Oooops, in case you see a revert of your contribution on caveman article, I reverted accidentally one of your reverts to a vandal. I edited out the vandal's text by hand --Enric Naval (talk) 23:42, 15 February 2008 (UTC)

Executive[edit]

I was reverting vandalism, and that was part of the edits by the vandal. But an article about a coat in one episode of a sitcom doesn't seem a likely article. Corvus cornixtalk 17:57, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

I'm sure there are rules, but I don't know where it might be... wait ... Wikipedia:Disambiguation, maybe? In general, there's no point in doing a disambig link to a page that doesn't address the term you're linking, if there's a mention of The Executive in a Seinfeld episode page, then linking there might be okay.

AfD nomination of Pediophobia[edit]

I have nominated Pediophobia, an article you created, for deletion. I do not feel that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Pediophobia. Your opinions on the matter are welcome at that same discussion page; also, you are welcome to edit the article to address these concerns. Thank you for your time. ukexpat (talk) 01:16, 25 February 2008 (UTC)

Notability of Udo Prambs[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Udo Prambs requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article appears to be about a real person, organization (band, club, company, etc.), or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable. If this is the first page that you have created, then you should read the guide to writing your first article.

If you think that you can assert the notability of the subject, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the article's talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would confirm the subject's notability under Wikipedia guidelines.

For guidelines on specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for bands, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Corvus cornixtalk 05:43, 28 February 2008 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Udo Prambs[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

An editor has nominated Udo Prambs, an article on which you have worked or that you created, for deletion. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Udo Prambs (2nd nomination) and please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 19:00, 28 February 2008 (UTC)

Pediophobia[edit]

The article on fear of children was started in March 2007[1]. These two articles need to be combined, with the fear of dolls either taking its own article or being a subheading under the currently existing one. • Freechild'sup? 00:18, 4 September 2008 (UTC)

Yeah. After reviewing the deletion discussion[2] I would suggest this either be merged as I suggested, or leave fear of children to its own article and allow this article to solely cover the fear of dolls. • Freechild'sup? 00:21, 4 September 2008 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Thanks for putting the correct link to Von Steuben's name on the "Revolutionary War Drill Manual" page. I'm just getting started with Wikipedia, and I'm not very good at figuring out how to make links work properly. Also I noticed that you translate French. I've been trying to find someone who can translate these letters for quite some time. They are in Old French (so I'm told). Perhaps you could translate them for me. They were written to Washington by General Pulaski.

Casimir Pulaski —Preceding unsigned comment added by Rochlafayette (talkcontribs) 23:31, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

Beginning of loose translation of above:[edit]

Trenton, Feb. 27 1778. Sir, I am forwarding a letter from General Wayne, who has honored me with his order to join (him/you) at Mount Holly. I responded that that will not be possible, seeing that the cavalry remaining with me number too few for the task; in all I have no more than 18 men, the best of whom I have sent to the roads of Philadelphia to assure passage for the (beef?) transports destined for the army. I am satisfied, my General, to ask you if, being the youngest of the Brigadier Generals, I am subject to the individual orders of the others. This clarification is necessary for me; I know that in the other branches, the Commander of the cavalry is subject only to the Head of the Army. Therefore, on entering the Service, I believed I would be taking orders from you alone. If it is otherwise, it is important to me that I be so instructed.

I am, Your Excellence, with respect, your very humble and obedient servant, C. Pulaski Gn. of Cav. Eleven even (talk) 23:58, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

Second Letter: The group near Germenton which Your Excellence orders me to relieve should be replaced by the militia of that area. The Governor has (amused) me up to the last minute; now he needs to take the advice to follow the most recent resolution. The delay is not my doing, and if the relief needs to be provided by our Cavalry, then they will gather in force, seeing that the enemy has already made a move, and, knowing the area and our weakness, will find the means to be rid of us the Cavalry, which would discourage our side and strengthen theirs. I dare suggest to Your Excellence that it would be best to pull back our line some distance, and make other use of the militia on the various routes where they have been posted.... pull back their patrols (... ? ...) closer to the enemy's line, one could even add 3 or 5 mounted militiamen to each unit, that would not be difficult.... there are few militiamen that... their horses, and everyone prefers riding over marching.

I await, as always, Your Excellence's orders.

Third Letter: Burlington, New Jersey, midnight, February 28th 1778. Sir, I have the honor to report to you that having assembled all the Cavalry of the Blan Regiment, and of the detachment that I have had with me, I have found 44 Cavalry and 5 (non-commissioned officers) to serve, and even though there are scarcely 698 men, not in the best of condition, I marched with them toward the enemy, but since the road is (impassable)... I am forced to spend the night at Burlington. Tomorrow, I expect to reconnoiter the enemy, and I will act decisively. I will see General Wayne, and our men will mass together. I will neglect nothing which duty shall demand, but I shall not wait to be under your orders; I will serve the public interest (from my own bias) or (to my own detriment). After which I will task my General with diminishing Your embarrassment in my regard by relieving me of my charge, with which Congress has honored me at Your recommendation. I will send from here two warships upon Ancokes Creek to observe the approach of the Enemy who, at two o'clock pm, are on four ships in the area called Sene Merize. I repeat to Your Excellence the utmost necessity of tending to the needs of the Cavalry. It is lacking for everything. I would like to see Blan's Regiment equipped at least with (rockets or lancers), but as this is forbidden me, other measures will need to be taken, without leaving too much up to the Colonels, who will certainly be in no state to carry out their mission. It is not for myself that I speak; I do not expect to have the honor of being at the head of this Corps in the next campaign, but as I am ever a friend to the interest of the Americans, I am compelled to express my thoughts. Moreover, if after me this command should be given to Colonel Moilen, the entire Cavalry will be in the same condition as his regiment. Colonel Blan is an active officer; this duty would suit him, and Mr. Moilen could content himself with something else. I am saying what I believe to be necessary, and I have the honor of respectfully being Your Excellence's most humble and obedient servant, Casimir Pulaski.

That's roughly it. =] Eleven even (talk) 20:19, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

Thank you so much for translating!!![edit]

Thank you so much for translating the first letter. It makes sense to me now!!! I've wanted to know what those letters said for so long. I found them when I was studying the American Revolution. During the winter at Valley Forge, the troops were starving. So Washington sent General Wayne to meet General Pulaski in New Jersey, and forage for beef. I was never able to understand what Pulaski's letters said though. Until now. You are a superb translator!! Thank you!! I hope it wasn't too much of an inconvenience. I'm looking forward to knowing what the second letter says (whenever you have time).

ps:

I noticed that the letter didn't show the proper breaks (I'm still getting used to that on Wikipedia), so I made the proper breaks in the paragraphs now. Sorry for any inconvenience. Rochlafayette (talk) 05:15, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

Once again, thank you.[edit]

I'm sorry, it's taken me so long for me to respond. Then, I checked the page today and saw that rest of the letters were complete. Thank you so much for translating all of them. As I've said, this is very helpful. The translations are very well written too. It must take time and thought to do this. I'm sorry for any inconvenience it may have caused you. French was not Pulaski's first language, so that probably made it even harder to translate.

ps

I just heard on the news today Pulaski might be made an honorary US citizen after all these y ears. I don't know why it's taken so long. Benjamin Franklin recruited him to the army in France; he saved Washington's life at the Battle of Brandywine; and he ultimately died fighting for our America's Independence in 1779. I'd say he deserves to be an American citizen. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Rochlafayette (talkcontribs) 00:13, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

You're very welcome. It's good practice. Looking back over the translation, I saw fit to make a few changes today. Hope it's been helpful for you, and congratulations to honorary US citizen Pulaski! Eleven even (talk) 05:46, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

Oh. Oops. Wowest (talk) 18:25, 25 March 2009 (UTC)

Hmmm, it worked, but the yellow is too bright. How's this? ElEvEn EvENИ3v3 n3v3l3 19:08, 25 March 2009 (UTC)

Would you be willing to proofread.....[edit]

I've checked the article on Christine Adjobi that you translated and I founded no mistakes; anyway, I've added a sentence you forgot or didn't managed to translate. In any case, nice French :-). Cheers Monsieur W (talk) 09:20, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
