Confusion in the previous message- WAM[change source]

Hello again, I believe the earlier message has created some confusion. If you have already submitted the details in the Google form, it has been accepted, you don't need to submit it again. The earlier reminder is for those who haven't yet submitted their Google form or if they any alternate way to provide their address. I apologize for creating the confusion. Thanks-Sailesh Patnaik

Thank you[change source]

Thank you for your welcome. I have, in fact, been registered for nearly 14 years, but while working on researching Eurovision Song Contest entries, I noticed a shocking number of grammatical errors in the Simple English articles. Figured fixing them was the only way to eliminate my frustration! Bobo192 (talk) 00:40, 8 January 2018 (UTC)

No problem. I simply welcomed you as you had not been welcomed yet. Keep up the good work both here and on en! Hiàn talk 00:42, 8 January 2018 (UTC)

Quick delete requests[change source]

Hi, Hiàn. Please watch the syntax when you add a QD template to a page. For example, a recent one you added looked like this:

{{qd|db|1=Moved to the Simple English Wiktionary.|editor=Hiàn|date=04:07, 9 February 2018 (UTC)}}

If you look, you see that there are two first-position parameters: the "db", and the one that starts with "1=". The "db" is actually not needed: "db is a redirect to the QD template. I noticed these because I watch Category:Pages using duplicate arguments in template calls and the articles you QD sometimes show up there.

Not a big deal. I just thought you might want to know. --Auntof6 (talk) 06:34, 9 February 2018 (UTC)

Ah. Thanks for notifying me. I use Twinkle, so I was unaware. I'll keep that in mind. hiàn 21:05, 9 February 2018 (UTC)

Countries at the Winter Paralympics[change source]

Hi Hiàn.

I am working on some of the countries at the Paralympic Games articles on my user space. A few of them now have more content. These include:

They are not done and I am going to write more on them. Any improvements to them would be great. Please tell me if you do so I can try to improve my Simple English writing by looking at other good Simple English writing.

North Korea has all the information it needs to be main space ready. --LauraHale (talk) 12:32, 13 February 2018 (UTC)

VIP[change source]

Please give the blocking admin some time to comment on requests before clearing entries at WP:VIP. The admin might want to say something other than just that a user was blocked. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 22:29, 18 February 2018 (UTC)

I self-reverted to allow the user time to comment on the RfD. Anyways, I'll keep that in mind. hiàn 22:30, 18 February 2018 (UTC)

Wikipedia Asian Month[change source]

Hi, Hiàn. I was wondering if you got your postcard yet for participating in this event. I haven't gotten mine. --Auntof6 (talk) 20:33, 27 May 2018 (UTC)

@Auntof6: Hello Auntof6. Yes, I did, in fact, receive my postcard, on 6 April. I do suggest sending Fantasticfears an email - the post does take a while. Hiàn // talk 21:05, 27 May 2018 (UTC)

Hi @Yulun5566:, indeed I have received my postcard, and am still interested in organising Wikipedia Asian Month for simple (though I'm not sure if the community still wants to do it). Feel free to add my name to the mailing list, I think I will find it useful. Regards, Hiàn (talk/editing on mobile account.) 13:25, 30 June 2018 (UTC)
