Welcome[change source]

Hello! I am assuming you have come over from the English Wikipedia, so you are probably familiar with the way this wiki works. I hope you like it here and decide to stay. Here are a few links to help you adjust:

There is much to do here. For example, there are a lot of articles that do not exist yet, which you can bring over from the English Wikipedia and simplify. Do have a look around and see what you would like to do. Thank you for joining us, and you know how to contact me if you need help. Hiàn (talk) 21:35, 12 February 2019 (UTC)

@Hiàn: your assumption is correct; thanks for the warm welcome --DannyS712 (talk) 21:37, 12 February 2019 (UTC)

Missing map[change source]

I noticed you tried to make it blank if the map was missing. It is actually preferable to have the error message so that we know we need to create it. If you see one missing and you don't want to create it yourself just let me know and I will create it. -DJSasso (talk) 16:53, 3 May 2019 (UTC)

@Djsasso: will do, thanks. I don't remember where I saw the error, but I'll remember this in the future. --DannyS712 (talk) 17:51, 3 May 2019 (UTC)
Yeah I think I found the one you saw and fixed it. I have reverted back to an older version that had a fallback in it to continue working if it had the old system until I get all our templates converted. -DJSasso (talk) 17:53, 3 May 2019 (UTC)

Reverted my change[change source]

Hello! Why you reverted my change with Template:Infobox rocket? It is only in use with the Space Shuttle article. I am just defining the terms hard to the readers (eg. Height, Diameter, Mass etc.).

—Your's sincerely, Soumya-8974 (talk) 05:20, 4 May 2019 (UTC)

I don't think those terms are "hard to the readers", and the point of a template is for it to be reused in other articles, even if its only used once currently. --DannyS712 (talk) 18:40, 4 May 2019 (UTC)

vandalism and due diligence[change source]

Hi Danny, I don't know if you're having an off day or what but you restored a ton of vandalism by undoing my redirects, which were fixing garbage from an LTA and requesting deletion of clearly notable (Grammy or platinum certified) musical artists (en:Sevendust, en:Matchbook Romance, en:Method Man & Redman.) Please take more care when nominating things that are very clearly notable, even if the article needs work. Praxidicae (talk) 22:53, 4 May 2019 (UTC)

@Praxidicae: sorry, I had a really stressful day and when I read the stubs I didn't do enough background research. But, I do believe that, in their current form, they do not have a claim of notability - I'll work on them to change that. Sorry, --DannyS712 (talk) 22:57, 4 May 2019 (UTC)
Common sense applies here, and then reverting my edit after that, which contained a very detailed explanation is a bit uncalled for. Just because the stubs don't explicitly state why something is notable, much like every other project, a 5 second search would have shown you that they are indeed notable and please look at the history of articles. I also find it helpful when evaluating articles outside of my home wiki to check the wikidata link on the side. If there are articles on numerous projects, there's a good chance they're notable.Praxidicae (talk) 23:01, 4 May 2019 (UTC)
Will do, sorry. --DannyS712 (talk) 23:02, 4 May 2019 (UTC)
cc Macdonald-ross (talk · contribs). Those articles claimed notability and are easily notable subjects. Short articles don't constitute a lack of notability. They were LTA creations made into one-sentence stubs that can be formatted and expanded in time. There's an increasing problem of A4's being used for articles that are deemed to be not notable rather than those that don't have claims. However, these subjects all have significant articles on the English Wikipedia. Thanks, Vermont (talk) 23:50, 4 May 2019 (UTC)
Yes, I agree. Macdonald-ross (talk) 07:01, 5 May 2019 (UTC)

twinkle redesign[change source]

Here are some mockups I made of possible GUI changes:
Tw2 1.png
Tw2 2.png
Tw2 3.png


Do you like them, or any ideas? Or do you think they should be implemented Computer Fizz (talk) 09:25, 13 May 2019 (UTC)

@Computer Fizz: both of those would be really hard to implement - the UI is based on morebits.js. But, I can update the functionality. --DannyS712 (talk) 22:07, 13 May 2019 (UTC)
I posted three images, so what do you mean by 'both'? Which one is the functionality? Computer Fizz (talk) 01:32, 14 May 2019 (UTC)
@Computer Fizz: sorry, I'm tired. All 3 of those are UI based. By updating the functionality, I mean updating the current functions. Sorry --DannyS712 (talk) 01:35, 14 May 2019 (UTC)
So are they not updatable without changing morebits? I wouldn't think they'd be since twinkle offers multiple kinds of dialogs already but if it is would it be possible to expand that? Computer Fizz (talk) 01:38, 14 May 2019 (UTC)
@Computer Fizz: since I know nothing about how morebits works, the only way I could do that (that I can think of) is to fork the current enwiki version of twinkle, and adapt it to here. --DannyS712 (talk) 01:44, 14 May 2019 (UTC)
Computer Fizz The first one is sort of doable, the second one is impossible. The third one, may be possible depending on which skin you are using. Also, you could check out User:DannyS712/Quick-Undo which bypasses the Publish Changes page when performing a normal undo :)  — FR 06:40, 14 May 2019 (UTC)
@Fr30799386: Why is the second one impossible? Seems like it's just the same as all other TW dialogs. Computer Fizz (talk) 11:49, 14 May 2019 (UTC)
Computer Fizz, The simple.wikipedia.org says dialog is a prompt dialog, one that is in built into the browser. Besides completely rebuilding the dialog from scratch (which would take non-trivial coding and probably not work as well the browser one for certain reasons) there is no way to modify that particular dialog.  — FR 15:29, 14 May 2019 (UTC)
@FR30799386: I just thought it would be simple enough to make since twinkle already has custom dialogs. but considering I couldn't even get an independent copy of Twinkle to run without errors, I'll take your word for it. Computer Fizz (talk) 18:29, 14 May 2019 (UTC)
Yeah the part which I was saying would be hard/not worth changing is actually the UI. That is the part where we are very far apart from en.wiki. It is why I said we could probably patch in features if you wanted them but didn't mention UI. -DJSasso (talk) 15:35, 14 May 2019 (UTC)
@Djsasso: So what about the shift click and the 'more' thing, would that be possible? Computer Fizz (talk) 18:29, 14 May 2019 (UTC)

Thanks, but...[change source]

...I was already fixing the page names. You need to give the page creator a little time to do that! --Auntof6 (talk) 04:47, 12 June 2019 (UTC)

@Auntof6: sorry! I can look into fixing that part of TW, if you want. --DannyS712 (talk) 04:48, 12 June 2019 (UTC)
That would be great, if you are experienced with Twinkle code (I'm not). Another piece that could use fixing is that, when you RfD a template, it ignores the checkbox for adding noinclude tags around the RfD notice. --Auntof6 (talk) 04:51, 12 June 2019 (UTC)
@Auntof6: I was looking into updating SEWP's version of twinkle - maybe I should just start from the current enwiki version, and adapt that. It might be easier --DannyS712 (talk) 04:52, 12 June 2019 (UTC)
Either way, you might want to discuss it first in a wider forum (like Simple talk). There have been issues in the past with maintaining our version. --Auntof6 (talk) 05:00, 12 June 2019 (UTC)
