Brenda Shaffer's ridiculous claims[edit]

Salam dadash. Azerbaijanis & Iranian Azerbaijanis data is wrong. Brenda Shaffer is a paid author and her works are not legit. For instance she claims Mashhad has a large Turkmen population and the protests in Karaj is result of Azeri! Read the linked thread please. You and other wikipedia members should not promote her and her works. mer30 & khodafez. (talk) 06:54, 14 May 2018 (UTC)

@ Salâm. I don't really remember editing those articles or giving any reference to her.
But thank you for telling. I'll take that into consideration.
Why don't you become a member and do something about it?

One thousand and one nights[edit]

Hey Rye-96, could you please give me your opinion about these edits please : [1] (removal of "one thousand and one nights" in Persian) and [2] (as far as i know, Shahriyar is a Persian name and is written in Persian, with the Perso-Arabic script, this is not an Arabic name). I asked for a clarification on the talk page and by the way, your insight would be also welcome there. Thanks. best regards.---Wikaviani (talk) 21:23, 14 June 2018 (UTC)

@Wikaviani: Oh, hey! Sorry for my late. Since this article is about the globally recognized version of the book that is originally written in Arabic, I don’t think we can add a Persian-language template for the title. We can add Persian templates for individual names, though. That would be seen as the origin of the terms and would certainly be reasonable.
Rye-96 (talk) 06:28, 11 August 2018 (UTC)
Actually, now that I’m thinking, if we could find a reliable source that would prove the Arabic title is based on an earlier Persian title, perhaps we could use the Persian title next to the Arabic title. I’m not sure, though; since the article is still about that specific Arabic version.

Your comment[edit]

has a reply at WP:AN. So This is just a courtesy ping, if you have not watchlisted the page after commenting. And you can choose to ignore my message on this talk page if you feel like. --DBigXray 19:50, 27 August 2018 (UTC)

@DBigXray: Oh, okay. Thanks for telling.
Rye-96 (talk) 19:57, 27 August 2018 (UTC)
You are welcome. Normally the reply should be made 'immediately' below the comment to which it is linked. This is to prevent the fragmentation/out of place comment. not sure why you chose to reply at the bottom. Also i see that the diff you presented is from march 2018 but is called as 2 year old?--DBigXray 13:47, 28 August 2018 (UTC)
@DBigXray: Hmm. I actually thought about it myself, too. But I thought I shouldn't put my comment before the more recent ones.
That's right. One of them is from March 2018, in an article that I have contributed to a lot. It appears to me that that admin fails to notice things that are contrary to what they would like to conclude.
Something similar happened here, regarding another issue related to NadirAli.
Rye-96 (talk) 14:12, 28 August 2018 (UTC)
No. That's completely ok, to put your reply directly below the comment to which it was addressed, so that a person reading the thread can understand. there were other people to who had a similar back and forth discussion. so you better move your comment to the appropriate place. If he failed to notice, you can Clearly point it out in the diff and mention the same that 2018 is not 2 year old. Regarding this FfD here, I am not familiar with the language so I couldn't really comment, but if you feel there is anything that the community should know abnout NADIR or his WP:CIR on this image then you can post it there. regards. --DBigXray 14:26, 28 August 2018 (UTC)
@DBigXray: Thank you. I moved it.
For now I think it's not necessary, but I will bring up about those issues when they were relevant again.

File:Dancers and musicians on a Sasanian bowl[edit]

I am interested in knowing more about the photo you submitted File:Dancers and musicians on a Sasanian bowl. (Thank you for submitting it!) Can you tell me where it is kept (a museum?). It reminds me very much of the Gandharan images from Central Asia, including File:Indo-GreekBanquet.JPG. Is there any chance you have a closeup of the person with the oud/barbat? I have been working on an article History of lute-family instruments in which the history of Persia, Central Asia and the later Arab and Persian civilization is significant. I have already put more than I should, of the "singing girls", but it seems to have been a large part of music and lute playing for a thousand years or more. Jacqke (talk) 05:30, 15 September 2018 (UTC)

@Jacqke: I honestly borrowed this image from someone on a random website, for when I was looking for a better example of Sasanian vessels with musicians depicted on them, like this one. I wasn’t aware by then, but it appears that this artifact is being traded on Sixbid. Not sure where it is kept at the moment, but it‘s probably not in a museum.
Rye-96 (talk) 12:07, 18 September 2018 (UTC)
Well, that's my story too, for a lot of the images I've collected. After the fact I decide maybe I'd like to know more, but can't find it again for an auction. Thank you! Jacqke (talk) 15:33, 18 September 2018 (UTC)
