Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Deichkind, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Portemanteau (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.

Edinburgh Photography Workshop?[edit]

Is this what you discussed with Fae? Victuallers (talk) 17:54, 31 May 2012 (UTC)

  • Hi Peter - I've just noticed this mentioned on the WMUK wiki. Is there any more information available about it? Andrew Gray (talk) 14:28, 1 June 2012 (UTC)
    • Hi Andrew, yes there is. I'll update the page the next days and fill in more information. So stay tuned and add the page to your watchlist ;) Regards, Peter Weis (talk) 14:30, 1 June 2012 (UTC)
      • Great! I was just thinking about planning my next trip north to see the family, but maybe I could combine it with something else ;-) Andrew Gray (talk) 14:31, 1 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Thanks for the note; I've signed up (at least provisionally). We don't have very many active Wikipedians in Edinburgh that I know of, but I'll ask around... have you considered a geonotice to target Scots? Andrew Gray (talk) 15:03, 12 June 2012 (UTC)

Hi Peter, I have added the Geonotice for most of Scotland. Let me know if you can see it on your watchlist and if there are any problems with the formatting, linking etc. Thanks, Lynch7 13:21, 12 July 2012 (UTC)

Translation of the two images[edit]

Hello Peter,

the caption in the first image is: "This is the only war, where ever England is fighting, the goal of the British war is to destroy the aggressive Japan" (translated more word by word, it says "Japan, who is abusing its military"). On the second line, in a smaller fond, it says "October 1943, Announcement by the British minister of inner affairs". Maybe one can find the original text of the announcement made by the then British minister. The translation into Chinese itself is not a good one. The text is written from left to right.

The caption in the Second image is captured in the description of the image (titel): One for all, All for one. The text is written from right to left. So the first line is One for All and the second is All for One. The third character 為 means "for", 個 (the first in the first line, counted from left, and the last in the second one) means single, 全 (the last in the first line and the first in the second line) means total. --Wing (talk) 21:07, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
