Question[change source]

Hey. I have a question. Isn't it against Wikipedia's rules that users who show they have a specific right (which they don't have) on their user page? - I'm talking about this edit here. --SimmeD (talk) 07:45, 20 June 2019 (UTC)

@SimmeD: I don't think there's a specific rule about that. That kind of things can get out of date, and it isn't the official way of telling what rights someone has. If you want to see what rights someone actually has, you can either click the verify link in the user box or go to Special:UserRights and put in their user name.
I wouldn't worry too much about what people have on their user pages, but if you really think something on another user's page needs to be changed, you could ask the user or an admin to take care of it: editing someone else's user page is actually a bigger offense than having inaccurate user boxes. Pinging @Djsasso because he maintains the list of active and inactive admins, in case he wants to consider updating user boxes when admins lose their rights, but I don't really see this as a big deal. --Auntof6 (talk) 07:59, 20 June 2019 (UTC)
Understood. That was more because many of the Scandinavian Wikis have the rule. I also believe that English Wikipedia prohibits people from displaying rights on their userpage that they do not have. The reason why users should not display wrong rights on its user page on wikis is because new users may be confused. But all wikis have their own rules, and it doesn't sound like this rule is active here :-) - You learn something new every day. Thanks for reply --SimmeD (talk) 08:41, 20 June 2019 (UTC)
Yeah its usually not that big a deal in cases like this one where he just lost his rights through inactivity so hasn't really been around to fix his userpage. If it was someone trying to trick people into thinking they were an admin or something, that would be a bigger deal. But yeah if I think about it I will start removing userboxes when people have their flags removed. -DJSasso (talk) 10:39, 20 June 2019 (UTC)
It is vitally important to know who has Admin rights on a certain Wikimedia site. Not only for the benefit of new users but for all users. I am surprised that the Wikimedia foundation has not found a way to incorporate this info in the username itself. Until this happens there is a way to list all admins using special: Ottawahitech (talk) 16:41, 25 June 2019 (UTC)
Here is an example where Users would want to check if a user has Admin rights:
Since AFD discussions on enwiki can be closed by non-admins (only in certain circumstances) I thought I would check to see if the closer of w:Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Fram controversy is an admin. It was simple to determine - all it took was one click that took me to his Userpage, where at the bottom he shows up as belonging to w:Category:Wikipedia administrators. Would it not be nice to do this for all Admins? Thanks in advance for any responses, Ottawahitech (talk) 16:22, 11 July 2019 (UTC)
All our admins are listed at WP:ADMINS. -DJSasso (talk) 17:49, 11 July 2019 (UTC)

Naming consistency in categories[change source]

2)On the page history ,you almost are the main contributor.The last edit was on June 15.Right Before someone asked it to be deleted.Suddenly the link was blank too,what do you think ?

After I saw your profile,I believe that on 15 June 2019 the link that you didn’t regard it as dead link was not dead.

The other person who put the whole article is new here,Please do not ignore him.I like the way he was asking you to wrote the article in your neutral tone as usual.

He probably want you to be able to easily use sources in the article.2405:9800:BC11:BD0D:F581:888B:9EFF:5201 (talk) 17:59, 26 June 2019 (UTC)

I was blocked and need help[change source]

I was block back in February by WIPR with no reason added to the block, I was prohibited from editing anonymously but also prohibited from creating an account.

I don’t know whether you can help but I just wanted to see

(I believe I was blocked because I deleted a section of text that had no evidence to back it)

Thank you for your time {{subst:unsignedIP2 2600:387:2:811:0:0:0:3E}}

You were never blocked? Nigos (talk · contribs) 07:46, 8 July 2019 (UTC)
You were blocked because someone else was using a close IP address to you, or you were trying to evade your block. Nigos (talk · contribs) 07:48, 8 July 2019 (UTC)
More importantly they were blocked on and not We don't have anything to do with their blocks. -DJSasso (talk) 11:48, 8 July 2019 (UTC)

Bratz Girlz Really Rock[change source]

Hi Auntof6,

(Not sure if I should ask this here or at wp:Simple talk). I saw that you were involved in the deletion of Bratz Girlz Really Rock. I would like to read the wp:rfd that led to this deletion. What is the simplest way of locating this deletion discussion?

Thanks in advance, Ottawahitech (talk) 14:49, 17 July 2019 (UTC)

@Ottawahitech: Do a search in the Wikipedia namespace for pages that have that title in the page name. Here's a search string you could use:
intitle:/Bratz Girlz/
That search turns up two results. Apparently an article for a video game was also deleted. For your convenience, here are the two results:
Hope that helps. --Auntof6 (talk) 19:56, 17 July 2019 (UTC)
