The Force is not magic[edit]

Just because someone uses the word "energy" doesn't mean they aren't talking about magic. Most people who use the word "energy" don't know what energy is. Just look at how New Agers use it. Serendipodous 13:14, 13 July 2017 (UTC)
To Serendipodous: Telekinesis is a common theme in science fiction. See X-Men or the Outer Limits as examples. Also check the commentaries on Ewoks: Caravan of Courage or Ewoks: Battle for Endor. These sci-fi fantasy films where their supernatural elements are distinguished from the force.--NadirAli نادر علی (talk) 16:56, 13 July 2017 (UTC)
The boundary between scifi and fantasy is blurry; superhero stories in particular owe more to Samson and Hercules than they do to HG Wells or Jules Verne. Serendipodous 17:38, 13 July 2017 (UTC)
To Serendipodous:, I'm not sure I agree about the boundary, but I agree more or less on the superhero part taking inspirations from fantasy. Thor is right out of that era. As in Thor (Marvel comics).--NadirAli نادر علی (talk) 05:01, 14 July 2017 (UTC)

Can I ask a favour?[edit]

Before you make another edit to Harry Potter influences and analogues, please watch this short Youtube video.

Also, your edits are shifting dangerously close to "How JK Rowling ripped off Star Wars," which is a fairly blatant POV. Serendipodous 13:14, 13 July 2017 (UTC)

To Serendipodous:, I did not change the text of the article, I simply updated the format of the references. All of them are reliably sourced. I'll watch the video. What exactly is your concern?--NadirAli نادر علی (talk) 16:54, 13 July 2017 (UTC)
Mainly I want you to consider the Hero's Journey. I'm not trying to stand up for Harry Potter here, but if you were to bring up Hero's Journey elements in contrast to Star Wars, you could just as easily argue that Star Wars stole from The Lord of the Rings, or that Lord of the Rings stole from Beowulf, or that Beowulf stole from the Odyssey, or that the Odyssey stole from the Epic of Gilgamesh. Serendipodous 17:41, 13 July 2017 (UTC)
To Serendipodous:, I looked at the video and learned nothing new. The hero's journey is something I'm familiar with and a hero with a thousand faces too. It's already mentioned that Star Wars is inspired by King Arthur, Bewulf and Lord of the Rings. I'm not familiar with Bewulf and only vaguely familiar with Lord of the Rings, but it's borrowings are listed. As long as everything is reliably sourced, I still don't see what the issue is.--NadirAli نادر علی (talk) 01:30, 14 July 2017 (UTC)

You're a really confused person[edit]

You just are. First you delete Arabized from Urdu. The YOU say, that "Oh it is Arabized, but it's via the Persianization—well some parts of it". LOL RaviVery (talk) 00:31, 12 August 2017 (UTC) RaviVery (talk) 00:31, 12 August 2017 (UTC)

Not sure what you are trying to get at. It did come via Persian and is simply a result of Persianization.--NadirAli نادر علی (talk) 02:55, 12 August 2017 (UTC)

It is Arabised. Get that thru your head. RaviVery (talk) 23:51, 13 August 2017 (UTC) RaviVery (talk) 23:51, 13 August 2017 (UTC)

Request[edit]

Greetings Mr NadirAli,

Nice to meet you.

Could you kindly help me write out this Marwari text?

Marwari sample John 3 verse 16.png

Your help would be fully appreciated, Thank you. --Philip J (talk) 09:49, 3 September 2017 (UTC)

Dear Mr NadirAli,
Could you kindly give both the Marwari Arabic and its latinised equivalent of the text?
Just try your best effort, Thank you. --Philip J (talk) 10:33, 5 September 2017 (UTC)
To Philip J: Alright I will. Just give me some time.--NadirAli نادر علی (talk) 22:38, 5 September 2017 (UTC)
Hi NadirAli, you can just give the Marwari arabic text for now if that is more straightforward for you, because the latinised version might be a bit challenging task for non-native speakers of Marwari I presume? --Philip J (talk) 10:06, 6 September 2017 (UTC)
To Philip J:, I don't speak nor understand Marwari. In fact it's the first time I learned of this language. Do you want me to give translation? I can't do that. I think Google translate is your best bet; otherwise see Category:Indian Wikipedians, there might be some users you can consult who speak that language.--NadirAli نادر علی (talk) 01:03, 7 September 2017 (UTC)
Hello NadirAli, I am not asking for a translation of the text, I just wanted to ask if you could help me type out that Marwari text because you are very proficient in the Perso-Arabic script. No translation is required at all. --Philip J (talk) 06:33, 7 September 2017 (UTC)
To Philip J: that makes it more clear. Give me a day or so and I will type it out. It shouldn't be a problem.--NadirAli نادر علی (talk) 06:36, 7 September 2017 (UTC)
To Philip J:, I tried typing this out using urdu keyboard, but it does not seem work due to orthographical differences. This could change the meanings of the texts typed out. I would recommend contacting a native speaker of the language or someone who is familiar with it's writings. Sorry that I couldn't help.--NadirAli نادر علی (talk) 02:59, 13 September 2017 (UTC)
