Regarding spelling of Myakzyum Salakhov vs. Mäğzüm Säläxev
I believe the first version should be used for the article title. The second should be used in the article on Myakzyum Salakhov, together with other versions of spelling. Here are my reasons:
- Wikipedia:Naming conventions (use English), Wikipedia:Naming_conventions
- This is an English wiki. It's impossible to type Mäğzüm Säläxev on a standard keyboard
- Google knows nothing of Mäğzüm Säläxev except links to this article. On the other hand, Myakzyum Salakhov is quite common. You want people to actually find the article, right?
- I understand that Mäğzüm Säläxev is a proper Turkish spellling of the name, but as far as I know, Tatarstan officially uses Cyrillic spelling. Why should the Turkish spelling be used as primary when the official is Cyrillic?
- Take a look at Talk:Kiev for a similar dispute and what was decided.

- And one more thing - the guy himself uses name Myakzyum Salakhov as his email Myakzyum.Salakhov -at- ksu.ru. Gene s 08:12, 12 Aug 2004 (UTC)
Romanization of Tatar
Romanization of Tatar/Tatar Latin Alphabet is uses Turkish chapters. ä uses only in Tatar , not Turkish.
- That's fine. But keep in mind that this is an English wikipedia. It should use commonly used English names or an official English names. The common English spelling of Salakhov is Myakzyum Salakhov (search Google), the official English names according to his place of work is Myakzyum Salakhov. Thus the article title should be Myakzyum Salakhov. Gene s 06:19, 13 Aug 2004 (UTC)
ya uses for Russian letter я, Tatar ә can be spelled only like ä. Ğ is gh, ş is sn, other letters are iin standart key board.
- Redirects are fine. But the artcle title should be in English. All alternative spllings should go to the article itself. Gene s 06:19, 13 Aug 2004 (UTC)

Dates to be added to the article
It would be proper to add the following important dates related to the Kazan University: its establishment in 1804, and its end in 2009. Starting from 2009, the University is no more. It was merged with several other local universities into Volga-area Federal University, and thus ceased to exist as an independed body. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 15:31, 17 January 2010 (UTC)
- The Decree was signed on October 21, 2009, and mandates the creation of the federal university in three months. I guess the question is whether this deadline has been met (three months have not passed yet). Please, clarify.—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); 15:23, January 18, 2010 (UTC)
- I've been following this, and the universities have not yet merged. I added the appropriate information on the planned merger, but I'd want to see clear information confirming that the merger has happened before going ahead with marking Kazan State closed. At that point, we will have to think about potential redirects and whatnot as necessary to reflect the new university and its subunits. Avram (talk) 22:07, 18 January 2010 (UTC)
Lenin's alma mater
- The word is in fact broader -- the person needn't graduate to be considered an alumnus. Lenin did not graduate from Kazan University. The OED provides: "The nurseling or pupil of any school, university, or other seat of learning. Also, a graduate or former student (chiefly U.S., esp. in pl.)."

- Thanks for that. I've never received communications from the Alumni Society of a university which I've attended but from which I have not graduated, hence my confusion. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Aliotra (talk • contribs) 18:22, 8 October 2010 (UTC)
