Vandal Deletion of References from articles[edit]

Hi British Raja ,
Please do not delete references from articles as you have done in articles

Cheers,
Intothefire (talk) 13:35, 9 February 2009 (UTC)

This reference was merely updated and not deleted - please note that the author in both cases was the same.

I also hope you are not the same as anonymous ip

Intothefire (talk) 13:44, 9 February 2009 (UTC)

No, I am not.

deleting links to Kashibai[edit]

you have deleted links to Kashibai, his grandmother on 2 occasions (I counted only two, I am unsure how high the real number is) here and here. What's the reason for that?--Profitoftruth85 01:09, 5 May 2010 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Profitoftruth85 (talkcontribs)

There is no proof that Kashibai was his grandmother. Please find a reference to this statement.

Welcome to Wikipedia. Everyone is welcome to contribute to the encyclopedia, but when you add or change content, as you did to the article Hari Singh Nalwa, please cite a reliable source for your addition. This helps maintain our policy of verifiability. See Wikipedia:Citing sources for how to cite sources, and the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you.

I have just reverted your edits at that article once more. Have you ever read WP:RS or frequented WP:RSN? Sources from 1845 are simply not good enough, nor are hagiographies etc. - Sitush (talk) 14:40, 26 July 2012 (UTC)

Why are sources from 1845 'not good enough' for the Hari Singh Nalwa page....they seem to be extensively quoted (innumerable Wikipedia pages)....what if a source from 1845 (or about) is the ONLY source of information on a particular subject....e.g. Lepel Griffin's 'Chiefs of the Punjab'?

Disambiguation link notification for September 15[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Hari Singh Nalwa, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Uri, Maharaja Ranjit Singh and Haripur (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Replaceable fair use File:Map showing Nalwa's administrative territory.tif[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Map showing Nalwa's administrative territory.tif. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails the first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could be found or created that provides substantially the same information or which could be adequately covered with text alone. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media 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 taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per the non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Fut.Perf. 10:47, 19 September 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Administration Maharaja Ranjit Singh's Kingdom Hari Singh Nalwa 1791-1837 Champion of the Khalsaji - Vanit Nalwa.jpg[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:Administration Maharaja Ranjit Singh's Kingdom Hari Singh Nalwa 1791-1837 Champion of the Khalsaji - Vanit Nalwa.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F3 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an image licensed as "for non-commercial use only," "non-derivative use" or "used with permission," it has not been shown to comply with the limited standards for the use of non-free content. [1], and it was either uploaded on or after 2005-05-19, or is not used in any articles. If you agree with the deletion, there is no need to do anything. If, however, you believe that this image may be retained on Wikipedia under one of the permitted conditions then:

  • state clearly the source of the image. If it has been copied from elsewhere on the web you should provide links to: the image itself, the page which uses it and the page which contains the license conditions.
  • add the relevant copyright tag.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Stefan2 (talk) 12:49, 25 September 2012 (UTC)

Hari Singh Nalwa[edit]

Hi, I appreciate the time that you are spending in trying to improve Hari Singh Nalwa but I am afraid that a lot of the sources simply are not good enough. I have raised one issue at Talk:Hari Singh Nalwa - regarding Vanit Nalwa - but there are problems with, for example, Lepel Griffin also. I am unsure whether you are aware of the constraints of WP:NOENG but given the controversial nature of the article subject I feel that you need to heed it. Thanks. - Sitush (talk) 18:06, 25 September 2012 (UTC)

I am sorry I do not understand your posts....could you please clarify (everyone does not understand wikipedian language)... From the above I understood: 1. There is a problem regarding Vanit Nalwa, therefore I re-read her book to find out if she had provided any cross-references (pl see that I now refer to her book only when she is quoting a primary source) else I am looking at other sources. I do not understand - is there a problem with Vanit Nalwa or is there a problem with the information. 'NAI' refers to the National Archives of India: is this source to be considered reliable? The only reason I quote Nalwa is because she provides cross-references. Many others say the same thing, but provide no references.

2.What I understood from the latter half of your message was that the poems should be given in the language in which they were written (if not English). There is no war...

Non-English sources Policy shortcuts:

   WP:NOENG
   WP:NONENG
       When quoting a source in a different language, provide the original text and an English translation, either in the body of the article or in a footnote.
       When citing a non-English source for information, it is not always necessary to provide a translation. However, if a question should arise as to whether the non-English original actually supports the information, relevant portions of the original and a translation should be given in a footnote, as a courtesy.

Please explain in simple English what exactly you mean...


Is there any reason why you are adding more unreliable sources when there is an active discussion? - Sitush (talk) 09:31, 28 September 2012 (UTC)
Look, I am trying to be polite and to seek consensus etc. Are you going to engage in discussions at Talk:Hari Singh Nalwa or not? - Sitush (talk) 09:54, 28 September 2012 (UTC)

Could you please enlighten me - 1. Why is 'Sachdeva' unreliable? 2. What is unreliable about an eyewitness account given in 1836-7 by a traveller (not Sikh, not British but an Austrian/German) about a wall surrounding a city?

Article talk page, please, not here. It would help if you could provide a diff if you think that I have removed the items that you state. - Sitush (talk) 10:07, 28 September 2012 (UTC)
And please revert your reinstatement of the poem, per WP:BRD. If you edit war here then you could well find yourself blocked. - Sitush (talk) 10:09, 28 September 2012 (UTC)


Please see above...also what does this mean "if you could provide a diff"?

Please guide me...I obtained permission to reproduce a map, however the author had given permission only for reproduction on the wiki page relating to the subject...when I posted the map, it was removed (I said that I had the author's permission in an email). What can I do? Making the map is tedious...
