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. 89.240.168.199 (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. 79.75.1.184 (talk) 18:45, 12 August 2018 (UTC)

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


Banned because I'm right no doubt? Bully. 79.75.1.184 (talk) 09:49, 18 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 en.wiki 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)

Template:Nobelprize[change source]

I undid your update of this template because it was no longer working correctly. Specifically, it was putting the icon where the template was coded instead of at the top of the page, and it was no longer adding the appropriate Nobel Prize category. --Auntof6 (talk) 11:18, 18 August 2018 (UTC)

Wierd I made that exact change you did after that other change....not sure why it was missing. Must not have hit publish or something, I did change all the others.... -DJSasso (talk) 19:29, 18 August 2018 (UTC)

Ugh, yet AGAIN you've ruined things.[change source]

You moved Jeanne Baptiste d'Albert to Jeanne Baptiste d'Albert de Luynes? IF you had ANY idea what you were doing, you'd know that Luynes was actually a title (a dukedom) and the family name was "d'Albret (having come to France with the entourage of Catherine de' Medici and their surname was Gallicised as such. It was created that way to avoid this problem in the first place but people like you are the ones that ruin it for everyone else. Do some research. For the love of god, move it back to it's correct name. 79.75.1.184 (talk) 19:06, 25 August 2018 (UTC)

Perhaps you should do some research and realize how things are named on English and Simple English Wiki. -DJSasso (talk) 15:07, 27 August 2018 (UTC)

Infobox German Location[change source]

Hi there Djsasso, I was just wondering what you were doing to all the pages using Template:Infobox German location, since I too have been going through them (To replace old lat and long parameters with coord - are you doing this or something else)? I have also noticed that you have removed the population parameter from some pages: is this now being done automatically? Sorry for asking so many questions, but I would rather know about any changes so that I can make sure to not muck up any new pages I create using that infobox, Milo, Talk, Contribs 16:49, 27 August 2018 (UTC)

Those parameters have been automatically done for a long time. I am just updating the infoboxes to the newest information for those that don't happen automatically. -DJSasso (talk) 16:51, 27 August 2018 (UTC)
Ah ok: I never realised! Sorry to ask more questions but a)Is it only population which updates automatically?, and b)I don't suppose there is a quicker way to replace depreceated lat and long parameters with coord than simply typing it out or copying it from enwiki? Thanks so much, Milo, Talk, Contribs 16:54, 27 August 2018 (UTC)
I think so, I would have to through the code. Best way to update is to copy it over. The coords are so varied page by page that it is hard to do it any other way without a lot of manual intervention anyway. -DJSasso (talk) 16:56, 27 August 2018 (UTC)
No worries about going through the code: I'm going to go and update the pages that I have made using that template at any rate. And with the coords I've literally been going through the what links here list to find them, so I'll stick with that I guess! Thanks so much for your help, Milo, Talk, Contribs 16:58, 27 August 2018 (UTC)
I hate to be so hopeless but would you mind having a look at Altusried? I tried removing the population but it doesn't seem to be working automatically, so I undid it? Milo, Talk, Contribs 17:05, 27 August 2018 (UTC)

Just to check: are you planning on using the same categorizing system as on enwiki for German locations? Otherwise I see no reason to remove the categories already on pages I have created? Thanks, Milo, Talk, Contribs 17:43, 27 August 2018 (UTC)

Yes as they were categorized down to too detailed a level, so I am fixing them back to where they used to be which matches en.wiki. -DJSasso (talk) 17:44, 27 August 2018 (UTC)
Oh ok: sorry for making it too detailed! I'll use the enwiki system from now on. Sorry for pestering you so much, Milo, Talk, Contribs 17:46, 27 August 2018 (UTC)

Cross project linking:[change source]

I was browsing through Special:WantedPages and saw that international was fairly high, and I was trying to work out a way to link to the wiktionary page, since that entry clearly works. However it occurs to me that I have never seen an example of that or read anything about it, and since you have just deleted the redirect (which to be fair I was in the process of QD:G7ing), I was wondering what the policy is on linking to wiktionary? Milo, Talk, Contribs 16:57, 28 August 2018 (UTC)

You can link in the wiktionary page itself, but we don't make redirects because that would discourage the creation of a local article. -DJSasso (talk) 16:59, 28 August 2018 (UTC)
Ah I see: and I've noticed that you've imported it from en.wiki anyhow. Sorry for bothering you so much! Milo, Talk, Contribs 17:00, 28 August 2018 (UTC)
No worries, I only imported it because I see its been vandalized many many times. So I figured I might as well create a local copy to stop it from happening again and again. -DJSasso (talk) 17:01, 28 August 2018 (UTC)

SassoBot[change source]

Hi, Dj. Would it be possible to get a SassoBot run to archive talk pages? It looks like the bot hasn't made any edits in a bit over a month. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 21:31, 8 October 2018 (UTC)

Yeah I can probably give it a go when I get home tonight. -DJSasso (talk) 10:43, 10 October 2018 (UTC)
Sounds good, thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 12:24, 10 October 2018 (UTC)

Kerry Newell[change source]

Could you please give me the copy/paste of the Kerry Newell article, please? I need it! 212.50.184.130 (talk) 14:04, 15 October 2018 (UTC)

What do you need it for? -DJSasso (talk) 14:05, 15 October 2018 (UTC)

Some other website. Have you checked her website? http://www.kerrynewell.com/ She is now famous and popular. She deserves some credit and fame. Could you at least just keep it on here? She wants a page on here. $hadowBolt (talk) 14:18, 15 October 2018 (UTC)

You should keep it on here, because they were reliable references. It makes her notable. $hadowBolt (talk) 14:19, 15 October 2018 (UTC)

Everything on the page came from her own webpage, it was clearly intended to be promotional for her. You will need to find independent sources on her to meet WP:GNG in order to create an article about her on this wiki. -DJSasso (talk) 14:30, 15 October 2018 (UTC)

Robert Mugabe[change source]

Robert Mugabe has died. Look! https://steemit.com/politics/@arnoldtwiston/zimbabwe-s-former-president-robert-mugabe-dies-at-94-00037150f5d78 212.67.119.245 (talk) 11:41, 16 October 2018 (UTC)

That is a fake news article. -DJSasso (talk) 11:44, 16 October 2018 (UTC

Really? Oh sorry! I wasn't meant to vandalize Wikipedia. I can be quite gulable, you see. Can you forgive me? I'll stop and create an account. Sorry for the inconvience! ;) 212.67.119.245 (talk) 11:46, 16 October 2018 (UTC)

Thanks, Djsasso for reverting vandalism from Stan Lee and Robert Mugabe. Always there when needed! ;) Lonny8 (talk) 13:24, 16 October 2018 (UTC)
