 2005 (UTC)

Nu-mi place să te critic, mai ales că nu sînt specialist. Consideră că tot ce-am spus este pe jumătate o curiozitate personală. Toate cele bune şi succes în luptă!... --AdiJapan 05:50, 28 November 2005 (UTC)

Eu spun sa nu mai tot impartiti si sa lasati asa deocamdata, plus gaura aceea ar fi bine sa cam dispara. Vorba lui Adi si acolo sunt romani, mai putini dar oricum sunt. Plus ungurii de acolo vorbesc romaneste sau asa ar trebui sa fie. Trebuie sa rezulte ceva unitar fara gauri, fara ezitari si sa nu lase loc la nici o interpretare. Te rog frumos Bogdan.--Bonaparte 21:09, 28 November 2005 (UTC)

Take care[edit]

I almost did the same thing a couple of times before. I may do so soon as well. Wikipedia now is much less enjoyable than it was back in say, March 0f 2005. Now there are all these leeches in Wikipedia, draining the fun out. By the way, I think you did more for the Romania-related articles than any other Wikipedia contributor. Alexander 007 11:36, 29 November 2005 (UTC)

Yeah, I agree with what was written above. You're a huge loss for the Romanian-related articles on Wiki. --Anittas 11:44, 29 November 2005 (UTC)

Hello Bogdan. Perhaps we had some disagreements in the past, but I hope you'll take a wikibreak and return. I wonder if a Fembot would change your mind :) +MATIA 12:17, 29 November 2005 (UTC)

Hello Bogdan. Everybody has been a little tensed the last couple of weeks, and problems and harsh language have spilled from several disputed articles to areas that were nice to edit before. However, nice weather comes after storm. Please, remain. Your contributions are extraordinary. User:Dpotop

Please reconsider[edit]

All I can say, really is please reconsider your departure. You've been one of the best contributors to Wikipedia I've crossed paths with, and you will be sorely missed.

You've said that Wikipedia "less fun" than it was. I hope this turns out just to mean that you need a break. If nothing else, I'm sure it would be very informative if you would let us know what you think is headed the wrong direction. I would expect that your views on the matter would be very informative. -- Jmabel | Talk 20:05, 29 November 2005 (UTC)

Yes, please do reconsider. I agree that sometimes Wikipedia can be too much. Please take a break and come back. :) Oleg Alexandrov (talk) 02:18, 30 November 2005 (UTC)

Image size bug fixed[edit]

The image size bug you complained about in IRC yesterday is now fixed. There were two failure modes, one where the wrong width thumb was generated, and one where we expected the wrong height. The second case is completely resolved, but in the first case the thumbnails will need to be regerated. I may build a tool to clean our thumbnail cache to solve that, but until then images will be wrong until they are uploaded again. New images or old images at new sizes will be right. --Gmaxwell 00:13, 5 December 2005 (UTC)

Thank you. bogdan 09:36, 10 December 2005 (UTC)

Problems?[edit]

I really want to get to the bottom of this. Why are you trying very hard to annoy me on IRC? It really isn't hard as I suffer from enough annoyance by my stalkers and many others. You also opposed/reverted/objected anything I mentioned on IRC so far. I really am not pleased with this behavior. --Cool CatTalk|@ 22:25, 8 December 2005 (UTC)

Bogdan, accepta. Ai 5 voturi deja :) -- Bonaparte talk 10:39, 11 December 2005 (UTC)
Uh... I don't know if he wants to be a Wiki admin, but one thing in common between me and BG, I guess, is that we're both rather anarchistic. In fact, Bogdan once called himself an anarchist. If he wanted to be an admin, he probably would be one by now. And if I wanted to be an admin, I would also be one by now. On the other hand, I chose to do in Wiki what I felt like doing. My point: not everyone wants to be a Wikipedia "administrator", nor is it as fun to some as it may be to others. Nor is it very important or prestigious. In fact, I often consider adminship iirelevant and I often put so-called "admins" in check. Alexander 007 11:02, 11 December 2005 (UTC)
I know what you mean, but on the other hand this may come as a payment for all his huge contributions. And they are inestimable. Bonaparte talk 11:06, 11 December 2005 (UTC)
It's up to him. I'm just guessing from what I know of him. Alexander 007 11:08, 11 December 2005 (UTC)

It's true that we need him. We need a good model like he is. This may come as a natural achievment. Bonaparte talk 11:10, 11 December 2005 (UTC)

Need him? To do things for you guys? To constantly answer requests? Doesn't that seem to suggest his statement, "Wikipedia is no longer fun to edit?". Alexander 007 11:13, 11 December 2005 (UTC) (Note: after the timestamp, Bonaparte added a new sentence "We need a good model like he is" to his comment; I note this because otherwise my response seems weird)

This is part of the role. You take it and assume it or leave it. (to take and assume to defend the truth --also to requests -- not the admin status) Bonaparte talk 11:20, 11 December 2005 (UTC)

I know. I don't complain about my present Wiki status, and occasionally I like to help out however I can, and I don't discourage requests on my Talk Page (though I don't guarantee answering them). But if I or Bogdan become admins, we would have to "take it and assume it". I decided to leave it and remain an anarchist. Alexander 007 11:25, 11 December 2005 (UTC)
It is no coincidence that I started User:Alexander 007/Collected Vandalism, Vol. I on the last day of voting for my RfA. A statement of my anarchic solidarity, and freedom over conformity. If they don't like it, let them request that page for deletion. Alexander 007 11:41, 11 December 2005 (UTC)
Yeah, an anarchist who is against certain nicknames. LOL. Anyway, what's with this Bogdan dude? He's ignoring us. Anarchist in all honour, but why rude? Bogdan, what's up, dude? --Anittas 14:20, 12 December 2005 (UTC)
Certain nicknames cause disruption. That's why you can't call yourself User:Homo Killer in WP. Being anarchistic for me means I do not like undue authority being exercised, basically (does not mean I prefer chaos; order over chaos anyday). Having a User change a disruptive User Name is not undue authority being exercised. Blocking a person for violating 3RR however, even if they reverting to a correct version, is something I oppose. Though it's true I'm more of a dictator than an anarchist, just to clarify. Alexander 007 15:09, 12 December 2005 (UTC)
BS. There was nothing wrong with that nickname. --Anittas 15:48, 12 December 2005 (UTC)
BS. There is something wrong with that nickname. It causes vandalism. Alexander 007 15:56, 12 December 2005 (UTC)
Your opinion on her nick may be styled as BS, to use your phrase. The fact is her nick is spurring vandalism. Your opinion is your opinion. A fact is a fact. Alexander 007 15:55, 12 December 2005 (UTC)

He is a Jew, is he not? --Anittas 15:48, 12 December 2005 (UTC)
That's exactly like you say "You are a Romaniaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan". Or you are an "Americaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan". It's a fact isn't it? There is not a shame to be German or Chinese for example. But Node intentionally said that Moldavians are not Moldovans. Which is false of course. Actually Node said in a perverse meaning.-- Bonaparte talk 15:22, 12 December 2005 (UTC)
Node has no idea what he's talking about half of the time, though he thinks he does. What he said was hateful and part of his extremist POV, a POV which is cut off from reality as much as possible. Alexander 007 15:26, 12 December 2005 (UTC)
Exactly my point. He uses this Wikipedia as a tool for his extremist political POV (e.g. Moldovans are not Moldavians).-- Bonaparte talk 15:29, 12 December 2005 (UTC)
As an American, if I were to say "You are a Jew" to my neighbor, that merely says that he is an American whose religion is Judaism. I realize that the term "Jew" can refer to a Jewish ethnicity, but that is not the dominant usage in the US. Barbra Streisand is a prominent Jewish entertainer, but she is seen as being an American of the Jewish religion, not that she can only be an American or a Jew. Your usage would deny the German ethnicity of Marcel Reich-Ranicki in place of a solely "Jewish" identity, when in actually he is regarded as a "Jewish German" or a "German Jew" (in the US at least). Olessi 15:58, 12 December 2005 (UTC)

Accession of Romania to the European Union[edit]

Salut Bogdan. Maybe you'll be so kind to help me to extend this article Accession of Romania to the European Union. The model can be Accession of Turkey to the European Union.

What a fucking coincidence[edit]

At 14:46 UTC you made an edit to Fuck. At 14:47, someone added to the AlexTG article that AlexTG went to India "so he can fuck his wife". I don't know. Just thought I'd note it down for posterity. An IP check of either of us will show it was a clean coincidence. Alexander 007 15:10, 14 December 2005 (UTC)

I just noticed another element to the coincidence: India is an element in both instances; in Fuck, you removed a long passage about Dravidian, etc. Alexander 007 16:05, 14 December 2005 (UTC)

Well yeah...you're right :)
It's all about the magic numbers..
One (1) was the "coincidence", word "fuck", "India"
Two (2) was the number of articles on which was found the coincidence, Fuck , AlexTG
Three (3) was the number that explain the hour (around 3 PM)
Four (4) people had seen this
Five (5) will be the total number of edits to this paragraph

- Bonaparte -Let's be winners!

If you want to get into numerology, don't forget about number 6: 14:46=1+4+4+6=15=1+5=6.
And lucky number 7: 14:47=1+4+4+7+=16. 16=1+6=7. Alexander 007 16:48, 14 December 2005 (UTC)

I will cover all this in my Collected Vandalism , Vol. I. Alexander 007 16:09, 14 December 2005 (UTC)

Nice. Since we are so united nobody can't stop us. Very ambitious. No time to spend with us Bonaparte talk 22:35, 14 December 2005 (UTC)

I wasn't looking for a response to this one. Just couldn't resist discussing a fucking coincidence. As long as Bogdan responds on vital issues (see "Clash of policies" above), I'll occasionally make use of this talk page, but Bonaparte, many people (including me) are not looking to chat all day (I'm not saying that you are looking to chat all day). This is an encyclopedia project. But occasionally, things come up at a tangent. Alexander 007 21:42, 18 December 2005 (UTC)

I was referring to Bogdan not to you Alexandru. As long as Bogdan responds on vital issues and not only we'll support his effort. Bogdan is such ambitious, I bet that's why he doesn't have time to spend it. Bonaparte talk 21:53, 18 December 2005 (UTC)

Duh, my comment shows that I realized you were referring to him. "I wasn't looking for a response to this one" means "I didn't need Bogdan to respond to my fucking coincidence", I just wanted to note it. Your comment was apparently addressing how Bogdan didn't respond to the fucking coincidence discussion, and other discussions on this talk page. Alexander 007 21:56, 18 December 2005 (UTC)

Hmm...who knows what his issue is. Me, I don't ignore most posts on my talk page, since that is rude (but I don't care because I'm not looking to have a chat with BG other than the very occasional topic that comes up) . This issue was brought up by Anittas in Bogdan's RfA. Alexander 007 22:05, 18 December 2005 (UTC)

Thanks. You see, it would be worse to have an empty talk page, and besides, 90% of the time it's fun coming up with a response to someone. It tests you. It doesn't take up too much time either. Alexander 007 22:10, 18 December 2005 (UTC)

List of Latin place names in the Balkans[edit]

While we could really use some help, not following the format is decidedly not helpful. That's English Name (native language). That is, the diacritical version goes in the parenthesis. But thanks for the added information, I'll try to sort it. William Allen Simpson 22:02, 14 December 2005 (UTC)

Actually, when there is no widely used English name without diacriticals (like in the case of Quebec, instead of Québec)), the article name should use diacriticals, at least that's the policy. bogdan 22:11, 14 December 2005 (UTC)
  1. Please point me at this policy.
  2. There are no English names with diacriticals. None. Zip. Zilch. Don't care about "widely used" (a subjective test), as most of the names that show up from Romania won't ever be widely used. But they won't show up in an English language newpaper with diacriticals, and this is an encyclopedia, not a showcase for internationalism.
  3. Like I mentioned above, we really need the help, we don't have enough cross-language folks in your area. I thank you for your interest.

Bucovina[edit]

Hi Bogdan,

Is it true that there is a separate grai for Bucovina? I know that they have lots of unique words like "a se firasui" instead of "a se ciosmali", "caracandili" instead of "drac", "creitî" instead of "misarcî"... but also somebody told me that Bucovina speech is part of Moldovan, and I do know that Bucovine sounds at least to me more like Moldovan than Muntenian.

But really is the variety in Bucovina a separate grai?--Node 03:56, 15 December 2005 (UTC)

It's a part of the Moldavian accent, you weirdo! Or are you soon going to start a Bucovina Wiki, too? You weirdo! Weirdo! --Anittas 09:13, 15 December 2005 (UTC)

I never read anywhere of "Bucovinean" being a separate grai.
You could find subdivisions of the grai (but which don't have a name), which are spoken in each "ţinut" (region) or "ţară" (land). See a map at: http://www.eliznik.org.uk/RomaniaEthno/ethno-map.htm The differences between the language spoken in two neighbouring regions is usually very small, perhaphs a dozen or two words. bogdan 10:01, 15 December 2005 (UTC)

Injection of text that does not directly link to topic falls into vandalism[edit]

The injection of text that does not directly related to the subject, is not in the benefit the Wikipedia. Especially sensitive issues like a genocide. It does not add a value to the issue or even generate a positive image to the reader. That history of the fact mentioned in the text has already covered in the ottoman page, where it belongs as mentioned in the text. Also, opposition of the Turkish State to the issue is covered under International relations of Turkey. I 'm hoping that you can be more sensitive to the issue and revert your changes, for the improvement of the Wikipedia as a correct and relevant information source.--tommiks 23:31, 18 December 2005 (UTC)

Nu ai ceva referinta bibliografica pentru An important company in the republic is Sheriff, which is owned by president Smirnov's eldest son. Sheriff is in a virtual control of the economy, from the FC Sheriff Tiraspol football team and its newly constructed stadium to a chain of stores throughout Transnistria.? -- Bonaparte talk 15:03, 23 December 2005 (UTC)

Cu nişte căutări google am găsit [http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/programmes/crossing_continents/3586815.stm câte ceva de la BBC:
The stadium complex and football team belongs to a firm called Sheriff, which owns other businesses including a chain of petrol stations, supermarkets and a TV channel.
Sheriff clearly enjoys advantages from the state, such as tax breaks and the right to conduct business in hard currency. Other businesses have to use Transdniestrian roubles.
Organised crime experts in the UK suspect that Sheriff really belongs to the first family of the rogue republic, and claim the Smirnovs use it to launder money.
A recent report funded by the British Department for International Development says that "Transdniester is a smuggling company masquerading as a state".
So, maybe it's time to start an article about Sheriff (company) ? bogdan

Asa e. Te-am intrebat pentru ca Mikkalai a sters intentionat fraza cheie, in acest fel minimalizand influenta lui Smirnov in Transnistria. Compara fragmentul de mai sus (orginal) cu cel al lui mikka de mai jos:

Bogdan, if none of the Romanians will face him down on this, he can basically claim to be speaking for the lot of you, and nothing I can say will make any difference. I think that what he is saying is appalling, but it is clear that he could not care less what I think. -- Jmabel | Talk 01:55, 25 December 2005 (UTC)

Hoţ[edit]

Am citit undeva (am uitat unde) ca noi am luat cuvantul "hoţ" de la visi-goti. Daca asta este adevarat, ar insemna ca noi am fost nord de Dunare, pentru ca acolo erau si gotii. Dexonline spune ca acest cuvant este etnic. Deci, nu este slavonic, neo-grec, etc. Tu stii ceva despre originea acestui cuvant? --Anittas 19:16, 26 December 2005 (UTC)

Nu este foarte clar de unde vine hoţ, dar eu zic că o schimbare g → h e puţin probabilă în contextul limbii române, mai probabilă ar fi de exemplu în limba ucrainiană, care transformă "g"-urile în "h"-uri (precum Bogdan → Bohdan, Mogila → Mohyla, etc).
Cât despre vizigoţi, ei au ajuns până în Balcani, vezi Battle of Naissus (la Niş, în Serbia), deci nu ar fi vreun argument prea solid. bogdan 19:43, 26 December 2005 (UTC)

Ah, okay. Deci afara de asta, nu prea sunt teorii bune despre cuvantul hot. Stiam ca gotii au patruns sud de Dunare, dar parca nu au stat acolo prea mult. Ai fi bine daca am putea identifica cuvinte luate de la popoarele migratoare nord de Dunare, care erau acolo inainte de 900. --Anittas 20:17, 26 December 2005 (UTC)

Jwales move[edit]

Sure: It's a trick to remove material from the history without having to individually check all the reversions you want to restore. You delete the page, then undelete only the revisions you want to keep deleted. You then move those to a different place (i.e., Jimmy Wales/delete) then delete them there. You can then go back to the revisions you want to keep (which will still be deleted at the original target (i.e., Jimmy Wales) and undelete them without having to click 1700 checkboxes. Unfortunately, when you do a move like that, it takes the talk page with, and I forgot to move it back in the heat of the vandal fight. I should have known better, because the same thing happened to fvw, but it was Jimbo himself who came to ask what was going on! -- Essjay · Talk 23:51, 28 December 2005 (UTC)

Correct name for Romanian teams[edit]

I don't think that calling Rapid FC Rapid Bucureşti is a good idea. The most important visitors, from my POV, are the supporters coming from various European countries. They call Bucharest as they read it on UEFA.com, or Eurosport, or globscore.com, or livescore.com - that's Bucharest, not Bucureşti. The FC particle used to be AFC (there are a handful of links still for AFC) and UFC, and it is changing each 3-4 years, when Copos wants to erase club's debt. I would suggest calling the page Rapid Bucharest' instead of FC Rapid Bucureşti. If you think it's OK, I'll fix all the links, but I needed a formal approval and support. What's your POV?--Luci_Sandor (talkcontribsFlag of Europe.svg Flag of New Jersey.svg 05:10, 30 December 2005 (UTC)

UEFA seems to call it Rapid Bucuresti. See here. --Anittas 05:19, 30 December 2005 (UTC)

Hungarian town names--Luci_Sandor (talkcontribsFlag of Europe.svg Flag of New Jersey.svg 13:56, 1 January 2006 (UTC)[edit]

I have seen a movement towards deleting the Hungarian names of the Moldavian town. While I don't care/know about what happens with Piatra Neamt etc., I'd say that early Catholicism is very important in the history of the towns from Siret Valley. If you remove Catholicism, be it Hungarian, German, or Italian, from Roman history, it remains close to nothing.

The earliest Catholic diocese in Moldavia was not "Hungarian": it was the Cumans diocese, established in the 13th century. The Cumans lived across the Southern half of Moldavia, from Comăneşti to Galaţi, Vaslui, Covurlui (all names of Cuman origin).
Well, the common policy is that in the lead section are listed names of significant minorities of the town. If there is/was no such minority in recorded history, but that name is somehow important, it should be written in the history section. bogdan 16:47, 31 December 2005 (UTC)

Then it's the issue of the Hungarian speaking minority living on the Siret Valley. I hope nobody will say that the Hungarian name for Roman is irrelevant, as long as hundreds of Hungarians are living in a range of 10 km, like in the village of Secuieni. It is like pretending that my name is not Hungarian.

There are still thousands of Romanians living within in a range of 15 km of Belgrade. Go and add the Romanian name to that article and see if you can. :-) bogdan 16:47, 31 December 2005 (UTC)

On the other I hand, I would have to lookup, but I suppose there was / is some Hungarian minority even in Tirgu Neamt / Piatra Neamt, towns where you removed the Hungarian name.--Luci_Sandor (talkcontribsFlag of Europe.svg Flag of New Jersey.svg 14:38, 31 December 2005 (UTC)

I am not aware of such a minority, though I guess that at one point in the past (possibly during the Dark Age), there Hungarians in some of the cities: the names of Bacău and Suceava feel too much like borrowings from Hungarian, judging by the phonetical appearence. I'd better add this on the articles. bogdan 16:47, 31 December 2005 (UTC)
There are a handful of villages where some people still speak Hungarian. I had classmates, whose parents came from such villages and were able to speak Hungarian, I know some people who were children there and still speak Hungarian with their parents. The Catholic Church was really perverted during the Communism, as they (Church & Party) allowed only Romanian mess and used to send only non-Hungarian priests there. Hungarians had to learn Romanian for church and for school, and only countrymen from villages outside main roads still speak Hungarian.
I also got your point about Belgrade, but I hope Romanians and Hungarians are a bit more tolerant and less tensed than Serbs.--Luci_Sandor (talkcontribsFlag of Europe.svg Flag of New Jersey.svg 21:33, 31 December 2005 (UTC)
Drop it Lucica. Igen? Stay away from your pushing POV. Bonaparte talk 11:19, 1 January 2006 (UTC)
First of all, I don't speak Hungarian, my people lived for long around Tirgu Neamt, on the Eastern side of the mountains - no igen bashes, OK? Secondly, you should stop seeing malefic plots against Romania. It's not a POV when I say there are Hungarians on the Siret valley and it's not a POV when I say that the Communist (and the Legion) state did everything to change their minds. I remember how the priest who was supposed to teach us about the Catholic Faith had no idea what 'Greek-Catholics' (Eastern Catholics) are. Plus, it's not a POV that their very existence is hidden to the other citizens of Romania.
As of Cuman religious inheritance, it happens that it is highly believe able that the Baia Bishop was acting on this area of the Siret valley, but there are no writings about it acting in Roman. A small town with no current or recent importance (I had an edit war with the supporters of the county-hood), with proud citizens, I'm sure that if we would learn something about documents from Cumans, we will spread it on our monuments and on the Internet ASAP.--Luci_Sandor (talkcontribsFlag of Europe.svg Flag of New Jersey.svg 13:56, 1 January 2006 (UTC)

User:203.188.144.61[edit]

You blocked User:203.188.144.61 indefinitely as an open proxy. I am not familiar with the methods to determine if an IP adress is an open proxy, but would you also look at User:203.188.144.62, which participated in the same revert war and is likely the same user as User:203.188.144.61? I have blocked 203.188.144.62 for 24 hours for a 3RR (see Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/3RR#User:Serhio). Thanks, and happy editing -- Chris 73 | Talk 14:03, 1 January 2006 (UTC)

Well, it's quite easy: you google the IP and if you find it listed on "free open proxy" sites, then it's an open proxy. :-) bogdan 14:12, 1 January 2006 (UTC)
Cool, thanks for the info, and thanks for blocking the IP. -- Chris 73 | Talk 14:14, 1 January 2006 (UTC)
