sl:Dolinski most[edit]

Is there an English name of it? Dol Bridge, Dol Viadukt, Jelenov?Xx234 (talk) 09:47, 3 February 2015 (UTC) Your Leave me a message doesn't work.Xx234 (talk) 09:48, 3 February 2015 (UTC)

The Registry of Heritage uses the name 'Jelenov most', which would be 'Deer Bridge' in English. Thanks for the typo. --Eleassar my talk 15:33, 3 February 2015 (UTC)

Jelenov Most[edit]

Xx234 (talk) 11:05, 5 February 2015 (UTC)

I've looked at various resources on this but haven't come up with anything definitive. It is unlikely that Dolinski most is named after Dol pri Borovnici (for which the adjective should be dolski, dolški, dolanski, or doljanski), but instead means 'Valley Bridge', referring to the small valley that it spans (the current article incorrectly states that it is located in Dol pri Borovnici). The German name Hirschthaler viadukt also indicates that it is named after the valley it spans, called (in German) Hirschthal (literally, 'Deer Valley'); I have not found a map or reliable source with a Slovene name for the valley spanned by the viaduct, although Jelenova dolina (literally, 'Deer Valley') is found here. All of this would indicate that the viaduct is named after a valley that was named after deer; thus, Valley Bridge (Dolinski most), Deer Valley Viaduct (Hirschthaler viadukt), and Deer Bridge (Jelenov most). It is also somewhat possible that Jelen is a surname, in which case it would not be translated—that is, Jelen Bridge (Jelenov most). Given that the Slovene WP page is at Dolinski most, I would suggest moving the English WP page to the corresponding Valley Bridge with a lede like this: "The Valley Bridge (Slovene: Dolinski most, also Jelenov viadukt 'Deer Viaduct'; German: Hirschthaler viadukt 'Deer Valley Viaduct') is a railroad viaduct in Borovnica." Doremo (talk) 18:34, 5 February 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for the input. The Slovene WP is not a reliable source, so there's no particular reason to follow it. The original name was the German 'Hirschthaler', therefore it does not derive from the surname 'Jelen'; also the name 'Jelenski viadukt' appears on web (e.g. [1]). "Deer Valley Viaduct" probably matches the original the closest. --Eleassar my talk 21:16, 5 February 2015 (UTC)
In that case a suitable lede would be: "The Deer Valley Viaduct (Slovene: Jelenov viadukt, also Jelenski viadukt or Dolinski most; German: Hirschthaler viadukt) is a railroad viaduct in Borovnica." The name Hirschthal is well attested in written sources for the valley (e.g., here); it would be good if a Slovene name for the valley could be found in a published source.

Pomoč pri reviziji članka Tanja Ribič[edit]

Pozdravljen ! Prosim te za pomoč pri reviziji članka o Tanji Ribič. Nekdo ga je predlagal za izbris, morda lahko tam komentiraš v zvezi s tem in dodatno posodobiš članek. Ne vem kje se nahaja primeren slovenski portal za objavljanje člankov za izbris o slovenskih ljudeh, če nekdo predlaga tak vnos ? Ker je o Tanji le malo objavljenega na spletu v Angleškem jeziku, pri nas pa vemo, da je prepoznavna igralka in pevka, me zanima kako se v takem primeru izogniti izbrisu. Hvala za pomoč in lep pozdrav ! Prunk (talk) 20:26, 8 February 2015 (UTC)

Image use[edit]

I would like to ask permission to use a photo of yours in an upcoming publication. It is an aerial view from the castle of Plecnik's University Library. It shows, form high up, the context and the small square reaching out from one corner of the building. I tis available on the web, where I have seen it.

I am an American architectural academic and am in the final stages of completing a book-length manuscript on German façade design over 400 years, from 1550 to 1950. It will be published in English in 2015 by Ashgate Press in London. The print run would be small, likely about 800--mostly sold to research libraries. The book will treat over 100 German facades, and contain about 240 images in total. The study also considers some buildings in German-speaking Switzerland and Austria. From Slovenia, I will mention this building.

May I use your image in this publication?

My name is Randall Ott, and I am Dean of the School of Architecture and Planning at Catholic University in Washington DC. I can be reached at my e-mail: — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:19, 17 February 2015 (UTC)

Hi, I'm not sure which image you're actually discussing. Could you please provide a link to it? Thank you. Best, --Eleassar my talk 10:37, 28 February 2015 (UTC)


Somebody tried speedying this. Can you expand/source?♦ Dr. Blofeld 14:00, 30 March 2015 (UTC)

Persistent disruption in Slovenia-related and other articles[edit]

Because you have dealt with this person in the past year, I wanted to let you know about the newly created case page at Wikipedia:Long-term abuse/Velenje vandal.

You protected the Trbovlje article against disruption from this person, and you have dealt with him on your talk page. Others who have tangled with him include Doremo, Elockid, Nishidani, Alf.laylah.wa.laylah, Synthwave.94, Contributor321, Mlpearc, Tenebrae, Swarm, EnDaLeCoMpLeX, GermanJoe, DoRD, Primecoordinator, Logical Fuzz, and Sergecross73. If you take action against him in the future, you can link to this LTA case page. Binksternet (talk) 20:12, 3 April 2015 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for May 1[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited The Carniolan Bee, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Slovene (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.

Template:Commons and category-inline[edit]

Hello! I see that you created the above template. I am tracking the contributions of a user who seems to add nonsense to articles, often including the word "moon". One of those contributions was this. I suspect it should be reverted but I don't know enough about templates to be sure. Would you please take a look at it? Thanks. --MelanieN (talk) 16:38, 10 May 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for having spotted this. The change was utter nonsense, I've therefore removed the new code. --Eleassar my talk 10:05, 12 May 2015 (UTC)

WikiProject Anatomy Newsletter #4[edit]

WikiProject Anatomy Newsletter #4

Released: 1 July, 2015
Editor: Tom (LT)

Hello WikiProject Anatomy participant! This is the fourth update, documenting what's going on in WikiProject Anatomy, news, current projects and other items of interest. We've had a quiet time over the last half-year or so, so I've slowed down the release of this newsletter and will probably release the next one around the end of the year. If you'd like to provide some feedback, if you think I've missed something, or don't wish to receive this again, please leave a note on my talkpage or remove your name from the mailing list

What's new
What's going on
The vermiform appendix, seen in the bottom left and the cause of much anguish when inflammed, stirs up an interesting discussion.
  • Should Vermiform appendix be retitled to its more common name (Appendix)? The discussion continues!
  • A large number of "back end" changes are made, and integration with Wikidata continues -- see the focus for more.
  • Our set of cranial nerve-related articles receive a review by a subject expert
How can I contribute?
Our articles on the 13 12 cranial nerves receive a review from a subject expert
Issue focus - technical changes

This issue was originally going to focus on how far we've come as a project. However, that encouraging news can wait until next issue, as there are simply too many changes going on at the "back end" of our project not to write about. What do I mean by "back end"? I mean changes that are not necessarily visible to readers, but may have a significant impact on the way we edit or on future edits.


A number of visible changes have been made to our templates. Firstly, the way our templates have been linked together has changed. Previously, this was a small bar with single-letter links. This has been replaced by a light-coloured box contained within all our templates with fully-worded links, which provides links to relevant anatomy and medical templates. This should make life a lot easier, particularly for students and other readers who are struggling with the vastness of anatomical systems and their related diseases and treatments.

As part of this, almost all our templates have been reviewed and cleaned up. The previously confusing colour scheme has been removed and colour standardised. The titles have been simplified. References to "identifiers" in the titles of navigation boxes (such as Gray's Anatomy and Terminologia Anatomica numbers) have been removed. Where possible, the wiki-code of templates has been updated to give a cleaner, more standardised, format that is hopefully more friendly to new editors. The cleanup continues , please feel free to contribute or propose templates which need attention.

Anatomy infobox

Most of our articles have an infobox. Previously, there were 11 separate infoboxes for different fields, such as muscles, nerves and embryology. These have been united so that at the "back end", every template will take formatting directly from the main anatomy infobox -- however at the "front end", there is little difference for readers. This will make future changes much easier -- including adding new fields, formatting, and reordering the contents. Several changes have already been made: infoboxes now link to a relevant anatomical terminology article; contents are now divided into 'Identifiers' and 'Details' headings, making it easier to grasp content for new readers; and new fields have been added, including Greek and UBERON, with several more under discussion.

External links

An editor has reviewed all our template-based external links. These are the links that often fill the "External links" category, and sometimes used as citations. At least thirty different links sets, with the number of links stretching into the thousands, have been fixed, and if not functioning, deleted. A number of non-functioning dead links (with no archived websites available), and one or two others, have been deleted. This helps keep our 'external links' section relevant and functioning for those readers who want extra information about articles.


Perhaps our most important change has been integration with Wikidata. This is because of both its current uses and potential future uses. Wikidata is a service related to Wikipedia focusing on storing information. Data relating to a Wikipedia item (such as a muscle or bone, or even a template) can have related "structured" infomation stored systematically alongside it. For example, a muscle can have information about its embryological origin, nerve supply, and the relevant sections of Terminologica Anatomica (TA) stored alongside it. Much information that was stored within articles on infoboxes is now stored on Wikidata, including the TA, TH, and TE fields. An immediate benefit is that Wikipedias in every language will (as they update their own infoboxes, be able to automatically include this information. New data can be entered in a much easier format, and data can be batch entered by bots making future updates much easier Future uses include data visualisation. I personally am looking forward to the day when a reader can view a wikidata-based "tree", clicking mesoderm and seeing all of the derived structures, then selecting the intermediate mesoderm, then Pronephric duct, mesonephric duct and vas deferens. The possibilities of using Wikidata for data visualisation are really quite encouraging!

Our next issue will focus on how far WikiProject Anatomy has come in the past 2 years.

Letalnica bratov Gorišek[edit]

This is full and official name of the hill. It would be different if hill wouldn't have any official name. Anyway it doesn't make any sense, it's just literal translation and this name is not established at all. Everyone around Europe knows it as Letalnica and all wikipedias has letalnica in their title. You can't just change name. Janne Ahonen is Janne Ahonen and nothing else. Goldeberger is Goldberger not Goldhill. Any check other hills. Established in their original languages on all wikipedias. For example: Vogtlandarena, Große Olympiaschanze, Gross-Titlis-Schanze, Wielka Krokiew, Vikersundbakken etc. Just leave the title they way it is. Planica is well known. It's perfectly fine. Thanks.
