Disambiguation link notification for August 29[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Political status of Nagorno-Karabakh, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Montebello. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Reference number 70 in the Turkey article[edit]

Hello Etienne, I already added that reference (reference number 70 in the Turkey article) to the last paragraph of the History section related to the Ottoman Empire in the Turkey article. 武士道 (talk) 04:29, 30 August 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for your good faith edits. However, the lead should summarize the rest of the article. The Armenian, Assyrian, and Greek genocides are a notable part of Turkey's history. If you beg to differ, please refer to the talk page of Turkey article. Étienne Dolet (talk) 04:33, 30 August 2014 (UTC)

Quba[edit]

We made changes to the Guba mass grave article but i noticed on the Quba article it has a paragraph regarding the mass grave and it is pretty ridiculous:

In May 1918, an event similar to the March Days occurred in the Guba, where Dashnak detachment, under the command of Hamazasp Srvantsyan, arrived from Baku following Armenian Bolshevist communist politician Stepan Shahumyan's order. According to the investigative commission formed by the Government of Azerbaijan Democratic Republic, Hamazasp's unit burned and destroyed the city of Quba and killed at least 122 people.[4] In 2007, during the construction of a stadium, builders discovered a mass grave. Azerbaijani studies claim that the human remains found there were local residents of various nationalities, including Jews and Lezgins, who had been massacred in 1918.[5] To date, 600 human remains have been found, including about 50 children and 100 women.[6]

I think we should make changes to the article to make it similar to the Guba mass grave article. All of the sources are azeri: day.az, apa.az, zerkalo.az, etc. What do you think? We can take it to the talk page first and see what others think but i doubt anyone will respond. Ninetoyadome (talk) 03:09, 4 September 2014 (UTC)

Ninetoyadome (talk · contribs) I agree, we should make similar changes. I do feel we must defer this topic of conversation over to the talk page of Quba article. Also, the wording of the Guba Genocide Memorial Complex article is worrisome at best. It's not inline with basic NPOV Wikipedia policy. The abuse of the word "Genocide" is strinkingly problematic. Étienne Dolet (talk) 17:00, 4 September 2014 (UTC)

I think a good case could be made for merging Guba Genocide Memorial Complex into the Guba mass grave article. Tiptoethrutheminefield (talk) 21:50, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
@Tiptoethrutheminefield: Good point. I am willing to support such a merger. Étienne Dolet (talk) 22:06, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for your review. The issue has been fixed. Please respond on the nomination page.--Skr15081997 (talk) 06:58, 22 September 2014 (UTC)

Skr15081997 Okay, but before I respond, please let me know how you feel about the ALT hook on the nomination page. Thanks, Étienne Dolet (talk) 07:02, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
Skr15081997 Also, can you add a source to the Vandal statement please. Once done, I'll approve it. Étienne Dolet (talk) 07:05, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
I have removed the "Vandals" related fact as I could not find a source to support it.--Skr15081997 (talk) 07:52, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
Skr15081997 I found a source that says Treviso was subjugated to Hun, Ostrogoth, and Lombard control. It's on page 596 of this source. Just use it and well be good to go. Étienne Dolet (talk) 18:00, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for providing the source. I have added the info.--Skr15081997 (talk) 09:38, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

Hamidian Massacres[edit]

I saw that you posted a request for cleanup on File:Armenian children massacred.jpg, and though it was taken, you ended up reverting to the original. I think I can understand why you preferred the original, but since that would leave your request more or less unfulfilled, I figured I'd prepare an alternate version.

If you like it, feel free to use it. If you still prefer the original, feel free to request deletion for the alt. MjolnirPants Tell me all about it. 13:00, 22 September 2014 (UTC)

MjolnirPants Thank you! I actually just replaced it on the Hamidian massacre article. I liked it. It still has that authentic feel to it. Thank you so much! Étienne Dolet (talk) 17:54, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
No problem. I also replaced another image on that page with a cleaned up version (not one I did, an already existing one). MjolnirPants Tell me all about it. 19:20, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
MjolnirPants Thanks for replacing it. You know, that picture always makes me melancholic. Not only is the picture itself sad, but its been through its own degree of misfortunes on Wikipedia. I nominated that picture to FP (Wikipedia:Featured_picture_candidates/Refugees_of_Hamidian_massacre) after some good restoration work was done on it. But those who voted made a huge fuss over its quality. Every one had their own excuses, "not altered enough", "too altered", and etc. In my opinion, that nomination brought out the worst in the FP process. It also taught me something very important: you can't make everyone happy. Centpacrr said it best, "This is why I never nominate any images (or anything else) for such WP "merit badges" as it only brings out the nit pickers who, after they insist on unnecessary restoration, ignore the actual image itself in favor of criticizing it for being "too altered" or "not altered enough". Why not just appreciate the original image for what it is and what it depicts?" What he said is very wise and true. When you alter something, people are going to criticize you for not alternating it enough or for alternating it in the first place. And when you don't alter it, another group of people will criticize for scratches, blots, excess lighting, and etc. It's a catch-22. At any rate, the job you have is tough. I commend you for it. Sorry for such a long response. It's an important experience I just wanted to share. Étienne Dolet (talk) 21:21, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
It wasn't too long of a response, and it tracks very well with my own feelings and experiences, not here, but elsewhere. When it comes to beauty, everyone has their own ideal, and with that ideal come expectations. With differing expectations come arguments and bickering. I've had people hire me to restore old photos, and nitpick the restoration efforts until they have the original image, and I've have people hire me for the same thing, only to insist upon more and more effort until what they have doesn't even look like a photograph anymore. I try to pretty much ignore everyone's opinion but my own, unless there's something factual about their commentary (like Adam's comments about the missing textures in the nomination thread). MjolnirPants Tell me all about it. 13:03, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

The Road from Home: The Story of an Armenian Girl[edit]

There is no other notable topic, titled The Road from Home. May I rename it without subtitles? --George Ho (talk) 20:52, 19 October 2014 (UTC)

George Ho (talk · contribs) Thank you for your interest in the article. I thought about the name of the article as well. I still think the current name of the article should remain. However, in my opinion, if we can do a redirect of "The Road from Home", that will suffice. What do you think? Also, I accept your good faith edit with the image but I think am going to have to revert the image since that edition is not the commonly used anymore. Étienne Dolet (talk) 21:23, 19 October 2014 (UTC)
Please do not revert. Earliest edition is best recommended per MOS:BOOKS (oops, nonexistent; I wonder if MOS:NOVELS apply). As for the short title, I'll create a redirect in no time. --George Ho (talk) 21:28, 19 October 2014 (UTC)
George Ho (talk · contribs) Per MOS:NOVELS: The image presented in the table should be the most significant cover historically for that book; often this is the first edition, but occasionally it is not: There's no doubt in my mind that the latest cover is the most significant since it is much more common and is identified with the current version today. Also, the illustration of the later edition is done by David Kherdian's wife Nonny Hogrogian, a notable illustrator herself. That boosts the significance of the later cover substantially. I hope we can reach an agreement on this. It really makes a big difference. Étienne Dolet (talk) 21:41, 19 October 2014 (UTC)
Well, the earlier edition has the authentic (passport) photo of the author's mother. The later edition has a painting of her. The title is currently "The Story of an Armenian Girl", not "A True Story of Courage, Survival, and Hope". To do so, both image and later edition must be consistently used. The earlier edition cover matches the current title, so it must be used. --George Ho (talk) 21:46, 19 October 2014 (UTC)
Also, an image must be discussed in sources. If you want to use the later edition cover, the other title must be used. Otherwise, "The Road from Home" would be best bet. --George Ho (talk) 21:49, 19 October 2014 (UTC)
George Ho (talk · contribs) Alright, come to think of it, I think it be best to move the article to "The Road from Home". That way both editions will be better represented in the article. And we can then place the more common and significant cover. Agreed? Étienne Dolet (talk) 21:51, 19 October 2014 (UTC)
All right; I reverted the image back to what it was. And I renamed the page. Let's move on then. --George Ho (talk) 21:58, 19 October 2014 (UTC)
George Ho (talk · contribs) Great. By the way, the book is a must read. Étienne Dolet (talk) 22:04, 19 October 2014 (UTC)
