My QD page[change source]

I'm ready for some protection now. Hockeycatcat (talk) 16:56, 23 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Hockeycatcat: To reduce confusion, please link the page you'd like semi-protected. Operator873 connect 19:49, 23 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It is already protected. They were talking about their QD log. --Ferien (talk) 20:09, 23 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Barron Trump[change source]

An IP is continuously vandalising the page. I reverted many times. I also requested WP:VIP for 2 times also tagged some admin but no use. Please block that IP immediately and semi-protect the redirect page for 7 days. DRC (User:TTP1233) (talk . e-mail . contrib) 06:30, 9 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@TTP1233: I've taken care of it. However, you should use care when you place {{qd}} tags as that page should not be deleted. Operator873 connect 06:36, 9 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I will keep a note of it, next time. That IP is continuously vandalising the page, that I got mad. Anyways, thanks for helping me @Operator873. DRC (User:TTP1233) (talk . e-mail . contrib) 06:38, 9 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Bot873[change source]

You bot seems to be working great. Is it under trail or approved as fully functional? If approved, please help me how can I archive my threads on my talk page. Since Miszabot is no more functioning, I can't archive my threads. DRC (User:TTP1233) (talk . e-mail . contrib) 06:45, 9 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The bot is currently under trials and not ready for production. Follow that page for updates. Operator873 connect 07:02, 9 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
When the production is successful, notify me, if possible. DRC (User:TTP1233) (talk . e-mail . contrib) 09:27, 9 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@TTP1233: The bot is ready to run trial edits when manually directed by me. You do have a properly configured template on your page so I can direct the bot to your talk page, if you'd like. This would be a one-time run until the bot is formally approved. Operator873 connect 22:12, 9 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ok then you can direct the bot in my talk page then. When it is formally approved, then it will function well I guess. DRC (User:TTP1233) (talk . e-mail . contrib) 01:59, 10 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Wrongful deletion of Weather, conditions the coming of the end[change source]

Weather, conditions the coming of the end wasn't a test, it was the equivalent of en:Climate apocalypse; the text was copied from there but changed to Basic English using Simplish.— Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 05:12, 10 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello @ Couple things to unpack here... First, copying and pasting content from another project into this project is already disallowed without attribution. Second, if memory serves, machine translation from any language into any other language is discouraged globally, if not flatly disallowed, since machines frequently can't understand tone and context. So you saying you used Simplish to "translate" the article is already a no-no as it were. Thirdly, you should really review our guide to writting Simple English pages before you proceed any further because competency is required on any Wikipedia project. And don't forget to sign your posts on talk pages and project pages by typing ~~~~ at the end of your message. Operator873 connect 06:28, 10 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
P.S. - If you copied the content from en:Climate apocalypse, why did you name the page you pasted that content into on this project Weather, conditions the coming of the end?? That really doesn't make much sense at all. Operator873 connect 06:30, 10 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
P.S.S. - Now that I think about it, you probably named it Weather, conditions the coming of the end because that's what the machine translator spit out... which is a great example and demonstration of why they aren't allowed. Operator873 connect 06:31, 10 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I actually did attribute in my edit summary. And Help:Translate English into Simple English#General advice on better writing

encourages editors to use Simplish. (talk) 14:45, 10 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply] only translates one word at a time. It doesn't pay attention to grammar at all. That page was completely unreadable. That website cannot be used without cleaning it up afterwards. Lights and freedom (talk) 14:55, 10 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Relayball[change source]

Can I add the game RelayBall just wondering it’s been played all over the world it’s a variation of Basketball? El Panther (talk) 23:23, 10 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Discord[change source]

Unrelated to WP in general, but I want to let you know that your Discord account was compromised. I think you may have joined a server and scanned a QR code that gave someone access to your account; it's a fairly common scam. Wizzito (talk) 08:46, 11 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

(talk page stalker) @Wizzito I think Op873's aware of it, he's put "DO NOT click ... server invite" as his status. I also received the invite link, but didn't click it. — *Fehufangą✉ Talk page 08:57, 11 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I just didn't know if he was. I reported everything to Discord. Wizzito (talk) 09:21, 11 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
