[1] Ouch, Space, I'd just written an answer to him and everything! Please see my edit summary here. If the subject is all the things mentioned in the article, he is surely notable; but it's hardly sourced at all. I can't make head or tail of the one "reference" given. What do you think? I see there are sources out there, but I'm having trouble sorting the wheat from the chaff. Bishonen | talk 12:08, 9 October 2018 (UTC).

  • He is a minister in the central government, and any newspieces I've read that include him, claim that, albeit indirectly. Eitherways, I don't care much for political bios to bother editing them, just have it on my watchlist from earlier when I reverted vandalism or related to some news piece I think. Godric might be of some help on this as he likes such topics, maybe he'll reply and/or tackle the article. cheers. —SpacemanSpiff 12:36, 9 October 2018 (UTC)

Can this be speedied?

Hey Spiff, do you think List of accolades received by Kumkum Bhagya can be speedy-deleted? It's an unattributed copy/paste from Kumkum Bhagya buy a guy who has previously been warned about copy/pasting-within-Wikipedia violations. There was no discussion to fork, and I don't know that any of those GARV awards that are bulking up the table qualify as legitimate awards. (It was on my list to pull those out.) The GARV internet presence is on My feeling is that this is a totally premature fork and I'm just curious if you think it needs to go through the AfD or Merge process rather than just being snuffed and letting him drum up the initiative to argue for the split.

  • Blocked, deleted that and a couple of others. Why wasn't he blocked earlier? —SpacemanSpiff 02:15, 13 October 2018 (UTC)
You know I've taken to being really harsh with the whole Indian promotional editing engine, where my attitude is to indef people far sooner. Not sure why I went slower with this guy. Thanks for participating here. Very helpful to me. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 05:00, 13 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Here's another one: Asian Viewers Television Awards. This one was created by GracyM, a sock of Dimpletisha. I must have been absolutely brain dead when I did this, but I nominated it for AfD when it should have been speedied under G5--that is, I don't think there are any substantive edits. There are a couple of category and template additions, and then an IPv6 editor who I know is the sock operator editing while logged out. Should I let the AfD run out or what? Thanks. Sorry to be a pain this week. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 01:00, 14 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Brain dead? Welcome to my world. - Sitush (talk) 10:25, 14 October 2018 (UTC)


Do you think Blosm may still be socking at Sengunthar? Something odd and persistent is going on. - Sitush (talk) 10:25, 14 October 2018 (UTC)

Request for help in account admin issues for user: Viksit

Hi SpacemanSpiff,

I am ([]) - at the moment, I'm locked out of my wikipedia account without any means of being able to figure out why. I'm trying to contact an admin to get some help. Could you help me out? I have a few ways to prove my account ownership as well.

Thanks! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:645:8104:F700:75CC:820:D2AE:44C7 (talk) 04:52, 18 October 2018 (UTC)

  • I don't think there's any way anyone can help you get access back to your account. Please see Help:Login for what can/can't be done. cheers. —SpacemanSpiff 04:58, 18 October 2018 (UTC)
- Ah dang. Yes, I've checked that page, as well as []. It appears that my password was somehow changed, and the email on it too. I was wondering if there was someone on abuse/security who could help? Or is that impossible as well? -- Thanks much for your quick response! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:645:8104:F700:75CC:820:D2AE:44C7 (talk) 05:08, 18 October 2018 (UTC)
I doubt there's any way anyone can help, but best place to ask would be WP:HELPDESK as it might have volunteers who are aware of such things, I have no idea at all. cheers. —SpacemanSpiff 05:11, 18 October 2018 (UTC)

Reference Article:Asaram

Hi @SpacemanSpiff

You say, It's obvious that you're here editing with an agenda, if this continues then your editing privileges will be withdrawn. —SpacemanSpiff 11:18, 18 October 2018 (UTC)

Can you please tell me when is correcting a person's name an agenda? The name used here is incorrect and I have simply corrected it and have given a valid reference source (a court document). Please clarify why my edits are incorrect. Dont try to misuse you moderator power. I need explaination why my suggestion even though with a valid legal source is termed as an agenda. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ss73619 (talkcontribs) 11:43, 18 October 2018 (UTC)

  • You've been given enough explanation on common name, that's all I have to say. Either follow our rules or don't edit here, simple as that. —SpacemanSpiff 11:50, 18 October 2018 (UTC)
Umm... Going by his latest post, it's time to put the curtains down or so do I feel:-) WBGconverse 16:06, 18 October 2018 (UTC)
