Welcome!Edit

 
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.

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)
