Portuguese wikipedia new feature[edit]

Hi. Can you help me, please? The portuguese wikipedia community is debating if we should implement a wizard similar to Wizard introduction. The only difference would be that, after the unresgistered user completes the wizard, the new article would be immediately created rather than being sent to revision. Could you please let me know if this new feature can be implemented in wiki pt, how i make it? Thanks and regards, --Rodrigofera (talk) 11:19, 3 May 2008 (UTC)

I don't think what you are attempting to do is possible with the MediaWiki software. However, I'm not an expert in that, so you might have to check with the true experts over at the technical village pump. -- ShinmaWa(talk) 13:41, 6 May 2008 (UTC)

Could you tell me who can make this wizard start to work? here in portuguese wikipedia we already voted and the wizard is translated. --Jack Bauer00 (talk) 11:40, 24 July 2008 (UTC)

Thank you for your interesting, I think that the only thing lasting is to make the non registered users that wants to create an article be redirected to the wizard, how can we make it? please. --Jack Bauer00 (talk) 13:43, 24 July 2008 (UTC)

RE:ICO Satellite Management now ICO Global Communications[edit]

Thanks for picking me up on that. The user in question had previously added copyrighted and POV information (see the article's talk page), so I guess I jumped to a conclusion when I saw him editing it again. Thanks. --GW_SimulationsUser Page | Talk 20:29, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

Grama Vidiyal[edit]

The website is not promotional in nature. If the banner displaying non-neutrality cannot be removed, can you please simply delete the article? I will let someone else write it without a supposed bias.

Nevermind[edit]

I figured out the policy for non-neutrality. I will just let other people read it and decide. Thanks —Preceding unsigned comment added by Charlie1858 (talkcontribs) 08:21, 28 May 2008 (UTC)

AFC.[edit]

You undid my rejection of that book article, only to re-reject it, saying it already existed. Well, what was the point of that, may I ask? The ''Gorgeous Girl''!!! (talk) 04:37, 29 May 2008 (UTC)

And now you undid my declination of that one which was copyrighted. Would you please quit undoing my declinations? The ''Gorgeous Girl''!!! (talk) 04:41, 29 May 2008 (UTC)
A perfectly valid question. Well, the article already existed so I thought for a moment that it was spelled slightly differently so I was gearing up for a #REDIRECT. However, I quickly learned that the requested title and the existing title were exactly the same. So I just re-rejected with "already exists" and wikilinked the title. As for the Todd Whitener request, that was a copyvio. Copyright violations need to be blanked out, not just rejected. So I redid that rejection as well. This, of course, is not meant as any kind of affront to you. We're all a team and we've all got each other's backs here :) -- ShinmaWa(talk) 04:45, 29 May 2008 (UTC)
Ah, I understand now. I just get a little concerned with these sorts of things, because I've had far too many past encounters with...disagreeable users. So whenever these things happen, I like to check it out, and make sure it was done for a valid reason, not just because a user has randomly taken a dislike to me. But I'm glad to see we're all working towards the same goal! The ''Gorgeous Girl''!!! (talk) 04:49, 29 May 2008 (UTC)
Thank you (for the barnstar)! The ''Gorgeous Girl''!!! (talk) 04:59, 29 May 2008 (UTC)



Thank you for the barnstar. KTC (talk) 10:46, 29 May 2008 (UTC)

Mini Atlas[edit]

PLease do, thanks, I would really like it restored to default. Also I don't used the standard setting mono, I alternate between cologne blue and modern ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 22:17, 30 May 2008 (UTC)

Oysters[edit]

Hello. Just thought I'd congratulate you on your user page - it's very good! Similar to an idea I had, but I think you pulled yours off somewhat better. Olaf Davis | Talk 15:41, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

Thanks! Its nice to hear positive feedback :) -- ShinmaWa(talk) 17:31, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

Misconceptions of GFDL[edit]

Yes, sorry, that's my own bad phrasing. Very bad phasing in fact. By without limitation, I meant for all purposes rather than literally, eg. for commercial use as well as other uses. I assure you my understanding of GFDL is pretty sound; I've reported a couple of apparently illegal mirrors to the devs, for instance. Copyright-free was just a very stupid way of saying it. I apologise for this, it won't happen again, and if it does, feel free to hit me with a rather disgusting fish. :) Thanks and best, PeterSymonds (talk) 19:42, 21 July 2008 (UTC)

Thanks, but ...[edit]

Thanks for your suggestion at the HelpDesk about my User Talk page problem... but it actually made matters worse as the green box moved a couple of lines further up the page! Any other ideas? PamD (talk) 15:52, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

AfC news[edit]

AFC-Logo.png

Dear AfC participant,

  1. Msgj and Tnxman307 are organising the AfC challenge! It's a little competition to help improve some of the articles created through AfC and we are hoping that everyone will get involved. For level 1, you just need to bring a stub up to Start-class. Level 2 is improving a Start-class article to C-class. And so on. To get involved or for more information please see the competition page.
  2. Those of you who haven't reviewed an article recently might not have noticed the new process that was implemented this year. Reviewing articles is now more enjoyable than ever :) You might like to give it a try. All articles waiting for review are in Category:Pending Afc requests. (Please read the updated instructions.)
  3. Please consider adding {{AFC status}} to your userpage to keep track of the number of articles waiting for review. At the time of writing we are officially backlogged, so help is needed!
  4. There is currently a proposal to bring the Images for upload process under the umbrella of WikiProject Articles for creation. The rationale is that both processes are designed to allow unregistered users to take part more fully in Wikipedia, and partipants in each process can probably help each other.

If you no longer wish to receive messages from WikiProject Articles for creation, please remove your name from this list. Thank you.

Speedy deletion nomination of Engineers Australia[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Engineers Australia requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be a blatant copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words.

If the external website belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. If you are not the owner of the external website but have permission from that owner, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission. You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

A file that you uploaded or altered, File:ArticlesForCreationEntry.JPG, has been listed at Wikipedia:Files for deletion. Please see the discussion to see why this is (you may have to search for the title of the image to find its entry), if you are interested in it not being deleted. Thank you.

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 18:10, 19 June 2010 (UTC)

1001 Nights[edit]

This article looks as if it's going to be under attack by Persian editors again, who want to expunge all references to it being an Arabic work. Keep an eye on it, if you will, as I'm only allowed so many reverts. --Soundofmusicals (talk) 18:23, 21 July 2012 (UTC)

Request for comment[edit]

As you previously participated in related discussions you are invited to comment at the discussion at Wikipedia:WikiProject Articles for creation/RfC for AfC reviewer permission criteria. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 04:20, 18 October 2013 (UTC)

Hello ShinmaWa, this is 74, we interacted over at that page briefly. Sorry you and Kudpung were talking past each other; I wrote up a long-winded explanation[1] of what I thought the misunderstanding was (since I also misunderstood what was happening from the original write-up!), and said I would ping you about it. But I don't seem to have done that last step... sigh.  :-/     Anyways, perhaps late is better than never?
  I did think you were contributing, I appreciated your clear thinking over there, so I wanted to re-extend the invite. There is a new section now, starting over without 'officially' starting over as it were, with just two-and-a-half proposals, plus a rewritten explanation that is more in line with what you were seeking to achieve, methinks. Feel free to comment or !vote or whatever, but of course as always this is not WP:REQUIRED if you are otherwise occupied. Thanks for improving wikipedia, and see you around. 74.192.84.101 (talk) 16:25, 9 December 2013 (UTC)
