Bengal Film Journalists' Association - Best Actor Award[edit]

Could you or some other editor from WP:Bengal please fill in the missing data in this article. This article has been in the WP:Intensive Care Unit since 17 October 2007. Kathleen.wright5 05:54, 26 January 2008 (UTC)

West Bengal map error[edit]

Hi, I'd like to draw your attention to the West Bengal map. The boudaries of districts Bankura and Bardhaman are grossly wrong. The whole Asansol sub division has gone into Bankura. Can you change them and load a newer version? You can refer to the Bardhaman district map for this.Crackjack (talk) 22:24, 24 January 2008 (UTC)

Other articles[edit]

Please have a look at Sutanuti and Kalikata - P.K.Niyogi 13:20, 2 August 2007 (UTC)

Bangladesh portal[edit]

Hi, I'd like to draw your attention to Bangladesh portal. I have tried to address the concerns in earlier peer review and checked the portal against Featured portal criteria. Based on this I think it is proper time to push for Featured Portal status for Bangladesh Portal, which will be an important milestone for WikiProject Bangladesh. But to achieve this I need help from you. Please participate in the on-going discussion on the talk page and give me your valuable inputs.-Arman Aziz 03:43, 3 August 2007 (UTC)

DYK[edit]

Updated DYK query On August 6, 2007, Did you know? was updated with a fact from the article ACS Chemical Biology, which you created or substantially expanded. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the Did you know? talk page.

Thanks[edit]

Thanks for your kind words. There is hardly anybody else working seriously on West Bengal related topics. You had started so well. Now, that you are back, it will take some warming up for you to return to your old form. My literature links are weak and yours were so good. Even in biographies, you did so well. You have started again with a DYK, but I am sure that there would be many many more from you. Regards. P.K.Niyogi 16:32, 9 August 2007 (UTC) ... Now, thanks for the medal. Regards. - P.K.Niyogi 02:48, 11 August 2007 (UTC)

Hi there[edit]

Thanks! I'd be happy to look over anything you think needs another pair of eyes. I'll have a look at the Wiki section, more publications are always welcome. Tim Vickers 15:57, 13 August 2007 (UTC)

{{INA stub}}[edit]

Hi Antorjal, wonder if you can help. I created a stub for articles to with Azad Hind and Indian National Army, and it has just been nominated deletion on what I thought were more to with MoS grounds rather than substance and importance of the content. I don't know wether you know anything about this at all, but if you do (or if you have any comments), could you please have a look here. Cheers.Rueben lys 12:19, 14 August 2007 (UTC)

Independence Day[edit]

Thanks for your good wishes. I also wish you all the best. - P.K.Niyogi 02:24, 16 August 2007 (UTC)

It is good that you liked the article on Janbazar. I think I shall be able to do a few more articles on Kolkata neighbourhoods. There is another Indian editor, who is contributing enormously - Amarrg. It is a matter of time that he overtakes me in DYKs. So far, he has been really consistent. I am not well up on literature. I have not read that book. - P.K.Niyogi 05:04, 18 August 2007 (UTC)

Detailed histories needed[edit]

I today saw Sannyasi Rebellion created by you. Thank you for it. The impact and scale of Sannyasi Rebellion is deliberately underestimated by British historians. Total number of casualties, though uncertain, was much more. Bengal Famine of 1769-71 needs more space, because it was the immediate cause of Sannyasi Rebellion.

I recently expanded Bengali Brahmins to more than double its size, but I feel some points are dubious. Unfortunately, other editors are not interested in it at present. I had more data on Maithil Brahmin which I am still working on. Similar material of Bengali, Utkala and Shakadvipi (recently created by me) brahmins is lacking. I have similar plans for other branches. Unfortunately, non-brahmanical castes have not preserved such data, excepting the aristocracy. -Vinay_Jha 13:48, 27 August 2007 (UTC)

Unspecified source for Image:3116.gif[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg

Thanks for uploading Image:3116.gif. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, then you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, then their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Fair use, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 04:20, 16 September 2007 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Phil Sandifer 04:20, 16 September 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:3116.gif[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:3116.gif. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Phil Sandifer 04:20, 16 September 2007 (UTC)

DYK Medal question[edit]

Hi, Antor. We are going to start DYK section in Bengali Wikipedia. If we want to initiate DYK medals there what could we do. Can we use the same medals which are used in english wikipedia. If so how? If not so, what can we do? Help me please with this. Regards --Tarif from Bangladesh 05:46, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use Image:Narayan_Debnath.jpg[edit]

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:Narayan_Debnath.jpg. I noticed the 'image' page specifies that the image is being used under fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first fair use criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed image could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this image is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the image description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original Replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace the fair use image by finding a freely licensed image of its subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or a similar) image under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our fair use criteria. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, fair use images which could be replaced by free-licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if not used in an article), per our Fair Use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. — pd_THOR | =/\= | 00:19, 27 September 2007 (UTC)

Greetings[edit]

Wish you all the best for Puja. I am sure you are enjoying the festive days. Immediately after Durga Puja I will be visiting Bangladesh for about a fortnight. Regards - P.K.Niyogi 11:58, 17 October 2007 (UTC)

শুভ দূর্গা পুজা[edit]

S344 durga-idol-golden.png
শুভ দূর্গা পুজা !!!
প্রিয় Antorjal,
পুজো মানে নীল আকাশ

শীতল হাওয়ায় শিউলির সুবাস
পুজো মানে নদীর ধারে সাদা কাশ।

পুজো মানে পথ চাওয়া
কোনো আপন কে ফিরে পাওয়া
ভোরের বেলায় শিশির ছোঁয়া।

পুজো মানে উতলা মন
পুজা মন্ডপে কাওকে দেওয়া মন
পুজা মানে নতুন নতুন কাপড়ের কড়কড়ানি
আর মন্ডপে মাকে বরণ।

পুজো মানে হাসির ছটা
কল-কল কথা আর সাজা-গোজা
মায়ের কাছে আবদার
আর গরম পুজার বাজার।

পুজো মানে আকাশের গায়ে পেজা তুলোর মতো ভাসা
নতুন বছরের জন্য প্রাণ ভরে নেওয়া আশা
ধুনোর গন্ধে ধাকের বাদ্য আর অষ্টমীর অঞ্জলি
প্রার্থনা আর পাড়ায় পাড়ায় আগমণির সুর।

পুজো মানে, বন্ধু আমার, বাঙালীর প্রান,

পুজো মানে আমাদের জীবনের সম্মিলিত গান।

আশা করি দুর্গা পুজা আপনার ভাল কাটুক আর দূর্গা মা আপনাকে আর আপনার পরিবারকে ভাল রাখবে। আপনাকে আর আপনার পরিবারকে আমার শুভ বিজয়ার শুভেচ্ছা। Amartyabag TALK2ME 01:46, 18 October 2007 (UTC)

Ideas[edit]

Well an obvious initial idea is that you could begin including links to the relevant Wikipedia articles in the discussion pages at ACSCB, as the BBC has begun to do with its radio programs (link). We could then back-link from the talk page with a template that says something along the lines of "New research at ACS relevant to this article." Tim Vickers 14:50, 18 October 2007 (UTC)

One place to highlight it would be Wikipedia:Wikipedia Signpost/Newsroom/Suggestions, you could also see if the PodCast WikipediaWeekly Wikipedia talk:WikiProject WikipediaWeekly would be interested. Tim Vickers 19:33, 22 October 2007 (UTC)

about nonte-phonte pics[edit]

Dear Antorjal, have you considered uploading the pictures of Nonte-Phonte and other comics by Narayan Debnath in wikimedia commons. We could use them in Bangal wiki then. Thank you. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 123.49.40.166 (talk) 05:56, 27 December 2007 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Image:Bijon bhattacharya.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Image:Bijon bhattacharya.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section I8 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is available as a bit-for-bit identical copy on the Wikimedia Commons under the same name, or all references to the image on Wikipedia have been updated to point to the title used at Commons.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on [[ Talk:Image:Bijon bhattacharya.jpg|the talk page]] explaining your position, 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, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the article does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that a copy be emailed to you. Sdrtirs (talk) 02:23, 13 April 2008 (UTC)

একটি আবেদন[edit]

আপনি নিশ্চয়ই জানেন যে কয়েক বছর হল উইকিপিডিয়া একটি বাংলা সংস্করণ চালু করেছে। পশ্চিমবঙ্গ ও বাংলাদেশের অবদানকারীদের দ্বারা পরিচালিত এই সংস্করণে এই মুহুর্তে অন্তর্ভুক্ত হয়েছে উনিশ হাজারেরও বেশি নিবন্ধ। তবে উইকিপিডিয়ার অন্যান্য ভাষার সংস্করণের সঙ্গে তুলনা করলে বলতে হয় এই সংখ্যাটি কিছুই নয়। এখনও এই সংস্করণটিকে বিভিন্ন বিদেশি ভাষার উইকিসংস্করণের সঙ্গে সমকক্ষ করতে অনেক অনেক পথ বাকি। আর আপনি যদি আমাদের এই পথ চলায় সহায়তা করতে চান, যদি আপনার মাতৃভাষাকে সমস্ত বিশ্বের সম্মুখে মাথা তুলে দাঁড়াতে সাহায্য করতে চান, তবে আপনাকে স্বাগত জানাই।

কম্পিউটারে বাংলা লেখা থেকে শুরু করে, উইকিতে নিবন্ধ সম্পাদনা পর্যন্ত আমরা অবদানকারীদের সর্বতো সাহায্য দান করে থাকি। এই সংগঠনের কাজকর্ম সুষ্টুভাবে সম্পাদনা ও পারস্পরিক সহযোগিতার ব্যাপারটি সহজতর করার জন্য এবং বাংলায় ইন্টারনেট তথা উইকিপিডিয়ায় লেখালিখির প্রচার চালানোর জন্য আমরা, বাংলা উইকিপিডিয়ার অবদানকারীরা একটি ওয়েব কমিউনিটিও স্থাপন করেছি। আমাদের এই কমিউনিটিতেও সদস্য হবার জন্য আমন্ত্রণ জানাচ্ছি আপনাকে। এই কমিউনিটির মাধ্যমে আপনি উইকিপিডিয়ার অন্যান্য সদস্যদের সঙ্গে যোগাযোগ স্থাপন তথা উইকিপিডিয়ার বিভিন্ন সমন্বয় ও সাংগাঠনিক কাজের সঙ্গে অবগত হতে, এমনকি নিজেকে যুক্ত করতেও পারবেন।

আশা করি, বাংলা উইকিপিডিয়ার সার্বিক উন্নতির এই অভিযানে আপনিও আমাদের সহযাত্রী হবেন। ধন্যবাদ ও শুভেচ্ছান্তে Jonoikobangali (talk) 16:52, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

Unreferenced BLPs[edit]

Information.svg Hello Antorjal! Thank you for your contributions. I am a bot alerting you that 2 of the articles that you created are tagged as Unreferenced Biographies of Living Persons. The biographies of living persons policy requires that all personal or potentially controversial information be sourced. In addition, to ensure verifiability, all biographies should be based on reliable sources. If you were to bring these articles up to standards, it would greatly help us with the current 2,634 article backlog. Once the articles are adequately referenced, please remove the {{unreferencedBLP}} tag. Here is the list:

  1. Amlan Dutta - Find sources: "Amlan Dutta" – news · newspapers · books · scholar · JSTOR · free images · wikipedia library
  2. Anil Ghorai - Find sources: "Anil Ghorai" – news · newspapers · books · scholar · JSTOR · free images · wikipedia library

Thanks!--DASHBot (talk) 07:03, 25 January 2010 (UTC)

GA reassessment of Genetic code[edit]

I have conducted a reassessment of the above article as part of the GA Sweeps process. You are being notified as you have made a number of contributions to the article. I have found a number of concerns which you can see at Talk:Genetic code/GA1. I have de-listed the article as the referencing is so poor. However, if improvements are made bringing the article up to standards, the article may be nominated at WP:GAN. If you feel this decision has been made in error, you may seek remediation at WP:GAR. Thanks. Jezhotwells (talk) 21:54, 26 February 2010 (UTC)



WikiProject India Newsletter Volume V, Issue no. 1 - (June 2010)[edit]

Project News

WP:IND Newsletter is back! It's been nearly a year since the last edition, but we hope to bring out issues on a more regular basis now. The India Wikiproject was set up to increasing coverage of India-related topics on Wikipedia, and over the past few months the focus has been on improving article quality. A number of the project's featured articles underwent featured article reviews over the past year. Of these, Darjeeling and Flag of India survived the review process, while the rest were demoted. During the same period, Gangtok, Harbhajan Singh, Darjeeling and Mysore were featured on the main page respectively on August 20, September 17, November 6 and December 29, 2009. Meanwhile, articles on topics as diverse as Political history of Mysore and Coorg (1565–1760), Marwari horse and Iravan were promoted as featured articles, and respectively appeared on the main page on March 25, May 17 and May 28, 2010. Consequently, the number of FA-class articles under the project's scope dropped from 67 in August 2009 to 63 in June 2010. The number of good articles, however, saw a more than 40% increase, from 91 to 130 during the same period, while the number of featured lists saw a 33% increase from 12 to 16.

Due to the recent policy changes regarding unreferenced Biographies of Living People (BLPs), an effort was started in January 2010 to source all unreferenced BLPs coming under Wikiproject India. 1200 such articles were identified initially and more were added to the list later. Due to the sourcing effort, the number of Indian unreferenced BLPs is down to 565 currently. During February-April 2010, There was a large scale disruption of Kerala related articles by a Thrissur based IP vandal. Editing from a dynamic IP BSNL connection, the vandal changed dates of birth, death and ages of a number of Malayalam and Tamil film actors. Later he added a few international biographies to his list. He also marked some living people like Arvind Swamy as dead. A month long range block was imposed on his IP range two times and each time he came back to vandalise dates once the block expired. Currently the range has been blocked for three months till September 11, 2010.

What's New?
Current proposals and discussions
  • A discussion is underway here to reach a consensus regarding the use of Indian number names (lakh, crore etc.) in Wikipedia articles. Please participate and add your comments.
  • A discussion is in progress here in order to determine whether non-Western (including Indian) forms of classical music should be referred to by the nomenclature of art music instead of classical music. Please participate and add your comments.
  • Watchlist the Articles for Deletions page for India related discussions. Opinions from more Indian Wikipedians are required in many of the discussions.

If you've just joined, add your name to the Members section of WikiProject India. You'll get a mention in the next issue of the Newsletter and get it delivered as desired. Also, please include your own promotions and awards in future issues. Don't be shy!

Lastly, this is your newsletter and you can be involved in the creation of the next issue (Issue 2 – (July 2010)). Any and all contributions are welcome. Simply let yourself be known to any of the undersigned, or just start editing!

Looking forward toward more contributions from you!

Disputed non-free use rationale for File:Batul cover.jpg[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thank you for uploading File:Batul cover.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this file on Wikipedia may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the file description page and adding or clarifying the reason why the file qualifies under this policy. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your file is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a non-free use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for files used under the non-free content policy require both a copyright tag and a non-free use rationale.

If it is determined that the file does not qualify under the non-free content policy, it might be deleted by an administrator within a few days in accordance with our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 17:38, 4 July 2010 (UTC)

WikiProject India Newsletter Volume V, Issue no. 2 - November 2010[edit]

English WikiProject News

After a missed issue, the WP:IND newsletter is back on track to being a regular bimonthly feature. The Indian WikiProject has seen plenty of online and off-line action, both in English as well as other Indian languages, and we now have a bigger, better format that intends to feature content and news from the English as well as other Indian language Wikipedias.

Reaching out to Indians has been the theme of the Indian Wikiproject over the past couple of months, aiming to involve a greater number of Indians in editing both the English and Indian language Wikipedias. To this end, efforts to set up the Indian chapter of Wikimedia have moved into their final stages, and registration of the society is currently pending. An effort is underway to push for "WikiMarathons" at meetups, where attendees will be encouraged to edit the English and/or Indian language Wikipedias. This is intended to popularise Wikipedia editing among the general public. In addition, a bot to post DYK's from the Indian Wikiproject to Twitter was created and launched by User:Logicwiki.


What's New?

Regrettably, the number of Featured Articles has dropped from 63 in June to 58 at the end of October 2010. Several FAs came up for review and were delisted, while Fundamental Rights, Directive Principles and Fundamental Duties of India was saved. Meanwhile, Chalukya Dynasty appeared on the main page on July 9, 2010. Hearteningly, the number of Good Articles increased from 130 to 136 during the same period, while the number of Featured Lists remained constant at 16.

The source code for the Article Alert Bot is now available and the bot itself is expected to be up and running very shortly. This means that article alerts for the Indian Wikiproject will again be available, enabling editors to easily keep track of developments in respect of reviews, nominations, deletions etc.

The date change vandal mentioned briefly in the previous issue made a reappearance when the range block on his IP range expired in September. Consequently the block was extended till September 2011.

In October there was a heated discussion in the India project noticeboard regarding the copyright status of the Indian party symbols. The discussion was triggered by the deletion of Wiki San Roze's party symbol images by Hammersoft as copyright violations. No resolution was reached, partly because of our inability to explain to Hammersoft how election symbols in India differ from party logos. Comments are requested from anyone with a background in Indian copyright law to clarify this issue.

Non-free rationale for File:Nagarikscreenshot.gif[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Nagarikscreenshot.gif. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 12:15, 11 August 2011 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Batul cover.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Batul cover.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use.

You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

PLEASE NOTE:

  • I am a bot, and will therefore not be able to answer your questions. If you have a question, place a {{helpme}} template, along with your question, beneath this message.
  • I will remove the request for deletion if the file is used in an article once again.
  • If you receive this notice after the image is deleted, and you want to restore the image, click here to file an un-delete request.

WikiProject India Tag & Assess 2012 Contest[edit]

Hello friends, we are a number of editors from WikiProject India have got together to assess the many thousands of articles under the stewardship of the project, and we'd love to have you, a fellow member, join us. These articles require assessment, that is, the addition of a WikiProject template to the talk page of an article, assessing it for quality and importance and adding a few extra parameters to it.

As of March 11, 2012, 07:00 UTC, WikiProject India has 95,998 articles under its stewardship. Of these 13,980 articles are completely unassessed (both for class and importance) and another 42,415 articles are unassessed for importance only. Accordingly, a Tag & Assess 2012 drive-cum-contest has begun from March 01, 2012 to last till May 31, 2012.

If you are new to assessment, you can learn the minimum about how to evaluate from Part One of the Assessment Guide. Part Two of the Guide will help you learn to employ the full functionality of the talk page template, should you choose to do so.

You can sign up on the Tag & Assess page. There are a number of awards to be given in recognition of your efforts. Come & join us to take part in this exciting new venture. You'll learn more about India in this way.
