The article should include a brief summary of the rouble's history and its current position in regard to other currencies. The New York Times reports that "the ruble remains the world’s second-most undervalued major currency, behind only the Chinese yuan". In its current embryonic state, the article fails to serve our readers. --Ghirla-трёп- 13:55, 8 August 2007 (UTC)
Fair use rationale for Image:Russia5000rubles03front.jpg
Image:Russia5000rubles03front.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.
Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.
If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Ivan The Terrible
Sorry for earlier messages, Ivan the terrible was, indeed, represented on the earlier Kopeks. This, however, is an incomplete picture, and circa 1722, he was replaced with Saint George.
Do not mix "kopecks" and "kopeks" in the same article. This just causes lots of confusion. I don't even know what's the "legal" spelling of this; but no matter what the spelling is, it should be unified. -andy 184.108.40.206 (talk) 05:01, 14 January 2010 (UTC)
- I agree it should be consitent. In terms of a corrrect spelling, the Russian use the Cyrilllic alphabet so tranliteration into Roman text is what is set by convention. Don't even get me started on "Ruble" being used instead of "Rouble". Although it has become poplular in recent years "Ruble" still looks vulgar and illiterate to vme and has nothing to do with regional spelling variations. Dainamo (talk) 08:44, 14 January 2010 (UTC)
Hello, I think that following external link should be reinserted:
I think that the link is useful because:
- link contains a lot of photos with different Rubles and Kopeykas relevant to the article.
- photos cannot be integrated into the Wikipedia article due to large amount of images.
- the external site has educational purposes only (not commercial, without advertisement) and contains neutral and accurate material that is relevant to the article.
- If you continue to spam Wikipedia with links to your site, you will be blocked. OhNoitsJamie Talk 22:14, 20 January 2010 (UTC)
- Ok. I understand you. I try to discuss it, as you wrote to my talk. I added few references to my site in articles where the references are relevant. This article (Ruble & Kopek) has no photos of Rubles and Kopeykas. However, Ruble & Kopek are not abstraction - it's something what people can see (there are thousands different Rubles and Kopeykas). This article has just one external link which is in Russian (I hope that most English reading people can read in Russian as well as in English ). I would say that my reference could be unnecessary (or spam) in Russian version of the article because that article has much more photos and a lot of similar external links in relevant language. Why does external link exist in Wikipedia if they are banned in such cases as this article? I think that my 10 references (in relevant places) was not really spam attack to Wikipedia. Or does the reason is because the site is my ? I hope administrators should make unbiased decisions.
