Please protect Simple English Wikipedia: Vandalism. --Leonidlednev (talk) 23:49, 22 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The main issues we've had on this article seem from 22 November where 3RR was not really followed, hence it looks like there's more vandalism than there is. There's only been one incident of vandalism since. Not protecting for now. --Ferien (talk) 17:48, 25 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Ferien: can it be protected now? There was a big uptick in vandalism over the last 22 hours. (talk) 16:09, 26 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ok.  Done for a week --Ferien (talk) 21:05, 27 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Is there evidence that Simple English Wikipedia is actually used by the groups mentioned on the page? Even if that's who it's intended for, has there been a study about this? Kk.urban (talk) 01:28, 28 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yes, we have have run programs for such groups in the past, especially ESL learers. I remember there being a study about simple, but I forget what the study was about so I am not sure on that one. -Djsasso (talk) 01:35, 28 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Requesting page protection for Adolf Hitler Uunona, persistent vandalism by IP users for a whle now, See Cyber.Eyes.2005 (talk) 03:50, 1 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The levels of vandalism in that page are somewhat manageable for now. However, there are few constructive anonymous edits within the last year.

Ahmed Shamshul Haque[change source]

I want to clarify that I don't have the ability to delete pages on Wikipedia or engage in any direct actions on external websites. However, if you believe that your Wikipedia page is being deleted without proper justification, you may want to consider the following approach:

Subject: Request for Review of Wikipedia Page Deletion

Dear @MathXplore

I hope this message finds you well. I recently noticed that my Wikipedia page, Ahmed Shamshul Haque, has been flagged for deletion. I would like to express my concern and seek clarification regarding the reasons behind this decision.

I believe that the content on my page accurately reflects the notability. The information provided is well-referenced and adheres to Wikipedia's guidelines for reliable sourcing. Additionally, the page has garnered positive attention from reputable sources.

I kindly request a thorough review of the deletion decision, taking into consideration the inherent notability of the subject matter. If there are specific concerns or issues with the page content, I am more than willing to collaborate and make necessary revisions to ensure compliance with Wikipedia's policies.

I appreciate your time and attention to this matter and am confident that, upon review, my Wikipedia page will be reinstated.

Thank you for your understanding.

He is trying to remove and disruptive large amount of well sourced and reliable information from the page and he is making many reverts even he made a request for Roll back permission. Further he even Quickly nominated page Gurjar clans for deletion. His intentions is not good and he must have conflict of intrest please help me in this cause thank you May god blessed you and your family. He is just trying to Target Gurjar ethnic related articles and he is involved in miss using of General research tag see here at Baisoya ([6]), Kushan ([7]) every time he is just using one single summary with same tag WP:OR/ possible General research etc. he is also further giving me wrong warnings at my talk page see ([8]) even after the creation of my at Simple Wikipedia after just few hours of creation my account he is wrongly gave me warnings for no serious reason or Disruption. He should be strictly warned or blocked for making unconstructive, Disruptive edits and vandalizing the pages , Including Baisoya, Kushan, and Gurjar clans mostly Gurjar ethnic related pages he is targeting. TalanChopra (talk) 20:33, 7 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Fr33kman please see my request TalanChopra (talk) 21:35, 7 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I removed unsourced and potentially original research content from this article Kushan. User:TalanChopra reverted my edits and added more unsourced material, including geographic distribution and religion of the Kushan clan, which were not mentioned in any of his cited sources See, Additionally, he re-added languages spoken by the clan without proper sourcing. Furthermore, content that may be one-sided or biased was added, such as the statement "The believer of the myth, that Gurjars are foreigners, like Sir James Campbell, General Crook, Colonel Todd, Mr. forbs, Dr. Bhagwan Lal Inder Ji and all other has agree that present Kasana gotra of Gurjars are successors of great Kushans". The cited source for this information needs verification, Source. User:TalanChopra also added the statement (claim) "According to Vidhya Prakash Tyagi, the Kushan, a sub-caste of the Gujjars, were a native family in Peshawar, which is why Kanishk spared Patna's Ruler Subahu Nagar. The family was known as Devaputra, which means "Aryan," and was part of the Kushan Gujjar tribe". This claim needs verification, a book by Vidhya Prakash Tyagi was cited for this.

Conclusion: Throughout the article, there is a consistent emphasis on Gujjars being descendants of the Kushan Empire with many unsourced and original research additions. Cyber.Eyes.2005 (talk) 03:43, 8 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

User:TalanChopra repeated the same action here, re-adding unsourced and unreferenced claims that I had reverted. I won't be reverting any more of his edits until administrators make a decision to avoid edit wars. Cyber.Eyes.2005 (talk) 03:54, 8 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Cyber.Eyes.2005 no you mostly removed well sourced material from Kushan page only dedicated to Kushan clan of Gujjars even you removed well sourced content from Baisoya page related to Gujjars again you don't have the authority to remove large amount of content from Kushan page as you did and removed almost 3000 bites from Kushan page even in your all edit summaries you're continuesly using same edit summary with same tags WP:OR etc I think you are not familiar even your behavior is not very cool or you don't have cool temperament you request for Roll back right but unfortunately you don't have a cool temperament you don't even understand Wikipedia's basic policies that large amount of content should not be removed without starting a discussion at Talk page. TalanChopra (talk) 04:10, 8 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Your assertions that I lack the right to remove 3000 bits from an article? and that I removed sourced information are inaccurate. Additionally, I consistently provide detailed explanations in my edit summaries when necessary. Let's await a conclusion from the administrators. Cyber.Eyes.2005 (talk) 04:17, 8 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I am providing the link that I am not wrong you literally removed 3000 bites of text from Kushan page in your all sumaries you said don't you Kshatriya etc but Kushan clan page is according to Wikipedia Neutral point of view so according to neutral point of only in origin section by using well cited and reliable sources only Kshatriya word mentioned no matter is Kshatriya is an order in Hinduism but this page is for all Kushan Gujjars no matter they're Hindu, Sikh or Muslim so you should not try to labelled Kushan Gujjar page only for Muslim Kushan Gujjars because this page is only dedicated to Kushan clan of Gujjars found in Pakistan, Afghanistan and India among the Hindu, Muslim and Sikh Gujjars so in origin section Kshatriya term can be used according to Wikipedia neutral point of view. And please see this link you removed more then 3000 bites when I improved and add more headings, Content you intentionally removed more then 3000 bites of content. See this link [9] and before any solution my admins Administrators do not make any revert at Kushan, Gurjar clans or Baisoya pages and don't use Same Tage WP:OR etc. just be clam and try to understand Wikipedia is not a battle ground we should try to understand and should try to work together by maintaining Wikipedia basic guidelines, Rules and neutrality Thank you.

  • This user
at ver first this user changed context Kushan Gujjar clan of Afghanistan, Pakistan and India to clan of Punjab province without proving any sources even every section in the article was well cited before and now. The he Removed 3500 bites in two reverts at Kushan page within 24hours ([10]) and in his 3 of reverts he said don't add Kshatriya because Kshatriya is an order in Hinduism but Kshatriya I removed from lead and was remained in Origin section Because in cited sources clearly mentioned they're Kshatriya according to Hinduism and Kushan And other Gujjars are Devided in Hinduism, Islam and Sikhism even today so this page was according to Wikipedia neutral point of view And not just according to Muslim Kushan Gujjar that's why in origin section mentioned Kshatriya. He also used Original research tags more then 4th times at same page Kushan he even further used same tag at Baisoya (At Baisoya page he removed 500 bites and well sourced ethnography section saying that unsourced [11]) page of Gujjars also for no reason. He even Quickly nominated Gurjar clans ([12]) page just after then creation of few hours. After all he gave more then 2 or 3 warnings at my talk page just to show that I am new user and should be block etc. I also tried to solve issue with him at talk page hi clearly said no to any solution and showed some sort of arrogance ([13]) and he also gave wrong warnings at my talk page.

Trump Unite the Right Rally[change source]

True statement is There were very fine people on both sides, but im not talking about the Neo Nazis and White Nationalists, cause they should be condemned, but there were very fine people on both sides. Why not tell the truth, when the truth is out there. Biden ran on a lie and youre covering for him (talk) 10:36, 9 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Different people have different oipinions on politics; the U.S. has the election system it wanted. There are those who elected Trump, and those who didn't, as there are those who elected Biden, and those who didn't. There will soon be elections, where the people will pick a new president. Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, and articles are based on facts, references are needed. More controversial topics will need more/better references. So, dear IP what's the point you are trying to make?- The supreme court ruled that a decades-old nationwide allowance for abortions no longer holds; as a consequence, many states made their own abortion laws, which often reflect what party is in power there.

Abuse filter helper user right proposal[change source]

I was thinking if we could propose on having a local user right that allows (very) trusted users to view abuse filters and their logs marked as private, but not to change them. The regular English Wikipedia has this in addition to global abuse filter helpers, while the Simple English Wikipedia does not.

For the nomination process, they post the request here (because there is no change filter noticeboard), and it will remain open for a few days allowing users to support or oppose the user listed to get the right. After a few days pass and there is consensus to give the user AFH, an uninvolved admin will grant the right to them and close the discussion.

Any objections? If not, feel free to ask. – 64andtim (talk) 18:24, 9 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Honestly, I think that this is not needed. There are very few users dealing with abuse filters, and most (if not all) are admins anyway. Eptalon (talk) 17:28, 10 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
