Why is the rum always gone?[change source]

Feeling a bit piratical? :) --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)
Today's gonna be a good day... Operator873talkconnect 22:50, 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)
Auntof6 Who's bringing the Lemons? --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 02:14, 8 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)
I don't use that and have no information on it. You can review its page for more info. Operator873talkconnect 00:23, 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! :) 🍁 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)

query[change source]

  • Are changes like this okay? --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 00:50, 29 January 2021 (UTC)
    (talk page stalker) @つがる: Not really. We have those standard templates for consistency across articles, as well as to ensure there are no errors. If they want to change the wording they can edit the template. --IWI (talk) 00:58, 29 January 2021 (UTC)
    @つがる: fix ping. --IWI (talk) 00:59, 29 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! :) 🍁 01:35, 31 January 2021 (UTC)
@つがる: 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)

Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 01:16, 14 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)

Security researcher[change source]

Could you please take a look into this? If this can be moved to main space.

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)

Just so you know[change source]

My edit of Ancient Greek wrestling [1] was not vandalism. Putting "N/A" in the ISBN field of Cite book generates an error.--Auric (talk) 12:24, 4 March 2021 (UTC)
