Your RfA...[change source]

Hello Angela, I am sad to see that your RfA did not succeed, at this time. Please note that this RfA is not a vote on the work you do for SEWP, it is also not a vote on you as an editor. So: no matter what people said or wrote, keep up the good work you do for this Wikipedia. I feel that when the time is right, another RfA of you will likely be successful. You do great work for this wiki. Thank you for all the help. --Eptalon (talk) 16:35, 14 August 2021 (UTC)

Your signature[change source]

Would you consider changing your signature to include a link to your talk page? It's helpful to others who might want to contact you. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 03:39, 17 August 2021 (UTC)

Is something wrong with my writing signature? Angela Kate Maureen 03:45, 17 August 2021 (UTC)
Not wrong, per se. Most signatures include not only a link to the user's main page, but also a link to their talk page. It's not required, but it's helpful. If you don't want to include one, people can work around it; it just takes an extra step or two to get to your talk page. --Auntof6 (talk) 06:05, 17 August 2021 (UTC)
Something like [[User:Tropical Storm Angela|Angela Kate Maureen]] ([[User talk:Tropical Storm Angela|talk]]) is probably what Auntof6 is talking about. (omit the code and nowiki tags.) SHB2000 (talk) 12:06, 17 August 2021 (UTC)
How can I include the link for my talk page? Angela Kate Maureen 13:13, 17 August 2021 (UTC)
replacing your signature with the code I wrote above. SHB2000 (talk) 13:14, 17 August 2021 (UTC)

Please be civil...[change source]

...even in edit summaries like the one for this change. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 06:03, 20 August 2021 (UTC)

I hardly ever use profanities while editing Wikipedia (unless it's necessary). I prefer being bold although not reckless. However, the reason for using that edit summary to which you just referred, the users of that IP operating address made me very furious when they vandalized my user talk page and certain other pages (including users' talk pages, politician articles and the Adolf Hitler article with obscenities and Hitler's family name used in the wording); when they used profanities while editing WP:VIP, that became the last straw. I'm much tougher and more resilient than I was before August 2015. Such vandalism that involves obscenity or uses Hitler's name, however, will sometimes be more than even most experienced Wikipedia users can tolerate. But I promise to remain more civil even in the worst vandalism cases on each Wikipedia site. Angela Kate Maureen (talk) 06:53, 20 August 2021 (UTC)
Using profanities is never necessary here. The most experienced Wikipedia users know that they will have to deal with vandalism and nastiness sometimes and they know how to keep their cool no matter what the provocation. That doesn't mean that you tolerate it; you just show that you don't tolerate it by reverting, warning, then reporting when it's appropriate. I just took a look at that user's vandalism, and it's nothing compared to what the admins get in their email. If you want to be an admin, it's all the more important that you can handle this stuff without this kind of reaction. --Auntof6 (talk) 07:44, 20 August 2021 (UTC)

Category:Women's rights?[change source]

Hello Angela, Personally, I think it's a good idea to have a category to group all these topics that concern women (for the contest); I would hoever see the following:

  • Category:Women's suffrage - has been / still is a hot topic. We would need another article though (and put Women's suffrage, and Women's voting rights in the US in there)
  • Category:Women victims of violence/harassment (or similar) - Domestic violence, Sexual harassment; possibly Acid attack (IIRC affects women more often then men)

While they are not directly concerned items like child marriage, or forced marriage could also fit (no idea what category though, possibly with reproductive rights & abortion). As to the feminism, I am sure there are 2-3 more of them (I created them, for different feminist movements, you'll probably find them if you search for feminism...). What about the article on Femen, or a body positivity? Just thoughts,I just don't feel good having an articles "sexual harrassment" in a category:WOmen's rights - That sounds like women had a "right to be harrassed" (which is certainly not the case). So what do you think?--Eptalon (talk) 20:58, 30 August 2021 (UTC)

I think you're right. Sexual harassment might not exactly have been that appropriate for this Women's rights category having been assigned for that Wikipedia page. Simple English Wikipedia's gotta have much more appropriate articles for this women's rights category. Angela Kate Maureen (talk) 21:33, 30 August 2021 (UTC)
