India locator map[edit]

Hi! I'm working on a high resolution SVG image of India. I don't know how long it will take, but if we can get it up soon, we could have locator maps for each and every city that has a geographical coordinate listed. Since SVG images are XML based, all that is needed to be done is to run a script that adds a dot on a new layer according to the coordinates specified. Is it difficult to program such a script? Regards, =Nichalp «Talk»= 06:26, 3 April 2006 (UTC)

I've drawn the outline of India, but still have to add the states. Since it's a hi res image, it takes quite a lot of time to draw it. I hope to finish it over the next weekend. (15th). Regards, =Nichalp «Talk»= 06:02, 4 April 2006 (UTC)
I'll be working on the map over the following weekend. I've just got a rough outline, and the states need to be filled in. I suggest you get familiar with Inkscape to test the output. The map in question is a hi-res one and manually adding a grid would be very heavy on the file size. Inkscape allows a grid overlay for alignment etc. Regarding the locations vs coordinates, inkscape does have an X-Y cordinate system. We'd need to get the longitudes of the extreme points of India and map it to the pixel value by making a special cropped image for this purpose. It shouldn't be too difficult.

Indian cricket team in Pakistan in 2005-06[edit]

Hello Ganeshk, the series ended two months ago and Yuvraj Singh was named man of the series? Or am I missing something and the two games in UAE have been added onto the series? Regards, Blnguyen | Have your say!!! 23:35, 3 April 2006 (UTC)

AWB question[edit]

Yes, to edit once every 15 seconds, you would need a bot flag to avoid flooding recent changes. Martin 07:47, 5 April 2006 (UTC)

about nakashi art...[edit]

Nakashi art did not evolve from warangal. While Cheriyal scroll paintings did. A form of Nakashi art was introduced by the mughals that has nothing to do with narrative scrolls: [1] then there is Pattachittra. --hydkat 09:28, 5 April 2006 (UTC)


Yes, the problem has been showing up at my end as well. Now, the only possible solution to this remains is to try out mIRC or xchat. I think they will work out with the proxy settings and the software that I have mentioned on my IndianIRC page. You must try out these softwares without installing the proxy connections first, there might not be any need for the proxy connection. Then again, I believe it probably would require the proxy. You can download mIRC from here, [2]. Regards, --Andy123(talk) 12:15, 8 April 2006 (UTC)

So, were you able to connect using Chatzilla? One user from Bangalore I know is able to connect without the proxy settings. Just use the proxy settings and the software to get connected to --Andy123(talk) 09:53, 10 April 2006 (UTC)

Thank you!
Hello Ganeshk/Archive 5. Thank you for your support in my RfA! It passed with a final tally of 91/3/5. I am quite humbled and pleased by the community's show of confidence in me. If you need help or just want to talk, let me know. Cheers! -- Fang Aili 說嗎?



Welcome to VandalProof[edit]

For the third time. Sorry we keep having such difficulties getting you on the approved list; I've hopefully got all of the moderator bugs cleaned up in 1.1. Once again, feel free to contact me or post a message on VandalProof's talk page if you have any questions. AmiDaniel (Talk) 06:36, 15 April 2006 (UTC)

VandalProof 1.1 is Now Available For Download[edit]

Happy Easter to all of you, and I hope that this version may fix your current problems and perhaps provide you with a few useful new tools. You can download version 1.1 at User:AmiDaniel/VandalProof. Let me warn you, however, to please be extremely careful when using the new Rollback All Contributions feature, as, aside from the excessive server lag it would cause if everyone began using it at once, it could seriously aggitate several editors to have their contributions reverted. If you would like to experiment with it, though, I'd be more than happy to use my many sockpuppets to create some "vandalism" for you to revert. If you have any problems downloading, installing, or otherwise, please tell me about them at User:AmiDaniel/VP/Bugs and I will do my best to help you. Thanks.

removing link spam[edit]


Saw you removed a few link spams from the external link section of the Andhra Pradesh article. Even I am against the links, but added as a temporary place for "" link while it is being debated. I have started a discussion on the worthiness of the link in the discussion page of the article, and I strongly believe that it should be deleted. The trouble is that even after repeated deletions, the link keeps getting added to the page (that too in the lead section), making the risk of an edit war. If you can also give your views on it, the consensus will be easier to arrive at. Thanks, -Ambuj Saxena (talk) 08:18, 16 April 2006 (UTC)

SVG map[edit]

Unfortunately I didn't get around to make any significant improvements in the map as I was involved with the improvement of Kolkata. I've uploaded a test file (there's no background as of now... creating the sea is a little tricky) Image:India-SVG-test-map.svg. Regards, =Nichalp «Talk»= 18:48, 16 April 2006 (UTC) |[edit]

Ref converter links[edit]

You are receiving this message because you are on the Ref converter spamlist

Ref converter has been updated once again. This time I have created "WikiLinks", which automatically generates a fresh list of articles with old reference styles that need converting. Just run WikiLinks, open up a bunch of the resultant links it give in separate tabs, and go through each tab one-by-one and convert those references. --Cyde Weys 06:44, 21 April 2006 (UTC)

Visakhapatnam article[edit]

Sorry to bother you, but I didn't link spam that article. It was there when I found it, if you check the history properly. Thanks for removing it though, I didn't catch it. --WikiPrez 23:39, 21 April 2006 (UTC)

I see. Thanks for clarifying that. If you read my user page, you can see that I'm relatively new to Wikipedia, so I didn't understand your abbreviation. --WikiPrez 00:11, 22 April 2006 (UTC)

Good work[edit]

Hi, I've read the article about Bandar and also included reference to the centuries-old Church. You might see it under the head "Culture" - "Diocese of Krishna Godavari". I've also made an entry of the mysterious Church under Tourism.

I've got some good photos of Bandar and hope to scan my negatives and upload sometime later. Bandar happens to be the home of my maternal grandmother born into an orthodox Hindu family. Later under the influence of the Christian missionaries, became Christians.--Pradeep 19:56, 23 April 2006 (UTC)

Overuse of refconverter[edit]

Unreflective use of refconverter is causing many problems, and in many cases actively harming Wikipedia. The tool is nice to have—in fact, it's the impetus for me creating my own "Citation Tool" (still alpha). But it is nice to have to aid editors who are actually involved in editing a specific article, and who have reached consensus about making a given type of change to an existing article. Unfortunately, the semi-bot is largely being used to make "drive by 'improvements'" to articles where editors either have not considered the citation style, or where they have actively decided on something different from what the tool produces. This is extremely disrespectful to other Wikipedia editors, and a gross violation of process.

I have not looked at your specific changes made using the semi-bot, but I strongly recommend that you follow a guideline along the lines of: "Use this tool only after consensus for a change has been reached on the talk page of the article to which it is applied!"

You may also want to take a look at User:Evilphoenix/ref conversion. This is a sketch of an RfC that may be filed to try to resolve this problem (I see no reason you might not opine there, even while it lives in userspace). Ideally, Cyde will back off his insistence on changing all articles, even where against editor consensus. But unfortunately, his attitude has only become more belligerent when I have repeated requests in this regard. I think a positive involvment of well-meaning users of the semi-bot might help matters resolve amicably. Lulu of the Lotus-Eaters 02:34, 24 April 2006 (UTC)

Ref converter RFC[edit]

You are receiving this message because you are on the Ref converter spamlist.

Hello there, I'd just like to make you aware that Lulu has filed an RfC against me and "other users of Ref converter". Since Lulu has previously contacted you regarding Ref converter I think it is safe to assume that you are one of the people named in the "other users of Ref converter" bit, so you may want to get involved. Just a heads-up, Cyde Weys 18:21, 24 April 2006 (UTC)

Now all right[edit]

Hello, Now I am all right. I am pasting a message below explaining my absence. Best regards.

"My dear friends, I regret that I could not notify you about my absence. Actually, I fell sick suddenly on the morning of 3rd April 2006, and was confined to bed and was not allowed Internet access. Now, I am more or less in "shape". The problem was very serious infection. I missed wikipedia and wikipedians for three long weeks, and I feel really sad… for first few days, I even dreamt of wikipedia! I think that in next few days, my wiki-life shall become normal. I thank you for the concern and care, I know wikipedians are the most active virtual community, and Wikipedia is Better than the Best." --Bhadani 10:11, 25 April 2006 (UTC)

District name format[edit]

I did that, thanx for letting me know. I actually followed the link from the India noticeboard. Regards, ImpuMozhi 00:14, 26 April 2006 (UTC)

Thanx for patiently guiding this witless wonder! ImpuMozhi 00:31, 26 April 2006 (UTC)
That voting/discussion page badly needs formatting, cleanup. It is very diffuse and confusing as it now stands. Do you think you could spare the time to fix it? Thanx, ImpuMozhi 00:34, 26 April 2006 (UTC)


I left my comments on the discussion page before its latest move. As I mentioned, I prefer to use standard English for Wikipedia articles, and "X District" is standard English capitalization for a political division; voting on a Wikipedia page is unlikely to change that. The arguments insisting on non-standard capitalization seemed pretty thin to me, so I checked a number of official district web sites to see what they did, and found that they used a variety of conventions (X District, X district, District X, etc). While I think that standard English should prevail in the absence of a compelling reason to abandon it, I think there is little harm in folks using a slightly different convention, so long we create redirects for all the likely iterations of spelling and capitalization (i.e. Balasore District, Balasore district, Baleswar District, Baleswar district, Baleshwar District, etc.).

something ambitious..a template for hindu mythology characters[edit]

I was thinking of getting some kind of template going for the Hindu dieties, demons, and mythological people.

Maybe something along the lines of:

  • image of subject
  • sanskrit name
  • and/or south indian name
  • other language name(ex King yama is also in jpn and chinese myth
  • affilation(s)
  • headquaters
  • weapon(s)
  • represents (ex yama is god of death)
  • relationships (related to)

I'm thinking it would look like the templates that music albums and video games use. That way, if some of those areas aren't filled in, they won't show up on the article.

Portal:India/Selected article[edit]

Regarding India Selected Article, there are many articles in the list that are not related to India, rather universal. Also, there are some articles that, though related to India, do not meet the critera for India SA. I have nominated 2 such articles as SA removal candidates. IMO, their selection as SA in the first place seems to be biased in the sense that the topic, rather than the SA criteria, were given more importance. Please see and comment. This SA list needs urgent attention. Regards.--Dwaipayan (talk) 14:07, 3 May 2006 (UTC)

Portal:India/Selected article removal candidates[edit]

Hi! The template for Portal:India/Selected article removal candidates was not made, and I tried to make it. However, the result Template:Pisarc is not ok. It is not functioning perfectly as can be seen in the talk pages where this has been put, for example, Talk:Raja Ravi Varma and Talk:Cheese. See that the template shows the name of the article once again at the end! I have already contacted Nichalp (talk · contribs) in this regard. You can also help to resolve this technical matter.

Many articles in Portal:India/Selected articles deserve to be delisted as they are either not india related or do not meet the criteria. I cannot but say that it seems from the list as if many articles were chosen by the whims of the editor Shyam Bihari (talk · contribs) rather than going through the prescribed procedure. Please see.

Ajith and Tamil actors - help request[edit]

Hello Ganesh, as a fellow member of Wikipedia:WikiProject Indian Cinema, could you look at Ajith, Rajinikanth and Vijay (actor), because User:Anwar saadat has complained that Nobleeagle, Zora, Pa7 and myself, who have all complained that the article was hagiographic and chronically used POV terms such as "mega-blockbuster", "mega-star", using magazine reviews as a objective fact, are unfit to edit this article on the grounds that we are ignorant of Kollywood (I'm presuming that is because none of us are Tamil, so that's why I came here). He also reverted User:David Crawshaw for removing "!" marks littered throughout the page, claiming "vandalism" and has threatened to report Zora and myself for "trolling" and "vandalism". Although none of us are familiar with Tamil cinema, we have been cutting parts out because of blatant POV, but he thinks that we aren't qualified, so I was hoping a person of Tamil background may be able to convince him. Regards, ßlηguγΣη | Have your say!!! - review me 03:07, 5 May 2006 (UTC)

He didn't just threaten to report Zora, he went to Zora's arbcom case and became an evidence puppet for those that are against her. That guy is seriously annoying me. Nobleeagle (Talk) 07:07, 7 May 2006 (UTC)


Hi! Could you please have a quick look of Darjeeling? Please give your suggestions in the article's talk page. This is for an internal review before moving to peer review. Thanks. Regards.--Dwaipayan (talk) 17:15, 5 May 2006 (UTC)

Your vandalism on Ajith[edit]

Locator images solution[edit]

Hi Ganesh, I've managed to figure out some values which might help you autoplace the values for the x and y coordinates. For simplicity's sake I've not included Andaman and Nicobar Islands and considered Pak-administered Kashmir. Here's the data:

  • Extreme latitudes: 08.066667N to 37.1N
  • Extreme longitudes: 68.116667E to 97.416667

I've produced a cropped map of the Indian mainland (1445x1610) (See Image:India-coor-locator.png which determines the actual pixel area of mainland India for your reference.

Subtracting the latitudes and longitudes to get the net area of India:

  • 37.1−08.066667 = 29.033333°
  • 97.416667−68.116667E = 29.3°

Co-relating the two:

  • 29.033333° = 1,445 px
  • 29.3° = 1,610 px

Since the map of India does not start exactly at the left and bottom margin, you would need to add an offset value to the final tally. I've calculated these values:

  • 18 px on X-axis
  • 68.5 px on Y-axis

I hope you find this information sufficient. Regards, =Nichalp «Talk»= 13:35, 7 May 2006 (UTC)

See also: Template talk:Superimpose, Template talk:Infobox protected area. I've made a test locator image, and have replaced the current one on the Mumbai page. Regards, =Nichalp «Talk»= 13:47, 7 May 2006 (UTC)

State maps[edit]

Hi! I noticed that you've done a pretty good job with the Kerala and Tamil Nadu maps. I have a request:

  1. The naming convention should be: India-STATENAME.svg
  2. The images should be uploaded to commons: under the following categories:
    1. Category:Indian states and union territories 2. Category:{statename}
  3. I also request you to release the images under the self|cc-by-sa 2.5, 2.0 and 1.0 licences so that it is compatible with all wikimedia projects.

Hi Ganeshk, thanks for the comments.

No Worries. Keep watching and Happy Editing. Cheers. ;) - Chez (Discuss / Email) • 06:05, 11 May 2006 (UTC)


Oops, sorry for the confusion caused. "About time" refers to the fact that I had already announced my inactivity/wikibreak on my user/talk pages almost a month back but waited for a month to see if I'll be still active. It doesn't appear that I'll find enough time before 2007, so my editcount(iti)s may be limited to 100-200 per month. Hence, I felt it was "about time" to move myself to inactive members. I'd be inactive but would still be around - I have several things to do, one of the most important being nominating you for the RfA sometime in June. --Gurubrahma 17:48, 11 May 2006 (UTC)

Graphic line in TN state assembly elections[edit]

Hi Ganesh,

Adding the graphic column in the middle was an excellent idea.

Even then, ur work is cool too. I'm leavin it that way. Cheers. - Chez (Discuss / Email) • 01:32, 14 May 2006 (UTC)

Hi Ganeshbhai - I'm very sorry to have disappointed your expectation in me, but it had become impossible for me to compromise my principles. I don't covet adminship at all, so it wasn't a difficult decision - I simply cannot accept misrepresentation and nonsense. However, I cannot tell you how greatly joyous I feel at the enthusiastic, wonderful support you expressed for me. I don't know how hard it will be to understand that your supports means extremely a lot to me. I thank you from my heart, and please let me know if I can ever be assistance or help in anything.

Dia Mirza[edit]

Hello, Ganeshk, I noticed you are active in the Indian Cinema Project and I'm desparately seeking for your help: There is a problem with several anons over at the Dia Mirza page who keep adding stuff, like endorsements and fansites. Things have gotten blown out of proportion in a really big way, as you can see on the discussion page. I had a lengthy conversation with both of them, the article got protected once and when things seemed to get betters, an admin who helped me, User:GraemeL, un-protected it again - that's when everything started to get out of control. User:GraemeL suggested I'd either ask people from the project for help or go to RfC, but I think that's the last resort, so I'm asking you and a few others for help. I'd be eternally grateful if you have time, to just drop a comment there and even, if it's just a tiny one. Best regards, a desparate Plumcouch 16:39, 19 May 2006 (UTC)

Sukh's RFA - Thanks![edit]

Thank you for your vote on my RfA. Unfortunately there was no consensus reached at 43 support, 18 oppose and 8 neutral. I've just found out that there is a feature in "my preferences" that forces me to use edit summaries. I've now got it enabled :) Thanks again. Sukh | ਸੁਖ | Talk 15:39, 20 May 2006 (UTC)

VandalProof 1.2 Now Available[edit]


After a lenghty, but much-needed Wikibreak, I'm happy to announce that version 1.2 of VandalProof is now available for download! Beyond fixing some of the most obnoxious bugs, like the persistent crash on start-up that many have experienced, version 1.2 also offers a wide variety of new features, including a stub-sorter, a global user whitelist and blacklist, navigational controls, and greater customization. You can find a full list of the new features here. While I believe this release to be a significant improvement over the last, it's nonetheless nowhere near the end of the line for VandalProof. Thanks to Rob Church, I now have an account on with SysOp rights and have already been hard at work incorporating administrative tools into VandalProof, which I plan to make available in the near future. An example of one such SysOp tool that I'm working on incorporating is my simple history merge tool, which simplifies the process of performing history merges from one article into another. Anyway, if you haven't already, I'd encourage you to download and install version 1.2 and take it out for a test-drive. As always, your suggestions for improvement are always appreciated, and I hope that you will find this new version useful. Happy editing! --AmiDaniel (talk) 02:24, 21 May 2006 (UTC)


Thanks, Ganeshk! What happened to the bot? deeptrivia (talk) 05:32, 21 May 2006 (UTC)


Thanks for making the maps. As far as the original locator map is concerned, it was always in commons: :) it's only mirrored in en: Regards, =Nichalp «Talk»= 14:19, 21 May 2006 (UTC)

Kerala map[edit]

It looks perfectly fine to me. What's wrong with it? Just one issue (I've not check the map): In inkscape, go to File > Document Preferences and click on the metadatatab. Ensure that the fields are updated. Regards, =Nichalp «Talk»= 16:03, 22 May 2006 (UTC)

He he he! :-) That's a sign that's it's from commons: without any text on the image namespace in en wikipedia. It's perfectly ok. =Nichalp «Talk»= 16:40, 22 May 2006 (UTC)
You'd need to purge your browser cache. The previous link is to purge the cache of my talk page. Just replace User_talk:Nichalp with the relavent URL, place it in your address bar and it should work. =Nichalp «Talk»= 16:47, 22 May 2006 (UTC)
