It does not make much sense not to know your religion. Undeclared is better.)[edit]

Maybe in your mind , it does not , because you are turkish , thus muslim , thus you see the world that way . But in albania IT DOES MAKE SENSE , because in comunism it had been an atheist country . Let me also tell to you , dont have high hopes , even the 50 % of muslims in albania is a highly exagarated number , because the 1,5 milion albanians living abroad have not been counted in this census , and the very vast majority of them are either atheist/agnost ( such as me ) or catholic/orthodox . Furthemore , many people declare themselves muslims without being muslims or practising any religion , but as a tradition or a family trait . Please , be interested in the muslims of your country , or the religion statistics . If we need help , from someone to teach us what makes sense and not , we will call you , but dont have high hopes . — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:25, 2 October 2013 (UTC)

Ethnologue says 6 mill.[edit]

Do you have the mental capacity of at least a 5 year old kid , to see the sourced population per country in the box below ?! 3 milion in albania , 1.8 milion in Kosova , 0.5 milion in macedonia , 0,5 in greece , 0,5 in Italy etc. etc . Please stop vandalizing albanian articles . Dear turkish friend , we would apreciate if you would stick to your matters , of turkish interest . Otherwise you will be reported for vandalizing . — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:31, 2 October 2013 (UTC)


If you had a minimum knowledge and understanding of linguistics you would know that there are no opinion when it comes to isoglosses, either they are present or they are not (they are words)!! The way you'd like the article to be written is a distorted interpretation of Orel's quotation, as he does not 'reconstruct other languages' but deals only with Albanian-Greek words in that section! The same he does with Balto-Slavic and other groups, so I don't understand what are you trying to proveEtimo (talk) 20:41, 16 December 2013 (UTC)

Template:Largest cities in Turkey[edit]

Can you check the numbers for Izmir in Template:Largest cities in Turkey? It looks a bit strange, a decline of more than 600.000 people in a year. The Banner talk 11:26, 11 February 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for your caution[edit]

You said "I think you may have misunderstood Chipmunkdavis just a little." You are right. Someone took the draft to my namespace. Thanks for your caution.Alexyflemming (talk) 13:45, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

Reason for the deletion of the templates[edit]

Lfdder provided a reasoning for the deletion of the templates here. Do you have any reason other than that of Lfdder to delete the Templates from the article? If so, what?Alexyflemming (talk) 09:03, 21 March 2014 (UTC)

Moved from user page[edit]


You say:

PLEASE READ BEFORE EDITING! WHEN YOU UPDATE A COUNTRY'S POPULATION - PLEASE ALSO UPDATE THE EXPRESSION NEXT TO IT (column "% of world population") WITH THE SAME NUMBER EXCLUDING COMMAS (the #expr: equation). --> I have done the second update for your last Sweden entry. Regards! --T*U (talk) 16:55, 5 June 2014 (UTC)

My reply:

I am not sure what you mean. I thought that the column % would be automatic updatet as well as the ranking number. Like population clocks are updated according to pre-programmed formulas...

Best regards


I think I`ve got it now[edit]

Today I have done two updates on the list of countries by population. You may check it. Best regards Sokndal — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sokndal (talkcontribs) 15:18, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

Hello. Please read the "language" section in the article before you unrevert. This is nothing about the "source reliablity" this is about he WP:FRINGE.

Thnx too[edit]

No need to apologize. Thanks for the intervention in the topic. Unfortunately it seems that a wide variety of similar articles have been the target of persistent wp:OWN, such as in Epirus.Alexikoua (talk) 11:13, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

Cypriot place names[edit]

Hi TU-nor. There's something like a discussion about changing the names of a number of village articles in Cyprus you might be interested in commenting on here. Just thought I'd let you know. Thanks. (talk) 16:31, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

NC places opening paragraph[edit]

Hi TU-nor, I'm wondering if you think the wording I've been using in the opening para of places in Northern Cyprus is all right (see e.g. Prastio, Famagusta). I'm asking mainly 'cause some seem to want to distinguish between the state and the island, which might be seen as more 'neutral'. (talk) 12:53, 6 November 2014 (UTC)

I had not noticed that the editor in question linked "Cyprus" to the "Geography of Cyprus" article. That is wierd. In some instances I have used the formula "the island of Cyprus" for clarification, but the link should nevertheless go to "Cyprus", not to "Geography". I think that your wording is fine, but there may be people objecting, so to avoid unnecessary quibble, you could say "in the island of Cyprus" while linking to "Cyprus". --T*U (talk) 13:53, 6 November 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the advice, but wouldn't saying 'island' and then pointing readers to the country article be a tad confusing? (talk) 14:09, 6 November 2014 (UTC)
Not in my opinion, since the "Cyprus" article is about "the island country of Cyprus", that is island and country. There is no other article to link to, since the "Geography of Cyprus" mainly concerns itself with natural geography, not with human activity. --T*U (talk) 14:26, 6 November 2014 (UTC)
Ok, thanks again. (talk) 14:42, 6 November 2014 (UTC)

Hi, TU-nor, it's me again. I've been editing the pages of some mahalleler in Northern Cyprus that appear to have been demarcated in recent years (i.e. after the division of the island), and I've hit a snag. It seems wrong to say that -- for example -- Ersin Paşa is part of Cyprus, since the RoC wouldn't recognise any such administrative division, so I've resorted to stating that the town to which they belong is de jure part of Cyprus. However, I think it might still be inappropriate to remove Cyprus and its district from the infobox. Do you have any ideas? P.S. Thanks for your support on ANI. P.P.S. I really kind of doubt mahalleler even deserve their own articles. Also pinging User:Dr.K. in case he's got any ideas. (talk) 17:50, 9 November 2014 (UTC)

As usual, you seem to have found a good solution by using the town name. I think there is no problem keeping Cyprus and the district in the infobox. The place is, after all, in that district even if the adm.div. is not acknowlegded. I see no harm in keeping a separate article for the small mahalleler. As far as I can see, there are even smaller places with separate articles in many other countries. --T*U (talk) 21:07, 9 November 2014 (UTC)
@IP editor: I agree with your approach, and I also agree with TU-nor's evaluation. Thanks for the ping. Take care guys. Δρ.Κ. λόγοςπράξις 01:56, 10 November 2014 (UTC)
Ok, thanks both. I'll keep it the way it is then, (talk) 10:39, 10 November 2014 (UTC)

Sockpuppet investigations/TU-nor[edit]

You are suspected of sock puppetry, which means that someone suspects you of using multiple Wikipedia accounts for prohibited purposes. Please make yourself familiar with the notes for the suspect, then respond to the evidence at Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/TU-nor. Thank you. Nosophobia (talk) 09:47, 1 December 2014 (UTC)

Socks giving sock warnings and opening (spurious) SPIs. What is the world coming to? Δρ.Κ. λόγοςπράξις 20:06, 1 December 2014 (UTC)
Indeed! --T*U (talk) 21:09, 1 December 2014 (UTC)
Hi T*U. As you may have noticed, CU deleted the SPI of the sock. Δρ.Κ. λόγοςπράξις 20:57, 2 December 2014 (UTC)
Btw, Nosophobia is a sock of Hadgimarvi. Please see Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Alexyflemming. Δρ.Κ. λόγοςπράξις 21:06, 2 December 2014 (UTC)
Thanks! So it was that one, not the other! Well, they seem to be soulmates. So what next, I wonder. Take care! --T*U (talk) 21:58, 2 December 2014 (UTC)
They may have been coordinating behind the scenes and they divided their labour accordingly. One sock to restore the master's article work, the other to get even by opening an SPI against their perceived "opponents". But they broke the cardinal rule of SPIs: Socking to open a reverse SPI on legitimate editors is frowned upon to say the least. What can I say? As far as what's next, if past behaviour is any indication, these are some committed and prolific sockpuppeteers. I can almost see them weaving the next sock in their sock factory. I just don't know if it's going to be wool or cotton, or when it will appear. :) Too bad, with Christmas approaching, socks are supposed to be used for presents, not for covert activities. But c'est la vie. All the best. Δρ.Κ. λόγοςπράξις 22:28, 2 December 2014 (UTC)
Given this latest revelation, that the author of the spurious SPI is Hadgimarvi, I don't see how there can be any doubt that Hadgimarvi and Alexyflemming are one the same. And if this person is indeed User:Justice Forever (which it seems to me that they are), then we should not be surprised in the least. (talk) 19:33, 3 December 2014 (UTC)
I am not quite convinced that they are one and the same. There is something in their styles that do not ring the same bells for me. But they for sure have the same agenda, and they obviously co-operate. And I am afraid there are more of them out there. Better be prepared for the next attack! Take care! --T*U (talk) 21:08, 3 December 2014 (UTC)
(edit conflict) I think Hadji and Alexy have different mo, so it is more probable that they coordinate off-wiki rather than being the same person. I also think Alexy is Justice Forever. The problem was that Justice Forever got stale due to inactivity and could not be traced by CU. The last SPI I opened in January 2014 for JFE was very ducky but Alexy got lucky. And yes, like TU-nor says, the new sock is being woven as we speak. Take care guys. Δρ.Κ. λόγοςπράξις 21:19, 3 December 2014 (UTC)
I think it's more likely that whoever's behind these socks has created two personas, if you will, in an attempt to mislead us. Hadgimarvi's report was way too similar to Alexy's rants on his talk page before he had his talk page access revoked. But yes, we better brace ourselves for some Christmas-time socking. (talk) 01:51, 4 December 2014 (UTC)
Nothing is certain in the murky world of socking, but if Hadgi were Alexy the CU would have found the connection. I guess they attempted diversionary tactics on two fronts but that didn't work quite the way they had hoped. Thanks to your early warning and the help from the CU and the blocking admin the disruption ended soon enough. In any case, hopefully the only Christmas socks will be the ones hanging full of presents. Best of the Season to both of you. :) Δρ.Κ. λόγοςπράξις 04:17, 4 December 2014 (UTC)
The same to you. (talk) 11:22, 4 December 2014 (UTC)
Thank you very much. :) Δρ.Κ. λόγοςπράξις 19:21, 4 December 2014 (UTC)
And I also add my greetings to both of you! --T*U (talk) 22:23, 4 December 2014 (UTC)
Thank you T*U. Take care. :) Δρ.Κ. λόγοςπράξις 04:12, 5 December 2014 (UTC)

Flag icons[edit]

Hi TU-nor. You might be interested to weigh in here. IJBall sought clarification after a disagreement at Louroujina. If I recall correctly, you restored the flag icons after they were removed from some of these articles. (talk) 12:29, 8 December 2014 (UTC)

To clarify, discussion is going on at the MOS:ICONS Talk page... --IJBall (talk) 19:34, 8 December 2014 (UTC)
