Thanks for letting me know, I'm glad if something I've written is useful, especially so many years later! - Nunh-huh 21:43, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

FYI[edit]

Just so you won't think it just "disappeared", our discussion that was listed at Talk:Burma#Burma or Myanmar? was moved by another editor to a subpage, Talk:Burma/Myanmar#Burma or Myanmar?, to follow the guidelines at the TOP of the Talk:Burma page. – PAINE ELLSWORTH CLIMAX! 02:26, 21 June 2013 (UTC)

Kosovo[edit]

I'm looking at the maps now and I see that Kosovo has a solid white outline in the new Russia map, but not the original. In the Ukraine maps, it's a dashed line. Is that your concern? Kosovo should have a dashed line? EvergreenFir (talk) 03:28, 22 March 2014 (UTC)

Yes correct - User:EvergreenFir - Either no line or a dotted one is appropriate in my view. It's a disputed territory. Frenchmalawi (talk) 17:56, 22 March 2014 (UTC)
It's been fixed! File:Russian_Federation_(orthographic_projection)_-_Crimea_disputed.svg EvergreenFir (talk) 03:26, 24 March 2014 (UTC)
User:EvergreenFir - I do appreciate your effort and have no doubt you mean well; but the updated map as linked here by you is just the same. Kosovo is represented as if it were a regular country like any other. I clicked into it and zoomed in as much as one can. If you do so, I think you will see what I mean. Thanks.

Sigh, someone reverted it... will revert. EvergreenFir (talk) 02:01, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

RM notification[edit]

Since you have participated in at least one Requested Move or Move Review discussion, either as participant or closer, regarding the title of the article currently at Sarah Jane Brown, you are being notified that there is another discussion about that going on now, at Talk:Sarah Jane Brown#Requested move #10. We hope we can finally achieve consensus among all participating about which title best meets policy and guidelines, and is not too objectionable. --В²C 17:14, 24 October 2014 (UTC)

WP:3[edit]

User talk:Erpert: Thanks. Appreciate the tip, though I think that practice of omitting the four tildas is really silly. I've discussed the dispute a bit more with the editor on the Talk: Ulster page. You know what WP is like, there is no prospect of any consensus and its a small minority interest topic that not many editors will bother with (doubt it will will get to more than me, him and maybe one other).

WP:3O[edit]

Thank you for listing your dispute at Wikipedia:Third opinion. Your request did not follow the guidelines for listing disputes. These guidelines are in place because they make sure that the editor who writes the Third Opinion is not biased, and that (s)he can easily see what the dispute is about.

The description of the dispute should be concise and neutral, and you should sign with the timestamp only. A concise and neutral description means that only the subject matter of the dispute should be described, and not your (nor anyone else's) views on it. For example, in a dispute about reliable sources, do not write "He thinks this source is unreliable", but rather write "Disagreement about the reliability of a source". To sign with only the timestamp, and without your username, use five tildes (~~~~~) instead of four.

Your request for a Third Opinion may have been edited by another editor to follow the guidelines - feel free to edit it again if necessary. If the dispute is of such a nature that it cannot follow the guidelines, another part of the dispute resolution process may be able to help you. Regards,Godsy(TALKCONT) 15:32, 19 October 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
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.

Sources for official name[edit]

Two sources are included re its official name: The EU and the CIA World Fact Book. If you follow the links, both sources say its official name is plain "Libya". "Libya" is also the name used and notified to UN. If it's been changed to "State of Libya" proper sources are needed to show this. In the meantime I've removed the references to "State of" and the statement concerning a change having been made which did not cite any sources whatsoever. For avoidance of doubt:

  • U.S. CIA world factbook lists "Libya" as the long form name;
  • EU lists "Libya" as long form name;
  • UN uses "Libya" and includes the following note "Following the adoption by the General Assembly of resolution 66/1, the Permanent Mission of Libya to the United Nations formally notified the United Nations of a Declaration by the National Transitional Council of 3 August changing the official name of the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya to "Libya" and changing Libya's national flag."

Your edits to Catalan independence[edit]

Disrupting Wikipedia to make a point may lead to a block or ban. So can wikihounding. Your edits to Catalan independence were both, an attempt to get back at me for my (reasonable) reverts at Provisional Government of Ireland (1922). I won't take it to ANI on this occasion, because I don't need the drama, but please try to be sensible in future. Scolaire (talk) 19:07, 16 October 2016 (UTC)
