De actionibus Vestrae Excellentiae[fontem recensere]

Gratias maximas ago Vestrae Excellentiae, sed Latina mea, heu, pessima est. Studeo hanc tres vel quattuor menses.Товарищ герцог Мальборо (disputatio) 18:50, 9 Decembris 2017 (UTC)

De Dundate, politico Anglico[fontem recensere]

Salvete! Si vultis, potestis corrigere meos errores huius paginae.Товарищ герцог Мальборо (disputatio) 16:12, 9 Decembris 2017 (UTC)

Gratias tibi ago; paginam mox inspiciam ad errores corrigendos -- si errores insunt! A. Mahoney (disputatio) 16:32, 9 Decembris 2017 (UTC)

Bella civilia[fontem recensere]

I combined your page with the already-existing Bellum civile: but I don't know, in fact, whether you intended to write only about the Roman civil war(s), or a page about civil war in general.

See Categoria:Bella civilia, and please feel free to improve the relevant pages: they need all the improvement they can get :) Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 17:59, 16 Novembris 2010 (UTC)

I saw your note on the Taberna. Excellent news! Keep on doing this! Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 20:38, 16 Martii 2011 (UTC)

De 1000 paginis[fontem recensere]

In Theoria numerorum, vide historiam mutationum: "Amahoney (Disputatio | conlationes) m (10 593 octeti)." Ooh! Getting close! But to clear the 10,000 bar and therefore gain 0.04 instead of 0.01, the text will need to be bigger than about 12500 octeti. That's because the octeti comprising the interwiki links (and maybe a few really minor things) are deducted from the official total. I myself just raised Atheismus and Bellum Centum Annorum above the 10,000 level, thanks to information in the new update of Paginae sizes, so our score should have a noticeable rise this month.‎ Good luck! IacobusAmor 16:11, 26 Maii 2011 (UTC)

Yes -- in fact, the interwiki links add up to about 1900 bytes, so I need a little over 4000 more. Hope to get there before the next update of the official scores! We'll break the 20-point barrier for sure, maybe even 21. A. Mahoney 16:24, 26 Maii 2011 (UTC)
21.00 looks out of the question for this month; I'd guess we stand at around 20.16 right now. IacobusAmor 17:19, 28 Maii 2011 (UTC)
You're right; I guess we don't get a blue ribbon for growth this month! You've definitely done most of the work on this one -- I've added a handful of math pages but you've written a lot more. I have a couple I want to work on for my summer and fall classes, though, which might get us a few points in June as well. Onward and upward! A. Mahoney 17:27, 28 Maii 2011 (UTC)
Excelsior! But don't be modest: among the 1000 pages, you've probably added more verbiage. And we have to remember that the big prize, 0.09 points, is for articles exceeding 30,000 octeti. In these respects, Usor:Secundus Zephyrus/1000 paginae sizes is quite helpful. To reorder that list by size, click on the object that looks like a bow tie. IacobusAmor 17:49, 28 Maii 2011 (UTC)
Yes, I've been using the page and I'm glad SZ has just updated it. I'd love to get Mathematica up to 30K but that may take more work than I'm going to do this week. Nothing else near that boundary in my own areas of interest (I don't know anywhere near enough about, say, Islam). A. Mahoney 18:03, 28 Maii 2011 (UTC)

De stipulis[fontem recensere]

Salve, A. Mahoney! Te scio non nulla scripsisse in Taberna de stipulis creandis. Egomet nescio quo modo rem male gessisse videor, neque Andreas scit quid esset, quod male gessi. Si tibi placet, et si tempus habes, quae scripsi hac in Disputatione lege! Cura ut valeas, Mattie 23:48, 20 Septembris 2011 (UTC)

Nexus[fontem recensere]

Salve from me too! I saw your note at Britanniarum Regnum. You were right to wonder, I think. As on other wikis, there was a tendency here to overlink just because one can. If you're editing a heavily-linked page, feel free to reduce linking to what might be useful in context to an intelligent reader! Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 19:10, 21 Octobris 2011 (UTC)

I see I'm not the only one who checks Nuper mutata from time to time! I've just discovered "Check Wikipedia" and was looking around at some of the markup errors noted there: this kind of cleanup is easy to do in between meetings and so on. A. Mahoney 20:30, 21 Octobris 2011 (UTC)

Professorship[fontem recensere]

Salve iterum! Cum gradum suscepturus sim, meae cursus vitae sane mihi excogitandus est. I'm interested in professorship -- I thought I could perhaps teach linguistics or certain languages. (Or both ... I don't know what people usually do.) Since that's what you're doing, I was wondering whether you could give me pointers as to what I should study in university, as well as give me an idea of the kind of work you do (I think most professors do research on top of teaching, right? does a language professor do the same?). Naturally, I wouldn't be asking if I'd been able to find something on Google! :D Thank you, Mattie 23:32, 24 Octobris 2011 (UTC)

My goodness, what a response! :D I'll answer you more thoroughly when I have more time, but thank you for taking the time to write all that. I appreciate it and it's very helpful! Mattie 02:38, 26 Octobris 2011 (UTC)
Just in case you didn't see it -- I answered you. Mattie 00:36, 2 Novembris 2011 (UTC)
(and again) Mattie 01:30, 5 Novembris 2011 (UTC)

Nova stipula desiderata[fontem recensere]

Ave, amica! In case you have time, we need {{echinodermata-stipula}}. Or show me (again?) where the instructions for devising stipulas might be? IacobusAmor 18:40, 2 Novembris 2011 (UTC)

RE: illae mille paginae[fontem recensere]

I'm sorry it's been so long! I've been so busy...just graduated and I've been looking for work. I just tried running the script, and I got a syntax error, which is strange because I haven't changed any of the syntax since I last ran it. I'll try rolling back to an older version of the application... --SECUNDUS ZEPHYRUS 01:04, 5 Novembris 2011 (UTC)

Factum est! --SECUNDUS ZEPHYRUS 02:23, 5 Novembris 2011 (UTC)

Tibi gratias ago![fontem recensere]

Thanks for your explanation. May I ask your help for the future? See you soon

Rex Momo 06:56, 26 Ianuarii 2012 (UTC)

yes, of course: around here we all help each other out! A. Mahoney 13:00, 26 Ianuarii 2012 (UTC)

Tabula 1000 paginarum[fontem recensere]

Thanks to your table of these articles, I've done some precisely focused work on these pages, trying (in various ways in various articles) to raise our point score, our median, and our mean. You and Andrew seem to have worked similarly. Maybe after the semester ends we could designate a mensis 1000 paginarum, when everybody tries to enlarge & improve these pages. IacobusAmor 17:22, 31 Ianuarii 2012 (UTC)

I've been noticing: you've done a lot on these, especially all those rivers and seas -- I'm impressed. I'm working on mathematical pages again and generally trying to tidy up loose ends. I like the idea of a "mensis millepaginia" -- let's propose it for, say, June.
I've also looked a bit at what would happen if those new 2-decimal weights were implemented; we'd go down from 1.1 to 1.07. That would affect a few of our pages -- anything that is presently less than 10281 would fall to below 10000, A. Mahoney 17:31, 31 Ianuarii 2012 (UTC)
That's why I added a few hundred characters to Animalia and Hispania, the articles just above the 10K cutoff, lest they inadvertently slip below it. IacobusAmor 17:40, 31 Ianuarii 2012 (UTC)
and anything less than 30842 would be below 30000. Since there seems to be some consensus around the extra digits, if the new weights get implemented at all, we may want to keep an eye on pages that might drop to a lower category. A. Mahoney 17:31, 31 Ianuarii 2012 (UTC)
Yes, but the most endangered, Mathematica, is in your bailiwick! ¶ I'd like to do more today, since it's the end of the month, but work in the real world (tm) seems to be impinging on my free time. :/ IacobusAmor 17:40, 31 Ianuarii 2012 (UTC)
Got Mathematica half an hour ago! :-) Personally, I'm through with classes for the day, so am indulging myself with Lingua Hebraica for a bit. It beats grading Greek quizzes! A. Mahoney 17:44, 31 Ianuarii 2012 (UTC)
Excellent! Just import the bibliography from de:Hebräische Sprache and you're over 10K! IacobusAmor 18:27, 31 Ianuarii 2012 (UTC)
good thinking: I've taken goodies from several versions and my own library catalog, and we're in business. A. Mahoney 18:56, 31 Ianuarii 2012 (UTC)

Running the script?[fontem recensere]

Is there a chance you could run your script so we can see how closely its figures match the official figures? We'll already have to allow for the 938 characters that I've added to Karachi today, which presumably won't be counted in the official figures for January, and others of the 1000 pages will soon be diverging more & more from their status at the end of 31 January 2012. IacobusAmor 18:24, 1 Februarii 2012 (UTC)

Can do. I've just kicked it off; it's pretty quick. A. Mahoney 19:49, 1 Februarii 2012 (UTC)
... and there it is. A. Mahoney 19:59, 1 Februarii 2012 (UTC)

Fora[fontem recensere]

If you can think of a good Latin collective term for the Imperial fora, please suggest it now! Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 21:34, 9 Februarii 2012 (UTC)

Testing[fontem recensere]

It's fine of course. I've deleted "Page" now as you requested. Always feel free to experiment! It is probably more likely that you'll be questioned by cross-wiki timelords if you happen to be using an IP address: they are very clever at detecting unexplained anonymous activity. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 18:24, 9 Martii 2012 (UTC)

As they should. Since I was trying to learn how to run a bot and, in particular, how to get it to sign on, it ended up appearing as my IP rather than me -- which was instructive, and as may be obvious from Nuper mutata, I could immediately correct the program and make it do what I wanted. Miraculously, no actual pages got messed up! A. Mahoney (disputatio) 18:32, 9 Martii 2012 (UTC)

Limes[fontem recensere]

See my note at Disputatio:Limes (mathematica). Could you if possible add interwiki links to the page? Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 12:59, 24 Martii 2012 (UTC)

Easy; I've reciprocally linked with English, and bots should fill in the rest shortly. A. Mahoney (disputatio) 19:54, 25 Martii 2012 (UTC)

Feel free to comment at Disputatio:Lingua Vallonica if you have a view! Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 09:23, 10 Maii 2012 (UTC)

Welcome[fontem recensere]

Congratulations and welcome! You will already have noticed, probably, that you have new options under the little grey arrow at top right, and also the option for a one-keystroke "revert" in article histories. What fun you'll have ... Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 10:24, 25 Augusti 2012 (UTC)

A little scary, but I won't let it go to my head! :-) I'll read "new admin school" in :en relatively soon, and hope we don't actually need much administrative work! Thanks for proposing me. A. Mahoney (disputatio) 19:52, 25 Augusti 2012 (UTC)

Thanks[fontem recensere]

Well done for finding the Catalan version of "Treaty of Gisors". I would never have thought of looking there ... but they are very enterprising Wikipedians. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 08:28, 11 Septembris 2012 (UTC)

You're welcome! Actually, I started with Gisors in French, found a general page on all the treaties there (who knew there were so many?), and went from there to Catalan. As you note, they've got everything! I like the puzzle of finding inter-wiki links so it's one of the things I do in spare moments between classes. A. Mahoney (disputatio) 12:11, 11 Septembris 2012 (UTC)

and again[fontem recensere]

I'm glad you noticed about the pagina mensis. I promised to do this job when Mattie couldn't, but although I'd noticed Mattie wasn't around much (very busy, I suspect), I failed to make the mental leap. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 16:17, 1 Novembris 2012 (UTC)

Mattie is in his first term at University. I advise first-years here, so I know how busy he probably is! I'm having a crazy semester too, but at least I can do some minor housekeeping in between reading students' draft essays, grading quizzes, and going to meetings. Makes me feel useful, ya know? :-) A. Mahoney (disputatio) 16:28, 1 Novembris 2012 (UTC)

De rebus Indicis[fontem recensere]

Please glance at Disputatio:Ardzuna. I was about to move to "Arjuna" when it struck me that you might vote for "Arjunus" ... Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 13:22, 9 Decembris 2012 (UTC)

Buckyball at nano[fontem recensere]

That bucky ball at the nano tek page is a great addition and very illustrative!Jondel (disputatio) 07:27, 17 Decembris 2012 (UTC)

I agree -- but I can't take any credit for it: you added that picture back in January! :-) A. Mahoney (disputatio) 21:02, 17 Decembris 2012 (UTC)

Rotundo foramen[fontem recensere]

Ave Mahonia. In pagina usoris tua potes vidi linguam Graecam antiquam. Egomet paulum Graecae modernae loquor. Similiter antiqua est.

De profundis bananis[fontem recensere]

To make proper use of the interwiki orphan Banana (fruit) I have extended it and made it match the English en:Banana (fruit) -- which is one of the thousand and was formerly, wrongly, linked to our Musa (genus). I also renamed my page to Musa (fructus) because that seems clearly to be the best-attested Latin name. I've updated the links at Wikidata and added the 1000 tag, but if you can think of anything else that needs to be done to ensure our Musa (fructus) is counted instead of our Musa (genus), please do it! Thanks, Anne! Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 19:17, 28 Aprilis 2013 (UTC)

It looks right: the link visible at en:Banana this morning (well, it's morning in Boston -- I realize you're finishing up lunch!) is to our Musa (fructus), as desired. Since the fruit page is twice as long as the genus page, we will actually gain points in our score as a result --- which is excellent since none of the rest of us has had a chance to increase anything this month. So thank you, Andrew! A. Mahoney (disputatio) 12:19, 29 Aprilis 2013 (UTC)
Ahem. Vide Haydn. One tends to think of the 1000 pages toward the end of the month. IacobusAmor (disputatio) 12:51, 29 Aprilis 2013 (UTC)
Spiffy! Thank you! I'd been thinking of getting to that one today or tomorrow; I'm glad old Papa Haydn hasn't been neglected. (And I also think he's a good addition to the list.) All I've been able to do is keep up with Wikidata links -- Tokium is surprisingly complicated; see talk pages in :en and :d for the whole soap opera. A. Mahoney (disputatio) 12:57, 29 Aprilis 2013 (UTC)

Vicipaedia:Qualitas paginarum[fontem recensere]

I moved Neander's description of a stipula to this page (because I think he was describing something more than what we have up to now allowed to be a stipula) and added some stuff of my own. Please consider whether I've done well or badly, and boldly change if necessary. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 15:43, 13 Iulii 2013 (UTC)

I agree, and I've added a further point, that articles in Latin WP should somehow have to do with Latinitas sensu latiori -- else, why are we here? But this may not find universal acclaim! A. Mahoney (disputatio) 19:57, 13 Iulii 2013 (UTC)
Hmm, I think that could arouse some discussion when it's noticed. Latinitas spreads very wide, of course, but maybe not quite as far as pop music, video games and television comedy ... I shall observe with interest! Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 13:54, 16 Iulii 2013 (UTC)

Brachmacottus[fontem recensere]

There is useful (if extremely scholarly) material in the introduction (which is in vol. 1) to the text edition to which I've just added a link. Don't know if you've already looked. I am very far from being a mathematician, but I could get some biographical stuff out of there. On the other hand, you are a mathematician, and if you fancy developing the article as a whole, I have lots of other things to do as well! Up to you Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 13:54, 16 Iulii 2013 (UTC)

thank you! I'd noticed the changes to The List the other day and figured I'd tidy things up in the office today, around class (Ad Familiares this morning, Brutus on Thursday -- have to explain "s.v.b.e.e.q.v" and the like in about 10 minutes). I'll move the article from micro-barely-acceptable-stub to quasi-stipes over the course of the week; you are welcome to play, too, but your time may be better applied elsewhere! A. Mahoney (disputatio) 14:15, 16 Iulii 2013 (UTC)
I'll leave it to you for the present, then :) Vol. 1 takes a measurable time to download. It is a copy of one of those standard Sanskrit editions of the thirties, but with a very long introduction in English. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 14:22, 16 Iulii 2013 (UTC)

Abbasids[fontem recensere]

Hi, Anne. As far as I'm concerned, yes, go ahead and make a page for Caliphatus Abbasidarum. No doubt there needs to be one. I can't now remember the reason why I edited Wikidata on this subject! don't worry, take it on from here. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 18:45, 30 Augusti 2013 (UTC)

good luck[fontem recensere]

In Italian we say "in bocca al lupo" for your exam. good luck!--Helveticus montanus (disputatio) 17:07, 18 Decembris 2013 (UTC)

Praedicans[fontem recensere]

Interesting article Logica. But where are you getting 'praedicans' from? In medieval logic (where nearly all logical terminology was derived from) it would be 'praedicatum' to go with 'subiectum'. Also 'de generibus propositionum' is not right. (a) The section only covers the 4 categorical forms, and there are many other 'genera' of propositions than that. Also, the medievals were more likely to say 'de divisione propositionum'. Regards Edward Buckner (disputatio) 18:07, 30 Martii 2014 (UTC)

At this point I don't remember where I found praedicans; you're welcome to correct it, and, indeed, to expand on the article as much as you like. My own interest is in mathematical logic, sort of a different breed of cat, so your expertise will be quite useful here! A. Mahoney (disputatio) 12:43, 31 Martii 2014 (UTC)

Questions[fontem recensere]

Well, requests, really:

1. Any chance you could make the "Formula:Listen" work in We Shall Overcome? IacobusAmor (disputatio) 23:23, 31 Iulii 2014 (UTC)
2. Any chance you could run this program soon? I've been trying to find links for (some of) my creations. IacobusAmor (disputatio) 23:23, 31 Iulii 2014 (UTC)
3. Is there a way of adding Petrus Seeger to the 10,000 pages? He's more important (singer, instrumentalist, composer, political organizer, educationalist, conservationist, author, and even documentary filmmaker) than many individuals already there! IacobusAmor (disputatio) 23:23, 31 Iulii 2014 (UTC)
1. Shouldn't be too hard: I'll take a look.
2. I'll do it Tuesday when I'm on campus; can't run it from home :-(
3. Go over to Meta and get into the discussion: you'll need to propose someone to remove from the list (just as for the good old 1000 pages), but that shouldn't be too hard -- look at all the movie stars and pop singers. The list is pretty volatile, and less contentious than the smaller list, so far anyway; you probably won't get flamed. A. Mahoney (disputatio) 14:14, 1 Augusti 2014 (UTC)
I've just run the non-linked pages utility -- there are about 50 fewer than the last time, which is good! A. Mahoney (disputatio) 17:17, 5 Augusti 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for your good work! Btw, the people responsible for updating the calculations for the 1000-page list seem to have gone fishing. See the discussion here. :( IacobusAmor (disputatio) 20:00, 11 Augusti 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, I noticed that; I gather the program is kind of a pig to run, though, so I'm not volunteering to install the necessary utilities and commit to doing it myself -- anyone who steps in while MarsRover is on vacation (or whatever the deal is) may get asked to maintain it permanently, which I don't want to do. Meanwhile, we can go gather extra points, I suppose! A. Mahoney (disputatio) 18:01, 12 Augusti 2014 (UTC)

Bangalore[fontem recensere]

Hi, Anne. Would you care to comment at Disputatio:Bengalurus? Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 11:45, 2 Septembris 2014 (UTC)

... and here I figured "hui" was some obscure dialect interjection! :-) (I have commented, as you may have seen.) A. Mahoney (disputatio) 17:05, 2 Septembris 2014 (UTC)

Auctor[fontem recensere]

Excellent advice, though the only thing I'm wondering about (putting it here so as not to interlope in that conversation) is auctor vs. scriptor, first because Sallust may actually have used actor, at least according to this note, and also because Cicero and many others seem to have used auctor in the "author of a book" sense.

You're right, of course, inter nos. I know there's a textual problem in the Sallust; and, yes, auctor has to have that sense at least sometimes, or it would be really hard to explain Fr. auteur, En. author, and so on. But for a beginning writer of Latin it's easier to keep it simple; someone still working on case functions is probably better off sticking to simple vocabulary. Beginners need to get used to the idea that Latin words don't always mean the same as their descendants (or loan-words). I guess I tend to be fairly black-and-white in elementary classes, bringing in grey (to say nothing of bright colors) only later on. A. Mahoney (disputatio) 12:14, 16 Septembris 2014 (UTC)
In that case, I agree! and I'm sure that ancient Romans must have felt the other meanings of creator, producer, doer, etc., and the connection to augeo, much more than we do in English with author. Lesgles (disputatio) 21:19, 16 Septembris 2014 (UTC)

Ilias[fontem recensere]

I'm adding some stuff to this page. I noticed you inserted the image of Venetus A and said it was 13th century. Was that a slip? Or are my sources out of date? They say 10th century. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 14:47, 12 Decembris 2014 (UTC)

Has to be a slip: of course it's 10th c, and I know that -- I'd even worked on publishing some digital images for it, years ago. Do fix it! A. Mahoney (disputatio) 15:02, 12 Decembris 2014 (UTC)

While we're asking you ...[fontem recensere]

(see Iacobus's plea elsewhere) ... let me ask you, do you happen to have any views on the question raised by UV and the suggestion I made there? I ask you because, if any bot could adapt the lists mentioned by Lesgles to something that we can work on here, something maybe eventually useful on Meta, it could well be your bot. (My initial thought would be to take the biographies from en:Category:High-importance Women's History articles just once, list them here [with Vicipaedia pages if those already exist], so that we could then manually add more to the list.) Whether or not that's possible, the more significant question is, is it a worthwhile idea? Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 10:03, 22 Ianuarii 2015 (UTC)

It's the start of term here, so I've been doing odd bits of housekeeping in spare moments but haven't had time to weigh in on the larger question. Yes, of course I'm all in favor of more women in VP. One list that no one's mentioned yet is the list of women in Women Writing Latin (ed. Churchill, Brown, Jeffrey, Routledge: 2002). It would also be easy enough, as you surmise, to pull the lists from Meta or :enwiki, since I've got code that does similar stuff. This seems valuable and not too difficult, so I'll put it on my list, around introducing first-years to Catullus and sophomores to Erasmus! :-) A. Mahoney (disputatio) 13:30, 22 Ianuarii 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for responding! Absolutely no hurry. Hope they enjoy their Catullus. I like his adjective "ostreosior" more oysterous. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 13:53, 22 Ianuarii 2015 (UTC)
You're snowed under, eh? I hope the problems soon diminish. I have just started Vicipaedia:Feminae 3000. One may as well be ambitious. Please add names, manually or automatically, as you choose, if you have time. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 15:52, 3 Februarii 2015 (UTC)
Will do. We've had over 3 feet of snow in the past 7 days; the university closed for three of them, which is most unusual since it's primarily a residential campus. Everyone is now behind on everything! :-) A. Mahoney (disputatio) 16:35, 3 Februarii 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, but ...[fontem recensere]

Please look again at the Taberna. Tiny misunderstanding. I would never have dreamed of asking for automatic deletion! Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 15:48, 5 Martii 2015 (UTC)

good, then we're on the same page! I did mis-interpret the proposal. To say "this page was flagged on 5 March 2015" is probably doable, but would require crawling through the history; on the other hand, it is possible to make a list sorted by last modification date, which may be close enough for many purposes. A. Mahoney (disputatio) 16:35, 5 Martii 2015 (UTC)
That would be an even better way, because one could see immediately which pages have been untouched for longest.
Deletion is a painful task, one that UV and I (I think) perform most often. I wouldn't wish it on any bot! Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 16:55, 5 Martii 2015 (UTC)
CatScan can query e. g. a list of all pages which have been untouched for 2 months: [1] Greetings, --UV (disputatio) 21:49, 6 Martii 2015 (UTC)

Gratias M Mabelina (disputatio) 23:58, 21 Aprilis 2015 (UTC)

Mabelina -- As I said on the talk page, I'm not going to un-protect the page. I did correct the mis-spelling of "Ludovici Magni"; the capitalization is not a problem. There's no need to gloss the "Worshipful Company of Curriers" -- the right solution here would be to have a page about this society, and if you wanted to create it, that would be a service. It will require finding a source for the Latin name of the Company; there presumably is one, given that the Company dates to, what, the 13th century. I'd recommend that you label the page with the "tiro" formula, since you are still a relative beginner at Latin -- people will treat you more gently if you acknowledge this! (This is what I tell my own students -- for an example of their work see Iulius exclusus e coelis.)
We normally don't link dates, places, or publishers' names in bibliographies. The "Auctores Anglici" category is too broad and the page is better placed in the more specific category of "Interpretes Franco-Anglici." But you're right about the other category, and I've added it.
PS: yes, "Dr Mahoney" is formally correct, but we're not generally so formal here; "Anne" (latine "Anna, -ae") will suffice! A. Mahoney (disputatio) 13:06, 22 Aprilis 2015 (UTC)

Ave Anna. Gratias tibi ago pro notitia tua. M Mabelina (disputatio) 21:21, 23 Aprilis 2015 (UTC)

PS. please find additional info & links to the Gilda article on Latin Wikipedia; these I trust are of help. Perhaps building up the background history and outlining the present-day activities of Livery Companies & Zünfte could be better than starting individual articles about each such ancient corporation at this juncture - also, much obliged if you could advise how the Latin in the aforementioned (Dr. Donald Adamson JP) article should be further improved; hopefully a correctly phrased biographical article like this would be useful to all..? Best M Mabelina (disputatio) 02:31, 24 Aprilis 2015 (UTC)
Salve Dr Mahoney
As the subject of this article on Vicipaedia I am happy with its general content. However, I have written on subjects other than French thought and literature. Bearing in mind that a protection tag has been placed on it even though there has been no Edit whatsoever since last April, I suggest that this tag is no longer necessary. In any event I should be very grateful indeed if you could see your way to removing it.
Many thanks in advance.

Salve tu quoque, Dr. Adamson. Of course you're familiar with en:Wikipedia:Autobiography and the general rules against conflict of interest: even if the page does become unprotected, you wouldn't be editing it in the normal course of events. I protected it because Wikipedia tries to be cautious about biographies of living persons; the repeated edits in rather poor Latin, by your students I suppose, were nearly as damaging as vandalism (except, of course, for being well meant, innocent errors). If I were to unprotect it, you'd probably want to ask those of your students who aren't proficient in Latin to refrain from editing it: they are not doing you any favors. (I regularly assign Vicipaedia work to my own students, so I have a sense of what beginner-Latin is like, and I know what can be involved in cleaning up the mess afterwards.) A. Mahoney (disputatio) 20:06, 7 Martii 2016 (UTC)
Ave Dr. Mahoney
Thank you for your reply. I agree that students can be exuberant but also well-meaning. I am confident that no such further edits will be made and I confirm that I have no intention of making any myself. I trust that you can see your way to removing the unnecessary tag. Best wishes.

Sure: I'll do it when I'm in the office again, on Tuesday. It's quick, so I should have it done before 9:00 EDT. A. Mahoney (disputatio) 22:25, 17 Iulii 2015 (UTC)

I guess you're busy even beyond Vicipaedia, but if you have any ideas or comments relevant to Disputatio Vicipaediae:Spatium supplementorum -- positive or negative -- it would be very good to know. All the best Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 15:38, 25 Novembris 2015 (UTC)

De iubilaeo Vicipaedianorum

Annum 2016 prosperum et felicem omnibus amicis Vicipaedianis opto! Apud Tabernam consentivimus annum 2016 (quem iubilaeum nostrum Helveticus nuncupavit) praecipue dedicare ad textum paginarum Vicipaedicarum augendum et meliorandum. Huic proposito consentiens (si tu consentis!) sic pro communi inceptu nostro agere potes:

  • Quando paginas novas legibiles, fontibus munitas, et non brevissimas creare vis, crea! Ne timeas!
  • Quandocumque paginam aut breviorem aut mendosam aut male confectam reperis, cura! corrige! auge!
  • Si paginam novam brevissimam creare in mentem habes, recogita ... An potius textum longiorem scribere oportet? An prius aliam paginam, iam exstantem, augere potes?

Quo dicto, Vicipaediani liberi sumus. Paginae etiam breves, quae inter veras "stipulas" admitti possunt (vide formulam "Non stipula"), accepturae sunt sicut iam antea accipi solent. Scribe igitur sine metu, sicut iam scripsisti! [en] Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 18:35, 1 Ianuarii 2016 (UTC)

Happy New Year![fontem recensere]

Hi, Anne! Thanks for updating the 1000 table. There was talk (somewhere) about an update of the list of non-stipulas in date order that you originally created. Don't know if you have time ... Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 17:54, 14 Ianuarii 2016 (UTC)

I think that's pretty quick: I'll run it off before dashing to my meeting. Classes start the end of next week and I hope to get back to Vicipaedia once I'm in my office again. A. Mahoney (disputatio) 18:11, 14 Ianuarii 2016 (UTC)

No updating of the 10K list anymore?[fontem recensere]

They seem to be having a problem over there. Any chance you could help out, or persuade someone else to do so? See here. IacobusAmor (disputatio) 01:56, 2 Novembris 2018 (UTC)

Hmmm: that's unfortunate. I see that "Yerpo," one of the generally competent folks, is looking into this; Yerpo also maintains the 1K list, which is shorter and easier. I'm not in a position to take this on myself right at the moment -- as you can probably tell from the fact that I wasn't even aware that the table at Meta hasn't been updated since August. But it looks like other people may step in. And I will eventually get round to updating our own local tables. A. Mahoney (disputatio) 19:48, 2 Novembris 2018 (UTC)
I check every month, as I'm trying to strengthen our most important offerings. We've got all the articles on the 1,000-item list (or maybe we've recently been tricked out of one of them, as the list was changed), but several thousand articles are missing from the 10,000-item list. IacobusAmor (disputatio) 21:48, 2 Novembris 2018 (UTC)
We've been up to date on the 1,000 list for a long time, and we're actually doing OK relative to other Wikipedias on the 10K list -- though there is lots of room for improvement. A. Mahoney (disputatio) 14:30, 3 Novembris 2018 (UTC)
Yes (now that I've checked), we had all 1,000—and then we didn't, but now we do again because I added Nagarjuna. (Which one of ours should be taken off the list? Does that happen automatically in your program?) On the 10K list, we rank 51st, and we lack 3,637 articles—fewer after this weekend, when I plan to add several more.
