Hiranyagarbha[edit]

While editing I have come across Hiranyagarbha (source of the universe) and a ritual called Hiranyagarbham. I'm surmising that the latter is in honour of the deity. Is that correct? Would it be normal in Indian languages for the addition of an "m" to turn something into a ritual? Cheers,  Philg88 talk 09:41, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

Your DYK[edit]

Just so you know: your DYK for Early Nationalists will be on the front page about 7 hours from now - shortly after noon New Delhi time - and will be there for 8 hours. Information is here: Template:Did you know/Queue. --MelanieN (talk) 23:14, 24 April 2014 (UTC)

Thank you MelanieN for your help and support. Let's see how many views we get. Jim Carter (talk) 03:39, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

AWB[edit]

Hi Jim,

Part of the process to prove that you can use AWB is to demonstrate that you can follow instructions. The instructions start at the top of the page you showed me, and they then link to Wikipedia talk:AutoWikiBrowser/CheckPage. So take a look there and follow the instructions there. You do seem to have enough mainspace edits. Graeme Bartlett (talk) 05:49, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

Graeme I have requested for AWB at WP:AWB/CP please review my request. Thank you. Jim Carter (talk) 06:45, 25 April 2014 (UTC)
Ah.. I see someone has already added my name :) Jim Carter (talk) 07:44, 26 April 2014 (UTC)

DYK for Early Nationalists[edit]

PanydThe muffin is not subtle 06:37, 25 April 2014 (UTC)
I've been digging around and, yep, that article has really piqued my interest. I'm grateful for you creating it. There is much to be done, as you are aware, but I find it hard to believe just how ignorant I was of something that falls slap-bang in the middle of a period in which I have a particular interest. You've raised an entirely valid distinction between "Early Nationalists" as a collective noun and "early nationalists" as a generalised descriptive term, which is how I'd mostly read it previously. My thanks to you and I hope that we can collaborate along the journey. - Sitush (talk) 00:49, 26 April 2014 (UTC)
Thank you Sitush for the kind words. Since you told about "collaborate" so I thought you might help me expand this. Don't worry about references, I have a huge collection of books and a public library nearby which will help us. Again thank you for the message. Jim Carter (talk) 08:17, 26 April 2014 (UTC)

Indian National Congress campaign for Indian general election, 2014‎[edit]

Hi Jim you tagged the above article as B class. Can you suggest me how it can be made fit for GA. I know neutrality is important and it needs to be stable. Any suggestions?--Skr15081997 (talk) 15:30, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

Thank you @Skr15081997: for the message. I took a quick look at your article. I have fixed some minor problems and marked some places which need citations. I have noticed that you have mentioned frequent quotations in the article, remember every quotations must be followed by a source and it is preferable to use {{quotation}}. On the other hand some copyediting is also required. I think you must wait untill 16th May since some places like West Bengal are still having campaigns and then together we will discuss how to make more improvements. You can nominate an article for GA if it is complete and I think it need some more expansion too. BTW I would like to ping Sitush, he have some good knowledge in this topic. Thank you. Jim Carter (talk) 17:45, 28 April 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the suggestions Jim, I understand that GA articles need to be stable. As the campaigning is still going on in many places it needs time for the GA assessment. During this period I will expand the article and include the necessary details and citations also.--Skr15081997 (talk) 02:40, 29 April 2014 (UTC)
Welcome :) I would also like to suggest you to see this. Thank you. Jim Carter (talk) 06:04, 29 April 2014 (UTC)

Edit summary[edit]

What's with the edit summary "added orphan tag; using AWB" when you added this section on Mr. Stradivarius' talk page? --AmaryllisGardener talk 12:56, 1 May 2014 (UTC)

Oops sorry AmaryllisGardener, I haven't noticed. Actually I was using WP:AWB and the default edit summary was set as added orphan tag; using AWB; And when adding the section I forgot to change it, hence its showing that. Sorry again. Jim Carter (talk) 13:17, 1 May 2014 (UTC)
That's okay, I figured it was something like that. --AmaryllisGardener talk 13:20, 1 May 2014 (UTC)
I will take more care while using AWB. Thank you. :) Jim Carter (talk) 13:25, 1 May 2014 (UTC)
Please read the WP:AWB rules of use, esp. #4. Thanks. Lugnuts Dick Laurent is dead 11:01, 2 May 2014 (UTC)
Ah...sorry Lugnuts, thank you for bring it to my attention. Jim Carter (talk) 11:23, 2 May 2014 (UTC)
Dear Jim, three times today and yesterday, you have edited an article I created and the edit summary did not match the edit [16] [17] [18]. Also two changes of these edits did not change anything in the article besides spacebars and capital letters, which is an unnecessary edit. I do not know English guidelines, but on the Dutch Wikipedia these edits are not allowed when using a bot or AWB. Thanks for your attention. Sincerely, Taketa (talk) 11:13, 4 May 2014 (UTC)
Hi Taketa thank you for the message, I guess my AWB is having a problem i.e. It automatically saving minor changes, I will not use it any more. Thank you for bringing it to my notice. Jim Carter (talk) 11:19, 4 May 2014 (UTC)
Looks like you are still using AWB - and it is still adding inappropriate edit summaries.[19] I suspect this tool is causing you more problems than it is solving. --MelanieN (talk) 15:15, 7 May 2014 (UTC)
O.. I again forgot to change the edit summary. Damn! Jim Carter (talk) 15:45, 7 May 2014 (UTC)

Parui[edit]

In the Anubrata Mandal article, I have been puzzled about the shooting "in Parui", wondering why that is a redlink. Newspapers do refer to this as "the Parui case," but in a search I can't find any such place as Parui. I think we do need "Parui" in the article, since sources are calling it "the Parui case", but we also need some clarification of "Parui". One newspaper account says the killing occured "in Badnabagram village under Parui police station area in Birbhum's Kasba". Badnagabram is also a redlink. Would it be correct to say something like this: "independent candidate Sagar Ghosh was shot and killed at his home in the Parui district of Kasba, Kolkata." ? Give it some thought. --MelanieN (talk) 15:08, 2 May 2014 (UTC)

Hi Melanie, am confused, firstly Kasba, KolkataKasba, Birbhum. Secondly Parui is also a very very very small village, so small that it is not notable here in Wikipedia. Only Indian governments revenue department has paper reports of that village. Thirdly, Parui is not a district. Actually Parui is a village which has its tehsil under Badnagabram village and Badnagabram is under Birbhum district. World wide web has 0 informations about Parui or Badnagabram village. But we can say something like this "independent candidate Sagar Ghosh was shot and killed at his home in Parui, Birbhum." It's confusing, Do you have any more suggestion. Jim Carter (talk) 05:21, 3 May 2014 (UTC)
Ok, thanks for clarifying. That's why I didn't just add something - I don't know the area. Your suggestion would work fine, go ahead and do it or something similar. Of course, you don't need to wikilink Birbhum since it is already wikilinked in the artice. I think the location should be given in the first sentence where you say the person was murdered - rather than in the later sentence where opponents accused Mandal. --MelanieN (talk) 14:31, 3 May 2014 (UTC)
Just waiting for your reply; Can you make this change on my behalf? Jim Carter (talk) 14:44, 3 May 2014 (UTC)
I'm off for today. My 3G connection lost :\ Jim Carter (talk) 15:19, 3 May 2014 (UTC)

Thank you. Jim Carter (talk) 07:24, 4 May 2014 (UTC)

DYK credit[edit]

Hi, Jim! I see that you added me as co-creator at Template:Did you know nominations/Anubrata Mandal. I understand why you did this; you like to spread around the credit and acknowledge other people's help. But I actually wish you wouldn't do that. IMO the DYK credit should go to the person who created the article, period. Additional people should be listed only if they really were co-creators, not if they simply improved the article after it was created; I think that just confuses things. And in this case, when you added me as a creator, it changed the nature of the nomination, from a third-party nomination to a "self nom". Self nomination means it was nominated for DYK by the author of the article. A self nom has additional requirements, including the need to do a QPQ (quid pro quo) review of another nomination. It so happened that I DID do a review of another nomination, although as a third-party nominator I didn't have to, so it worked out OK in this case. But it could have delayed the nomination, as well as making it look like we were trying to get away with something.

Don't remove my name from the current DYK; the addition of my name has already been responded to (that is, somebody changed the labeling to "self nom") so it is set in stone. But in the future, please don't add me as a co-creator unless I really was a full collaborator in developing and creating the article. OK?

Thanks for the kind gesture! I know you only do this out of the generosity of your heart. But it isn't necessary and it can cause problems. --MelanieN (talk) 21:36, 3 May 2014 (UTC)


Ok Melanie, I actually thought you will be happy to see that your help to improve the article is not in vain. Anyways, thanks for your help. Jim Carter (talk) 07:38, 4 May 2014 (UTC)
I know you do this out of generosity and gratitude - because you are such a nice person. And I do know that "improving an article" is never in vain if it makes the encyclopedia better. But DYK credit, and credit for creating an article - that belongs to the person who created it. In this case, that's you! --MelanieN (talk) 13:56, 4 May 2014 (UTC)
It is you kindness that you don't want anything for your ingenious effort to make the encyclopedia better. Honestly am your disciple O:-) Jim Carter (talk) 05:20, 5 May 2014 (UTC)

Anubrata Mandal image[edit]

Hi Jim Cartar, I did some fiddling with the above image at commons. You can see him better now.  Philg88 talk 15:44, 4 May 2014 (UTC)

Thank you Philg88, Please instruct me how to use Adobe photoshop. The software is on my PC for more than 2 years but still now I don't know how to use it :\ 05:28, 5 May 2014 (UTC)
You're welcome. Whilst I have no doubt that you would make an excellent student, time spent on me teaching you the complexities of Photoshop is better spent improving Wikipedia. I'm sure that there are hundreds of introductory tutorials online that will give you grounding in the basics. Cheers,  Philg88 talk 10:12, 5 May 2014 (UTC)
Hmm. Ok. BTW have you noticed that my above reply has only timestamp but no signature, Although I have used four waves (~~~~) but it is only showing the timestamp. Do you know why it's happening? Jim Carter (talk) 10:31, 5 May 2014 (UTC)
No idea, and they're not waves, they're "tildes". Maybe you hit a wrong key and created an escape sequence the MediaWiki software didn't like. While we're on the topic of presentation, please consider changing the font on this page. It's very hard to read, particular with the background colour.  Philg88 talk 10:39, 5 May 2014 (UTC)
@Philg88: Can you read it now? Jim Carter (talk) 11:04, 5 May 2014 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── 100% better, but maybe change the superscripted "talk" in your sig to dark blue. Cheers,  Philg88 talk 12:55, 5 May 2014 (UTC)

Ok Philg88. Thank you for your kind advice. BTW I need to talk with you about an urgent topic, do you have some time now? 13:16, 5 May 2014 (UTC)
Sure, what's on your mind?  Philg88 talk 13:34, 5 May 2014 (UTC)
Would you be interested in running for adminship? I've just had a quick look through your edits, and I think you would be an excellent candidate for RfA. It should help you with G13 work as well. Let me know if you're interested, and if so I'll write you up a nomination. (Again only timestamp but no signature) 13:52, 5 May 2014 (UTC)
Hey Jim Cartar, whilst I appreciate the undoubted kind intentions behind your suggestion, the answer is "thanks but no thanks". In my view, an RfA nomination involves a bit more than a "quick look" through an editor's contributions, and should ideally be proposed by one or more existing admins. Best,  Philg88 talk 17:05, 5 May 2014 (UTC)
@Philg88:, when you are not sure about your contributions then you might ask Mr. Stradivarius to review your contributions, since he is an existing admin and an expert contribution reviewer of RfA candidates. On the other hand good standing editors like Zanhe, Madalibi etc will also second your nomination. I know you will be a good candidate for RfA, please think about it. Jim Carter (talk) 06:01, 6 May 2014 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Thanks Jim, it's not that I am unsure about my contributions, its just that if I do decide to go for an RfA then I want to go about it the right way. Once again, thank you for your kind suggestion.  Philg88 talk 06:33, 6 May 2014 (UTC)

As you wish. But in my opinion you can be a good admin :) Jim Carter (talk) 08:58, 6 May 2014 (UTC)

Help with Vivek lall's page[edit]

Hi, my article was accepted, but the wikipedia crawlers haven't picked it up yet, so Google search doesn't show the page. Also, a comment says it is an orphan page, hence I linked it to another page, but still the message flashes.

Link-https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vivek_Lall — Preceding unsigned comment added by Cactusfigure (talkcontribs) 04:35, 7 May 2014 (UTC)

Hello @Cactusfigure:, thank you for the message. I have removed the orphan tag. But always try to add more links (atleast three).
It will soon appear on Google search, actually it takes some time to index new article on Google search. BTW I have also added {{INDEX}} tag; Which will speed up the proccess.
By the way, is Supriyakonde account is also yours? Jim Carter (talk) 07:03, 7 May 2014 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) Actually the article IS an orphan, and I have restored the tag. "Orphan" means that there are no links FROM other articles TO this one. To make the article not an orphan, you need to insert his name into other articles and then wikilink it. Examples of articles where this might be possible: Reliance Industries; "notable alumni" sections at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and Wichita State University. --MelanieN (talk) 14:52, 7 May 2014 (UTC)
MelanieN I have added links to two article today morning, but I doubt those links have been removed. So it has become an orphan again :\ Jim Carter (talk) 15:41, 7 May 2014 (UTC)
I have removed the orphan tag. Jim Carter (talk) 16:22, 7 May 2014 (UTC)
And you are correct; the article is not an orphan any longer. You successfully "de-orphaned" it. To see if an article is an orphan or not, use "what links here" on the tools menu [20]. --MelanieN (talk) 16:26, 7 May 2014 (UTC)
Thank you MelanieN for the suggestion, But I generally use AWB to see that :) (AWB is really fast) Jim Carter (talk) 16:40, 7 May 2014 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Hola! @Jim Carter , thanks a lot, I will keep adding more links. Supriyakonde is a friend. :) Also, wanted to check with you this article comes only on India page that is -www.google.in, how do i make it international? so that article appears on www.google.com as well?

Thanks a ton, for your time and being so wonderful and helping me out. :)

Cactusfigure (talk) 12:09, 12 May 2014 (UTC)


Thank you for your reply @Cactusfigure:, In this case Melanie can help you out. @MelanieN: please see if this article is appearing on a google search or not? Jim Carter (talk) 07:19, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

"Hey Buster why did you revert yourself?"[edit]

What happened was that after about 75 nominations, you were the first nominator to show the initiative to create a Nom/Second thread on the talk page. Out of habit I just did what I usually do. Afterwards I noticed that I had duplicated your efforts...so I reverted. Normally, there is a two week period for seconding and discussion. I appreciate your assistance. Don't worry, your nomination will most assuredly be seconded. ```Buster Seven Talk 15:21, 10 May 2014 (UTC)

Renata[edit]

Hi Jim. Is this based on circumstantial evidence, or do you know something definite? I would be very sad if so - we go back a long way. Thanks DBaK (talk) 19:53, 12 May 2014 (UTC)

Thank you DBak for the message, unfortunately she has become an inactive editor. She has not been around for more than a year now. See her last edit here. If an editor (with more than a thousand edits) has not edited more than a year then anyone can place {{retired}} tag on there Userpage followed by listing there name at WP:Missing.
It is really sad if a fellow editor goes missing but in this case if she ever returns, she can remove that tag from her userpage herself. I pray to god that all the missing editors return here again. Thank you. Jim Carter (talk) 07:04, 13 May 2014 (UTC)
Thanks very much for that, and I'm sorry for the slow reply. I do hope that she comes back one day! Thanks and best wishes DBaK (talk) 19:57, 18 May 2014 (UTC)
No problem; I know, people have there own life out of Wikipedia hence it is certain that some people cannot reply quickly. Anyways thank you for your reply and happy editing :) Jim Carter (talk) 20:09, 18 May 2014 (UTC)
Hi Jim, I just saw this. Are you quite sure that Renata has retired, rather than having some other reason for not editing for this long? Note that the documentation for Template:Retired states: "This template should be placed on a userpage only by the concerned user, or by his or her request." By the way, WP:Missing is for missing articles. The link you probably meant was WP:WANTED. Renata is already listed there, as you probably know. Cheers, --Stfg (talk) 21:04, 24 May 2014 (UTC)
Hi Stfg and thank you for the message, I just missed this message :P. Don't worry friend I just replaced {{Retired}} by {{Not here}}. And actually this crazy shortcuts has just confused me. Actually I was refering to WP:Missing Wikipedians. Anyway, Thank you and happy editing Face-smile.svg Jim Carter (talk) 07:10, 26 May 2014 (UTC)
Hi Jim. Thanks for doing that. Yes, it's easy to overlook new posts in old threads. I do that often too. And yes, WP:Missing links to the page for articles wanted, while WP:Wanted links to the page for missing Wikipedians -- very confusing! {{Not here}} is supposed to only go on the user's talk page, so I've removed it from the user page but left the one you put on the talk page.

Thanks for the de-orphanage Barnstar[edit]

Thanks for the Barnstar; my first; much appreciated. You express regret that not much of a dent was made in the 119367-large backlog of orphaned articles. There is one positive way, though, from which you can view the data: in 7-days' time (when the requests for deletion have expired), the November 2006 folder will disappear, and the oldest orphan tag on the whole of the English wikipedia site will be November 2007. A full 12 months better. That, at least, can be celebrated :-) Congratulations! Cheers for now, TheAMmollusc (talk) 11:35, 13 May 2014 (UTC) and TheAMmollusc (talk) 06:10, 14 May 2014 (UTC)

RfA Question[edit]

Hey Jim, I don't know what you are trying to prove by posting a question at Go Phightins! RfA when he already has 92 support !votes and no opposition. Clearly, he already has the trust of the community and doesn't need to be pestered like this.  Philg88 talk 09:50, 24 May 2014 (UTC)

Indeed. I don't even understand the questions, especially the second. What on Earth are you trying to ask? Anna Frodesiak (talk) 09:54, 24 May 2014 (UTC)

Hmm... I was aware that this must be raised by someone. Well @Anna Frodesiak, Philg88: actually I know he is trusted by the community... even I trust him. But the second question is not a personal attack but his answer will prove that how he react to personal attacks. You both already know that many newbies start the career on Wikipedia with ill behaviour towards other. I just want to understand how he behaves i.e. if he replies with rudeness or stay calm and try to answer the first question claimly. Now if you think I did something wrong feel free to revert it. Many thanks. Jim Carter (talk) 10:09, 24 May 2014 (UTC)
Please don't take the question otherwise. I just wanted to see if he quickly snaps to personal attack or not. You can call it a test. Honestly I have assumed good faith while typing that question. Jim Carter (talk) 10:18, 24 May 2014 (UTC)
I think it was somewhat poor judgement on your part. Notice that your question is a test, not a question at all. Notice that it was a personal attack with the disclaimer that it was not a personal attack. If you want to be shown the way, just read the thousands of questions posed to RfA candidates over the years. See how your question differs? Anyway, I'd like to drop it. Anna Frodesiak (talk) 14:40, 24 May 2014 (UTC)
Hmm. My fault, actually this was the first time I ever have asked a question to RfA candidate. Thanks for the advice Anna Frodesiak it was very much needed. Anyway, I will remove the question now. Thanks again. Jim Carter (talk) 14:57, 24 May 2014 (UTC)
I think abstract questions can sometimes be informative, more so than plain policy questions. I've asked questions like "if you had a magic wand, what policy would you change?" and others ask questions that are broad, wide open, just to see their state of mind. I never questioned your faith here, although I also don't think it was a well thought out question. Live and learn. Dennis Brown |  | WER 01:14, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── No worries, Jim. I understood what you were trying to ask, and yeah, it could have been phrased differently, but after an unintentional debacle I started here by asking a question, I empathize with others whose questions cause blowback. It's all right. Face-smile.svg Go Phightins! 01:17, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

@Jim Cartar: I'm glad you've taken the advice to heart. You can see how questions like that could contribute to many of the criticisms of the RFA process and especially what the candidates are subjected to. Also, don't take it too harshly as Go Phightins! is sometimes known for asking particularly grueling and sometimes awkward questions of other candidates. Perhaps this is poetic justice (joke). I came back here because I saw the discussion about use of the mass notifications. I think your intentions were good but perhaps taking a little bit more time to assess the situation and to seek a second opinion on big things will aid you. Again, this is only advice to do with what you will but thought I'd offer in any regard. Mkdwtalk 15:48, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

Thank you Mkdw for the message and honestly I'm very happy that you're on my talk page. And no I don't ever take comments from other editors harshly or personally because they are my friends. Hmm.

I'm glad you liked it! I appreciate the offer for archiving but I'll take care of it in the near future. Thanks! With regards, AnupamTalk 20:46, 25 May 2014 (UTC)
Okay Anupam. Thank you for your reply and happy editing! Jim Carter (talk) 06:49, 26 May 2014 (UTC)

You did ok Jim[edit]

It was your first AfD question, and you got a good response. Always read the candidate history and what others are saying, then you can frame some good questions. I have watchlisted your page, and if you ever need any help on any stuff, just call me. Happy editing! From Irondome (talk) 11:52, 25 May 2014 (UTC)
Well did you mean RfA?? Anyway, Thank you very much for your kind response. I will surely ping you if I need any help. Jim Carter (talk) 12:50, 25 May 2014 (UTC)
Indeed I did. The perils of typing without 2 pints of tea in my system first thing :) Irondome (talk) 12:53, 25 May 2014 (UTC)
Thank you for your quick reply friend :-) I will do what you said above. Thanks again. Jim Carter (talk) 12:57, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

A kitten for you![edit]

Kitten (06) by Ron.jpg

Please forgive my complaint about your RfA post. I am not sure whether or not I was biased toward you because of the past. My trust was shaken back then, but you have become a good editor. Very, very few editors who start off on shaky ground turn out to be so good. I am truly impressed with what I am seeing in you now. You are an asset to the project and I am pleased to have you as a colleague. Very best wishes and keep up the good work, my friend. :)

Anna Frodesiak (talk) 21:55, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

Did you remember Anna Frodesiak I told you on your talk page that I will gain the trust of the community someday? Just like Go Phightins! I started as a vandal and trying to change myself into a constructive editor. I'm not sure if the community till trust me or not. But I'm happy and glad to hear that you trusted me. Anyway, thanks for the cute kitten I will always try to follow and obey what the community says. Many thanks. Face-smile.svg Jim Carter (talk) 07:19, 26 May 2014 (UTC)

Regarding wikipedia Article " Suditi Global Academy "[edit]

Hello Jim Cartar

This Is Lav here ...creator of Article " Suditi Global Academy" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suditi_Global_Academy). Sir i got one msg from wikipedia that you feel this page as an advertisement or promotion. Sir this page is about a senior secondary school , and i tried to give information about the school on the wikipedia page.As i feel wikipedia is a source of information for others. In my knowledge Article about the Senior secondary school can be published on wikipedia. one more thing i will edit the part which seems like an advertisement. So i request you to please not delete this page.

Regards

Lav — Preceding unsigned comment added by Lav16 (talkcontribs) 05:55, 27 May 2014 (UTC)

Hi Lav16, thank you for the message. The article you have created needs a full rewrite. You can see other articles on secondary schools, the tone of your article is not like an encyclopedic article instead it is more likely an advertisement. On the other hand you have copied most of the text from the schools website (here, here and here). It is not allowed here, because it violates our copyvio policy. Another concern is that your article is not supported by reliable sources. Please see this. Wikipedia is not what you think, We need reliable third party sources to support an article. But if you think that you can fulfill the above concerns then I encourage you to contest this deletion here. Regards, Jim Carter (talk) 06:25, 27 May 2014 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) @Lav16: I'm a afraid that you cannot contest the deletion of an article with content that violates Wikipedia copyright policy. Such content will either need to be removed or rewritten in a non-promotional tone. As to your comment "Article about the Senior secondary school can be published on wikipedia", yes they can, but only if they meet the general notability guideline. In summary, that requires significant coverage in reliable sources that are independent of the subject of the article. That in turn only creates a presumption, not a guarantee, that the subject should be included in Wikipedia. At the moment, Suditi Global Academy falls short of the fundamental requirements for inclusion. Sorry if that sounds harsh, but Wikipedia is not an indiscriminate collection of information.  Philg88 talk 07:21, 27 May 2014 (UTC)

A Barnstar for you![edit]

The white de-orphaners barnstar.png The White Barnstar
As a reformed vandal who has made many contributions to Wikipedia in several areas, including content creation and DYK, in a short period of time, you deserve a barnstar. I have chosen to award you this one for an obvious reason. I assume you will not mind that I chose this one to recognize your overall contributions to the project so far. Keep up the good work. Donner60 (talk) 04:31, 28 May 2014 (UTC)


Thank you very much for the barnstar, Donner60.
I remember about 2 months ago, I created this barnstar onbehalf of WikiProject Orphanage; But Donner, how do you find this barnstar?? Jim Carter (talk) 05:06, 28 May 2014 (UTC)
It is on one of your sub-pages. I only mentioned content creation and DYK specifically in the message but I noticed that you had created templates and edited in several different areas. It was the variety of your contributions that I thought was impressive. I assumed you deserved, and would not mind, being given your own creation. It seemed right to me. Donner60 (talk) 05:11, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

Odd Message[edit]

Hello! I was just thanked by you for something I had nothing to do with, on a page I don't remember ever seeing before in my life. For the sake of my already tenuous sanity could you maybe let me know why? Thank you! PanydThe muffin is not subtle 06:56, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

I'm very sorry, but I didn't remember can you link me to the difference for which I thanked you. And honestly you are such a good editor, that all your edits must be thanked. Jim Carter (talk) 07:08, 28 May 2014 (UTC)
Thank you Mr Carter *curtsey* - but no, your signature is hidden in the Media Mail message. It's odd. PanydThe muffin is not subtle 07:18, 28 May 2014 (UTC)
Thank you Panyd for your reply here, Actually when sending MassMessage (about 1023 message to almost all the administrators) it is not always necessary to sign the message. Since I'm sending the message through MediaWiki bot. Anyway Happy editing! Jim Carter (talk) 07:28, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

Praveen Prem[edit]

Hey Jim, please can you see if you can find some references on Praveen Prem in Hindi, Malayalam or whatever and add them to the article. I'm not asking you to !vote at the AfD, just to find the references. Cheers,  Philg88 talk 09:28, 29 May 2014 (UTC)

@Philg88: I have added some references and have changed some minor format problems. But it needs an urgent rewrite. And BTW can't I add my !vote at AfD? The article passes notability policy about actors. Jim Carter (talk) 15:15, 29 May 2014 (UTC)
Namaste, my friend. What excellent work! Well done! Of course you can !vote if you want to. Cheers,  Philg88 talk 15:19, 29 May 2014 (UTC)
Namaste to you too friend. I just !voted keep because it meets notability guidelines now. Face-smile.svg Jim Carter (talk) 19:59, 29 May 2014 (UTC)
Jim, I know that you're getting a lot of flak right now but I'm afraid I'm going to add to your woes. After you added the references to the Praveen article I praised you because, AGF, I assumed that they were valid. My bad. Now that I've checked, three out of the five (viz 4,6 and 7) are either broken or go somewhere unrelated, which is of no use whatsoever. I have done a lot of work trying to save this article from deletion and I don't want to see that effort wasted through poor referencing. Please fix or replace the references as soon as you can.  Philg88 talk 07:58, 30 May 2014 (UTC)
My mistake Philg88 I just overlooked them. Now I fixed 6 and 7; they were having very very very minor problems, see the change here and here. Now check the source and tell me if they are correct now. But what is the problem with reference 4?? Jim Carter (talk) 09:11, 30 May 2014 (UTC)

P.S. Mistakes are made by humans and I'm also a human. Jim Carter (talk) 09:17, 30 May 2014 (UTC)

Jim, thanks for doing that. 6 and 7 are now fine (although the pic in 6 looks nothing like Prem, but since I can't read the Tamil I'll accept it AGF). As for 4, I get "Server Error in '/' Application." Might be a Firefox thing, I don't know. As for mistakes, sure, we're only human but multiple sequential mistakes tend to grate a bit. "Very very minor" is besides the point, it can still cause a big big problem.  Philg88 talk 09:24, 30 May 2014 (UTC)
@Philg88: No the pic is of the reporter who reported about Prem in Tamil. If you get a server problem then you can replace it by this one. I got it just now. Jim Carter (talk) 09:34, 30 May 2014 (UTC)
And I will get an image of Prem; I will upload it by tomorrow. Face-smile.svg Jim Carter (talk) 09:54, 30 May 2014 (UTC)
Did you find one?  Philg88 talk 04:03, 2 June 2014 (UTC)
@Philg88: I found one. But I can't upload it unless the copyright status is clear; that is the image is free. I'm still searching for another image; If I get, I will ping you. Jim Carter (talk) 05:54, 2 June 2014 (UTC)
Does it qualify under "fair use"?  Philg88 talk 06:06, 2 June 2014 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────@Philg88: the problem is source. The image was given by my friend but when I searched it on google similar images appear on multiple sites so the source as well as copyright status remains unclear. So I will search for a free image and would let you know when I get one. Don't worry I will get it by tomorrow maybe. Jim Carter (talk) 06:33, 2 June 2014 (UTC)

About deletion discussions[edit]

Regarding your comment on Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Khwajagan Naqvi, then as far as I know you don't really need to do anything else with the article. You have nominated it for deletion, which requires a community discussion. The community will now discuss the merits of deletion and an uninvolved user will "close" the discussion when a rough consensus has been reached. From here on out, you won't have to handle anything. MezzoMezzo (talk) 04:40, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

MezzoMezzo I didn't mean what you are actually thinking. I was just concerned about the article and I expressed it by saying that. Generally I nominate article for AfD by expressing my concern or with a awkward comment Face-smile.svg. Thank you for the message but I know what happens at AfD (Not at all my first time). Anyway, thank you very much for your message. I'm glad you are here. Jim Carter (talk) 05:35, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

Social norms[edit]

Aloha. I recently read about the mass messaging incident you were involved in. I know you were trying to help Anna, but do you understand the concept of social norms? On Wikipedia, many editors do not like to be contacted with automated messages. It's within the realm of possibility that by doing so, you angered a lot of people who then visited the Village Pump and voted "oppose" because they were upset about the unsolicited message you sent, not necessarily because they felt strongly about Anna's proposal. So for example, it's possible that if you had not sent out such a message, there might not have been such strong opposition to Anna's idea. It's important to remember 1) your audience, and 2) how you address them. Contacting a thousand admins with an unsolicited message goes against our social norms, even if you and I think it is harmless. Just something to think about the next time you decide to take the initiative. This is a variation on "it's not what you say, it's how you say it". For more information, please read Wikipedia:Canvassing. Thanks. Viriditas (talk) 20:07, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

I forgot to mention, in the future, please ask the person you are trying to help first. Obviously, Anna said she doesn't want you to help her, but this applies to everyone, not just Anna. Always ask first. Viriditas (talk) 04:28, 2 June 2014 (UTC)
Thank you, Viriditas. I agree. There's a good life lesson here. Anna Frodesiak (talk) 05:08, 2 June 2014 (UTC)
Thank you Viriditas for your kind message. I understand... And I'm really very sorry for that. I will never ever ever ever click on Send mass message link untill there is a BLD on our project. (We only send messages to those who opt-in them here)

I'm never going to help any one again. Every time, I try to help; something wrong happens. Thank you again Viriditas for the message.

Anna Frodesiak I'm sorry again Cry.png Jim Carter (talk) 05:47, 2 June 2014 (UTC)
No need to be sorry any more and no need to go to extremes. The best plan is to do what I did: take a long, long time to learn about something before helping others in that area, and spend a long, long time watching how others do things in the community. Anna Frodesiak (talk) 05:51, 2 June 2014 (UTC)
Anna Frodesiak honestly I'm a bit unlucky not only here but in my real life too. I try to help = something goes wrong. So I decided not to help. But I will obey what you said earlier; i.e creating lots of article. Yes, I have started creating articles and Philg88 has always helped me with copyediting etc. Thank you very much Viriditus & Anna, I will never forget what you both said. Jim Carter (talk) 06:09, 2 June 2014 (UTC)
Try to change the way you think. If you think you are unlucky, you will be unlucky. Viriditas (talk) 07:06, 2 June 2014 (UTC)
Jim, what is your favorite food? (There is a reason I'm asking.) Viriditas (talk) 06:03, 2 June 2014 (UTC)
@Viriditas: Let me think... Maybe Chicken burger. But why? Jim Carter (talk) 06:25, 2 June 2014 (UTC) Jim Carter (talk) 06:36, 2 June 2014 (UTC)
Great. So, if you have a bad chicken burger at a restaurant, do you say, "I will never have a chicken burger ever again!" Or do you wait a while and then try another one, maybe at a better restaurant? All I'm saying is, just because you had bad "luck" helping people, maybe the problem isn't helping people itself (just like the problem isn't all chicken burgers, just the one chicken burger you had that was bad) but the way you go about helping people (like the way you visited the restaurant. Would you keep going back to the same place that served you bad food?) So, if maybe the way you are helping people isn't working, instead of never helping people ever again, what would happen if you changed the way you help? I said that maybe you should ask others next time, if they need help. And Anna said, try to learn more about Wikipedia before you help others, that way you will be knowledgeable and experienced and in a position where you will help others from a place of wisdom, rather than ignorance. In the same way, if you do some research on chicken burgers and find out who makes the best ones or better yet, how to make them yourself, then you can guarantee that you will have the best chicken burger ever. And there's no need to go back to the restaurant that served you the bad chicken burger in the past. So, change the way you help people, ask people if they want help first, and help people from a place of knowledge and experience. But let's face facts. Sometimes bad things happen. Sometimes you will get burned or hurt helping people. The beautiful Clare Boothe Luce once said, "No good deed goes unpunished". This is a popular expression in America. There's also a film, Pay It Forward, (based on a book) that you might enjoy that gives credence to this quip. Viriditas (talk) 07:22, 2 June 2014 (UTC)
Very much inspirational and a good lesson. Thank you Viriditas for those precious words. I'm happy that I have friends like you. I will never forget what you said. And BTW can I use your above message as quotation in my userpage? Jim Carter (talk) 09:29, 2 June 2014 (UTC)
Let's keep it as a conversation just between friends. Instead of glorifying our words, let's try to glorify our lives and relationships with others and the world. Instead of attaching significance to our words, let's make our actions important. We don't need to pat ourselves on the back, we simply have to do the hard work of becoming better people, more involved, more open to each other, and more human. Viriditas (talk) 22:34, 2 June 2014 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Very good words, honestly Viriditas, you are a true Wikipedian. I'm happy and glad that you are my friend. Please keep my talk page on your watchlist so that if I mistake again (I will try not to make a mistake but if I ever), you can help me. Thank you very very much. Face-smile.svg Jim Carter (talk) 13:41, 3 June 2014 (UTC)

Talk:Château de Bercy[edit]

Why have you created a blank talkpage at Talk:Château de Bercy with only a {{talk page}} template? This template is intended for "Talk pages that attract frequent or perpetual debate, articles often subject to controversy, and highly-visible or popular topics" and, as stated in large bold letters in the template documentation, should not be added to otherwise empty talk pages. This isn't just process-for-the-sake-of-process - creating blank talkpages is inherently disruptive, as by changing the talkpage link from red to blue, it means people think there's something on the talkpage and waste time clicking into it. This is specifically spelled out at both the template documentation, and at Wikipedia:Talk page guidelines#Creating talk pagesMogism (talk) 20:48, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

In fact, you seem to be on something of a spree of adding inappropriate {{talk header}} tabs. Please stop, unless the articles in question are actually subject to intense debate, and if you're going to use templates when you're not certain of the correct use, check the documentation page first. Mogism (talk) 20:52, 1 June 2014 (UTC)
Yesterday, while searching for something else I found about this article on suggestbot's post on someone's talkpage. But it's talk page was a red link. So, I placed the {{talk page}} template and saved the page. And started finding appropriate banner for assessment. At the same time my connection lost. After sometime the connection is again back but now I forgot about my unfinished task. And yes honestly I haven't read the documentation properly. But creating blank talkpages is inherently disruptive- I generally have no interest to create talk pages of those article which are not created by me. I just saw this article so I was trying to add some talk page banners of appropriate WikiProjects. as by changing the talkpage link from red to blue, it means people think there's something on the talkpage and waste time clicking into it. - No this is an obvious wrong comment. Talk page is also intended for adding appropriate subject related WikiProject banners for assessment and for that you have to turn the talk page red to blue. Anyway, Mogism you may find my above message a bit WP:TL;DR, I'm sorry for that and thank you for your messsage. Jim Carter (talk) 05:31, 2 June 2014 (UTC)
Mogism, I suggest we take this up at Template talk:Talk header, not here. Many users add this template to talk pages even when there is no debate per the instructions ("to attract commentary from inexperienced editors, and/or where there are high levels of debate from everyone"). However, I think this issue needs to be discussed on the talk page and I would encourage you to join me there. Viriditas (talk) 03:54, 2 June 2014 (UTC)
@Viriditas: I agree, and have started a thread at Template talk:Talk header#Usage, custom and practice. This discussion has been going on for seven years, and it's high time it reached a conclusion. Mogism (talk) 09:18, 2 June 2014 (UTC)

Jim, as I have mentioned earlier, I have already been working with someone to develop this page as per Wikipedia guidelines. Your tone is actually coming across as harassment. — Preceding unsigned comment added by SuttonClawson (talkcontribs) 15:58, 7 June 2014 (UTC)

Don't take my words personally; I don't want to hurt you. And I'm happy to know that you are helping develop an article. Your help is much appreciated. But you must understand how Wikipedia works. Try to obey what other users say. I'm sure you will like this place. If you need any help feel free to ask me; I'm always here to help you. Again I'm sorry if you are hurt.

Due to a cyclone...[edit]

Hey friend. I hope all is well with you and yours. I didn't mean to rush you. I just wanted to be sure we each got our promised tasks done. And with the time difference, we are on different schedules so that adds to the "not knowing". Anyway, I have extreme confidence that we will be able to work out any glitches as time goes on. ```Buster Seven Talk 20:18, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

Hmm. I understand friend, everything is okay except my internet connection. I cannot access Wikipedia using my Computer due to a passing cyclone which turned every internet connections nearby dead. Anyway, I'm using my phone now. Don't worry, I remember all tasks, and I never break my promise. Thank you very much for the message. God bless, Jim Carter (talk) 21:06, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

Greenwood Cemetery[edit]

OK, I took a look at the article. I found a couple of problems you need to deal with. 1) That photo you used, which you uploaded as "own work" - how is that possible? And... taken in 1994??? 2) There is a lot of direct copying or close paraphrasing, for example from here. That will have to be reworded so that is it in your own words. Also the "notable interments" is copied from here. 3) I think you should actually add more from the Greenwood Cemetery site: the fact that he became an undertaker (especially if Taylor Funeral Company is still in business, which it sounds like it might be), and that he left the cemetery to his church and it is still run by a nonoprofit. 4) In one place you say it is the first African American cemetery in Nashville, and in another place you say it is the second oldest such cemetery - need to straighten that out.

Now: since you were concerned about the length, it sounds like you are planning to send it to DYK. I don't really recommend that. DYK is seriously broken right now. Instead of someone reviewing it and that's that, there are a lot of people adding additional comments and requirements even after the item has been approved. Lots of second-guessing and third-guessing, sometimes even pulling the item out of the queue after it has already been scheduled. You can see the process in action at my last two DYK nominations, here and here. And you can see lots of discussion about it here. Bottom line is I don't recommend submitting DYK nominations until things calm down. Of course there is no rush since you still have this in userspace. You could wait a while before launching it as an article - to see if DYK stops being so unfriendly. But I am seriously not recommending DYK right now. --MelanieN (talk) 22:36, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

@MelanieN: Melanie, I have solved those problems.
  1. That photo you used, which you uploaded as "own work" - how is that possible?
A. I don't know anything how commons work. Copyright of image is confusing. I have got it some where in the internet. I polished the image by Picasa and uploaded it. I was unaware of the "deliberate work" policy. The date is actually my date of birth Face-tongue.svg Whenever I edit a photo through Picasa software, it adds my personal information in Meta data. And when uploaded, the informations appear here. I have placed a deletion tag, it will be deleted shortly. Jim Carter (talk) 09:55, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
  1. There is a lot of direct copying or close paraphrasing, for example from here.
A. When creating an article. I generally copy text from other website and paste it in the edit box. Then I start rewriting the text by my own words. Once it is complete, I save the page. But in this case, I forgot to do a complete rewrite. Now I have rewritten the draft. Please take a look.
  1. I think you should actually add more from the Greenwood Cemetery site: the fact that he became an undertaker (especially if Taylor Funeral Company is still in business, which it sounds like it might be), and that he left the cemetery to his church and it is still run by a nonoprofit
A. I will add it.
  1. In one place you say it is the first African American cemetery in Nashville, and in another place you say it is the second oldest such cemetery - need to straighten that out.0
A. I think you haven't read it properly. Taylor have founded one cemetery and a park. I have mentioned it on the draft. The park i.e. Greenwood Park, was the first African American Park in Nashville and Greenwood cemetery was the second oldest cemetery for African American in Nashville. Haven't you noticed Park and Cemetery??
Hmm. I have also seen the discussion on Dennis's talk page. I will wait untill things come down. I don't understand why people poke there nose on every good stuff. Face-tongue.svg You have done a great job on your DYKs and I'm sure it passes all the criteria untill someone adds extra rules in the criteria. Thank you for the message. Jim Carter (talk) 09:55, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
P. S Please take a look on the draft now. Jim Carter (talk) 09:55, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
Hey, I'm sorry for the way I just dumped all these corrections on you. That was kind of harsh. I must have been spending too much time at DYK and their style rubbed off on me. :-( Anyhow, thanks for the changes. I have never really understood images and copyright policy here myself, but I am under the impression that "own work" means you actually took the photo - and I wondered how you had pulled that off! You are good, but... 0;-D Now it is clear about the park and the cemetery. Preston Taylor was quite a guy, wasn't he? One thing that strikes me (although it can't go in the article, it would be Original Research): if he was born to slave parents in Louisiana in 1849, he must have been a slave himself! and freed by the Emancipation Proclamation when he was a teenager. And went on to do very well for himself and his community. Wish I knew more about him - sounds like an inspiring story. Anyhow the cemetery he founded is certainly notable and this article will be a good addition to Wikipedia. (I wonder if the park still exists?) --MelanieN (talk) 15:14, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
@MelanieN: Melanie, that was not harsh. You are good as always. I know you are frustrated by the system, but remember poisonous environment can never live forever. I assure you that DYK will get back its original friendly environment. I'm more concerned about newbie’s; they will never like that unfriendly place. They might even get involved in personal attacks which are very bad for Wikipedia. Anyways, I have a suggestion for you. Take some rest, I'm not telling this as a fellow editor. But personally, you should take some rest and keep yourself away from DYK for some time. I don't want my friend to become rude like them. You were good, you are good and I have full confidence that their style is not going to affect your kindness. :-)
Actually I have uploaded through this link by my mobile. And I can't find any copyright tags other than {{Own work}}. Actually the process is very confusing. I was thinking to create an article about very inspiring, Preston Taylor. He seems to be notable. I'm also interested in creating the Greenwood park article. Jim Carter (talk) 07:31, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
Do it! And here's a great resource for your article: http://ww2.tnstate.edu/library/digital/taylorp.htm There even appears to be a community or housing development in Nashville named for him: Preston Taylor Homes. Have fun! --MelanieN (talk) 14:00, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
Melanie: Hmm thanks for the resource. I will create all those eligable articles which don't have one. I just now saw the museum article's DYK. I'm very unhappy on how EENG is messing everything, very unhappy. I thought of creating and sending lots of articles at DYK. But no, I will never take part in DYK untill this kind on things permanently stops. Jim Carter (talk) 19:36, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

Hiranyagarbha[edit]

Hi Jim. Sorry to see the message above and there's no rush to reply to this. While editing I have come across Hiranyagarbha (source of the universe) and a ritual called Hiranyagarbham. I'm surmising that the latter is in honour of the deity. Is that correct? Would it be normal in Indian languages for the addition of an "m" to turn something into a ritual? Cheers,  Philg88 talk 09:45, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

Hey, thanks for the message Phil. Hmm. According to Indian's, Hiranyagarbha means the birth name of Brahma, an Indian Hindu god. Brahma means the Universe. According to some purans (old Indian books) Brahma was born from an egg. It has deep relations with astrophysics, I mean the Big Bang. Just imagine, Indian philosophy has determined how the universe has formed even before science established. Though it was not accurate but they provided some information’s about the Big Bang. "After the Big Bang the universe has formed" says NASA's scientist. And "After the birth of Brahma from the egg the universe has formed" predicted Indian philosophers. Here, egg means the Big Bang and the birth of Brahma means the formation of the universe. Can you understand the relation? I don't know exactly, but Hiranyagarbha is a Sanskrit term or maybe a devanagiri term. Now answering your question, No it is not normal, Hiranyagarbham is a ritual celebrated in the day when Brahma was born. We also have similar deities like Krishna also mentioned as Krsṇa. But there is no ritual with the name Krishnam or Krsnam. Instead we celebrate Krishna Janmastami. Janmastami means "when Krishna was born". There are more than 33 billion deities with different ritual names. This type of rituals was celebrated for more than 5 centuries. So, it is not always normal that every Indian word with "m" is in honor of a deity. I have an excellent book for you. It has everything about Indian philosophy, I can send it to you through courier can you email me your number? It is a must read book and I'm sure you will like it. Btw, did you notice something at the top of this page?? I mean the first thread?? Jim Carter 11:45, 9 July 2014 (UTC)
Wow, that's one hell of an answer, thank you! The Hiranyagarbham ritual as I understand it was carried out by rajas to attain the higher status of the kshatriya varna, rather than to celebrate the birth of Brahma. Is that correct? As for the book that you kindly offer, is it in electronic format? I think that the cost of shipment of a physical book from India to the UK would be prohibitive. Cheers,  Philg88 talk 08:08, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

Ansh666 05:39, 2 August 2014 (UTC)

While it is true that one can be bold and redirect articles, it should not happen while an AfD discussion is in progress. Doing so is out-of-process and can be considered disruptive. Please do not advise people to do so. Thanks, Ansh666 05:04, 2 August 2014 (UTC)

Welcome to my talk page, Ansh. Yes, it can obviously be done if the majority says so. Such discussions were generally speedy closed. Even I have closed many such afds per WP:NAC. Don't you add speedy deletion tags when an article qualifies for speedy even if it is at Afd?? I have been on Afds for quite sometime but this is the first time someone told me that my advices are disruptive. Anyway, thank you for your message & have a good day. Jim Carter (from public cyber) 06:21, 2 August 2014 (UTC)
Speedy deletion tags and redirects are different - the former usually happens when the article is too problematic to keep around; there are generally no such concerns with the latter process. And, no matter what the consensus is, it is not generally accepted that articles should be redirected while the AfD is still open: see WP:EDITATAFD, 3rd bullet point. Ansh666 06:29, 2 August 2014 (UTC)
Oh, and, another thing: your close at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Example of proverb was effectively a supervote - there was a building consensus for a deletion of some sort, but you closed as redirect - you should have undone the out-of-process redirect (I was going to, but you closed it before I could) and waited for a clear consensus to build. That is an inappropriate NAC; I should know, I've done it before and been called out on it. Nothing much that can be done about it now - just keep in mind for next time. Ansh666 06:35, 2 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks Ansh666 for the advice. I will keep it on my mind. And will close Afds with more care. Thank you very much. And if you wish you can still take that redirect for discussion. Thanks again, Jim Carter (from public cyber) 07:07, 2 August 2014 (UTC)
No problem. You're doing plenty of good work out there too - just have to be careful and make sure what you do and say is actually right. Lots of Wikipedia practices go against common sense! Don't worry if you make a mistake or two along the way, as long as you learn from them. Cheers, Ansh666 12:56, 2 August 2014 (UTC)
