Hello and Edit Wars[edit]

Hi SpacemanSpiff, if you follow the discussion I was responding to the edit war imposed by the user Sangitha rani111. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Sangitha_rani111#Vanniyar He didn't follow the discussion and clearly indulged in quick reverts before following the discussion on talk page. Requesting you to please remove the warning. Thanks Merkcid (talk) 19:07, 24 June 2015 (UTC)

The behavior under scrutiny right now is yours as it has been going on for a while, with multiple editors reverting you. THe warning stands. Any more such reverts without a meaningful discussion on the talk page, you are in for a topic ban per the social groups sanctions. —SpacemanSpiff 19:11, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
I was only responding because of the edit wars in the first place, if you see the pattern of the edits on the history page. And the reason quoted by Sangitha rani "No copy right issue. Admin has made these changes. Please discuss in talk page" , clearly proves he hasn't even gone through why the edit was reverted, which means the reason why he performed the edited was wrong in the first place. It more has to do with Sangitha rani getting his view across rather than the other way around. Merkcid (talk) 19:22, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
As someone who follows the netiquette of wikipedia and seeing it in the highest order of the source of information on the net, I humbly request you to revert my warning. As such, I leave it to your best decision. Good Day sir. ^^ Merkcid (talk) 19:49, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
You both have been editing tendentiously, you've made a statement about why what you were doing should result in an edit war, yet, you've been doing it! The social groups sanctions warning stays for both of you, it is applicable for everyone who edit wars (among other issues) on the pages of social groups. If you do not repeat this behavior, then of course, you have nothing to worry about. That said, you are of course free to remove any warnings from your own talk page. with certain exceptions including block/unblock notices etc. —SpacemanSpiff 19:52, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
I never thought the said person would re-edit after seeing the reason of the revert. They couldn't even go through the talk page and get to the discussion. How can they respond to a talk page discussion when they clearly are avoiding it? All that user cares about is reverting. I have good reason to believe that said person will again revert without ending the discussion on the talk page. Merkcid (talk) 20:15, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) FWIW, Sanigtha Ran111 has not generally been avoiding discussion, as the article talk page indicates; your input at that page is, however, zero. If I were you, I would drop this now because you're on very thin ice. If someone reverts you yet again then you should not re-revert without discussion. You are under the spotlight for more than one reason and it really isn't a good place to be, so it is better to collaborate than to try to force your way. - Sitush (talk) 20:50, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
Its clear who has been avoiding the discussion when the user clearly is reverting giving the same reason of the revert he is reverting! Granted you have been having discussion with that user on your talk pages, but that in no way absolves a person of clearly ignoring a discussion. BTW, I have been on the article's talk pages as well. And your words "If someone reverts you yet again then you should not re-revert without discussion. You are under the spotlight for more than one reason and it really isn't a good place to be, so it is better to collaborate than to try to force your way." applies to that user more, since going by record that user will more likely revert without an end of discussion.

Merkcid I have posted my comments and ready to discuss. Also please review the references I have provided.

Like I was saying, "I told you so". Reverts before even seeing the talk page. Then a revert after seeing the talk page, then a revert again going back to the user's POV without discussion. Merkcid (talk) 04:21, 25 June 2015 (UTC)

  • To both of you: All this discussion of sources belongs on the article talk page, not here. —SpacemanSpiff 09:51, 25 June 2015 (UTC)

Cricket list updates[edit]

Looks good to me. Thanks. Johnlp (talk) 20:33, 26 June 2015 (UTC)

Johnlp Seem to have missed this, thanks. —SpacemanSpiff 18:05, 27 June 2015 (UTC)

Revdel please[edit]

Here. Roy Moore is a --bleep-- , but this needs to be cut. Thank you. [The Masked Avenger] 66.168.253.87 (talk) 05:19, 27 June 2015 (UTC)

I've revdelled it, but your posting of "is a bleep" isn't exactly Kosher either. —SpacemanSpiff 05:24, 27 June 2015 (UTC)
Point well taken. I'll refrain. Thanks. 66.168.253.87 (talk) 05:28, 27 June 2015 (UTC)

New Section[edit]

Then please remove the Marathi name of Zaheer Khan.

Cheers ! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ketkarah (talkcontribs) 05:44, 27 June 2015 (UTC)

I've done it, but you can also do it yourself, just reference the consensus in your edit summary. cheers. —SpacemanSpiff 06:03, 27 June 2015 (UTC)

Indic[edit]

Hi, can you please talk to User:Prasannarane61993? Said user is repeatedly adding Marathi to the lead of articles, against WP:INDICSCRIPTS and called me racist when I told them to refrain from doing so. --Rsrikanth05 (talk) 08:11, 27 June 2015 (UTC)

Sigh, I've left a warning to respect consensus and avoid the name calling, but you'll have to ask some other admin to help out if the problem persists as I see I might be involved here, having reverted him a couple of times. —SpacemanSpiff 13:05, 27 June 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. This problem happened a few years ago with Tamil Articles. --Rsrikanth05 (talk) 17:14, 27 June 2015 (UTC)
Said user is desperately tying their best to try and win an argument on their talk page. Among other things, I've invited them to be part of the discussion on the Mumbai/Bombay debate. --Rsrikanth05 (talk) 17:56, 27 June 2015 (UTC)
