Reverted at photography and the lawEdit

You've been adding a ton of stuff, mostly unsourced. This is no way to improve an article. I can put a "citation needed" tag on everything you assert, but it would be better if you'd just put in stuff from sources, and cite those sources. Work on sourcing all the stuff you added before, before expanding to more unsourced stuff. Dicklyon (talk) 04:37, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

ASBO CriticismEdit

You added a lot of good points. Unfortunately, nearly all of your sources are in the incorrect format—simply putting a person or organization name with a year is not enough. That is a shorthand inline citation format for books/papers but still requiring full citation in the footnotes or a bibliography. It is also redundant here since Wikipedia generates links to the full citation in the <references/> section when <ref> tags are used properly. Also, when using region-specific jargon, please clarify for those unfamiliar with the term (e.g. Sin Bin—I assumed you were referring to Sin Bin, but that doesn't make sense in the context of your sentence). Lastly, here's a good reference on citation templates (they're a huge timesaver) that I have bookmarked and frequently refer to when I'm adding references.--Subversive Sound (talk) 15:31, 9 November 2009 (UTC)


I've reverted your unexplained edit to Restorative justice whereby all use of the word restitution was changed to compensation. A Sniper (talk) 23:47, 31 January 2009 (UTC)

Your messageEdit

Thanks for that: I replied on my page. Do I guess you're a second year student? Send me an email if you like. I'd be interested on your opinion of what we could do with these pages. Wikidea 18:50, 12 April 2009 (UTC)

WP:Hornbook -- a new law-related task force for the J.D. curriculumEdit

Hi Arpitt,

I'm asking Wikipedians who are interested in United States legal articles to take a look at WP:Hornbook, the new "JD curriculum task force".

Our mission is to assimilate into Wikipedia all the insights of an American law school education, by reducing hornbooks to footnotes.

  • Over the course of a semester, each subpage will shift its focus to track the unfolding curriculum(s) for classes using that casebook around the country.
  • It will also feature an extensive, hyperlinked "index" or "outline" to that casebook, pointing to pages, headers, or {{anchors}} in Wikipedia (example).
  • Individual law schools can freely adapt our casebook outlines to the idiosyncratic curriculum devised by each individual professor.
  • I'm encouraging law students around the country to create local chapters of the club I'm starting at my own law school, "Student WP:Hornbook Editors". Using WP:Hornbook as our headquarters, we're hoping to create a study group so inclusive that nobody will dare not join.

What you can do now:

1. Add WP:Hornbook to your watchlist, {{User Hornbook}} to your userpage, and ~~~~ to Wikipedia:Hornbook/participants.
2. If you're a law student,
(You don't have to start the club, or even be involved in it; just help direct me to someone who might.)
3. Introduce yourself to me. Law editors on Wikipedia are a scarce commodity. Do knock on my talk page if there's an article you'd like help on.

Peer Review NeededEdit

Hi, I have created an article, The Lokpal Bill, 2011. I need your help for getting it reviewed.
