@ Sitush[edit]

I have already provided the references and details of books that have ISBN. The references are authentic and verifiable. Both the authors have significant global acknowledgement. Jawahar Lal Nehru, author of his autobiography, being the first prime minister of India.

Kindly let me know what is your specific concern. Seems like you come up with a new reason every time I clarify the earlier reason for revertal. Being more specific will help.

The article List of Kauls has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

kaul is not a community.it is a surname of the kashmiri pandits.we already have a article list of kashmiri pandits.some of these names are there

While all 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.

Kaul[edit]

I have reverted you again at Kaul. The sources that you provide are either too vague or not reliable - see WP:RS and WP:Citing sources for some help with these issues. In addition, we do not include scripts in the lead sections of India-related articles, and the list of notables that you included seemed mostly to be a breach of policies such as WP:BLP and WP:V. I think that if you read the various blue-linked items above then you may understand better how we function here. Thanks. - Sitush (talk) 13:49, 26 February 2012 (UTC)

And now I have had to do it again. You were asked to discuss your contributions and you were specifically told, for example, that we do not use Indic scripts in the lead section. I think it best to make you aware of the general sanctions that apply to Indian caste/community articles. Please see the notice below. - Sitush (talk) 19:30, 7 March 2012 (UTC)
The Wikipedia community has permitted administrators to impose discretionary sanctions on any editor who is active on any page about social groups, explicitly including caste associations and political parties, related to India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Nepal. Discretionary sanctions can be used against an editor who repeatedly or seriously fails to adhere to the purpose of Wikipedia, any expected standards of behavior, or any normal editorial process. If you engage in further inappropriate behavior in this area, you may be placed under sanctions, which can include blocks, a revert limitation, or an article ban. The discussion leading to the imposition of these sanctions can be read here.

Please familiarise yourself with the information page at Wikipedia:General sanctions.

March 2012[edit]

You have been blocked temporarily from editing for edit warring, as you did at Kaul. Once the block has expired, you are welcome to make useful contributions. If you would like to be unblocked, you may appeal this block by adding the text {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}}, but you should read the guide to appealing blocks first.

During a dispute, you should first try to discuss controversial changes and seek consensus. If that proves unsuccessful, you are encouraged to seek dispute resolution, and in some cases it may be appropriate to request page protection. -- Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 14:02, 8 March 2012 (UTC)

You have added material, have had it contested and reverted, and then edit-warred to put it back again. You must not do that. Once your block expires you must discuss it on the article's Talk page and get a consensus supporting you before adding it again. If you continue to edit-war after your block has expired, you will be blocked for longer, or perhaps even topic-banned from editing the article in accordance with the notice shown above. -- Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 14:05, 8 March 2012 (UTC)

PS: You might care to have a read of WP:BRD and follow its guidelines - you have Boldly added content, had it Reverted, and now you must Discuss before adding it again. -- Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 14:08, 8 March 2012 (UTC)

Request reason:

Based on the concerns raised by Sitush, I have already provided the ISBN for the reference books. Sitush's concern that the sources are not suitable is unjustified. Please refer ISBN and other linked wiki articles to my update on 'Kaul'. I feel that Sitush is targetting certain specific article types by certain specific groups and communities, & feel that this is vandalism. Look forward to your feedback. Pls take some time to personally look at my 'Kaul' update and provide your inputs.

Decline reason:

I am declining your unblock request because it does not address the reason for your block, or because it is inadequate for other reasons. To be unblocked, you must convince the reviewing administrator(s) that
  • the block is not necessary to prevent damage or disruption to Wikipedia, or
  • the block is no longer necessary because you
    1. understand what you have been blocked for,
    2. will not continue to cause damage or disruption, and
    3. will make useful contributions instead.
Please read the guide to appealing blocks for more information.   An optimist on the run! 16:19, 8 March 2012 (UTC)

If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first, then use the {{unblock}} template again. If you make too many unconvincing or disruptive unblock requests, you may be prevented from editing this page until your block has expired.

This is not the place to continue your content dispute - the place to discuss that is on the article Talk page once you are unblocked. You are blocked because you edit-warred to insert your content after it had been disputed, and you must not do that *even if you are right*. What you must do to get unblocked is agree to not reinsert your new material until after you have discussed the reasons why it was removed (there are details on the Talk page, and it is not because you "did not provide an ISBN") and gained a consensus to reinsert it. If you agree to that, I'll be happy to unblock you - but be warned that if you continue to edit-war without addressing all of the concerns properly and getting a consensus, you will be quickly reblocked -- Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 16:15, 8 March 2012 (UTC)

Oh, and you must also commit to follow WP:AGF and cease accusing other editors of vandalism -- Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 16:16, 8 March 2012 (UTC)

Reply[edit]

Understand your view point Boing!
My concern remains that if certain sections of the article or certain smaller issues were a concern, only those relavant portions should/could have been deleted by Sitush, not the entire content that I created. For example, my quote of JawaharLal Nehru's autobiography (Toward Freedom) on his ancestor being a 'Kaul' from Kashmir, is both verifiable and a good source. However, fail to see the reason why that was removed by Sitush. To me still sounds like high headedness because perhaps Sitush got here before I did (wikipedia, I mean), & is in no way a fair method of communicating concerns.

Will look into his concerns and see what are the exact changes required. Offcourse have ample more sources to provide to support the article and can be discussed in detail. Feel that this article needs protection till I am able to slowly build a detailed version, which may take a few weeks.

It doesn't need protection, it just needs you to discuss the changes you wish to make on the Talk page, ideally one at a time, and engage in the discussion of the objections to them and get a consensus to add them (for example, what you say about JawaharLal Nehru's autobiography should be discussed over there). If you have reliable sources and your proposed content is in keeping with Wikipedia policies and community decisions, you should have no problems. Anyway, if you agree not to edit-war, but to discuss these changes first and get consensus, then please post another unblock request and I'll be happy to unblock you. -- Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 18:50, 8 March 2012 (UTC)

REPLY to Boing! Zebedee _ Kaul Article related
[edit]

From what I understand ... you'd like me to enter one point at a time and substantiate each one with relavant references and sources (I thought I already did that). Sounds reasonable and can work it out. However, have done some browsing on the wiki and feel that the restrictions on Indic scripts is an impractical request. Can enter that discussion also once unblocked. However, my issue with Sitush remains ... (& not restricted to the Jawahar Lal Nehru Autobiography incident).
MY CONCERNS
1. User Sitush says "Kaul is not a community but a Surname" - this is an incorrect statement and presumptive. Kauls are a community & a surname, which is a common phenomenon in India. (Kaul community includes several surnames and social orders, branching originally from the Kaul Clan. These are called Krams.)
'2. User Sitush questions the 'Notable Kauls' that I mentioned in the article, calling them of 'dubious merit & veracity. Strongly object to this statement, specially when it involves the first prime minister of India. I think we need an 'unconditional apology' here (or maybe we can skip the apologies). Mani Kaul (also mentioned on my Kaul Page), is a prominent Filmmaker in India, & has won several national level awards. For others like Kailas Nath (KN) Kaul (link also provided within Wiki), has 5 plant species and a 1 Genus named after his Surname Kaul. There are two globally known institutes named after KN Kaul, & I still wonder why Sitush says these are of Dubious Merit. All this, when specific articles about these well known Kauls are already available in Wikipedia
3. Sitush also mentions that "Dewans' book is a general guide to J&K & I am unsure of his qualifications". Well, Parvez Dewan is a IAS Officer (Indian Administrative Services Officer), a rank and posting equivalent to the secretary of state. He graduated from St Stephen's in New Delhi (one of India's premier colleges), & @ Cambridge was awarded the Jennings prize for highest marks in class (1987). He was the Divisional commissioner of Kashmir, India @ the time of writing the book being referred to. He was also an editor in several notable Indian newspapers - 'Hindustan Times' & 'Times of India' both of which are amongst the most circulated papers in India. He also extensively wrote in magazines like India Today & Stardust. His name and listing can be verified on the Goverment of India website http://persmin.nic.in/civillist/AsOnToday/AgeListCL.asp?Slab=8&Cadre=JK&AsOnDate=01/01/2010. Relavant ISBN & Publishing House information was provided.
4. He mentions "For issues with linking, please read WP:OVERLINK" - I was already aware of the overlink issue and am sure my article was not overlinked. So, what is the reason for this comment is not clear.
5. For the "no flags" rule, please see WP:MOSFLAG, &
For unacceptability of using a last name to determine caste, please consider WP:BLP, WP:V and WP:OR
--> Agree with his caste comments, & this could have been rectified with a mild edit from Sitush, changing the word "Sub caste" in my article to community/clan, or simply deleting it.
Deleting my complete article based on the above two points (& perhaps a few other minor ones), for which Sitush could have simply removed the relavant sections, is nothing less than vandalism. It is equivalent to destroying relavant information on Wiki without having the proper reason and ample knowledge or understanding of wiki policy (or its correct applicability in this case). Thats why I raised my concern.
Your expert comments pls .. Ambar 18:09, 9 March 2012 (UTC) @ Naradhiwas Road

No, sorry, you misunderstand. What I want you do to is agree to change your approach to editing as outlined below...
  1. Agree not to edit-war (see WP:Edit warring)
  2. Agree to seek consensus on the article Talk page before making any more changes (see WP:Consensus)
  3. Agree to stop accusing others of vandalism (see WP:Vandalism)
  4. Agree to assume good faith (see WP:Assume good faith)
  5. Agree not to adopt an adversarial attitude to other posters (see WP:BATTLEFIELD)
Once you agree to all of those conditions, you can be unblocked. Then after you are unblocked, you should discuss your desired changes *on the talk page of the article*, which is at Talk:Kaul. You need to discuss them with the other editors there, not with me here - I will take no part in the content discussion or consensus decision myself. If you agree to the 5 conditions above, post a new unblock request confirming so, and I (or someone else) will unblock you. Alternatively, you can wait until the block expires naturally and then discuss your proposed content at Talk:Kaul. But either way, if you fail to adhere to any of the above conditions, you will quickly be blocked again, for longer (and possibly indefinitely) -- Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 18:44, 9 March 2012 (UTC)

You have been asked repeatedly to discuss the material you wish to add to Kaul on the article Talk page and get a consensus for adding it *before* you do so. You have also been blocked once for edit-warring over that article. If you agree to stop what you are doing, discuss it on the Talk page, and wait for a consensus before adding material to the article again, I will be happy to unblock you -- Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 19:08, 11 March 2012 (UTC)
-- reply to Boing ! --
I have already discussed this matter on the talk page and changed the content that was contested. Pls explain 'wait for a consensus' ? What is the method of getting a consensus, is there a vote, or do I have to wait for some confirmation process to happen ? Its not clear. Ambar 01:36, 12 March 2012 (UTC)

While discussing it you also need to stop re-adding it, as that counts as edit-warring (see WP:EW). Consensus is arrived at by reasoning rather than by voting, and there is no formal confirmation (see WP:Consensus). Ideally, the editors in dispute will be able to reach an agreement based on Wikipedia policies. But if, after discussion, they cannot, they can ask for a 3rd party to evaluate the discussion and judge the consensus - perhaps by appeal to a relevant project noticeboard. The consensus would then be decided on the arguments made, and they would be weighted by support in Wikipedia policy. If that fails, the next thing to try would be to follow the dispute resolution steps at WP:DR. Best thing to do for now is discuss the points of disagreement at the article Talk page, try to resolve each point individually, and see how that goes. -- Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 09:04, 12 March 2012 (UTC)

--reply to Boing!-- Let me try and add one point at a time & then see the response from the other user. Should work.

OK, sounds good - discussing one point at a time on the Talk page, and only editing the article when you have a consensus, would be a great way to do it. On those grounds, I have unblocked your account. -- Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 15:05, 12 March 2012 (UTC)

A suggestion or two[edit]

Hi, I've had a chat with The Blade of the Northern Lights because I think that I am letting you down with my explanations at Talk:Kaul. We both think that you are well-intentioned and I am convinced that I am making a poor job of assisting you. Blade has suggested that perhaps you might benefit from some further guidance which, if offered by someone other than me, might make the issues more clear. We have a form of mentorship available that attracts people with a particular interest (and, hopefully, skills) in guiding newer contributors. I have certainly seen some people really benefit from it and go on to be good and productive editors. So, my two suggestions:

  1. Would you consider the scheme outlined at Wikipedia:Adopt-a-user ? No-one is forcing you to do so but it might be of much help.
  2. Would it be ok if I move the "draft" that you posted a couple of hours ago at Talk:Kaul. I'd put it into your WP:Sandbox and it can be worked on there - you can invite anyone to view it, to comment on it etc (including any mentor) - and it would be a more suitable temporary home for your ideas than an article talk page. The Kaul article itself is not going to be deleted any time soon, despite its complete lack of sources. I will add a source or two later for the existing statements in order to ensure that, and the contents of your sandbox can be moved, copied or merged into it as appropriate when everyone is happy (including you!).

I'll add this page to my watchlist so that I'll see any response that you make here. - Sitush (talk) 17:24, 13 March 2012 (UTC)


Reply to 'A Suggestion or Two' --

Okay. Thanks. Lets start with the Sandbox (not too sure how that works though). Will put my ID up for adoption soon (have put a request on 'Wehwalts' talk page). Ambar 04:38, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

I have made a couple of initial suggestions on your sandbox talk page. I could fix things for you but doing it this way means that you will learn a few things, which is never a bad idea! - Sitush (talk) 10:24, 24 March 2012 (UTC)

Kashmiri Pandit article reformatted[edit]

Improvements required in Content, Flow & Formatting. I think this article is too inclined towards the history of Kashmir & how Kashmiri Pandits were forced to leave the valley. Feel that this article needs better balance, & that can be done only via a mjor reformatting and editing of content. I plan to create a draft in my sandbox area and would request users to have a look (maybe another day or so). We need to talk more specifically about the Kashmiri Pandit community, their specific history (& not the whole history of Kashmir), & their customs, music, literature, famous kings / rulers etc. A lot of content (irrelevant) would need removal and more relavant and sourced contect would need to be added. Ambar'Ambar 01:04, 22 March 2012 (UTC)

Signatures[edit]

Hello, Ambar. Wanted to get this off Sitush's pages since Sitush is feeling a bit fragile these days. Oh, I think if you look at the search bar for html colours or something as found in WP you'll find colour guides. You need those to choose colours you like. Then you must - sorry, this is all I know best to do - find an editor whose signature you like very much and note the html code that lays out that signature. You'll use that for 'inspiration'. Then you may lay out your sig and the colours you'll need. Remember not to simply copy another editor's unique colour or style layout; it'll come to you. Just be aware that you have to go to your preferences page, go down to the signature area and enter the complete HTML code you've got up for yourself. Also there is, I think, a 250-character limit there. Have a gander at my signature if you like, all you need to do is notice the html codes for editors' sigs when you go to edit a talk page. Good luck.—Djathinkimacowboy 17:02, 22 March 2012 (UTC)

I tried some changes in 'My Preference' page and managed to get the link to my talk page back in my signatures. Will try the color thing shortly. Much appreciate your feedback & thanks.'Ambar (talk) 05:44, 24 March 2012 (UTC)
You're welcome. It works wonders and gives you a geat signature no one will forget.—Djathinkimacowboy 19:37, 24 March 2012 (UTC)

Stop it[edit]

Look, I realise that you are new but I am getting fed up of asking you to stop posting article drafts on talk pages - they really mess up the page (especially the section headings). I am going to revert your latest one, at Talk:Kashmiri Pandit. - Sitush (talk) 17:47, 24 March 2012 (UTC)

TD, the sandboxed article exists because Ambar wiki was making changes to the "live" article that were problematic. IIRC, one specific problem was WP:SYNTHESIS.

Hi Tito, since we have reliable sources sighting S.K. Kaul as a Kashmiri Pandit, shouldn't we be allowed to list him under the List of Kashmiri Pandits. We have a discussion on the List of Kashmiri Pandits page. While I agree that self identification improves credibility of claim, still feel that it should not always be mandatory, specially when sighted by so many sources. Would love to have your honest opinion on this one at the talk page. -Ambar wiki (talk) 10:46, 4 July 2012 (UTC)

Hi Sitush, understand the copyvio and will be more careful. For unsourced material, are you referring to the 'Sufiana Gharana'? There is a citation to that in citation No.1. I will repeat that in the appropriate place in the article. Let me know if there is anything else that was unsourced and contentious -Ambar wiki (talk) 17:58, 4 July 2012 (UTC)

MirrorLink - Article for Creation[edit]

I have created another AfC MirrorLink. Kindly take some time to review and leave your comments. I am a little surprised that such a widely spoken about technology with numerous google search results is still not up at Wiki.

Revert at Kaul[edit]

Hi, I was not aware that Jais Chauhan had copied your draft to Kaul without agreement. I notice that you did not object to that action and subsequently edited the mainspace version. This is really not the way to do things. JC has been blocked for their actions across numerous articles and was a quacking sockpuppet. I have reverted the article to its state prior to the unattributed copy/paste of JC. You are well aware of my issues regarding it, including the authority of Pervez Dewan. - Sitush (talk) 23:27, 28 August 2012 (UTC)

Hi, yes were discussing the draft and I did observe it for a week before making any edits (mostly reverts) on it. I thought you intended to edit it in mainspace. Anyways, the sandbox exists (or it was cut/pasted?) and will wait for further comments in the talk. Personally, I was a little surprised too and left a message JCs talk page (or some other talk page, can't remember clearly) -Ambar (talk) 18:24, 3 September 2012 (UTC)

Pandit[edit]

Hi Ambar, any chance of you getting hold of a copy of some of the surrounding pages of the source referred to in this edit? What the source is claimed to say is interesting and it raises all sorts of potential issues. For example, whether Kashmiri Pandit should be merged into Saraswat Brahmin, or vice versa. Thanks, - Sitush (talk) 12:40, 29 December 2012 (UTC)

Hi Sitush, have been inactive for a while except perhaps updating a few music related articles Abhay Sopori. I think your comments above raise an interesting thought & would require the involvement of someone who knows more about Saraswat Brahmins as a whole. My take on this would be that the two articles 'Saraswat Brahmins' & 'Kashmiri Pandits' can not be merged. However, Kashmiri Pandits, being a subset of Saraswat Brahmins, should be mentioned somewhere within SBrahms article (I believe there currently is a link already). What I was really surprised to see was the poor condition of the SBrahms article on wiki. It lists (as of today) only a fraction of all the communities in India which are a part of the larger SBrahm community. Also the lack of adequate content in the article is rather shocking, considering that the community is mostly well to do and educated & rather 'particular' about their SBrahmic roots.The other thing that I found missing in the article is the reason why the community is still identifiable (customs, rituals, beliefs, unique practices) are not really explained properly. We would require a collaborated effort to really improve the Saraswat Brahmin article. -Ambar (talk) 19:33, 3 March 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for uploading File:Naveeda Mehdi 2.png. I noticed that this file is being used under a claim of fair use. However, I think that the way it is being used fails the first non-free content criterion. This criterion states that files used under claims of fair use may have no free equivalent; in other words, if the file could be adequately covered by a freely-licensed file or by text alone, then it may not be used on Wikipedia. If you believe this file is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and add the text {{di-replaceable fair use disputed|<your reason>}} below the original replaceable fair use template, replacing <your reason> with a short explanation of why the file is not replaceable.
  2. On the file discussion page, write a full explanation of why you believe the file is not replaceable.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media fully satisfy our non-free content criteria.

Asian 10,000 Challenge invite[edit]

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Asia/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge and Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like South East Asia, Japan/China or India etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. At some stage we hope to run some contests to benefit Asian content, a destubathon perhaps, aimed at reducing the stub count would be a good place to start, based on the current Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon which has produced near 200 articles in just three days. If you would like to see this happening for Asia, and see potential in this attracting more interest and editors for the country/countries you work on please sign up and being contributing to the challenge! This is a way we can target every country of Asia, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant! Thank you. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 01:07, 20 October 2016 (UTC)
