Merry Christmas

A Happy New Year to All

I am 220 of Borg. I partake in this human seasonal celebratory event in order to more successfully infiltrate the Wikipedia collective, facilitating the addition of it's technological distinctiveness to our own. Resistance is futile!. Oh, and Merry Christmas.

Why is aussielegend allowed to push his lie that the census is compulsory?[edit]

Why is that. Its clearly not compulsory. Yet he sticks to the lie after he read the actual act. Yet again the truth is denied because a wiki admin doesnt like and wont be corrected.--A12bc34be5 (talk) 06:38, 2 August 2016 (UTC)

A12bc34be5, why are you asking me? However, if they have used a WP:reliable source that says so, is one reason. --220 of Borg 06:52, 2 August 2016 (UTC)
Clearly you added a comment on the subject without actually looking into it!
Try reading the ACT the LAW and what it actually says. Its not against the law to not do it!A12bc34be5 (talk) 06:59, 2 August 2016 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Bondi beast[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Bondi beast has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Subject lacks nobility

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Ashoka Chakra (military decoration), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Navdeep Singh (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.

Biographies of living persons[edit]

Trophy.png Biographies of living persons
Hi,

Thanks for your feedback.

I do however have to state that I'm frustrated when it comes to creating biographies. I'm not that too versed with how it works and I see you pointed out that I do not need to create biographies using 'the talk page and the sandbox is quite a mission for me to navigate. Can you please offer an alternative or guidelines on how to go about creating biograhies.

Thanks for the feedback! Buyinkonyane (talk) 13:00, 17 August 2016 (UTC)

Buyinkonyane A good starting point might be wp:adventure. Cotton2 (talk) 13:42, 17 August 2016 (UTC)
Thank you, Cotton2. I have copied their above message back to their talkpage, and made a few suggestions (Stop!) here and here. Your input is appreciated (saw my edit summaries I imagine?) 220 of Borg 14:00, 17 August 2016 (UTC)
Found on Buyinkonyane talk page, I was doing New page feed and noticed similar issues on editors articles. Speaking of which, I have some concerns about the name Buy ink on yane, maybe paid editor. Cotton2 (talk) 14:23, 17 August 2016 (UTC)
'Buy ink on yane', I didn't notice that. :-/ It is a bit odd for a 'new' editor to suddenly create so many pages, so quickly, with so many embedded external links, in my experience. Their use of the talk pages as sandboxes then moving them (rinse, repeat) is novel in my experience too. Seems the pages haven't been deleted before though, which would be a red flag to me.
Interesting, see https://buyinkonyane.wordpress.com/, nothing to do with the BLP subjects though, as far as I can see on a quick glance. --220 of Borg 14:41, 17 August 2016 (UTC)
Just an odd coincidence, see http://www.up.ac.za/en/communication-marketing/article/262446/photography-photo-library :-) Cotton2 (talk) 15:04, 17 August 2016 (UTC)
(i)nkonyane might be the "Smith' of South Africa? "buyisiwe.nkonyane" isnt far "buyisiwe.nkonyane" from "buyi.nkonyane" though. Or am missing something? Are we getting cloe to WP:outing here? 0:-/ 220 of Borg 15:22, 17 August 2016 (UTC)

Juanvb pages[edit]

Hi Borg, sorry for the late reply! thanks for writing and thanks for supporting Wikipedia, I love all you guys who keep pushing, because Wikipedia is our best source of info! I tried to write the article as good as possible, reading and following the guidelines and adding references for everything. Please, I would appreciate if you could help me improve them instead of deleting them. Would that be possible? There's more people working on this articles so that's why we would like at least to save all these work we've done til now. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyperloop_Makers_UPV

thanks in advance and kind regards, Juanvb (talk) 21:28, 17 August 2016 (UTC)

Hi Borg, just fixed what you told me, trying to learn ASAP :D Fixed references in Hyperloop UPV page and deleted peacocking style in Makers UPV description of HCube. I don't really understand what is the problem with wiki links, could you explain it with more detail please?? thank you very much for your help! Juanvb (talk) 11:11, 18 August 2016 (UTC)

Juanvb 'Wiki links' is not a problem, but 'neater' linking. You can link to my userpage like this:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/user:220_of_Borg (like your link to Hyperloop Makers UPV above) or:
• [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/user:220 of Borg], looking like: [1] or:
• [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/user:220_of_Borg User:220 of Borg] (WP:Piping), looking like: User:220 of Borg or:
• [[User:220 of Borg]], looking like User:220 of Borg, which is the easiest (and usual) way to link to a WP page.

331dot I presume this is an automated message via Twinkle? Perhaps my page moved caused it to think I was the page creator?220 of Borg 11:54, 4 September 2016 (UTC)
Yes, that's what happened. I think I tagged it at the same time or shortly after you had moved the page. My apologies 331dot (talk) 11:59, 4 September 2016 (UTC)
Meh! No worries! Not the first time it's happened like that to me IIRC. ;-) 220 of Borg 12:03, 4 September 2016 (UTC)

Ainslie Roberts re Australian 2 dollar coin[edit]

Thanks for your message.
I must admit I don't remember doing that edit - it was over 5 years ago!

The Royal Australian Mint FAQ actually says -

Who is on the $2 coin?

The image is a representation of an Aboriginal tribal elder, based on the original artwork of Ainslie Roberts and designed by Horst Hahne. It is not intended to depict any person in particular.

However, check out "The story of One Pound Jimmy" on this website operated by Ainslie Roberts' son, where he confirms that the image on the $2 coin is based on Roberts' drawing of Gwoya Jungarai.

User:220 of Borg/Template:Not here/doc[edit]

Hi! Just a quick note: I disabled the {{Documentation subpage}} header at User:220 of Borg/Template:Not here/doc because it looks like you were making a draft of a template subpage there, not an official one. Enterprisey (talk!) 23:27, 9 September 2016 (UTC)

September 2016[edit]

Information icon Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. When using certain templates (such as welcome templates and user warnings) on talk pages, as you did to User talk:EelamStyleZ, don't forget to substitute with text by adding subst: to the template tag. For example, use {{subst:uw-test1}} instead of {{uw-test1}}. This reduces server load and prevents accidental blanking of the template. Whenever possible, use Twinkle; it will always substitute templates for you. It would be much appreciated! Regards, <<< SOME GADGET GEEK >>> (talk) 15:56, 29 September 2016 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Vrunda Gadesha[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Vrunda Gadesha requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not credibly indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator. Drm310 (talk) 14:39, 7 October 2016 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Jay Prakash[edit]

Hello 220 of Borg,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Jay Prakash for deletion, because it seems to be inappropriate for a variety of reasons.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. UNSC Luke 1021 (talk) 21:02, 7 October 2016 (UTC)

@UNSC Luke 1021: Funnily enough, I nominated that page for deletion too, as I moved the original, apparently autobiographical, page to the actual creators' user page at User:Jaiprakashji. The same thing occurred just ↑ above when I didn't CSD nominate the redirect after moving another inappropriate page (Vrunda Gadesha) to the creators userpage User:Vrunda Gadesha. No good deed goes'unpunished'. Face-wink.svg 220 of Borg 04:34, 8 October 2016 (UTC)

good for you[edit]

I somehow got involved in Wang Sicong and in the process noticed that you are the only editor who offered a hand to User_talk:Zhanglei123456. I am sure he is misguided/ill equipped rather than ill-intentioned. Most of the other editors on his talk page have been concerned with attacking him and getting his pages deleted, or running meaningless SPI's. So just a note to say "Good on you".104.163.141.133 (talk) 12:08, 18 October 2016 (UTC)
(Symbol opinion vote.svg- Link to Wang Sicong corrected. 220 of Borg 14:06, 18 October 2016 (UTC))

Why thank you 104.163.141.133 (talk · contribs). A while since I've got any 'kudos' on my talk page. (I have had a few 'thanks for edits', but they don't show up here.) If you had an account you could have given me a barnstar. (though I suppose that can be done manually too). Not trying to 'butter me up' are you? Face-wink.svg
The two messages I left, suggesting creating drafts, and reminding them to sign their talk-page posts, are just templates, which I think you know.
I see that the 'Wang' page is looking much better than it was, apparently largely thanks to you? It was deleted twice, but then it appeared largely to be: "His dads a billionaire, he has a shitload of money that he spends in casinos", which isn't particularly notable. When an editor seem so 'desperate' to get a page up, it start looking suspicious, and for good reason, going by my own experience with COI editors. This is why they were queried about possible paid editing.
Oh dear, I'll be surprised if you're a sock-puppet.Face-surprise.svg Your English seem better than Zhanglei123456s'.
How's the weather in Canada at the moment? (Doesn't look that different to here actually) Regards, 220 of Borg 14:06, 18 October 2016 (UTC)

Cheers for your replies[edit]

Hey 220, Just wanted to say thanks for your replies and explanations on the Thunder River Rapids Ride talk page. I am not very experienced in this aspect of Wikipedia - I mainly make minor edits and revert vandalism every now and then, so it is greatly appreciated. Thanks again, have a good one :) Sandshark23 talkcontribs 06:53, 28 October 2016 (UTC)

Want to help test advanced new tools planned for Recent Changes?[edit]

Hi 220 of Borg! I’m reaching out to you because our logs tell us you’re an active Twinkle new user welcomer. The WMF Collaboration team is working on new tools that we hope will be useful to people engaged in reviewing recent changes, fighting vandalism or supporting new users. We want to test them for usability with editors who are experienced with relevant wiki work. If you’re interested in helping to shape this new technology—we’d like to hear from you.

The testing should take about an hour, will be conducted online, and will take place during the next few weeks. To participate, please email dchen[at]wikimedia.org with the subject line Twinkle Welcomer. Include the following information:

  • Username
  • Email where we can reach you
  • Your city or time zone
  • Best time to talk to you
  • Your primary use(s) of Twinkle or Recent Changes (e.g., reviewing recent changes, reviewing with a particular focus (specify), anti-vandalism, new-page review, welcoming new users, etc.)


Thanks! Dchen (WMF) (talk) 20:48, 31 October 2016 (UTC)

November 2016[edit]

Hi and thanks for message; understood and appreciated. Possible reason for 12 reverts in 5 min would be that I don't know how to undo more than one revision at a time? :-) and those revisions were unbearably sloppy in their spelling and use of apostrophes and other grammatical doo-dads. Also the talk page seems to show that the edits I reverted were made by an IP address, not, if I understand it correctly, a registered user - is that right? Sophoife (talk) 14:43, 3 November 2016 (UTC)

@Sophoife: Yes the edits were from an IP address, but the 3RR rules still apply. IP editors have the tight to edit any page, unless it is WP:protected. See Wikipedia:IPs are human too. Reverting of WP:vandalism is, if I recall correctly, not subject to 3RR, but I don't think that was the case. WP:Assume good faith. A 'bad' sloppy edit doesn't necessarily it vandalism. If they keep restoring it after being advised against it, then it's WP:disruptive.
Very roughly, If you want to revert multiple edits, in the revision history you select the first edit by clicking on the left little round 'button', the last edit with the right 'button, then click on, Compare selected revisions.Then select (Undo) (above the right hand version). See Help:Reverting. 220 of Borg 16:21, 3 November 2016 (UTC)

Demonitization[edit]

Dear 220 of the borg,

I thought that the cheering crowds in Belgaum can be part of the reactions. If you have seen the video of the event. He specifically asks if people support his decision. In a way it is a referendum on his decision. This does reflect the opinion of the masses. He was not talking at a political rally, its a gathering of students. However, as you feel that its is political, could you kind point me to the correct wiki guideline that prohibits "political reactions" to be included under the "Reactions" heading? If your concern is with wording alone, i request you to amend the wording accordingly.

If you include the reactions on twitter and blogs but exclude reaction of the common man, it will lead to a elitist bias.

Thank you — Preceding unsigned comment added by Nagarjun53 (talkcontribs) 17:36, 13 November 2016 (UTC)

Request for deletion[edit]

I've added deletion template on the page. Kindly delete this page Shreya Vardhan. Thank you - Rosepal8 (talk) 06:36, 12 November 2016 (UTC)

removal of content from kasthamandap[edit]

Why did you remove my content from kasthamandap. It was from the national news agency. It was sourced from facts. Sion school (talk) 04:38, 18 November 2016 (UTC)

Sion school, please see my WP:Edit summary. If "...from the national news agency" is so then, you should be able to provide a source.
