Cyprus Observer Edit

Concept of “Joie de Vivre” (Joy of Life) is intertwined with the content of Cyprus Observer e-newspaper: its editorial team strives to provide the positive luminous outlook of Cyprus everyday life and publish encouraging, inspirational news from the global world of art and culture, history and science, human life and nature.

Cyprus Observer`s concept & content reflect the wisdom of positivity and optimism: "We believe in the value of people`s creative spark, their ability to move forward changing their selves for the better. Therefore, we say “No to Negative News” and establish it as the ever-permeating principle of our informational universe. Introducing this triad of NNN (No to Negative News) and the union of Love for Luminous Life, we invite our dearest Readers to rewarding, captivating and joyful Journey: stay with Cyprus Observer, go Luminous and join our community of people who are careful, concerned, curious and are in constant process of self-development and transformation…." (as stated by the Editor-in-Chief, Taliya Khafizou, and the Head of Editorial Team, Hossein Sadri).

Area of Cyprus Edit

In Cyprus, Geography of Cyprus, and List of countries and dependencies by area, Republic of Cyprus' area is given as 9251 km2 and it's stated that value includes Northern Cypriot and the sovereign British bases' areas. I'm not objection to including Northern Cypriot area, but why do they include the sovereign British areas? Should those be subtracted from them? Or does Cyprus claim them and not recognize them as sovereign British land? Betseg (talk) 11:51, 15 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Ethiopian Flight 409 Edit

Does Ethiopian Airlines Flight 409 need to be on the "In the news" section for Cyprus? Its got almost nothing to do with Cyprus other than the fact that Cyprus Police Aviation helped in the search and rescue. Maybe in the "see also" section of Cyprus Police Aviation Unit seen as thats the glue here, the crash in and of itself happened in Lebanese waters and was an international flight with nothing to do with Cyprus.

Flag of Cyprus page Edit

There are edits being made to include the flag of the unrecognised Turkish Republic of North Cyprus onto the Flag of Cyprus page. There is a separate article for this flag and the inclusion of the content is being disputed. Can we please get a third opinion for whether this should be included or if information pertaining to the TRNC flag should remain within its own article (talk) 14:24, 23 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Women in Green's 5th Edit-a-thon Edit


Hello WikiProject Cyprus:

WikiProject Women in Green is holding a month-long Good Article Edit-a-thon event in October 2023!

Running from October 1 to 31, 2023, WikiProject Women in Green (WiG) is hosting a Good Article (GA) edit-a-thon event with the theme Around the World in 31 Days! All experience levels welcome. Never worked on a GA project before? We'll teach you how to get started. Or maybe you're an old hand at GAs – we'd love to have you involved! Participants are invited to work on nominating and/or reviewing GA submissions related to women and women's works (e.g., books, films) during the event period. We hope to collectively cover article subjects from at least 31 countries (or broader international articles) by month's end. GA resources and one-on-one support will be provided by experienced GA editors, and participants will have the opportunity to earn a special WiG barnstar for their efforts.

We hope to see you there!
