Re: Untagged Croatia articles

I meant deleting the WP Europe banner ({{WikiProject Europe|...|Croatia=yes}}) and adding the new WP Croatia banner ({{WikiProject Croatia}}), as most of these articles don't fall within the scope of WP Europe, but landed in its category as the WP Croatia banner was instated. I have outlined this at the Category:Untagged WikiProject Croatia articles. Admiral Norton (talk) 23:33, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

One thing though, when tagging talk pages of sportspeople, don't forget to add Template:WPBiography and its fields like living=yes or no, |sports-work-group=yes etc. Thanks, Punkmorten (talk) 10:03, 22 March 2009 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of SFera (Romania)

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on SFera (Romania) 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 company or corporation, 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, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for companies and corporations.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page 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 page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you. TNXMan 19:02, 6 March 2009 (UTC)

Anti-Croat circles

Hi, Gregor.
What was wrong here [1]?
These (anti-Croat circles) were the politicians that abolished many football clubs and even destroyed their archives under the lame excuse "they collaborated with enemy". These clubs were "guilty" for the sole reason that they decised to exist in despite of difficult wartimes. Kamarad Walter (talk) 21:27, 7 March 2009 (UTC)


Hi GregorB, and thank you for the invitation! Yes, I am interested in joining the WikiProject Croatia but just dont know if I am ready yet, because I am still learning all the Wiki rules (there are so many of them). I guess it is up to you to decide, since you noticed my edits. Thanks again! --Kebeta (talk) 15:28, 9 March 2009 (UTC)

It is done. Regards. --Kebeta (talk) 16:20, 9 March 2009 (UTC)

Question? I know how an article has been rated as Stub (or Start or ...)-Class on the quality scale, but I dont understand how an article has been rated on the importance scale. Who decide how an article is important. Is it a consensus or...? --Kebeta (talk) 16:32, 9 March 2009 (UTC)

Understood. I will ask for an assessment at the WP Croatia talk page for some articles (when I get some time), because I think lots of Croatia-related articles are underestimated, especially concerning history. Regards.--Kebeta (talk) 18:33, 9 March 2009 (UTC)

Axis order of battle at Stalingrad

I've I remove the Wikiproject Germany tag, does that mean, it never hapened and German soldiers were never at Stalingrad? How great it would be if we could remove the Wikiproject Germany from the Hitler, Goebbels and Himmler articles and be rid of them once and for all out of our history! Don't plame you for taking the Wikiproject Croatia tag off, I too wish 1933 to 1945 were wiped from history! EA210269 (talk) 04:39, 22 March 2009 (UTC)

No worries, I just read the word tenuous, which, I had to check it up, redirects to Doubt. And there can be little doubt that Croatian forces were there. Whether you want the page to be part of Wikiproject Croatia is your choice, I'm not a member and therefore don't really want to interfere there, thats why I havn't reverted you. Hope I havn't upset you to much, it wasn't intended, have a good day, EA210269 (talk) 14:43, 22 March 2009 (UTC)

Anti-communist Volunteer Militia and V.A.C.

V.A.C. It is a duplicate of Anti-Communist Volunteer Militia, but it's much more detailed, so I'd suggest taking the content from V.A.C. and incorporating it into Anti-Communist Volunteer Militia. Once this process is finished, merge tags can be removed and V.A.C. can be made to redirect to the target article. See Help:Merging and moving pages or ask me if you need help. GregorB (talk) 14:29, 27 March 2009 (UTC)

I'll merge the two articles but unfortunately some moderator yet delated V.A.C.

- never mind - thank you for restoring the article

I disagree on the name of Anti-Communist as in the original italian it is "Anti Comunista" the hyphen is a later error of some author. the political name, used by the fascist party administration, was "Anti Communist Volunteer Militia" but the military usual denomination was Bande V.A.C. as "Bande" is the term used by italian military for irregular auxiliary forces, see the colonial italian Army use for this I would suggest a name for the Wiki article as "Anti Communist Volunteer Militia - Bande V.A.C." merging the two names

thank you for your attention, regards

--Dravecky (talk) 18:34, 31 March 2009 (UTC)


Hi, sorry if I write to you, but I don't want to flood the project page with my lamentations. So you're the lucky one who will be annoyed :D. Of course, if even you will tink I'm an 'intruse', you can just ignore this post, I'll survive. :)

I'm en enthusiastic contributor of the Wikipedia project, and in general I support any wiki project in any language I understand, from ages. I'm active mainly in, where I registered the Yuma account, as it is the language I can master in the best way, and that's the reason because it happens that I'm a sysop on that wiki. But I consider myself a contributor of the whole project, and since I have a global account I do what I can with that same account anywhere I'm able to do something, spending the time I have in making some effort to contribute in collecting and developing free content. I never said I'm Italian, or Swiss, or whatever. My nationality is irrelevant: I'm a wikipedian, here. I completely agree with the philosophy of this project, beginning from the five pillars. Usually, I don't edit so much on geography articles. My interests are more 'humanistics', though I'm a wikignome on everything.

It happens, a few weeks ago, that I found an incredible rise of anger from some editors, about a supposed anti-italian approach on the english side. Since I felt it like an absurd issue, and since I feel myself not just an user, I tried to understand. I thougt that issue was untrue, and unjust, and basically the result of a case of trolling. The next time I logged in here, I took a look on some articles, and I found some little problems on bilingual articles. The best way to fight trolling is to eliminate the 'material' on which trolls keep feeding. That's why I pointed it, at first, to the editor. His response was harsh and non so satisfating, so I asked to the wikiproject.

Now, I'm not used to flame, but I realize that, in posting there, I probably was offending some sensitivity. But I did'nt expected to be treated as an intruse. I'm higly disappointed. We are writing an encyclopedia, we must find the most correct way to add info. But if some issues has the clear purpose of hiding as much as we can some info (today the 'italian' toponyms, tomorrow something else), I can't see the difference with the people coming here for 'exalting' such data. I probably mistaken in the way I noted it, but I'm used to be honest, and to tell what I think. Did I was offensive?

By the way, I think I rised a problem, and I contributed enough in analysing it. Sorry if I was 'intrusive'. I will try to abstain from the project page, since someone thiks I have no right to 'make lectures' (and since I'm able to keep myself cool, but sometime it's tiring). I'm confident that there is a lot of excellent users, and you will find the best way to handle it.

If you read all the 'paper'... thanks for your patience! :) --Yuma (talk) 13:47, 16 April 2009 (UTC)

Sorry GregorB, we need to find a solution. Pio, Bruno and the others are out. This war must stop. We are not asking to have all the Istrian pages like the Bolzano page, but we are asking to have the possibility to insert, without starting an edit war, the official name of the Istrian cities that are officially bilingual, as I explained here: This can be done only with consensus of most. Can you try to explain the situation to the others? --Grifter72 (talk) 16:10, 16 April 2009 (UTC)

Humm... I don't know very well Grifter so I don't know if I must be glad or not about sentences beginning with we... By the way, I see an increasing aggressive statements against me in the talk page of the wikiproject. I definitely suspend any further contribution on that page. See you around. --Yuma (talk) 16:40, 16 April 2009 (UTC)
I feel like a murderer at the victim's funeral... nevertheless, I feel I must comment on Yuma's post since it appears to concern me. A Wikipedian's mettle can be seen in the way he handles criticism (constructive or no). I myself don't do so well there and am admittedly aggressive in discussion at times, however, I don't think this was one of those instances. In my opinion, Alasadair was somewhat unnecessarily harsh towards Yuma who seems to sincerely desire to help with this issue. No major incidents occurred, though, and all this boils down to a few "not-so-perfectly-friendly" posts. Hardly a cause for all-out "disappointment with everything".
As for this subject, and I cannot stress this enough, it is highly controversial. If you think this is bad Yuma, have a look at Talk:Kosovo, the hate is seeping out of every written word. That was Dalmatia/Istria ten months back, and you've just jumped into it: you have to be prepared for some harshness of tone, a few months there and you lose your temper and reputation but gain a cardiac disorder :P. I'll just say again, in conclusion, that the matter is controversial and that consensus needs to be reached properly before anyone forces any decisions. --DIREKTOR (TALK) 19:52, 16 April 2009 (UTC)


Many thanks. I'll observe, and think about. :) --Yuma (talk) 00:27, 17 April 2009 (UTC)

Hi GregorB, can you help me with Category:Kingdom of Croatia. I never made a category, can you fix what ever needs to be fixed. Thanks. --Kebeta (talk) 18:43, 7 June 2009 (UTC)

Thanks! Yes you are right, definition makes the category span something like 10 centuries of Croatian history, but if (when) that come to a problem, we can make Subcategories. But, maybe this category will not be allowed after 1102, so it won't be a problem. Regards. --Kebeta (talk) 19:21, 7 June 2009 (UTC)
In Template:History of Croatia there are Medieval Croatian state and Kingdom of Croatia. Both of them lead to the same article: Kingdom of Croatia (Medieval). Should we deleted one of them? --Kebeta (talk) 20:17, 7 June 2009 (UTC)
Yes, they were probably two different articles before. If you look at article History of Croatia, you will see two different sections: Medieval Croatian state (until 925) and Kingdom of Croatia (925-1102). Both of them are now part of one main aricle Kingdom of Croatia (medieval). So, we should fix that too? --Kebeta (talk) 20:52, 7 June 2009 (UTC)

Talk:Serbo-Croatian language

Why should we write Serbo-Croatian in SR Croatia (the article) and other similar cases?

Did you see the discussion at Hey, Slavs in relation to the SC issue? I have found out that at the 10% of books use the term Croato-Serbian. Why should this encyclopaedia differ?

Did you see:

Do we need that for the settlement of the SC issue?

BTW Mr. DIREKTOR belive that Bosniaks, Croats, and Serbs are one nation with one singular language.

Imbris (talk) 21:28, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

The article is under SC name

What more DIREKTOR and I. Š. would want. I hope that you realize, that by various Wiki policies the RfC can "decide" (in fact give an unbounding agreement) only on the article under which the RfC were requested. The RfC on SC/CS in the SC article is not bounding for all the other articles on wikipedia. Mr. DIREKTOR deliberately disclosed only his "search" on google, but not on

Here is a very important diff from the past where Mr. DIREKTOR wrote about the bos, hrv, and also srp as being non-existant — because there is only Serbo-Croatian (by his POV). Also he describes in the same diff (slightly below his POV on languages) the POV on nations, he describes as the TRUTH (he writtes a lot of capital letters) his own POV that Bosniaks, Croats, (I presume he included the Montenegrins also) and Serbs are one nation.

It might be Ok to use the "name" of the article Serbo-Croatian in most cases but in all cases. Why? SR Croatia was not Estonian SSR (and other Baltic states) where Russian was forced as official.

Please reconsider the implications on the sources and reliability.

Croatian footballers

Hi Gregor. As you noteced ( since you´ve made the Talk pages) I´m making many footballer pages, maynly the ones that have played in Serbia and ex-Yugoslavia. I did a new one: Marijan Zovko. But I have some doubts... This time I did the Talk page. I did it as you did one other before, Davor Čop, is it OK? Whenever I do some Croatian player I´ll do it this way, should I? Another thing is about the player itself. I´m not sure if you´re the one I should ask you this stuff, couse I´m not sure you like or not football, but I´m missing all the manager years and teams of Marijan Zovko couse I can´t find more either by net or by the literature I have. I know he has been coaching many teams in Croatia. Do you know more that I missed? And, maynly, he´s named Marijan, but I also find some places where is written Marjan (without i ). Did I do it wright, Marijan, and not Marjan? If you don´t know, or don´t have time to help me, don´t warry, I´ll do further reserch in the future. Thanx anyway. Pozdrav. FkpCascais (talk) 00:18, 15 September 2009 (UTC)

Thanx Gregor for answering me. The thing was that in the begining I didn´t used to do the talk pages cause I touth some WikiProject "leaders" are the ones that give them the low/or other "ocene". But then some other fellow wikipedian told me do it if it wasn´t too much work... So, since then, when starting a page, I try to do it as complete as possible. Please feel free to contact me whenever in need of any kind of help, and also, I already said the same to Timbouctou, feel free to complete or correct, if necessary, those pages. Regards.

Article moves

Hi, you left a message on my talk page about my article move concerning Stadion Maksimir. I did it because it seemed inconsistent to have the majority of articles about Croatian stadiums named the way they are originally called in Croatian (like Gradski stadion u Poljudu or Stadion Šubićevac) with only some of them retaining English translations in article names (like Maksimir Stadium or Kantrida Stadium). If you look at lists such as the list of Spanish stadiums, list of French stadiums or list of Italian stadiums, you will see that 99 percent of articles are named according to their original name in the native language. Granted, there are a few exceptions to this, such as Santiago Bernabéu Stadium or Vicente Calderón Stadium, but it seems that the general tendency is to keep the original name, even though you could find English-language sources for venues such as Stade de France or Stade Vélodrome if you wanted to. Having that said, I don't think that WP:UE applies here as the rules you cited concern foreign names and transliteration, which is not the issue here. The issue here lies with whether to use English-language formatting or keep the original one (whether Croatian venues should be called Stadion XXX or XXX Stadium). In my opinion it should be the former as I think we should try to stick with the official name of the venue as precisely as possible (which is also the reason I moved Stadion Kranjčevićeva to Stadion u Kranjčevićevoj ulici as it is it's full official name), but if you still disagree we could look for help at WP Football to resolve this.

1981 Croatia statistics

Thank you for providing that information. The economic development of the Yugoslav republics is actually something that really interests me. Would your atlas have per capita info on cities in the former Yugoslavia? (I'm interested in the capitals so mainly Belgrade, Zagreb, Sarajevo, Skopje, Ljubljana, Podgorica and maybe some other big cities such as Novi Sad, Split, Banja Luka)? Also do you have data on the ethnic make up on the big cities of Croatia such as Zagreb, Split, Rijeka, Osijek, Zadar, Pula, Slavonski Brod, Karlovac, Sisak, Varazdin etc.? If you can provide me with this data I would be very grateful. Best Regards Yugo91aesop (talk) 18:48, 22 November 2009 (UTC)

Woah. That information was golden. Could I perhaps get the average gdp (Yugoslavia 100) for the following cities. I know it is asking a lot.

Slovenia: Ljubljana, Maribor, Kranj, Celje, Koper, Novo Mesto, Nova Gorica, Velenje, Domzale, Slovenska Bistrica, Krsko, Kamnik, Brezice, Ptuj, Skofja Loka, Jesenice, Zalec Croatia: Zagreb, Split, Rijeka, Osijek, Zadar, Slavonski Brod, Pula, Karlovac, Varazdin, Sibenik, Sisak, Vinkovci, Dubrovnik, Vukovar, Bjelovar, Koprivnica, Pozega, Dakovo Bosnia: Sarajevo, Banja Luka, Zenica, Tuzla, Mostar, Bihac, Brcko, Prijedor, Bijeljina, Doboj, Travnik, Trebinje, Bugujno, Gorazde Serbia: Belgrade, Nis, Kragujevac, Smederevo, Leskovac, Krusevac, Cacak, Valjevo, Kraljevo, Sabac, Novi Pazar, Uzice, Zajecar, Vranje, Pozarevac, Pirot, Bor, Jagodina, Prokuplje, Smederevska Palanka, Paracin, Arandelovac, Gornji Milanovac, Obrenovac, Lazarevac, Mladenovac, Cuprija, Loznica Vojvodina: Novi Sad, Subotica, Zrenjanin, Pancevo, Sombor, Kikinda, Sremska Mitrovica, Vrsac, Ruma, Backa Palanka, Indija, Vrbas, Becej, Senta Kosovo: Pristina, Prizren, Pec, Kosovska Mitrovica, Urosevac, Gniljane, Dakovica, Podujevo, Montenegro: Podgorica, Niksic, Herceg Novi, Cetinje Macedonia: Skopje, Bitola, Kumanovo, Prilep, Veles, Stip, Tetovo, Ohrid, Gostivar, Strumica, Kicevo, Kavadarci, Kocani

If you don't want to do all of them then I'm happy with the ones just in bold too. Those are towns with populations of over 50,000. The rest goes down to 20,000. I'm gonna incorporate this into articles on the cities so it won't be for a lost cause. If you can give me this info then I will be extremely grateful. Yugo91aesop (talk) 03:17, 23 November 2009 (UTC)

Thanks a ton and looking forward to the rest:) Yugo91aesop (talk) 04:16, 28 November 2009 (UTC)

Could I get the 1981 gdp per capita of the following municapilities in Yugoslavia. Serbia: Priboj, Svetozarevo, Knjazevac, Apatin, Kula, Temerin, Stara Pazova, Futog, Negotin, Trstenik, Aleksinac, Sid, Vlasotince, Velika Plana, Backa Topala, Prijepolje Montenegro: Bar, Berane, Bijelo Polje, Pljevlja, Ulcinj, Tivat Croatia: Krapina, Kutina, Petrinja, Ogulin, Koprivnica, Krizevci, Virovitica, Pozega, Knin, Kastela, Sinj, Cakovec A lota these you might not be able to find since the municipalities have changed since then especially in Croatia but if you can get me these stats i'd appreciate it. Do it whenever u feel like it cuz i know its annoying to go through. Thanks! Yugo91aesop (talk) 20:59, 26 January 2010 (UTC)

Cara & Don Marko Bon of Zrnovo

Check this out Research by Marko Marelic-S. Francisco/USA. I'm writing an article on an old Croatian Village called Cara (work in progress). Would love some input-please. I'm wondering if Mr Marko Marelic's work is ok for Wiki. Also I've written a chapter on an all round tough guy "Don Marko Bon of Zrnovo" [6]. I would like to add this to the Korcula page, if it's suited of course. Thanks Sir Floyd (talk) 00:49, 25 November 2009 (UTC)

Hi GregorB! Any change of a copyedited (when you got some free time) on my new article Čara, please. Regards Sir Floyd (talk) 01:55, 28 November 2009 (UTC)

Extra Notes:

  • Google Translate-links not working properly?
  • Google search-no hits on Cara?

Battle of Pákozd

Thanks for rating that. I didn't know whether I should include it under Croatia at all, and another editor has removed the {{Croatia-hist-stub}}, no problem with that, it's easier that you get sight of it and remove it than that you never see it at all.

We're still in the middle of translating it, we have the top and tail but there is a battle missing, so if you think it is of any importance to your project at all, I should like to resubmit it again probably at the end of today (London time here). I don't mind if it still stays stub-class, but was perhaps premature for me to add the tag, and thus premature for you to assess it. Didn't realise it would be so quick!

I realise this is may be better put on the WikiProject Croatia page, and don't mind if you move it there, but I'm not and don't want to be involved in that project (not for any reason except I am concentrating on Hungary) so I talk to you personally first.

There is something you may be able to point me in the right direction: I am trying to get boundary coordinates right for {{Location map Kingdom of Hungary}} and I naively used the Croatian map, but Modrus-Fiume seems to have expanded a bit and Lika-Krbava is not the southern extent of Croatia (as it was for Kingdom of Hungary) so those coords are basically bollox. They do not have to be very precise, only to one decimal point, so if you happen to know of a town or mountain or something in those places that I could get a good fix off of that would be great. I have tried searching but cocked it up, I will continue to refine it (currently Budapest comes out too far northeast) but if you had a good e.g. seaside resort it would save my just doing it by brute force.

Very best wishes Si Trew (talk) 09:38, 11 December 2009 (UTC)

Thanks by the way for your very useful edit summaries. It makes a great deal of difference when it is done that way, in good faith one then accepts the edit without needing to check. THe section on the battle will be added shortly. We could not do this in a sandbox etc. cos we wanted to preserve the edit history, for the little that was there. Si Trew (talk) 12:45, 11 December 2009 (UTC)
On the other hand, if you are a deletionist who simply marks things that need improvement without actually adding any content, and does not reply to queries about your edits, then I have no time for you and will just get on with making Wikipedia better. Si Trew (talk)
Thanks for that. I would not expect usually a reply so quickly, so it just caught me by surprise you had assessed etc. so quickly. Of course, quite rightly, the articles are assessed differently from different perspectives. We are stuffing in the battle now. I've anglicised the battle maps (and at the other articles too) which does not help you much, I expect, in Croat, I have blank versions after deleting the text and finessing the rivers etc that they covered, if that is any use to you. Later I will probably make a new SVG version where the text is on a separate layer, but right now we are concentrating on translating the content. Si Trew (talk) 13:04, 11 December 2009 (UTC)

Klapa Fa Lindo

Hi Gregor B. Just did a new article- Klapa Fa Lindo. Any chance of a copyedied, hope this is Ok? Hope you had a good Xmas. Sir Floyd (talk) 01:45, 30 December 2009 (UTC)

Re: Croatian presidential election, 2009–2010

I know, but I figured that the GA review backlog is long enough for this to happen naturally :) And the article as it is complies with GA standards better than some existing ones, even with the implicit volatility. --Joy [shallot] (talk) 13:00, 31 December 2009 (UTC)
