I don't think German fascism fit there[edit]

This kind of language is generally used for intellectuals not army personals, since fascism is before anything else an ideology. Fad (ix) 17:43, 7 February 2006 (UTC)

The name of the native city should be spelled according to the main article. Grandmaster (talk) 08:43, 20 November 2007 (UTC)
How cute Fadix was here. Grandmaster, can you please point me the policy for that? Thanks. VartanM (talk) 11:09, 20 November 2007 (UTC)
See relevant Naming conventions. Shushi has never been official name of the city, and even in Russian empire it was officially called Shusha. --Grandmaster (talk) 11:39, 20 November 2007 (UTC)
And those relevant naming conventions are? VartanM (talk) 18:16, 20 November 2007 (UTC)
See Wikipedia:Naming conventions (settlements) and Wikipedia:Naming conventions (geographic names). Both require using "common English name" of the settlement. And common English name, both in historical and modern context, is Shusha. Grandmaster (talk) 05:38, 21 November 2007 (UTC)
First one doesn't say anything about NK, Azerbaijan or Armenia. Second one is naming of the articles not the context of it. I don't see whats the big deal about this. This is biographic article about an Armenian person, and Armenians call the city Shushi. He most likely called it Shushi. VartanM (talk) 01:54, 23 November 2007 (UTC)
Doesn't matter. The official name of the city in the Russian empire was Shusha, that's what the article should call it. Grandmaster (talk) 06:06, 23 November 2007 (UTC)
Also, Hetoum removed mention of Azerbaijan, but left the statement that Nelson "moved with his family to Yerevan, Armenia at an early age". There was no Yerevan, Armenia before 1918. It was the same Russian empire. Grandmaster (talk) 11:45, 20 November 2007 (UTC)
There was Eastern Armenia (geographic location), but lets not get into that. I changed Armenia to Erivan Governorate. VartanM (talk) 18:21, 20 November 2007 (UTC)
Yes, that's more accurate and consistent with previous edits. Grandmaster (talk) 05:25, 21 November 2007 (UTC)

Destroyed statue[edit]

Parishan removed the content that mentioned the destruction of a statue in Shushi when it was under Azerbaijani control. I don't see why it should be controversial to mention whether it still exists or not (so there is no need to be ultra strict about the quality of the source,), and if the statues are mentioned at all something should be there about whether they still exist or not.
