Original Research[edit]

Regarding this diff, I have reverted it twice now. The first time was because it was a lot of new information that had no references at all. At face value, the information looks sound, but one of Wikipedia's core policy is that of verifiability and it lacked references - I made a friendly note on the editor's talk here, this editor was not logged in at the time. My reversion was then undone by user M.chohan, with a note "I'm currently writing an article on the Mutiny of 1857 and this is an extract, please comment on lack of cite references". Well, to promptly comment, I think that if that is truly the case this constitutes clear original research and is not appropriate for Wikipedia without the proper citations.

Style[edit]

I have done a clean up on this article today to bring it more in line with the Wikipedia:Manual of Style and its associated manuals, including:

  • removed repeated links an link to plain English words per WP:OVERLINK
  • removed incorrect boldfacing per WP:BOLDFACE
  • fixed the capitalisation of headings per WP:HEAD
  • fixed the formatting of dates and numbers per WP:MOSNUM

I encourage editors to become more familiar with the Manual of Style before reverting my edits. Thanks. Ground Zero | t 15:09, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

The Lead section is excessive, so I am going to have a look at it and will look at grammar etc. also. --Soulparadox 23:19, 5 April 2012 (UTC)

Edited the "Ancient History" section, removed repeated statements, put in some links and moved one general content paragraph to the summary section (how do I quote a part of the article?). I'm not too sure about this, though. So if someone thinks it should be replaced/edited/removed, please go ahead! Sudo23 (talk) 04:30, 2 September 2012 (UTC)

copyedit[edit]

Copyedited this. Comments:

  • The population #s don't make sense. It's not possible that the total pop is 898,167 and the 0-6 pop is 669,681. Also, the gender ratios don't make sense. There can't be 883 men per thousand people.
  • "The experiment in non-monarchical form of Government in Panchala". This needs a better explanation. What experiment? What form?
  • I switched to Ahichatra, as in the WP article on the subject. If that's incorrect, the other article needs to be renamed.
  • Commented this out: रवि प्रभाकर फ़तेहगंज प0
  • Added some {{clarify}} tags.

Cheers. Feedback encouraged. Lfstevens (talk) 07:58, 6 January 2013 (UTC)
