December 2020

Information icon Hello. This is a message to let you know that one or more of your recent contributions, such as the edit you made to Template:User from Scotland, did not appear constructive and has been reverted. Please take some time to familiarise yourself with our policies and guidelines. You can find information about these at our welcome page which also provides further information about contributing constructively to this encyclopedia. If you only meant to make test edits, please use your sandbox for that. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you may leave a message on my talk page. You are changing the wording of the template I chose many years ago. I chose to say that I am "from Scotland" and you are changing it me being "a native". However you feel I should be categorised it is not your business; do not put words in my mouth, or the mouth of others who have carefully chosen a template.

Copying within Wikipedia requires attribution

Information icon Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you copied or moved text from Sino-Indian border dispute into South Tibet (disputed territory). While you are welcome to re-use Wikipedia's content, here or elsewhere, Wikipedia's licensing does require that you provide attribution to the original contributor(s). When copying within Wikipedia, this is supplied at minimum in an edit summary at the page into which you've copied content, disclosing the copying and linking to the copied page, e.g., copied content from [[page name]]; see that page's history for attribution. It is good practice, especially if copying is extensive, to also place a properly formatted {{ copied}} template on the talk pages of the source and destination. Please provide attribution for this duplication if it has not already been supplied by another editor, and if you have copied material between pages before, even if it was a long time ago, you should provide attribution for that also. You can read more about the procedure and the reasons at Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia. Thank you. If you are the sole author of the prose that was copied, attribution is not required. — Diannaa ( talk) 12:33, 29 December 2020 (UTC)

Do not edit your comments in discussions after others have replied

Do not edit your comments in discussions after others have responded to them, as you did with your nomination statement at the National capital territory RfD. See WP:TALK#REPLIED for the full guideline, but in short the reason for this is that it can (and in this case did) deprive subsequent comments of necessary context and alter the meaning and/or implication of other's words. This is just as serious an issue as editing other users' comments directly. Thryduulf ( talk) 14:56, 2 January 2021 (UTC)

What should I do instead? I have slightly changed my mind regarding my nomination. -- Soumya-8974 (he) talk contribs subpages 14:57, 2 January 2021 (UTC)
If you change your mind, WP:STRIKE it out. I have done this in the aforementioned RfD so you can see what that looks like. -- Tavix ( talk) 16:33, 2 January 2021 (UTC)

Azad Kashmir map


You updated the map of Azad Kashmir at Commons saying it was "to be consistent with other location maps", but do you mind elaborating on which other maps used on Wikipedia depict Indian-occupied Kashmir as part of Pakistan? This one doesn't, for example (yes, it hatches the area, but that's not the same as colouring it identically to Pakistan-administered areas as you did). Additionally, I would note that the map description clearly states that it represents the "de facto situation", which your new version patently does not.

I would appreciate some clarification on this matter. Sincerely, M Imtiaz ( talk · contribs) 23:28, 2 January 2021 (UTC)

Please learn how to bundle nominations

Adding multiple nominations that have the exact same rationale and target page is disruptive and inconvenient for other editors. You've been warned several times about this before. Please learn how to group nominations together as to avoid cluttering the log page where they're made, and it also prevents other editors from submitting redundant !votes on each separate nomination.

ANI notice

Information icon There is currently a discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents regarding an issue with which you may have been involved. The thread is Soumya-8974, again. Thank you. -- Tavix ( talk) 22:33, 3 January 2021 (UTC)

Soumya-8974, please come respond to this ANI discussion before doing any more redirect tagging. Liz Read! Talk! 04:16, 4 January 2021 (UTC)

January 2021

A page you created has been nominated for deletion as an attack page, according to section G10 of the criteria for speedy deletion.

Do not create pages that attack, threaten, or disparage their subject or any other entity. Attack pages and files are not tolerated by Wikipedia, and users who create or add such material may be blocked from editing. The Bushranger One ping only 07:11, 5 January 2021 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of User:UBX/CCP virus

Please do not create hoaxes on Wikipedia, as you did at User:UBX/CCP virus. Doing so is considered to be vandalism and is prohibited. If you are interested in how accurate Wikipedia is, a more constructive test method would be to try to find inaccurate statements that are already in Wikipedia—and then to correct them if possible. If you would like to make test edits, please use the sandbox. Under section G3 of the criteria for speedy deletion, the page has been nominated for deletion. Repeated vandalism may result in the loss of editing privileges.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Request reason:

I have learned the lesson from this indef block, and I promise I will never express my racist view and never disrupt Wikipedia to make a point. I will comment on articles, not on contributors. I will respect others. Excluding minor changes, I will not contribute on controversial articles without prior discussions. I will boldly retarget redirects instead of putting them in RfD. I am here to improve an encyclopedia, not to destroy it. --Soumya-8974 (he) talk contribs subpages 17:34, 14 January 2021 (UTC)

Decline reason:

Far too soon to unblock. Considering how serious the problems were, the appeal fails to convince; see the ANI discussion here. I suggest you appeal again per WP:Standard offer in six months' time. Bishonen | tålk 13:14, 15 January 2021 (UTC).
  • I will boldly retarget redirects instead of putting them in RfD is severely missing the point of your RfD deficiencies. Boldness in retargeting should only be taken when a redirect is obviously not controversial, and I'm not confident you are familiar with when an action may be controversial. I will never express my racist view: I don't think I have ever seen someone admit they are racist on Wikipedia, so I'm actually impressed with that admission. That being said, I think it would be more convincing to show how you are working on resolving the underlying cause of the racism rather then a promise to simply not express these views. -- Tavix ( talk) 17:55, 14 January 2021 (UTC)
  • The issues with redirects are not solely nominating things at RfD that should be done boldly, making bold changes that should be nominated at RfD, proposing/boldy making changes that are not needed to be made and repeated misunderstandings of policies and guidelines despite them being explained multiple times. I would not be comfortable with you being unblocked without a topic ban from everything to do with redirects. Whichever admin chooses to review this unblock request should also consider the comments at AN/I regarding your contributions to the Kashmir topic area. Thryduulf ( talk) 12:36, 15 January 2021 (UTC)
  • Face-smile.svg Thank you. Will re-appeal after 10 June. However, I am now contributing to other wikis, and watch whether my edits are disruptive after this block. -- Soumya-8974 (he) talk contribs subpages 07:38, 16 January 2021 (UTC)
