Dear Duja...Edit

May I disturb your peace with another word (possibly obsure Croatian slang again): otrcanu politikansku floskulu = banal politician's ? (accusative case?). Nadam se da sve je dobro stobom. SaundersW (talk) 17:48, 20 November 2007 (UTC)

It's not slang, but it's slightly obscure (my dictionary doesn't list it); I can't recall the exact English term though. It means "empty idiom/phrase/expression", and always has negative meaning—the thingo that is repeated so much in the political speech that it lost any meaning, you know. "Otrcan" means more "worn out" than "banal" (although the latter also works); my dictionary suggests "trite".
I'm going to a wikibreak, so it will probably be more efficient to use e-mail. Duja 07:44, 21 November 2007 (UTC)

Hello :-)Edit

I see you put a notice on my talk page that I'm on a wikibreak. Very nice of you, therefore, you get to be the first person to be informed of my comeback. Just so you know. --Dijxtra (talk) 19:36, 25 November 2007 (UTC)

Buffy the Vampire Slayer (TV series)Edit

Hi. I noticed that you closed a discussion regarding the naming of the above article, where you concluded:

  • that the TV series is the primary usage of the phrase "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", and
  • that there should be a seperate disambiguation page.

However, you also chose to leave the primary topic article at Buffy the Vampire Slayer (TV series) and have the primary topic redirect to it. As you acknowledged in your closing summary, this is clearly not in line with naming conventions.

I have attempted to move the article to Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and have been reverted and now the page is move protected. My position is that:

Note also that with judicious use of {{otheruses1}} - - the dab header in the main article makes it entirely clear to readers what article they have reached and where they need to head to if they've arrived at the wrong place.

So, if you wouldn't mind, I'd like you to contribute to the discussion here and, in particular, let us know if there's any strong reason why naming conventions should be ignored in this case and, if there isn't, give your backing to my naming scheme. Evidently you know I have the guidelines on my side as you wrote that your closure was a "rotten compromise, and it goes against NCs". My point is that it does and without good reason.

This is in no way a complaint, merely a hopeful request that you could help solve the inevitable impasse. The editor who has "got there way" will probably just sit back now content with the "outcome" :) --kingboyk (talk) 17:58, 6 December 2007 (UTC)


I just wanted to tell u I have quit wikipedia, and i hope taht i would be allowed to delete a fragment of your talk page in archive six, which comes up as one of the first results when u type my name in google. I hope u can consider an apology from me in regards to the way i have conducted myself. I see i can not (yet) make too much of a positive contribution.

Happy New YearEdit

leaving wikipediaEdit

Hi Duja.

When you return, can you please restore my talk page/user page to my last versions in case anyone edits them, and protect them both? I've had just about all I can take on Wikipedia, and don't think it's worth my time and energy anymore.

Best of luck to you, your work here on Wikipedia and patience with those who don't deserve it motivated me to stay as long as I did, but now I think I've lost what little I had left.

Take care. // laughing man 23:14, 1 January 2008 (UTC)


Hi, I was just wondering how your quest for the non POV was going. Also, what are your feelings on the Kosovo situation? i apologize for the warning im about to place but i dont know how to add the signature, so please disregard it.

  Please refrain from making test edits in Wikipedia articles even if your ultimate intention is to fix them. Such edits appear to be vandalism and have been reverted. If you would like to experiment again, please use the sandbox. Thank you. kickenchicken (talk) 01:47, 10 March 2008 (UTC)


Greetings. I've noticed you are one of the editors who has edited the Bosniaks article. I was wondering if you would have any input into a few "revert wars" happening lately over there. Here's a diff. Personally, I think the changes are biased, a little racist/xenophobic, but mostly, they are wrong.

P.S, I've sent this message to a few of the users I've seen in the page history to try to get a discussion started. (talk) 10:04, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

Italicized Serbian CyrillicEdit

Hi Duja,

Nice work on the graphic for the italicized version of the Serbian Cyrillic alphabet, but, the Т and Ш are wrong -- Т has the bar above the character, while Ш has the bar below the character! Cheers, AWN2 (talk) 02:27, 1 July 2008 (UTC)

D'oh, thanks. It was a blind spot; fixed now. Duja 07:49, 1 July 2008 (UTC)

Hey stranger!Edit

I know you're nowhere near as active as you used to be and you may not even get this until the debate is over (that is, if you're interested in it at all) but I wanted to see if you had something to contribute over at Talk:Novak Djokovic#Requested move. The debate seems like something from your area expertise/interest.

Orphaned non-free media (Image:WBFlogo.gif)Edit

  Thanks for uploading Image:WBFlogo.gif. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 07:06, 10 October 2008 (UTC)


Hi. You've participated in the debate about deleting of category:Former Towns of RSK 1991-95 [1]. Now, there's a similar voting on deletion on the article (created, although the results of discussion was delete, not listify). The links to the voting is here merger suggestion?. Since you've participated previously in the discussion, you're invited to participate again. Please, give your opinion. Kubura (talk) 14:25, 28 October 2008 (UTC)

Hey DujaEdit

Hey Duja, can you please help me get rid of this intrudor (Ivan Stambuk), a filthy cro-nationalist, who spreads hatred and provokative desinformations on the discussion page of the article of Serbo-Croatian language, link : He also tries to revert or hide all the facts and contra-arguments that I was bringing up for his senseless statements. He's been doing this on some other pages concerning South Slavic languages as well. I think we should stop him spreading his lies about our language, because the mentioned articles' talk pages might start looking like a mess. Thanks and Regards.

AfD nomination of Serbian surnamesEdit

An editor has nominated one or more articles which you have created or worked on, for deletion. The nominated article is Serbian surnames. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion(s) by adding your comments to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Serbian surnames. Please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate.

Please note: This is an automatic notification by a bot. I have nothing to do with this article or the deletion nomination, and can't do anything about it. --Erwin85Bot (talk) 01:19, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Deca losih muzicaraEdit

A tag has been placed on Deca losih muzicara requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article consists of a dictionary definition or other article that has been transwikied to another project and the author information recorded.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag - if no such tag exists then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hangon tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you.

Suspension of admin privileges due to inactivityEdit

  Following a community discussion in June 2011, consensus was reached to provisionally suspend the administrative privileges of users who have been inactive for one year, meaning administrators who have made neither any edits nor any logged actions in over one year. As a result of this discussion, your administrative privileges have been removed pending your return. If you wish to have these privileges reinstated, please post to the Wikipedia:Bureaucrats' noticeboard and the userright will be restored per the re-sysopping process (i.e., as long as the attending bureaucrats are reasonably satisfied that your account has not been compromised and that your inactivity did not have the effect of evading scrutiny of any actions which might have led to sanctions). This removal of access is procedural only, and not intended to reflect negatively upon you in any way. We wish you the best in future endeavors, and thank you for your past administrative efforts.

Notice of changeEdit

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 you will not longer be able to request restoration of the tools because of your prior inactivity. You have until December 30, 2012 to request restoration or else the policy will prevent you from doing so in the future; you would need to seek a new WP:RFA. Until December 30, you can file a request at WP:BN for review by the crats. Thank you. MBisanz talk 04:22, 3 December 2012 (UTC)
