Quick deletion criteria[change source]

Hello! You may want to take a look at the quick deletion criteria so you can make quick deletion requests instead of requests for deletion where it is possible. Your recent request for deletion (Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/2021/Kolektyvizacija) was closed quickly as it could be quickly deleted, so please check the quick deletion criteria before sending a page to RfD. Thanks, :) --Belwine (talk) 15:27, 4 April 2021 (UTC)

@Belwine: Ah, alright. Thanks for letting me know! Fixing26 (talk) 15:30, 4 April 2021 (UTC)

Thank you[change source]

@Fixing26: Thank you, Mr. Fixing 26! For connecting my recently created Wikipedia articles with other language wikis through wikidata. I know these through a notification I received recently. Haoreima (talk) 15:57, 9 April 2021 (UTC)

No problem! Great job with your articles by the way, keep it up! Fixing26 (talk) 16:01, 9 April 2021 (UTC)

Information.svg Hello and welcome to Wikipedia. Everyone is welcome to make helpful changes to the encyclopedia. You may not know that Wikipedia has a Manual of Style that should be followed to keep the encyclopedia looking neat and professional. Using different styles in the encyclopedia, as you did to "Template:Christian_Peoples_Alliance/meta/color", can make it harder to read. Please take a look at the welcome page to learn more about changing this encyclopedia. Thank you. When you make templates, especially those that use color, you must follow the guidelines found in the MOS linked above. As a worldwide project, we have to be ADA accessible and the colors you chose are not accessible to those with poor vision or colorblind.

@PotsdamLamb: Hi there, the template uses a similar format to others in that category. I'm not entirely sure how I could change it to help those with colour blindness when viewing such a template. Would you mind advising me on how to do so? Thanks, Fixing26 (talk) 16:29, 10 June 2021 (UTC)
Well I guess so. I will have to bring this up on simple and see what others think as a lot of them are not using appropriate colors. I guess just leave it as is for now. Thanks, PDLTalk to me!OMG, What have I done? 16:31, 10 June 2021 (UTC)
Alright, sounds great. Fixing26 (talk) 16:34, 10 June 2021 (UTC)
Ok I started the discussion. It is at Wikipedia:Simple_talk#Colors_for_templates. Thanks, PDLTalk to me!OMG, What have I done? 16:46, 10 June 2021 (UTC)

Alright, I'll keep an eye on it. Fixing26 (talk) 16:50, 10 June 2021 (UTC)


Hey there, Fixing26! Here are a few good ideas that you can use to help making articles in the future:

  • If the article that you made is under 1,500 characters, please add the {{stub}} template into the article near the end (below the "Other websites" section, and below any categories). This will let other editors know that it is a short article that needs to be made longer.
  • If you have no idea what categories an article that you begin should go under, please add the {{uncat}} template to the article. This will let other editors know that you need help categorizing the article properly.

Thanks for reading this long message, and happy changing here on Simple English Wikipedia! (talk) 23:31, 11 June 2021 (UTC)

My mistake, I forgot to add such - I was looking to see if there was a rail-related stub template, forgot what I was looking for midway through. Thanks for informing me nevertheless Fixing26 (talk) 23:40, 11 June 2021 (UTC)

See also[change source]

Hello. When creating articles, please use "Related pages" instead of "See also". Thanks! --Ferien (talk) 13:43, 13 June 2021 (UTC)

Ah, alrighty. Fixing26 (talk) 13:44, 13 June 2021 (UTC)

Thank you![change source]

Thank you for noticing me. I really appreciate it! Cheers, Hockeycatcat (talk) 08:32, 1 July 2021 (UTC)

Haha, no problem - thanks for fixing my typo. Fixing26 (talk) 08:33, 1 July 2021 (UTC)

Question[change source]

Hello Fixing26, I am Space chinedu and I part of the Wikiprojects I would like to know the kind articles you like editing the most whether it's about space or just fine literature so that I can recommend a Wikiproject for you. But if you feel like you don't want to just let me know. But before you make a decision I would like to tell you what a Wikiproject is all about. A Wikiproject is like a small community within Wikipedia that focuses on a particular area and work together as a team to achieve what they want because one person can't do it alone so we work together to make simple wikipedia better through the projects Space chinedu (talk) 04:53, 18 July 2021 (UTC)

Hi there. I'm aware of WikiProjects, but haven't decided to join any yet. The main topics I edit/intend on editing on Wikipedia are either UK-related or related to UK and US political history. Fixing26 (talk) 10:01, 18 July 2021 (UTC)
