The translations should be in English, not Sorbian. You can add kócka as a synonym. --Vahagn Petrosyan 20:41, 29 April 2010 (UTC)

Please review the “Variations for languages other than English” part of our policy. Because this is English Wiktionary, we translate foreign words into English, like in kwětk or tyźeń; we do not define them in the foreign language. The Lower Sorbian definition of mačka can be given in Lower Sorbian Wiktionary. --Vahagn Petrosyan 21:56, 29 April 2010 (UTC)


I do not understand why "(land)" was added after the word. The word captain in English does not mean "land". --EncycloPetey 03:45, 30 April 2010 (UTC)

Where has the word land, been added after the word? Thanks for assistence. -- Bugoslav 11:14, 30 April 2010 (UTC)
Please look at the page. I have provided a link above. If you cannot see the word "land" on the definition line, then there is something wrong with your browser. --EncycloPetey 13:05, 30 April 2010 (UTC)


Are you a sockpuppet of Kubura? You sure do appear as one. --Ivan Štambuk 06:16, 30 April 2010 (UTC)

If you have any doubts, please refer them to the apropriate place (like a CU), and as for the question, I believe that Kubura doesn't have a Lower Sorbian dictionary, nor is interested in that particular language. Please stop writing on my talk page indefinitely and eternally. -- Bugoslav 11:24, 30 April 2010 (UTC)
You two have the similar patterns of editing (strange whitespace in the inflection) in similar topics (obscure Croatian army nomenclature: generalica, satnica - ?!).
Also do watch your tongue. I'm an admin here and my job is to make sure that the newbies abide by standard editing practice, and especially the ones contributing in the same areas as I am. I will closely monitor your edits and inform you of any infractions or malpractice committed. Your talkpage is not your personal property, but a communication platform to be used with other editors in productive discussions.
BTW, if you where sent here by the Croatian pedia clique to "prove" how "different" Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian/Montenegrin are, rest assured that any such attempts will undoubtedly be proven futile, because we already have 5 Serb-Croatian editors at various levels of proficiency (with two native speakers, me included), who are more than conversant with every imaginable sociolingistic aspects thereof. Your contributions are more than welcome in Croatian-only part of Serbo-Croatian lexis, which I presume would be the focus of your edits, but please evade unused neologisms and hypotheticals because we're strictly usage-based dictionary (which means that if a term cannot be verified as being actually used, it doesn't "exist"). --Ivan Štambuk 12:15, 30 April 2010 (UTC)
Please don't mark creating entries as a minor edit, apart from inflected forms like plurals. BTW "Please stop writing on my talk page indefinitely and eternally", I assume you're talking about other Wikimedia projects? Check out this page's history? Mglovesfun (talk) 21:23, 30 April 2010 (UTC)


Please, tell me your motivations, then. Do I miss something? --JorisvS 17:33, 8 June 2011 (UTC)

I'm not obliged to confess (2) anything to you. Are you my priest? Face-smile.svg -- Bugoslav 17:37, 8 June 2011 (UTC)
Then don't blame me for assuming the only motivation I can think of. --JorisvS 17:40, 8 June 2011 (UTC)
You do not have the right to assume the worst, but to assume good faith. -- Bugoslav 17:42, 8 June 2011 (UTC)
I'm not assuming the worst, I'm assuming the only thing I can think of. Can you provide me with another reason, then? --JorisvS 17:45, 8 June 2011 (UTC)
I'm not here to discuss my "reasons", and you should stop assuming bad faith. Please read the links that I have provided to you. Thanks. -- Bugoslav 17:47, 8 June 2011 (UTC)
Live with it. Alternatively you could change it by becoming more cooperative. --JorisvS 17:52, 8 June 2011 (UTC)
You could respect libertarianism more. -- Bugoslav 17:54, 8 June 2011 (UTC)
In which case you must similarly respect it when I revert youFace-wink.svg. --JorisvS 18:01, 8 June 2011 (UTC)

Re: Reverting[edit]

I do not need to respect the edit when you revert. Not if you deny valid policies like WT:CFI. -- Bugoslav 18:03, 8 June 2011 (UTC)

Referring to the "all languages" part? Serbian is not an independent language. It is a standardized variety of what is called Serbo-Croatian (by lack of a non-compound), just like Am.English and Br.English are standardized varieties of English. If you go to Croatia and talk "Serbian", they may notice but will understand you nonetheless. This means, by the definition of the English word "language" that your "Serbian" isn't a separate language from "Croatian". --JorisvS 18:13, 8 June 2011 (UTC)
A great example of my point below of Bugoslav's inability to make a convincing argument. Making links to WT:CFI without saying what the link is for, for example. If you don't want to explain your edits, fine, but don't be upset when someone reverts them. --Mglovesfun (talk) 11:01, 9 June 2011 (UTC)


While Bugoslav's ideas are against the current consensus, he's not particularly vulgar or insulting. I strong oppose that we block editors whose ideas are contrary to our own. It amounts to censorship. FWIW Bugoslav's biggest weakness, in my opinion, is the inability to make a coherent argument. I therefore request that this user be unblocked immediately. --Mglovesfun (talk) 10:58, 9 June 2011 (UTC)

I support this request for unblocking. --Dan Polansky 11:14, 9 June 2011 (UTC)

I was preparing a comment with which I intended to explain my support for unblock, when I saw this. If anyone cares I think he has changed his approach a bit, and perhaps will lessen his rhetoric in the future. See here for possible clue why opinionating thus. --Biblbroks дискашн 22:10, 10 June 2011 (UTC)

  • Discussing with him is a waste of time. He's not interested in arguments of his interlocutors (which he does understand, rest assured), but rather pursues the path of feigning willful ignorance, as if he's a poor uninformed soul in a desperate need of an explanation. Tactics may have changed, but he's the same old guy as before. I generally tolerate edits from brainwashed nationalists so long as they are reasonably productive ones (for example, the team-hr.wikipedia a few years ago decided to "prove" how Croatian is really a different language from Serbian, by creating many new Croatian-specific entries) - but this recent outburst of talkpage edits by Bugoslav is hardly such case: He merely realized that the Serbo-Croatian unification efforts that are going on occur on a pace much faster that they had thought, so he panicked and decided to voice his opposition to such movement. But too little, too late. --Ivan Štambuk 08:11, 11 June 2011 (UTC)

re: Man[edit]

What? I don't understand. 1st of all, what does "sincerely" in "sincerely yours" mean? Regards, --BiblbroX дискашн 20:41, 2 October 2011 (UTC)

I think you do understand, but have you understood? That is a completely different matter. Truly yours. -- Bugoslav 10:44, 3 October 2011 (UTC)
You think, but actually don't know. I think this is the case of not assuming good faith. Be kind and explain yourself. Another question: what does "kindly" in "kindly read this" mean? And again, your are finishing your comments with some idiomatic syntagmas of hardly comprehensible meaning. Please stop, you are confusing me. Regards, --BiblbroX дискашн 14:00, 3 October 2011 (UTC)
