Terror cats discussion[edit]

Hi, quite ironic that after basically stating we don't have all day to wait for responses I myself end up quite busy in real life and in other things. I will get round to responding very soon hopefully. Mabuska (talk) 09:43, 22 August 2017 (UTC)

Don't worry Mabuska, after all, real life is what matters. I hope we can reach a lasting agreement about the cat's issue. Thanks for let me know.--Darius (talk) 16:15, 22 August 2017 (UTC)

WikiProject Ireland talk page[edit]

Hi, it looks like there was a little accident with your edit to the WikiProject Ireland talk page, where your signature appeared a bunch of times in an odd place and broke the header. I've taken the liberty to remove these extra signatures with this edit. -- benzband (talk) 09:11, 24 August 2017 (UTC)

Thank you Benzband, I was using VisualEditor from a device I am not familiar with, I guess this was the cause of the problem, best regards.--Darius (talk) 11:52, 24 August 2017 (UTC)

Question[edit]

Do you remember the edit warring IP that resulted in your block some time ago. They have a dedicated page, WP:BKFIP, now. There is an arbcom case in which they are involved WP:ARC#Winhunter and WP:ADMINACCT. You may be able to comment on your experience. WCMemail 16:07, 24 August 2017 (UTC)

Hi J., thanks for let me know. I will be always grateful with you for your help on that occasion. I have my own theory about these IP(s), but since I have no names and no evidence it's just a hunch. However, I will put my two cents there as soon as possible. Cheers!.--Darius (talk) 22:48, 24 August 2017 (UTC)

Comments, so far, are as follows:
Just added an illustration, on the "race", on etwi page:etwi General issues, or, whatsoever, the page is Father and Son, and the point is, that for all other users/viewers, etc., except for etwi (as for other ones, don't know) the Fater and Son stand right, for login users they are not, standing/laying right, depends on the "point of view", 'course...
Plus, it appears that, e.g., etwi and enwi, are very different "things", though, existing on the same funding.Pietadè (talk) 20:40, 9 September 2017 (UTC)
Hi mate, sorry but I don't get the point "right" ;). The problem here is what display reflects better Ülo Õuna's intentions. I think that, if that is the case, you should contact the editor who uploaded the first image on 2008. If the issue is, however, that the pic is shown laying right for etwiki users, (BTW, the image stands right for me, login in or out) then for some unknown reason the article is linking to the 2008 version of the photo. For your knowledge, I have dealt with the same troubles while uploading images to enwiki. I solved the problem by increasing the size of the pic.--Darius (talk) 22:21, 9 September 2017 (UTC)

Fantastic work, Pietadé, sad to see that your Estonian translation of Il Principe is no longer fully available online, hope you can find another website to republish it on the internet in the near future. Best Wishes for 2018.--Darius (talk) 15:27, 7 January 2018 (UTC)

New Page Reviewing[edit]

Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg
Hello, DagosNavy.

As one of Wikipedia's most experienced Wikipedia editors,
Would you please consider becoming a New Page Reviewer? Reviewing/patrolling a page doesn't take much time but it requires a good understanding of Wikipedia policies and guidelines; currently Wikipedia needs experienced users at this task. (After gaining the flag, patrolling is not mandatory. One can do it at their convenience). But kindly read the tutorial before making your decision. Thanks. — Insertcleverphrasehere (or here) 09:14, 6 December 2017 (UTC)

2017 Military Historian of the Year and Newcomer of the Year nominations and voting[edit]

As we approach the end of the year, the Military History project is looking to recognise editors who have made a real difference. Each year we do this by bestowing two awards: the Military Historian of the Year and the Military History Newcomer of the Year. The co-ordinators invite all project members to get involved by nominating any editor they feel merits recognition for their contributions to the project. Nominations for both awards are open between 00:01 on 2 December 2017 and 23:59 on 15 December 2017. After this, a 14-day voting period will follow commencing at 00:01 on 16 December 2017. Nominations and voting will take place on the main project talkpage: here and here. Thank you for your time. For the co-ordinators, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 08:35, 8 December 2017 (UTC)

Ukraine War in Donbass Timeline[edit]

Hello I'd like to ask if it would be possible for you to condense the information provided on a daily basis: We know Ukraine and Russia are shooting each other daily but that spam is taking away notice from other events that are occurring that are being posted in the timeline.

So please if you could highlight those events as opposed to daily shelling reports or reduce the spam. The timeline pages for this conflict are far less useful for news then in other conflicts, as an example Syria. — Preceding unsigned comment added by CostinRazvan (talkcontribs) 10:04, 21 December 2017 (UTC)

Hi there. First of all, I was unable to find any line or even a single word consistent with unsolicited advertising (i.e. Spam). If you were referring instead to "propaganda", it was already discussed here. You can read my opinion there, but i will repost here what Wikipedia guidelines say about what you call propaganda: "reliable sources are not required to be neutral, unbiased, or objective. Sometimes non-neutral sources are the best possible sources for supporting information about the different viewpoints held on a subject."
Regarding the "daily shelling reports" they only reflect the official, summarized releases from the military of the two (or three) parties in conflict, namely Ukraine, DNR and LNR. If the info is plenty of detail about weaponry, locations and casualties is just because a mere citation of the number of incidents (daily or weekly) would overlook the full picture, such as the use of banned heavy weapons, armoured vehicles or drones, which make the fighting certainly more intense than a simple exchange of small arms fire or rocket propelled grenades.
Someone (not you) has expressed his concern on the issue of readeability. Just as you would not read a dictionary in the same way you read an essay or a novel, you also would not read a timeline or chronology in the same way you read an ordinary article. The reader of this timelines will search a precise date or week for an specific topic (for example: Motorola's assassination, Battle of Debaltseve, fall of Igor Plotnitsky), he will not read it section by section as you usually do with an article about a particular subject. Ah, I almost forget it; "highlighting" is against Wikipedia's spirit: read the first line of the message below "Military history is one of the most important subjects when speak of sum of all human knowledge. " Darius (talk) 02:20, 22 December 2017 (UTC)

User group for Military Historians[edit]

Greetings,

"Military history" is one of the most important subjects when speak of sum of all human knowledge. To support contributors interested in the area over various language Wikipedias, we intend to form a user group. It also provides a platform to share the best practices between military historians, and various military related projects on Wikipedias. An initial discussion was has been done between the coordinators and members of WikiProject Military History on English Wikipedia. Now this discussion has been taken to Meta-Wiki. Contributors intrested in the area of military history are requested to share their feedback and give suggestions at Talk:Discussion to incubate a user group for Wikipedia Military Historians.

I recently sent you an invitation to join NPP, but you also might be the right candidate for another related project, AfC, which is also extremely backlogged.
Would you please consider becoming an Articles for Creation reviewer? Articles for Creation reviewers help new users learn the ropes of creating their first articles, and identify whether topics are suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia. Reviewing drafts doesn't take much time but it requires a good understanding of Wikipedia inclusion policies and guidelines; currently Wikipedia needs experienced users at this task. (After requesting to be added to the project, reviewing is not mandatory. One can do it at their convenience). But kindly read the reviewing instructions before making your decision.

FYI, Mountain Meadows Massacre vs Mountain Meadows massacre[edit]

FYI, there was a discussion about which is correct here [1]. I appriciate you being bold, but it would be more helpful in this case to discuss why you disagree with consensus rather than unilateral action against consensus with a recent discussion. For the record, I lean MMM but don't really have a dog in this fight, so I'm not taking any of this personally, just pointing you to the fact that this was discussed on the article talk page. Cheers, Dave (talk) 00:47, 6 March 2018 (UTC)

Unaware of this, thanks for letting me know, Dave, Best regards.--Darius (talk) 01:04, 6 March 2018 (UTC)
Ah...I was just coming here to say the same thing. The editorial consensus on the page was to MMM which, to me in this case, seems more correct than MMm. I just looked it up to see how the sources state the name and it seems to me that most of them go with MMM (plus just now I was thinking if we were going to alter the order of the words it would be Massacre at Mountain Meadows). Shearonink (talk) 03:19, 6 March 2018 (UTC)
Mountain Meadows Massacre is a proper name, just as the Boston Massacre, Saint Valentine's Day Massacre, Wounded Knee Massacre, Boston Tea Party, American Revolution, American Revolutionary War, American Civil War, Black Hawk War, Fox Wars, American Indian Wars, and Red River Rebellion are all proper names. There is an editorial consensus for the name Mountain Meadows Massacre on its talk page. Jerry Stockton (talk) 13:51, 6 March 2018 (UTC)

Question[edit]

I don't see why you would remove "sourced data" from the info box. I also do not see how it was not "clean", it organized the forces and had permissible flags used to represent them.

Sincerely, Simon Levchenko (talk) 15:27, 25 March 2018 (UTC)

Hi. See WP:SOVEREIGNFLAG. I want to make clear that while I am not an adamant defender of this particular WP guideline, I think a tidy infobox is the best way to convey a brief preview of the article's content. I have restored all the sourced content you have removed (I guess by accident) in your past edits. Best Regards.--Darius (talk) 17:03, 25 March 2018 (UTC)
I see. What if there were to be no flags? Sincerely, Simon Levchenko (talk) 03:50, 26 March 2018 (UTC)

April 2018 Milhist Backlog Drive[edit]

G'day all, please be advised that throughout April 2018 the Military history Wikiproject is running its annual backlog elimination drive. This will focus on several key areas:

  • tagging and assessing articles that fall within the project's scope
  • adding or improving listed resources on Milhist's task force pages
  • updating the open tasks template on Milhist's task force pages
  • creating articles that are listed as "requested" on the project's various lists of missing articles.

As with past Milhist drives, there are points awarded for working on articles in the targeted areas, with barnstars being awarded at the end for different levels of achievement.

The drive is open to all Wikipedians, not just members of the Military history project, although only work on articles that fall (broadly) within the scope of military history will be considered eligible. This year, the Military history project would like to extend a specific welcome to members of Wikipedia:WikiProject Women in Red, and we would like to encourage all participants to consider working on helping to improve our coverage of women in the military. This is not the sole focus of the edit-a-thon, though, and there are aspects that hopefully will appeal to pretty much everyone.

The drive starts at 00:01 UTC on 1 April and runs until 23:59 UTC on 30 April 2018. Those interested in participating can sign up here.

For the Milhist co-ordinators, AustralianRupert and MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 10:53, 27 March 2018 (UTC)

Mar del Plata images[edit]

Hello! While looking through files uploaded long ago, I stumbled upon File:Lobo-Banquina.jpg and File:CasaMarplatense-2.jpg which you uploaded over a decade ago. I'm sure both were useful at the time they were uploaded, but sadly they now both sit orphaned. Do you have any planned use for them on any encyclopedia article (in any language)? If so, I'm happy to transfer them to Commons so they can be used more broadly. If not, I will propose them for deletion per WP:NOTHOST (as cleaner images of sea lions and of Mar del Plata now both exist). Let me know what you think! Happy editing! Ajpolino (talk) 03:15, 24 April 2018 (UTC)

Hi Ajpolino, thanks for letting me know in advance. No objections, feel free to transfer them to Commons. Best Regards.-- Darius (talk) 22:47, 24 April 2018 (UTC)

Hi Pietadé, obviously a case of hacking by the association of friends of Zhyrinovsky or something like that ;). Remember also that ATO was terminated today, maybe they are transfering info to another facebook account, and pro-Russian hackers took advantage of the situation. I will keep an eye on this, thanks for letting me know.---Darius (talk) 23:54, 30 April 2018 (UTC)

What a pity! I've missed the oportunity of buying at least a rusty T-55 to display it in my old house backyard! (I moved to a smaller house last year) ;).

Hope he would not face 400-500 thousands of them in the near future...Darius (talk) 23:14, 12 May 2018 (UTC)

By the way, today was the 1st instance io noted/noticed that "Kubinka database", named “NDR”, or whatever, was down... ("←→", i.e., hacking apparently works both ways, n'case there was a doubt), at first DB inaccessible, then accessible, but not in the strict meaning of the word, and, finally, accessible and readable (today read in Censor.NET mr Avakov stating that the Ukrainian police forces (totalling to ~2,000 persons) shall take Donbass back soon. "foot-ball, policy, wars and deaths")...—Pietadè (talk) 12:21, 8 June 2018 (UTC)

I guess they will actually try the Croatian solution, but without NATO support all this mess could end in a Russian invasion, and with a NATO intervention it could end in something worse...so no easy end in sight.Darius (talk) 22:47, 10 June 2018 (UTC)
