Valvasor[edit]

Hi, Doremo. Is the claim that "the spelling Weikhard is more common in printed sources today."[1] written in the cited source or did you estimate this by some other means? --Eleassar my talk 15:29, 21 May 2015 (UTC)

Hi, I can't remember how I accessed the source for that change three years ago; I can't seem to find it electronically now, so I can't confirm that it appears there. It's simply been too long to remember (and I don't have a physical copy of the work). I may have also copied the reference from some other source that cited it. I also can't explain why I cited it as Dictionary of German Biography instead of Deutsche biographische Enzyklopädie. I'll remove the reference because I can't confirm it. Google Books gives me 2,280 hits for "Johann Weichard von Valvasor" and 22,400 for "Johann Weikhard von Valvasor", for one measure of the stats. Doremo (talk) 17:00, 21 May 2015 (UTC)

Joseph Velikonja[edit]

Hi. I title that last section in Joseph Velikonja Personal life in hopes that the year of his marriage, name of his wife, number of children and grandchildren might get included. Calling it Death seems grim, and unlike the other biographical articles I have read (admittedly a tiny share of all that are on Wikipedia). What I know is from a private posting from his daughter, so I cannot cite that. He spoke eight languages, which seems noteworthy, as well. Again, from his daughter's post, but I assume that might be written somewhere else about him. Great that you found a photo! He was an amazing man. to be sure. --Prairieplant (talk) 17:02, 27 May 2015 (UTC)

I agree. I'll move some more material to avoid the grim title. Doremo (talk) 17:09, 27 May 2015 (UTC)

Translations of the Slovene Wikipedia[edit]

Hi, Doremo. I'd like to warn you about the biographical articles from the Slovene Wikipedia in regard to the copyrights, because many of them are directly copied from Enciklopedija Slovenije, Slovenski biografski leksikon etc. Feel free to reuse the content to write articles, but please avoid directly translating them. It's a real shame that the plagiarism, contributed particularly by the user Grejo but also some other collaborators, is now spreading to other Wikipedias, because no-one has yet taken time to remove the directly copied text from the Slovene Wikipedia. --Eleassar my talk 06:41, 9 July 2015 (UTC)

Thank you. I've also noticed that much of the Slovene WP material is heavily plagiarized. I'll try to "shake up" the translations to make them less reliant on the text they were copied from. Doremo (talk) 07:06, 9 July 2015 (UTC)
That's appreciated. Thank you. --Eleassar my talk 08:03, 9 July 2015 (UTC)

Udine[edit]

Why exactly should there be any section about the Slovene name of Udine? Was it ever Slovenian or had anything to so with Slovenia?(i think not); Does it hold any importance, why? The German name is in fact much more substantial than the Slovenian; 1st Friulian / 2nd German / 3rd Italian / and 4th... maybe Slovenian; Please explain the importance of the Slovenian name Agilulf2007 (talk) 01:07, 12 July 2015 (UTC)

Udine is a historical Slovenian cultural center with a Slovenian minority. Doremo (talk) 03:16, 12 July 2015 (UTC)
