- That's cool too. Removing the merge-from template here. --Skoosh 00:01, 18 August 2005 (UTC)
Anyone want to make a redirect from "Ortukid?" So many archaic spellings...
Was the move to Artuklu really necessary? Is "Artuk" any better a transliteration than "Ortoq"? It also seems to me that Muslim dynasties are usually referred to as Fatimid, Abbasid, Hamdanid, etc etc...even the Turkish ones, Zengid, even Seljukid sometimes. Why "Artuklu"?

Sorry, I read your message only today. When one googles Ortoqid, the only hits are wikipedia and its extensions. I could understand Artuqid, Brittanica refers to the dynasty as such, but Ortoqid is definitely alien and distant to the Turkish original spelling of the name of the family (Artuk, hence Artuklu for those of the Artuk), and shocking for a Turkish eye. Osmanli is sometimes used for Ottoman in English too. Artuqid is fine with me as well. Cretanforever
