Hello and welcome to Wikivoyage.

To help get you started contributing, we've created a tips for new contributors page, full of helpful links about policies and guidelines and style as well as some important information on copyleft and basic stuff like how to edit a page.

Also, please read what is an article and Welcome, Wikipedians. Temples rarely get their own article on this site, and in addition, your Brihadeeswarar Temple was completely copied and pasted from Wikipedia at first, with travel information for Thanjavur appended, which is not needed for a site within that city. That temple is a sight in Thanjavur, and is covered in the Thanjavur article. If you believe the "See" listing for Brihadishwara Temple in the Thanjavur article needs to be respelled or edited in any other way, please plunge forward and do so, though without simply copying large amounts of encyclopedic text from Wikipedia.

All the best,

Thank you[edit]

Thank you very much for your helpful edits to articles about Ahmedabad and Gandhinagar! Ikan Kekek (talk) 21:49, 30 November 2016 (UTC)

Copyright violation[edit]

Hello, and thank you for adding content, but please avoid copying and pasting from other sites in violation of their copyrights and Wikivoyage's copyleft policy. Whenever I see a multi-paragraph listing, I tend to be suspicious of a copypasta job, so I did a web search for the following text:

"An ancient city, a gateway to Rajasthan. A hiding place for rulers, concealed from enemies, citizens, angry wives, even from the sun, tucked between"

Can we trust you to eliminate all plagiarism as soon as possible (as in, within 24 hours at most), or is it necessary to revert all articles to their last version before your edits? The choice is up to you, and please avoid doing this in the future.

Thanks, User:Ikan Kekek for bringing my attention to copyvio. It was imported from en:w:Sabarkantha district which I did not suspected as copyvio. Removed from both places. I am Wikipedian for long time and know seriousness of copyvio. I think I have not added copyvio content from any sources excepted copied texts from Wikipedia sometimes. Still if you have doubts, please go through my edits and suggest me if any problems. Regards,--Nizil Shah (talk) 18:38, 8 May 2017 (UTC)
OK, about Wikipedia: It's permissible to copy and paste from Wikipedia, but only if you credit your source in an edit summary. Otherwise, it violates both Wikipedia's Creative Commons Copyleft and Wikivoyage's copyleft policies. As a matter of style, it's sometimes good to copy swathes of text from Wikipedia but usually better to summarize and paraphrase. Ikan Kekek (talk) 19:01, 8 May 2017 (UTC)

Red-linked districts[edit]

Hi, and thanks as always for your contributions. However, I'm reverting your insertion of "Districts" sections with red-linked district names in articles for regions in Gujarat. Why don't you instead start articles for some of the red-linked cities?

All the best,

@Ikan Kekek:, thank you for pointing it out. Then please delete Mehsana district as well. I was thinking of writing from top-down approach but you suggested bottom-up approach which is better. Will do it that way. Regards,-Nizil Shah (talk) 06:26, 6 October 2018 (UTC)
Great. Will do. And district articles could always be (re)started in the future, if the region articles become too unwieldy (e.g., lots of cities with articles in each region). Ikan Kekek (talk) 19:06, 6 October 2018 (UTC)

"Only museum of ikat work"[edit]

Hi, Nizil. What do you mean by that? The only museum where that has ikat work? Only museum in Patan? Only museum in Gujarat, perhaps? I speak Malay and know "ikat" to mean "tie(d)". Loads of museums show ikat sarongs of different kinds. Ikan Kekek (talk) 06:28, 6 January 2020 (UTC)

@Ikan Kekek: Thanks for noting. Well, I read such claim on their website. I will remove it. -Nizil Shah (talk) 06:32, 6 January 2020 (UTC)
Anything else? -Nizil Shah (talk) 06:43, 6 January 2020 (UTC)
I haven't read through the entire article yet. I noticed, though, that you changed "By plane" to "By air". We don't use "By land", "By sea", "By air", although that's a perfectly logical alternative to the style we've adopted. We use "By plane", "By train", "By bus", etc. See Wikivoyage:Article skeleton templates/Sections#Get in. Ikan Kekek (talk) 07:14, 6 January 2020 (UTC)
Thanks for pointing it out. I have noted skeleton template page for help in future. Regards,-Nizil Shah (talk) 07:27, 6 January 2020 (UTC)
Sure thing. Thanks for improving articles! Ikan Kekek (talk) 08:36, 6 January 2020 (UTC)
