Hi Tach, Thanks for your feedback.I would really appreciate if you could provide me a few pointers to get this page published. Opus software is a multinational corporation which has completed 150 system installations in 17 years. Thanks a ton Tach..

Disambiguation[edit]

I see you have been making a lot of disambiguation changes. Are you using any bot or doing it manually? I'd love to know. Coderzombie (talk) 13:31, 19 March 2014 (UTC)

I am using Dab solver on mainly India related topics. Tachs (talk) 13:38, 19 March 2014 (UTC)

Linking[edit]

Hi, you made various links in this edit. how do you know, for example, that the Kongad (gram panchayat) corresponds to the Lok Sabha constituency? Sharing the same name means nothing in this context because boundaries vary widely. - Sitush (talk) 08:50, 22 March 2014 (UTC)

Hi, Thanks for the message. Kongad is a village in Palakkadu District of Kerala, India, and the lok sabha consituency covers the Gram Panchayath and neighbouring areas. However, Kongad gram panchayath is the center of the consituency. In India, many lok sabha consitituencies cover extensive areas but are named after the principal city/town/village coming under the consituency. An example is Chalakudy consituency, which was formed taking parts of Mukundapuram and Ernakulam consituencies, but covering Aluva, Perumbavoor and other areas.. A reference to the name of the principal area gives information about the area, though not necesarily related to political elections. You may please remove the link, if deemed inappropriate Tachs (talk) 09:09, 22 March 2014 (UTC)

Strange edits[edit]

A lot of your recent edits have resulted in replacing all the square brackets in the article with a hash (#). For example [1] I have reverted a few but did not attempt to check every one of your edits. Periglio (talk) 01:44, 7 April 2014 (UTC)

Yesterday, while I was using Dabsolver, errors were popping up while saving the edits. Guess these errors must have been a result of it. Thanks for bringing it to notice which will help if the same problem crops up again. jojo@nthony 06:19, 7 April 2014 (UTC)

File:Photo of Joy Cherian.jpg[edit]

Hi Tachs, I've just deleted this image as, unfortunately, the licence is incorrect. Google's image search may have lead you astray. The source website has text at the bottom stating "Copyright 2001-2009 AACR-Association of American for Civic Responsibility. All Rights Reserved." which means the image is not in the public domain - Peripitus (Talk) 12:15, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

Hi Peripitus, as you rightly said, Google search misled me. Thanks for your assistance. jojo@nthony 14:36, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

May 2014 disambig contest: let's do it again![edit]

Greetings fellow disambiguator! Remember back in February when we made history by clearing the board for the first time ever, for the monthly disambiguation contest? Let's do it again in May! I personally will be aiming to lead the board next month, but for anyone who thinks they can put in a better effort, I will give a $10 Amazon gift card to any editor who scores more disambiguation points in May. Also, I will be setting up a one-day contest later in the month, and will try to set up more prizes and other ways to make this a fun and productive month. Cheers! bd2412 T 18:50, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

Wikilinking[edit]

Hi, and thanks for your work on the English Wikipedia.

I noticed an article you worked on. Just a short note to point out that we don’t normally link:

  • dates
  • years
  • commonly known geographical terms (including well-known country-names), and
  • common terms you’d look up in a dictionary (unless significantly technical).

This even applies to infoboxes.

Also, flags need special justification. And listing children's names normally only if they themselves are notable.

Thanks, and my best wishes.

Tony (talk) 13:31, 2 May 2014 (UTC)

Thanks Tony. The advice will guide me in my future work. A parenthetical reference; the daughter of Leela Omchery, Deepti Omchery Bhalla, is a well known dancer and singer and has an article of her own in Wikipedia. Thanks once again. jojo@nthony (talk) 14:21, 2 May 2014 (UTC)
You're welcome! Tony (talk) 11:07, 4 May 2014 (UTC)

Eugénie Le Brun/Ma'ruf al-Rusafi[edit]

Hello Tachs! Thank you so much for you help in correcting my Eugénie Le Brun article and getting it published! I really appreciate your help :)

I have also written an article about Ma'ruf al-Rusafi. It is currently in my sandbox, do you know how I could get that article for approval as well? I no longer have the option to submit.

Thanks again! And happy mother's day :)

Ellosh — Preceding unsigned comment added by Elloshboragem (talkcontribs) 22:53, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

Hi Elloshboragem, You are welcome!! I have checked your sandbox. Please let me go through the article in detail. Will leave you a message once I have done that. jojo@nthony (talk) 06:31, 12 May 2014 (UTC)

Patryk Wezowski[edit]

I see you accepted this at AfC. I am afraid IMHO this is a promotional bio of a non-notable person and tagged it as such. If you'd like to defend it, we can take it to AfD. Cheers, --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 09:25, 15 May 2014 (UTC)

Hi Piotr, apologise for my late revert, I am travelling. I accepted the article on the basis of two premises; (a) The citations in the article and my own searches returned adequate references, (b) the branch of science the subject of the article practices was worth of notice from an encyclopedic perspective. I believe an encyclopedia is a reservoir of knowledge where the access is through search and not by random reading and as such, any worthwhile piece of information should not be denied space. Cheers jojo@nthony (talk) 07:53, 19 May 2014 (UTC)
I understand where you are coming from. I consider myself an inclusion, but I do resent certain spam-creep, particularly promotional one. We will see what the community decides here, maybe people will find that he is notable enough. Coverage in independent sources, now mostly lacking from the article, would help. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 08:13, 19 May 2014 (UTC)
Thanks Piotr for the exchanges, they have been constructive. Cheers! jojo@nthony (talk) 08:20, 19 May 2014 (UTC)

Master-at-Arms (United States Navy)[edit]

I understand that there already a Master-at-Arms article, but there is so much more to the U.S. Navy MAs. Currently there has been input that there is too much on the U.S. not making it balanced. I wanted to creat an article similar to other U.S. Navy ratings found in Wikipedia.Taotaomona1977 (talk) 00:39, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

Hi Taotaomona1977, Thanks for your message, please resubmit it so that it may be taken up on its merit again by the next reviewer. --jojo@nthony (talk) 05:26, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

Sieben Linden Ecovillage[edit]

Hi Tachs, thanks for commenting on my draft for an article about Sieben Linden Ecovillage. You declined the draft as to stubbish. My idea was to establish this page which is long overdue and then expand it over time with the help of other editors. There is a lot to write as Sieben Linden is an internationally renowned community project, easily comparable to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Findhorn or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ZEGG_%28community%29 - I just don't have the time to do it all at once and also I want to be very careful with it since I am an inhabitant of that place and wouldn't want to impose any subjective impressions on Wikipedia users. Do you really suggest that I only sumbit the article when most of the facts are included? Thanks for an answer!

Mike Herbst77regen (talk) 18:30, 27 May 2014 (UTC)

Hi Mike, appreciate your intentions. My action was purely based on wiki standards of reviewing. Please resubmit the draft with a request message for collaborative effort and I would also be glad to put in my little mite to help evolve a good article. Cheers !! --jojo@nthony (talk) 03:28, 28 May 2014 (UTC)
Hi Tachs,

I will invest a couple of hours to present the basic objective information and resumbit soon. Thanks for explaining! Mike 178.255.20.20 (talk) 12:49, 5 June 2014 (UTC)

Tlaxcalteca Nation and Affiliated Tribes[edit]

Greetings I am still interested in posting information on the subject title. But since it was removed I don't know what to do next to correct the situation. I would appreciate some help.

Thanks in Advance

Question[edit]

I'd love to know more about your criteria for failing this AFC. I'll watch here for replies the panda ₯’ 10:20, 26 June 2014 (UTC)

All the seven references were print media reports, six of them were by Indian born reporters, four of them in Indian publications and one is about promoting Singapore, than about the company. The promoter of the business being an Indian, it is natural to get attention from local media. The company, for being young may be, lacked any achievement citations, too. Thought further references would make the article more plausible which I had noted down as comments. --jojo@nthony (talk) 14:26, 26 June 2014 (UTC)

Copy editing[edit]

Hey man, what's up! I know I already approached you for the Sleeping Dogs copy-editing a little while ago (and you have done a fantastic job on that, my friend), but I recently started working on Super Mario Bros. 3 and it's aiming for FA in a little after this week. Would you mind doing copy-editing for it any time in the future? It would be of immense grattitude. Thanks for your time! URDNEXT (talk) 22:56, 28 June 2014 (UTC)

Let me have a look at it. Will confirm shortly--jojo@nthony (talk) 06:20, 29 June 2014 (UTC)

Hi, I'm Scope creep. Tachs, thanks for creating Institute for Studies in Industrial Development!
