Copyright violations[edit]

Is Millán Astray a copyvio? Everyking 03:12, 30 Dec 2004 (UTC)

Did you copy and paste it from another website? Everyking 23:27, 30 Dec 2004 (UTC)
I have ended up handling virtually all of your work in the English-language Wikipedia as probable copyright violations. At least one other administrator has suggested to me that I should simply block this account. I am not going to do that at this time, but please, you are doing no one any favors when you paste copyrighted material into Wikipedia, all you do is waste a lot of our time removing it.
If you believe I am wrong in believing that this material constitutes copyright violations, the discussions on this take place on WP:CP. -- Jmabel | Talk 05:30, Jan 3, 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for the communication about LaCucaracha and the Spanish Civil War material. Please, though, I'm pretty sure that the information you took from Spartacus.net was not copyleft.

When you are taking substantive information with permission from another site and putting it into Wikipedia, please:

  1. Be very clear where the information comes from: this is simply a matter of ethics and respect. We wish to acknowledge our sources, especially those who donate significant material. In a case like this one, it's also important to make it clear that there is a source for this material that may be less restrictive than Wikipedia, so we don't accidentally accuse a third site who get the material legitimately from LaCucaracha of stealing it from us.
  2. Place the information about permission on the relevant talk page at the time you are inserting material. This has been eating a lot of time from a lot of people trying to clear up the copyright issue after the fact.

I'm sorry if this is a little bit complicated, but the nature of Wikipedia is such that if we weren't vigilant about copyright matters, we would probably be subject to a slew of lawsuits. -- Jmabel | Talk 19:39, Jan 4, 2005 (UTC)

You asked on my user talk page:"What I dont undestand about the articles from Spartacus and Legion Irlandaise or any other fee-view page is if it is free-view I dont c y it can be viewed from Wikipedia or any other non-profit page?"

Being allowed to view a page for free is not the same as being allowed to copy it and post it on another server. For example, anyone can look at Wikipedia pages for free, but they can re-post them only under terms that comply with GFDL.

By default, writings, pictures, etc. are copyrighted by their creators. That is, if someone writes something original, and does nothing about the rights to it, that material is copyrighted. Making it public (for free or for money) does not change this. Unless that person explicitly grants rights to someone else, it's still theirs. There is such a thing as fair use (at least under U.S. law; similar, but not identical, concepts exist in other countries), but it is very limited; see Fair use and Wikipedia:Fair use. It does not include picking up large passages of someone else's text and pasting them into Wikipedia.

Conversely, some sites place their content into the public domain or otherwise license them in a way that is compatible with GFDL. We can use those. Still, basic intellectual honesty includes acknowledging where the material came from. For example the 1911 Encyclopædia Britannica is now old enough to be in the public domain. We take a lot of content from it (usually as a first draft of an article to be updated, and we indicate at the bottom of each relevant page that we have done so, using Template:1911 or some similar notice.

Note that at the bottom of every edit page on Wikipedia it says:

DO NOT SUBMIT COPYRIGHTED WORK WITHOUT PERMISSION!
  • All contributions to Wikipedia are released under the GNU Free Documentation License (see Project:Copyrights for details).
  • If you do not want your writing to be edited mercilessly and redistributed at will, do not submit it.
  • By submitting your work you promise you wrote it yourself, or copied it from public domain resources — this does not include most web pages.

Note especially that last phrase: "[T]his does not include most web pages."

You might want to read Wikipedia:Copyrights. It is a bit dense, so if any of it is confusing, do feel free to ask questions, either at Wikipedia talk:Copyrights or by contacting me or any of the hundreds of other administrators. -- Jmabel | Talk 23:14, Jan 4, 2005 (UTC)

Have u contacted Cucaracha? What about Spartcus and Legion Irlandaise? What administator wanted to expell me from wikipedia?

I've contacted Cucaracha. I presume they will get back to me. Assuming that what you passed me was what they really wrote to you, I'm sure the answer will by "yes". I haven't contacted Spartacus because I know we don't have permission to take their material. Note that on their cite they routinely say, "The narrative text on this website is copyright. This means that any school which copies the site for local use onto a school cache is in breach of copyright. If your school wishes to copy the site in this way, there is a tariff of charges. Please contact Spartacus Educational spartacus@pavilion.co.uk for details." As you can imagine, if they are not open to schools making local copies, they are certainly not open to us re-posting pages on another site.
As for what administrator wanted to expel you, see Wikipedia:Administrator's_noticeboard#Copyvio_problem; that's a non-archival page, so the discussion won't be there much longer. You do need to understand: Violation of copyright is illegal. Not just against Wikipedia's rules, but against the laws of almost every country in the world. When a person repeatedly pastes copyrighted material into Wikipedia without permission, if we don't stop them, we can be seen as collaborating. Too much of this sort of thing and we will be sued. So we are very careful about it, probably more than about almost anything else. -- Jmabel | Talk 23:42, Jan 4, 2005 (UTC)

You really don't get it, do you? I'm still waiting to hear from Cucaracha to confirm that what you are doing at Spanish Civil War is legal, and you go ahead and do it again without waiting for them to confirm back to me. I personally am not going to block your account, because I think you are probably well-intentioned (even if your lack of comprehension of the seriousness of a legal matter like this is just about bulletproof) but I sure won't come to your defense if someone else does. -- Jmabel | Talk 04:47, Jan 5, 2005 (UTC)

The site that the Legion Irlandaise material came from is pretty clear about their copyright policy: © Copyright: Unless otherwise noted, all information, images, data contained within this website is protected by copyright under international law. Any unauthorized use of material contained here is strictly forbidden. All rights reserved.

Have you read the pages I aimed you at (Project:Copyrights in particular)? Wikipedia is not mainly about copying material from other places, and it's not my (or anyone else's) role to chase down rights to every page that you (or any other user) would like to copy. I'm sorry if this sounds harsh, but Wikipedia is mostly about people writing new material based on knowledge and research. -- Jmabel | Talk 21:34, Jan 5, 2005 (UTC)

I still haven't received an email back from webmaster@lacucaracha.info. Since I gather that you have successfully communicated with him, could you please encourage him to write me back? Otherwise, all of this material you are adding remains under a cloud and is very likely to be deleted. I will also drop him another note myself. -- Jmabel | Talk 19:50, Jan 7, 2005 (UTC)

I still haven't received any email. Is this the same address you mailed to? I really don't want to delete all your work, but if I don't hear from them I will have no choice. -- Jmabel | Talk 23:43, Jan 9, 2005 (UTC)

OK, I finally got notice from Cucaracha. You're in the clear. I'll post appropriately, and this will be fine.

Please, in the future, if you want to take content from another web site, seek their permission in advance. As I'm sure you can imagine, this sort of thing is not how any of us love to spend our time. -- 00:24, Jan 11, 2005 (UTC)

Juventudes Socialistas Unificadas[edit]

Y r u accusing me 4 copyediting??User:Jugoslaven

I wrote copyedit (please follow the link) in the summary, which means that I fixed some minor formatting errors. It not that I am accusing you of any wrongdoing. In fact Juventudes Socialistas Unificadas looks like a perfectly fine article that you wrote yourself. Thue | talk 14:52, 6 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Download[edit]

Downloadana Wikipedia? Kako to misliš? Ne znam za takav feature... jedino znam da se može skinuti database dump, a to nije iskoristivo osim za statističke analize i slično. --Joy [shallot] 20:23, 7 Jan 2005 (UTC)

O downloadu database dumpova možeš pročitati na Wikipedia:Database download. Sumnjam da će ti to biti korisno.

Ne znam je li bilo lokalnih okupljanja, ja nisam čuo ni za jedno, niti bio. Gdje živiš? Ja sam u Zagrebu.

A za promjenu u Croatian language, ne slažem se da to tako treba pisati budući da članak postoji i argumentira kako to jest zaseban jezik, iako je dio ovoga što se naziva srpskohrvatski. --Joy [shallot]

Nema nas baš puno :/ Ima svega par ljudi koji su doista aktivni ovdje pa da bi možda bili zainteresirani za susret, ali i od njih su rijetki koji ne čuvaju svoju anonimnost... --Joy [shallot] 21:11, 7 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Padaju mi na pamet User:Mir Harven, User:Ivan Bajlo, User:SpeedyGonsales, User:Zmaj, ... pogledaj i nedavne promjene na hrvatskoj Wikipediji za bolji pregled ljudi koji su aktivni. --Joy [shallot] 21:40, 7 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Croatian geographical locations[edit]

Ja već odavno editiram i pratim sve što se tiče bilo kakvih geografskih pojmova u Hrvatskoj... samo ti daj, ali nemoj previše copy&pasteati. Npr. oni paragrafi o županima nisu potrebni na stranici *svake* županije. Sve gledam kako ću to maknuti ali malo je wikislow pa mi se ne da. --Joy [shallot] 23:14, 10 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Ono županima nisam ja pisao.Šta si pročitao da sam optužen za kršenje autorskih prava?

Ah, mislio sam da si ti stavljao te sve popise ali da si se zaboravio ulogirati ili nešto.

Što se tiče kršenja autorskih prava, to je nevezano... iako sam vidio tu da si nešto pasteao a da nisi provjerio licencu... ako trebaš nekakvo pojašnjenje, reci...

Vidio tu - na tvojoj talk stranici, ne na stranici te županije. --Joy [shallot]
Stvar je na popisu općina želim da link bude npr. Municipality of Lovinac a ne Municipality of Lovinac.

U osnovi, ja samo mislim da u naslovu članka ne treba stajati predmetak "Municipality of " jer je višak. Nema smisla praviti posebne članke za mjesto Lovinac i općinu Lovinac, jer ovo je ipak samo enciklopedija, ne doslovna kopija nekakvog katastra ili sličnog kirurški preciznog registra :) U par slučajeva se može odvojiti, ali nekako sumnjam da ćemo do takih doći...

A, ako samo želiš da ti se link na članak Lovinac iz nekog razloga prostire i na te prve dvije riječi, onda napraviš [[Lovinac|Municipality of Lovinac]].

Kako da stavim svoj projekt na wikiproject?

Pročitaj Wikipedia:WikiProject.

Što je to wikislow?

To je u žargonu opis stanja sporosti Wikipedijinih servera :)

--Joy [shallot] 23:46, 10 Jan 2005 (UTC)

</nowiki>


Možemo li molim te nastaviti raspravu o ovome na engleskom, na Talk:Counties of Croatia? Nema smisla da se nas dvojica tu polu-privatno dopisujemo na svom jeziku a stvar javna i još na engleskoj Wikipediji... --Joy [shallot] 23:19, 16 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Vandalizam na Bosniaks[edit]

Nažalost, tvoje mišljenje je krivo i ide suprotiv toga što je pisano u durgim člancima na wikipediji. 1.) Sprskohrvatski više ne postoji, umro je zajedno sa SFRJ. Bošnjaci govore bosanskim jezikom, to je poznato širom svijeta. Također, Bošnjaci smatraju da govore bosanski jezik, ne srpskohrvatski, i bosanski je jedan od tri službena jezika Bosne i Hercegovine. Srpskohrvatski danas postoji samo u knjigama povijesti. 2.) Gorani nisu Bošnjaci, nit je iko rekao da jesu. Međutim, ti koji se smatraju Bošnjacima u Sandžaku i Makedoniji jesu. 3.) Meša Selimović se je rodio prije nacionalnog buđenja Bošnjaka, i oženio je Srpkinju. Ipak, dio je Bošnjačke kulture. On je Bošnjak isto tako kao što je Ivo Andrić Hrvat. 4.) Srbija i Crna Gora imaju odvojene popise stanovništva, i nisu se dogodili u istoj godini. Asim Led 01:10, 11 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Opció k-95[edit]

Looks like a perfectly OK start on an article.

By the way, in English, place names, even in adjectival form, should always be capitalized ("Catalan", not "catalan", "Italian", not "italian"). -- Jmabel | Talk 17:54, Jan 20, 2005 (UTC)

Warning[edit]

Hi, since you have engaged in a revert war over at the Bosniak article, and came close to violating the 3RR, the next time you engage in this kind of behavior you will be blocked for policy violation. You now have an opportunity to reform and learn to work with other editors in peace and harmony. GeneralPatton 03:13, 21 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Image source[edit]

Discussion moved to Image talk:Allemanisch.jpg#Copyright.

Image:Zamora.jpg[edit]

Image deletion warning The image Image:Zamora.jpg has been listed at Wikipedia:Possibly unfree images. If the image's copyright status cannot be verified, it will be deleted. If you have any information on the source or licensing of this image, please go there to provide the necessary information.

Image:Agulhas1.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Agulhas1.jpg. I notice it currently doesn't have an image copyright tag. Until a more informative tag is provided, it will be listed as {{no source}} or {{no license}}. Could you add a better tag to let us know its source and/or copyright status? If you made the image yourself, an easy way to deal with this is add {{GFDL}} if you're willing to release it under the GFDL. Alternatively, you could release all rights to it by adding {{NoRightsReserved}}. This would allow anyone to do whatever they wish with your image, without exceptions. However, if it isn't your own image, you need to specify what free license it was distributed under. You can find a list of the tags here. If it was not distributed under a free license, but you claim fair use, add {{fairuse}} but you need to substantiate your claim by explaining why you think it's fair use. If you don't know what any of this means, just let me know where you got the images by posting to my talk page. If you do this, I can tag them for you. Thanks. RedWolf 06:30, July 24, 2005 (UTC)

Name change[edit]

I noticed you asked for a change of name to "Luka Jačov". We can change your name, (that's not a problem) but some users might compain that the č might be difficult to type. Would Luka Jacov acceptable? If not, would you create an alternate account titled "Luka Jacov" and redirected to Luka Jačov? (Luka Jacov will have to be permanently blocked then). =Nichalp «Talk»= 09:31, 20 September 2005 (UTC) Please reply on the name change page. Thank you. =Nichalp «Talk»= 09:31, 20 September 2005 (UTC)

Err we have a problem. The account "Luka Jacov" already exists, so we can't transfer Jugoslaven to Luka Jacov. If user:Luka Jacov is you, please login as user:Luka Jacov, and make a request to have your user name changed with that id. (This is a security check). Thank you. =Nichalp «Talk»= 09:56, 20 September 2005 (UTC)

Luko,[edit]

nije bilo pravilno promjeniti Rusin language kako si promjenio. 'Srpskohrvatski' ima politicku boju. Nije ga trebalo nazivati, mislim, jer Rusini zive odvojeno u Hrvatskoj i Srbiji. --VKokielov 23:50, 21 October 2005 (UTC)

Srpskohrvatski danas je skracenica. To je ocito. Mi mozemo plakati i trpati prstima tijelo dokaza o tome kako su sva N jezika jedan. Na kraju, mi to ne odlucujemo. Slozimo se bar oko toga. --VKokielov 22:04, 24 October 2005 (UTC)

Ajmo ponovo...[edit]

Mrzi me da ovo pisem na engleskom i necu da izgleda kao prozivanje (na onoj strani), pa cisto da ti dam par napomena: --millosh (talk (sr:)) 18:55, 27 October 2005 (UTC)

  1. Nemoj pomerati strane bez prethodnog koncenzusa. Postoji tacno odredjeni nacin na koji se pomera strana, a uputstva su ti i na samom templejtu koji sam postavio. --millosh (talk (sr:)) 18:55, 27 October 2005 (UTC)
  2. Moliski slovenski ili moliskoslovenski je dovoljno neutralno da se ne odredi sta je. Termini kao sto su "Serbian", "Croatian" itd. potpuno znace "srpski", "hrvatski" i samo jednoznacnost tera da se stavi "language/jezik" iza toga. Ipak, ovde ili treba ostaviti viseznacno ili navesti puno ime i napravidi redirekte sa jezika i dijalekta. Dakle, ime bi trebalo da bude "Moliskoslovenski knjizevni jezik i dijalekat" (tj. tako na engleskom). Jer to jeste (bio) knjizevni jezik. I treba obraditi i jednu i drugu stavku. --millosh (talk (sr:)) 18:55, 27 October 2005 (UTC)
  3. Podrazumeva se da imas izrazito malu podrsku postavljanju termina "srpskohrvatski". To je politicki u korpusu hrvatskog jezika i nema sta sad tu da se puno mudruje. Politicki korpus "srpskohrvatski" ne postoji i stvarno si naporan stalnim stavljanjem srpskohrvatskog u pricu. Ako se zeli izbeci politicka konotacija, onda se to treba uraditi kao sto sam ja prethodno uradio, a ne nametanjem jednog resenja. Usput, oko te terminologije mozemo organizovati i glasanje. --millosh (talk (sr:)) 18:55, 27 October 2005 (UTC)

Articles[edit]

Hi, it's nice to see people from various parts of the world contributing to Wikipedia. Scanning our edit histories, I have to assume you were referring to Maréchal, nous voilà !. Recently I've been spending some time adding articles on birds that are missing, but otherwise much of the time I spend going through the list of new pages to see what's being added, and whether it needs any minor formatting or grammar corrections, etc. I may register a username someday, but for now I'm happy as an anonymous contributor. Happy editing. 24.17.48.241 07:12, 10 November 2005 (UTC)

How did you find out? The Molise Slavic? HolyRomanEmperor 18:55, 10 November 2005 (UTC)

I am writing an article; but I fear the some wiki übernationalists won't accept it. I am already familiar with attempts to completly Croatize Dubrovnik..... HolyRomanEmperor 18:58, 10 November 2005 (UTC)

Look at [1] and at [2] to see that the Serbian Party had existed. The Croatian parties are all from the XX century (mostly) HolyRomanEmperor 19:01, 10 November 2005 (UTC)

In 1890 it won the municipal elections over the Municipality of Dubrovnik [3] HolyRomanEmperor 19:03, 10 November 2005 (UTC)

In the XX the Serbian Party gets 15 and a croatian one also 15 seats. HolyRomanEmperor 19:07, 10 November 2005 (UTC)

in 1912 Imperial Council elections (who will to to the Emperor's council) the Serbian Party sent two representatives, while the other four belonged to the pravaši. HolyRomanEmperor 19:10, 10 November 2005 (UTC)

Rafo Pucić of the National Party in Dubrovnik was the mazor five times (1869, 1872, 1875, 1882, 1884) If you are really interested in The House of Pozza (Pucić), one of the five noble Serb families in Dubrovnik, I suggest you visit this: [5] HolyRomanEmperor 19:14, 10 November 2005 (UTC)

Greeks in Hungary[edit]

You're right, there should be an article about Greeks and other minorities in Hungary, but it would need research (since I don't know this much about this subject) and I don't have much time for that now :) The only one of your questions that I can answer right now is about the church; it has been definitely used for more than 100 years before the Communist refugees arrived, since it was built in the late 18th century.

I'll write the article about the Greek village soon, if I remember well, HuWiki already has an article about it. regards, Alensha 20:04, 10 November 2005 (UTC)

knez Apolonije.... knez Apolonije... hmm... could you be a little more specific? HolyRomanEmperor 22:13, 12 November 2005 (UTC)

...and why not add at least the Serbian adjective? He was an extreme Serbian nationalist... HolyRomanEmperor 22:17, 12 November 2005 (UTC)

Yeah, but I really don't have the time to use it right now (ICQ) And I am experiencing some technical problems (low connection) so I won't write the article for some time. As for knez Apolonije, sorry mate, I hear that name for the first time in my life. HolyRomanEmperor 22:40, 12 November 2005 (UTC)

I am starting Zorsines, Varivode, Medo Pucić, Matija Ban and Ćojluk. Currently, I am currently running edits on Rudjer Boskovic, Rascia, Zahumlje, Travunia, Pagania and also somehwat on Bosnia, the Military Frontier and the Republic of Dubrovnik. HolyRomanEmperor 22:58, 12 November 2005 (UTC)

Yeah, it's because nothing more can be said about Zorsines (except a weak description of the Serbi tribe which I am digging) My birthplace is Karlovac. HolyRomanEmperor 23:09, 12 November 2005 (UTC)

It's my grandparents' village; my mother's birthplace and the village that I visit every summer. :) HolyRomanEmperor 18:47, 13 November 2005 (UTC)

You are free to take over Medo Pucich if you can... Can you? ~~

Ja sam pravoslavni Čovjek... HolyRomanEmperor 19:29, 13 November 2005 (UTC)

Because I believe that nations are non-existant and that one should receive a national adjective only when he or her is deeply attached to a "nation" (no matter of his/her ethnicity) HolyRomanEmperor 20:34, 14 November 2005 (UTC)

Penkala was a Dutch-Pole. But he was a Croat by nationality. Ivo Andrić -- the same theory -- a Serb. Do you agree with me? HolyRomanEmperor 16:10, 15 November 2005 (UTC)

And (if we are already going along this fictionous "ethnicity") anyone claiming that Serbs, Montenegrins, Bosniaks, Croats and Muslims are not ethnicly connected (or don't speak the same language) bears less knowledge about this world than a frog. Don't you agree? HolyRomanEmperor 16:21, 15 November 2005 (UTC)

Beloiannisz[edit]

I'll try to expand the article but the Hungarian one is not much longer (maybe it seems longer because of the pictures and because Hungarian words in average are longer than English ones). There were a few specific expressions I couldn't translate, and I didn't add the names of the neighboring villages etc., because I didn't think it says anything to the average non-Hungarian user :) but the English article basically has the same info the Hungarian article has. I'm still waiting for the uploader of the pictures to specify under which licence are they available, because he forgot to mention it on the picture description pages.

Image Tagging Image:Jarun.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Jarun.jpg. I notice the image page currently doesn't specify who created the image, so the copyright status is therefore unclear. If you have not created the image yourself then you need to argue that we have the right to use the image on Wikipedia (see copyright tagging below). If you have not created the image yourself then you should also specify where you found it, i.e., in most cases link to the website where you got it, and the terms of use for content from that page.

If the image also doesn't have a copyright tag then you must also add one. If you created/took the picture then you can use {{gfdl}} to release it under the GFDL. If you can claim fair use use {{fairuse}}. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other images, please check that you have specified their source and copyright tagged them, too. You can find a list of image pages you have edited by going to "Your contributions" from your user page and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any unsourced and untagged images will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thanks so much. --Agnte 21:30, 19 November 2005 (UTC)

YOu need to insert {{fairusein|ARTICLE NAME}} on the image page. more importantly, you need to specify the source (where you found it)

You wanted articles created by me? Here: Duklja, Zeta (state), Jovan Vladimir, Stefan Voislav, Mihailo Voislav and [en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Mihailo.jpg]. I hope that you don't mins that these are all Serbian- and Montenegrin- orientated; but don't think that I have forgotten to put the Croatian history into Duklja. It contains very little now, but it's well underway. You could give a hand if you'd like! HolyRomanEmperor 14:57, 26 November 2005 (UTC)

Duklja and Zeta aren't my articles, but 90% of the info there is mine :))) Zeta is coming right up. The other three articles are just copy-edits, I will deal with them when I have time. Your articls seem fine to me. HolyRomanEmperor 22:37, 13 December 2005 (UTC)

Most definately the Molise Slavic and Lastovo. Additionally, the sources that I used for Lika are moslty from Serbia and Montenegro; and Elephantus already judged the article to be a Greater Serbian propaganda page. I was amazed when I heard "very good" :))) HolyRomanEmperor 22:59, 13 December 2005 (UTC)

According to the Nemanjić annals, Lastovo was given (gifted) to the Ragusian Republic in 1252 by King Stefan Uroš I of the Serbs. He besieged Dubrovnik, and won the war. For forgiveness he vouched that there will be eternal peace between Rascia and Dubrovnik forever; agreed that the Nemanjics will not keep a navy (but Dubrovnik will serve them instead) and gave the island of Lastovo. HolyRomanEmperor 23:26, 13 December 2005 (UTC)

Do you want me to look up for a source for that? HolyRomanEmperor 23:55, 13 December 2005 (UTC)

By the way, about that "Srb" part, I disagee that you put it; unless you have some very concrete strong sources; the page is on the watch list of some nationalists... HolyRomanEmperor 09:53, 14 December 2005 (UTC)

The King put the final point on the decision that might have went as far as within the walls of Dubrovnik (in other words, Urosh, roughly said, approved the territorial transition) And just when he needed something to make Dubrovnik forgive him. HolyRomanEmperor 21:15, 14 December 2005 (UTC)

His realm was Panonija a. k. a. Posavska Hrvatska. He ruled many Slavic nations (roughly comprising current Croats and Serbs, also trying to extend influence over the Slovenes): Panonians, Serbs, Timockians, Caranthinians; tried to include Guduscans and others...

"Vandalism"[edit]

If you're going to try and get me banned, at least do it right. "Wait to see if the vandalism continues. Only add users to the list who continue to vandalize after being warned."[13]. I guess you couldn't wait to see if I would continue my "vandalism". No matter. Your mistake has been noted. Asim Led 20:00, 21 December 2005 (UTC)

It was an accident. I was reverting two similar changes on "Cazin" and "Prijedor" by the same user. I thought I had copied the text from the previous version of Prijedor, but I guess I accidently forgot so when I hit "paste" it just replaced the text with the one from the "Cazin" article. An honest mistake.

Википедијама се пише истим језиком, јер су босански, хрватски и српски исти. Уопште није битно како се зове ова Википедије, већ је битна њена мисија, а то је да докаже бесмисао 4 Википедије на истом језику. Дугорочан је план да једног дана бот чланке са све три Википедије пребаци на ову.

Re: Croat Canuck[edit]

Well that's great that you want to come to Canada. It is a great country from what I've seen in my little corner of it. I am actually not from Croatia, although my father was born there. It was the best user name I could think of on the spot. Croat Canuck 22:02, 24 December 2005 (UTC)

I don't know the village name, and I can't find out at the current moment because he's out of town. Fergus, Ontario the town I live in is north of K-W. I know its not proportional, but the part I live in is considered central Ontario. I'd prefer not to disclose my last name, also, family policy. ha, that sounds so artificial.

sh Wikipedia[edit]

Izvini što ti sad odgovaram. Nisam baš najbolje shvatio tvoj predlog za nove standarde... Ipak, nekakvi novi standardi se ne mogu propistivati. Tačno se zna šta je pravilno a šta nepravilno. Na toj Wikipediji moguće je pisati ili na ćirilici ili na latinici bilo kojim izgovorom (ijekavica ili ekavica). To je zapravo srpskohrvatski jezik koji prepoznaje sve ovo što sam ti naprojao. Ne možemo uvoditi nekakva andergraund pravila, kada to nije u skladu sa principima Wikipedije. --M. Pokrajac 00:53, 25 December 2005 (UTC)

Naravno! To je jedna jako specificna Wikipedia (vrlo alternativna). Koliko god da je specifiča, ona je i logična jer su srpski, hrvatski i bosanski jezici isti. Međutim, nikako se ne mogu složiti s tim da se uvede samo latinica i da se članci pišu iskljulivo ijekavicom. Naprosto, tamo se piše kako se želi! I nije bitno ako više ima članaka koji su na latinici, odnosno ako su napisani hrvatskom jezičkom formom. --M. Pokrajac 01:03, 25 December 2005 (UTC)

Možeš pisati pravopisom srpskohrvatskog jezika (hrvatskog ili srpskog). --M. Pokrajac 01:08, 25 December 2005 (UTC)

Hm. Pa voleo bi da vidim nacrt tog pravopisa, ako postoji. --M. Pokrajac 01:13, 25 December 2005 (UTC)

Nije problem u mojoj replici, već u vremenu. Tvoj predlog je za mene ne prihvatljiv, jer je se kosi sa osnovnim načelima pravopisa srpskog ili hrvatskog jezika. Možda predlog lepo zvuči na prvi pogled, ali jednostavno, ako se tako nešto dogodi, to bi bio presedan na Wikipediji. Možda ne bi bilo loše da razmeniš mišljenja sa nekim lingvistom - stručnjakom za južnoslovenske jezike. Preporučujem ti da se obratiš predsedniku Wikimedije za SCG Milošu koji je stručan po ovom pitanju. On će ti reći da li je tvoj predlog realan i da li je izvodljiv. --M. Pokrajac 15:04, 26 December 2005 (UTC)

Koristim. Pretraži pod ****, sad sam on-line. Miloš je sa filološkog fakulteta i odlično poznaje strukturu jezika. --M. Pokrajac 15:36, 26 December 2005 (UTC)

Nije bitno kako vi bezveznjaci nazivate jezike kojima pričate!!!! Jezik je živa stvar i mjenja se bez utjecaja samozvanih intelektualaca kakvi ste vi!!!! Sama činjenica da smo se konačno razdvojili jedni od drugih će utjecati na razvoj jezika unutar novo nastalih nacionalnih političkih tvorevina. Tako će se konačno bošnjački, slovenski, crnogorski, makedonski i albasnki jezici koji su iz ovoga ili onoga razloga bili potisnuti u drugi plan radi lažnog bratstva i jedinstva konačno moći samostalno razvijati. Srpsko-hrvatski nikada nije postojao, niti će ikada. To je mutacija izmišljena u glavama partijaša, koji su si umislili da jednim potezoma pera mogu stvarati ili ukidati nacije i jezike. Nikada nitko nitu u Hrvatskoj niti u Srbiji nije u praksi koristio taj 'jezik'

Jezik je jedno; povijest je drugo[edit]

Slušajte Luka. Nemam ništa protiv Vašeg jezika na engleskoj Wikipediji. Govorite vi svojim srpskohravtskim jezikom koliko i gdje hoćete, to je Vaša sloboda. Ali nemojte u hrvatsku, nikakvu srpsko-hrvatsku srednjovjekovnu povijest uplitati jugoslavenske i srpskohrvatske kategorije. Nemojte misliti da je znanje koje ste stekli u ex-Yougoslavie ispravno znanje. Do šesnaestog stoljeća, na prostoru počev od lijeve obale Vrbasa nema ni Srba ni Bošnjaka, samo Hrvati i tako taj period treba promatrati. Mađari su samo bili vrhovna vlast, ali nikad ondje nisu živjeli ni uredovali. A onda su bili katolički Vlasi koji su se kasnije pomiješali sa Vlasima iz Srbije i Grčke, te još kasnije sa Srbima, i to su današnji Srbi u tim dijelovima suvremene Bosne. Ove druge Vlahe i Srbe dovodili su Turci, osim onih koje je doseljavao u Dalmaciji knez Mladen Šubić, koji je bio zet cara Dušana. Ali to su malobrojhne sskupine. Mnogo toga je skriveno, izbrisano, iskrivljeno. Ne mislim da ste zlonamjerni, ali niste dovoljno obaviješteni. Srdačan pozdrav, Tomislav Dretar (zaboravio sam se prijaviti, pa neće moj potpis izići).--213.49.211.99 12:36, 1 January 2006 (UTC)

Nm; I think that it's a little too early to nominate Lastovo... Guduscani su bili narod izmedju Panonije i Dalmacije (ali unutar Dalmacije). Titule dalmatinskih vladara su bili "___ Guduscana".

SH[edit]

First let me wish you all the best in 2006!

My subject refers to the language you inserted in my babel infobox, on my user page. All debates about similarities and differences between Serbian and Croatian languages set aside; I don't appreciate anyone changing my personal information without any consultation or approval. As you could see on my talk page, I was already suggested to put SH on the language list - this is a request that I would've seriously considered. However, simply editing which languages I can speak is not something you should be proud of, especially having in mind that nowadays Serbian, Croatian and Bosnian are internationally recognized as distinctive and different languages, though I personally find that absurd.

Odgovor od Boris Živ[edit]

Hej! Ma ne izbjegavam te! Dakle, nemam pojma odakle mi je točno stari. Neko selo kraj Zadra. Tamo više nitko ne živi. Malo je u planinama. Sva rodbina tamo mi je u Splitu i Šibeniku. Ja se držim Slavonije i ravnice. Pozdrav! Boris Živ

Ma odakle ti te gluposti. Tata je iz sela Sapina Doca (kraj Rogoznice i Primoštena), blizu mora. Kakva Bukovica?!! I da sam srbin?! Pa da jesam rekao bih, ali nisam. Cijeli život živim u Našicama, oba su mi roditelja hrvati. Zapravo, kada su srbi osvojili Vukovar (kraj 1991) poslali su me roditelji na nekoliko mjeseci u Zagreb kod tete jer se nije znalo kako će sve završiti. Boris Živ

Spominjem iz razloga što smatram da user page je nešto što treba ostaviti korisniku da piše o sebi kako on to sam misli. Ipak treba poštovati tuđe ja, u ovom slučaju moje ja, pa ako pišem nešto lično o sebi to ne ispravljati.

Namerno ili slučajno si napisao 15 godina, 1990-91. Slažem se sa tvojom idejom u vezi jezika (hrvatskosrpskog ili srpskohrvatskog) ali sve se menja i ko se bolje prilagodi bolje prolazi u životu. Recimo, ako ja na vikipediji ću pisati o jednom mestu odakle su došli moji pretci. To mesto se oduvjek zvalo Andrasfalva (od osnivanja), ali se sada zove Mánueti, pošto se nalazi u Rumuniji. Sekelji otišli, rumunji došli i ako ja napišem na stranici Andrašfalva i ne dodam rumunjsko sadašnje ime, kao naslov, prvo što će se desiti da me optuže (verovatno rumunji) da sam nacionalista, hoću da ukradem ne znam ti ja šta i tako dalje. Tako je i sa jezikom. Ne možeš hrvatu rijeći da priča srpski ili srpskohrvatski i obrnuto, srbinu da govori hrvatskosrpski ili neku kombinaciju jer će odmah se pobuniti i navjesti milijun razloga protiv. Pa pošto je ovo enciklopedija smatram da u mom slučaju ne treba da stoji da mi je maternji srpskohrvatski, što i nije već da se služim sa njim kao maternjim. Etoako sam malo razjasnio šta su moji motivi. Ovo sam se trudio da pišem srpkohrvatski.--László 15:30, 18 January 2006 (UTC)

Your article of Lastovo needs better referencing[edit]

Hi Luka. Look how the article 'Black Hole' is referenced and do the same for your article, since I know too little about those books. --GTubio 08:41, 1 February 2006 (UTC)

You beat me to it[edit]

I finally started working on a map of Lostovo after leaving a comment at Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Lastovo, only to find you beat me to it! Oh well, I uploaded it anyway at image:Lastovo.svg. It's an svg so very easy to modify (in case you find a use for it).

Also, I think you need to provide source information for Image:Lastovokarta.jpg. --Duk 17:19, 9 February 2006 (UTC)

Serbian propaganda on article Lastovo[edit]

In response to a few issues I have that need resolution.

First, Lastovo is mentioned expressly in DAI - Chapter 26 Of the Pagani /Neretvani " There are other islands not in the possession of these same pagani: Choara, the island of Ies (Vis), the island of Lastobon (Lastovo).

Constatint Prophyrogenitus -- DAI GV Moravcsik (translation) p.165

Secondly, it is quite clearly and generally accepted that Lastovo entered the republic of Dubrovnik of its own free will in 1252 -- this is the generally accepted history. A simple google check would make this clear to you. You should also quote the direct source of this statement.

Thirdly, this theory of Serbianism on the island does not hold any water as by even Vuk draskovic's definition of serbian language and the defintion of serbian culture he specifically excludes the cakavski dialect which Lastovo speaks.

Fourthly, culturally there are no specific signs of serbian culture on the island such as the slava or anything else

Finally, on etymological grounds the bay east of Skrivena Luka on the southern side of the island has been known and recorded as uvala Hrvaska since antiquity.

I would just like to say that I have nothing against Serbian people or culture, but in this instance it is wrong to assert this here as it is clearly wrong and inaccurate.


Actually, the border of the Serbian Kingdom in the 13th century was not Neretva. It was Cetina. :) --HolyRomanEmperor 15:56, 11 February 2006 (UTC)



That has nothing to do with this island.


To Annon: Register, and then make hard arguements.

P. S. there were no non-shtokavci on Lastovo before the Ottoman period (migrations from Croatia brought the linguistic change with them). --HolyRomanEmperor 16:12, 12 February 2006 (UTC)

Well I want claim that they didnt spoke Chakavian before but if they spoke Chakavian that doesnt have to mean that they were not part of Serbian kingdom. Luka Jačov 16:35, 12 February 2006 (UTC)

Sorry but...[edit]

Hello!

Sorry but I'm not very happy that you changed my page. I mean... I know that we are all "free" of changing almost everything and so on on this site, but I think that there should be some respect towards what one decides to put on his/her page. I welcome everybody who wants to change my page for some joke and so on. But what you did, from my point of view, comes out from some political reasons. And I must say that I try not to stay on just one side (don't rellay know how to explain), but I really thought a lot before deciding that I'm a Hr-native speaker. I didn't know whether I should write sh, hr or bs, but later on I thought that I cannot write Cyrillic (unfortunately) and don't know very well what belongs to the Croatian and what to the Serbian languages. So I decided that the best thing to do was to put Hr and perhaps sh-3 and bs-3, but not sh. This is a decision that I took and it is about myself and I think I don't harm anyone with it. Hence, I don't understand why you felt the need for changing it in sh. I think that I can share some opinions and reasons that I think you changed my page for, but I think that there should be respect towards what one decides to be, or to speak or to do (if he/she doesn't harm anybody). So, please if you have some political ideas (that are different from mine... as I think in this case is) tell me and we can speak, but leave people express their own feelings without trying to impose yours.

Thank you! :) --Ivana 01:48, 14 February 2006 (UTC)

ok[edit]

Ok, mozda i imas pravo... To su razlicita misljenja... Ali bas me ljuti kad ljudi neke stvari forsiraju i najvise me naljutilo to sto si mijenjao stranicu bez da me pitas sto ja o tome mislim. Da li je Hr ili Sh ili bilo sto drugo mene ne zanima. Samo zelim da se postuju moja misljenja kao sto ja postujem druge. Mislim samo da to nije u redu. A druga je prica da li je "hrvatski jedna standardna forma srpskohrvatskog a sam srpskohrvatski zajednički naziv za 4 dijalekta i 3 standardne forme". Da si mi to rekao prije ok... postoji "Dicussion page" za takve stvari. Ali za sada zelim ostaviti hr-n, zato sto se ja tako osijecam. Ja isto ne volim (mislim da i ti ne volis) to sto politicari i drugi uvijek "govore" da hr, sh i bs su 3 razlicita jezika, ali se ja osijecam hr-n... u biti mi to nije niti toliko vazno.

The naming convention you dislike got quite standardized for Czech towns and cities (and possibly in other articles but I concentrate on Czech places). Pavel Vozenilek 00:40, 16 February 2006 (UTC)

I began adding "-native language" to locality articles that I created for Poland, Romania, Slovakia, and the Czech Republic. Since I was always adding the German and Hungarian names for towns in Slovakia, and therefore links to German language and Hungarian language, I began adding links to Slovak language, as it (usually) is the language the town's inhabitants speak. Most contributors have removed "-native language" as they believe it gratuitous, and I've since stopped adding it to articles. I suggested it at Wikipedia talk:Naming conventions/Geographic names, but no one responded... Olessi 01:30, 16 February 2006 (UTC)

Renaming the article[edit]

Opinions are one thing, official Wikipedia policy is another. I followed the official policy step by step in order to rename the article. I also explained on the talk page what other users can do to change the decision after the voting. Maybe you haven't seen the explanation, so I'm copying it here:

The voting is hereby closed after the period of 5 days, in accordance with the policy of Wikipedia:Requested moves, where the voting request was placed on 17 February 2006. A clear consensus for the page move has not been reached. However, the policy of requested moves allowes a page to be moved if 60% or more users support the moving of the article. There have been 10 "Support" votes and 3 "Oppose" votes, which makes for a 76% majority, meeting even the supermajority principle. Therefore, I will now move the page to Molise Croatian dialect. This does not mean that the issue is closed. Users opposing this decision can use the channels provided by the Wikipedia policy, such as consulting a third party, filing a request for comment (on the article in question), and requesting mediation. The article may not be moved to other names than Molise Croatian dialect without following the official policy steps. I have followed the official policy to the letter and expect others to do the same. --Zmaj 09:05, 22 February 2006 (UTC)

I didn't rename the article. It was done by an independent administrator of the English Wikipedia after we all voted, including yourself. It was all done according to the Wikipedia policy. Please adhere to that policy and follow the appropriate steps for opposing the decision that was made. --Zmaj 14:47, 22 February 2006 (UTC)

My Last Name[edit]

Hey Luka, when we talked last you were asking for my last name, and I've decided it really has little relevance whether its put online or not. Now my last name is Brnjas, Canadianized it sounds Burn-jis... However in Croatian I'm almost positive that it sounds as Burn-yas, with the j sounding as a y in English. Now I have a question for you as well because I've always wondered about the Croatian spelling of it. I read up on the Croatian language article, and I'm just wondering if the spelling stays Brnjas in Croatian? Thanks. Flag of Croatia.svg Croat Canuck Flag of Canada.svg 04:10, 25 February 2006 (UTC)

WikiProject Croatia[edit]

Hi. I noticed that you've joined WikiProject Croatia. Thanks for the interest. The project isn't quite ready yet (that is why I haven't categorized it for the time being), but it should be ready to go soon.

I appreciate the comment about your work on Karlovac County. That can be the first part of the improvement drive if you wish, my selection of the Dubrovnik-Neretva County was rather arbitrary anyway. The "To Do List" isn't my first concern at the moment. It's really just a place to collaborate on sections. Before that can happen, I'm gonna have to fix up the project page a little bit more to actually be able toattract some collaborators. Hopefully the project will have some success.

Macedonia[edit]

Hi, don't revert again on Republic of Macedonia or you'll have violated the 3RR and will be blocked. Also, look at the 1911 Ottoman Census, there were a lot of Greeks in Macedonia [16] and according to the 2005 Ethnologue, one of the countries in which Greek is spoken is Macedonia [17] - so Greek is spoken in Macedonia (According to them, Greek is spoken in Greece and is also spoken in Albania, Armenia, Australia, Austria, Bahamas, Bulgaria, Canada, Congo, Cyprus, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Djibouti, Egypt, France, Georgia, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Macedonia, Malawi, Paraguay, Poland, Romania, Russia (Europe), Sierra Leone, South Africa, Sweden, Tunisia, Turkey (Europe), Ukraine, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, USA.). You also called my edit "nationalist" - don't do that, it's a personal attack and you could get blocked. Regards, --Latinus 23:57, 25 March 2006 (UTC)

You must stop violating it now, or you'll violate the 3RR. There is no census data as the R. Macedonia doesn't recgnise a Greek minority (only Albanians and Aromanians). According to Ethnologue, in 2005 (last year), Greek was spoken in Macedonia - therefore, it is sourced and you should not remove it. I'll report you (inter alia for the 3RR and you'll get blocked) if you do it again. --Latinus 00:24, 26 March 2006 (UTC)
Latinus, Your Otoman census data is unreliable. And you falsely claim that Macedonia doesn't recognise minorities. The fact that they are not mentioned is due to their insignificant number. We simply cannot mention every 5-6 members of every nationality in Macedonia. That also aplies to the article. And there is no international doubt about the Macedonian census results. So I support Luka for removing it. It's Greece wich doesn't recognise minorities and is raighteously criticised by the international community for not respecting human and minority rights. Sooner rather than later Greece will have to face the facts (with the help of international pressure ofcourse) --Realek 01:35, 26 March 2006 (UTC)
So that means you won't object to me removing the "Macedonians" from the Greece article as there is no census data saying that there are? I think I will, if it is removed again. --Latinus 11:32, 26 March 2006 (UTC)
The difference between the situations in Greece and Macedonia is that Greek census data is disputet internationaly and Macedonian is not (Except maybe by you). So the answer to your question is - yes, I would object! But what's more important is that many neutral observers would object. --Realek 14:03, 26 March 2006 (UTC)
Evidence? --Latinus 14:09, 26 March 2006 (UTC)
You'll have to be more spcific - evidece for what exactly? --Realek 14:16, 26 March 2006 (UTC)
Evidence to support your claim that Greek censi (i.e. EU censi) are questionable - of course I very much doubt that what you're saying has any merit. --Latinus 14:17, 26 March 2006 (UTC)
Noooo, not EU but spceifically Greek Census. I think it's pretty obvious that greek census data is false since it claims 98% are greeks - in a region with such a ethnic diversity. It would have been 100% greeks if greece was not forced to recognise the Turkish minority under the treaty of Laussane. But you want "evidence", so check out what the the Greek Helsinki have been saying for years on the matter. Or is that too a communist propaganda??? --Realek 14:51, 26 March 2006 (UTC)
No weblinks, just your word, which I am not obliged to believe ;-) You have provided no evidence, therefore your assertions are moot. YOu have to learn that your opinion counts for nothing. I think I'll seriously consider removing the "Macedonians" from the Greece ard related articles. Double standards cannot be tolerated... --Latinus 15:34, 26 March 2006 (UTC)
I'm pretty sure you knew how to find the Greek Helsinkisite, but nevermind - here it is [www.greekhelsinki.gr]. I dont mind prooving even obvious things to you. You even ask me to proove and source my nationality. That speaks volumes about you. Now, about your "seriously consideration" for removing Macedonians - let's see how it goes if you decide to do it ;) --Realek 15:43, 26 March 2006 (UTC)
Give me a specific quote that says that Greek censi are unreliable. I can't find it anywhere. You can't make explosive claims and not prove it - in the same way I can say that Fyrom's censi are unreliable and not give a source ;-) --Latinus 16:02, 26 March 2006 (UTC)
What are you talking about - you ask for census data on Greeks in M, I ask for census data on Macedonians in G; there's nothing wrong with that. Do you have double standards? --Latinus 12:00, 26 March 2006 (UTC)
I think Ethnologue answers that - Greek is spoken in R. Macedonia and if you can add "Macedonians are in Greece" without census data, but are relying on other sources, why can't I add "Greeks are in R Macedonia" while relying on non-census sources. Quite simply, R. Macedonia doesn't recognise a Greek minority - you claim that Greece recognises no minorities is a lie: Greece recognises a Turkish minority in Thrace. --Latinus 12:10, 26 March 2006 (UTC)

Source [18] - and also, is there a Macedonian Orthodox Church in Greece, I don't think so. I don't know if there is a Greek church in R. Macedonia - I know they oppress the Serbian Orthodox Church and violate their human rights, so I very much doubt a Greek church would stand a chance. --Latinus 12:39, 26 March 2006 (UTC)

Read article Macedonian Orthodox Church - it says something about the SOC there. I also remember the Human Rights Watch saying something about it - gimme a minute... --Latinus 16:25, 26 March 2006 (UTC)

Here [19] and [20] - I feel so sorry for the Serbs in Fyrom... --Latinus 16:29, 26 March 2006 (UTC)

Apparently they violate all their minorities rights (according to those reports) and then have the nerve to criticise Greece and wonder why they are not in the EU - THAT'S why! --Latinus 16:36, 26 March 2006 (UTC)
Latinus, Latinus :))). Make one of your famous "tests". Search for fyrom in on the HRW site and you get 5 results. Search for abuses in Greece and you get 591 [21].
Funny thing you "respect" HRW findings when it suits you, but ignore them when it doesn't. --Realek 16:58, 26 March 2006 (UTC)
Apparently, Fyrom has it's dirty linen as well ;-) --Latinus 16:59, 26 March 2006 (UTC)
Acording to HRW - matematically speaking Greece is 118.2 worse! ;) --Realek 17:12, 26 March 2006 (UTC)
Straw man - you know very well that HRW erroneously refers to you as Macedonia. You should search for Macedonia OR Fyrom [22]. I got to tell you - until all this is remedies, the EU will not be happy... --Latinus 17:15, 26 March 2006 (UTC)
I just suggested you make one of your famous tests - you always use fyrom. And if HRW "erroneously" refers to Macedonia, maybe it's not a reliable source on Macedonia. I wasn't my intention to get in any discussions with you, because I've realised that you dont accept even the most obvious facts. I just did it to expose your double standars ;) --Realek 17:23, 26 March 2006 (UTC)
Until those human rights abuses are fixed, the EU prospects seem rather remote - the entry standards seem to have gone up since the time when Greece joined ;-) --Latinus 17:26, 26 March 2006 (UTC)
Yes it's very unfortunate how grece sliped in the EU. But it's quite fortunate that you don't get to voice your oppinion on who can join now - your thoughts on Macedonia's EU prospects will have about zero point nada impact on the decision ;) --Realek 17:32, 26 March 2006 (UTC)
Very doubtful, Greece, Cyprus and Bulgaria will all be full members by that time and all members, regardless of their domestic affairs have the right to veto – don't make up stories as you go along, it's too obvious ;-) --Latinus 17:35, 26 March 2006 (UTC)
Well, we will have to see about that. Anyway stop puting words in my mouth - I didn't mantion any countries. I just said your thoughts will have about zero point nada impact on the decision. Also don't hope too much on Bulgaria taking sides with Grece against Macedonia. Macedonia and Bulgaria have much closer and friendlier ralations that you would like to admit. Also dont forget that Bulgaria was tha first country to recognise Republic of Macedonia - under the constitutional name ofcourse ;) --Realek 17:52, 26 March 2006 (UTC)

Portuguese Colonial War[edit]

Hi Luka,

I tried to translate that sentence, but I'm Brazilian, and that's a form of Portuguese that we don't use here. In fact the way Portuguese people write (and speak) is even difficult for people from Brazil to understand. Anyway, I tried my best.

You seem to speak and understand English better than me. So, I wrote a "translation" there, right under the sentence in Portuguese, and I would like you to check if everything is okay, or even to correct it (my English is not good enough, I confess).

Hope I helped somehow.

Best regards,

Milena 16:11, 27 March 2006 (UTC)

Kosovar Turks[edit]

I happened to notice that the source you quoted in determining the Kosovo(a?) population is another wikipedia article(Kosovo). This does not count as a reliable source - Please read WP:V. The Wikipedia articles themselves are not a rigid entity(being one that any schmuck can edit - Criticism of Wikipedia). Adding to that problem is the presence of a Neutrality tag on that same wikipedia article on Kosovo. If you can quote the official census from an RELIABLE external link, your figure can be entertained. Until then, please stop vandalizing the article with your POV.

Im aware that you bear some sort of resentment against Turks that stems from past Turkish rule of the balkans, but please back up your views. I also want point out to you that Kosovar Turks suffered as well at the hands of Albanian chauvanists/nationals during the 1999 crisis. Not only were they seen as colonist/imperialist leftovers, but also as colloborators with Milosevic.

Im reverting the article to an earlier version for now. KSK 13:30, 31 March 2006 (UTC)

Ok, I jumped the gun a bit there. The reason your figures arent accepted is because they are UNSOURCED. 1981 is 1/4 a century ago. Thats way too outdated and there's likely to have been significant population growth since that time. Doesnt Serbia have a census every decade or something like that ? Why not the most recent Kosovo census ?--KSK 14:52, 31 March 2006 (UTC)
Why isnt that sort of growth possible. Since the balkan wars, Turkey's population increased by close to 8 times though admittedly a lot of it was because of ethnic cleansing directed against Turks in the balkans and later, the caucasus. Ill have a look around and see what i can come up with. These figures have to be taken with a pinch of salt though. Its difficult to pass off a hard figure for population in this case. A range in its place would do great. Btw, you might want to take a look at the Albanians article, which states that Albanians number over 2.2 million in Kosovo alone. That sounds very, very suspect. RegardsKSK 15:21, 31 March 2006 (UTC)
Obviously a news article is no match for a recent census, but it certainly trumps another wikipedia article, (which is in constant fluc with a neutrality tag to boot). Im searching for sources right now, but all that seems to show up is some crappy medieval battle between Turks and Serbs=). And anyway, we arent setting the 50000 figure in stone. Its just the higher end estimate. -KSK 15:33, 31 March 2006 (UTC)
Here are serbian nationalist sites that say over 50,000 [23] [24]. Salon article [25]. Another news site [26] (Note the context though) KSK 15:42, 31 March 2006 (UTC)
I think those are more than enough. Even cetniks(who absolutely hate Turks) admit that 50000 Turks live in Kosovo. Salon and pacificnews are right up there in terms of reliability.KSK 15:53, 31 March 2006 (UTC)

Lastovo[edit]

Hi Luka, Thanks for that i spent a few hours last night going through all my books on Lastovo :) I think submitting the article for featured candidate in its current form is good, and thanks for nominating it. I wanted to add some extra information on econonomy, but i dont think its in a good format, maybe you could help as i wouldnt the best place to do it or the best way to format it?

-- Economy --

  • Tourism - Nature tourism, Scuba-Diving (underwater wrecks and rich underwater wildlife), great Yachting facilities makes it popular outpost in the Adriatic for yachters. This all contribute to a small but thriving tourism industry
  • Agriculture - Olives, Wines (famous Dalmatian wine called Lastovo Maraština)
  • Fishing and fish processing industry

Lastly the Map you re-included is fine, i just dont like it becuase of the markings. The reason i included the other one is that it showed the group of islands called Lastovnjaci on the east side. But the big problem i have with the current photo is that it is marked by Diving Sites from the Diving Centre (Ronilacki Raj) around Prezba and the west side (see the little squares). This shouldnt be on the map. Anyway i'm glad you liked the Article :) Uvouvo 23:14, 1 April 2006 (UTC)

Bessarabian Bulgarians and Gagauzia[edit]

Well, the article is a translation of the original one in Bulgarian by Anton Keckarov. I now noticed there's a paragraph in Bulgarian about the Bessarabian Bulgarians in the later years of the Soviet Union that is either new or I've left it out during the translation. I'll probably come to translate it too. Unfortunately, I doubt much reliable information about the Bessarabian Bulgarians and their connection to Gagauzia is available online — you see, I even met expressions like "Bulgarian Gagauzians" and "Gagauzians — the other Bessarabian Bulgarian" after a brief Google search, although the two peoples are not really related.

Serbs speak serbian (unbelievable, isn't it?)[edit]

Hi,

Thank You for taking care od croatia-related articles, like Serbs of Croatia. I appreciate your wish to push your ideas, but, please, get informed before reverting changes that You don't like. After all, truth should be in the first place here, isn't it?

Anyway, thanks to your insisting, a found data on croatian census 2001 and found that just 2.054 people speak "Croato-Serban" and 4.961 Serbo-Croatian (totla 7000, so, if they are all Serbs, that shold mean less than 3.5% od Serbs), and 44.629 speak Serbian. Since over 200 000 people declared on census to be Serbs, I guess that mean that many of them speak croatian. I believe this should be investigated in more detail. Since You care so musch about this, maybe You could do it. But, please, use arguments, don't just write what You like.

And, by the way, don't call me an idiot, someone might think that truth makes You nervous ;). Also, that's against wikipedia policy.

Regards, --Ante Perkovic 10:46, 10 May 2006 (UTC)

Please, DO NOT delete reference that proves You wrong. That is so not wiki. --Ante Perkovic


You said:

As said different names for same thing. Mentioning this would only creat confusion among readers impliying that they speak more or less different idioms which is not true. Thats why term Serbo-Croatian is best to use especially cos we are talking about dialectology. Luka Jačov 11:02, 10 May 2006 (UTC)

Man, stick to one standard, don't change it! Just few hours ago, You wrote ([http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Serbo-Croatian_language&diff=prev&oldid=52453699 here) U call it your way but dont deny it to others). So I just proved that Serbs of Croatia call their language serbian. I believe it should be enough here to just paraphrase you:
U call language os Serbs of Croatia your way but don't deny them to call it croatian, serbian or whatever they want. But, You must admit, they (96.5% of them) do not cal it Srebo-croatian nor croato-serbian.
So, is this issue solved or You gonna revert my data again? --Ante Perkovic 11:11, 10 May 2006 (UTC)


Ha, ha, Hey Luka, you can see now what kind of IDIOTS, like the one writing above ( Ante P.) are writing all kinds of trash throughout this popular encyclopedia. They're either sick in their brain, either blind-evil nationalists, whose ideas are wired to everyone normal on this world. Their rotten brains don't want to accept the simple truth that SERBOCROATIAN is ONE LANGUAGE, and there's no languages like Croatian, Serbian or Bosnian, which are just dialects of the Serbocroatian, (even if some of them have recently got their 'standards'status from political reasons). It is soo stupid what that small group of croatian nationalist-editors write on croatian (and sometimes bosnian) wikipedia, so that all serious people who read that are probably laughing outloud. Dear Luka, don't pay attention on those morons' cries and just continue your precious work on the wikipedia pages, correcting lies and bad intentions wherever it's needed. You know the truth the best and the truth is over all. Best Regards and all the best from another supporter of the truth.

Hi, I see that You list your self among Inclusionist Wikipedian. Looks like You don't really understand the meaning of "Inclusionist".

Political preference?[edit]

Could You please explain what You mena by we r talking about dialectology not political preferences. Are You impling that (in census 2001) people calling their language "Croatian" is just a political statement againt former Yugoslavia? --Ante Perkovic 10:32, 12 May 2006 (UTC)

Žumberak[edit]

Hi, Luka! I'd like to ask you if the Croatian name Žumberak is actually a Slavic rendering of the German Schielberg (the German name of the mountain). Such names don't look in any way etymologically familiar to me (but phonetically do), and I'm interested in the way Slavic people "hear" the German toponyms. Another very similar example could be Ružomberok in Slovakia, this one's from Rosenberg, and I believe there are many other in Slovenia (Brunšvik — from Braunschweig?; Majšperk and Žužemberk also extremely likely, and Šentjernej also sounds like a rendering of a certain saint's name in German, but I'm not sure).

Anyway, are such folk-German-derived names (what you hear is what you have :)) generally common in Slovenia and Croatia and do people usually know they're from German? How do they sound to you? Thanks and sorry if my question's a bit unusual and hard to understand. Todor Bozhinov  11:10, 25 May 2006 (UTC)

Hi,

You need to give some proof for Tudjman's aledged plans if you want your part of text to stay where you put it. I put "verify" template in order to remind you of this. If you don't have time (or can't find reliable reference) to prove this, it will be deleted.

Please, try to play by the rules (WP:CITE, WP:Verify). --Ante Perkovic 07:21, 5 June 2006 (UTC)


Hey, what is your problem??? Do you think it's right just to put unsourced claims to wikipedia and even remove my legitimate request to prove it?
Do you think this is your private wikipedia??? --Ante Perkovic

Read Tudjman's book?... This is hillarious!
So, you think it is better to have few millions wikipedia readers individually learning croatian and reading Tudjman's book that to have you translating a few pages of it? Do you really think that is the way wikipedia is functioning??? I can't believe that you actually wrote that I should read a book instead you citing sources. Unbelievable !!! --Ante Perkovic 07:56, 5 June 2006 (UTC)

Let me explain some basics here. You should prove your accusations by citing sources. Until then, it is just a slender.
You obviously think that we should trust what you said until someone read entire book and proves that there is no such a thing in the book!!!!
So, I will delete your text until you verify your conspiracy theory. --Ante Perkovic 09:38, 5 June 2006 (UTC)
There are the rules. If You don't know them, try reading!
Ante Perkovic 09:38, 5 June 2006 (UTC)

Sorry, but your word is not enough here, especcialy since You have a history of ignoring valid references if they don't fit your agenda. You will have to translate a few sentences from the book if you want your text to stay. I'll give you some time to do that. --Ante Perkovic 09:53, 6 June 2006 (UTC)

I made some additional research and found zero sources on internet where Tudjman's book is mentioned in the same context with Janjevci or Kosovo.

So, if Tudjman really wrote this plan in a book, how come that entire internet community of this planet is anaware of that??? You must admit that this is a good reason to suspect that you somehow get confused when writting the text on Janjevci.

I believe it is reasonable to ask from You to leave this text on talk page until You give some additional explanation.

Pease comment this at Talk:Janjevci#Moved here until proper source given.

I need some explanation of your edit[edit]

Hi,

I found some of your edits quite strange. An example is this.

The text you deleted is this:

According to the Croatian census 2001 [30], most Serbs of Croatia declared that they speak Croatian. The opinion on the diaspora population has not been polled and the data for them is unavailable.

So, why did you deleted it?

Let me brake this into more understandable pieces:

  1. Did croatian census took place in 2001? Yes.
  2. Did most Serbs declared their language as croatian. Yes.
  3. Is diaspora sentence correct? Yes.

I'm really buffled. Do you find some of this text wrong or what? If yes, which part? Please, enlighten me.

Regards, Ante Perkovic 13:25, 8 June 2006 (UTC)

Instead of answering this remarkably simple question, you decided to ignore it and just to revert the article one more time. I can only conclude that you run out of arguments. --Ante Perkovic 17:42, 9 June 2006 (UTC)

  1. I am still waiting for you to tell me are these information you deleted actualy false and if yes, which part.
  2. You think that census results should be censored because they will confuse readers???? --Ante Perkovic 18:01, 9 June 2006 (UTC)

Autogol[edit]

Onaj potez od prije para dana ti je bio vrlo podal, tel toliko da znaš. To ti nije bio pravi način.

No, ljudi su te prokužili, tako da si s ovim zabio sebi poprilično nezgodan autogol.

Bolje ti je da se počneš ponašat ko odrasla osoba, a ne da maltretiraš svih nas sa svojim guranjem jugonostalgičnih ideja pod svaku cijenu. Da si pametan, moga si popustit na mjestu gdje sigurno gubiš i pokušat progurat ideju na drugim mjestima, ali tebi je izgleda ponos jači od razuma.

Bilo bi dobro da se malo smiriš, da nađeš malo mira u sebi, a ne da ovako svi gubimo vrijeme zato jer ti ne žališ popustit, pa makar te to koštalo totlanog gubitka ugleda. Ja ti ne želim zlo niti te ne želim tjerat odavde, ali ni ja ni itko drugi ovdje neće dopustit da se pravi budala od njega. Pa ti razmisli...

Ugled[edit]

Ne znam kolko pratiš nogomet, ali je vrijeme svjetskog prvenstva i baš mi je dobra usporedba pala na pamet. Znaš, ima jedna reprezentacija sa prilično dobrim rezultatima, ali stvarno ružnom igrom koja je često prljava. Čim uđu u šesnaesterac, fintiraju prekršaj da bi dobili penal, kad vode onda odugovlače sa igrom i tako.

Ide im prilično dobro rezultatski, ali neutralni navijači uglavnom navijaju protiv njih kad god igraju.

Zovu se Italija. Ako ne gledaš nogomet, pitaj ljude koji gledaju i oni će ti potvrdit.

Vjerojatno pretpostavljaš na što ciljam:

Istina je, bio si mudar prije par dana kad si isposlovao blokiranje svojih "protivnika" na temu članka o Srbima u Hrvatskoj. Igrao si po pravilima i pobijedio, ali koliko ti je to bila pametna odluka, prosudi sam.

Bez obzira kakva bila pravila Wikipedije, postoje nekakve moralne norme koje vrijede i u životu i na Wikipediji i doma i u školi i na faksu i na poslu i za stolom i u WC-u i u prometu i po ljeti i po zimi.

Teško ih je definirat, ali ih je lako prepoznat. Zapravo, lako je prepoznat kad netko odstupa od tih normi skrivajući se iza pravila.

Nitko nije savršen, ja sam daleko od toga, ali ti moram nešto reć i nadam se da nećeš to shvatit osobno. Stvarno je, u najmanju ruku, taj tvoj postupak bio "gadljiv". Nisam opće sudjelovao u editiranju članka jer nemam čvrsto mišljenje u vezi teme jezika Srba u Hrvatskoj, ali me tvoj potez skoro pozvao da zamijenim tvoje "protivnike" dok su blokirani (što bi definitivno bilo loše budući da bi onda ja editirao bez da sam upućen u temu, a to je vandalizam). Vjeruj mi, dvojim ko je u pravu u vezi te teme, ali takvi potezi kao taj tvoj su vrlo uspješna negativna samopropaganda.

Govorim ti ovo čisto da vidiš mišljenje od nekog ko ne sudjeluje. (Zapravo, slabo radim išta na Wikipediji jer sam prezauzet diplomskim i poslom, ali ću za mjesec dana bit aktivniji.)

Pozdrav.

Also Image:Fumar.jpg and Image:Kuzma.jpg.--Eloquence* 15:02, 2 July 2006 (UTC)

Claim of self-made[edit]

Let's just take one image as an example, Image:Fumar.jpg. This exact image is at:

http://www.gianfrancogervasi.it/images/fumari_small.jpg

which happens to be a website of a photographer showcasing his work. It has a modification date of August 2003, which is before the photo was uploaded. His name is not yours. Are you claiming this person is a liar and showing your work as his own? Or did you simply download this photo from the web and label it as yours even though you didn't take it?--Eloquence* 18:05, 2 July 2006 (UTC)

So you claim you took the pictures "together". I'll be happy to e-mail Gianfranco to verify this. Then let's take the next example:

Image:Kuzma.jpg is the same image as

http://www.lastovo.net/145a.jpg

Again, the modification date of the image on the site is in 2003, long before you uploaded the same image to Wikipedia. Are you also claiming that you have a connection to this website? Or how about Image:Pasadur.jpg, which is the same image (in higher quality) as http://www.lastovo-accomodation.com/slike/iz_aviona.jpg - again, how do you explain this? How and when do you claim you have taken this photo?--Eloquence* 18:10, 2 July 2006 (UTC)

Image:Pasadur.jpg was uploaded by someone else, so I have restored the license. However, the images you have uploaded appear to have been grabbed randomly from the web or scanned from paper -- or are you next going to try to tell me that you also drew this map yourself? Look, just admit that you took them from the web. Some of them may qualify as fair use, but others will have to be deleted. There's no reason to make up fake stories.--Eloquence* 18:16, 2 July 2006 (UTC)

Even if the map was "given" to you (it frankly looks more like a typical web picture), that does not mean that we can publish it under the GNU Free Documentation License. We need specific permission from the copyright holder to do so -- the GFDL allows for free and unlimited distribution, modification and commercial use. For images which are not under a free license, we have the fair use guidelines. A limited number of pictures for which we can cite a source, and which have educational relevance to an article, can be used. But the worst thing we can do is mislabel images under licenses under which they are not actually available.

Your images are more likely to be deleted if you label them GFDL but they actually aren't. For each of the photos, we need to know exactly where it is from, and why we can use it.--Eloquence* 18:23, 2 July 2006 (UTC)

'Treason'?[edit]

What treason? I feel the article needs some major improvement in order to exemplify 'our best work' and be ready for the Main Page. It's not anything personal, directed against you or anyone else, I'm just trying to help the community. The article is going to hit the Main Page anyway — but there are areas in which it has to be improved. I'm nominating it for de-featuring or anything, just trying to help (and it wouldn't have been a 'treason' even if I did nominate it for FA removal)! I understand your desire to have a Croatian article featured on the Main Page, but some of the means you've used to achieve this are unacceptable.

I'd be happy to see a great featured article on Lastovo, that's why I have reviewed it and given some suggestions — it's in the name of improvement. If that's a treason, then I'd be proud to be called a traitor, though I was disappointed by this unexpected reaction of yours. TodorBozhinov 18:28, 2 July 2006 (UTC)

Image sources[edit]

If you want to follow the correct procedure:

For each photo that you did not personally take, or the map which you did not personally draw, the copyright holder (the person who created the image) needs to give permission on the record to license it freely, ideally under something like CC-BY 2.5 (better than GFDL, which is very bad for images). So we need a permission e-mail from them that they have licensed it in this way. E-mail them and ask them for explicit permission. Copy me on this e-mail as CC. My e-mail address is moeller AT scireview DOT de.--Eloquence* 18:51, 2 July 2006 (UTC)

Verifying the authenticity is quite easy. You CC me on the mail you send, and I'm copied on the response. I can then also send an e-mail separately to the recipient, which they can respond to. That's good enough.

You're correct that I'm opposed to copyright law. However, copyright law is not going to go away anytime soon. If we do not follow it, the Wikimedia Foundation will be liable for copyright violations by Wikipedia's users, and Wikipedia can be shut down as a consequence. Furthermore, creating free content is, in my belief, the best way to oppose copyright: building a large archive of materials that anyone can use is something we all have the legal right to do. In other words, the best way to make copyright obsolete is to demonstrate that it is unnecessary.--Eloquence* 19:49, 2 July 2006 (UTC)

Lastovo copyvios[edit]

Why do you keep adding obvious copyvios to the article? I'm currently trying to save it, but you insist on those rip-offs without posting any permissions, any traces of releasing the images under an appropriate license or anything. Please first provide permissions (not only to use in Wikipedia, but under CC, GFDL or PD) and then add images. Here's a free one I found — Commons:Image:Lastovo isl.jpg. TodorBozhinov 10:59, 3 July 2006 (UTC)

I've just licensed a NASA satellite for free use in Wikipedia, the permission was mailed to permissions [at] wikimedia [dot] org. What's the matter really? Well, you can't just say you've mailed the friggin' permissions, you've got to show them on the image page for us to believe you. And Image:Pasadur.jpg can't have a permission, it says it's {{GFDL-self}} by Uvouvo and he said he nicked it from some site. That's an obvious discrepancy. TodorBozhinov 11:06, 3 July 2006 (UTC)
That's silly, you're relying on someone having forgotten to do something to restore the image there. I'm removing it and adding a copyvio tag then. Show the licenses. TodorBozhinov 11:10, 3 July 2006 (UTC)
It's just above from where you respond to me and Uvouvo linked to it from the discussion. Refrain from readding images already removed and discussed. It is a great photo, but a blatant copyvio. TodorBozhinov 11:16, 3 July 2006 (UTC)
Please make those permissions available on the image pages ASAP, otherwise I'd have to tag the images as 'no license'. TodorBozhinov 11:41, 3 July 2006 (UTC)
ASAP, and I mean it. TodorBozhinov 11:45, 3 July 2006 (UTC)
How do you think anyone is going to believe you by just saying 'I mailed them'? Put them on the image pages, as I already said several times. A good way to do this is to enclose the e-mail in <pre></pre>. It's not paranoia, but extremely necessary if you want that article to remain featured. And I'm drug-free. So please don't deviate from the topic of discussion. TodorBozhinov 11:52, 3 July 2006 (UTC)
You have to put the permission here too — Wikipedia:Successful requests for permission. You have to understand that the mail is only an archive. Put it there and I will include it on the image page. But it becomes questionable if you've obtained any permission at all or you're just monkeying. TodorBozhinov 12:49, 3 July 2006 (UTC)

this edit[edit]

This is outrageous, you're removing what someone else has posted there to be discussed. If you have any objections, you're supposed to discuss, not remove it. At least you should have asked me, you simply had to ask me before removing it. Now I intend to request some sort of administrator's intervention to stop you. Whatever we're arguing about, you simply can't remove what someone else has posted on a project page without even giving any explanation in the edit summary.

Is it that difficult to understand that until the permission is publicly available the license is still not determined? And why have you removed the so-called 'Croatian government'-public-domain image, it has nothing to do with those permissions, there you have to explain why you think it's public domain and provide a direct source. I'm just shocked how low-down someone can act. TodorBozhinov 17:18, 4 July 2006 (UTC)

By removing the {{PUIdisputed}} from Image:Kuzma.jpg you say the copyright isn't disputed, but it is. The tag only refers to the image being on PUI, what's wrong with that? I can wait, but until then it's possibly unfree. I hope it's clear, since I have no desire to further edit war over stupid rubbish like a tag that says I dispute an image copyright, when that's the truth. TodorBozhinov 21:04, 4 July 2006 (UTC)
Huh, that's no black list, it just indicates that it's possibly unfree, which is true. If you don't stop with these personal attacks, I'll have to resort to admin help. I'm taking it absolutely easy, I'm waiting for your permission, but until then, the image has no permission and unclear copyright status. And it's listed on PUI, the tag says that — it's a fact, why remove it? I don't know or care who you're waiting for, for the moment the image is on PUI. You remove the tag — you deny the truth.
By removing the tag you don't help the image or the article, on the contrary. You have to understand I'll do anything to stop the article from appearing on the Main Page if I'm not absolutely convinced of all the images' free copyright status. You have to understand that and work in this direction — to convince me, not to make me further doubt your claims. A featured article can't have such images with unclear copyright; actually, they should be removed straight away and stay out of the article until they're proven to be free. You have to understand that everything has to be perfect with an FA.
Is everything clear? And don't forget to give a source and rationale for Image:Pasadur.jpg, it's the other big copyvio problem that you keep making the article actually worse with. Until all the issues are solved adequately, please stop removing my notices — they're useful and necessary. TodorBozhinov 21:49, 4 July 2006 (UTC)

You really shouldn't remove that template from an image unless it put there in bad faith, which it doesn't appear to have been. It puts the image under consideration for eventual deletion as a copyright violation. Please understand this. Kevin_b_er 23:40, 4 July 2006 (UTC)

'He that mischief hatches mischief catches'[edit]

That's how it's in English. Interestingly, the Bulgarian proverb is mostly the same, but we say grave (grob) instead of pit (jama).

I sent an e-mail to Jaranda asking for an explanation, because I believe I was blocked unjustly (I only made three reverts, not four, and wouldn't have ever made a fourth one). You tried to present it as if I made six reverts, when in fact they were only three, and it's very likely you mislead Jaranda. But this is going to be corrected, I hope.

Again, I have nothing against you, and this 3RR report wasn't intended to do you harm — I was just doing what I felt (and still feel) is right. That you successfully mislead Jaranda by making it look as if I had made six reverts and your report was just the same as mine (when in fact you were blatantly vandalizing), is your own business. I don't care about that and I'm not angry at you. Justice will prevail, you know. It always does, sooner or later. TodorBozhinov 15:55, 5 July 2006 (UTC)

Hey[edit]

I've added the data you requested. BTW, what do you mean by this: About Bulgarians it should be noted that some people that would otherwise be considered as Macedonians feel Macedonians belong to Bulgarian nation and that they are not seperate. Therefore this is more political preference then ethnical distinction and that should be noted. !? --FlavrSavr 03:02, 13 July 2006 (UTC)

Unfortunately, my earlier contacts with the Macedonian Statistical Bureau have convinced me that they would like to keep their data for themselves, as they were too lazy to give me some crucial data needed at mk.wiki (number of inhabitants in the towns and villages in the Republic of Macedonia), so I really don't think that they would give me the number of Circassians. :/ As far as the Bulgarians are concerned, well, that's your point of view, but I totally disagree with it, and to some extent, I even find it offensive. The view that the difference between Macedonians and Bulgarians is a mere political one is abandoned everywhere, except in Bulgaria and in far-right organizations such as Stormfront. Documents that the Macedonians are an ethnicity on its own appeared as early in the 19th century, for example Karl Hron, Das Volkstum der Slaven Makedoniens (Vienna, 1890). All relevant ethno-linguistical organizations treat them as separate people with a separate language, history, customs, and even cuisine from the Bulgarians. As further elaboration would make me look like a nationalist, I'd rather put that matter to rest. All ethnic differences are in a way "political", after all. --FlavrSavr 18:53, 13 July 2006 (UTC)

BTW, it seems that we have a similar surname :). Any Montenegrin ancestry? --FlavrSavr 18:53, 13 July 2006 (UTC)

Wow, it seems that you sent me a message while I was editing my reply! Razlog je bio taj što sam imao nešto posla da završim! :( --FlavrSavr 18:57, 13 July 2006 (UTC)


My surname is Jaćoski, and it was supposed to be Jaćov - ski (error in my father's book of birth). I was told that my surname comes from a distant Montenegrin ancestor called Jać, and that's all I know about it. Also, my grandmother was Montenegrin (she was born in Ajaccio, though), so beware of further Montenegrin/Serb comparisons as well! :D Anyhow, I understand your point, but I still think the Montegrin/Serbian relations are not the perfect example. The number of declared Bulgarians is really low, and the "Serboman/Serbophil" faction is much stronger. There are about 40.000 Serbs here, and I doubt that the significant majority of them comes from traditional Serb regions such as Shumadija, Nish or whatever. There is a Serbian Radical Party, it's president being... Angele Jovanoski, the Serbiest of the Serbians! :) However, I do support their right for self-identification and I choose not to call them Serboman/Serbophil. These are modern times and everyone is or should be free to choose his nationality. --FlavrSavr 19:43, 13 July 2006 (UTC)

You mean self-identification? Self-determination is the doctrine that a people ought to be able to determine their own governmental forms and structures (e.g. if the inhabitants of Kosovo want independence, they should have it). --Tēlex 19:46, 13 July 2006 (UTC)

License tagging for Image:SLB.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:SLB.jpg. Wikipedia gets thousands of images uploaded every day, and in order to verify that the images can be legally used on Wikipedia, the source and copyright status must be indicated. Images need to have an image tag applied to the image description page indicating the copyright status of the image. This uniform and easy-to-understand method of indicating the license status allows potential re-users of the images to know what they are allowed to do with the images.

For more information on using images, see the following pages:

This is an automated notice by OrphanBot. If you need help on selecting a tag to use, or in adding the tag to the image description, feel free to post a message at Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. 19:08, 13 July 2006 (UTC)

Bulgarians and Serbs in the Republic of Macedonia[edit]

Hi! I see you're making some edits to the Republic of Macedonia article concerning the Bulgarians and Serbs in the Republic of Macedonia and you're being repeatedly reverted. Let me explain why.

Regarding the people who self-declare as Bulgarians in the census, as far as I know, they speak the same language as the ethnic Macedonians (the majority of the population in RoM), so they're not a minority in the classical sense. They are simply people who, noting that they're no different than the ethnic Macedonians, believe they are Bulgarians as are the other ethnic Macedonians in their opinion. These people are dispersed around the country but to my knowledge there are more in the eastern part of RoM, closer to the Bulgarian border, where the ties with Bulgaria have traditionally being at their strongest, specifically in the town of Strumica and the surrounding area, which remained Bulgarian until 1919. Of course, there's a number of Bulgarians who've come to RoM from Bulgaria counted in the census, but they're a different group.

As for the Serbs, they speak a recognizably different language and are a real minority — simply Serbs that have lived there for centuries as a minority or who have come to what is now RoM during the times of Yugoslavia. Those who are indigenous live in the north, close to Serbia, in organized groups. RoM and Serbia have generally had (and still have) absolutely perfect relations with one other, the Serbs are those who initiated the idea of a separate Macedonian (as opposed to Bulgarian) ethnic (as opposed to regional) consciousness on a larger scale, having given up the idea of Serbianizing what are today ethnic Macedonians, that's why there are (almost) no ethnic Macedonians who self-declare as Serbs. TodorBozhinov 16:57, 16 July 2006 (UTC)

Well, the formation of a Macedonian identity of a people who previously regarded themselves as Bulgarians is certainly political. As for these Serbs around Kumanovo, as speakers of the transitional Torlakian dialect, they may very likely be related to the local population of ethnic Macedonians who speak a close dialect, but decided to declare a different nationality due to a number of reasons; so yes, it is most likely a political and not purely ethnic division.
As you certainly know, to an extent every division between South Slavs is political in nature, since we all formed a linguistic continuum, had and still have the same or related customs, but we're now different nations and live in separate countries, the result of 19th-century nationalism and later developments, some of which completely obscure, weird, unfair and senseless.

Yeah, but the problem is, you have to find a source to reference it :) You'd probably easily find a source about Serbs in Kumanovo and the dialect they speak, but all the other things we discussed are very hard to reference. I'd also object including them justl ike that, without sources. TodorBozhinov 18:47, 16 July 2006 (UTC)

Your request[edit]

Hello, I'm not very interesting in the subject you proposed for translation, therefore I limited myself with hasty entries about Sarir and Avarian Khanate. I also expanded history sections of Dagestan and Caucasian Avars. P.S. Your talk page takes awfully long to load; please do other wikipedians a favour and archive it as soon as possible. --Ghirla -трёп- 16:15, 17 July 2006 (UTC)

U vezi Lastavo...nazalost Taljani i Srbi uvjek oce sto Hrvatska ima..i nazalost neki vjeruju te propagande njihove. Sto mozes neko voli lagat i puno toga vidim na Wikipedija ..a na kraju neki stranac mozda to procita i vjeruje u njihove lazi.

Could you please help protect this article from unfair deletionists?[edit]

Hi Luka! I found you through Association of Inclusionist Wikipedians. I was hoping if you can lend me a helping hand with http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Institute_of_Management article. On August 10 an unknown person marked it for deletion. Then a group of 4 deletionists gave a delete vote claiming non-notability. Inspite of the fact that nn is not an official reason for deletion, I provided a clear evidence of notability and verifiable references and won a stong keep vote from Ephilei (another inclusionist). However, my concern is that we are only 3 votes against 6 votes . Therefore, I kindly ask you to check the article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/International_Institute_of_Management (if it is too long you can check keep-comments). I’m not asking for anything more than an ethical vote. I’m willing to return the favor and review a similar articles. Every keep vote counts, please help! Miro.gal

Romanian & other stuff[edit]

Noroc domnule! Kako ćeš na srpskom i na hrvatskom slabo što pronaći za učenje rumunjskog jezika, najlakše ti je prionuti za knjige napisane engleskim ili njemačkim jezikom. A, ako me tvoj userbox ne vara, s engleskim bi se malo bolje snašao. Dobar didaktički pristup ima Dennis Deletant u famoznom Teach Yourself Romanian (kojeg ti, on a more discrete note, ja mogu kopirati i poslati); alternatively, od nekog studenta rumunjskog jezika na zagrebačkom sveučilištu možeš maznuti grozomornu knjigu Limba română, Manual pentru studenţii străini., čiji je izdavač sveučilište u Bukureštu, a za koju ti treba ili netko tko zna rumunjski, ili jaaaako puno strpljenja. Od CD-Romova za početak nije ni loš Talk Now Romanian koji se, opet discretely, da nabaviti kopiran. Pozdrav iz smrznuta Beča, nepTune 07:26, 8 September 2006 (UTC)

Opet ja. Jesam, ja sam taj. Nisam bio u izbjeglištvu u Mađarskoj, a mada jezike sve manje-više jednako dobro znam, poredani su reda radi, da ne bi izgledalo kao preseravanje. Javi mi se mailom da se dogovorimo oko knjiga. Živ bio! nepTune 20:35, 11 September 2006 (UTC)

Imena[edit]

Dakle ovako: poznat mi je tvoj stav o srpskohrvatskom jeziku, ali bih te zamolio da ne uklanjaš nazive na službenim jezicima Vojvodine iz članaka o mestima u Vojvodini. Bez obzira da li se to tebi sviđa ili ne, hrvatski je u Vojvodini služben jezik i hrvatski nazivi treba da stoje tamo. Ti očigledno ne razumeš neke stvari ali ću pokušati da ti ih objasnim. Pogledaj na primer ovaj članak: Beli Manastir. Sad mi reci koliko je NPOV da tu stoji samo mađarsko ime? Iako je ideja Vikipedije bila isključivo da pokaže alternativne nazive za subjekat članka, mnogi korisnici Vikipedije ta imena koriste u političke svrhe kao izraz iredentističkih pretenzija. Pogledaj i otkud mađarsko ime u tom članku: izmena anonimnog korisnika. Ja veoma dobro znam ko je taj anonimni korisnik i zašto je stavio mađarska imena na razne članke o Hrvatskoj, Srbiji, Slovačkoj, Rumuniji, itd... Nije to uradio da bi popravio kvalitet Vikipedije već da bi izrazio sopstvene teritorijalne pretenzije prema tim područjima. Ja nemam ništa protiv da mađarska imena stoje tu, ali pod uslovom da pri tom ne impliciraju ono što je taj anonimni korisnik želeo da implicira. A kako to postići? Tako što ćemo imati nazive i na drugim jezicima, i time mađarsko ime neće implicirati Veliku Mađarsku, već će implicirati isto ono što impliciraju i ostala imena na drugim jezicima. Naravno, problem nije isti u svakoj državi ili regionu. U slučaju Vojvodine stvar je jasna: mađarski tu predstavlja jedan od šlužbenih jezika i to je razlog zašto mađarska imena stoje tu (a ne nečije političke pretenzije), ali to je isto razlog zašto imena na ostalim službenim jezicima treba da budu tu, jer su svi ti jezici po statutu Vojvodine u ravnopravnoj upotrebi. Po mom mišljenju, prava neutralnost članaka će se obezbediti onda kad ime svakog mesta bude ispisano na svih 6 službenih jezika. Dakle, ne postoji razlog za brisanje imena na jednom od službenih jezika Vojvodine. Da ime nekog mesta u Vojvodini piše na bosanskom, onda bi mogao da ga obrišeš jer bosanski nije služben u Vojvodini, ali hrvatski jeste. Toliko o slučaju Vojvodine, a sada da pređemo na slučaj Hrvatske. Iako je u Hrvatskoj samo hrvatski jezik služben, neutralnost članaka o gradovima Hrvatske se takođe može obezbediti tako što će tamo biti više imena na jezicima od "istorijskog značaja". U slučaju ovog severnog dela Hrvatske, to bi bili latinski, mađarski, nemački, turski i srpski. E sada, ja namerno nisam napisao kako se Beli Manastir kaže na srpskom (ili kako se piše ćirilicom) jer bi me neki Hrvati onda optužili za "velikosrpstvo", ali je činjenica da bi srpsko ime koje bi tu stajalo pored mađarskog obezbedilo veću neutralnost članka o Belom Manastiru. Nadam se da ćeš jednog dana to shvatiti (a i ostali hrvatski korisnici naravno). PANONIAN (talk) 11:33, 10 September 2006 (UTC)

Your rude comment on my talkpage[edit]

In English a "series" can mean just about everything, a series of russian dolls seemed more logical than a tv programm (which are called tv series in English) this comment is rude and inappropriate not to mention quite late as I made those edits nearly 6 months ago. Refrain from making comments like this directed at me (or any other user really) and I suggest you look at Wikipedia:Civility. Rex 15:59, 18 September 2006 (UTC)

Matroesjka's[edit]

Thank you for your wonderful comment on my talk page this morning! As requested, I translated the Dutch article (or at least part of it), which can now be found here: Matroesjka's, with redirects at De Matroesjka's and Russian Dolls (series).

You know, last summer I got to visit Ljubljana, Zabreb, Rijeka, and Piran. They were actually really cool (seriously).

Anyway, thank you for getting me out of my chair and onto the translation of this utterly critical article. Like I've always said, Wikipedia works best as a collaboration! I even took the time to correct all of the English-language mistakes on the Cimos building page you created! Just returning the favor!

Why you gotta be a jackass like that, dude? What do you have to prove? And how do you actually prove it by writing obnoxious comments on people's talk pages -- and, as your talk page shows, removing stuff from their talk pages, and editing their user pages and engaging in revert wars? You're certainly not strengthening the point you wish to make.

Anyway, if you edit or remove anything I have written or that exists on my user-pages, I will revert them post haste, and then complain about your behavior to someone. You should have been banned from this site a long time ago.

Hi there Luka. I appreciate the switch on my user page for the Greek version of my name. As you can guess, I tried to give it an encyclopaedic look so as to be slightly different but also interesting. You know something about Greek I see, and you are correct in that the phoneme /v/ is used by the Greek letter Beta (β). Having written it as you did is not wrong. My name on the other hand is not based on anything Greek, however, supposing it were, you'll find that in Modern Greek, the lexeme /Υ υ/ when used after -A, or -E yields to a 'v' sound. This is from this influence that we along the eastern side of the former Yugoslavia (Bulgaria & Macedonia mainly but Serbia to a degree too) derive our words for "Europe" (Evropa) and "Auto" (Avto) and others. The two examples in Greek are ΕΥΡΟΠΑ and ΑΥΤΟ. Thank you for the interest anyhow. Regards! Evlekis 09:02, 2 November 2006 (UTC)

U redu, nemam ništa protiv da se to primeni i na druge članke - u svakom slučaju nije isto kada nešto stoji u prvoj rečenici i u posebnom poglavlju o imenu. Što se statuta Vojvodine tiče, to ima ovde: http://www.vojvodina.sr.gov.yu/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=100&Itemid=68 "Statutom AP Vojvodine, kao najvišim pravnim aktom u Pokrajini, utvrđeno je da su u službenoj upotrebi istovremeno sa srpskim jezikom još i mađarski, hrvatski, slovački, rumunski i rusinski jezik." Dakle, to je na nivou pokrajine, dok na lokalnom nivou nema određen kriterijum koji će jezici biti u službenoj upotrebi a koji ne - to svaka opština valjda sama odredi. U Novom Sadu na primer ima 4 službena jezika u upotrebi, a ni jedna manjinska zajednica nije veća od 6 posto stanovništva (taj broj od 20% važi u nekim drugim zemljama, na primer u Makedoniji, ali u Vojvodini ne).

Banat[edit]

Ajde molim te pročitaj stranu za razgovor kod članka Banat. Postoji poseban članak o demografiji srpskog Banata (samo se pitam zašto uklanjaš link do tog članka u članku Banat?), i nema nikakvog razloga da sve to ponovo napišemo u glavnom članku o Banatu. Drugi članak je i napravljen sa ciljem da se u glavnom članku o Banatu smanji količina teksta. PANONIAN 09:18, 9 June 2007 (UTC)

Sa druge strane i sama ova tabela ne valja - na primer Nemci su 1910 bili druga po veličini etnička grupa a ti si ih u tabeli stavio na zadnje mesto. Podatke sa različitih popisa je teško sravniti na ovaj način zbog razlike u veličini pojedinih etničkih grupa. PANONIAN 09:22, 9 June 2007 (UTC)
Pa jel ti mene zezaš sa "This is resume of that special article" kad si upravo prekopirao ceo "special article" umesto da si napravio "resume"??? Ako je sve to već pomenuto u posebnom članku, zaista nemamo razloga da sve to ponavljamo u glavnom članku. Ako ima razlog da to ponavljamo, molim te reci koji je? PANONIAN 18:38, 9 June 2007 (UTC)
A da ne pominjemo i činjenicu da u toj tvojoj tabeli iznosiš netačne podatke, na primer zadnji popis je bio 2002, a ne 2001, dok je broj koji koristiš kao broj Srba iz 1921 u stvari zbirni broj Srba i Hrvata. Tebi lično možda te sitnice nisu važne, ali su one veoma važne sa stanovišta tačnog prikaza. PANONIAN 18:43, 9 June 2007 (UTC)

Debate on the correct adjective for Kosovo[edit]

Hi! Based on your interest in the Balkans, you may be interested in the currently ongoing debate on whether we should be using Kosovo or Kosovar/Kosovan as the adjective for Kosovo. —Nightstallion 15:26, 31 July 2007 (UTC)

Kosovo[edit]

Hello. There's a discussion and vote going on at Talk:Kosovo#Kosovo:_terminology as to whether or not it's better to use Kosovo rather than Kosovan or Kosovar in the Wikipedia articles.

Mulatto[edit]

According to the article Mulatto it's Spanish. I'm from the UK and the term is never used there, so it clearly is not a well known word. Indeed I had never heard the word until quite recently. Besides the Mulatto article states that the term is a pejorative term, it is not the purpose of an encyclopaedia to use pejorative terms that are colloquialisms. Maybe the word in international in the sense that it is used in the Americas, it certainly is never used in the UK. It is untrue that the term "white skinned" is American, it is descriptive, and it's meaning is therefore obvious to anyone. We could compromise on mixed race perhaps? I'm happy to compromise if you can suggest an alternative to a potentially offensive term if you cannot accept light skinned. All the best. Alun 11:38, 22 August 2007 (UTC)

On second thoughts the description mulatto is misleading, it seems that this term applies to any person of mixed race background. Maybe we should just stste that her father was African-American and leave the "light-skinned" part out altogether. Alternatively we could just remove the picture altogether, does it really need to e there? What do you think? We need to reach agreement. All the best. Alun 11:44, 22 August 2007 (UTC)
And I think you missed my point. Mulatto is a racist term in some parts of the world. If you read the Mulatto article it states this clearly. It is not true that this term is well known, and it is not true that it is not racist. It is also not true that "light skinned African American" is racist. I don't follow the logic of this at all. African American is a cultural term, it applies to a specific cultural group in the USA, some of these people have lighter skin than others, but it's a cultural identity and not a racial group. Besides you ignored my second suggestion that we can simply say African American and dispense with the light skinned part. I'm happy to come to a form of words we can both agree with, but this term Mulatto seems to have very pejorative overtones, maybe it does not where you come from, I cannot say, but it certainly does in some parts of the world. I cannot accept this form of words, I find it offensive, I do not accept that there is not a less offensive compromise that we can come to. Please try to think of a better form of words that we can both agree on rather than ignoring my concerns. Also let's not turn this into an edit war, I'm happy to refrain from editing this part of the article until we can reach an agreement. Thanks. Alun 15:44, 22 August 2007 (UTC)
OK, I stand corrected. According to the OED Mulatto means a person with one White parent and one Black parent, it doesn't say this is a pejorative term.[31] But it does mean that the article caption is wrong, because apparently her father did not have one White parent and one Black parent, he had some African American ancestry, and therefore was not a mulatto. All the best. Alun 15:58, 22 August 2007 (UTC)

History of the Moldovan language merge[edit]

Based on the discussion in this article's talk page, I made a proposal [32] and gave its rationale [33]. You are receiving this standard message because during the last 12 months you have editted either this article or its talk page, or both. Dc76\talk 01:04, 9 November 2008 (UTC)

Greeks in FYROM[edit]

Regarding this, do you think you could actually discuss your edits instead of just blindly reverting? You have established no consensus on the talk page for such a major (and extremely bad) rewrite. ·ΚΕΚΡΩΨ· 14:07, 10 November 2008 (UTC)

Talk page etiquette[edit]

Luka Jačov, while the discussion at Talk:Republic of Macedonia has become contentious, some of us have been trying to keep it civil. The use of a perjorative in this edit was unhelpful. Groups of people should have the right to some control over what they are called (as opposed to what others are called). Please consider striking the offending term, or replacing it with something inoffensive. Jd2718 (talk) 22:46, 10 November 2008 (UTC)

I am glad you did not intend to offend. However, the problem is the word itself. If you would strike it or replace it, that would be a Good Thing. Thank you, Jd2718 (talk) 23:24, 10 November 2008 (UTC)

Zdravo Luka. Bolje je koristiti "Graecophile" od govoreći "Grkoman". Ako netko vas zove "srboman" bi vam vjerojatno biti uvrijeđen. Izvinete moje hrvatski nije dobro. Pozdravi, BalkanFever 03:10, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

Revert-warring[edit]

Information.png Please do not undo other people's edits repeatedly, as you are doing in Greeks in the Republic of Macedonia, or you may be blocked from editing Wikipedia. The three-revert rule prohibits making more than three reversions in a content dispute within a 24-hour period. Additionally, users who perform a large number of reversions in content disputes may be blocked for edit warring, even if they do not technically violate the 3RR.

Balkan topo en.jpg In a 2007 arbitration case, administrators were given the power to impose discretionary sanctions on any user editing Balkans-related articles in a disruptive way. If you engage in further inappropriate behaviour in this area, you may be placed under sanctions including blocks, a revert limitation or an article ban. Thank you.

Fut.Perf. 06:22, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

Final warning. I believe you actually have something useful to say in the Macedonian issues, so I would not want you to get blocked / topic-banned, but this revert-warring absolutely must stop. If your behaviour gets reported to the relevant notice boards, I'm pretty certain you'll face quite serious sanctions. Please try something different. Fut.Perf. 17:07, 14 November 2008 (UTC)

You've been mentioned on a noticeboard[edit]

Hello Luka Jačov. Your edits are being discussed at the edit-warring noticeboard. You can join the discussion and give your own comment there. EdJohnston (talk) 18:41, 14 November 2008 (UTC)

November 2008[edit]

I have blocked you for 24 hours for edit warring on the Greeks in the Republic of Macedonia article over a long period of time. Edit warring is not progressive on Wikipedia. If you wish to contest this block, please use the {{unblock}}. ScarianCall me Pat! 19:12, 14 November 2008 (UTC)

This blocked user's unblock request has been reviewed by an administrator, who declined the request. Other administrators may also review this block, but should not override the decision without good reason (see the blocking policy). Do not remove this unblock review while you are blocked.

Luka Jačov (block logactive blocksglobal blocksautoblockscontribsdeleted contribsfilter logcreation logchange block settingsunblockcheckuser (log))


Request reason:

The major complaint about the article that it was badly writen. As article's grammar was fixed some users again started to revert it to previous version without discussing it previously on article's talk page even after user that rewrote article asked them to do so. Second thing I only reverted twice changed to version of User:Bože pravde

Decline reason:

I concur with Scarian that there was edit-warring, along with referring to other edits as vandalism, and not engaging in discussion at the talkpage. The block was appropriate. —-Elonka 21:42, 14 November 2008 (UTC)

If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first, then use the {{unblock}} template again. If you make too many unconvincing or disruptive unblock requests, you may be prevented from editing this page until your block has expired.

Request reason:

Then why was only I blocked? Its obvious that users User:Future Perfect at Sunrise , User:ΚΕΚΡΩΨ and User:NikoSilver participated in edit war jointly. Why arent they blocked?

Edit warring[edit]

When you are fresh off a block for edit warring, it would be best if you not perform the same revert that got you blocked in the first place. But that's what you have done here. In addition, I note that you marked the edit as minor, which it certainly is not. Please revert yourself before anyone has the chance to reblock you. Jd2718 (talk) 00:50, 16 November 2008 (UTC)

Stop x nuvola with clock.svg
You have been blocked from editing for a short time in accordance with Wikipedia's blocking policy for engaging in an edit war. Please be more careful to discuss controversial changes or seek dispute resolution rather than engaging in an edit war. If you believe this block is unjustified, you may contest the block by adding the text {{unblock|your reason here}} below.

Continued the same edit war you were blocked for two days earlier, making the identical revert. Please wait for a consensus on the Talk page before restoring material to a hotly-contested article. EdJohnston (talk) 04:59, 16 November 2008 (UTC)

Luka[edit]

Luka, morate prekinuti. Uzmi ovaj "odmor", da bi odražavala na ono što su radili. Ova situacija je neuspješan, ali pokušajte započeti konstruktivnu raspravu (ne uređivanje) kada se vratite.

Greeks in the Republic of Macedonia[edit]

Per the remedies listed at Wikipedia:Requests for arbitration/Macedonia, you are restricted to WP:0RR on Greeks in the Republic of Macedonia (except for obvious vandalism).

File source problem with File:DjordjeKaradjordjevic.jpg[edit]

File Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading File:DjordjeKaradjordjevic.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 18:44, 19 April 2009 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Calliopejen1 (talk) 18:44, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

File:Kosidba.jpg needs authorship information[edit]

Dear uploader:

The media file you uploaded as File:Kosidba.jpg appears to be missing information as to its authorship (and or source), or if you did provide such information, it is confusing for others trying to make use of the image.

It would be appreciated if you would consider updating the file description page, to make the authorship of the media clearer.

Although some images may not need author information in obvious cases, (such where an applicable source is provided), authorship information aids users of the image, and helps ensure that appropriate credit is given (a requirement of some licenses).

  • If you created this media yourself, please consider explicitly including your user name, for which: {{subst:usernameexpand|Luka Jačov}} will produce an appropriate expansion,
    or use the {{own}} template.
  • If this is an old image, for which the authorship is unknown or impossible to determine, please indicate this on the file description page.
If you have any questions please see Help:File page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 13:22, 29 December 2011 (UTC)
