Turkish related articles[edit]

I see you've been making some good edits to a number of articles about Turkish subjects. You may want to join Wikipedia:WikiProject Turkey and/or Wikipedia:WikiProject Ottoman Empire, which are places where people who would like to improve articles about these areas can discuss them and coordinate their efforts. There are WikiProjects about many other subjects, too. --AFriedman (talk) 16:24, 15 March 2010 (UTC)

Welcome to Wikipedia. Everyone is welcome to make constructive contributions to Wikipedia, but at least one of your recent edits, such as the one you made to Khazar Khaganate, did not appear to be constructive and has been automatically reverted by ClueBot.

  • Please use the sandbox for any test edits you would like to make, and take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Note that human editors do monitor recent changes to Wikipedia articles, and administrators have the ability to block users from editing if they repeatedly engage in vandalism.
  • ClueBot produces very few false positives, but it does happen. If you believe the change you made should not have been detected as unconstructive, please report it here, remove this warning from your talk page, and then make the edit again.
  • The following is the log entry regarding this warning: Khazar Khaganate was changed by Dontbesogullible (u) (t) blanking the page on 2010-11-07T12:28:26+00:00 . Thank you. ClueBot (talk) 12:28, 7 November 2010 (UTC)
  • There is a discussion about the official (not elite common) language in the Bulgar Khanate on First Bulgarian Empire's talk page. You are wellcome there to participate in. Please, provide references abouth your statements. Thank you. Jingby (talk) 09:56, 18 November 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Bulgar dili[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Bulgar dili requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a very short article providing little or no context to the reader. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hang on}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion, or "db", tag; if no such tag exists, then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hang-on tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Reaper Eternal (talk) 12:50, 20 November 2010 (UTC)

Szekely[edit]

HI

Please discuss on the talk page Talk:Székely#Requested_move rather than edit warring over the page moves.

Thanks Chaosdruid (talk) 00:06, 7 March 2011 (UTC)

Székelys vs Székely[edit]

The usual plural form is Székelys. The plural form without the desinence -s, is also used, but more rarely:

-"the szekelys were" has 189 results on google books
-"the szekely were" has only 26 results on google books
-"the szekelys have" has 26 results on google books
-"the szekely have" has only 2 results on google books (Iaaasi (talk) 08:45, 7 March 2011 (UTC))

Request[edit]

Hello, I've seen your add at Szekely article and I'd like to ask you which is the source of the statement "The 16th century from the end of the remaining flags and uniforms show that the Szekler people used the sky-blue-gold-silver and red and black flags". Any text must be supported by a reliable source WP:RS (Iaaasi (talk) 11:58, 23 March 2011 (UTC))

Reply[edit]

Hello iaasi, I got it from the SZEKELY FLAG page in Hungarian language: Székely zászló

http://hu.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sz%C3%A9kely_z%C3%A1szl%C3%B3

it is the first paragraph: The 16th század végéről fennmaradt zászlók és egyenruhák tanúsága szerint, a székelység által használt az arany-égszinkék-ezüst, valamint a vörös és fekete a kimondottan székely szimbólumszínek.

There are two reliable sources that shows that information.

I am sorry, but I see no reference for the text "The 16th century from the end of the remaining flags and uniforms show that the Szekler people used the sky-blue-gold-silver and red and black flags" (hu.wikipedia can not be considered a source for en.wikipedia) (Iaaasi (talk) 20:07, 24 March 2011 (UTC))

March 2011[edit]

Information.png Welcome to Wikipedia. Please do not replace pages with blank content, as you did with this edit to Khazaria, as this is confusing to readers. The page's content has been restored for now. If there is a problem with the page, it should be edited or reverted to a previous version if possible; if you think the page should be removed entirely, see further information. Thank you. anndelion (talk) 18:13, 26 March 2011 (UTC)

Kazakhstan[edit]

Hello. You have added the following sentence to the article Kazakhstan: Kazakhstan is one of the active members of the Turkic Council and the TÜRKSOY community which is currently being directed by the former Minister of Culture of Kazakhstan. Though this addition can be usefull, as Kazakhstan's membership in these organization isn't mentionned anywhere in the article, it is not relevant enough to be part of the lead section. Please consider moving the sentence to foreign relations section which would be more suitable. Maimai009 14:39, 6 April 2011 (UTC)

You have been blocked from editing for a period of 24 hours for your disruption caused by edit warring by violation of the three-revert rule. During a dispute, you should first try to discuss controversial changes and seek consensus. If that proves unsuccessful you are encouraged to seek dispute resolution, and in some cases it may be appropriate to request page protection. If you would like to be unblocked, you may appeal this block by adding the text {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}} below this notice, but you should read the guide to appealing blocks first.

December 2011[edit]

Your addition to Khazars has been removed, as it appears to have added copyrighted material to Wikipedia without permission from the copyright holder. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other websites or printed material; such additions will be deleted. You may use external websites or publications as a source of information, but not as a source of article content such as sentences or images. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing. Jayjg (talk) 14:28, 6 December 2011 (UTC)

Specifically, with this addition you copied material directly from http://www.khazaria.com/khazar-history.html . Have you copied other material directly from that article or others? Jayjg (talk) 14:29, 6 December 2011 (UTC)
Yes, I got the information from that page. Did I make a mistake by not adding the REF tag? I forgot to add the ref tags. Can I add the information again by adding the ref tags?(talk)
If you copy information from a source you must put it in quotation marks - but that should be a last resort. Is there other material that has been copied word-for-word in the article? Jayjg (talk) 15:42, 6 December 2011 (UTC)
There are no others. By the way, can I paraphrase the sententes and add the information again this time by including the REF tag?
You can paraphrase it, but are you sure you actually wrote everything else? How about this:

Islamic armies conquered Persia, Syria, Mesopotamia, Egypt, Armenia, part of Azerbaijan and surrounded the Byzantine heartland (present-day Turkey) in a pincer movement which extended from the Mediterranean to the Caucasus and the southern shores of the Caspian. This was the time when the long series of wars called Khazar-Arab wars began. These wars eventually saw the Arabs defeated at every advance with the death of thousands of Arab soldiers including their commander, Abd ar-Rahman ibn Rabiah, and the Arab armies in complete disarray. The Arab armies' inability to traverse the Caucasus made it logistically impossible for them to besiege the Byzantine capital of Constantinople. Coupled with the military barrier presented by the Khazars themselves, this prevented Europe from more direct and intensive assaults by the forces of Islam, arguably keeping it from falling to the Muslim armies.

You wrote that on your own? Jayjg (talk) 01:00, 7 December 2011 (UTC)────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────

I got it from Arthur Koestler's Thirteenth Tribe, but I changed some words, for example in the book it says "the Muslims had conquered Persia, Syria, Mesopotamia, Egypt, and surrounded the Byzantine heartland in a deadly semi-circle" and I said "Islamic armies conquered Persia, Syria, Mesopotamia, Egypt, Armenia, part of Azerbaijan and surrounded the Byzantine heartland (present-day Turkey) in a pincer movement"... Is this still considered as violation? I will paraphrase the words from now on when I add information from books.

There are a lot of problems with this. To begin with, Koestler is not a WP:RS on the subject. Second, you haven't cited him. Third, you may be doing what is known as "close paraphrasing" - see Wikipedia:Plagiarism. Please review your contributions to ensure that sources are reliable, and properly cited and paraphrased. Jayjg (talk) 17:31, 9 December 2011 (UTC)

Thank you very much for the information. I will check them.

Another editor just removed all this material from the lede, because it had also been copied word-for-word from khazaria.com, I assume by you. I thought you were going to clean this up. Have you even attempted to do so? Jayjg (talk) 05:36, 30 December 2011 (UTC)

Sorry, I will check it again.

License tagging for File:Hunempire.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Hunempire.jpg. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information; to add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click the "Edit" tab at the top of the page and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia.

For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 12:06, 12 December 2011 (UTC)

March 2014[edit]

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at Turkey shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. 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.

To avoid being blocked, instead of reverting please consider using the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. See BRD for how this is done. You can post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection. Δρ.Κ. λόγοςπράξις 19:15, 3 March 2014 (UTC)
