If you are a Wikipedian needing assistance or have questions on a variety of matters - be it copyright, sourcing, or even just want to get a second opinion on your article draft, please do not hesitate to ask on my meta talkpage email me using the "email this user" function. I am happy to help in any way that I can.
If you have a gmail and are interested in helping find public domain photos of Soviet pilots, politicians, artists, and/or academics for Wikimedia Commons, either email me or post your preffered email account for Wikipedia on my talkpage, and I will add you to my googledoc table that contains a list of famous people we need copies of photos of and calculates the expiration dates for various pictures from known publications.
If you are interested in finding obituaries, graves, or genealogy, please help find the year of death for any of the photographers in this list whose year of death is unknown. Without knowing the year of death for a photographer or artist on the list, we CANNOT calculate the copyright expiration date for their work!
Please help find originals of these photos for use in Commons (or as fair-use)

My allegedly problematic behaviorEdit
- Saying that a userbox that glorifies the SS is Nazi glorification and offensive
- Nominating Russian copyrvios for deletion 
- Nominating Ukrainian copyvios for deletion
- Supposedly making MOSCOW look bad by publishing an article about the Mubarek zone an Uzbek project (I was not aware that some people consider Sharof Rashidov an honorary Russian)
- "Insulting" other editors by use of the phrase "chauvanistic behaviors" in the context of coverage of an unpopular ethnic minority to explain why I started an RfC about the problem.
- "Threatening" ruwiki by saying in the above-linked RfC that if hypothetically someone on ruwiki nominated the article about Uyghurs for deletion and claimed that Uyghurs aren't a real people I would start an RfC about said unacceptable hypothetical behavior (for context, an editor on ruwiki nominated the article about Yaliboylu people for deletion claiming that Yaliboylu people weren't real/existance was a marginal theory contrary to the many sources provided in the article)
- "Evading" blocks in the form of off-wiki social media activity such as answering questions of new users, sharing interesting newspaper clippings, posting newly-discovered public domain photos. (Since when does Wikipedia have the right to regulate off-wiki social media activity? No matter what, I WILL post as many newspaper clips as I want. If other Wikipedians find my posts interesting, so be it!)
