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)
