Are you sure the Greek Civil War started in 1946 and ended in 1949? B-Machine (talk) 14:20, 23 October 2009 (UTC)

The beginning of the civil-war is marked by the attack on Litochoro and the formation of the DSE, i 1946. While most Greeks have a vague idea of the post-war events that lead to the civil-war("Εμφύλιος"), apart from the far-right supporters, nobody else considers pre-1946 violent events as a civil-war. Particularly the pre-1944 clashes between the greek resisting groups, which are not uncommon among resisting movements in general, were in no way constituting a civil-war.
(Note that we should completely excluded the major operations of ELAS against the security-battalions manned and commanded by Greek collaborationists, since those should be accounted to the German forces.) Sperxios (talk) 22:15, 23 October 2009 (UTC)
Okay. I just wanted confirmation. From your username, I assume you are Greek. B-Machine (talk) 15:43, 24 October 2009 (UTC)

Greek Civil Warr[edit]

Γειά σου! Κάνεις λάθος, δεν αφαίρεσα τίποτα, το αντίθετο, το επανέφερα όταν ένας ανώνυμος χρήστης IP το διέγραψε και μετέτρεψε την πρόταση σε "κομμουνιστοποίηση της μεταπολεμικής Ελλάδας". Σίγουρα η εν λόγω πρόταση χρειάζεται παραπομπές (όχι μόνο σχετικά με το επίσημο πρόγραμμα τις ΠΕΕΑ, αλλά και αξιολόγησή του και των προθέσεών της από έγκριτους ιστορικούς), και γενικά το άρθρο έχει ένα κάρο προβλήματα. Αν μπορείς να το βελτιώσεις, go ahead! Πάντως οι τελευταίες μου αλλαγές εκεί είχαν αποκλειστικά σκοπό να επαναφέρω κάποια στοιχεία, όπως σχετικά με τα Τάγματα Ασφαλείας, που ο εν λόγω ανώνυμος χρήστης διέγραψε ή ξανάγραψε ώστε να ενοχοποιούν αποκλειστικά το ΕΑΜ. Φιλικά, Constantine 01:50, 28 July 2010 (UTC)
Σωστά, το είδα. Τώρα απορώ και εγώ πως μπερδεύτηκα με το history. Συγνώμη.
(αλήθεια, που σου έγραψα την ερώτηση, δεν τη βρίσκω στην talk σελίδα σου?)

Fair use rationale for File:Dekemvriana 1944 SYNTAGMA.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Dekemvriana 1944 SYNTAGMA.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the file description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 20:42, 21 June 2011 (UTC)

Requested for undeletion of the page due to invalid *speedy* deletion process. Also provided missing fair-use rational. Please Sfan00, is it possible to specify what other images i had uploaded were also deleted, since i cannot find them from the logs?
Can you not use Special:Logs and look for Uploads that are now redlinks? I'll take a look Sfan00 IMG (talk) 12:05, 9 July 2011 (UTC)
According to Special:Logs the above mentioned image is the only currnetly deleted upload... To go further you would need to find an admin to look at deleted pages, as I can't. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 12:08, 9 July 2011 (UTC)
I have restored the image and reset the timer. Please add your fair use rationale to the image description page and remove the template once you have done so. Please note that your rationale should include not just what the image depicts, but an explanation of how "its presence would significantly increase readers' understanding of the topic, and its omission would be detrimental to that understanding" (see WP:NFCC#8). If the image does not meet this criterion, or if the rationale does not adequately explain why it is necessary to include this image to understand the topic, then the image is going to be deleted again eventually - just having the template isn't a magic formula that allows any image to be used. --B (talk) 18:24, 9 July 2011 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Dekemvriana 1944 SYNTAGMA.jpg[edit]


Thanks for uploading File:Dekemvriana 1944 SYNTAGMA.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Possibly unfree File:ScobiUltimatum.png[edit]

Free-orbit experiment with laser interferometry X-rays[edit]

Hi Sperxios, the first reference on the above article, which is mighty cool, has a damaged first references. Seems the link to "Gravitational Collapse of the Wavefunction: AN Experimentally Testable Proposal" now points to a dead 404 page. If you read science fiction, the author and former mathematician and software engineer Greg Egan has a novel Quarantine which has an interesting outcome as the result of the wave-function collapse. scope_creep talk 20:28 7 August 2014 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

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.
