Monica Seles[edit]

I have no knowledge or real comment or opinion on the edit itself. My point was to Tennisexpert who doesn't seem to understand that there is no way for random editors to know that there had been a discussion of any type about the topic. To go and immediately revert every editor without explanation is not the way to do things here. I've worked on an article where I would see 20 IPs a day, each was reverted, nonsense removed, and a comment on the talk page. I kept asking if they wanted to keep playing whack-a-mole or deal with the actual issue and I finally just put a hidden comment about that exact issue so that it was clear to new editors that it wasn't just forgotten which started moving the argument to the discussion page where it belongs. -- Ricky81682 (talk) 07:35, 10 May 2008 (UTC)

No problem. This is much easier than the fun we had last month together. -- Ricky81682 (talk) 07:39, 10 May 2008 (UTC)


Thanks for information. After seeing damage done by user:Velebit aka Standshown aka Stagalj aka... on Croatia related articles in fall of 2007 I have started to delete all his contributions. His way of working is to write POV stuff with knowledge that he will be discovered and again banned but his changes will stay in article. To block that sort of POV edits which are staying in articles I am deleting all his contributions --Rjecina (talk) 18:52, 11 May 2008 (UTC)

Rome: link to Achacachi[edit]

OK: the link you have deleted guides to a page which can be found only by searching the newspaper's archive.--Broletto (talk) 10:43, 13 May 2008 (UTC)

Well, actually I didn't delete it per an earlier comment above. But thanks for the feedback, I appreciate it. Squash Racket (talk) 14:40, 13 May 2008 (UTC)

I'll try to understand this new thing (new to me, I mean). Thanks.--Broletto (talk) 07:12, 21 May 2008 (UTC)

Thank you for explaining.--Broletto (talk) 10:48, 22 May 2008 (UTC)


I that the "Islands" section in this article should be included within "Geography" section because it is part of geography. What is your opinion? Otolemur crassicaudatus (talk) 07:50, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

Probably, but there are a number of major issues with the article. I think we should pick some featured articles of cities comparable in size to Budapest and use that as a basis for the layout/section titles etc. Than work on those sections one by one and adding only referenced information. Squash Racket (talk) 07:56, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

Convert template[edit]


I reverted your addition of the convert templates to Israel, for the following reasons:

  • I initially removed them due to a display issue ruining the article's formatting. It seems there's some limit to the number of templates/display elements an article can have, and this very complex article has reached it. I removed these templates and others to fix the problem (see Talk:Israel#Display issues - template).
  • The templates are superfluous. The serve no real purpose. The definition of mile isn't changing, the numbers are constant. Using the template just makes editing more complicated, and less approachable.

Note that while I don't like the templates, I didn't act on the issue until the display issues, and they are the main cause here.

okedem (talk) 09:43, 23 May 2008 (UTC)

OK, I understand and accept. But generally these templates make it sure that one of the data won't get changed and the conversion remains accurate, so in other articles I think these are advisable. I see that Israel may have reached that limit which is unlikely at other, less complicated articles. Israel receives enough attention anyway. Squash Racket (talk) 09:53, 23 May 2008 (UTC)
Yes, I understand that positive result, but I still think such a simple conversion can be left to editing, like other issues editors need to take care of themselves. Whatever... okedem (talk) 10:12, 23 May 2008 (UTC)


I am awarding you this WikiCookie for your constructive edits on Wikipedia--LAAFan 16:20, 23 May 2008 (UTC)


I left a response to your comment for you on the FAC page. Neat cookie award by the way. NancyHeise (talk) 14:45, 24 May 2008 (UTC)

SquashRacket, your additional edit to the communist paragraph added a notable fact but it did not change the factual accuracy of the paragraph. I welcomed your edit because it improved it. Your comment on the FAC page makes it sound as if there are omitted facts on the page but I consider that an exaggeration. Your added fact is not a worldwide phenomenon receiving constant and global press coverage but an isolated area that does not affect the majority of priests but a small minority. The fact was notable but it was not a terrible omission and one we certainly did not omit intentionally. It is a fairly recent event as the date of your references reveals. I will continue to hope that you will have a bit more faith in our work.
It is not a worldwide phenomenon, only the ex-Communist areas could be affected. But it is also clear that we are talking about more than a "small minority" here and that it is not a recent event, the few sources I added after a quick search are really just touching the surface of this issue. I didn't want to overemphasize this, because the efforts of John Paul II are also summarized in the same sentence. I didn't assume anything was omitted intentionally.

This article is definitely heading in the right direction, the FA status to me sounds like a final stage.

I hope that part of my comment answers your last sentence. Squash Racket (talk) 03:40, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

Naming issues[edit]

Re Britannica: tell me about it. These are the people's real names. I'm aware that with Hungarian, Serbian and Romanian in particular the diacritic actually changes the letter and so is important. Re moving the rest: I'm on wikibreak atm and have exams this coming week, but any user can correct those, including yourself if you so desire. Orderinchaos 15:38, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

Apologies, but I really haven't the time to fix it at present (between sleep, cooking, travelling and exams :). I have no problem with someone else fixing them in the appropriate manner and notifying me on my talk page. If done in that order, I can look through the user contribs, see that the edits were done correctly, fix if necessary, and will be happy to defend them along with my 82 reversions. Orderinchaos 16:08, 3 June 2008 (UTC)
Wrote a detailed response. Hope it's sufficient, as I won't be around for a while (exam week here). I find it somewhat amusing, I must admit, how crazy things are outside my home project sometimes - we Australians lead sheltered wikilives! Orderinchaos 13:29, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

date formatting[edit]

Thanks for cleaning up Salomon Group. However, I noticed you dewikified several dates. A wikified date is displayed according to the user's date format preference, the preferred way to write full dates per WP:MOSDATE. An incomplete date, on the other hand (such as "January 2002") should not be wikified, since that won't format it, but links it uselessly to January and/or 2002. Hopefully that clears things up for you. If not, by all means let me know. Thanks again. —EncMstr (talk) 05:09, 3 June 2008 (UTC)

OK, thank you for the clarification. I read somewhere a long time ago that all dates could be delinked as unnecessary, not just the month-year format (don't ask for a diff though, it was just a comment). Squash Racket (talk) 09:06, 3 June 2008 (UTC)
It's a long hot dispute, and even I and admins I work closely with are divided on the issue. If I'm editing an article substantially I tend to remove year links but keep date links (until such time as MediaWiki software can correctly display dates in line with user preferences without linking). Others favour linking years, but I've never understood what purpose such links serve. Orderinchaos 13:36, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

Re: Film[edit]

Hi. Well, though I will thank you for adding the urls, the problem that got to me was that, from all the urls in the article, you added the template to those two. I almost never use the templates in the articles I edit, unless they happen to have been used in other references. Why? I think they are cumbersome and restrictive. Correct me if I'm wrong, but there is no requirement to use citation templates, as long as the style you use features all relevant data (and for published sources, the data we have is relevant enough - a published text does not need a retrieval date if you cite it in its original context). There is however a requirement to adapt one's editing style to what is already in there, if what is already in there is correct - both for text consistency and editing courtesy.

As for the redlink: what I usually do when I source an article is to check out if we have links to the authors, publishers etc. (red or blue, doesn't matter). Where I know about the author and think that he or she is worth an article, I even add the redlinks without them being mentioned elsewhere on wiki. Why? Because I want to "streamline" the entry and cover all possible ground, instead of revisiting the article each time we have a new link from it (there is little that bugs me more than wasting my time doing that). In this case, I found that others had created a redlink for the author in some other article. On one hand, I do wonder myself if all NYT contributors are notable by default, but, in this case, others seem to have decided so - let them remove the links in case they change their minds.

I'm sorry if I seemed hostile. What I wanted to do in fact was to cover all these issues in my edit summary, which may render my messages more bitter than I intend them, and I was quite annoyed because at least some of the above seemed obvious to me. Dahn (talk) 18:09, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

Ágnes Szávay[edit]

Hey. I reverted only the ones I happened to notice. There are probably a few more, but I don't have time to dig much deeper now. You don't need admin tools to move over a redirect with no page history, though, so you can revert the move yourself if you wish. Thanks, Prolog (talk) 23:43, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

Feature Article Candidate Roman Catholic Church[edit]

This is a formal notification. You may have no further opposes to make

The nomination of the above article was archived by the Featured Articles Director, with the comment that the page had again grown too long. He has asked that all remaining objectors produce a list of their specific problems with the article in its current form. These will then be addressed by the article's editorial team before re-presentation for FA status.
Can you therefore please post a complete list of any specific remaining objections you may have on the article's talk page at: Talk:Roman_Catholic_Church. If possible can we have this list in by the end of June, so that editors can begin to address them all in detail in July. To prevent the nomination again becoming over-long, we would ask that you raise ALL of your remaining concerns at this stage, making your comments as specific and comprehensive as possible. It would help if all your comments were gathered under your name in a single heading on the page. Thank you. Xandar (talk) 01:55, 17 June 2008 (UTC)


My administrative status has nothing to do with what went on there. Just because I am an administrator does not mean anything for what I did there.—Ryūlóng (竜龙) 11:36, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

Just wanted to indicate you have nothing to do with past week's "heated editing", so no need to blind revert your changes by anyone. Does commenting out the whole infobox solve the technical problems? To me that too is OK. Squash Racket (talk) 13:44, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

Regards, Gruen (talk) 14:46, 15 August 2008 (UTC)


Hi Squash Racket - I've moved Taylormade back to where it was. It's easier for searching purposes if a dab page simply has the name of the item being searched for, rather than having "(disambiguation)" in brackets after it, especially when it's equally likely that readers will be searching for different items of that name. Given the high profile of one company with a variant of this name (Taylor-Made), and the fairly high profile of another company with this actual name as part of it (Taylormade Productions), it would be difficult to name either as the primary topic. In fact, googling Taylormade brings up Taylormade-adidas as the first hit and Taylormade Productions as the second, so they are likely to both be prominent search terms. A third company - which I've added to the dab page - came up next in the search - ahead of any other site connected to TM-adidas (such as golfing supply companies). It therefore makes more sense to keep the dab page at Taylormade, as is recommended at WP:Disambiguation ("The title of a disambiguation page is the ambiguous term itself, provided there is no primary topic for that term."). Grutness...wha? 23:48, 28 August 2008 (UTC)

If Taylormade Products would be equally important, then I think it would at least have its own article on Wikipedia by now, but as you wish. Squash Racket (talk) 05:29, 29 August 2008 (UTC)

Animated figure of the full golf swing[edit]

I saw that you moved the full golf swing to the hitting a golf ball section of the Golf article. I agree with you that it fits better there, but I feel somewhat responsible that the opening section is left with no image. I deleted an image of a golf ball next to a hole there for favor of the golf swing image, but the reason for deletion (that a visitor from planet X would gain no insight from the image of a golf ball) is still valid. So I'm asking for your help in figuring out an appropriate image for the opening section, The image of Tiger Woods was one possibility that I came up with.

Hi Squash, I certainly don't want to get involved in a content dispute in this article since I know zip about it(even though that usually doesn't slow me down) I was more trying to copy edit for neutrality and readability of the text. I do not believe I radically changed the emphasis of the material since that was not my intent. Anyways, again, I have no "side" on this since I know zippo about the facts or the "truth".

Hello, hello Squash Racket!

Saw your food related changes... Wonder if you can help me . I thougt about adding a new section to Hungarian cuisine, called: Special occasions. About food eaten at Christmas, Easter, well you know. Unfortunatally I am a bit uncertain about these Hungarian eating and drinking habits. Would you care to help out with any suggestions??


Warrington (talk) 13:29, 15 December 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for the suggestion. ~My mom has Hungarian ancestors but she told me that she is not sure about Hungarian Christmas dishes, their family allways had deviled eggs - töltöt tojas in mayonaise, potato salad and cakes like Bejgli and fruit wine. Does not sounds like regular Hungarian Christmas dishes, or what do you think?

My intentiom was to try to develope further the article Hungarian cuisine, I mean. Not adding cathegories to the different articles, if is that what youwere saying in your last xcomment.

Warrington (talk) 15:25, 15 December 2008 (UTC)

Oh, I see. I just added those because somebody put on a big tag [3] orphaned article. I hoped that some other countries will find the dish and add some more info.

Well, about my family, it is a bit difficult, we lived in so many countries (America as well) and we have American, Hungarian, Norvrgian, Italian and South-African relatives as well.

And what about you?

Warrington (talk) 16:37, 15 December 2008 (UTC)


I am having trouble with a suposedly American user who thinks that saffrron is a typical Hungarian spice. He is adding saffron all the time on Hungarian spices. I am absolutely sure that saffron is not a typical Hungarian spice. Need help!!!

see his new comment on Hungarian cuisine talk page and his last change in the article. He thinks I do not know about Hungarian food!!

Many of the authentic Hungarian recipes he includes use spices like saffron. One must remember that although Hungary today is only the size of Indiana, there are different regions of the nation. The food in the Dunantul is not the same as on the Alfold. The food in the far south and Serbia is not the same as the Felvidek (north) and Slovakia

Warrington (talk) 08:56, 25 January 2009 (UTC)


Please, could you explain this to this saffron enthusiast on the Hungarian cuisine talk page? He is edit warring on adding saffron to Hungarian spices, please, will you?

Warrington (talk) 09:09, 25 January 2009 (UTC)

Aha! that is a Transylvanian spice, see

Yes you are right

and I think saffron is an old spice which was used in Hungary in the Middle ages

Of course I understand Hungarian, and German and Norvegian and Swedish and Danish and some French and Dutch. But I am not an expert on every Hungarian topic, except food. And I make mistakes when writingh in Hungarian… And I really don't know what Hungarian Ghristmas food is, I still don't. Do Hungarians really eat fish soup at Christmas??

Hungarian settlement[edit]


Thanks for the thanks, nice to be appreciated!

I've ironed out most of the creases at User:SimonTrew/Hungarian settlement, there are still a couple of small bugs: it does do thenot do the population density for metro and urban population splits properly. However it is mostly working and you may wish to take a look/copy of it and test it out, to iron out any misconceptions. It has no documentation yet, though the fields you can use are documented if you bring up the article itself.

You'll find User:SimonTrew/Abony, User:SimonTrew/Sulysap (no accents!) and User:SimonTrew/Budapest (cut down) which use the new template for testing.

I guess there are three or four things to do:

  1. Write the documentation in English!
  2. Decide on an appropraite name and put it into Template: namespace.
  3. Perhaps make a Hungarian wrapper template, so that geo articles' infoboxes can just be cut-and-paste into English articles. I'd be glad of yours and others' opinions on whether this is good, bad or indifferent idea.

My Hungarian girlfriend User:Monkap has been around for the weekend but we chat in the week a lot so she can help with any Hungarian problems I have (which is a lot!) but we work together quite well. She is currently translating hu:John Harvey Kellogg which is her first article she has done much on her own, with some WP help from me. I am just the back-room boy for the WP stuff (templates etc) and for translating into English, she does the translations into Hungarian, with a bit of assistance for English wording etc. It works quite well, I think.

I am no expert at templates, in fact this is my first attempt, but I am a reasonably competent computer programmer so have no huge problems with them, just frustrations when they don't work as documented!

Feel free to copy this to somewhere more visible if you think fit.

Hi Squash Racket,

I didn't tb you about the Szondy stuff at the WikiProject Hungary talk, because I had assumed you were watching it. Sorry about that. I actually fixed the names after checking once again in the Hungarian (the supposed Hungarian form of the name was wrong too.) The thing is, if there is going to be an edit war, a) I am not taking part in it and b) this stuff seems to me just to add fuel to the fire, however well intentioned. Seems to me reasonable that for somewhere so close to the border, a Slovakian name would still be in common use. And since the whole article has {{unreferenced}} it is hardly surprising it is unreferenced.

Please don't take this personally, I know you do a good job.

Best wishes Si Trew (talk) 14:09, 7 December 2009 (UTC)


Thank you for your message. I have been collecting books on the history of Hungary written in English; so sooner or later, I will continue to edit those articles as well. For the time being, sincerely, I am more interested in editing articles in connection with the history of the Rus' principalities, Cilician Armenia and Romania - and I managed to buy some really good books on these topics. Happy New Year for you and for yours, as well. Borsoka (talk) 14:04, 3 January 2010 (UTC)

Section title[edit]

[4]. I don't revert that, but I thought that intelligibility is of high priority. "János Hunyadi" and "John Hunyadi" are the widely used English forms. Isn't it important that other, not yet involved readers easily understand what the section is about? Squash Racket (talk) 14:34, 18 March 2010 (UTC)

I agree with the intelligibility part, but seeing the fuss concerning "Removed\edited comments" i deemed it more prudent to keep the original version. Partly because of WP:VAN, partly to prevent another edit war over something - excuse me for the wording - as silly as a comment and a header.

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 17:56, 19 June 2010 (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.
