Disputed ImagesEdit

There has been a recent dispute over which image best depicts the Galle Lighthouse, with an editor recently replacing the longstanding image with one that they have recently taken. The two images in question are as follows:

It would assist in the determining which is the more appropriate image for editors to indicate their preference so that the current dispute can be settled once and for all. Dan arndt (talk) 02:53, 28 February 2020 (UTC)

RfC on how read situational reportsEdit

Please find the discussion on my talk page about how to record the number of coronavirus patients based on Epidemiology Unit of MoH reports. Your comments are valued.--Chanaka L (talk) 10:16, 28 March 2020 (UTC)

I also ask others to involve in this matter.--L Manju (talk) 16:23, 28 March 2020 (UTC)

Anton SebastianpillaiEdit

I would be grateful if someone could kindly check the ethnicity-related text and categories on Anton Sebastianpillai, and perhaps translate the article into a suitable language(s). Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 15:18, 8 April 2020 (UTC)

Tissamaharama Tamil Brahmi inscriptionEdit

I suggest to change the aforesaid article name to Tissamaharama alleged Tamil Brahmi Inscription. Tissamaharama Tamil Brahmi inscription- see the details. Some scholars have successfully showed that the initial reading of this inscription by Mahadevan was not logical. Mahadevan's reading was also partially accepted by Ragupathy but completely rejected by Somadeva and Falk. Therefore it is incorrect to identify this potsherd completely as a Tamil Brahmi inscription. Please comment on its talk page--L Manju (talk) 16:33, 27 April 2020 (UTC)

Please consider participating at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Kanadikavu Shree Vishnumaya Kuttichathan Swamy temple, and/or providing some sources for, some development of the article. Seems like a notable topic to me. --Doncram (talk) 21:08, 5 May 2020 (UTC)
