Dravidian[edit]

I noticed your addition to Dravidian. I think it may have been copyright material from this URL and have removed it. Wikipedia adheres to copyright laws, and generally information from websites cannot be added. You can, however, read various sources and then add (in your own words) information. Remember, always cite your sources. If you have any questions I'm happy to answer them.--Commander Keane 02:49, 15 December 2005 (UTC)

Welcome and copy-rights[edit]

Welcome!

Hello, Yogagates, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your name and the date. If you need help, check out Wikipedia:Where to ask a question, ask me on my talk page, or place {{helpme}} on your talk page and someone will show up shortly to answer your questions. Again, welcome! 

Please read WP:IUP and the links there in to understand how to use images. The images you have added to Aishwarya Rai are not in good form. Repeated addition of such images could be considered vandalism. --Gurubrahma 07:14, 6 March 2006 (UTC)


Image Tagging Image:Time1 small.jpg[edit]

Warning sign
This media may be deleted.

Thanks for uploading Image:Time1 small.jpg. I notice the 'image' page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you have not created this media yourself then there needs to be an argument why we have the right to use the media on Wikipedia (see copyright tagging below). If you have not created the media yourself then it needs to be specified where it was found, i.e., in most cases link to the website where it was taken from, and the terms of use for content from that page.

If the media also doesn't have a copyright tag then one should be added. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media qualifies as fair use, consider reading fair use, and then use a tag such as {{Non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair_use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other media, consider checking that you have specified their source and copyright tagged them, too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any unsourced and untagged images will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Image legality questions page. Thank you. Sue Anne 04:56, 8 April 2006 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:Brphoto.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Brphoto.jpg. However, the image may soon be deleted unless we can determine the copyright holder and copyright status. The Wikimedia Foundation is very careful about the images included in Wikipedia because of copyright law (see Wikipedia's Copyright policy).

The copyright holder is usually the creator, the creator's employer, or the last person who was transferred ownership rights. Copyright information on images is signified using copyright templates. The three basic license types on Wikipedia are open content, public domain, and fair use. Find the appropriate template in Wikipedia:Image copyright tags and place it on the image page like this: {{TemplateName}}.

Please signify the copyright information on any other images you have uploaded or will upload. Remember that images without this important information can be deleted by an administrator. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me, or ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sue Anne 01:57, 23 April 2006 (UTC)



Fair enough[edit]

But what from? Indonesian Language edit needs WP:RS, WP:V, WP:CITE - just as it is even with a link to another article does not necessarily prove anything - cheers SatuSuro 01:44, 14 June 2008 (UTC)

Chandrayaan[edit]

I noticed you removed cited material about the contribution of one of the scientists in the mission, while retaining the other. I request you to refrain from such edits in the future.Dineshkannambadi (talk) 12:03, 24 October 2008 (UTC)

List of languages by first written accounts[edit]

All the links (except the last one from Univ of Hawaii) you gave as references for tamil are unreliable. Only academic references are reliable. Unfortunately that reliable reference also does not mention 3rd century BCE, hence unacceptable for this article.

You also removed some academic references which were there for dating Mitanni IA loanwords. Kindly desist from such non-constructive edits. Thanks ­ Kris (talk) 19:09, 16 November 2008 (UTC)


1. Why did you remove the Michael Witzel references provided for Indo-Aryan in Mitanni documents without any reason?
2. All those references you provided for tamil are non-academic, see Wikipedia:Reliable_sources, Wikipedia:Verifiability. I am disputing those references, and it is upto you to show that they are reliable and verifiable. ­ Kris (talk) 19:29, 16 November 2008 (UTC)

Please do what you want. I will tag the dubious references as unreliable since they appear to be so. ­ Kris (talk) 19:48, 16 November 2008 (UTC)

Why then did you remove a scholarly academic reference to Mitanni? ­ Kris (talk) 19:52, 16 November 2008 (UTC)
