I previously edited (and reverted) the climate section of Istanbul according to credible and verifiable scientific sources and websites.[edit]

I previously edited (and reverted) the climate section of Istanbul according to credible and verifiable scientific sources and websites.

I reverted the climate section of Istanbul to the edition I did, because the statistics about the weather are from two noverifable travel site (I did mot remove them however, but unfortunately there is no link to its original source, and in the other travel site it is not stated at all. Nevertheless I removed the number of days of snow, fog, thunderstorms etc. because numbers are subject to change and vary constantly; the important feature is the occurence of certain weather phenomenon in this case snow, fog, thunderstorms etc. and not the overemphasis on the number of days). I also added new revised data of the annual preciptation that has been released by the Turkish State Meteorological Service this year in 2010. Ultimately the reference from the World Meteorological Organization is based on climate data released by the Turkish State Meteorological Service (and from official meteorological websites in general).

I added references that are and should only be from official meteorological sources/websites - and not from dubious and unreferenced travel websites, from which the the statistics about the weather and climate of Istanbul were put.

When describing the weather of a city, plain and clear language should be used, not the overflowing langauge frequently used in travel websites.

Official data about the weather statistics and climate of is Istanbul are only taken from the weather stations of the Istanbul Regional Directorate within the city limits: e.g. Göztepe, Sarıyer which are quite close to the traditional city center (in the European side), due to the greatly varying precipitation and temperature levels in the city.

Here are the sources which I added from the Turkish State Meteorological Service about the Average Annual Precipitation and the Extreme Values Measured in Istanbul Regional Directorate (Göztepe) (In Tukish only):

Ultimately the two nonverifiable sources: Istanbul, Turkey Historical Weather Data with Monthly Details (Source: International Station Meteorological Climate Summary) and Statistics: Historical Weather Information for Istanbul should be replaced with verifiable sources from credible academic and official weather/climate websites, in the not so distant future. If I can find such sources about the weather details about Istanbul I shall put them.

What the hell are you talking about? It's your version, your reversions which keep introducing poor, unreliable sources. I keep trying to remove them and rewrite the section to sound more educated, but you keep insisting on reinstating this kindergarten-level English with choppy sentences and blogspam references. There is no excuse for it.
This is the English Wikipedia, and when there are reliable English sources which support a claim, they should be given precedence. It's very hard for readers to verify information not written in their language, and I can see from here that the sentence "The highest recorded temperature was 40.5 °C (105 °F) on 12 July 2000, and the lowest recorded temperature was −16.1 °C (3 °F) on 9 February 1927." is not supported by the source. An exception can be made for the Turkish Meteorological Authority, but the site you referenced contains no information about temperatures. Therefore, you are forcing the article to use two sources to generate the climate table. This simply leads to confusion, particularly because the Turkish Meteorological Authority suggests that the city gets 150 mm more rain than noted by the WMO, the BBC, and other reasonably reliable sources for weather stats.
If you want to rewrite the section so it's not as heavy on numbers, be my guest, but it is very difficult to cite "The weather in Istanbul is pleasant year-round." Average numbers are easy to cite and adequately depict the climate in a manner that isn't editorializing. If we were to go by your logic, where numbers don't matter, we wouldn't even include a climate table. But, as I said, you are welcome to try. But quit degrading the article by insisting it employ one-sentence paragraphs and gutter references. -- tariqabjotu 11:26, 3 August 2010 (UTC)
Do you plan to respond any time soon? -- tariqabjotu 23:36, 8 August 2010 (UTC)


Vandalism[edit]

Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to vandalize Wikipedia, as you did at Mediterranean climate, you may be blocked from editing. --Milkrawler (talk) 15:29, 11 December 2010 (UTC)

December 2010[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. Everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia. However, talk pages are meant to be a record of a discussion; deleting or editing legitimate comments, as you did at Talk:Ankara, is considered bad practice, even if you meant well. Even making spelling and grammatical corrections in others' comments is generally frowned upon, as it tends to irritate the users whose comments you are correcting. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you. -- Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 09:23, 28 December 2010 (UTC)

Gulf of Iskenderun[edit]

Can you please explain removal of the sourced information about history of Gulf of Iskenderun.Aram-van--Aram-van (talk) 07:47, 6 February 2011 (UTC)

To Aram-van and Menikure. The Gulf of Iskenderun is a geographical article.[edit]

To Aram-van and Menikure. The Gulf of Iskenderun is a geographical article.

There are already separate articles (with a long and detailed history and periods) for Cilicia, for Cilician Armenia and many articles related to them. You can add internal links to them in the Gulf of Iskenderun article, but a history section does not belong in a geographical article, but appropriately in the articles I mentioned above.

Antioch, capital of Armenia Syria![edit]

There are a large number of references attesting to the fact that Antioch was a capital under Greek and Roman rule. Not sure why you are reverted this, but future reversions, without credible discussion will be poorly well regarded. Student7 (talk) 20:07, 21 May 2011 (UTC)

Looks like it was the capital of Syria. Not quite the same thing at all. Sorry. Student7 (talk) 22:54, 23 May 2011 (UTC)

June 2011[edit]

Please do not remove content or templates from pages on Wikipedia, as you did to Northern Cyprus, without giving a valid reason for the removal in the edit summary. Your content removal does not appear constructive, and has been reverted. Please make use of the sandbox if you'd like to experiment with test edits. Thank you. A Macedonian, a Greek.

Climate in Ankara[edit]

Hi Menikure, thanks for your edits to Ankara, I assume you updated the stats. But could you please provide an edit summary with your edits in the future? It makes it easier for other editors to validate your edits without having to check every single number. It will also decrease your chances of a triggerhappy vandalism-huntur reverting your edits, so take note! Thanks and keep up the good work, Pim Rijkee (talk) 21:35, 14 June 2011 (UTC)

July 2011[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. Everyone is welcome to contribute to the encyclopedia, but when you add or change content, as you did to the article Subtropics, please cite a reliable source for your addition. This helps maintain our policy of verifiability. See Wikipedia:Citing sources for how to cite sources, and the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you. Also do not remove {{cn}} without adding a reliable and verifiable source(s). Bidgee (talk) 20:18, 17 July 2011 (UTC)

Please remove your request from the WP:Arbitration enforcement board[edit]

Hello Menikure. With this edit you added a complaint at the AE board, which is out of place there. There is no Arbcom sanction to be enforced. Please delete your request. You might be able to get a hearing at some other admin board. Consider asking at WP:Editor assistance/Requests and make a brief statement of what you want. See WP:DR for general advice on how to resolve disputes. Thank you, EdJohnston (talk) 22:13, 24 August 2011 (UTC)

FYI[edit]

Hello. Regarding the recent revert you made: you may already know about them, but you might find Wikipedia:Template messages/User talk namespace useful. After a revert, these can be placed on the user's talk page to let them know you considered their edit inappropriate, and also direct new users towards the sandbox. They can also be used to give a stern warning to a vandal when they've been previously warned. Thank you. -FASTILY (TALK) 20:10, 31 August 2011 (UTC)
