Shiny thing for you

The Original Barnstar
Thanks for copyediting Scranton, Pennsylvania. You didn't have to, you just did. That's a commendable attitude. Sebb Talk 13:13, 27 July 2008 (UTC)Reply
Thank you Sebb. :) Another one to add to my collection. I copyedited the article for you, if you can expand it, I might be able to copyedit further. Have fun! -- Ryan†Cross (talk) 13:31, 27 July 2008 (UTC)Reply

I am working on an article but Sebb said I should branch out and not create the article in userspace and I didn't know what he ment. ThePageChanger! 13:40, 28 July 2008 (UTC)Reply
Ryan, i told him not to edit in userspace. Now you're still mad at me? Sebb Talk 13:41, 28 July 2008 (UTC)Reply
Eh? I never mentioned userspace. And I was never mad at you. Anyway, I've replied on, um, someone' talk page. I don't know who. :P -- Ryan†Cross (talk) 13:45, 28 July 2008 (UTC)Reply

I was wondering on the artical Totally Spies!. The leader of WOOP is the guys name Jery? Is that how it's spelled?(Do reply)-- Running  talk , the founder the Wikiproject Anti-Vandalism 05:45, 28 July 2008 (UTC)Reply

Nope, but I fixed it for ya. I fixed it from "Jery" to "Jerry", two "r"s. ;) Thanks, Ryan†Cross (talk) 06:00, 28 July 2008 (UTC)Reply


The above section name was added by User:RyanCross. -- Ryan†Cross (talk) 09:50, 28 July 2008 (UTC)Reply

Was what I did in dedicating an article in your name new to you? afterall, you've been working for what, 1 month and...14 days?

That first change was a bit cynical that I made. I had just found this place, and kind of had a negative attitude about it. How did you have time to read it, and send a witty message back to me right after I changed it? I mean, don't you have other areas to patrol as well?

By th way, I wouldn't have time to edit and stuff. I'm about to start my junior year of highschool, with AP classes and everything. How old are you and where did you go to school?

Now that you have my IP adress, does this mean that anything that I change (for the good, of course) on this website can be seen by you, and be identified as a change I made?

I guess I didn't phrase my question clearly. I was asking if the administrators and editors can identify "me". Like, for example, could You(being RyanCross, not the whole group of what you call Wikignomes) identify that I just made a spelling fix on The Simpsons Web page?

Alright then! what are the + and - numbers for? So, I got +1 for changing the Simpsons Article thingy. What do I win?

K thanks.

Main Page

I would like to offer a few comments for the new main page design. I feel that its great, even better than the EN Wikipedia one. Still, I think you shouldn't centralize all the words in the introduction and selected article boxes. There's also quite a lot of extra space not filled up. That's all for now, just comments anyway, might not be everyone's feelings. Minor Contributer (talk) 09:40, 28 July 2008 (UTC)Reply

Okay, thanks for the advice and suggestions. By the way, we also have this and this. -- Ryan†Cross (talk) 09:50, 28 July 2008 (UTC)Reply
Isn't that the same as what you gave me previously? Minor Contributer (talk) 09:55, 28 July 2008 (UTC)Reply
Oh, I never mind. Yeah, I think so. Anyway, thanks again for the barnstar, and your suggestions on the design. ;) -- Ryan†Cross (talk) 09:56, 28 July 2008 (UTC)Reply


Barnstar Congratulations: You have been given a Barnstar!

The Dark Knight

Languages can be pretty narly stuff, Ryan. Sometimes it looks outright awful, but when you click...something is there. MediaWiki apparently doesn't parse the stuff well in diffs. That IP added a link to th:เดอะ_ดาร์ก_ไนท์_อัศวินรัตติกาล, which as you can see is a legitimate article. Cassandra 01:02, 29 July 2008 (UTC)Reply

Hehe, wow! That's good to know. :) I thought when the IP added "%E0%B9%80%E0%B8%94%E0%B8%AD...", to the article, s/he was just adding random characters. Who knew it was an interwiki? :P Anyway, thanks for the note Cassandra. Your doing better than I thought. ;) By the way, did you ever get a chance to have a close look at the Green Day article? I would like your opinions on it if you have the time. :) Oh yeah, and thanks for removing that broken reference and adding {{fact}}. I found a reference to replace that. -- Ryan†Cross (talk) 02:03, 29 July 2008 (UTC)Reply


How do I request rollback? Do you think I could get it based on what I did at, or would I have to build up a significant history here? Enigmaman (talk) 08:03, 29 July 2008 (UTC)Reply

Hehe, your sadly mistaken. There is no rollback here! :P It seems we have no need for it right now. 2 others and myself even requested it to be added, but it seems we don't need it now. :( Thanks, Ryan†Cross (talk) 08:04, 29 July 2008 (UTC)Reply
So how are people reverting so quickly? They install Twinkle or something? I look at recent changes to see if I can help out by reverting any vandalism, but people do it much faster. Enigmaman (talk) 08:05, 29 July 2008 (UTC)Reply
We do have popups which I use. Only administrators have rollback. There is no non-administrative rollback here. ;) -- Ryan†Cross (talk) 08:08, 29 July 2008 (UTC)Reply

Your recent revert


That is really the anthem... :P Chenzw  Talk  12:07, 29 July 2008 (UTC)Reply

I reverted it before already (got an edit conflict). We don't have WP:TROUT, though. :) Chenzw  Talk  12:10, 29 July 2008 (UTC)Reply

why do I keep getting reverted?

my legitimate edits to Simlish keep getting reverted by you. Why? I'm correcting the information on the page which is false in stating that Simlish is derived from real world languages, it is not. -- (talk) 12:54, 29 July 2008 (UTC)Reply

Can you prove it with a reliable resource/reference? -- Ryan†Cross (talk) 12:55, 29 July 2008 (UTC)Reply
[1] this source about the development of one of the expansion packs says that when the first game was being developed, "they wanted to use a language that couldn't be translated so that its meaning would be left up to the imagination of the player" and that to record it, they just show the character interaction animations to the voice artists who came up with Simlish phrases to match them. -- (talk) 12:59, 29 July 2008 (UTC)Reply
Ah, well, it should have been sourced when you made the edit. That way, people now where it is coming from. Just add that source to the article and you'll be good. Thanks, Ryan†Cross (talk) 13:01, 29 July 2008 (UTC)Reply

Vandal Fighting

Thanks! I normally don't do vandal fighting - I usually just simplify, add references, and other things like that. But the recent changes AJAX tool makes it easy, and I want to get some closure on vandals. Especially when edits like this happen after I revert vandals. By the way, if that IP vandalizes again, could you please add it to WP:VIP? I guess we just get waves of vandalism every once in a while. Anyways, I'm turning in for the night.

Ah, thanks. I just reverted my edits since I did something wrong with the referencing. But all I did was get the year, month and date out of order. Creol, do you mind taking a look at this? It may need some tweaking, so help would be delighted. Thanks, RyanCross (talk) 06:52, 12 August 2008 (UTC)Reply

Reply to email

Thanks for the email. While I believe that I should wait until the 3 month mark, I believe that even though I might have a bit better chance for success in the future (the 3 month mark), I believe that it is not all that big enough of a difference to make a difference. Cheers, Razorflame 01:44, 14 August 2008 (UTC)Reply

I understand. I would be happy to nominate you in exactly around one month from today (that's when I hit the three month mark :-) ). I hope that would be okay with you. Thanks, RyanCross (talk) 01:54, 14 August 2008 (UTC)Reply

Would you mind redesigning my userpage? I see that you're part of a Userpage Design Project on ENWP and my userpage is old, designed by a retired user long ago.

I'd be happy to give you any info needed (colours, boarders etc) and am fine with waiting until you're ready. --Gwib -(talk)- 22:13, 16 August 2008 (UTC)Reply

O noaz, Gwib wants a new user page design? :O Sure, just tell me what you like it too look like in details (and if you want, we can chat it over at facebook :D). Thanks, RyanCross (talk) 22:18, 16 August 2008 (UTC)Reply
Lol "noaz" :P. I'll turn chat on. --Gwib -(talk)- 22:19, 16 August 2008 (UTC)Reply
Right, as for colours I don't really mind as long as they go together. I like the idea of a two-column userpage (like my one ATM or like w:User:Phaedriel). I love the idea of tabs (like w:User:Jossi) but am not interested in a header. I wouldn't mind incorporating the ad I have for the Wikiproject into the userpage (you can change the colours if necessary). Need anything else, ask. --Gwib -(talk)- 22:27, 16 August 2008 (UTC)Reply
p.s. For tabs, small like Jossi's. Matching colours if possible. With something like Userpage - Awards - Milestones - Wikiproject. Keep userboxes, quotes and pictures on same page. --Gwib -(talk)- 22:36, 16 August 2008 (UTC)Reply
Barnstar Congratulations: You have been given a Barnstar!

For the obvious. --Gwib -(talk)- 20:49, 17 August 2008 (UTC)Reply

"For the obvious"? That will look pretty vague on my user page, but okay. And your welcome. :) -- RyanCross (talk) 21:06, 17 August 2008 (UTC)Reply

Very well, but the archive seems to be fully protected and can only be edited by administrators.

Alphabetical Lists in Categories

Hi RyanCross, Help needed! I have added a category to some pages I have been working on. On the category page the list is in alphabetical order, but my entries are under first name order, and other peoples are in surname order. How do I fix it? The page is - my entries are for Ben Hall, John Gilbert and Ned Kelly. Peterdownunder (talk) 08:24, 24 August 2008 (UTC)Reply

Sorry, but I have no clue at all on how to fix that... though I might look around it. Thanks, RyanCross (talk) 18:33, 24 August 2008 (UTC)Reply
I'll butt in here with the answer. Use {{BD|1837|1865|Hall, Ben}} for Ben Hall. This will give you the 1837 Births , 1865 deaths categories, and also sort it by surname. I have done that one, but the rest still need sorted. You can leave out the death date, but you still need to put in the | for example {{BD|1837||Hall, Ben}} If you need any more help, give me a shout! Kennedy (talk) 08:08, 25 August 2008 (UTC)Reply

Simple form of "criticized" and "thrived"

Hi, do you know what will be the simple form of "criticized" and "thrived"? This is about the article Anti-tobacco movement in Nazi Germany. --Otolemur crassicaudatus (talk) 18:33, 24 August 2008 (UTC)Reply

I'm not too sure about "thrived", but the best thing I can think of when writing a simple form of "criticized" is instead saying something like, "saying what is wrong with something". For example: In a sentence, it should look like, "He said what is wrong with her", instead of, "He criticized her". Sounds good? -- RyanCross (talk) 19:00, 24 August 2008 (UTC)Reply
Thrive --> increase? Got better/bigger? More of? --Gwib -(talk)- 19:14, 24 August 2008 (UTC)Reply
Yeah, that is good idea, I have changed the word "criticized" per above and used "got better" instead of "thrive". --Otolemur crassicaudatus (talk) 03:42, 25 August 2008 (UTC)Reply
Great to hear it! And thanks for the help Gwib. ;) -- RyanCross (talk) 06:20, 25 August 2008 (UTC)Reply


Good Morning/Day/Evening/Night! (pick up to three) - I hear you are good with userpages. I'm not looking for a full reworking, but I was wondering if you could fix the top part of my userpage, with my two images, and the welcome sign. I put it in a table, but it looks fugly, I couldn't get them to line up otherwise. Any ideas? There's a barnstar in it for you :) Cheers!

You may want to re-phrase that. Ask nicely. ;) Kennedy (talk) 10:37, 26 August 2008 (UTC)Reply
Alrighty then, thanks for asking anyway. :-) StaticFalcon, please do no keep asking me to redesign your user page, as I was already going to reply to your first message but I have a limited of time on Wikipedia due to real life. But since you retired, I'm can't really redesign your user page. And you only retired because two people didn't think you would be a good admin. That doesn't mean people don't want you were and that your not good. Though, I believe you can be a great contributer! You just haven't shown it just yet. But like I said, since you retired, there's no use in redesigning your main page if you've "left". And again, you can be a really good contributer! You just haven't shown in yet. ;) Thanks, RyanCross (talk) 00:52, 27 August 2008 (UTC)Reply
By the way why can't IP users have user pages (StaticFalcon's new IP (talk) 20:01, 27 August 2008 (UTC))Reply

Speaking of user pages, what do you think of mine? I created it myself, so it's probably not perfect. But I didn't copy anything from anybody else, and I didn't steal Gwib's tab design. I created it via here (somewhat, very altered) and other things I've created on Test Wikipedia. Anyway, it took a while, what do you think? — AE (talk) 02:35, 27 August 2008 (UTC)Reply
Looks good. I see blue is your favored color in most places. :-) Though, don't you think there are too many tabs? Looks a bit squished, IMO. -- RyanCross (talk) 03:19, 27 August 2008 (UTC)Reply

Cause and effect

Recently, you "cleaned up" to section headings in the article Asperger Syndrome. It took me a while to notice the problem that you had created. You changed "What causes Asperger Sydrome?" to Causes, and "How does Asperger Syndrome affect a person?" to Affects.

No. The second sentence cannot possibly be summed up in the word "affects". You are plainly confusing the word "affect" which is a verb, with the word "effect" which is a noun. You can talk about "cause and effect" but you can't talk about "cause and affect".

The question "How does Asperger Syndrome affect a person?" can be translated in a single word as "Symptoms". But this is not Simple English. However, I will use it, and reinstate the question as well! Amandajm (talk) 07:53, 27 August 2008 (UTC)Reply

Hey there. I was wondering if you could do me a favor. I'm trying to get the article Green Day I expanded from this to the article's current state to WP:GA status.

No problem. Here's a tip: If you don't know if an article is real or not, check en.wikipedia and Google. They usually show some useful things. ;) And I've participated in the PVGA, though, I just couldn't support. Nice article though. :-) -- RyanCross (talk) 10:41, 1 September 2008 (UTC)Reply
Looked like it was failing there, so I closed the request and moved it to PGA. If it doesn't pass that... Anyway can you vote there please if it's not too much trouble. Cheers. FSM Noodly? 10:53, 1 September 2008 (UTC)Reply
Eh, I think I'll wait on this one. I would just like others to comment first, just so I can get some other opinions on it first which would be able to help me decide my !vote. Hope that's okay. :-) Cheers, RyanCross (talk) 10:55, 1 September 2008 (UTC)Reply

Sorry for bothering you with the RfA thing. Please forgive me. Falcon  Shock me!  23:29, Monday September 1 2008 (UTC)
No problem. In the future, just remember to ask for permission first. :-) -- RyanCross (talk) 23:31, 1 September 2008 (UTC)Reply
OK I'll take a wikibreak and think about what I did. Falcon  Shock me!  23:31, Monday September 1 2008 (UTC)
You don't have to. All you have to do is move on and continue from it. :-) -- RyanCross (talk) 23:33, 1 September 2008 (UTC)Reply
I was gonna retire again but I decided to just cool off. Static  Electrify My Thoughts  23:36, Monday September 1 2008 (UTC)
Well, I'm probably going to have an RfA in a few weeks. And it wasn't a "boneheaded" move at all. I'm okay with it, so no need to take a break because of it. Well, I guess you won't be participating because of your break until October. Have fun, RyanCross (talk) 23:38, 1 September 2008 (UTC)Reply
OK but I might log in as one of my Public accounts for your RfA. (talk) 23:47, 1 September 2008 (UTC)Reply

Ah, you've finished creating the red-links. I was just about to help you! :) - I did create one article, and only found one two typos! Well done! Kennedy (talk) 08:10, 2 September 2008 (UTC)Reply


I have also made some comments at your review :) Keep up the good work!
Barnstar Congratulations: You have been given a Barnstar!

For all your hard work, I, Kennedy, am proud to award you this lovely (albeit green) barnstar! *applause* Kennedy (talk) 08:43, 3 September 2008 (UTC)Reply

I was also wondering, (sorry for all the posts here) if you could leave some comments on my review? Kennedy (talk) 15:28, 3 September 2008 (UTC)Reply
Thanks for the barnstar, Kennedy. :-) I've replied on my editor review page. And of course! I'll be happy to review you. It says in big bold text anyway at WP:ER, "When asking for a review, please consider reviewing another editor." But just like you did, it will have to take me some time to make a proper review. But because of real life events, I'm not exactly sure when I'll be able to make my review, but it should be within this month. -- RyanCross (talk) 00:38, 4 September 2008 (UTC)Reply
No worries. :) Kennedy (talk) 08:01, 4 September 2008 (UTC)Reply
Please review me. Plus you need my help for anything? StaticFalcon -=Electrify My Thoughts=- 02:18, Thursday September 4 2008 (UTC)
Thanks, but I don't need help with anything right now. :-) And my last review on you on your other account hasn't really changed much. So just stick with that for now. Thanks for asking! -- RyanCross (talk) 01:23, 5 September 2008 (UTC)Reply

Hi, I have done a bit of work on the SPL article, and was wondering if you could have a look through it. I am looking for it to be a GA. Thanks Kennedy (talk) 10:57, 5 September 2008 (UTC)Reply


You have one. -- American Eagle (talk) 02:49, 7 September 2008 (UTC)Reply

One from me too. :-) Giggy (talk) 14:03, 9 September 2008 (UTC)Reply

RE:Closing RfDs

The one I closed was easier simply to redirect; it was a duplicate, so could probably have been QD'd for housekeeping. Therefore, as it wouldn't actually require a deletion, there wasn't much point in keeping it open. Wrong place, you see?

Good job

Hey just wanted to let you know that the Baseball page looks great. I know you mentioned it earlier but can you participate here? Thanks, --CPacker (talk) 06:13, 11 September 2008 (UTC)Reply

Ya I saw that, keep after those vandals!.--CPacker (talk) 06:19, 11 September 2008 (UTC)Reply
Okay, I have given my comments here. Minor or Prime 08:27, 11 September 2008 (UTC)Reply


Its official! Baseball is not American, its British: link to BBC News

Local historians in Surrey have confirmed evidence that baseball was played in the UK more than 20 years before American independence.

A diary that documents a game being played in Guildford in 1755 has been verified by Surrey History Centre.

I thought it was Australian! :P Giggy (talk) 04:24, 13 September 2008 (UTC)Reply
About your PVGA, I also think you ought to add in interwiki links, if there are any to be added. I just don't really believe that only EN and Simple Wikipedia have articles on "Baseball Uniform". Perhaps there are more? Minor or Prime 10:23, 13 September 2008 (UTC)Reply
VGA criteria says it needs at least one interwiki link. There is only one out there. If there were more, the bots would have added it. But like I said, VGA requires at least one interwiki link. -- RyanCross (talk) 10:27, 13 September 2008 (UTC)Reply
The bots know what interwiki links to create? How do they think on thier own? Minor or Prime 10:28, 13 September 2008 (UTC)Reply
They are programmed that way I guess. I'm not an expert on bots. Maybe reading en:WP:BOT might help? -- RyanCross (talk) 10:31, 13 September 2008 (UTC)Reply
I just thought there ought to be more bots. Minor or Prime 10:35, 13 September 2008 (UTC)Reply

Question re: "complex" template

Hi. Only came to SimpleWP today accidentally but think its great. Just done my second edit - Underwater. Noticed that you had tagged it "complex". I have two requests (though they are not at all urgent): (1) Can you have a quick look at the page comparison before my first edit and the page as it is now and just tell me briefly if I'm on the right track with editing in Simple? (2) Could the template be removed or does the article need more work? (I guess I'm really only asking one question!). thanks Glen Dillon (talk) 09:35, 13 September 2008 (UTC)Reply

Let's take a look, shall we? This edit looks fine to me. Much simpler than before. I simplified it further and then removed the {{complex}} tag. You did good as a newcomer to simple. Nice work! :-) Thanks, RyanCross (talk) 09:51, 13 September 2008 (UTC)Reply

J League

Just regarding this - The J League is the Japanese league, the SPL template only lists Scottish teams etc. I've removed it so it doesn't confuse. :) Kennedy (talk) 20:40, 13 September 2008 (UTC)Reply

Heh, whoops, wrong article. No problem. Cheers, RyanCross (talk) 20:42, 13 September 2008 (UTC)Reply


Ok, will do!--CPacker (talk) 07:18, 14 September 2008 (UTC)Reply

Eh, thanks Microchip. :-) Uh, I don't really want the admin trophy, since I basically said in my RfA, adminship in not a trophy! I never knew an image like that existed... Anyway, I don't know about bureaucratship. I can do well with just being an administrator for now. :-) Yours, RyanCross (talk) 08:34, 21 September 2008 (UTC)Reply
Well, there's still time. And I didn't know either, until I searched... good luck, well done. Microchip  talk 09:05, 21 September 2008 (UTC)Reply

I iz special. Anyways, surely the question you should be asking is "How did Microchip08 manage to get hold of a screenshot of adminstrator tabs without actually being an admin? :P.

(un)Congratumalations! :) Now to delete the main page... Kennedy (talk) 11:04, 21 September 2008 (UTC)Reply

Main Page is too ambitious, try deleting the AN first (for genuine reasons!). I did that yesterday and the day before yesterday. Chenzw  Talk  11:10, 21 September 2008 (UTC)Reply
Nah, I'll let the Main Page alone. Maybe I should delete WP:ST? Has a much larger history. ;-) Anyways, thank you, Kennedy. -- RyanCross (talk) 19:04, 21 September 2008 (UTC)Reply

Nice job. I knew you would do it. But why #2 and not the one I nominated you for? StaticFalcon -=Electrify My Thoughts=- 19:10, Sunday September 21 2008 (UTC)

Thanks Static! I was waiting until I hit the 3 month mark. When you nominated me, I was at about 2.5 months. It's because WP:CFA suggests that a candidate for adminship should be at least 3 months old as preferred. -- RyanCross (talk) 19:16, 21 September 2008 (UTC)Reply
Oh. Anyway do you think I'll make it sometime soon? Static -=Electrify My Thoughts=- 19:17, Sunday September 21 2008 (UTC)
Uh, I think the best person to judge that is you. ;-) I still think you have a lot to learn, even just the basics, but that's only what I think. Just remember that adminship is no big deal, and it shouldn't be a primary goal for anyone. Articles should be much higher goals. Thanks, RyanCross (talk) 19:23, 21 September 2008 (UTC)Reply
OK. Well Mr.Admin, have you checked out WP:SIMPLE TALK yet? Static -=Electrify My Thoughts=- 19:25, Sunday September 21 2008 (UTC)
