How do you get a bot to archive your talk page automatically?[edit]

{{help me}}

I don't really like archiving my talk page by myself, and I've seen other users use a bot to automatically archive their talk page. Does anyone know how to do this? Thanks!--Valkyrie Red 14:36, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

Have a look at User:MiszaBot/Archive HowTo which explains how to use MiszaBot III to do so. Regards SoWhy 14:39, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

Thanks!--Valkyrie Red 14:54, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

What's wrong with my signature?[edit]

{{help me}}

I know how to sign posts after finishing them (you add Valkyrie Red 14:58, 2 January 2010 (UTC) at the end) but for some reason, whenever I sign my posts it says "preceding unsigned comment added by Valkyrie Red. Even if I click the autosign button it still says that. How do I fix my signature/Can someone tell me what's wrong with my signature? Thanks! (When I'm done with this post and I sign it, it will say that phrase)--Valkyrie Red 14:58, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

Do you add ~~~~ at the end of your posts? Jarkeld (talk) 15:14, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

Yes, I do. Like right now, I will add itValkyrie Red 15:16, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

Your signature does not have a link to your userpage or talk page. Simplest way to fix it is to turn off the "sign my name exactly as shown" in your preferences. Timotheus Canens (talk) 15:33, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

Thanks a lot man! Appreciate it!--Valkyrie Red (talk) 15:36, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

Prequels[edit]

In the case where there is a prequel developed after the initial film, we would consider that to be "followed by". For the Star Wars films, although they started with the later films and then went into the prequels, it is more helpful for readers who know nothing of the topic to know what came first. These films were several decades apart and resulted in different special effects, new actors, and more developed techniques from the director and crew. Although it may be confusing which may come first, there should always be a section in the article that talks about any prequels/sequels to clarify for the reader. There is a current discussion going on at WT:FILM if you would like further thoughts by other editors. --Happy editing! Nehrams2020 (talkcontrib) 20:35, 2 May 2010 (UTC)

How do you redirect to a section of an article[edit]

{{help me}}

Like if I were to redirect to the section "second gathering" in the Trojan War article. How do I do that?--Valkyrie Red (talk) 00:48, 3 May 2010 (UTC)

For example, [[User talk:Valkyrie Red#Note|This bit]] = This bit.
[[Trojan War#The second gathering]] gives Trojan War#The second gathering.
See Wikipedia:Linking#Piped links to sections of articles.  Chzz  ►  01:05, 3 May 2010 (UTC)

Need Fellow Users to Help Me Prove a Point for the Civil War![edit]

{{help me}}

Hello there fellow Wikipedians! I need to help to make Wikipedia a more reliable source of information. For this I am talking about the Battle of Gettysburg Article, which was indeed a decisive victory for the North but unfortunately there is a user who uses articles written by himself to claim that it wasn't a victory. Someone please aid me!--Valkyrie Red (talk) 14:30, 4 May 2010 (UTC)

Firstly, any and all facts relating to the Battle of Gettysburg, victory or not, must be verified, by independant reliable sources. And if either you or the other user are using your own original research it is unacceptable for the article. You must discuss this on the talk page with this other user and if the dispute continues then follow the steps laid out in Wikipedia:Dispute resolution requests. -- œ 15:33, 4 May 2010 (UTC)

Need Fellow Users to Help Me Prove a Point for the Civil War![edit]

{{help me}}

Yeah, the above guy didn't help at all, so is there anyone else willing to join in?--Valkyrie Red (talk) 20:31, 4 May 2010 (UTC)

Can you provide me a link to this user and articles he references? Spitfire19 (Talk) 20:44, 4 May 2010 (UTC)
I made the edit for you as of right now. Please come to User talk:Spitfire19 if you have any more issues with this topic. :) Spitfire19 (Talk) 21:22, 4 May 2010 (UTC)

If your only goal was to recruit editors to "join in" and take your side over another's to "help you prove a point" then no, I guess I didn't help at all, as that is NOT what the helpme template is for. I suggest you read the advice I gave above regarding dispute resolution. -- œ 15:21, 5 May 2010 (UTC)

Yes. You asked if the victory was "decisive". Most commentators seem to think so. If you look at the other articles on Wikipedia in other languages, for example, they pretty much all say "Decisive Union Victory". The German one though is cautious like this article is at present, and calls it a "Union Victory". Personally I think it was decisive as it is considered the turning point of the war, and after it the Confederates went into headlong retreat. The Union was also easily able to replace the 25% casualties. The Confederacy was unable to replace its 33% losses. All and all, it was a disaster for the South.

Re:Proving Gettysburg[edit]

Oh wow, that was almost two years ago. Sure, what do you need help in? Kevin Rutherford (talk) 23:40, 4 May 2010 (UTC)

Whoops, sure I'm willing. I'm just unsure if that is risking point of view pushing on a topic. Before I start work, tell me why you decided to work on this issue. Also, do you have credible evidence to back it up? Kevin Rutherford (talk) 04:30, 5 May 2010 (UTC)
It sounds like you are involved in a content dispute here, one that has been going on for almost three and a half years. I am willing to mediate it, but I am not going to get involved. The fact that you have also used a sock to edit-war here also makes me less inclined to help. If you can produce something that might swing my opinion, by all means try and do so but at this time I'm not gonna help you directly. Kevin Rutherford (talk) 23:06, 6 May 2010 (UTC)

How do you check how many times an article is viewed?[edit]

{{help me}}

I remember that this other user said that this article is viewed more than the others. How do you check that? Thanks!--Valkyrie Red (talk) 19:21, 9 May 2010 (UTC)

How do you report another user?[edit]

{{help me}}

Yeah, another use insulted me. How do you report them? Thanks!--Valkyrie Red (talk) 22:03, 9 May 2010 (UTC)

I assume that you mean this edit. I would not, personally, consider that to be a personal attack, or in breach of any Wikipedia policies, therefore I do not think any further action is necessary.
If you wish to pursue the matter (which I do not advise), you could either discuss it directly with the other user, or raise it on Wikiquette alerts.
However, my advice is to drop the STICK and have a nice cup of tea or something. Best,  Chzz  ►  22:11, 9 May 2010 (UTC)

Trojan War[edit]

Ideally, there would be an infobox for the conflict since even our articles on fictional wars use the infobox (see One Year War for an example), however the addition of the box can be a tricky issue if the people who keep tabs on the article decide to remove the box based on consensus. If this is the case, then I would recommend leaving the article infobox-free and instead work on gaining consensus for the reintroduction of the box. Remember, at the end of the day all the box does in summaries what going to be presented in the article, so its loss is not necessarily a devastating thing, it just means that those visiting the article will have to actually read through the material to get a feel for it rather than glance at the infobox and get a rough overview of it. TomStar81 (Talk) 00:00, 29 May 2010 (UTC)

I'm incline to wait awhile longer before making a move here, I want to make sure that everything is out in the open and that usually means waiting until the last of the comments added is at least 24-hours old. When that happens I think a straw poll will be in order to determine the consensus for the infobox on the page. TomStar81 (Talk) 00:38, 4 June 2010 (UTC)
They act according to WP:BOLD, and to a lesser extent, WP:IAR, its just unfortunate that in this case neither one of these positions took well to the debate. TomStar81 (Talk) 00:45, 4 June 2010 (UTC)
Coordinators be thou for the contributors. We exist not to force adherence to policy or guideline, but help bring people to an agreement on how things should appear in articles. To this end therefore I look to consensus to establish a course of action, in this manner, I leave the major decision to the editors and place myself in a position to enforce whatever consensus emerges in a poll.

war box[edit]

Hi, Valkyrie Red. I've been trying to help maintain the Trojan War box, which I consider more of a navigational template. (By the way, I did come to your page to ask for input when you fell silent during the creation of the Trojan War nav template, because I felt that since you had been a major voice, you should be heard before finalizing. I'm sorry you weren't able to participate in finishing that.) But I'm not really interested in taking a lead role in the article. You should probably go to the Trojan War talk page.

re: Batman#Homosexual interpretations[edit]

A few things regarding your edits here and here.

  • That section is contentious. And the standing consensus is that it is appropriate in covering the overall development, use, exploitation, and critiques of the character. Please go back through the archives of the articles talk page to see this.
  • In order for this to be removed, an active change in consensus needs to be shown. Not just a single editor stating "I see no need..." It is unfortunate that you did not get an immediate response to you talk page post of July 21, but that does not show active change.
  • Your semi-bold removal did get the response indicative of the standing consensus, whether you want to hear it or not. Along with a return to the status quo.
  • Repeating the removal after that without bothering to return to the talk page can be taken as the start of disruptive editing in most cases. Doing it with sourced material that is in place with a strong consensus could be seen as worse.

- J Greb (talk) 13:20, 1 August 2011 (UTC)

Since it's come up again. this is disruptive and editing in bad faith. You have been pointed to the talk page and the archives for the consensus on this. If you cannot work with in that and continue to edit this way you will be blocked for vandalism. - J Greb (talk) 01:24, 6 August 2011 (UTC)

August 2011[edit]

Hello

Please don't create implausible or useless redirects.

  • Mr. Poppers Penguins (film) is either broken English or catering to a French-language aesthetic. Neither is a reason to create it as a redirect.
  • ディックグレイソン would possibly be useful if it were a Japanese-language topi and the article has started out there instead of under an English title. It's less than pointless for an English-language topic on the English-language Wikipedia.

And, so you are clear on it, a warning. Please so not engage in personal attacks as you did here.

Someone acting like the owner of a page?[edit]

Yeah, no point in mentioning names since no one even cares, but what do you do if someone acts like they own the page and will restrict others from making changes just cause they have a set way of operating the page?

WP:OWN says nobody owns a page; if discussion on the article talk page doesn't get anywhere, see WP:Dispute resolution for possible ways forward; if it gets serious, post at WP:AN/I giving names and diffs.

Disambiguation link notification for March 1[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Lego Marvel Super Heroes, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Nemesis (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.

Solution: Be Bold![edit]

I happened to notice your comment on Corvoes talk page:

I want to discuss a change because that's my right as a contributor to Wikipedia, but no one will respond even after using the ping template. How am I supposed to initiate a logic-based discussion if no one is willing to discuss?

Just a friendly reminder: Wikipedia talk pages are about improving its articles, not a general discussion forum. Meaning don't feel bad if nobody responds to any general discussion or questions, it could well be that people don't see any direct relevance to Wikipedia. In that case, you will be better off posting your thoughts elsewhere.

Therefore, assuming your ideas directly concern our articles, my best advice is: Be WP:BOLD and go ahead and edit the article(s) in question! This will normally trigger a response, assuming not everyone agrees with you. Perhaps you will be reverted, but you should normally expect that editor to explain why, thus starting the discussion you seek :)

How do you get people to discuss on a talk page?[edit]

check-mark
This help request has been answered. If you need more help, place a new {{help me}} request on this page followed by your questions, contact the responding user(s) directly on their user talk page, or consider visiting the Teahouse.

I want to enact a change on a page and presented the idea on said page's talk page. However, it's been a couple of days and no one has responded. This would be a relatively large change, so I can't Be Bold. How do I get others to participate?--Valkyrie Red (talk) 12:57, 24 September 2014 (UTC)

If it is an article the best way is to put the article up for an RfC, as seen here WP:RFC some people get notifications of the RFC and will respond to it, though I do recommend contacting the other primary editors and other editors of the article by leaving them a message on their talk page, to let them know that there is an ongoing RFC a article that they contributed to. --Clarkcj12 (talk) 16:31, 24 September 2014 (UTC)

Files[edit]

A few things regarding image files

  1. Try not to change files in articles by uploading a different image over the file already on Wikipedia. The file you want to place should be uploaded under a different file name.
  2. When you upload a file, make sure that the non-free media information and use rationale is consistent with the image you upload. Discrepancies between the two will lead to the image being removed.
  3. Non-free image are of limited size. With regard to comic book character, 1,500 pixel × 2,049 pixel is well above the acceptable limit.

And it seems you are still creating implausible redirects. Please stop that.

- J Greb (talk) 11:24, 25 September 2014 (UTC)

To clarify with the implausible redirects:
  • Redirects for incorrect capitalization are not wanted are not wanted.
  • Redirects from non-standard abbreviations are not wanted.
  • Redirects from non-standard or fanish alternate titles are not wanted.
Also:
  • Don't disrupt radio or television station articles to create unwanted redirects. Don't even add hat notes pointing to the other article.
  • Don't disrupt dab pages to add the above type of links.
- J Greb (talk) 22:02, 25 September 2014 (UTC)

The Equalizer genre[edit]

You are starting up some WP:3RR for this one genre edit so please stop reverting my edits. It was my original edit to call it an action thriller. I saw the movie and it was a thriller without a doubt. Don't think this is true? Watch the movie and get a clue. - Theironminer (talk) 19:22, 29 September 2014 (UTC)

RE: That Guy With the Glasses[edit]

Thank you for explaining the removal.

Now, please do it on your initial edits when you remove chunks of text that have a reference. Otherwise it looks like awkward at best.

Skyfall[edit]

Spectre isn't a sequel: it's another film in the series and the plot lines are separate. No other Bond article has information about the following film for the same reason. - SchroCat (talk) 09:00, 15 February 2015 (UTC)
