DRN suggestionEdit

Lost in all that text is me and El_C agreeing that maybe you could have a DRN with Alexikoua over the elections section. If you're down. I'd rather have the other editors (myself, Ktrimi, Khirurg) sit out, imo, it would probably be most focused that way. --Calthinus (talk) 01:39, 3 May 2020 (UTC)

Genocide of SerbsEdit

Hello, I see you are an experienced Wikipedia editor who has done work with pages about massacres and persecution of peoples. There is a bit of an edit war in the Genocide of Serbs in the Independent State of Croatia article. There is also an ongoing debate about the lead and Background section, the chronological order of events, broader context etc. And unfortunately is a bit charged. I figured a person such as yourself would be a a good neutral party to take a look and provide some input on the issues of the article. It would be much appreciated! Cheers.

Dishonest behaviorEdit

Your friend Bato had three (and possibly four) reverts at Pelion (Chaonia) today. Did you a) miss that, or b) notice it but decided not to warn him? Khirurg (talk) 01:08, 13 May 2020 (UTC)

Saying that "s/he did it too" is not a good argument in any situation IMO. I didn't notify Bato because he's the writer of most of the articles in Illyrian-related topics, an extremely experienced editor and an administrator on Albanian wikipedia. He definitely knows when he's reached 3R IMO. You've reached 3RR in two articles and because you're an experienced editor who definitely understands the concept of edit-warring, there was no formal need for a warning. If you reached 4RR, it could have simply moved to a community procedure. The warning exists to advice editors that they are close to crossing a certain threshold. It's for their own benefit and it also prevents a very unpleasant procedure. Just to be clear here, I don't believe in blocking, sanctions or bans as punitive measures against the editors. I only see them as a last resort to protect the integrity of a procedure, so even if I reported you if you reached 4R I would ask for something to the effect of "if Khirurg accepts to limit his reverting, there's no need for this to continue".--Maleschreiber (talk) 11:29, 13 May 2020 (UTC)

Please see note on your DYK review. Are you familiar with Earwig's Copvio Detector? Normally a low percentage like 15% doesn't need to be checked, but in the case of a new nominator, it's good to look at a few of the line items.

HelloEdit

Oy how you doing mate? Hope all is well. Since you're interested in articles about tribes and the like, I thought you should check this out Mijaks and have your input in it. Kind of a obscure subject but if you have the time take a look at it. Best wishes Alltan (talk) 11:10, 4 July 2020 (UTC)

The Mijaci are not a community of common patrilineal origin. Their Y-DNA haplogroups show these differences. Mijak more or less refers to a microregional identity that developed over time, but it's not an identity like that of the fis or that of its slavicized variant, the pleme.--Maleschreiber (talk) 12:54, 6 July 2020 (UTC)

Ohh nice thanks dude, heads up btw Noel Malcolm says theyre an Albanian family like the Bruti and Bruni, but maybe its like with the Bua were its a family within a tribe. I also think we could do some stuff with the macure krici and spanje, but all in its own time i guess. Good talking to ya mate Alltan (talk) 15:50, 9 July 2020 (UTC)

All of these families came from a fis and their power base was that fis. Anthropological and genealogical (Y-DNA) research as part of an interdisciplinary approach has highlighted great finds.--Maleschreiber (talk) 16:01, 9 July 2020 (UTC)

Thats really interesting, you think it could be something like the spanje tribe= spani family? Or krici= crutta ? This part of wiki is really underdeveloped. Alltan (talk) 16:12, 9 July 2020 (UTC)

Removal of well cited assertionEdit

Hi, I noticed that you removed well cited assertion with this diff and disguised it with "cleanup and expansion" description in edit line. I reverted your bold removal. Please do not repeat this kind of behavior in future.--Antidiskriminator (talk) 09:36, 18 July 2020 (UTC)

You can move your "well cited assertions" about Chetniks and "Communist propaganda" against them to a website that is more welcome to these beliefs. Wikipedia mirrors bibliographical consensus, not partisan debates.--Maleschreiber (talk) 15:49, 18 July 2020 (UTC)

False accusationsEdit

Hi,

With this edit (diff) you violated WP:AGF and falsely accused me for attempt to include Bojan Dimitrijević in a FA's bibliography in order to legitimize his later use in other articles although Dimitijević has already been included in FA's bibliography for more than 6 years. Having in mind that the discussion at this article talkpage (which you never edited before) is not the first you joined to contradict my opinion, somebody who does not AGF might conclude that you followed me with an apparent aim of creating irritation, annoyance, or distress to me. Will you please be so kind to refrain from such behavior in future.--Antidiskriminator (talk) 17:28, 19 July 2020 (UTC)

You started that discussion as an offshoot of the discussion about RP in which you presented Dimitrijević as RS. I took part in that discussion and I repeated the same arguments in the new section you specifically created about BD. If you don't like the fact that many editors have been pointing out the obvious POV you're pushing forward, maybe you should try another website that is more welcome to those beliefs. Just like I said when you were complaining that Pajović's anti-Chetnik activism, both in his real life and his works, is actually openly glorified as something good and normal: There are of course websites in which celebration of the anti-fascist victory against Chetnik Nazi collaborators is not considered "something good and normal". Wikipedia is not of those places. --Maleschreiber (talk) 19:01, 19 July 2020 (UTC)
Your reply only confirmed what I wrote. Yes, before you followed me to PĐ you followed me to RP (diff). Again to repeatedly contradict my work and WP:CANVASS another editor against me. Instead to acknowledge the issue with your editing with your reply you continued with violations of AGF. There is no other explanation except that you do it on purpose, hence this will be my last comment in this discussion with you. All the best.--Antidiskriminator (talk) 21:37, 19 July 2020 (UTC)
Yes, since day one in wikipedia I've been involved in articles about Montenegro. That includes Radoje Pajović. I tagged the article and pinged an admin to check it, not because he's an admin but because he genuinely knows a lot more than I about WWII in Yugoslavia. Then, I made some changes and he reworked the article entirely. Now, if you're going to cast WP:ASPERSIONs and argue that an admin was involved in the article because of canvassing do that directly on that admin's talkpage or even better report us both on WP:AE.--Maleschreiber (talk) 01:49, 20 July 2020 (UTC)

Don't mock users in edit summariesEdit

WP:SUMMARYNO. This [2] had better be last occurrence of this behavior. You've done it before, too [3]. If it happens again, I will report you. Third time's a charm as they say. Khirurg (talk) 17:14, 8 August 2020 (UTC)

Why do you think that I mocked you? There many things that each of us doesn't know and it's an absolutely normal thing. There's nothing wrong with it. I wouldn't report someone because they pointed out something that I might not know, but you're free to report anyone you want. --Maleschreiber (talk) 17:22, 8 August 2020 (UTC)
Don't play dumb. You know what you did. And if you do it again, you will be defending it AE instead of here. Promise. Khirurg (talk) 17:24, 8 August 2020 (UTC)
Ok, do that, if you feel that it is the right thing for you to do. I'm being honest with you though when I'm telling you that there's no mocking in highlighting things that someone may not be aware of - when it's done in the context of information sharing, like I did. It's a natural process by which we all learn and I hope that one day you see it in the same way too. But if you don't perceive such instances in the same way, I'm happy to discuss them with you. But I don't think that it's the best course of action for you to come to my talkpage and start a discussion with "promises" of reporting me to AE. It seems rather counter-productive.--Maleschreiber (talk) 17:35, 8 August 2020 (UTC)
"Counter productive", says the guy who deliberately mentions other editors in edit summaries in a mocking manner. Anyway, I don't care about your complicated explications. You have been made aware of WP:SUMMARYNO, so there won't be any more warnings. Have a nice day. Khirurg (talk) 17:37, 8 August 2020 (UTC)
You can have the interpretation that you consider to be the right one. I don't think that it's a correct interpretation, I may ask from an admin to explain it to me though. Have a nice day.--Maleschreiber (talk) 17:49, 8 August 2020 (UTC)
Just to be transparent here, I asked an admin about how SUMMARYNO can be used User_talk:EdJohnston#Use_of_summary_interpretation.--Maleschreiber (talk) 18:34, 8 August 2020 (UTC)

There was absolutely no mocking in the cited examples of Maleschreiber's "edit summary" explanations, but the insult that editor Khirurg made at the MS's expense, in his overly adverse reproach, clearly stand out. If anyone should end up at ANI board then it is that editor who does not hesitate to openly throw insults at his colleagues.--౪ Santa ౪99° 16:01, 29 August 2020 (UTC)

Hello Male How are You? To be honest I'm not very sure about the proposed move to Malishevë. Are we allowed to have two move requests at the same time? Should we close the current move request to go for a new one? What do You think of waiting for the result of the current RM and go for Malishevë after that? I'm just curious because I don't want Wikipedia to keep the undeserved Serbian name for that article. Crazydude1912 (talk) 13:29, 9 August 2020 (UTC)

My opinion here is that you should close Malisheva (although it still has more results than "Mališevo") and start a new one with a Malishevë, to which Malisheva is the definite version.--Maleschreiber (talk) 13:36, 9 August 2020 (UTC)

Balkan-related ArticleEdit

Hello friend, I hope you're doing well. Since i know you're essentially contributing to important articles related to the Balkans, I was probably thinking of you when I saw the issue within the Ancient Macedonians article [4]; if you're not too busy maybe you're interested to give your input as you have a good historical understanding regarding the topic about ancient peoples and tribes in the Balkans. Faleminderit për kontributin tend!--Lorik17 (talk) 10:58, 1 October 2020 (UTC)

I think that it is more complex than the approach which the editor who started the discussion is trying to put forward. Ancient Macedonian identity evolved from a tribal identity to state identity and then to an imperial identity. In every stage of its progress, it became more inclusive of other elements - as all identities of the citizens of expanding states do. The "original" language was definitely closer to ancient Greek than to Thracian.--Maleschreiber (talk) 17:55, 2 October 2020 (UTC)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OKI5zEpmE1o&t=1078s 15.50 in this video, Prince Abbas Hilmi clearly states that Muhammad Ali Pasha's father came to Kavala from Turkish city Konya. Also he says that Muhammad Ali Pasha's native language was Turkish and that almost all members of the dynasty can spoke Turkish. If his father came from Konya, how could he be Albanian? Also there's no evidence that he's an Albanian. I want the ethnic origin parts changed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mnl0g 044 (talkcontribs) 18:38, 28 October 2020 (UTC)

Wikipedia is based on reliable sources if there is an overwhelming consensus about a topic, you need even more authoritative bibliography to put forward another narrative because in your case you'd have to explain why Fuad I of Egypt claimed the throne of Albania or why Albanian Egyptians were specifically targeted when the regime was overthrown.--Maleschreiber (talk) 18:50, 28 October 2020 (UTC)

 On 6 November 2020, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Cem (river), which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that the Cem river basin (pictured) in the borderlands of Albania and Montenegro is home to more than a quarter of the total plant species identified in each country? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Cem (river). You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Cem (river)), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

Albanian organizations, congresses, meetings and so on during the Ottoman periodEdit

Hi there. Is there any template that guides readers to such articles as Congress of Dibra, Congress of Elbasan, Frashër Assembly (1880), Convention of Kuçi? If not, do you think one should be created? Ktrimi991 (talk) 18:59, 25 January 2021 (UTC)

Also pinging @Iaof2017: Ktrimi991 (talk) 19:01, 25 January 2021 (UTC)
If we can define its scope, perhaps a template about congresses and meetings could work. --Maleschreiber (talk) 00:07, 26 January 2021 (UTC)
Id argue for it being a row in a Rilindja template. --Calthinus (talk) 04:25, 26 January 2021 (UTC)
Good idea, @Calthinus: I was actually going to ping you :) I can not give more input to this now, as for a few months I need to focus on others (hopefully, will not need to make more Balkans-related edits for some time). Are you and/or Mal interested in creating that template? Ktrimi991 (talk) 20:25, 1 February 2021 (UTC)

Illyria, nationalismEdit

Why did you delete my edit ? Historyandsciencelearn (talk) 09:12, 19 February 2021 (UTC)

Your edits were written in the form of WP:ESSAY and lacked WP:RS. Reading ESSAY/RS will improve your writing on wikipedia.--Maleschreiber (talk) 23:24, 20 February 2021 (UTC)

Montenegro SettlementsEdit

I live in Montenegro and you have to understand that the old government in power (DPS) invented the Montenegrin language. I never changed another language including Albanian from any of the pages because Albanian actually is a proper language, which was not invented in the 90's like Montenegrin. Another thing you have to factor in is that the majority of the citizens in Montenegro speak the Serbian language; this is also agreed upon universally by world linguists, who have established that the Montenegrin people have been speaking the Serbian language for over a millennium. — Preceding unsigned comment added by CrnogorskiKralj (talkcontribs) 23:36, 7 March 2021 (UTC)

Thank you for what you said on Yoninah's talk, - see also Wikipedia:Wikipedia Signpost/2021-03-28/Obituary! --Gerda Arendt (talk) 16:10, 29 March 2021 (UTC)

It's the least that could be done. This reminds me of a poem by Arseniy Tarkovsky:

All are immortal. All is immortal. No need
To be afraid of death at seventeen
Nor yet at seventy. Reality and light
Exist, but neither death nor darkness.
All of us are on the sea-shore now,
And I am one of those who haul the nets
When a shoal of immortality comes in. --Maleschreiber (talk) 23:56, 29 March 2021 (UTC)

Question(s)Edit

Çkemi Male? Shpresoj tjesh mirë dhe me shëndet. Im editing the articles around Albanian clans,but i ran into some issues. 1) I cant find much material on older tribes like maleshi, krici, niksici and the like. Could you perhaps link me any good studies on the topic or pdfs? It would be of great help. And 2nd)I took a look at Kuqi, and although theres plentz of material to support their albanian origin, Im not comfortable to add them to the sidebar at the moment. Theyre id say a special case cause they still exist, so you cant add them to *Historical*,but theyre also primarily slavic nowadays, so im not sure i can put them with tribes like Krasniqi or Shala. Maybe the example of say Shkreli/Škrijel would be a good model? Si Mendon?.Tung! Alltan (talk) 16:27, 29 March 2021 (UTC)

Hey, Alltan. Hope you're well. I think that you can add Kuçi in the historical tribes section because a part of them remained Albanian until very late and a part in KS and Plava-Gucia are Albanian even today. In the article, I've tried to put forward a balanced version between historical origins and modern identities. In terms of demographics, most Kuçi today are in fact Sandzakli Bosniaks, so they're quite close to a division like the one about Shkreli. I have many sources about Krici and other such tribes - mostly Serbo-Croatian ethnography. I can e-mail you a tranferfile link or send them directly via e-mail. --Maleschreiber (talk) 23:52, 29 March 2021 (UTC)
Ok i will add kuqi tommorow (good work on the article), but sadly i havent added an email to this account yet. I will let you know when i get to it (probably friday, busy week). Thanks in advance though! Tung! Alltan (talk) 00:00, 30 March 2021 (UTC)
Thank you for the consistent work and attention to bibliography! :) --Maleschreiber (talk) 00:04, 30 March 2021 (UTC)
I enabled the email function, write to me when you can! Alltan (talk) 12:35, 30 March 2021 (UTC)

MirditaEdit

How you doing man?. Well the "principality" or the autonomous entity was build upon several bajraks or 12 bajraks in which all of them were ruled by a single prince or kapedan. It's similarly as Prince-Bishopric of Montenegro in which at first it was a small autonomous entity but it expanded afterwards by the unification of surrounding bajraks, so i think it's ok to call it a principality due to the fact that it has been refereed as such by several authors and the rulers themselves were refereed as such--User:Dardania0 (talk) 19:56, 30 April 2021 (UTC)

Some descendants of these bajraktars call it a principality and in 1921 the last bajraktar tried to form a principality - Republic of Mirdita - but Mirdita wasn't an autonomous entity. It was a group of bajraks under a hereditary bajraktar. The bajrak was a military institution which granted semi-autonomy in terms of taxation and property rights, but it's not the same as political autonomy and semi-independence. If Mirdita was a "principality" because it was under the bajrak system, then there were tens of principalities in Albanian lands. If there is no bibliography which discusses it as a principality, we should have wider community discussion about a merge to Mirdita.--Maleschreiber (talk) 22:28, 1 May 2021 (UTC)
