Sort keys

Hey, when you have a category and an article with the same name, like Tampico, Illinois, the sort key in the article is a space, not an asterisk. There's information about sort keys at Wikipedia:Categories#Sorting. Thanks! --Auntof6 (talk) 05:42, 17 January 2014 (UTC)

RfD nomination of Grant vs. Lee

An editor has requested deletion of Grant vs. Lee, an article you created. We appreciate your changes, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article meets Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also "What Wikipedia is not").

Please comment on the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/2014/Grant vs. Lee and please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also change the article during the discussion to address the nominator's concerns. But you should not remove the requests for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate. Thank you very much. Osiris (talk) 23:51, 19 January 2014 (UTC)

Rob Ford

We sort of bumped heads a while ago. Generally when there is a "Under Construction" banner on a page it means an editor is actively editing. Otherwise there can be edit conflicts, which we just had. No harm though, just mentioning it for future reference. I've since removed the banner so feel free to edit all you like. In bringing over part of the article from enwiki, I found some of the source citations were to dead links and I found two that failed verification. But most of them checked out. So just a heads-up. Thanks Rus793 (talk) 06:42, 24 January 2014 (UTC)

Ronald Reagan

I thought I saw something on the talk page, but as of now I do not see anything on to that hasn't already been fixed. Could you please clarify where the comments are? -Pending(tell me I screwed up and where) 21:22, 24 January 2014 (UTC)
I also have no idea what issues are. I believe the issues are the referencing (date and author must be added). --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 21:23, 24 January 2014 (UTC)

DEFAULTSORTs and other sort keys

Re José Emilio Pacheco: you might not have known, but sort keys (whether in DEFAULTSORT or not) should not have diacritics in them. The sort key for articles whose titles have any letters with diacritics should replace such letters with the English equivalents. Also, any article whose title has any diacritics should have a DEFAULTSORT, whether or not it would otherwise need one, so that a sort key without diacritics can be specified. Make sense? Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 07:02, 27 January 2014 (UTC)

Categories by nationality: sort keys

I noticed that on some of the categories for Norwegian actors, you added a sort key of "Norway". When a category name has a nationality in it (like "Norwegian") that should be the sort order, not the country (such as "Norway"). In most cases the articles would sort the same anyway, but not in all cases, so please keep the sort order/key matching the category name. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 20:38, 30 January 2014 (UTC)

Sort keys in templates

Hi, TDKR. A few times recently I noticed you using an asterisk as the sort key for categories in templates. When a template is in a category that is not just for templates, the sort key to use is a lower-case tau. There are a couple of ways you can get that character:

  • Copy and paste it from either another template or the article tau. If you use the latter, be sure to copy the lower-case character, not the upper-case one.
  • Code {{subst:tau}} as the sort key. When you save the template, that will be replaced with the correct character.

You can find more information about this and related topics at Wikipedia:Categories#Special sorting. Feel free to let me know if you have any questions about this. --Auntof6 (talk) 06:20, 3 February 2014 (UTC)

Sir Valiant

In case I missed something, what was it about this page that looked like a test page? It didn't look like a test page to me, so I declined the QD. It might qualify under a different reason, though.

By the way, could you please archive your talk page? It's getting pretty long, and pages over a certain size (I don't know what size) are hard to edit. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 01:09, 14 February 2014 (UTC)

I'm scare I might screw-up. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 02:33, 14 February 2014 (UTC)
What do you think you might screw up, the archiving? If you make a mistake, it can be undone. If you'd like some help with it, I can help. You could do a manual archive, or you could set up automatic archiving. Let me know if you'd like help with it, and what kind of help. --Auntof6 (talk) 03:41, 14 February 2014 (UTC)
Manuel archive. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 03:57, 14 February 2014 (UTC)
Well, you would create one or more subpages of your user talk page, and move old conversations there. You could have more than one page, based on the dates of the conversations. As an example, my talk page is archived by year. That means that each archived conversation is on a page like User_talk:Auntof6/Archives/2013. (That page is also kind of long, but the archives don't get accessed very often so it's not as much of a problem.) I could do it for you if you like, but it would be good if you were able to take care of it yourself so you could maintain them going forward.
I'd really recommend automated archiving, though. You could set it up so that conversations are archived when no one has posted in them for a number of days that you determine. The archive pages could be by year, like mine, or by month, like Osiris'. There are other options, too.
So what do you think? If you'd like me to do some archiving for you, whether manual or setting up the automated process, let me know. I don't want to do it without you specifically asking me. --Auntof6 (talk) 05:33, 14 February 2014 (UTC)
I think it be best if you do it. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 23:44, 14 February 2014 (UTC)
OK, I set up automated archiving. I set it up to archive any section that hasn't been posted to in at least three weeks. The bot that does the archiving should run some time later today. --Auntof6 (talk) 11:03, 15 February 2014 (UTC)

Huntsman spider at DYK

Why did you remove the entry for Huntsman spider? I thought it was pretty good, and the points I raised were things that could be taken care of.

Hi! I don't want to interrupt your work, but could you please take a look at some of the changes I've been making to the articles you just created? I'm assuming you're still using the English Wikipedia as a source? There are a few dead links in some of the "External links" sections, so it'd be good if you could do a quick check before you add them here. You can do this using – I've just used Elmer Bernstein as an example. Don't forget attribution if you are indeed using the English Wikipedia articles.

Also, when the title has diacritics, remember to leave them off in the sort key description (like here, "Alvarez" instead of "Álvarez").

If you mention the date of birth in the opening sentence, you don't need to mention it anywhere else in the lead section (example). Can you also clarify what "the Beirut riding" means on Rachid Solh? Thanks, Osiris (talk) 03:39, 28 February 2014 (UTC)

Sorry, must have gotten a little carried away. I'll be aware of my changes. Thanks. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 03:42, 28 February 2014 (UTC)
So, um.. I just wanted to make sure that you read all of my message...? You're still repeating the birth date or the death date on some articles – Edward J. Walsh, Lee Konitz, Sonny Rollins and ‎Phil Woods for example. And attribution is still missing. The article on Woods is also bare. There's no mention of why he's notable... I think you're rushing things again, because I'm having to follow after you and fix things. I think a lot of your new pages are starting to get more and more complex as well, without any explanation for complex terms. Like Sonny Rollins is just the exact same introduction as the English Wikipedia. You could take a bit more time to make sure that they're simple enough. Osiris (talk) 05:10, 1 March 2014 (UTC)
Oh, okay sorry. I'll start on in it. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 05:13, 1 March 2014 (UTC)
Have a look at the changes I made to simplify First inauguration of Ronald Reagan and Second inauguration of Ronald Reagan. That might give you some ideas. All of the rest are really close to the English Wikipedia's versions. Osiris (talk) 05:38, 1 March 2014 (UTC)
I had. Thanks. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 05:39, 1 March 2014 (UTC)
Okay, well, you just explain to me what the plan is then? 'Cause I feel like I'm being ignored. Are you going to go back and start on simplifying later? If so I'll stop and let you do it, because I'm quite backlogged as it is with fixing newbie contributions. And the missing attribution, it looks like it goes back to late last year. Osiris (talk) 06:14, 1 March 2014 (UTC)
I've been going back and simplifying the articles. I'll start adding attributions toward the EW. You are not being ignored. Thanks for the advice. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 06:17, 1 March 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. I don't mean to be pushy. I took a week or so off before Christmas and I've been playing catch-up ever since. Your articles used to be easy to pass by, but they've recently been getting to be more and more work. In December, for example, you created a bunch of articles on cancer (like Duodenal cancer and Esophageal cancer). They've all got really complex medical terms in them, all unexplained, and the content is almost exactly the same as the versions on the English Wikipedia, except for a few words at the beginning. And none of them have attribution. What should I do? Normally I would quick-delete things like that. There are other problems with it too. One of the only changes you made on Anal cancer, for example, was to change "It is a distinct entity from the more common colorectal cancer" to "It is caused by colorectal cancer" – totally different in meaning. And the sentence where the other article goes onto explain how the two cancers are "distinct" ("The etiology, risk factors, clinical progression, staging, and treatment are all different.") is retained in your version without any real context. All of this could probably be put down to rushing things. Osiris (talk) 06:38, 1 March 2014 (UTC)
Okay, I'll start fixing those articles too. I'm currently working on my presidential inaugural articles simplification process. I'll start on those cancer articles tomorrow. Thanks for the advice. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 06:41, 1 March 2014 (UTC)
Okay. If you need help, just let us know. Osiris (talk) 06:45, 1 March 2014 (UTC)

I hate to be a nuisance but what is happening with this? You're still doing most of the things that I pointed out above, and I can't see that you've really even begun to fix the earlier ones. Do you have any questions, or need any help with it? New examples since my last message above: the diacritics in the sort key on Jürgen Möllemann; the date repetition on Robert Sumner and Ryhor Baradulin; attribution is missing more often than not, even though they're all quite clearly copied from the English Wikipedia. And the copying is a major issue. You're getting better at making sentences shorter, but you need to take care with it and rework the actual phrasing and vocabulary too. Otherwise they're just exerpts, and in some cases muddled exerpts at that. Look at Gordon Tullock; you changed "...public choice theory, the application of economic thinking to political issues" to "...public choice theory. The theory was about the thinking to political issues." Great to see shorter sentences, but the sentence clearly does not make sense. Grammar needs a lot of work – in the same article, "another fellow economist"; in Oath of office of the President of the United States, "It must be done because it is order[ed] by the United States Constitution"; Molly Bobak, "to be sent in[to] a battlefield"; The Reagan Diaries; "For eight years as President, Ronald Reagan, and during those eight years, Reagan wrote in his diary". These are just examples. Most of the time there is barely ten minutes between creating pages. I suggest, again, that you take a bit more time to proof-read what you've written, check the grammar, check that the language is simple and coherent. Rushing things just creates work for other people. Even more so than on the regular English Wikipedia, the language here needs to be correct. I strongly recommend that you focus on going back over some of the pages that you've done and fixing the issues that I pointed out. Including the attributions that are missing. Osiris (talk) 11:55, 6 March 2014 (UTC)

Sorry, I've been sick lately and using a laptop in bed isn't as comfy. I'll fix all those problems now. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 22:43, 6 March 2014 (UTC)

Articles about political office-holders

Please try to write these articles in a way that the text won't go out of date. For example, first say that the person is a politician (American politician, French politician, or whatever), then say something like "In 2012, he was elected Governor of Foo". The word "current" (or "currently", etc.) should be avoided. For more on this, see the guideline on relative time references. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 07:18, 16 March 2014 (UTC)

I've tagged this article as needing expansion because the text doesn't really indicate why he was notable -- could you add something to show that? For help, you can see en:WP:NFOOTBALL. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 01:44, 22 March 2014 (UTC)

Big Weekend

Hi, TDKR, how's it going? I would like to ask you if you would be interested in this. --Reception123/Receptie123 (talk) 05:51, 12 April 2014 (UTC)

As I presume that you don't really know how a Big Weekend works I will explain.
  1. There is a coordinator (in this case me) who keeps track of all new pages and edits to pages in relation to the subject of the Big Weekend (I will do it on User:Reception123/Big Lakes Weekend)
  2. Users who contribute have to put a code in the change summary so that the coordinator knows that they are doing it for the Big Weekend (in this case the code is BLW)
  3. At the end the coordinator counts up the pages and changes (they are automatically numbered) and sees how many they are.
  4. In the conclusion this is a fun even to participate in. --Reception123/Receptie123 (talk) 11:16, 13 April 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 18:12, 13 April 2014 (UTC)

Frank Lloyd Wright-Prairie School of Architecture Historic District

This article is not about a school. In this case, the term "school of architecture" means "type of architecture". The word is used kind of like it is in the phrase "school of thought". The district that the article is about has a lot of buildings designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. I've taken the article out of the "Schools in Illinois" category. See if you can find another article to put in the category so that it still has three articles. Keep in mind that, for our purposes, "school" means an educational institution up through secondary education: it does not mean colleges or universities. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 08:09, 12 April 2014 (UTC)


Hey, when you write about where something is, would you not use the word "located"? Instead of saying "X is located in Y", just say "X is in Y". The extra word isn't really needed, and leaving it out makes text simpler. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 21:37, 17 April 2014 (UTC)

Categorizing templates

Hi, TDKR. When you create a template, please be sure to categorize it completely. Most templates need at least two categories. All templates need one or more "template categories" to indicate what kind of template it is (such as a navigational box, infobox, typing aid, external link, etc.). Most templates also need one or more "content categories" to indicate what the subject of the template is. Sometimes those can be combined in one category. Two templates you recently created, {{SAG Presidents}} and {{Gabriel García Márquez}}, didn't have template categories, so I added them.

Also, when putting a template in a category that is not a template category, the correct sort key to use is "τ" (a lower-case Greek letter tau), not a space or an asterisk. This is desribed at Wikipedia:Categories#Special sorting under "Special character sort keys". You can get the tau character from the Wikipedia edit screen under "Special characters" (between "Advanced" and "Help"). Another way to get it is to substitute the template {{tau}}. To do that, you would code this for the sort key: {{subst:tau}}.

Please let me know if you have any questions about this. Thanks! --Auntof6 (talk) 00:06, 19 April 2014 (UTC)

Category:Independent (United States)

You created this category a while back. Did you intend it to be for members of the American Independent Party, or for people who aren't a member of any party? --Auntof6 (talk) 11:57, 21 April 2014 (UTC)

People who aren't a member of any party. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 21:05, 21 April 2014 (UTC)
OK. Just so you know, I'm going to take that category and its subcat off of pages where it's not supported. The category probably needs renaming as well, but I'm not sure what a better name would be. I'm not sure it's even meaningful to have the category. --Auntof6 (talk) 01:37, 22 April 2014 (UTC)

Categorizing articles in same-named categories

I was looking at Category:Mark Twain, which you created. I saw that you put the wrong sort key for the article Mark Twain, so I fixed it. When you have an article in a category that has the same name as the article, the correct sort key to use is a space, not an asterisk. You can read about this and other special sort keys at Wikipedia:Categories#Special sorting, under "Special character sort keys". Let me know if you have any questions about this. Thanks! --Auntof6 (talk) 02:34, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

Articles about settlements, such as cities

When you create an article about a city or other settlement, please try to include more than just "X is a city in Y". In the past, we have discouraged creating this kind of article because they don't give much meaningful information beyond what you get from just seeing the title. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 05:20, 1 May 2014 (UTC)

There's nothing in M. V. Devan that indicates why he was notable. Please add something to show that, and keep this in mind for all articles you create. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 03:53, 2 May 2014 (UTC)

Commons tags

In Al Quie, you included a Commons tag in the "Other websites" section. However, the link doesn't go anywhere -- there is no Commons category called "Al Quie". Please don't include those tags if there isn't a category. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 01:21, 7 May 2014 (UTC)

Oh I'm very sorry I thought I was commons tags on the English Wikipedia. Silly mistake, sorry. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 01:22, 7 May 2014 (UTC)
I'm not sure I understand what you mean, but it's easy to check. Put the tag in the article and preview it without saving. Click on the link -- if it goes to an existing category then make sure it's for the person you're writing about (not someone else with the same name). If it's for that person then leave it, otherwise take it back out. It's actually good to have the tags everywhere that's appropriate, though, so thanks for even thinking of it! --Auntof6 (talk) 01:30, 7 May 2014 (UTC)
Sorry again. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 01:33, 7 May 2014 (UTC)

BLPs need references

When you create an article about a living person, such as Annie Parisse, it needs to have at least one reference that directly supports a statement in the article about the person. It's not really OK to create an article with the tag saying it doesn't have references -- that just shows that you knew you were doing something wrong. If there is an enwiki article about the person, you should be able to find references there, even if you aren't basing your article on that one. Please be sure to include at least one reference in all BLP articles. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 10:06, 7 June 2014 (UTC)

Updating articles when a person dies

When you update BLPs about people when they die, please make sure to make the verbs correct in the entire article. In Ruby Dee, you changed some of them, but left "she has performed" and "she has acted". The grammatical term for that is "present perfect". It is used with people who are still alive because it implies that there could be more to come of whatever the action is. If you're interested, you can read about this at en:Uses of English verb forms#Present perfect. I updated the Ruby Dee article, but please make sure to take care of this when you update other articles of people who die. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 16:31, 17 June 2014 (UTC)

Oberdan Cattani

Be careful assigning categories about where people are from. Some countries have cities and states with the same names. I see that a lot with Japan and certain South American countries. In this case, the person was from the state of São Paulo (São Paulo (state)), not São Paulo the city. Category:People from São Paulo is for people from the city, so I changed the category because this person is from a different place in the state. --Auntof6 (talk) 05:32, 22 June 2014 (UTC)

I'm not vandalizing the pages I'm resorting them. She never starred in the movie and plus you're the won vandalizing the articles. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 07:20, 23 June 2014 (UTC)
No, I'm fixing errors. So please, kindly, go away. --Chinese man 38202 (talk) 07:22, 23 June 2014 (UTC)
What errors you're vandalizing the articles. I'm a patroller to restore pages from vandals like you. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 07:23, 23 June 2014 (UTC)
No, you're an idiot. Maybe you should actually SEARCH UP THE THINGS I FIX ON GOOGLE BEFORE you revert them, and you'll see that I'm just FIXING ERRORS. Grow up, will you? --Chinese man 38202 (talk) 07:26, 23 June 2014 (UTC)
So you're saying Linda Lovelace starred in a 2010 animated family movie which was released 8 years after her death and that basketball star Dirk Nowitzki is "currently" married to her even though she's dead. Maybe you're the one that should look up google about these so-called facts. I'm sorry, but you're the one needing growing-up, making up excuses to unblock yourself like saying a fellow user is threatening you or threatening to block a patroller even though you're not an administrator. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 07:30, 23 June 2014 (UTC)

Please stop

Hi, please do not add senseless stubs on other language versions without useful content or content anymore and stick to the language version you belong to. As a global sysop I had to clean out a lot of usesless content you created crosswiki upon request and after research. Thank you for your cooperation in advance. MoiraMoira (talk) 07:41, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) I know I shouldn't get into this discussion but I think that Vandalism is a very strong word. I know TDKR Chiago and he would never actually Vandalize anything. --Reception123/Receptie123 (talk) 08:15, 3 July 2014 (UTC)
Some of my colleagues and I have noticed the blocks and I have contacted MoiraMoira about them. I see no vandalism and I see quite a lot of good stubs around. I am in the process of reverting the blocks, there's no hurry and if there are any issues, discussing them with TDKR seems more productive than administrative action. Snowolf How can I help? 15:28, 3 July 2014 (UTC)
I have unblocked you on all but two of the wikis you were blocked in. You remain blocked in nawiki and in gvwiki, where you were blocked back in mid-late 2013. I think before anything else can happen we ought to discuss things and allow for time to comment from Moira and TDKR. Snowolf How can I help? 15:43, 3 July 2014 (UTC)
Was there even a discussion about blocking and deleting all those pages? PiRSquared17 (talk) 20:35, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

random hi

hi was nosing on your page and thought I would ask was Lincoln born in Illinois? I'm British so have NO idea. Lol.

But yes hi. :)
Lincoln was born in Kentucky and raised in Illinois. Thanks for the greetings. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 05:49, 6 July 2014 (UTC)


Hi there.

You have been on Wikipedia for a while now. I would like to nominate you for adminship. What do you say? A2 03:07, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

I'd be extremely honored. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 03:10, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
Ok. I will post on the Request for permissions section of this wiki. A2 04:32, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 04:35, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
As of right now I don't quite know what to put for {{subst:REVISIONUSER}} when requesting you for adminship. You may want to request yourself and then I will support you as the candidate. Thanks. A2 04:41, 17 July 2014


I'm trying to but I'm having troubles with a template. Maybe we can ask an expert user like Auntof6. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 04:53, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
I asked the user now. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 04:56, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
I saw the message you left me. Anyways, I don't know what to put for {{subst:REVISIONUSER}} and the instructions that you sent me don't say what to put in that space. We should ask around for a bit... A2 19:01, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
Okay. Write back when you find something out. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 19:03, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

What's wrong with you?

I heard that on MSN. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 02:54, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) Then maybe a source would have been a good idea. With breaking-news stories like this, sources are always a good idea. --Auntof6 (talk) 04:29, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
Sorry then. Even though this message was a little unkind. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 04:51, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
Don't feel sorry for yourself. It was an unsensible edit you did, and an encyclopedia unworthy. Hundreds of innocent civilians died in that act of war and there's no serious source that holds Ukraine accountable. If MSN did, then you beter skip them from your list of reliable resources. Until now any statement on who did it is pure speculation if not worse. Ophedi (talk) 18:29, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
Okay calm down. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 18:31, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
Saying sorry and telling that you'll try to be more sensible next time, will be a beter medicine for that sake. Ophedi (talk) 18:43, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
I said sorry. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 18:52, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
I understood it as a sorry for not using sources, but now you've cleared that out. It's allright now. Cheers, Ophedi (talk) 21:41, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

Lego movie sequel

Hey, TDKR, I redirected your new article on this movie to the section about a sequel in the article about the first movie. The reason is that the movie is so far in the future and doesn't appear to meet the criteria for notability of future movies. If you can find any sources that establish notability per the future film guideline, you can put the article back. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 07:31, 2 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanks. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 08:23, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

Articles whose titles have special characters, diacritics, etc.

I've been working on some cleanup stuff, such as defaultsorts. Did you know that when an article on this Wikipedia (or on English Wikipedia) has a title that includes special characters, it usually needs a defaultsort or other sort key with those characters replaced? I'm mentioning this to you because I noticed that a couple of the articles I had to change (Vladimír Čech and Zafer Önen) were created by you. There might have been more, because I didn't check all of them. Don't feel bad, though: I don't think most of our editors here know about that. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 01:15, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

Robin Williams

If you're going to include details about a suicide, please include a reference. For now, I have removed the details about Williams's suicide. Feel free to put them back when you have a reference. You might check news organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area, because Williams lived there and they're covering it pretty intensively. --Auntof6 (talk) 21:29, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

Once again, please use the recent death template appropriately

Lauren Bacall did not need the {{Recent death}} template. The purpose of that template is not to let people know that a person died recently. Having the death date in the article does that. The purpose of the template is to point out that the article is undergoing a lot of change related to a recent death. The article on Bacall was not getting a lot of changes, and was not likely to because her death was not controversial or particularly unexpected (it is common for elderly people to die from strokes).

The article on Robin Williams is a good example of when it is appropriate to use the template. There is still news coming out related to his death, so it should probably stay on for a bit.

Any time you're thinking of using the {{Recent death}} template, please review the documentation first to make sure you are using it appropriately. It explains what I said above. Thank you. --Auntof6 (talk) 19:51, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

I see you also used it on other article besides Williams and Bacall. Most of them did not need the template. --Auntof6 (talk) 19:58, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for coming here. I made some changes to Posey and Momoa so that it can met Wikipedia standards. As a suggestion maybe you can add an image, if able to, of the subject so that the readers know how the subject looks like. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 04:22, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks! How are my contribs? Do they look okay for now? Umafiy (talk) 04:34, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

Please do move it. I appreciate it! --Umafiy (talk) 15:00, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

He George, I was wondering maybe for September we should have it on the Deaths in 2014 page and when the month is over the create Deaths in September 2014 and so on for the next months. What I saying is that Death in 2014 should have deaths for the current month and when that month ends we create Deaths in (month's name) 2014. Just like what the Wikipedia has. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 07:06, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
Sounds good, but we probably need to check with our overlord, Auntof6, first. George.Edward.C (talk) (contribs) 07:09, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanks! Everything I did was correct? Any mistakes? What could I have done better? Umafiy (talk) 04:21, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
You're getting good at creating articles. The only thing I have to say is try to add links (adding [[ ]]) in a article and add a picture. Other than that you're getting to be a good user. Maybe, they might soon promote you as patroller. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 04:24, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
Yeah! I asked Auntof6 how many articles need to be created. Do you know? Umafiy (talk) 04:26, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
Not that much I think, when I was promoted it took about two months or less to promoted and I created about at least two articles per day. I'm not sure if things has changed. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 04:28, 26 August 2014 (UTC)


Check this new article I created out? I even added an image! What else should I do to it? --Umafiy (talk) 01:35, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

There's nothing to be said. It's perfect, in my opinion. You're getting better. Keep up the good work. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 01:52, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

TDKR, I see that you marked this article as patrolled. It was not nearly simplified enough from enwiki and should not have been patrolled yet. I have moved it to the creator's userspace for him/her to work on. I'm kind of surprised you patrolled it, because I thought you had a better understanding of what is simple enough for this Wiki. If I see that you are patrolling articles because you are friends with the user, I will revoke your patroller right. --Auntof6 (talk) 02:08, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

No that's not the case Auntof6, I read and I did believe the article was simplified. As I was doing so my screen froze and some glitches appeared. I didn't realized I patrolled it until the small icon that says patrolled wasn't their. My mistake. I'll be more prefund next time. I have simplified many articles and patrolled them. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 02:14, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
OK, thanks for the explanation. Did you compare it to the enwiki version? Very little was changed. I'm in the process of putting some notes on the talk page about how to simplify. If you look at them, let me know if you have any questions. --Auntof6 (talk) 02:35, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. I assumed it was simplified so I was in the process of editing it until those glitches appeared. Sorry for the trouble. Another excuse to get a new laptop! --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 02:36, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
I had to get a new laptop earlier this year, because of the Windows XP support ending. It's actually my first laptop -- I always had desktops before. Have fun shopping! --Auntof6 (talk) 02:50, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

Recent death tag

You are still using {{Recent death}} inappropriately. As I have pointed out before, the purpose of that template is not to point out what people have died recently. It is to caution readers that an article is undergoing a lot of change, usually by multiple editors. If the article is not changing a lot (and "a lot" means something on the order of minute to minute, not a few times in one day), it does not need this tag. How can I get through to you on this? Please go check all the articles in Category:Recent deaths and take the tag off of the ones you added it to that don't need it (hint: that's all of the ones you added it to). --Auntof6 (talk) 09:22, 5 September 2014 (UTC)

I haven't been using the tag. I added it to Steven Sotloff because they were uncertain when he died. Plus I do think recent death tags are appropriate for his situation. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 12:20, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
Of the four pages in the category, you added the tag to two of them. One, James Foley (photojournalist), is a page you created with the tag -- that article hasn't been changed in two weeks. Please read the documentation for the template, particularly the part in bold. The point of the template is to flag articles where information about a recent death is being very frequently edited by multiple editors and the information may not be accurate. That is not the case for any of the articles in the category right now. Even the one on Joan Rivers, which has several edits, was not being changed enough to need the tag. Please take the tag off of the two you put it on, and when you do place it, remember to go back and take it off as soon as possible. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 15:42, 5 September 2014 (UTC)

Nationalities of people in the deaths articles (and even other places)

I am leaving this message for George.Edward.C, Jonny Nixon, and TDKR Chicago 101, because you three have been making most of the changes to articles like Deaths in 2014.

When you link the nationality or ethnicity of a person, please try to make sure that the link is not to a disambiguation page (also called "dab page"). There are a lot of words that can be nationalities or ethnicities, but which can also be other things (like languages, cuisine, etc.). Right now on the Deaths in 2014 page, there are links to Indian, Polish, and Serbian, all of which are dab pages. Looking at those dab pages, those links should be piped to go to India, Poles, and Serbia, respectively.

Here is a list of pages that might be used as nationalities, ethnicities, or something similar, but which are dab pages:

Albanian, Arabic, Aragonese, Armenian, Assamese, Asturian, Azerbaijani, Baltic, Belarusian, Bengali, Bulgarian, Burmese, Cantonese, Catalan, Celtic, Chinese, Corsican, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Estonian, Faroese, Fijian, Filipino, Finnish, Flemish, French, Georgian, German, Greek, Greenlandic, Hakka, Hawaiian, Hungarian, Icelandic, Indian, Indonesian, Irish, Italian, Japanese, Javanese, Khmer, Kurdish, Leonese, Malay, Maltese, Māori, Moldovan, Neapolitan, Nepali, Norwegian, Persian, Polish, Portuguese, Punjabi, Romanian, Russian, Sami, Semitic, Serbian, Sicilian, Sindhi, Slavic, Slovak, Slovene, Spanish, Swahili, Swedish, Tamil, Thai, Tibetan, Turkish, Ukrainian, Uzbek, Valencian, Venetian, Vietnamese

It can be hard to spot links to dab pages. I have something in my monobook.js file that highlights dab pages in yellow (as well as highlighting a few other things like redirects in other colors). You are welcome to copy it if you want. I think all you would need to do is add these two lines into your js file:


You might want to make your own copies of the individual link classifier files, because I don't guarantee anything about the copies I have.

Thanks, and let me know if you have any questions about this. --Auntof6 (talk) 22:15, 14 September 2014 (UTC)

Steven Sotloff

You left the recent death tag on this article for three weeks. As yet another reminder, this template is to be used only "in cases where many editors (perhaps dozens or more) are editing the article on the same day, and it should be removed as soon as the editing goes down to a normal level again". It says that right in the documentation for the template. The template is not to be used on every article about a person who has just died. You are the only person who edited the article after Sotloff died until I removed the template just now, so the template didn't need to be there in the first place. I know I have brought this up to you many times before. What can I do to get through to you so that you understand how this template is to be used? --Auntof6 (talk) 02:47, 25 September 2014 (UTC)

TDKR, I'm sorry. That came out harsher than it needed to be. I've just been frustrated lately by things that are meant to be temporary getting left on articles. You do need to watch this, but I could have been nicer about it. --Auntof6 (talk) 04:36, 25 September 2014 (UTC)

Subdivisions of Chicago

I was looking at random articles, and came across Near West Side, Chicago, which is described as a neighborhood of Chicago. I thought I'd try expanding it. When I looked at the enwiki article, I saw that it is actually considered a community area, not a neighborhood. Looking further, I saw that there are several more entries in Category:Neighborhoods in Chicago that appear to be community areas and not neighborhoods, and at least one, South Side, Chicago, that is a district. I think we should use the correct terms for these. Before I make the change, I thought I'd ask if you have any input on this. Let me know. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 02:17, 30 September 2014 (UTC)

José Rafael Cordero Sánchez

I saw that you tagged this article as possibly not being notable enough. Do you have reason to think that El Venezolano or the other sources cited are not reliable? --Auntof6 (talk) 23:53, 5 October 2014 (UTC)

The article is about a YouTube star that became famous over one video. He does not have a Spanish or English Wikipedia article. But if you feel he is notable then remove the tag. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 01:35, 6 October 2014 (UTC)
I don't know if he's notable. I just wondered if you were familiar with any of the three sources used. I read the sources, and it seems he has done more than just the video, but I don't know if he's notable. --Auntof6 (talk) 02:34, 6 October 2014 (UTC)

A couple of notes in keeping language simple

Hi, TDKR. I was just looking at the new article Stephen Collins. (Sad case, that, if it's true.) I just wanted to give you some notes based on what I saw there.

  • When writing about what someone has said, use the word "say" or a form of it such as "said". That is preferred to words like "stated", "claimed", "revealed", etc.
  • In each paragraph, it reads better if the first mention of the article's subject uses a noun instead of a pronoun. In articles about a person, instead of starting a paragraph with "he", "she", "they", etc., use the person's name. In articles about other things, use the name of the thing or something like "the company", "the city", etc.
  • Link to important terms. In Stephen Collins, I added links for sexual abuse, television series, and media.
  • Keep things simple. It's easy to use phrases we hear in the news every day, like "leaked" (when someone gets information they weren't meant to have), or "minor" when talking about a child, but that doesn't mean anything to a person who doesn't know English well. Also leave out words that aren't necessary. I removed "long-running", "short-lived", and one or two other things that didn't really help the article.

Any questions? --Auntof6 (talk) 17:32, 19 October 2014 (UTC)

  • Nope, I don't have anything to ask you. Thanks for the help. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 17:41, 19 October 2014 (UTC)

Categorize settlements (cities, etc.)

I recategorized your new category for Botswana cities to be directly under Botswana instead of under geography. I know that cities and other settlements do fall under political geography, but the geography categories here are for physical geography (mountains, rivers, etc.). I know other Wikimedia projects do it differently, but that's how we do it here. Let me know if you have any questions. --Auntof6 (talk) 23:59, 26 October 2014 (UTC)

Robin Williams

I undid some of your changes to this article because I believe you misinterpreted the news reports. Williams was found to have the physical characteristics of Lewy body dementia, yes, but saying just that he "had dementia" gives a wrong impression. As far as the hallucinations causing his suicide, the title of the article says that, but if you read the article you'll see that it says it could have been caused by them.

Hey TDKR, couldn't you have rollback as a revert tool. You can revert vandalism, you know. Angela Maureen (talk) 23:45, 4 December 2014 (UTC)

I never knew that, but I'm not a rollbacker (hope that's the proper term). :( --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 00:47, 5 December 2014 (UTC)


Hey. I nommed a DYK hook. What do you think? Any tips? Eurodyne (talk) 00:55, 5 December 2014 (UTC)

Does that mean I have successfully nominated one hook? Who can review these hooks? Any editor? Eurodyne (talk) 01:05, 5 December 2014 (UTC)
Yes any editor can review these hooks and so far you have successfully nominated one hook, but a few more suggestions from different editors may help, but since the DYK has been forgotten or ignored I think one is all we need. Can you review my hooks so that we can update the queues. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 01:09, 5 December 2014 (UTC)
Sure! I'll do that now! Eurodyne (talk) 01:48, 5 December 2014 (UTC)

Good Articles

Can you see Wikipedia talk:Proposed good articles and answer my question there? Eurodyne (talk) 02:00, 6 December 2014 (UTC)

I need help

I'm gonna need help to establish notability on two pages: Regina Resnik and Rita Reys. I can't seem to get proper sources for them. Angela Maureen (talk) 08:16, 9 December 2014 (UTC)
