As this is my first attempt to write an article in wikipedia, I would appreciate receiving early feedback from wikipedia experienced editors. This page is expected to become part of the eGovernment page, in the "e-Governance per country" section.

I completed the ToC and one country to act as a specimen (Austria).

{{helpme}} Rentzepopoulos (talk) 22:47, 15 September 2009 (UTC)

Hi there. For now...I have moved this 'helpme' request to your own talk page. I think that it deserves a full answer, so please hold on a bit - or, even better, talk to us live, with this.
If I don't see you online soonish, then I'll certainly add more thoughts below.
Cheers,  Chzz  ►  23:41, 15 September 2009 (UTC)
Thank you Chzz! As I will be away from my PC for the next 24 (or so) hours, please feel free to comment and I will respond when I am back.
Rentzepopoulos (talk) 00:02, 16 September 2009 (UTC)
Apologies for the delay; I will look at the article very soon (next hour), and reply.  Chzz  ►  21:51, 9 October 2009 (UTC)

Re. "Request for comments" - just a quick note for now to say, yes, looks better, and I will look properly ASAP.  Chzz  ►  16:31, 19 October 2009 (UTC)

Welcome and introduction[edit]

Hi, Rentzepopoulos. This is NOT some automated's from a real person. You can talk to me right now. Welcome to Wikipedia! I noticed you've just joined, and wanted to give you a few tips to get you started. If you have any questions, please talk to us. The tips below should help you to get started. Best of luck!  Chzz  ►  23:41, 15 September 2009 (UTC)

  • You don't need to read anything - anybody can edit; just go to an article and edit it. Be Bold, but please don't put silly stuff in - it will be removed very quickly, and will annoy people.
  • Ask for help. Talk to us live, or edit this page, put {{helpme}} and describe what help you need. Someone will reply very quickly - usually within a few minutes.
  • Edit existing articles, before you make your own. Look at some subjects that you know about, and see if you can make them a bit better. For example, Wikipedia:Cleanup#2009.
  • When you're ready, read about Your first article. It should be about something well-known, and it will need references.

Good luck with editing; please drop me a line some time on my own talk page.

There's lots of information below. Once again, welcome to the fantastic world of Wikipedia!

eGovernment in Europe[edit]

Ref. User:Rentzepopoulos/eGovernment in Europe

The work on eGovernment in Europe has been moved in its own [ subpage]
You don't need to use Wikilinks to link to Wiki pages, so I changed it to this;
The work on eGovernment in Europe has been moved in its own [[User:Rentzepopoulos/eGovernment_in_Europe |subpage]].
For more on that, see WP:LINKING.
  • The first part of an article is called the lede. This does not need a heading, because the page name will be shown at the top. It does need to give a context for the article, and the name of the article in '''bold'''. So, the article should start off, right at the beginning (before any == section) with something like,
'''eGovernment in Europe''' is controlled via [[e-Government]] initiatives both at the [[European Union]] level and individually...
...which will look like this;

eGovernment in Europe is controlled via e-Government initiatives both at the European Union level and individually...

  • Links to external websites should not appear in the body text, as you have with i2010. External links should only be used as either references, or in a special section called 'external links' (subject to the WP:EL policy). Therefore, you should either have it as...
...the [[European Commission|European Commission's]] [ i2010] strategic framework.<ref[ i2010]</ref>
...which will add it in the references, or add it to external links.
  • For non-english references, please specify the language like this (the last parameter);
<ref>{{cite web
|title=Bundesgesetz über Regelungen zur Erleichterung des elektronischen Verkehrs mit öffentlichen Stellen (E-Government-Gesetz - E-GovG)
|work=Rechtsinformationssystem des Bundes (RIS)
|language=[[German language|German]]
  • As a general comment - this article could, potentially, end up being very long - so you might be interested in reading up on Wikipedia:Summary style.

I hope that this helps, and give some ideas. Please have a try at some of that stuff, and give me a shout on user talk:chzz/my talk page with any questions, etc. To request a review of the article from others, it would be a good idea to ask in WP:FEED, or for a more formal peer review (once it is 'live').

Best,  Chzz  ►  22:52, 9 October 2009 (UTC)

Thanks a lot Chzz! I will take into account your comments and continue writing for the rest of the countries. When ready, I will ask for a review, as you suggested, when it will go live.

Estonia eGov page[edit]

Hello. I replied to your thread again. After looking at the edit history for the Egov in Estonia page, it actually hasn't had any real edits in over a year and a half. I would just go ahead and redirect if that is what you feel is correct. I'd maybe look at the sources on that page and see if any of them would be good for the main egov in europe article. Also thats some terrific work you've done on that article! Beach drifter (talk) 14:57, 17 February 2010 (UTC)

Re. Major failures[edit]

Re. Talk:EGovernment in Europe#Major failures section in Ireland - I have removed the material, following your 'helpme' request; please see my response there.

In future, please use 'helpme' here, on your own talk page, rather than on article discussion pages; the idea of 'helpme' is to get specific, 1:1 help from a helper. The discussion page is for discussing edits to the article, with all interested parties.

When you leave messages, please remember to "sign" your name, by putting ~~~~ (four tilde signs) at the end. This will add your name, and the date and time. You can also do this by clicking the 'sign' button, pictured here.

Cheers,  Chzz  ►  13:50, 9 March 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the info – I will keep this in mind. As for the signature, I put it a couple of minutes later, which I understand was late. :)

By the way, why did you remove the Actors paragraph as well? This was not challenged, at least to my understanding... Rentzepopoulos (talk) 13:59, 9 March 2010 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Interoperability Solutions for European Public Administrations (ISA)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Interoperability Solutions for European Public Administrations (ISA) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Ephemeral programme, only barely started. No independent sources. Does not meet WP:GNG.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

More information needed about File:EPracticeRegistrationURL.png[edit]

Hello, Rentzepopoulos!

It was really helpful of you to you to upload File:EPracticeRegistrationURL.png. However, we need to properly format the image license information in order to keep and use new images.

If you can edit the description and add one of these templates, that would be great. If you're not sure how or would like some help, please ask us at the media copyright questions page and we'll be happy to assist you.

Thanks again! --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 17:05, 24 January 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for August 19[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Nürburgring, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Top Gear (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.

Paul Di Resta[edit]

I disagree, its a completely different article dated this year rather than the current citation and in it he says that he is surprised that he does not know who his Force India teammate will be, hence he is part of Force India,

Also have a check of BBC's F1 page, he is there, his profile is still on Force India's website, surely this is enough evidence to support he is on the team?? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Adzer (talkcontribs) 09:26, 18 January 2013 (UTC)

Dear Adzer, I am not questioning the date of the article, but the content. I know that Di Resta will continue with Force India; however, wikipedia content should be confirmed and it seems that Force India has not yet confirmed its drivers. Rentzepopoulos (talk) 09:44, 18 January 2013 (UTC)

F1 car launches[edit]

Hi Rentzepopoulos,

I've undone some of your edits to the Lotus E21 page which gave details of the launch of the car. The reason for this is that I felt that it was, on a certain level, advertising, telling readers when and where they could see the launch of the car. I know that wasn't your intention, but the wording of it gave the time and date of the launch a little bit too much prominence.

Furthermore, over the past few years, there has been a gradual move away from including details of car launches in articles. I don't know how long you have been working on Wikipedia, but you may have noticed in previous years that editors used to include tables showing car launches in season articles. But it is generally felt that these are superfluous details, and don't really have any bearing on the season as a whole. The same holds for articles on individual cars; it is more important to include details of development and performance since, and launch dates are generally only mentioned in passing. They may have some prominence when the article is first created, but they are also among the first details removed once the car is launched and more details become public. Prisonermonkeys (talk) 03:47, 29 January 2013 (UTC)

No problem; after witnessing the Lotus launch, I couldn't agree more ;) Rentzepopoulos (talk) 07:43, 29 January 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for February 22[edit]

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

Champinos League[edit]

Hi, why did you remove the colors here? Both team will finish in at least third place. QED237 (talk) 21:36, 23 October 2014 (UTC)

We are midway the group stage. In theory, there is at least one combination of results that leads to any possible outcome. Rentzepopoulos (talk) 22:17, 23 October 2014 (UTC)
No not at all since points are lost in draws (only two insteadv of three handed out) look at group G were Dortmund has 9p, Arsenal 6pts, Anderlecht and Galatasaray 1p. IF both Gala and And win both their matches against Dortmund and Arsenal they have 7p when the met. If one of them win they get 10p and 7p (one team behind Dortmund) and if a draw both have 8p (both behind Dortmund). There is no possible way both can pass Dortmund since they played a draw first match. QED237 (talk) 22:44, 23 October 2014 (UTC)
You are right! Sorry for the removal; it was based on the assumption that as all teams have played with all three different opponents and now they have to play the exact same opponents once more, a simple score reversal would yield the same point tally to all -- this is clearly not the case. Rentzepopoulos (talk) 23:23, 23 October 2014 (UTC)
No problem, as a mathmatician I know it is easy mistake to make. Have a nice day. QED237 (talk) 23:29, 23 October 2014 (UTC)
