Edit invisibility requests[edit]

Could you please hide the edits of user: CLCStudent (talk) 15:51, 11 September 2018 (UTC)

@CLCStudent: I thought about that, and personally would like to, but the content doesn't actually qualify for revision deletion. Yes, the vandalism was an image of a penis, but nothing grossly insulting, degrading, or offensive was stated in the edits or in edit summaries. While certainly objectionable in the manner it was added, the penis is itself not vulgar. North America1000 16:06, 11 September 2018 (UTC)

Tying articles together[edit]

Should there be a new article somehow somewhere?

Anna Frodesiak (talk) 23:16, 14 September 2018 (UTC)

I don't know; I don't know much about these topics, other than drawstring-related stuff, which is self-explanatory. North America1000 23:22, 14 September 2018 (UTC)
Fair enough. I will sort it out. Many thanks. :) Anna Frodesiak (talk) 23:23, 14 September 2018 (UTC)

I might start drawstring bag. I made a commonscat for it earlier. Tons! Anna Frodesiak (talk) 12:21, 15 September 2018 (UTC)

If you start it, then I can potentially contribute. However, the topic itself may be a bit BORING. Ha ha! North America1000 08:49, 16 September 2018 (UTC)

Food linkages[edit]

@Anna Frodesiak: Check out Roujiamo, Donkey Burger and donkey meat. Regarding Roujiamo, a case can be made that it is the world's first burger. North America1000 12:06, 15 September 2018 (UTC)

Very interesting! So, yes, I could see that as the first burger and even the first sandwich. Ha! Anna Frodesiak (talk) 12:21, 15 September 2018 (UTC)

Do you want video of Roujiamo? I can get that easily! Is video valuable? Also, we have no video of the flaming wok cooking thing. I can get that too. Great lead image, right? Anna Frodesiak (talk) 12:23, 15 September 2018 (UTC)

When I say "video of Roujiamo", I mean video of them taking the meat and chunks of fat, far less than they seemed to last year, out of the pot and over-chopping them up until it is an utter paste even if you tell them to stop and that they are ruining it and then in ends up with no texture at all and the whole thing is basically a wobbling pile of mostly fat that you swear you will never eat again as you bite into the overly salty mush inside an obviously under-salted or salt free, tasteless bread. Then you feel poorly about ten minutes later for about half and hour much in the way one does after stupidly eating a McDonald's hamburger. Anna Frodesiak (talk) 22:58, 15 September 2018 (UTC)

@Anna Frodesiak: Hey, a video would work in an External links section of the Roujiamo article. You can use the {{External media}} template. We should work on this article and make it GA, or at least improve it a bit! North America1000 00:24, 16 September 2018 (UTC)
GA? Me? This is why I like you. You sense of humour! :) :) :) Have you actually seen what I write? I would be fired from a fifth grade school newspaper for being rubbish. :)
Also, my Wikipedia time is really limited these days. I should restrict my edits to blowing vandals out the airlock and that sort of thing.
As for a video, why not a Commons video in the article body, like Zongzi#Description or the super-awesome Puffed grain#Manufacture? Anna Frodesiak (talk) 19:29, 16 September 2018 (UTC)
That would work too. Perhaps even better, as the video can be seen directly in the article. If you add it, WP:READERS will view it. North America1000 14:16, 17 September 2018 (UTC)
I love Kit Kats in Japan!! Anna Frodesiak (talk) 18:37, 18 September 2018 (UTC)
  • @Anna Frodesiak: I've added a bit more to the Roujiamo article, but sources are a bit minimal where I'm at. If you can read Chinese, my guess is that more Chinese-language reliable sources are available. For example, I was not able to verify anything in the Other names section of the article. North America1000 06:34, 18 September 2018 (UTC)
Chinese sources for, say, bridges, are problematic. Sources Roujiamo would be a nightmare. For bridges, you have to sift through tons of meaningless sentences like "Great effort is being made to create this new improvement for the area." For Roujiamo, just find a source that is non-conflict of interest is difficult. Other issues are that the article will be bald on facts, bloggy, unreliable, full of rubbish opinions, etc. Anna Frodesiak (talk) 18:37, 18 September 2018 (UTC)
@Anna Frodesiak: Yeah, the Kit Kat thing is something. Regarding Roujiamo, oh well, don't need rubbish sources. As a consolation for you, there's always pizza! North America1000 18:53, 18 September 2018 (UTC)
There's always pizza

I am so overdue for pizza. I'm going to make some. Anna Frodesiak (talk) 18:59, 18 September 2018 (UTC)

@Anna Frodesiak: I'm a big pizza fan. Well, I've improved the Donkey burger article a bit. It still needs more work, though. North America1000 19:42, 18 September 2018 (UTC)
A donkey burger... eat up!
I would probably eat a donkey burger. Would you? Anna Frodesiak (talk) 20:04, 18 September 2018 (UTC)
Heeee Haawwwww!
@Anna Frodesiak: Absolutely, although I couldn't say whether or not I'd have it again after trying it. One article I found stated that the meat is tough, so it can be stewed for up to twenty hours sometimes. At that point, it would at least go down. Heeee Haaawwwww! North America1000 20:53, 18 September 2018 (UTC)
Nooooooo, don't eat me!

Article Robert Simonson[edit]

Hello Northamerica1000, I had just filled the bare references with reFill. Is the ′linkrot′ tag removable now? --Gpkp (utc) 06:01, 18 September 2018 (UTC)

Hello @Gpkp: Reference #8 is still a bare url. North America1000 06:26, 18 September 2018 (UTC)
@Northamerica1000:, I've filled it up manually, so have removed the tag. Thank you. --Gpkp (utc) 07:55, 18 September 2018 (UTC)
@Gpkp: Thanks very much for improving the article. North America1000 16:26, 18 September 2018 (UTC)
You're welcome Northamerica1000. Once the article is into the mainspace from draft, does it need to be reviewed by a new-page reviewer? --Gpkp (utc) 03:35, 19 September 2018 (UTC)
