Hello :)[edit]

Hi, i came here for your help in an ongoing dispute. an editor seems to be trying to promote HAL AMCA,DRDO AURA,INS Vishal etc in his or her recent edits. the editor (M.srihari) is giving some citation but they are either improper or outdated. i explained everything related to the changes i made to his edit yet still the person continues to revert my removal of improperly cited or non- referenced info. major changes were made in dates of launch of air carrier ins vishal without any citation etc.i just wanted a very experienced like you to take a look at those changes made.please take a look at m.srihari's contribution whenever you are free. thank you :).Nicky mathew (talk) 20:49, 6 May 2015 (UTC)

Yeah, I've noticed. I try to avoid such POV users if I can, as they usually aren't willing to listen at all. Some can be reformed, but most have (or feign) such poor English skills that communication is difficult. (Users from many countries have these problems, not just India, even the UK or US!) It's probably best to post something at WT:MILHIST, where a broad range of editors can get involved, including some admins. Thanks. - BilCat (talk) 03:16, 7 May 2015 (UTC)
thank you for your support and i really appreciate your help and support.Nicky mathew (talk) 19:00, 7 May 2015 (UTC)
No problem. - BilCat (talk) 19:01, 7 May 2015 (UTC)
Hi guys. I ran across this editor on the supercarrier page. He seems unwilling to engage on the talk page. As you no doubt are aware he has earned himself a 24 hour block for his efforts. Hopefully that will serve as a shot across his bows - we'll see. Thanks both of you for your help on that page as I had reached my 3RR limit. - Nick Thorne talk 22:51, 7 May 2015 (UTC)
now the editor is ready to talk and engaged in one now. he is fighting over obviously and well cited information. it looks more like revenge edits now.see Talk:Vikrant-class aircraft carrier heading Number of planned aircraft carriers.please take a look if possible.Nicky mathew (talk) 16:42, 11 May 2015 (UTC)
While he is discussing on talk ages now, he is still edit reverting without waiting for a consensus. I reverted him on Air-cushioned landing craft, and he discussed it at Talk:Air-cushioned landing craft#Citation, but still reverted without supplying a source that addressed his claim. - BilCat (talk) 17:18, 13 May 2015 (UTC)
In this page Talk:Vikrant-class aircraft carrier i think they manage to reach consensus and no changes were made in that page although as a result another page Arihant follow-on submarine is currently being considered for deletion (AFD). my advice is to talk to him very politely and explain everything with some citations if possible, and also thank him for his good faith edit. i know this is not how we usually handle things but if you dont want to waste days arguing with this guy please try doing so. if you don't mind can you move this discussion to archive after reading, last time this happened then this User talk:Nicky mathew heading Regarding edit disputes, i just don't want to explain my discussion with other wikipedians to this guy again and waste my time, believe me he will ask a explanation if he saw this discussion.Nicky mathew (talk) 20:56, 13 May 2015 (UTC)

City of Canberra[edit]

G'day, there are two preserved aircraft in Australia named City of Canberra; the other one's a Boeing 707. Cheers YSSYguy (talk) 11:16, 17 May 2015 (UTC)

But only one has an article. We don't generally pre-disambiguate, and I've added a hatnote to the museum article. - BilCat (talk) 11:21, 17 May 2015 (UTC)

Rollback right restored[edit]

Hi, In response to your email I've restored your access to the rollback tool. Given that you have a lengthy and postive track record on Wikipedia which has continued since the tool was removed last December, have re-reviewed Wikipedia:Rollback and provided assurances that you'll take care in using the tool (defaulting to reverts with edit summaries where there's doubt), I don't see any reason why other admins wouldn't restore it if a request had been lodged at Wikipedia:Requests for permissions/Rollback. Regards, Nick-D (talk) 09:49, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

Thank you very much. I will do my best to be responsible using rollback rights. - BilCat (talk) 09:50, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

IP editor[edit]

OK as it was continuing I've posted at ANI and reverted the last entry. WCMemail 22:03, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

Thanks. I don't use ANI enough to feel comfortable with it, so I greatly appreciate the assistance. - BilCat (talk) 22:14, 26 May 2015 (UTC)
And thanks again. - BilCat (talk) 16:34, 27 May 2015 (UTC)
Looks sorted now, no worries mate. WCMemail 17:18, 27 May 2015 (UTC)

Bangalore has been renamed to Bengaluru[edit]

Hi, Bangalore has been renamed as Bengaluru and is official. If you have doubt refer your own Bangalore wiki page. I do not understand why you have renamed it. I kindly request you to name it as per the Governments order. Also, Kindly note that BBMP is not Bruhut Bangalore Mahanagara Palike but instead it is Bruhut Bengaluru Mahanaga Palike. Kindly visit the website of BBMP and cross check it and approve my changes.

Exceptional claims require exceptional sources. Such a major change would requires sources from multiple world-wide news agencies. There is no rush; if true, there is time to make the change. We are an encyclopedia, not a news source. There is no deadline ScrpIronIV 18:59, 1 June 2015 (UTC)

Buran article spelling[edit]

Hi, so what are we going to do with the page title for the "Buran program(me)"? I do not naturally use the spelling employed by our cousins in the New World, however the bulk of said article seems to be using American English spellings. It therefore seemed wise to adapt the title to match the style of the article body. (I don't have the patience to trawl through the text of the whole article and turn everything into British spellings.) What can be done? Having the title in one style and the article in another doesn't seem to be good either. Regards Cyan22 (talk) 18:04, 3 June 2015 (UTC)

I believe that it should be maintained as is. Buran program redirects to the correct article, and Buran is well disambiguated. The way I read WP:ENGVAR, the best bet for internal consistency is to have an editor skilled in the Queen's English proofread it, and perform what copyedit is required.
