A welcome from Sango123Edit

Hello, Teishin, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions; I hope you like the place and decide to stay. We're glad to have you in our community! Here are a few good links for newcomers:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Though we all make goofy mistakes, here is what Wikipedia is not. If you have any questions or concerns, don't hesitate to see the help pages or add a question to the village pump. The Community Portal can also be very useful.

Happy Wiki-ing!

Orphaned fair use image (Image:ApredicaLogo RGB sm.jpg)Edit

Thanks for uploading Image:ApredicaLogo RGB sm.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable under fair use (see our fair use policy).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any fair use images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you.

Please assume good faithEdit

  Please remember to assume good faith when dealing with other editors. Thank you. --Jobrot (talk) 05:12, 26 April 2018 (UTC)

Please do not give undue weight to unreliable sourcesEdit

  Please do not insert fringe or undue weight content into articles. An article should not give undue weight to any aspects of the subject but should strive to treat each aspect with a weight appropriate to its significance to the subject. Please use the article's talk page to discuss the material and its appropriate weight within the article. Thank you. --Jobrot (talk) 05:12, 26 April 2018 (UTC)

When editing talk pages, discuss SPECIFIC changes you wantEdit

  Please refrain from using talk pages for general discussion of the topic or other unrelated topics. They are for discussion related to improving the article in specific ways, based on reliable sources and the project policies and guidelines; they are not for use as a forum or chat room. If you have specific questions about certain topics, consider visiting our reference desk and asking them there instead of on article talk pages. See here for more information.

A page you started (Phantasiai) has been reviewed!Edit

Thanks for creating Phantasiai.

I have just reviewed the page, as a part of our page curation process and note that:

The article should rely more on academic sources discussing the uses of phantasiai, rather than the primary sources where they are used. The existing citations should also be edited to be more accessible to people unfamiliar with Greek epistemology

To reply, leave a comment here and prepend it with {{Re|Rosguill}}. And, don't forget to sign your reply with ~~~~ .

Message delivered via the Page Curation tool, on behalf of the reviewer.

signed, Rosguill talk 23:16, 6 February 2019 (UTC)

@Rosguill:, yes, that page could use some work. I noticed Phantasiai mentioned in some wiki pages, even a place where there was a non-functioning link, but no page for it, which seemed problematic given the existence of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phantasia . I moved this content from some other page where the term was mentioned. The term is important in several of the Hellenistic philosophies. At the moment I'm tied up with some other matters and don't have time to do the kind of search for academic sources that would seem to meet your criteria. I'm mostly just familiar with the primary sources. Teishin (talk) 00:10, 7 February 2019 (UTC)

misspelling and pyrrhoniansEdit

a)I 've misspelled your name here [1], you prob didn't receive a notification. b)I was reading Anarchism and Authority, A Philosophical Introduction to Classical Anarchism[2] (also available at the net) the day before yesterday and I jumped into an extensive discussion of pyrrhonian scepticism.

Copying within Wikipedia requires attributionEdit

  Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you copied or moved text from one or more pages into Dissent. 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. The attribution has been provided for this situation, but if you have copied material between pages before, even if it was a long time ago, please provide attribution for that duplication. 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) 16:57, 10 April 2020 (UTC)

Shakya is covered by discretionary sanctions under WP:ARBIPAEdit

 This is a standard message to notify contributors about an administrative ruling in effect. It does not imply that there are any issues with your contributions to date.

You have shown interest in India, Pakistan, and Afghanistan. Due to past disruption in this topic area, a more stringent set of rules called discretionary sanctions is in effect. Any administrator may impose sanctions on editors who do not strictly follow Wikipedia's policies, or the page-specific restrictions, when making edits related to the topic.

For additional information, please see the guidance on discretionary sanctions and the Arbitration Committee's decision here. If you have any questions, or any doubts regarding what edits are appropriate, you are welcome to discuss them with me or any other editor.

Beware of continuing the edit war reported at WP:AN3. The steps of WP:DR are open to you. Thank you, EdJohnston (talk) 17:14, 11 April 2020 (UTC)

Sumeru Press moved to draftspaceEdit

An article you recently created, Sumeru Press, does not have enough sources and citations as written to remain published. It needs more citations from reliable, independent sources. (?) Information that can't be referenced should be removed (verifiability is of central importance on Wikipedia). I've moved your draft to draftspace (with a prefix of "Draft:" before the article title) where you can incubate the article with minimal disruption. When you feel the article meets Wikipedia's general notability guideline and thus is ready for mainspace, please follow the prompts on the Articles for Creation template atop the page. ... discospinster talk 02:40, 21 April 2020 (UTC)

Thank youEdit

I've been inappropriately conflating the terms "belief", "certainty" and "knowledge". I've always thought that knowledge must per definition be objectively true, so that "true knowledge" emphasises certainty. But certainty and knowledge aren't the same thing. Belief is what we accept as knowledge, and certainty attaches to beliefs. The question is whether we can ever be certain that our conceptions of our knowledge are accurate.

Secular buddhism institutionalized sects and schoolsEdit

Do not remove sections added about new schools and sects of secular Buddhism with links and citations. Secular buddhism is beginning to have I institutionalized sects and schools of it's own related to but entirely separate from Theravada and mahayana. If you continue to remove valid additions to secular Buddhism, I will take aggressive action with wikipedia to have secular Buddhism locked from your invalid, authoritarian, fascist edits and deletions. Final warning. You do not own this entry. Sarahjones49 (talk) 23:35, 4 June 2020 (UTC)

Hi Teishen - The entry below was on the site for a couple of months, I'm not sure if you deleted it or not. I would be amenable to it appearing in a separate section. If there are other issues may we please discuss? River-kind (talk) 05:24, 7 June 2020 (UTC)

start: There is also a variation of Secular Buddhism underway since 2012 that seeks to free the Lotus/Nichiren tradition from the trappings of supernaturalism, dogma and, as Stephen Batchelor notes in After Buddhism, the “unselfconscious rhetoric about its awakened teachers, pure lineages, and meditations.”[1] See "A Comprehensible Ultimate for a Common Good" end.

Please read the article before commenting. If you would comment before 3/24/20, so that I may address your concerns before posting, it would be appreciated.

(River-kind (talk) 16:55, 24 February 2020 (UTC))

Perhaps it would be useful to have a section on different manifestations of Secular Buddhism by Buddhist tradition.Teishin (talk) 15:04, 24 March 2020 (UTC)

User:River-kind That article got flooded with a large amount of uncited claims in this section. As I mentioned before, content about different manifestations of Secular Buddhism would be a good addition to the article. The issue now is that we just have to find proper sources to support what is put in there. We cannot use self-published information, and we can't let such information work as advertising. Teishin (talk) 12:03, 7 June 2020 (UTC)

DogmaEdit

Hi Teishin. I have a real problem with your definition of the term "dogma" - I can't find any reliable source that uses it to mean anything other than an official statement of a religious belief. I can see why you'd like to include the fundamental beliefs of various philosophical systems, but it just doesn't fit, or not so far as I can tell.Achar Sva (talk) 22:31, 1 October 2020 (UTC)

Copying within Wikipedia requires attribution (2nd request)Edit

  Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you copied or moved text from Cyrenaics into Western philosophy. 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.

Stop edit warringEdit

Stop reverting edits without explanation on Western philosophy and Hellenistic philosophy or the admins will get involved. Keepcalmandchill (talk) 00:58, 13 November 2020 (UTC)

Explanations were given. Threads were opened on the Talk pages. Please, go ahead and invite admins in. You are the one who started the edit war. My edits moved the articles closer to the status quo ante -- the state before your erroneous additions. Teishin (talk) 01:08, 13 November 2020 (UTC)

Keepcalmandchill thank you for withdrawing your claim on the noticeboard. Teishin (talk) 16:06, 13 November 2020 (UTC)

Edit warring warningEdit

Your recent editing history at Hellenistic philosophy 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.

Hello Teishin. You've been warned for long term edit warring as a result of the complaint at the edit warring board. The next time you or the other party make a change to Hellenistic philosophy you are risking a block unless you have received a prior consensus for your change on the article talk page. Let me know if you have any questions. Thank you, EdJohnston (talk) 19:49, 21 November 2020 (UTC)

  There is currently a discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents regarding an issue with which you may have been involved. Thank you. Keepcalmandchill (talk) 08:48, 22 November 2020 (UTC)

Hello Teishin. I've proposed that User:SebastianHelm should go ahead with his plan for resolving the disagreement between you and Keepcalmandchill about Hellenistic philosophy. See my update here. I won't take any action myself unless the edit war at Hellenistic philosophy restarts. Thank you, EdJohnston (talk) 17:13, 24 November 2020 (UTC)
