List of Cities by GDP AFD[edit]

Hello, would you care to comment here - Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/List_of_cities_by_GDP - ? It was you who iinitially brought up the subject. Cheers. THEPROMENADER 06:39, 1 December 2009 (UTC)

updates to Russian IDN ccTLD[edit]

Your changes make claims that are unfounded and impossible. The domain has not been approved, especially not on 10-30, which is impossible, since applications to ICANN were not accepted until Nov. 16. Since due diligence process takes some further time it is impossible to be approved. The registry for the domain has an official statement about the process and only describes the sun rise period and a projection that the domain might be approved early in 2010. Official ICANN estimate of any IDN ccTLD to be active is mid-2010. Please stop adding nonsense to the article that is not supported by references. Kbrose (talk) 16:20, 8 December 2009 (UTC)

Whatever you want to change make it from the current revision, because there are many changes has been done that does not relates to current status. Do not revert the article to very old revision only to remove the one statement. Elk Salmon (talk) 17:53, 8 December 2009 (UTC)
On 30.10.2009 ICAAN has approved the whole idea of non-latin domain. By the time .рф was already applicant. The status of fast track procedure applies to status of .рф domain. Elk Salmon (talk) 17:53, 8 December 2009 (UTC)


In this edit you make a change in the text without updating the reference which is for the previously presented text. I hope you sort it out. __meco (talk) 15:47, 10 April 2010 (UTC)

Line 3 of the diff contain the new reference. Elk Salmon (talk) 16:26, 10 April 2010 (UTC)

Moving pages: Siberian/Amur tiger[edit]

Hi. I'm afraid that the way you moved this material from Siberian to Amur Tiger is technically wrong, and I've reverted it. This is because you have separated the material from its edit history. There is a special process for moving the whole article together with its talk page and edit history.

If the new title is not occupied, you can use the "move" button at the top of the page. However, in this case Amur Tiger was already occupied, so what is needed is to delete that and then move the article. This can only be done by an admin, and so what you do is place the following on the talk page:

== Requested move ==
{{subst:move|NewName}} A short reason for page name change. ~~~~

This automatically posts an entry at WP:Requested moves. Other editors will then contribute to a discussion about the move on the talk page, and if a consensus for the move is achieved after a week or so, an admin will close the discussion and do the move. In a major move like this I think discussion first would have been a good idea, as a major undiscussed change may well generate strong views.

Reopening a discussion[edit]

I want to reopen the discussion Naming_conventions_(Cyrillic)#Example_convention regarding bibliographic references because I think Unicode changes the game somewhat. Since you have participated in the same talk page, I hope you will visit the discussion and give me your opinions. Thanks! LADave (talk) 23:32, 17 June 2011 (UTC)


Hi there, regarding this edit and others like it, please do not use the ESA logo in places like this. It just gets removed by people who seem to have some sort of fixation about removing as many graphics and images as they possibly can from Wikipedia. Instead, please use (or in this case leave alone) the graphic File:Not the esa logo.png which was specially created for the purpose. I have restored several of the articles you edited. Regards, (talk) 03:39, 18 November 2011 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited MTS India, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Russian (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Disambiguation link notification for April 10[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited List of countries with McDonald's franchises, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Pecs (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

Wikipedia Stories Project[edit]


My name is Victor and I'm a storyteller with the Wikimedia Foundation, the non-profit organization that supports Wikipedia. I'm chronicling the inspiring stories of the Wikipedia community around the world, including those from readers, editors, and donors. Stories are absolutely essential for any non-profit to persuade people to support the cause, and we know the vast network of people who make and use Wikipedia have so much to share.

I'm scouring user pages looking for inspiring, motivating and interesting stories of how Wikipedia has affected the lives of people. I'm asking questions like "How has Wikipedia changed your life?", "What's the most interesting story you have about Wikipedia?" and "Has Wikipedia ever surprised you?"

I'm curious why you write about skyscrapers?

Last year, we used the annual fundraiser as a way to show the world who it is who actually writes Wikipedia. We featured editors from Brazil, Ukraine, Argentina, Saudi Arabia, Kenya, India, United States and England. This campaign was a huge success, resulting in the most financially successful fundraising campaign ever. It was also a campaign that stayed true to the spirit of Wikipedia, educating the public that this free top-5 website is created by volunteers like you and I.

This year we want to highlight more Russian-language Wikipedia editors, so I am in the process of planning a trip to Russia to interview editors.

If you or someone you know (or have heard about) has been positively affected by Wikipedia, or have something interesting to say about Wikipedia I'd very much like to hear about it!

Please let me know if you're inclined to take part in the Wikipedia Stories Project, or if you know someone else with whom I should speak.

Of course, if you have any questions or concerns, please ask! I will answer as soon as I can. I apologize for any poor translation of this letter, I am using Google-translate. I hope it makes you laugh :)

Thank you for your time,

Victor Grigas



Меня зовут Виктор, и я рассказчик с Wikimedia Foundation, некоммерческая организация, которая поддерживает Википедию. Я хроник вдохновляющих историй сообщества Википедии по всему миру, в том числе и читателей, редакторов и доноров. Истории совершенно необходимы для любой некоммерческой органицации, чтобы убедить людей поддержывать наш проект, и мы знаем, что у людей, которые строют и используют Википедии есть много, что рассказать!

Я ищу вдохновляющие страницы пользователей, и интересных историй о том, как Википедия влияют на жизнь людей. Я задавал вопросы вроде "Как Википедия изменила Вашу жизнь?", "Какая самая интересная история у Вас есть о Википедии?" и "Википедия ли когда-нибудь Вас удивило?"

В прошлом году мы использовали ежегодный сбор средств как способ показать миру, кто на самом деле пишет Википедия. Мы показывали редакторов из Бразилии, Украины, Аргентины, Саудовской Аравии, Кении, Индии, США и Англии. Этот метод имел огромный успех, в результате чего у нас была наиболее финансово успешная кампании по сбору средств в историе организации. Кроме того, мы остались верны духу Википедии, просвещение общественности, что это бесплатно ТОП-5 Сайт создан добровольцами, как Ви и я.

В этом году мы хотим выделить еще редакторов Википедии на русском языке, так что я нахожусь в процессе планирования поездки в Россию и интервью с редакторами.

Если Википедия положительно повлеяла на Вас или на кого-то из Ваших знакомых, или у Вас есть что-то интересное сказать о Википедии, я бы очень хотел услышать об этом!

Пожалуйста, дайте мне знать, если Ви бы хотели участвовать в проекте Истории Википедии, или если вы знаете кого-то еще, с кем я должен поговорить.

Конечно, если у Вас есть какие-либо вопросы или сомнения, пожалуйста, обращайтесь! Я отвечу, как только смогу. Извините за плохой перевод этого письма, я использую Google-перевод. Я надеюсь, что заставляет вас смеяться :)

Спасибо за Ваше время,

Victor Grigas

Language of edit summaries[edit]

Hi, I noticed your recent edit to Graphics display resolution. Since this is the English Wikipedia, could you use English for your edit summaries, so that they're understandable to other editors as well? You might also want to drop a quick note on the article's talk page to explain your edit, otherwise someone might mistake it for vandalism and revert it. Thanks! Indrek (talk) 17:30, 3 November 2012 (UTC)

Surely. Just lost in place little bit, forgot that i'm looking at Elk Salmon (talk) 17:57, 3 November 2012 (UTC)

Yandex browser[edit]


I noticed you renamed and moved Yandex browser to Yandex.Browser without explaining why. From what I can see, the title "Yandex.Browser" is the company's own style of their product, and using the style on Wikipedia can be seen as promotional. Titles should be as clear, neutral and precise as possible. I think that the original title is the best in this situation. We can still include that "Yandex.Browser" is a stylization in the lead of the article.

Thanks! Michaelzeng7 (talk) 21:30, 23 December 2012 (UTC)

It's proper name, brand name in this case. And fully fits into WP:MOSTM in analogy iPod + CamelCase. And definitely it doesn't look as promotion. Elk Salmon (talk) 01:29, 24 December 2012 (UTC)

Talk:Moscow Metro[edit]

Have you been to Talk:Moscow Metro yet?? There's a question for you. Georgia guy (talk) 21:27, 27 April 2013 (UTC)

Apple's system on chip-devices are not named "Apple".[edit]

So, you should probably not name the article Apple (system on chip) that way. It's a page of Apple's SoCs, it's not about anything named "Apple". -- Henriok (talk) 08:08, 1 July 2013 (UTC)

There are commonly accepted names - Apple A4, A5, A6 etc. And all clarifications are given in brackets. Just like with other SoCs - Snapdragon (system on chip), Atom (system on chip) and not just SoCs. Elk Salmon (talk) 08:18, 1 July 2013 (UTC)

Please comment on Georgia (country) to Georgia move suggestion[edit]

Skyscraper - dubious[edit]

In the article Skyscraper, you added a {{dubious}} to the Equitable Life Building here. However, no talk discussion appears to have been started re: the Equitable Life Building (that I see on the current page or history), and as I did not understand what was dubious, I removed the template. If you want to restore the template, please do so, but start a discussion in talk:Skyscraper. Cheers Jim1138 (talk) 04:58, 20 April 2014 (UTC)
