Hi[change source]

Provided you don't use other accounts or IPs to edit, or edit disruptively, or make articles against our policies, there are no issues with you contributing here. However, if any of that happens, you will be blocked indefinitely and without warning as per WP:ONESTRIKE. Regards, Vermont (talk) 00:54, 24 May 2020 (UTC)

thank you for the welcome. i'm just here to write 1000 articles about notable people. it's good that you wrote down the admin practice, that admins follow, regardless of what policy might say elsewhere. you should be aware that attempts to Wikipedia:Deny recognition that shock outsiders, might get you interviewed by Wired magazine. [1] - Slowking4 (talk) 02:07, 24 May 2020 (UTC)
We don't have a G5 deletion criteria here. If you make an article, and at some point you're blocked, the admin making the block isn't going to be going to Special:MassDelete. In my personal view, DENY doesnt work with most LTAs that venture into content creation, and regardless if they provide useful content we might as well keep it. That's different for undisclosed paid editors, however; that's a terms of use violation and inherently bad faith. Vermont (talk) 15:41, 24 May 2020 (UTC)
i still have my "cyber rights now" t-shirt,[2] so getting my name in Wired is a recognition I never could have dreamed of. Slowking4 (talk) 16:57, 24 May 2020 (UTC)

Information.svg Hello, Slowking4! Here at Simple English Wikipedia we use the section heading "Other websites" instead of English Wikipedia's "External links". This makes it simpler and easier to read. Please remember to use "Other websites" in articles that you create in the future. Thank you for your help! IWI (chat) 00:30, 2 June 2020 (UTC)

ok, no problem, will copy edit those thus far. Slowking4 (talk) 00:31, 2 June 2020 (UTC)
Thank you friend. IWI (chat) 00:34, 2 June 2020 (UTC)

Thank you, and a request[change source]

Thank you for all of the new article creation you are doing, especially the civil rights and human rights activists. I see that you are really into posting women athletes. I have a couple requests/suggestions that will improve them. One, add the sports-bio stub. Two, link, link, link. We aren't afraid of red links on this wiki. Link their hometowns, link water polo, link the major international matches. That's one way we eventually get new articles. See Anne Belden as an example of what I mean. Third, if at all possible, try to make these a little bit longer or add an image when possible. Thanks, Gotanda (talk) 00:29, 18 June 2020 (UTC)

thanks for noticing. 300 down 700 to go. just taking a little bite out of the gender bias. apparently all the translation backlog at english is growing, since they hound anyone who is not perfect, and recreations are not systematic. i'm afraid the sports stubs are thin, because the sources are minimal. i will swing by again for those with college pages that have more detail. i was holding off adding images until Wikipedia Pages Wanting Photos contest, next month; once they get linked to wikidata, then it is an easy infobox/wikidata. i may have changed my mind about all those competition articles - they are more like list articles from the old days, now more suited to a wikidata query. better to spend article writing time on translations of women bios. i will try more linking since it is easier in VE. cheers.Slowking4 (talk) 00:47, 18 June 2020 (UTC)
Cheers! We have a looooooong way to go around here on gender and racial bias. Every new article helps. --Gotanda (talk) 01:06, 18 June 2020 (UTC)

I have another request. When you create an article about a person, please include a defaultsort. You can see what it should look like by looking at the change I made to Alexandre Gaiscoigne. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 09:05, 29 June 2020 (UTC)

(tps) And one more thing, when you're making articles, please be as specific with their categories as possible. Miraclepine 19:17, 29 June 2020 (UTC)
yeah, sorry, i do not really use categories, or defaultsort. i use wikidata queries. i'm afraid i rely on my million edit friend to do the category work (elsewhere) i'm just making a rough pass of yob, nationality, and occupation. the category completion in VE is hit or miss.
the dirty little secret of gender gap percentage, is that the men athletes got in under "special" notability rules, and too few are interested in filling the gap, with stubs that have little chance of getting reliable sourcing. and a banned admin mass deleted 12000 sports stubs. Slowking4 (talk) 19:32, 29 June 2020 (UTC)
Just coming back around to ask once again if you would start adding links and the sport bio stub to these articles. No links=no connections, so the articles are not as easily found. I understand you want to address the gender gap in total articles, but visibility is also important. --Gotanda (talk) 00:03, 3 July 2020 (UTC)

Thank you![change source]

Hi! There are so many acceptable birthdate templates out there, but appreciate you sticking to Day/Month/Year format in the articles you're creating. It makes adding infoboxes way easier for me. — Infogapp1 (talk) 09:58, 23 June 2020 (UTC)

#WPWP[change source]

Just saying thanks for the work you're doing for this campaign! It's a welcome improvement to our articles. --Auntof6 (talk) 03:25, 14 July 2020 (UTC)

just a little maintenance for cash. m:Wikipedia Pages Wanting Photos if we adopted more wikidata infoboxes, like french or catalan, i could write more articles. cheers. Slowking4 (talk) 13:40, 14 July 2020 (UTC)
Are there infoboxes on French or Catalan Wikipedia that don't exist in English? In any case, you can add an image or create an article without an infobox. --Auntof6 (talk) 17:41, 14 July 2020 (UTC)
oh no - this is not a technical difference but a cultural one. here is the 2017 presentation by the expert File:Wikidatacon 2017. Wikidata-powered infoboxes.pdf - "Some enwp community members ○ Expectations that everything is perfect immediately ○ Unwillingness to help fix content problems on Wikidata - need local editing of Wikidata info ; My roll-out work is on hold for now" - to the extent we import manual infoboxes from english, we will have manual maintenance (even if 1/10 the amount) we could as a project advocate and convert to wikidata infobox, but it would require some leadership, and consensus. cheers Slowking4 (talk) 20:42, 14 July 2020 (UTC)
