China map[edit]

I reverted your addition of a second map to the info box. It already has one, doesn't need another (one could argue even one is excessive; of all the countries of the world China's one of the easiest to find that most people should know), while there's a detailed map for city locations further down in the article.--JohnBlackburnewordsdeeds 18:45, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

Oh sorry, didn't saw that one.--Janavar (talk) 19:46, 13 May 2014 (UTC)
Commons-emblem-notice.svg Please carefully read this information:

The Arbitration Committee has authorised discretionary sanctions to be used for pages regarding Armenia, Azerbaijan, or related conflicts, a topic which you have edited. The Committee's decision is here.

Discretionary sanctions is a system of conduct regulation designed to minimize disruption to controversial topics. This means uninvolved administrators can impose sanctions for edits relating to the topic that do not adhere to the purpose of Wikipedia, our standards of behavior, or relevant policies. Administrators may impose sanctions such as editing restrictions, bans, or blocks. This message is to notify you sanctions are authorised for the topic you are editing. Before continuing to edit this topic, please familiarise yourself with the discretionary sanctions system. Don't hesitate to contact me or another editor if you have any questions.

This message is informational only and does not imply misconduct regarding your contributions to date.


I've just reverted you - you removed material calling it "poorly referenced". It's a standard reference source, and university's use it because " this British weekly abstracting service has long been known as a "record of national and international current affairs with continually updated indexes." It's obvious you didn't check to find out what Keesing's is which makes it appear that you reverted material you didn't like without checking the source. Please be more careful in the future not to remove sourced material without a good reason. Thanks. Dougweller (talk) 18:28, 15 May 2014 (UTC)

Hi, which article do u mean?--Janavar (talk) 20:24, 15 May 2014 (UTC)

citation needed[edit]

You are going around adding citation needed to only Armenian related articles, why?Ninetoyadome (talk) 20:44, 15 May 2014 (UTC)

No, I don't. I add to where is required.--Janavar (talk) 20:49, 15 May 2014 (UTC) User:Chipmunkdavis already warned you in Nagorno-Karabakh Republic article.--Janavar (talk) 20:49, 15 May 2014 (UTC)
Kapan, Armenia, Yerevan, Gegharkunik Province‎, Karabakh. All Armenian related. Look at your history and its easy to say you only want citations on Armenian related articles. Also look at what you want citations for:
Kapan: Kapan was and remains a center of production of many non-ferrous metals. Commercial development of the local deposits began in 1890. Armenian entrepreneurs and French mining engineers obtained concessions to the copper mines and a copper-ore processing plant was built in the city.
-Prior to the Nagorno-Karabakh War, a small airfield was used to accommodate the aircraft YAK-40 and AN-14 cargo.
-The other nearest airport is Goris Airport located 62 km (39 mi) north of Kapan, near the town of Goris
For Yerevan you want a source for the number of nursery schools? Seriously?Ninetoyadome (talk) 21:28, 15 May 2014 (UTC)
Since I've been mentioned, I haven't warned anyone for anything, but it is true that in general citation needed tags are a good thing. They encourage the creation of articles based on stronger foundations. Numbers are especially important to cite. If someone changes that to 181 nursery schools, how would anyone know which is correct? CMD (talk) 00:23, 16 May 2014 (UTC)
Chipmunkdavis. In general this is correct, although we do say " all quotations and any material challenged or likely to be challenged must be attributed to a reliable, published source using an inline citation." In one case this editor both tagged a section and then added tags to some statements but not all, so I removed those as redundant. If an editor does this to only Armenian related articles then they can expect to be blocked under discretionary sanctions. Deleting well sourced material on the basis of it being not notable enough is unacceptable and can also lead to a block even without the sanctions. Repeatedly reverting is also something that can get this editor blocked. The removal of material from an academically accepted reliable source at Azerbaijan is the edit I am referring to above in my section on sources. Even if it was a poor source we don't simply remove material in that way. Again I repeat this is an area where Discretionary Sanctions exist and this appears to be part of a pattern of behavior. Dougweller (talk) 04:58, 16 May 2014 (UTC)
Dougweller I was responding only to the edit I saw and was mentioned due to, where no information was removed. If things were removed then what I said wouldn't apply I personally favour a bit of redundancy than no tags, because as I said, through encouraging the adding of references, citation needed tags lead to an improved article. CMD (talk) 00:22, 17 May 2014 (UTC)
OK, Dougweller I will take you point and shall contact you, if I see someone violating like that. --Janavar (talk) 08:50, 16 May 2014 (UTC)
And you will be blocked if you do show such a pattern of behavior. Perhaps you didn't get my point. Dougweller (talk) 11:59, 16 May 2014 (UTC)
