Welcome![edit]

Hello Dƶoxar! Welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions.

This is NOT some automated message...it's from a real person. You can talk to me right now. I noticed you've just joined, and wanted to give you a few tips to get you started. If you have any questions, please talk to us. The tips below should help you to get started. Best of luck! — Mariah-Yulia • Talk to me! 21:33, 18 November 2009 (UTC)

  • You don't need to read anything - anybody can edit; just go to an article and edit it. Be Bold, but please don't put silly stuff in - it will be removed very quickly, and will annoy people.
  • Ask for help. Talk to us live, or edit this page, put {{helpme}} and describe what help you need. Someone will reply very quickly - usually within a few minutes.
  • Edit existing articles, before you make your own. Look at some subjects that you know about, and see if you can make them a bit better. For example, Wikipedia:Cleanup#2009.
  • When you're ready, read about Your first article. It should be about something well-known, and it will need references.

Good luck with editing; please drop me a line some time on my own talk page.

If you are interested in Ukraine-related themes, you may want to check out the Ukraine Portal , particularly the Portal:Ukraine/New article announcements and Portal:Ukraine/Ukraine-related Wikipedia notice board. The New article announcements board is probably the most important and the most attended one. Please don't forget to announce there the new articles you create. Adding both boards to your watchlist is probably a good idea. You can also join WikiProject Ukraine, a tool to help perfect the Ukrainian related articles on the English Wikipedia. We would be glad to have you as a member of WikiProject Ukraine!

Some editing suggestions[edit]

Please read the guidelines for when to mark edits as minor (what's this?). Note that you should not mark an edit as a minor edit when you are adding content to an article. Your additions of Ukranian examples are welcome (thanks!), but they are significant not minor changes.

I suggest that you check the results of your edit using the (Show preview) button before clicking on the (Save page) button. That way you can catch errors before making your edits public, and can avoid having a series of intermediate edits saved in the permanent history of the page.

March 2012[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. It might not have been your intention, but your recent edit removed content from Cherkassy. When removing content, please specify a reason in the edit summary and discuss edits that are likely to be controversial on the article's talk page. If this was a mistake, don't worry; the content has been restored, as you can see from the page history. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia, and if you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. Thank you.--Toddy1 (talk) 19:08, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

Please do not remove content or templates from pages on Wikipedia, as you did to Cherkassy, without giving a valid reason for the removal in the edit summary. Your content removal does not appear constructive and has been reverted. Please make use of the sandbox if you'd like to experiment with test edits. Thank you.--Toddy1 (talk) 20:47, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

Barcelona in Champions league[edit]

Hi. I saw you removed green color for barcelona, but they have already qualified for the next round read here. QED237 (talk) 21:02, 26 November 2013 (UTC)

Oh, somebody was distorted information about Barcelona's quantity of points. Thanks. --Dƶoxar (talk) 21:13, 26 November 2013 (UTC)

/ɦ/ in Ukrainian[edit]

Hello. This consonant is pharyngeal, so it must be linked to Voiced pharyngeal fricative in the consonant table. If you disagree about its place of articulation, first find a source that backs up your claim. Peter238 (talk) 11:50, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

Actually, it's disputable. For instance in Сучасна українська мова: Підручник. ред. О.Д. Пономарів, Київ, 2001, с. 21 this sound is classified as glottal (pharyngeal) and in Pugh, Press. Ukrainian A comprehensive grammar, 1999, p. 23 as just glottal.--Dƶoxar (talk) 18:53, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
Good to know! Thanks. Peter238 (talk) 18:17, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

Featuring your work on Wikipedia's front page: DYKs[edit]

Symbol question.svg Thank you for your recent articles, including Executed Renaissance, which I read with interest. When you create an extensive and well referenced article, you may want to have it featured on Wikipedia's main page in the Did You Know section. Articles included there will be read by thousands of our viewers. To do so, add your article to the list at T:TDYK. Let me know if you need help, Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 22:40, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

WikiProject assessment tags for talk pages[edit]

Replacement filing cabinet.svg Thank you for your recent articles, including Executed Renaissance, which I read with interest. When you create a new article, can you add the WikiProject assessment templates to the talk of that article? See the talk page of the article I mentioned for an example of what I mean. Usually it is very simple, you just add something like {{WikiProject Keyword}} to the article's talk, with keyword replaced by the associated WikiProject (ex. if it's a biography article, you would use WikiProject Biography; if it's a United States article, you would use WikiProject United States, and so on). You do not have to rate the article if you do not want to, others will do it eventually. Those templates are very useful, as they bring the articles to a WikiProject attention, and allow them to start tracking the articles through Wikipedia:Article alerts and other tools. For example, WikiProject Poland relies on such templates to generate listings such as Article Alerts, Popular Pages, Quality and Importance Matrix and the Cleanup Listing. Thanks to them, WikiProject members are more easily able to defend your work from deletion, or simply help try to improve it further. Feel free to ask me any questions if you'd like more information about using those talk page templates. Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 22:40, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

Anatoli Prokopenko[edit]

Hi, I saw your edit on Viktor Prokopenko. I was wondering if you had any information concerning Anatoli Prokopenko. Are you completely certain that they are two different people? Elspamo4 (talk) 20:32, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

I've made this conclusion based on the Prokopenko statistics. No reliable source I've seen proves that he has worked with Qatar, so if some Anatoliy Prokopenko has coached the team he must be the different person. Although it might be wrong conclusion, but anyway we need some reliable proves that exactly he was a coach of the Qatar team.--Dƶoxar (talk) 08:05, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

Ahatanhel Krymsky[edit]

Please note that there is a broad consensus that Kiev is used in the English Wikipedia, and not Kyiv. This consensus has been documented at Talk:Kiev and even has a dedicated page. Please do not change the spelling to non-consensus version. Thank you for understanding.--Ymblanter (talk) 19:58, 19 October 2014 (UTC)

Actually, I see a consensus about the name of the article about Kyiv, not about the common use of the city name in the English Wikipedia. Could you give me a limk to this concrete consensus you wrote above? --Dƶoxar (talk) 20:05, 19 October 2014 (UTC)
My reading of the consensus is that the name of the city in English is Kiev, and that Kyiv is not English.--Ymblanter (talk) 20:07, 19 October 2014 (UTC)
Yes, this is your reading. But e.g. Oxford dictionary and a lot of other authoritative linguistic literature concerning English vocabulary states that Kyiv is an alternate version of Kiev, and it's OK to use it in standart English language. The article had been written with use of Kyiv version, later some anonimous user has changed it to Kiev. I consider this change as unreasonable, so I have moved it back. Where is a problem of this edit? There is no rule limiting use if Kyiv in English Wikipedia.--Dƶoxar (talk) 20:14, 19 October 2014 (UTC)
Ok, I ill take it to the WikiProject. Edit warring is nopt really good, given that you have a record of a copyright violation.--Ymblanter (talk) 20:33, 19 October 2014 (UTC)
