Template:Infobox Slovak municipality[edit]

Hello, you copied this template from sk:Šablóna:Infobox Slovenská obec with the documentation. Please, do not spread this template between articles about cities of Slovakia, but use {{Geobox}}. I recommend you to request delete of this template as useless. --Bonnifac (talk) 20:15, 7 March 2010 (UTC)

Thank you very much for pointing out the possibility for using the Geobox template. It does, indeed, seem to have all of the capability (and more) of the template I had begun to translate from the Slovak Wikipedia. I have incorporated the Geobox template into a small article on Rovensko. I agree with your suggestion to delete the template and documentation I had made. Thanks for the helpful tip. — 09:42, 8 March 2010 (UTC)
I feel honored, when you copied Slovak's templates, but I'm happier to see your decission and discover of Geobox ;). I updated Slovak's infobox yesterday, seeing how awful it looks like here, but we (or just me) are trying to replace infobox with great one geobox, it's long-term job. --Bonnifac (talk) 01:50, 9 March 2010 (UTC)

License tagging for File:PPJ juliste.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:PPJ juliste.jpg. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information; to add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia.

For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 15:08, 8 October 2010 (UTC)

Thanks. I've added Non-free poster template tag. Hope that covers it. Objectivesea (talk) 16:06, 8 October 2010 (UTC)

Alisz Goriupp[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Alisz Goriupp, and it appears to include material copied directly from http://www.worldcat.org/identities/lccn-n2008-66224.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. The article will be reviewed to determine if there are any copyright issues.

If substantial content is duplicated and it is not public domain or available under a compatible license, it will be deleted. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material. You may use such publications as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. See our copyright policy for further details. (If you own the copyright to the previously published content and wish to donate it, see Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials for the procedure.) CorenSearchBot (talk) 12:51, 26 December 2010 (UTC)

I did not consult, or even know about, the Worldcat page cited by the bot. In addition, the material the bot claims to identify as source material is a simple list of publication titles without creative content. The list I put into the article is more comprehensive and, I believe, adds some value by including a rough English translation of the article titles. Accordingly, I have removed the tag placed in the article by the bot. Thanks, though to CorenSearchBot for keeping article authors alert to the potential for copyvios getting into Wikipedia. — Objectivesea (talk) 13:04, 26 December 2010 (UTC)

Meine Wikipedia Seite[edit]

Hallo,

du sprichst auch deutsch, richtig? Könntest du mit meine Wikipedia Seite auf Englisch ünersetzen? Oder kennst du jemanden der meine Seite bearbeiten könnte, damit sie auf dem genauen Stand gebracht werden kann?

gruss Dinzey (talk) 15:40, 11 January 2011 (UTC)

Ich habe einen Anfang gemacht, in die Neufassung der deutschen Seite ins Englische. Fühlen Sie sich frei, um es zu bearbeiten, wenn ich Fehler in der Übersetzung gemacht haben.
Freundliche Grüße, Objectivesea (talk) 11:52, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

Hallo Objectivesea,

Danke für den Anfang, wie können wir die gesamte Deutsche Seite ins Englische weiter Übersetzen? Wollen wir da Schritt für Schritt zusammen vorgehen? Klasse dass du das machst aber es sind viele Fehler drin. Ich könnte dir für jeden Abschnitt mal den Text geben, den müsstest du nur korregieren? 1. Personal life: Michél Mazingu-Sinda-Dinzey (October 15, born in 1972 in Berlin) he is a retierd German / Congolese International football player. Über deine Antwort würde ich mich sehr freuen Gruss Dinzey (talk) 15:09, 26 January 2011 (UTC)

Ich habe nichts dagegen zu tun ein bißchen mehr, aber Sie müssen angeben, was sind die vielen Fehler, damit ich korrigieren könnte. Besser noch, warum nicht bearbeiten Sie selbst den Artikel?
Objectivesea (talk) 05:41, 2 February 2011 (UTC)

Hallo,

weil ich nicht weiss wie ich den selber korrigieren kann.Ich habe den kompletten Text vorbereitet, ist bei mir unter Diskussion zu sehen, im Prizip genau der gleiche Text in Deutsch übersetzt. Aber wenn du das möchtest, kann ich dir auch immer die Ergänzungen sagen? Gruss Dinzey (talk) 15:28, 2 February 2011 (UTC)

Ich habe drei Absätze angefügt. Informationen zum Bearbeiten der Wikipedia finden Sie hier: de:Hilfe:Seite_bearbeiten.
Objectivesea (talk) 22:51, 3 February 2011 (UTC)

Hallo,

ich habe dir mal den Link kopiert, vielleicht kannst du mal bearbeiten? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Dinzey Unter eigende Diskussion habe ich das im grossen und ganzen mal erstellt. Ich hoffe das ist so Ok. Gruss Dinzey (talk) 11:03, 6 February 2011 (UTC)

Mail for the Interior[edit]

Good evening Objectivesea,

I received your YGM message on my talk, but did not find any mail. The function has worked for other users in the past, so I'm wondering if there was a problem if or you could resend. Hope you are well. The Interior(Talk) 01:56, 22 January 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know. I'd asked for a copy to be sent to my personal e-mail address, and had not received it, so I guess I made some kind of mistake on the original attempt to send. I've just resent it, and a copy has also showed up in my e-mail box, so I think it worked this time.   Objectivesea (talk) 10:11, 22 January 2011 (UTC)
Received! thanks Objectivesea! The Interior(Talk) 15:45, 22 January 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the WP:ETF userbox[edit]

Objectivesea,

Thanks for the new WP:ETF userbox. I created the task force years ago, but I was never able to garner any significant community involvement and it has long been a dormant project. Just out of curiosity, are you interested in reviving it? With a significant number of Esperanto speakers here and a productive and successful Esperanto Wikipedia, I think that there is still a lot of potential in the ETF. I'm interested to hear what you think. Take care!

TFCforever (talk) 19:37, 22 January 2011 (UTC)

You're welcome. I like doing little graphical things. I am indeed interested in the idea and was unaware that the ETF is considered dormant for now. I'd like for us maybe to take a survey of active Wikipedian Esperantists to determine their level of interest and respective areas of expertise. Perhaps we should write a "Goals and Objectives" or "Mission Statement" to clarify things, both what's included and what is not. For example, is the goal of the Task Force to translate into English various articles from the Esperanto Wikipedia (biographies, organizations and clubs, etc.; to translate into Esperanto the Good Articles and Featured Articles or the missing ones from the essential Top 1,000 that we find existing elsewhere; to polish existing articles; or are there other important goals not mentioned here? That is, what is the scope of the ETF?
Objectivesea (talk) 05:41, 2 February 2011 (UTC)
Oops. I see that a lot of this ground is already covered at the ETF's main page. Sorry for the unnecessary babble above.

John Atta Mills[edit]

I removed your recent addition to John Atta Mills as you had not provided a reliable source with a reputation for fact checking and accuracy to support a claim that has been contested by other editors. In addition, the content contained analysis and commentary that was not supported even by the self published websites that you had linked. -- The Red Pen of Doom 12:54, 27 July 2012 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Hans Michael Maitzen[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Hans Michael Maitzen has been proposed for deletion because it appears to have no references. Under Wikipedia policy, all newly created biographies of living persons must have at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within ten days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one. j⚛e deckertalk 00:33, 26 August 2012 (UTC)

Thanks, Joe, for pointing out the lack of references. I have now added a partial list of his publications, as well as footnotes pointing to his official biography page at the International Academy of Sciences. Hope that works. — 03:03, 26 August 2012 (UTC)

Re: Richard Hofstadter‎[edit]

since "fellow traveller" is generally pejorative in the English context, I replaced with "informal supporter" but maintained the original link to the "Fellow traveller" article, which provides more context on the term

I completely agree. However, the problem is that the primary contributor, Rjensen, has invested a great deal of time (107 edits) adding pejoratives to the article.[1] I would greatly appreciate it if you would review Richard Hofstadter‎ for accuracy. I have previously brought this to the attention of Rjensen, who predictably waved his credentials around and tried to shoo me away. I believe he has introduced selective and I might say sneaky bias into this and other articles. Thanks. Viriditas (talk) 08:56, 24 October 2014 (UTC)

Move of Henry Louis Gates to Henry Louis Gates, Jr.[edit]

I appreciate your expertise in replacing the main title header Henry Louis Gates with Henry Louis Gates, Jr. but, in the process, the article's lengthy revision history has become hidden from all but the most knowledgeable users through its current positioning as the revision history of the redirect Henry Louis Gates. To the best of my knowledge, there would appear to be two ways to remedy the situation: 1) moving the article back to Henry Louis Gates (without touching the well-situated Talk:Henry Louis Gates, Jr.), then deleting what would again become a redirect, Henry Louis Gates, Jr. (with its brief revision history of six entries) and subsequently moving Henry Louis Gates again into the empty space left by the deletion of Henry Louis Gates, Jr. The other remedy, 2) would involve the more-complicated procedure of Wikipedia:How to fix cut-and-paste moves, with the article placed in the Wikipedia:Cut-and-paste-move repair holding pen. Since I don't have the technical proficiency to handle such matters, I thought of consulting with you and then, if need be, placing it in the holding pen. —Roman Spinner (talk)(contribs) 20:16, 28 January 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, Roman. I tried following your directions, but as I am not an administrator I do not, apparently, have the authority to do what is needed. I have requested the history merge be done, and a template acknowledging this is on the "Henry Louis Gates, Jr." page. Objectivesea (talk) 01:01, 29 January 2015 (UTC)

Claire Griffiths[edit]

Greetings - since you created this page and seem to be relatively active I thought I would talk to you rather than anything else. Reviewing the WP:ACADEMIC I can't see on the page that this academic has notability. The references only say that she is an academic. The references almost all come from university web sites. Can you add something which shows that notability? Otherwise the page is likely to be deleted or redirected. 🍺 Antiqueight chat 14:15, 5 February 2016 (UTC)
