The page Dubrovin Stanislav should be changed to Stanislav Dubrovin. Dubrovin is the surname and Stanislav is the given name. The reversed order reflects a common usage in some European reference works, but is not proper format for the English Wikipedia. EricWR (talk) 03:36, 3 December 2010 (UTC)

August 2011[edit]

Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. Before saving your changes to an article, please provide an edit summary, which you forgot to do before saving your recent edit to Evangelical Lutheran Church of Lithuania. Doing so helps everyone understand the intention of your edit (and prevents legitimate edits from being mistaken for vandalism). It is also helpful to users reading the edit history of the page. Thank you. Cognate247 (talk) 01:52, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

Opting in to VisualEditor[edit]

As you may know, VisualEditor ("Edit beta") is currently available on the English Wikipedia only for registered editors who choose to enable it. Since you have made 50 or more edits with VisualEditor this year, I want to make sure that you know that you can enable VisualEditor (if you haven't already done so) by going to your preferences and choosing the item, "Enable the visual editor. It will be available in the following namespaces: $1". This will give you the option of using VisualEditor on articles and userpages when you want to, and give you the opportunity to spot changes in the interface and suggest improvements. We value your feedback, whether positive or negative, about using VisualEditor, at Wikipedia:VisualEditor/Feedback. Thank you, Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 20:20, 11 October 2013 (UTC)

BLP categories[edit]

Per WP:BLPCAT, please do not add religious categories to people unless doing so complies with the guideline: "Categories regarding religious beliefs or sexual orientation should not be used unless the subject has publicly self-identified with the belief or orientation in question, and the subject's beliefs or sexual orientation are relevant to their public life or notability, according to reliable published sources."

Interview?[edit]

Hi,

I'm a reporter with a big Canadian daily newspaper. You removed an error from an entry on Lithuanian mythological figures - but not before it was cited by a BBC journalist in a book on the history of the world.

I was just wondering where you are editing from, how often you edit Wiki entries and how you became an expert on Lithuanian gods.

My email is gvendeville@thestar.ca . Thanks, Geoff.
