Westernmost point of BulgariaEdit

I was looking into List of extreme points of Bulgaria and comparing with Google Earth. It looks like the Westernmost point as per Google Earth is in the Vidin province (,22.3573764,18z) as opposed to the place mentioned in the article in the Kyustendil province (,22.3606463,17z). Can somebody confirm which is right? Thanks! -- Paddu (talk) 16:04, 7 September 2019 (UTC)

Reorganize Wikipedia:WikiProject Ottoman Empire as a task force of Wikipedia:WikiProject Former countries?Edit

Dear users of this WikiProject:

At Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Former_countries#Make_WikiProject_Ottoman_Empire_a_task_force_of_Wikipedia:WikiProject_Former_countries? I have left a proposal to convert Wikipedia:WikiProject Ottoman Empire into a task force of Wikipedia:WikiProject Former countries. I asked this project (as all or parts of this country was/were formerly in the Ottoman Empire) and several other projects to get further feedback. Please let me know if you have questions, comments, or objections.

Thanks! WhisperToMe (talk) 01:58, 18 June 2020 (UTC)

PFC Ludogorets RazgradEdit

Two users have been fighting over this. Insults, notice board posts, everything but talking it out-- irreconcilable differences. Could someone sort this out with reliable sources and calm discussion? --Deepfriedokra (talk) 22:55, 8 July 2020 (UTC)

  • I cite the following sources and explain that there is a difference between incorporation date on September 18, 2010 and the date "The club was founded in 1945".[1] Additionally, there had been some discussion about the year 2000/2001. [2] Translating the only available source about that: "Razgrad 2000 was founded in 2000. Before the start of 2010/11 football season, the club inheritted the history, symbols, name and traditional records of the city's club Ludogorets 1945." I can further explain this source, which was written by a fellow citizen /football fan who owns this website/, because I live in Razgrad and I am able to provide more detailed information. Ludogorets was established in 1945 after the merging of several rural football clubs from the Ludogorie Region. Ludogorets Razgrad was initially participating in the Third football division of Bulgaria. They promoted to the Second division in 1961. In 1997 the club merged with FC Antibiotic Razgrad and was renamed to FC Antibiotic-Ludogorets but then the club defuncted due to financial problems. It is important to note that the club was not registered as a private company. Meanwhile the citizens of our small town, lead by Alexandar Alexandrov who later became the director of the club, created a youth club named Razgrad 2000. In 2009/2010 the club was purchased by a Bulgarian pharmeceutical entrepreneur - Kiril Domuschiev who incorporated the club by merging all previous Ludogorets' and Razgrad 2000' properties, stadium, team management, players, coaches, symbols and making it a private company. This club is the original successor of the traditions and history of Ludogorets 1945 and right now a Professional Football Club. I know it is hard to understand this for people who haven't lived in a communist country. The real thing is that before 1987 Bulgaria's government owned everything. There weren't any private companies. This means that even if the club was later privately, it was actually established long time ago. It is a common situation here and the same happened with other football clubs. Most recently with CSKA Sofia, which merged with Litex in 2016 but kept the history of the club in 1948.

Other sources: [3][4][5][6][7] All sources you could find state that the club was founded in 1945. Even yesterday, they had their 75th Anniversary celebration in front of all the Bulgarian football community. Seimbru (talk) 09:12, 9 July 2020 (UTC)

Was really hoping for some participation from Wikiproject members. Assessment of sources. Additional sources not available to English speakers. --Deepfriedokra (talk) 12:49, 9 July 2020 (UTC)
@Deepfriedokra:Full history of the football in Razgrad, Bulgaria Here you are, what I could find. When available, I will go to the Municipality Hall Razgrad and the Ludogorets' "Eagle's Nest" to take some archive photos. Seimbru (talk) 13:58, 9 July 2020 (UTC)
