AIV[edit]

Next time you list someone on AIV, make sure they have vandalized after receiving a final, level4 warning or equivalent. This is in reference to User:Mlevy7. bibliomaniac15 03:56, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

I blocked them because it was obvious that they were a vandalism-only account. In the future though, remember to list on AIV after a final warning like {{test4}} or {{uw-vand4}}. bibliomaniac15 04:03, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

numbered list (#) wikicode[edit]

Hi there Yousaf465; this is just a friendly reminder to be careful with how you format comments in numbered list sections. I've had to jigger your comment formatting a couple of times at Wikipedia talk:Flagged protection and patrolled revisions/Poll [2] [3] because it broke the numbering. Now, numbered lists are easily the worst-implemented feature of our wikicode; it's easy to break things accidentally, and the syntax for doing it right is counterintuitive. However, please just watch and be careful, and use preview if you have to. In particular, you can't use hard returns to add a blank line, even if you want multiple paragraphs; you have to add an unordered list comment at the same level as your first paragraph. Yes, that is painfully stupid. Also, the only syntax that works for adding unordered list comments to a numbered listis to start them with exactly '#:'. Yes, that is even more painfully stupid. There's nothing you or I can do about the bad syntax, though, so please just be careful. Thanks. Gavia immer (talk) 04:53, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

Rectified.yousaf465'
Thanks. As I said, I understand making a mistake with that, so long as we make sure the numbering gets corrected. Gavia immer (talk) 05:05, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

RE: ACC tool[edit]

The issue has already been discussed with the only people who have power on ACC, the tool administrators. For all points and purposes, this decision is final. If you can keep up good behavior and reapply in a few months, you will probably get accepted. --FastLizard4 (TalkIndexSign) 06:05, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

Ahh, sorry for misunderstanding what you were trying to say :). The grounds for the denial is based on the fact that the tagging could be described as disruptive, regardless of whether or not the tagging was correct. --FastLizard4 (TalkIndexSign) 06:10, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

Pearl Buck a missionary[edit]

Actually she was a missionary herself, at least in the sense of being on the payroll of a mission board, until she resigned in 1932. But I agree that the huge Christian missionary sign on the side of her page is out of proportion to the importance in her life, so I agree it should have been removed. ch (talk) 05:56, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the offer of adoption[edit]

I am glad for the offer of adoption as I am quite new and struggling on rules. Initially, can you send me your thoughts relative to the autobio Benito T. de Leon I earlier submitted--it has initially passed nomination for deletion: can I continue editing it or just leave it as is?

2009 FATA mosque attack[edit]

I've redirected 27 March 2009 Jamrud bombing to 2009 FATA mosque attack, I think that's the article on the evnt. If they are not the same event, I apologise, but I hope you agree it is better if every editor works on the same page. Hiding T 15:32, 28 March 2009 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of 2009 Manawan Police Training School in Lahore attack[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on 2009 Manawan Police Training School in Lahore attack requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a very short article providing little or no context to the reader. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you. JCutter (talk) 04:19, 30 March 2009 (UTC)

Dear Yousaf465,
The Lahore police academy attack is a new article based on the same incident as the earlier 2009 Lahore police academy attacks. What are your views on the merge discussion? JSR 0562 08:10, 30 March 2009 (UTC)
Merge is my view.or rename first one to second.Second option is better.yousaf465'

You are the lead contributor so your choice matters most. Do we copy/paste all your content to the second article and then redirect? Then do the same for talk? I'm not sure of the bureaucracy here. JSR 0562 08:18, 30 March 2009 (UTC)

You should nevertheless get the credit for creating the first article on WP. Why did'nt you link it anywhere ? JSR 0562 08:20, 30 March 2009 (UTC)
I think somebody as already done that.yousaf465'

Redirect done and I have left a small note crediting the article to you. Thank you for your detailed work. JSR 0562 08:29, 30 March 2009 (UTC)

Thank you for the pie. I hope you contribute to the article and its as good as your other efforts. JSR 0562 08:36, 30 March 2009 (UTC)
Will try,but have to take a short break.yousaf465'

Edit was from Geo or Dawn and very sketchy at the time as it was just happening.[edit]

All reports, seemed to be changing from everyone, even differing groups Fazlullah or another want credit. Best I can tell from google earth the site is 31°35' 30.38" N by 74°26' 45.84"E (shows a foot trod running track) and 31° 35'31.07"N x 74° 26' 46' 46.50"E is the only other site which fits the photos. If you have ever been to Lahore, Pak. I am wondering what the 8 oval laal (terra cotta) structures are, just off GTroad. Each has a large upright mast at center. I can only guess?Allenwalla (talk) 01:04, 1 April 2009 (UTC) all are two to three km east of the police training camp.

I will check.Thanks for the coordinates.yousaf465'

The first location is in Kashmir.And second is not workingyousaf465'

The laal structure is a batha( brick making [factory] [4]).yousaf465'

Yousaf465,Thanks for the info on the brick kilns/factories. With eight of them to the east of Lahore city I now understand the complaint of hazy air. I guess bricks are still heavily used around Lahore. I was very tired when I wrote the coordinates and miss wrote 34 when it should have been 31°. the 31°35' 30.93 x 74°26'45.76" seems to have a running track with a large triangle (different gravel or grass) like the badge on police berets, in the center of the track. Even Kashmir and Jammu on google earth have many pictures of local sights with history. Lahore area has only a few? Allenwalla (talk) 23:35, 2 April 2009 (UTC) Surprised I was that the Wagah crossing, with the choreographed splendidly daily show put on there, was not marked. As for the attack at Manawaan the numbers of shaheedi and wounded change daily. removing incorrect drivel, lager photo show assuption wrong. Bricks are type for using in house construction.yousaf465'

Yes it seems to be I will correct.yousaf465'

Saw your links-surprised by the condition of the police academy cadet barracks, bedrolls on floor and plaster peeling all around, not even charpais?

Message from JSR[edit]

The ITN was delivered to me. Actually you deserve it so assuming that they had the wrong address, I'm delivering it to you.

Current events globe On 30 March, 2009, In the news was updated with a news item that involved the article 2009 Lahore police academy attacks, which you created. If you know of another interesting news item involving a recently created or updated article, then please suggest it on the In the news candidates page.

Let me see that article all through today. I will check back in the evening. JSR 0562 05:18, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

Oh Thanks.That article is just away from GA,your contribution will be highly welcome.yousaf465'

Dear Yousaf,
I have just come back dead tired from work. Given my experience on editing when tired I'm not sure I can do much right now. I'm willing to do whatever I can to help you in the article but please give me until tomorrow to do so :) JSR 0562 16:44, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the ITN. I will try to reach the article by evening-night. JSR 0562 09:23, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

I'll need some more time (let me look at it for a couple of days). The first thing is my main area of study is science so I am finding this difficult. Secondly I usually like to refer to books and journals neither of which are currently with me for defense related research. The GA review has failed since Jan 11 so the need to renominate the article will arise. After forming an opinion in a couple of days I can help in writing and some expansion. I will also look for books and articles on this incident during the coming 48 hours. JSR 0562 17:44, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

Usefull story on Manawan[edit]

Yousafsai, sending you a story link, which may be helpful in your page on Manawaan [5]Allenwalla (talk) 13:30, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

info - attack on the cricket team, another link--seems somebody was staying home when they were supposed to patrol ahead of the buses [6]

…‘The officers were supposed to reach the route of the visitors an hour before the cricketers were to leave their hotel for the stadium to make a last minute check on security deployments, but they instead preferred to stay back at their homes ignoring the warnings intelligence agencies had issued about a possible hit on the Sri Lankan team.’

Please toss my edits to your page if not needed.

re. did not understand:

just added link to story on the cricket team attack, some police commanders that had been informed of a threatened attack on the Sri Lanka team, did not check or order check of route of busses ahead of team as they were playing 'hookie' at home. If that story is of no interest to you please delete my comments.Allenwalla (talk) 15:07, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

747[edit]

read the article you had done on extended 747s, amazing they could do such -- especially the whole tail being hinged. good job.Allenwalla (talk) 23:02, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

Aljazeera.com[edit]

About a week ago, you posted a question at WP:RSN asking whether Aljazeera.com was a reliable source. [7] However, the first two people to comment on this apparently confused Aljazeera.com with Al Jazeera, which is not affiliated with it, and the discussion was closed prematurely. I reopened the discussion, and you may wish to check the discussion again at WP:RSN; if it is no longer on the main page there, check the most recent archive. It hasn't been archived yet, but it might be by the time you get this message. --Metropolitan90 (talk) 04:09, 5 April 2009 (UTC) replied there.--yousaf465' 10:25, 5 April 2009 (UTC)

Cute cat[edit]

I just had to say, that is a cute cat in the picture(and a great picture as well). What happened to her/him? I too am a cat lover.WackoJackO 04:21, 5 April 2009 (UTC)

My cat was of similar breed he dead in a terrible car Accident right in front of my house while I was watching Obama's election! I will Nov 4 for that.Thanks for commenting on the picture it isn't him but similar.--yousaf465' 10:12, 5 April 2009 (UTC)

Message from JSR[edit]

The ITN belongs solely to you and in no way can be attributed to me. Your hard work credit goes to you. I can't take advantage of your generosity and add a star to my page. I have been unsuccessful in finding material for defense research so your suggestion of just expanding existing content is the best way to work. I'm having my motorcycle repaired and having cooling installed where I live (summers are here) so I have been busy. I will try and take care of the article on your behalf soon. JSR 0562 08:22, 5 April 2009 (UTC)

Rewritten lead as asked. JSR 0562 07:04, 8 April 2009 (UTC)

Just a tip[edit]

Now my grammar is very ordinary but just letting you know, after a full stop (.) and a comma (,) there should always be a space. Example, Human habitation of Australia is estimated to have begun between 42,000 and 48,000 years ago. These first Australians may have been ancestors of modern Indigenous Australians; they may have arrived via land bridges and short sea-crossings from what is now South-East Asia.

I'm saddened to have to post this, but I don't see much of an alternative. I've repeatedly tried to communicate that I did not wish to continue discussing this article on my talk page, as evidenced here: [8]. Since that has failed to make an impression, I'm going to be as specific as I can. Please stop posting to my talk page. Please stop harassing me, and posting inappropriate content on the AfD discussion board regarding India and terrorism. You have become so wrapped up in WP:OWN, WP:NPOV and WP:DICK, that I confess to being somewhat greatful that you are taking a wikibreak. --OliverTwisted (Talk) (Stuff) 07:23, 9 April 2009 (UTC)

Samjhauta Express bombing of 2007[edit]

The recent UN resolution of 29 June 2009 squarely blames LeT for the terrorist bombing of Samjhauta Express-“Arif Qasmani is the chief coordinator for 1267-listed entity (QE.L.118.05) Lashkar-e-Tayyiba’s (LeT) dealings with outside organizations and has provided significant support for LeT terrorist operations. Qasmani has worked with LeT to facilitate terrorist attacks, to include the July 2006 train bombing in Mumbai, India, and the February 2007 Samjota Express bombing in Panipat, India.The URL link is - http://www.un.org/News/Press/docs//2009/sc9695.doc.htm. I presume that the blame should rightfully go to LeT based on this piece of evidence. Bharat74 (talk) 21:48, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

About your BLA revert[edit]

This is pertaining to your following edit in the page Balochistan Liberation Army ;

They are know to have contacted and got support from Indian agents stationed there. BLA operatives are also being trained in camps being run by RAW. BLA Leadership is currently operating from safe houses by RAW

The source you specified does say that the above are contents of the dossier that Pakistan gave to India, but they have to be stated that way itself; for the sake of NPOV. so i am reverting to the earlier version. pls let me know your reasoning if u still insist on reverting again to ur version,(lets avoid an edit war) Thanks...

Well that o.k but it lacks a few sentences which should have been added. Well we can say this is how Pakistan put it. I think you will agree with me on this.yousaf465'
Stating that Pakistan handed over a dossier stating such and such is okay. make sure it goes into the article that way itself ... Arjun (talk) 18:19, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

Continental Airlines[edit]

Yousaf Bhai,

APJ Abdul Kalam is not a day in an day out matter for an Indian. Read about him. Most Indians consider him as the best human symbol of India second only to Mahatma Gandhi.

Why don't you do the same when Bill Clinton or a George Bush comes to Pakistan.... I assure you Zardari will go to the White House and apologize personally ;-)

BTW... Continental Airlines have given an UNCONDITIONAL APOLOGY and offered to follow all Indian Laws and Protocols. If we do not uphold and respect the symbols of our own country... nobody else will.

Salaam --Shantanu2806 (talk) 19:32, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

AA I will reply you later on. Until on just this " Zaradri might apologize for such a incident, but not our Prime Minister." I think matter is now solved, so no need to fuss over it anymore. WS. yousaf465'

Which Ton[edit]

In Pakistani–Turkish relations#Train Service is that 750 long tons, short tons or tonnes? There is a choice. Incedentally, where is the break-of-gauge? Peter Horn User talk 21:21, 15 August 2009 (UTC)

It's tonne, or meteric tonne that is what we usually refer to in Pakistan.--yousaf465' 16:17, 16 August 2009 (UTC)
Thanks, I'll now put a conversion in the article. But you have not answered my second question: where is the break-of-gauge? The rail link between Pakistan and Iran was long time in the making ,so when was it finally finished? I am quite aware of rhe fact that 66 gauge extended quite a distance into Iran without connecting with the Iranian standard gauge network and that the broad gauge portion within Iran would be converted as soon as the physical connection would be made. Some Wiki articles need to be updated now, like Rail transport in Iran and Rail transport in Pakistan. Peter Horn User talk 21:27, 16 August 2009 (UTC)

The break-of-gauge is at Zahedan, see Islamic Republic of Iran Railways#Link to Pakistan. Peter Horn User talk 23:48, 16 August 2009 (UTC)

I don't have any such knowledge about railways, so was unable to answer. I could to thanks you for your support, I'm willing to help as long as I could. There were some news that Pak-Iran links is under construction, I know no further.--yousaf465' 03:23, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

Question about merging all the October 2009 Pakistan attack articles[edit]

Hi Yousaf,

Seeing as you have been contributing heavily to October 2009 Lahore attacks, 2009 Pakistan Army General Headquarters attack, and 2009 Lahore police academy attacks, I want to ask you about this before I put this question on the talk pages for those articles: How would you feel about merging all three of the articles into a single article that covers attacks against Pakistani government facilities in October 2009? Are these all separate attacks that should each have its own article, or are they closely enough related to be clumped together in a single article? Caleb Jontalk 02:01, 17 October 2009 (UTC)

Well 2009 Lahore police academy attacks, took place in March. Although the groups might be the same. But 2009 Pakistan Army General Headquarters attack, and October 2009 Lahore attacks, took place within a week of each other. On top of this same group claims resposnibility for both attacks. So must get input from other users as well. --yousaf465' 02:14, 17 October 2009 (UTC)
Ok, I'll post the question in the talk pages of October 2009 Lahore attacks and 2009 Pakistan Army General Headquarters attack Caleb Jontalk 04:37, 17 October 2009 (UTC)

Peshawar bombing[edit]

Hey there! Just wanted to drop by and mention that you've been doing a great job on the article. One thing, though; try not to sign edits when they're in an article. :P Also, I find that it's more convenient to use ref names that are just a small portion of the publisher's name; that way, it's easy to remember and type (for example, <ref name=CNN />). Keep up the great work, though! Cheers, Master of Puppets 04:01, 30 October 2009 (UTC)

Invitation to comment[edit]

Hi Yousaf465. I am Cargoking and you probably have seen me around ITN. I have identified you as an ITN regular, so I thought I would inform you of a discussion opened on 5 December 2009.

MSGJ suggested on Arsonal's (who's fairly new to ITN) talk page, that ITN suggestions made on the candidate's page would be put on separate pages, such as Wikipedia:In the news/Candidates/2009-12-05. The past seven days of discussion would be automatically transcluded. "This would avoid the need for archiving and it would also leave the history of the page intact. It might also make it easier to create new days because we can use preload templates, etc." The only disadvantage to this proposal would be that each new comment would not show up on people's watchlists.

You are invited to take part in discussion here.

WP:ITN/C[edit]

When you nominate an item for ITN, it would be helpful if you'd provide an article and some description of the event- it makes it much easier to evaluate the item and much easier for admins to come up with a blurb if it gets on. Thanks, HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 14:22, 2 June 2010 (UTC)

No problem, will be careful in future. but I couldn't find a suitable article for the item in question, so nominated it without a target article. --yousaf465' 18:25, 2 June 2010 (UTC)
The article's not that important, but some description of what's happening is. :) HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 21:41, 2 June 2010 (UTC)

WikiCup 2013 February newsletter[edit]

Round 1 is now over. The top 64 scorers have progressed to round 2, where they have been randomly split into eight pools of eight. At the end of April, the top two from each pool, as well as the 16 highest scorers from those remaining, will progress to round 3. Commiserations to those eliminated; if you're interested in still being involved in the WikiCup, able and willing reviewers will always be needed, and if you're interested in getting involved with other collaborative projects, take a look at the WikiWomen's Month discussed below.

Round 1 saw 21 competitors with over 100 points, which is fantastic; that suggests that this year's competition is going to be highly competative. Our lower scores indicate this, too: A score of 19 was required to reach round 2, which was significantly higher than the 11 points required in 2012 and 8 points required in 2011. The score needed to reach round 3 will be higher, and may depend on pool groupings. In 2011, 41 points secured a round 3 place, while in 2012, 65 was needed. Our top three scorers in round 1 were:

  1. Colorado Sturmvogel_66 (submissions), primarily for an array of warship GAs.
  2. London Miyagawa (submissions), primarily for an array of did you knows and good articles, some of which were awarded bonus points.
  3. New South Wales Casliber (submissions), due in no small part to Canis Minor, a featured article awarded a total of 340 points. A joint submission with Alaska Keilana (submissions), this is the highest scoring single article yet submitted in this year's competition.

Other contributors of note include:

Featured topics have still played no part in this year's competition, but once again, a curious contribution has been offered by British Empire The C of E (submissions): did you know that there is a Shit Brook in Shropshire? With April Fools' Day during the next round, there will probably be a good chance of more unusual articles...

March sees the WikiWomen's History Month, a series of collaborative efforts to aid the women's history WikiProject to coincide with Women's History Month and International Women's Day. A number of WikiCup participants have already started to take part. The project has a to-do list of articles needing work on the topic of women's history. Those interested in helping out with the project can find articles in need of attention there, or, alternatively, add articles to the list. Those interested in collaborating on articles on women's history are also welcome to use the WikiCup talk page to find others willing to lend a helping hand. Another collaboration currently running is an an effort from WikiCup participants to coordinate a number of Easter-themed did you know articles. Contributions are welcome!

A few final administrative issues. From now on, submission pages will need only a link to the article and a link to the nomination page, or, in the case of good article reviews, a link to the review only. See your submissions' page for details. This will hopefully make updating submission pages a little less tedious. If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article candidates, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews. Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck! If you wish to start or stop receiving this newsletter, please feel free to add or remove yourself from Wikipedia:WikiCup/Newsletter/Send.

This is the first of a series of newsletters for Wikiproject Medicine's Translation Task Force. Our goal is to make all the medical knowledge on Wikipedia available to the world, in the language of your choice.

note: you will not receive future editions of this newsletter unless you *sign up*; you received this version because you identify as a member of WikiProject Medicine

Spotlight - Simplified article translation


Wikiproject Medicine started translating simplified articles in February 2014. We now have 45 simplified articles ready for translation, of which the first on African trypanosomiasis or sleeping sickness has been translated into 46 out of ~100 languages. This list does not include the 33 additional articles that are available in both full and simple versions.

Our goal is to eventually translate 1,000 simplified articles. This includes:

We are looking for subject area leads to both create articles and recruit further editors. We need people with basic medical knowledge who are willing to help out. This includes to write, translate and especially integrate medical articles.

What's happening?


IEG grant
CFCF - "IEG beneficiary" and editor of this newsletter.

I've (CFCF) taken on the role of community organizer for this project, and will be working with this until December. The goals and timeline can be found here, and are focused on getting the project on a firm footing and to enable me to work near full-time over the summer, and part-time during the rest of the year. This means I will be available for questions and ideas, and you can best reach me by mail or on my talk page.

Wikimania 2014

For those going to London in a month's time (or those already nearby) there will be at least one event for all medical editors, on Thursday August 7th. See the event page, which also summarizes medicine-related presentations in the main conference. Please pass the word on to your local medical editors.

Integration progress

There has previously been some resistance against translation into certain languages with strong Wikipedia presence, such as Dutch, Polish, and Swedish.
What was found is that thre is hardly any negative opinion about the the project itself; and any such critique has focused on the ways that articles have being integrated. For an article to be usefully translated into a target-Wiki it needs to be properly Wiki-linked, carry proper citations and use the formatting of the chosen target language as well as being properly proof-read. Certain large Wikis such as the Polish and Dutch Wikis have strong traditions of medical content, with their own editorial system, own templates and different ideas about what constitutes a good medical article. For example, there are not MEDRS (Polish,German,Romanian,Persian) guidelines present on other Wikis, and some Wikis have a stronger background of country-specific content.

  • Swedish
    Translation into Swedish has been difficult in part because of the amount of free, high quality sources out there already: patient info, for professionals. The same can be said for English, but has really given us all the more reason to try and create an unbiased and free encyclopedia of medical content. We want Wikipedia to act as an alternative to commercial sources, and preferably a really good one at that.
    Through extensive collaborative work and by respecting links and Sweden specific content the last unintegrated Swedish translation went live in May.
  • Dutch
    Dutch translation carries with it special difficulties, in part due to the premises in which the Dutch Wikipedia is built upon. There is great respect for what previous editors have created, and deleting or replacing old content can be frowned upon. In spite of this there are success stories: Anafylaxie.
  • Polish
    Translation and integration into Polish also comes with its own unique set of challenges. The Polish Wikipedia has long been independent and works very hard to create high quality contentfor Polish audience. Previous translation trouble has lead to use of unique templates with unique formatting, not least among citations. Add to this that the Polish Wikipedia does not allow template redirects and a large body of work is required for each article.
    (This is somewhat alleviated by a commissioned Template bot - to be released). - List of articles for integration
  • Arabic
    The Arabic Wikipedia community has been informed of the efforts to integrate content through both the general talk-page as well as through one of the major Arabic Wikipedia facebook-groups: مجتمع ويكيبيديا العربي, something that has been heralded with great enthusiasm.
Integration guides

Integration is the next step after any translation. Despite this it is by no means trivial, and it comes with its own hardships and challenges. Previously each new integrator has needed to dive into the fray with little help from previous integrations. Therefore we are creating guides for specific Wikis that make integration simple and straightforward, with guides for specific languages, and for integrating on small Wikis.

Instructions on how to integrate an article may be found here [13]

News in short


To come
  • Medical editor census - Medical editors on different Wikis have been without proper means of communication. A preliminary list of projects is available here.
  • Proofreading drives
