A welcome from Master of Puppets[edit]

Hello, Limetom, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions; I hope you like the place and decide to stay. We're glad to have you in our community! Here are a few good links for newcomers:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Though we all make goofy mistakes, here is what Wikipedia is not. If you have any questions or concerns, don't hesitate to see the help pages or add a question to the village pump. The Community Portal can also be very useful.

Happy editing!

P.S. Feel free to leave a message on my talk page if you need help with anything or simply wish to say hello. :) MoppEr Speak! 05:09, 6 May 2006 (UTC)

Also, thanks for expressing interest in Esperanza; however, you don't meet the membership requirements yet. Feel free to try again in a while. :) MoppEr Speak! 05:09, 6 May 2006 (UTC)
I now meet the requirements and am a member, for those wondering about this seeming contradiction. --Limetom 18:39, 31 August 2006 (UTC)

Calidissima?[edit]

"Malum grammaticam mea culpa est" is not very indicative of a calidissima locutor. Fortasse, you would change it to something like, "me mala paenitet grammatica mea" or something that is at least grammatical, before calling yourself a calidissima...

Your user page[edit]

Well, you could always plagarize mine. Some people like it...just take a peak at the templates on my page, and see if they work for you. - LA @ 06:52, 30 August 2006 (UTC)

Re: Kashimashi userboxes[edit]

Ah wow, thanks for telling me. The reason I was reguarly edited that article is because I love the series, anime and manga. I may just make my own Kashimashi userbox now. :) -- (十八|talk) 06:56, 31 August 2006 (UTC)

Back, and I've made one of my own. Can be seen here. -- (十八|talk) 07:23, 31 August 2006 (UTC)
Yeah, I realized that too about the order of the kana, but I was trying to duplicate the official logo seen at www.kasimasi.com. -- (十八|talk) 07:35, 31 August 2006 (UTC)
Thanks for your input on the matter, but I like the way my userbox came out since, again, I was trying to duplicate the official logo to the best of my ability without actually using it in the userbox since copyrighted material can't be used in userboxes (I was told). I could try though to make a definate likeness of it using MS Paint...hmm, I think I'll try that now and get back to you. :) -- (十八|talk) 18:26, 31 August 2006 (UTC)

September Esperanza Newsletter[edit]

Program Feature: Barnstar Brigade
Here in Wikipedia there are hundreds of wikipedians whose work and efforts go unappreciated. One occasionally comes across editors who have thousands of good edits, but because they may not get around as much as others, their contributions and hard work often go unnoticed. As Esperanzians we can help to make people feel appreciated, be it by some kind words or the awarding of a Barnstar. This is where the Barnstar Brigade comes in. The object of this program is to seek out the people which deserve a Barnstar, and help them feel appreciated. With your help, we can recognize more dedicated editors!
What's New?
September elections are upon us! Anyone wishing to be a part of the Advisory Council may list themselves as a candidate from 18 September until 24 September, with the voting taking place from 25 September to 30 September. Those who wish to help with the election staff should also list themselves!
Appreciation Week, a program currently in development, now has its own subpage! Share your good ideas on how to make it awesome there!
The Esperanza front page has been redesigned! Many thanks to all who worked hard on it.
Many thanks to MiszaBot, courtesy of Misza13, for delivering the newsletter.
  1. The proposals page has been updated, with some proposals being archived.
  2. Since the program in development Appretiaion week is getting lots of good ideas, it now has its own subpage.
  3. The September 2006 Council elections will open for nominations on 18 September 2006. The voting will run from 25 September 2006 until 30 September 2006. If you wish to be a candidate or a member of the elections staff, please list yourself!
  4. The new Esperanza front page design has but put up - many thanks to all who worked on it!
  5. TangoTango has written a script for a bot that will list new members of Esperanza, which will help those who welcome new Esperanzains greatly!

Although having the newsletter appear on everyone's userpage is desired, this may not be ideal for everyone. If, in the future, you wish to receive a link to the newsletter, rather than the newsletter itself, you may add yourself to Wikipedia:Esperanza/Newsletter/Opt Out List.

Concerning P.O.D. article and User:The Crying Orc[edit]

I've noticed that you have some disagreements with this user; so do I, and at least one other person does as well. Checking his edit history, most of his edits have an anti-Christian bias, and almost all of his edits are unproductive. If I may, I would like you to direct you to WP:RFI, where this user is apparently "standing trial". It would be nice if you could add your two cents to the discussion. I'm glad I'm not alone in this. EdGl 21:28, 18 October 2006 (UTC)

Warnings[edit]

You are following me around and reverting my good-faith edits to articles, often without explanation. You are also posting notes in places where I am soliciting assistance (I see you 'Christian metalheads' are quite fine with doing that) telling people I am editing in bad faith. Please stop. You are violating WP:STALK, since it is by no means established that I am going against policy in my editing here. Here's some more reading matter for you:

Please stop. If you continue to violate Wikipedia's NPOV policy by adding commentary and your personal analysis into articles, you will be blocked from editing Wikipedia.

Wikipedia guidelines dictate that you assume good faith in dealing with other editors. Please stop being uncivil to your fellow editors, and assume that they are here to improve Wikipedia. Thank you. The Crying Orc 17:59, 19 October 2006 (UTC)

Fair enough, apology accepted. Primarily, I am concerned with being accused of acting in bad faith. Actual content disputes can be resolved amiably, I am sure. But if my edits are simply dismissed on other grounds, we can never get round to sensibly discussing content. I just signed up and have been accused of being a vandal, which I am not (I'm closer to being a goth), so I am a little uptight.
I appreciate the manner in which you took the Christian metal article in your stride, and edited it to conform with a more balanced, verifiable ideal. The Crying Orc 18:48, 19 October 2006 (UTC)

November Esperanza Newsletter[edit]

Program Feature: Admin Coaching (needs coaches!)
Admin Coaching needs coaches!!! If you are an administrator, or even a generally experienced user, do consider signing up to be a coach.

Admin Coaching, now being coordinated by HighwayCello, is a program for people who want help learning some of the more subtle aspects of Wikipedia policy and culture. People are matched with experienced users who are willing to offer coaching. The program is designed for people who have figured out the basics of editing articles; they're not newcomers any more, but they might want some help in learning new roles. In this way, Esperanza would help keep hope alive for Wikipedia because we would always be grooming the next generation of admins.

What's New?
The Tutorial Drive is a new Esperanza program! In an effort to make complicated processes on Wikipedia easier for everyone, Esperanza working to create and compile a list of tutorials about processes here on Wikipedia. Consider writing one!
A discussion on how Esperanza relates to the encyclopedia has been started; please add your thoughts.
Many thanks to MiszaBot, courtesy of Misza13, for delivering the newsletter.
  • The list of proposed programs has been updated, with some proposals being archived.
  • There is now a new program: the Tutorial Drive! Consider writing a tutorial on something you are good at doing on Wikipedia.
  • The suggestion of adding a cohesive look to all the Esperanza pages is being considered; join the discussion if you are interested!
  • In order to make a useful interlanguage welcome template, those involved in translation projects will be asked what English Wikipedia policies are most important and confusing to editors coming from other language Wikipedias.
  • A discussion of Esperanza's role in Wikipedia is being held, with all thoughts of all Esperanzians wanted!
  • Shreshth91 informed everyone that he will be leaving the Esperanza council as life is rather busy; his spot will be filled by the runner up from the last election, HighwayCello.

Image:Sinaibeach band.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Sinaibeach band.jpg. I notice the 'image' page specifies that the image is being used under fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first fair use criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed image could reasonably be found or created. If you believe this image is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the image description page and edit it to add {{Replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original Replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace the fair use image by finding a freely licensed image of its subject or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our fair use criteria. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that any fair use images which are replaceable by free-licensed alternatives will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. --Chowbok 23:09, 9 November 2006 (UTC)

Kashimashi[edit]

Hi. I reverted it back to just 'Girl meets Girl' because that's how John Sirabella referred to it in the original forum post that was the source for the Anime News Network article. I would agree that this isn't definitive and don't have a problem with the title being removed until someone can find a better source. For reference the original thread seems to have gone, the best I could find is a copy of one of the posts: http://www.aintitcool.com/node/30642 Lipperman 03:18, 12 January 2007 (UTC)

Wierd sentences and links in Culture[edit]

This article has numerous flaws, including English mistakes and wierd, out of place, non-capitalized sentences. Look at the end of the article to see what I am talking about. I have tried to fix this, but the changes have been marked as vandalism, by you, with a nice 'rv vandalism' in the history.

Also what is the 'link title' link to example.com doing at the top? Can I delete this without being flagged as a vandal?

Dude, thanks a lot for leaving me feeling encouraged about my first changes to wikipedia. I dont know what I deleted that upset you.

82.247.83.117 10:14, 31 January 2007 (UTC)

Hi

You have the wrong guy. I did not do the edits you were talking about. There are two very different versions of the Culture article in the history, one good one and one bad one. My changes were minor. I did not remove source material, pictures, references, or anything. Moreover, I edited the bad version. So its pretty rough to be called for vandalism for that. I changed spelling mistakes and the symantic changes were minor. Its pretty rough to constantly have wikipedia messages calling vandalism every time I use the pedia, which is often. Be careful next time you cry vandalism! Its offensive! 82.247.83.117 21:38, 4 February 2007 (UTC)

Lady Aleena, a damsel in distress[edit]

Limetorn...It was so good to see on your user page that you have an interest in anime and manga, I don't. However, I am trying to go through lists of films made in Japan, called Sentai, which I can't make heads or tails out of since the series seem so bloody complicated. Would you be willing to help me sort through a mess of them, so that I can get them straightened out? - LA @ 07:53, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

Limetorn...I am currently trying to clean up various film series lists. One those lists I found these series. They look like they are all big series that have just been broken up into little sub-series. Could you give them a look and tell me if they are all seperate series, or if I could just lump them together all on one list (for each heading)? I would be eternally grateful. Then, if that doesn't knock you out, what do you know about the Godzilla series? - LA @ 08:20, 18 February 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for taking a look. From what I gathered, those are just 3 series broken into smaller pieces. I will make them all big and place them accordingly. - LA @ 09:20, 18 February 2008 (UTC)
You want to look at my Godzilla table and tell me what you think? - LA @ 09:21, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

explanation about the use of laryngeals has probably been dropped because the page is being vandalized.[edit]

Here is correct info

The Proto-Indo-European religion page on Wikipedia is still being vandalized by religious bigots. There's no point in advising Wikipedia of the situation, because apparently they condone religious bigotry, but you can help by copying in the current version 070708 of the page, brought to you today by David Bigot Bachmann. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.32.223.31 (talk)

You might note that at least one of your recent edits, such as the one you made to Variation and Evolution in Plants, also introduced some extraneous text around some numerical characters.

Okinawa phonology[edit]

Hi,

A google search for okinawa phonology brings up this page of yours as the first or second result. It might be a good idea to put a noindex template on it so it doesn't come up in search pages until you are ready to put it into the regular okinawa language main page. XinJeisan (talk) 09:17, 10 March 2011 (UTC)

Translation help needed[edit]

Hey, I saw you mentioned at Wikipedia:Translators_available#Latin-to-English. Translation help needed for the articles Rus' people, Rus (name), Kievan Rus', Rus' Khaganate, and probably also Varangians and Annales Bertiniani.

Original Latin source: [1] (starting with "Venerunt etiam legati Graecorum a Theophilo imperatore directi, Theodosius videlicet, Calcedonensis metropolitanus episcopus, et Theophanius spatharius, ferentes cum donis imperatore dignis epistolam quos imperator quinto decimo Kalendas Iunii in Ingulenheim honorifice suscepit" on that page, and continuing AFAIK for two more pages).

The Latin source I need help on is the Annales Bertiniani, which is a collection of Frankish annals that was completed in 882 AD. The issue behind this is the historical first mention of the Rus' people, which was a Norse tribe, also known as the Varangians from Sweden that, starting in the 9th century from Novgorod and Kiev (Kievan Rus') and allegedly under the leadership of their chieftain Rurik (or rather RøRikR in Old Norse) conquered portions of the Baltics and today's northwestern Russia, a realm which was soon known as the Rus' Khaganate (with the result that lots of placenames, such as Novgorod, actually have an Old Norse etymology). Eventually, the Rus' Khaganate, even though the Norse ruling elite was but small and soon assimilated to the Balto-Slavic population, became the nucleus and namegiver for modern Russia.

The thing is, this so-called Normannic theory is still kinda controversial, as modern Russian scholars often regard it as a modern romantic nationalist myth originating with late-19th century Pan-Germanism. What the Russians are saying is that the original Rus were actually Slavs. Now, these 9th century Annales Bertiniani seem to be a rather authoritative, and, given their time of origination, pretty concise, source to refute these Russian scholars.

What I get of this Latin text is only the gist of it. Apparently, a delegation of Rus people were interrogated by Frankish Emperor Louis the Pious at Ingelheim am Rhein in 839 AD, where they said that:

  • the name of their tribe was Rus (spelled "Rhos" in this Latin text, maybe via Byzantine Greek translation? As far as I can tell, a letter from Byzantine Emperor Theophilos or Michael III is mentioned),
  • they originally came from Sweden
  • but had settled in what is northwestern Russia today (I find this information several times in modern sources, attributing it to the Annales Bertiniani, but *WHAT THE HECK* was their contemporary name for "northwestern Russia"?), and
  • that they had switched to calling their chieftains chacanus now.

Chacanus is Latin for Khagan, a title they had likely borrowed from contact with the Avars while conquering from the Baltic coast southward. It's why their realm in centuries to come was to be known as the Rus' Khaganate.

But what I need for good sourcing is an exact translation of portions relevant to the informations bulleted above. Original Latin text at [2] (starting with "Venerunt etiam legati Graecorum a Theophilo imperatore directi, Theodosius videlicet, Calcedonensis metropolitanus episcopus, et Theophanius spatharius, ferentes cum donis imperatore dignis epistolam quos imperator quinto decimo Kalendas Iunii in Ingulenheim honorifice suscepit" on that page, and continuing AFAIK for two more pages). --79.193.34.87 (talk) 02:59, 29 August 2011 (UTC)

Punctuated equilibrium[edit]

Hi. I see that several years ago you added Dixon's theory of punctuated equilibrium to this page. I can't claim to know a ton about the theory, how would you feel if this had it's own page?
