This has nothing to do with Simple English Wikipedia. -DJSasso (talk) 15:15, 6 December 2016 (UTC)

Template:Infobox software platform

Last month, you updated this template. However, it isn't used anywhere so I was thinking of nominating it for deletion. If you think it's worth keeping, could you add it to some articles? Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 05:36, 17 December 2016 (UTC)

It is part of another template if I recall correctly, it is called as part of Template:Infobox software. So you can't tell that it is used by just looking at what links there. That being said I have no particular care one way or the other. I only created it because it was missing and the other box was throwing errors I think. -DJSasso (talk) 14:11, 20 December 2016 (UTC)

Hello, just a little correction.

A tiny question for you; The other day I made an article on simplewiki under the title of Marie Gabrielle Éléonore de Bourbon and I noticed a few days after hat you had moved it to Marie Anne Éléonore de Bourbon. This is incorrect. As it clearly states in her article that she signed with the names "Marie Gabrielle Éléonore". I was actually blocked by the wonderfully bureaucratic bully User:Chenzw so am not able to discuss the move with you at length but I can assure you that she was M G É de Bourbon. Her own signature is also in the infbox on said article. I was actually the person that created her article on enwiki several years ago prior to having seen her signature and just naming her M A É out of ease. So I'd like to politely ask you if you could move it back to the correct (based on her own signature) and therefore more logical name. Obviously I would've messaged you on simplewiki but I've had that ability ripped away from me so this was the next best option. (Also a majority of the articles about her in other languages follow the M G É pattern too). Thanks. (talk) 18:36, 6 February 2017 (UTC)

Wikipedia uses WP:COMMONNAME for names which is not always their actual names. --DJSasso (talk) 23:41, 6 February 2017 (UTC)

The wiki i made was not spam /vandalism

WTF I just made a page that wasn't even spam /vandalism and it got deleted Napro24567 (talk) 15:15, 29 March 2017 (UTC)

The Wiki Editor SA

I noticed that you did a mass delete of pages created by The Wiki Editor SA (talk · contribs). Could you leave the user a note about why it is you deleted his/her pages? I was surprised to see the user has an empty user talk page despite his/her articles being mass deleted, and at least one of the articles having been nominated for RfD. It would be proper form to leave the user a message or notice explaining what the issues were with their articles. Thanks, Only (talk) 20:48, 1 June 2017 (UTC)

User cross-wiki blocked. They are most likely aware but I can if you would like. That being said you leave messages when you speedy articles? (I should note I know the answer. I randomly checked 10 of your last 50 and none of them did) I don't think really anyone does. -DJSasso (talk) 11:34, 2 June 2017 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) @Only: The page nominated for RfD should really have been QD'd, anyway. All of Wiki Editor SA's edits were disruptive. StevenJ81 (talk) 15:18, 2 June 2017 (UTC)
I didn't see anything about a cross-wiki block until today when you blocked the account. I didn't know there was a connection to an IP. If I'd been aware of that previous, I wouldn't have left a message here; I definitely have no problem with you mass deleting a user's contributions if they're a known cross-wiki vandal. Since their named account only has contributions here, I had no knowledge of abuse on other wikis.
I leave notices generally if there's more than one article/issue; in the case of a mass delete like this, I would have left a message. Then again, I'm only really ever mass deleting if the user is also getting blocked. Most of my mass deletes lately have been for returning vandals so it's been a lot of delete, block, notify of the block. Only (talk) 20:00, 2 June 2017 (UTC)
Yeah to be honest the actual block got missed cause I moved on to deleting the IP articles as well and then forgot to return to the account. -DJSasso (talk) 23:49, 2 June 2017 (UTC)


I see that you recently changed this taxobox. Was it because of the syntax errors in articles such as Carnivoramorpha? I was trying to get that article out of and saw the syntax issues. Is this something you're looking into? Could the problem have something to do with the fact that we don't have Template:Sets taxobox colour? --Auntof6 (talk) 22:06, 29 June 2017 (UTC)

I updated it for something else. But that template was the fix to your problem. Thought I had grabbed all the templates we didn't already have. Thanks. -DJSasso (talk) 23:31, 29 June 2017 (UTC)

Regarding your bugfix on the Taxobox

Hi Djsasso. I wonder if you could help me for a moment please. I've just had to undo the change to the Taxobox template you made June 29th, because I noticed while editing another article, that the Taxobox template was entirely broken, and had code remnants showing through in the box itself. The undo that I performed, appears to have fixed the broken box, but since you were trying to fix a bug, I am aware that I may have caused further complications. Is there any way you could have another look at the template code please, and see if you can sort out what went wrong? Many thanks, DaneGeld (talk) 21:15, 31 August 2017 (UTC)

Could you let me know what page you saw the issues on? -DJSasso (talk) 10:32, 1 September 2017 (UTC)
Yes, with pleasure. The problem was visible on the page Organism, where I initially thought the editor may have done something wrong when using the template. The template usage appeared correct, so I checked the documentation on Template:Taxobox and saw that the box was also broken there; there is a blank demonstration of the Taxobox on the bottom of the template page, and the resulting box that the code produced was also broken. I would like to take a screenshot to show you, but the box is widely used (about 3800 articles) and I don't want to make unnecessary edits. If you would like me to do this though, please let me know. Thank you! DaneGeld (talk) 14:28, 1 September 2017 (UTC)

http vs. https

Hi, Djsasso. I'm curious about why you're undoing KolbertBot's changes where http was changed to https in external links. Are some of the https links not working? --Auntof6 (talk) 02:51, 18 September 2017 (UTC)

I didn't undo any of his changes. I was undoing changes by an IP that was vandalizing. -DJSasso (talk) 02:53, 18 September 2017 (UTC)
Its possible I caught one or two in a revert, but being a bot it will fix them again anyway, doesn't actually break anything. -DJSasso (talk) 02:56, 18 September 2017 (UTC)


Hi Djsasso, Is there really any point in keeping the report ?, I'm assuming no one's replied because it's inactionable/declined and all IPs blocked so far make no mention of the fact they're a sock so atleast in my eyes my report is simply a waste of space essentially ?,
Obviously I'm not gonna war over it but I really don't see the point in keeping it? ..., Thanks, –Davey2010Talk 03:13, 18 September 2017 (UTC)

Reports are kept in case we need to go back and see history. Talk pages/reporting pages are essentially permanent. Not everything reported to CUs can be commented on. We can't actually link an IP to an account publicly so none of us could say whether or not those are socks of that user. -DJSasso (talk) 03:16, 18 September 2017 (UTC)
Ahhhh right, Yeah I forgot about the public IP identifying thing, Okie dokie well thanks for reverting anyway :), Happy editing :), –Davey2010Talk 18:02, 18 September 2017 (UTC)

edits to Template:Orphan

Your edits to Template:Orphan may cause the issue template to not show up on orphaned articles, or may cause the template to not show up correctly. Can you please do something about it? Angela Maureen (talk) 01:04, 21 September 2017 (UTC)

It is working, it makes the template hidden so it doesn't show. -DJSasso (talk) 01:16, 21 September 2017 (UTC)
I hadn't gotten to updating the documentation yet. It now explains how it works. It shows for couple of months and then it hides old ones but still categorizes them. If you want to always see them there is an explanation for what you can put in your css file to make them always show. Basically all I did was standardize the tag here with the tag on as the orphan tag tends to get over used. -DJSasso (talk) 01:26, 21 September 2017 (UTC)

Can you help me with some revdel & admin bits please?

I have 2 3 IP addresses here who have been hounding me for part of the morning. I tried to alert the staff on the IRC channel, but as always, it's deader than A-Line flares with pockets in the knees. One IP has edited my userpage, talk page and the article Danegeld (after which I'm named), and laid them with offensive vandalism suggesting I should have a seizure, hit my head and become a vegetable. The other has now banned me from their talk page and is removing warning messages from their talk page.

The ones leaving the very offensive vandalism is: and and the other with the delusion that they can ban people from their talk page, is a school IP at:

Any help you can give me with these two is welcomed; there's no point putting them at VIP or warning them as they remove warnings and then (as they did with me) will probably threaten you. DaneGeld (talk) 11:00, 26 September 2017 (UTC)

There is every point to placing these at VIP, that is our procedure. I have dealt with these now.--Peterdownunder (talk) 11:44, 26 September 2017 (UTC)
Looks like you beat me to it. Thanks. -DJSasso (talk) 12:31, 26 September 2017 (UTC)
Thank you both. I didn't put them at VIP because with them removing warnings, their talk pages were blank, so I expect I'd have been told they'd been insufficiently warned. I know everyone is busy, but I tried IRC, I tried pinging an admin there, I tried looking for admins in the en channel and found nobody. We seem to be sparse on the floor. DaneGeld (talk) 13:01, 26 September 2017 (UTC)
Yeah I don't think many of us use IRC anymore. It got crazy there a few years back and people just stopped going on. Feel free to put it on VIP, worst case scenario is that no one takes action on it. I don't think anyone would get mad you reported vandalism. If it is something particularly offensive (ie libel or personal information etc) then feel free to email the oversight list and we can hide it. -DJSasso (talk) 13:08, 26 September 2017 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) @DaneGeld: As admins, we're wise to the fact that people remove talk page warnings and VIP reports (I actually have the VIP page on my watchlist so that I see each change). Leave the warnings and post at VIP anyway. Then if an admin doesn't check for deletions and says the person wasn't sufficiently warned, just point out that we need to check the page history. Of course, that's assuming that they really did get an appropriate number of graduated warnings, and, if it's an IP, that the warnings were within a close enough time frame. --Auntof6 (talk) 13:47, 26 September 2017 (UTC)

{{Policy shortcut}}

Are you going to create {{For nowiki}} that your change called? StevenJ81 (talk) 21:57, 31 October 2017 (UTC)

Odd that I missed that one but yeah I have brought it in. -DJSasso (talk) 11:44, 1 November 2017 (UTC)


Do you know what exactly was deprecated that was on this page? What was the source of what you copied over? --Auntof6 (talk) 18:46, 1 November 2017 (UTC)

Specifically no, I just copied over the most current version from the source that the comments on that script say it was copied from. en:User:Anomie/linkclassifier.js. It might say on the contribs there what needed to be fixed. -DJSasso (talk) 19:17, 3 November 2017 (UTC)
OK, thanks. I don't know if what you copied was copacetic, either, but I'll look at it. I do know that it required extensive changes for Simple, and the version on enwiki is probably no use here. --Auntof6 (talk) 19:23, 3 November 2017 (UTC)
Yeah by all means revert me. Was just trying to help out. :) -DJSasso (talk) 19:24, 3 November 2017 (UTC)
And I appreciate it! --Auntof6 (talk) 19:44, 3 November 2017 (UTC)


You've been importing a lot of templates and things recently, right? Could that have anything to do with the hundreds of new wanted maintenance categories? --Auntof6 (talk) 19:12, 1 November 2017 (UTC)

And some non-maintenance cats, too. --Auntof6 (talk) 19:16, 1 November 2017 (UTC)
Quite likely. I will have to go through the list once I get the chance. -DJSasso (talk) 19:15, 3 November 2017 (UTC)

Template:Infobox Swiss town/map

Do you think the error on Poschiavo is coming from Template:Infobox Swiss town/map? Looks like you just did an update, so I don't think so, but I'm not sure where else to look. Thanks! --Tbennert (talk) 16:28, 2 November 2017 (UTC)

Yeah I only brought over some of the map templates. Looks like that editor copied over the infobox from en and it did not have the right module to display everything en displays. I have brought it over. I will end up going trough and getting all the parts but didn't expect someone to bring over a box from there so fast. -DJSasso (talk) 17:05, 2 November 2017 (UTC)

Can you block joguarbot

I don't think it's authorized and is unexplainedly reverting edits...through it's probably a human..Computer Fizz (talk) 16:26, 7 November 2017 (UTC)

PS, apologies for not posting this for ANI, it/he is patrolling that page so I just stuck it some random place and hoped he wouldn't check. Computer Fizz (talk) 16:29, 7 November 2017 (UTC)

No need to hide such notices. Either way it is done. -DJSasso (talk) 16:29, 7 November 2017 (UTC)
No, he kept reverting it. I couldn't post there.
Also, he made another one called ZARBOT. this time, I will post on ani. Computer Fizz (talk) 16:31, 7 November 2017 (UTC)

Sabrina Carpenter

Can you clean out some of the previous revisions? Thanks Artix Kreiger (talk) 04:15, 12 November 2017 (UTC)

I guess someone else did. Artix Kreiger (talk) 23:58, 13 November 2017 (UTC)
Wasn't really something eligible to clear out but looks like someone did it anyway. -DJSasso (talk) 00:11, 14 November 2017 (UTC)


Is SassoBot not running any more? Its last change was on October 3. --Auntof6 (talk) 02:57, 14 November 2017 (UTC)

I use when I need it for various tasks. Since BarrasBot has been running lately I haven't used it for archiving if that is what you are asking about. If he is down again I can turn it back on. -DJSasso (talk) 14:56, 15 November 2017 (UTC)
Thanks. Yes, I was looking at archiving. SassoBot archived my talk page two times since the last time BarrasBot did on 8 September, but I see that BarrasBot has been archiving other user talk pages recently. Maybe there's something about my user talk page specifically, but I don't see what it could be. --Auntof6 (talk) 17:28, 15 November 2017 (UTC)
I will take a look when I get home and run it and see if it archives anything. -DJSasso (talk) 17:42, 15 November 2017 (UTC)
Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 17:51, 15 November 2017 (UTC)
Yeah not sure why his is skipping you but its easy enough for me to set mine up to run to catch any he doesn't. I probably won't get it up and going tonight but I will try to remember. -DJSasso (talk) 01:05, 16 November 2017 (UTC)
Thanks again. I see that SassoBot has now archived a lot from my talk page. --Auntof6 (talk) 01:42, 16 November 2017 (UTC)

Quick Question

How did you get the list of towns/cities/places on AWB? Artix Kreiger (talk) 23:58, 14 November 2017 (UTC)

It's just a list of cities from a Category. -DJSasso (talk) 14:57, 15 November 2017 (UTC)

Hi DJSasso, Could you do the honours again please?, The IP's still vandalising, Thanks, –Davey2010Talk 00:36, 7 December 2017 (UTC)


Thanks for the thing, I was trying to get ahold of someone on IRC, but also I did notice they created an extra 2 users before you blocked, your most recent person. Just would like you to know. --Clarkcj12 (talk) 17:53, 13 December 2017 (UTC)

Yup got them all already. -DJSasso (talk) 17:53, 13 December 2017 (UTC)
Hey if you ever get a change can you check out my sandbox version of {{TCMdb title}} to see if I push it to main, if would break any of the existing structures of the template. As I pulled it over from English Wikipedia to try to help use the WikiData property's. Also I am not sure as the {{Authority control}} template could be updated to use the Wikidata properties, as such we wouldn't have to worry about the params, but that would have to use the Module System from English Wikipedia, which should work. But I believe it would be an admin that would have to work on that. Thanks, --Clarkcj12 (talk) 17:59, 13 December 2017 (UTC)

Editing hiatus and bot operation

Hi there, and sorry about the long break in editing (along with the bot). University has made life more hectic than I originally expected. I have restarted the bot, by the way, and it seems that my host is on the end of chronic connectivity issues. Arrangements are in place to move to another host if necessary. Chenzw  Talk  05:56, 20 December 2017 (UTC)

No worries I totally understand that. Just wanted to make sure all was ok. -DJSasso (talk) 15:28, 20 December 2017 (UTC)


Hi Djsasso, You closed Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/2017/Abdulrahman Elsamni‎ as delete but didn't delete the article so just thought I'd make you aware, Thanks, –Davey2010Talk 12:27, 21 December 2017 (UTC)

Yeah I was just checking on some stuff before I deleted it. -DJSasso (talk) 12:28, 21 December 2017 (UTC)


@Djsasso: In response to the comment you left for me on WP:RFP, I do agree to everything you said. I have since went back and added the proper atrribution to the articles, templates, and etc. I do have one question though is it needed to provide attribution for even minor edits such as adding an infobox/navbox or authority control to an article? What about a minor section such as related pages, I do copy that from as such it is already formatted out, and makes it easier since it is already filled out most of the time. Does something that minor require us to put a {{Based on}} template on the talk page as well, even though all of that information is found on the page? As that is what my major contribus have been to expanding the, French Communes articles by providing more information through infobox, navbox and related pages, and on BLP's copying references for paragraphs that are very similar to --Clarkcj12 (talk) 00:38, 22 December 2017 (UTC)

No those are mostly ok. It was more the wholesale copying of templates you created that I was commenting on. If you were to copy over a whole section of an article I might just mention in the edit summary where you are getting it from. But for things like infoboxes/navboxes being added to articles it doesn't matter. -DJSasso (talk) 00:53, 22 December 2017 (UTC)

Request Protection

I am not sure if you can, but could you please semi-protect my userpage? I do quite a bit of anti-vandal work so it can sometimes be vandalized in retaliation. --Clarkcj12 (talk) 19:03, 3 January 2018 (UTC)

(talk page stalker)  Done --Auntof6 (talk) 19:13, 3 January 2018 (UTC)


...If you say so. I don’t see it as vandalism, however. —Glendales 20:56, 3 January 2018 (UTC)

Better way

Is there a better way to do the attribution for the templates I do bring over? I know I tried doing the based on the talk and they always got deleted by an admin. So I did in edit summary from then link. I would do import if that would work better if I could like you are doing. Is there a better way to do the attribution then or am I doing okay? --Clarkcj12 (talk) 04:56, 4 January 2018 (UTC)

Edit summary is perfectly fine, I only was doing the imports so that I could pull over any other templates those ones used which was easier than me looking through code. I am trying to bring all our templates up to date. We had a big mishmash of half updated templates because people were updating the main template and then never updating ones that it used, so I was checking on those to see if they called anything else that might not have been caught in my earlier updating. -DJSasso (talk) 04:59, 4 January 2018 (UTC)
Is there a way I could help you with that? But I know just one person doing that would/will take a lot of time to do it. --Clarkcj12 (talk) 05:01, 4 January 2018 (UTC)
Generally we don't give import out to non-admins cause its a pretty powerful tool than can do quite a bit of damage. Even I make the odd mistake and its a lot easier to clean up your mistakes if you have admin tools to do it. Just continue on how you are doing. You are doing fine. -DJSasso (talk) 05:03, 4 January 2018 (UTC)
No worry's I understand. I have a local wiki so I know how it works. Maybe as I go I will help you out if and when I come a across something. --Clarkcj12 (talk) 05:05, 4 January 2018 (UTC)


I back-levelled this template because the updates you imported apparently resulted in errors where it's used. It was something about a missing function. Just letting you know in case you want to re-import and take a look at it. --Auntof6 (talk) 05:25, 4 January 2018 (UTC)

Wierd I didn't see that when I did it, must have been looking at a cached page, either way I fixed the issue now it appears. -DJSasso (talk) 12:21, 4 January 2018 (UTC)
Thanks. It looks like there's a similar problem with Template:Lang-ja. See Care Bears#Care Bears in other languages for an example. --Auntof6 (talk) 18:36, 4 January 2018 (UTC)
I am thinking its possible that when I imported someone was in the process of changing a bunch of templates, and some weren't fully updated yet when I imported because there was a new edit on that solved the problem in both cases. -DJSasso (talk) 01:39, 5 January 2018 (UTC)

Mass EN imports

When mass importing from EN Wiki like you have been doing, shouldn’t you flood flag yourself during the operation? Your recent import batch of 70+ pages is completely flooding RC. —Glendales 17:17, 4 January 2018 (UTC)

That isn't an issue. -DJSasso (talk) 17:40, 4 January 2018 (UTC)
But I thought that’s what the flood flag was for - to prevent mass actions from cluttering RC. —Glendales 18:44, 4 January 2018 (UTC)
That is what it is for, but for only 70 changes its not really a big deal. I hadn't actually realized it would be that many either considering the template I was bringing over. Either way 70 isn't really hard to deal with, now if I was doing hundreds or thousands yeah I would have made sure I had the flag. -DJSasso (talk) 21:30, 4 January 2018 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) Seventy changes isn't considered flooding. Besides that, there's a way to group imports (and other things that are in logs) so that they appear combined in one line. It might also be that the flood flag doesn't apply to imports; I'm not sure. --Auntof6 (talk) 19:11, 4 January 2018 (UTC)
