Wikisource[edit]

Wikisource kept getting recreated by vandals, so I turned it into a protected soft redirect. Thoughts? Also, in Category:Review, there are two templates awaiting someone to sight them. One was edited by me and the other I think you are better qualified to check. Cheers, --SVTCobra 21:01, 31 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Protecting that page makes sense. The alternative is to delete it and protect it do only admins can create it. However, it is also linked from several pages including an article, which is fine. I’ve reviewed those two templates. [24Cr][talk] 21:51, 31 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Horror film[edit]

Dear friend I have a request for you for the article horror film on Wikipedia can you restore the 2010s section and the 2020s section on there? 152.86.164.35 (talk) 19:27, 5 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Some sort of troll. Making the same request to multiple others. [24Cr][talk] 20:44, 5 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Speedy[edit]

There are a few items in Category:Speedy deletion which I thought I'd leave for you to evaluate. Cheers, --SVTCobra 14:28, 13 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Just a reminder, those items are still sitting in speedy. Cheers, --SVTCobra 18:22, 23 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Oops. Deleted (although probably should have been in DR I guess). Cheers. [24Cr][talk] 20:44, 23 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
True, that. But DR has become a multi-year process and I didn't nominate these. Cheers, --SVTCobra 21:13, 23 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Unblock?[edit]

You unblocked without an on-wiki appeal. User seems to abuse the privilege. I have to delete the pages they created. Is there a back-story? --SVTCobra 00:27, 24 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Specifically at Ltshivampandey which will be deleted by the time you see this. --SVTCobra 00:29, 24 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
My mistake. They appeared to have appealed on their talk page. Their English isn’t great but I got the sense it was someone who didn’t understand that this isn’t Wikipedia. [24Cr][talk] 09:33, 24 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

High numbers of unexplained Heptitis cases reported in very young children[edit]

Hi Cromium, Thank you for help you extended to me when this article was still in my user space. I did not know how to move the article into the newsroom other than by a copy& paste, which unfortunately does not maintain the contribution history, which I would have preferred. Cheers, Ottawahitech (talk) 21:54, 8 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Ottawahitech: No problem. Thank you for starting this interesting article. I’ve merged your user-subpage into the main-space page. [24Cr][talk] 23:18, 8 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks for nominating JJLiu112 to be reviewer[edit]

Hi, in January this year I missed the nomination and discussion process. Completely appreciate your nomination and the help to them with the getting started. Thanks!!! --Gryllida (talk) 00:34, 2 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

July 2022[edit]

I submitted an article for a review 3 days ago I don't know much about article writing though but I'm very concerned about the reviewers because article's stay for long without being reviewed I don't know if it's because the reviewers are inactive or it takes long for an article to be reviewed? Emkay2004 (talk) 15:08, 4 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Emkay2004: Thank you for the article and sorry for the delay in reviewing. Unfortunately, it has passed it’s freshness. I’ve left a short review on the article talkpage. Sadly this wiki has been in decline for some time now. There are various reasons for this but primarily I think we are all short of spare time. Certainly I can barely devote more than a few minutes a day often. [24Cr][talk] 20:07, 4 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I went to the best party ever...[edit]

...and you weren't there. You missed out on something awesome. The night life in Germany is amazing.-Late 1980s night lifer (talk) 22:02, 5 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

2 New articles[edit]

Recently I put up the following two articles up for review:
https://en.wikinews.org/wiki/2022_Fields_Medals_awarded
https://en.wikinews.org/wiki/Former_Japanese_Prime_Minister_Shinzo_Abe_assassinated
I ask you to kindly review them, seeing as there is virtually no activity on enWN. And also, if you feel it appropriate, for the autochecked user group to be assigned to my account. MxYamato (talk) 12:52, 8 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi[edit]

I started the SAPS article, just wondering if it's almost ready for a review? Thanks. Barty03 (talk) 12:24, 31 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Abuse filter[edit]

Hi, do you know why the phrase "my name is" is a disallowed phrase on user pages? See: Special:AbuseFilter/22 ... Cheers, --SVTCobra 12:41, 15 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@SVTCobra: I believe it was included because it appeared to be part of the formula used by some spambots. Their user pages usually gave an introductory "hey, my name is…" followed by a location, a hobby and then a link to a commercial website (the latter being the real purpose of the Userpage). I’m guessing that User:BKMoqubane hit at least two of those requirements when they tried to create their Userpage. Since they seem to be a genuine person (most spambots don’t respond to the abuse filter), I’d suggest either creating the page for them or recommending they wait to become autoconfirmed in four or five days.

{{Bots}}[edit]

Hi. What do you make of these two users and their use of {{bots}}? User:梯隊快報 and User:悠遊卡. Cheers, SVTCobra 13:11, 17 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Staleness change: temporary or permanent?[edit]

The trial is over, so would the change remain as-is or be reverted back to what it was before the trial? George Ho (talk) 20:51, 23 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
