DYK[edit]

Updated DYK query On 21 July, 2007, Did you know? was updated with a fact from the article Jews in Pagan Armenia, which you created or substantially expanded. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the Did you know? talk page.

Orion[edit]

So where did you find that image of Tigranes and Orion? The caption needs a source. Septentrionalis PMAnderson 02:50, 25 July 2007 (UTC)

Thanks, but you haven't answered what I really need to know (fair-use is not my concern); what is the source (author, title, date, and if possible page number) for the assertion that this is Tigranes and Orion? Septentrionalis PMAnderson 14:18, 25 July 2007 (UTC)
Do remember that most of us have no idea whether Gevork Nazaryan is a web-designer, an ancient historian, or a book title. He does not seem to have installed a search engine; I can get to his Encyclopedia, but where did you go from there? Septentrionalis PMAnderson 14:48, 25 July 2007 (UTC)

Please see my latest comment at Talk:Orion (mythology). Also, I have to ask you something significant on the image itself. Did Mr. Nazaryan actually take that photograph himself? Because it looks very much like it was scanned from somewhere...--Pharos 23:42, 28 July 2007 (UTC)

Cherkesogai[edit]

Hi! Please, check a spelling. Probably they are Cherkesohay, as I find them on the Russian wiki. (thereis nno differences between g and h in Russian). Thanks. --Üñţïf̣ļëŗ (see also:ә? Ә!) 21:23, 26 July 2007 (UTC)

Hi![edit]

Your recent revert removed additions to that article that were arrived at via the talk page through consensus. In particular, your change alters the assertion of Toynbee, misrepresenting his findings: Toynbee asserted that 600,00 died in 1915-1916 during deportations and massacres, but you've altered that assertion to suggest that Toynbee stated 600,00 Armenians died in the Armenian Genocide from 1914 to 1918--this is not true, in fact Toynbee's figure was describing only 1915 and 1916.

As per the talk page, the word "casualties" was removed because it implies that the dead were combatants, rather than non-combatants. The word "casualties" carries a revisionist connotation that should be avoided.

As per the intro, you should explain your logic. I find that to be even-handed, there can be a maximum described only if a minimum is described. If you disagree, I'd be interested to hear your logic and consider it.

Nice choice on your user page picture, it's quite beautiful. Cheers! DBaba 02:38, 27 July 2007 (UTC)

POV dispute[edit]

I've given him a final warning. If he continues, report him to WP:AIV. Best wishes/ Pax:Vobiscum 21:29, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

"Archive"?[edit]

Where is this so-called "archive" that you indicated in your edit summary when you removed several user warnings? I don't see a link to it. Trying to hide something? Realkyhick 19:41, 11 August 2007 (UTC)

Users who delete (not archive) speedy-delete messages and other warnings tend to have a a pattern of vandalism. They seem to try to hide their warnings in an effort to avoid progressive warnings. Simply moving material of any kind to an archive is just fine (I do it myself), but most users who do this have a link from their user talk page so that other editors can check for any concerns. I've seen a couple of other users who attempted to disguise outright deletion as archiving, so it's one of those little red flags that pops up. With you, it's apparently not an issue, but you would do well tp put the link to the archive page here somewhere. Just helps others to know you're working in good faith.
However, you did remove the speedy-delete tag from Artak Movsisyan, even after you placed the {{hangon}} tag there, so I'm placing the following user warning template here....
Information.svg Please do not remove speedy deletion notices from articles you have created yourself. Please use the {{hangon}} template on the page instead if you disagree with the deletion. Thank you. Realkyhick 20:32, 11 August 2007 (UTC)
It would help greatly to put ISBN numbers beside his book titles. If these books are sold on Amazon.com, those listings should have ISBN numbers. Wait, never mind — there's nothing listed for him there, I just checked. We could also use some other links about him, such as a newspaper, magazine or other publication where he may have been interviews or had a book reviewed. Basically, we just need a way to verify that he is who you say he is. Realkyhick 20:32, 11 August 2007 (UTC)
Another editor (an admin) has removed the speedy-delete notice. I am still considering whether or not to take this to a formal AfD discusion. Realkyhick 21:52, 11 August 2007 (UTC)
It's still not obvious, though it not obvious that he's not notable, either. We still need some independent, reliable sources that are about him, not just by him. Again, it is to shows that others recognize his notability, not just you. You will need to find the links and add them yourself. This page will show you how, if you're not familiar with the process. Realkyhick 21:58, 11 August 2007 (UTC)
I'm that other editor, & removed the speedy tag to give some time to find the necessary stuff, and gave the same advice as Realkyhick. For people who write books, I think the most obvious sources are reviews of the books. For these books, I might not be able to find them, but a librarian who knows the subject and the language could probably help. Incidentally, many non-US/UK books still do not have ISBNs, and most older ones in all languages. If you can find an OCLC or an LCCN, or other national library numerical identifier, that is a good substitute. another thing that really needs to be added is the date of publication. If the books were published in Armenian, why not add the titles in that script as well as transliteration, and give an English translation of the title as well --it helps the rest of us to see what they are about. DGG (talk) 22:40, 11 August 2007 (UTC)

Turks are the descendants of the anatolians[edit]

Why do you keep changing my turkish language additions to anatolia related texts.Who do you think you are? The most of the descendants of anatolians live in Turkey and today speak turkish so the turkish version of their names for sure must be included..i will include them later again if you dont correct your mistake..

Source?[edit]

Hi. Do you have scientific/reliable sources for that? If not it should not be in the article... (The given reference is neither scientific nor reliable, sorry.) --Thogo (Talk) 17:05, 12 August 2007 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Artak Movsisyan[edit]

Artak Movsisyan, an article you created, has been nominated for deletion. We appreciate your contributions.

Thank you. Realkyhick 00:03, 13 August 2007 (UTC)


White people / Black people article links[edit]

I've linked each of these articles to the other in their "see also" sections. You removed the former on the basis that one was the "complete opposite" of the other. This kind of view is exactly why I've linked them: I've now reinstated the link. -- The Anome 07:13, 5 August 2007 (UTC)

Notability of Arshak Chopanyan[edit]

Information icon.svg

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Arshak Chopanyan, by Nuttah68 (talk · contribs), another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Arshak Chopanyan seems to be about a person, group of people, band, club, company, or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not assert the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting Arshak Chopanyan, please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page. If the article has already been deleted, see the advice and instructions at WP:WMD. Feel free to contact the bot operator if you have any questions about this or any problems with this bot, bearing in mind that this bot is only informing you of the nomination for speedy deletion; it does not perform any nominations or deletions itself. --Android Mouse Bot 2 17:39, 9 August 2007 (UTC)

Removals[edit]

Regarding these edits: [1] This has been discussed. This is about Iranian peoples, not Iranian as in the nation of Iran. Who are you to deny the Iranian-ness of Kurds? Kurds are an Iranic people and they have contributed greatly to the history of the middle east and deserve to be recognized for that. A list of Iranian states and empires cannot be complete without the inclusion of the Kurdish kingdoms.Hajji Piruz 01:20, 10 August 2007 (UTC)

Martiros Kavoukjian[edit]

What this article needs is some documentation of his work, such as a list of books and some information from RSs about how important they are.DGG (talk) 11:12, 11 August 2007 (UTC)

Notability of Artak Movsisyan[edit]

Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that you can assert the notability of the subject, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the article's talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would confirm the subject's notability under Wikipedia guidelines.

IP vandal[edit]

Let me know if he hits any new articles, I don't have every Armenia-related article on my watchlist. --Golbez 21:53, 15 August 2007 (UTC)

I've blocked the ranges for 3 hours, that should calm things down. --Golbez 22:18, 15 August 2007 (UTC)

Ancient Arabia[edit]

Hi Vonones, The article is not related to the modern Arab nationalism. It simply mentions the people of Arabian origin. (the region) Just like Armenians are mentioned in the history of Cilicia. You understand what I mean?

The article discusses Ancient Arabia as a region. Elias is using Arabism as an excuse to get help from others in his vandalizing efforts? (look at his edit hstory, you wil see an extremist Assyrianist who doesn't recongnize the Arameans! or Syriacs or any other ancient history besides Assyria)

  • ofcourse any constructive help to improve the article will be appreciated. --Skatewalk 22:39, 15 August 2007 (UTC)

Vandalism warnings[edit]

Why you think its not vandalism ? please read more about WP:Vand. thanks Ammar (Talk - Don't Talk) 22:39, 15 August 2007 (UTC)
I wasnt trying to block him , but he was refusing to discuss , and denying all references. please don't add anything to that article and go to discussion page, please. Ammar (Talk - Don't Talk) 22:45, 15 August 2007 (UTC)

Sources[edit]

Hi Vonones, I will add sources can you take a look at it in few hours. and see if it has enough sources? The article is still in the start stage, thats why its still green--Skatewalk 23:14, 15 August 2007 (UTC)

Arabian vs Modern Arab[edit]

Well the problem is the text makes a assumption that Akkadians are Arabs, Arabs as in the people; since Arab is not a region but people. --Vonones 23:17, 15 August 2007 (UTC)

Seen, I got your point of view --Aziz1005 23:16, 15 August 2007 (UTC)

I changed it to Arabian, User:Slackster suggeted that we change it to Arabian so it dont get confused with the modern Arab term. Not every Arab is Arabian and vs Versa. Even in some places of Arabia today (West Oman, East Yemen) they dont speak or relate to modern Arabs, instead they maintain an ancient Arabian language and identity --Skatewalk 23:20, 15 August 2007 (UTC)

Moved the original material sign[edit]

I moved to the section I can't reference. The Assyrians and Arameans (non Arabs). have their own websites, but I will leave that for them. to fix since they know about that more than me. --Skatewalk 23:42, 15 August 2007 (UTC)

The Armenians[edit]

In South Arabia some Bedouins use the name Armon, 'Armon, you can find the name variants in the north. It could come from highlands? Arm in semitic means high. or it could mean other things? I am not into genetics and racial related subjects, but many NearEasterners in General resemble the Armenians in many ways. (and its a known fact that the Armineans remained isolated through the period of Islamic invasions, so we can't attribute the Armenians looks to Southern invasions). Honestly, no offense intended (I cant tell a Lebanese or Assyrian from an Armenian by looks alone!). So when I hear Armenians arguing Sumerian and Proto-Semitic origins I wil not be surprised if one day this becomes accepted. --Skatewalk 01:34, 16 August 2007 (UTC)

  • Armenians are not semitic, not sure what you mean I wasn't offended by anything. --Vonones 01:43, 16 August 2007 (UTC)
That was only in a edit summary, Akkads are not related to Armenians. --Vonones 01:53, 16 August 2007 (UTC)

OK lol! I thought that was the reason you were editing Ancient Arabia, and I didnt want you to feel left out!--Skatewalk 01:54, 16 August 2007 (UTC)

re:Flavius Belisarius[edit]

Hello there, I assume you meant to mention user Flavius Belisarius (talk · contribs), how may I help? Just browsed their contributions, I didn't find anything too controversial or personal attacks, and I haven't got a clue about his previous block(s) or 3RR violation(s). It might be preferable to contact the administrator who originally blocked the editor in question, or you could make a report at WP:3RR. Best, PeaceNT 14:28, 17 August 2007 (UTC)

denizz[edit]

We could use a vc tag. {{vc}} Since they are archives, they should be fine. Governmental statements, especially things like archives should be fine. We can just mention the source and let the wiki reader decide. Opinions would not be fine. DenizTC 04:08, 15 August 2007 (UTC)

Even if it is POV it would be fine as long as other POVs are presented with reliable sources. Please read WP:NPOV carefully. There might be WP:UNDUE issues though. DenizTC 04:12, 15 August 2007 (UTC)

Read what I have written above. And, it is sourced by Iranica!! If other academics say otherwise, just mention that with a source. We should pay attention to WP:UNDUE, here as well. Besides I did not see much talk about it on the talk page. By te way, where is your archive? DenizTC 08:57, 19 August 2007 (UTC)

[2].[3]

  • I really want to fix the article and have a civil discussion section, but the Ancient Arabia article dont exist!. And my ancestors paid a very heavy price for not following Islam, and I am not going to edit/accept the (Jahiliyah) Islamic related article, just because it was force merged into PreIslamic Arabia!--Skatewalk 01:28, 20 August 2007 (UTC)
  • Add next to your Elias diehard buddy Ancient Arabia denial group, because you are contribuiting to the 1400years old cultural genocide of Ancient Arabia.--Skatewalk 01:42, 20 August 2007 (UTC)

Go propose for a name change for example, to Pre-Arabia or PreHistoric Arabia or whatever. --Vonones 01:43, 20 August 2007 (UTC)

Whats wrong with Ancient Arabia? does is it say anywhere that it wrong to use the term Ancient Arabia. Just like ancient Egypt or ancient Mesopotamia or Ancient India. Every region in the world deserves to have its Ancient history article and not an article glued to the (jahiliyah). --Skatewalk 05:59, 20 August 2007 (UTC)

Corduene[edit]

Hi,

I agree that the overall Armenian rule in Corduene is around 250 years, but to make it compatible with the timeline at the end of the page, I added Urartu(800-595 BC) and Tigranes' rule (90-66 BC). This is needed because the two periods in question are almost 5 centuries apart. Thanks.Heja Helweda 00:52, 21 August 2007 (UTC)
