You have some. Let me know if you have received it because mine is being a little temperamental lately. Cheers, {{Sonia|talk|en}} 12:00, 27 June 2010 (UTC)

Thank you so much... I replied. :) Warmly, Belle tête-à-tête 02:58, 28 June 2010 (UTC)
I haven't received a reply (silly computer!) Could you please resend it? Cheers, {{Sonia|talk|en}} 05:53, 28 June 2010 (UTC)
Oops, sorry, I was writing a reply but I accidentally turned the screen off because we had to eat lunch. I assure you there's nothing wrong with your computer ;), just something wrong with my brain. Okay, I will send you a reply soon... As soon as I finish my study. :) Warmly, Belle tête-à-tête 05:56, 28 June 2010 (UTC)

Stub cup 2010Edit

Hi there Belinda! I've closed the stub cup and announced the winners. The winner is Either way, the second Sonia and the third PiRSquared17. I'd like to thank you for taking part in our stub cup! Keep up the good work! -Barras talk 09:35, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

Hey, thanks, Barras. :) I knew I wouldn't be able to even pass in third, but it was fun trying anyway. Please let me know if there are any other cups coming up - I would like to at least participate. Warmly, Belle tête-à-tête 05:27, 9 July 2010 (UTC)

Just stopping byEdit

I saw the message you placed on your page, and just thought I'd say that I hope all is well with you and that you can return to regular editing soon! Kansan (talk) 06:16, 9 July 2010 (UTC)

Aw, thanks, Kansan! You do have such a kind heart. :) And, yes, the problem is about almost over.... At least, I do hope so. I would rather not advertise it, and so I took the thing off. I would hate to soapbox. Well, thanks for the comforting message, Kansan, and (though I won't be especially active as before) I'll try to catch up with my editing and RL so they won't conflict. Once again, thank you for the message. Warmly and Sincerely, Belle tête-à-tête 08:49, 9 July 2010 (UTC)

Help needed!Edit

Hi there! I've a problem on metawiki. Someone tagged several pages there for deletion. He gives as reason that it is a wrong machine translation. If I remember correctly you understand the Korean language. Mind having a look at this? A comment there would be appreciated. I alredy asked Clementina, but she says you're better in Korean. The question is, if those tagged pages are machine translations or not. I hope you can help me. Thanks -Barras talk 08:48, 12 July 2010 (UTC)

Hi there to you too! :P I checked it out. It seems to be lots of strange policies and guidelines written confusingly, and I can smell a very slightly fishy smell in it - you know, the kind either a very smart admin did because he knows it perfectly well or the kind a vandal did to put secretly put in vandalism here and there, pretending to assume good faith and be sweet. All the stuff there that it is written that I have never seen before in any other wiki about wikipedia. There is one about Wikifaith, which I read over (I didn't have time to read all of them but I read about 4), but it seems a bit suspicious. And no, some of the grammar isn't all that perfect, but the article itself is readable. It seems to be pretty confusingly written, though, and almost a hoax of a policy itself. However I am afraid there isn't enough vandalism in it to be able to delete, at least not just yet. How about asking a few other admins in meta for a consensus to delete all of them or not? That way you could avoid being blamed for quick act and find a faster solution. But maybe that's just another of my stupid muses.... Well, thank you for seeking my help. I am more than glad to be of any use to anyone. Let me know if you need any other things for me to help you with! Your warm friend editor, Belle tête-à-tête 12:17, 12 July 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for the quick answer. I posted the case on this local board on meta, but most meta admins are as lazy as me and I don't think I will get much input there. I also asked because we currently have no Korean speaker in the meta admin team. Anyway, thanks a lot for your help! -Barras talk 12:21, 12 July 2010 (UTC)
Your welcome, once again it was my pleasure and let me know if I can do anything else to be of use! Belle tête-à-tête 12:22, 12 July 2010 (UTC)
Hi there, Barras and Belle. I could be of help because I understand Korean as well. ;) Just a heads up.-- Tdxiang 06:12, 15 July 2010 (UTC)
Aw, don't feel left out. :p Of course! Why didn't I think of you? You must be much better at Korean than me, for I speak fluently but I can't translate quite well. Oh, and by the way, Tdxiang, even though this doesn't really have anything to do with the conversation, you have new messages. Just to let you know... Belle tête-à-tête 06:16, 15 July 2010 (UTC)

GoblinBot3 (talk) 15:58, 13 July 2010 (UTC)


Oh hi Belle, just got your message today. It's okay, really, everything's fine as it seems. Will be speaking to you soon.-- Tdxiang 06:16, 15 July 2010 (UTC)

Thank you so much, dear Tdxiang. :) Hope I can get to you soon, as I am fond of talking to people like you. There are so rare editors as cheerful and warm as you are, though I won't count them out right now, and I always find it a great delight to speak to them. Belle tête-à-tête 06:18, 15 July 2010 (UTC)
Hi Belle, regarding the usage of subject particle, the more common subject particle for a language would be 를. It's like how you refer to English as 영어를, rather than 영어가. I know both 를 and 가 are used interchangeably, but in this context, 를 would be a better-sounding subject particle to 가. Neither is wrong, it only depends on the circumstances. It's like you seldom say 영화가 when referring to movies. Perhaps I'm looking at it from a conventional Seoul native's point of view even though I'm not one. It is of understanding that overseas Koreans, even in Singapore, have their own style of grammar depending on where they live, but as far as I know, it's accurate. Thanks for inquiring about that change anyway. I can safely confirm that 를 is indeed an appropriate subject particle to use.

Best, -- Tdxiang 16:09, 15 July 2010 (UTC)

Gob-RFDA commentEdit

FYI, I was only blocked for three days. Purplebackpack89 04:52, 23 July 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know, I'll keep it in mind next time I ever decide to write a comment concerning you. Cheerio, Belle tête-à-tête 05:36, 23 July 2010 (UTC)

Purplebackpack Challenge CupEdit

Are you game??? Purplebackpack89 15:57, 29 July 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, why don't you join! Yottie =talk= 20:39, 29 July 2010 (UTC)
Oh, what a lovely thing you have there! ;) But with smart Yots in the game, it seems much too challenging for me. Sorry, but I'm way too busy these days to join those things. My RL is usually pretty tough, you see, even though I spend most of my time at home. :p Hope lots others will join and have fun, anyway. Thanks for the kind offer! With lots of warmth, Belle tête-à-tête 05:50, 30 July 2010 (UTC)


  The Baking Barnstar
For making all of those articles about cakes and wonderful yummy things I award you this barnstar! I will find some time soon to help the WikiProject :) Yottie =talk= 21:41, 1 August 2010 (UTC)
Hey, thanks, Yots! Actually, I was starting to wonder if I should just quit the wikiproject and ask for an admin to delete the page. It was getting so inactive, after all. But your words and gift encouraged me a great deal! I'll keep it after all. :) And wow, I really don't deserve this one. I barely made a few articles! (Regarding they are all shameful stubs, too)--And they're not even well made with good refs. But thank you anyway, I'll treasure it forever! ;) Good to hear that at least one person cares about "wonderful yummy things". Cheers, Belle tête-à-tête 05:07, 2 August 2010 (UTC)
I'm sure we can make those shameful stubs in to GAs if we help each other out :) Yottie =talk= 07:55, 2 August 2010 (UTC)


... for the answer. Nataly8 (talk) 10:40, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

Indeed, you're very welcome. :) I'm sure I didn't do much, just explain a bit more specifically than Telecom. If you have any other questions, feel at liberty to ask me whenever you would like to. Good to see another new member around! Cheers, Belle tête-à-tête 10:41, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

Thanks. How you nominate the admins? Nataly8 (talk) 10:42, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

Go to Wikipedia:Requests for permissions, replace "USERNAME" by the name of the user in the text box below and press "Nominate for adminship". Then you should fill up the page with the required information and transclude it in the main page (Wikipedia:Requests for permissions) by adding {{Wikipedia:Requests for adminship/<Name of user>}}. Pmlineditor  10:46, 8 August 2010 (UTC)
Well, thanks PM for the answer (edit conflicts, ugh) and I have one too, even though PM probably solved your questions already. If you would like to nom a user named "User:Nataly8isgreat" (just for instance :P), then you could click WP:Requests for adminship/Nataly8isgreat, except put in the username you would like instead of that name. You have to make sure that the person you pick is right, though. You can check WP:RFA for all the rules to become an admin or nom a person worthy of adminship. I hope you got it now. If the pages don't solve the questions for you, ask me or any admins. :) Have a nice day, Belle tête-à-tête 10:46, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

Peer reviewEdit

I put 5 articles in peer review. Did you have any comments to do? How I can do the articles better? Nataly8 (talk) 12:15, 11 August 2010 (UTC)

Well, I'd be glad to help. :) I usually don't check around peer review, am more active in PGAs, so I had no idea that you had any articles put up there. :p Okay, then, I will leave comments soon if I can find time. Thank you for the ask, and please feel free to ask me any other thing if I can help. Cheers, Belle tête-à-tête 12:20, 11 August 2010 (UTC)

Yes, OK. The 4 of them are featured in English and the other one (the last of the list) is Good article. Good luck :) Nataly8 (talk) 12:22, 11 August 2010 (UTC)

Sure, I'll see to it soon... And I don't really think that there's anything like luck, but blessings to you. ;) Belle tête-à-tête 12:24, 11 August 2010 (UTC)

OK. I wish you like them :) Nataly8 (talk) 12:28, 11 August 2010 (UTC)

Discussion about WikiProject LiteratureEdit

Hello, Belle. I wanted to alert you to a post on the talk page of WikiProject Literature. It is a proposal which concerns all members of the project. Your opinion or suggestions would be most welcome. Cheers, PrincessofLlyr talk 18:18, 17 August 2010 (UTC)

Thank you, Princess, for the notification. I have left a comment on the talk page and will try to improve the Lightning Thief whenever I find time. With Warmth, Belle tête-à-tête 00:11, 18 August 2010 (UTC)

Have a bite!Edit

  Hazard-SJ has given you some cookies! Now enjoy them!

(For spreading the wikilove)!!! Hazard-SJ Talk 00:51, 20 August 2010 (UTC)

Mmm, thank you so much, Hazard! I was just starting to get hungry.... It was delicious, although I had a hard time eating it because I came home from the dentist ;). Thank you once again for the encouragement, although I don't deserve it in the least. Yours warmly, Belle tête-à-tête 03:39, 20 August 2010 (UTC)


I will create a new gift. Thanks for the roses. :) Nataly8 (talk) 04:38, 20 August 2010 (UTC)

  Somebody has baked you some cake! Enjoy the taste!

That's my new gift. Enjoy! Nataly8 (talk) 05:35, 20 August 2010 (UTC)

Oh, what a sweet gift! But I didn't know cakes have scents, :p I think it would be better sentenced as Enjoy the taste.--But, yeah, it's your gift, you can keep it as you like. :) Thank you for the gift anyway. Cheerio, Belle tête-à-tête 05:41, 20 August 2010 (UTC)

Fixed :) Nataly8 (talk) 05:42, 20 August 2010 (UTC)

Simple talkEdit

What happened? Nataly8 (talk) 07:27, 24 August 2010 (UTC)

Oh, I just asked a stupid question and reverted it. See history if you're really curious... Belle tête-à-tête 12:00, 24 August 2010 (UTC)

Hey, I put myself in editor review. Nataly8 (talk) 12:27, 4 September 2010 (UTC)

What a tactful hint ;). Okay, I'll review you. Belle tête-à-tête 12:28, 4 September 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the comments. Nataly8 (talk) 12:40, 4 September 2010 (UTC)


Thanks for the barnstar. I just go from element to element, expanding each element page and its compounds. Now I am on sulfur and sulfur compounds. --Chemicalinterest (talk) 13:13, 15 September 2010 (UTC)

Sure, you're quite welcome. Chemistry certainly seems so confusing and boring to me, it's one of my least favorite subjects. I'm amazed how you can be so intelligent in these things. I sincerely think you deserved that barnstar. :) Jovially, Belle tête-à-tête 00:03, 16 September 2010 (UTC)


Regarding this, there was actually a consensus to change it to "Related websites" and "Related pages". :) Hope this helps, —Clementina talk 09:06, 16 September 2010 (UTC)

Thank you for letting me know. :) I'll certainly remember that part of information. With kindness, Belle tête-à-tête 09:09, 16 September 2010 (UTC)


Don't give up on Pug, you can fix it for DYK. The context is the Eighty Years War, a struggle for independence of the Netherlands against Spain. The spaniards mentioned in the ref are not idle murderers, they are Spanish troops! William Prince of Orange was leading the rebellion at the time. That may help you find a wording which fits the reference. "... warned him of the approaching Spanish soldiers" or some such. Macdonald-ross (talk) 17:24, 21 September 2010 (UTC)

Oh, thank you. :) That's some very helpful information you have there, dear Macdonald-ross. I'll certainly see if I can change it. Very warmly, Belle tête-à-tête 01:49, 23 September 2010 (UTC)
