Merge proposal[edit]

I see no reason why this article should exist separately from the Second Kamchatka Expedition. The "concept of expedition" hardly deserves a separate article, and in fact in the Russian language literature the term Great Northern Expedition seems to be just a more common name for the endeavour, preferred over the Second Kamchatka Expedition. So the content from that article should be moved here, and the Second Kamchatka Expedition should be redirected here. Greyhood (talk) 17:06, 18 June 2010 (UTC)

Seconded. --Ghirla-трёп- 14:49, 19 June 2010 (UTC)
Well, the merge is done. Greyhood (talk) 22:15, 26 June 2010 (UTC)
I just found this page and wondered at the large Background section which makes the page function like an all-inclusive page for the first and second expeditions. I haven't looked yet, but if there is a well-written First Expedition page, the large background section about the founding of the academy etc. should be shortened to links.--Paddling bear (talk) 15:51, 11 December 2011 (UTC)

Missing 2nd half?[edit]

Half the article seems to be missing. There is a section describing what happend when one of the expedition members' fire went out, ending in a colon. This clearly implies more to follow - there is none. The story of the 2nd and 3rd parties in the expedition is also missing. Lot of work needed.1812ahill (talk) 22:34, 16 December 2012 (UTC)
