Welcome[edit]

Welcome!

Hello and welcome to Wikipedia. Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. The following links will help you begin editing on Wikipedia:

Please bear these points in mind while editing Wikipedia

The Wikipedia tutorial is a good place to start learning about Wikipedia. If you have any questions, see the help pages, add a question to the village pump or ask me on my talk page. By the way, you can sign your name on Talk and discussion pages using four tildes, like this: ~~~~ (the software will replace them with your signature and the date). Again, welcome!

June 2011[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia, and thank you for your contributions. One of the core policies of Wikipedia is that articles should always be written from a neutral point of view. A contribution you made to Gowda appears to carry a non-neutral point of view, and your edit may have been changed or reverted to correct the problem. Please remember to observe this important core policy. Thank you. Abhishek Talk to me 06:29, 2 June 2011 (UTC)

Please do not add commentary or your own personal analysis to Wikipedia articles, as you did to Kolar Gold Fields. Doing so violates Wikipedia's neutral point of view policy and breaches the formal tone expected in an encyclopedia. Thank you. Abhishek Talk to me 06:30, 2 June 2011 (UTC)

Your recent edits[edit]

Information.svg Hello. In case you didn't know, when you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion, you should sign your posts by typing four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment. You could also click on the signature button Insert-signature.png located above the edit window. This will automatically insert a signature with your username or IP address and the time you posted the comment. This information is useful because other editors will be able to tell who said what, and when. Thank you. --SineBot (talk) 07:38, 2 June 2011 (UTC)

July 2011[edit]

Please do not add or change content without verifying it by citing reliable sources, as you did to Bangalore. Please review the guidelines at Wikipedia:Citing sources and take this opportunity to add references to the article. Thank you. Commander (Ping Me) 16:13, 7 July 2011 (UTC)

I will add the necessary references. Kindly bear with me.- Thanks telasitis

Well what are you trying to say? Don't link the present with past. As of now the Tamil speaking population is predominant in Bangalore, hence there is nothing wrong in listing Tamil as a major language next to Kannada. --Commander (Ping Me) 05:25, 11 July 2011 (UTC)

The evidence presented as the basis for the said assertion reads 'Kannada, English, Hindi, Telugu and Tamil are widely spoken and understood'. Why is the information modified in wiki? Is this modification a result of personal analysis. Moreover, if you are stating that Tamil is predominant next to kannada in Bangalore, that would require reliable evidence. Regarding your advice not to link present with past, I will review wiki guidelines. - thanks telasits

February 2012[edit]

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Bangalore. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Please be particularly aware, Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made; that is to say, editors are not automatically "entitled" to three reverts.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing.  Abhishek  Talk 02:27, 11 February 2012 (UTC)

Formatting on Vokkaliga[edit]

Greetings, I just did a quick copyedit on Vokkaliga, a few suggestions:

  • Generally speaking, words are not bolded other than the lede term; the article when I cleaned it had about 62 bolded words. There's no need to bold the names of each tribe/sub-group that occurs.
  • Italicising specifically non-English terms is fine though, although as a minor unofficial preference I suggest that such words not be capitalised unless they are proper nouns or otherwise capitalised in their native language. For example if I say "The guitarist Gato Jones was nicknamed for the Spanish word gato (cat)", there's no need to type Gato.
  • At many points, particularly during lists, there was no space following commas: "London,Paris,Oslo" rather than "London, Paris, Oslo". Similarly lots of missing spaces after periods. "He said this.Then he said that."
  • When making sub-sections, such as in "Subgroups", rather than bold the term and skip lines, just type three equals-signs: ===Tribe A=== That way it appears cleaner, and will also be listed in the Table of Contents at the top of the article.

If you can keep an eye out for such copyediting errors, it'll make things cleaner. On a separate note, I have some concerns that some of your edits appear to be OR/SYNTH, particularly places where you cite a source (which is great), but then criticise the source. It's not clear if you're citing another RS's criticism (which is great), or are providing your own (WP:OR).

In any case, just a few suggestions. Thanks for your substantial work overall. MatthewVanitas (talk) 17:28, 13 March 2012 (UTC)
