Another DYK! Congrats DBX and thanks for the help with this one too! :) DiplomatTesterMan (talk) 12:04, 14 March 2019 (UTC)
Indeed, congrats to you too for another successful DYK. It is interesting to know that despite me being more experienced, both of us started our DYK journey together, and quite successfully so far. --DBigXray 13:19, 14 March 2019 (UTC)
Thanks and yes, I had noticed that you had only started out with DYKs very recently. But you also work on ITNs and already have quite a few!
Just one question. When you have time... see this old edit of mine on The Spy Chronicles and tell me if you think I should have left it on the page or not. So what do you think? Should I restore it or leave it? DiplomatTesterMan (talk) 22:38, 14 March 2019 (UTC)
Actually, you don't need to answer this. My mistake. No WP:CANVASS... So I have asked the same question on the talk page Talk:The Spy Chronicles#Query / doubt. That is the correct location. DiplomatTesterMan (talk) 00:04, 15 March 2019 (UTC)
DiplomatTesterMan Asking an opinion is not WP:CANVASS, this is not AfD or RfC or ANI etc. Yes, I do have ITNs but they came later than the DYKs. --DBigXray 06:11, 15 March 2019 (UTC)
Noted. Thanks. (And good job with the ITNs too) DiplomatTesterMan (talk) 09:00, 15 March 2019 (UTC)

I've opened a discussion on WP:IN regarding deletion of Indian govt sourced content on geographic location that has been deleted by a user on multiple Indian state articles here. Would you kindly give your inputs in that matter. - Fylindfotberserk (talk) 13:07, 19 March 2019 (UTC)

ITN statisticsEdit

Hi, I just saw your note at ITNC. We don't have a page for ITN statistics that I know of. The probable reason is that the articles for famous individuals are being heavily viewed anyway through Google searches, and linked via news sites and social media. Relatively fewer views are generated from clicking though ITN. However, for lesser known individuals RD can add a few tens of thousands of hits. Stephen 21:54, 20 March 2019 (UTC)

Stephen Thanks a lot for your kind reply on my question. I now understand why the stats page dont exist, I really wasn't sure if there wasn;t one, so I thought better to ask. regards. Wishing you a colourful and Happy Holi--DBigXray 05:44, 21 March 2019 (UTC)
