Missing article: National symbols of Turkey[edit]

Turkey is one of the few big countries missing this overview topic. See the template at National symbols of Japan, for example. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 03:47, 12 September 2016 (UTC)

Turkish people[edit]

Hi there, would anyone be of assistance on the Turkish people article? I have worked really hard to find as many sources as possible for the populations in the infobox (everything was even quoted - I used censuses and mostly academic sources). But I have continuously been reverted and nobody is having a discussion with me to solve the dispute. What should I do? One of the users has threatened to block me. But I just wanted to correct the figures because they are all distorted. This is what they keep reverting it to [1] and this is my edits [2]. O.celebi (talk) 08:50, 16 September 2016 (UTC)

As far as I can see, the problem stems from a Turkish source. But I observe that you have also used English sources. Try to rely on English sources and correct figures if necessary. (Unfortunatelly I don't have those sources.) Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 17:10, 16 September 2016 (UTC)


Hi. I was wondering if you'd be interested in me setting up Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Turkey), based on Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge and Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). Now it's not a contest in itself, it's designed to motivate people to inspire others to improve content and build something which demonstrates the hard work going into the country which is visible. The focus is more on quality improvements but new articles are welcome too. Eventually a Turkish National Contest could be created to fuel it, like Wikipedia:Awaken the Dragon, in which contestants can choose to keep the Amazon vouchers themselves to buy their own books for more articles or put them into book fund to help editors further improve Turkish-related topics by giving them the books they want. It will begin though as purely an improvement drive. Publicize this, get a group of editors together if interested and we'll start it!♦ Dr. Blofeld 12:07, 19 September 2016 (UTC)

As I know editors like CeeGee are tremendously resourceful and there's some other decent editors working here I've created this at Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Turkey). I thought once setting up a people add a few articles it will gain momentum and more editors. Good luck with it, hope it encourages people to produce more content! If interested sign up in the participants section on the page!♦ Dr. Blofeld 19:52, 19 September 2016 (UTC)

Demokrat Partisi[edit]

Does Demokrat Partisi refer to all the ones at Demokrat Parti or just one of them as it does now? -- (talk) 05:13, 15 October 2016 (UTC)

As far as I can see it refers to the party in Cyprus. There has never been a party named Demokrat Partisi in Turkey. Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 06:19, 15 October 2016 (UTC)
