October 2013[edit]

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at Unique Identification Authority of India 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. You can post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection. BlackberrySorbet 16:02, 19 October 2013 (UTC)

Information icon Thank you for trying to keep Wikipedia free of vandalism. However, one or more edits you labeled as vandalism, such as the edit at Unique Identification Authority of India, are not considered vandalism under Wikipedia policy. Wikipedia has a stricter definition of the word "vandalism" than common usage, and mislabeling edits as vandalism can discourage editors. Please read Wikipedia:NOTVAND for more information on what is and is not considered vandalism. Thank you. BlackberrySorbet 14:08, 21 October 2013 (UTC)

Your use of multiple Wikipedia accounts[edit]

Hi. An editor has opened an investigation into sockpuppetry by you. Sockpuppetry is the use of more than one Wikipedia account in a manner that contravenes community policy. The investigation is being held at Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Bhutes, where the editor who opened the investigation has presented their evidence. Please make sure you make yourself familiar with the guide to responding to investigations, and then feel free to offer your own evidence or to submit comments that you wish to be considered by the Wikipedia administrator who decides the result of the investigation. If you have been using multiple accounts (in a manner contrary to Wikipedia policy), please go to the investigation page and verify that now. Leniency is usually shown to those who promise not to do so again, or who did so unwittingly, but the abuse of multiple accounts is taken very seriously by the Wikipedia community. BlackberrySorbet 14:48, 21 October 2013 (UTC)

Hi, I own only single account Ravishyam Bangalore. Bhutes id is not mine and it been there before I registered. IP addresses should be able to prove that. UIDAI article was skewed, maligning. politicized by the group of vested interests. Aadhaar is supposed to be anti-corruption administrative tool which is hated by the vested interests. Statements like "Land scam for UIDAI Head Quarters" defies all logic & common-sense because the use of land transferred by the Government from one of its non-functional departments to another govt department(UIDAI) cannot be scam, there is no money-transaction, nor any private party is involved. My para "Who is afraid of Aadhaar & Why" is very painful to the beneficiaries of corruption which has been derailing public wefare programs in India. The progress on "Aadhaar Enrollment & Generation" periodically updated by Bhutes was also deleted. Some people do not want any positive & true information to spread against the principle of Wikipedia. My edits with sufficient Citations were repeatedly Undone without giving reasons or coming for discussion on the Talk page.

Ravishyam Bangalore (talk) 08:09, 22 October 2013 (UTC)

I want investigation be done about the people who had undone my edits on 19, 20, 21-Oct-2013 like Unfitlouie, Notabede etc. I suspect the gang of vested interests are trying to block the truth from spreading.

Aadhaar Enabled Service Delivery[edit]

I've redirected Aadhaar Enabled Service Delivery to Unique Identification Authority of India, because Wikipedia:Articles for creation/Aadhaar Enabled Service Delivery was declined, and because it's very similar to Aadhar which was redirected to the UIDAI article. Please sort out what's wrong with your draft article at Articles for creation, and then it can be published as an article. Thanks, Ruby Murray 10:19, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

Aadhaar[edit]

Hi Ruby Murray,

I developed the article "Aadhaar" from scratch. It was a blank redirect page to UIDAI. The development was done in bits & pieces from 27-Oct-2013 to 18-Nov-2013 (about 3 weeks). I have spent considerable time and effort.

You Ruby Murray (Soham Banerjee) also helped me a lot in making the sentences neutral, editing, formatting etc. which I acknowledged by thanking you.

Today I noticed by work of 3 weeks vandalized - made blank page redirect to UIDAI page which has almost no constructive content (against the spirit of encyclopedia to permeate knowledge).

My contribution from UIDAI pages were deleted in October-2013 on the ground that my contents belonged to 'Aadhaar' program, whereas 'UIDAI' page should contain Organization related content only. I agreed to this logic, hence developed the 'Aadhaar' page from scratch. The traces of development is present on the wiki-server for records.

Please help.

SPI[edit]

FYI, a sock investigation has been opened: Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Notabede. You may contribute evidence if you wish. Toddst1 (talk) 17:27, 13 January 2014 (UTC)


Hello Toddst1, I welcome the Sock puppetry Investigation (SPI) against me. Pure gold does not fear the flame!

Earlier too such baseless blame were put on me by the same set of people since Nov-2013 (I was new to wiki writing). Truth will come out as to how and why such vandals who have no significant contribution of their own, put many baseless blames in order to trouble the genuine contributors, to consume Administrators’ time, to carry on with defamatory propaganda, redirect good articles to defamatory propaganda, who have no intention of solving real problems and to block truthful information which is against their corrupt interest.

Ravishyam Bangalore (talk) 02:06, 15 January 2014 (UTC)

The SPI was not against you and you were not named in the report, rather it was about someone that opposed you in several edit wars. I thought you may have some additional insight. Toddst1 (talk) 02:11, 15 January 2014 (UTC)

Hello Toddst1,

Thanks for prompt response. Yes, I would like to provide some evidence latest by tomorrow.

Please see the data ‘Page view statistics’(Nov-2013 and Jan-14) on Aadhaar whenever my creation was on display Versus whenever it was redirected to defamatory page Unique Identification Authority of India. November-2013 had about 900 views per day. Aadhaar is a new subject in India and general public want information desperately in layman vocabulary. It is a big evidence to proves the popularity of information.

BTW, I am software professional with ample global experience in e-governance. Hence I spent solid 3 months of hard work last year on study, research, compilation and to understand various subjects / documents (technical, Indian socio-economic problems, economics, budgets, identification systems of other nations etc.) I got convinced to write my first wiki-article and chose this topic for public education. I paid full attention to content and less to wiki-rules etc. thus was temporarily defeated by the clever vandals with vested interests.

Ravishyam Bangalore (talk) 03:17, 15 January 2014 (UTC)

The SPI is now a moot point. Toddst1 (talk) 05:28, 15 January 2014 (UTC)

Aadhar - please do not edit war to oppose policies and guidelines[edit]

I note that you have reverted my edit despite my having addressed your concerns about the crores. I would refer you to the response I left you on my talk page. Everything in that final edit, including additions to the citations, capitalisation fixes, date alignments, italicisations, use of boldface, changes to remove your improper use of dashes are all backed by policies and guidelines, themselves all deemed to have consensus and as such do not require additional article-level consensus to apply or execute. I am upset that although I have taken the time to respond and answer your questions, address your concerns, you simply revert my edit implying that it does not add value. It's a bit of a slap in the face. One does not deliberately leave the house unswept, clothes unfolded, hair unbrushed (for those who have hair ;-) ), messages unanswered, or sentences without full stops. As almost all of the changes involve the Manual of Style, I think you need to raise the issue at that talk page if you disagree with any or all of them. Please do not revert me again until you have obtained the abovementioned consensus at WT:MOS, otherwise I will consider it a hostile act or even vandalism. Please be aware that edit warring is frowned upon, and is subject to limitations. Kind regards, -- Ohc ¡digame! 04:57, 23 March 2014 (UTC)

Aadhar, as far as I can see, you've reintroduced a lot of errors and suboptimal stylistic features into that article. Could you explain your rationale for each one, please? I'm watchlisting this page in anticipation of your response. Tony (talk) 06:25, 24 March 2014 (UTC)

Hello User:Ohconfucius and User:Tony1, Greetings!

1. My content contribution is almost 100% to this this article, raising is from a blank page last year after lot of R&D. 2. As per wiki policy, the initial author gets to choose the style. I chose to write in American English rather British English. Such a choice is neither wrong nor erroneous. 3. You should have come to suggest last year when this article was in infancy of development stage. 4. You are threatening of vandalism / edit war to the original contributor. Can it be upheld by wiki-society / Administrators? No. 5. In the past we have seen lot of vandalism on this article - large content changes in the garb of formatting or using AWB, misplacing the citations etc. Your changes are also large - that makes me suspicious of vandalism. 6. Both of you have written above wrong spelling of the title - Aadhaar. Please correct that. 7. Some of your changes have modified / reversed the meaning intended by me. 8. Please undo your large change and damages done to my edits (so no insult feeling to you). Then make the changes in small delta with consensus. We can invite some more people on it.

Regards, Ravishyam Bangalore (talk) 10:33, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

Initial author possibly gets to choose a few stylistic choices, like – or—but not the things that OhC edited. Your work is appreciated, but please don't revert good-faith adherence to en.WP's style rules. Any questions, ask me. Tony (talk) 12:50, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

Hello User:Ohconfucius and User:Tony1, Greetings!

Please let me know categorical answer for each of the following points:

1. Where have I reintroduced errors as alleged by you? Please point at each error with reasons/ rationale. 2. Is it wrong to choose American English for Wikipedia? 3. Is it error to write 'color', 'labor' etc.? 4. Is it a great value addition to change 'color' to colour, 'labor' to labour etc. at this stage of mature/ stable version? 5. Is it right to threaten and accuse the original author of hostility, vandalism and edit-war who has contributed almost 100% of content, several months on R&D and large writing work filled with extensive data and about 200 citations? 6. Title of article is the most basic / fundamental part. You have kept silent on its wrong spelling - 'Aadhar' instead of 'Aadhaar'. Why? Vandals in the past did that frequently, were caught and punished by Administrators. 7. Some of the intended meaning have been reversed by your edit i.e. sentence meaning became opposite. E.g. use of BUT in the below edit: Revision as of 10:47, 24 March 2014 by Tony1: Once bankcards become common in rural areas, India will become a nation of cashless transactions, like the USA but with higher transparency and accountability. Cash is used for bribery and corruption. 8. I welcome the improvements in small changes with consensus. That is why I request you to undo your own changes and then let us make improvements together. I am awaiting this as I have to update certain data and make further expansion / improvements.

Regards, Ravishyam Bangalore (talk) 07:19, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

Looks much better to me, now that OhConfucius and Dicklyon have had a go. Please note the downcasing, the date formatting, and corrections to the use of hyphens. And en dashes, spaced, are required as interruptors, not hyphens. The multiple diff, in fact, is very instructive: it bears close examination. If you want to use US spelling, please go ahead, but ensure that it's consistent throughout the article. Tony (talk)

Hello User:Ohconfucius and User:Tony1,

The above reply looks to me as 'beating about the bush'.

Please reply to my above questions categorically.

Regards, Ravishyam Bangalore (talk) 08:29, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

  • Firstly I would like to commend your effort dedicated to this one article. I acknowledge you are the article's creator and principal contributor, but no editor has any inherent rights of ownership notwithstanding. There are policies and guidelines concerning articles that are usually followed. They are certainly not reverted once mandated style elements are in place. Some of your "errors" are as follows:
  1. I have already given you an example (re dashes) of where your formatting is incorrect.
  2. we use sentence case for headers, so we should write "Financial inclusion" instead of "Financial Inclusion"; "Various programmes of state govts" instead of "Various Programs of State Govts".
  3. "Blood group", "iron-ore", "proof of identity", "proof of age", "proof of residence" are not proper nouns, and should not be capitalised except at the beginning of a sentence.
  4. periodicals such as Economic Times and Business Standard are by convention italicised, and that's why the |work= field is preferred over |publisher= for these.
  5. we do not use date formats such as "Jan 08 2014", "09-March-2014" and "01-Jan-2014". These are not permitted anywhere, let alone in running text. MOS:NUM strives for format consistency, thus we don't use a mix of different permitted format within whether the body of the text, or the reference sections.
  6. I have problems seeing how the use of boldface in "Half the population of India..." or "save Rs. 1.1 Trillion" is warranted. These are not headings or titles that are covered by such provisions.
  7. I have put it back due to your objection, but I fail to see why "Half the population of India (600 million i.e. 60 crore)" needs to have the trailing crore quantity, as it's thoroughly redundant.
  8. MOS:CITE instructs us how to complete citations and not leave them as bare url links. I filled in all the citations as required.
  9. "A cost-bene�fit analysis of Aadhaar" is obviously meant to be "A cost-benefit analysis of Aadhaar"
There are many detailed rules of form and formatting, and the above examples are not a criticism of your considerable efforts re this article. It took me many months of editing various articles to learn to apply the contents of our style guide.
Articles on Indian subjects are expected to be written with British spelling (as a close approximation to Indian usage) and not American. The choice of format here is determined by guidelines, and the first major contributor provision is only a tie-breaker in the case of dispute on certain issues. It does not come into play here because it is trumped by WP:TIES.
General fixes that are made by AWB are deemed to have consensus. They would not be allowed if there was not strong or overwhelming consensus, and just because you don't like some of them does not entitle you to call it vandalism. If you have any objections, you would be advised to bring them up at WT:AWB.
I do not believe I have used "Aadhar" anywhere in the article, although I note a fair number of the urls in the article have that spelling.
As I already mentioned, policies and guidelines represent consensual positions arrived at often through lengthy discussion. To resist guideline-mandated changes by revert-warring is considered disruption, and I thank you for engaging me constructively and for not reverting my last changes. Thank you for your patience. Regards, -- Ohc ¡digame! 08:31, 26 March 2014 (UTC)


Hello User:Ohconfucius and User:Tony1,

1. Please see the wrong spelling 'Aadhar' in this paragraph title above. 2. I welcome many formatting done by you, particularly the overuse of bolds. 3. I strongly disagree that Articles on Indian subjects are expected to be written with British spelling. I cannot change my style of writing. I prefer to write 'Thru', not 'Through'. It is simple and saves time. I am used to it as I studied my engineering in American English and also work with it.

Therefore, please revert it to American English. Thus my further expansion and improvements will be consistent with that. I hope you understand this point well.

Note: 1. Bare references / citations are put by me as I do not know / have access to AWB tool. In the past, other contributors have done this work, and now you are improving it. My thanks for it. This being the reason I request you to make small changes that bare easy to agree, modify and revert. I did not revert you last changes because it would have reverted the good ones too. 2. Lakh and crore are phasing out from Indian systems giving way to million and billion. It is in transition phase. However, currently crore and millions both have been used for consistency as cited articles have used crores. That is my rationale

Regards, Ravishyam Bangalore (talk) 10:16, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

"Thru" is not AmEng: it's commercialese and a text-message abbreviation—not acceptable in normal English of any variety. Tony (talk) 11:04, 26 March 2014 (UTC)
  • That is a red herring. Wikipedia is not SMS or Twitter. I don't believe that economy of keystrokes is a consideration when the manual of style was developed, otherwise it would probably have adopted texting slang, or a uniform US spelling. The fact is that there is no such definition; instead we have WP:ENGVAR, the guiding principle of which is that, for articles whose subjects are from an English-speaking country, the style of English used should be US or UK, depending on which is closest to the national code for the article. In this case, we are stuck with UK spelling for Indian articles. As far as I am concerned, you can continue to add to content using American spelling. The reason why I made a rather large edit is that I believe in maximising productivity, and the changes made reflect the fact that it has never been visited by me or any other editor with a MOS script. I would say once again as an aside that I find your use of crore with US spelling is rather incongruous as a style. But never mind, regular sweeps by me and others will ensure that the spelling is aligned to the "proper" code of English on an incremental basis. If you still disagree that this article should be in UK spelling, I would invite you to argue your case at the MOS thread I opened. G'day2u, -- Ohc ¡digame! 11:38, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

Hello User:Ohconfucius and User:Tony1,

You people are doing red-herring, not me as alleged. You have not answered on your wrong use of basic spelling - 'Aadhaar' You have kept silent on the treats to me on hostility, vandalism and edit-war, disruption etc. which you are actually doing.

For these reasons of vandalism, this article was semi-protected by Administrator.

Now, if you do not revert it to AmEng by today, your edits will be reverted by me tomorrow. Unfortunately, the good parts of your edit will also be lost.

Regards, Ravishyam Bangalore (talk) 12:00, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

  • If you are so convinced that you are right and I am wrong, there should be nothing stopping you from going to WT:MOS. By reverting me, you will be disrupting Wikipedia to illustrate a point. As I have mentioned before, such behaviour is frowned upon. Any further reverts by you may breach the 3-revert rule due to your slow edit warring. As the 3RR is a bright red line and not an entitlement, it could result in you being blocked immediately. Thank you for your attention. -- Ohc ¡digame! 12:32, 26 March 2014 (UTC)
Indeed. Ravishyam, I don't see a US spelling issue. Where exactly were your US spellings? You should not do a wholesale revert, for obvious reasons. Change the spelling to Aadhaar as you wish—I don't think anyone has objected. Tony (talk) 12:41, 26 March 2014 (UTC)
If Mohammed won't go to the mountain, maybe the mountain will come to Mohammed... ;-) -- Ohc ¡digame! 13:27, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

RB, when problems are pointed out, as at Talk:Aadhaar#Aadhaar_March-2014, you need to address them before running ahead, otherwise your work will be caught up in the reverts to undo your repeated errors. If you can cooperate with others who are trying to help bring the article into a compatible style and decent English, progress will be possible. If you continue to just make errors and go your own direction, progress will not be possible. What is your plan? Dicklyon (talk) 21:35, 27 March 2014 (UTC)

Hello Dicklyon,

My plan is certainly to make this article informative and of good standard.

I see a few problems in recent edits:

1. Use of 'but' has reversed the meaning intended by my original sentence. 2. Most citations have quoted figures in crore. To make it international I use million or billion and put crores in bracket e.g. Rs.7 billion (Rs. 700 crore). however some people have been reverting and vandalizing in other ways. 3. Aadhaar is a random Number, not a Number System like Roman or Arabic etc.

Regards, Ravishyam Bangalore (talk) 06:17, 28 March 2014 (UTC)

If there's a place where I changed the meaning by removing "but", please point it out with a diff link at least, or just fix it. Dicklyon (talk) 15:32, 28 March 2014 (UTC)
Yes, I will do it with your consent so that no hurt soon after you revert my edits. Please revert as I have to expand / update data.

Regards, Ravishyam Bangalore (talk) 16:16, 28 March 2014 (UTC)

Ravishyam, I see no problem in the guidelines with American spelling in an India-related article (although most such articles do use BrEng). Crore, well, if you have to, I guess it's useful for readers in the subcontinent; but the standard international system should always be used as the main expression, as you've indicated here (do space before the "7"). The rest, well, I think it's been greatly improved by Ohconfucius and Dicklyon. I hope you stay to write more on India. Tony (talk) 07:59, 28 March 2014 (UTC)

Hello User talk:Tony1, thanks for your comment.

In fact I am promoting million , billion to make it free from conversions. I am not comfortable with lakh, crore even in my personal and professional life. In the last one decade, I see that lakh, crore is phasing out from India and it is for good. However, during transition phase of next 5 years, it would be good to keep both and the phasing out lakh, crore inside brackets. I know many english educated people in Indian subcont who are yet not comforatble with million, billion.

You can transclude Template:India document comparison instead of duplicating it in multiple articles. Maintain in one place. Feel free to tweak it up. It might be OK for it to use internal citations and external links rather than refs, since not all article use the ref style. See wikisource of this comment for how to transclude it.

Unique Identification Authority of India[edit]

Why your edit was reverted by SpacemanSpiff has been clearly explained on the talk page. Per WP:BRD, you should be discussing the same if you wish to agree. SpacemanSpiff is a well known administrator here on wikipedia and I am inclined to agree with him that the entire addition by you was written like an advertisement. I'd suggest you to first go through the links I have mentioned. Nore that if you continue reverting an re-instating those edits, you would end up engaging in an edit war which can get you blocked.  LeoFrank  Talk 15:28, 2 June 2014 (UTC)

You also need to go through WP:NOTVAND.  LeoFrank  Talk 15:29, 2 June 2014 (UTC)

June 2014[edit]

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Please be particularly aware, Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made; that is to say, editors are not automatically "entitled" to three reverts.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing.  LeoFrank  Talk 14:53, 3 June 2014 (UTC)

Hello Administrator,

There is attack on well sourced material - redirect of Aadhaar and reversal of UIDAI to defamatory material. It reminds me of Notabedee and Unfitlosie who were found guilty under SPI [1] and blocked permanently. They have no intention of discussion as they do not point to specific problem. Corrupt people are against Aadhaar in India which is well written. Now I see the same pattern on user:LeoFrank and user:SpacemanSpiff. I want similar (a) SPI investigation on these two users. and (b) protection of the articles.

Ravishyam Bangalore (talk) 15:06, 3 June 2014 (UTC)

Yeah go ahead an file an SPI. You are surely gonna be laughed at. raspberry You just fail to understand what wikipedia is and what it is not and you also fail to understand the meaning of the word vandalism. Thanks for reverting continuosly, it has made my job easy in reporting you.  LeoFrank  Talk 15:12, 3 June 2014 (UTC)

Stop icon You may be blocked from editing without further warning the next time you use Wikipedia for soapboxing, promotion or advertising.  LeoFrank  Talk 04:13, 7 June 2014 (UTC)

This is the final warning that you will receive regarding continued genre changing without discussion or sources. If you choose to continue, as you did at Aadhar, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. ƬheStrikeΣagle sorties 04:15, 7 June 2014 (UTC)

Please leave it[edit]

I have gone through the Wikipedia page on Aadhaar which is presently blocked from editing. Most of the contributions to that page were from one user and that user has contributions only in Aadhaar related pages. Most of the edits from this user doesn’t seems to be encyclopedic. It is your choice that you need to be an ambassador of the UID program or a critic of that and can express your views in your personal forums or blogs. But, when it comes to an encyclopedia, it is not a forum to express the speculations and wishes of an individual. Most of the edits by this author seems like an advertisement of that program. Aadhaar will do this; Aadhaar will do that; No!!! This is not the page to write such things.

I advise this user not to edit that page anymore, primarily, you are not familiar with encyclopedic language. Secondly, you are not presenting facts. Most of them are your wishes and speculations. Further, it is a widely discussed topic in Indian media, and many people want genuine information regarding that. Most people turn towards Wikipedia for that. Because of your edits, (of course, there are other editors, who are waiting for reverting any edits, especially positive facts regarding Aadhaar) that page is always redirected or locked or disputed. Please refrain from doing such exclusive editing, as Wikipedia is not meant for that. Please don’t think that if you don’t edit that page has no life. May be there will be people who can do that job neatly. You give them enough space and time. Just hold on please!!! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ipoll7 (talkcontribs) 10:09, 14 September 2014 (UTC)
