Burmese Indians[edit]

Hi Vinay84! Several days ago I began the GA review for Burmese Indians and left some comments at Talk:Burmese Indians/GA1.

Indian Army during World War I[edit]

Hi you may have seen this article just transformed at present it has no details from the Indian Army (1895–1947) article. If you want to help edit feel free to jump in. One problem I have is a complete lack of reference material on the Indian Army so any thing you can add there would be great. --Jim Sweeney (talk) 18:33, 4 September 2009 (UTC)

Hows this ?

Force C is a problem we should have links to the 1/2 battalions involved at the moment the links are to the areas. Do you have any knowledge of the correct regiment names and if so do they have articles ? --Jim Sweeney (talk) 11:45, 5 September 2009 (UTC)

Shouldn't 5th Light Infantry be added to Force C? They were deployed to East Africa after the mutiny. --HistorianBell 08:28, 7 September 2009 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by HistorianBell (talkcontribs)

  • I have always seen them listed as the 5th Light Infantry (e.g. Farwell, Armies of the Raj, Hopkirk, Like Hidden Fire, and on http://www.britishempire.co.uk/forces/armyunits/indianinfantry/5thltinf.htm). Apparently, pre 1903 reform, they were the 5th Bengal (Light) Infantry (earlier they had been 5th Bengal Native (Light) Infantry (1861-1885) and originally 2nd Battalion, 21st Bengal Native Infantry(1803 - 1824)). I think the only Mahratta Light Infantry during the First World War were 103, 105, and 110th Maharatta Light Infantry (2 of which were with Force D)(reposted here as well in case). --HistorianBell 09:44, 7 September 2009 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by HistorianBell (talkcontribs)

Here's the citation: "The 5th Indian Light Infantry was reconstituted and sent to fight in Africa, first in the Cameroons and then in the East Aftican campaign." -Byron Farwell, Armies of the Raj: From the Great Indian Mutiny to Independence: 1858-1947 (New York: W.W. Norton and Company, 1989) p. 244. That would make them part of Force C, I think, as a reinforcement. Also, take a look at this thesis http://cgsc.cdmhost.com/cgi-bin/showfile.exe?CISOROOT=/p4013coll2&CISOPTR=65&filename=66.pdf#search=%22german%20east%20africa%3ECISOSEARCHAL%22, the author has the OOB for Force B. --HistorianBell 18:21, 7 September 2009 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by HistorianBell (talkcontribs)

Hi in the Independent brigades I am getting a bit concerned that there is no further information on he South Persia Brigade which was formed in 1915, for service in south Persia and the Gulf. I am starting to think it may be a forerunner of Indian Expeditionary Force D only because of the location of both. Do you have any details or further info ?--Jim Sweeney (talk) 09:51, 9 September 2009 (UTC)
Yes go ahead and add it to the list - there is normally a delay of 2/3 weeks so it gives time to polish it --Jim Sweeney (talk) 08:07, 11 September 2009 (UTC)
You might want to keep an eye on Wikipedia:WikiProject Military history/Peer review/Indian Army during World War I I have put it in for a peer review from Wikipedia:WikiProject Military history --Jim Sweeney (talk) 09:28, 15 September 2009 (UTC)

HEY![edit]

Please please please do not just add articles with NO TEXT. Please I know you are trying to help Wikipedia by giving notable subjects but do not just add articles with a template and no words! People will delete that otherwise. So please add words and a reference to prove the events are real and not made up and make everyone happy! Kind regards.Calaka (talk) 13:25, 6 September 2009 (UTC)

It is OK. I just hate seeing people add a lot of content on Wiki then the next day they see it all deleted because they did not follow the minimum requirements for Wikipedia (i.e. a cat, a reference (to establish notability), WORDS, and to wikify the article). Happy editing.Calaka (talk) 13:34, 6 September 2009 (UTC)

Burmese Indians[edit]

Hi. The text says The term "Burmese Indian" refers to a broad range of ethnic groups from South Asia, most notably from present-day Bangladesh and India. Shouldn't that include Nepal (there is a sizable gurkha population in Burma, if I'm not mistaken.) I'm assuming that you're an expert on this :-) --RegentsPark (sticks and stones) 17:02, 15 September 2009 (UTC)

For a 'not an expert', you're doing a great job with the article! --RegentsPark (sticks and stones) 12:51, 16 September 2009 (UTC)

IX Corps (India)[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of IX Corps (India), and it appears to include a substantial copy of http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/world/india/9-corps.htm. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material; such additions will be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. See our copyright policy for further details.

This message was placed automatically, and it is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article and it would be appreciated if you could drop a note on the maintainer's talk page. CorenSearchBot (talk) 08:48, 18 September 2009 (UTC)

Hi. I appreciate that you made some efforts to paraphrase the text on IX Corps (India) so it would no longer be a copyright infringement. Unfortunately, adding synonyms and minor alterations in the sentences won't relieve the plagiarism issue. As it is currently written, the text will need to be deleted as a copyright violation. You are welcome to rewrite the text using original language. The page on WP:Close paraphrasing can provide you with some explanations and help. In the long run, it is always better to simply write the text from scratch using your own words. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. Regards. Theleftorium 16:46, 18 September 2009 (UTC)

Indian Army during World War II[edit]

Yes - sounds good at the moment I am working through the List of regiments of the Indian Army (1903) trying to create articles for all of them. I did the cavalry some time ago and have now started on the infantry. Sorry to say most are just stubs (see 43rd Erinpura Regiment for example) but at least its a start. --Jim Sweeney (talk) 13:40, 21 September 2009 (UTC)

Great I did a quick check and I am unable to find anything for the 49th Garhwal Rifles and the 50th Kumaon Rifles so if you could find out anything about them. --Jim Sweeney (talk) 13:46, 21 September 2009 (UTC)
There is this which gives us some basic information http://www.britishempire.co.uk/forces/armyunits/indianinfantry/indianinfantry1903.htm
Thankyou for your edits and efforts here both of you for this under-documented area. Can I politely please request you to add sources for the List of Regiments - preferably hardcopy books - and the individual regiments? It's much more difficult for others who come afterwards to do so. As a start, can you tell me where you got the list of regiments in 1903? Best regards Buckshot06(prof) 10:33, 23 September 2009 (UTC)
65th Yes looks like another made up one unable to source it --Jim Sweeney (talk) 16:17, 23 September 2009 (UTC)
Vinay, can you confirm that the 1903 list at the British Empire site is exactly the same - with no omissions/changes - as your list? If so, would you please change the page linked to the individual service arms - cavalry, artillery, infantry - for each section? Thanks Buckshot06(prof) 21:43, 23 September 2009 (UTC)
Removed some of the infantry that were no longer around in 1903 --Jim Sweeney (talk) 09:09, 24 September 2009 (UTC)
Vinay, you asked if sources for lists could only go at the bottom. If Jim can confirm that the list is exactly the same as one of the two sources, then yes. Then you remove the other source, because it's not being used. But Jim's just said that the list has regiments that were not around in 1903, and thus it's a composite listing from more than one source. Deviations from the main source should be footnoted, yes. That would apply whether we had WP:MILMOS or not. Does that explain better? Buckshot06(prof) 20:32, 24 September 2009 (UTC)
Did the Gurkha regiments come under any of the commands or did they remain separate / --Jim Sweeney (talk) 12:09, 25 September 2009 (UTC)
Are you sure about the Gurkhas I have a source that says there were 20 battalions in 10 regiments so presumed that was two battalions each - the date is 1914 so they could have formed between 1903 -1914 --Jim Sweeney (talk) 07:39, 26 September 2009 (UTC)

Category fauna of India[edit]

Hi Vinay, just a note. There have been too many attempts to do category fauna of XXX country and there is a problem since most of these are too slipshod. Additionally it is very difficult to cite or see the validty of the classification. List of fauna of XXX is usually a lot better since there one can add citations and sources. The problem is perhaps due to one IP editor who frequently adds Fauna of Pakistan and keeps declaring certain animals/plants/bacteria etc. as national xxx of Pakistan and so forth. The current categories do not serve much purpose since List of reptiles of South Asia is a better option for people to browse from. Shyamal (talk) 08:20, 30 September 2009 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Pmstudy[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Pmstudy, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page seems to be unambiguous advertising which only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become an encyclopedia article. Please read the guidelines on spam and Wikipedia:FAQ/Business for more information.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button that looks like this: Speedy delete contest button.png which appears inside of the speedy deletion ({{db-...}}) tag (if no such tag exists, the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate). Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Hello. Concerning your contribution, Edusys global, please note that Wikipedia cannot accept copyrighted text or images obtained from other web sites or printed material, without the permission of the author(s). This article or image appears to be a direct copy from http://www.edusysglobal.com/. As a copyright violation, Edusys global appears to qualify for deletion under the speedy deletion criteria. Edusys global has been tagged for deletion, and may have been deleted by the time you see this message.

If you believe that the article or image is not a copyright violation, or if you have permission from the copyright holder to release the content freely under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License (CC-BY-SA) then you should do one of the following:

  • If you have permission from the author, leave a message explaining the details at Talk:Edusys global and send an email with the message to permissions-en@wikimedia.org. See Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission for instructions.
  • If a note on the original website states that it is licensed under the CC-BY-SA license, leave a note at Talk:Edusys global with a link to where we can find that note.

Copyright and advertising[edit]

Please read Wikipedia:Copy-paste. Copyright is a serious issue for Wikipedia: we cannot host copyright material, even in user pages, even if it is only here temporarily as a basis for rewriting, unless a formal copyright release has been made as described at WP:Donating copyrighted materials. Minor rewording is not enough; asserting permission to use is not enough. Copied material will be deleted at sight. You must either arrange a release or write the material in your own words before you submit it.

In fact, material copied from web-sites is very unlikely to be suitable, because websites are designed to promote, but Wikipedia is not for advertising or promotion of any kind, and is very resistant to attempts to use it that way. It requires a neutral point of view, and the WP:Verifiability policy requires that "any material challenged or likely to be challenged must be attributed to a reliable, published source." When you write for Wikipedia, you are not writing as a representative of Edusys or Pmstudy trying to persuade a customer to buy their services, you are an impartial author writing a factual description. Before writing a glowing adjective like "leading" or "economical and effective" or "excellent", imagine a hostile critic looking over your shoulder asking "Who says so? Can you prove it?"

If you are connected with Edusys, please read the guidelines WP:Conflict of interest and WP:BESTCOI. Remember that any article will have to establish notability by showing significant coverage in reliable, independent secondary sources. You may find the WP:FAQ/Organizations and User:JohnCD/Not a noticeboard helpful. JohnCD (talk) 09:35, 15 April 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of high school articles[edit]

Hello Vinay84, I have declined the speedy deletion requests for a couple of articles that you had requested. Per WP:AFDP#Schools, it has been established that all schools at the high school level are kept as articles unless we fail to verify their existence. Also, Jesuit College Preparatory School of Dallas doesn't have any significant promotional language in it from what I can tell. I just wanted to let you know in case you find another high school article that you'd like to see deleted, thank you. -- Atama 21:32, 29 April 2011 (UTC)

Hello friends, we are a number of editors from WikiProject India have got together to assess the many thousands of articles under the stewardship of the project, and we'd love to have you, a fellow member, join us. These articles require assessment, that is, the addition of a WikiProject template to the talk page of an article, assessing it for quality and importance and adding a few extra parameters to it.

As of March 11, 2012, 07:00 UTC, WikiProject India has 95,998 articles under its stewardship. Of these 13,980 articles are completely unassessed (both for class and importance) and another 42,415 articles are unassessed for importance only. Accordingly, a Tag & Assess 2012 drive-cum-contest has begun from March 01, 2012 to last till May 31, 2012.

If you are new to assessment, you can learn the minimum about how to evaluate from Part One of the Assessment Guide. Part Two of the Guide will help you learn to employ the full functionality of the talk page template, should you choose to do so.

You can sign up on the Tag & Assess page. There are a number of awards to be given in recognition of your efforts. Come & join us to take part in this exciting new venture. You'll learn more about India in this way.

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Asian 10,000 Challenge invite[edit]

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Asia/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge and Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like South East Asia, Japan/China or India etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. At some stage we hope to run some contests to benefit Asian content, a destubathon perhaps, aimed at reducing the stub count would be a good place to start, based on the current Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon which has produced near 200 articles in just three days. If you would like to see this happening for Asia, and see potential in this attracting more interest and editors for the country/countries you work on please sign up and being contributing to the challenge! This is a way we can target every country of Asia, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant! Thank you. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 04:54, 21 October 2016 (UTC)
