Regarding Reverting Edits[edit]

Hi, today I got a message from you saying that at edit from my IP address was reverted. Firstly, let me assure you that I don't have a problem with that. I personally didn't make the edit, and I admit that the edit was rather poor quality. However, I'm curious about the reason given for the edit: "... it introduced negative or controversial biographical material without providing a reliable source for this information." I may be mistaken, but I'm pretty sure that a car isn't a person. A better justification would be that the edit added no new information. -- (talk) 11:23, 14 August 2011 (UTC)


Dear Ranjithsutari, I believe there is a misunderstanding. You wrote:

Please refrain from using 'Demon' for 'Outcast'. One is Gandhi who calls the 'Outcast' as Harijan, another is you who says 'Demon'.

The word "demon" did not came from me, it is what is in the Article itself. I thought it is misleading to refer to disciples of the Buddha as "demons". That's why I want to show quotes from the Pali canon and scholars that the Buddha is not an Avatar of Vishnu and his disciples are not "demons" as in some text. Below is an excerpt from the article that shows the origin of the use of the term "demon" in the article:

"According to Wendy Doniger, the Buddha avatar which occurs in different versions in various Puranas may represent an attempt by orthodox Brahminism to slander the Buddhists by identifying them with the demons.[18]"

In some of the Puranas, he is described as having taken birth to "mislead the demons":

Why would anyone wants to call other people demons ? My comment was about the content of the article not any person. I posted the quote from Charles Elliot and the Pali canon, but was deleted by someone. That is why I post it in the talk page and discuss it with others first.

The word "outcast" came from a Swami who used this term instead of "demon" in the modern day to refer to Buddhist. I thought that is was an unsubstantial claim to refer to others as such. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Simpliciti (talkcontribs) 18:20, 25 September 2010 (UTC)

BAMCEF and citing sources[edit]

Hi Ranjith, I have gone through your addition to the BAMCEF article. Thanks for adding. I've made some copyedit changes without making any changes to the text.

I would like to make a suggestion. Try to use citation templates while sourcing the references. It is not necessary, but it gives a better and standard look to the article. To give references from internet, you can use the following template:

{{cite web |title= |url= |publisher= |date= |accessdate= }}

All parameters except title and url are optional.

For citing sources from books use:

{{cite book |last= |first= |title= |publisher= |page= |isbn= }}

Last and first stands for last name and first name of the author. Here too not all parameters are necessary.

Viewing WP:CT will help you greatly. Let me know if I can be of any help to you.

The Buddha and His Dhamma[edit]

Hi: It's very interesting that we share a very common interest. I saw your edits to The Buddha and His Dhamma. I started this article a few years back as you may notice from the history of the article. I had also added the table of contents: Check This, but someone deleted it as it seemed to be violation of copyright to them. You may copy the table of content from that edition and use it again adding some more information so that it should not look like violation of copyright by copy-paste. Thanks for working on this. Shivashree · talk 02:49, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

Hi Ranjith, received your message. I am glad to know that you want to make the article more comprehensive. The most important thing is the questions that Babasaheb raised must come in front of the world. I had tried to add this information in as early as August 2006 (See this). Then I was just a toddler on Wikipedia and my edits were reverted. We can add that information now in at least The Buddha and His Dhamma article if not in the article Buddha itself.
Also The Buddha and His Dhamma article has gone through a peer review once. You can take help of it. You can also request for a peer review after you have done with the article at considerable length to get suggestions from others.
Thanks once again for your sincere interest in my interests. We must become friends. It the best thing on idea when you see the banner at the top indicating 'You have a new message.' Thanks for doing it for me. Shivashree (talk) 03:40, 3 April 2010 (UTC)

Best Wishes for Ambedkar Jayanti[edit]

Hi Ranjith, Jai Bhim! Best wishes for Ambedkar Jayanti.

By the way, there is an ongoing discussion about renaming the article B.R. Ambedkar as Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar. Please give your opinion there. Thanks. Shivashree (talk) 03:24, 14 April 2010 (UTC)

Signing comments[edit]

Information.svg Hello. In case you didn't know, when you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion, you should sign your posts by typing four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment. You may also click on the signature button Button sig.png located above the edit window. This will automatically insert a signature with your username or IP address and the time you posted the comment. This information is useful because other editors will be able to tell who said what, and when. Thank you.

I read you comment on User:Yeditor's talk page. I am afraid he cannot reply you because he has been inactive on Wikipedia since 2006. It would be prudent to check contrib of the user to see whether he is active or not before leaving a message for him/her.

By the way, I once again read autobiography of Laxman Mane Upra (An Outsider), which is a milestone in Marathi Dalit literature. Once again, it was horrible.

"Castes in India" article[edit]

I will copy here what I wrote at WP:REFUND (because discussions from that notice-board get archived quite soon, and the links may be useful to you) and add some advice.

I have restored the article into your user space at User:Ranjithsutari/Castes in India: Their Mechanism, Genesis and Development where you can work on it. When you think it is ready, you might consider asking for comments by posting a message at WP:Requests for feedback. Before moving it back to the main encyclopedia, you should get permission from user Kurykh (talk · contribs), the administrator who closed the deletion discussion. If he does not agree, you can go to WP:Deletion review.

At present the article says nothing about the document - only that it was presented as a paper and then published as a book - with a link to the complete text. This is almost using Wikipedia as a way of publishing it; but one of Wikipedia's fundamental policies is that it publishes WP:No original research.

The article should give a brief summary of what the book says, but what is most needed is to establish notability by references to comment about the book by people independent of it and its author and publisher. Has it been reviewed, or been cited by others? See WP:BK. The point of the notability policy is that Wikipedia editors do not make value judgements about whether a subject is important or significant; we simply ask, have other people, independent of the subject, found it important and significant enough to comment on? Regards, JohnCD (talk) 11:53, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

I am very Thankful for you precious advice. I hope very soon this article will find a place in Wikipedia. Regards,--Ranjithsutari (talk) 20:06, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

Hi Diannaa, I appreciate you for emphasising on wikipedia copyrights and point out the copyrights of the article. Here I want to clear that source is an Internet based news article and qualifies as reliable sources, I have used some/brief text/quotations keeping in view of WP:Quotations#How_to_use_quotations. But I think as The exact statement are dialogue/speech words in a gathering, which will give perfect explanation itself to this section. I hope you will revert the change/deletion. Regards Ranjithsutari (talk) 13:04, 3 June 2010 (UTC)

Once again "Castes in India"[edit]

Hi Ranjith: I really appreciate your efforts contributing to Babasaheb-related articles, but I am afraid that the Castes in India article is not going in a correct direction. Wikipedia is a encyclopedia and not a collection of original sources or quotations (see WP:QUOTE). If you want to publish the complete paper, you can copy paste it on wikisource (I believe it's already there). As it is published in 1917, it is in public domain in USA where Wikipedia server is based. If you just want to quote just some excerpts, you may do it on Wikiquotes, which was almost no information about Babasaheb. On Wikipedia, we write about the things, not the things themselves. I do not want to discourage you, but Wikipedia is an encyclopedia and we must keep it such. Please let me know your thoughts. Shivashree (talk) 04:34, 3 June 2010 (UTC)

Hi Shivashree, I am very thankful for your appreciations. I'm presenting this article to give some space for complex points raised by Babasheb. In regard to its complexity it might not be possible to present it in others view. I hope this article is not presenting the complete source itself. I understand the mechanism of Wikipedia:Copy-paste. I hope this article will meet the WP:BK guidelines. Any further suggestions are requested on my works.--Ranjithsutari (talk) 17:23, 3 June 2010 (UTC)
This article certainly meets notability guidelines, I am not questioning it at all. As you may have noticed I myself had started this article a couple of years ago, but it was deleted then as I was a very infrequent editor at that time and could not take part in the deletion discussion. What I am concerned about is the structure of the article. The book itself becomes a primary source when we are writing about the same book. We should base our article more on secondary and tertiary sources rather than primary. WP:PRIMARY states that Do not base articles entirely on primary sources. The book is important enough that we can find enough secondary sources to make our article at least a good one. Also, the words like "I", etc. does not look good in encyclopedic content. You can get some help from Wikipedia:WikiProject Books/Non-fiction article. We must be more cautious because this article was deleted once and we will need to get permission from the deleting administrator before moving it to mainspace. Sincerely, Shivashree (talk) 08:32, 4 June 2010 (UTC)
Hi Shivashree, I hope this article is ready to move into Wikipedia Mainspace, I know this is not yet absolutely finished, but I hope when it will be moved, more editors will improve this article. I don't think this article is complete based upon primary source. However, it is surprising to note that most of the secondary sources reproduced this complete or partial book content same as itself, not even changing any punctuations marks. How interesting it is?--Ranjithsutari (talk) 18:14, 6 June 2010 (UTC)
I think it's ready to move. It needs some work to be done yet, but let it be open to the Wikipedia community to do. You just ask the deleting administrator before making a move to have a look at the article. I am quite busy nowadays in my professional life and not able to find much time to work on larger projects. Thanks for retrieving this article from the deletion.

P.s. I am copy-pasting this whole discussion to the article talk page to make it available for those who might be interested in the work you did before bringing this article to mainspace. Shivashree (talk) 04:48, 9 June 2010 (UTC)

V S Achuthanandan Ministry[edit]

I reverted bakc the changes you made on the article V S Achuthanandan Ministry. This is how each ministry is popularly known as and easy for some to search and find the article (rather than remembering the number of the ministry etc - which will be more complicated) Also in the newspapares and all while referreing to a minister or mentioning about a new law etc it's used to mention as 'a minister in Nayanar Minsistry' or law introduced during 'A K Antony Ministry' Please feel free to discuss. Gopaalan (talk) 12:23, 30 June 2010 (UTC)

Namaskaram Gopaalan, I agree with your concern over the usage of various common terms in news papers. But we should not forget that all of those names used in news are alternate names used to present things very simple or fantastic. Here take a look at this Example Here this article is not named by their leader name or by the name of the political party to which they belong. Here in this Page you cannot find any redirect by the name of Manmohan Singh Ministry or Congress Ministry. Whatever if you insists that V S Achuthanandan Ministry is very fanciful name, then we can keep a redirect to any Proper name(like:Twelfth Kerala Legislative Assembly Council of Ministers) which comes under WP:Naming_conventions#Neutrality_and_article_titles . I hope you will give a positive response.--Ranjithsutari (talk) 20:39, 30 June 2010 (UTC)
Thanks Ranjith. I appreaciate your response. I've been addidng a few topic under List of Kerala ministers. My logic was if someone searches by words like Achuthanandan, A K Antony etc this ministry list would also come up. then they know such a topic exists and in future they will return to the topic for the info. It would be hard to search the same page with the article name(which is technically correct) you used. will see you around. cheers. Gopaalan (talk) 23:01, 2 July 2010 (UTC)
Namaskaram Gopaalan, I acknowledge your contribution to Wikipedia. Keeping a redirect for alternate name will solve the problem, because now you may not have any conflict, but someone may think it as crap as it doesn't follow WP:UCN. I see few more acticle with same subject, so you should consider the previous article before creating new articles. Sometimes, creating a redirect will solve all the problems, and doing this will put all the important information at one page. By the bye, nice to meet you--Ranjithsutari (talk) 07:31, 3 July 2010 (UTC)

Antoni Baranowski(General)[edit]

Greetings and thank You for Your comments on the article! Unfortunately, at the time we do not have much more time to seek for more sources regarding the General, this article is a STUB and its related to the article of "Ostoja coat of arms". The idea is to provide information about the families that are related and not every time we have time to find out more. This article is kind of sub-article to the main articles about the Clan, check the article of "Zbigniew Scibor-Rylski", it have been lot of work to do this small article! In the future we will try to improve but in the mean time I dont think that anyone will provide more than it is now.
Is it not possible to leave it as a stub related to the main articles "Ostoja coat of arms" and "Clan of Ostoja" which both are subject of improving and that we work on?

Sincerely, Camdan (talk) 11:25, 1 July 2010 (UTC)

Tallest buildings in central america[edit]

You seem to not recognize this as a redirect that resulted from an article move due to incorrect capitalization. I have removed the db-A10 template from it. Leaving it there as a redirect causes no harm, and wastes nobody's time, while fighting for its removal does waste the time of the editors involved. Chris the speller (talk) 20:40, 1 July 2010 (UTC)

July 2010[edit]

Information.svg Thank you for your contributions. Please remember to mark your edits as "minor" only if they truly are minor edits. In accordance with Help:Minor edit, a minor edit is one that the editor believes requires no review and could never be the subject of a dispute. Minor edits consist of things such as typographical corrections, formatting changes, or rearrangement of text without modification of content. Additionally, the reversion of clear-cut vandalism and test edits may be labeled "minor". Thank you. —DoRD (talk) 17:10, 6 July 2010 (UTC)

Orphan first[edit]

Re this edit: do not even think about applying a dirty po tag until you have fixed all the links. In this case they were all these. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 18:42, 6 July 2010 (UTC)

This kind of stuff annoys me. Just leave it be; it's a legitimate typo that exists to, well, redirect people to the correct page name. Also, I've responded on my talk page about your mass tagging of a few pages, which I have recreated. I see this instance and the ones involving me were tagged because the redirects fixed dashes per WP:DASH. Redirects exist for a reason: the page has a better name, but people may search the title of the redirect. Tagging them for deletion is disruptive and ultimately counterproductive. Also, please consider categorizing instead of asking for deletion of redirect pages. Regards, Airplaneman Review? 19:58, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

Minor edits[edit]

I must again caution you to stop marking edits as "minor" which are not, in fact, minor. If you are manually marking each edit as minor, please stop. If not, please modify your preferences as I described above so that all edits are not marked as minor by default. Continuing on like this will be considered disruptive editing and may lead to being blocked. Thank you —DoRD (talk) 20:15, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

Please discuss major changes in an established article before making them. Putting in a single theory such as this into the lead is a major change. Thanks. Imc (talk) 12:14, 10 July 2010 (UTC)

btw, I have no idea what the book you reference says, since I have not had a chance to look at it. Is it about sati, or about Indian society generally? Perhaps you could summarise its arguments so we know. Imc (talk) 12:16, 10 July 2010 (UTC)
Hi, the book I've mentioned is a secondary source, this small edit in LEDE says about Sati and its purpose, and similar traditions which exists in Indian society. As I do not wanted to depend on the primary source that is Castes in India: Their Mechanism, Genesis and Development published in Indian Antiquary, Vol. XLI in May 1917, I've provided secondary sources. But I think it is my fault that I've not explained this small portion in detail in the remaining sections of this article. In brief this text is the criticism on Sati, also include names of similar evil practices meant to achive same purpose in Indian society. If you undo your revert and restore the LEDE, I would like to add the detailed description of this text in the remining article. With Regards.--Ranjithsutari (talk) 15:11, 10 July 2010 (UTC)
On reflection, this discussion should take place on the talk page for the article. As it is now on your page, would you care to move this discussion, or start a new discussion there?
On putting this into the lead, I don't see the urgency, especially given that the matter is in the general text. Please note that this article has been quite extensively discussed before, and the theory that sati originated with a desire to protect caste is only one of many theories. Another theory for instance (which I have read somewhere but cannot find references to now, or I would have included it) is that it grew as a 'social pathology' in extreme conditions, such as the condition of Bengal after the great famine of 1770. Since there are multiple theories, we need to be careful about putting any single one in the lead; it implies that it is generally accepted as the prime reason. The fact that it is not in the article till now, after several years and after detailed scrutiny by many editors, implies that it is not universally accepted. Of course, it might only demonstrate the ignorance of myself and other previous editors, but I think you need to show that the caste theory is generally accepted as the reason for the practice.

Thanks Ranjith a lot for starting Fighting against untouchability in the article about Dr. Ambedkar. It was the most important aspect of his life and up till now it was ignored out of the article. Any biographical article about Dr. Ambedkar cannot not even start without this aspect of his life.

I am very sorry that I am having very limited access to internet these days and cannot participate actively in any of your projects on Wikipedia, some of which are too close to my heart. Also, article about Bahishkrit Hitakarini Sabha is very important and it must by on this encyclopedia. If you have writing and speeches of Dr. Ambedkar, the constution of the Sabha is published in Volume 17, part 3, and it will be helpful to you if you intend to start the article. Also teh attached image from commons may be useful for illustrating in the article about the Sabha.

Hi, thank you for your appreciation. I think this aspect of Babasahebs' life is very important because it clearly shows the hypocrisy, which still exists in this society. I think presenting this aspect in Babashebs' own words is the best way to justify this article. There are many more articles specifically related to Babasahab which qualify the criteria to be on this encyclopedia, but unfortunately I do not have the access to any of the volumes of "Writings and Speeches of Dr. Ambedkar" moreover I can't afford it. I am trying to find on internet but it is available only in Telugu language that too upto 8 volumes only. If you have any links of the Vol. 15, Vol.16 and 3 parts of Vol. 17 please kindly provide me.

Page blanked by author[edit]

Hi. Though page blanking is usually vandalism and needs to be reverted, you need to look at the page history, because quite often the author has blanked his own page, as with Gabriel Poirier-Galarneau just now. In those cases the best thing is to tag it {{db-author}}. It can be confusing for an author who realises his page is inappropriate and blanks it, if his page is at once restored and he is accused of vandalism for the blanking and told it was unconstructive.

Nuvola apps important.svg You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Nankana Sahib District. Note that the three-revert rule prohibits making more than three reversions on a single page within a 24-hour period. Additionally, users who perform several reversions in content disputes may be blocked for edit warring even if they do not technically violate the three-revert rule. When in dispute with another editor you should first try to discuss controversial changes to work towards wording and content that gains a consensus among editors. Should that prove unsuccessful, you are encouraged to seek dispute resolution, and in some cases it may be appropriate to request page protection. If the edit warring continues, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. JamesBWatson (talk) 13:07, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

I did not wanted to engage in edit war, that is why I have request for administrators intervention. I have given enough warning before posting here for editing unsourced content which is probably vandalism .--Ranjithsutari (talk) 13:19, 23 August 2010 (UTC)
Vandalism has a specific meaning, and does not mean just any kind of editing which is considered unsuitable. You say the editing is "probably vandalism", but, as you will see from the instructions on the page, Wikipedia:Administrator intervention against vandalism is for obvious and persistent vandalism, which this isn't.

I think there are some words to watch, Even though Wiki is not censored, the word "female genital" is enough to explain the art/picture. if I have referred any wrong policy OR if I have made a wrong usage of the tool, OR If my PoV is wrong please share your thoughts.--Ranjithsutari (talk) 14:39, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

Telugu language[edit]

Hi. The page "Telugu language" was already protected this month to stop an edit war. It looks like that this same edit warring may occur again or it is not solved. I believe it is time to follow "Wikipedia:Dispute resolution"; request protection, mediation, use some noticeboard or any other action to avoid one more edit war. Could you give it a try? Thanks.” TeLeŞ(PT @ L C G) 01:02, 29 September 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for you suggestions, I've already considered "Wikipedia:Dispute resolution". I've given proper notice at Disruptive Editors talk page, Instead of giving proper response, this user starting abusing me. I'm trying my best to avoid edit waring.--Ranjithsutari (talk) 19:04, 29 September 2010 (UTC)
Nice to hear that. If the user refuses to talk maybe you should call for an administrative action. Let's hope this is not necessary. Have a nice day.” TeLeŞ(PT @ L C G) 19:12, 1 October 2010 (UTC)

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

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Publications_of_Babasaheb.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use. Suggestions on how to do so can be found here.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

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 'image' 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 "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Do you want to opt out of receiving this notice? Melesse (talk) 02:02, 1 August 2011 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Publications of Babasaheb.jpg[edit]


Thanks for uploading File:Publications of Babasaheb.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Skier Dude (talk) 05:20, 16 March 2012 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
