Hi, you tried to delete my page and it is a real page.


The pronunciation description you removed was from the author himself. Kdammers (talk) 03:59, 29 March 2021 (UTC)[]

Hi there, @Kdammers:, Can you please point me to what I've removed? I'm a little unsure what you're telling me about. Thanks--Gordonrox24 | Talk 02:38, 1 April 2021 (UTC)[]
Pawel Huelle: "2021-02-28T07:24:26‎ Gordonrox24 talk changes‎ 3,277 bytes −142‎ removed odd pronunciation section. If anybody wants to redo that properly, go for it. undothank" Kdammers (talk) 05:12, 1 April 2021 (UTC)[]
Ah ok thanks for that, @Kdammers: . When it comes to how pronunciation should be written, we need to follow the Wikipedia Manual of Style which tells us pronunciation should be written using The International Phonetic Alphabet. So if we want, we can write it out correctly and re-add it to the article. --Gordonrox24 | Talk 20:14, 1 April 2021 (UTC)[]


If an RFD closes with no arguments for either keep, delete, etc. It is up to the closing admin to decide if the deletion rationale is valid? Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 00:46, 15 April 2021 (UTC)[]

Hi! There are probably a few schools of thought out there. In my opinion, if there are no comments for any outcome, the request should simply be extended another week to allow for people to comment. That's what I would do, as there really isn't a rush. That being said, it has in the past really been up to admin's discretion. It's not a vote, so if the nomination is accurate and nobody says otherwise, it could be safely assumed it's uncontroversial enough in the eyes of the community to move forward with the delete. I suspect most admins will have their own idea of what is best in this situation. I'm not overly attached to any one method here, but I think I'd tend to just extend the discussion. --Gordonrox24 | Talk 00:56, 15 April 2021 (UTC)[]
@つがる: If there are no votes at all then it gets deleted with what is called a soft delete. On Simple Wikipedia our Rfd also acts like Prod does on en.wikipedia. So basically it gets deleted but if someone later comes along and objects to the deletion then it immediately gets restored. -Djsasso (talk) 11:31, 16 April 2021 (UTC)[]
Thanks for the info, Gordonrox24, and Djsasso --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 20:14, 17 April 2021 (UTC)[]

Good workEdit

Dear Gordonrox,

Thanks for going through the vandalism reports and correcting it!

about the rollback here. Rollback on mobile is annoying, I was just reverting my accidental rollback... --Ferien (talk) 16:55, 4 May 2021 (UTC)[]

No worries. Thanks! --Gordonrox24 | Talk 18:30, 4 May 2021 (UTC)[]


Yes, it's very interesting how some of the early ideas have faded. If we have a problem now, it is getting new ideas in. We're much tougher now on dishing out stars for articles. We don't have WikiProjects, and "projects" based on users' subpages have not prospered. I suppose with a young, volatile, readership that's to be expected. Macdonald-ross (talk) 08:44, 5 May 2021 (UTC)[]

That may be true. To be honest I wasn't thinking that deeply about it. I still have the stars permanently saved in my talk page archives, so storing them a 2nd time doesn't make sense anymore. In general they are still valuable tools especially for editor retention.--Gordonrox24 | Talk 14:29, 5 May 2021 (UTC)[]


1) You beat me to the 1st QD tag (Are you a bot) 2) It should be G3 3) Please don't QD Wikipedia :P Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 00:29, 12 May 2021 (UTC)[]

Oops got my letters mixed up ;) --Gordonrox24 | Talk 00:30, 12 May 2021 (UTC)[]
Imagine doing that in Huggle, presses Q by accident (Q is revert vandalism) on a good-faith edit, the editor "WHY THE (word) DID I GET THIS (Angry Rantings)" lol --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 00:32, 12 May 2021 (UTC)[]

Thanks for adding the source! Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 01:26, 20 May 2021 (UTC)[]

I'll see if I can't work it into the article somewhere properly as well. Thanks. --Gordonrox24 | Talk

Birmal Hembram article not removeEdit

Birmal Hembram article not remove because this person is a notable .He is santali writter . Notable link :

See this and after take it decision. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2409:4061:2089:499F:0:0:3DC:8A5 (talkcontribs)

Hi there. I'm not sure which page you're talking about. Can you send me a link to the article?--Gordonrox24 | Talk 21:28, 22 May 2021 (UTC)[]

Voting at RfDEdit

Hey Gordonrox24 - When you do your votes at the RfD, can you follow the guidelines on how to vote, please? It is easier to calculate and not have to look through all of the texts (or in some cases encyclopedias of text) to see what others think. If you need any help on the proper codes and placement, please let me know and I will be happy to show you. Thanks! PotsdamLamb (talk) 18:53, 22 May 2021 (UTC)[]

Uhhh.... What? I've got no clue what you're talking about. The guidelines for RfD are short, and rather clear, and I always follow all of them. RfDs are not a vote, they are a discussion. Having to read what people think is how the whole system works.--Gordonrox24 | Talk 21:26, 22 May 2021 (UTC)[]
You didn’t ping me so I didn’t know you posted. If you look at the others, even admins, post the vote in the beginning. There is a tool that calculates all of them up. While an RfD is not a vote adding that at the beginning does help out a lot and yes the comments after it get read too. PotsdamLamb (talk) 01:01, 24 May 2021 (UTC)[]
I have nearly 2,000 deletes on this wikipedia, many of them RfD closures, and I've never had to use a tool to help me read the discussion. RfDs here, in general, only get a small handful of comments. Some get none. Templates look pretty, but they're by no means a requirement, and I personally dislike them. If working your delete or keep into the text of your comment reads more naturally, I'm all for that.--Gordonrox24 | Talk

The Woman in Gold (movie) redirectionEdit

For what reason was the article on the movie redirected to another page? Angela Kate Maureen 02:59, 23 May 2021 (UTC)[]

Hello Angela! Maybe we can include @Darkfrog24: here as well to help clarify a bit on the intentions for these pages, as they are the user who made the pages in question. It looks like The Woman in Gold (movie) was created on May 20th, as a redirect to Woman in Gold. Woman in Gold itself was created on May 20th, and was redirected shortly thereafter to Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I by Darkfrog. This created a double-redirect at The Woman in Gold (movie), which I fixed earlier today. We do in fact have another article, Woman in Gold (movie) that has content about the movie itself. Perhaps we should consider changing some of those redirects around to direct properly to the movie's article. It is a little bit confusing dealing with articles with very similar names. Thanks!--Gordonrox24 | Talk 03:05, 23 May 2021 (UTC)[]
Yes. A few days ago, the article about the movie was just called "Woman in Gold." Then I made the article about the painting. I moved the article about the movie to "Woman in Gold (movie)," but I guess I didn't catch all the redirects. Darkfrog24 (talk) 03:17, 23 May 2021 (UTC)[]
Okay, I see the problem. The link "THE Woman in Gold (movie)" redirected to the article about the painting, and not to the article Woman in Gold (movie). I fixed it. Yes, an article title that's explicitly mentioning "movie" should go to the movie, not to the painting with the same name as the movie. Darkfrog24 (talk) 03:19, 23 May 2021 (UTC)[]
Most excellent. Thanks to you both!--Gordonrox24 | Talk 03:20, 23 May 2021 (UTC)[]

Edit war guyEdit

Hey don’t get involved on reversing that guys edits. We are waiting on him to get blocked and put in for a global block. Just to keep you out of trouble. I think he’s an lta but can’t quite put the contribs yet. PotsdamLamb (talk) 00:59, 24 May 2021 (UTC)[]

I'll be just fine carrying on like I have been, thanks. --Gordonrox24 | Talk 01:12, 24 May 2021 (UTC)[]


Hey so I noticed you like the good chemistry. Yesterday I tried to fix the two entries showing up as value in the info box but they won’t take even with the right identifiers. Do you know how to fix that in the template? PotsdamLamb (talk) 01:34, 24 May 2021 (UTC)[]

Hmmmm that is a puzzler. Nothing is coming to me right away. I'll keep playing with it and see if I see anything.--Gordonrox24 | Talk 01:45, 24 May 2021 (UTC)[]
Yeah I tried a few days ago and it still wouldn't accept the input. Something is wrong here: probably the template has a bug. Maybe I should make a new post on the talk page of that template? Animalguy7 (talk) 02:27, 24 May 2021 (UTC).[]
I put a notice on the talk page of the Template, Chembox. We'll see when it gets a reply. Animalguy7 (talk) 02:37, 24 May 2021 (UTC).[]
@PotsdamLamb:@Animalguy7: It appears as though the import by User:Djsasso may have fixed this error. Perhaps you can check it out and confirm if it is to your liking. I believe it will be. --Gordonrox24 | Talk 08:07, 5 June 2021 (UTC)[]
Looks good to me. I know Djsasso is good with those as he has helped me correct some throwing errors. Thanks for following up. Much appreciated! PDLTalk to me!OMG, What have I done? 08:16, 5 June 2021 (UTC)[]
Indeed he is!--Gordonrox24 | Talk 08:20, 5 June 2021 (UTC)[]
Looks good! Animalguy7 (talk) 21:08, 5 June 2021 (UTC).[]

questions on administrator rolesEdit

Gordonrox24: For what reason is an administrator expected to have involvements in Request for Deletion nominations? You mentioned you only saw 225 discussions for Wikipedia space during the eleven years I've been performing tasks on English and Simple English Wikipedia. How much experience in community discussions is required before someone gets admin rights? Angela Kate Maureen 17:36, 5 August 2021 (UTC)[]

Hi @Tropical Storm Angela:, thanks for the question. In my opinion, an administrator nominee should have some experience in discussions such as RfD as an admin may be called upon to use their tools to respond to those discussions. This can be things like carrying out community consensus to delete or keep at RfD, or dealing with community ban discussions at the Administrator's noticeboard. A history of participating in the discussion process can be a good indicator as to how a nominee can handle the discussions that are often lengthy and sometimes contentious. In terms of quantity, I don't have an exact number. I just think I'd like to see more consistent community engagement. To be fair, there are probably some editors out there that would disagree with me and say this type of engagement isn't necessary at all. I'd just be more comfortable with a higher level of activity in this area. I hope this provides a little clarity on my thoughts. Thanks, --Gordonrox24 | Talk 20:03, 5 August 2021 (UTC)[]

Hi. Thanks. An administrator has taken care of this page. In the future you can add {{QD|your reason to delete --~~~~}} to request quick deletion of a page. --Gordonrox24 | Talk 20:36, 25 August 2021 (UTC)[]

Wikipedia PageEdit

Sir I don’t think this page is isn’t noteble enough please removed the tags Aagamjot (talk) 00:58, 5 September 2021 (UTC)[]

Hi. The tags need to stay on until the discussion is complete.--Gordonrox24 | Talk 05:33, 5 September 2021 (UTC)[]


Hi! When you leave a message on talkpages, do you get the editing screen, or a different box that has both the 'visual' and 'source' code button, and on the bottom right, it says "cancel" and "add topic" I cannot remember if this was a beta feature here, or an code update. Sorry that I have a hard time describing, I can attach a screenshot to clarify things! Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 21:35, 7 September 2021 (UTC)[]

Hi! I just seem to get the standard edit screen with the source code displayed. To be honest, I'm using the old monobook skin so I'm probably not seeing what you are. I'll try a few different skins and browsers later and see if I see what you see. --Gordonrox24 | Talk 21:38, 7 September 2021 (UTC)[]
Oh, I am an Idiot, I totally forgot about being able to look this up in my beta tab, yep it is a beta feature, callled "Discussion Tools" --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 21:39, 7 September 2021 (UTC)[]
Oh cool! Glad to have it figured out! --Gordonrox24 | Talk 21:40, 7 September 2021 (UTC)[]
(talk page stalker) Yeah on some wikis, it's automatically enabled (although I still prefer mw:Flow than Discussion Tools) SHB2000 (talk) 10:17, 8 September 2021 (UTC)[]

LTA Help please!Edit

Hello Gordonrox24, could you please block User: because it is the same person that you blocked just minutes ago? They are continuing their rampage as we speak. Cheers, Hockeycatcat (talk) 14:35, 20 September 2021 (UTC)[]
