Behzad Razavi[edit]

Your welcome for the little bit that I did on the new article you created. However, I wanted to warn you that copying and pasting information into Wikipedia is against guidelines. It is a copyright violation. So this means that you will need to rewrite his biography using your own words. Let me know if you have any problems. Good luck. CactusWriter | needles 21:46, 19 November 2008 (UTC)

That's fine, but try to get to it within the next day or so. Copyright problems can cause immediate deletion. As far as the notability of Razavi is concerned, I think that is well-established by the awards - so there are no problems there. CactusWriter | needles 21:56, 19 November 2008 (UTC)
Because copyright violation is a serious issue, I went ahead and corrected the article rather than wait. There is no problem with it now. There is one citation needed tag on the article for the sentence about being a top author for ISSCC - I wasn't able to find a source for that. It would be great if you could find a reference and add it in. Cheers. CactusWriter | needles 12:46, 21 November 2008 (UTC)

Lahijan[edit]

Hey thanks for helping out with the Lahijan article. I've been trying for some time (bout 2 yrs now) on and off to make it look better and more "professional" if you know what I mean. Just hit me up if you need any more pictures or stuff and thanks again for your help PKF8586 (talk) 21:04, 6 December 2008 (UTC)

It is also my family's home town buddy. Good to see there are more people who want to make their hometown look good to the world. PKF8586 (talk) 17:57, 7 December 2008 (UTC)

Kushyar Gilani[edit]

Hey, I just noticed that after you moved Kushyar ibn Labban to Kushyar Gilani, the article's sortkey is still "Labban, Kushyar". This means that the article shows up in categories under "L", which is odd and undesirable for obvious reasons. I'm not sure how to fix it though – whether it should be "Gilani, Kushyar" or "Kushyar Gilani" or something else entirely – and so was wondering if you could take a look? Thanks. – Arms & Hearts (talk) 13:21, 8 September 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for pointing that, his common name is Gilani. But I am not quite sure what to do to fix it. Can you please tell this to an admin? --sicaspi (talk) 16:27, 8 September 2012 (UTC)
So he should be sorted in categories under "G"? If so it's a simple matter of changing the {{DEFAULTSORT:Labban, Kushyar}} at the bottom of the article (above the categories) to read {{DEFAULTSORT:Gilani, Kushyar}}. – Arms & Hearts (talk) 23:21, 8 September 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Amlash culture[edit]

Hello Sicaspi,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Amlash culture for deletion, because it seems to be copied from another source.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to rewrite it in your own words, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. Thanks, George Ponderevo (talk) 15:11, 24 October 2012 (UTC)

Suicide of Hassan Rouhani's son[edit]

Greetings,

I deleted this sentence on Hassan Rouhani's article: "According to Yedioth Ahronoth he committed suicide "in protest of his father's close connection with Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei"." source: http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4393748,00.html The reason why I deleted it was because it did not fit the criteria of Wikipedia: Biography of Living Persons. Yedioth Ahronoth is an Israeli source, and due to the animosity between Israel and the Islamic Republic, it is in effect the equivalent of posting a Fars News Agency article regarding Benjamin Netanyahu. yNet got its source from the London based Saudi Arabian newspaper Asharq Alaswat, the article being written by Ali-Reza Nourizadeh. Nourizadeh is an exiled Iranian in London. While noted among exiled Iranian audiences, he cannot be regarded as a neutral source, because 1) He was associated with the Shah's government before the revolution, and currently has ties with neoconservatives such as Ken Timmerman. 2) He has a proven record of fudging the truth, or in some cases, making outright unsubstantiated claims. This source explains it better: http://cernigsnewshog.blogspot.com/2007/03/neocons-would-sacrice-15-uk-seamen-for.html

Did Rouhani's son kill himself in protest of his fathers political stance? Nobody knows for sure. However, quoting a single Israeli source that got its information from an exiled Iranian writer (known at times to fabricate things) on a Saudi Arabian newspaper is not a reliable source, and does not fit the criteria for biographies of living persons. If you can find a reliable source (and multiple sources for that matter, considering the gravity of this issue) that shows that his son killed himself for that reason, then it is acceptable. Irrespective of political beliefs, I personally cannot imagine what horrible pain a father must go through to see his son die in such a manner, so weak and unsubstantiated claims (which I suspect this whole issue is) only would make it worse.

Good luck, and best regardsPartridgeinapeartree (talk) 20:23, 29 June 2013 (UTC)

Hey. You can say your arguments in reliable source noticeboard and prove it. BTW, IMO deciding reliability of sources based on their "country of origin" is not strong. ,dgjdksvc;jknhg (talk) 21:52, 29 June 2013 (UTC)

Blocked for edit warring on Urmia[edit]

Since you felt it was appropriate to continue the edit warring on Urmia, despite my warning to all parties to stop and discuss changes on the talk page, you have been blocked for 24 hours. —Dark 05:13, 14 July 2013 (UTC)

I did discuss on the talk page which nobody opposed. It was the user who added content without WP:RS and provided no response to my entry. I did not do any "edit warring" I just did ONE edit. Please unblock me. I will only edit the Urmia talk page. --,dgjdksvc;jknhg (talk) 05:17, 14 July 2013 (UTC)
If you took a cursory glance at the article history, you'd know that there was an extended edit war going on. The other editor who reverted after my warning has also been blocked, for continuing the edit war. It's really irrelevant that it was just one edit, you continued to revert without gaining any consensus on the talk page. I told all parties involved to discuss and reach a consensus, before reintroducing the changes. Please note that the lack of response does not mean that "nobody opposed" the changes; as you can see from the article history, there are several people opposing the changes. If you wish for your block to be reviewed, please use {{unblock}}. Thanks. —Dark 06:29, 14 July 2013 (UTC)
Well, if they really have anything to say, they should mention it in the talk page. I don't know how long I should wait for them.--,dgjdksvc;jknhg (talk) 17:10, 14 July 2013 (UTC)

Urmia[edit]

Hello Siscapi, I am ArachKheradmand, I have added a source [1] to Urmia wiki page. I saw you writing that Encyclopedia Britannica is the ONLY valid source. How comes? And so, do other users have the right to add their sources or must they first accept the master's will? Thank you for your answer.

Proposed deletion of Stephen P. Boyd[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Stephen P. Boyd has been proposed for deletion because it appears to have no references. Under Wikipedia policy, this newly created biography of a living person will be deleted unless it has at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within seven days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one. reddogsix (talk) 22:07, 10 February 2014 (UTC)

Hi Sicaspi,

Can you please refer me to a source in which Massie states that he is not a libertarian, as opposed to a statement that he does not subscribe to a typical libertarian position on a few specific issues? I feel that the source we're disagreeing over refers to IP as "ironically" because 1) Massie has made money off IP, and 2) Massie is generally a libertarian. I have not been able to find a plausible alternative reading of the statement.

Alkibiades14 (talk) 20:49, 27 February 2014 (UTC)

Hello,
I am sorry, I think I (hurriedly) read that sentence as " it's one of the examples why I am not a libertarian". (i.e. I thought it is why instead of where) which caused me to think as if he is not libertarian in general and this is one of the reasons. ,dgjdksvc;jknhg (talk) 23:30, 27 February 2014 (UTC)

re Heshmat[edit]

Please undelete Ebrahim Heshmat. I will add references to it. ,dgjdksvc;jknhg (talk) 01:18, 1 March 2014 (UTC)

I'm no longer an admin, suggest you try another admin or WP:AN or something like that. Good luck, — Cirt (talk) 02:15, 1 March 2014 (UTC)
I'd suggest that you simply start a new article on the topic. The deleted page was eleven sentences in three paragraphs with very little sourcing: only http://iranmiras.ir/en_site/bldg/Qdisplaybldg.asp?title=Dr.Heshmat%20tomb&serial=6088&page=1&picture=False&map=False&info=False (which no longer works), and a print source, <Ebrahim Fakhrayi, Sardar-e Jangal (The Commander of the Jungle), Tehran, Iran: Javeedan Pub.,1983>. The page really would need a complete rewrite even if it were undeleted, so you'll probably have less work if you start from scratch. Since you obviously don't have the original text, this won't be G4 speedy deleteable — that criterion is for reposts, not for new articles on the same topic. Nyttend (talk) 13:24, 2 March 2014 (UTC)
I did some citing and added some stuff to it. By the way, I do not find enough English sources right now, do you accept Farsi sources? --,dgjdksvc;jknhg (talk) 20:18, 2 March 2014 (UTC)
