Adding/changing categories

I noticed that The Green Party of Canada to elect new leader is included in category: Elections and not category: Elections in Canada and wanted to correct this, but it appears that published articles are not edittable on WN? Thanks in advance, Ottawahitech (talk) 04:10, 10 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Ottawahitech: That article is archived, and so is not publicly editable. I've just made that change, however for future I believe the standard process is to place a request on the talk page. LivelyRatification (talk) 04:18, 10 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@LivelyRatification, Thank you for replying to my questions. I am not a regular participant on WN, and will probably forget your answer by the next time I visit. I regularly help other wikis with categorization work, even on those I rarely visit. It takes me a fraction of the time to improve the category directly, instead trying to explain what needs to be done.
Thanks for correcting The Green Party of Canada to elect new leader. Ottawahitech (talk) 05:46, 10 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]


when I click on "Try out the new interface improvements Search, language switching, sticky toolbar, table of contents, and more" at the top of the page I get a message warning me that if I do this it will change my skin.

Will it hurts? will I get my old skin back or will my skin color change forever? Thanks in advance, Ottawahitech (talk) 20:28, 25 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
