Welcome to the Simple English Wikipedia!

How ya doing?Edit

You probably won:t see me around much for the next few weeks or months! But I will keep TWW updated to the best I can! Just seeing how things are here on Wikipedia. I just graduated High School, but still got lots of work to do on online school, and in real life! Doesn:t look like much has happened, asides from Ferien being an admin (congrats to him!) and the new Good Article Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 20:25, 27 July 2021 (UTC)

(And sorry for typos, using a Japanese-English Keyboard)! --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 20:26, 27 July 2021 (UTC)
Hello つがる! I am doing fine thanks. Congrats on your graduation. Nice to see you here again. --IWI (talk) 10:41, 28 July 2021 (UTC)

Freedom Haven page deleted for incorrect reason - please correctEdit

If I'm reading this correctly (I'm a newbie), you deleted Freedom Haven page for copyright violations because I missed adding a reference to my page when I was quoting myself. I then added the missing reference, but you deleted it anyways - please correct this and restore the page. The page in question is both [FreedomHaven.org FreedomHaven.org] AND http://freedomhaven.org/Tony/FreedomHaven/index2.html?5800771.8848421555... they both point to the same folder on the same server - it's the same page. Please correct your mistake and restore the page. Thank you.TonyOlsen (talk) 02:05, 28 July 2021 (UTC)

Hello there. I took the decision to close the RfD early mainly because of the clear copyright violation. We cannot keep any text sourced from another website. Aside from that, as some voters said, the subject doesn't seem to have been covered in enough reliable sources to be notable for Wikipedia. There also appears to be a conflict of interest here; I suggest you edit in areas that you are not directly involved in. If you still disagree with my deletion, you can take it to deletion review. Best, --IWI (talk) 10:39, 28 July 2021 (UTC)

"I took the decision to close the RfD early mainly because of the clear copyright violation." I referenced the page I was quoting - why didn't this fix the copyright flag? What should I have done on the page that I didn't? TonyOlsen (talk) 00:17, 29 July 2021 (UTC)

Whether you reference the source of the text or not, we cannot use copyrighted text from other websites. --IWI (talk) 13:15, 29 July 2021 (UTC)

Thank you for your response. "we cannot use copyrighted text from other websites" - I'm having trouble understanding this and would appreciate more information. Ignoring for the moment the fact that the source qouted here (FreedomHaven.org) was/is NOT copyrighted (it's published under the GNU license), doesn't WikiPedia quote copyrighted sources? If so, was the problem that I quoted this source incorrectly, or are you saying that we shouldn't quote copyrighted sources at all... or are you saying something else? I'm confused and request additional clarification (so that I can do it correctly next time). TonyOlsen (talk) 12:06, 30 July 2021 (UTC)

I hadn’t seen that it was published under a free licence, and would need to see where it says that. And you didn’t just quote the page (which would be fair use anyway), you simply used the text in the article to create this article. The point is moot anyway, because there were other reasons why I closed the RfD early as highlighted in the RfD for the deletion (notability). It was my bad choosing to delete under G12, instead of the RfD; apologies for that. --IWI (talk) 10:44, 31 July 2021 (UTC)

Tea SeaEdit

Don't forget this, tedious as the process is! Macdonald-ross (talk) 13:38, 29 July 2021 (UTC)

Yes, I nominated it. Thanks! --IWI (talk) 13:41, 29 July 2021 (UTC)

RevdelEdit

I noticed you removed the edit summary, but it can be still found in the move log. Darubrub (Let me know) 13:04, 5 August 2021 (UTC)

  Done --IWI (talk) 13:05, 5 August 2021 (UTC)

the uses of "unauthorized" editing bot scriptsEdit

Is there some reason Wikipedia editors are prohibited from operating unauthorized editing bot scripts? Can you please explain reasons that editors on Wikipedia sites would not be allowed to do so? Angela Kate Maureen 02:43, 17 August 2021 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) Probably because if done wrong, they would mess up all the pages it operated on. --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 03:29, 17 August 2021 (UTC)
Because to use a bot, you have to be approved by a crat at WT:BOTS. Though the community has shown opposition to mass page creation with bots in the past. --IWI (talk) 08:35, 17 August 2021 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) Using a script can allow a user to make a mess of hundreds (if not thousands) or articles in a very short period of time. That is the biggest reason, so only trusted users are given the ability to use bots through the process that IWI links to. Anyone else that does so will be blocked. -Djsasso (talk) 12:03, 17 August 2021 (UTC)
