Vandalism in progress[change source]

Seems like no one is noticing that there is a small vandal attack right now (WP:VIP). Sk4mp (talk) 16:23, 11 February 2020 (UTC)

@Sk4mp: I'm sorry for the late reply, I was away from the keyboard. Generally speaking, a report to WP:VIP is sufficient. An alternate route would be to join #wikipedia-simple connect and request !admin@simplewiki for a quick response from the sysops that monitor the channel. Operator873talkconnect 21:33, 11 February 2020 (UTC)
I joined the channel, thanks Face-smile.svg. I just saw that no one was reacting to the request on VIP, so I decided to message an active admin. Sk4mp (talk) 21:37, 11 February 2020 (UTC)

How do you become an WikiGryphon? lol. I tried too add that icon, but I failed. Best regards. ✍️A.WagnerC (talk) 14:40, 19 March 2020 (UTC)

@A.WagnerC: you can add {{User:Operator873/tools/TopIcons/WikiGryphon}} to your userpage on this project. It won't work elsewhere. :) Operator873talkconnect 14:49, 19 March 2020 (UTC)

Inindo: Way of the Ninja[change source]

I created the article Inindo: Way of the Ninja. Can you see if the article is in simple english mode? I thank you. Best regards. 23:27, 28 March 2020 (UTC)

@A.WagnerC: It's very close, but still needs some work. Simple English means articles should only have words that are easy for everyone, including people learning how to read and/or speak English, to understand. We try to keep only the words in this list in articles. However, if there is a word that isn't on that list that you need to use, you can after link to an article about that word. If there's no article, check Simple Wiktionary for a definition that you can use to link to. Again, read Wikipedia:How to write Simple English pages and you'll be good.

Stale[change source]

Can I remove stale reports from VIP? --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 00:22, 29 March 2020 (UTC)

Page created was deleted[change source]

Hi! Thank you for reminding me of being vigilant on creating new pages. I understand the reason why my newly created pages were deleted. However, I just want to ask if articles that I personally created in the Wikipedia, cannot be copied here as is, some of it are already simple enough, and I personally created them. Thanks!

Regards, Brazal.dang (talk) 13:55, 31 March 2020 (UTC)

@Brazal.dang: You'll need to become familiar with how to write simple English articles since we use a very limited word list. To answer your question directly, no. No article or portion of an article should be copied from the English Wikipedia, regardless of who wrote it. Operator873talkconnect 13:59, 31 March 2020 (UTC)
Thank you very much! Brazal.dang (talk) 14:01, 31 March 2020 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) @Brazal.dang, Operator873: I have to disagree with the statement that "No article or portion of an article should be copied from the English Wikipedia, regardless of who wrote it." Copying from English Wikipedia ("enwiki") is one of the main ways we get new articles. They do have to be attributed. They also have to be in simple language, which can be from simplifying the language used on enwiki or by the language being simple enough on enwiki in the first place. In fact, Wikipedia:How to copy from another Wikipedia is our guideline on how to do such copying. --Auntof6 (talk) 23:16, 31 March 2020 (UTC)
Thank you Auntof6 for clarifying that. My meaning was that leads shouldn't be copy/pasted into a simple article, published and moved on from with no simplification. I wholly agree with your statement and appreciate your stepping in here. Operator873talkconnect 23:19, 31 March 2020 (UTC)


Unblock Request[change source]

@Operator873: Since my block was not real(don’t know what happened)is it ok if I remove the unblock template? 2600:387:5:807:0:0:0:A2 (talk) 21:12, 2 April 2020 (UTC)

Queens[change source]

In my edit you said it was incorrect info. But in 2008 they renamed it. Except on the southbound Exit 29W from the Cross Island Parkway, it says the RFK Bridge. Also it does not go directly to the Bronx, as Wards Island is part of Manhattan, hence the TRIborough. And Exit 46 off Interstate 278 is in Manhattan. Just saying. 2600:387:5:807:0:0:0:AE (talk) 00:48, 5 April 2020 (UTC)

@2600:387:5:807:0:0:0:AE: Cool. What is your source? Information, especially disputed information, shouldn't be added without supporting information. Operator873talkconnect 01:23, 5 April 2020 (UTC)
@Operator873: have you ever been to NYC? If you go to English Wikipedia and the Interstate 278 article, where the RFK is, and scroll left, it says β€œManhattan”. Queens does not connect to the Bronx. The other sign that says Triboro Bridge is the Exit 12 sign off Interstate 295 directly on I-278. It is confusing. 2600:387:5:80D:0:0:0:50 (talk) 20:43, 5 April 2020 (UTC)
@2600:387:5:80D:0:0:0:50: How unusual. I suppose that's why we should build the encyclopedia based on independent, verifiable sources instead of what people believe and/or say based on their own original research or experiences. Also, English Wikipedia is not a source. I suggest you request the community's input on the talk page of the article. Operator873talkconnect 21:57, 5 April 2020 (UTC)
@Operator873: According to https://www.quora.com/How-many-bridges-connect-the-5-boroughs-in-NYC (which btw I don’t know how to make it a clickable link, it says the 3 bridges connecting Queens and the Bronx are the Throgs Neck Bridge, Whitestone Bridge and RIKERS ISLAND Bridge. The RFK connects Manhattan, Queens AND The Bronx. So this means that I am right, if you don’t believe me, look at the website and scroll down. It’s that simple. 2600:387:5:80D:0:0:0:50 (talk) 23:00, 5 April 2020 (UTC)
https://cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com/2008/11/19/triborough-bridge-is-renamed-for-rfk/ says it is the RFK now. 2600:387:5:80D:0:0:0:50 (talk) 23:24, 5 April 2020 (UTC)

@Operator873: ok. But first off, how did I disobey the rules and second, how do I properly cite the source so I can go back to the edit and do it again? So that I can do my edit over again but with properly cited sources. I don’t want a huge hyperlink popping out. 2600:387:5:807:0:0:0:94 (talk) 13:52, 7 April 2020 (UTC)

Can you remove the bear from Vermont as it says it is from User: Vermont was this intentional? But Vermont should be the one to see this @Operator873:

No. I'll remove it if and when I'm ready to. You should not be attempting to edit pages in other users' space with the exception of their talk page. Vermont, BRPever, and I are all aware of and consent to the edit. Operator873talkconnect 18:35, 7 April 2020 (UTC)

I'm assuming you're reverting in good faith[change source]

Did you notice by reverting my change at Internet Explorer you added a ton of text back to the article. I spent a lot of time editing there. It may not be done, but was an improvement I think. I will not bother with editing IE until you've looked more into reverting your revert. Also elsewhere where you've reverted twice, both in error at Sun Sun Microsystems.

Guin Records Deletion Query[change source]

Hello @Operator873: what changes should I make to guin records article so that It can be Up again , I am sorry If there was some promotional tone in the article , please let me know the changes . Rockpeterson (talk) 14:11, 9 April 2020 (UTC)

@Rockpeterson: It appears like the article was written to praise Guin Records instead of report what the record label is in a unbiased manner. Additionally, many of your recent edits appear to be you copying/pasting content from another Wikipedia without simplifying the language. Please do not do this.

Forgot to attribute[change source]

When I created Ogawamachi Station (Tokyo) I forgot to attribute in the edit summary that the article was copied from en-wiki, but then later remembered that I forgot and then added the translated template in the talk page of the article, and then added that I copied the article from en-wikipedia in the edit summary of the article as a dummy edit. I will not get in trouble for forgetting right? --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 19:55, 9 April 2020 (UTC)

@Thegooduser: This article should be ok as it doesn't really have any complex language. But it is a word for word copy of the English Wikipedia article. It would be best if you changed it to make it not an exact copy by adding some of your own work to the article. Operator873talkconnect 20:09, 9 April 2020 (UTC)
Ok. I did change the wording though. (Looks like I'll get a not done for my patroller request lol) --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 20:12, 9 April 2020 (UTC)

Ok. But I do have a question about the request I made at WP:PERM, not trying to be annoying or anything here, but because changes have been made to the article since it was created, would my request for patroller be a X mark.svg Not done? --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 20:26, 9 April 2020 (UTC)

Is it considered "wrong" to copy an en-wiki article word for word? --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 20:44, 9 April 2020 (UTC)

Davey2010, thanks for letting me know.  Done Operator873talkconnect 18:53, 23 April 2020 (UTC)
No worries, Thanks again for your help, Thanks, –Davey2010Talk 18:55, 23 April 2020 (UTC)
One of the diffs from that link are still visible for whatever reason --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 19:53, 23 April 2020 (UTC)
Thegooduser, oops. Good catch, and thank you. Also  Done Operator873talkconnect 19:57, 23 April 2020 (UTC)

Thegooduser might be better to test on your own talk page, in your own userspace, or in the Sandbox. Operator873talkconnect 20:07, 23 April 2020 (UTC)

Operator873, we have another possible block evasion[change source]

I am assuming we have another block evasion problem here. The IP asked about a page IPs kept on creating, which was an article about me, which links to the log. So, I suspecting another block evasion here. Thanks. Arthurfan828 - CHAT 19:10, 27 April 2020 (UTC)

@Arthurfan828:  Done but this should have been reported to WP:VIP and not my talk page since I'm not always around. Operator873talkconnect 19:27, 27 April 2020 (UTC)
do we need to rd the logs? --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 19:27, 27 April 2020 (UTC)

Glitch[change source]

Hi. Since you are a person in IT, I thought I would ask you. So I never clicked the "keep me logged" in button, I logged in to Wikipedia 48 hours ago, and left for 12 hours, it then made me relogin, then when I clicked log in, it logged me back in without me having to put in the password... Will clearing my cookies fix this? --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 15:10, 29 April 2020 (UTC)

Resolved.

Protect my userpage and my user talk page[change source]

Hello, Operator873, I would like you to semi-protect my userpage and my user talk page please? I would like it to expire in 2 months because most of the edits were made by anonymous users who vandalized my talk page and accusing me of sockpuppetry. It is also taking up my notifications. Thanks. Arthurfan828 - CHAT 15:29, 30 April 2020 (UTC)

@Arthurfan828: Both protected for 3 months since 2 months isn't a pre-configured option and I'm lazy today. Operator873talkconnect 15:31, 30 April 2020 (UTC)

Thanks. Arthurfan828 - CHAT 15:36, 30 April 2020 (UTC)

hidden cats[change source]

how can I view all hidden categories in a page? I forgot how to do it --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 00:45, 1 May 2020 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) An easy way of checking this is opening the source editor of the page and uncollapsing the "This page is a member of x hidden categories:" dropdown list. HiΓ n (talk) 05:30, 3 May 2020 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) @Thegooduser: If you always want to see them all the time, there's an option in your settings. It's called "Show hidden categories", and it's on the Appearance tab under Advanced options. --Auntof6 (talk) 06:36, 3 May 2020 (UTC)
thanks HiΓ n and Auntof6! --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 21:03, 3 May 2020 (UTC)

Doubt[change source]

Hi greetings, I'd like to ask you a doubt about AWB access in simple wiki. It is only on a curiosity. Users added to the AWB checkpage are removed a few days later. Is this a policy in wiki or users' request for removal or users' inactivity. I'm asking this only on a curiosity. Hope you'll help. Thank you.--Path slopu (Talk) 04:44, 3 May 2020 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) They are removed after the project they needed access for is done. -DJSasso (talk) 14:22, 6 May 2020 (UTC)

You deserve this! Thank You for all you do here, from VIP reports, to deleting pages, to helping new editors. Thank You! Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 02:21, 7 May 2020 (UTC)

neutral[change source]

I am having a really hard time on choosing which side to vote on the request for checkusership, is there a neutral section, or is it best for me not to vote? --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 21:21, 9 May 2020 (UTC)

It's purely up to you. If you want to participate as with {{Neutralvote}} vote or even {{Abstain}}, then you're welcome to. However, not voting is also just as valid. There is no compulsory action here. It's your choice. Operator873talkconnect 21:25, 9 May 2020 (UTC)
thanks. I put the neutral vote in which section? --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 21:27, 9 May 2020 (UTC)
It should most likely go in the Comments section since that is the best fit. Operator873talkconnect 21:28, 9 May 2020 (UTC)

@Thegooduser: Wikiprojects are handled in user space on this WP. They're just as official there as in Project: space. Operator873talkconnect 20:51, 12 May 2020 (UTC)
