Declined QDs[change source]

I see you have declined my recent requests for QD that they just need some clean up etc. Does that includes simplification of the articles as well? Thanks, --Gotanda (talk) 23:37, 14 June 2018 (UTC)

They were mostly simple already. Remember it is perfectly acceptable to be identical to the other wiki if the text is simple (as long as attributed which I added). The QD is only for when it is complex, and they weren't complex by any stretch except maybe one or two words. -DJSasso (talk) 23:39, 14 June 2018 (UTC)

SassoBot status[change source]

The bot has stopped archiving pages since its last run on 31 May. In the meantime, I have performed a quick archival run on ST and AN to cut down on the number of threads on their main pages. Chenzw  Talk  08:50, 17 June 2018 (UTC)

SassoBot isn't automated I just run it when thing look crazy long or I think of it. ST and AN werent all that long so I probably didnt think about running it lately. --DJSasso (talk) 18:39, 17 June 2018 (UTC)

Importing pages such as June 9[change source]

I noticed that you imported June 9 from enwiki. I periodically look at these day pages to simplify the language and improve the links. A while back somebody inserted some headings to break up the long sections. Imports wipe all of that out. If you're going to be importing these, no problem, but please let me know and I won't spend any more time on them. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 22:12, 21 June 2018 (UTC)

Fon and Gun[change source]


Gun language is not part of Fon language. There is one poorly referenced statement in the English Wikipedia that says that it is part of Fon, and I planned to correct it there, too.

Ethnologue and Glottologue say that it's distinct. And yesterday I talked to an actual speaker of Fon, who told me that Gun is related, but distinct.

Do you have a strong reason to think that it's the same language, other than the fact that they are one article in the English Wikipedia? I planned to write a whole article in English, too. --Amir E. Aharoni (talk) 17:33, 4 July 2018 (UTC)

From what I understand is that it is just a dialect of the same language. But I can revert, I don't have a strong opinion on it. -DJSasso (talk) 17:34, 4 July 2018 (UTC)
Please revert. Thank you. I am going to fix it in the English Wikipedia, too. --Amir E. Aharoni (talk) 17:37, 4 July 2018 (UTC)
Cheers, and sorry about the import of the template you made as well. Looked like it was just a copy paste from en (which we often get). Didn't notice you had created it in both places or I wouldn't have imported. -DJSasso (talk) 17:38, 4 July 2018 (UTC)

Marie Émilie de Joly de Choin is incorrect.[change source]

Hello, just to let you know that your move was incorrect. You should've just left it alone. "Choin" was her father's barony. Thus a title not a name. Why complicate/trivialise things? Please move it back to it's original and correct title. (talk) 20:37, 3 August 2018 (UTC)

:Hello?! You clearly have no idea about what you are editing so might I be so bold as to suggest you leave them alone. For example I created Marie Émilie de Joly with that title because it is in fact correct. Choin was her father's title, thus not any part of her name. And please don't have a hissy fit and block me from making valid edits/creations on here as a punishment for making valid edits on here. I am in fact another human being, with feelings, shocking I know but it's true. Less is more at times.

Similarly where was the name to move Louise Marie Adélaïde de Bourbon? To add her title by marriage It was fine as it was. Like I said, less is more. (talk) 18:45, 12 August 2018 (UTC)

You have had this topic explained to you on both here an You are in fact incorrect. You are also banned from both locations. Please cease editing here. -DJSasso (talk) 13:57, 13 August 2018 (UTC)

{{icon}}[change source]

Hello Djsasso, can you have a look at this template. It is causing confusion by making many articles look like GA. I removed it from some templates but now I think updating this template might be better idea. Thanks-BRP ever 16:03, 9 August 2018 (UTC)

Not sure how that happened. But it should be working now. Will need to undo all your changes. Probably should have waited to remove but no biggy. -DJSasso (talk)
Yeah, thanks. At first I thought the problem was only in few templates but it was a bit bigger.-BRP ever 13:55, 13 August 2018 (UTC)
Sorry to bother you again but this change might be causing problem in some templates like {{Nobelprize}}, {{WHSite}}.-BRP ever 16:56, 13 August 2018 (UTC)
Oh yes I remember now...that is why I didn't update the last time and reverted. Will have to fix these. -DJSasso (talk) 01:52, 14 August 2018 (UTC)
Think I got all the ones affected. If you notice one still let me know. Or just use one of these ones as an example to convert it over to work. -DJSasso (talk) 02:14, 14 August 2018 (UTC)

Oops![change source]

Thanks for reverting my revert. I have already removed the talk page message. Don't know why I didn't realize it was a user page. Operator873talkconnect 03:33, 14 August 2018 (UTC)

Actually it looks like you beat me to it. I'll leave an apology there as well. Operator873talkconnect 03:34, 14 August 2018 (UTC)
No worries we all do stuff like that. I just happened to be watching him since I just unblocked him. -DJSasso (talk) 03:38, 14 August 2018 (UTC)

While you're around[change source]

I've noticed you importing a lot of templates lately... I can work on templates if needed, but my question is does importing templates require a PERM? Operator873talkconnect 03:43, 14 August 2018 (UTC)

Yes you have to be an admin. If you need something imported just let me know. It is possible to get it while not being an admin but as you can imagine importing can cause a whole lot of trouble so we pretty much don't give it out. I am in the process of trying to clean up our templates, they are a bit of a mess because people used to just copy paste over and often would forget templates that were needed by the template they were copy pasting over. Infoboxes/Templates have sort of become my thing. -DJSasso (talk) 03:45, 14 August 2018 (UTC)
I've noticed that. Often in fact. I don't really need a specific template imported, and I don't mean to step on any toes. But if you need any help, I'm willing and able. Otherwise, I'll be buried in Category:Deprecated parameters. Operator873talkconnect 04:07, 14 August 2018 (UTC)
Since you are working in that category. Just a little suggestion, while its quicker to just switch over/remove the parameters. I find it a good time to just bring over a fresh copy of the entire infobox at the time. In most cases the en copy is better than ours and more up to date. I know it takes a lot longer to do it that way then just running AWB through removing/changing them, in doing so it also removes the motivation for you or anyone else to just update the whole box. -DJSasso (talk) 04:11, 14 August 2018 (UTC)
That's a really good idea. I didn't think of that at all. Hmmmmm... In that case, Template:Infobox video game will be my next target. Would you mind bringing a fresh copy over? Operator873talkconnect 04:17, 14 August 2018 (UTC)
Alright I brought the most recent over. -DJSasso (talk) 04:20, 14 August 2018 (UTC)
You're a boss, boss. Thank you. Operator873talkconnect 04:21, 14 August 2018 (UTC)
Just dawned on me that I may have also been unclear. I meant a fresh copy of what is in the article. Not the template itself. (Though that is a good idea too sometimes if it is way out of date). -DJSasso (talk) 04:23, 14 August 2018 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) The problem with copying the whole thing is our infoboxes don't support the whole thing like when I tried to copy Arthurlie F.C., there was a template missing. Can you import that one too?-BRP ever 04:24, 14 August 2018 (UTC)
Weeeellllllll.... when you imported the new video game template, it fixed ALL the articles in that category with deprecated params. That's definitely the easy mode way. HAHA! Operator873talkconnect 04:27, 14 August 2018 (UTC)
Yeah that happens sometimes too lol. -DJSasso (talk) 04:28, 14 August 2018 (UTC)
Yeah that is when you will need to update our templates, or just do it in little bits. Won't always work, I was mostly just pointing out if you are editing the params anyway (which often have no visual effect) you might as well update the whole thing at the same time. I will take a look at what is needed for that FC one. -DJSasso (talk) 04:28, 14 August 2018 (UTC)

Template:Infobox person/Wikidata[change source]

Hi, Can you import this template here? BukhariSaeed (talk) 04:08, 14 August 2018 (UTC)

 Done -DJSasso (talk) 04:20, 14 August 2018 (UTC)
Can i make Infobox (as Infobox2) here? i am testing wikidata infobox, similarly we have imported to Urdu wiki.BukhariSaeed (talk) 04:34, 14 August 2018 (UTC)
Not really sure what you are asking. You want the french infobox module here? I don't really think that is a good idea as we generally try to keep our infoboxes close to for ease of maintenance with fewer editors here. -DJSasso (talk) 13:27, 14 August 2018 (UTC)

Are you still watching?[change source]

I have a pretty serious issue to report. But do not want to have the Streisand effect. Are you reachable by email? Operator873talkconnect 05:10, 14 August 2018 (UTC)

I relayed information to Vermont via IRC. Thanks! Operator873talkconnect 05:27, 14 August 2018 (UTC)
Sorry I had headed to bed. -DJSasso (talk) 13:25, 14 August 2018 (UTC)

Greetings[change source]

Hello, I noticed you moved Livingstone to Livingstone, Zambia whilst i was making changes to it. Was there any Livingstone in the search or just want to give a precise location. King regards MyPeople76 (talk) 16:18, 15 August 2018 (UTC)

There are lots of Livingstones that exist. Since it was a new article I moved it now so that links that might be brought over from English Wikipedia won't be pointing to the wrong article rather than move it later when it will be necessary. -DJSasso (talk) 16:20, 15 August 2018 (UTC)
