Revert[edit]

Hi RegentsPark. Why did you revert my edit [[1]]? I gave the reasons for the edit which I consider valid.
1) The fact of Tipu's suppression of Mappilas is not contested by any historian/contemporary. It does not fulfil the criteria of controversiality.
2) It is not criticized by any historian/contemporary on moral or other grounds. It does not fulfil the criteria of criticality. Whereas there are sources given in the article which criticizes his persecution of Hindus and Christians on moral grounds.

I can add one more reason.
3) Apart from two blunt statements that "Tipu targeted Mappilas" and "he clamped down on...Mappilas" there is no discussion on it in the entire article. Hence it is not important enough to be included in the Introduction. Whereas nearly 50% of the article discusses his treatment of Hindus and Christians and hence should be included in the Introduction.— Preceding unsigned comment added by Edithgoche (talkcontribs) 17:14, 10 November 2018 (UTC)

Possibly by mistake. I was trying to go far enough back to get the right date of birth and might have removed a meaningful edit. Feel free to add it back (assuming it is reliably sourced etc.). --regentspark (comment) 19:57, 10 November 2018 (UTC)

False warning issued[edit]

Please have a close look on edits before you issue warnings like you did on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Friday to me

Original edit with original information: 12:25, 14 October 2018‎

Linkspam edit by anonymous: 13:09, 8 November 2018‎

Revert by me: 19:17, 10 November 2018‎ => you gave me a warning for this

Revert by you including the spam link again: 14:28, 10 November 2018‎ / 19:53, 10 November 2018‎

You can not find any information about the customer spend on the linkspam edit...

Seems it's not allowed to post source to where informations originate from.

I hope in the future you take a close look before you issue warnings or make reverts.

No clue what you mean by all of the above but please don't post links to commercial sites. If you want to use something as a reference, please read our reliable source policy first. Best. --regentspark (comment) 00:17, 11 November 2018 (UTC)

I added a reliable source as cited in many Swiss newspapers, tv stations and so on and also put down some sentences about Black Friday in Switzerland on Wikipedias Black Friday page on Oct 14th (unfortunately, I was not logged in at that time). That source is the most trusted source in Switzerland about Black Friday, you can try to Google it.

Someone else just deleted the reference / source and pasted a commercial link with no added value (13:09, 8 November 2018‎ ) I tried to revert that, but you chose to delete the original link (trusted source) and revert back to a commercial plattform with no added value. The plattform you reverted to (the link you've set) does not contain any valuable informations for Black Friday in Switzerland.

Please, allow me to add the trusted original source link again and do not revert to SEO-links as you did. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jueluz (talkcontribs) 00:55, 11 November 2018 (UTC)

I'm sorry but a site that blazes "All deals and information" at the top of its page does not qualify as a reliable source for anything. The other link is also not suitable and someone has, correctly, removed it. --regentspark (comment) 13:21, 11 November 2018 (UTC)

Hi @Xenon One:. I understand where you're coming from and sympathize. However, most reliable sources refer to it as Anti-Sikh riots and that's why we use that term as the title. The riots as genocide is discussed in detail in the article itself and that's where it is appropriate. If you think your sources are strong enough, you should open a discussion on the talk page of the article and get consensus from the rest of the community. Best wishes. --regentspark (comment) 01:09, 14 November 2018 (UTC)


@RegentsPark: Okay. Can you provide some instructions for that? I didn't knew that there is a talk page even for an article.


See, Pennsylvania, California, Ontario, etc. have all recognised it as a genocide and i think that should be sufficient. But you're saying I should give info from a more reliable source like some global publishers?

@Xenon One:. Try posting your sources and suggested change to genocide at Talk:Anti Sikh riots. --regentspark (comment) 18:50, 14 November 2018 (UTC)
