...well, you were writing annotations in a template to call a page that didn't exist yet. Ain't gonna work. --Old Dickens 23:07, 3 December 2008 (UTC)

Thank you! Excuse my cack-handedness. So copying and pasting another template from lower down the list and over-writing with the code for the desired book doesn't do everything -something else needs to be activated?--AgProv 00:13, 4 December 2008 (UTC)

First you have to have a page "Book:Title/Annotations" (plus square brackets at each end) to write annotations in. Then you can write a shorthand template or copy one like Template:SM-APF and change the title.--Old Dickens 00:53, 4 December 2008 (UTC)


God and Man

Worth copying to here, methinks! A correction to the entry and thanks to the person who knew where I was heading and why my logic was wrong:-

(In Hebrew, while there technically is a difference of one letter between God (אל) and man (אש), this spelling of God is only used in the generic form and not God in the Jewish conception.)


The Soundtrack:-

I remembered Santana did a track to a Latin American beat called Jingo. Sadly, a Google has turned up the information that the words are just nonsense syllables in Spanish or Portuguese, but there is an earlier version from West Africa (Nigeria) where the repeated chant jin-go-lo-ba means "drums of passion". Still a bit too tenuous for an annotation, though, unless somebody out there understands Latin-American music and its African origins better than I do...--AgProv 00:31, 9 January 2011 (CET)

Apparently Jin-go is also a Voodoo god of war, strife and retribution. AgProv 21:20, 8 July 2012 (CEST)
