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)

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)

People who deny the Armenian genocide are considered unreliable in Wikipedia because the consensus by the Wikipedia community is that the Armenian Genocide is a fact. Going against such a consensus by using denialist sources aren't going to fly. Also, "Armenian terrorism" doesn't sound like a scientific publication. It's best to replace with another reference.

I explained in my edit summary that the picture is fuzzy, both in small size and large. Anyone who clicks on it to enlarge it, as I did, will be disappointed. You could ask at WT:DYK for their opinion or intervention, but I personally think it works better as a quirky (the last slot). Best, Yoninah (talk) 23:38, 18 November 2014 (UTC)

But let me know if you can't, so I can look for other avenues asap. I don't normally do this but considering that I worked my butt off trying to find Mihran's granddaughter just so she can sign that release statement, I would really like to give not only myself a token of appreciation, but to her as well.

In ictu oculi (talk · contribs) I reverted much of the controversial edits he's been doing. A good way to spot him out is when he inserts the Guba mass grave propaganda in various articles. Also, he loves his sports. I'm glad you spotted him. I didn't even notice till you mentioned it to me. Kudos to you my friend! Étienne Dolet (talk) 01:03, 19 November 2014 (UTC)
Did the moving Azerbaijani towns to "English names" occur before or is this a new interest? It goes against what we do for every other Turkic geo name. In ictu oculi (talk) 01:08, 19 November 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, he'll try to sock again. Considering the fact that he was quite successful in adding several chunks of information for several months without getting caught. That will give him the necessary motivation for him to do it again. But to your point, I never remember the name changing being an issue with NovaSkola. I do remember that he got hit with a WP:BOOMERANG when he sent Ninetoyadome, Yerevanci, and myself to AE (see here:Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Enforcement/Archive135#Proudbolsahye.2FNinetoyadome.2FYerevanci). Then, he violated his topic ban and got blocked indefinitely. Unfortunately, for users like this, it's much harder to block someone for sockpuppeting than it is to have them topic banned. But that's how things go with the project. Étienne Dolet (talk) 01:24, 19 November 2014 (UTC)

Re: Misunderstanding[edit]

No problem. Your point on the ISIL talk page is well taken - and relevant to the ultimate decision. I was just thinking that it would be easier to see if anyone knows what we've done in the past and then decide whether to follow that example than try to discuss everything at once. I've just been part of too many multi-topic discussions, I guess. Unfortunately, I don't know how Wikipedia has done it - I was hoping that someone on the talk page there had experience with other conflicts' pages. – Philosopher Let us reason together. 02:42, 19 November 2014 (UTC)

Philosopher (talk · contribs) It's really nice of you to go out of your way and message me here. I appreciate it. Don't sweat about the misunderstanding, I wish I had made myself more clear in my response. At any rate, the discussion is a necessary one. Let's see what the community thinks. If there's no consensus reached, I may have to go WP:BOLD and remove it. If it gets reverted, we'll resort to the talk page and find different avenues of consensus build-up.

I'd double check the single source in the article. If it's based on one single partisan source, it may call for an AfD. Keep me posted. Étienne Dolet (talk) 05:56, 22 November 2014 (UTC)
I nominated the article for deletion as the only source is not a reliable website, the site has no sources and the article is copied word for word from the website. Other sources i found online just talked about construction done on the territory by Armenia. About how Karabakh authorities authorized construction in the forest of recreation facilities for an aluminum enterprise. Also it stated: "It is interesting to note that one of the arguments used by azeris in challenging the construction in Topkhana was that the park was "a national shrine," by virtue of the fact that a battle against Iranian forces had taken place there in the 18th century.[1] I don't know if i did the deletion nomination correctly. I guess we will see what happens. Ninetoyadome (talk) 07:38, 22 November 2014 (UTC)
Ninetoyadome (talk · contribs) You could've just had it speedily deleted since the article is one big copy-vio. There's tags for that. Étienne Dolet (talk) 07:41, 22 November 2014 (UTC)
The AfD process does not seem to have been done correctly - leads to a dead link. The article's current content is propaganda, and the source is propaganda. other sources suggest there does appear to have been a "Dashalti State Natural Reserve" created (or proposed to be created?) by Azerbaijan in 1988 - it might contain this forest (if the forest actually exists). And that also in 1988 the Kanaker aluminum factory is alleged to have been chopping down trees in a "Tophane forest" near Shusha. But none of this seems notable enough to justify an article even if it did have neutral sources. Tiptoethrutheminefield (talk) 15:27, 22 November 2014 (UTC)
And here is a source [5]. Tiptoethrutheminefield - A hillside with "a single tree and a few straggly bushes". Azeri propaganda turns it into a forest! It was a "forest" by 2009 [6] (talk) 15:31, 22 November 2014 (UTC)
I'm going to have some fun with the article. Maybe don't complete the AfD until you see what I have done. You may want to retain it and stop the AfD. Tiptoethrutheminefield (talk) 15:54, 22 November 2014 (UTC)
Anyone know, is the Dashalti river mentioned in the article the Karkar river? Tiptoethrutheminefield (talk) 22:24, 22 November 2014 (UTC)
Can we defer this discussion to the talk page of the article please. Étienne Dolet (talk) 00:24, 23 November 2014 (UTC)

DYK for Mihran Mesrobian[edit]

Nice work on this article. I've always loved Mesrobian's designs from the 1920s-1930s. APK whisper in my ear 19:57, 22 November 2014 (UTC)

I lived in Dupont Circle from 2006-2013. (my partner and I moved to the Shenandoah Valley last year) I love old architecture and local history, so this article is right up my alley. I've seen and photographed many of his buildings; a few of my photos are in the article. APK whisper in my ear 20:21, 22 November 2014 (UTC)
AgnosticPreachersKid (talk · contribs) Oh my, I didn't notice you took those photos! Kudos to you. Those photos really helped out with the article. I wouldn't think it would grasp as much attention without them. Let me know if you take more photos. We'll place them in the Career section of the article. The gallery section is a little too far down. I'm sure many readers have missed it. Étienne Dolet (talk) 00:37, 23 November 2014 (UTC)

Your GA nomination of Charles Aznavour[edit]

The article Charles Aznavour you nominated as a good article has failed Symbol oppose vote.svg; see Talk:Charles Aznavour for reasons why the nomination failed. If or when these points have been taken care of, you may apply for a new nomination of the article. Message delivered by Legobot, on behalf of Ritchie333 -- Ritchie333 (talk) 17:42, 1 December 2014 (UTC)

Sorry about that. I really don't like the term "failed", I prefer "not listed". All it really means is that it's not in a state to pass GAN now, but it's been tagged as a vital article, so it's a topic well worth tackling in earnest for a future GA review. Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 17:45, 1 December 2014 (UTC)
Hi Ritchie333, thank you so much for taking your time to review this. Your review was extensive and very well elaborated. I wish you gave me time to carry out the suggestions you made. Can you give me a week? Étienne Dolet (talk) 18:34, 1 December 2014 (UTC)
Thanks - glad I have't scared you off. By all means work through the issues as they'll make the article better, but the sourcing and recentism issues are such that I expect substantial amounts of the article to be changed to the extent I'd have to do a whole new review. If I looked the article now, I'd find it a long hard slog if I'm honest. It may be simpler to tackle one section at a time and move on. Best of luck, anyhow. Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 18:58, 1 December 2014 (UTC)

"Thretening"[edit]

Why suggestion to cease reverting and came to conclusion, you accept as threatening. Strange attitude. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Fmelikov (talkcontribs) 02:53, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

Warning[edit]

Warning Stop icon Your recent editing history at Lavash‎ shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. To resolve the content dispute, please do not revert or change the edits of others when you get reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. The best practice at this stage is to discuss, not edit-war. See BRD for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly--Fmelikov (talk) 03:04, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

Your recent DYK reviews[edit]

Just to let you know that I placed notes on your recent reviews for:

The fact that a nomination is a GA does not automatically qualify it for DYK. We have found sourcing and close paraphrasing issues in GA articles. Please check each nomination against the usual DYK criteria. Thank you, Yoninah (talk) 12:49, 29 December 2014 (UTC)

Animal name changes in Turkey[edit]

The revision of the article consisted of the addition of the full statement by the ministry of subject; based on the full statement declared by the ministry in the original language (here: Turkish). I have revised the translation to better reflect the statement. In addition, the called revision also included the statement made by the executive secretary of the scientific organisation (International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature) that is overseeing the nomenclature of subspecies (Mr. Polaszek). Barring the objection to using the word "attempt" in reference to the changing the names, which has been corrected since. I'm failing to see why my revisions have been undo-ed consistently without much explanation, since the revised content was about the facts, not an re-aligned version of it. It would be better if you can state your explanations regarding the undo of revision 640114330; as to where the translation was at fault. In which part of the revised article had the claimed translation error occurred.

Because it is much more preferable to have a professional translation of the quote from a reliable source, rather than your personal translation. Étienne Dolet (talk) 22:12, 30 December 2014 (UTC)

The article would be significantly better if the revision was not undo-ed as a whole. I'm reversing to the revisions leaving the translation as it was before.

That's fine with me. But I may have to do some copy-edits. Étienne Dolet (talk) 22:20, 30 December 2014 (UTC)
