Wikipedia Guidelines[edit]

Warning icon Hello Piroshan! While I welcome the contributions to Wikipedia, it appears that you add unreferenced and copyrighted content, make good faith and nonconstructive edits based on language and ethnic grounds. Please refrain from making such edits and read Wikipedia:Editing policy before you progress.Magentic Manifestations (talk) 16:44, 24 April 2014 (UTC)


April 2014[edit]

Warning icon Hello Piroshan, and welcome to Wikipedia. Your addition to Siva Sivananthan has had to be removed, as it appears to have added copyrighted material without permission from the copyright holder. While we appreciate your contributing to Wikipedia, there are certain things you must keep in mind about using information from your sources to avoid copyright or plagiarism issues here.

  • You can only copy/translate a small amount of a source, and you must mark what you take as a direct quotation with double quotation marks (") and a cited source. You can read about this at Wikipedia:Non-free content in the sections on "text". See also Help:Referencing for beginners, for how to cite sources here.
  • Aside from limited quotation, you must put all information in your own words and structure, in proper paraphrase. Following the source's words too closely can create copyright problems, so it is not permitted here; see Wikipedia:Close paraphrasing. (There is a college-level introduction to paraphrase, with examples, hosted by the Online Writing Lab of Purdue.) Even when using your own words, you are still, however, asked to cite your sources to verify information and to demonstrate that the content is not original research.
  • Our primary policy on using copyrighted content is Wikipedia:Copyrights. You may also want to review Wikipedia:Copy-paste.
  • If you own the copyright to the source you want to copy or are a designated agent, you may be able to license that text so that we can publish it here. However, there are steps that must be taken to verify that license before you do. See Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials.
  • In very rare cases (that is, for sources that are public domain or compatibly licensed), it may be possible to include greater portions of a source text. However, please seek help at the help desk before adding such content to the article. 99.9% of sources may not be added in this way, so it is necessary to seek confirmation first. If you do confirm that a source is public domain or compatibly licensed, you will still need to provide full attribution; see Wikipedia:Plagiarism for the steps you need to follow.
  • Also note that Wikipedia articles may not be copied without attribution. If you want to copy from another Wikipedia project or article, you can, but please follow the steps in Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia.

It's very important that contributors understand and follow these practices, as policy requires that people who persistently do not must be blocked from editing. If you have any questions about this, you are welcome to leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. obi2canibetalk contr 11:14, 20 April 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for contributing to Wikipedia. We always appreciate when users upload new images. However, it appears that one or more of the images you have recently uploaded or added to an article, specifically Tamil people, may fail our non-free image policy. Most often, this involves editors uploading or using a copyrighted image of a living person. For other possible reasons, please read up on our Non-free image criteria. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. obi2canibetalk contr 14:01, 26 April 2014 (UTC)

Origin of curry[edit]

Hi there, The dictionary link that you provided as a source only refers to the origin of the word curry, not to the actual dish itself. As to the origin of the dish, in the section Curry#Origins_and_dissemination of the article, it is mentioned that dishes using ground spices have been attested in the Indus Valley Civilization. - Takeaway (talk) 10:37, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

August 2014[edit]

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at Curry shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

To avoid being blocked, instead of reverting please consider using the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. See BRD for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Tamil Translation help[edit]

Hi Piroshan, I'd like to know if you could help me translate part of a video which is in Tamil. It's roughly a 5 minutes talk. The video has graphic content in the follow up but not in the part which needs translation. Could you please get back at me here: talk. Thank you — Preceding undated comment added 00:47, 5 December 2014 (UTC)
