Belated[change | change source]

Hey Yottie. I completely missed your last comment on this thread, but I just noticed it today and it reminded me of some similar schemes on other wikis. On Wikinews, an article has to be reviewed and approved by a "reviewer" before it's published. The assessment scheme on enwiki is mainly for their WikiProjects, but it's also a nifty tool for encouraging quality. I think both schemes have elements that could be beneficial here if adjusted properly. I don't know if the idea would come to much in the practical sense, but it's interesting to think about. I'm often left thinking that simple may eventually have to adopt some stricter policies on language or at least put greater emphasis on it if it's going to continue achieving its goal. There's just too much unsupervised growth for such a small team to support, not enough focus on quality. Just thinking out loud, really.

There are a lot of freshwater fish on this page. Osiris (talk) 03:18, 6 October 2012 (UTC)

Haha at the fresh water fish! More seriously, I agree this project will need to focus on the language aspect more in the future in order to accomplish what it initially set out to do. Maybe a function at the bottom of the page which acts as a poll (such as the review function on other wikis), but have the following: On a scale of 1-10, how simple to read did you find the article? 1-2-3-4... (select one to rate) or maybe How easy to understand was this article: Very simple - simple - quite difficult - difficult - very difficult? (select one to rate). And then have a message saying To tell us more about what you think, click here (link redirects to new section on Talk page). Just an idea, but it may help us determine which articles need attention.

It's a good idea. A more accessible feedback system for readers would definitely be a plus. I've always wondered, though, whether many editors (on enwiki) really look much at those feedback logs... but it might be different if we're looking for one particular problem. If it produced a list that prioritises the articles with the lowest scores (i.e., most consistently rated complex by readers), then it could be a whole new way of finding articles with heavy traffic that are difficult to understand. Osiris (talk) 05:22, 10 October 2012 (UTC)
Yes, an automatically generated list would be a very good idea. I think we need something to help us detect what readers would like, and this could be an easy option. Someone will no doubt shoot it down, but then they should come up with an alternative solution. I'll be away for a few days, but when I'm back, I'll suggest the idea to ST (unless you wish to do it before Saturday - I'll be back on Sunday). Yottie =talk= 08:20, 10 October 2012 (UTC)

Culture of bullying[change | change source]

I have responded to your comments here. If you do not understand, I am ready and willing to try to explain on-wiki in different words. --Ansei (talk) 14:06, 24 January 2013 (UTC)

Excellent work in trying to clear out the articles with unsourced statements category! Welcome back, too! I hope you're planning to stay around for awhile! Only (talk) 13:14, 8 December 2013 (UTC)
Thank you. I'm glad to be able to help. I should be around for the next couple of weeks, before going to Australia. That means I probably won't be editing as much between 20th December and 10th January. Hopefully, I'll resume normal service after that. :) Yottie =talk= 13:20, 8 December 2013 (UTC)

Re: For Funs Sake[change | change source]

I'm doing my bit :P Kennedy (talk) 10:27, 10 December 2013 (UTC)

The fact that that was 693 worth of an edit is obnoxious! :) Only (talk) 10:32, 10 December 2013 (UTC)
Haha, very good! More like the old times, where it was ok to have fun as well as edit. Now, we live in some sort of 1984 remake. But worse. ;) Yottie =talk= 17:48, 10 December 2013 (UTC)

RfD nomination of User:Project/France[change | change source]

An editor has requested deletion of User:Project/France, 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/User:Project/France 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. Auntof6 (talk) 07:44, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

Your admin rights have been removed[change | change source]

Hey Yottie! I regret to inform you that I have removed your admin rights on this wiki in accordance to our policy on inactive admins. You have made in 2014 sadly less than 100 logged actions/edits to this project.

However, I wish you a happy new and successful year 2015! Hope to see you back on this wiki in the future! -Barras talk 00:53, 1 January 2015 (UTC)

Thank you Barras. Sadly, I have had (a still have) little to no time for editing. Hopefully I can make some smaller contributions throughout the year, but there is no real need for the admin tools. All best, Yottie =talk= 12:41, 4 January 2015 (UTC)

Welcome back![change | change source]

Welcome back, Yottie! Where have you been? (if you don't mind me asking) Glad you're back :-) George Edward CTalkContributions 13:13, 4 January 2015 (UTC)

I have been between countries - Italy, England and France - and I have not really had time to edit. I will try to do a little more this year. I'm planning on expanding all French communes. Thanks for the message. Yottie =talk= 13:24, 4 January 2015 (UTC)
