Disambiguation link notification for August 26[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Maratha titles, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Sawai (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.

Discussion of author Babasaheb Purandare at the Reliable Sources Noticeboard[edit]

There is a discussion at the RS Noticeboard as to whether Purandare qualifies as a WP:RS for the article Shivaji. Discussion posted here: Wikipedia:Reliable_sources/Noticeboard#Raja_Shivachhatrapati_by_Babasaheb_Purandare_in_the_article_Shivaji_.28Indian_history_bio.29.

October 2012[edit]

Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. I noticed your recent edit to Scindia does not have an edit summary. Please provide one before saving your changes to an article, as the summaries are quite helpful to people browsing an article's history. Thanks! Waldhorn (talk) 06:38, 7 October 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for October 7[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Jai Vilas Mahal, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Corinthian (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.

royalark.net does not meet WP:RS[edit]

Hello, I'm Ohnoitsjamie. I noticed that you made a change to an article, but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. OhNoitsJamie Talk 16:25, 13 January 2013 (UTC)

Source issues[edit]

I reviewed your recent edits to Maharshtra article and found that:

  • the added text was a close paraphrase of the first cited source, which written by an excise officer and citing wikipedia as one of its sources, is not a reliable source
  • you cited two more sources in your edit, but the text you added did not seem to be based on those sources, and worse, didn't seem to even accurately represent what those sources said (based on Google Books snippet view: do you have access to the complete text, which would be required for good understanding of the text?)

For these reasons I have reverted your edit to that page as well as to Marathi language and Marathi people pages. Please be more careful with regards to copyright, sourcing, and accurate presentation of sources, issues in the future. Feel free to start a discussion on the article talk pages to decide how the material you included can be more accurately sourced and presented in those articles. Abecedare (talk) 19:26, 10 October 2013 (UTC)

Gyan[edit]

Please do not use books published by Gyan as sources. The publisher is known to be unreliable, mainly because they copy content from us and other unreliable sources. There have been many discussions about this, including at the reliable sources noticeboard. Thanks. - Sitush (talk) 17:23, 24 November 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for April 27[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Madhavrao I, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Indian (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.

Wikipedia and copyright[edit]

Warning icon Hello Amit20081980, and welcome to Wikipedia. Your addition to History of India has had to be removed, as it appears to have added copyrighted material without permission from the copyright holder. While we appreciate your contributing to Wikipedia, there are certain things you must keep in mind about using information from your sources to avoid copyright or plagiarism issues here.

  • You can only copy/translate a small amount of a source, and you must mark what you take as a direct quotation with double quotation marks (") and a cited source. You can read about this at Wikipedia:Non-free content in the sections on "text". See also Help:Referencing for beginners, for how to cite sources here.
  • Aside from limited quotation, you must put all information in your own words and structure, in proper paraphrase. Following the source's words too closely can create copyright problems, so it is not permitted here; see Wikipedia:Close paraphrasing. (There is a college-level introduction to paraphrase, with examples, hosted by the Online Writing Lab of Purdue.) Even when using your own words, you are still, however, asked to cite your sources to verify information and to demonstrate that the content is not original research.
  • Our primary policy on using copyrighted content is Wikipedia:Copyrights. You may also want to review Wikipedia:Copy-paste.
  • If you own the copyright to the source you want to copy or are a designated agent, you may be able to license that text so that we can publish it here. However, there are steps that must be taken to verify that license before you do. See Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials.
  • In very rare cases (that is, for sources that are public domain or compatibly licensed), it may be possible to include greater portions of a source text. However, please seek help at the help desk before adding such content to the article. 99.9% of sources may not be added in this way, so it is necessary to seek confirmation first. If you do confirm that a source is public domain or compatibly licensed, you will still need to provide full attribution; see Wikipedia:Plagiarism for the steps you need to follow.
  • Also note that Wikipedia articles may not be copied without attribution. If you want to copy from another Wikipedia project or article, you can, but please follow the steps in Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia.

It's very important that contributors understand and follow these practices, as policy requires that people who persistently do not must be blocked from editing. If you have any questions about this, you are welcome to leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. Dougweller (talk) 11:03, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
