Thanks for the image gallery in the Stupa article. It was very much needed and looks fantastic. It greatly improves the article! Woodega (talk) 19:56, 6 February 2012 (UTC)


Your GA nomination of Battle of Nalapani[edit]

The article Battle of Nalapani you nominated as a good article has been placed on hold Symbol wait.svg. There is an issue concerning the attribution of public domain sources. If these issues are fixed within seven days I will resume the review, otherwise it will fail. See Talk:Battle of Nalapani for things which need to be addressed. Nev1 (talk) 18:31, 26 March 2012 (UTC)

Hi Nev1, Thank you for the detailed comments on Battle of Nalapani. I am quite new to Wikipedia and am still learning its culture. I will try to fix the issues that you mention. But I am not sure if seven days will be enough, since I will be traveling abroad for a week. Can you consider extending the deadline? (Manoguru (talk) 02:26, 27 March 2012 (UTC))
The period of seven days is flexible so I'm happy to extend it until you have time to get to get to the article. Nev1 (talk) 11:44, 27 March 2012 (UTC)
Thank you very much for the consideration. While much of the concerns that you raised can be cleared away in maybe two or three sittings; I will be able to get back to the article only after 5 April, provided I have access to internet by that time. Best Regards. (Manoguru (talk) 11:55, 27 March 2012 (UTC))
No problem. The article's been at GAN for nearly three months so it would be horrible twist if it failed simply because a reviewer finally turned up when you weren't around. Nev1 (talk) 11:59, 27 March 2012 (UTC)

Hi Manoguru. I'm sorry to say that the article wasn't made a GA this time round. I explain on the review page that issues with attribution to the public domain sources are still outstanding. Good luck improving the article, and I hope you take it back to WP:GAN in the future once the issue has been addressed. Nev1 (talk) 22:45, 2 May 2012 (UTC)

Hi Nev1, thanks for looking at the article. It has definitely improved because of your feedbacks, although I am a bit disappointed that it didn't make it. It would be a great help if you could pin point places where you still found the lack of finish. Thanks for your efforts. :) (Manoguru (talk) 16:56, 7 May 2012 (UTC))

Battle of Nalapani GA3[edit]

G'day Mangoguru, I'm not sure if you have had a look at the latest GA review of Battle of Nalapani or not. If not it is here: Talk:Battle of Nalapani/GA3. I have had a go at addressing a couple of the reviewer's concerns, but as I have only been involved as a copy editor, I don't have the knowledge to address the concern about the Background section. Are you able to have a look and make the required change? Cheers, AustralianRupert (talk) 09:32, 7 April 2013 (UTC)

Hi Rupert, Thank you for the reminder. I had not taken a look at the Battle of Nalapani page for a while, as I was busy with my real life. I will try to make the required changes, and let us hope the article goes through!! Cheers, (Manoguru (talk) 12:19, 7 April 2013 (UTC))
Thanks both (and just so you know, I wouldn't have failed it without giving you a prod here first!) That is great work and I think now the only thing lacking is to provide a citation for the new paragraph on the strategic situation - shouldn't be too hard! Regards--Jackyd101 (talk) 00:12, 8 April 2013 (UTC)

Statistical Signifiance[edit]

Rather than engaging in a potential edit war, why don't you use the talk page and discuss it further. OK? If you are not familiar with the process, try going over WP:BRD. danielkueh (talk) 04:10, 25 November 2013 (UTC)

I only reverted you "bold" move. It is up to you to explain why you changed the article structure. (Manoguru (talk) 04:17, 25 November 2013 (UTC))
I will be happy to explain it to you if learn to use the talk page. If you can refrain from being obstructionistic, that would be most helpful. Thanks. danielkueh (talk) 04:21, 25 November 2013 (UTC)
You should take your own advice and give me an explanation. I am all ears. So far I don't see your justification on the talk page. Note that I have not changed the lead paragraph, and I agree that it is better off than before. I also think it to be a good idea that the History section be brought up first. However, I don't agree with the rest of it. If rooting for what I think to be a better version of the article is to be labeled obstructionist, then obstructionist I am. If you want a reasoned discussion stop with the ad hominem. Here is a compromise: Explain to me what is wrong with the motivation section, and we can perhaps work towards a resolution. (Manoguru (talk) 04:46, 25 November 2013 (UTC))
It is not ad hominem, it is a fact. You have not been helpful since the beginning of our discussion on the talk page. Furthermore, it doesn't help that you are quite ignorant of standard WP policies such as WP:OR, WP:V, and WP:RS, as exemplified by your recent edits on that page. In any event, I have furthered reduced the size of the other two sections. The reasons are provided in the edit summary. If you have a specific question, why don't you post one on the talk page. Thanks. danielkueh (talk) 04:55, 25 November 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for December 5[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Hydrodynamica, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Van der Waals (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

Thank you for your vigilance. Actually, I had borrowed text from Britannica only as a rough template, so that I can modify it as time went along. Anyway, thanks for the reminder. (Manoguru (talk) 08:53, 14 December 2013 (UTC))
