Oh hey. You might be interested in Wikipedia:WikiProject Estonia. — Jeraphine Gryphon (talk) 15:37, 19 July 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for the link. I'll join in there, though admittedly I'm more active in the Estica topics on Estonian wiki. Dorpater (talk) 17:20, 20 July 2015 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for September 20Edit

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Gusta Fučíková, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Normalization. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

  Please do not add defamatory content to Wikipedia, as you did to Julius Malema, especially if it involves living persons. Such a claim must be explicitly sourced from a reliable source Roger (Dodger67) (talk) 19:58, 25 September 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open!Edit

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Your commentEdit

What you suggested on another user talk page would be like asking a heavy drinker to go to zapoy. I would rather be sober or drink just a little (commenting on something does not require a lot of time, unlike real work). My very best wishes (talk) 21:35, 2 December 2015 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Yelena SemyonovaEdit

 

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Yelena Semyonova requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not credibly indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator. KDS4444Talk 14:20, 6 February 2016 (UTC)

BLP pagesEdit

It appears that you have created at least 10 BLP pages [1] that are not at all sourced, and the notability of subjects is highly questionable. Simply providing a link to the place of work (or to a publication by the subject) does not count as an RS to establish notability. Could you please source these pages better? Otherwise, they may be nominated for deletion, or the case may be reported to WP:COINB. Thanks, My very best wishes (talk) 21:55, 12 February 2016 (UTC)

It seems to me on the other hand that you are simply stalking my edits in order to harass me. I've never seen you interested in Oriental studies otherwise. To tell you the truth, my current 'project' is starting articles on all major former USSR orientalists who are mentioned here: [2]. The respective sources could be
   Милибанд С. Д. Востоковеды России. XX-начало XXI века: биобиблиографический словарь. В 2 кн. / Отв. ред. В. М. Алпатов. М.: Восточная литература, 2008. ISBN 978-5-02-036364-9
       Кн. I. А-М. 4, VIII, 968 с. ISBN 978-5-02-036365-6
       Кн. II. Н-Я. Востоковеды ближнего зарубежья. 1005 с. ISBN 978-5-02-036368-7
       Дополнения и указатель. 2009. 71 с. ISBN 978-5-02-036395-3

I'm more interested in the Baltic authors, but will take care of the rest as well who have 'blue links' in Russian wiki (will you continue attacking me as well when I go editing Uku Masing or Uldis Bērziņš?).

Generally speaking, I would advise you not to use such 'revenge measures' in the future. Your contributions to the Putin topic are also not constructive at all. Понятно? Dorpater (talk) 22:04, 12 February 2016 (UTC)

We talked with you about other subjects before. I saw a message just above that one and decided to check. You should realize that any pages which do not satisfy our notability guidelines can and will be nominated for deletion. This has nothing to do with "revenge", just like the message by another user above. The problems with sourcing almost all pages you created are very much obvious. I do not nominate these pages for deletion at this point, but suggest that you should improve sourcing. Please consider this a friendly advice. Perhaps I am wrong, and these people are notable? Please prove it. If someone makes a number of biographies on non-notable individuals some of whom are living people, this may raise a suspicion of WP:COI. For example, you might work in the same area and know these people. If these people are notable and the pages are legitimate, that's fine. Please create as many as you wish. However, if they are not, this is spamming and using WP for promotion. My very best wishes (talk) 23:59, 12 February 2016 (UTC)
The claim that starting an article on David Ochildiyev [3] falls under spamming is absurd. Dorpater (talk) 17:08, 13 February 2016 (UTC)
Yes, he authored several books. So what? As it stands right now this page has exactly zero references about the person. If it were nominated for WP:AfD, it would be probably deleted. That's why I advised you to provide some refs to justify notability of the subject. Based on my experience, such pages will be nominated for deletion, sooner or later. My very best wishes (talk) 02:59, 14 February 2016 (UTC)

Your translationsEdit

Some of your texts have been translated from other Wikipedia articles, but not described as translations. I'm not an expert but you probably should inform when you translate.Xx236 (talk) 09:46, 18 February 2016 (UTC)

Hello! I've started the small article on Ieva Ilves based on Estonian Wiki and the articles on russian orientalists have been based on respective RuWiki articles. How should I mark those pages?--Dorpater (talk) 19:32, 18 February 2016 (UTC)

WP:NPAEdit

Look, this your comment is completely inappropriate. You tell: I would not be able to expand the article from Ru wiki with you guys, because not every sentence there has a footnote and you will immediately use it as a justification to disrupt me.. What are you talking about? I did not make a single edit on this page and can wait until the end of the AfD without making any edits. So, please go ahead and improve the page, as many people do during AfDs. My very best wishes (talk) 21:49, 22 February 2016 (UTC)

Formal mediation has been requestedEdit

The Mediation Committee has received a request for formal mediation of the dispute relating to "Vladimir Putin". As an editor concerned in this dispute, you are invited to participate in the mediation. Mediation is a voluntary process which resolves a dispute over article content by facilitation, consensus-building, and compromise among the involved editors. After reviewing the request page, the formal mediation policy, and the guide to formal mediation, please indicate in the "party agreement" section whether you agree to participate. Because requests must be responded to by the Mediation Committee within seven days, please respond to the request by 12 March 2016.

Discussion relating to the mediation request is welcome at the case talk page. Thank you.

Request for mediation rejectedEdit

The request for formal mediation concerning Vladimir Putin, to which you were listed as a party, has been declined. To read an explanation by the Mediation Committee for the rejection of this request, see the mediation request page, which will be deleted by an administrator after a reasonable time. Please direct questions relating to this request to the Chairman of the Committee, or to the mailing list. For more information on forms of dispute resolution, other than formal mediation, that are available, see Wikipedia:Dispute resolution.

WP:BATTLEGROUNDEdit

If you wish to open an ANI into what you characterise as attacks against you, by all means, do so. When you do so, note that it was in response to this piece of WP:COATRACK as described aptly in in my ES. Perhaps you'd like to explain to administrators and the community that you are not editing to make a WP:POINT. WP:GEVAL is not the way forward to building an article. Oh, and incidentally, WP:DTTR. I don't think that the irony would be lost on anyone if you're wanting to present a case for my being uncivil. --Iryna Harpy (talk) 22:11, 22 March 2016 (UTC)

The page to report folks like you is not necessarily ANI, but rather WP:AE. If you continue like that, you can well end up there. --Dorpater (talk) 18:57, 23 March 2016 (UTC)
That would make for an interesting venue considering this and your lack of participation on the article's talk page until after you'd made bold changes despite the issue being well and truly under discussion there. That's well past the use-by date on WP:BRD, and there was obviously no consensus for changes. Quite simply put, it's WP:BATTLEGROUND behaviour on your behalf. --Iryna Harpy (talk) 21:37, 23 March 2016 (UTC)

A quick 'heads up'Edit

Hi, Dorpater. I noticed that you've added an email address to your user page. While that's fine, and your prerogative, but it isn't the bots that you should be worried about (which is, I assume, why you've broken it up as you have). If you're open to being emailed, you can point to your email through Wikipedia. It allows you to filter out unwanted missives from anyone who happens to look at your user page. If you're satisfied that the person contacting you is doing so for valid reasons, you'll then have their email address and, if you respond, they'll have yours. Cheers! --Iryna Harpy (talk) 21:03, 25 March 2016 (UTC)

Hey, thanks for the heads-up! I added my e-mail address to the userpage, only to find out a moment later that there is a specific internal e-mail function there. I've recently got loads of "romance scam" and "penis enlargement" stuff in my mail account so I carefully break it up these days. --Dorpater (talk) 21:21, 25 March 2016 (UTC)
Yep. It's not just bots grabbing email addresses. It also leaves you vulnerable to any crackpot with a grudge against humanity, or on a mission from God to save souls. Blech. --Iryna Harpy (talk) 21:29, 25 March 2016 (UTC)

Articles of interest to you are covered by sanctions under Wikipedia:Requests for arbitration/Eastern EuropeEdit

This message contains important information about an administrative situation on Wikipedia. It does not imply any misconduct regarding your own contributions to date.

Please carefully read this information:

The Arbitration Committee has authorised discretionary sanctions to be used for pages regarding Eastern Europe, a topic which you have edited. The Committee's decision is here.

Discretionary sanctions is a system of conduct regulation designed to minimize disruption to controversial topics. This means uninvolved administrators can impose sanctions for edits relating to the topic that do not adhere to the purpose of Wikipedia, our standards of behavior, or relevant policies. Administrators may impose sanctions such as editing restrictions, bans, or blocks. This message is to notify you sanctions are authorised for the topic you are editing. Before continuing to edit this topic, please familiarise yourself with the discretionary sanctions system. Don't hesitate to contact me or another editor if you have any questions.

I know that you know about WP:AE, but the rule about notification should be respected. My very best wishes (talk) 17:49, 26 March 2016 (UTC)

The article David Ochildiyev has been proposed for deletion because it appears to have no references. Under Wikipedia policy, this biography of a living person will be deleted after seven days unless it has at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article. {{subst:#if: | The nominator also raised the following concern:

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp/dated}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within seven days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one.
