And you are going to find NPOV here, on Project Serbia? Why not alert all Balkan communities? Why not alert projects on medieval history and history? Your snooping into my contributions, and then alerting only one, deeply involved community, which has already shown tendencies to tag teaming, is nothing short of an attempt to pit that whole community against one editor - it could just as well be seen as outright canvasing.--౪ Santa ౪99° 16:54, 16 January 2021 (UTC)
@Le Deluge: You can conclude from the largely aggressive and inapproppriate comment which you got, one out of several posted recently and the general lack of good faith followed with throwing aspirations at the whole community of editors. No amount of detailed analysis would better explain it than the comment posted above just did. Sadkσ(talk is cheap) 17:49, 16 January 2021 (UTC)
@Le Deluge: Santasa isn't making bold edits, he's removing paragraphs that have no sources. Wikipedia is not free advocacy hosting space for original research. Editors who want to challenge what he's removing have to do so with bibliography. A discussion about WP:STABLE begins when there are conflicting accounts in bibliography.--Maleschreiber (talk) 19:33, 16 January 2021 (UTC)
Not only are those edits bold, not only that edit-warring accompanies them, they are also largely POV pushing based on "common history", which is funny, because, if it is in fact "common history" than it should have a place on the page and not the other way around.

He's removing paragraphs that have no sources. It's not "bold" - it's the norm in any editing environment which relies on use of bibliography. --Maleschreiber (talk) 19:44, 16 January 2021 (UTC)
I recently disambiguated Sveti Ilija, but the toponymy around Vranje is giving me a bit of pause - apparently there's an unincorporated hamlet (?) of Sveti Ilija located in the hills to the east of the town that should be part of Barelić but may have a post office per Postal codes in Serbia (likewise Google Maps data, which may or may not be reliable), but there's also an eponymous mountain of Sveti Ilija (Serbia) to the west of the town? Can someone find some references to confirm this? --Joy [shallot] (talk) 15:49, 31 January 2021 (UTC)
@Joy: Yes, Sveti Ilija is a hamlet of Barelić . Actually, it's kind of its central point, with a school, post office and doctor's office. Here's a local TV reportage from it: . No such user (talk) 19:57, 31 January 2021 (UTC)
OK, so Barelić is a mesna zajednica while Sveti Ilija is a selo, but what has the standard been so far, is each such small selo considered a gazeteer entry worthy of an article, or a redirect? How would we name it, would it be "Sveti Ilija, Barelić" or "Sveti Ilija, Vranje"? --Joy [shallot] (talk) 21:16, 31 January 2021 (UTC)
List of settlements in Serbia follows the census nomenclature about what constitutes a "naseljeno mesto". Having also worked on OpenStreetMap, I'm rather familiar with the situation. For the most part, a "naseljeno mesto" follows the common-sense logic of being an identifiable village with a least semblance of a centre, and a "mesna zajednica" typically coincides with it. However, remote mountainous areas such as this one are usually consist of scattered hamlets, some named and some not, and the whole area then has a name and constitutes a "naseljeno mesto". Quite often, one MZ encompasses several such NM. So it becomes messy... This one is messy in particular, since it is located on the boundary of Barelić and Viševce. I've rarely seen a settlement boundary outside city suburbs crossing a residential area like that. I suppose it's a relatively recent development, built along the regional road rather than scattered over hills. Whatever the case, it makes it even more sensible to name it "Sveti Ilija, Vranje".

I happened upon this article which is just in terrible shape. I'm not a content creator but my superficial judgment is that it needs to be reduced by 75-80% to the most important revolutionaries rather than trying to be comprehensive and list everyone playing a part in revolutionary activities which makes it one long page of red links. But I'm not familiar with the history of Serbia and so I'm hoping someone more knowledgeable about the Balkans can drastically trim this article down to a useful size for our readers.
It also looks like the page is the work of a solitary editor in Windsor, Ontario who might be the same editor as the page creator who was blocked for sockpuppetry. LizRead!Talk! 01:42, 10 March 2021 (UTC)
Dozens of drafts in need of rescuing
Please see . the contributions of an anon. user. As a frequent reviewer of Articles for creation, they have been frustrating me. Probably at least half of them would be considered notable. in the enWP, if they were properly sourced. Some have no sources at all, some bare links to an ip address without author and title and publisher, some links to sources that enWP would not usually consider reliable.
(There have been similar contributions under other anon. addresses.)
I lack the language abilities to be able to source and fix them. As I encounter them in Drafts listed for deletion, I am postponing deletion for 6 months, but I cannot keep doing this indefinitely. It would greatly help the encyclopedia if some of the members of this wikiproject were to take them in hand. Quite a few have been already deleted--they're mostly listed on the usertalk page as deletion notices. As an admin, I'd be very glad to undelete them if anyone were to work on them. I;'d also be glad to look for additional deleted contributions.
But someone one or more editors have to do the work. Since therfe's so much else I need to be doing, and so many other drafts to work on, by May 1 of this year I shall stop postponing the deletions, unless any of you let me know on my user talk that they have some likelihood to be rescued.

Montenegrin or Serbian
I kindly ask you to help me resolve the issue about the language-template usage in this and similar articles. Should I use Montenegrin or Serbian to transcribe the names? Add your comments here. Thank you. --Governor Sheng (talk) 13:34, 23 April 2021 (UTC)
