I try to clean up pages that do not flow very well in the English language (have obvious Lithuanian grammar structure) and have lackluster information and misused or not enough sources. Whenever I am able, I add sources from quality books also.

Discussions regarding Lithuania

Add here links to pages where discussions are taking place. Add some comment on what the issue is.

  1. Denial of Soviet occupation has been nominated for deletion, discussion - Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Denial of Soviet occupation ---- Staberinde 13:29, 27 September 2007 (UTC)[reply]
  2. Help is needed at Red army crimes in Lithuania. A Lithuanian editor perceives any criticism of the article and its content (it is undergoing AfD) as motivated by Red Army sympathies/bias. His personal attacks and struggles with English and WP policies and procedures have resulted in edit warring and much discord. Maybe someone with a Lithuanian background can mediate?
    Jim Dunning | talk 05:12, 1 July 2007 (UTC)[reply]
    1. The article was deleted following Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Red army crimes in Lithuania.-- Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus | talk  18:31, 1 September 2007 (UTC)[reply]

  1. Tips for Lithuanian editor


The following sources are available from subscription databanks for the time periods indicated. The specific format of material varies between citation, abstract, and full text format. If anyone wishes to obtain information from these sources, please send me an e-mail indicating your own e-mail address and either the specific subject of interest, or the title and dates of the sources of interest, and I will forward what I can find. John Carter (talk) 18:38, 13 February 2011 (UTC)[reply]

  1. A&G Information Services (1999-2006)


A simple yet comprehensive tutorial would help a lot: I.E. - inline, general references

  1. Template for book citation: ((cite book))
  2. Template for website citation: ((cite web))
  3. Inline citation: Wikipedia:Inline Citation
  4. Referencing with Footnotes


  1. Most images are located on Commons.
  2. Starting point for Lithuania-related images on commons: Category:Lithuania
  3. For images on English Wikipedia, try this search.
  4. Some good images are on Lithuanian wiki. Try looking there, but those images most likely will have to re-uploaded to commons.
  5. If there is no image you want try Look for creative commons images. However, only Attribution License & Attribution-ShareAlike License are acceptable on Wikipedia. When uploading, don't forget to identify flickr users who took the pic!
    1. Don't get confussed because Flickr also has something it calls "public image." That is not the same as copyright status.


Here are some Wikipedia conventions:

  1. For main articles use this template: ((main|ARTICLE NAME))
  2. For related topics use this template: ((see also|ARTICLE NAME))
  3. Add a non-breaking space (   ) between a unit and the value (e.g. 25 [[kilometre|km]] renders as 25 km)
  4. Use − for negative numbers
  5. Wikify articles WP:WIKIFY

Going through WP:WSS ensures a consistent naming format and that the templates are listed the correct places. Both things help the stub sorters tremendously in their work. Thanks for your understanding.

Category tree

Main article Wikipedia:Categorization

The category tree is quite simple - you might explore it through category:Lithuania and its subcategories and sub sub categories. I've made some changes, to make it similar to other countries categories. IMO this is about enough, just some explanation is needed, and I might even write it in some time. They're quite easy to create - no request is needed.

Basic principle is to identify category properly - geography, history, education and so on. Then look into subcategories - maybe there is more precise category, not so general doe example Vytautas Magnus University should fit into category:Education in Lithuania, but more precise would be category:Universities in Lithuania, and also category:Education in Kaunas. category:History of Kaunas is also suitable for this article.

Multiple categories also can be used, where appropriate - for example Kūčios could be in category:Lithuanian cuisine (if section about food would be expanded) and category:Lithuanian traditions.

A bit more complicated is category:Lithuanian people - the principle is, that most of them go via category:Lithuanian people by occupation to precise occupation, for example category:Lithuanian architects. There are also a few subcategories - for example category:Lithuanian writers has subcategories category:Lithuanian poets and category:Lithuanian journalists.

Incomplete articles shoud be marked as an appropriate stub.
