Note[edit]

Information.svg Please do not add commentary or your own personal analysis to Wikipedia articles, as you did to Xavier Institute of Management, Bhubaneswar. Doing so violates Wikipedia's neutral point of view policy and breaches the formal tone expected in an encyclopedia. Thank you. - Max - You were saying? 06:29, 1 July 2008 (UTC)

User:Kamal misra, thank you for your detailed message. Find my replies below.
  • You seem to be offended by the title "Warning", so I have changed it to something that is hopefully more palatable to your sensitive tastes. However, just FYI, these standard templates are called "user warnings" on Wikipedia, so there is nothing "war cry"ish about them.
  • I am not putting a "watch on a single entry to purposefully denigrate it's existence". I have cleaned up literally dozens of so-called "articles" about schools, colleges and universities that were nothing but a copy of their marketing brochures in disguise. Rest assured that I have no prejudice against this particular institute, it came under my scanner during my regular rounds on Wikipedia.
  • With regard to PoV issues in Wikipedia articles, of course they exist. But that doesn't make them right, does it? And we should certainly not be considering them them as precendents that need to be followed. No one is saying that the Stanford University article is perfect, and the leading paragraph may suffer from some PoV, but I can point out the equally well-known Harvard University page, where the leading paragraph is phrased much better. You need to ask yourself whether you're being faithful to Wikipedia's editing principles if you cherry-pick articles with potential problems, and use them to defend problems in other articles.
  • A point to note is that words like "best", "biggest", "premier" are called peacock words. If such words are used by multiple, third-party, reliable sources, you should attribute them to the sources they came from, instead of synthesizing them from one's own conclusions.
  • And finally, contrary to what you think, Wikipedia is a free encyclopedia, not a "symbol of free expression". Kindly go through "What Wikipedia is not" for details. I don't know what you mean by "pseudo-control" and what it has to do with the "objective of this platform". The objective is to create a user-edited encyclopedia, and creating an encyclopedia requires following the 5 pillars of Wikipedia. It's that simple.
For your own benefit, please go through the links provided. They will, hopefully, clarify your doubts. Have a nice day. - Max - You were saying? 17:11, 1 July 2008 (UTC)

Reply #2[edit]

User:Kamal misra, I have added the line about "biggest event" with attribution to The Financial Express to the Xpressions article.
However, I see significant issues with the tone used in the article's main body. I'm sorry to say this but it looks like the article has been written in a personal tone and reads somewhat like an essay for a school magazine than an encylopedia entry. I am noting some of the problems below (my comments are in red):
  • CeleblitZ is a much awaited event in Orissa - sources?
  • Decibelz is a celebration of the spirit of hard rock that abides in the young hearts of all B-school grads. It is a beacon for all upcoming rock bands, and is a forum where soulful music meets rebellion of the mind and hence nothing but genius flows. It defies all the logic that says that amateur bands cannot give a level of entertainment that can match those given by professionals. - requires trimming and rewording to be neutral and encyclopedic.
  • This is one of the most sought after events in the form of a mind-boggling fashion show, where participants walk the ramp amidst lots of colours, special effects and cheers. - requires rewording to be neutral and encyclopedic.
  • Elevating music, disco lights and low alcohol punches keep the participants captivated to the floor. Parties begin post midnight and run into the wee hours of morning, with the crowd just asking for more. Swing in to the rhythm or swing out to a beer, people let their hair down. - requires removal since the information is non-encyclopedic, and the tone is non-neutral.
  • An invitation to the alumnus to take a trip down the memory lane to those golden years that lost somewhere in the hustle bustle of everyday life. It is an opportunity for the alumnus to relive those magical moments on campus – to relive those long nights spent chatting outside the night mess, to meet those buddies who shared those days of fun and those nights of work, to relive those 'eventful' midnight birthday parties, to relive the JLTs and the block parties, and to sing the block anthem one more time to bring all those old memories rushing back. - same reason as above.
  • Apart from the sumptuous appetizers, there are ideas aplenty to satiate everyone….except the curious students - same reason as above.
  • Students invariably have found the interaction with Corporate honchos an enriching experience, because talking to experienced people who have a current perspective about the Industry provides them with invaluable inputs which mere books can never give! - requires removal since this is personal speculation.
In addition there are several other places that could do with a revamp. Since you are the article creator, I wanted to run this by you first. If you find that the observations are accurate and in keeping with Wikipedia's editorial policies (which you have read), please clean up the article. You can always get back to me in case you have any misgivings or doubts with what I have presented. - Max - You were saying? 14:43, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

Reply #3[edit]

Hello Kamal misra, the article looks much better now. Thanks a lot for your co-operation and efforts. I hope that any misunderstandings we may have had previously are cleared now. Looking forward to more positive contributions from you, Max - You were saying? 15:00, 4 July 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Xpressions[edit]

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles. If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

A tag has been placed on Xpressions requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article, which appears to be about a real person, individual animal(s), an organization (band, club, company, etc.), or web content, does not indicate how or why the subject of the article is important or significant: that is, why an article about it should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you can assert the importance of the subject, Speedy delete contest button.png. Clicking that button will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the article's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself. You may freely add information to the article that would confirm the subject's notability under Wikipedia guidelines.

See the guidelines for specific types of articles: biographies, websites, bands, or companies. |\\~//| 06:19, 25 November 2011 (UTC)

Xavier Institute of Management, Bhubaneswar[edit]

Hi Kamal, thanks for adding references to Xavier Institute of Management, Bhubaneswar. I've removed the self-reference, which isn't needed anyway, but the Calcutta Telegraph is useful. (The text of the Telegraph article frankly seems completely promotional, too, but at least it is a third-party source.) Anyway, the {{clarify}} template I'd put at the word "social contract" wasn't actually to ask for sources but for clarification of the strange use of the word Social contract. It's a concept in political philosophy, which doesn't normally refer to actual contracts at all. I see the Telegraph uses the term social contract, but you'll note that they put it in quote marks. That shows the journalist is aware it's used metaphorically or in an unusual sense. So, to clarify the usage, I've put the term in quote marks in our article too. With your link to the Telegraph, where the reader can look up where the phrase comes from, our use of it then becomes clear, I think. Thanks for helping, and happy editing!

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
