Crazy changes by Gilgamesh


Unfortunately, User:Gilgamesh is now imposing his own views by changing the transliterated Hebrew names of articles with redirects to unreadable Hebrew names and fonts, as if his criteria are the only ones to reckon with, when there are in fact several. My computer, as I am sure many others' as well, does not pick up his type of fonts, and thus he is messing up articles such as Safed, Hadera, Holon, Afula, Arad, Israel and many others defacing them and making them unreadable on the web. He is going to DESTROY the normal usage of Wikipedia's Hebrew transliterations to satisfy his own needs without there being any consensus. Common usages are being thrown out in favor of obscure and pedantic academic usages familiar to only a handful of unkown academics. He should be called upon to stop BEFORE he rushes to do further damage without any consensus being reached. All his changes should therefore be reverted. See all his recent contributions via: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Contributions/Gilgamesh I thank you for your interest, and urge all readers here to act.

Hebrew naming conventions


At the present time there is a serious discussion taking place, aiming at some consensus that will result in "official" Wikipedia guidelines about how Hebrew should be used and written in Wikipedia articles. Because of your past or ongoing interest in these type of articles with Hebrew words in them, your attention is called to Wikipedia:Naming conventions (Hebrew) [1] TO MAKE YOUR VIEWS KNOWN AND TO ADD TO THE DISCUSSION BEFORE THE "DOORS ARE SHUT" PLEASE SEE THE RELATED DISCUSSION PAGE AT Wikipedia talk:Naming conventions (Hebrew) [2] Thank you!

Your contact info


Hi Avihu: Hope all is well. You have not enabled your Wikipedia Email feature in your "tool box" on the left hand side of your user page. Sometimes editors overlook that when it's a useful way of staying in touch with other editors. Best wishes. Shabbat Shalom. IZAK 12:51, 23 November 2006 (UTC)[reply]

Hi IZAK, thank you for reminding me about the e-mail account, but I have my reservations about users sending me e-mail from wikipedia and for the time being I will not activate it Avihu 12:41, 24 November 2006 (UTC)[reply]



Hi Avihu: Could you please Email me via my user page at Email User:IZAK. Thank you so much. IZAK 08:53, 25 April 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Hi IZAK, Sorry to disappoint you, but in your previous e-mails you asked me to intervene with various edit wars. I am here for fun and edit wars are far from it. Regards, Avihu 17:29, 25 April 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Forbidden City walls


I've posted on Talk:Forbidden City. --PalaceGuard008 (Talk) 06:58, 22 December 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Thanks, I will fix it also in my native Wikipedia. Avihu (talk) 18:15, 22 December 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Thanks for all the great comments! There are definitely several Mongol-related articles that need another pair of eyes! If you'd like to help, see the list at Talk:Franco-Mongol alliance#List of articles for review. Any help would be appreciated! --Elonka 17:39, 25 September 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Hello Elonka,
Thanks for the invitation, but all my spare time goes to the Hebrew Wikipedia which has a lot less editors. The reason I wrote about possible errors in Mongol raids into Palestine was because I was doing the Hebrew translation as part of the m:Translation of the week project, which mean that I read the article thoroughly. I have no further knowledge about Mongol-related subjects. I do have knowledge about the city of Acre (I lived there for 15 years) and if I would have the time I would have worked on the poor (and sometimes biased) article about it. Regards, Avihu (talk) 18:18, 25 September 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Thanks, I will try my colleagues at the Hebrew Graphic Lab. Regards, Avihu (talk) 17:07, 1 February 2010 (UTC)[reply]

Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference


Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and you will still be able to manually mark your edits as being minor in the usual way.

For established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. With the script in place, you can continue with this functionality indefinitely (its use is governed by WP:MINOR). If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 19:25, 15 March 2011 (UTC)[reply]
