Hello! I'm assuming you've popped over from the English Wikipedia, so you're probably familiar with the workings of this wiki. I hope you like it here and decide to stay on! Here's a few links to help you adjust:

There's lots to do here. Most of it is filling in the gaps where articles are necessary, which you can do by simplifying from enWP, but have a look around and see what you'd like to do. Thanks for joining us, and you know how to contact me if you need a hand :) Cheers, sonia♫♪ 11:33, 6 July 2010 (UTC)

Tagging[change source]

Hi, Fridae, I'm glad to see you're becoming active here and I hope you have fun. :) It's just one thing about your tagging that concerns me a bit: much as I appreciate your good faith efforts, I don't think it would help our wiki that much. You see, this is a small place that's still relatively new, and if we began tagging articles like that, most of our articles would get tagged...without anyone to help clean them up and remove those tags. I think it would actually be better to try to really expand/make better one article than tag twenty articles. What do you think? Kindly, —Clementina talk 12:11, 4 September 2010 (UTC)

Oh, I didn't know that this wiki was that small. I thought there would have been some backlog task force to deal with that. Hmm, now that you put it that way I think I should stop before this whole wiki is tagged. Fridae'§Doom | Tea and biscuits? 12:13, 4 September 2010 (UTC)

question[change source]

Why does your signature point to a non-registered username? fr33kman 22:12, 4 September 2010 (UTC)

Whoops I used the same sig on enwiki. I'll fix it up. Fridae'§Doom | Tea and biscuits? 22:38, 4 September 2010 (UTC)
:) figured it was that fr33kman 13:16, 5 September 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, thanks for reminding me :) Fridae'§Doom | Tea and biscuits? 04:10, 6 September 2010 (UTC)

AutoEd[change source]

Give me a list of pages and I'll import them for you, if you'd like. It makes attribution easier. Although, might I ask what AutoEd actually is? sonia 08:07, 2 October 2010 (UTC)

AutoEd is an automated tool that fixes up common wikiformatting errors, eg. [[Humor|humorous]] to [[Humor]]ous and so on, it turns — and – into an actual dash, raw HTML tables into the corresponding wikitables, basically it makes things easier.
en:Wikipedia:AutoEd/extrabreaks.js, en:Wikipedia:AutoEd/fullwidth.js, en:Wikipedia:AutoEd/headlines.js, en:Wikipedia:AutoEd/htmltowikitext.js, en:Wikipedia:AutoEd/isbn.js, en:Wikipedia:AutoEd/links.js, en:Wikipedia:AutoEd/tablestowikitext.js, en:Wikipedia:AutoEd/templates.js, en:Wikipedia:AutoEd/unicodecontrolchars.js, en:Wikipedia:AutoEd/unicodehex.js, en:Wikipedia:AutoEd/unicodify.js, en:Wikipedia:AutoEd/whitespace.js, en:Wikipedia:AutoEd/wikilinks.js, en:Wikipedia:AutoEd/wikichecker.js, en:User:GregU/dashes.js and en:User:Ash/tidyCitations.js
But could you move the last two into project namespace instead? Cheers, Ғяіᴆaз'§Đøøм Champagne? 08:16, 2 October 2010 (UTC)
Sure. Pictogram voting wait.svg Doing... sonia 08:17, 2 October 2010 (UTC)
Cheers Sonia, many thanks :) Regards, Ғяіᴆaз'§Đøøм Champagne? 08:28, 2 October 2010 (UTC)
No probs.  Done, except for the last page, which doesn't exist. You will need to change any links within the scripts to User:GregU/dashes.js to Wikipedia:AutoEd/dashes.js , and I think that's it. Cheers. sonia 08:32, 2 October 2010 (UTC)
Ok thanks Sonia! :) Regards, Ғяіᴆaз'§Đøøм Champagne? 08:37, 2 October 2010 (UTC)

sorry[change source]

Log, per policy. Sorry about that, you weren't to know. We don't allow fair-use images here. sonia 10:42, 2 October 2010 (UTC)

It's alright, I tried finding the appropriate policies, gah everything is so new to me. I can't upload fair use images to Commons either. Oh well there's plenty more fish in the sea :) Thanks and regards, Ғяіᴆaз'§Đøøм Champagne? 10:50, 2 October 2010 (UTC)
I just upload File:Hubble.jpeg I couldn't find the relevant image policy :/ so is it possible to have an image with no copyright information, I assume that since it's an academic source this would be allowed, that or OTRS needs to be notified. Ғяіᴆaз'§Đøøм Champagne? 10:57, 2 October 2010 (UTC)
1. No images are allowed to be uploaded locally at all, as per the links in the deletion log I linked;
2. No copyright information- like text, just because it has no copyright information doesn't mean you can copy and paste it over.
You'll have to find one that's Commons-eligible or already on Commons if you want to use it, I'm sorry. sonia 11:04, 2 October 2010 (UTC)
None exist at Commons, only images taken by the Hubble Space Telescope were what I found. Thanks for the heads up. Regards, Ғяіᴆaз'§Đøøм Champagne? 11:07, 2 October 2010 (UTC)

Dear Fridae[change source]

Clementina has given you some cookies! Now enjoy them!

Dear Friade, this is a two-folded message. I'm so glad to see you getting active around here, helping out, and even making new articles! :) You did a great job of simplifying Edwin Hubble (shorter sentences, Basic English, easy, accessible prose = simple). For short articles, you can add {{Stub}} to show that it is short so others can help make it longer later. :) Please drop me a line if you need help with anything. Enjoy your cookies! ;) Love, —Clementina talk 11:08, 2 October 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the cookies Clementina :), I'll do my best. I thought the English was a bit too hard, scientific terms are hard to explain in Simple English :S Regards, Ғяіᴆaз'§Đøøм Champagne? 11:15, 2 October 2010 (UTC)

Avatar[change source]

To VGA? Well, if it is so good, why not? Nataly8 (talk) 10:55, 9 October 2010 (UTC)

Well, I first wanted to do the articles about the episodes of the Avatar: The Last Airbender VGA and after start to think about the main article. Thanks for the comments. Nataly8 (talk) 11:04, 9 October 2010 (UTC)

I think it'd make it, if anything you should nominate it you're one of the most active contributors to the article. Regards, Ғяіᴆaз'§Đøøм Champagne? 02:53, 10 October 2010 (UTC)

Edits[change source]

Please look at that IP's contrib history. He keeps changing dates and numbers for all kinds of people that don't correspond with enWP. Thank you. --Chemicalinterest (talk) 14:57, 24 November 2010 (UTC)

Yes, I see what you mean. Ғяіᴆaз'§Đøøм Champagne? 15:02, 24 November 2010 (UTC)

Hey, I know you! Warrior (talk) 03:33, 25 November 2010 (UTC)

I don't think I've seen you around. Perhaps you have me mixed up for someone else. Ғяіᴆaз'§Đøøм Champagne? 07:52, 25 November 2010 (UTC)

Double redirect[change source]

Hello M.O.X, noticed you seem to have a double redirect (I assume you are also User:Fridae'sDoom and User:Ancient Apparition?). Just to let you know if you could alter the first page to redirect to the last one so we can fix the double redirect. Thanks muchly :) Regards, Ydennek (talk) 12:05, 5 August 2011 (UTC)

Sorry I didn't respond earlier, yes that was my first name. Again my apologies. —James (TalkContribs)7:39pm 09:39, 7 October 2011 (UTC)

Gentle nudge...[change source]

You have been around a while, I respect your work. Please be ever so careful to speak about the actions instead of the actor. I know the subject is heated, I do. Warmly, Jon@talk:~$ 02:42, 20 November 2011 (UTC)

Very well, I will alter my remarks to be less... pernicious. —James (TalkContribs)12:49pm 02:49, 20 November 2011 (UTC)
