Signature[change source]

I noticed your signature had some red flags on it so I figured I'd rework it... Then I clicked publish and realized I wasn't done.... So... nevermind. HAHA! Operator873talkconnect 05:16, 26 March 2019 (UTC)

There. I converted to the span tags since the font tag is considered deprecated by... someone I suppose. Sorry for all the pings. Operator873talkconnect 05:27, 26 March 2019 (UTC)
Thank you! Yottie =talk= 07:29, 26 March 2019 (UTC)
How do I make small floating texts like the "Connect" or "Talk"? --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 18:16, 11 June 2020 (UTC)
I think you add < sup > and </ sup > (remove spaces) either side of the text. At least, if I understand what you are trying to do! --Yottie =talk= 19:23, 11 June 2020 (UTC)

French autoroutes[change source]

I noticed from your babel that you speak French fluently. Perhaps you can help me find some sources for basic info about the four I have created so far. Thanks, IWI (chat) 23:50, 22 June 2020 (UTC)

@ImprovedWikiImprovment: Yes, of course. I will have a look. --Yottie =talk= 10:53, 23 June 2020 (UTC)

Hello[change source]

Hello, I was wondering, some articles are on the English wiki but not here, can someone write an article from the en wiki using the same references but different words. Synoman Barris (talk) 11:12, 26 June 2020 (UTC)

@Synoman Barris: Hello, Yes, as long as the references are correct, you can reuse them. As long as you simplify the article, and attribute the article correctly, it should be fine! Happy editing! --Yottie =talk= 13:58, 26 June 2020 (UTC)

Big weekend[change source]

Thanks for organizing the new one! I'd been thinking it would be good to have another one, and you picked a good topic. --Auntof6 (talk) 02:50, 9 July 2020 (UTC)

@Auntof6: You're welcome! I thought it might be good fun, and references worked well last time. I'm surprised there haven't been any Big Weekends since the last one we did in 2016. Feel free to join in (and sign up on the Big Weekend talk page, if you would like). --Yottie =talk= 09:42, 9 July 2020 (UTC)
I'll try to participate, but maybe not as much as in previous years. A couple of years ago I started having trouble with my eyes, and sometimes it's hard to work on the computer for very long at a time. --Auntof6 (talk) 00:02, 13 July 2020 (UTC)
@Auntof6: I'm sorry to hear that. Even if it's just one edit, it will be more than welcome! --Yottie =talk= 06:50, 13 July 2020 (UTC)
So far it's more work than I expected but I like it well enough. Darkfrog24 (talk) 01:08, 20 July 2020 (UTC)
@Darkfrog24: You're doing a great job! Thank you very much for your help. We've already made good progress! --Yottie =talk= 06:45, 20 July 2020 (UTC)

Cluebot Archives[change source]

Hi! I'm trying to get this bot to work on my Archives, but for some reason, it's causing a red error on my talk page and I couldn't seem to get it to work. If through my persistent attempts and it still doesn't work, would you mind if I copy your code? — Infogapp1 (talk) 12:31, 11 July 2020 (UTC)

@Infogapp1: Hi! I wasn't aware I had any code to copy from! But by all means, if you find anything you need, go ahead. --Yottie =talk= 12:34, 11 July 2020 (UTC)
Hi again, what's the best way to tag or fix many citation issues in this article? It's my first time encountering so many citation issues in red, so I wasn't sure what to do about it. Many thanks. — Infogapp1 (talk) 21:11, 17 July 2020 (UTC)
@Infogapp1: Thanks for your message. Wow, that's a lot of issues! They all look pretty similar, though. It seems to be that they are using this (list defined references). I wonder whether the actual reference is missing (for example, it might have been omitted when the article was copied over and adapted from enwp or dewp (German wiki)). I'm on mobile right now, so it's not super convenient, but your best bet might be to look on one of those two wikis (probably German, given the refs seem to be in German) and see if you can find the references that those LDRs correspond to. I hope that helps a little! As for tagging, if you'd rather do that, you could use the "Article issues" template, or possibly the "citation style" template. If not, Category:Cleanup templates is a good place to look! Yottie =talk= 21:28, 17 July 2020 (UTC)
Thanks very much. I'll look into the sources and see what I can do. Thanks for the tips. — Infogapp1 (talk) 21:30, 17 July 2020 (UTC)

You’re certainly not going to get missed out. You improved 77 articles! Well done :) IWI (chat) 11:33, 22 July 2020 (UTC)
@ImprovedWikiImprovment: Thank you, much appreciated! On to the next Big Weekend.--Yottie =talk= 11:39, 22 July 2020 (UTC)

Thank you for taking the time to collate the statistics for this BW. Let me know if I can help with the numbers in future; Research:Quarry might be able to assist with the tedious counting. Chenzw  Talk  12:18, 22 July 2020 (UTC)
@Chenzw: Thank you very much. That sounds like a much better idea than setting RC to 5000 edits and filtering through them manually! Thank you for taking part, your edits were much appreciated. --Yottie =talk= 12:22, 22 July 2020 (UTC)
Well done for getting it organized, I was computerless for the weekend so only got a couple of edits in, Peterdownunder (talk) 13:16, 22 July 2020 (UTC)
@Peterdownunder: Thanks, Peter. Not to worry, all edits are helpful, small or big, few or many! Yottie =talk= 13:39, 22 July 2020 (UTC)

July 2020[change source]

Hello I just made an edit to Disneyland, tell me if I should remove it or change it. --ILoveCocomelon (talk) 17:53, 27 July 2020 (UTC)

@ILoveCocomelon: It looks fine to me, but I would encourage you to use simpler words. See this list for a good place to start. --Yottie =talk= 21:10, 27 July 2020 (UTC)

Big Weekend[change source]

I feel we should bring this on wiki. It will have to be the weekend of the 15th, as I will be in Wales with patchy internet from this Sunday for a week. I obviously don't have much experience in Big Weekends and could use your help in planning this. I think it should be World Heritage Sites and National Parks, the same as back in 2012. There are many missing articles and the list articles are outdated. I'll ping Macdonald-ross and Auntof6 here as we had discussed this on Macdonald-ross' talk page previously. IWI (chat) 00:19, 28 July 2020 (UTC)

@ImprovedWikiImprovment: That sounds good! I'm happy to help co-ordinate. I'll draw up some details this evening and maybe we can have a chat about it soon on IRC. --Yottie =talk= 06:38, 28 July 2020 (UTC)
Indeed. I will be free all week to talk it through :) Thanks for the help. IWI (chat) 12:59, 28 July 2020 (UTC)

Spanish Grand Prix[change source]

Hi, hope you are having a great weekend. I had to undo the edits by anon IP to this article because as per this diff, the editor has been removing a huge chunk of information present in the previous version. Let me know if you noticed anything that I may have missed though :) — Infogapp1 (talk) 18:49, 8 August 2020 (UTC)
