Dead reference[edit]

Second reference is dead. 93.157.16.74 (talk) 14:27, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

Medal Photo[edit]

Let's keep it. Raul654, who is the main one who decides on Featured Articles, requested me to provide photos of the medals instead of drawings in the future. I mainly drew them out of copyright issues. Zscout370 (Sound Off) 20:11, 21 July 2005 (UTC)

List of Heroes[edit]

Just like with List of heroes of Ukraine, we can create the full list of heroes there. The main article could be just used for heroes that have articles. Zscout370 (Sound Off) 07:41, 30 July 2005 (UTC)

Ukrainian cosmonauts[edit]

What's the deal with "Ukrainian" cosmonauts. They are ethnic Ukrainians, no doubt, but they are not "Ukrainian cosmonauts", I think. It's like calling Gogol a Ukrainian writer or Sikorsky (born in Kiev) a Ukrainian Engineer. Besides, why are they in the short list of the most notable recipients out of 700+ people? --Irpen 04:39, 22 September 2005 (UTC)

We have artilces on them. I try to have less "red links" as possible, and if we want to make a full list of Heroes of the RF, then we can do that. But as for the Ukrainian bit, they were marked that way because that was where they were born. If you feel this is not right, I will change it. Zach (Sound Off) 05:18, 22 September 2005 (UTC)

Thanks! Yes, I think just "cosmonaut" is better in this context. Cheers, --Irpen 05:53, 22 September 2005 (UTC)

Your quite welcome. Zach (Sound Off) 05:55, 22 September 2005 (UTC)
I just checked Leroy Chiao. He is listed as an American Astronaut, not a Chinese one. This is a very close analogy. Cheers, --Irpen 19:27, 22 September 2005 (UTC)
I see where you are coming from. While he was born in China, he did his astronaut service for the US. In the Ukrainian situation, while that is their heritage/nationality, they performed their services for the Russian Federation, so that is why they received the title of hero from Russia, not the Ukraine.

Vladimir Glebov[edit]

Hi. Would someone look again for Vladimir Glebov and verify if he's indeed on none of the lists? --HanzoHattori (talk) 14:11, 14 January 2008 (UTC)

GA Sweeps[edit]

This article has been reviewed as part of Wikipedia:WikiProject Good articles/Project quality task force. I believe the article currently meets the criteria and should remain listed as a Good article, although I would like to see the piece extended somewhat and more importantly all the references and internal links properly formatted as per the section below. The article history has been updated to reflect this review. Regards, Jackyd101 (talk) 12:18, 30 May 2008 (UTC)

Citations[edit]

The internet inline citations used in this article are improperly formatted and this problem may hinder a GA nomination. Internet citations require at the very least information on the title, publisher and last access date of any webpages used. If the source is a news article then the date of publication and the author are also important. This information is useful because it allows a reader to a) rapidly identify a source's origin b) ascertain the reliability of that source and c) find other copies of the source should the website that hosts it become unavaliable for any reason. It may also in some circumstances aid in determining the existance or status of potential copyright infringments. Finally, it looks much tidier, making the article appear more professional. There are various ways in which this information can be represented in the citation, listed at length at Wikipedia:Citing sources. The simplest way of doing this is in the following format:

<ref>{{cite web|(insert URL)|title=|publisher=|work=|date=|author=|accessdate=}}</ref>

As an example:

  • <ref>{{cite web|url=http://www.discovery.org/a/3859|title=Avoiding a Thirty Years War|publisher=www.discovery.org|work=[[The Washington Post]]|date=2006-12-21|author=Richard W. Rahn|accessdate=2008-05-25}}</ref>

which looks like:

If any information is unknown then simply omit it, but title, publisher and last access dates are always required. I strongly recommend that all internet inline references in this article be formatted properly before this article undergoes GA review, and indeed this is something that a reviewer should insist you do before promoting your article. If you have any further questions please contact me and as mentioned above, more information on this issue can be found at Wikipedia:Citing sources.
