Merge proposal[edit]

The harbour is too small to warrant its own article. Beside that, the article is not exactly neutral. A short piece in the article LefkaKaravostasiGemikonagi seems sufficient. The Banner talk 10:32, 22 October 2014 (UTC) Corrected: The Banner talk 18:31, 22 October 2014 (UTC) Corrected again. The Banner talk 11:56, 4 November 2014 (UTC)

The harbour is nearest to Karavostasi. Lefka is farther inland. Unsurprisingly, it seems to be referred to as either the Port of Karavostasi or the Port of Gemikonagi. (talk) 12:36, 22 October 2014 (UTC)
@The Banner: I'm wondering if you could move the article to Port of Gemikonagi or somesuch in the meantime? (talk) 21:40, 22 October 2014 (UTC)
That would be confusing for others and complicating procedures. Give it ten days. When no one objects, we can merge. The Banner talk 21:51, 22 October 2014 (UTC)
Beside that, Gemikonagi and Karavostasi are identical. So I have changed the merge proposal back to Gemikonagi, as that is the present name of the human settlement. The Banner talk 13:03, 3 November 2014 (UTC)
You didn't change it 'back'; you changed it, full stop. (talk) 14:54, 3 November 2014 (UTC)

  • Don't merge

@The Banner: This title is subject to a dispute
While discussing it here in order to reach Wikipedia:Consensus
Some preferred to do things their own way and moved Gemikonagi to Karavostasi-- (talk) 11:49, 4 November 2014 (UTC)

  • I don't have an opinion on whether to merge it. There's probably quite a bit more to say about Karavostasi's port than the village itself. (talk) 18:56, 22 October 2014 (UTC)
  • This port is located in Gemikonagi(Karavostasi) which is a neighborhood in Lefka, and is officially named as Lefka Port not only during the English period but long before that too.[1]Port of Lefka, Cyprus
I therefore think that the article should not be merged with any other. --Hadgimarvi (talk) 05:41, 28 October 2014 (UTC)
Right, but it seems now it's more often referred to as Gemikonagi or Karavostasi. Thanks for the extract. (talk) 16:15, 28 October 2014 (UTC)
  • *Don't merge -Until 1974, Greeks referred this port by the names of Karavostasi, Lefka or Xeros port. For the last 40 years I don't think even the existence of this port is known or cared by many of the new Greek Cypriot generations but the Greek Cypriot authorities refer it, as Karavostasi Port. Since the administrations of the ports in North Cyprus came under the jurisdiction of Turkish Cypriots, officially and internationally the port is widely known and referred as the Port of Gemikonagi[2] but many Turkish Cypriots still refer to it as the Port of Lefke as well as Gemikonagi Port. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hadgimarvi (talkcontribs) 06:33, 29 October 2014 (UTC)


  • Aha, I forgot to change the subject of the merge proposal into Gemikonagi instead of Karavostasi. That is now fixed. The Banner talk 11:56, 4 November 2014 (UTC)


Would anybody know/care to find out if this port is still operational? (talk) 18:56, 22 October 2014 (UTC)

  • Even though Gemikonagi Port is internationaly recognised, (International Port Code: CYMPB) [1] its operations are limited since all of the ports in North Cyprus are closed to international traffic of goods, persons and services, because of the embargoes imposed on Turkish Cypriots [2]--Hadgimarvi (talk) 09:11, 28 October 2014
