Actually yes; "gummy bears" as they're called here are fairly popular in the U.S. Hephaestos

I didn't know this. User:DavidLevinson created Gummi Bear some minutes after my (and your) comment. You guys are really quick! :-) --Kurt Jansson 03:48 Apr 23, 2003 (UTC)

I thought you might be interested in the opinion poll going on now at Talk:Clitoris. MB 18:01 9 Jul 2003 (UTC)


I've for long (a year, actually) been itched by the way Wikipedia-links are done with often sloppy distinctions between nationality, citizenship and ethnicity (with regard to persons) and also between nations and countries. This is particularly obvious in the case of people or entities that are denoted as German. A link to the Federal Republic of Germany is often outright unhistorical and wrong, but this has until now been the most usual.

Therefore I'm considering an article on Germans, which I've started at User:Ruhrjung/Germans. I would wish to avoid too much of edit wars after having started to link to the article. In particular, I would not wish to see the current disputes over German-Polish matters automatically extend also to this article, why I kindly ask you for comments now, in advance, in order to try to find wordings acceptable to as many as possible of concerned wikipedians.

I look forward to your comments at User talk:Ruhrjung/Germans.

Article Licensing[edit]

Hi, I've started a drive to get users to multi-license all of their contributions that they've made to either (1) all U.S. state, county, and city articles or (2) all articles, using the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike (CC-by-sa) v1.0 and v2.0 Licenses or into the public domain if they prefer. The CC-by-sa license is a true free documentation license that is similar to Wikipedia's license, the GFDL, but it allows other projects, such as WikiTravel, to use our articles. Since you are among the top 2000 Wikipedians by edits, I was wondering if you would be willing to multi-license all of your contributions or at minimum those on the geographic articles. Over 90% of people asked have agreed. For More Information:

To allow us to track those users who muli-license their contributions, many users copy and paste the "{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}" template into their user page, but there are other options at Template messages/User namespace. The following examples could also copied and pasted into your user page:

Option 1
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions, with the exception of my user pages, as described below:


Option 2
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions to any [[U.S. state]], county, or city article as described below:

Or if you wanted to place your work into the public domain, you could replace "{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}" with "{{MultiLicensePD}}". If you only prefer using the GFDL, I would like to know that too. Please let me know what you think at my talk page. It's important to know either way so no one keeps asking. -- Ram-Man (comment| talk)


How do queries work? I would like to find the top 20 new users, but dont know how. I have the query, but dont know how to implement it.

SELECT user_name, COUNT(*) FROM user, cur WHERE user_id=cur_user GROUP BY user_id ORDER BY user_id DESC LIMIT 20

Sorry, I don't think I can help you, but take a look at meta:Database queries on MediaWiki and Wikipedia:Database queries. --Kurt Jansson 20:08, 18 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Berlin burial[edit]

Please can you tell me how to find the burial place in Berlin of John Arbuthnott, 8th Viscount of Arbuthnott ? - Kittybrewster 09:14, 7 December 2006 (UTC)


Hallo, I fixed the redirect :) And then came to your user page to be surprised! Wow you're the president of Germany! I learn German as well, learnt for now 6 years. Phgao 06:35, 14 October 2007 (UTC)

Eigentlich war ich auch in Berlin; ich hatte in Frohnau gewohnt und dort in einer Schule in Tegel gegangen. Phgao 06:42, 14 October 2007 (UTC)
Hallo Phgao! Danke, ich hatte den Redirect nebenbei angelegt, der Typo war mir gar nicht aufgefallen.
Ich wohne schon einige Jahre in Kreuzberg, aber nach Frohnau bin ich bisher noch nicht gekommen :-) --Kurt Jansson 07:38, 14 October 2007 (UTC)
