Gerbera jamesonii[edit]

In order to clear the way for the move, you could move the edit history (current page at Gerbera jamesonii to Gerbera Jamesonii, as the edit history needs to be kept for attribution purposes, so displacing it to the capitalized pagename would allow an historyless redirect to be overwritten by the merged article. -- 65.92.180.137 (talk) 00:49, 25 March 2013 (UTC)

February 2014[edit]

Hello, I'm Smtchahal. I noticed that you recently removed all content from Talk:Mekan, with this edit, without explaining why. In the future, it would be helpful to others if you described your changes to Wikipedia with an edit summary. If this was a mistake, don't worry, I restored the page's content. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks. Smtchahal (talk) 10:31, 8 February 2014 (UTC)

Fighting Veres[edit]

Concerning the Fighting Veres redirect which you tagged for speedy and which I declined speedy. Frankly, I would not bother pursue deletion, as Fighting Veres is a plausible redirect, as the title of a book about the Earls of Oxford. However, in the future, if you wish to seek deletion, take a look at WP:RfD which tells you how to list redirects for discussion. Also, if you think they may qualify for speedy deletion, take a look at WP:Speedy Deletion and scroll down to the two criteria concerning redirects R2 & R3. Generally speaking, however, redirects are considered cheap and unless they appear to be an obvious problem, they are generally just left as is. That seems to be the case for Fighting Veres.

@Safiel: could you add that book to the further reading section then? This isn't obvious at the moment. Holger1959 (talk) 21:55, 19 February 2014 (UTC)
Ok, I will see if I can find a good link for it. Safiel (talk) 21:57, 19 February 2014 (UTC)

Rettungsgasse[edit]

Hello! Rettungsgasse is "mentősáv" in Hungarian. It's applicable since September 1, 2012 on highways, according to "228/2012. (VIII. 23.) Korm. rendelet 5. § (5)."

Here's the statute on the official government homepage. It's on page 18557 (page 11 of the .pdf). ebi. (talk) 01:13, 8 September 2014 (UTC)

ebi., thank you very much! Holger1959 (talk) 01:35, 8 September 2014 (UTC)

Question for administrator[edit]

Today i reverted this (3 edits diff) and about the user i found IncidentArchive614. i think it would be good to delete the attack because it is combined with a personal name (notice: the photo of the person is already deleted on Commons). Can please someone have a look and think about deletion and maybe also about blocking this user? Holger1959 (talk) 00:13, 28 December 2014 (UTC)

I have deleted those revisions. In general, posting help requests when you want stuff hidden is not a good idea because it tends to increase visibility, at least in the short run. See WP:Revision deletion#How to request Revision Deletion, and oversighters (for really severe issues that should be unaccessible even to admins) are best contacted by email.

@Huon: thank you! Holger1959 (talk) 12:55, 28 December 2014 (UTC)

User:Wikirictor/sandbox[edit]

Hi! Thanks for your feedback. We had a chat on the Neanderthal talk page just recently concerning readability etc. We decided to clean up the article. I gave it a go and with the help of ·maunus we got that far. I'd be glad to get some critics, advice etc. Alles Gute Wikirictor (talk) 01:35, 16 October 2016 (UTC)

@Wikirictor: i only sorted images/categories on Commons in regard to the complex Neandertal area (geographically) adn corrected some (wrong/misidentified) image usages, so i can't really help with this specific paleo article. if you need images for the German Neanderthal objects, maybe i can help with descriptions/translations. There are some interesting images in c:Category:Exhibits in Neanderthal Museum, eg. File:Neanderthal Museum 02.jpg from the 2000 excavations (though i'm unsure if the image copyrights are ok because there are some legal issues with German museums at the moment).
