that was a bit of a coincidence, I wasn't aware of recent discussion on this, spotted someone had redirected Gabber by chance. To be honest I'm not even sure there should be three separate articles called Gabber, Hardcore (electronic dance music), and Mainstream hardcore, and the latter states that "hardcore" grew out of gabber, but it's arguably the other way around - usable source on that here ("Living Through Pop" p.151). Sourcing is poor for both the "Gabber" and "Mainstream hardcore" article (essentially the same topic). My preference is for a single "Hardcore" article.

I would think that nowadays hardcore and gabber might have different enough connotations for them to have separate articles, though not sure about available sources for the more recent developments in these styles. From the sources I can find on google books it seems that gabber and hardcore were used interchangeably in some circles in the 90s, so perhaps that article that suggests hardcore came out of gabber is actually trying to say "the second wave of gabber came out of gabber" which is pretty obvious anyway. – filelakeshoe (t / c) 07:47, 27 June 2014 (UTC)

ARG-HOL semi-final article[edit]

Hi, I noticed that you removed the wikilink that I added in the related to the article about the semi-final soon to happen between Argentina and Netherlands. In the 1st version of that article (already created) I explained why is notable. You shouldn't speedy delete it but seek for consensus, unless I'm missing something? Regards, DPdH (talk) 15:28, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

I didn't delete it, just redirected it for the time being, if you disagree you can revert me. I left a note at WikiProject football asking for comments. – filelakeshoe (t / c) 15:30, 9 July 2014 (UTC)
Sorry, just noticed the actual change. To avoid duplication of articles (as happened with BRA-GER) I'd prefer to revert if you don't mind. Then we can take a definitive action when the Wikiproject Football provides commentary. Regards, DPdH (talk) 15:36, 9 July 2014 (UTC)
Okay – filelakeshoe (t / c) 15:37, 9 July 2014 (UTC)
Hi again. Did you get comments from the Wikiproject? I noticed that there have been some edits and a couple of "redirects" done in this article (currently is in "redirect mode"); but no comments or guidance in its "Talk page". Thanks & regards, DPdH (talk) 20:22, 9 July 2014 (UTC)
I'm afraid there seems to be a consensus against – see Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Football at the bottom. Since the match was unremarkable I doubt this will change. – filelakeshoe (t / c) 23:04, 9 July 2014 (UTC)


Hello, could you be of help in getting a bot installed on the PopMatters Wikipedia page, so the Alexa ranking for their site (it is an online magazine) is automatically updated each month? I've read that such a bot exists on Wikipedia. But I've no idea how to install it on the PopMatters page. Can you help? So far I've just been updating it manually every few months. Thanks.

Cheers. Neptune's Trident (talk) 16:52, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

I'm afraid I don't know of any bot which does this, sorry. – filelakeshoe (t / c) 18:22, 14 July 2014 (UTC)

Trap Music[edit]

Hello Filelakeshoe,

I have been helping UKBassHead make his case to have 'Dubstep' added to the Stylistic Origins section of the Trap page. Would you be interested in joining the discussion?

I also viewed your post on separate pages for 'EDM Trap' and 'Trap'. I think the points raised by UKBassHead would indicate perhaps there is a case for this separation.

Thanks Nograviti (talk) 10:38, 25 July 2014 (UTC)


Would you like to join the discussion on "Electronica" I have started on the House Music talk page? This has been inserted several times in the "Sylistic Origins" section of the page until I'm not sure that it shouldn't actually be there. It would be good to define exactly what "Electronica" is - does it only apply to modern electronic music? Or across the decades as a "catch-all" term?

Language-population update project[edit]

Hi. The 18th edition of Ethnologue just came out, and if we divide up our language articles among us, it won't take long to update them. I would appreciate it if you could help out, even if it's just a few articles (5,000 articles is a lot for just me), but I won't be insulted if you delete this request.

A largely complete list of articles to be updated is at Category:Language articles citing Ethnologue 17. The priority articles are in Category:Language articles with old Ethnologue 17 speaker data. These are the 10% that have population figures at least 25 years old.

Probably 90% of the time, Ethnologue has not changed their figures between the 17th and 18th editions, so all we need to do is change "e17" to "e18" in the reference (ref) field of the language info box. That will change the citation for the artcle to the current edition. Please put the data in the proper fields, or the info box will flag it as needing editorial review. The other relevant fields are "speakers" (the number of native speakers in all countries), "date" (the date of the reference or census that Ethnologue uses, not the date of Ethnologue!), and sometimes "speakers2". Our convention has been to enter e.g. "1990 census" when a census is used, as other data can be much older than the publication date. Sometimes a citation elsewhere in the article depends on the e17 entry, in which case you will need to change "name=e17" to "name=e18" in the reference tag (assuming the 18th edition still supports the cited claim).

Remember, we want the *total* number of native speakers, which is often not the first figure given by Ethnologue. Sometimes the data is too incompatible to add together (e.g. a figure from the 1950s for one country, and a figure from 2006 for another), in which case it should be presented that way. That's one use for the "speakers2" field. If you're not sure, just ask, or skip that article.

Data should not be displayed with more than two, or at most three, significant figures. Sometimes it should be rounded off to just one significant figure, e.g. when some of the component data used by Ethnologue has been approximated with one figure (200,000, 3 million, etc.) and the other data has greater precision. For example, a figure of 200,000 for one country and 4,230 for another is really just 200,000 in total, as the 4,230 is within the margin of rounding off in the 200,000. If you want to retain the spurious precision of the number in Ethnologue, you might want to use the {{sigfig}} template. (First parameter in this template is for the data, second is for the number of figures to round it off to.)

Dates will often need to be a range of all the country data in the Ethnologue article. When entering the date range, I often ignore dates from countries that have only a few percent of the population, as often 10% or so of the population isn't even separately listed by Ethnologue and so is undated anyway.

If Ethnologue does not provide a date for the bulk of the population, just enter "no date" in the date field. But if the population figure is undated, and hasn't changed between the 17th & 18th editions of Ethnologue, please leave the ref field set to "e17", and maybe add a comment to keep it so that other editors don't change it. In cases like this, the edition of Ethnologue that the data first appeared in may be our only indication of how old it is. We still cite the 14th edition in a couple dozen articles, so our readers can see that the data is getting old.

The articles in the categories linked above are over 90% of the job. There are probably also articles that do not currently cite Ethnologue, but which we might want to update with the 18th edition. I'll need to generate another category to capture those, probably after most of the Ethnologue 17 citations are taken care of.

Jump in at the WP:LANG talk page if you have any comments or concerns. Thanks for any help you can give!

Article upgrade assistance request (Pre-translation stage)[edit]

Seasons Greetings,

This is in reference to a relatively new umbrella article on en-wikipedia named Ceremonial pole. Ceremonial pole is a human tradition since ancient times; either existed in past at some point of time, or still exists in some cultures across global continents from north to south & from east to west. Ceremonial poles are used to symbolize a variety of concepts in several different world cultures.

Through article Ceremonial pole we intend to take encyclopedic note of cultural aspects and festive celebrations around Ceremonial pole as an umbrella article and want to have historical, mythological, anthropological aspects, reverence or worships wherever concerned as a small part.

While Ceremonial poles have a long past and strong presence but usually less discussed subject. Even before we seek translation of this article in global languages, we need to have more encyclopedic information/input about Ceremonial poles from all global cultures and languages. And we seek your assistance in the same.

Since other contributors to the article are insisting for reliable sources and Standard native english; If your contributions get deleted (for some reason like linguistics or may be your information is reliable but unfortunately dosent match expectations of other editors) , please do list the same on Talk:Ceremonial pole page so that other wikipedians may help improve by interlanguage collaborations, and/or some other language wikipedias may be interested in giving more importance to reliablity of information over other factors on their respective wikipedia.

This particular request is being made to you since your user name is listed in Wikipedia:Translators available list.

Thanking you with warm regards Mahitgar (talk) 05:27, 24 October 2015 (UTC)

Right Wing Dictatorship[edit]

Hi there, just wondering why you added David Cameron to this article. That's been a consistent bit of vandalism on this article going back months and I'm not sure why you would do this. PanydThe muffin is not subtle 13:22, 13 November 2015 (UTC)

Sorry that was a mistake - there must have been an edit conflict. My edit was only intended to remove Emil Hácha. – filelakeshoe (t / c) 14:36, 14 November 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Pronunciation of Karel Čapek[edit]

Do you have a source for the accents being on the first syllables? The ogg file clearly places them on the last, as do the sound files here:, all from Czech speakers.  --Lambiam 23:43, 15 March 2016 (UTC)

All those sound files clearly place the accent on the first syllable. Do note that unstressed vowels are not reduced in tone in Czech as they are in English. See Czech phonology#Stress. – filelakeshoe (t / c) 21:47, 21 March 2016 (UTC)

Help please[edit]

A friend has asked me to help him and I am hoping you can help us me in this. Someone, who my friend thinks is an internet troll pretending to be Czech, has sent him a message in Czech. The message appears to be profane, but the question I have been asked to determine is whether the message has been written by a native speaker or if something Google translate has been used to generate the text. I will give you the text and I would ask you to let me know with a reply your opinion. If it is grammatically incorrect, please tell me why and even if it is grammatically correct are there other clues in the text that might indicate that it is not from a native speaker.

Here is the text "Nebudu opakovat neco co uz jsem napsal ty idiote! Nejsem tady proto, abych tady bavil nejakeho curaka!"

Please reply in English here. And then, you can delete the text (I do not want profanity on Wikipedia) I have bookmarked this page and can collect your reply in that way.

The related web page is this one and the comment is from "Jan Schlosser"

Sorry to disturb your day but you did invite help requests at the top of your talk page ;)

Best regards --HuntersMoon22 (talk) 09:45, 16 March 2016 (UTC)

It means "I won't repeat something I've already written, you idiot! I'm not here to deal with wankers!" It's missing a load of diacritics, otherwise grammatically coherent. Probably a native speaker. – filelakeshoe (t / c) 21:49, 21 March 2016 (UTC)

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, Filelakeshoe. This message is intended to notify administrators of important changes to the protection policy.

Extended confirmed protection (also known as "30/500 protection") is a new level of page protection that only allows edits from accounts at least 30 days old and with 500 edits. The automatically assigned "extended confirmed" user right was created for this purpose. The protection level was created following this community discussion with the primary intention of enforcing various arbitration remedies that prohibited editors under the "30 days/500 edits" threshold to edit certain topic areas.

In July and August 2016, a request for comment established consensus for community use of the new protection level. Administrators are authorized to apply extended confirmed protection to combat any form of disruption (e.g. vandalism, sock puppetry, edit warring, etc.) on any topic, subject to the following conditions:

  • Extended confirmed protection may only be used in cases where semi-protection has proven ineffective. It should not be used as a first resort.
  • A bot will post a notification at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard of each use. MusikBot currently does this by updating a report, which is transcluded onto the noticeboard.
Please review the protection policy carefully before using this new level of protection on pages. Thank you.
This message was sent to the administrators' mass message list. To opt-out of future messages, please remove yourself from the list. 17:47, 23 September 2016 (UTC)
