Regrettably[edit]

I have had to delete your submission on gunpowder, because it was... it was really not an encyclopedia article. I'm not sure what it was, perhaps it might have been better placed in a scholarly journal?

Also, your submission on La Celestina - I don't think that one was really appropriate either, but I'm less certain; that's why it's in your userspace now (instead of in mainspace).

I am extremely busy today and will not have time to discuss these decisions with you until Sunday; I'm sure another administrator will be willing to help if need be. DS (talk) 13:33, 18 September 2009 (UTC)

If you missed the links, they are at User:Mcapdevila/Catalan gunpowder and User:Mcapdevila/The catalan Celestina. If you need any help with remodeling them, free free to ask. NW (Talk) 17:03, 19 September 2009 (UTC)

Sorry for your fiancee coma[edit]

I was wondering why you deleted/moved my two files! Did I miss a warning? You have explained both cases clearly, but you may not judge an unfinished article The User:Mcapdevila/Catalan gunpowder it appears in the 120 volumes ESPASA Enciclopedia (WIKI pretends to substitute paper Enciclopediae!!)I did not enter the reference but I will

The User:Mcapdevila/The catalan Celestina, Dr. Garcia Valdecasas (Dr. n law & Dean of Bologna University) has proven the author was fron Aragon for the rest the books that backup the theory are referred and available in libraries

Thank you!Mcapdevila (talk) 20:19, 19 September 2009 (UTC)

I just read both pages, and they both read like you did all the research yourself and tried to draw conclusions to everything. We don't do original research here, but rather we write what has already been researched. I think that's another reason why the pages you created were deleted. (Remember that they're not your pages; once you hit the "Save page" button, they become the community's pages and can be edited mercilessly within guidelines and policies.) Hope this helps, MuZemike 22:06, 19 September 2009 (UTC)

Very sad news[edit]

Thank you for caring about my fiancee; however, you misunderstood what I posted (although, in all fairness, I was not thinking too clearly when I posted it).

Yes, she was in a coma. But then she stopped being in a coma.

There are two ways that someone can stop being in a coma:

you can wake up.... or you can die. And she did not wake up.

To repeat, though - thank you for caring. DS (talk) 00:03, 21 September 2009 (UTC)

Moved Catalan gunpowder & Catalan Celestina[edit]

I think I have corrected all the issues... They were unfinished... But on the other hand...

Do you think anyone can consider being my own work, the fact of publishing works from other people already published in encyclopediae or research books 5, 30 or 80 years ago? (80 years ago I wasn't even born) The only thing I shouldn't do is to draw my own conclusions, but this is not the case, for I just publish assertions from other people's works already published in other books or encyclopediae

I've copied the references from worldcat.org

Spanish Armada[edit]

I noticed you put a panorama section on this page. I've made some changes, and opened a discussion here, if you wish to comment. Regards, Xyl 54 (talk) 15:30, 6 October 2011 (UTC)


Panorama[edit]

Spanish Armada#Panorama
notice the article has aquired a panorama; I've moved it down, as it was too obtrusive parked in the middle of the History section. I've also converted it to a normal image file. 

The caption there (and on the image) said "At least two catalan flags hoisted on two Armada ships against what it has been said officially in the spanish records" which seems prety dubious, so I've brought it here for discussion.
I presume it refers to the red-striped flag on the foreground ship; is there any evidence this flag represents Catalonia? The figure referred to as Elizabeth I has the same flag, as does the ship ahead of the galleass, together with the flag of St George; so I'd hazard a guess the flag in question represents England. And the List of ships of the Spanish Armada doesn't mention a Catalan squadron. Does anybody know any more about this? Xyl 54 (talk) 15:24, 6 October 2011 (UTC)

Xyl54..First of all... there is a main difference between the Queen's flag (5 red stripes on white) & the catalan flag (4 red stripes on yellow)...
If you read thouroughtly this you will learn why it may exist St.George cross and the catalan flag on the same ship
Well! here is the point! St.George's cross has never been a Castilian sign.. but.. a Catalan sign!... Philip V has banned it in the Nueva Planta decrees.
Flags explanation... besides.. look how different is the Crow's nest of the ship with the Tudor flag, from the two ships I've pointed as catalan
St.George cross in Lepanto
St.George cross with Jaume I
I have a bunch of books prior to 1969 that in the list of armada ships do not mention La Girona (can it be more catalan?), of course after the wreck was found they couldn't deny it.. but saying the name came from his owner, someone undocumented called Girón
Mixture of St.George cross with catalan flags...England won..the ship that's sinking half top-left.. must be spanish.. look at the flag&aft-castle&crow's nest...
--Mcapdevila (talk) 09:59, 7 October 2011 (UTC)
OK Manuel; first of all, your edits posting of the picture here, and on Commons, look like you are trying to make a point, and are contrary to WP policy on maintaining a neutral point of view.
As far as this article is concerned it was the armada of the King of Spain and "was composed of 151 ships, 8,000 sailors and 18,000 soldiers, and bore 1,500 brass guns and 1,000 iron guns"; where they came from, and where their crews were born, is not an issue for this article, though it might be relevant at the "List of Ships" article. If you have a reliable English language source that describes a Catalan squadron in the Armada, or lists some specifically Catalan ships, then you should suggest it’s addition on the talkpage there.
The issue for this article is whether it is improved by the addition of a panoramic view of Senyeres’ painting, which I’d say is borderline. I’ve made some improvements to the arrangement and positioning of it, but what it does not need is a caption seeking to make some point about Catalan nationalism. Do you see? Xyl 54 (talk) 14:35, 7 October 2011 (UTC)

Gravelines coast with no cliffs.

— Precedingunsigned comment added by Mcapdevila (talkcontribs) 18:38, 7 October 2011 (UTC)

This is just a sample of the tipical Cornwall coastline with cliffs

Preceding unsigned comment added by Mcapdevila (talkcontribs) 18:49, 7 October 2011 (UTC)

(I've moved these down, per Talk page guidelines; contributions should be in chronological order. Second image converted to File, and signed using "unsigned" template. Xyl 54 (talk) 13:49, 8 October 2011 (UTC))

What are you trying to say here, exactly? Xyl 54 (talk) 13:51, 8 October 2011 (UTC)

So now the caption reads
"A painting of Nicholas Hilliard (who fought in the battle), showing the "Invincible Armada" sailing off the "cliffs" of the coast of Cornwall (mistaken by some authors, for the Gravelines coast, wich has no "cliffs" at all). At least two Spanish flags hoisted on two Armada ships, one in the center of the picture. (Not to be confused with that of Elizabeth I watching from ashore)."
which is pretty pointy.
It is also Original Research; what is the source for any of the statements made? The only neutral thing that can be said out of this is that it is a painting by Nicholas Hilliard, and that it depicts the Armada.
So I suggest the caption "“The Armada” by Nicholas Hilliard". OK? Xyl 54 (talk) 13:58, 8 October 2011 (UTC)

I have removed all catalan references so please stop talking about INH whatsoever..
I have no references for Plymouth (although obvious) but I inserted the refs. for "red+and+yellow+spanish+ensign" do you want more? Relating to the "borderline" you stated.. I will add that "Una, grande y libre ended in 1978..thanks for your impartiality (when you said it was an english flag you were not impartial at all..)--Mcapdevila (talk) 14:22, 8 October 2011 (UTC)
You need to stop edit warring over this, and come to an agreement.
And thank you for the reference, but you are missing the point.
You've stated that this is “the "Invincible Armada" sailing off the "cliffs" of the coast of Cornwall” and that some authors “mistakenly” say these are the Gravelines coast; however plausible your reasoning, it is Original Research unless you can back it up. This (at the BBC website) calls it “The Battle of Gravelines” as does reference which states “it must be the battle of Gravelines” (p129).
You also say this is “a painting of Nicholas Hilliard” (which I’d accepted), though your ref says this “cannot be supported” (p126); you also say that he “fought in the battle”; where is your evidence of that?
Also, your comments in the article, about my query over the English flag, is editing to make a point; those comments should have been made here. And I've no idea what your comment about 1978 is supposed to mean, but my comment about the image being "borderline" is colloquial; it means I felt the value of the image to the article is marginal, particularly if it is going to be a cause of conlict; if that is the case we can probably do without it.
As for the rest of your caption, the image is supposed to illustrate the subject; I fail to see the importance of pointing out that two of the Spanish ships are flying Spanish flags or that Elizabeth I is standing by an English flag.
Your reference (p123) states the painting is “Elizabeth I and the Spanish Armada” and is attributed to the Worshipful Society of Apothecaries; my ref says it is “The Battle of Gravelines” by Nicholas Hilliard; which caption do you want to use? Xyl 54 (talk) 15:28, 8 October 2011 (UTC)
Ok, I couldn't express with more concise words the reference I've contributed with the superb work carried out by Karen Hearn. I've modified the last reference with my original reference of page 129 that explains much better the "Gravelines" choice for the title.--Mcapdevila (talk) 05:02, 9 October 2011 (UTC)
Fair enough, your reference is better, there; it takes the reader to the description, without having to comb the article for it. Are you happy with the caption as it stands, now? Xyl 54 (talk) 12:53, 9 October 2011 (UTC)
I've said your caption is brilliant, but you didn't know how to differentiate a Catalan flag from an english flag in those paintings (as all my colleagues at INH.cat do but the other way round). I know a little about it for I've been studying the Armada since 1971. I arrived at Cowes as a Baron Yachting Instruments service engineer in 1971, and one of my coleagues shouted at me "Hi wog.. how is your fleet since the last time we sunked it? Here came my interest about it.. I've been sailing along all the southern coast with my good friend Rodney Pattisson so I know most of it--85.50.90.36 (talk) 16:10, 9 October 2011 (UTC)..Sorry..my IP..
Therefore one day I will make an article to teach people how to differenciate them, this is the goal of wikipedia isn't it? at least that was my conversation with Jimmy Wales last year at Gdansk "creating a WYSIWYG interface to allow retired professionals (lawyers, architects, etc...) editing good articles on their speciality to teach other people their knowledge".. he agreed with me and said that a WYSIWYG editor is planned for 2012.--Mcapdevila (talk) 16:18, 9 October 2011 (UTC)
Manuel
I saw your comments at Armada talk page (and now here), but thought it was better to reply here, as my comments are not really relevant to the article now.
Firstly, I feel I should apologize for the comments of my xenophobic countrymen; it isn’t acceptable to refer to people in the derogatory way you were spoken to.
And although I agree with the WP principle of pursuing verifiability rather than truth, I don’t necessarily disagree with your questions about Catalan involvement. I knew about the Girona but hadn’t really made the connection with the city (although I visited it once, and was bowled over by the charm of the place): Still, she was a Neopolitan galleass; wasn’t Naples part of the Kingdom of Aragon at the time?
But I would be cautious about reading too much into the Apothecary’s painting; It’s very dramatic, but there is a lot of artistic licence in it, as the Hearn article points out. Still, if you dig anything up I’d be interested in reading it.
Good luck! Xyl 54 (talk) 23:02, 13 October 2011 (UTC)

In re your marine sandglass edits...[edit]

Great work, and thanks for good referencing… Note nearly all content -- including the sentence about multiple sandglass apparati -- were already there, in the article, when I arrived. If you are sure that or other content is wrong, remove it -- but otherwise leave it in and create a section in talk to discuss the change.

Otherwise, I have one request -- make sure in all cases, that all content in the lead (lede, opening, introduction) also appears later in the main body of the article, and then -- this is important -- put the citations in the main body, not the lead. This is a request, from me, a fellow editor that has worked here.

Bottom line, the article is much improved in content and sourcing, and I am happy for your return and contributions. Cheers. 12.49.20.42 (talk) 23:19, 3 November 2014 (UTC)

Edit summaries[edit]

Hi there.

When editing an article on Wikipedia, you will see a small field labeled "Edit summary" shown under the main edit box. It looks like this:

Edit summary (Briefly describe your changes)

 

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.

Speedy deletion nomination of LED lightpad[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on LED lightpad, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page seems to be unambiguous advertising which only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become encyclopedic. Please read the guidelines on spam and Wikipedia:FAQ/Organizations for more information.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here.

Speedy deletion nomination of Tracing LED pad[edit]

Hello Mcapdevila,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Tracing LED pad for deletion, because it appears to duplicate an existing Wikipedia article, [[{{{article}}}]].

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. Deunanknute (talk) 19:34, 27 January 2015 (UTC)

Portolan charts[edit]

Hi Mcapdevila, I'm afraid there is no such thing as a 'portolan projection'. Also, the text you show about portolan charts is no longer part of the present mainstream research on the subject. If you are interested, here are some links to relevant (and relatively recent) scholarly works on portolan charts: [1], [2], [3]. The last one (no free copy, sorry) is written in Catalan by Ramón Pujades, from Barcelona. But if you are really interested in the subject, here is an announcement of an academic meeting that will take place in Lisbon, next year: [4]. best regards from Lisbon, Alvesgaspar (talk) 09:09, 22 October 2015 (UTC)

Alvesgaspar, thanks a lot for your comments.. which I've used to find references for the needed answer, you have proven good knowledge in your very ..very interesting paper, knowledge that we all need before trying to impose our point on anything.. by the way congratulations for animated gif of the sextant I've used 6 years ago..

Mcapdevila, sorry to keep reverting you, but a discussion should be in only one place. As they point out in Step 2: Tag the relevant pages, "Please use the discuss parameter to direct to the same talk page. Otherwise, two separate discussions could take place in each of the respective talk pages." Both merge tags point to the discussion at Talk:Portolan chart, and in Talk:Rhumbline network I also provide a link to the discussion. RockMagnetist(talk) 16:08, 22 October 2015 (UTC)

Can you please use narrower categories on your articles?[edit]

I was checking out Category:History for cleanup since people often put way too specific of articles in there, and I noticed that you'd labeled several articles with just the basic "History" category in the last few months. Wikipedia categories aren't like hashtags, you don't want to just use the broadest possible category, you want to use the most specific categories possible. So a book about navigation in Barcelona should not be categorized as "Books", "History", "Spain", but instead "Works about the history of Barcelona", "Books about geography", "History of navigation", etc.

Can you please look at some of your past articles and see if you're using too broad of categories? As a general rule, only extremely broad articles should be in major overarching categories. So if you have anything labeled "History", "Spain", "Books", etc. please refine it down to narrower cats. Thanks! MatthewVanitas (talk) 14:44, 18 January 2016 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Underdog (terme)[edit]
