Welcome to Wikipedia[edit]

Hi Sou Boyy, and welcome to Wikipedia. The Wikimedia Foundation already has initiated some major outreach programs, specifically aimed at Indians. I haven't been involved with them, so others will be in a better position to tell you more about them.

However, I do see that you have some concerns about tagging. Tags are very much a part of the Wikipedia culture, and while imperfect, serve a useful function. For example, the Talkback tags are a polite way of letting you know that a discussion involving you is taking place. We are in the middle of rolling out new ways to do this a little better, but until the kinks are worked out, these types of tags are for your benefit.--SPhilbrick(Talk) 21:25, 25 August 2013 (UTC)

Managing communication here[edit]

Hello there, I have 2 suggestions. First, go to your preferences (link at the top og your page) then hit the 'notifications' tab at the right. Remove the checks on email notification and you will stop receiving email notices when others edit pages that you have also edited. This will stop the flow of emails. Second, stop editing, now, and go to bed. I've asked NeilN to stop posting on your page (and I ask you to stop posting to his.) Get some sleep and come back to this in the morning. Nothing is going to happen to you, you cannot be hacked via Wikipedia and if it makes you feel safer then remove your personal details from your user page, as many people do. Come back tomorrow and have a look at some of the photos you wanted to upload; remove the watermarks and try uploading again, ask here if you have problems and I'll try to help. But for now, get to sleep! Kim Dent-Brown (Talk) 21:58, 25 August 2013 (UTC)

Alesia Raut[edit]

Hello there, I'm glad things seem to have calmed down a bit and it's nice to see that you are still contributing. Thanks for adding the pictures you have been doing - the titles of the files are a bit long and unwieldy, if you could upload them with shorter titles that would be great! (You still get credit for the pictures as anyone clicking through to the image file will see that it was you who uploaded them.)

I've done a bit of tidying up on the Alesia Raut article because when I looked at it, there were some problems. Not with what you had done, the problems were there before you added the photo! But I thought I'd tell you so you know what to look for in the future. There was some stuff about her failed marriage which made some allegations about her (ex?)-husband which I had to remove. The problem is we have a policy on living people which means that serious allegations about them have to be well referenced and these weren't. I also removed some language which sounded a bit promotional such as "Since that day it was no looking back and she kept on mounting the rungs of glamor and fashion with panache unparalleled". We try and have a more neutral, encyclopaedic tone on Wikipedia.

But as I said, these were not your problems - but I thought I should explain why I made the edits I did. Good luck with your editing, if you need any help please just post here or on my own talk page. Best wishes, Kim Dent-Brown (Talk) 08:42, 28 August 2013 (UTC)

we could always get a filemover to rename them.... -- Aunva6talk - contribs 13:53, 28 August 2013 (UTC)


Hello Sou Boyy, thanks for your continued work on Wikipedia. I just wanted to let you know about something which folks have mentioned to you before, but may have slipped your mind. There is a policy on Wikipedia about using watermarks in images - please have a look at that blue link. The policy is that: "Free images should not be watermarked, distorted, have any credits in the image itself or anything else that would hamper their free use..." I see that you recently added this photo to which you have added a watermark with your name on. Please will you remove the watermark from the original and re-upload so that we have a clean image in the article? Also, you need to think again about the titles of your images. "SouBoyy meets Nusrat Jahan..." is not an appropriate title for this image. It's a photo of her, not a photo of you meeting her. The name of the photographer is rarely of sufficient significance to form part of the title of an image. People on Wikipedia take this seriously because some folks try to use Wikipedia as a showcase for their talents and using watermarks and filenames in this way is often regarded with suspicion. Please remove any suspicion by removing the watermarks and by using simpler, more straightforward titles for your images. Kim Dent-Brown (Talk) 13:52, 21 October 2013 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Pride 2014[edit]

Hi Sou. In case you are not aware, there is an upcoming campaign to improve coverage of LGBT-related topics on Wikipedia, culminating with an international edit-a-thon on June 21. See Wiki Loves Pride 2014 for more information. If you are interested, you might consider creating a page for a major city (or cities!) near you, with a list of LGBT-related articles that need to be created or improved. This would be a tremendous help to Wikipedia and coverage of LGBT culture and history. Thanks for your consideration, and please let me know if you have any questions! --Another Believer (Talk) 18:28, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Pride 2016[edit]

As a participant of WikiProject LGBT studies, you are invited to participate in the third annual Wiki Loves Pride campaign, which runs through the month of June. The purpose of the campaign is to create and improve content related to LGBT culture and history. How can you help?

  1. Create or improve LGBT-related Wikipedia pages and showcase the results of your work here
  2. Document local LGBT culture and history by taking pictures at pride events and uploading your images to Wikimedia Commons
  3. Contribute to an LGBT-related task force at another Wikimedia project (Wikidata, Wikimedia Commons, Wikivoyage, etc.)

Looking for topics? The Tasks page, which you are welcome to update, offers some ideas and wanted articles.

This campaign is supported by the Wikimedia LGBT+ User Group, an officially recognized affiliate of the Wikimedia Foundation. The group's mission is to develop LGBT-related content across all Wikimedia projects, in all languages. Visit the affiliate's page at Meta-Wiki for more information, or follow Wikimedia LGBT+ on Facebook. Remember, Wiki Loves Pride is about creating and improving LGBT-related content at Wikimedia projects, and content should have a neutral point of view. One does not need to identify as LGBT or any other gender or sexual minority to participate. This campaign is about adding accurate, reliable information to Wikipedia, plain and simple, and all are welcome! If you have any questions, please leave a message on the campaign's talk page.

Thanks, and happy editing! ---Another Believer (Talk) 19:40, 30 May 2016 (UTC)
