Hello User talk:CharlesMartel. Welcome to Wikipedia. I fixed the text on Mahuta Tawhiao. See Help:Editing for general help on this sort of thing. --FloNight 07:31, 4 February 2006 (UTC)


Hello CharlesMartel, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your name and the date.

Coach Howell[edit]

A tag has been placed on Coach Howell, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article seems to be a biographical account about a person, group of people, or band, but it does not indicate how or why he/she/they is/are notable. If you can indicate why Coach Howell is really notable, I advise you to edit the article promptly, and also put a note on Talk:Coach Howell. Any admin should check for such edits before deleting the article. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Please read our criteria for speedy deletion, particularly item 7 under Articles. You might also want to read our general biography criteria. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself. To contest the tagging and request that admins should wait a while for you to assert his/her/their notability, please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and then immediately add such an assertion. It is also a very good idea to add citations from reliable sources to ensure that your article will be verifiable. -- Fan-1967 14:59, 27 September 2006 (UTC)


The answer to your request is: No, we are not going to leave up intentionally false information so that you can "use it as an example to schoolchildren." Don't post the fake article again. NawlinWiki 15:01, 27 September 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for correcting "monophone" to "monoglot."[edit]

I added the sentence about how Montrealers switch back and forth from French to English "at whim." I am a monoglot who commuted bi-weekly to Montreal for about 18 months. I doubt that a native would even notice how strange this is. I made up the term "monophone" by reference to "Anglophone", "Francophone", and "allophone." I did not even realize how strange this is until I heard an american radio broadcast of the concession speech and acceptance speech of the candidates of a Quebec election. The Radio station had a translator on hand to do a simultaneous translation from French, but the result was hopelessly muddled as the two candidates switched back and forth between languages. I then realized that I had heard this happen all the time in Montreal unless the speakers knew I was a monoglot.

I'm not sure what to make of this edit – I think 1945 makes more sense in that sentence. Happy editing! Wikipeditor 21:37, 9 October 2006 (UTC)

Luso American[edit]

Yes, the article is rather poor, but the semicolons were used properly. Without them, it is difficult (at least for non-U.S. natives) to distinguish cities from states. --Nelson Ricardo 04:04, 1 December 2006 (UTC)

Please[edit]

Sorry I don’t have a native English-level but a comment of yours seemed to be rancorous. Maybe I use improper words and my English grammar is not correct but if you have any useful comments please write me objectively. Kuruc; 10:48 (UTC), 11th of December, 2006.

Edit summaries and minor edits[edit]

Information.svg

Hello. Please don't forget to provide an edit summary. See Help:Edit summary. Also please review guidelines for major and minor edits, as many of the edits that you have checked as minor are major edits. These are important matters of Wikipedia etiquette. Thank you. Ward3001 04:13, 8 April 2007 (UTC)

I have tried to be polite about your overuse of "Minor edit" designation in articles. Please read Help:Minor edit, especially the phrase describing a minor edit: typo corrections, formatting and presentational changes, rearranging of text without modifying content. Adding, deleting, rewriting, and otherwise changing the meaning of a sentence or paragraph is not a minor edit. Stated bluntly, you are being rude to other Wikipedians, whether that is your intention or not. Thank you. Ward3001 05:00, 15 April 2007 (UTC)

Creole Language Louisiana[edit]

I'm not sure who you are, or what your credentials are, but you clearly are not a native of Louisiana nor are degreed in Creolistics or an area of linguistics dealing specifically with Louisiana Creole.

I find it insulting that you continue to omit factual information provided by native Louisiana speakers who are providing realistic factual information on the Creole community of Louisiana.

Everyone with any common sense inside of Louisiana knows that Creole is widely spoken all along Bayou Têche in Saints Landry, Martin, Mary and Iberia Parishes, along the Mississippi River in Saints James, John the Baptist and Ascension Parish, as well as on False River in Pointe-Coupée Parish. See the sources I added to support this.

On the documentary, I am in the documentary, and know André GLADU and his team well enough. The language of the documentary is French because it's the language of the producers and their company, but the documentary, I confirm, deals solely on Creole identity and not Creole language and there is no Creole spoken on the documentary. So why do you feel this has any bearing on Creole LANGUAGE page?

Lastly, I fail to find any of your sources which are not internet sites and which tend to be unreliable sources. Where is the exhaustive works cited for your work. You continue to remove others more reliable resources and replace with your internet sources.

Again, if facts are what you require for a site that's not even yours, then provide your own before requiring from others.

This is stupid. You have to have sources, it doesn't matter if Wikipedia isn't my site. "Common Sense" doesn't have any grounding. Ethnolouge and MLA are reliable enough. I have no idea what documentary you're talking about. Use question marks.CharlesMartel 04:38, 15 June 2007 (UTC)CharlesMartel

Children of Men[edit]

Hi, Charles. Quick question for you. I'm curious, why did you change the following text from The audience swims through an ocean of Christian symbolism to The movie contains much Christian symbolism, for example...'[1]. Per WP:FACR, the prose should be well written, which "means that the prose is engaging, even brilliant, and of a professional standard." And per WP:TPA, the prose should be engaging, and the language descriptive and interesting. First of all, the original text is more active, and summarizes the theme of Christian symbolism metaphorically in relation to the text describing the British terrorists; the cited source reads as follows: "The Brit terrorists who secretly rally and act to protect the "fugees" rights are called "Fishes," a reference to the earliest Christians that is just one of the movie's more commonplace literate niceties...the "fugee" Madonna...and crying infant suddenly silence a raging war zone, as if the Annunciation had suddenly happened in the middle of the battle of Actium." Of course, that is just the tip of the iceberg, with the metaphor of the Virgin Mary (Mythologist Joseph Campbell calls the Virgin Mary the greatest metaphor in history) as just one of a dozen references to P.D. Jame's original Christian allegory, The Children of Men. Even the director is clear on this point, acknowledging that the film is "almost like a look at Christianity". He even commissioned Orthodox Christian composer John Tavener to create a Christian score for the film. I can go and on, so please tell me why you changed a sentence that accurately summarizes the section in question. Lastly, if you need me to add more sources about the Christian symbolism, I've got a stack of them on my desk, so let me know what I can do to restore the original text to your satisfaction. Thank you. —Viriditas | Talk 00:43, 30 May 2007 (UTC)

French Flanders edits[edit]

"Why sourced linguistic information would be removed I have no idea. The geography and WW2 information is unsourced, but whatever... 03:59, 27 July 2007 CharlesMartel" Copied from edit summary at French Flanders.

As the edit summary notes, the sourced info you are referring to was not removed. It was moved intact with references to Westhoek (region) because it only applies to that region, not to all of French Flanders. The Romance Flanders (southeastern) half of French Flanders has never been Dutch-speaking (or not for a millenium anyway). Sentences such as "The traditional language of the French Flanders region is a dialect of the Dutch language known as West Flemish...It was once the dominant language of the region..."[2] imply that all of French Flanders was relatively recently Dutch speaking when such is only the case for French Westhoek. Hence the move.
As far as the "unsourced" additions, they are from fr:Flandre française, nl:Frans-Vlaanderen, and other English Wikipedia pages such as Reichskommissar and Picard language. Since these are other Wikipedia pages, they are not citeable but have been potentially subject to the same oversight as any Wikpedia page.
It is clear from the French and Dutch articles as well as sources such as ones cited here and here that French Flanders includes more than just French Westhoek (~Arrondissement of Dunkirk). However, the article and its images dealt only with Westhoek so I expanded the article to include the non-Westhoek areas of Lille (the center of French Flanders) and Douai and moved the information exclusively on Westhoek to its own article.
I have posted this to Talk:French Flanders as well if further discussion is desired.
Thanks.

Flag of Serbia[edit]

Why reverting. The infobox Flag is not mandatory. But the compromise that both flags commons:Flag of Serbia (national).svg and commons:Flag of Serbia (state).svg should be equall and portrayed in the same level which guarantees that no version is dominant over the other is more important than a infobox which doesn't guarantee that.

On the discussion page of that article you could have read that Nikola Smolenski, Duje and I reached a "consensus" about the issue. When I say that a consensus were reached I do not mean literary that we all sat and signed an contract but instead Nikola drawn that table and nobody complained.

The infobox could become mandatory only when all flag article use it, but until then it is a matter of careful consideration what the consequences are.

When the infobox were used - just in a few days you had anonymous users who changed the order of flags in the infobox. That is not acceptable because the order of flags when listed (one below the other) is: National first and State second. If portrayed in the same level then it is State left, National right.

This infobox is not to be used without the table that Nikola made.

Imbris (talk) 23:07, 24 February 2008 (UTC)

I agree that the infobox doesn't give preference but explain that to users who change the order. Those two giant flags are what was before the infobox and it worked just fine. Those two giant flags were agreed upon by three users (myself included) who spent a great deal of their time discussing about the order the position and much, much, more (in details and in general). And here come Charles to teach us all a lesson. It is a valid lesson but not aplicable to the sittuation. -- Imbris (talk) 00:20, 25 February 2008 (UTC)
Why this insistance of yours, the infobox is not the Holy Bible. If you want infobox to stay let contributions from others stay as well. When we had the table with two flags we had less problems with revertment of the order in which flags appear. The infobox doesn't appear on all of the Flag articles - why should it appear on this particular article where the order of flags is still controversial. sr:Zastava Srbije has the same order but some users from Serbia come to the English Wikipedia and change the order (probably because they cannot change it at home). If you care about this topic then why wouldn't you help with such users. Please leave things as they were it is better than always looking to see if the article is in correct form. -- Imbris (talk) 22:27, 25 February 2008 (UTC)

Another style, sh-gäl, -gl, shä- 'is from The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language but is not helpful to many everyday readers because of it's symbols.

I am especially interested because I am a descendant or relative of Henry and would like to know more about his brothers and sister. Thank you!

Seraph spelling[edit]

You added a "samekh" to the seraph page. This is incorrect. There is already a "sin" character denoting the "s" sound.

עברית (Hebrew) n. - ‮שרף, מלאך‬ —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.43.233.110 (talk) 14:05, 11 August 2010 (UTC)

You really should use google translate if you can't read hebrew:

http://translate.google.com/#auto%7Ciw%7Cseraph%20seraphim%0A


Hello,

I too have noticed that your spelling of "Seraph(im)" is incorrect and that you first added an unnecessary Samekh in this edit and then an unnecessary S(h)in in this edit and this edit. The spelling by 68.43.233.110 (without the extra "s" at the beginning) is indeed correct and can be found in both Wiktionary and the Hebrew Wikipedia. I've edited the article accordingly.

By your edit summaries, it looks to me that you're having some sort of problem displaying the original letter Sin (שׂ, with the dot) so you added a redundant one (ש, without the dot, indistinguishable from Shin, שׁ). Your font settings might be what's causing the problem. --334a (talk) 03:34, 28 August 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Cuban Hebrew Congregation[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Cuban Hebrew Congregation requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about an organization or company, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion," which appears inside of the speedy deletion ({{db-...}}) tag (if no such tag exists, the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate). Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page 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 page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Basket of Puppies 16:33, 22 June 2011 (UTC)

It has the authority to impose binding solutions to disputes between editors, primarily for serious conduct disputes the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the authority to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail.
