Hello, this is HinduPundit's talk page.
Hi, just wanting to know why you made the move from Shikharband Mandir to Shikharbaddha Mandir without mentioning it on the talk page? You cite this spelling being used in the article for the change - however its you who changed the spelling in the article as well! Around The Globeसत्यमेव जयते 06:04, 31 May 2011 (UTC)
- Thank you, Around the Globe, for the interest. Actually, the reason for making the move without discussing it on the talk page first is quite simple – the article has been a stub for almost 2 years, with no edits and minimal page views, so I thought no one would really be interested in it, which is why I didn't put it on the talk page first. But happy to see that someone else cares. The Shikharband vs Shikharbaddha issue is actually something that had originally caught my interest, etymologically. I am not sure of your own etymological background, so I won’t get into the linguistic details of the validity of the instrumental tatpurusha samas rather than the genitive variety in this case, but suffice it to say that shikharbaddha is the correct usage, and if you have any etymological arguments against that, I would be very interested to hear them. But, for the present Wikipedia discussion, rather than the etymological route, perhaps I would point to a number of scholars who have used the “Shikharbaddha” terminology, rather than the “shikharbandh” variant in peer-reviewed journals and books in the English language. The references I have listed at the bottom of the article have mentioned some of these scholars (I could also add Rudert and Nassar, just to mention two others who have used shikharbaddha). Moreover, none of the scholars have used the “Shikharbandh” term in any peer-reviewed journal or book. I thought this point would be clear from my ample citations. So, basically, either “shikharbandh” is an error, or a local or regional colloquialism, like “ain’t” for “isn’t”, but proper term is shikharbaddha, and that is what should be used.

Personal Attacks and Disruptive Editing
I saw you as one of the editors being attacked on the BAPS Talk page. Would you kindly comment on User:22.214.171.124's talk page (here User_talk:126.96.36.199) and User:188.8.131.52's talk page (here User_talk:184.108.40.206) if you feel that this user has been engaging in any form of personal attacks to you?
Additionally, in light of the dialogue that is taking place on the BAPS talk page, I observed lack of participation by these editors. They fail to engage and address the concerns raised by other editors in the talk page discussions and instead choose to ignore these discussions and engage in blind reverts with no edit summaries - violating Wikipedia policies despite being told by multiple editors. The user(s) themselves agree to edit warring. Such behavior, has made it difficult to work with them in a collaborative spirit. If you feel strong about such undue behavior, I encourage you to voice your opinions on his/her talk page. Your support can help reduce further attacks and help prevent such editing. Thanks!!

Since you have so much time to monitor articles, would you mind improving the following articles? It was requested by a user earlier. Could you assit in updating the Gopalanand Swami article. I suggest we have three sections on how each of three main sect's views him with an expanded biography. You seem educated with BAPS so I look forward to your updates. I was curious, is there any textual basis in core writing that Gopalanand was a mukta? Additionally, to my amazement, a Chino Hills BAPS Mandir was recently built and there is no wiki page to establish that.
Do you know anything about Priyadarshan "The bluebook" swami leaving baps controversially. He made copies of documents and stoles some items and then left to another sect. I have some information on this and am going to forward it to Times of India and the Indian Express but needed some more details. I know baps members where told to keep this quiet so your response will let me know your intentions. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 15:39, 5 August 2013 (UTC)
