"A" QD criteriaEdit

Please not these only apply to the mainspace, and can't be used to delete talk pages. The "G" criteria are the ones that can be used in all namespaces. Thanks, --IWI (talk) 16:06, 14 February 2021 (UTC)

Ok.. They appear in Twinkle, which is why I used it. Then again, Twinkle shows A3 as just "Article that exists on another Wikimedia project". Thanks for the information, Belwine (talk) 16:09, 14 February 2021 (UTC)
Well this is valid, I will suggest why not we tweak the TW to only allow A criterions to be tagged when namespace is article. A3 isn't to be used for talk/user spaces as they might be confused about not having sandboxes and use those to simplify. However, if there isn't attribution, I will think it should meets G12. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 17:16, 14 February 2021 (UTC)
Note that Twinkle only shows A criteria for articles and article talk pages. And about A3, it just shows "Article that exists on another Wikimedia project", when in reality, it is article that has not been simplified that exists on another Wikimedia project. Belwine (talk) 17:19, 14 February 2021 (UTC)
I will think limiting to Article alone will be beneficial. Actually Twinkle did have this bolded part, just not on the main menu, notice the "?" beside the criterion, hover your mouse over that and this part is shown. We can tweak to show the whole portion if is better? I had started a thread on ST so we might as well add to there, thanks :) Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 17:24, 14 February 2021 (UTC)
Thanks, if I have anything else to say, I'll add there. Belwine (talk) 17:26, 14 February 2021 (UTC)

Dat ArticlerEdit

Hey, I feel that Loss aversion is more of a wikt item and not really for wp. The reason being it is the definition of what it is, with no sources and no real explanation or anything deep about it. Thoughts? --PotsdamLamb (talk) 21:54, 15 February 2021 (UTC)

I feel like it is ok, it is a little more than a dictionary definition. Note the article I recently nominated for deletion, see here, had one sentence, but was expanded quite easily, and everybody said keep. --Belwine (talk) 22:23, 15 February 2021 (UTC)
I would have voted to keep on that too because I know there is a lot of information on that topic. :) PotsdamLamb (talk) 22:32, 15 February 2021 (UTC)
There is lots of information on the English Wikipedia here. I'm sure it could be expanded further. --Belwine (talk) 09:44, 16 February 2021 (UTC)

Your change to Notes on NationalismEdit

This change you made removed a needed template to display notes. Please watch out for pages that need both reference and notes displays. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 00:26, 16 February 2021 (UTC)

Oops, apologies. --Belwine (talk) 09:43, 16 February 2021 (UTC)

Last warningsEdit

About this change you made: when there is already a last warning on the page, it doesn't help to leave another last warning. It just makes it look like the last warnings don't mean anything. The action to take if the user continues the problem edits is to report at VIP. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 19:29, 17 February 2021 (UTC)

Hi. I gave a level 4 warning again as I was unsure whether the level 4 warning from IWI was necessary - I just saw that it went from level 2 to level 4. However, I should have really done a level 2 warning then a level 3 warning, instead of two level 2 warnings, so I understand why IWI warned level 4 now.
Also, are welcomes level 1 warnings or are they like level 0 warnings? Thanks. --Belwine (talk) 19:45, 17 February 2021 (UTC)
Welcomes are not warnings at all. Neither are notices that a page has been nominated for QD or RFD. --Auntof6 (talk) 20:13, 17 February 2021 (UTC)
Ok, I'll always make sure that I start on level 1 after welcomes.
Whilst QD notices do not count as warnings, I assume these do count as warnings.
Thanks, --Belwine (talk) 20:22, 17 February 2021 (UTC)
 (change conflict)  There is no firm rules on how users should be warned, it is just advised they at least receive some warnings before a block happens, except with LTAs, socks, and obvious vandal only accounts. Generally, logged-in users can be blocked with fewer warnings than IPs as we know they are connected to one person. It can sometimes become clear quickly that an account has been created for spam or vandalism only. There is no rule that says you must give the four warnings before a block. You don't even have to use the template warnings, though it is probably the best method. --IWI (talk) 20:24, 17 February 2021 (UTC)
@ImprovedWikiImprovment: While that is true, when I look at the VIP entries, I want to see more than just a final or only warning, except in cases of things like personal attacks, legal threats, etc. The idea is to try to encourage people to be constructive contributors by giving them a chance to see that there's a limit to what we'll tolerate instead of blocking them for their first edit. Some people (and I've seen this in the business world) think they can do whatever they want just because they're allowed to edit here. The warnings are designed to explain that that's not the case, starting with lower-level warnings ("Hey, guy, that's not cool, there are rules here") and graduating to higher-level ones ("OK, we've given you chances to clean up your act: if you keep this up we'll block you.") --Auntof6 (talk) 20:34, 17 February 2021 (UTC)
@Belwine: Yes, those count as warnings. --Auntof6 (talk) 20:34, 17 February 2021 (UTC)

┌─────────────────────────────────┘
Ok, thanks for the information. --Belwine (talk) 20:26, 17 February 2021 (UTC)

@Auntof6: I agree completely, I was just pointing out the four warnings aren't to die by, and I often start at level 2 or higher for more serious vandals. Accounts being created and immediatley making personal attacks should be blocked without comment, as you said. In run-of-the-mill vandals, I would typically give 4 warnings with the hope they will make helpful changes instead. --IWI (talk) 20:38, 17 February 2021 (UTC)

VIP BoardEdit

Hey Belwine - You should not be reverting the VIP board, they still need to be reported and put into the archives so there is a record of it. Only admins should be deleting anything off of there. I deleted two things last night which were my own because of a huggle configuration error and they fixed it. Thanks PotsdamLamb (talk) 21:48, 20 February 2021 (UTC)

I just want to note that there are no archives on VIP. I mainly reverted it because the user has been confirmed as a sock of an LTA on Commons, and the user was already blocked here when you reported.
Sometimes, LTAs go on VIP, and it is not very fun, so I reverted your entry to prevent LTAs from responding. I don't think this LTA is very active here though, so I'm fine with you keeping the report there for now. —Belwine (talk) 21:51, 20 February 2021 (UTC)

Short descriptionEdit

In general English Wikipedia, the Short description of an article can be entered by using template { { Short description | XYZ ABC } } but in simple Wikipedia, how can we do that? I found the very template useless. Besides, the short description given in Sanamahi is totally wrong, who did that? I want to know! Can I manage these things too? Please help me! Haoreima (talk) 05:50, 22 February 2021 (UTC)

Hi. I don't think we have short descriptions here. I think we get them from Wikidata. —Belwine (talk) 08:10, 22 February 2021 (UTC)

By short description, I mean a few lines which are highlighted just below the title of the article. For example, Helen of Troy, has a highlight "Daughter of Zeus". Like that one, in the page Sanamahi too. I want to know how it's added or edited? Haoreima (talk) 10:33, 22 February 2021 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) @Haoreima: As Belwine states, we take those from Wikidata. --IWI (talk) 10:50, 22 February 2021 (UTC)
Ok. Go to Wikidata and search for the article you want to add the short description to. Then, add a description to the "Description" part. —Belwine (talk) 10:51, 22 February 2021 (UTC)

Oh, thanks for the info. And 😔sorry for asking once more. Haoreima (talk) 10:56, 22 February 2021 (UTC)

Final WarningEdit

This is your final warning. If you continue to edit Wikipedia and revert vandalism like you have been, you will become addicted. Haha! 😬 Hope today was good. I see you’ve been busy. Sorry I wasn’t around today I had to attend training and renew a couple of my state certifications for work. I should be around tomorrow a little bit. I’m on graveyards for the next three weeks until my COVID-19, 20, and 21 (and 22) vaccination is complete. PotsdamLamb (talk) 04:32, 23 February 2021 (UTC)

I think I already am!
A Wikibreak will be coming up relatively soon, don't worry :) —Belwine (talk) 08:24, 23 February 2021 (UTC)
oh, on another note. See #Tech News: 2021-08, this may have been the issue you were facing here. —Belwine (talk) 13:51, 23 February 2021 (UTC)
Yeah, I saw that. I will revisit that at some point. :) PotsdamLamb (talk) 16:24, 23 February 2021 (UTC)

User accountEdit

Will deleting my user account from general English Wikipedia affect to my account in simple English Wikipedia?

And, Can anyone block a Wikipedia user who is already retired? Haoreima (talk) 05:48, 23 February 2021 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) @Haoreima: - No one can delete an account, not even you. See en:Wikipedia:Username_policy#Deleting_and_merging_accounts. You will see some options available to you. The account is a universal account. Once you log into any Wikipedia your account is automatically created. So say you are logged in now to simple and you go to the Spanish Wikipedia your account is automatically created. I highly recommend you do not create multiple accounts. This can lead to very bad things if you get blocked for anything. As far as blocking, only administrators and higher can block an account. Typically retired users are not blocked. See en:Wikipedia:Blocking_policy for the entire policy about blocking. I hope this has helped you. PotsdamLamb (talk) 06:51, 23 February 2021 (UTC)

Hamoon HemmatEdit

Hello, do you think they are not significant in terms of being doublers?If you can help me expand the article to stay on Wikipedia.--منع الواقع (talk) 10:44, 25 February 2021 (UTC)

I was searching up online and I couldn't find any news articles, or anything that showed notability. Please feel free to discuss on the Request for Deletion here. —Belwine (talk) 10:46, 25 February 2021 (UTC)
Hi, I have completed the article and added many sources to it. Do you think it is not suitable for publication now?--MNL (talk) 15:32, 25 February 2021 (UTC)
Unfortunately, the subject does not appear to be notable enough for Wikipedia. Sorry. Even these references are only brief mentions and not solely based on him, and the ones based on him appear to be primary sources. Best, —Belwine (talk) 15:49, 25 February 2021 (UTC)
You are right, I tried to get all the sources, and again, if I find a source that can be referred to, I will add it. Maybe I will launch a poll to create it later, but I do not think I will be able to do it soon.--MNL (talk) 15:59, 25 February 2021 (UTC)
Ok, maybe when the subject of the article is notable enough, the article can be created. —Belwine (talk) 16:00, 25 February 2021 (UTC)

ThankyouEdit

(To Belwine) Thankyou for your support and suggestions, Next time I will give my best. ThankYou! @MrManasharma MrManasharma (talk) 15:01, 26 February 2021 (UTC)

Ok, I just reverted your edits as the article made sense before. Best, —Belwine (talk) 15:02, 26 February 2021 (UTC)
@MrManasharma: This change just makes the article make less sense. We don't have to use "the", "are" and "a" in everything, and definitely not here. —Belwine (talk) 15:13, 26 February 2021 (UTC)

@Belwine: There is no sense of sentence without these words.So why these changes are not matter. I think that with my these types of changes there is no any effect on any article... MrManasharma (talk) 15:20, 26 February 2021 (UTC)

The sentence definitely does make sense without your addition.
"Basic English (Business Academic Scientific International Commercial) is a controlled language used to explain the complex thoughts." We don't need to use "the" here. Not every noun needs to have a "the" or "a" behind it.
"Some articles are in the Simple English Wikipedia use only Basic English." This addition made the sentence make no sense. It is unclear whether it is saying "Some articles are in the Simple English Wikipedia. Use only Basic English." or "Some articles in the Simple English use only Basic English." Best, —Belwine (talk) 15:29, 26 February 2021 (UTC)

QuestionEdit

People may already asked this(maybe),but why does some colors in the color shades template link to a non existent article called shades of (*color name*) ?12345678910FruitTalk(My Changes) 12:44, 27 February 2021 (UTC) sorry for asking

@12345678910Fruit: Can you show me an example of this so I can look further? Thanks, —Belwine (talk) 12:46, 27 February 2021 (UTC)
@Belwine: In the shades of cyan template,the color Ice blue links to "Shades of cyan".

12345678910FruitTalk(My Changes) 12:50, 27 February 2021 (UTC)

Oh, I see. I don't know for sure why this is, but I am guessing it is because these are on the "Shades of cyan" page on the English Wikipedia. Thanks, —Belwine (talk) 12:52, 27 February 2021 (UTC)

/* Nationalmusiq */ descussionEdit

hey dear am here to talk about the deletion of Nationalmusiq wikipedia page i a have my opion on it i would like you to hear — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sammykingstown (talkcontribs) 21:44, 27 February 2021 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) You should state it on the RFD page for Nationalmusiq, so your argument/point on the article can be seen. --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 21:45, 27 February 2021 (UTC)
 (change conflict)  Ok. I think it'd be better to voice your opinion on the request for deletion here, as it keeps everything in one place, and can help people participating in the RfD. —Belwine (talk) 21:47, 27 February 2021 (UTC)

okay thank you but about the article i have read it and it is intresting i think the article can stay so more information can be added to it or editior who knows about him can fix it up for him what are your thoughts — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sammykingstown (talkcontribs) 21:52, 27 February 2021 (UTC)

I think that the subject of the article isn't notable, and so the article should be deleted, hence why I nominated it for quick deletion earlier. —Belwine (talk) 21:54, 27 February 2021 (UTC)

do you work on wikipedia — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sammykingstown (talkcontribs) 21:57, 27 February 2021 (UTC)

It depends what you are saying. I edit here to build the encyclopedia, yes, but I do not work for the Wikimedia Foundation. I don't see how this is relevant though? —Belwine (talk) 21:59, 27 February 2021 (UTC)

okay so why do you request the article to be delete? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sammykingstown (talkcontribs) 22:02, 27 February 2021 (UTC)

I requested the article to be deleted because it does not meet the general notability guideline, and it could have been deleted under quick delete reason A4. However, as the article has been deleted quite a few times already, Eptalon sent the article to requests for deletion, where the article will be discussed about for a week, and the community will choose to either delete, keep, or do something else with the article. —Belwine (talk) 22:04, 27 February 2021 (UTC)

Okay can the article be fix up in the mean while — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sammykingstown (talkcontribs) 22:09, 27 February 2021 (UTC)

Yep, the article can be improved during the RfD. Best, —Belwine (talk) 22:10, 27 February 2021 (UTC)

okay you say you edit things and build wiki what is your oppion on the fix up of the article

StatsEdit

How can I count the number of articles I have created in this Wikipedia? Is there any stats page of Wikipedia users? Haoreima (talk) 12:02, 28 February 2021 (UTC)

See this. It's your contributions, but it only includes new pages that you have created in the main space. Note it also includes redirects. If you just count all of those (apart from the redirects) then you can get the number of articles you have created. This is the way I do it, there may be another way to do it. Best, —Belwine (talk) 12:17, 28 February 2021 (UTC)

Fortunately, I found it. Actually, I was talking about this one. https://simple.wikiscan.org/utilisateur/Haoreima By the way, thanks for reply. Haoreima (talk) 13:01, 28 February 2021 (UTC)
