Todo[edit]

This page is now too big. First of all, for topics which are discussed in a separate wikipage, need not be detailed beyond a sentence or two in this page. For example, Hampi. Also, more references and external links needed. Currently, a lot of information is presented here, it needs to be summarized and arranged appropriately. There are too many unnecessary spaces and bold letters. And 1st image of the page should be the map indicating the region in Karnataka/India. A lot of interlinking needs to be done. Let me know if you need my help. GDibyendu (talk) 08:39, 20 April 2008 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:DRBendre.jpg[edit]

The image Image:DRBendre.jpg is used in this article under a claim of fair use, but it does not have an adequate explanation for why it meets the requirements for such images when used here. In particular, for each page the image is used on, it must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for the use in this article.
  • That this article is linked to from the image description page.

The following images also have this problem:

Too many images[edit]

There are 26 images excluding the tiny ones within bigger images (tourism map).
Requesting for reorganization and making this article more crisp. --Vinayak Kulkarni (Bangalore) (talk) 16:12, 23 September 2008 (UTC) Some images are re-organized,still the map+small images looks bit cluttered, do we need this images ? --Vinayak Kulkarni (Bangalore) (talk) 15:30, 29 September 2008 (UTC)

Article needs a major surgery, too much info which can form relevant articles on thier own. we need to clean this up. Lokesh 2000 (talk) 10:18, 17 March 2010 (UTC)

Copyright review[edit]

I am in the process of removing additional copyright problems. For a few examples of problematic text (quotations that follow do not necessarily represent the entirety of duplicated content and in some cases demonstrably do not):

The oldest works of any extent and value that have come down to us are all from the pen of the Jainas. The period of the Jainas predominance in the literary field may justly be called the Augustan Age of Kannada Literature.

That content clearly predates the article, as Wikipedia did not exist then. It was copied here.

The jamkahana industry is dominated entirely by women, predominantly Muslim. The jamkhanas are woven in punja looms. The raw unbleached yarn is bought from Pali in Rajasthan and dyed in various colours at Gajendragad, some 80 km from Navalgund. They are then distributed to the weavers according to the design of the jamkhanas. The women then wrap the yarn on a charkha wheel called rattinam to remove tangles.

This was pasted in April 2008 and so clearly postdates that source.

The women continue to wear their striking traditional costumes. These are adorned with distinctive bold embroidery that makes use of mirrors and also other embellishments such as shells and buttons. Sandur combines contemporary design with the skills of the Lambani women to put together products that suit urban tastes.

  • This source was uploaded in July 2008, though as its obviously a professional publication it probably predates that:

Note: it's much easier to read in the "text" version that the pdf. This was added in April 2008 by the same IP who added the above.

Content added here was copied from [1]. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 19:53, 21 November 2010 (UTC)

Content added here was copied from here, at least in part. Somebody, I'm sorry to say, has made a real mess of this article. :/ It shouldn't have had to happen; they were warned of this behavior before this paste. I've removed everything that contributor added in this edit, given the clear history of copyright infringement and the verification of pasting in that specific edit. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 20:35, 21 November 2010 (UTC)
This copied from this which itself used content improperly from this. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 21:28, 21 November 2010 (UTC)
This seems to have been copied from http://www.traveljournals.net/stories/5689.html a 2004 site. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 21:44, 21 November 2010 (UTC)
And this was copied from [2]. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 21:51, 21 November 2010 (UTC)
Content placed here is duplicated here. One more example of this, and I'm reverting the split to Tourism in Karnataka, as it seems pretty apparent at this point that this IP editor has hopelessly contaminated this content. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 22:20, 21 November 2010 (UTC)
And bingo: [3]. "Spread over 834.16 sq.km the Dandeli wildlife sanctuary is the second largest in Karnataka and it is contiguous with the Mahaveer sanctuary in Goa", et al. From this 2000 source. Inexplicably, the IP changed "There are innumerable trekking trails and picnic spots in Dandeli" to "There are innumerable trekking trails and fishing spots at Dandeli." Not much of a picnicker? --Moonriddengirl (talk) 22:31, 21 November 2010 (UTC)

Family Names[edit]

This section is from a dubious non-encyclopedic source, and is too comical to qualify an entry into wikipedia. 147.114.44.209 (talk) 17:03, 29 November 2010 (UTC)
