about linking to un-simple words[change source]

Wouldn't it be better to replace them with simpler ones, like in the mainspace? Computer Fizz (talk) 18:32, 29 April 2019 (UTC)

There isn't always a simpler word that conveys the same meaning, we do the same thing in mainspace. -DJSasso (talk) 10:25, 30 April 2019 (UTC)

Removal of "no sources" tag[change source]

Hello. Can I ask why you have been removing the "no sources" templates I left on a few articles? These articles still do not have sources. Among other things, the maintenance tag adds the articles to a category. This is very helpful in working through which articles to add sources to. In this case I was thinking of looking for sources myself later so was tagging them so they would appear in the category. Also the tag alerts the reader to the fact that there is no source, and that the information may be unreliable at present. Maybe I don't understand the process here. But over on EN wikipedia, removing the maintenance template would never be appropriate unless a source is added. Most likely we have a different standard here on simple. I'd love to learn about it if you have an explanation. Desertborn (talk) 15:13, 3 May 2019 (UTC)

Because we aren't as mature a wiki as en.wiki the vast majority of our articles lack sources. As such articles here marked as stubs are generally assumed to be lacking things such as sources. This is so we don't end up with tags on all of our articles which in turn can be seen as more harmful to the wiki if all our articles end up with large tags at the tops of articles than the lack of references on the articles themselves. BLPs do sometimes get left with both tags but as far as I recall none of the articles were blps. That is not to say you can't tag them if you wish, its just that they may also end up being removed. This state of being has evolved due to editors coming over from en.wiki and mass tagging articles here. -DJSasso (talk) 16:09, 3 May 2019 (UTC)
I should note I was coming back with sources as well, which have now been added. I had to step away from my desk before I added them. -DJSasso (talk) 16:45, 3 May 2019 (UTC)
Ah, that makes sense. Thanks for the explanation. I was going to use the category as a sort of "to do list" but I can make a list in my userspace instead. Desertborn (talk) 17:05, 3 May 2019 (UTC)
That is fine I can avoid removing yours, was just worried you might on the verge of spamming tags so wanted to catch it before it went too far. I don't remove them all that often, only when I happen to notice a bunch added in a row. -DJSasso (talk) 17:06, 3 May 2019 (UTC)

What are modules?[change source]

You keep importing them and I've never seen them before. Nor are there any help information on them. Are they just like backend code or something? If so, why can everyone edit them? Computer Fizz (talk) 17:10, 3 May 2019 (UTC)

They are basically code written in a language called Lua. See en:Wikipedia:Lua. In this case I am just converting over Location maps from the old version which is no longer supported on en to the new lua version so that ours will continue to work. -DJSasso (talk) 17:12, 3 May 2019 (UTC)

changing publisher and web to magazine and news on certain pages[change source]

Hey DJSasso: Why are you changing the words publisher and web to magazine and news on certain articles? Angela Maureen (talk) 07:39, 18 May 2019 (UTC)

Because on those pages, the templates were filled out incorrectly. -DJSasso (talk) 10:57, 21 May 2019 (UTC)

Greetings,[change source]

I'd just like to bring your attention to some mistakes you've made while moving articles to incorrect name :

For example

  1. Philippe I, Duke of Orléans is INCORRECT. As a "Son of France" (AKA son of a monarch) he was actually Philippe of France. Plus his title was what's called an appanage (awarded to him by the state and not a sovereign title, thus there's no need for ordinals (I) He just happened to be the first Philippe of the Bourbons of France to be Duke of Orléans. Please could you move it back to it's correct title. The enwiki page is also wrong and people seem to be either to bureaucratic/stupid to read between the lines and realise that such a title is wrong. I also fail to see why people think it's ok to destroy/ruin/edit things they know nothing about. So yes, please move him to Philippe of France, Duke of Orléans, that is the legitimately correct name. Thanks. 79.75.28.235 (talk) 14:06, 19 May 2019 (UTC)

Block[change source]

Please block User:FR30799386. Vandal only account. Keeps on blanking my userpage. Check his contributions. 194.168.89.195 (talk) 11:34, 21 May 2019 (UTC)

IP users don't get user pages. He was making a valid edit. Though he should have just put a quick deletion template on it. If you wish to have a userpage you will need to create an account. -DJSasso (talk) 11:36, 21 May 2019 (UTC)
Should have looked at your block log first. A well known sock. Well you are blocked. -DJSasso (talk) 11:40, 21 May 2019 (UTC)
I guess me being benevolent and blanking the page instead of nominatin' the page for deletion was a wrong decision. Actually, I just lost it when that guy nominated my userpage for deletion, triggering the editwar over the WP:VIP page and all that. — FR 11:54, 21 May 2019 (UTC)
Yeah, might just recommend you take a breath next time. If a report is about you, just leave it there, us admins will realize if its a bad report. -DJSasso (talk) 12:04, 21 May 2019 (UTC)

Redirect on Template:Checkuserblock-confirmed[change source]

Hey Djsasso!

I had made that template as a block template similar to Checkuserblock-account not as a userpage notice. Examknowtalk 19:17, 22 May 2019 (UTC)

I should redirect that other one as well, we don't use it either. We don't really use block notices for that, we just put the sockpuppet template on the userpage/talk page -DJSasso (talk) 19:19, 22 May 2019 (UTC)
okay I just know that they use those templates on enwiki Examknowtalk 19:20, 22 May 2019 (UTC)
Yeah, you are going to find you can't carry over much knowledge from en.wiki to here. We operate a lot differently. DJSasso (talk) 19:21, 22 May 2019 (UTC)
Yeah figured that out pretty fast (the hard way in a lot of cases) Examknowtalk 19:25, 22 May 2019 (UTC)

Continued vandalism by IP User 46.60.254.19[change source]

Hello, Djs. The IP (school?) User 46.60.254.19 is repeatedly writing nonsense content on Phosphorus deficiency. I see you've added a May 2019 warning to that User's Talk page but the problem continues. I need to move on... is there an effective next step to apply? Thanks for any advice for my toolbox. -- Deborahjay (talk) 10:56, 24 May 2019 (UTC)

No worries I am watching. -DJSasso (talk) 11:13, 24 May 2019 (UTC)

Also I forgot to mention your other mistakes :[change source]

  1. "Marie Émilie de Joly de Choin" should simply be Marie Émilie de Joly, Choijn was her father's title, thus again, nothing to do with her name. The frwiki seems to have a habit of joining titles on the end of article names (I assume just in an attempt at differentiating between all of the Louise's and Marie's or Charles' atc. Please move that back to it's original and correct name.
  2. Louise Marie Adélaïde de Bourbon, Duchess of Orléans there is no need to her her title (by marriage) in the article name to be fair. There is no need to complicate or trivialise things plus Louise Marie Adélaïde is hardly a common collection of forenames. Please remove thgw title from the article pagename. Less is more at times. Like I've said I do not understand why people on wikipedia feel it's ok to destroy things they cleasrly know nothing about. Please move them. 79.75.28.235 (talk) 21:06, 25 May 2019 (UTC)
I am also curious to find out why articles with simpler titles are being moved to ones with a title that is less likely to be found. For example I see that the article Bill Blair has been moved to Bill Blair (politician), even though there is no other Bill Blair on Simple. Ottawahitech (talk) 21:26, 25 May 2019 (UTC)
  • There are other Bill Blairs, even if we don't have articles for them here. We might create a disambiguation page for them, even if many of the entries are redlinked, and we would need this one to be qualified.
  • Articles transwikied from enwiki may contain links to the qualified title. Those links could end up red here even though we actually have an article for the person.
