Hi Griff, I haven't seen you around in a little while. I hope you're doing alright. --Ferien (talk) 21:19, 22 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks for the check in Ferien. My work situation significantly changed and the amount of free time for Simple English Wikipedia has unfortunately decreased to near zero (I'm writing this message on a mini-holiday). Everything is well with me and I hope to make more time for the project as we enter the winter season and my work projects slow down. Griff (talk) 02:21, 9 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Glad to see you back Griff :)— *Fehufangą✉ Talk page 03:36, 9 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Question about the essay creation request[change source]

I checked the essay creation request from you at Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/2022/Category:American people by ethnic or national origin. I'll try to take time to make that at my user page space. Although, since I never wrote an essay at any wikimedia project, please let me ask the following things:

  • The essay you wanted is an essay that summarises the various discussions that we can use in the future. Does this mean I'm not allowed to include my own thoughts?
  • What kind of things should be included in my essay to be used in the future?
  • Am I allowed to use any style that I prefer, or is there a specific method that you prefer?
  • If you are too busy to answer me, should I take this question to WP:ST?

I'm sorry to bother you, but I'm looking forward to hear some tips from you. MathXplore (talk) 07:58, 10 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Perhaps you have already gotten responses to these or taken them to ST, but here's my response:
  • If different view points are to be included, I would make clear which ones received what levels of support, and if you are moving one into project space, and your view has not been already been discussed, you may want to present it first.
  • When you say "what kind of things", what are you trying to discuss or include in your essay?
  • I think that the best examples of essays would be found on other projects, and using similar styles. If you would like me to provide some, I can.
Thanks for volunteering to help. Griff (talk) 01:05, 23 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Just to clarify[change source]

Just to clarify, I in no way am inferring that you have issues with Can and Must. I am only pointing out that some do have issues in that reqard and need their hands held when trying to understand what something says. Odd statement on a wiki dedicated to explaining things so it is easier for people to understand what is being said.. but still. It is common to expect better of the people in the non-article spaces than the people reading the articles. Pure Evil (talk) 22:32, 4 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
