Question edit

In recent days, Wikipedia has come in conflict with important figures from the Hindu-Nationalist sections of Indian population, who wield a significant influence on the incumbent Government of India.[1][2][3] Tech-journalists have documented moves seeking to intimidate online platforms into submission.[4] Twitter found itself in a similar soup and their officials were harassed by GOI[5][6], leading some to resign.[7] Press-freedom has deteriorated in an unprecedented manner and dissent is now sedition.[8][9]

Do you think that my characterization of the situation is fair? If so, do you have anything to say on how the shifting-away of India from a meaningful democracy[10][11][12] might hamper your discharge of duties? TrangaBellam (talk) 14:49, 6 July 2021 (UTC)Reply

To be honest, I am not well-versed about the functions you are going to perform, upon a successful election. I am yet to read everything but the application does not seem to be for some kind of chief-editor post.
I still feel that my question is relevant. TrangaBellam (talk) 16:46, 6 July 2021 (UTC)Reply

Reply to User:TrangaBellam edit

Thank you, @TrangaBellam: for your question which I have just read. I would be reading your references and get back to you with a specific answer to your queries. In the meantime, you can access info about what the Board does concisely here and here. I would like to point out, in case you hadn't noticed so far, the job of daily governance and responding to changes in a country's policy are that of the Wikimedia Foundation Staff under the leadership of the CEO, not the Board of Trustees which I am standing for. In the interim, till I get back to you with an answer, stay safe, and happy editing. :) AshLin (talk) 05:45, 7 July 2021 (UTC)Reply

Did you get time? TrangaBellam (talk) 13:45, 18 July 2021 (UTC)Reply
Hi, @TrangaBellam:, the articles that you linked support your view about erosion of democratic values and rise in intolerance in India. It is true that right-wing editors in India are edit-warring to push their point of view over others, with this in some cases spilling on to doxxing fellow editors, threats of violence and stalking. Their point of view and acts are also supported by functionaries of the ruling party. Since the duties of a Board of Trustee are supervisory of WMF and mainly concerned with long term policy, responding to the legal connotations in India of the recent Information Technology (Intermediary Guidelines and Digital Media Ethics Code) Rules, 2021 (2021 Rules) remains that of WMF. On the other hand, should I be elected and find myself in conflict with Indian law or put in such position of having to compromise my values, I will prefer to resign. I hope this answers your question. AshLin (talk) 03:39, 19 July 2021 (UTC)Reply

BIBFRAME edit

Thanks for flagging that article. I was actually responding on the talk page but edit-conflicted with your removal. One reason that I believed this was a case of reverse copying from Wikipedia was that I looked at some other entries, and our articles on Carla Hayden, Charles Ammi Cutter, Ex Libris Group, Information science, and Knowledge all contained text that is duplicated at [1]. I found it implausible that all of those would have been copied from that website. That, plus they've been apparently updating the page throughout the years without changing the "2015" in the URL. DanCherek (talk) 02:10, 27 August 2021 (UTC)Reply

Thank you @DanCherek:. Its so nice to find a case where the possible copyvio is by the website and not by the Wikipedian. I was quite taken aback because the author's other work doesn't indicate a likelihood of copyvio. Ashwin Baindur (User:AshLin) (talk) 02:16, 27 August 2021 (UTC)Reply

Message by Moitranaak edit

Hullo, Shri Baindur I am reproducing your remarks on my talk page: I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Please sign your messages on talk pages using four tildes (Moitraanak (talk) 12:10, 17 September 2021 (UTC)); this will automatically insert your username and the date. If you need help, check out Wikipedia:Questions, ask me on my talk page, or ask your question on this page and then place {{Help me}} before the question. Again, welcome! AshLin (talk) 16:06, 6 July 2020 (UTC)Reply

It appears you haven't been welcomed so you aren't quite up to the mark regarding wikipedia methods and practices. Hope this helps. AshLin (talk) 16:06, 6 July 2020 (UTC) PS - the legacy mail was crowding it up and seeing that you probably may not be aware how to archive your talk, I have taken the liberty to move the old talk posts to this archive. Should you not prefer that to happen you can revert this through the page history. I'm a services veteran from India too. Let me know if you need help of any kind. AshLin (talk) 16:29, 6 July 2020 (UTC)

I became a Wikipedia editor in 2007 under a different name, but switched to my current ID in 2014. I think I have made>1,000 edits using my current ID. My welcome tab is live, so please take it easy. For a start, stop being so annoyingly condescending. I have stopped using my customised green signature and am back with the standard four tildes. Have a great day.

Message from Global Aspiration edit

Thank you for working on my article, I was actually attempting to withdraw the submission as advised by Dave notMD, as I don't have time to rework it just at the moment. The United Aspiration concept is developing rapidly and I am involved in the think tank. Much of the article seems to have now been deleted, I am unsure whether this means that you have decided that was not suitable, your messages did not imply that it was quite that bad. A couple of queries that you may be able to assist with, I am unclear whether I am allowed hyperlinks, if not I presume that I need to embed an explanation into my article. Secondly I had hoped to include a graph from some published research, but I was not sure if it is permitted. Global Aspiration (talk) 15:00, 28 August 2021 (UTC)Reply

Hi @Global Aspiration:, unwittingly, you are likely to be in violation of Wikipedia policies, such as Conflict of Interest and No Original Research. Please read these because it appears I recommend that you halt editing this article until you learn the practices and editing culture of Wikipedia, because while you may have domain knowledge about the topic and mean well, you are at present uninformed about the rules and policies and also about what comprises a good encyclopedic article, much less how to write one. Writing a Wikipedia article is considered a feat to be attempted once you have got your basics right, not from your very first edit onward. I recommend reading all the links in the welcome message and making a number of edits on other articles.
As regards Draft:Ecological Overshoot, I will keep gradually improving it so that reaches a state which is acceptable. Once you have remedied this issue and progress beyond your newbie status, you may like to progress it by adding one referenced fact at a time, keeping the structure in mind.
As regards your queries, hyperlinks are not permitted in the main text, you can use them by putting them in citations and notes instead. Only wikilinking is encouraged in the main article text as a matter of style.
The graph to be included needs to licensed in its original source under a license that is acceptable to Wikimedia Commons, that is CC-BY, CC-BY-SA or Public Domain. Alternately, it needs to be your own work which you upload to Wikimedia Commons. Please see this page: guidance about Wikimedia Commons
I know much of this sounds daunting at first because the so many issues involved, but I recommend learning the basics incrementally and increasing your editing skill and domain knowledge over time. Happy editing, 07:38, 30 August 2021 (UTC)

I have put in yet another name change request, although 'global aspiration' is not an organisation or a company it may well be one day soon. Your talk page seems different to the last time I accessed it, the big yellow box was not there last time. Easier to use today. Global Aspiration (talk) 14:02, 31 August 2021 (UTC)Reply

My Ecological Overshoot article looks much improved thank you. Your talk page seems easier to use today, the big yellow 'click here' box did not appear the last time I visited this page. The 'united aspiration' which appears at the end of the article can be described more simply as follows: Our Declaration of Human Rights and our political and models do not provide any encouragement to remain within the ecological boundaries of our locality. It has been suggested that we need to agree a global Aspiration to encourage global communities to limit their enterprise within their ecological boundaries.

September 2021 Guild of Copy Editors newsletter edit

Guild of Copy Editors September 2021 Newsletter

Hello and welcome to the September GOCE newsletter, a brief update of Guild activities since June 2021.

                 Current and upcoming events

September Drive: Our current backlog-elimination drive is open until 23:59 on 30 September (UTC) and is open to all copy editors. Sign up today!

Drive and Blitz reports

June Blitz: From 20 to 26 June, 6 participating editors claimed 16 copy edits, focusing on requests and articles tagged in March and April. Final results, including barnstars awarded, are available here.

July Drive: Almost 575,000 words of articles were copy edited for this event. Of the 24 people who signed up, 18 copyedited at least one article. Final results and awards are listed here.

August Blitz: From 15 to 21 August, we copy edited articles tagged in April and May 2021 and requests. 9 participating editors completed 17 copy edits on the blitz. Final results, including barnstars awarded, are available here.

Other news

June election: Jonesey95 was chosen to continue as lead coordinator, assisted by Dhtwiki, Tenryuu, and Miniapolis.

New maintenance template added to our project scope: After a short discussion in June, we added {{cleanup tense}} to the list of maintenance templates that adds articles to the Guild's copy editing backlog categories. This change added 198 articles, spread over 97 months of backlog, to our queue. We processed all of those articles except for those from the three or four most recent months during the July backlog elimination drive (Here's a link to a "tense" discussion during the drive).

Progress report: As of 18:26, 24 September 2021 (UTC), GOCE copyeditors have processed 468 requests since 1 January and there were 60 requests awaiting completion on the Requests page. The backlog of articles tagged for copy-editing stood at 433 (see monthly progress graph above).

Thank you all again for your participation; we wouldn't be able to achieve what we have without you! Cheers from your GOCE coordinators Jonesey95, Dhtwiki, Tenryuu, and Miniapolis.

Proposed deletion of Chetan Joshi (writer) edit

Notice

The article Chetan Joshi (writer) has been proposed for deletion because it appears to have no references. Under Wikipedia policy, this biography of a living person will be deleted after seven days unless it has at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp/dated}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within seven days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one.

Re. Tag & Assess edit

Hi, Saw your msg only now. Tag&Assess India was long overdue..thks for initiating it. Was trying to participate but neither of the scripts, Rater.js or the yuvipanda tool, are getting activated for me. Yuvipand script was already there from the 2012 campaign. Any idea why this would be happening? --Sesamevoila (talk) 08:13, 7 October 2021 (UTC)Reply

December 2021 GOCE Newsletter edit

Guild of Copy Editors December 2021 Newsletter

Hello and welcome to the December GOCE newsletter, a brief update of Guild activities since September 2021.

                 Current and upcoming events

Election time: Our end-of-year election of coordinators opened for nominations on 1 December and will close on 15 December at 23:59 (UTC). Voting opens at 00:01 the following day and will continue until 31 December at 23:59, just before "Auld Lang Syne". Coordinators normally serve a six-month term and are elected on an approval basis. Self-nominations are welcome. If you've thought of helping out at the Guild, or know of another editor who would make a good coordinator, please consider standing for election or nominating them here.

December Blitz: We have scheduled a week-long copy-editing blitz for 12 to 18 December. Sign up now!

Drive and Blitz reports

September Drive: Almost 400,000 words of articles were copy edited for this event. Of the 27 people who signed up, 21 copyedited at least one article. Final results and awards are listed here.

October Blitz: From 17 to 23 October, we copy edited articles tagged in May and June 2021 and requests. 8 participating editors completed 26 copy edits on the blitz. Final results, including barnstars awarded, are available here.

November Drive: Over 350,000 words of articles were copy edited for this event. Of the 21 people who signed up, 14 copyedited at least one article. Final results and awards are listed here.

Other news

It is with great sadness that we report the death on 19 November of Twofingered Typist, who was active with the Guild almost daily for the past several years. His contributions long exceeded the thresholds for the Guild's highest awards, and he had a hand in innumerable good and featured article promotions as a willing collaborator. Twofingered Typist also served as a Guild coordinator from July 2019 to June 2021. He is sorely missed by the Wikipedia community.

Progress report: As of 30 November, GOCE copyeditors have completed 619 requests in 2021 and there were 51 requests awaiting completion on the Requests page. The backlog stood at 946 articles tagged for copy-editing (see monthly progress graph above).

Thank you all again for your participation; we wouldn't be able to achieve what we have without you! Cheers from your GOCE coordinators Jonesey95, Dhtwiki, Tenryuu, and Miniapolis.

Survey about History on Wikipedia edit

I am Petros Apostolopoulos, a Ph.D. candidate in Public History at North Carolina State University. My Ph.D. project examines how historical knowledge is produced on Wikipedia. If you are interested in participating in my research study by offering your own experience of writing about history on Wikipedia, you can click on this link https://ncsu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_9z4wmR1cIp0qBH8. There are minimal risks involved in this research.

WP:AFC Helper News edit

Hello! I wanted to drop a quick note for all of our AFC participants; nothing huge and fancy like a newsletter, but a few points of interest.

  • AFCH will now show live previews of the comment to be left on a decline.
  • The template {{db-afc-move}} has been created - this template is similar to {{db-move}} when there is a redirect in the way of an acceptance, but specifically tells the patrolling admin to let you (the draft reviewer) take care of the actual move.

Short and sweet, but there's always more to discuss at WT:AFC. Stop on by, maybe review a draft on the way? Whether you're one of our top reviewers, or haven't reviewed in a while, I want to thank you for helping out in the past and in the future.

Board election edit

So, today is the deadline for applying for the 2022 WMF Board elections. I voted for you in the 2021 election, and I was wondering if you might consider running again? I very much feel that it would be really helpful to have on the Board a voice as community-oriented as yours. --Yair rand (talk) 08:34, 16 May 2022 (UTC)Reply

@Yair rand: Thank you very much for your voice of support. I really appreciate it. Since then, adverse health issues have come into my life, so I respectfully and regretfully have to decline. Wishing you a very editing life, :) Ashwin Baindur (User:AshLin) (talk) 06:33, 17 May 2022 (UTC)Reply
