Hovhannes Katchaznouni[edit]

Hello, I need your advice in this article, which's one section I proposed to merge to this one called The ARF Has Nothing To Do Anymore (book). --Vitilsky (talk) 11:30, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

The Swallows[edit]

Hi Raffi
Just a quick note to let you know that I have uploaded a slideshow-song video to YouTube of my song based on the poem "The Swallows" by Gourgen Mahari.
The video includes a photo (Dilijan Haghartsin), which you uploaded to wikimedia (duly credited in the description).
I hope you approve:
The Swallows
Kind regards

Plants wiki[edit]

I found a user who may be interested in your wiki; see: User talk:Pvirgatum#Panicum virgatum. On another subject, Harriet the tortoise may not have been the oldest living animal. See: List of long-living organisms#Animals. --Teratornis (talk) 00:17, 12 March 2009 (UTC)

Grom GT[edit]

You asked me recently about "Sustainable Gardens" and "Lists of botanical terms". I have looked at plants.am and it seems identical to Wikipedia in set up and much of the material directly from it. Could you please explain to me on my page what the relationship is between this wiki and wikipedia? Granitethighs (talk) 23:41, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

Plants.am[edit]

Hello Raffi. Your plants wiki looks exciting and I am interested in helping out. I can see the need for something more concise for gardeners although a lot of the content will inevitably be similar. There is not a lot of information regarding the overall aims though and the 'about' page seemed to be empty when I looked. Other than being designed for a specific audience, do the principles and motivation for the project align with those of Wikipedia? Safflle (talk) 17:21, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for that. I also found info that I was looking for here that should go in the about section. It is important before users invest time making contributions that they know you will hold the copyright. Additionally I think there should be some further clarification on what content is or is not acceptable. In particular, as a practical guide I am concerned it could be hijacked as a method of advertising certain products and become cluttered by unverifiable content. If links were then placed on Wikipedia and directed to your wiki then the similar style might lead them to believe they were still on the Wikipedia site. Just an opinion, but I think at least the color scheme should be significantly different just to make it clear that it is a separate Wiki. Safflle (talk) 13:23, 25 March 2009 (UTC)
Hey Raffi thanks for clearing that up. The new background on the main page looks good....green makes for a much more planty atmosphere too. Safflle (talk) 16:43, 25 March 2009 (UTC)
Thanks --- Ihave been thinking about doing more re. those topics (much less controversy than BLP stuff). Bigdaddy1981 (talk) 20:56, 18 May 2009 (UTC)

Armeniapedia.org deletion[edit]

Hi Raffi, I'm surprised someone nominated this article for deletion. I was too late for the vote, but I wrote a message to the administrator involved. Maybe Armeniapedia.org can at least be mentioned in other Armenian-related wikipedia articles in passing until the article is allowed back up, or in lieu of.

Dashalty[edit]

I noticed you made a recent edit there. Do you happen to know of any source material on the Hunut Gorge State Reserve and its past history (back into the Soviet era)? Tiptoethrutheminefield (talk) 22:46, 11 April 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for the link you posted on my talk page. The issue behind my question is the Topkhana Forest article. We have Azeri propaganda sources claiming that there was a national state reserve at "Tophkana Forest" as proof that "Topkhana forest" actually existed. However, the entity actually seems to be the Soviet predecessor of the "Hunot Canyon State Natural-Historical Reserve", so I was trying to find out some sources abut its history. In sources, the proper name of the current reserve seems to vary, if it is mentioned at all, as if there is almost a desire to minimize the fact of its existence (maybe because the governing authorities in Armenia are not the most environmentally friendly lot). Tiptoethrutheminefield (talk) 15:02, 12 April 2016 (UTC)

FYI[edit]

Disambiguation link notification for April 22[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Aurora Prize, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Gareth Evans. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 10:50, 22 April 2016 (UTC)

I have removed part of your addition to the above article, as it appears to have been copied directly from https://auroraprize.com/en/aurora/detail/9675/aurora-prize-weekend-roundup, a copyright web page.

Please let me know if you have any questions or if you think I may have made a mistake. — Diannaa (talk) 21:13, 26 April 2016 (UTC)

I can't see what text you removed, and the link you mention was published 4 days after my additions to Wikipedia, but the article looks fine to me. --RaffiKojian (talk) 06:11, 27 April 2016 (UTC)
