Not be editing Wikipedia anymore?[edit]

Whoa, whoa, whoa! Did I hear you say on Joelr31's talk page that you won't be editing Wikipedia any more? You gotta be kidding me!! You can't do that Nichalp. You are the only person on Wikipedia I look up to, and even its so-called founder is not in that list. Please consider how disastrous and demoralizing this will be!! For the sake of the rest of us, you have to log in for five minutes every other day. If there are problems with FAR, I'm sure there are lots of people, who, like me, owe their Wikipedia presence to you, who will help out. I can certainly offer to help with accessing academic databases for references if they are needed. ... But this is crazy, you can't leave!! I mean, look, even my signature is modeled after yours! Fowler&fowler«Talk» 14:51, 25 January 2009 (UTC)

PS I mean I am sure Abecedare (who seems to be back), RegentsPark, Saravask, AreJay, KnowledgeHegemony, Arvind, GPPande and myself and a bunch of other people will be willing to help out in whatever way it takes for you to remain on Wikipedia. Fowler&fowler«Talk» 15:01, 25 January 2009 (UTC)
A wikibreak, maybe? --—KnowledgeHegemony talk 18:23, 25 January 2009 (UTC)
A short one? Hopefully?--Regent's Park (Boating Lake) 19:40, 25 January 2009 (UTC)
To join the general chorus, I really do hope you'll reconsider - or, at least, decide to return very soon. You've been an extremely positive influence on India-related pages, and your absence will be felt. -- Arvind (talk) 00:41, 27 January 2009 (UTC)
Yes. It will be weird not to see you around. Let us know how we can help. --GDibyendu (talk) 15:12, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

Hello, Nichalp. You have new messages at RegentsPark's talk page.
You can remove this notice at any time by removing the {{Talkback}} or {{Tb}} template.
Whats with the deadline for last edit on Wikipedia? Kind of puzzling me. --GPPande 07:12, 29 January 2009 (UTC)
I feel kinda lost...loss of a mentor is unbearable (no exagerration)... :( = KnowledgeHegemony talk 18:31, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

Hi everyone, thanks for the support, but I have to cease my editing activities. See my user page for more information. =Nichalp «Talk»= 19:43, 31 January 2009 (UTC)

Are you okay, Nichalp? :) Best wishes, — Aitias // discussion 19:02, 31 January 2009 (UTC)

Well, that's sad. Really sad. You'll be missed badly, Nichalp. I wish you all the very best for your endeavours in real life. — Aitias // discussion 19:49, 31 January 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for a great run on Wikipedia! All the best in your new endeavors, Nichalp! Fowler&fowler«Talk» 19:59, 31 January 2009 (UTC)
PS :Yes, I remember that well. I don't know how many times I rewrote that lead! And, likewise, I have admired both your ability to go straight to the nub of the issue and to express what you have to say pithily. Hope to see you around somewhere. Keep up the good work at BNHS. Thanks again and all the best! Fowler&fowler«Talk» 20:13, 31 January 2009 (UTC)
Good luck Nichalp. Thanks for everything you've done for wikipedia (and for me). All the best. --Regent's Park (Boating Lake) 20:06, 31 January 2009 (UTC)
All the best with whatever you take up next.

Your guidance will be definitely missed. WP India has lost a star. We hope to see you coming back (as soon as possible - a month - as you said on your userpage). It is tough to be away from such a nice project but RL is much more tougher. Best of luck for the tasks you have in RL. --GPPande 13:28, 2 February 2009 (UTC)
Oh, I was not around and just now came to know... This is not fair :( Like many other here, I was guided by you from my very beginning, probably that was 2005. Remember the days when we were preparing the article Kolkata? Please come back soon. Besides content, you are needed dearly for administrative reasons. Can't you just be here for half an hour every week, at least? Regards.--Dwaipayan (talk) 03:29, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

Rotaract[edit]

I hate to drag up old business, but I just noticed this [1] supposedly minor edit by which you removed 12,000 bytes of information. It essentially lead to the article being nominated for deletion. Why did you tag this as minor? Bearian (talk) 01:59, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

Dear Bearian. Nichalp, as you can see upstairs, is now inactive. As to your question, one link—that of the headquarters of the organization—is enough. The linked website should have content that relates to the article as a whole. Links related to specific content, such as the organization's branch in such-and-such city in such-and-such country should be placed in the dedicated pages of those branches should they merit individual Wikipedia pages. We can't reproduce an address book in the external links. Best regards, Fowler&fowler«Talk» 16:37, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:HDFC-Bank-logo.svg)[edit]

Resolved

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:HDFC-Bank-logo.svg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 05:03, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Spam in Casino Goa[edit]

Resolved
Information icon.svg

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Casino Goa, by another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Casino Goa is blatant advertising for a company, product, group, service or person that would require a substantial rewrite in order to become an encyclopedia article.

To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting Casino Goa, please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page. If the article has already been deleted, see the advice and instructions at WP:WMD. Feel free to contact the bot operator if you have any questions about this or any problems with this bot, bearing in mind that this bot is only informing you of the nomination for speedy deletion; it does not perform any nominations or deletions itself. To see the user who deleted the page, click here CSDWarnBot (talk) 08:39, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

Jeez... I was about to write to apologize for my impromptu absence. I sincerely hope you will change your mind soon and at least be part-time. I will always be grateful to you for the encouragement and support you gave me in my first days here. All the very best to you, Shiva (Visnu) 04:19, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

FAR on Mumbai[edit]

I have nominated Mumbai for a featured article review here. Please join the discussion on whether this article meets featured article criteria. Articles are typically reviewed for two weeks. If substantial concerns are not addressed during the review period, the article will be moved to the Featured Article Removal Candidates list for a further period, where editors may declare "Keep" or "Remove" the article's featured status.

GA Sweeps invitation[edit]

Hello, I hope you are doing well. I am sending you this message since you are listed as a GA reviewer. I would like to invite you to consider helping with the GA sweeps process. Sweeps helps to ensure that the oldest GAs still meet the criteria, and improve the quality of GAs overall. Unfortunately, last month only two articles were reviewed. This is definitely a low point after our peak at the beginning of the process when 163 articles were reviewed in September 2007. After nearly two years, the running total has just passed the 50% mark. In order to expediate the reviewing, several changes have been made to the process. A new worklist has been created, detailing which articles are left to review. All exempt and previously reviewed articles have already been removed from the list. Instead of reviewing by topic, you can consider picking and choosing whichever articles interest you.

We are always looking for new members to assist with the remaining articles, so if you are interested or know of anybody that can assist, please visit the GA sweeps page. In addition, for every member that reviews 100 articles or has a significant impact on the process, s/he will get an award when they reach that threshold. If only 14 editors achieve this feat starting now, we would be done with Sweeps! Of course, having more people reviewing less articles would be better for all involved, so please consider asking others to help out. Feel free to stop by and only review a few articles, something's better than nothing! Take a look at the list, and see what articles interest you. Let's work to complete Sweeps so that efforts can be fully focused on the backlog at GAN. If you have any questions about the process, reviewing, or need help with a particular article, please contact me or OhanaUnited and we'll be happy to help. --Happy editing!

Hope you're well - I thought it was worth dropping you a note to say that you've been mentioned (by me!) on Jimbo's talk page, and at wikipedia review - probably worth taking a look at both, and maybe commenting etc. Privatemusings (talk) 00:43, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for File:Bholu.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Bholu.png. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the file description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Sikkimseal.png[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on File:Sikkimseal.png requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image is an unused redundant copy (all pixels the same or scaled down) of an image in the same file format, which is on Wikipedia (not on Commons), and all inward links have been updated.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

File source problem with File:Gelid-dustbin.png[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Gelid-dustbin.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 website from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of that website's terms of use of its content. However, if the copyright holder is a party unaffiliated from the website's publisher, that copyright should also be acknowledged.

If you have uploaded other files, consider verifying that you have specified sources for those files as well. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged per Wikipedia's criteria for speedy deletion, F4. If the image is copyrighted and non-free, the image will be deleted 48 hours after 12:26, 13 March 2010 (UTC) per speedy deletion criterion F7.

Orphaned non-free image File:India-Post-logo.svg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:India-Post-logo.svg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not.

Creative Commons[edit]

We (at WP:Mumbai) are trying to arrange for a Creative Commons specialist to talk to Art Galleries and Museums in Mumbai and explain the different types of Creative Commons licenses to them (and advise them which ones are accepted on Wikipedia). This is part of WP:GLAM - trying to get them to release content under a Wikipedia acceptable license. Would you be interested in attending such a session? Part of your job would be to understand the whole thing and to convince people concerned to release content under CC-BY or CC-BY-SA. Around The Globeसत्यमेव जयते 06:39, 9 March 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Tata Power[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Tata Power requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be a clear copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words.

If the external website belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. If you are not the owner of the external website but have permission from that owner, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission. You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hang on}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion, or "db", tag; if no such tag exists, then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hang-on tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Fair use rationale for File:World's funniest animals screenshot.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:World's funniest animals screenshot.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the file description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page.

File:SugaliTreaty.png needs authorship information.[edit]

Dear uploader:

The media file you uploaded as File:SugaliTreaty.png appears to be missing information as to its authorship (and or source), or if you did provide such information, it is confusing for others trying to make use of the image.

It would be appreciated if you would consider updating the file description page, to make the authorship of the media clearer.

Although some images may not need author information in obvious cases, (such where an applicable source is provided),authorship information aids users of the image, and helps ensure that appropriate credit is given (a requirement of some licenses).

If you created this media yourself, please consider explicitly including your user name, for which:{{subst:usernameexpand|Nichalp}} will produce an appropriate expansion,

or the {{own}} template..

If you have any questions please see Help:Image page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 10:28, 14 May 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:AXN-logo.svg[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:AXN-logo.svg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image is an unused redundant copy (all pixels the same or scaled down) of an image in the same file format, which is on Wikipedia (not on Commons), and all inward links have been updated.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion," which appears inside of the speedy deletion ({{db-...}}) tag (if no such tag exists, the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate). Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted.

Speedy deletion nomination of John Begg[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on John Begg, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G4 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be a repost of material that was previously deleted following a deletion debate, such as at articles for deletion. Under the specified criteria, where an article has substantially identical content to that of an article deleted after debate, and any changes in the content do not address the reasons for which the material was previously deleted, it may be deleted at any time.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion," which appears inside of the speedy deletion ({{db-...}}) tag (if no such tag exists, the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate). Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted.

File permission problem with File:Grenadier Pied banner1804.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Grenadier Pied banner1804.png, which you've sourced to "Tous droits réservés" (i.e., All rights reserved). 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 in|article name}} 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.

WikiProject India Tag & Assess 2012 Contest[edit]

Hello friends, we are a number of editors from WikiProject India have got together to assess the many thousands of articles under the stewardship of the project, and we'd love to have you, a fellow member, join us. These articles require assessment, that is, the addition of a WikiProject template to the talk page of an article, assessing it for quality and importance and adding a few extra parameters to it.

As of March 11, 2012, 07:00 UTC, WikiProject India has 95,998 articles under its stewardship. Of these 13,980 articles are completely unassessed (both for class and importance) and another 42,415 articles are unassessed for importance only. Accordingly, a Tag & Assess 2012 drive-cum-contest has begun from March 01, 2012 to last till May 31, 2012.

If you are new to assessment, you can learn the minimum about how to evaluate from Part One of the Assessment Guide. Part Two of the Guide will help you learn to employ the full functionality of the talk page template, should you choose to do so.

You can sign up on the Tag & Assess page. There are a number of awards to be given in recognition of your efforts. Come & join us to take part in this exciting new venture. You'll learn more about India in this way.

Proposed deletion of Bowling strategy (cricket)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Bowling strategy (cricket) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Part essay, part guidebook. No sources, and full discussion of the strategy behind bowling is not an encyclopedic topic

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Speedy deletion nomination of Mullipallam[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Mullipallam requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A3 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an article with no content whatsoever, or whose contents consist only of external links, a "See also" section, book references, category tags, template tags, interwiki links, a rephrasing of the title, or an attempt to contact the subject of the article. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

File source problem with File:Seal of Maharashtra.png[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Seal of Maharashtra.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.

Speedy deletion nomination of Dhananjay Jadhav[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Dhananjay Jadhav requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person, organization (band, club, company, etc.) or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. BO | Talk 17:16, 10 July 2012 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Badgam district[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Badgam district has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

This appears to be the same as "Budgam district," so I'd like to incorporate the information here at that article as I'm working on it anyway. We can puzzle over which name is correct later.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Nuvola apps cookie.svg Happy First Edit Day, Nichalp, from the Wikipedia Birthday Committee! Have a great day!

Main Page appearance[edit]

Hello! This is a note to let the main editors of the article List of amateur radio frequency bands in India know that it will be appearing as the main page featured list on March 25, 2013. You can view the TFL blurb at Wikipedia:Today's featured list/March 25, 2013. If you think it is necessary to change the main date, you can request it with the featured list directors The Rambling Man (talk · contribs), Dabomb87 (talk · contribs) or Giants2008 (talk · contribs), or at Wikipedia talk:Today's featured list. If the previous blurb needs tweaking, you might change it—following the instructions of the suggested formatting. If this article needs any attention or maintenance, it would be preferable if that could be done before its appearance on the Main Page so Wikipedia doesn't look bad. Face-smile.svg Thanks! Tbhotch. Grammatically incorrect? Correct it! See terms and conditions. 04:13, 19 March 2013 (UTC)
