Hello Materialspsych,
There is line on the page of "https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salil_Gewali" written as "In June 2018, a short documentary on Great Minds on India was released by a Mumbai-based media house - Manthanhub"
I wanted to insert the link of ManthanHub website to mentioned authority "ManthanHub" - https://manthanhub.com/ which is relevant for this information.
But this link was removed from your side. Kindly do needful and revert. Radheshyam More (talk) 07:49, 11 February 2024 (UTC)Reply
(by talk reader) @Radheshyam More: The link was removed because within our article text we don't include links to other websites per WP:ELNO. In fact, some might suspect such links of being spam links to increase traffic to the external site or boost SEO ratings. I would also encourage you to avoid using the phrase "Kindly do needful" as it is increasingly unwelcome. Chris Troutman (talk) 13:36, 11 February 2024 (UTC)Reply

Block and Unexplained Revert


Hello Materialscientist, this is regarding your revert and block of my IP. I'm sorry that you considered my edits to be vandalism. A user other than me converted the redirect to a short article without sources. I reworked the article with a couple of sources in good faith in the intention of creating a short stub; specifically adding Template:Sources exist that it might be saved, and it did feel like Wikipedia:Please do not bite the newcomers on the receiving end. I have created Talk:Zammis Clark, I welcome your input. 2A00:23C4:41A:9601:D5E0:2228:EE57:4951 (talk) 07:39, 10 February 2024 (UTC)Reply

Hi User:Materialscientist I need help with explaining this user User:Bijzindia as he keeps rv every edit in Bigg Boss (Malayalam season 5). I made some edits as there was issues with the page.

Firstly as Bigg Boss comes under Big Brother franchise the format and structure of tables should be consistent right. The user insists on adding entering days of wild cards in the nominations of that particular housemate. But we don鈥檛 use that in any version of Bigg Boss and Big Brother. I even discussed this in a polite way on his talk page with proof of how tables wild cards should be CHECK HERE User talk:Bijzindia#Regarding bigg boss 5. Second in many big brother tables we don鈥檛 add Hosptilised if thr contestant as walked its normally Walked as you can see in Celebrity Big Brother (British series 22)#Housemates and Big Brother (British series 18)#Nominations table

Faridahmadi.itp came to ask me to reduce create protection on this page title but since you set the last level of protection, I directed them here to discuss it with you or suggested that they could try making a request at Wikipedia:Requests for page protection. But mostly, I suggested that they work on a draft version and submit it to AFC for review and, hopefuly, approval.

Replaceable non-free use File:ET007-10.jpg


Thanks for uploading File:ET007-10.jpg. I noticed that this file is being used under a claim of non-free use. However, I think that the way it is being used fails the first non-free content criterion. This criterion states that files used under claims of non-free use may have no free equivalent; in other words, if the file could be adequately covered by a freely-licensed file or by text alone, then it may not be used on Wikipedia. If you believe this file is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and add the text {{Di-replaceable non-free use disputed|<your reason>}} below the original replaceable non-free use template, replacing <your reason> with a short explanation of why the file is not replaceable.
  2. On the file's talk page, write a full explanation of why you believe the file is not replaceable.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification, per the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Vanjagenije (talk) 00:29, 15 March 2024 (UTC)Reply



Unfortunately we have a problem. They have been at this for over 6 months doing number vandalism from many different IPs, some IP4 others IP6, all from Italy, usually changing the heights of things, buildings, mountains etc.. thousands of edits. Blocking does nothing, in fact might be a bad idea as at least we can track them. After a block they shift to a different unknown IP. I've been tracking and reverting for a while. Sadly, I let about a dozen edits sit for a few weeks and nobody reverted them, they were overlooked by the community.

The range of IPs is in the millions, see here (click "Show more.." at bottom). The scale makes tracking impossible, much less blocking. I'm really at a loss what to do because they are causing a lot of hidden damage. -- GreenC 14:54, 17 March 2024 (UTC)Reply

Hotwiki's aggressive behavior


Hi. I would like to consult something about this editor's behavior towards others. This has been going on for several years and a lot of ANI discussions were raised against this user but he only gets "a slap on the wrist" for his aggressive behavior.

Just recently, I got a run-in again with Hotwiki at the Saksi article, restoring texts that he removed because in his opinion, it was "unreferenced". After restoring them, he removed it again and justifying that the information where Mike Enriquez and Vicky Morales were transferred was "trivial", while adding italics on program titles. I restored my edits since there was an agreement before in the last ANI I raised against him that any changes in this article should be discussed in the talk page. Well, you can read the rest of our heated argument at the Saksi talk page and at one point tried to provoke me to revert his edits and be blocked again.

I'm speaking on behalf of other Filipino Wikipedians who have good intentions in editing the articles Hotwiki is trying to gatekeep for several years. If you notice, most of the articles that he gatekeeps have very little or missing information about them. He cuts and removes most of other editor's contributions and dismiss them as "trivial". Checking the Saksi, 24 Oras or Unang Hirit articles alone shows that if you read those articles, you will sense that some information is missing. Not to mention the his behavior in the past when he replaced most of the GMA Network's image title cards and replacing it with the same image that he uploaded.

I have confronted this user several times, and it seems he's just being hard-headed and won't agree on any consensus. What's "right" in his opinion must be followed and the hell other editors' contributions.

What should I do with this? If another ANI will be raised against him, other administrators that have no background or knowledge on his past behavior will just dismiss these accusations and sometimes, the one that is reporting is being gaslit. -WayKurat (talk) 07:16, 31 March 2024 (UTC)Reply

I also need to inform that WayKurat personally attacked me yesterday.[3] From my observation, WayKurat is personally holding a grudge over that article, and him being blocked last September 2023[4], when I reported him to 3RR.

About article "The Dancing Clown"


This article's only two sources are unverifiable print sources that may or may not contain the information they are said to contain. Creator and primary editor of this article attempted to create numerous hoax articles in the past and add false information to articles.

Hello Materialscientist, a while ago you reverted someone who used Summit Racing, saying it was an unreliable source. From my knowledge, it can be considered a reliable source for automotive manufacturing and drag racing/other associated sports. I do not wish for you to take any action, just for you to be cognizant in the future about this.

I need help with my article


Hi fellow scientist! @Materialscientist

I found your site and as a newbie to Wikipedia editing it's super impressive what you've already done here!

For my first article, I thought it would be easiest to take an existing article in my native language (German), translate it, and add additional information. I wrote about Nanoscribe which is part of the BICO group. As a materials scientist you might have heard of them, they make 3D laser microprinters. I made some mistakes at the beginning and didn't realize some problems with citations. But I think I have that pretty well fixed now. I submitted it for review and I've been waiting for several weeks for someone to review it. Could you help me with this? As a newbie, if there are still problems with the article, I would be happy to get your tips聽:)

Gas carbon


Hey Materialscientist,

I wanted to ask your opinion of this, because it's more in your field of expertise. I ran across the article gas carbon some months ago. I was interested because I'd never heard of carbon in a gaseous form before. Upon reading it, however, I'm almost certain what it's describing is coke (fuel), using a very uncommon name. Only one of the three sources actually works, and it's questionable at best. I did some checking through google and google books going back to the 1800s, and found no uses of the name "gas carbon" except for a few websites that appear to have gotten their info from Wikipedia. I started a discussion on the talk page, but got no replies.

My first thought is that it should be merged with the coke article, but that article already covers everything in the gas-carbon article in far more detail. Since the term "gas carbon" doesn't seem to have ever been used historically, I'm thinking now that maybe it would be better to simply delete the article, since the title implies a gaseous form of carbon. This confusion seems to be reflected in these redirect discussions: here and here. But I'm not sure what would be the best solution, so I wanted to ask for your expert opinion on the matter.

If you have some time, could you please take a quick peek? Thanks. Zaereth (talk) 21:11, 23 May 2024 (UTC)Reply block


Hi Materialscientist, I tried to edit a page on Hunted Australia (I think) on the ip last year August, apparently I now have a two year block from editing Wikipedia (ends in August 2025). I didn't vandalise the page and I don't know why you blocked me. Please clarify Thanks Trainandbus123 (talk) 01:01, 28 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

@Trainandbus123 I'm not Materialscientist (nor an admin), but I can tell you what's probably happened. IP addresses are sometimes used simultaneously by multiple users. If that IP address gets a block, it will affect not just the editor that needed to be blocked, but also all the other users on that network. I typed the User: address into my Wikipedia search bar, and it looks like the block is set to affect logged-out (i.e. anonymous) users only, so I wouldn't worry about it, especially since you have an account. Just log into that and you can continue editing as normal!聽:) In fact, you should stay logged in and not make some edits logged-out unless you have a good reason to, according to Wikipedia's multiple accounts policy.
By the way, in the case that the block on your IP address prevents you from being able to edit from your account also, you can get around this by requesting IP block exemption!聽:) 鈥斅AP聽499D25 (talk) 08:41, 2 June 2024 (UTC)Reply

There is not a single word about 芦city states禄 on official site, only advertisemens of new game on franchise, i find Reddit about how to rename vanilla name of Kiev https://www.reddit.com/r/civ/comments/ysncwp/civ_v_any_way_to_change_city_state_kiev_to_kyiv/
i play this game more than 10 years straight and know what i talking about, and you play this game at least once? sincerely (talk) 11:37, 16 June 2024 (UTC)Reply



Just dropping by to tell you that I reverted your revert on Greco-Iberian alphabet because I don't think it was vandalism, the user just added a caption to a picture listing the letters depicted. Have a good day, 鈥 Alien333 (what I did & why I did it wrong) 13:29, 16 June 2024 (UTC)Reply

Who said vandalism? It was just redundant. Materialscientist (talk) 13:31, 16 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
Hmm, fair enough, I maybe was the one too quick to revert.   Sorry!Alien333 (what I did & why I did it wrong) 13:35, 16 June 2024 (UTC)Reply

Outdated info on userpage


Your userpage says "As of 2014, most of my free time is taken by emergency matters like vandalism, though I still write short articles during calm hours."

Can you make that info up to date? (talk) 19:59, 17 June 2024 (UTC)Reply

Question about reliable sources


1. Mike runs a news site that Wikipedia considers a reliable source. If Mike publishes an article to his site, and then cites said article in Wikipedia, does that violate WP:OR?

2. John is a person who is notable enough to have a Wikipedia article. Can John edit his own article to add information about himself with no sources to back it up? And would something written by John himself be a valid source for that article? (talk) 21:28, 17 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
