Tettamanzi[edit]

Hi, Cassandro! You made an edit regarding Dionigi Tettamanzi. Please check my note in the Talk:Dionigi Tettamanzi. Thank you A ntv (talk) 21:39, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

Ildikó Újlaky-Rejtő[edit]

You left a note on my talk page about Ildikó Újlaky-Rejtő, but I'm confused: I don't remember ever hearing of this person before. Can you explain what you're talking about? Nyttend (talk) 00:31, 22 November 2008 (UTC)

I see what you mean. Mistypings are misspellings for what I'm meaning: they're not spelt right :-) Misspellings for whatever reason, including typos, are permitted if they're reasonable — otherwise we'd not have Untied States or United Staets. Nyttend (talk) 00:33, 22 November 2008 (UTC)

Project Congress[edit]

Bioguide and committees[edit]

Bioguide for Biden says he resigned January 15. Not sure what you are seeing. As far as committees, they'll be official once the Senate passes a formal organizing resolution. It's anyone's guess when that will be. Until then, we have the unofficial list of democrats, which could be used to populate articles for now (note some of the seats are left blank, presumably because they haven't decided where Burris and Kaufman are going yet, and Franken (if he ultimately is finalized as winner in Minnesota)]. I haven't seen anything from the Republicans on their proposed membership yet.DCmacnut<> 23:02, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

Roland Burris[edit]

A senator does not officially become a senator until he/she is sworn in. He did not assume office upon appointment. He was the presumptive senator. Did you not see the rucus about his nomination. Yes he said he was already the senator only becuase he knew legally that the Senate could not win a case against seating him. However he did not assume the office until he was swore in. Look at other senators and even congressman. You will notice that they assumed office on the day they were swore in either through election, succession or appointment. —Preceding unsigned comment added by King Cobb (talkcontribs) 23:54, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

Colorado Senators[edit]

  1. The U.S. State of Colorado has both United States Senators and Colorado State Senators.
  2. Colorado is a geographic region of the United States. The State of Colorado is a political entity represented by two United States Senators.
  3. Single redirects are completely acceptable as links. Double redirects must be avoided.
  4. King Cobb is incorrect. In the United States, a swearing-in is a mere formality. An appointed official takes office upon his appointment (and confirmation, if required.) --Buaidh (talk) 17:38, 22 January 2009 (UTC)
Questions: are there senior and junior senators in the State Senate? Colorado link tells about the state, not the region. I know that King Cubb is incorrect. I had some discussions with Rrius and Dcmacnut about this issue. Cassandro (talk) 17:42, 22 January 2009 (UTC)
There are 35 Colorado State Senators. The Senior/Junior distinction in the United States Senate is merely to identify which of the two Senators from a state is the longer serving. For example, Senator Kennedy is commonly referred to on the floor of the Senate as the "Senior Senator from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts." --Buaidh (talk) 17:48, 22 January 2009 (UTC)
Moreover, there are only 35 senatorial districts in Colorado, with one senator representing each district, making senior and junior distinctions irrelevant.DCmacnut<> 18:08, 22 January 2009 (UTC)
That is why I asked this question because in this case "Senior Senator" can't be confused with a seat in the CO Senate. Cassandro (talk) 18:13, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

Baróti Lajos[edit]

Hi Gábor! Sorry to disturb you privately... but what does "f-fel volt" mean? Sorry... I don't know a word in Hungarian! Is it an Hungarian linguistic rule? Thank you! P.S.: Are you an Hungarian sports researcher or something like? --necronudist (talk) 13:49, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

Oh, what a stupid...! I thought it was a linguistic rule or something like, 'cause in many languages f and v are confused, inverted, mispelled or mistyped... However, I think his original surname was the one I wrote, but you've done a good thing reverting my edit 'cause sure it was "magyarized" by Hungarian officers (like the example above: Štefančič/Stefancsics) and it became officially Kratochfill. Sorry again! P.S.: I asked you if you are a football researcher or something like, 'cause I am and I don't know any Hungarian sports/football researcher who can help me with Hungarian players data... so, if you know someone please tell me! --necronudist (talk) 20:32, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

Magyre?[edit]

Hello Cassandro. Out of interest, are you a Magyar? Excuse my ignorance if that is an obvious question. Titch Tucker (talk) 01:10, 7 February 2009 (UTC)

Seniority in the United States Senate[edit]

Ever since the Novemeber elections the page has turned into an ultra confusing mess. There wasn't a seperate section for John Barrasso or Roger Wicker when they were senators elect/designate. Maybe now that the election is over and things have calmed down somebody can simplify the page again.--Dr who1975 (talk) 01:18, 9 February 2009 (UTC)

Answer on your talk page. Cassandro (talk) 01:29, 7 February 2009 (UTC)
Don't know a word of Hungarian I'm afraid, but my sister in-law is a Hungarian from Budapest. I'm just a plain old Scot from Scotland. Titch Tucker (talk) 01:33, 7 February 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the concern[edit]

The main flooding concern is on the other side of the state from me. I'm in the capitol city, where we've also had flooding, but it's fortunately on the opposite side of the city from my along the river. I live around 5 miles from the river on higher ground, so shouldn't be affected. Thanks again for the concern.DCmacnut<> 16:47, 27 March 2009 (UTC)

Kretzoi Miklós at hu.wikipedia.org[edit]

Hi again,
I've boldy started the article "Kretzoi Miklós" on the Hungarian Wikipedia, but it looks like the article is up for speedy deletion. Could you possibly have a little look into this? Thanks again! --Shirt58 (talk) 13:53, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

Hello again. My Hungarian vocabulary has increased significantly since my last comment: I now know what "szerkesztés", "vitalap", "új szakasz" and "A Wikipédiából, a szabad enciklopédiából" means :-) By 2013 I might even be able to say in in magyar nyelv, "Taxi driver, I am interested in Kretzoi Miklós. Please take me to the cheapest hotel in Hungary." --Shirt58 (talk) 11:06, 1 April 2010 (UTC)

Yes, when she renounced her seat (see the article text for that), her place was automatically taken by #17 on the PSD lists, Victor Negrescu. (The PSD won 16 seats, hence the 17th replacing her.) - Biruitorul Talk 15:29, 21 June 2014 (UTC)
