Just looking at the most recent changes.
1) Roslavetz was ethnically Ukrainian. You have removed this and the fact that the place where he was born was in Chernihiv province which is currently in Ukraine.
2) You have changed the link to his article in the Ukrainian Wikipedia by changing his name. As a result it no longer links to his ARTICLE.
3) You have removed all vestigages of his Ukrainian ethnicity, and Ukrainian identity, and removed the articles from Ukrainian sources.
To me it does not seems to be a very scholarly manner of editing.
Ditto Bandurist (talk) 23:38, 20 November 2008 (UTC) Before making major changes to the article it would be nice to discuss the changes on the talk page. Bandurist (talk) 04:31, 21 November 2008 (UTC)
The Ukrainian form of name Mykola Roslavets is not used by English speakers; nor was it used on Roslavets's publications during his lifetime. The only apparent justification for use if this form is the post facto argument that he was born in what is now Ukraine, but what for virtually all of his working life was the Soviet Union. There is no evidence that he himself used the form Mykola. All Western reference books, recordings etc. use the form Nikolai Andreyevich; this includes all the references, except for those published in Ukraine, which are given in the article. To give WP readers the idea that his name was 'Mykola' is therefore misleading. The article was originally written using the name 'Nikolai' and was moved without explanation or justification. Encyclopaedic integrity would seem to require a move back to Nikolai. --Smerus (talk) 08:20, 21 November 2008 (UTC)
You have removed materials regarding Roslavets's professorship and directorship of the Kharkiv conservatory (Kharkiv Music Institute) from 1921-23 and his position as the overseerer of the artistic education section in the Ministry of the Ukrainian SSR. Is there a reason?
- Thank you for these comments. This information was not removed by me; in fact I added the information about R. being director of the Kharkov conservatory to the article as I then found it. I don't have any information about R's work in the ministry of the Ukranian SSR, or about his settings of Shevchenko, so I suggest that you add this material With best regards, --Smerus (talk) 19:49, 21 November 2008 (UTC)
Despite the flaws that people have identified (and others besides), this is a richly informative article. Another matter calling for clarification is the question of how someone born in 1881 could be working as a clerk in the 1880s. I've also re-written a couple of awkward sentences, but much of the article still shows its origins as the work of a non-native writer.
Could someone please make the following in the Revival section comprehensible (looks like a machine translation of something): "After that, dismissal by Lobanova from the Moscow conservatory was attempted as well as deprivation of her scientific degree and rights for teaching; soon, they tried to use an application of retaliatory psychiatry with the dissident diagnosis against Lobanova".
