The new run of Trochidae stubs?

Hello Ganesh, a few articles near the end of the new run of Trochidae stubs had 7 line spaces between the lede and the rest of the article. This oddity started at Sericominolia vernicosa and ran for the last 6 ones, but I already fixed the final 3 by hand. I left the first 3 unaltered so you could see it fresh.

Also, a few of the first species stubs, Omphalomargarites sagamiensis, Cantharidoscops clausus, and Cantharidoscops frigidus failed to get an italic title. There may be others without italic title because I did not yet check any stubs between Cantharidus sanguineus and Pseudominolia gradata.

Thanks, Invertzoo (talk) 16:31, 24 November 2012 (UTC)

P.S. I see that Stomatella illusa also has the 7 line spaces after the lede. I don't know if this is true of others here and there, but I suppose it probably is. Invertzoo (talk) 14:16, 25 November 2012 (UTC)

P.P.S. I also see that Pseudostomatella cycloradiata has no italic title, plus strangely the species name is written with the genus name twice, on two different lines in the taxobox. Invertzoo (talk) 14:19, 25 November 2012 (UTC)

Hi Susan, Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I was away on a vacation. Thanks for checking the stubs. The line space issue was an oversight on my part. I usually let the bot run twice on each article. One for creating the stub and the second for removing the blank lines. I must have closed out the program before it ran through the full list of the species articles. I have just finished removing the blank lines from the articles. I will look into the italic issue next. Ganeshk (talk) 04:31, 29 November 2012 (UTC)
Hi again, I hope you had a nice vacation Ganesh. Thanks for checking these three issues, 1. extra spaces, 2. no italic title and 3. duplication of the genus name. Thanks again, Invertzoo (talk) 14:48, 29 November 2012 (UTC)
Seems to be a technical automatic taxobox issue. I have requested for help on it here, Template_talk:Speciesbox#Italics_2. Ganeshk (talk) 14:50, 29 November 2012 (UTC)
Hi Ganesh. I'm in the process of checking the new run of your bot on Trochidae. Cantharidoscops clausus and Cantharidoscops frigidus both state in the taxobox(title and species) twice Cantharidoscops. Furthermore, the title doesn't appear in italics (unless I put a template for this). Can you check this ? JoJan (talk) 16:29, 25 November 2012 (UTC)
Hi JoJan, I will look into the italic issue right away. Ganeshk (talk) 04:31, 29 November 2012 (UTC)
All the issues have been resolved now. Please let me know if you find any other issues. Ganeshk (talk) 22:03, 1 December 2012 (UTC)

Copyright Commercial, Non Commercial

Hi Ganeshk,

Sorry to be a bit slow on this, but I still don't quite understand the difference between these licences. As a photographer I'm used to giving away my images for non-commercial purposes, but not sure what someone is allowed to do if I leave off the NC. Does this mean, for instance, that someone can take my image from Commons and incorporate it in his book app or ebook without my permission, then sell his product for a profit? Surely this is at odds with Wikipedia's ethos of being free? I understand that he is obliged to attribute and that derivatives may be made from my image.

You can help....

Hi!
We at India Noticeboard are discussing some sort of flagging arrangement for reviewed articles and some help from editors who have knowledge of bots would be useful. Please take a look at the discussion at Wikipedia_talk:Noticeboard_for_India-related_topics#Large_amount_of_un-patrolled_bad_edits and guide us. §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {T/C} 09:18, 5 December 2012 (UTC)

Infobox settlement - data analysis

Gansehk, I found you on the bot request page. Can you have a look at Wikipedia:Bot requests#Infobox settlement - data analysis. Around 330 000 articles seem to use this template. It would be nice to analyse the data and detect inconsistency. The first field that comes to my mind is the field settlement_type. If the type contains a country specific link, one could also check whether subdivisions are filled correctly, for India, a taluka page should have a district listed. And the state should be the same for all talukas that have this district. NVanMinh (talk) 07:30, 18 December 2012 (UTC)

Many thanks for the signpost! Sounds easy, but I'm sure it's not! I'll try and get my head round it in the next few days. If I fail, I'll take you up on your kind offer! Llywelyn2000 (talk) 23:39, 9 December 2012 (UTC)

Hi Ganesh. I've downloaded AWB but I'm unable to log on as Llywelyn2000 ("You are not enabled to use this"). Either the cy-Wiki isn't configured for AWB to work or I need to Register with CheckPage (yet that page informs me that it for en-Wiki ONLY). I've also given myself Bot status, just in case, as I'm an Admin on cy-Wiki. Any ideas? Llywelyn2000 (talk) 10:38, 11 December 2012 (UTC)
Thanks. I've logged on. Llywelyn2000 (talk) 13:27, 11 December 2012 (UTC)
... and redirected a few pages. However, I've encountered a small problem: Many of my Latin names have (wrongly) two white spaces, rather than one e.g. "Lithophane ornitopus". Is there a quick way to edit to one space rather than two? Or can AWB correct automatically? Thanks again. We're getting there! Llywelyn2000 (talk) 19:38, 11 December 2012 (UTC)

Bore da! I've been trying to add the two lat/long lines to the Scottish peaks for a couple of hours. When I go to the "Options > Normal Settings" menue, I can add ONE line. I do that and it recognises the ##Z## and ##A## (coordinates) columns correctly. But can do but one line. Therefore I open Advanced Settings; then typed a new rule:

Find:

| dosbarthiad

Replace with:

| lledred = ##Z##
| hydred = ##A##
| dosbarthiad

PS The ";" are here only, not on AWB!

What effect does this have? Exactly as above! It does not input the coordinates. Yet it finds them in "Normal Settings"! In "Typed" I have "Inside Templates" ticked. I'm nearly there... Thanks. Llywelyn2000 (talk) aka: - BOT-Twm Crys (talk) 06:17, 21 December 2012 (UTC)

Your edits to Template:Automatic taxobox

As part of this set of edits, you changed:

| parent = {{Taxobox/taxon|{{{taxon|}}}|{{{1|}}} }}

to the following, if I strip out the insertion of "Acacia":

| parent = {{Taxobox/taxon|{{{taxon|{{PAGENAME}}|}}}|{{{1|}}} }}

However, these don't have the same behaviour. Since the first parameter to {{Taxobox/taxon}} now always has a value, your code is equivalent to:

| parent = {{{taxon|{{PAGENAME}} }}}

so (a) the invocation of {{Taxobox/taxon}} is redundant (b) the anonymous first parameter to {{Automatic taxobox}} can't be used, so {{Automatic taxobox|Acer}} doesn't work, whereas it used to. I don't believe that the form with an unnamed parameter is ever used (or desirable), so this change doesn't matter. BUT the insertion of {{PAGENAME}} here is wrong; {{Taxobox/taxon}} checks whether the raw page name is correct and tries {{PAGENAMEBASE}} if not, which will strip off bits of the page name like " (plant)" or " (genus)" put there to disambiguate. Can you please restore at least this part of the original logic? What's needed (ignoring Acacia) is:

| parent = {{Taxobox/taxon|{{{taxon|}}}| }}

Peter coxhead (talk) 15:27, 17 December 2012 (UTC)

See reply at my talk page. Peter coxhead (talk) 08:50, 18 December 2012 (UTC)

Omitting PAGENAME broke Template:Automatic_taxobox

The recent change to remove PAGENAME from parameter "taxon" (in Template:Automatic_taxobox) seems to have re-broken the template:

| parent = {{Taxobox/taxon|{{{taxon|<noinclude>Acacia </noinclude><includeonly>{{PAGENAME}}</includeonly>|}}}|{{{1|}}} }}<!--

was changed to this:

| parent = {{Taxobox/taxon|{{{taxon|<noinclude>Acacia</noinclude>}}}|{{{1|}}} }}<!--

That change has caused over 2,300 articles to exceed the expansion depth, and clutter the tracking category:

The resulting clutter causes the category to be almost unusable for other Wikipedians, who must wade past those 2,300 Automatic_taxobox articles to check for expansion-depth problems in other articles. The clutter is totally debilitating, as if an automobile dashboard lit up with 2,900 vehicle-failure lights, and the owner of the car must sift through all the clutter to determine which of those 2,900 warning lights indicate serious problems, and which are merely "normal errors" among those 2,900. Most people cannot work under such conditions. The choice is clear: Template:Automatic_taxobox must not ruin a tracking category, by adding massive clutter, to impact the other 9,500 Wikipedians who edit many articles each month for train routes, towns, historic sites, WikiProject banners, etc. If Template:Automatic_taxobox cannot be used within system limits, then it should not be used at all. Again, the choice is absolutely clear: this is not Wiki-Automatic_taxobox-pedia, and the integrity of the entire system must be preserved, rather than promote the use of broken templates which function beyond system limits, to the detriment of other users. We cannot have templates which clutter a vital error-tracking category with thousands of entries, and obscure critical problems lost in an ocean of errant template operations. Since this problem has persisted for years, then weeks of future analysis will be needed to find some better solutions. -Wikid77 (talk) 13:42, 19 December 2012 (UTC)

Ganeshk was just doing what I asked him to do, because the changes made in November had broken the automatic taxobox on some pages. It didn't work on a page whose name contains a disambiguating string (like " (genus)" or " (animal)") if the taxon parameter is omitted, which the old system allowed (and its documentation actually encouraged).
Clearly we all agree that the automatic taxobox system must operate within system limits. The issue is whether its intended behaviour can be implemented without exceeding the expansion depth. I have never liked the way Martin coded it to use the page name if the taxon parameter was omitted in {{Automatic taxobox}} – I would never have written it this way myself – but it's how editors have become accustomed to using the template. The correct behaviour when the page name is used by default has to include using {{PAGENAMEBASE}} to strip off any disambiguating strings in the page name otherwise it doesn't work properly. I would support a change to requiring the taxon parameter to be present and removing the default use of the page name, but this would require all pages which use the default to be changed. Perhaps a bot could do this. Alternatively there may be a way of re-coding the template which prevents resource errors. Is {{PAGENAMEBASE}} itself the problem, or the way that it is currently used? Peter coxhead (talk) 16:58, 19 December 2012 (UTC)
I've now been through and manually fixed all the pages where the page name is the taxon name plus disambiguating text in parentheses – names like Yoda (genus). It's only these pages that were affected by the reversion to the old code in Template:Automatic_taxobox which I asked you to make – because the taxon parameter was omitted, these pages had been picking up the taxon name from the page name and then relying on {{PAGENAMEBASE}} to strip off the disambiguating text, which wasn't happening. Now that I've fixed these pages by adding the taxon parameter:
  • Please revert the change to Template:Automatic_taxobox I asked you to make. The old code is no longer needed and reverting will fix many expansion depth errors.
  • I will update the documentation to say that if the page name is not exactly the same as it is in the name of the relevant "Taxonomy/TAXON" template then the taxon parameter must be used.
Thanks! Peter coxhead (talk) 09:51, 20 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Expansion-depth category cleared and usable: Thank you for reverting the change to {Automatic_taxobox} which was needed for only a few articles, and now the exceeded-depth category has been cleared of those extra 2,620 taxobox articles within a few hours, to allow seeing just a 3-page list of articles to fix. I have already fixed an erroneous talk-page and 4 articles for NRHP historic sites, which had exceeded the 41-level depth. The next taxobox depth problem is related to 410 taxonomy templates with the taxonomy/key subtemplates, which can wait a few more weeks to be reduced. -Wikid77 (talk) 20:08, 20 December 2012 (UTC)

Welsh-cy - Problem with copying Infoboxes

Hi Ganesh. Can you take a look at the last two inputs I made on my Talk page please. The problem is with what follows the pipe. Any text following a pipe was not copied into the text box. This meant that e.g. "| unitary_england = Bedford" was changed / copied by AWB to the text file as: "| unitary_england = [[Bedford (borough)". See here. Any ideas, please?

Post mortem: the problem was with the references: a couple of the URLs had a tilde! So I changed the module so that I had no references; then it worked! Now I have another small problem: I'm trying to copy all Town Infoboxes from en to cy. The module worked fine and produced a textfile "Infodata" with around 200 Welsh towns (in English). I then spent 5 hours translating these towns into Welsh (eg Monmouth = Trefynwy). However I must have deleted or added a tilde somewhere along the line! AWB now tells me that the column header needs to match the number of columns. Can I force it to work on the correct towns only, and leave out the town I messed up? Or can CSV Loader not point out which field has actually been messed up so that I can Skip it? Sorry bothering you again with such trivial matters. Diolch.

      • A tiny word of caution (but don't miss the thanks above): Your method worked like a charm, but the output had a few residual undesirable results. if you ever recommend this to anyone else, tell them to check for things like those below:
  • Category:Redirects from alternative names
  • Category:Redirects from alternative names
  • Category:Redirects from initialisms
  • Category:Redirects from long names
  • Template:R from incorrect name

File permission problem with File:Singhsons.png

Thanks for uploading File:Singhsons.png. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file agreed to license it under the given license.

If you created this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en@wikimedia.org, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:File copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. You may wish to read the Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. —Bkell (talk) 15:07, 6 March 2013 (UTC)

    • More work on implementing the simple inclusion syntax that will be 1 way to access Wikidata data on Wikipedia
    • More work on Lua (the second way to access Wikidata data on Wikipedia)
    • Added parser page property to hold entity id in client. This fixes:
      • bugzilla:45037 - don’t show edit link if noexternallanglinks has suppressed all Wikidata links
      • bugzilla:44536 - have the edit link go directly to the Q### pages, instead of Special:ItemByTitle which shall make the link be more reliable and work for all namespaces

    • Selenium tests for multiline references
    • Selenium tests for add-sitelinks-from-client
    • Selenium tests for Entity-Selector-as-Searchbox
    • Selenium tests for language-table
    • Implemented in-process caching for entities
    • Lua support to access the repo data and implement getEntity (so you can use stuff like entity = mw.wikibase.getEntity("Q1459") in Lua modules)
    • rebuildTermSearchKey is now ready for production (this still needs to be run but once done it will make search case-insensitive)
    • Improved error reports from the API
    • Ground work for better edit summaries from the API
    • Added a table of content to item pages
    • Added debug functionality to be able to investigate why it takes longer than it should for Wikidata changes to show up on recent changes and watchlists on Wikipedia
    • Finished implementation of References-UI
    • Implemented GUID generator in JavaScript

Wikidata weekly summary #50

Wikidata-logo-en.svg
Here's your quick overview of what has been happening around Wikidata over the last week.
  • Development
    • Rolled out new code on wikidata.org. The new stuff you probably care about is:
      • Improved references. They can now have multiple lines. This should make references much more useful. You can now have one reference with for example values for each of the properties "book", "author", "page" to describe one source.
      • Fixed the prev/next links in diff view (bugzilla:45821)
      • d:Special:EntitiesWithoutLabel now lets you filter by language and entity type
    • Widget to add language links on the Wikipedias directly: added setting to enable/disable it per wiki and made it available for logged-in users only
    • Widget to add language links on the Wikipedias directly: improved layout / size
    • Made it so that the “edit links” link on Wikipedia is also shown when the corresponding item only has a link to this one language and no other languages
    • Submitted improved Apache config patch to make wikidata.org always redirect to www.wikidata.org, which is awaiting code review and deployment.
    • Improved the script that is responsible for taking Wikidata changes to the Wikipedias
    • Added a few ways to better debug the script responsible for taking Wikidata changes to the Wikipedias. This should help with investigating why some changes take way to long to show up on the Wikipedias.
    • Started work on automatically adding edited items to the user’s watchlist (according to preferences)
    • Finished script for rebuilding search keys, so we can finally get case insensitive matches in a lot of places
    • Support for multi-line references in diff view
    • Selenium tests for inclusion syntax
    • Improved parser function (that will be used to access Wikidata data on the Wikipedias) to accept property ID or label
    • Increased isolation of data model component to increase clarity and visibility of bad dependencies
    • Worked on schema access in the SQLStore (of the query component)
  • Discussions/Press
  • Events
    • 3rd Media Web Symposium 2013
    • Wikidata trifft Archäologie
    • SMWCon Spring NYC
  • Other Noteworthy Stuff
  • Did you know?
    • When you edit a statement there is a little wheel in front of the text field. This lets you choose between “custom value”, “unknown value” and “no value”. “No value” means that we know that the given property has no value, e.g. Elizabeth I of England had no spouse. “Unknown value” means that the property has a value, but it is unknown which one -- e.g. Pope Linus most certainly had a year of birth, but it is unknown to us.

Wikidata weekly summary #51

Wikidata-logo-en.svg
Here's your quick overview of what has been happening around Wikidata over the last week.
  • Development
    • The first 11 Wikipedias can now include data from Wikidata in their articles (If you want to see it in action see the infobox at it:Torino)
    • Worked on automatic summaries for statements
    • Worked on making properties accessible from the client using their label so you can use {{#property:executive director}} instead of {{#property:p169}} for example
    • Made qualifiers ready for the next deployment (Please test. See details further down.)
    • Selenium tests for qualifiers
    • Fixed some issues related to QUnit testing
    • Worked on improved handling and code design of multiple snak lists in the UI (qualifiers, references)
  • Discussions/Press
  • Events
    • Newline 2013
  • Other Noteworthy Stuff
    • We’re currently carefully monitoring performance after the deployment of phase 2 on the first 11 Wikipedias. There seem to be a few small issues. As soon as they are resolved we'll deploy on English Wikipedia. All other Wikipedias are planned to follow very soon after that.
    • Bye and a big thank you to Anja, Silke, Jens and John who are leaving the development team at the end of the month and will work on other cool things. You’ll be missed!
    • Ever had any doubt about the possibilities of Wikidata? Talk to Wiri!
    • We worked on reducing the time it takes for Wikidata edits to show up in the Wikipedias and made some progress. Daniel posted an analysis
    • We started running a script on the database in order to make search on Wikidata case-insensitive. This should be finished in a few days and then search should be more useful.
    • In addition to the above we have rolled out a new search box that suggests items. This should also make finding things on Wikidata a lot easier for you.
    • We’re making some progress with Internet Explorer 8 support but there are a lot of issues with it (some outside our control). It’s unclear at the moment how much we can improve it still without spending an unjustified amount of time on it. You can follow the progress at bugzilla:44228
    • Edits are now auto-confirmed for users with more than 50 edits and account age 4 days: bugzilla:46461
    • Do you need old-style interwiki links for a sister project for example? This is for you
    • The Wikimedia Foundation applied as a mentoring organisation for Google Summer of Code again. We have proposed some Wikidata projects for students to take up if the Foundation is accepted again. At least 2 other organisations that applied also propose Wikidata ideas. More details on that once we know which organisations are accepted.
    • Denny hacked together a tree of life based on data from Wikidata
    • Wikidata was added to wikipulse
    • A template to retrieve data from Wikidata if no local value is set
  • Did you know?
  • Open Tasks for You
    • See note at the end of this weekly summary
    • Help test qualifiers (m:Wikidata/Notes/Data model primer#Qualifiers - see also example statements there) on the test wiki so we can roll it out with the next release
    • Did you file a bug report for Wikidata or did someone else do it for you? Please take a minute to check if it is still valid. (Thanks for filing it btw!)
    • Add some missing descriptions to those items with the same label?
    • Hack on one of these

Could I have 2 mins of your time? As I’ll be working on some other projects for Wikimedia Germany as well from now on the time I can spend on Wikidata will be reduced. This means I’ll have to figure out what is useful to spend time on. If you’re reading this could you let me know for example on this discussion page? Also if you have ideas how to improve the weekly summaries please post them. --Lydia Pintscher (WMDE) (talk)

    • Deployment of phase 2 on English Wikipedia is currently planned for April 8. The remaining Wikipedias are scheduled for April 10. As usual this might change if we run into problems along the way.
    • There is now a page showing the current lag for changes propagating to the Wikipedias so they can show up in watchlists and recent changes for example. This should ideally be in the range of a few minutes. Right now it is higher because of some abnormally high bot activity but decreasing. Should be down to a few minutes soon.
    • There’s now a badge you can add to Wikipedia articles to indicate there is data about it on Wikidata
    • We hit Q10000000
    • A Wikidata item in the wild ;-)

    • Worked on reducing the dispatch lag (the time it takes for changes on Wikidata to be sent to the Wikipedias for display in watchlist, recent changes and to purge affected pages)
    • Worked on using Redis for job queue to improve the lag situation even further

    • Deployment of phase 2 on the remaining Wikipedias was delayed because of a high lag of changes being propagated to the Wikipedias. The lag has been reduced considerably now and is going down even more. The new date for deployment will not be next week because there are other large changes on Wikimedia infrastructure scheduled that we do not want to interfere with. It will hopefully happen very soon after that though.
    • Next code update on wikidata.org is planned for Wednesday. This should include qualifiers and bugfixes.
    • There will probably be a short outage/read-only for wikidata.org on Tuesday (database is being switched to MariaDB)
    • If you're a student and interested in coding on Wikidata consider applying for Google Summer of Code.
    • There is a new user right: property creators
    • There is now a page to request deletion of a property
    • We now have Bureaucrats
    • Reasonator was improved and extended (1 2)
  • Open Tasks for You

Two columns / Find and Replace on AWB

Hi Ganesh. I'm looking at creating a very simple spellchecker in Welsh with more than just a handful of words. As a starter I have set up [Defnyddiwr:Llywelyn2000/Anthemau cenedlaethol this page] to try out, and would like to use the Find / Replace to translate from English to Welsh ie {{Flag|Argentina}} to {{Flag|Yr Ariannin}}. I have a CSV file with two fields: the English country names and the Welsh words. Is there a way of getting AWB to see and use this CSV file? Many thanks.

Selecting a part of an article to input text

Hi Ganeshk. I would like to add a few sentences using variable data to produce that sentence. That has been done successfully but I can only apend or prepend this info into the article. Can I place the text after the first paragraph or let's say at the end of the existing article text? Or is this a question for AWB? Many thanks. Llywelyn2000 (talk) 13:26, 28 April 2013 (UTC)

Wouldn't it be nice if we could select whether to place the additional text after paragraph 1, 2, 3 etc? That would make life easier and give me a few minutes extra to plant a few seeds in our veg garden! Llywelyn2000 (talk) 20:06, 3 May 2013 (UTC)
Thanks. For me to be able to: "the last few words" + "new sentence", I would need "last few words" which are common in all articles. This isn't always the case, as you know eg all villages are in Wales are written differently. It would be nice to tell AWB to insert a new paragraph about the 2011 census after paragraph 2. By the way, I've added around 7,000 new articles (villages of England) on the Welsh Wicipedia, over the weekend - all thanks to you! Archive? Yes! But there's no time for me to blow my nose, let alone archiving! I'll do it one day! Llywelyn2000 (talk) 15:31, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

Major taxonomic overhaul

Hi Ganesh. I just found out today that a couple of months ago the large superfamily Rissooidea has been split into the superfamily Rissooidea s.s. and the new superfamily Truncatelloidea, containing most of the families previously in Rissooidea.

WoRMS: Truncatelloidea.

This involves creating the article about the new superfamily and a lot of changing on the level of families, genera and species with changing in the taxobox (or speciesbox) and in the lead of "Rissooidea" into "Truncatelloidea". I suppose the Ganeshbot is best suited for this, because manually this would be a tedious work and involve a lot of my precious time. At the same time, all the missing articles could also be created.

I also draw your attention to my previous post on your talk page about the Seguenzioidea.

I hope you can find the time to do all this. Thanks. JoJan (talk) 14:37, 4 June 2013 (UTC)

I've just finishing checking the new family Rissoinidae (upgraded from subfamily Rissoininae). The Ganeshbot can now add all the missing articles. Can you also change the Rissoidae-stub template into Rissoinidae-stub for all the articles ? Thanks. JoJan (talk) 15:42, 11 June 2013 (UTC)

About the album

Thank you so much. Kind of you. :) Spread the music so that the album reaches more people. You know how the independent music scene is in South India. Only when we make people listen, they'll know :) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ajesh.ashok (talkcontribs) 07:11, 15 June 2013 (UTC)
