...and have a question. In Shree Ram Lamichhane, is the Shree just an honorific that does not belong in the title? I created it based on the material I found, which tends to be honorific-heavier than Wikipedia.--Kintetsubuffalo (talk) 08:10, 7 December 2016 (UTC)
- @Kintetsubuffalo: Shree here seems to be a part of the name, as several sources mention him as "Mr. Shree Ram Lamichhane" ("Mr." is the English equivalent of "Shree", when the latter is not part of the name). utcursch | talk 12:16, 7 December 2016 (UTC)
- That's the full name of the person. No honorifics here. utcursch | talk 23:16, 7 December 2016 (UTC)
The India Star
|The India Star|
|Utcursch, I award you The India Star for all your hard work in WikiProject India-related articles (Villages in Madhya Pradesh) FITINDIA (talk) 06:36, 9 December 2016 (UTC)|
Hello Utcursch. Regarding your comment about map accuracy ... I have checked and came back with the following:
According to the "History of the Indo-Greeks" article (English Wikipedia), this is another Sindhu river, the Sindh River indeed located in central India and an affluent of the Chambal River. Here's the paragraph from the article where it is explained with references:
"Accounts of battles between the Greeks and the Shunga in Central India are also found in the Mālavikāgnimitram, a play by Kālidāsa which describes an encounter between Greek forces and Vasumitra, the grandson of Pushyamitra, during the latter's reign.("Indo-Greek, Indo-Scythian and Indo-Parthian coins in the Smithsonian institution", Bopearachchi, p16. Also: "Kalidasa recounts in his Mālavikāgnimitra (5.15.14–24) that Puspamitra appointed his grandson Vasumitra to guard his sacrificial horse, which wandered on the right bank of the Sindhu river and was seized by Yavana cavalrymen- the later being thereafter defeated by Vasumitra. The "Sindhu" referred to in this context may refer the river Indus: but such an extension of Shunga power seems unlikely, and it is more probable that it denotes one of two rivers in central India -either the Sindhu river which is a tributary of the Yamuna, or the Kali-Sindhu river which is a tributary of the Chambal." The Yuga Purana, Mitchener, 2002.)"

- नमस्ते जी मैं हिन्दी विकिपीडिया पर काफी सक्रिय हूँ , जी आपने Kuldhara लेख बनाया है वहां पर आप खुद गए थे क्या ? आप अंग्रेज़ी में जवाब दे सकते है लेकिन मैं शुद्ध अंग्रेज़ी नहीं जानता हूँ इस कारण ।Raju Suthar 17:47, 14 December 2016 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by राजु सुथार (talk • contribs)

Hi. I noticed that you protected the Miesha Tate article and I wanted to bring the Jessica Eye article to your attention as well. It's become the target of a vandal who continually deletes info based on personal opinion, not policy. This person is using mutiple IPs. I will try reporting it formally. -- James26 (talk) 12:27, 18 December 2016 (UTC)
- Looks like it has already been protected. utcursch | talk 14:58, 18 December 2016 (UTC)

Whats your problem?
I read tons and tons of wikipedia pages with no sources. For some things common sense is enough and a source is not needed. For example, your page says your from India. So you must look Indian from Indian parents. If I ask you for a source to prove this, can you provide one? Yes, but you don't need to cause its common sense. Same way you keep reverting certain additions or edits I make and leaveva note asking for sources. Some of those sections which I added info to have been there for years but you removed the entire section after I added something. Why? Everyone knows wikipedia editors are frustrated people but you should appreciate content other people add. Hope you can stop being a nuisance. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 13:04, 24 December 2016 (UTC)

- @Faiyazshaikh123: In this edit, you changed "mythology" to "history". Legends about Shiva, Parvati, Vishnu etc. are not history. If you believe otherwise, please provide a reliable source. utcursch | talk 16:13, 5 January 2017 (UTC)
well it is History, why don't you have common rules for all sects for eg Islam mythology, Christian Mythology, Buddhist mythology. Why does it happen with only Hinduism. Also please tell me what kind of proof would suffice. For eg. Do you know to read sanskrit? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Faiyazshaikh123 (talk • contribs) 16:16, 5 January 2017 (UTC)
- @Faiyazshaikh123: There is Christian mythology, Islamic mythology etc. As stated earlier, please have a look at WP:RS to see what kind of sources are acceptable. If you have any doubts, you can start a new discussion at WP:RSN. I'd recommend going through Wikipedia tutorial, if you haven't already. utcursch | talk 16:20, 5 January 2017 (UTC)
in that case is the bible part of christian mythology and the quran part of islamic mythology. honest question coz you're the first person i've come across who accepts christian mythology and islamic mythology. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Faiyazshaikh123 (talk • contribs) 14:30, 7 January 2017 (UTC)
- Parts of those books are mythology, yes. But this is not a place for such debates. See WP:NOT#FORUM. utcursch | talk 20:30, 7 January 2017 (UTC)

Dear brother Utkarsh....why r u deleting.my uploads to 1989 Bhagalpur riots...it is true...i live at sabor of bgp where it happened....the bunni mentioned in Wikipedia had breast cut due to cancer not due to riot...i can prove u...do I.... . she still has cancer threpy scars of masactomy ...

Ok...thanks for your share.... Pl
- I undid your edits because they included addition of unsourced content, removal of references and vandalism. Also, please have a look at WP:NOTCENSORED. I'd suggest going through WP:TUTORIAL, if you haven't already. utcursch | talk 20:30, 7 January 2017 (UTC)
