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? (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]

2 New articles edit

Recently I put up the following two articles up for review:
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]

Inder Shergill edit

Could you also salt that, please? It's been recreated a few times now and is a title that will never need to be legitimately used. Heavy Water (talk) 18:09, 12 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Normally I wait for a third creation because it confirms the situation. However, I agree with your reasoning here. [24Cr][talk] 18:23, 12 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Also, would you happen to have the time to review US House of Representatives forms subcommittee on "the Weaponization of the Federal Government"? It's OR and has been sitting around a couple days, so I really don't want it to go stale. Thanks! --Heavy Water (talk) 19:05, 12 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Wikinews:Writing contest 2023 edit

Hello. We've created Wikinews:Writing contest 2023, which will start on February 1 and end on May 1. It is modeled on the successful 2010 and 2013 contests. As a reviewer who has recently been inactive, it would be a great time for you to rejoin. If you are interested in signing up, please do so at Wikinews:Writing contest 2023#Entrants and create a category for the articles you submit. Heavy Water (talk) 04:03, 27 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks edit

Thanks for being around to mop up. The speedy deletion queue has been out-of-control for weeks, and none had been performed in a week. FYI, SVTCobra (who is busy in real life) generally protects categories at edit=autoconfirmed and move=sysop, especially if an LTA such as that targets them. Heavy Water (talk) 17:50, 20 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Oh, also, could you take a look at this? A global rollbacker flagged it as a potential mismatch. Heavy Water (talk) 19:43, 20 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Done. [24Cr][talk] 14:06, 23 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks also for mopping up after that IP vandal. Yngvadottir (talk) 22:27, 24 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Nice to see you around edit

Hi Cromium/Archive 6,

I am glad to see you continue to be semi-active. Take care Ottawahitech (talk) 17:35, 7 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
