Welcome[change source]

Hello! I noticed that you may have come here from another Wikipedia, so you know a little about how things work here. I hope you like it here and decide to stay! Here are some links to help you adjust:

There's a lot to do here. Most of it is writing articles that do not exist yet, which you can do by translating from other Wikipedias, but have a look around and see what you want to do. Thanks for joining us, and you know how to contact me if you need any help. BRP ever 07:38, 14 July 2018 (UTC)

regarding Marie Thérèse of Austria[change source]

The above title/name is CORRECT. She was a Habsburg of Spain yes, but also an Archduchess of AUSTRIA. The later of which took precedence over Infanta of Spain. The enwiki is wrong. Look at the gravestone it clearly says of AUSTRIA (in French obviously) (talk) 12:34, 26 January 2020 (UTC) I suggest a few of the children on here do some reasearch before they destroy things they know nothing about.

Please be kind and we need reliable sources to prove this. Revert warring will only cause you to be blocked.--Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 13:10, 26 January 2020 (UTC)

Please help update don't delete[change source]

Regarding Yukesh Chaudhary (Rajbanshi) page.

He has played in Nepali movies as actor but left his acting. because it was not mentioned in coverage. there is no reliable sources online. but can be found in newsPapers from the specific dates when movie was released.

Nope, until he can meet WP:GNG / en:WP:BIO and the sources are independent reliable sources (WP:RS), we can't include it. And we cannot be having promotional articles which almost all 3 versions are. Thanks.--Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 08:18, 10 February 2020 (UTC)

Guangdong Independence Movement[change source]

Hello i finished translating the article. I tried to be without problems but it needs to be refined and simplified. The article contains interesting and very important material from Chinese history that contains very valuable material and I have translated from Chinese into English. The article is just a little long and time consuming. Please correct and improve the article in a manner that is consistent with the procedures. Thank you very much for your kindnessAlexisssa (talk) 19:50, 9 February 2020 (UTC)

Hello there. If you get the time, copyedit the article please; when you do, try to get a sentence structure which is closer to that of the English language. Thanks. --Eptalon (talk) 21:58, 9 February 2020 (UTC)
@Alexisssa: please read what Eptalon said before. I agree this is very valuable. I know it isn't easy to translate long articles. Will try to help but I am a little busy recently. Take it slow but I am seeing improvements. All the best.--Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 08:21, 10 February 2020 (UTC)
I have also added a list of issues to the talk page of the article...--Eptalon (talk) 08:25, 10 February 2020 (UTC)
Agreed, these are the areas where the article needs improvement on. Nice summary Eptalon --Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 08:48, 10 February 2020 (UTC)

Warning[change source]


Please do not add quick deletion tags to articles without a good reason. If you think the article should be deleted, please explain your reason on the article's talk page. Thank you. --Pongydwong (talk) 15:21, 28 February 2020 (UTC)

@Pongydwong: Please read WP:DP. There is no explaning why the article should be deleted on talk pages. If it's QD, if the page author wishes to contest, please add {{wait}} on the article and then explain on talkpage. If RFD feel free to vote keep with good reasons. Regards, :)--Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 15:52, 28 February 2020 (UTC)

The Koxx[change source]

Why do you think this group is a boy band? It doesn't look to me like they are. --Auntof6 (talk) 21:07, 16 March 2020 (UTC)

@Auntof6: Sorry, I did not take a more in depth look at the fact they play instruments. Yes, they are better categorized as a musical group. Thanks for spotting it out.--Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 08:37, 17 March 2020 (UTC)

Question about WP:1STRIKE[change source]

So wait, if you are blocked on other projects, is that considered a warning here? I am confused. 🤔 Or is it so that they factor it in? See, I was blocked for being a sock of Andrew5 on the English Wikipedia, and for not being there to help Meta on, well, Meta. Also, please respond within 2 hours because I live in NY and that is only 30 minutes from my bedtime, no phones. Warmest regards, Gale5050 (talk) 23:29, 22 March 2020 (UTC)

PS if I am blocked here am I eligible for a global lock? And how do they get reversed? Gale5050 (talk) 23:30, 22 March 2020 (UTC)
@Gale5050: Please read the page WP:ONESTRIKE again, yes, blocks on the other projects will matter in how many warnings you will received. Please don't sock here. I cannot be responding so fast as I am in GMT+8. Please please don't get globally locked, but if you get blocked here will be hard to justify not to lock you. Per what Vermont says, please log off and stop contributing for a while, will be better for you. Reversal of global locks are possible, but very hard. Regards,--Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 09:03, 23 March 2020 (UTC)
Ok, I live in GMT-4, so we are 12 hours tonight (should be 9:08 PM in ur location)so I will take some time off and seldomely edit across 2020. Also, how do you reverse global locks. Also what do you mean by sock? Gale5050 (talk) 13:09, 23 March 2020 (UTC)
@Gale5050: When they say sock or socking they are referring to sockpuppetry. Also the guidelines of the one strike rule are detailed at WP:1STRIKE --Examknowtalk 13:20, 23 March 2020 (UTC)

Chinese Wikipedia[change source]

Can you help me there, I asked for help in the guestbook , thanks --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 23:47, 24 March 2020 (UTC)

@Thegooduser: Sorry I get to you so late that someone else had solved the issue (I hope). Hope the explanation there helps. Feel free to drop me a message on my zh / meta usertalk if you need more help as an alternative (I check the talk there more often than here).

how do i use diffs? i need to know to support myself in WP: AN thread. Gale5050 (talk) 16:35, 29 March 2020 (UTC)

Verify Sources[change source]

Hi, I want to know that these below websites articles can be use as a reliable sources for Wikipedia article?

Syedfalak (talk) 13:35, 31 March 2020 (UTC)

@Syedfalak: Are they independent of the subject? Do they cover the subject in depth? And please refer to this to determine.Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 15:30, 31 March 2020 (UTC)
@Camouflaged Mirage: thanks for your response. Actually i have read this page but still I'm not sure that can i use these websites as a sources or not. As I've created article on my draft and requesting someone to move this draft to article space but no one replying me on Simple talk page. Can you please open my draft and check that the sources I've added on it are reliable or not? I don't have that much knowledge as you and others have.. Thanks!Syedfalak (talk) 20:46, 31 March 2020 (UTC)
@Syedfalak: Firstly, the article seems promotional, words like " He has founded multiple successful businesses in the fields of marketing, software development, design, e-commerce, and more" is pure spam. We don't need this, we need the firms name itself. Delightful Islamabadians isn't one, as we discussed here. So whatsoever related to this can be removed. Hence, the entire biography section is useless. Then we are faced with what make the page notable? Seems nothing. So now it's not an issue of source, now is do this person notable or not at the first place. Please read this and this. At least the person must be mentioned somewhere in depth for a few times. I don't think the 3 are good places to be mentioned in. Regards,Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 15:59, 31 March 2020 (UTC)
@Camouflaged Mirage:i understand that the words are promotional but we can remove or replace that words. And second you mention that "entire biography section is useless what make the page notable?" This is the exactly issue I'm facing and I don't understand what make a person notable even after alot of reads my sleep is spoiled I'm reading Wikipedia all the night to understand what is notability but still I'm confused. Even I saw many articles where they just added their official website as a references and their articles are still published no one deletes that article. Another question, you said "At least the person must be mentioned somewhere in depth for a few times" what is that mean? Thanks!Syedfalak (talk) 21:15, 31 March 2020 (UTC)
@Syedfalak: Let us focus on your page and ignore the rest. what is notablity is simple, cover in independent, separate reliable sources in depth (a few paragraphs at least). Alternative, the person must have significant achievements. Please read the links given to you here and in elsewhere. Somewhere=a reliable press (e.g. The Times etc), in depth (an interview) and a few times means several of such in depth coverage.Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 17:05, 31 March 2020 (UTC)
@Camouflaged Mirage:i would be very grateful if you focus on my page. I have press and articles about myself on other sites i don't know that can be use as a reliable sources or not can you please read and tell me are these articles can used as a reliable sources for Wikipedia? Syedfalak (talk) 22:38, 31 March 2020 (UTC)
@Syedfalak:Your first source state "This is a self-published source", we cannot take the person own publishing as independent. Rest of the sources are the same issue, lack of independence and they aren't reliable anyway as they are blogs, small magazines, some random websites. And I read you are writing about yourself, as in the above you said so, I will suggest you read the full message on your talkpage. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 18:55, 31 March 2020 (UTC)
@Camouflaged Mirage:i just read the message you left on my talk page and thanks for the information. And i didn't publish that articles which i shared links with you. As one of my dream is to have a Wikipedia page about me and I've 100k+ followers on my Facebook profile, they know about me and few months ago I asked to my followers that if someone can published article on Wikipedia then tell me so they said that first you need is articles on different publications so many of my followers published all the articles on different websites. I never published even 1 article about me. As you said these all articles are blogs, small magazines so is that possible to create Wikipedia page and add information according to that source (i don't need a paragraph about myself i just need a biography page and this is my dream) and once there are more reliable sources available then Wikipedia should allow people to add more information on my page time by time. This is what i want.Syedfalak (talk) 00:23, 1 April 2020 (UTC)

Wikipedia Asian Month 2019

Dear Participants and Organizers,

Just wanted to say, that I'm really sorry If I end up busy during that time, my school is killing me with around 10+ subjects and lots of readings too, I don't think I'm doing well in school --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 02:26, 13 October 2020 (UTC)

@Thegooduser: It's okay :). Real life is more important always. I might be busy too, the reason for more organizers is that should we get busy, there will be someone to handle the judging and I think going by last year 10 pages, there shouldn't be any stress. Also very sorry if I do get busy in the period of time (which judging from my real life), it going to be (I didn't expect that as well when saying about that). Take care.

WAM[change source]

Hey Camouflaged, sorry I saw your message late. I think we can use #wikipedia simple, as it is rarely used. There isn't much crowd there, and having a conversation there would make it a little more transparent, although not that much. I will create a file like last year to summarise the reasons for not being approved, or reasons why approved. And we can discuss the rest and sort it out. :) -BRP ever 01:59, 30 October 2020 (UTC)

@BRPever: Yeah, also as I send it quite late per our timing. Sure, let's use wikipedia simple. Do inform me when will be a good time to discuss the judging, maybe when there are 10 pages to judge? I am thinking a weekly, 1h meeting (although I don't think we need so long) will be good. :) Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 08:24, 30 October 2020 (UTC)
Anyday past 7 PM (GMP +10:30) is suitable for me. Are you free around that time? If not, we can arrange some other time.-BRP ever 09:51, 30 October 2020 (UTC)
8 - 9 PM UTC +8 will be fine for me, is it okay for you @BRPever:. Maybe on Sat / Sun (Weekly basis?). Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 10:59, 30 October 2020 (UTC)
I think that will be alright. If you are free, we can discuss it over irc tomorrow at 8 - 9 PM UTC +8.-BRP ever 06:05, 31 October 2020 (UTC)
@BRPever: Sure. :) Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 10:46, 31 October 2020 (UTC)

Fountain tool[change source]

the link you gave me on my talk page, is broken. --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 22:27, 10 November 2020 (UTC)

It's the correct link, now the server seems down :( CM-Public (talk) 22:35, 10 November 2020 (UTC)
CM-Public Thank you for letting me know --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 22:39, 10 November 2020 (UTC)
No problem. Anyway on this account I cannot edit your talkpage, so it's here. GYH cosmetic edits won't affect WAM much, don't worry. CM-Public (talk) 22:41, 10 November 2020 (UTC)
Got it! My talkpage is semi-protected for a little bit less than a year now --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 22:43, 10 November 2020 (UTC)
I logged in to fountain tool, it gave me a server error again, once I log out of my Wikipedia account, will it log out of the fountain tool? --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 20:43, 11 November 2020 (UTC)
@Thegooduser: Still down then. I guess so for the 2nd part. I think now we cannot submit neither can we judge. Sad :( Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 13:52, 12 November 2020 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) It is working fine for me. I am able to submit articles. :) Saroj Uprety (talk) 15:54, 12 November 2020 (UTC)
@Saroj Uprety: Thanks, seems fixed again. This is on and off. cc @Thegooduser: Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 16:05, 12 November 2020 (UTC)

Mistake[change source]

  • When Judging your article on Fountain, I think I accidentality clicked "not accept" button on fountain, because of my comments, I think this was the wrong button to push, so you can re-submit again, once my concerns about the article are fixed. I only meant to comment, so you can fix it up and for it to be re-reviewed. Very sorry about this! --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 22:03, 15 November 2020 (UTC)
    @Thegooduser No worries, actually no need to resubmit, when I make the needed changes you can use the same portal to click the accept. :) CM-Public (talk) 22:25, 15 November 2020 (UTC)
CM-Public Sounds good! I freaked out cause I thought it was the wrong button. Also what time zone are you in? --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 22:26, 15 November 2020 (UTC)
UTC +8 @Thegooduser. CM-Public (talk) 22:27, 15 November 2020 (UTC)
Got it! Thanks. This is so I can reference when you'd be offline and online, so I'd know a good time to leave message or questions If I were to be online when it's daytime on your side, etc. --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 22:29, 15 November 2020 (UTC)
@Thegooduser My timing is erratic though, but still I'll try to respond ASAP. :) CM-Public (talk) 22:31, 15 November 2020 (UTC)

Babel Userbox Help[change source]

Okay, so I've asked literally everywhere, I need help with babel userbox, does en:Template:User zh-yue-3, say that you can speak cantonese, but not read it? I'm not sure if that userbox will read right to you, becasue you're a ZH and not a yue. I'm a yue, but unfortunately, I sadly cannot (I can barely) read Cantonese, but at least I can understand and speak it! --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 03:01, 16 November 2020 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) @Thegooduser: Google translate is your friend! It tells me that that userbox says "This user can communicate in proficient Cantonese." --Auntof6 (talk) 05:11, 16 November 2020 (UTC)
@Thegooduser I am zh, but yes, not yue, but I can read a little yue. What @Auntof6 said is correct, it means you can speak in proficient Cantonese only. As of reading, there isn't any indication. Regards, Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 08:00, 16 November 2020 (UTC)
I was a bit hesitant with Google Translate, but I guess I can use the userbox now --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 00:25, 17 November 2020 (UTC)
I added YUE userbox on meta, it doesn't specify that I can read read it, right? --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 03:20, 17 November 2020 (UTC)
@Thegooduser Yes, doesn't specify. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 08:36, 17 November 2020 (UTC)

FYI[change source]

I received your ping and will reply shortly on the article's TP --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 00:41, 17 November 2020 (UTC)

Fountain tool[change source]

For the tool, why are there two "+1 accepted" for an article? Are all 3 of us supposed to click that for an article to officially be accepted? --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 01:33, 17 November 2020 (UTC)

@Thegooduser Each of us can either accept an article or reject, if we accept, it will be +1, reject will be 0 (i.e. -1). The minimum for an article to pass is 1 point, so i.e. 2 of us accept, 1 of us reject , still accepted. (1+1-1=1). But just one of us accept and no reject --> pass. Hope this explains. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 08:39, 17 November 2020 (UTC)
Ok! Sorry to bother, but If I want to do username change, should I wait till WAM is over, to avoid confusions, etc? --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 00:31, 19 November 2020 (UTC)
@Thegooduser We will just have to change the username in the fountain (I will check how to do so) as well as our local/meta pages, shouldn't be a big deal. If it's urgent and privacy related, I will suggest you do it and the cleanup we can settle later. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 08:59, 19 November 2020 (UTC)
It's not really ugrent, per say, but many of my username choices are taken, It's just that people at school have seen my username before, and I don't want them to find me on wiki, for privacy reasons, but then again, renaming, puts an redirect on your old username to the new one... --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 00:58, 20 November 2020 (UTC)
@Thegooduser For the redirect, you can ask it to be supressed , I think it's best to contact Wikipedia:Oversight or a steward, we have some admins who is also stewards who can help, like BRPever and etc, see the admin list. Regards, CM-Public (talk) 01:03, 20 November 2020 (UTC)
