  Damon Runyon's short story "Dancing Dan's Christmas" is a fun read if you have the time. Right from the start it extols the virtues of the hot Tom and Jerry

This hot Tom and Jerry is an old-time drink that is once used by one and all in this country to celebrate Christmas with, and in fact it is once so popular that many people think Christmas is invented only to furnish an excuse for hot Tom and Jerry, although of course this is by no means true.

No matter what concoction is your favorite to imbibe during this festive season I would like to toast you with it and to thank you for all your work here at the 'pedia this past year. Best wishes for your 2020 as well V. MarnetteD|Talk 20:46, 16 December 2019 (UTC)

Warning you sended me....Edit

Good day Sir,

I am sorry for being seen as the "not knowing what he is writing" person. I am just trying to help people. I am just trying to tell people how it is/was. Wikipedia should be based on true facts and not wrong lies spread around. I myself am just editing topics, that I did a LOT of research about. I spended hours/days of reading an learning about the history of my home country (Kosova), the one of Albania and also some about other countries of the Balkans. Also about their relations with other countries and so on.... . Those people that undo my changes are just people that dont know what is true and what is false. Those people didnt research about that topic like I did. Instead of calling my changes pathetic and wrong, they should be thankful for the true facts that I am trying to provide to millions of people that want to learn about those topics! I hope u understand my point of view.

Your sincerely,

-Kutlovci— Preceding unsigned comment added by Kutlovci (talkcontribs) 15:32, 25 December 2019 (UTC)

User: ObsuserEdit

Hi Vanjagenije. Would you mind watching User talk:Obsuser#Non-free use of File:Bosnia and Herzegovina's national anthem.ogg for a bit. I’m actually trying to help them, but I think their unfamiliarity with WP:NFCCP makes them think that I’m not. If they proceed to edit war with a bot over something like this, they will get blocked again most likely for a much longer time than a week. Perhaps as an admin, you may be able to better explain to them why the file is at risk of being removed as long as it’s missing a rationale for a certain use. — Marchjuly (talk) 13:56, 26 December 2019 (UTC)

Please take a lookEdit

It does not seem that disruptive editing will stop over here: Bunjevci. Sadkσ (talk is cheap) 02:01, 3 January 2020 (UTC)

Hi Vanjagenije. Since you are an admin and experienced Balkan editor, one expects you are willing to and capable of helping the community to build consensus and trust. Responding to Sadko's request by reverting SerVasi and then warning him for 3RR without warning Sadko too (who had made the same number of reverts), does not send to that direction. Your action is practically a response to a WP:Canvassing attempt. You are expected to be more careful in the future. Cheers, Ktrimi991 (talk) 21:11, 3 January

It is nothing new on Wikipedia to write to an admin's page if a new disruptive editor keeps with his behaviour (and most likely a sock as well). As far as I recall you have done it several times. Please do not try to out other people like some kiddo but instead try to discuss, talk and add more RS and any material to the project. cheers Sadkσ (talk is cheap) 19:47, 4 January 2020 (UTC)

My edit is common knowledge in all but one country. Just because you belong to that one in particular doesn't mean I am being disruptive. Also i don't know who are you refering to as a sock but it seems like just another slanderous comment from you "kiddo". SerVasi (talk) 23:29, 4 January 2020 (UTC)

The editor in question has yet again vandalized the page (3RR - gaming the system), despite having no consensus or real arguments. Sadkσ (talk is cheap) 20:11, 20 February 2020 (UTC)
@Sadko: Please, provide a WP:diff. I don't see any recent vandalism at Bunjevci. Vanjagenije (talk) 20:27, 20 February 2020 (UTC)

A page with "Malik Ofori" title has previously been moved or deleted by youEdit

Hello there, I just noticed you delete a page I am trying to create which seems to have been previously created. I decided to contact you first before proceeding with the creation of the page for Malik Ofori; a Ghanaian filmmaker. ThanksM01001111 (talk) 19:14, 20 January 2020 (UTC)

@M01001111: I deleted the Malik Ofori page after consensus for deletion was reached here: Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Malik Ofori. The problem with the article was in the WP:notability of its subject. Notability is established by citing independent reliable sources that significantly cover the subject (see WP:42). But, there was not a single such source cited in the article, nor in the said deletion discussion. If you want to re-create the article, you need to demonstrate that there are such sources now. But, another problem with the article was that it was created and edited by people personally connected to Malik Ofori in violation of Wikipedia's policy on the WP:conflict of interest. So, I have to ask you: Do have any personal or business connection to Malik Ofori? How did you get the idea to write about him? Vanjagenije (talk) 20:06, 20 January 2020 (UTC)
@Vanjagenije: I have come across his name many time on football articles like this so i decided to google him and found out he is an influencer and a filmmaker in Ghana. I decided to make a Wiki page for him since there wasn't one. I have no personal or business connection with him. I want to become a good wiki editor like yourself and a believe having or creating more articles and improving Wikipedia will go a long way in helping me gain experience. M01001111 (talk) 23:47, 20 January 2020 (UTC)
@M01001111: I see. Still, the article needs reliable independent sources that significantly cover the subject in order to prove the notability of the subject. Can you cite such sources? If you can, the best way for you is to create a wp:draft article (like Draft:Malik Ofori) and submit it to the WP:AfC process. Vanjagenije (talk) 00:07, 21 January 2020 (UTC)
@Vanjagenije: Alright, thanks for clarifying things, I really appreciate your time. M01001111 (talk) 00:17, 21 January 2020 (UTC)


Вања, xвала што сте ме дочекали на Википедији!--Sivisokole (talk) 12:33, 24 January 2020 (UTC)


Hello Vanjagenije, You requested for credible sources and I provided you with references so why do you archive it? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Guyjysus (talkcontribs) 13:28, 13 February 2020 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) Guyjysus, if this is about Universidad Empresarial de Costa Rica, then it seems what the problem is with the edits right now is that you are removing content from the article that is backed up by credible sources. I don't think there is a problem with what you're adding, just with what you're removing. –ToxiBoi! (contribs) 03:47, 14 February 2020 (UTC)

Slovak languageEdit

Hi Vanja,

regarding a subject a new shortdesc has been aded, that I finetuned similar to German langauge, i.e., the rest you may catch from the edit IP reverted me with the weird accusation of vandalism...when I opened the discussion in the talk, the IP blanked it ([2]) with the comment of being '"off-topic", that is obviously not the case...moreover he reverted again, re-iterating the same accusation...the Ip anyway seems to completely ignore the argumentation and reacts by a typical straw man arguments, in contradiction even the page's own this point I ask your intervention...Thank you for your time.(KIENGIR (talk) 20:22, 15 February 2020 (UTC))

@KIENGIR: Regarding the edits to the article, it seams to me that the IP is right. You were constantly trying to insert a short description "{{short description|Czech–Slovak languages}}" which makes no sense. Slovak language is obviously just ONE of Czech–Slovak languages, so its description cannot be "Czech–Slovak languages" (that would be plural). Regarding the talk page edit, I reverted the IP. Vanjagenije (talk) 01:33, 16 February 2020 (UTC)
Well, may be we have a misunderstanding, I never said/assumed only Slovak would belong to the Czech–Slovak languages (would Czech-Slovak language in singular comply then?), I just followed by the classification line the parent, that is presented on the infobox and part of the first sentence of the article. Would you agree to change the current revision then to West-Slavic language, hence not just in Slovakia Slovak is spoken? Thank You(KIENGIR (talk) 01:57, 16 February 2020 (UTC))
Feel free to discuss it on the article talk page. I have no interest in the topic and my talk page is not proper place for such discussion. Vanjagenije (talk) 10:16, 16 February 2020 (UTC)


Hi. I realized that you reverted my edit, stating that the source was provided. However, I checked the sources provided and the IP user (user changed the figures such that it did not match what the source says. This IP user (and other similar users) has also changed the climate figures on other Serbian cities without providing a source. For example, in my edit, if you compare the climate table to this source, the figures are correct (averages are from 1981-2010 while extremes are from 1961-2010). However, when the IP user changed the figures, a lot of them did not match what the official data says. For example:

  • Jan mean (IP version) -2.3 / Jan mean (from source) -3.6
  • Feb mean (IP version) -1.0/ Feb mean (from source) -2.7
  • Mar mean (IP version) 4.0 / Mar mean (from source) 1.8
  • Annual sunshine (IP version) 2066.8/ Annual sunshine (from source) 1936.8

Please check the sources for the climate data and look at the whether the changes the IP user made are correct before reverting my edits. Thanks. Ssbbplayer (talk) 16:07, 18 February 2020 (UTC)

Jovan Mikić SpartakEdit

Hi, could you please provide explanation to our new editor why his edit is not appropriate and not per basic Wiki guidelines? I believe that he (or she) does not understand them all too well. Sadkσ (talk is cheap) 20:13, 20 February 2020 (UTC)

@Sadko: Feel free to start a discussion with the editor. Vanjagenije (talk) 20:35, 20 February 2020 (UTC)
I tried over and over, but - WP:NOTLISTENING. Sadkσ (talk is cheap) 20:56, 20 February 2020 (UTC)
@Sadko: Can you, please, provide a WP:diff of you trying to discuss the Spartak article with SerVasi? Vanjagenije (talk) 21:11, 20 February 2020 (UTC)
I was speaking in general. Sadkσ (talk is cheap) 21:21, 20 February 2020 (UTC)
