Civility barnstar[edit]

Civility barnstar.png Civility Award
For the civil behaviour while being under persistent, one sided attacks, almost everywhere, by the same two or three people. One can certainly learn from your example. (talk) 14:32, 12 November 2011 (UTC)

Graham's Hierarchy of Disagreement-en.svg

Thank you very much. I'm relieved that our differences on India have not soured things between us! I look forward to working with you again on that and other articles. AshLin (talk) 02:34, 16 November 2011 (UTC)

Hmm, that thought never crossed my mind. For me, what happens at an article stays there and doesn't spill over to other articles. For the most part, the India article itself is just fine and even getting better but it is an exception in one area. Nonetheless, I cannot foresee any unsolvable disagreements with you or greater than 99.8% of the 2500 watchers/editors either at the India article or elsewhere. And given that almost all of the editors you and I interact with stick to the top of the pyramid on the right, what's to worry about? Zuggernaut (talk) 15:28, 16 November 2011 (UTC)

Talkpage editwar[edit]

You had no place to reinstate the comment on my talkpage. What ever the interpretation you have about the talkpage guidelines, I'm quoting from the same page that you linked:

"Personal talk page cleanup: On your own user talk page, you may archive threads at your discretion. Simply deleting others' comments on your talk page is permitted, but most editors prefer archiving. Many new users believe they can hide critical comments by deleting them. This is not true: Such comments can always be retrieved from the page history. Removal of a comment is taken as proof that the user has read it."

With some other editors doing the same recently I might be out of patience for this specific matter, so consider this as the only warning/notification for your action. --lTopGunl (talk) 04:37, 18 November 2011 (UTC)

Harvard citations[edit]

Hi Zuggernaut. I think this [1] might be of interest to you. I, for one, found it extremely useful.MW 09:54, 19 November 2011 (UTC)

Exactly something I was looking for. I will install it soon, thanks for letting me know. Zuggernaut (talk) 13:08, 19 November 2011 (UTC)
Thanks to Ucucha...:-) MW 14:03, 19 November 2011 (UTC)

Why ANI?[edit]

I wonder why you have taken your topic-ban review to the ANI. The ANI is a completely useless place. It is stuffed with limeys who have written British-Indian history articles from a whitewased British POV and are committed to keeping it that way. They can't have these articles written from NPOV. They are never going to take off the editing restrictions.MW 11:21, 20 November 2011 (UTC) You are probably not aware of this, but recently, there was an admin user who was even talking about euthanasia for you at user talk:Fowler&fowler. And when I and one other user protested, the admin user even claimed that the protests were somehow wrong!!! Nothing wrong with what the admin user said!!! That is the level of their necessity to keep those articles whitewashed. In this situation, what can you expect from Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents‎‎.MW 11:59, 20 November 2011 (UTC)

There are some "POV-apples" out there but generalization is not a good idea. I took it to ANI because it is quick. All avenues should work with equal fairness for all if Wikipedia wants to remain relevant. Yes, I am aware of that conversation. Zuggernaut (talk) 03:54, 21 November 2011 (UTC)

Deletion discussion about BJP youth wing protest against Wikipedia's map of India[edit]

Hello, Zuggernaut, and thanks for contributing to Wikipedia!

I wanted to let you know that some editors are discussing at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/BJP youth wing protest against Wikipedia's map of India whether the article BJP youth wing protest against Wikipedia's map of India should be in Wikipedia. I encourage you to comment there if you think the article should be kept in the encyclopedia.

The deletion discussion doesn't mean you did something wrong. In fact, other editors may have useful suggestions on how you can continue editing and improving BJP youth wing protest against Wikipedia's map of India, which I encourage you to do. If you have any questions, feel free to ask at the Help Desk.

Thanks again for your contributions! regentspark (comment) 13:52, 21 November 2011 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

Tireless Contributor Barnstar Hires.gif The Tireless Contributor Barnstar
For your prolific and impressive work pertaining to India related articles. Cheers, buddy! :-) Joyson Noel Holla at me! 09:06, 3 December 2011 (UTC)
Joyson, Thanks for what is most likely the last barnstar. I saw your e-mail late, yes, I've decided to leave the Wikipedia community of editors. There is a small community working on the various Indian Wikipedias in local languages whom I admire and respect and I wish them the very best. If you are fluent in a regional language, you might consider contributing there too. Thanks again, Joyson, for all the collaboration and support. Zuggernaut (talk) 09:53, 7 December 2011 (UTC)
It's really sad that you have left. I was really looking forward to more of your awesome contributions. But i guess you have other more interesting things to do, and i wish you all the best. Take care! Joyson Noel Holla at me! 10:13, 7 December 2011 (UTC)


I've decided to leave the Wikipedia community of editors. I am sorry I am not available by e-mail anymore and have left unanswered e-mails. Thank you and best wishes to the entire Wikipedia community including the people I've had content disputes with. Goodbye. Zuggernaut (talk) 09:53, 7 December 2011 (UTC)

WikiProject India Tag & Assess 2012 Contest[edit]

Hello friends, we are a number of editors from WikiProject India have got together to assess the many thousands of articles under the stewardship of the project, and we'd love to have you, a fellow member, join us. These articles require assessment, that is, the addition of a WikiProject template to the talk page of an article, assessing it for quality and importance and adding a few extra parameters to it.

As of March 11, 2012, 07:00 UTC, WikiProject India has 95,998 articles under its stewardship. Of these 13,980 articles are completely unassessed (both for class and importance) and another 42,415 articles are unassessed for importance only. Accordingly, a Tag & Assess 2012 drive-cum-contest has begun from March 01, 2012 to last till May 31, 2012.

If you are new to assessment, you can learn the minimum about how to evaluate from Part One of the Assessment Guide. Part Two of the Guide will help you learn to employ the full functionality of the talk page template, should you choose to do so.

You can sign up on the Tag & Assess page. There are a number of awards to be given in recognition of your efforts. Come & join us to take part in this exciting new venture. You'll learn more about India in this way.
