  Hello. It appears that you have been canvassing—leaving messages on others' talk pages to notify them of an ongoing community decision, debate, or vote—in order to influence Talk:K. Balachander. While friendly notices are allowed, they should be limited and nonpartisan in distribution and should reflect a neutral point of view. Please do not post notices which are indiscriminately cross-posted, which espouse a certain point of view or side of a debate, or which are selectively sent only to those who are believed to hold the same opinion as you. Remember to respect Wikipedia's principle of consensus-building by allowing decisions to reflect the prevailing opinion among the community at large.

As per our discussion at Wikipedia_talk:Noticeboard_for_India-related_topics#Support_inclusion. Sitush (talk) 12:37, 3 January 2012 (UTC)

And your message isn't even correct. No one is suggesting that we will remove "non-notable spouse's and children's and parents' information, previous occupation, lived in places, non-notability related educational qualification". Yes, we may remove the names of non-notable relatives (that falls under WP:BLPPRIVACY), but not their existence, or the other things you listed. If that's what you think is benig proposed, you're misunderstanding the point that caste is "special". WP:BLP already sets special standards for ethnicity and religion, and nothing that WT:INDIA decides can possibly ovverride that. The only question is whether or not caste falls under those special provisions (and thus requires notability and self-declaration) or whether it simply falls under more general WP:BLP provisions (and thus must just be well-sourced). Your message appears to be a scare tactic designed to make people oppose something that was never actually proposed. Qwyrxian (talk) 01:05, 4 January 2012 (UTC)
I didn't want to labour the point but, well, what the heck. There is what I would hope is a typo in the message, where it says "by few editors" but I think was intended to say "by a few editors". That single letter makes a huge difference to the meaning. I make typos like that all the time, but it is a very good example of why keeping notifications short and sweet is A Good Thing. - Sitush (talk) 01:12, 4 January 2012 (UTC)
@Qwyrxian - Well i myself suggested that "non-notable spouse's and children's and....." be removed just on the same reasons of being non-notability related, privacy, etc. And ofcourse on talk-pages i did not say that they will also be removed just now. I said they "will also be removed after discussions". I HAVE heard of that Consensus policy. The policy is good for problem solving. But i feel that consensus should be taken on a much wider range and should involve people who are related to it. Long back i suppose there was some discussion on how non-Indian editors are ditched (as per them) or interfere extensively (as per Indian editors) in India-related articles. I dont mind non-Indians contributing in articles as well as the discussions. But it is not wise to draw consensus from a discussion which has majority of non-Indians. Thats why article name change issues of Ganga and Gandhi always keep rising again and again. Non-Indian editors will never get the right feel of what caste is & what it does in a society by just reading or researching about it. Hence the scare-tactic msg on talk-pages to invite Indian editors. (Although it also seems to not work for my intended purpose but has only Sitush's attraction.) Didnt you people ever wonder if we have only 5-10 Indian editors? Why dont they discuss things on India Portal? What keeps them away? -Animeshkulkarni (talk) 12:18, 4 January 2012 (UTC)
There were a lot more than 5-10 people at the recent Mumbai Wikiconference, and I know of at least 20 who told me that they could not get to it because it would entail 30+ plus hours train journeys within the country, ie: they live there but are too distant from Mumbai. - Sitush (talk) 12:35, 4 January 2012 (UTC)
So why dont they discuss things on India Portal? What keeps them away? -Animeshkulkarni (talk) 12:46, 4 January 2012 (UTC)
I have no idea but I am pretty sure it is not related to those who do contribute there, nor is it related to a lack of publicity - most India-related articles have a link to the WT:IN project. To be honest, I think that you will find most projects/portals are the same: the number who participate actively is much smaller than the number who "sign up", and those people are in turn only a fraction of the number who contribute to actual articles. I really would not try to build some sort of conspiracy theory around this, although it might be a subject worth raising at WT:INB in its own right.
There was recently an attempt to use a specific India-related "welcome" template but it seems to have died away, almost certainly in large part because the people who were aggressively promoting it had a rather extreme anti-western agenda. People get suspicious when someone starts taking pot shots at others and this became clear when the group were finally persuaded that the matter needed to be discussed at WT:INB. - Sitush (talk) 12:56, 4 January 2012 (UTC)

Help with a film

I've been working on Papadu for a few days - a complete rewrite of the thing. I've just added a short Popular culture section because there was a movie produced in 2006 called Sardar Papanna. I can't find out much about the thing, there doesn't appear to be an article for it, and the news stories that I can find appear to be wrong (they say that he lived during the Nizam's reign, for example). I get the impression that you are into films - do you know anything about this one? It looks like it may have been a flop but perhaps it is just that it was not overdubbed for non-Telugu audiences etc. - Sitush (talk) 14:17, 4 January 2012 (UTC)

BTW, this says that the film was released on the 18th & that this was Papadu's birthday. Do people really hype things up in such silly ways? No-one knows what year Papadu was born, let alone the month and day! They do not even know where he was born, although there are some vague guesses at Tarikonda. I rather get the impression that the film was not in fact released on the 18th after all of this blurb. Are there actually any reliable sources for Telugu cinema? I know that One India is terribly unreliable for everything, not just cinema. - Sitush (talk) 14:45, 4 January 2012 (UTC)
Huussshhh!!!! I am into films, but not Telegu. This hour or so that i used in answering this problem is the max connection i have had with telegu in my whole life. But even after that i dont bring any good news. Here's what i found.... (1) A film named Sardar Papanna was produced. Sample poster can be found here. Its in Telegu. But it reads సర్దార్ పాపన్న which is the Telugu script for "Sardar Papanna". (2) A list of Telugu films produced in 2006 shows its release date as 25th August 2006, which also matches with the release date on Krishna_(actor)#Filmography. I dont know how reliable is. Thats all!
But have asked Vensatry for help. He hopefully would add something good. And God! All Bios linked with this are horrible. Such famous filmy people with no reference links; not even IMDB!! How is your stomach? Must be churning like hell. -Animeshkulkarni (talk) 18:34, 4 January 2012 (UTC)
I am afraid that if you play the game of "connections" with Indian films then you'll be aware that the problem of sourcing is not limited to one film or even one genre. I'd guess 80-90% of the linked bios, for example, are well below par. The initial problem is determining a reliable source because in my (limited) experience, there are few that pass muster & there is a phenomenal amount of plagiarism, misreporting and hype. Anyway, thanks for your efforts - I'll take a look at the website you linked and will see what Vensatry can come up with. It doesn't need to be much, although if someone can create a decent article about the film then that would be nice. - Sitush (talk) 18:52, 4 January 2012 (UTC)
Lets wait for Vensatry. I tried. But with the info available i cant even create a stub for that film. I usually prefer atleast one good link for that. -Animeshkulkarni (talk) 19:29, 4 January 2012 (UTC)

Indic scripts

I really don't know; I was just writing what I have seen most often and what I thought was changing due to the RfC. Film titles are usually Romanized and it is fairly clear how to pronounce, but IPAs could not hurt. The Hindi-Urdu title usually appears in the film or on the DVD box so that is verifiable. The trouble with bios is that people come in and add 1,2,3,4 various languages scripts of their choice, and who knows if they are accurate. Then they get reverted, re-added, etc, and that needs to stop. So we decided to replace them with IPAs (as far as I know). BollyJeff || talk 14:36, 1 February 2012 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) You are correct - that was the outcome of the recent RfC. - Sitush (talk) 14:37, 1 February 2012 (UTC)
Ohkay!!!! For IPAs on titles some non-indian should comment. Sitush, can you go through few titles on Template:FilmfareAwardBestMovie, Template:FilmfareAwardBestTamilMovie, etc. and confidently read them? And if you can read film titles like Repati Pourulu why would there be difficulty in reading Vangapandu Prasada Rao or Gajapathinagaram? And what about the english translation of titles? Should we ourselves translate them? Thats a really tricky thing to do. Would want you to try Jhanak Jhanak Payal Baaje :-) -Animeshkulkarni (talk) 15:28, 1 February 2012 (UTC)
IMO you should use the official English title if it has one, else show the meaning, not necessarily the literal. For example I have seen a DVD for Kandukondain Kandukondain titled I Have Found It, though I doubt that is the literal translation. I am not Indian, and you are correct that it could be just as hard to pronounce film titles and proper names. But as stated before scripts are only problematic on Bios right now, so a solution was desired for them. BollyJeff || talk 15:43, 1 February 2012 (UTC)
Actually, the RfC applies to everything, imo - geographic etc included. It doesn't say that IPA must be used everywhere but it does say that scripts should not be used anywhere. I really wouldn't bother trying to challenge it because it is so recent. I do appreciate that there may be a bit of an issue with rendition of film and book titles but haven't got enough experience of that area except to point out the obvious: the scripts are even more problematic than any possible other version. This is English Wikipedia, not hi-WP, ml-WP etc.

I never get involved in phonetics and I never bother trying to read them myself: I live in a visual world but not a hearing world, and I have done so since birth. - Sitush (talk) 15:57, 1 February 2012 (UTC)

Wikipedia talk:Noticeboard for India-related topics#List of members of X caste

To steal Andy's words, Any unsourced assertion that a particular living person is of a particular caste is a violation of WP:BLP policy, and should be deleted on sight. I entirely agree with him and would like to inform you that uninvolved admins may impose discretionary sanctions on editors violating the provisions of said policy. Please, consider this a warning, made pursuant to the requirements of this ruling of the Arbitration Committee. Salvio Let's talk about it! 15:15, 10 February 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for taking efforts of repeating it. But be informed that i have never been involved in caste articles or lists or caste mentions in biographies. I do sidetrack it mostly. Any such involvement you might find in history would be meager. But i surely discuss it over talk pages. And that i mostly do because decisions taken there affect all articles and mainly, are not taken by a proper spectrum of people. So dont worry about me; i wont be causing any vandalisms. And also dont presume any threats from huge comments i post in discussions. -Animeshkulkarni (talk) 15:41, 10 February 2012 (UTC)


AK, please read the policy and stop flogging this dead horse of yours. You are wasting your time and that of everyone else. If you do not like the way that things are done then your options are either to get the policy changed (which cannot be done by the India project) or go edit elsewhere. Honestly, if you carry on as you are doing in these conversations about caste then I can see someone turning up and sticking a block notice here for being generally disruptive and/or clearly lacking competence. - Sitush (talk) 18:51, 10 February 2012 (UTC)

Will wait for that. Till then you have to bear with me. I atleast am talking on the issue and not going on mass-cleanups unlike you all do. And dont talk about competence. Your views on indian caste systems are all tertiary ones based on the writings of some second hand views of non-indians. And nor should you talk about the disruption. There is a reason why you get so many hate-messages on you talk pages that admins have to keep deleting. Try to think of that. You might actually be wrong here. -Animeshkulkarni (talk) 10:43, 11 February 2012 (UTC)
What I contribute is in accordance with Wikipedia policy and guidelines. If you do not like them then you can always contribute somewhere else, but as long as you are contributing here then you need to follow them. - Sitush (talk) 16:01, 11 February 2012 (UTC)

Can you better-label your "Views needed" on India Noticeboard post?

Greetings, you have a new section on the India Noticeboard labeled "Views needed" or similar; could you modify the title of your post to something clearer like: "Views needed at RFC: Dates in titles"?

Hi, I appreciate your concern about WP:BITE, referred to in your recent ANI thread. However, despite the limited number of edits under the Ror Is King name, it is evident that they are not a "newcomer" and this has been so from the outset of their involvement with this project when they were challenging stuff at ANI around November 2011. Whether they previously edited as an IP or have edited other versions of Wikipedia, their knowledge of policy etc and their ability to cite it has been apparent from the very beginning. It is, of course, also possible that they are having their strings pulled by others, off stage, but whatever the situation may be, a newcomer in the sense of WP:BITE is one thing that they are not. There have been various speculations regarding what is going on but without firm evidence it would be wrong to repeat them. No doubt things will become more clear in due course. - Sitush (talk) 10:45, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

What i actually meant was "Dont bite anyone", not just new-comers. But didnt find any fancy gif for that. -Animeshkulkarni (talk) 11:13, 27 February 2012 (UTC)
Ah, I see. It would be nice if we could somehow do that but we seem to get a lot of WP:IDHT and we cannot let such situations run for ever: it becomes disruptive, it impedes progress and it discourages involvement. This particular situation re: Tod has been running for a fortnight or so now, which is probably long enough. RIK tried at ANI last year (regarding something else) and failed; they're trying again and will fail simply because it is a content dispute. Their complaint last time was about an admin and myself; now they are complaining about other admins and myself. I can't help it if - generally speaking - I work within the rules and others do not. - Sitush (talk) 11:46, 27 February 2012 (UTC)
I won't embarrass you at ANI. Have you actually checked the article history? I left RIK's content in for 2 or 3 days after they refused to provide the sources & while I waited for copies from WP:RX. - Sitush (talk) 15:15, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

Talk page templates for redirect

No talk page templates for redirect unless there is a specific reason. Example, the redirect is about a single subject which points to a section of an article about many things combined, or some such attenuating circumstance. Otherwise usually not. AshLin (talk) 08:31, 1 March 2012 (UTC)

Deletion requires not just care but wisdom. If you want to bring people's attention to pages for second opinions, that's a good thing to do but it should be done on the talk page. AshLin (talk) 10:29, 2 March 2012 (UTC)

I did not know about the consensus But thanks for informing me about it. Though I don't support the consensus completely, I have removed it. I personally think for few days we should mention about the consensus while deleting Indic scripts in tyhe edit summary. See edit summary here.
I think if they are giving stress on IPA, they should delete {{lang-bn|xxxxx}} or {{lang-hi|xxxxx}} first --Tito Dutta (Send me a message) 15:05, 1 March 2012 (UTC)

BTW, I am not completely against the consensus too, if you see my user page, you'll notice I have not used Indic scripts in infobox or lead of my profile. But, personally I am not going to delete those from any article too. ---Tito Dutta (Send me a message) 15:05, 1 March 2012 (UTC)
To avoid fragmented discussion I have ported reply in my talk page. What I have posted there: I am not very sure about {{lang-hi|xxxxx}} but {{lang-bn|xxxxxx}} is a very common practice. --Tito Dutta (Send me a message) 18:49, 1 March 2012 (UTC)
Okay! I will keep replying here. But we cant go on checking for all languages. Either all are in or all are out. -Animeshkulkarni (talk) 18:52, 1 March 2012 (UTC)
Another point, may be sensitive- is this initiative applicable internationally or only for Indian languages?
Also note, almost all of the articles I have referred are well written and NOT stubs, so, you can't say, there are no editors there or they have not got time!--Tito Dutta (Send me a message) 19:28, 1 March 2012 (UTC)
No! The consensus was built limited for WikiProject India. Examples of many other projects were given there too. But to stop the mess that takes toll of editors, this was the only solution found. For example, go through the history of Rajnikanth. -Animeshkulkarni (talk) 19:34, 1 March 2012 (UTC)
What do you think of this. See the use of Devnagari script and the IPA (or whatever) there? That's the problem, we are going to face, wrong IPA scripting. --Tito Dutta (Send me a message) 19:47, 1 March 2012 (UTC)
Aahh!! That wasnt IPA. That was just Hindi words written in roman script. So its definitely wrong. But even with IPA we are gonna have problems. It takes awefully long time to write those. Atleast till we are new with it. I have tried only a couple of them. But the advantage is that non-indians would be able to pronounce the indian words in fairly better way. We also have to rely there on people being able to read IPAs. I usually cant. :) -Animeshkulkarni (talk) 20:03, 1 March 2012 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) I definitely can't! - Sitush (talk) 20:14, 1 March 2012 (UTC)
Yes, it takes long time to write and longer time to read (if anyone reads, I personally generally don't read).
BTW, manually deleting those Indian words from lead may be very time taking. They can create a bot for it which will delete all the Lang-Ind templates or Indian alphabets from the leads of articles, exactly the same way some bots repair broken link, remove dead links etc. Or they already have any such bot? --Tito Dutta (Send me a message) 05:30, 2 March 2012 (UTC)
No one will be investing time in just removal of these scripts. If by chance you are doing something on that article, remove it. Few registered editors and mostly IPs would psych out if we initiate a drive for this. -Animeshkulkarni (talk) 06:21, 2 March 2012 (UTC)
Are you adding any note while removing Indian languages like-
'''Ritwik (Kumar) Ghatak''' <!--PLEASE DON'T ADD NAME WRITTEN IN BENGALI HERE--> ({{Audio|Ritwik_Ghatak.ogg|''Rittik (Kumar) Ghôţok''}}; 4 November 1925{{ndash}} 6 February 1976) was a...., you can also see Lead section of [{Panipuri]] article, you need to go to edit mode to see the notes. I am not very sure if it is allowed to add a note like that, but in that article, in every 2-3 days, someone was entering another name in his or her mother tongue. So, I aded it there.--Tito Dutta (Send me a message) 06:25, 3 March 2012 (UTC)
That's fine & good to add this kinda note. I havent been in much dispute over this topic. But will do this if such thing happens. Thanks! -Animeshkulkarni (talk) 10:10, 3 March 2012 (UTC)

Something's happening

What's with the recent spree of assessing so many articles? Do you have reviewer rights, btw? X.One SOS 16:02, 2 March 2012 (UTC)

Are you not aware of Wikipedia:WikiProject India/Assessment/Tag & Assess 2012? Do i need some rights for this? No one said that before. It was an open invitation for all. No entrance exam! -Animeshkulkarni (talk) 16:08, 2 March 2012 (UTC)
Also they say here.... "Any member of the India WikiProject is free to add a rating to an article if they wish. However, the Assessment Team (from this department) may overrule the rating of an article if they see fit." -Animeshkulkarni (talk) 16:11, 2 March 2012 (UTC)
This is getting confusing. I thought we needed reviewer rights to assess articles. And that major contributors could not assess their own articles. Now, its topsy-turvy, eh? And, yes, I did not know about that assessment thing. An open invitation? For all WP India members? I see no reason as to why I should not join, if so. X.One SOS 16:19, 2 March 2012 (UTC)
Any reviewer can give upto class B. And any person part of that project is reviewer. And i haven't contributed majorly to any of the articles where someone would oppose the assessments i give. I have contributed in only Start class! You are welcome to join. Choose some category & get started. -Animeshkulkarni (talk) 16:29, 2 March 2012 (UTC)

(talk page stalker)Reviewer rights are not necessary as of now for anyone to assess articles as a result of the community's decision to remove pending-changes protection from articles. Vensatry (Ping me) 17:06, 2 March 2012 (UTC)

(talk page stalker)I am also little bit confused, More than 200 assessment in just few hours, and almost 500 assessment in one day.. --Tito Dutta (Send me a message) 17:16, 2 March 2012 (UTC)
500???????????? Definitely not. I am not gonna count them. I already declared that. There are very good chances that its gonna be an embarrassingly high number! -Animeshkulkarni (talk) 17:36, 2 March 2012 (UTC)
Congrats! Finally it is proved that man is better and can work faster than bots. he he he he! :-D See you have beat a bot. Can you beat cluebot too, who makes 100 edits in every 10 minutes. It is just a friendly joke. Please don't mind! --Tito Dutta (Send me a message) 17:55, 2 March 2012 (UTC)

I saw your edits on SLB's page for tabulation of awards. I believe earlier format was better as it was segregated award-wise. Though tabulation helps you sorts for various other things as well but I don't think its appropriate. I understand you are putting lot of efforts in doing so but still. What say? Thanks. - VivvtTalk 13:38, 5 March 2012 (UTC)

I dont know. The original format looked dull to me. This sortable thing is so fun to compare. :) Also the table will turn a bit short now. Few enteries in it are wrong. Lets see what others say. And its okay. I dont mind reverting it. -Animeshkulkarni (talk) 17:26, 5 March 2012 (UTC)
With the current format, most of the stuff gets repeated and adds no value to the content. Anyway, thats my opinion. You might want to take other's opinion on it. Thanks. - VivvtTalk 18:49, 5 March 2012 (UTC)
Info is all so condensed this way. Anyways... will revert it. -Animeshkulkarni (talk) 19:00, 5 March 2012 (UTC)

Oh no! Its okay. -Animeshkulkarni (talk) 19:28, 5 March 2012 (UTC)
Ok. You said few entries are wrong in the data. Would you mind correcting them if know you what are those? Thanks. - VivvtTalk 19:42, 5 March 2012 (UTC)
Am not sure abt it. Isnt the Best Movie award received by Producer? He wasnt producer for Khamoshi & Devdas. -Animeshkulkarni (talk) 19:44, 5 March 2012 (UTC)
I believe so. He shouldnt be mentioned. But I need to check for the sources. Will get back to you on this. Thanks for noticing. Thanks. - VivvtTalk 20:22, 5 March 2012 (UTC)
I checked for filmfare awards. Best movie is not given to director, though best critic movie is given to both producer and director. You may want to change it on SLB's page accordingly. Thanks. - VivvtTalk 00:49, 6 March 2012 (UTC)

Yes. If not Anand Bhate (would have been worst), I had expected Rahul Deshpande to win for "Ravi Mee". But none the less, Best one won. Deool won National Film Award for Best Feature Film and National Film Award for Best Actor for Girish Kulkarni. He is a surprise win this time. Won Best actor and Best dialogue for Deool.

Use of Indic Scripts in India related articles

Hi Animesh, have been reading a few articles on wiki where certain users have challenged the use of Indic scripts in India ralted articles. I would like to reinstate this need, as using Indic scripts is important
- to ensure correct pronounciation
- IPAs are not understood by most Indians, & the use of Indic scripts, specially for namesof people, communities of places is paramount in understanding them correctly
- Since there are so many Indian names with similar pronounciations & which can not be represented using IPA (primarity because the source laungauges is Latin & Not Sanskrit), feel that use of Indic Scripts should be open to all India articles (atleast).
Can we start a vote & pls help me understand how to initiate one. The current discussion seems to be closed already,

Since I am new, need some help in Initiating / reopening the vote. I would offcourse vote in favour of using Indic scripts in India related articles.

Ambar 07:57, 11 March 2012 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ambar wiki (talkcontribs)

Hello Ambar wiki! There are more vandalisms in having indic scripts than its advantages you mentioned above. Scroll up on my talk page and you will read another discussion. Plus i really dont think that indic scripts even help all Indians, forget foreigners. If i am not able to read Bengali, IPA or a sound file are the only options i have to correctly read Ritwik Ghatak as Rittik Ghotok. Apart from the link of DeltaQuad's talk page, also go through the original discussion present in INB's archive. If at all you wish to reopen a discussion for this, Wikipedia talk:Noticeboard for India-related topics is the place to start. But i am sure you will only receive links to these discussions. -Animeshkulkarni (talk) 09:38, 11 March 2012 (UTC)

Serial Plots

Please read WP:FILMPLOT a little further to where it says:

As WP:PSTS says, "...a primary source may be used only to make descriptive claims, the accuracy of which is verifiable by a reasonable, educated person without specialist knowledge... Do not make analytic, synthetic, interpretive, explanatory, or evaluative claims about information found in a primary source.

All of the sections I removed were stuffed full of analysis, synthetic, interpretive and evaluative claims. Stuffed full. Please do not revert those, that would be a clear violation of WP:OR, which is one of the cornerstone policies of Wikipedia and overrides guidelines like FILMPLOT. Thanks, Sparthorse (talk) 10:41, 13 March 2012 (UTC)

I frankly dont find any analysis or sythesis done there. Could you point it out please? They are just too elaborate giving many useless details. Cut them down, dont delete. -Animeshkulkarni (talk) 10:56, 13 March 2012 (UTC)
Really? Anyway, I was looking at the plot text you restored to Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon?. Most of it is a direct copyright violation of [2] so can't be included in the article. You'll also notice that on Feb 2nd. I left a message on the article's talk page asking for the plot section to be improved with references and cut down to fit the requirements of WP:PLOT particularly on length and tone. Guess how much reaction that got from the active editors of that article? Nothing. The problem is, I have no way to know what, if anything, in the plot description is accurate since none of it comes from reliable sources, which is exactly the reason why WP:OR and WP:V exist. There is no exception to these policies, even if guideline writers try to get around them. The entire plot section you restored is fan writing with no way for any reader to verify its accuracy, neutrality or relevance. We are trying to build an encyclopedia, not a fan blog. If we can find some way for a short, relevant plot section to be included, I'm all for it. What we had most recently was not that. The editors of the article need to discuss this on the talk page. Sparthorse (talk) 11:40, 13 March 2012 (UTC)
If its a copy vio, you should delete it. But you will seriously not find any reliable source for the serial's plot. I dont watch these serials. But i will dig in some fan sites and cut down the plot to minimum words and keep it there. But still you will have to assume good faith and accept that this is the real story of that show. -Animeshkulkarni (talk) 12:23, 13 March 2012 (UTC)

Hi Animesh, I just wanted to know how do you do the assessment? Do you use any tool or a software or a script that can update (lets say "Importance") many articles at once or you do it manually by hitting the talk page and then editing it. I just started doing today but found it a little tiresome. Any good idea?-Msrag (talk) 08:33, 14 March 2012 (UTC)

Hello! You may use a software called AWB that helps in assessing somehow. You need to take permission for it. But thats just a formality. You will find details about that on its page. Help is also available in Guide (Part 3). Users VasuVR (talk), Karthikndr (talk) and the drive co-ordinator Ssriram_mt (talk) are using this. They can help you more. But i do it manually for, 1. I didnt understand that damn AWB! 2. I am assuming that AWB doesnt do full assessment that you will be able to do if done manually. Its like you choose a few pages that you think are Stubs & Low importance. You write these codes and then AWB replaces those on these talk pages. But then it wont obviously see if the article has image or it belongs to Kerala or should be included in WikiProject Education and like wise. If you sort out a certain list which will have all these parameters, you have already done it manually. So i didnt see any point in using AWB. You will have to revisit your assessments. But you can give it a shot. I tried. Logged in, tried to figure it out & logged off! :) -Animeshkulkarni (talk) 11:01, 14 March 2012 (UTC)
Aah.. I see the AWB thing. Not sure if I'll be comfortable either as per the points you highlighted. Manual way is the easiest but takes a little time. But anyways, Thanks for your response. And BTW, who keeps the track of counts of assessments done by a user. I mean how do we count it? Do we update it manually in that table on the project page or it gets updated automatically? -Msrag (talk) 11:28, 14 March 2012 (UTC)
It is time consuming and i have lost my speed too. Will have to buckle up. No! Dont keep the count. Ssriram_mt is keeping it. He says its easy to count. But i dont know how. -Animeshkulkarni (talk) 11:40, 14 March 2012 (UTC)
Ok. Thanks again. -Msrag (talk) 11:46, 14 March 2012 (UTC)

New contributor could benefit from your assistance

Sdeepak scor has recently got Shudra - The Rising through WP:AFC after a bit of a tussle. Both the article and the new contributor could use some help but movie stuff is not really something at which I am much good. (not much good at anything, some would say!) Anyway, I wonder if you or one of your stalkers might be interested in collaborating with them to improve the article and also their knowledge of Wikipedia processes etc? - Sitush (talk) 18:35, 14 March 2012 (UTC)

My Proded leagues.

Hey mate. Thank you for your interest in these articles I had on prod. Anyway first off I did search these tournaments. I mean I am considered the admin of the Indian Football articles, do you think I would not look them up. Anyway I will take this article by article. The Kerala Football League had 4 links now. 1 does not work, 1 leads to a homepage of a website off topic, 1 leads to a CUP not the LEAGUE (Note I am thinking of creating the Kerala State Football Cup article because that is what the link is referring to. Also the fourth one is just Ancheri saying the need for a league, there is no proof that the league existed. When I first searched the league I got some hooks but they were all focused on DISTRICT leagues not the STATE leagues and going by W:NFOOTY the league would need to be at least a top state league and not a district league. That is why I PROD that article. The Street League, I just read that article. There is nothing there and from what I know, a street league is not notable, specially one that is not even licensed by the All India Football Federation which again violates NFOOTY because it needs to be part of the AIFF and be contested by Adults in order to be notable. The Agartala League I searched and again, like Kerala, is only a knock-out competition and again could be considered a district league, it is no where near being a top state league which proves its non-notability. Now as for the Subroto Cup Football Tournament if you look here [3] the Subroto Cup is not administered by the AIFF. It is also not a national cup. That is why it failed notability in my eyes. Anyway, now thats out of the way, I hope you see now why I put these for deletion. Yes I probably should have put a better reason but they do not pass at all. My job as the main editor of Indian Football pages is to edit, make the pages perfect, and to get rid of clutter that was made before I joined. I will not reprod them yet. Feel free to message me again if you have more questions. Cheers. --Arsenalkid700 (talk) 22:13, 19 March 2012 (UTC)

Hi! I am surely no expert in this field. In fact i also dont know how many players there are in a football team! You seem just better than me. But thats the reason why i was so surprised to see the tags on Subroto Cup Football Tournament and Kerala State Football League. Lets go case by case.
  • KSFL's 4th reference of Ancheri was added by me yesterday. Ancheri in that interview says "It is high time that the state association had drawn up a plan to revive the state league, which is virtually non-existent." Which means a certian KSFL exists. A thing can be revived only if it exists. If & when i get time, i will try & search more on this. I have no say on WP:NFOOTY. You and other editors sort that out.
  • Subroto Cup Football Tournament: The cup might not be administered by AIFF but it surely is popular. National newspaper care to publish its result every year and that makes it notable enough to stay.
  • The Street League & Agartala League: There is nothing there? Ofcourse there is nothing there because no one added it. That is not the reason to delete. It is a reason to add something there. Frankly, i did not even care to search for these two topics seeing the first two articles. I just plainly deproded them.
I am not sure on how you are judging notability of these articles. I have hence raised this issue at the WP:INB here where someone more competent than me can answer and help you. You might wanna ask for help to some other people before blindly deleting article. Please note that i have no knowledge of this feild and hence i might be completely wrong here. But you see, google had a say on these and hence i feel they deserve to stay. Also note that once deproded, the articles cannot be Proded again. You will have to go through WP:AfD for their deletion. If you are not sure about deletion i would suggest you always go through that channel. That way editors of that field notice it and decide more wisely on it. -Animeshkulkarni (talk) 11:26, 20 March 2012 (UTC)
Okay mate after discussion on the Indian Football Forum ( it has been decided to delete all of these leagues (except for Subroto Cup) for the following...

Kerala Football League: The article is a lie and there has never been a Kerala State League. There have been knock-out tournaments but never leagues.

What is Its not part of Wikipedia. -Animeshkulkarni (talk) 05:34, 23 March 2012 (UTC)
Indian Football Network is a website created in 2011 for all Indian Football fans to discuss various topics. It is based on BigSoccer which is a world wide football forum. Ever sense its creating I believe that the forum contains the smartest Indian Football fans in the world as we talk about subjects using sources and knowledge unlike on other websites like and sportskeeda where we just see users on there same regionalist stuff like for example "Goa should separate from India" and all that. Every member from Wikipedia:WikiProject Football/India task force is on this forum. If you want to join there should be something at the top right. --Arsenalkid700 (talk) 10:20, 23 March 2012 (UTC)
Whatever this forum is, it is not a right forum to discuss anything related to wikipedia. You may ofcourse discuss anything and everything there. But that is just for the sake of discussion. You do know WP:Afd, right? That is the way to decide on deletion of articles here. Or else my colony had long back decided to delete few political parties' articles as they are mostly useless. -Animeshkulkarni (talk) 10:42, 23 March 2012 (UTC)

No Animesh, that image you removed from Kahaani's plot wasn't unnecessary. We (me and other few editors) have discussed it to add random images related to the plot and theme of the film targeting it to be a GA in coming months. Image of Durga Puja adds meaning to the plot as Vidya kills the terrorist on the last day of Durga Puja and Amitabh narrating the importance of goddess Durga to destroy evil slightly hinting towards Vidya. And audiences too get a feeling of the same. Your say? --Msrag (talk) 12:20, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

Well in that case you may revert my deletion. The GA reviewer would comment on it if he needs to. -Animeshkulkarni (talk) 12:46, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

Whats the reason for reverting my deletion of indic scripts? -Animeshkulkarni (talk) 21:28, 26 March 2012 (UTC)
It wasnt "the deletion of indic scripts." It was that you reintroduced lots of inappropriate personal commentary and unsourced contested information of a personal nature, such as naming her families ethnic background etc. -- The Red Pen of Doom 21:37, 26 March 2012 (UTC)
You should then revert those edits. I specifically made seperate edits.

Jessie (character)

It was a full-fledged article about a fictional character. Some idiot forced it to become a redirect page, and to avoid any conflict, i made it a disambiguation page. so tell me: should it be revived as a character page or stay a disambiguation page? it will not be deleted. reply on my talkpage. Kailash29792 (talk) 08:50, 2 April 2012 (UTC)

Sir, you are right. But Jessie can be considered as popular as becoming actress Trisha Krishnan's new nickname and identity. I think the popularity of the character in the film Vinnai Thaandi Varuvaaya compelled the director to use her name in the film's remakes (Ye Maaya Chesave and Ekk Deewana Tha) as well. It also was an article connecting all the three films based on the same story. In that case can it stay? Kailash29792 (talk) 09:13, 2 April 2012 (UTC)

Your questions

AK, a friendly suggestion to you is that you don't fall into the trap of thinking that other editors are "biased", a "gang" of some sort, or pro this or anti that (as in pro-Ganges and anti-Ganga). Most of us here don't necessarily have strong views on content but do have strong views on sourcing, neutrality and in giving coverage to topics or ideas that is appropriate for an encyclopedia. Fowler, for example, is a classic example of an editor who will go out of his way to balance articles (just take a look at List of Doon School alumni before and after his edits). YK, on the other hand, is a classic example of an editor who has a POV and is willing to do anything to get his POV into the article whether or not it is due, well sourced, or neutral, and he has no interests on wikipedia other than this. I don't know whether or not you hold the same opinions as YK, but you do have other interests and are far more useful as an encyclopedia builder than is YK, so I urge you to stop thinking in terms of pro and anti but rather to focus on content, whether a particular addition to an article is well sourced, is representative of where scholarly belief is, and whether it is important enough (again, by looking at where it figures in academic works) to be featured in a particular article. I hope you take this in the right spirit because I mean this well! Regards, --regentspark (comment) 14:25, 4 April 2012 (UTC)

I have no such biases, yet. But will surely form them looking at the biases other people have. You yourself are seeing how discussion on Ganges is now going. Did i have a bias here while proposing or he had a bias while rejecting? I dont mind ppl rejecting like this. They can obviously have opposite views. But these reply from both didnt seem like unprejudiced. And didnt reply to this immediately as i was waiting for the discussion on Ganges. §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 17:05, 6 April 2012 (UTC)

Indian Cinema task force Volunteer

Since you have agreed to volunteer in coordinating the task force, the community has decided to elect you for the same. Myself along with you will be the coordinators and will be working together. The volunteer coordinator will have the following responsibilities:

  • Do whatever needs doing in the Indian Cinema task force, or getting it done alongwith others.
  • Do everything that needs doing in the task force, or getting it done alongwith others.
  • Look after the interests of the task force community in general and the articles in specific.
  • Represent the views of the task force wherever representation/participation is sought; to get & put forward the community's viewpoint.
  • Innovate and bring forth new initiatives, continue existing ones and retire defunct ones.
  • Maintain the task force infrastructure of pages.
  • Community development - recruitment, motivation, empowerment.
  • Join the mailing list for Wikipedians working on India related content on English Wikipedia (wikimedia-in-en [at] lists [dot] wikimedia [dot] org)

The Volunteer coordinator is a volunteer from the community and is answerable to the community. He enjoys the informal recognition and full support of the community. However, he is open to recall by the community, should the community so decide. Let Around The Globe/Ashlin/me for further queries. Cheers! Vensatry (Ping me) 03:12, 6 April 2012 (UTC)

Indian populations

I've come here having noticed you posting to AshLin's talkpage. FYI the main source for populations is the government census site at - they're still working on the data from the 2011 census and have only got it for the big cities, for smaller places you have to go to which only has the 2001 data. There's a bit of a knack to using it - one thing is that they have separate searches for villages and urban areas and sometimes you have to try both kinds to find your place. Often the Wikipedia spelling is different to the government spelling, and so you end up using the drop-down box at the bottom to go through the state-district-subdistrict hierarchy. Someone is going to have fun updating all the village articles when the 2011census results finally come out...
I've added 2001 data to Kaipuzha - there were 1,565 households in the town so that figure of 713 in the church seems plausible. FWIW, I think it was probably right that the church didn't get its own article. It's in a grey area, but just from skimming Google I think you would have really struggled to get the references to build it into a meaningful article, and you've got to imagine what a WP:GA on the topic would look like when you start an article. Maybe there's some good paper histories of it somewhere but for the time being I think it would be much better to develop the Religion section of the town article instead. Not least because that would allow you to cover the relationship between the churches and the convents, which at first glance looks the more interesting aspect of Christianity in the town. FlagSteward (talk) 10:10, 11 April 2012 (UTC)

Hi! Thanks for noticing and taking these many efforts. The church article had already been deleted till i woke up and hence i didn't contact the users AshLin mentioned. Just kept a mental note that these are the ppl to contact in future. 1565 households is a good number. If 713 was to be believed, ~45% of village's followers was a fairly good number too. But anyways... the article didn't have much to stand on its own. Except that this church is 200yr old. But having all related info at Kaipuzha itself is better. Thanks for adding that. §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 10:29, 11 April 2012 (UTC)
AS i see that the article Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/St. George's Forane Church is deleted , (but all is not lost) Now you can request the closing admin (or I guess any admin) to transfer the contents of the deleted page into your sandbox for improving it, I am glad that you are trying for sources, if sufficient sources are there , you can back it up , improve the article and put it again . -- ÐℬigXЯaɣ 11:26, 11 April 2012 (UTC)
From the AFD it seems like there wasn't much worth rescuing, and I would concentrate on working within the Religion section of the existing Kaipuzha article, it's not as though it's too full right now. I share the doubts about exactly what it was that was founded in 1813. In particular it bothers me that there seems to be almost no mentions of this church from colonial-era documents (at least, not online). You wouldn't expect it to be as well documented as a church in London, but you would expect something. There's a few convent references but nothing about the church - and given the size of the place you maybe wouldn't expect there to be a non-convent church. I suspect that whatever it was that was founded in 1813 was convent-related, I guess the decision to build a shiny new forane church in 1983 was maybe connected with a loss of convent influence for some reason. I'm speculating, but my gut feel says that the 19th-century history is convent history rather than church history. The fact that something is 200 years old is not a reason for notability in itself, it just means that there should be lots of sources referring to it, and it's those sources that make something notable.FlagSteward (talk) 00:36, 12 April 2012 (UTC)

Geet Ramayan

Which category would this fall into? This is not an album but a radio broadcast and was spanned over a year. Do you have any idea? And ya... Is it a single word or two different as for the current article. Thanks. - VivvtTalk 20:32, 20 April 2012 (UTC)

Originally it was a poetry book by GaDiMa, later composed by Bapuji and the aired on AIR (Pune). This looks like the cover of the book. The book was hardly famous. It got fame only after being composed into songs and aired. But now its mostly known as some album. Add both Category:Indian radio programs‎ and Category:Albums by Indian artists. Also Category:Hindustani classical music albums should go, i guess. I first though it was one word. Few album covers show it as one word. Even GaDiMa's official site uses one word. But thats only while writing in Marathi. Elsewhere its always split like the current title. Also other book references use two separate word. §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 20:58, 20 April 2012 (UTC)
Ya. I saw that image a minute later I posted message on your talk page. So lets keep it separate. Btw, are you sure it was a book? Whatever interviews I have heard/read/seen, it was always mentioned that GDM and SP found it challenging and equally interesting to write/compose a song before it went on air in a short span of time.

(Q: Isn't this song more popular as "Ladake Kausalle Rani" ("Lādake Kausalye Rāni")?
  • Took a reference of GDM site as got two different lines for the same song as title.
I know the song as LKR and not UKT. Will have to search and see on google which gives more correct results.

Do you expect me to write in Marathi as well to get clear insight about what the actual word is? like Traatika and not Taatika? And do not take reference of current page. I have started developing the article here, so some of the words are wrong in the original article.
Ppl say we "dont need" indic scripts. So no! & sorry about "traatika". The lyrics site as well as GDM said "Taatika". Thats why i wrote it so. But just heard the song. "Traatika" is right. I got ur new link. Am using that itself. §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 13:28, 23 April 2012 (UTC)

Devon ke Dev - Mahadev page

Why have you deleted all the episodes in that page? We were compling it so well everyday? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Harikrishnan04 (talkcontribs) 06:20, 23 April 2012 (UTC)

Hello Hari!
Wikipedia is not an indiscriminate collection of information. We do not write stories of all 117 episodes. The show will surely make 300+ episodes. We dont need all that. Instead we should write only small summary of what is happening in the series. Please go through this section, Wikipedia:Manual_of_Style/Television#Plot_section. Also delete that whole episode-by-episode plot and write only summary of what has happened till now. Remember to limit your words there too. Or else it will again be deleted. §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 08:11, 23 April 2012 (UTC)
There can be a sperate page of list of episodes which would contain the summary of every episode, check this out [4] --sarvajna (talk) 08:20, 24 April 2012 (UTC)
Yeah! That can be done. But they being not notable will be deleted. See the various AfDs currently going on. Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of Sanya episodes, Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of Kya Mast Hai Life episodes, Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of Kartika episodes, Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of Navya episodes, Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon Episodes. Frankly speaking, the main article Devon Ke Dev – Mahadev also will have to give some fight to stay in AfD. §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 08:34, 24 April 2012 (UTC)

Tagging the vandals

Please don't forget to tag the vandals by twinkle (after a revert [5]) [6] this discourages them to continue malpractices (and/or helps in blocking them).keep up the good work. Also Consider requesting Rollback rights at wp:RFP/R cheers -- ÐℬigXЯaɣ 09:01, 23 April 2012 (UTC)

  •   Of course, just thought of dropping a line. Whenever you revert a vandalism by pressing revert vandalism,soon after the revert the talk page of the defaulting user opens (in edit mode) where you can write your comment, Generally its better just to use the default warning templates using the Twinkle link on the top when you are on a user page.(the options of twinkle change depending on the page you are in e.g. article page or talk page or user page. ) (apology for the nagging, I just felt it was imp to let you know), regards-- ÐℬigXЯaɣ 10:42, 23 April 2012 (UTC)

Please understand that vandalism is something that is undoubtedly destructive to Wikipedia. Stuff like this should be given a second thought. I do understand that the user failed to give out a proper reason for the revert but that does not make it follow the definition of vandalism. This is bound to become a serious issue, if you continue, given that good faith is necessary. I would suggest that you use either the good faith roll-back or the ordinary one, but try giving out a summary of it. Thanks. Secret of success (talk) 16:42, 25 April 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for your contributions to Wikipedia!

Please have a look at wiki page for bofors and update it with any missing/new info, if possible: I would also like to request you to help in improving coverage on such similar articles, if possible. This would create very useful awareness about the facts of real corruption cases in India and how they are handled/mishandled. Hopefully, this would help in ultimately leading to a day when corruption at high places (if exposed) is punished. Thanks.

Just to let you know, if someone removes the PROD tag, do not restore it. Articles should be PRODed only ONCE. If it is taken off and you still want the article deleted, take it to AfD. Thank you. Secret of success (talk) 06:26, 3 May 2012 (UTC)

Thats done when the PROD tag is removed for contesting the deletion. But when some IP removes PROD tag along with other all maintenance tags, why take it to AfD? That's vandal. §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 06:29, 3 May 2012 (UTC)
You may restore the maintenance tag but not the PROD one, in that cast. Secret of success (talk) 06:49, 3 May 2012 (UTC)
But what about this particular case, do we remove the tag now that we have some fan-forum discussing this subject? §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 06:51, 3 May 2012 (UTC)

Recent AfDs

This refers to your recent AfDs relating to television characters - individual and lists, episodes lists etc. I feel the need for a policy on this, especially related to Indian Television, where articles keep sprouting out, probably started by PR folk. For example, I read a comment on one of the afds that episode lists for example should be only considered where the soap has completed atleast 5 years on air. Should we start an RfC specifically for Indian Television? Around The Globeसत्यमेव जयते 08:16, 3 May 2012 (UTC)

I would love to have some clear and strict lines on all these articles related to TV serials. But i dont know where to have such RfC. Wikipedia:WikiProject Indian television is dead. WP:INB wont be very interested in this matter. I am also not happy with the WP:TVSHOW's loose stand on shows being notable if they are aired on national network. What show isn't aired there? My experience with bigger forums is not very pleasant. I dont blame them much. But they really dont understand what the real situation with Indian shows is. So i dont expect much from other wider discussions. But if you suggest, i am in for making a rule book. Also note that biographies are also popping out like crazy.
I dont recall who made that comment of 5yr+ list. I don't mind having list of episodes for shows of even 50-60 episodes. But thats when the show has a format where every episode has a different theme. Like List of Sarabhai vs Sarabhai episodes. But you cant have list of episodes where one story is dragged and pulled and stretched for ages. You cant have a episode list of Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi. §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 08:53, 3 May 2012 (UTC)
Some policy is definitely needed. So the options to me are to start a discussion at WP:INB, WP:Notability or WP:RfC. What do you think? Around The Globeसत्यमेव जयते 07:52, 4 May 2012 (UTC)
Sure! Lets start in our home ground first at WP:INB. Going to a global discussion at WP:Notability wont be useful much at this stage. §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 08:03, 4 May 2012 (UTC)

If i do any poor editing,that must be restored. but anyway I've seen some of the actress articles in which their birth date has been provided through IMDB. Despite being that this(Divya Bharti) actress has died a long ago.also all the newspapers or news channels may had removed those all contents related to providing citation for a line to line is rarely thing is that at the time of her death current Mumbai DCP arup patnaik had made some of the statement i've also added that with references but no matter :) I'm not much known about bollywood.Divya Bharti's complete biography is provided on her official the question is how to add citations and references if we are adding something form her official website.Is it possible to use one reference more than once or twice. it would be more better if you tell me me personally by posting on my talk page.please do not recommend wiki's shortcuts,cos m too lazy to read rather than decode me in you words.i'll be happy to read you long long note on talk page :D :D ,in conclusion i beg your pardon if i've used any either bad words or bad way to express my views.thank youRpaigu (talk) 07:24, 13 May 2012 (UTC)

There don't seem to be any problems as of now with copyvios. The ones those were noticed were removed and are not back again. §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 07:33, 18 May 2012 (UTC)
Pavitra Rishta, I had removed some and tagged for further copyvio check, but the copyvio check tags were repeatedly removed and the vios added back. I've protected now, but I'm guessing there's more like that. —SpacemanSpiff 08:07, 18 May 2012 (UTC)

Thank you

  Silk Purse Award
I am both pleased and honored to present you with the Silk Purse Award in appreciation for your superb improvements to the Jitendra Joshi (Marathi actor) article, essentially changing what was seen as a sow's ear into a terrific silk purse. Far too often well-meaning editors nominate something for deletion without understanding how or where to look for suitable sources. Also far too often others might look at an article's current state and opine negatively, becuase issues had not yet been addressed by someone else. Thank you for your fine work in showing the errors inherent in not being diligent and in underscoring that we are a community trying to work together. Schmidt, MICHAEL Q. 23:12, 18 May 2012 (UTC)

Saas Bina Sasural

I understand that why you deleted the trivia in Saas Bina Sasural but Wikipedia says: "Trivia sections should not simply be removed from articles in all cases. It may be possible to integrate some items into the article text. Some facts may belong in existing sections, while others may warrant a new section. Integrate trivia items into the body of the article if appropriate. Otherwise, see if the trivia section contains sources for a particular aspect of the subject of the article, and then consider using the section items as basis for a different article discussing that aspect. Items that duplicate material elsewhere in the article, have no support from reliable sources, or lack real importance can be removed in most cases.

Research may be necessary to give each fact some context or to add references. Any speculative or factually incorrect entries should be removed; entries outside the scope of the article should be moved to other articles; and entries such as "how-to" material or tangential/irrelevant facts may fall outside Wikipedia's scope and should be removed altogether."

When replying please leave me a Tb template. --Arnesh(২০১২) 18:17, 21 May 2012 (UTC)

This section describes what should be done with sections in any article called "trivia" or by similar other names. But when i removed that para and wrote "trivia" in edit summary what i meant was that the section is trivial i.e. of little importance. §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 18:43, 21 May 2012 (UTC)

Please watch these...

Hi Animesh!!....from tomorrow I am going to take a Wikibreak, for nearly one moth, and I want you to watch (watchlist) some pages, which I have given a special space in my Watchlist. I have worked a lot to better these article. Some of these are protected, but vandalism still occurred by new users, so they were either indefinetly blocked or case(s) against them are ongoing. The protection of one article is gonna end n June 9, the second on June 10 and the other just after three weeks. Nearly all of them are soap opera articles. Recently an user (Dadjan) was blocked indefinetely for continuous didruptive edit on Bade Achhe Lagte Hain, so after the protection ends he may be back with a sockpuppet account or an IP address so please be aware. Anoter one (i.e. Byah Hamari Bahu Ka) is on a brand new serial so that may be extensively edited by IP address users or others, so please check on them too. One more things is that Yuvraj Uday Veer Singh (a character of Dekha Ek Khwaab) is not the male protagonist of the show. If anyone adds that just revert that edit, many users engaged in edit war regarding that so a case is ongoing against them, especially Seherali. The list articles are as follows:

Copyvio cleanup

You have now been active on copyvio cleanup for a while, but it's a huge daunting task. Do you want to coordinate a small sub-project on the India group for that? Maybe we have a target of one category at a time, starting with something that's less patrolled but high on web copyvios like TV actors etc. I was thinking of doing something like this a while back, as I'm probably the only one from the India project who is active on CCIs, but always got sidetracked. cheers. —SpacemanSpiff 17:49, 31 May 2012 (UTC)

Sure... No problem. Would love that. So which category to start with? §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 19:04, 31 May 2012 (UTC)
Typically, most copyvios tend to be around film/tv, religion (especially around the sadhus and swamijis) and politicians. However, sometimes individual contributors take it to a separate level, e.g. Jpullokaran has messed up the entire set of articles around Thrissur with copyvios while Vrghs jacob has flooded government stuff with copyvios. A small category under film/tv may serve as a good starting point though as those are easier to find out (many blogs pick up the listings from the producers and makes our job easier). A starting point could be contributions from one of our anti-Bollywood Hungama sockmasters Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Vinujadhav. cheers. —SpacemanSpiff 20:19, 1 June 2012 (UTC)

New to editing. Help needed

Hi Animesh

This is my first day of editing. Hence, wasn't able to understand what was going wrong with my editing of the Kunal Karan Kapoor page and also why the changes were disappearing. I now understand that one has to maintain neutral tone etc and cannot include subjective stuff.

But now the page has been reverted to a very very old version with incomplete info and not to the one that I had began editing the first time earlier today

A request:

Either kindly revert to the version of the page that i had began editing for the first time today or

Can u plz just edit my changes, removing the stuff that u believe is subjective and letting other stuff remain including the language and grammatical corrections

As i said, the current page displayed for Kunal Karan Kapoor is unfortunately not the one that i had seen earlier today and decided to edit. This is some very basic version which has most of the info wiped out

Looking fwd to yr support and help

Highbeam Research

Hi. Not sure if you have applied for this or not but in a recent article on a 2004 independent Filipino movie I found this to be an incredible resource and found lots of Filipino newspaper articles not picked up by google. I strongly recommend this for anyone who edits articles on films and cinema personalities to get this asap as it wil be an invaluable research tool and will often turn up detailed articles which will not appear in google. You can gain access to the full articles by applying for it at Wikipedia:HighBeam/Applications. For sure it'll have tons on Indian actors and films which so far you've been unable to access on google. ♦ Dr. Blofeld 15:48, 7 June 2012 (UTC)


FYI... It is WikiProject Biography and not WikiProject Biographies. Several things around here don't recognize "Biographies". "Biography" is also the name of the template and not one of its redirects. Bgwhite (talk) 19:45, 7 June 2012 (UTC)

Aaha! Thanks for the note. But whats the difference? Template is same, categories it adds are same. Also if you can answer; why are few templates so sensitive with use of exact words. Like "WikiProject Albums" works, but "WikiProject Album" doesn't. Also "WP India" works but "WP Biographies" doesn't. §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 19:56, 7 June 2012 (UTC)
Ummm! "WP Biography" works. §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 19:57, 7 June 2012 (UTC)
There is official template name, for example WikiProject Biography. All others are just redirects. WP Biography is a redirect that points to WikiProject Biography. There is something about "Biographies" that makes it act weird for some reason. It is best to use the proper template name, but alot of them are long and it is easier to just use the redirect. I personally have a AutoHotkey script on my windows machine. The script makes so I just press ctrl+c and WikiProject Cricket is added. My script is here. It is very, very simple to use.

Help on finding Hindi Voice actors

Hello, Over the past few months, I've been trying to find some Hindi voice-dubbing artists of famous actors from foreign films, but I am having a hard time searching, since there is currently no Hindi dubbing database on the internet. Since you are an Indian Wikipedian and one of the present volunteer coordination participants on the Wikipedia:WikiProject Film/Indian cinema task force, Can you try to see if you can help me find these following Hindi voice artists? Here's what I want to find:

  • Who is the Hindi voice actor that dubbed over Adam Sandler's role as Michael Newman in the film, Click?
  • Who is the Hindi voice actor that dubbed over Mark Hamill's role as Luke Skywalker in the original Star Wars films from IV-VI?
  • Who is the Hindi voice actor that dubbed over Martin Jarvis's role as Sir Cosmo Duff-Gordon in Titanic? I know Namrata Sawhney gave Hindi voice to Kate Winslet's role as Rose DeWitt Bukater/Dawson in the movie, but who voiced Martin Jarvis's role as Gordon?

Once you find that certain artist, you can make a Wikipedia page about a certain Hindi voice artist, like how I did for some, but as long as you could possibly know a Hindi Dubbing Director, or might have already know the info about the Hindi voice actors of foreign films. Also, I am aware that some foreign films were dubbed in Hindi many years later, after their original theatrical release.

Plus, when it comes to finding these Hindi voice artists, you can add their date of birth and where they were born from as well.

I'm not Indian and I know this seems like a pretty big job, But if you are interested into Indian dubbing industries and can try to take this favor, Please try leave a talk message on my talk board and see if you can do anything about it. I've asked other people who are Indian Wikipedians and that are also involved in the Dubbing Industry, but I got no info from them yet. But, please leave me a message, when you can. Thanks.

You can also check out this List of Indian dubbing artists as well.

Don the character

Hi, here is an article: Don (character) based on the lead from Bollywood's popular Don series. But one guy made it a redirect, claiming the character has no notability. U see bollywood films? U think the character is notable enough to have a separate article? Kailash29792 (talk) 08:08, 15 June 2012 (UTC)

I agree with that guy. For having a separate article on a character, the character should be such notable that third-party sources should have commented on it. And note; comments should be on the character and not the actors playing it. If you can find such sources, you can call in notable. In today's situation you can start working on the paragraph "Don" in the article Don (film series). When it grows big and seems notable to separate, you can separate it out. §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 09:06, 15 June 2012 (UTC)

there is some useless review site inserting their own reviews into wiki like in the article on Rowdy Rathore film. one line of the reviews section reads "film critics Pratik Borade gave Rowdy Rathore 4 out of 5 star, says, "Rowdy Rathore released today to Rock you, Entertain you, Superb Masala Movie. a total paisa vasul Movie, excellent action scene from Akshay. It's Akshay`s smashing comeback film as an action star. A Big Hug to Prabhudeva, Akshay and Sonakshi... The girl playing Chinki is so........ cute, don't miss to watch it. go to theater and enjoy it.

Sanaya Irani

Just thought I would ask for your opinion. I made some edits to Sanaya's page on 9th June, adding references, removing fan made information (I have only seen "Television's Barbie Doll" on forums during Google searches) and rewriting sections so that they sound better and make more sense. This has appeared to anger one fan (as I can only presume from his contributions), Saurabhkr wiki. Against my better judgement, after waiting a few days and posting on his talk page, I reverted back to the original version. This user had copied and pasted most of what I had written back on to the page anyway. Have I done the right thing?

Coolcool2012 (talk) 10:41, 16 June 2012 (UTC)
Update - he has reverted the page (as expected) and has written this on my talk page. I understand neutrality may be an issue, but that is because I have not found any references to back any negative comments (such as " She was noticed in the film but didn't got popularity and success "). Maybe it does exist, but he should cite something... Anyway, I will probably leave her article for the time being to avoid an edit war with a serious fan.

Award articles/templates by Noor119848

Hello Animeshkulkarni. I notice you've started a couple deletion discussions for articles and templates created by User:Noor119848. I don't know if you're aware, but that user (using that account and others, including User:Noormohammed satya) has created dozens of new, and for the most part unsourced, articles on Indian movie and television awards. If (unlike me) you have some familiarity with this subject area then I'd invite you to examine the other articles as well:

Possibly some or all of these also fail our notability and sourcing policies as well. I have a suspicion that the accounts were operated by a vandal known for adding false information to Indian TV and movie articles (see Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Noormohammed satya) so perhaps even the claims in the sourced articles should be checked against the sources themselves. —Psychonaut (talk) 14:34, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

Oh i see! I wasn't aware that they are proven socks. With their superb interest in Indian TV show article i am sure they are linked with some production company and hence are simply glorifying themselves. There are many such SPAs here. I will surely try and clean them. They will come up again. §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 14:44, 9 July 2012 (UTC)
It's only a suspicion; SPI hasn't confirmed anything yet. But regardless, if you have some knowledge of Indian TV and movies it would be helpful if you could check over the contributions to make sure they don't contain falsehoods or self-promotion. Possibly more of the articles will need to be deleted due to non-notability, copyright violations, or inadequate sourcing. —Psychonaut (talk) 15:40, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

Just so you are aware

I have mentioned one of your edits in a discussion here: Wikipedia_talk:User_pages#Recent_change. I think it was a correct edit, and I don't think that anyone would consider it incorrect, but I thought you might want to be aware. -- The Red Pen of Doom 01:49, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for the notice. I could not go through the whole discussion there. Hence did not reply there. (Did not want "we-just-said-that" comment. )
The reason why i removed the redirect was because i assume that semi-automatic applications like Twinkle, Huggle, etc. create some problem here. While editors want to issue warnings to the User on his User talk:Engology, many of them had issued it on the article talk page Talk:Engology including the welcome note. They could very well look before they leapt. But i don't blame them completely as they are all used to not having such problems. And i also thought the user actually wasn't aware of what they were doing. Hence i removed that redirect. Let them enjoy the God granted user page of their own! §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 04:42, 11 July 2012 (UTC)
yes it is now 2 long discussions about whether it is or is not appropriate for a user page to be redirected to article space and if we can agree on that, whether it is worthwhile to "codify" that agreement in the guideline. -- The Red Pen of Doom 11:16, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
Simplicity is the best policy. Keep both pages separate. §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 12:24, 12 July 2012 (UTC)


On similar lines, there is this user User talk:Drpremrajpushpakaran who creates his own article User:Drpremrajpushpakaran/sandbox in sandbox. The article-space article has been previously deleted. Do we keep such articles? The User doesn't do anything else than self-promotion. §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 10:19, 12 July 2012 (UTC)

as far as keeping "draft" articles in user space its covered here WP:STALEDRAFT. i would put the {userspace draft} tag on it and notify the user and then in a month or so if there has been no attempt to improve it with third party references nominate it for WP:MFD. -- The Red Pen of Doom 10:46, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
it didnt look like he had been formally told about the way wikipedia views conflict of interest, so i left the {subst:uw-coi} notice on his talk page. -- The Red Pen of Doom 10:50, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
Okay! Thats good. Thanks. §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 11:02, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
it appears that User talk:RHaworth is familiar with this case and has expedited the matter. i had not realized the user has multiple times re-re-re-created the article!-- The Red Pen of Doom 11:51, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
wow. you can say one thing for that guy, he is persistent! he has recreated it at least twice more since we started talking. -- The Red Pen of Doom 07:54, 13 July 2012 (UTC)
Oh yeah! "Men get such hardons from putting their names on things. You guys don't grow up. It's like you need to pee on everything."
He is also on Commons uploading his image. File:Dr prem raj p.jpg. Hey... i guess the old AFD article was not created by this user. I don't know who did. Maybe someone somewhere is still duplicating this stuff. Can you please check that? §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 08:22, 13 July 2012 (UTC)
i dont have admin rights to see deleted histories, but you could ask an admin to temporarily recreate the first version in one of your user subpages while you do some sleuthing. if the version is not slanderous, they will frequently do that. and then when you have found what you needed, you can have it deleted again. -- The Red Pen of Doom 08:33, 13 July 2012 (UTC)
Oh! I was since ages under an impression that you were an admin. Did not bother to check. Will ask RHaworth then. §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 08:42, 13 July 2012 (UTC)

List of characters in C.I.D. (TV series)

Hi, I wanted to let you know that I challenged your WP:CSD A10 on List of characters in C.I.D. (TV series). The article is more then a year old and contains significant content not present at the other page, thus it is not eligible under criteria A10. You may want to look at Wikipedia:Merging. Monty845 13:46, 16 July 2012 (UTC)

I am sorry! But i don't see you in the [Special:ListUsers/sysop|Admins list]]. And if you are not one, removing the tag is not the way to contest it. Click on the "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" button which takes you to the article's talk page and then express your concerns there. Please revert your removal of the tag. §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 14:01, 16 July 2012 (UTC)
Any editor other then the articles creator may contest a speedy deletion tag by removing it. From the top of WP:CSD "The creator of a page may not remove a speedy deletion tag from it. Only an editor who is not the creator of a page may do so." You are of course free to start a WP:AFD if you still think the article should be deleted A10, but I don't think it will end in that result. Monty845 14:07, 16 July 2012 (UTC)
You could still use the talk page to state your reason. I dont mind you talking with me on my talk page. But then how will other editors come to know of what is happening? §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 14:12, 16 July 2012 (UTC)
The concept of Speedy Deletion is that it is for use in situations where there is nothing to discuss; For articles that so clearly need to be deleted that no one who understands Wikipedia policy could reasonably argue against deletion; in other words, uncontroversial deletion. Thus, any editor may remove a speedy deletion tag if they disagree, with the exception of the article author. At which point, if there is still a need to discuss whether the article should be deleted, the matter can be raised for a full discussion at WP:AFD. Monty845 14:18, 16 July 2012 (UTC)
All i am saying is say whatever you want to say on the article's talk page. §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 14:22, 16 July 2012 (UTC)

Anand is not the only film of Rajesh Khanna. There are many more handsome looking Khanna's images available.

I am changing the spellings as per telugu transliteration. looks like @User:DRAGON BOOSTER is using tamil spellings. He cant distinguish between Ta, Tha, sa and Sha. Can you please help.Nagarjuna198 (talk)

Sorry! I don't know Tamil as well as Telugu. Whatever are your opinions of right spellings you can put on the article's talk page along with reliable sources supporting it. Thats the way to decide which is the right spelling. Check what newspapers, films poster, DVD covers, films website, other reliable websites, etc. are using. §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 13:21, 18 July 2012 (UTC)
check Shubh Vivah and Shubham is spelling in telugu as well as sanskrit word and you can see the transliteration for శుభ లగ్న౦.
What spelling other works use does not matter. What spelling this particular work uses matters. Or else we would not have Diwana (1968 film) and Deewana (1992 film) or Hum Kisise Kum Nahin and Hum Kisise Kum Naheen and so on. With your logic "Vivah" should also have two As per Ek Vivaah... Aisa Bhi. §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 13:44, 18 July 2012 (UTC)
In telugu movie name is written as శుభ లగ్న౦ which transliterates to Shubha Lagnam. However there are some sources which write english spellings as "Subha lagnam" and some "Shubha Lagnam". Since there is conflict in sources, I decided to go with original Telugu spelling's(శుభ లగ్న౦) transliteration. Nagarjuna198 (talk)

Orphaned non-free image File:Rajesh Khanna.jpg


Thanks for uploading File:Rajesh Khanna.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. —SpacemanSpiff 20:07, 18 July 2012 (UTC)

I actually had planned to challenge that on grounds that no free equivalent showing Khanna in his young age is available referring WP:NFCC#1. And he is known as an actor only from his young age. What do you say? Should i do that?   §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 06:49, 19 July 2012 (UTC)


Hi, I am sure you are aware of WP:NLIST. Do you have any idea whether some exception to it has been created for filmographies? Particularly in relation to India, where actors seem to have a phenomenal output, there are often long lists of unsourced and unlinked films. I rather think that these should be pruned per NLIST even though that means they are no longer a definitive filmography but rather a selected one.

We really should not rely much on IMDb but, of course, IMDb does usually appear in the External Links section & so anyone who is really interested in seeing a (purported) full list can still get to it. - Sitush (talk) 04:15, 19 July 2012 (UTC)

(talk page stalker)General consensus at AfD seems to fly in the face of NLIST on stuff related to films, fiction etc. —SpacemanSpiff 04:37, 19 July 2012 (UTC)
I should have been more specific, sorry. I was referring to embedded lists. Dara Singh has somewhere over 100 titles listed, very few of which are linked and the vast majority of which were "B-grade". That assessment comes from an interview in the dreaded ToI with Mumtaz: she says that she began acting with him around 1963 (11 years after his debut) and that he was sometime doing 30 movies a year - I cannot see many of those ever being notable, and I've seen similar stuff elsewhere. - Sitush (talk) 04:49, 19 July 2012 (UTC)
(edit conflict)For such "hardworking" personalities we usually have a small list of notable works on their own article but we also keep a separate article that has all works. Eg: Rajnikanth#Notable_filmography and Rajinikanth filmography. Similar is the case for Hollywood; Meryl_Streep#Selected_filmography and Meryl Streep filmography. Ofcourse this will be seen only in well-maintained articles. For "not-so-hardworking" personalities we include all works, notable or not, on their own article. As to your IMDb's point i agree. Our workforce needs to buckle up & start adding inline citations to all entries from reliable sources. §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 04:56, 19 July 2012 (UTC)
Oh! For B grade films.... that did not cross my mind now. Well.... Most of the stuff on actor's article has to be kept under the pressure of fans. You remove, they add it back. (Some fans keeps updating the date of release of future films in these tables; ofcourse unsourced. They even come up with exact date of 2013. They also insist on adding if the film is currently in pre-production, filming, editing or casting stage. Glad they don't know all stages of film making.) Back to your point; it needs to be sourced, no matter what. If the sourced list is still long, we can create a separate article. I doubt that will happen. §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 05:03, 19 July 2012 (UTC)
(edit conflict) Hm. So combining your point with SpacemanSpiff's, a separate article listing mostly unsourced, unlinked B-grade movies would be ok? Wow. This is a weird world and that is another reason to add to my growing list of why I really, really should stop wasting my time on Wikipedia and go do something useful with my life. I really cannot see me being around come December. - Sitush (talk) 05:06, 19 July 2012 (UTC)
Ah. Seen your addendum now. I should prune things at Dara Singh, then. Alas, there is currently a debate regarding how much more I can do on that for a few hours. - Sitush (talk) 05:07, 19 July 2012 (UTC)
Its better to visit such articles after the fan-fever has gone. Give it 1-2 weeks. Just cut down extreme hyperboles and peacock feathers. That's the reason i did not debate much with User talk:Yaara dildaara and revert their edits. Also don't go near Rajesh Khanna now. §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 05:13, 19 July 2012 (UTC)
If I come across much more of this crap then I won't be around in a couple of weeks! Honestly, this place is just going really wrong, really fast. I know that there has been a perceived long-term decline but there are suddenly a host of regulars in the India sphere who are mulling the idea of moving on. Given how poor the sphere is in the first place, the crazy WMF expansion plans and terrible implementations such as the IEP, if a few such as I walk away then Indic content on Wikipedia really will become a mess. While no-one is indispensable etc, there really isn't much depth here: there are us few regulars (most of whom have large edit counts and a certain mutual respect even in disagreements) and a tidal wave of trouble from which, very occasionally, a surprising piece of flotsam emerges. Is Wikipedia broken? Probably not but the Indic aspect of it may very well soon be. - Sitush (talk) 05:48, 19 July 2012 (UTC)
Oh no! Don't loose hope and give up now. It principally sound wrong, but we have to lower our standards. Not for ever. But at least to get started. Its like we are teaching people. We can not directly start with differential and integration when these people cant do simple multiplication-division. Start with basics like formatting and no-trivia and then move to bigger BLP issues of extra-marital affairs, controversies, religion and caste. It sounds wrong, but it might work. I haven't been much successful yet but it might work. When we go with our brooms and clean everything it annoys them and hence they close their eyes and do not see how a real encyclopedia can be beautiful.
If you are really frustrated, go and edit something different for a while. Keep an eye on your regular articles. Keep coming in 4-5 days and revert all non-sense to the latest version of yours. I will now start cleaning Dara Singh's filmography. §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 06:29, 19 July 2012 (UTC)
I've just had 4/5 days off and it was a nightmare caching up on a 1600 page watchlist. Btw, we are using dmy dates at Singh's article (template at top). - Sitush (talk) 07:27, 19 July 2012 (UTC)

Seen what you are doing and appreciate it greatly. Some of the stuff was in my sights but I am wary of trigger-happy admins seeing a 3RR breach where none exists, as happened to Sodabottle. That encyclopedia of films looks to be very useful. - Sitush (talk) 11:02, 19 July 2012 (UTC)

Oh yeah! That Gulzar and others' Encyclopedia is a nicely written book. It doesn't simply write about films one by one. But it has era-wise description. Even going by ages it does not simply write about the whole product film, but notes changes that happened by time in music, lyrics, screenwriting, censorship, influences, etc. It also has small biographies of artists. Its real encyclopedia. §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 11:12, 19 July 2012 (UTC)

Peer review 59th National Film Awards

With not significant response received for the PR, what do you think would be the next step? I tried contacting couple of reviewers other than INB, who had worked on academy award FLs but did not get any reply at all. So now shall we push it for FL (Does not matter for me even if it fails!) or inform at WP:INB? - Vivvt • (Talk) 13:45, 23 July 2012 (UTC)

Put it for FL. Someone will have to review it then. We did our best from the PR. Anything remaining there? They said rephrase sentences. But which? Everyone will have some sort of phrasing in mind. How are we to guess that and strike bingo? Put it now and it will start in a month or so. §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 13:54, 23 July 2012 (UTC)
I don't think anything is remaining but then we are the editors so we may not find anything. Article has already started giving me a limbo feeling!! Lets push it for FL. Que Sera, Sera... - Vivvt • (Talk) 14:03, 23 July 2012 (UTC)
That alt on the article is funny. Why would somebody add like that??? - Vivvt • (Talk) 14:04, 23 July 2012 (UTC)
Right! I said that in the PR. People should say more than "improve it". But i guess no one even read that.
Hey! Alt is supposed to be for the people who can't see image. That way the alt should describe the image. See WP:ALT. For Denmark's flag they give example of "alt=A red flag divided into four by a white cross slightly offset to the left." §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 14:09, 23 July 2012 (UTC)
Btw, i cant see that alt coming up when i move the pointer on it. I mean for Chatterjee's and Logo's image. But i can see it on gallery's all images. Whats wrong? Can you see it? §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 14:11, 23 July 2012 (UTC)

Hey Animesh, I saw that the article of upper krishna project was in a pathetic state with no single ref, I am trying to improve it but I could only find 2 links with some good information(although its a very ambitious project,I grew up reading about it). My question is can we use the data/tables from KBJNL in the article without altering it? KBJNL is a nodal agency created to implement this project.--sarvajna (talk) 18:55, 25 July 2012 (UTC)

We have to use the data/tables from that source without altering it. But i know that you this very well. So please tell me where have i not understood you. §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 19:25, 26 July 2012 (UTC)
I just wanted to confirm, moreover KBJNL is a govt agency created to implement this project so I just wanted to know your opinion once -sarvajna (talk) 01:59, 27 July 2012 (UTC)
Oh! So you wanted to know if the source can be considered as reliable because it sort of becomes self-published? Well... these are just numbers and government data would be considered as reliable here even though it is self published. But in case there is another source, say some newspaper or something contradicting it, or Maharashtra government putting some different figures then too we should put all figures clearly stating which source says what. §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 07:49, 27 July 2012 (UTC)

Hello, When we nominate articles for afd from a same Album or Film, can't we add those to a single page; so it would be easy for users to vote. And when we sure about notability issue, for articles like Tera Deedar Hua, Paisa paisa, Dil Jale; won't the wp:PROD process more appropriate and easy than Afd. Thabnk you! -- ɑηsuмaη ʈ ᶏ ɭ Ϟ 16:37, 26 July 2012 (UTC)

Oh yes! We can do that. I should have done it that way. But i simply used Twinkle and it does not give such option. Lazy me!!
And yes! PROD would be easy too. But recently i have had experiences with fans, SPAs, etc. and PRODs are just easily dePRODed by these SPAs and IPs. I simply waste my 2-3 days hoping it works and then some ip comes and removes it without even giving reason. Even if we are not aware of any logical reason that this IP has, we sure know that someone out there doesn't want this article to be deleted for whatsoever reason. Hence i have started going for the final kill. But i suppose that too doesn't always work. §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 19:37, 26 July 2012 (UTC)
Hmmm, then its better to just merge if needed and Redirect (clear cases).   -- ɑηsuмaη ʈ ᶏ ɭ Ϟ 09:17, 27 July 2012 (UTC)
Practically yes! That would be a time saver. But i don't like that also. That way we will have plenty useless random Hindi lines redirecting to various Hindi film articles. §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 09:26, 27 July 2012 (UTC)
(talk page stalker)Why cant you revert dePROD by anon? It would anyway restore the same time. I am loosing hope on AfD and RfD anyway.
Quoting from WP:PROD, "You are encouraged, but not required, to also: Explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion" and "If anyone, including the article creator, removes a proposed deletion tag from an article, do not replace it, even if the tag was apparently removed in bad faith". and blah blah. All in all, AfD is/was the best solution. §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 12:12, 27 July 2012 (UTC)
I had gone thru this so I know it does not help. - Vivvt • (Talk) 12:53, 27 July 2012 (UTC)
See! They redirected this. As if someone is gonna type "Beautiful" and then start bracket and then type "Bombay Rockers song" and then close the bracket. And all of this has to be EXACTLY like this. Even if bracket is square, it won't work. Even if apostrophe is added after Rockers (which grammatically should be added), it won't work. Even if song's S is capital, it won't work. They don't call Admins cranky for no reason. §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 13:13, 27 July 2012 (UTC)

Merger close

Any plans to take a look at this? Secret of success (talk) 13:08, 27 July 2012 (UTC)

One support, one weak support, one neutral and two opposes. I don't know how to close it. I am also waiting on following mergers for lack of opinions or no clear consensus.
You can of course ask some Admin to close them atleast as "No Consensus" if needed. I don't find myself fit for that. §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 13:21, 27 July 2012 (UTC)
Well, the admin will only close the discussion, and someone else has to merge the content (a notice will be left on top depicting the consensus). Secret of success (talk) 13:29, 27 July 2012 (UTC)
Oh right! It did not strike me before. I guess that's the reason why Merger proposals don't get listed anywhere in any alerts. Then Admins will have to merge the articles if there is such consensus.
I don't mind actually merging if the result is so deduced by someone else. §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 13:35, 27 July 2012 (UTC)
Ok then. I'll do it. Do you know the name of the template which is used to close merger discussions? Secret of success (talk) 13:43, 27 July 2012 (UTC)
Is there any specific template for that? Don't know. I have been doing it this way. §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 13:50, 27 July 2012 (UTC)
As it was mostly uncontroversial, I've done it. Please do the needful. Secret of success (talk) 14:07, 27 July 2012 (UTC)

Hahahah! Sad to know that you feel lonely. But good to know that you can now work on some articles. If interested, in continuation of cleaning of TV serials, you can start cleaning TV actors. They are filled with all sorts of gossips. Even if famous and truly notable, their articles are all mess. Or else there is one big task that all Film editors have to start soon. Refer the discussion "Filmographies" just above here User_talk:Animeshkulkarni#Filmographies. All entries of filmographies need to be sourced. Especially for actors who have worked in lesser known and B-grade films.

If there are no sources, we can't do anything about that. Also there is a fairly good chance that those things didn't actually happen and hence there are no sources for it. Also somethings are so trivial and gossipy, even if sourced they will be removed for not being encyclopedic. §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 08:01, 2 August 2012 (UTC)

Agree with Animesh this is obviously a fan made website(see page bottom). however the Stardust interviews etc can be used as a reference from a mirror source (WP:Mirror) provided, the website has not changed the articles before publishing. That site is not very reliable consider looking for other sources wherever applicable.--DBigXray 11:43, 2 August 2012 (UTC)


No it was not that I was indulging in glorification of Rajesh Khanna. I had only mentioned the missing fact which particular user terms it glorification! I had put the reference of Here Shabana herself acknowledges that they had together as a pair 7 successful films. They formed a great pair onscreen in eighties - Surprising that even with references, some people start bullying and remove facts!Shabana acted with many actors but that were not successful at box office. Naseruddin Shah and Rajesh Khanna were the only actors with whom she had successful on screen pairing in more than a film.Onceshook1 (talk) 14:05, 28 July 2012 (UTC)

A great and grand success....

  Moment of Joy!
What brought me to Wikipedia was the lack of information in the article of Meera. In mid-April 2012, after spending nearly 3 and a half months, I planned to add to those article which are seldom edited by others. Those included the Nawabs of Bengal & Murshidabad, articles related to it and soap opera articles. Soap operas are ongoing so I have to edit them daily but the article on the Nawabs is a piece of history...and I took up the work alone. Later, in May some editors helped me to fix typos and grammatical errors, but soon withdrew back their help. But, by God's grace I finished with the work today on 4 August 2012 and would love to share this success with you! My condition was same as the flying man in the pic, trying to catch a several things at the same time before it's too late. I don't know whether he succeeds or not, bu I did succeed! However, I still have to add some references and summarize the plots of soap opera articles in the soap opera articles. If you want, then you can help. Thank you for all who helped me all these days...thank you again! --Tamravidhir(২০১২) 11:29, 4 August 2012 (UTC)

inre Paisa Paisa

Your points about the term being abiguous were well made, and I had absolutely no expectation that the AFD would close as no consensus. That deed being done, I would have no issue with it being renominated in a month or two. In the meantime, I moved the article to a more precise title Paisa Paisa (2009 song) to address your concerns about other uses of the term by films, musical artists, or game shows... and then set up a proper dab page at Paisa Paisa (disambiguation). I do not expect any new artcles, and would be surprised if any came forward... except maybe for the game show. But at least now anyone wondering how and where the term is used will know. Rather than await a second AFD, I think a bold redirect of the surviving Paisa Paisa (2009 song) to the De Dana Dan article at its theme song section would likely not find any opposition, and the dab page will send readers to whatever other articles exist with the term Paisa Paisa set in context. Shall I be bold and see what shakes out of the trees? Schmidt, MICHAEL Q. 00:58, 5 August 2012 (UTC)

Done. Let's see. Schmidt, MICHAEL Q. 21:10, 5 August 2012 (UTC)
Thank you MichaelQSchmidt for your help in adding a DAB page, Although you were dealing with a foreign language phrase your comments at the AFD are sensible and I fully agree with them. @Animesh people do expect to get a content for such things. The song Paisa paisa may be non notable by wiki standards, (Although notability for Indian/bollywood songs is not yet defined) but it is clearly a popular song. so Michael's solution was indeed appreciable.--DBigXray 22:09, 5 August 2012 (UTC)
The way I determine, when a DAb page serves the readers it is not always limited to only those topics with articles. Schmidt, MICHAEL Q. 03:26, 6 August 2012 (UTC)


Hi AK. Looks like the discussion was closed. Re your question, an interview article of the DNA sort essentially just quotes the author and. in that sense, is not independent. I don't remember the Indian Express article but suspect it was along the same lines. Ideally, we would like to see several independent sources discuss the book before it is worth writing up an article. --regentspark (comment) 21:01, 7 August 2012 (UTC)

I have worked day and night to reach my goal which is not far away. I am done. I may hardly sit on the net and log in here and remove vandalism and update soap opera articles. But when I will not be there what will happen? I am saying this as there is no one else who keep vandalism away from those articles. I am alone and if I will not be there it is gone. I have asked many users for help but in vain. I hope a yes from you.

विकिपरियोजना भारतीय टेलीविजन

I saw your Hindi language userbox and thought that you might want to join us and our wikiproject on the Hindi Wikipedia. On the English wikipedia you have put tons of good work into Indian television related articles, and it would be great if you could do the same for the Hindi Wikipedia!:) our articles are in very poor condition and could use some help -even if its a few edits once in a while. I really hope that you will join us.
--Farah Desai Khan** (talk) 20:28, 11 August 2012 (UTC)

Thats okay! Better late than never.  
But now i don't edit TV serial related articles. Just biographies maybe. Although i speak, read and write Hindi i wouldn't bother myself with typing it. That's quite cumbersome. But thanks for the offer. Am sure there are better editors on Hindi Wikipedia who would help. Good Luck with the new project.
And btw, isn't television called दूरदर्शन in Hindi? §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 20:46, 11 August 2012 (UTC)

I guess दूरदर्शन is the proper word, but टेलीविजन is more used and accepted in the Hindi wiki, -maybe because nobody has challenged it yet. Our biographies on actors and actresses are also in poor condition, and we don't have much of them in hindi. As for typing, I also thought it would be a bummer, but I use this, it really helps, you can download it onto your computer and you can set it to automatically convert Latin to Devanagari, maybe you could try it. Anyway there are editors on the English wiki that edit Indian television articles, but their language, grammar and syntax is poor and I believe it would be better for them to edit in hindi, even if you don't join our project, I would really really appreciate it if you direct them to it :) --Farah Desai Khan** (talk) 21:26, 11 August 2012 (UTC)

I recently nominated Nawabs of Bengal & Murshidabad for GA but the review has still not started. We still have time. I would like you to edit the article and drive it to the path of GA. Please help me, it will be so kind of you. It will also add one number to the total number of GA article Wikipedia has. Please help me! If replying please leave me a talk-back template. I have asked some other editors for the same. Thank you  ! Tamravidhir(২০১২) 12:48, 13 August 2012 (UTC)

Thank you Sujit for your interest in assessment related activities, but as i have seen your edits I feel that you are a new editor who needs some more experinece about the policies here. I am sure you will make a good contributor. May i also suggest you to seek WP:Adoption by an admin or an experienced user, he will help you a lot and guide you about how things go around here.

AFC Backlog

Articles for Creation urgently needs YOUR help!

Articles for Creation is desperately short of reviewers! We are looking for urgent help, from experienced editors, in reviewing submissions in the pending submissions queue. Currently there are 3822 submissions waiting to be reviewed and many help requests at our Help Desk.

Do you have what it takes?
  1. Are you familiar with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines?
  2. Do you know what Wikipedia is and is not?
  3. Do you have a working knowledge of the Manual of Style, particularly article naming conventions?
  4. Are you autoconfirmed?
  5. Can you review submissions based on their individual merits?

If the answer to these questions is yes, then please read the reviewing instructions and donate a little of your time to helping tackle the backlog. You might wish to add {{AFC status}} or {{AfC Defcon}} to your userpage, which will alert you to the number of open submissions.

PS: we have a great AFC helper script at User:Timotheus Canens/afchelper4.js which helps in reviewing in just few edits easily!

We would greatly appreciate your help. Currently, only a small handful of users are reviewing articles. Any help, even if it's just 2 or 3 reviews, it would be extremely beneficial.
On behalf of the Articles for Creation project,
TheSpecialUser TSU

I think that you were previously interested in AFC. Right now, it is backlogged and needs help, perhaps, I thought that you might be doing few reviews :) TheSpecialUser TSU 06:44, 18 August 2012 (UTC)

I wasn't interested in reviewing. But do i alone review a certain article (like GA review) or will other editors be meddling and re-reviewing my review? §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 10:55, 20 August 2012 (UTC)
It is just like GA but much easy. Most of the submissions are clear decline. There won't be anyone who'll review your review. TheSpecialUser TSU 08:11, 21 August 2012 (UTC)
That would be a relief. Will keep this AFC option in mind. But can't get to it just now. §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 08:45, 21 August 2012 (UTC)

Your request for rollback

Hi Animeshkulkarni. After reviewing your request for rollback, I have enabled rollback on your account. Keep in mind these things when going to use rollback:

  • Getting rollback is no more momentous than installing Twinkle.
  • Rollback should be used to revert clear cases of vandalism only, and not good faith edits.
  • Rollback should never be used to edit war.
  • If abused, rollback rights can be revoked.
  • Use common sense.

If you no longer want rollback, contact me and I'll remove it. Also, for some more information on how to use rollback, see Wikipedia:New admin school/Rollback (even though you're not an admin). I'm sure you'll do great with rollback, but feel free to leave me a message on my talk page if you run into troubles or have any questions about appropriate/inappropriate use of rollback. Thank you for helping to reduce vandalism. Happy editing! —SpacemanSpiff 14:25, 24 August 2012 (UTC)

I know you didn't request it, but it's easier than Twinkle and you show a need for it. Use it per policy! If you don't want it, let me know and I'll remove it. cheers. —SpacemanSpiff 14:25, 24 August 2012 (UTC)

Extra thanks for giving these rights without asking for. As of now i don't know how i will use them. Twinkle was all very fine. Lets see. Will discover something. §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 14:56, 24 August 2012 (UTC)
Just wondering, if WP:AGF is a fundamental principle here, why don't all editors have Admin privileges by default? And as and when angels start falling they can loose their powers. §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 15:39, 24 August 2012 (UTC)
Well, rollback is good when you come across vandalism on your watchlist, and you don't have to go click on the diff to actually revert, it's generally useful on a lot of the actor/actress articles of which I'm sure you have a lot on your watchlist. I also just saw that you don't have a custom skin, you can install WP:US/S to make some activity easier -- some are available only on vector, some only on monobook and some on all skins. As for your other question, WT:RfA and its archives. —SpacemanSpiff 18:55, 24 August 2012 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) Just curious to know what makes these rights different than Twinkle for roll-backing? - Vivvt • (Talk) 16:03, 25 August 2012 (UTC)
I personally found nothing yet. Twinkle + Popups = Rockback. §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 16:05, 25 August 2012 (UTC)

Pankaj Biswas

Got your message. Please be assured that the previous version that I reverted back had nothing to do with Kapoor, and everything to do with Biswas. Some anonymous contributor had previously blanked the page prior to my edit. GhanaDa (talk) 17:12, 27 August 2012 (UTC)

Who is Pankaj Biswas? We never had any article on that title. You directly moved Kapur to Biswas for no reason. §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 19:51, 27 August 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: Pankaj Biswas

Hello Animeshkulkarni. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Pankaj Biswas, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: Not a recently created redirect - consider WP:RfD. Thank you. — Malik Shabazz Talk/Stalk 20:56, 27 August 2012 (UTC)

Sonam Kapoor

I would like to just say that this was not exactly a fair edit. The other user GrewalJ (talk · contribs) is right, that DP of Kapoor is way back from 2007, and as per WP:BIO, the most recent high-resolution image must be used. Although I do agree the article had become an imagepedia after his edit. I personally removed some of the images since as per MOS:IMAGE, they should not be used for decorative purposes even if they are free. Cheers and happy editing and lets not get into edit wars over this silly thing.  Indian:BIO · [ ChitChat ] 05:16, 28 August 2012 (UTC)

Sure! Put a satellite picture taken by NASA in her infobox because it is high resolution and latest. Why should her face be clearly seen there? People can zoom in and see her. And thank god for the "latest" pic. Or else no one would recognize her.
And i dont edit war. If you revert my edit and add even Shakti Kapoor's image over there, i wont care. §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 05:51, 28 August 2012 (UTC)
You do know the silliness of what you just wrote right? File:Sonam graces IIJW 2012 finale.jpg is indeed of quite high resolution and combined with the fact that its recent also. One of the perks of using a high-resolution image is that because it is expected reader's will zoom in on an image and check it out. Why do you think commons exist as a separate repository? So that our readers can check out the actual version. Like it or not, consensus has always been for the recent most high-resolution picture for any character, person, cat etc. I was just explaining it to you, it's upto you to take it or leave it. Cheers again, —Indian:BIO · [ ChitChat ] 09:23, 28 August 2012 (UTC)

Indian Television Academy Awards

I noticed that practically every article related to the ITA Awards was created or primarily edited by Noormohammed satya and his many socks (and in some cases Vibhas Kashyap & co. as well), so have therefore nominated them for deletion on the grounds that they're probably non-notable and promotional in nature. See Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Indian Television Academy Awards. As you have shown an interest in these articles in the past (even if it's only basic maintenance) perhaps you have the knowledge required to judge which of them, if any, cover genuinely notable topics. I had an honest go at finding secondary sources but couldn't separate out the promotional cruft from genuine unbiased news coverage (if there is any). —Psychonaut (talk) 22:22, 28 August 2012 (UTC)

Commented. Thanks for the note. Don't expect much of a turnout with delete or keep or whatever opinions. Also i don't think any socks/SPAs would show. They just don't bother. After deletion they simply recreate the article in some days. §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 11:20, 29 August 2012 (UTC)

Hi Animesh, is there any chance of you taking a look at recent goings-on with Deswa. I have just restored to an old version because recent contributions seem to contradict prior sourced content etc. I am wondering if this is either a hijack by PR people or perhaps an instance of two movies having the same title. Either way, it is not really something that I know much about and mine is a fleeting visit (I've been off-wiki for a while with a crisis of conscience, and am likely to be again very shortly!). Thanks. - Sitush (talk) 00:23, 7 September 2012 (UTC)

Your old revision is right. There could be some other movie too. But i couldn't find anything like that. All refs are about this film itself. (Crisis of conscience and other stuffs. I am seeing lot of those lately. Whatever be the reason, many editors are getting away from editing. Is this viral?) §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 13:24, 8 September 2012 (UTC)

Deswa concerns

Dear Animesh Kulkarni Sir. How are you doing ? I understand that you dont know that Deswa is not released yet. I am the director and one of the producers of the film. We released it in 9 theaters in Bihar, so as to make it eligible for National Award. Deswa is not a regular bhojpuri film. It is first bhojpuri film to go to several International Film Festivals. We have a hindi version also. We are struggling to release the film. But this page is damaging our prospects, as you you have written negative about it. As a film enthusiast you would also know that revealing the suspense of the film in the synopsis is not in favour of the film.

I would request you to kindly remove the part where you have revealed the naxal suspense and also dont use term as lukewarm and low-key because its not your prerogative to decide the fate of the film and performance of the actors without seeing the film which is not even released all over. If you are in any other doubt please call me on 09819943282.

A barnstar for you!

  The Copyeditor's Barnstar
Dear Sir. The change in Deswa page still reveals that the guy who was kidnapped is a Naxalite, that is the main suspense of the film. In the Reception section, the quote is misleading for those who are waiting for the film. Also, this is first bhojpuri film to be selected in various International film festivals like South Asian Film Festival Goa, Ahemdabad International Film Festival, Habitat World Film Festival, New Delhi and Govt of Bihar selected this film as one of the top 8 films in last 50 years of Bhojpuri Cinema. Kindly mention this also, so that our efforts will be appreciated. Kindly go through the youtube links to see the promos and also there are more than 200 media articles about the film. Kindly put those also on Deswa page. Nitinchandra25 (talk) 04:54, 10 September 2012 (UTC)

Hi again, I'd like to ask what the convention is on Indian articles for awards with two names. I'd like to use both in section titles thus: "Swarna Kamal (Golden Lotus Award)" - so only one version needs to remain in the prose. Secondly, should I give preference to the official title Swarna Kamal or the English title Golden Lotus Award in prose? Or perhaps I shouldn't change this. I've consulted the MOS but can't find a relevant policy. Thanks, Baffle gab1978 (talk) 04:09, 20 September 2012 (UTC)

There is no fixed convention as such. Other Indian film awards (eg Filmfare Awards) use only one title, which is English as they don't have any Indic titles. For other non-filmy Indian awards, like Padma Bhushan, there is no English title and hence only Indic title is used.
This is the first time anyone is really reviewing this article. Hence we dont have any rule. But media and the actual awards use the Hindi titles. English titles are mere translations. ||Dharmadhyaksha|| {T/C} 04:43, 20 September 2012 (UTC)
Thank you; I think it's probably best to leave this alone - but if I see any variants I'll standardise on the dominant version and leave section titles as they are. :-) Cheers, Baffle gab1978 (talk) 20:37, 20 September 2012 (UTC)

No because his wife withdrew her complaint and instead gave a reason that she broke her arm in an accident and burns on her body were due to a cooking accident. --sarvajna (talk) 09:27, 27 September 2012 (UTC)

I understand the point you are trying to make however this is not some minor incident, significant coverage was given and the person's wife had given a statement about violence only to retract it later. There were other incidents like the actor's fans going on rampage among other things. It is a noteable incident. --sarvajna (talk) 09:38, 27 September 2012 (UTC)
Yes, but it is controversial and it amounted to nothing because the claim was withdrawn. Highlighting something that effectively amounted to nothing other than a popular frenzy is contrary to BLP and also undue weight. Some might even call it muckraking. At least, that is how I usually see such situations handled. You could always query this interpretation at WP:BLPN but until this is determined, the question of the reliability etc of local rags is somewhat irrelevant. - Sitush (talk) 09:46, 27 September 2012 (UTC)

I never heard of the case myself. (I don't mean it is trivial. Its just that i don't follow South Indian film stars.) But as Sarvajna says if the incident was much talked about, there would be refs in notable newspapers of it. If his wife had officially registered a complaint with Police or other authorities and then retracted it, both things can go in the biography. Make sure that it goes in a single sentence so as to not give any undue weightage by stretching it beyond limits and also not giving half impression in case people are reading only single sentences. §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {T/C} 11:08, 27 September 2012 (UTC)

It is a one year old news, we were discussing about domestic violence and saw that there is nothing written about Darshan on wikipedia, a simple google search for "Darshan wife beating" will give you good number of links.--sarvajna (talk) 16:13, 27 September 2012 (UTC)
Did you want to include this example in the article Domestic violence? §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {T/C} 09:32, 28 September 2012 (UTC)
Not really, nothing has been proven yet also forgot to mention although the actor's wife wanted to withdrew the complaint the Judge did not allow that. The actor is on bail as far as I know. I just wanted to update the page of the actor with this detail. --sarvajna (talk) 10:07, 28 September 2012 (UTC)
So if the case is already filed and he is on bail, i wouldn't object this inclusion on his article. What say Sitush? §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {T/C} 10:16, 28 September 2012 (UTC)
I'd like to see some recent sources that say this, not stuff from six months ago etc. As with Wikipedia articles, newspapers often report the start of an alleged scandal etc but then lose interest and don't report the outcome unless it prolongs the issue. So, they might report that he was bailed but not that it was later rescinded. There is also the issue of the incredibly lengthy and complex legal process in India, which makes tracking stuff difficult. This really is dodgy territory and I would encourage you to take it to the BLP noticeboard. I wouldn't have a problem if there was a report saying that he had been found guilty, but until then I think the general rule is that we err on the side of caution for the reasons that I have stated. - Sitush (talk) 10:23, 28 September 2012 (UTC)

I don't know anything about those American shows. Maybe they show average scores. Maybe they use it somehow in determining elimination. As the average scores are not considered in JDJ, they are useless. No Original Research Here! Just because someone else is adding them on other articles does not mean it should be added here too. As it is not relevant, it will be deleted. §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {T/C} 06:38, 16 October 2012 (UTC)
No they dont use it to determine elimination in Dancing with the stars too. It's not even consistent. Some of their articles have them some don't. Out of 14 seasons only 8 have them. LOL.

  • Hello there. I saw this because of the comments by both of you on my user talk page, and I thought I would comment. I don't know enough about this specific situation to know whether we should include averages or not; however, Wikipedia policy is not crystal clear on this. If you read down near the bottom of the no original research policy, you will see that there is a section on routine calculations. This says the following:

Routine calculations do not count as original research. Basic arithmetic, such as adding numbers, converting units, or calculating a person's age, is allowed provided there is consensus among editors that the calculation is an obvious, correct, and meaningful reflection of the sources.

So, to me, this is not so much a matter of whether it counts as original research or not, as the policy allows this kind of calculation. Rather, it is a matter of whether there is a consensus to include this kind of calculation in the specific articles in question. To find this out we will need to talk about it, and possibly ask uninvolved editors for their opinion. Have you discussed this on any article talk pages? If you have, it would be very useful if you could give me a link to the discussions. Best regards — Mr. Stradivarius on tour (have a chat) 06:37, 17 October 2012 (UTC)

Thanks Mr. S for your views. But i am not interested in taking up this discussion on talk pages. If Imtitanium and other editors want to keep it, let them have it.

I am a bit concerned about the huge number of edits made recently at Amitabh Bachchan.

Separate articles are not needed for such small content. I have tagged it with WP:CSD. If admins find it worth deleting, don't recreate it again.

The right way to split a page is to develop it in the current article and then take it out separately. You are welcome to expand the section in the main article. When done with that, your split would be justified. As of now, its just a tracklist and few critics giving stars. §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {T/C} 15:58, 18 October 2012 (UTC)


Thanks for the support at Indian Postal Service.

Well... you aren't loosing any quality stuff. Mukesh, Hemant Kumar, Asha-Lata, RD, Gulzar and others have left enough for us to last life long. So don't worry.
There had been a discussion on stand-alone song articles at WT:INCINE but with no conclusion on what should be done. I and few others had also taken many articles to AFD, but they weren't completely deleted, only redirected because WP:Redirects are cheap. If this continues, you might find yourself at some film's page after typing any random Hindi sentence. I wasn't very happy with that decision and hence i stopped bothering myself with it.

Hey, are you sure about the sentence saying that he edited 300,000 feet to 20,000 feet? The given source (Sholay, the Making of a Classic) does not appear to mention these numbers. The maximum length of the reel mentioned is 21,000 feet. Secret of success (talk) 13:41, 26 October 2012 (UTC)

You are right. I was wrong about 20K then. But i did change it to 21K.

New Page Patrolling

Hi. Thank you for patrolling new pages. When tagging pages for speedy deletion please be sure to to use only the clearly defined criteria. If a page does not meet a criterion, please consider PROD, BLPPROD, or AfD. For more information please see WP:NPP and WP:DELETION. Thanks. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 09:38, 5 November 2012 (UTC).


Hi! Remember me? I am Jagadhatri, now known as Tamravidhir. I like your new name. Thank for all your contributions. I need your help. 3 months back I nominated Nawabs of Bengal and Murshidabad for GA and now it is a GA, but I want to nominate an article for DYK but all my articles are old. Please help? --Tamravidhir (Jiva Is Shiva!) 08:19, 7 November 2012 (UTC)

Ofcourse i remember. For DYKs you have to nominate an article that is not more than 5 days old. <<OR>> You can expand old article 5 times. <<OR>> If the article is an unsourced BLP, 2 times expansion is also allowed. Note: In expansion, only prose needs to be expanded. Expansion in tables in not counted. And for newly created article, minimum 1500 characters are required in the prose. Also all these expansions are only on the prose section and not on formatting, or references, or other hidden texts. Bottom line is, it is a tough job to expand and nominate a DYK. Easy way would be to create a new article itself. Start working in sandbox or userspace and take as much as you want in there. When the article is ready, move it to the article space. Your 5 days time limit starts after the move to the article space. §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {T/C} 08:30, 7 November 2012 (UTC)

Caste in BLPs and Lists

Please see this discussion Wikipedia_talk:Noticeboard_for_India-related_topics#Caste_identification — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sreejiraj (talkcontribs) 19:50, 31 December 2012 (UTC)

Re your comments on Indian TV articles in general (at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Bigg Boss 6 (2nd nomination) and elsewhere), perhaps blacklisting links to some of the more popular but utterly non-reliable user forum/social networking sites would somewhat stem the tide of poorly sourced fancruft and copyvios. It's not uncommon, for example, for users to copy and paste huge chunks of text from into Wikipedia articles and include a link to same, or alternatively for them to add apparently original wikitext but supported by inline references to If the blacklist were to automatically reject such submissions, one of three things might happen:

  1. The user might simply give up and go away. Hooray; we don't need to deal with the copyvios and unsourced or poorly sourced material in this case.
  2. The user might strip the links to, leaving only the text, and resubmit the edit. This doesn't help us in the case of copyvios, but it at least makes it a bit easier to identify and then tag and/or revert unsourced material.
  3. The user might get a clue and find better sources for the material they want to post.

Partly for these reasons I've proposed a new blacklist entry at MediaWiki Feel free to comment. —Psychonaut (talk) 07:58, 9 November 2012 (UTC)

This is a nice idea. I suppose that adding a blacklisted link does not allow you to save the edit. But does it send some kinda alert somewhere? Do we get some notification? Or do we simply use this search option? §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {T/C} 08:53, 9 November 2012 (UTC)
Also, will some bot automatically remove these links? Or should we start manually doing that? §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {T/C} 09:01, 9 November 2012 (UTC)
If you try to submit any edit which contains a link to a site on the blacklist, it will be rejected with a message that explains the problem. (I won't reproduce the message here because it's too long; you can see it yourself if you go to your sandbox and try to add an external link to a blacklisted site, such as I don't think there is any log kept of attempts to add blacklisted sites. Also, the blacklist extension does not automatically remove existing links to blacklisted sites; it only prevents people from adding links in the future. Existing links to blacklisted sites need to be removed manually on a case-by-case basis. —Psychonaut (talk) 09:35, 9 November 2012 (UTC)
I see! Will work on removing all links after i am back from break. §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {T/C} 11:54, 9 November 2012 (UTC)
Thanks. But don't just remove the links to the forum posts; please also remove any questionable information for which such posts were serving as a reference, particularly in biographies of living persons. Zero information is preferable to misleading or false information. Personally I'd wait until the site's blacklisting is approved before removing any links, since in my experience someone usually tries to add the reference back again. —Psychonaut (talk) 12:15, 9 November 2012 (UTC) has now been added to the spam blacklist so you and I and anyone else who wishes can begin cleanup of the existing links. —Psychonaut (talk) 09:05, 13 November 2012 (UTC)
Okay! Will start working on them; not like a mission, but slowly and steadily. §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {T/C} 04:37, 19 November 2012 (UTC)

References made to the articles posted on by their reporters are also banned? So will the same be happening for other forum/fan/"news" sites such as and etc. That will probably lead to a lot of reduction in content on the TV pages if that's the case, because other reliable sources are few and far between. (I tended to avoid them normally anyway) Coolcool2012(talk to me) 09:27, 7 December 2012 (UTC)

Is there any such section at India-forum that is controlled by editors? Even if there was one, that has hardly been used in references over here. Most of the contributions came from user's inputs to the forums.'s articles seems good as of now. Just as good as TOI's. (That's not a compliment to Tellychakkar.) Hence i dont find it necessary to get it blacklisted. Of course, if anyone comes across a reference that links to a forum section of this website, it should be removed. Just like how is not used a Reliable Source, but is even though both are in Yahoo! domain.
I have used Tellychakkar many times. But i haven't come across yet. In case you have your doubts regarding both sources, you can raise it at WP:RSN. §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {T/C} 10:07, 7 December 2012 (UTC)

Vidya Balan

Hi Dharmadhyaksha. Thank you for the constructive ideas that you put forward on the Vidya Balan nomination page. They were of great help indeed. However, some of the ideas were a bit controversial (like praising Rani Mukerji and mentioning Balan's appearances in reality shows), and hence I didn't mention them. Having said that, I thank you for pointing such points out. Personally, I like both Mukerji and Balan, but I can't edit an article based on personal opinions. (Right?) Anyway, I hope you didn't take my objections the wrong way. I hope we can collaborate on an article soon. Cheers. --S.M.A.R.O.J.I.T (talk) 05:09, 11 November 2012 (UTC)

Blacklisted references

When removing <ref>s using blacklisted links, as you did in this edit, please be sure not to leave orphaned refs behind (e.g. these). An easy way to check is to see if the page ends up in the hidden category Category:Pages with broken reference names after your edit. Thanks! Anomie 11:44, 20 November 2012 (UTC)

Okay! Must have missed it. Thanks for the notice. Will check from next time.

Rather than looking in the category itself, look at the bottom of the page to see if the category shows up. You might need to enable the "Show hidden categories" preference in the Appearance tab in Special:Preferences to see it, though.
And thanks! Anomie 17:21, 20 November 2012 (UTC)

I had raised this long back in 2008. But no support, so did not merge. Actually, the current Murugan article covers all about the pan-Indian Kartikkeya as well as the Tamil Murugan. We can move the article Murugan to Kartikkeya, and at Murugan, create a new article about the Tamil Murugan, before his identification with the Sanskrit Kartikkeya-Skanda.

  This is your first warning. The next time you warn me like this, as you did at Talk, i will complaint to admin. Because it is not an malicious move, the spelling is wrong there. Anyone can boldly move the page because as i said so many times before it's an wrong spelling. Not "gg" it should be "Kajal Agarwal". No need for discussing this small issue in Talk page. Also i have discussed in talk page so many times, stated the reason when i am moving over redirect. That is not an Good faith edit or Vandalism. Mind it.

Of course anyone can boldly move any page. Someone in past has already moved Kajal Aggarwal to Kajal Bitch.

I saw your edit. I was also under the impresion that it was the nose that was cut off but the book refrences I have used in the artcile all mention ear only. This needs to be clarified by a separate sentence in the article. Incidentally, thanks for the suggestions made in the article on Vidyasagar Setu, which is now pending GA review. I have made amends as suggested.

I see. Well then some clarification could really help. But i will still emphasis on nose and not ear. Maybe a side note like "some texts also mention ear" could be added. But that does not change the fact that the image used shows nose being cut and hence the caption is appropriate.  
My suggestions? Which? §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {T/C} 09:37, 13 December 2012 (UTC)
