Symbole-faune.png Welcome on my page!

Subjects I contribute to are history, nature, authors, artists, baseball and softball and more. Since I am mostly active on the Dutch-language version nl-Wikipedia, please contact me here if you need me for help or if you have a question.


Hi I'm french can you have a look at Talk:Peter_Nguyen.

Some french wikipedians get a little bit confused [1]

I will try to contact you on the nl board also.

Thanks --Neuromancien (talk) 01:43, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

Hi, we got in touch I think since I talked with several fr-wikipedia colleagues in the mean time. The page for this long term structural vandal can be found om meta now here. Kind regards, MoiraMoira (talk) 09:27, 2 September 2009 (UTC)
The Cantonese version of this article (zh-yue:阮文雄) cites a great deal of external press coverage, which suggests that although it might be a case of cross-wiki promo push, the article itself is worth keeping. --Deryck C. 11:18, 16 September 2009 (UTC)


Dear MoiraMoira, happy to switch to English. I gather we could try to improve my texts by trying to add sources and make them sound less promotional. I will see, if the texts can be improved and, if so, try to do so. Do you think that this can make sense or do you simply consider this will be a waste of time? Thanks for your efforts to maintain the Dutch Wikipedia. Robin hood flour (talk) 12:58, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

User talk:[edit]

Thanks for the help, but that's not it. It's a library in Bletchey. Nowhere near a university by my knowledge. --ThejadefalconSing your songThe bird's seeds 10:47, 12 September 2009 (UTC)

I guess it is a server hosted by this university (per whois). It also traces to the MKConnect which is a learning portal serving schools from the Milton Keynes council. Perhaps an IP-addie used by verious schools and libraries? Perhaps it should be relabeled as "Internet access for various schools and public libraries in the Milton Keynes region? How is that? MoiraMoira (talk) 13:08, 12 September 2009 (UTC)
Sounds good. But you better do it. I'm not too familiar with this sort of thing. --ThejadefalconSing your songThe bird's seeds 10:12, 15 September 2009 (UTC)
Hi The Jade, I changed it! Thanx for the conferring. Kind regards, MoiraMoira (talk) 11:58, 15 September 2009 (UTC)

Ip Block on NL[edit]

Hi there. Can you please specify why you blocked my IP ( in the Dutch Wikipedia? I can not remember to have ever edited it and I am most certainly no vandal. In fact, I am a quite active user here on EN. This must be a misunderstanding. I have just unified my account and so I noticed that I couldn't log into the Dutch Wikipedia. Thank you. Janfrie1988 (talk) 23:32, 8 June 2010 (UTC)

Hi, I am sure you are no vandal but you will have to ask for an IP-block exempt for you sul account since that dynamic range had to be hard blocked on nl-wiki as it was used intensively by a well known long time vandal on de-wiki and nl-wiki who makes offensive user names cursing at wikipedians and vandalises galore. Kind regards, MoiraMoira (talk) 20:27, 10 June 2010 (UTC)


Hello. This message is being sent to inform you that there currently is a discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents regarding an issue with which you may have been involved. The thread is Dutch_Wikipedia_turmoil. Thank you. —TheDJ (talkcontribs) 16:25, 25 July 2010 (UTC)

Please see here. An unknown editor called Faust placed long diatribes about weird matters I am not familiar with on my talkpage and I was advised by a colleague of you to remove them and report them to ANI page which I did. Hope this harassment now stops. Thank you for intervening. Kind regards, MoiraMoira (talk) 19:52, 25 July 2010 (UTC)

Vermeend sokpopmisbruik[edit]

Beste MoiraMoira, je hebt mij geblokkeerd op nl.wikipedia vanwege vermeend sokpopmisbruik.
Ik heb om mij moverende redenen mijn gebruikersnaam veranderd. Hier is niets onreglementairs aan, en ik wil het hier verder ook niet over hebben. Echter, Gebruiker VR-Land was genoeg detective om er achter te komen dat de eerste account ook van mij was en vroeg me op mijn overleg pagina om opheldering. Maar omdat VR Land en ik al langer op slechte voet staan, had ik geen behoefte om zijn "detective werk" te belonen. Vervolgens zag ik dat VR Land mij bij Sokpopmisbruik had aangegeven, wat natuurlijk van de gekke is, omdat ik geen enkele wijze een marionettenspel speel. Ik ben gewoon van gebruikersnaam veranderd. Er van uit gaande dat de checkusers, behalve te kijken of er van het zelfde IP adres gebruik word gemaakt, ook daadwerkelijk vaststellen of er wel sprake is van misbruik, en niet van het slechte eeuwige vliegen afvangen (ik heb VR Land al eens gevraagd me met rust te laten, en ook die discussie ontspoorde) ging ik er van uit dat wel los zou lopen. Groot is nu mijn verbazing dat ik nu ie dat ik op nl wikipedia ben geblokkeerd. En ook nog zonder dat mij om wederhoor is gevraagd. De checkuser stelt "Met twee nieuwe verschillende identiteiten (hoe doorzichtig ook) doorgaan met dezelfde onderwerpen is misbruik". De reden dat ik twee nieuwe accounts heb is dat ik ook op en.wikipedia actief ben. Honormeets was al in gebruik, en toen heb ik er maar honorsteem van gemaakt. Voor de rest maakt dat mij niet erg veel uit, ik wilde gewoon een andere gebruikersnaam.
Wat nu te doen, want ik draag graag bij aan nl.wikipedia. -- Honorsteem (talk) 09:32, 21 November 2011 (UTC)

Hello Eiland/Honormeets/Honorsteem, this concerns a sockpuppet case on nl-wiki. A checkuser was requested by an nl-wiki admin with whom you obviously had edting problems in the past. An independent non-involved checkuser on nl-wiki evaluated whether in this case a checkuser was warranted in light of the checkuser policy and it was performed. Another independent non-involved admin (me) then applied the proper measures as we have in place on nl-wiki for these matters. You can read on the talk pages of your original account Eiland as well as on the two sockpuppet accounts how you can get your original account unblocked again. It is preferable how ever not to import problems from other wiki versions elsewhere. I do not visit this talk page regularily so you'd better had asked when matters were still unclear to you how to proceed on the talk page of your main account on nl-wiki which you can edit. Kind regards, MoiraMoira (talk) 11:47, 22 November 2011 (UTC)
Fijn dat je toh nog even de tijd neemt om te reageren. Ik vraag me af of jij ook zon gele waarschuwing krijgt als je nieuwe berichten op je talk pagina hebt, want die had je gister dan ook al kunnen zien. Ik was er niet van op de hoogte dat mijn overleg pagina niet was geblokkeerd. Anyway, ik heb dit alles ondertussen voorgelegd aan de arbitrage commissie, dus ik wens je verder een fijne dag. -- Honorsteem (talk) 09:06, 23 November 2011 (UTC)
Prima dan kijken die er vers naar en hoor je wel van hen wat en hoe. Met vriendelijke groet, MoiraMoira (talk) 07:01, 24 November 2011 (UTC)

Chinpa Tenpel[edit]

An article that you have edited has been nominated for deletion. I would appreciate your feedback at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Chinpa Tenpel. gidonb (talk) 02:13, 17 April 2012 (UTC)

Hi Gidon, I assume I did the removal as nl-wiki admin and then removed the interwiki on en-wiki only. Kind regards, MoiraMoira (talk) 09:12, 19 August 2012 (UTC)


what the fuck are you deleting the OFFICIAL VERSION of the Russian Railway Rates in 2012? There is a special chapter in the article TRANS-SIBERIAN RAILWAY and exactly there this first-class information must be found. (talk) 19 August 2012‎ (UTC)

Glad to notice they still have reproductive skills in Russia :) MoiraMoira (talk) 09:13, 19 August 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion converted to PROD: Stork (card game)[edit]

Hello MoiraMoira. I am just letting you know that I have converted the speedy deletion tag that you placed on Stork (card game) to a proposed deletion tag, because I do not believe CSD applies to the page in question. Thank you. JohnCD (talk) 17:07, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

I see that on nl:wp it was deleted as Geen zinvolle inhoud, but here on en:wp the reasons for speedy deletion are quite strictly limited to those in the list at WP:CSD#List of criteria. There have been several proposals to add a speedy criterion for made-up words, games etc, but there has never been agreement. Fortunately, there is a useful guideline Wikipedia is not for things made up one day which can be used to explain to the article authors. Regards, JohnCD (talk) 18:48, 13 May 2013 (UTC)
Made up card games either as pranx, hoaxes or student jokes are common place. This was try numer -nth and cleverly done by firstly creating the text on en-wiki to fake credibility. If rules on fake articles differ from nl-wiki I rest assured the community can take actions here in a different way as well. Hence my actions aimed to protect the en-wiki version too. MoiraMoira (talk) 09:19, 18 May 2013 (UTC)

Cross-wiki vandal[edit]

Thanks for your note - I had wondered what was going on, including why Joan Warner stopped editing and subsequent translation requests came from IPs. I had spotted and corrected the italicization of article subjects in the lead, and to a lesser extent the overlinking on words like "President" (and misspellings of names on some foreign-language Wikipedias). I don't see vandalism, though, and the articles they want created appear to be on notable topics, although I've been adding references when I can, and others have also improved a couple of those I've created at this person's request - such as by adding an appropriate category of players rather than the short list the IP tends to have. Are there any reasons I haven't thought of for me not to go ahead and (eventually) create their most recently requested articles? Yngvadottir (talk) 16:57, 15 May 2013 (UTC)

Hi there is no "their"; there is only one person. If you read this matters will be clearer for you I hope that facilitating is definitely not a good idea. Kind regards, MoiraMoira (talk) 09:21, 18 May 2013 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: Austrian Handball Federation[edit]

Hello MoiraMoira, and thanks for patrolling new pages! I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Austrian Handball Federation, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: The reason given is not a valid speedy deletion criterion. You may wish to review the Criteria for Speedy Deletion before tagging further pages. Thank you. wL<speak·check> 17:15, 27 June 2013 (UTC)

Sorry for not making this clear. I now placed the correct reason. MoiraMoira (talk) 17:20, 30 June 2013 (UTC)

Cross-wiki vandal[edit]

You identified someone on my talk page a while back as a cross-wiki vandal. Another of the same type has cropped up: Dawn Churchward. Yngvadottir (talk) 17:54, 23 October 2013 (UTC)

Thanx for the heads up! Have reported our dear friend Olha for a global lock. Kind regards, MoiraMoira (talk) 07:05, 24 October 2013 (UTC)

I believe I found another one; I've cleaned up the article the person created: [2]. Yngvadottir (talk) 17:50, 3 December 2013 (UTC)

Lovely. Already has been globally locked. Kind regards, MoiraMoira (talk) 20:50, 4 December 2013 (UTC)

I have blocked an IP for a week per the duck test: User talk: If you disagree, either let me know or have someone more familiar with the situation modify it. Yngvadottir (talk) 16:10, 14 January 2014 (UTC)

Oh yes the vandal struck again. See the file which is maintained from all over the language versions here. Kind regards, MoiraMoira (talk) 12:24, 16 January 2014 (UTC)
In the mean time I have blocked some as well on nl-wiki MoiraMoira (talk) 12:26, 16 January 2014 (UTC) has appeared on my talk page asking me to translate de:Liste der Fechtverbände, which it turns out was created by on February 6; it's a mostly English fork of the list at de:Fédération Internationale d'Escrime#Die nationalen Fechtverbände. Both appear to be Olha, and the latter has many other contributions on de. I've left a note for the most recent editor of the fork article on de. Yngvadottir (talk) 21:22, 26 February 2014 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Orlando Yntema, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Dutch (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

You might want to suggest adopting a similar policy on It does wonders for co-operation. --Andreas Philopater (talk) 16:28, 14 January 2015 (UTC)

You might want to consider to refrain from importing problems from other projects to this project. EvilFreD (talk) 16:39, 14 January 2015 (UTC)
I'm actually suggesting exporting a solution from this one to the other. --Andreas Philopater (talk) 16:46, 14 January 2015 (UTC)
Make that the cat wise. There was no need to post this on Moira's talkpage on this project since you were discussing issues on nlwiki (or rather: attacking the system and other contributors). Her talkpage on nlwiki would have been a better choice and would've been less easy to be mistaken for an act of bad faith. There's a difference between actually trying to be helpful and trying to appear helpful so to able oneself to import problems from other projects. Besides, WP:AGF is already a policy on nlwiki. In your case I would suggest starting at the end. EvilFreD (talk) 17:39, 14 January 2015 (UTC)
If, here, I launched an AfD in which I blatantly assumed bad faith, lied about the article having sources, and mocked the contributor's English, I would rightly expect a rocket from the closing mod. If policies on Dutch wiki are the same, the failure to apply them suggests they are something of a dead letter. Having seen how dysfunctional the Dutch wiki is, I'm happy to suggest improvements to those involved in that project, but I won't be going there again. It isn't worth the mental effort of writing Dutch, for one thing. You know, even just getting a glimpse from outside the bubble might help you over there. --Andreas Philopater (talk) 17:50, 14 January 2015 (UTC)
Q.E.D. EvilFreD (talk) 17:57, 14 January 2015 (UTC)
Glad you've come to see sense. --Andreas Philopater (talk) 18:01, 14 January 2015 (UTC)
EvilFreD, mulling over what you say, I think you might have put your finger on the sore spot: any group that sees pointing out failures as "attacking the system and other contributors" has learnt the lessons of Glasnost too well. --Andreas Philopater (talk) 18:50, 14 January 2015 (UTC)


Wikipedia Rollbacker.svg

I have granted rollback rights to your account. After a review of some of your contributions, I believe you can be trusted to use rollback for its intended usage of reverting vandalism, and that you will not abuse it by reverting good-faith edits or to revert-war. For information on rollback, see Wikipedia:New admin school/Rollback and Wikipedia:Rollback feature. If you do not want rollback, contact me and I will remove it. Good luck and thanks. – Gilliam (talk) 09:07, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

Thank you very much. Comes in handy as I often patrol cross wiki as global sysop and also do cross wiki vandalism from schools. Kind regards, MoiraMoira (talk) 10:30, 13 February 2015 (UTC)
