I actually did not move from one to the other :) I was both for some time...
And I will stop being a municipal deputy in a couple of months since I will be moving 500 km away from my current home
If the question is rather "why did I stop helping a global community", there were maybe several answers possible. One is that I think that such role should not stay too long in one person hands as it is easy to then lose sense of what really matters (=avoid power grip). Another is that the role took me far too much time but was volunteer based. No one can survive only of free air and water (which is actually not free at all) and no one was willing to pay my living costs. I am not from a wealthy family and I had to stop to actually make a living. My 10 years on Wikipedia have taken a very heavy toll on my family well being. It saddens me greatly to see that my children will actually not make the studies I hoped for them simply because I cannot afford paying those for them. I do not regret what I did, but it was important for me to move on.

    • Sorry for not replying earlier, I was busy in Russia Wikipedia. Thanks for the reply. Good luck to you, both in your Wikimedia work & in your personal life! :) --Синкретик (talk) 16:51, 15 May 2013 (UTC)


Alcohol laws of New Jersey[edit]

You posted a {{nofootnotes}} template on Alcohol laws of New Jersey claiming that the lead section needed sourcing. I reverted your edit and removed the template. Unfortunately, your claim was never an issue during the featured article nomination process where it would have been brought up if it were an issue (i.e. FA criteria require strict compliance to MOS), and no other editors who have reviewed the article agree with your assessment. Further, the lead is a general summary of information already adequately cited abundantly in the article's body. Per WP:LEADCITE:

Leads are usually written at a greater level of generality than the body, and information in the lead section of non-controversial subjects is less likely to be challenged and less likely to require a source; there is not, however, an exception to citation requirements specific to leads. The necessity for citations in a lead should be determined on a case-by-case basis by editorial consensus. Complex, current, or controversial subjects may require many citations; others, few or none. The presence of citations in the introduction is neither required in every article nor prohibited in any article.

Per this policy, if you have a demand for sourcing, please discuss its necessity on the talk page with the design of obtaining a consensus from editors on whether it a "necessity". I, for one, do not agree that such sourcing is required or necessary in the lead of this article, as the material is sufficiently cited when it is referred to specifically and explicitly within subsequent discussion in the article's body. --ColonelHenry (talk) 12:20, 6 July 2013 (UTC)

  • I responded to one of your queries on the ALoNJ talk page regarding citizenship/licenses/municipalities. I'll take a look later regarding the limousine/vehicle issue. Hope that answers your question.--ColonelHenry (talk) 15:33, 11 August 2013 (UTC)

List of Governors of Arkansas[edit]

After being encouraged by seeing activity on the California list, I went back through to make some format changes to the lists, and got to Arkansas, and wow, yeah, a lot of the dates were wrong, just as you said. Not majorly, but a lot of modern sources have one or two day discrepancies. I think I've fixed them all; if you're still around, I'd love for you to take a look at it and see if I missed anything. Thanks! --Golbez (talk) 08:06, 5 September 2015 (UTC)
