October 2014[edit]

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Punjabi language. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Please be particularly aware that Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing.
You have been given an opportunity to explain your actions at the article's talk page, where a discussion has been opened. Please do so, rather than reverting. Thank you, AnupamTalk 16:55, 30 October 2014 (UTC)

Sockpuppetry investigation[edit]

Hi. A sockpuppetry investigation was opened a couple of weeks ago relating to your recent activity at Talk:Punjabi language. I'm sorry that it appears you were never informed of this earlier (something which is supposed to happen at the start of any SPI). See this page for the details.

In the course of the investigation, five accounts (Jaspr8, Harvard2014, Jaskaran singh sachdeva, Soulmine22, and Jimidar) were noted which were created very recently and which had no editing history at all other than to comment at the Talk:Punjabi language RfC. This is normally considered very suspicious behaviour — strongly suggesting either sockpuppetry (when someone creates additional accounts in order to circumvent Wikipedia policies — in this case, to make it appear that a position in a discussion has more support than it really has), or meatpuppetry (when someone gets a bunch of his friends to sign up for Wikipedia accounts just so they can agree with him and give an impression of more support for a position). Both sockpuppetry and meatpuppetry are considered to be violations of Wikipedia's policies (see WP:SOCK); the extra "users" are normally disabled (blocked) indefinitely, and the mastermind of the charade (the "sockmaster") is usually blocked for at least a week — sometimes longer — in order to prevent further damage to Wikipedia and to impress upon him the need to cease and desist.

If you have an innocent explanation for what has been going on here, we would really like to hear it. If you were in fact engaging in sockpuppetry and/or meatpuppetry, we may very possibly go easier on you if you "come clean", admit what you did, and promise not to do it again. Conversely, if you don't give a satisfactory explanation for what was going on, the assumption is likely to be that you have in fact been breaking the rules and have every intention of continuing to do so.

Please let me (and the rest of the sockpuppet investigation team) hear from you ASAP regarding this matter. Please respond at Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Babanwalia if possible, or else here on your talk page. Thanks. — Richwales (no relation to Jimbo) 00:45, 24 November 2014 (UTC)



It has come to my attention that there is a reasonable possibility that you were made aware of a Request for Comment on the Punjabi language article talk page through an off-Wikipedia email list. Please note that Wikipedia does not allow individuals to selectively notify individuals with the intent of influencing the outcome of a discussion in a particular way. Individuals who receive such emails are encouraged to disregard the contents of the message and leave a message on the individual’s talk page to stop engaging in such activities. Users who are found to engage in further canvassing may be brought to the attention of the administrators’ noticeboard. This may result in sanctions, including revocation of editing privileges. It should be noted that request for comments are closed based upon the merits of the comments presented and whether or not they draw upon Wikipedia policies and utilize reliable, third-party sources to support their statements. The discussion is not a vote, so the closure will not be decided based upon the number of individuals who support a particular side. I hope that this message helps enlighten you on our policies. If you have any questions about these policies, please feel free to reach me on my user talk page. Best regards, Mike VTalk 20:35, 26 November 2014 (UTC)

January 2015[edit]

Please stop your disruptive editing, as you did at Punjabi language. Your edits have been reverted or removed.

Do not continue to make edits that appear disruptive until the dispute is resolved through consensus. Continuing to edit disruptively may result in your being blocked from editing. AnupamTalk 06:15, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

Just atop already with your personal propaganda. The issue has been put to rest with the conclusion that the mention of its "historical and niche uses" be made somewhere in the article and this is already the case. Keeping Devanagri in the very first line along with the "only two scripts" of Punjabi is nothing more than irreverence to community decision-making. Just listing the spelling in Devanagri doesn't amount to mention of its "niche" use. That mention has to be made somewhere in the article not in the lead section. Also, stop misusing your Wiki rights! Just a suggestion, though. --Babanwalia (talk) 06:26, 7 January 2015 (UTC)
User Babanwalia, you are welcome to discuss your disruptive editing and disturbance of the RfC results (several weeks after it closed) here, Talk:Punjabi_language#Disruptive_editing_by_User:Babanwalia. Thanks, AnupamTalk 06:29, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
