Bugger

Hey Ganeshk, can you just check out Raghuji Karande and User talk:Nilnone?

I couldn't find anything notable so I added a notability tag and Nilnone keeps removing it, and then when I left a message on his talk page, he blanked it as if nothing ever happened. --Rsrikanth05 (talk) 15:23, 12 June 2009 (UTC)

Re: INCOTM

Thanks for the Barnstar, I wish some more people had joined in the collarboration work, then it could have more successful. BTW, Kensplanet and myself have moved the Current India COTM templates to talk pages, as last time User Cirt has asked for this.--GDibyendu (talk) 14:13, 17 June 2009 (UTC)

Re : Sacchidananda Bharathi - I Sri_Sacchidananda_Bharati_I

I have added some references to north flowing Vaigai river called as Uttara Vahini and Ganga in Varanasi as well as Triveni Sangam in this article. I have discussed at length in the Discussion page of this article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Sri_Sacchidananda_Bharati_I for the rationale behind this. Let me know if this is ok.

Newsletter image

Ganeshji, Saw that you have removed the image on the newsletter. Any particular loading issue for that image ? I dont see any...Do you want another image to be replaced ? IMO an image on the newsletter makes it more attractive -- Tinu Cherian - 08:15, 17 July 2009 (UTC) {{Tb}} -- Tinu Cherian - 12:09, 17 July 2009 (UTC)

WP:INDIA Banner

Ganeshji, can you add the new workgroups to {{WP India}} template ?

Once you add them, I will create the corresponding WP 1.0 Catergoies. -- Tinu Cherian - 11:13, 22 July 2009 (UTC) {{Tb}} -- Tinu Cherian - 05:21, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

Notability Issue

Hello Ganesh, I am a regular contributor on Hindi wiki. We have a article on Indian railways as well as list of trains and similar articels. I recently found on English wiki that the list of Indian railways is facing some notability issue. Can you please let me know if it is permissible/appropriate to have such type of articles. I am afraid with such articles wikipedia would be more of a directory and less of an encyclopedia. Thanks Gunjan (talk) 04:54, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

Blanking talk pages

Is another user permitted to blank my talk pages without consent? --Rsrikanth05 (talk) 04:59, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

And another thing.. Are edits by me on MY userpage/userspace/talkpage exceptions to the 3RR rule? --Rsrikanth05 (talk) 06:48, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

Review

Hey there buddy, I am open for an editor review.. I would like it if one of you guys either reviewed it, or suggest it to someone who understands the kinds of edits that I make. --Rsrikanth05 (talk) 16:53, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

Thanks

Hi, thanks for the barnstar. I am delighted :). Didnt really expect one for my work on WP:WTCI,was surprised. Thanks again. Srikanth (speak) 16:07, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

Christ Church Anglo Indian Higher Secondary School

Dear Ganeshk, Today, I created an article about this School at Anna Salai. Please give your suggestions so as to improve it further. Thanks --Logic riches (talk) 17:27, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

Ganeshk, Thanks for the speedy reply. In fact, I was little bit confused in order to bring this article in more elaborate and presentable manner. Your guidance on this regard is very helpful. --Logic riches (talk) 12:17, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

Kanpur

Thanks for fixing that, don't know why people make these kind of moves. Also, can you move the talk page back? I believe the talk page requires a delete and move back too. cheers. -SpacemanSpiffCalvinHobbes 22:13, 25 August 2009 (UTC)

Thanks! I've fixed about five absurd moves this past week, this is the only one I couldn't do because of further edits to the redirect. cheers. -SpacemanSpiffCalvinHobbes 22:18, 25 August 2009 (UTC)
One more request, can you take care of Sitapur in the same manner too? The user has been blocked as a puppet master, so hopefully we won't have this any more. I've done about 8 move backs today, this one was edited after the move, so I can't move back. cheers. -SpacemanSpiffCalvinHobbes
Thanks again, cheers. -SpacemanSpiffCalvinHobbes 12:55, 27 August 2009 (UTC)

Help needed for Hindi Wiki

We at Hindi wiki are short of contributors with technical know how for creating bots. Do you know how to create a bot for some regular work for maintaining the quality of the wiki. I know there are several on English wiki and I can do a bot request. But generally what happens is people from other countries reply to the bot request and are reluctant to create a bot for a language which they can not even read. So if you have any experience in creating/maintaing any bot please help us. Thanks Gunjan (talk) 10:08, 26 August 2009 (UTC)

Almost done Madhya Pradesh coordinates

Hi Ganeshk! Just wanted to inform you that with some semi-automated conversion and searching, I managed to almost eliminate Category:Madhya Pradesh location articles needing coordinates, barring a handful of towns and villages. It was a painful exercise, but worth it.

The problem with automating the application of the changes is that some articles had the location templates in one format, while others in another. Therefore, I didn't want to risk it. However, for the next state I take up, I'd like to think of a more automated, but smart way.

Thanks for the help and advice! Feels good to see coordinates for almost all MP towns and villages. Now to provide my fingers some rest... :-) = Kumar Appaiah (talk) 23:21, 29 August 2009 (UTC)

Thanks Ganesh. I was looking through the Python based bots available, and thought I could do this:
  1. Get a list of coordinates for each town, which I do from with a script which uses Yahoo Maps.
  2. Fine tune the results by cross checking with Google Maps.
  3. Write the names of cities/towns/villages and their coordinates in a text file.
  4. - Run replace.py or something similar to smartly eliminate lats, latm, longs, longm and replace latd and longd with the obtained values.
Do you think this is feasible? If I need to read up something, please do let me know. Thanks in advance. Kumar Appaiah (talk) 06:59, 30 August 2009 (UTC)

Nadars and Mudaliars are fighting

Can you take a look and maybe protect List of Nadars and List of Mudaliars for a bit? A couple of autoconfirmed and a few IPs keep removing on one, adding on another, reverting and all with absurd edit summaries, specifically on the Mudaliar page. Unfortunately, I tried to clean up both pages a while back, and it stuck to my watch list! cheers. -SpacemanSpiffCalvinHobbes 03:47, 1 September 2009 (UTC)

Pages protected by Yellowmonkey, guess I wasn't the only one tracking this. cheers -SpacemanSpiffCalvinHobbes 04:20, 1 September 2009 (UTC)
