Secundus[edit]

Your change is great! Makes a lot more sense than the original text. Thanks! --Polylerus (talk) 20:32, 14 November 2008 (UTC)

Monferrato Arte website[edit]

Good to see your name appearing again on my watchlist: I hope to see it very frequently!

With regard to this edit to Province of Asti, though, I wonder whether you looked at the site (which is a brilliant resource of solid information about the localities of the ‘Monferrato Casalese’ and their churches), or at the article Diocese of Casale, which lists the twenty or so parishes which fall within the Province of Asti? They include places of such historical importance as Moncalvo: articles such as that would be enormously useful to people working up the wikipedia articles on places in the province. Ian Spackman (talk) 18:30, 16 June 2009 (UTC)

Yes I do see your point. Though now I think of it, logically it doesn’t really belong to any of the province pages: ideally it should be on the page for the Diocese, and links to the appropriate entry in the directory should be there for each of the communes and one or two other pages, such as the Sacro Monte di Crea. That way anyone wanting to do work on one of the pages, or just read more about the subject, would have the link ready. But that just seems too much work, and we can’t ask the anon who has been adding the link to do it, because he always arrives from a different IP address. It would be simpler if the Province of Casale hadn’t been suppressed—or if it had been reinstated at the same time as the Province of Asti!

Maybe the best compromise would be to add it to the individual commune pages in the case of AT and TO, while leaving it in the pages for AL and the diocese. What do you think? Ian Spackman (talk) 15:51, 18 June 2009 (UTC)

Also worth adding to some of the local artists, now I think of it: Moncalvo and his daughters, for instance. Ian Spackman (talk) 15:54, 18 June 2009 (UTC)

Important Wine Project discussion needs input![edit]

Hello, the Wine Project is currently in the process of hammering out a proposed policy relating to Wikipedia:Notability (wine topics). As Wikipedia and its wine coverage continues to grow, the need for a clear, concise guideline on how Wikipedia's notability policies such as WP:CORP, WP:SIGCOV and WP:NOTE relate to wine articles has emerged. Please review the proposed policy and take part in the talk page discussion Wikipedia_talk:Notability_(wine_topics)#Ready_to_go_live.3F. All input and view points are welcomed.

Palio di Asti[edit]

Piedmont, what do mean when you say "In 1992 the Palio di Asti was combined with the national lottery."? This is on the Palio di Asti page. The national lottery of Italy appears to be Lotto and SuperEnalotto. How could this be combined with the Palio di Asti? Do you mean that betting on the Palio di Asti is administered by the same agency that runs the national lottery? Thanks! AugieWest (talk) 22:42, 4 February 2010 (UTC)

Palio di Asti - historical sources[edit]

Hello Piedmont I've just read about the Palio, I guess that much of it is your own work, especially the historical notes. I am extremely interested in the fact that races were also recorded in the Carolingian and Langobard periods (under the Latin name "curricula"), could you quote your sources? This seems to be a matter of historical significance. The texts listed in the page are old and difficult to find... isn't there more recent research? Thanks, Alberto

Disambiguation link notification for November 18[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Nizza, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Bruno. 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.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 10:56, 18 November 2015 (UTC)

Yes, that was a mistake, which I have now corrected. Piedmont (talk) 11:17, 18 November 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Europe 10,000 Challenge invite[edit]

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Europe/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like Germany, Italy, the Benelux countries, Iberian Peninsula, Romania, Slovenia etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. If you would like to see masses of articles being improved for Europe and your specialist country like Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon, sign up today and once the challenge starts a contest can be organized. This is a way we can target every country of Europe, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant and also sign under any country sub challenge on the page that you might contribute to! Thank you. --MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 21:09, 7 November 2016 (UTC)
