Russians was a good articles nominee, but did not meet the good article criteria at the time. There are suggestions below for improving the article. Once these issues have been addressed, the article can be renominated. Editors may also seek a reassessment of the decision if they believe there was a mistake.
This article is within the scope of WikiProject Ethnic groups, a collaborative effort to improve the coverage of articles relating to ethnic groups, nationalities, and other cultural identities on Wikipedia. If you would like to participate, please visit the project page, where you can join the discussion and see a list of open tasks.
State all your objections here before planning to edit and revert. Khazar (talk) 00:16, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
I add people as in case of other etnic groups (for instance Ukrainian). It has 25 people. If there is any question, you can change some people to other. --Glovacki (talk) 06:43, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
I add: Leo Tolstoy, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, Konstantin Tsiolkovsky, Anton Chekhov, Feodor Chaliapin, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, Andrei Sakharov, Lev Yashin, Vladimir Vysotsky. --Glovacki (talk) 07:14, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
That's not relevant. The Ukrainians page is monitored by nationalists who serve no purpose on Wikipedia. Your changes do not benefit the article at all. Khazar (talk) 00:29, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
What do you have against my addition? --Glovacki (talk) 07:26, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
Everything. This edit of yours is unconstructive and serves no purpose to the article. The number of people in the infobox isn't as important as you think. The people represented is what matters. I oppose your change and I'll give you a week to create and establish a consensus. If can't do so, then I'll simply revert. Khazar (talk) 23:43, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
Since you haven't established a consensus, I've reverted your irrelevant edit. Khazar (talk) 17:09, 6 September 2014 (UTC)
Not being of very unusual appearance. Some people thinks that this e.g. excludes Pushkin, as his African ancestry is not usual for Russians even in the modern times and was extremely unusual in 19th century.
Have a good quality picture unquestionably copyright-free.
We should provide a balanced mix of genders, epochs, occupations.
The number of the pictures is limited. 16 is OK, 20 maybe OK, more seems to be excessive.
I am strongly against inclusion of Vladimir Putin as he is a very controversial modern politician who a significant part of our readers consider a criminal. Also is Boris Chertok a household name in the west? According to his Russian wikipage Chertok was born in a Jewish family, is it disqualifies him from the box on an ethnic Russian article?
3 women among 25 people do not look right IMHO. The occupation mix is better IMHO but we have gone from 16 people to 25 is it excessive? Alex Bakharev (talk) 05:35, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
My suggestion for 16 people: Nevsky, Peter the Great, Lomonosov, Suvorov, Mendeleev, Tchaikovsky, Tolstoy, Dostoevsky, Tsvetaeva, Korolyov, Pavlov, Kandinsky, Pavlova, Sikorsky, Gagarin, Netrebko — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk • contribs)
No problems with any of them. Have not checked that we have good copyright free images of the modern people. Other suggestions? Alex Bakharev (talk) 00:27, 13 September 2014 (UTC)
Alexander Popov is a household name and recognized as one of the fathers of the radio. Although Oleg Losev isn't, I purposely put him in because his contributions are tremendous despite being largely unknown.
Suvorov is though to have been 1/4 Armenian. I believe that the general rule should be that someone is at least 1/2 Russian.
The gender gap is even larger with you proposition so I don't see why you're objecting to a problem that you're seeking to escalate.
Finding a non-controversial Russian leader is very hard. Which one isn't filled with controversy?
The ideal size should be 3x5 or 4x4. The only featured article with an infobox about ethnic groups features that style.
