Welcome[edit]

i read the article and the discussions in detail, and im really looking forward to further additions and information Umair, specially about my favorite song kia he jo pyar from the movie 'dil mera dharkan teri'== 09 May 2012 == Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, there is a Manual of Style that should be followed to maintain a consistent, encyclopedic appearance. Using different styles throughout the encyclopedia, as you did in Ahmed Rushdi, makes it harder to read. Please take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you. Please note that according to MOS:FLAG, flagicons should be avoided in infoboxes Muhandes (talk) 06:19, 1 September 2011 (UTC)

thank you very much for uprising me but flag icon has a fair usage on the wikipedia so I am reverting your edit. I hope you will keep co-operating like this.Umair Aj (talk) 11:20, 1 September 2011 (UTC)

this has nothing to do with fair usage. MOS:FLAG is very straightforward about this - no flagicons in infoboxes. --Muhandes (talk) 13:16, 1 September 2011 (UTC)

Welcome to Wikipedia. Everyone is welcome to contribute to the encyclopedia, but when you add or change content, as you did to the article Ahmed Rushdi, please cite a reliable source for your addition. This helps maintain our policy of verifiability. See Wikipedia:Citing sources for how to cite sources, and the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you. The sources you added were self published and therefore unreliable. Please don't add unreliable sources. Muhandes (talk) 10:19, 12 September 2011 (UTC)

Blogs, forums, wikis and every other self-published material is not considered reliable, please don't use it in citations. Please also note the following.
  • In this edit you introduced links to Hero which does not link to the film with that name. Please check links you add.
  • In the same edit you introduced a link to Millennium which is a simple English word which should not be linked per WP:OVERLINK.
  • In this edit you said "no need to give sources separately". I strongly disagree. WP:V requires every fact to be sourced and the citation should be made right next to the fact. Giving a bunch of sources for a bunch of facts is much worse than sourcing each fact specifically. The only place where this is not necessary is where a single source can verify an entire paragraph, not the case here.
Best regards. --Muhandes (talk) 10:33, 12 September 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for your guidence. I will keep this in my mind.Umair Aj (talk) 17:23, 12 September 2011 (UTC)

I'm happy you understand. However, again you added an unreliable source. A self published blog is not considered a reliable source. Please peruse the above linked guideline. Also, in the same edit, you replaced a maintenance template, {{by whom}} with the words "by some composers", which does not resolve the problem at all. --Muhandes (talk) 20:30, 12 September 2011 (UTC)

Thanks once again. Your guidline is uprising me on the subject. This time I have changed the statement in singing career. Umair Aj (talk) 06:29, 13 September 2011 (UTC)

I agree it is much clearer now. I still wish we had more reliable sources in this article. While I come from a different culture and never heard of him, the person seems deserving of a better article.--Muhandes (talk) 10:05, 13 September 2011 (UTC)
I am greatful that you have helped me a lot. You are right this singer deserves a lot more and I will keep trying to improve this article. I hope you will keep helping me in future also.
Regards. --Umair Aj (talk) 11:46, 13 September 2011 (UTC)

Zubaida Khanum[edit]

My salaams to you brother Umair Aj, We both may be equal admirers of Zubaida Khanum and also her fans. My intention in editing the article was to add some more useful info to it. Hope you did not take it personally, if you have been editing Zubaida Khanum a lot in the past. I am 70 years old and was living in Pakistani Punjab (Faisalabad) at the time, when Zubaida Khanum's career was at its peak. Surely my generation people know that she sang many super-hit Punjabi duet songs with Inayat Hussain Bhatti, for example in (film Kartar Singh (1959) that was a super-hit song both in Indian Punjab and Pakistani Punjab. Who can forget her mega-hit Naat with Saleem Raza in film Noor-e-Islam (1957)? I admit my mistake that Ahmed Rushdi's name got deleted by me but my intention was not to offend anyone. Let's work with each other and not be so quick to revert each other's work. Instead, let's communicate with each other because all of us are trying to make Pakistani articles better on Wikipedia. On Shani Arshad article, I had removed a couple of the 'dead links' that I saw. I edit Wikipedia as a hobby. I would never intentionally vandalize Wikipedia !!!

Want to help test advanced new tools planned for Recent Changes?[edit]

Hi Umair Aj! I’m reaching out to you because our logs tell us you’re an active Twinkle new user welcomer. The WMF Collaboration team is working on new tools that we hope will be useful to people engaged in reviewing recent changes, fighting vandalism or supporting new users. We want to test them for usability with editors who are experienced with relevant wiki work. If you’re interested in helping to shape this new technology—we’d like to hear from you.

The testing should take about an hour, will be conducted online, and will take place during the next few weeks. To participate, please email dchen[at]wikimedia.org with the subject line Twinkle Welcomer. Include the following information:

  • Username
  • Email where we can reach you
  • Your city or time zone
  • Best time to talk to you
  • Your primary use(s) of Twinkle or Recent Changes (e.g., reviewing recent changes, reviewing with a particular focus (specify), anti-vandalism, new-page review, welcoming new users, etc.)

Thanks!

A. Nayyar[edit]

What makes you certain that my edits to A. Nayyar are subject to vandalism? By reverting, you have removed several of my references and cross-verified information collated from authentic resources. Besides, you have also contributed to mismatching birthdays in the background information, which I had corrected in my edits.

So please explain what prompted you to revert my changes. Else, please re-revert if you realise the error. Thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Muzammil786 (talkcontribs) 04:53, 14 November 2016 (UTC)

I think you mean the confusion is on the "date of birth" and not "date of death"?

The date of birth is taken from a published Dawn article which quoted the interview with A. Nayyar as follows:

In an interview with Dawn in February this year, the singer had clarified that his date of birth mentioned on various websites — Sept 17, 1950 — was incorrect, saying he was born on April 14, 1955 in Ransonabad village, Sahiwal district.

The reference is authentic, clear and concise for your review.

Please consider the rebuttal to revert the edits conducted in error.

--Muzammil 22:49, 14 November 2016 (UTC)


Thanks for your reedit of the date of birth.

However, your attribution to the statement "Mohammad Rafi and Saleem Raza as the main inspirations" to me is incorrect. There are no such lines as per my last edit: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=A._Nayyar&oldid=749375898

Also I noticed that the time of death (8:30pm) you added is not cited. The sole reference to samaa.tv does not mention any such time. Does not it invalidate the "verified resource" policy of Wikipedia? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Muzammil786 (talkcontribs) 21:23, 15 November 2016 (UTC)

ArbCom Elections 2016: Voting now open![edit]

Scale of justice 2.svgHello, Umair Aj. Voting in the 2016 Arbitration Committee elections is open from Monday, 00:00, 21 November through Sunday, 23:59, 4 December to all unblocked users who have registered an account before Wednesday, 00:00, 28 October 2016 and have made at least 150 mainspace edits before Sunday, 00:00, 1 November 2016.

The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process.

Continuation of article talk page discussion[edit]

I am not belittling you; indeed, it looks like you're attempting to belittle me with "my dear", although I wonder if this is a language issue, and you misunderstand what "Oh dear" means. It is an expression of surprise, like "Wow" or "Oh my", it is not a form of "my dear", which used the way you used it is demeaning. Anyway, if you really don't want to be dragged into this issue any more, that's fine, but then DanJazzy will probably revert your changes. Is that what you mean? You can't impose your preference thru edit warring, accuse the other editor of edit warring without acknowledging your own share of the blame, then refuse to discuss, and instead make ad hominem attacks, and still expect to have your edits stick. So either participate in the talk page discussion, or accept that your edits will be reverted, whichever you prefer. I will block you from editing for a week if you revert that article again without making a good faith effort to discuss first. --Floquenbeam (talk) 23:35, 5 January 2017 (UTC)

Jhara Pahalwan copyright problem[edit]

Some of the material you included in the above article was copied from http://www.dostpakistan.pk/history-of-zubair-aslam-aka-jhara-pehalwan, a copyright web page. Copying text directly from a source is a copyright violation. Unfortunately, for copyright reasons, the content had to be removed. Please leave a message on my talk page if you have any questions or if you think I made a mistake. — Diannaa 🍁 (talk) 22:23, 5 February 2017 (UTC)

Inline references[edit]

Hi. I just reverted a couple of your edits which added inline references that didn't seem related to the article content, at Ellie Goulding and Parthen Rasithen. I just wanted to check that you understand that we add references to support the actual article content, not just something of general relevance. References are to provide the reader a way to verify content - they aren't just "general interest" links. See WP:REFSTART for more details. Apologies if there was something specific I missed in those 2 cases. -- Begoon 10:48, 17 September 2017 (UTC)

It is just fine with me and in a hurry, I did not check the relevance. Regret inconvenience. -Umair Aj (talk) 13:21, 17 September 2017 (UTC)
(I moved your reply back here because it's best to keep conversations in one place.)
No inconvenience. Sourcing of content is one of the most important aspects of any article, so I just wanted to make sure there were no misunderstandings. Thanks. -- Begoon 15:00, 17 September 2017 (UTC)

Your guidance is required[edit]

Your help is needed here on Ahmed Rushdi. An editor is putting the complete article on speedy deletion. What should be done?Umair Aj (talk) 12:39, 5 February 2018 (UTC)

Ok - the other editor now has a short block for continuing to edit war after a final warning and the deletion request was quickly closed. What you should learn from this is to remain calm in future, don't get drawn into edit wars, and have patience that, even though things don't get instantly solved in the way you would like, our processes usually arrive at the right end result even if it takes a little while. -- Begoon 14:37, 5 February 2018 (UTC)
Thank you for the guidance. You are right I have learned out of it. Regret inconvenience.-Umair Aj (talk) 14:41, 5 February 2018 (UTC)
