DeletionsEdit

Hi Faroukh. Let me explain what just happened. This project is written in simple English, so articles copied from the English Wikipedia aren't any good here. Therefore, I've had to delete most of the pages you've created because they weren't in simple English and they'd just been copied and pasted without any simplification. If you have any questions about writing in simple English, I can help you. Or have a read over Wikipedia:How to write Simple English pages. You can use content from another Wikipedia (even the Hebrew version), but it has to be translated. This page might help you on how to do this. A good way of getting practise is to start off articles in your sandbox/userspace. Let me know if you need any help. Best regards, and sorry for the annoyance, Osiris (talk) 22:25, 7 August 2012 (UTC)

RfD nomination of Specialized cityEdit

Automatic TranslationsEdit

Please stop adding machine-translated material. It is always full of mistakes. Beastiepaws (talk) 23:07, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

i didn't copy nothing. פארוק (talk) 23:21, 12 March 2013 (UTC)
I didn't say that you copied anything. I asked you to stop inserting machine-translated material, which you are doing in many different languages. Now, please stop. Other people have to correct every line that you write. אל תערוך בויקיפדיות שהן לא העברית אם אתה לא דובר את השפה ברמה מתקדמת לפחות. Beastiepaws (talk) 02:03, 13 March 2013 (UTC)

QD Yard NeighborhoodsEdit

I marked Yard Neighborhoods for quick deletion as not notable. There are no references, web search mainly turns up your other article on En Wikipedia. Building homes around a central courtyard is a common technique in many places. Gotanda (talk) 01:23, 31 March 2013 (UTC)

TalkbackEdit

Hello, פארוק. You have new messages at Auntof6's talk page.
Message added 11:24, 11 April 2013 (UTC). You can remove this notice at any time by removing the {{Talkback}} or {{Tb}} template.

Auntof6 (talk) 11:24, 11 April 2013 (UTC)

Category:Arlington National CemeteryEdit

Thanks for creating this category. You might not have known, but here on Simple English Wikipedia we want at least three entries in each new category. You put only one entry in it. I have added one more, but another one should be added. Do you have another entry in mind? --Auntof6 (talk) 06:37, 28 April 2013 (UTC)

Interwiki linksEdit

I noticed that you have added interwiki links to some articles recently. Interwiki links are now supposed to be kept at Wikidata, not in the individual Wikipedia articles. Please maintain the interwiki links there. If you don't know how to do that, let me know and I will find the instructions for you. Thanks! --Auntof6 (talk) 12:00, 14 May 2013 (UTC)

Thank you. can you help me with that please ?, couse i don't know to use the new system. i want to writte more about the article about: "Arlington National Cemetery". פארוק (talk) 13:34, 14 May 2013 (UTC)
OK, I can't find a link to instructions right now, so I'll describe it myself. I'm assuming there is already an article in another Wikipedia, such as English Wikipedia.
  1. Go to the corresponding article at another Wikipedia.
  2. Find the list of interwiki links on the left side of the page. At the bottom of that list is a link to the Wikidata page for the article's links. On English Wikipedia, the link says "Edit links". Here on Simple English Wikipedia, it says "Change links". In other languages, it would be something similar in the other language.
  3. Click on that link. That takes you to the Wikidata page.
  4. Go to the bottom of that page. You will see a list of all the articles Wikidata knows about for the topic. The last line there just has a link that says "Add", with no language.
  5. Click on the "Add" link. That gives you a new line to add the link for a new article. The line has two edit boxes and links that say "save" and "cancel".
  6. In the first edit box, type "simple".
  7. In the second edit box, type the name of the article from Simple English Wikipedia.
  8. Click on "save". Your change should be saved. If there's a problem and you can't figure it out, let me know and I'll take a look at it.
I hope that makes sense. Let me know if you have any questions.
By the way, please reply here so that this conversation is all in one place. I will watch this page, so I'll see if you reply. --Auntof6 (talk) 22:08, 14 May 2013 (UTC)

┌─────────────────────────────────┘
I see you are still putting interwiki links in the new articles you create. These links should go in Wikidata, as described above. Do you still have questions about that? --Auntof6 (talk) 20:58, 17 July 2013 (UTC)

Monuments and memorials in Mount HerzlEdit

Just a note: when you put a page in this category, you don't need to put it in the category for buildings and structures in Jerusalem. That's because the Mount Herzl category is already in the Jerusalem category. Let me know if you have any questions about this. :) --Auntof6 (talk) 22:21, 18 May 2013 (UTC)

Geographic coordinates in your new city articlesEdit

Something is wrong with the coding of the coordinates in the infobox on Tiberias. The same problem was on Safed, but I removed the coordinates parameters. I can't tell what's wrong. Can you see anything different with these from what's on other articles? --Auntof6 (talk) 23:48, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

You must give attribution when copying articles from other WikipediasEdit

Bustan (garden) is so similar to the article on English Wikipedia that either the article here was copied from enwiki or they were both copied from the same place. In either case, you must give attribution. Please add attribution to the article's talk page as soon as possible. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 05:31, 17 July 2013 (UTC)

You really do need to start giving attribution. Even if you just take a little bit from another wiki, you have to give credit. Recent examples are Bandai-Azuma Roadway and Mid-Sea Road. These are very short (that is another problem) but the information in the first one is exactly the same as EnWP. The images and titles for both are the same as EnWP. Please start giving attribution, or stop copying from other wikis. Attribution is one of the basics of Wikipedia. Thanks, Gotanda (talk) 21:42, 6 August 2013 (UTC)
Update: And Colon Cemetery (not sure why you changed it from Colon Cemetery, Havana), China National Highways, Theodor Herzl, Urban Expressways (Japan). I'm sure there are more. Slow down, and do it correctly, please. Gotanda (talk) 21:50, 6 August 2013 (UTC)

QD International Center for Tzfat KabbalahEdit

I marked International Center for Tzfat Kabbalah for quick deletion as not notable. I found no mention in news sources. Just letting you know. Thanks. Gotanda (talk) 21:14, 24 July 2013 (UTC)

This shouldn't have been created, Faroukh. You're the author of every version of the article on other-language Wikipedias, but it's been deleted from several versions - eswiki and itwiki for not being notable, and even from your home wiki where you asked to move it into your userspace. If you can't show notability in your native language, then I don't see how you're going to be able to do it here. If you're going to try, please use your userspace instead until it's ready. Osiris (talk) 00:12, 25 July 2013 (UTC)

Creating categoriesEdit

Your two new categories Category:Roads in China and Category:Roads in India each have only one entry. You might not have known, but we want at least three entries in each new category. That is documented at Wikipedia:Categories#Is there a need for the new category? Do you plan to add at least two more entries for each of these categories? If so, please do so sooner rather than later. If not, please let me know so the categories can be deleted. Thank you. --Auntof6 (talk) 02:10, 4 August 2013 (UTC)

I found two more entries to add to the India category, so that one is OK. I found one more for the China category, but it should still have another one. --Auntof6 (talk) 02:33, 4 August 2013 (UTC)

And now you have created Category:Roads in Japan with only one entry. Please stop creating categories with only one or two entries. Are you seeing these notes I have been leaving you? --Auntof6 (talk) 03:41, 6 August 2013 (UTC)

Road articlesEdit

Some of your recent articles about roads do not say why the roads are notable. Please go back and add something about what makes them notable, preferably with a reference. Articles that do not show notability might be deleted. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 23:59, 6 August 2013 (UTC)

Once more--you must give attribution when copying from another wikipediaEdit

You have already been told about this, but you have not changed your behavior. You can use data, images, and sentences from another wikipedia if you simplify them. However, you must write on the talk page or the edit summary where you took the information from. Each of these articles you created is just a short version of the English Wikipedia article. Please read and follow Wikipedia:How_to_copy_from_another_Wikipedia.

Is there some reason why you do not want to give credit to the work of other editors on English Wikipedia? Please fix these. Thanks, Gotanda (talk) 04:21, 8 August 2013 (UTC)

You asked me to explain. I already have, but I will again. You can't just copy from another wikipedia. You have to tell where you copied from. Did you read the guideline at Wikipedia:How_to_copy_from_another_Wikipedia? It is very easy to do. Examples are at Wikipedia:Transwiki_attribution. Just use the code patterns there. Gotanda (talk) 10:07, 8 August 2013 (UTC)

Quick deletion of International Planning History SocietyEdit

The page you wrote, International Planning History Society, has been selected for quick deletion. If you think this page should be kept, please add {{wait}} below the line {{QD}} and say why on the talk page. If the page is already gone, but you think this was an error, you can ask for it to be undeleted. You can find more information about the reason here. Auntof6 (talk) 21:28, 11 August 2013 (UTC)

Mary MagdaleneEdit

Can you please explain why you added Category:Mount of Olives to this article? Nothing in the article mentions it. I have removed the category. Please don't add it back unless you put something in the article to explain why. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 04:54, 13 August 2013 (UTC)

Why not ? . פארוק (talk) 12:09, 13 August 2013 (UTC)
Why not what? I asked you to explain why Mary Magdalene belonged in the category. Please reply here so that this discussion is all in one place. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 15:48, 13 August 2013 (UTC)
Sorry, my mistake !. i mean to this =>>> "en:Church of Mary Magdalene". i will fixed that. פארוק (talk) 16:50, 13 August 2013 (UTC)

Quick deletion of National Library of SingaporeEdit

The page you wrote, National Library of Singapore, has been selected for quick deletion. If you think this page should be kept, please add {{wait}} below the line {{QD}} and say why on the talk page. If the page is already gone, but you think this was an error, you can ask for it to be undeleted. You can find more information about the reason here. Auntof6 (talk) 09:26, 13 November 2013 (UTC)

National librariesEdit

Your recent articles about national libraries have almost no information in them. Can you add something to them so that they tell us more than the fact that they exist? Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 09:29, 13 November 2013 (UTC)

HebrewEdit

Hello, פארוק. You have new messages at Thrasymedes's talk page.
You can remove this notice at any time by removing the {{Talkback}} or {{Tb}} template.

RfD nomination of Prague InstituteEdit

 

An editor has requested deletion of Prague Institute, 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/Prague Institute 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. Osiris (talk) 23:28, 19 January 2014 (UTC)

Mount Zion categoryEdit

This category that you created had only one entry in it. As I mentioned above, categories here should have at least three entries in them. That is explained at Wikipedia:Categories#Is there a need for the new category?. I couldn't find more entries to put into the category, so I deleted it. Feel free to create it again when there are at least three entries. --Auntof6 (talk) 03:30, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

Adding interwiki linksEdit

You might not have known, but interwiki links like you added to Category:National institutions are now kept in Wikidata. They do not go in article or category pages any more. When you want to add these, please add them in Wikidata. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 21:21, 16 December 2014 (UTC)

July 2015Edit

  Hello, פארוק! Here at Simple English Wikipedia we use the section heading "Other websites" instead of English Wikipedia's "External links", which you used in "Sderot Herzl". This makes it simpler and easier to read. Please remember to use "Other websites" in articles that you create in the future. Thank you for your help! --Auntof6 (talk) 03:07, 31 July 2015 (UTC)

Block evasion on English WikipediaEdit

Please stop trying to evade your block on English Wikipedia. Do not create any more sock puppet accounts. PepperBeast (talk) 20:06, 10 October 2015 (UTC)

Sources and languageEdit

Farouk,

I really want to try to help you keep your contributions here, and also at Judeo-Spanish (Ladino) Wikipedia, where I am an administrator. But I have a couple of problems doing that:

  1. You never include sources that say why these places are notable. We always want sources, even when it is obvious why the places are notable. (Also, remember that even when I personally understand the notability of some of your Israeli places, the general reader of this wiki may not. And you have to aim at the general reader, not me.)
  2. You have language issues. Here, I can and do clean them up some. On Judeo-Spanish Wikipedia, you are writing mostly in modern Spanish and not in Judeo-Spanish, and I can't write JS well enough to fix your articles. So other administrators delete them.

Quick deletion of International Solid Waste AssociationEdit

The page you wrote, International Solid Waste Association, has been selected for quick deletion. If you think this page should be kept, please add {{wait}} below the line {{QD}} and say why on the talk page. If the page is already gone, but you think this was an error, you can ask for it to be undeleted. You can find more information about the reason here. Rus793 (talk) 20:16, 26 September 2016 (UTC)

September 2016Edit

  We like and strongly encourage helpful changes to Wikipedia, but "International Solid Waste Association" was directly copied and pasted from the main English Wikipedia. Please do not do that. Such articles are usually too complex. They need to be simplified before or immediately after being added to the Simple English Wikipedia. In addition, be sure to include attribution on the article's talk page. Thank you. Rus793 (talk) 20:18, 26 September 2016 (UTC)

March 2018Edit

  Welcome to Wikipedia. You might not have done it on purpose, but your recent change removed helpful information from Wikipedia. We ask that you do not remove things from pages, as you did to "Levant Fair", without giving a good reason in the change summary. If it was a mistake, do not worry. The part of the article you removed has been put back. If you want to try things out, please use the sandbox. If you would like to learn how to help Wikipedia, please see the welcome page. Thank you. DJ ( - ) 13:17, 4 March 2018 (UTC)

Recent templateEdit

Hello (привет, а ты говоришь по русский?), I saw your recent template that you created, but the whole thing has red links. Are you going to create those articles? If not there is no point in the template. IWI (chat) 23:41, 24 May 2020 (UTC)

ok. פארוק (talk) 23:45, 24 May 2020 (UTC)
Haha, you didn't answer. IWI (chat) 23:46, 24 May 2020 (UTC)
I don't understand why is this a problem. פארוק (talk) 23:51, 24 May 2020 (UTC)
Because a template with links only to articles that do not exist are pointless. I'm assuming you don't speak Russian. IWI (chat) 23:52, 24 May 2020 (UTC)
so ?. now it can be in red and after than it will be blue. פארוק (talk) 20:38, 25 May 2020 (UTC)
Yes that was the question. Will you make the red links blue? The answer is yes, so it is good. IWI (chat) 20:58, 25 May 2020 (UTC)
