Blocked (April Fools)Edit

  • You have been blocked for a period of 1,000,000 Buzzlightyears for not reading this comment, once the block has expired 'finished' you will be allow to edit again. If you think that LEDs are the reason you have been blocked, you may (try to beat the LED bulb) appeal by the template {{unblock|incandescent lightbulb goes here}}. This sentence makes no sense, neither should the block, because APRIL FOOLS!;-) --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 00:27, 1 April 2021 (UTC)

QuestionEdit

Hi, Vermont, could you take a look at this removal of content, it does not seem valid. Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 00:32, 27 April 2021 (UTC)

Handled, thanks! Vermont (talk) 00:57, 27 April 2021 (UTC)
Thanks for the fast reply! Once I saw a meme where a guy copied a whole Wikipedia article, but made sure the article didn't actually exist to avoid being caught. ;P --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 01:01, 27 April 2021 (UTC)

Tiny requestEdit

I'm not sure if you're active on the English Wikipedia, but if you are, I was hoping that you could please quickly correct this typo here:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Inquiry#Albania,_Constantinople,_the_Straits,_and_the_Middle_East

"Meanwhile, in regards to Anatolia, it was advised for an independent Turkish Anatolian state tp be created under a League of Nations mandate, with the Great Power in charge of the mandate being determined later."

It's "*to* be created", not "tp be created". Thank you.

I don't do proxy editing, and I would recommend you do not try. Editors on that project can fix it themselves. Best, Vermont (talk) 21:41, 29 April 2021 (UTC)
OK. Also, just how exactly does one do proper source attribution? For instance, on this article: The Inquiry? Can you please show me how to do this so that I will have a clear example visible and ready to go? Futurist110 (talk) 21:43, 29 April 2021 (UTC)
For...referencing? Or copying from other projects? If it's the latter please see Template:Transwikied. Vermont (talk) 22:19, 29 April 2021 (UTC)
Did I use it correctly right now? For instance, for The Inquiry? Futurist110 (talk) 03:53, 1 May 2021 (UTC)

questionEdit

If "Abuse Filter" was blocked, could Abuse Filter unblock themselves? Just wondering! Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 21:50, 2 May 2021 (UTC)

The abuse filter isn't a person. Vermont (talk) 21:51, 2 May 2021 (UTC)
Yes, but it says they have 'admin' rights... So would the script unblock the filter, or would it stay blocked? --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 21:52, 2 May 2021 (UTC)
The abuse filter does everything server-side, if I remember correctly. It doesn't actually use the administrator userright. Vermont (talk) 21:57, 2 May 2021 (UTC)
Huh, interesting. Oh what does it mean when it says 'blocked the autopromotion of..." ? --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 21:58, 2 May 2021 (UTC)
It means a user triggered a filter that was set to remove the autopromotion (as in, when you hit 10 edits/4 days you become autopatrolled) of users who trigger it. I think. Vermont (talk) 22:06, 2 May 2021 (UTC)
That's what I thought too --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 22:09, 2 May 2021 (UTC)

Additional questionEdit

Do you know if the Simple English Wikipedia actually has anything comparable to Wikipedia's Resource Exchange: Resource Request? Futurist110 (talk) 03:32, 4 May 2021 (UTC)

BlockEdit

hi, Vermont, I've blocked this IPV6 for many vandalism. --Wim b (talk) 14:49, 5 May 2021 (UTC)

IP also has similar behavior to this ip too. Darubrub (Let me know) 14:50, 5 May 2021 (UTC)

Invitation for Functionary consultation 2021Edit

Greetings,

I'm letting you know in advance about a meeting I'd like to invite you to regarding the Universal Code of Conduct and the community's ownership of its future enforcement. I'm still in the process of putting together the details, but I wanted to share the date with you: 27 June, 2021. I do not have a time on this date yet, but I will let you soon. We have created a meta page with basic information. Please take a look at the meta page and sign up your name under the appropriate section.

Thank you for your time.--BAnand (WMF) 15:06, 2 June 2021 (UTC)

QuestionEdit

A while back we had a new user on SEWP (s)he asked if there was a way to change the way it said "my settings" instead of "preferences" in the top menu, I found a solution to that, do you know which user that was? Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 22:00, 27 June 2021 (UTC)

Sorry, I don't remember. Vermont (talk) 22:58, 27 June 2021 (UTC)

Wikipedia in spaceEdit

Does Wikipedia work in outer space? ;) Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 00:05, 17 July 2021 (UTC)

Does the internet work in outer space? Darubrub (Let me know) 00:06, 17 July 2021 (UTC)
Well, if you're connected to the internet, then yes. And, as far as I know, we've only had one edit from space, and in November 2019. Best, Vermont (talk) 00:35, 17 July 2021 (UTC)
Technically speaking, would Aliens be allowed to edit Wikipedia provided they follow the rules? If they actually do edit, that would be real interesting. Also, I did not know that editing Wikipedia in space was even possible! --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 00:58, 17 July 2021 (UTC)
Wikipedia is just a website. Why wouldn't you be able to edit it, as long as you can get an internet connection? --Auntof6 (talk) 01:22, 17 July 2021 (UTC)
Little does everyone know, I am actually a squirrel. Vermont (talk) 02:36, 17 July 2021 (UTC)
Well three billionaires are having a space race right now, and we all know how long they can go without Tweeting is like five minutes, so I think we might be in for some orbiting hotspots. Darkfrog24 (talk) 02:48, 17 July 2021 (UTC)
If I ever get to space, first thing I am going to do is see is vtwp.org works, then I will tell Vermont via IRC in space lol --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 02:58, 18 July 2021 (UTC)
vtwp.org barely works to begin with lol. Vermont (talk) 17:50, 18 July 2021 (UTC)

┌─────────────────────────────────┘
Plot twist: vtwp.org is actually a secret site all universities use to store their tests, so students can't cheat, but the site is secretly ran by students ;P --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 21:50, 19 July 2021 (UTC)
