Thank You

Thank you for the barnstar and the kind words. But, crap, somebody noticed me. That can't happen. Um, there will be a knock on your door. Don't worry, the person has a toy gun. :) Bgwhite (talk) 19:36, 17 April 2012 (UTC)

Sorry about the edit summary omission. As for "unreferenced" tag, I see its usage as a waste of time of wikipedians: as soon as someone adds a single minor reference, he has the legal right to remove the tag, so that you have to keep an eye and renew tagging. (And I've seen done so.) In other words, I don't see the need to have a watershed between a completely unreferenced page and a page with a single footnote. One kind of tag is enough. And the reason that I tagged nearly every phrase is that in 1-2 months I am going to delete this text, if left unreferenced. If I leave any of it untagged, the wrath of Shiva (or Kali) will be imlemented unto me by some IP warrior. Staszek Lem (talk) 00:10, 18 April 2012 (UTC)

P.S. I occasionally run into a wikipedia artile about topics related to Indian subcontinent, and very often I am baffled with a significant disregard of wikipedia policies. Why don't you colleagues set up a project to do a massive cleanup of the articles on these subjects? There are hundreds of pages about gurus and swamis nobody heard about outside India (or even outside Kerala), written in a very non-neutral tone. Almost every page about an Indian surname is unreferenced mythology, etc. I see this often when I look into wikipedias in other languages, with less strict policies. So I have an impression that there is a separate Indo-English Wikipedia inside English Wikipedia :-) Staszek Lem (talk) 00:10, 18 April 2012 (UTC)

I have replied the first part of your post in your talk page. And here is the answer of second part (i.e. PS section) :
While patrolling, I regularly get some American European footballer, models, artists, I have never heard their names!
You have told

Can you make a list of "those hundreds of pages" please? You can post the list below--Tito Dutta (Message) 00:28, 18 April 2012 (UTC)

I will waste my time on this only if you pledge to fix them or to make a schedule to fix them. As I mentioned, I run into India topics only by accident. I am not saying that all India-related pages are bad. I am saying that I have an impression that in addition to a big number of very good articles, there is a growing number of really sore in the eye. May be this is my unlucky experience. On the positive side, I must say that I see an unusually low amount of stupid vandalism and silly jokes in this area, i.e., generally the edits are with well intentions. Staszek Lem (talk) 00:43, 18 April 2012 (UTC)
As for American models, and rap singers, here is the same with me. Only American names are usually better watched and easier to find references (or prove lack thereof). Talk about systemic bias :-) Staszek Lem (talk) 00:46, 18 April 2012 (UTC)
I have not seen too many Keralite Swamis and Gurus articles, there will be hardly 14-15 articles in Wikipedia on religious figures from Kerala. So, there can't be hundreds of unreferenced, POV violated articles!
And some Indian religious figures articles where I am a primary editor, you can see these articles:
See if you think these articles lack citation etc too!

I wrote "a big number of very good articles" didn't I? Do you want this list or not? Or it was just a rhetoric challenge? Staszek Lem (talk) 00:59, 18 April 2012 (UTC)

Welcome to the Teahouse!

Hi Titodutta! Thank you for signing up to be a future host at the Teahouse. Well, great news - the future is here, we'd love you to be a Teahouse host! During this pilot time, Teahouse hosts do more than just ask questions - they invite new users to the Teahouse and track those invitations, they also provide input and insight into the development of the Teahouse. A few things I'd love to see you do as a Teahouse host:

  • First, declare your Hostness! Add yourself to the Host page! This page is where new editors and your fellow hosts can learn about you and reach out. By signing up here you declare that you know how to serve up a great cup of tea. Add yourself here.
  • Learn more about your responsibilities as a host. Teahouse hosts have certain responsibilities during this pilot. If you feel you can't meet them, perhaps a host role isn't for you during this important pilot.
  • Don't forget to be friendly and greet the guests! Say hello and be friendly, don't forget! If you were new someplace, wouldn't you like to be offered a friendly hello when you visit for help?
  • Invite new users with our invite guide. Aside from answering questions, the most important thing we need you to do as a host is to invite new users. Please follow these steps and invite as many as you can to experience the Teahouse. Also, please document your experience in the spreadsheet link provided on that page!
  • Visit the tips page. The tips page provides you some basic tips on how to engage with visitors at the Teahouse. We have a special way of doing things - unlike other areas of Wikipedia! (Such as greeting new editors with a simple "Hi!" and being as easy to understand and friendly as possible.)
  • Join the conversation by participating on the host lounge talk pages. We also have an IRC channel now for hosts to get to know one another, develop your skills, and eventually the channel will serve as an additional help space for new editors!

I'm so happy that you volunteered to lend a hand at the Teahouse. I look forward to following your contributions and invitations, and your assistance in making the Teahouse a great and warm place for new Wikipedians. See you there :) Sarah (talk) 01:47, 18 April 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for joining WikiProject Article rescue squadron!


Hi, Titodutta, welcome to the Article Rescue Squadron! We are a growing community of Wikipedia editors dedicated to identifying and rescuing articles and content that have been nominated for deletion. Every day hundreds of articles are deleted, many rightfully so. But many concern notable subjects and are poorly written, ergo fixable, and should not be deleted. We try to help these articles and content to quickly improve and address the concerns of why they are proposed for deletion. This covers a lot of ground and your help is appreciated!

If you have any questions, feel free to ask on the talk page, and we will be happy to help you.

And once again — Welcome! Northamerica1000(talk) 11:02, 18 April 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for April 19

Hi. When you recently edited Garfa, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Kasba (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.
