After you revert vandalism.... will see the user's talk page open in a pop-up window. Make sure you "warn" the user by pressing the "warn" button under the TW menu, starting with levels 1 or 2 (depending on how lax you want to be), going up to 3, then 4. If they vandalize again after a "final warning" (4) then you can send them another final warning, but please make sure to press "VIP" under the TW menu. If you know and just forgot to, OK. If you didn't know, then you do now :) Krett12 (talk) 17:42, 27 November 2015 (UTC)

@Krett12: Ah Yes! i just forgot. Thanks for your note. Are you planning to join SWMT and GS Eyes ? to fight against vandalism on cross-wiki :) .--Grind24 (talk) 17:59, 27 November 2015 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) Hi, guys. Just a couple of comments. A user talk page doesn't always open after a revert: it depends on which revert function you use. Also, the "warn" link isn't always under "TW": that depends on which skin you use. --Auntof6 (talk) 18:12, 27 November 2015 (UTC)
@Grind24: I joined the first, but I'm not a global sysop, so I'm not gonna join the second. @Auntof6: But most people use vector so that's how I give instructions. Krett12 (talk) 20:25, 27 November 2015 (UTC)

Are you looking for something to do?

I noticed that you asked another user if he/she needed help with something. If you're interested in that kind of cleanup task, you might like to look at the Check Wikipedia reports. There are often things flagged there that need to be fixed or cleaned up. Follow the links there to see the lists of things that might need fixing. (The one for missing reference lists is here, but some of those might have been fixed already.) Just be aware that not all of the things there really need to be fixed: if you're not sure, feel free to ask.

If you fix any of the things you find there, please mark them as done so that the next person who looks at them won't have to check them. Each one can be individually marked as done, or if you fix all of the items of one type, you can use the "Set all articles as done!" link.

Let me know if you have any questions. --Auntof6 (talk) 19:22, 27 November 2015 (UTC)

\o/ Thanks for your very much. I will take care of them. :D --Grind24 (talk) 20:26, 27 November 2015 (UTC)
I see you're working on some of these -- thanks! For your reference, here is the correct order of some things that go at the end of an article (all are optional, except you usually need categories):
  • Related pages section
  • References/notes/sources section(s)
  • Other websites section (sister project tags are usually included at the top of this section, but not always -- let me know if you'd like the detail on that)
  • End-of-article navboxes
  • Defaultsort
  • Categories (no blank lines between defaultsort and categories) -- there should always be categories unless all needed ones are added by templates.
  • Stub template (two blank lines before this most of the time)
Hope that helps! --Auntof6 (talk) 10:40, 28 November 2015 (UTC)
I thought nothing should be place after categories. Thanks for the informations and especially for the order. It will be very useful for me. :) .--Grind24 (talk) 11:24, 28 November 2015 (UTC)
I think they used to put the stub templates before the defaultsort and categories, but now they want them after. You'll probably see a lot of them before -- you don't have to change an article just to move them, but you can move them if you want when you're making other changes. --Auntof6 (talk) 18:13, 28 November 2015 (UTC)
Ok thanks .--Grind24 (talk) 18:44, 28 November 2015 (UTC)

Adding reference sections

Did you realize you added reference sections to some articles that don't have any references? I didn't check all the articles you changed, but two examples are DJ Jazzy Jeff and Matt Bevin. Please check all the ones you changed to be sure you added ref sections only where there were actually references. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 22:57, 27 November 2015 (UTC)

Oops  Done .--Grind24 (talk) 23:01, 27 November 2015 (UTC)

User warnings

Hi Grind24, when warning a problem user, simply move calmly through the four warning steps, in most cases they will stop. Most admins will not take action if the warnings have not been given. There are exceptions of course, especially where the vandalism can be seen as abusive, or cyberbullying, and quicker and sterner action maybe needed. --Peterdownunder (talk) 12:40, 30 November 2015 (UTC)

Certainly I skip the steps to scare the user :) , it works sometimes. But son I will follow steps 1 to 4. Thanks for your note.--Grind24 (talk) 19:40, 30 November 2015 (UTC)
I work on the theory that it takes at least two notices to catch their attention, the third one says "yes we are actually watching you" and number four says "we really will do it..." --Peterdownunder (talk) 21:39, 30 November 2015 (UTC)
Well after 4 warnings steps, In case of persistent vandalism what should I Do? makes a report or add another warning (level 4) template?.--Grind24 (talk) 05:33, 1 December 2015 (UTC)

You make a report. But, remember to leave warnings on users' talkpages when reverting vandalism. //nepaxt 19:47, 5 December 2015 (UTC)

Thanks Nepaxt .--Grind24 (talk) 19:52, 5 December 2015 (UTC)

I am VERY glad

you got rollback. In a few weeks I will try & get you admin prv. Krett12 (talk) 21:48, 8 December 2015 (UTC)

You're very welcome ;) Krett12 (talk) 05:09, 9 December 2015 (UTC)

I just had a thought

Maybe MonoBook would be a better skin for people who use Twinkle. (here's an example). I am considering it myself but would also like your opinion. Let me know on my talk page because I'm sending this message to other people as well please. Krett12 (talk) 16:30, 10 December 2015 (UTC)

I think It would be better to let users decide what its suitable for them or not. In my case I use "Vector" here and other wiki except en.wikip just to test scripts that requires necessarily the use of "monobook" ;) --Grind24 (talk) 20:17, 10 December 2015 (UTC)


If you're officially going to be up for RFA, you need to sign the candidate acceptance line. Your transclusion of it implies you accept, but you should still sign off on it officially. It's also a spot where you can make some sort of statement of candidacy if you so please. Only (talk) 17:30, 15 December 2015 (UTC)

done thanks.Regard .--Grind24 (talk) 21:08, 15 December 2015 (UTC)

Revert of user posts

Why did you use rollback on this revert? I see nothing that is obvious vandalism. I also don't see a post to the user's page explaining why you reverted his/her edits at the talk page. Only (talk) 21:20, 16 December 2015 (UTC)

I'm sorry so much, first time I do this kind of mistake, I apologies for that. I confounded the user with the vandal it is difficult to identify long-term vandal in Special:RecentChanges while using a phone..--Grind24 (talk) 15:15, 17 December 2015 (UTC)
