Salve, Secunde Zephyre!

Gratus 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" fieri velle!

De qua plus discas, pete. Tempore fruere tuo apud nos!--Ioshus (disp) 04:21, 30 Ianuarii 2007 (UTC)

de imaginibusRecensere

  Gratias agimus quod imagines imposuisti. Quaesumus ut imagines non in Vicipaediam Latinam impones, sed in Vicimediam Communiam, quibus impositae, omnes imagines ab omnibus inceptis Vicimediorum adhiberi possunt, fere 9 incepta in linguis 250! Si solum apud nos impones, nos soli imaginibus utamur. Quomodo impones discas apud Communia hic (Anglice). Vide etiam Vicipaedia:Imago et Vicipaedia:Imagines imponere. Iterum gratias ob tuam contributionem, et tempore apud Vicipaediam Latinam fruere!

  Thank you for uploading images. Please upload images not to the Latin Wikipedia, but to Commons. Images uploaded there can be used by all Wikimedia projects - some 9 projects in 250 different languages! - just as if they were uploaded locally, but if you only upload here, only we can use them. Instructions for uploading into commons can be found here. See Vicipaedia:Imago and Vicipaedia:Imagines imponere, also. Thank you for contributing, and have fun on the Latin Vicipaedia!

(You can ask for further assistance at Commons:Village pump or in the Taberna.)

Please see Vicipaedia:Movere. --Rolandus 06:58, 12 Februarii 2007 (UTC)

Don't worry. For the reader it makes no difference. But "movere" has advantages: It keeps the page history and it is more comfortable than moving manually. It even moves the talk page automatically. However, it does not work, if the target is an existing page. Then the target has to be deleted first. --Rolandus 20:35, 12 Februarii 2007 (UTC)


Please, if possible, avoid to use {{latinitas|reddenda}} because it is not clear what is meant: Litterally it means "non latine", however, in 99 out of 100 cases it is used like "maxcorrigenda" (or a better level). Please use a level from {{latinitas|-7}} to {{latinitas|+5}} or levels from {{latinitas|non latine}} to {{latinitas|optima}}. Pages in Categoria:Latinitas -7 (reddenda) need a re-rating ... mostly. --Rolandus 21:37, 12 Martii 2007 (UTC)

Spielberg nomen gentile originis (Iudaeo-)Germanicae est.

You don't happen to have Aliciae per speculum transitus do you? If so, could we direct your attention to Portmanteau...?--Ioshus (disp) 03:40, 22 Maii 2007 (UTC)

de figura paginae primaeRecensere

Salve Zephyre. A few of us were discussing the layout and content of our pagina prima, and some expressed desire to rehaul it. This might include color changes, content changes, layout changes, and who knows what else. Could you join the discussion at Disputatio:Pagina prima/Nova? Give us a list of things you want a main page to have, what you dont want a main page to have, and what specifically you might think to do differently with ours. We will then try to come up with a design that meets as many of these requests as possible, based on content from everyone. Thanks, and regards.--Ioshus (disp) 20:34, 3 Iunii 2007 (UTC)


No sweat. There are some dictionaries like whittaker's words online that got it wrong too.--Rafaelgarcia 05:40, 8 Iunii 2007 (UTC)

File:Tabula geographica civitatum CC. FF parva.pngRecensere

Hello. I was wondering why File:Tabula geographica civitatum CC. FF parva.png was deleted. Secundus Zephyrus (talk) 02:23, 22 May 2009 (UTC)

That is because it is a duplicate (reducted) of File:Tabula geographica civitatum CC. FF.png. The policy is to keep the largest map, the 959×593 has been suppressed, because the 1,280 × 792 pixels, is preferred. The supression was asked for by "19:21, 19 May 2009 commons:user:Common Good". If you need the file to be (temporarily?) restored, that can be done. Vale in pace. Micheletb 06:19, 22 Maii 2009 (UTC)
Formula:Done I added a warning word, feel free to edit it. Vale. Micheletb 07:00, 22 Maii 2009 (UTC)

Formulas in taxoboxes etc.Recensere

Thank you for working on formulas in taxoboxes, etc.! Note that formulas like "Subordo" and "Superfamilia" are also not working; a couple of weeks ago, I put some notes on such things in Taberna. ¶ The next thing one wonders is if we can't have more particular signs for stipulas than "zoologia-stipula." En: breaks that down into stipulas for classes (fishes, birds, etc.), and even stipulas for certain orders, such as en:Perciformes. If we did that for Vicipaedia, the current

  Haec stipula ad zoologiam spectat. Amplifica, si potes!

, showing a ladybug, would be perfect for the Coleoptera, of which 350,000 species have been described, and an estimated 5,000,000 to 7,500,000 more remain to be described. That's a lot of stipulas for just one order of classis insectorum! IacobusAmor 18:25, 15 Decembris 2009 (UTC)

You're welcome! I will see what I can do after I finish the fossil range template. It was working just fine, but when I tried to change the links to Latin, the whole thing crashed. But I'm on winter break now, and have all the free time in the world ;) --SECUNDUS ZEPHYRUS 18:36, 15 Decembris 2009 (UTC)
Oops. After thanking you elsewhere, I find that something is wrong with "Formula:Taxobox/species." You'll see that notice printed out at the top of Exyrias akihito and other articles that use the taxobox. IacobusAmor 14:14, 16 Decembris 2009 (UTC)


Should'nt Bambi II, The Aristocats, and Oliver & Company be in this category? There're all protected from editing. And does anyone here know enough Spanish to translate the hiden content on some of these pages? Like Bambi, The Lion King, and The Fox and the Hound. 22:28, 15 Decembris 2009 (UTC)

OK, now I feel dumb, Categoria:Pelliculae musicales. Sorry for the errors on my part. 22:33, 15 Decembris 2009 (UTC)
They are still protected. Are Latin and English your only fluent languages? 22:37, 15 Decembris 2009 (UTC)
Not unprotection, just categories. I don't really need unprotection. Vandalism will come back! And I see you aren't uperuser per the userlog. 22:42, 15 Decembris 2009 (UTC)
What does Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs mean in Latin? I know that Ice Age is Aetas Crystalli and Meltdown is Liquefactio but what is Dawn of the Dinosaurs? Thank you! 22:47, 15 Decembris 2009 (UTC)
I want to know too: Charlotte's Web translates as Tela Charlottae while Charlotte's Web (pellicula 2006) translates as Aranea Carolinae. So what should Charlotte's Web (pellicula 1973) be? And how would you say Charlotte's Web 2: Wilbur's Great Adventure? 23:02, 15 Decembris 2009 (UTC)
Charlotte's Web 2:


The film opens up in springtime, about a year after Charlotte has passed on. Charlotte's three daughters, Joy, Aranea and Nellie, are now in the stages of adolescence, with Wilbur serving as a companion and mentor.

During this time, Wilbur befriends Cardigan, a newborn lamb that is looked down upon by the other lambs and the younger sheep of his flock because he has black wool. Wilbur takes Cardigan under his wing and shows him the farm, the ways of animal life, and dangers to look out for.

However, after only a few weeks, Zuckerman suddenly sells Cardigan to another farmer, so Wilbur, along with Charlotte's daughters and Templeton the Rat, set out to visit Cardigan and make sure he's okay.

Thank youRecensere

for the lovely message! I'm very happy to hear my little contributions are appreciated.

I've heard of "1000 pages." To be honest, I prefer working on the things that interest me most, to make Latin as fun as possible. Since I'm self-teaching, it's too easy to lose interest and simply stop doing it, y'know? But, I'll definitely take a look and hopefully draft something this evening, just because you took the time to tell me about it :)

Pointing out that I have typos isn't being mean! In fact, I greatly appreciate it - but, with the current quality of my Latin, I can't find them. Gimme a hint? Mattie 04:18, 29 Iunii 2010 (UTC)

Ah, thanks, I made the changes. Quandod is an archaic form of quando (as a purist, in my mind, older is always better). But I changed it anyway. Mattie 01:35, 2 Iulii 2010 (UTC)

Scriptor cinematographicusRecensere

Salve Secundus Zephyrus, I've tried to read your article about scriptio cinematographica (my Latin is poor) and I'm wondering, how you will express/translate the difference between a screenwriter and a film critic (or a film historian/historicus). Someone who is writing for and someone who is writing about cinema. --Light Yagami 05:32, 13 Iulii 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for your answer! --Light Yagami 23:56, 18 Iulii 2011 (UTC)

illae mille paginaeRecensere

Salve, Secunde Zephyre! When you get a chance, could you update your useful 1000-pages size list? It's been 6 months, which seems like a reasonable interval between updates; the list has changed and we've made some progress -- so we can congratulate ourselves, and figure out what are the next pages to work on. No hurry, though, since I think only a handful of us are obsessing about the 1000-page score these days! A. Mahoney 22:48, 29 Octobris 2011 (UTC)

Thank you: this is useful. And congratulations on graduating! I'm working on a similar list myself, primarily as an exercise in how to write a bot (since a read-only bot is quite safe to experiment with), but yours is the True Original Page Size Tool, deserving of all fame and glory. Now to work on some more articles! A. Mahoney 18:58, 6 Novembris 2011 (UTC)
