Welcome to wikipedia. Since you are a regular quizzer, I hope you will wander into more articles instead of getting stuck in the IIPM stuff :-) Tintin 17:27, 20 October 2005 (UTC)

RFC on IIPM[edit]

I've added an RFC on IIPM here. Please stop by and give your comments --Ravikiran 14:05, 14 November 2005 (UTC)

Thank you![edit]

Hi Spartiate,

Thank you very much for your support on my RfA. I was both surprised and delighted about the amount of support votes and all the kind words! If I can ever help with anything or if you have any comments about my actions as an admin, please let me know! Regards, JoanneB 15:44, 21 November 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for your words[edit]

Hi Kunal, Thanks for your comments about Drnoamchomsky. I am not much of a contributor to wikipedia, but I hate people vandalizing it. His pungent comments have made me keep a constant watch on IIPM edits. Peasea 02:20, 25 November 2005 (UTC)

Re:Indian military ranks[edit]

Hey, I am fine with them. Thanks for the words, and besides I don't own the article! Happy holidays : )

Sanket Alekar[edit]

Eeshan's friend has apparently created a fake page on wikipedia. It seems real but I am pretty sure its not. What is the procedure for VfD ?

Kunalthakar 06:14, 6 December 2005 (UTC)
I've deleted the article and I've requested a permanent block over its recreation. Regards, =Nichalp «Talk»= 04:32, 8 December 2005 (UTC)

Congratulations ![edit]

There are a few landmarks that you pass on becoming a real Wikipedian - having User:Willy_On_Wheels create a user name like User:Spartiate On Wheels, Boothy (who sadly no longer votes) vote against you in WP:RfA, have your user page vandalised etc. It is good to see that you are getting there ! Tintin 12:03, 14 December 2005 (UTC)


I just saw your name on Nichalp's talk page, and came here after seeing some of your edits. And, surely, your edits are fine. Please continue the collaborative effort to build the best encyclopedia in the world. And, happy New Year. --Bhadani 14:18, 14 December 2005 (UTC)

Needs attention[edit]

Dude the page 'Liberalism_in_India' needs your help, badly done. Abhishek 14:07, 18 December 2005 (UTC)

Template:Infobox Indian Army Regiments[edit]

Are you all done with this test template? If so, please mark it {{db-author}} for speedy deletion. -- Netoholic @ 07:14, 25 December 2005 (UTC)

Hi, that one's not a test template, I was actually trying to get it to work, but couldn't because of my technical ignorance and lack of time. I will try and get it to work properly soon, failing which I will mark it for deletion like you asked.--Kunal (Talk) 17:44, 30 December 2005 (UTC)
I made some changes that should help you, especially in getting the optional fields working. -- Netoholic @ 02:19, 14 January 2006 (UTC)


I wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year. --Bhadani 17:18, 25 December 2005 (UTC)

RfA thanks from Deathphoenix[edit]

Hi Kunal,

I just wanted to thank you for supporting me in my RfA. To tell you the truth, I was surprised by all the support I've gotten. I never saw myself as more than an occasional Wiki-hobbyist.

My wife sends her curses, as Wikipedia will likely suck up more of my time. She jokingly (I think) said she was tempted to log on to Wikipedia just to vote Oppose and let everyone know that she didn't want her husband to be an admin.

I'll make sure your trust in me is founded. Maybe I'll see you at Talk:Umrao Singh, or any of the rank insignia pages. :-) --Deathphoenix 14:22, 28 December 2005 (UTC)

Pages up for deletion[edit]

I am a Doric Kretan a progeny of the Spartans, If I gather correctly from your user name. Fascinating. Anyway, there are two pages up for deletion, Revolution within the form which is a principle of the John Birch Society and Cretan/Spartan connection that you will find interesting. I ask for a vote to transwiki. Thanks. WHEELER 00:41, 3 March 2006 (UTC)


Hi, I believe you may be interested in this. --Gurubrahma 12:52, 15 March 2006 (UTC)

Heard that you won the Pune leg of Mahaquizzer. Well done. Tintin (talk) 03:51, 22 May 2006 (UTC)

Arnab Ray[edit]

Hello Kunal, I know you from a few quizzes I'd attended in Pune. You seem like the blog reading type, so in case you follow Greatbong, could you add some details to the Arnab Ray article I started? I was thinking of a writings section for example. Thanks.Chimpionspeak (talk) 22:19, 24 March 2010 (UTC)
