Typo redirect Vadi (disambigulation)[edit]

Information icon.svg

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Vadi (disambigulation), by another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Vadi (disambigulation) is a redirect page resulting from an implausible typo (CSD R3).

To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting Vadi (disambigulation), please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page. If the article has already been deleted, see the advice and instructions at WP:WMD. Feel free to contact the bot operator if you have any questions about this or any problems with this bot, bearing in mind that this bot is only informing you of the nomination for speedy deletion; it does not perform any nominations or deletions itself. To see the user who deleted the page, click here CSDWarnBot (talk) 14:01, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

Tithonus[edit]

Thanks for writing me. You must have seen the Ulysses article. However, I'm hardly able to answer your question.

WikiProject India Newsletter Volume V, Issue no. 1 - (June 2010)[edit]

Project News

WP:IND Newsletter is back! It's been nearly a year since the last edition, but we hope to bring out issues on a more regular basis now. The India Wikiproject was set up to increasing coverage of India-related topics on Wikipedia, and over the past few months the focus has been on improving article quality. A number of the project's featured articles underwent featured article reviews over the past year. Of these, Darjeeling and Flag of India survived the review process, while the rest were demoted. During the same period, Gangtok, Harbhajan Singh, Darjeeling and Mysore were featured on the main page respectively on August 20, September 17, November 6 and December 29, 2009. Meanwhile, articles on topics as diverse as Political history of Mysore and Coorg (1565–1760), Marwari horse and Iravan were promoted as featured articles, and respectively appeared on the main page on March 25, May 17 and May 28, 2010. Consequently, the number of FA-class articles under the project's scope dropped from 67 in August 2009 to 63 in June 2010. The number of good articles, however, saw a more than 40% increase, from 91 to 130 during the same period, while the number of featured lists saw a 33% increase from 12 to 16.

Due to the recent policy changes regarding unreferenced Biographies of Living People (BLPs), an effort was started in January 2010 to source all unreferenced BLPs coming under Wikiproject India. 1200 such articles were identified initially and more were added to the list later. Due to the sourcing effort, the number of Indian unreferenced BLPs is down to 565 currently. During February-April 2010, There was a large scale disruption of Kerala related articles by a Thrissur based IP vandal. Editing from a dynamic IP BSNL connection, the vandal changed dates of birth, death and ages of a number of Malayalam and Tamil film actors. Later he added a few international biographies to his list. He also marked some living people like Arvind Swamy as dead. A month long range block was imposed on his IP range two times and each time he came back to vandalise dates once the block expired. Currently the range has been blocked for three months till September 11, 2010.

What's New?
Current proposals and discussions
  • A discussion is underway here to reach a consensus regarding the use of Indian number names (lakh, crore etc.) in Wikipedia articles. Please participate and add your comments.
  • A discussion is in progress here in order to determine whether non-Western (including Indian) forms of classical music should be referred to by the nomenclature of art music instead of classical music. Please participate and add your comments.
  • Watchlist the Articles for Deletions page for India related discussions. Opinions from more Indian Wikipedians are required in many of the discussions.

If you've just joined, add your name to the Members section of WikiProject India. You'll get a mention in the next issue of the Newsletter and get it delivered as desired. Also, please include your own promotions and awards in future issues. Don't be shy!

Lastly, this is your newsletter and you can be involved in the creation of the next issue (Issue 2 – (July 2010)). Any and all contributions are welcome. Simply let yourself be known to any of the undersigned, or just start editing!

Looking forward toward more contributions from you!

Oriya Wikipedia[edit]

Hi, we are wondering if there is any chance you could come help us on the Oriya Wikipedia. It is currently very undeveloped and would be well-served by anybody else who knows Oriya, even the creation of several small articles is appreciated. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 149.169.85.57 (talk) 23:13, 3 August 2010 (UTC)


WikiProject India Newsletter Volume V, Issue no. 2 - November 2010[edit]

English WikiProject News

After a missed issue, the WP:IND newsletter is back on track to being a regular bimonthly feature. The Indian WikiProject has seen plenty of online and off-line action, both in English as well as other Indian languages, and we now have a bigger, better format that intends to feature content and news from the English as well as other Indian language Wikipedias.

Reaching out to Indians has been the theme of the Indian Wikiproject over the past couple of months, aiming to involve a greater number of Indians in editing both the English and Indian language Wikipedias. To this end, efforts to set up the Indian chapter of Wikimedia have moved into their final stages, and registration of the society is currently pending. An effort is underway to push for "WikiMarathons" at meetups, where attendees will be encouraged to edit the English and/or Indian language Wikipedias. This is intended to popularise Wikipedia editing among the general public. In addition, a bot to post DYK's from the Indian Wikiproject to Twitter was created and launched by User:Logicwiki.


What's New?

Regrettably, the number of Featured Articles has dropped from 63 in June to 58 at the end of October 2010. Several FAs came up for review and were delisted, while Fundamental Rights, Directive Principles and Fundamental Duties of India was saved. Meanwhile, Chalukya Dynasty appeared on the main page on July 9, 2010. Hearteningly, the number of Good Articles increased from 130 to 136 during the same period, while the number of Featured Lists remained constant at 16.

The source code for the Article Alert Bot is now available and the bot itself is expected to be up and running very shortly. This means that article alerts for the Indian Wikiproject will again be available, enabling editors to easily keep track of developments in respect of reviews, nominations, deletions etc.

The date change vandal mentioned briefly in the previous issue made a reappearance when the range block on his IP range expired in September. Consequently the block was extended till September 2011.

In October there was a heated discussion in the India project noticeboard regarding the copyright status of the Indian party symbols. The discussion was triggered by the deletion of Wiki San Roze's party symbol images by Hammersoft as copyright violations. No resolution was reached, partly because of our inability to explain to Hammersoft how election symbols in India differ from party logos. Comments are requested from anyone with a background in Indian copyright law to clarify this issue.

Regarding this edit, note that WP:CREDENTIALS is strictly against it. I would also suggest you peruse WP:UNIGUIDE if you didn't before. --Muhandes (talk) 08:12, 4 October 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for notifying me. I'm trying to improve this article and might have to entirely rewrite certain sections. I'd be deeply grateful if could help with citations especially regarding the history of IT-BHU. I'm a student there and live in Varanasi. While I have been able to find a few resources not all of them are verifiable. Thank you.  Shobhit102 | talk  08:27, 4 October 2011 (UTC)
I redid the rankings with better sources. I'm not sure what sort of help exactly you need. If you'd be more specific I'd be happy to assist. I'm happy you already understand the importance of reliably sourcing all material, the article is in really bad shape, especially considering how notable the institution is.--Muhandes (talk) 11:54, 4 October 2011 (UTC)
If you could help find citations for a section on the campus and find resources regarding its architecture that could be really helpful. Also citations for the alumni section. Thank you. Shobhit102 | talk  06:10, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
Oh, I misunderstood you. I thought you needed assistance with writing/editing/formatting, not with research. I'm afraid I don't have access to any specific resources on the subject, just the plain old Google. And right now I'm very busy with other research project. Best of luck with this one. --Muhandes (talk) 07:06, 5 October 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Tata Crucible[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Tata Crucible requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about an organized event (tour, function, meeting, party, etc.), but it does not credibly indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator. Robert McClenon (talk) 19:45, 16 February 2017 (UTC)

Hi Robert McClenon, With regard to the subject of the article that you nominated for speedy deletion, and which was subsequently deleted, allow me to provide further information. Tata Crucible is a highly regarded TV quiz show in organized across 30+ cities in India and in Singapore, with close to 4,000 teams participating. The show itself is telecasted on CNBC TV18 in India, a well-regarded channel. The quiz has been in existence for the 13 years now, and is widely covered in national media. With regard to its notability, I believe the following links should be useful:
Significant coverage as understood under the notability guidelines is clearly evident here, I would contest the deletion carried out without further investigation. Considering the mass appeal and wide coverage enjoyed by the quiz, a Wikipedia article on the subject seems certainly warranted.  Shobhit102 | talk  21:39, 16 February 2017 (UTC)

This is your final warning, if you continue to copy paste content from elsewhere on to our articles then you will be blocked. You've been warned sufficiently but yet continue to lift off sentences from external sources and paste them here or copy and paste content from one article to another without attribution. —SpacemanSpiff 07:26, 14 May 2018 (UTC)

If you do not give me adequate time to bring together sources and synthesize, it would become pretty difficult to keep writing. I have endeavoured to provide necessary sources, as would be clear.  Shobhit102 | talk  07:31, 14 May 2018 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of User:Shobhit102/sandbox[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on User:Shobhit102/sandbox requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page appears to be an unambiguous copyright infringement. This page appears to be a direct copy from from listed sources. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images taken from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites or other printed material as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If the external website or image belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text or image — which means allowing other people to use it for any reason — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. The same holds if you are not the owner but have their permission. If you are not the owner and do not have permission, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission for how you may obtain it. You might want to look at Wikipedia's copyright policy for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. —SpacemanSpiff 08:34, 14 May 2018 (UTC)

  • Our copyright policies apply to all name spaces and you are continuing to lift sentences from the New York Times and Economist with blatant disregard for it, despite being alerted to it multiple times. I'm letting it slide now but your excuses are wearing thin now. —SpacemanSpiff 08:36, 14 May 2018 (UTC)
Thank you for notifying. No, this seems to be a genuine mistake. It had been a while since I'd used the sandbox and I seem to have published the page. Sincere apologies.  Shobhit102 | talk  08:41, 14 May 2018 (UTC)

Request reason:

I seem to have been blocked for my contributions to the page Raghuram Rajan, which were deemed to be copyvio. It has been stated that this is due to a recurrence of copyvio. I admit I had been responsible for copyvio in my earlier contributions to the article Fault Lines: How Hidden Fractures Still Threaten the World Economy. It had been a while since I edited here, and needed a better understanding of WP policy as it stands. I perfectly understand the concern, and appreciate the earlier notification which enabled me to revisit policy. As can be seen, the current version of Fault Lines: How Hidden Fractures Still Threaten the World Economy would not any copyvio whatsoever. In this particular instance for which I have been blocked, I would like to point out that the content in question narrated a short episode in four sentences, and could only be expressed in a limited number of ways while not eliminating useful details. I would believe this would be admissible under Wikipedia:Close paraphrasing#When there are a limited number of ways to say the same thing. I also ensured there was inline citation of the original source. Please find below the content added, and the original source. If it the close paraphrasing is deemed admissible, I would request to be unblocked. The International Monetary Fund wanted to strengthen its financial expertise in the aftermath of the 1998 Asian financial crisis. American economist Anne Krueger, then the IMF’s deputy managing director, had recently read Rajan's book Saving Capitalism from the Capitalists, coauthored with Luigi Zingales, and reached out to him to understand if he would be interested in being chief economist. While Rajan seemed to harbour reservations initially, reportedly telling here, “Well, Anne, I don’t know any macroeconomics”, he flew out for an interview, and was subsequently appointed.[citation here] He was the youngest individual, and the first nonwestern, to be appointed the chief economist at the IMF. He served in the position from October 2003 to December 2006. But the IMF picked Rajan for a reason: it wanted to build up its financial expertise in the wake of the Asian financial crisis of the late 1990s. Anne Krueger, then the IMF’s second in command as first deputy managing director, had recently read a book Rajan coauthored with Luigi Zingales, Saving Capitalism from the Capitalists (2003), so she called Rajan. When asked if he would be interested in being chief economist, Rajan says he told her: “Well, Anne, I don’t know any macroeconomics.” To which Krueger joked, “Neither do I.” He decided to give it a shot and flew out for an interview. Thanks a lot!
