Massimo

Fabritius (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · logs · edit filter log · block user · block log) claims to be "H.E. the Prince Massimo, Prince Don Fabrizio Massimo Brancaccio"[1] and is adding that claim to Massimo He started by removing sources to insert his unsourced claim.[2] A couple IPs repeated Massimo's removal of sources to make the claim, while adding a source that gets vastly less GScholar hits than the one he removed.[3] [4] [5] [6] Fabritius then repeated the same [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16] [17] [18] [19] [20] [21] [22] [23] [24] [25] [26] eventually adding a sources before his birth and the websites of some private clubs (that don't seem to mention his claims) to "prove" he is the rightful head of the Massimo family. The page was locked and good deal of time spent on the talk page trying to explain Conflict of Interest and Reliable Sources to Fabritius, which he ignored.[27] Edward321 (talk) 00:12, 19 May 2010 (UTC)

Hi there; you have blocked this user as being a user of an open proxy. OK. He has posted an unblock request claiming that he edits from communist China and needs to be anonymous. Do we have a policy on this? I probably should know, but I don't.--Anthony.bradbury"talk" 19:55, 30 May 2010 (UTC)

OK, so that's why I don't know it. I note that you have already done an IP block exemption. --Anthony.bradbury"talk" 20:17, 1 June 2010 (UTC)

Calum

Hi Nishkid64, I've put together the material for a given name Calum page – but cannot create a page of that name because is is protected. Can you unprotect it please so that I can create the page? Thanks — Hebrides (talk) 12:26, 20 June 2010 (UTC)

Done. Nishkid64 (Make articles, not wikidrama) 17:59, 20 June 2010 (UTC)

Hkelkar again ?

Hello,

This IP: 117.194.193.101 may be him again. Due to this IP and 3 banned sockpuppets, I can't edit the article Hemant Karkare anymore: it is blocked. I left a wikialert message there: [28].

Thanks,

User UnclePaco

Hello, Nishkid64.

You blocked the user UnclePaco two years ago. I've recently filed an SPI against an account that in my judgment is a sockpuppet of his. At the SPI questions have been raised about user UnclePaco's blocking, however. Would you please comment at the SPI? It's at Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/UnclePaco. Thank you.

Checkuser

Nanappan Nalappat was blocked indef for his diatribe and bigotry in Talk:Nair. This WP:SPA user is using wikipedia to inflate enmity between two communities. He seems to be well versed with happenings in the article's rev history. Therefore, i suspect him to be a Bad-hand account of someone usually editing this article. Pls check this user to find the sock. Many thanks and regards. Arjuncodename024 18:28, 23 June 2010 (UTC)

Can you help?

An anon IP[37] continues to remove referenced information concerning Kurdish claims of Kirkuk being their capital. Continued calls for using talk page have been summarily ignored. Also, you should know this anon IP has used other IP addresses to vandalize my page and other pages edited by me.[38],[39]. --Kansas Bear (talk) 16:08, 30 June 2010 (UTC)



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

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.

What's New?
Current proposals and discussions
  • A discussion is underway here to reach a consensus regarding the use of Indian number names (lakh, crore etc.) in Wikipedia articles. Please participate and add your comments.
  • A discussion is in progress here in order to determine whether non-Western (including Indian) forms of classical music should be referred to by the nomenclature of art music instead of classical music. Please participate and add your comments.
  • Watchlist the Articles for Deletions page for India related discussions. Opinions from more Indian Wikipedians are required in many of the discussions.

If you've just joined, add your name to the Members section of WikiProject India. You'll get a mention in the next issue of the Newsletter and get it delivered as desired. Also, please include your own promotions and awards in future issues. Don't be shy!

Lastly, this is your newsletter and you can be involved in the creation of the next issue (Issue 2 – (July 2010)). Any and all contributions are welcome. Simply let yourself be known to any of the undersigned, or just start editing!

Looking forward toward more contributions from you!

CheckUser

I need you to do a CheckUser on Newtoo3. He claims (through an email sent through Wikipedia) that it is a "mock account" he created only to be able to send me that nasty, harassing email. He also claims to have used an IP from a library to send that email. Hopefully he created it at home and will be thus identifiable by his IP. Thanks in advance. Mr. R00t Talk 18:02, 22 July 2010 (UTC)

None of the pages he talks about in his email show up with my having edited them at any point. The only log entry is his account creation which I have provided: 18:34, July 19, 2010 Newtoo3 (talk | contribs) new user account. Cheers and good luck, Mr. R00t Talk 18:08, 22 July 2010 (UTC)

Need some advice

Following a simple request for page numbers[40] and quotes[41] concerning references of rather contentious material. User:Yalens has made two racist remarks concerning my ethnicity(or lack thereof);

  • "..you are not even Armenian and have absolutely nothing to do with it."[42]
  • "What is funny is that people like you and User:David Roman, who don't even seem to be from the Caucasus (your profile says you are a German-Scottish-English-French-somethingelse American; his name certainly sounds Western to me as well), get far more emotional.."[43]

Can you advise me where to report these racist remarks? Thank you. --Kansas Bear (talk) 21:47, 13 August 2010 (UTC)
