Hi. I've just added a comment at Talk:Saṃskāraṃ, which has not been resolved yet.

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Redaktor Wikipedia 600px.png

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, will be commencing a two-month trial at approximately 23:00, 2010 June 15 (UTC).

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under flagged protection. Flagged protection is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 04:15, 16 June 2010 (UTC)

WikiProject India Newsletter Volume V, Issue no. 1 - (June 2010)[edit]

Project News

WP:IND Newsletter is back! It's been nearly a year since the last edition, but we hope to bring out issues on a more regular basis now. The India Wikiproject was set up to increasing coverage of India-related topics on Wikipedia, and over the past few months the focus has been on improving article quality. A number of the project's featured articles underwent featured article reviews over the past year. Of these, Darjeeling and Flag of India survived the review process, while the rest were demoted. During the same period, Gangtok, Harbhajan Singh, Darjeeling and Mysore were featured on the main page respectively on August 20, September 17, November 6 and December 29, 2009. Meanwhile, articles on topics as diverse as Political history of Mysore and Coorg (1565–1760), Marwari horse and Iravan were promoted as featured articles, and respectively appeared on the main page on March 25, May 17 and May 28, 2010. Consequently, the number of FA-class articles under the project's scope dropped from 67 in August 2009 to 63 in June 2010. The number of good articles, however, saw a more than 40% increase, from 91 to 130 during the same period, while the number of featured lists saw a 33% increase from 12 to 16.

Due to the recent policy changes regarding unreferenced Biographies of Living People (BLPs), an effort was started in January 2010 to source all unreferenced BLPs coming under Wikiproject India. 1200 such articles were identified initially and more were added to the list later. Due to the sourcing effort, the number of Indian unreferenced BLPs is down to 565 currently. During February-April 2010, There was a large scale disruption of Kerala related articles by a Thrissur based IP vandal. Editing from a dynamic IP BSNL connection, the vandal changed dates of birth, death and ages of a number of Malayalam and Tamil film actors. Later he added a few international biographies to his list. He also marked some living people like Arvind Swamy as dead. A month long range block was imposed on his IP range two times and each time he came back to vandalise dates once the block expired. Currently the range has been blocked for three months till September 11, 2010.

thank you and a note about category placement[edit]

First, thank you for your help in recategorizing Indian towns such as Singaperumalkoil. I know this is dull and demanding work. Second, I notice you sometimes place categories at the end of the article. Please note that categories should go before any stub templates or interwiki links. If you have questions about this, please see WP:FOOTERS. Best regards, --Stepheng3 (talk) 00:20, 2 November 2010 (UTC)

I don't want you to be cautious; I want you to be WP:BOLD. Please keep up your good work. Cheers, --Stepheng3 (talk) 15:44, 4 November 2010 (UTC)


Re the use of "obverse" and "reverse" for coins, of course I am aware that these are normal numismatic terms. The trouble is, there are different opinions about which side is the obverse and which side the reverse. I happen to think that the side where the deity is depicted is the obverse on these Panchala coins and the side with the legend is the reverse. Most numismatists would place the deity on the obverse, plus the shape of the coin indicates that the deity side was the one inside the anvil during striking, making it the obverse. This is the opposite of the way the article lists them, so I edited to allow the more neutral terms "one side" and the "other side." Note I did not impose my view, only switched to more neutral terms, which I think would be consistent with Wikipedia policy on controversial things. Rani nurmai (talk) 02:23, 8 November 2010 (UTC)

WikiProject India Newsletter Volume V, Issue no. 2 - November 2010[edit]

English WikiProject News

After a missed issue, the WP:IND newsletter is back on track to being a regular bimonthly feature. The Indian WikiProject has seen plenty of online and off-line action, both in English as well as other Indian languages, and we now have a bigger, better format that intends to feature content and news from the English as well as other Indian language Wikipedias.

Reaching out to Indians has been the theme of the Indian Wikiproject over the past couple of months, aiming to involve a greater number of Indians in editing both the English and Indian language Wikipedias. To this end, efforts to set up the Indian chapter of Wikimedia have moved into their final stages, and registration of the society is currently pending. An effort is underway to push for "WikiMarathons" at meetups, where attendees will be encouraged to edit the English and/or Indian language Wikipedias. This is intended to popularise Wikipedia editing among the general public. In addition, a bot to post DYK's from the Indian Wikiproject to Twitter was created and launched by User:Logicwiki.

What's New?

Regrettably, the number of Featured Articles has dropped from 63 in June to 58 at the end of October 2010. Several FAs came up for review and were delisted, while Fundamental Rights, Directive Principles and Fundamental Duties of India was saved. Meanwhile, Chalukya Dynasty appeared on the main page on July 9, 2010. Hearteningly, the number of Good Articles increased from 130 to 136 during the same period, while the number of Featured Lists remained constant at 16.

The source code for the Article Alert Bot is now available and the bot itself is expected to be up and running very shortly. This means that article alerts for the Indian Wikiproject will again be available, enabling editors to easily keep track of developments in respect of reviews, nominations, deletions etc.

The date change vandal mentioned briefly in the previous issue made a reappearance when the range block on his IP range expired in September. Consequently the block was extended till September 2011.

In October there was a heated discussion in the India project noticeboard regarding the copyright status of the Indian party symbols. The discussion was triggered by the deletion of Wiki San Roze's party symbol images by Hammersoft as copyright violations. No resolution was reached, partly because of our inability to explain to Hammersoft how election symbols in India differ from party logos. Comments are requested from anyone with a background in Indian copyright law to clarify this issue.

Madhya Pradesh categories[edit]

Hello. I recently diffused the categories of a lot of towns in this state. What was left was almost duplicated/parallel categories of Cities and towns in XXX district (many of which I created) and XXX as I didn't want to remove the XXX category before a bit more checking. Your changes seem the right way to go and I will be back shortly to complete the job. Regards (Crusoe8181 (talk) 04:22, 26 November 2010 (UTC)).

Wikipedia Documentary[edit]

Hi there

I am making a BBC Radio Documentary on Wikipedia and wonder if you know anyone that would describe themselves as being addicted to editing Wikipedia pages? Someone that can’t resist getting home, turning on the computer and editing more and more pages on Wikipedia. Please let me know if anyone springs to mind.

Best wishes

Hi Jayant,

You have quite finely stated regarding Shri Akrurji. As the previous article on Sri Akururji stated, Akrurji was the leader of Vrishnis during Shri Krshniji times and also continues to present times.

History of South Asia template[edit]

Hi, in the template these states are missing:

Also can you put the Sikh Empire out of regional category. Also regional empires should be changed to regional states sounds more neutral and accurate. It will be much better. Also French and Portuguese should be in the category of Colonial India.

WikiProject India Tag & Assess 2012 Contest[edit]

Hello friends, we are a number of editors from WikiProject India have got together to assess the many thousands of articles under the stewardship of the project, and we'd love to have you, a fellow member, join us. These articles require assessment, that is, the addition of a WikiProject template to the talk page of an article, assessing it for quality and importance and adding a few extra parameters to it.

As of March 11, 2012, 07:00 UTC, WikiProject India has 95,998 articles under its stewardship. Of these 13,980 articles are completely unassessed (both for class and importance) and another 42,415 articles are unassessed for importance only. Accordingly, a Tag & Assess 2012 drive-cum-contest has begun from March 01, 2012 to last till May 31, 2012.

If you are new to assessment, you can learn the minimum about how to evaluate from Part One of the Assessment Guide. Part Two of the Guide will help you learn to employ the full functionality of the talk page template, should you choose to do so.

You can sign up on the Tag & Assess page. There are a number of awards to be given in recognition of your efforts. Come & join us to take part in this exciting new venture. You'll learn more about India in this way.
