Gypsy versus Roma[edit]

I notice that "Gypsy" was recently changed to "Roma". While, in general, this is more correct, Zdob şi Zdub consistently use Ţigan, which is equivalent to "Gypsy", not "Roma". I won't revert unilaterally, but I disagree with this decision. -- Jmabel | Talk 20:05, Feb 21, 2005 (UTC)

Language name[edit]

I won't change the language name used simply because they're Moldovans. Obviously, it depends more on what they call it. "Hardcore Moldovenesc" seems to imply to me that it would be in "Moldovan" rather than "Romanian".

In addition, the presence of Moldovanisms such as "papusoi" (instead of the more Wallachian "porumb" or other words from various graiuri such as "cucuruca") seems a convincing argument to me. However, if they are fervently against "Moldovan" as a language or a name for a language, it should remain as it is. --Node 23:52, 26 September 2005 (UTC)

Members[edit]

I've restored two members who were deleted without comment by an anon IP. Both are mentioned on the band's own site:

  • Sviatoslav Starus - [1] (in Romanian)
  • Igor Buzurniuc - [2]

Fair use rationale for Image:Eurovision05-moldova01.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Eurovision05-moldova01.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.
