Transwiki import request: Lua-Module:Ns has subpages[change source]

Please import Module:Ns has subpages (used in Template:Ns has subpages) from en.wp. -- Reise Reise (talk) 11:07, 19 September 2015 (UTC)

 Done -Barras talk 13:30, 19 September 2015 (UTC)

Titleblacklist change request[change source]

I can't post at MediaWiki_talk:Titleblacklist (perhaps because I've only got a few edits over here?), but it suggests posting here instead, so here I am. Just a heads up that the the self-promoting Paul Easter sockpuppeteer over at the English Wikipedia has returned his attention to the Simple English Wikipedia recently (after having an article deleted here in the past). You may want to add .*Paul[\. ]?[A-Za-z\.\(\)\"\' ]{0,20}[\. ]Easter.* to the title blacklist. --McGeddon (talk) 17:39, 22 September 2015 (UTC)

Added. It appears this vandal was here socking a few months ago too. Thanks for the heads up. -Mh7kJ (talk) 22:11, 22 September 2015 (UTC)

CAT:TWU[change source]

I was clearing CAT:TWU earlier and I was wondering what its purpose is. It's not a big deal to maintain, but after seeing that it was discontinued on the English Wikipedia, I wanted to ask for opinions on potentially getting rid of it here too as unnecessary extra maintenance. Any thoughts? -Mh7kJ (talk) 22:56, 22 September 2015 (UTC)

I don't think it has been our policy to delete these pages. Even if we keep this page, we don't necessarily have to do anything with it. I'd stop cleaning it if you haven't already. I might even put them back, depending on what was on them. --Auntof6 (talk) 00:58, 23 September 2015 (UTC)

Bad Usernames[change source]

reporting Ahole and scumbag. --Fdena (talk) 23:16, 22 September 2015 (UTC)

We don't have users with those names. Where did you see them? --Auntof6 (talk) 01:01, 23 September 2015 (UTC)

Looking for a close at ...[change source]

Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/2015/Template:California's Great America. Thanks. StevenJ81 (talk) 16:33, 30 September 2015 (UTC)

Is there a particular reason this one is urgent? It's not the end of the world if RFDs don't get closed right away. (I'd close it, but I can't because I initiated it.) --Auntof6 (talk) 23:46, 30 September 2015 (UTC)
I just like to keep them from piling up. It's not especially urgent. As a general rule, would you prefer me to wait to post something like this until a week after the "scheduled" close date? StevenJ81 (talk) 17:48, 1 October 2015 (UTC)
Really I just wouldn't post them unless its a complex close that really needs special attention. -DJSasso (talk) 18:23, 1 October 2015 (UTC)
I kind of agree with DJsasso. When I see a post like that (or when I see a non-admin closure, for that matter), I feel it's a complaint that the admins aren't doing their job. Sometimes we aren't keeping up with things, but we have lives ouside of Wikipedia, too. It usually hurts nothing if an RfD isn't closed right away. --Auntof6 (talk) 00:46, 2 October 2015 (UTC)

redirect[change source]

Someone help me on that redirect I created, 0-16. I want it redirected to the 2008 Detroit Lions season page. -- (talk) 23:24, 1 October 2015 (UTC)

 Done by myself. Never mind. -- (talk) 23:34, 1 October 2015 (UTC)

User:NBA Office[change source]

User:NBA Office has been blocked indefinitely on English Wikipedia because of username choice. Does Simple Wikipedia have a policy on bad usernames? //nepaxt 20:18, 8 October 2015 (UTC)

Extension:SandboxLink[change source]

I wonder if we can install mw:Extension:SandboxLink. I used to have a gadget for this, which I found really helpful. Gadget is no longer functional, but this extension was written in its place. Thanks. StevenJ81 (talk) 14:13, 9 October 2015 (UTC)
