Help request[edit]

{{helpme}}

This article must be renamed to Perccottus glenii (two c).

--George Chernilevsky (talk) 15:40, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

Hi there. I've moved this from the talk page; please use helpme here, on your own talk page.
You can actually do this change yourself - just go to the article Percottus glenii, and click 'Move' at the top (after Article, Talk, Edit, History...). Put in the new name - be careful about capitals - and put something in the reason. For more on this, see WP:MOVE.
If you have any trouble at all, please ask again. You can either;
  • Leave a message on my own talk page; OR
  • Use a {{helpme}} - please create a new section at the end of your own talk page, put {{helpme}}, and ask your question - remember to 'sign' your name by putting ~~~~ at the end; OR
  • Talk to us live, with this or this.
Best wishes,  Chzz  ►  15:48, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

Hi. There's an edit at this nom. Will you comment on your preference for the original or the edit? Thanks. Makeemlighter (talk) 09:59, 10 April 2010 (UTC)

Info added --George Chernilevsky talk 18:29, 10 April 2010 (UTC)

Hi.[edit]

I saw you commented on the AE appeal, I am wondering if you know that she is free to work with photography and indeed anything that she wants as long as it does not touch on Israel-Arab conflicts? Unomi (talk) 11:34, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

Hi Unomi!
Thank You for this comment.
Even small punishment has moral aspect. I try to be neutral and i prefer not to interfere with conflicts. However, i see no reason for topic ban Mbz1.
With best regards, --George Chernilevsky talk 13:46, 11 April 2010 (UTC)
Hi George :),
If you wish you can ask Sandstein for clarification regarding the topic ban, my understanding is that a number of issues lead up to it with the final drop consisting of alluding to another editor being a holocaust denier.
My concern at the moment is more of what will happen if mbz1 is allowed back to I/P with civility restrictions and she is unable to abide by them? Unomi (talk) 16:15, 11 April 2010 (UTC)
I think, she is civilized person. --George Chernilevsky talk 10:21, 12 April 2010 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Hi George, Thank you very much for your comment on my appeal. Although it failed, I will always remember your help. Best wishes.--Mbz1 (talk) 01:59, 13 April 2010 (UTC)

Help needed with Rinat Akhmetov article![edit]

Dear George,

I kindly ask you to help us to resolve a dispute with user Львівське whose allegations seem to insinuate reputation of Rinat Akhmetov, who is a living public person; recently I have thoroughly reviewed and restructured the article Rinat Akhmetov, removed poorly sourced statements having put proven facts in chronological and logical order. Львівське is now systematically restoring his version though it includes statements violating WIKI policies about Verifiability, Biographies of living persons and gossip. Kindly assist on the matter. --Orekhova (talk) 10:48, 16 August 2011 (UTC)

 Done. Some info added to article talk page.
