Racism[edit]

Error, what's your interest in describing Basque nationalist as racist?Idiazabal 22:05, 28 Oct 2004 (UTC)

The concept of a Basque race that should keep apart from evil maketos is the basis of Arana's nationalism. The early PNV was a racist party. Please don't remove that information. If you think that PNV's attitude to race has changed along time, then the article should make clear its ideology then and now. -- Error 01:12, 29 Oct 2004 (UTC)
No, I can't agree anew. The assertion of Arana weren't cause racism but cause the "invasion" and the loose of Basque identity. He only tried to make survive us. There are lots of text of the time that would justify his attitude. Has you read the assertons against the Basque language and our legal system made by a lot of Spaniards? If you like it I can show them you.

PNV in July 1936[edit]

And what's that novelated history about the "Navarrese branch"? Do you know what happened with Navarre and the Statute? And it seems that you have not clear the differencies among nationalist and carlist. Why have you such interest in mixing both to try to make appear as if some part of PNV would be favorable to the coup, when it is totally false? Idiazabal 14:32, 30 Oct 2004 (UTC)
La cuestión nacional en los años 30:
"El PNV de Navarra hace pública declaración de que, dada su ideología fervientemente católica y fuerista, no se ha unido ni se une al Gobierno en la lucha actual, declinando en sus autores toda responsabilidad que derive de la declaración de adhesión al Gobierno aparecida en la prensa, sobre la que podemos asegurar, que no ha sido tomada por la autoridad suprema del Partido.", 20 julio de 1936, firmado Napar Buru Batzar.
"El Consejo regional del PNV de Álava con el interés vivamente expuesto de evitar luchas fratricidas y derramamientos de sangre entre hermanos alaveses y para impedir que la anarquía se adueñe de su pueblo ordena a todos los afiliados que realicen pacíficamente las actividades de su vida ciudadana, cumplan puntualmente sus obligaciones sociales y estén atentos en todo momento a las disposiciones de la autoridad militar y delegados que se han constituido. La tierra alavesa, siempre distinguida por su tradición constante de paz y laboriosidad, ha tendio y debe tener en cualqueir instante en los nacionalistas alaveses, alejados siempre de toda violencia por imperativos de sus normas doctrinale y democráticas, eficaces colaboradores de esos dos gloriosos postulados.".
[This version of the communiques is longer than that of the linked page. It's taken from El Nacionalismo Vasco. F. García de Cortázar, J. Manuel Azcona. Historia 16. 1999.]
Un sector del PNV apoya abiertamente el golpe, como el manifiesto de Jabier de Landaburu, diputado a Cortes y Manuel Ibarrondo: "Los suscritos, afiliados al PNV manifiestan: las circunstancias que venía atravesando la gobernación de España y que llevaban irremediablemente a la ruina moral y material de los ciudadanos han hecho que unos hombres de buena voluntad, a impulso exclusivo de su sano patriotismo, iniciaron y estén desarrollando activamente en estos dramáticos momentos una Cruzada de regeneración espiritual y fortalecimiento material. En el panorama que se nos ofrece no caben ya disyuntivas ante la anarquía reinante todavía en muchos pueblos españoles, ante la amenaza seria de un comunismo bárbaro que nada ha de respetar... ya no le cabe duda, y menos al que sea nacionalista vasco, el que desea para este país un mínimo de libertad y de bienestar que el comunismo nunca conseguiría... exhortamos a nuestros amigos nacionalistas a no impedir y coadyuvar al éxito inminente de quienes van a redimir tan precioso tesoro y a gritar con ellos viva España, viva el País Vasco".

Being Garcia de Cortazar who wrote, what would you hope? I would ask for blibliography more balanced than that of Cortazar, who you have to know that entered in the Francoism revitalizing aimed by Aznar and the Partido Popular, which textualy in its internal papers expressed as its goal: recuperar, discretamente, los valores asociados con el regimen anterior tan injustamente vilipendiados. And are these the bibliographical resources where you base the historical versions?
Are you denying that those PNV branches issued those communiques after the coup or not? If the above are factual texts, they are important, independently of who is quoting them. Of course, if you find that the real texts were different, or that PNV has some view on them, tell us. -- Error 01:16, 8 Nov 2004 (UTC)
By the way, has you red the Fraga's prologue to a recent book negationist of the Holocaust. Perhapps it would serve also to take some quotations for historicist purposes, although I doubt of the usefulness of such a book's historical statements.
No idea of that book. -- Error 01:16, 8 Nov 2004 (UTC)
Or even about the Bombing of Guernica you would find plenty resources of people similar to Cortazar that had expressed during 40 years that the town was burnt also by the so-called rojo-separatistas. Or Cortazar ideological friends that still today states that the death toll was but a mere 150, based also in bibliographical writings. Are you favorable of such revisionist ideological current built under the Aznar regime?Idiazabal 12:33, 7 Nov 2004 (UTC)
I am not quoting Cortázar. I am quoting PNV. Do you dispute the quotes or not? -- Error 01:16, 8 Nov 2004 (UTC)
Yes, I dispute the quotes. Just in case a person or two would say it, as now we know Guevara or Arregui's opinions can't be taken as any parties branch. Surely you know yet that of the michelines. But if you want to resolve the dispute, it is easier, wasn't Irujo from the Navarrese PNV? The possible fact (if it would be as Cortazar states, which is obviously extremely biased againt the Basque nationalism, it doesn't mean in any way the two person's writen appeared (if it was so) in the middle of a war of propaganda subsequent with the rebelion would be PNV's branches official nor extra-official opinion.
And Cortazar book was published also in the context of a strong propaganda war that Aznar conducted against the Basque nationalism. To take anything from within such ultra-biased lampoons has not any sense. Idiazabal 19:25, 8 Nov 2004 (UTC)
The releases are signed by the local Buru Batzar-s, so they go in the article. Landaburu and Ibarrondo represented themselves, even if they had some authority in PNV. Anyway, I have now qualified that Navarre and Alava were soon under rebel control, if you think it justifies the releases. About quoting from García de Cortazar, you have just said that "But as with any rebbutal, it gives us interesant data, i.e. its citations of Alfonso X el Sabio compilation or Fuero Real, Fuero Juzgo, etc." -- Error 02:19, 9 Nov 2004 (UTC)
The releases or the Cortazar writing? You can take also Salas Larrazabal writings that said a mere hundred died in Guernica. Is it enough Salas writings to conclude it was so? Surely you can find more about the history, there has to have lots of documents appart from what Cortazar says. Surely if you read Pio Moa you can find even worst things. Are they true? Not. And Cortazar is precissely an author that enroled in Aznar's anti-nationalist propaganda war. He discredited himself.
But as I said you, there were Basque government Counselers and even the one who Aguirre appointed to be minister in the Madrid government that was precissely Navarrese, and as it, from the Navarrese branch and NBB. The fact that in the logic propaganda war made by the rebels, two persons signed a document didn't qualify it as how the party's. You can say and point out that there appeared such a document signed (if realy signed by them) by two persons. This is not "a branch" of the party as Arregui and Guevara aren't now "a branch". Garaikoetxea on the other hand headed a branch. Do you see the difference. An of course, if you take into account, as you should, that that document appeared in a Navarre where in such days 3.000 people were fusilladed in its roads and their house's backyards. The pretended use of such a stinky document is totaly malicious.
In the case of the Alavese, I can't say how it was, but there were very important people that participated actively in the BNP inteligency services, even also fusillades by the Francoist authorities in the postwar period while they worked for the Allies in the WWII. It is a little bit malicious also to try to pinpoint them as "a branch that sided with Franco". Has you thought in it? Cortazar did, and possitioned himself clearly.Idiazabal 12:13, 12 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Historia 16[edit]

This version:

  • The Biscayne and Guipuzcoan branches, the more important in number, declared support for the republic, democracy and anti-Fascism in the following Spanish Civil War.
  • In the territory seized by the rebels, PNV members faced tough times:
    • The Alavese and Navarrese committees published notes refusing support to the Republic.
    • Some nationalists could flee to France or the Republican area.
    • Some faced the rebel forces, ending in prison or shot.
    • Some joined the Carlist batallions, either out of conviction or to avoid attacks.
The repression was focused on leftists, but nationalists were also targeted. Their premises and press were closed in that month of July.

is a summary of a paragraph from Entre el Pacto de San Sebastián y el de Santoña (1930-1937) , José Luis de la Granja Sainz, UPV, Historia 16 nº 271, November 1998, pages 31-32. I can copy it here if you ask, but I'll skip typing so much if I can. -- Error 02:59, 13 Nov 2004 (UTC)

What happened with the paragraph:
There appeared published on 20th July a press release in which two personalities of the Navarrese branch supposedly was declaring no support for the legitimate government. (During those days 3.000 Navarrese people were fusilladed on roads and their house's backyards.)
Was it uncertain or what? And are your resources to say that the repression was mainly directed against leftist. For what I've seen, and I have some areas accute resources, they were fusilladed without any difference being them leftist or nationalist. If you want I can look at i.e. Arrasate list of fusillades and you can bet that most of them were nationalist. The same if we would look at Ondarreta prison listings.Idiazabal 13:00, 13 Nov 2004 (UTC)
The releases are from ABB and NBB. If by "two personalities" you mean Ibarrondo and Landaburu, I think that it's enough to say that some PNV members joined the requetés. Historia 16 mentions "for instance, several members of the Aranzadi family and the Navarrese officer Ramón Goñi".
Historia 16 says:
La represión en Álava y Navarra, aún cebándose sobre todo en las izquierdas, también afectó al nacionalismo vasco, que fue proscrito con su prensa y sus centros quedaron clausurados a partir de julio de 1936.
I haven't looked for Alavese data, but Page 14 says:
[...]si no a un minucioso plan, sí a una idea extendida: lo que denominaban "limpieza del personal de izquierdas". Partiendo de las cifras que proporciona el detallado recuento realizado por Al-Taffaylla en cada pueblo resulta que sobre un total de 2.564 muertos en Navarra (la casi totalidad nacidos o residentes en la provincia) el 80% murieron en 1936.
[...]Lo hizo en noviembre, cuando más de mil quinientos navarros habían perdido la vida en las cunetas de muchas carreteras, en los campos o en los fosos de la Ciudadela de Pamplona.
[...]Los pueblos que más la padecieron fueron los de la Ribera, en los que se habían producido fuertes conflictos sociales en demanda de tierra y la mayor parte de los asesinados eran jornaleros y obreros, aunque también había empleados, maestros, abogados, médicos. En poblaciones como, por ejemplo, Azagra, Cárcar, Lodosa, Mendavia, Sartaguda, en la ribera del Ebro, el número de muertos en esas fechas se sitúa en torno al 30 por mil de su población total en 1930. El caso más extremo es el de Sartaguda, que recibió el sobrenombre de pueblo de las viudas, donde la cifra llegó al 68 por mil de su población. La mayoría eran de izquierdas, sin especificar militancia concreta, o pertenecían a la UGT.
Is it relevant the exact number of victims to this article?
Arrasate and Ondarreta are in Guipuzcoa, so the proportion of victims should be different to Alava and Navarre. -- Error 00:25, 14 Nov 2004 (UTC)
Then, where is the documented base to state that the repression was directed mainly to leftist? in socialist publications? If you look at nationalist publications be sure that they will go to say the opposite.
If you still feel that the exact number of victims between 18th and 20th is important to this article, please provide those "nationalist publications". I don't know if that Al-Tafaylla document is a "socialist publication". -- Error 02:01, 20 Nov 2004 (UTC)
And I ask anew. Wasn't a Basque nationalist from the Navarrese branch who entered in the Republican government justice ministery to represent the Basque nationalism? Then how is it that you are trying to charge the nationalism as sided with the Francoist, even although as you knows 3.000 people were being fusilladed in those days in their backyards.
Irujo was in Andoain on 18th July. I suppose that were he in Navarre that day, he would be one of the Some faced the rebel forces, ending in prison or shot. or Some nationalists could flee to France or the Republican area. As you can read in that link, Irujo didn't take part of the decisions of NBB. -- Error 02:01, 20 Nov 2004 (UTC)
Perhapps it is going to be as the racism you don't let opportunity to pinpoint, although at the end in is the Real Madrid of Madrid (the city of Spanish tolerance) who appears as racist and xenophobic as yesterday.Idiazabal 14:12, 18 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Surnames[edit]

Just in case, the rules for the Basque surnames[1]: "Son socios originarios los que gozan de 4 apellidos vascos; adoptados los que ostentan un apellido vasco entre los 4 primeros, y los otros 3 extranjeros de padres nacidos en Euskaria; y adictos los que sólo tienen dos apellidos vascos entre los 4 primeros y otro heredado de padres nacidos en el extranjero o quienes soportan cuatro apellidos extranjeros heredados de padres nacidos en los dominios vascos". -- Error 02:20, 7 Nov 2004 (UTC)

¿Surnames? Have you red the article from where you've taken the cite? There are a lot more of assertions, as i.e. "La raíz milenaria de Euzko y que Euzkadi es la patria de los vascos". Which is just what I said in the article about him. (I don't know why you directed me to the Arana's article to debate about, but now you take a sentence of Arana and extend it to the Party and bring it here.) Perhapps I should let you to write about the Basques and the nationalist and devote myself to Fraga and the Spanish butchers and torturers still in a sort of anti-basque mission.
Very encyclopedic indeed.Idiazabal 12:45, 7 Nov 2004 (UTC)
Again, are you disputing that the surname rules are part of the initial PNV rules or not? -- Error 01:44, 8 Nov 2004 (UTC)
Surely you are speaking about Arana's writings. They are yet enough described in his article. Obviously you don't like the Basque nationalist, but if your bibliography is taken from Cortazar or any other of the anti-basque lampooners so well paid by a lot of Spanish fundations, perhapps you should ask yourself if it is appropiate for a encyclopedia.
Besides, you've taken the text from an article about Arana's centenary, then it would apply in any case to him, not to the Basque Nationalist Party where you've taken it.Idiazabal 20:28, 8 Nov 2004 (UTC)
The quote is from the PNV rules for membership. They are probably written by some of the Arana brothers. Anyway here you have Manifiesto y organización del Partido Nacionalista Vasco aprobados en la Asamblea Nacionalista celebrada en Bilbao el día 8 de diciembre de 1906. Article 3 (Page 7/36):
Para tener derecho a ser afiliado del Partido Nacionalista Vasco, se requiere:
La prueba de la oriundez vasca del solicitante, con uno al menos de sus cuatro primeros apellidos de procedencia euzkérica indudable.[...]
So three years after the death of Arana, the party was still asking for one out of four Basque surnames.
And Contemporary Nationalism : Civic, Ethnocultural, and Multicultural Politics by David Brown, page 82
In 1894, membership of Arana's `Basque Club', which preceded the PNV, had required the ability to show by surname the possession of four male Basque grandparents, but by 1908 the resultant low membership meant that this had to be relaxed to one grandparent. Moreover, the issue of race began ...""'
-- Error 02:08, 9 Nov 2004 (UTC)
La prueba de la oriundez vasca del solicitante, con uno al menos de sus cuatro primeros apellidos de procedencia euzkérica indudable.[...]
That's one surname in four. A little bit different of what you said previously, indeed. I would say that it wasn't any barbarian thing in a time when thousands of Basques had been expelled to Argentina, Mexico, Venezuela... Ask to any other country subjected to military occupation and relocation, destruction of their natural language and culture, even in present day conflicts.
Obviously you don't like Basque nationalist.Idiazabal 02:24, 9 Nov 2004 (UTC)


Ha ha ha... Have you passed across the article you've linked to reach until that paragraph, while leaving those others unred?:

Un siglo después siguen dando guerra su espectro y sus rudimentos identitarios. Alguien me comentaba una vez, en el transcurso de una tertulia, que el fenómeno catalán da miedo, mientras que el vasco cabrea al carpetovetónico crédulo cuya eucaristía es el telediario. Es el conjuro, o la conjura, que no cesa. Resulta engorroso desperdiciar saliva arguyendo que no se debe jamás, en ese ejercicio historicista y puntual que es el periodismo recto, proclamar arbitrariedades surgidas de otros tiempos, de testimonios de un mismo cariz, de crónicas interesadas. O de unas coyunturas específicas, en el caso del aranismo, que llevaban a la nación colectiva y arbitraria del post-carlismo a la decadencia, la decrepitud, la corrupción nauseabunda, la monarquía de baraja y el liberalismo meapilas que iba detrás del cura ora con un cirio, ora con una estaca. Imagen y proceso que hoy, pringue demagógico, se sigue tratando como noticia de actualidad retrospectiva (en lo que a Sabino Arana se refiere). Y ello, en un marco reiterado con el estribillo de que ya estamos en el siglo XXI. Sabino Arana y el PNV del XIX, también. Se suele asociar mecánicamente el nombre de Sabino, fundador del PNV-EAJ, merced a los medios de comunicación manipulables a dedo desde La Moncloa y a través de otras campañas de continuidad mediática y madrileñista, con el racismo excluyente. Nadie se para a pensar que Sabino Arana, en su fugaz pero dinámica existencia de 38 años, fue contemporáneo de la abolición de los Fueros tras el Pacto de Vergara que diera fin a una de las guerras civiles (y guerrillas) más sanguinarias de que noticia se tiene en Europa. La tercera carlistada, no les quepa duda, fue la otra hecatombe de 1936-39. Los gudaris vascos, en esas fechas, se mantienen fieles a la República, aun desde principios y programas políticamente enfrentados entre sí. Aguirre, lendakari entonces, se decanta por la legalidad vigente aun a sabiendas de que, si se vence al fascio, tendría que seguir luchando por un programa opuesto al síndrome de Rousseau de los progresistas a quienes apoya.
En la trinchera de enfrente, los que iban a rodar "Raza", guión de cine de Franco pasado por el filtro obediente de Sáenz de Heredia, seguían hablando del racismo de los vascos. Sin pararse a pensar que la vida del fundador del PNV discurrió en una época deprimida, de tumultos, latrocinios e ideología de café. Lo más significativo, que las tiendas hasta entonces llamadas "de coloniales" se cambiaban el rótulo y ponían "ultramarinos". Y que en lo más hondo del aranismo latía una negativa a ser español por decreto en una España tenebrosa, paupérrima y sin rumbo. Era el no al proyecto de un general Prim, progresista (y militar) que deseaba instalar en el trono vacante a un Hohenzollern, y de un Amadeo de Saboya pasmado y sin brújula que ni siquiera sabía castellano, todo ello en una Restauración de esperpento, en un sistema parademocrático y agusanado por el denostado pero inmune caciquismo que compraba votos a cambio de prebendas, canonjías y fueros incumplidos o desarraigados por la fuerza. Alguien tenía que decir lo que pensaban muchos vascos más allá de la leyenda que les atribuía un origen incierto y una lengua diabólica, sólo sincretizada con el romance a través de diversos neologismos añadidos por la técnica. Las anécdotas al respecto en la vida parlamentaria de Sabino Arana son regocijantes como todo hecho histórico y pretérito. Ante todo, era un raro que, elegido diputado, proclama en una ponencia que "se impongan onerosos arbitrios a los pianos mecánicos o de manubrio (los organillos) porque desvirtúan y envilecen el carácter de las romerías vascas". También llega a proponer que en los talleres de la cárcel de Larrinaga, que ha sido varias veces su involuntario hotel, "se separe a los detenidos que sepan euskera de los que hablan en castellano para evitar que aquéllos aprendan blasfemias". Sin duda alguna, se pueden argüir sus apreciaciones acerca de la feminidad de los andares majos del torero en contra de una estética de levantador de pedruscos que le era más grata. No trata el fundador de establecer superioridad: sólo distinción, aunque su concepto de ella pase por el feísmo.

I would say that the rest of the article is more explanatory than just the cite you've cut conveniently from its contex. What about:

"El pobre es explotado y tratado como bestia por industriales, mineros, comerciantes y propietarios (..) Habéis perdido las elecciones (el PSOE) porque el oro corrompe al individuo y lo aleja de la tradición espiritual, Jainkoa eta Lagi Zarrak, de los vizcaínos (..) Los capitalistas de Europa han traído la mano de obra extranjera y con ella la blasfemia, el crimen y el librepensamiento (..) Nunca hemos visto desplegar la fuerza pública contra los capitalistas obstinados en sostener los beneficios: siempre y únicamente contra los obreros que piden los suyos".

Should we conclude from such a cite that he was some kind of Christian-Marxist?

I'd say that it was the anti-Liberal Catholic doctrine of the age, but I may be wrong. I have linked it because it's the only place where I could find a direct quote of the surname rules. Did the early PNV have a social program towards workers besides expelling the non-Basque ones? If so, you could add it to the article. -- Error 01:44, 8 Nov 2004 (UTC)
Anew, you've taken an article about Arana, and from it a mere paragraph out of context, and put it as if it was from PNV. It borders the pure intoxication technic.
And your last question... how would I say, don't you know the PNV program toward workers and still are speaking about expelling anybody? Well, it makes it clear enough what's your point in your interest in Basque issues. Surely your Santiago Matamoros is a good example of your points of viow. Idiazabal 20:28, 8 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Let me say, Error, that it seems you're in a little bit stubborn crussade against Basque nationalism and by extenssion against the Basques and the Basque issue. Even in genetic studies you pretend that, as when Galileo, it is better not to mention or acknowledge them because it might go against such anti-basque crussade.

Moreless in the same way the torture, continued today against Basques, is better not to be mentioned. Of course the biography of Fraga the Butcher must be polished and there you are to accomplish with the hard work, as long as your Basque crussade leaves you time for it.

Have I written recently about torture? Where? If you want to add some facts about Fraga, you know where to go. -- Error 01:44, 8 Nov 2004 (UTC)
Why? I can perfectly explain a lot of Basque attitudes from the point of viow of the Basques expelled from their land by the thousands, populating Argentina, Venezuela, etc. etc. cause the wars and the Spanish military occupation of the Basque Country all along the XIX, which was what Arana (being himself exilee and five times imprisoned) explained on his rude words. And a XX century of tortures, prohibitions, confiscations, etc. All these are Basque issues.Idiazabal 20:28, 8 Nov 2004 (UTC)
Manzanas traigo. -- Error 02:08, 9 Nov 2004 (UTC)

But this is not new. It was yet in the doctrines of Jose Antonio Primo de Rivera and its 98's Generation intelectuals:

Hoy, ahora, mañana, y va para largo, el vocablo 'nacionalista' se ha desaforado. No es la primera vez. Ya los joseantonianos afirmaban a través de sus núcleos de propaganda imperial y de noventaiochismo decadente y lacrimoso que "los vascos separatistas se creen una raza superior". No existe tal cosa. Es decir, residir en Euskal Herria es un continuo renuncio al tedio, créanlo. Y una continua incoherencia entre entidad e identidad. Se impugna, desde la irracionalidad de defender la ignorancia, no el despliegue de facultades intelectivas, que los vascos deseen consolidar y difundir su idioma.

Which is consistent with Garcia de Cortazar and those other ultranationalist you've shown as bibliography. There are plenty literature of those people, included the socialistes, that were lampooning the Basque culture and advocating for the extintion of the Basque language. And it seems you're a follower of such dictrines. Idiazabal 14:57, 7 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Until 1933[edit]

ETA was not created by PNV![edit]

"ETA was created by members of the Basque Nationalist Party in 1958 who were dissatisfied by the Party's supposedly moderate policies." This is not completely true. ETA was created by young intellectuals, some of them from the PNV youth organization EGI but some other not. And PNV has never support ETA's terrorism

On rounding[edit]

@Discasto:Thanks for the explanation, no problem with rounding, it looks fine now. I left again a message on your page about how WP works, as I did before, for you to understand. Thanks for keeping it cooperative Iñaki LL (talk) 17:37, 7 December 2016 (UTC)

It looked fine when you made your puerile reversion (BTW, without any edit summary, as you keep on again and again requesting... to others). Just a question of inspecting the table. However, you seem to be more interested in wikihounding me in a futile attempt to irritate, annoy or distress me... Unfortunately (for you) I'm used to that kind of problematic behavior from guys like you and I'll keep on editing. Funny to see how you have learned some wikilawyering jargon and use it as a stick in order to distress other editors. Your stalking attitude portrays you, and in pretty unfavourable way. --Discasto (talk) 18:46, 7 December 2016 (UTC)
Listen, I am over with you accusatory, noisy rant. Obviously I was writing the summary line when unintentionally I saved changes. I left you two times advice about adding a summary line, still you removed them and came to my page in a confrontational manner, and continued skipping advice on proper WP editing thereafter, no summary line. That may be regarded as not only confrontational but disruptive to the WP community. I reverted your edit in this article for an important, not puerile matter: it had no explanation whatsoever, i.e. it was at face value. An explanation would have done the trick and would have greatly added to the smooth editing. Do add an explanation and verified information to keep a constructive editing environment. Thank you Iñaki LL (talk) 23:01, 7 December 2016 (UTC)

Basque national party[edit]

Somebody has revert my chaneges, the real name of the party is Basque national party in english as the official page says in Facebook https://www.facebook.com/basquenationalparty/?ref=br_rs — Preceding unsigned comment added by 62.99.79.62 (talk) 14:03, 25 July 2018 (UTC)

@62.99.79.62: WP:NCPARTY and WP:COMMONNAME apply here. The party is mostly known in English sources as "Basque Nationalist Party", rather than "Basque National Party". In fact, results are so overwhelming in favour of "Basque Nationalist Party" that there is little point in further discussion (also, "Nationalist" is a much more correct translation of Nacionalista than "National" (which translates in Spanish as Nacional)). Impru20talk 14:11, 25 July 2018 (UTC)
@Impru20: The official website of the party indicates "Basque National Party" https://www.basquenationalparty.eus/ as well as the European political party EDP: http://democrats.eu/ molui (talk) 14:52, 25 July 2018 (UTC)
@Molui: The Encyclopedia Britannica lists it as "Basque Nationalist Party", as do the CNN, The Guardian, the BBC or Politico, just to list a few. Searches in Google give around 40,000+ results for "Basque Nationalist Party", as opposed to just 8,000+ for "Basque National Party". We could say the same about Google News, which favours "Basque Nationalist Party" over "Basque National Party" by 1,500+ to just 300+. You would find a similar result in GBooks, with 10,000+ for "Nationalist" to just 900+ for "National". Results in Google Ngram are also very one-sided in favour of "Nationalist". Even if we resorted to a basic analysis of Wikipedia searches, it becomes obvious to the eye that "Basque National Party" is a nearly unsearched term.
WP:NCPP rules that The title used in reliable English-language sources both inside and outside the political party's country (in scholarly works and in the news media), should be preferred (this is, a mere reflection of what WP:COMMONNAME already establishes, i.e. that Wikipedia does not necessarily use the subject's "official" name as an article title; it generally prefers the name that is most commonly used (as determined by its prevalence in a significant majority of independent, reliable English-language sources)). As per the provided evidence, only "Basque Nationalist Party" meets all of these conditions.
Note that I am not saying that we could not add a line or so in the lead that shows that "Basque National Party" is an alternative English name for the party, but it is obvious that, as of today, "Basque Nationalist Party" is the main name to go. Impru20talk 15:19, 25 July 2018 (UTC)

@88.14.194.11: I basically reiterate myself to the above comment. "Basque Nationalist Party" is the COMMONNAME by a wide margin, so you should seek an alternative consensus to use your proposal (which is in a clear minority in sources) and explain why both WP:COMMONNAME (a core naming guideline in Wikipedia) and WP:NCPP should be overruled for this specific case. Note that COMMONNAME clearly states that Wikipedia does not necessarily use the subject's "official" name as an article title; it generally prefers the name that is most commonly used (as determined by its prevalence in a significant majority of independent, reliable English-language sources). You can even use the mechanism at WP:RM#CM to propose a move request to the broader community and laid down your arguments for the move, to check if those have the support of the wider community for overruling both COMMONNAME and the specific naming convention for articles on political parties. Impru20talk 22:46, 20 August 2018 (UTC)

I can not really understand the stupidity of this discussion about the name of a party that is calling itself "NATIONAL", I feel like speaking with children of 5 years old, What part of the official name of the party, choosen by the party, decided by the party can not you understand?
If the SNP (Scotthish national party) decides to change its name to SNC (Scottish national coalittion) and if you search in Internet you find more results of SNP, will wikipedia still use SNP or the official name SNC?
I can not believe that I am having this discussion, it is simply ridiculous
The rules of wikipedia you refer can not be taken into account when the official name of the party has beeen changed less than a year ago, and you search in Internet with no date restrictions. I could find during the next 20 years more results of the nationalist than national because the party is 123 years old, so it will be easy to find documents with nationalist rather than national.
Try to find limiting to one month or six month results. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 88.14.194.11 (talk) 23:11, 20 August 2018 (UTC)
Firstly, avoid personal attacks.
Secondly, the SNP/SNC example you give is not the same as what would be the case here: the PNV is still called the PNV, i.e. Partido Nacionalista Vasco (or Euzko Alderdi Jeltzalea in Basque). We are only discussing a possible change in the allegedly "official" translation of the name. Here, the vast majority of sources use "Nationalist" as opposed to "National". And let me say that "Nationalist" is the literal translation of Nacionalista as well. Thus, WP:COMMONNAME prevails.
Thirdly, sure. Let's take it from one week: 13 results for "Nationalist", 2 for "National" (one being the party's Instagram account, btw). For the past month: 46 for "Nationalist", 15 for "National" (of which 9 are from the party's Twitter, Facebook and Instagram). Results for the last six months would be equally lopsized, if not more. Also note that the CNN, The Guardian, the BBC or Politico sources I posted in my above comment are dated from May to July 2018.
I do not know why the party has changed its translation to a term which does not correlate with its Spanish spelling, but for now, English reliable sources are not sticking to the "new" (alternative) translation. Impru20talk 23:38, 20 August 2018 (UTC)
You are missuderstanding what is the discussion about, we are not speaking about "allegedly official translation", we are speaking about the official name of a party used in the European Union institutions. You should understand that. It is not a translation is a NAME.
Second, the date that the name was changed was months ago, less than a year, but as the party has 123 years during the next 50 years will be more results about nationalist than about national, I think you can understand that. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.86.115.126 (talk) 06:54, 22 August 2018 (UTC)
The official party name is Euzko Alderdi Jeltzalea-Partido Nacionalista Vasco. Period. "Basque National Party" is a translation, just as "Basque Nationalist Party" is. I think you can easily understand what a translation is.
Well, if within 50 years "Basque National Party" becomes the WP:COMMONNAME, then a name change will proceed. For the time being, "Basque Nationalist Party" is by far the most common name, so there is little trouble on which one should be the one used in the article. Impru20talk 09:28, 22 August 2018 (UTC)
The official party name in English chosen by the party, elected by party members in 2011. The party decided to call itself officialy Basque NATIONAL Party. I am starting to think that you have obscure interests in the insistently of your arguments that are wrong. You have to simply understand that the party decided to change the name in English to NATIONAL, a name to be used internattionaly and if every UE official document or act.
In this link https://www.abc.es/20111125/espana/abci-partido-nacionalista-vasco-201111251058.html in the third paragraph is extremely clear, is not a translation is just a name. I hope you can understand that a party, a company or an association can decide its official name for different scopes or countries — Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.86.115.126 (talk) 20:05, 22 August 2018 (UTC)
Linking you again to WP:COMMONNAME: Wikipedia does not necessarily use the subject's "official" name as an article title; it generally prefers the name that is most commonly used (as determined by its prevalence in a significant majority of independent, reliable English-language sources) as such names will usually best fit the five criteria listed above.
Please, I would ask you to assume good faith before "starting to think that I have obscure interests in the insistently of my arguments that are wrong". COMMONNAME is a Wikipedia policy, and WP:NCPP is a Wikipedia naming convention. If you think they are wrong, maybe you should propose to change them, but this is not the place for it. As of currently, the title used in reliable English-language sources both inside and outside the political party's country should be preferred. So far this favours "Basque Nationalist Party". But I repeat it to you: If you want the article title to be changed so badly, just request a move to see if such a proposal gets the community's consensus. Impru20talk 20:44, 22 August 2018 (UTC)
Firstly you mentioned that was a simple translation, later when your arguments are beated, you mix two Wikipedia conventions trying to have reason about something that is not understable for common sense. Really you can again say the stupidty that the party would wait 50 years to have its official name in wikipedia? OMG
Your obscures interests are easy to certificate visiting your personal page
You are mixing two conventions with an wrong intenttionality, first convention speaks about common names of articles, any article, for example an artist artistic name that everybody uses rather than the name of the artist, the second one that is specifically about the Political Parties translation names when we are speaking about an official name not about a translation that need to be made because does not exist the official name. I would like to have more opinions about this controversia, people not spanish as you are. I hope everybody understands that should be the title of the article. Probably you could find more entries about Spanish Socialist party than Spanish Socialist worker´s party (site:bbc.com "Spanish Socialist worker's party" 11 results - site:bbc.com "Spanish Socialist party" 115 results) Will you rename the article please? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.86.115.126 (talk) 07:47, 23 August 2018 (UTC)
Hmm no, I've maintained WP:COMMONNAME and WP:NCPP from the very first beginning of the discussion (in fact I've just repeated the same argument over and over again): that it is the most commonly used name in English reliable sources the one that gets to be used. Maybe it's 50 years for we to use "National", or maybe it's never. It depends on when (and if) English sources do use such a name. And, as of now, they don't. You may blame me for it, but it is not my fault, I'm sorry.
Nonetheless, you've resorted from "National must be the name because it is the official name" to outright personal attacks and assuming bad faith on me once you've seen WP policies do not back your claims, which is bad. I've told you how to propose a name request if that is what you want and you persistently refuse to do it. Why? It is maybe because you know you may possibly not get the community's consensus for a move? Impru20talk 08:48, 23 August 2018 (UTC)
On the issue of the Spanish Socialist Workers' Party, maybe you should propose a move at that page as well if you seek it to be moved. Nonetheless, "Spanish Socialist Workers' Party" gives out 56,700 results as opposed to 53,700 for "Spanish Socialist Party". So your own claim that "probably you could find more entries about Spanish Socialist party than Spanish Socialist worker´s party" is false. Further, the PSOE is not a case where various English translations may be found for the party as it is the case for the PNV ("Spanish Socialist Party" being an incomplete, rather than an alternative, translation). Impru20talk 09:04, 23 August 2018 (UTC)
No, you started speaking about the conventions, then you said that is just a translation, when you realized about that is not a translation you mixed again the conventions that you want extracting what you want to read, I can not have faith after these changes of arguments.
Secondly you should use a better and more deep tool to search over Internet than using Google two terms enclosed in quotaiton marks, Google repeats results and index results several times in different domains if some kind of header exits or not, the results of Google are aproximated results cached over the time and does not represent even the real ammount of results. If you want to really give importance to a google search you should do it reffering the sources and the dates, it is ridiculous give more importance to a source from 1987 than another from 2017, apart of that you have to take into account that the source of the political party is always the most important.
I think that you, as spanish, have a kind of political belifes that are pushing you to have a bad behaviour with this party. Don not damage wikipedia with your political opinios please.
You said that you propose me to propose a name request, I do not have even a user in wikipedia, why did not do you just the first day? Is probably because you will not find consensus
You gave in the begining results of CNN, The Guardian, the BBC or Politico, ok I give you them
BBC "Spanish Socialist party" 115 results - "Spanish Socialist party" 11 results
The Guardian "Spanish Socialist party" 110 results / "Spanish Socialist worker's party" 44
CNN "Spanish Socialist party" 18 results / "Spanish Socialist worker's party" 43
Politico "Spanish Socialist party" 998 results / "Spanish Socialist worker's party" 457
Only this demostrates the poor base of your arguments
When you say "PNV", that is not the name of the party. It is "EAJ-PNV" in spanish — Preceding unsigned comment added by 62.99.79.62 (talk) 10:38, 23 August 2018 (UTC)
IP users can also make such requests, so that's no excuse. You are not a registered account, but IP accounts are also Wikipedia users. I'm not doing such a request because I'm obviously not favouring the move; it would be rather awkward for me to nominate this article for a move, then to expose arguments against such a move.
If you wish for the current article title to be changed to "Basque National Party", I again tell you to issue a move request here. Seriously, it is fairly simple. Request a move, expose your arguments and see if the community agrees with them.
And if you wish for a move to be done for the Spanish Socialist Workers' Party, raise a move request at the proper page. This article is about the PNV. By the way, it is Spanish Socialist Workers' Party, not Spanish Socialist Worker's Party. And you should also provide the links to your own searches; otherwise, it would be difficult to verify these.
You should also know that enclosing searches in quotation marks is needed so as to obtain results for the whole term. Searching just for Spanish Socialist party without quotation marks will give you results that include Spanish, Socialist and party, not results for "Spanish Socialist party". Not the same.
Finally, I again link you to the policies of WP:AGF and WP:NPA. If you can't expose arguments yourself, commenting on the contributor (myself, in this case) will not help your case. Impru20talk 10:46, 23 August 2018 (UTC)
I do not comment about you, who is person that I d not know, I am simply commenting that your political opinions are over the presented arguments and you change from one point to another, and even when I present data of PSOE that you use about PNV, you are not able to simply recognize that your methods are wrong and too simple to decide about party name. And sorry bit I have worked with Google several years, a search without quotation marks give you results even without one of the words, a search in Google without quotation marks can show you a result that combine "Socialist" in the sidebar refering to another link, "party" in the header as party with ballons, and spanish as part of the article. Please never use that, I think that you are missunderstanding how Google works
Your first line is an example of commenting on the contributor.
Exactly, you acknowledge it: a search without quotation marks give you results even without one of the words, a search in Google without quotation marks can show you a result that combine "Socialist" in the sidebar refering to another link, "party" in the header as party with ballons, and spanish as part of the article. This is why I do use quotation marks, so that only results for the combined "Spanish Socialist party" are shown. Something you are seemingly not doing. Nonetheless, I again tell you that this is not the place for this topic. Impru20talk 11:06, 23 August 2018 (UTC)

Basque Nationalist PartyBasque National Party – The party decided in 2011 to change its name to Basque national party for the literal translation from spanish nationalist, This was decided and voted by the party members and it is the official name of the party in the Europe Union and internationally, we are not speaking about a forced translation because the party does not have a name in English, the party call itself NATIONAL not nationalist since 2011. Rules of wikipedia in my opinion are more related to parties that do not have a choosen common name in English rather than they have. Apart of that the official website of the party indicates "Basque National Party" https://www.basquenationalparty.eus/ as well as the European political party EDP: http://democrats.eu/ , and we can consider both sources as more important than newspaper entries. 62.99.79.62 (talk) 10:53, 23 August 2018 (UTC)

  • Oppose as per WP:COMMONNAME, WP:ENGLISH and WP:NCPP, which are preferred by WP over WP:OFFICIALNAME. NCPP rules that The title used in reliable English-language sources both inside and outside the political party's country (in scholarly works and in the news media), should be preferred (this is, a mere reflection of what COMMONNAME already establishes, i.e. that Wikipedia does not necessarily use the subject's "official" name as an article title; it generally prefers the name that is most commonly used (as determined by its prevalence in a significant majority of independent, reliable English-language sources)). ENGLISH also sets out that The title of an article should generally use the version of the name of the subject which is most common in the English language, as you would find it in reliable sources (for example other encyclopedias and reference works, scholarly journals, and major news sources). The Encyclopedia Britannica lists it as "Basque Nationalist Party", as do the CNN, The Guardian, the BBC or Politico, just to list a few. Searches in Google give around 38,000+ results for "Basque Nationalist Party", as opposed to just 7,000+ for "Basque National Party". We could say the same about Google News, which favours "Basque Nationalist Party" over "Basque National Party" by 1,100+ to just 200+. You would find a similar result in GBooks, with 10,000 for "Nationalist" to just 1,000 for "National". Results in Google Ngram are also very one-sided in favour of "Nationalist". Also favouring the use of "Nationalist" is that it is the literal translation of Nacionalista in Partido Nacionalista Vasco. As per the provided evidence, the current name meets all of these conditions, as opposed to the proposed name, which is not commonly used by English reliable sources. Impru20talk 10:59, 23 August 2018 (UTC)
  • Oppose WP:COMMONNAME, the current name is the most commonly used term (as determined by its prevalence in a significant majority of independent, reliable English-language sources). That's not to say that the proposed new denomination cannot be included in the lead (or just as note, in order not to clutter the later too much) with something like "also self-styled as Basque National Party in English", but that's not the matter of this request and should be dealt with elsewhere.---Asqueladd (talk) 11:10, 23 August 2018 (UTC)
I support the proposal of adding the "Basque National Party"-bit in the lead. I guess that could be studied after the conclusion of this move request. Impru20talk 11:17, 23 August 2018 (UTC)
  • Allow Actually the difference is not great between terms if we search filtering the last year results.
"basque national party" 67 results
"basque nationalist party" 91 results
Search should be done with quotation marks beacause we want to obtain the exact term, without them we can find the 3 words separate in different areas of the document.
The policy about "official names" WP:ON says "Where an official name has changed we do give extra weight to secondary sources published after the change, see WP:NAMECHANGES. But this applies only to secondary sources, not to primary sources such as journal articles that simply repeat a press release announcing a name change.".
So has anybody calculated this "extra weight"? Are we taking into account just newspapers that repeat names? Will be possible to mantain a term "Nationalist" against the wish of the political party that call itself NATIONAL?
Would be any problem to update the logo of a political party if the party officially changes it? UPN (Union pueblo Navarro) changed its logo 3 years ago, Will we search in Google for the ammount of pages with the old logo and the new logo? Or Will we just update the logo because otherwise wikipedia is not updated? Whath is the difference? Will a person who receives an email from "Basque national party" search this term or "Basque nationalist party"?
The most correct versión of this article should be entitled "Basque National Party" and add as a note or in the lead "before called Basque nationalist party" ElViejoVascon (talk) 13:59, 29 August 2018 (UTC) Striking vote, as this is a duplicate of the IP user's creation of this proposal - see ANI discussion ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 15:25, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
The links provided elsewhere use quotation marks. This, and also the fact that "Basque National Party" searches re-direct mostly to party sources in social networks, whereas "Basque Nationalist Party" shows results in English newspapers and other such sources.
Besides, note than creating a single-purpose account just for the purpose of trying to create an illusion of support is a non-allowed form of sockpuppetry. Impru20talk 14:25, 29 August 2018 (UTC)
Sorry but I would ask you to assume good faith before start saying what are the purpouses of a new account. For you information a long time ago I started to think about create my own account, comments like you have written are making it a great decission. In other terms you would think that people under the same IP could be people behind the same Internet Connection but not necessarilly the same people. Please respect and please good faith.
This account is not a single purpouse account, It is an account that will add content to many articles about basque people, history and culture, being this article the first because the rare obsession shown about the name. I would assume good faith even being difficult, I hope everybody can do the same.
As the policy says we should give more importance to secondary sources, you are giving importance to newspaper sources that are clear repetitions of old articles titles.ElViejoVascon (talk) 14:44, 29 August 2018 (UTC)
Hits in academic sources (google scholar) heavily favor the current name over the proposed name too (roughly 101).--Asqueladd (talk) 14:53, 29 August 2018 (UTC)
@ElViejoVascon: I am not sure what do you mean with your reply. By saying that a long time ago I started to think about create my own account you seem to confirm that you are indeed the same person as the one filling the move request (in such a case, your !vote is indeed a violation of WP:BADSOCK). You are not intended to vote twice in the same move request. Btw, when various comments are made from the same IP made in quick succession and posting in the same discussion with the same arguments, it's 100% sure they will be taken as made by the same person. This is already done even for different IP or user accounts when such characteristics arise, as per WP:DUCK. Nonetheless, you should have stated that you were the same person as the one filling the move request instead of trying to sneakely disguise under a different account. Impru20talk 15:19, 29 August 2018 (UTC)
@Asqueladd:Probably academic writers are thinking that wikipedia showns the correct name, in my humble opinion should be changed, there is not any profit for wikipedia having the unofficial old name rather than the new one and official, but also "spanish socialist party" has 2.220 results in google scholar for 67 of "spanish socialist worker's party", should the name be changed? ElViejoVascon (talk) 15:29, 29 August 2018 (UTC)
@Impru20: By saying a long time ago I started to think about create my own account seems exactly that a long time ago (almost two years) I was considering create my own account, I was alerted last Saturday by the person who started the discussion of the strange and rare obsession of a wiki member against a simply name change of a party that both persons are members. This other person would not ever write again in wikipedia after her experience with you. Looks unbvelieble the ammount of energy spent by an user against something minor, and the lack of faith. Be calm and enjoy your day and please stop this campaign against my user.
@ElViejoVascon: All of this basically confirms the sockpuppetry. Also, it is noteworthy that you ask me for "assuming good faith", yet you seemingly acknowledge that your own presence in Wikipedia is motivated out of you not assuming good faith from myself in the first place (note that I do not believe your history, which anyway you should have worked upon much better). I'm requesting administrative actions to be taken against you. Impru20talk 15:55, 29 August 2018 (UTC)
@ElViejoVascon: Further, being a party member could mean there is a possible conflict of interest in here by contributing to Wikipedia about an organisation in which you are directly involved, so such a situation should have been disclosed by the IPs accounts upon first becoming involved with this article (and specially upon filling the move request, which is a substantial change to the article). Impru20talk 16:32, 29 August 2018 (UTC)
@Impru20: All of this confirms that you are basically harassing me. I request you respect and avoid comment about myself, stop harassing me and try to respect other wikipedia users. As far as I know I am perfectly entitled to do create an user, speak with other wikipedia members or visitors or have a political opinion. STOP HARASSING ME. Reading the whole discussion is not possible to keep good faith about your user and not a good opinion about somebody obsessed with the title of a document that constantly changes arguments to finally start harassing another user. We are Basques, is that a problem for you? Are you a policeman? Are you trying that we abandon wikipedia?. I do not how to but I will request administrative actions to be taken against you. I request you for last time that stop harassing me. I do not need to give you any explanation and will not give any.
The only conflict of interest is just yours, I am trying to put the official name of a party, decided by the party, to a wiki page, are you sure that you are ok? Substantial change to the article? National or nationalist? Are you having any problem that makes you missunderstand the reality? Oh my god Can anybody stop this person who is annoying and falsely accusing and harassing another user simply because somebody demonstrated that the method he used was so ridiculous? Is a problem of your proud? Stop and leave it, comment whatever you want with respect or employ your time harassing another person. And yes I have read your administrative actions and the answers of other moderators, please forget me. I will not say anymore.
Do not turn this discussion into a battleground. Just drop the stick for once, as you have not even remembered to log in before posting this. You are entitled to create an account for all of what you said, but not to sockpuppet (commenting from multiple accounts to create the illusion of there being multiple people when there is just one); and much less to try to draw a wall of lies on me just because I did not agree with you trying to enforce a name change of this article unilaterally. I have not been offensive with you at any point, but you have. I have nothing else to speak with you here, see you at ANI. Impru20talk 18:10, 29 August 2018 (UTC)
You should stop this obsessive behaviour against my user, me and my coworkers use Wikipedia a lot for different purposes, always anonymously, my friend Asier found this wikipedia page with an incorrect title and tried to change it, after that he found all the policies, rules and an aggressive user, you, that got crazy when his arguments about results in Google were beated. He told me the history and I decided to create my own user ElViejoVascon as the name I use in Twitter, what is the problem? Really you are living with that stress and tension because a article could be changed from "nationalist" to national? haha, omg I hope you have a great life. Does anybody know where can I defend myself against the harassing of user Impru20? ElViejoVascon (talk) 21:48, 29 August 2018 (UTC)
@ElViejoVascon: Try at WP:ANI. And stop the personal attacking, thank you. Btw, posting this comment under your IP account, then signing it under your user account, is not going to particularly help you. Impru20talk 21:53, 29 August 2018 (UTC)
Hi, strictly on name. There seems to be no big difference in Google searches (Ok, yes, triple...), but if we take into account it is rather recent, that makes complete sense. Secondly, there has been a rebranding. In late 1980s Alianza Popular became Partido Popular. No, it is not exactly the same, but it is basically the same, including a re-branding. Would it be correct to keep it calling Alianza Popular after the name change? I do not think so. Iñaki LL (talk) 17:10, 29 August 2018 (UTC)
@Iñaki LL: I do not think such a comparation is even remotely accurate, starting with the fact that both People's Alliance (Spain) and People's Party (Spain) are different parties (to the point of them having separate articles in Wikipedia) and that what happened in 1989 was a whole refoundation comprising the merging of several parties (AP, PDP/DC and the PL) into the PP. Here, the PNV has just omitted a few letters from its English version of the name (from "Nationalist" to "National"). There has not been such a rebranding in the Spanish or Basque names, which furthers the confusion as the new English version of the name does not correspond to other translations. Nonetheless, your example has brought to my head the case of the People's Democratic Party (Spain), which was briefly rebranded as "Christian Democracy" in 1988 but whose article still uses the most common name. Impru20talk 17:43, 29 August 2018 (UTC)
Impru20, you may be right in the re-foundation question. Either way, the lede and the infobox need to be modified in their respective places in order to account for its real name in English. Iñaki LL (talk) 22:13, 29 August 2018 (UTC)
@Iñaki LL: Indeed, both Asqueladd and myself agreed that "Basque National Party" should appear in the lead as an alternative name for the party, though doing that before the closure of the current RM and waiting for its result would seem too wild. I guess we may have a consensus here. Impru20talk 22:16, 29 August 2018 (UTC)

I would call for 2607:fea8:3ca0:2d3:a461:ce81:e6a7:30ac (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · page moves · block user · block log) (whatever the IP used, as it has been already two) to stop the repeatedly tendentious and disruptive, unjustified editing in the article. You are adding mostly unsourced content, changing established sections, distorting consistency with other articles and other massive changes without any justification, as well as suggesting mergings that go outrightly against Wikipedia's guidelines on article splitting. This won't be bad if it did not seem so disruptive at this point, as I've already tried to comment you several times on why your edits were not appropiate and you merely resorted to outright reverts without any justification.

Infobox ideologies[edit]

Surely, the PNV–EAJ is a catch-all party, including people from different political backgrounds, but my sense is that there are too many ideologies in the infobox, some of which are not even ideologies per se ("liberal democracy"—a theory of the state, more than a political ideology for a political party), are obscure ("civic nationalism") or probably redundant ("European federalism", "conservatism" and "conservative liberalism"). Definitely, "Basque nationalism" and "regionalism" should come first and, definitely, "liberal democracy" and "civic nationalism" should be removed. Also, as far as I know, "Christian democracy" is the party's historical ideology. What about "social democracy"? I would keep it, but as a minority. Or has the party moved toward social democracy in recent years? --Checco (talk) 13:35, 5 May 2019 (UTC)

Yes, the historical ideology of the party is "Christian democracy", but apart from some historical leaders or other elements there is little sign of Christian democracy in the policies that the party promotes nowadays. The sources for "social democracy" address the recent turn (2010s) from the liberal stances towards social democracy. As for the rest, "Conservatism" and "conservative liberalism" do sound redundant and the "European federalism", although being a policy PNV advocates for, is not at the core of the party's everyday work. I do think that keeping "civic nationalism" is important, because within Basque nationalism there are two historical trends: ETA's violent nationalism, and PNV and other parties' civic and peaceful nationalism. Also, it states that tha party has no longer ethnic nationalist views as it had when it was founded in 1895. -- Gandalf Grisa 22:59, 8 May 2019
IMO civic nationalism is redundant, as is liberal democracy... European federalism itself is not a political ideology either, so that should go. The best solution (I think) would be to use the example of the article on the South Tyrolean People's Party and state that it is a primarily regionalist (and in this case, Basque nationalist) party, but with various ideologies trends and factions, which in this case have changed over time. IMO.--Autospark (talk) 17:39, 10 May 2019 (UTC)
I agree with removing European federalism and liberal democracy, but I do not think that civic nationalism is redundant, as there are different kinds of Basque nationalism and regionalism. The Plaid Cymru and Scottish National Party pages use the civic nationalism tag along with regionalism and Welsh nationalism or Scottish nationalism as well. I think it is difficult to use the example of the South Tyrolean People's Party because it would be difficult the state what is considered the main faction of the party. Other parties' pages, such as Lega Nord and the Progressive Party from Iceland divide the historical and current ideology. That could be another way of organizing the infobox, but I am not sure it is accurate, as different ideologies still co-exist within the party. Gandalf Grisa 12:42, 11 May 2019
Thanks for participating in this debate! We can easily and quickly remove "European feferalism", "liberal democracy", "conservatism" and "conservative liberalism", for different reasons. This said, I agree with User:Autospark that also "civic nationalism" is quite redundant and, let me add a point, it is not even an ideology per se. Obscure ideologies and long lists of ideologies are just confusing. Finally, I do not see how the party cannot be still considered primarily a Christian-democratic one. This said, "social democracy" should stay, but as a minority ideology. --Checco (talk) 08:54, 14 May 2019 (UTC)
Feeling bold, I am going to remove "civic nationalism", as well as moving "regionalism" down (it could be deleted too: isn't "Basque nationalism" enough?). They are both redundant ideologies in this case, however we already discussed only on the former. --Checco (talk) 09:27, 4 November 2019 (UTC)
Acknowledging what User:Autospark wrote above — "[EAJ-PNV] is a primarily regionalist (and in this case, Basque nationalist) party —, I am going to remove also "regionalism", which is definitely redundant. If someone disagrees, please rollback me! --Checco (talk) 13:58, 4 November 2019 (UTC)
