Helpme

{{Helpme|How do I use my status bar?  Polymathsj Talk 05:08, 14 July 2010 (UTC)}}

Do you want to install Qui? πr2 (talk • changes) 05:15, 14 July 2010 (UTC)
Add it to User:Polymathsj/monobook.js and User:Polymathsj/vector.js too (just to be safe). πr2 (talk • changes) 05:18, 14 July 2010 (UTC)
I did it. Thanks.  Polymathsj Talk 05:24, 14 July 2010 (UTC)
Do you see the ball in the upper-right corner of the screen? πr2 (talk • changes) 05:25, 14 July 2010 (UTC)
Go to some page (let's say Car). Do you see the status circle in the corner of the page? πr2 (talk • changes) 05:31, 14 July 2010 (UTC)
Yes, I do.  Polymathsj Talk 05:34, 14 July 2010 (UTC)

"Stub"

Hi there. I'm going to have to ask you to add some more content to the recent "articles" you are creating. "A dial is a knob with numbers all around it. {{tech-stub}}" is not an article and can be quickly deleted. Additionally as this is an encyclopaedia, dictionary definitions are more suited to Wiktionary. Thanks for understanding. Lauryn Ashby (talk) 05:16, 14 July 2010 (UTC)

Quick deletion of Western European Time

The page you wrote, Western European Time, has been selected for quick deletion. This is because the page was a page that had no content. 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. πr2 (talk • changes) 06:31, 14 July 2010 (UTC)

Quick deletion of Moscow Time

The page you wrote, Moscow Time, has been selected for quick deletion. This is because the page was a page that had no content. 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. πr2 (talk • changes) 06:40, 14 July 2010 (UTC)

  • Again, please don't create pages in mainspace that have no other content besides a template or two with designs on finishing later, as they will end up deleted. You should use your userpace for micro-stubs such as that, until they're sufficiently built up to even be considered a stub. To see an example of a good start to a stub in main space, please see this. Lauryn Ashby (talk) 06:43, 14 July 2010 (UTC)

Hey...you shouldn't be QDing short but notable articles. It's misuse of the template. Purplebackpack89 06:27, 19 July 2010 (UTC)

  Your new changes to Madrid are vandalism and this is not acceptable on any Wikipedia. Please stop. If your vandalism continues, you will be blocked from changing Wikipedia. Purplebackpack89 06:32, 19 July 2010 (UTC)

Tagging pages like Tricycle for deletion is disruptive, because it is an article that does not have "no content". Please stop doing it. I understand that some of your new pages were deleted under A2, but that does not warrant tagging so many pages for deletion in a short time. sonia♫♪ 06:31, 19 July 2010 (UTC)

your QD requests

Hi there! I've declined now all your requests. There article are fine (by community consensus). Especially for the city/town stubs: We've had lots of discussions about those kinds of sub-stubs. Our community decided to keep. So please don't tag such stubs for deletions. Thanks -Barras talk 13:35, 19 July 2010 (UTC)

Template:Orphan

I see that you did some changes a year or so ago to Template:Orphan; I wonder whether you could have a glance at Template talk:Orphan please? - David Biddulph (talk) 14:07, 6 October 2011 (UTC)

IATAC

Could you please review my article on IATAC again? I removed a good chunk of the external references. Believe this afticle is good to go now as it is. JKopf (talk) 12:08, 11 November 2011 (UTC)

template Infobox Museum

I noticed your change to the doc page for this template. Did I mess something up with my change to the template? --Auntof6 (talk) 01:13, 19 November 2011 (UTC)

No, you didn't. I was simply updating the documentation to transclude for the new location, and I requested QD of the doc page for the doc page of {{Infobox museum}} so I could move the other doc page there. The one to be moved has content, unlike the one I requested deletion of, and I am not going to make a copy/paste move.  Hazard-SJ  ±  01:16, 19 November 2011 (UTC)

Infobox

hi.. just a little confused about this edit: [1]. Won't the new formatting for the infobox with all the HTML tags just make it more difficult to edit the contents? Can you please refer me to any discussion/consensus that support or give the rational behind this kind of formatting? Thanks! Subh83 (talk) 05:49, 22 November 2011 (UTC)

changing words

For what reason would certain words get changed? Examples: they're gets changed to they are, isn't into is not. Why is that? 166.216.194.47 (talk) 05:12, 10 December 2011 (UTC)

That is to make a more formal approach. Contractions are more informal.  Hazard-SJ  ±  05:22, 10 December 2011 (UTC)

I know you took a look at my article. I knew this was going to happen because I'm knew at this but I need some help with some of the issues with it. Maybe you can help by telling me what was wrong and how to improve it. I'm so knew i don't know if i even typed this all right Chrismatz (talk)Chrismatz

Inconsequential changes.

I believe you have been warned about it in the past, but please don't make meaningless edits that don't affect the page. I see that you made well over a hundred edits such as this where you just changed the case of a template. This is very much against the rules of AWB. Continuing to do such edits will end up with access being removed. I realize this is a very late warning but I only just noticed now. I also believe in the past you were asked not to add the orphan tag to articles, which is simple to just uncheck in the preferences in AWB. -DJSasso (talk) 01:42, 18 December 2011 (UTC)

I'm sorry, but I haven't been notified as to this matter in the past, according to my memory. Also, although I don't remember my intentions from that time, it might have been to clear the upper case redirect so it could be deleted.  Hazard-SJ  ㋡  01:51, 18 December 2011 (UTC)
In addition, I don't remember being asked about the orphan tag, but I'll do so now. Was there a discussion to discontinue their use? I'd just like to know.  Hazard-SJ  ㋡  01:53, 18 December 2011 (UTC)
Redirects shouldn't be deleted they aren't bad, for example its very likely more articles will be imported from en with the old infobox name for example which would then not work because the redirect was gone. I may be confusing you with someone else since you haven't been that active lately but I am pretty sure it was you. As for the orphan tag, I am sure you had been. Basically most articles here are going to be orphans because we have a very low article count. The tags end up making what articles we do have look worse because the vast majority of our articles are orphans so if you were to tag them all almost all of our articles would have the tag. -DJSasso (talk) 01:56, 18 December 2011 (UTC)
I understand re redirects and orphan tagging. However, I would like to know if there was a discussion to discontinue the use of the orphan template. If so, someone or some people could make a bot or some bots to remove the orphan tags.  Hazard-SJ  ㋡  02:38, 18 December 2011 (UTC)
There's over 5000 transclusions... Osiris (talk) 02:43, 18 December 2011 (UTC)
Yes, its often a tag used by people trying to rack up their edit count and who are too concerned with how many edits they have. If I recall correctly last time he had been asked to stop doing it. (might not have been him I have to look through edits) He had then asked if he could be the one to remove them from all the pages and people said that would be compounding the bad situation so we just leave them as is and remove them as we see them. Though in some cases they are appropriate probably. It is the overuse of them that is inappropriate. AWB is written for en.wiki where orphans are odd. It is simply a case where automation is not a good idea here. -DJSasso (talk) 02:49, 18 December 2011 (UTC)
Not that I would know, but might could you be thinking of Neurolysis (talk · contribs)? He tagged over 2000 articles with it in May 2009... Osiris (talk) 03:36, 18 December 2011 (UTC)

┌─────────────────────────────────┘
I'm simply asking if there was a discussion or not. No one user can remove that many transclusions manually. I wouldn't even be willing to try removing 100 manually. I'm not that concerned of my edit count. I may occasionally check it, but I don't really care. Recently, I have started using AWB to help with typos, stub template removal and reorganization of the source from pages in Category:Stubs, mainly for the first two tasks, because I started thinking that some pages that aren't stubs are still tagged as stubs. I also like fixing typos, so I decided to merge the tasks. Is that okay?  Hazard-SJ  ㋡  03:02, 18 December 2011 (UTC)
