WMF projects - translation of labels and descriptionsEdit
Hi NatigKrolik! I have seen your edits at numerous pages about WMF projects and want to let you know that the number of Wikidata:Database reports/WMF projects has increased to more then 409; there are pages from Wikibook project pages to Wikiversity and Wiktionary project pages. You may be interested in adding labels and descriptions in other languages. Please follow also the discussion at property talk:P218 and comment there.

Hello NatigKrolik! For a while now I've been following your actions here at Wikidata and it really is great to see your help in fighting vandalism, which I think needs to be rewarded with rollback rights. You already have a script installed, I know, so it may not make a big difference to you, but I'm hoping that with this right, your rollbacks will "patrol" those edits at Special:RecentChanges, because, as it is now, after you undo vandalism, it can still be seen at RecentChanges, and to remove them from the list I have to manually do this – obviously, time consuming, when it needn't be. Essentially, if you're already doing the vandalism-fighting, then it shouldn't mean that I have to check it too. Anyway, after looking at your account, I do wonder why you were banned at hywiki. I don't speak Armenian, so used Google Translate, which comes up with "improper signatures". Is that a reason for an indefinite ban? Why do/did you not appeal? Seems strange, but despite this, I value your work and efforts here, so thank you! Jared Preston (talk) 00:12, 1 December 2016 (UTC)

Why remove edit on Ernst Buchner? It's not vandalism to mention that a Nazi was a Nazi is it? Especially given his important role under Hitler?Edit
Hi NatigKrolik, I don't understand why you reverted the edit on Ernst Buchner (German art historian) removing the text "and museum director, Nazi party member, Director of Bavarian State Collections". As head of the Bavarian State Collections under Hitler, Buchner, who belonged to the Nazi party (joined: May 1, 1933) for the entire duration of the Nazi regime, played a key role in Nazi looting. This is extremely well documented and essential information in understanding who he was and the significance of his postwar career. There are many unimpeachable sources for this, including a 32 page interrogation report by the US Army in 1945 which is available in the National Archives and online https://www.archives.gov/research/holocaust/art/key-series-descriptions/key-series-descriptions-01.html and http://www.dfs.ny.gov/consumer/holocaust/history_art_looting_restitution/The%20Allies/OSS%20and%20the%20ALIU/ALIU%20Reports/ernst_buchner.pdf. Petropoulos dedicates 36 pages to the case of Ernst Buchner in The Faustian Bargain in the chapter on Museum Directors' role in Nazi looting. I just want to make sure that you know that the edit was not vandalism, but a sincere effort to better describe the subject. Could you please undo the deletion? Thank you Xmastree75 (talk) 09:41, 17 July 2017 (UTC)
