Sir I don’t think this page should be delete - https://simple.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mohit_Churiwal Aagamjot (talk) 03:47, 13 September 2021 (UTC)[]

Aagamjot, the page was at requests for deletion, where the consensus was to delete. Please see the request here: Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/2021/Mohit Churiwal. Please respect the consensus of the request for deletion and do not recreate the page. Thank you. --Ferien (talk) 06:18, 13 September 2021 (UTC)[]

Could you check my request at RFP on rollback?Edit

I posted a request there but it seems to have been ignored. Could you check there? SoyokoAnis - talk 16:27, 13 September 2021 (UTC)[]

SoyokoAnis, sometimes RFPs are left unanswered for a little while, it doesn't necessarily mean they are ignored. I have marked your request as "Not done" for now, but please don't be discouraged. Your anti-vandalism work is certainly appreciated, I would just like to see a little more before granting rollback. Best regards, --Ferien (talk) 20:53, 13 September 2021 (UTC)[]

RFD Process TwinkleEdit

Hello Dear @Ferien i can't Nominate this article for RFD, Error Message:Adding deletion tag to article: Failed to retrieve edit token.

did i make a mistake? 🌸 Sakura emad 💖 (talk) 20:03, 16 September 2021 (UTC)[]
Sakura emad, no, you didn't make a mistake. It's another bug I think. I haven't been able to delete pages or warn users with Twinkle either, so I don't think Twinkle can do anything right now. --Ferien (talk) 20:07, 16 September 2021 (UTC)[]
😥 so things must be done manually. 🌸 Sakura emad 💖 (talk) 20:08, 16 September 2021 (UTC)[]
Indeed. Nominating articles for deletion isn't too complicated without Twinkle, though. See Wikipedia:Requests for deletion#Discussed deletion. Ferien (talk) 20:10, 16 September 2021 (UTC)[]


Hello Ferien! If a user continuously nominates multiple RFDs and if most/all of them gone unsuccessful, and if he/she still continues such actions, what can admins do to such a user? And is giving reason like "no wikidata item, no en wiki equivalent" for the RFD suitable? Haoreima (talk) 08:18, 17 September 2021 (UTC)[]

Haoreima, if a user is being really disruptive at requests for deletion, an admin can block them.
Whilst "no wikidata item" and "no enwiki equivalent" can be signs of a page not being notable, they are not reasons to delete in themselves. Best regards, --Ferien (talk) 16:23, 17 September 2021 (UTC)[]
Can these be used as one of the reasons for RFD like User:SHB2000 is saying in each of all his proposing RFDs? Haoreima (talk) 16:27, 17 September 2021 (UTC)[]
erm... that's not my problem that you're creating articles about non-notable subjects. SHB2000 (talk) 22:38, 17 September 2021 (UTC)[]
and is three RfD noms considered "disruptive"? My reasons were that they aren't notable, and fail the GNG criteria. I did not solely give those reasons on "no en article or wikidata item".
If you really want to know what is disruptive RfD nominations, there's a user on Commons who just speedy nominates photos due to lack of FoP. Although they're since TBed after making threats on blocking. Nominating three articles is not disruptive. SHB2000 (talk) 23:08, 17 September 2021 (UTC)[]
SHB2000, no, I wouldn't say three RfD noms is disruptive. When I say "really disruptive", I mean the kind of editing that would count as disruptive editing. --Ferien (talk) 07:05, 18 September 2021 (UTC)[]
makes sense. I went a bit too defensive there because I knew that this thread was about me. SHB2000 (talk) 07:07, 18 September 2021 (UTC)[]
SHB2000 none says your actions are disruptive. Neither Ferien nor I. But a person (not referring to you) is called disruptive editor if he/she breaks wiki guidelines and policy, especially again after being notified/told by others. Your action really shows you don't respect WP:ATA. You are still not replying me the reason why you said the article isn't notable, when I, User:Ferien and User:Sakura emad told you three times about to reply when asked. Haoreima (talk) 07:37, 18 September 2021 (UTC)[]
Your RFD nomination statement/reason for Mutua Bahadur really shows that you have no respect on WP:RELIABLE and WP:N. You said Google Books references are not reliable. It's totally contrasting to what the wikipedia guidelines say. Notability automatically comes if reliable sources are provided. You don't obey such rules and nominate any article according to your own wishes. Haoreima (talk) 07:59, 18 September 2021 (UTC)[]
I'm not engaging in a discussion based on personal attacks. SHB2000 (talk) 08:02, 18 September 2021 (UTC)[]
I don't say either it's "Personal attack" Or "Disruptive". I am just notifying you that you are not obeying, in fact, disrespecting wikipedia guidelines. See this? Haoreima (talk) 08:04, 18 September 2021 (UTC)[]
Perhaps if I highlight the personal attack:

Your RFD nomination statement/reason for Mutua Bahadur really shows that you have no respect on WP:RELIABLE and WP:N. You said Google Books references are not reliable. It's totally contrasting to what the wikipedia guidelines say. Notability automatically comes if reliable sources are provided.

And did you read Macdonald-ross' comment? SHB2000 (talk) 08:07, 18 September 2021 (UTC)[]
Let Mr. Ross comment on his own. Don't relate it. What we can say is that your nomination statement really contradicts to the suggestions provided by the WP:RELIABLE. Am I wrong? Haoreima (talk) 08:16, 18 September 2021 (UTC)[]

  Hello and welcome to Wikipedia! Just in case you didn't know, when you post messages on talkpages and Wikipedia pages, you should sign your posts by typing four tildes ("~~~~") at the end of your message. You can also click on the signature button (  or  ), located in the edit toolbar, which is above the change window. This will put a signature containing your user name or IP address and the time you posted the message. This information is useful because other users will be able to tell who said what, and when.

Enioluwa AdeoluwaEdit

Hello. You deleted this article without discussion, and there's no note on my user talk page. There were sources and Enioluwa Adeoluwa has notability in Nigeria for celebrity interviews as well as being widely reported as a redefining masculinity. This is one of the suggested articles in meta:Write for the Rights Nigeria/Article list.

Could you restore the article please and if you feel this is not enough, we can discuss the deletion as it does not appear very obvious. --Anstil (talk) 14:56, 18 September 2021 (UTC)[]

Hello Anstil. I deleted the page under the QD A4 criteria, the subject of the article did not claim notability in the article. However, the article can be recreated if notability is claimed. If you want the page you created sent to you (via email) to work on further before you publish it again, just let me know. And if you feel that notability was claimed, please go to Wikipedia:Deletion review for another administrator to review. Thanks. --Ferien (talk) 15:02, 18 September 2021 (UTC)[]
QD based on Wikipedia:Deletion_policy#A4 and what is stated at WP:GNG, does not apply if there are secondary sources with significant coverage. These existed in the article before the deletion. It would be simpler to follow the process for having a deletion discussion, rather than having to overturn a deletion. As this is a planned article in the Write for the Rights Nigeria competition, because of Adeoluwa's significant level of public impact on LGBTQ culture in Nigeria, could we follow that simpler and more positive process instead please? Thanks --Anstil (talk) 15:12, 18 September 2021 (UTC)[]
Anstil, I've restored the article and created a request for deletion. --Ferien (talk) 15:31, 18 September 2021 (UTC)[]

Temporary protection requestEdit


Can you temporarily protect the articles Flag, Tricolour, Doner kebab, Yogurt, Country, Baklava, Republic of Artsakh, Kadaif, Azerbaijan, Shambali and Dolma because the IPs and are constantly POV pushing?

I suspect that and are the same person, because the POV pushing is in the same pattern in the same and related articles. The IP has a history of POV pushing and edit warring with other IP users and also administrators/rollbackers. Please check the log and POV edits of this user, and temporarily protect the articles this IP has POV edited on.

The articles Flag, Tricolour and Dolma were temporarily protected until August 7, but has been vandalized again by the same IP. Can you temporarily protect all these articles again?

This IP starts erasing sourced information, POV pushing and edit warring again, once the temporary protections end.

This is the third time I put a protection request in Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard, but no action is being taken.

Yours sincerely, Multituberculata (talk) 15:01, 18 September 2021 (UTC)[]

Hello Multituberculata. I have protected the Shambali article for 4 days. I haven't protected any of the other articles because, in my opinion, they don't have enough vandalism for protection. I've also blocked as an open proxy. Regards, Ferien (talk) 15:17, 18 September 2021 (UTC)[]
Thank you. However, who is likely the same person as, will very likely strike again in the aformentioned articles, today or tomorrow or a bit later. When that happens, what is the next step? Multituberculata (talk) 15:47, 18 September 2021 (UTC)[]
The IP (likely the same person as is striking again and again in the same articles and also in other articles. User:Etoza has reported this IP in Wikipedia:Vandalism in progress for Block evasion, as I did before about this IP's vandalism. The IP will not stop with his/her disruptive edits and behavior. The most recent articles he vandalized on 23 September are Israel, Baklava, Pita, Republic of Artsakh, Kadaif and Dolma. The other articles he vandalizes with POV pushing: Flag, Tricolour, Doner kebab, Yogurt, Country, Azerbaijan, and Shambali, will very likely follow.
Nothing will stop and deter this IP, unless these articles and the IP are temporarily blocked for a much longer period.
Yours sincerely, Multituberculata (talk) 13:05, 25 September 2021 (UTC)[]
The IP Etoza reported had already stopped when you messaged me. --Ferien (talk) 17:39, 26 September 2021 (UTC)[]
This IP will attack again. Shouldn't these articles, and indeed any article not be temporarily protected from attacks? Even your talk page is being constantly attacked by different IPs. If they are not stopped and proscribed, they will become emboldened, as this IP's behavior in those articles, and other malevolent IPs behavior in other articles show. Multituberculata (talk) 20:24, 27 September 2021 (UTC)[]
Multituberculata, protection is actually not used as much here as other wikis. It is usually used when people aren't able to keep up with the amount of vandalism being put on pages. As for my talk page, I would prefer it not to be protected at this time. It makes it more difficult for IP users to contact me and even if I had a separate IP talk page, it would make it more difficult for me to track messages on that page. --Ferien (talk) 20:33, 27 September 2021 (UTC)[]

Hey Sakura emad! I think you should get a bit experience before having rollback, maybe a month or so of editing before I consider granting the rollback right, so you can get to know more about editing here, and what's different from other wikis.

No. That page was already deleted. Derpdart56 (talk) 15:49, 21 September 2021 (UTC)[]

(talk page stalker) Hello, Gimmelover, me again, as multiple editors have told you, DC Themmie is not notable for Wikipedia. The page has been salted because it was recreated and deleted too many times. Cheers Hockeycatcat (talk) 15:50, 21 September 2021 (UTC)[]

Hello Gimmelover. As the others have said above, there was a consensus at requests for deletion to delete the page so please don't recreate it. You are free to start a discussion at deletion review if you believe DC Themmie now meets our notability requirements. Regards, Ferien (talk) 17:40, 21 September 2021 (UTC)[]


Hi Ferien, you blocked, that's fine. I'm wondering where the rationale "blocked p2p proxy|ip=|isp=ADSL PPPoE POOL BNG}} API-confirmed P2P VPN)" comes from. ipcheck.toolforge.org doesn't give sufficient info. Is there a tool I don't know yet that I could probably use on Commons? Regards, Achim55 (talk) 18:25, 21 September 2021 (UTC)[]

Hey Achim55. If you take a look at en:Special:Contributions/, it has been confirmed a P2P VPN by the ST47ProxyBot. I find that IPs blocked by this bot are also usually blocked globally by a steward relatively soon after, so I would say it's quite a reliable way of finding out whether an IP is a VPN or proxy. Regards, Ferien (talk) 18:28, 21 September 2021 (UTC)[]
Thank you! I didn't know of that bot and will check against it in the future. Cheers, Achim55 (talk) 18:33, 21 September 2021 (UTC)[]

Linking to sister sites from simpleEdit

For some weird overkill, when I try to link to a project in regular English (except Wiktionary), I'm out of luck. So b:en: rather just takes me to the incubator and same with voy, s, q, n, v, and so on. Any way to fix this issue? Thanks! SHB2000 (talk) 06:33, 22 September 2021 (UTC)[]

SHB2000, try en:voy: instead of voy:en:. q:en: and b:en: should still take you to English Wikiquote and Wikibooks respectively because a long time ago, there was a Simple English Wikiquote and Wikibooks, but there has never been a Simple Wikisource, Wikivoyage etc. --Ferien (talk) 15:31, 22 September 2021 (UTC)[]

Thank you very much, my friend! Cheers, Hockeycatcat (talk) 15:50, 22 September 2021 (UTC)[]

(talk page stalker) @Hockeycatcat: I agree that those images are being used in a very inappropriate way. However, Wikipedia is not censored and they would be appropriate in the right context, so could we maybe not call them disgusting? --Auntof6 (talk) 18:01, 22 September 2021 (UTC)[]

@Auntof6: I do understand that, I did mean that they were being used inappropriately. It was just shocking to suddenly see it pop up on my talk! Hockeycatcat (talk) 04:22, 23 September 2021 (UTC)[]

Haoreima, oh, I assume SHB2000 doesn't know German so he's just used Google Translate. Ferien (talk) 16:44, 25 September 2021 (UTC)[]
Yeah I can't really speak any languages apart from French and English plus a little bit of Italian as part of my musical knowledge. And don't mind that na-1 bit on my userpage.

Question about Requesting permissionEdit

Hello dear @Ferien i have a question it is related to another wiki however i am just asking about your experience, if we have enough patrollers to patrol the pages,so an admin can refuse someone's Request to be a patrol due to Enough or not Enough numbers of patrollers? 🌸 Sakura emad 💖 (talk) 12:48, 25 September 2021 (UTC)[]

(talk page stalker) Unlike on other wikis, generally, you would need to have a really large amount of articles created (even more than how much someone who's a good regular content creator like Haoreima would have created). I'd say too much that the backlog is too much. Probably the rate of articles that TDKR Chicago 101 would be creating.
In my opinion, I'd have wished that autopatrol was a different right to patrol, where patrol doesn't mark your own articles as patrolled. SHB2000 (talk) 13:18, 25 September 2021 (UTC)[]
@SHB2000: There was actually a discussion about this a few months ago. See Wikipedia:Simple talk/Archive 134#Patrolling new pages. --Ferien (talk) 14:14, 25 September 2021 (UTC)[]
(talk page stalker) @SHB2000: How can you say I am good regular creator? Yes, I am regular but not good enough till now! I am still learning from many wiki-people including you! :) :-) Haoreima (talk) 14:51, 25 September 2021 (UTC)[]
you have created about 600 articles though. SHB2000 (talk) 22:24, 25 September 2021 (UTC)[]
(talk page stalker) @SHB2000: Somebody at the rate of TDKR would be impossible. He's created about a 5th of this wiki's articles. If you see, Darkfrog24 has patroller, though at a much lower rate, about 5 times of mine. Also please note Simple Wiki has a really small number of good editors, most of which are busy undoing vandalism and trying to help occasionally... that being said, @Haoreima is a regular editor, but he has a lot to learn, especially about sourcing and notability.
Again, the main purpose is Wikipedia is to build an encyclopedia, not get enough patrollers.
~~ 💠Ely - Talk💠 15:07, 25 September 2021 (UTC)[]
SHB2000 Yes, Elytrian is right. And as I am not good enough till now, I need to learn a lot, even from you. I am a learner as well as a practitioner, trying to develop wiki better. Any good suggestions are always welcomed. Thanks! Haoreima (talk) 16:54, 25 September 2021 (UTC)[]
"Lack of experience" is a self-solving problem. If Haoreima remains interested in working on Simple, Haoreima will be a patroller on Simple just by continuing on their current path. Darkfrog24 (talk) 18:38, 25 September 2021 (UTC)[]
You'll eventually get patroller, given that only 1% of your articles have had issues. But as time goes, you'd eventually get patroller status and learn all the policies. Although I didn't realise that Darkfrog24 was a patroller though, and it also seems like Jeff G. is also a patroller too. SHB2000 (talk) 04:41, 26 September 2021 (UTC)[]
Somebody at the rate of TDKR would be impossible. He's created about a 5th of this wiki's articles okay, so I've clearly underestimated how much articles TDKR Chicago 101 has created and didn't realise that they have about 161k edits. That is quite a lot. SHB2000 (talk) 04:43, 26 September 2021 (UTC)[]


I requested a permission, specifically rollback, but it was ignored. Could you take a look at it? For others an admin answered within a day... 💠Ely - Talk💠 16:39, 26 September 2021 (UTC)[]

Elytrian, I'll take a look at it. Just so you know if you request for a permission, if your request isn't answered within a few days, an admin isn't ignoring it. They may be waiting to see if another admin comments, or to see what other changes you may make etc. Ferien (talk) 16:52, 26 September 2021 (UTC)[]
