Populations change

An added suggestion you may want to consider: It is generally not seen as a problem to copy over the infobox as is from an En.wiki article. While most copy paste of their content is frowned upon, Infoboxes tend to be clean cut enough to be accepted. The main benifits are that there is a lot of useful info there (size, pop, dates, etc) and their version is likely more up to date on who is in charge. Attention would be needed for images and logos as En. has many of their own while we are limited to free versions on Commons. This is often only a quick preview and not an issue that gets bad. location infoboxes are not usually flooded with copyrighted info (Television, movies and songs are bad) so issue could be rare. This would lead to a copy/paste for the infobox and the adding of on line to state population in the prose but the outcome for the articles would be huge.

Thanks change

Thanks for fixing my silly mistake, I guess maybe that's a sign I should take a break off Wikipedia 😅 FatalFit | ✉   22:43, 6 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Wikipedia:Twinkle change

Thank you for your contributions. I think this can help you, have a look on the project's documention. MathXplore (talk) 01:56, 8 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@MathXplore Thank you! I will look into that. Kk.urban (talk) 01:58, 8 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

thank you change

This edit was my mistake, mistaken for a user subpage. Thank you for the guidance. 기나ㅏㄴ (talk) 06:29, 10 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Santol (Cotton Fruit)‎ change

I intentionally suppressed the redirect because that is a bad disambiguation for a title. It should have been titled Santol (fruit) as there are no other fruits with this name, or the binomen, as I have done. — *Fehufangą✉ Talk page 05:23, 16 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Fehufanga There's a link going to it from List of fruits, which is one of the most viewed pages on this site, which is why the page kept getting created and then deleted. Kk.urban (talk) 05:24, 16 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
That's a bad link to a bad disambiguation. I've replaced it. — *Fehufangą✉ Talk page 05:25, 16 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

A1 change

Hi there, I saw your A1 requests for Luis Molteni, Mico Cundari and Patrizia Scascitelli but deleted these under A4 instead. "X is a Y" type articles are not eligible for A1, because they do have some helpful information in them. However, in case of people like these, there is no claim to notability – there are many Italian actors, but simply being an actor doesn't make you notable. So, I deleted these under A4 (no claim to notability). I hope that helps. Thanks, --Ferien (talk) 19:28, 16 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Ferien Ok, I will use A4 if I see articles like this again. Kk.urban (talk) 20:55, 16 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Wikipedia:Gravedancing change

I agree on the keep vote, the page in question explains a bad behaviour, and I want to explain it in simple english. (talk) 08:02, 26 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Why change

Hello sir please why do you ask for the dletetion of the page JulianahAdesfusi (talk) 02:01, 3 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks change

Sonia (disambiguation).--Thanks for you already moving the title.--If the article works out, then fine. 2001:2020:341:C4EB:75FE:6DC4:C132:3B81 (talk) 22:36, 11 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Comment on AN change

Hi, I saw your comment and reversion on AN. There are no problems with that, that is completely acceptable per w:WP:REDACT. Thanks, --Ferien (talk) 18:33, 15 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Ok, thanks! Kk.urban (talk) 18:33, 15 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Citations change

When using a=cite templates the parameter |url-status is only to be used to tell the system how to display the original url when an archive url is given. If there is no archive-url, the presence of any |url-status parameter will cause an error and toss the article into an error cat. En has hundreds of thousands of articles with this problem. They are beyond hope.. We have... zero. I fixed 2000 plus and keep an eye on the cat daily for new entries. When you copy infoboxes from them, there is a good likelihood you are bringing the error with the box (4 of the ones you brought over yesterday had the error in the pop footnote reference) Category:CS1 maint: url-status is the maintenance cat in question. It has the info on what causes the error as well as how to set up your .css to display this and many other citation errors. Pure Evil (talk) 22:40, 16 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Ok, I have added that as a css preference. I will look out for that now when I copy infoboxes. Kk.urban (talk) 22:45, 16 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

DYK change

Thanks ever so much for challenging my wording on the Articles of Confederation. It's been a long time since I took that class and I wasn't comfortable leaving as it was so did some research and you're correct. I've changed the wording. Could you imagine if modern-day Canada tried to join the US based on that? Not that we'd be interested mind you. :) fr33kman 01:54, 20 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Facebook and Malo/Aore constituency change

When reverting my change you commented, "Facebook is not a reliable source, but this is the official channel of the Vanuatu Election Office, which is a reliable primary source" But, that is in question. Readers and editors cannot view without a Facebook account. It may be claimed that the FB page is official, but cannot be independently verified. Needs a secondary source. Facebook is inherently unreliable. --Gotanda (talk) 11:28, 3 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I can view part of it without a Facebook account, but not all. But this isn't a reason to not use a source - there are many paywalled websites and books used as sources. There's no inherent difference between using Facebook or a separate website to share documents - either way the reliable depends on who it comes from. I see that on all the official documents from the website (electoral.gov.vu), such as this document, they have a footer that includes a link to the Facebook account. If a .gov.vu isn't reliable, I don't know what is. Kk.urban (talk) 16:58, 3 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
(talk page stalker) .gov.vu is not a reliable source regarding things involving itself (by default). No entity can be considered as totally neutral regarding its own activities. :) fr33kman 17:02, 3 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It's not neutral, but it's reliable. This is just for election results and proof that the Facebook page is actually from the Vanuatu Electoral Office. We can use official Vanuatu election reports for Vanuatu election results, just as official United States election reports are routinely used on Wikipedia for every US election.
See en:WP:PRIMARY: "A primary source may be used on Wikipedia only to make straightforward, descriptive statements of facts that can be verified by any educated person with access to the primary source but without further, specialized knowledge." Kk.urban (talk) 17:06, 3 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'm just stating that all such incidences must be viewed with a grain of salt. :) fr33kman 17:08, 3 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Opossum change

Thanks for cleaning up Opossum. My set up highlights ref errors in bright colors so I cant miss them so that page was just visually screaming at me. Hense, I see pages like that, I get testy.. And to remove/fix that and have it put back... again, thanks. Pure Evil (talk) 20:15, 8 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

No problem. Oddly, they used "December 5, 2023" for some of the access dates. Kk.urban (talk) 21:15, 8 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
You would be surprised how not odd that actually is.. I also see a lot of 1990s access dates.. a decade before wikipedia was created, people were accessing references. Pure Evil (talk) 01:25, 9 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Clallam County edit reversion change

Hi, you asked me to clarify my reason for removing the text saying that "Klallam" comes from a word meaning "the strong people." I didn't know where to respond, so here.

I study the Klallam language, and the phrase meaning "the strong people" is specifically ʔéɬx̣ʷaʔ nəxʷsƛ̕ay̕əm̕ ─ the name of the Elwha tribe. I don't know the specific meaning of nəxʷsƛ̕ay̕əm̕, which is (related to) the word that gives us "Klallam." Algæ (talk) 01:35, 13 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Gaza and vicinity. Warfare and crime, touching bases. change

"Template:Campaignbox 2023 Israel–Hamas war".--Hebrew links: I am guessing that en-wiki has those links, if a topic is covered at Hebrew-wikipedia (and En-wiki might have gotten their own (relevant) article later).-(In about a week, i intend to check the "war article" talk page. Please consider mentioning any major issues, about hebrew-links, there. And yes, the hebrew-links is now, c. a major issue, if those links make less sense now, than before.)--The above is the only thing i gleened/gleaned/skimmed from your post.--Again, i will try to check out article talk-pages, come time.--If this post makes sense to you, then fine.--Until c. next week. 2001:2020:321:80E7:A5F9:63FE:78FE:4D91 (talk) 18:13, 15 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Adminship change

You've shown the need for using the mop often enough. Have you thought about running to become an admin? I'm sure you'd make a good one. :) fr33kman 16:40, 17 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

No, I've only been here for under 3 months, and I'm not very good with writing in simple English, notability, or other important things. Thanks though. Kk.urban (talk) 16:44, 17 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Billy Graham rule change

Regarding my deletion of one unsourced, unreferenced passage "is done to avoid sexual temptation," that is what was biased. The presence of a spouse or anyone else does not necessarily reduce sexual temptation. There is no support for that. There is plenty of support for the opposite in life, art, and literature. The deleted claim is biased. I suggest you undo your revert unless you find a reliable source. --Gotanda (talk) 06:16, 16 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'm making no comment on whether it reduces sexual temptation. I'm saying that's one of the reasons they do it. This is not about whether or not that's effective. These articles support this:
There is another reason that is in the sources, but not mentioned on this article: They want to prevent the public from thinking that they MIGHT be having inappropriate relationships. Kk.urban (talk) 06:23, 16 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
If you are "making no comment on whether it reduces sexual temptation" then the plain language of the article is not supported. People may make claims that it reduces temptation, but that is different. --Gotanda (talk) 23:43, 16 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
