Maharishi University of Management[edit]

Hey there, i noticed you have helped out on the article, well I tried expanding it but I needed some help finding some things. Do you happen to know if they have a school logo or an nice picture of their campus we can put up? (:O) -Nima Baghaei (talk) 00:37, 2 March 2007 (UTC)

No, sorry I can't help with that. Roseapple 03:27, 2 March 2007 (UTC)

T|M Article mantras[edit]

Hi Roseapple admit firstly that I should have discussed these changes with other editors first perhaps but I have to say that the list of mantras given and the methods by which they are assigned seems important in the context of a description of TM. This is especially so if the religion in question claims that these are actually individual to each person and not repeated .

What do you think? Crowleys Aunt 01:52, 29 August 2007 (UTC)

I don't at all consider TM a religion.

Regarding mantras, I think noting the controversy is okay, but listing possible mantras is way too much detail. It is also probably citing obsolete info, because the only TM teachers who can give mantras now are those who have recently completed a TM-teacher re-certification, and older TM teachers who dispute the practice do not have current information.Roseapple 02:26, 29 August 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Msaelogo.gif)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Msaelogo.gif. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media 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 media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. 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 all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 08:52, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

Hi, Roseapple. It looks like a bot has replaced the gif image with a png image, leaving the gif orphaned. Since the png is in place and no bot or nobody is threatening to delete, seems like we can let the gif be deleted. TimidGuy (talk) 10:31, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

Availablity for Mediation on TM article[edit]

I will be applying for formal mediation shortly. Please let me know within the next two days if you will be available for mediation or not. This does not mean you accept the mediation, but just that I can include your name as party to the mediation. Thanks. (olive (talk) 14:37, 26 March 2009 (UTC))

An Arbitration case involving you has been opened, and is located here.

On behalf of the Arbitration Committee, Dougweller (talk) 11:22, 18 February 2010 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Case/Transcendental Meditation movement[edit]

This arbitration case has been closed and the final decision is available at the link above. The following is a summary of the remedies enacted:

  • All editors who are party to this case are instructed to read the principles, to review their own past conduct in the light of them, and if necessary to modify their future conduct to ensure full compliance with them.
  • Editors are reminded that when editing in controversial subject areas it is all the more important to comply with Wikipedia policies. In addition, editors who find it difficult to edit a particular article or topic from a neutral point of view and to adhere to other Wikipedia policies are counselled that they may sometimes need or wish to step away temporarily from that article or subject area, and to find other related but less controversial topics in which to edit.
  • Any uninvolved administrator may, in his or her own discretion, impose sanctions on any editor editing Transcendental meditation or other articles concerning Transcendental meditation and related biographies of living people, broadly defined, if, after a warning, that editor repeatedly or seriously violates the behavioural standards or editorial processes of Wikipedia in connection with these articles.
  • Uninvolved administrators are invited to monitor the articles in the area of conflict to enforce compliance by editors with, in particular, the principles outlined in this case. Enforcing administrators are instructed to focus on fresh and clear-cut matters arising after the closure of this case rather than on revisiting historical allegations.
  • From time to time, the conduct of editors within the topic may be re-appraised by any member of the Arbitration Committee and, by motion of the Arbitration Committee, further remedies may be summarily applied to specific editors who have failed to conduct themselves in an appropriate manner.
  • User:Fladrif is (i) strongly admonished for incivility, personal attacks, and assumptions of bad faith; and (ii) subject to an editing restriction for one year. Should he make any edits which are judged by an administrator to be uncivil, personal attacks, or assumptions of bad faith, he may be briefly blocked, up to a week in the event of repeated violations. After three blocks, the maximum block shall increase to one month.
  • Should any user subject to a restriction or topic ban in this case violate that restriction or ban, that user may be blocked, initially for up to one month, and then with blocks increasing in duration to a maximum of one year, with the topic ban clock restarting at the end of the block.

Maharishi School of the Age of Enlightenment[edit]

You added a lot of information to the Maharishi School of the Age of Enlightenment article. But you didn't indicate where you found the info. If you're connected to the school in any way, then you should follow the guidelines at WP:COI which allows conflicted editors to post to the talk page. Either way, can you tell us where we can verify the information? I'm particularly interested in the enrollment and faculty size.   Will Beback  talk  04:16, 18 September 2010 (UTC)
