Mountain Sweet HoneyEdit

Do you think this article is notable? Should we start an RfD? Doesn't seem to meet out guidelines. --IWI (talk) 15:18, 16 October 2020 (UTC)

I'm placing the tag as we speak. Google News/Archive/Books turned up nothing. Darkfrog24 (talk) 15:22, 16 October 2020 (UTC)
Yep agreed. I voted on the discussion. --IWI (talk) 15:27, 16 October 2020 (UTC)

Page Views templateEdit

  • I have the dailypage views template on my talkpage, but mine is screwed up. Can you help me fix it? --つがる Let's Talk! :) 🍁 03:23, 30 November 2020 (UTC)
Sorry, I don't know how to fix that. Darkfrog24 (talk) 00:36, 3 December 2020 (UTC)

Happy Holidays!Edit

  Merry Christmas Darkfrog24

Hi Darkfrog24, I wish you and your family a very
Merry Christmas (if you celebrate it)/holiday season

Thank you for all your contributions to the Simple English Wikipedia :),

Aw, thanks! You too, IWI! Darkfrog24 (talk) 01:20, 24 December 2020 (UTC)

Lead formattingEdit

I don't know if you are aware, but italics are used for books, albums, tv series, films, but songs are not put into italics and are instead put in speech marks in text like "In the Summertime". This also means the italictitle template shouldn't be used on song articles. Thanks :). --IWI (talk) 19:50, 7 January 2021 (UTC)

I see. I remember that the Regular English Wikipedia adopted italics as an option for song titles a few years back when doing so began to catch on in the wider world, but I guess Simple has not done so. Still, I'd vote for it if it ever comes up. It avoids that fraught British/American divide on comma placement. Darkfrog24 (talk) 19:53, 7 January 2021 (UTC)
It did not. The guideline is the same on the English Wikipedia. See en:List of best-selling singles for examples. --IWI (talk) 19:56, 7 January 2021 (UTC)
Huh. Could have sworn it had. Darkfrog24 (talk) 20:01, 7 January 2021 (UTC)
It is the case for long works like albums and books, but not short works. Enwiki's manual of style states:

Use italics for the titles of works (such as books, films, television series, named exhibitions, computer games, music albums, and paintings). The titles of articles, chapters, songs, episodes, research papers and other short works instead take double quotation marks.

though it is an easy mistake to make :) --IWI (talk) 20:03, 7 January 2021 (UTC)
GASP You used the M-word!! Now by the laws of the Internet, we must duel to the death. Choose your weapon, sirrah!
I kid, of course. Yes, I know all about long-form vs short-form title presentation. I simply approve of using italics for songs because of the problems doing so avoids. But it is Project Wiki's duty to reflect the English language as it is and not attempt to change it by promoting one practice over others for no reason. Darkfrog24 (talk) 20:11, 7 January 2021 (UTC)
Lol. Yeah if you disagree you can discuss it, but that is currently the guideline that should be followed. --IWI (talk) 21:23, 7 January 2021 (UTC)
The only thing I truly insist on is no incorrect English. Darkfrog24 (talk) 21:31, 7 January 2021 (UTC)

Making an RfD for an articleEdit

Hello! You added an RfD template to a page (World development foundation) but didn't create a request or add it to the RfD page. I have put the article you nominated up on the RfD page and added a discussion page. Many thanks, Belwine💬📜 16:05, 9 January 2021 (UTC)

Hi, I've noticed you've seen the RfD already, sorry for putting a comment after you posted on there... Belwine💬📜 16:06, 9 January 2021 (UTC)
You're just being extra conscientious. I noticed this morning and went through my old changes to see which other ones I'd missed. I saw you'd taken initiative on that. It's all rightly done. Darkfrog24 (talk) 16:33, 9 January 2021 (UTC)
Also, please remember to add any RfDs you start to the RfD page. A couple you started today weren’t and they can end up being "ghost RfDs" that nobody can see if nobody catches them. Thanks, --IWI (talk) 16:47, 9 January 2021 (UTC)
Okay, real issue. How do I add them to the page? What I've done so far is click on the "Click here to create a discussion page" and then doing so. What's the extra step needed to make them appear on RfD Central? Darkfrog24 (talk) 16:50, 9 January 2021 (UTC)
Add the page name in template brackets on the page like: {{Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/requests/2021/blah}}. Same as the others on the page. Alternatively, you can use Twinkle to automate the process. --IWI (talk) 16:58, 9 January 2021 (UTC)
Never mind. Got it. Darkfrog24 (talk) 16:58, 9 January 2021 (UTC)

Data Deficient...Edit

Hello Darkfrog24, I recently created the page Data deficient. It also shows a frog, which hasn't been seen since 1989. Can you have a quick look? - If you find a better example than the frog, feel free to replace the image.Thanks--Eptalon (talk) 23:56, 1 February 2021 (UTC)

Good call. The golden toad isn't data deficient. It's considered extinct. The problem is that most data deficient species won't have pictures available. I'll see what I can do. Darkfrog24 (talk) 00:06, 2 February 2021 (UTC)
I created a redirect for "Data Deficient" (I think we might want to move the page there eventually), and clicked "what links here." Most of my DD froggies don't have pictures available, but turns out the megamouth shark does! We've also got the coconut crab and a bunch of shrews and other mammals to choose from. Darkfrog24 (talk) 00:15, 2 February 2021 (UTC)
Added a picture of a chameleon of Madagascar. The coconut crab is listed as "vulnerable" at EnWP...--Eptalon (talk) 00:45, 2 February 2021 (UTC)
I checked the IUCN Red List and updated Simple's Coconut crab article to show its actual status. The Red List entry was marked "2020," so perhaps it was DD until recently. Darkfrog24 (talk) 03:54, 2 February 2021 (UTC)
