RAJIVVASUDEV, I spent a good amount of time trying to clean up the article and add sources. I also spent a decent amount of time debating with myself over whether to accept the submission or decline it. In the end, I decided the encyclopedia could be improved if I chose to accept, but I also decided to add a {{refimprove}} maintenance tag to the new article. Currently it has a lot of unsourced content, which is highly undesirable because as an encyclopedia our content should be verifiable. As a result, I strongly encourage you to continue to improve the article by adding sources—not general sources that just mention the subject, but sources which go in and actually verify or show to readers that the content you wrote in the article is true. I also wanted to let you know that I moved a bunch of sources you added to the article's talk page, because I wasn't sure where they belonged. If you need help, feel free to contact me on my talk page or ask a question at the Teahouse. Best of luck, Mz7 (talk) 21:00, 22 August 2015 (UTC)

License tagging for File:Close-knit conductor.jpegEdit

Thanks for uploading File:Close-knit conductor.jpeg. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information.

To add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia. For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions.

Comment on Talk:TextileEdit

Hi Rajiv Vasudev, I saw that you placed a comment at the top of talk:Textile. Did you perhaps mean for this comment to be placed at the bottom under the merge discussion? If so, please move it down so that everyone can see it. Currently it is in a section that was added over 10 years ago. Leschnei (talk) 13:00, 8 August 2018 (UTC)

A belated welcome!Edit

The welcome may be belated, but the cookies are still warm! Face-smile.svg

Here's wishing you a belated welcome to Wikipedia, RAJIVVASUDEV. I see that you've already been around a while and wanted to thank you for your contributions. Though you seem to have been successful in finding your way around, you may benefit from following some of the links below, which help editors get the most out of Wikipedia:

Also, when you post on talk pages you should sign your name using four tildes (~~~~); that should automatically produce your username and the date after your post.

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! If you have any questions, feel free to leave me a message on my talk page, consult Wikipedia:Questions, or place {{helpme}} on your talk page and ask your question there.

Again, welcome! Leschnei (talk) 13:36, 8 August 2018 (UTC)

DyeingEdit

Rajiv Vasudev, I can see that you are enthusiastic about editing Wikipedia which is terrific, however, I think that you need to pause and spend a little time learning about how to edit properly. Here are some specific steps for you to take. And please don't be discouraged, this is a learning curve that every editor goes through.

  1. Please read the links above to learn general editing.
  2. When you add a comment to any talk page, put it at the bottom of the page. If you keep putting comments at the top, no one will see them!
  3. Don't change things like hatnotes without learning about their use first. The inclusion of Dying in the hatnote for Dyeing is to help guide readers who have landed on the wrong page. And proper formatting is important so that you don't 'break' the hatnote.
  4. Wikilinks should go in brackets [[]] not <ref> markers, so [[Color fastness]] not ref>https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colour_fastness</ref> .
  5. English grammar is important, including proper punctuation and word use. Perhaps starting your edits in a word processor would be helpful.

I have reverted your edits to Dyeing and put some of your text back in with proper formatting. Please ask if you have further questions. Leschnei (talk) 13:36, 8 August 2018 (UTC)

I think that the 'cleanup' tag refers to the entire article and not just the lead paragraphs. Leschnei (talk) 13:48, 8 August 2018 (UTC)
I moved 'Selection of dyes' under 'Methods'. I think that it fits in better there. Leschnei (talk) 14:02, 8 August 2018 (UTC)

Your recent article submission to Articles for Creation has been reviewed! Unfortunately, it has not been accepted because it included copyrighted content, which is not permitted on Wikipedia. You are welcome to write an article on the subject, but please do not use copyrighted work. Dan arndt (talk) 06:29, 9 August 2018 (UTC)

Declined submission of Innovations in TextilesEdit

I appreciate the observations and declined decision but curious to know about the possibility of continuing for chasing the same or I should concentrate on something else. In my opinion it will be useful for Textile community and fashion industry to cope up with the latest innovations and wikipedia should not be behind by others for the sake of the information,it becomes more important for the wiki project of wiki fashion. Lots of innovations in textiles are happening and accessibility is not sufficient.Through wikipedia we can make the things more visible to large user base.

Kindly advise Regards rajivvasudev@outlook.com RAJIVVASUDEV Rajiv Sharma (talk) 12:29, 9 August 2018 (UTC)

Performance fabricsEdit

I'm a little bit worried that your latest addition (the table) is not supported by sources, and more importantly that the subject itself is unencyclopeadic.

What is the difference between a so-called "performance Fabric" and a fabric?

I don't want you to spend lots of time and effort on this, and then have me come along and remove your hard work as unsourced or unencyclopeadic. -Roxy, the dog. barcus 14:58, 11 August 2018 (UTC)

(moved from Roxy the dog's Talk page) Hi Roxy, appreciate your observations.i have added the required references to the chart, The basic difference between Fabric and Performance fabric is performance.which is enhanced in these fabrics. Don't hesitate to ask me again ThanksRajiv Sharma (talk) 17:44, 11 August 2018 (UTC)
So exactly what performance do you mean? ... and enhanced from what state? -Roxy, the dog. barcus 19:25, 11 August 2018 (UTC)
None of the sources of that table support your claim that those fabrics are "performance fabrics." Have you got any sources related to "performance fabrics"? -Roxy, the dog. barcus 19:36, 11 August 2018 (UTC)

Request reason:

1 @Bbb23: Sir, Greetings from my side ! * Acceptance of mistake: I got a vote and support from my family. I accept the same. * Vandalism may be unnoticed/ undetected : I was helped (3 years back) in editing and creating that page by Themessengerofknowledge unintentionally and considering Wikipedia is the free encyclopedia that anyone can edit, . It should be acceptable to Wikipedia especially when editors from the world can help and correct each other Need to check it is very important to understand the case: Is there any similarity of editing in quality of editing , pages he edited except one page Performance fabrics .He is much more senior user than me and his interests are quite different. I put him in trouble also. * Wrong doing at my part: I misused my rights and disobeyed the policy and asked him to vote (knowingly) in my favour but it was to defend a well deserving page * Undertaking not to do things again: I will abide with the policies and the things will never be repeated. * Reason why I did wrong: But please do not ignore in what circumstances the other account came in picture. when validity was challenged of a page which was published and accepted three years back . I tried to improve the page with my capacity and other senior editors also helped but edits were deleted more promptly and instantly. I realised that i am bullied, i was discouraged and distracted and lost my focus especially when the page was nominated for deletion. * Improvement and contributions: This was my first and last mistake otherwise i always contributed positively and tried to improve the articles. I will ask permission to assist any senior editor and will contribute more productively.I can contribute in hindi and Punjabi I accept my mistake and seek apology. I respect the Wikipedia community and believe in justice. Kindly review the decision. Thanks Rajiv Sharma (talk) 10:58, 31 August 2018-->

Request reason:

Reason Request 2 Dear concerned Admins, Greetings from my side! First of all, I appreciate the concern of the Admin and accept it, requesting for a review considering my below mentioned concerns in light of not blaming anyone. I am acknowledging the block with moral responsibility and pursuing here truthfully, transparently to you with few facts and circumstances (And reality of wrongly demonstrated evidences to hold me back and violation of WP:NOTBATTLE resulting a start class article is redirected to An unassessed article ) , I believe no one is bigger than the truth and policy and justice. I know two wrongs can not make one right. My inexperience caused me this block. #Acceptance and understanding the reason of my block : I violated a policy, got a vote and support from my family member which does not comply with WP:SOCK. I accept the same. It was not honest at my part and against the consensus. Clarifying the query by Mr. Yamla, the relationship with the other user- Sir, User:Themessengerofknowledge is my son and we live together under one roof only.The vote is used deliberately in desperation without knowing the consequences. Now on it is understood. #Vandalism may be remained unnoticed/ undetected :The other user helped me (3 years back also) in correcting my talk page, editing, submission of the draft of Performance fabrics , Simply for help considering Wikipedia is the free encyclopedia that anyone can edit. This is what the evidence 1sthere is made. In actual it was a warning (for talk page and user name editing) by the admin. Otherwise we would have been blocked at that time also. The warning was appreciated and well taken. We never abused and misused these accounts except editing and vote in Performance fabrics. Otherwise his interventions were absolutely absent in between( 7/11/2015 to 14/08/2018) History of our edits is self explanatory. #Wrong doing at my part: I misused my rights and disobeyed the policy and asked him to vote (knowingly) in my false dilemma in my favour, Yes of-course it was to defend a well deserving page, And I accept this was against the policy WP:SOCK. # Undertaking not to do things again: I will abide by the WP:PG and will never do wrong again.We will make it sure that both users will mind their own business and will not interfere in editing of each other. # Reason why I did wrong: I am not justifying but it is my duty to disclose, in what circumstances, the other account came in picture. When validity of a page was challenged for it's notability and called encyclopedic which was published and accepted three years back . I appreciated the suggestions and tried to improve the page with my capacity, sometimes cited and over cited even the things which were Wikipedia:SKYISBLUE , in desperation only. Moreover senior editors also helped but all edits were deleted more regularly and instantly. I was discouraged . then the page was nominated for deletion on 14/08/2018. I felt lost and I asked the other user to comment and vote. Although he voted to keep but his comments were like WP:TNT. The evidence 2nd diff in actual it was stated against WP:WIKILAWYER to oppose a wrong vote[1][2] which was suspected by us for WP:SOCK against the nominator when he was advocating a IP address and a user with (IP has only edited for 13 days and has already gotten 17 warnings for disruptive editng and a block) . And here I am.I am blocked, tagged with sock-puppet and lost the page too. Is it that bad to oppose and raise voice against uncivilly [3] of other senior editors even when you are right . And they are free to call anybody anything [4] [5]. I was insulted many times, what about WP:BB when one X individual is a nominator himself, lawyer (influencing others , forcing other users and can call them nonsense) and can be above/and against the judgement/consensus also[6] Is not showing violation of WP:CONDUCT. # I want to stay here because I respect the Wikipedia community, the contents and I learnt a lots of things from here. One point of view of the X person will not change my opinion towards this great community. I am embarrassed with what I did , Requesting you , there is no need to keep this block since I have understood the policy very well. Please check the other user account was inactive during this long time, there is no similarity in quality of editing , patterns , pages edited by the other user, except one page Performance fabrics since it was the very first thing when I started with Wikipedia and we worked together on this as a common project but without declaring in WP:PAQ. He is senior user than me and his interests are quite different. I used to ask help in editing from him for grammatical corrections etc. I put him in trouble also by doing this wrong thing but this would be a lesson for us and we would not do it again. # Improvement and contributions: First of all I will stop creating articles and delete the drafts and restrict my editing .Secondly I will avoid arguments and debates. This was my first and the last mistake otherwise I always contributed positively and tried to improve the articles. Going forward I will ask permission to assist any senior editor and will contribute more productively. I can contribute in (Improvement of)textile articles (have bot suggested list), Wikipedia Hindi and Punjabi. I accept my mistake and seek apology. I respect the Wikipedia community and believe in justice. Kindly review the decision. In last I assure you that I shall not keep any grudges towards any user irrespective of the judgement. The explanation was necessarily required to show the other side of the coin only. ThanksRajiv Sharma (talk) 5:14 am, September 1, 2018, Saturday (UTC−5) -->

Request reason:

Do you unblock or not in these cases, Accepting the punishment and ready to wait till then. I admitted the things but there were something else to be noticed, please do not ignore them i.e. circumstances and evidences, , kindly consider my unblock / standard offer earlier and suggest me how can I contribute during this time. Hopefully Wikipedia admins will not be biased. Please ThanksRajiv Sharma (talk) 05:06, 9 September 2018 (UTC)

Decline reason:

As you've been told above, you need to wait six months with no socking. As you have been wasting admin time on this talk page since your block, and continued to do so with this appeal after being told to wait and with no change in circumstances. I am revoking your access to this talk page. In six months, you may request an unblock with WP:UTRS. TonyBallioni (talk) 23:27, 14 September 2018 (UTC)

HelpEdit

I made a mistake and admitted it. The circumstances and my pieces of evidence are worthy, please do not ignore them completely. My aim was constructive. Nominator provoked me, and I was inexperienced to deal with things. Moreover, I am not the only victim of the nominator. Don't be biased and please reconsider this case/ request as an exception. If possible guide me how I can contribute till this block ends. Thanks,Rajiv Sharma (talk) 03:23, 13 September 2018 (UTC)

    1. understand what you have been blocked for,
    2. will not continue to cause damage or disruption, and
    3. will make useful contributions instead.

Accept reason:

Following your request and the discussion below, I have unblocked your account. Welcome back. PhilKnight (talk) 18:06, 23 August 2020 (UTC)

If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first, then use the {{unblock}} template again. If you make too many unconvincing or disruptive unblock requests, you may be prevented from editing this page until your block has expired.

  • My personal view is that whatever you may have done almost two years ago, there is no reason not to give you another chance, so I am in favour of unblocking you. However, I am not a checkuser, and adminsitrators who are not checkusers are not allowed to undo checkuser blocks without consulting a checkuser. I would normally consult the checkuser who placed the block in the first place, but he is retired. Perhaps one or both of Ponyo and TonyBallioni, who have both modified your block at one time or another, would like to comment, or any other checkuser who is willing to help. JBW (talk) 21:14, 27 July 2020 (UTC)
    • No objection from a CU standpoint to unblocking. No opinion otherwise. TonyBallioni (talk) 21:48, 27 July 2020 (UTC)
  • @JBW: In case you missed this, CU has no objection to unblocking from a technical standpoint. Do you still want to consider unblocking? only (talk) 10:56, 17 August 2020 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for August 27Edit

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. An automated process has detected that when you recently edited Finishing (textiles), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Synthetic. Such links are usually incorrect, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of unrelated topics with similar titles. (Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.)

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 06:16, 27 August 2020 (UTC)

August 2020Edit

Your recent editing history at Textile shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war; that means that you are repeatedly changing content back to how you think it should be, when you have seen that other editors disagree. To resolve the content dispute, please do not revert or change the edits of others when you are reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. The best practice at this stage is to discuss, not edit-war. See the bold, revert, discuss cycle for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Being involved in an edit war can result in you being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you do not violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

Letting you knowEdit

I removed your post from the reference desk because you copied wholesale, including my signature and timestamps making it look as if I had posted. Please dont do that, thanks. -Roxy the inedible dog . wooF 17:22, 17 September 2020 (UTC)

@Roxy the inedible dog . Hey dog, do you think whatever you do [[8]] is right and others are wrong? Do not dare to mess with me. And reply on the article talk page only, do not spread your shit here.RAJIVVASUDEV (talk) 08:01, 18 September 2020 (UTC)
The purpose of an article's talk page (accessible via the talk or discussion tab) is to provide space for editors to discuss changes to its associated article or WikiProject. Stick to the content[[9]].
  • Communicate: If in doubt, make the extra effort so that other people understand you. Being friendly is a great help. It is always a good idea to explain your views; it is less helpful for you to voice an opinion on something and not explain why you hold it. Explaining why you have a certain opinion helps to demonstrate its validity to others and reach consensus.
  • Stay on topic: Talk pages are for discussing the article, not for general conversation about the article's subject (much less other subjects). Keep discussions focused on how to improve the article. If you want to discuss the subject of an article, you can do so at Wikipedia: Reference desk instead. Comments that are plainly irrelevant are subject to archival or removal.
  • Stay objective: Talk pages are not a place for editors to argue their personal point of view about a controversial issue. They are a place to discuss how the points of view of reliable sources should be included in the article so that the end result is neutral. The best way to present a case is to find properly referenced material.
  • Deal with facts: The talk page is the ideal place for issues relating to verification, such as asking for help finding sources, discussing conflicts or inconsistencies among sources, and examining the reliability of references. Asking for a verifiable reference supporting a statement is often better than arguing against it.

You understand deleting only and projecting them as vandalism, and you are proud of the same. You are not sparing the Reference desk in your pursuit. Why are you not discussing the article on its talk page?


I am still waiting for you on the article talk page. Understand that newcomers are also necessary and valuable to the community.

Copying within Wikipedia requires attributionEdit

  Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you copied or moved text from Cotton into Kasturi cotton. While you are welcome to re-use Wikipedia's content, here or elsewhere, Wikipedia's licensing does require that you provide attribution to the original contributor(s). When copying within Wikipedia, this is supplied at minimum in an edit summary at the page into which you've copied content, disclosing the copying and linking to the copied page, e.g., copied content from [[page name]]; see that page's history for attribution. It is good practice, especially if copying is extensive, to also place a properly formatted {{copied}} template on the talk pages of the source and destination. Please provide attribution for this duplication if it has not already been supplied by another editor, and if you have copied material between pages before, even if it was a long time ago, you should provide attribution for that also. You can read more about the procedure and the reasons at Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia. Thank you. If you are the sole author of the prose that was copied, attribution is not required. — Diannaa (talk) 12:48, 9 October 2020 (UTC)

Reliability of booksEdit

Hi again. I'm not aware of any automated tools to assess the reliability of a book. WP:RSP lists sources which are used frequently, and provides useful links to past discussions about them, but that can't possibly cover the countless millions of individual books that are in existence. Assessing the reliability of books against the guidelines at WP:RS is a task that requires editorial judgement, and it isn't always very easy. Sometimes a book might be published by a reputable publisher, but it receives substantial criticism by the scholarly community in the relevant discipline (or is even completely ignored by that discipline), to the extent that it is a fringe view - we treat sources like that differently to regular sources, as described by WP:FRINGE - it's sometimes (not always) worth mentioning in an article, but we make it clear that it's not a mainstream view. Sometimes a publisher will deceptively attempt to make themselves look reputable, when they are not - this is known as predatory publishing, and it can a good deal of background knowledge and investigation to identify it for what it is.

As I said, that isn't the case with the book you linked to - the publishers are quite open about what they do, and there's nothing dishonest or deceptive about it - but it is clear that it's not a useful source for our purposes.

If you come across a book, and want to know whether or not it is reliable, your best bet is to read through WP:RS and think carefully about the points it raises, with regard to your particular book. Factors that I tend to consider include:

  • Who published it? As I mention above, this isn't a situation where some publishers=good, others=bad, but it's a good starting point and worth knowing. If it's self-published, that immediately raises a red flag, so proceed with caution.
  • Who wrote it? Are they an acknowledged expert in their field - perhaps an experienced academic working at an accredited university in a relevant discipline? Or a well-known and respected journalist with a good track record in this field?
  • Has it been reviewed, and if so, where, and by whom? Were the reviews favourable?

One example that might be worth mentioning is a book on my shelf about Scottish Tower houses. It is self-published, which is a bad starting point; however, it's written by an academic in the field, and I found that it had been reviewed favourably by an archaeologist from Cambridge University, in one of the UK's leading archaeological journals. Therefore, I am confident using it as a source for articles about historic buildings; however, if it contained information which conflicted with information in a different source, which was published by Oxford University Press and was also by an academic, I would either mention both separately, or if I thought that was going to be too complicated, I would go with the one that isn't self-published, on the basis that it will probably have been reviewed thoroughly prior to publication, and so doesn't just represent one academic's view.

As WP:RS notes, reliability isn't a binary, it's a spectrum. A source could be reliable for one assertion, and unreliable for another, and one source could be more reliable than another - it's all about judgement, you can't automate that (well, not yet...). If this isn't the answer you were hoping for, I hope it's been helpful anyway. Best GirthSummit (blether) 11:48, 24 October 2020 (UTC)
