Mumbai police[edit]

Please give me suggestion for improving Mumbai Police article. My goal is to create article as of New York police just follow the link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nypd Suyogaerospace (talk) 12:13, 28 February 2008 (UTC)

Khillari Bull[edit]

I have created the Khillari Bull with some some external links referenced in it,since i am new could some one please wikify the page -- Shanbhag.rohan 08:13, 21 March 2008 (UTC)

For future reference, Shanbhag's entry is at Khillari cattle. -- Gaurav (talk) 17:40, 15 June 2008 (UTC)

Watchlists[edit]

To help this workgroup patrol existing articles for vandalism/recent changes, Ganeshbot has created the Wikipedia:WikiProject Maharashtra/Articles page. This page will be updated on a regular basis. Please do remind me if I forget. :) It contains articles that were tagged with the India banner and fall under the scope of this workgroup. Please let me know in case of any questions. Thanks, Ganeshk (talk) 11:35, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

That's great, Ganesh, thanks! How regularly are you planning on updating that page? And what's the easiest way to remind you if you forget? I'm sure that page will be enormously helpful to us. -- Gaurav (talk) 17:36, 15 June 2008 (UTC)

Appropriate to fork of a template?[edit]

On the same lines of Template:Forts in India. After all, a substantial number of forts do exist in Maharashtra alone. It would be far better than me having to go to every single fort page and adding a "see also" link to the entire list. Thoughts? - Mayuresh 18:10, 7 October 2007 (UTC)

Yeah, I think so! We could use List of forts in Maharashtra as a base. How does {{Forts in Maharashtra}} sound like to you? -- Gaurav (talk) 15:27, 15 June 2008 (UTC)
Done. Suggestions/improvements welcome, go to it! -- Gaurav (talk) 16:00, 15 June 2008 (UTC)

Infobox for forts?[edit]

How about a infobox for forts? We dont have one. For that matter, neither does wikipedia ;-) -Mayuresh 18:10, 7 October 2007 (UTC)

I think that would be awesome. I'll do it later this month, unless someone beats me to it (hint, hint). -- Gaurav (talk) 15:27, 15 June 2008 (UTC)

WP:INDIA Tagging with TinucherianBot[edit]

TinucherianBot can automatically tag articles with {{WP India}} Banner as {{WP India|class=|importance=}} to the talk page of articles without the project banner. It can also add the workgroup paramaters like "|maharashtra=yes|maharashtra-importance=" etc ,if needed. The currently supported workgroups are Kerala, Maharashtra, Andhra pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Gujarat, Bengal, Goa, Himachal Pradesh , Karnataka , Punjab,cities, Cinema, Literature, Protected Areas of India, History, Politics states, Geography,Maps,Districts and Tamil.

If you need so, you need to provide me with the Categories to run the Bot. Due to some technical issues, the Bot will not run recursively to sub-categories. The requester should kindly verify that there are NO non-related articles in the category.
You may request for the bot run on my talk page... Thanks -- TinuCherian (Wanna Talk?) - 06:05, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

Hi project members, can you go thorough the following categories of this project ( collected from Category:Maharashtra )and identify the categories which I need to run the bot ? Please make sure there are no non-related project articles in that category . Please mark Y/N with your signature. Thanks in advance -- -- TinuCherian (Wanna Talk?) - 08:50, 15 June 2008 (UTC)
Thanks, Tinucherian! I've put my suggestions in, I hope it helps. I hope the other project members will join in as well. Apart from providing input for your bot, this also gives us a quick overview of all the categories which are part of our project. -- Gaurav (talk) 12:38, 15 June 2008 (UTC)

Feedback on Pune[edit]

Hi guys,

There's been a lot of editing and rearranging going on at Pune over the last two months. It's still not as tight as I'd like it to be, but it's a whole lot cleaner than when we started. Could you pop on over and help tighten the text, find references for anything which needs referencing, and cleaning up in general? My hope is to push this page to a Wikipedia:Good articles in another month or two.

Thanks for your help! -- Gaurav (talk) 16:09, 22 August 2008 (UTC)

I would be glad to assist. --GPPande 13:08, 12 January 2009 (UTC)

Feedback at Vithoba[edit]

I soon aim to nominate Vithoba for FAC. I would like suggestions to improve the article to FA status. Also, i request some copyeditor to go through the article to polish the language, if needed.--Redtigerxyz (talk) 12:13, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

Need to Re-organize[edit]

Guys I personally feel that the main page should be reorganized so that more information can be included on the main page. I suggest we make some tabs and then add details like the contributors, the areas(i.e articles)included in the scope of this project. Please add your suggestions. Swapnils2106 (talk) 16:38, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

Hi Swapnils2106,
On the one hand, I'll like to butt in and say that I think the project page is fine as is. The list of participants should probably be moved out of the way, as it's growing long and unwieldy, and the end of the page - with the barnstars et al - should be cleaned up, but other than that ... I like how it is right now. Very to-the-point and informative.
... but on the other hand, the WikiProject isn't - I think? - really doing much together (other than using this talk page to get opinions on articles), so if you've got plans for WP:M, and think reorganizing the project page is the way to go about it - go right ahead, and all the best! If you're not sure of how it's going to come out, you could create another page (Wikipedia:WikiProject Maharashtra/Alternate layout, perhaps?), set up the alternate layout there, then get opinions from this talk page before copying that onto the main WP:M page.
... oh, and - of course - feel free to disregard all of the above and be bold!
-- Gaurav (talk) 18:26, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

Hi I kind-off agree with your views on this, there are not many people contributing to this page and the project in general. your idea of creating an alternate page seems to be superb. For the time being I have changed the layout a bit. I will certianly move the list of participants to a diffrent tab in a few days. The things which I did not like about the page was the introduction to the project the set goals and the scope. The presentation looked absolutely amatuer, and the wording was childish as well. Please check out the changes I made and let me know if you all think it was really needed. Swapnils2106 (talk) 12:44, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

P. V. Narasimha Rao[edit]

Language chauvinism[edit]

Hi All Members of Maharashtra Wiki,

I would just like to bring to the member's notice that there is a repeated vandalism by Kannada chauvinist. They are adding Kannada name references to pages of cities like Sangli, Kolhapur, Solapur, Miraj, Gadhinglaj for unnecessary reasons.

I know that some parts of these districts may have Kannada speaking population but these cities themselves are majority Marathi population.

I had also raised this issue in the talk page of Solapur a long ago.

But looks like most of the members have turned a blind eye towards this.

Requesting all members to take a note of this and do the needful.

Regards

Jay Maharashtra

GA reassessment of P. V. Narasimha Rao[edit]

I have conducted a reassessment of the above article as part of the GA Sweeps process. As it fails many aspects of the GA criteria I have de-listed it. When the issues have been fixed, it can be renominated at WP:GAN. If you disagree with the reassessment you may ask for a community reassessment at WP:GAR. You can see the concerns at Talk:P. V. Narasimha Rao/GA1. Jezhotwells (talk) 20:42, 23 January 2010 (UTC)

Unreferenced living people articles bot[edit]

User:DASHBot/Wikiprojects provides a list, updated daily, of unreferenced living people articles (BLPs) related to your project. There has been a lot of discussion recently about deleting these unreferenced articles, so it is important that these articles are referenced.

The unreferenced articles related to your project can be found at >>>Wikipedia:WikiProject Maharashtra/Unreferenced BLPs<<<

If you do not want this wikiproject to participate, please add your project name to this list.

Thank you.

Update: Wikipedia:WikiProject Maharashtra/Unreferenced BLPs has been created. This list, which is updated by User:DASHBot/Wikiprojects daily, will allow your wikiproject to quickly identify unreferenced living person articles.
There maybe no or few articles on this new Unreferenced BLPs page. To increase the overall number of articles in your project with another bot, you can sign up for User:Xenobot_Mk_V#Instructions.
If you have any questions or concerns, visit User talk:DASHBot/Wikiprojects. Okip 00:38, 28 March 2010 (UTC)

Some other city pages may be subjected to this.

Maharashtra articles have been selected for the Wikipedia 0.8 release[edit]

Version 0.8 is a collection of Wikipedia articles selected by the Wikipedia 1.0 team for offline release on USB key, DVD and mobile phone. Articles were selected based on their assessed importance and quality, then article versions (revisionIDs) were chosen for trustworthiness (freedom from vandalism) using an adaptation of the WikiTrust algorithm.

We would like to ask you to review the Maharashtra articles and revisionIDs we have chosen. Selected articles are marked with a diamond symbol (♦) to the right of each article, and this symbol links to the selected version of each article. If you believe we have included or excluded articles inappropriately, please contact us at Wikipedia talk:Version 0.8 with the details. You may wish to look at your WikiProject's articles with cleanup tags and try to improve any that need work; if you do, please give us the new revisionID at Wikipedia talk:Version 0.8. We would like to complete this consultation period by midnight UTC on Monday, October 11th.

We have greatly streamlined the process since the Version 0.7 release, so we aim to have the collection ready for distribution by the end of October, 2010. As a result, we are planning to distribute the collection much more widely, while continuing to work with groups such as One Laptop per Child and Wikipedia for Schools to extend the reach of Wikipedia worldwide. Please help us, with your WikiProject's feedback!

WikiProject cleanup listing[edit]

I have created together with Smallman12q a toolserver tool that shows a weekly-updated list of cleanup categories for WikiProjects, that can be used as a replacement for WolterBot and this WikiProject is among those that are already included (because it is a member of Category:WolterBot cleanup listing subscriptions). See the tool's wiki page, this project's listing in one big table or by categories and the index of WikiProjects. Svick (talk) 21:22, 7 November 2010 (UTC)

Call for volunteering to report bugs for VisualEditor + Universal Language Selector input: Marathi and Hindi[edit]

Hello,

While technically unicode input has been enabled in VisualEditor,It is long way to practically usable for indic languages.Since most developers would not be using Universal Language Selector input methods and would not be knowing indic languages such as Marathi and Hindi it would be defficult for them to understand problem areas.

Only few people doing effort is not enough.We need more volunteering specially indic people on english wikipedia atleast know what is Visual Editor by now.Please do take a lead to test Universale language input methods for indic languages in VE environment.Please report problems at Wikipedia:VisualEditor/Feedback.For a while please do keep aside your individual aprehensions about Visual Editor and come forward to report problems. Your lead will benefit indic wikipedias.

Comment on the WikiProject X proposal[edit]

Hello there! As you may already know, most WikiProjects here on Wikipedia struggle to stay active after they've been founded. I believe there is a lot of potential for WikiProjects to facilitate collaboration across subject areas, so I have submitted a grant proposal with the Wikimedia Foundation for the "WikiProject X" project. WikiProject X will study what makes WikiProjects succeed in retaining editors and then design a prototype WikiProject system that will recruit contributors to WikiProjects and help them run effectively. Please review the proposal here and leave feedback. If you have any questions, you can ask on the proposal page or leave a message on my talk page. Thank you for your time! (Also, sorry about the posting mistake earlier. If someone already moved my message to the talk page, feel free to remove this posting.) Harej (talk) 22:47, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

WikiProject X is live![edit]

WikiProject X icon.svg

Hello everyone!

You may have received a message from me earlier asking you to comment on my WikiProject X proposal. The good news is that WikiProject X is now live! In our first phase, we are focusing on research. At this time, we are looking for people to share their experiences with WikiProjects: good, bad, or neutral. We are also looking for WikiProjects that may be interested in trying out new tools and layouts that will make participating easier and projects easier to maintain. If you or your WikiProject are interested, check us out! Note that this is an opt-in program; no WikiProject will be required to change anything against its wishes. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!

Note: To receive additional notifications about WikiProject X on this talk page, please add this page to Wikipedia:WikiProject X/Newsletter. Otherwise, this will be the last notification sent about WikiProject X.

Dubious content: Pimpri Chinchwad article[edit]

Dear editors, I believe that the following content violates wikipedia policy on advertising. Moreover, the editor does not provide valid verifiable references for the entry. Please refer to: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:What_Wikipedia_is_not#Wikipedia_is_not_a_soapbox_or_means_of_promotion

"Many builders like P3 Developers, Rama Builders, Ellora Builders, Pharande Spaces, Privia Group have been involved in making top end projects in this Industrial Belt of Pune."

I have marked it as dubious and have requested comments. This content has previosuly been removed by other editors, although it gets reentered. I do not know how to proceed with this. Please help. Best, Berlindian (talk) 16:43, 12 April 2018 (UTC)
