Daniel, just out of curiousity, where'd the info and text for this come from?
I've taken out the last sentence
I've taken out the last sentence in the article because it was from this site about Azerbaijan. The last sentence does not need to be posted, because there are also trains to other places. I think it also mentions an Azeri population there, I'll see what I can do about that.
It was this sentence: There are trains to Baku and a consulate of Azerbaijan is expected to open in the near future.
- I've removed the article for copyright violation - the whole article was taken from that site, not just a sentence. I've started a new version at Derbent/Temp, incorporating material from the 1911 Britannica. Isomorphic 20:07, 17 Mar 2004 (UTC)
I emailed the people there. They said that we could copy the text but not the pictures. I have their permission. -Dagestan
OK, I've got the email:
Hi Daniel, Thank you for your message. You may use only the TEXT, not the images. Source should be mentioned as "Travel-images.com" Regards from Lisbon, Miguel Torres Curado http://travel-images.com (and Azerb.com)
(See? There's my permission!) -User:Dagestan
Alright, I guess it can go back up then. Does he understand what the GFDL means? Isomorphic 06:34, 19 Mar 2004 (UTC)
Apparently he does. -User:Dagestan
Alrighty, I've put a note acknowledging the source. I'm also going to incorporate in some text from the temp version (which is from the 1911 Britannica.) Isomorphic 19:16, 19 Mar 2004 (UTC)
There is also a town in Turkey by this name, so could someone start a disabmig. page?
and in Turkmenistan
Shirvanshahs of Persia
Shirvanshahs of Azerbaijan were never considered a persians, which can be seen from respective wiki article. Propose to remove the words "of Persia" and possibly add "of Azerbaijan". Will edit if no objections. Shiftyscales (talk) 21:55, 10 December 2008 (UTC)
- I notice now a slight Persian bias in this article, eq. Safavids are called Persian dynasty, while at respective article it's Iranian. Will edit now Shiftyscales (talk) 22:31, 11 December 2008 (UTC)
Azerbaijan itself was a part of Persia and more correctly Iran. So I think we should remove the word Azerbaijan and consider it as a province of Iran (Azari).
Yakima, Washington lists Derbent as a sister city, but this article does not list Yakima as a sister city. According to this list, Ganja and Yakima are its sisters. La Crosse lists Dubna as a sister (and vice versa). I will change it in the article. I am writing this here in case anyone questions why.--Kpstewart (talk) 02:23, 3 September 2009 (UTC)
