Sea of Okhotsk editsEdit

Thanks for adding all that content to those articles. Unfortunately, you created a bunch of redirects and red links. Could you please fix the former and stop creating the latter? ST1849 (talk) 02:12, 24 January 2017 (UTC)

What are you talking about? Can you be more specific?Xufanc (talk) 15:27, 24 January 2017 (UTC)
You created a bunch of redirects for Tugursky Bay. Could you please fix them? ST1849 (talk) 20:46, 24 January 2017 (UTC)
I have fixed them, but things will be far easier if you try to do some previous research and stop using Russian genitives in geographic names before creating an article. Example Ulban Bay and not Ul'bansky Bay. Xufanc (talk) 00:16, 25 January 2017 (UTC)
I've seen both forms used in English. I figured someone might come along and change those spellings. You did. A slow clap just for you. C-L-A-P C-L-A-P C-L-A-P C-L-A-P C-L-A-P ST1849 (talk) 00:24, 25 January 2017 (UTC)

InquiryEdit

I appreciate your edits that are concerning German pages. One small question I have for you, respectfully, how do you manage to maintain an unbiased approach while editing? Danielle 1944 (talk) 18:48, 30 January 2017 (UTC) beginner wiki-editor

Not all articles involve that approach. But in the articles that call for it, as a rule of thumb by being mindful that there are different takes or opinions on the subject and researching about both —or all of them if there are more than two. Xufanc (talk) 05:54, 1 February 2017 (UTC)


Thanks for getting back to me. Would you say you took that approach in this past edit? The changing of a sight word added to the conclusion of thoughts from this information. https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Reichskolonialbund&type=revision&diff=599479653&oldid=550383694

Danielle 1944 (talk) 05:03, 7 February 2017 (UTC)

The edit mentioned was not done by me. I did not choose word "conjecture". When it comes to Gleichschaltung much has been written a posteriori about the attitude of Germans towards it. But at that time the only thing Germans could have done was to accept it because it was imposed from above, and they could not have foreseen any of the consequences of their openly passive attitude at the time when Gleichschaltung of different types of German organizations was following its course. Opposition to it would have been only in their hearts back then, since it could only be freely expressed a posteriori, in writings done after the totalitarian government had no more power over the German people following its military defeat. Xufanc (talk) 01:06, 13 February 2017 (UTC)


My apologies. https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Reichskolonialbund&type=revision&diff=599479653&oldid=561293009 is the correct link including the word choice of "conjecture". I agree that Germans had to accept the policy due to the commands from the hierarchy of Hitler as the time. However, I am not fully sure that the word choice of conjecture is suited since as you said "Gleichschaltung" was not something the citizens of the German nation were in the position to oppose. Could you clarify for me please? Danielle 1944 (talk) 01:57, 15 February 2017 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for May 10Edit

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Blue Ensign, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Weihaiwei. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Doi Lan (Phi Pan Nam Range)Edit

As you wrote the article on Doi Lan (Phi Pan Nam Range) some years ago - I am trying to match this hill with those bot-created on the cebuano wikipedia, and it seems that at the given location actually there is a hill named Doi Ian. While this could have happened by confusing the capital I with a small l, but the Thai name in the article is really Lan, Ian is spelled differently. Do you maybe still have any resources which could match the two names, and especially which name in the more common one. andy (talk) 23:18, 20 October 2017 (UTC)

It is a transcription error into Latin script as you point out. It was most likely in the source I consulted back then about mountains near Thoeng, but I can't check it now because it is a permanent dead link. It made sense because Doi Lan or Loi Lan (Bald Hill) is a very common name in the area for mountains where the terrain at the summit does not allow the forest trees to grow and is grassy or rocky. The name Doi Ian ("Fed up with it Hill" or "Sick of it Hill") is very uncommon. Thank you for telling me about this. Even in Thai Wikipedia nobody noticed. Now I have made two separate articles. Xufanc (talk) 14:46, 21 October 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for clearing this up, I now adjusted the items on Wikidata accordingly as well - there was one bot-created article on the real Doi Lan already to be merged. andy (talk) 22:31, 21 October 2017 (UTC)

New Page ReviewingEdit

Hello, Xufanc.

As one of Wikipedia's most experienced editors,
Would you please consider becoming a New Page Reviewer? Reviewing/patrolling a page doesn't take much time but it requires a good understanding of Wikipedia policies and guidelines; currently Wikipedia needs experienced users at this task. (After gaining the flag, patrolling is not mandatory. One can do it at their convenience). But kindly read the tutorial before making your decision. Thanks. — Insertcleverphrasehere (or here) 05:42, 26 December 2017 (UTC)

Would you please consider becoming an Articles for Creation reviewer? Articles for Creation reviewers help new users learn the ropes of creating their first articles, and identify whether topics are suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia. Reviewing drafts doesn't take much time but it requires a good understanding of Wikipedia inclusion policies and guidelines; currently Wikipedia needs experienced users at this task. (After requesting to be added to the project, reviewing is not mandatory. One can do it at their convenience). But kindly read the reviewing instructions before making your decision.

April 2018 Milhist Backlog DriveEdit

G'day all, please be advised that throughout April 2018 the Military history Wikiproject is running its annual backlog elimination drive. This will focus on several key areas:

  • tagging and assessing articles that fall within the project's scope
  • adding or improving listed resources on Milhist's task force pages
  • updating the open tasks template on Milhist's task force pages
  • creating articles that are listed as "requested" on the project's various lists of missing articles.

As with past Milhist drives, there are points awarded for working on articles in the targeted areas, with barnstars being awarded at the end for different levels of achievement.

The drive is open to all Wikipedians, not just members of the Military history project, although only work on articles that fall (broadly) within the scope of military history will be considered eligible. This year, the Military history project would like to extend a specific welcome to members of Wikipedia:WikiProject Women in Red, and we would like to encourage all participants to consider working on helping to improve our coverage of women in the military. This is not the sole focus of the edit-a-thon, though, and there are aspects that hopefully will appeal to pretty much everyone.

The drive starts at 00:01 UTC on 1 April and runs until 23:59 UTC on 30 April 2018. Those interested in participating can sign up here.

Move page to Phu TabberkEdit

Hello Xufanc - sorry - I deleted my wish to move the page "Phu Thap Boek" to "Phu Tabberk" again. The title is okay. The first read introduction and link number 5 led me on the wrong track of the "Phu Tabberk". With kind regards --KusiD (talk) 11:43, 24 July 2018 (UTC)

  • Well - the longer I deal with this post - I'm convinced that my first thought was not so bad after all. You certainly do not describe the "Phu Thap Boek" here. This starts with the height of the mountain, followed by the location, the management, the inhabitants and so on. My suggestion is now: because the title does not fit the post, it would have to be changed to "Phu Tabberk". I would make the necessary adjustments. Since my English (as Swiss) is not as good as yours, I would be glad if you would read my changes. With kind regards --KusiD (talk) 12:44, 24 July 2018 (UTC)
KusiD and Paul_012, sorry for the delay in replying. I remember I used Thai military maps when I did some of these mountain articles. But since my wife had a massive stroke I am checking Wikipedia only irregularly. It is possible that there is a confusion. please give me some time.Xufanc (talk) 15:27, 10 August 2018 (UTC)
Terribly sorry to hear about that—hope she recovers well. I'll see what I can do with the article in the mean time. --Paul_012 (talk) 08:34, 11 August 2018 (UTC)

Phu Thap BoekEdit

Hi. If you have time, you might want to re-check the article, as it seems to include a confusion between Phu Thap Boek and Phu Man Khao, which are two separate peaks. Thanks. --Paul_012 (talk) 03:19, 10 August 2018 (UTC)

Manipur (princely state)Edit

Hello Xufanc, thank you for creating pages like Manipur (princely state). According to Xtools, 77% of the content is yours, and most of it is probably good.

But I also find edits like this, which added unsourced content under existing citations. Such edits destroy WP:Text-source integrity. We don't know in the end, what part is sourced and what part is not. Our only recourse is to delete everything and start from scratch again. I hope we don't need to do that with this article, but I notice that there are some extremely controversial issues that need care in treatment. So at least some of this content will have to go. Cheers, Kautilya3 (talk) 10:07, 18 August 2018 (UTC)

Dear Kautilya3, all this was many years ago. My wife had a massive stroke in 2016 and is paralyzed at home. I am looking after her and am not writing any lengthy articles for Wikipedia such as Manipur (princely state) anymore. I can't even recall the circumstances. Please do as you see fit.Xufanc (talk) 21:27, 20 August 2018 (UTC)
Thank you for responding despite your difficult circumstances. Please don't worry about it. I can sort it out. All the best with your family! -- Kautilya3 (talk) 21:33, 20 August 2018 (UTC)

After a successful first iteration of the “Months of African Cinema” last year, we are happy to announce that it will be happening again this year, starting from October 1! In the 2018 edition of the contest, about 600 Wikipedia articles were created in at least 8 languages. There were also contributions to Wikidata and Wikimedia commons, which brought the total number of wikimedia pages created during the contest to over 1,000.

The AfroCine Project welcomes you to October, the first out of the two months which have been dedicated to creating and improving content that centre around the cinema of Africa, the Caribbean, and the diaspora. Join us in this global edit-a-thon, by helping to create or expand articles which are connected to this scope. Also remember to list your name under the participants section.

On English Wikipedia, we would be recognizing participants in the following manner:

  • Overall winner (1st, 2nd, 3rd places)
  • Diversity winner
  • Gender-gap fillers
For further information about the contest, the recognition categories and how to participate, please visit the contest page here. For further inquiries, please leave comments on the contest talkpage or on the main project talkpage. See you around :).--Jamie Tubers (talk) 00:50, 30 September 2019 (UTC)

Anyuyskiy and Aluchin (volcano)Edit

Greetings,

are there sources for the edits on Aluchin (volcano) and Anyuyskiy? Also, I am not sure that https://basov-chukotka.livejournal.com/368102.html На Анюйском вулкане satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for appropriate sources. Jo-Jo Eumerus (talk) 09:55, 15 December 2019 (UTC)

Anyuyskiy is an incomplete name. It is the genitive form of "Anyuy" in the Russian language (of Anyuy). For example, the mountain chain is named "Anyuyskiy Khrebet" in Russian (the mountains of Anyuy). The volcano would be "Anyuyskiy Vulkan". The other sources in the article also mention "The first data on isotopic age of Anyui volcano (Chukotka)", "Anyui Volcano in Chukotka...", etc. The "На Анюйском вулкане" page may not be appropriate from an academic point of view, but it mentions the complete name of the volcano. For Aluchin, I added an infobox, no extra information.Xufanc (talk)
