Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessaryily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request it's removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:

  • http://manipal.info/placestovisit.html
    Triggered by \bmanipal\.info\b on the local blacklist

From your friendly hard working bot.—cyberbot II NotifyOnline 18:41, 8 December 2013 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Resolved This issue has been resolved, and I have therefore removed the tag, if not already done. No further action is necessary.—cyberbot II NotifyOnline 06:07, 12 December 2013 (UTC)

Article name[edit]

This has recently been moved from Murudeshwara to Murudeshwar with the reason 'as per Karnataka government'. This is not a valid reason in Wikipedia terms. Usage checks on Google books show Murudeshwar, Karnataka outnumbered by Murudeshwara, Kar. by 105 to 195. This article should therefore be back at Murudeshwara. Imc (talk) 18:35, 21 April 2014 (UTC)

Imc, you are vandalizing articles by changing the spelling to sound like Kannada names. Kindly revert your changes. It is Murudeshwar and not Murudeshwara. As mentioned earlier to you, your edits are questionable and eligible for revert. They will be reverted soon.

MurudeshwarMurudeshwara – The most common name, as shown in the Google book search results for ‘Murudeshwara, Karnataka’, see above in this page. Web search returns similar ratios. Imc (talk) 19:03, 30 April 2014 (UTC)

  • Support as nominator. Imc (talk) 19:07, 30 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Oppose Google book search is not the basis for Wikipedia Common Name not is it the criteria for deciding the article name. Why do you want to use Google Book Search as the yardstick for moving the article. "Murudeshwar" is widely used by people and governments in India. Do not move this page. Pdheg Talk 20:14, 30 April 2014 (UTC)
@Pdheg:: Widely used by people in India? You took a survey of everyone in the country to conclude this? It's high time you stop your move warring. You have even copied my signature!  Abhishek  Talk 05:12, 1 May 2014 (UTC)
@Abhishek191288:: I am not sure who copied from whom. I now have my distinct signature of my own. Why do you want to consider only the Tourism department website as the official website? PdhegTalk to me 17:09, 1 May 2014 (UTC)
@Pdheg: Pretty obious that you have copied from me given the fact that you have actively started editing only since Jan 2014 and I have had this signature since 2010 Face-tongue.svg. Anyways, this is not the place to debate that. I hope you can clearly read my comments below where I have weghed in based on two thins: 1. The tourism Department and 2. The number of GHits.  Abhishek  Talk 16:58, 5 May 2014 (UTC)
You need to read WP:Title before making assertions such as Google book search is not the basis for Wikipedia Common Name not is it the criteria for deciding the article name. No single thing is the criterion, but book search is one of the strongest. Restrict it to wider web hits instead and Murudeshwara still gets about 2.4 million web hits and Murudeshwar gets only 1 million (which Abishek has already pointed out below).
