New IP but same edits

Hello Kuru. Earlier today you blocked (talk · contribs) for their edit warring on Decolonization of the Americas (edit | talk | history | links | watch | logs). I wanted to let you know that a new IP (talk · contribs) has shown up to make the same edit. I have already filed a RFPP but I wanted to let you know about this block evasion. Thanks for your time and enjoy your Sunday. MarnetteD|Talk 02:22, 9 July 2017 (UTC)

Apologies, I was offline for the evening. It looks like the page has been semi-protected for now. I've also added it to my watchlist for when the protection expires. Kuru (talk) 13:04, 9 July 2017 (UTC)
No worries. Everybody needs time away from their computer/tablet/phone :-) Thanks for adding the article to your watchlist. Cheers. MarnetteD|Talk 15:27, 9 July 2017 (UTC)

WP:AN/B courtesy notice

Hey, Kuru! I hope all is well with you. Just FYI, I mentioned your name in a post (Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard#Review my block of Srwikieditor (talk · contribs)) regarding a block I made. You gave the editor their final warning over 2 years ago and they just showed back up with their continued spamming. Nothing too exciting! Thanks, --auburnpilot talk 22:31, 10 July 2017 (UTC)

I remember him. I don't want to out him, but when I looked into it there was a significant COI with that main link, and the rest of the other links were just spam for an SEO business on the side. No problems with the block. Kuru (talk) 11:18, 11 July 2017 (UTC)

About a recent article

Hello sir, I am an Engineering student living in Bangalore.I recently came across the article of Janarthanan Kesavan written by you.I was wondering if You could send me his contact number.Immediate response would be appreciated.Thanking you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:44, 20 July 2017 (UTC)

I am not the author of that article, nor do I have any information about him. The article's history is here. Kuru (talk) 11:48, 20 July 2017 (UTC)

Just to let you know

The edit made by BlueFanGirl that you reverted at List of fictional horses easily shows that she's the same single-purpose sockpuppeteering vandal whose incessant vandalisms of the page lead to its being page-protected.--Mr Fink (talk) 05:10, 2 August 2017 (UTC)

Ah, I remember now. Thanks for the reminder! Kuru (talk) 18:19, 2 August 2017 (UTC)

Pepe sock

I'm sure there's a sock here - both the names beginning with Pepe and attacking Morty, but I don't remember where I saw it. Do you? Ping me please if you do. Thanks. Doug Weller talk 13:19, 7 August 2017 (UTC)

Never mind, see Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/D.H.110/Archive. Doug Weller talk 13:45, 7 August 2017 (UTC)
Ah, was not aware. That's a lovely person. Kuru (talk) 14:15, 7 August 2017 (UTC)

Regarding external link

Hey Kuru,

I had added an external for the online reputation management. Strange to know that you have removed that, please review it again I think it is totally relevant to that page. External link has all the useful information about reputation management.

Kindly reconsider the same. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sudhir.vipra (talkcontribs) 06:06, 10 August 2017 (UTC)

It's a poorly written pitch page for a specific firm that I presume you have conflict of interest with. Please do not add it again, and read WP:PAID. Kuru (talk) 10:56, 10 August 2017 (UTC)


Hello Kuru,

I recently updated the draft article Draft:Cleeng with info and sources. I'd like to move the article to the main space. Zaynha (talk) 01:49, 11 August 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for dealing with disruptions on World in Conflict

Hey, thanks for handling that. That IP User really was being quite disruptive there. It's unfortunate that the one who reported him was an admin and had to drop out because he was too involved in the matter. Could you do me a favour and put the article in semi-protection as well? I have this nagging feeling he may try to continue reverting it when he's unblocked. Don't know if it might happen, but could you still do so, please? :-) GUtt01 (talk) 22:04, 13 August 2017 (UTC)

I really hate to do that after placing an edit warring block; I don't want to pick sides in a content dispute and semi-protection would do just that. If it becomes a pattern, or if you think this is a logged-out editor from one of the previous disputes, I'm happy to do so. Kuru (talk) 22:17, 13 August 2017 (UTC)
As info, I blocked a second IP from the user shortly after your block. I have not seen anything further though. Either way I agree that semi-prot is not necessary at this time. -- ferret (talk) 16:29, 14 August 2017 (UTC)


Hi, you recently blocked Animech.79 for 1 day. This does not appear to have gotten the message across as they're persisting with the same behaviour. Please take a look when you get the chance.—Cpt.a.haddock (talk) (please ping when replying) 06:00, 24 August 2017 (UTC)

user Sonal Maheshwari

I noticed Sonal Maheshwari (talk · contribs) has been adding unsourced and poorly sourced information, often with a promotional slant. I see you redacted some edits [1], but didn't leave the editor a notice of any kind. Minimally, could you identify what source was used, as I suspect there's spamming going on between Sonal Maheshwari and a related account, Shravani chakraborty (talk · contribs). --Ronz (talk) 15:11, 25 August 2017 (UTC)

The editor added material lifted directly from "". It's not really clear why I did not leave him a warning; I may have gone down a rabbit hole and then forgot to circle back. I can see he's been editing since then - will poke around some. Kuru (talk) 15:24, 25 August 2017 (UTC)
@Ronz:, as you probably suspected, the material added by Shravani chakraborty‎ (talk · contribs) was the same material and source as the previous edit from Sonal Maheshwari (talk · contribs) on Apache Spark. I've redacted those edits as well. I know that makes it harder for you to research the links; sorry. Let me know if I can look at anything for you. Will look at the rest of the edits in a sec. Kuru (talk) 15:37, 25 August 2017 (UTC)
Thanks. Not a problem. It looks more like students spamming sources then outright promotion. --Ronz (talk) 16:21, 25 August 2017 (UTC)
Well, it looked more like students until I ran across Chittora (talk · contribs). --Ronz (talk) 16:30, 25 August 2017 (UTC)

I am a contributor who edits the wikipedia pages for adding more information. Whatever sources I add are certainly credible and pass the important knowledge about the subject. I dont have any connection with any other profile. I read the complete article and then only add it as a citation. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sonal Maheshwari (talkcontribs) 07:27, 28 August 2017 (UTC)

Whatever sources I add are certainly credible I wouldn't call "credible". Please be more careful with what sources you use, so you don't appear to be a spammer. --Ronz (talk) 21:25, 28 August 2017 (UTC)

Information icon Thanks for contributing to the article Shafi Inamdar. However, one of Wikipedia's core policies is that material must be verifiable and attributed to reliable sources. You have recently used citations which copied, or mirrored, material from Wikipedia. This leads to a circular reference and is not acceptable. Most mirrors are clearly labeled as such, but some are in violation of our license and do not provide the correct attribution. Please help by adding alternate sources to the article you edited! If you need any help or clarification, you can look at Help:Contents/Editing Wikipedia or ask at Wikipedia:New contributors' help page, or just ask me. Thank you. Kuru (talk) 03:09, 27 August 2017 (UTC)

Agree there, didn't note that it was mirroring the Wikipedia content. It's difficult to find content on Internet on a celebrity who was house hold name once due to his TV character (I can vouch for that because I was a kid myself then and know this first hand from the earlier days of TV in India), but has deceased since 12-15 years. Debashish (talk) 14:28, 27 August 2017 (UTC)

sir , it is difficult to understand what you are trying to say — Preceding unsigned comment added by Chetnnya (talkcontribs) 12:09, 29 August 2017 (UTC)
