Why is the rum always gone?[change source]

Feeling a bit piratical?Β :) --Auntof6 (talk) 22:38, 5 January 2021 (UTC)[]

@Auntof6: Only always. Besides, rum is my favorite drink... and it always seems to disappear in my house. By the way, have you any limes? Operator873talkconnect 22:39, 5 January 2021 (UTC)[]
Here ya go. --Auntof6 (talk) 22:49, 5 January 2021 (UTC)[]

(talk page stalker) Water is my drink of choice ;) --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 00:51, 7 January 2021 (UTC)[]
That goes well with lime, too. Maybe Operator will share some. --Auntof6 (talk) 05:08, 7 January 2021 (UTC)[]

Your userpage[change source]

So, I'm using a dark theme vector skin, however it makes all black on your userpage white, and vice versa. Is there a code to fix this on my end? --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 01:57, 10 January 2021 (UTC)[]

The reverting of my Ohio adjustments[change source]

I did not realize that the post I edited was for Simple English Wikipedia. Thank you for reverting it back to simplicity.

Hey Operator[change source]

The vandal warner won't work, do you know why? --MartinLutheran (talk) 00:09, 13 January 2021 (UTC)[]

Seems to be working for me. Operator873talkconnect 00:11, 13 January 2021 (UTC)[]
How do you use it? --MartinLutheran (talk) 00:20, 13 January 2021 (UTC)[]
What are you trying to use? Perhaps there is some documentation you can review. Operator873talkconnect 00:21, 13 January 2021 (UTC)[]
Vandal Warner --MartinLutheran (talk) 00:22, 13 January 2021 (UTC)[]

Stub Tagging[change source]

is this a justified use? --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 02:30, 15 January 2021 (UTC)[]

I don't see an issue. Operator873talkconnect 02:31, 15 January 2021 (UTC)[]

Could you help[change source]

  • Hey Mate! Can you help me figure out some code on an userbox? --Tsugaru Let's Talk!Β :) 🍁 22:11, 16 January 2021 (UTC)[]
I can try but that's not a strong suit of mine. Whatcha got? Operator873talkconnect 22:12, 16 January 2021 (UTC)[]
Tried putting Template:User en-gb-2 on my userpage here but it doesn't work, am I to use the direct template? --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 22:14, 16 January 2021 (UTC)[]
This is mostly a guess, but it's likely that {{Babel-X}} can't support another template with formatting like {{User en-gb-2}} as a variable. Operator873talkconnect 22:18, 16 January 2021 (UTC)[]
Reading thru {{Babel}} that does indeed look like the issue. The Babel template is hard coded and can't handle another template passed as a variable. Operator873talkconnect 22:21, 16 January 2021 (UTC)[]
So I need to just put just the hardcoded template by itself? --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 22:42, 16 January 2021 (UTC)[]

Yep. Like follow the Babel template with the User en-gb-2 template. {{Babel}}{{User en-gb-2}} Operator873talkconnect 22:43, 16 January 2021 (UTC)[]

School Projects[change source]

Am I allowed to help with school projects? Or do you need to meet a requirements list? --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 01:04, 27 January 2021 (UTC)[]

Sure. Check out WP:Schools Operator873talkconnect 02:17, 27 January 2021 (UTC)[]

Rollback[change source]

For those incidents when they insert the link to Wikipedia diffs, can I just use rollback instead? --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 02:03, 27 January 2021 (UTC)[]

Typically. Most of those edits are from a globally banned user. You have to be sure of your actions. Operator873talkconnect 02:17, 27 January 2021 (UTC)[]
Yea, I tend to use Twinkle to be safe --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 02:18, 27 January 2021 (UTC)[]

Pink Signature[change source]

  • Pink is my favourite colour, but it doesn't work well on this Wikipedia signature, how can I make it darker? --Tsugaru Let's Talk!Β :) 🍁 01:35, 31 January 2021 (UTC)[]
@γ€γŒγ‚‹: You can go here and get the pink just right and note the HEX value (example: #e012cf). Once you're happy with the color, change your signature to: <span style="color:#THE_HEX_VALUE_HERE"> -- Hope that works for you! Operator873talkconnect 01:46, 31 January 2021 (UTC)[]
Looking good now! Thanks! --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 02:00, 31 January 2021 (UTC)[]

IRC[change source]

Could you tell me how to log back into your IRC server after I restart my computer. I've been poking at it for days with /connect and other commands and there doesn't seem to be anywhere for me to enter my password. Darkfrog24 (talk) 20:18, 2 February 2021 (UTC)[]

@Darkfrog24: The server is up with no reported issues. If Freenode is refusing your connection due to a bad password, right click on the "Freenode" line on the left of the screen, and select 'Edit this network'. Ensure your Freenode password is correct. Otherwise, log into Kiwi and reach out to me so we can take a further look. Remember, the IRC873 password is rarely used and is not the same as your Freenode password. Operator873talkconnect 20:35, 2 February 2021 (UTC)[]
Oh will do. I absolutely do not think it's a problem with the server. Darkfrog24 (talk) 21:02, 2 February 2021 (UTC)[]

Thanks[change source]

Thanks for undoing the vandalism on my talk page. I got a message around 10 minutes before that someone tired getting into my account and failed so I don't know if there is more to it or not. --Hellothere4 (talk) 04:16, 18 February 2021 (UTC)[]

@Hellothere4: Yes. Please do not be alarmed by the messages saying someone is attempting to access your account. This is the very boring behavior of a WMF banned user. Ensure you have a strong password and optionally use 2FA to further secure your account. Operator873talkconnect 04:19, 18 February 2021 (UTC)[]
@Operator873: Yes I changed the password and I'll do the Two-factor authentication right now. Thanks again! --Hellothere4 (talk) 04:22, 18 February 2021 (UTC)[]

560mb[change source]

Hi. How long will 560mb of wifi last me (provided I'm using Wikipedia only)? --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 00:51, 26 February 2021 (UTC)[]

Honestly, very difficult to tell. Depends even on what pages you access. Probably not long. Operator873talkconnect 00:53, 26 February 2021 (UTC)[]
I ask because, It's cause the school wifi's is crappy, and there's "ShawGO" wifi across the street, and also "ShawOpen" Shawgo is free and but it says you need to be a shaw custoner (so I don't get why it's free) and Shaw Open is unlimited wifi, but you need to sign in with your shaw billing information, which I didn't have at the time. There's about 80 people connected to the school's wifi network and it's really slow at times. It said about 6 hours, but I doubt it. Will the router remember my device once I used up all the 560mb? --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 00:59, 26 February 2021 (UTC)[]
(talk page stalker) You would likely rip through 560mb very fast. I know someone on an old phone plan with 200mb if they don't pay attention to what pages they are surfing too will go through that much in less than 15 minutes. -Djsasso (talk) 12:06, 26 February 2021 (UTC)[]

(talk page stalker) How to type Emoji on the Wikipedia? --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 00:01, 19 March 2021 (UTC)[]
Presumably they did so on a mobile. --IWI (talk) 00:04, 19 March 2021 (UTC)[]
It may also display differently across various devices, so what I see may be different from what you may see. --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 00:05, 19 March 2021 (UTC)[]
(talk page stalker) I believe that, for that reason, using things like emojis is actually discouraged, especially in things like section headings and signatures. They cause problems for people with vision problems. --Auntof6 (talk) 00:53, 19 March 2021 (UTC)[]
@γ€γŒγ‚‹: I have the SMirC userscript from commons. The header is a regular emoji I copy-pasted from the web though. dibbydib 23:31, 24 March 2021 (UTC)[]

Talk page Archive query[change source]

If one finds a disruptive/vandalistic comment in an talkpage archive, can it be removed? Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 01:03, 8 April 2021 (UTC)[]

@γ€γŒγ‚‹: vandalism can always be removed.Β :) Operator873talkconnect 01:57, 8 April 2021 (UTC)[]
Just removed it. I browse through talk page archives at school, because they seem to be more entertaining than my actual classes. ;P --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 02:02, 8 April 2021 (UTC)[]
(Entertaining as in the discussions that take place, not the vandalisms, etc) --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 02:02, 8 April 2021 (UTC)[]
(talk page stalker) @γ€γŒγ‚‹: I would suggest that if it's on a user talk page that isn't your own, you check with the owner first. If the vandalism was added to the actual talk page (not directly to the archive), the owner may have chosen to leave it there. I know I wouldn't want anyone doing anything to my talk page archives. --Auntof6 (talk) 03:20, 8 April 2021 (UTC)[]
Yeah, probably not ideal to edit other people's talk page archvies. Personally, I would remove any vandalism from my talk page/talk page archive and would have no issue with someone removing it, but others may want to leave it there on their own page. --IWI (talk) 16:43, 8 April 2021 (UTC)[]
Something to remember is that a personal attack isn't necessarily vandalism. It can be, but it its an attack that is part of a discussion it is not. It is obviously not acceptable, but the editor may wish to leave it there so people can see the behaviour of the person who made it. -Djsasso (talk) 16:44, 8 April 2021 (UTC)[]
Hello all. It looks like I've made a mistake when I removed the talkpage archive comment, yes I am aware that we don't edit the archives, however I was under the Impression of WP:IAR, and the fact that rude comments are usually removed anyways. The removal wasn't meant to be disruptive, or something similar to that. Of course if it was an entire thread, I would not touch it. Seeing that it was just 1 comment, I thought it would be okay to remove it. I can't promise that I will be perfect in editing Wikipedia, but what I can promise is that with every mistake I make unintentionally, I will learn and become better because of the mistake made. Wikipedia can't be learned overnight, and neither can it be built all in one night. We've all grown in our time here, and we've all made mistakes, what's important is we learn from them. This is the case here, and I will be sure not to repeat the same actions in the future.
  • Adding on I wanted to say, Wikipedia is a unique place, being bold encourages people of all kinds to not be scared to make changes, because each change is fixable, unlike other online encyclopedias, I don't know any other ones, which allow anyone to contribute and make an account for free. This is why I love Wikipedia, and Why I'm still here despite any mistakes I make. Sorry for this long text, but I just wanted to point this out. --Tsugaru Let's Talk!Β :) 🍁 23:43, 8 April 2021 (UTC)[]

RPBG[change source]

Hi! The block log shows you banned RPBGΒ (talkΒ Β· contribs) infinity (I think you meant indefinitely) however they are still editing pages under their user name. Can you check to make sure you ticked all the right boxes please? Thanks PotsdamLamb (talk) 06:50, 7 May 2021 (UTC)[]

@PotsdamLamb: Their account is globally locked. They've made no edits anywhere on any Wikimedia site since I locked the account. You may want to check your timezone vs UTC. Operator873talkconnect 06:56, 7 May 2021 (UTC)[]
@Operator873: I just saw you did but I don’t see any templates on their user page or talk pageΒ ;) I remember reverting some of their stuff yesterday. We also have one today similar initials. PotsdamLamb (talk) 06:58, 7 May 2021 (UTC)[]
@PotsdamLamb: There is no need to {{ping}} me since this is my talk page and I get pinged anyway. The {{ping}} is for you since you don't get pinged when I respond here. Additionally, templates are not always needed. In fact, there are some that frown on using impersonal templates. Since the account in question is an LTA anyway, there's really no need to waste the effort... Especially since I, as a Steward, was locking the account anyway and globally tagging it in the lock. Operator873talkconnect 07:01, 7 May 2021 (UTC)[]
  • Ah ok! When did you get that? Congrats! I need to learn how to find LTAs. Maybe some one on one training with the tools I have access toΒ :) PotsdamLamb (talk) 07:02, 7 May 2021 (UTC)[]
@PotsdamLamb: During the regularly scheduled Steward Elections in February. There are no tools for detecting LTAs. You have to recognize them by habit. CheckUser is useful once the detection is made to confirm it. As you are well aware, the CU tool cannot be used for fishing expeditions. Operator873talkconnect 07:06, 7 May 2021 (UTC)[]
Correct. I can probably look at the log too so I’ll have to make a bookmark for that. Thanks for that info! I did put in a request for RB. PotsdamLamb (talk) 07:09, 7 May 2021 (UTC)[]
