Picture upload request[edit]

Hi there. I found this picture, Image:Bourj Hammoud01.jpg, and I learnt that you posted it for Wikipedia. I am yet to create Arabic and Simple English articles for Bourj Hammoud, so I wish to urgently ask if you could make the picture "common" - or available at all time. You can do that by uploading it to this website:

But, of course, you'd need to obtain a Wikimedia.org account. Thanks a lot. - Omar 180 12:17, 21 June 2007 (UTC)

Zvartnots Cathedral[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Zvartnots Cathedral, and it appears to be very similar to another wikipedia page: Zvartnots. It is possible that you have accidentally duplicated contents, or made an error while creating the page— you might want to look at the pages and see if that is the case.

This message was placed automatically, and it is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article and it would be appreciated if you could drop a note on the maintainer's talk page. CorenSearchBot (talk) 10:36, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

RE: Energy in Armenia[edit]

Բարեւ Serouj, thanks for the links. It's a great model for Armenia to follow so long as we learn from their problems.

Too bad the Renewable Energy in Armenia site is down, would've been very useful and interesting to see what other steps Armenia is taking to become less dependent on outdated energy sources like gas and oil. I hope the Danes will release the information soon. In the meantime, I found this. I was actually pleasantly surprised myself to see that Armenia's got a wind farm, albeit a small one... the one which you snapped a picture of. And the geothermal plant is just great news as well. Hopefully, the sources are accurate. - Fedayee (talk) 18:55, 1 November 2008 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Social issues in Armenia[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Social issues in Armenia, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process because of the following concern:

Social issues in Armenia

All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because, even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

removed references[edit]

Serouj,

The references that I removed were either not relevant or very remotely relevant to the sentence that they were referencing, and were placed there primarily for promotional reasons. In each case I provided a more relevant link. -Սահակ/Sahak (talk) 14:09, 26 November 2008 (UTC)

You are doing a "Sneaky vandalism"[edit]

Modification of the original source based on what you think is injection of POV. We go with what the source says. Removing the Kurdish Genocide, though listed in the original source, is a "Sneaky vandalism." --Ahmetsaatalti (talk) 01:01, 21 December 2008 (UTC)

What "original source" are you talking about with your proposed "Kurdish Genocide" that you claim occurred contemporaneously with the Armenian Genocide? I have yet to come across a reputable academic source which claims a Kurdish Genocide at the same time of the Armenian, Pontic Greek, and Assyrian genocides. If anything, there is evidence of Kurdish involvement in the massacres of the above peoples during the genocide. Your intra-wiki link to Kurdish Genocide on the Armenian Genocide page will be removed. Thanks. Serouj (talk) 03:00, 21 December 2008 (UTC)

The last sentence of the first paragraph cites the article: Schaller, Dominik J. and Zimmerer, Jürgen (2008) 'Late Ottoman genocides: the dissolution of the Ottoman Empire and Young Turkish population and extermination policies – introduction', Journal of Genocide Research, 10:1, 7–14. This article references the first three genocides that is stated in the article which I guess you have not problem with. But the original text do not stop with the first three and continues with the one you reject. You are selecting what to include and what to reject from the article. This is "Sneaky vandalism." The evidence you are asking is in the article. --Ahmetsaatalti (talk) 03:08, 21 December 2008 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image (File:The Armenian Genocide (2006 film poster).jpg)[edit]

You've uploaded File:The Armenian Genocide (2006 film poster).jpg, and indicated that it's used under Wikipedia's rules for non-free images. However, it's not presently used in any articles. Wikipedia policy requires that non-free images be either used or deleted, so if this image isn't used in an article in the next week, it will be deleted.

պ, տ, կ in Armenian[edit]

Hi. I noticed you changed the pronunciation of these consonants in Eastern Armenian to ejectives. However, those are not ejectives but plain voiceless consonants, like Russian п, т, к. Hear this ejective here. I'm sure you've never heard an Armenian making that sound. At least not the ones speaking literary Eastern Armenian or Ararat valley dialect. Anyway, I'm going to change the pronunciations in Eastern Armenian and Armenian alphabet when I have time, just wanted to let you know. --Vahagn Petrosyan (talk) 20:24, 12 April 2009 (UTC)

Pronunciation of ռ in Western Armenian[edit]

Hey, another question. How do you pronounce ռ in Western Armenian? Is it really an alveolar tap? Then don't you distinguish between ր and ռ? Because in Eastern Armenian ր is an alveolar tap and ռ is an alveolar trill. --Vahagn Petrosyan (talk) 22:13, 12 April 2009 (UTC)

Bana Cathedral[edit]

Hi Serouj! That's an interesting subject. I think I will create it soon on wk:fr. Moreover, I will use Donabédian, who commented on the building. Sardur (talk) 23:16, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

Donabédian has Banak has well. Sardur (talk) 07:06, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

Hello Serouj. I noticed your clash with an ip over the Bana cathedral article. While the anon was incorrect when eliminating the Armenian origin of the church, Bana’s Georgian renovators should also be mentioned. I don’t know whether your sources speak of its Georgian connections, but I can provide you with the sources, including those by Armenian authors, about how Bana was restored by the Georgian Bagratids from Arab devastation in the 9th century and then was a venue for coronation of a couple of Georgian monarchs. I think we can cooperate and improve the article. I’m also suggesting renaming the article back to Bana, for its being the most frequently used name in both Armenian and Georgian sources. Best, KoberTalk 18:53, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

Hi Serouj! Actually, Donabédian, while recognising the Armenian type of the cathedral, disagrees on its dating:

"Rangée par quelques auteurs parmi les constructions du VIIe siècle, elle est en réalité précisément datée par un témoignage historique (chronique géorgienne du XIe siècle) du règne du prince Adrnérsé II (881-923) et rien n'autorise à mettre en doute cette datation."
Patrick Donabédian, L'âge d'or de l'architecture arménienne, Parenthèses, Marseille, 2008, ISBN 978-2-86364-172-9, p. 199.

Sardur (talk) 05:46, 15 May 2009 (UTC)


Your thoughts are offensive, If I wanted something to change, I'd do so, without being anonymous! The only change I made to "Banak Cathedral" is the move to Bana Cathedral over redirect. That's all! I don't understand who gave you right to name the article “Banak”?! If you agree with Kober about restoration of the Cathedral, after which Armenians are unrelated to it, then it must be named Bana!--Rastrelli F (talk) 05:55, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

About template[edit]

I just feel it would better to combine the two, because the 'History of the Armenian Language' can only go as far as literally describing the history of the Armenian language. By combining the two, people can not only find the history of the language, but also links to other articles describing grammar, orthography, etc. Consider it, and just a personal note, I think a template like the one I created is larger and more eye-catching. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Montyofarabia (talkcontribs) 06:38, 29 May 2009 (UTC)

To Seruj

As you can check, radio station Radio Free Europe has already taken out the offending words addressed to Gagik Tsarukyan. Even more, newspaper “Haykakan Zhamanak”(from which Radio Free Europe radio station took the source and translated the information into English) also has taken out these offending words from its archive text(You can check it easily, the text is in Armenian). So after this I think you should delete the nickname addressed to Gagik Tsarukyan. (Otherwise I can do it myself) Thank You for attention.

Hey there. I've provided an alternative link as well as the quote from the article. I don't see what your problem with the nickname is, as it is a widely used nickname and it is reasonable to have it in this article. Serouj (talk) 16:16, 24 June 2009 (UTC)
Hey, So you should distinguish that one thing is nickname, another thing is the OFFENDING nickname. According to Wikipedia rules, you cant use offending, and also non-formal words. The nickname you mantioned is not only Non-formal word, but also an offending one.Lenagroup (talk) 06:28, 25 June 2009 (UTC)
Let's understand the situation dear Serouj. One thing is nickname(Margaret Thetcher-iron lady) BUT another thing is offending nickname with slang words. Even more, ArmeniaNow media(the one to that Serouj posted the link) already edited the article. What I want to tell, is that I think all self-respectful Armenian medias would edit this horrible slang addressed to Gagik Tsarukyan if they know that it will serve as link to Wikipedia. Right now, dear Serouj, please understand that no matter what kind of political views you have. No one has the right to harm other person.

Its in our daily language, we dont notice we say "ayd banen "ARAR", yes "ARAM", ed banen "ARA" you see? Monlonet (talk) 20:05, 2 August 2009 (UTC)

Church templates[edit]

The Armenian church templates are getting too big. There are so many Armenian churches and structures in the countries listed that they could each receive a template (with both historical/contemporary included). Or perhaps they can be divided by region (ex. historical Armenian churches in Europe). TA-ME (talk) 08:22, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

Yes, we need to think of something. See the templates talk page. We can first divide into three categories: Middle Ages, Early Modern, and Modern. We might be able to do even better: Antiquity (upto 500 AD), Early Middle Ages (500 to 1000), High Middle Ages (1000 to 1300), Late Middle Ages (1300 to 1500), Early modern (1500 to 1800), and Modern (1800 to present). This should significantly reduce the list in each (although if a church was renovated later on, it should appear in the corresponding template again...) Serouj (talk) 08:29, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

Duduk page changes[edit]

Certain people have changed [3] the duduk page and put Turkish origins, and even removed other visual examples of Gasparyan's links above. Also, the right side where it said "Traditional Armenian Instrument" is removed and added Turkish info. Is there anyway you can help out? They have locked the page. 76.232.252.185 (talk) 17:44, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

Can you help out on the Duduk page? They keep reverting Eupator and my edits back to what it was before. They remove the Armenian info and put Turkish. Please help out here. Everybody knows, even non-Armenians that Duduk is Armenian. Specially from the 2000 movie Gladiator by Gasparyan. Monlonet (talk) 18:26, 19 August 2009 (UTC)

Why arent you helping with the Duduk page? Putting Turkish origins isnt vandalism? They are even removing the template of Armenian Duduk. Monlonet (talk) 16:26, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

Where is mosque in Armenia?[edit]

Where is mosque in Armenia?--85.100.42.44 (talk) 16:09, 14 November 2009 (UTC) List of mosques in Armenia?--85.100.42.44 (talk) 16:10, 14 November 2009 (UTC)

There aren't many in Armenia proper, since Armenia proper didn't have a large Muslim population since at least 100 years. There aren't any ancient mosques in Armenia, either, although you can find some preserved funerary monuments. Furthermore, just like urban Armenian churches were destroyed during Soviet times, so, too, probably were some mosques destroyed by the Soviets. Many of the Armenian churches in both Turkey and in Armenia date from the 4th-8th centuries, long before any Muslims invaded the Armenian plateau. The large number of Armenian churches in Istanbul is the evidence of a thriving Western Armenian community (Constantinople was the cultural center of the Western Armenian world; you can similarly find over 32 Armenian churches in Tbilisi, Georgia, which was the cultural center of the Eastern Armenian community). In contrast, Yerevan has always been a small town until the 1920s when it became the capital city of Armenia. Therefore, it's no surprise that there are both few Armenian churches and few mosques in the city. Many of the churches in Yerevan were built after the fall of the Soviet Union. Hope that clarifies things a bit. Serouj (talk) 18:26, 14 November 2009 (UTC)

Historical Armenia[edit]

Ok Serouj, I agree with the proposed definition, but what I meant with the word "ancient", is that Ararat has been part of the Armenian Highland since the very old ages Kevorkmail (talk) 17 December 2009.

Serouj, you didn't reply to my message and my email. One question: if the church was built after 1700 but later ruin, for instance ruined by Beria order in 30s, can it be considered Contemporary? 517design (talk) 09:57, 24 January 2010 (UTC)

Yes, I think if it was in use after 1700, it's contemporary, no matter that it was destroyed later. Serouj (talk) 19:26, 24 January 2010 (UTC)

Hello, Serouj. I want to make an article about one church in Arapgir. I can't find the name. I found about it here, but it says "Arapkir Ana Kilisesi" (means "the main church of Arapgir"). I can't find the name of this church. Can you help me? Thank you.--Hovik95 (talk) 20:39, 30 January 2010 (UTC)

Here. I found the name of the church is St. Asdvadzadzin. I created an article Cathedral of Arapgir. Please help me to improve it. This church really was one of the biggest Armenian churches in the Western Armenia. --Hovik95 (talk) 23:51, 8 February 2010 (UTC)

Church of the Holy Mother of God of the Mens Monastery[edit]

Hi Serouj. I want to discuss the name of this church. In Russian sources this church is called "Ванкский собор" (Vank Cathedral), in Armenian sources its called "Թիֆլիսի հայոց վանք" (The Armenian Catherdal of Tiflis). But I never founded something like Church of the Holy Mother of God of the Mens Monastery. --Hovik95 (talk) 14:08, 13 February 2010 (UTC)

See my reference: Thierry, Jean-Michel (1989) Armenian Art. New York: Harry N. Abrams. p. 586 ISBN 0-8109-0625-2 Serouj (talk) 18:03, 13 February 2010 (UTC)
Ok Serouj. I will, but I have one question "Church of the Holy Mother of God of the Mens Monastery". How come the name have both a church and a monastery. Maybe it's just a "Monastery of Holy Mother of God of the Mens" --Hovik95 (talk) 20:23, 13 February 2010 (UTC)
Because it's the church of the monastery (i.e. the monastery's church). Again, see the reference. It's a popular reference book of Armenian art. Serouj (talk) 00:08, 14 February 2010 (UTC)

Tsitsernavank Monastery[edit]

The information that you have posted in that article is totally wrong. It contains information leading illegal land claiming of one country to another. I sincerely ask you not to write down falsified armenian names on Azerbaijan-related articles. As far as I know, such actions are prohibited in Wikipedia. If you continue to do vandalism in Azerbaijan-related articles, I will have no option but to complain about your activities to the main administration of Wikipedia. Regards, User:Verman1

You're very comic Verman1. Fortunately, for Wikipedia, the obscure Azeri websites that you cite do not meet Wikipedia's standard as sources; they outright try to rewrite the history of the region by claiming the whole area as "Caucasian Albania" when in fact Caucasian Albani lied not in the Armenian Highland, but in the flatlands of what is now Azerbaijan, east of the Kura River. The mountainous area has always been Armenia... Check your facts and don't believe the propaganda of your own country and government. Serouj (talk) 08:07, 21 February 2011 (UTC)

I kindly ask you not to interfere to articles related to Azerbaijan. Falsified armenian history can have citations in Armenian articles, not in Azerbaijani articles. Otherwise I will have no choice but to complain about your activities to site administration. ~~User:Verman1~~ —Preceding undated comment added 11:43, 20 February 2011 (UTC).

Ok don't worry about that. I will do my promise.

For your informaton, Caucasian Albania as a state was extinct in 7th century, together with Armenia. But Caucasian Albanian church continued to operate actively until 19th century, when this church was forcibly annexed to Armenian Apostol Church. This was illegal annexation, it had no basis, as there was no link between Caucasian Albanian and Armenian churches. User:Verman1

Hello Serouj. I thunk you may be interested that some georgian ultra nationalists are trying to show that Banak cathedral, and not Bana is georgian, which is a well known Armenian church. They're edit waring with everyone, could you look? Thanks! P.S. They're also trying to remove The template Armenian churches.--91.204.190.23 (talk) 16:39, 29 August 2011 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for August 19[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Teghut Mine, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Lori (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Armenian Pantheon of Tbilisi[edit]

Kober has just scattergunned this article with numerous citation required and page numbers required tags, probably as a prelude to deleting the content. I don't have access to "The State Policy of Georgia and the Monuments of Armenian Culture" book so I was wondering if you did. Meowy 11:46, 20 August 2012 (UTC)

Found a PDF copy of the Armenian-language edition here. http://raa.am/BOOK_2/Girqamboxg.pdf Meowy 18:41, 20 August 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for the reply on my talk page. For that article, all that is really needed just now is the page numbers in the book that deal with the cemetery. I can't read Armenian so don't know where in the book this content is (except for the photo descriptions at the end which are in English). Kober's tags are asking for a page reference for each thing, but I think all that is needed is to have a single reference with the range of page numbers in the book. I'm also wondering if this (a source which was deleted by Kober) is taken from a book rather than written by the anonymous site owner: http://pandukht.livejournal.com/8959.html. There are actually another 13 or so parts to it, spread out over several months of posts on that site. In the comments part of it someone asked what the source was, what its copyright status was - but the site owner did not answer (which suggests it is not his own work).

Armenian alphabet[edit]

Hey, Serouj. I've been doing some major editing on the above-linked article, and I thought I'd get the primary contributor's opinion on my edits. Would you mind telling me what you think of my revisions? Pokajanje|Talk 17:19, 16 October 2012 (UTC)

Armenian Alphabet edit[edit]

I wanted to make an edit to the Armenian alphabet Wiki page, but I really am not enough of an authority to do it with confidence. This is what I think may be wrong: in the section 'The Alphabet', the entry for Ղ ղ has the IPA symbol /ɫ/ listed for its Classical Armenian pronunciation. From the other references I have seen (including the Armenian Orthography Wiki entry), the pronunciation should be the same for Classical, Western, and Eastern Armenian, namely: /ʁ/. Actually, I couldn't even find ɫ listed as a symbol in the IPA so I'm not sure where that came from. If this is indeed a mistake, it would be great if you could fix it. Or just let me know and I will do it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hagopi1611 (talkcontribs) 12:11, 20 July 2013 (UTC)

Hi Hagop, no, with regard to the letter Ղ there is no mistake. In Classical Armenian, the letter was pronounced similar to L. (e.g. Jerusalem -> Yerusalem --> Երուսաղէմ) Thanks for double-checking before making an edit. Best wishes, Serouj (talk) 09:57, 28 July 2013 (UTC)
Hi Serouj, Thanks for your reply! In that case, there may need to be a CA/EA/WA distinction added to the ղ entry on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Traditional_Armenian_orthography. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hagopi1611 (talkcontribs) 10:40, 28 July 2013 (UTC)

Armenian help needed[edit]

Hello Serouj, I'm contacting you because we need some Armenian translators to help with the deployment of the new VisualEditor on hy.wikipedia. There are help pages, user guides, and description pages that need translating, as well as the interface itself. The translating work is going on over on MediaWiki: Translation Central. I also need assistance with a personal message for the Armenian Wikipedians. If you are able to help in any way, either reply here, or head over to TranslationCentral.

Hrazdan Hydro Power Plant[edit]

Hi, Serouj. Back in 2008, you redirected Razdan Hydro Power Plant to Atarbekyan Hydro Power Plant. I wonder if the correct name should be Hrazdan Hydro Power Plant. There are number of articles in Internet about Hrazdan Hydro Power Plant; however, I cant find any sources in English about the Atarbekyan Hydro Power Plant, other than wiki or its derivatives. Could you please clarify this? The same applies to redirecting the Argel Hydro Power Plant to the Gyumush Hydroelectric Power Station. It seems that in English the name Argel is more common than Gyumush. Beagel (talk) 17:13, 13 December 2015 (UTC)

Hi Beagel, Hrazdan and Argel refer to the closest cities or towns to the said power plants. It may be that the other names (Atarbekyan and Gyumush) were more prominent during Soviet times, and since then the city / town names have taken precedent. Serouj (talk) 10:45, 30 December 2015 (UTC)
