Wikipedia:Enforce inclusion of categories[edit]

Hi, I've made a proposal to change the software to prevent mainspace pages from being saved unless they contain a category. Since you've done a lot of work at User:Bluemoose/Uncategorised good articles, which would be affected by this proposal, I'd appreciate your thoughts! bd2412 T 23:39, 4 August 2006 (UTC)


Thanks for being nice about the Eureka edits. I thought editors would get really loud about my edits (I guess not much time has gone by yet). Oh boy! --al95521 23:57, 28 January 2007 (UTC)


As a new editor I appreciate you kindness. I followed a couple of your edits to see your work and I have a question about your Hollow-body comment. How do you make a merge proposal? I found a page Adventure capital and I think it should be merged or redirected to Venture capital. Can you give me any suggestions? Thanks again. --al95521 23:57, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

Here is the wiki article on Merges

When using wikipedia example pages, I have a standard way of doing it:
A. Find a usage that you like of the thing you are trying to do

1.Hit edit on the example page 2.copy the text of the example you want to use 3.hit the back button or close without saving

B. (Note: I usually have a tab (firefox) open with the page I am editing)

1. Paste the example text 2. modify it to fit your needs 3. Hit the preview button before saving 4. say what your edit is before saving

Jack Black[edit]

Sorry about the revert on Jack Black yesterday. It didn't occur to me that you'd be creating the page you wikilinked, after changing the link. Salamurai 17:41, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

No problem. It took me a really long time. Vampyrecat 03:56, 30 January 2007 (UTC)

Here is a WikiCookie award for your help. Thanks!


I've read your comment about the notability guidelines which are multiplying like rabbits. At minimum I'd like to see them trimmed back as the permutations are out of control. I'm trying to get some of the most onerous retagged as essays, and trim the rest. In a perfect world I'd like to see us relying on verifiability. Please join in some of the discussions.

Tibet: el joc de rol[edit]

Hi Vampyre. I took a look at Maqui Edicions' official website and other possible sources. I think I found some external links that should satisfy your request.

  • A personal comment: the Tibet role-playing game had also been translated into Spanith since Maqui Edicions had produced two different books, one into Catalan and the other one into Spanish. Those are the bibliographical references, following the rules I learned in Barcelona and Paris universities:
    • For the Catalan translation: ST. CLAIRE-KING Brian, Tíbet, el joc de rol, Maqui Edicions S.C., Girona, April 2009, translation from English to Catalan by Mateu Pastoret i Jou, 222 p. il. 27x21 cm, softcover, ISBN 978-84-935248-2-1
    • For the Spanish translation: ST. CLAIRE-KING Brian, Tíbet, el juego de rol, Maqui Edicions S.C., Girona, September 2009, translation from English to Spanish by Mateu Pastoret i Jou, 222 p. il. 27x21 cm, softcover, ISBN 978-84-935248-3-8

As you can notice the dimensions and translator are the same, only change the title, language of the book, publication date and ISBN code. Should we indicate "paperback" instead of "softcover"? In original English bibliographical references I often see the simple word "soft."...

Now (but not related to Wikipedia) lets take a look at the guy situated on the right side of this picture (at the side of the only girl of the group), as you can see it in the Ayudar jugando 2009 meeting webpage. He's Eusebi, a Catalan guy who I personally know. I met him in Catalonia more than 15 years ago, when RPGs where still raising in Spain, an expert roleplayer. His collection of role-playing games is... awesome ! a real mountain of books...

And that's all, I hope I was helpful to you. Don't hesitate anyway to request again my help if something's not clear or if you need more information or data. Regards! Kintaro (talk) 09:02, 16 February 2010 (UTC)

I'm glad my help semt to be enough for you, but I forgot to explain the relation between the three links I gave you and the Tibet role-playing game:
And that's all! Good luck! Kintaro (talk) 00:26, 17 February 2010 (UTC)

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

For the guideline on reviewing, see Wikipedia:Reviewing. Being granted reviewer rights doesn't change how you can edit articles even with pending changes. The general help page on pending changes can be found here, and the general policy for the trial can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. —DoRD (talk) 14:59, 16 July 2010 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Pending changes/Straw poll on interim usage[edit]

Hi. As you recently commented in the straw poll regarding the ongoing usage and trial of Pending changes, this is to notify you that there is an interim straw poll with regard to keeping the tool switched on or switching it off while improvements are worked on and due for release on November 9, 2010. This new poll is only in regard to this issue and sets no precedent for any future usage. Your input on this issue is greatly appreciated. Off2riorob (talk) 23:52, 20 September 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Free RPG Day[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 Free RPG Day 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 club, but it does not 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 "Click here to 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, you can place a request here. Inanygivenhole (talk) 23:59, 9 September 2013 (UTC)

It was already gone! It did need some updating, but speedy deletion? Oh well, that's wikipedia for you *sigh*. I'll go through the undelete request, I suppose, since that's what it's there for. --Vampyrecat (talk) 18:00, 10 September 2013 (UTC)

Nomination of Tibet: The Roleplaying Game for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Tibet: The Roleplaying Game is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Tibet: The Roleplaying Game until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. Inanygivenhole (talk) 19:22, 12 September 2013 (UTC)

This help request has been answered. If you need more help, you can ask another question on your talk page, contact the responding user(s) directly on their user talk page, or consider visiting the Teahouse.

I'm not sure what to do because every time I get a notice that an article I worked on is being deleted, it's over with by the time I get the notice. I don't WANT to care, but I did spend many hours working on articles in the RPG project in 2009-2010 and it seems sat that they are all being deleted without fair discussion or consensus.

I went to try to discuss it and the discussion was closed without even 24 hours of discussion. There was a merge suggestion, but the "main" article is now flagged for deletion as well. Another article I created a while back (Free RPG Day) was nominated for speedy deletion and then deleted but it didn't fit the category given in the speedy deletion process. There was no discussion of the Tibet article on Articles for Proposed Deletion, only on the Talk page of the article. Vampyrecat (talk) 02:48, 27 September 2013 (UTC)

Deletion discussions usually take a week, sometimes longer if consensus has not been established by then. The Tibet RPG discussion was open for two weeks, from 12 September until 27 September, and while few editors commented, their comments do correctly represent the state of the article: No reliable sources that are independent of the game, thus not enough notability for an article of its own. If I had expressed an opinion in that deletion discussion I would have agreed with those editors. The Vajra Enterprises article is not (and at a glance never was) nominated for deletion, though it suffers severe problems and has been tagged with the appropriate cleanup tags. Free RPG Day also wasn't deleted but was instead turned into a draft in your userspace. Given that much of the content wasn't based on the cited sources and that many of those sources were of rather dubious reliability, that seems an appropriate solution: This way you have a chance to improve the article without the threat of an immediate deletion nomination hanging over it. Huon (talk) 03:39, 27 September 2013 (UTC)
Thank you so much! The Free RPG Day article needed improvement, but it was speedily deleted without discussion. I had to ask for it to be placed in my user space so I could improve it. I'll look at the dates on the Tibet page when I have more time. I guess Tibet wasn't on my watch list. Thanks again! Vampyrecat (talk) 14:55, 27 September 2013 (UTC)
