Ranvir sena[edit]

Greetings, Sitush, hope you're doing okay health-wise. There seems to be a lot of caste-related stuff at Ranvir Sena, and I was wondering if you could take a look at it when you have the time/inclination. Vanamonde93 (talk) 15:53, 10 July 2016 (UTC)

Re: trouble[edit]

"Continuing to argue about it is just going to bring a ton of trouble." - just wondering what kind of trouble. Furry-friend (talk) 17:51, 13 July 2016 (UTC)

See WP:TE, for starters. Please, take NeilN's advice and mine: drop this and get back to building the encyclopaedia. - Sitush (talk) 17:57, 13 July 2016 (UTC)
I notice that other people have said the same thing on your talk page. - Sitush (talk) 18:01, 13 July 2016 (UTC)
This seems like good advice. Furry-friend (talk) 18:36, 13 July 2016 (UTC)


Speedy deletion nomination[edit]

I can assure you that the sources used are genuine (I have all the books listed as references) but I can see your point that parts of the two articles in question are similar to the website. I will rewrite in due course. ThanksRacingmanager (talk) 14:02, 19 July 2016 (UTC)

@Racingmanager: It isn't just those two. It is practically every article you have created on the subject, which is a lot. You will either have to work very hard and very fast or the things will be deleted because we cannot hang around with copyright matters. That doesn't stop you recreating a valid article at a future date, of course, but you probably will find yourself under rather more scrutiny for a while, purely in the interests of maintaining the integrity of this project. - Sitush (talk) 14:20, 19 July 2016 (UTC)
Pretty much every article in {{Greyhound_stadiums_in_Great_Britain}} has copy/pastes from the greyhoundracinghistory.co.uk website. Spot checks suggest the same applies to the articles in {{English_Greyhound_Derby}}. Where else might you have done this? It is a big clean-up job and I noticed that you've also worked on cricket articles etc, so presumably it is possible you have done something similar with those. I may have to refer this to WP:CCI. - Sitush (talk) 00:03, 20 July 2016 (UTC)

Messy articles[edit]

I came across three articles, namely Duggal, Taneja, and Dhadwal. All of three are just filled with unsourced content. Please have a look at them. - NitinMlk (talk) 14:43, 19 July 2016 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination[edit]

I actually own the greyhoundracinghistory.co.uk website (years of sourcing and work I might add) where all of the mentioned content has been sourced from. I will look into the option of using the (Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials) so that the articles that I have created are not deleted.Racingmanager (talk) 11:00, 20 July 2016 (UTC)

I doubt that would work because the various pages on the site are not footnoted etc and it will fail WP:SPS - it is just you writing. Even if it did work, you'd still have to rewrite practically every article because the tone is highly inappropriate for an encyclopaedia. You might want to clarify these issues before donating your considerable research etc. - Sitush (talk) 11:59, 20 July 2016 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination[edit]

Just to let you know that I have put a copyright notice on the website homepage.Racingmanager (talk) 18:50, 20 July 2016 (UTC)

Harvey Karp[edit]

the used picture is by karp himself, has no date, ist purely adervtisement — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mr. bobby (talkcontribs) 09:29, 22 July 2016 (UTC)

So what? He has given permission for us to use it and it is far superior to your replacement. You are ripping into that article in a manner that makes me think you might have some animosity towards the guy. Please don't let it go so far as to affect even which photograph is used. Thanks. - Sitush (talk) 09:35, 22 July 2016 (UTC)
the whole article was advertisment. the portrait picture IS advertisement. such an article has nothing to do with an encyclopedia. i do not rip encyclopedic parts, but simple advertisement. i do not know it here are other articles in WP which use such a kind of photograph. and you yourself corrected many wrong or extremely exaggerated statements by adorers of Karp (or simply himself). Mr. bobby (talk) 09:40, 22 July 2016 (UTC)
How is it an advert? It is just a photo of the guy. It doesn't even have a copy of his book in the thing. - Sitush (talk) 09:45, 22 July 2016 (UTC)
So use google. Exactly this pic is on every book and product of Karp. This photoshopped pic is used everywhere in teh net. The article is abusing the aims of an encyclopedia. All too obvious! The pic is not "more informative" but more misleading. The other pic is a realistic photograph of a speech with a date (2007). So your assertion "more informative" is wrong. Sorry. Mr. bobby (talk) 09:51, 22 July 2016 (UTC)
That it is used on his books is not a reason to delete it. Dammit, we use actual copies of book covers, music album covers etc. So, go get consensus to replace the long-extant image with your preferred version. - Sitush (talk) 09:56, 22 July 2016 (UTC)
I replaced it by a more realistic piture. You have another opinion. To me it is much more important to get these exaggerations and advertisement aspects in the text deleted. Mr. bobby (talk) 10:02, 22 July 2016 (UTC)

Native American name[edit]

That's a sock of Til Eulenspiegel, or rather both IPs are. I'm seeing if someone else will deal with it as I've dealt with it once, and someone else should OS the edit summary. You can revert as often as you like, socks can't edit. Doug Weller talk 11:27, 22 July 2016 (UTC)

You need to get that article semi'd. Pointless me continuing to revert. - Sitush (talk) 11:32, 22 July 2016 (UTC)

Dilip Kumar[edit]

  • dilip kumar sorry I'm new I assumed that the actors own entry states he is Awan in his early life section? How do I add citation? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Q3cctv (talkcontribs) 22:53, 22 July 2016 (UTC)
@Q3cctv: hi, and don't worry about making mistakes. We're all new here once. I took a look at the Dilip Kumar article but unfortunately the two citations that were there do not show him self-identifying as a member of the Awan community. We need self-identification of things like caste/tribe and religion when a person is still living because it could impact on their life. I've removed the statement from the Kumar article because of this. I made some notes about the issue at User:Sitush/Common#Castelists - they may be useful to you or maybe just very confusing given your new-ness!
When you do come across something you want to cite then just drop me a line here and I'll help you if you need it. - Sitush (talk) 23:05, 22 July 2016 (UTC)

Here is article from tribune paper — Preceding unsigned comment added by Q3cctv (talkcontribs) 23:10, 22 July 2016 (UTC)

Yes, I saw that but cannot see where it shows him self-identifying as an Awan. - Sitush (talk) 23:43, 22 July 2016 (UTC)
