Request for Peer Review of articleEdit

I requested a peer review of this article on Western Marxism in the Philosophy portal 18 months ago. It hasn't been reviewed since. I'd like to request a review in the Socialism portal. -- Hanshans23 (talk) 21:17, 18 April 2020 (UTC)

Hanshans23, I posted a brief review at Wikipedia:WikiProject Philosophy/Peer review/Western Marxism. MarioGom (talk) 13:19, 27 April 2020 (UTC)

RE: Debate on creating a Chris Mullin disambiguation page (now it automatically leads to the basketball player)Edit

Right now, the Chris Mullin page automatically leads to the basketball player - at the same time, there is a Chris Mullin (politician) - the one who led the fight to release the Birmingham Six and vote A Very British Coup (which was adapted to a TV series).

I've started a discussion on the talk page there, requesting to rename the basketball player page to Chris Mullin (basketball), and make the Chris Mullin page a disambiguation page with equal representation to both of them.

Arguments raised against my proposal:

  • The basketball player has more views.

My main argument for the move:

  • The basketball player gets most of his views from the US, while outside the US he's hardly known, and in Britain itself the politician-author Chris Mullin is much better known.

I invite you guys to take part in the discussion.

State units of BJPEdit

Why is State units of the Bharatiya Janata Party listed as a top-importance article? The BJP doesn't seem to be particularly related to socialism. -Sophia (talk) 22:38, 1 September 2020 (UTC)

Sophia wisdom, I've removed the banner. It doesn't seem to make sense. MarioGom (talk) 10:50, 11 October 2020 (UTC)

Your help is urgently needed! ExcutientTalk 08:56, 4 November 2020 (UTC)

Excutient: The creation of that article has been discussed repeatedly at Talk:Mass killings under communist regimes. I think the general consensus is that it would be considered original research. --MarioGom (talk) 14:11, 6 November 2020 (UTC)


Religious fanatics are taking ownership at Kalaripayattu and not allowing any edits deviating from their agenda. The worst part is it is pending-changes protected and they all are confirmed accounts who can make changes without scrutiny. None of them give proper explanation for reverting, and sometimes blatantly reverts multiple edits (edited with proper edit summary) without explanation. Two of them have COI as evident from their usernames (Kalari). Their main business is promoting their POV and highlighting Hinduism part, though Kalaripayattu do have rituals based on Hinduism, the art itself is not a "Hindu art", it just happened to have originated when only Hindu "religion" was prevalent in Kerala. It is a martial art practised by all religious communities, many of the masters are Muslims, the Christians even have a folk dance derived from Kalaripayattu. Some Hindu extremists are "making statements" by projecting Hinduism on an otherwise communally harmonious martial art. BTW, I am also a Hindu, but this is too much.

The first time my edit got reverted (see history here onward), I never thought it was religious agenda, but now it's becoming clearer, as User:Kalariwarrior changed "Indian mythology" to "Hindu mythology" (source says former), and User:Kalari Poothara's recent Hinduism promotion in lead, and as Outlander07 is now trying to re-insert Hinduism claims (not in the source) in lead which I had removed; he had also removed a sourced mention about a Hindu lower-caste community – Thiyya. There are multiple legends on the creator - Parashurama, Shiva, Agasthya; they want Parashurama, not only that, they don't want to attribute it as "legend" (I agree with [1]). I suspect Outlander07 and Kalariwarrior to be the same person, all three are incompetent in editing. The article requires serious cleanup for sourcing and NPOV. Should I report this activity to WP:ANI, or somewhere else, or what? Please help. 2409:4073:103:B264:4177:62E9:8313:1743 (talk) 08:10, 3 December 2020 (UTC)
