How come?[edit]

Hey Yerevantsi,

I wonder, how come all these links and references, which were numerous, are nonsensical, while specifically the two you added are not? Some specific reason that labels them all as unusable? Most are indeed not good at all, but could be supportive. That being said, the links you added are between 5 and 8 years old; maybe something more up-to-date is better? I will ask an user who lives in Iran as well and thus can read and write in Farsi to provide some proper up to date stuff. Bests - LouisAragon (talk) 18:58, 19 November 2015 (UTC)

In the modern times, there have never been half a million Armenians in Iran. It's a ridiculous figure. Plus, it comes from an atlas. There haven't been much demographic changes in 5-8 years in Iran. Citing a 2012 that is clearly false is no better than citing a 2007 scholastic article on the subject specifically. christianexaminer.com article cites "Compass Direct News of Santa Ana, Calif., which provides reports on Christians worldwide who are persecuted for their faith." it doesn't seem to be a reliable source. Neither is Ajam Media Collective (ajammc.com). After revewing the rest of the sources, two do seem to be appropriate (Semerdjian, The Hill and Mirzoyan 2010). Both of these two books are about Armenians, with the first one being specifically on Iranian Armenians. --Երևանցի talk 08:20, 20 November 2015 (UTC)
True, the number of 500,000 is clear nonsense. The problem is however that Iran hasn't had any reliable census for decades, which makes us have to search for multiple reliable sources to get a rough indication of their numbers. Its like with the Azeris in Iran. Most sources in the world state a number that comprises 24-30% of Iran's population, but for years (until some days ago, actually) the only somewhat recognized institutional sourcing provided by the CIA world factbook stated a number of 16% (even though until some years ago they held the number stabily on 25%). Thanks for re-adding the other two sources. Bests - LouisAragon (talk) 21:31, 20 November 2015 (UTC)

About WT:VA/E[edit]

There are still many proposals in that talk page lacking other Wikipedians' concern, e.g. knee, and if there will be no other votes in the near future they would be removed, so if you have time please vote in these proposals, especially Mount Ararat and Armenian Apostolic Church, which are proposed by me.--RekishiEJ (talk) 12:32, 25 November 2015 (UTC)

Regarding this line[edit]

Hello Yerevantsi,

Regarding the first line of the body of the Armenian Genocide page;

"Armenia had come largely under Ottoman rule during the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries."

Is Greater Armenia meant here in general? (Which would be incorrect) Or just Western Armenia? Just thought of hopping by for a sec to get your opinion.

Oh, also, in case you also happen to celebrate it these days; a Merry Christmas to you! If not, I will probably re-mention it again to you in some days ;-)

Bests and take care,

- LouisAragon (talk) 05:30, 26 December 2015 (UTC)

The term "Armenia" referred to a large area, which he can conventionally call Greater Armenia here. Yes, it should say Western Armenia, because Eastern Armenia was never entirely conquered by the Turks and remained largely under Persian rule until 1828. --Երևանցի talk 08:10, 28 December 2015 (UTC)
I disagree, and have returned it to just "Armenia". The term Western Armenia as used in the article refers to the result of the division of Armenia created by the Ottoman conquest of most of historical Armenia. So, it did not exist before that event - there was not a "Western Armenia" entity to be conquered. But better take this to the article's talk page. Tiptoethrutheminefield (talk) 21:39, 5 January 2016 (UTC)
Because you disagree, you decided to just plainly revert it, instead of perhaps placing a comment on the link that I provided in the edit summary, that stated that we had some kind of a discussion. Great approach. I appreciate your concerns, however, I believe there are unfortunately problems and incorrectnesses regarding your argument. The concept of East and Western Armenia has always been roughly synonymous to the concept at the time of the Genocide, be it that Eastern Armenia had by then just come for about a 100 years in Russian hands, from 1828 to be precise. With your edit you're unfortunately erraneaously stating as if a notion of Western Armenia (which has always been comprising roughly the same territory) was only in use from the early 20th century, and differed to that in terms of concept as how it has been used for earlier periods of Armenian history. Scholars have been using the terms "Western and Eastern Armenia" for numerous era's in Armenian history, notably and only for when historical Armenia was split between the Byzantines-Sasanids, the Safavids-Ottomans, and later when Russia conquered Eastern Armenia from Iran, and the territory became thus divided between Russia and the Ottomans. I believe 1915 or the years prior to that makes the concept/the territory it roughly comprise(d) no different (in the very sense of the word) from how it was used earlier. Furthermore, the Ottomans indeed never entirely conquered Eastern Armenia, or held it for any extended period, thus theres a clear distinction. Western Armenia, from the 16th century and on, virtully literally equals to the Ottoman/Turkish dominated parts of historical Armenia. - LouisAragon (talk) 14:42, 6 January 2016 (UTC)
There are serious flaws in your reasoning. However, this page is not the proper forum. Would you please use the article's talk page. Tiptoethrutheminefield (talk) 16:44, 6 January 2016 (UTC)

Grant High School (Los Angeles)[edit]

You might be interested in Grant High School (Los Angeles): it has a lot of Armenian students and there had been some incidents of racial tension with the Mexican and Latino students. I wonder if there's more info about the Armenian students and their backgrounds.

On the Armenian Wikipedia I am putting out a request for somebody to start an Armenian stub about the school. WhisperToMe (talk) 06:39, 5 January 2016 (UTC)

Kalustyan's[edit]

Hi Yerevantsi,

Kalustyan's has an interesting history. The area around Kalustyan's is now called "Curry Hill" in New York City. It is a direct result of Mr Kalustyan's shop. Thus Kalustyan's has played a historic role in transformation of an entire neighborhood in New York City.

Kalustyan's was regarded to be an Indian grocery store. Even today, to some extent it is. Kalustyan's was the forerunner of the hundreds of Indian grocery stores in USA today.

Please allow me a few days to complete the article.

Incidentally one of my friends also has the same first name as yours -Yerevan.
