Some cookies to welcome you!  

Welcome to Wikipedia, Derpdart56! I'm Desertborn and an active editor here. Thank you for your changes. I just wanted to say hi and welcome you to Wikipedia! If you have any questions check out Wikipedia:Questions, or leave a message on simple talk. I know you've already been around for a bit, but were never welcomed before so thought I would. I hope you like Wikipedia and decide to stay. Here are some pages that you might find helpful:

Also, when you post on talk pages you should sign your name using four tildes (~~~~); that should automatically produce your username and the date after your post. I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Desertborn (talk) 20:13, 26 September 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for the introduction! Derpdart56 (talk) 20:19, 26 September 2019 (UTC)

We are called 'Simple' for a reason...Edit

Your new page cardinal numeral is an exact copy of the article on En wiki. Now, if we wanted to do that, we would arrange for a bot to do it, wouldn't we? I mean, we're not complete idiots...

What you need to do is to make the language simple enough to be understood by a ten-year old. You should do this before putting the page up on the wiki. For some editors, a sub-page of their user-page is a good idea. Anyway, you need to stop copy-pasting pages from En onto this wiki. I leave it as it is for the moment so you can see the point. Macdonald-ross (talk) 07:36, 3 October 2019 (UTC)

Now I changed it. Macdonald-ross (talk) 15:36, 3 October 2019 (UTC)
Sorry. Won't happen again. Derpdart56 (talk) 16:01, 3 October 2019 (UTC)

Warning usersEdit

Hi, glad to see that you are settling in over here. When warning users next time with warning templates (such as {{uw-vandalism1}}), please substitute the template instead by adding subst: before the template name:

{{subst:uw-vandalism1|Article title}}

When you substitute a template, what happens is that you cause a copy of the template text (the entire warning message) to be placed on the page, instead of merely a reference to a template ({{uw-vandalism1}}). You can see the difference by going to these two revisions, and clicking "change this page" to view the page's wikicode: [1] [2]. Alternatively, if you prefer, Twinkle also has functionality to warn users. I see that you have used Twinkle to welcome users already; the "warn" tab above will open the interface for leaving warning messages to users.

Feel free to drop me a message on my talk page if you have any queries. Chenzw  Talk  09:13, 9 October 2019 (UTC)

Okay. Thanks for the tip. Derpdart56 (talk) 14:33, 9 October 2019 (UTC)

Quick deletion of Bates familyEdit

The page you wrote, Bates family, has been selected for quick deletion. If you think this page should be kept, please add {{wait}} below the line {{QD}} and say why on the talk page. If the page is already gone, but you think this was an error, you can ask for it to be undeleted. You can find more information about the reason here. Derpdart56 (talk) 21:22, 14 October 2019 (UTC)

About the welcomeEdit

Oh, thx for welcoming me. Great to see you dealing with spam with deletion requests. Keep up the good work. Make sure that you report this to an active admin so that they can decide whether or not to debate or just delete it. Personally, if I was an admin, I'd delete it, because it lacks content, no sources and just a bunch of nonsense. --Auri1999 (talk) 20:09, 21 October 2019 (UTC)

Oh, thx for suggesting that. I will use Twinkle from now on. --Auri1999 (talk) 20:12, 21 October 2019 (UTC)

Relay Ball (Sport)Edit

I am the true creator of Relay Ball I would like it up and running please on Wikipedia I like Wikipedia and actually I won’t misuse it. Relayball47 (talk) 19:30, 22 October 2019 (UTC)

Alright, but you should get an en wiki article first. Derpdart56 (talk) 20:47, 22 October 2019 (UTC)

How do I do that? Relayball47 (talk) 20:49, 22 October 2019 (UTC)

Go to the english wikipedia, and create Relay Ball (sport). Derpdart56 (talk) 20:51, 22 October 2019 (UTC)

For future reference, it is never a good idea to give the above advice. We don't base our articles off of the English Wikipedia, and as such having an article on Enwiki (or any other project) is not a prerequisite for being notable here. Also, this is an editor who has dozens of accounts, all blocked, used to spam Relay Ball. Best, Vermont (talk) 20:55, 22 October 2019 (UTC)

@Vermont:That was my mistake. I did not know the person's past, so I trusted them. Thanks for the heads up about this, though. I will QD any articles about Relay ball. Derpdart56 (talk) 21:02, 22 October 2019 (UTC)

Ok, I won't. Just remove it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Derpdart56 (talkcontribs)

Your revert on FoodEdit

FYI your revert on Food actually restored vandalism even though it fixed the blanking. I think the vandal was trying to game the system to get their vandalism to stay. I've restored an earlier version prior to any of the vandalism taking place. But thought I would mention...sometimes its worth checking prior edits (if recent) before restoring a version. Desertborn (talk) 17:49, 24 October 2019 (UTC)


The page explicitly allows test edits for editors new to the encyclopedia, so more leeway tends to be given to anonymous editors (just like the sandbox). The same goes for Wikipedia:Student tutorial. Of course, libellous or offensive material should still be reverted on sight. Chenzw  Talk  02:07, 26 October 2019 (UTC) Oh. Sorry, didn't know that. Thanks for the heads up. --Derpdart56 (talk) 02:43, 26 October 2019 (UTC)


Hi there, if you'd like, I can set up a way for you to get the news out to more people and help with making it an actual, community accepted simple english news article. Thank you. rollingbarrels (talk) 00:15, 19 February 2020 (UTC)

Also, please leave a talkback on my talk page after responding, thanks. rollingbarrels (talk) 01:05, 19 February 2020 (UTC)

Eh, it's more of my own side project. Derpdart56 (talk) 13:46, 16 April 2020 (UTC)

RfD nomination of Nintendo DS accessoriesEdit

An editor has requested deletion of Nintendo DS accessories, an article you created. We appreciate your changes, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article meets Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in the nomination (see also "What Wikipedia is not").

Please comment on the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/2020/Nintendo DS accessories and please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also change the article during the discussion to address the nominator's concerns. But you should not remove the requests for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate. Thank you very much. --sithjarjar666 (my profile | my contribs | speak to me) 20:44, 19 June 2020 (UTC)
