Cossacks?[edit]

Albazinians are not Cossacks. They are just Orthodox Chinese of maybe-Cossack origin. No need to include them into tha same group with Don, Kuban and other Cossacks.--133.41.84.206 07:36, 11 August 2007 (UTC)

Yes, I agree. The research i've done online doesn't mention them as Cossacks in particular, just former Russian soldiers. Ageofe 19:37, 11 August 2007 (UTC)

Neutrality[edit]

I didn't see many Neutrality problems to begin with but I did some minor editing to erase what could have been a problem. Should we remove the tag? Ageofe 19:37, 11 August 2007 (UTC)

After excluding Albazinians from Cossacks' category and template. They are not "Chinese cossacks" :-)--202.249.212.144 08:10, 12 August 2007 (UTC)

There are no neutrality concerns, as far as I can see. The article does not identify the Albazinians as modern-day Cossacks, although they are mentioned in the Cossack-related referenced books as such. I don't really care about the category and template, but it may be worth pointing out that neither the category nor template is supposed to list only modern-day Cossacks. Their purpose is to bring together a range of Cossack-related topics. There is no doubt that this article qualifies as Cossack-related. --Ghirla-трёп- 19:27, 12 August 2007 (UTC)
Seconded. Currently the category:Cossacks contains quite various topics related to Cossacks. e.g., shashka. Categories are navigation tools, to quickly browse a topic. When the number of articles in a category becomes too large, some enthusiasts may spawn subcategpries, such as category:Military organization of Cossacks or category:Cossack people or smth. else. `'Míkka 18:59, 13 August 2007 (UTC)
Couldnt resist temptation and created one subcat :-). `'Míkka 19:12, 13 August 2007 (UTC)

Its looks like including all Ukranians to Cossacks category only because some of them are the offsprings of the Cossacks. Albazinians are not Cossacks in any way.--Alex Kov 14:49, 23 August 2007 (UTC)

Nobody claims they are. But they were. The template is not supposed to confine itself to the modern state of affairs. --Ghirla-трёп- 11:59, 31 August 2007 (UTC)
