Well sorry for not giving a reason for my deletion. Maybe if you read what I deleted from the article for yourself you'd see that it was because it was bullshit. What I deleted was a distorted re-telling of the Spanish Civil War which had almost nothing to do with Zaragoza itself. Note also the contributor who had written that also vandalized another page. --Achnash (talk) 02:43, 23 July 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi, good catch with the copyvio, but I thought I ought to let you know for the future that speedy deletion tags go on the article page rather than the talk page :) happy editing SGGH speak! 10:33, 1 February 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]


I have granted rollback rights to your account; the reason for this is that after a review of some of your contributions, I believe I can trust you to use rollback correctly by using it for its intended usage of reverting vandalism, and that you will not abuse it by reverting good-faith edits or to revert-war. For information on rollback, see Wikipedia:New admin school/Rollback and Wikipedia:Rollback feature. If you do not want rollback, just let me know, and I'll remove it. Good luck and thanks. –Juliancolton Tropical Cyclone 19:38, 16 January 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Bon dia/Hi, pots ajudar-nos?Edit

Hello, I hope you're doing fine and I sincerely apologize for this intrusion. My name is Claudi Balaguer (User Capsot from the Catalan Wikipedia and the Occitan Wikiccionari), I've just read your profile and it seemed to me that you show a keen interest in diverse cultures and languages and since you live in Catalonia you understand very well what are a minorized language and culture and maybe I am not bothering you and you will help us... I'm a member of a Catalan association "Amical de la Viquipèdia" which is trying to get some recognition as a Catalan Chapter but this hasn't been approved up to that moment. We would appreciate your support, visible if you stick this on your first page and/or signing the link within the template: Wikimedia CAT. Que et/vos vaja tot bé. Et/vos desitge un estiu dolç, agradable i assolellat, cordialment.

Greetings AdeMiami - just saw your revert at Toast (honor). I stand corrected. I had previously reverted (twice, I think) another editor for what I took to be an unnecessary change, so now I'll have to go back and apologise - with "s" :) Cheers! --Technopat (talk) 11:52, 6 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Oleguer Presas - ReplyEdit

Hi there ADE, VASCO from Portugal here,

Yes i see your point, and the article also speaks volumes on his political approach/views. However, as Catalonia is not independent, as neither is the Basque Country and so on and so on, i think it's only logical to say "Spanish footballer", "Spanish naming customs", Oleguer, and those who think like him, are Spanish whether they like it or not - and no i'm not endorsing Salva Ballesta's approach either! The name IS indeed 100% Catalan, but where is the region located?

Second part: the shouting. Yes i should tone down on (some of) my summaries i know, but i'm getting ever so tired of vandals and punks who ruin other people's work. Some - speaking of the geographic "stuff", mostly regarding birthplace - go as far as to remove the words "Catalonia" or akin in the players' articles, even if they are followed by "is a SPANISH footballer"...Pityful, have zero patience for vandals!

All that said, sorry for any incovenience that might have disturbed your contributions, happy weekend - --Vasco Amaral (talk) 18:09, 21 January 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Puig i Cadafalch and other modernisme architectsEdit

Hi, the Puig i Cadafalch article I have not finished is that I'm also too busy in real life, I study at university and do other activities, I have not finished yet, but if I just started yesterday, and it was too late due that it is poorly translated, but if you look at other articles that have expanded through the translation, you will realize that is quite understandable and you are exaggerating. I hope when you re-enter at another talk page do not forget to sign. --Venerock (talk) 15:43, 26 March 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Spanish CatalanEdit

Yes, Spanish Catalan is as strange as using "British Scottish", but so far it serves to find a neutral solution. Honestly, I think it would be better to use "Catalan" alone, because it is more precise, and because Artur Mas is the president of Catalonia. If people keep deleting Catalan, maybe we should block anonymous IP addresses on that article. Let's wait and see.--Jordiferrer (talk) 12:39, 9 May 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Lombardy confusionEdit

"Lombards" disappeared as entity and culture from modern Lombardy in the 8th century. That's why it is improper to link to them there. Give a check to Lombard architecture. Also the correct word, from what I know, is "polychrome", not polychromed. --'''Attilios''' (talk) 12:52, 25 September 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • I agree with you... The link I put was not so correct but I didn't find anything better at the moment. What I think you were meaning is Romanico lombardo (since we're speaking about 11th century, when the Lombards were far gone as a culture from Lombardy area), say, "Lombard(y) Romanesque" (meaning: Romanesque architecture in Lombardy), but unfortunately there's no article on it for now. It'd be a nice idea to start it to fill our gap. Perhaps we could fill it with a pipelined link to Romanesque architecture in Italy. What do you think? --'''Attilios''' (talk) 07:34, 26 September 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    • Yes, I think the big problem is that the Italian/German "Longobardi"/"Langbeard" is translated in English as "Lombards"... this causing endless confusion with the later Lombard (Italian-speaking) civilization which ensued and was rather unrelated with it, apart from the name of the region... As a curiosity, also Florence or Genoa were "Lombard" cities during their rule, but no one could believe that the two cities in the Middle Ages (at least from the 9th/10th century onwards) has something to share with the Germanic people. As for the article, it'd be a nice idea to collaborate at it next week. Let me know and perhaps I'll start a rough translation which you can help to improve and define, or vice versa. I'm also out at Pistoia for work this week and cannot do much until weekend. Ciao and good work!! --'''Attilios''' (talk) 09:33, 26 September 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Antoni Gaudí - GA reviewEdit

Hi AdeMiami, I saw that you're the top contributor to the article on Antoni Gaudí. It's been nominated for GA and I'm currently reviewing it. The nominator and I have been polishing it and I am about to pass it after giving it one more copy-edit. I thought you may be interested to participate (the GA review is here), and I encourage you to submit this article for FA once we're done because I think it wouldn't take much to get it on the front page (and Gaudí certainly deserves it!). In fact, Antoni Gaudí is a level 4 vital article topic and architecture and Catalan subjects are both underrepresented on the front page so it would certainly not have long to wait before making it to Today's Featured Article after the FA process.

Palau Reial de PedralbesEdit

At Palau Reial de Pedralbes, you wrote "and a s in the shape of a Chinese dragon" . Is there an "s" is visible at the image of that fountain ? If you check this other image, we see what it seems a nozzle with the shape of a chinese dragon. Shall we then use "and a nozzle in the shape of a Chinese dragon"?--Jordiferrer (talk) 10:42, 14 November 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Thankyou for your support on the Spsin talk page. I feel a bit isolated and need to believe I'm not the only one who's keeping an eye out on the history section of the Spain page. It's interesting looking back at its talk page just a few minutes ago to discover that Alex320000 (who I suspect is Cristiano Tomás) has suddenly got his own user page. His wish to get rid of the galleon image and text relating the artistic and intellectual achievements of Spain's golden age are central concerns as I've constantly had to fight off many attempts to impose a totally negative representation of Spanish history. In other words, I need to believe that there are others helping to keep a watch and ready to intervene if necessary in my absence. If you could find others willing to check the history section from time to time, it would be a great help. Anyway, thankyou for your kind words. Cheers.

Oleguer Presas i GuíxolsEdit

Bon dia, avui has revertit el fet que jo ahir tregués de l'historial d'Oleguer Presas que està jugant actualment al Guíxols indicant que no havia explicat el perquè. La informació és totalment falsa, va sortir d'un mitjà local el Dia dels Innocents ( i altres mitjans de dubtosa credibilitat ho van reproduir sense comprovar que era una innocentada.

Em va sorprendre veure en un lloc que ho indicava, ho vaig buscar, vaig veure que era fals i ho vaig treure de les Wikipedies on sortia indicat. No és fals només pel fet que la notícia sortís pel Dia dels Innocents, sinó que per assegurar-ho del tot vaig buscar a la Federació Catalana de Futbol i no hi apareix ni a la llista de jugadors del Guíxols ( ni a les actes dels partits que vaig consultar de l'equip.

No ho he tornat a revertir perquè ja vaig tenir problemes un cop per tornar a revertir una informació falsa que quedava clarament desaprovada i per la politització del wikipedista en qüestió, em va bloquejar tot i que posteriorment un altre wikipedista va posar la informació correcta que indicava jo. No dic ni molt menys que sigui el mateix cas (ja has indicat que era perquè no ho havia justificat i aquí ho he fet), però així em curo en salut. Així doncs, deixo en les teves mans retirar de l'historial d'Oleguer que està jugant al Guíxols ja que és una informació falsa.

Salut. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:18, 15 October 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Fet, gràcies per la justificació AdeMiami (talk) 16:19, 15 October 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • I reinstated it because it was referenced ("resuelve Oleguer, que pese a contar con sólo 32 años de edad presta sus servicios a un equipo de la regional catalana, el A.D. Guixols." said the newspaper article which i retrieved as ref). However, judging from your conversation above - my Catalan is very very limited but i got the gist of it - it seems it was a hoax. Out of respect for you two, i will revert me now.

Sorry for any inconvenience, keep up the good work - --AL (talk) 23:45, 17 October 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Catalan culture ChallengeEdit

Hello! I've seen that you are one of the main editors of the Antoni Gaudí article and I just want to inform you that the article is featured at the the Catalan Culture Challenge, a Wikipedia editing contest in which victory will go to those who start and improve the greatest number of articles about 50 key figures of Catalan culture. It goes from March 16 to April 15. You can take part by creating or expanding articles on these people in your native language (or any other one you speak). It would be lovely to have you on board. :-) Amical Wikimedia --Kippelboy (talk) 07:12, 15 March 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
