Hello, can I know when will you be available to hop onto IRC for discussion of WAM judging. Hope you are well also. :) Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 16:08, 2 November 2020 (UTC)Reply

Camouflaged Mirage I'll ping you there right now --(Redacted)
Can you just paste what you discussed here on my talkpage? (Redacted)
Sorry if the above is quite unclear, I am asking the time-slots you are available on IRC, then we can settle on a time / date and we can all discuss WAM on IRC. No rush I am looking at somewhere this weekend. Thanks much. :) Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 10:56, 3 November 2020 (UTC)Reply
Camouflaged Mirage I'm usually able to go on IRC this Saturday or Thursday at around 6 P.M. PST (Redacted)
Noted, but this may be hard for me, one way is that for us to judge the articles separately and then for those that one of us agree, another of us disagree we openly discuss here (or if you want some privacy we do it via email). A guide in judging is to go to the fountain page linked in WP:WAM, log in, and you will see Judge. Click on it and then the articles will appear. Basic word count and bytes will be shown on the top right (need to ensure the article is 3000 bytes + 300 words both met). And then subsequently, at the bottom, there is an accept, reject button, for okay article (see the main page of WAM for the rules), click accept and done, for not ok article, give a reason why it's not ok, and then reject. Do it when you have time, no rush. For unsure ones, we can discuss here or via email then. Sorry for unable to find a common time on IRC, as 6PM PST is quite early for me here to go online.

Camouflaged Mirage It's better to do the judging in public, so users can see that we're being honest and not biased, etc. I can create a user talk subpage for all WAM related matters too --(Redacted)

Sure :). I will say let not create a subpage, just use the talkpage of the article is sufficient I guess, the author can also communicate via the talkpage? But I won't oppose a subpage. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 08:27, 5 November 2020 (UTC)Reply
Camouflaged Mirage Sounds Good! So does judging start next month? --(Redacted)
Actually now we can start judging already, as there are 8 articles being submitted. If we judge early, the author can rectify any errors and then they can be accepted later. I had judged 2 already, feel free to start judging now. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 16:20, 5 November 2020 (UTC)Reply
Camouflaged Mirage I don't see the fountain tool link at WP:WAM, is it on meta? (I'm rarely active this time of day on Wikipedia that's why I'm responding so fast lol) (Redacted)
I see, here. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 16:24, 5 November 2020 (UTC)Reply

Login will be the same username and password? Or is it O-Auth? --(Redacted)

Login + O-Auth. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 16:28, 5 November 2020 (UTC)Reply
However, there is no rush to judge either, we have plenty of time, and the author have plenty too even if we start like 2 weeks later judging. Just not to stress up anyone :) Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 16:32, 5 November 2020 (UTC)Reply
Camouflaged Mirage I'll start the judging in about 2 weeks from then --(Redacted)
Hello, just a note, if you see anything wrong with the articles, don't ammend yourself, but rather tell the author whatsoever is wrong and they need to make the correction. I know this is very anti-wiki way of working, but the system we have apparently only recognize the author contribution for length (3000 bytes + 300 words - both need to be met), so if we touch it or expand it it cannot be counted. ANd all the best for your RFA, and thanks for your in depth replies. I don't want to make the RFA even longer so it's here. Regards, Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 14:14, 9 November 2020 (UTC)Reply
Camouflaged Mirage Got it! Then I think we should try to let Gay Yong Hernandez not to make the changes to new articles, but the problem is he doesn't respond to messages... --(Redacted)
Fountain is up and running again. Just for information the link is on WP:WAM and see the big blue submit changes. Thanks. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 10:37, 11 November 2020 (UTC)Reply

Unfortunately, your RfA wasn't successful...

Hello (Redacted),

I just closed your (Redacted). Unfortunately, there was not enough support in the community to reach the required 75% support (as per the Criteria for Adminship). I therefore had no choice but to close this request as unsuccessful. Please don't take it personally; focus on creating or improving content, and perhaps try again, sometime later? --Eptalon (talk) 16:53, 15 November 2020 (UTC)Reply

Eptalon   Thanks for the note. --(Redacted)

WAM again

Hey, I had settled all the renaming of the pages here and on meta, for my article since the name in the fountain I had to manually remove and readd, the system needs you to accept my article again. Regards,Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 13:29, 22 November 2020 (UTC)Reply

  Done --つがる Let's Talk! :) 🍁 21:40, 22 November 2020 (UTC)Reply
Thanks for the polishing up for my articles. For judging, apart from my pages there is only Saroj left. I recalled BRPeverconcerns of redlinks, so I will wait till they respond before accepting but I will still say what I said on the Airport talkpage, that Asian articles are rare here and redlinks are inevitable, we can ask people to create pages for those but it really doesn't seem good to just have oneliner stubs. I will wait for consensus to accept / decline those, my thought process, so maybe you will have more views, feel free to share. For this, Tandoori chicken, not sure is the language simple enough as origin section seems complex, but then also there are also 2 barelinks. 19/20. All these we can fix if we deem the entire article is OK, so I will need more inputs. Just in case I am not here, these shouldn't be reason to fail the article should you think is Ok. Thanks so much and appreciate the work you done. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 14:00, 23 November 2020 (UTC)Reply
Hey ya, just a note we need to settle all the judging by the end of this month, so I think it's time to discuss the articles, I am happy to do it at whatsoever pages you think is best. Also @BRPever: for it. There are languages which settled all the judging already. We are sort of running out of time. I think the main issues is that I am not familiar with Indian actress, their notablity and etc as well as the language, so I need BRPever inputs on Saroj, for the chicken page, my concerns are as above. But I am also in an unique situation which I shouldn't have in the first place by writing articles. I cannot reject any pages by Saroj as that can make me seems that I am having a COI (as I am also participating) and he had 7 submitted, me 6. I hate this situation but I am also in a blind not to accept all in a blanket manner and BRP had raised the redlinks issues so I cannot accept against this background. So what I hope is all 3 of us get into consensus of whether to accept / reject Saroj articles (but then I think I will rescue as I have a COI involved - pardon me from getting into the writing which causes this COI). Sorry for this long wall of text, but I can't make it any shorter. Best Regards :) Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 11:23, 1 December 2020 (UTC)Reply
I will get to judging when I'm free (very busy right now), and you raise a good point about the 'COI' can a 3rd party WAM judge from another project come and help us judge? Also good question about the redlinks, I'm not sure what to do in that situation either. --つがる Let's Talk! :) 🍁 02:43, 3 December 2020 (UTC)Reply
Take care IRL. We cannot add judges now already, the only thing we can do is to ensure fairness, so me having contested (I regret) shouldn't judge any further but I will be always available to give opinions and thoughts on the articles. The COI in this case only applies to me, so one good point, for simple with so small pool of editors, the organizers shouldn't be writing articles. This I will take note next year (hopefully I will still be around there). But anyway, the dateline is 31 Dec, we still have time, but if we exceed, it will be nullfied. Worse up to worse, I will ignore the COI and go to judge all the articles, my aim is just to let there to be at least 1 user who meet the criterion (no need to be me) to win the postcard. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 09:12, 3 December 2020 (UTC)Reply
When you judge, pretend you don't know the user, forget all that you know about them. Just look at the article and not who wrote it, but the content in the article. Would this help? --つがる Let's Talk! :) 🍁 03:15, 4 December 2020 (UTC)Reply
Of course I don't judge based on the user, but then there is the so called perceived COI, not true COI but if I fail one of his, it might not be that good, this is what I worry about. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 09:14, 4 December 2020 (UTC)Reply
Just a friendly reminder, we had 20 more days to judge, cc @BRPever:. Some other projects with 100 plus articles had done already, in fact most, so we really had to get down to real judging, we only have 9. Based on last year experience, late judging submissions isn't that welcomed and we gotten close to a rejections, I had to beg the international organizers for simple to be included when the original judge went missing since day 1 of the competition, after much pursuasion, they then allow, I hope such don't repeat and having the COI above, I really need both of your help to finish the judging in a fair manner,both in act and perceived.

Okay, I will spend the weekend Judging --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 02:45, 11 December 2020 (UTC)Reply

Okay, I'm just gonna accept red links is that fine? --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 02:46, 11 December 2020 (UTC)Reply

I can't really say much as I know mine also have redlinks but if I may being a little biased I will say let's just ignore for this round, I know BRP is also concerned about that but I mean we lack Asian pages, if not then we unlink for the time being? Although we don't typically. Well I think for the sake of WAM I am keen to ignore, it's not GA just a patrolled article, seeing other versions their articles aren't totally tag free either, I can tag some zh or bn ones too, but they accepted, so I suggest we follow? CM-Public (talk) 02:51, 11 December 2020 (UTC)Reply
Ok, We'll Ignore the red links. I will start judging on the Weekend. --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 03:01, 11 December 2020 (UTC)Reply
Agreed, let's ignore the redlinks for now. Just ping me here if there are hard ones to solve. Thanks much. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 13:19, 11 December 2020 (UTC)Reply
Just checking in any issues with judging, we left 3 days to finish. I will need the scores to be up by 31 Dec preferably by 0000 UTC latest by 1200 UTC. The reason is that after all the scores are tallied, I will then do the finishing touches by sending pass/fail message via the fountain tool to participants (the message can be seen via last year page, I intend to reuse - any objections? Wikipedia_talk:Wikipedia_Asian_Month/2019#Sample congrats message <-- here (asking for objections as last year the language was questioned and we fixed)), update the meta pages (we have 3-4 pages on meta to update the scores). We need to finish by 31 Dec all. Just a ping to @BRPever: to take note too. Thanks much.
P.S. Sorry I might not be that active these few days, but I'll try to respond to as many queries as possible here (due to some personal issues), apologies. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 18:25, 28 December 2020 (UTC)Reply
Reminder: My articles need to be judged by one other organizer, so is either you or @BRPever:. Manda, Jammu is the one that I cannot judge whatsoever and if there is 1 article pending, we cannot process the entire WAM. I.e. the system won't close, we cannot award the others. The WAM international team wants us to collect winners info by 1/11 Jan (1st round / final round), so we have to get to it ASAP. If you aren't able to do so, please tell me ASAP so that I can ask for another active user help (i.e. add them to the judges list and help assess). This is of critical importance already (which I stressed before in the original post asking for judges). Thanks so much and have a nice day.

Category:User yue

I noticed that you manually added this category to your user page. I looked at Template:User yue-3 and saw that it wasn't adding the category automatically like other user language templates, so I changed it. You should be able to remove the hardcoded category from your user page now if you want to. --Auntof6 (talk) 08:45, 25 November 2020 (UTC)Reply

Auntof6 Thank you. Also, for the babel templates, I don't want it to look like I'm 'hat collecting' or anything, I'm not. I just like languages and I happen to speak those languages. Will putting too many babel templates cause a problem? --つがる Let's Talk! :) 🍁 00:37, 26 November 2020 (UTC)Reply
The only problem I think it might cause is that you might get people asking for help with a lot of language-related stuff! This wouldn't be considered hat collecting; that refers to getting privileges and rights, not to letting people know what your skills are. I don't know if there is a limit on how many languages the software lets you specify. And I like languages, too. :) --Auntof6 (talk) 02:29, 26 November 2020 (UTC)Reply

Dont try to edit or delete this article Chobber Sidhu — Preceding unsigned comment added by Onehits (talkcontribs)

  • Hello, Onehits! Firstly I'd like to extend you a warm welcome to the Simple English Wikipedia! As you may know, Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, this means that all our articles written here, must meet the General Notability Guidelines, or in this case, it should meet the Guidelines at WP SINGER. I know this is either dissapointing, or frustrating for you, but at the end of the day this is Wikipedia, and articles must be about subjects that are notable. I also want to let you know that you should not tell others not to edit or touch any articles on Wikipedia, because nobody owns them, and also to not remove the RFD tags, as that is Vandalism. Please also do not put the "Semi-Protection" Icon on the page, you aren't an Administrator so it does nothing. I invite you to stay with us and get a hang of how things work here, and one day, you'll be able to create an article and not get it deleted. On behalf of the SEWP (Simple English Wikipedia Community) and I, I wish you the very best in your time here. Happy Editing, and if you have anymore questions, please ask me! --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 02:20, 24 January 2021 (UTC)Reply

Is it allowed to go to English Wikipedia, find an article that is not on Simple Wikipedia, copy and paste the Wikipedia one into a new Simple article? Helpthepeople9 (talk) 02:48, 9 February 2021 (UTC)Reply

Yes, you can do that. However, you need to make sure that the content has been 'translated' into Simple-English, and you need to follow the guidelines here. More information is available here. --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 01:42, 11 February 2021 (UTC)Reply

  Hello, つがる. When you revert a user's changes, like you did earlier, don't forget to leave the user a message on their talk page, especially when reverting vandalism or a test edit. You may find Template:User talk page warnings/table useful when doing this, to let them know that the change was considered inappropriate, and to direct them to the sandbox. Thank you.

There are over 100,000 articles on Simple English Wikipedia, but this project's goal is to work on 100 of the most important articles. We will choose one or two articles to improve at a time. We will try to make the articles more complete or promote them to good article status. Hope to see you there! Naddruf (talk) 18:45, 3 March 2021 (UTC)Reply

Hello, Netto-uyoku seems to be a political movement in Japan, of the (far?) right spectrum. There's an article on EnWP, and we do have the lede of that article. When I edited it yesterday, I tried to do some simplifications (shorter sentences, mostly). I am however still unclear as to the true nature of the movement - are we looking at a group similar to Anonymous (group), or more like en:Les Identitaires? - As you seem to be interested in Japan-related articles, you are probably in a better position to assess the nature of the group. Can you spend some time, and fix the article accordingly? - If you don't think they are notable, please nominate for deletion. Thank you. --Eptalon (talk) 08:07, 8 March 2021 (UTC)Reply

It is always worth looking up the record of a doubtful biog before putting it to RfD. This biog has been QD's seven times by two different admins. It is obviously an advert by an interested party (person himself, relative or PR agent). It makes no attempt at justification, and will eventually be deleted. Unfortunately by then the person will have got the name copied onto all data bases and achieved a large part of what they intended. RfD is for cases where there is some grounds for doubt. On RfD a name will stay up for one or two months before deletion even when it is quite obvious what the result will be. I want to be clear: it is absolutely proper to put up any page to RfD. However, it is not always sensible. What I do is check the history first, and often I check the history on En wiki as well. Macdonald-ross (talk) 08:19, 21 March 2021 (UTC)Reply

Hi Tsugaru. I noticed the question you put on Chenzw's talk page. I don't know the exact answer to it but I know that you can do some testing around with this <div style="overflow:scroll; width:15%; height:100px"> which could be the solution to your problem.

I am also busy, so I may take a while, if I take too long, you can also ask at Simple Talk then! --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 21:45, 5 July 2021 (UTC)Reply
Ok :) MeritedElm63160 (talk) 21:59, 5 July 2021 (UTC)Reply

Are you a fan of Tsugaru, a character in Japanese mythology? I mean the one who's associated with the legend of Amaterasu! Haoreima (talk) 04:48, 1 August 2021 (UTC)Reply

@Haoreima:, Hey, and thanks for the question! I've actually never knew Tsugaru was a character in Japanese mythology! If you look on my userpage, you will see I like Hakodate a lot, it is next to the Tsugaru Strait, I choose to name my account after the Tsugaru strait/Tsugaru City Area in Japan, and the surrounding area of Hakodate, Japan. Thanks for the question! Of course, if you want to talk more in depth about this, or want to go into more detail into this conversation, we can discuss more via email! Thanks for stopping by! Also, did you know the Seikan Tunnel actually crosses the Tsugaru Strait? --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 19:42, 1 August 2021 (UTC)Reply

Sure! But, I am bit unsure of what you are asking... lol --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 00:03, 13 September 2021 (UTC)Reply
I have something to tell you. I found who is Sugaru (not Tsugaru) but in Japanese, I think they are almost same:). Well, it's a Japanese god catcher who served for the Japanese emperor. He once caught Raijin, the thunder god. But I am really shocked to find that there's no article in both en and simple wikis about him. Lol:) Haoreima (talk) 06:41, 13 September 2021 (UTC)Reply
Some good references I found about him are 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. If I got free time, I will create an article about him. Haoreima (talk) 06:44, 13 September 2021 (UTC)Reply
Hmm, that is interesting indeed. I will see if Japanese Wikipedia have an article on it. Let's see if we can make it an article here too! ;) I never knew "Sugaru" was a name, lol. This is kind of random, but do you like Sushi or Tempura (I am so used to spelling Tempura like Tenpura, because in Japanese, it is said as TEN-PU-RA and not TEM-PO-RA. Can you guess how we say Karaoke in Japanese? ;) --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 22:14, 13 September 2021 (UTC)Reply

Welcome to patrolling

Congratulations on getting the patroller right. I'd like to ask you to be sure to check categories on articles. I've been seeing articles that have some categories, but no content categories. That can happen when an article has a template that adds a maintenance category (such as a stub template or a template that says the article needs simplifying). When you patrol, if you could make sure the article has appropriate content categories, that would be much appreciated! --Auntof6 (talk) 01:16, 27 April 2020 (UTC)Reply

Auntof6, thanks for letting me know! Will remember this from now on! I will pin this to the top of my talk page so I do not forget. Thank you --(Redacted)



@つがる and Camouflaged Mirage: Hello! If one is to participate in the Wiki Asia Month, does he/she have to write on topics other than his/her own country? For example, I am from India, so shall I have to write topics other than India? Haoreima (talk) 13:44, 22 November 2021 (UTC)Reply

Haoreima Great question! There is no rule saying what country you can't write articles on, as long as the country is in Asia. Regards --Tsugaru let's talk! :) 20:46, 22 November 2021 (UTC)Reply
@Haoreima Yes, per my colleague had said, there isn't prohibition in this wiki about this, I know some other do. However, the theme of WAM is to discover the culture of other Asian countries, so maybe might consider writing some other nations articles. This is just a suggestion and not a must.

Elytrian Hello! Thanks for stopping by, when we did that we didn't have an intention for it being obnoxious, If you are asking me specifically why I did that, it was because that was years ago, I was younger and I wasn't as mature as I am today. Also, I didn't intend it to be obnoxious. To me it just read as "none". If you like I can remove it. Thanks for the question! ;) --Tsugaru let's talk! :) 04:31, 20 December 2021 (UTC)Reply

Happy Holidays and have a blessed Christmas. Sorry to mention about so called "work" but for WAM I think we are almost at the end of the judging, I will give the 2 unaccepted article person a final talkback I guess. Next step will be awarding the 2 users with 4 accepted articles, so that can be done via the interface, I intend to use last year messages. If this is okay, I will then do a final check on the articles by end Dec and awarding and updating meta pages can be by then. Hope this arrangement is okay. Enjoy a blessed weekend.

Technically they can run non-stop but it would depend on what it's approved tasks are.

Archive navigator

I don’t see a archive template on here. What that does is allows your archive to be seen and search. On EN:Template:Archives there are some options you can view and if we don’t have it here, feel free to ping me and let me know which one you want and I can bring it over to simple. You can just skip to the bottom in the box where all sorts of them are listed. Thanks - Da LambTalk to me!Please don't eat da 🐑! 08:00, 29 July 2022 (UTC)Reply

PotsdamLamb Hi and thanks for the message. You are indeed correct that I do not have a visible archive template here (the one I have may be confusing yea). However I never really use the templates as such I am confused on what's a good one to use. Do you have any suggestions? Tsugaru let's talk! :) 20:14, 29 July 2022 (UTC)Reply
It depends on where you want it and do you want a vertical box or horizontal one? Thanks - Da LambTalk to me!Please don't eat da 🐑! 20:22, 29 July 2022 (UTC)Reply
I like the one simple talk has, it's horizontal so it won't interfere with my other userboxes I have on this talkpage. --Tsugaru let's talk! :) 20:24, 29 July 2022 (UTC)Reply
Ok. Please remember to ping me so I know you posted on here. So there are two. The one in the middle is just to search, but you cannot browse the archives. Then there is the one to the right which allows you to browse them and not search them unless you use the search function in the left column. I have an idea let me play around with it though on my play ground and I will let you know what I come up with. Thanks - Da LambTalk to me!Please don't eat da 🐑! 21:12, 29 July 2022 (UTC)Reply

PotsdamLamb It looks good! Is there anywhere to move the picture of the buses (and remove the text above it) to put it next to the archive box, in a way so it looks like how Chenzw's archives box has the meme next to it? Thanks! Tsugaru let's talk! :) 21:29, 29 July 2022 (UTC)Reply
So I did that with a copy of your user template so I have no way to compare placement. That is because the top half is 1/2 template and the other 1/2 is on this page. It is easier to have everything on one page and call the template. So everything from the top to the comments area could be in a template (but do not put the archiving code (miszabot/config) in the config. Thanks - Da LambTalk to me!Please don't eat da 🐑! 21:33, 29 July 2022 (UTC)Reply
Ok try this; I copied your user template and the other stuff at the top and made it one template. Tell me what you think of it? User:PotsdamLamb/myplayround Thanks - Da LambTalk to me!Please don't eat da 🐑! 21:52, 29 July 2022 (UTC)Reply
PotsdamLamb It looks good! Is that the final version we have? --Tsugaru let's talk! :) 00:03, 30 July 2022 (UTC)Reply
That is one example. It can be adjusted. We don’t have many options unfortunately. Just the links I sent you. You are more than welcome to edit the playground I have no issue with that if you want to try something different. Thanks - Da LambTalk to me!Please don't eat da 🐑! 00:08, 30 July 2022 (UTC)Reply
I saw your edit summary on User:PotsdamLamb/myplayround. Of course it is ok. I said that was ok for you to edit it. You can copy the code whenever you want and let me know so I can have the page deleted. Thanks - Da LambTalk to me!Please don't eat da 🐑! 21:39, 30 July 2022 (UTC)Reply

PotsdamLamb Forgot to ping you, but do you know why the archive link does not work? --Tsugaru let's talk! :) 00:27, 31 July 2022 (UTC)Reply

Ok I fixed it for you. Because it is in a template, it needed the full path to the archive plus it was written as Archives 1, but it is actually Archive 1. Since you opted in to have only one archive page I added a pipe display name to it. You should be good now if you want to check it out.
