Sri Lankan presidential election, 2015[edit]

You have reverted 3 times now. Any further reverts will result in a block per WP:3RR. If you add the banner back in, add it correctly. You are totally doing it wrong. Hint: It only take one line and less than 20 characters. If you don't know what you are doing, then ask questions. Bgwhite (talk) 07:42, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

WTF. What did I say about reverting? As I said in my summary. NO MORE REVERTS. Add in the tag correctly. Bgwhite (talk) 07:51, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
There is no need to get angry. If you have something to say it without the profanity --Eng. M.Bandara-Talk 08:01, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
I said no profanity. This is your last and final warning. Any more reverts, you shall be blocked. You just cannot revert somebody else's contributions and demand they talk when you didn't talk in the first place. You continuing to do blank reverts for pieces you do not like HAS TO STOP!!! Last and final warning. You revert, you will get blocked. Bgwhite (talk) 23:10, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
Excuse me, Bg, but I believe that "what the f***" is profanity. May I also point out that you seem to be involved in the edit war yourself? (You have made a total of five reverts today.) It may be best to disengage from this, as using your block button in this situation could easily be seen as violating WP:INVOLVED. --Biblioworm 23:26, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
Biblioworm WTF is not profanity. If I said fuck, then that would be profanity. Same goes for snafu and fubar/foobar. Eng.M.Bandara was reverting and not talking. They reverted because I removed an improperly added tag. That is not a reason to revert. They again reverted a HUGE addition because some of their stuff was removed. This is again not a reason to revert. Eng.M.Bandara said the other person should should talk if they removed Eng.M.Bandara's edit, but Eng.M.Bandara has no such problems reverting and not talking. Once again, Eng.M.Bandara has reverted without talking. They are now blocked 48 hours. Until Eng.M.Bandara learns that reverting everybody's edit is not acceptable, they will continue to be blocked. I have no stake in the article and could care less. I do care about reliable references being used and using the revert button instead of talking.
Note, this is not there only problem. They created E04 expressway (Sri Lanka) with made up and contradictory information. No references were given. The article is up for AfD. I said keep, but removed most of the info from the article. I asked another editor that deals with Sri Lanka to take a look and they have been adding information back in with references. Bgwhite (talk) 08:06, 18 December 2014 (UTC)
If you see the talk page on the article, and other users talk page, I have made plenty of attempts to discuss well prior to my reverts. ----Eng. M.Bandara-Talk 08:16, 18 December 2014 (UTC)
Two sentences and an accusation to Obi2canibe's message is not attempts. You didn't talk before your reverted, only when Obi2canibe talked. People do not do Wikipedia full-time and live in other time zones. You cannot quickly revert a few hours after you make a two sentence reply. Bgwhite (talk) 08:33, 18 December 2014 (UTC)
You are firstly involved in the dispute regardless of your position on the matter, and secondly the fact that you do not care about the issues shows you have no understanding of the dispute, despite involving yourself in it. Allowing Obi2caibe to remove well sourced and referenced material, in article in which weight is already significantly in favor of one side is not at all acceptable. Also his "HUGE" contribution as you described further tilted balance of the article towards a particular view. --Eng. M.Bandara-Talk 08:40, 18 December 2014 (UTC)
You need to start looking at your actions and not accusing others. Also his "HUGE" contribution as you described further tilted balance of the article towards a particular view.... that is the first time you have brought it up. "YOU reverted without talking. YOU only seem it is fair to remove other people's work without talking, but they can't yours. Obi2caibe didn't revert... YOU did. You had two choices, add back in your material or talk. Reverting was not an option. Wikipedia is a collaboration and you fail to understand that. You fail to understand you just cannot revert. Bgwhite (talk) 08:53, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

You have been blocked from editing for a period of 48 hours for Disruptive editing, as you did at Sri Lankan presidential election, 2015. Once the block has expired, you are welcome to make useful contributions. If you think there are good reasons why you should be unblocked, you may appeal this block by adding the following text below this notice: {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}}. However, you should read the guide to appealing blocks first.  Bgwhite (talk) 07:31, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

Request reason:

Blocking Admin is involved in the dispute, and has reverted the article more than 4 times,see this[2] --Eng. M.Bandara-Talk 7:39 am, Today (UTC+0)

Decline reason:

At this time I am declining your unblock request - were I to undo the block on procedural grounds (which I'm not at all convinced would be justified; Bgwhite has explained his reasoning to me and I find his points to be highly cogent) I would simply reapply it immediately on my own authority. However, I would be willing to unblock you on the condition that you agree to stop reverting the article, and to restrict your edits to the talkpage until a clear consensus emerges (you would be welcome to file an RFC, 3O request or other DR process to achieve this if you wished). If you are willing to abide by this condition, please file a new unblock request below, using the {{unblock}} template. Yunshui  09:47, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first, then use the {{unblock}} template again. If you make too many unconvincing or disruptive unblock requests, you may be prevented from editing this page until your block has expired.

Request reason:

I consent to the terms

Accept reason:

Okay, I'm lifting the block per the conditions above, on the understanding that any further direct edits to the page Sri Lankan presidential election, 2015 without clear consensus on the talkpage will result in its reinstatement. Yunshui  11:46, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

Eng.M.Bandara (block logactive blocksglobal blocksautoblockscontribsdeleted contribscreation logchange block settingsunblockfilter log)


Request reason:

I didn't see the socket puppet investigation about me. Also You should be aware that the username is a very common name in Sri lanka, and it is not unlikely for both editors to be editing sri lanka related articles. If I have been disruptive, this is not appropriate forum to bring that up, and also the allegation of disruption is in bad faith. --Eng. M.Bandara-Talk 05:02, 24 December 2014 (UTC)

Decline reason:

The similar editing area, similar username, similar behaviour and your early engagement in a not well known area WP:Peer review suggest very strongly that this account is a sock puppet. Callanecc (talkcontribslogs) 12:56, 24 December 2014 (UTC)

Request reason:

I like to read that, I read a lot that's I know about WP Review. But after reading the WP block appealing process, such as this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Give_%27em_enough_rope, I'd like to simply state, this the only account I will use and will not use any other account other than this. --Eng. M.Bandara-Talk 13:20, 24 December 2014 (UTC)

Before we go any further, I want a clear statement about whether you have used multiple accounts or not. PhilKnight (talk) 06:45, 25 December 2014 (UTC)

Is your last statement intended to concede or deny that you have used other accounts?--Anthony Bradbury"talk" 22:23, 24 December 2014 (UTC)
No it's pretty much intended to reaffirm that I will abide by the rules without admission or prejudice. --Eng. M.Bandara-Talk 05:51, 25 December 2014 (UTC)

{{unblock|@PhilKnight, I have already said I have not, and that username is an actual name, not just a username. But according the appeal guidelines there doesn't appear to any point pleading my innocence when your not going believe me. So all I was simply saying was I reaffirm without prejudice to abide by the rules and unblock me and we wont have any problems. --Eng. M.Bandara-Talk 06:58, 25 December 2014 (UTC)}}

Hello PhilKnight--Eng. M.Bandara-Talk 08:42, 26 December 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Karunasena Hettiarachchi[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.

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. This is a notice to inform you that a tag has been placed on Karunasena Hettiarachchi requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A3 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an article with no content whatsoever, or whose contents consist only of external links, a "See also" section, book references, category tags, template tags, interwiki links, images, a rephrasing of the title, a question that should have been asked at the help or reference desks, or an attempt to contact the subject of the article. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

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. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here.

Proposed deletion of Karunasena Hettiarachchi[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Karunasena Hettiarachchi has been proposed for deletion because it appears to have no reliable references. Under Wikipedia policy, this biography of a living person will be deleted unless it has at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp/dated}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within seven days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one. noq (talk) 07:54, 23 August 2016 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Karunasena Hettiarachchi.jpg[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:Karunasena Hettiarachchi.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F9 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the file appears to be a blatant copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted content borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

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. Dan arndt (talk) 05:38, 24 August 2016 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Karunasena Hettiarachchi[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Karunasena Hettiarachchi has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Fails to establish notability, in accordance with WP:ANYBIO. The only fact is that he is Secretary to the Ministry of Defence, which is insufficient to establish notability. Dan arndt (talk) 13:45, 5 September 2016 (UTC)

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Dan arndt (talk) 13:45, 5 September 2016 (UTC)

Hi there, I'm pleased to inform you that I've begun reviewing the article Sri Lanka you nominated for GA-status according to the criteria. Time2wait.svg This process may take up to 7 days.

Talk:Sri Lanka/GA1[edit]

Eng.M.Bandara, per the GA instructions, a nominator may not also review their own nomination. I have therefore nominated the review page you created for deletion; once it is gone, an eligible reviewer will be able to select the article for review. It may take a while for a new reviewer to be found; GAN currently has a large backlog. Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions. BlueMoonset (talk) 01:38, 5 October 2016 (UTC)

SAITM Protest[edit]

The article you've created doesn't really convene much information about the topic. It needs to provide some history, as well as the reasons for the protests, who are the parties involved etc. Dan arndt (talk) 13:25, 18 September 2017 (UTC)

@Dan arndt 100% either sockpuppets or meatpuppets. I'm sure the closing admin would notice it. --Eng. M.Bandara-Talk 08:59, 20 September 2017 (UTC)
