Sheen Das request for an review[change source]

Hello, sir why add speedy deletion for Sheen Das Please tell me on talk page of Sheen Das review again this article thanks,

Accidentally created useless category page[change source]

I created the Category:Swedish monarchs page, but later realized I should've used the Category:Kings and Queens of Sweden instead. So I'm just suggesting that the Swedish monarchs category page be deleted. Unless you think there is a use for it. Thanks. --Alicezeppelin (talk) 11:54, 15 December 2017 (UTC)

@Alicezeppelin: Good question. They may not be the same: "monarchs" would include only kings and queens who reigned, but "Kings and Queens" could include consorts. This is something I've pondered before: do we want/need to distinguish those in every case? If so, we should use "monarchs". For now, I think I'll redirect the category you created, but I think it's worth a wider discussion. --Auntof6 (talk) 12:54, 15 December 2017 (UTC)

Draft page creation[change source]

Hello

Recently I've a draft page that needs creation and it crossed the names of famous authors and lawyers "Arabic" and there is a draft page that needs creation https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:Mustapha_Kamel. --105.156.165.190 (talk) 20:33, 16 December 2017 (UTC)

I'm not sure what you're asking. However, the page you link to is on English Wikipedia. This is Simple English Wikipedia, a separate site. --Auntof6 (talk) 20:44, 16 December 2017 (UTC)

Sorry[change source]

I feel so stupid after what I did, Ive been doing antivandal for 3 years on english wikipedia and never have done this, I dont know why i managed to screw up so badly, thank you for understanding, happy holidays --Zppix (talk) 03:31, 18 December 2017 (UTC)

No problem, it's easy to see a large number of edits like that and think there's something amiss. I see that you made an effort to make it right by undoing some of your changes. If you see something like that again, just take a closer look. --Auntof6 (talk) 04:02, 18 December 2017 (UTC)

Attribution[change source]

It actually is required for templates. Its just that most people ignore it because they don't think about the fact that source code also falls under creative commons licensing. I myself have fallen prey to it in the past, its why I always now bring over atleast one imported edit. -DJSasso (talk) 00:59, 22 December 2017 (UTC)

I should note though that I think I brought over an edit for all of those anyway when I saw him creating without attributing so they are good anyway. -DJSasso (talk) 01:00, 22 December 2017 (UTC)

Merry Christmas![change source]

Hi Auntof6, I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year,
Thanks for all your help and contributions on the 'pedia! Face-smile.svg,

Thanks, Davey2010, same to you! --Auntof6 (talk) 18:22, 23 December 2017 (UTC)

Final Warning![change source]

Stop! If you continue to edit Wikipedia, and not spend time with family during the holidays, you will be blocked. Please use Alt+F4 to prevent being blocked. Thanks. Merry Christmas... Zppix (talk) 18:43, 23 December 2017 (UTC) P.S: this is a joke!

Protection of List of countries[change source]

Hi,

I can't find a dedicated place for requesting protection for pages but List of countries seems to be undergoing a lot of vandalism and disruptive edits and I see you're an active administrator so I thought I'd just drop you a line here.

Thanks,

StraussInTheHouse (talk) 18:16, 26 December 2017 (UTC)

@StraussInTheHouse: I semi-protected the page for three months. That's not likely to cause much of a problem because there are seldom any countries that need to be added or removed. There is no specific place for this kind of request, so WP:AN is a good place. --Auntof6 (talk) 18:26, 26 December 2017 (UTC)
Excellent, will do in future. Merry Christmas! StraussInTheHouse (talk) 18:27, 26 December 2017 (UTC)

Information about Sheen Das[change source]

Just letting you know the users that you RFD'd for Sheen Das, keep removing the RFD templates even though I have already asked them not too. --Clarkcj12 (talk) 19:52, 27 December 2017 (UTC)

@Clarkcj12: Yes I'm watching the page. Thanks for reverting. Keep leaving them messages: if they continue, maybe they will be blocked. --Auntof6 (talk) 20:02, 27 December 2017 (UTC)

Please refund deleted article[change source]

Hi Auntof6, at my request on December 8, 2017, you userified an article which you deleted shortly after I added to it Simple because of this claim: Complex article from another Wikipedia, little sign of simplification/conversion. I have now finished simplifying Predictions of Wikipedia's end but am not permitted by the software to move it back to article space by myself. Can you please move it back? Thanks, Ottawahitech (talk) 14:40, 28 December 2017 (UTC)Please ping me

Happy New Year![change source]

Happy New Year, Auntof6! Angela Maureen (talk) 01:36, 31 December 2017 (UTC)

173.91.8.87[change source]

Please block this user ASAP. They keep creating no context pages, pages copied from EN, or pages in Spanish that are gibberish when translated (I speak Spanish). The mass creations are flooding RC, my QD log, and their talk page. Might want to flood flag yourself when deleting the pages. —Glendales 03:24, 31 December 2017 (UTC)

how was your Holiday Season[change source]

Hey Auntof6: How was your Christmas and New Year? Angela Maureen (talk) 12:24, 2 January 2018 (UTC)

Not the best, actually. I had a real-life situation that had to take precedence over anything holiday-related, so I wasn't thinking much about the holidays. --Auntof6 (talk) 17:24, 2 January 2018 (UTC)

9/11 & Hawaii[change source]

The article on Hawaii explicitly says Hawaii became a state on August 21, 1959. That’s almost a decade after Pearl Harbor. —Glendales 00:09, 3 January 2018 (UTC)

But it was part of the US before that. The US consists of more than the states. --Auntof6 (talk) 00:11, 3 January 2018 (UTC)
Hawaii is still a state, so i think what you meant was the US is more than the "main land" states (like Illinois). Zppix (talk) 01:24, 5 January 2018 (UTC)
@Zppix:No, I meant two things. At the time of the attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii was not a state but was still part of the US because it was a US territory. Also, today the US consists of more than the 50 states, because we have 5 territories and several other possessions. --Auntof6 (talk) 01:46, 5 January 2018 (UTC)

Sro23[change source]

Do you have any clue what “FFS” means? —Glendales 00:37, 3 January 2018 (UTC)

Also this editor seems slightly suspicious. They have only been editing here highly infrequently to remove certain vandalism, and apparently once had rollback rights in August 2016 based on the edit summaries, yet I can’t find any log of rollback being granted/revoked. There is the possibility that the user had a global rename, but I still find it odd that the user would know about paticular pieces of vandalism on a wiki where they rarely edit when none of the vandalism was to their user talk page. I’d keep an eye out. —Glendales 00:40, 3 January 2018 (UTC)
"FFS" means "For fuck's sake", if you'll pardon my French. I was frustrated I kept getting obnoxious template after obnoxious template after obnoxious template when it was clear I wanted to be left alone. Sorry. I have rollback rights on the English wikipedia. My guess is those pages were imported from enwiki to the Simple English wikipedia. Sro23 (talk) 00:57, 3 January 2018 (UTC)
So if you want to be left alone, why do you keep doing stuff like reverting vandalism without warning the user (not allowed), and blanking your talk page without explanation or archival (allowed but discouraged)? Also how do you know about specific pieces of vandalism on this wiki that were not on your user talk page when you hardly edit here anyway? —Glendales 01:12, 3 January 2018 (UTC)
1. The vandalism happened days ago, so it doesn't make much sense to warn the editor now. 2. It's my talk page, I'm allowed to blank it if I please. 3. I have experience on the English wikipedia. Sro23 (talk) 01:25, 3 January 2018 (UTC)
Meh, whatever I guess. —Glendales 01:32, 3 January 2018 (UTC)
A couple of thoughts have come to mind reading this thread. Firstly, Instead of posting on an individual's talk page, it is best to report cases on AN as you may get a response sooner. Secondly, Sro23 is a well known and respected editor on the English Wikipedia, so I wouldn't expect anything less from them on any other Wikimedia project. Third, I don't know of any hard rule that requires editors to warn after reverting vandalism. Although warning is highly encouraged around here, you won't find yourself in much trouble if you choose not to use warnings. Lastly, a user is almost always entitled to their user space and can have it as they please. I really hate to see a witch hunt, so let's all assume good faith and stop worrying about the tiny things, rather focus on positively contributing to the encyclopedia. --Eurodyne (talk) 02:41, 3 January 2018 (UTC)
Have to echo Eurodyne here, no requirement to warn. While it is helpful it doesn't have to be done, and there are times when I don't bother. Oh and yes those old edits were imported here when I imported those pages. -DJSasso (talk) 20:57, 3 January 2018 (UTC)
Sro23 is a well known and respected editor on the English Wikipedia: Well known and respected by whom[source?]? Have you seen the block log of sro23’s user-page? (see: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Log&page=User%3ASro23). Sorry User:Sro23, please don’t take this personally.
a user is almost always entitled to their user space and can have it as they please: I am glad to hear this from two simple-wiki admins, but would feel even better if it was a policy or a guideline documented on this wiki. This is certainly not the case on the en-wiki where my own edits to my user-page have been removed by a well known and respected admin, and not one of the 86 watchers of my user-page (see:https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User:Ottawahitech&action=info#mw-pageinfo-watchers) dared revert this admin. BTW user-page sanctity is also not enforced on several other wikis such as: Meta-wiki and wiki-news, and probably others. Also for those who want to see what my user page looked like before its content was removed See:https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User%3AOttawahitech%2Fw%3AUser%3AOttawahitech
I really hate to see a witch hunt: So do I. Ottawahitech (talk) 15:59, 5 January 2018 (UTC) Please ping me
My block log is clean. I'm an SPI clerk on enwiki, obviously someone there knows who I am in order for that to happen, and I very much tried to defend your good name on w:en:Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Ottawahitech. Sro23 (talk) 17:16, 5 January 2018 (UTC)

To answer the original question, yes, I do know what "ffs" means. Now could y'all take this discussion elsewhere? --Auntof6 (talk) 18:40, 5 January 2018 (UTC)

Reversal of Page Edits (Religion and mythology)[change source]

Would you be so kind so as to cease your reversal or disturbance of my edits to the pages concerning mythological figures? I genuinely put in a considerable amount of time to make them appear more professional than before and I would really appreciate if I could be allowed to continue to do so within the foreseeable future. 71.31.61.85 (talk) 04:59, 3 January 2018 (UTC)

Unfortunately, making the language in the articles "more professional" also made it more complex. Here on Simple English Wikipedia, simple language is required. You might want to read Wikipedia:How to write Simple English pages to learn about the requirements here. If that doesn't fit with what you want to do, you might prefer to write for the regular English Wikipedia. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. --Auntof6 (talk) 05:14, 3 January 2018 (UTC)

Request Undelete[change source]

Hey Auntof6, I was wondering if it was possible for you to undelete, Category:Templates tracking Wikidata due to the fact that it now has more than 3 pages in it, which will most likely grow over time as more and more of our templates pull data from Wikidata. As we move along the year I am hoping we can convert more templates to use Wikidata format as it would make it much easier to keep things up to date. --Clarkcj12 (talk) 18:46, 3 January 2018 (UTC)

@Clarkcj12: It looks like User:Djsasso has taken care of this. I would also like to see more of our templates use Wikidata. I have just been lazy about learning how to do that. --Auntof6 (talk) 19:10, 3 January 2018 (UTC)
@Auntof6: Could you take care of User talk:5.90.115.235 looks like they are only here to do vandalism, and I might need some revdel on my userpage. And maybe semi-protection if you can. --Clarkcj12 (talk) 19:11, 3 January 2018 (UTC)
Done and done. --Auntof6 (talk) 19:17, 3 January 2018 (UTC)

Dumbo (character)[change source]

Do you think that this article should be redirected to Dumbo#Dumbo the Flying Elephant? Most of the information is the same, and the article in English also redirects to the Cast section of Dumbo. 99.56.73.240 (talk) 19:15, 3 January 2018 (UTC)

certain words changed/removed[change source]

Every time I use furthermore, the word is removed; I don't understand why. Also, the words fear and motives were removed from one article page I recently created. Angela Maureen (talk) 08:46, 12 January 2018 (UTC)

Furthermore is not a simple word. Neither is motives. If you want me to comment on fear, you need to tell me what article you're talking about. --Auntof6 (talk) 08:50, 12 January 2018 (UTC)
The article is Gender differences in crime. That was where fear was taken out. Angela Maureen (talk) 09:05, 12 January 2018 (UTC)
I took that out because I was trying to eliminate the complex phrase driven by. Instead of saying women are driven by fear (when committing crimes), I said they were more likely to commit crimes because they were afraid. --Auntof6 (talk) 09:39, 12 January 2018 (UTC)

Rollback request[change source]

Hi,

Over the past few days I've noticed an increase in the amount of vandalism on Simple and as such I've requested rollback but I'm not sure how regularly the requests are reviewed so I just thought I'd ask an admin to take a look at it. (Wikipedia:Requests for permissions/Rollback)

Thanks,

StraussInTheHouse (talk) 12:15, 12 January 2018 (UTC)

two articles[change source]

Two things: first of all is User:September 1988/History of pizza ready for mainspace. Secondly, is User:September 1988/Marriage proposal finished or does it still need work? I cannot work on these articles until I get confirmation. Angela Maureen (talk) 20:22, 12 January 2018 (UTC)

Request removal[change source]

Was a missclick, didn't notice I removed it. -DJSasso (talk) 01:47, 13 January 2018 (UTC)

Some Talkpage edits removed.[change source]

Hello AuntOf6, I revision-deleted a few edits of an IP editor, who seems to have been upset about being blocked, and who started insulting you. As an admin, you can still see these edits, and undo the deletion if you want. Note also, that I have blocked the IP for three months for this incivility, seems to have been a repeat customer. Have a nice week-end. --Eptalon (talk) 12:06, 14 January 2018 (UTC)

@Eptalon: Thanks: I approve of those revdels. I typically leave uncivil talk page remarks for the page owner to see and deal with, but these were vile enough that I would have done the same. --Auntof6 (talk) 18:37, 14 January 2018 (UTC)

Error on deletion of Ashish Seth[change source]

Hello, you recently speedy deleted the page Ashish Seth, kindly note the request of speedy deletion was for uploaded image of article on wikimedia commons by the user, and not the article itself. kindly do the correction.Jasminery (talk) 07:54, 18 January 2018 (UTC)

The article was deleted because it did not show notability for the subject. It wasn't anything to do with the image. --Auntof6 (talk) 09:12, 18 January 2018 (UTC)
