Welcome[change source]

Hello! I noticed that you may have come here from another Wikipedia, so you know a little about how things work here. I hope you like it here and decide to stay! Here are some links to help you adjust:

There's a lot to do here. Most of it is writing articles that do not exist yet, which you can do by translating from other Wikipedias, but have a look around and see what you want to do. Thanks for joining us, and you know how to contact me if you need any help. Hiàn (talk) 01:36, 14 July 2019 (UTC)

July 2019[change source]

Hello, 大诺史. It looks like an article you created was derived from the English Wikipedia or another version of Wikipedia. If that is indeed the case, please make sure you add some form of attribution, either in your change summary or on the article's talk page. This must be done, even for derivative works, or the article will be deleted in time. More instructions on how to do this are at Wikipedia:Transwiki attribution. Thank you. Zaxxon0 (talk) 03:53, 14 July 2019 (UTC)

@Zaxxon0: Is it something like this? 大诺史 (talk) 03:55, 14 July 2019 (UTC)
{{translated page}} is actually the template to use, we don't use enwp based anymore. Zaxxon0 (talk) 04:00, 14 July 2019 (UTC)

Your userpage[change source]

Hello! Would you like me to delete your userpage for you? It was created maliciously by another editor and currently is blank. Best regards, Vermont (talk) 15:58, 24 August 2019 (UTC)

@Vermont: Yea, delete it. Thanks. (Talk/留言/토론/Discussion) 16:05, 24 August 2019 (UTC)

Re:copied and pasted from the main English Wikipedia[change source]

Understood. I will not do that again. But you have to change the title at least. It will be Forces Goal 2030, not Navy Goal 2030. It is completely different article otherwise. Also, the information given in the article is backdated. -User:AzfarShams(User talk:AzfarShams) 2:44 PM, 07 September 2019 (UTC)

@AzfarShams: I believe that your account does not have any restrictions on moving pages (i.e. you can move it yourself). Also, I believe I only informed you about not copying directly from other wikis. You can still update the page accordingly. (Talk/留言/토론/Discussion) 14:56, 7 September 2019 (UTC)

Nomination[change source]

Hello 大诺史! I have noticed that you are a good user on this website. For this reason, I would like to nominate you for adminship. I think you do a good job undoing vandalism! Let me know if you accept or decline. And if you accept, I will create the RFA page. Thanks! --Wyatt2049 | (Talk) or (Stalk) 16:59, 8 September 2019 (UTC)

Meh, its too early for it. Thanks anyways :) (Talk/留言/토론/Discussion) 17:02, 8 September 2019 (UTC)
Okay then, here is a Barnstar!

Thank you for all of the vandalism that you revert. Also, thank you for all of the additions of the little things, like external links! Wyatt2049 | (Talk) or (Stalk) 17:04, 8 September 2019 (UTC)
@Wyatt2049: Thank you. (Talk/留言/토론/Discussion) 17:31, 8 September 2019 (UTC)
I do think we need more admins, but I've asked every active editor and they all say no, arg... Computer Fizz (talk) 18:50, 8 September 2019 (UTC)
@Computer Fizz: If the community is fine with me being an admin, I wouldn’t mind. I said it was still early as I didn’t even expect myself to be an admin here. (Talk/留言/토론/Discussion) 02:20, 9 September 2019 (UTC)
well, alright. I spend the next couple days compiling stuff then i'll open an rfa for you :) Computer Fizz (talk) 02:22, 9 September 2019 (UTC)
Created page. Computer Fizz (talk) 21:11, 9 September 2019 (UTC)
I personally wouldn't accept it. It is extremely unlikely to pass as you have only been active here about two months. The very minimum is usually more than 3 months, with a lot of editors wanting to see over a year. -DJSasso (talk) 01:52, 10 September 2019 (UTC)
In regards to Comptuer Fizz mentioning most say no, it is often because being an admin isn't just about fighting vandalism (which I have seen you making comments that imply you think that is only what being an admin is about). That is actually the least important part of being an admin. The important parts of being an admin take a good chunk of time learning the community and policies and in some ways the unwritten things that the community tends to do and believe even if they are not written down. The mediating between users etc. The things that take a good long time being in the community and being involved in discussions on Simple Talk and elsewhere etc to figure out. So a lot of people either don't feel ready or don't want the responsibility. If you just want to fight vandals you can do that almost as well not being an admin. The only extra tool we really have in that regard is the block. -DJSasso (talk) 02:00, 10 September 2019 (UTC)
that's something i'd like to move away from though. admin is supposed to just be a dude with a mop. Computer Fizz (talk) 07:32, 13 September 2019 (UTC)
@Djsasso: I agree with you about me being a newbie too and have a lot more to learn. But I would like to keep the nom to gain some feedbacks so I can better improve myself. (Talk/留言/토론/Discussion) 03:12, 10 September 2019 (UTC)
Yep go accept it then. I was just warning you, because going through an RfA and getting rejected can be a bit painful. -DJSasso (talk) 03:18, 10 September 2019 (UTC)
Alright then. Good luck! --Wyatt2049 | (Talk) or (Stalk) 11:06, 10 September 2019 (UTC)

A Cup of tea for you![change source]

Everything Stops for tea.jpg A Cup of tea for you!
Congratulations on your RFA, even if you did not win. You still are a great vandalism reverter, and I think that you could be an admin within a few more months!--Wyatt2049 | (Talk) or (Stalk) 13:37, 11 September 2019 (UTC)

BJP[change source]

Hey! So I was trying to edit this page (BJP) and I wanted to link the page with that of its national president (Amit Shah) but couldn't. I tried linking it, but it seems you reverted my changes. What else can I do to link the article with that of Amit Shah?

@SHEHZAAG: Please do not link pages here to the English Wikipedia. Either create a simple article or leave it red. (Talk/留言/토론/Discussion) 14:48, 21 September 2019 (UTC)

Resetting talk pages[change source]

I've noticed you done this sometimes when they are vandalized - you may want to try User:DannyS712/Reset talk.js --23:37, 22 September 2019 (UTC)

@DannyS712: Oh wow thanks! (Talk/留言/토론/Discussion) 06:47, 23 September 2019 (UTC)
@DannyS712: Does the script reset it to just {{talk page}} or restoring it to the page's previous content before vandalism. (Talk/留言/토론/Discussion) 09:01, 28 September 2019 (UTC)

oops[change source]

Sorry for the accidental block I made while trying to block a vandal.--BRP ever 13:02, 7 October 2019 (UTC)

@BRPever: Its ok :) (Talk/留言/토론/Discussion) 13:18, 7 October 2019 (UTC)

help[change source]

hello i'm writting a new article in simple.wikipedia Chedi Amir. I can not add references. could you help me? I entered the security code before the page publication several times but the page doesn't want to publish (talk) 04:59, 10 October 2019 (UTC)

please ,I want to keep and confirm this article Chedi Amir it is an eligible article . Could you help me thank you (talk) 05:24, 10 October 2019 (UTC) If you have read our policies about notability and believe you can prove it's notable, it can be converted into an RfD, where the community will spend one week discussing whether or not it is notable, and you can participate too. However, this article is going to need to have a lot of changes before it meets all of our standards (not just notability). Is that okay with you? Computer Fizz (talk) 05:31, 10 October 2019 (UTC)

thank you very much (talk) 05:41, 10 October 2019 (UTC)

I am a new editor in wikipedia from Tunisia thank you very much for helping (talk) 02:48, 14 October 2019 (UTC)

Edit warring with LTAs[change source]

Hi. You don't need to edit war with them, especially if it's not on a highly-visible mainspace page. See WP:DENY, and also it's a waste of time. Regardless of whether you continue reverting or not, when an administrator responds and blocks the account the result will be the same. Best, Vermont (talk) 15:16, 16 October 2019 (UTC)

Ok, noted :) (Talk/留言/토론/Discussion) 15:19, 16 October 2019 (UTC)

About that email[change source]

I forgot about simplewikt for a bit and at this point I'm not sure I can continue at this rate, so if you'd be okay with RfA-ing over there, it'd be much appreciated (apologies if you've changed your mind or this is earlier than expected). Hiàn (talk) 04:28, 27 October 2019 (UTC)

@Hiàn: I'm currently busy for the next few days so I'll do it soon. (Talk/留言/토론/Discussion) 15:09, 27 October 2019 (UTC)
@Hiàn: Had some spare time, so  Done :) (Talk/留言/토론/Discussion) 02:49, 30 October 2019 (UTC)
Much appreciated. Hope you can hold down the fort better than I had. Hiàn (talk) 04:03, 30 October 2019 (UTC)

Maria Fire[change source]

thank you for the help. (talk) 13:32, 7 November 2019 (UTC)

my edit[change source]

sorry you must have edited before me with the delete tag. CarbosCruize (talk) 16:03, 7 November 2019 (UTC)

@CarbosCruize: Yea, but its ok. (Talk/留言/토론/Discussion) 16:05, 7 November 2019 (UTC)

Romania stubs[change source]

This stub type has not been approved as far as I can see, so I have removed it. If you think we should have this type, please discuss at Wikipedia talk:Simple Stub Project first. --Auntof6 (talk) 08:38, 8 December 2019 (UTC)

Will do when I turn a few more red links blue. Found a bunch of em. (Talk/留言/토론/Discussion) 13:08, 8 December 2019 (UTC)

User talk:[change source]

I removed your warning from this page. WP:Introduction is okay to use as a sandbox page as long as they do so below the comment. Also you should probably update your signature to your new name. :) Computer Fizz (talk) 18:20, 17 December 2019 (UTC)

@Computer Fizz: Ah yes.. Thanks for that :) and I’ve updated my sig. Minorax (talk) 18:23, 17 December 2019 (UTC)

MRT line article changes[change source]

Hi, Minorax. I noticed that you changed the formatting for font color on some MRT line articles. In general, the text of articles is not colored because it can cause issues. (That is explained at en:Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Text formatting#In prose, which says, among other things, "Prose text should never be manually colored.") Because of that, I removed the formatting altogether. If you change any more of these articles, you might want to do the same. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 08:19, 9 August 2020 (UTC)

Strange Days changed to Strange Days (movie)[change source]

For what reason was Strange Days changed into Strange Days (movie)? Can you please clarify? Angela Kate Maureen 14:53, 2 September 2020 (UTC)

@Tropical Storm Angela: To follow en:Strange Days (film). --Minorax (talk) 14:55, 2 September 2020 (UTC)

Question[change source]

Can I ask you a question about babel userbox? --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 02:03, 10 October 2020 (UTC)

@Thegooduser: Sure. --Minorax (talk) 04:23, 10 October 2020 (UTC)
Are there any userboxes, that say that you can speak and understand Cantonese, but cannot read or write? --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 23:08, 10 October 2020 (UTC)
@Thegooduser: Not that I know of. --Minorax (talk) 03:17, 11 October 2020 (UTC)
Is it possible to make one? (Example, you write that I can only speak and understand Cantonese in Cantonese, and I ask DannyS712 to make it into a userbox [If that's okay]) --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 22:03, 11 October 2020 (UTC)
@Thegooduser: I'm a yue-1 so I'm not really sure if I've translated this correctly. 我只會講同聼懂廣東話。 --Minorax (talk) 12:38, 12 October 2020 (UTC)
Thanks! --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 22:31, 12 October 2020 (UTC)
