Russia religion template
Hi, Andrey! Not really a big deal, but since this seems to be a part of your cleanup routine, I wanted to point out that the Wikipedia style guidelines explicitly state that image captions which do not form complete sentences should not end in a period. Thanks for all the other cleanup you are doing, though :) Cheers,—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); March 5, 2018; 16:59 (UTC)
- Hi. Thanks for pointing that out. I'm probably going to look over all the federal subject pages a few times, so I'll keep it in mind next time I see it. -AndreyKva (talk) 20:22, 5 March 2018 (UTC)
- @Joe Roe: Actually, that is not correct. Per WP:P-NUK, the correct spelling for the Ukrainian capital on the English Wikipedia is Kiev. AndreyKva is absolutely correct to change it to Kiev. AusLondonder (talk) 05:05, 27 August 2018 (UTC)
National varieties of English
Hello. In a recent edit to the page Mariano Moreno, you changed one or more words or styles from one national variety of English to another. Because Wikipedia has readers from all over the world, our policy is to respect national varieties of English in Wikipedia articles.
For a subject exclusively related to the United Kingdom (for example, a famous British person), use British English. For something related to the United States in the same way, use American English. For something related to another English-speaking country, such as Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, India, or Pakistan use the variety of English used there. For an international topic, use the form of English that the original author of the article used.
In view of that, please don't change articles from one version of English to another, even if you don't normally use the version in which the article is written. Respect other people's versions of English. They, in turn, should respect yours. Other general guidelines on how Wikipedia articles are written can be found in the Manual of Style. If you have any questions about this, you can ask me on my talk page or visit the help desk. Thank you. Alexf(talk) 19:54, 7 June 2018 (UTC)
- Hi there. With regard to your edit at Federal subjects of Russia - Please see MOS:RETAIN, which states "When an English variety's consistent usage has been established in an article, maintain it in the absence of consensus to the contrary. With few exceptions (e.g., when a topic has strong national ties or a term/spelling carries less ambiguity), there is no valid reason for such a change" AusLondonder (talk) 04:40, 27 August 2018 (UTC)
What was wrong with adding the percentage of Muslims in Buryatia? I based it on this sentence:"Islam is followed by immigrant groups like Azeris and Uzbeks, who constitute another 0.7% of the population."
- 1. The bar chart is based on statistics from the Sreda Arena Atlas survey. The survey shows that less than 0.5% of the population of Buryatia follow Islam.
2. Adding 0.7% to the chart makes it mathematically wrong. If you add up all of the groups on the bar chart, you'll get 100%. If you add in 0.7%, it makes it 100.7%.
3. Not every Azerbaijani or Uzbek in Buryatia is necessarily a Muslim.
