User Behmod


Hi, I am sorry if you felt I was being unduly against you, Atabek, that was certainly not my intention. First of all I feel that you take every edit which is against you personally. I am neither anti-Azeri nor Anti-Turk as FYI, I am half Azeri and many of my family are Azeris. Also, I have intimate Azeri or Turkish(from Turkey)friends. I just have my point of view that might necessary the same with you, Dacy and even Hajipiruz. If you feel that we need to start talking. I am open to discuss these issues, away from the tension --behmod talk 16:44, 19 June 2007 (UTC)Reply



Why are you distorting facts? I have never revert warred.

  • Nagorno-Karabakh War - [1] Where is my revert warring? I do not see a single Azeri user contesting any of my edits.
  • Varoujan Garabedian - This edit (which was over a month ago) was a simple (and explained) removal of an unsourced statement and a highly controversial category. My next edit (a month later) has nothing to do with my previous revert and touches upon something to which I explained as well. And what do these ASALA articles have to do with Armenia-Azerbaijan 2? Maybe you have Pan-Turkic thoughts...I don't know but I do not see a link.
  • ASALA - Where do you see any edits (let alone reverts) done by me on that article, I do not know. My last edit on that article was in April and it was a revert on vandalism.

Show me other Armenia-Azerbaijan linked reverts I have done, not "and other". - Fedayee 00:15, 21 June 2007 (UTC)Reply

For the removal of the "See also", it is generally the way it is done in Wikipedia. When an article is already linked in the body, you do not need to double link it in a "See also". I learned this through a Peer Review at ARF article which is the reason that article does not have a "See also" section.
I can't believe you actually linked the Agarunov edit because you, of all people, should know that the neutral term we use on Wikipedia is capture. You do not know of occupy being POV? You do not know of resistance being POV? **Raising eyebrow**
The change on NK (done by a random IP) was not contested and that NK war page has been discussed over and over and over again and you know this very well.
I have explained the two Varoujan edits... - Fedayee 00:40, 21 June 2007 (UTC)Reply
Then tell me, do you see the word "occupy" being used once in the NK war article in regards to Armenia-Azerbaijan? Why should we differ the use from one article to the other? Capture is an obvious compromise Atabek, you know all this, I am preaching to the choir. - Fedayee 00:54, 21 June 2007 (UTC)Reply
Armenian and Azerbaijani editors reached this compromise with the help of admins. Occupy to you, the UN, the media of Azerbaijan but liberated to Armenians. The middle ground is best to avoid conflicts here on Wikipedia since we have them so often. - Fedayee 01:13, 21 June 2007 (UTC)Reply
I'm not sure exactly where in the NK article it was discussed but there are 12 archives and it was surely discussed over and over again (I, like you, was not part of any of these discussions). Nice try on the UN security resolution, it mentions only places outside Nagorno-Karabakh, NK is excluded thus making it considered disputed. And since Shushi is in NK then it is rightful to remain as neutral as possible in that disputed territory. Besides, I did not aggressively push my POV in that article, if I had done that, you would've seen "liberation of Shushi", I suggested a simple compromise that would avoid such conflicts. Your POV and "numbers" about "ethnic cleansing" are irrelevant to me and our discussion. - Fedayee 01:56, 21 June 2007 (UTC)Reply

Sagh Olasan ! Baghishlasoz ke manim Azeri yazmaghim yaxchi dayir (Please forgive me if my Azeri writing is not good!) . Indeed the false image that is inducted in our northern brothers is a side effect of long lasting Russian occupation. Neither prohibition nor restriction is seen in learning mother tongue Azeri in Iran. The point is that Persian language has a very long and powerful tradition of literature and writing that is not comparable to our oral language (Azeri) .That does not diminish or humiliate our mother tongue or culture: that is a technical and historical reality. As you know, not only in Safavid, Qajar or any other Turkish language Iranian dynasty but also in ordinary people, the written and official language has been Persian, in both north and south of the Arass River. More than that, in the Ottoman Empire, the official language of the royal court was also Persian: that can't be called imposing the language.... I think that's important to notice the point that Hasan bey Zardabi was fighting to use Azeri language instead of Persian, 50 years after the Russian invasion and cessation of any political Iranian influence in Caucasus : that shows the usage of Persian was not (and is not ) by force . Zardabi himself wanted to use Azeri just because he was Narodnik and Sunni and he did thought that the backwardness and poverty of Muslim Caucasians stems in conventional roots and traditions: indeed he was against every thing that was old and in Azerbaijan that meant Azeri historical and cultural heritage plus written language that was mostly Iranian. The changing of the script from Latin to Cyrillic and Arabic shows that the Turkish language still does not have stability and formal figure. Talking with my friends in Baku, I find it out in writing Azeri, the constant dilemma is to write down that is spoken! But that's never the case in Persian, because almost every word has it's own known etymology and there is no problem in writing it down . I can't understand how is it possible to know Azeri and not to know Persian?! As an example you write " hormetli Alborz, eger sozum sizi injitdise, uzr isteyirem" : "Hormat" is from "Ehteraam" , respectfulness in Persian and Arabic , "Egar" is Persian , "M" in "soz" is Persian , " Uzr " is "Pardon " in Persian and Arabic ! / "Zardabi" is Persian : and not Sari - Sue (yellow water) / Azerbaijan is also from AZAR (fire) and bijan (baygan = fortress) and so on ....

Söhbətinizə qarışdığım üçün bağışlayın, yəgin ki siz etiraz etməsziniz. I agree that there are many Persian loan words in Azeri language, but at the same time there are over 1000 Azeri Turkic loan words in Persian. I do not agree that Azerbaijani language had no written tradition, it exists since at least 14th century. While I agree that Persian literary culture is a lot older, it does not mean that we have no literary culture of our own. This is the point, we should care about our language and culture, and it does not mean that it is pan-Turkism or whatever, it is normal for any people to promote your own literary tradition. I regret that the relations between Azerbaijani and Iranian users came to such a point that we had to apply to arbcom, I hope for successful future cooperation in editing wiki articles. Grandmaster 10:10, 21 June 2007 (UTC)Reply
San da chox xhosh galdoz ...we where talking about the unreal image of discrimination against Iranian Azeri's. I can understand that in the Azerbaijan republic, they compare the Persians to Russians and Iran to USSR because of lack of information and media biases. But that's a false image. That's impossible to consider them alike .I know that the self esteem and dignity of our Azeri counterparts suffered a lot in conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan and also in struggle for independent identity for a new country. But I'm insisting the same is not true about Iran and Iranian Azeri's. That prejudice about "torturing and jailing people for demanding language right" (as atabek says) as an on-going tragedy in Iran, is totally unreal and impossible in Iran: Iran is not and has never been a country like USSR.
About the inconvenience in arbcom , I think all of this begin when Dacy reacted in an unfriendly manner in Iranian Azerbaijan history and threatened to get it to the arbcom. Do you think is there any other choice for someone like me(Iranian Azeri)other than choosing Iran, when some one claims that "degree of integration of Azerbaijanis in Iranian society" is diminished because a mere cartoon ,by a personal opinion and not based on any text ? And what can I do when a hypersensitive person reacts a simple edit with improper response?In contrast,Grandmaster may remember my contribution in Paytakaran and willingness to support his point of view --Alborz Fallah 17:53, 21 June 2007 (UTC)Reply
  • For Atabek: Well, about the "Iranian Elements in Azeri grammar and vocabulary ", I can recommend [2] (section ix. Iranian Elements in Azeri Turkish ).Borrowing per se is not the important point , as French words in English and Arabic in Persian, but the point is frequency of usage and heritage of a language in the written from. As an example , the Arabic words in the Persian language have a background of a thousand years usage in the written form and the PersoArabic script was invented and used by both of Arabic and Persian in the same time. Then the Persian language has no problem in writing down , pronunciation or ethimology of a word like "Ehteram" , but in Turkish , we still have to search for a cast to write our language : if the tradition of writing Turkish has a long and applied history , then why after so much time , in resent century , it's script changed for many times ? Why there is no single script of Turkish in the tombs, mosques, coins or personal documents? What has been the reason for almost every Azeri poet to write more in Persian than Azeri or for many to write only in Persian?
    About the Atorpat , the person's name itself is derived from the Persian word and the tile of Atorpat and Alexander was mentioned in an ancient Sasanid era book that it's name is Arda viraf nameh. Still in Persian, the word Azar means fire and is the name of the 9th month of the year, and the word padegan is used as an army fortress: that does not need any sophisticated etymologyical discussion. --Alborz Fallah 18:55, 21 June 2007 (UTC)Reply
I would say that USSR was lot more liberal in terms of cultural autonomy that Iran ever was. While USSR was a totalitarian regime, it granted all people the right to promote their language and culture. For instance, in USSR Azerbaijani language had an official state language status along with Russian in the Azerbaijan SSR. All the official documents in Azerbaijan needed to be prepared in 2 languages, Russian and Azerbaijani. Even passports had 2 title pages, one in Russian and 1 in Azeri. There was a state run television channel in Azerbaijani language, plenty of newspapers, books, radio channels, etc. Azerbaijani language was taught in all schools, even Russian language schools had Azerbaijani language lessons. Same with universities in Azerbaijan SSR. You cannot say that Azerbaijani language has any status in Iran. The point of all this is not to make any anti-Iranian statement, I just brought this up since you mentioned USSR. In any case, I think we should refrain from confrontational approach and edit the articles in cooperation. I know that you are a good person, interested in the history of our region, and I’m sure we can improve the articles by joint efforts. Grandmaster 05:14, 22 June 2007 (UTC)Reply



Why do you continue to canvass every single report un-related to me with accusations against me Atabek? Because several Iranian editors are involved in editing Iran related articles this makes them all meat puppets? What about you, Dacy69 and your other pals? Dont you all edit several of the same articles? Why is that the only person throwing around accusations is you, have I ever called your friends meat puppets? If everyone on Wikipedia who edits in a certain way can be called a meat puppet, then that would make all Wikipedia's meat puppets, as every single Wikipedian has to take one side or another on an issue, because we all have our own opinions. What a ridiculous accusation to make, its completely based on "well, you edited there, and he edited there, so you guys must be meat puppets!" that makes no sense. I have told you several times to stop canvassing, but it seems that you just keep doing it more in an attempt to get me frustrated.Hajji Piruz 14:23, 22 June 2007 (UTC)Reply

Repeated RfC claim


I'm not sure why you keep saying that Hajji Piruz convinced me to file an RfC against you. As can clearly be seen from the history of the RfC, Piruz filed the RfC, not me.

My remark

  • I changed it as you said. Indeed I don't want to say anything against you and my involvement is only a misunderstanding .I'm not familiar with all of these process's and I don't know how to prove I'm not all that Dacy wrote against me . All that I have done was to delete a single sentence that I thought was not sourced, and indeed that sentence about "integration of ..." was not in the original article. Anyway, I would do my best to satisfy all.--Alborz Fallah 12:33, 29 June 2007 (UTC)Reply
  • Well, As I said before, there is no real point of conflict between me and Dacy for an agreement tobe achieved ! Simply , he does not want me anything to do or anything to change!! There is a on-going conflict between he and some of the Iranian editors and I'm the innocent bystander...I not sure if his exclusion of my name will have any effects in present time or not ?
  • About the image , it may not fit to the copy right codes of Wikipedia , but the other site's codes are more simple. I think you might say : "so attempts to upload it elsewhere and present again here are not quite congruent with copyright ethics ", that would be right only if that book was not an educational book! That book is published for a non-commercial , educational perpose and mentioning it anywhere may not violate it's goal of publication ; same as to copy and publish propaganda sheets of a candidate in elections. Anyway ; again I would do my best to change it to an acceptable state.The best thing that is possible for you is to have a research about this book:I think after Iranian government's protest about this book , the book has been changed , and the best answer is to show that change . After Elçibay, there have been a great improvement in Iran-Azerbijan's relations, and that can be mentioned in the article by showing the change in this minor topics.If you post me the new book-cover's image, we will change the article to a positive state.
    In the case of Great Armenia, if any map shows Iranian (or Turkey's or Azerbaijan) territory with the flag of Armenia , that is quite protestable.Historical maps of the dynasties like Safavid's is not in this category , because they (Safavids)are heritage of a group of countries (e.g : Iran , Azerbijan, Kurds and Sheia)and not only Iran.Again about that textbook , I have to mention the fact that never in Iran , there have been a border between Azeries and other Iranian people and if we where going to show the places that "Azerbaijani people have historically resided" , we also have to show the Khorasan proviance(Mostly North part of it ),Fars(qashghayi) , Mazandaran , Gorgan and Tehran itself! And if we use the term Median equal to Azerbijani , that would be impossible to depict a mere line or border any where in Iran to separate Azeris from the other Iranians.
    Thankyou again and have a nice time... --Alborz Fallah 08:06, 30 June 2007 (UTC)Reply
      • Sorry for intervention, but from what I could see that book was published back in 1994. Such textbooks are not used anymore. Grandmaster 09:46, 30 June 2007 (UTC)Reply
Thanks for the quote. I think all of this should be mentioned in the article:both the first and the second history text and the positive changes .Iranian government and Iranian people have very strong ties with the Azerbaijani people and the reason for the cold relations should be mentioned. Finding the roots of coldness is not only a foreign relations need , but also an internal obsession .--Alborz Fallah 23:27, 30 June 2007 (UTC)Reply
I would not say that the relations between the two countries are cold. I think they are good, it is just some people on both sides who make them look tense. The current article on relations between the two countries contains too much negative info and too little info on positive aspects. Grandmaster 05:48, 2 July 2007 (UTC)Reply
Considering the potential that exist between Iran and Azerbaijan and comparing with Turkey (that has lesser cultural ties to Azerbaijan republic), the relations between twin nations are bitter cold. There exists a point of view in Azerbaijani community (mostly north of Arass and to a lesser extent in Iran itself) that accuses Iran not to support Azerbaijan in Azeri-Armenian war as it was supposed. Then mentioning the causes and existence of this problem is useful for both Iran and Azerbaijan, for internal and external reasons. If we show the previous problems that are now solved, that's the best help for the relations of the twin countries. --Alborz Fallah 08:19, 2 July 2007 (UTC)Reply
There are plenty examples of successful cooperation, and while users on both sides are more concerned about digging any possible negative stuff, we should make some effort to include positive info. I will do some research, even though I’m quite busy with arbcom and other issues. But it is true, many people in Azerbaijan view Iran as an ally of Armenia.

With the Azeri films the best thing I think you can do is gradually ensure all the titles have the english wikified ready for starting. Note though I only got as far as 1964 adding the titles.

Your images


Hi, I've had to tag several of your recent image uploads for deletion. Please make sure you understand our image copyright policies, especially WP:NFCC, before uploading more images. Thank you, Fut.Perf. 10:40, 30 August 2007 (UTC)Reply

Okay, let's see, about those images:
  • All images: need reference to the exact, original source. In the case of screenshots, that's the name of the movie or programme it's ultimately taken from, plus any website that contained the photo (in case you didn't make the screenshot yourself).
  • Image:Rustam Ibrahimbeyov.jpg - no way this could be saved, because it's a living person so it's replaceable with a free photo somebody might make some day.
  • Image:The Scoundrel (1988 film).jpg - needs source info explaining who made that weird montage of the three heads cut together in different sizes. Plus, needs an explanation of what you actually intend to show with it: does it show something characteristic about the characters of the movie, about its artistic style, about what? Plus, the article itself should actually refer to this. Remember, "fair use" is all about doing "critical commentary or analysis", so there should actually be some analysis of what the image shows, in the text.
  • Image:Anecdote (1989 film) 1.jpg - same as above. Plus, it needs to be removed from Rasim Balayev, because as a portrait of the actor it's replaceable.
  • Image:Mirzaagha Aliyev.JPG - you might want to check if this is public domain by now (being published more than 70 years ago, there's a chance it might be, depending on the laws of the country.) If it is, you're fine; if not, the same rules apply as for those above.
  • Image:Mamuka Kikaleishvili.jpg - since he's now dead and no new free images can be produced, we generally tend to tolerate non-free images a bit more liberally. Again, you need to specifiy the exact source, and give an explanation of why you need the image - is it a particularly well-known role of his? a particularly important stage in his career? a characteristic pose or style of appearance?

Hello Atabek. Sure, i'll try to find Azeri brother, no problem. How are things in beautiful Baku? Gurcustan + Azerbaican = gardash :) yiyim. Iberieli 03:00, 31 August 2007 (UTC)Reply
Azeri brother, thanks a lot. I will email you. You should also resolve the Khojaly massacre photo issue. Its under attack. Thanks. Iberieli 17:18, 31 August 2007 (UTC)Reply

Atabek, comments like "I am not an expert on spiritual or moral matters, but what's your opinion on deliberate removal of evidence, link or reference to blinding, maiming and brutal murder of a 3-4-year old child by as you would call it "heroes", "liberators" or "fedayins", relating to the topic of this article. Is this also WP:SOAP?" [4] are unacceptable. That's an incivil implication that an editor was removing a video for motives other than copyright concerns. "Or perhaps, the attempt is to prove further that no Azeri soul resided in this city built by Azeri Panah-khan?" [5] is similar, and is covered by this ArbCom remedy. Stirring up the pot like this is not helpful and if there are future incivil comments like these I will ban you from the relevant articles or block you for one week.--Chaser - T 19:53, 2 September 2007 (UTC)Reply

Actually, I missed something. I am enacting a ban under that remedy. The ban applies for four days to the articles liberally included in the remedy. The comment I take issue with is: "But the most important question is, what's your moral stance on supporting the recognition of Armenian massacres as genocide, while removing images or videos of Khojaly Massacre? Do you think the extreme savagery, with which those innocent children on pictures or videos were murdered, should not be made public because those children were Azeri?" [6] for reasons explained above (this is continuing the same insinuations and mixing the issues). This ban will be enforced by block if necessary and extended if a ban violation involves any further incivility.--Chaser - T 20:09, 2 September 2007 (UTC) If it wasn't clear from the previous remarks, this applies to the articles' talk pages, as well.--Chaser - T 03:42, 3 September 2007 (UTC)Reply

Chaser, please, explain why you were first warning above at 19:53, 2 September 2007 and then enacting a ban at 03:42, 3 September 2007, when I never signed in or edited Wikipedia between the two dates of warning and a ban? Also, please, explain in detail on how this comment [7], is supposed to be incivil? Thanks. Atabek 21:20, 3 September 2007 (UTC)Reply
There are three time stamps in my comments above, two in the second paragraph. The third time stamp was an afterthought from yesterday evening. The first two were much earlier. I've explained why it's uncivil above, as well. In the meantime, please don't edit articles or talk pages and then self-revert. You're welcome to make work copies of those articles in your userspace until the ban expires, which will be 6 September, 20:09. Thank you for your cooperation.--Chaser - T 23:12, 3 September 2007 (UTC)Reply

Chaser, I am aware of the stamps. However, ArbCom remedy here clearly says: "The remedies of revert limitations (formerly revert parole), including the limitation of 1 revert per week, civility supervision (formerly civility parole) and supervised editing (formerly probation) that were put in place at Wikipedia:Requests for arbitration/Armenia-Azerbaijan shall apply to any editor who edits articles which relate to Armenia-Azerbaijan and related ethnic conflicts in an aggressive point of view manner marked by incivility. Before any penalty is applied, a warning placed on the editor's user talk page by an administrator shall serve as notice to the user that these remedies apply to them.". Given the explanation in second remedy for the procedure in first remedy, I don't quite understand why first rule was chosen for me without second, while in case of User:Hetoum I, it was the second rule only. As I said, I never signed in to Wikipedia between your warning and the ban, and I believe second would be consequence of not following the warning per ArbCom remedy. Also for consistency, I expect some form of response on this [8], after all, ArbCom decisions should apply equally to all edits with incivilities. Thanks. Atabek 06:51, 4 September 2007 (UTC)Reply

The point is the warning above was a mistake. The warning should have been a ban to begin with. No prior warning is required. Remedy one applies to everyone who was in the prior case. Remedy two applies to everyone else. They're separate.--Chaser - T 07:02, 4 September 2007 (UTC)Reply

Well, the second remedy here says: "...shall apply to any editor who edits articles which relate to Armenia-Azerbaijan and related ethnic conflicts in an aggressive point of view manner marked by incivility.". I don't see how "any editor" would exclude those in first ArbCom, or somehow treat User:Hetoum I different from myself. Moreover, no supervised editing or civility paroles were explicitly spelled out in remedies to the first ArbCom to begin with. Atabek 07:06, 4 September 2007 (UTC)Reply

Atabek, do you disagree that the first remedy applies to you?--Chaser - T 07:19, 4 September 2007 (UTC)Reply

No, I have an issue with selective application of the remedies, especially because:

  • ArbCom Remedy 1 says: "Hajji Piruz and the other users placed on revert limitation in Wikipedia:Requests for arbitration/Armenia-Azerbaijan#Remedies are subject to supervised editing. They may be banned by any administrator from editing any or all articles which relate to the region of Turkey, Armenia, Azerbaijan and Iran and the ethnic and historical issues related to that area should they fail to maintain a reasonable degree of civility in their interactions with one another concerning disputes which may arise."
  • ArbCom Remedy 2 says: "The remedies of revert limitations (formerly revert parole), including the limitation of 1 revert per week, civility supervision (formerly civility parole) and supervised editing (formerly probation) that were put in place at Wikipedia:Requests for arbitration/Armenia-Azerbaijan shall apply to any editor who edits articles which relate to Armenia-Azerbaijan and related ethnic conflicts in an aggressive point of view manner marked by incivility. Before any penalty is applied, a warning placed on the editor's user talk page by an administrator shall serve as notice to the user that these remedies apply to them."

I don't see how highlighted text above does not apply to me, while it somehow applies to User:Hetoum I, especially given the fact that both of us were applied the supervised editing and civility parole in ArbCom 2 first time. In fact, I also have an issue with some second ArbCom participants getting just strict 1RR restriction, and other, not less disruptive group, just getting a conditional 1RR based on civility. Did this lessen the disruptive revert warring by those "supervised" editors in any way? From past week, I don't see how. Atabek 07:26, 4 September 2007 (UTC)Reply

The first remedy applies instead of the second because ArbCom has already handled two cases with editors included in the first remedy. After two ArbCom cases no one should need any more warnings. Let me spell it out. We waste a lot of community time disciplining editors who edit this site disruptively in various ways. ArbCom is the last step of dispute resolution. It means that about a dozen hard-working people who were elected by the community at large took a long time to look into a matter and craft a resolution. If, after going through this process twice, editors are still doing the same thing, we don't have much more tolerance for it, and the regime of warnings before topical bans is over and finished. They used to call this probation, but decided to change the name to get away from legal metaphors. If thinking of it terms of probation helps you understand it, then I don't really care if someone considers it politically incorrect.--Chaser - T 07:40, 4 September 2007 (UTC)Reply

Chaser, thanks, I am well versed in English to understand what "probation" means, and I don't ask you to repeal my ban. However, I was only seeking consistency and explanation in application of remedies/probations/supervised editing, whatever they're termed as to all editors. And yes, it means that if User:VartanM says that I am a member of User:AdilBaguirov's team, it's the same assumption of bad faith and incivility as me questioning moral stance for removing an image of slaughtered children from the relevant massacre website. ArbCom 2 principle clearly spells out that good faith must be assumed. The remedies for ArbCom 2 are worded clearly, in text which I highlighted above. And I think the remedies and principles of ArbCom, especially when they clearly state "any editor" apply to everyone not just to those who went through previous ArbCom. Atabek 08:03, 4 September 2007 (UTC)Reply

And to add to that another assumption of bad faith by User:TigranTheGreat - here. Atabek 08:07, 4 September 2007 (UTC)Reply

Remedies v. principles


What you mention here is a principle in that case, not a remedy. Remedies are the enforceable parts of Arbcom decisions. However, I will leave a message to VartanM as a third party.--Chaser - T 18:31, 4 September 2007 (UTC)Reply

Thanks. But I would like to still ask for another independent review of the material. I understand that it's a principle, but so it was in my case, when it was simply branded as incivility. And I would like to remind you here, what WP:CIVIL states: "Petty examples that contribute to an uncivil environment: -- Lies". Without proofs that User:AdilBaguirov has a team, and another claim that "I am a member of that team", such statements are a lie and disrupt the article edits, hence it's a clear violation of WP:CIVIL as well. So please, don't archive it, until the violation has been fully addressed. Atabek 18:40, 4 September 2007 (UTC)Reply
Fine.--Chaser - T 18:43, 4 September 2007 (UTC)Reply
I've closed the thread. An arbitrator has now weighed in. We don't have time for endless due process and 28 appeals. The issue is closed.--Chaser - T 01:48, 5 September 2007 (UTC)Reply

Before I engage further, I'll have to review the issue. My revert was merely to eliminate the redundant phrasing but not proved, which has the same meaning as 'alleged'.

Sorry, I see that now. I removed the deletion notice since the image is being debated. It still shouldn't be on your user page - a better approach would be just to place a notice on the image Talk page that its use is the subject of a debate. Hopefully, no one will delete it until you can decide whether it will go in the article. The bigger question is that the image itself has a questionable copyright status; it may need to be deleted just for that reason. I will do a little research on the matter. --Spike Wilbury talk 21:37, 8 September 2007 (UTC)Reply
Hm, it seems that copyright status is satisfactory for now. I wouldn't worry about pursuing permissions unless you want to e-mail them and ask them to release the photo under the GFDL. There are instructions for doing so at Wikipedia:Example requests for permission if you are interesting in pursuing the matter. As to the other question: the image simply cannot be anywhere outside of an article unless you get the copyright holders to release it under the GFDL. That includes sandboxes and so on. I won't get involved in the debate over including the image in the article, but it is my job to make sure policies are followed. Thanks! --Spike Wilbury talk 22:53, 8 September 2007 (UTC)Reply

Re:Regarding your comment


And Azerbaijan did the same thing by expelling all Armenians from Azerbaijan. It attacked Artsakh first and not the other way around, who knows what it would've done to the Armenians of Artsakh if it had managed to occupy it (See Sumgait, Kirovabad, Maraghar). And our churches are violated and continue to be violated today in Turkey, exactly the way you have shown me in those forum pictures but there is one difference; our churches are in ruins or being converted to ridiculous and insulting museums in Turkey while Armenians have preserved the mosque and Muslim cemetary and it's actually re-building damaged mosques with the help of Persians. Not to mention that Azerbaijan targeted our churches during the war...

I'm sorry if the Azerbaijani government, instead of spewing hate and arming itself to its teeth with the huge oil revenues, does not decide to spend a little percentage of that wealth on the well-being of the Azeri refugees who unfortunately live in railcars.

Also, if you claim to not "compare" massacres, or numbers of dead or anything, then what's this? Your choice of words in that link are fascinating too; dead for Armenians, butchered for Azerbaijanis.

BTW Atabek, gotta mind WP:SOAP #2; Wikipedia is not forum. - Fedayee 23:20, 10 September 2007 (UTC)Reply

Yes, yes. Evil Armenians were the first to expel Azerbaidjanians while Armenians just... "left" Azerbaijan. I'm surprised they supposedly stayed that long regarding the multiple pogroms in the late 80s in Azerbaijan, including in Baku where women were raped and people killed in the middle of the street.
I'm guessing you have never heard that Armenians used to live in an area called Western Armenia, which is much further than European watched Constantinople (aka Istanbul), where the vast majority of non-forcefully converted Armenians live. Our churches in the occupied Western Armenian homelands are in the exact same shape, no wait, even worse than the picture you have shown me on that forum. Turkish army used it as target practise, it was used as stables, as museums, hell people actually ripped apart the Khachkars and used them as stairs! Why can't Armenians go to service in Akhtamar? The Blue Mosque in Yerevan is still standing without it being a stable, without grafitis, even being re-built. Same thing can be said for that Baku church you name, no Armenians pray in it because there are no Armenians left. Same goes for Western Armenia. And let's not start about the Khachkar destruction which happened a decade after the ceasefire...
Okay, so the government of Azerbaijan will let its people live in railcars, won't help them at least temporarily to live more comfortable lives all in the dream that they will "return" one day to their "homelands"? Sure, I guess they can return to the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic and become citizens.
Point remains that you indeed did compare between people and numbers and viewed 25 killed Armenians inferior to the supposed 600+ dead in Khojaly. - Fedayee 03:50, 11 September 2007 (UTC)Reply
You are correct Atabek, people who scalp children are inhumane but that should be said to the OMON who scalped their own people as the scalping was done after the corridor was open and a journalist had already seen that no bodies had scalping deaths. I wonder where were the Armenian prisoners who were kept in Khojaly and who until now are missing. They were probably killed by the OMON and scalped so that there is no possibility of identification and eventually passed as yet another "Azeri killed" by Armenians. It's a pity that i've been dragged into this soapboxing despite my warning... I rest my case. - Fedayee 00:49, 12 September 2007 (UTC)Reply

Your template


Hi Atabek I saw your templace on Nasimi. I like your template but it needs several corrections in my opinion. Fizuli, as well as Bakikhanov, Akhundov and Sabir wrote in Persian as well. Actually Fizuli wrote much more in Persian than Arabic. Bakhikhanov I believe wrote most of his work in persian where-as Sabir and Akhundov have had a less of an output in Persian. Fizuli's Persian output is extensive. His Persian output is either first or seconds (judging from his Encyclopedia of Islam article). On the name "Literature of Azerbaijan", I think there should be some note for some of the famous poets: "also part of the literature of Persia" or "overlaps also with the literature of Iran". Mainly the classical guys. I am going to add two other writes in the classical sections. Thanks for the template. --alidoostzadeh 18:20, 15 September 2007 (UTC)Reply

Thanks for your nice swipe at me. You apparently either do not know how to click on a link to see what the linked to page says, or you do not know English. I don't know which is the case, but anyone can see that the page that somebody linked to on Armeniapedia merely shows that the name of Fizuli has been changed by the Karabakh government to Varanda. That is a fact, whether you accept it or not, and your insulting me will neither get you back Fizuli, Varanda, nor your self respect. --RaffiKojian 17:41, 6 October 2007 (UTC)Reply

Well if what you wrote about me was not an attack, what I wrote here is much less. The link to Armeniapedia, which I did not add, was merely referencing that the de-facto independent state of Karabakh, which controls Fizuli, has renamed it. This is a simple fact. Your personal attack on me and my site (yes, I consider it an attack) was completely uncalled for. Just because I am Armenian does not mean I cannot be NPOV. Again, you can go on and on about official recognition and all the rest of that business, but this is an encyclopedia, and the Armenians who control Fizuli have renamed it and that is a fact which needs to be reflected on Wikipedia, and that is all that was taken from my site, and you need to deal with that, rather than insult me and then try to explain to me that it officially belongs to Azerbaijan. --RaffiKojian 04:14, 7 October 2007 (UTC)Reply

Regarding Golbez and mediation... You could possibly request an additional mediator from MedCab, or start an RfC on the article topic. If there is truly a conduct issue, you could initiate a user conduct RfC (it requires two involved editors to certify) and see where that leads you. Unfortunately, articles involving nationalist tensions are the most difficult to edit throughout Wikipedia. In most controversial subjects, tendentious editors typically remain only as long as there is a controversy to argue. You may find that if you let it lie for awhile and come back, the situation will have resolved itself to some extent. Again though, with nationalism, this is sometimes less likely. I should point out, however, that in my view the national origin of editors should be irrelevant - the object is to provide a neutral explanation of facts without any identifiable point of view. Perhaps if you focused your editing on non-controversial facts (demographics, geography, non-conflict related historical events etc.) you might be able to establish a pattern of cooperation with the other editors on the article that would allow you to solve the more controversial issues in time. Wikipedia has no time limit, and aside from legal issues there is no real urgency to develop content. It is preferable to remove obviously biased material so as not to mislead readers, but in most cases its easier to leave some controversial pieces of information out entirely if an agreement on its treatment can not be reached. Hope my two cents help. Some references: WP:3O, WP:DR and WP:WQA. These may be of some use. WP:AN/I is really for specific incidents where the buttons of an administrator can be put to use, administrator opinions really have no additional weight in pure content disputes.

Javad Khan's handwritten letter(or his Secretary)to Tsitsianov has clear sentences about his relation with the Qajar kings and his dependency to Iran.
In page one , Javad khan clearly talks about Ganja as "one of the provinces ( VELAYAT ) of Iran ..." ( line 12 )
In page two ( line 6 , 7 and 8 ) , he says : " In that time (6 years ago (alborz)) that we became under the Russian role , the Iranian king was in Khorasan , and we couldn't reach him , and because the russian king was also a great man , we agree to do as he wished , but now , thanks to Allah ,he (shah) is near us and his servant general is coming this way and his army is approaching"

If you want to brag about your cannons and artillery , thanks to god , our cannon is not weaker than yours and if your cannon is one Gaz (94 to 104 cm (alborz)) , ours is 3 to four Gaz , and the god's well is in our side , and who knows you are more brave than the Qizilbash ?(In that time that meant Iranian or who was in Iranian side : I can prove that by means of the other letters such as the Mostafa khan e Shirvani to Gudovich and etc.) You have seen your fight and you have not seen Qizilbash's way of fight .... --Alborz Fallah 12:42, 28 October 2007 (UTC)Reply

Full translation :
The letter of "Javad Khan" to "Tsitsianov" (1218.AH) (1182 AP / 1803 A.D)

At this time, the letter that you sent has been received. And you wrote:" In the era of yore, the land of Dedeh-faal of Ganja was subordinate to Georgia. No one has ever heard of such words. But know that our ancestors like Abbas Qoli Khan and others were rulers of Georgia and if you do not believe this, then question the old folks of Georgia with regards to the Abbas Qoli Khan and ask them if he was the ruler or not.[As a sign of this proof,] currently his mosque and market place are in Georgia. And the kingly clothes bestowed upon his servants as well as his letters/documents are with the people of Georgia or not. From the days of the Erekli Khan's father and our father, the borders between Ganja and Georgia were clearly defined. And we do not need to mention these facts, because if we say that our ancestors were the sovereigns of Georgia, no one on your side will believe it and they will not bestow Georgia upon us.

You also wrote, six years ago, I gave away the fort of Ganja to the ruler of Russia. This is true, at that time, your ruler wrote letters to all the provinces of Iran and also to us and we accepted the letter and gave the fort. Whenever the king[of Russia] wrote us a decree with regards to Ganja, then make that decree clear so that we may observe that decree and apply it. And you wrote to us “We were a client of Georgia”, then know it that right now the letter of your king [the king of Russia] in is our hands and in that letter, you can see that our title was Beglarbegi (governor) of ganja and not a client of Georgia and thus your words are in contradiction with your [own] decree. And the other thing that when we get under the role of the Russian king, the Iranian king were to Khorasan and we could not reach him, and due to that [fact] the king of Russia is also great, we accepted his obedience, but now, thanks to god, the Iranian king is near and his servant general has come to us and also his army, and more of them will come [to help us].

You also wrote that “Georgia belongs to the king [of Russia] and you [- Javad Khan-] obtain fees from the merchants”. This is correct, but the first day that you entered Georgia, we wrote to you and sent men and made it clear that the Nasib is our servant and he has became rebellious and he had sealed from the merchants under our command and we thought that you were the servant of the [Russian] king and you would do as justice and take back the belongings of our merchants and hand us Nasib and other Shamss al-dinlu's that had became rebellious to us ,but you did nothing .And you can see yourself –and don't relay on the saying of the others – that the goods that we took , was from the Shamkori servants that are from Ganja and not from the Georgians.

And whenever you seek for a battle, know that we are ready for battle and if you boast about your cannon and guns, thanks to mercy God, our cannon and guns is no less than yours. And if your canons are one gaz [meter] know that our canons are three/four gazs [meters] and victory is [only] due to God. And how do you know if you are braver than the Qizilbash [Iranian army], you have seen yourself fighting but have not seen the fighting of Qizilbash. And you have written that to us to be ready for battle. From the time that you came to Shamss al-Dinlu and brought our people under your command, we have been preparing and we are ready for the day of battle if you want to fight. And when you wrote:" If you do not accept our words in this letter than misfortunate will strike”, we know such thoughts have brought you here. Fate has brought you from St. Petersburg to that misfortune here. With the will of God, the highest, may your misfortune become apparent.--Alborz Fallah 11:47, 9 November 2007 (UTC)Reply

  • After a brief break , I just returned to Wikipedia and see a conflict is ongoing here.Dear Atabek , I know you may have the prejudice that I'm one of those assimilated Azeris "questioning Azerbaijani Turkic identity" and participant in "linguistic and cultural ethnocide of Azerbaijanis in Iran", but believe me that is not the truth.Don't know if you have ever visited the Azeri parts of Iran , or talked with a non-political , non-asylum seeker Iranian Azeri in the USA ; but the portrait that the activists show is not the truth . Indeed all of it began after international conflicts of Iran foreign policy,and the real condition is not as they say.Don't be negative : that's better than you think !--Alborz Fallah (talk) 11:35, 17 April 2008 (UTC)Reply
"loss of linguistic identity via assimilation is a loss to Iranian culture in first place" .That's right! But the changes in linguistic issues are not done by bad intentions in Iran.Globalization and broader education of Iranian nation may have some negative side effects on local cultures (as it has on national culture of Iran as well ) , but take care not to believe all things that opposition party says against Iranian state. This especial person (Ms. Zamani) is unreliable.She works with a group that includes known persons who don't care about neither Iran nor Azerbaijan republic:a [former] officer in Israeli intelligence service plus officers responsible in Iranian desk of CIA and etc. That is sad that every former enemy of the western countries is facing ethnic clashes promoted by western media , versus unification of western countries in communities like EU ....Do you think ethnic problems in Iraq , Yugoslavia and USSR (including Qarabagh conflict) have internal or external provoking elements?
Anyway , I think many editors from Azerbaijan republic wrongly compare Iran with USSR and Iranian Azerbaijan with Azerbaijan republic ! The relation between Iranian Azeris and non-Azeri Iranians is never like Russians and Azeris . No one can count Azeris in Iran as "minority":indeed the idea of grouping people by their language is unknown in Iran .The "minorities" is only considered in religious matters, and not in language(or race - if there is any difference between races). --Alborz Fallah (talk) 08:49, 19 April 2008 (UTC)Reply

In the Russian wiki you insist that the Azerbaijani language has two alhabets.

The map on Democratic Republic of Armenia doesn't pretend that Armenians controlled all of what it claimed. It attributes the territories Azerbaijan claimed and controlled to Azerbaijan. However, the Azerbaijani map doesn't. The Azerbaijani map pretends that all of what the "D.R. Azerbaijan" claimed was safely under Azerbaijani control. Please be fair. Remember, Georgian, Armenian and Azerbaijan governments were recognized, but the borders we're still being discussed and warred over when the Soviet Union absorbed the South Caucasus. For this reason, we mustn't be biased and portray maps that fancy our political agenda, but rather, portray the political/territorial situation of the time.

You may wish to review the latest edits of an anon IP[26]. I am not sure of the specifics, but the IP appears to be doing massive changes to the article. --Kansas Bear (talk) 05:08, 17 September 2011 (UTC)Reply

Not a problem. The IP appears to be originating from the same area of other IPs that I encountered while trying to place a reference in the Orontid dynasty article[27]. Phoenicians8 and Aryamahasattva also seemed to be "closely related" to these IPs. The same IPs appear to post on User:Moosh88's talk page asking for reverts.[28] --Kansas Bear (talk) 06:41, 19 September 2011 (UTC)Reply

I did not revert your edit, but it totally lacked sources, so I'm sure you agree it can't remain there for long. Could you please add the required sources? Best regards. --Muhandes (talk) 17:45, 15 October 2011 (UTC)Reply

Hello Atabey: does the source you added say JES earned a degree in engeneering as well as in telecommunications in Baku? Sources available until now suggested his Baku degree was just in petroleum engeneering, and that his course in telecommunication was taken elsewhere, possibly in Brazzaville. -- Aflis (talk) 12:05, 23 October 2011 (UTC)Reply

Hello again: thank you for your quick answer, and for the access to the source you had found. Unfortunately, the text there does not specify the place where JEC took his course in telecommunications, not stating explicitly that is was Baku. My best guess is that it must have been Baku, because there were no appropriate facilities in Brazzaville at that stage. But it is a pity the point is not made clear, ending thus a heated controversy. Another problem is that the source you cite is a kind of a handbook; hence my question: do the authors indicate from where they got their information. -- Aflis (talk) 17:07, 24 October 2011 (UTC)Reply

Ok, that's clearer. However, my doubt still remains: where did the source (= handbook) get its information from? Let me explain: in the Angolan context, historical information given by sources linked to political parties (in power or in the opposition) has always to be checked. The rule is: "In Angola even the past is unforseeable". Maybe things are not totally different in your country... -- Aflis (talk) 12:36, 25 October 2011 (UTC)Reply

Could other users check User:MarshallBagramyan expropriation of the entire Kars article.


Could other users check User:MarshallBagramyan expropriation of the entire Kars article. This user constantly erases the other versions of the name of the city Kars in other languages (Armenian: Կարս Kars or Ղարս [ʁɑɾs] Ghars, Azerbaijani: Qars, Georgian: ყარსი Kars, Kurdish: Qers, Russian: Карс Kars) , and only lets the Armenian version of the name to stay (Armenian: Կարս Kars or Ղարս [ʁɑɾs] Ghars). Unfortunately this user's ethnocentric POV pushing by ignoring the history of the city, after the Armenian era, is still allowed to stay. He even defends it in the city article talk page. Could you follow the Kars article and prevent the constant nationalist POV reversals and editions of User:MarshallBagramyan. Thank you.

Could all Azeri users check User:Yerevanci's and User:Nocturnal781's relentless POV additions, lately in the Ermenikend article.


Could all Azeri users check User:Yerevanci's and User:Nocturnal781's relentless POV additions, lately in the Ermenikend article.

These users constantly change the correct article name of Ermenikend into the incorrect name of "Armenikend". Could all Azeri users prevent the taking over of articles about Azerbaijan by Armenian users with their biased nationalistic POV agenda. Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:25, 9 February 2012 (UTC)Reply

Atabey, you are invited!


--Comparativist1 (talk) 16:45, 27 May 2012 (UTC)Reply

Dear Atabey, you should correct the vandalization of Safavid article


If you look at the Safavid article, now alongside Azerbaijani (Turkish), it says "Old Azari" among the court, military etc...language of Safavids. And that is done without any single source, however how can one find a source for something non-existent in first place, right?

Even when you click on the sources, its only about Azerbaijani Turkish and not "Old Azari". So who lets such a mistake?

Anyway, I hope you correct it, since it seems you have the means to do so.

Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Turkey)


Hi. I was wondering if you'd be interested in 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. If interested, or you think anybody else might be interested, alert them and sign up on the Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Turkey talk page at the bottom. Thank you. --MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 14:12, 19 September 2016 (UTC)Reply

Asian 10,000 Challenge invite


Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Asia/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge and Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like South East Asia, Japan/China or India etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. At some stage we hope to run some contests to benefit Asian content, a destubathon perhaps, aimed at reducing the stub count would be a good place to start, based on the current Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon which has produced near 200 articles in just three days. If you would like to see this happening for Asia, and see potential in this attracting more interest and editors for the country/countries you work on please sign up and being contributing to the challenge! This is a way we can target every country of Asia, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant! Thank you. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 01:16, 20 October 2016 (UTC)Reply

Proposed deletion of The Engagement Ring


The article The Engagement Ring has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Fully unsourced, obviously fails GNG and NFILM, no indication of notability.

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. - Kevo327 (talk) 15:11, 14 March 2022 (UTC)Reply
