My recent reverts[edit]

I have been reverting additions of unsourced and poorly sourced material over the last few days. Those additions were combined with edits that removed valid maintenance tags (citation requests) without addressing the issue which caused the request. Please can we discuss these matters here. Thanks and not edit war on the article. - Sitush (talk) 21:04, 19 September 2011 (UTC)

Edit wars[edit]

Despite providing valid sources, which are not self-published as claimed by Sitush (talk; he has been reverting my claims. I kindly ask him to verify the authenticity of my sources and not declare his judgements without any research. Varanwal (talk) 14:55, 23 September 2011 (UTC)

Baranwal Chandrika. 3 (22 ed.). Gorakhpur, India: Barnwal Vaishya Mahasabha and similar: look at the publisher. It is an advocacy group for the Barnwals, which means that the source needs to be treated with considerable care. We would much prefer independent sources, per WP:RS. Are there any such sources for any non-trivial information?
The list of last names and of gotras seem to be trivial, with the former being particularly so because it does not include all such names and those which it does include may not be restricted in use solely to the Barnwal community. Indeed, it is arguable that because the list of names is incomplete then it might even constitute undue weight.
The information about Abirhan is excessive given that there is a separate article about him. If the list of names is removed then the Abirhan content dominates the article, which seems also to be undue weight. - Sitush (talk) 15:18, 23 September 2011 (UTC)

Assessment comment[edit]

The comment(s) below were originally left at Talk:Barnwal/Comments, and are posted here for posterity. Following several discussions in past years, these subpages are now deprecated. The comments may be irrelevant or outdated; if so, please feel free to remove this section.

This article provides good background information about an Indian community Barnwal but it can be further improved. Few of areas, article needs attention are
  • citation from reliable sources
  • better layout with sub headings.
  • wikification. e.g. avoid decorative words, italic fonts for Indian names, etc.
  • putting internet link within article negatively affects, they should be provided in external link section, mentioning them in main body completely unnecessary
  • lacks information about how a person uniquely identified of Barnwal when generic surnames such as Lal, Kumar, etc are used.
