WP 1.0 bot announcement[edit]

This message is being sent to each WikiProject that participates in the WP 1.0 assessment system. On Saturday, January 23, 2010, the WP 1.0 bot will be upgraded. Your project does not need to take any action, but the appearance of your project's summary table will change. The upgrade will make many new, optional features available to all WikiProjects. Additional information is available at the WP 1.0 project homepage. — Carl (CBM · talk) 03:21, 22 January 2010 (UTC)

Konstantine II of Kartli[edit]

Why someone tries to present that as if the Kartli line more legitimate than Kaheti line? In the list it is specified that tsar Konstantin II (1478-1505) as though once was the king of all Georgia - it is a blunder! because last king of all Georgia was George VIII (1446-1476)who has been compelled to leave a throne of Georgia and to move in Kaheti. After that Georgia has collapsed on three kingdoms. The King Konstantine (Constantine) II never was the king of all Georgia !!! Therefore claims of a line of Kaheti more legitimate, than of a line of Kartli. Also it is necessary to notice that a line of kings of Kartli has stopped in 1919. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:29, 18 March 2010 (UTC)

King Konstantine II's reign over Georgia is documented at the bottom of the page on Royal Ark's article on the Bagrationi here. If you have verifiable corrections, please cite your source. Also, you posted your comment at the beginning of this Talk page instead of at the end.

Line of succession to the Georgian throne (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views)

Is there anyone here with the ability and patience to sort out the madness that is going on at the talk page of this article? I am currently trying to remove most articles of this kind for lack of notability and because it's almost impossible in most cases to find reliable sources that list the theoretical heirs to an abolished throne. Hans Adler 09:25, 23 April 2010 (UTC)

The madness continues. Is there anyone willing to deal with it, or do we have to delete the article as an unmaintainable POV pushing forum? Hans Adler 10:46, 22 May 2010 (UTC)

Standard romanization of Georgian[edit]

Hi, as a spin-off of the discussion at Talk:Tsqaltubo, I would like to propose a standard romanization scheme for Georgian names. For similar schemes for other languages/alphabets see Wikipedia:Romanization and the general rules at Wikipedia:Article titles#Foreign names and anglicization. There are several existing schemes listed at Georgian alphabet#Transcription. I'd prefer to use a version without apostrophs for article titles, for instance like in the table below (which equals the Georgian national system of romanization and the BGN/PCGN romanization, apostrophs omitted).

Merge Public investigation of the Ossetian War into 2008 South Ossetia war?[edit]

It seems to me that the content of Public investigation of the Ossetian War would be better served by merging it into 2008 South Ossetia war. Comments? Richwales (talk · contribs · review) 05:00, 31 July 2010 (UTC)

On further reflection, I think the stuff at Public investigation of the Ossetian War doesn't seem to be substantial enough to merit more than an additional sentence or two (if even that!) in 2008 South Ossetia war. After two years of being tagged as requiring improvement on numerous counts, that page is probably more of a candidate for deletion than a useful source of material for a merger.

Georgia (country) articles have been selected for the Wikipedia 0.8 release[edit]

Version 0.8 is a collection of Wikipedia articles selected by the Wikipedia 1.0 team for offline release on USB key, DVD and mobile phone. Articles were selected based on their assessed importance and quality, then article versions (revisionIDs) were chosen for trustworthiness (freedom from vandalism) using an adaptation of the WikiTrust algorithm.

We would like to ask you to review the Georgia (country) articles and revisionIDs we have chosen. Selected articles are marked with a diamond symbol (♦) to the right of each article, and this symbol links to the selected version of each article. If you believe we have included or excluded articles inappropriately, please contact us at Wikipedia talk:Version 0.8 with the details. You may wish to look at your WikiProject's articles with cleanup tags and try to improve any that need work; if you do, please give us the new revisionID at Wikipedia talk:Version 0.8. We would like to complete this consultation period by midnight UTC on Monday, October 11th.

We have greatly streamlined the process since the Version 0.7 release, so we aim to have the collection ready for distribution by the end of October, 2010. As a result, we are planning to distribute the collection much more widely, while continuing to work with groups such as One Laptop per Child and Wikipedia for Schools to extend the reach of Wikipedia worldwide. Please help us, with your WikiProject's feedback!

Vera Kobalia BLP edits[edit]

Jimbo Wales made a potentially controversial edit on BLP grounds at this article about a Georgian politician.[1][2] I believe he over-erred on the side of BLP sensitivity but not egregiously so; other experienced editors may see it differently from either of our points of view. See the discussion at Talk:Vera Kobalia#Controversies section. I am posting this here in the interests of getting a broader consensus among experienced editors -- please review the comments and edits, then weigh in with your thoughtful opinions, pro or con (or otherwise). Thanks! --A. B. (talkcontribs) 12:32, 26 September 2010 (UTC)

  • As the creator of the article whose edit Wales removed, I think he was working to a more strict interpretation of BLP than I personally take, but I think one that is well within the bounds of acceptable editing. I disagree with the removal of the material, but no more than I would disagree with anyone else's editing of words I've written (that's what we do here, after all), and certainly not enough to wheel war about it. If that footnote in her biography does prove durable and lasting, I see no reason to reinstate it, particularly after some time has passed, and if secondary coverage emerges that is not merely reactive and treating her as the scandal-du-jour. His deletion was not the call I'd make, but I don't think it was a bad call. Ford MF (talk) 17:14, 26 September 2010 (UTC)

WikiProject cleanup listing[edit]

I have created together with Smallman12q a toolserver tool that shows a weekly-updated list of cleanup categories for WikiProjects, that can be used as a replacement for WolterBot and this WikiProject is among those that are already included (because it is a member of Category:WolterBot cleanup listing subscriptions).

Political Parties[edit]

Image copyright question (File:Tavisupleba Video Montage.jpg)[edit]

I'm looking for feedback regarding the copyright status of File:Tavisupleba Video Montage.jpg — an image which I produced in 2008 from screen shots of a "music video" version of the Georgian national anthem. The copyright status of this image is now being disputed.

When I uploaded this image, I proposed that it was not subject to copyright under Georgian law because it is a representation of an official symbol of state (specifically, the national anthem). What do others think of this rationale?

If the consensus is that the "official symbols of state" copyright exemption does not apply here, could use of the montage be justified instead as "fair use" — either as the montage currently stands, or in a reduced size, or with fewer screen shots?

Since I understand the file could end up being deleted in another week or so unless the copyright status issue is satisfactorily addressed in some way, I would be grateful for any knowledgeable input on this question ASAP. Thanks. Richwales (talk · contribs) 18:37, 4 January 2011 (UTC)

Cities and towns in Georgia template[edit]

Why are some of the towns in italics in the Template:Cities and towns in Georgia (country)? Also why is Tskhinvali in bold? If it is due to a convention (guideline), where can I find it? --Bejnar (talk) 17:54, 25 May 2011 (UTC)

I see that BRUTE has removed the bolding of Tskhinvali. Does anyone know about the italics? --Bejnar (talk) 20:31, 27 May 2011 (UTC)
The italics denote the daba, a type of settlement similar to the Russian and Ukrainian "urban-type settlement". Simply to put it, these are "urbanized" large villages.--KoberTalk 20:50, 27 May 2011 (UTC)

Improving "Healthcare in Georgia"[edit]

The current Wikipedia article, “Healthcare in Georgia,” has been rated as Stub-Class on WikiProject Georgia's quality scale and as Mid-Importance on the WikiProject's importance scale. (I.e. The article provides very little meaningful content, is too short to provide encyclopedic coverage, and is capable of much expansion. And its subject is only notable within a particular field, place, or area.) With editing, the stub class could be eliminated, and the topic’s relevance could be expanded so it will be deemed to be of greater importance.
The current article contains a statement on the life expectancy of Georgians in 2005 and another on the Ministry of Labour, Health and Social Affairs that oversees Georgia’s health care system. In addition to these two concise sentences, the page also contains a link to “phage therapy,” which is, according to its Wikipedia page, an experimental treatment that has not yet been approved for use in countries other than Georgia. Phage therapy may be an interesting and experimental discovery that Georgia can claim as its own, but it is not particularly relevant to Georgia’s healthcare system – its effectiveness, financing, accessibility, regulation, structure, and reforms – or to the health status of the people of the Republic of Georgia. The page also provides an external link to the World Health Organization’s web page for Georgia, but this is the extent of the existing page on “Healthcare in Georgia.”
This page has the potential to provide a wealth of information on Georgia’s developing health care system, but, as Wikipedia users have recognized, it lacks the quantity and quality of information to qualify as an encyclopedia entry. For a class project, I will be revising the article (and essentially creating it) to cover the following:
I. Introduction
II. Statistical Overview of Health Status
a. Life Expectancy
b. Birth and Mortality Rates
c. Leading Causes of Death
III. Organization
a. Historical Background
b. Regulation
c. Financing
IV. Criticisms
a. Accessibility
b. Quality
c. Efficiency
V. Principal Healthcare Reforms

Mentioning that Stalin was Georgian in the Georgian Affair article.[edit]

I think that is a good thing to put somewhere in the article that Stalin was Georgian-born and he led the USSR at this time so it would be great to let people know the leader was also Georgian.--Wonderman91 (talk) 19:51, 17 December 2011 (UTC)

Oh it's been added the two Georgian-born at "Georgian-born Soviet Russian officials, Joseph Stalin, then People's Commissar for Nationalities for the RSFSR, and Sergo Ordzhonikidze, head of the Transcaucasian Regional Committee (Zaikkraikom) of the Russian Communist Party."

WikiWomen's History Month[edit]

Hi everyone. March is Women's History Month and I'm hoping a few folks here at WP:Georgia will have interest in putting on events (on and off wiki) related to women's roles in Georgia's history, society and culture. We've created an event page on English Wikipedia (please translate!) and I hope you'll find the inspiration to participate. These events can take place off wiki, like edit-a-thons, or on wiki, such as themes and translations. Please visit the page here: WikiWomen's History Month.

Arab Georgia/Emirate of Tbilisi[edit]

Hi! I've just created, as suggested on the Project page, the article Arab Georgia. However, it has almost immediately been erased and replaced by a redirect to Emirate of Tbilisi by User:GeorgianJorjadze. I don't think this change is right, for reasons I have put down on the talk page Talk:Arab Georgia, and have consequently reverted them. The same user has also made some changes to the emirate article without sourcing them, and removed citation needed tags. I'm trying to build an article about a part of Georgia's history that is poorly represented now on the English wikipedia, and would appreciate if other contributors and project members would join the debate. Thanks!--Susuman77 (talk) 23:29, 7 May 2012 (UTC)

Problem with Template:History of Georgia[edit]

Hi! New day, new conflict between me and User:GeorgianJorjadze, it seems! I would greatly appreciate it if any of you could come have a look at it and participate in the discussion.

I initiated a discussion there on the talk page before changing the actual template, and started implementing the changes only after getting feedback from the other interested participant. I feel some changes are objectively needed to bring this template to the standards present in other similar ones, and have explained them in more and more detail as the discussion progressed, while GeorgianJorjadze mostly stated his preference for the old version. He's reverted any attempt I, and another unrelated contributer, have made at changing the template. Confronted with particular problems, he fixed them partially on his own rather than trying to work out a compromise version including some of my changes, as I did repeatedly with his own. After his last revert, instead of answering my arguments for the changes, he went to ask an admin to protect the template on the grounds that I am edit warring (User_talk:Wifione#Template:History of Georgia). I don't accuse him of edit warring, rather of poor ability to negociate compromises and admit he is not the only editor with rights on that template. For information, the version as it stands is his (he last reverted it to how it was before the discussion started, removing also the changes he had made), you can find my last attempts in the article history (last one is I've exposed on the talk page reasons for all of them, last one is the most detailed. I would also appreciate if you (and other editors) could comment on a possible change of image (from the old map now used to the georgian coat of arms), for the sake of consistency with similar templates, and the inclusion or not of dates (I proposed a version with, but am rather neutral on the subject). In any case, I won't edit that template again until other, less partial, users, come and give their opinion on the matter. Thanks a lot!--Susuman77 (talk) 22:13, 8 May 2012 (UTC)

Elimination of Latsabidze Giorgi biography in French Wikipedia[edit]

Hello my name is Adolfo, I have 39 years and I studied piano for 30 years, I'm writing from Spain. My teacher was from Georgia and he spoke of his country's best musician Latsabidze Giorgi, I study their records and know well their work and career. First I want to congratulate you for your good article on Latsabidze in the English Wikipedia. I'm writing because I need your help because Latsabidze's biography has been removed from the French Wikipedia, they have told many lies about Latsabidze, they say they have never won the international competition Rubeinstein of Paris, who has never received the scholarship Carol Hogel, who has never recorded an album etc .... As you can see here: I wrote to administrators to demonstrate the lies they tell: (August 12) (August 15) After demonstrating that they lie, I have requested that the biography is restored in the French Wikipedia as you can see here:édia:Demande_de_restauration_de_page#Giorgi_Latsabidze (August 17) They've given the reasons as you can see and I have proven to be lies. I need your help and the help of the English Wikipedia, I need people to write to show their disagreement with the decision because only tell lies about Giorgi Latsabidze. I can not and I just need people to agree with me that it is written in the French Wikipedia showing their disagreement.

Infobox birthplace info (Soviet era)[edit]

Is there a standard or consensus for how a birthplace should be described in an infobox when someone was born in Georgia while it was still part of the USSR?

Things don't seem to be uniform right now. Consider the following three examples of well-known Georgians born before independence:

It would seem reasonable to handle these (and other similar) articles in a consistent fashion. I note, for what it's worth, that the documentation for Template:Infobox person says that birth (and death) places should be identified using the name in effect for the place at the time of the event. — Richwales 00:38, 8 October 2012 (UTC)

There's no consensus, but I think Melua's model is the most reasonable. "...(now Georgia)" sounds a bit weird as it was still Georgia back then, albeit under a different name and regime.--KoberTalk 03:49, 8 October 2012 (UTC)

Freedom of religion in Georgia — looking for comments[edit]

Hi. I've done a major revision (essentially a total rewrite) of the article on Freedom of religion in Georgia, in preparation for (hopefully) nominating it for Good Article status. I would be grateful for feedback — especially any information about reliable sources which might cast a more positive light on the attitudes and actions of the Georgian Orthodox Church and its adherents towards followers of other faiths (or of no faith). Right now, the article feels heavily biased against the GOC, but given what the sources I've found so far are saying, I don't see any way to change this and still satisfy the NPOV policy requirement that an article must fairly and proportionately represent what the published reliable sources say. — Richwales (no relation to Jimbo) 23:36, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

Red Easter egg[edit]

Can anyone provide insights into this painting? What kind of attire is the lady weating? Is she a nun? Her shoes look to be heeled? Thanks for any insights. The artist died in 1918 if that helps..

Comment on the WikiProject X proposal[edit]

Hello there! As you may already know, most WikiProjects here on Wikipedia struggle to stay active after they've been founded. I believe there is a lot of potential for WikiProjects to facilitate collaboration across subject areas, so I have submitted a grant proposal with the Wikimedia Foundation for the "WikiProject X" project. WikiProject X will study what makes WikiProjects succeed in retaining editors and then design a prototype WikiProject system that will recruit contributors to WikiProjects and help them run effectively. Please review the proposal here and leave feedback. If you have any questions, you can ask on the proposal page or leave a message on my talk page. Thank you for your time! (Also, sorry about the posting mistake earlier. If someone already moved my message to the talk page, feel free to remove this posting.) Harej (talk) 22:47, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

WikiProject X is live![edit]

WikiProject X icon.svg

Hello everyone!

You may have received a message from me earlier asking you to comment on my WikiProject X proposal. The good news is that WikiProject X is now live! In our first phase, we are focusing on research. At this time, we are looking for people to share their experiences with WikiProjects: good, bad, or neutral. We are also looking for WikiProjects that may be interested in trying out new tools and layouts that will make participating easier and projects easier to maintain. If you or your WikiProject are interested, check us out! Note that this is an opt-in program; no WikiProject will be required to change anything against its wishes. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!

Note: To receive additional notifications about WikiProject X on this talk page, please add this page to Wikipedia:WikiProject X/Newsletter. Otherwise, this will be the last notification sent about WikiProject X.

orders of the "crown" (?) of Georgia[edit]

I've just now deleted "Order of the Crown of Georgia", simply because it was a re-creation of an article deleted via Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Order of the Crown of Georgia. But come to think of it, what about Order of the Eagle of Georgia and Order of Saint Queen Tamar (and perhaps others)? These look to me like fictions spun by and for a merely fictional monarch. However, I cannot read Georgian and therefore would not be able to read sources in Georgian (if these exist). -- Hoary (talk) 02:21, 4 February 2015 (UTC)

For "Order of the Crown of Georgia", see Wikipedia:Deletion review/Log/2015 February 4. -- Hoary (talk) 03:11, 5 February 2015 (UTC)

Help with an article?[edit]

I was wondering if anyone would help out at the draft article Draft:Lamara Qoqiauri. It was recently deleted at AfD and was re-created by a new user (Surprizi). It's extremely likely that coverage for her will only be in Georgian, so I think that this would greatly benefit from having someone fluent in the language (or fluent enough to perform a search) helping and guiding them. I figured that rather than outright delete this as a recreation, it'd be better to send it to the draftspace because of the likeliness of a language barrier. Tokyogirl79 (。◕‿◕。) 10:59, 7 October 2015 (UTC)

  • The editor also seems to be ESL, so someone who could discuss details in their native language would be helpful in case there are any topics that may not come across as easily in English. They seem eager and willing, so I don't want to inadvertently drive them away because of a misunderstanding with language. Tokyogirl79 (。◕‿◕。) 11:03, 7 October 2015 (UTC)

Multiple GA nominations from a topic banned user[edit]

Greetings. I am starting the review of Claim of the biblical descent of the Bagrationi dynasty and I noticed that the nominating user, user:Jaqeli, is topic banned for anything Georgia related. Since the article should not suffer I am still doing the review, if anyone feels like picking up on any changes that's cool, if not that's cool too. Side note - there are 7-8 articles nominated at the same time by the same user coming up. With the GA Cup going on right now I expect those to be reviewed in the next couple of days. MPJ-US  19:39, 5 March 2016 (UTC)

Auto-assessment of article classes[edit]

Following a recent discussion at WP:VPR, there is consensus for an opt-in bot task that automatically assesses the class of articles based on classes listed for other project templates on the same page. In other words, if WikiProject A has evaluated an article to be C-class and WikiProject B hasn't evaluated the article at all, such a bot task would automatically evaluate the article as C-class for WikiProject B.

If you think auto-assessment might benefit this project, consider discussing it with other members here. For more information or to request an auto-assessment run, please visit User:BU RoBOT/autoassess. This is a one-time message to alert projects with over 1,000 unassessed articles to this possibility. ~ RobTalk 22:28, 3 June 2016 (UTC)

Georgian nationalism[edit]

Has anyone noticed that we don't have an article for Georgian nationalism? We should probably have one right? Charles Essie (talk) 22:24, 20 September 2016 (UTC)

Talk:Mikheil Saakashvili[edit]

Could a 'task force' of one or two or more editors have a look at the above. Both I and separately another reader (5 months before me) have asked about a contradiction in the article about whether the former President lost his citizenship through being stripped of it or voluntarily giving it up. Currently the article says both happened, which can't be correct. Frenchmalawi (talk) 12:04, 22 October 2016 (UTC)

Cannabis in Georgia (country) needs improvement[edit]

We have a new article Cannabis in Georgia (country), but it could really use improvement and expansion, especially from anyone who can read Georgian or Russian sources. With a little polishing, it'd also be really useful to make a translated version for Georgian Wikipedia since it's a topic of increasing interesting these days.
