when nullifying my edit to the Rachmaninoff article, I think you have misunderstood the Russian spelling. It is inconsistent and looks very strange to spell his last name Рахма́ниновъ with an ending ъ (the pre 1918 spelling), when his first name and patronymic Серге́й Васи́льевич are spelled according to post 1918 rules. You can't mix and match between the two spelling conventions. If you want to use the information to, for instance, look up Rachmaninoff in a Russian dictionary you would certainly use the modern spelling.
- That's very interesting. Please take this information to the article's talk page so it can be discussed before changing.MisterCSharp (talk) 12:34, 14 April 2015 (UTC)

Hello, Mr. CSharp,
With all due respect, what's the point of avoiding the use of infoboxes on Classical musicians' pages? And what 'consensus' has there been regarding this? I am not aware of any, although I'm aware this has been discussed numerous times...but I do not know that the general consensus would be to *not* add info boxes.
I have also encountered several classical musician pages where infoboxes are used...for instance this one.
I don't intend to be rude or challenging, but in my opinion there is nothing detrimental about adding info boxes to classical musician pages. Why should this differ from its use on non-classical pages?
- Please see, Wikipedia:WikiProject Classical music#Biographical infoboxes. Also, please remember to sign your posts with four tildes.MisterCSharp (talk) 13:48, 7 October 2014 (UTC)
The article states, "Infoboxes are neither required nor prohibited for any article.". Technically, no one is obliged to put, or not to put, infoboxes on Classical musician articles.
However, it also states, "Whether to include an infobox, which infobox to include, and which parts of the infobox to use, is determined through discussion and consensus among the editors at each individual article." Does this mean I am not allowed to put infoboxes on articles unless other editors deem it necessary?
If I had placed an info box without the consent of majority of the editors in that article, what gives you more right to make sure that there is no info box on that same article?
- Established procedure is to go to the article's Talk page, look for existing discussions on the topic, and see if there is a consensus. If none exists, you can start a discussion thread. Generally when there has been discussion of whether to add an infobox to Classical musician bios, the consensus has been to not add them. MisterCSharp (talk) 14:41, 7 October 2014 (UTC)

- Welcome to Wikipedia, Truthwarrior55. I find it interesting that your first edit under this username is to request me to add links to sources. Point 1. If you want to insert a link as a reference, do it yourself. Point 2. Political instituts and blogs are not considered valid sources. Request denied.MisterCSharp (talk) 11:23, 8 April 2015 (UTC)

Hi, MisterCSharp. Re: this edit you said “Nationality is based on when subject became notable.” I wonder could you direct me to the relevant part of MoS? (I have no ax to grid here!) Many thanks. Martinevans123 (talk) 13:50, 4 January 2018 (UTC)
