Welcome[change source]

Hello! I am assuming you have come over from the English Wikipedia, so you are probably familiar with the way this wiki works. I hope you like it here and decide to stay. Here are a few links to help you adjust:

There is much to do here. For example, there are a lot of articles that do not exist yet, which you can bring over from the English Wikipedia and simplify. Do have a look around and see what you would like to do. Thank you for joining us, and you know how to contact me if you need help. Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 18:49, 21 April 2020 (UTC)

A barnstar for you[change source]

For your near-daily small updates to COVID-19 pandemic. Small improvements add up. Darkfrog24 (talk) 22:02, 20 May 2020 (UTC)
@Darkfrog24: Thank you very much for the barnstar. Interstellarity (talk) 22:33, 20 May 2020 (UTC)

Hey, I didn’t know you were over on simplewiki![change source]

In case your wondering who I am, I’m the formerly semi-LTA who operated the en:User:Total Eclipse 2017 account that you ran into. I never actually thought I’d encounter either you or User:Puddleglum2.0 an simple wiki, and yet I’ve encountered both in two days! What a small world wiki, eh? Regards, --sithjarjar666 (my profile | my contribs | speak to me) 20:04, 17 June 2020 (UTC)

@SithJarJar666: I mainly contribute on the English Wikipedia although I sometimes contribute here as well. You might want to read Wikipedia:An English Wikipedian's guide for how this project is different from the English Wikipedia. Interstellarity (talk) 20:08, 17 June 2020 (UTC)
I did read that page and I learned a lot about how this wiki works. A lot of things seem pretty similar to en.wp though, so it’s not too hard to get used to this one. Regards, --sithjarjar666 (my profile | my contribs | speak to me) 20:23, 17 June 2020 (UTC)

Moves[change source]

Just a reminder that we follow the naming conventions unless the language isn't Simple English. Simply removing the country wouldn't be considered making a title simpler. -Djsasso (talk) 11:54, 23 June 2020 (UTC)

Just realized these moves were made before you got a response on that discussion so I guess you already know. -Djsasso (talk) 12:00, 23 June 2020 (UTC)
Hello Djsasso and thanks for reaching out. I was told by another editor on simple talk here the same thing you are telling me so you are right. Regards, Interstellarity (talk) 12:36, 23 June 2020 (UTC)
Yeah that is what I meant by my second comment, I thought you made the moves after he told you, but then I realized it was before. My bad. It is all good. -Djsasso (talk) 12:38, 23 June 2020 (UTC)

About the recent redirect[change source]

Hello, are you sure the user is the right user for redirecting? I don't see confirmation it is they who create the account, care to elaborate? Thanks. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 14:13, 27 November 2020 (UTC)

Hello Camouflaged Mirage. I created this redirect because this is the romanized version of their username. They have stated this on their user page and Google Translate also has that translation as well. I hope this helps. Interstellarity (talk) 14:16, 27 November 2020 (UTC)
I think the user isn't this user, there is an user by the roman name. So I don't think it will be good for the redirect as the roman name and the japanese name isn't the same user as far as I can see. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 14:18, 27 November 2020 (UTC)
I will ping @つがる: to see if this redirect is OK with them. They should have the final say on what to do with it. Interstellarity (talk) 14:20, 27 November 2020 (UTC)
I mean that Special:CentralAuth/Tsugaru =/= Special:CentralAuth/つがる and the 1st account isn't related to the 2nd account, why do we redirect the 1st account to the 2nd account? Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 14:23, 27 November 2020 (UTC)
@Camouflaged Mirage: Here is an example on enwiki: Jimmy Wales redirects to Jimmy's user page even though that account is unrelated to Jimmy's account. Do you think that redirect should be deleted or should it be kept? Interstellarity (talk) 18:52, 27 November 2020 (UTC)
Here is the difference: Notice that the Jimmy Wales account is an impersonator of Jimbo Wales, and is blocked as such. However, this tsugaru account is a good faith contributor in enwp and jawp which had just left the project. Who are we to create their userpage? Which policy allows us to create userpages for good faith contributors? Let alone a redirect to a completely unrelated account. In addition, tsugaru is a relatively unknown person, unlike Jimbo. So that redirect is perfectly fine as a doppelganger account and it's Jimbo, here it's just a normal user which clearly doesn't warrant this. In additon, I find it puzzling about the googling, let me now say that there is a user with a chinese account name which google translate is Interstellarity, and then I put a redirect on your userpage to that user? Is this acceptable? Since you linked this conversation as a wait statement, this is sort of a deletion issue, your arguments seems like WHYOTHERSTUFFEXIST while quoting Jimmy Wales. Hope you understand where I am coming from. Since this had been contested, I will convert the QD to RFD. Regards, Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 19:39, 27 November 2020 (UTC)
Hope you can comment there to keep everything in one place, I had copied all the above into the RFD also. :) Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 20:14, 27 November 2020 (UTC)
Thanks for clarifying. If this redirect gets deleted, I will not object. Interstellarity (talk) 21:44, 27 November 2020 (UTC)
Interesting case also for me, I had never encountered such a redirect in my editing life, didn't know there's such cases. Maybe here in simple we try to keep things simple, so we don't have so many such redirects around locally. Have a nice day :D Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 12:37, 28 November 2020 (UTC)

RfD nomination of User:Tsugaru[change source]

An editor has requested deletion of User:Tsugaru, an article you created. We appreciate your changes, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article meets Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in the nomination (see also "What Wikipedia is not").

Please comment on the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/2020/User:Tsugaru and please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also change the article during the discussion to address the nominator's concerns. But you should not remove the requests for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate. Thank you very much.
