I guess you are from Moldova, judging by your contributions, or not? Are you Russian or Romanian? Just wondering. You can reply here, I will keep your page on my watchlist. Cheers, Oleg Alexandrov (talk) 02:16, 26 November 2005 (UTC)

Yes, I am from Moldova. My native language is Russian, but I can speak Romanian fluently as well. --Zserghei 09:07, 26 November 2005 (UTC)


Hey, I use firefox on Linux too! :) Where are you contributing from? Oleg Alexandrov (talk) 02:18, 26 November 2005 (UTC)

Hi. If you mean, do I use Linux at home, yes, I do. Actually I use Linux for almost all purposes. --Zserghei 09:00, 26 November 2005 (UTC)
I use Linux for all practical purposes too, but I have Windows on my laptop because the wireless card does not work with Linux. Are you in Moldova or abroad? Oleg Alexandrov (talk) 19:16, 26 November 2005 (UTC)
I study for MSc in Computer Systems Engineering in Denmark. --Zserghei 19:22, 26 November 2005 (UTC)

Serghei, tu vorbeşti româneşte? Constantzeanu 05:08, 6 January 2006 (UTC)

Da, eu vorbesc limba română. --Zserghei 09:20, 6 January 2006 (UTC)

frumos ca se invata si acolo :). eu stiam ca rusii nu prea invata romana in RM dar dupa cum vad asta e mai degraba o generalizare deja care nu mai tine de vremurile noastre. in orice caz ma uitam pe hartile alea a moldovei cu raioane si ma intrebam unde este si ce constituie raionul dubasari? ca parca acolo nu-l vad nicaieri. vorbesc de raionul dubasari adica asta nou nu cel de dinainte de 1989. eu credeam ca e format din cele 7 sate de pe malul stang al nistrului controlat inca de RM. e adevarat ori nu? Constantzeanu 22:24, 11 January 2006 (UTC)

Raionul Dubăsari conţine 10 sate pe malul stâng al Nistrului care sunt subordonate Chişinăului:
  • Cocieri
    • Vasilievca
  • Corjova
    • Mahala
  • Coşnita
    • Pohrebea
  • Molovata Noua
    • Roghi
  • Doroţcaia
  • Pârâta

şi 5 sate pe malul dreapt al Nistrului:

  • Molovata
  • Oxentea
  • Marcauţi
  • Holercani
  • Ustia

Poţi găsi pe harta ucraineană foarte detaliată: [1], [2]. Oraşul Dubăsari este controlat de Transnistria. --Zserghei 23:05, 11 January 2006 (UTC)

Mersi mult. M-am cam dumirit eu, dar deşi pot să citesc literele cirilice, nu am dat de Mahala şi nici de Corjova. Cumva sunt astea cartiere din Dubăsari sau din Grigoriopol? Că pe hartă nu cred că apar.

A propos, am rămas plăcut impresionat de contribuţile tale în limba engleză pe teme ce ţin de cultura românească. Constantzeanu 02:44, 12 January 2006 (UTC)

Eu ştiu numai coordinatele de Corjova (47°17'16"N,29°7'47"E) şi Mahala (47°16'0"N,29°8'59"E). Ei sunt doar comune suburbane de Dubăsari, deaceea nu sunt menţionate pe harta aşa de veche. Din păcate eu n-am harta Moldovei mai modernă. --Zserghei 08:49, 12 January 2006 (UTC)


Thanks. WikiThanks.

I would like to express my thanks to all the good people who spent their valuable time time and effort working on my (failed) RfA voting. Especially for those who actually voted to support me :). Lets move on and make together our Wikipedia an even greater place abakharev 09:51, 12 January 2006 (UTC)

discus thrower[edit]

I thank You very much for this very nice Image Image:Discus Thrower Copenhagen.jpg. I inserted this in Discobolus and in de:Diskobolos. I hope it's ok. --Mario todte 19:34, 12 January 2006 (UTC)

Yes, it's perfectly ok. --Zserghei 19:57, 12 January 2006 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Three-revert rule[edit]

Hi, watch out for the 3RR when reverting socks - it still applies :-( --Latinus 22:21, 7 March 2006 (UTC)

Thanks. --Zserghei 22:25, 7 March 2006 (UTC)
No it is not. RTFM. Malicious disruption see Wikipedia:Sock puppets. mikka (t) 22:28, 7 March 2006 (UTC)

Stub for Transnistria[edit]

Please see discussion on Wikipedia:Stub_types_for_deletion (scroll down to April 20, Transnistria). The "Stub Gods" don't know too much about the region, so it would be interesting to learn your opinion. So far, it has mostly been them, me, and an 'Delete'-vote from Andrei George, a confirmed sockpuppet of Bonaparte. - Mauco 13:16, 27 April 2006 (UTC)

The stubs stayed. I've now made a little over a hundred stubs for Transnistria, here: Category:Transnistria_stubs. If you have the time or the inclination then some of them could be expanded or moved into different languages, like Russian. - Mauco 00:52, 5 June 2006 (UTC)
Thanks for your work, you've introduced a lot of interesting topics. I'll expand some of them later. By the way, are you sure, that there exists "Administrative Region of Tiraspol" (I suppose it stands for "Tiraspolskii raion")? The reason for my question is that, for example, this site shows Transnistria separated into 5 administrative regions and 2 cities: Bendery and Tiraspol. --Zserghei 07:14, 5 June 2006 (UTC)
I am sure of the opposite: That no such region exists. Transnistria has 5 administrative regions and 2 "free cities". If you check the history for that particular stub, it wasn't created by me. I wonder where the creator of that stub got his or her info from; perhaps Moldovan legislation? The stub shouldn't be deleted, because it has some good content, but you can rename it because it would be a mistake for an encyclopedia - any encyclopedia - to keep info which is knowingly false. You are also very, very welcome to move some of these stubs into Russian. I can't do it because I don't have the necessary grasp of that language. Over time, having Russian mirrors of these stubs would be a good way to help get them expanded because there is more info available on many of these things in Russian, and some of the new data which will (hopefully) be added by others in the future can then be reimported back into the English versions to help expand those as well. - Mauco 13:30, 5 June 2006 (UTC)
I think that the better idea is to merge its current content with Tiraspol article and write that "Administrative Region of Tiraspol" existed only in time of Soviet Union. --Zserghei 15:10, 5 June 2006 (UTC)
Yes, much better. Will you do it? Or shall I? -Mauco 20:15, 5 June 2006 (UTC)


Hi Zserghei, thanks for the... 3 translations :-) Telex 13:11, 28 April 2006 (UTC)

You are welcome. --Zserghei 13:27, 28 April 2006 (UTC)


Я не возражаю. Я в ru сейчас захожу редко и я единственный, кто использовал этот шаблон (с subst-ом, естественно).  Grue  14:48, 1 May 2006 (UTC)

Спасибо. --Zserghei 15:13, 1 May 2006 (UTC)

RU/UA/RO Portals[edit]

Your username seems familiar but I don't remember for sure seeing you at the portals. Please note that there are Russia portal, Ukraine portal and Romania portal here at wiki. While I rarely stop by at the latter and its subpages, I know thoroughly about the former two as I took part in the creation of the both. As such, I recommend them to you if you are interested in the respective topics. The most important sub-pages of the portals are the "New Article announcement boards". Please find the appropriate windows at the portal's main pages and take a look. My appolologies if you already know all this and it's me who missed that. Cheers, --Irpen 17:49, 7 May 2006 (UTC)

Thank you for useful information. I've seen the portals, but haven't noticed "article announcement boards". I will keep my eye on them. --Zserghei 18:31, 7 May 2006 (UTC)

P.S. Are you in Moldova right now or you just come from there? Feel free to contact or email me for any reason. --Irpen 17:49, 7 May 2006 (UTC)

I am in Denmark right now, but I hope I'll visit Moldova and Ukraine in a couple of months. --Zserghei 18:31, 7 May 2006 (UTC)

This boards are a good idea to add to your watchlist too. See you! --Irpen 19:32, 7 May 2006 (UTC)


Zserghei, you and other original "top contributors" to Transnistria ought to come back from time to time and take a look at evolution of that page and its Talk page. Right now, we are having an informal poll on the inclusion, or not, of some links and we haven't had a lot of input yet from others. Talk:Transnistria#List_of_links_for_discussion If you have the time, please. - Mauco 05:53, 26 September 2006 (UTC)


Hi, one of your user scripts uses the addLoadEvent( func ) function (see [3]). This function will be removed from MediaWiki:Common.js soon. Please modify your scripts to use addOnloadHook( func ) instead. —Ruud 18:24, 26 November 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for notification. --Zserghei 19:46, 26 November 2006 (UTC)

Mikhail Grigoryevich Chernyayev[edit]

So if Mikhail Grigoryevich Chernyayev wasn't born in Bendery, where was he born? - Mauco 00:17, 16 February 2007 (UTC)

He was born in Tubyshki (currently in Belarus). --Zserghei 06:57, 16 February 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:CH1 Russia.gif)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:CH1 Russia.gif. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media 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 media 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 'image' 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 "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 20:08, 30 December 2007 (UTC)

Disputed fair use rationale for Image:Medea Callas.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Medea Callas.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale you have provided for using this image under "fair use" may be invalid. Please read the instructions at Wikipedia:Non-free content carefully, then go to the image description page and clarify why you think the image qualifies for fair use. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it will be deleted within a couple of days according to our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot (talk) 20:01, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

Painting infoboxes[edit]

Per WP:VAMOS, please don't add infoboxes to paintings articles without asking on talk first, as some editors don't like them. You wil see some have been removed already. Thwe same goes for artists. Thanks! 20:54, 25 December 2011 (UTC)

I think that infoboxes fit well in most of the cases. Feel free to remove them or make them smaller if they ruin visual style of some articles. --Zserghei (talk) 21:04, 25 December 2011 (UTC)
Your alone or at least lonely, in that openion when it comes to visual arts pages. Zserghei I realise your well intentioned but what you are doing, on mass, is arrogant and a wee bit presumptious. Stop that. Ceoil (talk) 14:35, 26 December 2011 (UTC)
I don't understand why you don't like the template that collects all important information about an artwork in one place. Can you explain that? Have you considered changing the template so that it meets needs of all authors? How do you like Spanish or Catalan versions of this template that are more compact? --Zserghei (talk) 14:52, 26 December 2011 (UTC)
Please stop littering the Russian Wikipedia articles with this clutter, as well. --Ghirla-трёп- 13:52, 27 December 2011 (UTC)
What happens in Spain or Andorra has nothing to do with the price of fruit. A better rubbish mouse trap is still a rubish mouse trap. And no, I've consdered nothing because Im an idiot and have spend all these years wandering around foolishly waiting for someone like you to point me towards the light. Mass change away, tool.
