There is no initial "H" in Russian. Adam 05:44, 20 Jun 2005 (UTC)

I happened to be a native russian speaker, and yes there is a initial H in russian. In fact it is fairly common. The letter is called (Ha) and in cyrilic it is written as X or "Х". The words like cold(Holod Холод), bread(Hleb Хлеб), good (Horoshy Хороший), trunk (Hobot Хобот) all start with H or russian Х. the word for hooligan is Хулиган, and russian X is always trunsripted as H. For refernce check dictionary [1] you will see that hooligan does indeed start with H(X) in russian.--Hq3473 17:43, 20 Jun 2005 (UTC)

I hesitate to argue with a native Russian speaker, but the cyrillic letter "X" is usually transcribed "Kh" as in Khrushchev (Хрущёв), and is not pronounced like "H" in English. It is pronounced either "kh" or "gh". I have listened to spoken Russian a lot and I know that Russians say, for example, "Ghitler" for Hitler and "ghomosexual" for homosexual. Adam 22:22, 20 Jun 2005 (UTC)

I didn't say Hitler and homosexual were spelled with a "X" in Russian. I know they are spelled Гитлер and Гомомосексуалист. I am talking about how they are pronounced, and therefore how they should be transcribed in English. I heard the Russian Ambassador speak on Victory Day and he clearly said "Ghitler", not "Khitler" nor "Hitler." Adam 01:04, 21 Jun 2005 (UTC)

But I am happy with the change you have now made to the article. Spasibo. Adam 01:06, 21 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Math notation (identity of indiscernibles)[edit]

Hello. Please note that you can write

with the radical covering the entire numeral, rather than

which is what you put in identity of indiscernibles. Similarly, if you write

then the radical extends all the way across the sum, unlike what happens when you write:

Thanks for fixing that i was careless--Hq3473 14:07, 29 July 2005 (UTC)

lenin joke[edit]

I see you are a russin speaker. I also guess that you are young. This joke was originally about a hare, because it is a hare who is a hero of kindergarten songs. And a hare is "nice" (zainka-serenkij, etc.) and "smart" (not wise; he cheats wolf ahd fox all the time). I was going to fing a good version with hare and reinstate. But it will be OK for now.

I guess, the hedgehog version probably appeared later, already in post-Soviet times, when a hedgehog series of Russian jokes started. (I mean the jokes where hedgehog' s function was primarily being a funny word. Of course, there were quite a few jokes with hedgehog before, based on his main trait: lots of needles) mikka (t) 22:39, 7 December 2005 (UTC)


I reverted your change of Cyrillic spelling because it was wrong. Serbian and Macedonian use their own versions of Cyrillic which do not have iotized vowels and J is used instead. Zocky | picture popups 18:40, 27 January 2006 (UTC)

Veggie Pride is not spam[edit]

(Re the Ethics of eating meat page.)

You may not like the Veggie Pride, but it happens to be the only regular demonstration in the world expressing an ethical opposition to meat eating. It is also a Manifesto, a text stating clearly that opposition. The link to the Veggie Pride is perfectly relevant to the subject of the page and you have no justification in deleting it and calling it spam. (And additionally, spam is a form of meat, which the Veggie Pride is precisely not.)

In my humble opinion, The page is not about events organizations, etc, it is about ETHICS of eating meat. However notable the event might be it in my opinion does not provide the reader with any mores useful information on "Ethics of eating meat". While the reader may find that yes there exists some organization that strongly opposes eating meat this does not help him gain more understanding of the subject matter beyond what article already provides. All the points made in manifesto are already made in "Cause least harm" and "Animals have feelings and can suffer" subsections. And just to clarify i personally have nothing against Veggie Pride, i think it might be a usefull link on a page like Vegetarianism, just not on Ethics of eating meat page. --Hq3473 15:30, 22 April 2006 (UTC)

CCBN Survey[edit]

Thanks for copyeditting the Naturism page. I understand your point- the problems are these

  • Should I report the actual question asked in the poll- or clarify the question, then be guilt of inserting a POV, or not reflecting the reference.
  • Such was the political dynamite of the question, it was phrased in such a way to illustrate the strength of the two factions. A similiar situation happened in the US- and they ended up with two organisations AANR and one other, and two or more factions that are strong and critical of both. The problem for the CCBN, was that it was made up as association of a couple of dozen landed members only clubs, with all the voting rights and status on the INF. It had the right to issue the IFN identity card- which thousands needed so paid CCBN a membership fee, which was then used for the enhancement of the members only clubs--- .Most holders of the card got no services and wouldn't be seen dead in a members only club.

If you have a solution- like a change of wording of the question, or may be something in brackets- that doesn't start World War 3- I see it will be useful. ClemRutter (talk) 09:06, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

The solution is simple, what what the exact question in the ORIGINAL poll quoted in the article?--Hq3473 (talk) 15:10, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

sour cream[edit]

What do you think about this one instead?

Bowl of chili with sour cream and cheese

Its fine, sour cream is clearly visible. --Hq3473 (talk) 20:31, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

Ok. Warrington (talk) 21:20, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

Murtaugh (How I Met Your Mother)[edit]

Please read the talk page for Murtaugh (How I Met Your Mother). The Leeroy Jenkins trivia needs not just a source but a really strong source to show it is notable, and not just coincidental. Episode commentary from the DVD or notes from the writers would prove it was intentional and be good enough. Notes from a review that noticed it might be enough to show notability. IMBD is a weak source and not really any better than just pointing at another Wikipedia article since any user can edit certain parts of IMDB. Please also note the long revert history, an editor has been trying to force this point with no source and no effort to discuss it on the talk page. Discussion would help a lot, editors might even be willing to accept the combined weight of a few weak sources but this is not a time to be BOLD but instead to discuss and gently persuade other editors there really is some notability to this point. -- Horkana (talk) 00:20, 2 April 2010 (UTC)

Delta Gamma[edit]

Hi! I noticed that you commented on the Delta Gamma talk page a while back. I am working in a group on an assignment for a college course that requires editing and adding more information to the Delta Gamma page. We are trying to collaborate with previous editors, and I was wondering if you have any more suggestions for the page, after reading our group's Wikiproject proposal (located on the bottom of the Delta Gamma talk page)? I have also added some possible edits throughout the talk page. If you are willing to comment back to us on the Delta Gamma talk page, that would be great! Thank you!
