Article contribution[change source]

Hi sir, I have created around 20+ articles articles few months ago. With few exceptions, I mostly simplified the pages and wikified well. If you can review those pages in your free time, even few recent works will ok, I will be satisfied whether I'm able in contributing well or not.

@DRC-B5: I checked a few of the pages you created. In general, I see complex words, phrases, and sentences that should be simpler. I also think some of them need better or additional categories.
If you used the English Wikipedia (enwiki) article as a basis for an article here, you need to include attribution on the talk page.
Here we use the heading "Other websites" instead of "External links".
A few specific comments about Taj Mahal Palace Hotel:
  • "Located at" and "located in" should be just "in" -- using "located" is not needed when describing where something is.
  • "Situated" is not needed, either.
  • Terms that need to be simplified or explained: flagship, captains of industry
In Icefield, you changed "distinguishable" to "measurable". Those don't mean the same thing. It's important to make sure you don't change the meaning when you adapt an article from enwiki.
In Gautam Adani, you used the term "current". That is not a good term to use here, because if that changes, then the article won't be correct.
Hope this helps. -- Auntof6 (talk) 01:21, 13 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ha that will help a lot. Thanks sir. I will try to refer your guidelines in this case for more improvement. Dibyojyotilet's chat 03:04, 13 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

AWB for school project banners[change source]

Hi Auntof6, I have noticed that most of the project banner templates for school projects have the same error in them. For the project "Notable Females through Inclusive Journalism", the template should be

{{class project|teacher=Castilibrary2|link=Wikipedia:Schools/Projects/Notable_Females_through_Inclusive_Journalism}}

but instead is

{{class project|teacher=Castilibrary2|link=Wikipedia:Schools/Projects/Notable_Females_through_Inclusive_Journaism}} or

{{class project|teacher=Castilibrary2|link=Wikipedia:Schools/Projects/Notable_Females_through_Inclusive_Journaism]}}

For the project "Notable Women US Social Movements", the template should be

{{class project|teacher=Castilibrary2|link=Wikipedia:Schools/Projects/Notable Women US Social Movements}}

but instead is

{{class project|teacher=Castilibrary2|link=Wikipedia:Schools/Projects/Notable Women US Social Movements]}}

(Obviously without the nowikis.) I already fixed a lot of these but there are probably at least 100 remaining with these errors. Do you think this would be good to fix through AWB and flood flag? I don't think the teacher would mind because it would fix the link to the projects. Lights and freedom (talk) 18:07, 18 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Lights and freedom: That should be fixable with AWB. Let me make sure I'm seeing the specific issues:
  • Misspelling "journalism" as journaism -- add the missing L (in lower case)
  • Having a closing square bracket before the closing double curly brackets -- should remove the square bracket
Are there other issues? Did you want me to fix this (I'm willing to do so) or are you thinking you would do it? -- Auntof6 (talk) 18:54, 18 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yes, that's all the issues I saw. I looked through a sample of the pages, but not every single page, so it's possible there's other errors, but I didn't see any. It might be better if you do it because you have the permission and I've never used AWB. Lights and freedom (talk) 18:56, 18 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Lights and freedom: OK, I'll do it right now. I'll post here when it's done, and you can let me know if you think I missed any. -- Auntof6 (talk) 19:00, 18 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Lights and freedom: Done. I made 134 changes. Let me know if you think I missed any. -- Auntof6 (talk) 19:18, 18 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks! That's probably all of them. Lights and freedom (talk) 19:20, 18 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Category Women[change source]

You removed in many many articles the category category:women (where there is not an appropriate sub-category). Why did you remove all these categories? SportsOlympic (talk) 21:36, 22 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@SportsOlympic: I removed articles, not categories. I removed them because we don't need individual women listed there. -- Auntof6 (talk) 21:38, 22 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
These are all women, so they match perfectly in the category women. So or you should nominate the category for deletion, or creating appropriate subcategories. That is the way to build a category-tree SportsOlympic (talk) 22:36, 22 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
