Latvian translation question at the Reference DeskEdit
Hello, wondering if anyone would be interested in helping at Wikipedia:Reference_desk/Language#Russian_and_Latvian_question where a user has asked for help translating a poem from Latvian to English. Many thanks,184.108.40.206 (talk) 16:30, 6 July 2020 (UTC)

2021 IIHF World ChampionshipEdit
I have been attempting to add content to articles related to the 2021 IIHF World Championship in ice hockey, scheduled to partly take place in Minsk this year. As you may be aware of this is a highly controversial issue and touches upon the legitimacy of Lukashenka. So far I have met rather staunch resistance and accusations of not being neutral in my approach.
What I would like to achieve for:
- IIHF: there be a brief summary of the controversy surrounding the Championships with reference to the earlier 2014 championships under Controversy. This is an accepted way of describing controversies, which this is.
- 2021 IIHF World Championship: a detailed discussion of the various actors at play, these include politicians, international organisations and large companies (event sponsors)
- Rene Fasel: president of IIHF who is doing things in a very bumbling sort of way and seems to want to have his cake and eat it too (here is an interview where he goes into detail)
I would recommed you review the talk pages of those articles to see the slow progress being made. In particular I think that the 2021 IIHF World Championship has gained political significance which in a sense makes it not only a sports event, but a political prize. If it is held in Minsk then Lukashenka scores a point. If not his opponents do. Why else all the fuss? Jabbi (talk) 12:04, 17 January 2021 (UTC)
Rename articles about uezds for consistencyEdit
I’m proposing renaming every article in the form of, for example, Akhtyrka Uyezd → Akhtyrka Uezd, to match the spelling of the renamed main article Uezd. Please discuss at talk:Uezd#Rename articles about uezds for consistency. —Michael Z. 22:16, 6 December 2021 (UTC)
