welcome[change source]

@Thegooduser: Donโ€™t worry, I plan to cause no trouble here. Iโ€™m tired of being blocked, and will do everything possible to stay unblocked. SithJarJar666 (talk) 22:29, 16 June 2020 (UTC)
Hey SithJarJar (or TE2017, it's weird with the different names :) ), hope your staying well - becuase you probably wouldn't see my reply on you're en.wp account, I just wanted to drop by here and just clarify that there shouldn't be any hard feelings between us - I'm glad you learned something from CVUA, and while it's unfortunate that two of my graduates have since been blocked, I'm relieved it's not from any faults in my training, and I'll continue training there. Anyway, just wanted to let you know that I have your en.wp talk page watchlisted and will be the first to welcome you back and support you in six months! In the meanwhile, if you need any help, you can reach out to me here! One last thing - in editing here and at en.wp later, I'd like you to remember the CVU motto: Civility - Maturity - Responsibilty; I hope you keep those attributes in mind while you edit and I'm glad you've stopped socking, that's not how you become an established editor. Good luck and cheers, Puddleglum2.0 (talk) 23:11, 16 June 2020 (UTC)
@Puddleglum2.0: (Hey, I didnโ€™t know you were over here on simple wikipedia!) Well, if I ever get allowed back in to en.wp, Iโ€™m probably gonna change my name-I donโ€™t really like this one all that much. Thank you for the offer of help - Iโ€™m glad thereโ€™s no hard feelings between us. (Of course, I may not ask much, since thereโ€™s no point in acting like Iโ€™m a newbie anymore, though I actually did learn many things through my socking ordeals.) And yeah, I actually didnโ€™t like doing the socking all that much. Iโ€™m glad to be done with that.

Regards, --SithJarJar666 (talk) 23:39, 16 June 2020 (UTC)

@Puddleglum2.0: Hey, is there a Guild of Copy Editors over here? If not, I might have to start one... if I were to, would you be willing to help? --SithJarJar666 (talk) 23:49, 16 June 2020 (UTC)
Welcome to simplewiki, where WikiProjects are in userspace because this wiki is small. The closest to what you want is User:Mikemoral/Typo Team, not edited changed (yup, simplewiki, simple works) since 1,906 days. You might want to read An English Wikipedian's guide.
@Can I Log In: I read the pages you sent me. I think I might try to start something like the GOCE over here... --SithJarJar666 (talk) 00:35, 17 June 2020 (UTC)
Actually, there is a copy editing WikiProject. User:Pending/WikiProject: Copy Editors; not changed in 2331 days.
So there you go. WikiProjects here aren't active for very long; compared to enwiki, you most likely won't get that many active members, but it's still possible. Can I Log In (talk) 00:39, 17 June 2020 (UTC)
Wow. No edits to that WikiProject in 6 years, and yet thereโ€™s only 46 articles needing copy edit? This really is a small wiki... --SithJarJar666 (talk) 15:39, 17 June 2020 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) I have 2 wikiprojects, see my userpage. unsure if you want to join them/or interested --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) ๐Ÿ 00:41, 17 June 2020 (UTC)

While the enthusiasm is appreciated, it makes a lot more sense to focus on just editing for now and worry about things like WikiProjects down the road. As evidenced by how long it's bee since those other WikiProjects have been touched, there's not enthusiasm for them on Simple. Take some time to edit and familiarize the ins and outs of Simple before worrying about the projects. Only (talk) 02:10, 17 June 2020 (UTC)

@Only: Sorry, itโ€™s just hard to get used to the fact that the main wiki projects i joined on en.wp donโ€™t exist on here, which is kinda throwing me off... --SithJarJar666 (my profile | my contribs | speak to me) 17:05, 17 June 2020 (UTC)
I would also advise that it takes time to learn about the Simple English Wikipedia so please go slowly when you learn about this wiki. If you have any questions while contributing, you can ask for help at simple talk which is the equivalent of the Teahouse on here. Interstellarity (talk) 20:02, 17 June 2020 (UTC)
@Interstellarity: Ok, I can do that. --sithjarjar666 (my profile | my contribs | speak to me) 20:05, 17 June 2020 (UTC)

Welcome, SithJarJar. If you're interested in other ways that this wiki is different from others, you can look at this list I made that lists several differences. That list is not a guideline or policy, it's just an informal list I have. If you have any questions about it, feel free to ask. --Auntof6 (talk) 06:09, 18 June 2020 (UTC)

@Auntof6: I read the page and found it very helpful, so thank you for sending me the link. I actually kinda like this wiki... but I still think that en.wp is the place where I belong (once I get myself unbanned, that is)... --sithjarjar666 (my profile | my contribs | speak to me) 15:24, 18 June 2020 (UTC)
Also, I just updated the Typo Team page. Not so outdated after all :) ~Prahlad balaji (t / c) 15:53, 23 June 2020 (UTC)

Good luck[change source]

I'm not active here, so I probably won't see you around much, but I'd just like to say good luck with the Simple English Wikipedia, and I do hope you can eventually come back to en-Wikipedia as a constructive contributor. I was surprised when I saw the block notice, but as Puddleglum2.0 said, I'm glad you've stopped socking. Wishing you well, GalaxyDog (talk) 00:00, 17 June 2020 (UTC)

Categorizing[change source]

Thank you for adding categories to articles. When you categorize articles, please try to categorize them completely. I looked at the three listed below, and the categories needed a little more work.

I know that learning how to fully categorize is a process. If I can be of help with that, feel free to ask. --Auntof6 (talk) 07:25, 21 June 2020 (UTC)

@Auntof6: Thank you for the help! I will keep it in mind as I keep adding articles to categories... --sithjarjar666 (my contribs | talk to me | email me | see my enwiki profile) 23:24, 21 June 2020 (UTC)
You're welcome. One more note: if you don't know the year of birth of a person, you can use Category:Year of birth missing or Category:Year of birth missing (living people), depending on whether the person is living. --Auntof6 (talk) 02:37, 23 June 2020 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) I had similar issues with stubs in the past as I initially only knew "biography-stub". What helped me was to look through Show any page and simply looking through similar pages and what sort of categories are usually used in similar articles to give you a better sense of more specific stubs/categories. โ€” Infogapp1 (talk) 23:59, 21 June 2020 (UTC)

/*Advice On Salman Jaberi Page Deletion*/[change source]

Hello SithJarJar666, I hope you're well and staying safe during these unprecedented times. Thank you for your feedback on the deletion. I wanted to seek your advice on where I went wrong with forming the wikipage, I made changes since your deletion request as I am a legitimate notable artist in the underground electronic music industry with all appropriate citations and references. Is it too long for the Simple English Wikipedia? Have I put in inaccurate details that I am not aware of? Thank you for taking the time with leaving me your feedback. I am new to this and I am doing my best to learn how to communicate and use the proper rules for the Wiki platform.--MembersMember 01:09, 23 June 2020 (UTC)

@Themembersmember: Well, you usually shouldnโ€™t write articles about yourself. If you meet the general notability standards, eventually someone else who doesnโ€™t have a conflict of interest will write it for you. Does that make sense? --sithjarjar666 (my contribs | talk to me | email me | see my enwiki profile) 14:54, 23 June 2020 (UTC)

Welcome[change source]

Hello! I am assuming you have come over from the English Wikipedia, so you are probably familiar with the way this wiki works. I hope you like it here and decide to stay. Here are a few links to help you adjust:

There is much to do here. For example, there are a lot of articles that do not exist yet, which you can bring over from the English Wikipedia and simplify. Do have a look around and see what you would like to do. Thank you for joining us, and you know how to contact me if you need help. ~Prahlad balaji (t / c) 15:28, 23 June 2020 (UTC)

Hey[change source]

Hey TE2017 hope you are doing well, just wanted to drop by and say hello! The4lines (talk) 17:51, 24 June 2020 (UTC)

sub-pages[change source]

  • To work on a page without presenting it to the rest of the wiki, use the page title: User SithJarJar666/[whatever]. The "whatever" bit is given the title of your intended new page. This means what you are working on not a new page on the wiki. It is a sub-page of your own. When ready, you can simply present the result as a new page. Macdonald-ross (talk) 11:48, 2 July 2020 (UTC)
@Macdonald-ross: Thank you for the advice! Iโ€™ll do that for the next few Lamborghini articles I create... --sithjarjar666 (my contribs | talk to me | email me | see my enwiki profile) 15:00, 2 July 2020 (UTC)
I do the same thing with new articles. Sometimes I don't want to sit down and get them perfect all in one go. Darkfrog24 (talk) 15:36, 6 July 2020 (UTC)

Blocked[change source]

You were blocked for vandalism and sock puppetry? That was my situation and it was complicated like yours. Grady240105 (talk) 12:19, 3 July 2020 (UTC)

@Grady240105: Yep, thatโ€™s me. It really sucks when you do that, cuz then you have to wait at least six months to get back in en.wp... --sithjarjar666 (my contribs | talk to me | email me | see my enwiki profile) 15:32, 6 July 2020 (UTC)
Yeah, being blocked on enwiki is no fun, especially when things are complicated. Getting unblocked is very hard. Darkfrog24 (talk) 15:35, 6 July 2020 (UTC)
@Darkfrog2: Not to pry, but you sound like you know that from personal experience... --sithjarjar666 (my contribs | talk to me | email me | see my enwiki profile) 14:48, 7 July 2020 (UTC)
Fix ping: @Darkfrog24:. --sithjarjar666 (my contribs | talk to me | email me | see my enwiki profile) 14:52, 7 July 2020 (UTC)

Itโ€™s just so annoying that you see things that are wrong or ambiguous and you just want to make it right and you canโ€™t. Grady240105 (talk) 13:58, 7 July 2020 (UTC)

@Grady240105: Right?!?!? I donโ€™t even like visiting enwiki nowadays, because I canโ€™t fix the errors that I see, nor even make edit requests.... --sithjarjar666 (my contribs | talk to me | email me | see my enwiki profile) 14:48, 7 July 2020 (UTC)
Heads up: I did have one person say they didn't like it when they thought I was saying bad things about en.Wiki here on simple, so it could be a "do what you like but don't do it here" situation. Yes I speak from personal experience. I gave Desertborn the short, short version on my talk page when I first got here. If you guys ever need to talk, I am down for that, but you might want to do it by a private message of some kind or on another site. Darkfrog24 (talk) 14:58, 7 July 2020 (UTC)
@Darkfrog24: Perhaps by email? I see you have yours enabled... --sithjarjar666 (my contribs | talk to me | email me | see my enwiki profile) 15:32, 7 July 2020 (UTC)
We've got IRC channels if y'all want to use those. Vermont (talk) 17:17, 7 July 2020 (UTC)
@Vermont: Wouldnโ€™t IRC be bad idea because then everyone could see the messages? Iโ€™m cool with sharing my โ€œhow I got blockedโ€ story, just not in a super-public venue... --sithjarjar666 (my contribs | talk to me | email me | see my enwiki profile) 15:06, 8 July 2020 (UTC)
Everyone that's in the channel you send it to, yes. Vermont (talk) 20:08, 8 July 2020 (UTC)
@Vermont: Hmm... maybe... IRC might work... What do you think, Darkfrog24? Would IRC work? --sithjarjar666 (my contribs | talk to me | email me | see my enwiki profile) 22:58, 8 July 2020 (UTC)
IRC is a fun place to hang out, like talking politics in #wikipedia-politics or random nonsense in #wikipedia-offtopic. The private message function does work fine. My problem is that my computer and connection specifically don't stay connected for more than a couple hours at a time. The main difference between IRC and Wikipedia or a message board is that if you're not logged in when the message is posted, you don't get to see the message. You can leave your IRC on like a net to catch things while you go do something else, but if your computer powers down or if your internet connection turns itself off and on again, you'll get logged out (or at least I do). My biggest problem is that I can't be logged in to IRC and edit Wikipedia at the same time. Basically, IRC is a nice place to make friends and socialize and a good place to get answers in real time if that's what you need--but it's mostly real-time.
My "email this user" is open for a reason. PM me if you want to PM me. Like I said, I already posted the short short version of my how I was blocked story months ago, and I'm cool with that version. Darkfrog24 (talk) 01:44, 9 July 2020 (UTC)
