Northern Cyprus IS a country[edit]

1. Google Search: ""Northern Cyprus" Country": 856,000 results!
2. The definition of country in WP: A country may be an independent sovereign state or one that is occupied by another state, as a non-sovereign or formerly sovereign political division, or a geographic region associated with sets of previously independent or differently associated peoples with distinct political characteristics. Hence, the definition of "country" exceeds UN membership.
3. The sources from UN cite Northern Cyprus as a different country as well:
World Happiness Report 2015 of United Nations' Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) ranked Northern Cyprus 66th among 158 countries, directly above the Republic of Cyprus, which was ranked 67th. UN SDSN World Happiness Report 2015 p.27: 2012-2014 country rankings:

Cerattepe[edit]

I had a look at your article Cerattepe with a view to possibly reviewing it for DYK, though I didn't do so. I noticed a red link to Hatila Valley National Park and created an article for that instead. I cannot establish the exact coordinates of the park nor exactly where it stands in relation to your mountain, but I found a map which I have added to my article which shows the area, and on which I reckon I can work out where the Hatila Valley is. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 11:52, 1 March 2016 (UTC)

Hi Cwmhiraeth, thank you so much for reading the article and I am so happy to hear that it helped the creation of another article. I used Google Maps to find out the coordinates of the park and in the map you found, it is probably one of the rifts towards the northeast. This also helped me establish the coordinates of the hill roughly and they really seem to be close. --GGT (talk) 14:45, 1 March 2016 (UTC)
Thanks. I explored around on the Google Map and had a look at the accompanying photographs. Very nice, but still difficult to understand the topography. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 18:27, 1 March 2016 (UTC)

Disruptive editing[edit]

You edited articles using a Turkish point of view. Wikipedia is not the Turkish government's encyclopedia. Details you add must be neutral as much as possible. However, I see you have edited Yasar Kemal and 2016 Ankara bombing articles using Turkish point of view and removing details which make the article's more neutral. You have also removed sources in Yasar Kemal's article. This is my last warning, you will be reported to admins. Ferakp (talk) 22:24, 10 March 2016 (UTC)
Warning icon Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to violate Wikipedia's neutral point of view policy by adding commentary and your personal analysis into articles, you may be blocked from editing.

By all means. I encourage you strongly to adhere to a collaborative, not confrontational style, though. And well, if I do get reported for all my sensitive edits, it means that I am done with - imagine another user coming and accusing me of anti-Turkism due to my expansion of Assyrian genocide, or my elaboration of human rights violations against both communities and destruction of cultural heritage on Turkish invasion of Cyprus and so forth, and then being accused of pro-Turkish again because I write on Northern Cyprus and Maratha, Santalaris and Aloda massacre and so forth (actually, don't just imagine this, see above).

The decentralization issue[edit]

Would you be kind enough to help defend the consensus version of the decentralization paragraph on the Turkey article against the edit warring of that folk? -- 2A1ZA (talk) 02:05, 19 December 2016 (UTC)

Turkey-PKK conflict casualties[edit]

Even though I don't agree with you that we should remove the 17,000 missing figure because in your personal POV the sources are outrages (their reliability should be first discussed among all involved editors in my opinion) I won't be reintroducing the 17,000 missing or the sources since I don't see the issue that much significant. However, regarding the issue of placing more prominence on the outdated info over more up-to-date info, I have attempted a compromise edit, I didn't place your figure at the bottom, but not at the very top ether. Instead, in the 2nd row from the top, with the latest (most up-to-date) Turkish claim being at the top right above your figure. I hope this is a satisfactory compromise proposal. EkoGraf (talk) 21:43, 20 December 2016 (UTC)

Template[edit]

Do you think that attack should be added to the 2016 terrorism template? I know that after happened after the clock struck. And I know that the answer is technically obvious. But since the attack was planned and executed before midnight, it may fall into the 2016 category. At best, we can place the date as (Dec 31-Jan 1) or something, right? Étienne Dolet (talk) 00:13, 1 January 2017 (UTC)

Hi EtienneDolet, firstly thanks for your efforts on the coverage. Your points are valid and I do think that would be fine (even technically the attack was in 2016 in UTC); even though the reader could find it a bit idiosyncratic, it would be useful for future reference from other articles etc. --GGT (talk) 00:16, 1 January 2017 (UTC)
No problem GGT. I added it. I don't know what part of the world you live in, but I hope you, your friends, and your family are okay. Happy new years. Étienne Dolet (talk) 00:25, 1 January 2017 (UTC)
My reassurances on that, and I truly hope the same for you, regardless of the part of the world you live in. Happy new year to you too. --GGT (talk) 00:26, 1 January 2017 (UTC)

Redirection of list of state leaders in 2016 and list of state leaders in 2017 to list of state leaders in the 21st century[edit]

Your edit in Jazira canton[edit]

Thank you for your edit in Jazira canton. As you will see in all articles related to alleged "rojava", there is a lot of original research and blackwashing happening here. Due to the contributions of 2 or 3 POV editors, Wikipedia looks like a mirror of PYD and other Kurdish propaganda sites. You may be inbterested in the discussion here.
