Hello, folks. I've been working on a draft in my userspace, [1], for which one of the most substantive sources is in Turkish [2]. Is there anybody here who can help with translation? I didn't want to rely on google for anything but the most basic stuff. Shouldn't be too difficult, it's only a few paragraphs. Regards, Vanamonde (talk) 14:40, 25 April 2017 (UTC)

I'd be glad to help. But unfortunatelly this is not in Turkish. Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 18:40, 25 April 2017 (UTC)
@Nedim Ardoğa: Huh, you're right. I didn't realize at first, just kind of says its in Kurdish, not Turkish. How about this? This does seem to be in Turkish, and is also a little longer than my other sources. Regards, Vanamonde (talk) 05:29, 26 April 2017 (UTC)
@Nedim Ardoğa: pinging you again; maybe you missed it the first time? Vanamonde (talk) 04:21, 8 May 2017 (UTC)


This has got to be the lowest priority thing I can think of related to Turkey, but I'm going through all the "List of butterflies of ..." lists and the one for Turkey (List of butterflies of Turkey) has what appears to be the species names in Turkish. That's cool. Most lists don't have the native language. The thing is that Wikipedia's style is to have species common names in lower case, except for proper names. Not speaking Turkish, I can't easily tell what are proper names and what are not. I've made a copy in my userspace with all the names in lower case at User:SchreiberBike/sandbox/List of butterflies of Turkey. If someone could go through that and capitalize the proper names, I'd be happy to do the rest. Thanks in advance,  SchreiberBike | ⌨  15:46, 7 May 2017 (UTC)

I've identified the proper names and updated List of butterflies of Turkey. If anyone is interested in checking my work, I'd appreciate it. Thank you.  SchreiberBike | ⌨  21:29, 24 May 2017 (UTC)

Vandalism at Turkish Wikipedia[edit]

I'm doing research regarding the butterflies above and using Turkish Wikipedia. I've found the phrase "_O_R_O_S_P_U_S_U_N_U_Z_!_" all over the place there with what appears to be a user's signature in articles. The user at Turkish Wikipedia is at . I speak no Turkish so I can't tell what's going on but I want to bring it to someone's attention.  SchreiberBike | ⌨  00:39, 23 May 2017 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Fevzipaşa (disambiguation)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Fevzipaşa (disambiguation) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Disambiguation not required. Fevzipaşa (the town) now refers to Fevzi Pasha (disambiguation) (Ottoman/Turkish generals named Fevzi) in a hatnote.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Mahir Canova Sahnesi[edit]

  • Is the subject notable? No such page in tr Wikipedia.
  • Unsourced, very short.Xx236 (talk) 07:15, 31 May 2017 (UTC)
  • There is no need for a subject to be considered as not notable because there is no page of it in another language WP. I am adding now at least one reference. CeeGee 11:52, 2 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Do we includes theatres in WP ? If the question is yes, then this topic is notable enough.Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 10:37, 7 July 2017 (UTC)

2017 March for Justice[edit]

Needs images. I found some that may be relevant added to a tr wiki article, but since I rely on machine translation, I am not sure if they are indeed relevant - see Talk:2017 March for Justice. I used Creative Commons search and found some more at [3], but again, many have turkish description, so I am hesitant to upload any without help from Turkish speaker(s) to verify they are indeed relevant. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 18:09, 11 July 2017 (UTC)

List of windmills in Ireland[edit]

I've expanded the List of windmills in Ireland. There is an equivalent list on the Turkish language Wikipedia, which can be expanded using the information in that list. Mjroots (talk) 06:29, 24 July 2017 (UTC)
