Thanks Gautam Discuss 00:39, 22 April 2007 (UTC)
No problem, it was on my watchlist so I saw your note right away... The new article will need some work... IPSOS (talk) 01:22, 22 April 2007 (UTC)
Sounds interesting, but not my cup of tea. I like Indian music, but know almost nothing about it but what my ears tell me. I will help with formatting and layout and the like if asked, though. IPSOS (talk) 01:27, 22 April 2007 (UTC)

Welcome to the Wikipedia 1.0 Review Team![edit]

Hi Gautam, Thanks for signing up to help. I apologise for being slow to reply, we've been very busy with the Version 0.5 release. Please let me know what you'd like to do, or just read the FAQ page and start reviewing. Thanks! Walkerma 02:25, 1 May 2007 (UTC)

Hello Professor Wakerma: Thanks for your note in my discussion. I am a Biology and Music student, and would like to edit or manage those articles. I hope to be of some help! Thanks. Gautam Discuss 03:03, 1 May 2007 (UTC)
Thanks for the swift reply. Interesting that you're a music student - I just went this evening to watch a senior recital by one of my friends who's graduating from the Crane School of Music (she did fine!). It would be great if you can review any biology articles, including adding your comments on this dinosaur list. I'd also appreciate it if you could nominate some suitable animals, birds, etc. Could you also consider putting together a set nomination of musical instruments? After Version 0.5 was put together, I felt this was one glaring omission - the only instrument we have is a Chinese traditional one. Can you help? These are just some ideas. Thanks, Walkerma 03:24, 1 May 2007 (UTC)
I also see a lot of music articles listed at Wikipedia:Release Version Nominations, you may be able to review those (I did piano). Regarding your question - I'm guessing that you're referring to the set nominations. I'll have to add a piece to the FAQ page on those. Meanwhile, look at the discussion under the dinosaur list, and you'll see the kind of thing - how important are the topics, how good are the articles, are there articles missing, or should some be omitted? That kind of thing. Regarding the single article reviewing - consider the importance of the topic, and then review the article to see if it's OK to include. For most topics of reasonable significance (like most of the music articles on the general nominations page), we look for a decent B-Class quality. That means we tolerate perhaps one of the common weaknesses - one major aspect not covered, poor English in places, poor referencing - but not all of these together. You chould be able to review an article in about 10-15 minutes. Thanks, Walkerma 06:52, 2 May 2007 (UTC)

The Raga Project[edit]

You may have noticed that I have started producing a [for a raga project]. My aim is to list all the major ragas by the end of the year, and add even some esoteric or less common ones as well. Gautam Discuss 18:51, 6 May 2007 (UTC)

The Raga Project pushes forth...I have done around 20 or so pages for Ragas using the template. Gautam Discuss 05:29, 9 May 2007 (UTC)
