Editing other's comments[edit]

Hi Sirdaar, just a tip, you should not have edited some else's comment here. It is against the policies. As the information provided there was already available on-wiki. If it was some information from a non-wiki website, then editing the comment could have been justified. --Vigyanitalkਯੋਗਦਾਨ 08:01, 24 November 2014 (UTC)

@Vigyani: Thank you for the tip. I'm still learning. However I also read on top of the same page, "Do not link to or include material that may reveal personal information about an editor. Doing so is outing and will be dealt with accordingly." The information removed thereof was not assisting outing of the contributors, and not relevant to the discussion. I would watch out in future and instead of taking an action, would ask the contributors themselves or ask for an admin intervention if need be. Thank you again for helping me learn something new.

Continuing from Talk:1984 anti Sikh riots[edit]

Hi, WP can be bit confusing sometime. But you can ask me any question you want. It can be sometime surprising about what we don't know. I once tried to initiate a discussion to change the title of Guru Nanak to Guru Nanak Dev. But it so happened that he is referred more as Guru Nanak as compared to Guru Nanak Dev. Regarding move discussion: Yeah it can not be last vote, as move discussion can be started as many time as one want. But if the new discussion doesn't present any new arguments or sources. Then it can be closed early. Regarding RfC on Talk:Punjabi_language: It so happens that regular users are convinced with references provided by Anupam. Because, those references are published by highly reputed universities. Other arguments such as "calling it a conspiracy by devnagari proponents" , "come to Punjab to see" etc are of no use. They are not valid in WP system. Thats not how WP works. So I tried to hunt down some academic references to oppose the inclusion of devnagari. --Vigyanitalkਯੋਗਦਾਨ 08:20, 24 November 2014 (UTC)

Template:Ping:Vigyani Thank you. Will surely reach out to you in the future.



It has come to my attention that there is a reasonable possibility that you were made aware of a Request for Comment on the Punjabi language article talk page through an off-Wikipedia email list. Please note that Wikipedia does not allow individuals to selectively notify individuals with the intent of influencing the outcome of a discussion in a particular way. Individuals who receive such emails are encouraged to disregard the contents of the message and leave a message on the individual’s talk page to stop engaging in such activities. Users who are found to engage in further canvassing may be brought to the attention of the administrators’ noticeboard. This may result in sanctions, including revocation of editing privileges. It should be noted that request for comments are closed based upon the merits of the comments presented and whether or not they draw upon Wikipedia policies and utilize reliable, third-party sources to support their statements. The discussion is not a vote, so the closure will not be decided based upon the number of individuals who support a particular side. I hope that this message helps enlighten you on our policies. If you have any questions about these policies, please feel free to reach me on my user talk page. Best regards, Mike VTalk 20:37, 26 November 2014 (UTC)
