Happy Birthday![edit]


Hello, Zekerocks11,

First, happy birthday! I hope you are having a pleasant birthday weekend.

I just wanted to offer moral support for your efforts at ANI, even though I don't agree with them. When I was a new editor, I spent a lot of time on noticeboards but now I only visit them if I'm involved in a discussion because they can be such volatile places. Posting a proposal like you did puts YOU under the microscope as well, the behavior of all participants is examined and I think you are fortunate that there wasn't any backlash on you. Most editors new to ANI don't realize that they are putting themselves up for inspection along with the editor they are complaining about. ANI is one of the most visited and high profile pages on the project and when you file a case, you are putting yourself in the spotlight. I recommend reviewing Wikipedia:ANI advice.

If you file a complaint there in the future, you need to have all of your diffs/evidence ready to show your case and keep your comments brief...long diatribes are rarely successful. In general, I'd only file a case there for intractable problems that need to be urgently addressed. Less urgent situations are better served by contacting an admin directly on their talk page or using a different noticeboard like ANEW. Thanks and, again, happy birthday! Liz Read!

The above is good advice. The diatribe you posted at ANI reflects badly on you, and underlines your status as an incompetent newbie. You clearly have no idea. Best wishes for your future though. - Roxy the dog 14:20, 4 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The comments that you have just given me are not necessary, Roxy. Thank you, Liz, for your advice and nice comments, and I thank you for the birthday wishes. Unfortunately, I am going to have to ask Roxy to no longer comment on my talk page. The phrases "incompetent newbie" and me having "no idea" were not necessary, and rather hurtful. Even as it may, I am rather new, as I've only been active on Wikipedia for about a month now. We all make mistakes as new editors, and this will be another for the books. Mistakes are vital in the learning curve. I wish you well in your future. Best, Zeke (talk) 17:02, 4 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Zeke, FWIW, if you'd asked me that question, I'd have advised anyone who hasn't yet discovered ANI to stay as far away as possible. I'd advise anyone with 1100 edits: Don't go there unless someone drags you there. If you ever think you really do need to go there, go read the most recent three archives before posting anything.

I didn't realize ANI was Wikipedia's version of the war grounds but I guess we learn something new everyday. I guess I'll steer clear of there then and keep doing what I was. Best, Zeke (talk) 02:06, 5 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Daniel Fernández Delgado moved to draftspace[edit]

An article you recently created, Daniel Fernández Delgado, is not suitable as written to remain published. It needs more citations from reliable, independent sources. (?) Information that can't be referenced should be removed (verifiability is of central importance on Wikipedia). I've moved your draft to draftspace (with a prefix of "Draft:" before the article title) where you can incubate the article with minimal disruption. I did this rather than removing the uncited material in the article, which I felt would be more disruptive. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask on my talk page. When you have the required sourcing (and every assertion needs a source), and thus is ready for mainspace, please click on the "Submit your draft for review!" button at the top of the page. Or feel free to ping me to take another look.Onel5969 TT me 13:50, 7 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I translated it using the translator tool. I am wondering why this was moved to draft space as I was prompted to translate this, and I believe I put in all of the sources that weren't dead links. If articles need to be translated, then I would then be wondering why people are being prompted to translate articles, which are put in to a list and are given to people, if those articles do not contain enough sources to be suitable for the English wikipedia. Furthermore, instead of putting a cleanup tag on citations for it, why move it to draft space entirely? I understand that isn't against guidelines, but I feel as if moving it to a draft space was the most disruptive as I know nothing on the topic, I simply translated it. I have lots of questions for this move here, and I look forward to hearing back soon. Best, Zeke (talk) 03:18, 8 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

WikiLove brownie template[edit]

I have noticed that, when you placed the WikiLove brownie template onto the talkpage of Among Us for POTUS, you did not substitute it, leading to it not functioning as intended. Please substitute the template next time you use it by using... wait, I can't demonstrate it here, it just substitutes it even with the nowiki tag, and watch out for other templates that you may need to substitute in instead of placing in normally.

Principality of Seborga[edit]


This article Principality of Seborga has its own category in Wikimedia Commons, separate from the municipality of Seborga. You can check it.

Yours sincerely, (talk) 18:44, 10 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

That is completely my bad, I viewed "Commonscat" as an edit test at first glance without looking further into it. Sorry about that one. Happy editing! Best, Zeke (talk) 18:48, 10 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Your GA nomination of Xenoblade Chronicles 3[edit]

The article Xenoblade Chronicles 3 you nominated as a good article has been placed on hold Symbol wait.svg. The article is close to meeting the good article criteria, but there are some minor changes or clarifications needing to be addressed. If these are fixed within 7 days, the article will pass; otherwise it may fail. See Talk:Xenoblade Chronicles 3 and Talk:Xenoblade Chronicles 3/GA1 for issues which need to be addressed.

Your GA nomination of Xenoblade Chronicles 3[edit]

The article Xenoblade Chronicles 3 you nominated as a good article has failed Symbol oppose vote.svg; see Talk:Xenoblade Chronicles 3 for reasons why the nomination failed. If or when these points have been taken care of, you may apply for a new nomination of the article. Message delivered by ChristieBot, on behalf of Shooterwalker -- Shooterwalker (talk) 17:42, 3 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

On a personal note, you should give this another try when you're ready. The article came a long way, and you can always ask other editors for help. Either way, I hope you return to Wikipedia whenever you've had some time off. Happy new year. Shooterwalker (talk) 17:57, 3 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
