Speedy deletion of "MS Lastochka"[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A page you created, MS Lastochka, has been tagged for deletion, as it meets one or more of the criteria for speedy deletion; specifically, it is nonsense or gibberish.

You are welcome to contribute content which complies with our content policies and any applicable inclusion guidelines. However, please do not simply re-create the page with the same content. You may also wish to read our introduction to editing and guide to writing your first article.

Thank you. Ndenison talk 21:23, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

License tagging for File:Lastochka MS Kharkov UA.JPG[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Lastochka MS Kharkov UA.JPG. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information; to add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia.

For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 13:05, 25 January 2009 (UTC)

User notice: 3RR[edit]

Regarding reversions[1] made on March 3 2009 to Kharkiv Metro[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war. Note that the three-revert rule prohibits making more than three reversions on a single page within a 24 hour period. Additionally, users who perform a large number of reversions in content disputes may be blocked for edit warring, even if they do not technically violate the three-revert rule. If you continue, you may be blocked from editing. Please do not repeatedly revert edits, but use the talk page to work towards wording and content that gains a consensus among editors. If necessary, pursue dispute resolution.

You may also need to read WP:CIVIL too

You don't seem to be listening, for example Kharkiv University, so I've blocked you for 24h William M. Connolley (talk) 22:08, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

You have been blocked from editing for a period of 48 hours in accordance with Wikipedia's blocking policy for engaging in an edit war at Kharkiv Metro. Please be more careful to discuss controversial changes or seek dispute resolution rather than engaging in an edit war. If you believe this block is unjustified, you may contest the block by adding the text {{unblock|your reason here}} below. Deacon of Pndapetzim (Talk) 16:51, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

Request reason:

First of all, I have started no edit war! Why is it not allowed to use both Kharkov and Kharkiv? Why shall I use Kharkiv only? Because radical Ukrainian nationalists think so!? I love Ukraine as well, but the city natives usually say Kharkov, why can't be there any pluralism? How is that? P.S. I tried to make compromise, but no one else wanted! So thanks for blocking! I guess all of those who share my opinion are already blocked too! Continue on the same lines! -- Whiteroll (talk) 20:32, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

Decline reason:

You certainly did edit war. It doesn't really matter who started it, people who inflame it by reverting repeatedly get blocked to prevent the collateral damage caused by such situations. As for "Kharkov" vs "Kharkiv" you need to discuss that with the other users of the page, but keep in mind that switching back and forth between two spellings would be confusing to a reader.

If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first, then use the {{unblock}} template again. If you make too many unconvincing or disruptive unblock requests, you may be prevented from editing this page until your block has expired.

You need to learn the rules. First off, simply being right (for example) is not sufficient justification for edit warring. If you're still unsure, come over to my talk page once you're unblocked and we can discuss further William M. Connolley (talk) 21:01, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

I think, now there is some error! I should have been unblocked a few hours ago! Please check up! -- Whiteroll (talk) 18:12, 7 March 2009 (UTC)

As the original block looks to have expired, I've cleared a lingering autoblock; try editing, now? – Luna Santin (talk) 21:23, 7 March 2009 (UTC)

Warning

Please refrain from undoing other people's edits repeatedly. If you continue, you may be blocked from editing Wikipedia. Note that the three-revert rule prohibits making more than three reversions in a content dispute within a 24 hour period. Additionally, users who perform a large number of reversions in content disputes may be blocked for edit warring, even if they do not technically violate the three-revert rule. Rather than reverting, discuss disputed changes on the talk page. The revision you want is not going to be implemented by edit warring. Thank you. Ostap 01:53, 9 March 2009 (UTC)

Personal attacks[edit]

Information.svg Please see Wikipedia's no personal attacks policy. Comment on content, not on contributors. Personal attacks damage the community and deter users. Note that continued personal attacks will lead to blocks for disruption. Please stay cool and keep this in mind while editing. Thank you. — NickK (talk) 10:56, 9 March 2009 (UTC)

Please stop. If you continue to make personal attacks on other people, you will be blocked for disruption. Comment on content, not on other contributors or people. Thank you. — NickK (talk) 12:02, 9 March 2009 (UTC)

March 2009[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg Please do not vandalize pages, as you did with this edit to User talk:Nick UA. If you continue to do so, you will be blocked from editing. Versus22 talk 23:38, 9 March 2009 (UTC)

Moving[edit]

Don't move articles using copypasting. Use {{Db-move}} instead.--Anatoliy (Talk) 23:56, 9 March 2009 (UTC)

Nuvola apps important.svg Please stop. If you continue to move pages to bad titles contrary to naming conventions or consensus, as you did to Kharkiv Metro, you will be blocked from editing Wikipedia. ddima.talk 00:01, 10 March 2009 (UTC)

You have been blocked from editing for a period of 55 hours in accordance with Wikipedia's blocking policy for engaging in an edit war at Kharkiv Metro.

Reverts[edit]

This is really a bad way to come back from your third edit war block in 7 days. If you keep this up you will be blocked for a long time. How about discussing on talk page without personal attacks? Ostap 16:52, 12 March 2009 (UTC)

Stop x nuvola with clock.svg
You have been blocked from editing for a period of 2 weeks in accordance with Wikipedia's blocking policy for edit warring. Since your THIRD block for edit warring in one month ended, you have resumed reversion warring of the same article with zero discussion on your part. You do not seem to have taken on board what has been explained to you about engaging with other editors and achieving consensus. Please make sure you have understood this by the end of this block and start applying it to your editing as continued disruptive behavior cannot be tolerated for the good of the encyclopedia as a whole.. You are welcome to make useful contributions after the block expires. If you believe this block is unjustified you may contest this block by adding the text {{unblock|Your reason here}} below. Mfield (talk) 03:18, 15 March 2009 (UTC)

I am truly amazed. Ostap 21:41, 29 March 2009 (UTC)

Category:Publications established in 1811[edit]

For every category you create, you should specify parent categories to which it belongs. You can do this by listing the parents near the bottom of the page, each enclosed in double brackets like so:

[[Category:1811 establishments]]
[[Category:Publications by year of establishment]]

I am a human being, not a bot, so you can contact me if you have questions about this. Best regards, --Stepheng3 (talk) 18:16, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

Please stop[edit]

You know that if you keep doing this you will eventually be blocked indefinitely? If you don't want a long block please stop edit warring. Thanks Ostap 01:50, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

Blocked, 1 month[edit]

Stop x nuvola with clock.svg
I have blocked you for 1 month for repeated tendentious edit-warring [2] and personal attacks (e.g. [3]). If you feel this block is unfair, you may contest the block by adding the text {{unblock|Your reason here}} below. Deacon of Pndapetzim (Talk) 12:31, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

Request reason:

Sure I do, this block is unfair! They prompt me to edit war, I try to prove my opinion but they don't hear, in fact they don't want to hear cos they are in a majority! And you don't block them, you prefer to block me. Of course, you keep these ridiculous mere formalities, but one month is too long. I expect a commutation — Whiteroll (talk) 12:56, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

Decline reason:

Blocks usually increase in length. Your last block was two weeks, so a month is an appropriate length for this one. No one else can force you to edit-war, because you are responsible for your own actions. If the majority disagrees with you, even after you've tried the solutions at WP:DISPUTE, then perhaps you should consider that the consensus is against you, and gracefully accept that.

If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first, then use the {{unblock}} template again. If you make too many unconvincing or disruptive unblock requests, you may be prevented from editing this page until your block has expired.

I've reset your block because of evasion. Deacon of Pndapetzim (Talk) 14:56, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

Page moves[edit]

Information.svg Please do not move a page to a title that is harder to follow or move it unilaterally against naming conventions or consensus. This includes making page moves while a discussion remains under way. We have some guidelines to help with deciding what title is best for a subject. If you would like to experiment with page titles and moving, please use the test Wikipedia. Thank you. — NickK (talk) 18:55, 8 May 2009 (UTC)
