Harry WinksEdit

Hey Auntof6, please see the edit history of Harry Winks. Deppty (talk) 20:02, 5 April 2022 (UTC)

@Deppty: Please be more specific. The page as it exists now doesn't appear to be vandalism. -- Auntof6 (talk) 20:04, 5 April 2022 (UTC)
Okay, thanks! Deppty (talk) 20:07, 5 April 2022 (UTC)
As it is now, its an en.copy paste with a section deleted from the middle. Same intro, cats, Eternal links. The page was created as vandalism (see its history) and the vandal copied over the en. version of the pages to replace their vandalism. In its current state if fails under qd-a3. Vandal is just trying to game the system. --Creol(talk) 22:44, 5 April 2022 (UTC)


I have manually reverted multiple trivia segments that you have re-added, saying that people should "incorporate it into the article". I have gone through this and found that none of this information is actually notable, however and so I have deleted it. MrMeAndMrMeLet's talk 04:34, 23 April 2022 (UTC)

@MrMeAndMrMe: That's fine. If there's nothing worth keeping, it's fine to delete it. Did I do that a long time ago? I don't remember doing that recently. -- Auntof6 (talk) 04:35, 23 April 2022 (UTC)
Derpdart removed the trivia in December of 2021, which you re added in February of this year. MrMeAndMrMeLet's talk 04:37, 23 April 2022 (UTC)


The targets are not copies. they do not exist. The system is showing an echo while reporting the page as an error. In the one case, the user requested the target be deleted. --Creol(talk) 22:18, 26 April 2022 (UTC)

@Creol: In the ones I've seen, the user requested that the target be deleted so that the meta user page would appear in its place. To me, the redirects still have value. -- Auntof6 (talk) 22:19, 26 April 2022 (UTC)
As its contested, the broken redirect has been taken to RfD --Creol(talk) 22:36, 26 April 2022 (UTC)
@Creol: Noted. I think it would be better to discuss this kind of case in general, since there are a few of them. -- Auntof6 (talk) 22:39, 26 April 2022 (UTC)

April 2022Edit

Hello! I created your Talk Page to leave a message: I'm sorry that you reverted the page for Times Square Ball. In this case, I updated the text and make it shorter. Thank you for your cooperation. AVSASPH (talk) 07:04, 29 April 2022 (UTC)

erasing of The Lady of Rage with not notable by Simple Wikipedia standardsEdit

On Simple English, The Lady of Rage was tagged as not notable even though there were several reference citing what the rapper had done listed in the article. Do singers, musicians or actors have to always win a particular award before being added onto Simple English? Angela Kate Maureen Pears 08:32, 29 April 2022 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) Having reviewed the deleted version of the article, there were not any sources in the article, nor was there any indication that the musician met the MUSIC notability guideline. I have no objection with bringing the article back, but not in its current deleted state. Griff (talk) 08:45, 29 April 2022 (UTC)
Right now my HP branded personal laptop is undergoing repairs in the Cedar Rapids cell phone and computer shop at the Lindale Mall for a screen replacing. When it gets out the shop, I'll recreate the page better than it was when it was erased, with an attribution and several references that will prove how notable the rapper iss for Simple English. Angela Kate Maureen Pears 09:04, 29 April 2022 (UTC)
 (change conflict)  @Tropical Storm Angela: There were no references. As for winning certain awards, that is not required as long as there is something that shows notability. Winning notable awards is only one way to do that. -- Auntof6 (talk) 08:48, 29 April 2022 (UTC)

Breaking citationsEdit

Could you please pay a little more attention when cleaning up.. This] is the second time on two days you broke references by changing the URL on cite template to website. This creates two errors each time. 1. no URL for the reference and 2. Website is now an external link. --Creol(talk) 02:33, 2 May 2022 (UTC)

@Creol: Sorry about that. I'll be more careful, and I'll watch the error category to catch it if I do it again. I fixed Jimi Hendrix. What was the other one I broke? -- Auntof6 (talk) 02:37, 2 May 2022 (UTC)
Don't remember which one it was yesterday that I undid. I reverted the change and redid the clean up of the parameters. I also redid and got the other ref error in there. There is still a hidden one, but its a bit harder to weed out. As its a minor issue (abbreviated date range) with little to no impact, I'm not stressing out over it yet. --Creol(talk) 02:52, 2 May 2022 (UTC)

Changes on somatic symptom disorderEdit

Can you please clarify the following changes on the page just mentioned above?

  • First of all: The area saying these were named somatoform disorders was switched to the second column. Are there any reasons behind this?
  • Second of all: The physical symptoms also suggest injury and illness of different classes was moved up/changed to The symptoms can't be explained by a medical condition or by substance abuse. I thought the earlier was stronger and better in tone on Simple English Wikipedia. Was it not?
  • Third of all: Symptoms may be often similar to other conditions was changed to Symptoms can be similar to other conditions. Is may not really as strong as can or not the proper term?
  • Fourth of all: Male reporters was converted to males. Was the first not the proper term or not simple enough for a page here?
  • Fifth of all: For what particular reason was that sentence about the females (women/girls) more likely to have the disorder compared to males flagged as unsourced even though there were one or two sources?

I know some people who have this condition. I tried to find as many sources as possible. Also, I have to be careful of different words on Simple English compared to the regular English Wikipedia. Angela Kate Maureen Pears 05:57, 8 May 2022 (UTC)

@Tropical Storm Angela: Answers:
  1. I assume you mean it was moved to the second paragraph. I did that because it's simpler to just explain the condition in the first paragraph. A reader doesn't need to know what it used to be called to understand what the condition is. It helps English learners to organize information this way, with one idea per paragraph.
  2. I didn't so much change that text as just remove it. To me, it was complex and hard to understand. Saying that symptoms suggest something is medical jargon, and jargon is usually not simple language for our purposes. "Illness of different classes" might not make sense to English learners, because of the multiple meanings of the word class; to most people, the first thing they think of when they hear that word is a class in the sense of education, not in the sense of classification.
  3. It isn't a question of which word is stronger. It's a question of which word is simpler and clearer. Can is simpler and clearer.
  4. The first thing most people would think of when they hear "male reporters" is males whose job is being a journalist of some kind. One of the things needed in simple English is avoiding words that have multiple meanings when you can. In this sense, the word "reporters" isn't needed.
  5. I didn't see a source for the fact about females. However, I see that the reference to The BMJ requires a subscription to see the full article. I don't have a subscription, so I can't see the whole article. If the information about females is in the hidden part of the article, then go ahead and remove the {{cn}} template.
Hope that helps. -- Auntof6 (talk) 08:39, 8 May 2022 (UTC)

Childhood categoryEdit

Hi Auntof6. I noticed that there is both Category:Children and Category:Childhood. Is there a clear distinction between these? For example, Boy is in Childhood but Girl is not. Furthermore, I think some articles in Children like Baby and Toddler might belong in Category:Human life stages. Thanks. Lights and freedom (talk) 19:50, 13 May 2022 (UTC)

@Lights and freedom: I see babies and toddlers as being subsets of children. People are children from the time they're born until they become adults. So I don't think that babies and toddlers should be separate life stages.
As for children vs. childhood, I think Category:Children should contain actual children and be a subcat of Category:Childhood. Other things could go under childhood. So there's some work that could be done there. -- Auntof6 (talk) 19:56, 13 May 2022 (UTC)
Ok, it makes sense that babies and toddlers can be subsets of children. Lights and freedom (talk) 19:58, 13 May 2022 (UTC)

Cities and towns in ItalyEdit

To me, it seems like the categories listed here: Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/2022/Category:Cities and towns in Italy are still inconsistent. Do you agree? This wasn't really resolved at the RfD, so a decision should be made if the status quo isn't good enough. Lights and freedom (talk) 08:20, 16 May 2022 (UTC)

@Lights and freedom: I haven't had a chance to look at it. If I do, I'll get back to you. -- Auntof6 (talk) 08:46, 16 May 2022 (UTC)
