Welcome![edit]

Hello Kropotkine 113, and Welcome to Wikipedia!

I hope you enjoy this place and decide to stay.

Please remember to sign your name on talk pages by using four tildes, like this: (~~~~). This will automatically produce your username and the date. Also, please do your best to always fill in the edit summary field, as this will help other users to know what you changed and why you changed it. Below are some (rather boring, but) useful links to help you learn your way around the encyclopedia as well as to help you become a successful editor.

I hope you will like editing here, and I hope you enjoy being a Wikipedian!

If you have any questions, feel free to leave me a message on my talk page. Good luck, and happy editing! J.delanoygabsadds 18:52, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

Utilisateur:Kropotkine 113/Articles[edit]

Hi, I moved Utilisateur:Kropotkine 113/Articles to User:Kropotkine 113/Articles. Since this is the English Wikipedia, we use the English word for User to start user sub-pages. Just wanted to let you know. J.delanoygabsadds 18:54, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

You don't have to be ashamed. It is a very easy mistake to make. I started a userpage on es.wikipedia, and I at first wondered why it said "Usario:J.delanoy" instead of "User:J.delanoy"... *bangs head on desk* J.delanoygabsadds 19:06, 19 June 2008 (UTC)
No, you are definitely not alone. Everyone makes mistakes, and accidentally creating a user sub-page in the mainspace is not really a big deal, nor is it hard to fix. To make truly awesome mistakes, you usually have to be an admin (and I am not one). Take a look at our Wall of Shame if you want to see the really big mistakes... J.delanoygabsadds 19:17, 19 June 2008 (UTC)
Ha, well, I didn't pay attention to that when I looked at your userpage on fr.wp. On en.wp, we most often use Image:Admin_mop.PNG to pictorially represent admins. Also, my oversight of your adminship on fr.wp most likely was not helped by the fact that I don't read a word of French (except au revoir, bonjour, garçon, and Parlez vous françias?). Anyways, in light of that fact, I guess my tone in the preceding comments was kind of condescending, so I offer you my apologies. J.delanoygabsadds 19:56, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

Interwiki vandalism issue[edit]

Hi, you will probably be interested by 195.221.155.2 (talk · contribs), who appears to share far-right views, engage in vandalism, and has a troubling editing pattern, related to Vincent Rousseau (see recent edits by Rousseau Bataille de Verdun - change of numbers, Pétain - adds of fascist books - not reverted yet), etc. Utilisateur:195.221.155.2 was blocked. See User talk:195.221.155.2

rollback[edit]

Hi, as you are a trusted user on French Wikipedia, I have granted you WP:ROLLBACK. Regards, John Vandenberg (chat) 00:42, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

File:Tiwa Savage's studio portrait.jpg[edit]

Hi Kropotkine 113, I specifically applied the keep local tag when I uploaded this image using the file upload wizard. I do not want this file on Commons. I only want it to be used on the English Wikipedia. Also, OTRS volunteers haven't verify the file yet. versace1608 (talk) 18:06, 13 February 2014 (UTC)

Hi. I didn't see the "keep local tag" and I don't know what it is. I just saw a file under CC-BY-SA 1.0 eligible to Wikimedia Commons and I moved it. OTRS volunteer can verify the license validity the file being either on en.wikipedia or on wikiemdia commons. I'm not aware of any difficulty about this.
