Filmfare Nominations[edit]

Hi, it's good that you added nominations for few years. But where is the source for the years other than the current year. --Commander (Ping Me) 13:27, 30 June 2011 (UTC)

Do you have sources for Filmfare Best Actor-Tamil nominations. If so add it to the article. --Commander (Ping Me) 13:04, 4 July 2011 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

For maintaining South Indian films related articles. Keep up the good work :-) Karthik Nadar (talk) 11:37, 5 September 2011 (UTC)

Re: Mani Ratnam[edit]

I Will expand the article once I get time, as I'm a bit occupied with other work. --Commander (Ping Me) 04:55, 24 September 2011 (UTC)

Landmark Tamil Films[edit]

Hi, I've had a long desire to expand and elevate articles such as Mouna Raagam, Nayakan and Thalapathi. However, finding sources for them is really a challenging task. These films deserve a great place in the history of Tamil cinema and have a lot of potential. To do that we need to collaborate, without which it's not going to be that easy. Vensatry (Ping me) 18:36, 12 February 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for creating and expanding the article of S. N. Lakshmi. Appreciating your diligence in making a article to a legendary actress. Keep up the good work!! Ason27 (talk) 13:01, 7 March 2012 (UTC)

Mullum Malarum[edit]

I am planning to take the article to GA status. Pls have a look at it; any suggestions for improvement? ---- Kailash29792 (talk) 06:37, 25 November 2013 (UTC)

Editor 2050, I think u can copy-edit it to some extent. Kailash29792 (talk) 05:46, 26 January 2014 (UTC)
Never mind, the article has passed its GA review. Kailash29792 (talk) 14:57, 1 March 2014 (UTC)

A small advice[edit]

I know you are an excellent editor and keep all (at least the majority of) Tamil film articles up-to-date. But please remember one thing: please try to avoid using the term "roped in" as it sounds slangy. Also, do please remember to clear your talk page of unnecessary conversations so that navigation is easier. Kailash29792 (talk) 13:03, 1 March 2014 (UTC)

Recent edit on Kochaadaiiyaan[edit]

Hi. Recently you made this edit on the Kochadaiiyaan page. Your addition of information is much appreciated but could you please also add the necessary citations to the references from where you got the info? Thanks and peace! NiRinsanity 10:40, 2 April 2014 (UTC)

En Iniya Ponnilave[edit]

Hi, I don't think the film got a theatrical release. Vensatry (Ping) 14:44, 12 April 2014 (UTC)

Oh, saw some news regarding a potential release and saw it listed on the Tamil films of 2001 page. I'm not certain either. It's also up on YouTube, with a censor certificate, completed version et all. Editor 2050 (talk) 14:49, 12 April 2014 (UTC)
Quite confusing! I've come across a few Tamil movie forums all saying the film is yet to have a theatrical release. Interestingly Vairamuthu has written all the songs. I thought IR and Vairamuthu never worked together after Punnagai Mannan (1986). Vensatry (Ping) 15:14, 12 April 2014 (UTC)


Rana[edit]

User:Chanderforyou has deleted a lot of content from Rana (film), claiming that the sources are "not reliable". Can u please restore the info with alternative sources, or try convincing him? I failed in both. Kailash29792 (talk) 11:57, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

Hi, just looked at the changes, and don't really agree with them. But then again I'm not really sure if Rana should have a page at the moment anyone - Lingaa seems to be an entirely different venture. Editor 2050 (talk) 12:39, 31 May 2014 (UTC)
I too initially felt Rana should not have a separate article due to its currently shelved status and nominated it for deletion, although the consensus was to keep because the film stalled during principal photography. Kailash29792 (talk) 02:18, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

Maattram[edit]

Please check the references before you Redirect it, the references have all the information with photos including the film's audio launch. This might be a small film, that does n't mean that it is not qualified for wikipedia. Please do not redirect/revert the edit. Rajeshbieee (talk) 12:02, 16 June 2014 (UTC)

Gemini FAC[edit]

Hi, since you have been on Wikipedia for quite a few years, I think you are familiar with the concept of Good and Featured articles. Currently, Gemini (2002 Tamil film) is a FAC (featured article candidate) and I think you would like to post your comments on the FAC page. Kailash29792 (talk) 08:08, 20 June 2014 (UTC)

Oh say, can you at least say something? Even a negative reply is not bad, but ignorance feels impolite. Kailash29792 (talk) 17:38, 27 June 2014 (UTC)
Hi! Thanks for your comments and they have been solved. By the way, is there more to come? Coz, you never said whether you support or oppose the FAC. -- Sriram speak up 04:58, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
And great job creating those two articles. That was quick!! -- Sriram speak up 04:58, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

A cup of coffee for you![edit]

A small cup of coffee.JPG Thank you for your comments on Gemini's FAC. They all appear to have been solved. Kailash29792 (talk) 19:34, 28 June 2014 (UTC)

Chandralekha FAC[edit]

Hi, I have nominated Chandralekha (1948 film) for FA status, and it is my first FAC. Feel free to post comments on the FAC page. Kailash29792 (talk) 13:07, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

Sreedhar Pillai/Film News Anandan[edit]

Hi, do you have any intention on creating articles on Sreedhar Pillai and Film News Anandan? Because they are film experts, and content published by them in any media should be acceptable (SP uses Twitter). Kailash29792 (talk) 16:13, 7 December 2014 (UTC)

Potentially soon, the latter definitely needs an article. Editor 2050 (talk) 16:49, 7 December 2014 (UTC)

U. K. Senthil Kumar[edit]

Okay so on the new page feed I found U. K. Senthil Kumar, are you sure that's the guys name or shouldn't it be something like Senthil Kumar (cinematographer) instead? Wgolf (talk) 19:44, 14 June 2015 (UTC)

He has been credited under this name - should be fine. It's merely an initial. Editor 2050 (talk) 19:57, 14 June 2015 (UTC)
Aww okay-you might want to add a hat note also. Wgolf (talk) 20:12, 14 June 2015 (UTC)

If you can do some cleanup on that page using this existing source, it would be great. Kailash29792 (talk) 17:33, 28 June 2015 (UTC)

Untitled Vamsi Paidipally project[edit]

Hi. I've observed that you have moved the page Untitled Vamsi Paidipally project to Dosth (film). But, reliable sources are stating that the makers are keen to name the film as Dosth. Any explanation from your side is appreciated. Yours sincerely, Pavanjandhyala (talk) 01:41, 9 July 2015 (UTC)

Rumors[edit]

I don't think Wikipedia articles should have information on rumors as, according to this policy, "Speculation and rumor, even from reliable sources, are not appropriate encyclopedic content." You can also use gadgets like Twinkle and ProveIt to ease editing. Kailash29792 (talk) 04:58, 19 September 2015 (UTC)

After I saw your recent edits on Thanga Magan (2015), I'll tell you this again: please do not add informaion on rumours, as they are unencyclopedic. Kailash29792 (talk) 15:31, 11 October 2015 (UTC)

Articles on directors[edit]

Hi, I appreciate your efforts for creating articles of not so familiar directors who did two or three films. Please do create more articles, for example G. Marimuthu, A. Govindamurthy, Manivasagam and Thakkali Srinivasan. Srivin (talk) 15:42, 28 September 2015 (UTC)

Thanks. I've tended to concentrate on artistes/technicians who were at some point widely reported in the press - or those who have done a minimum of three films. The latter two are articles I will make at some point. Editor 2050 (talk) 17:44, 28 September 2015 (UTC)

Ashok Kumar[edit]

Hi, I think this one might be a dubbed version of either Tales of The Kama Sutra: The Perfumed Garden or Khajuraho. He did direct the latter. Vensatry (ping) 17:39, 21 October 2015 (UTC)

Hi, nope. There are reports of a "trilingual film" titled Kaama / Kama Tantra in production during 1999: here and here. Also the Telugu version of the film with the director's son Vishal, Urvasi, Sunila in the lead, and a solo song from Deepti Bhatnagar thrown in with little relevance to the plot - can be found here. It seems to have hit the screens rather quietly in 1999, after a run in with the censors. Khajuraho also featuring Vishal, but with Mamta Kulkarni and Sadhika, seems to be something else as per this. Funnily enough, a YouTube search suggests that the same, standalone Deepti Bhatnagar song was also used in the film, as per here. Editor 2050 (talk) 19:54, 21 October 2015 (UTC)
Fair enough! So it's safe to assume that the film never hit the screens per this source? Vensatry (ping) 06:51, 22 October 2015 (UTC)
Um, that article suggests that news about the film suddenly diminished - but this states it as a released film. It must have had a super low-key release. Editor 2050 (talk) 10:56, 22 October 2015 (UTC)

Nawab Narkali[edit]

Please kindly redirect Nawab Narkali (1972 film) with Nawab Naarkali. Srivin (talk) 12:18, 4 November 2015 (UTC)

Sure. How come you didn't want to do it? Editor 2050 (talk) 12:30, 4 November 2015 (UTC)
See the problem is I do not know how to redirecting despite reading the rules I have failed while doing for some articles and also please redirect Thai Moogambikai with Thaai Mookaambikai. Thanks. Srivin (talk) 12:48, 4 November 2015 (UTC)

Latest news on the film's production and title. Please update the article with this because my net is down. Kailash29792 (talk) 17:12, 16 December 2015 (UTC)

It's a generic site. Your net is down, eh? :S Editor 2050 (talk) 19:29, 16 December 2015 (UTC)
I request you not to retitle Enthiran 2 (film) by simply cutting and pasting. Using Twinkle, I have tagged 2.0 (film) for deletion, and once it is deleted, Enthiran 2 (film) can be moved to that title. Kailash29792 (talk) 12:41, 18 December 2015 (UTC)
Sure, brilliant. Cheers. Editor 2050 (talk) 12:42, 18 December 2015 (UTC)
An update about the film's title, though its credibility may be questioned. Kailash29792 (talk) 11:22, 22 December 2015 (UTC)
Nice, but yes credibility is most definitely questioned. Looks like a blog of sorts. It's probably best to keep track of [1], [2] and [3] for the moment. Editor 2050 (talk) 11:34, 22 December 2015 (UTC)

Calicut specialist and Parvathy Nair[edit]

bro ... one scene movies we mentioned in career... so pls stop adding one scene movies in her filmography ... --Calicutspecialist (talk) 09:53, 2 January 2016 (UTC)

bro m trying hard to improve parvathy nair article ... pls help me on this... --Calicutspecialist (talk) 16:14, 2 January 2016 (UTC)

Calicutspecialist: Just try to make the article less biased towards her, though I know you maintain close contact with her. Kailash29792 (talk) 16:23, 2 January 2016 (UTC)
Kailash29792: bro we mentioned all films in her career ...but when adding one scene movies in filmography it wil be a reason to lose the focus of main important films ... I m sure if we add all one scene movies in every other actors filmography there will be many movies .... so its important to remove unnoticed one scene movies frm filmography ... It wil definitely help to improve Wikipedia.. thank you .. --Calicutspecialist (talk) 03:47, 3 January 2016 (UTC)
Calicutspecialist: The actress has done about a dozen films - one scene "guest appearances" in prestigious projects (NN and it's remake) hardly lose any focus. Also every other actor do have their "one scene movies" included. Editor 2050 (talk) 14:29, 3 January 2016 (UTC)
I support Editor 2050's decision. And in the filmography section, we can even acknowledge her small roles as "cameo appearances". Kailash29792 (talk) 15:15, 3 January 2016 (UTC)
Kailash29792: Looks like Calicutspecialist has given away his own sockpuppet [4] - the same fella who set up this almost a year ago [5]. Sigh. Editor 2050 (talk) 16:19, 10 January 2016 (UTC)
Calicutspecialist no doubt behaves very much like Abhinand. But when I asked Parvathy (I do not mean to violate WP:COI) if she knows Calicutspecialist personally, she said she does not. If you have Twinkle installed, you can file a SPI case and present evidence of Abhinand's sockpuppetry if any. Kailash29792 (talk) 16:31, 10 January 2016 (UTC)
Aiyo. Cheers anyway, poor Parvathy. Let's see how it pans out. Editor 2050 (talk) 16:33, 10 January 2016 (UTC)
Just spotted her account, there does seem to be an Abhinand who leaves comments on pretty much every post. Big fan, I guess. Editor 2050 (talk) 16:36, 10 January 2016 (UTC)
More than "big fan", he seems to be a stalker. I never wished to get entangled into this mess, so I will remove Parvathy Nair from my watchlist and cease editing it (except improve the prose when necessary). Although Parvathy claims that User:Josu4u has been editing articles about her films disruptively, I checked his edits and they seem to have a point (such as billing a cast list according to a press release). He has been active for quite a few years and has even won a few barnstars, so I guess he is a reasonably respectable and honest editor. I don't see why both Parvathy and Abhinand should oppose his edits; probably because they speak out against her. Kailash29792 (talk) 16:58, 10 January 2016 (UTC)

Person adding Indian films with no reliable refs[edit]

Since this is not my subject I figured you might want to look into this: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?limit=50&title=Special%3AContributions&contribs=user&target=Magipur&namespace=&tagfilter=&newOnly=1&year=2016&month=-1 Wgolf (talk) 01:09, 1 February 2016 (UTC)

Bollywood's not my area - but sigh, it does look like it's been ongoing for a while. I'm surprised all those earlier articles managed to survive. Not quite sure where to start. Editor 2050 (talk) 01:19, 1 February 2016 (UTC)
Okay well-I did put up some prods already! Wgolf (talk) 01:40, 1 February 2016 (UTC)

Gautham Menon[edit]

What do you think of this section in the article? I created it, but I think it needs expansion and c/e. Kailash29792 (talk) 19:58, 2 February 2016 (UTC)

Sure, seems like an important section. I did the prose for the rest a few years back and I did ponder a similar section at the time - with subsections for his female characters, music & poetic titles. Not sure if I've got it saved somewhere. I'll c/e + add either way soon. Editor 2050 (talk) 20:41, 2 February 2016 (UTC)

Watch the POV and promotional language, please[edit]

Hi there, your edit here at Irudhi Suttru is problematic for a few reasons. For starters, you attempt to summarize the entirety of critical response without attributing that summary to a specific voice. It is not our place to cherrypick reviews and then summarize those cherrypicked reviews. Secondly, "highly positive reviews" is meaningless promotional fluff, and I can only assume you mean "widespread acclaim", rather than critics fainting in the aisles because of how great they think the film is. But even then, you'd have to attribute the summary to a specific voice. I'll also point out that your addition of "Behindwoods.com also gave the film a very positive review" is entirely absurd, considering they gave the film 3.25 stars out of 5. I'm not sure why you'd interpret a middle-of-the-road review as "very positive", but it reeks of promotional editing and this will not be tolerated. Same with your unsubstantiated statement that the dub of the film received "[unanimous praise for] the lead pair's performances." Completely inappropriate hyperbolic nonsense. Who decided it was unanimous? You? Also, did you even try to find a negative review to present a balanced picture? Surely someone must have had some negative criticism about the film's pacing, tone, cinematography, etc? Content needs to be written in a neutral point of view, not focus entirely on the rosy reviews. It is academically dishonest to only present one side when writing about subjective topics. Stick to presenting balanced information, please, not summarizing and editorializing, as you will quickly find your editing privileges revoked if your edits are again found to be promotional in nature or contrary to established Wikipedia policies and guidelines. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 16:52, 3 February 2016 (UTC)

Cyphoidbomb - Woah, woah, woah. Such a dramatic message. I understand where my writing on that article borders on excessive praise, but it really is reflected on the sources given. I'm not sure how familiar you are with the Tamil film industry - but the film has indeed received glowing reviews, comparatively to other films. Behindwoods.com, a reputable source for that matter, usually do not give films ratings above 2.75 stars. Comments like Completely inappropriate hyperbolic nonsense and you will quickly find your editing privileges revoked if your edits are again found to be promotional in nature or contrary are extreme to say the least. Editor 2050 (talk) 17:03, 3 February 2016 (UTC)
As a matter of fact, if I found any negative review, I would definitely add it to the section, if it was from a reputable source and contained useful facts. Kailash29792 (talk) 17:12, 3 February 2016 (UTC)

Draft articles[edit]

Did you know that you can create draft articles for up-and-coming subjects? This can work well especially for films that are yet to commence filming. Kailash29792 (talk) 07:16, 7 February 2016 (UTC)

Yes, haha. I have done that for a bunch of films in my sandbox over the last few years. Editor 2050 (talk) 12:59, 7 February 2016 (UTC)

Advice against articles on dubbed soap operas?[edit]

Please see Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Edit warring#User:Arnav19 reported by User:Kailash29792 (Result: ). The filer of the report, User:Kailash29792, asserts that User:Arnav19 is creating articles on dubbed soap operas, and this is contrary to usual practice. There is nothing in the report that would allow me to confirm that it's against our practice. Do you know more about how we handle dubbed TV shows, and do you have an opinion on this? Thank you, EdJohnston (talk) 00:38, 17 February 2016 (UTC)

Parvathy Nair[edit]

I guess her "fan" - User:Abhinand1234 is back to manipulating the article according to her desires, through a new account: User:Megamohan. What do you think? Kailash29792 (talk) 06:42, 20 February 2016 (UTC)

I hoped that improving the page would stop all that. Obviously not. Editor 2050 (talk) 11:51, 20 February 2016 (UTC)
What I asked was, do you think Abhinand is back through a new account? Do you think I should file a SPI case? Kailash29792 (talk) 13:31, 20 February 2016 (UTC)
Sure, go for it. Editor 2050 (talk) 15:38, 20 February 2016 (UTC)

Mani Ratnam's films[edit]

I have a physical copy of Conversations. If you want, I can share the pages with you, and that could help you expand the remainder of Ratnam's film articles as you've been doing of late. The book I have, however, does not include Kadal or OK Kanmani. Kailash29792 (talk) 08:06, 23 February 2016 (UTC)

Cheers, sounds like a good idea. I'm slowly looking to polish them all - especially the early ones. OK Kanmani is as good as done. Editor 2050 (talk) 00:00, 24 February 2016 (UTC)
Here are the pages for Mouna Ragam and Roja. Though the former is already a GA, an FAC is being planned (and several pages from the book don't seem to have been used), and the pages for the other films will be uploaded soon. Kailash29792 (talk) 06:41, 13 April 2016 (UTC)

Unsourced summary of critical response.[edit]

Hi there. I hate to bring this to your attention considering your experience editing at Wikipedia, but your edit here at Irudhi Suttru where you state that the film received critical acclaim, is unsourced. We are not permitted to draw our own conclusions about subjective matters like critical response, and then add that content to articles and present them as facts. That should be left to professionals, and such summaries should be directly quoted. The change you made is also in conflict with a summary further down in the article that describes the critical response as mixed and is supported by this reference. Frankly, I'm not a huge fan of summarizing critical response as well, so there is always the option to leave it out. (Although in this case, removing a sourced summary wouldn't be very useful.) Thanks, Cyphoidbomb (talk) 15:20, 10 June 2016 (UTC)

Autopatrolled granted[edit]

Wikipedia Autopatrolled.svg

Hi Editor 2050, I just wanted to let you know that I have added the "autopatrolled" permission to your account, as you have created numerous, valid articles. This feature will have no effect on your editing, and is simply intended to reduce the workload on new page patrollers. For more information on the patroller right, see Wikipedia:Autopatrolled. Feel free to leave me a message if you have any questions. Happy editing! Nakon 04:41, 1 July 2016 (UTC)

Kaatru Veliyidai[edit]

That the film will be made as a trilingual is a rumour. It's very unlikely that the film will even be dubbed into Malayalam. It happened with OKK too. Vensatry (talk) 06:18, 12 July 2016 (UTC)

Yes, cheers - I know that. Editor 2050 (talk) 12:00, 14 July 2016 (UTC)


Raadhika Sarathkumar[edit]

Do you think her article name should simply be "Raadhika"? Because she was famous even long before her marriage to Sarathkumar, and was for long referred to by her first name only; she still is. Kailash29792 (talk) 09:22, 14 July 2016 (UTC)

Yes, it should be just Raadhika. Editor 2050 (talk) 12:00, 14 July 2016 (UTC)

Unexplained reordering of cast[edit]

Hi there, in this edit you reordered a cast list without providing an explanation consistent with established guidelines (i.e. WP:FILMCAST). Can you explain your rationale in the future, please? This tends to look like a completely arbitrary change, like one made to match our personal preference. To give you some context, a year or so ago there were two editors fighting about whether Mammootty or Mohanlal should be placed first in cast lists. It was absurd. This is why we have guidelines for this sort of thing. Additionally, you removed the character description that Paraman is Anbuselvi's father. Was there a reason for this? We're not limited to only listing the character's name. Context helps readers understand the relationships between characters, which would be important if, say, someone was reading a plot summary. It would be appreciated if you'd please use edit summaries with all your edits--this is a collaborative project, and communication with other editors is crucial. Thanks. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 17:43, 22 August 2016 (UTC)

Sure - this was re-arranged as per the credits from the start of the film. The character description was removed purely for consistency with most other Tamil film Wikipedia articles. I guess a consensus could be reached at Wikipedia:WikiProject Film/Indian cinema task force. Editor 2050 (talk) 19:32, 22 August 2016 (UTC)
I appreciate the explanation on the ordering. I'll leave it alone. Consensus already exists for inclusion of brief character descriptions at WP:TVCAST. Regards, Cyphoidbomb (talk) 21:54, 22 August 2016 (UTC)

What decides the nationality of a film[edit]

It would be naive to say that the nationality of the majority of the cast decides the nationality of the film itself. It is the production studio that decides the film's nationality, but I think people here don't see it the same way. E.g.: Slumdog Millionaire has a largely Indian cast, but was produced by a UK studio, hence it does not qualify as an Indian film. As for any Tamil film produced by the UK-based Ayngaran International, what do you think? Kailash29792 (talk) 06:42, 11 October 2016 (UTC)

Films by Ayngaran are more widely released and marketed in India for Indian audiences, rather than in the UK for British audiences. Interesting question - but I feel that the "release and marketing" strategy is the prime decider in this scenario. Editor 2050 (talk) 10:39, 16 October 2016 (UTC)

2.0[edit]

Hi there, re: this edit, you do realize that The Hindu doesn't say that the film is only being shot in Tamil as you assert, right? It identifies the film as a Tamil science fiction film, but I think we both know that could very well be because The Hindu is identifying what industry it came from. I don't have an interest in changing it, I just needed to point out that the conclusion you drew is not explicitly stated by the reference. Regards, Cyphoidbomb (talk) 23:30, 15 October 2016 (UTC)

Hi. I'm sure there will be more clarity when a poster releases - but like the previous film - this will merely be a Tamil film dubbed and simultaneously released into Hindi and Telugu. Making readers believe it will be anything other than that is incorrect. Most of those sources that have been listed ie.indianexpress.com - have most likely taken the information from this incorrect piece of information on the Wikipedia page. Oh well. Editor 2050 (talk) 10:28, 16 October 2016 (UTC)
I wish they knew about the concept of fruit of the poisonous tree: "If an otherwise reliable source attributes information to an unreliable source then that information is likewise unreliable." And Wikipedia itself is not a reliable source. Kailash29792 (talk) 10:37, 16 October 2016 (UTC)
The trilingual content came from a reliable source that said explicitly that the film was being shot in three languages.[6] And as far as I can remember, this information predated the content in the article because we didn't know what languages to add until the source came out. Prior to that source, the film was being described as bilingual per this reference. Or at least that's what I remember. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 21:12, 16 October 2016 (UTC)
Hmm. Again these sources most likely got the information from speculation - none are from interviews and so forth. Shankar's recent films (note Enthiran, Nanban and I) are exclusively made in Tamil but are released in Hindi/Telugu on the same day. Even though the first look releases next month - I wouldn't be surprised if the first look reveals different versions of the film, as if it had been shot in different languages (like the completely Tamil Kaashmora had done in Kannada, Malayalam and Telugu [7] and the completely Malayalam Ezra has done in several languages [8]). I am sure an interview confirming such will trickle through eventually. Editor 2050 (talk) 22:21, 16 October 2016 (UTC)

Reflist - 2 switch[edit]

Howdy, re: this edit, as a general FYI, the 2 column switch for {{reflist}} been deprecated and disabled for mobile view. Community preference is that individual browsers should determine the number of columns based on screen size, rather than the page dictating an inflexible 2 columns for every browser/window configuration. "30em" is the standard default. Regards, Cyphoidbomb (talk) 18:21, 12 December 2016 (UTC)

Summaries of critical response[edit]

Hi, not to get on your case today, but I also happened to notice this edit where you summarized a film's critical response without providing a reference. Though I know you mean well, these sorts of statements really need to come from a reliable published source. Western film articles typically get aggregation summaries from RottenTomatoes and Metacritic. I know it's a problem for Indian film since the ICTF has not agreed on a suitable equivalent to these sources, but it's problematic if we attempt to summarize them ourselves for a couple of reasons:

  1. If we happen upon an article that has three positive reviews, we're taking a risk by summarizing that selection as positive because we might be unwittingly reinforcing someone's selection bias. If someone from the film's marketing department only posted positive reviews and we come in and say "the reception was mostly positive", that's entirely made up and may not reflect reality.
  2. If the summary doesn't come from a specific voice, someone could easily come along, add more negative reviews and re-summarize. It becomes a magnet for bias and promotion/demotion.
  3. We might be reinforcing our own biases. If I didn't like a movie, I might be less than earnest about trying to find positive reviews, and my resulting summary might accidentally reflect my own bias.

The matter has been discussed numerous times at WT:FILM and it seems fairly clear (per MOS:FILM#Film#Critical response) that the community requires these summaries to be attributed to reliable sources. Thanks and sorry for the hassle. Regards, Cyphoidbomb (talk) 22:05, 12 December 2016 (UTC)

The film is in production. It also features a notable leading actor and technical crew. Editor 2050 (talk) 12:34, 14 December 2016 (UTC)
Do reliable sources claim the film will be notable? Which India sources are notable I don't know. (In Poland sources about film do promotion rather than inform.)

Tamil wikipedia is far smaller, for the moment. Plus, I do not have easy access to Tamil font. It will be hopefully adapted in the weeks/months to come. Editor 2050 (talk) 13:02, 14 December 2016 (UTC)

Unexplained reordering of cast[edit]

Hi again, what's up with this reordering? What guideline is being followed here if the film hasn't been released yet (and thus, the onscreen credits can't be verified) and the theatrical poster doesn't have a billing block? Thanks, Cyphoidbomb (talk) 23:13, 22 January 2017 (UTC)

True. It was merely a presumption that Anushka gets the top billing considering her presence in the previous films, her leading role as Suriya's wife and her billing over Hansika Motwani in Singam II (another "second lead heroine"). Editor 2050 (talk) 23:19, 22 January 2017 (UTC)
Ehh, this has been changed numerous times without any rationale and the changes are not particularly constructive. It'd be appreciated if you'd please avoid these arbitrary changes. There are too many people's personal preferences and opinions to satisfy, which I think I've brought up before. Thanks. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 23:47, 22 January 2017 (UTC)
Sorry, what? The changes I made retracted those so-called "personal preferences and opinions" you mention. If you hadn't noticed, I cleaned the article up from the garbage that had previously existed - which you obviously must have forgotten to bring up before.

Character names[edit]

It is chaotic that the Indian media does not preserve information on character names in Indian films. But it is better to cite the film itself as source for the character name, eg: {{cite AV media | people=Fouladkar, Assad (Director) | date=May 15, 2003 | title=Lamma hikyit Maryam | trans_title = When Maryam Spoke Out | medium=Motion picture | location=Lebanon | publisher=Fouladkar, Assad}}. For more help, please see Template:Cite AV media. Kailash29792 (talk) 15:47, 21 February 2017 (UTC)

Kailash29792 Hi, I added a few verified links under the format you followed on the Ajith Kumar filmography page. But wait - why does each "name" need to be cited? In the Ajith article you have mostly reverted to this link [18] - which is just a brief summary of his films without any character names mentioned. Likewise Ramachandran's book on Rajinikanth does not feature any comprehensive list of character names wither. Editor 2050 (talk) 18:41, 21 February 2017 (UTC)
Can you please stop messing up the table? 'Raja's friend' is not a name; one might wonder who the heck is the guy (Raja)? Use common sense before reverting again. Vensatry (talk) 17:24, 22 February 2017 (UTC)

Vensatry - Messing up the table, eh? That sounds a lot like you. Please use common sense and stop behaving inconsistently with different articles. You have gone through removing sourced information without thinking twice. Just having a look at "your" previous featured filmographies:

  • Terms like "local school chairman", "himself" and even the hideous and lazy "unknown" seem to make the cut on the Rajinikanth page. Ramachandran's book doesn't even cite half the character names - yet you have found it perfect to go ahead with "unsourced" information.
  • Ajith Kumar's page casually states that he is "Shashi's co-passenger". Well, one may think, who is Shashi? Well, they just have to click on the page/link they are staring at to find out.
  • The recent Dhanush submission also has "himself" noted - even after you chose to go ahead and remove it from Kamal Haasan's table.

You seem to have a clear vendetta or you're just behaving deliberately inconsistent. I clearly remind you that this isn't a race to get as many featured lists as you want to have / add as many stars to your user page as you wish. Please look for accurate and clear completion, first. Editor 2050 (talk) 17:37, 22 February 2017 (UTC)

Race? If that was my sole aim, I would not have disagreed with you at all. Besides, I have already made it clear that I'm not willing to nominate/co-nominate the list (despite being the top contributor). I don't think any of the current editors in India are giving a tough fight to me as far as WP:FL is concerned. So all these are only going to make your accusations laughable. But before deciding on who's right, can we strive to ensure that the status quo is maintained? Not sure if I was the one who added the "local school chairman" bit in Rajini's page (I'm guessing that it was Ssven2/Kailash29792). Yes, these changes should reflect in other pages too. If you are too keen to change them, go ahead and make the necessary changes. All that said, agree with the 'himself' part. It seems you are deliberately violating WP:V. If this behaviour continues, be ready to face blocks. Vensatry (talk) 18:00, 22 February 2017 (UTC)
Vensatry - Wait, wow. I'm deliberately avoiding WP:V - despite adding all those verified YouTube links? Well, you seem to have incorrectly assumed that Ramachandran's book has all of Rajinikanth's character names listed - and then gone ahead and used it as a mass source. I should probably head to that page and remove all the character names - as none of them actually have a verifiable source. Is that okay? Should I do that? Would that be maintaining the status quo too? Editor 2050 (talk) 18:06, 22 February 2017 (UTC)
Well, this was you: [19]. Now tell me how is this not a deliberate violation of WP:V. As I said earlier, it's not a case of WP:OBVIOUS. Btw, where have I stated that Naman's book has the character names of all his films? It has been used wherever it was deemed applicable, not as a 'mass' source as you claim. To answer your final point, the list would not have passed the FLC if that was the case; it was scrutinized by editors who are at least ten times better than you at reviewing. What makes me even more surprising is that you fail to see the column being supported by YT links and Naman's book. Vensatry (talk) 18:16, 22 February 2017 (UTC)
Vensatry - How is that exactly violating WP:V? That was done because her name was removed without explanation. You cannot legitimately expect a film reviewer to list the name of every single character in their review - especially those who appear briefly on-screen. Now, tell me, how would you source that? I doubt any of those editors had access to Naman's incomplete book or were anal enough to scream for sources for each and every film from the 1970s! (while proceeding to insert their made up own character names - "Zamindar?" [20]) The column has 12 links to YT out of 160 Rajinikanth films. Let's say about 20 have been covered by the modern media and have online reviews. What about the rest? How will one ever know that Rajini was actually called Murugan in Kavikkuyil (1977)? Editor 2050 (talk) 18:29, 22 February 2017 (UTC)
Your claim smacks of naivety. You're editing here for six years without even getting the basics right, but I'm not surprised. The guideline clearly states that, even if you're sure something is true, it must be verifiable before you can add it. Further, the burden to demonstrate verifiability lies with the editor who adds or restores material. REPEAT: it lies with the editor who adds or restores material, and not with the one who removes it. Simply put, if you're unable to find sources for a claim it shouldn't be added. Is it that hard to understand? As for Naman's book, I'm sure you haven't read it. The book has the summaries of many of his films. In case of Kavikkuyil, isn't it clear that the film (and character name) is cited using 'Chapter: 1977' of the book? Care to check the free preview in Google Books? I own that book in my kindle. Not sure what your problem is. Vensatry (talk) 05:42, 23 February 2017 (UTC)

Oh my. Cool. I used an incorrect example there. I will go through and edit out any unsourced material. "Your claim smacks of naivety. You're editing here for six years without even getting the basics right, but I'm not surprised" - right, okay, cool. Also things like "stage actor", "roadside singer", "Babu's son" are ACTUALLY FINE when looking at featured lists like Brad Pitt filmography, Jessica Chastain on screen and stage or Charlize Theron filmography. That was the main problem I had with your activity - the insistence to take away material which helps pages look and feel more complete - anyway, it's up to you now. I wish you all the best on your process of accumulating badges and stars to your home page to make it look pretty and feel self-accomplishing. Editor 2050 (talk) 09:22, 23 February 2017 (UTC)

I'm at total loss here. If demonstrating the importance of WP:V and WP:BURDEN makes me irresponsible/inconsistent (in your dictionary), I'm happy to be categorised as one. Second, how on the earth are my actions going to ease the FLC process (so that I can accumulate badges to my user page)? Care to explain? As far as I can see, it's only to make it tougher. All that I can say is read WP:NOTEVERYTHING and WP:OSE. Re I wish you all the best on your process of accumulating badges and stars to your home page to make it look pretty and feel self-accomplishing.: Sure, but that shouldn't be a problem for you, isn't it? Clear symptoms of WP:BSI. Vensatry (talk) 11:57, 23 February 2017 (UTC)

Updated DYK query.svgOn 8 October 2017, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Y NOT Studios, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that S. Sashikanth was an award-winning architect before launching his own film production company, Y NOT Studios? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Y NOT Studios. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Y NOT Studios), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

Y NOT Studios[edit]

Hi E2050, re: this, sorry for the poor communication on my part. I didn't mean for you to infer that I thought you were connected, rather Chakdyn self-identified as CEO of the company. No slight against you was intended. My edit summary should have been more detailed. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 20:46, 8 October 2017 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Solo (2017 film)[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Solo (2017 film) requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page appears to be an unambiguous copyright infringement. This page appears to be a direct copy from sawnet.org/video/y060niSXfspA. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images taken from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites or other printed material as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If the external website or image belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text or image — which means allowing other people to use it for any reason — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. The same holds if you are not the owner but have their permission. If you are not the owner and do not have permission, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission for how you may obtain it. You might want to look at Wikipedia's copyright policy for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, 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 from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

@Yunshui: SQLQuery me! 21:09, 14 November 2017 (UTC)

For users with OTRS access, evidence is available at OTRS#2017111410009216. If you don't have OTRS access and would like to review this appeal, please email me and I'll give you the general gist. Yunshui  08:38, 15 November 2017 (UTC)
  • @Yunshui: - mailed you. Again, this is so unclear and a totally unwarranted, incorrect block. Editor 2050 (talk) 13:46, 15 November 2017 (UTC)
  • Editor 2050, we are still processing the evidence that led to your block, but in the meantime I have one question: what was your motivation for writing Arvind Vinod? Primefac (talk) 15:00, 27 November 2017 (UTC)

More information has now been provided via OTRS. Having reviewed it, I'm no longer as confident in this block as I was originally - I know now who the actual user this client was communicating with was, and I do not see any reasonable evidence that this account is a sockpuppet of that (long-since blocked) user. As such, I think it's reasonable to offer the benefit of the doubt in this case, and I have unblocked your account. Yunshui  15:18, 27 November 2017 (UTC)

    • Thank you for processing my request and the apology via e-mail. I am happy that the right decision has been made - but obviously disappointed about the initial accusations without any evidence. (cc: @Yunshui:, @Winged Blades of Godric:, @Cyphoidbomb:, @Dr. Blofeld: )
    • @Primefac: - Good question. This year, where available, I have tried to make the page "List of Tamil films of 2017" as complete as possible. So when a film has been released - I try and create a page for the necessary actors/technicians involved in the film project if they meet a certain criteria (ie. an actor who has appeared in at least three feature films, a technician who has worked on at least 7 films etc). If they meet this criteria, I have then tried to do the relevant research and create a page for the actor/technician in concern. Examples include pages such as Gopi Krishna (editor) during the release of Enakku Vaaitha Adimaigal (2017) and Varun (actor) during the release of Bogan (2017), amongst others such as Delna Davis, Yuthan Balaji, Swathy Narayanan etc. Arvind Vinod was merely another one of the chain (I was slightly surprised as this was his first credit in about 7 years, but I proceeded to make the article anyway because it was his third lead role). Hope this helps. Editor 2050 (talk) 00:13, 28 November 2017 (UTC)
      • It does. This seems to be a case of seriously bad timing. I'm glad it could be sorted out. Primefac (talk) 14:03, 28 November 2017 (UTC)

Hold your head high buddy and don't look back, ♦ Dr. Blofeld 08:17, 28 November 2017 (UTC)

That seems an entirely reasonable explanation, and further increases my confidence that I made the block in error (I wouldn't say it was "without evidence"; other OTRS agents have agreed with me that with the initial information there was more than enough evidence to warrant a block). For what it's worth, I apologise here as well; I'm sorry to have put you through that and - based on the explanation above and some further investigation last night - am now sure I was mistaken. Mea culpa. Yunshui  08:26, 28 November 2017 (UTC)
Welcome back, 2050! Cyphoidbomb (talk) 17:44, 28 November 2017 (UTC)
@Primefac:, @Yunshui: - guys, I have mailed you regarding the follow-up. This is all obviously quite disturbing and turning into a Black Mirror-esque episode. :S Editor 2050 (talk) 01:30, 29 November 2017 (UTC)
@Dr. Blofeld:, @Cyphoidbomb: - thank you so much guys! Editor 2050 (talk) 01:30, 29 November 2017 (UTC)

Administrative note[edit]

For the record, the concern initially expressed in the OTRS ticket that Editor 2050 was an undisclosed paid editor has turned out to be false (for various reasons). While it is unfortunate that a block had to be issued before everything got sorted out, I am glad that we have reached an amicable resolution and retained a prolific content creator.

Unsourced biographical information[edit]

Hi. Please don't add unsourced birth dates, as you did at Arav. This requires a citation to a reliable source. In a biography of a living person, this is especially important. NinjaRobotPirate (talk) 21:47, 23 January 2018 (UTC)

Shanmuga Pandian[edit]

Hi, I believe we can create his page as he already played hero in two films and the third one had its principal photography.Rajeshbieee (talk) 23:18, 2 February 2018 (UTC)

Editor 2050 - let's wait. Thamizhan Endru Sol has been stuck for nearly two years. I am sure he will soon sign another film - but I fear this may open the floodlights. If Madura Veeran goes on to become very notable, I guess we can create. Editor 2050 (talk) 23:30, 2 February 2018 (UTC)
Rajeshbieee - He is bound to do more films irrespective of the fate of Thamizhan Endru Sol or Madura Veeran as he is having the support of his father, a notable actor of Tamil films. For example, we don't know the future of Rameez Raja, actor of Vidhi Madhi Ultaa or actors like Nandanram Narayana or Vasanth Ravi, but Shanmuga Pandian is already a notable actor of Tamil films.Rajeshbieee (talk) 23:53, 2 February 2018 (UTC)

Nomination of Ashwini Chandrashekar for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Ashwini Chandrashekar is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Ashwini Chandrashekar until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. CHRISSYMAD ❯❯❯¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 17:18, 26 February 2018 (UTC)

Chrissymad - Hi. Could you please explain the caption here. Editor 2050 (talk) 17:33, 26 February 2018 (UTC)
Chrissymad - Could you exercise your discretion and kindly halt your deletions until the above is solved? Vishnu Priyan clearly passes WP:NACTOR, as does Ashwini Chandrashekar. Even if you go through removing their names from articles, it does not mean that they did not star in those films. Editor 2050 (talk) 19:06, 26 February 2018 (UTC)
Editor 2050 I'll gladly withdraw my nomination provided you can prove he actually meets NACTOR. CHRISSYMAD ❯❯❯¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 19:08, 26 February 2018 (UTC)
Chrissymad
  • Vishnu Priyan has had significant roles in thirteen films - lead roles in 8, and supporting roles in 5. That too across three different languages. [22], [23] and [24]. Also speaks at length about his career here in Tamil:[25]. A further write-up about his general career here: [26] and [27] Editor 2050 (talk) 19:26, 26 February 2018 (UTC)
Yeah, those are primarily passing mentions followed by an interview which aren't coverage. Bookmyshow is the equivalent of iMDb. CHRISSYMAD ❯❯❯¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 19:28, 26 February 2018 (UTC)
Chrissymad Still passes WP:NACTOR - "significant roles" and "multiple notable films" is enough - the sources on the page and above all show he was "significant". Several of those films had wide releases across South India. Not entirely sure how familiar you are with the Indian film industry to make a call on it, but those were pretty notable projects. Editor 2050 (talk) 22:48, 26 February 2018 (UTC)
No, it's not. None of it is substantiated by RS and there is no coverage. CHRISSYMAD ❯❯❯¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 23:16, 26 February 2018 (UTC)

Because I can directly link you to a deleted page which was commissioned and paid for, and for which you did not disclose. Primefac (talk) 17:50, 26 February 2018 (UTC)
 :Primefac - You took the same tone last time and were proved wrong. You followed a ridiculous, anonymous claim + blocked me for three weeks, and were subsequently proved wrong. I accepted your apology via e-mail, I explained the method I choose on creating articles and we moved on. What is it now? Editor 2050 (talk) 18:03, 26 February 2018 (UTC)
This time it's not circumstantial. We have an OTRS email from a customer where the company lists an article which you were the only editor on. You might be a prolific article creator, but if you take payment for even one article and do not disclose, you have violated the terms of use. Primefac (talk) 18:36, 26 February 2018 (UTC)
Primefac, the only deleted company article on my page is Abi & Abi Studios (created 26 November 2015) and even that is a redirect page to an article created by someone else. You will have to be more clear. Last time you fell for an anonymous troll post, and I ended up blocked for three weeks. Editor 2050 (talk) 18:44, 26 February 2018 (UTC)
Primefac Can you be sure the company letter is genuine or that they are claiming credit for articles they had nothing to do with. Also, are the other articles on the list likely or unlikely to be paid editing? Also is this otrs from the same person as the last one that led to a block and then unblock ? thanks Atlantic306 (talk) 18:55, 26 February 2018 (UTC)
To your first question, as much as I can be. To your second question, I don't know what "list" you're talking about; Chrissymad's nominations have nothing to do with this, and I'm not making any claims about any articles. Third question, no, this is a different person.
I'll be honest, I was surprised as anyone when I came across the ticket, but I just can't see any way that this isn't undisclosed paid editing. The only other option I can see is that a company that specializes in getting articles on Wikipedia just happened to see the page creation of a page right after someone emailed them to make the page, thereby stealing the credit (and money) of the subject. It's not impossible, but Occam's razor tells me to choose UPE. Primefac (talk) 19:18, 26 February 2018 (UTC)
Primefac I wasn't referring to chrissymad its just that not having access to the otrs ticket i assumed it was a list of paid articles but now I take it it was an invoice. Again can you be sure it is a genuine invoice from the company and not a fabrication? thanks Atlantic306 (talk) 19:42, 26 February 2018 (UTC)
(edit conflict) It's not an invoice, and no, there is zero reason to believe fabrication, because that would be silly. The person who emailed OTRS was complaining that their article had been deleted, and wanted us to do something about it (which of course we cannot do). Primefac (talk) 20:06, 26 February 2018 (UTC)
Primefac - you had "zero reason to believe fabrication" last time, too. You simply read a stray message and presumed it to be true. Then you found something stray online, and tried to convince me again. You were wrong all along - for all three weeks - and I faced the repercussions of a wrongful 3-week block. You faced nothing - no block, no demotion, no incorrect loss of dignity. The least you can do is be transparent. Editor 2050 (talk) 20:19, 26 February 2018 (UTC)
Primefac - again, I'm here to work with you, not against you. You got it wrong last time round - and I suffered as a result, while you carried on without a worry with your administrator duties. Could you kindly be a lot more specific (whether here or on e-mail)? Editor 2050 (talk) 20:00, 26 February 2018 (UTC)
(edit conflict) At this exact point in time, no, because I would prefer to keep the confidentiality of the customer. Besides, there isn't much more you could say that you haven't already said (based on the replies from last time and this time). Primefac (talk) 20:06, 26 February 2018 (UTC)
Primefac - Re:"there isn't much more you could say that you haven't already said" - what is this? I had to bring all the evidence (ie. a bunch of Google search results / explanations of the Indian film industry) last time around, because you jumped to a conclusion after receiving a stray and suspicious e-mail. There is obviously a lot more I can say on this issue or any other. Editor 2050 (talk) 20:40, 26 February 2018 (UTC)
27 February 2018

Atlantic306 - Thank you so much, by the way. Really appreciate your interest and edits on this matter - very grateful. Editor 2050 (talk) 20:26, 26 February 2018 (UTC)

Note: Just for anyone auditing this chat - please do help out if you can. Especially those familiar with Tamil films. So as per the above, there has been a complaint about a page being deleted - and someone has claimed that I was paid for one of those deleted pages. Funnily enough the same issue popped up in November 2017 - and I was able to quite easily clear my name, once people listened and told me what was really going on! I really do feel that if you're alien to Tamil cinema - you are unlikely to understand the finer details of the allegation. My only deleted creations are: actor Sai Dheena, actress Bhawana Aneja, actor Arvind Vinod, the film Ivan Yarendru Therikiratha, actor Hari Krishnan, and actor Nishanth. In November 2017, it was a proven scammer complaining about Arvind Vinod - so I doubt he's the case here (I will add a summary of that case later today, if I'm not cleared). Doubt it's the film either, so I guess the OTRS ticket relates to one of the other four artists - Sai Dheena, Bhawana Aneja, Hari Krishnan, Nishanth. Anyone familiar with Tamil films - will be able to understand that none of these four people/their associates are likely to get in touch via OTRS! Mainly because they are quite low-key / relatively rural-based. I feel there is a scammer / character assassin doing the rounds - like proven in November! Do state your views! :) Editor 2050 (talk) 01:55, 27 February 2018 (UTC)

Chrissymad query[edit]

I'll also add this since we're on the subject of TOU abuse: Editor 2050, could you explain why on an article you created, Editor2050 adds Praveen Antony, followed by Edit2060 uploading photos on commons of the subject and then lot of you, including Edit2020 are the primary editors on Praveen Antony?CHRISSYMAD ❯❯❯¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 19:22, 26 February 2018 (UTC)
Oh wow - just came to know of this. I have no links to Editor2050, Edit2020 or Edit2060 - I'm sure you can run a check. In the past some editors have openly admitted being influenced by my username like here [28]. Editor 2050 (talk) 19:33, 26 February 2018 (UTC)
Chrissymad Hi, how have you got access to the edit history of deleted articles as you are not an admin ? thanks Atlantic306 (talk) 19:44, 26 February 2018 (UTC)
(edit conflict) She asked me about it. As you may or may not know, Chrissymad is very active (and accurate) at SPI, and so generally when she asks something like "did user X edit page Y" I tend to oblige. Primefac (talk) 20:06, 26 February 2018 (UTC)
(edit conflict) - not accurate here. Totally unrelated. I can only presume that a fan/associate of film editor Praveen Antony was inspired by my user name. Again check user, if you must. Editor 2050 (talk) 20:44, 26 February 2018 (UTC)

Oshwah - Hi. Have you read through this entire thread in regard to the blocking? Have you also consulted Yunshui about this? I would really appreciate more details on the case. In November 2017, the same thing happened - and it turned out to be a scammer, who'd taken the administrators for a ride for three weeks. Editor 2050 (talk) 23:50, 26 February 2018 (UTC)
  • I have also reviewed the ticket, and endorse Primefac's block. TonyBallioni (talk) 01:02, 27 February 2018 (UTC)
    • TonyBallioni - I will try and provide a summary of the conversations that I had on e-mail with Primefac/Yunshui from November, tomorrow. Hopefully that will give a clearer picture. Editor 2050 (talk) 01:05, 27 February 2018 (UTC)
      • I'll ping Yunshui so they are aware of this, but as of now, the block looks on very solid grounds. TonyBallioni (talk) 01:06, 27 February 2018 (UTC)

November 2017 scam[edit]

Chain of events
Further accusations
  • On 28 November 2017, both Yunshui and Primefac e-mailed me and revealed that they had found this online – and thought I had cheated them and was in the wrong: <redacted>
  • I was glad they sent this over – as previously, I went two weeks without knowing anything behind the reasons of my block. I had been kept in the dark, while having accusations thrown at me. Through pretty basic Google research, I was able to find that:
Proof of scam

(1) The profile of <redacted> casted a doubt.

  • I am sure anyone with a basic knowledge of Indian cinema would have realised a scam purely with the inconsistency of the names involved.
  • Firstly, he referred to the trio as "our artists" - but I seriously doubted there was any association or common factor between the three actors:
    • (a) Aaditi Pohankar is a North-Indian, Marathi-based theatre artist who has signed a very big film in Mannavan Vanthanadi directed by Selvaraghavan. She has little-to-no knowledge of Tamil and is very unlikely to be using the same "manager" as the other two smaller artistes.
    • (b) Delna Davis is an actress who has been shifting between Malayalam and Tamil films - and has worked on small-budget films. A totally different league from both Aaditi / Arvind - way below the former and way above the latter.
    • (c) Arvind Vinod has only 3 film credits - Balam (2009), Madurai to Theni (2011) and Soora Thengai (2017) - with the latter having a delayed release as per online sources. Neither of the films are notable - and knowing the Tamil film industry - it is pretty much impossible to say that someone like Arvind Vinod will have a manager - let alone someone who is apparently guiding Aaditi Pohankar as well.
  • Secondly, the post was made on <redacted URL> 28 November 2017. Very conveniently after my name was cleared on my talk page. The person seems to have joined the site on the same day too. I have no idea how the administrators found the thread and posted it to me that quickly.
  • Thirdly, by chance, googling <redacted> - it very much seemed that the person had conveniently taken a name of a North Indian casting director from Mumbai: <redacted URLs>. While the real <redacted> seems like a legitimate person, I significantly doubt he will be managing the careers of people like Delna Davis and Arvind Vinod - both of whom are not even in the reckoning in the Tamil film industry, let alone Bollywood.

(2) A quick google search on the supposed catfisher <redacted> <redacted>

(3) The timing of my edits did not correlate to the accusations:

  • Looking at my history, it was very clear that the three articles were created in the space of three hours. Again the articles were created taking into account of my intention of making the "Tamil Films of 2017" page as complete as possible. Aaditi had just signed the big Mannavan Vanthanadi and Gemini Ganeshanum Suruli Raajanum, and had already appeared in 3 films prior to that. Delna Davis's Aakkam and Kurangu Bommai were in the news, which made me research her past and create an article. Likewise with Arvind Vinod - his 2017 film was his third lead role, so I created the page.
  • I was obviously on a roll of creating articles - and looking at my history - I created articles for actors of a similar mould in the days leading up to the so-called "event".
  • I then took a WikiBreak from creating because I had commitments in real life. I then returned and continued making articles for little-known actors in late August and early September with articles like Swathi Deekshith and Vivek Prasanna.

(4) I also provided Primefac and Yunshui of my real location, my whereabouts and my phone code – all of which contradicted the report on the site.

Conclusion
  • <redacted>
  • I also advised the administrators to contact "<redacted>" for the "bank statement, conversation on seo, email conservation" as he claimed, if they really wanted - as all of those would prove the whole idea to be baseless or that someone has catfished "him" using my Wikipedia edits.
  • Either this, or more eerily, a well-planned character assassination of me taken from my edits on Wikipedia. I am strongly beginning to suspect this is the case.
  • On 29 November 2017, both Primefac and Yunshui accepted my explanation and duly offered an apology for their incorrect assumptions.
February 2018
  • On 26 February 2018, Primefac blocked me again stating he received another suspicious message about a payment received for a deleted page. Till date, he is yet to provide any details of what happened.
  • I feel this is a shame - especially considering that I had to do the job for them last time round, after they had been scammed via an anonymous message and fully believed the claim. I honestly feel the same thing is happening again. Of course, I have not accepted any payment for any article whatsoever - and have created over 1100 articles on Tamil cinema.
  • Would like to hear your thoughts Primefac, Yunshui, TonyBallioni, Oshwah, Cyphoidbomb, Vensatry, Kailash29792, Srivin, Atlantic306, Ssven2, Rajeshbieee, Dr. Blofeld, Winged Blades of Godric, SQL.
    I told you before, and I'll re-emphasise: this case is entirely unrelated to the last. While it is unfortunate you were caught up previously, it has zero bearing on this existing block. I've also redacted a significant portion of your "reply" because you can't just slander someone post people's personal information like that. Primefac (talk) 14:30, 27 February 2018 (UTC)
    • But, Primefac - your accusations here are slander too. Can you at least be clear + specific as to what happened. You were easily fooled last time round, and it's happened again. I am trying to help you here - you have made another mistake. Editor 2050 (talk) 14:35, 27 February 2018 (UTC)
    • Also, how are you even making these decisions? Do you just read something and believe it? Like how you believed the rogue complaint page last time? There is not a chance of any evidence - because nothing happened. Editor 2050 (talk) 14:45, 27 February 2018 (UTC)
      Okay, so technically it would be libel not slander, and no, I have not said anything "libellous". I have intentionally and carefully worded my replies so that I avoid such a situation; I did not post the personal information of someone for all of Wikipedia to see. And you remember the second half of the phrase fool me once? I saw your name pop up and I made sure to eliminate all but the most probable options, because I didn't want to do this song and dance again. However, as I stated above, the OTRS ticket involved conversation between the client and what I'll call the "Wikipedia Editing Firm", wherein the WEF stated a now-deleted page where you were the sole contributor. The only other plausible option is the client asked WEF to create a page for them, and you just happened to have written it right after that, and then after the page was deleted the client asks WEF for the money back before sending the OTRS email; it's not entirely impossible, but the timing is so incredibly implausible that I have to go with Occam's razor here and say that you're not disclosing the fact that you have written articles for pay.
      You are of course welcome to make another unblock request, but keep in mind that two uninvolved administrators (i.e. they weren't involved the first go-round) have commented that the evidence for the block is compelling, so you will have to present some compelling evidence of your own to contradict that. I doubt a further rehashing of the November incident will do you any good, because that has already been resolved. If there is private information you are of course welcome to contact the functionaries or ArbCom (though the former is probably better). Primefac (talk) 15:38, 27 February 2018 (UTC)
Editor 2050, please do not resort to badmouthing. I know you could not have done something as cheap as COI, but speaking harshly to these admins may cost you your ability to request an unblock appeal. --Kailash29792 (talk) 16:33, 27 February 2018 (UTC)
