Ukrainian placenames[edit]

First of all I am impressed with the additions you have made. But a thought occurred to me. Most of the places listed were never towns, because the Ukrainians were given the chance to name their own towns.

It would be interesting to expand on the fact that Ukrainians in Canada didn't get the chance to name most of the towns that they live in. In fact the most important Ukrainian settlements often have French names since Ukrainians typically settled around existing French bloc settlements (e.g. Vegreville, Dauphin). Also, so many towns in Western Canada were named by the railways. See List of Grand Trunk Pacific Railway stations.

What Ukrainians did have (some) control over was naming of their rural communities, centered around rural churches, schools, and post offices. These are not towns, and we should not claim that they are, but they are an important subject in their own right.

Perhaps we need a article as well as a list. Place naming in Western Canada or similar. --Kevlar (talkcontribs) 20:03, 26 October 2009 (UTC)

I've built on your changes, see if you approve. --Kevlar (talkcontribs) 02:09, 30 October 2009 (UTC)
I believe that Freedom was originally a German settlement and the name was changed during the anti-German wave of WWI, but I don't have any evidence for that. The location and spelling for Halych are taken from a map published by the County of Westlock so I think it is authoritative. --Kevlar (talkcontribs) 15:11, 6 September 2010 (UTC)

Vita, Manitoba[edit]

I notice that there was a time when you did make some additions to this article. I have expanded the Ukrainian article in the Ukrainian Wikipedia. I would have done the same here, but someone erroneously labelled me as a vandalizer and I am barred from editing the English version. Could you expand this article on the basis of the UkrWiki, please. -- (talk) 07:23, 16 February 2010 (UTC)

Ivan Franko's political affiliation[edit]

Well, frankly, me being from that city I can tell you that most of its residents to this day are puzzled what was the purpose for renaming the city in that manner. The only fact that was explained for renaming the city is that Franko was one of the greatest Ukrainian writers and he used to visited the city spending there, like, almost two days or something. In his wiki article however someone wrote another pretty wild fact, though, that his family was German. That is simply off the chain. I do not know who Mr. Snyder is, but claiming Franko to be a German national is pretty wild. As well as that his family name Frank in German means blacksmith. Now that I can guarantee is wrong. I studied German in school for some 10 years that word for blacksmith is Schmidt as Smith in English. I will correct that as it was tagged since February. On the subject of his political views I believe that is a kind of speculation claiming that because Franko was a socialist was the reason why the name of the city was changed. The other reason could be also the fact that he was part of the Moscowphile movement. Aleksandr Grigoryev (talk) 11:56, 19 August 2010 (UTC)

Re:David Karwacki excluded from 2007 election infobox[edit]

I can totally understand where you are coming from, but...
We often seem to have this situation where parties with no representation in a legislative body are added to the leader's infobox. Supporters of the other parties cry foul, suggesting that wikipedia is trying to influence votes by adding the unrepresented parties in the leader's infobox, and therefore delete them. Then those who support the party accuse wikipedia of distorting the truth/keeping the smaller parties down.
For examples of this, just look at the talk page for the next federal election, or the most recent New Brunswick general election.

Due to this controversy, we usually try to keep leader's infoboxes to leaders who have representation in a particular legislative body, and if one of the minor parties gains a seat, then they will be added as well. That being said, the fact that the SK Liberals participated in the debate is something that could be used to justify it being there, as Elizabeth May was in the 2008 leader's debates.

I'm not sure quite how to proceed. I think a Wikipedia:Third Opinion may be able to clear this up for us. Until then, feel free to put Mr. Karwacki's information back in the infobox, just make sure to put a "replace image male" photo for his image, so that it is more symmetrical.--Bkissin (talk) 18:23, 12 October 2010 (UTC)

Hi Jwkozak91, thanks for the useful edits in the article; one question: what do you mean with

Amazing Race format[edit]

Over the summer a new format was decided upon at Talk:The Amazing Race, placing items such as Roadblock icons at the beginning of lines if the clue directs contestants to go to a different location. It's confusing, yes, but it provides the most accurate information of where they travelled.—Ryulong (琉竜) 10:20, 10 October 2012 (UTC)

TAR Canada 4 - Anthony[edit]

UKR CDN edits[edit]

I hear what you're saying, but dialect doesn't change the word. While what you're saying is probably the case, maybe it belongs better in a etymology section on the actual kielbasa article than saying "or kubasa", the latter could be too open, why not make it "or kubasa or cobassa or kobasa or kabasa or...", get what I'm saying? The thing with OUN is...well I don't know, both statements are true. OUN fought in all of western ukraine, and went into soviet ukraine as well, but as far as poland goes, that concerns eastern galicia (ternopil, stanislaviv, lviv, drohobych) and volyn, but also chelm and krakow and lublin i believe. I figured "interwar poland" was too broad a region. That's my rationale, at least.--Львівське (talk) 06:00, 1 April 2011 (UTC)

Scotties colours[edit]

Hi, I've reverted your edits. My main issue is with making Nova Scotia blue. Nova Scotia's uniforms were purple for a good number of years. I'm not sure when they changed to navy blue, probably around 10 years ago. Anyways, the kind of edits you're making affect other events, like the Brier, so we should come up with a consensus first. -- Earl Andrew - talk 01:28, 19 February 2013 (UTC)

I seem to recall differently... But I can't find anything on google to prove it one way or the other. I do know that about 10 years ago, a curler on my team who had just come from NS had won an NS coat in a Scotties contest and it was purple. I seem to recall NS wearing purple before then. But, I could be wrong. -- Earl Andrew - talk

List of current state leaders by date of assumption of office[edit]

I see you reverted my edit, reflecting leaders who have held the same office before their nation's independence. Since the article is titled by date of assumption of office, shouldn't it reflect dates like 1967 for the Sultan of Brunei? For instance, the current President of South Sudan has held that title and that position continuously since 2005, and South Sudan's independence in 2005 had zero effect on his position. I fail to see how my edit is illogical, when your revision leaves those four leaders not satisfying the name of the list. Dralwik|Have a Chat 01:28, 22 July 2013 (UTC)

As I think it over, I will now admit you have a case with Brunei, based on how much control Bandar Seri Begawan had over its relationship with neighbouring states before 1984. However, the Kazakh Soviet Socialist Republic and the Uzbek Soviet Socialist Republic had their foreign affairs and defence & border control policies rigidly commanded by Moscow; the same scenario with the Southern Sudan autonomous region (2005–2011) and Khartoum. In my humble opinion, if a state has no control over its own defences, relations with its neighbours and is not recognized by the United Nations, then it is not independent.– Jwkozak91 (talk) 01:59, 22 July 2013 (UTC)
Alright, I can accept that compromise. I'll go revert the change I just did to Kosovo (the current Prime Minister came in a month before the independence declaration). Brunei is tricky since the British oversaw national defense, but Brunei had foreign relations with its neighbors and its constitution as a protectorate, which is still in effect, names the Sultan as head of state with the British Commissioner in a more sort of advisory position. But you do have a good point in that the Stans were nowhere near independent under Moscow's rule. Thanks, Dralwik|Have a Chat 02:02, 22 July 2013 (UTC)

You seem to be some kind of unofficial editor of the election calendar.

I reinstated the Parliamentary election in Poland, but there are also the Presidential election in Poland which will take place in June at the latest, the constitutional referendum in Burma and the Presidential elections in Latvia and Lebanon (next round January 7). It would be good if posters made a note in the talk section before removing elections. As it is now the editing process appear very confusing."

In the elections, Skvernelis has run on (headed, in fact) the electoral list of Peasants and Greens, caucuses with Peasants and Greens in the Seimas and was nominated to be PM by the coalition where Peasants and Greens are the largest party, but he is very explicit about not actually being a member of any party.

A Happy New Year[edit]

It is a great pleasure to send all good wishes to a colleague archonologist. Bogdan Uleia (talk) 08:34, 30 December 2017 (UTC)

World leaders articles[edit]

Heads up. The editor Mewulwe tends to be headstrong & prone to edit war. I've had trouble with him, in the past. GoodDay (talk) 01:01, 5 January 2018 (UTC)

Governor General of Saint Lucia[edit]

Because I am the first to publish the information about Emsco Remy, I believe î must make some clarifications. I picked up the information on, a very reliable source. But later I also read other information, e.g. the Constitution of Saint Lucia or the article In accordance with Saint Lucia Constitution the Acting General Governor must be specifically appointed for the same function. The Deputy Governor General can become Acting Governor General only when there is a Governor General who cannot exercise his duties due to the various reasons, So on 1 January Emsco Remy could not be Acting Governor General, and so a constitutional crisis arose. The appointment of Neville Cenac on 4 January effective 1 January didn’t solve the problem because the General Governor takes over his duties only after taking the oath which will take place only on 12 January, so until then there was no Governor General in office and the Deputy General Governor can not be Acting Governor General. Antecedent appointment did not solve the problem of vacancy, In my opinion de jure the office of General Governor is vacant. On the other hand they are not information Emso Remy or Neville Cenac act a General Governor so, probably, the office is , de facto too, vacant, if they is not other information. Anyway, until 12 January Neville Cenac is not de jure Governor General and it does not seem de facto, too

The Gambia.[edit]

Thanks for adding Adama Barrow the President of the Gambia to the list of Commonwealth heads of government.

The Gambia returned to the Commonwealth on 8 February 2018 after over a year since Adama Barrow came to power after defeating Yahya Jammeh in the 2016 Gambian presidential election. - ( (talk) 08:04, 9 February 2018 (UTC))

South Africa[edit]

You may want to keep an eye on Jacob Zuma & Cyril Ramaphosa articles. Many editors are arguing that the Deputy President assumed role of acting president, when presidency becomes vacant. GoodDay (talk) 10:27, 15 February 2018 (UTC)

February 2018[edit]

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at Ukrainians shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. To resolve the content dispute, please do not revert or change the edits of others when you are reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. The best practice at this stage is to discuss, not edit-war. See BRD for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

Can you please explain why these breaks are necessary? Thanks. (talk) 10:47, 25 March 2018 (UTC)

Period vandal, returns.[edit]

It looks like the 'period' adjuster vandal is back again. Likely will have to get the List of current heads of state and government article semi-protected, again. GoodDay (talk) 15:56, 29 March 2018 (UTC)

Communist Party of Cuba leadership[edit]

What's your source that Raul Castro will be stepping down by July?...his term ends in 2021.The handover of government jobs is distinct from that of party jobs. (talk) 19:32, 18 April 2018 (UTC)


Hello! I get the impression that you, somewhat understandably, believe the First Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Cuba is head of state or government, or can at least be considered a "national leader". While it is true that Raúl, in his capacity as First Secretary, wields significant amounts of power, he can no longer be considered the de jure Cuban national leader. He should therefore be listed as serving as the leader of Cuba in the period 2008–2018, and only in this period. Even if he hypothetically continues to rule from behind the scenes, he is not to be listed as the dictator of Cuba. I understand your reasoning, but we simply cannot base the content of articles listing longest-serving office-holders on unofficial or alleged powers. To compare, we don't list Jarosław Kaczyński as the leader of Poland, or Liviu Dragnea as the leader of Romania, just because they are the leaders of the ruling parties and hold de facto control over their governments and countries. I'm choosing to discuss this issue with you here since it seems like this is a stance you've decided to impose on multiple articles. Cheers! — Μαρκος Δ 22:46, 19 April 2018 (UTC)

You fail to grasp the essential difference between one-party states and free countries.Do Muoi did not stop being leader of Vietnam when he moved from being head of government to the more powerful position of head of the ruling party,and Kim Jong Un is no less the leader of North Korea because others have been head of state and head of government throughout his tenure of the ruling party.Only in countries where the ruling party can be freely voted out is party leadership of no consequence. (talk) 13:46, 21 April 2018 (UTC)
Yeah, and you "fail to grasp" that the various relevant articles are about official heads of state and government. Raúl Castro is neither, and the issue of whether he should be included in lists of official heads of state and government is therefore not up for discussion. Wikipedia is not a place for some IP user to impose his subjective view of who's really in charge in a country. In a list of formal office-holders, we cannot include people who do not formally hold a government office – even if they are the de facto ruler. If you still do not comprehend or accept this, then I suggest you bring this issue forward to a review by multiple editors; I am not interested in spending time and energy arguing over this with you alone. — Μαρκος Δ 22:36, 21 April 2018 (UTC)
I don't believe ignoring de facto rulers has ever been the intent of these articles.The identification of party leaders of one-party states as rulers is far from subjective. (talk) 00:50, 23 April 2018 (UTC)

List of current longest-ruling non-royal national leaders[edit]

Hello, please, Mister Nazarbayev was president of his country since 1984 but the country was an independent state only since 1991! Thank you in advance!!! — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:05, 1 May 2018 (UTC)

Giuseppe Conte[edit]

Okay, what's the difference between President of the Council of Ministers vs. Prime Minister? His article refers to him as Prime Minister. I changed it for continuity. Snickers2686 (talk) 13:55, 25 May 2018 (UTC)

Canada's Worst Driver 12[edit]


Just a question: Would it be okay if I mention about Krystal in the lead-in section (similar to Tzuyu's flag incident), as Season 12 is especially notable for Krystal?

Thanks and sincerely,

Quotation marks on WP-en[edit]

Regarding your edit summary here (same editor, different location): you’re right, I have never heard of that series, as I have no particular interest in learning French. I am, however, familiar with the quotation marks used in «French», as well as those used in 「Japanese」. Neither is appropriate here, per MOS:QUOTEMARKS. But thanks for the recommendation; I’ll pass it along to anyone interested in learning the language. — (talk) 02:20, 28 June 2018 (UTC)

List of current heads of state and government[edit]

Regarding Cook Islands and Niue:

A free association is not the same as a state claiming the territory of another state. That is the reason I removed New Zealand from that table. If you want New Zealand in that box, I would suggest making it very clear it is a free association, a tiny note next to the country name does not really serve that purpose imo.Chaosquo (talk) 12:11, 6 September 2018 (UTC)

Template:Aviation accidents and incidents in 2018[edit]

Please persist from making edits like this one[2] plus two others you did recently to the template. Consensus is that only aviation accidents that have their own WP article. Hidden referenced (And may I add that per WP:NAVBOX, templates aren't to have external links. Your hidden entries have these) entries like you are making don't meet the entry criteria for these templates and will be removed as have all you have done to date....William, is the complaint department really on the roof? 12:51, 10 September 2018 (UTC)


I wish you'd said that the first time. I was watching their edits, but I don't know the material. At any rate, I hope you understand you can't just revert without any explanation. Even better would be to explain this on the talk page, for future reference. Thank you, Drmies (talk) 20:51, 23 September 2018 (UTC)

Persistent IP[edit]

Howdy. At List of current reigning monarchs by length of reign, a persistent & ever changing IP, keeps adding an individual to the article section, where (If I'm understanding correctly) doesn't belong. Am I correct with my reverts? GoodDay (talk) 22:33, 4 February 2019 (UTC)
