E-mails[edit]

You can use "Email this user" in the panel on the left, but I will probably reply on your talk page, or the article talk page, as discussions should be open and on the record.
I have experienced problems with e-mails not being delivered, so please leave me a message on this page if I have not replied within 48 hours.

Broadcasted[edit]

The Wiktionary definition of Broadcasted states the use is proscribed, so it should not be used. The word also appears on Wikipedia:Lists_of_common_misspellings/B

Broadcasted appears in some dictionaries, but others, e.g. Chambers state "Sorry, no entries for Broadcasted were found".
Broadcast appears in all dictionaries, and should be used as COMMONALITY - "Wikipedia tries to find words that are common to all varieties of English".

A February 2019 search for Broadcast gave over 197,000 uses, compared with a search for Broadcasted which gave just 72.
Of these 72, 15 are redirects to "Broadcast" articles, 16 refer to a Canadian TV award and 5 relate to a 1924 cartoon. The rest are quotations.




Happy New Year..![edit]


Islam in India[edit]

Firstly no one put a source there and the article was update so the numbers should be updated you seem not to have taken a look at the history page of the article and said "unsourced" vaguely. Next time try to make sure you look into the history page of the article before reverting, thanks--SharabSalam (talk) 18:36, 3 March 2019 (UTC)

No SharabSalam - it is the WP:BURDEN of anyone adding information to an article to provide the citations to support that information, which you did not. As I said in my second edit summary "Still unsourced - previous bad edits are no excuse" - please do not add further unsourced material to our articles - thank you - Arjayay (talk) 18:40, 3 March 2019 (UTC)
Just to make what you did clear is that you removed "unsourced figure" and replaced it with an unsourced figure. The article was updated here with new sources that are reliable. That's why I told you to look in the history of the page before reverting I am not saying "because the figure was unsourced in the first place that means you have no right to question if it changed" as you are trying to imply I am saying that the figure was updated with new sources that seem reliable and I don't think we should reuse the sources again in infobox when they are in the body of the article--SharabSalam (talk) 18:47, 3 March 2019 (UTC)
No, SharabSalam I very clearly did not "replace[d] it with an unsourced figure". In both my deletions, here and here, I just deleted the unsourced information - I did not replace it with anything. I also note that it has since been re-deleted by another editor, for exactly the same reason - Arjayay (talk) 10:21, 4 March 2019 (UTC)

Warning left on user page?[edit]

Hi Arjayay! I hope you're doing well; it's been awhile since we've said hello to one another. I'm messaging you because I just ran into a warning here that you left on someone's user page instead of their user talk page. Was this done on purpose? Your edit summary made it seem like so. Why leave it on the user page instead of the user's talk page? Maybe so (s)he'll see it? Let me know. :-) I'm just curious if anything... ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 21:23, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

Hi User:Oshwah - Thanks for your message - No reason, other than my basic stupidity, that's one thing I'm good at - Arjayay (talk) 22:08, 18 March 2019 (UTC)
HA! Me too! I'm quite good at stupidity and making idiot edits, as you may already know. ;-) No worries; just figured I'd message you about it and ask. :-) Cheers - ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 22:16, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

New question[edit]

Hey I've got a question for you, how does one get into the battle of nations — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.153.126.126 (talk) 00:39, 23 March 2019 (UTC)

Hi IP from Maryland - I'm afraid I have no idea what you are talking about. Although your IP has made edits prior to this post, they were over 10 years ago, and do not seem relevant to your question - Arjayay (talk) 10:37, 23 March 2019 (UTC)
