Things you can do Привет and Welcome! The following is a list of things you can do:

Category:Hero Cities of the Soviet Union has been nominated for discussion[edit]

Category:Hero Cities of the Soviet Union, which is within the scope of this WikiProject, has been nominated for deletion. A discussion is taking place to see if it abides with the categorization guidelines. If you would like to participate in the discussion, you are invited to add your comments at the category's entry on the categories for discussion page.—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); May 6, 2016; 12:47 (UTC)

Positions on Jerusalem[edit]

I added the WikiProject's template to the talk page of Positions on Jerusalem but it was removed. I think that it's on the scope of the project because it has a section on the position of Russia. Do you think that it should be re-added?

IB Russian inhabited locality replacement[edit]

I created a new version of {{Infobox Russian inhabited locality}} based on Infobox settlement (test cases found here); feedback and comments on the template's talk page would be most welcome.--eh bien mon prince (talk) 07:29, 5 October 2018 (UTC)

Thank you, but we already have {{Infobox Russian rural locality}} and {{Infobox Russian town}} and {{Infobox Russian urban-type settlement}} which cover all possible varieties.--Ymblanter (talk) 07:30, 5 October 2018 (UTC)

Help with Russian language sources[edit]

Hi could a Russian language speaker help analyse the sources on Taz language. It is spoken by less than 300 people and I can't tell if it was really a language or not at one point and if the sources point to notability or not. --Dom from Paris (talk) 17:07, 12 October 2018 (UTC)

Ethnic.ru refers back to the Russian Wikipedia and therefore is not a reliable source.--Ymblanter (talk) 07:42, 14 October 2018 (UTC)

Russian museums on the List of music museums[edit]

Hi there, I have introduced the List of music museums and quite some Russian articles do have an article in Russian but not in English. Are there users at this project that like to write some or all of these articles? When you make use of references, I will translate these articles to Dutch language too. :-) Ymnes (talk) 13:52, 13 October 2018 (UTC)

Souces in Russian Language waiting to be verified and reviewed in the Draft:House Kuadzhe[edit]

Greetings, I have been editing and improving my article for two months now. I have been told that the style of the article is okay by the online English help but they could not verify my sources since they are not in English. Can you help me? Yahya Kuadzhe (talk) 20:29, 18 October 2018 (UTC)

RfC on election/referendum naming format[edit]

An RfC on moving the year from the end to the start of article titles (e.g. South African general election, 2019 to 2019 South African general election) has been reopened for further comment, including on whether a bot could be used move the articles if it closed in favour of the change: Wikipedia talk:Naming conventions (government and legislation)#Proposed change to election/referendum naming format. Cheers, Number 57 15:39, 20 October 2018 (UTC)

Featured quality source review RFC[edit]

Editors in this WikiProject may be interested in the featured quality source review RFC that has been ongoing. It would change the featured article candidate process (FAC) so that source reviews would need to occur prior to any other reviews for FAC. Your comments are appreciated. --IznoRepeat (talk) 21:47, 11 November 2018 (UTC)

Discussion about the title of the article Kaliningrad question[edit]

There is a discussion about whether/what to retitle the article currently tiled Kaliningrad question. Please chime in on the article's talk page.

Great power article: Map[edit]

Following quite nasty edit-war, I started discussion on the Great Power article talk page about map in the article. Main topics for discussion: What countries should be on the map? Should the map show some sort of hierarchy of great powers (eg. using colours)? Would not be better to remove the map altogether? So far, only IPs and new accounts entered this discussion, so input from experienced editors would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Pavlor (talk) 08:26, 25 November 2018 (UTC)

Autocrat of All the Russias?[edit]

An editor, Happyturkeyday (talk), is changing the succession parameters entries in articles of Russian emperors to include "Autocrat of All the Russias". Should the parameter text be left as it was before or should this change stay? --Thinker78 (talk) 06:50, 26 November 2018 (UTC)

There was indeed smth like this in the title (I am not sure this is a precise translation, but not too far from the correct one), but all monarchs have a bunch of titles, which we typically do not add to the infobox.--Ymblanter (talk) 06:55, 26 November 2018 (UTC)
