Comment[edit]

I'm pretty sure that the Russian name for the river has a hard sign and not a soft sign.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by 129.81.131.158 (talkcontribs) .

Sorry to disappoint you, but the soft sign is correct. There are no words in the Russian language that would end in a hard sign anymore.—Ëzhiki (Igel Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); 16:55, 28 June 2006 (UTC)

Which ocean does the Ob river flow into?[edit]

Which ocean does the Ob river flow into?

Whoops....[edit]

Please disregard last question....sorry.... —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 69.140.80.250 (talk) 01:00, 24 December 2006 (UTC).

Confusing statements in articles[edit]

How can this river be both the fourth longest in Russia, and the fifth longest in the world?

The River article describes it as the fifth longest in the world, while this article describes it as the fourth longest in Russia. 216.195.199.146 (talk) 21:21, 23 November 2007 (UTC)

length[edit]

It is a mess with a length of Ob in the article. In the text there is 5,410km for Ob-Irtysh system, which seems to be conventional. But what is 2,962km in the description? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hatifnatter (talkcontribs) 11:10, 12 March 2011 (UTC)

Assessment comment[edit]

==Failure of Ob River for Wikipedia 0.7== I completely failed this article because it is an extremely short Start-class article of very little importance (the 4th longest river), and it can be compared to a non-important U.S. State Road. Also, the article really doesn't exert the importance of the subject, like what the river is used for (transportation, fishing, any wildlife preserves, etc.) It really is only of specialist interest, something we are not considering right now. Try waiting until we release 1.0 (which I doubt will include minor state roads or minor rivers), and then nominate it. Diez2 14:45, 11 May 2007 (UTC)
