Welcome![change source]

Some cookies to welcome you! Face-smile.svg

Welcome to Wikipedia, Darubrub! I'm Hellothere4 and an active editor here. Thank you for your changes. I just wanted to say hi and welcome you to Wikipedia! If you have any questions check out Wikipedia:Questions, or send me a message on my talk page. I like to help new people, so don't be afraid to leave a message! I hope you like Wikipedia and decide to stay. Here are some pages that you might find helpful:

Also, when you post on talk pages you should sign your name using four tildes (~~~~); that should automatically produce your username and the date after your post. I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Hellothere4 (talk) 01:28, 26 February 2021 (UTC)

Twinkle[change source]

You may want to consider using Twinkle to make RfDs, it can be a lot quicker than doing it manually. --Belwine (talk) 18:05, 5 April 2021 (UTC)

If you need any help using it let me know :) --Belwine (talk) 18:38, 5 April 2021 (UTC)

Where to report vandalism[change source]

Hello! Thank you for reporting vandalism on the admins' noticeboard. In the future, you should report it on vandalism in progress. Thanks, --Belwine (talk) 18:43, 6 April 2021 (UTC)

I reverted the edit(s), but thanks for letting me know. Darubrub (talk) 18:44, 6 April 2021 (UTC)

Non-admin replies at WP:VIP[change source]

Please wait a bit after a report at VIP has been taken care of before you comment that it's done. If the admin is trying to add a reply, you can cause an edit conflict. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 13:39, 12 April 2021 (UTC)

G10 vs other criteria[change source]

Just so you know, quick deletion requests are usually dealt with all at the same time. If you mark a page as G10, it will not get dealt with any quicker than a page marked as G3, or G1, or any other criteria. All of them go to CAT:QD, where administrators will delete them. --Belwine (talk) 18:35, 12 April 2021 (UTC)

Tagging articles[change source]

Hello. I noticed you have been tagging articles with issues recently. Please try and solve these issues yourself instead of tagging them. These tags often stay on for years, because we are quite a small community here at simple, and it just makes the article look worse before it (maybe? eventually?) is solved. --Belwine (talk) 13:34, 13 April 2021 (UTC)

You've got mail![change source]

Mail-message-new.svg
Hello, Darubrub. Check your email – you have got mail!
Message added 18:13, 13 April 2021 (UTC). You can take off this notice at any time by removing the {{You've got mail}} or {{YGM}} template.

--Belwine (talk) 18:13, 13 April 2021 (UTC)

I have read the message, and understood some vandals might be better dealt with privately. Darubrub (Let me know) 18:17, 13 April 2021 (UTC)

Quick deletion of Template:Cs-stub[change source]

Ambox deletion.png

The page you wrote, Template:Cs-stub, has been selected for quick deletion. If you think this page should be kept, please add {{wait}} below the line {{QD}} and say why on the talk page. If the page is already gone, but you think this was an error, you can ask for it to be undeleted. You can find more information about the reason here. --Belwine (talk) 18:31, 13 April 2021 (UTC)

Generally, stub types are usually decided by the Simple Stub Project. We don't have many stub types, and new ones must be agreed on by the community. You can use the {{technology-stub}} for articles involving computer science. --Belwine (talk) 18:33, 13 April 2021 (UTC)

Welcoming[change source]

Hi there! I saw you welcomed an IP address with a user welcome. Firstly, if you are welcoming an IP you should use the IP welcome rather than the regular welcome. Also, I think the general policy of Simple wiki is to not use the welcome template for IPs at all or users unless they've made a few helpful changes. Might just be something worth bearing in mind! Milo, Talk, Contribs 16:41, 15 April 2021 (UTC)

Similar case[change source]

You are banned from appealing unblock request. It seems like that you need to wait for 6 months at least before request to unblock after you are blocked. Repetitive unblock request will lead to unnotice of the admins, I think so! BTW, I am like you. And, as User:Ferien suggest me, I have to wait for 6 months but still I ain't sure whether I will get unblock or not! Haoreima (talk) 07:22, 16 April 2021 (UTC)

I'm allowed to make a appeal again in August to UTRS or September to ArbCom. I'm not sure if there is a difference between a duck block and a check user block. Darubrub (Let me know) 12:27, 16 April 2021 (UTC)

Last warnings[change source]

Please do not give warnings after last warnings. It makes it look like the last warnings don't mean anything. As RacoonyRE's Huggle detected no lvl 4 warnings last, it is now warning from lvl 1 again (see here... Huggle gives warnings automatically) --Ferien (talk) 18:36, 16 April 2021 (UTC)

Budgam district[change source]

Hello can you please describe why did you reverted my edit on Budgam District? –Hulgedtalk⟩ 15:41, 19 April 2021 (UTC)

I was going to add a source, but I reverted since I need a better source that is on-topic. Darubrub (Let me know) 15:41, 19 April 2021 (UTC)
I don't really see the point in removing {{no sources}} templates when you are going to add a source because something like this can happen and you can just remove the template when you add your source. --Ferien (talk) 15:48, 19 April 2021 (UTC)

Talk headers[change source]

Please do not create talk pages, like you did on Talk:JPEG just to add a talk header. Talk pages must be created with discussion. --Ferien (talk) 17:42, 21 April 2021 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) Originally it had a discussion but he reverted himself by putting the header up. -Djsasso (talk) 17:44, 21 April 2021 (UTC)
Yes, but the page was created with {{talk header}}. At least in my opinion, talk pages should be created with discussion on it. And the talk header does not have to be on every talk page. --Ferien (talk) 17:47, 21 April 2021 (UTC)
The comment was added within a minute, clearly they intended to have a comment on it and perhaps accidentally hit publish before they did, who knows. Sometimes you have to use a little common sense. If they had only added the header and never put something on again then it would be completely fine to comment about it but that was clearly not the case here. There is no rule that they couldn't have the comment on it in a second edit. All I am saying is go a little easy. -Djsasso (talk) 18:40, 21 April 2021 (UTC)
It is not a big deal now that there is discussion, yes, it is just advice for the future if Darubrub was creating the talkpage just for the header. --Ferien (talk) 18:47, 21 April 2021 (UTC)
Some talk pages are created with the translated-page template. Darubrub (Let me know) 12:03, 23 April 2021 (UTC)
That is an exception to the rule. Same with rfd keep templates and did you knows and GAs and VGA nominations, they go on the talk pages because there's nowhere else it can really go. --Ferien (talk) 12:08, 23 April 2021 (UTC)

Editing pages and talk pages[change source]

So I am not quite sure what it is you are attempting to do on pages. Such as The talk page of Dormant Volcano. You didn't add a heading and it looks like you copied/pasted another users comments, however, you forgot everything in between to give it meaning. Can you correct this please? PotsdamLamb (talk) 15:08, 23 April 2021 (UTC)

I'm not sure what you mean copy/paste another comment, I just added a untitled header. Darubrub (Let me know) 15:10, 23 April 2021 (UTC)
See https://simple.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Talk:Dormant_volcano&action=history (You copied the exact same line an admin wrote). PotsdamLamb (talk) 15:13, 23 April 2021 (UTC)
I looked through the diffs and no one added a header, just adding and messing with the unsigned template. Darubrub (Let me know) 15:14, 23 April 2021 (UTC)
The very first history entry states Created page with "I would add that the dormant volcanoes aren’t active all the time and that there one of the least popular volcanoes." by an IP editor. You should not be messing with templates on articles, if you want to mess with them, please use the sandbox or create your own page. Also, please ping me by adding <nowiki>@PotsdamLamb: in your replies so I can be alerted you replied. PotsdamLamb (talk) 15:22, 23 April 2021 (UTC)
@PotsdamLamb:, my diff as you see here only had the header added and left the unsigned comment intact. Darubrub (Let me know) 15:24, 23 April 2021 (UTC)
I am aware of that, however, you stripped the actual date and time it was posted by doing that. It would help if you were not refactoring others' comments or repasting them. If you want it to appear again, you will need to do a rollback. PotsdamLamb (talk) 15:28, 23 April 2021 (UTC)
@PotsdamLamb:, thats funny. The previous diffs, such as this one, does not show the date either. Darubrub (Let me know) 15:29, 23 April 2021 (UTC)
Took care of it. PotsdamLamb (talk) 15:35, 23 April 2021 (UTC)

A Barnstar for You![change source]

Barnstar of Reversion Hires.png The Anti-Vandalism Barnstar
This is for all the anti-vandalism work you have been doing recently! It is recognised and very much appreciated. Keep it up :) --Ferien (talk) 19:48, 23 April 2021 (UTC)

question[change source]

Why is there this Wikipedia? What can you do with it? I was looking at some pages and all of them have little text. Why what?--Lentoster (talk) 22:46, 26 April 2021 (UTC)

I don’t get your question @Lentoster:. Darubrub (Let me know) 23:46, 26 April 2021 (UTC)

another editor has already explained. thank you Lentoster (talk) 01:17, 27 April 2021 (UTC)

Removing your edit[change source]

Sorry I reverted your edit. I thought I’d removed the vandalism. RPBG 💬 🖊 17:26, 27 April 2021 (UTC)

It's okay. just WP:DENY. Darubrub (Let me know) 17:27, 27 April 2021 (UTC)

Ok. I’ve reported the vandal a few times, but now I’ve decided to deny recognition. Thanks. RPBG 💬 🖊 17:30, 27 April 2021 (UTC)

Edit to Boris Johnson[change source]

Damnit, sorry I reverted the edit. I like to respond to vandalism when I see it in the blink of an eye. Sorry about that. RPBG 💬 🖊 17:59, 28 April 2021 (UTC)

Ok then! Again, WP:DENY because ducky. Darubrub (Let me know) 18:00, 28 April 2021 (UTC)

April 2021[change source]

Hello! Thank you for creating Category:Congressional districts of New Hampshire. However, we normally need at least three pages in a category before it is created. Because categories are a way to group together similar articles, there is no need to create a new category for just one or two articles. If you think there might be more pages to add to the new category, please add them now. Thank you. Auntof6 (talk) 12:05, 29 April 2021 (UTC)

Information.svg Please do not make bad pages, such as New Hampshire's 3rd congressional district. Doing so is against our rules. If you would like to test, please use the sandbox. Thank you. Android 2113853211 (talk) 12:31, 29 April 2021 (UTC)

Please do not QD my sandbox pages as they are in progress work pages[change source]

My sandbox pages are in use as I am developing articles. I just moved the mainspace article and was going to shortly fix the redirect. This is in my userspace and within policy. Please do not request QD without knowing the situation. Thank you. Desertborn (talk) 13:12, 29 April 2021 (UTC)

Ok, no objections. I would usually do that for me when I move my drafts to mainspace. Darubrub (Let me know) 13:13, 29 April 2021 (UTC)
If that is needed I can take care of it myself. It had only been a few seconds since the move, so no need for you to help. But I appreciate the desire to be helpful. Desertborn (talk) 13:15, 29 April 2021 (UTC)


Unitled[change source]

Sorry I did it again :( RPBG 💬 🖊 17:40, 29 April 2021 (UTC)

Ok. Try to see who did it and what did they change. I already requested a global block on the steward requests. Darubrub (Let me know) 17:41, 29 April 2021 (UTC)

changing letter from lower case into capital[change source]

Why was letter "b" in biology changed to the capital letter? It's in the biology stub in Hypoglycemia. Angela Kate Maureen 16:15, 4 May 2021 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) @Tropical Storm Angela: It's probably visual editor. --Ferien (talk) 16:17, 4 May 2021 (UTC)

OK[change source]

Got your summary message, shall do PotsdamLamb (talk) 14:55, 5 May 2021 (UTC)

Unblock requests[change source]

Thanks for wanting to help, but please leave unblock requests for the admins to handle, even if they're clearly in bad faith. There are a couple of reasons for this. First, if an admin sees that a user is creating bad unblock requests, they might choose to take some additional action, such as removing talk page access or maybe extending the block. If such requests get removed, we might not see them.

Second, when an unblock request is removed by a non-admin, it can cause hard feelings toward the user who removes it. It's better not to provoke the blocked user. Let the admins deal with it; it's part of our job. Thanks! --Auntof6 (talk) 14:17, 9 May 2021 (UTC)

Not sure about hard feelings towards a LTA, but ok. Darubrub (Let me know) 14:18, 9 May 2021 (UTC)

QD templates[change source]

I have changed from G2 to G7 in Effects of london explosion. G7 is recommended for blank pages. Android 2113853211 (talk) 11:41, 10 May 2021 (UTC)

G7 only applies if the author blanks. it can be a test page though if they create and blank. How you tag is up to you. --Ferien (talk) 12:00, 10 May 2021 (UTC)

QD Tags[change source]

As a reminder, just because it can possibly be spam, does not mean it is. You need to have a valid reason to tag it and the person who tagged it with only 11 edits made up their own criteria which is why I reverted it and put a note on their talk page. I noticed you then went and gave it a proper tagging so I appreciate that. PotsdamLamb (talk) 15:37, 12 May 2021 (UTC)

Tornado Prepardness[change source]

Hey wanted to let you know an IP created a very similar page that I put in for QD for what wiki is not Tornado preparedness now I see a signed-in user who literally just created their account has done pretty much the same article Tornado safety. Up to you, but the redirect should be removed, and the page QDd under A2. PotsdamLamb (talk) 17:35, 12 May 2021 (UTC)

Thank you for letting me know that it is an SPA's work, but I don't think I will remove the redirect. Feel free to discuss with others if the redirect should be removed in the talk page. Darubrub (Let me know) 17:37, 12 May 2021 (UTC)

I added sime suggestions as to images, to show the problem I have. see Talk:Female bodybuilding--Eptalon (talk) 15:56, 13 May 2021 (UTC)

How much RAM is right for you?[change source]

You need at least 512 MB RAM to load Wikipedia properly, as 128 or 256 MB can be slow. For example, Nintendo 3DS (128 MB RAM) takes 20-30 secs to load, while Vodafone smart first 7 smartphone (512 MB) takes just 4 secs to load. 79.67.17.238 (talk) 12:52, 14 May 2021 (UTC)

I have 4GB of RAM in the computer I am using and 16GB of RAM in my other PC. Darubrub (Let me know) 12:53, 14 May 2021 (UTC)
@Darubrub This will take 3 and 2.5 secs respectively to load Wikipedia, as RAM above 512 MB have almost no effect in performance. 79.67.17.238 (talk) 12:58, 14 May 2021 (UTC)
@79.67.17.238: I know, but I have extra RAM for some off-wiki tasks. Darubrub (Let me know) 13:00, 14 May 2021 (UTC)
@Darubrub: Is 512 MB enough for you? 79.67.17.238 (talk) 13:06, 14 May 2021 (UTC)
@79.67.17.238: It is not enough for me since some applications and games I use require/recommend more RAM to run. 4GB is just good enough for basic tasks and 16GB is just enough for some games. Darubrub (Let me know) 13:07, 14 May 2021 (UTC)
Could just download more RAM. --Derpdart56 (talk) 13:10, 14 May 2021 (UTC)
@Derpdart56: I already have enough RAM on my gaming PC and my basic tasks labtop. Darubrub (Let me know) 13:11, 14 May 2021 (UTC)
I'm joking, you can't download RAM. --Derpdart56 (talk) 13:14, 14 May 2021 (UTC)
@Darubrub 512MB, however, is enough for basic games. 79.67.17.238 (talk) 13:18, 14 May 2021 (UTC)
@79.67.17.238: I am not sure about that. But yeah, RAM is not as important as the GPU for games. Darubrub (Let me know) 13:20, 14 May 2021 (UTC)

Hiii sir[change source]

Can you please remove freaktofit.com from the blacklist and revert back his amendment. They only added Impotant and relevent links. Please let me know. Uttamsww222 (talk) 10:34, 15 May 2021 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) @Uttamsww222: which "blacklist" did Darubrub add that website to, exactly...? Unless I'm mistaken, only administrators can add websites to the local or global spam blacklists. --Ferien (talk) 10:36, 15 May 2021 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) @Uttamsww222: - I am in full agreement with the decision to place this website on a blacklist so it can no longer be put into an article. Not just yourself, but numerous people have started adding this to all sorts of articles (pretty much anything that has "health" in it). This is seen as promoting spam and advertising as it is a blog not an official source like Webmd or Scripps Hospital. PotsdamLamb (talk) 12:58, 17 May 2021 (UTC)
As already said, I am not an administrator, and the site is not blacklisted even though I support such action. Darubrub (Let me know) 12:59, 17 May 2021 (UTC)

How fast CPU is right for you?[change source]

I recommend a CPU with at least 2 cores and 1.0 GHz. My laptop has a 1.1 Ghz Intel Celeron with 2 cores. IOS 128256384512 (talk) 13:58, 17 May 2021 (UTC)

I only know my gaming PC's CPU, which is from AMD. Darubrub (Let me know) 13:59, 17 May 2021 (UTC)
@Darubrub: I have a fx-991EX calculator which has 25 MHz (0.025 GHz) single-core CPU, which is too slow to load Wikipedia. IOS 128256384512 (talk) 14:04, 17 May 2021 (UTC)
@IOS 128256384512: I am not sure what calculators have to do with Wikipedia. Phones are, but not sure about that. Darubrub (Let me know) 14:06, 17 May 2021 (UTC)
@Darubrub: CPUs less than 1 GHz makes Wiki loading times slow. IOS 128256384512 (talk) 14:08, 17 May 2021 (UTC)
@IOS 128256384512: We have the basic requirements for a CPU. What does this have to do with the fx-991EX calculator? Darubrub (Let me know) 14:10, 17 May 2021 (UTC)

512 MB vs 768 MB[change source]

Vodafone smart first 7 smartphone has 512 MB (1x512 MB) RAM, whereas Apple Watch Series 3 has 768 MB (3x256 MB). The latter loads Wikipedia silghtly slower. 79.67.17.238 (talk) 16:09, 18 May 2021 (UTC)
