recent troll accountEdit

Hi dear Archives, sorry that you had to deal with troll account leaving messages like this in your talk page. They should get reported and banned for vandalism edits and threats on the talk page. Btw wanted to suggest easier way to deal with vandalism reverts: You can select the first edit and last edit before the vandalisms, and click "compare selected revisions" (here for example, comparing your edit to the vandals' last edit). Then click "undo", and give your standard edit description (in this case, instead of "undo" being above your name, it would've been above vandals' name). That would revert all the vandal edits without the need to do it one by one. Hope this helps, cheers. ZaniGiovanni (talk) 04:32, 21 August 2021 (UTC)

Hi ZaniGiovanni, I agree- that user is clearly POV pushing. And thank you, that is a very big help. I feel embarrassed to say that I wasn't even ware of that useful time saver, it is much appreciated! And thank you for all your contributions to this encyclopedia! Cheers, Archives908 (talk) 14:19, 21 August 2021 (UTC)
Update- I just reported the vandal! Archives908 (talk) 14:43, 21 August 2021 (UTC)
Nice! Not gonna lie, wikipedia can be confusing sometimes. At first I used to think that you can only revert multiple edits by having the rollback rights. But there are some ways as I learned eventually like this one (hope my scuffed grammar wasn't an issue in understanding the method), and also you can try enabling Twinkle from the Gadgets section of Preferences. It all works with the same "compare selected revisions" tool in the Revision history.
If you'll need any help, please leave a message on my talk page. With best, ZaniGiovanni (talk) 17:03, 21 August 2021 (UTC)
You're amazing, thanks again for the tips ZaniGiovanni! FYI- the POV user is now blocked. Archives908 (talk) 18:13, 21 August 2021 (UTC)

Another list for deletionEdit

Hey, I saw you voted in the deletion nomination for the big tent political party list. Thought you might be interested in voting on another nomination as well as it was submitted by the same person for the same reason at almost the same time. Feel free to chime in, whichever way you want to vote: Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of syncretic political parties -AndreyKva (talk) 01:52, 4 January 2022 (UTC)

Yea, I saw that, thanks AndreyKva. I just commented- none of the deletion requests make any sense to me. Regards, Archives908 (talk) 02:19, 4 January 2022 (UTC)

HelloEdit

@Archives908 Sire, i have noticed that you placed the foreign relations file below the political infobox of Armenia. this recent edit is twitching my eye. because, i am trying to put the nations' relations file as first in "float-preview" feature. Readers would usually prefer to find the svg file first.. Utkarsh555 09:23, 5 March 2022 (UTC)

I get what you are trying to do. The only thing is, the placement of the map makes the article layout very awkward. In this case, we have a floating map right at the top, before even the lead. It's bizarre. I also don't think having a map as the float preview image will significantly increase readership of the article. I'm not opposed to your changes, but, you must realize that it creates an awkward layout of the article. So, we must figure out, what is the lesser of two evils? Not having the map as the float preview -or- creating an awkward layout? Archives908 (talk) 15:56, 5 March 2022 (UTC)
@Archives908 Ok. If possible by you, then can you make the article such that the "politics" template stays above the relations file, but the file appears first in float feature, because how much i am trying, the picture from the politics template is appearing first, rather the file. so, if you can fix that thing, i would be immensely grateful! Utkarsh555 15:13, 7 March 2022 (UTC)
Utkarsh555, I don't know how to do that, but I will do some research to see if I can figure it out. Please do the same, because I think showing your map as the preview image will be a good improvement. We just need to figure out how to achieve that without changing the current layout. Thanks! Archives908 (talk) 16:55, 7 March 2022 (UTC)
@Archives908 Thank you very much! i am happy to cooperate with you, Sire! Utkarsh555 16:57, 7 March 2022 (UTC)
Utkarsh555 thank you :) I hope we can figure it out! Archives908 (talk) 17:02, 7 March 2022 (UTC)
@Archives908 Hello! sire, while working of the foreign relations issue, i worked out and found that if we could edit the "Template:Politics of Armenia" instead i was thinking, why not do some twitching with the code of the template itself? I am not scared, but worried: that what if someone finds it disruptive? and block me? so, i guess, we should first do that in our respective sandboxes, and then reach a cemented conclusion. Utkarsh555 15:39, 8 March 2022 (UTC)
Hi Utkarsh555. I will leave that project to you since I have zero experience with altering code. If you practice in your sandbox, you will not be blocked. Good Luck and let me know if you discover anything. Although, at this point, I think it would be easier to just either leave the image where it is or move it above the template. Archives908 (talk) 16:08, 8 March 2022 (UTC)
@Archives908 as you wish, I am glad that you took a point of min in keeping the image above template. If you have no problem, then surely, I am glad to do it! Thanks for the conversation, sire!
հաջողություն ձեր հետագա խմբագրումների համար: հարգանքներով, նոսրացնում է Հնդկաստանը Դելիից😁😁 Utkarsh555 09:59, 9 March 2022 (UTC)
Utkarsh555, the only problem with that is creating the awkward layout. It would still be better if we could find an alternative solution. If there is no other solution, then I am not opposed to your edit. I will try and help when I have some time. 😁 Thank you, friend! Archives908 (talk) 14:20, 9 March 2022 (UTC)
@Archives908 one way that is coming in my mind is to edit the template. I can find no other solution as of now. Meanwhile, I whil continue to edit the template sample in my sandbox. I would be glad, if you too could come up with an alternative, and then sort it out, settle it down. Ok, I will do this by 20th March of some work, then finally messaging you the decison.
Utkarsh555 14:35, 10 March 2022 (UTC)
Sounds great! Thank you. Archives908 (talk) 16:14, 10 March 2022 (UTC)
@Archives908 Sire, so now, after [even fully draining out myself from Holi festivel], i again took the issue of the template and foreign relations. befor holiday, i tried/experimented several times, but the output is coming out to be the same. I tried changing the format somewhere, but it looks like the svg file of Armenian coat of arms is coving the initial preview. since both the files are svg in the article, the first svg file is blocking the second. I am now suggesting for that "weirdo" code layout which you mentioned at earlier. Utkarsh555 08:14, 21 March 2022 (UTC)
Greetings, friend. In all honesty, the article, float image, and layout is fine as it is. We both tried to find a solution, but I do not have the time to continue with this. There is nothing wrong with maintaining the Armenian coat of arms as the default float image. Placing the map above the template is bizarre as it is literally floating right on top beside no other text, it looks sloppy. I think keeping the map in the lead is far better and visually more acceptable. Take care, Archives908 (talk) 13:55, 21 March 2022 (UTC)
@Archives908 ok sire, thanks, i got it. Utkarsh555 03:14, 23 March 2022 (UTC)

Euro-Atlantic partnership council is my school assignmentEdit

Hi there, I don’t know who you are, but I’ve noticed you have deleted all of my works on Euro- Atlantic Partnership Council wiki page, I know you may not agree with what I’ve edited, but edited and publish this wiki page is my school assignment, so could you please leave it for me and my classmate to edit without doing anything. Thank you so much. 2604:3D08:6E7E:9A00:B50B:2AD8:F63E:B77C (talk) 04:00, 17 March 2022 (UTC)

Your edits are not constructive, nor are they being done properly. You keep adding sources using copy and paste techniques, you fail to right edit descriptions, and you have ignored my warnings about removing the article's lead several times. Just because you have a "school assignment" does not justify your disruptive edits. If you continue, I will be forced to report your account/and this ip address to the Admins. Archives908 (talk) 15:29, 17 March 2022 (UTC)
I'm not sure who the anon is, but I assume it's someone connected with MingyueH. They've contacted me by email, since apparently they forgotten the parts of the training that warn against unsourced additions and edit warring. Please ping me if you run into problems with students - I tend to have a better chance of reaching people who end up with this misconception about the assignment.
Sorry about this mess. Ian (Wiki Ed) (talk) 17:00, 17 March 2022 (UTC)
Hi Ian (Wiki Ed), thanks for your message. Whoever this ip is, I also suspect they are connected with MingyueH and now using an account and an ip to push their edits. They are causing quite the disturbance on Euro-Atlantic Partnership Council‎, despite several warnings. Another editor had to revert an edit due to copyright violations. On top of that, there are no edit summaries, no sources, and they keep removing the lead- while ignoring all warnings. Either they start to understand the general Wikipedia ethos and cease with the disruptive edits, or we may have to report them if they continue to ignore warnings. Thanks for reaching out! Regards, Archives908 (talk) 17:35, 17 March 2022 (UTC)
I saw the copyvio issue that Diannaa had to deal with. Since they emailed me, I'm hopeful things will be sorted out, but if not I have no problem using blocks, partial blocks, or semiprotects to handle disruptive editing. Ian (Wiki Ed) (talk) 18:01, 17 March 2022 (UTC)

Reply for last messageEdit

I’m sorry for remove the lead, because I’m not familiar with how to edit a wiki page, and because me and my group members are editing the wiki page together, so we are editing it little by little, when you see the page, we were taking a break or switching a person to keep editing, our assignment will due next Wednesday, hope you could give us a chance to finish all. 2605:8D80:446:93F2:C954:2E79:C427:205 (talk) 17:40, 17 March 2022 (UTC)

If your edits are constructive, well sourced, and do not violate copyright rules then I see no problem. However, the article will have to be restored to the current stable version if you continue to ignore warnings/add copyright content. I recommend you ensure you are well versed with Wikipedia policies before you continue your edits to the page. Archives908 (talk) 17:46, 17 March 2022 (UTC)
Hello, i saw you have added a logo to the sidebox on Euro-Atlantic Partnership Council page, but we couldn't find that image on Wikicommons, i'm not sure if that it okay to be there. MingyueH (talk) 05:40, 21 March 2022 (UTC)
MingyueH, I have uploaded it using the proper channels. I have been editing on Wikipedia for several years and am fairly knowledgeable with best practices. I recommend you continue to acquaint yourself with the Wikipedia ethos and stop using multiple accounts/IP's to make changes. Archives908 (talk) 13:41, 21 March 2022 (UTC)

Armenia listEdit

Hi, don't you think its more informative to have a table that lists the countries chronologically instead of just listing them? --Semsûrî (talk) 13:08, 3 May 2022 (UTC)

  • Hello Semsûrî! I see you have been generating such lists for foreign relations related articles and your contributions are improvements to those articles as many of them did not have a lot of information to begin with (especially for smaller countries) and/or were very poorly organized, often a chaotic mess. However, Foreign relations of Armenia has a lot more sourced information, and is generally well organized, as compared to other such articles. I've also noticed that foreign relations articles' differ greatly (in terms of quality and layout) among one another and there is no set standard to judge each one too. I have been working on Foreign relations of Armenia for several years (since 2018 and still on-going, granted at a slow pace) trying to improve the scope of it. To blanket remove information regarding embassies/diplomatic missions, relations, and other pertinent notes is worrisome. To replace it with a chronological list (at least in this case) may not be necessary, in my opinion. Kind regards, Archives908 (talk) 13:39, 3 May 2022 (UTC)
Perhaps removing info from the tables was wrong, but I considered that info to be redundant now with the chronological list as they only contained info on the date of establishing diplomatic relations (the info on embassies must have been unsourced). I still believe the table I added is more informative than the current list under the "Countries with diplomatic relations"-section. Nonetheless, I won't continue with my push. Also, the first and third map on the article depict the same thing and one should be removed. --Semsûrî (talk) 14:24, 3 May 2022 (UTC)
Thank you for your understanding and your equally hard work towards improving such articles! Yes, indeed you are right in regards to the image duplication. User Utkarsh555 has been generating maps and adding them to almost every single "Foreign relations" article. From what I understand, the user is trying to figure ways to "float-preview" the image, without adjusting current layouts/moving any lead templates of the articles'. Apparently, he is sandbox testing ideas. I will allow the user to continue his trials, but if no progress is made, I'll remove the duplicate map in due course. Cheers, Archives908 (talk) 19:29, 3 May 2022 (UTC)

Armenian Revolutionary FederationEdit

Hi. I just wanted to note that the point of my edit that created a redlink on Armenian Revolutionary Federation was to help WP:BUILD by providing a redlink that should potentially have a page or redirect created for it. {{Interlanguage link}} will automatically hide the external link (unless told not) if or once the redlink page is created. Perhaps this isn't a useful link for the English Wikipedia and I don't intend to edit war over it, though I may potentially inadvertently make a similar edit in the future if this page is in the WP:AWB list again. Happy editing, Ost (talk) 22:46, 20 September 2022 (UTC)

I understand and thank you for the explanation. I only reverted because I felt having the redlink in the infobox for such a prominent political party served less useful then having an inter-language link. Should the corresponding article ever be created in English Wikipedia, I'd be happy to adjust the link accordingly. Cheers! Archives908 (talk) 22:55, 20 September 2022 (UTC)
