Hello, I'm Bookworm857158367. I wanted to let you know that I undid one or more of your recent contributions to Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna of Russia because it didn't appear constructive. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks! Bookworm857158367 (talk) 18:40, 26 March 2013 (UTC)

April 2013[edit]

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on World War I. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Please be particularly aware, Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made; that is to say, editors are not automatically "entitled" to three reverts.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing. Favonian (talk) 22:06, 6 April 2013 (UTC)

Stop hand nuvola.svg This is your last warning. You may be blocked from editing without further warning the next time you vandalize a page, as you did with this edit to Marxism. Lugia2453 (talk) 22:10, 6 April 2013 (UTC)

Joseph Stalin[edit]

There is no "correct" transliteration from Russian. We follow WP:Commonname, and the name should match in the article title and body text. You can start a motion on the talk page to rename the article, but until a consensus is reached, please do not change the name. Materialscientist (talk) 23:50, 6 April 2013 (UTC)

Romanov articles[edit]

Stop adding the surnames to the Romanov articles. They aren't necessary. --Bookworm857158367 (talk) 02:42, 7 April 2013 (UTC)

The correct spelling of someone's name is actually very necessaryUrfinze (talk) 13:57, 7 April 2013 (UTC)
Take it to the talk pages. This change is controversial and requires consensus. --Bookworm857158367 (talk) 17:44, 7 April 2013 (UTC)
OK, but there is nothing controversial in that, it's a very well known fact, I don't know why the English Wikipedia has denied thisUrfinze (talk) 10:17, 9 April 2013 (UTC)
There is no 'English Wikipedia', only editors volunteering their time. We don't work with 'well known facts' but reliably sourced and varified tertiary sources. Span (talk) 12:36, 9 April 2013 (UTC)
You have been blocked from editing for a period of 24 hours for edit warring, as you did at World War I. Once the block has expired, you are welcome to make useful contributions. If you think there are good reasons why you should be unblocked, you may appeal this block by adding below this notice the text {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}}, but you should read the guide to appealing blocks first.

During a dispute, you should first try to discuss controversial changes and seek consensus. If that proves unsuccessful, you are encouraged to seek dispute resolution, and in some cases it may be appropriate to request page protection.  Favonian (talk) 17:08, 7 April 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for April 9[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Svetlana Alliluyeva, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Vesti (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). 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.

Siberia and Central Asia[edit]

Honestly, I'm amazed that you didn't see Siberia all over the sources (you read them right?), but hey everyone's clumsy sometimes. I'll give you one of the many quotes from one attesting as much:

That's from page 60 of Amjad Jaimoukha's The Chechens: A Handbook. I could give you so many more. This is actually a very basic piece of information. I hope this issue is resolved now. --Yalens (talk) 15:54, 19 April 2013 (UTC)

The link you posted to Dunlop's book doesn't even include the section on the deportation... later on, he says (repeatedly) that they were sent to Siberia, but that section isn't in your link. --Yalens (talk) 16:17, 19 April 2013 (UTC)
The problem with these sources is that they don't give any evidence or documentary proof of Siberian deportation of Chechens. They just give this, as if it were a well-known fact, and then continue to talk in detail about the deportations to Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan, no longer mentioning the word Siberia. The fact is that the cliche 'send to Siberia " become so common in Western culture that it was automatically added to the story of the chechen deportation and now roams from one edition to another. Another theory consists in fact that they can be considered the North-eastern parts of Kazakhstan as Siberia. In reality the Chechens have never been deported to Siberia. If you know Russian - you can study the documents on deportations where you didn't find a single mention of Siberia or If no - here some excerpts . You can also take a watch on the russian article for a detailed itemized of areas and republics of the Soviet Union where Chechens and Ingush were sent. Also, as I always mentioned, you can find a huge Chechen diaspora in Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan, where they still make up a significant minority, but you will not find a single Chechen in Siberia.

Your contributed article, Azerbaijanis infobox[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

Hello, I noticed that you recently created a new page, Azerbaijanis infobox. First, thank you for your contribution; Wikipedia relies solely on the efforts of volunteers such as you. Unfortunately, the page you created covers a topic on which we already have a page – Azerbaijani people. Because of the duplication, your article has been tagged for speedy deletion. Please note that this is not a comment on you personally and we hope you will continue helping to improve Wikipedia. If the topic of the article you created is one that interests you, then perhaps you would like to help out at Azerbaijani people – you might like to discuss new information at the article's talk page.

If you think the article you created should remain separate, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. Additionally if you would like to have someone review articles you create before they go live so they are not nominated for deletion shortly after you post them, allow me to suggest the article creation process and using our search feature to find related information we already have in the encyclopedia. Try not to be discouraged. Wikipedia looks forward to your future contributions.  Tentinator  16:16, 2 May 2013 (UTC)

May 2013[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Tourism in Ukraine may have broken the syntax by modifying 2 "[]"s. If you have, don't worry, just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

Thanks, BracketBot (talk) 12:39, 20 May 2013 (UTC)

October 2013[edit]

Information icon Please do not remove information from articles, as you did to Vladimir Putin. Wikipedia is not censored, and content is not removed on the sole grounds of perceived offensiveness. Please discuss this issue on the article's talk page to reach consensus rather than continuing to remove the disputed material. If the content in question involves images, you also have the option to configure Wikipedia to hide the images that you may find offensive. Thank you. Paris1127 (talk) 20:04, 8 October 2013 (UTC)

Yuri Gagarin[edit]

You appear to be engaged in an effort to whitewash any negative material from the Yuri Gagarin article. This is highly inappropriate behaviour, considering all the material you disagree with have been sourced to highly reliable references. If you have a problem with something in an any article (not just Gagarin's), raise the issue on the article's talk page and gain consensus amongst the local editors. Please let me know if you have any questions. Huntster (t @ c) 23:23, 8 October 2013 (UTC)

January 2014[edit]

Information icon Please refrain from making unconstructive edits to Wikipedia, as you did at Polygyny in Islam. Your edits appear to constitute vandalism and have been reverted or removed. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. Administrators can block users from editing if they repeatedly vandalize. Thank you. Charles (talk) 18:03, 26 January 2014 (UTC)

Your recent editing history at Azerbaijani people shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. 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.

To avoid being blocked, instead of reverting please consider using the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. See BRD for how this is done. You can post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Notice of Edit warring noticeboard discussion[edit]

Information icon Hello. This message is being sent to inform you that there is currently a discussion involving you at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Edit warring regarding a possible violation of Wikipedia's policy on edit warring. The thread is Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Edit warring#User:Urfinze reported by User:Thomas.W (Result: ). Thank you. Thomas.W talk to me 18:59, 29 January 2014 (UTC)

There may still be time for you to respond at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Edit warring#User:Urfinze reported by User:Thomas.W (Result: ). You should promise to wait for consensus before reverting again. Otherwise you may be blocked for breaking the WP:3RR rule. Thank you, EdJohnston (talk) 23:40, 29 January 2014 (UTC)
