Update what??? I didn't get you. Explain !! Dey subrata (talk) 18:12, 8 January 2020 (UTC)


Please enable wP:TWINKLE and Wikipedia:Tools/Navigation popups, they are very helpful. Also Fyi User:DiplomatTesterMan--DBigXray 19:35, 10 January 2020 (UTC)

Twinkle was enabled before, Nav.Popups I just did now. Dey subrata (talk) 20:47, 10 January 2020 (UTC)
Same here, TW enabled before and Navigation popups just now. I had to disable "Reference Tooltips" which I had enabled since it says - "does not work if "Navigation popups" is enabled above". DTM (talk) 05:15, 11 January 2020 (UTC)
This is a really nice gadget too - xTools (XTools: dynamically show statistics about a page's history under the page heading) under Appearance. DTM (talk) 11:15, 11 January 2020 (UTC)
Have that before. Dey subrata (talk) 15:17, 13 January 2020 (UTC)

Help needed to expandEdit

@Dey subrata: Please see if you can help to expland and format this - Shaheen Bagh protests DTM (talk) 07:01, 13 January 2020 (UTC)

@DBigXray: pinging DBX, you have worked on the CAA protest article a lot so bringing your attention to this article too. DTM (talk) 07:30, 13 January 2020 (UTC)
Sure DiplomatTesterMan, I was just going to propose such article but, its nice to see you already created it. As you are a photgraph, it will be nice if you bring out the different kind of protest going on in Shaheen Bagh, like reading and preaching different holy books together by different people of different religion sitting together, writing down Hum Dekhenge in paper boats, India gate miniatue, and many more. Dey subrata (talk) 14:25, 13 January 2020 (UTC)
DiplomatTesterMan and DBigXray, I think the Shaheen Bagh protest need a separate and summarised sub-section under "Delhi" section in the "Protest" heading. Dey subrata (talk) 15:16, 13 January 2020 (UTC)
Yes, a sub-section in the main protest article makes sense. And you said "as you are a photographer"... I technically take really bad photographs and I havent adjusted to my smartphone as yet. Pushing it, amatuer photography maybe. (Mostly, the photos support the article, not the other way round). DTM (talk) 15:18, 14 January 2020 (UTC)

Congrats DTM, Your article on Shaheen Bagh was talked about briefly in NDTV India channel today at 7 PM. As for photography, You have been taking really good pics. Other than changing the Camera aspect ratio to 4:3. I will suggest you to briefly take a look at the corners of the frame and see if something is photobombing the pic, if something is coming in the frame, consider shifting your position to fix it. Finally take as many pics as possible, Assume that 90% pics will be bad. And discard the bad ones when you are back home. --DBigXray 13:51, 16 January 2020 (UTC)

DiplomatTesterMan Does not matter bad or good, I am also adding few pics to show case different kind of protest, which is presently missing from the article. And I ahve noticed some users are trying their best to delete your pics from wikipedia using different laws, please read the copyright laws, it will help you to reply them in the deletion discussion. Dey subrata (talk) 14:14, 16 January 2020 (UTC)
DBX, Oh wow, how many seconds a mention was it? 2 sec....5sec.....10 plus?
DS, Looking forward seeing the photographs! And regarding the deletion, yes I did notice that too. Till now I haven't really replied to anyone once they want to delete a photograph. Most of the ones deleted this time were deleted for being "derivative" or "adequate permission" not shown and the logic of that sounds correct. This related to when I was taking close-up of posters. However, many of the photographs remain. But yes, I should read all the guidelines, policies and laws related to the same properly. DTM (talk) 07:46, 17 January 2020 (UTC)
DiplomatTesterMan, sorry I've removed some pics from the article, added three picture, hope there is no issue. I may add 1 or 2 more while adding new sections. Dey subrata (talk) 07:31, 18 January 2020 (UTC)
Dey subrata, no worries or issues at all. It is always nicer when pictures come from more than one source. Every person would have there own style and way of capturing what they think is important; this adds depth to the article. And by the way, the article is within the DYK period in case you want to nominate it. DTM (talk) 08:51, 18 January 2020 (UTC)
And that tank pic is really nice. I didn't know the poem was Hum Dekhenge. Adds more meaning knowing that. DTM (talk) 08:54, 18 January 2020 (UTC)
DiplomatTesterMan, good idea, better you must do it, after all you created the article. Dey subrata (talk) 08:56, 18 January 2020 (UTC)
DiplomatTesterMan, [1] this is one of the most popular mobile photography tutorial in sessions. this one is a good free tutorial on Landscape and travel photography. cheers. DBigXray 16:12, 20 January 2020 (UTC)
DiplomatTesterMan, 5 second. They said the shaheen bagh protest have gained prominence and even a Wikipedia page for shaheen bagh protest have come up DBigXray 23:55, 18 January 2020 (UTC)
DBigXray Ok, that sounds like a reasonable mention. Lucky NDTV was on at the time! I'm sure in the future these news channels would have a better system for retrieving their video content. And after you had mentioned this to me and the banner at the protest I did a google search - "The agitation has now caught people's imagination - it has its own Wikipedia page". (India Today) and on typing in twitter the keywords "shaheen bagh wikipedia" quite a few have shared it! Not bad! DTM (talk) 07:18, 21 January 2020 (UTC)
DiplomatTesterMan, and Dey, check out this video. It was the Featured video on the main page of commons today [2] We have pics some videos will be cool. DBigXray 21:40, 22 January 2020 (UTC)
DBigXray Good suggestion, I have to find time for this if I go there. I have one or two but not of good quality, just casually taken. I am more into taking pics. But I will try. DTM if you go you can do it but please mind that, video must not capture anything which may create controversy. ;) :p Dey subrata (talk) 21:46, 22 January 2020 (UTC)
Dey subrata, I wonder what can cause controversy. Anything that happens there should be fine to record in video. DBigXray 22:03, 22 January 2020 (UTC)
DBigXray Well, parts of video, segemted to create controvies in past and going on in present also. Recent case Ravish Kumar not questioning the economic crisis during Congress. Dey subrata (talk) 22:08, 22 January 2020 (UTC)
DBigXray, yes, a video is a good idea. Always a good idea. Just need to take out the time. Maybe start with something simple that doesn't take up too much time. DTM (talk) 10:41, 23 January 2020 (UTC)

Hi Dey subrata, you probably already know this but just in case, the Twinkle gadget makes many tasks easier. I use use for reverting vandalism and leaving talk page notices/warning but it can also be used for nominating articles for Prod, CSD or AFD. S0091 (talk) 23:03, 18 January 2020 (UTC)

Thank S0091, yes already did that, it a very useful tool indeed. i have open the AfD discussion, would like to have your comment if possible. Dey subrata (talk) 03:35, 19 January 2020 (UTC)
Hi Dey subrata, I have added my comments to the AfD discussion. This is actually my first time participating at AfD so took my best shot at it. :) S0091 (talk) 17:56, 20 January 2020 (UTC)
S0091 Well you have explained the reasons why the article fails the WP:SIGCOV/WP:ANYBIO which I had explained before during the WP:PROD at the talk page of the article. Thanks for the comment. Dey subrata (talk) 20:52, 20 January 2020 (UTC)
