Wikipedia Asian Month 2017: Invitation to ParticipateEdit

Hello! Last year, you signed up to participate in Wikipedia Asian Month (WAM) 2016 on the English Wikipedia. The event was an international success, with hundreds of editors creating thousands of articles on Asian topics across dozens of different language versions of Wikipedia.

I'd like to invite you to join us for Wikipedia Asian Month 2017, which once again lasts through the month of November. The goal is for users to create new articles on Asian-related content, each at least 3,000 bytes and 300 words in length. Editors who create at least four articles will receive a Wikipedia Asian Month postcard!

Also be sure to check out the Wikipedia Asian Art Month affiliate event - creating articles on Asian art topics can get you a Metropolitan Museum of Art postcard!

If you're interested, please sign up here for the English Wikipedia. If you are interested in also working on other language editions of Wikipedia, please visit the meta page to see other participating projects. If you have any questions, please visit our talk page.

Thank you!

For Ambalal Sakarlal DesaiEdit

See, Sahitya Pallav (Bhag 2) (pp. 138-144) at Gandhi Heritage Portal. --Gazal world (talk) 18:32, 13 October 2019 (UTC)

And for genealogy of Chavda dynasty, See. And also check following chapter for Chudasama dynasty. --Gazal world (talk) 19:15, 13 October 2019 (UTC)
In the same book, there is a chapter on Vastupala. See. --Gazal world (talk) 19:31, 13 October 2019 (UTC)
@Gazal world: Thank you. This is a lot to do. :D -Nizil (talk) 06:03, 14 October 2019 (UTC)
And, Can You create article on Thoda Ansu Thoda Phool, autobiography of Jayshankar Sundari ? I have a bunch of sources. --Gazal world (talk) 12:22, 16 October 2019 (UTC)
@Gazal world: Haha, too many things on hand. I just issued Thoda Ansu Thoda Phool from library to read. I am interested in creating the article on it but only after I have completed all the tasks on my hand (a long list). The life is going to be bit busy in coming months as exams are approaching. Regards,-Nizil (talk) 14:01, 16 October 2019 (UTC)
Same situation is here. I too have a long list of articles and have no time. I am going to create an article on "Manilal Nabhubhai : Jivanrang" a critical biography by Dhirubhai Thaker. I found 2 - 3 good references for it. --Gazal world (talk) 14:24, 16 October 2019 (UTC)
@Gazal world: Yeh. Too many things to do, too little time. Priority keeps changing. -Nizil (talk) 14:50, 16 October 2019 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Pyaar ki Pungi (2nd nomination)Edit

Hi Nizil, This comment is being made in response to your comment on the AfD. I chose to take it here, as it is a general discussion on AfD and not necessarily on Pungi song. First of all thanks a lot for providing some fresh perspective on the stagnant AfD. At AfD we are discussing whether the article deserves its own seperate page ? our primary and most fundamental question is notability. Is the topic notable on its own ? does it have WP:SIGCOV sources. This has to be answered by the participant first. Once the notability question is answered along with justified reasoning with links/urls/policies. Once notability is addressed and the person commenting thinks a separate page is not warranted then we think whether it makes sense to include the content in a parent article with a redirect, or to delete it altogether. I believe the article has enough coverage that proves it passes our charts criteria and WP:GNG to have its own page. Others may have different opinion but a justification must be given.

In your comment, you seem to have straightaway dived into Q2, without discussing the Q1 of individual notability for a standalone article and why individual notability is lacking in the sources that I had presented on the AfD.

regarding the CHARTS I had started a thread at Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Film/Indian_cinema_task_force#Charts_for_Indian_Film_songs but no one commented there yet. perhaps I need to drop a note on the parent WP talk pages. --DBigXray 08:24, 15 October 2019 (UTC)

Can you review this article?Edit

I created new article regarding one book and that is here:The Difficulty of Being Good: On the Subtle Art of Dharma. Can you please review the article and add it to wikiprojects using rater? -- Harshil want to talk? 07:01, 17 October 2019 (UTC)

DYK for Rambha GandhiEdit

 On 20 October 2019, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Rambha Gandhi, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that Gujarati writer Rambha Gandhi wrote and participated in more than 400 radio plays? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Rambha Gandhi. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Rambha Gandhi), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

Your draft article, Draft:Jairam ShivjiEdit


Hello, Nizil Shah. It has been over six months since you last edited the Articles for Creation submission or Draft page you started, "Jairam Shivji".

In accordance with our policy that Wikipedia is not for the indefinite hosting of material deemed unsuitable for the encyclopedia mainspace, the draft has been nominated for deletion. If you plan on working on it further, or editing it to address the issues raised if it was declined, simply edit the submission and remove the {{db-afc}}, {{db-draft}}, or {{db-g13}} code.

If your submission has already been deleted by the time you get there, and you wish to retrieve it, you can request its undeletion by following the instructions at this link. An administrator will, in most cases, restore the submission so you can continue to work on it.

Thank you for your submission to Wikipedia! CASSIOPEIA(talk) 05:22, 21 October 2019 (UTC)

Emasse AfD of Indian VillagesEdit

I would suggest you to withdraw Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Agol as a blatant violation of WP:GEOLAND. --DBigXray 16:05, 22 October 2019 (UTC)

@DBigXray:, these are not villages but neighborhoods of Ahmedabad. And there are no references or encyclopedic info. Some of them are very small neighborhoods. So I found them without any purpose there. So AfD. -Nizil (talk) 16:50, 22 October 2019 (UTC)


Please stop by if you wish this nomination to continue. You have never responded to the initial reviewer comments, and the nomination will close soon if you don't. Thank you. BlueMoonset (talk) 03:51, 23 October 2019 (UTC)

Comment on articles related to Bhat nominated for deletionEdit

Hi Nizil, one user had made articles related to small temples, lakes and faliyas of Bhat and I had nominated all of them for deletion. Your comment on their notability is required so that these misleading junk can be cleaned from Wikipedia. Please look at those AfD. Best, — Harshil want to talk? 06:44, 25 October 2019 (UTC)

@Harshil169:, yes, I know. Most articles will not need AfD. PROD is enough. If there is an issue you may ping me for an opinion. I have voted my opinion on Moti lake AFD. -Nizil (talk) 06:49, 25 October 2019 (UTC)
User:Harshil169 Harshil please familiarize yourself with WP:CANVAS and WP:PROD. Inappropriate PROD without following the PROD policy strictly is basically a fast ticket for WP:ANI and sanctions. --DBigXray 06:52, 25 October 2019 (UTC)
I’m wondering that how naive page reviewer would be that s/he had accepted these much junk without cross checking. Yesterday, while demanding page reviewer rights, administrator scolded me for sending Moti Lake for deletion which is obviously notable per him and I don’t have knowledge of policy. 😏— Harshil want to talk? 07:00, 25 October 2019 (UTC)
PROD is a serious thing. Misuse is strictly prohibited. Use only when it is very clear that the deletion will be uncontroversial and will not be opposed by anyone.-Nizil (talk) 06:58, 25 October 2019 (UTC)
Yes, DBig, I know policy of canvas and thus, I requested comment of Nizil not his delete vote. If someone is citing book of Tarla Dalal(which is famous for recipes) as food and prasad of place then it’s just junk for Wikipedia. — Harshil want to talk? 07:00, 25 October 2019 (UTC)
@Harshil169: Once upon a time, there was an easy way for new articles. Such misuses resulted in its closure. -Nizil (talk) 07:02, 25 October 2019 (UTC)
  • User:Harshil169 what is the hurry to get those user rights ? No admin will grant you the rights unless he is absolutely sure that you are fit for it. To sharpen your Policy understanding participating and reading AfD discussions is the best way. on the other hand bad comments on AfD with an aim to fill up your AfD logs can be easily identified and it will act negatively. --DBigXray 07:28, 25 October 2019 (UTC)

Help me to expand this article.Edit

Hey Nizil, I started an article on Satya Prakash which was weekly published by Karsandas Mulji. It will be best if you help me in expanding this article and CE it. I'm pinging @Gazal world: too as it is one of the favorite topic of him. Happy Diwali!-- Harshil want to talk? 04:08, 26 October 2019 (UTC)

@Harshil169: I will be on WikiVacation for a week. So I will not be much active. But I will keep an eye and help. Happy Festivities. Regards,-Nizil (talk) 04:49, 26 October 2019 (UTC)
@Harshil169: See Buddhiprakash for inspiration. And when you move it to mainspace, please name it Satyaprakash. Regards,-Nizil (talk) 11:17, 26 October 2019 (UTC)
@Harshil169: Hello, Thanks for working on Satyaprakash. Very little is known about the magazine. Please put request on Resource Exchange page, and I will send you two references: (1) Sayityik Samayiko edited by Hasit Mehta OCLC 824686453, and (2) Gujarati Vishwakosh entry about Karsandas Mulji. There is no independent entry on Satyaprakash in Vishwakosh. --Gazal world (talk) 14:18, 26 October 2019 (UTC)
Nizil: Please add the detail about The Karsandas Mulji Prize (pp. 161–162) in Karsandas Mulji. --Gazal world (talk) 19:41, 26 October 2019 (UTC)
Here is Satyaprakash. Kindly, review it. Happy new year. -- Harshil want to talk? 05:10, 28 October 2019 (UTC)

Thanks / Cyclone MahaEdit

I do appreciate you cleaning up the Maha article some. The problem remains that nearly a week's worth of content is missing. Intensity changes are important, but the meat (the atmospheric and hydrological conditions, the storm's structure, the direction of movement/what caused it, etc.) is missing from the article. I don't really have the time to write up a whole article right now. NoahTalk 05:08, 4 November 2019 (UTC)

@Hurricane Noah: I just superficially cleaned the article with some basic updates. I have almost no knowledge in meteorology so I refrained to add what I don't understand much. I want you to keep an eye on the article and help in whatever way you can. I reside in the state Gujarat where it is likely to make landfall so I am interested in it. ChocolateTrain Can you help as you did with Cyclone Vayu? I will try to add more in non-meteoro sections like preparations etc. Regards,-Nizil (talk) 05:27, 4 November 2019 (UTC)
@Vida0007, Funplussmart, Hurricanehink, and Es204L: Please help to improve Cyclone Maha.-Nizil (talk) 06:46, 4 November 2019 (UTC)

Nabaneeta Dev SenEdit

There are some feedback to improve, on Wikipedia:In_the_news/Candidates#RD:_Nabaneeta_Dev_Sen I think this is an easy one. Also ping User:Fylindfotberserk if he is interested here. --DBigXray 06:43, 9 November 2019 (UTC)

@DBigXray: Thanks for nominating. I am making improvements but I have found no references for unreferenced text so far. So it needs a lot of work before passing ITN. Alternatively, we can remove unreferenced text for now and make the article passable for ITN. Other can join to help. -Nizil (talk) 06:50, 9 November 2019 (UTC)
controversial unreferenced content must be removed until a reliable source is found as recently dead fall under WP:BLP. Non controversial un-referenced can be moved to talk page with a Cn tags so that talk page watchers can work on finding the refs and add it back later on. --DBigXray 11:41, 9 November 2019 (UTC)
