Highest railway in Turkey?Edit

If you know the answer, make sure to add it to relevant wiki pages, especially to List of highest railways by country. Thanks! Zach (Talk) 21:20, 29 April 2021 (UTC)

Minor Turkish Settlements and geocoordinatesEdit

I've noticed quite a few Turkish minor settlements (by that I mean location with typically <200 inhabitants) are tagged as missing coordinates. I am currently going through Category:Turkey articles missing geocoordinate data and was wondering what is the policy of this project towards said settlements, are they to be redirected and merged into lists named after their provinces or is adding geocoordinates to them welcome?

There's community consensus to merge/redirect these stubs to the District article, e.g. Karaçoban. I started that process a few months ago but haven't been very active. I do copy the coordinates over so you're more than welcome to add them anytime before or after the merge. You might want to check with Deor who has been adding/refining coordinates as well. I have a list at User:Dlthewave/Turkey cleanup, completed merges are at the very bottom with Deor's comments in parantheses. –dlthewave 15:14, 12 June 2021 (UTC)
The said community consensus concerned a set of several thousand stubs which were created by the same user earlier this year and consisted of only a single sentence, and even then the consensus was more qualified and situational. My understanding is that:
  • If it's one of those articles and it says it's about a neighbourhood (rather than a village), then the preference is for redirecting;
  • If it's one of those articles and it's not about a neighbourhood, then it's up to editor discretion, without any particular objection to redirecting at scale;
  • If it's not one of those articles, then the preference is against redirecting (though obviously that's subject to editor discretion in individual cases).
If there's any recent discussion that contradicts the above, then please let me know. – Uanfala (talk) 15:39, 12 June 2021 (UTC)
Yes, that's my understanding as well, I guess I spoke too broadly since I'm mostly focused on those mass-created "neighborhood" stubs. Would you agree that it makes sense to add coordinates to all of them, since they'll be preserved through any merges/redirects? –dlthewave 22:30, 12 June 2021 (UTC)
Yes, adding coordinates sounds useful. Although maybe some caution is necessary for those stubs that are not reliably sourced. If I'm not mistaken, there are still quite a few that are based on or other similar websites, so if coordinates are added for these, then it's probably worth double-checking they're watertight. – Uanfala (talk) 14:36, 14 June 2021 (UTC)

Mimar Sinan Mosque, IstanbulEdit

If there's someone who can arrange a usable picture, please do. Gråbergs Gråa Sång (talk) 15:39, 29 July 2021 (UTC)

Can you add more to 2021 Turkish wildfires?Edit

I have never requested "In the news" but I guess this is not significant enough? To make it long enough for "Do you know" it would be great if you could add more. Also if you are nearby and can do so safely please add pics to Wikimedia commons and "Category:Wildfires in Turkey" so one can be added to the article. Chidgk1 (talk) 09:25, 30 July 2021 (UTC)

Modanlı, Ağın AfDEdit

Modanlı, Ağın has been at AfD since 18 July, relisted twice due to lack of comments. As the nom, I would encourage interested editors to participate so we can reach consensus one way or the other. –dlthewave 21:48, 1 August 2021 (UTC)
