Some tips to help you out![edit]

Hi Amr.rs, I thought I'd drop a few notes on your talk page with some help on writing articles :o)

First of all, it may be best for you to do a bit of reading, starting with the Wikipedia manual of style, which will give you a lot of information about how Wikipedia prefers its articles to be written. It's not as hard to follow as it might look; quite a bit of the information there probably won't be vital for you at first.

Second, I recommend you make a user sandbox - which is just an area you can use to practise in, and to make notes in, and to get things ready in. If you click this red link: user:Amr.rs/Sandbox, that will let you create that page (it gives you an edit window to start work in). Anything, anywhere, on the help and information pages which gives you an example, try it out in your sandbox until you're familiar with it.

For your article, the next thing you want to do is start collecting as much information as you can about it. Google searches (particularly in Books and Scholar) will be your best friend for this! Once you've found the information, the next most important thing is to start writing up each fact in your own words (very important, this), and make a note at the same time of exactly where that information came from. Build in the references as you go along; I'm going to copy in, down below this, a whole heap of help on doing references, which was produced by one of our best teachers (Chzz).

Here's another place that you'll find incredibly useful - citation templates which you can copy and paste into your sandbox, between <ref></ref> tags; you just fill in the blanks from your sources into the template, and you'll end up with nicely formatted inline citations :o) It all helps. Remember to add a references section to your sandbox (make a new line, and put ==References== on it, and type {{reflist}} on the next line, so that you can see how your citations look as you do them. Remember to save your page often! You don't want to lose your work.

Hopefully this will give you a good start and make life easier for you.

One last thing to keep as a motto: "It's better to write one good, well-referenced, nicely-presented article than it is to create fifty unreferenced one-line stubs!" Pesky (talkstalk!) 14:04, 28 October 2011 (UTC)

How references work[edit]

Simple references[edit]

These require two parts;

a)
Chzz is 98 years old.<ref> "The book of Chzz", Aardvark Books, 2009. </ref>

He likes tea. <ref> [http://www.nicecupofteaandasitdown.com Tea website] </ref>
b) A section called "References" with the special code "{{reflist}}";
== References ==
{{reflist}}

(an existing article is likely to already have one of these sections)

To see the result of that, please look at user:chzz/demo/simpleref. Edit it, and check the code; perhaps make a test page of your own, such as user:Amr.rs/reftest and try it out.

Named references[edit]

Chzz was born in 1837. <ref name=MyBook>
"The book of Chzz", Aardvark Books, 2009. 
</ref> 

Chzz lives in Footown.<ref name=MyBook/>

Note that the second usage has a / (and no closing ref tag). This needs a reference section as above; please see user:chzz/demo/namedref to see the result.

Citation templates[edit]

You can put anything you like between <ref> and </ref>, but using citation templates makes for a neat, consistent look;

Chzz has 37 Olympic medals. <ref> {{Citation
 | last = Smith
 | first = John
 | title = Olympic medal winners of the 20th century
 | publication-date = 2001
 | publisher = [[Cambridge University Press]]
 | page = 125
 | isbn = 0-521-37169-4
}}
</ref>

Please see user:chzz/demo/citeref to see the result.

For more help and tips on that subject, see user:chzz/help/refs.

Here's a little bit of magic which can save you an awful lot of time and effort![edit]

You might want to consider using this tool - (tools:~dispenser/cgi-bin/webreflinks.py) - it makes your life a whole heap easier, by filling in complete citation templates for your links. All you do is install the script on Special:MyPage/common.js, or or Special:MyPage/vector.js, then paste the bare url (without [...] brackets) between your <ref></ref> tabs, and you'll find a clickable link called Reflinks in your toolbox section of the page (probably in the left hand column). Then click that tool. It does all the rest of the work (provided that you remember to save the page! It doesn't work for everything (particularly often not for pdf documents), but for pretty much anything ending in "htm" or "html" (and with a title) it will do really, really well all by itself. For those it can;t do by itself, it gives you a pull-down (or up) menu of templates to choose from, which you can then fill in manually. Often the problem is "No title found" - sometimes the title is obvious (especially if it's a pdf), bit, if not, just open the page yourself and choose soemthing appropriate if there's not already a clear title there. Happy editing! Pesky (talkstalk!) 14:04, 28 October 2011 (UTC)

re: Thanks for the fix[edit]

No problem - don't worry about it. Hopefully his 100th 100 isn't too far away! Lugnuts (talk) 18:41, 8 November 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Varsha Gupta[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 Varsha Gupta 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 a person or group of people, but it does not 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 see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Night of the Big Wind talk 13:23, 14 November 2011 (UTC)

Deletion discussion about Varsha Gupta[edit]

Hello, Abdul raja, and thanks for contributing to Wikipedia!

I wanted to let you know that some editors are discussing at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Varsha Gupta whether the article Varsha Gupta should be in Wikipedia. I encourage you to comment there if you think the article should be kept in the encyclopedia.

The deletion discussion doesn't mean you did something wrong. In fact, other editors may have useful suggestions on how you can continue editing and improving Varsha Gupta, which I encourage you to do. If you have any questions, feel free to ask at the Help Desk.

Thanks again for your contributions! Night of the Big Wind talk 14:26, 14 November 2011 (UTC)

Maalai Nerathu Mazhaithuli[edit]

Hi. I have declined your speedy deletion request of Maalai Nerathu Mazhaithuli, as "irrelevant and wrong data" does not constitute vandalism. You might consider removing or correcting the inaccuracies, but if you really think it needs to be deleted, I'd suggest a PROD request with an explanation of what is wrong with it -- Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 15:18, 14 November 2011 (UTC)

Googly[edit]

Thanks for your efforts, but if you start naming notable googly bowlers, you're heading for difficulties. Every cricketer who has played first-class or List A cricket is "notable", as well as some who haven't. Choosing which googly bowlers you'll include takes you into WP:NPOV problems. Thanks for your edits though - would you like to join The Cricket WikiProject? --Dweller (talk) 11:33, 18 November 2011 (UTC)

Hi, Saw that you have contributed to the article on Cyrus_Mistry. just wanted to inform you that the article already exists as Cyrus_Pallonji_Mistry.

Article on Why this Kolaveri Di?[edit]

Hi, The lyrics goes "Mama notes yeduthukko..appadiyee kaile SAX yeduthukko" and not Snacks. It has been termed wrongly in the video too...Its SAX because (apart from that he says SAX) he asks the guy to play "pepe pein pe" using the SAX which follows. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Deepns7 (talkcontribs) 10:24, 24 November 2011 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Raviprakash[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Raviprakash has been proposed for deletion because, under Wikipedia policy, all newly created biographies of living persons must have at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article. The nominator also raised the following concern:

All biographies of living people created after March 18, 2010, must have references.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within ten days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one.  Blanchardb -MeMyEarsMyMouth- timed 06:38, 29 November 2011 (UTC)

Comments.[edit]

I get it. I will do it hence forth. But I removed two reviews because they were written in broken english. Not worthy of being in wikipedia. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Filmreviewzz (talkcontribs) 11:45, 2 December 2011 (UTC)

No, not just the sentence. The entire review is in broken english. I can't edit that. So yeah, not worth being quoted in wikipedia. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Filmreviewzz (talkcontribs) 12:06, 2 December 2011 (UTC)

File source and copyright licensing problem with File:Virendar-Sehwag-Photo.jpg[edit]

File Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading File:Virendar-Sehwag-Photo.jpg. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status and its source. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously.

If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the page from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of the website's terms of use of its content. If the original copyright holder is a party unaffiliated with the website, that author should also be credited. You will also need to state under what licensing terms it was released. Please refer to the image use policy to learn what files you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. The page on copyright tags may help you to find the correct tag to use for your file.

Please add this information by editing the image description page. If the necessary information is not added within the next days, the image will be deleted. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please also check any other files you may have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged. Here is a list of your uploads. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. ww2censor (talk) 04:02, 9 December 2011 (UTC)

Speedy Deletion Tag for Interviewstreet[edit]

Hi there. The reason for the speedy deletion nomination isn't that the page does not have references, but that there is no real notability as defined here:Wikipedia:Notability_(organizations_and_companies). Perhaps you can provide more material to show the importance of the company?--Branwen70 (Talk) 17:24, 13 December 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Interviewstreet[edit]

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

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

A tag has been placed on Interviewstreet requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article, which appears to be about a real person, individual animal(s), an organization (band, club, company, etc.), or web content, does not indicate how or why the subject of the article is important or significant: that is, why an article about it should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you can assert the importance of the subject, Speedy delete contest button.png. Clicking that button will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the article's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself. You may freely add information to the article that would confirm the subject's notability under Wikipedia guidelines.

See the guidelines for specific types of articles: biographies, websites, bands, or companies. Branwen70 (Talk) 17:24, 13 December 2011 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. In Desi Boyz, you recently added a link to the disambiguation page John Abraham (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

December 2011[edit]

Your recent editing history at Desi Boyz shows that you are in danger of breaking the three-revert rule, or that you may have already broken it. An editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Breaking the three-revert rule often leads to a block.

If you wish to avoid being blocked, instead of reverting, please use the article's talk page to discuss the changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection. You may still be blocked for edit warring even if you do not exceed the technical limit of the three-revert rule if your behavior indicates that you intend to continue to revert repeatedly.

You have been blocked from editing for a short time for your disruption caused by edit warring and violation of the three-revert rule at Desi Boyz. During a dispute, you should first try to discuss controversial changes and seek consensus. If that proves unsuccessful you are encouraged to seek dispute resolution, and in some cases it may be appropriate to request page protection. If you would like to be unblocked, you may appeal this block by adding the text {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}} below this notice, but you should read the guide to appealing blocks first. Swarm X 04:50, 18 December 2011 (UTC)
Upon further review of the user you were reverting, I've decided to ignore the 3RR violation and unblock you. Still, though, please mind the three revert rule in the future, remember that there are very few exceptions, and disruptive editing (not vandalism) should be reported at WP:ANI rather than edit-warred over. Thanks, Swarm X 05:02, 18 December 2011 (UTC)
In response to your question at AN3, why do you say edits like this were vandalism? They were trying to advertise a website, which would be spam, but not vandalism. I don't think they were deliberately trying to damage Wikipedia. Swarm X 19:23, 18 December 2011 (UTC)

ISO 15919 in Wikipedia[edit]

Hello. Sorry for the late reply. ISO 15919 Transliteration of Devanagari and Related Indic Scripts into Latin Characters (ISO 15919) is an international standard for the transliteration of Indic scripts to the Latin alphabet formed in 2001. It uses diacritics to map the much larger set of Brahmic consonants and vowels to the Latin script. Link

It is unanimously agreed in Wikipedia that ISO 15919 would be used to transliterate Indic scripts. Link

As a transliteration scheme, ISO 15919 is truthful to script, not pronunciation.

Tamil script uses the same character to represent both an unvoiced stop and its voiced equivalent. In this case, the letter 'டி' is always transliterated as 'ṭi' although it is pronounced as [ʈi] (unvoiced) or [ɖi] (voiced) depending on the situation. Link

Hope this helps. Yours faithfully, Kotakkasut. 18:34, 8 January 2012 (UTC)

No problem man! If you still have any doubts, you could try using Google Translate as it also provides a tool to transliterate Tamil text into ISO 15919. Just press the 'Read phonetically' button (it looks something like this -> Ä) when typing in Tamil. The 'Listen' button however is still not accurate as it is still be in beta testing. Have a nice day. Yours faithfully, Kotakkasut. 18:47, 8 January 2012 (UTC)

What did you think about the deletion notice you received?[edit]

Hi Abdul raja,

In November you received a message about either "Nomination for deletion" or "Proposed deletion" of an article you created. I'd like to ask you a few quick questions:

  1. Was the message helpful? Were the instructions clear and easy to follow?
  2. If not, how do you think the message could be improved?
  3. What do you think about the deletion process in general? Do you understand how to contest a deletion?

You can feel free to answer on my talk page or send me your response by email (mpinchuk@wikimedia.org). (I won't quote you or link your answers to your username if you don't feel comfortable with that.) Your feedback is incredibly useful for improving the content of deletion notifications, so please take a minute to think about and answer these questions. Thank you!
