WP:AE#Jaqeli[edit]

Regarding Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Enforcement#Jaqeli. Jaqeli has not edited since 24 January, so it's unlikely they will respond to the complaint. Also I notice that you have made only one post to his talk page in the last six months. This may suggest that the possibiities of normal discussion have not been exhausted. Shall I just close this for now? Then if you see that Jaqeli starts to edit again, you can let me know and we can decide what to do then. Thanks, EdJohnston (talk) 18:33, 5 February 2016 (UTC)

@EdJohnston: Hi EdJohnston. I replied to the issue you've raised. I'd also like to suggest, if possible, to have other admins look into this as well. As far as I can see, there's plenty of evidence that shows problems in user conduct, and we shouldn't be dismissing this case as a mere issue of content. So I think we need to weigh some options here. Don't get me wrong, I've always respected your opinions at AE, and I still do. But in this circumstance, I think more opinions would be more helpful. Étienne Dolet (talk) 20:02, 5 February 2016 (UTC)
I agree it's an issue of editor behavior, but Jaqeli has edited very sparsely. And you don't seem to have engaged him in discussion about the items you are citing in the AE complaint. For example, you don't like him making Georgia be a 'medieval great power'. But have you ever posted your objection to that anywhere? EdJohnston (talk) 03:26, 6 February 2016 (UTC)
EdJohnston The underlining premise to my report was to insinuate the notion that Jaqeli was continuing the same pattern of disruption that got him topic-banned too many times before. I noticed that this was the case after I had to revert his edit at Tumanishvili. Eventually, however, I examined his edits and suggested conclusively, on the AE board, that it was similarly disruptive in one way or another. Apparently, he learned lessons from his "past mistakes" in his last appeal, but that seems to be all but neglected. So if we all agree that it's an issue of editor behavior, why can't we proceed it as such? At the end of the day, the issue should not be viewed as an EtienneDolet vs. Jaqeli issue, but a Jaqeli vs. AA2 issue. I know this may be hard to conceive since most filers at AE have a personal grievance with those they file an AE report against, but this is not the case at this specific circumstance. In any case, I find it quite concerning to let go of a user you were willing to ban indefinitely simply because I personally wasn't there to remind him how he should or should not edit. The point is that Jaqeli is perfectly aware, even more than me, that these types of edits in the AA2 topic area are under arbitration and can lead to sanctioning. I do not think I should even be there to familiarize himself of this. The very fact that he has received so many warnings, blocks, and bans should be suffice in that regard. Étienne Dolet (talk) 11:19, 6 February 2016 (UTC)
EdJohnston Thank you for taking the time and handling the situation. I don't feel that I fully understand the closure remark here. So I want to reraise the same question Tiptoethrutheminefield had at the AE report: Does this mean he is allowed to edit Georgian specific articles? If that's the case, then he'd also be allowed to edit Armenian specific articles. This may be concerning considering the disruption he has caused in relation to them. Étienne Dolet (talk) 20:27, 6 February 2016 (UTC)
Let's see what happens when he resumes editing. The diffs in your report seemed to be cases where both Georgia and Armenia were mentioned in the same article. Nobody seems to mind his work on Georgian-specific articles. EdJohnston (talk) 20:53, 6 February 2016 (UTC)

Emin Huseynov[edit]

Hello, I have slighly cropped the pic, balanced background and softened a little the entire photo. Criticism and suggestions are welcome.--Carnby (talk) 13:44, 7 February 2016 (UTC)

Thanks Carnby. The pic looks better now. Étienne Dolet (talk) 21:17, 7 February 2016 (UTC)

Mitanni[edit]

Hello, some Wikipedia user who appears to be Georgian, removed the Indo-European template from the Mitanni article. This users edit history is full of Anti-Armenian propaganda. Please restore the template in Mitanni, thanks. 166.176.56.197 (talk) 20:52, 16 February 2016 (UTC)


Armenian church near Kharpert used as public toilet after the genocide[edit]

The Armenian Evangelical Church, Elâzığ, also interesting for @Yerevantsi:. Do you have a photograph?--Hayodzazgi (talk) 20:08, 20 February 2016 (UTC)

And this one was turned into a cinema for pornography.--Hayodzazgi (talk) 13:31, 21 February 2016 (UTC)
This is just propaganda, a fake story, probably invented by those involved in the Turkish-Armenian reconciliation "industry" because they have cast their avaricious eyes onto this monument and realized they can make money out of it, and want to speed things along. Similar fake stories were spread about Aghtamar, and about Ani, to encourage the initiation of projects that did nothing to preserve the monuments but which were financially lucrative for those involved. The Elazig church is probably the last visual reminder of the AG that survives in the middle of any major Turkish city - but its integrity as an historical monument will be destroyed if those TAR parasites get their hands on it. At the moment it is a raw, dramatic and very evocative empty roofless shell, in the middle of a large open space that is used as a car park and which is the last bit of open space in the middle of Elazig. It exists like a rip in the visual fabric of a modern densely-packed city, allowing a glimpse of the past. So it is not surprising that those involved in the fake reconciliation industry want it sanitized by "restoration". Tiptoethrutheminefield (talk) 03:01, 26 February 2016 (UTC)

Spam on Putin talk page[edit]

I have deleted three more of the "election" sections on the talk page. I hope I can count on your support for this. And if there are more going to appear, perhaps take your turn in removing them. Tiptoethrutheminefield (talk) 02:35, 26 February 2016 (UTC)

Tiptoethrutheminefield, I agree there's a lot of spam on the TP. But there's always going to be someone that's going to revert you upon removing them. Unfortunately, the edit-warring is not only on the main space anymore, but has now commenced at the talk page as well. Étienne Dolet (talk) 20:34, 26 February 2016 (UTC)

3RR on VP[edit]

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Vladimir Putin. 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.

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. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing.

3 reverts in just a couple of hours. Yes I know not technically a 3RR violation. But hey! Didn't you recently report someone for similar? Volunteer Marek (talk) 06:38, 26 February 2016 (UTC)

Reply[edit]

No, there was no "tag teaming". You could easily single out a lot of other editors, X and Y, who are active in the same subject area for years and happened to agree on something. Yes, I occasionally check edits made by many contributors, including VM. It does not mean I "wikistalk" them or "tag team" with them. I frequently disagree with them (can provide diffs), and if I make an edit, this is my edit. I know the subject, checked the sources, and think this is good edit. No one recently complained. My very best wishes (talk) 13:29, 26 February 2016 (UTC)

There's probably 1000s of users who share the same interests with me, but I don't engage in tag-team edit-warring with them. That's not helpful for the encyclopedia. For example, when you make a WP:NINJA-style revert, as you did at Putin, you are not helping to resolve the issue through appropriate consensus building measures. Instead, you're fanning the flames and making it appear that the issue can be only solved through edit-warring, which should never be the case. Étienne Dolet (talk) 18:22, 26 February 2016 (UTC)
And now it appears that you have reverted me again. That's a big no-no. Étienne Dolet (talk) 18:26, 26 February 2016 (UTC)

Vladimir Putin[edit]

You and User:My very best wishes seem to be in a dispute. He made this recent edit, which you reverted. While this material about cluster bombs is well-sourced, it is up to editor consensus whether it belongs in Putin's own article. Have you discussed this on the talk page? I am considering if the article should be under a WP:1RR restriction or full protection. Another option is to issue page bans to anyone who reverts a lot and doesn't seem to be actively seeking consensus. Thank you, EdJohnston (talk) 17:12, 26 February 2016 (UTC)

Hi EdJohnston,
The problems concerning this article are not limited to Vladimir Putin. There's some concerning tag-team edit-warring going which is not only hampering the consensus building process of this article, but of many other articles. Therefore, I don't think this particular article should go into 1RR because of that, rather a full protection may be more appropriate. Yes, I have participated in the discussion at the talk page (see: section here). There appears to be at least 5 users that are against its inclusion, and just Mvbw and VM in favor of it. However, the tag-team edit-warring has been effective for them. But Wikipedia is not about who wins the "edit-war" battle, rather it should be an environment of consensus building and good faith editing. Thank you for taking the time looking into this matter. Étienne Dolet (talk) 18:08, 26 February 2016 (UTC)
It is against the wikirules to delete or tamper with someone's else's comments.--Galassi (talk) 19:35, 27 February 2016 (UTC)
Not if they're personal attacks buddy. Étienne Dolet (talk) 19:36, 27 February 2016 (UTC)
They were not personal attacks, they were a criticism of your actions on the article. Well deserved. And it's not just me and MVBW, but also several other editors, as you well know since you templated them with spurious warnings (like the user above).Volunteer Marek (talk) 05:46, 28 February 2016 (UTC)
Please see WP:PA: comment on content, not on the contributor. Anyways, please see my compromise at ANI. Étienne Dolet (talk) 05:51, 28 February 2016 (UTC)
  • I saw you removed my comment [1] because you did not understand my point. OK, there is nothing wrong to explain. I would not recommend you submitting an WP:AE request right now because:
  1. Why did you single me out? Because I edited page about Putin? There are at least two other contributors who are a lot more active than me and who have a greater editing overlap with VM than me.
  2. You suppose to bring to WP:AE only something very recent, less than 1 week old.
  3. Your own behavior is far from perfect (I just gave you a random diff; there is a lot more), so you are risking to be sanctioned yourself.
  4. Bringing battleground requests to WP:AE is a very bad idea. Trust me. My very best wishes (talk) 21:38, 4 March 2016 (UTC)

Kinaliada[edit]

Hallo Etienne, I need a favour from you. ;-) On itwiki I added on the article about Kinaliada the fact, supported by this Turkish official source, that the island has since the 19th century a predominantly Armenian population. Talking about OR, I know the island, and actually when we were there we met several Armenians, had dinner at an Armenian club and visited an Armenian church, and so on. Now there is a Turkish editor who affirms that it is not so anymore, and that nowadays the island is "Turkish" as the others. Do you have info (and sources) about this issue? Thanks Alex2006 (talk) 10:51, 28 February 2016 (UTC)

Alessandro57, I'm surprised that's even debatable. Turkish Wikipedia can get tough to edit in sometimes. They'll dismiss sources Armenian sources just because they're "Armenian" or whatever. Anyways, Kinaliada has always been 90% Armenian, up until RTP came around. I'd say in the 19th century it was 95% Armenian (and a little Greek, there's a Greek church there after all). The streets even had Armenian names. You might find it hard to believe but Akasya used to be named Agasyan. Saki Bey was Sarkisyan and etc. I just can't seem to find a source that verifies this, but I remember reading this somewhere. All the apartments' names on the island were Armenian ([2]). In fact, when the island had at least 3 churches, there wasn't even a mosque on the island until the 1970s. The Turkish school wasn't open till then either, while there was an Armenian school (Nersisyan) as early as 1855. Till this day, there is no Muslim cemetery or other Muslim dominated community organizations. The island's heritage still remains largely Armenian. There's one book that highlights all of this brilliantly, and that's Orhan Sevki's Proti'den Kınalı'ya tanıklıklarla Kınalıada. I highly recommend you read that. Étienne Dolet (talk) 13:42, 28 February 2016 (UTC)
Thanks Etienne, I had no doubt about it, also because I know many Turks which confirm it (and have no problem in doing it ;-)) and the source that I found on the internet are also turkish one, but this guy keeps insisting...Good, I will put this source on the article! Thanks, Alex2006 (talk) 15:50, 28 February 2016 (UTC)

Formal mediation has been requested[edit]

The Mediation Committee has received a request for formal mediation of the dispute relating to "Vladimir Putin". As an editor concerned in this dispute, you are invited to participate in the mediation. Mediation is a voluntary process which resolves a dispute over article content by facilitation, consensus-building, and compromise among the involved editors. After reviewing the request page, the formal mediation policy, and the guide to formal mediation, please indicate in the "party agreement" section whether you agree to participate. Because requests must be responded to by the Mediation Committee within seven days, please respond to the request by 11 March 2016.

Discussion relating to the mediation request is welcome at the case talk page. Thank you.

Anita Conti[edit]

I was surprised to see you deleted Category:French women photographers. Perhaps you could explain why you find this inappropriate.--Ipigott (talk) 18:59, 7 March 2016 (UTC)

Ipigott I corrected my mistake. Actually I meant to delete French photographers category since it's less specific than French women photographers. I know that we need to be more specific when it comes to categorization. Étienne Dolet (talk) 19:07, 7 March 2016 (UTC)

Request for arbitration declined[edit]

A request for arbitration you were party to has been declined.

The case has been declined as the subject area is already subject to discretionary sanctions and no alternate dispute resolution has recently taken place regarding the issue at hand.

Dydd Gŵyl Dewi[edit]

Hi Étienne (and pinging User:Adam Cuerden). I've only just now seen Wikipedia:Featured picture candidates/Dydd Gŵyl Dewi, which closed this morning – which is a pity as I can offer an answer to some of your questions. The photo is, in my opinion, a good illustration of the main St David's Day parade in Cardiff and as such has EV. It does relate to St David's Day more than to any other Welsh event; the druidic costumes for the National Eisteddfod of Wales are a little different from this, with long white, blue, purple or green robes; see e.g. here or here. Parades like the ones in Cardiff and Aberystwyth aren't the only way St David's Day is celebrated – schools hold an eisteddfod on the day – but they are the most public. Very sorry not to have spotted this as Category:Featured pictures of Wales is looking very empty! Ham II (talk) 08:21, 11 March 2016 (UTC)

@Ham II: Why don't we figure out a crop and renominate after? Adam Cuerden (talk) 12:04, 11 March 2016 (UTC)
@Adam Cuerden: Great idea. I've been bold and done a lossless crop with the CropTool: File:Gorymdaith Genedlaethol Gŵyl Dewi, 2009 – National St David's Day Parade, 2009.jpg. What do you think? Feel free to overwrite it as you see fit. Ham II (talk) 16:01, 11 March 2016 (UTC)
@Ham II: A bit too off-centre, probably. We may need to lose some of the kilted man on the right to keep it centred enough. Adam Cuerden (talk) 18:20, 11 March 2016 (UTC)
I'd say it's better. But now I'm worried that we'll lose the kilted man since he's holding up the flag. Étienne Dolet (talk) 18:26, 11 March 2016 (UTC)
@Adam Cuerden: I've cropped it 6% from the right. Too much, too little or just right? Ham II (talk) 18:30, 11 March 2016 (UTC)
Can we add back a little bit more on the left? IF there's a bit of yellowshirt that won't matter so much as an awkward crop, I think. Adam Cuerden (talk) 18:44, 11 March 2016 (UTC)
I agree. It won't hurt to have even a little barely noticeable piece of the yellow man. Étienne Dolet (talk) 19:07, 11 March 2016 (UTC)
@Adam Cuerden: I had to upload a third version as the CropTool won't allow me to overwrite the second from the first, so here's the new link: File:Gorymdaith Genedlaethol Gŵyl Dewi 2009 – National St David's Day Parade 2009.jpg. Any better? Ham II (talk) 19:49, 11 March 2016 (UTC) (PS: Am I the only one who thinks the yellow shirt is brown?)
Brown is just dark yellow. It looks pretty good. Could see trying a little more left, but it's nae bad. Adam Cuerden (talk) 19:55, 11 March 2016 (UTC)

Just for the record, if you check this editor that just recently reverted me on this issue, he was the one that right when he removed the date of Armenian history, he immediately went to the Jewish people article and changed their history to 1000 years older then what was previously on the article, which is to 2000 BC.

Your recent editing history shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. To resolve the content dispute, please do not revert or change the edits of others when you are reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. The best practice at this stage is to discuss, not edit-war. See BRD for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly. 109.108.250.225 (talk) 23:42, 8 April 2016 (UTC)

Regarding Aghet added to the Armenian Genocide article[edit]

Some 16 references have been cited defining the word Aghed / Aghet as an alternative name for the Armenian Genocide. Do you oppose the addition of the word Aghed into the Armenian Genocide article? I would like a straight answer. Tiptoethrutheminefield (talk) 02:32, 13 April 2016 (UTC)

I'm for the format Armen Ohanian suggested. My only concern is that the first sentence of the article is being bloated with alternative names. If you guys come to a conclusion, make sure it assesses that problem. As for my opinion, I am against its inclusion if it means to bloat the first sentence. Étienne Dolet (talk) 02:57, 13 April 2016 (UTC)
The two that now consider you an ally are reading considerably more into your opinion than just "format". So I think you need to clarify. Are you against the inclusion of the word "Aghet" in the body of the article, given parity with and alongside the inclusion of "Metz Yeghern", as alternative names of the Armenian Genocide? Tiptoethrutheminefield (talk) 03:19, 13 April 2016 (UTC)
I thought this was all about the first sentence. Give me a second Tiptoe, and let me clarify with Armen and Diranakir. Étienne Dolet (talk) 03:24, 13 April 2016 (UTC)
Next to nothing said by Armen and Diranakir was about the first sentence. Tiptoethrutheminefield (talk) 15:08, 13 April 2016 (UTC)
Tiptoethrutheminefield what part of the body did you want it added? Étienne Dolet (talk) 03:35, 13 April 2016 (UTC)
I would suggest a new section, perhaps called "Terminology", or "Nomenclature", I am open to discussion of the title. In it the origin of the coining of the word "genocide" would be explained, and all the alternative pre-genocide word coining terminology English-language names such as "Armenian MAsacres", "Armenian Holocaust", etc, would be mentioned. And the Armenian names used by the survivors, including Aghet and Metz Yeghern. And issues involving their use, including alternative translations, and also the examples of euphemistic use of terminology. And maybe the terminology used by denialist sources ("events of 1915", etc) if we can find third party sources that talk about that terminology (as opposed to us just lifting that terminology direct from those denialist sources). Tiptoethrutheminefield (talk) 15:06, 13 April 2016 (UTC)
Okay, then I suggest just adding a paragraph in the origin of the word genocide section. No need to create a new section. Thereafter, the talk page discussion can focus on what should be placed and under what context. Étienne Dolet (talk) 21:19, 13 April 2016 (UTC)

Portion vs almost all[edit]

Firstly, we don't question our sources. As for your "Kars-related concerns" (as I know it's because of that); it purely depends on whether Kars is included in the definition or not, whether all or most of eastern Armenia was ceded in 1828. Kars can be considered both part of Western as well as Eastern Armenia. "Portion" is a nonsensical term regarding this matter and no academic or historian has ever used the the formulation "a portion of eastern Armenia" (or anything alike) to refer to the 1828 event. What portion? 10%? 20%? 90%? 80%? 33,3%? The lesser or the greater portion? "Almost all" or "most of" are the sole correct wordings here given that only Kars fell outside the Qajar reach. Mind you though, a lot of academics simply keep it on the entire territory of eastern Armenia that was ceded in 1828. - LouisAragon (talk) 18:47, 2 June 2016 (UTC)

Stop vandalism[edit]

Stop vandalising Turkey releated pages. As you did here https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Khanasor_Expedition&type=revision&diff=729426217&oldid=729373414 you removed only source there. And here https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Dersim_massacre&diff=prev&oldid=729427210 you are changing a rebellion to massacre.85.105.170.64 (talk) 22:12, 12 July 2016 (UTC)

Personne morale[edit]

Hi, I assume you speak French given your username. I need someone to create an English version of this article: https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Personne_morale

It has a version in all major languages except for English. This concept is foreign to the English world, being reason of serious selection bias when drawing a list of publications. It was in the Ottoman considered as the household. Yaḥyā ‎ (talk) 19:22, 29 July 2016 (UTC)
