Nursultan_Nazarbayev webpage also vandalised - needs freezing[edit]

the page on the president of Kazakhstan has also been vandalised and needs to be frozen.

Someone thinks its cute to put a picture of Cohen where the president should be.

Location maps available for infoboxes of European countries[edit]

On the WikiProject Countries talk page, the section Location Maps for European countries had shown new maps created by David Liuzzo, that are available for the countries of the European continent, and for countries of the European Union exist in two versions. From November 16, 2006 till January 31, 2007, a poll had tried to find a consensus for usage of 'old' or of which and where 'new' version maps. Please note that since January 1, 2007 all new maps became updated by David Liuzzo (including a world locator, enlarged cut-out for small countries) and as of February 4, 2007 the restricted licence that had jeopardized their availability on Wikimedia Commons, became more free. At its closing, 25 people had spoken in favor of either of the two presented usages of new versions but neither version had reached a consensus (12 and 13), and 18 had preferred old maps.
As this outcome cannot justify reverting of new maps that had become used for some countries, seconds before February 5, 2007 a survey started that will be closed soon at February 20, 2007 23:59:59. It should establish two things: Please read the discussion (also in other sections α, β, γ, δ, ε, ζ, η, θ) and in particular the arguments offered by the forementioned poll, while realizing some comments to have been made prior to updating the maps, and all prior to modifying the licences, before carefully reading the presentation of the currently open survey. You are invited to only then finally make up your mind and vote for only one option.
There mustnot be 'oppose' votes; if none of the options would be appreciated, you could vote for the option you might with some effort find least difficult to live with - rather like elections only allowing to vote for one of several candidates. Obviously, you are most welcome to leave a brief argumentation with your vote. Kind regards. — SomeHuman 00:52 19 February 2007 (UTC)

"Imbricating"[edit]

The Turkic people began imbricating on the Iranians starting at least in the 5th century AD.

"Imbricating?" I believe a more appropriate and more widely understood verb would be encroaching. Sca (talk) 20:43, 19 September 2011 (UTC)

Probably, but imbricate is a real word (it was added here), and not really synonymous with encroach.
However, the passage has removed by now – seems excessive to me, it provides relevant information without which the passage from Iranian to Turkic is overly unmediated, and even if the use of the rare word that was subsequently replaced adds to the copyvio suspicion, the part in question should be easy to rephrase and is quite short and trivial anyway. --Florian Blaschke (talk) 03:59, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

Independence[edit]

An agreement with NATO and Ukraine, Georgia, Azerbaijan and Armenia – the Individual Partnership Action Plan – was signed on 31 January 2006. Subsequent signees have been Moldova, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Montenegro. This sentence has been removed. It has nothing to do with Kazakhstan! --Stonepillar (talk) 16:29, 24 April 2014 (UTC)

Name of country[edit]

How can changing from Kazakhstan to "Kazakh Yeli", better reflect the diverse population of the country or attract greater foreign investment? I would be interested in some explanation for what seems a highly improbable story.Royalcourtier (talk) 07:25, 1 June 2014 (UTC)
