Wikibirthday[change source]

Happy Wikibirthday @Auntof6: may you live longer to fight bad ass vandals and build our beautiful wiki. Asante sana --DJ ( - ) 20:10, 18 August 2019 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) wasn't it a month ago? Computer Fizz (talk) 20:26, 18 August 2019 (UTC)
@Computer Fizz: My first edit here looks like it was on 18 August 2008. It doesn't seem like 11 years! --Auntof6 (talk) 03:21, 19 August 2019 (UTC)
oh, i was going by your account creation, not by first edit. Either way happy (late) wikibirthday :) Computer Fizz (talk) 18:33, 19 August 2019 (UTC)
@RazorTheDJ: Thanks! --Auntof6 (talk) 03:21, 19 August 2019 (UTC)
Wow...11 years. Congrats, and thank you for your continued contributions. I could reasonably guess a significant amount of the vandals we block have been living for less time than you've been editing. Best, Vermont (talk) 03:51, 19 August 2019 (UTC)

likely changed to expected on Hurricane Dorian page[change source]

When I woke up this morning, I found the word likely had been changed to expected on the recent Hurricane Dorian article that I made recently. Can you say why likely was changed to expected? Is likely not as simple? Angela Maureen (talk) 21:46, 31 August 2019 (UTC)

That change was for tone. I thought expected showed better encyclopedic tone than likely. I suppose it could be even better (simpler) to say something like "Meteorologists believed that Dorian would probably strike..." --Auntof6 (talk) 22:08, 31 August 2019 (UTC)

Dupes[change source]

Hello. Could you take a look at {{Placeholder}} and {{Text placeholder}}? They seem to be duplicates. (Talk/留言/토론/Discussion) 22:25, 31 August 2019 (UTC)

Or is it really needed? (Talk/留言/토론/Discussion) 22:28, 31 August 2019 (UTC)

SimpleEN[change source]

Hello. Do you now how to develop articles in SimpleEN while they are already well developed on ENWP? Should I copy and simplify them with addition of Template:Translated page? What in case if these articles seem to be already simple on ENWP? Eurohunter (talk) 09:52, 1 September 2019 (UTC)

changing wording[change source]

sorry about changing the wording on WP blocks and bans. I was trying to make it more simple. I was under the impression that only changes to what the actual policy is should require discussion (although that's why i requested review, just incase). Should I post on the talk page about my proposed change? Computer Fizz (talk) 04:12, 10 September 2019 (UTC)

Info[change source]

Hi Aunt, the regular vandal is back today, so I have just been blocking on sight without warning, and hiding the revision comments. I don't think we need to give him an audience for his activities. He is also sending emails and trying to reset my passwords too. I will just keep it up for as long as it takes.--Peterdownunder (talk) 23:05, 10 September 2019 (UTC)
