Things you can do Привет and Welcome! The following is a list of things you can do:

Project guidelines[edit]

As a result of the recent discussion on my talk page, I've created a draft to hold the WikiProject Russia-related guidelines at Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Russia-related articles. Note that at this point the guidelines are meant to be descriptive, not prescriptive; i.e., they describe the current state of the matters and require making no changes to bring existing articles in compliance. Please feel free to add other descriptive guidelines from other areas to that page. Any prescriptive measures one would like to suggest should be suggested through the appropriate policy channels, of course.—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); December 13, 2012; 15:10 (UTC)


I am planning to soon update {{Infobox Russian district}} to include two new fields (to hold the counts of the administrative divisions other than selsoviets) and to more clearly separate the sections on the administrative and municipal divisions from the counts of inhabited localities. If anyone has any other suggestions (or nagging concerns) about that template, now would be a good time to comment. Thanks in advance.—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); March 8, 2013; 13:59 (UTC)


Could someone take a look at this? I also think the entire Civil War article needs more (secondary) sources. (talk) 08:01, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

Oleg Ivanovsky[edit]

Do we have an article on "Oleg Ivanovsky" [1]? Obviously it isn't under this title. -- (talk) 06:42, 19 September 2014 (UTC)

I've checked various alternative spellings, and it doesn't look like we do.—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); September 19, 2014; 15:37 (UTC)

Comment on the WikiProject X proposal[edit]

Hello there! As you may already know, most WikiProjects here on Wikipedia struggle to stay active after they've been founded. I believe there is a lot of potential for WikiProjects to facilitate collaboration across subject areas, so I have submitted a grant proposal with the Wikimedia Foundation for the "WikiProject X" project. WikiProject X will study what makes WikiProjects succeed in retaining editors and then design a prototype WikiProject system that will recruit contributors to WikiProjects and help them run effectively. Please review the proposal here and leave feedback. If you have any questions, you can ask on the proposal page or leave a message on my talk page. Thank you for your time! (Also, sorry about the posting mistake earlier. If someone already moved my message to the talk page, feel free to remove this posting.) Harej (talk) 22:48, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

Expert attention[edit]

This is a notice about Category:Russia/Visual arts in Russia task force articles needing expert attention, which might be of interest to your WikiProject. It will take a while before the category is populated. Iceblock (talk) 21:10, 11 October 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Apollon Vasilyevich Troitski[edit]

Dear Russia experts: Here's an old AfC submission which was declined as too essay-like and will soon be deleted as a stale draft. Can someone more familiar with this subject please comment on whether this is a notable subject? If so, the article can be shortened to include only facts. —Anne Delong (talk) 01:39, 22 October 2014 (UTC)
