Hi there. When editing an article on Wikipedia there is a small field labeled "Edit summary" under the main edit-box. It looks like this:
Edit summary text box

The text written here will appear on the Recent changes page, in the page revision history, on the diff page, and in the watchlists of users who are watching that article. See m:Help:Edit summary for full information on this feature.

Filling in the edit summary field greatly helps your fellow contributors in understanding what you changed, so please always fill in the edit summary field. If you are adding a section, please do not just keep the previous section's header in the Edit summary field - please fill in your new section's name instead. Thank you.

For the table at Resen (city), you can use the infobox code, which will look something like the one at Struga. BalkanFever 23:31, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

Vardarska banovina[edit]

Sorry for this. I just saw a lot of annon edits and that the page looked awfully. I reverted everything up to Fut. Perf. I saw just now that one of the annons had removed the Banovina thing and that I have restored it with my revert. --Laveol T 18:09, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

It's alright. --Local hero 14:39, 6 April 2008 (UTC)


hi, i was reffered to you by user:laveol

i was just wondering how much you know about the egejski dialects ot makedonski???

and would you be interested in contributing to some articles??

thanx,PMK1 (talk) 11:54, 17 April 2008 (UTC)

Hello. The dialect of Macedonian I speak is very similar to the Resen/Prespa dialect of Macedonian. However, the dialect may be different in other areas, such as Solun. And yes, I would contribute as much as I can. --Local hero 15:44, 17 April 2008 (UTC)
Alright then if you were interested in creating an article from this page Dialects of the Macedonian language. Ima dolnoprespanski/lower prespan, kostur dialect, and maybe even solun/vodenski dialects???? so if you were interested if would make the page look a bit better. ps. i made the Struga dialect and Vevčani-Radοža dialect pages just by listening to how the family spoke compared to the standard, and i based the page on Prilep-Bitola dialect which MB has created, it is a good starting model. So if you were interested your contributions would be appreciated. PMK1 (talk)05:16, 19 April 2008 (UTC)
Who has made Vevčani-Radοža dialect? Do not be funny.. Be fair and thankful because of you I have made the dialects.--MacedonianBoy (talk) 18:11, 19 April 2008 (UTC)

Macedonians in Canada[edit]

Hi i was just wondering i knew much about the macedonians in canada, you are from that area so you might know? I was having some trouble because my knowledge of Macedonian Canadians was not the greatest. PMK1 (talk) 02:26, 15 June 2008 (UTC)

Actually, I have a lot of family in Toronto, so I do know a bit about Macedonian Canadians.--Local hero 01:47, 15 June 2008 (UTC)

Nuvola apps important.svg You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Republic of Macedonia. Note that the three-revert rule prohibits making more than three reversions on a single page within a 24 hour period. Additionally, users who perform a large number of reversions in content disputes may be blocked for edit warring, even if they do not technically violate the three-revert rule. If you continue, you may be blocked from editing. Please do not repeatedly revert edits, but use the talk page to work towards wording and content that gains a consensus among editors. If necessary, pursue dispute resolution. I believe you are right in this case, but being right is not in itself an excuse for edit warring JdeJ (talk) 06:54, 29 July 2008 (UTC)

Велиш на твојата страница дека Македонија неможе да напредува без да го смени името. 124 од 180 и четри од петте земји со право на вето (USA,UK,RU,Cina) во ООН веке ја признаа Македонија под уставно име, тоа е убедливо мнозинство. Да се потсетиме во ОН Грција е една членка како 180 други, нема право на вето и неможе да уценува. Потоа сите експерти се сложија дека и од легален аспект нема право да блокира едан земја или да захтева менување на име, неосновано и своеволно, то ест ако прашањето се изнесе пред Меѓународен Суд на Правдата, Грција нема аргументи. Еднаш кога Македонија ке влезе под уставно име во ОН, Грција ке неможе да го користи изговорот за името, за блокада при ЕУ и НАТО интеграциите. Alex Makedon (talk) 10:28, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

Грција нема право за вето во ОН, но има во НАТО и ЕУ. Како во април, Грција ја блокира Македонија, и истото ке прае во ЕУ. Тука во Америка, Барак Обама ке биди пресидателот, и тој е со Грција на спорот за името. Македонија има поголеми проблеми од спорот, како бедност и шиптарите. Поздрав. --Local hero 19:32, 3 October 2008 (UTC)


Jabuka, the village I was born, is the biggest Macedonian settlement outside Macedonia!

Hallo, local hero. Thank you for participating in the article of Jabuka. May I ask some questions? You wrote "Jabuka was colonized by 571 Macedonian families". Actually it was colonized by the Yugoslavian government with 571 Macedonian families. Does it sound better this way? Another question, could you pls pull some more photos from the German article into the English and the Macedonian ones? there won´t be any problems with the copyright, because I took all the photos.

Thans and hallo--Speidelj (talk) 15:21, 22 October 2008 (UTC)

Hey. I'm not exactly sure who colonized the town, I was just rewording it to make it sound better. So, I'll add what you said since you seem to have good knowledge of the town. And about the pictures, I am not too familiar with uploading, so maybe you should do it. --Local hero 20:13, 22 October 2008 (UTC)

Please, help me about the User:Illyriandescendant. He is promoting independent Kosovo ideas everywhere!! How we can ban, or block him? Any ideas??

Tadija (talk) 22:14, 30 December 2008 (UTC)

Ill tell u 1, stop messing with Kosovo Articles, Proud Albanian —Preceding undated comment was added at 22:16, 30 December 2008 (UTC).

Hello, Tadija! This guy will do everything he can to make sure that the word "Serbia" does not appear in any articles related to Kosovo. Personally, I do not support the independence of Kosovo. However, I feel that saying that something is in Kosovo does not imply that Kosovo is independent. I'm guessing you do not feel this way. So, I think we should put links to both Category:Mountains of Kosovo and Category:Mountains of Serbia, etc. As for blocking or banning the overly nationalistic user you speak of, there is nothing I can directly do about that. However, you can leave a message on an administrator's talkpage (Ev is probably the best choice for this particular issue) about why you think Illyriandescendant needs to be dealt with. Поздрав. --Local hero 22:51, 30 December 2008 (UTC)

About Puntori (from Albanian Wiki)[edit]

Hey! I want to make some complaints against Puntori, this crazy administrator from Albanian Wikipedia! Fancy! He blocked me! For what? I do not know... Also I have no idea what to do with him... He does not want to hear any constructive remark. Jesus! =( - Whiteroll (talk) 12:40, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

Hi! I think he just likes pretending that there is no other point of view on Kosovo's independence. I didn't expect that they would simply tone down the pro-Albanian POV on that article, because it is Albanian Wikipedia. As for reporting him, go ahead if you really want to. I'm not sure where they do that kind of stuff, though. -Local hero 15:33, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

Photo and article request[edit]

For some time, National Register of Historic Places listings in Detroit, Michigan has had an article and picture for every single property given on this list. This is an extremely rare status — maybe half a dozen other lists nationwide have all pictures (all of which have far fewer properties on the list), and I don't think that any of them have an article on each site. However, another site just got added to the list. Would you be willing/able to contribute at least a picture, and (if possible) an article, for the River Terrace Apartments? The address is 7700 E. Jefferson Ave., along the river east of downtown and perhaps ¼ mile east of the bridge to Belle Island. If you go, you shouldn't have trouble finding the building, as it's rather prominent — here's what it looks like on Google Maps Street View.

If you're not familiar with the National Register of Historic Places enough to want to write an article, could you simply get a picture? Although I'm not from Michigan, and although it's been a few years since I was last in the Detroit area, I can find enough data for a stub on this site. Nyttend (talk) 12:43, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

Hey, Tomica. I think you did a really good job with the article and you included a lot of good info. The only problems I can see are some grammatical mistakes. Even though I'm typically a Fox News viewer, I happened to be watching CNN and the commercial came on and I was surprised at how good it was. And yes, I do speak Macedonian pretty well but I do make mistakes frequently. Поздрав. --Local hero talk 23:52, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

Osamosvojeno narečje/Separate dialect[edit]

Local, ne vem če razumeš slovenščino. Osamosvojeno narečje je takšno narečje, katero izoblikuje lastni knjižni jezik, književnost in terminologijo. Lahko je motivacija, da narečje osamljeno od matične države. Tipični primeri so Slovenci med Muro in Rabo (odkoder jaz tudi izviram) in Gradiščanski (Burgenlandski) Hrvati. Gradiščanskohrvaški jezik tudi uradno pokrajinski (regionalni) jezik in študirajo ga na Sombotelski (Szombathely) Univerzi in v osnovnih šolah v Železni županiji (Vas county) in Avstriji.

Incorrect transliteration[edit]

Hello. Your last edits in the articles of Simeon Simev [4] [5] and Trebishte [6] [7] [8] are incorrect and do not follow the rules for Macedonian-English transliteration determined by the standard Правопис на македонскиот литературен јазик. Should you need help in certain language subtleties, please don't hesitate to contact me. Best regards.--Relativefrequency (talk) 00:19, 2 April 2010 (UTC)

That is for transliterating from English to Macedonian. When transliterating from Macedonian to English this is how it's done. So, Штип becomes Štip not Shtip, Кочани becomes Kočani not Kochani, etc. Happy Easter. --Local hero talk 01:46, 2 April 2010 (UTC)
It is incorrect and illogical to use Serbian transliteration when talking about Macedonian and English languages (the English and Macedonian languages have neither š nor č). The rules are clearly defined in the Pravopis that I mentioned earlier and apply in both directions Macedonian-English and English-Macedonian. Happy Easter!--Relativefrequency (talk) 09:41, 3 April 2010 (UTC)
The correct Macedonian Latin alphabet
Notice how the Latin equivalent is "Vratnica" and not "Vratnitsa".
Actually, that link is for the romanisation of both Macedonian and Serbian. Those rules on the link you've provided only apply when transliterating from English to Macedonian and not the other way around. These images prove my point. Look at this picture too: [9]. Notice how Приштина is Priština. Finally, take a look at these articles: Scientific transliteration and Romanization of Macedonian. --Local hero talk 14:31, 3 April 2010 (UTC)
Can you give a scientific explanation of the usage of š and č in the English language? Thanks.--Relativefrequency (talk) 16:55, 3 April 2010 (UTC)
Those letters are used for transliterating languages like Macedonian, Serbian, and Belarusian from Cyrillic to Latin. Check out the actual articles for these letters: š, č, ž. Take Łódź for example. The letter "Ł" is not used in English yet the letter is not replaced with a "w" just because "Ł" doesn't exist in English. Do you get it? --Local hero talk 18:34, 3 April 2010 (UTC)
It is great that you realized š and č are not used in the English language, but it would be even greater if you make a difference between English and Latin. We talk here about standardized rules defined by the Pravopis for transliteration between Macedonian (not Polish) and English. The English alphabet is very well known, the Pravopis is also very well known, so this is not the right place for original research. The Pravopis is clear: ш is replaced by sh, ч is replaced by ch and vice-versa.--Relativefrequency (talk) 20:46, 3 April 2010 (UTC)
When I say Latin, I mean Latin alphabet. What original research are you talking about? I gave you a reliable link and referred you to properly sourced articles here on Wikipedia. --Local hero talk 21:41, 3 April 2010 (UTC)

I was watching my watchlist, and I´m not sure why this debate came in front of my eyes. Anyway, I do agree with Local hero. Штип is "Štip", and not "Shtip", and same rules were applied to all south slavic names in ex-Yugoslavia (excluded only the Albanian denominations). Bulgarian names, despite also belonging to a South Slavic language are transliterated in a different way, much closer to the one used by Russian language (I´m not sure why). But, maybe User:Evlekis could help you better with this. Anyway, sorry for my intromision, and Хpиcтoc Bacкpece! FkpCascais (talk) 03:41, 4 April 2010 (UTC)

Yep, Навистина воскресе, and (as I was asked to comment by Local Hero), I too agree with him here. Please see Wikipedia:Naming conventions (Cyrillic)#Macedonian, together with Romanization of Macedonian, ISO 9, and scientific transliteration. There are of course several different transliteration systems, some with ‹sh, ch, zh› and some withh ‹š, č, ž›, but the latter system is the one preferred by the Macedonian Academy, by traditional academic transliteration in the west (scientific transliteration), and by official Macedonian practice in romanization of place names. This convention has therefore been adopted by Wikipedia, and I was always under the impression that Macedonian editors tend to strongly support this consensus. (Funnily, Bulgarians tend to prefer the ‹sh, ch, zh› type of system.) The page at mk:Македонска транскрипција на странски јазици#Англиски имиња that Relativefrequency linked to is evidently only about rendering foreign (e.g. English) names in Macedonian (as in BushБуш), not the other way round. Even I can understand "Транскрипцијата (предавањето) на странските јазици со македонското писмо". Fut.Perf. 10:37, 4 April 2010 (UTC)
P.S.: Oh, and, Relativefrequency, something very important: whatever the merits of your argument, never try to move a page by just cutting and pasting its contents into a new page, as you did between Štip and Shtip. Even if your argument about "Shtip" being the better spelling should gain consensus, the only correct way of carrying it out is to use the "move" button, which, in this case, can only be done by an admin. Fut.Perf. 11:57, 4 April 2010 (UTC)
My link points to the Macedonian transliteration of the English language, but none of your links defines the transliteration of Macedonian texts in English (a specific language). You suggest a really funny thing when you say that it does not go the other way around. If you transliterate sh to ш in English, then what is the logic of transliterating ш to š (also in English)?--Relativefrequency (talk) 23:21, 4 April 2010 (UTC)
The world doesn't care whether you, personally, can see a logic in it. This is the common practice out there in English-speaking publications. Live with it. Fut.Perf. 06:41, 5 April 2010 (UTC)
I am really glad you started to call it a practice and not a rule anymore - practically no one uses that old system in the Republic of Macedonia. Anyway, I personally welcome second opinions, but you should provide reliable sources for your claims, even if you involve the whole world in this conversation to back up your administrative decisions. Hint: Perhaps a good start for you could be the official (institutional) practice of transliterating places used in the Macedonian passports and identity cards (which transliterates ш and ч to sh and ch, so Штип and Кочани become Shtip and Kochani respectively).--Relativefrequency (talk) 21:13, 5 April 2010 (UTC)
Yes, the practice in passports is mentioned in our Romanization of Macedonian article too. So what? The standard system is still the one taught in schools, used in all other official business, codified by the Academy, described as official in linguistic secondary sources [10], and adopted by any number of foreign institutions (such as Library of Congress [11], UN placenames commission [12], the US government [13], among many others. If you want to change the Wikipedia-wide consensus in this matter, go to WP:CYR and propose it there. Fut.Perf. 21:51, 5 April 2010 (UTC)

Left you a response here. I think Albanian contributors should give some contributions and then we'll see if we can tag them. Feel free to remove them. Btw I have noticed that you have maintained several times the Albania article against vandalism. Thank you for doing that. Best! --Sulmues Let's talk 03:38, 2 May 2010 (UTC)

Albanian community in Bitola[edit]

this is not a good edit. That there is an Albanian community in Bitola is known to every single learned Macedonian and Albanian. There was a reason why the Congress of Manastir was held in Bitola. And you might know that there still are Albanians in Bitola see here. Could you please give me an explanation why you removed "Albanian community in Bitola" at Parashqevi Qiriazi? I have plenty of sources to show you that the first Albanian Protestants were baptized in Bitola and they were from the Albanian community, so please when you make an edit like that, drop me a line and I won't bite. --Sulmues Let's talk 19:46, 12 May 2010 (UTC)

I know there was a sizeable Albanian community in Bitola, but the sentence made it seem as though she was born in a part of the city that was only inhabited by Albanians (an "Albanian community"), which isn't mentioned in the source. I know that some Albanians still live there; I've been to an Albanian-owned shop in Bitola that sells very good burek. Also, it could be perceived that the sentence is saying that Bitola is/was an Albanian community which is/was not the case. --Local hero talk 19:53, 12 May 2010 (UTC)

I answered you here. I really believe that's a very bad map and should not be used. We can't have the Greeks use it for what Qosja says incorrectly and the Macedonians correct it on the other side.

Reverts on citi templates of Albania[edit]

Hi, I noted that you reverted twice user:Shikuesi3, and I notified him User_talk:Shikuesi3#Referenca. He is getting better and better as a wikipedian, but please next time that you revert him drop him a line in the talk page. I think he has the references. --Sulmues Let's talk 23:28, 14 June 2010 (UTC)

Ok, now he put the references there. Cheers. --Sulmues Let's talk 01:14, 15 June 2010 (UTC)
I didn't revert him. I actually had no idea that he added those. I just removed Bazje because, according to its article, it is a village. If he has a source that says otherwise then he can relist it on the template (which I see he did). No big deal. Regards. --Local hero talk 19:52, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

Local hero, AVNOJ and ASNOM started the first Macedonian state, the People's Republic of Macedonia, and also gave right of free use of the Macedonian language.

Ledes and demographics[edit]

Hi there Local hero, I trust all is fine. Since we had the lede with demographics problem in Sarande where I inadvertedly rolled you back, you may want to see Talk:Gjirokastër#Lede and get involved in it. In my opinion demographics should NOT be mentioned in the lede and I think you concurred with me on that. We need to be consistent between Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia, Macedonia, Kosovo, Montenegro, Greece, Albania, Bulgaria. I think the only articles where the number of Greeks are mentioned in the lede are the Albanian cities with some Greek minorities and that's a problem of consistency with the other articles in the Balkans. --Sulmues (talk) 13:26, 24 August 2010 (UTC)

Norman Wisdom[edit]

Your might want to take this to the talk page, but as the only capitalist actor whose films were allowed in Albania during hard-line communism, and he is regarded as something of a hero there, I think Wisdom is of interest to the Albania project but feel free to argue against the available evidence on the Talk page. Cheers. Rodhullandemu 23:17, 7 October 2010 (UTC)

He's not Albanian, probably never went there, probably never met an Albanian. For these reasons it seems that the Albanian wikiproject is irrelevant. Few to none of the edits made on that article have been from members of that wikiproject. If they really want to keep it there, then whatever I won't lose any sleep it just seemed irrelevant. --Local hero talk 23:39, 7 October 2010 (UTC)

stop editing Croatian tallest buildings, ffs we know better what height our buildings are than you, and if i say above 50m than it means only above 50m, otherwise we would end up with useless amount of information that no longer is relevant but constitute spam.

If you could read well, you could have seen that I only moved the "above 50 m" thing to the first section where it is more appropriate and more sightly. And don't call my edits vandalism; I'm the one who created that article. --Local hero talk 21:57, 8 December 2010 (UTC)

if you look at the bottom of Croatia tallest buildings you'll see a massive template, Tallest buildings and structures in the world,.

if you continue to insert former Yugoslavia shit, I'll contact admins and have your privileges on wiki revoked, i don't give a monkey arse what you do on Macedonian page, leave Croatian pages alone. There's template for anyone who wishes to look at tallest structures in former yugolala can click on template link. end of discussion.

I don't know what you have against Yugoslavia and I don't really care. But you've made me realise that the template does include a link to the Yugoslavia list and to the Europe list as well. So, there is no need for a "See also" section at all.

macedonia war[edit]

Hey mate, This feud we have over the 2001 insurgency in Macedonia is ridiculous & this article has been a scene of stupid editing for years now, so please stop this reverting stuff and I have gone through a great length to find sources and just because you don't like them does not make it so. which means either find some sources of your own and don't edit with no sources because my claims hold ground more than yours since I have sources to back my edits whilst yours don't.
Best regards (talk) 03:53, 22 January 2011 (UTC)

Yes and you're a big part of the stupid editing. While I am not dyslexic at least I know how to spell the word. I don't care what "great lengths" you've gone to because everything you've added is extremely POV. With that 'Slav extremist' stuff you're trying to make it seem that Albanians were not the cause of this conflict. Also, you cannot use Wikipedia as a source. I'll say it again since you don't seem to comprehend: you cannot use Wikipedia as a source. You cannot use the Albania flagicon since these terrorists were not from the Republic of Albania. You're friendsofbosnia source does not work. Let me quote the Economist source about the 10,000 Slavs: "Many have guns and are prepared to use them—perhaps 10,000 people in a country where the regular army is only a little larger than that." Where does it say that they ever used those guns? The deaths of the Pakistanis occurred the year following the conflict and, therefore, those deaths were not casualties of the conflict. --Local hero talk 15:43, 22 January 2011 (UTC)

OK mate get happy with your spelling contests thank god you have a spell check and have never heard of slang. & no I'm not because everything else I have posted till now is very well sourced & so is this part now which you are refuting.
It clear states in 3 sources which Macedonian politicians them self's claimed that they had up to 10,000 militants/extremists/mercenaries... or what ever you want to call the.
How does number of combatants make it seem like who started what are you that obtuse! it is very well known how the conflict started it was something that had been cooking from 1994 and both sides were equally responsible, "it takes two to tango" Macedonian with their oppression of Albanian minority and Albanians with their separatist aspirations & in the end it was decided greater rights for end of war. so because you seem to be some sort of Macedonian nationalist and don't like the facts then tough.
Excuse me mate but my articles are from major news organisations like BBC, Times, Economic...etc no wikipedia there. See what I mean the NLA was never claimed as a terrorist organisation and neither was the KLA this clearly shows your hatred and bias stance towards this article and people like you should not be allowed to edit, because you are a racist neo-fascist & I used the Albanian flag because they are of ethnic Albanian background since there was no NLA flag but thanks to that new use we now have it... so that has been changed correctly now.
Exactly read the quote as for friends of Bosnia it does work you have to look at the place it came from, AND IT CLEARLY SAYS THERE WAS 10,000 and were involved in rioting and attacks against Albanians in Bitola and Prilep.
Armed conflict continued all the way into spring 2002 and and teh Pakistani CIVILIANS were MURDERD IN COLD BLOOD by MACEDONIAN SPECIAL POLICE and were blamed with being terrorists and part of NLA and were staging more attacks not to let the ohrid peace agreement go through, they were apart of the war and unless you wish to start another article about that terrorist act of your national police and your Minister of Internal Affairs Ljube Boškoski whop received 12 years imprisonment from HAGUE court for war crimes, if this wasn't part of the war then why did he get charged and convicted for war crimes. the war had no official start and end, but fighting took place from 2000-2002 and the most incense was in 2001 but that does not make it a confirmed date so either find a source for the exact dates of the beginning and end of war or be quiet and stop ruining the article. many articles show death tools after the war officially ended... e.g. the soviet war in Afghanistan look at that article for a while my friend... also 250 died in the conflict so I don't know were you are getting your sources for civilian deaths.

The Ohrid Agreement was signed in August 2001, the conflict had ended before that, but definitely by then, that is why they signed this accord. Politis (talk) 21:48, 22 January 2011 (UTC)

Albania Dialect Map[edit]

Hi, I noticed you removed the map, I would like to add it in Albania Language section. Can I ? Are you an Admin ? Nemzag (talk) 22:11, 31 January 2011 (UTC)

Hello. I removed the map because that section is supposed to be about the languages spoken in Albania not just the Albanian language although it is the most spoken language in that country. That map focuses on only the Albanian language and it also shows dialects of that language in different countries which is irrelevant to the article as it is just supposed to focus on Albania. That map would be useful in the Albanian language article as that article discusses the different dialects of the Albanian language and where they are spoken. Regards. --Local hero talk 23:03, 31 January 2011 (UTC)

Hi, I added the image in Albania Language, if you like you can add in the Albanian Language page. This map is useful for Albanian page, cause it shows the propagation of the language that make us albanian, and the section talk about Tosk & Gheg, so I think this image should be added there. We speak albanian despite border. Nemzag (talk) 00:33, 1 February 2011 (UTC)

Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference[edit]

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion, guidelines for use at WP:MINOR). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and all users will still be able to manually mark their edits as being minor in the usual way.

For well-established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 20:51, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

Re: EDIT: Pjesma Zajdi zajdi sonce[edit]

Pjesma Zajdi zajdi sonce, Local User don't revert my edits to this songs history, couse claims that Aleksandar Sarievski composed it are [false]!!!!!! Aleksandar was Macedonian traditional music - folk singer and thats it, he was not composer nor song writer and { Zajdi zajdi song } is ancient and at least 500 years old. Im guessing Mr. Sarievski lived 500+ years Please don't make Macedonian history based on lies and fiction. I lived in SFRJ long enough to know what is what and who is who.

Edit warring on Greek language articles[edit]

I've noticed that you're engaged in several edit wars, with Meliniki, regarding minor alterations to multiple Greek language articles. Perhaps you should consider discussing the changes on Meliniki's talk page instead? Mephistophelian (talk) 01:37, 29 April 2011 (UTC)

From what I've checked so far Meliniki is deliberately attributing [15] this map at least to official statistics, although there's no census in Macedonia or other official data that verify the map.--— ZjarriRrethues — talk 05:38, 29 April 2011 (UTC)
Hey man, what's up with the huge reverting fest? The map you're removing is obviously inappropriate, but it's not really vandalism so I suppose 3RR would apply. If you have trouble of that kind, you should contact an admin, not do over 50 reverts to several articles. I believe you acted in good faith, so that's just a heads up :) Best, Toдor Boжinov 07:20, 29 April 2011 (UTC)

Basically, the way this disambiguation page looks right now has been agreed upon. Things are ordered from most commonly searched for to least. It is also divided into 'Historical uses', 'Other use', etc. Your changes were unhelpful and unnecessary. --Local hero talk 20:04, 13 June 2011 (UTC)

About Otesevo[edit]

Uhh.. I undid your edit on Otesevo because in case people on the page read it so they know Ohrid is a city of UNESCO and what the nearest airport to Otesevo is

Macedoniarulez (talk) 04:58, 24 August 2011 (UTC)
Hi. Whether Ohrid is an UNESCO World Heritage Site or not is irrelevant to the village of Oteševo as they are not even in the same municipality. The village's distance to the nearest airport is something you would more likely see on a Wikitravel article about Oteševo. But you can keep both of those pieces of info on the article if you want, it doesn't matter to me. The only thing I insist on changing is re-adding that it's in Resen Municipality in the first sentence as that's common practice for Macedonian village articles and re-adding the 'Villages in Resen Municipality' category. --Local hero talk 13:07, 24 August 2011 (UTC)

Latin alphabet in Macedonian language[edit]


I am not sure if it is appropriate to write something on Macedonian language using Latin alphabet like in the below sentence.

"The Old Bazaar (Macedonian: Стара Чаршија, Stara Čaršija"

Am I right?--Antidiskriminator (talk) 06:36, 26 August 2011 (UTC)

Hey. You mean it should just be "(Macedonian: Стара Чаршија from the Turkish..." ? I think it's helpful if the Latin transliteration is there but it doesn't have to be there. --Local hero talk 14:01, 26 August 2011 (UTC)
I thought that Macedonian is like Russian or Bulgarian, i.e. impossible for Latin transliteration. Maybe I am wrong. I agree that such transliteration is helpful for readers on English wikipedia. I was just curious if it is possible?--Antidiskriminator (talk) 21:39, 26 August 2011 (UTC)
Yes, it's possible (Romanization of Macedonian). Regards. --Local hero talk 23:10, 26 August 2011 (UTC)
I did not know it was possible and now I am satisfied because I asked you about it. Blagodaram. :) --Antidiskriminator (talk) 23:19, 26 August 2011 (UTC)
No problem :). --Local hero talk 01:43, 27 August 2011 (UTC)


Hey Local Hero :). How are U? We haven't 'seen' each other on wiki for a while. This period I'm in Rihanna articles. I putted "Rehab" for PR as I want to nominate it for FA. However I have an issue in the sentence "The song's middle 8 features a vocal call and response between Rihanna and Justin Timberlake, with Timberlake calling "Now ladies gimme that" and Rihanna responding with the "Oh, oh, oh, oh, ohohoh, oh, oh, ohh" ad-lib hook.". The problem is of the n+ing phrasing which is frowned upon by FAC reviewers. Since you are a native English speaker, I hope you can rewrite the sentece. This can probably help you. Thank you :) ! Tomica1111 (talk) 15:10, 28 August 2011 (UTC)

Hey, I'm good. One solution, perhaps, is to separate the sentence with a semicolon:
  • The song's middle 8 features a vocal call-and-response between Rihanna and Justin Timberlake; Timberlake calls "Now ladies gimme that" and Rihanna responds with the "Oh, oh, oh, oh, ohohoh, oh, oh, ohh" ad-lib hook.
Another solution is to replace 'with' with 'in which':
  • The song's middle 8 features a vocal call-and-response between Rihanna and Justin Timberlake in which Timberlake calls "Now ladies gimme that" and Rihanna responds with the "Oh, oh, oh, oh, ohohoh, oh, oh, ohh" ad-lib hook.
The second one is probably the one to go with. Keep up the good work. Regards. --Local hero talk 15:39, 28 August 2011 (UTC)

Hi friend. It's me again. I really need a favor and of course it's about "Rehab" again. You know I want to nominate it for a FA, however, the prose is the biggest problem at the reviewers. Can you slightly review articles prose? I mean If you are not busy, and of course I will credit you. If you are not so familiar with the music articles prose, you can check "Irreplaecable". That is actually a FA. I would be very greatful If you can do this favor for me. Thanks Tomica1111 (talk) 14:33, 29 August 2011 (UTC)

Okay, I'll go through it and fix some things. --Local hero talk 16:08, 29 August 2011 (UTC)

Please stop reverting immediately[edit]

Your recent edits seem to have the appearance of edit warring after a review of the reverts you have made on Lofoi. Users are expected to collaborate and discuss with others and avoid editing disruptively.

Please be particularly aware, the three-revert rule states that:

  1. Making more than three reversions on a single page within a 24-hour period is almost always grounds for an immediate block.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss the changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. One more revert; I will block you. Wifione Message 18:56, 10 September 2011 (UTC)[edit]

Hi, just noticed what the link contains, what do you find relatively decent in this site that makes it usable as an external link ? The history section is completely unverifiable and written in a whiggish manner, apart from following the ideological preoccupations of the ethnic Macedonian diaspora. The "Macedonia" section is basically propaganda material, its cause being meritable or not, it is propaganda nonetheless.--King of Fluid (talk) 17:07, 14 September 2011 (UTC)

Hey. I didn't claim it was a usable external link. I've only made one edit to the article and it was just a partial reversion of Notesenses. --Local hero talk 19:32, 14 September 2011 (UTC)
OK, sorry for bothering you, i didn't mean to be critical of your revert, i was just asking for an opinion. Thanks.--King of Fluid (talk) 20:04, 14 September 2011 (UTC)

Just because she lived there doesn't necessarily mean she's Bulgarian, but I re-added it anyway. --Local hero talk 18:44, 15 September 2011 (UTC)
And, while you're here, I'm sure you've noticed the latest conflict at Bulgarians. I think you're perhaps more level-headed than Dinner for Three; don't you think the census number for Bulgarians in Macedonia needs to be listed along with the higher estimate of 35,808? --Local hero talk 18:48, 15 September 2011 (UTC)

My opinion is 1400 - 1500 people are Bulgarians there. And the Macedonians in Bulgaria are 400-500 persons. Jingby (talk) 18:54, 15 September 2011 (UTC)

Ok, could you please join the discussion then? I've tried but he will never accept it from me. --Local hero talk 19:01, 15 September 2011 (UTC)

Number of Christians should only be stated on religion in Albania page. Another paragraph you have added is just the duplication of %ages of different religions given by Albanian 2011 census estimates. The percentage that other sources e.g CIA gives is indirectly written in history topic. I just tried to make the article more simple and readable.Rajputbhatti (talk) 14:25, 15 August 2013 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Rajputbhatti (talkcontribs) 14:22, 15 August 2013 (UTC)

Hi. I agree that the percentage of Christians and other religions doesn't need to be in the lead of this article. The other estimates by Pew, CIA, etc. should be kept there, however. The census, while a step in the right direction hopefully, is not sufficiently reliable to be the only one mentioned in the lead. We've discussed in the past (either in the Albania or Albanians talkpage) why it is necessary to keep the other estimates. Regards. --Local hero talk 03:20, 16 August 2013 (UTC)

Undo versions of macedonia name conflict[edit]

Hi Localhero, I see you have deleted my edits on the article. I respect it but can you please explain what exactly did you find POV on my edits?

Hey. The text you added contained clear bias and lacked any sources. You claimed that the ancient Macedonians are unquestionably part of Greek heritage and culture and belong to the Hellenic nation. You made it seem as if the territory of the region of Macedonia that is currently part of the Republic of Macedonia is about as much as Albania and Bulgaria have. You used the term 'Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia' which, after much debate, is not used in nearly all situations on Wikipedia. So, that's mostly why. Regards. --Local hero talk 21:32, 20 January 2014 (UTC)

Religion in Albania[edit]

Apologies for the oversight over its being a combined percentage of Sunni & Bektashi. I was just reverting myself when you got to it first! Do you mind if I qualify the Bektashi in the graph as being Bektashi Shia for the purposes of clarification for the average English reader? I suspect that most are acquainted with Sunni and Shia, but wouldn't be able to identify Bekhtashi as being Islam at a glance. Cheers. --Iryna Harpy (talk) 00:18, 7 February 2014 (UTC)

Oh, no worries. I think that'd be a good idea, Bektashi is definitely a rather unknown sect. Regards. --Local hero talk 00:21, 7 February 2014 (UTC)
Cheers. --Iryna Harpy (talk) 00:24, 7 February 2014 (UTC)
Mind you, I have it on authority that these edits were made in 'good faith' (Vatican-approved). Apparently, the English-speaking media have never stopped coverage of The Crusades! --Iryna Harpy (talk) 03:45, 7 February 2014 (UTC)
Haha oh wow, he seems to be increasing the Catholic proportion everywhere. I hadn't realised it was he second time changing the figures on Religion in Albania in a week. --Local hero talk 03:53, 7 February 2014 (UTC)
I've just gone to the font of devotion and am rolling back masses of baptisms that didn't happen. This little IP is a man (or woman) on a serious religious mission. I've never seen so many people convert to Catholicism overnight! I think I'll just keep my eye on this guy.

Hello, I am Bosnian, and probably I know more than you about my country's history. I don't see a reason you should make edits on my contribs. You should wait for someone with more knowledge.

Template mistake[edit]

Hi. :) I think I know what you were trying to do here. There was a mistake with the bot for a while so that it didn't substitute the template on the page and when people tried to edit the section to respond or remove the notices, they instead edited the template itself. In an effort to help out, I've removed the notice from your page. If that wasn't what you intended, please excuse me and feel free to revert to put it back. Obviously, the issue was long since cleared up in review at WP:SCV. The bot is very helpful at finding when people copy from one article to another but is not sophisticated enough to determine when the same person writes both articles. :D --Moonriddengirl (talk) 10:55, 11 April 2014 (UTC)

Hey, thanks a lot! Yes, that's what I was trying to do and was very confused when my edit ended up somehow blanking the template page. All the best. --Local hero talk 13:09, 11 April 2014 (UTC)

Invitation to all Macedonian users to create an art. on Igor Janev on English Wikipedia[edit]


see [17] (talk) 01:55, 26 April 2014 (UTC)


as i promised here is one of the thousand of sources i can find for you. I am aware that you genuinely believe that that was the truth , however it is not . Regarding the organization of islamic cooperation

Albania is not a member ... simple as that ...

1) It has not been ratified by the parliament 2) It was an attempt in 1992 by the then isolated Albania ( similar to North Korea ) to get some funds , however it was not ratified . I guess everyone here is smart enough to understand that in order for a country to be a member of SOMETHING , then it must be ratified in the parliament .... 3)Here latest news and events from albania for this subject , for anyone in doupt >

Vice prime minister saying that Albania will not take place in the annual gathering of the Islamic cooperation , says also that albania is not a member since it has not been ratified by the parliament.

Please use google translate . Gjirokastra15 (talk) 11:02, 7 May 2014 (UTC)

Hello. According to the organisation's official website here, Albania is listed as a member. Also in the site are articles about Albania's ties to the organisation, like here. Albania also has an ambassador to the OIC.
Your article states that the declining of the invitation to this year's event was only due to budget constraints. No where in the article does it flat out state that Albania is not a member. It also states that the Speaker attended in 2012. --Local hero talk 14:32, 7 May 2014 (UTC)

It seems to me that you tend to see what you like to see . Here another article > . ( The exact translation of the title > Albania refuzes the islamic organization ) ...

So please respect that !

To make it more clear for you , albania has chosen not to be anymore part of that organization , claiming > 1) That it is not ratified by the parlament 2) Budget ...! Which translates in diplomatic words , a way out of that organization .

Given the latest developments we can at least leave that out for now , due to the status quo .... ! Please read the whole article this time , and not only what you wish to see ... !

Gjirokastra15 (talk) 18:20, 10 May 2014 (UTC)

Your articles are so contradictory that your argument is almost laughable. The very first sentence states that "Given the fact that Albania is a member of this organization since 1992..." and "Albania will take part in the 9th session of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation". But please answer this, did you not see the link I provided from the OIC's website itself? --Local hero talk 18:25, 10 May 2014 (UTC)

Maybe you should aknwoledge the possibility of google translate not giving you the best translation , as in this case > "Albania will NOT take part in the 9th session of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation". So what is laughable is your persistence to write an inaccurate fact about a country ... ! ( which i hope is a genuine mistake , and not on purpose as it would benefit no one .... )

Given the fact that this development is only 2 months old , i dont expect the OIC website to reflect that immidiately. However i dont think this matters ( It does not belong to the OIC to say which country is a member , rather it belongs to a country and its parliament ) ... !!!

If tomorrow OIC says Uk is a part of our organization , will uk be concidered a part of that organization ???

So to answer your question , yes i did see it and i am aware , however the latest developments are not yet being reflected there !

I do not understand your persistence for a matter as such which is in status quo to say the least .... !!!! Gjirokastra15 (talk) 18:40, 10 May 2014 (UTC)

Very well, I'll assume the articles state what you say they do and that there are many of them stating this. So here's what I think should be done: take it out of the lead, as is the case right now, and add a sentence in the Government section stating that Albania became an OIC member in 1992 but will not participate in the 2014 conference as it has not been ratified by the Albanian parliament. Sound good? --Local hero talk 18:46, 10 May 2014 (UTC)

Is of that importance to write about OIC ??? Given the religious nature of this organization , and the circumstances that Albania became member , i do not think it merits a whole sentence and especially in the Goverment section ? ( There is no appropriate section for it in the goverment section, unless you create a whole section for such a meaningless fact , which is illogical ) . If you however find a more appropriate section , your sentence is more than correct . Regards , Gjirokastra15 (talk) 18:56, 10 May 2014 (UTC)

I only suggested the Government section because I saw the NATO sentence in there. But, upon further thought, I think the Economy section would be best as the organisation seems to be largely about strengthening economic ties among its members. If you agree about the placement, I'll add that sentence with your articles as a reference. --Local hero talk 19:03, 10 May 2014 (UTC)

Given the lack of appropriate sections for a fact of such nature , the section of economy would do the job . However , maybe the section of religion seems a bit more appropriate ? From what i understand , what these countries share together is religion . Albania is getting away from there in part due to > changing religious demographics in favor of non muslim religions( started with the official atheism in communism times and continues till today ) , and aspiration towards eu integration . Thank you for working this out with me . Regards ,

Gjirokastra15 (talk) 19:13, 10 May 2014 (UTC)

Okay, that sounds good to me. I'll work it into that section. I also think this a good solution, all the best. --Local hero talk 19:22, 10 May 2014 (UTC)

Templates in Krushevo Republic article[edit]

Hi, I saw that you added the Macedonian history template to the Krushevo Republic article. I think this article is equally relevant to Bulgarian and Macedonian history and therefore deserves to have both templates (if it has to have a template at all), but it's quite short and two templates would cause too much clutter. So I suggest keeping the article template-less. Let me know your thoughts. Greetings Tropcho (talk) 22:05, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

Hello. I added the Macedonian history template as the Kruševo Republic article is listed within it. So, it just seemed to make sense to have it included on the article. I see the Bulgarian history template doesn't have it included. I don't know whether this means that there is less significance of this short-lived republic to Bulgarian history than to Macedonian history, but it was the first independent republic established on the present-day country's territory. Regards. --Local hero talk 02:55, 13 June 2014 (UTC)

Coat of Arms of Novo Selo Municipality[edit]

Can You please explain why my revision of the CoA of Novo Selo Municipality is reverted twice? Thank You. :)

The same file is used on the Macedonian page and everything is fine - you can see on [18] (talk) 15:31, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
The problem is that you only uploaded it to the Macedonian Wikipedia. Thus, it will only work there. If you want it to work across all Wikipedias, you need to upload it at the Wikimedia commons. --Local hero talk 15:48, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

Prespa villages of Albania[edit]

Please revert yourself in your recent moves of the names of the Prespa villages of Albania: they are not supportable.

After 10 years of their current names, you waking up and giving them Bulgarian names can be seen as a provocation and goes against the wiki spirit.

At a minimum you should go to wikiProject Albania and notify the users if they would agree with such move. Unilateral moves such as this one are desperate attempts to stir up wikifights. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Praksitheja (talkcontribs) 04:11, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

Also, you should know fully well that there is a well established practice in wiki not to put wikiprojects of other countries in another country's geographical articles. WikiProject templates such as this for a settlement in Albania are a clear invitation to have Albanian wikiProject templates all over Albanian settlements in Macedonia. Are you by any chance a Bulgarian, trying to stir things up between Albanians and Macedonians? Or are you a Greek? Because if you are a Macedonian, and if you are smart enough, you wouldn'd do these things, would you? --Praksitheja (talk) 04:18, 29 July 2014 (UTC)
I notified wikiProject Albania for your moves. What you have done is not wise. Praksitheja (talk) 04:30, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

Alright, here it is:

  1. I won't revert myself; I was being bold in moving the pages. If a consensus emerges that decides to revert my moves, then so be it.
  2. I don't know where you're getting '10 years' from; I personally created some of these in the past two months, while the oldest ones date from 2008.
  3. I did not mean to provoke anything. I have been improving Albanian village articles for a few months and have received no feedback whatsoever on it so I surely didn't expect anything now.
  4. Please take a look at Talk:Pustec Municipality, I started a discussion there.
  5. As for the WikiProject banners, feel free to revert it. It seemed relevant to put when I was editing these articles since WP:MKD covers not just the Republic of Macedonia, but ethnic Macedonians in general. That's all, not a huge deal to me.

Lastly, may I ask if you've ever edited Wikipedia under other accounts before? The timing of your account creation is a little odd. Regards. --Local hero talk 12:29, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

Albanian Language[edit]

You did some changes to the Albanian language page and reverted the places I added were Albanian is spoken. Here is a reference for adding Greece, Ukraine and Crotia(Zadar region): Also you can check the facts yourself if you want. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ijoni (talkcontribs) 19:43, 21 September 2014 (UTC)

There is a difference between 'minority language' and 'recognised minority language'. The latter means that the language has some recognised use within that country. Albanian does not have this any of those countries. --Local hero talk 19:57, 21 September 2014 (UTC)


Regarding this edit - I had removed Cyrillic script rendering from the top of Macedonian football club infoboxes as they are not usually used on Wikipedia since in my opinion they add little informative value (the Cyrillic script version of the name is already in the lede) and cause excessive cluttering. The top of infoboxes in articles of this type are usually reserved for just the most commonly used name for the club in English-language media or at least the latin script (which does not even need to be official name). For comparison, see articles on Russian clubs like PFC CSKA Moscow or FC Rubin Kazan, Ukrainian clubs like FC Shakhtar Donetsk or FC Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk, or even Bulgarian slubs such as PFC Levski Sofia or PFC Ludogorets Razgrad. It is simply unnecessary. Timbouctou (talk) 18:56, 14 November 2014 (UTC)

Greek Macedonians included in List of Macedonians (ethnic group)?‎[edit]

I am not sure why you want to pick a fight over this, but: 1- The article, Michael Zigomanis, is unsourced about the part important for what matters here. 2- The part claiming he is ethnic Macedonian is a deadlink and besides, his parents are from Macedonia (Greek Macedonia) from Kastoria. 3- We know there is much more chance in Zigomanis being a Greek surname rather than Slav Macedonian. 4- Do you really want to expand the scope of the article List of Macedonians (ethnic group) to include Greek Macedonians as well?

I really don't care that much about that one name on that list, I leave it to you to your judgment, but beleave I didn't removed him for any stupid reason. Just that the list makes much more sense to focus on Macedonians (ethnic group), and not to be mixe with the other lists as mentioned just at the top of the article. Cheers, FkpCascais (talk) 22:38, 9 December 2014 (UTC)

Hi. Of course the list should focus only on ethnic Macedonians since that is what the article's title would suggest it will focus on. I didn't realize the link on his article is now dead. I should've checked that, sorry.
His surname is beside the point, plenty of Slavs in Aegean Macedonia had their surnames changed. Nonetheless, it should be removed since there is no longer verification. --Local hero talk 03:44, 10 December 2014 (UTC)

Edits and fixs reverted without consderation[edit]

I made some improvements to the disambiguation page of the Macedonian/Macedonian term. I suspect, based on your past edits, that you are ethnic Macedonian but Im hoping that your reverts of POV removals don't aim in promoting the Macedonian nationalism?

My edits, as you can see, were careful, by using the information available in the corresponding pages for the kingdom and people, and the edits were applied only after double checking these pages.

For example, in one of my edits, I changed the phrase "modern Greek Macedonians" into simply "Greek Macedonians", as the term "Modern" is used by Ethnic Macedonian nationalists to promote the concept that no Greeks lived in the region of Macedonia prior to the 20th Century. I remove this due to being a possible POV.

As for the "Bulgarian Macedonians in the region of Macedonia", I have added the name of their country they are primarily associated with, and changed it into "Bulgarian Macedonians in the region of Macedonia in Bulgaria" to match in detail the info used for the other two primary groups.

For the "people of the", I added the word ancient next to the word people, to make clear the Ancient Macedonians are ancient by name, but by status too. They are not a fact of present but something of the past, who do not live to present day any more.

For the term "Greek" before the phrase "Kingdom of Macedonia", is to reflect something undisputable about the Kingdom's background, which has already been highlighted in this page (click), and very necessary in the disambiguation page to avoid confusion due to semiological similarity with the Republic of Macedonia and the people of same name of different cultural backgrounds that exist today. Note: did not add that term "Greek" before the Ancient people but before the Kingdom, as the people may not been Greek at all.

Some Ethnic Macedonians are known for reverting edits by Greeks and others due to a political dispute regarding the name, but I only am doing edits clarified with what the wikipedia's community agreed with consensus in the corresponding articles.

As for the phrase "people associated with the kingdom", is better than the "people of the kingdom", in accordance with the info in the page of the ancient Macedonians - copying text here for you: "Although composed of various clans, the Kingdom of Macedon established around the 8th century BC is mostly associated with the Argead dynasty, and the tribe named after it."

So,with all these changes, we clearly highlight the different backgrounds of the different Macedonian people that lived and live in the region.

Last, added some missing footsteps, nothing special, but you surprised me you reverted anything, including them. This has nothing to do about politics, so, I hhope yo ddnt revert all changes due to nationalist motivations. I hope you don't rush to revert other people's edits like that, without giving them a good explanation. Thanks--AuditoreEzio (talk) 01:45, 11 December 2014 (UTC)

@AuditoreEzio: Your suspicions are (obviously) correct regarding my ethnicity, though I don't think I promote any sort of nationalism. I think I'm pretty unbiased, but that's just my opinion. Also, please try to write more concisely in the future.
Your reason for removing 'modern' is absurd. It is simply a word used to distinguish from the ancient group listed below it. And why didn't you then remove the word 'modern' from the Macedonian language listing?
Bulgarian Macedonians do not come solely from Pirin Macedonia (Blagoevgrad Province). For example, Atanas Dalchev, etc.
The word 'kingdom' and 'ancient' is more than enough to distinguish from the modern Republic of Macedonia.
Anyhow, these issues are minor so I don't see the need to revert and bear all the probable hassle from that. --Local hero talk 03:58, 12 December 2014 (UTC)
The reason the term "modern" isn't removed from the Macedonian language but is removed from people who live in Macedonia, is very much self-explanatory. Regarding the term "modern" for the language, we have to take in account the transition from the use of Old Church Slavonic (OCS) in Medieval era to the formal codification of the Macedonian language in Modern era (40s). (More info here)
On the other hand, the people, both ethnic Macedonians and Greek Macedonians, did not magically appeared in the modern era. They have long history, and presence in the region under one name or another, and therefore the term "modern" can not apply to people under any circumstances. Am I wrong or did I miss something? I carefully made any edits and changes by reading the pages thouroughly first. And I assure you, the term modern is more common to see for languages, than you thought. For example, in case you didn't knew, the Greek language too has the tag "modern" if you check the Greek disambiguation pages in Wikipedia. The Greeks today even call their language "Neo-Ellinika" rather than just "Ellinika". Because that's how things work in no way is meant to be discriminatory or whatever. I apologize if this was misunderstood. -AuditoreEzio (talk) 14:13, 12 December 2014 (UTC)
Forgot to reply about Bulgarians - yes, true what you said. There are Bulgarians outside Bulgaria but within geographical borders of Macedonia, as do are ethnic Macedonians and Greek Macedonians outside their countries but within geographical borders of Macedonia. In this case do you suggest in updating the disambiguation page (re-word it) to reflect this fact better? But I don't believe it needs that much further clarification, just their country of affiliation is fairly enough for disambiguation pages. Anyways, its obvious that the population numbers are not 100℅ confined within ethnic borders. -AuditoreEzio (talk) 14:47, 12 December 2014 (UTC)
@Local hero:, I owe you an apology... Have my apologies for being overcautious with you, I didn't meant to offend a good person such as you in any way, and I am sorry for the critical tone of my wording in the beginning of our talk. I have been reading your comments and I realize that you are a nice person, in your comments to other people and this embarrass me even more for my errorenous attitude towards you. I am sorry. Could you accept my apology? I promise to be more polite with the community even if I misunderstand wrongfully ther edits as biased or POV-ridden. You are not nationalist, and I apologize for suspecting you as sush at the beginning due to edits. Hope you have a nice day and wish you Merry Christmas and I could be glad to help if you need something! Regards, -AuditoreEzio (talk) 03:26, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
Oh please, no need to apologize. I, on the other hand, am sorry I didn't get to reply to your latest message. Much of my Wikipedia time the past few days has been spent trying to get rid of a contentious editor. I had already accepted your edits to the disambiguation page, so I didn't make responding a priority and ending up forgetting about it.
I can't blame you for suspecting bias in my edits. It's not too unreasonable in editing Balkan articles, but I'm glad you now think otherwise. A very Merry Christmas to you as well! --Local hero talk 03:42, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

Your recent editing history at Albania shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. To resolve the content dispute, please do not revert or change the edits of others when you get reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. The best practice at this stage is to discuss, not edit-war. See BRD for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Being involved in an edit war can result in your 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.

Your revert[edit]

I think you already know that your revert is a pure wp:idontlikeit , removing a map with the title ' A map showing the spread of Albanian dialects ' from the article : Languages of Albania , by using the excuse that it shows ALSO the Albanian dialects outside of Albania is a non standing argument . Given your experience in wikipedia editing i think you already know that this article is covered by sanctions under WP:ARBMAC and it would be regretful to involve administrators . Best regards , Gjirokastra15 (talk) 23:11, 1 January 2015 (UTC)

Spare me, please. Languages of Albania is about languages in Albania, as one might assume. The map that has been added shows only one of the those languages (Albanian), despite the fact that others are spoken there. Take a look at Languages of Macedonia; the map there is great because it shows the spread of all of the languages spoken within the Republic of Macedonia. The map you keep reverting to is better suited for Albanian language, if it isn't already there. This really isn't a hard concept to grasp. --Local hero talk 00:16, 2 January 2015 (UTC)
Let me start with the basics . As per WP:OTHERSTUFFEXISTS , your example about the maps at Languages of Macedonia is none of my concern nor has anything to do with the particular matter that we are talking about . In addition , if you see the map in the article
Languages of Albania showing the Aromanian speakers you will notice that the map includes not only the Aromanian speakers within Albania but also outside Albania as well . It is of importance to notice that this map is a map showing the Albanian dialects within Albania , and as such is of great importance to the article . Given the lack of other maps this map cannot be removed and wp:idontlikeit is not a valid reason . You would have an argument if the map was showing the albanian speakers within and outside albania YET this map is not showing that , rather is just marking the albanian dialects within and outside albania .

I'm interested why my page on Guard of Republic of Ilirida doesn't exist any more. It's redirected to Nevzat Halili. He is the founder of it but why the page doesn't exist. It's a separatist organization that exists with links on the page to news reports about it from 2014 forward on English, Macedonian and so on. Hitler was the leader of Nazi Germany... should NAzi Germany be redirected to Hitler also. Please can Wikipedia get my page back. Every time I try to update or create something about Albanians in Macedonia and their separatist / terrorist organizations and acts in Macedonia it gets pulled down, redirected or no encyclopedic value. It has value and the world Has to know about it.

Thank you --Perdika (talk) 20:41, 14 May 2015 (UTC)

Hi, I redirected it to Republic of Ilirida (which redirects to Nevzat Halili) with the following summary: "if the 'republic' itself does not warrant its own article, why would its 'guard'?"
So, the notability requirement is not met for the guard of an entity proclaimed by one man with a tiny fringe group of supporters. And he cannot be compared to Hitler in almost any way. As for other articles you have created on the topic of Albanian militant groups in Macedonia, I think they share the same problem which is they simply aren't notable enough to exist as articles on Wikipedia. Perhaps they could be covered in existing articles like Albanians in Macedonia. Regards. --Local hero talk 23:22, 14 May 2015 (UTC)

Any time i try to update something about albanians in Macedonia that makes them look bad (on their own fault) it gets deleted... I thing Wikipedia is Cultural bias... or we will have to wit for them (The Guard of Republic of Ilirida) to shoot a couple of Macedonians and then it will be notable for Wikipedia. --Perdika (talk) 11:41, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

I think the only way it could ever warrant its own article is if the Republic of Ilirida declared independence and received significant recognition or if the "Guard" became involved in various events. Right now it seems like a phony group set up for a phony entity with a phony leader. --Local hero talk 12:57, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

Birthplace in infoboxes of football biographies[edit]

Hello Local hero. I opened a discussion here: Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Football#Birthplace_in_infoboxes. I really don't have any preference, I was just applying at Goran Pandev what has been the usual way of displaying the birthplace in footballers articles. My goal is that whatever the consensus is, it should be applied to all articles. Please share your view on the issue on that discussion. Best regards, FkpCascais (talk) 00:23, 2 June 2015 (UTC)


Thanks for the restoration of "uncontested territory". I notice on the summary you provided a link for the consensus, however that discussion has now been archived and so the link - which you cannot amend as it is permanently cemented - just lands on Talk:Kosovo. The actual link you will need for future reference is [19] (or you can wikify it). I will notify the editor to remove the agreed term, so he can see the talk for himself. Regards. --Oranges Juicy (talk) 22:29, 6 July 2015 (UTC)

Oh right, silly mistake. Thanks for letting me know. Regards. --Local hero talk 22:37, 6 July 2015 (UTC)

I saw that you were very worried about the number of Albanians.I had changed the number of Albanians in Turkey (they were in fact 5 million,now they are 6 million) so I changed the total number of Albanians too.Instead of deleting infos talk to other editors.Rolandi+ (talk) 19:33, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

European migrant crisis[edit]

Your revert [21] also undid your own previous edit, removing the "false Syrians" claim again. I suppose this was unintended? --Roentgenium111 (talk) 13:56, 12 November 2015 (UTC)

Definitely was, I should've scrolled all the way down. I just fixed the mistake, thank you for pointing it out. --Local hero talk 14:33, 12 November 2015 (UTC)

Dhimiter Canco[edit]


Please don't jump to conclusion and revert things without checking the context first. Dhimiter Canco (not Tsantso - Tsantso is the name in Greek) was a local teacher. He was the one who wrote the memorandia, parts of which Mazon published. He was not a scholar, not of any kind by definition. Moreover, he is mentioned in the article itself, therefore for what he adds value as a person to the list, he is already elaborated. Having an article in other wikipedias is not a justification - Vani Trako has also an article in Albanian wikipedia, nevertheless you tagged it.
--Mondiad (talk) 22:11, 21 December 2015 (UTC)

Hi. I pointed out its existence in other Wikipedias to show that there is basis for creating an article should anyone want to do so. I don't understand what him being mentioned in another section of the article has to do with keeping him out of the Notable people section. I tagged them because listings without articles need sources to prove notability. Thanks for adding the necessary sources. --Local hero talk 23:25, 21 December 2015 (UTC)

Photo requests in Chicago area or Detroit area[edit]

Hi! Are you interested in doing photo requests of the Chicago or Detroit areas? If so... would you be interested in getting Chinatown, Chicago and/or any Macedonian sites in the Detroit area? WhisperToMe (talk) 13:10, 24 December 2016 (UTC)

Hi, I could probably do some requests in the Detroit area. No plans to head to Chicago anytime soon, unfortunately. --Local hero talk 22:15, 24 December 2016 (UTC)
Alrighty! There's a full list at Wikipedia:WikiProject_Michigan/Detroit#Photo requests. Depending on what's convenient to you, some may be more doable than others. In addition there are some Macedonian churches:
WhisperToMe (talk) 05:14, 25 December 2016 (UTC)
Great, I'll check out the list and try to get some done over the next few weeks. --Local hero talk 07:24, 25 December 2016 (UTC)


Hmm, you need to watch your reverting too there. Or are you confident that is a banned user or something? Fut.Perf. 14:52, 18 January 2017 (UTC)

This page frequently gets this type of vandalism, but this user is more persistent than previous ones. Both of these accounts have only edited that page and are clearly the same individual. The original account has been warned and I requested page protection, with no luck. I figure the individual will get tired eventually and quit, like the rest. --Local hero talk 15:11, 18 January 2017 (UTC)
