Russo-Georgian war[edit]

Hello, I think my changes were correct.
for example:BTR-70,BTR-80 and BMP1/2 are used by the GAF and some of the information in the table are also either incorrect or without a source. Most of the sources a I have are not in English or not on internet(Newspaper articles for example) I kindly ask you to carefully look at the changes I made rather than accusing me of vandalism.

Sincerly,94.226.14.216 (talk) 19:53, 22 April 2014 (UTC)

if you are going to revert people citing "vandalism" in the edit summary, please could you template their user talk pages at the same time - see Wikipedia:Template messages/User talk namespace. This has three advantages for you:
  • It often leads to these people being blocked as vandals.
  • If they are not vandals, it helps them to understand that they need to change their approach, and start explaining themselves on talk pages.
  • It protects you from accusations of edit-warring - since it makes it clear that you are reverting vandalism.
--Toddy1 (talk) 14:31, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
Since you have not been templating the IP editor and he/she has reverted again, I strongly recommend using the article talk page instead of blindly reverting. He/she has used the article talk page, so you will be on a "sticky wicket" if you carry on reverting him/her.--Toddy1 (talk) 14:37, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
Toddy1 Thanks, I was thinking the same before I saw your message. At first I thought that he/she would reason, but apparently there's no point. --UA Victory (talk) 14:49, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────

Hi UA Victory -- I am strongly encouraging all involved to discuss the content of the article to find points of agreement rather than discussing and questioning the motives and tactics of other editors at Talk:Russo-Georgian_War#Official_Russian_POV_pushers. Instead, "suggest alternative solutions or compromises that may satisfy all concerns" (see Wikipedia:Consensus#Achieving_consensus). For example, if there is not consensus among the editors on which side "fired the first shot," propose a version that states that there is disagreement, cite a soure or two for each position, and work for consensus on that.

I also urge you to review the Wikipedia:Arguments to avoid in edit wars essay.

Thanks, BCorr|Брайен 12:41, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Russo-Georgian_War. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Please be particularly aware, Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made; that is to say, editors are not automatically "entitled" to three reverts.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use Talk:Russo-Georgian_War the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing.--Antonioptg (talk) 16:57, 30 August 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for August 4[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Humanitarian impact of the Russo-Georgian War, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Gori. 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.

War[edit]

Please retract your comments about "war in Eastern Ukraine". We've had this discussion before, and it is very disruptive to start it again. This is a WP:NDESC title. "Eastern Ukraine" is wrong, because it includes Kharkiv. There is no war in Kharkiv. The war is confined to Donbass. Please, I beg of you, retract those comments before they cause a great disruptive mess. We put this matter to bed with the last discussion, which was a headache. This was a compromise title. Please! RGloucester 15:35, 12 September 2014 (UTC)

  • Also, please read the discussion in the talk-page archives that led to "war in Donbass", which established why "war in Eastern Ukraine" was no good. The closer addressed it at that time. Please, read this and retract your comments before it is too late. RGloucester 15:40, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
Thank you, I've always wondered what the source for the current name was and thought it wouldn't hurt to ask. I didn't know what there was already a discussion. What does "NWar" mean? --UA Victory (talk) 15:43, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
Sorry about the extraneous "n"...meant just "war", but I'm a bit flustered with Wikipedia processes lately, so my typing has been a bit erratic. PoV pushers can really make one a little paranoid. RGloucester 15:45, 12 September 2014 (UTC)

Georgia before August 2008.svg[edit]

Hi UA Victory
I'm now able to continue the work on Georgia_before_August_2008 again.
As the earlier request is very long and complex and I have totally forgot where I left of I hope you can help me in such a way that you start a new section for this, either on your or my Talkpage?
Please just give me the specific information I need and nothing else, I still can't handle to much stuff, thanks for your understanding. --Goran tek-en (talk) 15:37, 3 November 2014 (UTC)

@UA Victory: I saw that the request has been moved to Russo-Georgian_war and I would like to know if you want me to continue the graphic work as above. I would appreciate if you contacted me and told me if or not, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 10:57, 18 November 2014 (UTC)

@Goran tek-en: Sorry, I forgot to answer. Right now, I am busy and I'll contact you later if I would like to continue the work. --UA Victory (talk) 11:03, 18 November 2014 (UTC)

Your GA nomination of Russo-Georgian War[edit]

Hi there, I'm pleased to inform you that I've begun reviewing the article Russo-Georgian War you nominated for GA-status according to the criteria. Time2wait.svg This process may take up to 7 days. Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments you might have during this period. Antidiskriminator (talk) 13:22, 16 November 2014 (UTC)

Finally! Hope you're ready to put some work in, UA Victory. The time has finally come! RGloucester 14:43, 16 November 2014 (UTC)

Your GA nomination of Russo-Georgian War[edit]

The article Russo-Georgian War you nominated as a good article has failed Symbol oppose vote.svg; see Talk:Russo-Georgian War for reasons why the nomination failed. If or when these points have been taken care of, you may apply for a new nomination of the article. Antidiskriminator (talk) 18:49, 21 November 2014 (UTC)

A cup of tea for you![edit]

Meissen-teacup pinkrose01.jpg The closure of your GA review as "failed" was very draconian, and largely inappropriate. Luckily, all is not lost. I managed to secure a new review for you, to be done by Jonas Vinther. I hope the "failure" was not too hard to bear. Your work on the article is greatly appreciated, and I hope this new review will give you the chance to raise it to Good Article quality. Enjoy this cup of tea, in the meantime. RGloucester 05:57, 23 November 2014 (UTC)

@RGloucester: Thanks. At first the reviewer seemed to give some helpful recommendations, then he/she began content dispute and I feared that exactly this would happen. --UA Victory (talk) 12:05, 24 November 2014 (UTC)

Russo-Georgian War[edit]

An editor has asked for a re-review of Russo-Georgian War, which I understand you have heavily contributed to and nominated. I've been asked to inform you personally that I will be handling the new review before the end of the month. Jonas Vinther (speak to me!) 13:24, 23 November 2014 (UTC)

The review has opened at Talk:Russo-Georgian War/GA2. RGloucester 23:28, 30 November 2014 (UTC)
