My general editsEdit

Hi, appreciate you going through some of my edits. First, wanted to apologise if most of my edits are mainly general for now - particularly adding general stubs tagging (hat tip to:@Thegooduser: and @Auntof6:) for pointing me towards the right direction about stubs), then the categories and most importantly, the infoboxes. I know I still have a long way to go and I'm still in the process of learning about the specifics and will probably make a mistake or two, so I hope I'm not giving you unnecessary burden by doing those general edits because I noticed you have to go through them and sort of have to redo them for their specific settings. Thanks to you all for your patience and all the guidance. --Infogapp1 (talk) 20:13, 4 June 2020 (UTC)

Oh no, your edits were mostly fine. I was just expanding on them. Just happened you edited a couple that are on my watch list and I had a few minutes to spare at the time so I expanded on what you were doing. The only tip I might give, is that a "no sources" tag on an article that is only a sentence or two long is pretty much redundant if its already marked stub as well because most people will be able to see on such a short article that there are no sources without needing the tag which just becomes an eyesore in that case. But yeah in general good edits. -Djsasso (talk) 22:24, 4 June 2020 (UTC)
Awesome, I just wanted to make sure I'm being more helpful than causing the opposite, haha. Yeah, that makes total sense. Will keep this in mind in my future edits, especially for countries. Do you have to manually fill out the country and geographical details in the infobox when you do those, or is there some Wikiwand or tool I may not be aware of? I'd like to try and expand one of those pages once I get a hang of the process. Also, I learned from you about politicians and not just add infobox-person. Any other common categories I should be on the lookout for when editing infoboxes? I like to do those, so I just to make sure I gradually do more specific ones. --Infogapp1 (talk) 22:46, 4 June 2020 (UTC)
Most of the time you can look on English Wikipedia for infobox information. We don't always have the same type of infobox as them but the information is often similar enough for our uses. But a lot of the times we have the same infobox as them. You just have to make sure any language you bring over is simple, but for infobox information that isn't often a problem. -Djsasso (talk) 22:49, 4 June 2020 (UTC)
Ah yes, great advice. Thanks a lot for the tips. --Infogapp1 (talk) 22:52, 4 June 2020 (UTC)
Btw, about redlinks: I general add redlinks tag for articles that have more than 5 redlinks. I'm guessing it doesn't apply for categories? Like 1298 for example? TIA.--Infogapp1 (talk) 22:56, 4 June 2020 (UTC)
The red links tag is a bit tricky here. On en.wiki you might be more liberal using it because its pretty rare to have a tonne of red links on a page. On simple.wiki on the other hand it is very common to have pages full of red links so using that tag liberally here might end up with a bit of overkill. We only have about 30 or so regular editors so we are always going to have a tonne of red links on many pages for the foreseeable future. Personally I don't use that tag here at all. That isn't to say you can't or shouldn't but you will find you might need to tag almost every page if you are using 5 red links as a criteria on if you should tag. -Djsasso (talk) 23:01, 4 June 2020 (UTC)
I hear you. I'll use it sparingly moving forward where it makes the most sense. Thanks again for the guidance. --Infogapp1 (talk) 23:04, 4 June 2020 (UTC)

┌─────────────────────────────────┘
Hi again. Noticed you've replaced Interwiki {Interwiki copy|url=XXXXXX|title=XXXXX}} notices with Translated notices instead for Harvard Business School. I thought this formatting is mainly if they're taken from non-English Wiki? Would appreciate the clarification as I may need to go through similar pages I've created for uniformity. — Infogapp1 (talk) 18:18, 10 June 2020 (UTC)

This format is for any language, we used to have many different templates to do this but they have all been slowly transitioned over to that one. You have to remember that this is Simple English which in wiki terms is a different language from English. So when you simplify you are translating it to simple english. That template in particular is more for when you bring it over from a site that isn't Wikipedia. For example Wiktionary. It can be used for both, but as I see instances of it I tend to switch them over. You are free to use which ever template you like though. Just you might see someone like me switch it. Either is acceptable. -Djsasso (talk) 18:21, 10 June 2020 (UTC)
Understood. I was initially referred to the Interwiki documentation, which is why I used it in all similar edits I did. I will, however, keep this in mind for similar instances so you don't have to redo them ;) Thanks again for the clarification. — Infogapp1 (talk) 18:26, 10 June 2020 (UTC)
I'm pretty sure I'm not doing it right. Just added the translation notice for PayPal. I see there are two version IDs, which one is first and which one is the other? — Infogapp1 (talk) 20:30, 10 June 2020 (UTC)
The insert version is the version on simple.wikipedia where you added the content. That being said, if the other template is easier for you to use feel free to use it. It isn't required to use this one, its just that some of us tend to be nit picky about small things like this and change it. But I reiterate, either is acceptable. -Djsasso (talk) 12:24, 11 June 2020 (UTC)

Removed a word from your edit at DzongkhaEdit

Hello! Bhutanese is not the national language of Bhutan. It is misleading so I removed it. Bhutanese is the national group. Thank you. StarLightMe (talk) 14:21, 7 June 2020 (UTC)

It is the national group, but it is also an alternate name of the language. Words can have two meanings. -Djsasso (talk) 13:11, 8 June 2020 (UTC)

ThanksEdit

Thanks for fixing that; no idea how I managed to do that. IWI (chat) 16:00, 10 June 2020 (UTC)

revdelEdit

do you have a moment or two? I wanna chat with you about some revdel --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 16:02, 10 June 2020 (UTC)

Go ahead and send an email with the link and I will look at it. -Djsasso (talk) 16:11, 10 June 2020 (UTC)
sent --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 16:15, 10 June 2020 (UTC)
If they asked for it to be hidden I would. But if they haven't asked it isn't required. -Djsasso (talk) 16:23, 10 June 2020 (UTC)
I redacted the signatures though, but I'll just leave everything else as it is. thanks for your time --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 16:24, 10 June 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for turning “External links” into “Other websites”!Edit

I really appreciated the help! One question though: how did you do it so fast? I saw you making like 30 edits a minute... --sithjarjar666 (my contribs | talk to me | email me | see my enwiki profile) 20:18, 23 June 2020 (UTC)

Treefrogs and tree frogsEdit

Hi there, fellow froggy fan. I saw you move several "treefrog" articles to "tree frog." Could you tell me how to access the source you were using for common names? I seem to recall a three-letter acronym starting with A. I don't like to put "tree frog" if all the sources I find use only "treefrog."I tried clicking on ADW in the taxon bar for the West Highland treefrog article but didn't see much about common names there. Darkfrog24 (talk) 20:37, 23 June 2020 (UTC)

HelpEdit

I see you're reverting me a lot. I just returned from an extended wikibreak, so I don't really know where to start. Can you tell me where to start? Thanks, ~Prahlad balaji (t / c) 16:33, 24 June 2020 (UTC)

Start with a topic you have knowledge of. -Djsasso (talk) 16:35, 24 June 2020 (UTC)
Well, I'm mainly an antivandalism patroller on enwiki, but as sithJarJar666 said, this wiki only gets vandalized once an hour. ~Prahlad balaji (t / c) 16:47, 24 June 2020 (UTC)
Yes, we don't have so much as en.wiki. So our need is more with content creation. -Djsasso (talk) 16:48, 24 June 2020 (UTC)
Thanks. I'll try to create pages on plants. ~Prahlad balaji (t / c) 16:50, 24 June 2020 (UTC)

Infobox Finnish MunicipalityEdit

I wanted to add an infobox for Kuhmoinen but it shows me the sub-categories (tax rate, land area, etc), but doesn't seem to load the main one? Is this normal, or probably just a bug? What would be a more apt infobox for such cases? — Infogapp1 (talk) 11:26, 25 June 2020 (UTC)

Looks like it needed a redirect as the spelling was capitalized on the one from en.wiki but not here. -Djsasso (talk) 11:29, 25 June 2020 (UTC)
Cool, thanks. — Infogapp1 (talk) 11:36, 25 June 2020 (UTC)

Reverting multiple changesEdit

It doesn't happen every day, but I had a couple of instances today (e.g. Hysteria and Chemical change) where separate vandals made several edits, making it quite difficult to revert to the previous/last good version. What I do is manually copy that latest good version and make it as a new change. What other methods or tools would you recommend that will make those switch smoother and easier? — Infogapp1 (talk) 13:59, 25 June 2020 (UTC)

If you can't just click undo, one way to do it is go back to the last good version in the history and click on the date for it. It will open the page on that version of the page, at which point you can click edit and it will warn you that you are editing an old version of the page. Then just save it and it will save that version as the new version. -Djsasso (talk) 14:36, 25 June 2020 (UTC)
Oh, that's neat. Will do, thanks! — Infogapp1 (talk) 14:38, 25 June 2020 (UTC)
Unrelated, but I couldn't seem to be able to use 'red links' tag anymore? I wanted to use it for Toray Pan Pacific Open. Or, has it been decided it's no longer needed to use such taggings? — Infogapp1 (talk) 10:45, 26 June 2020 (UTC)
As far as I know it still exists. I will look into it. -Djsasso (talk) 11:27, 26 June 2020 (UTC)
It still does, indeed. I was typing it as separate words when it should just be 1 word. You can take this off your checklist, thanks. — Infogapp1 (talk) 21:15, 26 June 2020 (UTC)

┌─────────────────────────────────┘
Thanks again for leading me towards the right direction about rollbacks. That's quite handy as I didn't realise I can do it with Twinkle. I'm yet to get a hang of the process for proposing to merge a duplicate page. Is there somehow a feature on Twinkle that helps make this the merge proposal just like QD/RfD and the likes that I may be missing? — Infogapp1 (talk) 20:31, 28 June 2020 (UTC) ┌─────────────────────────────────┘
I'm not seeing much media coverage about Decode Entertainment and the fact that it was acquired by DHX Media, IMO, I would like to propose for it to be either redirected or merged as the company that acquired it has more media coverage (despite the current copy being more in the Decode Entertainment article. What's the best way to go about this? Should I go through usual RfD and include my proposal in the comments? Or is there another process I may not be aware of? — Infogapp1 (talk) 18:25, 30 June 2020 (UTC)

ReaganEdit

Hey Djsasso, did you see the red error that appears at the top of the article? --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 00:22, 26 June 2020 (UTC)

Wierd. Some template it uses must have changed. I updated the one it was complaining about. Looks like it's fixed on my phone. Will confirm when I get to a computer in the morning. Djsasso (talk) 02:33, 26 June 2020 (UTC)

My talk pageEdit

Hello Djsasso. Can you explain your change to my talk page? You did not leave change summary. The change that you made is: https://simple.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User_talk:HugoHelp&oldid=7011772 --HugoHelp (talk) 00:13, 30 June 2020 (UTC)

Sorry I meant to leave one. Transcluding that page puts you in a category your talk page shouldn't be in. By all means use the text of that page on your talk page, but transcluding the whole thing is miscategorizing your talk page. -Djsasso (talk) 00:17, 30 June 2020 (UTC)
Ok, thank you. --HugoHelp (talk) 02:29, 30 June 2020 (UTC)

OnestrikeEdit

Should we be adding the WP:ONESTRIKE note on this user's Simple profile? I'm not seeing the account being disruptive in this project [yet]. Instead, s/he seems to be cooperative when given objective feedback, but thought I'd double-check. — Infogapp1 (talk) 16:29, 1 July 2020 (UTC)

Leave that to admins. We generally only mention it if it looks like they are heading towards a block. But really the point of one strike is that there is no warning. We just do it. -Djsasso (talk) 21:49, 1 July 2020 (UTC)
