Acting Presidents of the Russian Federation[edit]

thanks for creating the category. however, you didnt actually put anything in it, making it a bit pointless; if someone needs to categorise an article as such, they'll create it themselves; instead someone now has to spend time deleting a wasted and unpopulated category.

Howdy, SeNeKa, Welcome to Wikipedia!

Thank you for your contributions, you seem to be off to a good start. Hopefully you will soon join the vast army of Wikipediholics!

For general questions goto Wikipedia:Help or the FAQ, if you can't find your answer there check the Village Pump (for Wikipedia related questions) or the Reference Desk (for general questions)! There's still more help at the Tutorial and Policy Library. Plus, don't forget to visit the Community Portal. If you have any more questions after that, feel free to ask me directly on my user talk page.

United Nations Secretaries-General[edit]

hi! i just wanted to let you know i made the changes to the acting, because this box is used to identify the succession. it is not intended to be an infobox, which would litter up the box with all sorts of qualifiers. ancillary data is in the related articles. cheers! --emerson7 04:49, 14 February 2008 (UTC)

indeed...can we please stop this and discuss? --emerson7 19:09, 16 February 2008 (UTC)
let's please not start this again.... --emerson7 02:48, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

Edit warring[edit]

Stop reverting each other on Template:UNSecretary-General. Please use the talk page and come to a consensus for changes. If you continue to edit war, the page could be protected from editing and / or you could be blocked from editing. Please see Wikipedia:Three-revert rule, Wikipedia:Edit war, Wikipedia:Protection policy#Content disputes and Wikipedia:Blocking policy#Disruption for more information. - Rjd0060 (talk) 15:59, 16 February 2008 (UTC)

February 2008[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to make constructive contributions to Wikipedia, at least one of your recent edits, such as the one you made to Africa Cup of Nations, did not appear to be constructive and has been reverted or removed. Please use the sandbox for any test edits you would like to make, and take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you.

Sorry, my bad BanRay 19:54, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Please stop[edit]

You appear to be moving content from multiple football articles into templates, only to transclude those templates back onto the same pages. Please note that there is widespread Wikipedia consensus to NOT use single-use templates like this. Please undo these changes. — Andrwsc (talk · contribs) 19:47, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

  • I've reverted all the pages mentioned above, and tagged all templates created for speedy deletion. Please don't do this again. Chanheigeorge (talk) 21:35, 19 February 2008 (UTC)


Hi. You might want to read the manual of style on flags before adding them to any more articles. Basically we do not use them like that to show births and deaths in biographical infoboxes; think yourself, what does  United Kingdom have that United Kingdom doesn't, in an encyclopedia for adults? --John (talk) 17:31, 12 March 2008 (UTC)

Please do some background reading[edit]

Quite a few of the comments on your talk page are really suggesting that you read a bit more about some of our accepted practices on Wikipedia - practices which we have arrived at by consensus, because they are useful to everybody.

Can I please commend another such practice to you - using edit summaries. When you edit a page, in any way (big or small), use the edit summary box to leave a succinct explanation of what you've done, and why you did it. This helps other editors when reviewing articles, and also helps us to understand your motives.

I have reverted your recent edit to Sovereign Military Order of Malta. The map which you deleted is used as the location map for both SMOM and the Vatican City, and is helpful to readers. I do not know why you removed it, because you left no edit summary! I think you would find it useful to do some more background reading about how Wikipedia works. Timothy Titus Talk To TT 17:01, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

Flags of cities[edit]

Please stop adding flags of cities to Russian football articles. They really add nothing to them.  ARTYOM  17:03, 4 April 2008 (UTC)


I saw this edit. Please by civil. --WoohookittyWoohoo! 10:37, 12 April 2008 (UTC)

We don't protect specific versions. We just protect the page as we come to it. --WoohookittyWoohoo! 10:43, 12 April 2008 (UTC)
Talk it out with the other user. That's the best way to handle it. Until some sort of agreement is made or the sides calm down, the page will stay protected. --WoohookittyWoohoo! 11:13, 12 April 2008 (UTC)

Your recent edits[edit]

Hi there. In case you didn't know, when you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion, you should sign your posts by typing four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment. If you can't type the tilde character, you should click on the signature button Button sig.png located above the edit window. This will automatically insert a signature with your name and the time you posted the comment. This information is useful because other editors will be able to tell who said what, and when. Thank you! --SineBot (talk) 11:20, 12 April 2008 (UTC)

Flag of Iran[edit]

Please dont change this template, Country flag or State flag, Iran participated at olympics (before 1979) under lion and sun flag. look at this, and this photo, is it enough ?--Mohsen1248 (talk) 21:57, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

Wrong Venezuelan flag[edit]

Why did you change the Venezuelan flag and coat of arms with images that do not represent the actual flag or coat of arms in the article Venezuela?. If you even look closely, the coat of arms you uploaded is not even the same as the one in the flag that you also uploaded.

I work for the Venezuelan government and I believe that you are misinformed or you might just be vandalizing this page on purpose. You can take a look at what the real symbols are at the official Venezuelan government web portal at:

Let me know why did you make such changes before getting a wikipedia editor in this dispute.

Template:Prime Ministers of Russia[edit]

Hi. Any particular reason or reasons for the above? Sardanaphalus (talk) 06:49, 25 June 2008 (UTC)


Out of curiosity, can you explain me the use of this edit? It involves quite many changes, but I cannot see any difference in the result. Tomeasy T C 14:53, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

    • There were remnants of vandalism.

EU, flags in the infobox[edit]

In case you did not know: please have a look at this, very recent and elaborate discussion Talk:European_Union#Flag_icons. You will see that your recent repeated moves to introduce the icons in the infobox act against consensus. I trust, you were not aware of this situation and hope you will stop reverting the editors that restore the agreed version. Thanks. Tomeasy T C 15:37, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

This is quite ignorant and clearly violates WP:CONS. If you feel the discussion was absurd, you are free to reopen the issue. Until consensus changes, please refrain from repeating your edit. Tomeasy T C 16:01, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

Mongolia on CIS map[edit]

Hello SeNeKa,

I looked at the CIS article and saw that Mongolia had been coloured in on the map as a participant in some projects to reflect that it "participates as an observer in a number of economic activities of the CIS", but don't you think a separate colour (maybe a light green?) would be better to indicate Mongolia as an observer? After all, I think Ukraine and Mongolia definitely fall into different categories since Ukraine signed and ratified the creation agreement and joined such projects as the inter-parliamentary assembly, while Mongolia has done none of those things. (talk) 04:11, 2 December 2008 (UTC)

Mongolia formation date[edit]

I've reverted your edit in Mongolia article as your opinion is not wellsourced. Rupublic of China formation date is later than Mongolian independency date. Bogomolov.PL (talk) 17:55, 6 December 2008 (UTC)

Federal subjects[edit]

Hi, SeNeKa! While I understand your desire to improve the table in this edit of yours, please note that the outer table (the presence of which is discussed in much detail on the talk page) is not there simply to make things pretty (or ugly, depending on whom you ask). It actually allows one to determine the position of a federal subject in the table when it is sorted by population or area (a feature that your edit killed). The sorting capability, on the other hand, was included because the table is the target of multiple incoming links from the List of federal subjects of Russia by area and List of federal subjects of Russia by population redirects, which are included into the federal subjects infobox. After your edit, readers who would want to see the list of federal subjects sorted by population/area, will be redirected to this table with no indication of why. Since you started editing this segment, please have this oversight fixed as soon as possible (prefence-wise, I don't really care how you'll fix it; all that matters is that previously established backlinks should be making sense once again). Thanks.—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); 16:49, December 22, 2008 (UTC)


Don't do it again. That's not funny. Moscvitch (talk) 00:43, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

  • SeNeKa, I have noticed that you have altered many articles claiming that on 31 January Chubais became Prime Minister of Russia. Where have you got this idea from? Is your account compromised or what? Alex Bakharev (talk) 01:21, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

Kosmos satellites[edit]

Please stop unilaterally renaming articles related to Kosmos satellites. Both spellings are currently in widespread use, and there is currently no consensus to standardise on the spelling "Cosmos". WP:RUS supports the spelling "Kosmos", as does the fact that the vast majority of other Russian (and Chinese, North Korean, etc) satellites/spacecraft/rockets/etc use transliterated names rather than translated names, so the moves are inappropriate. --GW 13:28, 25 May 2009 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image (File:Dzhokhar Dudayev 140-190 for collage.jpg)[edit]


Thanks for uploading File:Dzhokhar Dudayev 140-190 for collage.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of "file" pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Papa November (talk) 01:28, 19 August 2009 (UTC)

Your moves[edit]

You just moved Moscow theater hostage crisis to 2002 Moscow theater hostage crisis, but there was only one "Moscow theater hostage crisis" in 2002. You also made a lot of other similat moves. Could you please ask opinions of other users at the article talk page prior to making any unilateral moves? All moves must be done per WP:Consensus. Thank you.Biophys (talk) 20:39, 13 September 2009 (UTC)

Since you did not reply, I assume that you agree with me. Thank you.Biophys (talk) 13:08, 14 September 2009 (UTC)


Hi. I have noticed that you have added a lot of people to Category:Mordvins. For many people, e.g. Vasily Shukshin it is not supported by the text of the article, nor it is a matter of a common spread public knowledge. Please either provide supporting references to the articles or remove the category. Alex Bakharev (talk) 01:21, 24 September 2009 (UTC)

Osh riots[edit]

Regarding your move of this article to 1990 Osh riots... are there any other significant riots that happened in Osh and would have Wikipedia articles? If not, there's probably no need for a date disambiguator. rʨanaɢ talk/contribs 14:48, 28 September 2009 (UTC)


Well... the article is about the British Colony, not the South African Province. You're not the first one to mix them up. Trouble is, there is no article on Transvaal (Province). You might wanna start one. Choyoołʼįįhí:Seb az86556 17:30, 2 November 2009 (UTC)

  • OK. Because English Wikipedia don't have separate article for SA Province, i added them in Transvaal Colony article. But I very bad knowing English, I don't make new article--SeNeKa (talk) 17:36, 2 November 2009 (UTC)

Federal districts maps[edit]

Hi, SeNeKa! Thanks for updating the map of the Southern Federal District. I would, however, want to ask you for a favor—could you please revert that update and upload the new map under a new name? It would be helpful to us to have maps of both old and new Southern FD; this way they can be shown side by side for comparison. When the map is simply overwritten, that is not possible.

Also, would you be capable of producing a similar map for the NCFD? Thanks!—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); 17:29, January 21, 2010 (UTC)

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 18:32, 19 June 2010 (UTC)
