Re: Zhelyu Zhelev[edit]

I noticed that you credited Zhelyu Zhelev as a founder of the Rousse Committee. You wouldn't happen to have a source for that would you? Thanks 129.64.9.85 01:00, 24 March 2007 (UTC)


Re: Carl Palmer[edit]

I just deleted the "Fying Hat Band" part you added to Carl Palmer. Carl never played in that band, it was his brother Steve Palmer. Just to let you know.

Bye,

68.196.187.85

better known as www.jpfo.org - too lazy to sign in.

Re: Carl Palmer[edit]

I never edited Carl Palmer's profile - plus, it was his brother Steven who played drums in the Flying Hat Band.

Sorry then![edit]

OK, sorry, I thought it was you who added the FHB piece. And I just said the same thing.

Anyway, I see from your page that you like three things that I also like - Nietzsche, Heavy Metal and economics! Maybe you can write something about the FHB. I've heard that their album was released a coupla years ago, but I can't confirm this.

All Good![edit]

The Flying Hat Band's album was never officially released. As you may know, Vertigo thought it sounds too much like Black Sabbath and put it in the vault. Until one or two years ago, Gary of the Rockdetecor website used to own the original recording, but he has since passed it on to Glenn Tipton. So whether the album will ever surface is now entirely up to Glenn, but I sure hope he will decide to put it out somehow. Maybe even package it together with the much-anticipated follow-up to 1996 solo effort Baptizm of Fire?

However, I do own a four-song demo of the FHB that was released by a now-defunct German label in 1992. It is in fact a split with Attrobus and is no rarity, but in case you don't have it I'll gladly share it with you, just let me know.

Thanks Dude![edit]

That's really nice of you. I wasn't exactly sure of Attrobus - if it was an FHB or Al Atkins. As a matter of fact I grew out this whole collecting thing, a few years back I sold my entire Priest vinyl collection (over 400 pcs!). I'm just curious to hear their early stuff - what did the "real" rock-rolla sound like, the original "Caviar and Meths", "Holy Is The Man" etc. I know that this Sharpe guy had a lot of demos, but in my day he was loathed by all priest fans as he didn't want to trade or sell them for anything. There was also a rumor that he had the SAW demos... who knows... Anyways, if you have this FHB on digital I'd be glad to give 'em a listen, you can email them leatherrebel74@yahoo.com otherwise don't bother. Thanks,

www.jpfo.org

1972 Demo[edit]

Check your e-mail, dude, I've got something for you there.

This is actually not a Priest demo, but a Flying Hat Band demo. It's a split with another defunct British band called Attrobus, and there are only four FHB songs on it, but they're pretty awesome. Just makes me even more curious to hear the full album they recorded with Vertigo.

True, Sharpe-Young has quite the collection, or so rumour has it. I have no idea if he owns a copy of the SAW demos, but from what Rob Halford has been sayign they're well locked up. Although Gary has proven himself very good at obtaining rare stuff. I know Rob has a huge collection of unreleased Priest material at his Phoenix house, but who knows if any of it will ever see the light of day.

Check your e-mail and let me know what do you think.

Thanks You're The Man![edit]

I mean the Holy (is the) Man! I thaught 'Attrobus' was FHB's album title. In any event, I'm going to do 2 things now

1. I'll check my email 2. I'm going to break into Rob's house and lay a hand on those old tapes. Maybe I'll even make a buck on ebay, LOL!

Thanks dude!

Oh, just one thing, how can I find out how many records an artist sold? The other day I was talking to someone who only listens to classical, and we spoke about how much pop sells, and who are the biggest. I said Beatles, Stones, Madonna, Zeppelin, Kiss, AC/DC, Purple, Floyd. Then I read somewhere that I only got a few right - so where do I find this info?

THX.

Men and the Man[edit]

Be careful breaking into Rob's house... You might get lucky, he-he-he.

On a more serious note, if you're willing to pay for record sales data then I suggest you go to Nielsen SounsScan and get all the data by paying. If you're just inetesred in general sales level (in the U.S.) the RIAA official website should be enough.

http://www.riaa.com/gp/database/default.asp - Searchable database; http://www.riaa.com/gp/bestsellers/topartists.asp - Top artists ever.

Currently, the Beatles, Elvis and Zeppelin and the top three best-selling artists in the U.S. A year or so ago Zepp was number two, but I guess the recent releases of Elvis stuff sold real well.

Interesting Numbers![edit]

I was quite surprised to see a few things... I'd like to know global figures though. Europe is probably less rock and more pop. I thought Michael Jackson was all the way up... Fleetwood Mac was a surprise - I didn't know they were selling records LOL! Plus a bunch I never heard of! You ever heard about George Strait or Brooks Garth??? I also see priest were at their peak sales-wise in the late 80'es - that's when all their albums went gold... Who cares anyway? If I like it I'll listen to it whether it sold 4 copies or 4 billion... Just interesting to see what people listen to in the world.

Old Macedonian[edit]

If you are going to make edits on the Old Church Slavonic page, it is essential you acquire these handbooks:

  • Grigore Nandris, Handbook of Old Church Slavonic: I Grammar (London: The Athlone Press, 1959)
  • William Schmalstieg, An Introduction to Old Church Slavonic (Slavica, 1992)
  • Horace Lunt, Old Church Slavonic Grammar (The Hague: Mouton, 2002)

These are the best general OCS works in English and are the sort of reputable publications we should represent on the OCS entry. Now, be aware that the term "Old Macedonian" is widely used in English, as a glimpse at the introduction to these handbooks would show. The speech of Sts Cyril and Methodius was that of Thessalonki, which is squarely inside the region historically called "Macedonia". The term also helps to avoid confusion between the speech of Sts Cyril and Methodius and the considerable different dialect of later scribes in Moravia (Old West Slavonic) and the slightly different dialect of later scribes in Bulgaria (Old Bulgarian). This nomenclature was adopted long before current wars between Bulgarians, Macedonians, and Greeks over the existence of a separate Macedonian people and the term "Old Macedonian" implies no connection with the current inhabitants of FYROM Macedonia. 05:58, 12 December 2005 (UTC)

Wikimedia Canada[edit]

Hi there! I'd like to invite you to explore Wikimedia Canada, and create a list of people interested in forming a local chapter for our nation. A local chapter will help promote and improve the organization, within our great nation. We'd also like to encourage everyone to suggest projects for our national chapter to participate in. Hope to see you there!--DarkEvil 14:44, 5 February 2006 (UTC)

Samuil[edit]

Why did you remove a large amount of text without explanation? Please use edit summaries so your edits are not mistaken for vandalism.Thank you. Johann Wolfgang 00:48, 26 February 2006 (UTC)

Re: Samuil[edit]

You are right, my bad. However, the text under "Other theories" is absolutely ridiculous, claiming Tsar Samuil's life is the "established theory"? There is absolutely no sense or least of all any proof that Samuil was anything but a Tsar of Bulgaria.

A group of people are twisting historical facts to suit their political views. What if I went ahead and claimed that Caesar was Emperor of Rome only by "the established — and internationally accepted — theory"?

I see your point, however I do not know anything at all about Samuil, that said I can not take sides on whether the text is true or not. If you want to remove it you can start a discussion on the talk page for consensus (this may not work in this situation though), or ask an administrator to intervene. Thank you.

Durzhavna Sigurnost[edit]

Грешката не е само твоя, за втори път се получава така, защото се предоверявам на ботовете, които в българската Уикипедия явно не са много активни по добавянето на междуикита (или може би аз нещо не разбирам от това, което трябва да правят... в en винаги добавям). Иначе да — съдържанието е супер сходно и няма да е проблем сливането.

Не мисля, че статиите за всички подобни служби имат имена на местния език — виж примерно State Security (Czechoslovakia). Освен това остава въпросът дали ще е Darzhavna, Durzhavna, Darjavna, Durjavna, Durzavna, Darzavna... основно заради това предпочетох преведено на английски име.

Australia eVisitor[edit]

Yeah Gday mate. Im wondering if you can colour Australia on the EU Passports and other ETA (Electronic Ticket Authority) Passports as well? This relates to the EU and Australia completed Visa Reciprocal Agreement. The eVisitor replaces the ETA System for EU and other European Passports.Pryde 01 (talk) 02:08, 27 October 2008 (UTC)

G'day mate. I am not sure who did the other maps, is it not Passport guy who takes care of them? I did the one for Bulgaria originally as it was my article. Kroum (talk) 20:02, 27 October 2008 (UTC)

Yeah it is but he hasnt been available in a long time. Do you know someone who could colour Australia on for the EU and ETA Eligible Passports?Pryde 01 (talk) 06:58, 28 October 2008 (UTC)


Image source problem with Image:Yordan Radichkov.jpg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading Image:Yordan Radichkov.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 12:05, 11 November 2008 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Daggerstab (talk) 12:05, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

World Heritage sites in Bulgaria[edit]

Hi, i noticed your edit to create redlink for UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Bulgaria. Great that you are creating a separate list article about that. I am working with others to create a new format for the big World Heritage Site lists. Tables in draft form appear in working page Wikipedia:WikiProject World Heritage Sites/Tables of WHS Sites.

I wonder if you would like a table format like the top one in that page, perhaps, or to start with and modify from. It includes coordinates for all of the sites, and this provides for a Google map link which will allow readers to click once and then see all the sites in Bulgaria shown with little flags, on a Google map, which they can zoom in on and view in satellite view, etc. Let me know if you are interested in collaborating on this. doncram (talk) 17:38, 27 March 2009 (UTC)

Hello Doncram, I will try and convert to the new format when I have time. Cheers! Kroum (talk) 20:54, 27 March 2009 (UTC)

License tagging for File:Capital-20101210-frontpage.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Capital-20101210-frontpage.png. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information; to add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia.

For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 23:05, 15 December 2010 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for File:Dnevnik-20101216-frontpage.png[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Dnevnik-20101216-frontpage.png. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use. Suggestions on how to do so can be found here.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Do you want to opt out of receiving this notice? Melesse (talk) 05:10, 17 December 2010 (UTC)

Notification of automated file description generation[edit]

Your upload of File:Bulgarian Passport Inside.jpg or contribution to its description is noted, and thanks (even if belatedly) for your contribution. In order to help make better use of the media, an attempt has been made by an automated process to identify and add certain information to the media's description page.

This notification is placed on your talk page because a bot has identified you either as the uploader of the file, or as a contributor to its metadata. It would be appreciated if you could carefully review the information the bot added. To opt out of these notifications, please follow the instructions here. Thanks! Message delivered by Theo's Little Bot (opt-out) 14:30, 2 March 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for September 21[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Dallas Toler-Wade, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page George Kollias. 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.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 11:07, 21 September 2015 (UTC)

Article upgrade assistance request (Pre-translation stage)[edit]

Seasons Greetings,

This is in reference to a relatively new umbrella article on en-wikipedia named Ceremonial pole. Ceremonial pole is a human tradition since ancient times; either existed in past at some point of time, or still exists in some cultures across global continents from north to south & from east to west. Ceremonial poles are used to symbolize a variety of concepts in several different world cultures.

Through article Ceremonial pole we intend to take encyclopedic note of cultural aspects and festive celebrations around Ceremonial pole as an umbrella article and want to have historical, mythological, anthropological aspects, reverence or worships wherever concerned as a small part.

While Ceremonial poles have a long past and strong presence but usually less discussed subject. Even before we seek translation of this article in global languages, we need to have more encyclopedic information/input about Ceremonial poles from all global cultures and languages. And we seek your assistance in the same.

Since other contributors to the article are insisting for reliable sources and Standard native english; If your contributions get deleted (for some reason like linguistics or may be your information is reliable but unfortunately dosent match expectations of other editors) , please do list the same on Talk:Ceremonial pole page so that other wikipedians may help improve by interlanguage collaborations, and/or some other language wikipedias may be interested in giving more importance to reliablity of information over other factors on their respective wikipedia.

This particular request is being made to you since your user name is listed in Wikipedia:Translators available list.

Thanking you with warm regards Mahitgar (talk) 05:14, 24 October 2015 (UTC)
