One thing[edit]

Can you please, please, please, get rid of that habit of tinkering with your own postings on talkpages dozens of times every time you post something? It's bad manners. Such edits are polluting the edit history, they make it difficult to follow the progression of a discussion or to link to it, and they can be extremely annoying if somebody is trying to respond to you quickly but keeps getting into edit-conflicts with your follow-up edits (happened to me half a dozen times the other day). Just try some self-discipline: think before you press save, not after.

Also, in your own interest, you should seriously consider cutting down on the sheer volume of what you post in the future. Volume is not making your arguments more persuasive. On that Macedonia page, it's gone way beyond the "tl;dr" stage now. If that RfC ever had the chance of arriving at some conclusion, that chance is now gone for good. No outside observer is going to cut through all that verbiage in order to add some much-needed, fresh outside opinion there any longer. Fut.Perf. 20:48, 11 January 2017 (UTC)

As if you really cared about a uninvolved party's opinion on this. From the moment you have opposed the RfC, what can I say? I expected more from you but you have disappointed me, Future Perfect. I am sad. But I guess, this is Wikipedic life, right?
EDIT: And sorry for my writing focus disorter. I am trying to limit it but a health issue is not as easily controllable as you may believe.
EDIT: I saw the history log. I hoped that the edits could go unnoticed since it is only a Talk page. -- SILENTRESIDENT 21:14, 11 January 2017 (UTC)

Personal Email[edit]

Hi SResident! Do you know if there is a way to communicate with other wikipedians through email? I hope you do! Thanks! NickTheRipper (talk) 21:52, 11 January 2017 (UTC)

On the left side of your screen, where there are various links such as "Main Page", "Random Article", "Help", etc. Perhaps the "Email this User" under the Tools section is what you seek. Hope that helps. -- SILENTRESIDENT 22:02, 11 January 2017 (UTC)

Yes! That was what I wanted. Thanks so much! NickTheRipper (talk) 14:31, 13 January 2017 (UTC)

Let's reduce the environmental impact of the Wikimedia movement![edit]

Hi SilentResident, please allow me to get in touch because you have stated sympathy with environmental causes on your user page. I would like to invite you to check out the Environmental impact project page on Meta, where I am trying to create some momentum to reduce the environmental impact of the Wikimedia movement. My first goal is to have all the Wikimedia servers run on renewable energy. Maybe you could show your support for this project as well by adding your signature here? Thank you, --Gnom (talk) 22:13, 15 January 2017 (UTC)

Done. I am looking into this being accomplished. :) -- SILENTRESIDENT 22:22, 15 January 2017 (UTC)
Great, thank you very much! --Gnom (talk) 22:23, 15 January 2017 (UTC)

Talk parent page and GA child page[edit]

@Iazyges and PericlesofAthens:

I am following closely the very inspiring developments for the promotion of Macedonia (ancient kingdom) to GA status at for the first time after that many years. May I ask - there appear to be 2 identical copies of the discussion, one at the parent page: [1] and the other at its child page: [2] Which one is where we cab make comments? -- SILENTRESIDENT 16:52, 13 February 2017 (UTC)

I'd recommend on the GA page, i also would like to apologize for my inactivity, i have been away until recently, I should be able to put full effort into it in a few hours. Iazyges Consermonor Opus meum 17:08, 13 February 2017 (UTC)
Don't press yourself, it is allright. :) And thank you very much for the response. -- SILENTRESIDENT 17:15, 13 February 2017 (UTC)
Yep, probably better to edit the GA page directly. Also, thanks for the update, @Iazyges:! I look forward to continuing our review. Pericles of AthensTalk 00:10, 14 February 2017 (UTC)

Europe religion map[edit]

Hey there dude, can you please update this map according to the new datas from the 2011 Estonian census.

BTW, Romania also needs update according to some old, but viable datas. Actually nothing changed since then. – TL93, 20:06, February 20, 2017 (CET)

I will see what I can do. -- SILENTRESIDENT 19:08, 26 February 2017 (UTC)
Tolea93, two countries in the map have now been updated. You may have to do a hard refresh or clear your web browser's cache to see the changes on the image file. Enjoy.
About Romania, the requested changes didn't pass, as the data you provided me are too old. Can you find and provide me more recent sources about that country? -- SILENTRESIDENT 12:40, 27 February 2017 (UTC)
