Please explain...[edit] this is a synthesis. Thanks. --Mttll (talk) 01:44, 15 July 2013 (UTC)

The study involved less than 0.3% of the population, and Circassians are not evenly distributed around Turkey in a way that would enable such a study to accurately reflect their numbers. Irānshahr (talk) 15:19, 15 July 2013 (UTC)
So? Do you realize it's based on a field research while other sources which are presently referenced in the article are nothing but guesstimates? --Mttll (talk) 02:38, 18 July 2013 (UTC)
All other sources put the figure at between 1,500,000 and 3,000,000. Post a link to the study so I can evaluate it. Irānshahr (talk) 03:04, 18 July 2013 (UTC)
Go to "4. Who are we?" tab, then download "Who Are We? Social Structure Survey" at the bottom. --Mttll (talk) 23:55, 18 July 2013 (UTC)
So anyone who wants to read the report has to give their name, phone number, place of work, and email address. That is not free and open access. For that and other reasons I oppose the inclusion of this source as a reference, and I note that I am the second fourth editor to do so. The balance of sources places the figure in the range mentioned above. Irānshahr (talk) 06:28, 19 July 2013 (UTC)
What's next, are you going disqualify dozens of scientific journals from being used as sources in Wikipedia as they don't provide "open" access? Sorry, that doesn't make sense. --Mttll (talk) 05:27, 20 July 2013 (UTC)
The company behind the "study" was founded and is run by a Turkish Kemalist politician. The numbers it proposes for all non-Turkish ethnic minorities are ludicrously low. The figure in question is an order of magnitude smaller than the bottom end of the range reported by all other agencies. Irānshahr (talk) 12:40, 21 July 2013 (UTC)
Like I said, it's the only source that is actually based on a field research. While it's superior to other sources, I'm not insisting on removing other sources. Whereas you want to remove it because the company behind it was founded and run by a Turk? A company operating in Turkey was founded and is run by a Turk? Oh the horror! --Mttll (talk) 18:23, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

Please visit my talk page. I need to discuss a topic with you on there.[edit]

I just wanted to say that I am sorry if I have aggravated you or bothered you at all on any topic that we have discussed. I do not mean to be annoying, but I would like for you to visit my talk page and comment on my latest topic. I made a new topic on my talk page and I would like to know your thoughts about it. It is a questionare! :D Keeby101 (talk) 16:08, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

Hey Iranshahr, do you have a minute to talk.[edit]

As you might have known, I had given the whole Sassanid Empire map dispute a rest for a few days. I actually wanted to talk to you about the Safavid/Afsharid Empire. I have been thinking of proposing an idea of merging the Safavid Empire and Afsharid Empire articles into one article as they are for the most part the same empire given the fact that Nadir Shah took over the Safavid Empire in a coup d'état and declared himself shah of Iran. What do you think? Keeby101 (talk) 03:04, 27 July 2013 (UTC)


Hi, thanks for you "Thanks". Could you provide the name in Persian here.--Kathovo talk 17:23, 27 July 2013 (UTC)

I owe you an apology.[edit]

I hope I am not bothering you right now, but taking a look back at your talk page I had noticed that I bugged you a lot and on some topics you never responded to at all. With that being said, I am extremely sorry for bothering you. I hope we are not enemies. In fact, I simply wanted your assistance on that grand proposal of mine. It is a pretty good idea and I wanted to know your thoughts; whether you oppose or support merging those 2 articles into one, but again if I am bothering you then I am sorry and you do not have to respond to this thread if you do not want to. Peace ☮ Keeby101 (talk) 07:02, 11 August 2013 (UTC)

List of countries by Persian-speaking population[edit]

Check my talk page if you don't remember the discussion regarding List of countries by Persian-speaking population. Chitooribah talk 08:39, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

Just wanted to know your thoughts on a rather old topic.[edit]

It's been awhile since I have reviewed this topic and almost a half a month since I went on to the talk page of that article. I recently made a request on the Wikipedia Map Workshop for a new map of the Sasanian Empire and when I did so, I told them the entire story and they took a look at all of the discussions and debates on the talk page of the article including the most recent one that was started by me when I was a new user on Wikipedia. They then proceeded to tell me to do the following:

  • Start a new, calm, well thought out discussion on the article talk page for just this purpose, contribute your own position, and let other editors contribute theirs.
  • If you can achieve a proper consensus amongst editors as to exactly what this map should show, then link this request to that consensus.

So I did exactly as they asked. Here is the link to the new discussion if you wish to partake:

Please share your thoughts there. Regards and Cheers! :D Keeby101 (talk) 04:32, 27 August 2013 (UTC)

P.S. I am not edit warring btw. Also, I saw that you put an awesome map of the Achaemenid Empire in the infobox of that article and I wanted to reach a consensus on the Sasanian Empire talk page so that the Cartographers on the Wikipedia Map Workshop will make a new map of the Sasanian Empire that looks very similar to the infobox map of the Achaemenid Empire in the sense of the format and quality as well as the showing of the territorial evolution of the empire itself.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Asian 10,000 Challenge invite[edit]

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Asia/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge and Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like South East Asia, Japan/China or India etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. At some stage we hope to run some contests to benefit Asian content, a destubathon perhaps, aimed at reducing the stub count would be a good place to start, based on the current Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon which has produced near 200 articles in just three days. If you would like to see this happening for Asia, and see potential in this attracting more interest and editors for the country/countries you work on please sign up and being contributing to the challenge! This is a way we can target every country of Asia, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant! Thank you. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 04:53, 20 October 2016 (UTC)
