{{adminhelpme}} Saratov corrupted by 15 January edits. How do we roll back to 9 January version? - Maliepa (talk) 18:11, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done. JohnCD (talk) 18:14, 15 January 2011 (UTC)
For future reference, you could have done it yourself.
  1. In the editing history of the article click on the time stamp of the version you want to go back to (on this occasion 21:04, 9 January 2011), which will open that version.
  2. Click on the "Edit" tab to edit the page.
  3. Provide a suitable edit summary to explain what you are doing.
  4. Save the page. JamesBWatson (talk) 18:21, 15 January 2011 (UTC)
(edit conflict) I was coming back to explain the same, but JBW has explained it more clearly. Only thing to add: it's good practice in your edit summary to reference the version you are going back to, e.g. "RV vandalism to version by EmausBot at 21:04, 9 January." JohnCD (talk) 18:27, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Hi, thank you for your contribution to it:Diocesi di Modone. Could you provide references for the information you wrote? Have a nice day. --Avemundi (talk) 03:32, 28 April 2011 (UTC)

You're quite welcome. I have several sources for the bishops where I updated names and added dates.
  1. For Bonaventura Madaliński from Hierarchia Catholica Medii Aevi, v. 5, p. 266, see pl:Bonawentura Madaliński.
  2. For Hieronim Władysław Sanguszko from Hierarchia Catholica Medii Aevi, v. 4, p. 240, see v. 4, p. 318 and it:Diocesi di Smolensk and pl:Hieronim Władysław Sanguszko.
  3. For Marianus (Cyprianus) from Hierarchia Catholica Medii Aevi, v. 3, p. 251, see Jan Kurczewski, Kościół zamkowy czyli katedra wileńska w jej dziejowym, liturgicznym, architektonicznym i ekonomicznym rozwoju, Nakład i Druk Józefa Zawadzkiego, Vilnius (1908), p. 322 (available from Google books) and pl:Biskupi sufragani wileńscy. Both give his year of death as 1594, though Kurczewski misprints the last period of his life as 1592-1584.
  4. For Georgius Albinus from Hierarchia Catholica Medii Aevi, v. 3, p. 251, see Kurczewski and pl:Biskupi sufragani wileńscy. Again both agree that his year of death was 1570.
  5. I didn't change Feliks, but both Kurczewski and pl:Biskupi sufragani wileńscy say that he preceded rather than followed Jerzy Albinus. Kurczewski cites him as titular bishop of Caffenus instead of Methonensis. See Hierarchia Catholica Medii Aevi, v. 3, p. 145.
Maliepa (talk) 03:03, 30 April 2011 (UTC)
Kurczewski also lists Jerzy Chwalczewski. I have found two Polish sources that imply that he was named titular bishop of Methonensis in 1525, but neither states this explicitly. Still searching. See also Hierarchia Catholica Medii Aevi, v. 3, p. 229.

Hi Mark, first of all thank you for your precious contributions. At we try to match high quality criteria, both to offer readers reliable information and to keep the same format on all the articles about dioceses. To do so, we have a project to coordinate our work. I'd really like you to join the project and to follow the project talk, so our common efforts will be even more efficient. Have a nice day. --Avemundi (talk) 22:58, 9 November 2011 (UTC)

Nicopoli di Palestina[edit]

Ciao. Purtroppo non parlo/scrivo inglese, spero che tu mi capisca. Hai aggiunto Sede titolare di Nicopoli di Palestina: potresti, per favore, indicarmi la fonte/source ? grazie! From: Croberto68 -- (talk) 15:28, 22 November 2011 (UTC)

Eubel, vol 8[edit]

Hi, I have noticed you quoted Eubel vol. 8. Have you found it on-line or could you read the book on paper? It would be so important to find an on-line version (the same applies for vol. 9). Please reply on Have a good day! --Avemundi (talk) 19:58, 17 March 2012 (UTC)

I recently purchased paper copies of Eubel vols. 7 and 8. has most of the information from these volumes, but is weak on identifying Apostolic Vicars and Apostolic Visitors. In addition, all of the Apostolic Visitors to Moldavia in vol. 7 have not been posted there yet. – Maliepa (talk) 01:17, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

See of Tolemaide[edit]

Ciao. Ti chiedo se puoi controllare in Eubel 7 e 8 le sedi di it:Diocesi di Tolemaide di Fenicia, it:Diocesi di Tolemaide di Libia and it:Arcidiocesi di Tolemaide di Tebaide. The cronotassi is not clear (!?). Croberto68 — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:03, 2 April 2012 (UTC)

Ho ancora bisogno di ripulire i riferimenti per it:Diocesi di Tolemaide di Libia e it:Arcidiocesi di Tolemaide di Tebaide. Potresti aggiungere i vescovi scomparsi da volumi 1-3 di Eubel in it:Diocesi di Tolemaide di Fenicia? – Maliepa (talk) 23:41, 2 April 2012 (UTC)
OK. Grazie! Croberto68 — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:48, 3 April 2012 (UTC)

Sulz vs. Selz Ukraine[edit]

Thanks for fixing my mistake, I've always thought they were different spellings of the same place. My grandfather is from one of those places, I need to check my sources. I think I've seen it spelled both ways in people's genealogy work, but amateur genealogy is notoriously inaccurate, of course. I take it both places are Black Sea German settlements? Valfontis (talk) 01:31, 16 April 2012 (UTC)

Yes, both the Kutschurgan Valley and the Beresaner Valley were fertile farmlands that drain to the Black Sea. While making the correction, I discovered that Lawrence Welk's parents came to North Dakota from Selz. – Maliepa (talk) 01:51, 16 April 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for the info. And yes, Dad always said we were related to Lawrence Welk, so we must be from Selz also. Valfontis (talk) 03:52, 16 April 2012 (UTC)

Arcidiocesi di Maronea[edit]

Ciao. Please check again Eubel: Jean-Baptiste-François Pompallier ends in 1869; but Karl Pooten started in 1844 and Athanase Khouzan in 1855 (!). By Google translation (I hope to have translated well !) ‎Croberto68 — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:10, 12 June 2012 (UTC)

Eubel elenca tutti questi vescovi sotto "Maronea (de) seu Maronien(sis) (Maronea) in Rhodope, tit." (non metrop.). Ferrarelli e Pompallier sono "eccl. ep.lem de Maronea". Senza questi due la sequenza non si sovrappone. Tutti gli altri sono "Maronien.". – Maliepa (talk) 14:55, 12 June 2012 (UTC)

it:Sede titolare di Targa[edit]

Ciao. Mi hai preceduto nella stesura della voce. Sarebbe però utile sapere in base a quale fonte identifichi Targa con Tagarata. Croberto68 — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:54, 2 July 2012 (UTC)

Eubel vol. 5 e vol. 6 indicano che Targa è in "Africa Proconsulari sub metrop. Carthiginen." Morcelli utilizza il nome Tagara non Tagarata. Targa sembra essere una versione errata di Tagara. Non ho accesso a una versione on-line della Geographia di Baudrand, che è citato da Eubel. – Maliepa (talk) 12:44, 2 July 2012 (UTC)
Ok. Però Eubel non identifica Targa con Tagarata. Non basta l'assonanza per decidere per la correttezza di una ipotesi, se non è supportata da fonti. Croberto68 -- (talk) 13:14, 2 July 2012 (UTC)

Diocesi di Arca[edit]

Ciao. Ti chiedo un aiuto! Se puoi controllare in Eubel VII e VIII le sedi di it:Sede titolare di Archis, it:Diocesi di Arca di Armenia e it:Diocesi di Arca di Fenicia. Grazie! -- (talk) 11:59, 23 July 2012 (UTC) (Croberto68)

Ho eliminato i duplicati, ma non riuscì a risolvere completamente la confusione. C'è davvero una sola sede latina prima del 1954. Eubel riporta Crespo y Bautista Arcen. in Phoenicia e Le Nordez Arcen. in Armenia. Tutti gli altri sono solo Arcen., e molto manca sul maroniti. Duiehi e Marid non sono elencati. Hoyek era arcivescovo Arcen. Maronitarum, ma riporta solo la data di consacrazione. Eubel non menziona Archis di Pisidia come terza antica sede. – Maliepa (talk) 16:20, 24 July 2012 (UTC)
Grazie per il lavoro svolto. Archis di Pisidia deve essere una invenzione di Catholic Hierarchy, benché alcuni Annuari Pontifici riportano qs dicitura.-- (talk) 07:09, 25 July 2012 (UTC) (Croberto68)


I've been thinking about template Template:Castles in Latvia, which should be filled in, and a better way to distinguish those places which are in ruins from those preserved. I saw this in one of the lists (castles or manors, I don't remember). Let's discuss this with another User so we become three editing. Any suggestion of your preference ? Krenakarore TK 14:09, 14 August 2012 (UTC)

I don't know about ruins vs. preserved, but I like the division into regions in the Latvian template. There are too many manors to lump them all together. We could divide by region, then subdivide by castle, palace, manor, ruins, etc. – Maliepa (talk) 14:34, 14 August 2012 (UTC)
Do we really need a collective template for all these objects? If we look at the website of the Association of the Castles, Palaces and Manors of Latvia, we can see that the former Daugavpils District alone has 39 entries in total. Are you sure, when new articles appear, it won't be too bulky? I guess for that reason the Latvian wiki has a separate template for medieval castles. --glossologist (talk) 18:05, 14 August 2012 (UTC)
I think you're both correct. To have it separate by 5 cultural regions seems logic. As we're talking about history here, a "timeline" idea could also be added to the template. So let's leave the "ruins vs. preserved" to a better List of Castles and List of Palaces and Manors. Subdivide them how ?
You're right, we can't make it bulky. The Castles in Latvia template also lists palaces and manors. You're suggesting another template right ? Krenakarore TK 11:55, 15 August 2012 (UTC)
Maybe we could first of all divide it into 5 templates, each containing all castles, palaces and manors of one of the culture-historical regions? Another option could be not having any template at all, because we already have the objects listed on separate pages (List of castles in Latvia & List of palaces and manor houses in Latvia) and a link to one of these lists in the See also section would suffice. --glossologist (talk) 13:06, 15 August 2012 (UTC)
I see your point, but the list(s) could be improved to distinguish those which are in ruins from those which are not, or under reconstruction, and even relate those which belonged to the Livonian Order from those that didn't, and that's something which could never be alocated in a template. Those lists should be bettered anyway. I beliwve 5 templates would be too much, once we have only castles, palaces and manors (this will be discussed in more detail on the template talk page. Others have the right to speak up their minds too). You see, Maliepa and I are playing a game... that is, I do something, he does something better, I then better what he did until he comes up with a better idea. You see, it's not only placing info on the articles, but making them more presentable. It has nothing to do with knowing more. It feels good to me when I learn from you. Show me more...:) !

Hi Mark, I've been really really busy in real life to concentrate on anything related to Wiki right now. Nonetheless, I've been coming here to see how things are going whenever time allows me to. I apologise for not being able to improve the articles now, but I will come back to them as soon as possible. Thanks for all your contributions to the readers out there. Take care.....:) !

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Aloja parish, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Aloja. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Baltic)[edit]

Hi. I see you are listed as a member of a WikiProject of a Baltic state. I was wondering if anybody who actively works on Estonian, Lithuanian or Latvian articles, would be interested in launching your own Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Baltic), based on the Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic) and Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge. The idea would be to try to bring about 1000 article improvements and creations on this region as an enjoyable challenge and potentially things like National Contests with prizes. If you'd be interested and think it's something you might regularly contribute to, comment and sign up at Talk:Baltic states. If there is interest we can move this to a project somewhere and set something up, thanks. --MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 19:26, 26 September 2016 (UTC)

Europe 10,000 Challenge invite[edit]

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Europe/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like Germany, Italy, the Benelux countries, Iberian Peninsula, Romania, Slovenia etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. If you would like to see masses of articles being improved for Europe and your specialist country like Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon, sign up today and once the challenge starts a contest can be organized. This is a way we can target every country of Europe, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant and also sign under any country sub challenge on the page that you might contribute to! Thank you. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 10:02, 6 November 2016 (UTC)
