rollback[edit]

Wikipedia Rollbacker.svg

Hi Eman235. After reviewing your request for "rollbacker", I have enabled rollback on your account. Keep in mind these things when going to use rollback:

  • Getting rollback is no more momentous than installing Twinkle.
  • Rollback should be used to revert clear cases of vandalism only, and not good faith edits.
  • Rollback should never be used to edit war.
  • If abused, rollback rights can be revoked.
  • Use common sense.

If you no longer want rollback, contact me and I'll remove it. Also, for some more information on how to use rollback, see Wikipedia:New admin school/Rollback (even though you're not an admin). I'm sure you'll do great with rollback, but feel free to leave me a message on my talk page if you run into troubles or have any questions about appropriate/inappropriate use of rollback. Thank you for helping to reduce vandalism. Happy editing! Katietalk 14:05, 21 February 2016 (UTC)

Thanks Katie, I'll try not to do anything stupid! Face-smile.svg Eman235/talk 19:25, 21 February 2016 (UTC)

Hi, welcome to Wikipedia. If you have a reliable source, go ahead and add it back with a citation (see this page for how to do this). Otherwise it looks like original research, which is unacceptable on Wikipedia. Thanks, Eman235/talk 01:20, 23 February 2016 (UTC)

About the contribution[edit]

Hi, I'm sorry if I wrong about give the contribution, I edit reference no.9 for https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kereta_Api_Indonesia (Indonesian reference language) because it's have died reference in reference point 9.

So with our Indonesian media site, we create the new page reference but the reference actually same from the original reference we create.

This is the original http://www.mimunmedia.com/pembangunan-kereta-api-trans-borneo/ reference we have create for reference https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kereta_Api_Indonesia in point 9 or no.9.

We glad to help improve Wikipedia become contribution — Preceding unsigned comment added by 36.85.103.38 (talk) 01:16, 23 February 2016 (UTC)

Hi, I'm very sorry, that was my mistake. I have put it back now. Thanks! Eman235/talk 01:24, 23 February 2016 (UTC)
Thank you, we hope its useful for people who need the reference, specially people from Indonesia, love wikipedia — Preceding unsigned comment added by 36.85.103.38 (talk) 01:35, 23 February 2016 (UTC)

"If you don't see sharp then you might be flat"[edit]

I'm wondering what was the purpose of the recent run of edits like this, this and this. The best reason I can think of is that you can change the symbol on a standard ASCII keyboard - is that it? Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 10:05, 23 February 2016 (UTC)

That's part of it. The other main reason is that ♭ and display differently -- the difference is especially marked with # and . So it's mostly a display issue. Thanks for asking. Eman235/talk 20:21, 23 February 2016 (UTC)

citation for the sentence I added. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Savageking13 (talkcontribs) 06:48, 27 February 2016 (UTC)

Hm. I think a source explicitly stating that the crime mortality rate is "one of the highest" would be better; otherwise it violates the policy on original research, specifically the "synthesis of published material" section. Do you have any other sources (news reports, etc.)? Eman235/talk 06:55, 27 February 2016 (UTC)

Talk page etiquette[edit]

Thanks for the welcome!

I just have a couple questions:

Should I leave everything on my talk page as it is, or should I clear things like {{help me}} when I don't need them anymore?

Also, about my first UBX: How do I make it so people who use that UBX are added to a category (e.g. "Wikipedians who use the Awesome WM")?

Thanks again!Myoglobin (talk) 01:42, 12 March 2016 (UTC)Myoglobin

Hi, Myoglobin. Usually you should leave your talk page as is until it starts getting long, then you archive (see here for how to do that). You can remove the {{help me}} template if you want, though.
As for the userbox -- a category isn't really necessary, but if you want, you can add | usercategory = Wikipedians who use Awesome Window Manager to the end of the code. Then save the page. Category:Wikipedians who use Awesome Window Manager should appear at the bottom of the page as a red link. Click the link and add a description for the category, then press save. Done!

Phabricator task-T120738 List Of Contributors[edit]

Hello,

I am interested to work on the project List Of Contributors with phab task https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T120738 . I see that you endorsed the project in the community wishlist survey. It would be great help if you could share how you wish this tool should be implemented. As I am writing my proposal for the project for GSoC 2016 , I am working to make an outline to the project and a timeline for tasks to be completed. Your valuable suggestions are most welcome.

A complaint[edit]

Mr/Mrs/Miss Eman235

I wish to place a complaint regarding the April Fools face I received on my user page without rhyme or reason. As I have no sense of humor I shall proceed to complain most vigorously about that ridiculous decoration.

...

Nah, just kidding.

I love the face!! How did you do it??? (squeals happily)

Updated DYK query.svgOn 8 July 2016, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article ARCLIGHT, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that Julian Lage, a jazz guitarist, recorded his album ARCLIGHT on a Fender Telecaster? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/ARCLIGHT. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, ARCLIGHT), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000.

Let's reduce the environmental impact of the Wikimedia movement![edit]

Hi Eman235, please allow me to get in touch with you because you have stated sympathy with environmental causes on your user page. I would like to invite you to check out the Environmental impact project page on Meta, where I am trying to create some momentum to reduce the environmental impact of the Wikimedia movement. My first goal is to have all the Wikimedia servers run on renewable energy. Maybe you could show your support for this project as well by adding your signature? Thank you, --Gnom (talk) 19:37, 15 January 2017 (UTC)

An update from the Sustainability Initiative[edit]

Thank you for supporting the Sustainability Initiative!

Hi, Eman235! Thank you again for supporting the Sustainability Initiative, which aims at reducing the environmental impact of the Wikimedia movement. Over the past two years, more than 200 Wikipedians from all over the world have come together to push the Wikimedia movement towards greater sustainability.

What's new?

We are writing you this message because there is great news: The Board of Trustees of the Wikimedia Foundation has finally passed a resolution stating that the Foundation is committed to seeking ways to reduce the impact of its activities on the environment. Also, we have created a cool logo and found a nice name for the project which you can see on the right :-)

What's next?

Currently, we are working with Wikimedia Foundation staff to make sustainability a key priority for the selection of a new location for Wikimedia servers in Singapore. Also, we have presented the Wikimedia Foundation with a green energy roadmap to have all Wikimedia servers run on renewable energy by 2019.

Please help!

Let's keep this project moving forward – and there are several ways in which you can help:

  • Ask other Wikipedians to sign the project page as well – this way we can show the Wikimedia Foundation that this is an issue that the community really cares about.
  • Talk to Wikimedians you know about the importance of reducing the environmental impact of the Wikimedia movement.
  • Improve and translate the project page on Meta.

If you have any questions, you can contact us on on Meta. Again, thank you very much for your support! --Aubrey and Gnom (talk) 09:34, 9 April 2017 (UTC)

I noticed you are a beginner-level JavaScript programmer...[edit]

I found you listed at Category:User js-1 (probably because you posted the corresponding userbox on your user page), and thought you might be interested in improving your skills by getting involved with developing user scripts, hobnobbing with other JavaScript programmers, and organizing and improving JavaScript articles and support pages.

We do all of that and more at the JavaScript WikiProject.

Scripts undergoing development, and the state of JavaScript on Wikipedia, are discussed on the talk page.

For an overview of JavaScript coverage on Wikipedia, see Draft:Outline of JavaScript and Index of JavaScript-related articles. For everything on user scripts, see User:The Transhumanist/Outline of scripts.

The WikiProject also organizes every resource it can find about JavaScript out there, such as articles, books, tutorials, etc. See our growing Reference library.

If you would like to join the JavaScript WikiProject, feel free to add your name to the participants list.

Hope to see you there! The Transhumanist 16:15, 12 May 2017 (UTC)

June 2018 GOCE newsletter[edit]

Guild of Copy Editors June 2018 News
Writing Magnifying.PNG

Copyeditors progress.png

Welcome to the June 2018 GOCE newsletter, in which you will find Guild updates since the February edition. Progress continues to be made on the copyediting backlog, which has been reduced to 7 months and reached a new all-time low. Requests continue to be handled efficiently this year, with 272 completed by the end of May (an average completion time of 10.5 days). Fewer than 10% of these waited longer than 20 days, and the longest wait time was 29 days.

Wikipedia in general, and the Guild in particular, experienced a deep loss with the death on 20 March of Corinne. Corinne (a GOCE coordinator since 1 July 2016) was a tireless aide on the requests page, and her peerless copyediting is a part of innumerable GAs and FAs. Her good cheer, courtesy and tact are very much missed.

March drive: The goal was to remove June, July and August 2017 from our backlog and all February 2018 Requests (a total of 219 articles). This drive was an outstanding success, and by the end of the month all but eight of these articles were cleared. Of the 33 editors who signed up, 19 recorded 277 copy edits (425,758 words).

April blitz: This one-week copy-editing blitz ran from 15 through 21 April, focusing on Requests and the last eight articles tagged in August 2017. At the end of the week there were only 17 pending requests, with none older than 17 days. Of the nine editors who signed up, eight editors completed 22 copy edits (62,412 words).

May drive: We set out to remove September, October and November 2017 from our backlog and all April 2018 Requests (a total of 298 articles). There was great success this month with the backlog more than halved from 1,449 articles at the beginning of the month to a record low of 716 articles. Officially, of the 20 who signed up, 15 editors recorded 151 copy edits (248,813 words).

Coordinator elections: It's election time again. Nominations for Guild coordinators (who will serve a six-month term for the second half of 2018) have begun, and will close at 23:59 UTC on 15 June. All Wikipedia editors in good standing are eligible, and self-nominations are encouraged. Voting will take place between 00:01 UTC on 16 June and 23:59 UTC on 30 June.

June blitz: Stay tuned for this one-week copy-editing blitz, which will take place in mid-June.

Thank you all again for your participation; we wouldn't be able to achieve what we have without you! Cheers from your GOCE coordinators: Corinne, Jonesey95, Miniapolis, Reidgreg and Tdslk.

Thank-you for rearanging the words from the wikipedia page of Hakuna Matata to reference the song from the Lion King, and for having a sharp ear for quality music.

Seyed Mohammad Hosseini(showman) page[edit]

Hi There,

I am writing to you regarding last update we are trying to put on Seyed Mohammad Hosseini. I am part of seyed Mohammad Hoseini team who is leading opposition for IRAN. all I wrote on his page it was by his approval and all writing items been actually written by him. because of all of the political situation, this user is the only user should update this page.

Please let me know if you need any proof we can provide. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Iranmiga (talkcontribs) 19:43, 15 November 2018 (UTC)

Hi Eman235,

Please help us to add this edit. this is crucial for us to add this,

Many thanks — Preceding unsigned comment added by Iranmiga (talkcontribs) 01:58, 16 November 2018 (UTC)

Hi there,
Wikipedia isn't for campaigning. We expect articles to be written from a neutral point of view, without political campaigning or opinion. It's also important that users avoid a conflict of interest, so if you are part of Seyed Mohammad Hosseini's campaign team, then editing that article is discouraged.
Additionally, InfoWars is considered a very questionable source around here. Wikipedia is no place to be linking to their interviews.

Request for suggestions[edit]

Hi, Eman235! Thanks for your support :-) .

According to your advice, a page at https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/WikiDerivations has been created.
Facing certain issues, however. I didn't/couldn't (the reason is mentioned below) follow the mentioned route:

  1. Create an account and a user page on this wiki, so people can address questions to you.
  2. Create a page describing your plan: enter the project name in the box below and click the button.
  3. Link to your proposal from this page, below.
  4. Advertise your project! Good places to do so are on the Wikimedia Forum and the wikimedia-l mailing-list.


I first proposed a project, went on with it and created the project. The link is given.
I would've liked to create an account, but since it is a global account, I was afraid it might remove my Wikipedia User and Talk pages. So I haven't created an account and a talk page in wikimedia.
Since I didn't create an account, I can't follow the next steps after I created a project proposal page. Following the direction given:

  1. Link my proposal to the List.
  2. Advertise my project.


On these I therefore would like to learn. Seek help to learn.
I found that at your suggested page, if I posted a link to the Section, New Projects, it creates a link with a phrase Special:MyLanguage inserted between https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/ and /WikiDerivations, whereas my link is straightforward: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/WikiDerivations
How to seek help in https://meta.wikimedia.org ? I am presently reading the Help links.
Is the page https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help_Forum itself the HELP FORUM?

Posted my query on the Wikimedia Help Forum at Request_for_suggestions

I think you're fine on the account thing, since you already have a global account. I'm not too familiar with the project proposal process, though, so asking on the Meta help forum was a good idea. Eman235/talk 18:37, 10 December 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for responding. My Username in Wikimedia at the top of https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/WikiDerivations is in Red. Also, hovering the mouse cursor over my username says: Your user page (page does not exist)[.]I have posted this issue on the Help Forum too. So, assuming that you have many important tasks at hand, I should close this conversation.
Thanks once again for your support. Regards,

You do have an account on Meta, but not a user page—I would suggest creating meta:User:Bkpsusmitaa with the content {{softredirect|w:User:Bkpsusmitaa}} so you don't have to maintain a separate page. Eman235/talk 02:15, 11 December 2018 (UTC)
Thank You. I shall search how to use the tool softredirect and apply it subsequently. thanks once again for your continued support. Regards,
Bkpsusmitaa (talk) 02:25, 11 December 2018 (UTC)
Yes, have read the pages, https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Soft_redirect, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:Redirect, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:Redirect#Soft_redirects and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Soft_redirect.
Subsequently, used the two templates, {{softredirect|w:User:Bkpsusmitaa}} and {{softredirect|w:User_talk:Bkpsusmitaa}} and linked the respective global en.wikipedia pages with the corresponding wikimedia pages. Thank You for your continued support. I learnt a great deal from our interactions.

Your page cracks me up[edit]

Your infoboxes are hilarious and show a fun side to Wikipedia. Thanks for the laughs. Simsnet (talk) 03:02, 13 December 2018 (UTC)

WikiProject X Newsletter • Issue 13[edit]

WikiProject X icon.svg
Newsletter • December 2018

This month: A general update.

The current status of the project is as follows:

  • Progress of the project has been generally delayed since September due to development issues (more bitrot than expected, some of the code just being genuinely confusing, etc) and personal injury (I suffered a concussion in October and was out of commission for almost two months as a result).
  • I currently expect to be putting out a proper call for CollaborationKit pilots in January/February, with estimated deployment in February/March if things don't go horribly wrong (they will, though, don't worry). As a part of that, I will properly update the page and send out announcement and reach out to all projects already signed up as pilots for WikiProject X in general, at which point those (still) interested can volunteer specifically to test the CollaborationKit extension.
    • Wikipedia:WikiProject X/Pilots was originally created for the first WikiProject X prototype, and given this is where the project has since gone, it's only logical to continue to use it. While I haven't yet updated the page to properly reflect this:
    • If you want to add your project to this page now, feel free. Just bear in mind that more information what to actually expect will be added later/included in the announcement, because by then I will have a much better idea myself.
  • Until then, you can find me in my corner working on making the CollaborationKit code do what we want and not just what we told it, per the workboard.

Until next time,

Adding Images[edit]

Hey Eman235, I actually don't know how to properly add them. I'm sort of new here. And I'm used to adding images on FANDOM wikis. But here, I'm so lost. I don't know how to properly add new images.

https://commons.m.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:MegaMan55Cover.jpg (I don't know how to properly fix this image I just added.) — Preceding unsigned comment added by IdeaFan128 (talkcontribs) 06:03, 16 February 2019 (UTC)

Hi IdeaFan128. I suppose the FANDOM upload form you're talking about is something like what's displayed here? Wikipedia doesn't have anything like that as far as I know—just Special:Upload and the easier-to-use File Upload Wizard.
The file you linked to, commons:File:MegaMan55Cover.jpg, was deleted because you uploaded it to Wikimedia Commons. Commons policy only allows freely licensed media. You can upload a nonfree image (e.g., boxart) to Wikipedia, though, using the File Upload Wizard as I said before.
Generally, it's encouraged to use low-resolution versions of cover art. (Don't sweat this too much; if the image is too big, a bot will come along to shrink it.)
By the way, please sign your comments by writing four tildes (~~~~) after your message. Also, talk page messages usually go at the bottom of the page—I've moved this thread for you. Eman235/talk 21:55, 16 February 2019 (UTC)
The problem is that the site never opens. It just keeps redirecting back to the same page. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikipedia:File_Upload_Wizard&withJS=MediaWiki:FileUploadWizard.js — Preceding unsigned comment added by IdeaFan128 (talkcontribs) 09:04, 18 February 2019 (UTC)
Huh. Maybe it's a problem with the mobile site—have you tried the desktop version? Alternatively, you could try the simpler form Special:Upload. Eman235/talk 21:02, 18 February 2019 (UTC)
So, like this? https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:ThomasandFriendsTheAdventureBeginsCover.jpg#mw-jump-to-license — Preceding unsigned comment added by IdeaFan128 (talkcontribs) 02:08, 19 February 2019 (UTC)
IdeaFan128: That looks pretty much fine. I've added a license template for you. Eman235/talk 05:21, 19 February 2019 (UTC)
Just for clarification, is this the right way again? Ive been meaning to add this picture for some time: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:ArchieMegaManCover.jpg# for this article: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mega_Man_(Archie_Comics) — Preceding unsigned comment added by IdeaFan128 (talkcontribs) 16:07, 19 February 2019 (UTC)
Yep! Seems like you've got the hang of it now. Eman235/talk 20:12, 19 February 2019 (UTC)

March GOCE newsletter[edit]

Guild of Copy Editors March 2019 Newsletter
Writing Magnifying.PNG

Copyeditors progress.png

Hello and welcome to the March newsletter, a brief update of Guild activities since December 2018. All being well, we're planning to issue these quarterly in 2019, balancing the need to communicate widely with the avoidance of filling up talk pages. Don't forget you can unsubscribe at any time; see below.

January Drive: Thanks to everyone for the splendid work in January's Backlog Elimination Drive. We removed copyedit tags from all of the articles tagged in our original target months of June, July and August 2018, and by 24 January we ran out of articles. After adding September, we finished the month with 8 target articles remaining and 842 left in the backlog. GOCE copyeditors also completed 48 requests for copyedit in January. Of the 31 people who signed up for this drive, 24 copyedited at least one article. Final results, including barnstars awarded, are available here.

Blitz: Thanks to everyone who participated in the February Blitz. Of the 15 people who signed up, 13 copyedited at least one article. Participants claimed 32 copyedits, including 15 requests. Final results, including barnstars awarded, are available here.

Progress report: As of 23:39, 18 March 2019 (UTC), GOCE copyeditors have completed 108 requests since 1 January and the backlog stands at 851 articles.

March Drive: The month-long March drive is now underway; the target months are October and November 2018. Awards will be given to everyone who copyedits at least one article from the backlog. Sign up here!

Election reminder: It may only be March but don't forget our mid-year Election of Coordinators opens for nominations on 1 June. Coordinators normally serve a six-month term and are elected on an approval basis. Self-nominations are welcome. If you've thought of helping out at the Guild, or know of another editor who would make a good coordinator, please consider standing for election or nominating them here.

Thank you all again for your participation; we wouldn't be able to achieve what we have without you! Cheers from your GOCE coordinators Miniapolis, Baffle gab1978, Jonesey95, Reidgreg and Tdslk.
