Lietuvos pasipriešinimo bolševikams istorijos faktų traktuotėsEdit

Kad nebūtų beprasmių taisymų ir atitaisymų, norėčiau visgi sužinoti, kuo remiatės palikdama kai kuriuos neteisingus ar labai abejotinus teiginius apie pasipriešinimo bolševikams kovas Lietuvoje. Tai labai jautrūs klausimai ir matyti teiginius, kurie jau seniai paneigti Lietuvoje (ne tik Lietuvos istorikų, bet ir JAV) - nerimta. Netgi rimto istoriko Snyder knygoje apie Lietuvą yra grubių klaidų. Kol Lietuvą jo knygos pasiekė, „traukinys jau buvo nuvažiavęs“ - knyga išleista ir išversta į nemažai kalbų. Klaidų tiražavimas įvyko... O toliau vieni per kitus cituoja, netikrindami, kad tai jau paneigta... Lietuvos šmeižimo (čia jau net ne klaidos) kampaniją vykdo JAV ir Lietuvos pilietis (net nekalbantis lietuviškai) Grant Arthur Gochin. Lietuvoje šiuo metu jis pralaimėjo visus teismus, turi netgi atlyginti Lietuvos genocido ir rezistencijos tyrimo centrui bylinėjimosi išlaidas. O viso to esmė - Gochin spaudė Lietuvą, kad būtų remiamasi tik NKVD ir KGB archyvų medžiaga. Kiti šaltiniai akivaizdžiai parodė, kad tai sovietinės propagandos klastotės. Nejaugi Wikipedijos nuostata – kad Lietuvos istorja Wikipedijoje būtų pristatoma pagal sovietinių propagandistų sukurptas klišes?

It's an undeniable fact that LAF was anti-Semitic (many anti-Semitic texts authored by Škirpa available on the Internet), many of its members collaborated with the Nazis (the infamous TDA), and ended up participating in the Holocaust. Yes, Snyder is not the most reliable author, and it appears Škirpa was not in Lithuania at the time ans was not inciting mobs, but basic facts are correct that LAF was anti-Semitic and LAF members participated in the Holocaust. The controversy about the street names is real -- whether you or I think that one or the other side has no merit -- and got coverage in foreign press. This makes it perfectly reasonable information to be included in the article. It's not Wikipedia's role to pick the "winner" and erase contradictory information, but to present facts and describe the controversies as they occur. Renata (talk) 05:30, 17 April 2020 (UTC)

Gradations of Lithuanian honoursEdit

Merry Christmas, I wanted to ask whether you could help me with Jonas Budrys' awards? I looked at his Lithuanian national honours and I was very confused about them. I am trying to make the article look nice, but the problem is with the Lithuanian awards and what ribbons they have. The ribbons have their own files, but the issue is what the "type" means. For example, what does "2nd type 1st class" or "1st type 3rd class" mean? Do you have any idea? Because I have no clue ;). Any help is appreciated and thank you for significantly improving the article on Jonas Budrys. Best --Itzhak Rosenberg (talk) 10:44, 23 December 2020 (UTC)

Itzhak Rosenberg: the issue is that pre-war awards had different types/classes than the post-1990 awards. I am pretty sure the ribbons on Commons are for the modern awards. I don't know how/if the pre-war classes correlate to post-1990 classes. It would take some digging to figure out. Renata (talk) 18:24, 26 December 2020 (UTC)

Michiel de RuyterEdit

In October you left a message om my talk page as below.

Please be advised that the two references in the bibliography go back to 2005, at which time there were no in-line citations related to either. Perhaps your request for clarification should have been addressed to the person that put in both references in 2005, not to me.

However, as all my in-line citations relate to "Van vlootvoogden en zeeslagen" and there are no other in-line citations to the other work, I have removed the latter Sscoulsdon (talk) 08:52, 2 January 2021 (UTC)

(Ref in Michiel de Ruyter) The article cites "Warnsinck 1941" but there are two works by this author in the same year listed in the bibliography.

Important discussionEdit

Hi! I invite you to express your opinion here because you are an expert in Wikipedia. Now it is more than clear for me that the Belarusian side actively attempts to establish Pahonia as an exclusively Belarusian coat of arm name (example from edit warring) and deny any connections between Pahonia and the Republic of Lithuania (despite the fact that the Poles still call the coat of arms of the Republic of Lithuania as Pogonia). Rector of the Vilnius University perfectly describes what is Pahonia (here) where he says that Pahonia is a dynasty symbol of the Gediminids which was later established as the coat of arms of Lithuania. The Belarusian websites are full of theories about "Slavic" Lithuania and Slavic Pahonia (example) which is absolutely contrary to the fact that it was created by the Balts and later expanded into the Slavic lands under the command of the ethnic Lithuanian pagan rulers . -- Pofka (talk) 16:44, 3 May 2021 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Category:1912 in LithuaniaEdit

 

A tag has been placed on Category:1912 in Lithuania indicating that it is currently empty, and is not a disambiguation category, a category redirect, a featured topics category, under discussion at Categories for discussion, or a project category that by its nature may become empty on occasion. If it remains empty for seven days or more, it may be deleted under section C1 of the criteria for speedy deletion.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself. Liz Read!

How we will see unregistered usersEdit

Hi!

You get this message because you are an admin on a Wikimedia wiki.

When someone edits a Wikimedia wiki without being logged in today, we show their IP address. As you may already know, we will not be able to do this in the future. This is a decision by the Wikimedia Foundation Legal department, because norms and regulations for privacy online have changed.

Instead of the IP we will show a masked identity. You as an admin will still be able to access the IP. There will also be a new user right for those who need to see the full IPs of unregistered users to fight vandalism, harassment and spam without being admins. Patrollers will also see part of the IP even without this user right. We are also working on better tools to help.

If you have not seen it before, you can read more on Meta. If you want to make sure you don’t miss technical changes on the Wikimedia wikis, you can subscribe to the weekly technical newsletter.

We have two suggested ways this identity could work. We would appreciate your feedback on which way you think would work best for you and your wiki, now and in the future. You can let us know on the talk page. You can write in your language. The suggestions were posted in October and we will decide after 17 January.

Thank you. /Johan (WMF)

Adam Alfred PlaterEdit

They were actually using Broel version at this point, not Broël, just like the other branch was using Zyberk not Siberg. Also why do you change {{sfn}} to <ref>? I don't like that Marcelus (talk) 22:45, 16 January 2022 (UTC)

No opinion on Broël, just seemed more correct. I changed ref format to be consistent. {{sfn}} is very useful when you need to cite multiple pages from the same printed work. When you don't need that, you only introduce two different citation formats that are very confusing for readers and required two clicks instead of one to get to actual citation info.

WP:AFC Helper NewsEdit

Hello! I wanted to drop a quick note for all of our AFC participants; nothing huge and fancy like a newsletter, but a few points of interest.

  • AFCH will now show live previews of the comment to be left on a decline.
  • The template {{db-afc-move}} has been created - this template is similar to {{db-move}} when there is a redirect in the way of an acceptance, but specifically tells the patrolling admin to let you (the draft reviewer) take care of the actual move.

Short and sweet, but there's always more to discuss at WT:AFC. Stop on by, maybe review a draft on the way? Whether you're one of our top reviewers, or haven't reviewed in a while, I want to thank you for helping out in the past and in the future.

Empty categoriesEdit

Hello, Renata3,

I hope you are well. Per WP:C1, empty categories are tagged for deletion and then sit for 7 days in Category:Empty categories awaiting deletion in case there are questions about them, like if the categories have been emptied out-of-process. We know they have been unpopulated for 7 days because the 7 day period starts when they are tagged CSD C1. Even in the case of sockpuppets and ban evasion (see WP:REVERTBAN), quick deletion is not recommended. If there are other speedy deletion criteria that fit these categories, they can be deleted but in the case of categories deleted simply for being empty, we do have this 7 day rules so please tag them in the future if you come across them. Thank you! Liz Read! Talk! 22:52, 13 March 2022 (UTC)

Hi Liz. These categories were created in error. They deal with 1471 in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth which did not exist until 1569. I speedy deleted them as not to waste anyone's time with this. I probably should have selected G6 from the drop down. Renata3 23:07, 13 March 2022 (UTC)

  2. Made fewer than 100 edits over a 60-month period

Administrators at risk for being desysopped under these criteria will continue to be notified ahead of time. Thank you for your continued work.

Question about Harv and Sfn no-target errorsEdit

Hi Renata3,

I noticed that you made some edits recently on the Battle of Bucaramanga (1899) page! You wrote "resolve Category:Harv and Sfn no-target errors." I have been working on pages related to the Thousand Days' War in Colombia, so most of those references were left by me. And I see that you fixed them. First, I just want to say thanks and I appreciate you checking in and fixing that. I am new to Wikipedia editing, and I'm basing my editing entirely on attempting to imitate the coding left behind on "good" military history pages. So that I don't continue making these mistakes, would you mind explaining to me what I did wrong, and what I need to do to ensure I don't keep doing it? (Also, I noticed that you went in and changed how I was citing the author's last names. I'm not sure what Wikipedia's style is, so I'll defer to you on that. However, at least in my academic writing, when you cite an author with the Spanish-style two last names, you cite both the paternal and maternal last name the first time you cite them, and then just the paternal last name every following time. So I'm under the assumption that, for instance, Plazas Olarte would be cited as just "Plazas" every citation after the first. If this is wrong on Wikipedia, though, I'll keep that in mind moving forward.)

Rafael Uribe Uribe (talk) 05:12, 22 May 2022 (UTC)

Hi Rafael Uribe Uribe. Thanks for your contributions to Wikipedia. For {{sfn}} template to work properly, you need to match the last name exactly to how it is cited in the full bibliography entry. If the last names don't match, then the links in the short reference will not link to the full cite.
So in this particular case, the full bibliography entry was Plazas Olarte, Guillermo (1985). La guerra civil de los Mil Días: estudio militar (in Spanish). Tunja: Academia Boyacense de Historia while the short refence was only "Plazas 1985". So when you clicked on the blue link on "Plazas 1985" nothing would happen. Now when you click on "Plazas Olarte 1985" it highlights in light blue the full bibliography entry. I have no opinion which is more appropriate to use as last name, Plazas or Plazas Olarte, but they need to match in both the long and the short footnotes.
Also, suggest installing a script to highlight such errors in the future. All you need to do is copy and paste importScript('User:Svick/HarvErrors.js'); // Backlink: [[User:Svick/HarvErrors.js]] to your common.js page. Hope this helps! Renata3 16:17, 22 May 2022 (UTC)
Hi Renata3! Thank you for the explanation. I really appreciate it. I'm doing my best to familiarize myself with all of the rules and norms and styles, but it's not particularly intuitive (for me) to know where to look, or to understand the more technical things. I will keep these citation rules in mind for my future edits, and I did install the script per your recommendation. What does it do? Does it automatically flag or detect the errors when I'm editing? I went in to some pages and opened the edit function, but nothing was obviously apparent to me.
EDIT/FOLLOW UP: So, I installed the script and I can see tons of errors now for the Battle of Peralonso page. But I can't understand why. I just went in and fixed it so that I mention both of the authors' surnames in the citation. But there are lots of harvnb errors and it honestly looks like I made it worse, even though I tried to imitate the edits you made on the Battle of Bucaramanga (1899) page. Rafael Uribe Uribe (talk) 19:27, 23 May 2022 (UTC)
Hi Rafael Uribe Uribe. So you did fix a bunch of errors in the article. I fixed the remaining ones. There were only three remaining issues: (a) the article had full cite to "Plazas Olarte, Guillermo (1985). La guerra civil de los Mil Días" repeated eight times. When that happens, the software does not know which full cite to highlight in light blue and gives an error for duplicate citations. (b) There was a stray number 13 in ref #42 "de la Pedraja, 13 2006", and (c) "Henao 2014" was missing the second last name.
I made two other optional changes: converted citations to {{sfn}}. I think it's easier to use than <ref> tags with {{harvnb}} templates inside them. Additional benefit is that the sfn template automatically groups duplicated templates. Note how the number of footnotes went down from 86 to 53. I also changed "p=" to "pp=" to indicate page ranges. Normally, "p=" is used when citing a single page, and "pp=" is used when citing a page range or several pages.
I know citations are not easy to get the hang of, so let me know if you need more help. Renata3 21:09, 23 May 2022 (UTC)
Hi Renata3. Thank you so very much for your patience with me, and for the explanations. This all makes sense. I will give the "sfn" citations a try for my next batch of edits! Meanwhile, I will reach out if I have any other issues. Thanks very much for the offer to answer any potential future questions. I appreciate it a lot!

Module:Footnotes/whitelistEdit

Hi Renata•3. I'm posting here as I think something went wrong when you sorted the new entries. Eight of the new entries never made it to the sorted list. I've listed them here under Lost during sorting. - LCU ActivelyDisinterested transmissions °co-ords° 17:27, 29 May 2022 (UTC)

Thanks, ActivelyDisinterested. No idea what went wrong... Added the "lost" items and the others listed in the sandbox. Renata3 23:16, 31 May 2022 (UTC)

Category:Lithuanian poets in PolishEdit

You could have ask me as a creator of the category what it suppose to mean. It was actually rather useful Marcelus (talk) 17:34, 24 August 2022 (UTC)

Pretenders to the short-lived Lithuanian throneEdit

Following the death of King-elect Wilhelm Karl von Urach in 1928, his successors were entrusted to keep the pretence to the Lithuanian throne in case Lithuania would ever seek to restore its constitutional monarchy in the future. Despite the fact Wilhelm von Urach was never crowned, the Urach family still retains this title to this day. To my knowledge, Prince Inigo, as the Head of the House of Urach, remains to be the main pretender to the defunct Lithuanian throne and he never renounced it. The same goes for his predecessors.

SeriousThinker: please provide any reliable sources (other than fantastical speculation in media) that anyone has made any claim since 1918 to be King of Lithuania. Renata3 22:57, 11 September 2022 (UTC)
Firstly, there’s a difference between a regnal title and a title in pretence – they are also differently marked in templates as presented below for comparison.
Regnal titles
Titles in pretence
Secondly, the quotes of Inigo unambiguously stating that he sees himself as a pretender ready to take accept his duty as King if the Lithuanian people him want to are literally mentioned in his article and in the article about the Lithuanian monarchs in the monarchism section. They are hard to miss.
And lastly, fantastical or not, care to explain what’s wrong with presenting decent articles from the mainstream media? These are not tabloids or opinions presented in a personal blog. Are you implying they don’t know any better? What should I present to you, pacta conventa? I highly doubt there are many academic sources on someone being a titular monarch of a non-existent monarchy. For further investigation, go to Heads of former ruling families. SeriousThinker 12:25, 12 September 2022 (UTC)
SeriousThinker: once again, please provide any reliable sources (other than fantastical speculation in media) that anyone has made any claim since 1918 to be King of Lithuania. Inigo saying that he would be happy to serve as a king is a far cry from declaring "I am the rightful King! Your president is illegitimate." Even if you could stretch that single quote from a media interview, there is zero evidence that any of his predecessors ever made any claims or statements regarding the throne.

Lithuanian namesEdit

Hi, hope all well on your end. As I think you've noticed (and many thanks for correcting my errors), I have some difficulty in the use of names derived from Lithuanian-language sources, in part due to grammar and in part due difficulty to navigate when Lithuanian proper name or when a Lithuanized version of a Russian, Jewish or Polish name. In the Vaitkevičius (1967) reference is come across the foot-note iš kontrrevoliucijos rankų pavyko išplėšti 24 Kauno Darbininkų atstovų tarybos narius bei aktyvistus: B. Petniūną, B. Mickevičių, V. Griškelį, L. Zaliną, A. Pševodskj, V. Zenkevičių, A. Gadusą ir kt." I think I name the names of the first four names into English, but less sure on the latter three. Pševodskj seems to be a typo of a transliteration of a Slavic name (Polish or Russian?), 'Zenkevičių' should be Zenkevičius (Vytauto Zenkevičiaus?) but for 'A. Gadusą' I come up with nothing (in index, listed as 'A. Gadusas'). --Soman (talk) 15:20, 27 September 2022 (UTC)

Hi Soman, I looked into the names. (Sorry it's so late, have been crazy busy in real life). They are so obscure that they don't even really show up in communist literature. I have removed them from the article as trivia. Renata3 03:03, 12 October 2022 (UTC)

Verily yours, User:Ttk371 — Preceding undated comment added 00:05, 29 November 2022 (UTC)
