If others appear (which I really doubt), voting for deletion, ask an administrator to help. Probably the deletion-maniac who created the page, has made some mistake. He makes a lot of mistakes anyway, orthographical, tactical, why not technical as well? --FocalPoint 18:06, 25 October 2006 (UTC)

Searching[edit]

(subtitle added later, for easier explanation: Searching for an admin to fix the problem of non-appearance in the proposed deletion log)

  • Method 1: Start from Wikipedia:Administrators and follow the leads
  • Method 2: Search smartly (admin + football interests + active every day/today) starting either generically (Google) or starting from editors of football articles and checking them.
  • Method 3: Ask people interested in football for an admin with the same interests.

An advice: Tony has gathered support. Ask voters from that page, to judge whether the page you wrote should be deleted.--FocalPoint 20:09, 25 October 2006 (UTC)

As I just realized, this behavior might be considered vandalism, as it can disrupt user's normal interests. Please ignore my previous advice.--FocalPoint 14:49, 26 October 2006 (UTC)

It was as I told you. He did steps 1 and 2, but not step 3 for deletion request. A bot fixed it.--FocalPoint 20:34, 25 October 2006 (UTC)

Cyprus-stub[edit]

To template για το cyprus-stub προτείνεται απο τουσ τουρκους να αλλάξει. "This Cyprus-related article is a stub. You can help Wikipedia by expanding it." Ηδη προτείνεται να αλλάξει το link για την Κύπρο στο να ειναι link gia το αρθρο για τη γεωγραφία της Κυπρου, και επίσης κερδίζει ηδη έδαφος στο να φύγει η σημαια μας και να αντικατασταθει με τον χαρτη της Κυπρου. Επειδη εχουμε τσακωθει καποιες φορες και οταν ανταλλάζαμε αποψεις, παραδεχομαι οτι ξερεις να βάζεις επιχειρηματα καλά, μπορεις να με βοηθησεις να μην περασει αυτο που θελουν οι Τουρκοι? Ηδη προσπαθω εγώ μόνος μου αλλα και εγω ειμαι σε εξεταστικη περιοδο και δεν μπορω να πολυασχοληθω με τιν βικιπέδια αν μπορουσες να βοηθησεις... KRBN 14:27, 9 January 2007(UTC)

Wikipedia talk:Notability (people)#Regarding notability of Football (soccer) players[edit]

Hi, seeing you have been involved in previous Afd debates I invite you to contribute to this discussion to clarify certain issues about football player notability. I think clearer guidelines are needed to avoid repeated inappropriate nominations for deletion and time consuming discussions. Cheers! StephP 17:33, 29 March 2007 (UTC)

Hello[edit]

Hello! I had answered to your earlier question about Askamax in my own Talk Page since I couldn't be directed to yours. I hope you saw the answer then. I am glad I can talk to somebody with such interest and knowledge on the particular issues - I hope, too, that we could "protect" each other's articles form vandals etc. Pes mou an einai OK na milame sta Ellinika.

UN Buffer Zone, Kormakitis[edit]

Thank you for your interest on my edits. In order to avoid a useless series of counter-editing and reverts, I would like to suggest if we may discuss the points of disagreement either here or on the relevant talk pages. Please assume my good faith. In many cases, I am only suggesting the use of less controversial wording and/or the inclusion of all relevant points of view. I frankly did not understand why you reverted all my edits on Kormakitis. Thanks again for your explanation. - FrancescoMazzucotelli 11:56, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

see you page for replyGeorgeg 14:18, 30 October 2007 (UTC)
Thank you for your reply. If the point of disagreement is the word "invasion", I don't understand why you keep reverting my whole edits, including references. You can just edit the word "military intervention" and explain the reasons of your choice on the relevant talk pages. The fact that "invasion" is used by media outlets might be a valid argument to support your stance.
On the other hand, reverting all of my edits is simply not constructive. That you disagree with my preferences about one word is not a sufficient reason for rejecting my contribution altogether.
I did not appreciate the argument ad hominem. I am not affiliated to anyone and I kindly ask you to avoid similar conjectures in any future conversation. Let me remind you to please assume good faith. FrancescoMazzucotelli 14:29, 30 October 2007 (UTC)
Can you specify what you are exactly talking about? What are the valid references that I seem to dislike? As far as I know, I added the text of a UNSC resolution, quoted from the website of the government of the Republic of Cyprus. Or maybe are you meaning that I highlighted that a passage was taken verbatim from here? It looks like that the person who is pushing a POV is not me. I am not willing to go about correcting your edits, I will be simply reverting them as a whole until your contibution respects other POVs too is a very unconstructive statement and clearly not in the spirit of this project. I have time and again invited you to discuss the points of disagreement on the talk pages. I am still waiting for your arguments. Again, I kindly ask to please not question my moral integrity and bona fide anymore, otherwise I may have to consider the option to report your behaviour to an administrator, which isn't exactly what I aspire to. I have more interesting ideas on how to spend my spare time. Best regards, FrancescoMazzucotelli 22:31, 30 October 2007 (UTC)
Can you please provide one example of repeated threats? I have been kindly asking you to refrain from statements that I find objectionable. If that is a "threat" to you, it is definitely a quite bizarre definition. Or a very lame spin attempt. Choose one.
Can you please explain why bona fide cannot be assumed in my case? Sorry to be harsh, but it is you who keeps reverting contributions without providing any rationale or any argument. Good faith has nothing to with the number of my edits, rather it is related to your personal attacks and unproven suggestion that I have a storng [sic] affiliation with the Turkish point of view. Best regards and enjoy your petty edit wars if you fancy that, FrancescoMazzucotelli 12:33, 31 October 2007 (UTC)
It is so kind and constructive that you are trying to make me feel guilty through a very lame spin attempt and because of your own personal misinterpretation of the word "accident". However, I admit that my choice of wording was rather unfortunate, whereas I meant the word incident. "Incident" is a word used by several media outlets to describe a series of events that involves an attack or series of attacks (compromise and/or breach of security) at one or more sites [1] or an occurrence or event that interrupts normal procedure or precipitates a crisis [2], as in the expression an international incident. Hadn't you lost your temper so quickly (and had you asked for clarification instead), you could have assumed that I was not questioning the event. I was only suggesting a neutral way to describe it.
As for the rest of your message, I see only a list of angry rants and personal insults not really worth an answer. Rest assured, I value every form of life. FrancescoMazzucotelli 05:35, 4 November 2007 (UTC)
Another very lame spin attempt. I asked Lar about what positive measures I can take to defuse tensions and let the project move ahead and he advised me to keep working to reach a compromise as you are [3]. Have a nice week, FrancescoMazzucotelli 17:21, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

UN Buffer Zone[edit]

You know what? I have nothing to object to your latest edits. There are references, and the content is fact-based. The only thing I would add is that we might have achieved the same result in a more co-operative way. I hope we can proceed in the same spirit of co-operation on future edits, for example on Kormakitis. Best regards, FrancescoMazzucotelli 19:45, 31 October 2007 (UTC)

Cypriot presidential election, 2008[edit]

Hi. Sorry for reverting your last edit. The infobox may be useful but since we have 7 candidates I don't it nice to have an infobox with only 3 of them. I understand that these 3 are the most popular but I don't feel like promoting them against the other four. I think we don't lose much by not having the infobox for time being. Friendly, Magioladitis (talk) 01:07, 29 January 2008 (UTC)

I tried to add more candidates as well before reverting your edit :) As I told you the infobox looks nice, the problem is that allows only 3 names. -- Magioladitis (talk) 10:08, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

EOKA[edit]

Hello there

Why did you delete my passage about the officers being killed? Please provide edit summarys it would help! Police,Mad,Jack (talk · contribs) 18:16, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

I reverted your edit because:

  • EOKA was disbanded in 1959 hence could not have carried out an attack in 1980 as per your entry and
  • your claim is unreferenced

Hope this provides a good enough explanation Georgeg (talk) 18:30, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

It does thank you, I wont go putting it back because your claims are fair enough. I'm sure I read somwhere they were shot by EOKA, oh well phraps not. Thanks anyway, regards. Police,Mad,Jack (talk · contribs) 18:33, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

Hi George[edit]

Thank you for the invitation George. I agree with your overall concept. And you are right it is necessary. I think the wording however is not 100% justified. The will of the cypriots at the time (from what i know) was 1. to force the british out, and 2. Union with Greece. why do you think the new article should be named Cypriot struggle for independence? In my opinion the article's name should be Cypriot struggle for self determination, thus including all reasons why cypriots back then fought. There were petitions to the UN and the British colonial rule, supporting the latter. Those can be used as references. The fact that the British in the after math (because of the struggle) concorded to the creation of an independent country, Cyprus does not, in my opinion mean that the struggle itself was for independence. Independence if i am not mistaken was a compromise between Makarios and the British so that the struggle would end. It is this agreement that a minority of Greek Cypriots back then, decided to nullify by creating EOKA B. Regards, Meander 09:12, 27 April 2008 (UTC)

Lysiotiki Souvla[edit]

I have no problem with it being there, if anyone seemed to know what it is! but i don't know, and whoever i ask, just says that its famous- well thats not good enough, it really isn'tHotspury (talk) 11:06, 13 July 2008 (UTC)


thanks for the reply, you are right, it should be there, but as nobody seems to know the recipe, i get the feeling they are interchangeable. because of the way souvla is made, you can't really vary the recipe that much, if you marinate the meat, it colours too much, but then again that is my opinion not a fact. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Hotspury (talkcontribs) 15:13, 13 July 2008 (UTC)


i've been travelling in cyprus for a few weeks now, and i've asked plenty of people!! but other than the fact that they think Lysiotiki Souvla is different in some way, no one knows in what way!!!!!!!!!!!Hotspury (talk) 08:25, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

I have found the recipe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Hotspury (talk) 12:52, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

ok- more on the lysiotiki souvla, there is a restaurant of that name, the owner and my father seem to go to the same social club- the recipe seems to call for a vinegar marinade, however on close questioning, i couldnt get an assurance that this recipe was from lyssi!!! the thing is, that recipe is extremely successful, popular and long lived. it could well be that the restaurant has spawned a recipe- given it a name of a place, and then folk have assumed a tradition. i will continue to probe- the same restaurant is being used in a nicosia restaurant called Pais, this is to be expected as the owner is the son. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Hotspury (talkcontribs) 17:56, 4 October 2009 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use Image:Kaiafas.jpg[edit]

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:Kaiafas.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per our non-free content policy.

However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 14:26, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:Stoxos cover.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Stoxos cover.jpg. You've indicated that the image is being used under a claim of fair use, but you have not provided an adequate explanation for why it meets Wikipedia's requirements for such images. In particular, for each page the image is used on, the image must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Can you please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for each article the image is used in.
  • That every article it is used on is linked to from its description page.

File:Grivas.gif listed for deletion[edit]

An image or media file that you uploaded or altered, File:Grivas.gif, has been listed at Wikipedia:Files for deletion.

Better source request for File:Grivas.gif[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Grivas.gif. You provided a source, but it is difficult for other users to examine the copyright status of the image because the source is incomplete. Please consider clarifying the exact source so that the copyright status may be checked more easily. It is best to specify the exact Web page where you found the image, rather than only giving the source domain or the URL of the image file itself. Please update the image description with a URL that will be more helpful to other users in determining the copyright status.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source in a complete manner. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page or me at my talk page. Thank you. Rockfang (talk) 21:28, 28 July 2009 (UTC)


Disputed non-free use rationale for File:Marios Tokas.jpg[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thank you for uploading File:Marios Tokas.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this file on Wikipedia may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the file description page and adding or clarifying the reason why the file qualifies under this policy. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your file is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a non-free use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for files used under the non-free content policy require both a copyright tag and a non-free use rationale.

If it is determined that the file does not qualify under the non-free content policy, it might be deleted by an administrator within a few days in accordance with our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you. SchuminWeb (Talk) 17:13, 16 November 2010 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:Makarios Photo profile.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Makarios Photo profile.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information or which could be adequately covered with text alone. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per our non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Fut.Perf. 14:29, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for File:Imera cover.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Imera cover.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the file description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 11:41, 24 June 2011 (UTC)

File:Cyprus museum facade.jpg missing description details[edit]

Dear uploader: The media file you uploaded as:

is missing a description and/or other details on its image description page. If possible, please add this information. This will help other editors make better use of the image, and it will be more informative to readers.

If the information is not provided, the image may eventually be proposed for deletion, a situation which is not desirable, and which can easily be avoided.

If you have any questions, please see Help:Image page. Thank you. Theo's Little Bot (error?) 05:08, 14 April 2013 (UTC)

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.

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.
