Name of Czechia / The Czech Republic[edit]

Your repeated attempts to undo a very minor, and non-disruptive edit are unnecessary. It is clear that 'unquestioned' is not true and 'generally accepted' is a more accurate and less divisive statement. Czechia has been suggested as an alternative to The Czech Republic. It is not short form - it is an alternative. The issue is not unquestioned - it has been questioned, notably by the leader of that country. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Amphibio (talkcontribs) 17:51, 16 October 2015 (UTC)

Australia - East Timor[edit]

I'm wondering as to why you wouldn't like to change the information about East Timor in the Australian continent? You'd have to change the graphic of the article, etc. So please, if you are successful or anyone else is confident to do so, then please proceed, so we can have the right information.

Re: Eastern Europe[edit]

Find a source and I'll be okay with it. At the present, your source only says a small part of it is in "Continental Europe". Eastern Europe is a geopolitical term, and just because its stated as being part of Continental Europe, does not make it Eastern Europe... i.e. I agree that Kazakhstan is partly in Europe, but I don't agree that it fits into Eastern Europe. --Buffer v2 (talk) 00:14, 14 November 2008 (UTC)

It is in the eastern part of the continent of Europe. Therefore, it is in Eastern Europe by pure geographical definition. The article is not just about a geopolitical term, and even the geopolitical term has multiple possible meanings.Khajidha (talk) 15:23, 14 November 2008 (UTC)
Whoops, just noticed that the article is a geopolitical article. For some reason I thought it was just a general Eastern European article, I'll remove the material myself.Khajidha (talk) 15:26, 14 November 2008 (UTC)

Marvel comics mutates[edit]

Dear Khajidha,

Actually, I think this article should be called "List of Marvel Comics mutates", but I don't know how to change it. Do you? I'd appreciate it if you could do it. In the meantime, I'll create a redirect page of that name. Rosencomet (talk) 19:48, 17 June 2009 (UTC)

The TF Project is now semi-active, but there's not much consensus going on outside the deletions. NotARealWord (talk) 16:23, 10 September 2010 (UTC)

I don't think I'll be active with this project. I don't really think Wikipedia should have articles for most (almost all) TFs, anymore than it should have articles for every character in every Shakespearean play. Basically one article giving a general overview of the toys (ALL of them), one giving a general overview of the TV shows (ALL of them), one giving a general overview of the comics (ALL of them), and one giving a general overview of the movies is all that is really needed. To the real world outside TF fandom even such high profile characters as Optimus Prime and Megatron are mere details with no real discernable affect on the world apart from that of the show as a whole. People interested in DETAILED information should be directed to a specialized reference dealing ONLY with TFs. --Khajidha (talk) 19:27, 10 September 2010 (UTC)
I know that. On the project talk page, we're trying to decide just what is fancruft. I don't think much consensus can be reached with just four people, which is why I'm certain we need help. NotARealWord (talk) 21:28, 10 September 2010 (UTC)

I don't appreciate being told about writing clear sentences. If you can't pull your head in, a public project such as Wikipedia is not suitable for you. For future reference, it's polite to refer to someone by name rather than "he / she / that man who's still standing here" when that person is in your conversation and you're talking about them to others.

Africa map[edit]

Hello ! You did a mistake on this map : [[Africa-regions.png. Zimbabwe is in East Africa, so it must be in orange and not in red. See this link : Thank you very much. Mightymights (talk) 22:44, 30 July 2011 (UTC)

I was going by the discussion previously on the page. I realized some time later that the UN definition actually put it in E Africa and not S Africa, but had not been back to fix it. Thank you for taking care of it for me. --Khajidha (talk) 02:46, 31 July 2011 (UTC)

Mediation on the map of continental models[edit]

Hi. In case you're interested... Aridd (talk) 00:31, 17 December 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for your comment. I've moved the issue here (onto Commons). Aridd (talk) 22:42, 17 December 2011 (UTC)

Well, the creation of that second map is helpful. The problem is, it's still wrong in its current shape, and (in my view) shouldn't be used as such. The islands would need to be switched from pink to grey, for example. Aridd (talk) 17:15, 20 December 2011 (UTC)

The other map shouldn't be used to illustrate an article that uses terms that are not used on the map. If an article talks about the continent of Australia, the map should label the continent as Australia. I'm not sure how to edit the image or I'd change it myself. --Khajidha (talk) 18:04, 20 December 2011 (UTC)
I would also edit it myself if I knew how. I've requested that it be done (i.e., that the islands be switched to grey). In the meantime, neither of those maps is really appropriate for the "continents" article. The best would indeed be to have a correct map displaying Australia. Rather than having to choose between a correct map which doesn't use the same name as the lead section of the article, or an incorrect map which provides erroneous "information" to readers (rather problematic for an encyclopedia!). As it is, I'm somewhat concerned that people will look at the article and map and go away believing that the name "Australia" can apply to the entire area in pink. Aridd (talk) 13:26, 23 December 2011 (UTC)

March 2012[edit]

Your recent editing history at Republic of Kosovo shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. Being involved in an edit war can result in you being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

To avoid being blocked, instead of reverting please consider using the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection. STOP! This article is under 1RR parole per week and are required to discuss any content reversions on the article talk page. Be careful, Khajidha! WhiteWriterspeaks 21:32, 2 March 2012 (UTC)

It was not my intention to edit war, my first reversion was only to restore the previously established English variant on the page. I did so assuming that the GAYousefSaanei was simply unaware of the consensus about using British English on the page. After he (?) reverted my revert the first time I also added a note to his talk page informing him of the standard. His edit summaries when reverting my edits, however seem very argumentative. I note that he reverted me again after my second reversion, an act that has since been undone by User:Seb az86556. I have no desire to edit war and am stepping back from the article for now. --Khajidha (talk) 23:42, 2 March 2012 (UTC)


Well, actually you did removed some links, but than there was a link just like the same you removed in the sentence before. Why not make yourself an usepage? People with userpages in red links often vandalize article. If you do intend to contribute seriously, make that to a blue link, for your own sake :) Anything you do on your userpage will turn it into a blue. Hafspajen (talk) 14:21, 15 September 2013 (UTC)

Well, I did separate that last clause into its own sentence. If you look closely, no links were removed but the title "Postern of Fate" was repeated in the new version. The previous version just seemed horrendously clunky. I've been here for a few years, I just don't have much to say about myself. --Khajidha (talk) 14:43, 15 September 2013 (UTC)

Hey dude,you there right now? D80'ss (talk) 15:36, 23 June 2014 (UTC)


And then you worry? You what it touches? This is us - Ukrainian - should be more offended that the occuppants and their descendants and, unfortunately, ordinary Russians who don't know the true history Ukrainian-Moscovia's relations - because Ukraine was repeatedly occupied "brotherly" Muscovy-Russia - did not realize that it can not continue to remain a Russian name. That they are "struggling" to everything remained as before - that was further Russian name of KYIV.--Бучач-Львів (talk) 14:36, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
I don't care what name you use for my country or any of the cities in it. It's your language, it is none of my business. What can it POSSIBLY matter to you what I call your country or city in my language? It is as ridiculous as you telling me I can no longer use the word "blue" for that color. Basically, English uses Kiev for the city and you need to pull up your big girl panties and deal with it. If you can't, that's just too bad but it will change absolutely nothing about the English language. --Khajidha (talk) 15:52, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
Basically, English uses Kiev - russian name of the Ukrainian city of Kyiv. Whew. Because so used. Used not distinguish Ukrainian from Russian. Аnd some Russian authors in English wiki laugh with you, and we.--Бучач-Львів (talk) 13:29, 30 August 2014 (UTC) Where you are born? What is your nationality?
As I said on your talk page, I am an American. Before you ask, I am of German, Scottish, and Irish ancestry.--Khajidha (talk) 13:35, 30 August 2014 (UTC)
And, no, English uses the English name Kiev. That it was derived from the transliteration of the Russian name is immaterial and irrelevant. It has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with whether we can distinguish Russian and Ukranian and everything to do with the fact that it is ACTUAL ENGLISH LANGUAGE USAGE. Kyiv is, at best, a rare variant in English. --Khajidha (talk) 17:37, 4 September 2014 (UTC)
if you - and like you - do not understand basic things in Ukrainian - Kiev, and Kiev, - is in Russian, then what can you say? Truth to tell you I will not, because you are so far from it, as the Russians of Ukrainian.--Бучач-Львів (talk) 10:54, 7 September 2014 (UTC)
How can you not understand the simple fact that Kiev is NOT a Russian word, it is an English one. The Russian word is Киев. The English language will continue to use the English name. --Khajidha (talk) 14:50, 7 September 2014 (UTC)
Even if Kiev is an English word, it was derived from Russian. Just because a word is used in the English language doesn't necessarily mean that it is an English word; or perhaps you have not heard of loan words? Perhaps you should consider what others have to say before always thinking that you are right? You are as good as a representative of the US and your attitude does not reflect well on your country. Suppoiued (talk) 11:09, 28 December 2014 (UTC)
Once a loan word is adopted the receiving language is free to do with it as it wills. The derivation of a word is not necessarily the same as the use of a word. I do consider what others have to say, but what is done in other languages can logically have no bearing on what is done in English. The attitude that ones language norms must be followed by other people's languages is what truly reflects badly on someone. --Khajidha (talk) 13:26, 28 December 2014 (UTC)

Formal mediation has been requested[edit]

The Mediation Committee has received a request for formal mediation of the dispute relating to "United States". As an editor concerned in this dispute, you are invited to participate in the mediation. Mediation is a voluntary process which resolves a dispute over article content by facilitation, consensus-building, and compromise among the involved editors. After reviewing the request page, the formal mediation policy, and the guide to formal mediation, please indicate in the "party agreement" section whether you agree to participate. Because requests must be responded to by the Mediation Committee within seven days, please respond to the request by 25 December 2014.

Discussion relating to the mediation request is welcome at the case talk page. Thank you.
Message delivered by MediationBot (talk) on behalf of the Mediation Committee. 15:52, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

Request for mediation accepted[edit]

The request for formal mediation of the dispute concerning United States, in which you were listed as a party, has been accepted by the Mediation Committee. The case will be assigned to an active mediator within two weeks, and mediation proceedings should begin shortly thereafter. Proceedings will begin at the case information page, Wikipedia:Requests for mediation/United States, so please add this to your watchlist. Formal mediation is governed by the Mediation Committee and its Policy. The Policy, and especially the first two sections of the "Mediation" section, should be read if you have never participated in formal mediation. For a short guide to accepted cases, see the "Accepted requests" section of the Guide to formal mediation. You may also want to familiarise yourself with the internal Procedures of the Committee.

As mediation proceedings begin, be aware that formal mediation can only be successful if every participant approaches discussion in a professional and civil way, and is completely prepared to compromise. Please contact the Committee if anything is unclear.

Copied from my talk page[edit]

Not sure if there is a single reference that would cover the entire history of WrestleMania, but each individual one is listed on the WrestleMania page. The first one obviously had no number, of the rest WrestleMania 2, WrestleMania 13, WrestleMania 2000, WrestleMania 21, WrestleMania 22, and WrestleMania 23 did not use Roman numerals while Wrestlemania X-Seven and Wrestlemania X8 used a hybrid form. Two others listed on the WrestleMania page as having unique names are actually linked to pages that use Roman numerals. --Khajidha (talk) 03:02, 5 February 2015 (UTC)

Actually if WrestleMania's use of Roman Numerals has been a bit inconsistant (in the sense that they sometimes use them and sometimes use "standard" numerals instead) then this may in fact not be very notable - most modern uses of Roman Numerals are like that in fact. Think of (analogue) clock faces, for instance - ordinary numbers are actually much more common, and sometimes we don't use actual numbers at all. Perhaps we need a little note at the head of the section? Although this kind of generalisation is even harder to get a speciifc reference for. --Soundofmusicals (talk) 22:14, 5 February 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, I considered removing it because it wasn't consistent. I'd say we either note the inconsistency or take it off entirely. It just seems wrong leaving it alone as it gives the impression that ALL WrestleManias have used Roman numerals. --Khajidha (talk) 23:23, 5 February 2015 (UTC)
Have a look at the current text: after suggesting "a little note at the head of the section" I charged in and added one myself. The point is that WrestleMania is no different in this respect from other "modern uses" - only a few of them use Roman Numerals to the extent of excluding "ordinary" numbers altogether. If we went into details for WrestleMania we'd need to treat the "errors & exceptions" for the other applications too. Just not worth it. --Soundofmusicals (talk) 00:47, 6 February 2015 (UTC)

Bilingual name[edit]

Information icon Hello, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. I noticed that you recently added commentary to an article, Bilingual name. While Wikipedia welcomes editors' opinions on an article and how it could be changed, these comments are more appropriate for the article's accompanying talk page. If you post your comments there, other editors working on the same article will notice and respond to them, and your comments will not disrupt the flow of the article. However, keep in mind that even on the talk page of an article, you should limit your discussion to improving the article. Article talk pages are not the place to discuss opinions of the subject of articles, nor are such pages a forum. Thank you. --Bamyers99 (talk) 19:24, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
