Language policy[edit]

I've read the paragraphs in cases you pointed to, none of these says that these candidates were pro-minoroty, only Podkolzina's case mentions her political views (it dosen't state what her views are though) and two isn't various. BTW certain level of command in Latvian was asked for eligibility - shouldn't it say eligibility to what ? ~~Xil * 22:02, 15 April 2008 (UTC)

Do you see a need to find sources that describe "Equal Rights" (Ignatane) and National Harmony Party (Podkolzina) as pro-minority parties? I hesitate if this is debated, but we can look for sources - or just mention specific parties instead of "pro-minority".
two isn't various - in Podkolzina Para. 36, is written of the twenty-one candidates who had to provide certificates attesting to knowledge of the State language only nine, including the applicant, were required to sit a second examination. Sadly there is no mentioning of parties.
So I propose re-examinations of various candidates, at least sometimes unexpected, which prevented I. (ER) and P. (NHP) from participation (the two cases I've mentioned were unexpected - see Podkolzina Para. 10 and Ignatane Para 5.6.)
and if you find necessary eligibility to what? - then to Parliament and local councils. Aleksandrs Kuzmins (talk) 01:43, 16 April 2008 (UTC)
I did note that it mentioned 9 other candidates, however it dosen't give any further details, also note that 11 candidates didn't have to repeat the text. Why not just explain what the cases were about ? That would mean roughly the same and would make the article better as currently you haven't explained to the reader what is obvious to you - why do you suppose the reader should know who are these ladies, if all you say about them is that they were not eligibile ? ~~Xil * 11:27, 16 April 2008 (UTC)
Explained in the article. Besides, I've found a source confirming that Podkolzina was then also from "Equal Rights" (List of NHP at 1998 elections was in fact list of the whole ForHRUL coalition). Aleksandrs Kuzmins (talk) 13:24, 16 April 2008 (UTC)

While we're at it I just noticed that the picture used in article isn't properly licensed, maybe you have some images that could be used in article in case it gets deleted ? ~~Xil * 14:20, 16 April 2008 (UTC)

Yes, there are some (seen, for example, in ru:Русский язык в Латвии). Still, they aren't of best quality. Aleksandrs Kuzmins (talk) 20:23, 16 April 2008 (UTC)

After looking at the lv Wikipedia article on PCTVL, it struck me that since you have a WP:REALNAME, you might be accused of WP:COI in your edits of ForHRUL and related articles (e.g. Tatjana Ždanoka, etc.). For your own benefit, you might consider clarifying this situation on your user page, so as to protect yourself from possible future censure. Regards, Zalktis (talk) 08:49, 22 April 2009 (UTC)

Thank you for the attention. I consider that exactly the fact I don't hide my name (combined with the edicting according to WP:COI) shows my correct behaviour. Actually, links to my webpage are already provided on my ru: and lv: userpages. If you recommend so, I can add it here, too. Aleksandrs Kuzmins (talk) 21:50, 23 April 2009 (UTC)
For clarity's sake this is probably the right thing to do. At the very least, it certianly shouldn't be to your detriment. —Zalktis (talk) 07:23, 24 April 2009 (UTC)


Thanks for [1]. Such fact overviews are one of the few areas where Wikipedia can excel, and yet often neglected. Дигвурен ДигвуровичАллё? 11:57, 16 June 2009 (UTC)

UN Jurisprudence[edit]

I notice you've been doing some articles on UN jurisprudence from the HRC and in one case from CERD. Any chance of looking at the cases mentioned in the "jurisprudence" section of Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination? --IdiotSavant (talk) 12:22, 11 October 2009 (UTC)

May be, if I will find something there especially interesting, but hardly in nearest future - there are some ECHR cases I plan to write about, and I feel I don't dedicate enough time for some things outside Wikipedia. If you wish to write about them, some CERD cases are collected here. And all of them should be in this database (Type - Jurisprudence). I suspect, that some still aren't - then it could be reasonable to look for them in (Type - Sessional/Annual Reports).Fuseau (talk) 18:17, 11 October 2009 (UTC)

Cyprus v. Turkey[edit]

Thanks for this excellent article. Are you by any chance an English or Scots lawyer? I have a few collaborations going. Other than that, if you've got European topics to write about, I've got a stack of textbooks. Thanks, Ironholds (talk) 22:59, 1 January 2010 (UTC)

1. Thank you 2. No, I'm a jurist from Latvia. 3. No specific plans now, but I do write regularly on ECtHR landmark cases.Fuseau (talk) 23:04, 1 January 2010 (UTC)

Richard Dawkins[edit]

I have no problem with your edit here (although youtube is a bit dubious as a source), but may I suggest that if you make any similar edits that you should use a completely normal edit summary that simply outlines the change ("added political views"). WP:DENY should be strongly applied, and any added material should be in your own words and should use sources that you have checked are appropriate, without reference to other editors.
