Requested article: 1812 Ottoman Empire plague epidemic[edit]

In 1812 there seems to have been a significant plague outbreak in the Ottoman Empire, which seems to have begun in Constantinople and traveled to other parts of the empire including Egypt, and later also spread outside of the empire's borders.

It seems to have had a massive impact, but it is barely covered on Wikipedia. There's an article about Caragea's plague which hit Wallachia (then an Ottoman vassal) in 1813–14, and I am currently in the process of writing an article on the 1813–14 Malta plague epidemic. Both seem to have derived from the 1812 Constantinople outbreak (it arrived in Malta via Egypt).

I think it would be useful if there would be an article covering the entire outbreak - would any members of this WikiProject be willing to help out? A source about the outbreak in Odessa can be found here.

I am also making this request on other WikiProjects including WP History, WP Medicine and WP Egypt.

I created a stub at 1812–19 Ottoman plague epidemic. Any further expansion is very welcome! Xwejnusgozo (talk) 18:57, 15 March 2020 (UTC)

Definitive list of the Sheikh-ul-Islams of the Ottoman Empire?[edit]

I found differences between the ENwiki List of Sheikh-ul-Islams of the Ottoman Empire and the TRwiki tr:Osmanlı şeyhülislamları listesi. Is there a definitive list of Sheikh-ul-Islams that can be used to check this?

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Aurat (word)[edit]

The terms "Aurat", "Arvad", "Avret", and "Awrath" may refer to: Women of Asian religious or cultural descent and identity.

Self nomination for AFD since article copy pasted to Draft:Aurat for incubation because IMHO current article title Aurat (word) is misleading and confusing leading to western systemic bias and stifling the article growth. Please find Detail reason at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Aurat (word)

I invite project members to review current and potential sourcing and weigh in on the AfD discussion. Thanks! Bookku (talk) 03:27, 10 June 2020 (UTC)

Reorganize Wikipedia:WikiProject Ottoman Empire as a task force of Wikipedia:WikiProject Former countries?[edit]

Dear users of WikiProject Turkey:

At Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Former_countries#Make_WikiProject_Ottoman_Empire_a_task_force_of_Wikipedia:WikiProject_Former_countries? I have left a proposal to convert Wikipedia:WikiProject Ottoman Empire into a task force of Wikipedia:WikiProject Former countries. I asked this project (as Turkey was the most integral part of the Ottoman Empire) and several other projects to get further feedback. Please let me know if you have questions, comments, or objections. @Quantocius Quantotius:
