Hi,

Nice picture of Mahatma Gandhi :)

It would be nice if you make it clear on the image page for the image(s) you upload that you are releasing it under the GFDL. It is not clear if you are actually doing so, since your website only says it is free for noncommercial use.

It would also be a good idea, purely for the record, to make a page on your website stating that the English wikipedia account Gandhiserve is indeed affiliated with the Gandhiserve foundation, and link to it from here.

Great photos at the site you have mentioned. I went through the entire photo archive. In fact I was planning to mail and ask if permission can be obtained for the 1906 Johannesberg pic. Its good that a socially responsible organization had joined Wikipedia as a registered member. Jay 18:33, 4 Mar 2004 (UTC)


Are the IP addresses 217.230.179.232 and 217.88.114.218 associated with this user account ? User with the former address added the gandhiserve.org link in about 30 articles. The edits have all been reverted as the link is not relevant for those articles, whereas it is relevant in the Mahatma Gandhi article.

Also the Gandhi image in Mahatma Gandhi says "Mohandas Gandhi, 1945 --- Copyright: Vithalbhai Jhaveri/GandhiServe, www.gandhiserve.org". This is not consistent with GFDL which gives the reader permissions to copy, edit or re-upload the images on other websites. It'll be good if the image is released under GFDL.

Nuvola apps important.svg Please stop. If you continue to ignore our policies by introducing inappropriate pages, such as GandhiServe Foundation - Mahatma Gandhi Research and Media Service, to Wikipedia, you will be blocked. Andante1980 11:59, 22 May 2007 (UTC)

Nuvola apps important.svg Please stop adding inappropriate external links to Wikipedia, as you did to Mahatma Gandhi. It is considered spamming and Wikipedia is not a vehicle for advertising or promotion. Since Wikipedia uses nofollow tags, additions of links to Wikipedia will not alter search engine rankings. If you continue spamming, you will be blocked from editing Wikipedia. Matteo (talk @) 12:04, 22 May 2007 (UTC)

Gandhiserve[edit]

Please read: WP:COI and WP:SPAM. Additionally you have created multiple copies of the same article under different names, which is clearly an attempt at SEO. I have requested that an administrator take a look at this user and the pages created. Please do not create anymore articles with the same text. Andante1980 12:48, 22 May 2007 (UTC)

1 week block[edit]

I have blocked you for 1 week due to creation of multiple copies of a blatant corporate spam article, disregarding warnings, and your obvious conflict of interest when considering your username. I encourage you to return to editing after your block expires, but please try not to edit/create any articles about subjects which you have a strong interest in or have a strong bias for/against. If you wish to contest this block, you may do so by posting {{unblock|your reason here}}. Regards, – Riana 13:25, 22 May 2007 (UTC)
