  • I have on one en-wiki. I don't remember what I put as the information for the encryption, how can I void/trash it and make a new one? --Thegooduser Let's Talk!ย :) ๐Ÿ 02:38, 13 May 2020 (UTC)
@Thegooduser: you'll just have to rebuild the hash. There's no way of recovering it if you've lost or don't remember the secret. Operator873talkconnect 15:35, 15 May 2020 (UTC)
Ok, thanks --Thegooduser Let's Talk!ย :) ๐Ÿ 15:38, 15 May 2020 (UTC)


Hi, I noticed that you deleted several new wiki pages I marked as stubs. On one of them you said that it had been deleted from English Wikipedia, I didn't find any such thing, could you please prove it?--Choicom (talk) 17:43, 14 May 2020 (UTC)


hi. and thanks. can i use my talk page instead of sandbox? Also, if you think my articles have a problem, let me know so I can fix the problem and prevent previous problems. thank youSmivolov (talk) 09:47, 15 May 2020 (UTC)

Help with WikidataEdit

Hello. How I can add an infobox from Wikidata to the article Bubble Bobble? Best regards. โœ๏ธA.WagnerC (talk) 15:31, 15 May 2020 (UTC)

@A.WagnerC: I really don't know. You might want to look at things like {{Infobox person/Wikidata}}... but it doesn't look like we have many Wikidata infoboxes yet. Operator873talkconnect 17:38, 15 May 2020 (UTC)
I found. It's this the command {{Infobox video game}}. Thanks, you helped guide me to the page. โœ๏ธA.WagnerC (talk) 18:11, 15 May 2020 (UTC)

@Thegooduser: Sold isn't on BE 1500 but you can still use it by wiki-linking if the context requires the reader to know what buy means. Operator873talkconnect 17:38, 15 May 2020 (UTC)
@Operator873: is โ€œeditโ€ also Simple English? (talk) 22:02, 22 May 2020 (UTC)

Article remake of MrBeast on this wikiEdit

Since MrBeast article on this wiki has been deleted three times, including you recently deleted that article back in December, can I re-create that article on this wiki from here from my proposed article subpage? He's a huge YouTuber with over 30 million subscribers as of this month. If you say yes, then I will do it as it's a stub for a simple version here. --Allen (talk / ctrb) 23:22, 23 May 2020 (UTC)

@Allen2: All I can say for certain is that the number of subscribers does not imply notability for YouTubers on this project. However, if the article is recreated with new content that is supported with reliable sources which contain in-depth coverage, I don't see why the article would be deleted. At the minimum, it would have to be discussed in a WP:RFD. Operator873talkconnect 16:24, 26 May 2020 (UTC)


  • If someone makes an "X Language Wikipedia" for the X Language, does the creator become admin of X Wikipedia come up with the rules for that "X Wikipedia"? If so, how do their rules for that X Wikipedia get approval? --Thegooduser Let's Talk!ย :) ๐Ÿ 16:32, 26 May 2020 (UTC)
@Thegooduser: Users can't arbitrarily make a Wikipedia. It has to be approved in accordance with m:Language proposal policy. If the new project meets all the requirements and is approved, likely the community would appoint their own administrators who would be given the flag by Stewards. This would be a question better asked on meta. Operator873talkconnect 17:01, 26 May 2020 (UTC)

Request for OversighthershipEdit

  • What does Vogon Poetry and Bernie Sanders have to do with Oversight? Or were those questions for humour? --Thegooduser Let's Talk!ย :) ๐Ÿ 18:11, 26 May 2020 (UTC)
humor. Operator873talkconnect 18:16, 26 May 2020 (UTC)


Is there any userscript you know of that will automatically watchlist every page I visit here for me? It's very annoying for me to manually add the page, and If I forget sometimes I can't find the page anymore --Thegooduser Let's Talk!ย :) ๐Ÿ 19:00, 26 May 2020 (UTC)

The default skin, Vector, has a star on the menu bar you can click to watchlist a page. I do not know of a userscript that will watch a page you visit automatically, nor do I think that'd be a good idea. Operator873talkconnect 19:17, 26 May 2020 (UTC)
Why isn't it a good idea? --Thegooduser Let's Talk!ย :) ๐Ÿ 00:19, 27 May 2020 (UTC)


Hi, Sorry to bother you and I hope you are doing fine. Where is the template for Wikibreak that says that the user is having mental health issues? I am wanting to use that template, well, because, I am experiencing mental health issues, I am fine enough to still make good decisions, etc by the way, just my ocd getting in the way. If you can tell me where to find the template that would be great. Thanks --Thegooduser Let's Talk!ย :) ๐Ÿ 02:44, 27 June 2020 (UTC)

@Thegooduser: I'm so sorry to hear that. I completely understand that need though. I'm not sure if we have that template on this project, but if you'll give me a few minutes, I'll import it for you. Operator873talkconnect 02:47, 27 June 2020 (UTC)
@Thegooduser: already have some options for you. I imported: {{User mental health}}, {{User health inactive}}, and {{User stress}}. If one of those doesn't suit your needs, take a look at enwiki and see which template most fits what you need. Operator873talkconnect 02:53, 27 June 2020 (UTC)
@Thegooduser: Sorry to hear about this, hope you have a good week and stay safe! Also like thank @Operator873: for his act of kindness towards a fellow user, great work. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 20:38, 27 June 2020 (UTC)
Hello. Will this break affect my criteria for adminship If I decide to run in the future for admin, because of inactivity? I was taking a break to feel better, but since I have no friends, and a I worry that I will be viewed as an inactive user here, I came back to edit , I am wondering, if a break like this is understandable and won't affect any future requests for permissions. --Thegooduser Let's Talk!ย :) ๐Ÿ 00:24, 12 July 2020 (UTC)
@Thegooduser: Absolutely not. It's important to take breaks from Wikipedia, which is why we have those wikibreak templates. You'll notice we have several sysops, a couple CUs and crats that go inactive from time to time. Don't feel like taking a break, especially for health reasons, would impact your reputation negatively here. You're appreciated. And you will not loose standing by taking care of yourself. Be well, my friend. Operator873talkconnect 00:33, 12 July 2020 (UTC)

Thank you so much for letting me know. I will be back soon, Enjoy your day, Operator873ย :-) --Thegooduser Let's Talk!ย :) ๐Ÿ 00:37, 12 July 2020 (UTC)


Thank you for blocking this vandal. It is also good to assume that this special contributor is also this user based on similar editing and reckless edits. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 19:43, 27 June 2020 (UTC)

@TDKR Chicago 101: Already range blocked.ย :) Thank you for letting me help. Operator873talkconnect 19:52, 27 June 2020 (UTC)

Request for CU for just 1 accountEdit

Is it possible to request for CU (perhaps for sleeper). While I'm unable to identify any related accounts right now, the creator of this article seems to claim to know Wiki so much, created a series of spam across various Wiki projects, and have even recreated this article (previously deleted byย :@Eptalon:. โ€” Infogapp1 (talk) 12:57, 28 June 2020 (UTC)

That sounds like a fishing expedition that CU canโ€™t be used for. โ€œItโ€™s probably the sick of SOMEONE isnโ€™t a valid reason to use CU.โ€ Only (talk) 13:18, 28 June 2020 (UTC)
I see. Hence I asked first and didn't put in the request. โ€” Infogapp1 (talk) 13:30, 28 June 2020 (UTC)
@Infogapp1: A good place to start is always CentralAuth. This account has some age on it. While that's not a exonerating factor in and of itself, it does bring some amount of legitimacy to the account in question. Operator873talkconnect 17:31, 28 June 2020 (UTC)
Thanks! โ€” Infogapp1 (talk) 20:19, 28 June 2020 (UTC)

Can I request for CU for an IP that appears to be connected with an account (w/username), especially when the edit patterns are pretty much identifical? For example, this IP edited on Mettalury and added a spam link. Now, a named user is editing Smelting with exactly the same links. โ€” Infogapp1 (talk) 13:50, 30 June 2020 (UTC)

Or in such cases, would it be easier to just report as VIP (after ample warnings, of course). โ€” Infogapp1 (talk) 13:52, 30 June 2020 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) You can, but a CU won't comment on if the IP or user are the same. Reporting to VIP is also a good option because an admin who is not a CU might decide that it is quacking like a duck so they can block them as well. -Djsasso (talk) 13:56, 30 June 2020 (UTC)
@Infogapp1: What he said. Operator873talkconnect 14:06, 30 June 2020 (UTC)
@Djsasso: Thank you. How many more strikes should I wait till I can report this particular user/IP to VIP? I already posted 1 warning on each account and each occurence. Despite assuming good faith, I honestly think they're not here to add any value and simply promote. โ€” Infogapp1 (talk) 14:23, 30 June 2020 (UTC)
Different people may give different answers, but since they haven't done anymore since you warned I am willing to wait to see if they do it again at which point I would block. Others might wait longer. -Djsasso (talk) 14:25, 30 June 2020 (UTC)
All clear, thanks to you both. โ€” Infogapp1 (talk) 16:34, 1 July 2020 (UTC)

Iโ€™ve been blocked from editing pages (castes) for a month by bishonen and CaptainEek.

Uncyclopedia ArticleEdit

Recently you reverted my edits to the Uncyclopedia article and were a bit too hasty to label it vandalism. Could you explain why you thought my edits were "unhelpful"?

(talk page stalker) probably because you removed a helpful paragraph which definitley was true. IWI (chat) 08:39, 14 July 2020 (UTC)

Banned from creationEdit

What does this notice mean?

The title "๐Ÿ’ค" has been banned from creation. It matches the following blacklist entry: .*[^\P{So}ยฆยงยฉยฎยฐยถโ„–โ„ขโ˜€-โšฒโœ-โžพ`].* <casesensitive> # "Other punctuation", with some exceptions (may need more, this is a huge character class); note that single-character titles are permitted by the title whitelist Herษ‹uartda (talk) 00:33, 24 July 2020 (UTC)

@Herษ‹uartda: It means you should not make articles with emojis as the title. As a reminder, you are still on final warning. Operator873talkconnect 00:40, 24 July 2020 (UTC)

Passion of Deletion New and Renewable Energy AuthorityEdit

Hi @Operator873:

  • You deleted my last submitted article for "Advertisement". It is about the oldest governmental body for Renewable energy in Africa!
  • It is an organizing governmental body not a commercial organization, It is a local regulating body!
  • Can you read carefully before deletion?
  • Shall i submit it again or you restore it?

--Hamid (talk) 21:11, 25 July 2020 (UTC)

@ุญูู…ูŠุฏ: I deleted the article as spam because it had a very promotional and advertisement like tone. Can you disclose your connection to that agency? Also, since you are currently blocked on the English Wikipedia for abuse of multiple accounts, you are subject to the WP:ONESTRIKE rule on this project and can be blocked with no further warning should you choose to continue breaking our rules. Operator873talkconnect 21:28, 25 July 2020 (UTC)
  • You are you do not have the right to Wikipedia:Harassment for my block in other Wikipedia, i have asked for the standard offer there and they refused to unblock me, and asked me to contribute to other projects like(simple) (Their biggest problem was competence link. And i can ask for unblock again after my significant contributions in other projects like The AR Wiki), If i wanted.
  • You are talking about WP:ONESTRIKE. It doesn't belong me because i did not make any mistakes. I created article and you deleted it for the tone although you were able tag it, so i can fix later?!. If i wanted to make something wrong, I wouldn't have written to you my last message (Query and permission)! * i do not have connection to this authority and no evidence for this, above all they are governmental not commercial.
  • Your last message was mostly threatening and did not answer me? how i can resubmit it?

--Hamid (talk) 22:27, 25 July 2020 (UTC)

@ุญูู…ูŠุฏ: I have no obligation to undelete the article. Observing that you are blocked for sockpuppetry, a violation of the Terms of Use on Wikipedia, is not harrassment. You are, by definition, subject to WP:ONESTRIKE. You should not resubmit your article without significant copyedit for tone. Additionally, you never answer me either. What is your connection to that agency? Operator873talkconnect 22:32, 25 July 2020 (UTC)
My connection to this body is nothing, i am seeking for articles that is not posted in English where i have created in Arabic. Any article i find not available in English i translate it and make available in English!

for example, i made:

  • Tร–MER but it is already available in English

So i have a list of different governmental bodies to post in English like:

and more all are articles created in Arabic but have know English pages. I wish you got my idea!--Hamid (talk) 22:49, 25 July 2020 (UTC)
