September 2008[edit]

Nuvola apps personal.png You should wait for others to write an article about subjects in which you are personally involved, as you did at Kiril Simeonovski. This applies to articles about you, your achievements, your band, your business, your publications, your website, your relatives, and any other possible conflict of interest.

Creating an article about yourself is strongly discouraged. If you create such an article, it might be listed on articles for deletion. Deletion is not certain, but many feel strongly that you should not start articles about yourself. This is because independent creation encourages independent validation of both significance and verifiability. All edits to articles must conform to Wikipedia:No original research, Wikipedia:Neutral point of view, and Wikipedia:Verifiability.

If you are not "notable" under Wikipedia guidelines, creating an article about yourself may violate the policy that Wikipedia is not a personal webspace provider and would thus qualify for speedy deletion. If your achievements, etc., are verifiable and genuinely notable, and thus suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia, someone else will probably create an article about you sooner or later. (See Wikipedia:Wikipedians with articles.) Thank you. Ioeth (talk contribs friendly) 20:25, 25 September 2008 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:Котов велемајстор.jpg)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:Котов велемајстор.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 05:12, 7 February 2009 (UTC)

Lithuania–Romania relations[edit]

Can you help find sources for Lithuania–Romania relations? --Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) (talk) 22:53, 14 July 2009 (UTC)

Nabokov[edit]

Your comments would be welcome here. -- Hoary (talk) 00:43, 5 October 2009 (UTC)

Sneaky change?[edit]

Check the talk page. The change was discussed (here) and had consensus. Please assume good faith. If you are unable to do so, please refrain from further posting on my talk page. Thanks. Yworo (talk) 19:14, 26 November 2009 (UTC)

Clearly I cannot patrol all biographical articles. I apply the rules consistently to the articles which I do edit. More than that is inappropriate to ask of me. Simply take matters into your own hands where you find articles which do not comply with the guidelines. Yworo (talk) 20:36, 26 November 2009 (UTC)
Not only did I see the talk page of the article, Vladimir Nabokov, I posted a comment on the talk page, a comment to which you did not respond or even, apparently, bother to read. Yworo (talk) 21:45, 26 November 2009 (UTC)

Edit warring[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Vladimir Nabokov. Note that the three-revert rule prohibits making more than three reversions on a single page within a 24-hour period. Additionally, users who perform several reversions in content disputes may be blocked for edit warring even if they do not technically violate the three-revert rule. When in dispute with another editor you should first try to discuss controversial changes to work towards wording and content that gains a consensus among editors. Should that prove unsuccessful, you are encouraged to seek dispute resolution, and in some cases it may be appropriate to request page protection. Please stop the disruption, otherwise you may be blocked from editing. Yworo (talk) 20:47, 26 November 2009 (UTC)

Macedonian Wikipedia[edit]

Hi, David. We've already reached 40,000 articles, and it was mentioned on the talkpage of the tmplate. As I can see, nobody have seen it. Could you please, add a link in the tier in the right order? Best regards.--Kiril Simeonovski (talk) 14:06, 18 April 2010 (UTC)

The Macedonian Wikipedia is composed primarily of stubs and placeholders. We omit such Wikipedias. —David Levy 14:18, 18 April 2010 (UTC)
How did you conclude it? Is it based on some criterias? I asked for establishing criterias (see here), but nobody responded.--Kiril Simeonovski (talk) 14:24, 18 April 2010 (UTC)
It appears that I explained the procedure (entailing checking 50 random articles) to you in the past. We haven't established a specific numerical cutoff because we're dealing with clear-cut cases that wouldn't approach it (no offense intended). —David Levy 14:31, 18 April 2010 (UTC)
Can you make a more specific explanation of your outcome, and contrast it with the standard criterias for checking random articles? It is common to see stubs, and placeholders, but I also check articles with long copy also.--Kiril Simeonovski (talk) 14:45, 18 April 2010 (UTC)
I'm not entirely clear on what you're asking me to explain. Yes, there are some good articles, but they comprise a small percentage. —David Levy 15:37, 18 April 2010 (UTC)
Could you at least tell me the criterias for random checking the articles? I suppose that you use some kind of guide to use it. You said a small percentage. You agreed to add a link with Wikipedia in Basque, having 6 of 50 random non-stub articles. Using the definition for stubs, we have app. 10 of 50 non-stub articles. If you make just once, I propose to you to make the test more times, and to analyze the outcomes. The biggest problem are the date placeholders, but we're working hard to fix it. Your first respond was alike you were noted the suggestion from the user's accusation against Macedonian Wikipedia.--Kiril Simeonovski (talk) 15:45, 18 April 2010 (UTC)

Re:Emmanuel Lasker[edit]

As you can see, very few people are listed simply as Soviet people and mostly because they don't' fit into any of the sub categories. Many present day Russian people who were Soviet citizens when that country existed are not listed as Soviet people, particularly if they do no fit into any of the Soviet people by occupation sub categories. And Lasker himself, despite attaining citizenship only stayed for a scant two years before leaving the country for good.

Instead of reverting Category:Soviet people, how about inserting Category:German immigrants to the Soviet Union instead ? I will do that anyway and if you have any further objections please respond in my talk page. If you still think that Category:Soviet people should be re-inserted than feel free to do it without responding to my talk page. Thanks. Tec15 (talk) 06:26, 10 September 2010 (UTC)

39th Chess Olympiad[edit]

Thanks for the expansion but I think the sentence "In the first round, the Yemen team refused to play against Israel. Each of the four Israeli players was thus awarded a technical victory." needs a citation. Could you do it? --BorgQueen (talk) 16:37, 4 October 2010 (UTC)

The source says: "Yemen has sacked the country's chess team and members of the governing body after its players competed against Israel at a tournament in Belarus. The Yemeni Sports minister, Hamud Mohammed Ubad, took the unusual decision after players ignored instructions to pull out if drawn against Israel, which is widely criticised in the Middle East for its policies towards the Palestinians." It doesn't say anything about Israeli players being awarded a technical victory. Am I missing something? --BorgQueen (talk) 16:50, 4 October 2010 (UTC)
Fine, thanks. One last thing - the source says the tournament was in Belarus, and our article says it was in Khanty-Mansiysk, Russia. Which one would be correct? --BorgQueen (talk) 17:06, 4 October 2010 (UTC)
Well, then the source cannot be used for the 39th Chess Olympiad, since it's not what it is talking about. Do you have a more relevant source? It does not have to be in English. --BorgQueen (talk) 17:16, 4 October 2010 (UTC)
Good enough, please insert the ref while I am posting the article. :) --BorgQueen (talk) 17:27, 4 October 2010 (UTC)

  • Oh, and no problem! I meant to go back and check the article after that, but got side-tracked. You seem to have covered it well, however. TFOWR 15:19, 11 October 2010 (UTC)
It wasn't cited and disputed by a user who removed it and my first insight was he really did not attain British citizenship. But, since you mention his CV and after the reference citing his British nationality was inserted, I did even change it in the lead sentence. Best regards.--Kiril Simeonovski (talk) 15:24, 11 October 2010 (UTC)

Interview at Wikimania 2011[edit]

Hi Kiril. My name is Matthew Roth and I'm a Storyteller at the Wikimedia Foundation. We're exploring new ways to explain why Wikipedia is so special and we’ve started a Wikipedia Stories Project, where we’re chronicling the inspiring stories of the Wikipedia community, especially editors and active contributors in the movement like you. I'll be traveling to Wikimania next month to collect stories for our 2011 Fundraiser. While there I'd love the chance to meet with you and hear your thoughts about Wikipedia. We’ll have a schedule of available times for you to sign up if you’re interested, but right now, we’d like to make the initial contact to gauge your interest. Please let me know by emailing me at mroth@wikimedia.org or responding on my talk page. Thank you, Matthew (wmf) (talk) 23:55, 15 July 2011 (UTC)

In respect of your edits on English People you might want to read up on WP:BRD ----Snowded TALK 12:52, 26 March 2013 (UTC)

Thanks. It was pretty unusual to me that there is no information about the related groups as something that is often included in the infobox about ethnic groups. If you think that the definition of the English people is broad enough to prevent mentioning only those ethnic groups who speak the most closely related languages, then it's fine to me.

Re: interwiki links[edit]

I don't really understand it myself, but I have noticed in the past that people tend to get annoyed when the number of wikis linked there gets to be rather large, even if they are relatively high-quality wikis (ie. not 90% bot-created articles). I think it would probably be best to propose it on Template talk:Wikipedia languages and see if anyone has any comments on it before I do that. Thingg 18:08, 8 October 2013 (UTC)

Yeeah I see your point. Heh, I didn't really look at the numbers closely before. To be honest, personally I'm all for including lots of languages there even if it makes the template kind of long because I feel that having a direct link to them from the main page of the English Wikipedia would be a very good thing for those smaller wikis because of the massive amount of traffic the English wiki gets from people who aren't native speakers but may not be aware that there is a wiki in their native language. Evidently that is not the majority opinion though... Anyways, it's not a big deal to me either way. I don't have time to look at it now, but this weekend I'll try to look through the list of wikis and see where a good cut-off would be for new categories, like may 75000 for the lowest or something (or if you want to, you're more than welcome to; I've been pretty busy off-wiki lately). I'll let you know when I make the suggestion on the template talk page. Cheers. Thingg 23:16, 10 October 2013 (UTC)

Your recent editing history shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

To avoid being blocked, instead of reverting please consider using the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. See BRD for how this is done. You can post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection. --Taivo (talk) 23:52, 14 October 2013 (UTC)

In a 2007 arbitration case, administrators were given the power to impose discretionary sanctions on any user editing Balkans-related articles in a disruptive way.

Formal mediation has been requested[edit]

The Mediation Committee has received a request for formal mediation of the dispute relating to "Groundless revert of an edit to tweak the content in the article's infobox". As an editor concerned in this dispute, you are invited to participate in the mediation. Mediation is a voluntary process which resolves a dispute over article content by facilitation, consensus-building, and compromise among the involved editors. After reviewing the request page, the formal mediation policy, and the guide to formal mediation, please indicate in the "party agreement" section whether you agree to participate. Because requests must be responded to by the Mediation Committee within seven days, please respond to the request by 16 November 2013.

Discussion relating to the mediation request is welcome at the case talk page. Thank you.

Fischer's US citizenship[edit]

That Fischer didn't lose his US citizenship is relatively easy to research and also documented in a WP article. So what gives with this? Ihardlythinkso (talk) 14:09, 25 November 2013 (UTC)

My edit was reverted but then I realised the difference and decided to agree with the reasoning beyond it. I came up with the idea to insert that category mostly because it includes the article List of former United States citizens who relinquished their nationality, which itself includes Fischer as one who relinquished his US citizenship and thereby is indirectly classified under the same category.--Kiril Simeonovski (talk) 14:16, 25 November 2013 (UTC)
Do you really think it was a matter of "reasoning" and not simple reading?! (The category name you applied was: "People who lost United States citizenship".) Ihardlythinkso (talk) 14:35, 25 November 2013 (UTC)
Well, I wasn't able to find a category saying something like "people who denounced their US citizenship" and then the results of my search linked me to that category. It's not radically different at all since it includes a list of people (where Fischer is mentioned) who relinquished their US citizenship. Hence, the term "lost" in this context probably means to lose the citizenship anyway, regardless if the person denounced it or the authorities decided to take it away.--Kiril Simeonovski (talk) 14:41, 25 November 2013 (UTC)
The article is generally in a good shape with slight pushes over some things that can be easily changed to make it more neutral presenting the facts in a more modest way. I've already made some technical changes in the intro and will next digest the article's body. It looks promising to me for a future good article, especially when having a such long queue of sources and citations.--Kiril Simeonovski (talk) 14:21, 25 November 2013 (UTC)

You can post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection. --Taivo (talk) 18:43, 4 December 2013 (UTC)

Edit warring at Serbo-Croatian[edit]

Stop icon with clock
You have been blocked from editing for a period of 48 hours for edit warring. Once the block has expired, you are welcome to make useful contributions. If you think there are good reasons why you should be unblocked, you may appeal this block by adding the following text below this notice: {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}}. However, you should read the guide to appealing blocks first.

During a dispute, you should first try to discuss controversial changes and seek consensus. If that proves unsuccessful, you are encouraged to seek dispute resolution, and in some cases it may be appropriate to request page protection.

The full report of this case is at WP:AN3#User:Kiril Simeonovski reported by User:Taivo (Result: 48 hours). Thank you, EdJohnston (talk) 23:44, 4 December 2013 (UTC)

ITN for Mikhail Kalashnikov[edit]

--SpencerT♦C 17:53, 23 December 2013 (UTC)

Thanks.--Kiril Simeonovski (talk) 22:09, 23 December 2013 (UTC)
But glad we agreed on this one! Martinevans123 (talk) 20:03, 2 January 2014 (UTC)

"Don't Bogart that ITN, my friend..."[edit]

I quite agree that no consensus was reached. But I think the decision of whether or not this is news, should have nothing to do with my personal view that individual US states are comparable with countries. Yes, I realise that USA is indeed a country. Some large bushes look like trees, some short stories look like novels, some seas look like oceans! Regards, Martinevans123 (talk) 20:02, 2 January 2014 (UTC)

Indeed, it was a news enjoying insufficient support from the others to go on the main page. After realising that the matter could have evolved in a useless discussion, I decided to request closing the nomination and thereby allow others to focus on the other nominations. Regarding your personal opinion outlining your views, it's only yours and nobody can force you think in a different way. Best regards.--Kiril Simeonovski (talk) 20:16, 2 January 2014 (UTC)
I have an obvious national bias when my own country is smaller than 47 of the US states. Martinevans123 (talk) 21:16, 2 January 2014 (UTC)

July 2014[edit]

Hi again. Please don't make any more edits like this. There are so many things wrong with that edit I don't know where to start. Just don't, please. --John (talk) 15:29, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
