Why did you remove red links and red link templates?

I noticed that you removed red links and red links templates from articles such as qualia and dissociation (psychology). According to WP:RL, they help Wikipedia grow. The consensus on the talk page agreed that they should be kept. So, why did you remove them? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Paradox Marvin (talkcontribs)

The tags I removed because the articles did not have too many red links. The only red links I removed were in the related pages sections, if the page doesn't exist yet then you shouldn't be putting it in the related pages section. In article text we definitely keep red links. But the purpose of the related pages section is to point you to other existing pages that are related. -Djsasso (talk) 22:48, 3 February 2021 (UTC)Reply
Oh okay I see, that makes sense. Thanks! Paradox Marvin (talk) 15:07, 4 February 2021 (UTC)Reply

Climate of New Mexico

Hey please don't restrict the page of Climate of New Mexico back to New Mexico. I add that page for a more descriptive understanding of how the climate is in New Mexico. Fleestarkotz (talk) 02:04, 4 February 2021 (UTC)Reply

(talk page stalker) @Fleestarkotz: Your changes were very complex and I have reverted them. I'll remind you that this is the Simple English Wikipedia. --IWI (talk) 02:47, 4 February 2021 (UTC)Reply


CM-Public If I can find mass rollback with Twinkle, then I don't need rollback anymore, but there isn't. So hence I have rollback. --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 21:59, 6 February 2021 (UTC)Reply


Thanks for the assist on this. It still is not archiving as I wanted. I have it set to 3 days since the last comment so my talk page should be pretty blank. Can you double-check that for me, please?--PotsdamLamb (talk) 16:59, 11 February 2021 (UTC)Reply

(talk page stalker) @PotsdamLamb: Could it be because of the minthreadsleft parameter? If you don't specify a value, it will leave at least 5 threads, no matter how old they are. --Auntof6 (talk) 20:08, 11 February 2021 (UTC)Reply
@Auntof6: I checked and it’s set to 1. It’s not important really I just like to keep the threads to a minimum. PotsdamLamb (talk) 08:05, 12 February 2021 (UTC)Reply
@PotsdamLamb:No, minthreadstoarchive is set to 1. That's a different parameter. --Auntof6 (talk) 11:17, 12 February 2021 (UTC)Reply
This is likely the issue, I set it on your page to 0 so no threads will be left if they are older than 3 days. You can up that number to however many you would like left at a minimum. -Djsasso (talk) 13:09, 12 February 2021 (UTC)Reply

Talk page archive

Hi, could you please help me. You bot Sassobot is not archiving my posts for more than 3 days on my talk page. Could you please resolve this issue? Also please check my code of archive..DJRC (talk) 08:29, 12 February 2021 (UTC)Reply

(talk page stalker) @TTP1233: Your code seems to be okay. It might be that there was no new line between {{bots|allow=SassoBot}} and the archive configuration, but I wouldn't think that would be the issue. —Belwine💬📜 08:32, 12 February 2021 (UTC)Reply
Maybe...but let's see.DJRC (talk) 08:34, 12 February 2021 (UTC)Reply
(talk page stalker) @TTP1233: It used to be that the archiving code had to be the first thing on the page, but I'm not sure if that's true now. Also, see my note above about the minthreadsleft parameter. You haven't specified a value for that, so the bot will always leave at least 5 threads on the page. --Auntof6 (talk) 11:30, 12 February 2021 (UTC)Reply
Yep this is the issue for you as well. I have set it to zero for you but you can set it higher if you like. -Djsasso (talk) 13:12, 12 February 2021 (UTC)Reply
Thanks Djsasso! PotsdamLamb (talk) 16:04, 12 February 2021 (UTC)Reply
Hey on second thought, it was set to one (just as yours is) so why was it not taken? PotsdamLamb (talk) 18:14, 12 February 2021 (UTC)Reply
As mentioned above by Auntof6 you have a different setting set to 1. Not minthreadsleft. -Djsasso (talk) 18:16, 12 February 2021 (UTC)Reply
Oh, I see I mixed it up with minthreadstoarchive. Thanks again. PotsdamLamb (talk) 18:29, 12 February 2021 (UTC)Reply

Template:Usage of IPA template

Hi, I've seen that you reverted my edit in "Template:Usage of IPA templates". My edit was correct: the word "io" ("I") is written without accent in Italian (adding an accent in that template doesn't change the result in IPA, anyway), and the /i/ is a long vowel so the symbol [ː] has to be added (it's the same as the stressed /o/ in "sono" and /a/ in "Americano"). Please restore my correction, as that line is currently wrong. Thank you! — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

My Pageviews template

Hi Djsasso. My "Pageviews" template on my user talk page doesn't display correctly, like all of the other pageviews templates. What could be the cause? --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 03:10, 14 January 2021 (UTC)Reply

Not working how? Appears to have stats to me. -Djsasso (talk) 12:27, 14 January 2021 (UTC)Reply

Strike Outs

Thank you for striking out their multiple votes! Why was their first one at the top not stricken? Thanks PotsdamLamb (talk) 07:37, 25 February 2021 (UTC)Reply

(talk page stalker) @PotsdamLamb: Because they are allowed to vote once. --IWI (talk) 09:14, 25 February 2021 (UTC)Reply
Because they get one vote, they just don't get multiple. -Djsasso (talk) 11:55, 25 February 2021 (UTC)Reply
@Djsasso and ImprovedWikiImprovement: Not according to 5.6 on the RfD page "Suggestions by users using "sock puppets" (more than one account belonging to the same person) and IP addresses will not be counted." PotsdamLamb (talk) 14:48, 25 February 2021 (UTC)Reply
Yes and as I replied to you in the Rfd. You are reading that sentence wrong. The point of that line is that if you use multiple accounts or IPs to vote they won't count. Not that all IP votes don't count. -Djsasso (talk) 14:51, 25 February 2021 (UTC)Reply
I should probably point out Rfd isn't actually a vote anyways, theoretically there could be zero keep votes and the article could be kept if all the delete votes were not based on policy. Not likely to happen but I want to point out admins will handle this sort of thing usually when they close the discussion but sometimes will with strike them out during the discussion. I think you are a bit too wrapped up in what happens with the Rfd and maybe need to step back a bit and let it play out. -Djsasso (talk) 15:03, 25 February 2021 (UTC)Reply
I didn't mean to imply. It is not just this RfD I have seen it on others as well. I do not remember seeing your statement on that as the IP user deleted a lot of things and faked being other people so I gave up after the restore. I will back off. PotsdamLamb (talk) 15:34, 25 February 2021 (UTC)Reply

Hey Djsasso - the ip user is back with a wall of text again stating the same stuff as in all of their other suggestions. Have a great night! PotsdamLamb (talk) 03:18, 27 February 2021 (UTC)Reply


Hey DJSasso - a couple questions for you. Does SEWP not use recently deceased template? I saw you removed it from an article I put it on earlier today. Secondly, what is the reasoning behind articles like list of nbc shows, list of HBO shows, etc.? Thanks PotsdamLamb (talk) 06:10, 24 February 2021 (UTC)Reply

The purpose of the recently deceased template is to prevent edit conflicts from the rapid editing of the article because someone just passed away and so there is high interest in editing a given article. That is rarely the case here, it can be used here, but unless its a very well known figure it is not likely to serve any purpose and will just get forgotten on the page. List are articles just like any other, if its a notable topic which a list of shows on a major network would be then they get an article. List also serve an additional purpose in being a single location where you get to multiple related articles. -Djsasso (talk) 18:03, 24 February 2021 (UTC)Reply
Got it! Thanks! PotsdamLamb (talk) 04:08, 1 March 2021 (UTC)Reply

Suggestion of Poor edits

User:Djsasso just deleted 3 articles I created, I spent a lot of time working on them. They were made very simple and quite short, however I was more than willing to edit them more in the draftspace. Djsasso could've put them into draft space, but no, they had to erase them and not even notify me. The user reverted one of my edits - but did not mention anything in the edit summary. J.Turner99 (talk) 12:07, 18 March 2021 (UTC)Reply

You did not spend a lot of time working on them. They were copy and pasted from which made them copyright violations. Frankly you are lucky I didn't just block you per WP:ONESTRIKE since you are currently blocked indefinitely at for disruptive editing. -Djsasso (talk) 12:09, 18 March 2021 (UTC)Reply
I'm very lucky indeed. I did spend considerable time on them, please look at the edit history. J.Turner99 (talk) 12:13, 18 March 2021 (UTC)Reply
I'm sorry for jumping the gun, I did not realise that there was no draftspace. Although a notification would have been nice on my talk page. J.Turner99 (talk) 12:22, 18 March 2021 (UTC)Reply

Peyman Keshavarzi

Hello, the esteemed manager of Peyman Keshavarzi has joined the tractor manufacturing team. You can see this in the Persian version as well. I also added the resources, but a user returns them without even looking at the resources. Please take care.-- (talk) 16:30, 18 March 2021 (UTC)Reply

You keep vandalizing the page. The 3-revert rule doesn't apply to vandalism. (I knew looking deeper into rules after my RfA would pay off eventually). ShadowBallX (talk) 16:36, 18 March 2021 (UTC)Reply
I am going to look into whether this is vandalism or not. Please both of you stop for now. -Djsasso (talk) 16:37, 18 March 2021 (UTC)Reply
Fair enough. You probably haven't seen the edits the other user made. ShadowBallX (talk) 16:38, 18 March 2021 (UTC)Reply
@ShadowBallX: The sources do seem to indicate he switched teams. Is there a reason you think it is vandalism? -Djsasso (talk) 16:42, 18 March 2021 (UTC)Reply
When I first checked to make sure it was accurate, I couldn't find anything suggesting the transfer was made. So I assumed it was vandalism, given the history of the page. ShadowBallX (talk) 16:44, 18 March 2021 (UTC)Reply
@ShadowBallX: I am an Iranian user and I am better aware of this issue and I understand the sources better because my language is Persian and I even added valid sources in the editing and my goal was not to sabotage.-- (talk) 16:56, 18 March 2021 (UTC)Reply
I understand that you wanted to help out. I know that probably wasn't your goal, but we have had vandalism on that page by IPs similar to yours, so I immediately thought you were trying to vandalize the page. ShadowBallX (talk) 17:00, 18 March 2021 (UTC)Reply
Please assume good faith, ShadowBallX. You shouldn’t be immediately jumping to negative conclusions purely because they are an anonymous user. I suggest you be more careful when reverting in future. --IWI (talk) 18:23, 18 March 2021 (UTC)Reply


I see you have reverted my moves to more simple names back to more misleading and longer ones. What is the rationale for this? The usual naming convention in reference works like Britannica Kids [1], The Oxford Dictionary of the Christian Church (3 rev. ed.), the Oxford Dictionary of British History (3 ed.), the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, and the Oxford Dictionary of World History (3 ed.) is e.g. "Charles II" not "Charles II of England". For e.g. Charles I the epithet "of England" is not simply uncommon in reliable sources and unnecessary for so famous a king, but actively misleading. Should this not be discussed?

Purge the cache of the page

Hello, Dj, and thank you for offering a solution to the problem I described at Talk:For the Gambia Our Homeland#Wikidata item and interwiki links. Thing is, I don't know what's meant by "purge the cache" of the page. I suppose this isn't the same as refreshing the browser's display, because I recall doing this numerous times (also on similar instances for other pages) with no success. Your guidance is appreciated! Deborahjay (talk) 11:44, 20 March 2021 (UTC)Reply

(talk page stalker) @Deborahjay: Add ?action=purge onto the end of the URL to purge the cache of a page. —Belwine (talk) 11:50, 20 March 2021 (UTC)Reply
WOW!!! I just tried it on a new page here, Tic-tac-toe, and it worked like a charm! Not only had I not known this, our local Wiki women editors' group (founded just after the 2011 Wikimania held in Haifa, meeting biweekly since then and weekly via Zoom during the pandemic) has repeatedly encountered this problem and none of us has tracked down a solution - till now. Thanks, @Belwine:, and blessings to you from the Western Galilee! Deborahjay (talk) 13:00, 20 March 2021 (UTC)Reply
(talk page stalker) @Deborahjay: There are also a couple of settings that give you a quick way to purge the cache of a page. To find them, click on "My settings" at the top of any page. Click on the Gadgets tab, then go to the "Interface settings" section. Then do one or both of the following:
  • Click the checkbox by "Add a "Purge" tab to the top of the page which lets you purge the cache of the page." This will give you a "Purge" link to the top of most pages.
  • Click the checkbox by "Live Clock: Add a UTC clock to the screen." This give you a clock at the upper right corner of most pages. If you click on the clock, the cache of your current page gets purged.
After clicking on one or both of those, click on the "Save" button at the bottom of the page. Then you should see the new options after you exit your settings. HTH. --Auntof6 (talk) 13:14, 20 March 2021 (UTC)Reply
These are wonderfully helpful options, @Auntof6: It's quite likely we don't fully exploit the Gadgets in settings. I'm about to write a mini-tutorial on this and translate it to Hebrew. Thank you for enriching our editing experience! Deborahjay (talk) 18:17, 20 March 2021 (UTC)Reply
@Deborahjay: Yeah I use the clock option that Auntof6 mentions. That way you just click the clock and it does it for you. -Djsasso (talk) 18:46, 22 March 2021 (UTC)Reply
Mmhmm, that clock is one slick gadget - but I'm having a tough time finding it in other projects. The Hebrew WP doesn't seem to offer the same options, certainly not by identifiable names. Next I'll try setting "global preferences." At least I'm learning about options of which I hadn't previously been aware. Cheers! -- Deborahjay (talk) 18:53, 22 March 2021 (UTC)Reply

Why were my changes reported? The John Wilkes Booth page is obviously way too detailed and needs to be shortened as well as simplified.

Category:Asian foods

Hello, Dj! I see you did a move to rename "Category:Asian cuisine" to the simpler English "foods" - which I'd had in mind as a #REDIRECT, but I see your point. NOW my query for you: did the move take care of the six subcategories and three pages to which I added the category name as I'd originally planned, or do they need manual correction (even by HotCat, since I don't see Cat-a-lot in Gadgets here). How to proceed? Cheers! -- Deborahjay (talk) 11:36, 25 March 2021 (UTC)Reply

Already fixed all the pages. Yeah foods is simplier. It also matched another category that already existed which I noticed once I created the category for you which is why I moved it. -Djsasso (talk) 11:37, 25 March 2021 (UTC)Reply

@Djsasso: Hello! Please don't remove any Meitei transliterations from the pages. Because they are Meitei related pages. Because they must stay, if you think my deed is wrong, then please see all those Greek and Arab related pages, they also have their respective transliterations. Haoreima (talk) 11:38, 26 March 2021 (UTC)Reply

And please reply me. I want to know your opinions. Haoreima (talk) 11:40, 26 March 2021 (UTC)Reply

The problem isn't that you are using transliterations it is that you are are using Indic scripts which are not allowed in the lead of an article or in infoboxes. Please see WP:INDSCRIPT. -Djsasso (talk) 11:41, 26 March 2021 (UTC)Reply

@Djsasso: I don't think Meitei script is Indic. It is independent from the mainland Indian culture. Haoreima (talk) 11:51, 26 March 2021 (UTC)Reply

Besides, for what purpose is Template:Lang-mni made if Meitei transliterations are not allowed to be used. Haoreima (talk) 11:52, 26 March 2021 (UTC)Reply

@Djsasso: Please revert your own edits kindly. It takes me a lot of time to add but removing is easy. So, please help me. Haoreima (talk) 11:56, 26 March 2021 (UTC)Reply

I am not sure that you are correct at this point. I will look further into it, but as far as I can tell they are indic. If I can find evidence they are not I will put them back. However, I would suggest not adding any more at this point. -Djsasso (talk) 12:00, 26 March 2021 (UTC)Reply
For example it is specifically listed on en:Brahmic scripts#Comparison as one of the major Indic scripts. -Djsasso (talk) 12:02, 26 March 2021 (UTC)Reply

@Djsasso: But what is the purpose of Template:lang-mni? And, you know in English Wikipedia, all the Hindu related articles use Sanskrit transliterations. No admins remove it from the last few decades. What do you think? Haoreima (talk) 12:07, 26 March 2021 (UTC)Reply

If you go to the first page I linked to in my first comment it explains that there are certain pages that they can be used on, such as pages about the scripts themselves which is where you could use a template like that. -Djsasso (talk) 12:08, 26 March 2021 (UTC)Reply

@Djsasso: What about en:Durga? Haoreima (talk) 12:09, 26 March 2021 (UTC)Reply

(talk page stalker) It is a script for a sino-Tibetan language that is pretty different to the Indo-European languages spoken in the rest of Northern India, which may explain the confusion. It is however related to the scripts used in the rest of India, as it is derived from the Brahmi script (like Devanagari is). There are a number of reasons why Indic scripts are not supposed to be used in the lead, which can be read about in the link above. --IWI (talk) 12:10, 26 March 2021 (UTC)Reply

@Djsasso: Seems like some politics is going on in Wikipedia unless Sanskrit transliterations are not removed from Hindu related pages. For example en:Durga in particular. For Meitei related pages, only Meitei transliterations are added. So, what's need for removal if those Hindu related pages are not affected? Haoreima (talk) 12:13, 26 March 2021 (UTC)Reply

Sanskrit is also an Indic script. Haoreima (talk) 12:15, 26 March 2021 (UTC)Reply

It specifically states that they can be used on those religious articles. --IWI (talk) 12:16, 26 March 2021 (UTC)Reply
The biggest difference is that Sanskrit characters appear on most if not all browers. Many other indic scripts (which includes Meitei) do not, so they just appear as blocks which cannot be read by people on the page. -Djsasso (talk) 12:20, 26 March 2021 (UTC)Reply

@ImprovedWikiImprovment and Djsasso: Then, Meitei transliterations are added on topics related to Meitei religion. Same case. Haoreima (talk) 12:17, 26 March 2021 (UTC)Reply

Not sure about that. It only mentions Hinduism and Buddhism on the page, though it may be extended to others; not sure. You have to remember that Sanskrit is a language closely linked to these religions and their scripts. --IWI (talk) 12:20, 26 March 2021 (UTC)Reply

@ImprovedWikiImprovment and Djsasso: Once more, Meitei transliterations are added only on Meitei topics. And it's culture is not mingled with any confusing Mainland Indian culture. Besides, The Wikipedia rule page says transliterations can be added through template "lang" only to the topic of the language, for example Meitei script for Meitei topics. Haoreima (talk) 12:20, 26 March 2021 (UTC)Reply

That means specifically an article about the language itself. -Djsasso (talk) 12:21, 26 March 2021 (UTC)Reply

@ImprovedWikiImprovment: Remember Meitei religion is independent from Hinduism. Haoreima (talk) 12:22, 26 March 2021 (UTC)Reply

@ImprovedWikiImprovment and Djsasso: Ok, you have a favourtism towards Sanskrit, then see en:Bengal uses Bengali script, both in heading as well as infobox. No one remove it from many decades. Bengali script is also a major Indic script. And the page isn't related to any religion. Haoreima (talk) 12:26, 26 March 2021 (UTC)Reply

It is not favoritism. If you look at the various discussions linked to from the link above it will explain why there are issues with many/most indic scripts. They are certainly treated differently, I do not deny that. But it is because many of them cause a number of issues. One of which I mentioned above, Meitei characters do not show up on most computers and just look like blocks so they are unreadable by most people. Whereas Bengali characters do show up on most browsers so are readable and thus can be verified whereas for most indic scripts they cannot be verified. -Djsasso (talk) 12:29, 26 March 2021 (UTC)Reply

@Djsasso: what do you mean? Meitei language even has its own Meitei Wikipedia. What about that? Will people be unable to operate this Wikipedia? Haoreima (talk) 12:32, 26 March 2021 (UTC)Reply

No, I just mean that by default most browsers cannot see the Meitei characters in most of the world. For example when I look a your articles I just see squares where the characters should be. Remember we are on Simple English Wikipedia where most people on it will not have the ability to see them, thus for us we can't easily verify that what you have put there is correct. Thus there were many discussions on the topic and they came to the conclusion that they cannot be used in the lead and in infoboxes. The others you have mentioned can be seen by people who edit English Wikipedia so we can go and make sure that editors aren't putting incorrect information. -Djsasso (talk) 12:35, 26 March 2021 (UTC)Reply

@Djsasso: Until this discussion is not over, don't remove any transliterations further. I have much further to tell you. Haoreima (talk) 12:37, 26 March 2021 (UTC)Reply

@Djsasso: Most of the world? Do you have computers of the entire world? Whenever I surf anything in Google search with Meitei script, which were already written in English Wikipedia article, in lead, results of course, came, out accurately.

Remember, the default may be either due to a malfunction in your computer or for a particular reason with a few computers. For this, we can not compensate the culture of an entire ethnicity. Haoreima (talk) 12:42, 26 March 2021 (UTC)Reply

That is because your computer has Meitei script installed so you can see them. I don't need to have everyone computer in the world to know what is installed by default. -Djsasso (talk) 12:43, 26 March 2021 (UTC)Reply

@Djsasso: Absolutely not! As I have already told you, I have experimented in many computers, they all came out accurate results. No bugs happen. Remember, Meitei script is an internationally recognized script, it has Unicode also. So, no matter for further discussion. Please reconcile with me. Haoreima (talk) 12:47, 26 March 2021 (UTC)Reply

I think you are misunderstanding here. Computers in India likely will have these scripts installed as default. This is not the case here in Europe, or in the Americas. We cater to a global audience, thus these characters should be avoided in the lead. --IWI (talk) 12:51, 26 March 2021 (UTC)Reply

@ImprovedWikiImprovment and Djsasso: Then, you mean every Meitei Wikipedia articles will appear blank in Europe? Meitei Wikipedia has code mni, recheck yourself. Haoreima (talk) 12:55, 26 March 2021 (UTC)Reply

Yes, that is exactly what happens when you go to the Meitei Wikipedia. It is filled with repeating squares and no characters. This isn't something strange, it is a well known thing. -Djsasso (talk) 13:17, 26 March 2021 (UTC)Reply

@Djsasso: In that case, it's your personal case. Your personal case must not affect others. Even in India, many of your European or American native languages may appear blank. But at least, people will know there's something because of the presence of () brackets. Don't affect others. Reconcile here. Haoreima (talk) 13:33, 26 March 2021 (UTC)Reply

If anything supported by Wikipedia forum gets bug with you, don't mess up. Leave it simply. Haoreima (talk) 13:34, 26 March 2021 (UTC)Reply

It isn't a personal issue, it affects most of the audience of this wiki. We are an English based wiki. Just like Metei Wikipedia doesn't cater to English speakers. It has been discussed many times as you can see from the link above which is how it ended up being added to the Manual of Style. -Djsasso (talk) 13:37, 26 March 2021 (UTC)Reply
He's right, anything written in Meitei comes out here as a string of empty boxes. And Sanskrit is an Indo-European language, which Meitei is not. That is the reason it is readable on our screens. Macdonald-ross (talk) 13:38, 26 March 2021 (UTC)Reply

@ImprovedWikiImprovment: Thank🙏💕 you, for counseling me. I have been too much saddened😔😔😔 but you encourage me. 😃😃👍 Haoreima (talk) 03:32, 27 March 2021 (UTC)Reply

@Macdonald-ross, ImprovedWikiImprovment, and Djsasso: Well, lastly, let me speak without any fear from higher powers of admins.

  1. First, the reason for removal of transliterations was said to be because of INDIC SCRIPT policy.
  2. Secondly, religion based issues, though it's INDIC SCRIPT, Hinduism and Buddhism related contents can use transliterations.
  3. Thirdly, Meitei script appears as box box in your screens.

All the reasons are not said at one time. But only after one reason was about to be reconciled by my explanations, another new reason aroused. If I say that whether the Bengali script appears clearly to your screens or not, it's also an INDIC script and is continuously used in non religious contents, what new reasons are you going to give me? I want to know this! In fact, I am extremely traumatized! 😔😔😔😔 Haoreima (talk) 09:58, 27 March 2021 (UTC)Reply

Please don't merge Page Kakching garden to Kakching. The references in the Kakching garden are all reliable and notable, so no need to depend or merge in another page. This is not general English Wikipedia, where Kakching page has a section Kakching garden. But still, there, it's not a redirect.

Most of the links you had on the article were just travel list information or blogs which do not show notability.

Question regarding the use of 'Japan Stub'

On the article daimyo, there is a use of the 'Japan Stub', however this article is taking about people, so I'm a bit confused as to whether this stub tag should be used. Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 00:38, 9 April 2021 (UTC)Reply

That stub is for anything related to Japan. That article is about rulers in Japan. -Djsasso (talk) 10:48, 9 April 2021 (UTC)Reply
I thought it cannot be used for people --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 20:18, 10 April 2021 (UTC)Reply
(talk page stalker) I'm assuming the people exception is for biographies of living or dead people instead of rulers from hundreds of years ago, who weren't really a person/group of people. For example, duke is a role, not a person.--Belwine (talk) 20:26, 10 April 2021 (UTC)Reply
True, True. I was not think properly ;P --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 20:31, 10 April 2021 (UTC)Reply
If you are referring to the comment on Wikipedia:Simple Stub Project, it just says to not use it on Japan Sports Biographies because there is a specific stub for it. Any other is fine. -Djsasso (talk) 12:46, 14 April 2021 (UTC)Reply
Oh, Twinkle was the one which said Japan-Stub is not for people --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 01:44, 15 April 2021 (UTC)Reply
Likely on there like that because we typically used to say only use one or two stubs on a page and Template:bio-stub existed which would likely get worked on more than japan stub. But yeah don't worry about that. To be honest stubs are mostly deprecated anyway so aren't worth worrying about. -Djsasso (talk) 14:39, 15 April 2021 (UTC)Reply

Block of User:John VIII

Hello Djsasso.

I am currently typing this from an alt since I lost the password to appeal on my main.

The reason I used 2 accounts is because I forgot both passwords and kept them logged in with John VIII on mobile and MartinLutheran on PC, I did not intend to break the rules of the site and I wanted to be a constructive editor, however I was blocked and now I understand why, if I’m ever unbanned I will only use 1 of the accounts and stop using the other to follow the rules.

Yes that one could go back I guess. I didn't notice it was there. But I think 9 different tags on it is ridiculous. Generally on this wiki we try to keep the tags to the minimum as they tend to harm the wiki more than they help in that things are sometimes obvious that don't need a tag telling you so the tag itself becomes an issue on the page. -Djsasso (talk) 15:43, 16 April 2021 (UTC)Reply

(talk page stalker) I can't see anything in the Wikipedia:Deletion policy that says that. Whilst Wikipedia:Talk page says "Do not delete discussions", these are not discussions about improving the article, they are just spam/vandalism. --Ferien (talk) 15:56, 16 April 2021 (UTC)Reply
Once you switched it to having a talk page header on it, it was edited by someone other than the vandal and thus a valid talk page. -Djsasso (talk) 15:57, 16 April 2021 (UTC)Reply
So if I did not replace the content with the talk page header, then it would be eligible for deletion, correct? --Ferien (talk) 15:59, 16 April 2021 (UTC)Reply
Yes, but it still likely wouldn't be. The whole reason we switch to the talk page header on Simple Wikipedia on talk pages that are vandalized are so admins don't have to delete them. While you won't find that codified it is how we typically operate. -Djsasso (talk) 16:00, 16 April 2021 (UTC)Reply
Hmm, ok, I disagree with that idea because as there is no point of the page being there, it just has the talk header and the only thing happening on the page is an edit war. Maybe we need to reconsider how we work with talk pages. I think that deleting them is a lot better because the talk page is likely not going to be used for anything else. --Ferien (talk) 16:13, 16 April 2021 (UTC)Reply
There was a community discussion about it a long time ago that the consensus of was that talk page headers are more helpful than a note that the talk page had been deleted. -Djsasso (talk) 16:14, 16 April 2021 (UTC)Reply
I deleted it because it ends disruption and there is no editorial reason to keep purely vandalism content. With this particular vandal, it seems to prevent having to protect the page and have a massive edit war that can last months. I stand by my action from this standpoint; yes ordinary vandalism can just be replaced with a header. --IWI (talk) 22:20, 22 April 2021 (UTC)Reply

I think he just patrolling them afterwards anyways, see the notice on his talkpage from Auntof6. However, I don't 100% know for sure. I just find it strange they use mutiple IPs.

So essentially you incorrectly warned a newish editor twice, as an admin that kind of thing is highly likely to chase a user away from the wiki which is a very bad thing on this wiki where we need more editors. -Djsasso (talk) 16:33, 28 May 2021 (UTC)Reply
1) Show me examples of "just plain incorrect edits with bad edits"
2) I just saw your post with the link for the plural, as I stated thank you and I striked out my comment.
3) I saw you just completely wiped out the Names for ordinal numbers which removed my section headings and put an error back into the page. 100 is not one-hundredth as an ordinal number (it is actually 0.01). It is used in fractional parts and such. Why did you revert the entire thing?
4) I am assuming you mean the BLP notice? The article was created and had the sentence " one of the pioneers of the death metal genre" which requires a source, since it is a BLP. It was not in there. Therefore I was correct in my placement of the notice as it has the links to what needs to be included in BLP articles.
5) You did not answer the question as to why you took the project I was working on to learn more about things here and made it your own and ran it through your script/bot? It was only being worked on by me until I publicly put it out there at the request of Auntof6. I feel that requires an explanation as it was something I was working on.
I look forward to your timely reponse. PotsdamLamb (talk) 20:26, 28 May 2021 (UTC)Reply
I reverted a lot of bad edits to that page done by IPs a few days ago. One hundredth is how it is written in ordinal numbers. For example you write "I finished the race in one hundredth place." You do not write "I finished the race in one hundred place." It even explains why it is that way further down the page and how to write it. Since you want an example other than the warnings, this is another good example. As for the BLP notice, yes BLPs should have sources, but if the statement is not damaging to the subject of the article it is not something to warn a user about, especially since the warning mentions it being removed and archived when it was in fact was not. Don't use templated messages if they don't actually say what you are trying to say. I am not going to comment on "stealing" your project again since I have commented on it elsewhere. Suffice it to say I have been clearing that category for over a month now, long before you choose to work on it, I was the one that even put the articles in there because I changed the template that filled it up so I could see where errors were. -Djsasso (talk) 22:37, 28 May 2021 (UTC)Reply
There have been a lot of changes by numerous IPs and a lot of people have been reverting them, so I feel you on that one. That is a small minor one, that doesn't amount to frequently when you only give one example for today, especially considering you made the statement 18 days ago (wiki time). The warning template was the closest I could use. If we had a single issue (which I do not think exists) template that kinda matches uwbiog1 but not saying libel or anything, just that it needs to have reliable sources would be beneficial. I use twinkle due to a disability and pretty much only have one full hand and a thumb. So I find this approach advantageous to me, because it would take me too long to type this all out. With the 100th it could be written in either concept, so maybe add an example to the article that shows both ways of using it? I already thanked you and acknowledged it as far as your script. I am open to other suggestions on these issues. PotsdamLamb (talk) 22:51, 28 May 2021 (UTC)Reply

putting hyphens between words access & date

For what reason do you put a hyphen between words access and date in certain articles on Simple English Wikipedia? Angela Kate Maureen 16:39, 28 May 2021 (UTC)Reply

Because the templates wants them to have access-date as that is the correct name of the parameter. accessdate is no longer used. -Djsasso (talk) 16:41, 28 May 2021 (UTC)Reply
(talk page stalker) Oops, I've been doing it wrong for like 6 months. Didn't realize it had changed. Thanks for the heads up. --Gordonrox24 | Talk 16:48, 28 May 2021 (UTC)Reply
@Gordonrox24: Yeah I forget when the exact change happened, they still work at this point but have been deprecated. They end up in an error category if they are used so that they can be fixed, its not the biggest deal. -Djsasso (talk) 16:50, 28 May 2021 (UTC)Reply
