Weclome to Tamil cinema

Hi Bala,

I warmly Welcome you to the section of Tamil Cinema at Wikipedia. I saw your edits and it was great to see such valuable edits. Contact me at my talk page if any help required --M.arunprasad 06:04, 10 April 2006 (UTC)

Notable films only?

Dear NM,

I'm going to move your comment from the project page to the project's talk page, and reply to it there. What I'll be saying: people don't agree on which are the notable films and which aren't and, any list invites additions. I have seen this over and over on WP. Readers who are otherwise hesitant to contribute to WP see a list, know that something is missing, and add it. So the lists would grow to full filmographies rapidly. Zora 19:31, 16 April 2006 (UTC)

To Do #9 - Ilaiyaraaja

Thank you for taking the time to read the To-Do list on the Ilaiyaraaja page and to give your comments regarding awards and honours. You are correct in saying that the website of the Directorate of Film Festivals (India)( which apparently organises the Indian National Awards do not have an archive or database of past and present winners of the various categories of the awards (or that the website is 'down' -- it has been down for at least a year since I looked it up). Information keyed into is done by the public. So the credibility of what is stated there is arguable. However, given that there are no other more credible sources, then perhaps we can make do with Also, what I had in mind was finding sources which backup the statements made about Ilaiyaraaja getting this or that honorary doctorate or this or that Government award. I have not attempted to find sources for these (could be newspaper items or government reports etc.) I thank you once again for showing interest in this Wikipedia article. I appreciate your comments very much. I hope together we can make this a cool Feature Article :) AppleJuggler 14:30, 27 January 2007 (UTC)

Hi. Do you have a source that says that Ilaiyaraaja composed the music for this film? I believe the film credits state that it is Devendran. Can you please confirm? Thanks. AppleJuggler 14:11, 5 February 2007 (UTC)

I saw your editions on the Pallava and Pandya pages also linking them to a Tamil page. Good job! Would you like to join our WikiProject Dravidian Civilizations group? It would be of benefit to have someone who is proficient in Tamil or any other Dravidian language/ script to translate Dravidian related articles into that particular language. If you are interested please go to Wikipedia:WikiProject Dravidian civilizations and put your name in the members section. Regards. Wiki Raja 19:48, 25 February 2007 (UTC)

RE:WikiProject Dravidian Civilization..

No problem. Wiki Raja 17:57, 26 February 2007 (UTC)

Re: Arooj Aftab

Actually, I proposed the deletion of this article because I did not think this artist was notable enough to have an article. A few hours before deletion, I was asked to notify the contributors of this article about its deletion. You were one of the contributors of Arooj Aftab that is why you received the message.

P. G. Wodehouse tweaks

Hi, I just undid a couple of changes you made to some P.G.Wodehouse pages - I've been using quote marks for short stories and italics for full novels, to tell the two forms apart, I think this is the standard way this is done (it's the way the whole PGW section is at the moment anyway). If you think this is wrong please let me know and I'll fix it, JohnnyZen 17:14, 27 February 2007 (UTC)


Because of India's rich diversity, no one image can represent all of India's one billion people. That is why I propose selecting a new demographics image every three months. This would allow for a regional balance and would show India as a whole. Many people have agreed that this is the only way to represent India's rich and varied diversity. Since you have voted for a change in the demographics section, I wanted to update you on this proposal. I would love to hear your comments on talk:India. Thanks so much. Have a great day!

Regarding Madhubot

Hi there.

Umm, what exactly should I do now? (1) Update the userpage of Madhubot while signed in as Nmadhubala? (2) Submit the request for bot approval, again while signed in as Nmadhubala? Is that right? I am totally confused here, so any assistance would be appreciated! --Madhu 17:06, 23 March 2007 (UTC)

Yes. That's right. Just copy and paste {{unblock|[[Wikipedia:Bots/Requests_for_approval#Madhubot]]}} into User_talk:Madhubot when it's approved and the account will be unblocked. Thanks. --  Netsnipe  ►  17:10, 23 March 2007 (UTC)

I award you this epic barnstar in appreciation of your hard work in adding citations to support a number of statements in Chola Dynasty. Sundar \talk \contribs 06:08, 29 May 2008 (UTC)
Hi. Thanks for digging up the book and finding citations. Can I ask you to use the ndash instead of "pp 19-20" with a raw hyphen for the page ranges. Also, please do not put "see AUTHOR" in the footnote, because it's not what is usually done. It's also implicit because of it's a reference to us to look there. I have started fixing some of these, but please keep it in mind, while you are adding more citations. Also, why are you using "Geeta Vasudevan, p 5" when you listed the surname as just "Vasudevan" in the book list at the bottom? Keep up the good work. Blnguyen (bananabucket) 10:22, 30 May 2008 (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!

Proposed deletion of No Place Like Home (novel)

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article No Place Like Home (novel) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

non-notable per WP:BK

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{dated prod}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. -- Alan Liefting (talk) - 21:55, 20 October 2010 (UTC)

Nomination of No Place Like Home (novel) for deletion

Ambox warning pn.svg
A discussion has begun about whether the article No Place Like Home (novel), which you created or to which you contributed, should be deleted. While contributions are welcome, an article may be deleted if it is inconsistent with Wikipedia policies and guidelines for inclusion, explained in the deletion policy.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/No Place Like Home (novel) until a consensus is reached, and you are welcome to contribute to the discussion.

You may edit the article during the discussion, including to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion template from the top of the article. -- Alan Liefting (talk) - 23:13, 20 October 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.

WikiProject India Tag & Assess 2012 Contest

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.
