Please do not close RfAs as only bureaucrats are allowed to close them. We don't allow for non-crat closures. RfAs are not like requests for deletion, crats sometimes choose not to close them on time and let them run longer etc. In this case it probably wouldn't have happened but by closing it as a non-crat you can cause issues. Just something to remember for the future. -DJSasso (talk) 14:07, 4 June 2013 (UTC)

Actually I didn't know that we, general users aren't allowed to close RfA's. Anyway I saw this English Wikipedia and thought about being bold, that's why I closed the RfA. Okay in future I'll not close RfA's until I become a crat here.--Pratyya (Hello!) 10:49, 6 June 2013 (UTC)
That may be allowed at the English Wikipedia, but not here. Each Wikimedia site is independently run. --Rschen7754 01:09, 7 June 2013 (UTC)

Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday to you! Happy birthday to dear Prattya Ghosh. Happy Birthday to you!!!! --Aaqib Hola! 23:52, 10 June 2013 (UTC)

Thanks. Many many Thanks.--Pratyya (Hello!) 15:12, 11 June 2013 (UTC)

Your changes to Template:Talk archiveEdit

Please stop whatever you are doing to that template. You are not particularly experienced in the intricacies of template syntax, and your recent edits messed up the existing 400+ transclusions. I know what you are trying to do; please leave it to me and I will get it done. Chenzw  Talk  13:58, 12 June 2013 (UTC)

I beleive it is done. But thanks anyway.--Pratyya (Hello!) 14:00, 12 June 2013 (UTC)

User page fixingEdit

Hello Pratyya Ghosh, if you see the "view history" button and if you see me. I contributed to your page and I was fixing a little bit. Is that okay with you? And also, when are you available. Like 5pm to 6pm. Thank you! --Aaqib Talk!| Hola! 23:03, 13 June 2013 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) Hi Aaqib and Pratyya. Aaqib, you should probably ask this user before you change the user's page and see the answer. Or you could just ask the user on this talkpage to make a little change to the userpage (e.g. == New section == Hello Pratyya Ghosh. On your userpage, can you please add a fullstop to the end of your sentence "I am an active changer"? ~~~~), instead of just changing the page. Thanks. curtaintoad | chat me! 07:11, 14 June 2013 (UTC)
Sorry, I am not a well experienced user. Thanks for the message! --Aaqib Talk!| Hola! 16:22, 14 June 2013 (UTC)
No problem here. Everyone makes this here. So you don't need to be sad or sorry. There was a typo and you fixed that kindly. I haven't seen that in these days. You should get a barnstar for this.Face-smile.svg--Pratyya (Hello!) 12:16, 15 June 2013 (UTC)
Great. Thanks. But I think you are going to give Aaqib the barnstar. ~ curtaintoad ~~ talk ~ 12:21, 15 June 2013 (UTC)
 Done. Yup. I've given.--Pratyya (Hello!) 12:23, 15 June 2013 (UTC)

Red-link listsEdit

I'm concerned about the red-link lists you brought over from English wiki. An example is List of India Test cricketers, where we see over 300 red links and only one blue link. I see two problems:

  1. All the data is fully present on English wiki, fully blue-linked. Everyone knows they can go there to find the information. Nothing is achieved by having a version which doesn't work on this wiki.
  2. The list makes us look like a bunch of idiots who don't know what we are doing. I'm sure you know there are people on WP who would like to close us down...
  3. We might change the list to "List of India Test captains", and add short biog pages of some of the better-known captains.

No. Send it again.--Pratyya (Hello!) 10:40, 26 June 2013 (UTC)

broken imagesEdit

I am in the process of finishing up the cleaning up the backlog for broken images. There are pages listed at Category:Pages with broken file links in your userspace. As you are an active user, I don't want to go around editing your userspace without permission, advanced warnings, etc so I am wondering if you could look at the pages in question and clear the errors. --Creol(talk) 16:55, 27 June 2013 (UTC)

Leaving talkback messagesEdit

Please don't leave talkback messages like you did for the bot discussion. For one thing, talkback is for replies directly to the person the tb is left for, and mostly on user talk pages. For another, people usually watch the Wikipedia-space pages they're interested in and they'll see the activity there. --Auntof6 (talk) 19:57, 5 August 2013 (UTC)

Categories in your user boxesEdit

I noticed that some (maybe all?) of the userboxes you have in your userspace add categories to the pages that use them. Would you consider taking those categories out? They aren't really needed, and the categories are showing up on pages where they don't really belong (see Category:Wikipedians who use Mozilla Firefox for examples). Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 05:47, 28 November 2013 (UTC)

@Auntof6 Thanks for that. As my exam is going on so I'm not that active in wiki. I'll become active again from 5 December. I'll try to fix them later when I get time. But forgive me now. I have a big exam tomorrow. --Pratyya (Hello!) 09:44, 28 November 2013 (UTC)
Oh. Then good luck then. Hope you score As. Jianhui67 talkcontribs 10:06, 28 November 2013 (UTC)
Thanks Jian. Face-smile.svg--Pratyya (Hello!) 10:21, 28 November 2013 (UTC)
I have  Fixed them @Auntof6. --Pratyya (Hello!) 06:04, 10 December 2013 (UTC)
Thanks! --Auntof6 (talk) 06:50, 10 December 2013 (UTC)

Requesting quick deleteEdit

When you request quick delete of an article, be sure to use one of the approved quick delete reasons. Those are the only reasons we can use for quick deletion. "Not written in a neutral style" is not an approved quick delete reason. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 06:40, 6 January 2014 (UTC)

Thanks. I didn't know it. In en wiki there's a NPOV. So I thought here you have that thing too. Anyway I'll be careful next time.--Pratyya (Hello!) 13:11, 6 January 2014 (UTC)
