I think we are having edit conflicts...sorry....I will fix all the Google links later today. -- Moxy (talk) 18:51, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

Re: Bergamo - Buenos Aires[edit]

Here is the link, it works for me. Try with a different browser and let me know. --Kingston28 (talk) 22:34, 28 March 2015 (UTC)

Sorry, my bad. I fixed the link. --Kingston28 (talk) 22:39, 28 March 2015 (UTC)

Bergamo - Polish towns[edit]

You can see them in the link you put at the beginning "Dabrowa - Gornicza, Olkusz, Boleslaw (Polonia)" are three different cities which share with Bergamo some of the places where the Italian patriot and Polish general Francesco Nullo lived. --Kingston28 (talk) 23:05, 28 March 2015 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for April 18[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that you've added some links pointing to disambiguation pages. 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.

Japanese School in Zurich[edit]

Thanks for editing the article! Just a few things:

  • 1. Japanese School in Zurich does not have senior high school/upper secondary. Because senior high is not compulsory, the vast majority of Japanese schools worldwide, including the one in Zurich, stop after junior high. Students wishing to complete senior high may go back to Japan, or attend an English-speaking international school (many Japanese in Brussels do this), or they may board at Kumon Leysin or another Japanese boarding school in the UK. This is a list of all Japanese senior high school programs outside of Japan ("スイス公文学園高等部" is Kumon Leysin).
  • 2. In English the most common names of levels of education in Japan are "elementary school," "junior high school," and "senior high school" (shōgakkō (1-6), chūgakkō (7-9), kōtōgakkō (10-12)), using English terms from the United States. AFAIK in East Asia (Japan, South Korea, China, Taiwan) the English names of school levels usually reflects American naming. However Chinese often use "Middle School" which means something different in China: "Middle School" or Zhongxue is actually levels 7-12 or all of secondary school, not only lower secondary as it's known in the USA.

Why did you not accept the correction I provided[edit]

This help request has been answered. If you need more help, you can ask another question on your talk page, contact the responding user(s) directly on their user talk page, or consider visiting the Teahouse.

Thank you for your message. I corrected a wrong number, using the original source. Why did you change it, writing the wrong number again ? Obviously the 'quality assurance' did not work. Petr.Pospisil (talk) 06:32, 11 May 2015 (UTC)

Please read the explanation given on the talk page: Talk:List of countries by traffic-related death rate#Adjusted figures – why and how!. -- ZH8000 (talk) 08:01, 11 May 2015 (UTC)

How may I get a copy of this document?[edit]

Hi! There is a document which I am unable to find online:

How many I get a copy of this?

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Please be particularly aware that Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing.

You are reverting tags marking disputed areas of the article. That is inappropriate: they need to be worked out on the talk page. Removing tags, though not strictly vandalism, can nonetheless get you blocked. — kwami (talk) 20:12, 18 May 2015 (UTC)

You are really funny. LOL -- ZH8000 (talk) 20:14, 18 May 2015 (UTC)



I don't really get that revert (nor the other one on St-Blaise, btw): the text I removed mentions Le Locle and La Chaux de Fond in the Neuchatel (the city, not the canton) economy section where they obviously do not belong; while what I added relates to, afaik, the only local brand that made it internationally (as a side note, Le Locle has a bunch of brand names right up to the introductory paragraph: that would fit WP:SOAP). I'll beef up the article over the next few days, but honestly you could have been a little more helpful there, eh.

Edit warring at Atlanta[edit]

Your recent edits at this Wikipedia article indicate you are involved in an edit war. Please discuss this content dispute at the article talk page. It is time to ask other editors to get involved, and to attempt to reach a consensus. No one wins, and Wikipedia is damaged, when editors act in a disruptive manner. — Neonorange (talk) 05:52, 29 May 2015 (UTC)

Please, see here: Talk:Atlanta#Salzburg -- ZH8000 (talk) 06:58, 30 May 2015 (UTC)

May 2015[edit]

Please stop your disruptive behaviour. Your behaviour is verging on harassment. Wikipedia prides itself on providing a safe environment for its collaborators, and harassing edits, such as the one you made to User talk:Onel5969, potentially compromise that safe environment. If you continue behaving like this, you may be blocked from editing. Winner 42 Talk to me! 19:15, 30 May 2015 (UTC)

I simply follow the WP policies and I will raise a flag against User:Onel5969 as often as he tries me to harass, like he has been doing now for several times. -- ZH8000 (talk) 19:19, 30 May 2015 (UTC)
No, you have been repeatedly posting on his talk page after he told you not to. This is harassment and can lead to a block if it continues. Additionally, I see no evidence of Onel5969 harassing you, please provide evidence in the form of diffs or nothing will ever come of it. Winner 42 Talk to me! 19:23, 30 May 2015 (UTC)
You find it in the message you deleted by yourself. -- ZH8000 (talk) 19:28, 30 May 2015 (UTC)
Having a discussion on a talk page about a content dispute is not harassment. Winner 42 Talk to me! 19:46, 30 May 2015 (UTC)
Remarks, such as "This is my last interaction with you, since you are so uncivil", or "rev nonsense", or "Reverting moronic comments by someone who does not understand the difference between an article's talk page and a user's own talk page," (this claim is still wrong), or simply "any further comments from this editor will be automatically deleted" which violates clearly WP:TPO, which clearly says: "Never edit or move someone's comment to change its meaning, even on your own talk page. Striking text constitutes a change in meaning, and should only be done by the user who wrote it or someone acting at their explicit request.". Cf. change summaries on Onel5969's talk page history) -- ZH8000 (talk) 20:03, 30 May 2015 (UTC)
While the edit summaries are rude at worst and could be considered uncivil, they are a reasonable response to someone repeatedly posting unwanted talk page comments. I do not see any examples of him refactoring or striking your comments, please provide diffs. Winner 42 Talk to me! 20:12, 30 May 2015 (UTC)

Here you go: it started with: [1]. And now I have to leave from here, if you do not mind. -- ZH8000 (talk) 20:19, 30 May 2015 (UTC)

Frankly, if you can't see that removing a post from one's own talk page after one has seen it does not come under the heading of "edit or move someone's comment to change its meaning" (my emphasis) then you have a strange inability to understand English. What you have been doing is harassing of another editor, whether you understand that it is or not, and you really really are going to be blocked before long if you continue. Posting a totally spurious report at Wikipedia:Administrator intervention against vandalism does not help your case, either. The editor who uses the pseudonym "JamesBWatson" (talk) 20:16, 30 May 2015 (UTC)

One more attempt to communicate with you, and then I give up. Refactoring or striking does not mean removing. Get it? The editor who uses the pseudonym "JamesBWatson" (talk) 20:34, 30 May 2015 (UTC)

JamesBWatson: Well, dear JamesBWatson, patience is still a virtue (not a very "adminstrative" behavior IMHO). Imagine, there are people with a real life outside of WP! ;-)
About your thought: We can securly claim that deleting one half of a message does indeed change its meaning, even without stressing the semantics of the term 'meaning'. -- ZH8000 (talk) 22:19, 31 May 2015 (UTC)
