In memory of an absolutely awesome Wikipedian, Luke who left probably permanently this time. Hope Luke will come back one day, but who knows owing to such editors, socks, trolls and bloodhounds whether will "I" survive to see that day? Or for that matter whether YOU will?

To Do[edit]

Hi Bro! Hope you must be fine. I'm here to tell you that I want to change my username, i.e from HPD to HPD because I'm bored of having my original name as username and want to hide it from public, but I don't know how to do it. Then I tried to remember that once you also had an old user name and you changed it to Soham. I noticed everywhere (even in Commons, File Summary, Talkbacks etc) that your name is changed. I also want like that, I want to hide my real name, i.e in everywhere my real name is present (even in other languages of Wikipedia). How can I do that? Can you help me? HPD Talk 11:03, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

  • If you want to change to a new username that is not present in this list, choose WP:CHUS. If its present there then choose WP:CHUU. But before that read the article Wikipedia:Changing username carefully, if you have any problems you know where to go. As a word of advice, you have to do it in each project separately (only if you have edit(s) there) or otherwise your SUL will get broken. smileSoham (talk) 14:19, 20 March 2014 (UTC)
  • Hi again, and sorry for late, I've selected User:HPD for my target username. It is a registered account and that user has not logged in into the account since 2006. The user has only 4 edits sine that year. I find HPD suitable because my name can also be called as Himanis Pinnu Das. :P

As you said, I've requested under WP:CHUU and gave the sufficient reason for change. See this, go to the very bottom of the page and it's there.

Lastly, is everything all right or I can't change to that username?

HPD Talk 15:31, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

  • You didn't leave a {{subst:usurpation requested}} note on the user talk. Do it now. As for whether your user name will be changed that decision will be taken by the 'crat not me. – Soham (talk) 06:09, 26 March 2014 (UTC)
  • Yes check.svg Done Added the code to User_talk:HPD, is anything more necessary or everything is OK? HPD Talk 09:22, 26 March 2014 (UTC)
  • Why didn't you sign you post? – Soham (talk) 09:25, 26 March 2014 (UTC)
  • Ooops! I'll sign it right away. But don't worry, that user hasn't opened the account since 2006 Face-wink.svg.

It seems that AnomieBOT has posted some notes under my request. They are:


  • Pictogram voting delete.svg The target username has made edits to Wikipedia. Due to licensing concerns, this may be a barrier to usurpation.
  • Pictogram voting keep.svg The current owner of the target username has been notified of this usurpation request.
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Target user has 4 undeleted edits and 0 deleted edits. No SUL account exists for the target user. 2 non-enwiki unattached accounts exist with this name, with 6 total edits. Requesting user has 1233 undeleted edits and 154 deleted edits, for a total of 1387 edits. An SUL account (primary enwiki) exists for the requesting user, with 2345 total edits on 148 wikis.

Why the first one goes wrong? Will that harm the usurpation?

To put Govinda's signature on Govinda (actor) page[edit]

Hey buddy, i tried to upload the signature of Govinda on his page. Link is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Govinda_%28actor%29 I also saw that you uploaded Akshay kumar's signature on his page in great quality. I tried to do exactly what you could have done for Akshay kumar's signature. But i dont think i have done that successfully, wiki is saying something.. and also i was unable to make the signature in High Dimension just like Akshay's signature. It will be really great if you could just correct my mistake or better, if you could upload same signature of Govinda on his page by your way.Raj007bond007 (talk) 16:19, 21 March 2014 (UTC)

please at least tell me the procedure in short, to how to do that?Raj007bond007 (talk) 17:33, 23 March 2014 (UTC)

  • Mate please give me some time, I create a .SVG file using Inkscape. – Soham (talk) 18:04, 23 March 2014 (UTC)

ok bro, thanks for replying,Raj007bond007 (talk) 11:08, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

Hey buddy, sorry to disturb you..just wanted to remind you about modification on Govinda's signature. I hope you haven't forgotten that.Raj007bond007 (talk) 10:43, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

Anushka Shetty[edit]

Can you or Kailash source this and improve it?♦ Dr. Blofeld 09:58, 23 March 2014 (UTC)

  • I think Kailash can, because I can't speak Tamil, Telugu (he does I think, at least the first one) and the actor has acted in Southern films in these languages. – Soham (talk) 10:03, 23 March 2014 (UTC)
What is it? I can speak Tamil, but not read it easily. Kailash29792 (talk) 10:15, 23 March 2014 (UTC)
  • Is there any chance mate you can improve this article? 'Cause I can't. – Soham (talk) 11:06, 23 March 2014 (UTC)
If I am given specific sources I can. But only English ones. Meanwhile, u can also seek help from the veteran User:Editor 2050. Kailash29792 (talk) 11:19, 23 March 2014 (UTC)

It gets 70,000 hits a month. I think tit's worth doing if you can.♦ Dr. Blofeld 11:49, 24 March 2014 (UTC)

Currently working on it. But since all the sources are entirely English, I don't think you will have difficulties either. Kailash29792 (talk) 12:19, 2 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Thanks, Kailash. Even though language barrier is one of the principal reasons I chose not to work on it but also the time I get these days to edit (take a look at my contribs). – Soham (talk) 13:41, 2 April 2014 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:Haseetohphasee poster.jpg)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:Haseetohphasee poster.jpg. 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 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 '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 all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Werieth (talk) 16:00, 31 March 2014 (UTC)

Kaanchi: The Unbreakable[edit]

I received a warning on "Orphaned image", for the poster I have uploaded for Kaanchi..File:Kaanchi.jpg, you have replaced that poster with a completely new one. Please do not completely remove the posters like this, you can always try the option of "Upload a new version of this file", so that the image will get replaced. Please do this hereafter. Anyhow as Kaanchi is the story of Misthi, it would have been appropriate to have the heroine prominent poster as the best one, nevertheless, your poster is good as well. Rajeshbieee (talk) 18:11, 31 March 2014 (UTC)

  • Once again you replaced someone else's upload? --TitoDutta 20:14, 31 March 2014 (UTC)
  • Rajeshbieee, add the image back in the article if yours' is an older upload and the image has not lost relevance. And do it everytime when such things happen. There is a crazy trend here in Wikipedia to replace images unnecessarily. --TitoDutta 20:17, 31 March 2014 (UTC)
  • Talk to Whistlingwoods. Take care of this revision. Tito, comment only when you know the full story, not when you know only one half of it. – Soham (talk) 14:23, 1 April 2014 (UTC)
  • All right, you did not make that edit. Anyway, are you manually reducing image size? --TitoDutta 14:40, 1 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Yes. – Soham (talk) 14:55, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

WikiCup 2014 March newsletter[edit]

A quick update as we are half way through round two of this year's competition. WikiCup newcomer Smithsonian Institution Godot13 (submissions) (Pool E) leads, having produced a massive set of featured pictures for Silver certificate (United States), an article also brought to featured list status. Former finalist Oh, better far to live and die / Under the brave black flag I fly... Adam Cuerden (submissions) (Pool G) is in second, which he owes mostly to his work with historical images, including a number of images from Urania's Mirror, an article also brought to good status. 2010 champion (Pool C) is third overall, thanks to contributions relating to naval history, including the newly featured Japanese battleship Nagato. Rhodesia Cliftonian (submissions), who currently leads Pool A and is sixth overall, takes the title for the highest scoring individual article of the competition so far, with the top importance featured article Ian Smith.

With 26 people having already scored over 100 points, it is likely that well over 100 points will be needed to secure a place in round 3. Recent years have required 123 (2013), 65 (2012), 41 (2011) and 100 (2010). Remember that only 64 will progress to round 3 at the end of April. Invitations for collaborative writing efforts or any other discussion of potentially interesting work is always welcome on the WikiCup talk page; if two or more WikiCup competitors have done significant work on an article, all can claim points equally. If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article candidates, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews. If you want to help out with the WikiCup, please do your bit to help keep down the review backlogs! Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck! If you wish to start or stop receiving this newsletter, please feel free to add or remove yourself from Wikipedia:WikiCup/Newsletter/Send.

Pls help me answering as ur a much senior editor and knew the back grounds of this article. Pls check here Thanks. :)

Why[edit]

Why in Kahaani using Hindustan times for info box details. I have used that sourced for the budget mainly not for the gross in GTPM. As gross is already detailed in box office column. And also star rating box in Kahaani should be removed too right ?? Daan0001 (talk) 10:54, 12 April 2014 (UTC)

Please finish it ASAP. I say this on behalf of Blofeld. Kailash29792 (talk) 16:02, 29 April 2014 (UTC)

Soham, if you can't find the time to complete a review pass it onto somebody else, I don't mind.♦ Dr. Blofeld 09:24, 3 May 2014 (UTC)

I hope Blofeld will find a more experienced and veteran reviewer than me to complete the review for two reasons: I do not have the experience in GA reviewing, and currently I am tangled in academics. Kailash29792 (talk) 07:26, 5 May 2014 (UTC)

WikiCup 2014 April newsletter[edit]

Round 3 of the 2014 WikiCup has just begun; 32 competitors remain. Pool G's Oh, better far to live and die / Under the brave black flag I fly... Adam Cuerden (submissions) was Round 2's highest scorer, with a large number of featured picture credits. In March/April, he restored star charts from Urania's Mirror, lithographs of various warships (such as SMS Gefion) and assorted other historical media. Second overall was Pool E's Smithsonian Institution Godot13 (submissions), whose featured list Silver certificate (United States) contains dozens of scans of banknotes recently promoted to featured picture status. Third was Pool G's United States ChrisGualtieri (submissions) who has produced a large number of good articles, many, including Falkner Island, on Connecticut-related topics. Other successful participants included Rhodesia Cliftonian (submissions), who saw three articles (including the top-importance Ian Smith) through featured article candidacies, and Washington, D.C. Caponer (submissions), who saw three lists (including the beautifully-illustrated list of plantations in West Virginia) through featured list candidacies. High-importance good articles promoted this round include narwhal from Canada Reid,iain james (submissions), tiger from Wales Cwmhiraeth (submissions) and The Lion King from Minas Gerais Igordebraga (submissions). We also saw our first featured topic points of the competition, awarded to Nepal Czar (submissions) and Indiana Red Phoenix (submissions) for their work on the Sega Genesis topic. No points have been claimed so far for good topics or featured portals.

192 was our lowest qualifying score, again showing that this WikiCup is the most competitive ever. In previous years, 123 (2013), 65 (2012), 41 (2011) or 100 (2010) secured a place in Round 3. Pool H was the strongest performer, with all but one of its members advancing, while only the two highest scorers in Pools G and F advanced. At the end of June, 16 users will advance into the semi-finals. If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article candidates, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews.

Hi Soham, apologies for back checking your content. But I have concern about the logo of the movie. Firstly this twitter is not verified and secondly it's lacks verification. I'm just requesting for you to check on this as you have uploaded the image. And if I'm wrong I am appolosing. Hope all well. Daan0001 (talk) 15:43, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

Daan, yes I have gone pretty quiet these days but since I was checking out some House things I decided to log in. As for your query, WP articles (at least Bollywood ones) don't keep track of YouTube videos as they are subject to change, we do however list the impact of the hits on the subject of the article. There ya go! – Soham (talk) 13:56, 23 June 2014 (UTC)

After an extremely close race, Round 3 is over. 244 points secured a place in Round 4, which is comparable to previous years- 321 was required in 2013, while 243 points were needed in 2012. Pool C's Smithsonian Institution Godot13 (submissions) was the round's highest scorer, mostly due to a 32 featured pictures, including both scans and photographs. Also from Pool C, Scotland Casliber (submissions) finished second overall, claiming three featured articles, including the high-importance Grus (constellation). Third place was Pool B's , whose contributions included featured articles Russian battleship Poltava (1894) and Russian battleship Peresvet. Pool C saw the highest number of participants advance, with six out of eight making it to the next round.

The round saw this year's first featured portal, with Republic of Rose Island Sven Manguard (submissions) taking Portal:Literature to featured status. The round also saw the first good topic points, thanks to Florida 12george1 (submissions) and the 2013 Atlantic hurricane season. This means that all content types have been claimed this year. Other contributions of note this round include a featured topic on Maya Angelou's autobiographies from Idaho Figureskatingfan (submissions), a good article on the noted Czech footballer Tomáš Rosický from Bartošovice v Orlických horách Cloudz679 (submissions) and a now-featured video game screenshot, freely released due to the efforts of Republic of Rose Island Sven Manguard (submissions).

The judges would like to remind participants to update submission pages promptly. This means that content can be checked, and allows those following the competition (including those participating) to keep track of scores effectively. This round has seen discussion about various aspects of the WikiCup's rules and procedures. Those interested in the competition can be assured that formal discussions about how next year's competition will work will be opened shortly, and all are welcome to voice their views then. If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article candidates, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews. If you want to help out with the WikiCup, please do your bit to help keep down the review backlogs! Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck!

Back to trouble you again[edit]

Hi Soham, Another question for you. I have been witnessing some edits from IP users adding a reference and more likely nonconstructive edits with a web page called, Filmypandits. And its all over on upcoming high budget movies i.e Kick, It's entertainment. Any idea how we can stop this as im sick of removing them. If we band that web site it would be much easier as no one would be able to add it. Eg See [1].

  • I see you have reported it to WP:WPSPAM, which I would have done so good work. Track the revisions and contributions of the spamming IP's using this. Report the IP's there and an admin, most probably MER-C will take action and if necessary report it for spam blacklisting. – Soham (talk) 13:39, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
Thank you so much for the reply. Yes I have reported there. Found it on google and followed the link and MER-C did a great job blocking spam users. I'm on it as I'm fed up of reverting these spam content from pages. Hope your well. Pls look at Bombay velvet when you get time. As you have uploaded it i now think I'm wrong. But please do check, as twitter account is not verified and we might be miss led here. There's no sign on Internet about a first look release. This might be a promotion activity as on the tweet it says to change the DP of users to promote the release date and we should not let this happen on wiki. Thanks.
