De ce nu ma ajuti si tu Francis? --Brasoveanul 06:20, 19 June 2006 (UTC)


Salut Prietene! Ti-a fost dor de mine? Cand mai putem vorbi impreuna? Mi-e dor de conversatiile noastre, da-i pace la Node, el stie ca a pierdut. Nu se poate lupta impotriva unui popor intreg :) --Fratele lui Bonaparte, il cunosti? 10:48, 23 June 2006 (UTC)


for you support on --Baybak 13:30, 9 July 2006 (UTC)


Possibly, you could reconsider your opposing the Requests_for_new_languages#Belarusian_.28Orthography_Revision_of_1959.29_.2810_support_.2F_3_oppose.29? The possibility of automated showing of Belarusian text in diff. orthographies is, by far, a myth. There are also significant and growing differences in lexics used, pointed out in meta discussion in request, and there exists nothing conceivable to handle them. Finally, there is talk on orthography, but diffs exist in syntax and morphology scopes, too. --- 08:11, 10 August 2006 (UTC)

Broad Public Media Re-Evaluation[edit]

Why did you delete my entry from Jimbo's $100 mil copyright list? (reply to

> How about a non-profit company (like Wikipedia?) that maintains websites to record detailed public voting on all current issues:

> - Public rating of copyright, patent law, international issues
> - Public rating for the 'actual', ie. cultural-historical, value of works as opposed to their resell value
> - Public rating of video games
> - Public rating of specific areas of govt spending (arts, military, etc.)
> - Public rating for the value of specific research: biomedical, nuclear, arts, energy

> > These would be comparative public ratings shown along with actual (relative) costs in each area. The idea being to help society redefine value in all areas. Minimal security similar to Wikipedia's "peer pressure method", and with user accounts asking users to register demographic backgrounds. Only one vote allowed per user per area per year. Viewers could view and filter the data based on income, region, ethnicity, etc. No debates (maybe in separate area), just straight voting data. > > Operated as a scientific service (ie. data-driven), the goal being to allow everyone to directly see the global social progress of what we actually value in comparison to how we spend.

Padonki test[edit]

I beg your pardon for disturb you, but Padonki test, denied by community, is still not deleted in Incubator. The test contains only original research, abusive and humoristic "articles" whithout any encyclpaedic meaning. There are many protest of native speakers of slvaic languages against that: The test is almost inactive, only one teenager fanatic still write there. The test is abusive for many East Slavs, because the abusive words which are used there are indecent in books and encyclopaedias according to Slavic Culture. Are there any procedure to delete denied tests from incubator? --Yaroslav Zolotaryov 00:56, 1 November 2006 (UTC)

Here you have given a very interesting link. But I don't understand where is there the translation machine itself? Is it availiable for download? Don Alessandro 19:18, 18 April 2007 (UTC)
