The Wikipedia Adventure[edit]

Hello! In the story page of the The Wikipedia Adventure you are listed as a Participant. Do you know who the developers of the original Wikipedia Adventure are? Jakel181 (talk) 13:49, 2 December 2019 (UTC)

Jakel181, that takes me back. I believe the Wikipedia Adventure was the brainchild of Ocaasi, probably best to talk to him about it. WormTT(talk) 14:34, 2 December 2019 (UTC)
Thank you! Jakel181 (talk) 14:41, 2 December 2019 (UTC)

TRM ARCA - a knotty issue[edit]

I think you might have one too many nots in this comment. Thryduulf (talk) 13:56, 3 December 2019 (UTC)

Thryduulf, Thanks, sorted. WormTT(talk) 14:03, 3 December 2019 (UTC)

Closing it[edit]

Hi, WTT - who can close my appeal? Leaving it open only attracts ill-willed detractors who believe they have a free license to cast aspersions and poison the well even further. I see GW hatted one such comment. 4 arbs are in agreement so isn’t that the required number to close? Atsme Talk 📧 13:22, 4 December 2019 (UTC)

Atsme, sorry it's taken so long. Now done. WormTT(talk) 09:04, 7 December 2019 (UTC)
Thank you, WTT. Atsme Talk 📧 13:28, 7 December 2019 (UTC)

Interested editor[edit]

Hello! I've come to you to ask you a question about adminship. Can you take a brief look through my contribs and tell me what I need to improve on? I would like to open an RfA in 1 1/2 - 2 years, and a would like to know what I should be doing in the meantime to show competence. I would be using the tools mainly in counter-vandalism, NPP -related areas, and helping out at WP:PERM and WP:AIV, so I don't know if I will still need to become a prolific article creator and file uploader to become an admin. I would be to contribute there, but it's definitely not my jam and I would probably not be very active doing admin stuff over there. I'm asking you here because WP:ORCP is for editors running into he near future, which I don't plan on doing. I have read all the admin-related policies and essays. If you don't have enough time, that's totally cool, I understand. Thank you, Puddleglum 2.0 05:37, 6 December 2019 (UTC)

Puddleglum2.0, I have a nice answer for that. Check out my magic formula for being an admin. It's a slow process, but follow that and you will get there. WormTT(talk) 07:35, 6 December 2019 (UTC)
Thank you, that helps a lot! Just one quick short question though, if I am interested in doing counter vandal and NPP stuff with the tools, do I still need to be a prolific content contributor? Thank you again, Puddleglum 2.0 05:37, 7 December 2019 (UTC)
Puddleglum2.0, not prolific, no. But I would absolutely recommend a few good articles, or equivalent. Otherwise you will not be able to appreciate how much work goes into them and why people get upset about them. WormTT(talk) 08:15, 7 December 2019 (UTC)
