Howdy[edit]

Hello ZanderSchubert. I see you've been contributing to Wikipedia for quite some time. In case you hadn't already discovered them, I just wanted to let you know abou the Australian resources on Wikipedia that might assist your editing. Be sure to check out the Australia Portal, the Australian Wikipedians' Notice Board, the Australian Collaboration of the Fortnight, new Australian articles and Australian stub articles. By the way, you can list yourself at Australian Wikipedians. Happy editing,--cj | talk 04:15, 18 March 2006 (UTC)


Word association[edit]

Thank you for your contributions to the Word association game. As per the rules please can you only add one word at a time to each of the games - even if they are separate words, as this keeps it interesting and enjoyable for the maximum number of people. Partly for this reason I have removed your entry "Diet" from the "Serfdom" game - the other part of the reason is that "Diet" has already been used in that game (row 4, column 5, surrounded by "Catwalk", "Opera", "Kosher" and "Bullimia"). That said I do hope you continue to enjoy playing the games. Thryduulf 11:18, 19 March 2006 (UTC)

SA table[edit]

You might want to give the party numbers another look over there. You've marked three confirmed independents, when there's only two (McEwen and Such), and I assume Hanna isn't the third, seeing as he and Gunn are assumedly the two marked undecided. Ambi 01:48, 20 March 2006 (UTC)

I kinda knew the maths was off, considering that the table and the listings don't necessarily say the same thing. I'll get to editing it. ZanderSchubert 01:53, 20 March 2006 (UTC)

Re: The seat of Mitchell has been, erm, being[edit]

I don't encourage userboxes unless they're relevant to Wikipedia. The SEO's data is out-of-date. As reported in the media, Hanna eventually prevailed - but only just. Happy editing, --cj | talk 09:25, 28 March 2006 (UTC)

Well, I think it's somewhat humourous, and it's not like they're taking that much space on the Wiki servers, right? Right? ZanderSchubert 09:31, 28 March 2006 (UTC) Oh, PS: How zomfging quick was that to reply, I like put it up like two seconds ago and you were totally like yo man you like are totally not real with this thing right and I'm like woah dude hold up I just got myself an icecream sandwich...
Woah. I should think while I'm typing next time. I'm sorry. I really am. PPS: Do you think Universal Translators of the future will list American English and British English as seperate languages?

RE: Foxtel channel numbers[edit]

Hi there, the changes are on http://www.foxtel.com.au/5085.htm . Seems the history channel +2 has been replaced with W +2.

Admin of Wikimedia: the IP 203.28.159.167 is used by a residential college of over 200 people. Please be wary of this if you need to block "Fredguy" again.

We can't control how the autoblocker works, I'm sorry. What ISP is this by the way? I'm looking into contacting your ISP to see if we can find the source of his vandalism. --  Netsnipe  ►  03:24, 27 October 2006 (UTC)
This is Lincoln College (University of Adelaide). We used to run through the Uni servers, but I have no idea what setup we're using now and I don't know the extra-collegial way of contacting the computer gurus here (who'll be busy with exams anyway...!). ZanderSchubert 04:07, 27 October 2006 (UTC)

Canberra area code[edit]

Hi. I noticed you (some time ago) inserted the following comment into Former Australian dialling codes about Canberra's area code being (06) even though several directories listed it as (062). I know Canberra's area code was (062) back in the 70s and 80s, were you referring to back then or to the time just before Canberra changed to (02)62xx xxxx (I wasn't in Canberra then)? Perhaps a clarifying comment might be in order. Regards Paddles TC 06:02, 2 June 2007 (UTC)

  • According to the official site, Canberra changed from (06) 2xx xxxx to (02) 62xx xxxx. I guess sometime during (or before) the 90s, the 2 was incorporated into the subscriber number, making a 20% increase in numbers. Don’t know when this happened, but I’ll phrase the comment a bit better, and maybe add that, even further back, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth were (072), (082) and (092). ZanderSchubert 07:04, 2 June 2007 (UTC)
    • Thanks! Yes, it's entirely possible that the 2 was moved into subscribers numbers some time in the 90s, I'm not certain. By the way, I'm not certain whether the same was true of Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth or not - for example, I don't have any recollections of seeing Brisbane as (072) back at the time when Canberra was (062), but people who lived there at that time would be more reliable than me. Paddles TC 00:09, 3 June 2007 (UTC)
      • It was because they were (072), (082) and (092) back in the 1970s or earlier. Or, at least, it seems like it from the really old telephone directories I've found. (Jeez, I feel like I'm doing nothing productive these days...!) ZanderSchubert 09:41, 3 June 2007 (UTC)
        • Well I'd certainly trust them over my memory. By the way, I only stumbled on this page while trying to find information for someone who was trying to work out where an old six-digit phone number might be in an attempt to track down a copyright holder. So the information is potentially useful! :) Paddles TC 10:23, 3 June 2007 (UTC)
          • Well, if you have the area code, it will be quite easy, because it becomes part of the subscriber number (except for Queensland, Sydney and Melbourne...), in the case of Canberra, (062) xxx xxx or (06) 2xx xxxx becomes (02) 62xx xxxx. If it’s Sydney, though, it would go from (02) xxx xxx to (02) 91xx xxxx. If it’s got a different area code, msg me again, but if there is none, hopefully there will be some way to work out what the number is from the location. ZanderSchubert 11:06, 3 June 2007 (UTC)

Minor Edits not so minor?[edit]

Hi there ZanderSchubert, looks like your edits are generally fabulous, and I have noticed that you are using the 'minor' tag quite frequently. Could I trouble you to (re-)read http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minor_edit ? Things like the recent Australian_vehicle_number_plates and Regional_television_in_Australia edits contain reviewable content..... Thanks. Karl2620 12:00, 23 June 2007 (UTC)

You're right. I have been using the "minor edit" tag too frequently in recent edits, and my definition of "minor" was a bit off: I added a "minor" piece of info on the TV page, while the other was "formatting" (I changed the format of the info, not the info itself, unless I misinterpreted a couple of the formats)... the only thing I can see wrong was using the minor edit tag, and I'll use it sparingly in the future. Thanks for the heads up. ZanderSchubert 14:07, 23 June 2007 (UTC)

Image:RussiaTime.png[edit]

My best guess so far.

Hi. I was just wondering what source you used for the interior divisions in the Sakha Republic in Image:RussiaTime.png. Wondering because I'm thinking of creating a vector version of your map with the updated Russian map. /Lokal_Profil 16:09, 12 April 2008 (UTC)

  • As written in the description, it's this image, with a little editing to remove the numbers. ZanderSchubert (talk) 03:40, 13 April 2008 (UTC)
Sorry, what I meant was how you found the lines that split the Sakha Republic (14 on this map) into the three different couloured parts in Image:RussiaTime.png. /Lokal_Profil 13:15, 13 April 2008 (UTC)
I did them mostly by sight, roughly based on this map. ZanderSchubert (talk) 04:49, 14 April 2008 (UTC)
OK, I was hoping that there was some magic way of making it easy =). Thanks /Lokal_Profil 20:47, 14 April 2008 (UTC)
My best guess so far is the image to the right. Your link helped clear out some of the question marks but it's still a guess. /Lokal_Profil 22:07, 14 April 2008 (UTC)

Foxtel HD Channel Numbers[edit]

The channels appeared on the EPG today --bacco007 (talk) 12:21, 23 May 2008 (UTC)

Your VHF channel chart has a few errors...[edit]

Japanese channels 8-11 are identical to American channels 10-13. Japanese channel 12 directly follows 8-11 in sequential order. Check the table in the article and adjust channels 8-12 in the chart accordingly.

PRC channel 3 directly follows channel 2. Again, check the table. Therefore, please remove the nonexistent channel 3 that overlaps the existing channel 2 from the chart. Also, those "z" channels, I believe, are cable channels not used for terrestrial transmission. Please remove the "z" channels from the chart.

Also, after the line that says "M (6MHz, 525 line)", please add a line below that says "N (6MHz, 625 line)". System N is used in Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay.

Your chart Phönizisch-5Sprachen.svg[edit]

First of all let me tell you how much I admire your work. I have never seen such a good synopsis of the alphabets derived from Phoenician as this chart. I am contacting you because of an error I detected there: You show the Arabic Sin as being derived from Samekh and Shin from Shin. In actual fact both Arabic letters, Sin and Shin are derived from Aramaic Shin. The Samekh is lost in Arabic. Berndf (talk) 14:07, 10 February 2010 (UTC)

Firstly, thanks, but I'm not the one you should be praising: I based the SVG version of that image from a low-quality PNG that was previously on the page. (Hence why the title of the graphic is in German even though I don't speak that language.) But, yes, you are right: the original image showed Sin with a different colour to Samech, and I didn't put that it: it's now been corrected. Thanks. ZanderSchubert (talk) 04:00, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for contributing to this article. The chart referred to with its colour spectrum reminds me of C.C. Elian's Chromatic Alphabet (http://www.ccelian.com/chromalpha.html). The progression of each letter having its own colour is the same. Did you adapt that Alphabet's use of the spectrum for this chart? (CJSinclair (talk) 04:32, 24 April 2010 (UTC))

It's an SVG version of an image I didn't actually create. You'll have to ask German Wikipedia user Korny78] about that. ZanderSchubert (talk) 06:51, 26 April 2010 (UTC)

Romanization for Shanghainese[edit]

Phönizisch-5Sprachen[edit]

Hi, have you created the table of Latin, Greek, Phoenician, Hebrew, Arabic alphabet? And if so could you add a column for Cyrillic?

DWay (talk) 19:22, 16 December 2010 (UTC)

Sources...[edit]

Wikipedia must be based on reliable sources. But if those sources have little errors, or things that we can improve that are uncontroversial and obvious, then we don't have to blindly copy them over. Are you seriously suggesting I'm wrong? Or that my info is not verified? The "Celebes" is a case in point - this is an anachronistic term. And, removing unnecessary redirects is important too. --Merbabu (talk) 06:44, 22 January 2011 (UTC)

Time in Russia[edit]

Two times[1][2] you attempted to purge an information about UTC+04 use in Moscow in Summer (correspondingly: UTC+03 in Kaliningrad, UTC+06 in Urals, and so on). I consider this as a disruption (and quickly revert such edits) unless you attempted to prove your point. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 10:25, 22 February 2011 (UTC)

Map of territorial claims by the ROC[edit]

Could you update the File:ROC Administrative and Claims.svg featured in the Republic of China article among others to reflect modern spelling conventions? Wikipedia naming convention is to use Hanyu Pinyin except when some other romanization is clearly the most common in English." "Taipei" isn't Hanyu Pinyin (That would be Taibei) but its clearly the most common in English. The same cannot be said for any of the place names on the mainland. Beijing is not commonly known as "Peiping" in English. Also Wikipedia tends to use "Burma" and not "Myanmar". Bringing these issues to a file's talk page on Commons is not particularly useful, so I brought it here. Metal.lunchbox (talk) 21:02, 3 August 2011 (UTC)
