April 2012[edit]

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. Everyone is welcome to make constructive contributions to Wikipedia, but at least one of your recent edits, such as the one you made to Sushruta Samhita, did not appear to be constructive and has been automatically reverted (undone) by an automated computer program called ClueBot NG.

  • Please use the sandbox for any test edits you would like to make, and take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Note that human editors do monitor recent changes to Wikipedia articles, and administrators have the ability to block users from editing if they repeatedly engage in vandalism.
  • ClueBot NG makes very few mistakes, but it does happen. If you believe the change you made should not have been considered as unconstructive, please read about it, report it here, remove this warning from your talk page, and then make the edit again.
  • If you need help, please see our help pages, and if you can't find what you are looking for there, please feel free to place "{{helpme}}" on your talk page and someone will drop by to help.
  • The following is the log entry regarding this warning: Sushruta Samhita was changed by Prof.Dr.A.Yeshuratnam (u) (t) ANN scored at 0.90745 on 2012-04-24T07:45:16+00:00 . Thank you. ClueBot NG (talk) 07:45, 24 April 2012 (UTC)

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute to Wikipedia, at least one of your recent edits, such as the one you made to Abbasid Caliphate, did not appear to be constructive and has been reverted or removed. Please use your sandbox for any test edits you would like to make, and read the welcome page to learn more about contributing constructively to this encyclopedia. Thank you.

Welcome to Wikipedia. We welcome and appreciate your contributions, including your edits to James Mill, but we cannot accept original research. Original research also encompasses combining published sources in a way to imply something that none of them explicitly say. Please be prepared to cite a reliable source for all of your contributions. Thank you. Sitush (talk) 03:19, 30 April 2012 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Comments:StartingPoints[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Comments:StartingPoints has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Original research

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 {{proposed deletion/dated}} 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 {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Speedy deletion nomination of Comments:StartingPoints[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Comments:StartingPoints requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person, organization (band, club, company, etc.) or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you.

July 2012[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. Everyone is welcome to contribute to the encyclopedia, but when you add or change content, as you did to the article Saint Thomas Christians, please cite a reliable source for your addition. This helps maintain our policy of verifiability. See Wikipedia:Citing sources for how to cite sources, and the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you. Sitush (talk) 05:59, 5 July 2012 (UTC)

Avoiding copyright problems[edit]

Hello, and welcome. While we appreciate your contributing to Wikipedia, there are certain things you must keep in mind about using information from your sources to avoid copyright or plagiarism issues here. I see that you have on several occasions placed content onto Wikipedia that had been previously published in other sources, including but not limited to material in Sushruta Samhita that had been previously published here and extensive information into Saint Thomas Christians that was previously published here.

  • You can only copy/translate a small amount of a source, and you must mark what you take as a direct quotation with double quotation marks (") and a cited source. You can read about this at Wikipedia:Non-free content in the sections on "text". See also Wikipedia:Referencing for beginners, for how to cite sources here.
  • Aside from limited quotation, you must put all information in your own words and structure, in proper paraphrase. Following the source's words too closely can create copyright problems, so it is not permitted here; see Wikipedia:Close paraphrasing. (There is a college level introduction to paraphrase, with examples, hosted by the Online Writing Lab of Purdue.) Even when using your own words, you are still, however, asked to cite your sources to verify information and to demonstrate that the content is not original research.
  • Our primary policy on using copyrighted content is Wikipedia:Copyrights. You may also want to review Wikipedia:Copy-paste.
  • In very rare cases (that is, for sources that are public domain or compatibly licensed), it may be possible to include greater portions of a source text. However, please seek help at the help desk before adding such content to the article. 99.9% of sources may not be added in this way, so it is necessary to seek confirmation first. If you do confirm that a source is public domain or compatibly licensed, you will still need to provide full attribution; see Wikipedia:Plagiarism for the steps you need to follow.
  • Also note that Wikipedia articles may not be copied without attribution. If you want to copy from another Wikipedia project or article, you can, but please follow the steps in Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia.

It's very important that contributors understand and follow these practices, as policy requires that people who persistently do not must be blocked from editing. If you have any questions about this, you are welcome to leave me a message on my talk page or to reach out to your campus ambassador. Thank you. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 12:20, 27 October 2012 (UTC)

The purpose of Wikipedia[edit]

Given the copyright issues, I have evaluated all of your edits to ensure that copied content did not remain in any article. In doing so, I've come to the conclusion that you may not fully understand the work we are trying to accomplish here.

Wikipedia is a compendium of what reliable, published sources have to say about notable subjects. While articles may express viewpoints and opinions, these are the viewpoints and opinions expressed in those reliable sources. We are not allowed to express our own opinions on these subjects in the articles.

The three core content policies are verifiability - that everything we add must have be "verifiable" to others; neutrality - that everything we add must be fair and balanced representations of what these reliable sources say about the subjects; no original research - that we must fairly represent what these sources say and cannot add our own interpretations or own discoveries on subjects.

It is absolutely essential that, like with the copyright policy, we all follow these rules. Those who do not, once the rules are properly explained, can not be permitted to participate.

It seems that you are very interested in making sure that Wikipedia's articles are accurate and balanced, by countering what you evidently see as inaccuracies or bias. This is a very valuable service, and I would encourage you to continue in that vein if it interests you. But please make sure that you do the following:

  1. Reflect information in reliable sources; see identifying reliable sources for how to tell what is reliable.
  2. Accurately and neutrally describe what those reliable sources say, in your own words, unless you are using a brief, direct, and clearly marked quotation.
  3. Tell others what source you were using. See Wikipedia:Citing sources for more.

If you need assistance as you go forward, I heartily recommend the Wikipedia:Teahouse. This offers a friendly environment for new contributors where experienced editors can help guide you.

If you have any questions about any of the above, please feel free to come by my talk page. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 12:42, 27 October 2012 (UTC)
