Orphaned non-free image File:SamsunsporAlt.png[edit]


Thanks for uploading File:SamsunsporAlt.png. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful.

In recognition of your first 1,000 edits to Wikipedia articles. Thank you! Steven Walling (WMF) • talk 17:27, 6 April 2012 (UTC)

...Just for context, I work at the Wikimedia Foundation, but I've been a Wikipedian since 2006. We just started looking about who completed their 1,000th edit to Wikipedia, and today we saw you made yours very recently. Thanks for contributing! Steven Walling (WMF) • talk 17:28, 6 April 2012 (UTC)

April 2012[edit]

Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. I noticed your recent edit to Mehmet Ekici does not have an edit summary. Please provide one before saving your changes to an article, as the summaries are quite helpful to people browsing an article's history. Thanks! Walter Görlitz (talk) 02:23, 11 April 2012 (UTC)


Greetings. I see that you have added "Altaic" in every language template for the Turkic languages. "Altaic" must always be followed in parentheses by the word "(controversial)". Please make this addition to all the pages where you have left that off. Thank you. --Taivo (talk) 23:25, 21 July 2012 (UTC)

I thought the question mark after the word "Altaic" made it clear that the classification is controversial. Correct me if I'm wrong. — amateur (talk) 23:30, 21 July 2012 (UTC)

Yes, the question mark has been acceptable within the cladistic table, but we've agreed to only show Altaic for the families and their eponymous languages. This parallels other language-family proposals, where we note them in their constituent families, but not in every language within those families. The exception for the eponymous languages in this case is to head off chronic additions because Turkish, Mongolian, Korean, and Japanese are so extremely well known. — kwami (talk) 22:02, 23 July 2012 (UTC)

OldTurkic Unicode[edit]

Hi there. Would you please help me to see this unicode letters? I've tried several browsers without success.. Thank you for your reply. Sbasturk (talk) 23:56, 6 January 2013 (UTC)

I guess you need a compatible font, such as one of the ones found here. amateur (talk) 02:16, 7 January 2013 (UTC)

Türkvizyon 2013[edit]

Hi there, Sorry to be a pain, but I've had to revert your change on Turkvision 2013, again. When song titles are written, we avoid adding letters such as Ə in Sənsiz. The schwa symbol needs to be converted into a "common" letter that is found on most standard Latin A-Z keyboards. This is because the majority of viewers do not have a button with the schwa "Ə" symbol, thus we need to accommodate everyone. This is why the Azeri spelling of the song title is shown in parenthesis. Wes Mᴥuse 07:07, 3 December 2013 (UTC)

The Turkish letters Ç, Ğ, İ, Ö, Ş, Ü are not found in most of the standart keyboards either, so why not convert these letters into more "common" letters too, then?
Also why was the letter used insted of Ə was U, opposed to more sensible choices like E or A? amateur (talk) 07:11, 3 December 2013 (UTC)
The other letters get used in song titles, as these some how self-convert in the Wiki-search tab. However the schwa does not. ProjectEurovision have always tried to avoid using symbols where possible. As for U and not E or A, when I made the change, I was not sure of the guttural sound that schwa made, so I opted for the one that sounded closest. If E or A are more correct, then feel free to change it to those. Wes Mᴥuse 07:16, 3 December 2013 (UTC)
Well, I did in fact change the U to E, only for you to change it back to U and tell me I was wrong. amateur (talk) 07:19, 3 December 2013 (UTC)
Actually, you changed it back to Ə not e. And from what else I gather, it is not just ProjectEurovision that has to use standardized Romanization. It is also a manual of style guidance, see MOS:FOREIGN, and MOS:Ety. Wes Mᴥuse 07:22, 3 December 2013 (UTC)
My eyes must be playing tricks on me, as I swear when I looked it shown you had reverted it back to Ə not e. Anyhow, I've self-reverted my action and gone back to how you fixed it using the e. Wes Mᴥuse 07:25, 3 December 2013 (UTC)
The manuals you refer to deal with non-Latin scripts. amateur (talk) 07:25, 3 December 2013 (UTC)
Also, if you check out Iceland in the Eurovision Song Contest#Contestants, you will see the nonstandard characters Þ and Ð are used there. amateur (talk) 07:30, 3 December 2013 (UTC)
And if you look at Turkey in the Eurovision Song Contest#Contestants, ProjectEurovision do not use the schwa, even though some of the song titles used the letter. It's just one of those thing, unfortunately. Wes Mᴥuse 07:32, 3 December 2013 (UTC)
Perhaps this has something to do with the fact that the letter schwa isn't part of the Turkish alphabet? amateur (talk) 07:34, 3 December 2013 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── I've read more into the links I provided above. MOS:Ety is in fact a "Wikipedia:Naming conventions (use English)" guidance. It states that the use of diacritics are allowed (such as á é í ó ú). However as the schwa is not a diacritic then its Anglicise/Romanised equivalent should be used, with the other language version is parenthesis. If you notice on the Turkvision article, even the Russian entries use the Anglicised version first, and the foreign version in parenthesis. And this has been done on every article related to Project Eurovision in its 10-year history. Wes Mᴥuse 07:42, 3 December 2013 (UTC)

This still doesn't explain why thorn is allowed. amateur (talk) 07:45, 3 December 2013 (UTC)
You're right, it doesn't explain why thorn is used. But I have worked out why schwa cannot be used. If you notice at MOS:Ety is states not to use Cyrillic text. The letter schwa is Cyrillic, see Schwa (Cyrillic). Perhaps the letter thorn is allowed for unknown reasons. Although saying that, on more recent Eurovision articles the thorn has been replaced with an Anglicised letter. Maybe the earlier ones have not been converted yet? For example, Eyþór Ingi Gunnlaugsson is enlisted as Eythor Ingi on ESC 2013 article. Wes Mᴥuse 07:48, 3 December 2013 (UTC)
Just because there is a letter in the same shape in the Cyrillic script does not make schwa a Cyrillic letter. By that logic, A, B, C, E, H, I, J, K, M, O, P, S, T, X and Y are Cyrillic letters as well. amateur (talk) 07:53, 3 December 2013 (UTC)
As I understand, names of people who are known enough in the English-speaking world with an Anglicized name are converted. But I'm not sure on that one. amateur (talk) 07:55, 3 December 2013 (UTC)
Now you're just getting picky, and I'd rather not get into an argument with you over a letter. Just let it drop. The letter schwa has never been used before on articles under the scope of ProjectEurovision, and the project has been around longer than you and I have been members of Wikipedia. And I very much doubt the decision to start using schwa would gain huge support overnight. So let's just leave things as they are, seeing as they are working perfectly so far. Wes Mᴥuse 08:00, 3 December 2013 (UTC)
It looks like there is more to this that is not explained on Wikipedia. Both Leyla Əliyeva and Leyla Əliyeva (presenter) redirect to Leyla Aliyeva and Leyla Aliyeva (presenter) respectively. They don't even use the schwa. Whatever the Wikipedian rules is, we are obviously not suppose to be using the schwa in written text. Although by the looks of it we're to redirect an article that would use the schwa to the Anglicised version. Wes Mᴥuse 08:07, 3 December 2013 (UTC)
