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?

Error in Russian & English article for the Gaysky district in Orenburg Oblast[edit]

There is something wrong on these pages:

It is not clear where this area belongs to:

Temporary - Does this area belong to the raion or not.png


This picture (,_within_Orenburg_Oblast.png) and this picture ( say that the "tongue area" on the top right of the raion (including the settlement Mirny, Ми́рный) belong to the raion; but the linked GPS coordinates at the top of the page ( say that the "tongue area" (including the settlement Mirny, Ми́рный) does NOT belong to the Gaysky raion. To which raion does the Mirny settlement in the Orenburg region belong? C-Kobold (talk) 15:46, 15 August 2018 (UTC)

I am not exactly sure what is going on, but there is no city of Mirny in Orenburg Oblast. There are two rural localities with this name, one belongs to Alexandrovsky District, another one to the city of Orsk.--Ymblanter (talk) 16:07, 15 August 2018 (UTC)
@C-Kobold:, Indeed, Yandex Maps state that the settlement of Mirny you mention belongs to the city of Orsk.--Ymblanter (talk) 16:12, 15 August 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for the quick answer, research and explanation! When I have some time (tomorrow maybe), I will correct the two pictures. C-Kobold (talk) 18:25, 15 August 2018 (UTC)
Thanks. This map can help to understand the borders.--Ymblanter (talk) 18:37, 15 August 2018 (UTC)

Da Vinci Learning?[edit]


I work for Da Vinci Media, the company that runs Da Vinci Learning and all subsidiaries. I was wondering why this is in the Project Russia project?

Occurrence of "Tatar" in India[edit]

Persian Literature in Translation mentions Tatars accompanying Timur into Delhi. In the Badaun district of U.P. India, there is a village by the name of Tatarganj, which corresponds to "Tatargrad" or "Tatarsettlement". A distant cousin's wife from that area told me that she was "Pathan Tatar", a term that I had never heard before. She explained that they were Khiljis. The Khiljis are considered a Turkic people by historians. They preceded the emergence of the Mongols. In Afghanistan they are considered Pushtun & are called Ghilzai. The Ghilzai sub-tribes include the Suri, Ghorid dynasty (who are Suri), Lodhi, Niazi & Hotaki, among others. (Though one of the Hazara tribes in Afghanistan are called Khilji). They are linked with the Buddhist Turki Shahi that ruled Kabul & are said to have arrived from Tibet, yet are also linked with the Xiongnu and the Huns. --Jafferfj (talk) 02:24, 27 August 2018 (UTC)

Review of Irakli Tsereteli[edit]

Hello, I recently had the article Irakli Tsereteli up at FAC, and it didn't pass mainly due to lack of reviews. It was suggested before I resubmit to have someone go over it outside the FAC process, so I'm wondering if anyone here is willing to do so? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

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) 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.

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)
