How to ping other editors?

Hi, I asked a question here. How do I ping other editors to reply?-Raman (talk) 17:46, 26 November 2020 (UTC)

Hey Raman, you just did. If you want to ping an editor directly (so that they get a notification) you have to leave a comment on their talk page, as you just left on mine. As for talk pages for specific articles, editing these will not send a notification to any editor unless those editors are "watching" the page (the little selectable star icon in the top right of the screen). Since activity on the wiki is a bit slow right now, there may not be so many other editors to interact with, but do feel free to msg admins/anyone you see is active via the Special:RecentChanges page. I will go ahead and leave a reply to your question on the rape in islamic law page now. Also, if you haven't already, be sure to review the talk page guidelines Hope that helps. --IbnPinker (talk) 21:11, 26 November 2020 (UTC)
Actually, I just looked into it a bit further. MediaWiki (the wiki software) may notify editors if you link to their page as such: User:Raman. Try tagging me on the rape in Islamic law page, and let me know if this tag here resulted in your receiving a notification. Thanks --IbnPinker (talk) 21:25, 26 November 2020 (UTC)
No, I did not get any notification.-Raman (talk) 01:38, 27 November 2020 (UTC)
Alright, in that case you can only cause someone to receive a notification by posting on their talk page. I will look in to getting a feature added to the site that will result in users being notified any time they are "tagged" (their page linked-to, that is). Let me know if you need anything else.--IbnPinker (talk) 02:32, 27 November 2020 (UTC)
I have made some edits to the Rape in Islamic Law, Kafir (Infidel) and Zina articles, please check if they are acceptable. Thanks —Raman (talk) 14:15, 27 November 2020 (UTC)

Hi, I saw your comment about a citation needed template. I made a simple one upon request a while back. It just adds the superscript tag, but if necessary it could at some point be enhanced with things like a link to the template / the relevant policy page, adding the page to a category like, adding an auto date and comment feature for the tooltip like on the wikipedia version. Alternatively, maybe the wikipedia one and its dependancies can be imported somehow.Lightyears (talk) 19:56, 27 November 2020 (UTC)

Wonderful, thank you. I will contact exmoose and see if those features can be added. --IbnPinker (talk) 20:57, 27 November 2020 (UTC)
I have copied some matter from the Wikipedia article on Zina to the WikiIslam article on Zina, please check if it is acceptable. Thanks.—Raman (talk) 21:13, 27 November 2020 (UTC)
I will take a look Raman. For future reference, start a new "thread" on a talk page if introducing a new topic (your comment is not related to the discussion with Lightyears above). Also, all your edits appear on the Recent Edits Page (you don't have to notify anybody to get your edits approved - all the editors can see them on this page and they will be reviewed by an editor as time permits).--IbnPinker (talk) 21:21, 27 November 2020 (UTC)


Hi, IbnPinker. Lightyears reverted my edits and wrote a note here.

He should have edited it to make it conform to the rules here but he reverted it instead. I feel someone more experienced should look at those sentences and edit them to be acceptable here on WikiIslam. Please check the sentences that he removed and add them back to both the articles he has mentioned. Thanks!-Raman (talk) 10:45, 2 December 2020 (UTC)


The wikiquote article on Kafir has many quotations from the Qur'an. Please copy the verses from the Qur'an and add it to our article also.-Raman (talk) 08:47, 8 January 2021 (UTC)

This is a good idea. It may make more sense to post about it on the talk page for Kafir and/or to add it as a suggestion on tasks page in the "fleshing out" section. Check out this FAQ as a general rule of thumb, by the way. IbnPinker (talk) 18:22, 8 January 2021 (UTC)
