Is it possible for this article to be increased from stub status? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Platypusrock (talkcontribs) 02:42, 8 December 2020 (UTC)

Pritom AhmedEdit

The extravagant claims far outnumber the sources in the article. It has been tagged for lack of notability for almost 9 years. Can we work on this article, please? Bearian (talk) 23:48, 25 December 2020 (UTC)

Laxmi Kanto Babur BariEdit

Advice for new usersEdit

I've noticed that many of the articles I've had to delete recently for advertising have carried the Wikiproject Bangladesh banner. This suggests that newer project members are not aware of the most important Wikipedia guideline, the NPOV rule. Please don't create any draft articles without reading and understanding this rule. You will simply be wasting your time if you do. Deb (talk) 14:18, 16 January 2021 (UTC)

@Deb: If you look closely, I suspect you'll find that although the WikiProject Bangladesh banner is almost always placed by a project member, it is almost never placed by the author, and the author is almost never a member of the WikiProject. Don't mistake the banner as an endorsement by the WikiProject. The banner serves three purposes: first, to advertise the project to new editors who may be interested in writing about Bangladesh-related topics; second, to put promising new pages that may need help on the radar of Wikipedians experienced in the topic area; and third, to put hopeless pages that should be deleted in the sights of Wikipedians who have the most invested in keeping the topic area unpolluted.
You're absolutely right that editors shouldn't create drafts or articles without understanding Wikipedia's core content policies (I would go further, and advise new editors against creating pages at all until they've gained considerable experience editing existing ones). But in posting here you're preaching to the choir, and sadly are unlikely to reach many editors creating unambiguous advertising pages. --Worldbruce (talk) 15:13, 16 January 2021 (UTC)

Hi everyone. Hope you all are well. If anyone you have some time then please give your input at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of international cricket five-wicket hauls on Irish cricket grounds. Thanks. Störm (talk) 17:05, 11 March 2021 (UTC)
