Ugly article[edit]

This article contains some valuable material but it is very poorly written. In addition, it misses the entire period of Middle Ages: kingdoms of Khachen, Gardman and Ktish-Baghk are nowhere. The anti-Ottoman self-defense of the 1720s is not mentioned at all. It jumps from Aghvank to melikates. Ugly. Verjakette 04:05, 2 November 2007 (UTC)

This article needs a complete rewrite. It is written in very poor English and contains tons of POV claims and unreliable sources. Grandmaster 05:50, 2 November 2007 (UTC)

Hasan-Jalal[edit]

"Gasan-Djalal" likes been taken up from Russian. The full name of the Lord of Khachen was: (Old Armenian) Հասան-Ջալալ Դաւլա, transliteration: Hasan-Jalal Dola. See more about this name on the website of the family Hasan-Jalalyan (foundation). At one of the inscriptions of Gandzasar Hasan-Jalal is called: (Old Armenian) բնակաւոր ինքնակալ բարձր ու մեծ արցախական աշխարհի, թագաւոր յոգնասահման նահանգի, Native autocrat of the high and great land of Artsakh, King of vest county. --Vacio (talk) 17:12, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

Anon, stop deleting Azerbaijan related images. The image is more than 100 years old and is PD. Grandmaster (talk) 05:17, 22 March 2008 (UTC)

I restored the picture deleted by the banned user. Grandmaster (talk) 06:24, 20 April 2008 (UTC)

Erich Feigl[edit]

I removed the strong, out of context pov added by Brandmeister utilizing Erich Feigl as a source. Feigl is a known Armenian Genocide denier and has been described as an anti-Armenian by the Simon Wiesenthal Center. I don't think referencing his work in this article is appropriate. Of course, I would like to see Brandmeister's reasoning for the inclusion of Feigl as a source.-- Ευπάτωρ Talk!! 14:30, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

Copyedit[edit]

I am currently copyediting this article. I did the best I could with the section named "Legend about Aran", but that section needs to be edited, expanded, reworked, reworded, etc by someone who is knowledgable about the subject. I can not copyedit the last portion of that section without taking an uneducated guess at the intended meaning. Aaron north (T/C) 04:33, 2 November 2010 (UTC)

N I'm sorry to say that I have abandoned this copyedit. This article almost reads like it was automatically translated by machine from some foreign text, a lot of the paragraphs either make no sense or lack the proper context to even begin to figure out the intended meaning so that I could possibly reword into proper English. If an article is written by a non-native speaker in broken english, I can usually figure out what they are trying to say, but this isn't even written that well. This article needs the attention of an expert. In the meantime, I am downgrading the quality, there is no way this article could possibly qualify as B-level in its present condition.

English assistance needed[edit]

This article appears to be mostly written by non-English speakers. There are many problems with grammar and punctuation. A thorough review and revision would be helpful.Ryoung122 22:37, 27 January 2012 (UTC)
