Intelledox

Hello Mizu onna sango15! Could you please explain the Intelledox page was deleted? The page was created since the company is well known in Australia and Asia Pacific region, and provides unique software for enterprises. The article has been written in a very neutral tone, and did not contain advertising, the information was taken from the sources of reference, including Austrade. Intelledox has links to it in other articles (e.g. Document Automation, Intelligent Documents) that were created by other users. Can you please tell me how to re-write the article so that it wouldn't get deleted? Thank you very much in advance! —Preceding unsigned comment added by Doctomation (talkcontribs) 00:51, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

I am not Mizu onna sango15, but I guess I can help you. I think WP:Your first article will be help to you. Reliable Forevertalk 23:57, 7 January 2009 (UTC)
I have deleted (and salted, I should also add) Intelledox because of its promotional tone. When phrases like "they aim to improve the quality of..." or "Intelledox strives to offer the best in..." (just examples) it makes it seem as though you are trying to promote the company. If you re-write the article in a subpage of your userspace while keeping in mind WP:N, WP:NPOV, and WP:PEACOCK (and it looks good as far as reliable sources, notability, and neutrality), I will unprotect the title and let you re-create it. If you need any further help, feel free to ask. Cheers, —Mizu onna sango15Hello! 04:54, 8 January 2009 (UTC).

Mizu onna sango15, thanks a lot for your advice, it's really helpful. I'll try to rewrite it, may be add some limitations as well. Cheers,--Doctomation (talk) 02:59, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

Reliable Forever, thanks to you too, I've read the article before though. Sometimes it's just hard to follow everything, esp for the first time. I'll try to improve. Cheers, --Doctomation (talk) 02:59, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

Not a problem. I'll pop in periodically to check your progress. —Mizu onna sango15Hello! 03:55, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

Homebuy

Hello may I ask why you deleted the page for "Homebuy". It was not advertising. How can a government backed scheme that is not exactly profitable, be seen as advertising? I found this page to be very informative since I am currently struggling to get a mortgage as a first time buyer!? It outlined all of teh options for first time buyers who cannot aford to apply for a 100% mortgage outright, and listed all of the different schemes and locations. Surely if there were sections that were advertising particular 3rd parties then it would have been better to delete these sections of the article and not the entire thread! Alot of it, was as I say, VERY useful.

Please give your reasons...

I am new to being a user on Wikipedia, thanks richey856 —Preceding unsigned comment added by Richey856 (talkcontribs)

Welcome to Wikipedia. I wish you the best of luck in getting accomodated here, Richey856.
Your article, Homebuy, met criterion "G11" of the speedy deletion criteria as an article that appeared to advertise its subject (or some other entity).
Whether it was 'useful' or not, the article sounded like an advertisement, so I deleted it according to Wikipedia policy. Unfortunately, the subject of a page need not be a profitable organisation to be classified as spam. Please see the aformentioned page of the speedy deletion criteria for a general idea of why it was removed. Simply put, it did not read like an article of an encyclopaedia, it read like a website for the organisation, or a commercial. Wikipedia is not here to advertise your company; its purpose is to merely provide encyclopaedic information on notable subjects.
If you like, I can provide you with a copy of your deleted article for your (or your company's) use, but it does not look like it will be undeleted and placed back on Wikipedia. Please see WP:SPAM, WP:CSD, /So I deleted your page, and WP:YFA for additional information on my reasons.
Sorry about this, and I sincerely hope this does not affect your editing experience here. —Mizu onna sango15Hello! 07:47, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

Adoption?

Hi, would you adopt me? —Preceding unsigned comment added by CyrillicNews (talkcontribs) 21:46, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

Sure! There's always room for one more. Is there anything in particular you would like to know, then? —Mizu onna sango15Hello! 07:23, 10 January 2009 (UTC)
Does my most recent edit look ok to you? It was minor, but I read that's how I should start, and I thought that my changes were improvements. What do you think? And is my asking for you to look that over ok?—CyrillicNews (talk) 21:47, 12 January 2009 (UTC)
Nope, no problem. It's not bad for a start, but some of the changes you made didn't really need to be changed. You'll get the hang of it, don't worry. —Mizu onna sango15Hello! 22:06, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

ROFL

Look: I made the sandbox look like it was a banned user/indef blocked user and sockpuppeteer at the same time! LOL. Here is the diff [1]] LOL! Bad,Bad Sandbox (jk) :D . Oh well, poor sandbox. The sandbox is lucky that someone will write over that soon XD . Reliable Forevertalk 00:12, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

Also I wrote this on the talk page (of the sandbox) : [2]. Lolz! Well I feel bad for the sandbox but he was made for testing >:D. Reliable Forevertalk 00:20, 10 January 2009 (UTC)
Ahaha! That evil smile at the end of your comment cracked me up. I didn't even know that was an emote! —Mizu onna sango15Hello! 07:24, 10 January 2009 (UTC)
My edit summary on the talk page of the sandbox was (That's right sandbox, you're banned! >:D) and yes, >:D is an emoticon. It's an evil emoticon, a very evil one. It basically means an evil grin. Reliable Forevertalk 13:26, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

A talk page used for harrassment....

See User talk:The cheapo. He is blocked for a period of 48 hours (because of incivilty) and he practically uses his talk page as a center of harrassment to the users that give him warnings. His talk page needs to be protected, or at least semi-protected, so he will stop for a while. Please look in to this. Apparently he will only listen to you if your an administrator. He has certainly broke a lot of Civilty rules and at this point I think he broke ALL of them. Thanks, Reliable Forevertalk 13:24, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

And if he's unblocked by the time you read this, please erase all the uncivil attacks he has been using on his talk page and give him a warning for that. Reliable Forevertalk 16:16, 10 January 2009 (UTC)
I just don't know what else to say about this. It is a problem, and it needs to be solved. Reliable Forevertalk 18:14, 10 January 2009 (UTC)
(Responding here, hope no-one minds!) RF, we know that some users are bound to get a little cross when they've been blocked, and admins generally let them blow off a bit of steam (within reason) on their talkpage. No-one much is going to see it after all. However, The cheapo's latest talkpage comments to you were completely unacceptable, and they'd already been warned by another admin, so I've given them a permanent holiday.
If you don't mind some friendly advice, in future it might be best if you stayed away from the talk pages of users like that after they've been blocked. I know it's difficult to walk away sometimes, especially when a user is being as offensive as that one, but even leaving them polite messages (and yours wasn't that polite!) might be seen as provoking them. It's best to let the blocking or reviewing admin handle it. All the best, EyeSerenetalk 20:16, 10 January 2009 (UTC)
Okay. Reliable Forevertalk 20:29, 10 January 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for understanding ;) EyeSerenetalk 21:36, 10 January 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for helping me out here, EyeSerene. I'm not usually available during weekdays until 5 PM, so it's nice to know when RF comes with a problem there's someone to take over. :-) Reliable, you have been a great help here, really. Just remember; sometimes you have to give them a little space. —Mizu onna sango15Hello! 03:18, 11 January 2009 (UTC)

Your username...

I know Mizu means water and Sango means coral but what does Onna mean? Reliable Forevertalk 23:21, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

Onna, 'woman'. Generally, though, (unless you're talking about the kanji, which I intended in my username before I found out we could only use latin scripts), you should use onna-no-hito; onna sounds more harsh and (in Japanese slang) translates as 'chick' or 'wench'. —Mizu onna sango15Hello! 03:39, 11 January 2009 (UTC)
So it means Water Woman Coral all together? Reliable Forevertalk 12:32, 11 January 2009
I think you should know in particalar is that User:CyrillicNews has a section on his talk page that you might should see. Here it is: [3] Reliable Forevertalk 12:39, 11 January 2009 (UTC)
Yes, it was originally going to be 'water woman of coral, but I didn't want it to be too long. SoWhy still thinks it's too lengthly. ;-) —Mizu onna sango15Hello! 14:55, 11 January 2009 (UTC)
I didn't notice that! Thank you, RF. —Mizu onna sango15Hello! 14:55, 11 January 2009 (UTC)
Your welcome. I learned a little bit of Japanese from watching anime. I have a question. When your linking diffs how do you get a word on the diff (i.e here) instead of 1? Reliable Forevertalk 15:23, 11 January 2009 (UTC)
When you are making any external link, you can substitute the number for a word or phrase (or anything, really) by using a space. For example, for an external link to the Wikipedia article about foo, you would key in [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foo ABCDEFGHIJK]. Results in ABCDEFGHIJK. —Mizu onna sango15Hello! 15:44, 11 January 2009 (UTC)
What's a SHA real life identity thing? Reliable Forevertalk 15:56, 11 January 2009 (UTC)
That is called a hash sequence (see Template:User committed identity). It is used to protect my Wikipedia identity; those jumbled up letters are actually an encrypted message, a sort of code, that says something about my identity (my name, email, etc.). It's a little confusing, I know.
Usually, when someone hacks into a person's account, the person who got hacked is unfortunately blocked (indefinitely) to protect the Wiki from any damage that could be caused by the hacker. With committed identity, I can claim on my user talk page that it's me, the real Mizu, after changing my password and making sure the hacker can't get into my account anymore. Committed identity is basically how they prove it's really me. I tell them what my secret phrase is, and they run that SHA code that you saw through an encryptor to match it with the phrase I told them. If it matches, I would have to be the real Mizu, because no one else could know my message.
Ideally, you put your real name and contact information into your message then run it through an encryptor to code the message. If you need a good encryptor, I can give you a link, but make sure your parents are okay with you using your name. Once you've done that, just take the code and paste it into the template. After that, your account will be that much safer in the event of a compromisation.
Did that help? —Mizu onna sango15Hello! 16:17, 11 January 2009 (UTC)
I still have questions:

1. Can't a hacker (if they hack into your account) see the template on your userpage and use it to pretend to be you? 2. Wouldn't the hacker and the administrator (Who is reviewing your un-block request) know exactly who you are? Reliable Forevertalk 16:36, 11 January 2009 (UTC)

Well, one: if you did everything right after your account was hacked, such as immediately changing your password if possible and taking other preventative measures, the hacker will not be able to use it to pretend to be you because they will no longer have access to your account, hopefully.
Second, the admin/hacker would know who your account is, (e.g., Mizu onna sango15 or Reliableforever), but not your personal information such as your email address, first and last name, initials, etc. Only you or your relatives would know that, and unless you told them (which you shouldn't ever) they would not know the exact phrasing in your secret message. So, they may know that your name is Michelle Whatshername and that your birthday is the sixth of June in 1988, but they do not know that your secret message is the exact text 'My full name is Michelle Whatshername, born June 6th, 1988 and my email address is example_address@gmail.com'. —Mizu onna sango15Hello! 16:48, 11 January 2009 (UTC)

Nobody did anything about something.

Nobody did anything about this It violates WP:Civil. Not to mention it also violates WP:NPA. Apparently User:Another-anomaly, User:J miester25 and IP address [[4]] are ganging up on User:Alastairward. I don't get this, but User:Another-anomaly created an attack page againt User:Alastairward (it's listed in the Miscellany for deletion ) and on the talk page of it User:Another-anomaly states that if it's an attack he'll take it out then he states "I take that back. I don't care if my account gets deleted." And by deleted I'll assume he means "blocked". Reliable Forevertalk 16:10, 11 January 2009 (UTC)

Given that it was months ago, there is nothing to do. Generally speaking, since it happened so long ago and the issue isn't still aflame, we can just leave it as-is. You were right in that it was very incivil, however. —Mizu onna sango15Hello! 16:21, 11 January 2009 (UTC)

Important

I may be inactive for a long time because of my computer. Just a notice so you don't think I left Wikipedia. Reliable Forevertalk 17:58, 11 January 2009 (UTC)

I am not saying this WILL happen, but there's a strong possibilty it might. I added a notice on both my userpage and talk page. Reliable Forevertalk 18:06, 11 January 2009 (UTC)
No problem, let me know when the issues subside. —Mizu onna sango15Hello! 18:14, 11 January 2009 (UTC)
I certainly hope it doesn't happen. But I will tell you when it's over. BTW, I have my own Wikihumor thing. It's in my first sandbox. All the pages was on my watchlist except number 5 and 9, I saw those through recent changes. (I check the history of the pages I am watching, lol) Reliable Forevertalk 18:27, 11 January 2009 (UTC)

The cheapo... (Again)

Even though EyeSerene indef. blocked his account, he recently made a sockpuppet User:LOL 00000000! in order to continue harassing me. He only made an edit to my talk page, (which was a threat) and I reported him to Intervention against vandalism, where he was blocked indefinitly. Please watch my talk page history, because that's obviously were you'll find more sockpuppets. I don't need a checkuser to prove that he is the cheapo because when he made a threat to my talk page, he initially said he was back. Please leave a note on his recent sock, LOL 00000000!'s talk page saying to please stop or something. Note that he probably will make more socks, do what he said on his talk page, which was "You will NOT win this fight"Reliable Forevertalk 21:31, 11 January 2009 (UTC)

I've watchlisted your talkpage - if vandalism becomes a problem on your pages we can think about protecting them, but usually the vandals get bored fairly quickly (especially if you do what you did, which was to just undo their edit without commenting; they're often just after attention). EyeSerenetalk 14:55, 12 January 2009 (UTC)
I have also added your page to my watchlist. Unfortunately now you're having computer problems and I'm held up with school work. Ack. I'll watch closely, though. —Mizu onna sango15Hello! 17:17, 12 January 2009 (UTC)
Completely unrelated, but it always sounds slightly odd to me when non-Brits use the word 'school' to refer to college/university etc. In the UK 'school' is the compulsory period of education from 3(ish) to 16 years (and possibly up to 18 depending on the route taken). I get this vision of adults in shorts, blazers and caps... :P EyeSerenetalk 17:42, 12 January 2009 (UTC)
Hahaha! That's funny, because (don't remember about the lower 48) here in Alaska even getting one's doctorate can be called 'attending school'. Now, that sounds a little weird to me—but I thought that since I'm going for my masters it'd sound less juvenile. ;-) —Mizu onna sango15Hello! 05:53, 13 January 2009 (UTC)
Okay thanks Mizu and EyeSerene. If he makes another block-evading sockpuppet just to harass me again, I think I will immeadiatley report him to the AIV. Though I might not notice it, (because I have to be in school) but if I don't notice it right away (because I'm logged off or in school or something) it's good to know other people are watching my talk page. :) Reliable Forevertalk 21:45, 12 January 2009 (UTC)
And there's a big problem... His IP's block expires tommorrow at 18:21 (Wikipedia Server time) and I will be in school! I need someone watching my talkpage around 18:10. Reliable Forevertalk 22:41, 12 January 2009 (UTC)
I added your page to my watchlist. J.delanoygabsadds 22:53, 12 January 2009 (UTC)
Thanks! Reliable Forevertalk 22:55, 12 January 2009 (UTC)

Re:Archives

Yeah I did have a bot that archived my talk page, but instead of it being archive 1 it was archive 3! So instead, I am going to archive it myself and fix this number malfunction. I think it was because of a mistake, but anyhow when archive one is done I'll swap it with archive 3 and when archive 2 is done, I'll swap it with archive 3. But I am not displaying my archives when there's a number-error. (It took me 20 minutes to think this all out, lol) Reliable Forevertalk 12:22, 13 January 2009 (UTC)

Romanized Japanese

Hello Mizu. I was wondering, do you know Romanized Japanese? (I am wondering because I want to know what some words mean) And plus I am pretty sure there is no such thing as a Romanized Japanese translator (or one that's accurate) so do you know Romanized Japanese? Reliable Forevertalk 17:46, 17 January 2009 (UTC)

Yes. In Katakana, your username is リライアボ フレヴァ, (variants are possible) but when romanised, it is "Riraiabo Fureva" or "Riraiabo Fureba". —Mizu onna sango15Hello! 04:12, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

Extreme computer problems

As if now, I am having Extreme computer problems. Everytime I try to edit Wikipedia, the tab is not responding (I don't know if this will happen when I try to add a section to your talk page) but it is at extreme level. Unfortuantly, my computer is getting worse every 10 days. Here is what I can't do:

  • Can't edit anything without the not responding mess
  • Can't copy (unless I use the hard way)
  • Can't use mouse (except if I am using the left button, which is the only button that works)

I don't know why it's acting like this. But I am just leaving a notice about this whole mess. Reliable Forevertalk 17:15, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

Ouch! If I knew anything about computers, I'd be able to help you out, but I really don't! ES was able to help you with emulators. Maybe he can help out with this? —Mizu onna sango15Hello! 22:03, 19 January 2009 (UTC)
I felt a disturbance in the Force... RF, it sounds like your computer has picked up an infection or two. Is it junk-free and protected against malware and viruses? The first thing I'd do is check that it is, and that it's clean. You can do this by:
  • Downloading, installing and running Ccleaner to clean out your unneeded files and tidy up the Windows Registry.
  • Running whatever updates and antivirus and/or malware scans you have available. If you don't have any antivirus etc protection (or don't trust what you've got), there are some excellent free replacements you can use. Assuming you're running XP or Vista and have no anti-virus software running already, I'd recommend the Comodo Internet Security Suite if you want an all-in-one solution, though there are plenty of alternatives if you hunt around. If you already have a/v software but want to use something different, you need to remove the old one first - never have two running at the same time, because they conflict with each other.
  • You also need realtime spyware protection - Windows Defender is not too bad, if you don't already have it (it comes as part of Vista but not XP).
  • You should probably also check that your Device drivers are up-to-date and working (depending on your operating system, it will be something like right-click "My Computer" > Properties > Hardware > Device Manager).
If none of that helps, you may need to do a full system restore - hope you've made backups of anything you don't want to lose ;)
Hope this helps, EyeSerenetalk 09:31, 20 January 2009 (UTC)
I'm sure that helped a load, ES. :-) As for me, I can't tell bytes from binary code, so I'm no use. Sigh. Thank you Stalker-Serene! —Mizu onna sango15Hello! 03:26, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

List of Popotan episodes

I know your busy right now, but I am requesting for when you get back, if no one else has replied, to see if you can do a copyedit of the afore mentioned article. I put it up for a FLC and the large reason it failed was my inability to find 1 person who was outside the WP:ANIME peer review section (as specticially requested) to do a copyedit on it despite numerous attempts.じんない 00:55, 21 January 2009 (UTC)

Looks like someone beat me to the punch but if nothing happens in a day I'll go straight ahead and edit. Thanks! —Mizu onna sango15Hello! 03:33, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
Alright. In any case, if not, probably the main article Popotan and possibly the character article, List of Popotan characters might need looking though, though the latter still has other issues.じんない 05:23, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

Wikipedia blocked for R-rated content on my school computer...?

Look here: http://www.lightspeedsystems.com/archive/WebsiteDetails.aspx?Domain=wikipedia.org that's why wikipedia is blocked on my school computer. Nonsense. Reliable Forevertalk 13:42, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

That's unfortunate RF. I can understand your school's concern - there is some pretty 'R'-rated content on here - but I believe there are ways to filter specific pages or topics rather than block the entire site. I can't remember where I read that though, I'll have to have a look around ;) EyeSerenetalk 14:22, 11 February 2009 (UTC)
Very unfortunate indeed. I've never heard of that happening with a school, even if Wikipedia is somewhat 'R-rated'. I'm guessing school was the only place you could easily access Wikipedia?

Looking to be adopted

Greetings Mizu onna sango 15. I new and looking to be adopted. We at least one common interest. Sheshed (talk) 20:55, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

Certainly. :-) First of all, have you read Wikipedia:Your First Article? Taken a look at Wikipedia:Cheatsheet yet, by chance? Cheers, —Mizu onna sango15Hello! 06:48, 12 February 2009 (UTC).

A record of your Day will always be kept here.

For a userbox you can add to your userbox page, see User:Rlevse/Today/Happy Me Day! and my own userpage for a sample of how to use it. And it's only most appropriate that Mizu, one of the Fairest Ladies and Nicest Users on wiki, get this on Valentine's Day! RlevseTalk 04:19, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

Aww. Very much appreciated, Rlevse. :-) Happy Valentines day to you and yours! —Mizu onna sango15Hello! 05:28, 14 February 2009 (UTC)
No problem it's well deserved! RlevseTalk 12:13, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

Your block is nonsense.

Seems you block people who simply tell you that your talking nonsense. --92.233.134.250 (talk) 14:37, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

You should know full well why you were prevented from editing, and there was a good reason for it. Show us that you're here to help and not pester other Wikipedians, and you will avoid being re-blocked. Thanks, —Mizu onna sango15Hello! 16:43, 15 February 2009 (UTC).

Thanks

Thanks for the barnstar :) Reliable Forevertalk 16:57, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

No problem, RF. :-) —Mizu onna sango15Hello! 16:59, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
My computer is fixed, so I can edit without problems now :) Reliable Forevertalk 17:03, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
Ah, great. Is everything going fine with the recent sockpuppets you've reported? —Mizu onna sango15Hello! 18:13, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
Not really. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Sockpuppet_investigations/The_cheapo/Archive... I was hoping a checkuser could find out what IP address the cheapo is using, so it could be blocked for creating accounts just to attack other users. Reliable Forevertalk 18:19, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
