Bot status[सम्पादयतु]

Please give Bot status to VibhijainBot. This bot places talk page templates on Talk pages. ♛♚★Vaibhav Jain★♚♛ १३:५२, २२ मेय् २०११ (UTC)

Please give full details of the bot. What language it was developed in, what namespaces will it be editing, etc. Rao7Talk १३:५८, २२ मेय् २०११ (UTC)
Its a semi-automated bot, will edit through AWB and it will edit User talk and Article talk namespace. ♛♚★Vaibhav Jain★♚♛ १४:०२, २२ मेय् २०११ (UTC)
What will it exactly do in User talk? Rao7Talk १५:२४, २२ मेय् २०११ (UTC)
It will place the {{चर्चा शीर्षक}} template on talk pages where it is not present. Whether to place it in User talk pages would be decided after community approval. ♛♚★Vaibhav Jain★♚♛ १५:३२, २२ मेय् २०११ (UTC)
It is also capable of adding stub template on articles with less than 500 characters and can also keeps the inter-wiki in alphabetical order. ♛♚★Vaibhav Jain★♚♛ १५:३२, २२ मेय् २०११ (UTC)
YesY समाप्तम्. Note that if it malfunctions, block it. Rao7Talk १६:५०, २२ मेय् २०११ (UTC)
Its a semiautomated bot, still if it malfunctions, i will block it on my own. Thanks. :) ♛♚★Vaibhav Jain★♚♛ ०५:४६, २३ मेय् २०११ (UTC)

चर्चा शीर्षक[सम्पादयतु]

Just open मिडीयाविकी:Talkpageheader insert this {{चर्चा शीर्षक}} and save. no need to use bot.Bhawani Gautam ०४:१५, २३ मेय् २०११ (UTC)

I know. I really do not see the need for a bot. Rao7Talk ०५:०९, २३ मेय् २०११ (UTC)

Reference[सम्पादयतु]

I just noticed all the 1841 pages of वर्गः:वर्ष do not contains references. I can add them by my bot but I need to know what reference should I add. ♛♚★Vaibhav Jain★♚♛ ०६:४२, २३ मेय् २०११ (UTC)

Th bot is just adding http://calendopedia.com/ as reference. See and please tell is it right. ♛♚★Vaibhav Jain★♚♛ ०७:२२, २३ मेय् २०११ (UTC)

I don't think you understand what a reference is. See en:WP:REFERENCE for details. For example, if I write "Slumdog Millionaire won 9 Academy Awards", I need to put a reference to a reliable source which confirms the fact. Please test the bot properly and only then should you use it in mainspace. Rao7Talk ०७:४७, २३ मेय् २०११ (UTC)
There is no proper reference for year articles even in en wiki. I have tested the bot on some of them and its working properly. You can examine any article on Recent Changes. ♛♚★Vaibhav Jain★♚♛ ०७:५०, २३ मेय् २०११ (UTC)
You can review the edits here if you want. ♛♚★Vaibhav Jain★♚♛ ०८:२५, २३ मेय् २०११ (UTC)
I don't see why you need a bot for this. You might as well do it at one shot in AWB. What else does this edit other than Year articles? Rao7Talk १३:४७, २३ मेय् २०११ (UTC)
Editing in AWB is faster by a bot as you not have to click on Save always. A user cannot make a lot edits in one minute by AWB thats why making a Bot account is recommended for that. VibhijainBot १४:०५, २३ मेय् २०११ (UTC)
I am just seeing what else it can do, it can also place welcome messages on talk pages but its already done on sa wiki. I am looking to use this bot on Bhojpuri and Kashmiri wikis where there are many tasks to do? I will make some other edits with this bot on this wiki by AWB. ♛♚★Vaibhav Jain★♚♛ १४:१२, २३ मेय् २०११ (UTC)

Please tell your views[सम्पादयतु]

Please tell your views on this. I want to know can I request on meta for Adminship on Pali Wikipedia, I have 1 support and 0 oppose. ♛♚★Vaibhav Jain★♚♛ ११:११, २४ मेय् २०११ (UTC)

You will only get temporary admin rights. Rao7Talk ११:५०, २४ मेय् २०११ (UTC)
Where can I request people to comment on it? ♛♚★Vaibhav Jain★♚♛ १४:२४, २४ मेय् २०११ (UTC)
On its village pump probably. Rao7Talk १४:२५, २४ मेय् २०११ (UTC)
There is no community at all. ♛♚★Vaibhav Jain★♚♛ १४:३८, २४ मेय् २०११ (UTC)
Who is the local bureaucrat? Rao7Talk १४:४०, २४ मेय् २०११ (UTC)
Nobody! There is just one admin {Eukesh}, that also inactive. ♛♚★Vaibhav Jain★♚♛ १६:०५, २४ मेय् २०११ (UTC)
You won't be granted permanent adminship if there is no community. It is highly unlikely. Don't worry, keep on contributing. You're not here just to become an admin are you. Rao7Talk १६:४३, २४ मेय् २०११ (UTC)
Na! But I wanted Adminship to just update the interface, whether it is temporary or permanent. I just fear that the stewards may get angry with me as I always ask for new rights {as I am unexperienced}. ♛♚★Vaibhav Jain★♚♛ ०७:२९, २५ मेय् २०११ (UTC)
Precisely. That is why you should get experience by editing, and only then should you ask. Rao7Talk १४:२३, २५ मेय् २०११ (UTC)
Hehe! Please tell should I request or not. ♛♚★Vaibhav Jain★♚♛ १४:३३, २५ मेय् २०११ (UTC)
Left to you. But it is very highly unlikely that you will get permanent rights. You may get temporary rights. Rao7Talk १४:३७, २५ मेय् २०११ (UTC)
Thats not an issue, but I just don't want those stewards to be angry with me. ♛♚★Vaibhav Jain★♚♛ १४:४६, २५ मेय् २०११ (UTC)
With your administrative actions on Sa, and with the mishaps you've had on meta, people would be dissatisfied. But if you have a valid reason, then they will grant it. Rao7Talk १५:०३, २५ मेय् २०११ (UTC)
Okay! What did you meant by mishaps I have don on meta. ♛♚★Vaibhav Jain★♚♛ १५:०९, २५ मेय् २०११ (UTC)

सर्वसम्मति समर्थन[सम्पादयतु]

महॊदय, मया प्रबंधक पदे नियुक्ति निमित्तके निवेदितं, भवतापि तत्र समर्थितम् अत एव अविलम्ब-निर्णयं दातुं भवन्तं निवेदनं करोम्यहम् --भवानी गौतम १५:१३, २५ मेय् २०११ (UTC)

नमस्कारम् भवानि महोदय। अद्यहं तत्कार्यं करिष्यामि। Rao7Talk १७:१९, २५ मेय् २०११ (UTC)

सम्भाषणम्:तमिल्[सम्पादयतु]

Please tell your views here

बेंगळूरु[सम्पादयतु]

एतत् विषये लेखनस्य उन्नत्यार्थम् भवतः सहायम् अपेक्षयामि कृपया करोति। - रामप्रियः सम्भाषणम् २०:१३, ३ जून् २०११ (UTC)

Yes, definitely. Will look into it soon. (Sorry I'm typing in English; in a bit of a hurry now). Rao7Talk ०७:५७, ४ जून् २०११ (UTC)
ग्रामस्य चौपालम् एतत् पृष्टे चर्चित विविध विषयानाम् निर्नयम् कदा करिष्यति? एवम् मम अभिप्राये चौपाल इति शब्दः सम्स्कृते नास्ति। एतत् हिन्दि पदः अस्ति। I searched the dictionaries known to me for this word, I couldn't find. - रामप्रियः सम्भाषणम् १७:१७, ७ जून् २०११ (UTC)
Hmm, I searched, and couldn't find either. Raise this over there itself, and suggest an alternative name too :) Rao7Talk १९:०८, ७ जून् २०११ (UTC)
What are we deciding for the already raised issues like IRC meeting date/time ? - रामप्रियः सम्भाषणम् ०६:०२, ८ जून् २०११ (UTC)
Judging by the lack of response on the Village Pump, I'd say that people are not yet too familiar with IRC. One good place where we are getting community discussion is in admin policies, which are getting way too much attention than would be required. I'll try pinging individual users on their talkpages. Rao7Talk ०६:१४, ८ जून् २०११ (UTC)

Vandalism[सम्पादयतु]

(अन्तरम् | इतिहासः) . . कृष्णदेवरायः‎;०६:०६ . . (-१,१४८) . . 122.172.0.226 (सम्भाषणम्) (अन्तरम् | इतिहासः) . . कृष्णदेवरायः‎;०६:०६ . . (-३४,११६) . . 122.172.0.226 (सम्भाषणम्) - this user has indulged in vandalism deleting parts of the text. please look into it

Warned. Rao7Talk ११:२७, ६ जून् २०११ (UTC)

Twinkle[सम्पादयतु]

Congr8ts, I have put Twinkle into sa wiki, But many Twinkle templates from en Wiki is required to use it in full Swing or we can Customize them--Mayur (चर्चा) ०९:१३, १९ जून् २०११ (UTC)

Great work :) I think we can customise those templates, or important ones at least. Rao7Talk ०९:१८, १९ जून् २०११ (UTC)

Protection[सम्पादयतु]

I protected per this ♛♚★Vaibhav Jain★♚♛ (चर्चा) ०९:३०, २१ जून् २०११ (UTC)

First of all, it is an English Wikipedia Policy. Their policies can be used only as a guide, but not as a policy. Second, even if you are going to follow that, read this relevant section. There is nothing suggesting that indefinite full protection is required. The user has not even made attempts to edit his talk page further for Christ's sake. Rao7Talk ०९:४१, २१ जून् २०११ (UTC)

Writing Tool[सम्पादयतु]

Please empty Mediawiki:Vector.js and Mediawiki:Monobook.js to remove old typing tool. Thank you --Junaidpv (चर्चा) १४:४६, २३ जून् २०११ (UTC)

Ah, I'd done only Vector.js . Emptied both now. Thanks! Rao7Talk १४:५०, २३ जून् २०११ (UTC)

Wikisource[सम्पादयतु]

I just noticed that the activity on Wikisource has increased after the installation of the transiliration tool. I would like to have sysop rights there to update the interface which is not possible on beta wiki (like this one) and would like to add some gadgets there. There are also some pages for deletion. I am still not sure that would I will be able to get sufficient comments on wikisource, so I think that the village pump here would be fine. Just wanted your comments on this. :) ♛♚★Vaibhav Jain★♚♛ (चर्चा) ०९:५३, ३० जून् २०११ (UTC)

Just forget about this now, I can't have more admin rights as some people are playing dirty politics against me. Hope you understand. ♛♚★Vaibhav Jain★♚♛ (चर्चा) ०६:४५, १ जूलय् २०११ (UTC)

Userpage[सम्पादयतु]

Hello, just wanted to know do one needs a reason for protecting his or his bot user page. Many have done it like this one. Regards, ♛♚★Vaibhav Jain★♚♛ (चर्चा) १०:१०, ४ जूलय् २०११ (UTC)

That is probably some steward stuff. Obviously you need a reason to protect pages, whatever space they may be in. Wikipedia is a Wiki, and only such pages which are important should be protected. Otherwise, all userpages would have been protected by default. Rao7Talk १३:२०, ४ जूलय् २०११ (UTC)
I link my Sanskrit wiki userpage on most other wikis. Thats why I want to ensure that no one vandalizes this page. ♛♚★Vaibhav Jain★♚♛ Talk १३:२२, ४ जूलय् २०११ (UTC)
According to en:Wikipedia:Protection policy#User pages, userpages can be protected if the user agrees from it. ♛♚★Vaibhav Jain★♚♛ Talk १३:३२, ४ जूलय् २०११ (UTC)
Protection is not done in advance. If there is heavy vandalism, then there is some reason at least to protect it. My user and talk page in English have been vandalised some 30 times, and it was protected just twice, that too temporarily. Some vandal keeps coming back every week, but still, admins don't protect it. Rao7Talk १३:४७, ४ जूलय् २०११ (UTC)
That is English Wikipedia, where they have at least 10 vandals per minute. Here, we hardly get 5 vandals in a whole year. Rao7Talk १३:४७, ४ जूलय् २०११ (UTC)

Import[सम्पादयतु]

I would like to ask Importer rights here. I checked that I am not able to use Special:Import, and maybe I need Import right separately for that. This will help us to get some general templates. ♛♚★Vaibhav Jain★♚♛ Talk ०९:११, ८ जूलय् २०११ (UTC)

Hmm, I'm not able to give import rights. Perhaps you could leave a note on a steward's talk page? Rao7Talk १६:५०, ८ जूलय् २०११ (UTC)
I will talk to them regarding this, but maybe its transwiki import is disabled here. I will confirm that from a steward. I had one more query, i saw that many users wants to work with translating interface, but giving admin rights to everyone does not appears good. So why don't we get editinterface rights on sa wiki, we have a pressing need of that. ♛♚★Vaibhav Jain★♚♛ Talk १७:०९, ८ जूलय् २०११ (UTC)
That should be a viable option. You can go ahead and initiate steps to enable that. Rao7Talk १८:३९, ८ जूलय् २०११ (UTC)
One more thing, I am translating Incubator:Incubator:Main Page/sa, its the first indian language to have a main page on incubator. Please help with translating if you have time. ♛♚★Vaibhav Jain★♚♛ Talk १७:११, ८ जूलय् २०११ (UTC)
Okay, I'll try when I have the time, Rao7Talk १८:३९, ८ जूलय् २०११ (UTC)
Please see the comment by hemant here. A responsible editor is not hope to post such comments. ♛♚★Vaibhav Jain★♚♛ Talk Email ०७:१०, १० जूलय् २०११ (UTC)

Regarding translated messages[सम्पादयतु]

Dear Mr. Mike, since I am translating interface messages (at translatewiki). I want to inform u that although most of them will become visible to me so I will be able to test and verify them, but regarding those having limited visibility, kindly check if there is any problem with the message text etc. In case, u feel any problem, let me know so that I can correct it on translatewiki. Further if any time you have any suggestion regarding translation messages, please tell me freely. Thanks and Regards. -Hemant wikikosh (चर्चा) ०३:१७, १३ जूलय् २०११ (UTC)

Thank you very much for all your work! I will certainly let you know my comments and suggestions (if I have any) from time to time. Regards, Rao7Talk ०४:३८, १३ जूलय् २०११ (UTC)

English Redirects[सम्पादयतु]

I had a talk with Shiju, and he said that we should keep English Redirects which users often search as redirects are important for search, So please tell should we now undelete all those redirects with English titles which are used for searching often. ♛♚★Vaibhav Jain★♚♛ Talk Email ११:१५, १७ जूलय् २०११ (UTC)

I know of mass delete, but not of mass undelete. Probably we need to ask for technical help. Rao7Talk १७:१४, १७ जूलय् २०११ (UTC)
Best way is to have a poll for it, that whether should we have it. ♛♚★Vaibhav Jain★♚♛ Talk Email १७:४३, १७ जूलय् २०११ (UTC)
A discussion would be best; but we still need to figure out a plausible way to mass create english redirects. Rao7Talk १७:५८, १७ जूलय् २०११ (UTC)
Shiju told that we need to create english redirects for only those English words which are used for searching purposes a lot by users. ♛♚★Vaibhav Jain★♚♛ Talk Email १०:३४, १८ जूलय् २०११ (UTC)
Fair enough. Rao7Talk १७:१७, १९ जूलय् २०११ (UTC)

Please change link text[सम्पादयतु]

नमस्ते मैकवर्य, please change the text on sidebar viz. साहाय्य् to साहाय्यम्, because former is not correct grammatically. Thanks. -Hemant wikikosh (चर्चा) ०५:१६, २४ जूलय् २०११ (UTC)

YesY समाप्तम् Please let me know if it is updated. I really wonder why these errors come Rao7Talk ०५:२८, २४ जूलय् २०११ (UTC)

So quick! :). Yes it's updated. धन्यवादाः। -Hemant wikikosh (चर्चा) ०५:५५, २४ जूलय् २०११ (UTC)

Admin[सम्पादयतु]

Hi, Can you give me admin rights here again. Earlier due to small community, i got some votes only and that is why I got temporary Adminship only. I will like to get them again to serve the community better, and would be better if I got permanent Adminship now. ♛♚★Vaibhav Jain★♚♛ Talk Email १०:४०, २६ जूलय् २०११ (UTC)

We would need consensus for that, as you very well know. Rao7Talk १३:४६, २६ जूलय् २०११ (UTC)
The request is on विकिपीडियासम्भाषणम्:प्रबंधक#My request for Permanent Administrator ship, it has been a long time since it is there, so I think it can be closed now. ♛♚★Vaibhav Jain★♚♛ Talk Email १४:१२, २६ जूलय् २०११ (UTC)
Closed. Rao7Talk १६:०१, २६ जूलय् २०११ (UTC)

Kannada help[सम्पादयतु]

Can you help in translating the Articlle on Swami Rambhadaracharya into Kannada. I have translated into Hindi (see here) and Sanskrit (see here) - and it is a featured article currently on both Hindi and Sanskrit Wikipedias. I am working with some other users to translate it into Gujarati (see here), - I think I can do it in only in one more language (German), beyond which I would need help. Let me know. Nmisra (चर्चा) ०७:३०, ६ ओगस्ट् २०११ (UTC)

Will definitely try, though I can't promise a FA quality! Rao7Talk ०७:३२, ६ ओगस्ट् २०११ (UTC)

Comment[सम्पादयतु]

Can you comment on विकिपीडियासम्भाषणम्:प्रबंधक#वैभव जैन, through crat doesn't vote, currently many active users like Harshavs are not very inactive, so would be great if you give your support or oppose or just a comment. ♛♚★Vaibhav Jain★♚♛ Talk Email १२:३४, ११ सप्तम्बर् २०११ (UTC)

Featured article[सम्पादयतु]

Maybe its time to change the featured article, its been up for quite some time. What say? Avenue X at Cicero (चर्चा) १७:३२, २० सप्तम्बर् २०११ (UTC)

Some users are working on it actually (User:Sbblr0803). It was changed yesterday, but for some reason it was changed back. Probably he will change it again. Rao7Talk १७:४०, २० सप्तम्बर् २०११ (UTC)
