NoMad PiazzaEdit

Hi FormalDude! It peaked my curiosity why you removed the "notability" and "sources needed" tags on the article NoMad Piazza. Did you check the sources? The Chicago Tribune source was an exact duplicate of the NYT article (and said so at the top of the CT cite), and there is precisely half-a-sentence in the article about NoMad Piazza. The NYC DOT citation doesn't mention NoMad Piazza at all. The Experience NoMad citation is a primary source by NoMad itself. And the Bloomberg citation does not mention NoMad at all.

When maintenance tags are removed it should be done AFTER the problems are resolved, and I'm not seeing that that happened. I think the tags should be added back, which I will do, but I wanted to give you a heads up first so you know where I'm coming from. Netherzone (talk) 21:05, 8 September 2022 (UTC)

I just wanted to avoid excessive tagging, but you're right that it should have those two tags. Thanks for reaching out! ––FormalDude (talk) 08:45, 16 September 2022 (UTC)

Question from KonysKidMilitia (04:17, 16 September 2022)Edit

Hey, I was sending my friend a message and I edited a page, but thought it was just on my phone (like it wouldn't finalize on wikipedia) and when I saw it edited it, I removed it. My concern is I saw it posts your IP address as well if you don't have an account and I wanted to know if I could get that removed. It was just a mistake of actually editing the page that I rectified immediately. --KonysKidMilitia (talk) 04:18, 16 September 2022 (UTC)

Hi KonysKidMilitia, please email your request to oversight-en-wp@wikipedia.org or use this form and it will be taken care of as soon as possible. ––FormalDude (talk) 04:21, 16 September 2022 (UTC)

AdoptionEdit

Hi. I am currently looking for an Adopter. I saw on the Adopt-a-user page that you are currently accepting adoptees. I am part of Wikipedia since April but I still feel that I need to have a mentor who can guide me incase of any confusion. Would you be willing to help me? Thank you Fifthapril (talk) 04:55, 23 September 2022 (UTC)

Hi Fifthapril, thanks for reaching out. Unfortunately I'm not accepting adoptions from users with fewer than 1,000 edits right now. You may wish to try Newcomer mentorship instead. ––FormalDude (talk) 04:13, 24 September 2022 (UTC)

Question from MrIMFletch (20:53, 23 September 2022)Edit

Hi - I had a question for your. Is there a way to copy or add a Wiki page currently in Italian so that it's viewable on the English Wiki? I'm not looking to just translate it, I'd like it to appear as a page in the US Wiki, not just Italy. Is that possible and if so, how? Thanks! --MrIMFletch (talk) 20:53, 23 September 2022 (UTC)

Hi MrIMFletch, welcome to Wikipedia! You shouldn't copy a non-English page to English Wikipedia article space, you would have to translate it. However, if you want to link to a Wikipedia page in another language on English Wikipedia, you can do so by using an interwiki link Justiyaya 03:30, 24 September 2022 (UTC)

Friendly Reminder to review Kahoot! requested editsEdit

Hi FormalDude. I wanted to see if you had a minute to review [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Alejandro_Viquez_Rodr%C3%ADguez/requestchanges the last round of changes] I requested to the [[Kahoot!]] page at [[Talk:Kahoot!#A_few_more]]. This is for updating the infobox, some language changes to fix the current page's misrepresentation that Kahoot! is only used in academic environments, and removing the advert tag now that a lot of promotion has been removed. Let me know if it's on your radar at all or if I should try someone else. Alejandro Viquez Rodríguez (talk) 08:20, 27 September 2022 (UTC)

@Alejandro Viquez Rodríguez: It is on my radar but you should still add a new {{edit request}} tag so that it appears in the queue. ––FormalDude (talk) 07:26, 28 September 2022 (UTC)
