Hi Sca,

I remember we had a brief conversation a while ago (still on my archived talk page) about Eastern Europe and Lithuania in particular. I don't know why I didn't take the time to read your user page properly back then but I've done so now and find we have many interests in common, like an appreciation for German culture and a fascination for Eastern Europe. I am from and live in Sweden but have been a lot in the east of Europe and the German cultural sphere, and keep returning to it in many ways, not least by writing reviews of Eastern/Central European literature in translation for a cultural magazine here whenever I get the opportunity (so to speak on the side, my professional life is as a civil servant). I read on your user page that you are a journalist by training and that you've written about the expulsion of Germans from east of the Oder and it made me curious. Would it at all be possible to get a digital copy of Revenge? You'd make a fellow Germanophile happy.

Hello! This is a note to let the editors of this article know that File:Mikalojus Konstantinas Ciurlionis - FAIRY TALE (FAIRY TALE OF KINGS) - 1909.jpg will be appearing as picture of the day on September 12, 2017. You can view and edit the POTD blurb at Template:POTD/2017-09-11. If this article needs any attention or maintenance, it would be preferable if that could be done before its appearance on the Main Page. — Chris Woodrich (talk) 13:59, 25 August 2017 (UTC)

Let's hope we don't get too many of these. Martinevans123 (talk) 16:12, 22 October 2017 (UTC)

Regarding the Billy Graham discussion

If you can justify that this was going to result in a positive change to the encyclopedia, feel free to undo the close and allow that discussion to reach it's natural conclusion. I don't see it, but maybe I missed it.--Jayron32 04:58, 22 February 2018 (UTC)

That Closing Bug

I fixed that issue with the closing template covering all nominations under the nomination regarding the former French President getting arrested. Kirliator (talk) 15:06, 20 March 2018 (UTC)

Thanks – I thought I fixed it. Looks like you fixed it before I 'fixed' it. Ha. Sca (talk) 15:43, 20 March 2018 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Featured picture candidates/Victoria Memorial situated in Kolkata

I have made some adjustments. Edit2 is the latest iteration and incorporates the feedback received till now. Please check and further advice. Subhrajyoti07 (talk) 18:02, 28 April 2018 (UTC)

I have uploaded a newer version of the original image and titled it Edit4. I think this has addressed the exposure issue to a better extent than the earlier efforts. Would be grateful if you can spare some time and review Subhrajyoti07 (talk) 13:34, 29 April 2018 (UTC)

Slight slope towards right has been corrected and uploaded as an updated image within the Edit4 image. Subhrajyoti07 (talk) 14:24, 29 April 2018 (UTC)

Is everything alright?

I thought we were having a bit of fun with spiders, but the message on my talk page that you promptly reverted with no comment leaves me wondering. I meant no offense, but I won't interact with you further if that's your wish. Isa (talk) 14:01, 3 May 2018 (UTC)

Large Gautama Buddha statue in Buddha Park of Ravangla, Sikkim

The concerns basis which you had opposed the candidature of the image has been addressed in the subsequent edits by me. Request you to review and share your latest views - Subhrajyoti07 (talk) 02:17, 8 June 2018 (UTC)

St. Martin, Idstein

We met on Errors. Do you think it's an error that we say Johann Sebastian Bach and not John Sebastian Creek because this is the English Wikipedia? - I'd like to show you around in Idstein. Ask Floquenbeam ;) --Gerda Arendt (talk) 17:49, 12 June 2018 (UTC)
Gerda, how about calling Bach Jack Creek on English WP? (OK, I'll shut up now.) Face-grin.svg Sca (talk) 14:30, 13 June 2018 (UTC)
I can highly recommend the tour. Idstein is charming. --Floquenbeam (talk) 21:34, 12 June 2018 (UTC)
Das wäre ein Genuß! (Did I say that right?)
Gerda, Floquenbeam: I hope you both realize my comments re St. Martin were based solely on editorial considerations, and that there was nothing personal about them. Honest people may differ but remain friends, nicht wahr? Sca (talk) 14:01, 13 June 2018 (UTC)
Sehr wahr! --Gerda Arendt (talk) 14:16, 13 June 2018 (UTC)

Your ITN/C reply

It seems you misunderstand me at ITN/C. At this edit I was replying to LaserLegs who claimed article is using "anonymous source". I actually edit conflicted with you, then I thought you'll understand because I don't want to interpolate my response between yours and his especially given you're also responding to him directly.. Thanks. –Ammarpad (talk) 18:35, 14 October 2018 (UTC)
