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

Here are some tasks awaiting attention:
  • Expand: sections needed on governance, industry/economy, education, population
  • Photo: more, please
  • Verify: add more inline citations
  • Wikify: separate "Overview" section is unnecessary - should be merged with lead para
  • Other: needs location map and town plan

Comments[edit]

I've added information about Kurdish minority in Malatya: "Malatya is one of the cities in Turkey which have a big Kurdish minority. Kurdistan (areas inhabited by mainly Kurds) maps consists Malatya as north-west corner of Kurdistan." 20.02.2008

Removal of sourced info[edit]

Ummm, what is this? Why is neutrally sourced material about the Armenian population from the past being blatantly removed? Revert yourself and please be fair. - Fedayee 06:16, 21 April 2007 (UTC)

Okay, I re-wrote it so it does not have a copyvio and POV problems. - Fedayee 06:21, 21 April 2007 (UTC)

Claims of Kurdishness[edit]

Claims of Kurdishness for Ozal and Inonu are cntradicted by their entries in wikipedia. Therefore, to maintain consistency, I am removing it.68.19.85.51 21:12, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

Natives[edit]

How is Atom Egoyan a native of Malatya? His family may have roots in Arapgir, but he was born in Cairo, as were his parents, I believe. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 46.196.107.129 (talk) 09:57, 3 August 2011 (UTC)

Melitene was the name of the region![edit]

This article says: Following Roman expansion into the east, the city was renamed in Latin as Melitene. / Melitene was the name of the region, NOT the name of this city! Böri (talk) 10:52, 5 April 2012 (UTC)

Please do not allow Kurdish irredentsits to edit pages[edit]

The Kurdish name for Malatya (a contrived corruption of its Turkish name) was added even though the city has been Demographically, Ethnically, Culturally, Economically, Socially and politically Turkish for the last Millennium. There are some desperate Kurdish users keen on claiming regions with no Kurdish populations and their works should be removed immediately. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ozan192 (talkcontribs) 00:44, 28 March 2013 (UTC)

I've restored both the Kurdish and the Armenian. The Kurdish name might be a corruption of the Turkish but the Turkish name is also a corruption of the Greek. I do not see anything wrong with listing Kurdish and Armenian names of cities in Turkey. Wikipedia isn't obliged to adhere to Turkish nationalist discourse. Jackal 01:32, 28 March 2013 (UTC)
