WikiProject X is live![edit]

WikiProject X icon.svg

Hello everyone!

You may have received a message from me earlier asking you to comment on my WikiProject X proposal. The good news is that WikiProject X is now live! In our first phase, we are focusing on research. At this time, we are looking for people to share their experiences with WikiProjects: good, bad, or neutral. We are also looking for WikiProjects that may be interested in trying out new tools and layouts that will make participating easier and projects easier to maintain. If you or your WikiProject are interested, check us out! Note that this is an opt-in program; no WikiProject will be required to change anything against its wishes. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!

Note: To receive additional notifications about WikiProject X on this talk page, please add this page to Wikipedia:WikiProject X/Newsletter. Otherwise, this will be the last notification sent about WikiProject X.

Mymensingh division been declared, but the outline is yet not clear[edit]

I have updated and created a few maps w.r.t. the creation of new Mymensingh Division. Though the PM declared the establishment of the division, the outline and directive is yet not clear. We need to closely monitor the situation and update things accordingly. With the newly created division, the divisions map of Bangladesh is no longer 3-colorable and now I am using 4 colors. I experimented with several sets of colors. Other interested parties may also help. – nafSadh did say 13:33, 15 January 2015 (UTC)

Going with this source, the declaration seems to be unofficial. We need to wait a bit before changing the maps. However, the article on Mymensingh Division needs to be expanded. --Zayeem (talk) 06:39, 16 January 2015 (UTC)
I am keeping the 7 division version now, we can retrieve the 8 division version any time. I couldn't find any other source in national newspapers or anywhere else. – nafSadh did say 16:08, 16 January 2015 (UTC)

ISBN mentioned in Faujdarhat Cadet College article[edit]

Hello all. I am in no way assosiated with this project, but I decided to occupy some time with fixing broken ISBNs. On the page Faujdarhat Cadet College there is a reference to a book: "Mohammad Ataul Karim, A Steeplechase Story, Katskill, December 2008. ISBN 9843000029319."

The matter is that that ISBN is impossible. It has 13 numbers and it begins with 984, which is the national code for Bangladesh. However, such a code can only start ISBN with 10 numbers in total. Rather obviously there is an error somewhere. I would ask if anyone has any idea what the correct ISBN for Mohammad Ataul Karim's book called "A Steeplechase Story" is. It seems to be a very obscure book and, as far as I can tell, just about every reference to it is either directly copied from Wikipedia or doesn't list ISBN...

This is an extremely trivial matter, but I ask just in case anyone here can verify this.

An editor has started making significant changes to this article - starting by reverting it to a version from 2009. Can someone with more familiarity with the subject review the changes being made. noq (talk) 12:24, 2 February 2015 (UTC)

Rainmaker23 is a bold user. Sometimes he may cause havoc, but some of his edit is really good. – nafSadh did say 22:56, 2 February 2015 (UTC)

Any comments on Draft:Md. Ziaul Haque?[edit]

Your comments on Draft:Md. Ziaul Haque are welcommed. Use Preferences → Gadgets → Yet Another AFC Helper Script, or use {{afc comment|your comment here}} directly in the draft. -- Sam Sing! 00:14, 23 February 2015 (UTC)

Need expert help[edit]

Badly need Bangladehi wikipedian's help in 2001 Bangladeshi-Indian border skirmish article. Its written purely in Indian POV. Ibrahim Husain Meraj (talk) 03:54, 8 March 2015 (UTC)

FAR Rabindranath Tagore[edit]

I have nominated Rabindranath Tagore for a featured article review here. Please join the discussion on whether this article meets featured article criteria. Articles are typically reviewed for two weeks. If substantial concerns are not addressed during the review period, the article will be moved to the Featured Article Removal Candidates list for a further period, where editors may declare "Keep" or "Delist" the article's featured status. The instructions for the review process are here. SandyGeorgia (Talk) 13:15, 21 March 2015 (UTC)


Modhu, apparently a term of respect, found in many articles, but what does it mean? Should it have an article? What language is it?--DThomsen8 (talk) 19:43, 21 March 2015 (UTC)

Hi @Dthomsen8: 'Honey' means 'Modhu' in bengali. Sometimes it's a part of a name, i assume that's why you see 'Modhu' in different Bengali articles. btw, It's not a term of respect and I don't think we should create a different article for it. ~ Nahid Talk 20:44, 21 March 2015 (UTC)

Corruption In Bangladesh[edit]

Hi! I recently came across the article Corruption in Bangladesh. It's interesting, but deeply flawed, with missing information and blatant POV without supporting citations. I don't have anything like the knowledge required to improve it, if anyone could add to the many empty and underdeveloped sections or remove any false or misleading sections it would be awesome.

Bengali people collage[edit]

Collage in Bengali people[edit]

There is an ongoing discussion about list of people in the collage at Bengali people. ~ nafSadh did say 22:12, 1 April 2015 (UTC)


There is no discussion or promotion. Have we adopted it? Are we running a pilot? @Nafsadh and Kmzayeem: Aditya(talkcontribs) 06:41, 10 April 2015 (UTC)

We should run the pilot. Lets's start the project in the talk page. We can run a promotion on BDPLACE right after we are done with Bengali people collage. Meanwhile, lets prepare for it. I have also been formulating a BDMOS. I'll put that forward later. ~ nafSadh did say 12:18, 10 April 2015 (UTC)
Just noticed the discussion at WT:NCGN got closed due to the lack of participation. However, the proposals there were quite useful. I suggest we should run the pilot based on those proposals and then file a new final draft at the NCGN. --Zayeem (talk) 10:41, 11 April 2015 (UTC)

Bengali Script[edit]

Apparently Arr4 added a thing called WP:BENGALISCRIPT, which is copied from WP:INDICSCRIPT, without consensus. This is an incident which if escalated should be an ANI. Note that, WikiProject India adopted a policy to not use Indic scripts in the lede, while WikiProject Bangladesh has a different norm. --nafSadh did say 15:16, 18 April 2015 (UTC)

Lets adopt BDPLACE[edit]

Request for Comment on WP:BDPLACE

There is a generic conventions for geographic names. But that is not clear enough for places in Bangladesh. That is why a WP:BDPLACE is proposed and it is time to adopt it.

A discussion is taking place here and an RfC is made. Please participate. nafSadh did say 22:14, 18 April 2015 (UTC)

Peer review[edit]

Wikipedia:Peer review/Panta bhat/archive1 is on. The article is very near to a GA, I believe. Aditya(talkcontribs) 04:48, 20 April 2015 (UTC)


There is a discussion currently at Talk:Stranded Pakistanis in Bangladesh#Requested move 29 April 2015 over whether the title of the article should be renamed. Users who are interested in giving their point of view can participate there. Thanks, Mar4d (talk) 13:18, 30 April 2015 (UTC)
