Coinage Act of 1873[edit]

The IP whom you reverted on Gold dollar is also active on Coinage Act of 1873. The individual seems to know something about the subject but they're (in my opinion) a bit too bold in announcing their intent to rewrite the article, especially since they started out by making elementary mistakes like getting the effective date wrong. Could you help keep an eye on things?--Wehwalt (talk) 13:26, 4 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

New editors were more successful with this new tool.

The New topic tool helps editors create new ==Sections== on discussion pages. New editors are more successful with this new tool. You can read the report. Soon, the Editing team will offer this to all editors at most WMF-hosted wikis. You can join the discussion about this tool for the English Wikipedia is at Wikipedia:Village pump (proposals)#Enabling the New Topic Tool by default. You will be able to turn it off in the tool or at Special:Preferences#mw-prefsection-editing-discussion.

The Editing team plans to change the appearance of talk pages. These are separate from the changes made by the mw:Desktop improvements project and will appear in both Vector 2010 and Vector 2022. The goal is to add some information and make discussions look visibly different from encyclopedia articles. You can see some ideas at Wikipedia talk:Talk pages project#Prototype Ready for Feedback.

Signpost article[edit]

Hi @ZLEA, I'm doing a Signpost article on userboxes, and selected your name as one of five users to be interviewed. I have some questions about your experience in userboxes:

  1. How did you first get into userboxes?
  2. How long have you been using/creating userboxes?
  3. Why do you like userboxes?
  4. What's your favorite userbox and why?

Thanks in advance for your input. Regards, Urban Versis 32KB(talk / contribs) 02:13, 27 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Urban Versis 32 Thanks for choosing me. Here are my answers:
  1. I joined WikiProject Userboxes in February 2017, just over a month after joining Wikipedia, although I do not remember what first got me into userboxes.
  2. My first userboxes were service awards, which I added to my userpage to encourage myself to gain more editing experience. Within a few months created my first userboxes in February 2017. I have not created very many userboxes, but my early experience with userboxes is what sparked my passion for template editing.
  3. I believe userboxes remind us that there is a person behind every userpage. They aren't just some pretty templates, they allow users to express themselves on their userpages. I also believe they help us build trust with our fellow Wikipedians by encouraging transparency, as they are an easy way to identify one's own biases, conflicts of interest, and, more importantly, our strengths.
  4. My favorite userbox is one of my own creations (yes, I'm biased); User:ZLEA/Turboencabulator. The userbox is a play on the Turbo encabulator, a fictional machine which somehow found its way into a 1962 General Electric supplies catalogue. As an engineering student, I naturally found the turbo encabulator to be particularly amusing; too amusing to not be made into a userbox.

Let me know if you need anything else. - ZLEA T\C 02:44, 29 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Edits made on Jf-17[edit]

Hai @ZLEA: Can you please verify the latest edits made on Jf-17 Thunder page by a user named 'An Asphalt'? I'm now using wikipedia on my phone, I find it hard to do it. It appears that he's making unsourced changed on specification. I can't access the cited sources except archived links. Can you please verify those edits? Thank you Echo1Charlie (talk) 09:58, 27 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Echo1Charlie Sorry I couldn't reply earlier. From what I can tell, the changes they are making are supported by the previously provided sources. The source appears to have been somewhat recently updated, so the archived sources are out of date and should be updated. I'll do that shortly. - ZLEA T\C 02:52, 29 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Technical news

  • The Wikimania 2022 Hackathon will take place virtually from 11 August to 14 August.

Coins of the United States dollar[edit]

Hello, I am not sure why the ring cent and the large cent is included, but not the Flying Eagle cent; they all seem to be different denominations of the cent. The "small cent" is not a denomination, just a subsection title on Wikipedia. Altanner1991 (talk) 01:36, 11 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

ZLEA In numismatics, "denomination" tends to mean more than face value. Numismatists will sometimes consider certain historical coins of the same face value to be separate denominations, especially if the coin had undergone a major change and would be unrecognizable to the average person if found in circulation today. The large cent and small cent are widely treated as separate denominations by numismatists. This treatment is not exclusive to cents, and can be seen with the two-cent billon/two-cent piece, three-cent bronze/three-cent nickel/three-cent silver, half dime/nickel, and gold dollar/dollar coin. The silver center cent and ring cent do not fit in either the large cent or small cent categories, so they too are treated as separate denominations. I hope this clears up any confusion. - ZLEA T\C 01:58, 11 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Pinging Altanner1991, I accidentally pinged myself in the last reply. - ZLEA T\C 02:00, 11 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
