Storm of the month
Hurricane Frank is the storm of the Month.

Hurricane Frank

Tropical Depression Nine-E formed on August 21 south of the Gulf of Tehuantepec. It developed into a tropical storm the following morning. On August 23, Frank continued to intensify, but later faced shear and entered a period of weakening. However, on August 24, as shear decreased, it began to reorganize and strengthen again, becoming a hurricane on August 25. Two days later, Frank weakened into a tropical storm. Rapidly weakening overnight, NHC issued that it have been degraded into an remnant low. The area of low pressure associated with Frank was absorbed with another area of disturbed weather which later developed into Tropical Depression Ten-E.

Throughout Central America, Hurricane Frank produced torrential rain that resulted in at least 30 fatalities, most of which took place in Nicaragua and Honduras. In Guatemala alone, damage from the system was estimated to be up to $500 million. In Mexico, six deaths were reported. A total 30 homes were destroyed with 26 others damaged. Two major roads were damaged with another road blocked due to a landslides. Several rivers overflowed their banks as well. Losses from the storms totaled millions of dollars. Water Currents form a nearby volcano were damaged as well.


Other tropical cyclone activity

  • Atlantic Ocean– In the Atlantic Ocean, around three storms and one depression formed. Tropical Depression Four early on August 2. Early the next day, the depression strengthened further into a tropical storm and was named "Colin". Tropical Storm Colin was downgraded to a tropical depression late morning on August 8. Tropical Depression 5 formed on August 10, with no improvement, it dissipated within 24 hours. Tropical Depression Six developed near the Cape Verde Islands on August 21, the first of the series of Cape Verde-type storms. On August 22 the system attained tropical storm status, thus earning the name "Danielle" The next day it attained hurricane status, becoming the second of the season and strengthened further to a Category 2 hurricane. On August 27, Hurricane Danielle strengthened to a Category 3 hurricane, becoming the first major hurricane of the season, and further strengthened to a Category 4 hurricane shortly after.Danielle later weakened to a Category 3, then Category 2 hurricane, and later became a Category 1 Hurricane due to an eyewall replacement cycle, while avoiding land areas. It became extratropical early on August 31 southeast of Newfoundland without having directly impacted land. It was fully absorbed by a larger extratropical low on September 4 over Greenland. On August 25, Tropical Depression 7 formed east of Hurricane Danielle. Later that day it was upgraded to Tropical Storm Earl. On August 29, 2010 Earl strengthened to become the season's third hurricane. Earl then quickly intensified to become the season's second major hurricane on August 30. The hurricane weakened to a Category 3 hurricane after an eyewall replacement cycle before becoming a Category 4 again. Earl made landfall in the Canadian Maritime Provinces, twice in Nova Scotia and once in Prince Edward Island (PEI) at hurricane intensity. On August 30, when gale-force winds and better organization resulted in the development of Tropical Storm Fiona, skipping tropical depression status. It struggled to develop further, however, as it was hindered by high wind shear from the outflow of the much larger and stronger Earl.
  • Eastern Pacific Ocean– Three depressions formed in the Month of August. A tropical depression formed on August 5. slowly intensified, reaching tropical storm status on August 6. On August 9, it was downgraded into a tropical depression. On August 10th Estelle dissipated. Tropical Depression Eight-E formed on August 20. However, the depression weakened slightly overnight. The depression continued to weaken and the National Hurricane Center issued its final advisory on August 22. Tropical Depression Nine-E formed on August 21 south of the Gulf of Tehuantepec. It developed into a tropical storm the following morning. On August 25 it became a hurricane. Two days later, Frank weakened into a tropical storm. Rapidly weakening overnight, NHC issued that it have been degraded into an remnant low. Throughout Central America, Hurricane Frank produced torrential rain that resulted in at least 30 fatalities, most of which took place in Nicaragua and Honduras. In Guatemala alone, damage from the system was estimated to be up to $500 million. In Mexico, six deaths were reported. A total 30 homes were destroyed with 26 others damaged. Two major roads were damaged with another road blocked due to a landslides. Several rivers overflowed their banks as well. Losses from the storms totaled millions of dollars. Water Currents form a nearby volcano were damaged as well.
  • Western Pacific Ocean– Eight depression formed in the Month of August. Early on August 4, After Domeng, had merged with the low pressure area PAGASA reported that Domeng had intensified into a tropical storm and reached its 10-minute peak sustained windspeeds of 65 km/h (40 mph). In Luzon, heavy rain produced by the storm led to a few landslides, prompting road closures. Offshore, three people drowned after their boat capsized amidst rough seas produced by Domeng. Later that day PAGASA reported that Domeng had weakened into a tropical depression, before reporting early the next day that after it had passed through the Babuyan Islands, Domeng had weakened into an area of low pressure. Early on August 6, the JTWC reported that a tropical disturbance formed within the monsoon gyre about 800 km (500 mi) southeast of Taipei, Taiwan. During that day the JMA started to monitor the depression before the JTWC designated it as Tropical Depression 05W. The depression was then upgraded into a tropical storm by the JMA and named "Dianmu". After moving northward for several days, it turned northeastward and struck southern South Korea. Dianmu weakened as it crossed the Korean peninsula and emerged into the Sea of Japan. Heavy rains produced by the storm resulted in one fatality after a cargo ship sank amidst rough seas produced by the storm. This marked the first time in nine years that a rain-related fatality took place in the capital city of Seoul. More than 3,000 homes were destroyed in eastern China after heavy rains from the outer bands of Dianmu struck the region. The storm made landfall on Japan; exiting the country within five hours. Heavy rains were reported through out the islands. Nearly a week after the two ships sank off the coast of the Philippines, 31 crew members remain missing and are presumed dead after numerous coast guard rescue attempts. Damage from the storm on Jeju Island amounted to 5 billion won ($4.2 million USD). Early on August 17, an area of low pressure formed about 415 km (260 mi), northeast of Tuguegarao City, Cagayan. On the evening of August 18, as it crossed Babuyan Islands, the disturbance's low level center (LLC) weakened due to land interaction and high vertical wind shear. It regenerated on August 20 when it was located about 280 km (175 miles), to the west of Dagupan City, Pangasinan. Early on the next day, the LLCC of the disturbance became partially exposed due to a Tropical Upper Tropospheric Trough (TUTT) that was developing off Luzon at that time. On the afternoon of that day, Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) upgraded the system into a tropical depression. The next day, they further upgraded the depression into a tropical storm and named it "Mindulle". At the same time, the JTWC reported that Tropical Depression 06W has intensified into a tropical storm. Thousands of fishermen were urged to return to port. According to Vietnamese officials, contact was lost with 10 vessels on August 24 and the 137 fishermen on the ships were listed as missing. Rainfall, peaking at 297 mm (11.7 in),[59] led to significant flooding and agricultural losses. A Tropical depression formed on August 26, it survived for three days with no change in strength. it rapidly traveled northwest and dissipated on August 29. On August 28, the JMA upgraded the system to a Tropical Storm and was named "Lionrock". Early of september 1, Lionrock made a Fujiwhara effect with Namtheun, whilst Lionrock maintained it's strength while Namtheun was absorbed. Lionrock made landfall on the east coast of Guangdong Province, China, just north of the city of Shantou. It then started to dissipate and weaken into a tropical storm and moved over Guangzhou, Guangdong's capital. Lionrock soon lost it's intensity as it went over Guangdong. Midday of August 29, the Joint Typhoon Warning Centre (JTWC) issued a Tropical Cyclone Formation Alert (TCFA) on the system as a Low Level Circulation Centre had become organized. On the morning of that same day, the JTWC announced that the system had quickly developed into a tropical storm and assigned the designation "08W". Intensification continued, then by midday of August 30, the JMA reported that the depression had intensified into a tropical storm and assigned it the international designation "Kompasu". In addition, PAGASA also announced that the low pressure in the northeast of Batanes had formed and assigned it a local name, "Glenda". At the same time, the JTWC also upgraded Kompasu into a category 1 typhoon. On the next day, Kompasu crossed the island of Kadena and rapidly intensified into a category 2 typhoon equivalent. On September 1, Kompasu was upgraded by JTWC as a category 3 typhoon equivalent, becoming the strongest typhoon of the season. The storm later weakened to a category one typhoon in the Yellow Sea, before veering northeast and making landfall on Ganghwa Island, northwest of Incheon and Seoul, killing at least four people.[61] Kompasu was the strongest tropical storm to hit the Seoul metropolitan area in 15 years. On August 27, an extensive cloud formed in the waters east of Taiwan. On August 28, it developed into a low pressure. At 18:00, near Yaeyama Islands, the Japan Meteorological Agency upgraded the low pressure into a tropical depression. There were two tropical cyclones developing on both sides of 09W (namely Lionrock and Kompasu), and Typhoon Kompasu had a relatively stronger intensity, causing 09W moved southwest to Taiwan Strait. On August 30, it caused heavy rain in northern Taiwan. Taiwan's Central Weather Bureau could only issue a tropical depression warning since it had not strengthened to a tropical storm. At 20:00, 09W suddenly intensified into a tropical storm, and was named Namtheun. However, due to the development of another stronger tropical storm Lionrock at South China Sea, the increase of intensity of Namtheun was difficult. In the evening hours of August 31, Namtheun weakened into a tropical depression north of Taiwan Strait. Whilst Lionrock maintained it's strength while Namtheun was absorbed. Late on August 28, the Central Pacific Hurricane Center reported that an area of low pressure system associated with a tropical disturbance had developed about 1,000 mi (1,600 km) to the southwest of Honolulu in Hawaii. Isolated thunderstorms were developing in association with the small low-level circulation. During the next day the disturbance moved towards the west and moved into the western Pacific where the JMA immediately designated it as a tropical depression. The depression was expected to bring inclement weather to Majauro and nearby atolls, although the system significantly weakened before reaching the area.

Member of the month

Cyclone barnstar

The October member of the month is CrazyC83. Since joining the project near its inception, CrazyC83 has been involved in bringing twenty two articles to Good Article status and one article to Featured Article Status. Not only this, he is been working with the 2010 Atlantic hurricane season 24/7. Our Favorite member Jason Rees looks like he has gone on a short break with the west, but he still continues with the east.


Storm Basics

  • A tropical cyclone is a storm system characterized by a large low-pressure center and numerous thunderstorms that produce strong winds and heavy rain.
  • While tropical cyclones can produce extremely powerful winds and torrential rain, they are also able to produce high waves and damaging storm surge as well as spawning tornadoes.
  • The term "tropical" refers to both the geographic origin of these systems, which form almost exclusively in tropical regions of the globe, and their formation in maritime tropical air masses.
  • Many tropical cyclones develop when the atmospheric conditions around a weak disturbance in the atmosphere are favorable. The background environment is modulated by climatological cycles and patterns such as the Madden-Julian oscillation, El Niño-Southern Oscillation, and the Atlantic multidecadal oscillation.

Postpone the October Hurricane Herald

One is already in construction made special for October 5, 2005, being the quinquennial edition (5 years of the WikiProject Tropical Cyclones). There are plans to release two October newsletters, 32A being the Quinquennial Edition and 32B being the normal newsletter, released around October 20. Can you delay yours until October 20, 2010, please? Also, the writing of this one and the September one is atrocious. Certain editors who have been with the project for the 5 years, including me are working at this sandbox. You can watch its construction, but this newsletter is important to me and others who have dedicated years to the project. Also, just do us a favor and makes yours Newsletter 32B, October 20, 2010. Thanks.Mitch32(Transportation Historian) 21:32, 17 September 2010 (UTC)

Yea, I was gonna post here as well. Don't forget my earlier advice. The monthly newsletter should be much shorter. Keep the storm summaries short, and be sure to include info about the project in general. --Hurricanehink (talk) 00:51, 19 September 2010 (UTC)

VicSRC article

Hi, I just reverted your reversion of 6 edits by User:Mshellie to the article VicSRC. You called his/her edits "excessive vandalism". Then, you went and added an "Only Warning" to his/her talk page, for "blanking and/or removal of content." That tag is wrong for 2 different reasons. First, it's factually incorrect that Mshellie was blanking/removing content--in fact, s/he was adding content, including what s/he believes are reliably sources. While they may well not be reliable, and while the article may well not survive the AfD, it is absolutely wrong to stop someone from stopping to try to add info to an article under review. Second, there is absolutely no justification for jumping immediately to an only warning, even if s/he had blanked the page. There is a reason we use a set of 4 increasingly severe warnings; jumping to level 4 is warranted in only the most extreme situations (and I would say that page blanking could only be an immediate only warning if the person was blanking something like WP:ANI or a core policy page). I humbly request that you officially redact the warning on Mshellie's page. I commend him/her for trying to save the article, even if I believe it will eventually be deleted. If Mshellie is capable of adding enough reliable sources, then great--we have a good article on WP. If not, then so be it; but the very fact that Mshellie is willing to go to so much work implies that this is the sort of person we want to keep, not frighten away with unreasonable warnings. Qwyrxian (talk) 12:00, 27 September 2010 (UTC)

Alright, I do now see that Mshellie did one thing wrong in removing the maintainence templates; however, since this is apparently a new user, I'm not sure it rises to the level of vandalism; even if it did, only the one edit should have been made. Qwyrxian (talk) 12:30, 27 September 2010 (UTC)
Ah, yes, I did not realize that you were new, since you're using Twinkle (something that usually takes people a little while to find and start using). No problem--just be careful when you're using Twinkle (or, other tools in the future, if you ever take them up). I use both Twinkle and Huggle, and it's very easy to get in the "groove" and start shutting down vandalize, only to go just a little too fast and miss-tag something. However, one thing I do recommend is that, until you are really comfortable with the vandalism criteria, that you never jump to only warnings. The only time I go straight from zero/one warning to the "Only" warning is for a clear, unequivocal attack made in clear bad faith, such as if a user were to change a living person's page to include numerous racial/sexual/etc. slurs or the like. If you ever have any questions, feel free to drop by my page--I'm not super experienced either, but I'm always happy to help. Qwyrxian (talk) 13:39, 27 September 2010 (UTC)

Risotto

My edit on Risotto wasn't vandalism, as I have explained in the discussion page. Please, be careful. Aelwyn (talk) 14:14, 28 September 2010 (UTC)

One of your userboxes

I was looking at your user page, and I noticed that you have a userbox that expresses hatred of a particular country. Some editors might consider such a statement offensive, since you're marking off an entire country with a really strong negative emotion. Some would say that such a userbox rises to the level of incivility. I'm on the fence about it myself, but you may want to consider removing it. Qwyrxian (talk) 11:36, 29 September 2010 (UTC)

About Your Reversions

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Secret_of_the_Golden_Flower shows this history item: "07:36, 3 October 2010 Anikingos (talk | contribs) (9,179 bytes) (Reverted 7 edits by 68.27.105.86.)"

I made the 7 edits you reverted. I also orignially wrote this article 4.5 years ago. I have practiced with the book that is the subject of the artilce for 35 years. The 7 edits corrected obvious mis-statements about the book and responded to some discussion ideas.

Can you please explain why you reverted the edits? Thank you. Kulalaw (talk) 00:10, 16 October 2010 (UTC)

Your explanation: "You removed all the references and typed your own sentences, how will i believe that it is true. It appeared like so i swiftly reverted it. Anirudh Emani" Swiftly indeed. I recommend you re-examine the edits: I added references and direct quotations from the book in response to comments. Your erroneous impressions determined that the article's content will perpetuate mis-statements about the book. Have you ever seen or read the book? I urge you to reconsider those edits and undo your reversions -- the choice is yours. Kulalaw (talk) 08:42, 16 October 2010 (UTC)

Finally: thank you for undoing the reversions, Anirudh: recognizing a mistake is a sign of maturity. Also, I appreciate your advice that I log in before making edits, and I will try to remember. Best wishes. Kulalaw (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 19:18, 16 October 2010 (UTC).

Typhoon Megi

Thanks. The Philippines impact section needs a major rewrite which I'll work on once the edits slow down a bit. Anikingos is adding in a lot of detail and sources which is really good but it's not really in any sort of coherent order. --Blackmane (talk) 09:44, 20 October 2010 (UTC)
What's really ironic is that I actually checked your username previously, but I totally forgot. In any case, I'll work on the impact section. Now that Megi is moving off somewhat, I think most of the news reports will shift to cleanup and relief work, so the additions to impacts will probably be less reported. That'll give me a chance to organise the section using the refs you've added in. --Blackmane (talk) 13:35, 20 October 2010 (UTC)
That's what being collaborative is about :) I did some fairly major restructuring to make the casualties section more readable. There was a lot of redundant reporting with some cases being mentioned twice and one that I had to remove (the one about the chld being electrocuted) because the source said nothing about it. I'll work on the previous section some more. If you could, you might want to start adding sources for the other countries that have been affected. China is about to be hit by Megi so reports will be showing up over the next few days. The Philippines angle is about as detailed as it really needs to be.--Blackmane (talk) 09:12, 21 October 2010 (UTC)
I've just picked up a bunch of reports off Xinhua.net and dropped the links on to my userpage. I'll put those up later tonight. Although the Chinese government does do a lot of state censorship of news, natural disasters like these are usually comprehensively covered. You might have a look at the South China Morning Post as well. --Blackmane (talk) 09:24, 21 October 2010 (UTC)
At the moment iut hasn't hit mainland China yet. It looks like it's still hovering in the South China Sea. Forecast is it will hit during the weekend or maybe Friday night, so I think about all we'll hear from China is preparation news. --Blackmane (talk) 09:37, 21 October 2010 (UTC)
There's potential that it will hit some nice warm water in the South China Sea and that it will re-intensify, will have to see in the next day or so --Blackmane (talk) 11:05, 21 October 2010 (UTC)
I'm no atmospheric or ocean scientist, but as I understand it, it's to do with various ocean currents in the area. This has an effect on the local climate and why the area generally has very mild winters. The southern chinese provinces generally have a very clement winter but summers can be very hot and humid. Winter arrives later in that area so I could understand if the waters would still be helpful to a hurricane --Blackmane (talk) 13:29, 21 October 2010 (UTC)

17W

FYI I believe the tropical depression that the JMA put on last night was a continuation of 17W since its only 23 degrees above where 17W was on the 00z advisory. As a result ive removed the infobox for the depression JMA put on last night and combined it with 17W.Jason Rees (talk) 01:37, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

Cyclone Giri

Hey, when you update information on tropical cyclone articles, as you did here, you have to update the text as well. It does no good when you just change a number and leave it in the edit summary. At the very least, you could put a little ref to the side of the new number, which would take one extra second. More ideal, you could take two extra seconds and put it in the lede. But most ideal, how hard is it to just update the prose of the article with the new death toll? Please be more careful next time, but thanks at least for keeping things up to date!

WikiCup 2010 October newsletter

Trophy.png

The 2010 WikiCup is over! It has been a long journey, but what has been achieved is impressive: combined, participants have produced over seventy featured articles, over five hundred good articles, over fifty featured lists, over one thousand one hundred "did you know" entries, in addition to various other pieces of recognised content. A full list (which has yet to be updated to reflect the scores in the final round) can be found here. Perhaps more importantly, we have our winner! The 2010 WikiCup champion is Colorado Sturmvogel_66 (submissions), with an unbelievable 4220 points in the final round. Second place goes to New Orleans TonyTheTiger (submissions), with 2260, and third to New South Wales Casliber (submissions), with 560. Congratulations to our other four finalists – War ensign of the German Empire Navy 1848-1852.svg White Shadows (submissions), Bennington Flag.svg William S. Saturn (submissions), Connecticut Staxringold (submissions) and Colombia ThinkBlue (submissions). Also, congratulations to Hungary Sasata (submissions), who withdrew from the competition with an impressive 2685 points earlier in this round.

Prizes will also be going to those who claimed the most points for different types of content in a single round. It was decided that the prizes would be awarded for those with the highest in a round, rather than overall, so that the finalists did not have an unfair advantage. Winning the featured article prize is New South Wales Casliber (submissions), for five featured articles in round 4. Winning the good article prize is Colorado Sturmvogel_66 (submissions), for eighty-one good articles in round 5. Winning the featured list prize is Connecticut Staxringold (submissions), for six featured lists in round 1. Winning the picture and sound award is Flag of St. Louis, Missouri.svg Jujutacular (submissions), for four featured pictures in round 3. Winning the topic award is Colorado Sturmvogel_66 (submissions), for forty-seven articles in various good topics in round 5. Winning the "did you know" award is New Orleans TonyTheTiger (submissions), for over one hundred did you knows is round 5. Finally, winning the in the news award is Republic of Ireland Candlewicke (submissions), for nineteen articles in the news in round three.

The WikiCup has faced criticism in the last month – hopefully, we will take something positive from it and create a better contest for next year. Like Wikipedia itself, the Cup is a work in progress, and ideas for how it should work are more than welcome on the WikiCup talk page and on the scoring talk page. Also, people are more than welcome to sign up for next year's competition on the signup page. Well done and thank you to everyone involved – the Cup has been a pleasure to run, and we, as judges, have been proud to be a part of it. We hope that next year, however the Cup is working, and whoever is running it, it will be back, stronger and more popular than ever. Until then, goodbye and happy editing!

WP:ITN/C

To be perfectly honest, most of the stories you read on CNN would fail WP:NOTNEWS if made into articles on Wikipedia, so if I might offer some advice for nominating at ITN: stick to stuff for which we already have well-written articles and is likely to be of huge significance. The Mexico explosion, for example, neither has an article, nor is likely to be of major interest or significance. StrPby (talk) 13:07, 15 November 2010 (UTC)

You also need to know that this and this (personal attack?) type of attitude is quite a bad step to start with, if you consider staying at ITN. Rehman 15:09, 15 November 2010 (UTC)
In defence of Ani, how the hell is that a personal attack? Not remotely close! So because he chose to oppose your nomination, he's got a "type of attitude"?! Wow. It seems to me, Rehman, that you probably need to read up a bit more about ITN (and indeed policies like , oh, consensus and NPA, which was not broken) yourself. StrPby (talk) 15:15, 15 November 2010 (UTC)
Thank you StrPby. Thank you very much. I never tried to attack someone personally in my whole life and i bet i would never think about doing it for the rest of my life. If you(Rehman) feel that i have attacked you, then im extremely sorry. But right now, to speak from my heart, this claim that i was attacking you, was an actual personal attack. Agree? --Anirudh Emani (talk) 15:32, 15 November 2010 (UTC)
  • Hi, I'm one of the most active administrators around ITN and I just wanted to say that you shouldn't take it personally if your nominations are rejected. My first nomination had no chance of getting up, but I didn't know that at the time! A year later, I've made nearly 1500 edits to that page and, since I became an admin, I've added over 150 items to the Main Page and I still make nominations that end up rejected, so it's not the preserve of newcomers. Anyway, we always need new people around ITN—if all we have are the same people with the same opinions, the discussions get stagnant, so don't be put off and please do join in the discussions.

You dont have to be that much violent for that. I did not hesitate in removing your vote because it was blank and didn't explain why you have casted it. In this case, your vote is not valid and will be ignored by the administrators before the chose on weather to post the article or not. Something of no value is not required at Wikipedia.

2010 Colombia floods

Hi. I observed that you added a hidden comment stating that Hurricane Tomas started the initial flooding in Colombia, but although the hurricane actually hit during a week (1st week in November) when at least 102 people had been killed by flooding rains that were partially caused by Tomas[1], this is innacurate as the flooding had already killed an estimated 100 people by the end of September[2] and the rainy season may have claimed lives as early as May[3]. The article could either focus on the flooding post-Tomas (once we could determine when the most recent casualty count actually started as I did for the 2010 China floods), in which case it would need to be moved, or on the flooding from May onwards. Just as a side note, severe flooding events comparable to this one have occurred in other countries, and some of them do not (yet) have an article. Thanks. ~AH1(TCU) 01:13, 22 November 2010 (UTC)

Accept reason:

I suggest finding a healthy way of handling Wikipedia; "addiction" of any sort is unhealthy nearly by definition. I've reinstated the original 48 hour block. Magog the Ogre (talk) 01:38, 24 November 2010 (UTC)

Unblocking administrator: Please check for active autoblocks on this user after accepting the unblock request.

Here's your solution: Wikipedia:WikiProject User scripts/Scripts/WikiBreak Enforcer.--Chaser (talk) 01:44, 24 November 2010 (UTC)

Thank you! I appreciate you kind help! I will try to use the WikiBreak Enforcer whenever required. --Anirudh Emani (talk) 01:53, 24 November 2010 (UTC)

Reminder on close paraphrasing

Hi Anirudh, I would like to take this opportunity to remind you of our essay (imo, it should be a policy, but hey) on close paraphrasing, which is related to copyrights. This is regarding the recent events that saw you being blocked, but also about your post to WP:ITNC#Russian Duma condemns Katyn massacre since.

You suggested the blurb:

The Duma has declared that the "Katyn crime" in 1940 was ordered by the Soviet dictator and other Soviet officials.

The BBC article:

Russia's lower house of parliament has condemned Joseph Stalin by name for the mass execution of Poles at Katyn during World War II. The Duma declared that the Soviet dictator and other Soviet officials had ordered the "Katyn crime" in 1940.

Your suggested blurb is almost a word-for-word copy of that second paragraph. Just so you know, if you used your suggested line in an article, and went on to reword other sentences just like that, you would still be in violation of copyright.

Please treat copyrights and close paraphrasing seriously as it could get you into more trouble as it is.

Best regards. Strange Passerby (talkcontribs) 14:51, 26 November 2010 (UTC)

I tried my hardest and changed all the wording. Unfortunately, it is still a copyvio(as you told me). To be very frank, i cant actually write the topic in my own words. I am looking for editors who can teach me how we can write the subject in our words so that the we don't violate the copyright. --Anirudh Emani (talk) 15:55, 26 November 2010 (UTC)

Category:WikiProject Anime and manga

Please do not re-add the individual issues of the WP:ANIME newsletter to Category:WikiProject Anime and manga. The main newsletter archive is already in the category and there is no need to include the issues in as well. Also, categorizing the issues also includes the user pages on which they are transcended to, which is absolutely not appropriate. —Farix (t | c) 16:09, 26 November 2010 (UTC)

In the news conflict

But is TSA not very violent. Even when that man was having troubles regarding his health. The TSA people didnot listen to him (as the news article said) and so did the man suffer. Now, if this is not suitable for ITN. Okay, i agree. But kindly see if any part of the article is or can be suitable to ITN. --Anirudh Emani (talk) 13:27, 21 November 2010 (UTC)

You make mistakes and you never realize. But when other people make mistakes, you feel like a big lecturer and strictly oppose them like you did here and here. Just when in the world will you realize your mistakes and try be more cautious when pointing out other's mistakes. --117.198.154.102 (talk) 13:40, 21 November 2010 (UTC)
It looks like Anirudh Emani is in the mood of criticizing th US Security. Lets not wait anymore and strictly warn him about it. --117.198.154.102 (talk) 13:48, 21 November 2010 (UTC)
lol!! Good attack on me!!! I Can defend myself, can you???. You are just an IP user. I am a reviewer. What can you do to me!!?? --Anirudh Emani (talk) 13:51, 21 November 2010 (UTC)
Shut up!! Even we, the IP user have equal support from the other Wikipedia members. Why did you feel we cant make accounts and block you out. A free encyclopedia is so vulnerable to such criminals right. I can do anything to you. Just make sure you dont piss me off kid. --117.198.154.102 (talk) 13:54, 21 November 2010 (UTC)
Wow! I dont wanna see some kind of war here. I would never care about what you do on Wikipedia. Do you even know that wikipedia has got enough forces to revert vandal attacks in no time. If you make an account and try to block other users for your own purposes, our administrators would instantly kick you out of Wikipedia. Mind it. --Anirudh Emani (talk) 13:57, 21 November 2010 (UTC)
Asshole, why did you bring everything here. Tell me!!! --117.198.154.102 (talk) 14:07, 21 November 2010 (UTC)
Enjoy the warning on your talk page. --Anirudh Emani (talk) 14:09, 21 November 2010 (UTC)
Have one yourself: Do not threaten to abuse any privileged tool in that manner or else you will likely find yourself stripped of that tool - especially ones like reviewer or rollback. If an administrator made a comment similar to the one you made above, he would be dragged before every noticeboard and ArbCom in short order. —Jeremy (v^_^v Hyper Combo K.O.!) 07:38, 29 November 2010 (UTC)
Have you seen what he is been doing. He was vandalizing my talk page and the ITN page continually, so i warned him. It is not like i have been using the tool for fun. --Anirudh Emani (talk) 08:01, 29 November 2010 (UTC)
"I Can defend myself, can you???."[sic] and "You are just an IP user. I am a reviewer" are not "warnings". If they are warnings, then so is brandishing a club and gesturing towards someone's head. —Jeremy (v^_^v Hyper Combo K.O.!) 08:04, 29 November 2010 (UTC)
But he was irritating me and other editors. How can i bare it. If someone was continually criticizing you, what would you do. --Anirudh Emani (talk) 08:16, 29 November 2010 (UTC)
Pardon my interruption. You deal with it. Being a reviewer or rollbacker does not give you any more "power" or "right" than anyone else. Strange Passerby (talkcontribs) 08:21, 29 November 2010 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Exactly what I was planning on saying. When I was an admin, I took their criticism and, if legitimate, took it into consideration. —Jeremy (v^_^v Hyper Combo K.O.!) 08:26, 29 November 2010 (UTC)

Fine. Next time i will try to bare everything and solve the problem more peacefully. --Anirudh Emani (talk) 13:03, 29 November 2010 (UTC)
It's "bear", for future reference. I keep having to remind myself you're not disrobing :/ —Jeremy (v^_^v Hyper Combo K.O.!) 19:05, 29 November 2010 (UTC)
Whoops!! Sorry! --Anirudh Emani (talk) 09:16, 30 November 2010 (UTC)
