Welcome to Simple! I hope you are happy editing here and being a Wikipedian. Some helpful pages to start you off are Wikipedia:Useful, Help:Contents and Wikipedia:Policy.

If you want to meet and talk with other members, you can visit our version of the "village pump" at Wikipedia:Simple talk. Just remember that you should sign your messages on Talk pages by typing "~~~~" (four tildes) at the end of your words.

We have a special page that describes how to write Simple English articles. If you want some ideas of which pages to work on, read Wikipedia:Requested articles. -- Netoholic @ 02:48, 12 January 2006 (UTC)

RfD nomination of Corm[change source]

An editor has requested deletion of Corm, an article you created. We appreciate your changes, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article meets Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in the nomination (see also "What Wikipedia is not").

Please comment on the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/2020/Corm and please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also change the article during the discussion to address the nominator's concerns. But you should not remove the requests for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate. Thank you very much.

attack pages[change source]

this is an attack page and falls under the speedy deletion criteria. Why bother wasting editors time with a ridiculous afd? Praxidicae (talk) 20:11, 18 January 2020 (UTC)

There is currently a discussion, with comments; I'd therefore like to wait a little more about what other people say. We can still close the RfD early, in 2-3 days...--Eptalon (talk) 20:16, 18 January 2020 (UTC)
In any other circumstance I would understand but this is a blatant attack page about living persons who are not even notable and should be deleted immediately. Praxidicae (talk) 20:26, 18 January 2020 (UTC)
looking in google, I see SEWP first, which is a pretty clear indication on Notability, then the Reddit page. Also, look at the RfD - I haven't seen a 'keep' yet. If things stay as they are now, this can be closed early, in 2-3 days. --Eptalon (talk) 20:31, 18 January 2020 (UTC)
2-3 days? It should have been deleted already. Computer Fizz (talk) 20:33, 18 January 2020 (UTC)
I do not see where the 'attack page' logic is. --Eptalon (talk) 20:34, 18 January 2020 (UTC)
Did you bother to read any of the edit summaries? I'm not going to repeat them. Look at the history of the one you reverted and this. It's absolutely absurd. And I don't care what anyone sees on google, the fact that it's simple only should tell you it's not notable but I'm not here to argue that. This is against policy and requires speedy deletion as it's an outright attack page and violates every single policy. Praxidicae (talk) 20:37, 18 January 2020 (UTC)
That could be handled via Revision Delete, which leaves the question as to whether this is a valid redirect. Which in my opinion is not, but since another Admin is already reviewing this I will let them make that call. -- Enfcer (talk) 20:40, 18 January 2020 (UTC)
The fact that absolutely no one here is capable of spotting very blatant and obvious vandalism is beyond concerning and feeds the trolls. It would be like me redirecting Encfer in mainspace because you pissed me off on a Facebook comment thread. I guess the policy on attack pages doesn't apply here. Praxidicae (talk) 20:43, 18 January 2020 (UTC)
all done...--Eptalon (talk) 20:50, 18 January 2020 (UTC)

Shark! Shark!‎[change source]

Hello, this page and the rest I QD today as A3. I know the page creator is in good faith and tried some simplification. It was not till after the QD more of the texts are simplified. If you have the time, could you give more advices to the page creator on how to create simple pages, I think it's a valuable user but I just can't communicate well with them. Many thanks.--Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 20:17, 18 January 2020 (UTC)

Revdel action on Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/2020/Filmfx studio[change source]

The three revisions on the above page were indeed disruptive to the RfD process, but I do not think they meet the standard of disruption as suggested by RD3, which listed "grossly inappropriate threats or attacks" as an example, and also specifically indicated that "normal spam links" do not qualify for RD3. In addition, removing these diffs from public view may make it more difficult for future editors to cite evidence from the RfD when it comes to self-promotion of Filmfx studio.

Please reconsider the revdel action. Chenzw  Talk  02:56, 1 February 2020 (UTC)

I deleted the two revisions from the log because they contain an email address;note: I did not oversight, so as an admin, you are still able to view the revision. Also: closing an RfD (deciding whether the article should be kept or dleeted) is the task of an administrator, and not that of a named editor, who is likely a signle-purpose account. --Eptalon (talk) 08:15, 1 February 2020 (UTC)

Mr. Wikipedian[change source]


I have been inspired by your years of work here. For someone to be this dedicated to a small community like ours, you really are a rare gem of this community. This journey started with Algorithm in 2005 and you are still here with the same level of dedication, I find this really inspiring. In regard to all this, I feel honored to be able to give you this star. Thank you so much for all the work you have done here.

Guangdong Independence Movement[change source]


no , we havent this article in . i am translate from chinese.

The original article is in Chinese language and is still being completed. Please help me correct it when finished. What exactly meaning of Wikify? pls explain me. Unfortunately, all references are Chinese. Please wait until I translate the article completely, then try to find English sources. thank you so much.Alexisssa (talk) 10:50, 9 February 2020 (UTC)

Look at a page such as Khalistan movement, and how the article is formatted. The main keyword (Khalistan movement) is in bold typeface. The references in the source use <ref>{{cite web ...}}</ref> tags. But first finish translating, and then we look at it again. --Eptalon (talk) 11:01, 9 February 2020 (UTC)

Hello i finished translating the article. I tried to be without problems but it needs to be refined and simplified. The article contains interesting and very important material from Chinese history that contains very valuable material and I have translated from Chinese into English. The article is just a little long and time consuming. Please correct and improve the article in a manner that is consistent with the procedures. Thank you very much for your kindnessAlexisssa (talk) 19:50, 9 February 2020 (UTC)

Redirect of Constance baker motley[change source]

Hi, I was wondering what the point is of having a redirect with lowercase letters, is this usually the practice here? I was debating whether to leave it or to request QD, since I didn't know what is usually done around here. Reception123 (talk) 06:27, 13 February 2020 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) @Reception123: Redirects are cheap aside, which is per en, the redirect may be useful when someone typed the letters wrongly (in the wrong case) and we expect some of these here as not all users are proficient in English here. I think let's leave it per now. Anyway it had been declined once as a QD, you have to RFD it if you think is needed. Regards,--Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 06:37, 13 February 2020 (UTC)
@Camouflaged Mirage: Thank you for the answer, I was not requesting another QD I was just wondering what the policy is on redirects in order to follow it in the future. Reception123 (talk) 06:39, 13 February 2020 (UTC)
In this case, the redirect is probably justified; a redirect from cOnstance bAker mOtley , probably isn't (unlikely search term). Just use common sense...--Eptalon (talk) 18:24, 13 February 2020 (UTC)

Hello[change source]

Hello, just a heads up, I had contested your close of a RFD at DRV. Thanks for your attention. Regards,--Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 09:59, 14 February 2020 (UTC)

Deletion of article Ahlem Fekih[change source]

Hello , the article Ahlem Fekih was reliable but you deleted it. I would like to restore and improve the article and add notable sources. Thanks for your help Chdondon1990 (talk) 06:30, 16 February 2020 (UTC)

Suheil al-Hassan[change source]

Hi, I was just wondering why you decided to keep the article, since it seems to me to just be a copy/paste from enwiki. I'd like to know so I can keep the rule in mind for future QDs. Reception123 (talk) 19:04, 19 February 2020 (UTC)

The article exists in several other Wikipedias, so there's at least a claim to notability. Yes, I agree that it could be simplified, and probably needs sources. Given we at least have 'a claim' to notability rules out quick deletion. Yes I agree: It lacks sources, and could probably be simplified. If you think it should be deleted, go through the regular RfD process.--Eptalon (talk) 19:10, 19 February 2020 (UTC)
Thank you, so in the future if there is a similar article created (i.e. same as on en-wiki), I should add attribution rather than request quick deletion? Reception123 (talk) 19:11, 19 February 2020 (UTC)
If there's a claim to notability, and you think its too weak, go through regular RfD. Add a link to the EnWP article, if it exists. Otherwise: as I did, add the respective templates: {{complex}}, {{no sources}} or similar. And ofc add the link to Wikidata, if it isn't there yet.--Eptalon (talk) 19:15, 19 February 2020 (UTC)
Will keep that in mind, thank you for your help! Reception123 (talk) 19:49, 19 February 2020 (UTC)

lc66[change source]

Is there any reason for the decline of the qd here? I tagged it because the page was created by LC600 who is globally locked. Computer Fizz (talk) 23:05, 27 February 2020 (UTC)

QD restored: providing reasons for admin actions is not optional. Still interested in hearing from you though :) Computer Fizz (talk) 02:35, 2 March 2020 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) @Computer Fizz: I have re-declined the QD. It is not always necessary to delete pages created by globally locked users, especially user and user talk pages. When you're tagging pages created by such users, it would be better to leave the user and user talk pages alone unless there's some other reason to delete them. --Auntof6 (talk) 03:23, 2 March 2020 (UTC)
@Auntof6: Thanks for the info. But let me explain my rationales:
1) It feels offbeat for me to leave it up the state created by an LTA. Of course this acceptable in cases like GRP capitalizing the word March, but I don't see any reason here. Which is why I suggest replacing it with a sock/blocked user template.
2) Even if the QD is declined, that still doesn't justify to rollback the QD, and then make matters even worse by not replying to my statement on his talk page.
Is this a reasonable solution? Computer Fizz (talk) 04:10, 2 March 2020 (UTC)
We don't have a QD option to delete pages created by a locked/blocked editor so your QD wasn't appropriate. Whether it should have been rolled back or not it definitely should have been declined and removed as it was a completely invalid request. As for not engaging with you everyone is a volunteer and may not respond in a timely manor. Secondly, readding the QD template after it has been declined by an admin is disruptive editing and could lead to a block. So really think about what you are arguing here. -DJSasso (talk) 11:56, 2 March 2020 (UTC)

notability[change source]

Hi there. If an admin of Wikipedia deletes article because it doesn't claim notability.. What it mean? And how to claim notability? Syedfalak (talk) 16:43, 14 March 2020 (UTC)

It basically means: Other (independent) sources talk about the person, company, event... - There's a writeup at Wikipedia:Notability that gives the details. --Eptalon (talk) 17:08, 14 March 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for your prompt response. As I've gotten articles on many publications websites and i want biography page on Wikipedia. I've tried to create Wikipedia page but unfortunately it got rejected. Can you please help me to create a biography page about me? Syedfalak (talk) 23:20, 14 March 2020 (UTC)

restoration request[change source]

Hi. Recently someone delete a page which i published yesterday.. And i don't know the exact reason but it's my request to restore it temporarily (if you cannot restore it permanently) because i want social media verification and i sent that link to social media verification form the verification request is still pending if the page is delete and they review the link they'll reject my verification request and it'll be very painful for me.. if you please restore that page for a week I'll be very thankful to you.. Here is the link: Syedfalak (talk) 09:26, 15 March 2020 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) @Syedfalak: That page was deleted because it did not meet Wikipedia's requirements for showing notability. Also please note:
  • Wikipedia is not social media. It is an online encyclopedia.
  • Wikipedia is not to be used for temporary articles needed for outside verification.
  • Since you are closely associated with the company that the article was about, you should probably not create the article yourself. See Wikipedia:Conflict of interest for more information on this.
If you want to pursue this, I recommend making the request at WP:AN. However, I don't think the article would be restored. --Auntof6 (talk) 22:17, 15 March 2020 (UTC)

@Auntof6: As you said I'm closely associated with the company and i cannot create the article. So is there any other way to create article about my company? Syedfalak (talk) 20:26, 16 March 2020 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) @Syedfalak: Wait for someone else to create the article. If a company is really notable, people will create in due course. Or else write a draft and allow someone else to move it to article space (preferably an admin). Regards,--Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 15:46, 16 March 2020 (UTC)

@Camouflaged Mirage: Thanks for your prompt response.. How to write a draft? And how to allow someone else to move it to article space? Kindly briefly explain this.. Thank & Regards. Syedfalak (talk) 20:53, 16 March 2020 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) @Syedfalak: Create it in User:Syedfalak/draft. Thanks. When done, post to WP:ST for review, disclosing your paid status. --Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 16:32, 17 March 2020 (UTC)

Dhiraj Mishra[change source]

Thanks Eptalon, for not doing a speedy deletion and providing the opportunity for cleanup, This was my first article so please find below justification.
1. I've changed the occupation from Hacker to Information Security which fits more better, the article is not borderline notable.
Would request if you can move this article to main space. Aside the article has a proper references with citation. Please let me know if any further clarification is required.

Hello![change source]

Hello Eptalon! Are you an admin here on Simple English Wikipedia? --Technoquat (Simple English) (talk) 20:10, 12 April 2020 (UTC)

Yes, I am; I am also bureaucrat, CheckUser, and Oversighter. I would however suggest you use the "Email user" function, to not reveal deatails that not everyone should be able to read. --Eptalon (talk) 20:17, 12 April 2020 (UTC)
Okay, great. My name is Technoquat. I am new to Simple English Wikipedia. I was active on the normal Wikipedia, but I was subject to a 'community ban' after a persistant trolling campaign in the early 2010s. My community ban disclosure is here. I have turned over a new leaf and now I am not a troll or a vandal. I hope to build an encyclopedia here.
Will Simple English Wikipedia accept an ex-offender? --Technoquat (Simple English) (talk) 20:41, 12 April 2020 (UTC)
Hello there, and that you for being so open about your past (which is long past, if that was the only offence). Like most other wikis, we judge people on what they do, so: Try making constructive edits, and don't spend time in endless discussions. If as you say, you want to start anew: be welcome. Note however: This community is much smaller than EnWP. So unless you start using multiple accounts in bad ways ("socking"), or doing other things that usually get you blocked/banned, you get a new chance here. Also note, that if anyone finds you doing the things that got you blocked on EnWP 8 years ago, we will be swift to react. In short: have fun editing here, and avoid doing stuff that gets you blocked. --Eptalon (talk) 20:56, 12 April 2020 (UTC)
Thanks! I'll start editing stuff now! Goodbye old troll, hello new me! Be sure to look out for my awesome edits. --Technoquat (Simple English) (talk) 20:58, 12 April 2020 (UTC)

Quick Deletion[change source]

Hello Eptalon, can you please share your reasons as to why you quick deleted the page? The page meets all the criteria. The reason I recreated the deleted page was the issues in the write up and citations of the previous one, and a lot of irrelevant details and references were used. This page uses all the relevant information only and doesn't fail any wiki criteria. Why would you still ask to delete it? Thank you for your input. Falixx (talk) 20:03, 23 May 2020 (UTC)

Half a week ago, I took the decision to delete the page; see the RfD discussion. Less than a week later, you re-create the page, with very similar content. So I quick deleted it under A4("recreation with the same or similar content"). Given the deletion discussion happened less than two weeks ago, there's no reason for discussion,little will have changed. If you think the page should not have been deleted (referring to the RfD), please add a request to the deletion review page.--Eptalon (talk) 20:18, 23 May 2020 (UTC)
Thanks for getting back. If similar content is the issue, we can change that, can't we? Can I add a request deletion review with unique content? Falixx (talk) 20:36, 23 May 2020 (UTC)
This is a Wikipedia, we are always happy if people contribute. Deletion review: I think this is the first step. Any other admin will act similarly, if they see a page being re-created with very similar content, shortly after the RfD closed.--Eptalon (talk) 20:43, 23 May 2020 (UTC)

Article Revelation 13:18[change source]

Hello Eptalon this is concerning your deletion request for the article Revelation 13:18 I submitted a revised draft of the article thinking it met wiki reliable source guidelines from the researched feedback given on the article from the community. When you did a speedy delete you noted it was promotional so the article was edited to met wiki guidelines and rewriting at am encyclopedic form and resubmitted. The article is not spam I tried to fix the errors in the article and resubmitted. Please don't penalize my submission for being a novice on Wikipedia. Can you quick delete the article instead of having it go through this process Thanks-- — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

Hello, his is exactly the reason I didnt quick dleete the article again, but that I sought community input. You'll see that the same day I also nominated a signer/songwrter from Uganda, and an Italian fashiondesigner. I will likely not be the one who closes these nominations (its good tone not to); anyway, you got a week to convince the community that the rapper is indeed notable, and that he deserves an article here. RfD is more of a discussion, than a death sentence for the article in question.--Eptalon (talk) 20:26, 6 June 2020 (UTC)

Hello Eptalon can you quick delete this article on Revelation 13:18 appreciate it. Thanks

There is a Article of Dinesh Gupta that is not now live. The reason for deleted I have to know, tell us we will change the effective matter.

Thankyou Berkcanyurdem4 (talk) 06:25, 8 June 2020 (UTC)

See Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/2020/Dinesh Gupta; in short: the article did not meet the criteria (notabliity mostly) to be included in this Wikipedia. --Eptalon (talk) 16:43, 8 June 2020 (UTC)

Check if users are related?[change source]

Forgive me if this is probably the incorrect channel and would appreciate if you could point me towards the right direction where these requests may be appropriate. When you get a chance, would it be possible for you to look into whether Meena Beaney and ImranMohammedAli are somehow related/using the same IP? My suspicion stems from the following thread where a vote was attributed/signed as Meena whilst it was Imran who made that change. — Infogapp1 (talk) 13:03, 26 June 2020 (UTC)

I beg your pardon for an unprofessional action and unethical edit. Please forgive me as this was my first time on Wikipedia. And I promise you great behavior from now on. I really don't know who Meena Beaney is and it is not at all possible to have the same IP. Help me keep this article live and Give me an opportunity and help me study more about Wikipedia and scale myself up (ImranMohammedAli (talk) 15:15, 26 June 2020 (UTC)).
Hello, the correct place ot ask isthe Request for ChekUser page. It also has a link to the Checkuser policy, which details what checks are possible. SO please file a request there. --Eptalon (talk) 16:05, 26 June 2020 (UTC)
All done, thanks. — Infogapp1 (talk) 20:22, 26 June 2020 (UTC)

Reason of deletion[change source]

Hi, I was created the article but I saw you deleted it, can I ask why? when that article available on other languages! Feloniii (talk) 11:23, 28 June 2020 (UTC)Feloniii

If you are referring to Habib Alejalil, the page was a person that in my opinion, does not show notability. Someone doing the job he was trained for is not notable, by default. --Eptalon (talk) 11:31, 28 June 2020 (UTC)

@Eptalon: but we can't decide by our opinion, here is a short and simple version of wikipedia, I know the rules and laws of wikipedia, when the article accepted on other languages, it's no reason for delete from here Feloniii (talk) 11:49, 28 June 2020 (UTC)Feloniii

@Eptalon: please restore it. Feloniii (talk) 12:05, 28 June 2020 (UTC)Feloniii

Eptalon, that was clearly a bad QD, we can only use that criteria where there is no claim. Vermont (talk) 12:51, 28 June 2020 (UTC)

Hello, I'm from Bengali Wikipedia. I noticed that someone created Jahid Hossain Pinkel again, which was deleted many times. See Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/2020/Jahid Hossain Pinkel & log. Please delete this & if possible WP:SALT this. Thanks. --আফতাবুজ্জামান (talk) 22:44, 2 July 2020 (UTC)

Thanks. I know & i did but some IP keeps removing it. --আফতাবুজ্জামান (talk) 23:03, 2 July 2020 (UTC)
@আফতাবুজ্জামান: Yes I just saw that. The IP is block evading and needs blocking. I don't know who created the original article but I see that they were indeffed on the request for deletion. IWI (chat) 23:05, 2 July 2020 (UTC)

Hey! I found that you had found Todd Stephenson not notable. He has a lot of press online when I checked.

Mali War[change source]

I don't understand why you want the page at Mali war. Wars should have capital letters (like World War II). IWI (chat) 15:58, 12 July 2020 (UTC)

  • There were other Tuareg rebellions (1916/17, 1962-64, 1990-96, 2006,2007-2009), which were in Mali and Niger. see en:List of conflicts in Mali for a full listing. Mali War suggests this is extrarodinary or special, in some way, when its just one in a series of several. --Eptalon (talk) 16:06, 12 July 2020 (UTC)
Ah ok. That makes sense then. Apoligies for the revert. Should a RM be started on enwiki? IWI (chat) 16:08, 12 July 2020 (UTC)

I'm intrigued over Madison Taylor Baez‎[change source]

I flagged it as a copyright violation. The same article is in draft unless already deleted on en WP. The creating editor contested the deletion, and the procedure here is to turn it into a deletion discussion. Now I'm fine with that, but perplexed. Does Simple WP not have the same rigour over removal of copyvios as en WP?

I'm always happy to learn. Timtrent (talk) 09:33, 25 July 2020 (UTC)

I didn't do an in-depth analysis of her site, but at first glace, I don't see a copyright violation. So the standard procedure is the same as with other contested deletions: go through a regular RfD. Please onte: I nominated the article, so I won't be the person closing the request. If other admins see the copyright violation, they may close the RfD early. --Eptalon (talk) 09:43, 25 July 2020 (UTC)
That makes sense, and no, of course you won't be closing it. Are there tools here like Earwig's CV detector on en WP? If so how do I invoke them here? And is Twinkle (etc) a thing here? Please ping me in your reply to ensure I see it. I'm not here often Timtrent (talk) 09:57, 25 July 2020 (UTC)
BTW the cv is on the splash page at We all ignore splash pages Timtrent (talk) 10:04, 25 July 2020 (UTC)
Twinkle turned up after 10 edits! Who knew? Timtrent (talk) 12:58, 25 July 2020 (UTC)

QD decline[change source]

Is there a particular reason you declined this QD? It is a direct copy with no attribution, thus a copyvio. IWI (chat) 18:19, 29 July 2020 (UTC)

About quick deletion of article "Muserk"[change source]


I found an article "Muserk" was deleted at sudden, because you said it was against Wiki policy. The reason why I made this article is that it related with copyright. As long as you do not allow me, it is alright but you had better notice in advance. The article originally belongs to me, and thus I have an absolute copyright of the article, please send me back a copy of source text to my Talk page, then I will save it for my own usage only.

Thank you. --Green (talk) 00:28, 3 August 2020 (UTC)

I'll leave it up to Eptalon to decide if he wants to offer to userify this article for you to work on, but I want to clear something up: you said "the article originally belongs to me, and thus I have an absolute copyright of the article." This is false. Every time you edit an article you're agreeing to this disclaimer: Any writing you send to Wikipedia is legally released under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License 3.0 GNU Free Documentation License (GFDL).

Thank you. It seems to me he decided the article in question as it was like an advertisement. Thus, before deleting the article, he should give me a time to store for it before deleting. Creative Commons License admits a right to stop license copyrighted materials by licensor.
What's more, "Muserk" is a copyright management company, which has an agreenment with JASRAC. Please see this news: ASCAP remains as article in both EN-Wiki and Simple-Wiki. In spite of this fact, "Muserk" was deleted. You see ? It is not quite fair policy at all. --Green (talk) 16:52, 3 August 2020 (UTC)
Hello, in my view, Muserk is a company like any other, and does not possess encyclopedic notability of its own; that's why I quick-deleted the article. Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, it is not a company listing.--Eptalon (talk) 17:27, 3 August 2020 (UTC)
Hello, I should tell that Muserk is an entity such as JASRAC to manage copyrights, that deeply concerns in music industry. That is why there is notable to inform many people in an encyclopedia. According to your logic, an article "Sony Corp." should be deleted at once. This is my view. --Green (talk) 23:33, 3 August 2020 (UTC)

Question from outside[change source]

Hi Eptalon I am admin at swwiki. I write to you because of a remark you made a while ago at meta:Requests_for_comment/Activity_levels_of_advanced_administrative_rights_holders. At swwiki we start to discuss once more our admin list. You proposed back then to look at "admin actions". How do you do that? Is there a specific lookup method or do you count these "by hand"? Kipala (talk) 05:39, 22 August 2020 (UTC)

prior to changed to before on 1886 Charleston earthquake[change source]

Prior to was changed to before on the page 1886 Charleston earthquake. For what reason? Angela Kate Maureen 18:50, 23 August 2020 (UTC)

I thought it would be easier to understand,with roughly the same meaning. If that is not the case undo my edit (remember:English is not my mothertongue)
(talk page stalker) @Tropical Storm Angela: I agree with Eptalon that "before" is simpler than "prior to". --IWI (talk) 18:59, 23 August 2020 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) @Tropical Storm Angela: I also agree. Angela, you've asked this kind of question many times. You could often find the answer by checking Wikipedia:Basic English combined wordlist. --Auntof6 (talk) 20:14, 23 August 2020 (UTC)
