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)

Wikipedia Asian Month 2018[change source]

Hey Zhangj1079/Hiàn,

My name is Yu Lun, and I’m from the Wikipedia Asian Month International Team. It’s a great pleasure to meet you and see the effort you have put into the previous edition of WAM. Thank you! On a side note, have you received your postcard? If you have yet to receive the postcard, I can help you to check our records.

We are currently preparing the 2018 edition of the Wikipedia Asian Month and would like to check with you if you are still willing to organize the WAM on the Simple English Wikipedia? On behalf of the WAM team, I will be the liaison to Simple English Wikipedia this year. So if you have any questions, requests or ideas, feel free to contact me directly.

Meanwhile, as a WAM organizer, we will put you on this mailing list ( that is exclusively for organizers only. We will keep emails from that list to a minimal. But feel free to let us know if you wish to not be subscribed. Here is a survey we would like you to fill in ( This survey will ensure that we will be able to better help you in WAM 2018. I’m looking forward to seeing you at this year’s event!

--Yulun5566 (talk) 07:05, 30 June 2018 (UTC) on behalf of WAM International Team

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)

re;PLUTO[change source]

HI just wanted to say the washington post reference and cjob proves it — Preceding unsigned comment added by IAU101 (talkcontribs) 20:06, 9 September 2018 (UTC)

@IAU101: Hi, could you list some links, I honestly can't find the specific news sources. Hiàn (talk) 20:12, 9 September 2018 (UTC)

Request[change source]

Hi, Hian. I'm requesting for admin and beauricat rights. Plus, the article Maria Laroco needs protecting from vandalism and any future vandalism. Cheers!;) Fiery3 (talk) 16:26, 13 October 2018 (UTC)

Hi Fiery3. As of right now, you will not be granted any advanced permissions given the poor reverts and that you have not edited here for a long period of time. As for Maria Laroco, there is no need for semi-protection right now. Hiàn (talk) 16:29, 13 October 2018 (UTC)
Hiàn, no individual user should tell another user that they will not be given admin or 'crat rights. You can say you think it's unlikely, but any user has the right to request those permissions through the proper channels. @Fiery3: It is very unlikely that you would be given the rights you mention, or any other rights, because of some of the edits you made here, and because you are a brand new user here. When you are ready to request rights, please do so using the processes we have for that instead of asking on a user talk page. Thank you. --Auntof6 (talk) 21:20, 13 October 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for the reminder, Auntof6. Hiàn (talk) 21:26, 13 October 2018 (UTC)

How long do I have to wait until I get admin rights? What's your purpose on this wiki? What do you do here? If you are an experienced editor, will you kindly show me around and tell me what you know that would make me a better editor? Fiery3 (talk) 16:35, 13 October 2018 (UTC)

Hi Fiery3, there is no set time limit to get the sysop rights but the general time period tends to be six months to a year of activity. Adminship is not based off time, it is based off experience and the ability to interpret consensus. I primarily do anti-vandalism work and article creation here. I am willing to mentor you for the time being - I'd like to note I'm not an admin here however and if you'd like a mentor with the admin tools, I highly suggest BRPever or Vermont. Hiàn (talk) 17:02, 13 October 2018 (UTC)

Thank you!;) Fiery3 (talk) 17:18, 13 October 2018 (UTC)

Have you got a test place? Fiery3 (talk) 20:39, 13 October 2018 (UTC)

As in a website for testing articles and code? Hiàn (talk) 20:40, 13 October 2018 (UTC)

WAM Organizers Update[change source]

Hi WAM Organizer! Hopefully, everything works just fine so far! Need Help Button, post in any language is fine

  • Here are some recent updates and clarification of rules for you, and as always, let me know if you have any idea, thought or question.
    • Additional souvenirs (e.g. postcard) will be sent to Ambassadors and active organizers.
    • A participant's article count is combined on all language Wikipedias they have contributed to
    • Only Wikipedia Asian Month on Wikipedia or Wikivoyage projects count (no WikiQuote, etc.)
    • The global top 3 article count will only be eligible on Wikipedias where the WAM article requirement is at least 3,000 bytes and 300 words.
    • If your community accepts an extension for articles, you should set up a page and allow participants to submit their contributions there.
    • In case of redirection not allowed submitting in Fountain tool, a workaround is to delete it, copy and submit again. Or a submission page can be used too.
    • Please make sure enforce the rules, such as proper references, notability, and length.
    • International organizers will double check the top 3 users' accepted articles, so if your articles are not fulfilling the rules, they might be disqualified. We don't want it happened so please don't let us make such a decision.

Please feel free to contact me and WAM team on meta talk page, send me an email by Email this User or chat with me on facebook. For some languages, the activity for WAM is very less, If you need any help please reach out to us, still, 12 more days left for WAM, Please encourage your community members to take part in it.

If you no longer want to receive the WAM organizer message, you can remove your username at this page.

Best Wishes,
Sailesh Patnaik

Hi @Iamskylord:. I haven't went through all of the sources you listed, but a look at the top 10-15 links are either not verifiable or only provide a passing mention of the subject. References in Wikipedia need to be verifiable. As it stands those events are mostly WP:1E; very few of the sources actually establish notability. Numbers don't matter here, we need sources that establish notability, whether they have one million subscribers or ten. Hiàn (talk) 17:34, 8 December 2018 (UTC)
