Ukraine portal

If you are interested in Ukraine-related themes, you may want to check out the Ukraine Portal, particularly the Portal:Ukraine/New article announcements and Portal:Ukraine/Ukraine-related Wikipedia notice board. The New article announcements board is probably the most important and the most attended one. Please don't forget to anounce there the new articles you create. Adding both boards to your watchlist is probably a good idea.

Finally, in case you are interested, similar boards exist at Russia portal as many editors contribute to topics related to both countries. The respective boards there are: Portal:Russia/New article announcements and Portal:Russia/Russia-related Wikipedia notice board. Of course there are also many other portals at Wikipedia or you may just get right into editing.

Hey there...

I am going through a number of images that have some minor licensing issues. I came across Image:Tor-bor2.jpg which you uploaded. The licensing on this image is not complete as it was uploaded many years ago.

License tagging for Image:Cetera.jpg

Thanks for uploading Image:Cetera.jpg. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information; to add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia.

For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 07:05, 2 December 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

What you are doing is violation Wikipedia:Biographies of living persons policy, please read it.
If you label some author (e.g. Vadim Kozhinov) as Judaeo-Masonic conspiracy theorist or proponent of blood libel, you shoud support this by references to this particular author works, not to the articles by some third person.
You probably did not read Reznik's article at all, because if you read it, you would notice that Sokolov is name of investigator, not the Czech town. [1]DonaldDuck (talk) 05:59, 28 December 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

File copyright problem with File:Tor-bor2.jpg

File Copyright problem

Thank you for uploading File:Tor-bor2.jpg. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can determine the license and the source of the file. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description page.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their license and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation. ▫ JohnnyMrNinja 06:56, 25 March 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi, Lute88.

Thanks for your assistance. If it is a lute community consensus that the gittern is not related to chitarra Italiana then this assertion needs to be discussed and referenced with verifiable historic source material.

This is incorrect POV. Please see the following articles in editions of the Lute Society Journal;

Notes on the Cittern, Gittern and Guitar in 16th and 17th century England , John Ward, Vol.21 (1979-81)
The 17th century Gittern and the Englisch Zitterlein, Donald Gill, Vol.35 (1995)

The Tunings of the Four-Course French Cittern and of the Four-Course Guitar in the 16th century, Charles Dobson, Ephraim Segerman and James Tyler, Vol.16 (1974)
Also useful - Fourteenth Century Instruments and Tunings: A Treatise by Jean Vaillant?, Christopher Page, Galpin Society Journal, Vol.33, March 1980.
You will find articles in the FoMRHI quarterly journal on a number of issues related to tuning, string materials and manufacture and a website assisting you to obtain copies.
The article in Grove is no doubt useful as a limited introduction to the subject, but (probably by virtue of necessity) somewhat brief and lacks in depth analysis. As far as I am aware it does not support the claim the gittern is not related to it's contemporary forms of chitarra, guitarre, guitarra, etc..

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Mykola Shmatko. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Please be particularly aware that Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing.

Grigory Petrovsky, holodomor

Regarding you're reversion, the current wording has to go one way or another; "as well as one of organizers of the genocidal 1932-33 famine in Ukraine."... I don't care if this is true or not, what I do know is that this is not as clear cut as its made out to be. Honestly, before the Ukrainian revolution the fourth largest party (the Communists, which has now been illegalised) opposed such a view and the Party of Regions (which has collapsed because, if we are to generalise, of corruption) didn't support such a position either. And this is just in Ukraine, the historical community is not united either, and the Russians neither seems to support this position (since a large chunk of them also died during the Soviet famine of 1932–33), arguing that it was not only Ukrainians who died, and that the famine was nondiscriminatory in its evil ... As I said, I don't care if this is true or not (or if you believe its true; I don't have a particular position on this issue), but the current wording has to be changed or the sentenced removed for the sake of following Wikipedia's policy of neutrality. --TIAYN (talk) 23:54, 15 June 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Israel vs Israël

You reverted my edit w/o any explanation. I'm sorry but I would like one as I disagree with this revert. The sentence says "in French, every country needs an article except Israe/ël". It means every name of country needs an article except one and this one, the one w/o article, is "Israël" as we're talking from a french name, not of the english corresponding name. You understood as if the sentence was " in French, every country needs an article except the one we, english speaking people, call "Israel" but this is not what is written.

Erase everything, don't stop in the middle of the way. If you don't have anything more productive to do, I suggest you either to wake up or to go back to your semi-retirement as you seem to be still unable to understand simple facts like making a name match with the rest of the sentence.

Necessary qualifiers

@Lute 88: Wrong! It's just WP: I don't like it. You may write "Socrates has said that...", but not "George Soros has said that...". If you don't like the fact that he is a businessman, propose an other way to introduce him. If you don't have one, I'll reinstate my edit.

Soros needs no "introduction", especially insinuating anything. He also has HIS OWN wiki-article, which introduces him nicely.--Lute88 (talk) 17:09, 22 August 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]


@Lute 88: Wrong again! You are the one who is making insinuations, and not particularly pleasant ones at that. Do you have anything against American businessmen? Myriads of people have a wki-article, that doesn't mean no introduction is necessary. For instance, which is better "Joachim Gauck has said..." or "Johachim Gauck, Germany's President has said..."? Besides, my introduction is taken word for word from "HIS OWN wiki-article, which introduces him nicely". So? Againstdisinformation (talk) 17:46, 22 August 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Rude reversals

Well, you could at least have the courtesy to inform me when you revert two of my edits. Your insistence to state that Anna Palitkovska was murdered on Putin's birthday would be laughable if it was not a tragic event.

Fyodorov

Hi, Lute88. I've been asked to review the situation around the Ivan Fyodorov (printer) article, in which you are involved. While undoing other people's edits is often a part of normal editing process, it is only considered acceptable behavior when it is done with an explanation of reasons and in a civil manner. This first edit of yours technically meets these criteria (although one could wish that you elaborated on your reasoning in a little more detail), but this other one is absolutely unacceptable and is actually the reason which prompted that user to seek administrative input. When your edit is undone by more than one person, the proper course of action is to take the discussion to the talk page, not to resort to subtly worded passive-aggressive comments.

I am restoring the article to its July version. You are very welcome to start a discussion on the article's talk page, where you can explain the reasons you believe the current wording is unacceptable. I will also prompt the other party that they will need to participate in that discussion if the issue is to be resolved. Before posting anything, please also reacquaint yourself with the civility guidelines, so you are absolutely sure which kinds of comments are acceptable and which are not. I'm putting this article on my watchlist but am hoping that no further administrative intervention will be necessary.—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); September 25, 2015; 13:25 (UTC)

Please do not mislead in edit summaries, and refrain from disruptive editing practises such as deleting entire sections from articles on nationalist's grounds. On 10:10, 22 April 2016‎ you removed historical background with numerous book citations from Antisemitism in Ukraine (-5,707)‎. You falsely claimed that the section was a WP:POVFORK, even though such FORK could not exist, because there's no other article in Wikipedia devoted to this subject. Book citations from reputable historians are not WP:POV. Please do not try to force me to have to spend considerable amount of my time writing a report about such behaviour. Please respond to my post at Talk:Antisemitism in Ukraine#22 April 2016 new section with your concerns.

Ukrainian literature

Hello. According to the first line of the lead of the article "Ukrainian literature is literature written in the Ukrainian language", which automatically excludes everything that was written before the 18th century, or if we stretch it a bit the middle of the 17th century, because before then there was no Ukrainian language. The Ukrainian language evolved slowly, over a period of 300 or so years, from the southern dialect of the Ruthenian language, with the other main dialects of that language becoming the Belarusian and Rusyn languages. Meaning that whatever was written during the time of the Kievan Rus' most definitely wasn't written in the Ukrainian language, and thus doesn't belong in the article. - Tom | Thomas.W talk 16:57, 29 September 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Yes, but those articles don't explicitly limit the scope of the article to literature in a single language, as Ukrainian literature does (and I'm not trying to exclude things that predate the country of Ukraine, only things that predate the Ukrainian language). Your edit summary in the second revert, pointing to WP:REDFLAG, was utterly ridiculous, BTW, there's absolutely no "red flag" in what I removed, and everything I did was explained in my edit summaries. - Tom | Thomas.W talk 17:16, 29 September 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
