Should I delete?[edit]

There were virtually no references anywhere in this article when I began working on it, and it still contains far too much unreferenced material. I have looked all over, but I have not found any references for the techincal specifications that are given in the article, among other things. The question is - Should I delete the material or shouldn't I? The article goes into such great detail, yet none of it is referenced, except where I managed to find an official site or two. I hope someone stumbles upon this message, and either helps me find cites for all that content or gives some kind of feedback as to what I should do. --Interchange88Radiation warning symbol.svg 10:19, 31 December 2009 (UTC)

No. Its a very important article and has the potential to develop. Soon there would be some sources available, if not, then we would think. --Extra999 (talk) 20:44, 13 March 2010 (UTC)

Sorry. What I said is no longer relevant, and the article has developed since December, like you said. There is still quite a lot of unreferenced material, but i've worked on that.--Interchange88Radiation warning symbol.svg 21:08, 18 March 2010 (UTC)

Could someone sort out the mangled sentences?[edit]

It looks like parts of the page have been written by people associated with the Russian government, but who don't seem too proficient in English. I would ask these Russian editors to either talk to us to try to clarify the mangled sentences in some of the building sections; or give us the sources so we could straighten this out. This is an important project for your country, so it's in your best interest to try to make the article look good. Apart from that, it has plenty of detail. Pretty good, could be better.

Requested Move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. Editors desiring to contest the closing decision should consider a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: not moved. No support for the proposed move, nor for the alternative proposal below. There does however seem to be a rough consensus to change the redirect currently at Moscow City to point to Moscow, presumably with an appropriate hatnote there. Andrewa (talk) 06:02, 10 November 2012 (UTC)


Moscow International Business CenterMoscow City – The area refers to itself as "Moscow City" (cityfirst.ru) as does the Moscow Times. "Moscow International Business Center" is used as more of a descriptive tag. Russian/German/French Wikipedia all list this under "Moscow City" Keizers (talk) 20:13, 2 November 2012 (UTC)

  • Oppose - Москва-Сити [Moskva Siti] is a Anglification-nickname for property marketing purposes, wheras per Google Books overwhelmingly Moscow City means Город Москва, City of Moscow, and should (i.e. currently it doesn't) redirect to Moscow.
NB: fr/de.wiki don't have the conflict en.wiki has since German Stadt Moskau, French Ville de Moscou naturally don't use the English word "city" to mean not the real Moscow City. In ictu oculi (talk) 00:08, 3 November 2012 (UTC)
In ictu oculi, this does not conform with the Wikipedia guideline WP:COMMONNAME. The overwhelmingly most common name for the complex in English is Moscow City. This is how the complex is described by the RT television network in English, as well as the recent English press release for Mercury City Tower, and as I stated, The Moscow Times.You state that people might search for "Moscow City" intending to find the city of Moscow. As a native English speaker, I can say that "Moscow City" is not at all a phrase that is used to identify Moscow, in the same way as "Mexico City" or "New York City". I don't think we should prevent the article from bearing the common name just because of the rare occurence that someone might search for "Moscow City" to mean Moscow, or the fact that "Moscow City" literally translated back into Russian means "Город Москва", City of Moscow. For those rare cases we can apply a "For" template ("for the City of Moscow, see Moscow") at the top. Keizers (talk) 03:07, 3 November 2012 (UTC)
Please see usage in Google Books since 1990: e.g. Robert W. Orttung, Danielle N. Lussier, Anna Paretskay The Republics and Regions of the Russian Federation 2000 Page 346 "In his campaign platform Gromov spoke of raising the income levels of doctors, teachers, and other public sector workers in Moscow Oblast to those in Moscow City and securing subsidies from Moscow City to help improve the oblast's infrastructure." Does this refer to Москва-Сити or Город Москва? In ictu oculi (talk) 20:21, 3 November 2012 (UTC)
In that book it refers to Город Москва (City of Moscow), I would argue that is their own choice of phraseology and not really standard English. But knowing Moscow well and as a native speaker, certainly if someone said "Moscow City" I would immediately think of the business centre, whereas if referring to the City of Moscow, I would expect to hear "City of Moscow". You have a point with that one example of a book, but are those examples really extensive, and are there really more than the *consistent* references to the business centre as "Moscow City" by the major English-language media of Russia (RT, Moscow Times, their own press releases). Keizers (talk) 01:22, 4 November 2012 (UTC)
Hi, thanks for that answer. Maybe I have a misconception about how WP:AT article titles are meant to work, but if you know Moscow well aren't you disqualified? Shouldn't this be titled for the 99% of readers who don't know Moscow well?
I agree, the capitalization C for city isn't good style, but like it or not, it is common enough to stumble this RM. Ascher The Revolution of 1905: A Short History 2004 "The governor of Moscow City urged some peasants to issue a statement in support of the war.", ABA Journal 1963 "the collegium also has the power to prepare draft legislation which will be introduced before the Soviets of Moscow City" Eastern Europe, Russia and Central Asia 2004 "Boris Gromov, an ally of Moscow City Mayor Yurii Luzhkov," The Territories of the Russian Federation 2012 "A proposal, presented in August by the Governments of Moscow City and Moscow Oblast, provided for the incorporation of large areas of the south-west of Moscow Oblast into the City, including the towns of Vnukovo, Shcherbinka and Troitsk, ..." etc. In ictu oculi (talk) 02:45, 5 November 2012 (UTC)
  • Rename as Moscow City International Business Center. This form gets 13 hits on RT for the last year, see "Moscow City International Business Center" site:rt.com. "Moscow City" can viewed as a shortened version of the full name. I hope that this RM is not decided on the basis of usage in the context of the 1905 Revolution. Kauffner (talk) 16:04, 6 November 2012 (UTC)
  • Oppose: the primary topic for Moscow City should be the city of Moscow, which is much more notable and looked for than the business centre. --RJFF (talk) 21:00, 6 November 2012 (UTC)

Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessaryily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request its removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:

  • http://www.designbuild-network.com/projects/mibc/
    Triggered by \bdesignbuild-network\.com\b on the local blacklist

Yes check.svg Resolved This issue has been resolved, and I have therefore removed the tag, if not already done. No further action is necessary.—cyberbot II NotifyOnline 20:44, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
