I wanna give you a prize[edit]

Hi, I'm Javitomad, a Spanish user of English wikipedia.

I've seen you've created some articles about Spain.

Because of that, I want to give you a Barnstar, the Spanish Barnstar.

Striking your vote[edit]

Hello Zape82,

Thank you for your interest in the Wikimedia Board Election. The Election Committee regretfully informs you that your previous vote was received in error and will be struck according to the election rules, described below.

The Election Committee regretfully announces today that we will have to remove approximately 220 votes submitted. These votes were cast by people not entitled to vote. The election rules state that users must have at least 400 edits by June 1 to be eligible to vote.

The voter lists we sent to Software in the Public Interest (our third party election partner) initially were wrong, and one of your account was eventually included to our initial list. There was a bug in the edit counting program and the sent list contained every account with 201 or more edits, instead of 400 or more edits. So large numbers of people were qualified according to the software who shouldn't be. The bug has been fixed and an amended list was sent to SPI already.

Our first (and wrong) list contains 80,458 accounts as qualified. The proper number of qualified voters in the SPI list is now 52,750. As of the morning of July 4 (UTC), there are 2,773 unique voters and 220 people, including you, have voted who are not qualified based upon this identified error.

In accordance with voting regulations the Election Committee will strike those approximately 220 votes due to lack of voting eligibility. The list of struck votes is available at

We are aware of the possibility that some of the people affected may have other accounts with more than 400 edits, and hence may still be eligible to vote. We encourage you to consider voting again from another account, if you have one. If you have no other account eligible to vote, we hope you reach the criteria in the next Election, and expect to see your participation to the future Elections.

Your comments, questions or messages to the Committee would be appreciated, you can make them at m:Talk:Board elections/2007/en. Other language versions are available at m:Translation requests/Eleccom mail, 07-05.

Again, we would like to deeply apologize for any inconvenience.

Language selection[edit]

The final word in this edit summary is unfortunately selected, and not civil. Please refrain from incivility in the future, regardless of any provocation. Also consider strategies for defusing heated editing situations. GRBerry 15:13, 4 December 2007 (UTC)

Bloqueamiento de Vivaflor[edit]

I have asked please to undelete my identity. I think that article was quite interesting and informative. It shows what goes on in the General Courts in Spain. Also the statics attached were of public interest since they showed the amount of men killed by women (figures that are never shown anywhere). If Wikipedia claims to be free, democratic, informative, fair and not for personal use, then my identity "Vivaflor" should have not been deleted. I am no "puppet" of anyone, I am a person with a name, second name,conscious, mind and thought and I should not have been deleted by your supposed reasons that do not exist. Please reconsider. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:41, 5 December 2007 (UTC)


Thanks for the information, I was acting as good faith as I considered that the article is not well located moreover due to a defective translation.

I put this post in the discussion explaining my opinion, is that the way isn't it?

I hope someone corrects that.


I agree, the official name is not Community of Madrid but Comunidad Autonoma de Madrid thus Madrid Autonomous Community. Moreover in the traffic signals that are located on the Madrid AC borders only say "Madrid" because thats the real name of the region (as the Comunidad Autonoma de Castilla-La Mancha is referred only as Castile-La Mancha or the Comunidad Autonoma de Catalunya is referred only as Catalonia).

Madrilians call the Madrid AC as Comunidad de Madrid cause it is the name of the government (as I think is the intention of the above post who claims that Commonwealth of Madrid should be the correct translation, but thats is for another disccussion, maybe).

That the name of Community of Madrid is not official for the territory there is in the article evidences as the parlamentary brach of the "Commonwealth" of Madrid is called simply "Assembly of Madrid" and the head of the Commonwealth is now, after Ruiz Gallardon reformation, called simply "the President of Madrid" (despite people are still calling Presidente de la Comunidad---> President of the Commonwealth).

I consider that the administrators should move the article to Madrid Autonomous Community or Autonomous Community of Madrid and redirect Madrid to a dissambiguation page for chosing between the Town and the AC. --Dzamandzar (talk) 12:52, 19 February 2010 (UTC)


Well spotted, I thought that section was a little perverted from its sources. Do you think that mentioning his supposed anti-semitism should be in the lead? I cut it down a bit because it was too detailed for the lead, what do you think? Best wishes ValenShephard 17:51, 28 June 2010 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by ValenShephard (talkcontribs)

Notification of proposal to ban Spanish articles from Did You Know?[edit]

Dear WikiProject Spain member,

There is currently a proposal to ban articles concerning a large area of southern Andalusia from appearing on the Main Page of Wikipedia in the Did you know? section. This would affect a significant number of articles within the scope of WikiProject Spain. If you have a view on this proposal, please see Wikipedia talk:Did you know/Gibraltar-related DYKs‎#Proposal for one-year moratorium on Gibraltarpedia DYKs. In addition, you may have a view on an alternative proposal to lift restrictions on Gibraltar-related articles on DYK - please see Wikipedia talk:Did you know/Gibraltar-related DYKs#Proposal for lifting the restrictions on Gibraltar-related DYKs.

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.

Europe 10,000 Challenge invite[edit]

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Europe/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like Germany, Italy, the Benelux countries, Iberian Peninsula, Romania, Slovenia etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. If you would like to see masses of articles being improved for Europe and your specialist country like Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon, sign up today and once the challenge starts a contest can be organized. This is a way we can target every country of Europe, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant and also sign under any country sub challenge on the page that you might contribute to! Thank you. --MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 21:09, 7 November 2016 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Juan Ignacio Zoido[edit]

Hello, Zape82. I wanted to let you know that I’m proposing an article that you started, Juan Ignacio Zoido, for deletion because it's a biography of a living person that lacks references. If you don't want Juan Ignacio Zoido to be deleted, please add a reference to the article.

If you don't understand this message, you can leave a note on my talk page.

Thanks, William2001(talk) 02:53, 16 November 2016 (UTC)
