Saint Amphilochios article[edit]

Thank you for the article on Saint Amphilochios. However, for legal reasons, we cannot accept articles that have been copied from external websites.

The article has been deleted; if you wish to re-create it, you may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. Understand? DS 13:31, 17 September 2006 (UTC)

I am the other of this article! I have published it also at my website "Saint Job Journal". The article is my own work!

Sources[edit]

Okay. I understand what you're saying, but the problem is: what evidence do we have that you are the author of the article? Anyone could say "I wrote that".

So, if you want to let the article be on Wikipedia (and first, let me make sure you understand: if your article is on Wikipedia, that means that other people are allowed to change it. Are you sure you want that?), here is what you should do.

On the bottom of the page at the Saint Job's Journal website, you should put in a sentence saying something about how "I, Roman Zacharij, the author of this article, release it under the terms of the GFDL."

Once that's done, you can re-submit the article to Wikipedia, and include a note that it was originally published on the SJJ site.

Okay? DS 16:14, 17 September 2006 (UTC)


Check my Saint Job's Journal again. Below the essay on Saint Amphilochios I have added a clear statement that it is me who is the author of that article and that I am sharing it also with Wikepedia. If you find some addition material on Saint Amphilochios (for that you need to be fluent in Ukrainian or Russian at least), as in English I have not found any material on him, feel free to add to my wikepedia article. Remember we dont live in the communist time where religion was considered opium for the people (at least not in Ukraine today, perhaps in Canada it is so). The religious phenomena and countless lives of Catholic and Orthodox saints should be presented in an objective Orthodox / Catholic style (what we have right to) not in the communist atheistic disbelieving manners. God bless you! Roman Zacharij 16:31, 17 September 2006 (UTC)

Comment[edit]

Okay, the GFDL notice on the page at the SJJ is fine (and I notice you specified that it was only that article, which is good also; if you want to release other articles, you'll have to do them individually as well). I'm sorry you were upset, but we do have to be fairly strict about copyright problems here - imagine how you would feel if someone else had submitted it to Wikipedia, without telling you!

Oh, and for future reference, you should leave people messages on their talk pages, not their userpages. DS 16:46, 17 September 2006 (UTC)


I am a Christian and I do not lie. At least I try to act according with moral principles. Roman Zacharij 16:53, 17 September 2006 (UTC)
That's fine - but, like I said: until you added the GFDL notice to the original article on the SJJ, we had no way of knowing that you were REALLY Roman Zacharij. We've had this sort of problem before - people saying "oh, of course I wrote that article! Trust me!", and then it turned out that they had nothing to do with it, and just didn't think there was anything wrong with what they were doing.
If everyone acted according to moral principles, this would be a much better world - but not everyone does. You understand that, I'm sure! DS 21:59, 17 September 2006 (UTC)

Ukrainian topics[edit]

Hi there! I see that you edit Ukraine-related topics. Let me add a link to Ukraine portal at Wikipedia where you can find several links of interest if you want to contribute to the Ukraine-related topics. Also don't forget to announce your newly created Ukraine-related articles at the new article announcement board. By the way, I see that you have a online photogallery about Kiev. Would you allow us to upload your images here with whatever licence you choose? Cheers, —dima/s-ko/ 20:22, 22 September 2006 (UTC)

License tagging for Image:Berezhany 7.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Berezhany 7.jpg. Wikipedia gets thousands of images uploaded every day, and in order to verify that the images can be legally used on Wikipedia, the source and copyright status must be indicated. Images need to have an image tag applied to the image description page indicating the copyright status of the image. This uniform and easy-to-understand method of indicating the license status allows potential re-users of the images to know what they are allowed to do with the images.

For more information on using images, see the following pages:

This is an automated notice by OrphanBot. If you need help on selecting a tag to use, or in adding the tag to the image description, feel free to post a message at Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. 17:05, 30 September 2006 (UTC)

Hi, I have tagged the image for you, so it will not get deleted. In the future, please do not forget to tag the images with the appropriate tag. Cheers, —dima/s-ko/ 17:07, 30 September 2006 (UTC)

External links[edit]

Thanks for your effort to add external links to Ukraine. May I ask you to go through them one more time and purge some of them. We have to be very selective with them as the list of good links for such a broad topic as Ukraine can grow infinetely. As a rule of thumb, links to commercial sites are to be avoided in most cases. I thought I would rather ask you than go through your links myself, since it would take me longer to sort out through the links that you already know. Thanks, --Irpen 17:51, 13 October 2006 (UTC)

Petrushevych[edit]

Kudos for creating the article. Could you please add the reference section in the end and quote the sources you used? I do not doubt anything you wrote but if we are to DYK article, lack of sources might derail the nomination. TIA, --Irpen 01:39, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

Happy New Year![edit]

File:1953 S Novym Godom.jpg
Happy New Year! (Ukrainian: З Новим Роком!, Russian: С Новым Годом!). I wish you in 2007 to be spared of the real life troubles so that you will continue to care about Wikipedia. We will all make it a better encyclopedia! I also wish things here run smoothly enough to have our involvement in Wikipedia space at minimum, so that we can spend more time at Main. --Irpen

Image:Frankivsk455.jpg[edit]

Hi. When you uploaded Image:Frankivsk455.jpg, you did not specify complete source and copyright information. Another user subsequently tagged it with {{GFDL-presumed}} and, for some time, it has existed on Wikipedia under the assumption that you created the image and you agreed to license it under the GFDL. This assumption, however well-meaning, is not legally sufficient and the tag is being phased out. Images using it are being deleted.

This image has been tagged for deletion and will be deleted in one week if adequate copyright information is not provided.

If you, personally, are the author of this content, meaning that you took the photograph yourself or you created the chart yourself (and it does not use any clipart that you did not create), please retag the image with a free image copyright tag that correctly describes your licensing intentions, usually {{GFDL-self}} or {{PD-self}}. Please also make sure if you have not already done so that you write a good description of what the image depicts, when you took the photo, and other important details. This will allow Wikipedia to continue using the image.

If you did not create the image or if it is derived from the copyrighted works of others, please keep in mind that most images on the internet are copyrighted and are not suitable for use on Wikipedia. Wikipedia respects the copyrights of others and does not use images unless we know that they have been freely licensed. Any creative work is automatically copyrighted, even if it lacks a copyright notice. Unless the copyright holder has specifically disclaimed their rights to the image and released it under the GFDL or another compatible license, we cannot use it. If you did not create the image, and cannot make the image compliant with Wikipedia:Non-free content, simply do nothing and it will be deleted in a week. All other non-free images must follow these rules.

Please feel free to contact me on my talk page or leave a message at Wikipedia:Media copyright questions with any questions you may have. Thank you. Aksibot 08:32, 3 June 2007 (UTC)

Meir Balaban[edit]

Hello, Roman! I'd like you to know that I've started some copyediting (mainly to standardize the English) and Wikifying (e.g. adding internal links) of the page you created on Meir Balaban. I'll be returning to it at intervals, as time allows. Please check my edits from time to time by comparing versions in the page's history, to see that I didn't misunderstand something to the best of your knowledge. If I have any particular questions, I'll ask here or on the article's talk page. You can get an idea of my credentials on my User page. I note with interest your repertoire of languages and look forward to collaborating with you (in the positive sense of the word :-) -- Cheers, Deborahjay (talk) 22:37, 23 January 2008 (UTC)


Roman, Can you provide additional details on Meir's 1921 article Auto da Fe w Lwowie w r. 1728 in Cwila? I assume that it deals with the martyred Raitzes (Reizes) brothers that happened in Lviv that year. Does any English translation of the article exist? Thanks KosherJava (talk) 21:21, 5 February 2008 (UTC)

For that I would need that copy of Chwila newspaper, what I do not have at hand here. It might be that you are right. --Roman Zacharij (talk) 21:39, 30 March 2008 (UTC)

Re: Persian names[edit]

Roman, Sorry, I don't know the Persian translation of any of those names. —behdad (talk) 03:29, 29 November 2008 (UTC)

  • Hi!
    It seems that was customary to change their name after becoming Christians and the new name was not a translation of the older name . So I think it may not be possible to know their Persian name before conversion . Anyway I think this link (under section CHAPTER IV,THE GREAT PERSECUTION OF SAPOR II) can be a help for you if you are interested . There are many names in the text that I was not able to correlate them with the Saints that are of your concern : names like Shimun, are ethnic Assyrian names that are not Persian , but names like Yazidpanah,Dad-Hormizd,Gusht-azad and Yazdun-docht are ancient Persian names and I can translate their meaning for you - if you think it is related.--Alborz Fallah (talk) 16:21, 29 November 2008 (UTC)

Kozova[edit]

The Kozova page, even as a stub, needs cleanup. I've alerted the Ukraine WikiProject and thought to inform you too, as the page's creator. -- Deborahjay (talk) 21:03, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

History of the Jews in Brody[edit]

I'd like to thank you, on behalf of WP:WikiProject Jewish History, for writing the article History of the Jews in Brody. Have you considered nominating the article to be on Wikipedia's front page as part of WP:Did you know? Please leave me a message if you have any questions. — Malik Shabazz Talk/Stalk 03:43, 10 October 2010 (UTC)

Byrnstan[edit]

I noticed the material you added to the above article (when it was under the title Birstan) was copied directly from Farmer, David Hugh (1978), Oxford Dictionary of Saints, Oxford University Press, pp. 43–44, ISBN 0-19-283036-8 . Copying directly from a copyrighted source is a violation of copyright and as such those particular edits have been deleted; the reasons are explained here. Material needs to be rewritten in editors' own words. Is this likely to have been a problem for any other articles? Nev1 (talk) 13:54, 26 December 2010 (UTC)

Then you should have removed just the passage from the Oxford dictionary. You did not have any legal grounds to remove the entire article. Please restore the article, having removed the quote from the "Oxford dictionary" only. RZ

Hi, it looks like History of the Jews in Brody also contains text from this source. As your user name is the same as the name of the author of the article, presumably you are one and the same. However, if you want your work to appear on Wikipedia verbatim you need to donate it. Information on how to do that can be found at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. Nev1 (talk) 23:44, 26 December 2010 (UTC)

I can remove the source article from website or make it unaccessable for you (as this is no publication (!) but my personal archive where I store my stuff) as I have put so much work to publish this article on the Jews of Brody on wikipedia which you removed just with one stroke. RZ

Problem with your edit to Persian people[edit]

Hello Roman Zacharij. When you edited the article Persian people on November 6 (this edit), you accidently introduced some sort of formatting error into the infobox which caused the box to not work properly at all (it just ended halfway through with an error message and the rest of the info was put at the top of the article, with the text). I tried to correct the error and still preserve the material you added, but I couldn't work out what was wrong with the formatting, so I decided to just revert the page to before you edited it. Of course that means your reference (I think it was about Ukraine) is now deleted from the page, so if you want to put it back in you'll have to work out how to do it without breaking the infobox. So like I said, this is just to inform you that I had to revert your edit, and because I don't know how to fix it, you'll need to do that yourself. --Hibernian (talk) 02:12, 11 November 2012 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

I actually tried to fix the problem but didnt succeed. So I appreciate your help. That info-box is loaded with all kinds of templates making it very hard to find one´s way there. Anyway my info that I wanted to introduce wasnt so important.
