Vandalism on page for "Names of large numbers"[change source]

Hey, RiggedMint, I notice you have made recent useful changes to this page. I was looking at the large numbers and noticed two recent vandalisms. Could you remove them? THey are:

10^10^7777 Tyler's Constant

added on:

03:25, 26 January 2024? 2001:56b:3fe3:ca35:b969:ca89:693c:7884    ??Names for large numbers


10^10^3344 Paul's Constant

added on:

17:13, 14 December 2023?  Added a new number known as Paul's constant.

These large numbers don't exist. Thanks!

Sure, I can also replace them with real ones (such as graham's number). RiggedMint 21:06, 31 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]
It is done. RiggedMint 23:09, 31 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks for these updates. I checked the page from my phone, and was somewhat shocked to discover that there are two Wikipedias -- normal and "simple.wikipedia.org". The normal page for large numbers at Names of large numbers - Wikipedia is, frankly, a lot better than this simple page (Names of large numbers). I now understand the goal of simple English Wikipedia, and you no doubt know it, too. But I think that means that this page should only simplify the info on the main page and not embellish it with more numbers or anything like that. Steven L Wagar (talk) 19:12, 1 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@Steven L Wagar: I don't think limiting simplewiki to contents of enwiki is the right way. Instead we should focus on presenting complex topics in simple layman terms without thinking how much less/more detailed pages here are than on enwiki. Sincerly, A09 (talk) 19:19, 1 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Ok, that is fair, but at the same time, the simple and regular pages shouldn't diverge in the information they present. Simplewiki editors should just review the regular pages from time to time and that would probably suffice. Steven L Wagar (talk) 21:42, 1 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]

February 2024[change source]

Welcome to Wikipedia. Everyone is welcome to change things here, but talk pages are meant to be a record of a discussion. Deleting or changing good comments, as you did at User talk:Eptalon, should not be done, even if you meant it well. Even fixing spelling and grammar in others' comments is usually advised against, because it can irritate the users whose wrote them. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about how you can help build this encyclopedia. Thank you. Thanks - Da LambTalk to me!Please don't eat da 🐑! 16:49, 19 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Just a heads up[change source]

Hi. Only check users can use the confirmed template. Please do not put these on yourself. We also do not use suspected accounts either, especially to the en wiki. Everyone gets a chance on simple. If you suspect an editor is evading their block you can post at Wikipedia:Requests for checkuser. There is no need to get in an edit war on a users page as the user controls it and it’s their decision as to what is on it, not another editor. This can be seen as an edit war. Thanks for the welcome back too! Much appreciated. Thanks - Da LambTalk to me!Please don't eat da 🐑! 17:02, 19 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]

@PotsdamLamb: Wasn't me who put it on, it was an enwiki sysop whom put it on. RiggedMint 18:41, 19 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]
I know it wasn’t you and it wasn’t a sysop who put it on the user page here. If they are a sysop on en wiki that doesn’t make them a sysop here. Thanks - PDLTalk to me!Please don't eat da 🐑! 19:25, 19 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Removing pictures[change source]

Hi there. There is no reason to remove pictures from a autotaxon box as you did on Hyneria. The autotaxon box does not need to be shortened and removing pictures has nothing to do with simplifying. They are there for reference for people to look at and we encourage images on the articles regardless of where they are. Thanks - PDLTalk to me!Please don't eat da 🐑! 15:41, 20 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]

I get that, but why did you remove all my simplification? RiggedMint 15:42, 20 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]

::I’m going to add it back in a moment. I’m troubleshooting something else on the article. Thanks - PDLTalk to me!Please don't eat da 🐑! 15:44, 20 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Well no need to as you just did. Thanks - PDLTalk to me!Please don't eat da 🐑! 15:45, 20 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]

February 26, 2024[change source]

Hello, RiggedMint. You have a new email! Please check it at your convenience.
You can take off this notice at any time by removing the {{You've got mail}} or {{YGM}} template.

Thanks - PDLTalk to me!Please don't eat da 🐑! 15:23, 26 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]

You made a whoopsie![change source]

Lol. On the revert you did to Fire engines, you also took out the banner I put at the top stating no sources. Please be careful in the future to see what has changed before you flip it back :) Thanks - PDLTalk to me!Please don't eat da 🐑! 15:33, 28 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]

I had already tagged with no sources during the revision, so it is fine. RiggedMint 15:48, 28 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]
It showed that it wasn't there but an anon reverted it. But I put it back up again :) Thanks - PDLTalk to me!Please don't eat da 🐑! 15:49, 28 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Alrighty. RiggedMint 15:50, 28 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]
lol Thanks - PDLTalk to me!Please don't eat da 🐑! 15:51, 28 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]
It seems like the rv didn't carry the tag, so I put it back. RiggedMint 15:52, 28 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]
All good. Hopefully the person adds them. I am sure there were some at one point. But it is what it is since we have a lot without references. Thanks - PDLTalk to me!Please don't eat da 🐑! 15:53, 28 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]
The reason reverted it is because:
  1. It was complex.
  2. No sources nor no links.
  3. Unnecessary jargon, that is related to article but not needed at all.
RiggedMint 15:56, 28 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Agreed :) Multi-tag it :) Thanks - PDLTalk to me!Please don't eat da 🐑! 15:56, 28 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Nah, the revision I reverted to is good, It just needs sources. RiggedMint 16:01, 28 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]
lol easily obtainable but I am a little busy today. :O I would just drop it on the IP talk page whom has been doing extensive work on it. Thanks - PDLTalk to me!Please don't eat da 🐑! 16:10, 28 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Problem is the IP is a mobile IP, which means they're IP changes so I really can't. RiggedMint 16:11, 28 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Which I find funny because I noticed they block the entire range for AT&T phones as well as T-Mobile. lol Thanks - PDLTalk to me!Please don't eat da 🐑! 16:28, 28 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Congrats![change source]

BRP has granted you your patroller rights. Please visit your request for comments. I will be archiving it in a couple of hours, so if you don’t see it, just search the archives. Again congrats 🎉 🎊 and a job well done! Thanks - PDLTalk to me!Please don't eat da 🐑! 14:49, 24 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Oh, thanks for the congrats! :) RiggedMint 17:07, 24 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Hi, could I ask which article is this copied from? --Ferien (talk) 15:28, 25 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

@Ferien: I am not sure what it's copied from, but you can definitely tell it's copied due to the fact that the reference numbers are still there. (Example: Marziyeh Amirizadeh is an Iranian American public speaker, author[1] and activist.[2]) RiggedMint 15:29, 25 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Hmm, I've searched quite a bit with Google, https://copyvios.toolforge.org etc and can't seem to find anything as of yet. The references could be due to copying or (unlikely, but still possibly) misunderstanding how references work, so I will just leave the page for now, for another admin to review. --Ferien (talk) 15:38, 25 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

You may want to remove your QD for this. See w:Cruel Summer (GOOD Music album) Thanks, and be well! - PDLTalk to me!Please don't eat da 🐑! 19:06, 15 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

I don't think I did though? RiggedMint 12:48, 16 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Oh yeah, I marked it as QD because it was nonsensical. RiggedMint 12:59, 16 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
