I would imagine that this page no longer warrants pending-change protection? Cheers,  Chzz  ►  04:10, 8 September 2010 (UTC)

The newsletter is already delivered. Why would it need to be changed? -- Tinu Cherian - 04:35, 8 September 2010 (UTC)
I was just looking at 'odd' pages tagged for pending-changes protection, because the trial is over, and there is currently considerable dispute as to whether PC should be removed, as there is no consensus approval.
There are no other newsletters which are tagged with pending changes protection.
If delivered through substitution, protection is not necessary. If transcluded, then it is possible that semi- or full-protection might be appropriate, I suppose. Best,  Chzz  ►  14:28, 9 September 2010 (UTC)

Creating village articles using AWB?

The recent run of articles like Rokkadakatti (in which I have participated, I have to say) has gotten me thinking; do you think there would be complaint if I began filling in templates such as this one using AWB? It's not difficult - I can create the redlinked articles using Rokkadakatti as a template. It would fill out those settlement templates, and it would make life easier for a lot of people by eliminating a ton of manual work.

What do you think? Would it fly? I'm going to be unavailable for a bit starting early next week, but I'd be happy to do them upon my return. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 14:24, 17 September 2010 (UTC)

Want to attend Bangalore Meetup 19


I am a complete newbie in terms of content contribution to wikipedia, though I use it for information very regularly. I recently came to know about the wikipedia meetups that happen in bangalore. I am not sure if those meetups are only for experienced wikipedians.

Can you let me know if the meetup (scheduled on 24th) is open for guys like me (no contribution till now, but very much willing to become an active contributor)? If yes, please include me in the participants list and send me a confirmation.

--Sujay27 (talk) 09:03, 22 September 2010 (UTC)

Any interested person can attend. Please find more details at WP:MBL19.. Do come.. -- Tinu Cherian - 09:16, 22 September 2010 (UTC)

Adopt-a-user reminder

Hello, I have completed a general cleanup of the adopter information page for the adopt-a-user project, located here. During my cleanup, I have removed several inactive and retired users. In order to provide interested adoptees with an easy location to find adopters, it is essential that the page be up-to-date with the latest information possible. Thus:

  • If you are no longer interested in being an adopter, please remove yourself from the list.
  • If you are still interested, please check the list to see if any information needs to be updated or added - especially your availability. Thank you.
  • You are receiving this message because you are listed as an adopter here.

Hi. :) User:Shrik88music has given me the go-ahead to find him a mentor (I've been encouraging him to seek adoption for a while), and I was thinking that perhaps you might be able to help? He seems to be primarily interested in Indian cinema, and I'm pretty sure English is not his first language. I believe that he is motivated, but is not fully understanding everything recommended to him. See, for instance, this note at the RSN. I had suggested he might go to that board; he made it to the talk page. Likewise, I told him about WP:DR, and he wound up at DRR's talk page. :/ Anyway, do you think you'd be up for helping him learn his way around? I am very pressed for time at the moment and have had some trouble communicating with him myself. If you're not up for it, please let me know, and I'll see if I can find somebody else who may be open for adopting. :) --Moonriddengirl (talk) 19:43, 27 September 2010 (UTC)

Hi. I see that you have edited just a little since I left this note, but have not perhaps had the chance to consider this or reply. I don't mean to be impatient, but please let me know as soon as you reasonably can whether you'd be willing or able to help out with this user. If you are not able, I will want to look for an alternative, as he is rather badly in need of assistance. Thanks. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 15:06, 28 September 2010 (UTC)
Sorry, I missed the note.. been busy with setting up Wikimeetup all over India.. :) I will talk to him tmrw , if it is ok-- Tinu Cherian - 16:52, 28 September 2010 (UTC)
Thanks. :D I'll let him know to expect you. Sorry if I seemed pushy; he's just a bit urgent, so I wanted to get hunting for an alternative if you had too much else going on. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 16:54, 28 September 2010 (UTC)
That is OK :) .. If you could find somebody else also, meanwhile, it will be great.. -- Tinu Cherian - 16:57, 28 September 2010 (UTC)
All right; I suspect more would be better. :) I've told him you'll stop by, and I'll see if I can find somebody else who may be able to help. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 16:59, 28 September 2010 (UTC)
User:E. Ripley has agreed to give a hand as well. Coincidentally, he already responded to his section on the reliable sources talk page. He's got wide familiarity with the project and might be able to help steer Shrik88 in the right direction. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 17:38, 28 September 2010 (UTC)
