User:Hammad.511234 reported by User:Barthateslisa (Result: Blocked)[edit]

Page: Biryani (edit | talk | history | links | watch | logs)
User being reported: Hammad.511234 (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · logs · edit filter log · block user · block log)

The user is persistently adding his POV on the mentioned page, he started it on 16th May, was reverted by others and started again on 29th May. The subject of the page is Biryani, and there is whole section devoted to its origin, but User:Hammad.511234 is keen on adding his POV as a sweeping statement about its origin in the intro para, I invited him on the talk page, told him about his error but the user is too confident about his own theories.

Here is the user first on 16th May and then again on 29th May.

  • Result: User:Hammad.511234 is warned. If they revert this article again before getting a talk page consensus, or they engage in more personal attacks they may be blocked. In your edit summary you said "The person who changed this really hates the word Muslim." Instead of hating the word Muslim, perhaps the editor you are criticizing just disagrees with your reading of the sources. EdJohnston (talk) 15:22, 2 June 2016 (UTC)

EdJohnston Well I disagree with his vandalizing of my edits. It's been sourced, and it's a fact. Later in the article, he also changed the Turkish and Muslim communities of Macedonia to Turkish communities of Macedonia. Turkish Macedonians, and Muslim Macedonians are two different groups. He also removed the word "Muslim" centres, and made it Mughal centres, when the book that it's sourced from, said Mughal, and Lucknow, hasn't been under Mughal rule for years. Everyone in South Asia knows that only Muslims make Biryani. That's like me saying that Matzoh ball soup originates from Germany, and not the Jews of Germany. Sources used later in the page also support claim, but he wants to put his POVS in the article. His vandalizing of my edits wasn't justified, as the source was completely credible. He reverted all my edits. If you want proof of my statements, than here... "And how did it spread all over India to become the defining dish of nearly every Muslim community?" "Biryani has always been synonymous with the Muslim community in India just as vada pao is to the Marathi cuisine, or idli sambar to the Tamil community, or sarson da saag and makki di roti to the Jat and butter chicken to the Punjabi." "Nearly everywhere in India, wherever there is a Muslim community, there is a biryani." or how about this book that is sourced many times in the wikipedia page... "The Indian subcontinent owes a deep debt the the Muslim community, for it is they who introduced the gamut of biryanis and pulaos to us." The person who's been vandalizing my edits clearly has a problem with the word Muslim, as he removed it three times. Why is it that Biryani is found in almost every Muslim community in the Indian subcontinent? That's because every biryani has it's origin among South Asian Muslims, and it's only found in South Asian Muslim cuisine. So idk why I've been reported, when he's been doing wrong. Thank you.

You are still not getting whats the issue here, its you, who have started pushing your POV, everyone has a POV, but thats not for Wikipedia, its an encyclopedia. You started with POV, first on 16th May, you were reverted by others and then you started again on the 29th and its been a chain since then. Time and again, I have told you there is an origin section for the subject, which is a dish, but no, you have to ignore the section, all of its sourced content and continue with your edits, at least bother to read the section I am pointing. On top of that you are judging me. Just look at the discussion again. Barthateslisa (talk) 14:06, 3 June 2016 (UTC)
  • Result: Since User:Hammad.511234 has responded here and continues to repeat the personal attack (that Barthateslisa is anti-Muslim) here at the noticeboard, I'm going ahead with a 48-hour block of Hammad for personal attacks. EdJohnston (talk) 20:14, 2 June 2016 (UTC)

User:Hammad.511234 is back after his block and is not cooperating, still not sticking to the talk page and is pushing his POV, time and again I have reminded him about the relevant section on the page, but its as if he has made it a habit of doing it his way, plz intervene.

Has been warned in edit summaries and on talk page. Continues to revert and ignore the fact that the proposed article fails WP:BLP1E. Has now called me biased, which is definitely not assuming good faith, and could be seen as a personal attack. Amccann421 (talk) 04:18, 5 June 2016 (UTC)

I'm one of the warner/reverters. In very tepid semi-defence of the perp, I'll say that what he insists on adding the name to is a pretty dreadful list, many of which are of nobodies convicted (or merely accused) of this or that crime and notable for nothing else. The target page cries out for radical pruning. -- Hoary (talk) 05:43, 5 June 2016 (UTC)

Amitashi (talk) 22:34, 4 June 2016 (UTC) My new edit completes peviously logically incompleted paragraph. My previous edits were reverted because of cites. I included new cites and reverted information on refugees that was part of article before my very first edit on it.

I count 5 diffs where you provided sources, so that wasn't the issue. Before your block, Toddy1 reverted you and pointed to the talk page for discussion ([8]). You failed to engage in discussion there and instead re-added the materials after your block expired. EvergreenFir (talk) Please {{re}} 22:39, 4 June 2016 (UTC)
ANI report filed, I linked to this discussion. WCMemail 22:42, 4 June 2016 (UTC)

Amitashi (talk) 22:44, 4 June 2016 (UTC)I admitted Toddy1's criticism on previous cites and added new cites in my new edit. What you doing now is doubling previous report! Details: Before my last edit paragraph was logically incomplete! It began with "Separately, in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions...". But that doesn't logically link to anything! So I added centence on protests. Now it is logically commpleted: "Protests... Separately, in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions..." My previous edits on Ukraine were already mentioned in previous report. And I already served my ban sentence for that. Now when I suggested constructive change you want to put me in jail again for sin I already worked out. For admin: I already said that I learned Wikipedia's edit policy and will not do edit warring if will face resistance. I will use Talk page instead. Thus I find OK that I suggested constructive improvement of article. If it will be rejected I will use Talk page.

@Amitashi: The blocks are not simply "jail time" that you serve in exchange for doing something -- they are to stop you from continuing that action. If you keep up the same behavior after a block, it is a lie to say that you've learned from it. WP:Edit warring is not simply a red line that's OK to dance in front of as long as you never cross it -- you need to avoid re-adding material when it is obvious that the consensus is against adding that material. Ian.thomson (talk) 23:06, 4 June 2016 (UTC)

Ian.thomson, it seems you do not understand quality of my actions. As I said my new improvements are essential for logic of article. And as long as I was criticized for cites I replaced them. So it is not warring it is doing what other editors asked me. Amitashi (talk) 23:14, 4 June 2016 (UTC)

@Amitashi: by saying "it is not warring," you are only proving that you have learned nothing and know nothing about edit warring. You were given plenty of resistance last time to those edits. You did not seek consensus for those edits, but instead started up again with the same behavior and only went to the talk page after it became clear that you can be blocked for this behavior. I've explained this repeatedly, but you do not seem to be listening at all. Ian.thomson (talk) 23:27, 4 June 2016 (UTC)

Amitashi (talk) 23:41, 4 June 2016 (UTC):Ian.thomson, no your ban threat doesn't influence my actions. I follow my own strategy by which I use Talk page when I face resistance to my edits. And as I mentioned at your Talk page you deleted more than I added. You deleted other users' contribution on regugees that were presented in article before June 2nd (my entrance). I violated nothing with one edit being in limit of three same edits per day. Also it wasn't same edit as previous because it has new citations and brings essential logical improvement of article.

This is the exact action I took. You are completely wrong, and it is beside the point. The material was removed by Volunteer Marek and again by My very best wishes. To say that I removed it is wrong, and showing you this this evidence it would be a lie for you to ever again say that I removed it.
You don't think that being reverted 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 times is resistance? Why did you ignore that resistance completely? It wasn't a separate and distinct incident, the block does not make that "the past" and unrelated, you continued the same behavior from the previous incident.
The three-revert rule is not a privilege, it is something you need to stay away from. As WP:3RR says "The three-revert rule is a convenient limit for occasions when an edit war is happening fairly quickly, but it is not a definition of "edit warring", and it is perfectly possible to edit war without breaking the three-revert rule, or even coming close to doing so." Once again: you came out of a block and started back with the same behavior that got you blocked. You clearly have not learned anything. Ian.thomson (talk) 23:58, 4 June 2016 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting support.svg Page protected There are four reverts including the first edit which reverted the new text out, but you don't have to show 4 for it to be warring, that is just one sign that someone needs a block. In this instance, I chose to instead full protect the article for 2 days while a consensus is built on the talk page and while sources can be found, or shown to not exist. This is a rather silly edit war and blocking seems pointless. Once the protection expires, if it goes back to multiple reverts, there will likely be blocks without getting to 4RR, as a continuation of an edit war. Dennis Brown - 00:11, 6 June 2016 (UTC)

Dapi has breached WP:OWN with his assertions on my talk page, and will not correct the incorrect translation in the article that he keeps reinserting (even after it has been pointed out several times).2600:1015:B126:631E:7D14:6B4E:50C1:FA72 (talk) 15:39, 5 June 2016 (UTC)
This person doesn't understand what that means. The original content editor reserves the right to spell the article and use whatever title they choose. Dapi89 (talk) 15:41, 5 June 2016 (UTC)
And second, can he explain why he does not consider Wehrmacht to mean "German forces"? What other forces could it mean? Dapi89 (talk) 15:42, 5 June 2016 (UTC)
The correct translation, as pointed out several times to you despite you ignoring them, is "armed forces". You cannot provide a translation and half ass it like you did. Regardless of your argument, your spelling was challenged and being the original editor has no bearing since you do not own the article.2600:1015:B126:631E:7D14:6B4E:50C1:FA72 (talk) 15:46, 5 June 2016 (UTC)

Wrong. I sent him a message, he ignored it. And you know WP:RETAIN is valid grounds for retaining "World War II". An opinion on that would be better, rather than stating the obvious (edit war). The link he added is wrong (also not in source). Dapi89 (talk) 16:00, 5 June 2016 (UTC)
  • No; I'm right. Sending him a message saying he's 'confused' and continuing the edit-war = not great. Indeed, he replied to it, rather than ignore it, as you say. Anyway. That's me done. Ciao! Muffled Pocketed 16:22, 5 June 2016 (UTC)
You may say we are both in the wrong and the subject is over, yet Dapi has carried on the dispute and essentially gets go have his own way dispute three pieces of info being brought into dispute.
"German forces" does not translate as Wehrmacht, as Dapi has presented the information in the article. German "armed forces" would be more appropriate in the context (of keeping the translation). Other alternatives include removing the translation, rewording the sentence, or piping "German forces". Two attempts have been tried (rewording and removal), yet Dapi reverts for no other reason than because am an anon (or at least the attitude suggests so). So what, the whole argument has to be rehashed on the talk page where Dapi will no doubt ignore constructive criticism because they feel they own the article? Likewise rehash on the talk page the dispute over using a more British term than American, and what link is more valuable?2600:1015:B126:631E:7D14:6B4E:50C1:FA72 (talk) 17:21, 5 June 2016 (UTC)
I would also point out that WP:Retain includes a disclaimer of terms that have strong national ties; Second World War has been in use by Brits since said war, that is nearly 80 years of strong ties.2600:1015:B126:631E:7D14:6B4E:50C1:FA72 (talk) 17:23, 5 June 2016 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting support.svg Page protected – there appears to be a content dispute on the page. Consider dispute resolution. The fact is, you are both into 4RR territory. The talk page makes it clear there are some serious and valid concerns about WP:GALLERY at stake and including them isn't as simple as Sarbaze says considering the content doesn't represent the event and there is the question of how does a gallery help the understanding of the event anyway. These are things you have to discuss on the talk page and get consensus for. The IP, on the other hand, refuses to communicate and tempted me to block simply by the bullheadedness of their reverts and unwillingness to discuss. If the IP isn't going to discuss, they need to stop reverting or they will be blocked. See WP:COMMUNICATE. The protection will expire in two days, I suggest not changing anything without a consensus to include because it will not require 4 reverts to block once it expires: if it seems obvious that the warring resumes, the edit warriors will be blocked without warning.

The user has been changing my edits without any valid reason. Biryani is found among the Muslims of the Indian subcontinent, and everyone knows this. There were even have sources down, 4 in fact, and it's necessary to tell people where the dish originates from. The user also changed the word "Muslim" to "Mughal" when the book sourced says Muslim, and Lucknow was free of Mughal rule since 1724, and Awadhi cusine developed it's own unique taste separate from Mughal cusine.

This is in continuation of This report on Administrators' noticeboard above, I lodged a few days ago, after which Hammad.511234 was blocked for making personal attacks. The User is back again and instead of cooperating on the talk page, he is again busy pushing his POV. This is the discussion on the talk page that the user has been asked to engage in again and again, but instead of sticking to it he pushes his choice of the content on the page. He started this on 16th May, he was reverted by other users, he again started with his POV on 29th May.

While not reverting to the exact version, it is a previous version by that editor with the 1914 year of birth he is bizarrely attached to, no matter now much evidence to the contrary is provided. He keeps making reference to a Youtube video (see article's talk page or edit summary for diff #2), yet ignores me and another editor who repeatedly point out the video is from 2006 and that multiple reliable sources deal with his 100th birthday celebrations in 2012 (obviously making a 1914 year of birth highly problematic) or the large number of sources covering his death that has he was 104 (again, making a 1914 year of birth highly problematic).

  • Stop x nuvola with clock.svg Blocked – for a period of 24 hours.

  • Fixed the malformed report. I'd like to note that Adamstraw99 is as guilty as Tejgavate as far as edit warring on this article goes. In addition there's misplaced warnings from the complainant on the other user's page regarding promotion of non-notables etc etc. The user is trying to add some reasonable content such as Vasant Shankar Kanetkar, Vinayak Damodar Savarkar and the likes as being notable in the field of art and culture of the city and is constantly being reverted and being issued inappropriate warnings. At this point I think that Adamstraw99 has been more disruptive here than the other user. —SpacemanSpiff 17:36, 6 June 2016 (UTC)

I understand my mistake.... I didn't know the other user was inserting names of notable people... it was all looking like self-promotions and adverts.. and the website they were inserting was definitely SPAM... though i take this complaint back as the user has removed promotional section... thanks Adamstraw99 (talk) 17:46, 6 June 2016 (UTC)

  1. 06:10, 7 June 2016 (UTC) "/* June 2016 */ new section" — I recommended they discuss disputed content on talk page.

Democratic Party presidential primaries, 2016 currently has WP:1RR imposed on it. Said user in question added content, it was removed. They proceeded to reverting. Their edit was then undone. Finally, they violated 1RR in restoring disputed content into the article - despite being asked to discuss said content on the talk page. —MelbourneStartalk 06:42, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

I was in the middle of editing the second revision during when I received said message from the user who reported me. Lack of reason to delete my first addition to the page. If Bernie Sanders still being in the running isn't important information on the democratic primary page, then it should be deleted he is still in the running from the 2016 President election page as well. -Cax17 06:54, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

You are not allowed to revert more than once in a 24-hour period on this article or any other article under the scope of WP:1RR. You are speaking of a content dispute which ought to be discussed on the article's talk page — not in an edit war. —MelbourneStartalk 07:10, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

I don't edit very often, as you can see by my few contributions over the last seven years. But leading voters into the assumption the race is over, when it isn't, is being biased. The remaining states would have a right to have their voices heard. -Cax17 — Preceding unsigned comment added by Cax17 (talkcontribs) 07:17, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

That's an argument for the content you wish to be added in; the venue to air such view (considering others disagree with you) is here: Talk:Democratic Party presidential primaries, 2016. That does not excuse you from reverting more than once on an article that has WP:1RR, and despite being asked of you to discuss your changes. —MelbourneStartalk 07:20, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

The first revision I did was because it contained vandalism towards the presumptive Republican nominee, if you would like to go back and view that. And as I've stated, I did not receive your message until I was in the middle of undoing your deletion to give it actual sources, and making it sound more neutral.-Cax17 — Preceding unsigned comment added by Cax17 (talk—Preceding undated comment added 07:38, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

That would be your third reversion, which is allowed as it was vandalism you reverted. The other reversion was not, as it was a content dispute.
You could have undone your edit, mitigating the violation and hence the report – you did not. —MelbourneStartalk 07:51, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

The entire point was to make it as apparent as Clinton is the presumptive nominee, as it was to show that Bernie Sanders is still in the race , and just leaving it that she is the presumptive nominee is a disservice to those who have not voted yet. In the future of any high profile pages I may wish to edit, I will just revise what I wrote , rather than reverse its deletion, than revise it. What is in the page now is far more neutral, while still maintaining that Sanders is staying in the race. To me, a statement directly from the campaign held more credence than a news source reporting on it, but now I know otherwise par wikipedia standards. Reporting me wasn't necessary, as it was a mistake made that won't be repeated. Chandler (talk) 08:04 , 7 June 2016 (UTC)

I made a mistake and I was wrong, but accusing me of edit warring is as well. I was trying to find a better source and use more neutral wording, and now I have. I discussed it with the user who most recently deleted my edit, and what I have now is more than acceptable. Chandler (talk) 07:21, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

You could have very well articulated that message on the article's talk page as was asked of you to do prior you editing past WP:1RR, and prior this report. I had not only warned you about WP:1RR prior to you breaking it, but rather: recommended you discuss your edits with others on the talk page. You did not. Hence why we find ourselves here.
Reverting other users' edits beyond once pertaining to a content dispute: is by definition edit warring.
With that said, considering you've owned up to this error of judgement, and furthermore have said you will not allow it to happen again — I'll withdraw this report. Best, —MelbourneStartalk 08:17, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

───────────────────────── Withdrawn – As the reporter, I've withdrawn this report on the basis that the editor in question has taken responsibility for their actions, has pledged to not allow such mistake to re-occur. Furthermore, the content dispute which precipitated this WP:1RR issue has been dealt with. —MelbourneStartalk 08:17, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

Appreciated. As I said, I did not receive notice of your messages because I was in the middle of my mistaken second reversion already. I don't normally edit on Wikipedia, but as this is a huge source of information for many people, I felt it necessary to let it be known that Bernie Sanders is still running, as wikipedia should be more neutral than the media. Millions of people are voting in the next 24 hours, and if one Major source of information can be neutral, then I've done my job.

Heated discussion, trying to root out the pseudoscientific creationist arguments. Looks like it's died down somewhat now. I will be more careful in the future. jps (talk) 12:37, 4 June 2016 (UTC)

The argument is heated because I9Q79oL78KiL0QTFHgyc made it so. I9Q79oL78KiL0QTFHgyc insults editors:[58], [59], [60], then claims that he/she isn't insulting them: [61]. Now this editor is claiming that he/she will be more careful in the future. Since I9Q79oL78KiL0QTFHgyc has a long history of edit warring, I think a long and possibly permanent sanction is in order. Isambard Kingdom (talk) 12:52, 4 June 2016 (UTC)

The argument is heated because pseudoscience is not supposed to be promoted in Wikipedia. The fact that we have pseudoscience promoters parking on articles and their (perhaps unwitting) ignorant supporters attempting to WP:OWN articles on creationism is a bug in the Wikipedia model. It would be good if you stayed away from such topics as you've also demonstrated your lack of competence with regards to this particular subject. jps (talk) 13:42, 4 June 2016 (UTC)
This is an example of unnecessary personalizing the discussion. Speaking only for myself, I don't think I'm an "ignorant supporter" of pseudoscience! Isambard Kingdom (talk) 13:46, 4 June 2016 (UTC)
I'm glad you don't think that, but it was clear from your commentary that you do not have a firm grasp on the fact that the Earth is billions of years old. You claimed, embarrassingly and falsely, that the age of the Earth was mostly a statistical inference which is simply incorrect and a misconception often trotted out by Young Earth Creationists. You may not be intending to support pseudoscience, but intent is not the same as impact. jps (talk) 13:50, 4 June 2016 (UTC)
The personal attacks continue. I9Q79oL78KiL0QTFHgyc is focussed on the word "fact", a word that is not often used by scientists, who at least try to maintain a certain level of objectivity and humility in the context of inferences based on assumptions (plausible though they may be) and data. I don't have any personal doubt that the age of the Earth is very close to what the scientific consensus holds, but I don't assert that those estimates are merely "facts". The subject is much richer than that. Isambard Kingdom (talk) 13:56, 4 June 2016 (UTC)
Again incorrect. The age of the Earth is a fact. You can go ahead and talk to any number of geologists and astronomers and see why that is the case, if you'd like. In fact (pun intended), you could talk to one right here, but it seems that you simply don't want to acknowledge your own ignorance on the subject which I pointed out. The age of the Earth is manifestly not "mostly a statistical inference". By spouting such incorrect ideas you belie your lack of competence in these matters. Why you are doing so or what your motivation is immaterial. It ultimately causes problems for Wikipedia to allow people who are ignorant and incompetent to contribute to discussions like this. jps (talk) 14:00, 4 June 2016 (UTC)

I do not wish to bring levity to such a serious issue, but it is a personal attack to say that I have smelly feet (and I also do not understand how we should "look" for a smell). DrChrissy (talk) 14:32, 4 June 2016 (UTC)
The statement above that Fortuna and I collaborate on fish articles is totally baseless. This is clearly an attempt to malign other editors responding to this thread and misleads the community. DrChrissy (talk) 15:53, 4 June 2016 (UTC)
It's a mildly bizarre accusation in any case; and does not yet qualify for 'Crime of the century... Muffled Pocketed 15:56, 4 June 2016 (UTC)

  • Comment: I've interacted with the editor in question on the Talk page of another contentious article, the White Pride, on the thread that I started: Follow up to RSN. I found the editor's actions to be bold, but straightforward and policy based. For the article in questions, multiple editors were reverting the language advocated by the editor (I've found their version to be an improvement and started the discussion on the Talk page: Scientific consensus wording). The reverts were happening while the discussion was on-going, and leaning towards the support of the version advocated by jps. Nonetheless, multiple editors reverted back to the contentious wording. In this regards, I'd agree with editor Lipsquid that this was a "bad faith edit", for example. K.e.coffman (talk) 17:12, 4 June 2016 (UTC)
  • Comment: I was on the other side of jps in an astronomy-related dispute on Earth_Similarity_Index. He responded to an AfD vote he disagreed with by accusing me of "wikistalking." When DrChrissy expressed similar disagreement he too was accused of wikistalking. Note that consensus ended up favoring our position despite jps' 3 or 4 consecutive AfD nominations.
There's a pattern (continued here) of jps personalizing disputes. Once he's identified the "bad guys" in a topic the rules don't apply because he's right and they're wrong, and whatever he does is in the best interest of the encyclopedia. I don't know how to correct that but I think it's important to put this incident in context. James J. Lambden (talk) 20:33, 4 June 2016 (UTC)
Did you forget being on the other side of jps on white pride? jps (talk) 20:37, 4 June 2016 (UTC)
Yep, I was also on the receiving end of the edit warring against consensus by editor James J. Lambden: my edit (based on Talk page discussion) & revert by James J. Lambden, on White pride. K.e.coffman (talk) 01:47, 5 June 2016 (UTC)
K.e.coffman, this was the state of the talk page discussion at the time I reverted with the edit summary "no consensus." It shows no consensus for your removal. Per BRD I reverted, and jps edit-warred to restore your removal. These edits followed a discussion at RSN where jps and others petitioned to remove the same source (in fact I see a number of instances where your edits and jps' overlap) which also closed with no consensus. I stand by my edit and when consensus on the talk page arguably shifted towards removal I accepted it. I believe that's how we're encouraged to edit by policy.
What any of this has to do with jps passing 3RR and personalizing disputes I don't know but you seem to be the only commenter (other than jps himself) who doesn't see a problem here. I've said what I had to say. You're free to submit a report against me if you feel I've violated policy. James J. Lambden (talk) 02:20, 5 June 2016 (UTC)
It's okay, James J. Lambden. We've been monitoring your off-wiki actions as well. We'll get to you in due time. jps (talk) 03:07, 5 June 2016 (UTC)

What the hell kind of threat is this? Completely out of bounds. James J. Lambden (talk) 03:43, 5 June 2016 (UTC)
No threat intended. Your actions at this website and your coordination of such on certain external websites has been noticed by myself and others, however. Wikipedia has certain rules in place about this, but we can discuss this at the appropriate venue if and when you find yourself subject to a special kind of scrutiny of your ongoing actions. Carry on! jps (
