Centenary of Georgian IndependenceEdit

Hi all, I notice that the centenary of Georgian Independence will be happening on 26 May this year. Are there any plans to mark this event on Wikimedia platforms? Leutha (talk) 15:32, 17 January 2018 (UTC)

Hello @Leutha:. Thank you for bringing up an excellent point. I'm going to start a series of articles on that period of time, namely a new article on the history of Georgia from 1917 to 1921 and Georgian declaration of independence in 1918. @Kaiser matias: has done a lot of quality work to expand and improve the article on Irakli Tsereteli, which I hope can be further improved to at least a GA status. Articles such as the Democratic Republic of Georgia and Noe Zhordania are potential candidates for improvement. Your ideas are very much welcome! --KoberTalk 16:01, 17 January 2018 (UTC)
I have indeed been working on the Tsereteli article, and long term think I can even get it to FA. I have long term plans to work on some era-specific articles, though it will take a while due to my current living situation (I don't have easy access to a lot of my sources). But I am familiar with the era on an academic level (it was the focus of my master's degree), and think I can get some of the articles to a better status for sure (or at least hope to). Kaiser matias (talk) 23:39, 17 January 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for that @Kober:. A couple of weeks ago I started Conference of the Three Internationals which Tsereteli attended, and at which concerns over Georgia proved to be a big issue (Ramsay MacDonald also attended). Georgia was a significant part of the debate there. I also came across @Kaiser matias: working on the Siberian Zimmerwaldists.

Also I am based in London and have suggested we organise an event here at the London meetup (we have a long-standing Wikimedian here with Georgian connections). I am not sure how big a deal this centenary is for Georgians, but it falls on a Saturday, which could be handy. It would be nice to link up with Wikimedia Georgia. (I understand there is a four hour time difference.) Is there an appetite for an international collaboration on this occasion? Leutha (talk) 20:53, 17 January 2018 (UTC)

It's an interesting idea, and I'll do what I can for the DRG article, which as noted may be limited. And the Siberian Zimmerwaldists article was just a byproduct of working on Tsereteli, who obviously was a major factor on that (I wrote a paper on him, which is how I gathered the material for the article). Though I don't think I can be much help with a collaboration, as I'm in Korea, which is 5 hours ahead of Tblilisi and 9 ahead of London, but I certainly will do what I can. Kaiser matias (talk) 23:39, 17 January 2018 (UTC)
For what it's worth, I put the Tsereteli article up at GAC now. Whenever that finishes I'll probably send it over to FAC as well. Kaiser matias (talk) 02:12, 21 January 2018 (UTC)

I will also note that I recently thought about working on Red Army invasion of Georgia for its centenary in 2021, though obviously the May 26 anniversary is a lot closer, and something we should definitely try to aim for. With some effort I think it's possible, we just have to realize the FAC process can take about 2 months, so we'd need it submitted by mid-March at the latest.

Georgian spelling of "White Noise Movement"?Edit

I'm looking to write an article about this political movement in Georgia which seeks to change the nation's drug laws. Can anyone provide me with the correct spelling in Georgian?


Goonsquad LCpl Mulvaney (talk) 10:07, 8 April 2018 (UTC)

Huh, I wouldn't expect GoogleTranslate would get it right the first time, but it's giving me "თეთრი ხმაურის მოძრაობა" and that googles up a hit for what appears to be the group's Facebook page. Is that actually the right spelling? Goonsquad LCpl Mulvaney (talk) 10:09, 8 April 2018 (UTC)

WikiProject collaboration notice from the Portals WikiProjectEdit

The reason I am contacting you is because there are one or more portals that fall under this subject, and the Portals WikiProject is currently undertaking a major drive to automate portals that may affect them.

Portals are being redesigned.

The new design features are being applied to existing portals.

At present, we are gearing up for a maintenance pass of portals in which the introduction section will be upgraded to no longer need a subpage. In place of static copied and pasted excerpts will be self-updating excerpts displayed through selective transclusion, using the template {{Transclude lead excerpt}}.

The discussion about this can be found here.

Maintainers of specific portals are encouraged to sign up as project members here, noting the portals they maintain, so that those portals are skipped by the maintenance pass. Currently, we are interested in upgrading neglected and abandoned portals. There will be opportunity for maintained portals to opt-in later, or the portal maintainers can handle upgrading (the portals they maintain) personally at any time.


On April 8th, 2018, an RfC ("Request for comment") proposal was made to eliminate all portals and the portal namespace. On April 17th, the Portals WikiProject was rebooted to handle the revitalization of the portal system. On May 12th, the RfC was closed with the result to keep portals, by a margin of about 2 to 1 in favor of keeping portals.

There's an article in the current edition of the Signpost interviewing project members about the RfC and the Portals WikiProject.

Since the reboot, the Portals WikiProject has been busy building tools and components to upgrade portals.

So far, 84 editors have joined.

If you would like to keep abreast of what is happening with portals, see the newsletter archive.

If you have any questions about what is happening with portals or the Portals WikiProject, please post them on the WikiProject's talk page.

Thank you.    — The Transhumanist   07:39, 30 May 2018 (UTC)

A new newsletter directory is out!Edit

A new Newsletter directory has been created to replace the old, out-of-date one. If your WikiProject and its taskforces have newsletters (even inactive ones), or if you know of a missing newsletter (including from sister projects like WikiSpecies), please include it in the directory! The template can be a bit tricky, so if you need help, just post the newsletter on the template's talk page and someone will add it for you.

Freedom of religion in Georgia (country) — GPB screen shot questionEdit

In the "Other controversies" section of Freedom of religion in Georgia (country), there is a description of the January 2009 debate over a Georgia Public Broadcaster TV series which asked viewers to select the ten top Georgians in history. This series gave rise to controversy because officials of the Georgian Orthodox Church objected to a poll which included saints in addition to secular figures.

There was originally a screen shot from an advertisement for this series (File:Best Georgians GPB ad December 2008 redo.png), illustrating one of the saints included in the poll (Abo of Tiflis). Recently, the inclusion of this screen shot was challenged by editors who felt there was not sufficient justification to include this non-free image in the article (see discussion at Wikipedia:Media copyright questions#File:Best Georgians GPB ad December 2008.png).

If anyone has an opinion (one way or the other) on the appropriateness of this screen shot and whether it is or is not sufficiently important to justify its use under Wikipedia's criteria for non-free content, please feel free to weigh in at the above discussion page, and/or in the talk page for the image. I'm personally biased towards including the image (since I was the one who included it in the first place), but I want others of whatever opinion to be aware of the issue so they can comment (for or against) if they wish. — Richwales (no relation to Jimbo) 02:37, 1 July 2019 (UTC)

Stubs on Georgian historic buildingsEdit

ნიკოლოზ ზივზივაძე has been creating many articles on historic Georgian buildings. Most of them have only one reference, to a database on historical monuments of Abkhazia, and several of them have been draftified or PROD'd. I imagine many of these buildings are actually notable, but it's difficult for non-Georgian speakers to find references for them. Kober has expanded a few of these articles and perhaps other participants in this WikiProject would be interested in helping out. Spicy (talk) 17:30, 27 September 2020 (UTC)

I just noticed another user doing the same thing - Nina1009. I wonder if this is part of an edit-a-thon or school project? Spicy (talk) 17:40, 27 September 2020 (UTC)
