Your response on Wikipedia:Simple talkEdit

Seriously, this is the best response you can come up? --Lauren600 (talk) 03:13, 23 January 2020 (UTC)

I was trying to get some constructive edits from you before I had to block you. On another note, I honestly know nothing about the Super Bowl other than it happens and has something to do with American Football, so I wouldn't feel comfortable editing it myself.

Page move requestEdit

Can any administrator please move Palestine to Palestine (region) and Palestine (disambiguation) to Palestine to avoid confusion. ColorfulSmoke (talk) 17:16, 6 February 2020 (UTC)

ColorfulSmoke, it seems like it coulc potentially be a controversial move. Please create a discussion at WP:ST to discuss it with the community. Vermont (talk) 17:26, 6 February 2020 (UTC)

Global Association of Economics EducationEdit

Hi. This article is at 5 wikis, predominantly all by the same author, and seems to be 1) a conflict of interest article, and 2) puffery with weak or faked references. I have started the deletion discussion at English Wikipedia, though thought that I should flag the article to a simple Wikipedia admin. Thanks. Billinghurst (talk) 11:05, 15 February 2020 (UTC)

@Billinghurst: I QD A4 (enwp A7) and G11. It's sheer spam (UPE/ puffery etc). Hope an admin agrees. --Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 11:16, 15 February 2020 (UTC)

Autokwix spammersEdit

I just CU-blocked Special:CentralAuth/Nikolay.kozhukharenko and Special:CentralAuth/LiamBrooksElder on English Wikipedia for spamming and sock puppetry. You might want to keep on eye on Special:LinkSearch/https://autokwix.com here. NinjaRobotPirate (talk) 11:18, 20 March 2020 (UTC)

NinjaRobotPirate, thanks! I'll keep watch on it, here and globally. Vermont (talk) 14:04, 20 March 2020 (UTC)

My eMail problemEdit

@Vermont: Is there a way to disable eMail from me WITHOUT blocking me? So I am not tempted? Gale5050 (talk) 02:01, 22 March 2020 (UTC)

No. Just don't press the email button, not that hard. Vermont (talk) 02:34, 22 March 2020 (UTC)

Ok, I will avoid eMailing users and take advantage of user talk pages! Gale5050 (talk) 12:40, 22 March 2020 (UTC)

Being blockedEdit

@Vermont:, do I have a higher chance of being blocked because of what happened on Meta and the English Wikipedia? Gale5050 (talk) 12:28, 22 March 2020 (UTC)

Yes. See WP:ONESTRIKE. Vermont (talk) 15:16, 22 March 2020 (UTC)

No need to comment here every time you send an email, I get push notification on my phone. Vermont (talk) 00:36, 3 April 2020 (UTC)


The "articles is need of copyedit" category is winding down to just articles that would need heavy re-sourcing to fix.

If I wanted to do something really cool here on Simple, really impress people for my unblock request at English, what would you think that should be? What does the site need? I don't have much in the way of techie skills. Darkfrog24 (talk) 13:04, 4 April 2020 (UTC)
