User talk:165.166.63.1[change source]

You warned this user for vandalism, and told them to use the sandbox for testing. However, they did use the sandbox. They were apparently testing linking to a subpage by using a slash, like this: /Archive 2, when they created the page Wikipedia:Sandbox/amog. Is that really vandalism?

I did not notice that, although in my personal opinion, testing should be restricted to the Sandbox page, as that is the only page actively cleaned by Hazard Bot. Interestingly enough, the IP's only edits were 4 months ago to test the same thing. Certainly raises some questions. Either way, thanks for bringing it to my attention!

Hmm, yeah that's a bit strange. Lights and freedom (talk) 06:26, 29 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Disney articles[change source]

I counted 22 articles created today, 19 were created in the last 30 minutes. It'd be too much work to clean them up, and nuking would delete the pages that have been trimmed/simplified, so here's a list of the articles not yet trimmed:

For a grand total of 17 (all created within the last 30 minutes). don't want to flood RC with QD-tagging all of them. Thank you! — *Fehufangą✉ Talk page 10:50, 30 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

If they havent been worked on by the time I get to the airport later today, I'll delete them for my flight. Thanks! Griff (talk) 14:28, 30 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
 Done - thanks for bringing them all to my attention. Griff (talk) 15:27, 30 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

question[change source]

Hello Griff!

Can non-admins respond to semi-protected edit requests? I am not sure what the policy is here on this... Tsugaru let's talk! :) 21:07, 7 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Sorry I took so long. Yes, they can, it's just like any other help request on ST. Obviously, you take responsibility for the changes you make. Thanks for asking! Griff (talk) 23:38, 10 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Youssef Rzouga[change source]

Hi. I noted in the Deletion Review that Youssef Rzouga's article was left as no consensus to undelete. I found this to be odd since there was a clear consensus to keep the article at RfD, which was why it ended up at Deletion Review in the first place because it was deleted against policy. I don't know the person who the article was about but I suppose I am expected to make a new one, and do I have to make it in user space first? None of my other articles have been deleted or nominated for deletion so is it okay if I just start it in mainspace or do I need to create it in userspace first? Happy to be guided. Thank you. Blissyu2 (talk) 15:28, 22 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

I recommend creating the article in user space and having it reviewed by someone else to ensure there are no notability concerns prior to moving to article space. As a reminder, G4 applies to articles with "same or similar content", but if the article is sufficiently re-worked and no policy concerns are raised, it shouldn't be a problem. Thanks for reaching out, Griff (talk) 02:47, 24 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
