Welcome to the Wikipedia[edit]

Here are some links I find useful

Cheers, Sam Spade 08:54, 10 May 2004 (UTC)

Hi Jastrow! Below you will find the info that you posted regarding my ancestor...."Adam of Lone" or "Adam de la Lone" ...anyway where did you find the information? Do you remember? I know his name is found in the Domesday book.....Any help you can give me would be much appreciated.

Adam of Lone, born in 1046, was a commander in the army of William the Conqueror during the invasion of England in 1066.

The role of Adam of Lone was to ensure the expeditionary transport of the 7.000 men of the force of the duke Guillaume through the English Channel for the conquest Norman of England in September 1066. Following the victory with the battle of Hastings and the crowning of Guillaume, Adam of Lone received grounds in reward of his good and faithful services.

As much of Norman invaders, the name of Lone has later was anglicized by its descendants in “Lane”.AdelizaoofNormandy777 01:18, 8 October 2006 (UTC) ----


Jastow.... I am a direct descendent of Adam de la Lone. I have several family books that speak of him. Any additional resources would be much appreciated as our libraries are limited here in the States. I noticed at one time you posted information about said "Adam"...Please share your resources. RegardsAdelizaoofNormandy777 01:10, 1 October 2006 (UTC)

Antinous[edit]

Thanks for your comments. I had doubts about the authenticity of the bust because (a) I couldn't find any references to it as spelled, and (b) I didn't see it in the Louvre when I was Antinous-hunting. You have explained those two points. I also thought the hair style looked too feminine for it to be Antinous, who is usually shown as looking slightly older and more masculine than the average catamite, but if it is a late Hellenistic work as you say that would explain the feminising tendency. I also thought the bust looked to be in miraculously good condition to be an authentic ancient work. But maybe the Divine Hadrian is taking care of it. Adam 00:07, 30 August 2005 (UTC)

blocage[edit]

  • mon problème

J'ai été bloqué sur la wikipédia francophone. Je suis 193.51.93.89 . Lorsque je veux modifier, je ne peux pas, et il y a marqué que je dois contacter un administrateur. Mais comme je suis bloqué je ne peux pas contacter d'administrateur pour prendre ma défense et demander mon déblocage : on se rend alors compte de l'absurdité injuste qu'implique un blocage. Toutefois en cherchant longuement parmi les administrateurs de la wikipédia francophone quelqu'un qui avait des pages dans d'autres wikipédia que la wikipédia francophone, j'ai fini par te trouver.

  • le conflit

Le conflit est à propos de l'article fr:Émeutes de 2005 dans les banlieues françaises. J'y ai mis des informations sur les manifestations à venir et sur des propos célèbres de Lilian Thuram. [1] . Toutes ces informations ont été supprimées par des administrateurs qui les jugent non neutres. Pourtant ces informations sont vraies.

Au sujet des manifestations, j'ai informé d'une manif de gauche, mais j'ai aussi informé de manifestations d'extrême droite. On m'accuse de vouloir faire de la promotion politique mais cela est profondément stupide car je ne peux pas être à la fois d'extrême droite et de gauche.

Au sujet des propos de Lilian Thuram, il s'agit là de propos célèbres qui ont été écrits dans les journaux et entendus à la radio.

  • sources

Dans les deux cas on a exigé que je mentionne des sources, ce qui est un scandale. En effet ça ne devrait pas être une obligation de mentionner des sources sur wikipédia : wikipédia se veut d'être une source et non de répéter des sources. L'intérêt de Wikipédia c'est que comme elle regroupe les informations de tous, elle peut dépasser quantitativement n'importe quel journal ou encyclopédie. Exiger des sources fait perdre son intérêt à wikipédia.

Mais admettons qu'il faille mentionner des sources :

D'abord je pense que quelqu'un qui veut censurer les informations devrait faire l'effort au préalable de faire des recherches. Ensuite je constate que beaucoup d'informations figurent dans l'article fr:Émeutes de 2005 dans les banlieues françaises sans que soient mentionnées leurs sources. Je pose la question : pourquoi certaines informations nécessitent des sources et d'autres pas ?

Pire. Après qu'on ait exigé que je mentionne des sources, j'ai cédé et j'ai pris la peine de mentionner des sources. Malgré ça mes informations ont de nouveau été retirées. Tel un caprice, on m'a demandé de préciser encore les sources. J'ai voulu les préciser un peu plus mais j'ai été bloqué, comme si on voulait m'empêcher de préciser les sources.

  • conclusion

Les administrateurs qui m'ont bloquée et qui ont censuré les informations que j'ai mises sont des gens partiaux et dangereux au bon développement de wikipédia. Je demande leur révocation.

J'ai subi leur partialité. Je demande à être débloqué dans les plus brefs délais.

Merci de m'avoir lu. Merci d'une réponse rapide, claire et responsable.

  • Post-Scriptum

Je dois partir travailler : je ne serais pas sur wikipédia avant ce soir.

Merci de lire les pages suivantes : Citez vos sources et Wikipédia:Ce que Wikipédia n'est pas.
Donc 1)les demandes du/des administrateurs qui ont pris sur eux de vous bloquer ne sont pas des chimères, mais une application des règles. 2) Ils vous avaient avertis très clairement de ce qui se passerait si vous continuiez.
Je respecterai donc leur décision. N'hésitez pas à utiliser votre semaine de blocage pour parcourir les pages concernant la façon dont on doit éditer sur Wikipédia. Cordialement,notafish }<';> 15:49, 14 November 2005 (UTC)
  • mes derniers propos

Donc si j'ai bien compris, on est passioné par le fait qu'il y ait eu 54 voitures brûlées tel jour et non pas 55, mais les propos chocs d'un membre du Haut Conseil de l'Intégration, on s'en fout. C'est brillant...

J'ai lu sur la page qui explique qu'il faut citer les sources : Quand des sources extérieures sont consultées pendant l'écriture ou au cours de la vérification d'un article, il apparaît indispensable de fournir une liste de références, livres, articles, ou sites internet. 1/Je prends note du fait que les sources ne doivent être mentionnées seulement lorsque les sources extérieures sont consultées pendant l'écriture ou au cours de la vérification d'un article (il n'est donc pas systématique de devoir mentionner des sources, heureusement pour wikipédia). 2/De toute façon j'ai mentionné mes sources, alors je ne comprends pas ce qu'on me reproche.

J'ai aussi lu ce que wikipédia n'est pas, et je me suis particulièrement intéressé à la partie "ne pas faire de promotion", puisque d'après ce que j'ai compris, c'est ce qu'on me reproche. J'y lis : Mais un article peut, bien sûr, rapporter objectivement ce que disent les promoteurs d'un sujet. L'article regorge de citations de Sarkozy et Cie, par contre, Lilian Thuram et les manifestations (qu'elles soient d'extrême droite ou de gauche) n'ont même pas le droit à 5 lignes.

J'insiste, il y a partialité de la part des administrateurs.

Au fait, puisque j'ai l'obligation de mentionner plus de sources mais que je ne peux pas mentionner plus de sources sur la wikipédia francophone, je vais mentionner deux sources supplémentaires ici même : une au sujet de Thuram et une au sujet de la manifestation.

Sassanid pics[edit]

Hi there , thank you so much with your Sassanid art pictures. I as the writer of the Sassanid Empire article would like to ask whether there are more pics ? if so could you please share those ? Amir85 21:53, 12 March 2006 (UTC)

Greek Esclavage[edit]

Merci - my bad - good catch. If you don't mind, I'll post you a quick note when I'm finished to have a look before I post the article formally, just in case I make some other errors like that...Bridesmill 17:23, 15 May 2006 (UTC)

Phew! Translation finished; also found english sources for the quotes (rather than doing three-way translations). I took the liberty of making a few changes in style for anglophone understanding; a very pleasant article to translate; please feel free to edit (just let me know where I screwed up SFriendly.gif).Bridesmill 02:26, 18 May 2006 (UTC)

Samothrace[edit]

Re Arsinoe - yes, I've put in both latter marriages. Re the ship (de de ce) - obviously I was trying to read too much into a typo - the ship type makes perfect sense. Merci encore, Bridesmill 17:00, 17 May 2006 (UTC)

Prostitution[edit]

Thanks to your assistance, Prostitution in Ancient Greece is now there; please feel free to critique. Merci Beaucoup.Bridesmill 15:30, 22 May 2006 (UTC)


Historiography[edit]

posted this to History of Greece, but not sure if you watch that; I am sure you probably have an opinion on this: I'm involved in some trans from the French wiki; and there are starting to be some conflicts in that the french have a different chronology for the periods (their Archaic = everything pre-6th century BCE, Classical = 510 to 323BCE, & Hellenistic appears to last right to 25AD. Additionally, a lot of our articles which are entitled '(subject in) Ancient Greece' really deal with all of Greek antiquity rather than just 776-323. For the Fr, not a prob - the article titles are '..Greek Antiquity', their periods are Archaic, Classical, Hellenistic But, to reiterate, ours are '...Ancient Greece', of which the Ancient period is but a subset. Two issues then:

  1. Should all of such articles be renamed to 'xxx in Greek Antiquity' or alternatively broken down into an article for each period (not practicable or worthwhile in many cases)
  2. When translating, should we be paying particular attention to the disjoint in period dates between the two schools, and does that mean we may need to go back and fact-check previous translations from the French (and possibly other langs - I'm not familiar with the historiography though I intend to start reading up on it now) (i.e. when they say "at the beginning of the classical period" that should translate to "in the middle of the Ancient period" - I think the answer for this one is 'YES'.Bridesmill 16:28, 24 May 2006 (UTC)

I'm sure you have some thoughts; any hints on a good author for French school hisoriography would be appreciated as well (Being in Kingston, Canada, I have access to a reasonable Fr. collection at the universities) Thanks Bridesmill 02:18, 25 May 2006 (UTC)

Have uploaded image to my talk which might explain the issue better.Bridesmill 16:12, 27 May 2006 (UTC)

I'll adjust the graphic to reflect your info, but please be advised I got those dats from the fr:Chronologie_de_la_Grèce_antique, so you have some tweaks to do there SHysterical.gif. That still does leave us with "your" classique starting halfway throu "our" ancient, and "your" hellénistique ending halfway through "our" Roman. Plus possibly some other disconnects - eek - would love to figure out how this all came to be...Bridesmill 18:02, 27 May 2006 (UTC)

Women[edit]

Noticed you have an ebauche on the go on Women in Ancient Greece - have here an article from Hypatia entitled "Women Philospophers in the Ancient Greek World:Donning the Mantle" by Kath.Wider (spring '86), as well as History of Education article on training of greek girls, inter alia - please drop me an email if you are interested - have them here as PDFs.Bridesmill 22:28, 11 June 2006 (UTC)

A translation of Hilotes has been done at Helot, for your information/comments. Cheers, Bridesmill 19:54, 13 June 2006 (UTC)

Cole, Susan Guettel. Could Greek women read and write? Wider, Kathleen. "Women philosophers in the Ancient Greek World: Donning the Mantle". Both too big to send - so am using them to create draft of female literacy & philosophers section at User:Bridesmill/Sandbox/Draft, for you to incorporate as desired - will let you know when its done.Bridesmill 00:58, 18 June 2006 (UTC)

Food in ancient Greece[edit]

I had to wait for a couple of weeks (I was too busy!) but I'm having a look at the English article now. It's very good! I am making some very minor changes, which I hope you'll approve of. I'll let you know when I've finished (two more days maybe) and will be interested to know your reaction. I haven't looked at the French version yet, but I suppose they are still very similar. Thanks for the message -- Andrew Dalby 21:31, 14 July 2006 (UTC)

Oh, I still agree with everything I said in Siren Feasts (at least, 99% of it)! I just haven't had cause to quote it as yet in editing Wikipedia. That's how mechanical the compilation of User:Andrew Dalby/Bibliography has been. I often see myself as a food historian, but by no means always. Indeed, when I decided on a life ambition (about 30 years ago) it was to be listed in the Dictionary of National Biography with the description "miscellaneous writer". I didn't, 30 years ago, foresee Wikipedia.
Incidentally, I'm still looking at the Diet of Ancient Greece article (which I still think is excellent, by the way!) and I may yet add a few more items. Feel free to disagree with me, of course. Andrew Dalby 17:59, 18 July 2006 (UTC)

Pella[edit]

Translation question - working on Pella - the Fr has the phrase 'Elle fait l’objet d'une déduction coloniale à une date indéterminée entre 45 av. J.-C. et 30 av. J.-C.' - I'm drawing a blank on how to translate 'déduction coloniale' - any ideas? Thanks Bridesmill 22:29, 26 July 2006 (UTC)

Greek Vases[edit]

Hi, I know you to be an indefatigable photographer of greek vases, so if you have any unpublished pictures you can add to Typology of Greek Vase Shapes I'd be very grateful. Twospoonfuls 14:10, 25 September 2006 (UTC)

Hi again! Thanks for taking an interest in my article. If it's not too much trouble perhaps you could snap the following - all are on Sully 1st floor:
  • hydrie, salle 47, K24, acquisition Coll. Durand 1825
  • cratere cloche, salle47, G503, acq. 1835
  • lebes, salle 47, K643, acq. coll. Durand 1825
  • lebes gamikos, salle 47, MNB2108, acq. 1880
  • pyxis, salle 47, CA636, acq. 1895
  • askos, salle 47, G446, acq.1879
  • amphore type C, salle 46, G220, coll. Campana 1861

  • amphore type B, salle 42, F33, coll. Camino 1840
  • olpe, salle 39, F161, coll. Campana 1861.

I would ask for more, but that would seem greedy :D. Many thanks. Twospoonfuls 15:21, 29 September 2006 (UTC)

Well, if you're feeling keen the lecythe gland, Sully, salle 44, MNB 1320, 1878 and the amphore panathenees, Denon, salle 3, MNE 1005, 1994 would be enormously useful. Other than that please do take a picture of any vase form that takes your eye, especially if it is unusual. I know I can rely on your good taste. Twospoonfuls 20:53, 29 September 2006 (UTC)
I'm speechless. All I can say is wow, and thanks.Twospoonfuls 22:43, 9 October 2006 (UTC)

Hi from Coppertwig[edit]

Hello, Jastrow. Nice to meet you. Your articles [translated as] Hellenistic Art and Derveni krater were a pleasure to translate: flowing poetic language. Thanks for helping to fix up the translations. --Coppertwig 12:31, 13 November 2006 (UTC)

Cretan couple[edit]

Exactly! This is very exciting, because it opens up another window onto the Cretan tradition, and the scholarship indicates that this pushes back the date of probable pederastic rituals anothe 1000 years, to around 1650BCE. This, of course, based on work done on the Chieftain Cup. By the way, if you find anywhere a wiki-useable 1picture of that cup, please let me know. I am beginning to think I should travel to Heraklion and take a picture of it myself. Cheers, Haiduc 17:21, 28 November 2006 (UTC)

WikiProject France[edit]

Hello! We are a group of editors working to improve the quality of France related articles. You look like someone who might be interested in joining us in the France WikiProject and so I thought I'd drop you a line and invite you!

Image:Eudes IV, Duke of Burgundy - Project Gutenberg etext 19488.jpg[edit]

Thanks. I'm easy about whether it gets renamed (should be IMage:Philip III, Duke of Burgundy - Project Gutenberg etext 19488.jpg or deleted. Thing is, we already have better a image of Phil and I question whether we'd use this one. I can't give any more guidance on the rename or delete issue. but we do need to get the name changed lest anyone be misled into thinking this is dear old Eudes. Time for you to be bold! --Tagishsimon (talk)

Thanks. --Tagishsimon (talk)

Those Greeks again[edit]

Hi, you're probably fed up with Greek pots. If you are I wouldn't blame you, but would you be interested in adding a few more to Typology of Greek Vase Shapes? Twospoonfuls 10:03, 9 February 2007 (UTC)

Hi, jastrow! Thanks for taking an interesting this article, I'd like to finish it off as well as is possible. It's a bugger about the tyrrhenian amphorae, I wish I could have contributed more pictures myself, but the Scottish collections are a poor affair - and so is my photography! So I've relied on the Beazley archive page and the line drawings in Understanding Greek Vases, Getty, 2002, as guides and I have to admit discerning the differences between the oinochoi and kylixes is a puzzle, but I think the following is true:


As for the pointed amphora, I think the essential thing is that it doesn't have a foot. So i guess the first one you pointed out would be more likely to be one, unless the foot just fell off! Twospoonfuls 19:41, 9 February 2007 (UTC)
I'd definately say it was a shape 7, judging from the Beazley archive table, and I've added it as such. Thanks for efforts. No luck with the kylixes though? Twospoonfuls 21:11, 25 February 2007 (UTC)

Uploading new version of a picture[edit]

Thanks for the quick response! Unfortunately, I'm not seeing the link you mentioned - "upload a new version of the file." I looked on both the Wikipedia and the Common versions of the page, and I even did a text search for "upload." I'm logged in, on both systems. But I'm not seeing that link! Any more hints? -Pete 11:25, 24 February 2007 (UTC)

I see where you mean, but the "upload" link is definitely not there. Somewhere on one of the intro pages, I saw that accounts are restricted in some way for the first few days after they're created - I forget exactly where I saw that, or wht the restriction was. Maybe that's what's going on? I just made my Commons account 2 days ago. -Pete 19:10, 24 February 2007 (UTC)

Borghese Vase[edit]

Beautiful image! Think about taking photos of a) some of the famous pieces of French furniture in the Musée des arts décoratifs, b) close-up details of images on Greek pottery, c)Sèvres ceramics. So many articles can't be written without images... --Wetman 06:12, 20 March 2007 (UTC)

Helots[edit]

FYI, on the reference desk, someone has asked a challenging question about material you contributed to Helots. Perhaps you can handle the question more readily than anyone else. Wareh 15:57, 21 March 2007 (UTC)

Pots[edit]

Hi, glad to be of service. I'm very happy with the way the typology page has turned out, so I don't really feel the need to add anything more or to change the detail pictures. So its up to you if you want to add new ones, I'll update the copyright template on the existing ones if you choose not to alter them. I cribbed the idea for the table from the Richter-Milne book which goes into quite a bit more detail. If you feel moved to add anything to the page that would be wunderbar, but I think its a good introduction to the subject as it is - what more can you ask from a wikipedia article! Twospoonfuls 19:23, 28 March 2007 (UTC)

Hello![edit]

My name is Jaromir (Riva72). Unfortunately, we cannot have a longer conversation due to irrational actions by the user called Michaelas10. He is not your advocate. The reverts should be done by you if you do not wish my message at your discussion page. Welcome to read the discussion history page. Can we talk at my discussion page, please? Just a few words, a few lines, if you please.. I would appreciate your response. --Riva72 17:35, 4 April 2007 (UTC)

  • Hello! Thank you for your message. The affair both at the Commons and the Polish Wikipedia projects is nasty.. No other comments. The user Yonatan deleted my Commons user page. I have thanked him. Yesterday, I wrote at his discussion page the following words. I would like you to also read them as I get involved you in this case. Sorry for this if it causes you troubles. The words to Yonatan are my final words in the case. I would appreciate you, as the Commons administrator, to consider them and keep them in mind as my standpoint (my attitude).

To Yonatan:

  • 1. Can you remove my IP (213.199.192.60) the Commons user page as well, please? --Riva72 18:38, 4 April 2007 (UTC)
  • 2. Can you place the templates: Copyrighted free use provided that|The Polish Wikipedia project is prohibited by the author to use this photo and its derivatives (the template [2]) to the set of six photos (marked: Image:Caspod1.gif to Image:Caspod6.gif). The Polish wikipedia may use the Image:Caspod7.gif and Image:Caspod8.gif.
  • 3. Can you change the licences of all my photos uploaded to the Commons? Under these circumstances, I (as the author) would like the following licence: cc-by-2.5 for all the pictures uploaded by me. I want them released under the condition that (no derivative works possible or, if not applicable, under the condition that if you create a derivative work, you must remove from the derivative work any reference to the licensor or the original author). I do not want them to be modified and vandalised and used with the information that the author of the modified photo is Riva, or that the original photo was taken by Riva. I want them to be used and distributed in their original form. I grant you, the Commons administrator, all the rights to conduct this request of mine..
  • 4. After that, I will no upload any photos to the Commons and post no messages in the future. I will retire from the Commons.. If I broke this agreement you might freely block me indefinitely. --Riva72 19:01, 4 April 2007 (UTC)

Please, respond... --Riva72 19:01, 4 April 2007 (UTC)

  • I believe this would be the best solution to the problem which is most unpleasant and I will assume it is closed (finished, resolved) --Riva72 19:03, 4 April 2007 (UTC) + --Riva72 19:17, 4 April 2007 (UTC)


To you, Jastrow: I am sorry for writing in English.. I learnt French at school for 7 years. I like this language. Actually, I like foreign languages. I am an Esperantist. The French language case: unfortunately, I have had no contact with Francophones so my speaking and writing knowledge of this language deteriorated. Fortunately, I am able to read and understand this language on the intermediate level. :) Have a nice day! --Riva72 06:57, 5 April 2007 (UTC)


  • Some of the crucial arguments against the user called Ejdzej and the blockade which I was punished with. The arguments presented below are Riva's answer to The-User-Called-Ejdzej words which I quote: Instead of writting deletion request, Riva72 started to change CC license tags to NonDerivative version, which has "speedy delete" effect. WarX issued a blockade. I will not trust Riva72 again. A.J. 07:48, 4 April 2007 (UTC) - [3].
1.Speedy deletion is also a deletion request. --Riva72 07:21, 5 April 2007 (UTC)
2.I made no attempt to withdraw the photos from the Commons depository. I released them under the different licence to which I have rights (as the author and the authorised uploader). It is not my fault that this licence disqualifies the photos from being deposited with the Commons. It is the fault of the Commons policy. :) --Riva72 07:21, 5 April 2007 (UTC)


  • =Marie, I am referring to the following photos in point nr 2 above=
  • =I am referring to the following photos in point nr 3 above=

That's all. Please, help me to realize the above requests.. --Riva72 17:51, 5 April 2007 (UTC)

The Riva's request[edit]

  • Jastrow, I ask you, the Commons administrator, to unblock my access to the Commons and then I will perform the above mentioned actions (points 2 and 3) myself.. I ask you only to remove my IP user page. I would appreciate if these actions of mine WERE RESPECTED at the Commons! After that, I will ask you to remove my Commons discussion pages (IP's and personal) and do some deletions with the photo files history in order to keep only the current file version (I will provide you with the proper links) and after that, I will no upload any photos to the Commons and post no messages in the future. I will retire from the Commons forever.. If I broke this agreement you might freely block me indefinitely. Please, respond.. --Riva72 09:06, 7 April 2007 (UTC)


  • Jastrow.. =for the God's sake..= please, read my today's discussion page ([51]) - the exchange of words between me and Yonatan.. I am talking/referring to one thing.. and he is answering via talking/referring to the other thing..

It happened to be that you are the only reliable person at the Commons project I've met.. I respect you.. so I will accept the words of you in this unfortunate case. Please, remain honest... --Riva72 10:54, 7 April 2007 (UTC)

An invitation[edit]

Marie, I invite you to read the message and to voice your opinion at: [52], if you please.. If you feel like writing a commment, please do it.. I think this may also put the end to our disputes here.. I will not bother you again. Thank you. --Riva72 11:08, 8 April 2007 (UTC)

The link[edit]

Marie, as you can see: due to the serious warring with some Commons and some Wikipedia admins who (unfortunately) ignored my rights, showed indifference to my problem and acted viciously, in the misleading way and even did not take any effort to comprehend my POV I decided to leave both the projects forever. I would appreciate if you took part in the final deletion request discussions available at: [53] and[54] and place your voice which would be appreciated. I respect your decision even if you do not feel like placing any comments/votes. Believe that all I said in the chapters above (and everywhere) is true and Riva72 knows his worth and certainly is the person who can be trusted. Against all odds. Thank you! --Riva72 09:16, 9 April 2007 (UTC) + --Riva72 09:49, 11 April 2007 (UTC)

  • P.S. No matter what the results of the delete-requests are I will upload no photos and place no messages both at the Commons and the Wikipedia. I started to think that the Wikimedia projects appear to be free.. They shine at the surface and, thus, appeal to people and catch them but, actually, these projects engage in a kind of intellectual piracy and thieving e.g. gaining and gathering treasures (e.g. photos at the Commons or texts which become deprived of the author's control and opened for distortions!) which later may be used in these distorted forms for different purposes and by different groups for their own (even dirty purposes). The existance of so many mirror pages scattered all over the Internet is also one of the proofs. Regards! --Riva72 09:49, 11 April 2007 (UTC)
Jastrow, if you would like to answer to the above messages, please post your message here, at your talk page as I requested to have my talk and user pages removed. --Riva72 14:39, 12 April 2007 (UTC)
  • Jastrow, the project starts stinking.. Please, read carefully - if you please: [55] and [56]. --Riva72 19:35, 12 April 2007 (UTC)
Ok. At least one request was resolved.. I am sorry to disturb you. This is my last post to you as I have left the project. Good luck! --Riva72 20:03, 12 April 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for inquiring about the assessment. Please understand, the purpose of assessing articles is to provide editors with a guide for improving articles. It is quite an interesting topic and could be improved. For this article to be rated B-Class in the Wikiproject Greece, it needs work in two areas:

1. It is suitably referenced, and all major points are appropriately cited.

There are many statements subject to challenge that are not referenced.

2. It reasonably covers the topic, and does not contain major omissions or inaccuracies.

The article seems complete, but in copying only French sources (presumably from the French wikipedia) it fails to mention Archestratus' Life of Luxury, which contains some primary sources for the subject. That is only one source that I noted in a brief review of the subject, there may be more, or not; I don't know.

Good luck with this and I will be happy to reassess it in the future and even to review it for GA status if it gets there. Argos'Dad 02:40, 2 July 2007 (UTC)

Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference[edit]

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and you will still be able to manually mark your edits as being minor in the usual way.

For established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. With the script in place, you can continue with this functionality indefinitely (its use is governed by WP:MINOR). If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 19:28, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

Europe 10,000 Challenge invite[edit]

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Europe/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like Germany, Italy, the Benelux countries, Iberian Peninsula, Romania, Slovenia etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. If you would like to see masses of articles being improved for Europe and your specialist country like Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon, sign up today and once the challenge starts a contest can be organized. This is a way we can target every country of Europe, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant and also sign under any country sub challenge on the page that you might contribute to! Thank you. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 09:10, 6 November 2016 (UTC)
