Hey Dhanalakshmi KT,

This is worth discussing in WP:Village pump as Ashwin sir suggested. I believe discussions in Tulu and Kannada Wikipedia helps to resolve issue better.

Hi all,

We are all aware of Newbie biting. One editor by User name Lokesha kunchadka who is indulging in Newbie biting in Kannada and Tulu Wikipedias from almost last 2-3 months. He was issued a warning by the admin in Kannada Wikipedia, link is here.

I have been conducting Diversity Editathons from last 3 months. One of the major aims of these editathons is to bring more women editors. Before the new editor completes the article this person jumps in and adds templates to imply the article is not of good quality. The new editors, especially the women editors, are scared to continue editing because of this newbie biting. Apart from this I had written an article on 13th October 2019 with the template Under constriction for which he commented saying there is no such topic. I was planning to complete the article with reference to the title today. 

I would like to hear suggestions from experienced people on how do deal with this kind of situation.
