Christianity and colonialism

I am still editing the document (just started). No need to delete contributions posted just a minute ago. ~30min later: I am still editing and adding references. Why did you revert the document back to its earlier version? Please elaborate.

Missing section heading for warnings?

Hey, I just noticed this warning that you placed on an IP that I assume was automated. For some reason your warning wasn't placed into a new level 2 section header and instead put in the October 2019 one. Just thought you should know. -- MarkH21talk 14:07, 2 March 2020 (UTC)

Help with gifted images for Commons

Hi, Materialscientist. I'm reaching out to you b/c you're an admin at Commons and I have a question about "gifted" images. I'm writing a biography on a Mexican outlaw (deceased since 1984) and was thinking of reaching out to his family to see if they can provide us with an image of the subject. I do volunteer research with a group of unpaid journalists for a news blog called Borderland Beat and they've requested images for other subjects we've reported on in the past. The criminal was alive in the pre-Internet era so no good pictures exist online. What do I have to do on my end to ensure this image(s) are uploaded within policy once I get a hold of them? Thanks in advance. MX (? o ?) 16:04, 2 March 2020 (UTC)

In short, there are two easy ways: 1) Commons:OTRS and 2) Resource: Non-free use rationale guideline (see Resource: Use rationale examples, Historical photographs, you can surely upload a headshot of that person, arguing that the person died, hence it is impossible to make his photograph). Materialscientist (talk) 16:17, 2 March 2020 (UTC)
Thank you. It had taken me hours but I knew I had seen something like that before. I'll contact a family member once the bio is done. Thanks again, MX (? o ?) 16:54, 2 March 2020 (UTC)

Promtional Blocks

Hey can you or another admin review the following users?

These four were declined on the username page [[4]] but the reason declining was a little on the well intended but BS side, no reason to wait with obvious WP:CORPNAME and misleading vios. Hell in a Bucket (talk) 17:00, 2 March 2020 (UTC)

I would wait for their first move (edit, deleted edit, edit filter log). Username block is a softblock, it does not resolve potential problems with those users. Materialscientist (talk) 17:05, 2 March 2020 (UTC)
To me that's like waiting for a person with a gun walking in the bank to pull it before taking precautions, that's probably a bit dramatic though. There is probably a reason you're an admin and I'm not though and this may well be one of those reasons. I will adjust my ideas on reporting those accounts to the page despite my disagreement. Hell in a Bucket (talk) 17:09, 2 March 2020 (UTC)
If you think about differences between the softblock (allowing creation of new accounts) and the hardblock, you'll understand our reasoning. It is hard to justify a hardblock for such usernames. Materialscientist (talk) 17:13, 2 March 2020 (UTC)
I appreciate the response, i guess the fact that they can just create an account and go about their way to do it all over again does make a small amount of sense. Hell in a Bucket (talk) 17:20, 2 March 2020 (UTC)

Your deletion today in the stainless steel page

You've deleted part of my contribution on the grounds that it was unsourced.

I find this grossly unfair and rude. - first, the reference given supports the text. I had in mind to add more when I have more time. - second, you might have asked to add further references. I would have been happy to oblige - third, I have had in the past material removed on the ground that there was too much detail. What is right seems to vary with reviewers

Such deleting is a very efficient way of discouraging contributors. I am spending time trying to contribute on a topic I have been working on for many years as research metallurgist and as product development manager before I retired.

Now, what happens? How many references do you want to bring back the text you deleted? 4? 10? more?

Please answer Mtl-371 (talk) 17:24, 2 March 2020 (UTC)

Thank you for your reply and for your suggestions. I will try to do a better job next time! I hope I did put this at the right place Mtl-371 (talk) 16:33, 4 March 2020 (UTC)

retracting entry on intervention thread

Relating to an IP editor I reported at WP:Administrator_intervention_against_vandalism. After more thorough check, I see a few have issues, but others were not completely bogus. I'd just remove it, but since there are your replies to it, I'm not sure the appropriate way of removing it without confusing the bot. How do I remove it properly?

Thank you for reverting the vandal edit at Special:Diff/943761738. Kudos to for your efforts.

Please review

...the indefinite protection on the DNA article. Five years is a very long time. Despite the continuing FA status, datedness of the article is beginning to set in, and there are persistent small issues with poor citations (e.g., whole book, rather than book pages) or content lacking sufficient secondary sourcing (and so WP:VER / WP:PSTS violations). Many faculty members will not register. We should not throw the baby (sources of good edits) out with the bathwater (the inevitable vandalism that attends high profile articles). The bots can now, in 2020, catch most instances of vandalism--aren't the good quality edits that might come worth the work required to revert the stray, last few that the bots do not catch? 2601:246:C700:19D:EC05:D6AB:3F04:2E0A (talk) 01:35, 4 March 2020 (UTC)

Increase Protection levels of Shiv Ram Singh Inter College

Hello I'm Vivek ji123 I see Shiv Ram Singh Inter College pagevis semi-protected. I requested to you please increase the level of Shiv Ram Singh Inter College. Protect "Infinite".I am Administrator of Art Music Wiki Fandom. [Vivek ji123 ] and I add protection templates in Shiv Ram Singh Inter College Vivek ji123 (talk) 7:49 Am. 06March 2020 (UTC). (Thanks for taking) .

(talk page watcher) Hi Vivek ji123. The next level of protection would be WP:BLUELOCK which would also mean that autoconfirmed and confirmed editors whould be unable to edit the article. Doesn't that seem a bit too restrictive of a response since most of the disruption appears to be from unregistered accounts?
Just a few other things unrelated to the above, but you might want to reconsider how much personal information you post about yourself on your user talk page per WP:REALWORLD, particularly since you might still might be considered a WP:YOUNG editor when it comes to Wikipedia. You might also want to consider the size of the photo your displying on your userpage; try and remember that people are accessing resource from all over the world using all kinds of devices, and you might want to take WP:ACCIM and WP:IMGSIZE into account even though your user page isn't an article so to speak. -- Marchjuly (talk) 02:42, 6 March 2020 (UTC)

Hello Materialscientist, please remove. :=) Regards --Serols (talk) 08:04, 8 March 2020 (UTC)

In regards to Bryan Emmett Clark,

Please permanently remove:

"In February 2020, Clark was arrested in Arizona on multiple felonious drug charges that took place between January and April 2019. His charges include conspiracy, transporting and/or selling narcotics, and possessing a weapon during a drug offense.[20]"

This is an ongoing investigation and are based on false allegations and are slanderous. Meanwhile you are adding to the ruination of this man's reputation that he spent years building. He has a very loyal fan base and they don't need to see this misinformation. I have removed it several times, but it keeps coming back. PLEASE REMOVE IT

That isn't misinformation to report he got arrested. It doesn't state he is guilty, Michael Jackson had a similar issue and if it is reliably reported on it will be included. That's why it keeps popping up, we aren't here to build or destroy anything, simply write what has been reported. Hell in a Bucket (talk) 17:02, 8 March 2020 (UTC)

You are still negatively impacting his life and reputation. Why don't you wait until there is a final outcome!!! How would you like to be in his shoes and have a complete stranger do this to you

It's misinformative to describe untested charges as "felonious", "his" or something "that took place". Also misleading to omit the not guilty plea. Better now, not suggesting either side is telling the truth. InedibleHulk (talk) 10:47, 25 March 2020 (UTC)

Varma Kalai wrong info

Varma kalai is traced back to 250BCE, malayalam has a written proof from 9th century, how can varma kalai is malayalam traditional art? most of the core components of Varmakalai are traced back to ancient Tamilkam and Sangam literature. The Varma kalai page has significant reference to Siddha medicine, Agastya, Bogar who all are linked to Tamil. even then you will mention it as malayalam Tradition. Truth will prevail one day.

Where were you when this page was edited by unknown person to malayalam language

Since the last 10 years the Varma Kalai page was refering to Tamil Traditional Arts, Some unknown person has edited it to Malayalam Trandition art and you didn't seen to bother, when I reverted his distructive edits you say My edits where not constructive.

Beachy Head Adaptation Section


As a class at my university we are working to improve the "Beachy Head" entry. Right now we are simply testing the system out - most of us have never entered or edited a resource Entry. The little "Adaptation" section was just to show how editing works. We will make major edits this Friday (March 13th) - please bear with us and do not act too quickly to reverse our entries - we're likely going to move in increments in order not to mess up the page or cause chaos in the entry.

Thanks for your edits.

Know that I both appreciate the essential countervandalism work you do and regret the personal attacks you suffer from mean-spirited people on behalf of the encyclopedia you protect.

Kith Meng Entry on Wikipedia

Please remove this paragraph at the Politics section of Kith Meng's page:

In June 2011, WikiLeaks exposed an American diplomatic cable calling Meng a "relatively young and ruthless gangster".[1] Meng has received particular criticism regarding his land deals and land rights, being accused of using his political connections to forcefully clear questionably acquired real estate of residents and national monuments in order to proceed with development.[2][3] Meng and his companies have also been the center of controversies regarding environmental issues in Cambodia, most prominently illegal logging in protected areas of the northeast (including Virachey National Park) displacing indigenous villages[4] and destroying rural villages and fishing grounds for hydroelectric projects without compensation or proper environmental assessment reports.[5]

You this accusation about Mr. Meng's character as a gangster is completely unfounded and is based purely on an author's subjectivity. Second, accusations that Royal Group is involved in illegal logging activities have already been unproven in Cambodian Courts and have been retracted by the Cambodian police. These are the article to the links: article 1 and article 2

reversion to the edits on Night of Qadr

Hello Materialscientist. Your message says that you have reverted some of my edits, but it seems you have reverted all of them, including my carefully documented addition to the "Date". Is there a reason for that?

Kulitan edit revert

Hi, my Kulitan edit of it being used from the 1980s to present is accurate. There was an ancient Kapampangan script used prior to Spanish arrival, but it fell out of use over time with colonization. The script, whose picture you see vertically written out on its page, is a modern take on the ancient script and this was invented sometimes in the 80s. It's name, "Kulitan," was also coined in the 1980s; it was never referred to as "Kulitan" until only within the last 40 or so years.

Please let me know how you want to proceed, because I do believe my edits to be accurate and objectively true.


Please would you kindly consider blocking the above user. Their user contributions page is here. The problem is that this editor makes long edits which may or may not contain valid information, and is often off-topic. It is difficult to assess content because the use of English language is poor enough to be very confusing. It doesn't help that this editor often does not support the long edits with sufficient citations. This editor has recently written a very long explanation of editorial intention on their talkpage, but it was mostly incomprehensible. I replied briefly that short edits and clear English would improve things, but this editor just deleted it. I honestly don't think that it would be possible to help this editor to make useful edits in the short term, because they don't appear to understand what the problem is. I have tried reverting their edits, but they just undo my revert and do another long edit, mostly in incomprehensible English. This is a sad situation - this editor appears to be genuinely well-intentioned, but has been making some very useful articles useless to the public. Storye book (talk) 08:15, 18 March 2020 (UTC)

Extended-confirmed protected request

Proposal to move the 2020 coronavirus pandemic in Pakistan from semi-protected to extended-confirmed. Currently there are multiple edits on a daily basis with poor sources and redundant information. Newer editors unfamiliar with resource seem to edit it as they please with no regard to proper format or respect for what the previous editors have done. This is specially the case with editing the number of overview cases and adding information haywire as it is made available on media without any sources or unreliable ones. I can barely keep up. -- Shawnqual (talk) 18:55, 21 March 2020 (UTC)

The map on that page is wrong, why don't you remove it first? it contains part of India and is just propaganda by you and the uploader of the image. I see on the talk it was asked earlier too to remove it which was conveniently ignored.

RE: Derby Pie

RE: Derby Pie - Requesting Citations for article corrections Asking for citations? No citations available. The Derby Pie was created in my grandmother's kitchen! The two women were friends and often 'cooked up' ideas together. In this particular case, what eventually came to be known as Derby Pie was a mutual creation and NOT some idle kitchen musings of the restaurant/bakery's mother and/or father. The family waited until after my grandmother's passing before filing for a patent. But there is no one alive today who had anything to do with the creation of the pie and the mythology surrounding it is absolutely wrong. (talk) 19:42, 21 March 2020 (UTC)

"non-constructive" edit

Why was my edit non-constructive? The article clearly states that the track was changed in 1988, obviously after the 1986 race. The info-box claimed that the 400 laps on a 1/2 mile track was a 300-mile race, clearly incorrect. (talk) 22:50, 22 March 2020 (UTC)


Checkuser request

Greetings and my Salaams. This is a checkuser request to you for User:Authordom (old ID - User:Kutyava). I have been editing resource since 2012 and never have made this kind of request or even a minor complaint to any other resource administrators against anyone in my 7 years history of editing. Since you are an administrator, you can verify this from my resource records and history. But this person has pushed me over the edge. Seems to me - he is systematically and cleverly targeting all Islamic religious groups or sects other than his own religious group in South India, headed by Kanthapuram A. P. Aboobacker Musliyar. From all his Deletion Nominations both on AfD India and AfD Pakistan within last couple months, you can see his pattern of nominations and draw your conclusions. Personally I have never retaliated against him and have never nominated even a SINGLE Wiki article for deletion - religious or non-religious....period! So you can also verify this that I have not provoked him. For example, please just pick up Maulana Asad Madani's nomination by him which resulted as ('Result:Keep') on 12 March 2020. *Asad Madani Ngrewal1 (talk) 01:29, 23 March 2020 (UTC)

Possible IP block?

Materialscientist, we've had three IPs from 103.105.2x.x[x] vandalize the Strictly Come Dancing article over the past nine days, adding an 18th season and competitors half a year before they're known (and with similar names in each edit): first March 14, then March 21, and finally today. The individual IP addresses have only been used once thus far, for editing the Strictly article.

Is there any chance you can do some sort of a range block to stop this editor? Thanks for whatever you feel is appropriate to do. If it's too soon to block, but one or two more will be sufficient, please let me know, and I'll be happy to keep you informed. BlueMoonset (talk) 20:14, 23 March 2020 (UTC)

Rangeblock is unlikely in this case. Semiprotected the target instead. Materialscientist (talk) 23:47, 23 March 2020 (UTC)

persistent problems with a new editor

Hi. Just a heads-up. Based on the comments at User_talk:Nick_Falcão you've already warned this new editor, more than once. The pattern of failing to provide citations is continuing, as well as making claims not supported by the articles he has cited. I just tried to explain to him one more time in Portuguese, to see if that helps, but have a feeling that he may not stop. As these are all articles dealing with venomous animals, I think it especially important to be wary of poorly-sourced edits; it might be worth checking in on him in a few days and see whether he has ignored the most recent warnings, and step in if you agree.

You really like grammar such as It should not be applied as a protection level of the first resort. and administrators may unprotect a page if the reason for its protection no longer applies, a reasonable period has elapsed, and no consensus continued protection is necessary.? Suit yourself... Elizium23 (talk) 19:02, 27 March 2020 (UTC)

Eh, Edzm12 fixed multiple weasels. I wish you fixed their blunders, instead of reverting. And reporting that user as VOA to WP:AIV was definitely out of line. Materialscientist (talk) 19:09, 27 March 2020 (UTC)
WP:ANI it is, then. Elizium23 (talk) 19:16, 27 March 2020 (UTC)
I've been over the diff three times. I don't see anything constructive. I don't see any "weasel words" anywhere, for that matter. Elizium23 (talk) 19:18, 27 March 2020 (UTC)
As for the grammar, that just idiomatic and really doesn't need to be changed. What sounds good to your ear may seem off to others and vise versa, such as in Britain they often say "university" (ie: I take classes at university.) whereas in the US we usually say "the university" (I take classes at the university). Either way, it means the same thing. In general, the fewer words; the better, but no point quibbling over it, and to some degree WP:ENGVAR may apply. The key is when it's about what you "like" and not what helps improve the actual syntax for clarity. Zaereth (talk) 19:26, 27 March 2020 (UTC)
Zaereth, are you trying to tell me that Edzm12's changes to Resource: Protection policy are idiomatic and not blatant errors? Even the sentences I quoted? I must not no English much well. Elizium23 (talk) 19:28, 27 March 2020 (UTC)
Yes. Especially the sentence you posted here. If you have further questions about it, I'd suggest asking Tony1, who is Wikipedia's foremost expert on the subject. I would not call that vandalism by any stretch, but a good faith effort to help improve the encyclopedia, even if it does add some unnecessary words or disagrees with your own taste. Zaereth (talk) 19:34, 27 March 2020 (UTC)

Pakistani Propaganda against India

On the article 2020 coronavirus pandemic in Pakistan, the map is wrong and contain parts of India in this image I see above that you locked that page, can you remove the lock or just remove this pic? it is just part of propaganda by one of the uploaders.

I also don't see any reason for locking that page? there are barely any edits and just one person has taken over the whole page.

(talk page stalker) The map looks fine to me. The Line of Control appears to be correct, with the non-Pakistani controlled Kashmir in dark gray. EvergreenFir (talk) 21:07, 28 March 2020 (UTC)
