"Serial" in the context of Pakistani television[edit]

Is anyone here familiar with Pakistani television and can explain to me what "serial" or "drama serial" means in the Pakistani television context? From reading various sources I'm left confused, as some make it seem as they are either drama TV series, telenovela series or a limited 1-season series. Pakistani dramas doesn't help nor does Miniseries. Just to give some background - in the UK, "serial" means a short (6 or so episode) series, similar to the US "miniseries". The Hum Awards which give a Hum Award for Best Drama Serial says in the lead Best Drama Serial is considered the most important of the Hum Awards, as it represents all the directing, acting, music, writing, and other efforts put forth into a drama. They also have awards for sitcom, soap and telefilm, which either means Hun have no "regular" non-sitcom TV series on their network, or that "serial" in Pakistani television means "TV series" in western television. Thanks in advance. --Gonnym (talk) 09:35, 8 September 2018 (UTC)

Page creations by User:Verifications[edit]

Verifications has been blocked for WP:SOCK and WP:EVADE per User talk:GeneralizationsAreBad#Possible block evasion. Before being blocked, the account was used to create a number of articles/drafts related to Pakastani films/actors such as Licence (1976 film), Lalay Di Jan, Majhu, Gujjar Badshah, Draft:Naghma, Draft:License (1976 film), etc. These probably can be deleted per WP:G5 unless anyone thinks there's anything worth keeping and which might be further developed as an article. -- Marchjuly (talk) 05:25, 11 September 2018 (UTC)

AfD notification[edit]

An AfD discussion at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Universal Insurance company Limited (2nd nomination) may be of interest to participants in this project. This is supposedly a decent-sized Pakistani company, but the very vague name and bad sourcing makes it impossible for me to be certain of anything. Can an editor with more local knowledge comment? power~enwiki (π, ν) 03:34, 24 September 2018 (UTC)

Page move proposal[edit]

It has been proposed that Greco-Buddhist art should be renamed and moved to Gandhara art. See Talk:Greco-Buddhist art#Requested move 4 October 2018. Capitals00 (talk) 07:19, 7 October 2018 (UTC)

Nizamani[edit]

If anyone fancies weighing in at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Nizamani (2nd nomination) then it might be helpful. It suffered from low participation when someone else nominated it some time ago, and the same seems to be happening now that I have nominated it. I've got the feeling that this project is not terribly active but hopefully someone will see this. - Sitush (talk) 03:08, 18 October 2018 (UTC)

Kashmir Day - India's request denied to cancel Kashmir Solidarity Day by British Parliament - Section Reverted[edit]

I am new to Wikipedia and require guidance from this group.

I have recently added a section on India's request being denied by British parliament to cancel Kashmir Day event. This section has been reverted by user which i presume is biased towards this subject. Please advise on how to solve this issue.

CAC/PAC JF-17 Thunder‎[edit]

CAC/PAC JF-17 Thunder (edit | talk | history | links | watch | logs) was recently fully protected because of POV pushing an edit warring. The fight continues in the form of edit requests on the talk page. I am completely ignorant about anything having to do with the military of Pakistan and India other than hoping that they don't nuke each other, so I would really appreciate it if someone else would look at the page and evaluate the edit requests. Thanks! --Guy Macon (talk) 15:08, 16 March 2019 (UTC)

Sarwan Ali Palijo[edit]

Has anyone from this WikiProject ever heard of this actor? Any reason to believe he meets WP:NACTOR or WP:GNG? The article appears to have been created by a new editor or at least someone not very familiar with Wikipedia and it wasn't submitted for review via WP:AFC. It's unsourced so I was going to prod it for deletion, but I'd figured I'd ask about it here first. -- Marchjuly (talk) 02:00, 2 April 2019 (UTC)

A new newsletter directory is out![edit]

A new Newsletter directory has been created to replace the old, out-of-date one. If your WikiProject and its taskforces have newsletters (even inactive ones), or if you know of a missing newsletter (including from sister projects like WikiSpecies), please include it in the directory! The template can be a bit tricky, so if you need help, just post the newsletter on the template's talk page and someone will add it for you.

Request for information on WP1.0 web tool[edit]

Hello and greetings from the maintainers of the WP 1.0 Bot! As you may or may not know, we are currently involved in an overhaul of the bot, in order to make it more modern and maintainable. As part of this process, we will be rewriting the web tool that is part of the project. You might have noticed this tool if you click through the links on the project assessment summary tables.

We'd like to collect information on how the current tool is used by....you! How do you yourself and the other maintainers of your project use the web tool? Which of its features do you need? How frequently do you use these features? And what features is the tool missing that would be useful to you? We have collected all of these questions at this Google form where you can leave your response. Walkerma (talk) 04:24, 27 October 2019 (UTC)
