April 2011[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, you are reminded not to attack other editors. Please comment on the contributions and not the contributors. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. You are welcome to rephrase your comment as a civil criticism of the article. Thank you. Jasper Deng (talk) 05:11, 2 April 2011 (UTC)

Please give link to referred topic for better understanding. Thanks. Thisthat2011 (talk) 05:14, 2 April 2011 (UTC)

[1]. Do not try to disparage the background of others.Jasper Deng (talk) 05:18, 2 April 2011 (UTC)

If you are referring to "narendra modi's mother tongue" topic then I dont consider that as personal attack. That Narendra Modi is Gujarati and talks in Gujarati is a fact as true as daylight. It just means that the user has not understood that the language is called Gujarati is all. It is acknowledged the fact that the user has another mother tongue which can be as good and culturally rich. In no sense it is disparaging.

It is still a personal attack. Instead of saying something like that, please explain to the user exactly what he/she said wrong, and cite your sources.Jasper Deng (talk) 05:24, 2 April 2011 (UTC)

Ok done.

Your recent edits[edit]

Information.svg Hello. In case you didn't know, when you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion, you should sign your posts by typing four halfwidth tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment. You could also click on the signature button Insert-signature.png located above the edit window. This will automatically insert a signature with your username or IP address and the time you posted the comment.

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war. Users are expected to collaborate with others and avoid editing disruptively.

In particular, the three-revert rule states that:

  1. Making more than three reversions on a single page within a 24-hour period is almost always grounds for an immediate block.
  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 continue to edit war, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. Jasper Deng (talk) 23:21, 4 April 2011 (UTC)

Could you specify please where I have indulged in Edit war? In two topics [Slavery] and [Alexander the great] the edits were hardly from one line or more. When edits were reverted, it was decided later that a consensus is needed and no edits are done after that. And how long could a block without notice last, considering it looks imminent? Please note that most of my edits are in talk pages and not at all currently on Wikipedia pages and still I am getting this message. Thisthat2011 (talk) 08:17, 5 April 2011 (UTC)

Hinduism[edit]

The issue is not the information, but the source. Wikipedia's reliable sourcing guidelines (link to them here) do not allow user-generated sources (such as wikidot websites), nor do they allow self-published sources (such as tripod pages). I recommend looking on Google Books for a source (just make sure the publisher is not a pay-to-print publisher like Lulu.com). None of the sources in the Christianity article are from self-published sources. As you see here, I removed a spam link that would count as a self-published source if it was used as a source in the article). The authors of that article's sources had to get approval from someone else to get those books published. Self-published does not mean that the author is a Hindu, Christian, or whatever. Self-published means the author published by himself, and had noone to make sure he was publishing good material. I highly recommend studying the reliable sourcing guidelines for more information. Ian.thomson (talk) 14:24, 16 April 2011 (UTC)

Guess this is a good source here. If this can be considered as one, do let me know please so I can make changes.Thisthat2011 (talk) 22:05, 16 April 2011 (UTC)
Yes, that is a good source. The book comes from a company that specializes in academic works, so the author's work would have been scrutinized. Ian.thomson (talk) 20:59, 17 April 2011 (UTC)

Edit war? or removal of sourced content?[edit]

Please do not add commentary or your own personal analysis to Wikipedia articles. Doing so violates Wikipedia's neutral point of view policy and breaches the formal tone expected in an encyclopedia. Thank you. You have been continuing to add personal commentary in various articles and/or sourcing dubious content to unreliable sources, please refrain from doing that.SpacemanSpiff 07:32, 29 April 2011 (UTC)

You are accusing me of something for which there is a sourced content. You are removing the sourced content and then accusing me of "adding personal commentary" though not a single word of the content is my own. Please desist from deleting referenced content and then accusing. It is vandalism and there is a topic in discussion board Talk:Christianity_in_India#Vandalism_in_edits_.5B.7C_here.5D_and_user_SpacemanSpiff_.5B.7C_here.5D here as well.

Talk:Rashtriya_Swayamsevak_Sangh#Edit_request_from_67.78.85.67.2C_12_April_2011 edit discussion for consensus[edit]

Hi, it seems that discussion for Talk:Rashtriya_Swayamsevak_Sangh#Edit_request_from_67.78.85.67.2C_12_April_2011 is not going anywhere, not because of consensus, but because of no consensus is claimed, in spite of 3 different users saying so. The reasons are given and are finally replies are a new question: Extending Biographies of living people to organisations? ... , I think you have answered your own question! ... For other organisations, go to the respective page/talk page... and so on; In spite of giving reasons. So I would like to know where are the ironclad rules for first line of an organization? Where is the rule that usual principles can not be extended to first line of an organization? I would request to set a standard for organizations and as such. Also I would like to know what to do in cases where in the name of consensus, no effort is made to form a consensus but all efforts are made just to claim no consensus, a similar behavior is noticed here also. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:India#No_consensus_in_the_secondary_and_tertiary_sources_for_India_also_Bharat.

Hi thisthat2011. I'm a clerk for the Arbitration Committee and have moved your post here as it was in the wrong place.
ArbCom doesn't get involved in content disputes, and this appears to be a content dispute. You've got several options but you need to only use one at a time. If you think that this is primarily a BLP issue, you can go to the WP:BLPN and raise your concerns there. If you think it is a sourcing issue, we have WP:RSN. It occurs to me that there may be NPOV problems and we have WP:NPOVN for discussing those.
We also have dispute resolution venues WP:DR.
Another suggestion would be to raise a request for comment on the issue - see WP:RFC concerning where text should be placed.
It's up to you to decide what you want to do. Dougweller (talk) 09:02, 1 May 2011 (UTC)

Warning[edit]

Following my request on your talk page about disruption by continual repeating your comments, you have continued to repeat the comments so unless it concerns a request for comment then to keep repeating your comment will be considered disruptive and you may have your editing rights restricted. MilborneOne (talk) 09:12, 2 May 2011 (UTC)

Stop hand nuvola.svg Despite my request not to keep repeating your points at Talk:India you have repeated them again today [3]. Although we assume good faith your continually making the same points is clearly disruptive, it may be worth reading the Request for comment page for instructions if you wish to gain further views on the subject, but to keep repeating your comments will be seen as being disruptive and you may have your editing rights restricted. MilborneOne (talk) 21:16, 5 May 2011 (UTC)

As far as name Bharat is considered, I have pointed out with reasons from my side, instead of opposing it again and again unreasonably, and therefore not disruptive according to me. Though, I can see that apparently no weight is been given here for reasons.
As I have pointed out on your page, the repetition is because of repeated assertions from other users. As it is, it is a talk page, not main page India. ..असक्तः सततं कार्य कर्म समाचर | असक्तः हि आचरन् कर्म.. Humour Thisthat2011 21:43, 5 May 2011 (UTC)
I can understand your frustration, you have a point to make and nobody is saying that you cant have a view and make suggestions to improve the article. The request to include Bharat in the lead has not been supported by a number of editors, although other editors have supported it. The default for the article is to stay the same unless you can gain a consensus on the talk page. It is not for other editors to show why it should change but for you to raise points why it should. The problem with repeating the points is that the opinion of the other editors on the talk page is not changed by repeating it, which is why it is seen as disruptive. Editors then get frustrated and it can lead to bad behaviour by other editors which we really dont want. My suggestion is that you will not get support on the talk page no matter what you say but as I am sure you believe you have a valid suggestion then it is better to get other editors involved to see if a wider audience supports your views. The best method is to create a request for comment, you can follow the instructions on the Wikipedia:Requests for comment page, it also suggested an automated page to make it easier at RfC posting tool. What then happens is that other editors/users see the notice for comments and some of them will not have visited the India page before so will read your suggestion with no preset ideas and give an opinion one way or another. As it is a bit of a stalemate on the talk page so this will get others involved and allow you to get more comments. I appreciate that I dont agree with your suggestion but that doesnt mean you dont have the right to gain more views, if you have any questions then please ask on this page and I will try and help.

Sorry for being harsh[edit]

Hello, I'm sorry if I've been harsh at Talk:India. I had been aware of some conflict over there but had been ignoring it until seeing the "request for comments". My comments over there are meant in the best of faith and encouragement. Also, I just saw on your main user page, "Susu - hope it increases their numbers and reduced pollution, fishing and division into isolated groups because of barrages." That is a sentiment I can wholeheartedly agree with, and was pleased to see. You call the dolphins "Susu"? We don't have dolphins where I live, but there are some Orcas, which are somewhat similar and hugely impressive. There are a huge number of dams where I live, to the great detriment of the aquatic species, mostly salmon. It's a perennial issue here. While I mourn the devastation of the salmon and the natural rivers, I am also pleased that my electricity comes from hydropower rather than coal or nuclear plants. I realize that the Indian barrages are not usually major hydroelectric producers, and if they are harmful to the dolphins that is a shame. Dolphins are so much more intelligent and conscious than salmon! Anyway, just wanted to post here to let you know I don't meant to be overly harsh over at Talk:India--more just trying to be helpful. Pfly (talk) 11:28, 14 May 2011 (UTC)

'Susu' is kind of phonetic. The dolphin comes up to water surface every 30 minutes for breathing and generates such a sound, the locals therefore refer to it so.
Onomatopoeia is probably a better term than phonetic. Cool! Pfly (talk) 12:17, 14 May 2011 (UTC)
What I do understand is that the dolphins live in fresh water, therefore their presence/site is appreciated. The dolphins are therefore somewhat indicative of pure water flow hence some symbolism is involved. As the dams reduce the flow of water and decrease passive capacity of water to take pollution away to the sea, not to mention cut away path of migrations etc. As it is, every time there are talks of building hydro power plants on Ganga, there is this issue of migratory species being affected. There is a lot of money involved and so the issue effectively also is delicately poised against dwindling population of the dolphins. As social mammal(social animal have much better chance of surviving in society and comparatively little chance alone), there are a lot of efforts made to increase their numbers; but as mentioned there are some natural issues(low birth rate) and some man made(catching for oil etc., barrages) that are coming in the way big time. As it is, dolphins are extremely friendly and intelligent, though Ganga dolphin has diminished eye sight(as eyesight is not needed in muddy waters), has evolved to live entirely on sound reflections(echo) & does not respond to sight of tourists etc. I appreciate your concern about the dolphins.
On a side note, I was wondering if a dam could be constructed a little away from water flow so that the normal flow is not obstructed, etc. but that is just me talking loud.
I do envy you your dolphins. We have similar issues here, but focused on salmon. Salmon are a hugely important historical thing here, but if it was dolphins I imagine there would be little opposition to all-out preservation efforts. I have a hard time imaging fresh water dolphins, as I've never seen any. The closest I've come is the salt water orcas around here, which are clearly quite different.
Well, I guess Ganga dolphins have evolved in such manner. In India, dolphin preservation would indeed be slow. It is a rare species and it is sadly not able to stand up in these times. ..असक्तः सततं कार्य कर्म समाचर | असक्तः हि आचरन् कर्म.. Humour Thisthat2011 12:59, 14 May 2011 (UTC)
Also, it looks like you are fluent to some degree in Sanskrit. That is one of the few connections I have with India. A good friend of mine in college took courses in Sanskrit, and through her I acquired a great appreciation, and gained a huge fascination with the language. If you are fluent in it, or at least can read it, I envy you. Pfly (talk) 11:34, 14 May 2011 (UTC)
I am not too fluent in Sanskrit, but Sanskrit is easy because it is phonetic. In India, people learn Hindi and therefore know how to read Sanskrit words as Hindi and Sanskrit follow the same script. Also, most of the languages in India, including Sanskrit, are all phonetic - so you write what you speak which helps a lot in education. The communication becomes then mostly about ideas and not pronunciations(the entire pronunciations of Sanskrit can be explained as combination of parts in brief, for example Sanskrit#Phonology section). I am no scholar in Sanskrit at all, but it grammar is very logical, and so people tend to understand the structure well. A lot of Hindu literature is written in Sanskrit, and other Indian languages. ..असक्तः सततं कार्य कर्म समाचर | असक्तः हि आचरन् कर्म.. Humour Thisthat2011 12:13, 14 May 2011 (UTC)
This makes me think of the place of Latin among European languages. Latin is likewise phonetic, at leat in its classical form. For those who know French, Spanish, and especially Italian, Latin is not too hard to decipher. I've often heard Latin and Sanskrit compared, but wow it is hard for a European-American to learn Sanskrit! The alphabet/syllabarary (whatever it ought to be called) is hard enough! The main thing I recall being hard for my friend to learn about Sanskrit was the ligatures. ...good night. Pfly (talk) 12:31, 14 May 2011 (UTC)
To learn Sanskrit, one has to understand phonetic groups. For example - ta tha da dha na - these five consonants are spoken in mutually similar phonetic manner and therefore grouped together; or another example - pa pha ba bha ma - these five consonants are grouped together similarly. In all there are 7 such consonant groups, and 14 vowels - each with individual phonetic. That's a good start! ..असक्तः सततं कार्य कर्म समाचर | असक्तः हि आचरन् कर्म..

Canvassing[edit]

Just a note, that asking other users on talk pages to participate in a discussion such as you did here is frowned upon, and can often be seen as WP:CANVASSING. If you do feel the need to notify other editors about the conversation, it is best to say you have done so on the talkpage where the conversation is happening. Cheers, Chipmunkdavis (talk) 14:03, 15 May 2011 (UTC)

I guess thats called Consensus, with different facets like Consensus building and blocking etc. (See also See also).
Note the part there Soliciting opinions, which is not WP:CANVASSING. Everyone does some WP:CANVASSING to an extent, for example by user MikeLynch; and I don't see anyone warning that guy now, can you? ..असक्तः सततं कार्य कर्म समाचर | असक्तः हि आचरन् कर्म..

Copypaste and likely copyvio[edit]

You have copied and pasted substantial portions of the article Maratha War of Independence from the (Hindu nationalist) web site voi.org. I have tagged the article with a copypaste template, which means that what you have done might be a violation of copyright laws and, therefore, against Wikipedia policy. If you have done the same on other Wikipedia pages, please voluntarily revert your edits and begin afresh by paraphrasing the content in accordance with Wikipedia rules. Fowler&fowler«Talk» 09:19, 19 May 2011 (UTC)

Hi, the source links are given in the reference section of the page. more about the author here from a blog on Wall Street Journal, as he is a blogger of some repute I take. Though it is not from a book so I have removed anything other than chronological aspect. ..असक्तः सततं कार्य कर्म समाचर | असक्तः हि आचरन् कर्म.. Humour Thisthat2011 04:43, 20 May 2011 (UTC)
Referencing does not greatly affect Copyvio. You can never copy the text from another source, as that would be plagiarism. Chipmunkdavis (talk) 05:52, 20 May 2011 (UTC)
The text was correctly removed. Thisthat, please see WP:COPYPASTE which gives guidance on copying text from one website and pasting it into Wikipedia.

India i.e Bharat[edit]

Hi ThisThat! I have seen your posts on the talk page of the article on India and really appreciate the fact the you are trying to contribute seriously. However, it seems that the discussion has become a bit dragging of late. A look at the discussion gives me an impression that there's, at this point at least, not much support for the changes that you are proposing in the naming. I would like to therefore request you that you step back for a while and contribute to other articles. May be you can revisit this after a considerable time has elapsed and gauge the opinion pattern then. Thanks. Shovon (talk) 09:53, 19 May 2011 (UTC)

I hope as a responsible admin, you have also warned others who just maintain that 'Bharat is not an English name of India' and keep disrupting the discussion even when the discussion itself if going on, thus starting and ending with the same assumptions without considering the entire discussion in between. ..असक्तः सततं कार्य कर्म समाचर | असक्तः हि आचरन् कर्म.. Humour Thisthat2011 06:05, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

Warning[edit]

Just to repeat the warnings that you have had already for disruptive behaviour, it was suggested that you try a request for comment. It is clear from the comments that nobody supports a change to the lead so it is really time to leave this alone. Shovon76 makes a good suggestion that you use your enthusiasm and knowledge and concentrate on other subjects. If you keep repeating the same comments again and again we may not have any choice but to stop you editing for a while as it is clearly disruptive to the project. I would rather that you do other work but note after all the warnings that you have had here and on the Talk:India page you may not get another warning. Please consider. MilborneOne (talk) 11:53, 19 May 2011 (UTC)

I hope as a responsible admin, you have also warned others who just maintain that 'Bharat is not an English name of India' and keep disrupting the discussion repetitively -and therefore inviting repeated rebuttals - even when the discussion itself is going on, thus starting and ending with the same assumptions without considering the entire discussion in between. ..असक्तः सततं कार्य कर्म समाचर | असक्तः हि आचरन् कर्म..

Shiva[edit]

"Wikipedia policy (WP:IG) discourages galleries of random images of the article subject". --Redtigerxyz Talk 16:23, 2 June 2011 (UTC)

I think the gallery here is well-marked with information and links to pages needed. If some images look out of the labels, please point out which ones. ..असक्तः सततं कार्य कर्म समाचर | असक्तः हि आचरन् कर्म.. Humour Thisthat2011 16:28, 2 June 2011 (UTC)

"Images are typically interspersed individually throughout an article near the relevant text (see WP:MOSIMAGES). However, the use of a gallery section may be appropriate in some Wikipedia articles if a collection of images can illustrate aspects of a subject that cannot be easily or adequately described by text or individual images. The images in the gallery collectively must have encyclopedic value and add to the reader's understanding of the subject. Images in a gallery should be suitably captioned to explain their relevance both to the article subject and to the theme of the gallery, and the gallery should be appropriately titled (unless the theme of the gallery is clear from the context of the article). Images in a gallery should be carefully selected, avoiding similar or repetitive images, unless a point of contrast or comparison is being made."
We already have individual images of Gangadhara, with Parvati, Ardhanarishvara, as Yogishvara. There are several other aspects of Shiva (at least 108 iconographical ones in South India); all of which can not be listed and/or illustrated in the article, only some prominent depictions are enough.
"Wikipedia is not an image repository. A gallery is not a tool to shoehorn images into an article, and a gallery consisting of an indiscriminate collection of images of the article subject should generally either be improved in accordance with the above paragraph or moved to Wikimedia Commons." --Redtigerxyz Talk 18:59, 2 June 2011 (UTC)
Well the thing is that it is a bit untidy to present all pictures in articles, where there may not be sufficient place and it would clutter the page presentation. I assumed that a well-labeled gallery could put more pics just so as to reinforce meaning, generality and give some specific information per picture - thereby balancing general v/s specific difference to an extent.
As it is, I agree that it is not possible to present all forms but just a few. Though that should not prevent from making a good start and hopefully the gallery will become more exhaustive.
My 2 paise. ..असक्तः सततं कार्य कर्म समाचर | असक्तः हि आचरन् कर्म.. Humour Thisthat2011 21:16, 2 June 2011 (UTC)
Ya. It is fine to create gallery on commons and link it from the wikipedia temple. Galleries can be used in wikipedia but they should be small and used to illustrate specific features of the subject. Multiple galleries in each relevant section can be used in Hindu temple architecture to illustrate specific features of Hindu temple architecture, but a huge gallery at the end has no meaning. See Taj Mahal where the policy of gallery is followed in spirit IMO. --Redtigerxyz Talk 06:28, 4 June 2011 (UTC)

I have rearranged the text and reordered the references as per the prescribed format. Picasso pictorial url is shifted to external links and referencing each Picasso picture to the main text is not allowed in the text part. Please ensure that in your future articles the reference format is strictly followed or otherwise the article would be rejected on the DYK. Also, use this format [4] for referencing of google books. Can you think of an interesting hook which is duly referenced for nomination on the DYK? If you can manage a picture with free license attribution, it will add to the get up of the article. Also, pl record your observations on my talk page.--Nvvchar. 01:36, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

You cannot add to the DYK Que page. It is done only by the administrator after it is approved on the suggestion page by reviewers. You have to first add your article on the suggestion page under the date that you have created the article. It should be fully referenced, evry paragraph and also figures. The text for the hook in the article should also be definitely referenced in the main text only or otherwise it would be rejected. The length of the text should be more than 1600 ch without references, headings and Infobox. If an Infobox is added, it;'/ will add to the value of the article. Use minimum of images and be brief in writing the text for the same. Instructions for posting on the page are given at the head of the Suggestion Page. Please read it carefully before posting.

Thought you might be interested... p. williams is a non RS for an article on Hinduism. His field is buddhism. he has not written any peer reviewed book on Hinduism which has been published by a university press. Actually, he has not even written any books on Hinduism, as such, he is a non RS for the article. Hinduism is not his field. It is not his field of expertise. In this situation, how can he be construed to be an RS on Hinduism. The book on "buddhist thought" is also totally off-topic for the article. It is about Buddhism, not about Hinduism. as such, the book is also non-RS. Looking into WP:RS and WP:V, it would be easy to show two dozen different reasons why this citation is worthless. But, these two points would be sufficient to nuke the p.w. citation. it is likely that "brainy" christian POV eds who are only around to create mischief will refuse to accept these points. In that situation, don't argue with them and post the question "Is p.w. an RS for some point related to Hinduism" on WP:RSN. You should get the desired answer. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 117.198.57.226 (talk) 16:52, 14 June 2011 (UTC)

Maratha War of Independence[edit]

Hi,

Your edits to the above page have been revision deleted (selectively deleted) which is why you can't view them in the history. This action was carried out by MLauba, an administrator (per criteria 1 of the revision delete policy) . I reverted your additions to the page as copyright violations as they appeared to be copy and pasted from Voice of India pdf's as I detailed on the talk page, which I see you have read as you replied there. I apologise for not notifying you of my revert of your edits on your talk page as that is something I normally do and I must have overlooked it.

I assume you are following the procedure here to gain permission to use this text in this article. If you get permission to use the text then the deleted edits can be restored so there will be no need to re-type them. (Please note this won't help with any POV concerns other editors may have raised.) Hope this helps, regards, ascidian | talk-to-me 05:41, 17 June 2011 (UTC)

There is currently a discussion at Wikipedia:Dispute resolution noticeboardThigle (talk) 03:44, 22 June 2011 (UTC)

A brief review of your edits show ownership issues, edit-warring, issues with canvassing, and a massive misunderstanding of reliable sourcing. Added together, this is becoming significantly disruptive. I really recommend that you begin to edit in a far more collegial and non-tendentious manner. (talk→ BWilkins ←track) 11:44, 22 June 2011 (UTC)
ThisThat2011, I noticed at the DRN that some users were unduly talking against you only because they did not seem to know about Thigle's editing habits. He is shouting all the time and even brags about it and his sense of sourcing policy is zero. And he is also adamantly unwilling to move forward from zero. I recommend that you delete most of the content of this talk page. There's nothing which stops you from doing that.-117.198.54.181 (talk) 02:49, 23 June 2011 (UTC)
I'd suggest Thisthat2011 not do as the IP says; of course, there is nothing stopping you from doing that. But then, users doing so (esp removing warnings, notices etc) are not held in high regard.

I have reworded the whole paragraphs so as to explain meaning but not contents. Therefore these are not copyvios at all. Example: [1], etc. These are reverted without even looking at them. ..असक्तः सततं कार्य कर्म समाचर | असक्तः हि आचरन् कर्म.. Humour Thisthat2011 10:22, 26 June 2011 (UTC)
I'm sure he did look at them. I would have reverted also, the material is still substantially the same. See Wikipedia:Close paraphrasing. If you don't stop I'll have to block you for copyright violations. Dougweller (talk) 10:35, 26 June 2011 (UTC)
Ok, I am not sure how do I contribute to this other than rewording the whole substance, which is what I understand as not amounting to copyright violation.
Let me know how I can contribute, for everything I am doing is reverted in a way it is not even observable. For example, the B.B.C. controversies page, I can not link the edits I did since its history for the said pages is not even visible. In such a case, it is difficult even to understand how my edits today, i.e. rephrasing etc. and removing anything that looks like copyvio and thus contributing to is anything else. Please let me know how to go about it. ..असक्तः सततं कार्य कर्म समाचर | असक्तः हि आचरन् कर्म.. Humour Thisthat2011 10:41, 26 June 2011 (UTC)
ThisThat2011, many editors (even experienced ones) have difficulty understanding what is copyvio, and how close paraphrasing is also a copyvio. That close paraphrasing constitutes a copyvio is correct and it is a serious problem for Wikipedia. Please do not reinsert anything unless you are sure that it is not a copyvio. I am the IP and have decided to register now. Let those edits be reverted. There is no harm in having them reverted. Actually it is necessary and opposing it is of no use. It will only complicate matters further. Even if you think something is important, and needs to be stated in the article, it needs to be reworded substantially or completely. Before reinserting anything, please wait for some time so that you can get a hang of it. Trying to rush things is not good.-MangoWong (talk) 12:19, 26 June 2011 (UTC)
  • You have had sufficient warnings not to restore copyvios, and yet you are doing just that, again, now on Kashmir. —SpacemanSpiff 12:14, 10 July 2011 (UTC)
The matter was deleted, after copyvio edits and has nothing to do with copyvio.
The material is not of my own writing, and both copies of the same were deleted instead of keeping one. Hence I have restored one copy. It has nothing to do with copyvio. ..असक्तः सततं कार्य कर्म समाचर | असक्तः हि आचरन् कर्म.. Humour Thisthat2011
Seriously, if you don't understand why copyvios are removed and shouldn't be restored, you shouldn't be editing here. It doesn't matter if you wrote the original text or someone else wrote it, you can not restore such content. Please stop this. —SpacemanSpiff 12:20, 10 July 2011 (UTC)
SpacemanSpiff, it is obvious that ThisThat2011 does not understand what is a copyvio. Instead of asking him to stop editing, the difficulty can be solved by explaining what is a copyvio. Earlier on, he had asked for an explanation as to where he is wrong so that he could avoid repeating the mistake. The issue has not been explained adequately to him. Please let me try to explain my understanding of what is a copyvio. ThisThat2011, the problem is not that you are not using your own wording. The problem is that you are not using your own wording. When you use a source, you can only use them to gather some information. But you cannot use their wording. You must restate the same thing in your own , completely new words, to avoid doing a copyvio. You are not doing that and that is the problem.--MangoWong (talk) 13:05, 10 July 2011 (UTC)
Wow, I signed into Wikipedia in April. This is the first time someone is explaining this with some clarity, after hundreds of edits.
Thank you very much. Amongst very many people on Wikipedia, you are amongst the rare few who just don't give warnings on user pages, open up issues on various complaint pages and move on without clarifying; but actually go on to explain the correct manner with clarity.
I wish such a behavior is replicated by others(a list can be prepared from my talk-page itself), who waste their and others' time to just throw warnings and start a demeaning discussion, and presented to newbies on signing up. I am sure it will quicken content add on Wikipedia and avoid unnecessary behaviors and time wastes. ..असक्तः सततं कार्य कर्म समाचर | असक्तः हि आचरन् कर्म.. Humour Thisthat2011 14:29, 10 July 2011 (UTC)
I like MangoWong's approach. This sort of an approach is much needed on India related articles where the article quality is not that great. Keep up the good work ThisThat2011. Just ask questions at the various boards/forums when you have any doubts. WT:IN is one forum you can use for India related questions. Flexing administrative muscles does not help the encyclopedia. Zuggernaut (talk) 16:11, 10 July 2011 (UTC)
Actually, the problem is that not too many users seem to understand this point (about copyvio). The ones who do, seem to assume that others already know this. This is why they ignore explaining it. Communicating through the net, as we do, can often lead to miscommunication. I know numerous users who are willing to explain things. So, ignoring to explain is generally simply due to a failure to gauge the situation. It should not be taken otherwise.--MangoWong (talk) 16:07, 10 July 2011 (UTC)
That may be true with some editors who have never had a menu of links in a Welcome notice, or had warnings with links to very clear, polite policy statements that very clearly state what is and what is not a copyright violation. However, I would put down quite a few dollars that even when provided those links, Thisthat2011 has never once followed the link to understand. This project can only push so much information/policy ... the editor is absolutely required to pull a little information every now and then. When you signed up, you agreed to it.

Kurmis sources[edit]

Hi the sources that you have just added to the History section at Kurmi need page numbers. No-one can verify the statements easily without those. Also, you may want to read WP:REFPUNCT. Sorry about the earlier revert: I'm struggling with some sockpuppets at the moment and got my articles confused. - Sitush (talk) 20:39, 11 July 2011 (UTC)

Which sources need page numbers? I have given sources that will lead to the matter under consideration directly which can be viewed on the internet. No need to give page numbers. ..असक्तः सततं कार्य कर्म समाचर | असक्तः हि आचरन् कर्म.. Humour Thisthat2011 20:41, 11 July 2011 (UTC)


Reliable sources[edit]

I have gone through the list of reliable sources, and I don't see any grounds on which Joshua Project can be termed as an unreliable source. I need more reasons and specific details as to why this source is not reliable. Please provide. (07:44, 12 July 2011 (UTC)) — Preceding unsigned comment added by TomPaul67 (talkcontribs)

I don't know how it is. ..असक्तः सततं कार्य कर्म समाचर | असक्तः हि आचरन् कर्म.. Humour Thisthat2011 07:46, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
I have provided the list of endorsements this project has got. Apart from this, this project is affiliated with major world renowned missions. Now I don't see any reasons why not to believe this source. I am being proved to prove the validity of a source. This is beyond me. How can I prove that I myself am a reliable source? Can you do so for your self. Can you prove that you are who you are? How? If everyone else seems to believe (just remember that these are authorities on this topic) that a particular source is valid, then it has to be valid. This is like asking me to prove that Sun rises from the East. Well it does. It's there for everyone to see. I am getting tired by this circular argumentation that I have to prove the authenticity of my sources. TomPaul67 (talk) 08:00, 12 July 2011 (UTC)

Well, thanks for your constructive feedback. TomPaul67 (talk) 08:00, 12 July 2011 (UTC)

Also, I would like to question the authenticity of the material that has been posted on Wiki about Kurmis. I can see numerous sources that seem to declare that Kurmis are Kshtriyas, then how come what a handful of sources say is believed. Not the other way round. Furthermore, if the term Shudras is debatable and is being contested, then why can't we remove this term till the dispute is resolved.

It has been nice interacting with folks on Wiki, and now I think my argumentation has improved a lot. TomPaul67 (talk) 08:03, 12 July 2011 (UTC)

There are many other websites, many from Kurmis too that says a lot. Yet it is unsure how reliable these websites are. ..असक्तः सततं कार्य कर्म समाचर | असक्तः हि आचरन् कर्म.. Humour Thisthat2011 08:23, 12 July 2011 (UTC)

General warning regarding disruption[edit]

I would advise you to consider User_talk:Thisthat2011#Warning as you are well into the same "repetitive comment" territory at Talk:Kurmi and it is becoming a dreadful waste of everyone's time. It is disruptive, you are being tendentious and you could be blocked. Drop the bone, please. - Sitush (talk) 19:43, 12 July 2011 (UTC)

Please avoid making unsubstituted synthesis of "swaying" authorities is not recognition logic and then put warnings on others pages.

Disruptive editing at Kurmi - 2nd warning[edit]

Please stop your disruptive editing on Talk:Kurmi, as you were warned earlier today and, for other articles, at least twice in the past couple of months. It is too much. This is your second warning. Persist in this tendentiousness and you could find yourself blocked from editing.

If you are still unhappy with what has been said on that talk page then you will have to adopt an alternative process for resolution, as referred to in the link given above. - Sitush (talk) 19:59, 12 July 2011 (UTC)

Your unhelpful stance[edit]

Since you have refused to actually read what I say, or to read the actual sources, I'm not going to communicate with you until the issue at Kurmi is straightened out, either by your actually reading sources, or by getting some neutral person onto the page to explain to you what you're doing wrong, as it appears the copious descriptions of your issues on your Talk page have yet to make an impression on you. You are taking up far too much of my (and others') time at Kurmi. MatthewVanitas

MatthewVanitas, although I do not claim to be neutral, I wonder if you have any real familiarity with this subject. The article is asserting that Kurmis are a Shudra jati in India. Fact is, nobody in India is a Shudra. Do you know that it is illegal in India to describe anyone as a "Shudra"? That "Shudra" has become a taboo word in India? If Kurmis are a "Shudra" jati in India, show me one Kurmi who claims to be a "Shudra" or one Indian who asserts that Kurmis are "Shudras". Maybe the rest of the world thinks that Kurmis are Shudras, but not Indians. As far as India and Indians are concerned, nobody is a Shudra.-MangoWong (talk) 01:39, 13 July 2011 (UTC)
@MatthewVanitas I am yet to get a reply from you about your assertions of 'swaying' authority logic(this edit), which is just an assumption from your part.

Re:Police Reforms[edit]

Hi I think topic like police reforms is not much of academic value or interesting as such for encyclopedic reference.

Regarding User talk:Sitush#Warning on term Shudra .26 repeated insistance on keeping it on prominant places in articles on Hindu communities[edit]

Hello Thisthat2011, please note that your behaviour on Sitush's talk page borders on a legal threat. I know you've not threatened to take action, but your action might have the very same chilling effect an over legal threat might have. Please, abide by Wikipedia's policies regarding neutrality and, above all, verifiability, remembering that Indian statutes do not apply to Wikipedia, since its servers are located in the US and that it would be really hard to try and prosecute someone living abroad in an Indian Court. That said, also please do not post on someone's talk page when asked not to. Please note that, as far as I'm concerned, this is your final warning regarding your disruptive editing. Salvio Let's talk about it! 10:22, 14 July 2011 (UTC)

Have you reviewed the Kurmi talk page?-MangoWong (talk) 12:26, 14 July 2011 (UTC)
I really should not get involved here but I would like to offer an apology for my tone towards TT2011 on my talk page yesterday. I saw a legal threat and then TT2011 scrambled around to get out of a hole. This pattern of behaviour is something that I have previously called "sly" - he did a similar thing on the India project talk page not long before, saying one thing and then coming back to sort of retract it. It is planting an idea in the heads of other people & then using a get-out clause. Nonetheless, I regret some my tone in my responses to him on my talk page regarding the apparent threat, although not elsewhere. Sorry.
I would still rather that TT2011 kept away from it unless there is a procedural point to be made. I shall be glad to do the same in reverse. - Sitush (talk) 12:36, 14 July 2011 (UTC)
By the way, lets cut this routine of 'legal threat' off. The statements 'edits bordered on legal threat' and 'Indian laws don't apply to Wikipedia' are contradictory. As also I have clarified the matter was about legalities in India, not a threat. ..असक्तः सततं कार्य कर्म समाचर | असक्तः हि आचरन् कर्म.. Humour Thisthat2011 16:34, 14 July 2011 (UTC)
Sly? You think trying to blackball other eds when you have a dispute, thereby avoiding to discuss the issue itself is "not sly"?-MangoWong (talk) 13:17, 14 July 2011 (UTC)
Nobody is "blackballing" anyone, there are very serious and legitimate concerns about TT2011's pattern of editing; a glance at his page shows how disruptive he's been over just three months. Sitush is clearly not trying to "avoid" the issue, as you can clearly see at Talk:Kurmi. TT2011 has barreled into the discussion there, and caused a massive dragged-out argument almost entirely redundant to the already massive discussion page, and if you read carefully you'll note that a goodly chunk of our posts are "TT2011, did you actually read" over and over again, because he simply keeps posting while ignoring people's attempts to discuss things with him. He refuses to collaborate, and tirelessly sprawls repetitive and circular complaints across dozens of pages. That is why people are displeased with TT, not because of "disagreement". MatthewVanitas (talk) 15:13, 14 July 2011 (UTC)
@MatthewVanitas go away from my page please excuse my page off your attention. You appear to be unbalanced and want to make suggestive judgements/consider/no-consider decisions from reliable sources. This behavior is not seen by even the authors of those sources themselves.
So get off my page. You are not welcome. Your views are not welcome. ..असक्तः सततं कार्य कर्म समाचर | असक्तः हि आचरन् कर्म.. Humour Thisthat2011 15:24, 14 July 2011 (UTC)

This is how you strike out, I am sharing it with you as I had once forgotten how to.Yogesh Khandke (talk) 15:37, 14 July 2011 (UTC)
Please read Salvio's comment above - "please do not post on someone's talk page when asked not to".
It is indeed awkward for me to find that someone who calls Hindu Jatis as Shudra comes to my talk and gives tough talk against me without even acknowledging that Shudra can be derogatory, as pointed out explicitly, & so are his edits. I don't want such a person talking on my page.
As far as my not owning it is considered, I can not help it. The dude will keep writing on my talk page regardless, which I think is fine. Nothing wrong in it.
I am not mean, I can not welcome such views. ..असक्तः सततं कार्य कर्म समाचर | असक्तः हि आचरन् कर्म.. Humour Thisthat2011 15:50, 14 July 2011 (UTC)
Furthermore, I do not want MatthewVanitas & Sitush to be banned etc. it is not an option for me, if it is for them.
I think by now, it is good enough to acknowledge that there is systemic bias and there is no point keep on banning multitude of users when there is a systemic bias. No one is perfect, not even historians. ..असक्तः सततं कार्य कर्म समाचर | असक्तः हि आचरन् कर्म.. Humour Thisthat2011 15:54, 14 July 2011 (UTC)
Everyone please calm down a bit and take a break. There is no hurry. Wikipedia is not going anywhere-MangoWong (talk) 16:03, 14 July 2011 (UTC)
Regardless of whatever Salvio may say, it is wrong to give anyone a "go away". Regardless of whether one agrees or disagrees with what others say, fellow eds should be treated with a fair degree of respect. I know Sitush has given ThisThat2011 a "go away". But both "go away"s are equally wrong. I hope this "go away" thing will be discontinued.
MatthewVanitas, reviewing the Kurmi talk page, the one thing which I found to be repetative there was----ed after ed objecting to the use of the word "Shudra". Another repetative thing was that you and Sitush were rejecting all objections. Please begin to consider the possibility that others may have a valid point.-MangoWong (talk) 16:15, 14 July 2011 (UTC)
Savio is an admin, he has the power to block.Yogesh Khandke (talk) 17:38, 14 July 2011 (UTC)
I know Salvio is an admin. I stand by my comment that it is wrong to say "go away", regardless of his power to block.-MangoWong (talk) 05:57, 15 July 2011 (UTC)
Repeatedly posting on someone else's talk page after being asked not to can be construed as WP:HARASSMENT. Granted, if you post a message on Sitush's talk page, I'm not going to block you, unless there is a pattern of behaviour which may justify a claim of harassment. In general, to comply with a request to avoid posting on someone else's talk page is a matter of courtesy.

The real point of my message, however, was that you should strive to avoid every action that might have a chilling effect on your fellow users, because Wikipedia works by consensus and every practice which may interfere with it, if repeated, can be grounds for a block; you were not technically making legal threats, which I recognised from the very beginning, but that doesn't mean that your actions did not possibly have such chilling effect. Salvio Let's talk about it! 15:56, 15 July 2011 (UTC)

I posted no more than twice after Sitush asked me to.
As about chilling effect, I understand what do you want to convey. Though I would like to inquire about any knowledge of this 'chilling' effect about deprecated word like 'nigreo' on page like African American, and whether anyone opposing it is 'chilled' by any mention of laws of USA. I understand that Wikipedia adheres to laws of USA, and therefore the matter is systemic. ..असक्तः सततं कार्य कर्म समाचर | असक्तः हि आचरन् कर्म.. Humour Thisthat2011 16:37, 15 July 2011 (UTC)
There are contradictions here. @Savio should see that he enforces standards across, not just to one side. It is effectively taking sides. Otherwise, if Savio is correct, I have cancelled lines anyway and given my views.
I hope Savio clarifies his stand too, on why he has not given such warning to User:Sitush, in case I was given a 'final warning' for commenting on a page when asked not to. I would rather have this cleared up today then let users like Sitush/MV getting penalized fairly, or letting off the hook unfairly, by the same standards tomorrow, making this look like a systemic bias. ..असक्तः सततं कार्य कर्म समाचर | असक्तः हि आचरन् कर्म.. Humour Thisthat2011 06:36, 15 July 2011 (UTC)
My perception of the issue is that Sitush and MatthewVanitas are stubbornly and unfairly insisting on continuing to use the word "Shudra". By their lack of discretion and stubborn behavior, they are leading this project, (not themselves), into unnecessary trouble. The "go away" thing is a side issue and should be dropped as such.-MangoWong (talk) 07:47, 15 July 2011 (UTC)
I am fine with the idea if its dropped across. ..असक्तः सततं कार्य कर्म समाचर | असक्तः हि आचरन् कर्म.. Humour Thisthat2011 08:36, 15 July 2011 (UTC)
A few notes: 1) Wikipedia strives for articles that are written neutrally, and make the most use of WP:CONSENSUS. 2) You are totally within your right to ask someone to "go away" from your talkpage - it's not considered polite, and they do not have to 100% listen to that request, but you can ask that. 3) To call them "unbalanced" would, however, be a violation of WP:NPA. 4) Discussions on specific topics should be located on the talkpage of the article itself so that multiple people can comment, thus leading to consensus. Don't go making wide sweeping changes ... this project is a marathon and not a sprint. (talk→ BWilkins ←track) 16:54, 15 July 2011 (UTC)
Could you also put this discussion on User:Sitush page? It is only a suggestion, not a request, just pointing out something similar. ..असक्तः सततं कार्य कर्म समाचर | असक्तः हि आचरन् कर्म.. Humour Thisthat2011 17:12, 15 July 2011 (UTC)
I'll save someone some work. No need to put it on my page. I have been following it. I stand by what I did and why I did it, which was a consequence of a legal threat. It was seen by admins etc. However, I did apologise, without being prompted, some time ago for the tone in which I did it. I shall now retire once more. - Sitush (talk) 17:17, 15 July 2011 (UTC)
Saving work of someone who could say something unconvinient is convenient. I am fine with it. I guess some people are paranoid about warnings, but I may be biased.
There is a violation of some standard, technically so, because of a perceived 'legal threat' as pointed out again, which is not technically a legal threat, is amusing to me. Something similar happened on my page, i.e. warning of ban etc. but when I said get off my page to MV, I cancelled it out later too. Being polite is not someone's exclusive ownership and everyone's ownership. ..असक्तः सततं कार्य कर्म समाचर | असक्तः हि आचरन् कर्म.. Humour Thisthat2011 17:26, 15 July 2011 (UTC)

Hello Thisthat2011, with this edit, in enacting a consensus of the community reached at the Administrator's Noticeboard, which may be viewed at [6], I hereby inform you that you are banned from making any India-related edits across all namespaces for three weeks.

Thanks for the mail. By what standards you are 'sorry'? I am full of enthusiasm with the ban, no doubts/questions.

Your return[edit]

Hello and welcome back to contributing here. It had been hoped by some who contributed at the recent ANI discussion that you would take the duration of the topic ban as an opportunity to become involved in areas of Wikipedia other than those related to India. It is clear that you chose not to do this, which is a course of action that is entirely within your rights but perhaps was not the cleverest of decisions.

Anyway, leaving that aside you have returned to contributing in the India-related sphere and are already displaying signs of tendentiousness. At Talk:2008 Mumbai attacks you have unnecessarily re-visited a discussion regarding the article title which had closed during your absence. Although much of your input is very garbled, your choice of words here could be construed as yet another personal attack. Especially, "Please keep your filth in your mind before vomiting it out. It stinks.". Please be careful because you will recall that the recent topic ban could be extended considerably, up to and including a total ban from English Wikipedia - WP:ROPE was mentioned and you should probably take heed of this. Best wishes. - Sitush (talk) 01:16, 25 August 2011 (UTC)

"you have unnecessarily re-visited a discussion regarding the article title which had closed during your absence."
Read the mail again. I have clarified why I have said so. It is not unnecessary, especially when the editor is asking arbitrary questions in my absence. You have disregarded that he had asked some jumbled up question in my absence and then you have concluded that my mail was unnecessary.
Why have you overlooked that he asked a very personal question in the first place? Please desist on presenting half-truths. If you want to discuss this, goto talk page, don't mess up people's talk pages, while you yourself are touchy about your own talk page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Thisthat2011/Archive_1#Regarding_User_talk:Sitush.23Warning_on_term_Shudra_.26_repeated_insistance_on_keeping_it_on_prominant_places_in_articles_on_Hindu_communities.

Ok, since it seems that you have not understood what I said, the reason why I said it here is because it is a warning of sorts. The correct place for warnings, be they by use of templates or otherwise, is the user's talk page. Your comment about filth/vomit/stinks seems excessive to me. There are other ways in which you could have worded your disagreement. Or you could have just ignored what you appear to think was baiting, which may have been a sensible option given the thin-ness of the ice upon which you are currently treading. I will say no more because this thread has been referred to Salvio & doubtless you'll get some input from them. If I am wrong then I am wrong and will apologise. - Sitush (talk) 07:14, 25 August 2011 (UTC)
I understand that the user is experienced, though this time he has gone on an ego trip according to me. He has connected a few random things during an ongoing vote-discussion to make a point and pre-judged that a title including "terrorist" in title is non-neutral. I agree that it could be non-neutral as per his own understanding, but he should desist from assuming his views as already-divisive and then pre-judging others and connecting saffron attacks and then asking 'how do you feel', and then agains pre-judging my response, and so on. The user should take a chill pill and stop this pre-judging circus when in this 'community where I have to rebuild trust' it is the others like me who have to pay for his overt already-assumed-self-connectedness during an ongoing vote.
By the way, have you warned him for his ongoing personal attacks against me?इति इतिUAनॆति नॆति Humour Thisthat2011 07:24, 25 August 2011 (UTC)

Topic ban[edit]

Per the community discussion at WP:ANI, the following restriction on your edits is enacted;

  • You are topic banned from all Indian, Religion, and Hinduism topics, broadly construed and interpreted in all namespaces, including but not limited to mentions of India or Hinduism in any article even if outside the topic area of India, Religion and Hinduism.
  • During this period, a volunteer editor or admin in good standing, with significant experience as an editor and in DR, will mentor and help the user work towards a better editing style, and a more collegial editing behavior. At this mentor's recommendation, and in consultation with the community, the topic ban period can be reduced or extended as seen fit.
  • Any violation of these sanctions can result in any uninvolved admin blocking the user indefinitely.
  • I have informed the volunteer mentors of this sanction. They are User:Nightscream, User:Ebe123, and User:KuduIO.
  • This sanction will expire on March 1, 2012 at 00.00UTC.

Please do not give up on Wikipedia due to the recent topic ban. I can see that you have fallen prey to WP:BAIT which says "In content disputes, a common baiting strategy involves badgering the opposition—while carefully remaining superficially civil—until someone lashes out. They then complain to an administrator." The comment about the Malegaon blasts was uncalled for but l'm sure you'll leave all of that behind you and come back after learning lessons from the recent events. Best wishes!

Your message on my talk page[edit]

I'm completely lost now. Are you referring to my exchange with DavidA? Is Thisthat2011 an alternate account for him (i.e., are you one and the same?) What ban conditions are you referring to? Nightscream (talk) 17:44, 6 December 2011 (UTC)

It is about this edit on your talk page, though there are more comments from user Sitush so I don't know where the conversation stands, much like how unsure I am of the entire ban thing i.e. was I banned for message during a previous ban or for post-ban message to another user, how was it a consensus & so on. Please throw some light on where the discussion heading to at your page here, just want to be sure about not breaking the ban conditions before replying or continuing the discussion, which apparently is gone directionless. Thanks.इति इतिUAनॆति नॆति Humour Thisthat2011 20:50, 7 December 2011 (UTC)
You were topic banned, per the discussion at WP:ANI, from contributing in matters relating to India or Hinduism, broadly construed. That included talk pages etc, not just articles. There is nothing to stop you contributing in other areas, and people had offered to mentor you in that respect. Those people could potentially influence the duration of your topic ban, which at present is indefinite. "Indefinite" does not mean "permanent" but is rather an open-ended thing: it can be reviewed if you show the community that you have the ability to contribute constructively and collegiately. I guess that this pretty much means that either you expand your horizons here in terms of subject matter etc, or else contribute nothing at all.
The consensus was determined at ANI & in my opinion you have absolutely no chance of challenging that without some sort of demonstration of improved ability. The topic ban had nothing to do with any one message but rather related to a general issue with your contributions. By definition, you could not have been banned for a "post-ban message to another user" - that makes no sense. - Sitush (talk) 21:13, 7 December 2011 (UTC)
How did the admin changed the ban to 'indefinite' and what prompted that? When I will have a lot of time, I will inquire with the admin.
About "The consensus was determined at ANI.." well that is I understand is per judgement of the admin though I was banned earlier for a week for the same so how was I banned again after 7 day ban, seems much more confusing now, just like this discussion between me and Nightscream here and at his page!इति इतिUAनॆति नॆति Humour Thisthat2011 21:33, 7 December 2011 (UTC)
Look, the ban is explained here. I think that you were blocked for a while before that, but you were certainly not topic banned. The ban is in place and you are not going to change it by continuing in this vein. In fact, if you do continue like this then someone may decide to escalate it so that you are permanently banned from contributing at all, on the grounds that you are persisting in your obtuse attitude and/or continuing to demonstrate a clear lack of competence. You have one way, and one way only, to resolve the issue ... and you have at least three people who were prepared to assist you. They can, of course, withdraw their offers at any time and you may want to bear that in mind: people only have a finite amount of patience. - Sitush (talk) 21:56, 7 December 2011 (UTC)
I checked my page, here - link, it shows that perhaps the indefinite thing is not present and clearly states "This sanction will expire on March 1, 2012 at 00.00UTC.". Please avoid making personal assumptions before clarity when state that "topic ban, which at present is indefinite". This is why I am confused when you pointed out about indefinite topic ban and also put a message on the admin talk page when there is no indefinite ban. Now I am even more confused.इति इतिUAनॆति नॆति Humour Thisthat2011 22:08, 7 December 2011 (UTC)
It looks like Sitush erred above; your topic ban was enacted for one year, not indefinitely, as recorded in the archived section of ThisThat2011's talk page that you both linked to. This means that as of 1 April 2012, you may again edit articles related to India and Hinduism. The change that Black Kite made was not to the topic ban itself, but to the sanctions that would apply if you violate the topic ban (which is an issue of admin discretion). Should you violate the topic ban (that is, if you should make any edits, on any talk page, article page, Wikipedia space page, etc. related to India or Hinduism, broadly construed before 1 April 2012), then you can be blocked from Wikipedia entirely for any length of time, up to indefinitely. Qwyrxian (talk) 23:28, 7 December 2011 (UTC)
Yes, I did err. Sorry about that. I do feel that the point was to encourage you to contribute here in other spheres & learn from those contributions. Consequent upon that, if you were to resume with your past behaviour after the ban expires then there would not be a prolonged discussion regarding what to do next. You were given quite a lot of rope the first time round. - Sitush (talk) 00:09, 8 December 2011 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────However, I do have a followup question. Above, you say to Zuggernaut, "Anyways, there is some advantage in being anonymous and not get personally involved." Does that mean that you are editing Wikipedia anonymously (as an IP) on topics related to India or Hinduism? Qwyrxian (talk) 23:32, 7 December 2011 (UTC)

This is issue was referred to on Nightscream's talk page at the time. It received no response. - Sitush (talk) 00:09, 8 December 2011 (UTC)
If I am not incorrect, the discussion with Zuggernaut was not about 'editing Wikipedia anonymously (as an IP) on topics related to India or Hinduism'. Please understand the discussion was about, if I recollect well, in Mumbai Wikipedia conference.
So now I am even more confused how this topic, of 'editing Wikipedia anonymously (as an IP) on topics related to India or Hinduism', came into picture. The advantage per me of anonymity is, as I mentioned, I didn't want to get involved personally in the conference, as it is not a mandatory requirement.
To receive no response on Nightscream's talk page, it was not my response that was needed but his. Therefore I inquired if it is okay to respond there without violating ban condition. Even then there is this confusion.
I think I did 1 edit Wikipedia after the ban, on some fish topic. Though this is indeed strange that every time I inquire something, to my mentor not even editing and discussion, it gets confusing. I would rather sit out during the ban than do an uninformed edit that could violate the conditions. Earlier too, when I did make a single edit during a 7 day period, no one pointed it during the ban. So I would rather stay away and not get confused much and then err myself. As an editor during a ban, erring is much more punished rather than a senior editor or an admin erring during other's ban as confusion on part of senior editors or admins can be much more effectively than confusion of an editor. Per Sitush's words & letters - "and you are not going to change it by continuing in this vein. In fact, if you do continue like this then someone may decide to escalate it so that you are permanently banned from contributing at all, on the grounds that you are persisting in your obtuse attitude and/or continuing to demonstrate a clear lack of competence." - so how am I not collegiate and with obtuse attitude and am continuing here in a certain vein, of for that matter a lack of competence? I am not sure how these have come out of nowhere when I was discussing with mentor, not even editing.
I apologize for any confusion from my side and would like to know if it is possible to point out if I am violating any condition as soon as possible during a ban rather than at the end when a single violation could be sent to Wikipedia admin discussion boards for consensus on the violation as soon as the ban is over, as happened earlier.इति इतिUAनॆति नॆति Humour Thisthat2011 06:09, 8 December 2011 (UTC)
In my opinion, almost the worst thing you could do is not take up the mentorship offers. Find something to which you want to contribute and ask your mentors if it would be acceptable to do so. They could then keep an eye on your efforts and provide further guidance, if needed. Although there are exceptions, it seems fairly likely that you'll learn nothing by sitting out the ban and if you then return with a pattern of edits similar to those that caused it to be enacted in the first place then, sorry, but you are likely to end up back at ANI pretty quickly. Doing something in the interval would at least demonstrate a desire to work with the community. Do you contribute to any non-English Wikipedia's? I ask this not because it affects your ban but because I still suspect that English is not your first language and wonder if you might be more comfortable in one of those other environments.
Fish articles, by the way, seem fairly innocuous to me in terms of the ban. Provided that you are not going to be referring to India or, say, their position in relation to Hindu dietary norms. There are lots of articles on that subject, and on things such as gastropods, that really do need some expansion etc, & so they could provide you with a really useful area to add to the sum of Wikipedia's content. But I would still run it past your mentors first, just so that they are aware that you are getting involved again. - Sitush (talk) 08:32, 8 December 2011 (UTC)

About my Ban period[edit]

Hello,

Can any admin reply to my query that I have put forth on the page of admin Black Kite Here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Black_Kite

No replies yet forthcoming.

"Is it expired already?

Last time I asked someone about my ban being over, I got no reply from the editor who banned.

I got to be more cautious this time around. That is why the query."

I would rather not err this time even if no reply is forthcoming from admin. Thanks.इति इतिUAनॆति नॆति Humour Thisthat2011 11:49, 4 March 2012 (UTC)

Hi TT2011, Black Kite appears to be semi-retired from Wikipedia. I fyou do not get an admin response to your request above in, say, the next 24 hours then it might be worthwhile inserting an {{admin help}} template here. The template adds you to a category that should hopefully bring someone over here before too much longer.
I've got to be honest and say that the fact you chose not to edit at all rather than to continue editing but in areas unaffected by your topic ban was probably not the wisest thing to do. People did try to explain this to you at the time. Of course, it is not wrong, but one of the big issues underlying your ban was a high degree of inexperience generally, not merely in contentious topic areas. Editing elsewhere would have gained you a fair bit of experience by now.
Anyway, it's good to know that you are still around etc and hopefully someone better placed than me will respond to your query soon. - Sitush (talk) 15:15, 4 March 2012 (UTC)
I have done an edit here or there, within restrictions of the ban. I already discussed it myself if I remember correctly, though I was last time banned not for editing outside the ban but putting a single comment, not edit on an actual page.
As also, it would weird for example, if someone restarts a vote after some arbitrary accusation say 'saffron terrorism' and not even get a warning. On the other hand reopening a vote after such weird accusation would definitely be shown standards. My experience or inexperience also includes all this.
Good to know that you are still around on Wikipedia, hopefully you have got a little more understanding on India related topics.
I have also put a message to this mentor for his views. Better to wait.इति इतिUAनॆति नॆति Humour Thisthat2011 16:37, 4 March 2012 (UTC)
Sorry, I cannot understand much of your comment - it is a bit garbled- but if you have a mentor and have been interacting with them during the last few months then, yes, they may be able to resolve this issue more quickly than by using the admin help template. - Sitush (talk) 16:41, 4 March 2012 (UTC)
  • Yes, the sanction expired on 1 March. I would, however, be extremely cautious in making edits in the areas from which you were topic banned. Use the talk page if you think an edit might be contentious, and do not edit war in any way; otherwise the sanction may be reapplied. Black Kite (talk) 23:35, 4 March 2012 (UTC)
Yes though is it possible to make an edit after presenting reliable secondary sources? Also, in talk page if other users edit without secondary sources where would I take it up?
Many times I have pointed it out but no admin does anything about it and then all I could do is put up an information message at other editor's talk page that is ignored.
Is there a way in which such standards are to be implemented uniformly?
Inviting mentor also here for his views. User_talk:Nightscream though I don't know how to automatically put a message from here to his user talk page so I will sent a message.इति इतिUAनॆति नॆति Humour Thisthat2011 10:26, 5 March 2012 (UTC)
Also about requesting secondary sources from others as a matter of concern too?इति इतिUAनॆति नॆति Humour Thisthat2011 11:16, 5 March 2012 (UTC)
  • Simply; if you think an edit in those areas is likely to be contentious, use the talkpage first. Black Kite (talk) 23:01, 5 March 2012 (UTC)
Ok, there are more questions I can put forth if convenient. For example are there steps to reopen a closed vote. Last time I got in an ugly discussion because someone talked something about saffron terrorism against my as an arguments for a vote to reopen a closed vote, but no one warned the user for anything, not even an information message. So it leaves to admins to point out steps to reopen a closed vote.इति इतिUAनॆति नॆति Humour Thisthat2011 08:55, 6 March 2012 (UTC)

Also, your feedback on discussion, considering your experience on reliable sources, is welcome. In particular how reliable Christian Today or The Milli Gazette are, if at all.ईती ईतीUAनेती नेती Humour Thisthat2011 19:18, 11 March 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.

Regarding reliable sources[edit]

That would seem to be something that could be gleaned by simply reading that discussion yourself. Since I'm not following that discussion, I have no way of discerning this. Sorry. Nightscream (talk) 21:54, 14 March 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for the tea![edit]

I quite like tea actually. Very much appreciated.--Andrew Lancaster (talk) 14:14, 15 March 2012 (UTC)

Images[edit]

I would recommend you upload them to Wikimedia Commons, then they can be used in Wikipedia projects of all languages. Once you create an account on Commons, it is easy to upload using the upload form here. The step by step procedure is self-explanatory and also gives a link at the end of upload which you can use in a Wikipedia article. Pay attention to copyright status, if the image is copyrighted, you may need to use the OTRS system to show the proof that the owner of the copyright has decided to release under the Creative Commons or the GFDL License. Nmisra (talk) 23:36, 28 March 2012 (UTC)

I am more interested in finding out where the sources of images could be, such as images that are in open domain and can be reused provided license is linked, etc. Right now I am voting against a ban on user, at this ANI thread [| here], see what your views as non-involved editor could be.इति इतिUAनेति नेति Humour Thisthat2011 06:24, 29 March 2012 (UTC)
Flickr often contains licence-compliant images. Every photo there has a licence attached, so you just need to check that it is CC-BY-SA 2.0, CC-BY-SA 3.0 etc rather than, say, All rights reserved. Actually. I frequently see comments from people on Wikipedia where they have emailed the copyright holder of an image on Flickr and persuaded them to change their no-compliant licence so that we could use it!

Old books can also be ok, eg: the John Horsfield article uses a beautiful botanical drawing from a nineteenth-century book. I used a screen capture utility to grab it. What sort of subjects are you trying to find images for? -

I would like to do this well first to understand how this works. However, there are enough topics on India related articles where images would make nice presentation, indeed at places I somehow feel that images are at times needed as complement to the substance under consideration - something along the lines of 'a picture can say a thousand words' etc. that can not be sometimes expressed exhaustively in words, & not just as added appendage.इति इतिUAनेति नेति Humour Thisthat2011 12:35, 29 March 2012 (UTC)

This is your only warning; if you make personal attacks on other people again, as you did at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. Comment on content, not on other contributors or people. -- Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 19:30, 29 March 2012 (UTC)

Please provide references for the said attacks for clarity. It is a request.इति इतिUAनेति नेति Humour Thisthat2011 19:32, 29 March 2012 (UTC)
I have concluded from my side on the vote. I won't be adding anything there unless asked to explicitly.इति इतिUAनेति नेति Humour Thisthat2011 19:44, 29 March 2012 (UTC)
  • Look, we've had interactions before, and I know you can be a valuable contributor and a perfectly reasonable person - I've been in perfectly civil discussions with you before. But you do have a habit of getting angrily personal when you get into disagreements, and you start throwing dirt at your opponents. Those diffs you provided had absolutely nothing to do with Abhijay's comments, and say absolutely nothing about when he might or might not have read the relevant links. If you have a disagreement with his opinion, you are welcome to voice that disagreement, but attacking his competence with allegations that he hasn't looked at it properly is only likely to rebound on you - it makes your argument look weaker, not stronger. I'm sure whoever evaluates the consensus will be aware of the relative involvement and experience of the contributors, and will take that into account. Anyway, I genuinely don't want you to find yourself in trouble, so I hope you'll consider my words. Best regards -- Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 20:06, 29 March 2012 (UTC)
Yes I have WP:AGF by default. I clearly did not understand how the user could understand this discussion at all considering participants etc. I understand that it would be difficult to point out anything of that sort in a manner for which the new user, who is voting on a ban, may object to. Anyway, about throwing mud on others etc is somehow escapes me, especially when there are admins and senior editors involved. About being aggressive, I do not feel I have been aggressive and also I am not avoiding AGF. The whole vote discussion is divided between ANI, talk:India, coupled with the source discussion not getting completed on talk:India and absence of YK himself who is busy these days. Therefore even if I want to put in sourced material, it is likely to be be considered misplaced and then on perhaps tendentious. So I have stopped giving any opinion though I can not help but feel that YK's side is sparsely represented.इति इतिUAनेति नेति Humour Thisthat2011 20:19, 29 March 2012 (UTC)
OK, I understand you didn't mean an attack, and I'm sorry I overreacted a bit - I've struck the warning, above. I can also understand if you feel that YK is being under-represented. But I'm sure whoever judges the consensus (and it will have to be someone uninvolved) will balance things based on policy arguments and the apparent knowledge of the participants.

Recent edit in Adi Shankara![edit]

In your recent edit. I suggest you to add all the Google Books links you have added with exact page link and not search link!--Tito Dutta (Send me a message) 21:58, 29 March 2012 (UTC)

Hello, could you point the difference please? My understanding is that exact page link is more convenient these days, for it allows clear inspection for editors and users.इति इतिUAनेति नेति Humour Thisthat2011 22:03, 29 March 2012 (UTC)
Yes, your understanding is correct! Exact page link is more better, but you have actually added search links. I feel, you have either searched in Google or Google Book search and then copied the link from search result page! But, that actually gives the search link page
To clarify more, when you visit this link you have added, you can easily see your search term in the search box!
So, I feel adding page link is better, though there is only some minor differences between these two! --Tito Dutta (Send me a message) 22:10, 29 March 2012 (UTC)
Ok, thanks for the info. I will see if I can change it correctly.इति इतिUAनेति नेति Humour Thisthat2011 22:11, 29 March 2012 (UTC)
Okay!  :-) And I also feel the mentioned Google Books reference is a weak one! What are you actually referring? You have referred page 13, I suggest to re-edit the reference and use Ref Book and add page numbers (13-15 most probably, I have just read those pages (but not very attentively).. let me know (in my talk page) if you think I can help! --Tito Dutta (Send me a message) 22:22, 29 March 2012 (UTC)
Just a brief note: exact page links to GBooks do not always work and often change. GBooks does not present the same view worldwide and, for example, there is much that is not visible to me in the UK that is visible to people in the US ... and there is even more that is not visible to people in China and, say, Bahrain. Personally, I doubt the utility of them and certainly in the case of older books it is preferable to give a link to an alternate online source (eg: www.archive.org) if the document is available there. - Sitush (talk) 23:53, 29 March 2012 (UTC)
This is a useful essay on GBooks issues. - Sitush (talk) 23:59, 29 March 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for April 4[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Holi, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Miniature (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 15:21, 4 April 2012 (UTC)

What is that link, could you point out that please?इति इतिUAनेति नेति Humour Thisthat2011 18:21, 4 April 2012 (UTC)
You won't get a reply because the message is automatically generated by a bot. If you want to stop the messages from appearing on this page then add {{bots|deny=DPL bot}} somewhere (I would suggest adding it right at the top, but it makes no real difference). HTH. - Sitush (talk) 18:30, 4 April 2012 (UTC)
Ok, I have manually corrected the links anyway. The dab solver did not work perhaps because of some script issues.इति इतिUAनेति नेति Humour Thisthat2011 18:32, 4 April 2012 (UTC)

Re: Gandhi Article[edit]

Hi Thisthat2011, I see that on the talk page of Mahatma Gandhi article you suggested that we should mention Gandhi's mother being in touch with her Jain guru, not sure if its is suitable for the article on Gandhi, I just wanted to know your thought. Also regarding the debate on the India page which seems to have died now, can you send me few potential material that can be helpful either via mail or the link on my talk page? I would like to read them before proposing anything. Thanks a lot --sarvajna (talk) 15:39, 4 April 2012 (UTC)

It is only a suggestion. The content says that 'in touch with community leaders', which could mean that she was doing something for her community, etc which is at variance to what the source says.
What would you want to know that can be potentially helpful for India talk page discussion? Could you say what is meant by that?इति इतिUAनेति नेति Humour Thisthat2011 18:26, 4 April 2012 (UTC)
The sentence of 'in touch with community leader' was removed now there is only a mention that Gandhi's mother was a Jain, regarding the India talk page I would like to know if you have any other sources apart from what YK had given regarding the Aryan migration theory, it would be helpful to carry forward the debate. I have a strong feeling that at present its biased. Thanks --sarvajna (talk) 18:49, 4 April 2012 (UTC)

June 2012[edit]

This is your only warning; if you make personal attacks on other people again, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. Comment on content, not on other contributors or people. Your constant snide attacks on User:Sitush have to stop, do you understand? -- Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 10:25, 9 June 2012 (UTC)

@Boing! said Zebedee
  1. . Which part of my comments not content specific? Is it about the question of whether Sitush is violating WP:AGF? It is a question, if he does not want to answer, you can not blame me. In fact, he has already answered by saying "Otherwise, I request yet again that you, TT2011, stop poking your nose in with unfounded accusations disguised as queries. Or, to use a colloquial expression, "put up or shut up" - which is quite personal and which appears to have been missed.
  2. . Where are my 'Your constant snide attacks on User:Sitush'? It is a direct accusation and you need to point it out please. I won't say 'put up or shut up' cause since you are an admin, you got to have reasons.
  3. . Is this not personal according to you? - 'Dealing with your machinations at article talk pages is bad enough, without having them spill over into my talk space.'
Please be clear on these.इति इतिUAनेति नेति Humour Thisthat2011 15:10, 9 June 2012 (UTC)
My point is that you should stop popping up in disputes between Sitush and other people with your usual totally one-sided anti-Sitush bias, criticising only him and appearing as if you are stalking and/or harassing him. Sitush and Yogesh are grown up enough and know each other well enough by now to conduct their own disputes and to seek neutral help with resolution if they need it - so please stop trying to stir the shit on one side only. -- Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 18:49, 9 June 2012 (UTC)
If you have not yet noticed, you are yourself getting too personal to me here with rather accusative tone. 'so please stop trying to stir the shit on one side only.' - is not an answer to the question I have posed. Abusing does not justify nonsense from your side.
You are not welcome on my page, please avoid accusing repeatedly while ignoring similar behavior of yourself and Sitush.इति इतिUAनेति नेति Humour Thisthat2011 18:54, 9 June 2012 (UTC)
If you would care to pay attention, you will see that I am carefully staying away from the dispute between Sitush and Yogesh, precisely because I am too closely involved with them - and I am saying that you need to do the same. As for not being welcome on your talk page, I will be happy not to post here again, with the exception of any actual requirements related to any admin actions that may at certain times be appropriate. -- Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 18:59, 9 June 2012 (UTC)
@Boing! said Zebedee: You consider thisthat2011's comments as personal attacks, would you kindly look at the section For adnmin Dougweller's attention, would it be possible for you to address the issues such as hounding and complete lack of civility and constant heckling without any provocation on the part of the concerned editor. Thanks in advance. Yogesh Khandke (talk) 15:26, 9 June 2012 (UTC)
Please ignore those which require Admin Dougweller's personal attention. Yogesh Khandke (talk) 15:35, 9 June 2012 (UTC)
Hi Yogesh. I'd like to be able to help, but I don't think I am sufficiently uninvolved with the two of you - I suggest you follow the steps at WP:DR if you cannot resolve your differences by discussion, and if necessary ask for someone who is unambiguously uninvolved to assist. -- Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 18:52, 9 June 2012 (UTC)
Thanks nevertheless. Yogesh Khandke (talk) 03:39, 11 June 2012 (UTC)

Invitation to the Project Talk Page[edit]

I have started a discussion on WP:India talk page with topic "Why self-identification for caste verification of a person?" here.

Sitush and some other members are saying that self-identification should be mandatory for caste verification of a person, while I am opposing this as it makes it impossible for names of famous people to be included in the List of XYZ caste.

So I request you to come with your views and participate in this discussion. JC Ramek (talk) 09:31, 7 August 2012 (UTC)
