Hey! Good to see you around. Finding some old familiar usernames has almost started motivating me to get back into the wiki-ring. Hope all's well! Juliancolton (talk) 01:56, 12 March 2013 (UTC)
Hi Julian, nice to hear from you! Hope you do get more active again, I'm sure the hurricane articles are missing you. Chamal TC 02:15, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

Welcome back![edit]

Hi there, I thought you were gone for good but it is great to see you back. I hope you will mostly be working on Sri Lanka related articles as many editors back from our day has left, however there are a few new ones coming through. WikiProject Sri Lanka has been pretty quiet but I have been maintaining it solely. Currently I am in the process of assessing each article so that things can be much more organised here. There are still disputes however greatly less so during the last 6 months or so, and people editing on an emotional basis has decreased dramatically. I thought I might give you an update from when you left, hope to see you editing again. :) --Blackknight12 (talk) 06:13, 20 February 2013 (UTC)

Hi Blackknight12, good to hear from you again :) I am planning to work on a couple of WikiProject Sri Lanka articles soon, although I don't think I will be as active as I was before since I have very little free time. Let me know if I can help with anything, and keep up the good work! Chamal TC 06:20, 20 February 2013 (UTC)

Welcome back. You might want to look at this.--obi2canibetalk contr 13:32, 20 February 2013 (UTC)

Thanks mate... wasn't expecting to come across a problem as soon as I got back. I don't know the background so I think I shouldn't get involved just now, but I will keep an eye on it. Chamal TC 13:41, 20 February 2013 (UTC)

Stone circles of Junapani[edit]

It strikes a chord. I thought we were working on some articles a few years back related to parks? Any way, I don't know what is not clear to the second reviewer about the hook in the above article which you had cleared.--Nvvchar. 07:52, 22 February 2013 (UTC)

Yes, we certainly did. Nice to hear from you again. I've suggested an alternative hook there, could you please check if it's suitable? Chamal TC 08:13, 22 February 2013 (UTC)

Thank you. It should sort out the issue now. Please let me know if want to write some articles related to Sri Lanka.--Nvvchar. 12:14, 22 February 2013 (UTC)

Hopefully. I don't have a lot of time to research so I'm sticking to the easy stuff for now :) I'll definitely ask when I could do with a bit of help. Chamal TC 13:13, 22 February 2013 (UTC)

Ouya[edit]

Hello,

you accidentally deleted my constructive edit on Ouya. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 128.138.65.215 (talkcontribs)

You changed "video game console" to "video game scam". Are you sure that was productive? The article adequately mentions the unproven speculation and accusations about it being a scam, but calling it a scam on the first sentence of the article as fact is rather against wikipedia's neutral point of view policy and clear misinformation. Chamal TC 14:40, 28 February 2013 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Featured list candidates/List of international cricket centuries by Garfield Sobers/archive1[edit]

Hi, this list is at WP:FLC. Would you mind providing comments? Vensatry (Ping me) 17:08, 2 March 2013 (UTC)

Sure. I've left a comment there on a minor issue, but looks good overall. Chamal TC 04:46, 3 March 2013 (UTC)

Opinion[edit]

Hi, I need your opinion here. Zia Khan 05:17, 6 March 2013 (UTC)

I'd agree that the article is ineligible. DYK rules state that the expansion is calculated from the previous existing prose no matter how bad it is (unless it's a copyvio), which means we'll have to calculate from before you removed the unnecessary/irrelevant text, so it's not a 5x expansion. It's unfortunate, but that's how it works. Chamal TC 04:08, 7 March 2013 (UTC)

Just to say thanks, I hit save and everything went haywire, I was OMG it's including the image but as I have low-broadband I couldn't wrestle control back from my browser and I was aware that this would fuck up the help page for all trying to access it. Thanks, it took me more than 10 minutes to get back to a WP page that would load (after clearing the cache, doing a Ccleaner, logging out and so on). Exactly the point I was trying to make to the OP though, hi-res images fuck you up. cheers! CaptainScreebo Parley! 13:14, 23 March 2013 (UTC)

for cleaning up after me at List of statues of Queen Victoria.

‎Coppercholride[edit]

Hello Chamal, congrats on the renewal of your admin rights again.

I need some help, User:Coppercholride has been reverting and edit warring with constructive edits that I have made. This trend has also been going on with other users, yet he seems adamant that he is right. I suspect there is no use in me trying to talk and discuss with him as he thinks I am on some kind of mission, and that it took a few days to just convince him to find some sources to back up what he was claiming (which he only did after User:Qwyrxian stepped in) in a previous discussion at Talk:Tamil Muslim#Ethnic origins of Sri Lankan Moors. He has reverted my constructive edits in the following three articles:

And has also engaged in the edit warring of the following articles with other editors:

The user is stirring up the neutrality and validity of these sensitive articles. You probably have the clearest idea of how sensitive these articles are, what is to be done next in order to stop this.--Blackknight12 (talk) 08:43, 3 April 2013 (UTC)

Hi Blacknight12, unfortunately I'm a bit busy these couple of weeks in RL, so I don't think I'll be able to look into this thoroughly. I can't say anything about the content dispute; as Qwyrxian says this is a complicated issue and I don't have the time right now to go over all the articles and editors involved. However, the recent edit warring is clearly a problem, and I've left a note on Coppercholride's talk page. Perhaps it would be a good idea to go for dispute resolution if it looks like a suitable consensus can't be reached. It looks like Pharaoh of the Wizards has taken a look at the issue recently; maybe he could offer some better help than me. Chamal TC 18:06, 3 April 2013 (UTC)

Nice to see you again on Wikipedia, and I remember you as an admin and am one of those guys who voted for you.

Some articles for me to read and get started with editing? thanks alot! Sorry if I disturbed... Cheers!!! Pasanbhathiya2 (talk) 13:22, 27 May 2013 (UTC)

Hello Chamal N! Thank you for being a host at the Teahouse. However, we haven't heard from you lately, so our bot has moved your Host profile from the host landing page to the host breakroom. No worries; you can always just Check in and our bot will move your profile back. Editing any Teahouse-related page will do the same thing for you. If you would prefer not to receive reminders like this, you can unsubscribe here. Thanks for your help at the Teahouse! HostBot (talk) 03:50, 2 June 2013 (UTC)

TemplateData is here[edit]

Hey Chamal N

I'm sending you this because you've made quite a few edits to the template namespace in the past couple of months. If I've got this wrong, or if I haven't but you're not interested in my request, don't worry; this is the only notice I'm sending out on the subject :).

So, as you know (or should know - we sent out a centralnotice and several watchlist notices) we're planning to deploy the VisualEditor on Monday, 1 July, as the default editor. For those of us who prefer markup editing, fear not; we'll still be able to use the markup editor, which isn't going anywhere.

What's important here, though, is that the VisualEditor features an interactive template inspector; you click an icon on a template and it shows you the parameters, the contents of those fields, and human-readable parameter names, along with descriptions of what each parameter does. Personally, I find this pretty awesome, and from Monday it's going to be heavily used, since, as said, the VisualEditor will become the default.

The thing that generates the human-readable names and descriptions is a small JSON data structure, loaded through an extension called TemplateData. I'm reaching out to you in the hopes that you'd be willing and able to put some time into adding TemplateData to high-profile templates. It's pretty easy to understand (heck, if I can write it, anyone can) and you can find a guide here, along with a list of prominent templates, although I suspect we can all hazard a guess as to high-profile templates that would benefit from this. Hopefully you're willing to give it a try; the more TemplateData sections get added, the better the interface can be. If you run into any problems, drop a note on the Feedback page.

We Can Do It!.jpg
  • Progress report: Thus far we have reduced the number of May/June 2012 articles to just 124 articles, so we're on the right track. Unfortunately, for the first time in GOCE history, the number of articles in the backlog has actually gone up during this drive. While all participants are currently doing a fine job, we just don't have as many of them as we have had in the past. We have over 500 editors on our mailing list, but only 18 editors who have done a copy edit for the drive. If you're receiving this newsletter, it's because you have an interest in copy editing. Join the drive! Even if you only copy edit one article, it helps. Imagine how much progress we could make if everyone chipped in just one article.

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:Premadasa.gif. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

The December blitz ran from December 8–14. The theme for this blitz was articles tied in some way to religion. Seven editors knocked out 20 articles over the course of the week. Our next blitz will be in February, with a theme to be determined. Feel free to make theme suggestions at the Guild talk page!

The January 2014 Backlog elimination drive is a month-long effort to reduce the size of the copy edit backlog. The drive begins on January 1 at 00:00 (UTC) and ends on January 31 at 23:59 (UTC). Our goals are to copy edit all articles tagged in October and November 2012 and complete all requests placed before the end of 2013. Barnstars will be awarded to anyone who copy edits at least one article, and special awards will be given to the top five in the following categories: "Number of articles", "Number of words", "Number of articles of over 5,000 words", "Number of articles tagged in October and November 2012", and "Longest article". We hope to see you there!
