Dilek articleEdit

Hi there, I see that you reverted my edit on Dilek Akagün Yılmaz, where I removed the reference to her gender. Please read the WP essay here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Writing_about_women#Male_is_not_the_default which explicitly states "Avoid labelling a woman as a female author or female politician". Yilmaz is a politician, not a female politician, just as Obama is a politician, not a male politician. MurielMary (talk) 07:49, 4 February 2018 (UTC)

List-friendly search results enhancerEdit

Hi.

I've noticed you work a lot on lists in your area of interest.

I specialize in lists.

I'm developing a user script called SearchSuite.js.

It's a prototype (aka "alpha version"), but it is functional.

You might find it useful.

First Turkish Woman SculptorEdit

Your article Sabiha Bengütaş says she is the first woman sculptor however Nermin Farukî is also described as Turkeys first woman sculptor in many sources. Both are born in 1904.

In addition to this, Mari Gerekmezyan (1913) is described as "one of Turkeys first female sculptors" however the wiki page claims she is THE first female sculptor. I believe that this might be wrong as the Turkish page says she is "one of" not "the first'. Also the page was nominated and accepted for a DYK with this wrong information. @CeeGee is highly familiar with DYN, maybe he has an opinion?--GlobalSecretary (talk) 12:53, 27 April 2018 (UTC)

Sabiha Bengütaş article appaered in the Women in Red contest. Frankly I'm not an expert on the biographies of these ladies . I solely depend on the sources. According to Women's Museum İstanbul Sabiha Bengütaş was the first student of sculpture. She and Nermin Faruki are of the same age. But Mari Gerekmezyan is much younger. Thus I think Mari's first-sculptor claim is not justified. See if you can find further sources. Cheers. Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 13:23, 27 April 2018 (UTC)
A majority of Turkish sources state that Sabiha Bengütaş is the first Turkish female sculptor, many English sources state that she is also the first Turkish female sculptor, one English language source says that Mari Gerekmezyan is the first Turkish sculptor. Several Turkish sources state that Nermin Farukî is the first Turkish sculptor or that she is one of the first. No Turkish sources state that Mari is the first Turkish sculptor, Turkish language sources do state that she is ONE OF the first Turkish sculptors and Istanbul Kadin Muzesi does say she is the first Armenian female sculptor.--GlobalSecretary (talk) 14:37, 27 April 2018 (UTC)

DYK for Mor Yakup ChurchEdit

Updated DYK query.svgOn 12 August 2018, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Mor Yakup Church, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that the Church of Saint Jacob in Nisibis in southeastern Turkey was originally the baptistery of a Syriac Orthodox cathedral which no longer exists? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Mor Yakup Church. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Mor Yakup Church), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

Ottoman Turkish scriptEdit

Hi Nedim

I've noticed your edits over the years on Ottoman history and thought if you could assist me with a small thing. On the article Ahmet Niyazi Bey would it be possible to write his name in Ottoman Turkish Arabic script? If its possible and you know how i would greatly appreciate it. Best.Resnjari (talk) 14:19, 16 November 2018 (UTC)

Sorry for not assisting. I don't know Arabaic script for in Turkey Latin scrit is used for the last 90 years instead of the traditional scrip . Cheers Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 16:57, 16 November 2018 (UTC)
Do you know of any editor who might have knowledge of Ottoman Arabic script? Best.Resnjari (talk) 04:42, 17 November 2018 (UTC)
Well, in some of the Ottoman-related articles I've created, other editors added Ottoman Turkish names. User:Nima Farid (probably from Persia) is one of them. Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 06:37, 17 November 2018 (UTC)
Cool. Thanks ! Best.Resnjari (talk) 06:59, 17 November 2018 (UTC)

Why do you keep adding Oguzname to the Selcukname article? They are not the same thing, they aren't even written in the same language. — Preceding unsigned comment added by مهر ماه سلطان (talkcontribs) 01:22, 24 January 2019 (UTC)

The name of the book is Tevârîh-i Âl-i Selçûk. But it is popularly known as Selçukname amd Oğuzname. Both Selçukname and Oğuzname are the general names of the books about Oğuz Turks and Seljuks. You have changed the the text . That's why you reject the name Oğuzname. But I rewrote the lede. I think this is clear now. (Of course there are other Selçuknames and Oğuznames) Cheers. Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 15:17, 24 January 2019 (UTC)
Selçukname does not refer to only one book. Perhaps a second article could be set up for further details about Tevârîh-i Âl-i Selçûk? This article also has to cover Ibn Bibi and the others.مهر ماه سلطان (talk) 14:27, 25 January 2019 (UTC)
I started Oğuzname. Maybe you may want to expand it. Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 08:09, 29 January 2019 (UTC)

The original name of the village is Taqa but the turkified name is Oyuklu. You can see here also the picture: [1]Kaiduo (talk) 03:31, 12 February 2019 (UTC)

Your DYK nom Uzuncaburç (Diokaesareia)Edit

Hi Nedim Ardoğa! I see with great pleasure that you have tried to nominate a new article for DYK. However, there are a number of issues, which would prevent your effort to be appear in the DYK talk page and to be reviewed or to be approved. If you don't mind I would be happy to help you in this case. Please let me know if you agree with my proposal. I find it great that you are interested in bringing articles about Turkey to the WP Main Page. CeeGee 08:30, 24 February 2019 (UTC)

After about 10 years of compulsory and (very unjust) separation, I finally gained my right to access to tr-Wiki. So I concentrate on tr-Wiki and I don't spend much time here. I was in hurry during the nomination and I might skip something. I of course would be very glad to receive help from a Wiki pall. Thanks a lot. Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 08:48, 24 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Hi Ndim Ardoğa! I see that you have reverted my input about how to get your article nominated for DYK although you had expressed your willing for help. It seems that its existence in your talk page made you unhappy. Pitty that I wasted my valuable time for you. CeeGee 10:17, 25 February 2019 (UTC)
Please try to be a bit more polite. I deleted it because the page was divided and it was almost unreadable. Anyway thanks for your effort. By the way, although I started more than 2500 articles I only applied once for a DYK. (The others were nominated by you) It was long ago and now I am not much active in en-Wiki The reason of the present nomination was rather trivial.I wanted to compare two articles in two differnt Wikis. No problem if the nomination is rejected. Cheers. Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 17:01, 25 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Nothing is inpolite in my above reply. Besides it was not dvided at all. CeeGee 19:54, 25 February 2019 (UTC)

Royal Netherlands Harbour Works - Koninklijke Nederlandsche Maatschappij voor Havenwerken N.V.Edit

Hello Nedim. I noticed a question of yours regarding the Royal Netherlands Harbour Works. The company was globally active, mainly in China in the early 1920-1930's and was independent for about 50 years.

It was founded 1 July 1912 in Amsterdam. The company bought most of the equipment of the Nederlansch-Fransche Maatschappij voor Havenwerken from Amsterdam which ceased activities in 1910. A large company that worked on the Suez Canal and was part of the East Asiatic Dredging Company (EADC).

Hope this helps. Arno-nl (talk) 18:12, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

Thank you. Koninklijke Nederlandsche maatschappij voor havenwerken N.V. took part in the construction of Mersin Harbor in 1950s, the harbor of my home city. Several years ago, while preparing a report on Mersin Harbor I tried in vain to get info about the company. Cheers.Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 19:55, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

Television transmitterEdit

Hello Nedim. You asked at the RMTR board for this article to be moved to Analog television transmitter. However, a perusal of the content finds several mentions of digital transmission. In my opinion such a move ought to be discussed further. Perhaps some material can be rearranged within this set of articles. If you still think it should be moved, you can follow the full WP:RM process which will lead to a decision after seven days. Thanks, EdJohnston (talk) 23:58, 20 April 2019 (UTC)

Proto-Turkic languageEdit

Dear Nedim, probably you can help in moderating aggressive deletion by some 188.159.243.232 by attracting some WP experts on the validity of the Family Tree model for the amalgamated languages. There is no doubt that Turkic languages are amalgamated due to the 1) incest laws that allowed marriages only to non-kindred tribes, 2) numerous populations adopting Turkic as a second language, 3) attestation of M. Kashgari that of 24 Oguz tribes, almost half have their own languages. 4) Due to their nomadic mobility, Turkic people had to co-exist and absorb numerous populations they encountered over millenniums. Encyclopedic-wise, probably the most important factor is that there is no proof that a single seed Turkic language had ever existed in nature. It is only an obsolete hypothesis. English is the best example: there was no Pra-English. English amalgamated from numerous Germanic languages, plus Celtic/Brit, plus Latin, plus French/Norman, etc. Since the term "Proto-Turkic" exists, it deserves an article, but it should not be a propaganda article to obfuscate the reality. Regards, Barefact (talk) 08:35, 30 August 2019 (UTC)

I agree with you. Anyway, I see you have reverted the deletion.Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 08:58, 3 September 2019 (UTC)
