Yugoslav wars[edit]

Good day friend, what do you think of my edit on the lead of the Yugoslav Wars article? (Interestedinfairness (talk) 23:18, 14 June 2009 (UTC)).

Would like your input here, regarding the Yugoslav wars (again):

Please consider restoring[edit]

Re: [1] - I think the subject is notable and made a justifiable stub. If you disagree, can you bring it at WT:POLAND for further discussion? --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk 22:50, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

Ditto for [2]. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk 22:51, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

Francesco Nullo[edit]

Thanks for expanding this article. I think we can DYK it soon, but could you add inline references? Since you can read Italian, I see there are plenty of sources, including some full view books on Google Print. I have found some online Polish sources, but they are not very extensive. I will now take a break from editing this article to avoid edit conflicts. If that's fine with you, after you are done expanding and referencing the article with Italian sources, I will add the Polish ones. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk 18:40, 19 January 2011 (UTC)

In my experience, sometimes we have no choice but to use old sources. But I will do what I can with the Polish ones shortly. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk 19:47, 19 January 2011 (UTC)
I still have one more ref to go through. Could you find the English/Italian name for his secondary school - Kolegium Biskupie Celana w Wal S. Martino, które w owym czasie uchodziło za najnowocześniejszą szkołę w całej Lombardii – Wenecji. It doesn't seem to be translated as Bishop College or Celana College...--Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk 21:14, 19 January 2011 (UTC)

T:TDYK[edit]

When you create articles better than stubs, such as Italy–Poland relations, I suggest you add a few inline references and submit them to T:TDYK, so that your work can appear on Wikipedia's main page. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk 21:20, 19 January 2011 (UTC)

Edit summaries[edit]

Hi, I have been looking at the edit history of Italy-Yugoslavia relations and found the most recent entries rather difficult and time consuming to go through due to the paucity of edit summaries. Your newest entries contain just the words "Removed duplicated map". I would draw your attention to Wikipedia: Basic copyediting, the "Edit summaries", particularly line eight, which starts "Generally speaking..."
Happy editing

DYK for Francesco Nullo[edit]

HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 12:03, 26 January 2011 (UTC)

Giovanni Rustici[edit]

You mention him here. I cannot find any ref to verify this, or anything to even prove he was notable. I suggest that if you can reference him, you move the note on him to the newly expanded battle of Krzykawka. Also, you may find this article of interest (email me if you cannot access the full version). --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk 18:17, 27 January 2011 (UTC)

I am sure he is notable, but before he is mentioned in the context of Krzykawka, I'd like to see a reference for that. All I am seeing now are Wikipedia forks and mirrors :( --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk 19:50, 27 January 2011 (UTC)
The library website would be ok for that level of an article; does it mention Krzykawka and him being exiled to Siberia? --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk 22:53, 27 January 2011 (UTC)
That's great, could you add this to the article as a proper inline cite? --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk 00:41, 28 January 2011 (UTC)

Having a personal version of an article[edit]

I don't think this sort of thing is allowed, meaning having a personal version of an article and ignoring edits from other users. For example when you copy your own version into the article you wiped out all changes by others. Obviously that shouldn't happen. This would only lead to reverting between the version instead you should edit the standing article. Tüzes fal (talk) 21:36, 25 April 2011 (UTC)

I since realized that you DID took new edits into account to some degree, I'm sorry for misreading the situtation. However another user([3]) also implemented his version in the article so it's kind of confusing right now. I just hope some of my edits will be preserved as well in the end. Tüzes fal (talk) 00:07, 26 April 2011 (UTC)

2012 Dnipropetrovsk explosions[edit]

The reason why I removed that section was because I could see no clear connection to Tymoshenko in it. Now, I'll admit, I know next to nothing about Ukrainian politics (and when editing, I don't usually stray too far from the Formula One pages), but reading over the page at the time, there was a lot on Tymoshenko and nothing to tie it back to the explosions. In its current form, I'm not seeing anything that directly links the explosions to Tymoshenko, aside from Dnipropetrovsk being her birthplace and the photos being released. It's too circumstantial, and despite being properly referenced, its presence implies that the explosions took place as a form of protest or a political statement about Tymoshenko, but there is nothing to substantiate that implication. But I'm not going to continue to edit the page. I don't know enough about the subject - the closest I get to the Ukraine is a friend from Moldova - and don't have access a wide range of sources on the subject. I only really edited it in the first place because I saw that the page needed to be written in more-encyclopaedic terms. Prisonermonkeys (talk) 11:22, 1 May 2012 (UTC)

Overlinking[edit]

Hi Dans, thanks for your work. Please note that dates, years, common country-names, and common terms are not normally linked on en.WP.

Polje Čepić[edit]

Please revert your edits and move of the article Polje Čepić to Zatka Čepić in all Wikipedia languages and side projects. As you can see in the 2011 census, in the municipality Kršan of the county of Istria there two separate settlements - Polje Čepić with 148 inhabitants, and Zatka Čepić with 31 inhabitants. Your move was unsubstantiated, it was about village Polje Čepić, and not small hamlet Zatka Čepić. Easy check of the sources used in the article, "Population" note, and its history, aim to this conclusion. Your move was without sense and reason. Zatka Čepić is so irrelevant is not even mentioned in the Istrian Encyclopedia. Return all articles and links how were previously.--Crovata (talk) 22:18, 19 August 2015 (UTC)

What are exact Italian official names for villages Polje Čepić, and Zatka Čepić? In Croatia by the term Felicia is considered the Čepić village, ie. Polje Čepić.--Crovata (talk) 13:53, 20 August 2015 (UTC)

Morten Jung-Olsen[edit]

Hello. I moved your newly created article to a draft space. The new title is Draft:Morten Jung-Olsen. Based on the sources provided and based on my own searches, it seems there is not enough support for this article as biography of a living person per WP:BLP, especially given the claims made in this article. This is contentious material and all the negative claims need to be backed up by independent reliable sources, again please see WP:BLP. I have translated your references and they do not seem to be sufficient. In any case, please go through WP:AFC for release of this article. Thanks. ---Steve Quinn (talk) 03:02, 16 July 2017 (UTC)

We noticed though that when you edited Knights Hospitaller, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Charles V (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Your edits on Boris Malagurski[edit]

Hello there,

Thanks for your edits, but it's not customary to repeat link names that have already been linked once. I reverted the edits, but don't be confused by my classification of my revert as vandalism, because that was referring to the anon that edited before you and removed sourced content. Just to be clear, I don't consider your edits to be vandalism, but I do think there is no need to link, for example, James Bissett or Michel Chossudovsky more than once. I hope we can agree on that!

Regards,

--UrbanVillager (talk) 12:54, 13 November 2017 (UTC)

Thanks @UrbanVillager: well understood - my edits were spurred by the fact that only some names in one list were not wikilinked; that makes it look strange. Is there any exception to the rule for when a name is cited more than once alongside others in a list? (I don't see having a name linked twice in a page as being necessarily overlinking, but this is up for debate). Thanks, --Dans (talk) 15:16, 13 November 2017 (UTC)
Hm, good question, let me look into it. If you find anything on the matter in the meantime, do let me know. You've made me curious about possible exceptions as well. --UrbanVillager (talk) 19:01, 13 November 2017 (UTC)

List of mosques in Bosnia and Herzegovina[edit]

Hi, thank you for your edit adding context for the List of mosques in Bosnia and Herzegovina article. While it is fresh, though, could you possibly please provide a reference, hopefully as an inline citation (e.g. perhaps in format <ref>Author, ''Source title'', Date</ref>))? Either way, thanks for your contribution.

By the way, I happen to have worked on creating/developing many lists of mosques and churches. --Doncram (talk) 19:40, 24 November 2017 (UTC)

Argh, sorry, I didn't look well enough at the edit history to see that you had just created the whole list. Thanks for creating it! Thanks also for adding a footnote there, possibly while i was making my comment here. There is something garbled about the sentence though, which needs fixing ("45% of them, of which 81% of the 1,149 mosques"?), which I would just try to fix but your source is off-line. --Doncram (talk) 20:13, 24 November 2017 (UTC)
No problem @Doncram:! The data and reference are lifted from the table at the bottom of Islam in Bosnia and Herzegovina, in case you wish to take a look there. Thanks, --Dans (talk) 20:21, 24 November 2017 (UTC)
The sentence is still garbled and doesn't make sense. I see the table you refer to, but that is messed up too, mentioning "282" pre-war mosques of one type despite 900 having been destroyed during the war. This makes me think you don't have direct access to the source, and if so then perhaps it would be best just to provide some link to that section of the Islam in Bosnia and Herzegovina article, where the numbers may be changed/fixed later by someone else. I think the general fact of many mosques having been destroyed should be mentioned without citing the exact numbers in the list-article. --Doncram (talk) 20:49, 24 November 2017 (UTC)
@Doncram:, I've corrected the table recovering the correct numbers from bs.wiki - not a direct source but at least they add up. I'll try to streamline the sentence too. --Dans (talk) 23:18, 24 November 2017 (UTC)
