Salve, Grufo!

Gratus aut grata in Vicipaediam Latinam acciperis! Ob contributa tua gratias agimus speramusque te delectari posse et manere velle.

Cum Vicipaedia nostra parva humilisque sit, paucae et exiguae sunt paginae auxilii, a quibus hortamur te ut incipias:

Si plura de moribus et institutis Vicipaedianis scire vis, tibi suademus, roges in nostra Taberna, vel roges unum ex magistratibus directe.

In paginis encyclopaedicis mos noster non est nomen dare, sed in paginis disputationis memento editis tuis nomen subscribere, litteris impressis --~~~~, quibus insertis nomen tuum et dies apparebit. Quamquam vero in paginis ipsis nisi lingua Latina uti non licet, in paginis disputationum qualibet lingua scribi solet. Quodsi quid interrogare velis, vel Taberna vel pagina disputationis mea tibi patebit. Ave! Spero te "Vicipaedianum" aut "Vicipaedianam" fieri velle!

De terminologiaRecensere

I should explain why sometimes -- as I said at Disputatio:Pasta vermiculata -- I want to limit my participation in terminology discussions. The topic interests me (it even obsesses me) but in some cases, in the context of modern Latin and in the context of Vicipaedia, it is bound to be inconclusive. You have found, I personally think, what appears to be a better-supported choice currently for spaghetti -- I would support a move -- but none of the sources yet cited is a "good secondary source" in English Wikipedia terms. Suppose next year we find a 17th/18th century Latin book by someone who knew Italian food and listed the forms of pasta? Perfectly possible, it is happening often: it would be a better source than all of ours, and the discussion starts again ... Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 09:04, 6 Aprilis 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I understand perfectly, Andrew! Let's see if something with an authority strong enough will come out in the future :-) --Grufo (disputatio) 09:54, 6 Aprilis 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I moved the discussion about vitaminum to that disputatio page. I hope that's OK. I'm really not involved, but would be happy with a consensus. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 13:46, 12 Aprilis 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
You did the right thing! When I will have a bit of time I will try to import en:Template:Moved discussion to and en:Template:Moved discussion from to Vicipaedia. --Grufo (disputatio) 14:21, 12 Aprilis 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I reverted your page move of Oxygenium: it needs discussion, as you realise. I hope I conserved your new citation: it looks interesting but from the quoted text it sounds speculative rather than decisive: I haven't time to read more tonight. Notice the citation that we already give in the first note: it has been useful in many cases.

If you want to move a category, you should either edit the dependent pages and subcategories yourself, or ask at the page Vicipaedia:Automata/Petitiones de categoriis movendis for this work to be done by UVbot. If you don't do this, those pages and subcategories get left behind. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 19:24, 13 Aprilis 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
