A cup of tea for you![edit]

Meissen-teacup pinkrose01.jpg Hey. Long time no interaction. How have you been? South Asia is shaping up nicely, right? Need to keep an eye on Indian subcontinent too. Left to its own, it is in the habit to degenerate into an alternative version of South Asia. Aditya(talkcontribs) 02:13, 15 November 2017 (UTC)

IndiaIsTheBest (talk) 11:02, 29 November 2017 (UTC) Why are you reverting pages even if sources are provided?[edit]

You recently undid to the prior version of "Social groups of Gujarat". Please provide more information on talk page rather than reverting edits for those articles whivh are linked to source. Thanks.

(talk page watcher)Sources are not provided in templates and going by the caste-specific-agenda-driven edits, you are making, it's high time that you stop or face the prospects of a very-imminent topic-ban.Cheers!Winged Blades Godric 11:17, 29 November 2017 (UTC)

Kashmir Conflict[edit]

RegentsPark I am quite concerned with the edit wars you have noted on Kashmir Conflict. The page was stable for a week before Kautilya3 came marching back in, despite still being active on Wikipedia during their absence from the article, and started making disruptive cuts. Kautilya3 is clearly a minority on the talkpage where I, NadirAli, Ma4d and Xinjao are making strong policy based arguments. The only users backing Kautilya3 are Capitals00 and MBlaze Lightning who are not even making substantial or policy based comments. The latter left a one liner comment and the former claimed to have been active on the talkpage for weeks despite not being. It looks like a case of WP:stonewalling to me and abuse of the consensus policy. Shouldn't the minority dissidents be reverted per WP:NOCON to the last stable version? KA$HMIR (talk) 15:11, 30 November 2017 (UTC)

Hi KA$HMIR. I'm not sure what I can do. I took a look at the article and, clearly, it is a confused mess. It is too long, the timelines are confused, and the text is not at all cohesive. What should happen is that the various editors should work together in figuring out how the various threads about the Kashmir conflict should be covered on Wikipedia. Unfortunately I don't see the two editors with the most experience (Mar4d and Kautilya3) working together on this. All I can suggest is that you get someone with both experience in article writing as well as an understanding of the conflict to mediate. Perhaps @Fowler&fowler:. I'm watching the page but can only step in if there is actual disruptive behavior and that's not yet the case. --regentspark (comment) 18:23, 30 November 2017 (UTC)
  • Well my question was that shouldn't the article be restored to the last stable version to maintain WP:STATUSQUO? NadirAli's last major edit was on 19 November. Kautilya3 next made a minor edit on the page on 25 November and had a discussion with Nadir and others after that about sourcing, which lasted until 02:15 on 27 November. When the discussion on sourcing was not going in Kautilya3's favour he turned around on 27 November at 02:29, made a new section on the talkpage and did a mass revert of the content, (thus starting the edit war that followed), claiming it as UNDUE although UNDUE was evidently not a concern for Kautilya3 before he found himself not succeeding on the ongoing discussion about sourcing on the talkpage. This looks like disruptive behaviour to me.
  • If you don't agree that will be fine. The solution to this POV imbroglio might be found in DRN or mediation. @Fowler&fowler: or another neutral editor's assistance would also be appreciated. ~~
    I can't restore the article to any version because that would mean taking a position on the content and that's not something for which I have the competence. But, looking at what's going on with the Nadir Ali edits and subsequent reverts, it seems to me that the way forward has to be in small steps. The discussion on the talk page has pretty much devolved into a this/that POV. Kautilya3 has taken the position that much of Nadir Ali's text is undue and/or not reliably sourced while you (and others) are arguing that the deleted text should be restored and then discussed. Neither approach is going to be helpful. Instead, you, Nadir Ali, etc. should propose small edits along with sources, see which ones you get consensus for, and add those. If you think that some of the current statements in the article are poorly sourced, explain why and get consensus for their removal. Do this one thing at a time otherwise the discussion becomes unwieldy (that's where we are now). --regentspark (comment) 22:04, 4 December 2017 (UTC)

ANI Experiences survey[edit]

The Wikimedia Foundation Community health initiative (led by the Safety and Support and Anti-Harassment Tools team) is conducting a survey for en.wikipedia contributors on their experience and satisfaction level with the Administrator’s Noticeboard/Incidents. This survey will be integral to gathering information about how this noticeboard works - which problems it deals with well, and which problems it struggles with.

The survey should take 10-20 minutes to answer, and your individual responses will not be made public. The survey is delivered through Google Forms. The privacy policy for the survey describes how and when Wikimedia collects, uses, and shares the information we receive from survey participants and can be found here:

Are articles "under other multiple projects (not predominantly India)" (quote) like Trans-Karakoram Tract exempt from WP:INDICSCRIPT? Some clarification on this would be nice, as per comments here. Regards, Mar4d (talk) 12:56, 9 December 2017 (UTC)


Oops we are editing at the same time. I had put the article in GAN, but later reflection made me feel that GAN's purely surface reviews would not be greatly helpful. I removed it from GAN. It's in FAC.  Lingzhi ♦ (talk) 21:49, 11 December 2017 (UTC)

Do see this.[edit]

See these videos as my proof (1) 2) 3) If such is the nature of caste discrimination in India, then why not put it on wikipedia? Infact an entire page dedicated to caste discrimination in india must be on wikipedia along with all these videos. Sahilrajput12 (talk) 08:50, 12 December 2017 (UTC) More specifically this is caste discrimination/oppression/tyranny among indian hindus Sahilrajput12 (talk) 11:52, 12 December 2017 (UTC)

(talk page watcher) The wording in these messages here (to me) show a clear point of view by this editor. I believe that the article in relation here is under discretionary sanctions, and he was just given notice on his user talk page here. Sahilrajput12, assuming that I'm correct: you might want to avoid this particular topic area completely and focus on making contributions to articles in a different topic area. I predict that if you fail to do so, your edits will not be sufficient and acceptable per Wikipedia's policies and you will have problems due to the discretionary sanctions placed on this topic area... I highly recommend that you contribute to another topic area that you don't have strong conflicts of opinion and points of view with. It'll keep you out of trouble and keep this article worded in a neutral point of view if you do... ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 12:05, 12 December 2017 (UTC)
All i know is that if i find reliable sources, then i am good to create an article named "caste discrimination in India". The sanction message on my wall has been placed by an indian editor, so i'd like some non-indian admin to see if is really warranted, or is the indian editor biased. In any case, i dont think there should be any issue if i find the sources Sahilrajput12 (talk) 12:14, 12 December 2017 (UTC)
Hi @Sahilrajput12:. Youtube videos are not reliable sources so you can't use them. If you want to create an article on Caste discrimination in India, I suggest you look for academic sources that make the case that it exists and that it is enough of a problem to have a separate article on it then write your article around those sources. Best wishes. --regentspark (comment) 14:52, 12 December 2017 (UTC)


Hi I merged the section after reviewing the Jammu page and saw that someone merged the demographics section on Muslim communities I wanted to make both equal we cannot have bias towards Mirpur and allow Indian users to merge and collapse sections while not allowing the same on the Mirpur page. (talk) 08:59, 12 December 2017 (UTC)

I wont leave this until an admin like you either readds the Muslim communities subheading on the Jammu article or you remove the Sikh and Hindu communities heading from Mirpur we cannot cater for Indian propaganda. (talk) 19:04, 12 December 2017 (UTC)
