Hi Neoneo13! Welcome to Wikipedia :)

I've noticed your many edits to the topics related to Croatian culture. Are you from Croatia perhaps, or do you speak Croatian? You may be interested in the Croatian Wikipedia.

If you need any help, please don't hesitate to ask. Good luck. --Joy [shallot] 23:06, 11 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Well, yes - I am Croatian, but I'm not living there. I'm currently working on different entries in the German Wikipedia (along with the English Wikipedia). Maybe I'll join the Croatian Wikipedia as well, but there's still so much to do and I thought it would be better to continue with the more widely used versions first...  :) --Neoneo13 11:43, 12 Feb 2005 (UTC)

flag and coat of Croatia

Please see Talk:Croatia#flag and coat. --Joy [shallot] 18:57, 2 October 2005 (UTC)

Thanks a lot for the hints. Work is done! I'll continue working in PNG format. Hope it's fine now - if not, please change it. --Neoneo13 22:41, 2 October 2005 (UTC)


Hello Neoneo13! I noticed at Karlovac that you had added "Carlstatt" as an older German name. I'm not familiar with that term; could you have meant Carlstadt, or was Carlstatt a name possibly used centuries ago? Happy editing! Olessi 23:18, 28 December 2005 (UTC)

  • Hi! Well found it yesterday in a book stating "Carlstatt" above an image of ancient Karlovac. Its a very old name and Croatian cities often have hundreds of names throughout history. Carlstadt is surely one of these possibilities. Must be a tough German who wrote down "Carlstatt" (very hard pronunciation). Thought it might be useful to add if historians are searching for this old name. --Neoneo13 12:51, 29 December 2005 (UTC)
Thanks for the info! Because "Carlstatt" does not seem to be a common name in use by scholarly material, I have moved its mention to within the body of the article and replaced it with the more common Carlstadt in the introduction. I also created a redirect for Carlstatt to Karlovac. Olessi 19:51, 29 December 2005 (UTC)

Marija Bistrica

The Coat of arms in the Marija Bistrica article isn't the same as in the croatian wikipedia . Which one is correct? Nice to see there are more Croatian Catholics here in wikipedia. Sporki 22:13, 14 March 2006 (UTC)

I guess then the croatian is rather correct. those her are older ones... --Neoneo13 22:47, 14 March 2006 (UTC)

Pronunciation of Dubrovnik

Hi, thanks for your contributions to Dubrovnik. I was wondering why you added the phrase "stress on first syllable", when that is already indicated both in the fully-accented Croatian orthography and in the standard IPA transcription. You'll note for example that the Italian city Erice has the accent indicated using IPA and nothing else. --Macrakis 01:46, 22 March 2006 (UTC)

Yeah, but still I thought it might be necessary, since not everybody can really correctly read the IPA script. Heard so many wrong pronunciations on british radio and TV (du-BROV-nik) that it might be at hand. Well, we need to decide, whether it's really necessary... --Neoneo13 10:37, 22 March 2006 (UTC)
WP standard is to use IPA for pronunciation. As for the British radio/TV pronunciation, I don't think there's much to be done.... --Macrakis 02:32, 23 March 2006 (UTC)


Thank you for your support of the Article Improvement Drive.
This week Denmark was selected to be improved to featured article status.

hungary map

Okay, Image:Kingdom of Hungary counties.svg is supposed to be the replacement map, does everything look okay? I will have to look at the others on Commons and see what needs updating, I didn't make the rest. --iMb~Meow 18:47, 30 April 2006 (UTC)

Just an update, both the PNG files you noted are revised, I found the rest on Commons and will sart to whack away at them. --iMb~Meow 20:32, 30 April 2006 (UTC)
Wow, I like this look :)! Thanks for changing Krbava. Just have a look at the following counties: should be "Belovár-Kőrös" and "Verőce" (long "ő" with two lines) Can't really see it very good on the map, but just have a look if it's ok on your version. Guess You could also be a competent person to enhance and enlarge the Croatian county maps (Commons:Category:Maps of Croatia)... But don't want to put a too heavy burden on you. I greatly appreciate Your work. THANKS A LOT! :)) --Neoneo13 15:31, 1 May 2006 (UTC)
Okay, will do :) This has been an ongoing source of amusement; the old maps I used as sources seem to be full of weird spellings, all different! I'll sift through wikipedia and try to get everything consistent with the usage here!
Sure, I'll give Croatia a look too. --iMb~Meow 15:57, 1 May 2006 (UTC)
Thanks! :) --Neoneo13 16:06, 1 May 2006 (UTC)

IPA help

Hi, I see you seem to be familiar with the IPA. Could you perhaps incorporate an IPA pronounciation into the article on Jusuf Prazina? I'm currently working on it and it'd be much appreciated. Live Forever 05:41, 13 May 2006 (UTC)


(also on your commons page) Your Dubrovnik Image is up for a featured pic, however there seems to be some JPEG artifacts. Can you upload a larger version, preferably with less compression? -Ravedave 22:04, 5 June 2006 (UTC)

In fact, could you please explain why this image should be in the "public domain"? See Wikipedia:Featured picture candidates/Dubrovnik... Lupo 11:07, 6 June 2006 (UTC)
Sorry, haven't got any better version. --Neoneo13 18:21, 6 June 2006 (UTC)
Did you take the photo yourself? It appears to be the same as this [2]. chowells 22:13, 6 June 2006 (UTC)
No, it is a scan of a photo from a tourist leaflet published for the public domain. --Neoneo13 22:26, 6 June 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for uploading Image:Stjepan Radic founder of the Croatian Farmers' Party in the beginning of the 20 century.jpg. I notice the 'image' page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you have not created this media yourself then there needs to be an argument why we have the right to use the media on Wikipedia (see copyright tagging below). If you have not created the media yourself then it needs to be specified where it was found, i.e., in most cases link to the website where it was taken from, and the terms of use for content from that page.

If the media also doesn't have a copyright tag then one should be added. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL.
