I love Wikipedia and have been editing for years; for nearly a decade, I edited without logging in unless making a particular edit required me to do so. I'm particularly interested in food issues, including local artisanal foods, food writers, and food history, but on a regular basis some other topic sets off an edit binge.

I have an alt account User:TrainerValereee which I created so I could demonstrate editing without all the extra buttons.

If editors continue to revert to their preferred version they are likely to be blocked from editing Wikipedia. This isn't done to punish an editor, but to prevent the disruption caused by edit warring. In particular, editors should be aware of the three-revert rule, which says that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Edit warring on Wikipedia is not acceptable in any amount, and violating the three-revert rule is very likely to lead to a block.

Additional text


Reliable Indian sources from User:Cesdeva (copied from an AfD post for Bibhusita Das) In case you are still interested: the two big news RS in India are 'The Times of India' (TOI) (except for entertainment coverage, which is for-pay spam per WBG) and The Hindu. After that you have the New Indian Express, The Economic Times, The Telegraph and the Hindustan Times. There are some decent regionals such as the Deccan Chronicle etc. I'd put Firstpost and The Business Standard on the list too, but some may not agree.

A precious from Gerda Arendt:

tempestry project

Thank you for quality articles, beginning with Valerie Taylor (novelist) in 2006, then Macroom Oatmeal, Charlotte Reeve Conover and Virginia Weiffenbach Kettering, for reviewing articles for creation and good articles, for encouraging a leaving user, for your tempestry project, for "relax, have a drink bubble bath", - Val, you are an awesome Wikipedian!

Another cute kitten: Here is a kitten for your invaluable help!

P.S. So you are not a vegan. Now I see my misinterpretation, which was not a language issue. I could have delved into your page a bit more. I am a perfectionist but still not perfect ;-) Vikom talk 14:57, 13 April 2019 (UTC)
