Warning[change source]

I don't think you got permission to edit that template. --Jollyeditor (talk) 03:25, 31 March 2019 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) She didn't explicitly need permission to edit that template - Jollyeditor, this is an encyclopedia that anyone can edit; consensus for every edit isn't needed. Hiàn (talk) 03:57, 31 March 2019 (UTC)
@Hiàn: In general that's true, but there should be discussion before changing this kind of thing. --Auntof6 (talk) 04:54, 31 March 2019 (UTC)
@Auntof6: I was not addressing the template directly - I was addressing Jollyeditor's statement that she didn't get permission. I don't object to gaining consensus for a change like this. Hiàn (talk) 17:20, 31 March 2019 (UTC)

March 2019[change source]

It's not done to attribute when the original article is 30x longer than our version, and we have only a few lines. Otherwise it loses its point. Virtually every article uses something from English wiki, indeed they are supposed to. Attribution is really for occasions when large chunks have been translated into simple e. onto our pages. Macdonald-ross (talk) 15:31, 31 March 2019 (UTC)

@Macdonald-ross: It's not so much the amount that was copied as how close the wording is and how much original work went into creating the article here. Plus, let's not discourage people from including attribution when we already have people who forget it or don't even know about including it. --Auntof6 (talk) 19:42, 31 March 2019 (UTC)

Büttenhardt[change source]

Hello. Sorry to bother you. Can you help put the pictures in the rights spots on this page please. I don't know how to do it. Büttenhardt is the page. Thank you.

I wish I could. But you better ask an administrator on this one. Angela Maureen (talk) 09:32, 2 April 2019 (UTC)

Hi[change source]

Ok very sorry for test

Attribution[change source]

Have you been intending to add attribution to those articles you are creating? Your edit summary says adding english attributes, but all you added to the pages were the talk header template. -DJSasso (talk) 15:04, 8 April 2019 (UTC)

Yes. I was meaning to add attribution. Angela Maureen (talk) 15:26, 8 April 2019 (UTC)
Then please do so soon, before creating other articles. You might not have known, but copying an article from one Wikipedia to another is allowed only if attribution (not "attributes") is given. If it is not given, the copy is technically a copyright violation: the article can be deleted, and/or we can get into legal trouble. --Auntof6 (talk) 08:25, 9 April 2019 (UTC)
Really I only meant the few you had just done. I didn't mean going back over everything you ever touched. And since you have been doing that, I have to point out that you are saying those articles you did were based on the most recent versions of those articles when some of them you haven't touched since 2011 etc so what you are adding to all those pages is incorrect. -DJSasso (talk) 18:22, 10 April 2019 (UTC)
Angela, it looks like you're still adding invalid attribution information. Here's an example of what Djsasso is talking about, using Samuel L. Jackson as an example:
  • 17:36, 27 March 2012‎: you created the article here. At that time, the latest timestamp on the enwiki article was 22:09, 28 February 2012. The article here must have been based on that version of the enwiki article or on an earlier one (only you would know that).
  • 08:44, 13 April 2019: You added attribution to the talk page, pointing to the enwiki article with a timestamp of 18:29, 10 April 2019. As of the time I'm writing this, that's the current version.
  • In the seven years between the time the article was created here and the time you added the attribution, the enwiki article was changed hundreds of times. The article here was based on the version at enwiki that existed when the article was created. However, the attribution points to the version that's current now. That version didn't exist yet when the article was created, so the article here can't have been based on it. The attribution needs to point to the version of the article that was used as the basis for the article.
Let me know if you have any questions about this. --Auntof6 (talk) 12:23, 13 April 2019 (UTC)

Your talk page[change source]

Angela, you are allowed to remove whatever you want from your talk page. However, instead of removing the warning you received (especially with an edit summary saying that it was insulting), you could have taken the opportunity to figure out why User:Examknow thought you weren't assuming good faith. The reason is that 1) you reverted some edits by an IP user, but left a warning on the talk page of a different IP user, and 2) the edits you reverted weren't really bad enough for the warning level you chose. If you want to show good faith, you could acknowledge the mistake on the talk page where you left the warning. Then you could leave a lower-level warning on the correct user talk page if you want. --Auntof6 (talk) 05:59, 6 May 2019 (UTC)

Mighty Ducks of Anaheim[change source]

Hi Tropical Storm Angela.

You recently reverted a lot of my edits where I corrected the former name of the Anaheim hockey team to "Mighty Ducks of Anaheim", from the typographical error "Anaheim Mighty Ducks". In case you are not a hockey fan, the Mighty Ducks were the only NHL hockey team to use this style of naming so it is common for it to be mistakenly written the wrong way. You can see the Anaheim Ducks article (or its equivalent on English Wikipedia) to review the naming history of this team.

It may have looked like vandalism because I am a new user and I am reverting the edits of DJSasso who is a highly permissioned user here, but these are completely legitimate and helpful fixes. As I intend to re-fix these mistakes, I ask that you not automatically revert them without taking the time to review the history of this team's name. "Anaheim Mighty Ducks" was never the official name of this team. Midnight whisper (talk) 18:14, 8 May 2019 (UTC)

Sorry 'bout that. I shoulda known. Thank you for reminding me. Angela Maureen (talk) 18:35, 8 May 2019 (UTC)
Your edits were actually ok. He fails to understand en:WP:COMMONNAME. In reliable sources the team was often called the Anaheim Mighty Ducks. Whether they were doing so mistakenly or not, they did it enough times that it was used more often than their official name which makes it the common name. And Wikipedia uses the common name over official names. -DJSasso (talk) 10:52, 9 May 2019 (UTC)

Estelle[change source]

I have undone your revert of my change to this page. My change used the correct heading for the external link-type section, and put the sections in the correct order. If you think this is wrong, please explain why before doing any further changes. --Auntof6 (talk) 08:09, 23 June 2019 (UTC)

@Auntof6:Its me that actually undone the revert, I believe it's its misclick of rollback.--Cohaf (talk) 08:12, 23 June 2019 (UTC)
@Cohaf: You're right: you must have made your change just before I clicked save/publish, so mine didn't take. --Auntof6 (talk) 08:15, 23 June 2019 (UTC)

movie or film[change source]

There is no 'rule' saying we have to call films a 'movie'. Please do not rename pages without a consensus as you did with Shirley Valentine (film). Brian R Hunter (talk) 02:36, 8 November 2019 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) @Brian R Hunter: Actually, we do use the term movie here instead of film I have renamed this article and will edit the text accordingly. --Auntof6 (talk) 03:15, 8 November 2019 (UTC)
Please can you point me at the WP page that states that. Brian R Hunter (talk) 03:20, 8 November 2019 (UTC)

About Special:diff/6735439[change source]

Can you tell me why you used the rollback right to revert this editing? Rollback only can use on revert vandalism, and I do not think that this editing is vandalism. So I hope you can explain it. Thank you very much. 轻语者 (talk) 08:04, 1 December 2019 (UTC)

I'm sorry. I didn't realize that I had reverted the edit on the page. I'm gonna be more cautious from now on. And Happy Holidays. Angela Maureen (talk) 08:24, 1 December 2019 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) Angela, there's a new-ish feature you might want to use. When you click/tap rollback, it asks you to confirm that you want to do the rollback. I know it has saved me from accidentally rolling things back a few times. If you'd like to use it, it's in your settings, on the appearance tab, in the advanced options section. The option is called "Show a confirmation prompt when clicking on a rollback link". Check the box, then save the changes. --Auntof6 (talk) 09:57, 1 December 2019 (UTC)

RfD nomination of Angie (movie)[change source]

An editor has requested deletion of Angie (movie), 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 the nomination (see also "What Wikipedia is not").

Please comment on the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/2020/Angie (movie) 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. Arthurfan828 - CHAT 20:20, 31 March 2020 (UTC)

A couple of things[change source]

Hi, Angela. I noticed that several of the articles you created recently have no references. Please be sure to add references when created new articles.

Also, a stub template should usually have two blank lines before it That makes it visually separate from any text that comes before it. An exceptions is when the stub template is right after a navigational box, because the border of the box is a good visual separation.

Thanks! --Auntof6 (talk) 04:12, 2 August 2020 (UTC)

Something...[change source]

Hi, @Tropical Storm Angela.

I am sorry to say this, but my name really is Jordan! Somebody had literally used my IP address to do vandalism back in 2019, and they also impersonated my full name! I am very sorry for this! Please understand this! 2601:4C4:4000:C420:ED67:A95E:C159:3F0 (talk) 03:42, 21 August 2020 (UTC)

Attribution is needed[change source]

Hello, Angela. When you use an enwiki article as the basis for an article here, you must include attribution. (Note that it's attribution, not attributes.) That is a legal requirement. If it is not done, then the article here can be considered a copyright violation and can be deleted. Higher up on this page I see two other reminders about this, and I know it was mentioned to you even before that. Please remember to do this. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 20:46, 23 August 2020 (UTC)

Your user page. My opinion on it[change source]

Hello. I just want to give you my opinion on your user page.

First of all you should tell your real name it if really dangerous. second of all, telling your age is not safe on wikipedia. thrid of all, people can identify very easily if they have looked into your userpage which could get you into trouble.

That is all. --Hamuyi (click for userpage) (talk (click for talkpage) 20:09, 24 August 2020 (UTC)

Buffalo Wild Wings[change source]

While simplifying this page, I noticed that you had changed a reference to specify that it linked to the Wayback Machine. References should never do that. The title and publisher should always refer to the original website, not the archived copy. If you have any questions about this, or you don't know what the Wayback Machine is, let me know. --Auntof6 (talk) 04:41, 3 September 2020 (UTC)

We sent you an e-mail[change source]

Hello Tropical Storm Angela,

Really sorry for the inconvenience. This is a gentle note to request that you check your email. We sent you a message titled "The Community Insights survey is coming!". If you have questions, email

You can see my explanation here.

Rapunzel...[change source]

Hello Angela, I added a few images I found to the page Rapunzel, which you recently edited. There is a section on what the story means, and how it shouuld be inerpreted, which we do not have yet. Do you think it would be worth adding the part? - Also, Gewrman Wikipedia refers to different plants, which used to be called "Rapunzel" as well; these are mostly salads, first of all rocket (roquette in French, rucola..) and secondly parsley. If you think it is worthwile, I can try translating part of the text of the German Wikipedia. What do you think? --Eptalon (talk) 15:43, 20 October 2020 (UTC)
