Categories On Your Page[edit]

im working on cleaning up all the categories of architecture and i found your user page listed everywhere. in fact, you're the only user listed in those places. those categories are setup to sort and easily find related articles, but you're listed mixed in with the bunch, under "U" for "User". if you want to have a link to those different forms of architecture that you've posted as categories on your page, you can instead put them as links within the body of your page. i'm editing/cleaning up categories for articles, but i'm not touching users' pages. instead i'm writing them and asking them to make the changes for me, out of courtesy. do you suppose you can comply? i dont know if there's any policy against what you're doing (maybe there is?), but it just looks silly to me. let me know what you think. ill come back to see your reply, and let you know what i found out about those policies. Ivansevil 03:29, 28 September 2007 (UTC)

since u speak spanish and english, and are into architecture. i was wondering if you could help me out with a few things dealing with both. i have asked several members of WikiProject:Architecture (both in english and spanish) for help, and no one has replied. i have a long list of questions, and if u have time, could u help me translate some things from spanish into english? i can post them here if u say its ok.

Motto of the day[edit]

Hello, I notice you're using one of the {{motd}} templates, run by Wikipedia:Motto of the day. You may have noticed that some of the mottos recently have been followed by a date from 2006, or on occasion simply "Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia". The reason for this is that Motto of the day is in some very serious need of help. Participation in the project, which has never been especially high, has dropped considerably over this past summer, to the point we have had several days where no motto was scheduled to appear at all. Over the past several weeks, I've been the only editor scheduling mottos at all, but there aren't enough comments on some of these mottos to justify their use. If we do not get some help - and soon - your daily mottos will stop. In order for us to continue updating these templates for you, we need your help.

When you get a chance between your normal editing, could you stop by our nominations page and leave a few comments on some of the mottos there, especially those that do not have any comments yet? This works very simply; you read a motto, decide whether or not you like it, and post your opinion just below the motto. That's it - no experience required, just an idea of what you personally like and what you feel reflects Wikipedia and its community. If you do have past experience with the project, then please close some of the older nominations once they've got a decent consensus going. There are directions on the nominations page on how to do this.

If you have any questions, please let me know, or post on the project's talk page. I'm looking forward to reading your comments on the suggested mottos, and any additional suggestions you'd like to make. Until then, happy editing! Hersfold (t/a/c) 02:49, 4 September 2008 (UTC)

Armed Forces of El Salvador[edit]

Hello Sobreira,

You made a mistake, I didn't write it. The only thing I changed in this article is this though the sentence about the Israelians was wrote by an anonymous contributor (his/her edit), I encourage you to read the help about the diff feature. 16@r (talk) 18:44, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

Template:Country data African Union[edit]

Hi,
I had to delete {{Country data African Union}} again since, just as it said in the deletion log that must have shown when you created the image, it's impossible to use the two non-free images File:Flag of the African Union 2010.svg and File:Flag of the African Union.svg in a template like this, per policy.
Amalthea 16:46, 21 February 2010 (UTC)

Please familiarize yourself with the policy on non-free images: A flag template showing a non-free flag may not be built because indiscriminate use of that flag image violates this policy. You can't bypass that by using the image directly, like you did on Legal status of Western Sahara, I'm afraid. Amalthea 19:29, 21 February 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for your tactful warning about the non-free image. I understand now I see the "Non-free media use rationale" tagging in the image. Thanks for your patience and good job. Nuncamais.png Sobreira (parlez) 08:51, 23 February 2010 (UTC)
Of course. And this is a rather unfortunate situation, but the African Union isn't alone there: the ASEAN flags are likewise copyrighted, and can only be used under a claim of fair use, with the restrictions that come with it.
Cheers, Amalthea 09:24, 23 February 2010 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Irina Viner[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Irina Viner has been proposed for deletion because under Wikipedia policy, all biographies of living persons created after March 18, 2010, must have at least one source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't take offense. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Wikipedia:Referencing for beginners or ask at Wikipedia:Help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within ten days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one.

Districts of Libya[edit]

First of all, thanks for all the time you have put into expanding this article. I do have a complaint, however. Some of the material seems a little superfluous or even redundant. I know it is still a work in progress, but can you please make sure that everything you add truly contributes to the quality of the article? Again, I'm grateful for what you have done. I'll give you a chance to finish before I make any more changes myself. --Lasunncty (talk) 01:37, 21 October 2010 (UTC)

Re: Libyan Placenames[edit]

I apologize for not getting back to you in time. Unexpected events extended my absence from Wikipedia.

I'll try to answer your inquiries to the best of my knowledge, though as I previously told you, Libyan is not my native dialect; therefore, I will only provide you my opinion on the ones I might know, and please don't regard my answers error-free.

The ones in bold are which I reckon correct.

6 مرزق murSuq marSuq / murSaq vowel of first and second syllables Murzuq
7 يفرن yafran yifrin vowel of first and second syllables Yafran
8 غريان Rarii'aan Rarii'aan / Rariyaan / Raryaan vowels of second and third syllables Gharyan
9 سوفاجين‎ sawfaajjiin sawfajjiin length of vowel for consonant "f" Sawfajjin

I laud the work you're doing. It's great to see so energetic a person on Wikipedia. I hope my response will be helpful, and again, I'm sorry for the very late answer. Good luck in your pursuits! Ahmediq152 (talk) 00:27, 4 November 2010 (UTC)

Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference[edit]

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and you will still be able to manually mark your edits as being minor in the usual way.

For established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. With the script in place, you can continue with this functionality indefinitely (its use is governed by WP:MINOR). If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 18:43, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

MOTDs (This space for rent)[edit]

You may have noticed over the past few days that the MOTD that you link to on your user page has simply displayed a red link. This is due to the fact that not enough people are reviewing pending MOTDs here. Please help us keep the MOTD template alive and simply go and review a few of the MOTDs in the list. That way we can have a real MOTD in the future rather than re-using (This space for rent). Any help would be appreciated! –pjoef (talkcontribs) 13:25, 7 March 2012 (UTC)

Titular diocese of Dora[edit]

  • Mea culpa.It was my mistake and I corrected it. I, in general do not create articles about titular sees, because they are not important,but this one particularity is different.This titular see was reserved for the territorial prelates of Ciudad Real.So their full title would be for example: Juan Hervás y Benet, Titular bishop of Dora and Prelate of Ciudad Real, Grand Master and Prior of the Orders of Santiago, Alcántara, Calatrava and Montesa.

You have to read the article about the Titular see to understand that connection.

To heal divisions, to relieve the oppressed,
In virtue rich; in blessing others, blessed.


Nominate one today!

Motto of the Day (WP:MOTD) is in a state of emergency and really needs your help! There are not enough editors who are reviewing or nominating mottos at Wikipedia:Motto of the day/Nominations/In review, and this probably means that you will notice a red link or “This space for rent” as our mottos for the next weeks and months.

Please take a moment to review the nominations and nominate your own new mottos at Wikipedia:Motto of the day/Nominations/In review and Wikipedia:Motto of the day/Nominations/'Specials. Any help would be appreciated! MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 09:13, 29 April 2014 (UTC)

This message has been sent by pjoef on behalf of Motto of the Day to all editors of the English Wikipedia who are showing MOTD's templates on their pages, and to all the participants to MOTD: (page, template, and category).

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

plucking[edit]

Hi Sobreiera: Can you please provide a reference for this assertion? Chick down feathers are tiny. Beyond tiny. They are not plucked for down. Adult ducks and geese are certainly still (unfortunately) live plucked in some countries, but not chicks. MeegsC (talk) 17:59, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

"raquetas" or "raquetas rotonde"[edit]

Thank you so much for this edit. The help in Spanish language was great. But you did not give a source of the information. A google search of "raquetas rotonde" returns more results. Is it possible to get a reference for it? Btw. as in Spain there ale 3-leg intersections of this type. Is there a reference, this shape results the name "raquetas"? --Hans Haase (talk) 08:22, 17 October 2014 (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. For the Election committee, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 13:54, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia books[edit]

Hi Sobreira. I see you've created several Wikipedia books that have been placed in Category:Wikipedia books on language. Afaics these are well-constructed books so they could be "promoted" into community books - i.e. moved into the Book namespace. This could mean that other editors might be more likely to make improvements to them. If you don't wish your books to be moved in this way then we could copy your books to pages in Book namespace. For info having user pages in book-by-topic categories (which are under Category:Articles) is an anomaly in categorization that I'm looking into. DexDor (talk) 07:23, 3 December 2015 (UTC)

Speedy deleted[edit]

Speedy deletion of "Idgaf"[edit]

Idgaf, a page you created, has been tagged for deletion, as it meets one or more of the criteria for speedy deletion; specifically, it has no content, other than external links, categories, "see also" sections, rephrasing of the title, and/or chat-like comments.

You are welcome to contribute content that complies with our content policies and any applicable inclusion guidelines. However, please do not simply re-create the page with the same content. You may also wish to read our introduction to editing and guide to writing your first article.

Thank you. DVdm (talk) 10:47, 13 December 2015 (UTC)

Martello towers[edit]

Hi Sobreira, frequently foreign names in British accounts, especially accounts from the mid-19th century back, are at best an approximation to the correct, local name. I don't know if that is the case with Ciutadella, but I generally try to use the name as I found it in the documentary sources, and link to the correct name. That way, someone doing some googling can find the sources. Regards, Acad Ronin (talk) 00:03, 12 April 2018 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Команда 2018 and reversion of related edits on other pages[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Команда 2018 has been proposed for deletion because it lacks notability as per WP:NSONG. The only article that mentions the song's artists shows that Команда 2018 was only slightly associated with the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup and not at all associated with the 2018 FIFA World Cup. For the same reason, related edits that you performed on other pages have been reverted.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages 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, on the article's talk page or below.

Please consider improving the page 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. -- SLV100 (talk) 20:59, 26 April 2018 (UTC)

Expletive (disambiguation)[edit]

Hello, Sobreira. Your recent additions to Expletive (disambiguation) were contrary to the Manual of Style specifications for disambiguation pages. For example, DAB pages should have only one blue link per bullet, and there should be no final punctuation of bulleted lines. I have therefore rolled the page back to an earlier version.

Copying within Wikipedia requires attribution[edit]

Information icon Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you copied or moved text from Jamala into Eurovision Song Contest 2016. While you are welcome to re-use Wikipedia's content, here or elsewhere, Wikipedia's licensing does require that you provide attribution to the original contributor(s). When copying within Wikipedia, this is supplied at minimum in an edit summary at the page into which you've copied content, disclosing the copying and linking to the copied page, e.g., copied content from [[page name]]; see that page's history for attribution. It is good practice, especially if copying is extensive, to also place a properly formatted {{copied}} template on the talk pages of the source and destination. The attribution has been provided for this situation, but if you have copied material between pages before, even if it was a long time ago, please provide attribution for that duplication. You can read more about the procedure and the reasons at Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia. Thank you.
