September 2014[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Iryna Harpy. I noticed that you made a change to an article, Russia, but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed and archived in the page history for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you need guidance on referencing, please see the referencing for beginners tutorial, or if you think I made a mistake, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. Iryna Harpy (talk) 06:15, 17 September 2014 (UTC)

Iryna Harpy, There are sources to the map on the Russian language article, it has already been used on multiple pages. --Leftcry (talk) 22:29, 17 September 2014 (UTC)
Cheers, Leftcry. I've left a response on the Wiki Commons page regarding the problems with it. I have no objection to using it if it is properly sourced and clearly qualified, but at this point I don't believe it is. 'Widely understood' is a subjective concept and needs to be better qualified. It's irrelevant that it is being used on a few pages (most of them not being Wikipedia articles). What is relevant for use in a Wikipedia article is WP:V, WP:RS and WP:OR. --Iryna Harpy (talk) 23:18, 17 September 2014 (UTC)

Your edit of "European sub-regions" file[edit]

Hi Leftcry, I noticed that you've uploaded a new version of the File:European sub-regions (according to EuroVoc, the thesaurus of the EU).png map, where Kazakhstan is highlighted as part of Eastern Europe. I appreciate your efforts to improve it, but I had to revert this to the original version. I personally consider Kazakhstan a transcontinental country - one that is partially in Europe and partially in Asia. However, this map is supposed to represent the view of EuroVoc and the categories they divide Europe into, as seen in this source: http://eurovoc.europa.eu/drupal/?q=request&uri=http://eurovoc.europa.eu/100277 and Kazakhstan is not considered as a European country there. Thanks, --Samotny Wędrowiec (talk) 17:45, 15 October 2014 (UTC)

Ebola virus disease in the United States[edit]

It is 2 people who did contract Ebola in the US. While your edit was probably in good faith, it was wrong, so I undid it. The correct statistic is located further down in the infobox. Also, adding "West-African" is redundant because it already says that the affected countries are in W. Africa. Epicgenius (talk) 03:01, 24 October 2014 (UTC)


List of sovereign states and dependent territories in Europe[edit]

WP:3RR and discretionary sanctions[edit]

Please be advised of WP:3RR rule since you appear to be involved in edit war on several pages, including Donets Basin.

In addition The Arbitration Committee has authorised discretionary sanctions to be used for pages regarding Eastern Europe, a topic which you have edited. The Committee's decision is here. Discretionary sanctions is a system of conduct regulation designed to minimize disruption to controversial topics. This means uninvolved administrators can impose sanctions for edits relating to the topic that do not adhere to the purpose of Wikipedia, our standards of behavior, or relevant policies. Administrators may impose sanctions such as editing restrictions, bans, or blocks. My very best wishes (talk) 05:10, 20 November 2014 (UTC)

November 2014[edit]

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at Crimea 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 get reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the article's 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.

Buhas bus attack[edit]

By Ukrainian Government? What other government exists in the East Ukraine? But you know what. Your claim is completely groundless as the DPR militants conduct own investigation on the terrorist act case. Have you even checked the references that you deleted??

Samara Metro[edit]

Hi. It would be really good if a reference could be provided for the 2014 expansion of the Samara Metro. I just did a quick search myself, and couldn't find anything. If a reference isn't provided soon, these changes may get reverted under WP:V. Thanks in advance. --IJBall (talk) 05:10, 20 January 2015 (UTC)

Nationalist POV editing[edit]

I see that you have reversed some edits by a nationalist POV editor. Do you think we ought to review some of his other edits?

I reverted one that he made to the article on Vera Brezhneva, where he removed her real name and substituted a Ukrainian form.[1]

He also changed the name article on Anna Sedokova twice: first to Hanna Syedokova, then to Hanna Siedokova, each time removing the name she calls herself in Latin script, as well as her name in Russian. Do you think I should just rename the article? Or would it be better to have a move discussion at Wikipedia:Requested moves?-- Toddy1 (talk) 18:29, 1 February 2015 (UTC)

@Toddy1: First of all, thank you for reverting some of his disruptive edits. As for the article he renamed, I think you should just change it back as Anna Sedokova was the original title before his edits. If he continues to change the title then we will just have to report him. I'll have a look at some of his older edits to see if there are any other articles on whcih he was POV pushing. --Leftcry (talk) 19:39, 1 February 2015 (UTC)

@Toddy1: He reverted all of his edits, do you think we should report him? --Leftcry (talk) 12:48, 2 February 2015 (UTC)

What you have to do is to use the templates at Wikipedia:Template messages/User talk namespace. Do not worry I have given him the {{subst:uw-delete3}} templates for his last reverts of you and User:Taivo. Next time, the correct action is to give him the level 4 templates - one for each revert. If he reverts after receiving the level 4 templates, then you report him to Wikipedia:Administrator intervention against vandalism.-- Toddy1 (talk) 22:26, 2 February 2015 (UTC)
Regarding Anna Sedokova I have had to do a requested move. The POV editor's moving the article twice with a long gap in between had the effect of getting bots to fix double redirects - this meant that the redirect from Anna Sedokova has been edited, which prevents a non-admin user from moving the article back. I am suspect that this was a deliberate attempt to salt the redirect to prevent reverts.-- Toddy1 (talk) 22:58, 2 February 2015 (UTC)
Definitely an SPA. Please feel free to ping me if this editor continues with their blatantly POV redirects and content. He's trying to fly under the radar by working slowly, so it's always more difficult to undo the damage by the time any blocks or sanctions are put in place. --Iryna Harpy (talk) 05:43, 3 February 2015 (UTC)
Please add Svetlana Loboda‎ and Nu Virgos‎ to your watch lists.-- Toddy1 (talk) 08:44, 3 February 2015 (UTC)
Toddy1, Iryna Harpy Thank you both for bringing your attention to this issue! You two are a big help with maintaining NPOV on these articles. --Leftcry (talk) 23:51, 3 February 2015 (UTC)
Not a problem, Leftcry. Okay, I've added the other two to my watchlist. --Iryna Harpy (talk) 02:30, 4 February 2015 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Moscow Metro, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Bittsevsky Park. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Taurida Governorate[edit]

The Russian Empire fell and the governorate was split between the Crimean People's Republic (southern peninsular) and the Ukrainian People's Republic (northern continental). Aleksandr Grigoryev (talk) 12:11, 26 February 2015 (UTC)

Leftcry, why dont you read the article itself before going on with your groundless changes. Aleksandr Grigoryev (talk) 12:28, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
At the time, the Ukrainian People's Republic was part of the Russian Republic as it only got independence later which is why the Russian flag was there. Either way, the flag you inserted wasn't even the flag of the Ukrainian People's Republic. --Leftcry (talk) 21:41, 27 February 2015 (UTC)
Leftcry, when later? The Tuarida Governorate was split right after the October Revolution. Because of the Communist revolution, the Government in Kiev declared Tavriya (northern regions of Taurida) part of the Ukrainian People's Republic and merged them with the Yekaterinoslav Governorate. Until December, the peninsular portion was under the administration of Taurida council of People's Representatives which was an institution of the Russian Provisional Government. By January 1918 it was replaced with the government of Crimean People's Republic. By that time the Ukrainian People's Republic also announced its independence with the advancing troops of Red Guards dispatched from the Soviet Petrograd and Moscow onto Kiev. I do not understand what later you meant. Aleksandr Grigoryev (talk) 22:50, 27 February 2015 (UTC)
Moreover, the whole information about it is reflected withing the article. Have you even read it? Aleksandr Grigoryev (talk) 22:53, 27 February 2015 (UTC)
Exactly, 1918, the Russian Empire fell in 1917 and the Ukrainian People's Republic was briefly a part of the Russian Republic. --Leftcry (talk) 00:44, 28 February 2015 (UTC)
What? Leftcry, why are we talking about the Russian Republic? The Taurida Governorate was split as a result of Ukraine and Crimea get their independence from Russia in the beginning of 1918. Technically both of them seceded from the Russian Republic which was created as result of the February Revolution. I think you have confused dates. In October Bolsheviks assaulted the government building in Petrograd and dissolved the Russian parliament. Similar violent uprising took place in many cities across the Russian Republic. During this transition period until 1918, technically both Ukraine and Crimea (Taurida Governorate) were part of the Russian Republic. With the advance of the Red Gaurds of Muravyov on Kiev and Bolshevik takeover of Gaven in Crimea, governments of Ukraine and Crimea declared their independence and the Taurida governorate was split. Aleksandr Grigoryev (talk) 23:44, 1 March 2015 (UTC)
Ukraine declared independence in 1918, during a part of 1917 and a very small part 1918 it was an autonomy of the Russian Republic. --Leftcry (talk) 23:49, 1 March 2015 (UTC)
I don't think it should matter what state Ukraine was a part of in 1917. It's flag should be represented either way as it was its own subdivision with government and all. The fact that one portion of the Taurida Governorate became part of the Ukrainian People's Republic and the other a part of the Crimean People's Republic should be represented; there is no use for a Russian flag in there. Regardless of the fact of whether Ukraine was autonomous or independent, it's flag should be represented. § DDima 03:18, 4 March 2015 (UTC)
I believe the original reason the flag was there was due to the fact that the Crimean People's Republic was a sovereign state, but Ukraine wasn't at the time, so to balance it out the article included only sovereign states. Either way, if the flag of Ukraine is going to be represented, then it should at least be the actual flag of the Ukrainian People's Republic and not the current flag of Ukraine (which is what was done by Aleksandr Grigoryev). --Leftcry (talk) 03:25, 4 March 2015 (UTC)

ASEAN maps[edit]

Hey mate, just curious, why were the maps changed back to the old ones? — Junchuann Icons-flag-my.png 13:36, 1 March 2015 (UTC)

The maps were changed back because of the fact that they were put out without any consensus (which is a very common routine for the user who uploaded them). They also have very major border mistakes because of which they simply look completely inaccurate. --Leftcry (talk) 15:41, 1 March 2015 (UTC)

Eurovision 2015[edit]

You shouldn't have really reverted this edit and removed the content for Russia. I'm an experienced enough editor for WikiProject Eurovision, and the edit summary that I wrote when I made the change gave detailed explanation as to why there was a reversal in showing Russia as TBA March 2015. A discussion took place at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Eurovision#TBD vs TBA in which it was decided to use two different terminologies, TBD (to be determined) for countries that are holding a national selection; and TBA (to be announced) on countries that are holding internal selections. As it is a known fact through the publication of the Eurovision 2015 rules that all participating countries must submit their entries at the Heads of Delegation meeting on 16 March - then it means that Russia will announce their entry in March. So it is perfectly OK to keep it as it is on the article. Wes Mouse | T@lk 04:44, 7 March 2015 (UTC)

In that case, I do apologize. I wasn't aware of the fact that all countries must submit their entries by the 16th of March. I read the source and saw nothing about Russia which is why I removed it. --Leftcry (talk) 16:29, 7 March 2015 (UTC)

Sockpuppet investigation[edit]

Hi. An editor has opened an investigation into sockpuppetry by you. Sockpuppetry is the use of more than one Wikipedia account in a manner that contravenes community policy. The investigation is being held at Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/WhyHellWhy, where the editor who opened the investigation has presented their evidence. Please make sure you make yourself familiar with the guide to responding to investigations, and then feel free to offer your own evidence or to submit comments that you wish to be considered by the Wikipedia administrator who decides the result of the investigation. If you have been using multiple accounts (in a manner contrary to Wikipedia policy), please go to the investigation page and verify that now. Leniency is usually shown to those who promise not to do so again, or who did so unwittingly, but the abuse of multiple accounts is taken very seriously by the Wikipedia community. WikiMan20152014 (talk) 03:22, 2 July 2015 (UTC)
