Hi, i am wondering if i can post the tree of a decent middle class family of artists and professionals. Please let know if there are limitations, Adrian Comollo (talk) 15:05, 21 March 2008 (UTC)

Pornography in the United States GA Sweeps Review: On Hold

As part of the WikiProject Good Articles, we're doing sweeps to go over all of the current GAs and see if they still meet the GA criteria and I'm specifically going over all of the "Culture and Society" articles. I have reviewed Pornography in the United States and believe the article currently meets the majority of the criteria and should remain listed as a Good article. In reviewing the article, I have found there are several issues that need to be addressed, and I'll leave the article on hold for seven days for them to be fixed. I have left this message on your talk page since you have significantly edited the article (based on using this article history tool). Please consider helping address the several points that I listed on the talk page of the article, which shouldn't take too long to fix with the assistance of multiple editors. I have also left messages on the talk pages of a few other editors and a related WikiProject to spread the workload around some. If you have any questions, let me know on my talk page and I'll get back to you as soon as I can. --Nehrams2020 (talk) 03:22, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

People want to delete this article, Siege of Gordium, because virtualy no sources exist for the event. Please go to the deletion page of this article, and explain to them why it should not be delete, because I checked and found out. You added Siege of Gordium to Alexanders battles template (therefore you are the original creator), I created it by adding a sentence from the unsourced sentence in the Gordium article. If you have any sources for this siege, now is the time to display them on the article, I tried to find sources, and I could not find any either, thank you.--Ariobarza (talk) 00:20, 17 November 2008 (UTC)Ariobarza talk

Anderson maps

Hi Brand, given this award you gave to Adil Baguirov, especially for the talkpage of NK, I think it is safe to affirm you find what he wrote in the talkpage which was dismissing Armenian history and turning anything Armenian as Albanian, worthy of an award. If you are so concerned with accuracy, you'll stop using dubious sources like using the Azerbaijan Soviet Encyclopedia to add claims on Wikipedia which are contradicted by official sources. Here for instance, not only you are at fault in translating the title of the source used as if it was published in English but you even claim him having received the Jawaharlal Nehru Award in 1969. From the awards official site in 1969 it was Mother Teresa who received it. Obviously this was fixed, but reverted by Grandmaster who claimed that maybe there was more than one awardee, when there is indeed only one awardee per year. This is one example of the inaccuracies you perpetuate on Wikipedia and I just had the occasion to tell it to you to show you that you are in no position to question the credibility of the sources when you seem to use worst quality but given the amount of articles you create about Azerbaijan it is almost impossible to follow them and correct them.

As for that quote from Anderson, this is what Britannica writes: A few native Armenian rulers survived for a time in the Kiurikian kingdom of Lori, the Siuniqian kingdom of Baghq or Kapan, and the principates of Khachen (Artzakh) and Sasun. The New Encyclopedia Britannica by Robert MacHenry, Encyclopaedia Britannica, inc, Robert MacHenry, (1993) p.761. Those are still there, word by word in the 2008 Ultimate edition DVD. Several other sources have been provided. Grandmaster is actually not denying this, but is claiming that the Meliks were not totally independent to justify its removal. The map is therefore not inaccurate for the purpose of its use, which is to show where those principalities were. All this debate is a total waste of time. - Fedayee (talk) 23:28, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

It's not about turning anything Armenian to Albanian, but what is actually Albanian to Albanian. Show me other inaccuracies if you think I prefer indiscriminate refs. It's apparently a rare case but the source can't be challenged because it's not English. The source was translated to show which reference was actually used and I see no fault here. All in all I would rather give credit first to ASE and then to Andersen. Though I didn't question the existence of principalities, even Meowy confirmed some inaccuracies in map, so we can't name it flawless. As such it's to be removed and we had a long thread indeed. --Brand спойт 13:15, 28 November 2008 (UTC)

Multiple reverts

Nuvola apps important.svg You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war. Note that the three-revert rule prohibits making more than three reversions on a single page within a 24 hour period. Additionally, users who perform a large number of reversions in content disputes may be blocked for edit warring, even if they do not technically violate the three-revert rule. If you continue, you may be blocked from editing. Please do not repeatedly revert edits, but use the talk page to work towards wording and content that gains a consensus among editors. If necessary, pursue dispute resolution.

Hi Brandmeister. I ask you to be more careful with reverting articles. I think you made recently some reverts which were not justified. In the NK article you twice ([2][3]) removed information which was based on reliable sources and which you or any other user never contented (even after you moved them, at least you should bring up your consideration to the talk page). Then you reverted my edits in the Artsakh article ([4]), however I participated in the discussion about the ancient population of Artsakh beginning from August 2008 and my last edits were explained at great length. You never participated in that discussion, yet you revert my edits without even mentioning why you don't agree with them, instead you should first familiarize yourself with the relevant discussions, then explain your opinion in the talkpage and wait for the opinion of other users. Just now you reverted my last edits in the Panah Ali Khan article with the edit summary let's discuss first, and again you don't clarify why and what you think needs discussion. Such obscure reverts are and result in edit warring and they are harmful and do not combine to build consensus. Thank you for you understanding. --Vacio (talk) 16:44, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

your edits

Can you clarify please why you delete every mention of republic of Azerbaijan's linkage to Iran or Iranian culture? I do not understand anti-Iranism among the team of editors from the republic of Azerbaijan.--Babakexorramdin (talk) 14:41, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

Generally because the linkage is dubious or biased, for example the Persian origin of the Maiden Tower in Baku is not confirmed universally. But it still depends on each particular case and indeed there are still some remains of Iranian heritage in Azerbaijan. brandспойт 16:23, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
do you deny that republic of Azerbaijan was Iranian territory? --Babakexorramdin (talk) 16:37, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
Originally it was not, but has been such intermittently as the result of conquests. brandспойт 12:21, 8 May 2009 (UTC)
Here lies your bias. the territory of what is the republic of Azerbaijan has been for more than 2000 years an integral part of subsequent Iranian empires, untill Russians conquered it in 18012 and 1828. There were even movements from within the your society to reunify it with Iran. Now you hate Iran so much despite the shared history, culture, religion and language, while you are so in love with Turkey who has committed genocide on Azeris in the course of history. Anyway what you say is illogical, what conquest? in that sense was transcaucasia not much different than any other part of Iran, such as Khuzestan, Fars, Khorasan, Mazandaran etc... in fact the territory of republic of Azerbaijan has been for more continous time part of Iran than for instance Khorasan, yet no one questions the Iranian character of Khorasan.Remember you are an Iranian country and not an Ottoman or Russian. Your whole history and culture is deeply Iranian. Actually Iranians do not give the label Iranian to many peoples, so you may regard it as an honor!--Babakexorramdin (talk) 12:47, 8 May 2009 (UTC)
The word empire speaks for itself. I don't hate Iran, but restrain Iranian claims similar to your nationalist statement Remember you are an Iranian country. brandспойт 13:43, 8 May 2009 (UTC)
There is nothing nationalistic in it. That is a cultural fact. It is like to say that Sweden is a Nordic country. But it is your guys who claim Iranian territory, funnily when 20% of your republic's territory is occupied by a smaller country (which was also part of Iran any way). On the other hand Turkey did all it wanted with you and even wanted to assasinate your president, and even demanded that you speak istanbuli Turkish. And of couyrse it is Iran that is bad and Turkey it is good, moreover Russia is a liberator. What a funny world. Any way to be clear: no claims on Iranian history and territory will be tolerated and at the moment you have power of numbers on Russian wikipedia, but that will change soon. So it is better that your team peacefully reverts all those chauvinistic lies there. Your team has its hand full with the problems they have with Armenians. A problem with Iranians is bad for you, because there are 10 times more Iranians than you.--Babakexorramdin (talk) 14:25, 8 May 2009 (UTC)
First of all, I would like to inform that I edit in Ruwiki extremely seldom, just check the contribs. Secondly, your country of 20% is unrecognized internationally, including Armenia and Iran. Regarding Iranians, don't worry, I don't care whether they are 10 times or 20 times more. brandспойт 17:15, 8 May 2009 (UTC)
Fine it is claer that you have some aversions against Iranians and you kept quite about Turkey. And you are honest that you did not deny that many people from your country including the team of editors in wikipedia do have territorial claims on Iranian territory. And I did not understand what has international recognition to do with it? What I said is that your nationalism is destructive to your country. When a former province or lets say Armenia occupies 20% of your territory it is extremely ridiculous to claim territory from a country which is at least ten times more populous and militarily and economically stronger than your country. It is not fine for your people, who I any way regard as co-Iranians and wish them well.--Babakexorramdin (talk) 22:00, 8 May 2009 (UTC)
I appreciate your help against Pan-Turkists, but don't have any claims to Iran. I even don't recall the official Azerbaijan having such claims since its independence from the Soviet Union. Thanks for wishing well anyway. brandспойт 11:48, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

Ganja

Hi please use the talkpage to give your rational. I gave my rational. The Persian name was there a year ago. If the Russian name is there, then the Persian name should be there. Again any word that has etymologically Persian root or probable Persian root and has been used extensively in Persian literature (and it has been since more than a 1000 years) is valid. This has nothing to do with your argument with Babak, but please use the talkpage. Note the Azeri language did not exist for some articles (say Nezami or others) but I have allowed it to be there with its latin script. So it is best to be inclusive here and not exclude names based on narrow nationalist criterion. In this case the criterion is etymologically of the word which is Iranian and has been used long before the Russian or even the existence of the Azeri-Turkish language. Thanks. --Nepaheshgar (talk) 23:43, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

Nepaheshgar, In fact all placenames in the republic of Azerbaijan that existed before 1930s should be written in Iranian-Azeri script, because they used that alphabet themselves in the republic of Azerbaijan before the imposition of Cyrlic and Latin on them by Russians and Turks. On the other hand in Iran Latin and Cyrlic were never used.--Babakexorramdin (talk) 11:18, 9 May 2009 (UTC)
As to 1930s, see Azerbaijani alphabet, from 1918 till 1939 Latin letters were used. There was no imposition by Turks of Latin alphabet, it was adopted in Azerbaijan to get rid of Soviet pattern and be close to European alphabets. brandспойт 11:26, 9 May 2009 (UTC)
No see your banknotes from the times of Rsaulzadeh and the early Soviet times, they are written in in Iranian-Azeri alphabets. Only in the end of 1920s were Latin introduced, but it was a different type of Latin as it is today. After the indepedence Elchibey wanted to abolish the Azeri language and Turks were pushing to replace your language with Istanbuli Turkish. he didnt succeed but could anyway impose a Turkish-alike Latn Aphabet. It is clear that you hate Iran and do not want to admit your Iranian heritage, so you vioalte the history with regard to Iran. But at least be sincere to your own history.--Babakexorramdin (talk) 13:40, 9 May 2009 (UTC)
Please do not delete Persian names for etymologies that are Persian. This is an Encyclopedia and I am not here to make political claims. Just like we do not delete the Turkish name in Tabriz even though the name is not Turkish. But anything that has relavance is inserted and the more names , the better. Thanks. --Nepaheshgar (talk) 16:39, 5 June 2009 (UTC)

your question

I think we have had discussed this already. From the sources oit is obvious that 1- the territories of these Khanates were Iranian territory 2- they were of predominantly Turkicspeaking Shia background, so there is a continuity with the people of the republic of Azerbaijan rather than with Armenia 3- These Khanates were to various degree self-governing depending to the political context of time and the mode of governance of the Iranian empire. In this sense they were no more or less different than other parts of the Iranian empire. All these are obvious from the sources. --Babakexorramdin (talk) 14:28, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

They were not Iranian territories in terms of incorporation, but had a varied degree of independence, as you outlined. The Baku Khanate in particular was independent, as confirmed by majority of sources I cited. Iranian POV there should be dealt according to WP:UNDUE. brandt 14:33, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
The sources say exactly as I said. Please do not push your POV.--Babakexorramdin (talk) 14:40, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

Request reason:

The edits provided are not reverts as specified in WP:RV. The current version of the disputed place in the article represents consensus, achieved by me and Babakexorramdin via proposed phrasing whilst the talk page indicates that it was me, who started to seek consensus. I believe the current block is a violation of good faith, WP:PILLAR, WP:BOLD and WP:IAR.

Decline reason:

Those edits were reverts and therefore you have clearly violated your editing restrictions. Ice Cold Beer (talk) 09:55, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first, then use the {{unblock}} template again. If you make too many unconvincing or disruptive unblock requests, you may be prevented from editing this page until your block has expired.

Request reason:

Honestly, I did not expect my request would be declined and hereby would like to ask for review. Reverting is explained in WP:RV, not WP:3RR, which deals with three-revert violation (which I have not breached) and as per WP:REVEXP I explained my edits. In my opinion the decision applied is a one-sided interpretation of the definition as if is the only one existing. Additionally, as in AA2 final decision, the sanctions are expected to be imposed only when a warned editor repeatedly or seriously fails to adhere to the purpose of Wikipedia, any expected standards of behavior, or any normal editorial process. I have wrote in the report, that my last second edit ultimately resulted into consensus pursuant to the then-ongoing discussion and edit summaries, instead I was speedily blocked with "further violations will lead to longer blocks and/or restrictions" as if I am the one specified in the aforementioned decision or an edit warrior. Besides, there was no undoing of edits by others - the only one I was talking to is Babakexorramdin (talk · contribs). :The decision on such issues should depend on some knowledge about the disputed subject and/or involvement in discussion and can not be settled through selective sanctioning. It is unnatural when someone discusses to build a consensus, but the other one cherry-picks to report, especially "in order to prevent escalation of edit warring" and in terms of existing AA2 remedies. There should be no place for witch hunt in Wikipedia and current editing atmosphere becomes unhealthy. Brandt 11:08, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

Decline reason:

I concur with the other admins, this was legitimate application of ArbCom enforcement. In addition, I advise that an ArbCom enforcement block can only be overturned by consensus, not by a single admin. PhilKnight (talk) 21:30, 20 June 2009 (UTC)
