Image on Reform and criticism section on United Nations

Civilians are being displaced in Northern Sri Lanka during the final months of the war. A review of UN action criticized the UN leadership, UN Security Council and top UN officials in Sri Lanka.

I have re-added the above image which is removed by User:Rich Farmbrough without edit summary on the Reform and criticism section on United Nations; since the image depicts one of the worst human tragedies human kind ever faced and reviewed by the UN itself its fault and found guilty.Sudar123 (talk) 02:16, 5 January 2013 (UTC)

Your GA nomination of George E. Crothers

The article George E. Crothers you nominated as a good article has been placed on hold Symbol wait.svg. The article is close to meeting the good article criteria, but there are some minor changes or clarifications needed to be addressed. If these are fixed within 7 days, the article will pass, otherwise it will fail. See Talk:George E. Crothers for things which need to be addressed. Tomcat (7) 17:25, 17 January 2013 (UTC)

I addressed the issue (replaced a dead link with other sources; see here for the change). — Richwales (no relation to Jimbo) 18:37, 17 January 2013 (UTC)

I'm GeorgianJorjadze.

Hello Rich. I am GeorgianJorjadze. I just posted a message on Elockid's talk page and I am interested in your opinion. GJ — Preceding unsigned comment added by 46.49.102.90 (talk) 20:38, 27 January 2013 (UTC)

Ethnic conflict in Sri Lanka

There was a dispute for tags in the Ethnic conflict in Sri Lanka page. There was a discussion about tags in the talk page. Now only I am in the talk page. Also Obi2canibe didn't participate to the DRN discussion in [here]. Some IP trying to start the disputed edit again without a proper reason. I am not sure whether it is a different user or same user after logged out from the account. Who ever it is I think he is supposed to give reasons ( in talk page) to his edits. Is it possible(if possible, please) you to check whether this is same user (Obi2canibe) or protect this page from IPs ? Himesh84 17:06, 23 January 2013 (UTC)

I'll look at this when I can; however, this might not be for several hours. If you require immediate attention to this matter, please post your request at WP:ANI. If you think inappropriate sockpuppetry is involved, you should report it at WP:SPI — and please note that a sockpuppet investigation request absolutely requires evidence in the form of at least one diff for the alleged sockmaster and at least one diff for each alleged sockpuppet, or else the request will be summarily rejected. — Richwales (no relation to Jimbo) 18:11, 23 January 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for information Himesh84 03:53, 24 January 2013 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Himesh84 (talkcontribs)
I finally had a chance to look at the revision history of this article. The recent edit war regarding tagging of the article doesn't seem to have continued after the two IP edits and your reverting thereof. You seem to have done the right thing by bringing up the tagging issues on the article's talk page and asking for discussion there. If someone (whether a logged-in editor or an IP editor) reverts again without any reasonable attempt at discussion or explanation, I would recommend taking the matter to WP:ANI and asking for an uninvolved administrator to look at the situation. Do not do another revert yourself in such a situation, or else you might be seen as being a party to the edit war; leave the other person's revert intact for the moment and allow an uninvolved admin to take the next step.
I should also repeat what I believe I said some time ago — I do not believe I am in a position to do any useful content work in this topic area (no matter what I do, someone on one side or the other is going to accuse me of taking sides). So I am going to have to decline getting involved in any and all future content discussions here. Additionally, my earlier (failed) efforts to mediate in this deeply ingrained and long-standing dispute means I really cannot intervene here as an administrator, lest I be accused of breaking the WP:UNINVOLVED policy. In other words, I can't do anything at all on any aspect of the Sri Lankan conflict — and although I recognize and appreciate your feeling that I can in fact deal fairly with problems relating to this subject, I must insist on not getting involved in any way — meaning, amongst other things, that if you need help on the topic in future, I would ask you to please not ask me to intervene, but instead to bring up the matter at WP:ANI or another relevant place in order to attract the attention of other (uninvolved) admins who might be in a position to help where I cannot. — Richwales (no relation to Jimbo) 17:30, 24 January 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for your time and information. That will be really helpful. Himesh84 14:33, 29 January 2013 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Himesh84 (talkcontribs)
