Thank you

I just wanted to say thank you for the Barnstar. I have enjoyed performing wikignome tasks on an array of pages here at wikiP. Having that acknowledged by a Barnstar makes it all-the-more worthwhile so, once again, thank you very much. MarnetteD | Talk 19:47, 8 November 2006 (UTC)

You're welcome it was well deserved.-- Seadog 02:46, 9 November 2006 (UTC)

I am sorry, you must have been hurt because of fight on talk page of Hinduism.

I am sorry, you must have been hurt because of fight on talk page of Hinduism. I do not know why HeBhagawan is so attached to the article. He fails to realise that others have a right to edit. Each and every sentence does not require citation. What I had removed with request to wait for 24 hrs., he reverted within 36 minutes. In spite of Baka, Saiva suj, and to some extent Priyanath commented that caste system is not an integral part of Hindu religion yet he is bent upon it's controversial inclusion and has put it for vote. Hope you might have read the entire discussion.

Sorry, if I have hurt you on this account.

swadhyayee 19:49, 8 November 2006 (UTC)

Arjun,

What you saw as my version is really not my version. What I removed should have been seen. Probably, the left out part, HeBhagawan thought is my version. It's not so, I found the part removed by me irrelevant and damaging. I did not apply my mind to remaining part. I can understand your support to me as well displeasure due to recent developments. All I can say is that I am doing out of my feelings to portray Hinduism in right sense. This is not an ego problem of mine. HeBhagawan has un-desirable attachment for the contents which I have no idea who contributed. We can't just copy - paste some book dis-regarding applicability in this article and the more relevant material. Thanks for your warmth and apologies to displease you. swadhyayee 02:43, 10 November 2006 (UTC)

My RfA

Hi Arjun, as you requested I am notifying you of my RfA. It is listed here. Thanks! - Mike | Talk 21:11, 8 November 2006 (UTC)

Alternate names

Hello Arjun/Seadog. A common way to find altername names of a god or goddess in Hinduism is by looking at their family relations. eg. In the Bhagavad Gita, Krishna often calls Arjun "Kaunteya" which means son of Kunti. Another name is Draupadi-pati which means Wife of Draupadi. These types of titles are very common. There are people in India called "Pawan-putra" (son of Pawan - Hanuman) "Nanda-lala (son of Nanda Krishna) "Lakshmipati" wife of Vishnu "Umapati" wife of Shiva. The list is endless. You can use one of those as your new username. Cheers GizzaChat © 11:32, 9 November 2006 (UTC)

Thank's for the ideas. I am however going to keep my old name to save confusion, since the name change was unsuccessful. Thanks for the ideas I am very grateful. I have however put in the Sacred OM in my signature.-- Seadog 17:53, 9 November 2006 (UTC)

RE: Monobook

'ello there! First of all, we'll need to create a new page; name it User:Seadog.M.S/statuschanger.js. Then, copy all the code from here to the new page. Create another page; name it User:Seadog.M.S/StatusDiv and copy the code from here into there. You may want to fiddle around a bit with the colors and such. Finally, insert the following code into your monobook;

inc("User:Seadog.M.S/statuschanger.js");;

Hard refresh, and you're done!

If you have any questions, feel free to pop into my talk page and ask. Cheers, Master of Puppets The Walrus! 21:40, 9 November 2006 (UTC)

I added some things, it should work now. To hard refresh just close and open your browser again. Oh, and change the colors and page names in User:Seadog.M.S/StatusDiv if you want to. Cheers, Master of Puppets The Walrus! 23:30, 9 November 2006 (UTC)
Hi. I'm just suggesting another way to hard refresh. Depending on what browser you use, press ctrl-F5 in IE, ctrl-shift-R in Firefox and Safari, and F5 in Opera and Konquerer. These ways are listed at the bottom of your preferences. --The Great Llama talk 23:43, 9 November 2006 (UTC)
Thanks guys.-- Seadog 02:58, 10 November 2006 (UTC)

Lily Towers

Oh well thank you though I can't take all the credit. Mkdw designed much of it, as you can see from his userpage. =P Lily Towerstalk 01:40, 10 November 2006 (UTC)

What you reverted (the IP address on her page) was E@L, but she didn't sign in. Please revert back. Thanks. Bearly451 talk 00:07, 11 November 2006 (UTC)

Oh, someone got to this before I did, but I reverted after tracing the IP to the area in Canada where she lives. —  $PЯINGrαgђ  Always loyal! 00:24, 11 November 2006 (UTC)

I agree whole-heartedly. I wish I could strangle the shrimp(s). —  $PЯINGrαgђ  Always loyal! 00:52, 11 November 2006 (UTC)

Re. Vandalism

Heh, thank you. It was nice to see that my new message was a compliment and not some angry user complaining about a reverted edit. :-) Regards.--Húsönd 03:23, 11 November 2006 (UTC)

Well, that's more user page vandalism than I've had so far. You must be doing some very good work then. :-) Actually I had a few vandals diverted to my editor review, as I used to have a link to it first thing on my user page, and for some reason they loved to vandalize my editor review instead. Regards.--Húsönd 03:28, 11 November 2006 (UTC)

Thank you. I'm actually quite pleased with the tower, with it I no longer need bookmarks nor typing shortcuts for those pages. Handy. Feel to copy the tower to your page if you want to. If you do, just leave some credits at the bottom, it would be funny if they chained like Coolcat's countries-visited board (as you can see at the bottom of my page). :-) Regards.--Húsönd 03:35, 11 November 2006 (UTC)

Here's my quick administratorship-aimed editor review. :-) You're in the right path. I see that you've been fighting vandalism, but perhaps you could step up your pace with Vandalproof. I believe that by now you've attained enough experience to use it. I see some participation in XfD, but I recommend a much stronger participation in that area. Administrators have the ability to delete pages, and it's fundamental that you become accustomed to the processes that lead to their deletion. I suggest that you do not attempt an RfA before 3000 edits/3 months time on Wikipedia. Of those 3000 edits, +1000 should be on the main space, and a few hundreds on Wikipedia space. Without these minimum requirements, your chances are slim. But, as I've said, you're doing very well. I recommend not attempting an RfA before 4000 edits/4 months by the way. The more time you'll be on Wikipedia, the more editors will be able to recognize you and your work. Last but not least: avoid conflicts, always be civil, always use edit summaries. That's the recipe. I wish you good luck. :-) Best regards.--Húsönd 03:55, 11 November 2006 (UTC)

Thanks again

Hi Arjun, I realize that I never thanked you for showing me some other Krishna pictures for my user page. They're all nice. I'm still looking for something that you can see his face, i.e., more of a close-up. I may just have to have a photo of another saint. I have one in mind, which I'll try and upload this coming week. Om Om Om. ॐ Priyanath 03:46, 11 November 2006 (UTC)

Signiture

Hi Arjun. I can see you've changed your userpage again; this is the best version so far. Be careful though, you don't want 800 edits to your userpage like me. I wanted to ask you how you change the font for your signature, as well as if there is a list where I can choose fonts from. Also, I wanted to add another quote to your qoute page (the one from Pliny here), but I'm not sure if you want me to add it in Greek and English, or just the translation. | AndonicO Talk 18:14, 11 November 2006 (UTC)
Ok, I didn't know it was that simple; I thought there were "wikifonts". :-) I added the quote to your subpage also. | AndonicO Talk 18:25, 11 November 2006 (UTC)
I chose my font (Papyrus), so it's off to the sandbox with me. I also found it interesting that I don't have "Old England Text MT" on Word. | AndonicO Talk 18:37, 11 November 2006 (UTC)
I don't have it either way (not even typing it in). My signature is fine like this though. What do you think of AndonicO Talk or Sign Here? Any suggestions? | AndonicO Talk 19:04, 11 November 2006 (UTC)
Something is wrong. With preview, I can see "Talk or Sign Here" just fine, but not when I save it. Do you see it gray? | AndonicO Talk 19:07, 11 November 2006 (UTC)

RfA thanks

Höckerschwan mit ausgebreiteten-Flügeln.jpg
Thank you for the extra feathers on my wings!

Thank you so much, Arjun, for your support in my RfA, which passed on November 11, 2006, with a final tally of 82/0/2. I am humbled by the kind support of so many fellow Wikipedians, and I vow to continue to work and improve with the help of these new tools. Should you have any request, do not hesitate to contact me. Best regards, Húsönd 21:21, 11 November 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for the congratulations and good luck with your adminship-path. Feel free to ask for advice whenever you need it. Kindest regards.--Húsönd 21:25, 11 November 2006 (UTC)

Erm, I have no idea who's the youngest. Not me, that is for certain. :-) --Húsönd 21:30, 11 November 2006 (UTC)
I don't know who the youngest is, but Shreshth91 and Sango123 were only 14 when they passed their RfAs, and Ilyanep is our youngest bureaucrat at 15. By the way, I noticed you're feeling depressed, so I hope you feel better sooner or later. Hurry back - we'll miss you if you stay away too long! Best wishes, riana_dzasta 04:39, 12 November 2006 (UTC)

Teehee! I've been studying all morning, just taking a little time off in the afternoon (things like glycolysis and oxidative phosphorylation aren't interesting enough to hold my concentration all day). riana_dzasta 05:20, 12 November 2006 (UTC)

Things like this shouldn't have to anyone. She's been keeping in touch via e-mail, though, which is good. I hope she feels better soon. riana_dzasta 05:24, 12 November 2006 (UTC)

lol! That's the strangest award I've received yet. I shall treasure it :) Take care of yourself, OK? It's good to worry about others, but at the end of the day, you have to make sure you're not doing it at the expense of your own well-being. riana_dzasta 05:29, 12 November 2006 (UTC)

Hey Arjun, I somehow missed out on your last message on my talkpage! Yeah, vandals suck :) You get your userpage messed up if you've been vandal-crunching for long enough - I see you've been doing some of it lately, so welcome to the club :p riana_dzasta 02:23, 14 November 2006 (UTC)

thank you

Thank you for your support...
Thank you ever so much, Seadog.M.S, for your kind words and understanding in my time of need. I deeply appreciate your support, and I hope to be there for you, should you ever need help. — Kyoko

Help note

We need assessors at Wikipedia:WikiProject_Hinduism/Assessment. All you need to do is look at Hinduism related articles and judge how good they look, its extremely backlogged. Bakaman Bakatalk 05:47, 12 November 2006 (UTC)

I am trying to reduce terrorism not increase it.

I think you have a moral obligation to carfully analyse your posts/articles that have politics and religion overlapping.

Much of it has links to outside propaganda (falsehood) which leads to things like terrorist acts like 9/11, 7/7 Assasinations of democratic leaders to be replaced by Theocratic war mongorers and the like...

What you refer to vandalism is in fact correction.

A free world cannot exist if we let fundamentalism use a free secular platform to amplify its hate towards the very freedoms it uses as its own foundation to stand on.

Vandalism

I see that you have your own warning messages. Very interesting, and once again, good job reverting damage to articles! --Gray Porpoisecetaceans have large brains 01:49, 13 November 2006 (UTC)

February would be a good time for your RfA. I'd say to keep up what you've been doing and you'll get lots of support. You say you've been rating Hinduism articles on the quality scale? I've been doing the same with cetaceans articles! It's great how people with a variety of interests all collaborate on Wikipedia. --Gray Porpoisecetaceans have large brains 02:41, 13 November 2006 (UTC)

RfA Thanks

Adminmop-no.png Mike's RfA Thanks
Seadog.M.S: Thanks very much for your support at my RfA. Unfortunately, it was clear that no consensus was going to be reached, and I have withdrawn the request at a final tally of 31/17/4. Regardless, I really appreciate your confidence in me. Despite the failure, rest assured that I will continue to edit Wikipedia as before. If all goes well, I think that I will re-apply in January or February. - Mike | Talk 04:33, 13 November 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for your input!

Thank you for taking part in my RfA. The RfA was not successful, mostly because I did a pretty bad job of presenting myself. I'll run again sometime in the next few months, in the hopes that some will reconsider.

In the meantime, one of the projects I'm working on is A Wikimedia Administrator's Handbook. This is a wikibook how-to guide intended to help new administrators learn the ropes, as well as to simply "demystify" what adminship entails. If you are an administrator, please help out with writing it, particularly on the technical aspects of the tools. Both administrators and non-administrators are welcome to help link in and sort all of the various policies regarding the use of these tools on wikipedia in particular (as well as other projects: for example, I have almost no experience with how things work on wiktionary or wikinews). Users who are neither familiar with policy or the sysop tools could be of great help by asking questions about anything that's unclear. The goal is to get everything together in one place, with a narrative form designed to anticipate the reader's next question.

A second project, related but not entailed, is a book on wikimedia in general, with a history of how various policies evolved over time, interesting trivia (e.g., what the heck was "wikimoney" about?), and a history of how the wikimedia foundation itself came about and the larger issues that occurred during its history (such as the infamous "Spanish Fork").

Again, thanks for your input on the RfA, and thanks in advance for any help you might be able to provide for the handbook. --SB_Johnny|talk|books 14:37, 13 November 2006 (UTC)

Hi Seadog, doing a good job.

Hi Seadog,

Doing good job of warning vandals but can you be little polite inviting them to constructive contributions?

re: Admin?

(I felt dumb replying under the same header, so here's a new one - all minty fresh, just for you :p) Hey Arjun, cool sig! I'm not considering running 'til January-February, as I want to contribute a little more substantially in the mainspace before I do that. But thanks for the encouragement :) If you have time, you may wish to drop me a review or a few questions here. Only if you have nothing better to do, of course :p riana_dzasta 02:30, 14 November 2006 (UTC)

Ack, I am overusing :p aren't I? *blushes* Hey, that would be great if you could help out with Sarod. It's kind of at a stand-still right now, as I can't find good source material, but I'm going to India in December, so I plan to buy lots of books and really get cracking with them! And apologies for the late reply, I'm in the middle of reading (and copyediting) Mount Tambora, which is an FAC. Keep up the guitar-playing - I would love to learn to play, but I have small ladylike hands, and they don't fit around the fretboard. Very embarrassing, really... riana_dzasta 03:09, 14 November 2006 (UTC)

Hey Arjun, sure! Gimme a few minutes to review your contribs, though. Cheers, riana_dzasta 01:42, 16 November 2006 (UTC)

Done - I hope I wasn't too harsh. I've tried to be as honest and constructive as possible. riana_dzasta 02:16, 16 November 2006 (UTC)

Try reading WP:WIAGA, which provides a basic outline of what is needed for a good article. Sorry I can't elaborate right now, I have to go study, but feel free to ask anything you like. Note that I'm probably not the best person to ask about GAs, seeing as I haven't got any myself :p But I'm trying to fix that! riana_dzasta 02:26, 16 November 2006 (UTC)

FYI regarding fair use and Krishna images

Hi Arjun, I found a new Krishna photo for my userpage - only because all the Bhaktivedanta Book Trust photos were determined to be non-fair use on all of Wikipedia, even the Krishna page, which has brand new photos as a result. ॐ Priyanath 04:15, 14 November 2006 (UTC)

I'll let you know. You have a lot of edits, more than I expected (~2500). I'm working on mainspace too now; I figured that if I revert 20 vandalisms a day, I'll have 600 mainspace edits in a month (WOW!). I think I already did more than 20 for today, but I don't want to stop. Once more, good luck! | AndonicO Talk | Sign Here 18:58, 14 November 2006 (UTC)
Yes, I always warn the user/vandal. I am, however, opposed to giving the test1 templates; they sound too lenient. Even if they haven't vandalized before, why should they be thanked for doing it? I always have another window open with this section when I'm at recent changes. That way I can quickly select the right template (because I haven't memorized them yet). | AndonicO Talk | Sign Here 19:20, 14 November 2006 (UTC)

For your well-above-average contributions to Hinduism-related articles, I award you a Barnstar of High Culture! Gray Porpoise 22:19, 16 November 2006 (UTC)

You're welcome, and good work! There are many barnstars at WP:BS. Also, it appears by your history of contributions that you start new talk sections by going to the bottom section and editing it to have a new section underneath. In case you didn't know, there's a + sign on the top tabs that provides a faster way to start new sections. --Gray Porpoise 22:28, 16 November 2006 (UTC)
