Q1: Why were my edits to the intro section removed ?
A1: The intro represents a summary of the article itself. It should present, in a nutshell, the sourced information in the sections below, without unnecessary details. Therefore its structure should not be changed either, unless there is a general restructuring of the article itself.
Q2: The national motto is "Strength through unity", not "Unity makes strength" ?
A2: The national motto of Bulgaria is based on a phrase that was first used as a motto by the Dutch Republic in 1581. The phrase was later adopted by Belgium, as L'Union fait la force, and in turn by the House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, which ruled Bulgaria after its Liberation, in 1887.
Q3: Why was my image removed ?
A3: This is not a picture gallery. Images should illustrate information that is present in the text; they should illustrate the most significant points of a section and should be with near-Featured Image (if not FI) quality. If you think your image is good, consider proposing it for Featured Image status at Wikimedia Commons. Also, images of "modern buildings" are completely undesired; "modern" could mean anything and a building could never represent the entire economy of the country. If you want to remove or replace an image, please, discuss it with the community on the talk page. For more information, read Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Images.
Q4: Bulgaria is ranked as the 98th-largest petroleum producer and was 5th on the Handball European League in 1996, this is important information, why do you remove it ?
A4: Avoid including facts that are neither statistically informative nor significant on a global, or at least on a continental level. As the intro summarizes the article itself, the sections summarize the content of their respective main articles in the same manner. Include any information more detailed than the usual in the relevant History, Geography, Economy mains, not here. This page only presents the most basic information, along with the statistically superlative items of the country - Bulgaria being the largest essential oil producer globally or the site of the first man-made structures (yet discovered) in Europe is something significant; a Bulgarian making it up to the Wimbledon semifinals or discovering a sixth heart sound is not. Consider reading Wikipedia:Summary style and Wikipedia:UNDUE.
Q5: I have added information on the origin of the Bulgars/Thracians, why was it removed ?
A5: This article's historical section is only dealing with how the Bulgarian state formed. The origins of its constituent peoples are out of its scope and should not be included.
Q6: There are no positive developments pointed out in the Ottoman rule section, this is not a neutral point of view ?
A6: The events presented are a collection of sourced statements and historical developments. After all, the Ottoman era represents a long-lasting military occupation.

As parties of ethnic and religious nature are forbidden by the Constitution of Bulgaria, the party has described itself as a party for all Bulgarians, whose aim at the same time is the welfare of the minorities. The party's predecessor during the communist rule in the 1980s was the underground organization Turkish National Freedom Movement. From 2001 to 2009, the party was part of the government, first in a coalition with the National Movement Simeon II (NDSV) party and then with the Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP).
The party was chaired by Ahmed Dogan from its official establishment on 4 January 1990 until 19 January 2013. On 19 January 2013, Lütfi Mestan was elected as the second chairman of the Movement for Rights and Freedoms.
Kinda fed up with people interpreting numbers as they see fit or just plain manipulating them. The article states "More than three-quarters of Bulgarians subscribe to Eastern Orthodoxy.", citing the NSI Census data from 2011.
Now what the NSI data really says is 21.8% haven't answered the question about religion, and 76.0% of those who answered identify themselves as orthodox christians, meaning its not "three-quarters" but 59.4%.

Bulgaria was under Ottoman slavery. The Bulgarians who made rebellions agaisnt Ottomans- Chrosto Botev and Vasil Levski say that they are under ""Ottoman slavery. Most of the Muslims invaders flew from BUlgaria in 1878 AD, ut some of the continue to live in Bulgaria. Later, in 1990 AD, some Muslim turks made a party. They begin to lie that " there is no Ottoman slavery". But All Bulgarian know that the life for bulgarians in Otoman empire was Slavery. So at all places the word ""Ottoman rule" must be replaced with "Ottoman slavery" !!! The first Bulgarian empire helped many times Byzantium, against the Muslims invaders from Saudi Arabia. For example- 718 AD... Bulgaria was under Byzantine rule from 1018 AD to 1185 AD. It do not change very serious the life of Bulgarians, because bothe - Byzantines and Bulgarians were Christianians. So from 1018 to 1185 AD, Bulgaria is under Byzantine Rule, and from 1396 to 1878 AD Bulgaria is under Ottoman Slavery !!! So at all places the word ""Ottoman rule" must be replaced with "Ottoman slavery"
