Question for you[change source]

Hey what is the typical sense of having pages like list of nbc shows, list of HBO shows, etc.? I see them coming up more now on SEWP but not sure if they can be tagged for anything. What advice can you give? PotsdamLamb (talk) 05:06, 24 February 2021 (UTC)

I'm not sure - I suggest asking at simple talk instead, I'm not the most familiar with the relevant rules --DannyS712 (talk) 05:10, 24 February 2021 (UTC)
Ok thanks! PotsdamLamb (talk) 05:30, 24 February 2021 (UTC)

Anjum Lucknowi[change source]

Hi DannyS712, Not sure how to go about this on Simple English I just saw you name as an active admin and I think I have seen you around En Wiki. The above article has been re-created under many titles on English Wiki and is now salted. There is an SPI involving the editors who have edited that article here (there is long archive of previous socks all about the same topic) Can you take a peek in case any action is needed here JW 1961 Talk 20:07, 17 March 2021 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know - there is an ongoing discussion at Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/2021/Anjum Lucknowi DannyS712 (talk) 22:31, 17 March 2021 (UTC)

Request[change source]

Hi DannyS712, Would it be possible for you to make a userscript for me if it's okay? Thanks --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 21:48, 4 April 2021 (UTC)

@つがる maybe, it depends on what userscript you want. I probably won't have time the next few days anyway, but if you tell me what you want now I can start thinking about it DannyS712 (talk) 22:01, 4 April 2021 (UTC)
It has to do with Twinkle's Rfd nominating module. I wanted a script to be added, where it will log the Rfd request in one of my userpages. But I'm not sure if this is very possible to do without affecting the entire Twinkle Interface. --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 22:05, 4 April 2021 (UTC)
The enwiki version of Twinkle already does this. Instead of spending time developing ours, we should update ours based on the latest enwiki version (with all of the needed simplewiki changes includes) - its on my long-term TODO list. For now, I don't think doing this as a user script is a good idea, so sorry, but no --DannyS712 (talk) 22:07, 4 April 2021 (UTC)
Hi, DannyS712. That's fine. I'll just do it manually then. Thank you for your time. :) --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 22:16, 4 April 2021 (UTC)

Cream of Wheat[change source]

Dear DannyS712,

I guess I am now an admin! Or, the more likely explanation is what you said about edit conflict,


Yaakov W.Yaakov Wa. (talk) 22:30, 22 April 2021 (UTC)

@Yaakov Wa.: Why would you think you became an admin? Since the edit wasn't made with Twinkle, you should have gotten a notice telling you that the article was deleted while you were edited, and asking to confirm if you wanted to recreate the page --DannyS712 (talk) 22:31, 22 April 2021 (UTC)
Dear Danny,
Just a joke. Thanks for your explanation!

Block needed[change source] has been VIPd but nobody has responded to it. Please could you block them for repeated edit warring? C4Bomb2024 Talk 22:59, 25 May 2021 (UTC)

Abuse filter[change source]

Hi Danny. I notice you've done some adjustments to filter 88 recently, and I think it is causing some collateral damage (see ). I can't see the abuse filter log for obvious reasons but the user definitely isn't acting like the LTA the abuse filter is intending to block. Can you please take a look? Thanks! --Ferien (talk) 21:01, 29 June 2021 (UTC)

@Ferien:  Done, though those should not have been tripping the filter in the first place... thanks. @Durantnba: I'm sorry your edits were not going through, we were dealing with a very persistent vandal earlier and the filter was slightly broader than it should have been. --DannyS712 (talk) 00:48, 30 June 2021 (UTC)
No problem, thanks Danny and Ferien. Durantnba (talk) 01:18, 30 June 2021 (UTC)

Point of interest[change source]

  • One can't block an IP indefinitely even if it edits under an unregistered name. "My test tick all's keep going up and down" is an unregistered IP. He's not going to use that moniker a second time, so give him a week or a month as an IP. Macdonald-ross (talk) 12:50, 1 July 2021 (UTC)
@Macdonald-ross: um, what? You can block an IP indefinitely, though you shouldn't, but thats not what I did - I blocked the registered account indefinitely. I'm not a CU, so I don't know what the underlying ip is to block that --DannyS712 (talk) 12:54, 1 July 2021 (UTC)
Neither am I! If you press on the label 'User page' for such people it will say "WP does not have a user page with this name". That means he's an IP using a name as a cover. If you block the IP it will follow him even if he changes his pseudonym. Admittedly, this is limited by the existence of floating IPs, but they are not (I hope!) available in schools! Macdonald-ross (talk) 13:16, 1 July 2021 (UTC)
@Macdonald-ross: But I can't block the IP, since I don't know what it is. "Wikipedia does not yet have a user page with this name." just means they didn't create a user page, and has nothing to do with what ip is being used - all accounts are really IPs using a name as a cover. --DannyS712 (talk) 13:19, 1 July 2021 (UTC)
