Little Help

Hello!..I'm Srikar Kashyap,India.I'm an editor in English Wikipedia.I'm interested in creating and editing Indian Articles in Simple English.I'm planning to overhaul the article Economy of India.But I need clarification whether the infobox of Economy from English Economy can be used here. Regards Srikarkashyap (talk) 15:43, 4 April 2012 (UTC)

Hello Srikarkashyap! The template does not exist here yet, but it can be imported if needed. However, if you are going to expand the existing article, then please don't forget to attribute the article correctly. Imports can be request on WP:ANI. Best, -Barras talk 16:41, 4 April 2012 (UTC)
Hi again!..I have a few questions which I know you can answer.;)
  • Can I now apply for Autopatrolled.I have created 7 articles so far.If not, please tell the minimum number for it.I think 50 is unfair because Simple Wiki has much lesser articles than English Wiki.So creating ten articles here is equal to 50 articles in English Wiki(personal opinion).
  • I would like to use(or import) the template present in this article [[1]].If created(or imported) I promise to create many fighter plane articles.
Awaiting your answers.Thanks! Srikar Kashyap<<Talk>>16:37, 1 May 2012 (UTC)
Sorry, I missed to reply here as I've seen it, didn't answer right now and then forgot about it. As for autopatrol see Wikipedia:Patrollers and for the import stuff, please ask on WP:AN. -Barras talk 14:52, 7 May 2012 (UTC)

School project

Hi Barras. When you have a chance, will you please take a look at User talk:Bfulmersms and xyr responses at on my talk page. I've obviously no experience in setting one of these things up, so please tell me if there's anything I should be doing, and feel free to interject so I can learn. Osiris (talk) 06:39, 6 April 2012 (UTC)

Disregard. I've emailed you instead. Osiris (talk) 17:47, 6 April 2012 (UTC)


I had forgotten to login to a page and would like hide my IP address, please can you let me know the procedure for getting this done.--Jimjames1989 (talk) 07:44, 24 April 2012 (UTC)

Mail me the diff/link and I will take care of it asap. -Barras talk 08:22, 24 April 2012 (UTC)

Sylvia Plath Entry

Hi Barras!

I hope this note finds you well! I pulled up the Sylvia Plath entry on my iPhone and was disturbed to find the words "im a piece of trash" (sic) above her picture. The same phrase also appeared just before the information on when/where she was born. I then pulled up the same entry on my laptop and all had been corrected. I'm not sure if the issue is fully resolved or not, as I have never encountered this kind of disgraceful vandalism before. Hence, I thought I would bring it to your attention. When you have a moment, could you look into it? I would certainly appreciate your time and assistance.

All the Best, RCD

(talk page stalker) This was over on the English Wikipedia here. Our article on Sylvia Plath hasn't been edited since April and is vandalism-free. The vandalism on the other wiki has been reverted, though, so it's resolved. Osiris (talk) 02:41, 9 May 2012 (UTC)

Talk page

We're allowing semi-protection of talk pages now? There hasn't been any vandalism so how come it needs protection? Kennedy (talk) 11:16, 18 May 2012 (UTC)

No need to get it vandalized in first place. I promised to re-protect when he leaves and so did I. I only unprotected it for the time he's been around. -Barras talk 11:18, 18 May 2012 (UTC)
Yeah I understand that we can be pro-active in general, just we've never protected talk pages before, and I don't think its a good idea. Many, many people will watch his page and vandalism can be reverted easily. People who are not auto-confirmed should still be able to comment on talk pages. Kennedy (talk) 11:22, 18 May 2012 (UTC)


Hi Barras, can you please take a look on this? Thanks! --weltforce 05:16, 23 May 2012 (UTC)


Thank you for the barnstar! I love it! Barnstars are really encouraging gestures! They make you want to do more and do it better! Oregonian2012 (talk) 22:10, 28 May 2012 (UTC)

Improper action

I think Debastein, who is not an admin on this wiki, should not be allowed to remove votes by other parties. She is an interested party herself. It's this kind of high-handed behaviour which is getting up the noses of us hobbits! Macdonald-ross (talk) 19:35, 25 June 2012 (UTC)

Mh... I don't really know what you are talking about. Do you have a link for me to look at? -Barras talk 19:49, 25 June 2012 (UTC)
Meantime, someone else reverted it. It's all about the proposed Indian project. Macdonald-ross (talk) 12:21, 27 June 2012 (UTC)
Oh, this. Well, I currently spend most of the day in lab and don't really have the time to take care of this really huge issue. However, I regularly get mails about it, although I'm due to real life not really active at this time and I don't feel like spending much time on it (at least not now). I hope this all gets resolved soon. -Barras talk 20:18, 27 June 2012 (UTC)

Edit summary

And maybe have some patience before jumping on someone like that....wasn't done yet. -DJSasso (talk) 12:17, 28 June 2012 (UTC)

Well, if you go on with other stuff, it can be assumed that you are done with the article. -Barras talk 12:24, 28 June 2012 (UTC)
Unless the other stuff was tied to it. Or being done as multi-tasking in two different windows. -DJSasso (talk) 12:28, 28 June 2012 (UTC)
If you import an article, you should firstly take care of it and fix it instead of jumping to other wiki tasks. -Barras talk 12:29, 28 June 2012 (UTC)
It was all being done at once. It is considered common courtesy not to jump on articles people are working on within minutes of them creating them. The article was all of 5 minutes old. You should know better, you've been here a long time. -DJSasso (talk) 12:32, 28 June 2012 (UTC)
