"Anastasia, of the Russain Taiga (Siberian Cedar forest). Born late 1960's a modern day spitual
oracle quoted throughout a series of Books by Vladimir Meagre published in 20 languages. publishers website" -- 126.96.36.199 (talk) 20:40, 7 May 2008 (UTC)
Fictional character in the real people section
11th September 2012:
"Anastasia of the Siberian Taiga, subject of the non-fictional book series The Ringing Cedars"
This should be moved and read: "Anastasia of the Siberian Taiga, subject of the fictional book series 'The Ringing Cedars'"
Here's an extract from Book 3 of the series, chapter 7: "Anastasia turned her head to one side, lifted her eyelids just slightly and fixed her gaze on a stone lying on the ground. The stone immediately began to break apart into small particles..."
Another extract, a few paragraphs later: "He aimed the pistol directly at Anastasia and discharged the whole cartridge..." "...The rest of the bullets never reached her - they dissolved into dust while still in flight..."
These are but two examples of the absolute fiction that is passed off as a factual true story by author Vladmir Megre. The character is irrefutably fictional and the Wikipedia entry for this fictional individual should reflect this. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Watsong1 (talk • contribs) 18:59, 11 September 2012 (UTC)
Update: 18 November 2013:
User "Rklawton" reverted this change without justification only two days after it was made. This represents either ignorant, absent minded behaviour or a personal interest in the sales of the associated book series. I invite "RKlawton" to produce evidence as to the supernatural powers exhibited by the character "Anastasia" in the book - so far as to reasonably confirm that a real person can, in fact, have and use such supernatural powers.
In addition, it needs to be confirmed with suitable evidence, as per the book series, that 300 year old fir trees can, in fact, fire white beams of death, that kill people on contact, when its branches are broken. Quote from book 1, page 103 of the series: "Great-Grandfather said that if I had touched the ray emanating from the broken branch, my brain would have exploded..." The fictional character of the book, Anastasia, then goes on to explain that both her parents were killed by the very same fictional fir tree phenomenon. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Watsong1 (talk • contribs) 20:47, 19 November 2013 (UTC)
I have removed and asked an admin to delete the former image in the infobox because I uploaded it under the wrong section. I intend to re-upload it and add it back in the infobox. Jonas Vinther (speak to me!) 16:01, 27 October 2014 (UTC)
- I have replaced the image in question with an image of Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna of Russia. Jonas Vinther (speak to me!) 20:18, 27 October 2014 (UTC)
Edit conflict about "See also" section
Altenmann, I have reverted your edit once again; "Anastasia" is a Slavic name and the names mentioned in the "See also" section is also Slavic names that is heavily used in the Slavic countries. Therefore, It's relevant! Jonas Vinther (speak to me!) 20:57, 18 January 2015 (UTC)
- No it's not. The relevance must be immediate: either additional information on the article subject or really similar topics. "Slavic name" is a broad category. There are hundreds of Slavic names. All are different. Also, it is a Greek name. -M.Altenmann >t 06:56, 16 February 2015 (UTC)
