edit·history·watch·refresh Stock post message.svg To-do list for Abkhazia:

Here are some tasks awaiting attention:
  • Article requests : (or rather proposals) Culture (Literature, Architecture)
    • Detail the relationship with the South Ossetian war
    • Discuss ties with the Abazaz and the Circassians
    • Discuss the reputation of long living among the abkhazians (there are books on this)

Unexplained edits by Chipmunkdavis?[edit]

There are several issues with series of recent edits made by Chipmunkdavis. See comparison

  • "Georgia accuses the Abkhaz secessionists of having conducted a deliberate campaign of ethnic cleansing of between 200,000 to 240,000 Georgians" This part is inconsistent with another part of the article, subsection "Ethnic cleansing of Georgians". The subsection says that "Roughly up to 250,000 ethnic Georgians were expelled from their homes. Slightly over 200,000 Georgians remain displaced in Georgia proper." There are also sources given for verification.
  • Hamshemin Armenians is incorrect spelling. See Hemshin peoples for alternate spellings.
  • "Russians also moved into Abkhazia in great numbers". The sentence before this sentence already mentions Russians, so the word also isn't needed any more from pure Grammatical standpoint.
  • Why did you remove from See also puppet state? Abkhazia can sometimes be considered a puppet state, so it would help readers to read that article too.

Please don't try to jeopardize my edits again. --Zgagloev (talk) 08:27, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

These were part of reverts, not bold edits I made. Of the remaining, the estimate range of 200,000 to 240,000 is much better than an "up to" statement, as it gives an upper and lower bound, rather than just the higher one. There's no indication the 200,000 in this statement and in the other section are the same value. I removed "puppet state" and "self-determination" because the See Also isn't a place to push the occupation and independence arguments. CMD (talk) 14:56, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

Tuvalu takes back recognition of independence of Abkhazia[edit]

Tuvalu has taken back recognition of independence of Abkhazia. Please see tha link: http://www.interpressnews.ge/en/politicss/56198-tuvalu-takes-back-recognition-of-independence-of-abkhazia-and-so-called-south-ossetia.html http://1tv.ge/news-view/66428?lang=en Articel needs to be corrected! --D.Goletiani (talk) 09:25, 31 March 2014 (UTC)

Flag[edit]

As WP:INFOBOXFLAG uses this article as an example of where the infobox should not have a flag, I've removed it. Obviously it should not be replaced without an agreed change to our guidance. Dougweller (talk) 09:34, 11 June 2014 (UTC)

I note that the MOS has been changed, which is fine. Dougweller (talk) 11:52, 11 June 2014 (UTC)

Humorous Flag of Bigoted ignorance.[edit]

The True Abkhaz flag represents Abkhaz Kingdom (The hand) with white stripes (Snowy mountains, and Christianity), and Green stripes (Ancient Forests, and Islam) and stars representing land of Abkhazia. Abkhazia never used Cross as a means of self identification. Yes there are some Abkhaz family seals with cross in it but there is at least one accommodating a swastika.


Is this an encyclopedia or a site for colonist Kartvelian bigotry and hate speech?

Naming consistency - Ochamchire/a[edit]

Let's be consistent with naming, WP:NAME says:

In this case there's no compelling reason to use alternative name (Ochamchire) version throughout the article, it will just create confusion for the reader. There's a a lot of alternative names of localities in Abkhazia so let's stick with the ones used in the main articles about them(be they Georgian ones like Gulripshi or Abkhazian like Gagra).
