Saying hello[change source]

Hello Kobi56ssj7 (talk) 10:02, 15 May 2021 (UTC)

Hi there! Can I help you? C4Bomb2024 Talk 10:05, 15 May 2021 (UTC)

Changing to simple[change source]

Hi there - when you are changing words to be simple, make sure it has the same meaning. In the article Gun you changed 'jargon' to 'times' and 'deadly' to 'dangerous'. These all have different meanings. For 'jargon', you could possibly use 'usage' and for 'deadly' you could use 'fatal' or 'lethal' and if needed link them to wiktionary. Please be careful in the future that you do not change the meaning of the word when simplifying. I have not changed the article, as I wanted to leave that up to you.

@PotsdamLamb: I’m ok with that. Sorry. C4Bomb2024 Talk 18:06, 16 May 2021 (UTC)

@Ferien: I didn’t create the page though. C4Bomb2024 Talk 19:46, 21 May 2021 (UTC)
You created the redirect when you moved it which is why I notified you. --Ferien (talk) 19:54, 21 May 2021 (UTC)

Ok, sorry about that. C4Bomb2024 Talk 20:13, 21 May 2021 (UTC)

Welcoming new users[change source]

Hi - It is generally a good practice to wait a couple of days when a new user registers their account and let them work on some articles and such before welcoming them to WP. Also, we do not welcome IP users. Thanks! PotsdamLamb (talk) 16:36, 24 May 2021 (UTC)

@PotsdamLamb: Uh...ok, sorry about that. C4Bomb2024 Talk 16:38, 24 May 2021 (UTC)
No worries - would just suck to waste your time and they may just be creating a vandalism-only account. PotsdamLamb (talk) 16:56, 24 May 2021 (UTC)
Yeah, I agree with that. C4Bomb2024 Talk 18:49, 24 May 2021 (UTC)
@PotsdamLamb: I would argue that IP users can be welcomed if they have been particularly helpful, although it is uncommon for us to welcome IPs. --Ferien (talk) 17:35, 25 May 2021 (UTC)

May 2021[change source]

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. Everyone is welcome to make helpful changes to Wikipedia. However, some of your changes, like those to "John F. Kennedy", did not seem to be helpful and have been reverted or removed. If you want to try out changing Wikipedia to learn more about how it works, please use the sandbox. Thank you. Auntof6 (talk) 17:20, 25 May 2021 (UTC)

Sorry about that. C4Bomb2024 Talk 17:24, 25 May 2021 (UTC)

@Auntof6: Please could you explain why my edit was not helpful (not to be rude)? C4Bomb2024 Talk 17:28, 25 May 2021 (UTC)
I am not Auntof6 but John F. Kennedy is not African-American. Obama was the first African-American president... --Ferien (talk) 17:32, 25 May 2021 (UTC)
@Ferien: Ok, thanks for the heads up there. I clicked the wrong category, I’ll try not to do that next time. We all make mistakes :) C4Bomb2024 Talk 17:34, 25 May 2021 (UTC)
@C4Bomb2024: Yes, it was the reason that Ferien said. I thought it might have been an honest mistake, which is why the warning was only level 1. And it's never rude to politely ask for an explanation. :) --Auntof6 (talk) 18:13, 25 May 2021 (UTC)
Ok. C4Bomb2024 Talk 18:19, 25 May 2021 (UTC)

Categories[change source]

Hi on the article Shad Gaspard you added the category of death by drowning, I removed it as it is already in the Accidental death by drowning category. PotsdamLamb (talk) 22:19, 25 May 2021 (UTC)

Oh ok, sorry if I set off a red flag there. C4Bomb2024 Talk 22:20, 25 May 2021 (UTC)

Dates on tags[change source]

Please don't change the dates on the tags you see in articles. They are organized by date so we can work on them. If they all get changed to May 2021, then we do not know which ones are the oldest and need work on. PotsdamLamb (talk) 23:41, 25 May 2021 (UTC)

Damnit, sorry. C4Bomb2024 Talk 07:09, 26 May 2021 (UTC)
All good. Maybe before you do something ask Ferien or myself as we are pretty versed and if we don’t know we can point you in the right direction. PotsdamLamb (talk) 09:12, 26 May 2021 (UTC)

Blocking tags and such[change source]

Hi when an admin has placed a tag on a user page, block, sockpuppet, etc., please do not replace it. The admins handle all of that and it can lead to you getting blocked or banned. This is in reference to User:ScrapheapNinjaShuriken77. I have reverted it back to the notice the admin had on the page. So just an FYI. PotsdamLamb (talk) 23:24, 29 May 2021 (UTC)
