Hello! I am assuming you have come over from the English Wikipedia, so you are probably familiar with the way this wiki works. I hope you like it here and decide to stay. One important difference here is that we call edits changes. Here are a few links to help you adjust:

There is much to do here. For example, there are a lot of articles that do not exist yet, which you can bring over from the English Wikipedia and simplify. Do have a look around and see what you would like to do. Thank you for joining us! If you need any help, be sure to visit Simple Talk or contact an administrator. Happy changing!

Can you nominate Revali and/or Midna articles for afd at english wikipedia. Thanks. 2001:4455:627:D100:3143:90D2:EE09:D01C (talk) 19:46, 6 July 2023 (UTC)Reply

2. Other editors there have expressed potential interest in nominating those articles. QuicoleJR (talk) 02:46, 7 July 2023 (UTC)Reply

Apparently we think a like because I just saw you were working on the elza article which I just happened to pick to make as well and finished simplifing lol.

Sorry accidentally rolled back

Hello @QuicoleJR! I accidentally rolled back your edit to VIP, sorry. It did have to be reverted though because the editor was locked and hidden globally, not locally. Just thought I’d let you know. Thanks! Illusion Flame (talk) 02:50, 19 July 2023 (UTC)Reply

Re Template:Did you know/Queue

change

Hi, DYK is currently only updated once a month per community consensus. It's usually updated on the first day of the month each month. For what it's worth, the updates do not have to be done by an admin, even though it often is done by one. If you have any more questions, feel free to let me know. --Ferien (talk) 16:36, 19 July 2023 (UTC)Reply

OK. I was just asking because all of the queues seem full. I did not know it updated so slowly. QuicoleJR (talk) 16:40, 19 July 2023 (UTC)Reply
The reasoning behind it, is that it's best to update on a less regular basis, rather than update too regularly, then have the same queue on for months. I personally would prefer 2 a month, but 1 a month is reasonable imo. --Ferien (talk) 16:44, 19 July 2023 (UTC)Reply
Question: If we update once a month, why does WP:DYK say that we update once a week? QuicoleJR (talk) 18:26, 21 July 2023 (UTC)Reply
The absolute earliest is once a week, otherwise we are just going through queues faster than we could ever handle them. But, the community have agreed that, for the moment, once a week is still too fast. --Ferien (talk) 18:58, 25 July 2023 (UTC)Reply
Hi i saw your ping again on the dyk page. I am unable to update it currently as I'm on holiday and only have access to my phone. Someone else could update it, or i could do it when i get back --Ferien (talk) 18:33, 1 August 2023 (UTC)Reply

Help with converting to Simple English

change

Hi QuicoleJR, As I wrote over at women in red I would like convert some of my short article to Simple English. I'd like to start with some very simple ones like Adele von Finck. I will create a sandbox here and then move a candidate. When you have a chance you could take a look at it an show me how to check for Simple English. Thanks. Link to follow. WomenArtistUpdates (talk) 20:49, 29 July 2023 (UTC)Reply

Sounds good. QuicoleJR (talk) 20:50, 29 July 2023 (UTC)Reply
Here's one to start on. User:WomenArtistUpdates/sandbox I will look for better examples. Also, I notice all the red links~ should those be removed. (All image are from the commons).
@WomenArtistUpdates: No, you should not remove the red links. QuicoleJR (talk) 21:07, 29 July 2023 (UTC)Reply
I think I should also make the page for List of 20th-century women artists, so that the articles I am creating won't be orphans. Any suggestions on moving lists? Also this one List of women artists exhibited at the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition --WomenArtistUpdates (talk) 21:15, 29 July 2023 (UTC)Reply
So, is Adele ready for main space? I don't see a "move" button. --WomenArtistUpdates (talk) 21:26, 29 July 2023 (UTC)Reply

I don't know where to posst this, but please be aware, that after a long set of discussions, we only very rarely have gendered categories (see WP:CATGENDER). So, I put the article above in "German painters"... Eptalon (talk) 21:19, 1 August 2023 (UTC)Reply

Hello, there are two things you may want to check at this page.

  • The author added context and removed QD tag
  • The page has its FR/NL version, and these may be taken in consideration

Hii QJ. Are you available anytime to ask something or to ask solve something? Sandeep Manikpuri (talk) 23:44, 17 August 2023 (UTC)Reply
In most cases, I will get back to you within 24 hours. I might not always have the answers, though. QuicoleJR (talk) 00:11, 18 August 2023 (UTC)Reply
Being available is more valuable than someone 'absence what we think wil bring us answers but never comes. A difficult to find answer will be much easier for get now. Sandeep Manikpuri (talk) 00:28, 18 August 2023 (UTC)Reply
Thanks QJ I was awaiting your help. I shortened your name to call in simple. Is it okay for you? I read that page and found that words should be simple but ideas never. So I have a bold stand by asking this why didn't anyone talked about my ideas and kept talking about words only. This is not good for Wikipedia's health and mine too. I in my life see good in people and aprrreciate them for what they are and you wil not believe they get encouraged to be better and to do better without suggestions. I have nothing to do if someone is wrong what I can control is to make my efforts in turning his wrongs into right. I do not give on anything before trying or working on it. I feel possessive for Wikipedia sometimes.
I will improve while working only. I can not sit back and waite until improvement comes. Not because I am expert to teach anyone but have experienced it in life. So is my knowledge. I do not work like a social media influencer or celebrity who prepare, have enough practice, assure sucees before act instead I just do. I work regardless of what feedback I will get. I am natural learner and bold enough to speak the truth and make the truth win. Again thank you for your texts. Sandeep Manikpuri (talk) 13:58, 19 August 2023 (UTC)Reply
I believe that they may have been talking about your words instead of your actions because they had trouble reading your posts. Also, the nickname is fine. QuicoleJR (talk) 14:01, 19 August 2023 (UTC)Reply
Words are subject to worry to understand, say, write and study in easiest manner what about those who can not see, those who can not hear, those who can not speak? What if had come to Wikipedia and told that I am blind how can I read your words as I do not go to school because my parents has no hope for future but I have belief and want to learn secretly in my room ?...........I will not believe if someone says we are selective in whom to deliver knowledge. If anyone is disabled then who cares? We are not in providing articles to animals. ?
Research is for breaking the barrier and discovering the unknown and applying for good.
I do not know why I was declared a promotion and advertisement content maker. Which is that content so that I can see who got this fortune of me for glowing 🤔
I will promote only those beyond limit who has protected and educated me. I am a gratitude believer not a greedytude.

Hii Coicole. I was exploring pages about which I already had writen something and somewhere. Women's being in red has close relation with a mirror short story of mine. In geography I texted about Greenland, Alaska with something and somewhere. Can you bring those in my place. I'll write further but only problem is my words. I am in like a "simple to solve but difficult to find what to solve" situation in words selection even for new username what I should name it. Help me out in this issue. I am bad at recalling what is written and worse at preparing what should be written by me. Worst has yet to come to tell what it is. Sandeep Manikpuri (talk) 09:30, 20 August 2023 (UTC)Reply
I am sorry Quicilole I saw my wrong words above. I shouldn't have asked like this. But I was little upset about whom to talk with that time. Thanks you are gentle and helping Wikipedian for others.

Reverting bad edits

change

Hi, QuicoleJR. When you revert a user's bad edits, as you did on Fence and Penis, please remember to leave a warning on the user's talk page. If enough warnings are left on a registered user's page and we see that they aren't making any constructive edits, they can be blocked as a vandalism-only account. If they aren't warned, we have to wait longer before taking any action. Thanks. -- Auntof6 (talk) 01:02, 20 August 2023 (UTC)Reply

Just so you know, I am not here to start change wars with anyone. But if I do something you disapprove, please note that I do it only out of respect for WP:V. Kojak Savalas (talk) 21:04, 24 August 2023 (UTC)Reply

Why did you remove content that had sources? QuicoleJR (talk) 21:06, 24 August 2023 (UTC)Reply
Because the sources are of dubious quality and their contents would render Simple English Wikipedia unnecessarily too complex. Kojak Savalas (talk) 21:13, 24 August 2023 (UTC)Reply
You've put info sourced by citations that do not say what you do (article Arvanites), you've employed sources from 1842 to push a point and rejected newer more recent sources that uniquely give other viewpoints than yours (article Fustanella). Super Dromaeosaurus (talk) 21:18, 24 August 2023 (UTC)Reply
Wrong. The source from 1842 is from Cyprien Rupert, a French expert on the Balkans who gave accurate observations at a time when nationalist fervor was normal. I am not saying Rupert is perfect, but dismissing his work on account of age is absurd. The Alatis and Staczek source on the Arvanites page says that Greek culture and Arvanite culture differ little because they share a common Late Byzantine (i.e., Byzantine Greek) milieu. That is supported by the other source from Kostas Karastathis, an expert on the Arvanites. But if the Alatis and Staczek source is so problematic for you, then I can remove it (Karastathis, however, stays). As for the other sources you inserted into the Fustanella page, one of them is from the Academy of Sciences of Albania established in 1972 during Albania's horrible communist period with a lamentable history of publishing nationalist propaganda (i.e., Illyrianism). Equalizing anything, however old, from the Academy of Sciences of Albania with sources from the very reputable Smithsonian Institute (and the Benaki Museum) creates a false and misleading balance. This is why you need to stop uncritically stuffing articles with junk you call "sourced content". You did this on the Evangelos Zappas page ([1], [2], [3], [4]) among other places and I spent a lot of time explaining things to you. You need to understand that people here want to read simple entries in Simple English and not get confused by complex tit-for-tat junk history. Kojak Savalas (talk) 22:03, 24 August 2023 (UTC)Reply
Can you please not do this on my talk page? QuicoleJR (talk) 23:03, 24 August 2023 (UTC)Reply

Either I do now or will do never is new easy policy replacing previous one.

Hello QuicoleJR. Can you please suggest what should I do next ? I never had only good to think and do so I need to be back what I was as a reader to stop stressing over something which are not in my control and resume the reading which needs no control of others to lose peace and that is my place to live by default not beyond that. I hope you help me. Time will make everything normal as before and I believe in it. A warrior mind needs to leave so that I get my average mind back and that seems better now and always. I have a lot to learn and work somewhere for livelihood. I avoid to stay comfused that is why I am still trying the clear note whatever it should be.

Please answer me if you know in simple as this is it, this is why it is and this is to do now, not more than these. Writing in a single sentence is enough to give me what I need and I will be at the place where I am a happy reader and I can do nothing if I have no one to talk. I need people first before all and if I didn't get people then every dream will be daydream and every night will be nightmare if I keep dreaming alone. This is reality in my life and I do not want to waste to waite it anymore. You will stop getting my comment once I am answered. You may lie to me if you find it hard to handle by me as you may think if I were someone who may get worsen after knowing it. I will understand the needed message with opposite meaning of your reply and will keep it in mind as original to reply if such someone meets having same situation and ask me .

Hello, while those people who know the guy above mostly know him from mathematics (mostly: how to run a vote with multiple candidates), he was a tzruly liberal thinker. He had such ideas as that the Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen, which was one of the results of the French revolution, should also apply to women (it says: Men are born and remain free and equal in rights), that women should have a right to vote in elections, that black people should have the same rights as white people, that there are no smart women, because women don't get an education similar to those of men,...)

In this change to 1999 Sydney hailstorm, you added some references, but didn't add all the necessary information. The enwiki version of the page uses shortened footnotes. That requires two pieces: the information that you included in the article, plus a list with full information about the sources used. Please add that information to the article, and be sure to include it if you copy this kind of references for any other articles. Note that you need to include sources only for the references you included here. Thanks. -- Auntof6 (talk) 21:18, 13 April 2024 (UTC)Reply
