September 2017Edit

  Welcome to Wikipedia. Everyone is welcome to make changes to the encyclopedia. However, please do not add promotional material to articles or other Wikipedia pages, as you did to Urban Massage Ltd. Advertising and using Wikipedia to promote a product or point of view is discouraged. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about Wikipedia. Thank you. Auntof6 (talk) 18:57, 14 September 2017 (UTC)


First, thank you for adding information to new pages. It makes checking the pages easier. I only noticed one header that you added so far, but wanted to let you know we label some differently. We use Other pages instead of See also. And we use Other websites instead of External links. I hope to see you keep making helpful changes here! Thanks! --Tbennert (talk) 03:58, 19 September 2017 (UTC)

Standard headings on Simple English WikipediaEdit

Hello, Gay Yong Hernandez. Thank you for your changes here. I noticed this change, where you changed the heading "See also" to "Other pages". The heading used here for that is actually "Related pages"; we don't use "Other pages" for anything. If you have made the same change elsewhere, please change those to use our standard heading. If you have any questions about this, feel free to ask. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 19:33, 17 March 2018 (UTC)

@Auntof6: I have also inserted the header Other pages, because I vaguely remembered the topic mentioned by User:Tbennert. Is there a page on Simple that defines standard headings? Thank in advance, Ottawahitech (talk) 20:09, 13 April 2019 (UTC)
@Ottawahitech: The two specific ones that are different here are documented in the manual of style, at Wikipedia:Manual of Style#Related pages (Related pages) and Wikipedia:Manual of Style#List of links at the end of an article (Other websites). --Auntof6 (talk) 21:32, 13 April 2019 (UTC)

Share your experience and feedback as a Wikimedian in this global surveyEdit

Words in the Basic English vocabularyEdit

Note that words such as 'blue' are in the Basic English wordlists, and so do not need linking. We assume, as a matter of policy, that our readers are familiar with those words. The wiki has several wordlists: the word 'blue' is in the most basic list of all: the original 850 words: Wikipedia:Basic English alphabetical wordlist. There is a combined Simple English wordlist which is perhaps better for science. Macdonald-ross (talk) 20:33, 30 March 2018 (UTC)

No need to fix all the categories immediately if you don't want to. The bot will pick them up once the cooldown period expires. -DJSasso (talk) 14:54, 8 July 2019 (UTC)

July 2019Edit

  Hello! Thank you for creating Category:2004 disestablishments in Switzerland. However, we normally need at least three pages in a category before it is created. Because categories are a way to group together similar articles, there is no need to create a new category for just one or two articles. If you think there might be more pages to add to the new category, please add them now. Thank you. Auntof6 (talk) 02:15, 15 July 2019 (UTC)

Creating stubs from ip?Edit

Hi, Someone pointed out elsewhere (sorry I can't remember where) that maybe you were creating lots of places from an ip like this. Is that you? If it isn't, I am very sorry for bothering you.

If it is you, can I ask you a couple of favors? Villages, towns, cities, municipalities, communes etc. are all "in" places. That is simpler than "of" and used more commonly in English. It would really help to use the word "in".

Also, in English word order "district" comes after the name:

  • "Nyon district" not "district Nyon"
  • "the district of Nyon" is also OK, but less simple

And, again, if that is not you, I am very sorry! --Gotanda (talk) 03:59, 13 October 2019 (UTC)

Just checking back, if this [1] is you making Swiss muni stubs and Oklahoma town stubs, please have a look. Cities, towns, municipalities are all in places. Many of these stubs use of repeatedly to mean serve two or more functions in the same sentence. Using in is simplper and often the "of" is not needed. Thanks, --Gotanda (talk) 23:55, 3 November 2019 (UTC)
Ok, this one is not from ip, it is clearly from you. [2]. Can you tell me why you continue to to use "of" and not "in" for these articles? In is more specific. It is direct and simple. "Of" can mean many things. In some of these stubs you are creating t serves more than one function. If there is a clear reason, please let me know. Once in a while it seems like you do use "in," so I'd like to ask you to be more consistent about this. See also the towns in Oklahoma etc. Looking forward to your thoughts. --Gotanda (talk) 02:53, 11 November 2019 (UTC)

Patrolling categoriesEdit

I noticed that you patrolled Category:Non-vascular plants. That category doesn't meet our requirements, because it has only two entries in it. If you are going to patrol such categories, you need to tag them with {{popcat}} and leave a notice on the creator's talk page letting them know that we require at least three entries. If you have any questions about this, feel free to let me know. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 10:09, 13 January 2020 (UTC)

Editing from IP 2A02:21B0:644C:609A:5D44:995A:3D4B:7FFB ??Edit

Hello Gay Yong Hernandez, I understand that you sometimes use IP to create the large number of new place stubs. If this is you, please change the language a bit to make it simpler. If it is not you, I apologize for taking up your time.

Please use "in" for cities, towns, and villages not "of" when creating stubs You are making a lot of place stubs. Please make them a bit better. Suggestion:

  • This: El Dara is a village in Illinois in the United States. (This is simpler because in describes the relationship clearly with no other possible relationship.)
  • Not this: El Dara is a village of Illinois in the United States. (This is not common usage. It is also less simple and less clear because "of" can describe many relationship between people and places.)

You use "in" sometimes so I know that you are aware of this usage. Thank you, --Gotanda (talk) 23:13, 23 March 2020 (UTC)

IP editingEdit

Hi. There are IPs making very similar changes to yours at very similar times, such as 2A02:21B0:644D:D391:3CD5:AB74:E005:ABBE. Assuming this is you (as Gotanda has noted above previously), could I ask why you do this? Preferably you'd always make changes from this account. Thanks, Vermont (talk) 21:56, 20 May 2020 (UTC)

Camargo, IllinoisEdit

So far, it appears that many attempts to contact you by fellow editors have been futile. However, your edit to Camargo, Illinois was noticed, in which I moved an image to the right (as it makes more sense there due to WP:MOS and to not breaking text, but it was immediately moved by you to the left again. Is there any possible comments for this change? Naleksuh (talk) 08:28, 6 July 2020 (UTC)

Okay, I don't know why this thing isn't showing up. Thanks for adding all those links in the Litoria articles. In lieu of a pretty blue barnstar to look at, I shall give you a funny song to listen to. Darkfrog24 (talk) 16:49, 7 July 2020 (UTC)


The city belongs to the mesoregion of Jequitinhonha and to the microregion of Almenara.

Can I add that text? Eng Wikipedia should be okay? Maybe someone can rewrite? In own words? Ty Smears1475 (talk) 20:24, 7 July 2020 (UTC)


Thanks for your recent work on categorizing -- it's much appreciated.

I added a couple of categories to Liberal Party of Israel, which you categorized. The most important thing about that article is that it's a political party in Israel, but you added only categories related to the years of establishment and disestablishment. It's good to add those -- we could probably use that on many other articles -- but it's important to recognize what an article is actually about. If you have any questions about this, feel free to ask. --Auntof6 (talk) 17:57, 22 July 2020 (UTC)

Oxide & Neutrino is not a boy bandEdit

Hi, Gay Yong Hernandez. I removed the boy band category from this article. A boy band is not just a musical group whose members are all male. You might want to look at Boy band to understand what makes a group a boy band. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 07:36, 12 September 2020 (UTC)

Shades of color categoriesEdit

Hey, thanks for connecting all those new categories I created to Wikidata. When I finished what I was working on, I went to take care of that and found them done already! A heads-up would have been welcome, but the important thing is that they're done. :) --Auntof6 (talk) 10:47, 25 September 2020 (UTC)

Patrolling article Asian Handball FederationEdit

I was looking at this article and saw that it had several categories specified that we don't have here. I found that you patrolled it on 4 September 2020 at 15:40. It should not have been patrolled without either fixing the categories or tagging the article as needing attention on the categories. Patrolling articles doesn't mean just clicking on the link to mark them as patrolled. It means looking at the page to make sure it's in good shape, and either fixing things that need fixing or at least tagging the page as needing attention. Please be sure to do that when you patrol.

I have fixed the categories, but you can look in the history to see what was there. If you have any questions about this, feel free to ask. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 08:47, 4 October 2020 (UTC)

IP editingEdit

Hi. Please refrain from using IPs to create pages and then filling it up with this account. This creates unnecessary clutter in Special:Logs/patrol and makes it difficult for users to patrol the recent changes page. Thanks. --Minorax (talk) 13:55, 7 October 2020 (UTC)


Every time I put a certain birth category next to the Category:Living people, it gets changed and relocated to the first category. Why is that? For example, in Skee-Lo, Category:1975 births was moved to the first area. Why? Angela Kate Maureen 14:53, 7 October 2020 (UTC)

BOT - Switzerland on pl.wikiEdit

Hi! I've noticed that you created many stubs on pl.wiki using your bot. They lacked some good sources, but I believe that I could make it work using reliable information. Would you share your bot code with me? Thanks! Nadzik (talk) 12:34, 8 October 2020 (UTC)

Hi! User:Thegooduser, I am aware of that. I have a bot flag on multiple wikis (m:User:NadzikBOT), and ofc I would get approval before starting such process. Cheers! Nadzik (talk) 07:51, 9 October 2020 (UTC)


Hi Gay Yong Hernandez, I'm sorry to bother you, but as you can see, there is a discussion on Simple Talk taking place about you. I just wanted to let you know that if you decide to participate in that discussion now, it's going to be a lot easier for you and the community, if you choose not to, all I can say, is it might make things harder for you in the end. I'm not pressuring you into the discussion, and the community and I cannot force you to participate. I just wanted to let you know, and give you the chance, to participate now, while the discussion is still fairly new. Thank you. --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 21:55, 11 October 2020 (UTC)

Möglicher Block...Edit

Hallo Gay Yong Hernandez, Ich schreibe dir auf Deutsch, weil du das gemäss deiner Userseite verstehst. Das Problem ist das folgende:

  • Es gibt eine Reihe von IP Adressen (zb. 2A02:21B0:644D:D391:3CD5:AB74:E005:ABBE), welche (möglicherweise automatisiert, d.h. als "bot") Stubs erstellen. Im Fall der genannten IP Adresse, für französische Gemeinden, etwa ein Edit alle drei Minuten.
  • Diese Wikipedia hat eine Policy (hier), dass solche Bots bewilligt werden müssen; der Antrag kann auf dieser Seite gestellt weden.

In der Regel ist es kein Problem, einen neuen Bot bewilligen zu lassen. Es gibt auf Simple talk eine Diskussion (hier), welche dazu führen könnte, dass diese IPs (und evtl. auch dein User account) blockiert werden. Da ich, und viele andere Editoren dieser Wikipedia dich jedoch schätzen, wollen wir einen Block nach Möglichkeit vermeiden. Ich denke daher, es wäre gut, auf der Seite oben einen Antrag für den Bot zu stellen; wenn er bewilligt wird, kannst du dir ein neues Konto für den Bot einrichten. Mit dem entsprechenden Flag heisst das auch, dass für den Bot mehr Edits möglich sind. Zögere nicht, mich bei Fragen zu kontaktieren. Schöne Grüsse --Eptalon (talk) 09:10, 16 October 2020 (UTC)

Summary for the non-German speakers: I told the editor that some IP edits are likely automated, that automated edits ("bots") need to be approved; that there is a discussion on Simple Talk which could result in a block. To avoid that the bot can be discussed and approved at the appropriate page. --Eptalon (talk) 09:10, 16 October 2020 (UTC)
Hello, can you just participate in the discussion. Or here is alright. I really hope to hear from you as you even fixed some of my pages.   Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 13:17, 17 October 2020 (UTC)
  In light of the lack of clarification from you about the article creations, I have blocked your IP address(es) for apparent unauthorized usage of a bot/script to create stub articles. Please feel free to contact me for more information. Instructions for emailing other editors can be found at Wikipedia:Emailing users. Chenzw  Talk  03:26, 19 October 2020 (UTC)
