UTTAM BORN TO RUN[edit]

If you see another one that looks like that (young athlete called Uttam indulging in self-promotion), it's a sock of User:Indianathlete2016. Don't bother welcoming - just tag as a sock. He'll be back. If he doesn't get in the 2016 squad he might give up... Peridon (talk) 18:48, 14 March 2013 (UTC)

Help with a certain formatting edit you made.[edit]

Hello, I wish to bring to your attention an edit you had made on the BPL Group page, about three months back in Dec 2013.

While the converted US$ values are displayed alongside the INR my issue is with the display of 2014 term values in brackets in the "Performance" section. More precisely with the fact that the INR value while correctly multiplied by the current exchange rate is shown to be exactly ten times more than it is.

One crore (seven zeroes) is ten million (six zeroes). E.g here in the first line of the paragraph US$ 12 million should be Rs 73.2 crores and not Rs 732 crores as is being shown. Every single instance where these 2014 terms come in this issue arises of the value being shown as 10 times more. Kindly rectify this or post back on my talk page on how to correct this and I shall do accordingly. Regards. 117.194.229.67 (talk) 14:38, 30 March 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for notifying me. This issue is caused by a problem with the {{INRConvert}} template; I shall try to get it fixed. --Joshua Issac (talk) 08:49, 1 April 2014 (UTC)
It has now been fixed by Jimp (see Template talk:INRConvert#Incorrect conversion). --Joshua Issac (talk) 14:29, 5 April 2014 (UTC)
That was a different issue. The conversion error for crore has now been fixed. The template code was dividing the number given by a million instead of a crore, which was why the converted values were ten times what they should have been. --Joshua Issac (talk) 19:28, 18 April 2014 (UTC)

Childish prank[edit]

Thought you'd better know that your RfA nomination breeches the consensus agreed by the community RfC on the subject last year Wikipedia:Requests_for_comment/April_Fools'. Leaky Caldron 14:09, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for bringing this to my attention. filelakeshoe has added {{humour}} to the nomination, so it is now in compliance with the consensus agreed by the RfC, and with Wikipedia:Rules for Fools, which was rewritten based on the same. --Joshua Issac (talk) 16:04, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

Article on Travancore[edit]

The name 'Travancore' is an anglicisation of the Malayalam word തിരുവിതാംകൂർ, pronounced tiruvitāṁkūr (as given in the Wikipedia article). 'Travancore' is used more frequently in older articles, but the newer spelling Thiruvithamkoor (or -core ) is closer to the original pronounciation. As this page is of little interest outside Kerala, it would probably be better to use the name used in Kerala, and to provide suitable redirects, with explanation, wherever needed. Please see the section “Spelling and grammar” at 'Travancore:Talk'. Jose Mathew C (talk) 07:50, 2 April 2014 (UTC)

I shall reply at Talk:Travancore#Spelling and grammar. --Joshua Issac (talk) 08:32, 2 April 2014 (UTC)

The Ahmadiyya sect on Islam template[edit]

The vast majority of Muslims do not regard Ahmadiyya as a sect of the religion. Even amongst sunni and shia there is consensus that the sunnis and shias are muslims. There is no such established scholarly consensus, ijma, with regards to Ahmadis. Ahmadiyya believe that the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was not the last prophet - henceforth by rejecting the most fundamental Islamic doctrine after tawhid, they are considered by the overwhelming majority to be a different religion all together - not an Islamic sect. Unless you have overwhelming scholarly evidence that Ahmadiyya is a actually a sect across the Islamic thought spectrum then unfortunately it cannot be edited back into the template. Anyway, appreciate your work on wikipedia. Happy editing! (Wiki id2(talk) 14:24, 14 April 2014 (UTC))

Thanks for explaining. I have created a thread at Template talk:Islam#Inclusion of Ahmadiyya for discussion about the inclusion (or exclusion) of the link to Ahmadiyya. --Joshua Issac (talk) 15:00, 14 April 2014 (UTC)

striking out blocked comments[edit]

i saw you reverted then unreverted, just wondering, is what i did wrong? i see others do it all the time for indef blocked users so I was just following suit.--Львівське (говорити) 14:23, 15 April 2014 (UTC)

Generally, comments from sockpuppets are struck out after they are blocked; this, I observed in the AfD archives. I reverted the strikeout because I did not find any convention towards striking out comments made by indefinitely blocked editors (posted before they were blocked), in general, but I recognised afterwards that it would be easier for the closing editor to discern the blocked editor's comments if the tags that you added next to them were present; so I partially self-reverted to restore these tags. I should have explained my rationale to you immediately after I made the changes, and I apologise for not having done so until you asked. --Joshua Issac (talk) 14:50, 15 April 2014 (UTC)
No problem, just wanted to make sure I wasn't doing anything abnormal --Львівське (говорити) 15:03, 15 April 2014 (UTC)

Dash/hyphen in article title[edit]

Hi. I thought you might be interested to follow a recent edit to ARM System-on-Chip Architecture (edit|talk|history|protect|delete|links|watch|logs|views).

I just checked at WP:TSC and agree with the hyphens in the current location at ARM System-on-Chip Architecture. This sort of thing might be worth noting for the future. All the best. Cheers. -- Trevj (talk · contribs) 08:22, 29 April 2014 (UTC)

Seeking word of advice[edit]

Hello Joshua Issac,

Myself Yashpal Sengar from Dehradun,India. I am a new user. If you can tell me how to consider whether the material or article which we are referencing from the published book is a good source or poor source of information.

Yashpal Singh Sengar 09:29, 11 May 2014 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Yash44444 (talkcontribs)

Hello Yashpal Sengar, welcome to Wikipedia. I suggest reading Wikipedia's guideline for identifying reliably sources (WP:RS). It details how one may determine whether a source (like a book) is reliable by Wikipedia's standards, based on who wrote it (someone knowledgable in the field or someone who is not), the publisher (a publisher with high standards or one without), use by other entities (the book is used by scholars or the book is only used by politicians), et cetera. The guideline WP:RS has more details on this. There is also a reliable sources noticeboard, where other Wikipedians will help you find out whether a particular source is reliable or not. If you still have any doubts or questions, feel free to ask. --Joshua Issac (talk) 15:23, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

File source problem with File:Pierre-Jules Boulanger.png[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Pierre-Jules Boulanger.png. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the page from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of the website's terms of use of its content. If the original copyright holder is a party unaffiliated with the website, that author should also be credited. Please add this information by editing the image description page.

If the necessary information is not added within the next days, the image will be deleted. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please refer to the image use policy to learn what images you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. Please also check any other files you have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged. Here is a list of your uploads. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. TLSuda (talk) 03:03, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

The photograph should be deleted. It is not in the public domain as I had thought it was when I uploaded it six years ago. --Joshua Issac (talk) 02:23, 14 May 2014 (UTC)
