Things to do


I answered you on the talk page - first, you can research wikiproject countries, and second - the later administrative levels are described and referenced within articles and references like the politics templates, not on the first page. Please do not change this. Thank you. Rarelibra 12:49, 15 August 2007 (UTC)

In other words, you wish to go against the work that those of us (such as WikiProject Countries) are doing to standardize articles on Wikipedia. ALL countries have "administrative divisions" - but the wikiproject has the individual countries titled after the first and/or second (or third, in some cases - if the information is available) divisions - any further (fourth, fifth, and even sixth) are explained and titled elsewhere in the subdivision articles, not the main article. Please realize this. You don't have to disagree - but do your research first. Thank you. Rarelibra 14:55, 15 August 2007 (UTC)

Democratic elections in Moçambique[edit]

(In answer to your comment on my page)

I'm afraid I don't have any reference or citation however my recollection is that during the transition period there were multiple parties. Did any elections happened then?

Under Frelimo there were single party elections. People voted therefore they were (by some peoples definitions) democratic. Were these contested between multiple Frelimo canditates? Were candidates selected in open meeting with public participation?

Even under Portugal I believe they had elections. I think they may even have had some sort of faked up multi-party arrangement.

My personal belief is that the 1994 elections were more democratic than those that went before however neutral point of view requires that we describe the previous elections and the restrictions that applied so our readers know more about them and can decide for themselves if they want to label those elections 'democratic' or not. We can't just label them as not "democratic" when there isn't even a general accepted NPOV definition of what is or is not a "democratic" election.

Now where can we get hold of info on elections during the portugese period, the transition period and the Machel period?Filceolaire 09:48, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

Nelinho article[edit]

Hello. I've noticed an edit war between you and User:Maracana on this article over the countyofbirth field. I don't agree with Maracana's approach to mass editing of these types of articles (without any discussion) but his view is that the infobox should identify the name of the country at the time of the person's birth. There has been a great deal of discussion about this (especially for former Soviet republics), and I believe the concensus is to use the name of the country at the time of the person's birth. In short, I don't think it's worth arguing with him about it (I've given up). Best regards. Jogurney (talk) 13:29, 8 May 2008 (UTC)

Jorge Cadete[edit]

Sorry, I reverted your edit per WP:DATE, and not the whys or wherefores of the name of Mozambique. Peanut4 (talk) 15:29, 28 June 2008 (UTC)

Jorge Cadete edit war[edit]

Hi there. The edit war at Jorge Cadete is getting a bit daft now. I've started a discussion on the talk page to try and come to a solution. Could we please try come to a solution so we can move forward. Peanut4 (talk) 21:23, 11 July 2008 (UTC)

Estádio de Ferroviário[edit]

Sorry, I was on an editing binge (merging pages and verifying unsourced articles). I couldn't find any real reliable sources or any reason why it should be on wikipedia. If you care about the article, show you care by improving it! Kpstewart (talk) 01:39, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

Mozambique Railway[edit]

Dear Teixant... seeking information on the performance of Vale in Mozambique, and on the transfer of locomotives EMD DDM45 from Brazil to Mozambique. Would have some information? Meloaraujo (talk) 00:35, 21 December 2010 (UTC)

Corrections on the "Mozambican Civil War" article[edit]

Thanks very much for correcting my errors, some of which - to my shame - I should have noticed myself. I intend to continue work on this article, so I'd be grateful, if you could check my future edits, too. I'll try not to be too much work ;)

Freixo vs. Freizo[edit]

Hello Teixant. I wanted to let you know that I've reverted this edit. I perfectly understand what you say, but there's a policy of verifiability to follow, which is closely related to WP:VNT, and says that verifiability is preferred over truth. We cannot override the policies. Regards.--Jetstreamer Talk 21:07, 1 November 2013 (UTC)

Mário Coluna[edit]

Hello TEIXANT, AL from Portugal,

please (please!) leave the article's intro as it is please. I agree with you without the technicalities, he was Mozambican. But, like Eusébio, he played for Portugal internationally, so he was a PORTUGUESE FOOTBALLER and a MOZAMBICAN HUMAN BEING, if you will.

We have to respect WP guidelines and rules. Besides, in the article's early storyline, it states exactly where he was born, so more to his Mozambican "status" there OK?

Happy editing and weekend --AL (talk) 00:08, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

July 2015[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Callmemirela. I noticed that you made a change to an article, Portugal, but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed and archived in the page history for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you need guidance on referencing, please see the referencing for beginners tutorial, or if you think I made a mistake, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you.

Malawi claim[edit]

OK, but what about this then? I just acted according to what is said here. Malawi claims whole lake except the Mozambique's part and that is a dotted line in the image. Sorry, I didn't zoom the image. And that gives a reverse impression in the eyes. :-) Thanks for the correction. -- KWiki (talk) 22:27, 11 August 2015 (UTC)

Mário Wilson[edit]

Hello again from Portugal Mr. Teixant (I was the one that left you the message titled "Mário Coluna", now I don't have an account anymore),

it's customary to leave the current name of the article in the wording (in this case Primeira Liga), I think not to mislead readers. You can ask here ( to see that I'm not lying, and for the moment I have not re-reverted anything, it stays your way.

Also, I see you were offended by my use of "period" in the edit summary. Believe me, I was not being insulting or trying to belittle you, only being assertive, but I apologize for any inconvenience that may have occurred.

Happy editing -- (talk) 15:03, 19 February 2016 (UTC)

  • Thanks, I read it. The question I think you could/should pose was: "Should we hide the Primeira Liga wording (which is the current title for the WP article) when addressing a player that competed there when the competition had another name?" That's just an option.

Attentively -- (talk) 20:55, 24 February 2016 (UTC)
