Perhaps one little typo?[edit]

Excuse me for wasting your time, dear wikipedia editor, but, I think there is an error on the statement that mentions "At over twenty years, Kalinin spent the longest time in office; he died shortly after his resignation in 1980". Isn't it supposed to be 1946? Thanks for reading.--189.216.231.123 (talk) 23:40, 24 December 2010 (UTC)

 Done: Sorry about that one. --TIAYN (talk) 10:03, 25 December 2010 (UTC)

some formatting comments[edit]

hi

some comments on the footnotes/citations:

Use 13-digit ISBNs, if available, as these are now standard as of January 1, 2007 and issued to new books.
Use dashes if they are included, as they divide the number into meaningful parts; the placement of dashes varies between books."
  • some news articles are missing bylines. in the absence of a byline, one can put "staff writer" so the reader knows that the byline was not forgotten when preparing citations.
  • what are credentials of "sssr.ru" and "Hrono.ru? (currently footnotes #22 and #31, respectively). are there wikipedia articles on these websites?

comment on accessibility:

  • WP:ALT discusses the need for "alt" text for images for those using screen readers (or users on platforms that do not offer images).
