Q: What to do when OP refuses to approve (correct) edit suggestions

pushpen.paulIn this question, I recommended to edit the title. Now, without going into the arguments, it can be said that the OP is refusing to be open-minded. Even though he knows his question title is improper (as can be seen from the question description), he is vehement not to amend it. What a normal u...

Q: Do any verses in the Vedas declare Agni to be supreme?

Surya Kanta Bose ChowdhuryAfter see this answer, I wish to know whether there are any verses declare Agni to be supreme (since he is frequently mentioned as Indra). Are there any such verses?

5:36 PM
> Is the above English translation of the verse?
Isn't the sentence incomplete @SuryaKantaBoseChowdhury
and why the women tag?
@NogShine Um...I am thinking of deleting it.
@SuryaKantaBoseChowdhury You can't do that because it has answer already.
@NogShine 😒@Parikshit where r u?
Actually the question was kinda stupid
But I had to verify it for a friend
According to faq and site's policy, asking for pure translation and transliteration is off-topic
@SuryaKantaBoseChowdhury I agree. You should have asked it in chat first..
@NogShine So um...if the question is a violation, shouldn't it be deleted?
5:42 PM
> If the post is asking to translate a verse, it's OFF-topic, but if a person is trying to understand the reason, meaning behind that verse, should be considered ON-topic.
@SuryaKantaBoseChowdhury it can be resolved.
Q: Should we close questions related to Sanskrit language and grammar as off-topic?

Nog ShineSome questions on the main site seem to be about Sanskrit and not directly related to Hinduism. For example: Representation of number 0-9 in Sanskrit shloka Correct gender version of Sanskrit name तेजस्वी or tejasvī But while reviewing close votes, I saw a question (How can an elder address a...

But many don't follow it for translation and transliteration.
@NogShine Ok but I had also asked for a question once just for transliteration
Oh so I am one of them
I'm not saying you..
I'm saying users don't VTC them as off-topic
Oh...well why?
There were transliteration questions in the past too. I remember one.
@SuryaKantaBoseChowdhury because they are not aware of it.
Hey you watch Bollywood?
5:48 PM
Speakig of VTC, the review hasn't been consistent these days. Closure and reopen is happening very quickly.
Sometimes without any proper improvement.
The question about Ramanua's avatar is an example.
@SuryaKantaBoseChowdhury Yes. I watch some movies
Wait what. How's Ramanuja's question off-topic?
Not yours.
@NogShine Um...pls ignore me if I am offending you, but are you fluent in Hindi?
@NogShine Then which question?
Q: Can an avatara cease to be one if there are too many imperfections?

Rakesh JoshiRāmānuja (Ramanujacharya) was one of the prominent scholar of the vishistadvaita school of philosophy. However, after seeing many important aspects of his life, I doubt if he was really an avatara. Further, Swami Sivananda in his book, Easy Steps to Yoga, says: Another great soul who was re...

@SuryaKantaBoseChowdhury Why is it offending? Yes, I can speak Hindi.
@NogShine Um...bcoz most Tamils don't know Hindi.
5:55 PM
@SuryaKantaBoseChowdhury Who said I'm Tamil? :P
@NogShine You aren't??? OMG sorry!!!
Since you were a Sri Vaishnava, I thought so
@SuryaKantaBoseChowdhury There are Sri Vaishnavas in many states.
@NogShine So from where are you from?
Andhra Pradesh?
6:02 PM
Wth? Um...Telengana?
Great profile picture !
Lol thanks!
or maybe...idk tough to guess
A quiz
6:06 PM
image identification
That is Telengana
So you are from there?
Which movies do you watch?
Yes, I live in Telangana
Lol I watch mainly Hollywood. Now days Bollywood I find lame.
6:09 PM
Have you watched Satyam Shivam Sundaram?
You should watch some regional movies with subtitles. They're Good
Bengali ones deeply suck
Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam
Not the heavy action ones.
6:11 PM
Watch some of them. They're Good.
Which genre is your favorite?
The Telugu action movies have killed me.
That's why not action ones.
So there are without action ones then. I never knew.
Without unrealistic fights.. yes.
They are much better
Recommend me some
6:13 PM
I recommend Atadu

And lol I hate violence
Are you sure this doesn't have violence? There's Mahesh Bapu.
There are fights but they don't seem violent
I hope you like it.
Lol have you watched Pokiri (sorry if the spelling is wrong)
It is correct spelling
I will watch it on Saturday and tell
6:16 PM
you should ask how many times :D
I know the dialogues too.
Lol. Who's you fav Dollywood actor?
Mahesh Babu
Lol. What's the name of that comedian?
I see him in every movie. The one who played the role of Vishnu.
But this is a good film. There are all genres mixed. Comedy, action, drama
That movie is a poor one
The movie had Ileana D'Cruz
That was so weird...
any religious movies?
6:19 PM
We changed this to The Screening room. :D
@SuryaKantaBoseChowdhury With English subtitles okay?
Lol okay
Wait...u watched Bhakta Prahlada?
Follow those parts. ^
I haven't finished the Shankara movie yet
6:22 PM
@SuryaKantaBoseChowdhury Yes, the old one or new one? I don't remember the old one correctly.
Hey that's Yadava Prakasha lol
@SuryaKantaBoseChowdhury The sanskrit one? Me neither.
@SuryaKantaBoseChowdhury My pleasure.
There are 2 Bhakta Prahlada movies?
1932 and 1967
Yeah the Sanskrit one with English subtitles
6:24 PM
b/w and colour
I have to watch 1932 I guess
Is it available online?
but I find the Hindi and Telugu version of one Bhakta Prahlada song very different.
The one where Prahlada sings Narayana bhaja to the Asura children
You're talking about Telugu movies. right?
Or am I understanding differently?
Which Bhakta Prahlada are you referring to?
The 1967 movie in Telegu and Hindi
6:29 PM
I don't think I watched 1932. It is the first Telugu film with dialogues
Telugu song is famous even now
But why are the songs so different?
I mugged up the Hindi one though
To adapt with the nativity
Well they shot twice for the same song?
6:34 PM
Oh...and I was thinking all this while they dubbed it
There were expert lyric writers, dialogue writers
They didn't do it at the same time right? The Hindi Prahlada looks older
I want to watch the 1932 one. Is it available on YouTube?
Hindi is a remake
I don't think so.
Well, they haven't twisted the plot much right?
6:37 PM
The story remains the same..
because it is a mythological story
there's can't be much of a chance
😑why "mythological"?
Why? Are you against it too?
That word is for fiction
Mythological in the sense, it is from texts and a story of belief. Know
@SuryaKantaBoseChowdhury No.
They use Norse mythology,Greek mythology
By that are they saying it is false?
They believe in their stories too.
Um...I thought my dictionary says its for false stories
6:40 PM
There are many meanings to it.
It can't be false all the time
Well in one Physics seminar, Rama was called myth
As a result, I left the hall
A set of beliefs, stories associated with a religion is also a definition.
but people don't see it
@SuryaKantaBoseChowdhury If it is said in a scientific seminar, then it means false only.
Um ok ok...but for the so called myths to me, all are non-fiction
When a believer says mythology, it will never mean false
Yeah so that means the Physics professor needs to be slaughtered
6:43 PM
I said bhakt Prahlada story a mythological story. Did I mean it false?
@SuryaKantaBoseChowdhury You said you don't like violence :P
Sometimes, its necessary. Though I am known to be nonviolent
Do you face problems with atheists?
It depends on the context where it is used and who is using too. doesn't it? On a Hinduismsite, mythology doesn't mean a false story always but people may not agree with it.
@SuryaKantaBoseChowdhury Where? IRL?
6:46 PM
In real life
No. There are no atheists near me
Here's another beautiful bhajan. ^
Lucky guy...I am stuck with atheists...
💜That bhajan made me addicted
The girl sings superbly well
I don't care about such people much. There are only few people I know.
Have you heard the rock version of Namaste Narasimhaya?
6:49 PM
but we don't speak about beliefs and God :P
Well when people say, "Stop being irrational and believing in gods", I face problems
@SuryaKantaBoseChowdhury No, I don't like rock versions and breaking up shlokas and mantras for rhythm.
@SuryaKantaBoseChowdhury That is definitely not nice. One can be rational and also believe in God.
Oh ok lol...you should try the traditional bhajans of Madhavas Rock Band then
Have you ever heard of HH Chinna Jeeyar Swami? Or seen a pic of Him?
6:51 PM
@SuryaKantaBoseChowdhury Bye for Now
Good Night
Oh ok bye. Gn...Jai Shriman Narayana!
@SuryaKantaBoseChowdhury Have you heard his speeches?
But I will in the near future
