Rayesworied is evading his block, again with I've blocked both for three more days; if you see anything that looks like this guy again, feel free to report it right away. Some giveaways are blanking like these [1][2] on Developed market, lots of edits to Developed country and its talk page, bit interest in articles relating to East Asian economy and politics (particularly the 4 Asian Tigers), and unexplained reverting at South Korea (although I am pretty sure User:Clockoon is not him... other people who make these edits, though, might be), and leaving messages at my, your, or User:HOOTmag's talkpage. rʨanaɢ talk/contribs 13:43, 1 September 2009 (UTC)

Reports of organ harvesting from Falun Gong practitioners in China[edit]

Human lead image[edit]

Salutations! Since you were one of the more moderate voices discussing this issue in the recently elapsed Talk:Human RfC, I was wondering if you might be willing to re-make the originally proposed lead-image change on Human. I'd do it myself, but I expect the change to lead to a great deal of discussion, and I worry that if the same single editor makes the edit both times it will sour the discussion somewhat. I don't even want to give the appearance of unilateral or 'us-vs.-them' activity, and it sounds like you agreed with me that the current image is highly problematic. The replacement may not be completely perfect, but I think it does the job. What say ye? :) -Silence (talk) 19:02, 4 September 2009 (UTC)

To all the big editors of July 2009 Ürümqi riots: invitation for comment[edit]

I'm thinking the article is probably ready now to get a nice copyedit and go in for GAN, per the plan I laid out in [[Talk:July 2009 Ürümqi riots/Archive3#Time to remove {current}?]], as the article has become stable. I've started going through a copyediting and cleanup sweep, focusing mainly on rewording things now that we have a couple months' perspective (for example, listing only the final "official" casualty count, rather than all the temporary numbers that were being published right and left while the news was still unfolding), and am leaving my comments/concerns at Talk:July 2009 Ürümqi riots#Editing notes. If you have any time, I would welcome your input there (particularly on the section about videos within the External links, which has left me scratching my head). rʨanaɢ talk/contribs 04:54, 5 September 2009 (UTC)

New sig?[edit]

Nice! rʨanaɢ talk/contribs 02:41, 7 September 2009 (UTC)


Thanks for your suggestion....I went to that page but I am not very technical and it was double dutch to me....Pity its not simpler. Regards. Redking7 (talk) 05:43, 7 September 2009 (UTC)

Invitation to join Wikiproject Micronations[edit]

I note your interest in the subject of micronations.

Wikipedia always welcomes a diversity of opinion, so you might wish to consider registering as a member of the WikiProject Micronations:

I look forward to working with you over coming months to improve and significantly extend Wikipedia's micronation content. --Gene_poole (talk) 01:56, 12 September 2009 (UTC)


Hi there. I'm shortly going to propose that this site be added as an WP:EL to both List of micronations and Micronations.

As the site includes the most extensive, up-to-date listing of micronations currently available from any source, I believe that it is directly relevant to the subject of those articles, and that its inclusion within them would significantly complement the existing content, and enhance their usefulness and the level of informativeness they communicate to the general reader.

However, before I iniate that discussion I firstly wanted to disclose that I'm the owner and primary author of Secondly, in order to avoid any suggestion of WP:COI I intend to refrain from adding the link myself, should the eventual consensus support my proposal. --Gene_poole (talk) 02:28, 14 September 2009 (UTC)

Re: Ons vir jou Suid-Afrika/At Thy will South Africa[edit]

Re your message: I see that it got listed in the spam blacklist and the history on this particular person is far more extensive than just spamming the forum link. -- Gogo Dodo (talk) 05:18, 22 September 2009 (UTC)

Re your message: That didn't take very long. It might be time to take stronger actions. -- Gogo Dodo (talk) 04:40, 25 September 2009 (UTC)

MediaWiki talk:Spam-blacklist[edit]

Please do not blank discussions by other users, as that could be viewed as vandalism. --- Barek (talkcontribs) - 04:26, 25 September 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for resubmitting ... I was guessing you were meaning to add a report, but the initial edit was a bit confusing on the actual intent. --- Barek (talkcontribs) - 04:33, 25 September 2009 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

For repairing vandalism to my talk page. --John (talk) 05:00, 25 September 2009 (UTC)

no problem Choyoołʼįįhí:Seb az86556 05:07, 25 September 2009 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Hi Seb, thank you for the reword. Best Regards, --HappyInGeneral (talk) 17:14, 25 September 2009 (UTC)

3RR warning[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Wikipedia:Local Embassy. Note that the three-revert rule prohibits making more than three reversions on a single page within a 24 hour period. Additionally, users who perform several reversions in content disputes may be blocked for edit warring even if they do not technically violate the three-revert rule. When in dispute with another editor you should first try to discuss controversial changes to work towards wording and content that gains a consensus among editors. Should that prove unsuccessful, you are encouraged to seek dispute resolution, and in some cases it may be appropriate to request page protection. Please stop the disruption, otherwise you may be blocked from editing. Who then was a gentleman? (talk) 19:32, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

Well-taken. Warning is justified. Choyoołʼįįhí:Seb az86556 19:36, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

West Germany[edit]

As it seem you have never edited West Germany before, would you please explain why you added this? As I was born and still live in said country, I am curios why you claim it is a "former country". -- Matthead  Discuß   20:41, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

It was a proper infobox you removed. User Seb az86556 was right restoring the information, you by the way, reverted again.--Jacurek (talk) 20:43, 27 September 2009 (UTC)
Jacurek, stop your wikistalking. You are not supposed to answer questions posed to others. -- Matthead  Discuß   20:45, 27 September 2009 (UTC)
I'm commenting, not answering any questions. Please avoid false statements such as this one. Thanks--Jacurek (talk) 20:48, 27 September 2009 (UTC)
a)Please take your fight off my talkpage.
b)Your mentioning you stil live in that country strengthens my notion of a POV. Choyoołʼįįhí:Seb az86556 22:36, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

Neapolitan spelling.[edit]

Hello, so, the wikicode doesn't parse Neapolitan spelling correctly so the language should change the way it's written? I don't mean to be flip, and I know it can make interwikis difficult, but it is an old problem that we have had to deal with repeatedly. That said, that _is_ the way it is written, and it's written that way for "legitimate" grammatical reasons. It's (somewhat) like someone asking the en.wikipedia to change the spelling of "knife" or "enough" or "wrestle" because they don't jibe with the linguistic parameters of their particular language. E. abu Filumena (talk) 18:46, 28 September 2009 (UTC)

In fact, I had just reread your message and saw that it did seem to be that you were just saying that we might want to find a way around it. I got your message as I was typing this one. No offense taken and thank you for your intent.E. abu Filumena (talk) 19:08, 28 September 2009 (UTC)

My username[edit]

what do you think it means? read between the lines.--Iwillremembermypassthistime (talk) 20:30, 29 September 2009 (UTC)

It's not a matter of what your username means. It's a matter of instituting vast changes w/o consulting others. That's what got ANI's attention. Choyoołʼįįhí:Seb az86556 23:44, 29 September 2009 (UTC)

Flags and other icons[edit]

Higher up the page than the link given, but the key relevant point: "Do not use icons in general article prose: Icons should not be used in the article body, as in, "...and after her third novel was published, Jackson moved to Bristol,  England, in April 2004, then...". This breaks up the continuity of the text, distracting the reader (example)."

They are generally best saved for lists, infoboxes, tables and navboxes. Best, Knepflerle (talk) 11:02, 30 September 2009 (UTC)
