Nomination for deletion of Template:Info needed

Template:Info needed has been nominated for deletion. You are invited to comment on the discussion at the template's entry on the Templates for discussion page. Pkbwcgs (talk) 18:56, 1 January 2020 (UTC)[reply]

January 2020

Information icon Hello. Regarding the recent revert you made to Peter Wright (darts player): you may already know about them, but you might find Wikipedia:Template messages/User talk namespace useful. After a revert, these can be placed on the user's talk page to let them know you considered their edit inappropriate, and also direct new users towards the sandbox. They can also be used to give a stern warning to a vandal when they've been previously warned. Thank you. Pkbwcgs (talk) 21:48, 2 January 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Yeah, Im well aware of them, I just can't be bothered and don't want to find random talk pages on my watchlist that I forget to unwatch.  Nixinova  T  C   22:36, 2 January 2020 (UTC)[reply]
If you use Twinkle to revert vandalism, you can change your preferences at Wikipedia:Twinkle/Preferences to make sure that it doesn't add the pages you revert vandalism on your watchlist. Pkbwcgs (talk) 09:45, 3 January 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks!  Nixinova  T  C   20:36, 3 January 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Recent speedy deletion tagging

You recently tagged a number of redirects to various decade pages with the reason "not the same thing". That may be true, but that is not one of the speedy deletion criteria. I have declined the speedy deletion requests. The criteria are intentionally narrow and strict, and a page that does not pretty clearly adhere to one (or more) of them should not be tagged for speedy deletion. You can take any redirect you think is not useful to WP:RFD. Twinkle can help form nominations if you so choose. DES (talk)DESiegel Contribs 21:38, 3 January 2020 (UTC)[reply]

A tag has been placed on Category:Hacking in the 2020s requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section C1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the category has been empty for seven days or more and is not a disambiguation category, a category redirect, a featured topics category, under discussion at Categories for discussion, or a project category that by its nature may become empty on occasion.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Liz Read! Talk! 19:23, 1 January 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Hello, Nixinova,
Do not remove deletion tags from pages you have created. The notice above is a courtesy message. Empty categories are deleted 7 days after they are originally tagged unless they fall within a small list of exceptions. Wikipedia guidelines do not allow for the creation categories in anticipation that they might be needed some time in the future. If the category no longer is empty during the 7 days after it is originally tagged, the tag is removed. If the category is deleted and, in the future, is needed, feel free to recreate it. Thank you. Liz Read! Talk! 16:22, 4 January 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Mike Moore references

You've twice removed all the citations I've added to the "honours" section. Can you replace. Thanks. MurielMary (talk) 03:24, 2 February 2020 (UTC)[reply]

That's exactly what I'm doing, we were both editing the article at the same time so our edits overwrote each other, see WP:Edit conflict.  Nixinova  T  C   03:25, 2 February 2020 (UTC)[reply]

On 3 February 2020, In the news was updated with an item that involved the article Mike Moore (New Zealand politician), which you nominated and updated. If you know of another recently created or updated article suitable for inclusion in ITN, please suggest it on the candidates page.  — Amakuru (talk) 10:23, 3 February 2020 (UTC)[reply]

American politics discretionary sanctions notice

This is a standard message to notify contributors about an administrative ruling in effect. It does not imply that there are any issues with your contributions to date.

You have shown interest in post-1932 politics of the United States and closely related people. Due to past disruption in this topic area, a more stringent set of rules called discretionary sanctions is in effect. Any administrator may impose sanctions on editors who do not strictly follow Wikipedia's policies, or the page-specific restrictions, when making edits related to the topic.

For additional information, please see the guidance on discretionary sanctions and the Arbitration Committee's decision here. If you have any questions, or any doubts regarding what edits are appropriate, you are welcome to discuss them with me or any other editor.

Iowa Caucus Map

Hi @Nixinova: I wanted to ask you how can I update colors on Iowa Democratic Caucus Map or other maps like this, [1]. I don’t really know how to do that, I was wondering if, you could teach me of how to do it. Thank you - Centrist1 (talk) 06:07, 5 February 2020 (UTC)[reply]

@Centrist1: What I did is open the SVG in a browser (here), open the browser dev tools, use the pointer in the top-right of the dev tools in Chrome to select a county, then change the fill value inside the element.style { section in the dev tools to a different colour. After I'm done I scroll up, right click the element that starts with <svgxmlns:dc... and copy&paste that into notepad, saving the file as a .svg. Hope this helps.  Nixinova  T  C   07:23, 6 February 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Thanks. I will try. - Centrist1 (talk) 07:25, 6 February 2020 (UTC)[reply]

I know you from the Minecraft Wiki (I'm Amatulic there), you're an admin there, I'm an admin here, and I know you can be trusted with tools, so I have granted you rollbacker and autoreviewer rights here.

Minecraft Server

Hi! I got your message about the edit I made on the Minecraft Server page I’ve added three citations which redirect to these links: The Minecraft Bedrock server download, List of Bedrock edition server software and a question on the SpigotMC page. Are those sources valid? — Preceding unsigned comment added by MasterMinedMyWayOuttaHere (talkcontribs) 09:06, 13 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Hi @MasterMinedMyWayOuttaHere:, Wikipedia prefers secondary sources (news articles, etc) over primary sources (the website of the subject, etc; for example Minecraft.net or Spigot.org), and user wikis such as the Minecraft Wiki shouldn't be used either. Your sources aren't invalid, per se, but could you find any articles that back up your information?  Nixinova  T  C   19:52, 13 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Hey! I tried to shorten it up a bit, does this warrant sufficient cleanup or should I do more work? Thank you :) JBMagination (talk) 14:25, 23 June 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Main lobby image

Hello Nixinova. I am quite new to Wikipedia and was wondering why you deleted my image on the Hypixel Wikipedia page. Does taking a screenshot of a build that I didn't make count as my own work or not? I thought taking pictures counted as my own work on Wikipedia. If it isn't allowed on Wikipedia, please go into detail. I'd like to learn more about this website and what is and what isn't allowed.-Npthura (talk) 01:10, 8 August 2020 (UTC)Npthura[reply]

@Npthura: "Own work" only applies if the image is 100% made by you. "Taking pictures" does mean it's your own work, but this isn't a picture. In this case the copyright is owned by Mojang. See WP:COPYRIGHT for related info.  Nixinova T  C   01:57, 8 August 2020 (UTC)[reply]

2b2t GA

Hey Nixinova! The 2b2t article is in much better shape now than it was a year ago. I've been thinking about maybe nominating it for GA. I was wondering if you had any thoughts on this idea or advice for me? —  Melofors  TC  06:30, 30 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]

I haven't done anything related to GA, but the article does look quite good now and I wish you luck on the nomination.  Nixinova T  C   19:00, 30 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]

2020 New Zealand general election

What did you mean here that my edit was "marginal"? If it was marginal, then surely it was not revert worthy? Either way, the & looks awkward and there is no need for it when we can use the more aestetichally fitting br. Thank you for your other edits. Davide King (talk) 03:21, 18 October 2020 (UTC)[reply]

I had to quickly spit out an edit summary while trying to fix the mess, sorry if it sounded harsh. What I meant was that change isn't worth reverting all the other edits to the page.  Nixinova T  C   03:22, 18 October 2020 (UTC)[reply]
I think there was a misunderstanding because I was actually trying to revert the same edit you reverted (the longer messy lead), but since you already reverted it and we edited at the same time, it only changed my other inofobox edit (I did not get an edit conflict warning), making it looking like I was reverting that when I was actually trying to revert the mess to the lead, for which I thank you again. :) Davide King (talk) 03:27, 18 October 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Yeah I don't quite know what happened with the history, too many edits lol.  Nixinova T  C   03:31, 18 October 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Hi, my name is Aubernas. Concerning the 2020 NZ Election, I feel my lead is the best choice. I spent a very long time writing it, and trimming it is harmful because the lead is what most people read. I think my lead is the ideal length, so please don't cut it or move it anymore. Aubernas (talk) 03:26, 18 October 2020 (UTC)[reply]

The lead should only contain information critical for understanding the events that took place. Surprise electorate upsets and stuff like that aren't critical facts, and people looking at this page from other countries don't need to know that stuff to understand the election, so it's just too much information to give and makes the reader have to sift through the intro to find the critical information. The lead should be the basic information necessary for understanding the subject matter. And I know you took a while to write it, but I haven't deleted it, it's just moved to be in the Results section.  Nixinova T  C   03:28, 18 October 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Hi, I just really think the lead was good how it was. I know several articles about elections that are as long or longer, and they are the best articles because they give the best snapshot of information. So can we please agree to keep it my way? Please mate?Aubernas (talk) 03:31, 18 October 2020 (UTC)[reply]

I've put your lead here for safekeeping. Take a read through MOS:INTRO to see what I'm saying: The lead section should briefly summarize the most important points covered in an article in such a way that it can stand on its own as a concise version of the article. (emphasis mine). Those points you've re-added aren't the "most important points" relating to the election, and are better suited to the Results section where people who are interested in those aspects can read through the article to find them. The lead should cover only the main important points: party vote results, majorities, coalitions, dates, etc. Other stuff like electorate results, demographics of the parliament (which should also probably be on 53rd New Zealand Parliament instead) aren't critical information, so they shouldn't be front and centre in the lead.  Nixinova T  C   03:35, 18 October 2020 (UTC)[reply]
In particular, The results of the "Covid election" ... member for Nelson since 1990 and In a surprise victory ... "consigning him to political history" isn't critical lead-worthy information, as that is just pure results of electorates that aren't critical for understanding the election; Crushed in the last election ... did in previous terms of Parliament is Maori Party campaign info, also not fitted to the lead; the most LGBT+ members of any national parliament is trivia, which should also be taken out of the lead  Nixinova T  C   03:41, 18 October 2020 (UTC)[reply]
