Petaluma article[edit]

Hey, you asked if I could look over the Petaluma article because it didn't seem like the references were correctly converted. I checked again, and it may seem like it isn't complete, but it actually is. For example, in the source of the article, it looks like there is nothing, just the </ references> tag. But that is how it should be; the references are now embedded in the actual article text, and that tag simply tells it where to put all of the references. Also, the two references you thought were missing are simply duplicate references to a previous citation, so they are only mentioned by name.

You can read more about it here: Cite.php

Hebrew grammar — thanks[edit]

Thanks for your fixes at Hebrew grammar#Subordinate clauses. :-) Ruakh 04:21, 27 August 2006 (UTC)


Hi Jeremy

Nice improvements to my 1a article and exercises. I sorely need feedback about that little project, so don't hesitate. Does the section on listing technique work? It was an experiment—to my knowledge, no one has previously isolated this as a set of skills.

I hope you improve Hebrew grammar; like most WP articles on grammar, it has problems (I can tell this without knowing a single word of Hebrew).

If you're inclined, we're short of good reviewers at WP:FAR (and, of course, at WP:FAC). FAR is a more intimate group of about five regulars, who are trying to cope with a huge throughput of FAs that need to be improved, on pain of the ultimate course of action, delisting. So you're welcome to drop in occasionally (or often) to check out what's on the boil. We even have an ongoing "urgents" box that you can post anywhere you like for your convenience. {{User:Tony1/FAR urgents}}. Tony 04:32, 27 August 2006 (UTC) Smile.png

OK, I'm keen to know what you think. You have strategic distance, of course!

I'm thinking of moving the list section to the end, so that if it's a turn-off, at least the reader will have covered the more digestable stuff first. Um ... ways of making it more approachable: split it into several sections? Trim it? Put the common problems and advice before the basic A, B and C categories? Tony 10:51, 27 August 2006 (UTC)

Not too far at all—thank you very much! Please treat the rest of the text in that way, if/when you have the time. Most of your changes gave me that frustrating feeling of "Why didn't I see that?", althoughI did partially reverse your change to the lime, sugar and water bit.

I toyed with the idea of sequestering the boxed list types and examples into a daughter article, and just summarising the gist of them here. Still unsure.


Hi. The article on HIV is currently on FAC review. One of the issues that has arisen is the need for a copyedit. User:Tony1 suggested that you might be willing to have look over it as it does need a pair of fresh eyes. It's a really important article that we want to ride on WP's reach into the developed and developing worlds, and a linguistic edit is required, so don't be put off by the medical content. Your fresh eyes would be of great value at this mature stage of the FAC process. Thanks. --Bob 19:34, 15 September 2006 (UTC)


Thank you, thank you for fixing it! I wasn't aware that there was a problem, but I see now that this is required. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Tony1 (talkcontribs) 07:00, 8 April 2007 (UTC). Tony 07:01, 8 April 2007 (UTC)

It may be my browser (Firefox) or my operating system (Mac OS X), but seeing as you probably use both of these as well, it's a mystery!

Looks great. I use OSX and Safari. Thank you indeed. Tony 05:22, 9 April 2007 (UTC)

Kim Il-sung[edit]

Thank you for your observations. Actually I can give you a prominent example of a place named after a leader. Believe it or not the city of Zhongshan is technically named after Chinese revolutionary leader Sun Yat-sen, and Ho Chi Minh City is obviously named after the Vietnamese leader of the same name. Generally, however, the practice is not common at all in East Asia in general, and in many places it is vice-versa, where people are named after the places they are born (especially in Japan). The phenomenon in the West, however, is that places, airports, landmarks, etc. are often named after former leaders. Imperial tradition in East Asia deems that names of the rulers are generally considered sacred and therefore cannot be uttered. Interesting story that Xuanye, the Kangxi Emperor of the Qing Dynasty had the Beijing Xuanwu Gate change its name to Shenwu Gate because "Xuan" violated the national taboo on writing and uttering his personal name. As a result contrary to the Soviet Union (with cities such as Stalingrad and Leningrad), China, Japan, and South Korea, be it under Imperial or Communist dominance, has never named a city, or even a landmark or airport, after one of its leaders. I hope that clears up any misunderstandings. If I did not present this in the right way all the responsibility is mine. Feel free to add the tag. Colipon+(T) 09:32, 14 April 2007 (UTC)

If you haven't already, I think you'll find List_of_places_named_after_people an interesting read. And then there is List_of_eponyms_of_airports and even List_of_eponyms_of_stadiums. China, Korea, and Japan (the geographical region considered as "East Asia") do not appear in any of these articles (except for maybe the anecdote here and there).
