Re Goinba[edit]

Please go ahead and make the move yourself if you believe it is uncontroversial. I looked at the histories so there's nothing abnormal to fix. Remember to move the talk page and leave a redirect. Also, leave a good edit summary. We all had to learn by doing. --Mike Cline (talk) 19:20, 8 November 2011 (UTC)

November 2011[edit]

Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. Regarding your edits to Talk:Xixabangma, it is recommended that you use the preview button before you save; this helps you find any errors you have made, reduces edit conflicts, and prevents clogging up recent changes and the page history. Thank you. ––虞海 (Yú Hǎi) 14:31, 22 November 2011 (UTC)

Welcome to Wikipedia. Everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia. However, talk pages are meant to be a record of a discussion; deleting or editing legitimate comments, as you did at Talk:Xixabangma, is considered bad practice, even if you meant well. Even making spelling and grammatical corrections in others' comments is generally frowned upon, as it tends to irritate the users whose comments you are correcting. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you. When you misrefactored my comment, my comment is splitted. This result in I have to refactored your comment again in order to keep my comment complete. ––虞海 (Yú Hǎi) 14:33, 22 November 2011 (UTC) You have new message/s Hello. You have a new message at 虞海's talk page.

Since the Shishapangma/Xixabangma name discussion has begun, I occasionally (and sometimes frequently:) look at the involved editors' talk pages. Lately I’ve been trying to think more, listen more, and write less, but I felt the need to say something here. Rather than making unsubstantiated accusations, polite or otherwise, please provide evidence that Pseudois is modifying other editors’ comments. I have been involved in the naming discussion since the beginning and I have seen no such evidence (it is of course possible that I have missed something). Although Pseudois does sometimes answer long passages point by point immediately after the paragraph in which the point is made, this is a very different thing. Also, given the quality of Pseudois’ (and Yu Hai’s) contributions to the Xixabangma naming discussion, I find Yu Hai’s messages for beginning Wikipedians both condescending and undeserved.--Wikimedes (talk) 03:32, 23 November 2011 (UTC)
You didn't see what happened yesterday night: Pseudo was not familiar with Wikitext and he made my comment broken in display (ok, I admit that when I use the template it says "refactoring" others' comment but now/after subst it becomes "editing", which makes it a bit confusing), and I don't think I made any accuse to him by simply 2 notifications, which are all level-1. Now things are fine: he understood how to use "::#:" syntax and {{Interrupted}} template in order not to make the inserted text confusing. ––虞海 (Yú Hǎi) 04:12, 23 November 2011 (UTC)
@虞海: My answer to your notifications can be found here.--Pseudois (talk) 05:18, 23 November 2011 (UTC)
@虞海: You might want to read Wikipedia:Don't template the regulars and with that in mind, consider how anyone would feel after being templated about the preview button of all things. Come on man.--Racerx11 (talk) 06:39, 23 November 2011 (UTC)

Poll to determine support for move from Shishapangma to Xixabangma[edit]

You have been involved in the recent naming discussion at Talk:Xixabangma. There is a new poll to determine support for the move from Shishapangma to Xixabangma. If you are interested, please provide your opinion here.--Wikimedes (talk) 00:53, 26 November 2011 (UTC)

Samding Monastery[edit]

Have you seen the bad typeset used in this article? Have you noticed the article must be wikified?? Or do you engage revering without thinking??? Plus, with the original Tibetan text given, Wylie become duplicate. Also, The article gave wrong Wylie transliteration, which may cause errors. ––虞海 (Yú Hǎi) 16:01, 10 December 2011 (UTC)

Indeed, I noticed both the bad typeset of the previous version, as well as your edits which have caused the unexplained removal of information and the modification of gompa to goinpa (which I see you have again reverted). Don't you remember that your gompa to goinba unilateral move has required the intervention of an administrator to restore the orginal version. With a choice between your unexplained deletion/modification and a bad formatting, I preferred the latter one.
Thanks to conform to WP policies and to remain civil. --Pseudois (talk) 19:10, 10 December 2011 (UTC)

Yarlung Tsango River[edit]

For your continued effort in adding quality material to mountaineering related entries I think you fully deserve my praise. Qwrk (talk) 06:54, 9 January 2012 (UTC)

South Tibet[edit]

You're conveniently forgetting the fact that the page now called "South Tibet dispute" was previously called South Tibet until RegentsPark moved it without seeking consensus. I was only trying to undo the damage he did. But I don't want to be involved in an edit war, so I'm not going to revert your edit before the current move request reaches a conclusion. However, it was definitely uncool of you to start an edit war in the middle of an ongoing discussion. --Zanhe (talk) 03:33, 6 February 2012 (UTC)

My only interest on this page is to safeguard the Encyclopaedic nature of Wikipedia. All previous versions do not satisfy this requirement. I have reverted your edits as I had the feeling that you were starting an edit war and had personal issues with RegentsPark. I never edited any article in the past related to this topic, and never had any interaction neither with you nor with Regentspark, so I thought I could attempt a kind a mediation with my propoal of creating a disambiguation page for this topic. Please let's not forget that neutrality is a core principle of WP and all our edits should go in that direction. Thank you.--Pseudois (talk) 04:19, 6 February 2012 (UTC)
PS. If I restablished RegentsPark version of "South Tibet", it is because your redirect does not correspond to the current content of "South Tibet dispute". We have many articles in WP with links to "South Tibet", and these internal links do not aim to refer to the political dispute but to a geographic area. Currently "Arunachal Pradesh" is the closer article we have corresponding to "South Tibet". Let's see what happens with the disambiguation proposal.--Pseudois (talk) 04:25, 6 February 2012 (UTC)

Inner and Outer Tibet[edit]


I hope my explanation was good enough for you to understand why I removed the del notice. Redirects are such tiny fractions of the storage we use on Wiki, they are best used rather than not. If anyone was to search for something, a redirect is the best way to get them to the right place quickly.

For example, try typing this into the search box: Stevie Ray Vaughn - As you can see that is a common misspelling of his surname.

Never feel bad about creating/leaving redirects, we are better having them than not and they are so small they don't affect anything. Chaosdruid (talk) 19:34, 26 February 2012 (UTC)

In recognition of all the work you’ve done lately! (talk) 13:51, 4 April 2012 (UTC)

A couple of issues[edit]

Firstly I am a little confused as to why you reverted my largely cleanup edits to Tibetan sovereignty debate - if you have an issue with my changes you should bring them up on the talk page and/or manage to be a little more careful about which parts you revert - most of my changes were cleanup.

Secondly I am a little confused about South Tibet dispute - after coming from the edit at Tibetan sovereignty debate I reverted your change, upon reflection looks reasonable enough, but I am very confused as to why it wasn't enacted three months ago, is there some context I am missing, or was it just a screw up?

If it was just a screw up that it wasn't done earlier, feel free to revert my edits there. -- Eraserhead1 <talk> 21:43, 10 July 2012 (UTC)

Again you are still refusing to come to the talk page, given you are continuing to revert my edits it is really coming across as really rather poor behaviour. -- Eraserhead1 <talk> 07:49, 13 July 2012 (UTC)
Here a copy of the reply I posted on your talk page:
1. Your edits I reverted at [1] were not "mostly cleanup", but were a strong personal POV pushing from your side not reflected by any consensus on the talk page.
2. My reversion wasn't a blind revert. I carefully read all arguments exposed on the talk page, and couldn't find relevant well-sourced references supporting your edits. To the opposite, Wikimedes edits were well referenced and appeared relevant to the topic.
3. It would save time for all editors if you would use the talk page first before doing hasty reverts such as here, [2] and here. My edits on these three articles ([3], here and here) had a clear summary with direct internal link provided to the talk page where the discussion took place.
4. Before accusing someone of "vandalism", "blind reversion" and "poor behaviour", I would suggest you to be a bit more careful, as such personal attacks do not belong to Wikipedia.
5. Wikipedia is not a battleground, it is an encyclopaedic project. I thank you for remaining civil in future discussions.--Pseudois (talk) 09:40, 13 July 2012 (UTC)
I've replied on my talk page. -- Eraserhead1 <talk> 17:41, 13 July 2012 (UTC)

Tibetan passport[edit]

I'm sorry, but I really don't think we can use it. The dates all looked to me to be in the 1940's - I checked the image pretty carefully. And therefore the copyright notice stating it was in the public domain was incorrect.

And frankly if we disagree over the dates then the image holds limited value if they are simply unreadable. -- Eraserhead1 <talk> 07:13, 17 July 2012 (UTC)

There is to my knowledge no copyright on administrative documents. You can discuss it here orTalk:Tibetan_sovereignty_debate#Tibetan_passport. In any case it is not a good idea to hastily remove material while a procedure is ongoing, as you have done more than once. --Pseudois (talk) 16:15, 17 July 2012 (UTC)
Sounds good on all counts. -- Eraserhead1 <talk> 17:36, 17 July 2012 (UTC)

August 2012[edit]

Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you recently tried to give a page a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into another page with a different name. This is known as a "cut and paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is needed for attribution and various other purposes. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.

In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page. This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other pages that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Cut and paste move repair holding pen. Thank you. -- (talk) 10:30, 27 August 2012 (UTC)

It wasn't a "cut and paste move". To the opposite, I restored the redirect as per WP:RM, please check Talk:Terrorism_in_Peru#Requested_move. Thank you,--Pseudois (talk) 20:11, 29 August 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for July 25[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Mount Everest, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Friendship Highway (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.
