Hi Alessandro,

My name is Pantazis Houlis and I live in Kastellorizo. I am not sure of the purpose of deleting the link To me it seems you have not navigated yourself enough into it to appreciate its content.

For example:

1. It contains valuable information (especially the Greek version) regarding the origin of the name, including photos of the covers of extremely important books. 2. Direct links towards (extremely difficult to find for a normal user) to important old videos (1929 and 1943). 3. Direct communication with the seismic spot at the island (it was added recently). 4. Recent updates of the island's important phones for anyone to use (not just for "tourists"). 5. Many maps, including a huge old one (for archive purposes) which was directly donated by the Peiraius Kastellorizian Association and we have been given permission to put it online. More old maps to be added, as we have not scanned them yet.

Apart from this, it contains a lot more useful information, and I do not understand the scope of branding this site as "touristic", because it has absolutely no commercial gain in anyway (no paid advertisements).

Please explain to me this action. I believe you are using your status to have your way, and this is not fair for the island.

Removal Link from Hagia Sophia and Bosphorus Page[edit]

Dear Alessandro57,

I have just received the notice of external link removal about Hagia Sophia and Bosphorus Pages with the reason of violation.

However seeking your kind review of pages that linked has pure content and has no commercial use.

Respecting your kind judgement related with rules of wikipedia.

Armenia discussion[edit]

Hi Alessandro57,

You undid my removal of the image

Seizure of Yerevan fortress by Russian troops in 1827 by Franz Roubaud.

. I explained the reason in my original post. This image is the same as on Yerevan site (capital of Armenia) and on Erivan fortress site (the old Yerevan). Note that no other picture repetitively appears in all those sites. I think the administrators should watch for these instances and prevent such cases themselves.

Regards, Cyber-Policeman (talk) 17:48, 11 July 2014 (UTC)


Thanks, I just did what you suggested on Armenia talk page. Cyber-Policeman (talk) 21:33, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

Good day[edit]

Allow me to explain you a most simple concept: you (neither I, or anyone else, for that matter) can decide, establish and publish, which number is enough to come under the definition of many.

Perhaps you will fail to understand, so I'll use a most simple example: I may have eaten 20 candies, but you cannot decide they're many. At least, not on an encyclopedia! ( ;) ). How dare you judge on my indulgence in the joys of sugar?! 20 candies may not be many for my stomach. They may be few.

So I demand you at once to quit this disgusting hatemongering. State the number of these alleged camps, and source your statement. That many will disappear, till then. -- (talk) 16:12, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

Country map[edit]

Hello, I think the map reversal from wiki's administrators should have been done few days ago when the long-standing dark green/light green map was replaced with dark green only. Based on wiki experience, a country map shows in light green uncontrolled territories (e.g., Georgia, Pakistan, Ukraine). Why Azerbaijan is an exception? Thanks, (talk) 15:21, 16 July 2014 (UTC)

Country map[edit]

Hi, why did you revert the map of Azerbaijan with uncontrolled territories to the one without? All countries on wikipedia with uncontrolled territories are shown in dark-light greet palette. It was the case with this country too until few days ago. Do I miss something here? Cyber-Policeman (talk) 19:00, 16 July 2014 (UTC)

Hi Alessandro,

Please see additional information on the Azerbaijan talk page regarding the map issue. Note that the map of Azerbaijan was shown in light green/dark green colors for more than 95% of time since November 2012 already based on discussion on the talk page. It was reverted to a single color format without following a proper procedure.

Anonymous troublemaker at[edit]

Hello Alex- I see from the talk page of the above IP that you have also run into trouble with this person. Have you brought it to anyone else's attention? I'm considering putting something on Wikipedia:Administrators'_noticeboard/Incidents. I'll watch here for your answer. Eric talk 23:18, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

Hi again- FYI, I reported the IP on ANI and at Wikipedia:Administrator_intervention_against_vandalism#User-reported. Eric talk 23:48, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
Hallo Eric, and thanks for writing! Yes, I agree, I was also going to report him. Anyway, I think that he is a typical case of disruptive Editor, so he belongs to ANI. We will see there :-) Alex2006 (talk) 04:36, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for your input at the ANI, Alex. I think it might be helpful to change lager to camps so more anglophone readers will understand, and to change the South Tyrol link to the article's history. But I wanted to check with you first before editing your comment. What do you think? Eric talk 12:57, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
I agree with you about both points,Eric. In Italy and Switzerland, where I live, "lager" is understood quite well, but this is for sure not the case in the anglophone world... Alex2006 (talk) 13:27, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

You're supposed to assume good faith, Alex[edit]

Hi Alex. I just read a comment you wrote in the talk page of user Kwamikagami:

Turkish Language

Good morning, actually on Talk:Turkish language there is a discussion of the same time that you are having about Azeri language. I would be glad if you could bring there your opinion. The problem there does not seem to be big one at first glance, but this edit is part of an agenda, pursued on different articles, to "Europize" different languages and peoples. Alex2006 (talk) 09:22, 19 July 2014 (UTC)


First of all, you're supposed to assume good faith with regard to the contributions of all editors, not the least of whom are the well-established editors of Wikipedia. Your assumption that my edits are part of an agenda to "Europeanize" different languages and peoples is a false accusation on your part. Furthermore, all edits I have made to these articles are indisputably factual. I was rather disappointed to read that comment from you.

Last but not least, if you want to invite another editor for a third opinion, then by all means do so. But the fact you chose this specific editor -- who was involved in disruptive editing, deliberate removal of content and abuse of tags vandalism -- could only be seen as an attempt to gain consensus via canvassing. By all means, Wikipedia allows us to invite other editors to offer their views, but bringing this to the attention of user Kwamikagami, who was edit-warring and refusing to discuss his content dispute with me in another article talk page just recently, is unfortunately a form of canvassing.

Have a good night. :-) --Nadia (Kutsuit) (talk) 21:26, 20 July 2014 (UTC)

Hallo Kutsuit,

sorry, I don`t agree: first of all, I think that you are doing your edits in perfect good faith: you are just trying to let pass your POV that some countries (Azerbaijan, Turkey) are a little bit more European than they are in reality, and you really believe it: there are several edits of you that points all in this direction. Now, at the moment there are three editors who all have the same problem with you, in three different article, about the same issue. This means that we have here a general problem, and I find just normal to discuss this problem all together. Canvassing, means to invite friendly, uninvolved users to support your views, but this is not the case: moreover, in that case I would have invited him to join this discussion with a mail, instead of writing a message just below a message of you, where you were waiting for an answer: this shows full transparency. Good morning :-) Alex2006 (talk) 02:16, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

Sorry Alex, but you weren't assuming good faith regarding my edits, otherwise you wouldn't have falsely accused me of being part of an agenda to "Europeanize" certain languages and peoples. All of my edits on Wikipedia have attempted to make the articles more neutral, informative and encyclopedic. My edits have made articles more consistent. The inconsistency of including the likes of Azerbaijan and Turkey in some Europe-related articles (but not in others) had to be corrected. I've made articles more consistent and more neutral, and expanded the definitions of certain terms with reliable sources. Therefore, if there are people who have a problem with me stating the facts then that's their problem. All information, concerning countries at the crossroads of Europe and Asia, that I've added to Europe-related articles have been cited by reliable sources, therefore for you to suggest to another member that I have an agenda constitutes a personal attack. Good morning to you too. ;-) --Nadia (Kutsuit) (talk) 09:25, 22 July 2014 (UTC)
Last but not least, I'm not trying to push any POV. That also constitutes not assuming good faith on your part, unfortunately. If you must know, there are many things I disagree with, but it doesn't stop me from trying to make articles encyclopedic. For instance, there's a particular political party that I downright despise, but every time a disputable edit is made to its page, I have to remove it because it's denied by the party, even if I believe what the edit says. I'm not here to push a POV. I'm here to classify things correctly and neutrally. --Nadia (Kutsuit) (talk) 09:33, 22 July 2014 (UTC)

You might want to take a look at this[edit]

User talk: - you reverted most of his edits, but see the link I added at the bottom and Wikipedia:Requests for arbitration/Macedonia 2 - as you can see, besides the fact that he was clearly deliberately using misleading edit summaries, those edits were in violation of the ArbCom decision. I'm guessing it might be a blocked editor but I could be wrong. Dougweller (talk) 12:24, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

I spotted another form of canvassing on your part, Alex[edit]

Alex, not only have you engaged in canvassing with user Kwamikagami, as mentioned in the posts above, but I have also seen you attempt another form of canvassing with user Psychonaut.

Before you deny it, here are the problems with your messages to these users:

1. With Kwamikagami, you have used a tactic known as "campaigning", by falsely suggesting to the user that I have an agenda to Europeanize certain languages and peoples.

2. With Psychonaut, you have used a tactic known as "vote-stacking", since you are already aware of the dispute I have with the said user in another topic, and therefore are fully aware of what opinions he may hold when it comes to disputes that I'm involved with.

This is the message you sent to Psychonaut:

Turkish Language

Good morning, actually on Talk:Turkish language there is a discussion related to your discussion about Turkish in Languages of Europe. I would be glad if you could bring there your opinion. Alex2006 (talk) 09:15, 19 July 2014 (UTC)

I will say it one last time, Alex. If you try to game the system by attracting consensus again, I'll have you reported to the admins. You have actually rendered your contribution in the Languages of Europe talk page irrelevant by resorting to these tactics. --Nadia (Kutsuit) (talk) 12:41, 22 July 2014 (UTC)

Kutsuit, Alex's contacting me was probably not canvassing, because according to the guideline, contacting "editors who have participated in previous discussions on the same topic (or closely related topics)" with a neutrally worded invitation to contribute is expressly permited as a form of appropriate notification. You and I were already engaging in a discussion of European vs. Asian Turkish speakers elsewhere. As long as Alex wasn't selective in contacting me (to the exclusion of other people involved in other discussions on the same topic), this was not problematic. It certainly wasn't votestacking as I never took him up on his offer to participate.
This is the second or third time in just a few minutes where you've issued bogus warnings to users based on imagined rule violations. (In one recent example, you told me that I broke a rule about issuing user talk templates. However, the "rule" you linked to is merely an essay, and in any case I never issued any user talk template to you.) Please cool it with the accusations. —Psychonaut (talk) 13:02, 22 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks a lot for your post Psychonaut. As I explained to Kuitsuit, I invited you and another user to discuss this issue together since all three of us were involved in discussions on very similar subjects at the same time with her on three different articles. Moreover, if someone with some experience wants really to canvass, he/she uses the email, and not the talk page. :-) Alex2006 (talk) 13:14, 22 July 2014 (UTC)

Speaking of "don't shoot yourself in the foot"...[edit]

Speaking of Wikipedia:Don't shoot yourself in the foot, I strongly advise you to take caution before escalating matters by bringing administrators into our disputes. The last thing you want to do is let the administrators know about your canvassing (i.e. campaigning and vote-stacking), edit-warring, deliberate removal of sourced content (i.e. blanking/illegitimate vandalism), stalking, false accusations (of me having an agenda and a POV to push), personal attacks, inability to assume good faith, etc. You've been involved in all of these things and perhaps more, therefore my advice to you is to settle the disputes you have with me in a civilized way. If you want to escalate the issue, it's your call, but trust me it wont end good for either of us. If, however, you want to settle your disputes properly -- and trust me, I've settled disputes with so many editors before you -- then I suggest you stop your personal attacks, false accusations, canvassing and removal of sourced content, and look for a compromise. That's my final suggestion. --Nadia (Kutsuit) (talk) 09:00, 24 July 2014 (UTC)

Revert on Alitalia[edit]

Hi Alessandro57,

You reverted my good faith edit to the Alitalia article by referring to "consensus". But you did not refer to where that "consensus" is to be found (and as I am not part of that consensus, it can hardly any longer be called a consensus; at most a previous / past consensus). I can find nothing about it on the talk page of Alitalia, neither on the talk page of the Carpatair article. It do not find it okay to refer to a claimed consensus without linking to it, especially if it is not even part of the current article's talk page. This is Wikipedia, so references and fact checking is crucial; this also includes any claims of "consensus".

Furthermore, you did not move the information to the Carpatair article, even though you said it belonged there. So the result was that you just deleted the information instead of moving it to where you believe is the right place for it. I do not find that okay either. If you don't have the time to finish the job, don't start it. In the future, add the information to what you believe is the right place first, and then delete it from what you believe to be the wrong place if you still have time and energy left to do it.

Etymology and food history[edit]

The name of a food can be a useful hint about the food's origin, but it is just one piece of evidence among others. And of course the word history has to be studied just as critically as anything else. The sources given in the dolma article for a supposed origin as Armenian toli 'leaf' are not very strong, and not very convincing. Where is the documentation? Why would toli become tolma? For another example of a dubious and forced food etymology, see the supposed Coptic etymology for falafel (and the corresponding discussion on the Talk page). For that matter, there are Greeks who refuse to believe that γύρος is a calque of Turkish döner -- but it used to be called ντονέρ in Greek! --Macrakis (talk) 02:54, 21 August 2014 (UTC)


3RR bloock for the other editor, but you seem to be at 3RR also, so I'd leave it for a while. Start a discussion on the talk page if you haven't already.

You reverted my edit in the article about Italy. Your motivation: the comparison is among cities, and "urban area" is not a precise concept. Granted. Neither is "city", which a typical ill-defined concept. Italy's capital is the most populous commune in Italy, not the biggest metropolitan area. It is also larger than Paris (the commune) or the city of London or any of the boroughs of New York City, by the number of its inhabitants. Yet it would be ridiculous to say, or imply, that Rome is larger than London or Paris or New York. Administrative divisions do not catch the social and economic phenomenon of an urban area. Rome has many distinctions, but it's not the most populous metropolitan area in Italy; Milan and Naples are larger.

One little question. Why is it significant to mention the size of the commune but not of its metropolitan area?

However, I won't revert the edit. I'm in no mood to start an edit war. But I do suggest that you think about it and see if your reversal was justified. Pan Brerus (talk) 22:48, 7 September 2014 (UTC)

Hi Alessandro,

thank you for your message. I am not sure which discussion thread you are referring to. The province is however triple-language in its status, therefore it is correct to use at least the original German name and the Italian version of it. Thank you. Gryffindor (talk) 09:42, 9 September 2014 (UTC)

I have had a go at understanding how to edit Wikipedia. It is very complicated! Anyway, here is a suggested change to the Mussolini article:

Suggested text, replace:

Originally a member of the Italian Socialist Party (PSI), Mussolini was expelled from the PSI due to his opposition to the party's stance on neutrality in World War I.


In 1912 Mussolini was the leading member of the National Directorate of the Italian Socialist Party (PSI)[1]. Prior to 1914 he was a keen supporter of the Socialist International, starting the series of meetings in Switzerland[2] that organised the communist revolutions and insurrections that swept through Europe from 1917. Mussolini was expelled from the PSI due to his opposition to the party's stance on neutrality in World War I.

As I know that you're interested in historical churches in Turkey and you're good in English I kindly ask you to copyedit the article Kızıl Kilise accordingly if you have time.

Italian Libya[edit]

Hello! I was doing some categorization work on Libyan history, and am rather puzzled by the existence of two articles and categories for what appears to be the same thing: Italian Libya and Italian North Africa. This is all the more puzzling since the distinction is not made in the Italian WP, as far as I can see. The issue had come up before at Talk:Italian Libya, but apparently nothing was done about it. Before merging the articles myself, I thought I'd better ask the only Italian I know around here ;) Constantine 19:49, 4 October 2014 (UTC)

Hello Constantine, and thanks for writing, and for your mail of last week! I just came back from three weeks vacation (Karpas, I Polis and Roma Urbs). The answer is easy: in North Africa Italy had in the beginning two colonies, Tripolitania and Cirenaica. After the conquest of Fezzan and the appointment of Balbo as general governor, in 1934 the territory was organized as a single colony, named Libya, a name which was "recovered" from Latin by Italian geographers to denominate the territory located between Tunisia and Egypt, and that was already used after 1911, but only in a geographic sense and never in an official form before 1934 (in the guide of Italy of 1929, the territory is still described in two chapters as Tripolitania and Cirenaica, with a small addition about Fezzan and the Sahara oases). The problem is that I never heard the denomination "Africa Settentrionale Italiana" or ASI before: I am afraid that this is a wiki-creation inspired by the much more famous (and official) Africa Orientale Italiana (AOI), a.k.a. "L`Impero", established in 1937. Cheers, Alex2006 (talk) 17:34, 6 October 2014 (UTC)
Hello again and welcome back (and I envy you your vacations)! I knew the administrative history, but is there really any point to having two different articles and categories? Would you not agree that one (for simplicity and clarity's sake at "Italian Libya") would suffice? Constantine 17:39, 6 October 2014 (UTC)
Of course, there is no need for two articles, and Libya is the right name, also because this is the common name in the history books. One can point out the administrative divisions in the "history" section. Alex2006 (talk) 17:45, 6 October 2014 (UTC)
Great. I'll go ahead and perform the merger then. Cheers, Constantine 17:48, 6 October 2014 (UTC)

St. Peter's Basilica[edit]

You are well known for edit wars alessandro57. Your reputation for creating discord and stacking users in your favor is well known. And though it is a rediculous thing- to keep changing a page and create an edit war which you started arbitrarily, I will submit for the sake of Wikipedia and the page itself. It is clear that you have a self serving agenda. 04:27, 21 February 2015 (UTC)

February 2015[edit]

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Please be particularly aware that Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

In particular, editors should be aware of the three-revert rule, which says that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. While edit warring on Wikipedia is not acceptable in any amount and can lead to a block, breaking the three-revert rule is very likely to lead to a block. If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. Cpetty9979 (talk) 04:30, 21 February 2015 (UTC)

I don't think I have anything useful to add here. Just note what UNESCO itself says about entries in the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity:

Takes note that lavash is shared by communities in the region and beyond, recalls that inscription on the Representative List does not imply exclusivity and encourages the submitting State when implementing safeguarding measures to remain conscious of the element’s larger cultural context in the region;
Recalls the importance of using vocabulary appropriate to the spirit of the Convention and avoiding expressions such as ‘unique’ and ‘original’.

That is, just because lavash is important in Armenian culture, doesn't mean it isn't important in other cultures, and it certainly says nothing about the origins of lavash (a subject about which I have no informed opinion). --Macrakis (talk) 14:30, 9 March 2015 (UTC)

Vatican City voting edit[edit]

Hi, You undid my edit on voting in the Vatican City and I don't think your reasoning is correct. Your reasoning: "Vatican is a state ruled by an absolute monarch, and neither men nor women have the right to vote". This is false. See the Wikipedia page for Vatican City, it states "The politics of Vatican City takes place in an absolute elective monarchy" the key word being elective. The Cardinals do vote and elect the head of state, and Cardinals can only be men under the structure of the Catholic Church. Citizenship here is not the issue, since citizenship in Vatican City is not required for choosing it's head of state. The issue is that only men are allowed to vote in the election, while women are specifically banned. It is important to consider the Vatican City State as an internationally recognized independent state here. I would consider moving my edit to a different place in the page, but I do think it is important information that needs to be in the article and have already considered my placement carefully. I will wait for your response before reverting my edit. I appreciate you leaving your reason on my talk page so we can discuss what is best. -Jon — Preceding unsigned comment added by Flessner89 (talkcontribs) 20:44, 18 March 2015 (UTC)

Istanbul Pogrom[edit]

Dear Alessandro57 I am writing writing to you because I don't know how to access the talk page of the article on Uskudar, my only wish is that you remove the sender claim that women were raped. Because I was born in 1950 and have lived those terrible days. Yes Christians and Jews were attacked, their shops were lotted. But not their private homes. No women was raped. If the contributor insists o this claim he should please provide a reference. The only reference he is providing is the following:

Where in the book by The Mechanism of Catastrophe: The Turkish Pogrom of September 6-7, 1955, and the Destruction of the Greek Community of Istanbul, is there a mention of raped women? The contributor has an agenda. Just check his other contributions and you will see the pattern.

Hi, Alex, how are you?

Do feel free to ping me if you find yourself in difficulty with similarly little-used words.

Apropos of translation: I noticed that although Santi Simone e Giuda, Rome‎, is apparently translated fairly closely from the it.wp page, there isn't any attribution of the source on the talk page. So I wondered if you'd simply forgotten, or if you just didn't know that the source for an interwiki translation needs to be acknowledged? The {{translated page}} template is handy for this.

The reason why I'm writing you is because I saw you made significant contributions to Italian-related pages and are of Italian ancestry yourself. I was wondering whether you could ask me with this historical question regarding Roma. Do you perhaps know what Empire or Kingdom ruled Rome in 1688?

Metropolitan cities[edit]

Ciao Alessandro, ho visto che su wiki sia italiano che inglese esistono le voci "area metropolitan di"; pensavo che siano di maggior valore informative I numeri relative all'arrea metropolitan piuttosto che quelli della città metropolitan, che comprendono le intere vecchie province con comuni spesso oltre I 50 km dal capoluogo. Al limite si potrebbero fare due colonne, una per "area" e una per "city". Che ne pensi? Mauro — Preceding unsigned comment added by Robur.q (talkcontribs) 12:17, 1 June 2015 (UTC)

I will answer on the Talk page of Italy. Alex2006 (talk) 12:46, 1 June 2015 (UTC)

I partially agree with you: it is true that the metropolitan cities are the only official administrative subdivision, but they are quite inaccurate to describe the characteristics of a metropolitan area and they are misleading. For example the Commune of Bardonecchia is 85 km to Turin so it can not definitely considerated part of the metropolitan area of Turin as identified by the Osservatorio Demografico Territoriale del Piemonte of IRES Piemonte that is a an institution of the Regione . The metropolitan area has not an administrative signification, but has a demographic, social and economic significance. As the metropolitan city of Cagliari, actually there is only a bill that the Sardinian Regional Governament has presented few weeks ago. But the bill has to be discussed and (perhaps) approved by the Regional Parliament (the Consiglio Regionale).
