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).

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.

Hi EtienneDolet, firstly thanks for your efforts on the coverage.

Edit on Afrin article[edit]

Hi GGT,

Hope all is well. I respect your edit. To create a balance, we should have the N. Cyprus President's remarks. I have two slight concerns, which I didn't want to raise by reverting or creating a fuss on the TP. 1) Akinci's condemnation part should be shortened. A simple sentence will do in my opinion. 2) I don't think it belongs in the "Other political entities" since the matter is concerned more with Erdogan's response rather than the newspaper itself. Let's not forget, if it weren't for his "give the necessary response to this" statement, perhaps no one would've attacked the office of that newspaper. In other words, Erdogan's WP:WEIGHT is much more than that of anyone else's in this matter. Let me know what you think. Étienne Dolet (talk) 05:20, 26 January 2018 (UTC)

Hi @EtienneDolet:. My sincere apologies for this being terribly late, this is quite a busy period for me. Hope all is well for you as well and thanks for your constructive stance.
It was of course only because of Erdoğan's targeting of the newspaper that it was attacked. The attack, however, still did take place in Northern Cyprus. Furthermore, the events of 22 January, as they are beginning to be called commonly in Turkish Cypriot press, went beyond an attack on only the newspaper - the mob tried to attack Akıncı, who was there in an attempt to calm the situation and encourage reinforcement of security, and later planted the Kayı flag, a symbol used commonly by the Grey Wolves, on the Turkish Cypriot parliament whilst it was in session. Erdoğan made the statement and that was it regarding Turkey, it is Turkish Cypriots who had to live with the horror of the violence and the humiliation of the attack against their institutions (you may wish to browse recent articles and columns in newspapers such as Kıbrıs Postası, Yenidüzen, Kıbrıs). It is press freedom in Northern Cyprus, completely distinct from press freedom in Turkey, that was called into question as a result of foreign interference, and at the end of the day this incident is going to be mentioned in human rights reports for Northern Cyprus, not Turkey. And it was in response to this that a Peace and Democracy March (of substantial size for N. Cyprus) that was organised. So no, the matter has more to do with Northern Cyprus than with Turkey at the end of the day, and as such it should remain in the "other political entities" section and the attack on Akıncı should stay.
I see that part of the Akıncı statement has been removed. That is OK, in hindsight the quote may have been too much.
Actually, in my opinion, it needs to be made clear that despite the police not interfering, the violence did not enjoy any support from mainstream Turkish Cypriot public. All political parties except the YDP (for obvious reasons) expressed disapproval or condemnation. So maybe something like "This attack was met with disapproval from prominent Turkish Cypriot politicians of various political parties, as well as President Mustafa Akıncı, who was attacked when he was at the site to request extra security. This prompted a 5,000-strong Peace and Democracy March." might do with proper sourcing. Well anyway, I hope that the current version in the article is OK with you, though, and otherwise I hope that this has been convincing enough and I trust that any edits you make on that part will be alright.
And whilst we are here, thanks for the Turkification section on the Atatürk article. I will sooner or later respond to your points on the talk page, but as I am sure you understand, that will require a slightly more sophisticated and committed examination of sources and if necessary subsequent discussion, for which I need more time :) Apologies for the delay there as well. --GGT (talk) 23:01, 5 February 2018 (UTC)
No problem GGT. I had an idea. Maybe we can mention the Afrika incident twice in the article? I know it's usually never suggested. But Erdogan's speech can easily fall under the Media restrictions section. Étienne Dolet (talk) 02:40, 6 February 2018 (UTC)
I understand your point @EtienneDolet:, and this is a fair idea, but I still have reservations. The title of the section reads "Media restrictions and arrests in Turkey". This is not "media restriction in Turkey" although it is media restriction by Turkey. And it is not that this sort of attempt at restriction abroad is without precedent: Böhmermann affair is treated within the context of Germany-Turkey relations rather than media restrictions within Turkey. It would follow that this should also be treated in a similar manner, although of course the situation in Northern Cyprus is vastly different. I guess it would be fine if it the section is renamed "Media restrictions and arrests" only and care is taken not to conflate this with restrictions within Turkey. On another note, the Afrika incident is receiving sustained coverage regarding the prosecution of the perpetrators and the inaction of the police, and may be notable enough to have its own article. I will see what I am able to do. --GGT (talk) 13:22, 6 February 2018 (UTC)
It's okay. No need to stress over this. I'm fine to leave it as is for now. Étienne Dolet (talk) 20:55, 6 February 2018 (UTC)

Northern Cyprus[edit]

Hello, could you check the discussion on Talk:Northern Cyprus? I would like to know your opinion. Regards, Akocsg (talk) 02:39, 13 February 2018 (UTC)

Hi Akocsg. Firstly I'd like to point out to the guideline regarding canvassing. I will be assuming that you sent this message in good faith as an appropriate notification, as this is one of my primary areas of contribution on Wikipedia, I have written substantial portions of the article, and I cannot think of any other active editors with previous interest/edits in the article who could be invited to join. However, there is a potential for it to be interpreted as inappropriate canvassing and thus I feel the need for a good-faith reminder.
Secondly, recognition only matters if it has international standing or effects on international relations. Nakhichevan is not an independent country and thus cannot pursue a foreign policy on its own. Their recognition is symbolic and is undue for the lead. There are parallels with this in other articles: the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic is recognised by a number of US states, but we do not mention this in the lead. It should be mentioned in the "foreign relations" section, which it is.
Thirdly, I see that you have an interest in articles concerning Turkey and Northern Cyprus. We do have great deficiencies in such articles of ours and I would appreciate your contribution. I must say that your recent record on talk pages have not really been constructive and more constructive contributions would be advisable and desirable. Thank you for your great work on 1951 Turkish Football Championship, for instance. --GGT (talk) 22:10, 14 February 2018 (UTC)

Greek Cypriots flag[edit]

Hey. I am Greek.

The flag that I add as one of the Greek Cypriot flags is correct. It is used not only by Greek Cypriot organization in Greece, but also by many Greek Cypriots around the world. This flag is also used by a lot of Greek Cypriots and I think is more correct.  File:Flag of EOKA.tif A. Katechis Mpourtoulis (talk) 10:22, 29 March 2018 (UTC)

Hey there![edit]

Hey there! I 'd like to ask if you got access to the genocide files by harry scott gibbons. I am searching into the involvement of GreeK military officers on Tochni massacre and M.Drousiotis cites Gibbons, p.488 for that. Meanwhile, There has been a lot of discussion regarding the origin of turkish cypriots in the recently translated article of Τουρκοκύπριοι (Turkish Cypriots) Most of it was focus on the interesting research by Heraclides. In my POV, there are a lot of drawbacks in the referred concusions that TC and GC share the same pre-ottoman gene pool. First, the research was not conducted to invastigate on that subject hense, methodological deficiencies ensue. Second, the method of collecting and analysing Gene haplotypes has been different btween GC and TC. But anyway, that is just my opinion, have you read anything about in on TC press or elsewhere? Ah! and something else: I have added to the Τουρκοκύπριοι (Turkish Cypriots), the "Cretan Syndrome"[2], you can have a look. I used Sotos Ktorides work, but Niyazi Kizilyürek has a fine summury of it, which I include in the citation. I thought it might interest you! Cheers!Τζερόνυμο (talk) 19:17, 29 April 2018 (UTC)

  • Hi Τζερόνυμο. I don't currently have access to it, but I just checked and my local library has a copy of it apparently, so I might try to have a look if you need (worst case scenario: it will be quite easy for me access it when I'm in Cyprus, which should be in a couple of months). But having a brief look at Google Books, I found this passage from the book, which is probably what you are looking for: "Fuat Hussein Kafadar was 19 and lived in Tochni, known by the Turks as Tashkent, roughly halfway between Limassol and Larnaca. He told me his story. "At about 11 in the morning of August 14, the day the Turks started their second offensive, all the men were rounded up by armed Greek Cypriots. Some of them were from our or neighbouring villages. We were taken to the Greek primary school, where there were some mainland Greek officers." However, I should note that Gibbons isn't really a reliable source by himself. His book very much reads like Turkish nationalist propaganda, there is no evidence that such a journalist was actually active with the Daily Express in that period, and the supposed publisher of the book, Charles Bravos, doesn't really stand much scrutiny, let's say. The book does contain a number of valuable pieces of oral history as well as references to that period's newspapers, but the oral history should be used with caution, e.g. when validated by being cited in a reliable secondary source like Drousiotis. This link sort of proves the point about the book's unreliability.
  • However, his interview in this case appears to be valuable as the survivor gave similar interviews to many sources. [cyprus-mail.com/2017/06/15/sole-survivor-1974-tochni-massacre-firing-ten-minutes/ This] article would probably be of interest to you. Kafadar, the same survivor, makes a similar statement: "A Greek officer then appeared, telling them not to be afraid." And here, he has a much more detailed interview with Sevgül Uludağ in Turkish, and Uludağ is a bicomunally and internationally respected, absolutely reliable journalist. The quotation is: "Okulun içindeyken – ki esir olarak gittik – üç yıldızlı bir Yunanlı asker geldi, adam geldi bir konuşma yaptı. Dedi ki “Arkadaşlar hiç korkmayın, bugün siz esirsanız, yarın da biz esir olabiliriz. Askerlikte esirlere kötü muamele yapılmaz” diye bir şeylerden bahsetti, belli yani asker olduğu. Adam çekti gitti." I will translate it for convenience: "When we were at the school - and we went there as a prisoner - a mainland Greek officer with three stars [on his insignia] came, that man gave a speech to us. He said, "My friends, have no fear at all, if you are prisoners now, we could be prisoners tomorrow. In military, there is no mistreatment to prisoners". He spoke of such things, and I mean it was obvious that he was a [professional] soldier. Then he went away."
  • Regarding the origin of T/Cs, I am taking the liberty of leaving my comment on that up until when I have more free time. And thank you very much for the source on the Cretan syndrome. I am hoping to personally get a copy of Kızılyürek's book on the development of nationalism in Cyprus as well as Bülent Evre's detailed analysis of the development of Turkish nationalism in Cyprus in the future, but oh well, can't much about that at the moment. --GGT (talk) 22:36, 29 April 2018 (UTC)

Thanks GGT for your insight on Gibbons. I knew that he was not neutral, but I didnt know that he was reliable on facts either. Certainly I dont wish to enter in this kind of uncertain territory... But it is still frustraiting that the book is missing from GC libraries. The interview in Cyprus Mail has been translated and reprinted in all major GC media. Caused sensation. The article in hanadisKibris seems very interesting and I ve already used it in the GC article on the massacre, thank's for the translation.

British Cyprus[edit]

Hey there. I am writing an article on British Cyprus for el.WP. Current article in el.WP is a stub. En.WP article is not much better. Here is it in my sandbox. Notice that in Sources, there is an empty section, which is Τουρκόφωνη meaning turkish literature. I am sure there are reliable secondary turkish sources on that period, and if you happen to know any, pls provide it with a bit summury that I can use in the article. I 'd be really grateful. Cheers. Τζερόνυμο (talk) 11:53, 21 June 2018 (UTC)

Hi Τζερόνυμο! Hope all is going well. Sorry, I haven't been active on en.wp for the past month. I checked out your work on British Cyprus on el.wp, and it looks great, congratulations for that, and I'll be hoping to use that as a basis for a future expansion of the English and Turkish-language articles. I myself haven't actually read a lot of scholarship produced in Turkish that covers the British period as a whole. I am aware of a translation of Tabitha Morgan's Sweet and Bitter Island: A History of the British in Cyprus; the original English work could be added to the Further Reading section. A brief search has revealed a two-volume work by Şükrü Sina Gürel, Kıbrıs tarihi, 1878-1960: kolonyalizm, ulusçuluk, ve uluslararası politika, published by Kaynak Yayınları, a reputable Turkish academic publisher. On the basis of the sheer scope of the work, it seems fit for the Further Reading section, although I will myself look into the book when I can get my hands on it. There is another that I have just found out about: Ahmet C. Gazioğlu, Kıbrıs Tarihi İngiliz Dönemi (1878-1960), Lefkoşa, 1997. I am familiar with Gazioğlu's work on Ottoman Cyprus, it was pretty solid for the time when it was published but has since been superseded by more professional scholarship; I do not know how that translates into his work on British Cyprus. Regarding more specific aspects: I can recommend adding to the Further Reading section Milliyetçilik Kıskacında Kıbrıs by Niyazi Kızılyürek (2002, İletişim Yayınları), which gives a good account of the genesis of nationalism in Cyprus and its development in the British period. There is also Kıbrıs Türk milliyetçiliği: oluşumu ve gelişimi by Bülent Evre (2004, Işık Kitabevi), which is a good account of the development of Turkish nationalism in Cyprus. I don't currently have access to any of these but I am familiar with them and can get hold of them pretty easily if you need help with any of these topics, I am myself thinking of working on those :) If you're looking for information on non-political areas, just let me know and I can hopefully provide you with anything you need on culture, literature, sports etc. --GGT (talk) 23:19, 7 July 2018 (UTC)

Tochni massacre[edit]

Merhaba καρντάσι(greek for kardaş). Have a look at the Tochni massacre. I created it recently and it's rather messy. If you can give a hand...I 'd be thankful. Τζερόνυμο (talk) 08:09, 13 September 2018 (UTC)

@Τζερόνυμο:, geia sou file mou! I hope that you’re well. Sorry, I just saw this message. I’ll be definitely contributing to that article pretty soon, happy to see your work again :) By the way, I’ll be paying a visit to the Turkish Cypriot State Library pretty soon, so if you’d like to make use of any sources on these lists, just drop a message on what you’re looking for and I’ll make sure I try and help you with that whilst I’m there. —GGT (talk) 00:34, 18 September 2018 (UTC)
Thanks mate. Well Cyprus:the untold stories by Sevgül Uludağ (070.4495693/ULU/05) 81192. It should be a great source! I just hope it's in English. And maybe Cyprus, 1963-64 by Aytuğ Plümer (956.9304/PLÜ/03), there is an en. edition. I am interested in the tCypriot narrative since it is unknown to the gCypriot people.
