Sorry, I think you need to contact a checkuser for that. See Wikipedia:CheckUser.  Sandstein  15:46, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

Stop it

The IP you reported to AIV is quite right to be tagging those files. They are too big and should be replaced with smaller versions, per policy. You certainly shouldn't have been using rollback to edit war with them over it, so I have removed that privilege from you. HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 14:04, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

Mitchell, i reverted these edits because as i know none of these files can be used as substitute for the original work (which is the whole issue), i always upload non-free image files by decreasing their size sufficiently. And this ip is a sockpuppet, who is attacking me by reverting my edits and tagging files uploaded by me and may be this frustration made me to use this rollback right. But if you're saying that i misused this privilege than i can't question you as you're much senior to me on Wikipedia, but i always have had used my rights on better places, you can check my history of contributions. I really apologies to you if i made any mistake in your view, but this is really a big punishment by taking my rollback right (with which I've contributed to Wikipedia many times by reverting vandalism), you should at least give me a warning first. I assure you, i'll take care of my actions in future and request you to give me back rollback right. Thanks Bill william comptonTalk 14:34, 31 March 2011 (UTC)
OK, I'm willing to restore your rollback rights provided you understand that it's only for use on vandalism. Whether the IP is a sockpuppet is irrelevant to this discussion, because their edits were not vandalism. In fact, they were well within the non-free content policy. You seem to be confusing low resolution with replaceability—even if there's no free equivalent, the policy only allows for a low-resolution version. HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 11:22, 2 April 2011 (UTC)
Thanks HJ for your reply, and i again assure you, i'll use rollback right only for fighting vandalism. I interpreted the NFCC's No free equivalent policy as that we've to decrease their resolution/size sufficiently as compare to original one (if you'll go to source links of the files, you'll be able to see how much i decreased their size as compare to original ones). But as you said these files were violating the NFC's policy, I've decreased there size, you can take look at them 1, 2 and 3 (please delete there previous versions). I've revived my knowledge of NFCC and will take care of these things in future. So i again request you to restore mine "Rollback Right", thanks again.

The idea is that fair-use images shouldn't be any bigger than absolutely necessary. Around 300x300px is about as big as you would normally need, especially for an infobox image, so that last one is still a bit too big. I've restored your rollback rights, but don't make a habit of using it for anything other than blatant vandalism. HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 16:23, 2 April 2011 (UTC)
Thanks a lot HJ, and yes I've again decreased the size 1 as you recommended. Bill william comptonTalk 18:26, 2 April 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the GA review. Mani is already cited in References. Added 1 image, instead of the removed Vyasa img. Please check. --Redtigerxyz Talk 16:51, 5 April 2011 (UTC)

I was treating Mani as some Hindu scripture, but now i know what it is and have passed the article for GA, congrats. Bill william comptonTalk 18:01, 5 April 2011 (UTC)
Thanks a lot. --Redtigerxyz Talk 16:16, 6 April 2011 (UTC)

1982 Asian Games medal table

Just wanted to let you know the copy-edit's done. It's a very good article; the color-coded table and map are excellent! One small thing; do you think the article title should reflect that it contains more than just the medal table? Maybe something like "1982 Asian Games medals". Good luck with the FA and all the best,--Wi2g (talk) 18:34, 9 April 2011 (UTC)

Thanks a lot Wi2g, and for naming convention of such articles, its like informal rule to name them like that. 2008 Summer Olympics medal table and 2000 Summer Olympics medal table are few examples of many such artcles. Even if i would change its name, then it certainly would be pointed out during its FL review. But thanks for your advice and your work...Bill william comptonTalk 04:51, 10 April 2011 (UTC)

Thanks a lot, you were really helpful..Bill william comptonTalk 16:02, 11 April 2011 (UTC)
Is it okay if I wait until tomorrow to offer the review you asked for? Things are a little hectic for me right now, between Wiki activities and real-life. Giants2008 (27 and counting) 23:29, 11 April 2011 (UTC)

Hope that this helps

I hope that this helps, a bit, to offset the abuse that you have received from KnowIG. Thanks for your work here at WikiP. MarnetteD | Talk 11:49, 14 April 2011 (UTC)
