Tagging abandoned


When articles are tagged as abandoned, it is required to include the date as parameter 1. However, the easiest way to do this, is to just use {{subst:aband}} which will automatically add the date for you. Cheers, --SVTCobra 15:32, 21 March 2022 (UTC)Reply

By the way, is 2021-22 Sunshine Coast Cricket Association Grand Finals get mixed results due to wet fields stale or is the event yet to happen? 2006nishan178713t@lk 15:33, 21 March 2022 (UTC)Reply
I don't rightly know. It is a quite local league. Better to ask RockerballAustralia. Cheers, SVTCobra 16:05, 21 March 2022 (UTC)Reply
@RockerballAustralia: 2006nishan178713t@lk 16:40, 21 March 2022 (UTC)Reply
I think that article is abandoned. I could get to it later today my time with some added details from Saturday if I wasn’t already busy. —RockerballAustralia contribs 23:31, 21 March 2022 (UTC)Reply

Support for Ukraine


Hello. I thank you for your support for Ukraine and the link to the UN donation page. I have relations in Ukraine, so it is very dear to me and the humanitarian crisis breaks my heart and causes me endless worry. That being said, I need to caution you about something. The flag/map (File:Flag map of Ukrainian People's Republic.svg) includes a huge land mass (bottom right) which has never been part of any state bearing the name Ukraine. It looks like it includes modern-day Krasnodar Krai, Rostov Oblast, Stavropol Krai and more. Roughly, I think it corresponds to the Kuban People's Republic which over 100 years ago sought a union with Ukraine, but this was never realized.

Suffice it to say, this area is not territory which Ukraine claims and is not part of any modern dispute. I think this map would be deeply offensive to any Russian, including those opposed to the current war. I do not know the motivations of the person who created this map, but I suggest you don't use it. This File:Stop War in Ukraine (51904455977).jpg would be much better. Or a simple flag. There are probably countless other images on Commons you could use. Cheers, --SVTCobra 17:38, 21 March 2022 (UTC)Reply

Thank you for correcting me. Every day after listening to the news about Ukraine, I feel really sad and concerned about the Ukrainian citizens. I hope the situation improves soon. 2006nishan178713t@lk 17:47, 21 March 2022 (UTC)Reply
I wasn't correcting you, in my view, just informing you. Most people outside of South-Eastern Europe only have a vague idea of what the outline of Ukraine looks like. Cheers, --SVTCobra 18:28, 21 March 2022 (UTC)Reply
Okay, Thank you for informing me then. :) 2006nishan178713t@lk 18:59, 21 March 2022 (UTC)Reply
You are more than welcome! Слава Україні! --SVTCobra 19:31, 21 March 2022 (UTC)Reply
BTW, if you really liked using an outline of Ukraine, here's one with the correct borders but without the words and bloody hand-print: File:Outline of Ukraine.svg. I just stumbled upon it. Cheers, --SVTCobra 23:00, 21 March 2022 (UTC)Reply
Yeah, it looks nice 2006nishan178713t@lk 04:14, 22 March 2022 (UTC)Reply
@SVTCobra, What are your views on this GSK rejects three Unilever bids to buy consumer healthcare arm, says unit was "fundamentally undervalued" as a featured article? Vote your choice at Wikinews:Featured article candidates 2006nishan178713t@lk 18:48, 28 March 2022 (UTC)Reply
Yeah, I know it is sitting there. I haven't gotten around to reading it yet, though. BTW, don't feed the troll. He craves attention. Here's an essay from our sister project. Cheers, SVTCobra 18:58, 28 March 2022 (UTC)Reply
Got it! 2006nishan178713t@lk 19:03, 28 March 2022 (UTC)Reply

Re: Changes



Please take care to review the changes I make and the edit summaries pre-publication. A lot of issues are repeated across articles, which get tedious to remove. For instance: unnecessary wikitext around infobox & sources; clunky wording around attributions.

Thank you for your diligence and your contributions. Recognise this comment is in the context of being a very good, capable writer thus far. JJLiu112 (talk) 18:59, 24 March 2022 (UTC)Reply

Sure will do 2006nishan178713t@lk 03:18, 25 March 2022 (UTC)Reply

Creating categories


Hello. The rule of thumb for creating categories is that we have at least three articles that would be included in the category. Cheers, --SVTCobra 19:49, 2 April 2022 (UTC)Reply

Brooklyn subway shooting


Hi. I hope you didn't get personally insulted by my comments. I saw you moved the article all the way to "Story preparation/Brooklyn subway shooting suspect found guilty" ... this will probably take at least two years. I am sure there will be focal events before that, but if you want to wait, it is your decision. Cheers, --SVTCobra 04:49, 17 April 2022 (UTC)Reply

No, that's alright, you have the right criticise my actions if I do something wrong. If there will be any focal event in the next few weeks, I will develop the article. Anyways, Happy Easter !!

I was just about to say ...


... this indelible image is a real stamp created long before the Moskva sank. Well, "long" being the month of March, and inspired by the Attack on Snake Island. Yes, Western media is bringing it up again because now it is iconic. But it seems you recognized all this, so kudos to you. Cheers, --SVTCobra 06:44, 17 April 2022 (UTC)Reply

I came to know about this stamp last week. 2006nishan178713t@lk 07:05, 17 April 2022 (UTC)Reply

Best wishes for your studies and good luck on the exams


I am sorry I haven't had time for many reviews and just pop in for spam deletion. So, I am sad that PM Modi and the Director-General of WHO inaugurate the Global Centre for Traditional Medicine in India could not be published. It didn't help that it was 2 days old when initially submitted for review. All the best and cheers, --SVTCobra 17:42, 23 April 2022 (UTC)Reply

@SVTCobra, Yep! I wrote that article really late. Anyways, thank you for your wishes. I am thinking of writing some more articles after my exams finish off in late May and then I will be out of town.
If you are wondering which exam I would give its the All India Secondary School Examination. If you are curious even more, here's the timetable- ( Out of all these in the timetable, I will be sitting for only six subjects (we get choice)... 2006nishan178713t@lk 17:54, 23 April 2022 (UTC)Reply
