- Please bear these points in mind while editing Wikipedia
- Respect copyrights – do not copy and paste text or images directly from other websites.
- Maintain a neutral point of view – this is one of Wikipedia's core policies.
- Take particular care while adding biographical material about a living person to any Wikipedia page and follow Wikipedia's Biography of Living Persons policy. Particularly, controversial and negative statements should be referenced with multiple reliable sources.
- No edit warring or sock puppetry.
- If you are testing, please use the Sandbox to .
- Do not add troublesome content to any article, such as: copyrighted text, libel, advertising or promotional messages, and text that is not related to an article's subject. Deliberately adding such content or otherwise editing articles maliciously is considered vandalism; doing so will result in your account or IP being blocked from editing.
- Do not use talk pages as discussion or forum pages as Wikipedia is not a forum.
The Wikipedia tutorial is a good place to start learning about Wikipedia. If you have any questions, see the help pages, add a question to the village pump or ask me on my talk page. By the way, you can sign your name on Talk and discussion pages using four tildes, like this: ~~~~ (the software will replace them with your signature and the date). Again, welcome!
Moving of Syro-Malabar church articles
Hello Achayan, you have moved several cathedral articles with the summary 'as per church naming convention'. However the convention on Wikipedia is not to include the denomination in the title of a church article. Please stop moving the pages.
- The list of cathedrals includes former cathedrals too, there are 3 other former cathedrals, so I'll add back the removed cathedral.
- As per the Wikipedia guidelines, the article titles must be precise and concise, so the articles should be named just "<name of the saint> Cathedral"; if there is another cathedral with the same name, the name of the place is to be added to the title, but not the denomination. At present, Syro-Malabar cathedrals are the only ones which are in the wrong format. It would be nice if you could move them back.
- By the way, I would like to also point out to you that the term 'Roman Catholic' refers to all churches who are in communion with Rome. Hence, Syro-Malabar, Syro-Malankara and Latin Rite are all part of the Roman Catholic Church.
- Only Rajadhiraja St. Mary's Jacobite Syrian Cathedral, Piravom among the Jacobite cathedrals has it but you're right, all the Malankara Orthodox cathedrals have the word Orthodox. Nevertheless, the correct way to name the articles is not to include the denomination.The Discoverer (talk) 12:17, 30 January 2014 (UTC)
- On Wikipedia, Roman Catholic Church redirects to Catholic Church and not to Latin Church. This is explained in Latin Church#"Latin Catholic" and "Roman Catholic" The Discoverer (talk) 12:22, 30 January 2014 (UTC)

Kindly refrain from Vandalizing Muvattupuzha wiki page
Hi, I can see that you have come to Muvattupuzha wiki page to contribute/edit with certain Agendas. I myself am a syrian Christian kerala congress maani follower if that is your issue. you seems to be no aware of Muvattupuzha's history. PP Esthose, N Parameshwaran Nair are all historically important figures with reference to Muvattupuzha. you seems young enough to lack the courtesy to appreciate other's contribution. BTW, I am the guy who created wikipedia articles on Muvattupuzha, Thodupuzha, Aluva and numerous places and other articles way back in 2004-5 era. It feels bad when some random guy with inflated ego and agendas imagining he knows everything about Muvattupuzha vandalizing the article. I think, you may start editing Kanjirappally, Paala, Mundakkayam, Erattupetta etc which is suitable for your beliefs. spare the article and it is a request.
Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Mary (mother of Jesus), you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Mariam and Maryam. 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.
