Naming conventions (geographic names)[edit]

Dear Nichalp,

I've just asked a question on the Wikipedia_talk:Naming_conventions (geographic names) page about the choice between Mumbai and Bombay for your article - how did you come about the decision to name the article Mumbai, when a majority of Wikipidians would impose Bombay, as it is the "most-known" name to the majority of English Wikipedians?

This is just a neutral question out of a discussion about creating a geographical naming convention. Your experience in the matter would, I'm sure, be much appreciated.

Thank you,

Cricket[edit]

According to what I dug up back in 2004 when Cricket became featured you were one or the only primary author of the article. Looking over it today it seems to only have 3 references and and no in-line citation. I'm sure someone will nominate it for reviewin due time. I was wondering, are you planning on getting the article back in shape? - Tutmosis 23:54, 22 September 2006 (UTC)

Mahawiki[edit]

Hi dear Admin,

This is to bring to your notice the wiki-feud I've been having with User:Mahawiki for almost one month now. It started with the Belgaum page which went to mediation, warnings were handed out to both parties, and when Mahawiki's incivil ways continued, Admin:Bluyugen handed him a warning and then a block. Find that here.

I do not want to turn the clock back and go through all those content disputes again. Infact, I dont want to present to you the details of any content dispute we've had. All I want to present to you is the brazen incivility and personal attacks being committed by User:Mahawiki either in the course of his content disputes or even simply just out of spite.

All the diffs(exhibiting his incivility and personal attacks) I provide below are from AFTER, I REPEAT, "AFTER". ADMIN BLUGYUEN INTERVENED, WARNED ALL OF US, BLOCKED MAHAWIKI AND SAID [THIS].

Please find below dozens of instances of blatant incivility and personal attacks by User:Mahawiki either on me or on User:Dineshkannambadi and all Kannadigas in general. His remarks are in extremely bad taste and counterproductive resulting in undermining of the good faith efforts of the other editors to carry on editing their articles.

While I dont want to go into each and every diff and explain it, just to give you a sample of his incivility, he has made edits where, even if only in jest or sarcasm, he makes atrocious claims like, I am on a kill Mahawiki mission, that User:Dineshkannambadi is the Kannada (Bin) Laden(sic). In another edit, even if only for jest(which I certainly dont find amusing nor appreciate esp., when it comes from him), he has threatened to sue me. He has called us cultural TERRORISTS, losers, notorious, shameless etc., etc. He uses the word vandalism like one would use 'Hi' and 'Hello'.

Find all the above and much much much more in the diffs I've provided below. Whats worse is his antics are going unchecked because Admin:Blugyen who knows about our feud is on a wikibreak and Admin:Sundar whose intervention I've sought more than once, is busy with other things(I presume, in real life) - which ofcourse, I dont hold against either of them.

But wikipedia will be a poorer place if brazen incivility like this goes unchecked for weeks simply because many admins dont know about it or the ones who know are by force of circumstances, too busy to deal with it.

I request immediate and harsh action on Mahawiki.

Once again, let me remind everyone that in the links below, none of them pertain to any content disputes. I belive in dealing with the content disputes on the relevant talk pages and dont usually bring it out on user talk pages.

Infact, I have even not listed below, the atrocious claim he made a couple of days ago that I had deleted and later undeleted an article. Also not listed below is his blatant removal of {{fact}} tags I had added in a couple of articles without even clarifying or providing a citation for the claim which I had tagged. Also not listed below may be umpteen other instances of incivility and npa violations on his part that I might have missed.

All the diffs below deal purely and only with his brazen incivil comments and personal attacks not just on me, but on User:Dineshkannambadi and also highly respected historians like Mr. Suryanath Kamath et al(who have been cited in some articles by Dinesh) whom he has trashed and dismissed in the most uncivil manner possible.

Apart from this he also makes disparaging remarks on Karnataka and Karnataka politicians who he keeps claiming are oppressing and torturing Marathi speaking people in Belgaum. This is not a content dispute, this is plain nonsense and insanely belligerent language.

His incivility apart, he has made it a habit and a routine to go around all over wikipedia branding me and Dinesh as 'Kannadi' vandals bent on Kannadizing all articles we touch. Ask him if we have included any uncited material or if we has ever cited any references for his numerous claims or whether he has taken it up on the article talk page instead of on a random user talk page. His answer will be negative. And yet, that doesnt stop him from going around shouting that we have been vandalising articles!!

Anway, I dont want to veer this towards the 'content disputes' which is a whole different matter altogether. Content disputes can always be discussed and agreements reached. Let me present to you just his brazen incivility and personal attacks.

Here we go -

India[edit]

Nicholas, India article desperately needs your help. Too many changes are happening, not sure who is watching over it. I request please check on it few times a week. Please...please. - Ganeshk (talk) 04:05, 9 October 2006 (UTC)

Yes Nicholas, I do agree. I want to watch ... but I found that many people perhaps dislike the fact Indians should watch India related pages! Ultimately, most of India related pages may become practical jokes. Regards. --Bhadani 15:36, 9 October 2006 (UTC)

British Guiana[edit]

The East indians in British Guiana were a different ethnic or racial group from the Portuguese when Guyana was in the British Empire. Why does it not say anything about this in the article entitled "East indians" Alec - U.K. 17:00, 9 November 2006 (UTC)

State maps of India[edit]

The state maps of India derived from the main map has a major problem. The Tibetan dispute is not included in this map. According to Tibetans, Tibet is an independent nation and it borders India and China. When the India map is drawn, Tibet need to be clearly shown and coloured as disputed.

hi[edit]

it appears u r back. before i forget, i wanted to tell u that Image:IST-CIA-TZ.png needs to be updated since Sri Lanka now is in line with IST and therefore the image needs to be redone. Since you have the originals, I suppose it shouldn't be too difficult to change. Idleguy 06:09, 18 November 2006 (UTC)
