Did you know?[edit]

Hi, you have come up with excellent suggestions for DYK on a regular basis. You may be interested in this. --Gurubrahma 06:40, 6 March 2006 (UTC)

Now you know...[edit]

This DYK medal goes to Carabinieri for his efforts in improving DYK entries, by identifying good suggestions from new pages patrol --Gurubrahma 10:04, 10 March 2006 (UTC)

. Keep up the good work!! --Gurubrahma 10:04, 10 March 2006 (UTC)

Germany portal selected article[edit]

I saw you edited the Selected article. Thank you for contributing to the Germany portal! Your help with the News and the NEw articles is most appreciated. As you might have noticed, we made some plans for the Germany portal at Portal talk:Germany and wanted to use only Featured-quality articles. There is a list at Portal:Germany/Selected articles and pictures of possible articles to select. It would be nice if you could suggest one of those at Portal talk:Germany so we have a new one ready for April. If you have any comments on the general format of the portal, I'd also like to hear them. I hope to be able to add some overview sections on geography, politics, history, and culture of Germany sometime soon. Kusma (討論) 20:32, 20 March 2006 (UTC)

If we lower the requirements on the articles, we could go to a weekly or biweekly schedule (also with auto-updates at the beginning of the new week), but right now we'd run out of sufficiently good articles too soon. Another possibility would be to add an extra "Selected biography" or something like that that could change with a different schedule and with different quality requirements. Or something else - quote of the week, or painting of the week, or recipe of the week - you can be creative :-). Right now, the only thing that really changes often is the Anniversaries section, which is currently done until April 14 (I think I'll manage to finish the entries for April before the end of March). Happy editing, Kusma (討論) 21:31, 20 March 2006 (UTC)

Social Issues in Germany[edit]

You addded an NPOV dispute to the Social Isssues in Germany article without explaining it on the talk page. I've removed it because as the template and rules for raising such disputes state -- you have to describe WHY and WHAT on the talk page. Reboot 21:22, 21 March 2006 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:Michael Kleiner.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Michael Kleiner.jpg. However, the image may soon be deleted unless we can determine the copyright holder and copyright status. The Wikimedia Foundation is very careful about the images included in Wikipedia because of copyright law (see Wikipedia's Copyright policy).

The copyright holder is usually the creator, the creator's employer, or the last person who was transferred ownership rights. Copyright information on images is signified using copyright templates. The three basic license types on Wikipedia are open content, public domain, and fair use. Find the appropriate template in Wikipedia:Image copyright tags and place it on the image page like this: {{TemplateName}}.

Please signify the copyright information on any other images you have uploaded or will upload. Remember that images without this important information can be deleted by an administrator. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me. Thank you. Shyam (T/C) 09:56, 22 March 2006 (UTC)

Carabinieri, If the image is not available at a particular source, which is mostly website, then the source is worthless. In such cases status of the image copyright can not be verified. Either search for people/organisation who holds the copyright status. Most of the time websites do not hold the copyright status. You can contact one of the administrator of the website to find out the author of the image. If it is not done so, I am afraid of deletion of the image. Regards, Shyam (T/C) 19:13, 22 March 2006 (UTC)
Anyhow, we need to have a particular source for verification. Fair use also demands for a source. I request you to contact website administrator and get copyright status. It will help to tag the image properly. Thank you, Shyam (T/C) 19:23, 22 March 2006 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:ShapourBakhtiar.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:ShapourBakhtiar.jpg. The image has been identified as not specifying the copyright status of the image, which is required by Wikipedia's policy on images. If you don't indicate the copyright status of the image on the image's description page, using an appropriate copyright tag, it may be deleted some time in the next seven days. If you have uploaded other images, please verify that you have provided copyright information for them as well.

Géza Hofi: a humorist?[edit]

Hi, you reverted my change [1], saying "humorist is much more specific". It may be specific, but according to the Wikipedia article humorist (redirected to "List of humorists"), it doesn't apply:

"A humorist is an author who specializes in short, humorous articles or essays."

Géza Hofi was not known as a writer of articles or essays, but he was known as a stand-up comedian who spoke live to the public. Adam78 16:31, 25 March 2006 (UTC)

Berlin meeting[edit]

Would you be so kind and not delete my subpage this time; I merely forgot to make it a user subpage and was on my way to moving it. Cheers. Lectonar 13:01, 29 March 2006 (UTC)

You're right of course, but to go as far as tagging it as vandalism...perhaps a query at my talk page would have been alright, but no harm done, so happy editing. Lectonar 13:08, 29 March 2006 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:Karl Binding.jpg[edit]

COTW Project[edit]

You voted for Demographics of Europe, this week's Collaboration of the week. Please come and help it become a featured-standard article. --Avala 20:43, 11 April 2006 (UTC)

Ami-Te-Rangi[edit]

Thanks for your effort in finding the Encyclopedia Mythica reference for that article. Unfortunately Encyclopedia Mythica is completely unreliable on Polynesian matters so I will edit the article to show that. It seems that they make things up basically Kahuroa 21:33, 13 April 2006 (UTC)

Ten German Bombers[edit]

Hi, thanks for adding the Jungle World reference. However, I, for one, am still not very convinced that Clarke connected the song with possible legal consequences. As far as I can tell, the Jungle World is the only place claiming that and, while I cannot point to any other reason to assume that, I am quite tempted to suggest that their portrayal is due to a mistranslation or some other kind of error. In particular, all English sources which I have so far read do not make the connection, which, if it was true, would be quite odd, since it would certainly be interesting for English fans. Are you sure that your reference is correct? —xyzzyn 22:36, 14 April 2006 (UTC)

Decimal separator[edit]

Perhaps I'm misunderstanding something, but the Decimal separator article is not covering Arabic and Persian languages and contains some wrong information (as I discussed in its discussion page) so it is an incomplete article, and possible a stub. (But you de-stubbed it.) Please guide. hujiTALK 19:30, 7 May 2006 (UTC)

License tagging for Image:Martin Bursik.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Martin Bursik.jpg. Wikipedia gets hundreds of images uploaded every day, and in order to verify that the images can be legally used on Wikipedia, the source and copyright status must be indicated. Images need to have an image tag applied to the image description page indicating the copyright status of the image. This uniform and easy-to-understand method of indicating the license status allows potential re-users of the images to know what they are allowed to do with the images.

For more information on using images, see the following pages:

This is an automated notice by OrphanBot. If you need help on selecting a tag to use, or in adding the tag to the image description, feel free to post a message at Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. 22:08, 9 May 2006 (UTC)

DYK[edit]

Updated DYK query Did you know? has been updated. A fact from the article Rüegsau, which you recently created, has been featured in that section on the Main Page. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the "Did you know?" talk page.

Adam Lux[edit]

Thanks for expanding this article! I like the Republic of Mainz and enjoy every bit of information about it that we have. Kusma (討論) 22:32, 24 May 2006 (UTC)

Your user page[edit]

If the crappy layout of this page bothers you, please do change it, I also don't like it.

I moved some stuff around, I hope I didn't wreck it for you, but I don't like messy user pages for some reason. MichaelBillington 01:44, 10 June 2006 (UTC)

I just got your reply on my talk page, when i noticed the timestamp on my post. Have I really been on wikipedia for nine hours straight? I read through my contributions. I have been editing for the last 14 hours (!!!). thanks for reminding me to get some sleep, it's 11:00pm at my house and for some reason I'm not tired (suspicious look for CIA agents hiding behind bookshelf for some reason). Goodnight (before I go insane typing things inside brackets)! MichaelBillington 12:56, 10 June 2006 (UTC)

Goldhagen[edit]

I saw your recent revert in Goldhagen article. I agree with you: it’s one of the most biased articles in Wikipedia. In fact, I’m the guy who tagged it. I’d like to see the article rewritten and the tag removed. But it’s a lot of work...! —Cesar Tort 15:55, 10 June 2006 (UTC)

Free Workers' Union[edit]

Hi Carabinieri, thanks for adding the FAU to the WikiProject list. It's nice to know when a new article comes along. Looks good! Cheers. --Bookandcoffee 17:36, 16 June 2006 (UTC)

Africa stubs[edit]

Carabinieri, I have seen you do praiseworthy work with African stubs. Don't you reckon every African country should have a stub? If you agree with me, I will proceed and request that all African countries have a stub. I do not have patience with the WikiProject Stub sorting procedure, and would rather nominate the batch and have it done with. Why ask me, you may ask. Well, it would be easier if I had some support (ie. consensus in wikijargon).--Ezeu 18:50, 16 June 2006 (UTC)

DYK[edit]

Updated DYK query On June 18, Did you know? was updated with a fact from the article Twistringen, which you created. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the "Did you know?" talk page.

--Cactus.man 09:24, 18 June 2006 (UTC)

cleanup[edit]

You put a cleanup tag on Ali Saleh Kahlah al-Marri back in February. But you didn't put a note on the talk page sayign what, exactly, you thought needed work. Would you mind taking a few minutes to do so now?

The way I see it, when people express their concern by putting a tag on an article, as you did, but then don't put a note on the talk page, explaining their concern, they leave the rest of us guessing when their concern is satisfied.

Tags like cleanup, when expanded, tell readers to look to the talk for a discussion about why the tag was applied. -- Geo Swan 22:55, 25 June 2006 (UTC)

Sudan Liberal Democrats & Party Leader[edit]

Hi Carabinieri,

Evidence of my claim that the party's actual name is the Liberal Democrats, is supplied with the page, I added an image, the photograph of the document that registered the party in the government (the english version, of which I have an arabic one aswell)on this document it states the party name and leader Image:NewPartyDocument.jpg. This document also supports my claim, along with other documents I can provide that the party's leader's real name is Al-Samuel Hosein (Hussein) Othman Mansour.

Thanks; Ussif

Verification of image (Sudan)[edit]

Hi, its Ussif again

If I understand correctly, your query is the reliability of the source I placed on the article. Its origins are direct from the hands of the party, also I am in posession of news paper articles(although they are in arabic and I believe one in French and another couple in another few European language) and further documents that could verify the document and back it. If question arises to the authenticity of the source, this: Image:NewPartyDocument.jpg. is the photograph of the original, arabic document that registered the Liberal Democrats. I have access to other authentic documents and news paper articles as such (although not many of which are in Arabic), if you wish, I can send some of these via e-mail directly to you. And yes, I am fully certain the party's name is the Liberal Democrats, for further evidence of this, I can provide sources produced by the party itself stating its own identity, again if you wish this can also be sent directly to you by e-mail, also the direct translation of that section of the party's name in Arabic is not 'Independant', but it is 'Free', or liberal. Also, I will add sources to the page as you have requested to help verify

Thank You

Ussif

Did I hear you say "overhaul"?[edit]

Hey, Carabinieri! Mind if I take the initiative and overhaul your page for you? ;) — Webdinger BLAH | SZ

I've finished the overhaul, and you can take a look at it at User:Webdinger/Sandbox. If you have any suggestions/comments/criticism, please feel completely free to post them on my talk page. Thanks! — Webdinger BLAH | SZ 23:53, 11 July 2006 (UTC)
Wonderful! Thanks for giving me the opportunity and challenge of overhauling your userpage. — Webdinger BLAH | SZ 18:52, 12 July 2006 (UTC)

Czech and Norway writer stubs[edit]

I was going through old stub proposals, and saw that both {{Czech-writer-stub}} and {{Norway-writer-stub}} look like they've been approved. The 7 day waiting period has passed, so it's time to create and populate them. If you need help with that, I would gladly offer my assistance. I've created a few other writer-stub variants, so I'm somewhat familiar with the territory. Let me know. Have a great day and happy editing! ~ Amalas rawr =^_^= 14:03, 11 July 2006 (UTC)

I went ahead and created them and I'm currently in the process of populating them. ~ Amalas rawr =^_^= 16:14, 11 July 2006 (UTC)

NHS Stub discussion[edit]

Hi. I notice that there has been no further discussion on the above subject since my reply of 10th June. Please can you confirm that your concerns have been adequately addressed, and that you don't have any further objections to the creation of Category:National Health Service stubs? If that's not the case, please continue the discussion at the location I've linked to above, so that the discussion stays in one place. Many thanks, Waggers 21:24, 12 July 2006 (UTC)

Amina crafts[edit]

I removed your speedy tag from this page. It wasn't nonsense. What it obviously is is advertising/spam. While it is unfortunate in my eyes, this is not a valid speedy criterium per WP:SPEEDY. I have added a prod instead. This is just a heads up. Thanks. Dipics 19:33, 14 July 2006 (UTC)

Libya stubs[edit]

Saw your post on the stub-sorting proposal and agreed strongly. Since there has been no disagreement on it and it has been nearly a week since the intial proposal, I went ahead and created Category:Libya stubs, along with the corresponding stub. It does need to be populated and I have started doing so, but more certainly can be done. Thanks--Thomas.macmillan 18:10, 17 July 2006 (UTC)

WikiProject Organized Labour[edit]

Hi Carabinieri. I saw your name on the project page, and thought I would say welcome. Nice to see someone working on the IWW page. Cheers. --Bookandcoffee 17:03, 21 July 2006 (UTC)

Welcome to the Military history WikiProject![edit]

Footy bio stubs[edit]

I was glad to see that you have created some more of these stubs. I hope that you went through the right rigmarole; I created Czech-footy-bio-stub and was castigated because I hadn't gone through it.--Runcorn 19:40, 27 July 2006 (UTC)

Could you check this translation for me?[edit]

Just read it and compare with the German version and say if my translation is OK or needs correction. If there is still major work to do, just return it. Tahnk you. Some parts are quite freely translated, because the German version had no grammar.

Image Licensing[edit]

Hi Carabinieri,

Both of the images (this one and the other) are tagged with this template, which is similar to the English one. The Persian template read: "There is no information about the source of this image. Therefore, its copyright status is unknown. Unless its copyright status and source is provided, this image will be deleted".

Cheers, Siba 15:43, 28 August 2006 (UTC)

Hi Carabinieri this is about Al-Manar[edit]

Hi edit on al-manar and it has been updated alot recently, i've just stumbled on you page of sources on al-manar and posted a link to it from the al-manar talk page. These should be very usful, come round and lets make it the featured article you wanted.Hypnosadist 00:07, 3 September 2006 (UTC)

labour/labor/trade/worker stubs[edit]

Per my comment at Wikipedia:Stub types for deletion/Log/2006/September/2, I'm not comfortable closing this nomination without each potentially affected template and category being tagged, since there's been enough to-and-fro on this that it seems less than clear-cut. If you're agreeable to doing so, I'd suggest re-listing, to make sure we've had input from all interested parties. Alai 01:02, 11 September 2006 (UTC)

Organized labour stubs[edit]

Hi Carabinieri. As Alai noted, the Wikipedia:Stub types for deletion/Log/2006/September/2 discussion has been closed. I re-started it at Wikipedia:Stub types for deletion/Log/2006/September/11. I hope you will re-join the conversation. On a personal note - I think I was more than a little abrupt in my comments on the previous nomination. Please accept my apologies if it seemed like I was being overly aggressive. Cheers.--Bookandcoffee 17:48, 11 September 2006 (UTC)

link to bundesliga[edit]

Hello, when you want to link to the article about the Bundesliga, please do not link to Bundesliga, as that is a disambiguation page (which nothing should be linked to). Instead link to the one of the options found on that page such as Bundesliga (football) by writing out [[Bundesliga (football)|Budesliga]]. Regards, Jeff3000 03:41, 12 September 2006 (UTC)

{{Scotland-org-stub}}[edit]

Please don't remove {{Scotland-org-stub}} when sorting stubs into the UK companies stub. UK-company-stub is not a subcat of {{Scotland-org-stub}}. Thanks. --Mais oui! 21:19, 13 September 2006 (UTC)

Errr... since when did companies stop being organisations?!?? We do not have a Scotland-company-stub yet, and when we do it will certainly be a subcat of Scotland-org-stubs. (And even if that were true, why remove the stub altogether rather than just changing it to a plain Scotland-stub?) --Mais oui! 21:24, 13 September 2006 (UTC)

Gewerkschaft der Polizei[edit]

Hi Carabinieri. I'm certainly OK with the idea of moving this to Trade Union of the Police. I'll defer to your opinion about which translation is best, (given I don't speak German :). I would note that "German Police Union" actually sounds like a union name, as opposed to a literal translation, but your logic makes sense to me.

The source I used for starting many of these articles often had both the native language name and a translation - but the translations for the DGB were clearly imprecise descriptions rather than true names. (eg. GEW was just education and science), so I stuck with the original names.

Just out of curiosity, would you move IG Metall and Ver.di to English traslations, given their prominence and the familiarity of the names?--Bookandcoffee 15:18, 16 September 2006 (UTC)

GDR project[edit]

Thanks for your message! Now that there seems to be some interest, I'll draft a proposal in my userspace and will try to get this started, but it might take me another week or so. Happy editing, Kusma (討論) 07:35, 19 September 2006 (UTC)

{{Europe topic}}[edit]

Hey I just saw Trade unions in Germany. I like the Europe template, nice idea. --Bookandcoffee 23:12, 20 September 2006 (UTC)

Did you know..?[edit]

Re [2] - Did you know that stub type is solely for stub articles on companies in mainland China? :-D — Instantnood 22:19, 24 September 2006 (UTC)

Thanks so much for your replying. Hong Kong is part of the People's Republic of China, but Hong Kong and mainland China are separate economies. {{China-company-stub}} was created for and is solely tagged on stub articles on companies of mainland China. — Instantnood 22:27, 24 September 2006 (UTC)
{{China-company-stub}} was created for stub articles on companies of mainland China, and it has never been applied to any companies of Macao. Yes both Hong Kong and Macao are part of the People's Republic of China, but Hong Kong, Macao and Mainland China are separate economies. See also other similar stub types, such as buildings and structures. — Instantnood 22:41, 24 September 2006 (UTC)
The above is reinterpreting something with a POV. Until this has been publicly discussed (or has it already been done?) one person's opinion does not triumph over more than one other person's unless one is an expert in the field. Are you an expert, Instantnood (e.g. civil servant, professional, academic etc.)? Jsw663 14:38, 25 September 2006 (UTC)
