Victor Felea is on Wikipedia (en) (ro) Finally!

A barrier on cultural and evolutionary development is being lowered, soon it will not be necessary to enter umpteen addresses on Wiki for the ordinary computer user to find the article they want or they wish to see.

Not all of us can fathom the depths of complexity that simplicity has. To date a simple Wiki search does not reveal both or all results of what ever one is searching for, not all of us are aware that other options are available to find our chosen topic. Basically, the ordinary computer user will either Google or Wiki and accept what is shown, thinking and believing that what they are looking for does not exist yet.

At present as this example shows... this is necessary to find just one person!

But is he elsewhere as well? Who knows! Any ideas without wasting time looking for addresses that don't exist? Are we all expert searchers of this silcon chip controlled library? I firmly believe not.

Soon hopefully this will show collectively, whichever Wiki Search engine is used by who-ever is looking.

Wikipedia Slammed Again! - Progress!

↑ Grab this Headline Animator

Progress is / has been made in a very concrete way. Once nameless editors of Wikipedia had vanished that is, they are very quick to shoot contributors down, but very slow to help, hiding in anonymity. A weak point that needs addressing Wiki, can we see only editors who don't hide in the shadows please Wiki.

Other Points noticed and tested out are...

01: Translators who can not recognise a language or the difference between Bio and Autobio.
Your own language recognition helper is readily available, can we see better awareness for such persons in the coming days please.

02: Your minefield of rules and regulations is a clear 'Arrrgggghhh' to contributors, editors can help here more in many ways if made aware of the common pitfalls, quite a few contributors are unaware of the various National sections available. A language recognition as in MS Word would help such contributors immensely.

03: Though the excellent efforts by Wikipedia to integrate other nations into the Wiki Empire is laudable, it is still a need for detailed effort, allow me to enlarge. The article on Victor Felea is easily found in the English version, but search of the same name does not reveal a Romanian version. Bearing in mind that this very Global Village has nationals of umpteen nations living abroad now-a-days. a cross version search would be very beneficial. As I sit here at my desk and search the English version and My Fiancée sits at her desk and searches the Romanian section, we both fail to find the same results.

04: This is very discouraging to say the least for those who have spent their lives behind oppression and control of Foreign powers or dictatorships as their segregation still feels to them to be continuing. A barrier you can easily lower Wiki.

05: Better awareness training for your Editors is a must Wiki, Translate or else be deleted is not an option that many can use, English as a Mother tongue or Second language is not Global yet, offering an option as and when a native translator at the very least is available would ensure more 'Wonderful' contributions will be added. Cross version entries should be encouraged not blown away and lost forever, this segregation and censorship has got to STOP Wiki.

06:  This Dictatorial attitude is what they are trying to escape, it has killed thousands and enforcing such a rule is ensuring they do not feel at all welcome in western society! Accept both versions on Wikipedia - it will do no harm and will rather than blatantly kill cultural growth, do the opposite, blatantly encourage it! Innocent victims have suffered enough already.

07: Victor Felea is not in any shape or form an unknown writer, with at least 15 published books to his name and many unpublished, due to censorship. Just because he was unknown due to the Iron Curtain is no reason to 'slur' him or any other who fought in words to create a better world, trusting that those who finally lived in a free society would carry on the works they started!

08: What has society in general lost, never to be seen again due to the weakness you have been enforcing? A few made it Western Society to spread their word, many didn't, please stop adding to the list of 'Many who didn't'

Thankyou to all at Wiki who have not hidden themselves especially Dr AJ Schwab & Joe Mabel.

I make no apologies for 'Slamming' Wiki, finding and stressing weak points was a must for the work of Wiki to continue. Their work is a must for the entire Global Village and deserves a slap now and again to keep it on its toes.

Ps Dr AJ Schwabs comment on languages used has been a typo error on his part on yesterdays blog comment - the offending figure should read '255' not '225' as stated.

Wikipedia Slammed Again!

↑ Grab this Headline Animator

Wikipedia has well and truly got my back up now, like a dog with a bone, I refuse to let go till it has fossilised at the very least! Thousands have died to rid Nations from such Dictator like behaviour.

Read the latest before seeing my Stressed points I have made, correctly implemented they can only improve 'Everybody's Lives'

The following are 'Captures' are direct from Wikipedia, reference links are as shown on the next but one article below this one. (Wikipedia Slammed)

====[[Victor Felea]]====

Victor Felea

The language of this article is unknown. Fbdave (talk) 22:25, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

  • Romanian. Autobio of a non-notable author promoting his books and website. Cbdorsett (talk) 04:40, 28 March 2008 (UTC)

Needtrans | pg = Victor Felea | Language = Romanian | Comments = Fbdave is very ignorant, Language is Romanian, a very notable Romanian writer now deceased, anniversary closely followed here by TV and Radio. The Romanian Writers Union is also involved and it is not self-promotion! A deceased professional writer cannot promote himself as joker Cbdorsett says. It is not an Autobiography either. Your attitude Wiki for promoting racism noted and you cannot blatantly do such, under International law, you are obliged to accept both languages placing him in his rightful Romanian version and the English section as well. Well known enough to be having a 'Plaque' placed above the family home by the Romanian authorities shortly, can this non-descript joker Fbdave or this joker Cbdorsett say the same? I think not, their ignorance will not earn them one!

Refusal to accept the Romanian version was very strong from the beginning, (see blog entry 'Wikipedia Slammed!' below) a detail that is enforced by you on all other languages as well. Shame on you and your so called team of translators ‘Cbdorsett’ does some for you – but can not it seems tell the difference between Biography and Autobiography – This certainly feeds strong doubts as to this ‘Joker’s’ capabilities!

March 2008

Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, we would like to remind you not to attack other editors, as you did on Wikipedia:Pages needing translation into English. Please comment on the contributions and not the contributors. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you. --Metropolitan90 (talk) 07:53, 28 March 2008 (UTC)

I will continue to attack ignorance that attacks the truth!

Exactly who the hell are you Metroplolitan90 hiding and backing up blatant racist behaviour, every fact I put is solid truth, those two jokers are totally ignorant, you call them editors 'What a big big joke' The first was unable to recognise the language and the second was convinced that autobiography was an act a deceased person could do from the grave 'plugging' his website yet the second joker (A translator) is unable to see a birth date and death date in the same paragraph! You like them are totally crackers, stop throwing your naive weight around little boys!

Let me make a few points my little pocket dictators.

01:  Deceased persons cannot write or plug their own works.

02:  Translators know the difference between Autobiography and Biography.

03;  While you were tucked up safely in your little bed with your nappy on these people had nights of terror from the beginning of the dictatorship then Russian Occupation and are still getting over it today!

04:  Your Communist attitude that they have to only communicate on Wiki in English is totally unacceptable (write it in English or be deleted or maybe locked away in your own language so no one outside in the real world can read it). Segregation is not right, it is racist!

05:  This Dictatorial attitude is what they are trying to escape, it has killed thousands and enforcing such a rule is ensuring they do not feel at all welcome in western society!

06:  Wind your neck in and accept both versions on Wikipedia - it will do no harm and will rather than blatantly kill cultural growth, do the opposite, blatantly encourage it!

07:  This dictatorial racism affects every single country that has either been behind the Iron Curtain or is struggling to recover from a dictatorship previously controlling their lives.

08:  No one can grow from anothers experience if they are controlled and oppressed in any shape or form - Your blatant dictatorship has got to stop! Protecting fools to further your stupidity helps no one at all, least of all the innocent victims who have suffered enough already!

09: They Romanians as well as other nations are still reeling in a national  'Past-Traumatic-Shock' stop thinking of your ego for a change, instead think of others first - trust me it is far more rewarding.

10: Victor Felea is not in any shape or form an unknown writer, with at least 15 published books to his name and many unpublished. Just because he was unknown due to the Iron Curtain is no reason to 'slur' him or any other who fought in words to create a better world, trusting that those who finally lived in a free society would carry on the works they started!

Speedy Delete this Wiki!

My first entry was 'Speedy Deleted' as Wiki stated it was a 'Blatant breach of copyright' Tough on you Wiki - my own words translated into Romanian by my Fiancee, Cristina Felea, Daughter of Victor Felea and posted on the Tribute Website set up for him. Shame on you Wiki!

Next, I replaced it with the current entry on Wiki and got this back from the joker who destroys countless entries regularly (see link)

So I obliged, to a certain extent anyway, and posted this on the website in response... after changing my language and re-entering exactly the same article again! Guess what - yes it has been accepted this time, no the refused entry is not in English as instructed and stressed by the Joker who issued the edict to conform or else instructions. Yes the English version will follow in due course, when I'm ready!

For those who are interested, The Memorial meeting held today on the 15th Anniversary of the Death of Victor Felea - Was well attended by; Family, friends, colleagues and associates at the Writers Union Offices here in Cluj-Napoca. Thankyou / Mulţumesc to all who attended in thought word or deed on this historic day.

Alexandru Vlad's Tribute to Victor Felea

↑ Grab this Headline Animator

       N-am cunoscut pe cineva care să apară mai discret undeva decât Victor Felea. Nu apărea, ci pur şi simplu se insinua, până şi pe holurile redacţiei de la Tribuna, unde era de altfel unul din şefii revistei. Cu atât de mult pe stradă. Figura lui era inconfundabilă – pe lângă el păream obraznici, prea tineri, şi prea sănătoşi. Cu prea multă perspectivă, şi prea puţină experienţă.

      Venea înspre redacţia Tribunei aproape în fiecare zi la aceeaşi oră. Nu se grăbea, probabil savura spectacolul străzii. Se oprea întotdeauna să stea de vorbă cu mine, mă contamina cu timiditatea lui şi apoi mă întreba ce e nou.. Întrebare la care brusc mi se părea foarte greu de răspuns. Victor Felea îşi folosea celebra lui timiditate. De altfel folosea timiditatea ca pe un scut. Mi-e greu să-mi imaginez că a fost vreodată inoportunat. Şi totuşi am avut parte de dovada că această discreţie ascundea libertate şi curaj. Eram pe vremea aceea, la Tribuna, un fel de nomine odiosa – omul pe care nu-l iubeşte DRP. Nu ştiu de unde apăruse această reputaţie, bănuiesc că fusese construită de redactorii veşnic precauţi să nu apară aspiranţi prea curajoşi. Prea grăbiţi. În ce mă priveşte, stratagema a funcţionat: puteau să treacă ani întregi fără să mă bage cineva în seamă. Înafară de Victor Felea, care în fiecare vară, în perioada când Şeful cel Mare se afla în concediu la Neptun, mă oprea în stradă şi după ce schimbam câteva politeţuri inhibatorii îmi cerea răspicat o proză scurtă, care apărea de fiecare dată în acea lună de graţie în care el, de unul singur, făcea ca lucrurile să revină la normal.

      Nu ştiu dacă i s-a reproşat vreodată, dar de atunci, poate şi în semn de recunoştinţă, nu m-am mai lăsat păcălit de celebra lui timiditate.

Poetry Tribute by - Andrei Zanca

↑ Grab this Headline Animator

andrei zanca


întreaga viaţă răzleţim

spre a deprinde

pe îndelete

iubirea pentru ceva cu neputinţă

de zărit ori de rostit, vei simţi tu

vreodată, cum se cabrează

această spunere acum?

fiecare carte pare a zice

- cu aşternuta sfială a nesiguranţei   

nu-i aşa?

apoi, îşi sporeşte zvârcolirile.


saltul între singurătate şi însingurare

            e mortal


şi e ca şi atunci, când

un om drag se stinge


şi tu deîndată te-ntrebi

cu o anume măhnire, oare


s-o mai fi gândind acum la mine?



POATE ÎNTREAGA TAINĂzace într-un fior:

oriunde am fi ne sfâşie-o crevasă, altminteri

de n-am fi cunoscut acel loc cândva –

am putea fi oare fisuraţi

            de ceea ce cu atâta ezitare

                        am numit dor?


iar de vreodată vom ajunge din nou acolo

nu ne vom dori oare din nou Aici, şi fie

doar de dragul unei păduri

a unei toamne, ori a unei


respiraţii în mers

egal pe-un mal

de frunze



            tot ce-atunci n-am ştiut

<istyle="">            a preţui îndeajuns</istyle="">

            iubito, Clipa?

într-adevăr, pesemne

a fi  şi  a nu fi

e totul

şi poate ajunge

           şi poate ajunge să iubeşti deplin

           o singură fiinţă, celelalte faceri

oricum vor fi îngropate cândva sub dune, doamne

            neputinţa noastră în faţa lumii

ne reîntoarce pesemne mereu

în circumscriere atenuată de pădure, ascult

cum toarce în adânc putinţa ta, despre mine?

despre mine se va vorbi

mereu în


ko aham?

Ko-aham   - (cine sunt–in indiană;  kung-an, în chineză ;. ...koan)
