Hi!

On 26 January 2013, Did you know? was updated with a fact from the articles Brahmachari (1938 film) and Meenakshi Shirodkar.

The fact was ... that Meenakshi Shirodkar stunned the traditional audience when she appeared in a swimsuit in the 1938 Marathi film Brahmachari?

Stich[edit]

Hi Yogesh - it is unsourced, but I think it's also unnecessary unless it's an actual quote. The article already says basically the same thing here: "[Stich] lost his business, money, home, and ultimately his liberty". Pburka (talk) 23:41, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

As I wrote on your page, making unsourced edits is against my grain, so this one surprises me. You are right, we have the statement you have quoted above, so it is quite unnecessary to have one very similar a few lines down the article. Yogesh Khandke (talk) 05:51, 13 March 2013 (UTC)

Kokani Muslims[edit]

Hello,

I was looking up the Kokani Muslims page and see that you have heavily edited the page. Can you please inform me as to why? As I thought it was quite informative in its previous incarnation. I am not sure that the information that you have put, name that Kokni's are mainly Maliki, from my knowledge I have known Kokni's to be predominantly Shafi.

Kind regards

March 2013[edit]

Please do not add unreferenced or poorly referenced information, especially if controversial, to articles or any other page on Wikipedia about living persons, as you did to Teesta Setalvad‎. Thank you. We cannot call her Communist unless we can quote her saying she is. I also removed her being implicated as that is also a BLP violation unless there are convictions. Dougweller (talk) 17:46, 26 March 2013 (UTC)

I merely summarised: "Teesta and her husband Javed Anand are both committed communists who describe themselves as "very proud of being part of the Left tradition." Also I don't understand the necessity of the formal "March 2013" sub-section title. Yogesh Khandke (talk) 17:53, 26 March 2013 (UTC)
How is that even a violation, they say that they are proud of being part of left tradition, this is an opinion piece written by Teesta and her husband and in the end they write we are both very proud of being part of the Left tradition--sarvajna (talk) 05:39, 27 March 2013 (UTC)
And we could use that as a quote perhaps. But WP:BLP is pretty clear, contentious material needs very good sources. See WP:BLPREMOVE. Does she say she is a Communist? A huge number of people identify as part of the left tradition but are not communists. Apologies that this was done formally, I was tired and took a shortcut. Dougweller (talk) 09:55, 27 March 2013 (UTC)
Dougweller you missed answering the key question: I merely summed material in one the sections and put it in the lead, why is material in one of the sections kosher for you and bad as soon as it is placed in the lead? Yogesh Khandke (talk) 15:21, 28 March 2013 (UTC)
One more question from my end as well which you did not answer on the article's talk page, you used a blog as a RS to defend removal. Why was that? --sarvajna (talk) 15:26, 28 March 2013 (UTC)
Sarvajna he needs to answer that on the article talk page. I have stopped warring on article pages, so I won't revert Dougweller. Yogesh Khandke (talk) 15:34, 28 March 2013 (UTC)

Exodus of Kashmiri Pandits[edit]

[Mrt3366 bolded the heading to seek attention, apologies in advance] Hey, YK. I am very surprised, there is no article about the exodus, can you help me? -sarvajna (talk) 18:09, 28 March 2013 (UTC)

We will need to do a little research. How about starting it on your sandbox? Yogesh Khandke (talk) 18:22, 28 March 2013 (UTC)

Hey, YK I saw your comments about Gyan Publishing on Wikipedia:Reliable sources/Noticeboard/Archive 138#Faces_of_Goa. I face a similar problem with Sitush he argues here that anything from "Gyan Publishing House" must be summarily rejected regardless of the book's author, content, etc. Kindly comment here or on the talk of Kashmiri Pandits if you wish.

Is it true that "we should not use tertiary sources for controversial statements"? His aplomb stuns me. Is this: The Indian Encyclopaedia:Biographical, Historical, Religious, Administrative, Ethnological, Commercial and Scientific. Kamli-Kyouk Phyu. vol. 13. Genesis Publishing. 2002. p. 3910. ISBN 8177552708.  not a reliable source because it's a tertiary source? What kind of reasoning is this? Mr T(Talk?) (New thread?) 07:15, 31 March 2013 (UTC)
Did you even see this? Mr T(Talk?) (New thread?) 13:55, 31 March 2013 (UTC)
(I'm sorry for taking time, you see, these days I'm a little busy and don't check Wikipedia as often as I would wish to, secondly I don't have a smart phone etc., that I can use to edit on the go) I have a topic ban regarding Indian history, so I cannot participate in a discussion related to subject discussed on the said page. Regarding Gyan, to my understanding there isn't a blanket ban, there never is, you could take the issue to reliable sources notice board. You need to establish the reliability of the writer etc. Yogesh Khandke (talk) 03:32, 1 April 2013 (UTC)
Do you know anything helpful about the following claim's validity, which is "we should not use tertiary sources for controversial statements"? Mr T(Talk?) (New thread?) 06:10, 1 April 2013 (UTC)
(followed link on Mr T's talk page) Tertiary sources can be used to evaluate due weight and summarize topics which involve many primary and secondary sources, but "should not be used in place of secondary sources for detailed discussion" per WP:WPNOTRS. As for Gyan Publishing House, it is a listed Wikipedia Mirror[1] and a known problematic publisher (the relevant discussion at RSN is available here). User:Sitush/Common#Gyan and User:Utcursch/plagiarism from Wikipedia also have more details on this. Correct Knowledge«৳alk» 12:26, 1 April 2013 (UTC)
Some Gyan books have been bad, that doesn't mean that if a scholar uses Gyan as a publishing house, we bar that as a source for use here. Case by case basis is the rule afaik. Yogesh Khandke (talk) 11:54, 2 April 2013 (UTC)
I had referred on Gyan book written by a Fulbright scholar and it was considered good at RS. Yogesh Khandke (talk) 11:57, 2 April 2013 (UTC)
Just an update, I am reading "Our Moon Has Blood Clots: The exodus of the Kashmiri Pandits". That would give an idea on structure of the article.-sarvajna (talk) 05:21, 23 April 2013 (UTC)

Reliable Sources[edit]

Hi Yogesh, I don't understand. If the truth is not reflected here, what is the purpose of having it here. Who chooses reliable sources? How can one source be called reliable while others be discarded as unreliable? I was dragged into that forum, I had provided my view points in the talk page of the article itself. I really don't understand this, the scientific evidence, observable evidence etc clearly suggest that controversial article over which the argument was happening was clearly wrong. The observable evidence in this case was so obvious that there wont be any need for someone to write it down anywhere. And if someone decided to write down a lie, how could that become a reliable source? Amal89 (talk) 19:41, 28 March 2013 (UTC)

Amal89 I thank you for bothering to write to me. Wikipedia has rules, but like everywhere it isn't perfect. If you check wp:RS you will have detailed definitions of what a reliable source is and what isn't then you have the Reliable sources notice board in case of a dis-argument, all I say is if something is bothering you, put it on the back burner, if the mistake is really notable, it is bound to be seen by other editors and there will soon be a consensus and it will be notified. Wikipedia you see rules by wp:CONSENSUS, plus arguments that are wp:OSE like don't work. Please leave controversial topics alone, and have fun editing else where, keep the article on your watch watchlist and you can contribute positively whenever there is a consensus that agrees with you. Thanks again. Yogesh Khandke (talk) 04:17, 30 March 2013 (UTC)

Thanks Yogesh, perhaps I should wait until I find a source that also meets the wp:RS. Amal89 (talk) 11:30, 30 March 2013 (UTC)

If possible kindly create your user page too. Yogesh Khandke (talk) 12:07, 30 March 2013 (UTC)

Modi[edit]

I thought we were doing so well but you've gone off course here with your political stuff again. The edit quite deliberately did not mention Teli because that is a caste and would require self-identification. However, OBC is not a caste but rather an official government designation. If you and Ratnakar do not come to your senses about this dreadfully biassed article then you will find yourselves at ANI again, and with your history it will likely not be a good result. - Sitush (talk) 18:00, 30 March 2013 (UTC)

I disagree with you, however I have as a policy decided not to edit war, I have repeated many times, I have no control over what you do. Yogesh Khandke (talk) 20:40, 30 March 2013 (UTC)
The text says "He has claimed that his family were designated as an OBC", do the quoted sources support this statement? If the article is dreadfully biassed (sic) I don't see what stops anyone from improving it. Yogesh Khandke (talk) 20:45, 30 March 2013 (UTC)
The content was not added by me, I was working on improving it per the source and Ratnakar deleted it three times as I was trying to resolve the issues including by introducing additional sources. That put me on three reverts and then you came along and removed the whole thing. Between you, Ratnakar and the lamp-post, the article has been massively sanitised in recent months, obscuring much of the facets of this man's character and actions that have been reliably reported. I, too, removed some content and toned-down the phrasing of other stuff but in my absence it began to take on the appearance of a Hindutva-favouring gloss-over job. This is precisely one of the issues that has been raised in relation to you two at ANI before now. I'd love to see what would happen if I added that he has been described as a "hard-core RSS leader" by a well-known, Wikipedia-notable political scientist who specialises in Indian affairs but, in the interests of fairness, I've left that out for a long time also.

Biassed is a correct spelling, btw - no idea what your "sic" is for, so you'll have to explain that one. - Sitush (talk) 21:35, 30 March 2013 (UTC)

(1) I was unaware that "biassed" was an alternate legitimate spelling to biased, one that I am more familiar with. I read more into it than I should have. My bad. (2)I was reading a recent ANI case, and I just saw an editor being penalised for using the terms "Zionist"... "pro-Israeli"; I wonder when Indians would be afforded the same sensitivity. (3)I don't know why you are creating an association "you & Ratnakar", please don't. (4)I needn't say this, yet you are free to make any legitimate edits, including mentioning Modi's RSS association. The RSS is a legal pan-India organisation, that won't be a BLP issue, and the same can be supported by wp:Rs. Though "hard-core" would be "weasel". (5)I declared on the talk page months ago my opinion that the Modi article was not well written, I have tried to improve it the way I could. If you regard my work differently, you are free to have your views and take appropriate action. (6)You write "The content was not added by me" what do I infer from that? That you have no issue with its removal? Then why did you bring the specific deletion up? Yogesh Khandke (talk) 22:06, 30 March 2013 (UTC)
The lead does mention that Modi has been a member of the RSS since childhood. It is a statement of facts. Yogesh Khandke (talk) 22:33, 30 March 2013 (UTC)
Link to ANI case that mentions Zionism, pro-Israel and Jewishness.[2]Yogesh Khandke (talk) 22:36, 30 March 2013 (UTC)
Sitush, 1) I did not delete either the source or the wordings that Modi is a OBC, I just removed the extra things about OBC that you had written. 2) Between you, Ratnakar and the lamp-post, the article has been massively sanitised in recent months, obscuring much of the facets of this man's character and actions that have been reliably reported Let me tell you neither me nor Yogesh have done any major changes to the article in past few months so stop accusing us of doing something which we have not done. 3) I'd love to see what would happen if I added that he has been described as a "hard-core RSS leader" by a well-known, Wikipedia-notable political scientist who specialises in Indian affairs The very second line of the article says that he is a RSS member since childhood. Like YK said hard-core would be "weasel", even if you want to write more about his association with RSS, you are free to do so. On your talk page you say ...Yogesh, who of course is/was another of the Hindutva fraternity and you also say that Hindutva is a Fascist policy, in a way you are calling me and YK a Fascist which is not at all acceptable, please avoid using such terms in future. --sarvajna (talk) 10:05, 1 April 2013 (UTC)

Katkari[edit]

Hello Yogesh. Good to see you have created a page for the Katkari. I created one in my sandbox April 1, and was waiting to transfer it over. Yes, I am quoting my own work, along with other key authors on this community. As there are very few published accounts on this community I do not see how one can avoid referring to this new book. It is a credible source, among very few available. If it is too prominent in your view I would be happy to reduce the number of references. Suggestions? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Daniel Buckles (talkcontribs) 14:01, 2 April 2013 (UTC)

It is a grey area as far as I am concerned. Please don't link to your site, if you wish to have media in the article, please upload it to Wikipedia Commons and then link it, the way you have done with the photos. If you check my sandbox I too had it there for months. You see if there aren't many sources it means the subject isn't notable. Yogesh Khandke (talk) 14:06, 2 April 2013 (UTC)
This is what wp:RS has to say about self-published sources: "Self-published material may sometimes be acceptable when its author is an established expert whose work in the relevant field has been published by reliable third-party publications."

Grizzly/grisly[edit]

Hey Yogesh, no big deal but I thought I'd just mention this for your info. Your command of English is better than some English people I could name but I think at WT:INB you meant "Grisly scenes at Ezhava", not "grizzly". They are homophones, as with "their" and "there". Maybe it was just a slip - I do it myself occasionally - but if not then now you know. I know that you have access to decent dictionaries etc so I won't bore you with the difference in definitions here. - Sitush (talk) 16:58, 2 April 2013 (UTC)

I share company with George Ord in having being stumped by this homophone. Now I know. Thanks. Yogesh Khandke (talk) 03:34, 3 April 2013 (UTC)
I'm more or less taking a few days off and doing some reading around stuff. I've just read a review of a new book - Does Spelling Matter?, Simon Horobin, Oxford University Press - in The Guardian newspaper and thought a couple of snippets might amuse you. Jerome K. Jerome apparently said that English spelling "would seem to have been designed chiefly as a disguise to pronunciation"; and Mario Wandruszka (a linguist) thinks it is "an insult to human intelligence". I'm no linguist, being limited to English and gibberish, but I do think that the homophone situation is one of the big issues with the language. I have no idea whether the same applies in other languages. - Sitush (talk) 08:57, 7 April 2013 (UTC)

Cruelty to animals[edit]

This is a tricky one to argue. we sort of have to recognize that some categories SOUND POV, but are in fact neutral. I hadnt actually realized that this was true for a lot of categories. And yes, i am trying to stick up for animals as part of this. I personally (this is not reflected in my editing of course), believe that our job with the animals we are caretakers for is to eliminate their sense of suffering (esp. the sense of being trapped), and keep the pain of their death for our consumption to the absolute minimum. this would allow domesticated animals to live in the relative comfort of our care, free from predators and the stress of nature, as they would do very poorly in nature now. this philosophy would require advocates to legally speak for each species of animals (perhaps people with autism), and would require that we eliminate all factory farming, even if it means we gradually reduce the human population (lower replacement rate, not forced death of course) to allow for humane raising of animals for food. and, as you can tell, i believe that veganism is neither evolutionarily correct for humans, nor feasible for the majority (sort of dangerous from a protein point of view: maybe we can start a "krillianism" movement, where we eat plant foods and krill only).Mercurywoodrose (talk) 01:58, 9 April 2013 (UTC)

  • Thanks for your userpage. that is a very wise story. I hope my argument is not offensive. I am simply trying to figure out how ethical humans can reconcile their animal ancestry as omnivores who appear to need animal protein in part to thrive.Mercurywoodrose (talk) 02:04, 9 April 2013 (UTC)

Sources and reliability[edit]

If you want to contest a claim made in a reliably published source you have to present a better source which contradicts it. The next time you try to challenge or discredit a source that is clearly reliably published without providing a reference from another source in support of your opinion I will start an ANI thread asking for administrative intervention against your disruption. It is impossible to have a reasonable discussion about content if you reserve the right to reject any source without feeling the need to present any stronger evidence than because you say so. ·ʍaunus·snunɐw· 17:03, 12 April 2013 (UTC)

You ask me to support anything I have written specifically, I will promptly do so. Regarding AN/I I have no control over your actions. Yogesh Khandke (talk) 17:14, 12 April 2013 (UTC)
I have asked you five or six times in different threads on the talkpage to support your claims and not a single time have you presented more than a bald claim that it is obvious that the source is unreliable for this reason or other based on your personal knowledge and opinion. That is intolerable. ·ʍaunus·snunɐw· 17:38, 12 April 2013 (UTC)
I'm bald, not my facts, please check the article talk page after a minute. Yogesh Khandke (talk) 17:42, 12 April 2013 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Suicide of Rehtaeh Parsons, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Saratoga (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.

Anita Pratap[edit]

Good subject. You need to expand it a bit more. Its currently a little more than 1100 characters and 1500 characters is a minimum requirement for WP:DYK. You may introduce a section on her career adding her journey. Also write about her works; books, documentaries and others. That would fit the length issues. And then you should nominate it. Note: The nomination has to go on or before 25th April. §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {T/C} 04:42, 23 April 2013 (UTC)

Topic Ban[edit]

YK, I do not know how you would do that but you should get the terms of your topic ban cleared. When they say that you cannot edit anything related to Indian history what part of history are they taking about. Technically even yesterday is history and people can drag you to ANI for writing about a topic which is less than 12 years old.-sarvajna (talk) 12:27, 28 April 2013 (UTC)

As I said at Talk:Narendra Modi, it would be somewhat unfair if someone did that and I think they would get short shrift at ANI. I suspect that a safe bet would be not to edit where stuff happened more than a generation ago. I think a generation is roughly 25 years? - Sitush (talk) 12:30, 28 April 2013 (UTC)
So you've found your voice that you lost when I asked you about Thatcher/Thackeray's funeral article. If anyone would wish to initiate proceedings for Modi/ anything else, there is little that I can do about such pervert applications of policies that are meant to be used to help build a better encyclopaedia and not to browbeat or bully. Yogesh Khandke (talk) 15:02, 28 April 2013 (UTC)
You have lost me here, sorry. I have little interest in either Thatcher (Margaret, presumably, whom I had no time for and whose article I have thus deliberately avoided) or any of the Thackerays, other than perhaps William. William is a quite interesting author but, of course, has to be read "in his time". He can be pretty funny but is somewhat forgotten because he was writing around the same time as Charles Dickens.

I'm fair: some leeway regarding the definition of history is desirable but, by the same token, your topic ban was precisely because you exhibit tendencies towards POV stuff that the wider community deemed to be unsuitable. Do not blame me for what consensus says. That sarvajna has so far escaped some similar ban is a source of constant amazement to me, but they have had warnings at ANI etc and perhaps should not push the issue. - Sitush (talk) 01:06, 6 May 2013 (UTC)

I am happy that you prefer to duck the Thatcher/Thackeray funeral issue or perhaps leave it alone. Some time ago it dawned on me that life has been extremely kind to me and that I have been so very fortunate. It is not worth spending time bickering, it helps me finding the positives in events that happen to me and people that I come across. I've also learnt that I've very little control over what others do to me, so I might as well stop bothering about that. Yogesh Khandke (talk) 02:56, 6 May 2013 (UTC)
Sitush, I do not know what you are talking about That sarvajna has so far escaped some similar ban is a source of constant amazement to me, but they have had warnings at ANI etc and perhaps should not push the issue. I have never been warned at ANI except once here and if you read that discussion again you will see that I had requested the admin to give evidence of my POV pushing behavior several times and they never provided one (in September 2012). I would not like to speak more about this past discussion. I know you would be very happy to see me topic banned but I assure you that it would not happen however strong your evil intentions might be. -sarvajna (talk) 10:20, 6 May 2013 (UTC)

ANI[edit]

Sorry, but you are mentioned at WP:ANI again - see here. - Sitush (talk) 23:56, 12 May 2013 (UTC)

I seems that by the time I've had time to answer the said thread has been archived. You've written there: "I am not suggesting that you have a bias but I do think that you have taken your eye of the ball. I've done that and, hey, it happens but in the interval while you claim to have been watching there have been massive removals of arguably non-favourable content - mostly by Yogesh Khandke - that went undiscussed, was often reinstated by others (not me), and there was not a peep out of you. So, how long has your eye been off this particular ball? The RfC is A Good Thing. Maunus suggested it and I agreed. Later, much later, you said the same thing today. So what is your problem here?" You have made unsubstantiated allegations:

  • I made massive removals of non-favourable content, implying that there has been selective editing by me, keeping what is favourable and removing what is non-favourable.
  • Most of the removals have been made by me.

Now these are accusations, where is the evidence. Yogesh Khandke (talk) 16:02, 17 May 2013 (UTC)

Local Body Tax[edit]

Hi! You seem to be inactive currently. (Why does that happen whenever i need you? Face-smile.svg) But still will drop a note here. I waited and waited for someone to create an article on LBT. But alas, no one did and i had to take that task. I have created it now and i am kinda happy with whatever is in it. More needs to go on protests and a section of opinions by notable people might also be added. Various counter-suggestions also need to be added. But i personally lack huge interest in such topics and find it very time consuming (although worth at the end). Hence i thought your editing would be helpful. I am also afraid that maybe due to lack of much knowledge of mine on the topic, i might represent things in a wrong or unnecessarily complicated manner which someone with better interest and knowledge would simplify and correct. Do edit it when you are back.
YK's page stalkers are also welcome in helping. In case you know of any editor with special interest in taxation, please spread the word there. §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {T/C} 10:57, 14 May 2013 (UTC)

Notification[edit]

The Arbitration Committee has permitted administrators to impose discretionary sanctions (information on which is at Wikipedia:Arbitration Committee/Discretionary sanctions) on any editor who is active on pages broadly related to India, Pakistan, and Afghanistan. Discretionary sanctions can be used against an editor who repeatedly or seriously fails to adhere to the purpose of Wikipedia, satisfy any standard of behavior, or follow any normal editorial process. If you continue to misconduct yourself on pages relating to this topic, you may be placed under sanctions, which can include blocks, a revert limitation, or an article ban. The Committee's full decision can be read at the "Final decision" section of the decision page. Please familiarise yourself with the information page at Wikipedia:Arbitration Committee/Discretionary sanctions, with the appropriate sections of Wikipedia:Arbitration Committee/Procedures, and with the case decision page before making any further edits to the pages in question. This is a non administrator notification, and will be logged as such on the case decision, pursuant to the conditions of the Arbitration Committee's discretionary sanctions system.

Grammar[edit]

As an example of the issue at NYSD, the phrase would be "similarly-focussed column" - although doubling the "s" is not required, hyphenation is. - Sitush (talk) 15:50, 12 June 2013 (UTC)

Oh thanks but the issue is that the Diary originated as a column per source. That wasn't clear from the way it read, so tweaked. Yogesh Khandke (talk) 15:57, 12 June 2013 (UTC)
It is clear, believe me. I'll try to think up an example for the hyphen thing because it can be a bit tricky. - Sitush (talk) 15:59, 12 June 2013 (UTC)
Take the example of well known and well-known. The hyphen exists to avoid ambiguity and should usually be applied if the adjectival words are followed by a noun. Thus, a "well known writer" might be read as being a known writer in good health or a person known to be a writer. Equally, it would be a "well-known car manufacturer" rather than a "well known car manufacturer". On the other hand, "I am well known for being wrong" (note that adjectival words are not immediately followed by a noun).

This is probably about as clear as mud but it is the best I can do at short notice. - Sitush (talk) 16:06, 12 June 2013 (UTC)

Oh you got me all wrong, the explicitness I needed is explained here under.
  • Your version: . It is maintained by David Patrick Columbia, who founded it in 2000 having originally written a monthly column with similar focus for Quest magazine from 1993.
  • My version: The Diary originated in 1993 as a monthly column for the Quest magazine. The column had a similar focus to the present website.
  • The source verbatim: "His signature New York Social Diary began in 1993 as a monthly society column in Quest magazine"
Your version doesn't inform that the diary began as a column. That was the purpose of my edits.

I sometimes have serious doubts whether you should be editing this project. You clearly cannot understand English as well as you think. This is one of those occasions.

  • Shobhit, it isn't about Indian/ non-Indian, it is about what I feel right or wrong. Yogesh Khandke (talk) 09:40, 18 June 2013 (UTC)
It is heading towards "no consensus", which means it will not be deleted. I've said that I will fix it and I will, Shobhit. I've just got a bit of real life work to sort out today first. Given that Yogesh's solution to copyright violation is usually to load an article with unnecessary quotes, the chances are that if he gets involved then I'll still rewrite it, so it would probably be a waste of his time. But that is for him to decide, of course. - Sitush (talk) 09:28, 18 June 2013 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Do not pass Go. Do not collect $200.[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Do not pass Go. Do not collect $200. has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Per WP:NEO: "To support an article about a particular term or concept we must cite what reliable secondary sources, such as books and papers, say about the term or concept, not books and papers that use the term." - the current article is entirely "sources that use the term".

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. McGeddon (talk) 16:02, 25 June 2013 (UTC)

Those three sources are all just using the term to compare some personal situation to the Monopoly card. For a recent neologism where sources have actually written about the term and its usage, take a look at Chapulling. We need to find a source that's taken a serious look at the sentence's adoption as a household phrase - I've had a quick look through Google News, but can only find people using the metaphor themselves to describe something else. --McGeddon (talk) 16:37, 25 June 2013 (UTC)

Edits on Samra page[edit]

I have mostly never included anything without a citation on Wikipedia, and where I earlier did I have myself removed such text. I think Sitush, as an experience Wiki editor is bullying in his deletions of anything related to an author called James Tod, whose books are taught in History colleges across Rajasthan as the bible of Rajput history. My premise is that I am just reproducing what has been printed in his well known books. To judge the correctness of historical premises is always a contentious issue and we cannot dismiss a writer just because some people have said that Tod is an un-reliable source. And then he is feigning ignorance of the fact that Samra and Sumra are different spellings of the same HIndi surname, something akin to Dutta/Datta, Agarwal/Agrawal, Misra/Mishra. He has ruthlessly vandalised the entire page and made it a stub after all the hard work that has gone into finding reliable well known sources of information on it. I am not a Wikipedia Pro, I seek your help in resolving this issue. You review what I have reverted with an open mind and then decide amongst your Wiki-peers. If there is a dispute resolution mechanism on Wikipedia, I am willing to take my case there.Kulveer (talk) 08:32, 27 June 2013 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) James Tod is the antithesis of a reliable source. He meets WP:RS only when we are quoting him on his own opinion. This has been discussed dozens of times before. James Tod itself points out the general opinion of Tod within the historical field. Qwyrxian (talk) 10:19, 27 June 2013 (UTC)

This notice refers to the article Jesus isn't a dick keep him out of my vagina. Technical 13, please be technically right in giving notices. §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {T/C} 18:31, 4 August 2013 (UTC)
  • Technical 13, there is no way you can construe this as an attack page. As a matter of fact, one can see your speedy attack page nomination as an attack. Come on now. Drmies (talk) 23:19, 9 August 2013 (UTC)
  • @Dharmadhyaksha, Drmies: quite honestly, I'm unsure as to what I did with Twinkle to cause it to post this uw template here. Until Drmies pinged me, I didn't even know it was here. Misclick perhaps for the rationale? I don't care to speculate, and apologize to you Yogesh Khandke if you interpreted this as a pointed attack against you. Happy editing.

  • @Technical 13: It's all right, no issues at all. Yogesh Khandke (talk) 23:40, 9 August 2013 (UTC)
    • Alright then, carry on. Sorry Technical, but as an admin I have to take the db rationales seriously. Drmies (talk) 00:12, 10 August 2013 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Hyderabadi haleem, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Ramazan (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.

Identifying admins[edit]

Thanks for trying to do what you tried to do regarding Soham321. It pains me almost as much to take the course I did as to tolerate what led up to it. They are, of course, going to be even less happy now regarding me now and thus it is best that I stay away from their talk page. I realise that you've joined Kim Dent-Brown in trying to talk them away from another precipice and I wonder if you would be prepared to set them right about one more thing: they've just created a checklist (noticed when I was reviewing the terms of the ban) and they've got the wrong end of the stick regarding Mark Miller, whom they think is an admin. Please could you point them to Mark's user rights, which lack the "administrator" right that you can see, for example, here. I wonder if this misunderstanding is related to their previous repeated visits to WP:DRN, ie: that they mistakenly thought that the volunteers at DRN are admins. Thanks. - Sitush (talk) 04:30, 10 August 2013 (UTC)

I was unaware of their mistaking me for an admin. This seems to happen quite often including one very stupid media report sometime back (but under the username Amadscientist). Please do set them straight or if you wish I can simply leave them a note letting them know I am not an administrator here, just very vocal.--Mark Just ask! WER TEA DR/N 04:36, 10 August 2013 (UTC)
Sitush, is it possible you saw the name Amadscientist (my old username. Just changed a few days ago) next to my name and in a quick scan thought he referred to me as administration? I can't see anything there about me as an admin and nothing that looks like it was changed.--Mark Just ask! WER TEA DR/N 04:52, 10 August 2013 (UTC)
I looked under your old username as well as your new one before commenting above. As far as I can see, the old redirects to the new. I think it is just another of Soham's misunderstandings. Hopefully, some time spent away from the Singh article will give them breathing space to familiarise themselves with things, although given their past problems at the Narendra Modi article, I do think that would be more easily achieved if they voluntarily stayed away from everything related to the politics of India for a while: it is a toxic environment at the best of times, it is particularly difficult for newbies, there are elections coming up and, of course, being India-related, it tends not to get the same level of oversight. - Sitush (talk) 05:19, 10 August 2013 (UTC)
Oh, sorry, I see what you mean now. No, they changed it after I posted here. Probably saw the Echo. - Sitush (talk) 05:22, 10 August 2013 (UTC)
OTOH, this stuff is simply point-y (spotted because I have Dharmadhyaksha's talk page watchlisted). - Sitush (talk) 05:56, 10 August 2013 (UTC)
@Sitush:I had suggested ways of identifying whether an editor is an admin or not.[4] Soham has corrected Mark's status on his talk page. So that is all I suppose. Yogesh Khandke (talk) 15:54, 10 August 2013 (UTC)
Yep. I also didn't see how it was a list of who they thought were admin. Got it and note the change. Thanks.--Mark Just ask! WER TEA DR/N 19:31, 10 August 2013 (UTC)

ANI[edit]

I have raised your topic ban violations at ANI, the section is here Darkness Shines (talk) 14:58, 11 August 2013 (UTC)

Topic ban block[edit]

Since you have repeatedly flouted your topic ban, and your last violation earned you a 1-month block, I have blocked you for 3 months. This last episode is a clear violation by any reasonable and logical interpretation. When you return, I strongly suggest you take an interest in some other topic areas that aren't even remotely related to Indian history. Your next violation may very well result in an indefinite block or community ban. --Laser brain (talk) 13:10, 12 August 2013 (UTC)

Request reason:

I see the consensus regarding the scope of the ban and would abide by it. Yogesh Khandke (talk) 1:13 am, 21 August 2013, Wednesday (8 days ago) (UTC+5.5)

Decline reason:

Kindly come back after three months. Your post haste acceptance does not seem convincing; my suggestion would be to be away from the project for three months and come back with a fresh mind and perspectives that involve group discussions and consensus based approaches. You seem to have a fairly good contributory prowess for the project. Don't let it be destroyed by your impulsiveness. Go ahead, do something else; and please do come back after three months. We'll talk then. Thanks. Wifione Message 04:44, 29 August 2013 (UTC)

But my comment was deleted by "sitush". Following are my comment can you please edit this with your expertise.


@sitush:- Hi dude, I am new to editing, I am from mumbai and belongs to koli caste(native east indian of Bombay).

        I can see my post has been deleted by you with some reason that I don't understand why?. I am giving some reference here for my post 
        If possible please add this in to this page. If not possible please give me clear picture for same.
        Here is my statement :- "In Mumbai, Native Christians include East Indian Catholics, who were converted by the Portuguese
        during the 16th century, are also koli people" 
        reference for same is "https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mumbai#cite_note-257" And "http://www.east-indians.com/" And

Recent edits on Modi article.[edit]

Hi. Hope you're well. You're welcome. Could you please take extra care in editing this page such as following a neutral point of view? Do take a look at my new edit before changing as I've retained your added information but better worded. Let's work together to make the article, the best it can be. Cowlibob (talk) 10:14, 16 May 2014 (UTC)

Six percent in a couple of sessions being called positive, that is not neutral, that is an understatement. Yogesh Khandke (talk) 10:28, 16 May 2014 (UTC)
Cowlibob (talk · contribs) Also he lead a pre-poll alliance not just the BJP as your version informs. Yogesh Khandke (talk) 10:35, 16 May 2014 (UTC)
How about my recent edit? Mentioned that he led NDA as well. Just wanted to avoid saying victory twice. I think "surged" and "record high" should indicate to the reader that it was a very positive response. Also added based on early vote count as it was, can change when full results are out and stock market closes.Cowlibob (talk) 11:46, 16 May 2014 (UTC)
He won by highest ever margin ever, will mention that. Yogesh Khandke (talk) 16:43, 16 May 2014 (UTC)
It would probably be better if you do not edit the article at all but rather confine yourself to the talk page, as per WP:COI. You're already under the thumb of one topic ban, Yogesh, and I'm sure that you don't want to add another area to the list. - Sitush (talk) 01:27, 18 May 2014 (UTC)
You can take me to AN/I for this COI thing, and I am waiting for your email to send me links for where I've outed myself, after a few days if I have the time and energy I may bring the issue up at an appropriate forum, a friendly heads up Sitush (talk · contribs) Yogesh Khandke (talk) 02:11, 18 May 2014 (UTC)

Modi as PM[edit]

YK, I believe the technical term for Modi right now is "Prime Minister designate". Until such time as he is sworn in he can't be called PM and is not the 14th Prime Minister of India. Could you check and change the article accordingly? Thanks. --regentspark (comment) 02:03, 21 May 2014 (UTC)
