Reversion on Campus Crusade for Christ

Could you advise me as to what my formatting errors were? I didn't think I'd made any major ones. Thanks 130.49.34.236 (talk) 02:05, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

See your edit references 34 and 35 are incomplete. Also, see the link in the section Major ministry divisions in the U.S.. I agree, the errors are not major ones. мαуαηк·αвнιѕнєк talk · contribs 05:57, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

RE: WP:3RR

I am aware of the rule. It also states that "Removal of libelous, biased, unsourced, or poorly sourced contentious material that violates the policy on biographies of living persons (BLP)" is not counted as reverts for the purposes of the three-revert rule. I followed the exception because the user is continuously trying to add unsourced content. Isn't this a case of exception? - Managerarc[talk] 14:02, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

I feel you should have added {{cn}} tags, instead of reverting 4 times. I do not feel that those edits counted as libelous or biased. Unsourced yes, but we deal with unsourced material by placing {{cn}} or {{fact}} tags. Those edits were from an IP addressess. It is highly unlikely that the editor was aware of WP:CITE or WP:BLP for that matter. мαуαηк·αвнιѕнєк talk · contribs 14:26, 17 November 2010 (UTC)
Ok, I'll keep that in mind. Thanks! - Managerarc[talk] 15:35, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

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

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.
