Re: Logging in[edit]

Hello. There have been some problems with logging in lately (see the Wikipedia:Village pump). You might want to try logging in again (the problems might've been ironed out). -- Notheruser 00:38, 29 Jul 2003 (UTC)

:-( Nope, not yet apparently. But it does seem to be a more generic problem than I thought at first, so I'll be patient. Thanks for the quick answer! -- 00:40, 29 Jul 2003 (UTC)

Press release[edit]

Editing on the meta version of the press release has effectively stopped. Please be advised that we may be distributing the non-English press releases as early as Monday 29 September. The English version will be distributed the week after in order to smooth out the load on our servers. --maveric149 22 Sep 2003

Hi. I sent out a bulk email regards wikipedia:arbitrators, but I had at least one email address wrong, so I thought I should mention it here as a backup. Is xxxxxx up-to-date? Martin 02:15, 18 Jan 2004 (UTC)

Yes, thank you for posting it here in clear text for spam harvesters. Don't worry, although I deleted it, it's still available in the history, I'm sure the spiders will get to it. --Gutza 15:37, 22 Jan 2004 (UTC)
I can delete the history of the page if you'd like. *shrug*. I meant to use the X at Y obfuscation (as on wikien-l), but it seems I made a mistake. Ho hum. Martin 22:32, 22 Jan 2004 (UTC)

I emailed you re: arbitration, but your address bounced the email. Let me know if I should resend to a different address. Martin 19:26, 4 Feb 2004 (UTC)

I replied via e-mail to the address linked in your user's page (in the right-hand side of the page, towards the bottom). Yes, that e-mail is working fine, please try again. Gutza 22:49, 5 Feb 2004 (UTC)
Got your two emails, responded, forwarded. Strange. Martin 23:03, 5 Feb 2004 (UTC)

Iisus vs. Isus[edit]

Am o rugăminte. Poţi urmări discuţia de la articolul Iisus Hristos de pe Wikipedia Română ? Mie mi se pare firească forma cu doi II, pentru că aşa este folosită de către ortodocşii români, care sunt majoritari în ţară.

Eu sunt ateu, dar mie mi se pare firesc să folosim formele corecte (adică cele acceptate de populaţie). Eventual aş explica în articol de unde vin ambele forme, dar am decis să nu contribui nimic în rowiki pînă cînd nu se clarifică treaba aceasta (dacă articolele „aparţin” celor ce le-au creat).

Danke, Masi27185.

Seinfeld storytelling[edit]

Hi! I wished to tell you that your addition regarding the complex interwoven stories of Seinfeld is quite pertinent, thanks for writing it. This is indeed something I notice and admire about the Seinfeld show. Just a comment: in this sentence: "A nice exercise in this direction is to try to summarize the action in a random episode of the show reasonably accurate", should it not say "reasonably accurately" or "in a reasonably accurate way"? Also, is a suggestion of experiment appropriate for an encyclopedia article (and the use of the emotional, subjective term "nice")? Well, thanks again for your contributions! --Liberlogos 23:26, 17 Jun 2004 (UTC)


You wrote "no evidence". There's some evidence at User talk:JRR Trollkien...

Question about Lyndon LaRouche article[edit]

Dear Arbitration Committee:

I have read the following:

=== Remedies===

1) Original work which originates from Lyndon LaRouche and his movement may be removed from any Wikipedia article in which it appears other than the article Lyndon LaRouche and other closely related articles.

Passed with 5 of 6 active arbitrators on 2 August 2004. No votes against and no abstentions

3) User:Adam Carr is banned for one day for making a personal attack.

Passed with 5 of 6 active arbitrators on 2 August 2004. No votes against and no abstentions

4) Supporters of Lyndon LaRouche are instructed not to add references to Lyndon directly to articles except where they are highly relevant, and not to engage in activities that might be perceived as "promotion" of Lyndon LaRouche.

Passed with 5 of 6 active arbitrators on 2 August 2004. No votes against and no abstentions


1) Wikipedia users who engage in re-insertion of original research which originated with Lyndon LaRouche and his movement or engage in edit wars regarding insertion of such material shall be subject to ban upon demonstration to the Arbitration Committee of the offense.

Passed with 5 of 6 active arbitrators on 2 August 2004. No votes against and no abstentions

3) If an article is protected due to edit wars over the removal of Lyndon-related material, Admins are empowered (as an exception to normal protection policy) to protect the version which does not mention Lyndon LaRouche.

Passed with 5 of 6 active arbitrators on 2 August 2004. No votes against and no abstentions

I have attempted twice to restore this passage to the article:

Former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark has tried to clear LaRouche's name, arguing that investigators and political opponents had abused the legal process to eliminate him. Clark wrote in 1995, in a letter to then serving Attorney General Janet Reno: "I bring this matter to you directly, because I believe it involves a broader range of deliberate and systematic misconduct and abuse of power over a longer period of time in an effort to destroy a political movement and leader, than any other federal prosecution in my time or to my knowledge."[http:// exoneration/ clarkletter.htm]
In the early 1990s, while LaRouche was in prison, full page advertisements, calling for LaRouche to be exonerated, appeared in papers such as the New York Times and Washington Post. Among the signators were heads of state and cabinet-level officials from around the world, including Arturo Frondizi, former President of Argentina; leaders of the American Civil Rights Movement, including Amelia Boynton Robinson (the heroine of Bloody Sunday) and Rosa Parks; former Minnesota Senator and Democratic Presidential Candidate Eugene McCarthy; and prominent artists, such as violinist Norbert Brainin, former primarius of the Amadeus Quartet.
It is interesting, and perhaps puzzling, that these individuals came to the defense of a man who has been so universally condemned in the press throughout the English-speaking world.

It had been reverted by administrator Guanaco. When I replaced it he reverted it again, with the explanation that it was forbidden by the AC ruling. I put it back in, saying that I had read the AC ruling. Then it was reverted by administrator AndyL. Could you please explain how the ruling forbids this? The section is certainly factual and I think it makes the article more neutral. Weed Harper 14:19, 13 Aug 2004 (UTC)

arbitration matter[edit]

I would like to call your attention to the following, which indicates that Adam Carr has resumed his campaign of personal attacks, in defiance of the Arbitration Committee rulings:

"I have no objection to Snowspinner or some other User not previously involved attempting to write a compromise or composite article incorporating elements of the pro-LaRouche and anti-LaRouche articles. I am not optimistic of their chances of success (it will be like trying to write an article on evolution by merging a Darwinian article and a creationist article), but I am willing to wait and see what they come up with. I am emphatically not willing that Herschelkrustofsky should be the person to undertake this task, since he is not only a LaRouche cult member and thus a partisan in this controversy, but also a proved and notorious liar and slanderer. Anything he writes will be just another attempt to wheedle his lying LaRouche garbage into Wikipedia and will be immediately reverted. Adam 11:51, 16 Sep 2004 (UTC)" (from Talk:Political_views_of_Lyndon_LaRouche#The_Basic_Version)

--Herschelkrustofsky 15:13, 16 Sep 2004 (UTC)


As a courtesy, I wanted to let you know that I have raised the question of your continued participation on the Arbitration Committee at Wikipedia talk:Arbitration Committee. --Michael Snow 06:30, 7 Nov 2004 (UTC)


Hi Gutza, I'm writing because you were one of the editors on the Arbitration Committee who voted regarding the ruling on LaRouche activism in Wikipedia; see Wikipedia:Requests for arbitration/Lyndon LaRouche/Proposed decision.

If you have time, would you mind taking a look at Wikipedia talk:Requests for arbitration/Lyndon LaRouche/Proposed decision? Herschelkrustofsky has initiated a query of the Arbitration Committee for clarification of their ruling. I agree that clarification is needed, because I feel the wording of the ruling has left loopholes that the LaRouche supporters are exploiting. I have therefore written up a long response to Herschelkrustofsky's query and have requested clarification from the Committee on three specific points, as I feel this is an opportunity to put the matter to rest. I wondered whether you'd be prepared to comment on the page. If you don't have the time or inclination, however, don't worry about it. Many thanks, Slim 04:02, Dec 9, 2004 (UTC)

Article Licensing[edit]

Hi, I've started a drive to get users to multi-license all of their contributions that they've made to either (1) all U.S. state, county, and city articles or (2) all articles, using the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike (CC-by-sa) v1.0 and v2.0 Licenses or into the public domain if they prefer. The CC-by-sa license is a true free documentation license that is similar to Wikipedia's license, the GFDL, but it allows other projects, such as WikiTravel, to use our articles. Since you are among the top 2000 Wikipedians by edits, I was wondering if you would be willing to multi-license all of your contributions or at minimum those on the geographic articles. Over 90% of people asked have agreed. For More Information:

To allow us to track those users who muli-license their contributions, many users copy and paste the "{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}" template into their user page, but there are other options at Template messages/User namespace. The following examples could also copied and pasted into your user page:

Option 1
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions, with the exception of my user pages, as described below:


Option 2
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions to any [[U.S. state]], county, or city article as described below:

Or if you wanted to place your work into the public domain, you could replace "{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}" with "{{MultiLicensePD}}". If you only prefer using the GFDL, I would like to know that too. Please let me know what you think at my talk page. It's important to know either way so no one keeps asking. -- Ram-Man (comment| talk)

old Roma people dispute[edit]

Would you mind trying to resolve old dispute on the article?

A month or two ago someone with a website discovered Wikipedia and put his theories on the place. When I question basis for his edit I got called Nazi a that upset me that I do not want to touch this topic anymore.

The issues were about origin of Roma, about their estimated numbers and whether the promoted website has any relevancy in the real world. My findings are on Talk page on the article [1] (though I am mere programmer, not an expert on the topic).

Could you try to check out facts, fix what's needed and then remove the {{npov}} template from the site? Thanks. Pavel Vozenilek 00:11, 10 August 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello, Pavel!
I'd be happy to review your claims (which, I must say, look reasonable at first glance), but I honestly don't have the necessary time to do that right now (please don't take this personal, consider the time needed to go through all references and article+discussion history). I'll definitely try to look into this topic as soon as I have some time to invest in this, it really is a topic which intrigues and interests me as well anyway, and which I'd be happy to look further into.
Thank you for notifying me on the issue,
Gutza 02:11, 10 August 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi Gutza, I am having trouble keeping my data straight, particularly because of a lot of anonymous vitriol that seems to be going around. I'll be posting population data from multiple sources on my own talk page Usertalk:L_Hamm so that I can focus on that aspect. Comments? Thank you for your patience and taking the time to edit.

Hi, I'm actually part Hungarian but since me family includes members of the Hungarian minority in Romania and my father was called the zigany or Tsigany in his village, I think can shine my light on this topic. I've read your comment on Roma and although I do not agree with the strong feelings soem people have against these people I realise they are quite strong and are deeply embedded in culture. My mother told me that if a gyspy comes to your front door, you should close (and lock) the door and run to the backdoor cause they're probably out to steal from you. I don't have any negative experience with them myself, but know people who have. I think they have a fascinating culture, but it's in ocnflict with our European values. I think it would have been better not to place these comments but acknowledge that the majority thinks about htme this way. Jorgenpfhartogs 07:46, 19 August 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Romania vandalism[edit]

Hi Gutza, thanks for stepping in. I'm out now for the weekend, hopefully these kids are not going to ruin all Wikipedia meanwhile :o) If you have trouble with Hungarians anytime, I'm ready to help. KissL 16:55, 12 August 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hey, us software developers need to stick together in this cruel world! :-) On an unrelated note, I've obviously read your user page -- is your daughter killing you the same way ours is killing us? Ours is a few weeks younger (born on May 29), and we can just begin to see some signs of normal life on the horizon, but we're not there yet... --Gutza 19:37, 12 August 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Um, it seems I should have watchlisted your talkpage, sorry... :) In what way is your daughter killing you? We only had a really hard time with ours in the first 6-8 weeks, when she wanted a meal every 3 - 3.5 hours, but since then, she usually goes to sleep at 10pm and gets up only at 7am, which leaves us more or less enough time to sleep at night, and then whatever she's up to during the day, it is already easy (or so we feel, after those first weeks...) Of course this is not to say that I couldn't lie down just anywhere and sleep for two entire days on end, but at least the backlog is not increasing anymore :) KissL 10:44, 17 August 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Waited for almost two weeks before answering, as to be able to speak from (almost) the same position (remember, ours was just past the 6-8 weeks threshold when I wrote the original message). You're right, things are becoming pretty stable and all right -- ours still wakes up once for milk in the night, but overall, at least it's predictable. And she's also crying a lot less -- this is what I meant by "killing you", ours wanted constant attention when not asleep, which, if you haven't experienced it, is quite exhausting.

Thank you very much. Truly. -- Jmabel | Talk 04:53, August 14, 2005 (UTC)

Your name[edit]

Just a quick inquiry about your name: are you a fan of Nicolae Gutza? Manelist? You certainly sound like a knowledgeable, polite and honest person, which is quite atypical for manelists. My guess is that your name is actually ironical, but I'd rather hear it from you than make any false assumptions. Havee a great day, whatever your musical preferences. 11:47, 15 August 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Google is your friend -- it's completely unrelated, I used "Gutza" as a nickname long before Nicolae Guta became public, I was not going to stop using it because of that guy. I still have occasional "problems" with Romanians ("manelistule!"), but that's usually easily fixed. --Gutza 11:05, 17 August 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I am so incredibly glad to hear that. Seeing as you are an active member of Wikipedia and the sysop for the Romanian version, I was troubled that my "fate" as a Wikipedian was in the hands of a manelist. Thanks for the answer. Cheers! 11:22, 17 August 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Are you honest?[edit]

If you are truly honest, you must admit that you are violating the Wikipedia policy by adding statements like "It was suggested that..." If you have some PROOF that Roma have in early times practised some form of Hinduism, please PROVIDE the RELIABLE sources, otherwise, don't mislead people with UN-SCIENTIFIC statetments! If you don't like that Roma are NOT HINDU and HAVE NEVER BEEN, there's nothing we can do for you, as we don't intend to adopt such religion.

Hi, I'd like to start Wikipedia:Requests for comment/User conduct on User: edits of Roma people. Would you co-sign and include your attempts to convince him peacefuly? --Wikimol 15:33, 5 September 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]


You my friend, need to take a friendly visit to the PHP manual! The issue is about what is written in the PHP Documentation. I would have hoped you would have read the documentation before considering a revert. I have also made a post in the Talk page so you can consider the implications yourself. Essentially, print is not a function it is a language construct and therefore does not require parentheses. Including them not only makes the program more complex but teaches bad programming habits. One might eventually consider it a function, that may or may not return a value, and then proceed to code a line such as $var = print('hello world');. Do you see where I'm going with this? Thanks for reading it up in the manual. Quadra23 Sep 7, 2005.

Wikipedia Moldoveneasca[edit]

Nu au vrut sa puna la socoteala votul tau ptr. ca zicea node( sysopul de atunci si de acum) ca inca nu ai contribuit la wikipedia inaite de a vota. Insa deja ai contribuit prin comentarile tale deci ar trebui ca acum sa poti sa votezi pe data de Oct 1. ptr. alegerile noului sysop.

In esenta batalia este intre romanofobul node( care nici macar nu stie limba "moldoveneasca") si Jeorjika un romanofon din moldova.

Domnu Goie 02:29, 21 September 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Buna Gutza,
Obviously the choice is yours, but I hope you see domnul Goie's accusations for what they really are. He says I don't speak the language, even though I have written articles in it. He also calls me a "românofob". Considering you and I have met before, I think you can judge that on your own. But please keep in mind that he accused me on other peoples' user talkpages of being an ex-KGB Smirnovist agent.
And, in regards to Jeorjika, he only has about 10 contributions to mo.wikipedia, and none to any other Wiki. He hasn't resurfaced in the past couple of days, and I wonder if he hasn't already moved on.
Ahh, and let me add that my primary concern is the future of mo.wikipedia, NOT keeping power as some have said. No matter who wins, I will be happy so long as they keep the promises they made.
Cheers. --Node

Salut. Te-am contactat pt avem serioase probleme la articolul wikipedian despre Romanians. Dupa cum vezi, user-ii Jayig si administratorul SlimVirgin au pus cele mai joase cifre posibile. Cand am incercat sa intervin, punand numerele adevarate, am fost blocat pt "vanadalism", asa trebuie ca toti wikipedistii Romani sa facem ceva. Daca te intereseaza si vrei sa te alaturi, da-mi un email sau scrie pe pagina talk Romanians. Numai bine, NorbertArthur 2 Aprilie 2006

Above: NorbertArthur is telling me that Jayig and SlimVirgin are using the lowest possible population estimates in article Romanians. Noted, thank you -- I've been there before (i.e. in a similar dispute on another article), but on the "other" side. I believe in their approach: census data is all we should use, and being a member of a community doesn't give you special powers or special knowledge unless you can back it up. Sorry I can't be more sympathetic, but that's simply what I believe in. --Gutza T T+ 12:43, 3 April 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

cerer de blocare[edit]

Buna Gutza! Te deranjez pe pagina ta de talk pt ca sincer nu prea stiu cum trebuie procedat in astfel. user:Alexander007 mi-a adus insulte si a vandalizat pagina mea personala, asa ca as vrea sa fie blocat pt asta. Poti sa vezi aici ce a facut:[[2]],[[3]], [[4]]. Te rog frumos sa te uiti ce a scris Alexander007 acolo si cum ne-a insultat. Mersi si toate cele bune, NorbertArthur 13 April 2006


Salut Gutza. I directed one insult towards Norbert AFAIK, only after he did this: he assumed I could not read Romanian, so in English on my talk page he says he is not interested in having user:Romania unblocked; then one minute later, on User talk:Romania, he says he will do what it takes to get him unblocked. This disgusted me, and considering Wikipedia's policies, I overreacted and delivered this insult: "You're lame, Nobert. Move the fuck on." If you count me calling him a liar, that is two insults. However, I do not understand why Norbert later interpreted my statement "you liar" as referring to something on his user page, which is not the case. After he lied to me (it is not a case of him changing his mind one minute later, AssumingGoodFaith has its limits) about user:Romania, I got mad at him and retaliated by removing images that according to fair use policy probably don't belong, just as the 007 logo was removed from my page (exact same fair use policy). I certainly intended no vandalism, however, because I have seen such images removed without warning on numerous occasions. Of my insults to the sockpuppets of Bonaparte (see User talk:Bonaparte/sockpuppetry), there is no need to comment; I simply don't care. You may decide to issue a block if you want, but I was acting in the best interests of the Romanian Wikipedia community and of Wikipedia itself. User:Anittas on a regular basis delivers worse insults to all kinds of contributors, Romanian and otherwise, but is rarely blocked; though this is no excuse, of course. My objective is that User:Romania is to remain permanently blocked, and you can check User talk:Romania and User talk:Alexander 007 why, and I acted a bit "ruthlessly" in pursuit of my objective. Alexander 007 04:23, 14 April 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

As an example of how strict the fair use policy is, an admin, User:Jkelly, removed the Wu-Tang Clan logo from Template:Wu-Tang Clan a few weeks ago. Alexander 007 04:23, 14 April 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Salut Gutza tu cati romani crezi ca sunt in lume? Eu si cu Norbert credem ca sunt peste 34 milioana. Avem si surse bune in acest fel, nu il poti bloca pe omul acela care il blocheaza pe norbert? --Chisinau 15:05, 15 April 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

A inceput un vot pentru stergerea "Wikipediei Moldovenesti", o creatie a unui American, cu origini suspecte in Basarabia si care nu vorbeste limba wikipediei la care pretinde a fi sysop. Il cheama Node ue si pentru a crea impresia ca lumea doreste aceasta wikipedie, a apelat la toti utilizatorii rusi care au venit sa voteze de partea lui desi nu cunosc bine subiectul si li s-a spus ca voteaza pentru supravietuirea alfabetului chirilic. Asa a ajuns ca votul sa fie 31 pentru stergerea Mo wiki, si 42 impotriva stergerii - deci in alte cuvinte pentru pastrarea wikipediei in limba "moldoveneasca".

Wikipedia:Naming conventions (geographic names)[edit]


am revenit pe wikipedia, si primul lucru pe care lam facut a fost sa incerc sa solutzionez problema Talk:Harghita County topicul Wikipedia:Naming conventions (geographic names) din paginile despre Counties of Romania. am sters numele magyare ale diviziunilor administrative ale regatului magyar trecute ca nume alternativ pt numele diviziunilor administrative ale Romaniei in paragraful de inceput, in conformitate cu conventziile stabilite de wikipedia. Wikipedia:Naming conventions (geographic names)

anul trecut am incercat sa solutzionez aceeasi problema dar din cauza ca nu am comunicat bine cu ceilaltzi editori romani, lucruruile au capatat un aspect superficial de "reglementat" (ma refer la Talk:Harghita/Vote)

nu shtiu daca ai fost in cunostintza de cauza cu votul privind numele alternativ al judetzului Harghita.

te informez (si voi informa si altzi editori romani) despre aceasta intentzie a mea de a reglementa articolele referitoare la Romania in acord cu conventziile enciclopediilor renumite.

de forma "riul Mures are nume alternativ Maros deoarece curge si prin Ungaria, judetzul Mures nu are nume alternativ Maros pt ca nu este impartzit de Romania cu Ungaria" Criztu 11:33, 10 July 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Banat article is not about Romanian Banat, but about entire Banat that belong to 3 countries. Map of Romania is placed in section named Romanian Banat which speak about it. I mean, if you speak about entire Banat, then you post map of entire Banat, if you speak about Romanian Banat only, then you post only map of Romanian Banat, etc. That is generally accepted look of the content of every article. So, please, do not revert this again, ok? PANONIAN (talk) 01:26, 16 July 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Absolute Color Space[edit]

Hi, I was looking at information for color spaces, and saw alot of links to absolute color space. I found content on that was from wikipedia, so I restored the content. Subsequently, I found your post on User:Notinasnaid regarding the request for deletion. I searched for a bit and was unable to find the archive of the request, so I though I should contact you to see if you have a link to it. Thanks, TJJFV 17:55, 14 August 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sorry for the late reply, but I was on vacation. You can't find any RfD because I asked for speedy deletion within the article. You can ask an administrator to dig the old content for you. My claim was basically that the very concept of absolute color space was nonsense. Apparently everybody agreed, so it was deleted. --Gutza T T+ 18:36, 27 August 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Me again. In case you're wondering why I'm claiming the article was nonsense, try (a) to define "absolute color space" in relationship to color space and color model, and (b) try finding a non-Wikipedia definition for "absolute color space" on the net. --Gutza T T+ 18:41, 27 August 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Could you dually license [6] under a Creative Commons license? The GFDL technically requires that any use of the material must be accompanied by a reproduction of the entire text of the license. While this is fine for a book, a manual, or an encyclopedia as a whole, it is largely unworkable for images or for reproducing a single article (in which the license text may be triple the size of the content). Also, I have used this image for the Example image used on the English Wikipedia, which shows up whenever someone clicks on the Insert image button in the edit window, and which may be viewed at [7]. —Centrxtalk • 00:34, 8 December 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

On Rowiki[edit]

Hi. I have never "thrashed around" rowiki, and did not complain to administrators about it (I have first asked them to take a stance on what has happened in here, and I am frankly pondering asking Jimbo for input, which seems to have been done in similar cases). Frankly, I have good reasons to despise the very fabric of many articles in there, and do so while reproaching to many admins over there the blatant fact that they all too often lack competence to identify and remove defamatory and fallacious content. I have approached admins there, and I have been approached by them. To the best of my knowledge, they form four categories in respect to this topic: admins who no longer contribute (in fact, one of them signaled to me a grossly antisemitic and article which has just been given approval by other admins!), admins who are not paying attention, admins who are not capable to identify the content, and admins who take part in the charade (one of the latter, in answer to a direct complaint, has trolled on my page here, and has let his friend Bonaparte use my IP's page on rowiki as his personal playground!). Add to this that even in cases where the topic is not at all controversial, rowiki is way below the standard demanded here; this does not mean that a lot of new information remains unchecked or unsorted, but that it is tolerated, endorsed, and even gets featured status while remaining inane, subjective, and, in some cases, not even properly wikified.

Please understand that the rot reaches too far to be solved without ample and exhausting debate. I think you will agree that what I do here is valuable enough not to have to leave it aside in order to engage in that sordid debate about stating the obvious. Also note that, having received such messages, I'd rather comment from the side than, to put it bluntly, do what you admins have pledged to be doing.

From what I know about you, you are a competent editor and admin. Just as there was no implication of your activities in my critique, there is no requirement for you to defend rowiki other than as a whole (I assure you your argument would be untenable otherwise). Dahn 19:38, 12 January 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Your last message reads like an assumption of guilt on my part.
First of all, I wish to point out that it does not take expertise to detect blatant racism and unchecked language, nor to enforce wikipedia regulations (it is assumed that admins have understood them when they became admins). There is also no excuse for the repeated support for vandalism on the part of some admins.
Secondly, there is no requirement for me to take whatever steps in order to ensure that guidelines stepped over in such nonchalant manner are enforced, when it is known to me that admins have been watching those pages. Also, as I have tried to point out, if admins have tolerated insults aimed at me by a person who was banned as a vandal and sockpuppeteer on enwiki, Also consider that, in case the matters of racism were not already clear to admins there, you are asking me to basically go and convince them, all of them, that they were wrong! Instead, I am sounding up the alarm with admins who have proven themselves competent. Dahn 20:27, 12 January 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you for your offer, but there are several reasons why I would rather continue this here. One of them is that I do not contend to make this a debate about wiki in general, but about its stringent problems. Note that, although I have expressed a will to have rowiki started anew, the attention of editors could actually go a long way in preventing such radical measures, if they are ever to be proposed. I have never policed rowiki, but incidents such as Leonte Tismăneanu, and dialogs with several users (such as the other ongoing one on my page) have led me to understand that rowiki is still far from achieving its most essential goals.
(I'll erase the personal detail you made public on my page, unless you specifically tell me not to.) Dahn 20:36, 12 January 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
No, I'm saying that I do not enjoy entering debates with people who cannot find their way around simple wikipedia rules, and that I cannot possibly have a conversation of one against many just to prove the most obvious of points. Hard evidence? ro:Republica Socialistă Sovietică Evreiască, ro:Valter Roman, ro:Ghizela Vass, ro:Corneliu Zelea Codreanu. Dahn 20:49, 12 January 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I see. No problem. (Btw, when I was looking through problematic articles on rowiki, I noticed some of them had been tagged for NPOV, which means things are moving in the right direction. Btw, I stress my belief thsat inflammatory and sourious content such as ro:Evrei comunişti should be deleted outright, not tagged.) Dahn 20:52, 12 January 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

There are other major objections I have. Consider that ro:Ion Luca Caragiale is an FA,although it does not cite any sources, does not clarify who said what and where, does not have a neutral tone, and largely reads like a rudimentary cliché work by 8th grade students (I suspect a large part of it was copied from standard literary comments of manuals and the likes of A huge number of articles in the literary section display a tone that can be detected by anyone as POV, and feature the most of whimsical statements. I could cite the example of ro:Radu Tudoran (see my comment on ro:Discuţie:Radu Tudoran, posted in November - nothing of which was ever answered, despite contributors still working on it, and nothing was done about the manifest problems; as I have said, there are tens of articles like that solely in that area, and I know that many of them have been checked several times over by admins, without any obvious result). Dahn 22:04, 12 January 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sorry, I had not noticed the first part of your last reply, and thus failed to answer. The "Evrei" list should not even be there, since it is created with a certain goal in mind - that of "proving" something about a community in its entirety (collective responsability, for better or worse, is a non sequitur in an NPOV text), and the text itself is phantasmagoria; a lot of the articles I also linked stem from the same debased reasoning, one almost universally rejected by historians (by which I also mean the majority of Romanian historians). Dahn 23:23, 12 January 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
If you chjeck with an earlier version of that list, you will see precisely why it was created Let me also note that it is currently an article, and there is no way of having an article on "Communist Jews" or "Turkish Liberals" (perhaps categories, lists etc., but not articles); as an aside that article is Romania-oriented. English wikipedia does not have such articles or such statements in article. Instead, it has this: Jewish Bolshevism, which begins with identifying the phenomenon as a conspiracy theory.

I see that your habits are very much like the edit style (I'm an admin, I do what I want). I do not want to have my name there, and this is justifiable, given the gravity of the accusations involved. Dpotop 00:01, 13 January 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
For God's sake, D, be lenient. I have explained that it was a misunderstanding. Gutza not only accused you based on a mere problem with message order on Jmabel's page, he later retracted! Not only that, but striking your name out, instead of deleting it, is a customary measure of record keeping - since part of the conversation just below the mention of your name was me telling him that I was not talking about you, and since he didn't take the same liberty you did of erasing someone else's message, it was the best way to admit to an innocent mistake without making the text confusing for other readers.

Please check your Rfa


Hi Gutza,

I tried your new improved quickUnwatch, and it works perfect in my watchlist now, for all pages. A little bug, which has no real effect but you might find interesting: The "-w" also show up when I go to the Special:Watchlist/edit page. However, on this page, the "-w" still doesn't show up for pages where I've watched the talk page and the user page doesn't exist (which is almost exclusively user talk pages I've left warnings on). I've also watchlisted a nonexistant page (so I'll know if someone ever creates it again), and that doesn't have a "-w" either. Since this is on the edit page, where I can unwatch by clicking the box, it has no practical effect whatsoever, but I thought I'd mention it in case you found it interesting.

Thanks again for making that, I'll be using it heavily. Amazing the stuff you can find by accident around here... --barneca (talk) 15:44, 31 January 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

wpStarttime not served[edit]

From Wikipedia_talk:Creating_a_bot#wpStarttime_not_served :

… Everything's working great, except the edit page I retrieve in order to get the token and the rest of the variables doesn't contain wpStarttime and wpEdittime. I get this:

<input type='hidden' value="" name="wpStarttime" />
<input type='hidden' value="" name="wpEdittime" />

If I retrieve the page with wget, I do get them (but of course with wget I'm not logged in; my script does get authenticated first). If I retrieve the page with a browser, I do get them. But if I retrieve the page with PHP's curl, nada. That obviously leads to edit conflicts and nil results. So, what gives?

It does.
I. Preserve the section Entitled "History", Preserve its Title, and add to it an item stating at least the title, year, new authors, and publisher of the Modified Version as given on the Title Page. If there is no section Entitled "History" in the Document, create one stating the title, year, authors, and publisher of the Document as given on its Title Page, then add an item describing the Modified Version as stated in the previous sentence.

While I can't see that argument going anywhere it is irrelivant. The GFDL only talks about authors when dealing with a new history.

Did you know[edit]

Good morning! On 9/25/08 I self nominated an article I wrote on that date for "Did you know." Battle of Blanco Canyon No one ever ruled one way or the other - I am curious why it appears to be the only article that was not found to be eligible, et al.

Well, I did what I could. Let me also thank you for the kind words you left on my talk page. Today reminded me of my old days on Plinul cel tanar (talk) 16:16, 1 October 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Re: Wikidea and WP:RBI[edit]

You should see WP:RBI. Three very good letters, those RBI. I especially like I. It seems to be very helpful in this case. Cheers! 21:09, 3 October 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'm not sure what you mean (honest), and I'm not sure you can explain further. Thank you for the intention, though. --Gutza T T+ 21:15, 3 October 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]


I'd still like to see the original complaint (I couldn't find it, because it'd be taken down). The problem is, Gutza, that although you say "you always lose" when you make personal attacks, by blocking, you grant a little victory to the undesirables on Wikipedia. There's a saying in an area of English law called equity that someone who makes a claim must come with "clean hands" - in other words, if you want to complain about others then you have to be doing the right thing yourself. I think you do need to adjudicate in these situations, however tiresome that might be. All those things you quoted at me: that was after a long build up over a long period of time, and look at what it was responding to. I bet he had a right old laugh after he saw your block. Wikidea 21:56, 3 October 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Btw, did you see this? Wikidea 22:00, 3 October 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I know you're trying to do the right thing, and of course I understand where you're coming from. I'm disappointed that good editors get divided by bad editors. Anyway, let's leave it at that. Wikidea 22:51, 3 October 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks for your message there Gutza. We'll see where it goes, if anything. As I said, I don't like these things. Wikidea 01:06, 4 October 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Delete requests[edit]

Could you, please, delete the following:

Thank you very much. Dc76\talk 11:34, 5 November 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sorry, don't have the time to look into these properly and I don't want to rush into deleting them. The only one I would've deleted on request was already deleted (your mistakenly created article). --Gutza T T+ 12:11, 5 November 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
If I may, Dc76, you can tag the categories for deletion yourself per WP:CSD#C1 if they have been unpopulated for at least four days. --AmaltheaTalk 12:13, 5 November 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
In fact, I just wanted to pass the issue to someone so that I can think of something else. There is not rush. Also, I don't even now how to tag a cat for deletion, despite being around for quite a while. :) What tag should I insert? Dc76\talk 12:18, 5 November 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Please see Amalthea's reply above, you should be able to find the data starting from there (I don't know either). --Gutza T T+ 13:10, 5 November 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Just stick {{db-c1}} or {{db-catempty}} on the page, give a meaningful edit summary, and consider notifying the creators of the categories. --AmaltheaTalk 13:46, 5 November 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Excellent, thank you very much. Dc76\talk 20:53, 5 November 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Oh, I see you already deleted 2 of them. As for the last one, i removed the redirect, since it does not work for categories. But the category itself can stay, even empty, since it is present for all other countries. Similar to a category "Ports in X", where X is landlocked. In theory, the country can aquire access to the sea in the future... OK, as of now, this issue is closed. Thank you very much, both of you, for help and for letting me know how to do such things in the future. Dc76\talk 21:00, 5 November 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Based on the discussion in this article's talk page, I made a proposal [9] and gave its rationale [10]. 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 00:53, 9 November 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

SineBot test[edit]


You might need to use {{YesAutosign}}, you could be excluded per "It will ignore unsigned comments from people with lots of edits, as it assumes that they should know better by that point."1) Of course I have no idea how many "lots of edits" actually are, it's quite as possible that adding two sections at once is too much for it, or that it never signs anything you put on your own talk page. :)
Cheers, and sorry for the stalking, AmaltheaTalk 22:57, 30 November 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Stalking Is Good (tm). (I am joking, stalking isn't good, it's just that I appreciated Amalthea's input on this; I do not condone stalking; this was intended as humor/satire; any constructs that may or may not imply that I am endorsing stalking shall be treated as personal attacks and shall be dealt with as such; this in turn is a joke/satire as well, to the extent that a reasonable Wikipedian able of critical thinking construes it as such within the bounds of logic.) --Gutza T T+ 23:07, 30 November 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hehehe, you know what? SineBot is simply down since this morning, hasn't edited since 5am. :) I was wondering myself since I saw lot's of unsigned comments today.

Letters to the editor[edit]

Can you explain why you removed a sourced letter-to-the-editor from a peer-reviewed journal in Aspartame controversy as not a reliable source while further down in the article another letter to the editor is allowed to stay, linked to this: Double standards? Biased administrators? Immortale (talk) 23:04, 19 January 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Don't forget COI and being payed by the industry, if you want to include all bad faith assumptions. The EHP letter is properly identified as a letter in the body of the article, your reference purported to be factual. But then again, this is an editorial decision, and since I didn't take or threaten to take any administrative action I don't see why you're dragging my status as an admin into the discussion. --Gutza T T+ 23:19, 19 January 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Ram pump image[edit]

Were you the creator of the diagram on Ram pump? (Figure 2) If so, nice work! On the talk page, there a discussion of another page that uses the same diagram and the same text, and was either plagiarized by WP, or plagiarized from WP. It looks to me like the latter, but I thought you might be able to shed some light on it.

Notice of change[edit]

Hello. You are receiving this message because of a recent change to the administrator policy that alters what you were told at the time of your desysopping. The effect of the change is that if you are inactive for a continuous three year period, you will be unable to request return of the administrative user right. This includes inactive time prior to your desysopping if you were desysopped for inactivity and inactive time prior to the change in policy. Inactivity is defined as the absence of edits or logged actions. Until such time as you have been inactive for three years, you may request return of the tools at the bureaucrats' noticeboard. After you have been inactive for three years, you may seek return of the tools only through WP:RFA. Thank you. MBisanz talk 00:20, 4 December 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The article Digital reproduction has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Basically a dicdef. Can't find any indication this is a specific term of art that would require its own Wikipedia article.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. ♠PMC(talk) 03:59, 18 May 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

You file is actually YCCK, not CMYK, how to fix thumbnail?[edit]

Your file here is a very cool example of very rare color space, that caused bugs in ffmpeg and chrome (also because of embedded ICC profile, but APP14 Adobe marker that signals YCCK what the most problematic). I see that Wikipedia thumbnailer failed to provide a proper thumbnail, is there a way to fix it? (talk) 01:03, 22 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

This is very interesting; I double-checked now with Adobe CC, and the raw file at is interpreted as CMYK. I had no idea it's actually something else; even judging by the filename you can tell I always ever intended it to be CMYK, not some exotic format. --Gutza T T+ 09:23, 22 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
