Hi. Please could you add a space after a comma. Thanks =Nichalp «Talk»= 08:18, August 29, 2005 (UTC)


I've moved the material that you added to a new article, and started a new article as Dandi (poet); I hope that that's OK with you. I've made Dandi a disambiguation page, and moved the article there to Dandi, Gujarat. --Mel Etitis (Μελ Ετητης) 23:32, 6 October 2005 (UTC)

Hindu-Arabic numerals[edit]

Hi! User:RN moved the article to Arabic numerals despite 28 votes favoring the title "Hindu-Arabic numerals" and only 17 favoring "Arabic numerals." He argues that if we don't count voters with less that 150 (or sth like that) edits, only 56% voters "support changing the title to Hindu-Arabic numerals", while at least 60% support votes are required. However, it was agreed between all parties in the beginning of the vote that the proposal is to move the article to "Arabic numerals" from "Hindu-Arabic numerals." It was also agreed (though I thought it was very unfair) that:

  • Those opposing the move have the advantage that it won't be moved unless there's a 60% majority
  • Those supporting the move have the advantage that the person proposing the move can do the *short* opening statement.
  • For all the rest of the voting procedure both parties are equal. (quoting Francis Schonken from 21:04, 18 December 2005 (UTC))

I would definitely have preferred it the other way round, since I think an opening statement makes a HUGE difference, since many people just read the opening statement and understandably don't bother with the discussion below the votes. The present situation was accepted with the agreement that the article will be moved to "Arabic numerals" only if more than 60% voters favored that title. Thus, only 40% oppose votes were sufficient to retain the title "Hindu-Arabic numerals." In the present situation (with over 60% voters opposing the change), I find the move to "Arabic numerals" ridiculous, besides being completely unjust and unfair. Your comments will be appreciated. deeptrivia (talk) 05:11, 29 December 2005 (UTC)

License tagging for Image:ChristopherLake Sunrise26dec06.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:ChristopherLake Sunrise26dec06.jpg. Wikipedia gets thousands of images uploaded every day, and in order to verify that the images can be legally used on Wikipedia, the source and copyright status must be indicated. Images need to have an image tag applied to the image description page indicating the copyright status of the image. This uniform and easy-to-understand method of indicating the license status allows potential re-users of the images to know what they are allowed to do with the images.

For more information on using images, see the following pages:

This is an automated notice by OrphanBot. If you need help on selecting a tag to use, or in adding the tag to the image description, feel free to post a message at Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. 04:05, 31 December 2006 (UTC)

Criticism of the Bhagavad-Gita[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Criticism of the Bhagavad Gita, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done for the following reason:

serves no purpose but to disparage their subject

Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not meet basic Wikipedia criteria may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as an appropriate article, and if you can indicate why the subject of this article is appropriate, you may contest the tagging. To do this, add {{hangon}} on the top of the page and leave a note on the article's talk page explaining your position. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would confirm its subject's notability under the guidelines.

For guidelines on specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for bands, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Regards, Gouranga(UK) (talk) 19:26, 12 February 2008 (UTC)

I'm sure that some scholars have criticised the Bhagavad-Gita, but I do wonder of the point in having such an article within Wikipedia. Imagine how difficult it would be to treat the subject in a neutral manner? Unless it's well-written right from the start I'd say it is too controversial to have at all. I hope you understand. Regards, Gouranga(UK) (talk) 19:29, 12 February 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Yakshagana Tala[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Yakshagana Tala requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be a blatant copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words.

If the external website belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must include on the external site the statement "I, (name), am the author of this article, (article name), and I release its content under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License, Version 1.2 and later." You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. bd_ (talk) 05:11, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

Hi, just to clarify - it's not enough to simply gradually edit the article - what needs to happen is the article needs to be completely rewritten, and then the offending revisions possibly expunged from the history of the article. Please read the Copyright policy. If the article is not sufficiently rewritten, it will need to be deleted to protect wikipedia from legal liability, unless the original author gives their permission to place it on wikipedia. --bd_ (talk) 05:33, 13 November 2008 (UTC)
Hi, thanks for responding on my user page. While I understand this is an interesting subject that probably deserves an article, Wikipedia simply is not allowed to keep articles that have their phrasing "borrowed" from elsewhere. While I see you have been editing things a bit here and there, copyediting isn't enough - what I'd suggest is you break down the facts you want to get across, then, without looking at either the original source or the article you have now, rewrite the article. Now go back and correct factual errors, etc. This should get an article unrelated in structure to the original source. I'd do it myself, but I'm not knowledgable about the subject in question at all, I'm afraid. --bd_ (talk) 05:43, 13 November 2008 (UTC)
Hi, glad to hear you're working on it :) Sorry for keeping you up, it's just that wikipedia has to take a hard stance against copyright infringement, or risk being sued. Since you're the only author, you're also free to request that it be deleted, and simply re-create it once you're ready with an initial article, if you prefer - you can use the {{db-author}} tag if you want to do so (replace the entire page with that one tag, and put a note in the edit summary as to why). This may even be the cleanest way, as it would remove the copyright infringing material from the history of the page entirely. --bd_ (talk) 05:59, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

Articles for deletion nomination of Media bias in India[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

I have nominated Media bias in India, an article that you created, for deletion. I do not think that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Media bias in India. Your opinions on the matter are welcome at that same discussion page; also, you are welcome to edit the article to address these concerns. Thank you for your time.

Please contact me if you're unsure why you received this message. hmwith 18:35, 26 October 2009 (UTC)

Raguks -- This deleted article could be re-drafted using the same or a similar title, but it must be written in a manner which mitigates a priori the impression that WP:OR or WP:FRINGE have arguable relevance.

In other words, if this article were to have encompassed inline citations and bibliographic reference source notes which demonstrated unassailable compliance with WP:V and WP:RS, its ultimate fate might have been different.

Perhaps the following paragraph will be helpful in establishing a context:
"The threshold for inclusion in Wikipedia is verifiability, not truth—that is, whether readers are able to check that material added to Wikipedia has already been published by a reliable source, not whether we think it is true. Editors should provide a reliable source for quotations and for any material that is challenged or likely to be challenged, or the material may be removed.

"Wikipedia:Verifiability is one of Wikipedia's core content policies, along with Wikipedia:No original research and Wikipedia:Neutral point of view. Jointly, these policies determine the type and quality of material that is acceptable in Wikipedia articles. They should not be interpreted in isolation from one another, and editors should therefore familiarize themselves with all three."

Are these familiar words? I would hope you recognize immediately that I copied them from WP:V. If not, then this gesture becomes a good step in a constructive direction. --Tenmei (talk) 18:31, 25 November 2009 (UTC)

Stop hand nuvola.svg Your addition has been removed, as it appears to have added copyrighted material to Wikipedia without permission from the copyright holder. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material; such additions will be deleted.

  • Recovering the content isn't a problem. The content itself is. I did a Google search of a sample of the text and it came back word-for-word from another site. It's certainly OK to write about the subject, but it must be in your own words with the other sites used as references. --PMDrive1061 (talk) 03:37, 17 February 2010 (UTC)

Request for peer review.[edit]

Raguks avrige nanna namaskaragalu, I am Tejaswi, a native of Siddapur, Uttarakannada. The article Namadhari naik belonging to Karnataka wikigroup, is edited by me and deals with the community history of the Namadharis/Halepaiks of Uttara Kannada. In creating this article i have referred to most of Kannada literature sources, some of which are really rare [ex; Bombay gazetteer in Karnataka: Dharwad,Belgaum,Bijapur and Kannara districts, Venkataramgo Katti; Kaada toreya jaadu: Autobiography of Kadidal Shamanna; Kagodu ondu nenapu, C.B.Chandrashekhar;The Nayakas of Ikkeri, K.D.Swaminathan;,Bimba-Pratibimba, Dr.L.R.Hegde;D.L.N Avara Ayda Lekhana, Kamala Hampana]. These form a necessary part of the glorious literary tradition of Kannada language and need to be seconded. hence i request you to kindly review the page.

offlate, i have been facing unilateral notices on the material without a proper knowledgable discussion on the topic. the member issuing notices seems to lack relevent knowledge in the subject and is defintely biased. but the warnings and unwarranted editing may lead to the page loosing out on the precious information derived from above mentioned sources. So i request neutral observers like you to review it and opinionate. thankyou

Tej smiles (talk) 18:33, 20 May 2010 (UTC)

I really appreciate your review of the Namadhari naik page. about the arrival alongwith Havyaks, it is still a hypotheses (just like the Havyaks themselves claiming that they were the 'Brahmins' mentioned in Talgunda inscription). But the popular belief in the region is the same and the ground realities that the Halepaiks and Havyaks all along history have formed the largest groups in the region all along the history and these being the only 2 groups finding continuous reference in the earliest of literatures (not to forget the traditions and sociological reasons), point towards that. I know as of now all of these dont lend any credence and mere popular belief cant be held to represent truth. thats the reason that i've placed it as one of the three theories. as and when further proof is available, it can be put up as the accepted theory. what do you say? looking for more inputs on the page from you. Thankyou.

Tej smiles (talk) 17:50, 21 May 2010 (UTC)

I will agree with later argument some what. It can be put as a speculation. But to put it as a theory needs thorough research work backed by literary or archeological sources. On the first part that Havyakas claim they are the Brahmins mentioned in the stone stab, the stone stab in question is of Varadahalli which clearly states villages they were put up in. There is extensive research available which have verified this, for its credence after matching vilages and family trees. You may refer to Havyaka wiki page and read "Havyakara Itihasa" by Vidwan Timmappa. This book will also give you reference to more sources to look in to Namadhari history. It is possible that Namadharis are mentioned in those sources as well. PS: It is important to write goood write up on Namadharis than to get hung up on some issues. So I will support your edits, so long as they do not seem biased.

~rAGU (talk)

Hi, I didnt know about the research on the basis of Varadahalli inscription regarding alotted villages and family tree. If that is the case then i take back my words on 'Havyak claim'. My info was based on the discussions i had had with my Havyak friends and their elders. they did king of give a semblence of legend without any proof and i treated it in the same manner. Even the Havyak history sites i referred to (one of them by Dr.Narayan Hosmane) didnt give ample evidence (so did Wiki page). But I do believe it has to be Havyaks. The problem with Halepaik history is that there hasnt been a thorough research on the subject, though a lot of references might be found in literary sources. The available materials too lack crdibility as they depend much on legends and hearsay (not to forget confusion about various terms in the first place). I hope this page on wiki serves as a future impetus to research on various aspects given in it, hence i've collated all info available in a single page. In these days where almost everybody wants to claim a glorious past n royal lineage my endeavour has been to make sense of the truth as it is. In that manner i've based the tone of my page on the lines of the Havyak page (neutral). I appreciate your ideas on the page, plz feel free to suggest more, and thankyou for the new links. You can be rest assured this page wont be having a biased line.

Tej smiles (talk) 07:53, 22 May 2010 (UTC)

Havyak History[edit]

In my search my sources i have usually landed up with a lot of info about Havyakas. Some of these i have edited into the page (ex; The old term for Uttara Kannada-Haiva and the resultant name 'Haiga' for Havyaks). But i have to mention here that i have been a bit wary of putting in info lest i shouldnt be misunderstood. Mentioning it in the discussion page would have been a good idea but some how i havnt done that too. You seem to be interested in the community page so i think i can give some of those links to you. 1rstly, the link for the term 'Haiva' is in the shloka, "Karatam cha viratam cha Maratam Konkanam tatha Havyagam Taulavam ch=aiva Keralam ch=eti saptakam" as well as in the Balagamve inscription of formation of Konkan as "Payve, Hayve or Haive 500". The inscription also talks about Parashurama-Jamadagni-Renukambe legend, the myhtological story about the origin of Konkan as being the boon of Shiva (Phanipa-Kankana-Varade), who it seems was wearing a hooded serpent as a bracelet, seven konkan being his place of abode & Haive as the bracelet (kankana) of the lady, the konkan., The dynasties of Kanara dist, J.F.FLEET.

Also the 1891 Gazzetteer of Bombay presidency of Kannada dists by Venkataramgo Katti has a good info about all communities in the district and their lifestyle. it can be used on the Havyak page.

both the above books are available for sale by Asian Educational Services, their site is

also, The people of India Series by the Anthropological survey of India has a full page on the community.

Jasminum multiforum/multiflorum[edit]

Fair use rationale for File:Kereetadavesha.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Kereetadavesha.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the file description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. J Milburn (talk) 02:18, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

I'm sorry, but some evidence of that license is going to need to be provided. Could you talk me through this? Where did you get the image from, who created it, how do you believe it is licensed, why do you believe that? J Milburn (talk) 10:58, 19 January 2011 (UTC)
I'm afraid permission for Wikipedia to use the file is not enough. Instead, the image need to be released under a free license. J Milburn (talk) 23:42, 20 January 2011 (UTC)
If an email from the copyright holder explicitly releasing it under a free license has been forwarded to the OTRS address, there shouldn't be any further issues. I don't have time to check that right now, but I or someone else will get to it in due course. J Milburn (talk) 16:39, 23 January 2011 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:Kereetadavesha.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Kereetadavesha.jpg. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file agreed to license it under the given license.

If you created this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:File copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. feydey (talk) 23:27, 25 February 2011 (UTC)

Improving Gamaka (storytelling)[edit]

If it is your intent to improve public knowledge of Gamaka, why not put some effort into improving Gamaka (storytelling)? The article is of poor quality now, and poorly sourced, so you could make a real difference in helping to make it clearer, better ordered, and with proper footnotes to WP:Reliable sources.

If you do so, I would strongly suggest that rather than just "write from memory" your personal views/knowledge of Gamaka, that you instead gather some good sources together (online or offline) to ensure that everything you add to the article can be traced back to a real book or article that readers can find if they need substantiation. Any fact you add that can't be readily verified by the reader is really not of great help to the article, whereas sticking to published sources will make it much more defensible for everyone. This would be a great way for you to bring more quality information about gamaka to the world. MatthewVanitas (talk) 15:55, 25 August 2013 (UTC)

Nothing I already don't know. I am dissapointed at wikipedia for putting all these bureaucracy and making it harder for people to add information.

citation would be good[edit]

I am glad to see your edit on ontology, but I think it deserves a reliable source or two, and you are the prime candidate for that exercise.Chjoaygame (talk) 18:51, 13 March 2016 (UTC) I will add sources. ~rAGU (talk)

April 2016[edit]

Are you all Sepoys? Showing up at your master's orders? I am asking a question! Stop vandalizing the article - removing edits even when I am adding references. Humans have different ethics but you guys seem to be so utterly ignorant and not interested in knowledge. Is information acceptable when it comes from your masters?Again I am asking a question. You guys are vandalizing and attacking me. Seriously, are you guys not sepoys? Answer the question. ~rAGU (talk)

Until this moment I had no idea what "sepoy" meant (according to a Google search it appears to mean an Indian solider serving under British orders). I'm going to assume then that you are using this as an insult and that in spite of the previous warnings you are engaging in personal attacks against other editors. You need to stop doing this. You will be blocked for this behavior. Looking through your talk page it appears that you have been engaging in this kind of behavior for a while now. Consider this your fourth and final warning.

I recite those Yajurvedic hymns referring to Bharatha Khanda or Indian continent (In the country of India in the Indian continent and to the south of the river godhavari - Bharatha Khande Bhaaratha varshe godavaryaha dakshine teere). Millions do this even to this day. So try to learn things you don't know instead of attacking people who add information and who correct you. Your pettiness will result in more ignorance ~rAGU (talk)
My role on Wikipedia is to make sure that recent edits to the entire encyclopedia are in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If they are not then I fix or revert them. I don't care about the content. I am not trying to improve the content of any article or increase my understanding of any subject in Wikipedia. I am merely working to make sure people do not abuse Wikipedia. Your edit that I reverted was against guidelines and potentially against policy. Your continued personal attacks are against policy. Not a single person has attacked you. Please stop your personal attacks and/or consider that Wikipedia might not be a good fit for you. SQGibbon (talk) 16:51, 30 April 2016 (UTC)
If your role is good then you should not support those who delete content without allowing editors to add references. All Kautilya does is to delete edits. I do not know you are doing this intentionally or inadvertently but I have described what the effect is. The region is called Indian continent in the Yajurveda Sankalpa mantras which I recited since childhood. Bharatha khande bharatha varshe - etc. It is hard to find references to ancient texts on the Internet but if Kautilya and his friends keep deleting and vandalizing the edits you seem to back it. There is no personal attack in a question. Asking a question is not an attack, if you understand English. Look at my contributions and I am not in the business of deleting others edits. I am adding information and adding references.

Indian Continent[edit]

You are the vandalizer. Not even allowing to cite and add references. Deleting edits. You look like a job less vandalizer. Your only desire is to write your POV and delete any edits made to this page. I will get you blocked. If you continue to delete edits without allowing to add references. Add need reference remark.

May 2016[edit]

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Indian subcontinent. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Please be particularly aware that Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing. BilCat (talk) 22:03, 5 May 2016 (UTC)

Your recent editing history at Indian subcontinent shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. To resolve the content dispute, please do not revert or change the edits of others when you are reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. The best practice at this stage is to discuss, not edit-war. See BRD for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

Indic scripts[edit]

Please see WP:BRD, and do not reinstate removed content without discussion. The Kannada script is already present in the article's infobox, and you're simply adding redundant lead clutter. WP:INDICSCRIPT was formed precisely to avoid lame language wars. Wikipedia's aim is to build an encyclopedia, not glorify your language, ethnicity etc. utcursch | talk 17:56, 9 September 2016 (UTC)

It is very clear you do not understand at all. I have no time to argue. ~rAGU (talk)
