Miana, Turkmenistan[edit]

Hi, can you find the Russian for this and some old info in Russian? Also there's a river I've asked Ymblanter about! Hope you're well.♦ Dr. Blofeld 12:13, 9 October 2016 (UTC)

I doubt I'll have anything to that level of obscurity for a non-Russian location. Anyway, I'm on the road right now, but I'll check when I get back home. Cheers,—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); October 9, 2016; 17:09 (UTC)
It's quite a large village, not like it's a tiny selo!♦ Dr. Blofeld 14:26, 11 October 2016 (UTC)
I understand, but it's in Turkmenistan :) I only have a couple books dealing with Turkmenistan—and neither one mentions Miana. Not finding anything useful online either—Google books has some odd bits here and there (in Russian), but all those books are in snippet view and not usable for adding anything to the article...—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); October 11, 2016; 14:42 (UTC)

Перевод или транслит[edit]

Здравствуйте. Помнится было где-то написано что в случаях названий песней и альбомов (современных), не используется дословный перевод с русского, а транслитерация. Я про эту правку. Наверное нужно транслит названии, а в скобках добавить оригинал и перевод. --XXN, 08:14, 12 October 2016 (UTC)

Вы совершенно правы. Если только музыкальное произведение официально не выходит на англоговорящем рынке (в коем случае используется название, под которым оно на этом рынке вышло), употребляется транслитерация (к которой при желании можно добавить дословный перевод, но только вдобавок, а не вместо). Соответствующее правило находится тут: WP:TRANSLITERATE ([n]ames not originally in a Latin alphabet, such as... Russian names, must be transliterated).—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); October 12, 2016; 13:01 (UTC) 13:01, 12 October 2016 (UTC)

Kartaly[edit]

Just because I'm interested in the example you gave of a combined "city-county" administrative division, I went to look at the pages for Kartaly town and Kartalinsky District. While the district page seems to show that both the town and district are one administrative division (The Town of Kartaly and Kartalinsky District), the page for the town, itself, seems to show (both on the associated map and in the writing) or at least imply that Kartaly town is administratively independent of Kartalinsky District. Is this a mistake on the town's page, or am I not reading it correctly? It doesn't specifically state that Kartaly town is of "district significance" but it does almost seem to imply that the town is some kind of additional level of administration (" it is incorporated within Kartalinsky District as the Town of Kartaly").

So, my question is whether they are two seperate administrative divisions, and if not, how would you suggest making the town's page more definitive/clear? In my mind, if it's only one administrative divisions, I'd do like the district page did and give the full name of the administrative town to avoid this confusion. --Criticalthinker (talk) 07:58, 14 October 2016 (UTC)

Nevermind. I figured it out. The Virginia example I gave for "independent cities" are actually more akin cities of oblast significance since they are on the same level as counties (districts). In most of the rest of the United States most urban settlements regardless of size would be equivalent cities of district significance since they are almost always subordinate to the counties in which they reside. And, again, it is rare for any city outside of Virginia to be its own administrative division. Urban settlements almost always only have a municipal status if even that. As to the example above of Kartalinsky District and Kartaly town, it does not appear to be analogous to a combined "city-county" which is a combined and single administrative division. It appears that Kartaly town is actually a subordinate lower-level administrative division (a town of district significance) of the The Town of Kartaly and Kartalinsky District. An American "city-county" can not have administrative divisions of its own. In a "city-county" the admistrative division is essentially a city raised to the administrative level of a county.
I guess to put it more simply, it seems that the biggest difference between local administration in the United States and Russia is that in Russia, you guys have multiple lower-level administrative divisions below the district level. In the United States, there is is rarely anything under the district (county) level. Some states have administrative "townships" which would match up with something like a "town of district significance" in Russia, but this administrative division doesn't exist in most states. So, basically, settlements in the United States are usually only defined at the municipal layer of government, whereas in Russia, settlements usually have both their own associated administrative division and municipal local government; I guess this means the federal government has a lot more control over settlements than in the United States. The United States Constitution doesn't mention municipal government and it's totally left up to the states to decide if they want it or not (i.e. Hawaii, for instance, doesn't have municipal divisions, only administrative counties as their local governments). The federal governments recognizes municipal governments, but have no legal oversight or control of them as it appears the Russian government does over Russian municipalities (mostly through corresponding administrative divisions), indirectly. --Criticalthinker (talk) 10:01, 14 October 2016 (UTC)

Asian 10,000 Challenge invite[edit]

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Asia/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge and Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like South East Asia, Japan/China or India etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. At some stage we hope to run some contests to benefit Asian content, a destubathon perhaps, aimed at reducing the stub count would be a good place to start, based on the current Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon which has produced near 200 articles in just three days. If you would like to see this happening for Asia, and see potential in this attracting more interest and editors for the country/countries you work on please sign up and being contributing to the challenge! This is a way we can target every country of Asia, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant! Thank you. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 02:02, 20 October 2016 (UTC)

Your edit on Crimean Federal District[edit]

Hi,

I have reverted your edit on aforementioned article because Russia uses date, month, year not month, date, year. The Ninja5 Empire (Talk) 03:46, 1 November 2016 (UTC)

Hi, Jack! I appreciate what you were trying to do, but you are not interpreting the guidelines correctly. What date format Russia or Ukraine uses has absolutely no bearing on what date format should be used in the articles in this English Wikipedia (if it did, we'd be forced to use the yyyymmdd format in the articles about Japan and the Hebrew calendar in the articles about Israel). The applicable guideline here is WP:DATERET, which mandates using national formats only in articles with strong national ties to a topic, with the aforementioned ties only being relevant when the nation in question is an Anglophone country. In short, mdy format is to be used in the US-specific articles, dmy format is to be used in the Commonwealth-specific articles, and everything else is fair game, with the choice made by the first major contributor being the default. Since the article in question was created in March 2014 with an mdy date, that's the format that's to be used there from now on (unless the UK decides to annex Crimea at some point :)). I've restored the original version. Please don't hesitate to contact me again if you need further clarifications. Cheers,—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); November 1, 2016; 13:09 (UTC)
I do see other articles with said format however. The Ninja5 Empire (Talk) 01:44, 2 November 2016 (UTC)
And that is fine. There is no requirement for the articles specific to one country to share the same date format; the only requirement is that the same date format is consistently adhered to within any one given article. If you read WP:MOSDATE in its entirety (it spans several subsections), it should clear up a lot of similar questions you might have. Cheers,—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); November 2, 2016; 02:12 (UTC)

Europe 10,000 Challenge invite[edit]

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Europe/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like Germany, Italy, the Benelux countries, Iberian Peninsula, Romania, Slovenia etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. If you would like to see masses of articles being improved for Europe and your specialist country like Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon, sign up today and once the challenge starts a contest can be organized. This is a way we can target every country of Europe, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant and also sign under any country sub challenge on the page that you might contribute to!

Two-Factor Authentication now available for admins[edit]

Hello,

Please note that TOTP based two-factor authentication is now available for all administrators. In light of the recent compromised accounts, you are encouraged to add this additional layer of security to your account. It may be enabled on your preferences page in the "User profile" tab under the "Basic information" section. For basic instructions on how to enable two-factor authentication, please see the developing help page for additional information. Important: Be sure to record the two-factor authentication key and the single use keys. If you lose your two factor authentication and do not have the keys, it's possible that your account will not be recoverable. Furthermore, you are encouraged to utilize a unique password and two-factor authentication for the email account associated with your Wikimedia account. This measure will assist in safeguarding your account from malicious password resets. Comments, questions, and concerns may be directed to the thread on the administrators' noticeboard.

A new user right for New Page Patrollers[edit]

Hi Ezhiki.

A new user group, New Page Reviewer, has been created in a move to greatly improve the standard of new page patrolling. The user right can be granted by any admin at PERM. It is highly recommended that admins look beyond the simple numerical threshold and satisfy themselves that the candidates have the required skills of communication and an advanced knowledge of notability and deletion. Admins are automatically included in this user right.

It is anticipated that this user right will significantly reduce the work load of admins who patrol the performance of the patrollers. However,due to the complexity of the rollout, some rights may have been accorded that may later need to be withdrawn, so some help will still be needed to some extent when discovering wrongly applied deletion tags or inappropriate pages that escape the attention of less experienced reviewers, and above all, hasty and bitey tagging for maintenance. User warnings are available here but very often a friendly custom message works best.

If you have any questions about this user right, don't hesitate to join us at WT:NPR. (Sent to all admins).MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 13:47, 15 November 2016 (UTC)

Gulch Hvoschevataya[edit]

Gulch is probably OR, a Canadian word. What is your opinion?Xx236 (talk) 11:15, 21 December 2016 (UTC)

I don't think OR concerns apply here. This kind of terms are never easy to translate, and there doesn't seem to be a common English name for this entity. "Gulch" seems to be an OK choice as far as translations go (and I don't think it's strictly Canadian; cf. Buckskin Gulch), although personally I would have used "valley" here, or some such term. The proper part of the name needs to be changed to "Khvoshchevataya" per WP:RUS, but for "балка" any reasonable translation would work, including "gulch". Thoughts?—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); December 21, 2016; 16:34 (UTC)
In another article of the same author I translated it earlier today as "ravine" (I happen to know how they look like, since I visited the area once), but I am not 100% sure this is the most appropriate word.--Ymblanter (talk) 16:43, 21 December 2016 (UTC)
If I had known for sure what they look like, I would have used "ravine", too :) I was only suggesting to use "valley" as it's an accurate enough generic term, but it might not always be the best choice, of course. "Gulch", to me at least, seems like another acceptable generic term.—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); December 21, 2016; 16:47 (UTC)

Happy Holidays![edit]

Christmas bells.png Happy Holidays!
Hey old friend! I'm glad to see you're still around. I'm still doing some work on WPRU. I noticed we've got a bunch of high quality articles on Russian nature reserves. Now, with Trump coming into office, hopefully we'll see an end to the sanctions and to the standoffish approach the US Gov has had toward Russia for the past 8 years. No more Hillary Clinton or Samantha Power. That's a step forward in itself. I'd like to see a close partnership between the US and Russia. Anyways, I wish you and yours a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. 100 years since the Revolution! One of my life goals is to pay a long visit to Russia; to see Petersburg, Moscow, and especially Stalingrad, where I can look up in awe at Родина-мать зовёт!, one of the wonders of the modern world IMHO. Take care. lNeverCry 02:38, 24 December 2016 (UTC)
Hey, man, glad to see you around as well! Hope the holiday season is treating you well; с наступающим! :) Nature reserves, for those you can thank User:Every-leaf-that-trembles, who's been doing an absolutely amazing job in that area.
Also, I didn't realize you are a Trump fan :) Me, I'm all for normalizing the US-Russia relationships, but I'd rather it being a result of someone decent taking over the helm in Russia instead of a result of President Pussygrabber and President 142% making out in public. Somehow having a president who speaks truth only by accident makes the next four years look rather bleak... but that's me, an old libtard :)
Anyway, I do hope your plans to visit Russia come to fruition. The country is a marvelous place to visit, regardless of what kind of mediocrity is ru[i|n]ning it. And if you can find time to fit a trip on the Trans-Siberian Railway in between of all other things you want to do, I promise you won't regret it (my not-so-hidden agenda, of course, if for you to be able to experience Siberia and my native Far East, which are absolutely unlike the rest of the country).

Request for Comments on use of certain files not copyrighted in the US[edit]

Hello,

There is an ongoing discussion about the use of files on Wikipedia that are not protected by copyright in the US because there is no copyright relations between the US and the country of publication. You commented in a 2012 discussion on the same topic that resulted in no consensus. You are invited to share your views in the ongoing discussion. AHeneen (talk) 21:16, 3 January 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for the pointer on CommonsCat handling[edit]

Thanks, I didn't realize that Wikidata was the place to put commons categories. I'm very impressed with the infrastructure you've built on the Russian Districts (with ymblanter and others); if I'm doing anything that breaks your programming or format, please let me know. I've been trying to fill in missing citations and reference links as I see on the list of WikiProject Russia Articles for Cleanup. Mostly this is to get a better feeling for the variety of districts as I write more extented geography/history/economy sections. Thanks again. Every-leaf-that-trembles (talk) 22:37, 5 January 2017 (UTC)

You have no idea how glad I am that you are finding the infrastructure useful :) That was the whole idea—to have a skeleton in place so folks who want to contribute can start growing meat on it right away, instead of first having to figure out how to best lay everything out and the intricacies of formatting (and inevitably doing it inconsistently across different articles) and then running out of steam when it comes to adding actual content. You, Yaroslav, Fenix down, and others are the real stars of this show. I wish I could start contributing more content myself, but real-life circumstances keep interfering, so I'm happy that at least my gnoming and morlocking around are of some benefit to y'all :)
And don't worry too much about breaking anything. I have a semi-random beat schedule to check back on everything on my watchlist, so if anything isn't quite right, I'll catch it eventually. I also normally leave a comment in the edit summary if anything needs to be pointed out, so as long as you have the articles you worked on on your watchlist, they should pop up for you. And of course, if there's anything you want me to look at specifically, just let me know. Cheers,—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); January 6, 2017; 16:33 (UTC)
I'm happy to help. Is there a particular talk page that is used for communicating "to do" items among the editors working on Russian districts? Also, is there a checklist of standards for a "start" quality assessment? I would think elevating a district article above "stub" is a matter of adding sections on geography, history, governmental sub-units, and economy to the basic layout. For example, it appears to me that Kholmogorsky District should be at least a "start", but is marked as "stub". (PS, I had to look up "morlock"; not sure which of the disambiguations to follow). Every-leaf-that-trembles (talk) 22:01, 10 January 2017 (UTC)
All articles on the districts I worked on are (at least) start-class, though some of them can be still classified as stubs. I just updated the talk page of Kholmogorsky District, thanks for pointing it out.--Ymblanter (talk) 12:08, 11 January 2017 (UTC)
@Ymblanter: As an exercise, I upgraded the assessment for Talk:Konoshsky District, with comments on my use of the criteria. If you get a chance, could you check to see if I did this correctly; I've never done an assessment before. I can do assessments on Russian district articles as I'm on them frequently. I see for example, that several of the Arkhangelsk articles are still marked Stub, and should be Start or C. Every-leaf-that-trembles (talk) 16:34, 11 January 2017 (UTC)
We don't really have well-defined assessment criteria in place. Most, if not all, assessments have been done by the seat of pants, so if you feel any one of them should be upgraded (or downgraded), feel free to do it. The whole assessment system is only used to get a rough estimate of the amount of work we have, so an occasional mismatch isn't going to break anything. And yes, adding a section or two to a stub is normally all it takes to elevate it to Start status.
As for communicating to-do items, the best place would be WT:RUSSIA. Don't expect crowds of contributors pitching in after you ask anything, though :) Oftentimes me and Yaroslav are the only ones around, but it's still better to use the project page than our talk pages since you never know when someone else decides to comment. You can also utilize taskforce talk pages (such as WT:WikiProject Russia/Human geography of Russia task force), but those are seen by even fewer people than the main project's.—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); January 11, 2017; 16:51 (UTC)

Поддерживает ли система категорий деление на гражданство и этническую принадлежность?[edit]

Приветствую! Я к вам несколько раз обращался, спасибо за помощь в предыдущие разы, последний из которых был, получается, в 2013.)) Есть новая проблема, которая на самом деле совсем не новая и широко известная.)) Не могли бы вы помочь с категориями People of Russia (как раз я когда-то создал и назвал так же, как было на Викискладе, а там категория создана ещё в 2005 году) и Russian people? Я не так часто редактирую в последнее время, но сейчас наткнулся на правки участницы-администратора, которые завершают объединение двух разных, но пересекающихся понятий, в одну категорию. Она указывает, что система категорий в англовики не поддерживает такое разделение. Я плохо знаком с англовики, но разве так может быть? Вижу, что вполне нормально существует вот такая категория этнических курдов с разными гражданствами. Возможно, она не поняла о чём речь, а я вряд ли в таком случае смогу объяснить. По крайней мере на Викискладе и, например, немецкой Википедии технических проблем нет, и существуют две разных категории (commons:Category:People of Russia/commons:Category:Russians и de:Kategorie:Person (Russland)/de:Kategorie:Russe). Есть также статьи de:Russländisch/de:Russen. Что можно сделать? Могут ли в англовики существовать эти две категории или как по-другому назвать категории, чтобы разделить понятия? Наверняка уже были похожие темы и прецеденты, кроме курдов, британцев и т.д. Если возможно, поправьте, пожалуйста, описания категорий, чтобы было точно понятно о чём они, а то, мягко говоря, уж очень страдает точность, если загнать в одну категорию всех этнических русских и граждан России всех этнических групп. --TarzanASG (talk) 02:51, 24 January 2017 (UTC)

Я подобных прецедентов не припоминаю, но, если не ошибаюсь, в en_wiki для отдельных людей существуют только категории по нац. принадлежности, но не по стране проживания. Т.е. русские включаются в категорию Category:Russian people, татары — в категорию Category:Tatar people, удмурты — в Category:Udmurt people и т.д. и т.п. Все эти категории затем включаются (или по крайней мере должны включаться) в Category:Ethnic groups in Russia, и уже через эту категорию становится как бы понятно, кто такие "people in Russia". В de_wiki, по-видимому, подход другой. Насчёт курдов, это всё-таки нетипичная ситуация, поскольку своей страны у курдов нет.
Но я с вами согласен, что уравнивать термины "Russian people" и "people of Russia" не вполне корректно, поэтому перенаправил "People of Russia" на "Ethnic groups in Russia". Если будут возражения, дискуссию можно продолжить.—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); January 25, 2017; 17:48 (UTC)
Спасибо за перенаправление перенаправления, но это не единственная проблема. Сейчас вижу такую ситуацию. Две категории с многими этническими группами такие как Russian people by ethnic or national origin и Ethnic groups in Russia входят в категорию Russian people, которая входит в Slavic people by nationality. Проблема в том, что в этом конкретном виде эта цепочка, кажется, неверна. Надо бы как-то переформатировать и другие категории, а также чтобы было правильное соответствие Викискладу и Викиданным. Просто удалить Russian people из категории Slavic people by nationality тоже нельзя, т.к. надо добавить туда что-то взамен, написанное на английском языке. Я не знаю как именно это сделать, как именно назвать, чтобы это было очевидно другим участникам английской Википедии и не было возражений как сейчас с категорией People of Russia. Не могли бы вы уделить внимание этому вопросу, создать/отредактировать такие категории? На эти категории всё-таки "нанизываются" все остальные. Если на Викискладе более-менее понятные категории (commons:Category:People of Russia, commons:Category:Russians by country, commons:Category:Tatar people by country и так далее), то, наверное, это можно сделать и в англовики. Сейчас из-за Викиданных все неточности всё равно вылезут, встретятся вместе и превратятся в ошибки в других проектах. Что касается своей страны, то, кажется, она не должна мешать "разложить всё по полочкам". Несмотря на то, что у народа хань своя страна есть, в английском разделе, как я сейчас понял, в одну кучу всё не смешивается. Есть категория об этнической группе Han Chinese, а есть о населении Китая Chinese people, а также есть отдельное название Хуацяо для разных граждан Китая, живущих за границей. Хотя если говорить о положении де-юре, то всё может быть ещё сложнее с определением есть ли своя страна. По конституции государство принадлежит гражданской нации под названием "многонациональный народ России". Там же говорится и о том, что "каждый вправе определять и указывать свою национальную принадлежность, и никто не может быть принужден к определению и указанию своей национальной принадлежности". Есть даже официальные результаты переписи населения, согласно которой в РФ проживают, платят налоги и голосуют на выборах граждане, которые указывают свою этническую принадлежность как джедаи, гномы, лешие, орки, гоблины, хоббиты, полудницы, эльфы, толкинисты, марсиане и т.д. Но это совершенно отдельный важный вопрос, о нём не сейчас.)) --TarzanASG (talk) 21:25, 25 January 2017 (UTC)

Weinberg and Wrangel, but "Libknekht"[edit]

Hi,

Why is Mieczysław Weinberg (not Vaynberg), Ferdinand von Wrangel and Wrangel Island (not Vrangel), but Imeni Karla Libknekhta (not Liebknechta)? --Christmas Island (talk) 20:57, 24 February 2017 (UTC)

Because Wrangel Island is an established name in the English literature, and we just use it; on the other side, Imeni Karla Libknekhta does not have an established English name, and we just romanize it according to WP:RUS.--Ymblanter (talk) 01:17, 25 February 2017 (UTC)
However, the settlement is named after Karl Liebknecht, not "Karl Libknekht". --2001:999:22:B187:8557:5049:84F2:D893 (talk) 19:08, 1 March 2017 (UTC)
It is irrelevant.--Ymblanter (talk) 19:13, 1 March 2017 (UTC)
It is not irrelevant, the Wrangel Island in Russia is named after Ferdinand von Wrangel, not "Vrangel". --2001:999:22:B187:8557:5049:84F2:D893 (talk) 19:32, 1 March 2017 (UTC)
This is also irrelevant. There are no Wikipedia policies which say anything close to this.--Ymblanter (talk) 19:37, 1 March 2017 (UTC)
Yaroslav, thanks for pitching in, but please be aware that he is just trolling. He's been asking me this same question (sometimes about this settlement, sometimes about others) repeatedly for, oh, at least eight years, keeps fishing other people's pages at random to get them to agree with him, and never introduces any new arguments even as those arguments have no merit behind them from either Wikipedia guidelines point of view or general transliteration practices. There's nothing you or me can tell him that hasn't been explained before.—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); March 2, 2017; 14:18 (UTC)

Revert[edit]

Hello.

As you might have noticed, I reverted your revert. My edit, that you reverted, was fixing inconsistent dates. Obviously one has to be chosen.

I also changed some other things. If you disagree on some changes in an edit, please do not revert all of it, revert only what you disagree with and keep the rest.

Thanks.

Regards

Dolgoshchelskoye Rural Settlement[edit]

Hi Ezhiki, I hope you are fine. We now got this article, and it is likely we will be getting more of this kind. Do we have a structural solution? Redirects for municipal districts are under control, I have created more than a half of those, and I am still creating them on a regular basis.--Ymblanter (talk) 17:31, 28 March 2017 (UTC)

Hi, Yaroslav! Always a pleasure to hear from you. Thanks for doing the redirects; I hate that part! :)
I'm doing fine, but it's been incredibly difficult to keep my usual contributions level ever since I changed jobs last year. I'll get there eventually, though.
Rural settlements, as you can imagine, are on my to-do list (like a million other things), but I don't believe we are at a point yet where creating mass stubs about them is a smart move. I wouldn't worry about occasional one-off articles like this one, but if anybody starts mass-producing underdeveloped stubs, they should probably be brought in on board and explained what the "grand vision" is :) If nothing else, explain that cleaning up crap is a lot harder than developing a well-thought workflow and sticking to it to the end.
Additionally, since we are focusing on the administrative divisions as the primary article topics (into which information about municipal divisions normally gets upmerged), there shouldn't be any articles about municipal rural settlements unless a) such municipal rural settlements span multiple selsoviets or account for only a portion of a selsoviet; b) rural settlements are considered to be both administrative and municipal divisions within the federal subject, or c) there are no low-level administrative divisions in the federal subject. For most of Arkhangelsk Oblast, the territories of the selsoviets and the rural settlement coincide, so I would move this article to Dolgoshchelsky Selsoviet, address the municipal aspect within it (same way we address municipal district aspects in the articles about administrative districts), and redirect Dolgoshchelskoye Rural Settlement to it.
If you encounter any more like these and are not sure where they should be moved to (or if they should be moved at all), just drop me a note. I can always find time to answer something like that. But I'd very much prefer to first establish the network of disambiguation pages/set indices/redirects for the selsoviets and rural settlements, along the line of what's already been done for the districts. I have all the information for a job like that; all I need is time. Cheers,—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); March 28, 2017; 18:33 (UTC)
Thanks a lot. No, I do not thing we will see proliferation of these articles right now, but they certainly will be eventually created.--Ymblanter (talk) 18:51, 28 March 2017 (UTC)

Who is Max Laserson??[edit]

Hey, long time no talk! I found the discrepancy between Maksis Lazersons and the corresponding Russian page troubling. From the English page, you'd never know he was ever in Australia; from the Russian one you'd never know he was ever in America. It's not impossible they're both correct, that he was in Australia till 1948 and then came to the US, taught college, and died, but it seems very odd. I have a book of his, and from the brief bio it's clear the part about the US is true, but maybe the Australia passage in the Russian page is a fantasy? (There's no reference.) Also, why is the English page called "Maksis Lazersons" when he called himself Max Laserson in English? (The book has "Max M. Laserson" on the cover.) Anyway, I thought I'd dump it in your lap and take the opportunity to say that as fed up as I get with Wikipedia, I always think fondly of you and hope you're doing well. Languagehat (talk) 20:09, 29 March 2017 (UTC)

Great to hear from you, too! Especially when you are bearing gifts :)
I've never heard of this person before today, but a quick search (the results of which you may or may not have already seen) reveals a short article in the Russian Jewish Encyclopedia (which makes no mention of Australia), a research paper (ditto), and this excerpt of questionable provenance, containing Laserson's correspondence, where he explicitly states that he was in the US in 1939.
The user who added the Australia passage has not, unfortunately, been editing Wikipedia since 2016, but I see he explicitly replaced the US part with Australia part, and I see that part matching this excerpt, but since it's only a snippet view, it's not very helpful. After a bit of detective work, I can confirm that page 456 of that volume is, in fact, where the chapter about Laserson ends, but this really doesn't help answering your question. However, the snippet of page 451 (where the chapter begins) says that "Moris Lazerson" was born in Mitau (old name of Jelgava), but in 1879, so it's likely it's a different person altogether and things have mixed up quite a bit everywhere. Sorry for not being of more help, but this is not a subject I'd have anything about in my library! Hopefully these findings will whet your appetite for fixing things, at least here in the English wiki :)
As for the article's title, you are absolutely right—it should be moved. That part is taken care of now. Cheers,—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); March 29, 2017; 21:20 (UTC)
Many thanks for your dogged research! I've lost most of my taste for editing, apart from the occasional uncontroversial addition of a pronunciation or grammatical cleanup, thanks to too many run-ins with rule-obsessed and/or personally invested editors, so I'll just let the whole thing rest in peace until a more ambitious Wikipedian comes along. Languagehat (talk) 18:10, 30 March 2017 (UTC)
Well, that's a pity, but I understand. Anyway, I've restored the pre-Australia passage on the ru_wiki side, so the articles are now at least somewhat in sync.—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); March 30, 2017; 18:25 (UTC)

Guideline and policy news

  • Following a discussion on the backlog of unpatrolled files, consensus was found to create a new user right for autopatrolling file uploads. Implementation progress can be tracked on Phabricator.
  • The BLPPROD grandfather clause, which stated that unreferenced biographies of living persons were only eligible for proposed deletion if they were created after March 18, 2010, has been removed following an RfC.
  • An RfC has closed with consensus to allow proposed deletion of files. The implementation process is ongoing.
  • After an unsuccessful proposal to automatically grant IP block exemption, consensus was found to relax the criteria for granting the user right from needing it to wanting it.

Technical news

  • After a recent RfC, moved pages will soon be featured in a queue similar to Special:NewPagesFeed and require patrolling. Moves by administrators, page movers, and autopatrolled editors will be automatically marked as patrolled.
  • Cookie blocks have been deployed. This extends the current autoblock system by setting a cookie for each block, which will then autoblock the user if they switch accounts, even under a new IP.

Victor Merzhanov doesn't reference informations about students. It's probably a translation from Russian, not referenced. Xx236 (talk) 06:06, 13 April 2017 (UTC)
For WP:DABRL purposes, mentions do not need to be referenced, only included. On the other hand, if the veracity/notability of the included information is in question or doubt, then it can be removed from the article, as is the case with any other unsourced material. In that case the disambiguation page entry should be removed as well.—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); April 13, 2017; 12:59 (UTC)

Привет, друг!!! Ты можешь по ссылке посмотреть чего там намудрили с толкованием нашего ГК упертые пользователи склада? Ну чесс слово не понимаю их рвения. В обсуждении попытался растолковать, но, боюсь меня не поймут )). --M. J. Lee Khan talk 11:22, 16 April 2017 (UTC)

Привет! Сколько лет, сколько зим :)
К сожалению, моё знание российского права ограничено административно-территориальным и муниципальным устройством страны, поэтому с интепретацией ГК я помочь не могу. Хотя хочу отметить, что довольно странно выглядит сама процедура номинации изображений в одной большой куче, вместо того чтобы как следует рассмотреть каждое по-отдельности, но я вижу по этому поводу уже кто-то прокомментировал.—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); April 17, 2017; 11:23 (UTC)

Я лет десять назад или около того сфотографировал статую Эйфеля у подножия Эйфелевой башни. Страшненькая такая фотография была, и статуя сама была лесами полузатянута, но на неимением в то время ничего лучшего, загрузил что было. Через некоторое время фотографию удалили. Так я узнал, что такое FoP и с тех пор к проекту Commons значительно охладел :)
