Ossetia[edit]

გამარჯობა Kober. არ ვიცი, ვარღვევ თუ არა ამით წესებს, ქართულად რომ გწერ, მაგრამ ინგლისურად წერაზე საკმაოდ დიდი დრო მეკარგება. პირველ რიგში მინდა აღვნიშნო, რომ ეს "1922" სტატიაში Ossetia თვალში მხვდება. იცი, მე კარგად ვერ ვერკვევი ვიკიპედიის წესებში, პროცედურებში და ა.შ., მაგრამ ერთხელ ცანგალამ ამიხსნა, რომ სადავო პუნქტების გარკვევა ადმინისტრაციასთან შეიძლება. მაინტერესებს, დიდ დროსა და ენერგიას ხომ არ დაგაკარგვინებს, ეს საკითხი ადმინისტრაციასთან რომ გაირკვეს? მე უბრალოდ ჩემი ინგლისურით ვერ შევძლებ ამას, სამწუხაროდ. ამასთან, არის საკითხები, სადაც ნეიტრალურობას ვერ ვინარჩუნებ ხოლმე. თან ვფიქრობ, შენი განათლება ისტორიასთან უნდა იყოს ახლოს. მერე თავად სტატია Ossetia: მაინტერესებს რამდენად გამართლებულია ასეთი სათაურით სტატიის არსებობა? Ossetia ხომ არც გეოგრაფიული და არც პოლიტიკური სახელწოდება არ არის. (ასე ხომ მაგალითად, "სომხეთი" კონტინენტზეც ვერ დაეტევა). ეთნოლინგვისტური რეგიონი კი ლოგიკურად შეიძლება მიეკუთვნოს სტატიასOssetians. ეს საკითხიც ადმინისტრაციასთან გასარკვევი ხომ არ არის?

about Colchis[edit]

104. Ведь колхи, по-видимому, египтяне: я это понял сам еще прежде, чем услышал от других. Заинтересовавшись этим, я стал расспрашивать [об этом родстве] как в Колхиде, так и в Египте. Колхи сохранили более ясные воспоминания о египтянах, чем египтяне о колхах. Впрочем, египтяне говорили мне, что, по их мнению, колхи ведут свое происхождение от воинов Сесострисова войска. Сам я пришел к такому же выводу, потому что они темнокожие, с курчавыми волосами. Впрочем, это еще ничего не доказывает. Ведь есть и другие народы такого же вида. Гораздо более зато основательны следующие доводы. Только три народа на земле искони подвергают себя обрезанию: колхи, египтяне и эфиопы. Финикияне же и сирийцы, что в Палестине, сами признают, что заимствовали этот обычай у египтян. А сирийцы, живущие на реках Фермодонте113 и Парфении, и их соседи-макроны говорят, что лишь недавно переняли обрезание у египтян. Это ведь единственные народы, совершающие обрезание, и все они, очевидно, подражают этому обычаю египтян. Что до самих египтян и эфиопов, то я не могу сказать, кто из них и у кого заимствовал этот обычай. Ведь он, очевидно, очень древний. А то что [финикияне и сирийцы] переняли этот обычай вследствие торговых сношений с Египтом, этому есть вот какое важное доказательство. Все финикияне, которые общаются с Элладой, уже больше не подражают египтянам н не обрезают своих детей.

105. Назову еще одну черту сходства колхов с египтянами. Только они одни да египтяне изготовляют полотно одинаковым способом. Так же и весь образ жизни, и язык у них похожи. У эллинов, правда, колхидское полотно называется сардонским, а привозимое из Египта – египетским.

A dubious map[edit]

Please refrain from placing 1 map. It looks more dubious than the second one. I'm going to remove both maps. Taamu (talk) 10:46, 11 July 2009 (UTC)

Check several other Common mapsthen. First of all we shoud not refer to Wikipedia. 2) The reference[1] shows Alania in 12-15 centuries. As for this[2], it doesn't show the boarders of Alania. Can you please provide me a reference that would show exactly the same boarders of Alania (11-12 centuties) as onthis map.
Huh. (1) Where do you see me referring to Wikipedia? (2) Yes, it does. So what? (3) Alania's borders cannot be shown with precision on any map. Most of what we know of that country comes fom the medieval Byzantine and Georgian sources, neither of which specify Alania's borders, but do not certainly afford to it a large portion of Georgia such on that user-made map you find "less dubious" than those based on published sources. Moreover, one cannot speak of Alania as a centralized political entity with strictly defined borders or government.--KoberTalk 11:13, 11 July 2009 (UTC)
1) You told me to check Wikimedia commons. 2) 12-15 is not 11-12 centuries. 3) Alania's borders cannot be shown with precision on any map. Huh... But your map has clear borders. So, if you do not have a source that would show exactly the same boarders, then I will have to remove this map from Alania related articles. Taamu (talk) 11:21, 11 July 2009 (UTC)

Editing survey[edit]

Hi Kober. My name is Mike Lyons and I am a doctoral student at Indiana University. I am conducting research on the writing and editing of high traffic current events articles on Wikipedia. I have noticed in the archives at 2008 South Ossetia war that you have have been a key contributor to the article. I was hoping you would agree to fill out a brief survey about your experience. This study aims to help expand our thinking about collaborative knowledge production. Believe me I share your likely disdain for surveys but your participation would be immensely helpful in making the study a success. A link to the survey is included below. An explanation of my project is included with the survey.

Vandalism[edit]

Regarding your comment that "explained vandalism is still vandalism". This false and your persistent accusations are uncivil. You are not assuming good faith and you're making up a poor excuse to revert a change that you don't like. He explained why he felt the edit was necessary both in the edit summary and in talk, in great detail I might add. That can be considered nothing other than a good faith edit, even if you feel it was disruptive or ill advised. There is no malicious intent here.

Vandalism is a deliberate attempt to compromise the integrity of Wikipedia.

"Any good-faith effort to improve the encyclopedia, even if misguided or ill-considered, is not vandalism. Even harmful edits that are not explicitly made in bad faith are not vandalism."

"Avoid the word "vandal". In particular, this word should not be used to refer to any contributor in good standing, or to any edits that might have been made in good faith. This is because if the edits were made in good faith, they are not vandalism. Instead of calling the person who made the edits a "vandal", discuss your concerns with them. Comment on the content and substance of the edits, instead of making personal comments."

Please do not accuse people of vandalizing simply because you disagree with their edits. This is disruptive and counterproductive. And as a final word, if you truly and honestly do believe the edit was vandalism, then I challenge you to report it and see what the admins have to say. If you don't, I'll consider that your admission of being wrong, and I would strongly suggest you revert yourself and further discuss the dispute on the talk page. LokiiT (talk) 13:07, 20 September 2009 (UTC)

I don't remember to have ever asked of you to tutor mee. Removal of well-sourced information regarding the official position of one of the combatant sides is vandalism even if you feel your buddy acted in good faith. Btw, tradition of throwing accusations of vandalism around comes from your buddy. I'm not going to rever myself, and I would strongly suggest you discuss your grievances on the article's talk page, not here. --KoberTalk14:47, 20 September 2009 (UTC)
I don't remember being asked to tutor you either, so I won't try. I'm only trying to inform you. Regarding the content, I agree with its removal. A government making unsubstantiated accusations at a country they're at war with may be "official", but it's unimportant for an article about a weapon. The type of missile used in this alleged attack is of no importance, and the fact that they even mentioned the Iskander specifically points to obvious political motivations in the accusations (ie. your're using your shiny new hi-tech weapon to destroy civilian infrastructure, shame on you!) This sort of political bickering has no place in the article in my opinion. There are specific articles and sections to put government propaganda. Therefore I've removed the content again, and I ask that you please refrain from edit warring any further and discuss it on the talk page. Thanks.LokiiT (talk) 15:20, 24 September 2009 (UTC)
I have already asked you to post your comments regarding this topic on that article's talk page, not here. It is you who needs to stop edit warring and discuss your grivances on the talk page.--KoberTalk 15:48, 24 September 2009 (UTC)
Excuse me, edit warring? That was the first revert I made in four days. Both you and HistoricWarrior on the other hand could probably be blocked for edit warring at this point. Please do not make unfounded accusations at me. LokiiT (talk) 15:54, 24 September 2009 (UTC)

Districts[edit]

Hi Kober! I have a question about the districts of Georgia. It seems that ka-wiki uses the word მუნიციპალიტეტი for them, instead of რაიონი. Is this an official change (and would you have a source for it), or just ka-wiki policy of some sort? Should the Finnish pages use მუნიციპალიტეტი as well?

Also, now that I'm at it, I could make an article request: it would be awsome to have a good and properly sourced article on Egrisi in the future (I made a very confusing stub on fi-wiki a while back and it's been annoying me). Well, and Kolkhis as well. And... a million topics, but maybe this is enough :) --Epiq (talk) 19:16, 20 September 2009 (UTC)

Armenians in Georgia[edit]

Hi. Might I ask you to have a look at Armenians in Tbilisi and Armenians in Samtskhe-Javakheti? I don't even know that we need these when we have Armenians in Georgia, but phrases like "The Armenian history and contribution to the capital city of Tbilisi is very significant. The Armenian history and contribution to the city of Tbilisi is very significant" (yes, twice in succession) or "As we see, Armenians made overwhelming majority in Samtskhe-Jaavakhk, Turk-meskhets 1/4 and Georgians - obvious minority... So, becomes obvious, that the slightest attempt to return Turkic ethnic minority in edge will provocated a tension situation, first of all for the Georgian population, who occupied former turks-meskhetzs settlements" evidently do not belong in an encyclopedia. Thank you. - BiruitorulTalk 04:46, 24 September 2009 (UTC)

Kober, I hope you are able to read this: «Страшную находку обнаружили местные жители в горах Абхазии на Черноморском побережье, там, где недавно шли бои с морским десантом, пытавшимся перерезать магистраль Очамчира — Сухуми... На дереве на проволоке висели куски человеческого тела... Установить национальность двух освежеванных людей так и не удалось — обезображенные трупы не имеют национальности.

Конец ХХ века ознаменовался появлением нового вида войн. И, пожалуй, национальные войны — самые беспощадные. Режут не только солдат. В тех же лесах в одной из деревушек нашли труп женщины. Она была беременна. Ее изнасиловали и выпотрошили» (Московский комсомолец, 1993, 29 июля, с. 3) —nothing about the ethnicity of the victims.

«Обстрелы Сухуми, пожалуй, — самое отвратительное во всей этой войне» (Московский комсомолец, 1993, 29 июля, с. 3) — nothing about Russians.

Number of Abkhaz in Turkey according to Chirikba[edit]

Certainly. His exact wording is

The biggest Abkhaz community is in Turkey, but the exact numbers there are not available (estimates range from 100,000 to 500,000).

I think that the exact numbers are hard to establish, but to me, 500,000 doesn't seem that implausible as an upper bound.sephia karta |di mi 21:18, 9 January 2010 (UTC)

David VI of Georgia[edit]

Hello, Kober !

I am AlexandreIV. I am a contributor in the French Wikipedia and I am currently writing about the king Michael of Imereti (in French,Michel d'Iméréthie). I found a huge problem in identifying Michael's mother. I believe Vakhusht Bagrationi names a daughter of the emperor Michael VIII. On the other hand, the French byzantinologist Charles Lebeau changes her into an illegitimate daughter of the wife of the same emperor. In the Internet (Foundation for Medieval Genealogy,Royal Ark), there are many other theories, but you put Tamar Amanelisdze. I have no traces of her existence anywhere else. So what are your sources?

Respectfully, --97.66.128.162 (talk) 23:35, 10 January 2010 (UTC)

P.S. : if you wish to answer me, please do it here.

quote[edit]

The former resident of Ochamchire district, Leila Goletiani, who was taken prisoner by Abkhaz separatists, gave the following account of her captivity to the Russian film director Andrei Nekrasov:

I lived in Abkhazia 15 years ago, in the small town of Akhaldaba, Ochamchire district. Abkhaz attacked our village on September 16th, 1993. It was impossible to hide anywhere from the bullets which rained down on us…. The Russian Cossacks approached me and started to beat me. One of these Russian Cossacks approched me and asked me if I have ever had sex with the Cossack. He grabbed me and tried to rip off my close, after which I started to resist but they hit my head on the ground and started to beat me with AK47 butts. While hitting me all over my body, they yelled: We will kill you, but we will do so slowly. Then they took me to an Abkhaz school where they kept Georgian civilian prisoners. There were only Georgians there, women, children and men. There were some women who were pregnant, and children of different ages. The Battalion of Cossacks kept coming there regularly. They took young girls and children and raped them systematically. These were children aged 10, 12, 13, and 14. They especially targeted children. One of the girls there was 8 years old. She was taken by different groups of these Cossacks and was raped numerous times. I don’t know how she managed to survive after so many rapes but I don’t want to mention her name in order to protect her identity. They also took women but later they started to take elderly women. They raped these elderly women in the way which I don’t want to go into detail…it was horrific.[1]

I just saw the video on Facebook. What a coincidence... Anyways, thanks for your help withMichael of Imereti. I'm about to propose the French version as a Good Article. I think you're doing a great job on Wikipedia about Georgia. :))) --97.66.128.162 (talk) 23:31, 12 January 2010 (UTC)

  • "Replaceable" in the sense of our non-free content rules includes "image could be created"; it's not restricted to cases where a possible replacement already has been created and is easily available. This means that photographs of living people and photographs of buildings, with very few exceptions, are generally out as a matter of course.
  • I find no evidence that photographs published by the Georgian government, or by the Georgian church, are "public domain" automatically, as you seemed to claim on a number of image pages. There doesn't seem to be anything like "PD-USGov" in Georgia. According to Georgian copyright law[7], unless I'm missing something, only "official documents (laws, decisions of courts, other texts of administrative and normative character)" are exempted from copyright; this doesn't include photographs included on websites.

Tskhinvali[edit]

Hello, Kober !

It's AlexandreIV, again. Thanks to your help, the French version of Michael of Imereti became a Good Article, so I want to thank you once again.

My newest work is about Tskhinvali. I am actually working hard on it, because of some contributors who are trying to convince me that the city has always been Ossetian historically. But I won' bother you with the details. My reason to contact you again is because of an information that you have put in the English version of the article. You said that in 1910, there were 11% of Ossetians in Tskhinvali. However, I can't find any 1910 census in any of my sources and the other contributors are now asking me to source what I translated from you. Can you help me?

Thanks for these important sources and the map that'll be very important for the article. But I'm still looking for the 1910 census. Is there any, or is it just an approximation?

Russian Vandalism[edit]

Dear Mr Kober, ones again Russian nationalist element on Wiki are vandalizing Georgia related articles. This time it is the main article on the country [9] This use blatantly removed the image of a girl because it does not suit his nationalist Russian POV. He floods the discussion section with suggestions to include details from the war (its redundant because the details are already outlines in so called "South Ossetia" was article) and include "Ossetian posters" in the Georgia article. I have restored only one image of a girl in that section and did not restore the other photo. I left his two photos of Condy and burned out Georgian tank as a compromise. But im sure he will continue attacks on the article. Therefore, we need to address this issue to administrators who will take action and limit his vandalism.

  1. Go to the media description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

Language of Abkhaz and Ossetes; I am not a Georgia-phobe, but this is an issue that needs to be addressed[edit]

Feh, after being a "Russophobe" for a long period (History of Chechnya, Caucasian Wars and various other pages had been completely made by Russian extremist nationalists who thought taht Caucasian people as a whole were "backwards bandits perpetually lacking civilization", and I fixed it up considerably), I am now a Georgia-phobe in your mind.

No, I do not dislike Georgia or fear it in anyway, and for your information, I believe firmly that Georgia has the moral high ground against the Russian puppet state in Tskhinvali. I don't think the Ossetes lack the right to self-determination (all peoples have that right, although the Ossetes seem to forget that the Ingush do as they killed them and forced them to leave East Prigorodny, a historical Ingush territory) but what they have basically done is helped Russia annex a chunk of land. That is not self-determination it is aiding Russian imperialism. Furthermore, there are other factors. Unlike Chechnya's conflict with Russia or things like that, South Ossetia was once inhabited mainly by Georgians (assimilated Dvals), or so most people think; I dont' want to take sides on that fact, but if South Ossetia wants "self-determination" it must be true self-determination (outside Russia). Alas, people will see that I posted this and will waste no time in labeling me a Russophobe. I am not a Russophobe (I am not an Ossetophobe either). As for people who may want to use Kober's talk page against me- If I said that if France wanted Algeria back, that would make it imperialist, that would make me a Francophobe in their minds apparently. I am not an anything -phobe for saying that Russia wanting lands that are not historically inhabited by Russians is imperialism, because there's no other correct way to say it. They were obtained by Russia as colonies at the time. In fact Russia acknowledged them as colonies itself, using the very word, at the time. That Russians following Alexander Dugin's logic have imperialist views is not an opinion, it is a fact, confirmed by Russia itself.

However, the issue of whether the Abkhaz and Ossetes actually speak Georgian is existent.

There's a common thing, nowadays, that on Wikipedia, political boundaries seem to equal language in the minds of editors. However, only if the people universally or almost universally speak a language, or if it is their historical language, is it their language. Thus, the languages of the Kists, for example, are Chechen and Georgian, because those are the languages that Kists have historically used and/or speak nowadays. The Abkhaz, however, do not speak Georgian universally, and far from it. I believe we both know this. With Russian being the lingua franga, the Abkhaz saw no point in teaching Georgian in school, and of course the schools were no doubt run ultimately from the central Tsarist and Soviet governments (i.e. Russian ones which wanted to advance Russification at the expense of all else). It is well-known, that nowadays, except for Abkhaz living outside Abkhazia (and maybe the ones in historically Mingrelian Eastern "Abkhazia"), they don't speak Georgian. I don't really know about the Ossetes perhaps they do, but I know pretty well that the Abkhaz don't. Perhaps they should, but they don't.

It really shouldn't be viewed as a political issue, and quite frankly I'd be fine with deleting off Russian and Turkish as well (and will do so with your permission), since they aren't historical languages of hte Abkhaz, and they dont' universally speak either (they speak Turkish in Turkey, and some of them speak Russian in Abkhazia). And besides... English is not the language of Danes, even though they all speak it now.

Just please don't label me an anything-phobe for expressing my opinions, which are based on facts (I must be a Russophobe if I state that Russia killed many children, even though I know- and we all know (Russians included)- that it did...). It gets very tiresome.--Yalens (talk) 17:37, 1 August 2010 (UTC)

I am tired. Did you not say that in the edit summary? I will check. In any case, I am sorry to take up your time wiht my long blurb, it was completely unnecessary. It's my general viewpoint that language should be reserved for what is the language of the people- i.e., there are plenty of Germans living in the US who speak English, but that does not make English a language of the German people, for example. That's pretty much the line. --Yalens (talk) 19:37, 1 August 2010 (UTC)
That's not really what I meant. What I meant is that there are large numbers of Germans outside of Germany who speak English natively- as is the case with Abkhaz and Ossetes living outside of Abkhazia and South Ossetia (or North Ossetia, for that matter) and thus speak Georgian. But it is by no means the whole ethnic group. German Americans says English and German. But Germans says German. --Yalens (talk) 20:37, 1 August 2010 (UTC)

Leonti Mroveli[edit]

Well, we never really finished with the language thing but its not important either. I actually wanted to ask for your help, as a knowledgeable Georgian... is there anywhere where I can find an English translation of Mroveli's works? Because it just felt funny to me, to keep referring to them through other books, so I was wondering...--Yalens (talk) 19:45, 14 August 2010 (UTC)

1907 Tiflis bank robbery article[edit]

Thanks for helping to make the 1907 Tiflis bank robbery article better. Any help you can provide is most appreciated. I am hoping to get this article up to Featured Article status. Let me know if you want to help out with that. Also, are you currently living in Tblisi? If so, maybe you can find out more information about this incident. The part on Kamo's current gravesite and the location of his previous monument were very odd to me so any clarity you could bring to that issue would be greatly appreciated.

Georgian names[edit]

Hello Kober. Could you please add titles in Georgian to the articles State Ministry for Reintegration (Georgia) and State Ministry for Euro-Atlantic Integration (Georgia)? Thanks!Tuscumbia (talk) 17:00, 16 February 2011 (UTC)

Done. Thanks, --KoberTalk 18:09, 17 February 2011 (UTC)
Thanks Kober. Could you please upload photos of cabinet ministers of Georgia if you have the sources, of course? I'll be creating articles on ministries and ministers in the upcoming weeks.Tuscumbia (talk) 22:04, 17 February 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for the note, Kober. Can you also take a look at Borjomi (water) article and see if you have any sources to expand it? I've nominated it for DYK here. I'd appreciate your input. Tuscumbia(talk) 16:55, 21 February 2011 (UTC)

Notable Mingrelians[edit]

Dear Kober. As you may see here, user Maunus and Arguni are working hand in hand to push their propaganda. I will try to look for sources to counter this nonsense and please provide me any that you may have.--ComtesseDeMingrélie 14:53, 18 March 2011 (UTC)

If they are Mingrelian, then pls prove it with sources which clearly describe their identity! I see they have Mingrelian surnames but this doesn't mean that they are Mingrelian. Furthermore, don't call other users as propagandist. If you want to see respect from other users, as first respect to them. Arguni (talk) 16:21, 18 March 2011 (UTC)
If you really cared about proving their identity you would find the sources yourself instead of complaining and marking-up the whole page with citation notices. Now I found what I needed myself so no help is needed.--ComtesseDeMingrélie 18:12, 18 March 2011 (UTC)


Good job, Comtesse. --KoberTalk 14:01, 19 March 2011 (UTC)

More Georgian names[edit]

Hi Kober. Any way you could help me with adding Georgian names to these articles:

I appreciate your help in advance. Tuscumbia (talk) 15:44, 18 March 2011 (UTC)

Thanks Kober! Could also help me out withthe issue on United Transport Administration? Perhaps, you could look at Georgian sources and see if you can clarify it for me.Tuscumbia (talk) 14:01, 21 March 2011 (UTC)
Thank you! Tuscumbia (talk) 19:36, 21 March 2011 (UTC)
Hi Kober, sorry to bother you. A few more for additions in Georgian:
Thank you in advance! Tuscumbia(talk) 17:50, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
Done! :) --KoberTalk 18:26, 29 March 2011 (UTC)

You are welcome. :) --KoberTalk 18:33, 29 March 2011 (UTC)

───────────────────────── Again, thanks for helping out, Kober. Could I ask you to add Georgian names to a few more:

Thank you! Tuscumbia (talk) 14:42, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

Gamarjoba Kober. If you don't mind, could you please add Georgian name to Ministry of Culture and Monument Protection (Georgia) and, check and add transliteration of the Georgian name toMinistry of Justice (Georgia)? Thank you! Tuscumbia (talk) 19:19, 4 April 2011 (UTC)
Done! Great job! :) Best regards, KoberTalk 16:44, 5 April 2011 (UTC)
Thanks Kober. One more: Bakur Kvezereli. I really hope I don't annoy you with these requests... Tuscumbia (talk) 15:38, 6 April 2011 (UTC)
Definitely not.:)) Always glad to help. --KoberTalk04:10, 8 April 2011 (UTC)
Thank you! Much appreciated. I'll keep 'em coming then :) Tuscumbia (talk) 18:25, 11 April 2011 (UTC)
Hi Kober, I think I put the correct Georgian name in Ministry of Defense (Georgia)‎. Please check and if correct, please also add the transliteration as you have in other articles I created. Additionally, it would be great if you added more information from Georgian sources :) Thanks for your help! Tuscumbia(talk) 14:28, 12 April 2011 (UTC)
Hi! Thanks for the article. :) I'll try to add some details from Georgian sources.--KoberTalk 17:10, 12 April 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for improving the article and adding list of ministers. Do you think you can also add the ministers serving during existence of Democratic Republic of Georgia, and commissars during existence of Georgian SSR, if any? Tuscumbia (talk) 17:53, 12 April 2011 (UTC)
Will try. :) KoberTalk 17:55, 12 April 2011 (UTC)
One more Kober, but this time unrelated to government articles :) Please check the Georgian name and transliterate: Akaki Tsereteli State University. I'd also appreciate if you could add data on the faculty because the website freezes when I go to faculty sections in the English version. Tuscumbia (talk) 18:54, 12 April 2011 (UTC)

───────────────────────── Hi Kober, two more (these are last ones I created on Cabinet of Georgia):

If possible, please add Georgian names and their transliteration. Thank you Kober!Tuscumbia (talk) 16:04, 14 April 2011 (UTC)

Done. Cheers :) --KoberTalk 15:58, 15 April 2011 (UTC)
Thanks a lot! Tuscumbia (talk) 16:41, 15 April 2011 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Kober, thanks a mil for your Award! :) When or if you have time, could you please find historical data on the ministries of Georgia in Georgian, if they exist, and add them to the articles? The English versions of the government websites don't have any data on when a particular ministry was created, under what order of the parliament, etc. It could be really useful for readers. So far I've added anything that could be found in English. Thank you!Tuscumbia (talk) 17:24, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

Aram-van[edit]

I have effectively banned Aram-van (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · logs · edit filter log · block user · block log), who was quite possibly a sockpuppet of a banned user anyway (I shall refrain from explaining why I think this, per WP:BEANS). In any case, if you see him sock, as I'm quite nearly sure he will do, please let me know, and I will block the sock. Magog the Ogre (talk) 17:49, 26 March 2011 (UTC)
