A belated welcome![edit]

Sorry for the belated welcome, but the cookies are still warm! Face-smile.svg

Here's wishing you a belated welcome to Wikipedia, Morretor. I see that you've already been around a while and wanted to thank you for your contributions. Though you seem to have been successful in finding your way around, you may benefit from following some of the links below, which help editors get the most out of Wikipedia:

Also, when you post on talk pages you should sign your name using four tildes (~~~~); that should automatically produce your username and the date after your post.

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! If you have any questions, feel free to leave me a message on my talk page, consult Wikipedia:Questions, or place {{helpme}} on your talk page and ask your question there.

Again, welcome! Dr. K. 19:31, 10 August 2017 (UTC)

Thank you for this notice. --Morretor (talk) 11:46, 12 August 2017 (UTC)


Please stop. I have explained to you why this is incorrect, yet you persist. That is textbook WP:IDHT editing. Please find something more constructive to do on Wikipedia. Cheers, Constantine 13:26, 14 August 2017 (UTC)

Again, do not confuse a provisional honorific held by a person while he or she is a head of government/state due to protocol with a permanent honorific. Greece does not have the latter. Constantine 18:35, 18 October 2017 (UTC)
Please don't remove sourced content. Greece then wasn't a state with the in the sense that we know it today. Kapodistrias 'WAS a Count; he had honorifics... --Morretor (talk) 11:18, 19 October 2017 (UTC)
References are well and good, but you must be aware of what exactly it is the references document. "Excellency" is a standard form of address for high officials; it is a courtesy title, not a nobiliary title like Count or Royal Highness, nor a professional title like Professor or Doctor. Hence "Excellency" is not an intrinsic title of a person, any more than "Mr." is. Tsipras is also an Excellency as Prime Minister, as is any minister or ambassador. This does not mean that it is a permanent honorific. In addition to that comes the fact that in Greece, titles like that are simply not used, and are even prohibited by the constitution, period. This has been so since the very first constitutions of the War of Independence (which antedate Kapodistrias' election as Governor). Constantine 11:45, 19 October 2017 (UTC)
What about his honorifics when he was a European diplomat outside Greece? Dr. K. 18:09, 19 October 2017 (UTC)
Same applies; as Foreign minister of Russia, he was an "excellency". As a former statesman, he of course would have been addressed with the title as a courtesy even after that. But that is not the point: the honorific entries is a) for titles that are intrinsic (i.e., permanent, like nobiliary or professional titles) and even then b) only for countries that use them. This is applicable to the UK and Commonwealth, and some other title-obsessed countries like Austria, but not for the majority of the world. An infobox should only include what is pertinent and necessary, and nothing more; "Excellency" is a decoration, as much as "Comrade" would be for the page of Stalin or Xi Jinping (both of whom BTW are equally excellencies in an international diplomatic context).

October 2017[edit]

Information icon Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. You appear to be repeatedly reverting or undoing other editors' contributions at Ioannis Kapodistrias. Although this may seem necessary to protect your preferred version of a page, on Wikipedia this is known as "edit warring" and is usually seen as obstructing the normal editing process, as it often creates animosity between editors. Instead of reverting, please discuss the situation with the editor(s) involved and try to reach a consensus on the talk page.

If editors continue to revert to their preferred version they are likely to be blocked from editing Wikipedia. This isn't done to punish an editor, but to prevent the disruption caused by edit warring. In particular, editors should be aware of the three-revert rule, which says that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Edit warring on Wikipedia is not acceptable in any amount, and violating the three-revert rule is very likely to lead to a block. Thank you. Dr. K. 11:21, 19 October 2017 (UTC)
