India WikiProject Invite

Thanks for the invite! Yes, I would like to join. I am quite new to this world. Please guide me as to how to go about it. I too had noticed your presence.

-Paalappoo (talk) 07:42, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

You are welcome, Let me know if you need any help or guidance in Wikipedia -- Tinu Cherian - 08:12, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

gv.wikipedia message translation

As requested. It's just the standard welcome message for contributors.

"Hi TinucherianBot II, and welcome to Wikipedia. Thanks for your contributions. I hope you'll enjoy your time here. It's easy to start a new article, and go to Halley Baljey (Town Hall) to talk to other ysers (if you want to) or to Ynnyd y phobble to get a grip on the latest happenings on Wikipedia.

Please sign your name on your talk page messages with four tildes(~~~~); that will add your name and the date automatically. If you need help, look at gv:Wikipedia:Cooney or add a message on (AllieBot's) talk page. Again, welcome!"

Yes check.svg Done -- Shimmin Beg (talk) 07:46, 2 February 2009 (UTC)
Ok. Thanks for the translation -- Tinu Cherian - 08:11, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

Internode Systems under WikiProject Computing?

Could you tell me if ISP's come under this Project? I'd like to put the project banner on the above ISP. Kathleen.wright5 12:28, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

ISPs does come WP:COMP and its descendent project WikiProject:Computer Networking -- Tinu Cherian - 15:59, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

Pulling an RSS feed

Continuing our discussion here: What I had in mind was to pull news from some website, say Google News, and update it on portals, such as Portal:Kerala. It's been lying unattended ever since I reduced my wiki activities. :( The bot would ideally have to pull the feed, separate the content, and update the information on the wiki page. It should also archive old entries. --thunderboltz(TALK) 20:37, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

OK. Let me see what I can do -- Tinu Cherian - 04:30, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

Hidden Categories & duplicate articles

Came across a few articles in the orphan list, which are not really orphan. eg. Birla Balika Vidyapeeth Can you please tell me how to remove the hidden category without opening the article in edit mode?

Came across separate articles for Kokkamangalam and Kokkothamangalam. I think both are about the same place. Noticed the same in Cheppad and Cheppaud. How are such errors set right?

Thanks in advance! Paalappoo (talk) 12:50, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

Ok. Hidden cats are usually embedded in templates. They can be removed only by removing the template itself. Other cats are be easily removed/added/changed by enabling the "HotCat" feature from the gadgets section of your preferences.

If you encounter articles of the same thing, add {{merge}} tags to them. If you have time, you may merge the article to the most correct name and redirect the other one to it. Make sure you dont lose useful data in the redirected one.

Hope that helps. -- Tinu Cherian - 04:36, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

RfA thanks

Thank you for the trust you placed in me by supporting my RfA (which passed and, apparently, I am now an admin!). I will do my best to continue to act in a way that is consistent with the policies of wikipedia as well with our common desire to build and perfect this repository of human knowledge; and can only hope that you never feel that your trust was misplaced. Thanks again! --Regent's Park (Rose Garden) 23:44, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

Thanks (user box!). Good to know you're keeping an eye out! It's a bit odd being an admin when there are people like you out there who should have got the mop long ago! (Hint, hint!) --Regent's Park (Rose Garden) 16:08, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
I would second RegentsPark on the hint. Wiki San Roze †αLҝ 20:42, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
Thanks buddies... As of now I am mostly not interested. There are nil adminstrative roles that I do as of now...Whenever I need some admin actions, I am more than happy to get them done from lots of helpful dudes like you... A big thanks again, friends... Makes me feel that I am atleast doing some good work here :) -- Tinu Cherian - 04:29, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

Tagging by your bot

Hi Tinucherian,

Was this a correct tagging by your bot? I don't see any involvement of Indian wikipedians there, nor is the subject related to India. --Ragib (talk) 20:50, 5 February 2009 (UTC)

Thanks Ragib for bringing this to my notice. The reason why 1971 Dhaka University massacre was tagged for WP:INDIA was because it had the following cats Category:1971 in India and Category:Indo-Pakistani War of 1971 which are primarily india related. I have removed the banner and the cats. Readd the cats if neccessary but i think they are not related cats -- Tinu Cherian - 04:39, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

Internal project page tagging

Could you tag all the following projects and their sub-pages with their banners and categories?

  • All pages under Wikipedia:WikiProject Soft drinks with {{WikiProject Soft Drinks |class=project |importance=na}}, categorize as [[category:WikiProject Soft Drinks|{{PAGENAME}}]]?
  • All pages under Wikipedia:WikiProject Spirits with {{WikiProject Spirits |class=project |importance=na}}, categorize as [[category:WikiProject Spirits|{{PAGENAME}}]]?
  • All pages under Wikipedia:WikiProject Wine with {{WikiProject Wine |class=project |importance=na}}, categorize as [[category:WikiProject Wine|{{PAGENAME}}]]?
  • All pages under Wikipedia:WikiProject Beer with {{WikiProject Beer |class=project |importance=na}}, categorize as [[category:WikiProject Beer|{{PAGENAME}}]]?
  • All pages under Wikipedia:WikiProject Food and drink with {{WikiProject Food and drink |class=project |importance=na}}, categorize as [[category:WikiProject Food and drink|{{PAGENAME}}]]?

Thanks, --Jeremy ( Blah blah...) 00:54, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

Message from JSR

The education in India article, a top importance article under WP: India, has recently been rewritten by me. Though the rewrite is is no way complete I invite you to take a look and see, and if possible contribute. Sincerely, JSR 0562 18:24, 6 February 2009 (UTC)


Hey.. how's it going? I just took off for a few months from wiki.. exploring other forms of creativity. :) I hope you've been keeping well and taking good care of the wikibot-ic responsibilities. I just got back today.. started off with Rang De Basanti.. cleaned up.. and re-nominated it for A-class review. Let's see how that fares.. Shortly - anything new that I should know? :D I've gotta do a lot of catching up, eh?

I see that you've given me a shiny button for being on the indian wikipedians by the number of edits list. Thanks! Did someone give it to you too? :) I'm sure that you continue to do a great job all these days. Anyways, ping me back whenever possible. Mspraveen (talk) 16:58, 7 February 2009 (UTC)

Kerala district templates

Thanks Tinu. Very kind of you. I was guessing that you must have made the Thiruvananthapuram district template earlier, though I did not check the history. I can add the link for other district templates at the bottom of it.

Thanks a lot! A great movitavtion for me! :) Paalappoo (talk) 10:50, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

You are welcome... Keep up the good work. Btw I was also in the process of creating article stubs for the half a million indian villages. See this : Wikipedia_talk:Noticeboard_for_India-related_topics/Archive_40#Bot_to_create_articles_on_missing_settlements_and_places_in_India. I cud create only article stubs of just 3000 villages when this site went down which was my primary source of data. -- Tinu Cherian - 10:54, 16 February 2009 (UTC)
Yes, I had seen your village articles. Most of mine are stubs, as my knowledge is half-baked and I don't have the confidence to claim that I am right. Let me see what I can do about villages. I think I have expanded a few of your stub articles. I was mainly looking for smaller towns on the National Highways, esp in states which have a lesser presence in Wiki, like Orissa and Chhattisgarh. (I can't ignore my home state too.) Paalappoo (talk) 11:06, 16 February 2009 (UTC)
Yes. We may not be personally able to create full articles for all the 5 lakh villages. But if We can start with something , someone will expand them in future.A new user wishing to write about one of these places won't have to figure out how to start a new article.People are likely to people are more likely to expand a stub than start an article means that all the place stubs that would be created will be likely to get expanded in future. And that is how Wikipedia have always grown ! -- Tinu Cherian - 11:13, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

I am not sure what exactly you are referring to. If you are referring to this edit summary , I think you have mistaken me. The edit summary was that it doesnt require any special attention of WikiProject India (which I am an active member) as the article is already in a good shape. The template {{expert-subject|India}} says "This article is in need of attention from an expert on the subject. WikiProject India or the India Portal may be able to help recruit one." Btw just letting you know I am proud Indian Wikipedian who had created over 1500 India related articles and one of the top 10 Wikipedians from India or Indian orgin . Btw please remember to sign you talk page comments with 4tildes ( ~~~~ ) Cheers -- Tinu Cherian - 05:20, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

Infobox:Film inquiry

I've made an edit to Hot Enough for June and I noticed that some of the parameters e.g Starring only show up in edit mode. Why would this be and can something be done about it? Kathleen.wright5 03:36, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

The infobox uses the template {{Infobox Film}} hence paramaters should exactly match the template's parameters. Hence I have changed stars to starring which is the correct usage. For more details see Template:Infobox Film . Thanks -- Tinu Cherian - 04:44, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

Discussion pages

Looks like I messed up Mandu. I had moved the previous Mandu page to Mandu, Madhya Pradesh. But the discussion page still has a re-direct. Can you please help in setting it right?

Is it ok to have a discussion page like Talk:Jomon_Puthenpurackal?
