Welcome to my talk page.

userbox[change source]

I'm a roman-catholic, but I really like your HaShaem userbox and think it's really cool. Could I use it in my userpage? --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 02:01, 10 May 2020 (UTC)

Of course! It was made by StevenJ81, and the page to transclude it from is here. Best, Vermont (talk) 02:03, 10 May 2020 (UTC)
Does it work on meta and en-wiki? I get a redlink there --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 02:08, 10 May 2020 (UTC)
On meta it's {{Userpage-HaShem}}. Not sure about enwiki, I don't have a local userpage there. Best, Vermont (talk) 02:10, 10 May 2020 (UTC)

Thank You --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 02:11, 10 May 2020 (UTC)

How did you get the HaShem userbox to line up with the babel? on meta-wiki my HaShem userbox is smaller than the babel userboxes --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 16:39, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
Thegooduser, is it okay if I edit your userpage on meta to try and fix it? Vermont (talk) 16:40, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
Yes you can, thanks! --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 16:41, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
Thegooduser, I've messed around with it a bit in previews and couldn't find a way to change it. On my userpage on Meta, you can see that is very slightly smaller than the Babel ones, but because there's a handful of other userboxes there it's less noticeable. I have edited the Babel box on your userpage to remove the unnecessary duplicate headers; if you wanted those, please undo my edit. Best, Vermont (talk) 16:45, 21 May 2020 (UTC)

thanks for your edits --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 17:24, 21 May 2020 (UTC)

Just realised your userbox on your userpage are same size as babel ones, does each language babel have different size? --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 17:02, 22 May 2020 (UTC)
I'm not sure; I assume they are the same size. Vermont (talk) 17:16, 22 May 2020 (UTC)
I never knew you could speak russian until you recently added the babel userboxes. Oh and if a user is making personal attacks in non-artcle space, do I just not revert it and wait till they are blocked to revert? --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 17:18, 22 May 2020 (UTC)
It is usually best not to engage in revert wars with LTAs, yes, and to wait until they're blocked. In my view, an acceptable place to revert them is mainspace, especially if it is very bad vandalism, because we don't want readers to see it. Vermont (talk) 17:19, 22 May 2020 (UTC)

I program myself to only revert them once in non-article space, is one time bad? should I just ignore it and not revert it anytimes? --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 17:21, 22 May 2020 (UTC)

Just...it really doesn't matter that much. When you see an LTA making a lot of edits, report them to WP:VIP, and come onto IRC and ping the admins there with "!admin" if no one blocks them after a few minutes. If they're making very disruptive edits to articles, it may be best to revert them. It's not as though reverting them elsewhere or not reverting them elsewhere is inherently bad.

question[change source]

how do you see un-watchlisted pages? is it a separate watchlist you get? just wondering --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 02:27, 10 May 2020 (UTC)

I'm not sure I understand your question. Could you clarify what you mean by how I see un-watchlisted pages? Vermont (talk) 02:56, 10 May 2020 (UTC)
It says on wp:Administrators "they can see pages that are not on anyone's watchlist" --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 02:58, 10 May 2020 (UTC)
Oh. To be honest I have no idea what that refers to. Vermont (talk) 03:01, 10 May 2020 (UTC)
Found it! It refers to a list that only sysops can access of pages no one has on their watchlist. Presumably it's to be used to monitor those pages, as no editors would see the changes in their respective watchlists. Vermont (talk) 03:05, 10 May 2020 (UTC)
(edit conflict) It would be here, most likely -- not being an admin, I cannot see it, but I see the equivalent page at en:. Antandrus (talk) 03:06, 10 May 2020 (UTC)

Upage[change source]

Can a userpage be tagged as a g11? --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 18:56, 14 May 2020 (UTC)

Yep! The g means general, as in it can be used in any namespace. Vermont (talk) 19:01, 14 May 2020 (UTC)
Tagged a userpage as a g-11. thanks --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 19:04, 14 May 2020 (UTC)

question[change source]

I came across this and don't know what to do... --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 19:52, 22 May 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know. I've reverted them and left a note on their talk page. Vermont (talk) 21:38, 22 May 2020 (UTC)
