WikiProject India Newsletter: Volume II, Issue 1 - January 2007[edit]

Project News
  • Project tagging:After a brief edit war over the addition of {{WP India}} to ancient archaeological sites now located in Pakistan, a "pre" parameter was introduced to remove the ROI flag from the template for pre-1947 articles, following discussion. After another large discussion on ANI alleging that the automated tagging by Ganeshbot and LostBot was "nationalistic", Ganeshbot was briefly blocked. Currently, the bots are again in action.
  • Swastika on Hinduism templates:Recently, an extremely large and at times emotional debate broke out regarding the use of the swastika on Hinduism templates, given its association with Nazism. As a result, {{Hindu Links}} now contains an educational message about the use of the swastika, as discussion on a more permanent resolution continues.

  • Translation Department: Can you read and write any languages of India? Do you know multiple languages and are looking to keep your skills at a high level or improve them? If so, the Translation Depeartment may be for you!

The translation department of the India WikiProject aims to utilize high-quality non-English material related to India for the goals of the project. This includes both translating articles from and to other-language Wikipedias as well as assisting contributors with non-English sources. The department aims to provide services in transliteration, formulating scripts for various languages, as well as translating articles from one language to another and validating sources in other languages to that of the encyclopedia article. If you are looking for a friendly translator here is your go-to point. Currently, we are still seeking representation for Kashmiri, Nepali, Oriya, Sindhi and Tulu, as well as reinforcements in all other languages.

Vijayanagara[edit]

Hi. Thanks for copy edits. Any further requirements/guidance?thanks.Dineshkannambadi 18:16, 20 January 2007 (UTC)

Yes, its a bit long, but a tough one to reduce too much due to overall involvement from all over South India. I cant leave out too many details less I incur a controversy.thanks.Dineshkannambadi 19:08, 20 January 2007 (UTC)

BTW, whats the "WikiProject India Newsletter" I see on your user page. It shows a favourite Photo I took, the Hoysala Emblem.thanks.Dineshkannambadi 19:20, 20 January 2007 (UTC)

Delhi[edit]

I can live with the "Culture" section as it now stands (it used to read like something written by Rambot); the main issue now seems to be the prose. Keep working on it. Thanks. Saravask 03:26, 21 January 2007 (UTC)

Hello[edit]

I saw your message on my talk page: [1]. I have an important news to break: I have learnt from a reliable source that Jimbo may be India (on his third visit within a span of few months!) on a day or two during the period (perhaps) 25th February, 2007 - 3rd March, 2007. Nothing is final yet - city, exact date, his schedules and so on. However, we should try to gather information and if his visit happens we should prepare for a meeting of Indian Wikipedians with him like the one we had at Bangalore on 29th September, 2006: An evening with Jimmy Wales. You may pass on the information to other Indian editors. I shall copy and paste this message on India Notice Board. His visit schedule may change too depending on many factors. I still remember few hours spent in your company at Bangalore on 29.09.06. Thanks and regards. --Bhadani 16:45, 21 January 2007 (UTC)

So you are online :) --Bhadani 17:08, 21 January 2007 (UTC)

You voted for Sculpture in India, this week's Indian Collaboration of the Week. Please come and help it become a featured-standard article. - Aksi_great (talk) 18:14, 22 January 2007 (UTC)

Panjika[edit]

May the goddess Saraswati abide in us! (today being Saraswati Puja). Panjika in Bangla is nothing but a calendar. Did you go through the Hindu Calendar and also Bengali calendar - both eminently well written? Please convey whether at all a separate page titled Panjika is necessary as we would be only duplicating the matter. – VMO 09:49, 23 January 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for your support[edit]

--Yannismarou 20:40, 23 January 2007 (UTC)

As you set out for Ithaka, hope the voyage is long
Knowledge is your destiny, but don't ever hurry the journey
May there be many summer mornings when
With what pleasure and joy, you come into harbors seen for the first time

Don't expect Ithaka to make you rich. Ithaka gave you the marvelous journey
And, if I, one of your fellow-travellers, can offer something
To make this journey of yours even more fascinating and enjoyable
This is my assistance with anything I can help.

Long overdue[edit]

The Original Barnstar I am presenting this barnstar to recognize your interest in India History related topics, your interest in improving its quality in an unbiased manner.Dineshkannambadi 14:34, 24 January 2007 (UTC) The Original Barnstar

AfD Nomination: Anil Chowdhury[edit]

I've nominated the article Anil Chowdhury for deletion under the Articles for deletion process. We appreciate your contributions, but in this particular case I do not feel that Anil Chowdhury satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion. I have explained why in the nomination space (see What Wikipedia is not and Deletion policy). Your opinions on the matter are welcome; please participate in the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Anil Chowdhury. Don't forget to add four tildes (~~~~) at the end of each of your comments to sign them. You are free to edit the content of Anil Chowdhury during the discussion, but please do not remove the "Articles for Deletion" template (the box at the top). Doing so will not end the discussion.

Vijayanagara Empire[edit]

Hi. In the FAC discussion page, a new reviewer, user:Circeus has severely crticised my style of citations (which is in the same format as earlier FA's), called the citation style "patently wrong" and has opposed nomination. He went ahead and chopped most citations into a different format then I am used to providing. He seems to be the only one with a problem. Any ideas?Dineshkannambadi 13:11, 27 January 2007 (UTC)

Seems like Vijayanagara empir is undergoing a major rework by above user:Circeus. I cant even access the page anymore. I just saw a "inuse" tag on it afterwhich, I cant access the page anymore. It comes out blank.thanksDineshkannambadi 22:26, 27 January 2007 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:KolkataCofeehouse123.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading Image:KolkataCofeehouse123.jpg. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can determine the license and the source of the image. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description page.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation. Conscious 15:36, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

From what exists as of now, the image would still fall under the purview of fair-use, as it is a wikipedia-only permission. If you want the image to be used freely, get the author to write something on the lines "Permission is granted to use this image (link here) freely for any purposes, including commercial redistribution and modification." I know this is too much, but Wikipedia requires content to be truly free. Or you can ask the author to release it under any of the creative-commons licenses. If you get the permission to use the image by e-mail, you need to mail it to permissions (at) wikimedia (dot) org, attaching the permission. They would archive the permission on the servers and generate and OTRS ticket like you can see in this image. Since it is an image on flickr, it is best to ask the author to set the permission directly on the photograph, which would be easier for everyone to follow. If the author has specific requirement over use of the photograph, they can be covered using one of the tags such as {{CopyrightedFreeUseProvidedThat|Details here}}. Hope this helps.
