Cannabis in Romania needs improvement[edit]

We have a new article Cannabis in Romania, but it could really use improvement and expansion, especially from anyone who can read Romanian sources. With a little polishing, it'd also be really useful to make a translated version for Romanian Wikipedia since it's a topic of increasing interesting these days.

In particular, can someone help verify that it was indeed 1928 when cannabis was first banned in Romania? Goonsquad LCpl Mulvaney (talk) 07:28, 6 December 2016 (UTC)

Notice to participants at this page about adminship[edit]

Many participants here create a lot of content, may have to evaluate whether or not a subject is notable, decide if content complies with BLP policy, and much more. Well, these are just some of the skills considered at Wikipedia:Requests for adminship.

So, please consider taking a look at and watchlisting this page:

You could be very helpful in evaluating potential candidates, and even finding out if you would be a suitable RfA candidate.

Many thanks and best wishes,

Peer review: Edict of Torda[edit]

All comments are highly appreciated here. Borsoka (talk) 12:04, 7 May 2017 (UTC) vs.[edit]

Observ ca articolele de aici, in special cele despre romani/Romania, sunt mai bune decat versiunile lor in limba romana. De ce romanii care contribuie aici nu o fac si la wikipedia in romana?! Observ ca wikipedia in romana este mai saraca in continut, dar si in calitate, fata de versiunea engleza. Deasemenea articolele bune din versiunea in romana sunt mai mult traduse din versiunea in engleza. De ce nu exista mai mult interes, si mai profesionit, pentru dezvoltarea wikipediei in romana? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:52, 8 May 2017 (UTC)

Recent history[edit]

I notice that History of Romania since 1989 seems to stop short in about 2010, and there is barely anything for more recent years in the main History of Romania either. Could I suggest members of this project do some updating there?: Noyster (talk), 20:22, 11 May 2017 (UTC)

Kurt W. Treptow, Larry L. Watts[edit]

Dahn, drew my attention to the fact that leading Romanian historians, such as Ioan-Aurel Pop, Ioan Bolovan, regularly published together with Larry L. Watts (who allegedly denies Holocaust) and Kurt W. Treptow (who is said to have committed serious crimes). If this is the case, I think Romanian wikipedians could assist our community to provide a list of unreliable Romanian historians. For further details I refer to the reassesment page of Stephen the Great. Thank you for your assistance in advance. Borsoka (talk) 18:46, 31 July 2017 (UTC)

Transylvanian peasant revolt[edit]

Rgvis, has been attempting to add quite strange pieces of information in the article about the Transylvanian peasant revolt.

First, he wants to state, based on a books published in 1934, that the Vlachs "were still on a footing of equality" with the Hungarians, Saxons and Székelys in the late 13th century. However, a Vlach knez was not "on a footing of equality" either with a Hungarian nobleman or with a Hungarian peasant. (Because a Hungarian nobleman was exempted of the taxes, but Vlach knezes had to pay special taxes. On the other hand, Hungarian peasants had to pay, for instance, the tithe, while Vlach knezes were mostly exempt of this tax). Neither was a Saxon burgher "on a footing of equality" with a Hungarian nobleman or with a Vlach or Székely peasant. How could we state that Vlachs were "on a footing of equality" with Hungarians, or Hungarians with Székelys, etc., if an individual's legal position was independent of his/her nationality?
Secondly, Rgvis wants to state, based on a terciary source, that the Orthodox Vlach peasants were extremly suppressed and regarded almost as slaves in the Catholic Kingdom of Hungary. However, a Catholic peasant always had to pay the 10% tithe, while an Orthodox peasant was to pay this irksome tax only after he/she settled on a land abandoned by a Catholic peasant. Moreover, a Vlach commoner paid only a 2% tax on his/her most common animals (sheep), while a Catholic peasant paid a 10% tax on his/her livestock. If a Catholic peasant was always taxed at 20%, while an Orthodox peasant was taxed at 2-12%, how could we state that Vlachs were regarded slaves?

Disambiguation links on pages tagged by this wikiproject[edit]

Wikipedia has many thousands of wikilinks which point to disambiguation pages. It would be useful to readers if these links directed them to the specific pages of interest, rather than making them search through a list. Members of WikiProject Disambiguation have been working on this and the total number is now below 20,000 for the first time. Some of these links require specialist knowledge of the topics concerned and therefore it would be great if you could help in your area of expertise.

A list of the relevant links on pages which fall within the remit of this wikiproject can be found at

Please take a few minutes to help make these more useful to our readers.— Rod talk 18:27, 3 December 2017 (UTC)
