Edit Request[edit]

I think the User:Rishika.dhanawade has added some unnecessary content through to Karan Singh Grover. Please can you remove it. Regards., Digvijay411 (talk) 2:54, 1 October 2015 (UTC)

Edit request[edit]

Hello!!!!! TheRedPenOfDoom I have made some recent edits to Hera Pheri 3 added and removed some content.There was a lot of irrelevant content in the article. I tried to make some changes as they are being verified by well known bollywood celebrity news website(Pinkvilla and others). After your edit I am guessing you made something wrong and deleted some important lines and stories. Please revert it to it's earlier state. Regards, Jashafi24 (talk) 8:17, 25 September 2015 (UTC)

Aahil Raza Ibrahim=[edit]

I have again opened the article Aahil Raza Ibrahim as now it has been improved and provided reliable references from newspapers User:Rishika.dhanawade — Preceding unsigned comment added by Rishika.dhanawade (talkcontribs)

link deletion reasoning[edit]

Back in 2013 you deleted several external links from the Sutro Baths page...

One of those links was to this pages:

This is a site I maintain. This page contains more Sutro Baths historical photographs than you will find anywhere, many from my own collection. There are no ads or malicious content. The national park service links to my website for historical information. What was the purpose of your deletion?

Edit request[edit]

Hello!!! TheRedPenOfDoom I have made some recent edits to Karanvir Bohra added and removed some content.Some user thinks that there is lot of irrelevant content in the article. Please can you help improving it.Please can you remove the data you feel is irrelevant. Regards, Rishika.dhanawade (talk) 5:21, 16 August 2015 (UTC)

Edit Request[edit]

Hello!!! TheRedPenOfDoom, Thank you for fullfilling my request and improving the article Karanvir Bohra. I also want to make a request to you to remove all the unnecessary trivia from the page Karan Singh Grover.It has too much of unnecessary stuff in the personal life section. Even in the career section things such as the actor being mobbed in public places and being appreciated by costars and colleagues have been added which I feel is inappropriate to be added over there. I had tried removing the content some time ago. But there is some user Durr-e-shehwar who again reverts my edits.Please can you take some steps against improvement of the article.

Forrester Research[edit]

I see you removed a reference to Forrester Research. Isn't it encyclopedic?NSpehler (talk) 2:32, 24 September 2015 (UTC)


what is your problem, there are thousands of articles that has not powerful sources, in Pakistan, the primary news paper published material very often. So we use sources that are less primary, but that doesn't mean they are crap. I have been very patient with you and never interrupt you edits, but what i have don in last edit of mine is not right. Please i am requesting you that you can trust me with the edits that they are not invalid, i also don't use references such as Reviewit and imdb, but refrences, like Brandsynario, HIP they are valid and they give information in our tv industry when other don't. you can review or change the edits but cannot undid. I am not other editors i know what i am writing and i am solely responsible for this. If i think any edits of mine that doesn't comply with rules and regulations i myself will delete it or remove it. Fushan007 Talk 18:37, 26 September 2015 (UTC)


Hi Pen, Fushan has asked me to intervene at Diyar-e-Dil. Could you please tell me what specifically about this content you found problematic? I understand that you object to some of the references used, can you tell me which ones? I do understand that when editors make these giant edits it's difficult to see what was changed, but I can also understand from Fushan's perspective that he went through a lot of trouble and he's not getting clear edification on what is wrong with the content. Thanks. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 14:31, 26 September 2015 (UTC)


Saw your your edits on my talk page, and yeah im working on that cleaning up thing. Sammy.joseph (talk) 14:59, 26 September 2015 (UTC)

Poor ref on DeD[edit]

Pen, i clearly understood your point i always have, that's why i never interrupt on the edits of other editors you undid. But in my case i am confident that my content is true and authentic, and is written in a way it should be written. And your concern with the sources, i am removing as less important references as i can. I already deleted refrences that were twice used or according to you is not ok. Tell me you remove my critical reception part, where as strong sources were presented such as Dawn News and Aaaj News, in rating section i used official and authentic Broadcasters' Audience Research Board references and BizAsia an Indian online rating channel for UKs programming. Tell me are these invalid or Crap sources?.

I am not user Sammy.joseph who is new to Wikipedia, i have made series of an article and they are believed to be good and never question. In Pakistan Television Industry media sources are very few who are acclaimed but that doesn't mean they are crap. No matter how much you referred me to Wikipedia policies or rules, i know them very well. I am asking you to believe in my edits and i will try to clean as much CRAP as possible and actually i always have. Fushan007 Talk 9:244, 26 September 2015 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for September 28[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited List of Comedy Nights with Kapil episodes, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Arbaz Khan (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Message from jmcve146 regarding Dual Survival (season 5)[edit]

Episode descriptions are supposed to be descriptive. In case you forgot, here's the definition of describe: "1.give an account in words of (someone or something), including all the relevant characteristics, qualities, or events" I was using the actual descriptions released by the production company. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jmcve146 (talkcontribs)

(talk page stalker) Jmcve146, being snarky is probably not the way to go here. You're almost certain to inspire a puckish editor to snarkily reply in kind, "In case you forgot, here's the definition of copyright violation". You are not permitted to copy, or even closely paraphrase content from other sources, as this represents a copyright violation. Though we are allowed to use excerpts if properly attributed, we cannot base large portions of an article on these excerpts, and this is a specific problem with television episode summaries, since if everyone "excerpted" the way you did, the entire article would be one large copyright violation. The WikiProject Television community expects editors who have seen the episode to write summaries from scratch in their own words. You have a 100-200 word leeway to do so. Hope that helps.

i had worked on that one a while back and i thought it had been cleaned up, but maintenance is apparently a never ending task! At least there the ref spam seems mostly legit sources - so that is a plus. -- TRPoD aka The Red Pen of Doom 16:11, 1 October 2015 (UTC)

mawra hocane[edit]

Hi, I have noticed your speedy has just been removed from the above article by someone, when only advertorials, and a face-book page are being used as references – Oh, and least I forget, association with a famous person (which would make most of us eligible for our own WP article). I think it should be speeded again until the subject becomes notable. This smacks to me of 'paid editor' work. Together with User:Bulova1875 & User:IntrigueBulova

mawra hocane is mentioned on the google entry to:

>< Of course there might be more than one person with this name but the site has photographs of the model.<

Also there is:


As you know, as a PR exercise companies give away free stuff so that it can be seen in the media. Wikipedia:Endorsements#Models It appears prima facie that their is a COI in bumping up the profile of one of their Endorsers above the notability water-level. As well as not declaring COI on articles about this company. Can any WP admin find out were all these IPS are located?--Aspro (talk) 13:57, 2 October 2015 (UTC)

ICTF FAQ[edit]

Hi RP, if you get any extra time, I'd appreciate if you could take a look at User:Cyphoidbomb/ICTF FAQ. I'm trying to put together a list of reliable/unreliable sources for the Indian cinema task force to make enforcing community preferences a little easier. Any help you can provide with adding links to RSN discussions or other discussions would be appreciated, or just fleshing out the various sections would be appreciated. No pressure, however. I was somewhat inspired after seeing editors at MSG-2 The Messenger add some box office values based on really dodgy blogs. Where some sites were estimating ~Rs. 4 crore, these blogs were claiming 100+. Also troubling when yesterday I noted some reviews that suggested very explicitly that the lead actor, a "god man" was paying people to attend screenings and things like that. Very questionable.

There was a change to her birthday left unreverted for how long I don't know, but then there's this series of edits started off by an editor who's been suitably warned, can you take a look and make sense of it please? cheers.

Signa Vianen [edit]

I am sorry about the misunderstanding. Clearly I am new to this. Furthermore, the article is not promotional. The facts are there and you even removed links to authentic sources. The subject in that article is Dutch and the data has been online for all involved parties to see. If there had been errors, said parties would have edited those errors. I fail to see why you are so adamant to delete most of the article whereas there is absolutely wrong. I already made a request on the noticeboard, so that editors could keep a close watch after a stalker intentionally started adding crap to the content. And from what I have seen, you edited and then referred to my edits as `crap. It is not at all crap. It is all facts and one does not have to be Dutch to understand such. — Preceding unsigned comment added by LondonTurk (talkcontribs) 22:07, 5 October 2015 (UTC)

To be honest, I am not engaging in any kind of war. I first looked up your ID and it said that you were an illegal editor. From there on I proceeded editing and even adding authentic sources as requested. You removed those. Basically, I fail to see what is the issue. You objected but to what did you object, since you removed authentic sources. — Preceding unsigned comment added by LondonTurk (talkcontribs) 22:16, 5 October 2015 (UTC)


Hello, TheRedPenOfDoom. I believe that in this edit you describe a living person in potentially defamatory terms. Per WP:BLP, I consider that inappropriate. I am not going to harass you about this; this is going to be my only comment on the issue. I do believe, however, that if you continue to use that kind of language in edit summaries other users will eventually have to address the issue. FreeKnowledgeCreator (talk) 22:27, 5 October 2015 (UTC)

Signa Vianen [edit]

You refer to it as being promotional, but it is called describing one´s individual assets. And it has been done often time, right here on Wikipedia. I have come across the strangest content over the years and I truly wonder what is the problem here. I do not see any pictures anywhere, I only see data, actual facts and records. Individuals have their individual track records. Suriname by the way is a third world country with a population under 600.000, it is easily understood that your skepticism originates from whatever cultural background you have. You need not alter the article, the facts were correct. And the dictionary was really the first of its kind, from Dutch to the local dialect and vice versa. This country used to be a Dutch colony and you are clearly unaware of its history. What kind of sources do you need, as you removed a link to visual content as published by a local university. Do you need newspaper articles perhaps or will you delete those too because you won´t understand a word of it as none of it is in English. Do reinstate article in its original form. = — Preceding unsigned comment added by LondonTurk (talkcontribs) 22:29, 5 October 2015 (UTC) Eraser of Stalker Edits 22:41, 5 October 2015 (UTC)
