## Article Licensing

To allow us to track those users who muli-license their contributions, many users copy and paste the "{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}" template into their user page, but there are other options at Template messages/User namespace. The following examples could also copied and pasted into your user page:

Option 1
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions, with the exception of my user pages, as described below:

OR

Option 2
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions to any [[U.S. state]], county, or city article as described below:

Or if you wanted to place your work into the public domain, you could replace "{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}" with "{{MultiLicensePD}}". If you only prefer using the GFDL, I would like to know that too. Please let me know what you think at my talk page. It's important to know either way so no one keeps asking. -- Ram-Man (comment| talk)

## Order of Soviet COAs and flags

Hi Explendido,

Could you explain more about the reason why ("Constitutional order") you have changed the display order of the coats of arms and flags of Soviet Union?

Saudações do Brasil,

--MaGioZal 4 July 2005 15:19 (UTC)

Claro que posso :-) It's the order by which the republics were mentioned in the Soviet Constitution, and in many official Soviet documents. It was quite frequent to mention the republics in that order. See List of Soviet Republics. --Explendido Rocha 4 July 2005 15:36 (UTC)

## Blanking

Hello, Explendido Rocha. Please stop blanking Jose Castro. I understand you have strong opinions on this page. However, it's merely a redirect page, and the central article is not located under 'Jose Castro'. If someone without your knowledge on the topic were to research information on José Ribeiro e Castro, there is a chance that he or she would type in 'Jose Castro' and omit the remainder of his name. Rather than shoving that user with an existing page with no content (as blanking a page does not delete it), it would be better to be redirected to the correct page. Thanks, Sango123 July 5, 2005 18:13 (UTC)

## Cyrillic spelling

Please explain why you think Cyrillic names are so essential for articles on non-Russian towns? Should we flood all articles on Polish towns with Cyrillic spellings? And the articles on Indonesian towns with Japanese spellings? --Ghirlandajo 13:59, 18 July 2005 (UTC)

Cyrillic is essential to many non-Russian towns - like those in the Ukraine and Belarus'. It is specially important for Tartu, since it isn't obvious what the Russian spelling of Yuryev is; besides, I don't see the point of mentioning its German name but not the Swedish, neither of presenting its former Russian names but not mentioning the current one. --Explendido Rocha 16:49, 18 July 2005 (UTC)

## Correio da Manhã

I think that the translation for Correio da Manhã should be Early Mail. I didn't want to change it before talking to you, though.

## Demographics of Yugoslavia

Hi Explendido Rocha,

It appears you are responsible for entering the first tables of demographics/population/area of the former Yugoslavia, back in 2005 (19 Sep 2005, 14:52). Your change (from the history page) is this link. Can you tell me the source of your data? Browsing, I just noticed that the numbers don't add up, and corrected % area of Serbia to 35.2% since 88,361km Serbia area divided by 250,790km total area is 35.2% not (the previous) 33.2%. And, since Serbia area is listed also in parts (Serbia proper, Vojvodina and Kosovo), adding these three confirms (well, is consistent with) the area number in km being right. However, I just noticed a further problem -- that the areas do not add up to the 250,790km total area of the country, but rather to closer to 255,000km (which incidentally is reported in other places as the area). At this point I don't want to make changes until actually finding the original source of the data as there appears to be more going on than just one typographical error.

Could you let me know where you got the data that you posted? I don't have a wikipedia account, but you can respond on your page here and I'll check back.

Regards,

# Convite

Olá Explendido Rocha! Não quererás participar nas discussões em curso em Talk:Timeline of the Muslim Occupation of Spain e Talk:Roman Spain? A questão que aí se coloca, como poderás ver, é a da utilização da palavra "Spain", com todo o que isso implica, para designar toda a Península Ibérica em qualquer momento da sua história. Participa como te aprover! The Ogre 11:13, 19 August 2005 (UTC)

# Soviet anthems

I saw that you changed alphabetic order of Template:Anthems_of_the_Soviet_Republics to some other. I would like to change it back because it's hard to find states the way you left it and it's unclear why you changed the order. Cheers! Renata3 18:42, 26 August 2005 (UTC)

Hey, thank for lithuanian language :) You need some practise, but the babel list is seriously impressive! Anyway, about the anthems... I think for a person who is not familar with constitutional or any other order it's confusing. I am from Soviet Union myself (as you know ;)) and still don't know the order. So what to say about some American or Zimbabwian who just heard that such a thing as the Soviet Union existed? Alphabet - universal and most natural way. Don't you agree? :) Renata3 02:29, 27 August 2005 (UTC)

I don't think that is such a big matter so to have a public vote. I guess you can leave it as is, just provide explanations why it's ordered like this. Because now it's confusing... Renata3 15:14, 27 August 2005 (UTC)

# Vasco da Gama

Hello, since you are interested in Lithuania so I thought hat you might support our letter to Centre for Cartography, Vilnius University. We are asking to release their maps found at www.balticdata.info under GFDL licence so they could be used in articles about Lithuania. So far we got 14 people to "sign" it. The draft in very very rough English is available at user:Renata3/letter. If you decide to support it, I'll need just your first and last names together with your user name. You can leave it on my talk page or send it via email: just attact @gmail.com to my user name. Renata3 21:54, 3 September 2005 (UTC)

## Film-studio-stub

I noticed this new stub template you created. Normally new stubs are proposed and discussed at Wikipedia:WikiProject Stub sorting/Proposals, to ensure that there's enough stub articles (usually 60-100), and that it fits with the current hierarchy. Also, you didn't create the category the template links to...

The template is currently listed at Wikipedia:WikiProject Stub sorting/Discoveries, if you wish to comment. --Mairi 04:29, 29 September 2005 (UTC)

## O.S.

Aha ... I've kinda figured out how to use it, but thanks anyway :) Question, though: why you put the O.S. date in reverse (DD/MM)? Just curious. --Barbatus 09:23, 13 October 2005 (UTC)

• Occasionally, I add the O.S. date to an article which only has a N.S. date - and then I use the way I'm used to, which is DD/MM - so N.S. may appear MM/DD and O.S. DD/MM. I generally don't pay to much attention to that. --Explendido Rocha 09:36, 13 October 2005 (UTC)
• I see ... so you don't mind if I reverse it back, for consistency's sake? ... Thank you again for the useful template. I wander what other cool thingies you have in store? --Barbatus 10:24, 13 October 2005 (UTC)
• I personally prefer DD/MM/YY rather than MM/DD/YY, as suggested by an English lady who teaches translation. But I don't care that much. --Explendido Rocha 10:27, 13 October 2005 (UTC)
• As I was born and raised in Europe, it is my preference, too. Ten years in the States have taken their toll ... Anyhow, it is not about which way is better, but rather a matter of consistency: not mixing both forms in the same date. --Barbatus 11:48, 13 October 2005 (UTC)

## Official names of the USSR

Hello Explendido Rocha, I would like to suggest you add some informations about the reason of the table dividing in Official names of the USSR article (separating SSR from ASSR languages [1]). It will prevent from further mistakes done by other Wikipedians and it could be also useful informative note :).

## Currency box

Hi, I noticed that you have created a currency box template. I've always wanted to do that, but it was suspended for much difficulty. Please take a look at Wikipedia:WikiProject_Numismatics/Sandbox. I just looked at it again, and I think it would be better if the exchange rate is removed from the info box, as it is

## Ginásio Clube Alcobaça

I've added the "{{prod}}" template to the article Ginásio Clube Alcobaça, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but I don't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and I've explained why in the deletion notice (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). Please either work to improve the article if the topic is worthy of inclusion in Wikipedia, or, if you disagree with the notice, discuss the issues at Talk:Ginásio Clube Alcobaça. You may remove the deletion notice, and the article will not be deleted, but note that it may still be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached, or if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria.

# Languages of the Soviet Union

Hello. You have recently reverted a block of information about use of Cyrillic script in former Soviet republics because of what seemed a factual problem. The example given in that block was perhaps inappropriate (it seemed to suggest that Baltic countries actively used Cyrillic script before 1991, though that wasn't the intention), but rather than blanking the entire area, I'd appreciate if next time you'll just correct the single factual problem you have an issue with, and leave the other information intact. In any case, I'd suggest not marking such an edit as minor. Thanks. IgorSF 05:08, 16 December 2006 (UTC)

My objection is actually a bit larger: the article is languages of the Soviet Union, not languages of the post-Soviet states, and your additions confuse a already somewhat confusing line. The point is that those three languages can be considered to be artificially created in order to isolate those populations from the "mother" language, and it was helped by the existence of a separate alphabet. Considerations of what happened afterwards belong rather articles about the individual countries or languages. IMHO. --Explendido Rocha 09:37, 16 December 2006 (UTC)

## Paulo Gammaron Felipe

Quite right. No Google hits either. And it was created by a vandal. I see no need to AGF, but didn't want to speedy in case it's genuine. So I've prodded. --Dweller 15:58, 23 January 2007 (UTC)

## Portuguese notables

Hi, since you are Portuguese, could you help fill in some of the blanks as to who these people might be at List of notable Scouts#List of notable Scouts in Portugal? It's the only country where several are listed routinely without any explanation of who they are. I have tried to fill in where I can. Thanks! Chris 11:33, 4 February 2007 (UTC)

The list comes from here [3], but those without description are virtually unknown figures - I personally never heard of them. --Explendido Rocha 15:16, 4 February 2007 (UTC)

## Edit to feta

Thanks for your edit to the feta article. A couple of questions. You are using angle brackets <like this> for quoting words e.g. "The name <feta> comes from...". I have not seen this style on WP before. Is there a new policy? The conventions I've been following are:

• foreign word in text use italics: I like pastirma
• words being discussed as words use double-quotes: The word "pastirma" is Turkish
• glosses follow words in single quotes: döner kebab 'turning kebab'
• Greek words are not italicized (this has been discussed and decided, but I don't have the ref)
• pronunciations in IPA follow words in square brackets, with a reference to IPA if it's the first mention: πρόσφατος ['prosfatos]
• transliterations (if needed) do not include accents: πρόσφατος (prosphatos)

Let me know what you think. --Macrakis 16:04, 16 February 2007 (UTC)

I'm not using anything! My only change was using the "lang-el" template. --Explendido Rocha 16:11, 16 February 2007 (UTC)

# Ranked list of Norwegian counties

I have added a "{{prod}}" template to the article Ranked list of Norwegian counties, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but I don't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and I've explained why in the deletion notice (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may contest the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page. Also, please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

# Cup of Portugal

It's not the first time that I see your arrogant behaviour in Wikipedia. Don't be persistent, you have been blocked in the past for your «politeness». What you call "tretas and lies" (portuguese for «bulshit») will be discussed in the proper public place, e.g. talkpage and not decided by your dictatorial "explêndido" person( portuguese for «splendid» - how humble!). Concerning the matter itself there is only one type of people with that view: F.C. Porto mindlock fanatics, the very people who have made people lose belief in any sports truth in Portugal. Not impersonating this statement, your birthplace gives a hint.

Please add references as soon as possible. Thanks! --LaraBot (talk) 00:12, 7 February 2013 (UTC)

## Proposed deletion of Egill Eðvarðsson

The article Egill Eðvarðsson has been proposed for deletion because it appears to have no references. Under Wikipedia policy, this newly created biography of a living person will be deleted unless it has at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk.

## Speedy deletion nomination of Egill Eðvarðsson

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 Egill Eðvarðsson 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 see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but 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 yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. -- Patchy1 REF THIS BLP 08:57, 7 February 2013 (UTC)
