Hello, Boguslavmandzyuk, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your name and the date. If you need help, check out Wikipedia:Questions, ask me on my talk page, or place {{helpme}} on your talk page and someone will show up shortly to answer your questions.

If you are interested in Ukraine-related themes, you may want to check out the Ukraine Portal, particularly the Portal:Ukraine/New article announcements and Portal:Ukraine/Ukraine-related Wikipedia notice board. The New article announcements board is probably the most important and the most attended one. Please don't forget to anounce there the new articles you create. Adding both boards to your watchlist is probably a good idea.

Finally, in case you are interested, similar boards exist at Russia portal as many editors contribute to topics related to both countries. The respective boards there are: Portal:Russia/New article announcements and Portal:Russia/Russia-related Wikipedia notice board. Of course there are also many other portals at Wikipedia or you may just get right into editing.

Вербицький[edit]

Щодо місця народження є дуже різні дані, але на цій табличці написано, що саме в Улючі Ulucz, а не в Jawornik Ruski. Це uk:Надсяння, зараз входить у склад Польщі. --Yakudza 21:32, 2 January 2007 (UTC)

I've been to Uluch and I saw his marker monument near the Church. The person that looks after the church told me that they thought initially that he was born there but he wasn't. He was born a few kilometres away but his father was the priest in Uluch and he was baptised there. Bandurist (talk) 16:06, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

Helping out with the Unassessed Wikipedia Biographies[edit]

Seeing that you are an active member of the WikiBiography Project, I was wondering if you would help lend a hand in helping us clear out the amount of unassessed articles tagged with {{WPBiography}}. Many of them are of stub and start class, but a few are of B or A caliber. Getting a simple assessment rating can help us start moving many of these biographies to a higher quality article. Thank you! --Ozgod 20:15, 23 February 2007 (UTC)

Linking years[edit]

I noticed that you linked all of the years in the article on Zhumabay Shayakhmetov. While there is general agreement that the birth and death years should be linked, there is less agreement about links to other years mentioned in an article. Some editors believe that links to years are generally useful to establish context for the article. Others believe that links to years are rarely useful to the reader and reduce the readability of the text. The general rule should be followed when deciding whether to link or not to link a year. Namely: Wikipedia:Only make links that are relevant to the context. There is no general consensus that the habit of linking separate years (namely date indications that only consist of a "year") should be abandoned, although most Wikipedians disfavour that habit currently. Few, if any, Wikipedians support blindly linking all year dates. I would ask that you review the Zhumabay Shayakhmetov article and remove the year links that do not provide sufficient context. --Bejnar 22:20, 19 March 2007 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of FC Knyazha Schaslyve[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg
A tag has been placed on FC Knyazha Schaslyve requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for biographies.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

AfD nomination of FC Knyazha Schaslyve[edit]

I have nominated FC Knyazha Schaslyve, an article you created, for deletion. I do not feel that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/FC Knyazha Schaslyve. Your opinions on the matter are welcome at that same discussion page; also, you are welcome to edit the article to address these concerns. Thank you for your time.

Lyatoshynsky[edit]

Boguslav, please do not move articles by cut and paste. Such moves destroy the history thus making it impossible for all the contributors to be credited for their work. My own contributions to this article are not of any significance but still especially in this article but such moves are a bad idea. Please read WP:MOVE for more details. I will now restore the article at the original location and a redirect, and we can have the redirect cleaned up from history so that the article can be moved there properly. In general, it is a good idea to propose the renaming at the talk page except in few trivial cases. Regards, --Irpen 07:06, 15 March 2008 (UTC)

Ukrainian Barnstar of National Merit[edit]

Raspberry medal.png The Ukrainian Barnstar of National Merit
You are hereby awarded this raspberry-ribboned, a historic color of Запорізьких Козаків, National Merit Award "for special contributions to Ukrainian topics". These include among many others: Kobzar (book), Pidmanula Pidvela (song), and Khotyn Fortress. It is also in appreciation for creating a first-class image Image:Ukraine Gold Ball.JPG that will inspire others who, like yourself, contribute on the topic of Ukrainian football.

I'm sorry. I got it from the Polish language Wikipedia, where it was being used, and reuploaded it to Wikimedia Commons. I did not know that the picture was not him. --Boguslav (talk) 02:11, 15 April 2008 (UTC)

Tórshavn[edit]

Hi!
I saw that you put the sister towns in article of Tórshavn. Could you tell me where comes that information from? I can't find it enywhere include websides of all this towns.
Viltharis (talk) 17:11, 28 April 2008 (UTC)

Garðabær was the only twin city listed on Torshavn, so based off of the twin sisties of Garðabær, I copied its twinnings to Torshavn. I hope that's not wrong :) --Boguslav (talk) 02:27, 29 April 2008 (UTC)
Och, I think this actually is wrong, sorry. The fact that one town is a twin town of the other does not mean, that each twin town of the first one must be the twin towns of the latter one. So Garðabær's sister towns are different than Tórshavn's. I'll fix it, I just wanted to know where is that information from. :)
Viltharis (talk) 16:14, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

Cup '08[edit]

It would be my honor:) Thank you. Of course, I will. It's a good idea, I think it should be extended to the other finals as well.

Diletsky/Dyletsky/etc.[edit]

Hello,

I'm sorry, I accidentally created the article Nikolay Diletsky. For some reason I couldn't find your article on him, Mykola Dyletsky. Now, I know this sounds rude, but I suggest moving the content from your article to mine, and making yours a redirect. The spelling "Mykola Dyletsky" only returns 92 hits and is not mentioned in my sources (most importantly New Grove, but also Dolskaya-Ackerly's article on Moscow polyphonic school, etc.), whereas "Nikolay Diletsky" returns more than a thousand hits and is the spelling used in New Grove. I realize that there are too many spelling variants, but in my opinion Wikipedia should probably adopt what is, or seems to be, the scholarly norm, i.e. New Grove.

Sorry again for creating my article; I really should've looked more carefully. But I only found yours accidentally, while searching for the spelling "Diletski" to set up a redirect! --Jashiin (talk) 08:25, 15 June 2008 (UTC)

Hi, Wikipedia policy says that there is no article ownership and none of us can can have our articles. (See WP:OWN) Also, moves and merges should be decided on by community concensus on the talk page. In order to make a merge, you must follow the instructions here: WP:MERGE. --Boguslav (talk) 16:45, 16 June 2008 (UTC)
I'm familiar with the policy, thank you. But I was merely using the words "my" and "your" to refer to an article I created and an article you moved, respectively. I went on with the merge proposal as you suggested. --Jashiin (talk) 17:29, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

FC Lviv[edit]

I do not know. I might have been wrong. I tried to differentiate the two clubs FC Lviv -- the one that has become FC Karpaty-2 and the other that emerged from FC Hazovyk. I do not think that two of them directly related and that should be noted. I apologize for any inconvinience. I do recognize that it was not such a great idea. Aleksandr Grigoryev (talk) 00:11, 17 June 2008 (UTC)

Nikolay Diletsky[edit]

Updated DYK query On 28 June, 2008, Did you know? was updated with a fact from the article Nikolay Diletsky, which you recently nominated. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the Did you know? talk page.
--BorgQueen (talk) 20:09, 28 June 2008 (UTC)

How nice of you to graciously accept an award you didn't deserve. "You created or substantially expanded," indeed. Didn't even think of notifying me, did you? I could've expanded the article further to make a better impression, could've suggested a better hook to reference a more important aspect of his work rather than just the dates of birth and death being unknown, hell, the article was just not ready for DYK yet. But of course it was more important for you to snatch the opportunity. Apparently the modus operandi of Ukrainian nationalists is just the same as that of their Russian counterparts: watch other people work, then get all the credit. Can't say I'm surprised. --Jashiin (talk) 09:35, 29 June 2008 (UTC)

I didn't mean any offense. I just nominated it for the DYK. You don't have to have expanded or created an article to nominate it. I just didn't have the time to correct the mistake the I'm the one that nominated it, not the one that expanded it. Of couse you also deserve the award more for than I for expanding it. I should have suggested the DYK on the talk page first. I'm sorry about these misunderstandings we had and will try to correct them on my part. --Boguslav (talk) 22:29, 30 June 2008 (UTC)
I'm sorry for the misunderstanding as well, and I also apologize for being too harsh - just had one of those days. Thanks for putting the tag on my page; I guess everything's settled now. All the best, --Jashiin (talk) 18:53, 1 July 2008 (UTC)

Re: Dynamo[edit]

Because WP:NOT#NEWS, delets all in/out transfers i find no matter club. --> Halmstad, Talk to me 00:10, 13 July 2008 (UTC)

I also once added transfers in and out for Halmstads BK, however it was deleted because of WP:NOT#NEWS. I agree with you that transfers should be showed on wikipedia, but as Stochil, on my talk page, sugested as Manchester United F.C. season 2008-09 not in the articel about the club, adding it and then remove it when it change next season makes it more look like a newsservice instead of a encyclopedia. If you create articals such as Man. Uniteds i would not do anything, i would also love to help if i could. --> Halmstad, Talk to me 00:38, 14 July 2008 (UTC)

Druha Hrupa A[edit]

Why did you delete Ros and Yednist from the competition? Do you have references? According to PFL their game was moved 21 October, 2008. Also they are scheduled to play in the second round on the 25th July, 2008.Brudder Andrusha (talk) 01:27, 25 July 2008 (UTC)

Perhaps you are talking about this edit. It was done by Aleksandr Grigoryev (talk · contribs), not by me.--Boguslav (talk) 18:48, 25 July 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for the clarification. I'll follow up on this because Ros played Arsenal today in the Bila Tserkva derby to a 2-2 draw. Brudder Andrusha (talk) 21:42, 25 July 2008 (UTC)

Yea, that was me. My apology:) That way the official web-sait of PFL was stating, so I just followed it after. I thought that they were taken off the competition together with the FC Enerhiya Yuzhnoukrainsk the situation with which was clearified much later.

Speedy deletion of Potap[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg
A tag has been placed on Potap requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a band, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia.

Potap[edit]

I'll admit, I know nothing about Ukrainian music. However, there were no sources to show that the articles meet notability requirements. If there are sources to show otherwise, then the articles should be recreated. Paragon12321 (talk) 01:31, 30 July 2008 (UTC)

I do know enough about European music to know that Eurovision is a big deal. If there are enough sources to show the notability of Potap, please recreate the page with them. Simply creating a page with "Joe Schmoe is a composer" makes no assertion of notabilty, and is liable to be speedied. Paragon12321 (talk) 01:58, 30 July 2008 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Janne holmen stamp.jpg)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Janne holmen stamp.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use.

You may have noticed that some of the mottos recently have been followed by a date from 2006, or on occasion simply "Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia". The reason for this is that Motto of the day is in some very serious need of help. Participation in the project, which has never been especially high, has dropped considerably over this past summer, to the point we have had several days where no motto was scheduled to appear at all. Over the past several weeks, I've been the only editor scheduling mottos at all, but there aren't enough comments on some of these mottos to justify their use. If we do not get some help - and soon - your daily mottos will stop. In order for us to continue updating these templates for you, we need your help.

When you get a chance between your normal editing, could you stop by our nominations page and leave a few comments on some of the mottos there, especially those that do not have any comments yet? This works very simply; you read a motto, decide whether or not you like it, and post your opinion just below the motto. That's it - no experience required, just an idea of what you personally like and what you feel reflects Wikipedia and its community. If you do have past experience with the project, then please close some of the older nominations once they've got a decent consensus going. There are directions on the nominations page on how to do this.

If you have any questions, please let me know, or post on the project's talk page. I'm looking forward to reading your comments on the suggested mottos, and any additional suggestions you'd like to make. Until then, happy editing! Hersfold (t/a/c) 01:47, 4 September 2008 (UTC)

Kostomarov[edit]

What do you think? WP:RM? To me this seems obvious, I get more results for Mykola in every search I do. Ostap 00:28, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

My searches all point to the name Mykola Kostomarov as well. Maybe Irpen is just using a different searching method. If we can clear up why we have these searching differences, mabybe we can all agree on the name change. If not, we will have to request a move, which I would definitely support. --BoguslavM 00:42, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

List of Ukrainian rulers[edit]

Hey man, I have created a page and then noticed you interest in this page. It is not finished, I still want to put the modern rulers (presidents:-) in, but it is looking pretty good I think. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Ivan2007 (talkcontribs) 05:19, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

Hi. Sorry for responding so late. I am greatly interested in this topic and would like to pitch in when I have time. However, I am very busy recently and usually barelly have time to check my watchlist. --BoguslavM 09:58, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

Kozova[edit]

Thanks, Boguslav, for your quick work on Kozova. Do I understand correctly that you alerted by my request on the Wikipedia:WikiProject Ukraine? If so, I applaud that WP and your diligence, as similar notices I've posted elsewhere haven't always met with a meaningful (if any) response. Though I note you "reserve the right to screw up...", I'll do some follow-up lite editing on the page, and then must move on to other tasks. Perhaps I'll come back and consult you in the future on Ukraine-related content.-- Cheers, Deborahjay (talk) 05:56, 19 December 2008 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Dmytro Nepohodov[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Dmytro Nepohodov has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Did not play a single game in a fully-professional league and therefore fails WP:ATHLETE. The one game listed as played by him for Olympique Marseille in the infobox is bogus, I can't find any sources that he played for the main team.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{dated prod}} will stop the Proposed Deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The Speedy Deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and Articles for Deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Geregen2 (talk) 19:19, 12 November 2009 (UTC)

Choir Article; ambiguities to me[edit]

Hi, this is Ehsan. I'm about to finish editing/translation of the choir article from en: wikipedia for fa: wikipedia, but I'm still a little bit dubious about some parts. I checked the contributors and found you among them. Here is that question:

Although many contemporary churches have replaced the choir with singers, some churches have choirs which are backing vocalists in contrary to front line singers, which are in the Alto, Soprano and Tenor range for both Males and Females.

Does it mean: except for "Solo" singers, there's a choir also? Are front line singers the "solos"? After the phrase "in contrary...", I don't get it completely. Would you help me on this please?

Lots of thanks; Princilll (talk) 08:29, 17 July 2011 (UTC)

hmmm.. I don't know. This phrase is also very confusing to me. I'm not sure what the editor who wrote it meant. Try finding who specifically wrote that statement.--BoguSlav 21:45, 17 July 2011 (UTC)

The article Oleksandr Slobodian has been proposed for deletion because, under Wikipedia policy, all newly created biographies of living persons must have at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced.

Allan Hall (musician)[edit]

Mr. Hall does not meet the notability requirements of WP:MUSICBIO outside the band. A release of one album, that went nowhere, does not meet the requirements. Looking at your other contributions, Todd Smith does not meet it either. Please review the requirements... no mention of either singer before the band. didn't chart, didn't make a gold record, didn't release two or more albums on a major label, etc, etc.

Never use an Amazon link. Amazon is unreliable and is considered self-promotion.

NEVER revert before doing a discussion or any discussion at all. Always use an edit summary.

Your choice, do you want the articles deleted or redirected? Bgwhite (talk) 05:17, 21 April 2012 (UTC)

Hi. I don't who are, but judging from your user page you're not an administrator. And even among my interactions with admins, none was close to being as arrogant as you. As a matter of fact, they were all very civil. So I don't know where you think you get the authority to tell me what and what not to ever do. Also, thanks for reviewing my edits. As a newcomer here who's been on Wikipedia as long as you have, I think I AM in need your tutoring and double-checking all of my edits until I'm familiar with wikipedia's policies.
As for the article, I find all of your objections to be quite irrelevent.
  1. Please show me the wikipedia policy that says that Amazon is considered self-promotion. If you took a look, you'd see the album is being sold by Curb Records, a pretty big record company. You don't really think that Allan Hall, a singer signed by Curb Records, produced that record in his garage and put it for sale on Amazon? Also, if Amazon is commonly not accepted by the wikipedia community, why is it cited in some of these featured articles: Love. Angel. Music. Baby., Barton Fink, Branded to Kill, Fantasy Black Channel, Faryl, Ghosts I–IV, Illinois (album), In Rainbows, etc, etc. They cleary had no problems citing amazon as a reliable source, and even promoted them to featured on numerous occasions. Where were you for those FA reviews?
  2. I'm pretty sure, you reverted me first (may I remind, without a discussion)
Now back to WP:MUSICBIO
  1. Allan Hall fits requirement #1: "the subject of multiple, non-trivial, published works" from reliable indepedent sources. [1] radio station, [2] on CCM Magazine
  2. Allan Hall is a songwriter, and therefore, co-author, of albums that won Dove Awards. (WP:COMPOSER. Criteria #1)
  3. Allan Hall has also produced numerous records with Curb Records.
Now I hope I don't need to remind you that he only needs to fullfil ONE of those requirements to be considered notable according to wikipedia policies. If you weren't so quick to edit articles that you know nothing about (or pretend not to. I don't know which), then you would see me adding a lot more information about him onto his article over the next few days or weeks. However, apparently I can't start a stub here, without you putting in your five cents about its notability. Until you can prove him to be not notable based on the above, NEVER revert my edits on that article.--BoguSlav 07:50, 21 April 2012 (UTC)
Thank you for calling me arrogant and uncivil. I wasn't, but you are acting that way. Gee wiz, last time I checked you are supposed to add an edit comment and add a reason why you revert. Sorry for "telling you what to do" even if it is Wikipedia policy.
I never reverted without discussion. I added a redirect with a long comment. You reverted without comment... i.e. you are the one who did "undo".
Hall is a composer and did numerous records, but WITH THE BAND. Read all of WP:MUSICBIO, especially at the end where it says, "Note that members of notable bands are redirected to the band's article, not given individual articles, unless they have demonstrated individual notability for activity independent of the band" You have shown NOTHING that says he was important outside of the band. Where is the proof?
Type "Amazon reliable source" in the search box. You will get a tonne of articles where people say it is unreliable. Amazon gets their information form other parties, including the people doing the selling, and does no fact checking. Adding a Amazon link is promotional because you are adding where to buy the album. Wikipedia is not about where to buy things.
Now, where is the proof he is notable outside the band? Bgwhite (talk) 08:52, 21 April 2012 (UTC)
Hahahaha. Ok. I see where your confusion is coming from. That note at the bottom says that people are "not given individual articles, unless they have demonstrated individual notability...", meaning that a band member does not get an article an unless he has shown that he's notable. Now, the first sentence states that "musician or ensemble... may be notable if it meets at least one of the following criteria". This means that if the person meets at least one of the 12 listed criteria, then that person is considered notable, and therefore, the Note at the end, wouldn't apply.
My claim is that Allan Hall meets criterion number 1 on the list, and is therefore notable. In order for you to assert that I have shown you NOTHING, you must first disprove MY arguments given above. You still have not shown me why Amazon is not a reliable source. I did the search you recommended, and got this: [3]. That shows me absolutely nothing as to why amazon is not notable as a source, and specifically the link that I posted for his album. Also, you have nothing to say about the fact that many featured articles use Amazon as reliable sources.
Now, he fits criterion number 1 as to the links I gave above, and many more I could still find.
Allan Hall is a songwriter, and therefore, co-author, of albums that won Dove Awards. (WP:COMPOSER. Criteria #1). Allan Hall has also produced numerous records with Curb Records. (Note: these two reason are separate from the requirement for musicians.
This is plenty of reasons to say that he's notable.
As to being civil, there is a fine line between suggesting something and discussing it, and showing up with a list of demands that I must follow.--BoguSlav 18:28, 21 April 2012 (UTC)
Now you are calling me a vandal in edit summaries. Nice, yet another bout of name calling. Arrogant, vandal, uncivil, snarky comment about me tutoring you. Um, you have yet to provide proof he is notable OUTSIDE THE BAND.... again OUTSIDE THE BAND. Interesting. Looks like you don't want to discuss because everything I've said is "irrelevant", calling names and don't want to provide proof. Bgwhite (talk) 00:35, 22 April 2012 (UTC)
I HAVE provided proof, and I AM discussing this. OUTSIDE THE BAND is not a wikipedia policy, as I have demonstrated above, and you can't simply wish it into existence. Everything I considered to be "irrelevent", I explained why it is so, and provided plenty of proof. Notice, that I am not simply asserting my position as you are, with no responses to what I said.--BoguSlav 03:56, 22 April 2012 (UTC)
  • Amazon is not a reliable source unless what needs to be sourced is a tracklist or a release date. The Dove awards are pretty much meaningless. That something shows up in Allmusic doesn't establish notability. I have restored the redirect. If you revert, the next step is probably a deletion discussion. Thank you. Drmies (talk) 03:04, 22 April 2012 (UTC)
I think that saying that Dove Awards are "meaningless" completely disregards a whole community, and an award with more than 40 years of trajectory. Plus it is very much a subjective comment. As for Alan Hall, I'm not that knowledgeable about his career to contribute a lot, but on the surface, I do see a certain individual notability in some of the sources provided. But like I said, I'm no expert on him or the band. I might contribute later, after I read more. Thief12 (talk) 15:48, 22 April 2012 (UTC)
Agreed. Since CCM out-sells Classical and Jazz combined in the US we might as well discount genre-specific awards for them. --Walter Görlitz (talk) 16:41, 22 April 2012 (UTC)
Amazon isn't a RS, but todayschristianmusic.com is and the other is somewhat trivial. However, he is a producer as well. This discussion should be taking place on the subject's talk page. The article as it stood before the redirect was added did not meet WP:BAND, but if it were improved with the references given would certainly meet guidelines. --Walter Görlitz (talk) 03:52, 22 April 2012 (UTC)
Sure, but that depends greatly on what reliable sources have to say. Drmies (talk) 04:38, 22 April 2012 (UTC)
Feel free to read them. They're linked above. --Walter Görlitz (talk) 05:10, 22 April 2012 (UTC)
There are two reliable sources given above... the other link is to a wikipage about a magazine. First source is a local news story. It is mostly an interview and talks mostly about the album. Typically, this wouldn't count towards GNG. The second does add information as it would help out filling bio details. However, it mostly talks about his "new" album that was released in 2004, in which the album went nowhere. So, there are two sources that are mostly about a no nothing album and nothing else. Almost any musician that had one album released would have the same refs and wouldn't get an article. There needs to be more independent, reliable sources about his work outside the band. Everything I've found deals with the band, but I'm not an expert in music, especially Christian music.
I wouldn't consider Dove Awards completely meaningless as stated above. However, I'm only aware of Dove Awards given to Hall as a member of the Band.
There are two other band members with articles. Melodie Crittenden left the group and has done quite a bit outside the band. The other is Todd Smith (singer). Smith appears to be in the same boat as Hall and looks very iffy. However, I haven't looked at him more closely... I deal with all new biography articles coming in every day, his isn't new and I wanted to deal with Hall first. So, again, please provide references. Bgwhite (talk) 06:52, 22 April 2012 (UTC)

Civility I was asked to comment by Boguslav. The tone of this discussion is unacceptable. Bgwhite, you've made claims which are demonstrably untrue (leaving edit summaries is not a policy) and rude (making ultimatums about deletion or redirecting.) The claim that Dove Awards are "meaningless" ignores the fact that they are important within the world of Contemporary Christian Music. Publications like Down Beat have much smaller circulations than Rolling Stone, but the audience for jazz is more narrow than rock and pop: the merits of a particular source are weighed in terms of their importance to that topic. Amazon is a completely legitimate source for information concerning Amazon's own ratings, but it is not appropriate for (e.g.) reproducing content from Allmusic--in those cases, refer to the original sources. It's clear that at the very least, this should be a redirect, but it is more important that editors act in a civil and respectful way. As best as I can tell, Boguslav's work on this article is intended to enhance the encyclopedia, even if it somehow deficient or inappropriate (and I have not seen sufficient evidence that it is.) —Justin (koavf)TCM 07:43, 22 April 2012 (UTC)

Suggestion I recommend userfying the potential content in a sandbox and then import it to the main article namespace when you can establish notability with four or more sources, including his production and songwriting credits. If you can generate content that is independent of the article on the band, then this is clearly a justifiable topic. —Justin (koavf)TCM 07:51, 22 April 2012 (UTC)
I agree that moving the content to a user page to improve is a good option. However, so would leaving the page in-place with a stub cat and refimprove tag. --Walter Görlitz (talk) 16:41, 22 April 2012 (UTC)
While I don't think in its current state this page would stay up long (even though it does meet the criteria), if it were improved even slightly it would be able to stand. This figure is undoubtedly minor even in the Christian scene, but has a number of Dove Awards and the like. Userfying so that it can be improved isn't a bad idea, needless to say. Toa Nidhiki05 17:22, 22 April 2012 (UTC)
I am well aware that Allan Hall is not nearly as big as, say Michael W. Smith or Amy Grant, but if wikipedia were reserved for only articles about the Michael Jackson's and Elvis Presley's, we'd never adequately cover any topic. I think editors are also downplaying the Christian music industry because they do not realize how churches work. For example, 3,000 people is considered a very good turn out for a political rally, but hundreds, if not thousands, of large churches across the country gather more than that every Sunday morning. Besides being a member of Selah, Allan Hall is also a producer, songwriter, arranger, engineer, and instrumentalist [4] for projects that have nothing to do with Selah. --BoguSlav 18:00, 22 April 2012 (UTC)
I'm not downplaying anything (besides the Dove awards, which seem to be much more credible since the last time I looked at them, a few years ago--but he didn't get that as an individual, did he?). And Bogu, there's a big gap filled with lots of notable artists between Allan Hall and Michael Jackson. But without secondary sources (and this does not bode well) all you can produce in an article is a list of credits, and that strikes me as unencyclopedic in many ways. Drmies (talk) 18:37, 22 April 2012 (UTC)
Clearly, this list of credits is not all that I have come up with (refer to other links given above). But I don't see why a list of credits is not a valid source of information. Unless you are suggesting that Allmusic.com is not a reliable source, I think that my link is perfectly valid. It demonstrates him as not only a singer and a musician in albums that have won the Dove Awards, but also as one of the main producers of those albums, which establishes his notablity completely separate of WP:BAND. The link also shows him to be an executive producer of another album in which he did not sing: the album by Monika Herzig, a notable artist in her own right.
I'm not surprised that you can't find much information about him online, as mainstream media does not typically cover Christian music, leaving it up to a few magazines (such as CCM Magazine and christianmusicmonthly), Christian radio stations, and church's websites. As for the link you just provided showing archived news articles about him, wikipedia policy typically considers media coverage to "bode well" as a reliable source, so I think if relevant material is found the link you provided, there would be nothing wrong in using it either.--BoguSlav 19:09, 22 April 2012 (UTC)
  • I'm going to copy this to the talk page of the redirect and answer there. By now we're well into an in-depth discussion and Justin's suggestion above is worth following. Drmies (talk) 22:11, 22 April 2012 (UTC)

UPL season statistics[edit]

Hi, Couldn't you wait just a little longer for me to finish my edits?? I could've lost a good half-hours' worth of work! Yes it did take me more than 10 minutes. I miscalculated, but you could be more considerate. The template says that this section is "actively" undergoing changes, meaning this someone is editing the page at that very moment... --BoguSlav 19:00, 19 May 2013 (UTC)

If you don't save your work environments in a sandbox then its not my problem. Secondly, If you are going to put assists in the article for this season then be prepared to do it for the previous twenty seasons or it will get deleted. And thirdly, WP is not WP:NOTSTATSBOOK. Brudder Andrusha (talk) 19:52, 19 May 2013 (UTC)
Assists have been discussed in WP:FOOTY and the consensus that they are an unnecessary statistic. I am not implying ownership, but implying consistancy. There are 20 odd seasons of Ukrainian Premier League and all should be similar in content. You bring an addition to the article in the 29th round and you expect that one should agree on its content. Not so quick my fly-by-night contributor. You seem to impose that just because you gave an addition to the article, that it has a reference and that because you made it the information is worthy of inclusion. I think you need to take your civility and review it. Also you chose a fine time to do you inclusion right after the completion of games.Brudder Andrusha (talk) 21:24, 19 May 2013 (UTC)

Advice[edit]

From Chris the speller: "But the section "Influences ..." seems to be largely a rehash/condensation of material presented earlier. That section needs to be redone and greatly reduced." I'll be calling two editors this week to see what they think. Krenakarore TK 14:49, 2 July 2013 (UTC)

I just think it seems that way because of the way it's presented. It needs be redone, along with a lot of more material that I plan to add to the article.--BoguSlav 15:34, 2 July 2013 (UTC)
I got in contact with Jiulliard School and asked for Mrs. Juliana Osinchuk's doctoral thesis about Kosenko's life and work, which interests me badly for I'm now researching his compositions. Please, see my sandbox ! There's also a book in the National Library here in Prague, which I intend to copy, though it seems to be in Ukrainian. As for adding more info to the article, I think we could save this for FA status. About Chris' advice, I think he's right. We'll have to do it sooner or later. It's just trimming redundancies !
PS:You have Paypal ? Krenakarore TK 16:40, 2 July 2013 (UTC)
I'm not sure what you mean by "this" when you say "I think we should save this for FA status." Do you mean that we should skip GA review and go straight for FA status, or that I should add this information only after this article becomes a good article?
As for the piano influences and performances section, I think maybe dividing it up will be helpful, one with influences and another with performances, and of course, some trimming down as well. Otherwise, it truly does seem to be a summary of what was previously stated.--BoguSlav 17:55, 2 July 2013 (UTC)
That's right, a journey begins with the first step. We add more info after GA status, taking it then to FA status later (It's just like playing a song. We begin slowly, then built it up to a "gran finale") ! Yes, we could split influences and performances section in two. It's ok. Let's see how it goes ! Krenakarore TK 20:50, 2 July 2013 (UTC)
From ColonelHenry, a high-profile wikipedian: "Received your message regarding a copy-edit and review of the Kosenko article as you prepare to bring it to GA status. As a pianist myself, I'm rather familiar with Kosenko's life and work, so I'll be glad to do so." Believe me, he's the one !!! Please, give him room this weekend as he knows what to do. He'll soon point another editor with whom he works best. As for the List of compositions by Viktor Kosenko, the table's being changed. Another thing, I have found a soprano in Krakow who's right in the middle of her doctoral thesis on Kosenko's life and works ! Regards, Krenakarore TK 16:32, 5 July 2013 (UTC)
Can you find references for the "Musical legacy" section? I've haven't encountered that information in my research and having brought another article to GA status, I know the article won't pass unless everything is referenced. Thanks, BoguSlav 17:13, 5 July 2013 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done The good thing about researching, is that I keep finding more and more and more...:) ! Krenakarore TK 18:45, 6 July 2013 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── I haven't seen you around for quite a while. Colonel Henry is quite busy with his FA list, but promised to join us at the very D moment. Meanwhile I thought about calling somebody else to copy-ed and review the article (Cassianto). I have scanned the book for you already. It's ready to be uploaded to a Google cloud. More... I badly need your help to translate some titles of Kosenko's compositions that I have found since we spoke last. They're at the bottom of my sandbox. I would like to take that to FLC, with your help of course (no need to remind you that Kosenko's compositions have never been catalogued in such a way. It's already the most comprehensible list of Kosenko's compositions ever, even if still incomplete...:) ! I want to create this article, the rest is for me history) !

Ensemble performances in Kosenko[edit]

Hi, it feels good that you're back ! Cassianto will return to Kosenko this week, I have already spoken with him. He asked me if I could expand thing a bit, which you already did, thanks, and also elaborate which pieces by Mikhail Glinka, Anton Rubinstein, etc, were performed by Kosenko in the "Ensemble performances" section. Maybe you can find this info in the book. Krenakarore TK 08:37, 11 August 2013 (UTC)

Hi, I haven't seen you round for a while. Let's move on to the next stage. The peer review is over now. I would like you to make the GAN of Kosenko this time once you have the info (book) in hour hands. I'll be following you on the issues yet to be addressed to it. It'll be easier now that most of the gaps have been filled in. Krenakarore TK 02:21, 23 August 2013 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of 2009 Channel One Cup (football)[edit]

Non-notable friendly competition, not significantly covered in reliable sources

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

February 2014[edit]

Information icon Please do not add or change content, as you did to Yevhen Konoplyanka, without verifying it by citing a reliable source. Please review the guidelines at Wikipedia:Citing sources and take this opportunity to add references to the article. Thank you. GiantSnowman 19:55, 3 February 2014 (UTC)

...and I would advise you to familiarize yourself with WP:BLP before continuing with your reckless editing. Do not re-add uncited, challenged material to a biography of a living person, simple as that. GiantSnowman 20:24, 3 February 2014 (UTC)
Why are you bringing WP:LIBEL into this? I have asked you to read WP:BLP, an incredibly important policy but one which you seem completely ignorant of. "Contentious material about living persons (or, in some cases, recently deceased) that is unsourced or poorly sourced – whether the material is negative, positive, neutral, or just questionable – should be removed immediately and without waiting for discussion." That is what I have done, and by re-adding it three times your editing is becoming increasingly disruptive. If it continues, you might be blocked from editing. GiantSnowman 09:02, 4 February 2014 (UTC)
Oh, and as a side point, assists should not be included in the career statistics table, per consensus at WT:FOOTBALL. GiantSnowman 09:04, 4 February 2014 (UTC)
Oh boy, a number of issues here. Firstly, libel/LIBEL has nothing to do with it. As BLP says - in fact you have quoted it back at me - any unreferenced material can be challenged and removed. That is what I have done, and you should never have re-added it. I don't know if/why people have made the stats up, but with no sources presented to enable me to verify, I have erred on the side of caution and removed it. Secondly, you state that I am "not willing to have a reasonable objective discussion" and you mention my "refusal to discuss" - I'm pretty sure I have been discussing this with you for the past few days, so no idea where you got that idea from. Thirdly, I have not threatened to block you. I have stated that you might be blocked if you continue to edit disruptively. Fourthly, by all means raise this at a noticeboard - I have already raised it at WP:BLPN - but if you do so, and continue with your false accusations of bullying/abusing power, then you might want to read WP:BOOMERANG before you do.
As for the assists side-issue, plenty of consenus here as reflected in our MOS here. GiantSnowman 12:40, 5 February 2014 (UTC)
You do know that you could have avoided all this by introducing a reliable source, don't you? I've never stated my opinion was the correct one, or more important, or whatever. As for assists, WP:CONSENSUS is WP:NOTAVOTE; you say there was no consensus, I disagree, but with either of those two outcomes the results are the same - the status quo remains the same and the MOS remains unchanged. GiantSnowman 18:58, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Looks like somebody else beat you to it...problem solved. GiantSnowman 19:05, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

I'm sure you're acquainted with 3RR...[edit]

But as a reminder, the content dispute at Yevhen Konoplyanka is not one of the exempted reasons to revert in the WP:3RR policy. Rather than edit war, please take your concerns to the talk page to build consensus. —C.Fred (talk) 21:24, 3 February 2014 (UTC)

Please stop attacking other editors, as you did on User_talk:GiantSnowman. If you continue, you may be blocked from editing Wikipedia. Your personal attacks on GiantSnowman are not in the spirit of our Wikipedia community. Please AGF and stop with the disruptive questioning. Since you most likely will want a more specific example:"In that case, I wonder how you became an administrator. Additionally, now that you are informed of this policy and choose to break it, I wonder why are still an administrator.-" is a great example of not AGF and a personal attack.

Mela[edit]

I started another artist from Ukraine, Mela Tenenbaum. She left for the US long ago, but perhaps you can find something about her early time, or simply the name. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 19:10, 17 September 2014 (UTC)

I found something right here, Dmitri Klebanov, unfortunately without references. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 23:35, 18 September 2014 (UTC)

Personal insult[edit]

Don't leave personal insults like you did at my talk page. What you did was highly insulting. You clearly don't have a clue on what was going on. You clearly haven't read ALL the talk pages. You clearly didn't read them reporting me to ANI. You clearly didn't see them calling me a racist. You clearly didn't see them saying I wrote insults about them on the article's talk page... I've never edited on the article's talk page. You didn't see me "insulting" them because I wrote, "Your list that you create has accessibility issues for the blind."... They said I was calling them "blind". You didn't see them insulting others. Not to mention all the other "nice" things they said. This was all before my second message. They are NOT here to build an encyclopedia. I have never been so insulted on Wikipedia. Looking on your talk page, you have done the same with other editors (ie GiantSnowman) and were told to stop. Never talk to me again. Bgwhite (talk) 09:53, 27 December 2014 (UTC)

Hi, Bgwhite. Way to WP:AGF. Please WP:Stay cool. Based on your reaction, you have clearly not understood what I have said. As I mentioned, the user WAS RIGHTFULLY blocked because of the multiple violations (such as personal attacks) that they did, but it seems to me that these were the result of an escalation of the conflict, with a bunch of "in the heat of the moment" kind of situations. I concluded that the user was originally WP:HERE based on [5], among other edits, which looked like genuine attempts to improve the WP:Content of Wikipedia.
The only reason I actually WROTE on your talk page was because of this "If I have erred, don't hesitate to tell me, but being rude will get you nowhere." You clearly don't mean this if this is your reaction. I think you have erred in your initial approach to a new user (who we both agree is in the wrong), which should be from an EDUCATIONAL rather than COMMANDING attitude. As for this, "What you did was highly insulting", "Never talk to me again", please keep your temper. I am not associated with the user in any way, but I could understand how a user could get frustrated and call you names after you lash out at them as you did to me.
I'm sorry that this insulted you. Perhaps you are right. I did not read ALL of the discussions. I am acquainted with the discussion fairly well, though I must admit I hadn't seen the WP:ANI. Perhaps I should have also used softer language (i.e. "completely unacceptable"). However, I am NOT OK with your reaction or the tone of your discussion. I can understand that the conflict with the user is still fresh, but don't transfer that anger on me. I tried to make it perfectly clear that this is not a WP:PERSONAL attack. However, it appears that I received a personal attack in return. Please stay WP:Civil. Particularly, Try not to get too intense. Passion can be misread as aggression, so take great care to avoid the appearance of being heavy-handed or bossy.
Again, I have not taken the user's side, but I believe that your initial approach to the newbie could be improved. Please assume good faith and be polite.--BoguSlav 10:57, 27 December 2014 (UTC)
Let's see if you can get it... Somebody calls you a racist, stupid and all sorts of niceties. A second person comes in, doesn't know what has happened and calls you out for offending the person that said you are a racist, you too would be insulted. BTW, I was indirectly taken to ANI again by the same idiot. What he wrote was so bad, another admin deleted it from my talk page.
As you didn't read the messages before you leveled your insults, lets recap what the idiot found that I did to "offend" him.
  1. Please do not use HTML, use wikicode. We don't edit HTML pages. Your list that you create has accessibility issues for the blind. Do you think this is rude? I said please and explained why. Come on is it? The idiot said, "Was that just a hyperbolic insult?".
  2. After he left his ~8 messages in a span of two hours, he was offended because I didn't write back. Never mind it was 4:00am in the morning and I was sleeping. " If there won't be a response I'll consider this a drive-by. Or article jacking." and "Again you chose to make the edits without responding. And I see that you get into warring positions outside of any involvement you have with articles. This my be done for blocking editors from articles you don't prefer. I am making a request for mediation before you entrap. His mediation was ANI.
  3. On removing the images, which I said, The very end section currently serves no purpose. The images serve no purpose. See WP:GALLERY for when to use a gallery. As it currently stands, there shouldn't be a gallery in the article and only inline images.. He was offended by this, "Now I recall being confused as to why a couple of days ago the bottom 1/4 of the page had been deleted. I put a fix because I thought I had made a mistake in editing. Yet, you take it as a personal matter knowing you're making these type of changes undercover which is bad form."
  4. What was the reason he took me to ANI, Comments:Only has discussions on his personal page. But with me he does not answer period. He doesn't make any reference to changes he makes. These things just disappear. Or the formatting is deleted. And this is a major restructuring. I thought I was making mistakes in editing. All of a sudden I'm attacked verbally early this morning about everything. He does this with others to get them blocked. I'm thinking it has to do with subject matter he doesn't like. In addition now I recall that the first time I was in TALK on the article he came along and attacked me verbally when I suggested the infobox, but has since deleted that entry. I've never edited on the article's talk page.
Taken to ANI twice, over 10 admins have seen what has gone including other editors and only YOU and the idiot has taken offense to what I wrote. You say AGF and you didn't assume it yourself. You attacked without reading what actually happened. Do you know understand why I'm pissed? Bgwhite (talk) 06:54, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
Sorry to step on your toes. Upon further analysis, the guy IS an idiot and a liar. There is no disagreement on this point, and as I have said (twice), this guy deserved to be blocked. However, he was definitely lost on quite a few wiki policies. My first approach would have been reverting, then placing an educational notice on his talk page about WP:MOS and WP:OWN. After this, all of my actions would have probably matched yours. IMO, it comes off as patronizing for any user if another user shows up and reverts your work and then tells you what you need to do (especially a newbie). When I was new, I was ready to argue my point, but I needed the links to the policy pages to convince me what was the correct way to do things on Wikipedia. Users on Wikipedia come here with all sorts of personalities. The initial impression of a user is what often determines the tone of the rest of the conversation, regardless of your intentions. That's why I, and wiki guidelines, suggest that one should initially address a user with an educational approach, citing policy, rather than a commanding approach.
You don't have to accept my perspective. You had an invitation on your talk page and I took it, fully not expecting you to continue the argument (with that user) on me. I assumed good faith from the beginning, telling you that I don't take the user's side and I had a suggestion for dealing with these situations. Then I explained my reasoning, qualifying myself along the way. Imagine if I responded to you in the same spirit that you responded to me. These two quotes from WP:Civil come to mind "Even if you're offended, be as calm and reasonable as possible in your response. Until there is clear evidence to the contrary, assume that the offense was unintended." and "Avoid editing while you're in a bad mood". I stand corrected on not knowing the situation as well as you do. I've stated multiple times that I wasn't here to offend, but you have chosen to completely ignore this. I had a simple suggestion. Take or leave it.--BoguSlav 18:20, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
