Yoga in the United StatesEdit

Hello, Chiswick Chap. You may have noticed that Yoga in the United States is not displaying the good article icon, which should have been automatically added due to the passing of the article at Talk:Yoga in the United States/GA1. I don't know why this is the case, but I suspect it may have something to do with the article renaming that occurred during the review. I have posted a question about this here, but it has been ignored so far. A possible solution, if no one suggests anything better, might be for you to nominate the article again. I would then pass it, and the GA icon should then be added automatically. Freeknowledgecreator (talk) 00:09, 28 October 2019 (UTC)

The bot is easily confused. I've put the icon on the page manually. Chiswick Chap (talk) 07:49, 28 October 2019 (UTC)
OK, thank you. That resolves the matter. Freeknowledgecreator (talk) 08:55, 28 October 2019 (UTC)

Username?Edit

unit 108 is me incorporated. unit108.com is me as a photographer and unit108.yoga is me as a yoga business. My US name is Serge Cashman, for whatever it's worth. My Russian and Israeli names are quite different. Do I still need to rename my account? The edits on Indra Devi are mostly true to Goldberg's book and correspond to Russian interviews and articles. The only thing she is incorrect about is stating that Eugenia and her mother Alexandra were noblewomen. Alexandra's father was (Indra's grandfather) but he didn't allow them to inherit the title. I would need to do a research to find out where Indra Devi said that, but it's pretty clear she never claimed to have the title (page 9 of "Forever Young, Forever Healthy") — Preceding unsigned comment added by Unit108yoga (talkcontribs) 03:37, 13 November 2019 (UTC)

Yes, it would be wise and according to policy to change the username. On edits, the requirement is to cite reliable sources, as I seem to have to keep on repeating: it's the core message --- we go by sources, not by what anyone thinks or believes or knows is true. Chiswick Chap (talk) 09:39, 13 November 2019 (UTC)

Plus - I told you I don't know how Wikipedia works, so no point shaming me. I knew most things about Indra Devi prior to Goldberg's book. Here's an interview with her for Russian TV from 1989 (republished in 2009) that gives a bunch of details Goldberg doesn't know about, because she doesn't speak Russian, obviously. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BEjEM4VMNoY . How do I include that as a source? It's obviously more reliable than a book some American wrote years after her death. 0:28 is about Komisarjevsky studio, for instance. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Unit108yoga (talkcontribs) 04:45, 13 November 2019 (UTC)

I have no idea what shaming anyone would mean, have not tried to shame you, and have no intention of trying. I am just attempting to get things done properly, which means, again, citing reliable sources. The repeated claims that you don't know the mechanisms do not get you very far: if you want to contribute, learn the basics: they are few, and will be enough to do something useful. Knowing things is of no use on Wikipedia because personal knowledge cannot be verified, and as I keep on saying, verifiability is what it's about. I explained (and have now demonstrated many times in the article) how to cite sources. YouTube is very doubtful as a source, and probably not usable, I'm afraid. We can cite established newspapers, books, and academic journals. Chiswick Chap (talk) 09:39, 13 November 2019 (UTC)
