October 2020Edit

  We like and strongly encourage helpful changes to Wikipedia, but an article you created was directly copied and pasted from the main English Wikipedia. Please do not do that. Such articles are usually too complex. They need to be simplified before or immediately after being added to the Simple English Wikipedia. In addition, be sure to include attribution on the article's talk page. Thank you. --IWI (talk) 11:46, 6 October 2020 (UTC)[]

  • Oh sorry about that. I noticed some articles missing, and am trying to help. I will edit the page in a few hours when I get the chance (I have school very soon, so I dont think I can do it now). Thanks, and have a great day ShadowBallX2
    Okay then :) Please simplify the page when you get chance. --IWI (talk) 11:51, 6 October 2020 (UTC)[]
  • Hello. Please do not add text from the English Wikipedia without simplifying it. To learn more about how to do this, please read this page. Also, when copying from the English Wikipedia, you should add attribution on the article's talk page. You can learn how to do this here. Thank you, --IWI (talk) 21:51, 6 October 2020 (UTC)[]
  • Sorry im still getting used to this. Thanks for fixing where I messed up. Have a great day. (ShadowBallX2) 21:56, 6 October 2020 (UTC)[]
    It's totally fine. It can be hard to adjust :) --IWI (talk) 22:14, 6 October 2020 (UTC)[]

  Welcome to Wikipedia. You might not have done it on purpose, but your recent change removed helpful information from Wikipedia. We ask that you do not remove things from pages without giving a good reason in the change summary. If it was a mistake, do not worry. The part of the article you removed has been put back. If you want to try things out, please use the sandbox. If you would like to learn how to help Wikipedia, please see the welcome page. Thank you. what are you doing?!

English Wikipedia articlesEdit

Please do not copy/paste articles from the English Wikipedia. I've noticed you sometimes remove sections, but this is not sufficient to be Simple English. Additionally, we have different requirements in our Manual of Style. Please review these items and make better changes. The last few articles you've copied and pasted on this project contained categories which don't exist, had MOS issues, and contained exact wording matches.

Changes to Bruno FernandesEdit

Hello and welcome to the Simple English Wikipedia, I noticed you made changes to the article about Bruno Fernandes. While changes are welcome, I felt you removed some information from the article, and also added some more complex words instead of simplifying. I also do not feel that changing the sections about his time in Italy from club names to just Italy was useful. I understand your wanting to simplify the content, but this does not mean we have to remove information from the article. I also understand your maybe wanting to improve the style, but in the process the simplicity of the language has sometimes been lost, and this is one of the primary concerns on the Simple English Wikipedia. Do let me know if there was a good reason why you made the changes to the sections. If there wasn't, I suggest we change this back. I will look at what can be done to restore some information to the article while taking your new changes into consideration! Let me know if there is anything I can help with around here - and keep up the contribution on football articles. --Yottie =talk= 18:11, 26 October 2020 (UTC)[]

  • I am glad that someone noticed my contributions to football related articles. As for Bruno Fernandes, I already undid the edit I made. I am sorry for wasting your time with this, and have a great day. ShadowBallX2 (talk) 20:06, 26 October 2020 (UTC)[]
    Hi ShadowBallX2, I'm sorry to see you have reverted your edit. Some of the changes you had made were actually good! I was simply wondering why you had changed the section headers. Do let me know, it would be great to have a discussion about it. You're not wasting my time at all, we're here to build an encyclopaedia! --Yottie =talk= 18:58, 27 October 2020 (UTC)[]
    The reason I decided to change it to just Italy, was that (in my opinion) there wasn't much info about his career in Italy to have a section for each team. I am sorry for the misunderstanding, and am going to edit the page shortly. Have a great day. ShadowBallX2 (talk) 19:09, 27 October 2020 (UTC)[]


Users are allowed to remove warnings from their own talk page, so please do not revert them if they do. Thank you, --IWI (talk) 19:47, 2 November 2020 (UTC)[]

ok. ShadowBallX2 (talk) 19:48, 2 November 2020 (UTC)[]

Soccer stubsEdit

Hello, thanks so much for expansion. However, if they are copied content from enwp, there is a need to attribute, easiest way is to say in change summary "per enwp" or if you wish (and recommended), a permalink to the enwp page will be good. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 19:04, 7 November 2020 (UTC)[]

Ok. Thanks for the advice. ShadowBallX2 (talk) 22:32, 7 November 2020 (UTC)[]

conflict in changesEdit

Sorry, looks like we edited at the same time on Covid-19 :D -- (talk) 21:56, 27 November 2020 (UTC)[]

Its fine. That IP has been doing the same thing under different pages for the past 2 hours. He has done 5 similar pages so far (copying/pasting Google Maps under other names) I have left a message on Wikipedia:Simple talk letting them know about it, and asking if I have been using the correct tag (QD A3) for this. Have a great day, and thanks for helping Simple English Wikipedia. ShadowBallX2 (talk) 21:59, 27 November 2020 (UTC)[]

RfD nomination of Template:ShadowBallXEdit

An editor has requested deletion of Template:ShadowBallX, an article you created. We appreciate your changes, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article meets Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in the nomination (see also "What Wikipedia is not").

Please comment on the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/2020/Template:ShadowBallX and please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also change the article during the discussion to address the nominator's concerns. But you should not remove the requests for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate. Thank you very much. Saroj Uprety (talk) 03:54, 6 December 2020 (UTC)[]

Please note that I have moved the page to User:ShadowBallX/Navbox. You can move it to something else in your userspace of a different name, if you want. Chenzw  Talk  16:32, 7 December 2020 (UTC)[]
Ok thanks. I didn't know User Navboxes existed, so thats why I did it as a template. Thank you for letting me know, and have a great day. ShadowBallX (talk) 17:27, 7 December 2020 (UTC)[]

Minor editsEdit

Hi, just a reminder that updating an article is not a minor change.
Thanks, Belwine💬📜 :) 17:44, 15 January 2021 (UTC)[]

  • Hello. The minor edit was adding something I had forgotten to make in my first edit, and also fixing a minor mistake I made in my first edit. Sorry for the confusion, and have a great day. ShadowBallX (talk) 17:47, 15 January 2021 (UTC)[]
    Oh ok. You too :) Belwine💬📜 13:17, 20 January 2021 (UTC)[]

Peyman KeshavarziEdit

Hello my friend, in the article of Peyman Keshavarzi, I think it is better to transfer the article to their original name, because it was created in Persian with their original name.--2A01:5EC0:9816:3C5B:E46D:1716:DA67:13D8 (talk) 22:09, 21 January 2021 (UTC)[]

  • Hello. Personally, I don't believe it should be under his actual name. However, I will make the full name a redirect to the article. Have a great day. ShadowBallX (talk) 22:16, 21 January 2021 (UTC)[]
Excellent swallowing and another effort to transfer this name to the article because this name has always been transferred to the article.Thanks you.--2A01:5EC0:9816:3C5B:E46D:1716:DA67:13D8 (talk) 22:22, 21 January 2021 (UTC)[]
Just to make sure, you are aware that the page was deleted in September last year? - see this RfD?--Eptalon (talk) 00:18, 22 January 2021 (UTC)[]
I never knew about the RfD from September, since I have only been registered here since October 2020. I'm guessing you are asking since you likely know of the draft I made on enwiki (this), and the issues with the past articles. ShadowBallX (talk) 00:23, 22 January 2021 (UTC)[]
Judging that your creation of the page is entitled "Copying/Pasting the article from RfD", you clearly knew about the recent RfD at the time. You should not have moved this to the mainspace, considering its notability had been discussed by the community previously. --IWI (talk) 17:25, 22 January 2021 (UTC)[]
I am not judging the currently existing article (or the one in your userspace). All I say is: Originally, this was deleted because of poor sourcing, such as a google search not giving useful results. I don't know if this has changed since the article was deleted, a few months back. So when you are done, there should be better souring, or else the article will be deleted again. Given that it has been deleted once, and this is not too far back, this might even be a quick-delete.--Eptalon (talk) 17:39, 22 January 2021 (UTC)[]

Hello, I noticed you deleted a page called Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai, which I created. Deleting that page was an error. I worked hard on this page and it was not copyrighted. So can you please restore that page? Thanks. (talk) 15:03, 30 January 2021 (UTC)[]

(talk page stalker) ShadowBallX is not an admin and cannot help you in undeleting pages. Your page was deleted by Djsasso 1st, and Macdonald-ross 2nd. If you have any questions, ask them, or go to WP:REFUND --Belwine💬📜 15:06, 30 January 2021 (UTC)[]

Kaho Naa Pyaar HaiEdit

You requested that this page be QD'd, using option WP:QD#G4, and Macdonald-ross deleted it. A user brought it to deletion review, and after looking at it I restored the page because option G4 is not applicable in this case. That option is for an article recreated following an RFD, not a QD, and there was no RFD on the page. You are welcome to request QD for a different reason or to take this to RFD. --Auntof6 (talk) 22:05, 30 January 2021 (UTC)[]

(talk page stalker) @Auntof6: Whilst ShadowBallX's reason doesn't apply, it is a copyright violation G12 --Belwine💬📜 22:06, 30 January 2021 (UTC)[]
@Belwine: And it has been re-nominated using that option. However, see my note at deletion review: I didn't find a match in the text, and the text was different from the first version of the page. I'll leave it for another admin to decide if they see a match. --Auntof6 (talk) 22:14, 30 January 2021 (UTC)[]

February 2021Edit

  Hello, ShadowBallX. When you revert a user's changes, like you did earlier, don't forget to leave the user a message on their talk page, especially when reverting vandalism or a test edit. You may find Template:User talk page warnings/table useful when doing this, to let them know that the change was considered inappropriate, and to direct them to the sandbox. Thank you.

  • Ok thanks for letting me know. ShadowBallX (talk) 00:20, 21 February 2021 (UTC)[]


for saving the page --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 01:34, 28 February 2021 (UTC)[]

  • No problem. Whenever I see a vandal create a page that would normally be about association football, my immediate action is always fix the article immediately (another example of it is F.C. BATE Borisov). ShadowBallX (talk) 01:37, 28 February 2021 (UTC)[]
Better than deleting it when you do it! Thanks very much. I did the same for Wagon --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 01:40, 28 February 2021 (UTC)[]


Can you help me create these articles? I noticed you like to make big edits to a lot of football articles.

- 2016-17 La Liga, 2017-18 La Liga, 2018-19 Serie A, 2019-20 Serie A
- Ivan Rakitić, Ivan Perišić

Thanks, Matthewishere0 (talk) 04:13, 2 March 2021 (UTC)[]

  • Sure. I don't mind creating them. ShadowBallX (talk) 11:56, 2 March 2021 (UTC)[]
    Thanks, I appreciate it. I've seen a Lot of red links with footy related content, so over time I might send you more suggestions. Matthewishere0 (talk) 15:21, 11 March 2021 (UTC)[]
    Please do send suggestions. I don't mind helping out where I can. ShadowBallX (talk) 17:23, 11 March 2021 (UTC)[]

More requestsEdit

Matthewishere0 (talk) 16:11, 1 April 2021 (UTC)[]

Sure. I just saw the request, and will work on them once I finish my 1954 in association football page. (currently its in my sandbox). ShadowBallX (talk) 01:13, 2 April 2021 (UTC)[]

Peyman KeshavarziEdit

Hello my friend, Peyman Keshavarzi has joined the Tabriz Tractor Manufacturing team. Why did you return my correct edition?(link).-- (talk) 16:20, 18 March 2021 (UTC)[]

No. You added false information to the article. Adding false info to articles is considered vandalism, and you can be blocked for it. ShadowBallX (talk) 16:22, 18 March 2021 (UTC)[]
My friend, where was the wrong information? I am an Iranian and I added the prohibitions. The agricultural contract has joined tractor manufacturing.-- (talk) 16:24, 18 March 2021 (UTC)[]
Now you see, I was not sabotaging, I added it with resources, and my goal was not sabotage.-- (talk) 16:52, 18 March 2021 (UTC)[]
I'm sorry for assuming you were vandalizing. That page has a history with vandalism, and assumed you were part of it. ShadowBallX (talk) 16:53, 18 March 2021 (UTC)[]
One question, why is this footballer's article not available in English? Do you agree that we can create his article in English with the help of each other?-- (talk) 19:12, 18 March 2021 (UTC)[]
(talk page stalker) There was a consensus on the English Wikipedia to delete the article. See hereBelwine (talk) 19:18, 18 March 2021 (UTC)[]
I have a draft version of the article on enwiki. It can be found here. ShadowBallX (talk) 19:43, 18 March 2021 (UTC)[]
I just realized the IP was blocked on the enwiki for 6 months on September 28, so they wont be able to edit there for the next 10 days. ShadowBallX (talk) 19:47, 18 March 2021 (UTC)[]
I corrected your article a bit in English and added resources to see if it works.I'm not blocked by my mobile internet.
Unfortunately, they also think that sabotage has taken place there. Please return my edits because I have added many useful resources.
Hello my friend, again you are in a hurry, like yesterday, check the sources first, then tag them.--2A01:5EC0:9811:C83F:B4B1:A810:B1F2:4BEE (talk) 13:56, 19 March 2021 (UTC)[]
Hello. The issue with that page isn't the player itself. However, the player fails NFOOTY, and their isn't enough reliable sources for it to pass GNG. ShadowBallX (talk) 13:58, 19 March 2021 (UTC)[]


Hi, ShadowBallX! You’ve been helping out with the vandalism issue here, which is excellent but when you leave warnings, don’t bite them too quickly by leaving level 2, 3, and 4 warnings. When leaving a warning or two, you need to start off with a level 1, then steadily go up if they keep making unconstructive edits. After you give them a level 4 warning and they continue to vandalize, go to WP:VIP where you can ask an admin to block them and ignore from now on. Thanks. Have a good day. --DynamicRobot (talk) 17:57, 20 March 2021 (UTC)[]

  • Hello. I have never actually seen you before, so welcome to Wikipedia. If the user has vandalized before, and has never received a warning, we usually give them a warning based on what the warning level would have been based on previous vandalism. Have a good day. ShadowBallX (talk) 18:01, 20 March 2021 (UTC)[]
  • (talk page stalker) This user is now globally locked btw. You don't actually need to start on a level 1 warning. Sometimes, I start on level 2 warnings if it's clear vandalism. It just depends on what warning you think is necessary. —Belwine (talk) 18:50, 20 March 2021 (UTC)[]

About Kheya Cox bazarEdit

Sir, I am from cox bazar. This organisation work for people since 2000. Because a local organisation get media presence in the time of establishment. So many reference missed. But in future i tried my best to improve this. I hope you consider some things. Thanks. بطل غير معروف (talk) 17:24, 26 March 2021 (UTC)[]

Hello. Note that even though there are references, the article might not meet WP:GNG (our notability guidelines). ShadowBallX (talk) 17:26, 26 March 2021 (UTC)[]
I think you may also add 'need more reference to verify' templates,sir. بطل غير معروف (talk) 17:30, 26 March 2021 (UTC)[]
Give me some times, Please change the tag. بطل غير معروف (talk) 17:32, 26 March 2021 (UTC)[]
The RfD tag on the page is supposed to remain on the article until the RfD is finished. Removing it would be considering vandalism. ShadowBallX (talk) 17:37, 26 March 2021 (UTC)[]

Ok. You could. But please remember that i give government website reference. بطل غير معروف (talk) 17:39, 26 March 2021 (UTC)[]

Bye,sir. You are senior you know most. But as a human i think organisation which work for people may be approved with few reference, like newspaper page. I see many unpopular news paper page with 1 govt. Website reference. I respect your decision. As i new i need your help. Thanks. بطل غير معروف (talk) 17:43, 26 March 2021 (UTC)[]
