IP sock?[edit]

This article have vandalised again. Another ip sock? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:41, 5 February 2016 (UTC)

New sock(s) are active on R1a. User Gushtasp (talk · contribs), a new user breaking WP:SYNTH policy is likely Tirgil34— Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:05, 14 February 2016 (UTC)

Noticed this because R1a is on my watchlist. Worked on it many years ago. The two protagonists do not seem to have active talk pages, and it would be good to see them use the article talkpage. I could well be that both of them have a point, as the article has not been well updated for a long time and it is a fast moving field. In such situations, synth, or seeming synth, is certainly worth being careful of. But it is not possible to judge this based on lots of reverts. Please feel free to paste this comment on the talkpage, anyone, in order to try to start discussion.--Andrew Lancaster (talk) 17:41, 14 February 2016 (UTC)
@Andrew Lancaster: lf that dubious user's edits were against the WP:SYNTH policy and conflict with the mainstream view-"R1a is not related to indo-european speakers"-, he is the person who should use the talk page. Tirgil34 is a long term abuser who vandalised (and vandalising) the wikipedia for years and R1a was one of his main targets. (talk) 17:48, 14 February 2016 (UTC)
PS: my reason of revert in addition to concerns regarding Tirgil. And i think that's enough for today. l have reported him admins and other users, they will decide about it. Regards... (talk) 18:17, 14 February 2016 (UTC)

Moxica's supposed precolumbian asian expeditions[edit]

Hi Krakkos,

I was reading the page on Adrián de Moxica that you started, and was interested in the claim "In 1481-1483 and 1485-1488 he led Spanish expeditions in India and the Middle East. The purpose of these expeditions was to establish connections with Indian merchants the Ottoman Empire in order to secure the Spanish throne access to Asian luxury goods. Although Moxica wrote of his success in various letters to the Spanish King Ferdinand II of Aragon, the expeditions did not lead to any notable results."

I'm a bit skeptical of this as I can't find any sources about it, and Irving Washington, who you cite, doesn't mention it. Is there a source for this? Thermocycler (talk) 13:51, 22 February 2016 (UTC)

@Thermocycler: The article is primarily based on the one in Danish wikipedia. If you find information which cannot be verified then feel free to remove it. Krakkos (talk) 21:31, 22 February 2016 (UTC)

Great thanks, I'll contact the Danish author. Thermocycler (talk) 22:56, 22 February 2016 (UTC)

Right they didn't respond so have removed it from English + Danish versions. Thermocycler (talk) 20:31, 29 February 2016 (UTC)

@Thermocycler: Ok, no problem. Krakkos (talk) 18:36, 2 March 2016 (UTC)


Hello Krakkos, do you think it is possible to add Mariandynis to the List of ancient peoples of Anatolia? Just an info: today, in the region there is a people group in term "Manav". Thanks~for help Manaviko (talk) 07:46, 6 March 2016 (UTC)

Yes, i have added it now. Krakkos (talk) 12:32, 12 March 2016 (UTC)

Targeted articles[edit]

Hi. It seems User:Tirgil34's targets are not limited and he's a hardcore anti-Iranian/anti-Persian who attacked many Persian/Iranian-related articles. For example, one of his socks User:Barayev was very active on Rumi and its talk page. I think he damaged many other articles. What do you think? --Zyma (talk) 11:59, 20 April 2016 (UTC)

@Zyma: You are definately correct. For example, Lamedumal, one of his most active socks, barely edited Central Asian topics at all, but rather racial theories, Middle Eastern politics etc. As can be seen from his Youtube and TheApricity accounts, see WP:Tirgil34, Tirgil34 is very interested in Iran-Azerbaijan issues. I'm certain that although editing Central Asian topics became difficult after we exposed him, he is still very active in socking on Iran-Azerbaijan-related topics and other articles. Be vigilant! Krakkos (talk) 14:57, 21 April 2016 (UTC)
Yes. As I said before he and his friends are very active on racialist websites (e.g. The Apricity) and several other forums. For example, this recent forum-like edit on Turanism is very similar to their posts on the apricity. Also, their endless rants on WP talk pages match with their posts on those forums. Add that article to your watchlist. I agree with you. He never abandon WP, because he has a nationalistic agenda. I may update his long-term abuse case. --Zyma (talk) 15:14, 21 April 2016 (UTC)
@Zyma: Please feel free to update the LTA. I've been intending to update it myself with information from the Egaplaicesp case, but administrators seem to be too lazy to recognize Egaplaicesp as a Tirgil34 sock. Krakkos (talk) 15:21, 21 April 2016 (UTC)
OK, I wait for your update and then I will edit case. I just want to add some additional info about his activity outside WP. I guess this guy and some of his friends paid by their govs or they work for a organized group (e.g. Grey Wolves). Did you see what he promotes on his youtube channel? I don't know why admins think he's a typical troll. That guy uses internet to spread pseudo-history, a modern version of Sun Language Theory + strong hatred against Iranians and Europeans. --Zyma (talk) 15:37, 21 April 2016 (UTC)
@Zyma: I agree. It's very dismaying to watch the amount of time admins spend on obvious trolling vandals. Tirgil34 and his friends' sophisticated fringe promotion, both in terms of content and method, is far more dangerous to Wikipedia. Krakkos (talk) 15:42, 21 April 2016 (UTC)

Your niche[edit]

Hi Krakkos, I believe that this is more your niche of expertise. There's something definetely fishy going on with these users and their editorial pattern in particular. Both give me certain Escoperloit vibes.[1][2] Bests - LouisAragon (talk) 04:19, 8 August 2016 (UTC)
