New message[edit]

Why what has he done? ♦ Sir Blofeld ♦ $1,000,000? 22:17, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

Well they shouldn't have just been deleted like that without any new discussion. I have the disclosed media company which is the contractor of the images and only myself and one or two other admin know about it. The deleting admin has no idea what agreement was made and certainly shoulnd't have speedied OTRS affirmed images without new consensus ♦ Sir Blofeld ♦ $1,000,000? 22:34, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

I;ve responded on the council page. Its a legitimate agreement and a shame he still distrusts it. I promise you amigo. Got to go to bed now. See ya! ♦ Sir Blofeld ♦ $1,000,000? 23:14, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

LOL!!! 12:39, 1 February 2008 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Blofeld of SPECTRE (talkcontribs)

I just think it is a joke how much Sarvagnya seems to care about these images when he does quite frankly nothing to improve wikipedia whatsoever. For somebody who barely edits this site or Bollywood articles he is rather overtly concerned about this isn't he. Unfortunately it doesn't look good. The problem is that the media company has not responded to emails where we could make a license with them which would cover all images. I have a feeling they will be redeleted in a few hours based on this as sad as it is. You can't say I haven't tried though can you. SOon enough probably the Kollywood license will be deleted on the same grounds and we'll be left with virtually no images of Indian actors whatsoever. It will be virtually impossible to obtain "free" images for these actors, in the short term anyway. Well I hope everybody is happy with themselves at what they have done ♦ Sir Blofeld ♦ $1,000,000? 12:48, 1 February 2008 (UTC)

Well it just goes to prove that other editors on this site will find fault with anything however good or valid it seems. And I mean absolutely anything. A gift was there for the taking. I didn't see any media companies contacting wikipedia in outrage did you? And that Lagaan is an excellent article - a real epic. I haven't looked into why it failed an FA yet but it looks a lot better than those FAs we talked about previously. Time and time again I lose my faith in people on this website and their ideas of what constitutes a better encyclopedia. ♦ Sir Blofeld ♦ $1,000,000? 13:03, 1 February 2008 (UTC)

Good news anyway. Chris and Steve at flickr have authorised wikipedia to use all of their images and there are 33 countries in there with lots of sets!!! Not exactly a consolation prize is it ♦ Sir Blofeld ♦ $1,000,000? 13:16, 1 February 2008 (UTC)

Sarvagnya has done exactly what I thought he would do, he is now trying to delete the Kollywood agreement too. Do you care? ♦ Sir Blofeld ♦ $1,000,000? 21:15, 1 February 2008 (UTC) What do you mean my friends? ♦ Sir Blofeld ♦ $1,000,000? 21:29, 1 February 2008 (UTC) Well, even if there were many flickr images, somebody like Sarvagnya would claim that the flickr uploader didn't own the images anyway. He'll be trying to delete all film posters and screenshots in their entirety next. For an Indian he does not exactly do much to support his mother country on wikipedia of late does he? ♦ Sir Blofeld ♦ $1,000,000? 22:01, 1 February 2008 (UTC)

I am ashamed to think of how many hours I wasted on that , going out of my way to make the agreement in the first place, tens of emails, hours spent uploading and cropping all the images to try to help people but to what gain? Why do I bother? ♦ Sir Blofeld ♦ $1,000,000? 22:07, 1 February 2008 (UTC)

You have an email ♦ Sir Blofeld ♦ $1,000,000? 11:21, 3 February 2008 (UTC) Where I haven't got any messages in my email? ♦ Sir Blofeld ♦ $1,000,000? 14:23, 3 February 2008 (UTC) I got it thanks!! Yes you are absolutely right but few of the authorities would actually admit it. LOL. Time for creche or a bed time story lol? I've responded ♦ Sir Blofeld ♦ $1,000,000? 14:48, 3 February 2008 (UTC)

Mmm. Perhaps he only likes looking at the male Bollywood stars perhaps? ♦ Sir Blofeld ♦ $1,000,000? 15:19, 3 February 2008 (UTC)

Boy o boy or boy I get a hard time for helping wikipedia don't I. I have the incentive to start thousands of articles for development, filling in gaps ready to build full articles on and aside from one or two compliments all people do is frickin complain at me. I leave clear bold message at the top of my talk page clearly showing the intentions of them and still they harass me. See Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents#French village stubs.Can you believe this guy thought I was a beginner and gave me a welcome to wikipedia message? And then time after time I;ve got to explain that yes they are stubs, infoboxes can be added later within seconds, this is the most methodical way of doing it. They don;t think, o in a few years perhaps we could have 30,000 decent encyclopedia articles here.Ahhhh. I;ve got to say though that Rahul is the man of the moment if he can sort it. ♦ Sir Blofeld ♦ $1,000,000? 22:18, 3 February 2008 (UTC)

Its OK now the guy has seen what the plan is and he seems a nice bloke. See ya! ♦ Sir Blofeld ♦ $1,000,000? 23:00, 3 February 2008 (UTC)

LOL!! All the best amigo ♦ Sir Blofeld ♦ $1,000,000? 23:04, 3 February 2008 (UTC)

Ohhh yeah baby Nadia Bjorlin. The wonderful comination that being half swedish and half irania would bring her -luscious dark hair with beautiful azure blue eyes. Mmm ♦ King of Baldness ♦ $1,000,000? 13:53, 5 February 2008 (UTC)

See here. ♦ King of Baldness ♦ $1,000,000? 13:55, 5 February 2008 (UTC)

Ahh welcome amigo. Well we can't be here all the time can we!! Yes I seem to find the worlds hottest don't I. Next task will actually be to get out there, find these women and pull them!!!! I wish!! I just love beautiful women. LOL I;ve had the funniest of things happening today - can you believe somebody tried tagging my account page earlier for speedy deletion!!! They did it twice and when I respondedquite understandably believing they were a vandal saying "What kind of a clown put somebody's user page up for speedy deletion twice? it kicked off this aggression from an admin whose messages I kept deleting. It was as if trying to speedy my user page not only once but twice was perfectly normal and I made the greatest offence imaginable by calling him a clown!!! I was in hysterics but clearly the interfering admin wasn't. Basically I was in the middle of starting a lot of new articles and he tried to speedy one of them but got his wires crossed. I told him clearly that he is wasting his time interfering and he gave up lol! Also some beginner without an account and only about 20 edits to his name tried to afd one of my articles last night and very quickly got a withdrawal !! ♦ King of Baldness ♦ $1,000,000? 21:17, 5 February 2008 (UTC)

Wow see how perfect she looks here. Why aren't these women major Hollywood actresses when there are people like Linda Hunt and Rosie O'Donnell about in films! ♦ King of Baldness ♦ $1,000,000? 21:27, 5 February 2008 (UTC) IN case you've never heard of Linda Hunt she here. Now thats a contrast in poles in beauty isn't it. She looks like a minime of Bryan Adams with cosmetic surgery gone wrong lol ♦ King of Baldness ♦ $1,000,000? 21:29, 5 February 2008 (UTC)

Likewise where have you been? I'm afraid I'm at that stage where I've lost my enthusiasm for wikipedia which I get every now and then. I only feel like spending half on hour on here at present. Regardless of other editors sometimes I wonder why I spend so much time on here!!! At present I;m looking to join an online quiz team which provides text answers to mobile phone users. Various sites pay £12 an hour and I would be using wikipedia to research them and provide the answers if I get in. Potentially think how much can be made from mobile phones and the Internet ♦ King of Baldness ♦ $1,000,000? 20:28, 7 February 2008 (UTC)

Hi. Oh every now and then I just get bored with being studious!! I'm quite an athletic person also, I suppose its quite rare that the two go hand in hand, but I sometimes feel I am spending rather too long on here and just need to get out more!!! I went for a run from Cold Knap to Llantwit Major Beach and back again this morning about a ten mile run along the beach -hard on your feet! but it was a lovely day here and couldn't waste it. Occasionally I just need to test myself physically as I feel this is linked to how I feel mentally - I always feel better afterwards and more alert. Unfortunately the surf is pretty flat and the water a little cold at this time of year to go out and do that. I guess my need to keep very fit is partly genetic, my grandfather was the most tyrannical physical trainer imaginable and used to put the Royal Navy through their paces. He was a triathlete (before it was officially a competition), swimmer, boxer, gymnast, athlete and cyclist and would do all these crazy things like jumping into partially frozen lakes and swimming across them in the winter as he believed the colder the water the "better your circulation would be once you climatized" afterwards!!. I think he would have made a good movie action star, he had that kind of steely look. Crazy man, I'd look like a wimp compared to him and if he was alive to day he'd probably back hand me one for being physically too lazy and editing wikipedia!. ANyway its good to see that Tony the Tiger is taking the time to discuss the Zinta article. Lets hope it swiftly passes ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 22:36, 7 February 2008 (UTC) Hello friend. Nah I was getting fed up with wikipedia. It isn't good to be on here too often. I'm still not exactly feeling the way I was about it. I don't get paid, I don't like many of the editors on here, some of the articles are really bad, valid agreements get swiped, I repeatedly keep getting negative messages whether it is about something I am bothering to work on or the image police spamming my talk page. Not exactly an allure to spend my days editing on here is it? ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 15:44, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

Oh I wouldn't leave. Just occassionally it gets tiresome. I've put in some good edits today for the Hollywood A-listers with images I have altered and I added some things to Tim Burton etc. I'd love to get a latest one of Michelle Pfeiffer though. She looks so much hotter today (I just find her and Sharon Stone really sexy since those steamy thrillers of the 1990s). They may not be as physically stunning as Zinta/Bipasha or Haifa but I find them extremely attractive given that they are very intelligent too and have so many qualities. Looking forward to the new Bond film Quantam of Solace anyway, part of the film is set in Bolivia -which is in my view one of the coolest of locations for an action/spy film. Its got such a murky reputation along with COlombia for drugs and gangsters,really shady, ever since I saw Scarface (film) (also starring a young Miss Pfeiffer). Thats why I liked License to Kill and consider Franz Sanchez one of my favourite villains in any film, even though the film was only average, because of the whole Latin underworld thing. In my best Colombian accent "Amigo. There are worse things than dying." ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 16:12, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

Well I obivously think all of those actresses you mentioned are wonderful but if we're talking about all time I'd have to say Greta Garbo or Ingrid Bergman, something about those Swedish women in Hollywood partly changed the conception and previous ideas about leading women. Actresses like Katherine Hepburn were also a dream to watch but I also have a great deal of admiration for Italian actresses such as Sophia Loren, Claudia Cardinale and Gina Lollobrigida. Best actor of all time has to be Bogart easily, amazing to watch and Brando had it going too. In terms of raw screen presence and an icon though I personally regard Eastwood or Wayne as my favourites but I like all that macho stuff, pistols at dawn and that anyway. Yes I've seen Volver, as you know I'm into Latin and European art house films. Heres a coincidence. I just started an article and one of the stars is Fernando Guillén Cuervo who coincidentally is both Spanish and due to star in the Bond film I mentioned earlier. Hows that for a connection and I promise you that wasn't intentional. I was looking at Walken. I love all these connections between films ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 17:37, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

Can you find the correct link/source for Image:PreityZintakank.jpg thankyou ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 17:55, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

Yes exactly Riana said the limited images was acceptable contrary to Sarvagnya now. But you have to find the correct link. They are certainly not a criteria for speedying and go against any discussion or consensus to remove them. He will be reverted until he decides to discuss things AGAIN. Yawn yawn ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 18:01, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

I responded here but this issue is so October 2007 and I would like to move on with things OK? ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 18:40, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

Well I hoped that issue was old news and the decision that they were acceptable were made by consensus back in October-November time. I really do not wnat to go back to discussing images and POV again. The fact anyway that you had to revert a usual GA article reviewer anyway himself as being too POV illustrates profoundly that past concerns were hyped anyway and as it is -a clear top article. ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 18:49, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

New topic[edit]

Hey Shahid.. sorry for the late reply. I was really busy these last two days. As for the Star Screen Awards, the award show was pretty boring. LOL, I was expecting so much more. Apart from Shahrukh Khan and Karisma Kapoor, no other big stars were present. Although Shahid Kapoor and Katrina Kaif were there. LOL.... Unfortunately Rani and Preity weren't there either. Yash Chopra and Rekha announced the name for Star Screen Award for Best Actress and Kapoor's sister came to pick up the award on her behalf. The performances were pretty lame too.. even King Khan's one. LOL.. In my opinion, Shahid's was the best. Why the hell are all the images gone on the Bollywood images. I haven't been on Wikipedia for the last two days and so much happens. :( --Bollywood Dreamz Talk 18:45, 1 February 2008

No problem.. anytime.. I decided to take a bit of a break and clean up the List of Preity Zinta's awards and nominations. What do you think?? --Bollywood Dreamz Talk 20:16, 1 February 2008
LOL, Shahid.. you are embarassing me. I don't deserve so much praise. I don't think I am worthy of it. You are a great editor and I am really proud of that!! I admire your dedication and enthusiasm while working on Bollywood articles. Your work is truly commendable. --Bollywood Dreamz Talk 20:27, 1 February 2008
Sorry to bother you again. I know you're really busy but I need to ask you something. Since Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor separated, do we still leave their names in the other person's infobox in the domestic partner section. For example, should we leave Shahid's name in Kareena's infobox section and vice-versa or should we rm it since they broke up. What do you think? --Bollywood Dreamz Talk 20:36, 1 February 2008
Okay thanks, that's what I was thinking too. Regards --Bollywood Dreamz Talk 20:45, 1 February 2008

What is going on Shahid????? Now all the images are being removed. What the??? Even images like these: Image:Kareena Kapoor.jpg, Image:PreityZinta.jpg, Image:Zinta4.jpg and etc.., which are listed as files under Wikimedia Commons, are being deleted... This cannot be happening!!! All of Blofeld's hard work of getting the licence is being wasted and ruined, and now all the Bollywood pages look so empty. >_< --Bollywood Dreamz Talk 03:30, 2 February 2008

Hey, I know you're disappointed and so is Blofeld but could you get back to me. I want to tell you something but not here. Do you have an e-mail which I contact you with? I would greatly appreciate it. Regards --Bollywood Dreamz Talk 17:42, 2 February 2008
Kya haal hai dost?? Main jaanta hoon kain tum bahut busy ho lekin kya tumne 53rd Filmfare Nominations dekhe? Mujhe bahut khushi hai ke Darsheel Safary nominate hua.. leken woh nahi jeetey gha.. Tumme kya laghta hai?? Nominations dekhne ke baat Best Actor/Actress.. etc.. kaun trophy ko le jayega? --Bollywood Dreamz Talk 17:00, 7 February 2008
Hey don't worry friend. My hindi is pretty terrible too!! It feels good that I can be back on Wikipedia without worrying about University. I have the whole next week off so I will be coming on more often. Ha Ha. Can't wait until Feb 24, that is when the Filmfare Awards are being telecasted. I would be really shoced if Darsheel wins the Best Actor award but I don't think he is going too. It would be funny to see Shahrukh's face when Darsheel wins it. This is what I think will be the results of the main awards:
Best Film - TZP or CDI
Best Film (Critics) - TZP
Best Actor - Shahrukh for CDI
Best Actor (Critics) - Abhishek Bachchan for Guru or Darsheel Safary for TZP
Best Actress - Kareena Kapoor
Best Actress (Critics) - Aishwarya Rai for Guru
Best Actor in a Supporting Role - Aamir Khan for TZP
Best Actress in a Supporting Role - Tisca Chopra for TZP
--Bollywood Dreamz Talk 17:34, 7 February 2008
What impresses me the most is the number of talented child actors India is producing. Darsheel Safary, Ayesha Kapoor & Shweta Prasad, who are just a few, will go very far if they continue to Bollywood. Child actors are giving professional actors a run for their money. LOL. I am glad that Bollywood is evolving. --Bollywood Dreamz Talk 17:50, 7 February 2008
What saddens me is that women in Bollywood are just used as props. For example, many people say that Rani, Preity & Aish are all in their 30s so audiences are not eager to see them anymore. Read this article. People say that once you get married or reach that certain age, you don't get that good roles anymore. That's why most of them don't tend to come back once they get married. That is why Rani, after ruling 2004 & 2005, is losing her sheen as an actress because people don't want to see her again and again. Her roles are getting repetitious (all crying and crying; OMG. LOL) Preity Zinta will definitely bounce back. She is a talented actress who is here to stay. Her forthcoming films will show her talent and her ability to act in non-commercial films. --Bollywood Dreamz Talk 18:23, 7 February 2008
Those quotes are hilarious expecially the Amisha Patel one. "While the Kareenas, Mallikas, Bipashas and Laras are on one side. Aishwarya, Rani, Preity and myself are on another." - Yes Amisha, you keep believing that.. I couldn't stop laughing when I read that. The Kareena ones from MPKDH were hilarious as well. LOL.... --Bollywood Dreamz Talk 19:43, 7 February 2008

I needed to ask you something. Since the image Image:Kareena Kapoor.jpg is not being deleted, can we use this on Kapoor's page. I just wanted go over this with you before I added the image back on her page. BTW, the image on Priyanka Chopra's image, Image:PriyankaChopra.jpg, which is also from the Bollywood Blog site is still there as well. Both of these images are listed as Wikimedia Commons' images. Anil Kapoor's & Bipasha Basu's images need to be deleted as well but they are not listed as Wikimedia Commons' images!! --Bollywood Dreamz Talk 04:03, 9 February 2008

Hey, thanks for the wishes buddy! I really appreciate it!! LOL. If you have time, take a look at this news after. IndiaFM made a mistake for Kambakth Ishq. Regards --Bollywood Dreamz Talk 19:45, 16 February 2008

Amitabh Bachchan[edit]

Hello Shshshsh. How are you? Is it true that Mr. Bachchan has a double M.A. (Master of Arts) degree? I know that he holds a BSc in physics, chemistry and mathematics. I also feel that the section '1969 to 1983' should be expanded. I also think that the biography of Mr. Bachchan deserves a FA status. I would also like to contribute to his biography. Regards, Masterpiece2000 (talk) 09:01, 2 February 2008 (UTC)

Yes, I agree with you. He deserves a FA status article. Right now, he is the greatest actor in the World (not just India). Masterpiece2000 (talk) 14:27, 2 February 2008 (UTC)


Hey there!

Sorry for the late reply, I've got exams on Monday and studies keeping me busy.

Your words are kind :) But I think the Ashok Banker fiasco is a signal to put WP lower down on my priority list. You're doing great on the Bollywood pages! Electronics is doing brilliant too! The one article I feel really helps, is now almost complete to the best I could manage.

I'm still dropping in every now and then, hoping Banker realizes he's blaming me for IP edits. I was snappy when I'd replied to his friend, but that was yet another IP blaming me for vandalizing the page, when actually I was trying to clean up.

Sounds familiar, eh? ;)

All in all, I haven't gone but I'm not here either. I wander around, help a little bit here and there, welcome a few new-comers, write an article on something I know, then get back to real life. I'm not that involved with AfD's, admin issues or community discussions, as before. I've become an editor who tries to help with the content and let others deal with the other problems :)

Saw some of your most recent work. Man, you've been busy! Great stuff, keep it up!

Happy editing, and take care,-xC- 23:45, 4 February 2008 (UTC)

Preity Zinta GA on hold[edit]

You will have noticed that a lot of Blofeld's images have recently been marked as unfree and deleted, including, unfortunately, a lot in the above article. Also, the GA reviewer recently placed the article on hold for seven days. He left this comment on my user talk page as well.

I've reviewed the article and left notes on the talk page. I've put the nomination on hold for seven days to allow the issues to be addressed. Feel free to contact me on my talk page, here, or on the article talk page with any concerns, and let me know one of those places when the issues have been addressed. If I may suggest that you strike out, check mark, or otherwise mark the items I've detailed, that will make it possible for me to see what's been addressed, and you can keep track of what's been done and what still needs to be worked on.--TonyTheTiger (t/c/bio/WP:CHICAGO/WP:LOTD) 18:38, 6 February 2008 (UTC)

I could try to address some of the concerns he mentioned myself, the links and like where he specifically indicated what he wanted changed, but you know most about the subject, so I think your judgement is the one that should be counted on. John Carter (talk) 18:55, 6 February 2008 (UTC)

With respect to the conversion, if you can't find euros even just a dollar conversion would be great in millions.
Read WP:LEAD and tell me if you think your lead is sort of a mini version of the article without the change I suggest. The reader should know everything to expect from the article by the end of the lead. If she is well known for her bubbly nature she may not need to be on Colbie Caillat's video, but you should mention whatever she is known for in the lead. that is all I suggest. If she is not a sex symbol like Rai then she is not. I am not a Bollywood expert. She seems to be know for her dimple and her bubbly nature. Read the link I suggest herewith and reconsider. Of course, you have to guard against the prior WP:GAR in your inclusion of such, but I just pointed you to 13 NY Times articles. If even five of them are any good for your article you will be moving way up the WP:RS scale. Give it your best shot and I will take a look. I am going to log off in a few moments most likely until tomorrow.--TonyTheTiger (t/c/bio/WP:CHICAGO/WP:LOTD) 23:25, 6 February 2008 (UTC)
If you are speaking for Ms. Zinta please call me Tiger!-) Otherwise call me Tony. Variety is a Western publication. On a reliability scale it is far below the New York Times for the general reader although on the topic of celebrity it is very relevant. Culture review (books, movies, etc.) from the NYT carry much weight.--TonyTheTiger (t/c/bio/WP:CHICAGO/WP:LOTD) 18:00, 7 February 2008 (UTC)
You wouldn't really have to spend time discussing her perfect set of friends if you could just add some pictures like those to her article.--TonyTheTiger (t/c/bio/WP:CHICAGO/WP:LOTD) 18:42, 7 February 2008 (UTC)
Probably something has been lost in slang translation. Essentially, I am saying a picture is worth a thousand words and pictures of her say a lot.--TonyTheTiger (t/c/bio/WP:CHICAGO/WP:LOTD) 18:48, 7 February 2008 (UTC)

Hi just saw your concerns on Johns page. I would personally avoid the generalisation that it was "internationally successful" as this implies that it is most countries. I would be inclined to be more specific and mention the countries that the film was most successful in, unless i am wrong and it was successful in countries of Africa, Latin America and South East Asia? Probably it was successful in North America and the states and Australia etc and perhaps many European countries some obscure like Finland and in Morocco, North Africa but I doubt it was in many others. ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 22:22, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

Why add it to the lead at all then? If you said. "The film was a considerable success in North America, Europe and Australia, grossing ??? in total internationally and screened at the Helsinki Festival and Marrakesh Festival". Theres nothing wrong with that. Its better than misleading people that the film was popular everywhere. ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 12:07, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

No but we're talking about whole continents where it wasn't popular or a success and I feel it is misleading. What is the problem with what I suggested? I'd rather be more specific and know exactly where it received the most success ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 15:40, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

Only a suggestion anyway. Hey I read Amitabh's article earlier and it really isn't all that bad. If any Indian cinema article should be an FA it is his but something tells me it would require months and months of editing to promote it. It is informative which is good but these days editors such as Sarvagnya don't look at what is important do they!! If there are enough RS's available I'd like to have a go at improving it when I have some time. Regards ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 15:46, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

I think this is already addressed in the introduction very well and you are worrying too much about it. Its very good!! ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 15:49, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

Yes its a difficult one isn't it to word it without it appearing over generalized. I would add one the end of the last sentence , "and received significant critical acclaim" . ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 16:22, 11 February 2008 (UTC) Fine ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 16:30, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

Cool I;ve fixed the Mexican map so infoboxes can be added to places like Álamos. Can you believe that at present no places in Mexico have one!!! They are a shambles! Eventually every place in Mexico will have an infobox and map like elsewhere. Do you see now why I was raving about it when I made them! as they will affect thousands of articles across the world on here eventually ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 17:24, 11 February 2008 (UTC).

Well its the fact that so much needs doing everytime I log in!!, so that after some time on here you end up staying! If I don't edit then I feel that I am wasting time when things could be getting done. I added a truckload of films with red links to Bollywood films of 1981 earlier too. The later the year the more films there seems to be!! ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 18:14, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

I am not sure what your question is but I stated your options on the talk page.--TonyTheTiger (t/c/bio/WP:CHICAGO/WP:LOTD) 20:53, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

I am not sure that there is a stated ruling on such an unusual point of order. I do not see anything at Wikipedia:Footnotes#Style_recommendations. I am strongly against it and would reject a GA for it. I don't think there would be many supporters of stacked refs, but I may be wrong.--TonyTheTiger (t/c/bio/WP:CHICAGO/WP:LOTD) 21:23, 13 February 2008 (UTC)
The question is moot. I would fail it without a few highly respected western refs.--TonyTheTiger (t/c/bio/WP:CHICAGO/WP:LOTD) 21:53, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

Aas Paas[edit]

Hi pal. I've just started Aas Paas which judgin by its leading actors, director and music looks like a classic. Could you be so kind as to add a nice plot. Perhaps you;ve seen it? Thanks ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 18:33, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

Well I've made up for it today being off! Yesterday I created a side plate for Bahrainian history and started 1717 Omani invasion of Bahrain. Now it has been expanded!! ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 22:36, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

Have a listen to this. Its one of my favourites. A super power ballad!! PLus Steve Vai is playing guitar too ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 17:15, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

It is a pity that the article wasn't reviewed from a neutral viewpoint but apologies my patience wears very thin when editors like Sarvagnya and KNM are around even if he supports the objection here. Images were brought up because in the review one of the criticisms was that "there isn't a main image which would be useful" ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 19:31, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

Thats good. Even KNM has admitted that much of the previous concerns about references has been sorted and that the article is a worthy GA which is a good thing but whether it passes is another. Probably even Sarvagnya thinks it has improved. Asking to have most of the references from the NY Times is inappropriate when Times of India, IndiaFM etc are major sources in the Indian world and therefore should be seen as acceptable by a world encyclopedia not an "American encyclopedia". I have to disagree with the view that it should be written to conform with American standards. Wikipedia is global and even if 90% of editors are in "the west" it should still be written from a neutral viewpoint. I can't emphasise that enough. I'm feeling OK, I just get pretty fed up with the images issue being brought up again and again. ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 19:55, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

No your're missing what I said. You have included those reviews for the films which are international successful which is good, but you said you didn't care for any reviews from the west or east at all which is what I didn't like, and thought you wanted to remove them. For the international films one or two reviews from outside of India i think is good but only two or three maximum, I thought you were disagreeing with this and wanted to remove any non Indian reviews whatsoever. I also agreed that the vast majority of the sources in the articles should be from India as long as they are reputable. Whats the problem? ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 18:36, 14 February 2008 (UTC) I think your're misinterpreting what I am saying and vice versa ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 18:41, 14 February 2008 (UTC)

I see you were talking about readers rather than reviews of which I absolutely agree with you and think it is extremely important to not write the article specifically for somebody in the west or east. Wikipedia is global and this view that it should be written for an American is not valid. I thought you saying that no reviews outside of India were valid too. ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 18:50, 14 February 2008 (UTC) Aaah lol I see. Sorry off hand I thought you were disregarding any non Indian reviews whatsovever but clearly not (I was equally surprised). Sorry -all I saw was "Why should I care for westerns and easterners" and you can see how I got the wrong impression! We completely agree with each other then. LOL. Sorry to chip in its just I'm having a lazy day today and aren't preoccupied with articles at present! Best regards! ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 19:00, 14 February 2008 (UTC)

Hi pal. Did I tell you that Jonathan Ross, probably Britian's most prominent film critic, who presents all the BAFTAS and countless other film/TV awards said in an interview with Shilpa Shetty that Preity Zinta was his favourite Indian actress. He said that he has a soft spot for her. JR is interviewing Sly Stallone tonight. Should be great fun. I love Friday Night with Jonathan Ross, the guests are always brilliant. I remember Shania was on there with Radiohead and she was scared stiff!!! ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 14:30, 15 February 2008 (UTC)

When he was interviewing Shilpa, he was saying how he is much more up on Indian cinema than most people in the west where most people ignorantly have never heard of Zinta or Amitabh. Most people here have only heard of Shilpa and Aishwarya Rai who is often cited as the "worlds most beuatiful woman" here. Most people wouldn't evne know her name though although they.d recognize her face. Ross is always one to take the mick a bit, he was laughing about Shilpas film with the segments and the scene where she is scared of apples but he did comment on how much different modern Bollywood is to that of decades past ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 15:07, 15 February 2008 (UTC) Theres an article here on Ross and Bollywood. This is very good because he reviews many films every week including foriegn films and presents Film 2007 etc etc every week since 1999. He is probably the most knowledgeable film critic I've ever heard of and presents the BAFTA'S etc, and the fact he is very impressed by many Bollywood films shows good taste doesn't it. If only the rest of the country would listen! ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 15:18, 15 February 2008 (UTC)

Are you reading my messages?

Rekhasim ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 13:25, 16 February 2008 (UTC)

Of course it is Hebrew. Actually when I first saw it I thought it was vandalism and read as "Rekhaism", I'd expected to see some fan of her saying Rekhaism refers to the belief that Rekha is divine and all that and to see a speedy delete tag on it lol! You don't remember Hebrew though. Weren't you born in Israel though? ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 13:35, 16 February 2008 (UTC)

Aaaah baby Shahid. I love the Hebrew language. It looks so beautiful. I'm not surprised your parents didn't learn it either it looks very difficult to understand - everything backwards! I don't know what it is but why do so many foreign language look like the letters are all the same. I never understand chinese languages either, it just looks like a bunch of squares and you think, how can this possibly give details!! What city were you born in? Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Haifa, Bethlehem? ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 13:40, 16 February 2008 (UTC)

Cool. Yes I like certain types of middle eastern music in general. I remember when i was in Turkey and there were these arabian belly dancers and musicians -well you know me I love all things exotic! That was back in 1995. I was about 12 and was quite enjoying watching those sexy women dance!! Not a fan of Eurovision I must admit its an LGBT convention really isn't it, its pretty bad - Her Tranship Dana International of course!! although I know they have had normal singers who are actually very good. Just look at how beautiful the Lebanese singer Haifa is. I;m sure there are other singers like her in Israel. I'd love to visit Israel some day, my God Mother has visited several times and always says how lovely it is. ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 13:59, 16 February 2008 (UTC)

Don't know if you have heard of Yasmin Levy but I think she has a beautiful voice, Check out this ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 14:07, 16 February 2008 (UTC) There is so much in world music left to discover. I barely know nothing from other cultures. It is the same with films in the UK. At least in the UK with food people are a little more adventurous! I also like Clannad. Beautiful celtic music. Have a look at this. Bit depressing -would make good funeral music but beautiful all the same ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 14:28, 16 February 2008 (UTC)

Are you still here friend? Have a listen to this and tell me if you think it is beautiful Hawaiian music ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 15:30, 16 February 2008 (UTC)

I;ve just found a BBC source where it mentions my cousin who is a Queen's Counsel. Paul Goulding. He has 4,500 google hits too. I had hoped to pursue the same career -I was thinking of the £100,000 a year + salary but I found it too boring -too much paper work. Paul earns around £250,000 a year probably around AUS$1 million. He has several houses across the world and a yacht and stuff but he hasn;t really got time to enjoy it. Now I still don't know what to do but its better to do something you enjoy rather than being stinking rich and miserable don't you think, well it would be nice to be rich and happy!! Careers are such a pain. Are you still speaking to me as you haven't replied to the last few messages I sent you?. I thought perhaps I;ve done something to offend you. I thought you might have enjoyed those clips I posted to you. ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 12:45, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

Ah yes he's my cousin. You'd think he be willing to donate some of his money to me wouldn't you lol!! I bet its really hot where you are at present -I'd be out in the sun if I didn't have to work!! I think its great that you still take it under your wing to be the "guardian angel" for these main Bollywood articles. They face a lot of crap don't they!! Happy days!! ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 12:56, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

You;ve got to listen to this. Please tell me what you think of it, I hope you feel the same way about it. As for me I'm in the house alone for this week - my sister of course is living in California and my parents jetted off to Bermuda this morning!! ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 13:00, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

Gorgeous isn't it. So peaceful and calm. There's something about the native Hawaiians that is very precious. They move me spiritually ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 13:19, 17 February 2008 (UTC)


Hi! I am very irregular still. Saw much is going on in Zinta article. That's great.--Dwaipayan (talk) 15:44, 8 February 2008 (UTC)


I might put a bit more importance on the success of the film by introducing a separate clause: "Zinta received her first Filmfare Best Actress Award for her performance in the internationally successful drama Kal Ho Naa Ho in 2003, which also became India's top-grossing film in the overseas market that year." John Carter (talk) 19:19, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

The word "surfaced" strikes me as a bit odd. Maybe "became" would work better. Otherwise, no objections that I can see. John Carter (talk) 16:46, 11 February 2008 (UTC)
I have some reservations about the request for Western sources as well, although I'm not sure what if anything I as an individual can do. It would be possible for you to list it at Wikipedia:Good article reassessment, citing reason 4 under "If you believe an article should be listed" as being your basis for requesting reassessment. The matter of the multiple references in footnotes should probably be resolved first, though, as that objection is probably less likely to be questioned. John Carter (talk) 17:30, 13 February 2008 (UTC)
I agree. But I do think that addressing the multiple references in the footnotes should be resolved before sending it out for reassessment as per the above, maybe by just breaking them up into a single citation per footnote. Then you can say that the apparent sole reason for the GA status being withheld is the lack of a western source, and ask there whether that is reason enough to withhold GA status. My guess is the lack of a western comment isn't sufficient, and it would be a useful point to establish one way or another in the future for similar articles about non-Western media performers. John Carter (talk) 18:04, 13 February 2008 (UTC)
No, multiple references aren't prohibited, as per that cited example. If you think that footnote isn't a reasonable basis for concern, and I have to admit I'm not really sure one footnote is grounds enough, then wait for Tony the Tiger's explanation, if he hasn't given it already, and consider asking for reassessment later if you find the explanation unacceptable.

Stop threatening me[edit]

First you said references are not valid. And we took it as a fair criticism and corrected the references. And now u say we cannot write on that page what historians are saying because somehow you have the final word? Who are you to decide that? Wikipedia is for everyone to edit so long people have references to support what tehy are writing. So please do not be uncivil and threatening. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:04, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

Dear friend! I have no problem with references. Jodha Bai is the problem here. It is irrelevant to the Jodhaa Akbar page. It is an article about a film, not the history of the name. You are adding a full coverage of the name and its history to the lead. You can provide thousand reliable refs for your additions, but if the claims are not relevant to the film and the film article, it has nothing to do with this article. Also, there are several unreferenced claims in the body, and one review from moviewalah, which is unreliable, and you keep adding it. Please do not revert. I'm nobody to decide on such things, but here the issue is more than clear. Thanks, ShahidTalk2me 16:52, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

Mmm doesn't look like vandalism, but I don't think it is suitable for the intro to the article. There is certainly too much on the names which look out of context. I would suggest moving it to a Historical background or something and include some comments by historians. I would suggest to keep only what is important, a detailed account clearly isn't suitable but as the film has Akbar as one of the characters and looks like a historical biographical film then something about it might be useful. If anything though it should address any historical inaccuracies in the script rather than etymology of names etc. ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 18:29, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

I'm out of my depth dealing with socks, although I note that there are at least two other threads on that person's talk page dealing with the subject. Probably the best way to handle it would be to file a report at Wikipedia:Suspected sock puppets. Sorry for the delay, by the way. John Carter (talk) 18:37, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

It's indeed him, per my useof WP:CHECK. I've blocked him for a while. Blnguyen (bananabucket) 01:09, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

No as that's detracting from what the article is about. If there are any historical comments such as inaccuracies in the script this would be good but not too much about a name which isn't even the title of the film. If he is a sock puppet though and is using multiple accounts to damage articles, you should report him as John suggested above. ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 18:40, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

You saw that did you? Yeah I took that as a compliment although one of Sarvagnya's friends turned up and tried to make me feel crap. Never mind I had two barnstars in one day so not all bad. I know what I'm doing and how to build content in the most efficient way possible, but there are still people who don't know who I am. Sarvagnya's crony mocked the arbitration committee for supporting my work. How they've never seen my name in the recent changes beats me! I'm just in the middle of finding images for all the Peruvian writers. Some of them such as Clorinda Matto de Turner aren't quite as hot as Jinx unfortunately. I managed to obtain around 14 images of all the Karmapas last night. Tibetan art and depictions are so beautiful.
