Double redirects


With the renaming of the Vermont (test) account several times, multiple redirects were created leading to a host of double redirects. As these require ownership or admin access to fix, I thought it best to drop you a line. Pure Evil (talk) 22:08, 6 September 2023 (UTC)Reply

Pure Evil, eep, forgot about that. Thanks for the ping. Vermont 🐿️ (talk) 03:37, 15 September 2023 (UTC)Reply

Is this Right to create articles which are Deleted on English Wikipedia


Hello @Vermont i am here to ask simple question. Is this Right to create articles on Simple English Wikipedia which are already deleted on English Wikipedia because on Sock Puppetry by the same user ? It means Simple English Wikipedia is like a garbage ? i am sorry to say that nowadays this is happening on Simple English Wikipedia I have like proofs Poybo Media [1] The Vach [2]. I am not blaming anyone i am just asking you because you are Senior editor, if this is right then i have no problem. Samaira89 (talk) 08:01, 19 December 2023 (UTC)Reply

Simple English Wikipedia is independent form English wikipedia. An article created needs to meet certain standards, such as that of being notable. The deletion reason 'Created by a blocked or banned user' is rarely used, if the article content is legitimate, and we can find a reason for the article to exist here. As you also see, articles which are simply copied over from EnWP, without much effort to make the language simple, are often deleted right away. So, it really depends on the article, and I think a generalized statement is not possible. Eptalon (talk) 08:23, 19 December 2023 (UTC)Reply
They gotta be simple, that's the word: simple. Then they have to be relevant, and meaningful. Macdonald-ross (talk) 10:19, 19 December 2023 (UTC)Reply

@Bathew Mads Fomo, stop targeting me through your multiple accounts. I marked QD nominations appropriately, while you and your accounts revert them, and then target me. I’m actually sick of this. dotdashmeredith (talk) 23:27, 19 December 2023 (UTC)Reply
I've blocked the sock. Dotdashmeredith, just ignore them. If/when they come back, lmk and I'll just block their new accounts. Vermont (🐿️🏳️‍🌈) 23:34, 19 December 2023 (UTC)Reply
Vermont, I appreciate it. I was just getting worried. Thanks! dotdashmeredith (talk) 00:15, 20 December 2023 (UTC)Reply

Sometimes I'll lose my internet or it will be quite slow for a period of time. I've reset my router now. I simply had something to type which I would've forgotten had I not typed it out SurferSquall (talk) 03:42, 5 February 2024 (UTC)Reply

Double Redirects


Hi Vermont. Hope all is well. I wanted to let you know that you have 8 out of 13 of these on Special:DoubleRedirects. I am going through issue cats and and saw this and do not know if you are still testing or not. Thanks - PDLTalk to me!Please don't eat da 🐑! 15:06, 2 April 2024 (UTC)Reply

Please delete


Since it is a module it cannot be tagged for QD.

Module:Flex columns Reason: It is for an ENWP template only that is not used on SEWP. Thanks, and be well! - PDLTalk to me!Please don't eat da 🐑! 04:16, 8 April 2024 (UTC)Reply

Hi! Maybe put this on AN? I'm not sure if this falls under usual maintenance/housekeeping, and I'd prefer another admin take a look. Vermont (🐿️🏳️‍🌈) 01:58, 14 April 2024 (UTC)Reply
  Done Thanks, and be well! - PDLTalk to me!Please don't eat da 🐑! 02:32, 14 April 2024 (UTC)Reply
I came here from one of the only links to the module. I consider it a T2 case, just with a module. We should probably adjust our deletion policy to allow the deletion of modules for this reason, as they are similar to templates, but in the meantime IAR :P --Ferien (talk) 13:33, 20 April 2024 (UTC)Reply
@Vermont@Ferien: You cannot add a template to a module unfortunately. That’s why I put it here. It doesn’t accept standard wiki code so a nowiki doesn’t work on it. Unless Vermont knows a trick I do not. But this is the only module I found that is strictly for ENWP based on what it does. Thanks, and be well! - PDLTalk to me!Please don't eat da 🐑! 13:41, 20 April 2024 (UTC)Reply
  Comment: Sorry didn’t realize we were on Vermont’s TP. But yes, Ferien, that’s why I was told to put it on AN. You cannot add anything to it so it has to be an AN request. Thanks, and be well! - PDLTalk to me!Please don't eat da 🐑! 13:45, 20 April 2024 (UTC) Sorry for pinging you V……………………mont (those are acorns)Reply
PotsdamLamb, you could alternatively add a QD template to the documentation page, where it would transclude onto the module page. --Ferien (talk) 13:46, 20 April 2024 (UTC)Reply
@Ferien Not all modules have documentation pages just like some templates don’t. If it did, I could try that but then a lot of admins stay far away from that section of wiki. Thanks, and be well! - PDLTalk to me!Please don't eat da 🐑! 13:52, 20 April 2024 (UTC)Reply
And actually no I highly recommend not doing that. Only the doc page will get deleted and not the module. Thanks, and be well! - PDLTalk to me!Please don't eat da 🐑! 13:53, 20 April 2024 (UTC)Reply

Possible copies of deleted enwiki pages by Special:Contributions/Thakor_Sumant_Sinhji_Jhala IPs


Hello, can you check Koli Mahasabha, Nana Farari, Babar Deva, Bandkari, Valoji Bhangare, Bachur Khokani, Patanvadia Koli, Dhavala Bhangre, Devi Movement, Rama Kirve, Koli rebellion, and Koli caste to see if they are copied from enwiki deleted revisions and fit QD A3? I recently handled many QD A3 cases by IPs related to Special:Contributions/Thakor_Sumant_Sinhji_Jhala (w:Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Thakor Sumant Sinhji Jhala), and I believe these pages are related to previous enwiki articles. I look forward to hearing from you. MathXplore (talk) 13:27, 1 July 2024 (UTC)Reply

Possible copies of enwiki deleted pages (w:Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/CadAPL)


Hello, can you check Rukn al-Din Baybars al-Salihi, Wipertus Hugo Rudt de Collenberg, Raouf Al Ayoubi, Shukri Pasha Al-Ayyubi, and Freemasonry in Syria to see if they are copied from enwiki deleted revisions and fit QD A3? I look forward to hearing from you. MathXplore (talk) 11:38, 5 July 2024 (UTC)Reply

@MathXplore: As the deleting admin on enwiki, I'll weigh in here. All of these articles are very similar, but not word for identical the ones deleted from enwiki. There is a one to one mapping of paragraphs in each article to a paragraph in the corresponding deleted article. The wording of each paragraph is a little bit different, but I wouldn't say that one version is more simple than the other. Sir Sputnik (talk) 00:42, 8 July 2024 (UTC)Reply
