Serdtse[edit]

There was a link to the music and to Serdtse on Pyotr Leshchenko, but that link died.

I have just googled the following mp3:

http://music.lib.ru/p/pesni_ret/

"Сердце [mp3,691k] Оценка:8.72*10 Другое

Исаак Дунаевский - В. Лебедев - Кумач. Поёт К.Сокольский "

This is sung by Sokolsky. Bad quality I am afraid.

I am sure there must be a rap version around somewhere too...

I hope that helps you choose the correct youtube version - if there is nothing to be found I may ask my dance partner for us to "perform" and be filmed... ;>) Thanks for your efforts, by the way. --Pan Gerwazy 18:21, 27 November 2006 (UTC)

    • Thanks, I don't speak any russian so i just selected a Youtube video with the same name. Sorry.--Freek Verkerk 19:01, 27 November 2006 (UTC)
      • Угкулй! I mean, "eureka", of course. I had to do a lot of digging into Youtube to find the right version (the Russian word can be transcribed in several ways, and there are many songs called "serdtse" - and since Akvarium you cannot be sure that "punk" or "rap" means it is definitely not the Leshchenko song), but it was worth it, I think. The video shows a Russian Big Brother (Za Steklom) competitor trying to sing the song. Good enough (well bad enough, really) to stop the copyright dons who are starting to object to the quoting of youtube links. The second link I found is to the song that was really called "Serdtse" in the film - luckily you did not quote that one, since the songs actually resemble each other! We will have to quote "fair use" on that second one, I suppose. What quality is it on your computer? With me, the video now and then "stutters". Gelukkig Nieuwjaar, overigens. --Pan Gerwazy 21:00, 30 December 2006 (UTC)

Elvis Presley[edit]

Hi, I seen your overview of the Elvis Presley article and would like to invite you over to offer any views on its content once again and if you'd like to stay - to help us out with editing. --Northmeister 14:59, 13 May 2007 (UTC)Best wishes.

Notability of Leonardoschool[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Leonardoschool requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article, which appears to be about a real person, organization (band, club, company, etc.), or web content, 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. If this is the first page that you have created, then you should read the guide to writing your first article.

If you think that you can assert the notability of the subject, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the article (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the article's 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 confirm the subject's notability under Wikipedia guidelines.

For guidelines on specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for bands, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Jasynnash2 (talk) 13:43, 7 October 2008 (UTC)

Neuroscience and intelligence[edit]

Hi. I have no problems with the changes that you made -- the article is a random collection of cruft anyway -- but please try to use an edit summary that accurately reflects what you have done to an article. Regards, Looie496 (talk) 02:05, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

Overlinking[edit]

Hello. You have been adding many links to various articles. In some cases your edits do not follow Wikipedia style guidelines and have been reverted. Your contributions are very welcome but please read WP:OVERLINK. Cheers. pgr94 (talk) 02:16, 28 November 2008 (UTC)

I second that. Alse, when you add a link, please check what page it goes to; many of your links go to disambiguation pages or other pages not relevant in the context. Kusma (talk) 12:10, 8 February 2009 (UTC)
I also agree. Freek Verkerk, this is another one that you can't do "your way". Please do it the Wikipedia way. Ward3001 (talk) 16:27, 8 February 2009 (UTC)

Removing categories[edit]

Would you please explain why you removed the "Psychological testing" category from John E. Exner‎? Do you know anything about John Exner? Do you know what his greatest contributions to the field of psychology were? Ward3001 (talk) 02:00, 13 December 2008 (UTC)

That is an incredibly strained interpretation of the appropriateness of a category. If a category notably relates to the the person, it is acceptable. He is notable for his work in psychological testing. With your strained logic, Harvard University should have the category "Cambridge, Massachusetts" removed because Harvard isn't Cambridge, and Paul McCartney should have the category "Animal rights movement" removed because he is not a movement. This is not the way it is done on Wikipedia. Please do not remove relevant categories. Thank you. Ward3001 (talk) 02:50, 13 December 2008 (UTC)
I like to do it my way Freek Verkerk (talk) 00:49, 15 December 2008 (UTC)
There's something on Wikipedia called consensus. That takes much higher precedence over "your way". Please follow it, and if you want to do it differently, please raise the issue on the page's talk page and get consensus before removing such categories. I must insist that you do so especially for articles related to psychological tests and related issues. I have had to restore a number of categories that you removed with no good reason. Ward3001 (talk) 00:55, 15 December 2008 (UTC)

Quote: "too many different articles in one category"[edit]

Hello. It doesn't make sense to change articles for this pseudo-reason. It's like adjusting reality to your aesthetics. Greetings, 217.236.226.196 (talk) 23:32, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

  • You are right. But more then a 100 articles in one category usually makes it possible to make subcategories. Freek Verkerk (talk)

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. This is a notice to inform you that a tag has been placed on Business Case requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A3 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an article with no content whatsoever, or whose contents consist only of external links, a "See also" section, book references, category tags, template tags, interwiki links, images, a rephrasing of the title, a question that should have been asked at the help or reference desks, or an attempt to contact the subject of the article. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion".
