Question regarding the use of 'Japan Stub'[change source]

On the article daimyo, there is a use of the 'Japan Stub', however this article is taking about people, so I'm a bit confused as to whether this stub tag should be used. Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 00:38, 9 April 2021 (UTC)

That stub is for anything related to Japan. That article is about rulers in Japan. -Djsasso (talk) 10:48, 9 April 2021 (UTC)
I thought it cannot be used for people --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 20:18, 10 April 2021 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) I'm assuming the people exception is for biographies of living or dead people instead of rulers from hundreds of years ago, who weren't really a person/group of people. For example, duke is a role, not a person.--Belwine (talk) 20:26, 10 April 2021 (UTC)
True, True. I was not think properly ;P --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 20:31, 10 April 2021 (UTC)
If you are referring to the comment on Wikipedia:Simple Stub Project, it just says to not use it on Japan Sports Biographies because there is a specific stub for it. Any other is fine. -Djsasso (talk) 12:46, 14 April 2021 (UTC)
Oh, Twinkle was the one which said Japan-Stub is not for people --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 01:44, 15 April 2021 (UTC)
Likely on there like that because we typically used to say only use one or two stubs on a page and Template:bio-stub existed which would likely get worked on more than japan stub. But yeah don't worry about that. To be honest stubs are mostly deprecated anyway so aren't worth worrying about. -Djsasso (talk) 14:39, 15 April 2021 (UTC)

Block of User:John VIII[change source]

Hello Djsasso.

I am currently typing this from an alt since I lost the password to appeal on my main.

The reason I used 2 accounts is because I forgot both passwords and kept them logged in with John VIII on mobile and MartinLutheran on PC, I did not intend to break the rules of the site and I wanted to be a constructive editor, however I was blocked and now I understand why, if I’m ever unbanned I will only use 1 of the accounts and stop using the other to follow the rules.

~ John VIII TheReligiousPope (talk) 06:09, 16 April 2021 (UTC)

Except I don't believe that since it appears you have been vandalizing as an IP editor as well. -Djsasso (talk) 11:10, 16 April 2021 (UTC)

Darubrub (Let me know) 13:55, 16 April 2021 (UTC)

Nvm IWI did it anyway. Darubrub (Let me know) 15:50, 16 April 2021 (UTC)
Really it shouldn't have been deleted as talk pages don't get deleted, though since it was having a revert war between you and IPs then I guess it doesn't really matter. -Djsasso (talk) 15:52, 16 April 2021 (UTC)
It could just be recreated with the header. Darubrub (Let me know) 15:54, 16 April 2021 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) I can't see anything in the Wikipedia:Deletion policy that says that. Whilst Wikipedia:Talk page says "Do not delete discussions", these are not discussions about improving the article, they are just spam/vandalism. --Ferien (talk) 15:56, 16 April 2021 (UTC)
Once you switched it to having a talk page header on it, it was edited by someone other than the vandal and thus a valid talk page. -Djsasso (talk) 15:57, 16 April 2021 (UTC)
So if I did not replace the content with the talk page header, then it would be eligible for deletion, correct? --Ferien (talk) 15:59, 16 April 2021 (UTC)
Yes, but it still likely wouldn't be. The whole reason we switch to the talk page header on Simple Wikipedia on talk pages that are vandalized are so admins don't have to delete them. While you won't find that codified it is how we typically operate. -Djsasso (talk) 16:00, 16 April 2021 (UTC)
Hmm, ok, I disagree with that idea because as there is no point of the page being there, it just has the talk header and the only thing happening on the page is an edit war. Maybe we need to reconsider how we work with talk pages. I think that deleting them is a lot better because the talk page is likely not going to be used for anything else. --Ferien (talk) 16:13, 16 April 2021 (UTC)
There was a community discussion about it a long time ago that the consensus of was that talk page headers are more helpful than a note that the talk page had been deleted. -Djsasso (talk) 16:14, 16 April 2021 (UTC)
I deleted it because it ends disruption and there is no editorial reason to keep purely vandalism content. With this particular vandal, it seems to prevent having to protect the page and have a massive edit war that can last months. I stand by my action from this standpoint; yes ordinary vandalism can just be replaced with a header. --IWI (talk) 22:20, 22 April 2021 (UTC)

When you removed overtagging...[change source]

You should've kept No sources. There are literally no sources. But thank you for removing most of the tags. SoyokoAnis - talk 14:42, 16 April 2021 (UTC)

I was talking about Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc. SoyokoAnis - talk 14:44, 16 April 2021 (UTC)
Yes that one could go back I guess. I didn't notice it was there. But I think 9 different tags on it is ridiculous. Generally on this wiki we try to keep the tags to the minimum as they tend to harm the wiki more than they help in that things are sometimes obvious that don't need a tag telling you so the tag itself becomes an issue on the page. -Djsasso (talk) 15:43, 16 April 2021 (UTC)
Moot now as there are a number of sources on it now. -Djsasso (talk) 16:09, 16 April 2021 (UTC)
Okay. Thanks, again. SoyokoAnis - talk 17:23, 17 April 2021 (UTC)

IPs[change source]

Question: How does he makes the creation of stubs via IP address automated? Is it like a script? Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 20:28, 18 April 2021 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) @つがる: You might want to see Category:Cities in Iowa and the amount of pages that Synergy created. That user seemed to make about 3 per minute with AWB, so making a script likely isn't too difficult. --Ferien (talk) 20:34, 18 April 2021 (UTC)
But why as a script on many IPs as opposed to an account? --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 20:36, 18 April 2021 (UTC)
@つがる: I suppose as the user likely behind it has patroller rights, those articles are not patrollable. So he is just making the articles on IPs so they aren't patrolled, unless he is patrolling them afterwards, which would be strange. --Ferien (talk) 20:38, 18 April 2021 (UTC)
I think he just patrolling them afterwards anyways, see the notice on his talkpage from Auntof6. However, I don't 100% know for sure. I just find it strange they use mutiple IPs. There could come a case where there is a legit person on the IP making articles, and we end up confusing them with a bot... --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 20:40, 18 April 2021 (UTC)
I don't remember checking, but I remember looking back in the archives and people were saying that all these IPs were in the same /64 range. So maybe this is not purposeful, /64 ranges generally are the same person per w:WP:/64 --Ferien (talk) 20:43, 18 April 2021 (UTC)

True. But Chenzw once did block a whole range, but the IP's still created articles --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 20:47, 18 April 2021 (UTC)

Oh, Ferien Do you know what this edit summary (first revision of the page) is saying? I don't get what it means --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 21:14, 24 April 2021 (UTC)
Neither do I. Maybe it is saying "help the IP make commune articles"? Not sure though... --Ferien (talk) 21:17, 24 April 2021 (UTC)

Vector Skin Rollout[change source]

I dislike the new vector skin design. 2 questions here: 1) When will it rollout here 2) If it does rollout, how can I go back to the old vector skin? Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 00:57, 21 April 2021 (UTC)

Likely whenever someone wants to bring it here. Which likely won't be any time soon as we rarely update the skins. As for how you switch back, you wouldn't be able via Wikipedia itself. Would likely have to use a browser plugin that allows you to mess with page layouts. -Djsasso (talk) 15:52, 21 April 2021 (UTC)
Oh, I asked Chenzw before, but he said he was not aware of the feature being there, it was the 'skin switcher' feature to the right menu bar. What happened to the skin switcher menu? --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 01:54, 26 April 2021 (UTC)
I don't recall there ever being a skin switcher menu other than in your preferences. At least not in vector which I use. -Djsasso (talk) 13:45, 26 April 2021 (UTC)

Your username[change source]

Question, how come when I type in User:DJSasso in the search box it will take me to your userpage, but when I ping you as DJSasso, it gives a red link? Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 22:02, 22 April 2021 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) @つがる: When searching for a page, the software is tolerant of differences in case. The pings require exact case. It's different software. --Auntof6 (talk) 02:18, 23 April 2021 (UTC)
Ohhh, makes sense now. --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 02:29, 23 April 2021 (UTC)

AWB[change source]

Is it as hard to use as it looks? Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 01:23, 28 April 2021 (UTC)

It can be. -Djsasso (talk) 01:23, 28 April 2021 (UTC)
What can you do on it? Does it need to be a only for a specific task of things? (like cat work) --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 01:34, 28 April 2021 (UTC)
Generally we only use if for very specific tasks. Right now I am just trying to fix something and just using adding categories as a way to try and fix some caching that refuses to fix itself. -Djsasso (talk) 01:37, 28 April 2021 (UTC)
Sorry to disrupt you again, but I am assuming AWB gives you a notification that I left a message on your talkpage and any pings, etc? --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 01:39, 28 April 2021 (UTC)
Yes it does. -Djsasso (talk) 01:41, 28 April 2021 (UTC)

Boston Bruins Ubox?[change source]

Hey, DJSasso, I was sorta bored in class and I came across your calgary flames userbox, and the other hockey related userboxes, I'm wondering if you have a Boston Bruins one, cause I like their team lol (Don't hate me haha) Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 23:48, 29 April 2021 (UTC)

RfA Statement[change source]

Hi - I wanted to find out more about your statement with examples, please. You stated "Oppose This user does not at all understand how this wiki works and frequently has to have their edits fixed. From my view they are a very long way off from being an admin. " - Can you please explain:

*How I do not understand at all how this wiki works

*That I frequently have to have my edits fix?

99% of my edits do not need fixing and some I reverted myself as I introduced an error or was trying to fix an error and it didn't work out.

Please ping me or TB me. Also, you can archive my RfA since I withdrew. Thanks! PotsdamLamb (talk) 18:45, 10 May 2021 (UTC)
