Request for help on Eugene O'Neill conflict[edit]

As someone who has contributed to the Eugene O'Neill article, perhaps you would be willing to look at the (rather one-sided) discussion on that article's talk page regarding Emerson7's deletion of cited materials, Ah, Wilderness NOT O'Neill's only comedy. I would like to have a Request for Comment process initiated, but must have at least one other editor to have contributed to the discussion before an RfC can be started. Thank you.

In Appreciation for your consistently good work on many articles, especially Pasadena. DocOfSocTalk 22:25, 13 August 2011 (UTC)

That is very kind of you. Thank you. Mike Hayes (talk) 18:09, 17 August 2011 (UTC)


i noticed your edit on the maimonides page regarding siddur/Siddur. siddur is a hebrew word, used to mean 'prayer book'. so, it is not a specific document/book but rather a generic name for any prayer book. on the other hand....a capital S isn't so bad since it does refer to one kind of book.... Soosim (talk) 18:15, 15 August 2011 (UTC)

That's what I asked someone to clarify in the note attached to my edit. Thank you for the information. On the other hand The Book of Common Prayer is the Anglican prayer book, but "Anglican Prayer Book" would probably be accurate because, as I pointed out, it is a specific prayer book that is being referred too.

Because it's the fisrt time I see a wp user talking so well about traductions that can be made. And especially from french Mike Coppolano (talk) 09:21, 13 November 2011 (UTC)
Thank you. Merci bien. I consult Wikipedia in other languages (especially French and German) constantly. This can often resolve ambiguities and lack of clarity in the English language article. I am not an expert linguist but I have a working knowledge of several other languages that is adequate for general purposes. Mike Hayes (talk) 17:01, 13 November 2011 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited George Rex, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Procurator and Registrar (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). 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.

Yes, I know but I cannot find a direct link that adequately fits and I feel that one is necessary. (Yeah, I know I'm talking to a robot.) Mike Hayes (talk) 07:29, 27 August 2012 (UTC)

Translation of 95 year old philosophy.[edit]


I am trying to get a team together who would finally translate "Sistema di logica come teoria del conoscere" into English. I thought Wikipedia's list of Italian-to-English translators might be a good group to 'hit up' on this subject. If personal assistance cannot be provided, perhaps suggestions or helping point me in the right direction of who might be willing to help? Best regards & thank you. Nagelfar (talk) 05:23, 27 August 2012 (UTC)

I don't speak Italian, although I read modern Italian with some ease. The translations I have done have been with the help of on-line translation applications. I compare the machine translation to the Italian original and try to find a compromise between the two. It is a laborious and time-consuming process that I would only ever use for straightforward subjects like a biography and one that is relatively short. A subject as complicated as the one covered by this book, is far beyond my competence to attempt (as well as my desire for that matter). Mike Hayes (talk) 07:36, 27 August 2012 (UTC)
Thanks very much for the prompt reply Mike. I do hope I will find some as eager as myself to get on this. Sorry to have bothered you. Nagelfar (talk) 18:22, 27 August 2012 (UTC)

Italics and quotation marks[edit]

Hi there! You just made this [2] edit, which I agree with, to the Voltaire article, with the edit summary "Please read the help page on italics and quotation marks–in particular, both at the same time, are deprecated." Could you give me the actual link to that policy? I'd like to check it out. Awien (talk) 18:33, 3 November 2012 (UTC)

Marietta Piccolomini[edit]

Hi Mike, I have just expanded your article about Marietta Piccolomini basing myself upon the Italian one. Should you feel like taking a look at my edits (my English is not very good), you'd oblige me very much. Cheers.--Jeanambr (talk) 18:40, 16 April 2014 (UTC)

Thank you very much.--Jeanambr (talk) 16:40, 19 April 2014 (UTC)

John Davidson (poet)[edit]

nice work on John Davidson (poet). I fussbudgeted with your references. I trust you meant to use Cite SBDEL rather than template:SBDEL. the EB1911 article, has not yet been proofread at wikisource. (talk) 16:59, 12 May 2014 (UTC)
