Request for peer review.[edit]

HP Nadigrige namaskaragalu, i am Tejaswi, a native of Uttarakannada. the article Namadhari naik belonging to Karnataka wikigroup, is edited by me and deals with the community history of the Namadharis/Halepaiks of Uttara Kannada. In creating this article i have referred to most of Kannada literature sources, some of which are really rare [ex; Bombay gazetteer in Karnataka: Dharwad,Belgaum,Bijapur and Kannara districts, Venkataramgo Katti; Kaada toreya jaadu: Autobiography of Kadidal Shamanna; Kagodu ondu nenapu, C.B.Chandrashekhar;The Nayakas of Ikkeri, K.D.Swaminathan;,Bimba-Pratibimba, Dr.L.R.Hegde;D.L.N Avara Ayda Lekhana, Kamala Hampana]. These form a necessary part of the glorious literary tradition of Kannada language and need to be seconded. hence i request you to kindly review the page.

offlate, i have been facing unilateral notices on the material without a proper knowledgable discussion on the topic. the member issuing notices seems to lack relevent knowledge in the subject and is defintely biased. but the warnings and unwarranted editing may lead to the page loosing out on the precious information derived from above mentioned sources. So i request neutral observers like you to review it and opinionate. thankyou

An Important Issue[edit]

Hello Mr. HPN, I have seen your name in list of bureaucrats of Sa.wikipedia, so I am writing this. Please see the case of my candidature of adminship at sanskrit wiki here [[2]]. It was closed based on merely inactivity (which also is a false reason). Nobody on sanskrit wiki could understand any genuine reason for keeping this candidate (i.e. me) from becoming admin there, you can see what was Mayur's(an admin) comment on that refusal("That was sad..."), also you can see what was comments by others, who all were in favour of my adminship. It is clearcut case of misuse of power of discretion by the bureaucrat MikeLynch. Since the single reason of inactiveness of mine is not at all a reason, because you can check that no single admin is active from last 3 to 4 months, not a single edit, let aside any discussion. And at the same time I have been helping Sanskrit wiki users in lingustic as well as technical sense continuously (before as well as after denial of my adminship request). Please tell your opinion on this case. You can see that the same MikeLynch has 'promoted' some other persons to admin with votes far less than sufficient. This is an important matter because I had some good plans for and have been working for uplift of the same from the time when no one used to come on that wiki. Currently there is no single admin active who knows sanskrit fluently, so nobody can properly serve a request which is written in sanskrit, there have been many cases when the sanskrit-knower users requested something in sanskrit and were served in some other way, i.e. request wrongly understood(in fact there is no admin active at all except for MikeLynch himself). I hope you would be able to justifiably decide in the case. Thanks. -Hemant wikikosh (talk) 07:34, 5 November 2011 (UTC)

I don't need to defend myself, but I stand by my decision. The recommended criteria for administrator tools is something around 500 edits, and though its not binding, and edit count is not a final indicator of capability, the user in question was inactive for large stretches of time. Suddenly if a user (who may have done lots of work before) comes out of the blue and asks for admin tools, how can it be given, when there is no clear indication that the user's standing has been good in recent times? I don't mean to question anyone's experience as such, I have, time and again, thanked Hemant for his work, and appreciated his deep understanding of the language. I have no PhD in Sanskrit, but I have a functional understanding of the language, and can very well understand it. I don't think I have received any requests in Sanskrit, but if I do, I shall be happy to answer it. I don't have to move around, with my marks card pasted on my forehead. When other users were "promoted" with lesser "votes", the situation was different, because we needed a lot of cleanup to be done to the interface. Besided, Mayur and Bhawani Gautam are very experienced users, with a proven track record. There are currently two active admins on the wiki (Mayur and me), and we frequently find ourselves out of any admin jobs to do. I don't mind giving the tools to anyone, as long as they demonstrate capability; how can I do so to a user, who, in the past weeks, has done little but discourage other users from editing, citing the "bureaucracy" in the "system"? In any case, why are we wasting time on such inconsequential ego matters when clearly, we have much work to do in improving the encyclopedia? Its no big deal. Lynch7 10:03, 5 November 2011 (UTC)
This is like a person does an offence against A and when A goes to court and spends his time to find legal solutions, and warns others of the offender then offender says that "stay! don't blame me! first see. This person does not have any other job than "going to courts", "discouraging others" and "wasting time". Hence A is eccentric ( <=== because he does all this), so don't believe him."
And for your kind information, the interface is yet not clean at all. You call it clean because you can't see funny "sanskrit" phrases appearing there. Most of the cleaning work was done by me and user:Shubha, who time and again suggested the right phrases for different places. Like this argument of cleaning, you have presented many false 'facts' in above comment, but I would not answer them because interested person can check the truth himself.
You need not answer much for this Mr. Mike because your side you have made 'clear' already. Just have some patience. If you have confidence on your ways then no need to worry. I don't want to waste time arguing with you (and your self-contradictory logic). -Hemant wikikosh (talk) 15:18, 5 November 2011 (UTC)
I never said it was clean, oh never. I merely said that the atmosphere at that time was different; there wasn't much activity then, as there is now; there was work to be done then, there is little maintenance to be done now. All the interface works which I have done, was suggested by Shubha herself; please don't give me credit for that. Lynch7 16:08, 5 November 2011 (UTC)
Look Hemant, I don't want to be the bad guy who pulls up statistics and lawyers his way out of things. Lets stop this, and work collaboratively. I have respect for your contributions, as well as for your knowledge of the language. Let's get you some more content contributions, and a decent stretch of time editing, and you can very well reapply again. No one likes to waste time fighting over these matters. (Let's also spare HPN of the agony of having to read through all this). Lynch7 16:31, 5 November 2011 (UTC)
I haven't had a chance to follow developments on Sanskrit Wiki much of late. However, I'm personally of the opinion that more the sysops, the merrier. Sysop right is not a privilege, but *huge* responsibility. It would be good to have more responsible people on board supporting and encouraging many more volunteers. If any user with a clean profile and with a past record of useful contributions to project is willing to take up the responsibility, there are definitely positives in encouraging it. I see that there are three well-known contributors supporting the request. Unless there is a strong reason, this should not be declined. H P Nadig \Talk \Contributions 16:51, 5 November 2011 (UTC)
Very well. I request him to reapply, as the request has expired (or not, if HPN is okay with me granting him the privileges right away). Hemant, I bear no malice towards you, hope the matter has been resolved. Lets work collaboratively Face-smile.svg Lynch7 16:59, 5 November 2011 (UTC)
Thanks Mr. H P Nadig for your liberal views and help. Anyway I also thank Mr. Mike for his understanding now.
@Mr. Mike. Regarding modality of giving adminship in this case, I don't see a reason to apply again because anyway the same users will support me again (pretty good chances), though I will have to spend time in contacting them etc. merely to reproduce the state which has already occurred, besides wasting time of those important contributors. If you really feel that matter is resolved then you can grant the rights based on the previous supports also, since many users have felt that I had met the criteria that time. Though I can write a one-line note for 'reconsideration of my request for adminship' to overcome the technical hurdle of expiry of the request. -Hemant wikikosh (talk) 11:44, 6 November 2011 (UTC)
Very well, I don't see need for the technicality. Lynch7 12:11, 6 November 2011 (UTC)

Mr. Mike, thanks a lot for this corrective step. Let's work collaboratively. Again many thanks to Mr. H P Nadig for giving his precious time and viewpoint. Regards. -Hemant wikikosh (talk) 17:17, 6 November 2011 (UTC)

File source problem with File:Mahishamardhini.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Mahishamardhini.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear.

If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the page from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of the website's terms of use of its content. If the original copyright holder is a party unaffiliated with the website, that author should also be credited. Please add this information by editing the image description page.

If the necessary information is not added within the next days, the image will be deleted. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please refer to the image use policy to learn what images you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. Please also check any other files you have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged.

आपके प्रबंधक अधिकार[edit]

नमस्कार। मैं एक स्टूअर्ड हूँ। हालही में समुदाय मतैक्य से प्रबंधक और प्रशासक जैसे "उन्नत अधिकारों" को हटाने के सम्बन्ध में एक नई नीति लागू की गई है। इस नीति अनुसार, जिन विकियों पर असक्रियता सम्बन्धी कोई नीति नहीं है, उनपर स्टूअर्ड प्रबंधकों की सक्रियता की जाँच कर रहे हैं।

आप sawiki पर, जहाँ आप एक प्रबंधक और प्रशासक हैं, असक्रियता के मानदंडों के अंतर्गत आते हैं (दो वर्ष से अधिक समय से कोई सम्पादन एवं लॉग कार्य नहीं)। चूँकि sawiki पर प्रबंधन अधिकारों की समीक्षा की कोई नीति नहीं है, वैश्विक नीति लागू होती है।

यदि आप अपने अधिकार रखना चाहते हैं तो आप समुदाय को सूचित करें कि आपको स्टूअर्डों ने असक्रियता सम्बंधित ये सूचना भेजी है। आपके समुदाय की चर्चा के बाद, यदि समुदाय चाहता है कि आपके अधिकार आपके पास रहें, तो कृपया स्टूअर्डों से स्टूअर्ड सूचनापट पर संपर्क करें। वहाँ स्थानीय विकि समुदाय की चर्चा का लिंक दें जिसमें समुदाय ने आपके अधिकारों का समर्थन किया हो, और साथ ही इन अधिकारों की आवश्यकता के कारण का विवरण दें।

प्रतिक्रियाओं की जाँच हम स्टूअर्ड करेंगे। यदि लगभग एक महीने के बाद तक भी कोई प्रतिक्रिया नहीं आती है तो हम आपके प्रबंधनीय अधिकार वापिस ले लेंगे। निर्णय में शंका की स्थिति होने पर हम प्रतिक्रियाएँ देखेंगे, निर्णय पुनः स्थानीय विकि समुदाय के चर्चा करने हेतु छोड़ेंगे और समीक्षा करेंगे। यदि आपके कोई भी प्रश्न हैं तो कृपया स्टूअर्ड सूचनापट पर हमसे संपर्क करें।

Please attribute or claim media you uploaded or restored: File:Mahishamardhini.jpg[edit]

You uploaded or restored , File:Mahishamardhini.jpg, but for various reasons did not add an {{information}} block, or indicate your (user) name on the file description page. Media uploaded to Wikipedia needs information on the SPECIFIC authorship and source of files, to ensure that it complies with copyright laws in various jurisdictions.

If it's entirely your own work:
please include {{own}} in the relevant source field, amend the {{information}} added by a third party, ensuring that your user name (or name you want used for attribution) is clear in the author field, and change the license to an appropriate "self" variant (if such a license is not already used). You should also add an |author= parameter to the license tag, to assist reviews and image patrollers. You can also add |claimed=yes and an |author=to the {{media by uploader}} or {{presumed_self}} tag if it is present to indicate that you've acknowledged the image, and license shown (and updated the {{information}} where appropriate).

If it's not entirely your own work, or the media is based on the work of others:
Please update the source and authorship fields, so that they accurately reflect the source and authors of the original work(s), as well as the derivative you created. You should also not use a "self" license unless the work is entirely you own. Media that is incorrectly claimed as self or {{own}}, will eventually be listed at Files for Discussion or deleted, unless it's full status is entirely clear to other contributors, reviewers and image patrollers. You should also read Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission which details how to confirm any permissions you obtained for works by others that are still in copyright.

Whilst this notification, relates to a single media upload, it would also be appreciated if you could ensure that appropriate attribution exists for other media you uploaded, You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log.

It's okay to remove or strike messages like this once the concerns have been addressed. :). ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 12:54, 8 July 2018 (UTC)
