Dab pagesEdit

While editing History of Greece, you recently restored a link to Britain, a disambiguation page. You may wish to know that links in Wikipedia articles are not supposed to point to disambiguation pages. They're supposed to link to relevant articles. You can find the guideline here. There is currently a project underway to eliminate links to disambiguation pages. You can find out about it here. The link to ukgbi is a redirect to United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, a perfectly valid way to link to that article that improves performance by using fewer bytes and saves excess typing. Please try to avoid creating links to disambiguation pages.

Thank you for your kind attention, and happy editing.

We noticed though that when you edited The Happy Return, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Moctezuma (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

Mass removal of paintersEdit

Hello, Shakko! I've been approached with a question regarding your recent removal of painters from this list. Based on your first edit summary, you seem to have removed them because those articles were created by User:Leningradartist. However, please note that since none of those articles have been deleted, there is no formal reason why links to them should not be included in the list of painters, especially since they meet the list's criteria. I have reverted your deletion. If you wish to pursue this matter further, please start a discussion on the talk page or start submitting particularly promotional articles to AfD. Links to articles deleted via the AfD process can, of course, be then removed from the list as well. Best,—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); June 24, 2013; 19:13 (UTC)

About one your uploadEdit

Hi, When writing a stub Crimean journey of Catherine the Great, I came across your upload of File:Fireworks crimea.jpg Ghirlandajo (talk · contribs) linked this painting to the strikingly resembling File:Plersch Night illumination of Kaniów.jpg. I did some search and found that the latter one refers to fireworks arranged by Polish king Stanislaw Poniatowski who met Catherine II in Kaniv on April 25 1787 while she was travelling down Dnieper on her voyage to Crimea. The occasion was mentioned, e.g., by Simon Sebag Montefiore, see here. (BTW this text helped me to solve a puzzle how Catherine appeared in Poland while visiting Crimea :-)

Now, about your upload. As I understand (and see from the image) it is your photo of the painting. The question is how it is related to the painting Plersch. So, where did you see the painting? Who says the author is unknown? How did you come with the caption? Do you have any ideas how to resolve the issue of the painting you uploaded? Is it a version of the same author? A 'pirated' copy? Thank you, -No.Altenmann >t 05:16, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

P.S. It is the fun of solving little puzzles of this kind that keeps me with wikipedia. -No.Altenmann >t 05:16, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
Hi. As I can remember, looking to the bad quality of photo :) it is my own work. I saw and shot this picture in the Moscow State History museum. So it should be anonymous copy of Lviv painting; in 18th century they did such things very often. About caption - I can't remember how exactly it looked like, possibly "during the way in Crimea", not "in Crimea"... the difference in Russian is not too big. I think file can be renamed into File:Night illumination of Kaniów, copy after Plersch (Moscow Historical Museum).jpg or like this.
I like puzzles too - this is my collection of errors of portrait models - Kitty Fisher's portrait in Lavinia Fisher's article, etc... Should find time and translate it. --Shakko (talk) 07:51, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

Succession to the British throneEdit

The caption to the "tree" your edit has added[1] is "Succession to the British throne - family tree (2015)". Can you please clarify whether it is restricted to the persons in the "Tree list" (which is not a family tree}? One purpose of the article is to avoid confusion with genealogical listings and other topics such as members of the royal family or House of Windsor. Qexigator (talk) 14:56, 10 July 2015 (UTC)

i can remove two catholic children. you mean that? --185.79.102.135 Shakko (talk) 15:55, 10 July 2015 (UTC)
My question is whether Shakko is aware that there is an important difference between what is commonly known as a "family tree" and the enumerated list of persons in line of succession, which in the article is called the "Tree list". My concern is that the image Shakko has constructed and inserted tends to a confusion of these, not clarification. Further, I doubt whether such a construction helps communicate to readers the information in the article. Moreover, the article itself has images (suitably sized for visibility) of the first six in line, which the Queen and Parliament have taken as the persons near enough to be within range of a realistic prospect of succession. When new-borns enter the line higher up, others cease to be among the current six, or, as any of the current six cease for any reason to be in line, others will move up and become one of the six. Everyone in the Tree list with an article is linked, and images can be seen there by anyone interested. Perhaps there is some other article where Shakko's construction would be more suitable, as a tree. For example, in an article where the family tree is relevant, a symbol could be used to signify those who are listed in the Succession article's enumerated tree list. Succession to titles and to property in the British royal family is distinct from the succession to the throne (and the monarch's duties and responsibilties which go with it) as determined by the legislative enactments. Qexigator (talk) 17:02, 10 July 2015 (UTC)
look, the image is the easy way to understand the family relations between listed persons. Visual data is always more obvious. I did it 'cos when I read the list it caused me some problems; as a reader I was confused - who is who for the queen, who is first cousin, who is second. So I did it as the additional reference. I can add current number to each person (near the photos), if you wish. Or you wants to change the caption to the picture? Something like "Family tree of persons in the list of Succession..."? I don't see the problem with new-borns, it takes 5 minutes to change the picture in 2016, or when it will happen. What exactly the problem is? --Shakko (talk) 17:26, 10 July 2015 (UTC)
if you wants to change the caption for more suitable - no problems, do it. As you can see, it isn't the House of Windsor, it is only the persons from that list. --Shakko (talk) 17:29, 10 July 2015 (UTC)
Shakko, thank you for explaining your point about your intention to let this construction use visual data to show the family's cousinship. But that article is about lines of future succession, first in direct descent from the queen, and then in the next collateral lines. It is not about family relationships and cousinships as such. Please reconsider the point you have made in connection with the points to the contrary in my above comment. My own view is that, all things considered, that article would be better without the image you have constructed, and I will propose on the Talk page that it be removed.

Hi Shakko! Thank you for adding your photo to the Haemophilia in European royalty article! I think it will be really helpful in allowing people to see how the disease spread.
