DYK for Lodewijk Bruckman[edit]

GA review: Daniel S. Schanck Observatory[edit]

I have addressed your concerns at the GA review for Daniel S. Schanck Observatory. Please review and let me know if there are further concerns.--ColonelHenry (talk) 22:51, 24 December 2013 (UTC)

Attempting to reach out to you so we can finish revising the article and conclude the GAN review. It has been 11 days since your last comments on the review. Please respond.--ColonelHenry (talk) 05:58, 27 December 2013 (UTC)

I didn't find time to look at it and I probably won't in the next few days. I'm sorry if this doesn't match you expectations. – Editør (talk) 11:56, 27 December 2013 (UTC)
  • I disagreed with you so I figured as much. Walking away to let it languish out of spite. That's rather low, dude. You probably shouldn't commit to a GA review when you can't/won't deliver your end of it. --ColonelHenry (talk) 05:36, 28 December 2013 (UTC)
We already established that we disagree on certain points. Resolving these disagreements takes more time than I anticipated. Once I realized I couldn't respond right away, I tried to notify you, because I didn't want to leave the impression that I was ignoring the review. After your last comments, however, I am not sure that you actually want a review. – Editør (talk) 17:28, 31 December 2013 (UTC)
  • Sorry, dude. I don't start a review and then disappear for two weeks. I don't commit to something then drop it. I finish what I start. I don't leave people hanging, and I don't expect others to leave me hanging. Aside from the courtesy of it, I consider that a bare minimum of fairness. Would you wait for two weeks? --ColonelHenry (talk) 18:07, 31 December 2013 (UTC)
I'm sorry that I wasn't more explicit about the time that it would take me. Though I don't understand why you are addressing me in this manner. Sure I would wait two weeks, especially in the holiday season I would understand these things can take a little longer. – Editør (talk) 19:55, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

Your GA nomination of Museum de Oude Wolden[edit]

The article Museum de Oude Wolden you nominated as a good article has been placed on hold Symbol wait.svg. The article is close to meeting the good article criteria, but there are some minor changes or clarifications needed to be addressed. If these are fixed within 7 days, the article will pass, otherwise it will fail. See Talk:Museum de Oude Wolden for things which need to be addressed.

Wikilinking[edit]

Hi, and thanks for your work on the English Wikipedia. Just a short note to point out that we don’t normally link:

  • dates
  • years
  • commonly known geographical terms (including well-known country-names), and
  • common terms you’d look up in a dictionary (unless significantly technical).

Thanks and my best wishes.

Tony (talk) 07:55, 7 January 2014 (UTC)

If you mean that overlinking should be avoided, I agree with you. But I don't think I've linked any dates or years, and about the geographical names and commons terms, I think it is often a matter of preference. – Editør (talk) 21:08, 7 January 2014 (UTC)
Do relink less common items if you really think it improves things. I've responded on my talk page more fully. Thx. Tony (talk) 01:47, 13 January 2014 (UTC)

Fix attempt[edit]

Hi, I noticed you tried to fix something on Template:Dutch municipality population density‎. What was the problem and is it fixed now? CRwikiCA talk 14:29, 28 January 2014 (UTC)

Yes it is fixed now, thanks. The output of the template couldn't be used as input for {{convert}}, so I've removed some newlines/whitespace and now the conversion works properly. I hope it didn't cause any new problems elsewhere. – Editør (talk) 17:52, 29 January 2014 (UTC)
I don't see, or expect, any problems, so it should be fine. I was just wondering what the problem was. CRwikiCA talk 22:29, 29 January 2014 (UTC)

You have a point about the size of the map in the Bellingwedde article, it is too bad the smaller map isn't available in a svg version.

Station ownership[edit]

Railway stations in The Netherlands that are owned and maintained by NS Stations (which you recently created), should say that under the parameter {{{owned}}} and have {{{style}}} set as {{NS style}}. I think you are confusing train operations with stations and have created a false {{Arriva style}}. It appears to me that all of those stations have white on blue signage on the platforms rather than the train colors you have used. Am I correct in thinking that Arriva does not actually own the stations? Secondarywaltz (talk) 18:00, 6 January 2015 (UTC)

I think you are right, the railway stations owned by NS Stations should use the colors of NS in their infobox. However, I was reluctant to change the colors back as boldly as I changed them the first time, before figuring out who owns what exactly at the railway stations. – Editør (talk) 18:25, 6 January 2015 (UTC)
If Arriva does not own any stations, then {{Arriva style}} could be redirected to {{NS style}}. That would instantly change the display. Secondarywaltz (talk) 18:44, 6 January 2015 (UTC)
At the Winschoten railway station for instance, the station building is owned by NS Stations, the tracks by ProRail, and the roofed bus station by Arriva, but I'm not sure those are all related owners. In any case, I think your suggestion of the redirect is a good idea and make the edits right away. – Editør (talk) 18:56, 6 January 2015 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Juliëtte Wytsman[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 Juliëtte Wytsman 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 a person or group of people, 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 read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here. - McMatter (talk)/(contrib) 22:42, 15 February 2015 (UTC)

Dates[edit]

Please don't alter the format of the entries on the date pages as you have done here. The explicit – is intentional and is part of the article template specified at WP:DAYS. -- Mufka (u) (t) (c) 15:03, 17 February 2015 (UTC)

I did use the "proper dashes", but changing the code from – to – is fine by me. – Editør (talk) 15:15, 17 February 2015 (UTC)

1st duke of buckingham[edit]

Your exchange of images appeared to me editorially insensitive and so I have reversed it. The pearl-studded portrait needs to be closer to the mention of it in the text. Other images in the article are also placed near discussion of them or of the events they commemorate. It would have been better if you had read the article first. Mzilikazi1939 (talk) 14:24, 27 February 2015 (UTC)

I don't really see a problem, the portrait is not mentioned in the section it accompanied (and now again accompanies). If there is a good reason for using it there, maybe a brief explanation can be added to the image's caption? I think there should be a portrait in the infobox instead of the coat of arms. Are there any alternative portraits that could be used here? – Editør (talk) 17:22, 27 February 2015 (UTC)
@Mzilikazi1939: – Editør (talk) 14:40, 5 March 2015 (UTC)

Why do you 'think there should be a portrait in the infobox' when there are plenty in the body of the text? Are there WP guidelines on this or is it pure POV? There are certainly many more portraits of Buckingham in Wikimedia, if you can justify their use by anything other than personal preference. The heraldic quarterings of his coat of arms, for those who can interpret them, play a vital part in understanding his aristocratic role and arguably belong where they have been placed. What is really needed is an explanation somewhere of what they mean. Mzilikazi1939 (talk) 23:18, 5 March 2015 (UTC)

A portrait in the infobox serves the purpose of visual identification of the person. A coat of arms doesn't serve this purpose as well (if it does at all), even though it can an informative illustration for the article on different places. – Editør (talk) 10:01, 6 March 2015 (UTC)

Lulu Wang[edit]

No infobox wars please. Thank you. Drmies (talk) 14:40, 9 March 2015 (UTC)

Seems like there isn't any. – Editør (talk) 14:42, 9 March 2015 (UTC)
  • Well, I take some issue with your rather curt removal of an otherwise pretty useless infobox. Drmies (talk) 15:32, 9 March 2015 (UTC)
I have added the infobox for Lulu Wang, not removed it. If you see a problem with it, please discuss this further at the article's talk page. – Editør (talk) 16:14, 9 March 2015 (UTC)
I'm afraid you have that backwards: after your change was reverted, it was for you to obtain consensus for the addition. Now that I see the article creator, Drmies, also sees it as unhelpful on this particular article, it's plain that there is no consensus to add it, so I have removed it again. I saw you making other changes to the article that were helpful, but please do not impose infoboxes just because you like them and then demand others discuss before reverting that particular change. ArbCom has ruled them strictly optional. Yngvadottir (talk) 16:39, 9 March 2015 (UTC)
This user talk page is not the place to find consensus on this issue. Please move this discussion to Talk:Lulu Wang#Infobox. – Editør (talk) 16:44, 9 March 2015 (UTC)
May I offer a small piece of advice, please? In my experience your case will always be damaged if you re-revert when your edit has been reverted. It's far better at that point to open the talk page discussion and lay out your reasons. You may also wish to alert any Wikiprojects that are interested in the subject, and Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Infoboxes in these sort of disputes. If others agree with you, they'll restore your edit: there's never any advantage in doing so yourself. Cheers --RexxS (talk) 19:50, 9 March 2015 (UTC)
I'm sorry to be butting in again, but if you want to bring more eyes to bear on a discussion, you have to alert others in a way that will not give the appearance of distorting the consensus on the discussion page. I mean you mustn't only notify editors whom you expect to be sympathetic to your view; that's why I suggested alerting multiple Wikiprojects above, as that will usually attract an representative range of editors to lend weight to the discussion without unduly favouring one side. I hope that helps in future. Cheers --RexxS (talk) 23:48, 9 March 2015 (UTC)

EU Survey Dutch[edit]

Hello again, so I found this EU survey but I don't think it is the one Ethnologue is referring to, but I do think it is useful.

I removed your "citation needed" templates from The Holland Times, as all you want citation for can simply be read in the paper, and there's already a link to a page that lets you read old editions online. Also, could you further describe the notability issue? It is the only English-language, national newspaper in the Netherlands, that makes it pretty notable to me. PPP (talk) 15:22, 10 June 2015 (UTC)

Please read my comments on the article's talk page and comment there if you have any questions. – Editør (talk) 16:59, 10 June 2015 (UTC)

List of Prime Ministers of Queen Juliana[edit]

You've been around long enough to know that cutting-and-pasting material robs contributors of the credit they're due for their work. Please sort it out. WP:RIA Bazj (talk) 21:48, 15 August 2015 (UTC)

Please explain what you want me to sort out. – Editør (talk) 07:44, 16 August 2015 (UTC)
I've added two split templates, guessing that is what you meant, which you could have just said in the first place. – Editør (talk) 08:28, 16 August 2015 (UTC)
I'm sorry if following the link I left to the section "Repairing insufficient attribution" and reading 1 short paragraph of text was so difficult for you. Bazj (talk) 10:49, 16 August 2015 (UTC)

Reply[edit]

I explained, each one, at the article's talk page.

Before you posted to my user talk page, could you please check, and discuss, at the article's talk page, about the article ?

Thank you,

A barnstar for you![edit]

Thank you for the pleasant manner in which you comported yourself during discussion on the talk page of The Truth According to Wikipedia !!

Your polite and professional interactions are most appreciated.

Thank you ! — Cirt (talk) 19:46, 25 October 2015 (UTC)

Thanks! – Editør (talk)
You're most welcome, — Cirt (talk) 19:57, 25 October 2015 (UTC)

Please, let's avoid violations of No Original Research[edit]

I'd very much rather avoid violations of No Original Research.

Your own personal POV at The Truth According to Wikipedia is interesting, but irrelevant.

I'd very much like to keep reliance on secondary sources for this article, okay?

Thank you, for taking the time to think about this, and your understanding in this matter to not violate NO Original Research,

Cirt (talk) 18:14, 31 October 2015 (UTC)

What are you referring to? – Editør (talk) 20:46, 1 November 2015 (UTC)
Let's both avoid "presume" things, on article talk pages, as you put it, in your words. Instead, let's suggest things backed up to sources, or not at all. Thank you, — Cirt (talk) 02:35, 2 November 2015 (UTC)
Your vague accusations don't make any sense. – Editør (talk) 11:19, 2 November 2015 (UTC)
When you use the word "presume", without backing up your complaints to any sources and fail to present any sources to back up your complaints -- that is what is vague. You later did back up your claims with cited sources, and that is most appreciated, so that particular complaint is now done and Yes check.svg Done and done. Hopefully we can successfully address all of your repeated complaints and move on forwards from here and continue to the future. — Cirt (talk) 22:55, 2 November 2015 (UTC)
Firstly, you are twisting things, because you claimed a violation of NOR before that edit. Secondly, I did link the Nederlandse Publieke Omroep article as a reference. In the artice you can read that the NPO uses the three channels NPO 1, NPO 2, and NPO 3 (which were called Nederland 1, Nederland 2, and Nederland 3 in 2008). Your accusations are unfounded. – Editør (talk) 23:21, 2 November 2015 (UTC)
In the future, please, I ask of you, to avoid "presume" things, before you back them up with sources. Backing them up with sources is the way to go here, on the talk page and in the article space. Thank you for taking some time to think this over and modify your behavior accordingly. — Cirt (talk) 00:04, 3 November 2015 (UTC)

A cupcake for you![edit]

Choco-Nut Bake with Meringue Top cropped.jpg I've been feeling a bit under the weather the past 24-hours with a bit of a stomach bug.

I'm sorry if my tone recently came off as weird, was suffering from 10/10 pain all day and finally feeling a bit better.

Thanks for your helpful participation, it would be appreciated certainly if we could both focus the future discussion on sources and what sources say, rather than our personal opinions, hopefully that's agreeable to you. :) — Cirt (talk) 03:57, 1 November 2015 (UTC)

Revisiting past issues[edit]

Please stop revisiting past issues that we had already resolved.

Your disapproval that a "documentary" is a form of "film" is just mind-boggling.

Despite this, I went through and replaced instances of the word "film" with the word "documentary".

This issue was then resolved.

Thank you,

Cirt (talk) 00:26, 3 November 2015 (UTC)

The fact that you have added "done" to a discussion doesn't mean an issue was resolved. You are removing discussions from Talk:The Truth According to Wikipedia and User talk:Cirt which makes discussion and communication hard if not impossible. I would like to suggest that you take some distance and revisit the issues at a later time. – Editør (talk) 00:34, 3 November 2015 (UTC)
You are repeatedly revisiting past issues that were resolved to a compromise between both parties. Can you agree that it is factually accurate that I went and removed all instances of the word "Film" and replaced them with the word "Documentary" ??? I would like to suggest that you take some distance and revisit the issues at a later time. — Cirt (talk) 01:42, 3 November 2015 (UTC)
And it appears you are ignoring my question, above. — Cirt (talk) 12:46, 3 November 2015 (UTC)

Please stop your continued postings reversing your prior positions at Talk:The Truth According to Wikipedia - it is confusing and stagnates progress[edit]

  1. Please stop your continued postings reversing your prior positions at Talk:The Truth According to Wikipedia - it is confusing and stagnates progress.
  2. I have now shown in several DIFFs where you previously agreed to compromises and my good-faith edits -- only to later go back and reverse yourself and say you are now not fine with them.
  3. I removed all instances of word "film", and replaced them all with word "documentary". You previously said you were fine with this and agreed this was an effective compromise, at DIFF. Now, you appear to be reversing yourself, yet again, at DIFF.
  4. You previously agreed that non-notable people should not be listed, per DIFF. Now, you appear to be reversing yourself, yet again, at DIFF.
  5. It now is clear to me that your participation on the talk page appears to have an added motivation of getting me to make good-faith compromises, only to then go back on your word and make new claims that violate your own prior established agreement with these compromises.
  6. Therefore, I respectfully ask you to disengage, back away, and stop participation in this discussion about this article, as you clearly have a lack of ability to engage in good-faith compromises when outreaches are made, as I have done, repeatedly, and you then agreed to, repeatedly, only to reverse yourself and go back on your word.

Thank you for agreeing to step away from your repeated reversals and going back on your word in this matter, it's most appreciated,

Cirt (talk) 12:45, 3 November 2015 (UTC)

I do no appreciate your continuous accusations, reversions, mentions, pings, premature archiving of talk pages, and complete removals of user talk page discussions. I recommend you to stop taking discussions about facts in articles personal. And I urge you to stop contacting me or posting again on my user talk page. – Editør (talk) 13:09, 3 November 2015 (UTC)
Fine. Don't post to my user talk page either. And STOP going back on your word from prior agreements. Thanks !!! — Cirt (talk) 13:18, 3 November 2015 (UTC)

Tone[edit]

I have responded to the matters of fact on the Escher talk page, but I wanted to mention to you here that the tone of your message seems to me needlessly aggressive and uncollegiate. I have worked hard to bring the article up to a good standard, and it is simply unhelpful to a discussion, and in breach of the Wikipedia policy on civility, to raise accusations on talk pages. I had in fact noticed something of the sort before, but this instance was so clear that I could not overlook it. It appears from the comments by User:Cirt above that this is not the first time you have behaved in this way. I would be grateful if you could assume good faith from now on, if you wish to take part constructively. With many thanks, Chiswick Chap (talk) 13:29, 17 November 2015 (UTC)

Instead of changing anything in the article, I merely asked questions. You may not like the questions or the issues addressed by them, but I don't see how they are in any way "aggressive and uncollegiate". – Editør (talk) 14:07, 17 November 2015 (UTC)
Let me just say, then, as gently as possible, that if a statement is made that tends to upset other people, it is the other people, not the person who made the statement, who can best judge whether they found its tone appropriate or not. All the best, Chiswick Chap (talk) 14:25, 17 November 2015 (UTC)

Voicing assimilation in Dutch IPA transcriptions[edit]

Please do not remove voicing assimilations from the Dutch IPA transcriptions. The transcription was correct, the pronunciation [ˈmɑks vɑn] is impossible in connected speech if you're saying these words as if they were one word (unless you're extremely overpronouncing it). I suggest that you read this excellent free ebook on Dutch phonetics. Martin sv 85 (talk) 03:52, 11 March 2016 (UTC)

Also, don't forget that [ɣ] can't appear in the word-final position (see [1]) unless a voiced plosive starts the next word (the next word that is pronounced without a pause between it and the word ending in [ɣ]). Martin sv 85 (talk) 03:59, 11 March 2016 (UTC)

Hello. Your transcription on Blauwestad was incorrect; no Dutch word can end in [d] in isolation - see Final-obstruent devoicing. Mr KEBAB (talk) 13:14, 17 May 2016 (UTC)

The same applies to your transcription on Douwe Bob. Mr KEBAB (talk) 13:19, 17 May 2016 (UTC)

Also, don't forget to include the stress mark in each transcription of words that contain more than one syllable. Mr KEBAB (talk) 14:14, 19 May 2016 (UTC)

You don't need to send me a message each time you make a correction. – Editør (talk) 15:17, 19 May 2016 (UTC)
Alright, just trying to help. Mr KEBAB (talk) 15:44, 19 May 2016 (UTC)

2016 Amstel Gold Race[edit]

Just for your information, per WP:NOPIPE, pretty much this whole edit was unnecessary rather than "fixes". Links to redirects are not broken. Relentlessly (talk) 12:37, 20 April 2016 (UTC)

I've changed two links, the others seem alright to me. – Editør (talk) 12:46, 20 April 2016 (UTC)
They're fine, it's just unnecessary! (Personally, I have CSS styling that alerts me when I have links to redirects, so I always deal with any that matter.) Relentlessly (talk) 12:52, 20 April 2016 (UTC)

DYK for Winschoten railway station[edit]

Updated DYK query.svg On 23 May 2016, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Winschoten railway station, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that during World War II, approximately 500 Jews were transported from the Winschoten railway station via the Westerbork transit camp to Nazi concentration camps, where most of them were killed? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Winschoten railway station. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Winschoten railway station), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.
