July 2011[edit]

Hello, MissAlyx, I saw that you made a draft for a new article at User:MissAlyx/RealTimeRace. Accoring to WP:STALEDRAFT, "Short term hosting of potentially valid articles and other reasonable content under development or in active use is usually acceptable (the template {{userspace draft}} can be added to the top of the page to identify these)." But in this case, you haven't edited your draft for a long time. If you are done, please donate it by moving User:MissAlyx/RealTimeRace to a Wikipedia:WikiProject Abandoned Drafts subpage (a participant may help). If you are not done, please finish it and move it. If you abandoned it, you may request it for deletion by putting "{{db-u1}}" or donating it. Thank you. If no objection in 7 days, I will move it to the wikiproject. ~~EBE123~~ talkContribs 12:20, 28 July 2011 (UTC)

Cut and paste move[edit]

Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you recently tried to give Drug subculture a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into another page with a different name. This is known as a "cut and paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is needed for attribution and various other purposes. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.

In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page. This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other pages that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Cut and paste move repair holding pen. Thank you.

Ah, thank you for telling me this. I wasn't aware the "Move" tab existed. If I make moves in future I will of course do it in the more desirable manner.  Alyx  talk  11:24, 20 April 2012 (UTC)
