reversion of my talk page[edit]

I do attempt to edit constructively, I believe the warning on my talk page was the result of a misunderstanding with someone who was attempting to prevent vandalism. I clearly explained myself in the discussion page, but I failed to make an edit summary which is not required but recommended. I thank you for your concern and wish you the very warmest of regardsMethusedalot (talk) 02:29, 24 October 2009 (UTC)

OK, I haven't reviewed your actual edits... so I don't have much room here to make judgment. Have you made an attempt to contact the user who has warned you? If you feel you have been wrongly warned the best thing to do is to talk the warning user. Thanks. ~ Arjun 13:42, 24 October 2009 (UTC)

Modem vandalism[edit]

I do not understand why my edit was vandalism. Please explain how bolding certain parts of a word (to express an abbreviation) is vandalism. 98.234.28.27 (talk) 21:57, 25 October 2009 (UTC)

Ok after reviewing it I probably was to harsh here. Its debatable whether or not those edits were needed, however it didn't exactly warrant my revert and warning. Regards. ~ Arjun 21:59, 25 October 2009 (UTC)
Nice response. In fact the only word which seems to be missing is "sorry" ;) — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 18:40, 26 October 2009 (UTC)
Hmm... your right a sorry is in order here :) clever link btw lol. ~ Arjun 18:52, 26 October 2009 (UTC)

Warlocks MC and your threat to block[edit]

Dear Sir,

I have been personally asked by Warlocks members to remove the information pertaining to Danny McElheney (He has kids, grandkids and the case has been dropped due to lack of evidence) Also, the Chester Chapter has asked me on numorous occations to deleate the Zaroff story. They no longer want ties to him. Because this Wiki link is one of the major links to the Warlocks website, they feel that the majority of their site readers are see this information.

I may have deleted this McElheny-Zaroff link on few occasions, but I also have been a major contributor of "real" information to this page. I contributed the Breed article, corected the Spadorfa - Warlock article and the opening paragraph contains information very similar to the Warlocks website. I created the website, along side of, not only, one of the longest consecutive member but also a man who served 15 years of his life in federal prison for this club and is known as a leading member of the group, who have, over the last 40+ years made this club one of the most notorious in the country.

Therefore, I feel as though, my explanation should be enough for you to allow this deletion but if not, at least out of respect for the men this page references. Please let it end here because they won't if you don't —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.175.254.127 (talk) 18:23, 26 October 2009 (UTC)

Thank you for your civility in approaching me about this issue. While Wikipedia doesn't exactly work in a way where the article is owned by certain people, even if that person is included in the article. However I do feel that your edits are in good faith, so if you feel changes should be made be bold and make the needed changes. If you have evidence that the case was dropped feel free to add it into the the article just remember to cite your sources. If you have anymore questions feel free to ask.
Regards, ~ Arjun 18:58, 26 October 2009 (UTC)

Damn!!![edit]

You keep beating me at reverting the vandals! PS thnks for reverting the vandalism on my user page. thank you, A8UDI talk 02:23, 27 October 2009 (UTC)

Hey, can you check out Cambodian films of 1971 and tell me if that's eligible for CSD? I put the tag there but he removed it twice. Thanks A8UDI talk 02:49, 27 October 2009 (UTC)
Um, well it is definitely on the questionable side. Personally I would probably delete it if I saw it categorized in WP:CSD, it doesn't show notability and quite frankly doesn't make sense. However I suppose it would be best to propose it for deletion. And I am positive that the consensus would be in large favor of delete. Regards. ~ Arjun 19:24, 27 October 2009 (UTC)

Many thanks to you for reverting the vandalism on my userpage; for that, I would like to award you with this barnstar! MelicansMatkin (talk, contributions) 02:24, 27 October 2009 (UTC)
Wow thanks! Hey its sometimes a good sign if vandals are attracted to your page if you know what I mean. ;). Thanks mate. ~ Arjun 02:26, 27 October 2009 (UTC)
Hahah, not quite, but since the same user vandalized my page way back in February-March or thereabouts, it's probably a grudge for an old warning :P MelicansMatkin (talk, contributions) 02:40, 27 October 2009 (UTC)

Clarification?[edit]

OK, I got the apology for the warning message "not needed", but your reversion of my erasure of the vandalism to Talk:List of Native American leaders still stands. The specific content is barely worth discussing, but since I am still relatively new here can you clarify your policy on fixing vandalism (and maybe, as I did once, format errors) on article talk pages? Thx. Fat&Happy (talk) 20:22, 27 October 2009 (UTC)

I fixed it, I'm sorry I reverted it thinking it was blanking or something... but you were right in your edits. It was my mistake, sorry for the confusion and trouble. Welcome to Wikipedia! ~ Arjun 21:16, 27 October 2009 (UTC)
No problem... I understood the why of it, but I've been a little leery of editing comments by others on talk pages anyway ("don't put words in my mouth" sort of thing), so when you left the revert there after removing (very quickly, I might add) the warning, it just brought out the pre-existing uneasiness... Fat&Happy (talk) 21:46, 27 October 2009 (UTC)
Ah its ok man, yeah I quickly realized I made a mistake. And hey I know its hard being a new user at first! I was there, just be bold and add the changes you feel to be important! Ever user is equal on here, no-one has more say if that makes sense. Sorry for causing any uneasiness. Regards. ~ Arjun 21:49, 27 October 2009 (UTC)

Thanks![edit]

Thanks for reverting the vandalizing on my talk page. Nsaa (talk) 23:43, 27 October 2009 (UTC)

Recall[edit]

Your user page states you are open to recall. What is the procedure you use? Thanks! Hipocrite (talk) 16:29, 28 October 2009 (UTC)

Hello! I have added my section to the process page, but basically in a nutshell I am fully content to follow the same standards laid out by Lar, which is laid out here. Hope that answers your question. Regards, ~ Arjun 20:48, 28 October 2009 (UTC)
Thanks! Keep rocking. Hipocrite (talk) 20:50, 28 October 2009 (UTC)

I'm sorry but this is highly hard to believe, especially since [1] in the same edit you also added more vandalism. ~ Arjun 22:15, 28 October 2009 (UTC)

Thank you! I was highly misinformed when I was making that revert, I thought it was vandalism. ~ Arjun 22:32, 28 October 2009 (UTC)
Yup, so did I when I saw the user's editing pattern, but I decided to check out some of the edits, and all I were able to check were legit. --NorwegianBlue talk 22:39, 28 October 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, truthfully to say I obviously didn't look much into it and I just quickly reverted and went on my way. But thanks for helping correct mistakes on here. :) Regards, ~ Arjun 22:44, 28 October 2009 (UTC)

Vandalism Dispute[edit]

I don't see how that is vandalism. Other celebrities have similar information about them under personal information. How is the thing about him and his wife having a few cats and dogs anymore relevant than the fact that he uses a lot of hair gel. If you would like I can cite a source. In the meantime I suggest you look for yourself at the link to see that clearly he does sport this hairstyle. ( http://philliesphollowers.mlblogs.com/P2272766%20gel%20cr.jpg ) Thank you and sorry for any misunderstanding. DaBiGg3TiTaLiaNo (talk) 21:44, 29 October 2009 (UTC)

Well it read somewhat unencyclopedic, firstly it would be a good idea to use edit summaries, also in most cases this would be looked at as a breach of WP:BLP. I suppose if you can site your source then maybe it could somehow be added, but maybe it would be best to try to maintain consensus on the talk page first. regards. ~ Arjun 21:51, 29 October 2009 (UTC)
Fair enough, thanks for your input. I'll work on it in the sandbox and see how it turns out. I'm relatively new to this whole thing. BTW here is another link with an article about his hairstyle (It is really starting to become a big hit) http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/blog/big_league_stew/post/Two-homers-for-Chase-Utley-who-looks-slick-mda?urn=mlb,198886 DaBiGg3TiTaLiaNo (talk) 21:57, 29 October 2009 (UTC)

Hey, nice to see you back. I'm essentially gone... but oh well. · AndonicO Engage. 18:21, 31 October 2009 (UTC)

Hey whats up Andonic! Yeah I was just so busy back then I essentially had to take that break, I feel bad for how long I was gone but I guess things happen. I noticed that you haven't been editing much either, you should make the comeback too! :) ~ Arjun 18:48, 1 November 2009 (UTC)
Eh, school's taking up too much time; I've started sleeping polyphasically, but I'll probably do other productive things rather than come back (not that I didn't enjoy it, just feels like I already left and things already changed). Feel free to e-mail btw, I don't usually check my watchlist anymore. · AndonicO Engage. 16:45, 2 November 2009 (UTC)
Ah I gotcha. Yeah school is taking up much of my time also. It seems like I only have time to vandal fight hehe. Regards, ~ Arjun 22:28, 2 November 2009 (UTC)

128.8.73.83[edit]

Would you be opposed to changing the block settings on 128.8.73.83 to no account creation and talk page disabled? This is an individual at the University of Maryland who has a long term history of using multiple UMD IPs to vandalize roughly the same list of articles over and over again.

Selected contributions histories:

User talk page abuse (impersonating UMD staff):

Discussion re: abuse of user talk page:

Let me know what you think. Thanks! SchuminWeb (Talk) 00:34, 3 November 2009 (UTC)

Hey! This seems to be a pretty big issue, and a troubling user indeed. There is obvious abuse across the IPs and the user seems relentless. I agree that the talk page should be disabled along with the account creation. I'm honestly rather experienced with users abusing a wide variety of Ips to vandalize. What else do you think could be or should be done? Thanks. Regards. ~ Arjun 00:49, 3 November 2009 (UTC)
Range block perhaps? ~ Arjun 00:53, 3 November 2009 (UTC)
I was a little bit wary about suggesting a range block, but it seems to be the only solution to end the vandalism, since the vandal seems to only attack via UMD's IP range. Might as well bring it up, I suppose, and see what comes of it. SchuminWeb (Talk) 01:15, 3 November 2009 (UTC)
Also, since you agreed re: talkpage and account creation, I've gone ahead and adjusted the block settings for this user. SchuminWeb (Talk) 01:17, 3 November 2009 (UTC)
Yeah agreed, it would probably be the only way to deal with this specific vandal. I think it would be a pretty good decision. And good job adjusting the block settings. thanks! regards, ~ Arjun 01:30, 3 November 2009 (UTC)

WikiProject India Newsletter Volume V, Issue no. 1 - (June 2010)[edit]

Project News

WP:IND Newsletter is back! It's been nearly a year since the last edition, but we hope to bring out issues on a more regular basis now. The India Wikiproject was set up to increasing coverage of India-related topics on Wikipedia, and over the past few months the focus has been on improving article quality. A number of the project's featured articles underwent featured article reviews over the past year. Of these, Darjeeling and Flag of India survived the review process, while the rest were demoted. During the same period, Gangtok, Harbhajan Singh, Darjeeling and Mysore were featured on the main page respectively on August 20, September 17, November 6 and December 29, 2009. Meanwhile, articles on topics as diverse as Political history of Mysore and Coorg (1565–1760), Marwari horse and Iravan were promoted as featured articles, and respectively appeared on the main page on March 25, May 17 and May 28, 2010. Consequently, the number of FA-class articles under the project's scope dropped from 67 in August 2009 to 63 in June 2010. The number of good articles, however, saw a more than 40% increase, from 91 to 130 during the same period, while the number of featured lists saw a 33% increase from 12 to 16.

Due to the recent policy changes regarding unreferenced Biographies of Living People (BLPs), an effort was started in January 2010 to source all unreferenced BLPs coming under Wikiproject India. 1200 such articles were identified initially and more were added to the list later. Due to the sourcing effort, the number of Indian unreferenced BLPs is down to 565 currently. During February-April 2010, There was a large scale disruption of Kerala related articles by a Thrissur based IP vandal. Editing from a dynamic IP BSNL connection, the vandal changed dates of birth, death and ages of a number of Malayalam and Tamil film actors. Later he added a few international biographies to his list. He also marked some living people like Arvind Swamy as dead. A month long range block was imposed on his IP range two times and each time he came back to vandalise dates once the block expired. Currently the range has been blocked for three months till September 11, 2010.

Help[edit]

Hi Arjun, I want to ask that how can I join a Project and Help it.

{{Help}}

Hi Arjun :). To join a project, simply find one of the thousands of Projects around Wikipedia. Perhaps you'd like to help with Afghanistan-related articles, maybe you're a whizz with Australian music, or maybe you're pretty knowledgeable with Evolutionary biology! There are also non-article WikiProjects, about helping Wikipedia itself.. like the Geographical coordinates WikiProject or the Stub sorting WikiProject. As you can see the list of WikiProjects is very very diverse. You can find a large directory of them here. When you've found one you like, add your name to the members list and start helping them out! If you need any more help, hit me up on my talk page :). Have a lovely day. — Deontalk 11:52, 5 November 2010 (UTC)


WikiProject India Newsletter Volume V, Issue no. 2 - November 2010[edit]

English WikiProject News

After a missed issue, the WP:IND newsletter is back on track to being a regular bimonthly feature. The Indian WikiProject has seen plenty of online and off-line action, both in English as well as other Indian languages, and we now have a bigger, better format that intends to feature content and news from the English as well as other Indian language Wikipedias.

Reaching out to Indians has been the theme of the Indian Wikiproject over the past couple of months, aiming to involve a greater number of Indians in editing both the English and Indian language Wikipedias. To this end, efforts to set up the Indian chapter of Wikimedia have moved into their final stages, and registration of the society is currently pending. An effort is underway to push for "WikiMarathons" at meetups, where attendees will be encouraged to edit the English and/or Indian language Wikipedias. This is intended to popularise Wikipedia editing among the general public. In addition, a bot to post DYK's from the Indian Wikiproject to Twitter was created and launched by User:Logicwiki.


What's New?

Regrettably, the number of Featured Articles has dropped from 63 in June to 58 at the end of October 2010. Several FAs came up for review and were delisted, while Fundamental Rights, Directive Principles and Fundamental Duties of India was saved. Meanwhile, Chalukya Dynasty appeared on the main page on July 9, 2010. Hearteningly, the number of Good Articles increased from 130 to 136 during the same period, while the number of Featured Lists remained constant at 16.

The source code for the Article Alert Bot is now available and the bot itself is expected to be up and running very shortly. This means that article alerts for the Indian Wikiproject will again be available, enabling editors to easily keep track of developments in respect of reviews, nominations, deletions etc.

The date change vandal mentioned briefly in the previous issue made a reappearance when the range block on his IP range expired in September. Consequently the block was extended till September 2011.

In October there was a heated discussion in the India project noticeboard regarding the copyright status of the Indian party symbols. The discussion was triggered by the deletion of Wiki San Roze's party symbol images by Hammersoft as copyright violations. No resolution was reached, partly because of our inability to explain to Hammersoft how election symbols in India differ from party logos. Comments are requested from anyone with a background in Indian copyright law to clarify this issue.

Pine cone[edit]

Hi Arjun. I saw your attractive picture of a pine cone on Wikimedia, and thought it might make a nice Christmas card if I gif-animate it so the white specks sparkle like the sun glinting off a morning frost (just a little. Understatement is best). The existing Wikimedia permissions would allow adoptive re-use but I wanted to let you know, in case you objected to my re-posting the reduced and animated image. ElijahBosley (talk ☞) 22:08, 15 December 2010 (UTC)

PS--decided against adding animated .gif twinkle: that junks it up. Its a more attractive image when it doesn't gleam and sparkle and demand attention.ElijahBosley (talk ☞) 18:31, 16 December 2010 (UTC)
About a year late reply, but thanks for using it, I'm glad you liked it ;) ~ Arjun 20:10, 15 November 2011 (UTC)

Merry Christmas[edit]

Pine cone on pine tree.jpg Happy holidays.
Best wishes for joy and happiness. Just wanted to wish you joy of the holidays, using the nice picture which you (I think) posted on Wikicommons and which I adopted for this Seasons Greetings card. High school student, eh? Darned good photography for a high school student. In fact darned good photography, period. ElijahBosley (talk ☞) 18:23, 16 December 2010 (UTC)

APPEAL TO YOU Reg: [BRAHMAN PUJAN] , [UNIVERSAL PRAYERS] . written by [Naresh Sonee] On wikipedia , These above two pages are far older than the present article [Brahman] References of above titles are also available on New York site - http://www.printsasia.com/BookDetails.aspx?Id=445813482 Meanwhile, Can your good selves in Wiki Project Indian Community re-create a precise pages on [Naresh Sonee] & his book [Brahmand Pujan] – [Brahmaand Pujan] . However, Sonee is the writer of this book [Brahmand Pujan] written in 1999 . registered with Government of India- HRRD. Details of the registration is provided here on http://brhmaandpujanbook.tripod.com/ . More than sufficient, news and reviews are there on http://brhmaandpujan-news-reviews.tripod.com/ Since 5-6 yrs, for one or the other reason pages of [Naresh Sonee] & [Brahmand Pujan] are faced by communal bias from outside India so these articles over and again get deleted here in Wikipedia for minor reasons. However, many hits of - Naresh Sonee reflects on google search engine also. So, I request Wiki Indian community to kindly come forward and generously help these two pages to grow, as I am fed up to fight my case alone here [left] and moved out long back. Meanwhile, such an important info/issue on ‘Indian literature’ which adds & spell ‘new meaning /dimension’ to Brahman -should it stay lost else ignored? Your community panel has to judge at last. Myself, will not be on Wikipedia, for the same i apologise, but- pls. help these two pages to get reinstalled, reap, sow and grow, if you too feel so, I appeal to do this munificent favour.

Vandalism[edit]

Hello Arjun01, there is an editor who repeatedly reverts constructive edits due to his POV, I have warned him and have asked him to stop and give and explanation as to why he is doing this but continues to remove constructive edits such as this and this and so on, starting an edit war. I have tagged him for vandalism on his talk page and asked him to resolve his issues on the article's talk page however has disregarded it and has even blanked it, saying it was a inapplicable message. Could you please block this user and make it clear for him that he is vandalising the article and are disrupting other users. Thanks--Blackknight12 (talk) 06:18, 16 January 2011 (UTC)

I'll check it out, hopefully it has been resolved. Thank you for trying to warn him yourself. ~ Arjun 06:34, 22 January 2011 (UTC)

Thanks...[edit]

Hi Arjun,

Thanks for letting me about those certain changes. I created a page for "Debt Crisis" because redirecting to "Sovereign Default" isn't accurate. The "Debt Crisis" could potentially lead to one or several "Sovereign Defaults" but these things are not the same.

Anyway, I redirected "debt crisis" back to the "Debt Crisis" page. Free free to help with that page if you're interested!

Thanks, TRSH — Preceding unsigned comment added by Chetrasho (talkcontribs) 14:50, 9 November 2011 (UTC)

Commercial proxy?[edit]

I see you put a block on IP editor 216.52.207.75. The edit history for that IP looks to me, at least, to be less than promising. I did a routine WHOIS check on the IP and it came up to a company called "Zscaler" which, according to their website, is an Internet security solution provider. Reading through their site, it makes me wonder if they provide commercial proxy services, which, if I'm not mistaken, runs afoul of WP:PROXY. Any thoughts on this? I'm coming to you as the blocking admin, rather than going to a noticeboard, because I'm a) not sure whether this is in fact a proxy service, and b) I'd like some input on this before I go running around yelling "the sky is falling". Cheers, Alan the Roving Ambassador (User:N5iln) (talk) 18:45, 9 November 2011 (UTC)

Good deal, thanks for bringing this to my attention. Looking into this a little bit, looks as though you are probably correct in your assumptions. With that being said I went ahead and lowered the block to about 24 hours, and also am allowing account creation and of course those who have accounts with this IP address will be able to log on and edit as normal. Once again thanks for bringing this to my attention. Let me know if you have any other questions or concerns! ~ Arjun 18:52, 9 November 2011 (UTC)

My edit[edit]

Hello, I understand that I undid your edit but there is two different versions of that article. One of them is the parts of the flower but there is another one which is a room that the greeks used as a sort of sleeping quarters for the females of the house. The reason this is of importance for me is that my university class has to make certain articles such as the one i removed the redirect from featured articles. I ask that you leave the article alone and allow for me and my classmates to continue with our project. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sputnik2493 (talkcontribs) 16:50, 11 November 2011 (UTC)

Wikipedia simply doesn't work this way, no one owns an article, and besides I have no clue what article you are referring to. If you give me a link to your edit that would be highly useful. Thanks, if you have any more questions don't hesitate. ~ Arjun 20:09, 15 November 2011 (UTC)

To recover a deleted page[edit]

I created a page, Mitra O Ghosh which was deleted as it was supposed to promote a publishing company. But I had no such intention. As similar articles (Ananda Publishers, Dey's Publishing) exist here, I think Mitra O Ghosh should also be here, since it is a big name like the previous names. Can you please help me to recover it?

Kindly userfy deleted page Rono Mukherjee[edit]

There was a Speedy deletion nomination by WWGB at 08:14 on 26 December 2011 (UTC) of a page that I had created with the name Rono Mukherjee. This otherwise unknown person was a director(cum composer) of a single hindi movie. Although the movie does not seem to have done well, the music scores were semi-hits.

The tag had been placed in the article and thereafter I had given my reasoning in the talkpage and requested that I should be given some time to find out more about the person and why he did not venture to make more films, but alas, GorillaWarfare at 01:50 on 27 December 2011 deleted the page.

The person has a lot many red lines in Wikipedia because he belongs to the Mukherjee-Samarth family of Bollywood, and the son of Sashadhar Mukherjee , brother of Joy Mukherjee & Deb Mukherjee, and father of Sarbani Mukherjee. I tried to create the article just in order to do away with the numerous red lines ...

Kindly help to 'userfy' the page so that I may edit the same before it can be republished in the main-space. Thanks. ~ DebashisMTalk 04:24, 27 December 2011 (UTC)


MSU Interview[edit]

Dear Arjun01,

My name is Jonathan Obar user:Jaobar, I'm a professor in the College of Communication Arts and Sciences at Michigan State University and a Teaching Fellow with the Wikimedia Foundation's Education Program. This semester I've been running a little experiment at MSU, a class where we teach students about becoming Wikipedia administrators. Not a lot is known about your community, and our students (who are fascinated by wiki-culture by the way!) want to learn how you do what you do, and why you do it. A while back I proposed this idea (the class) to the community HERE, where it was met mainly with positive feedback. Anyhow, I'd like my students to speak with a few administrators to get a sense of admin experiences, training, motivations, likes, dislikes, etc. We were wondering if you'd be interested in speaking with one of our students.


So a few things about the interviews:

  • Interviews will last between 15 and 30 minutes.
  • Interviews can be conducted over skype (preferred), IRC or email. (You choose the form of communication based upon your comfort level, time, etc.)
  • All interviews will be completely anonymous, meaning that you (real name and/or pseudonym) will never be identified in any of our materials, unless you give the interviewer permission to do so.
  • All interviews will be completely voluntary. You are under no obligation to say yes to an interview, and can say no and stop or leave the interview at any time.
  • The entire interview process is being overseen by MSU's institutional review board (ethics review). This means that all questions have been approved by the university and all students have been trained how to conduct interviews ethically and properly.


Bottom line is that we really need your help, and would really appreciate the opportunity to speak with you. If interested, please send me an email at obar@msu.edu (to maintain anonymity) and I will add your name to my offline contact list. If you feel comfortable doing so, you can post your name HERE instead.

If you have questions or concerns at any time, feel free to email me at obar@msu.edu. I will be more than happy to speak with you.

Thanks in advance for your help. We have a lot to learn from you.

Sincerely,

Jonathan Obar --Jaobar (talk) 04:25, 14 February 2012 (UTC)

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.

Hello Arjun,

Today I tried to create my first article about Shubh Film, which was tagged for "No indication of importance". However, Shubh Film is the biggest and most popular production company of our state Chhattisgarh. Shubh Film has produced 3 all time hit movies of Chhattisgarh Film Industry.

I request you to please move the deleted article to my user space so that I can improve it with the references of newspaper and other media to refer its notability.

Deletion of "Go Innovation"[edit]

Hi Arjun,

I am Shreyan Laha and I created a page by the link en.wikipedia.org/Go_innovation

As I am not a frequent user, I came after these many days and I see that this page is somewhat contested for "Speedy deletion" and also deleted. I would want to have a copy of whatever I've written. Also I want to know why did this page get deleted? It is not about myself. It is about an integral part of our college. Anyone who desires to take admission in my college, may search that event which is the heart and soul of our college - "Go Innovation". This is not an advertisement for me, an information rather.

Notification of pending suspension of administrative permissions due to inactivity[edit]

Following a community discussion in June 2011, consensus was reached to provisionally suspend the administrative permissions of users who have been inactive for one year (i.e. administrators who have not made any edits or logged actions in over one year). As a result of this discussion, your administrative permissions will be removed pending your return if you do not return to activity within the next month. If you wish to have these permissions reinstated should this occur, please post to the Wikipedia:Bureaucrats' noticeboard and the userright will be restored per the re-sysopping process (i.e., as long as the attending bureaucrats are reasonably satisfied that your account has not been compromised and that your inactivity did not have the effect of evading scrutiny of any actions which might have led to sanctions). This removal of access is procedural only, and not intended to reflect negatively upon you in any way. We wish you the best in future endeavors, and thank you for your past administrative efforts.

Notice of change[edit]

Hello. You are receiving this message because of a recent change to the administrator policy that alters what you were told at the time of your desysopping. The effect of the change is that if you are inactive for a continuous three year period, you will be unable to request return of the administrative user right. This includes inactive time prior to your desysopping if you were desysopped for inactivity and inactive time prior to the change in policy. Inactivity is defined as the absence of edits or logged actions. Until such time as you have been inactive for three years, you may request return of the tools at the bureaucrats' noticeboard. After you have been inactive for three years, you may seek return of the tools only through WP:RFA. Thank you. MBisanz talk 00:20, 4 December 2012 (UTC)
