Villevieille[edit]

Maybe I can't see, but I'm not quite able to find any info on Villevieille (I'm about the only person who can spell that). Seeing you created it, I wanted your help. Cheers! Basketball110 02:50, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

See my edits at Villevieille and Châteauneuf-Villevieille. Hope this helps. olivier (talk) 19:22, 19 January 2008 (UTC)
Did you move the content of Villevieille to C-V (you also deserve a barnstar)? Basketball110 23:09, 19 January 2008 (UTC)
I moved some of the content (I think your additions) from V to C-V. Thanks for the star! olivier (talk) 07:00, 20 January 2008 (UTC)
Great! You deserved the star. Basketball110 16:52, 20 January 2008 (UTC)

Villemurlin[edit]

Nuvola apps important yellow.svg

Another editor has added the "{{prod}}" template to the article Villemurlin, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but the editor doesn't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and has explained why in the article (see also Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not and Wikipedia:Notability). Please either work to improve the article if the topic is worthy of inclusion in Wikipedia or discuss the relevant issues at its talk page. If you remove the {{prod}} template, the article will not be deleted, but note that it may still be sent to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

I, Basketball110, award you this barnstar for a great job on French articles. Basketball110 23:11, 19 January 2008 (UTC)

The Roseline[edit]

I have revised this page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roseline The name "Roseline" is a Dan Brown invention unless someone can prove it wrong. BTW, Steven Mizrach is not much of an authority on these matters and his knowledge is limited to say the least - he belongs to the Fringe category.

Saint-Cirgues[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Saint-Cirgues, and it appears to be very similar to another wikipedia page: Saint-Cirgues-de-Prades. It is possible that you have accidentally duplicated contents, or made an error while creating the page— you might want to look at the pages and see if that is the case.

This message was placed automatically, and 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 and it would be appreciated if you could drop a note on the maintainer's talk page. CorenSearchBot (talk) 13:55, 4 February 2008 (UTC)

That was useful: I have now turned the article into a disambiguation page. olivier (talk) 14:02, 4 February 2008 (UTC)

Poverty in India[edit]

Hi, can you please unprotect the page Poverty in India. There is a request for unprotection tag on the article talk page, but no administrator had unprotected the page till now. Otolemur crassicaudatus (talk) 15:22, 5 February 2008 (UTC)

There is no reason for page protection now. So can you unprotect the page. Otolemur crassicaudatus (talk) 15:37, 5 February 2008 (UTC)
I do not see a consensus for unprotecting the page on Talk:Poverty in India. I have deleted the beggar picture though. See my explanation at Talk:Poverty in India. olivier (talk) 15:38, 5 February 2008 (UTC)
The reason for protection was edit-warring. But now no one is reinserting the image. So unprotect the page. Otolemur crassicaudatus (talk) 15:41, 5 February 2008 (UTC)

Of course noone is reinserting the image: the page is protected!! olivier (talk) 15:42, 5 February 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for brining consensus to this page. Your actions were quite appropriate Nikkul (talk) 20:23, 5 February 2008 (UTC)

Poverty in India[edit]

I hate to say it, but it may need protection again over the same image. I've removed it twice, but won't revert any more. Thanks, priyanath talk 17:26, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

OK. I have protected it again, as the edit war resumed. It would be better to reach a clear consensus over the status of this picture this time. olivier (talk) 01:14, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

Beggar image[edit]

Olivier, you keep saying that the beggar image is "shocking". But there are far more shocking images on wikipedia. Here is a list of pornographic images. Also consider the depictions of Muhammad on the respective article. So shocking are those images, that media outlets (Fox news, New York Times, and others) are reporting the widespread opposition to those images. The image of the beggar is, by contrast, a trivial issue.Bless sins (talk) 16:29, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

Please respond on the article's talk page. Thanks.Bless sins (talk) 16:39, 11 February 2008 (UTC)
I am not insisting, I am just giving my opinion. The fact that there is worse around does not mean that this one is not "shocking". olivier (talk) 09:47, 16 February 2008 (UTC)
What do you want me to respond to? I intervened into this article because I was asked to, as an admin. olivier (talk) 09:56, 16 February 2008 (UTC)
My detailed answer is there [1]. olivier (talk) 10:18, 16 February 2008 (UTC)

Administrator Noticeboard thread concerning you[edit]

Please note that there is a thread at on the Administrator's Noticeboard/Incidents that concerns you. Wikipedia:Administrators'_noticeboard/Incidents#Admin_protecting_a_page_after_revert. You may wish to review and comment there. This notification is procedural, I did not create the thread. - Philippe | Talk 17:22, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

Thank you about that but I cannot see it any more. Do you know where I can find it now? Thank you. olivier (talk) 09:30, 16 February 2008 (UTC)
OK I found it and my detailed answer is there [2]. olivier (talk) 10:19, 16 February 2008 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Huang Feng[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

An editor has nominated Huang Feng, an article on which you have worked or that you created, for deletion. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Huang Feng and please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 14:59, 12 February 2008 (UTC)

The nominator does not give much reason for the AfD. Anyway, it seems like there is a consensus for keeping the article. olivier (talk) 17:10, 16 February 2008 (UTC)

Autoire[edit]

Great work! It's a nice page, just what Mr. Bigglesworth imaged! Basketball110 :) 03:24, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

Wikipedia:WikiProject French communes[edit]

This is a WikiProject of which you are a member. It is inactive, and your support in revival would be appreciated. Basketball110 what famous people say 21:03, 24 February 2008 (UTC)

Just look at the status page to notice that it is far from being inactive! olivier (talk) 16:32, 29 February 2008 (UTC)
Albert Herring, JJ, and I have been working, and we'd like to welcome you back. We have succesfully revived it. Wikipedia:WikiProject French communes. Cheers, Basketball110 what famous people say ♣ 17:02, 2 March 2008 (UTC)
Thank you. I have seen the work that you have done at the project page and it looks good. I will try to join again in a short while. Also, you can have a look at my contributions list: I have been quite active on the French communes front. olivier (talk) 17:06, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

Saint-Just-d'Ardèche[edit]

Salut Olivier,

Pour quelle raison as-tu renommé Saint-Just, Ardèche en Saint-Just-d'Ardèche ? D'après l'INSEE, le nom officiel de la commune est "Saint-Just". [3] Cordialement, Korg (talk) 01:18, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

Je m'etais fie au titre de l'article francais. Effectivement l'INSEE, IGN, Quid donnent "Saint-Just" comme nom de la commune. J'ai donc retabli le nom d'article original. Une recherche Google donne toutefois le nom "Saint-Just-d'Ardèche" comme relativement courant. Je l'ai ajoute dans le paragraphe d'intro. Merci pour la remarque. olivier (talk) 06:05, 8 March 2008 (UTC)
Merci ! J'ai renommé l'article français par la même occasion. Korg (talk) 14:34, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

infobox French commune[edit]

Hi Olivier,

since you're obviously interested: I'm adding an automatic map to the infobox French commune, see: Template talk:French commune#Automatic map. Markussep Talk 18:27, 11 March 2008 (UTC)

There's two things we need to sort out. Adding the WikiProject French communes work group to the main france template so all of the articles can be tagged as part of the french communes group and creating some sort of register to assess which communes have got infoboxes. ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 11:15, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

I agree with that. I am not sure how this is technically done, though. olivier (talk) 15:51, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

WikiProject Beijing[edit]

Hey Olivier/Archives 2008! I'm currently planning the launch of the WikiProject Beijing, depending on if enough other editors would be interested in such a project. I saw you have edited the main Beijing page recently or in several times in the past and therefor might be interested. If you are, please sign: User:Poeloq/WikiProject_Beijing. As I am posting this to quite a few editors, I am not watching your page and would ask you to reply with any comment or questions on my talk page. Cheers, Poeloq (talk) 21:43, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

Tasque (software)[edit]

Thanks. I was actually in the process of splitting the page, and moving part of its content. olivier (talk) 05:08, 3 May 2008 (UTC)

New Project[edit]

Myself and several other editors have been compiling a list of very active editors who would likely be available to help new editors in the event they have questions or concerns. As the list grew and the table became more detailed, it was determined that the best way to complete the table was to ask each potential candidate to fill in their own information, if they so desire. This list is sorted geographically in order to provide a better estimate as to whether the listed editor is likely to be active.

If you consider yourself a very active Wikipedian who is willing to help newcomers, please either complete your information in the table or add your entry. If you do not want to be on the list, either remove your name or just disregard this message and your entry will be removed within 48 hours. The table can be found at User:Useight/Highly Active, as it has yet to have been moved into the Wikipedia namespace. Thank you for your help. Useight (talk) 17:49, 3 May 2008 (UTC)

Hong Kong FAR[edit]

Hong Kong has been nominated for a featured article review. Articles are typically reviewed for two weeks. Please leave your comments and help us to return the article to featured quality. If concerns are not addressed during the review period, articles are moved onto the Featured Article Removal Candidates list for a further period, where editors may declare "Keep" or "Remove" the article from featured status. The instructions for the review process are here. Reviewers' concerns are here. --Joowwww (talk) 11:44, 4 May 2008 (UTC)

Wikipedia:WikiProject Years[edit]

This WikiProject is having a revival and is trying to determine the direction it will be heading in the future. Questions are being asked, and exciting things are coming in the future, including the bringing of 1345 and other year articles to GA and even FA status. You are listed as a member and are invited to respond to this roll-call by putting an asterisk next to your username on the members list to show that you are still active in the project. Thanks.

Disambiguation pages[edit]

Please be aware that the manual of style for disambiguation pages is different from that for article pages. In particular there should be only one link per line. Thanks, Rich257 (talk) 21:28, 10 August 2008 (UTC)
