Why was my fucking user page deleted?[change source]

Aren't user pages supposed to say something about you? What the fuck? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tequilium (talkcontribs)

I responded on their talk page. Vermont (talk) 14:02, 21 June 2019 (UTC)

rvt: we don't use retired because it is more complex than former[change source]

Regarding your reversion of:

Who is the "we" in your statement and can you point me to where that was decided? I would like to discuss that with those who made the decision. --Gotanda (talk) 12:08, 27 June 2019 (UTC)

I am not going to go looking through all our archives for it. It was a long time ago. Retired has muliple meanings, whereas former always means a variation of something from before that no longer is. More broadly than just the word retired, we try to avoid all words that have multiple meanings that could confuse a reader. To use a different example, it is the reason we use movies on simple.wiki instead of films, because movies always mean motion pictures whereas films can mean motion pictures or camera film. Even though both words are not particularly complex. -DJSasso (talk) 12:24, 27 June 2019 (UTC)

Promoting the Lawrence, Kansas article[change source]

Hi Djsasso! I was glad to see you responded to the Lawrence, Kansas good article proposal entry a week ago. I went ahead and created a few pages for a few of the things mentioned in the article. Would you be following up on the promotion any time soon? I'd hate to sound impatient, but the 3 week deadline passed a couple days ago, and I've seen a few proposals on that page that were posted months ago with no follow up. I'm just a tad worried it would slip through the cracks.

I would just like to see what else could be improved so I can begin working on making it a VGA, or so I can really start focusing on other articles instead of craving any small update. (That's a fault of mine, not yours, but it eats me on the inside.) Thanks! ~Junedude433talk 15:29, 1 July 2019 (UTC)

There is not really much more you can do. Requires a certain amount of people to vote yes on it. But I have put a note on Simple Talk about it so hopefully that gets some more eyes on it. -DJSasso (talk) 11:36, 2 July 2019 (UTC)
I saw the note you left. Thank you. I greatly appreciate it! ~Junedude433talk 15:13, 2 July 2019 (UTC)
@Junedude433: You might fall victim to the summer as well. A lot of regular editors end up not being around as much for the summer so it could end up delayed for that reason as well. -DJSasso (talk) 15:15, 2 July 2019 (UTC)
I figure some of the other mods could look at it. There are a few other active users here that could simply be pinged, but I feel like that may be a bit intrusive and desperate-sounding. I feel like we should have at least one well-written article for each major category of things (people, cities, etc.) so new articles could use it as somewhat of a template. The lone good article we have for a city is okay, but it can be so much better. ~Junedude433talk 15:18, 2 July 2019 (UTC)

transclusion of pages[change source]

Hey Djsasso: Why are pages being transcluded into the Simple English Wikipedia? What is transclusion, anyway? Angela Maureen (talk) 22:22, 2 July 2019 (UTC)

What transclusion are you talking about? Transclusion is what happens when you put a template on a page. But I don't know of any pages that are being transcluded into Simple Wikipedia. -DJSasso (talk) 10:26, 3 July 2019 (UTC)

Possible problem user[change source]

You may already know this/have dealt with it: If the same person who wrote the Google Groups post Nigos mentions here also wrote the comment you removed from Nigos's talk page, they may be this person. BlackcurrantTea (talk) 19:56, 19 July 2019 (UTC)

You are correct; it is that person. Vermont (talk) 22:12, 19 July 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for saying so. It's not easy to guess if other people see things the same way or if they've read the same history (especially since I'm still new here). With this I thought it better to say something. BlackcurrantTea (talk) 09:29, 20 July 2019 (UTC)
