Welcome!

Hello, Mackbad, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Unfortunately, your edit to Grand Duchy of Moscow does not conform to Wikipedia's Neutral Point of View policy (NPOV). Wikipedia articles should refer only to facts and interpretations that have been stated in print or on reputable websites or other forms of media.

There's a page about the NPOV policy that has tips on how to effectively write about disparate points of view without compromising the NPOV status of the article as a whole. If you are stuck, and looking for help, please come to the New contributors' help page, where experienced Wikipedians can answer any queries you have! Or, you can just type {{Help me}} on your user page, and someone will show up shortly to answer your questions. Here are a few other good links for newcomers:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your name and the date. If you have any questions, check out Wikipedia:Where to ask a question or ask me on my talk page. Again, welcome!  Iryna Harpy (talk) 22:56, 26 February 2014 (UTC)

February 2014[edit]

Information icon Welcome to Wikipedia. At least one of your recent edits, such as the edit you made to Template:History of East Slavs, History of Russia and a number of others (all reiterating the same mistake) did not appear to be constructive and has been reverted or removed. Although everyone is welcome to contribute to Wikipedia, please take some time to familiarise yourself with our policies and guidelines. You can find information about these at the welcome page which also provides further information about contributing constructively to this encyclopedia. If you only meant to make some test edits, please use the sandbox for that. Please note that the article name is Vladimir-Suzdal. You seem to be confused on that issue, as well as WP:RS and contributor consensus over the use of the term. Iryna Harpy (talk) 23:24, 26 February 2014 (UTC)
