NFCC[edit]

Hi.

Have you ever heard of WP:NFCC? Take a look at it. Pay close attention to its article #1.

Best regards,
Codename Lisa (talk) 08:18, 23 November 2016 (UTC)

If you have a "free" image in mind, then be my guest. The biggest issue here is both the Khan academy app and the Wikipedia app both were developed for Windows 8 as Windows Runtime 8.x apps, thus they are not UWP apps. WikIan -(talk) 08:29, 23 November 2016 (UTC)
Oh, so you know about NFCC? Good. But the crazy part about it is that sometimes it demands people to travel to North Korea in hopes of getting a glimpse of its leader instead of using a non-free image of him. I've got used to it. Still, this case isn't that crazy. The UWP vs. WinRT distinction isn't something that demands a new screenshot. And even if it did, you could have taken a screenshot of a non-free UWP app and a free Windows app, which isn't the case with your shot.
Best regards,
Codename Lisa (talk) 08:35, 23 November 2016 (UTC)
I just wanted to clarify (and hope you understand) that the captions on the current images are wrong. WikIan -(talk) 01:54, 24 November 2016 (UTC)
I looked at Khan Academy's source code once before. I think it was a UWP app. Best regards, Codename Lisa (talk) 09:54, 24 November 2016 (UTC)
@Codename Lisa: The Khan app was created for the WinRT platform and I believe it was never updated to UWP. Plus, it's being discontinued. The easiest way to tell is by this dropdown at the top and this app menu that replaced the Windows 8 Charms bar in Windows 10. Additionally, this source states that "if Khan Academy had supported Windows 10 via UWP..." WikIan -(talk) 01:54, 2 December 2016 (UTC)
I see. Then I might have been wrong.
Although MSPowerUser's sentence is a bit misleading: UWP apps can target desktop only; or target desktop, Xbox and HoloLens without targeting mobile. If I had more time these days, I'd have skimmed the source code again.
Best regards,

Calendar Screenshot[edit]

Hi Wiklan,

Thanks for being willing to post a screenshot of your inbox to reflect UI changes in Mail (Windows). It looks good! Would you be willing and comfortable to do the same for updating the Calendar (Windows) screenshot?

Thanks so much, Onecatowner (talk) 04:50, 3 February 2017 (UTC)

Sure, however I've been really busy (and haven't been editing much). I'll do it as soon as I have time. WikIan -(talk) 21:54, 4 February 2017 (UTC)

Hi.
I restored the image to the article after an admin (Ronhjones) repaired the damage to the image.

Surface Dial draft[edit]

Hi there,

I have noticed that a number of users have been working on the draft page at User:WikIan/Surface Dial, but you have hardly been active on it. To this end, it seems like moving the page to the "Draft:" namespace would be more reasonable. Would you mind if I make this move out of your userspace so that it becomes more accessible to other users?

Regards, ««« SOME GADGET GEEK »»» (talk) 00:40, 1 April 2017 (UTC)

Hi,
Yeah, go ahead. The majority of the content was already merged into the main Microsoft Surface article under the Surface Dial section.

Paint 3D[edit]

Erdbeerteller01.jpg Ah! Finally! Someone doesn't upload non-free screenshots to Commons and does not post his own speculations!

I would say "I love you!" if Hollywood hadn't absolutely ruined this phrase. So I just stick with this: Thank you! Codename Lisa (talk) 08:47, 1 April 2017 (UTC)

WP:NFCC[edit]

Hello.

Let's put my message into the form a quiz, just for fun: (1) Who has the most liberal view to WP:NFCC in Wikipedia? (2) Who has most recently posted WikiLove to you? (3) Who have you most recently attacked personally even though that person didn't comment on your person? The answer all three is: Codename Lisa! Your NFCC violation is so severe that even Codename Lisa doesn't approve, and you add insult to the injury with personal attack and playing fool. It is high time you take one good hard look at what you did. And if you don't want people to avoid you, well stop acting like morons. What makes you think morons have an advantage in Wikipedia anyway?

FleetCommand (Speak your mind!) 14:01, 11 April 2017 (UTC)

If you want to patch things up with Codename Lisa, you can. Start by acknowledging the problem. FleetCommand (Speak your mind!) 14:26, 11 April 2017 (UTC)

Surface Laptop on Surface Timeline[edit]

Hi WikIan. It would be great if you could add the Surface Laptop under Template:Surface timeline. The device begins shipping on June 15, 2017. Thanks!

Re: Windows 10 build titles[edit]

Please do not unilaterally make a controversial change to a long-standing aspect of the article without gaining consensus first. Thank you.

ViperSnake151  Talk  05:15, 3 May 2017 (UTC)

Hi ViperSnake151,
I find it hard to believe you're not familiar with WP:CYCLE. It shouldn't cause any consensus issues anyways due to WP:COMMONNAME and the fact that a similar reference scheme is used in Windows 10 version history
WikIan -(talk) 05:23, 3 May 2017 (UTC)
That page is subject to different consensus and practices. ViperSnake151  Talk  05:35, 3 May 2017 (UTC)
@Codename Lisa:, are you aware of these so-called "different practices"? WikIan -(talk) 07:52, 3 May 2017 (UTC)
In way. The consensus established is the weakest form of consensus: Silence. I remember another dispute, but I am not aware of a more conclusive consensus. So, you two seem to have dispute. —Codename Lisa (talk) 08:01, 3 May 2017 (UTC)
