{{subst:Thank you so much for your creation of the Kate De Remero page. She is definitely referred to by this name so that was a very good change. You are an incredible Wikapedian and I appreciate the work you put into the new page. However, I am requesting that you as a great and educated Wikapedian delete this redirect page for the following reasons: the last name of the individual is de Remero, and Donnelly is vastly different from that, which causes confusion; since, as you noted, she uses the last name De Remero, it makes her description much more complicated and difficult to understand; and also the presence of the redirect article makes it more difficult to find the actual Kate de Remero that people will look for.|Kate Donnelly}} 108.51.195.71 (talk) 23:45, 29 August 2019 (UTC)

Hi there, and thanks for your message. Are you another person called Kate Donnelly? I ask because your focus seems to be on her old name, and when I searched for Kate Donnelly on Google I noticed that it is showing incorrect information and the wrong photo in the infobox. Johndavies837 (talk) 00:21, 30 August 2019 (UTC)

Thank you for your message back! Again I appreciate all of your contributions to Wikapedia.

No, I am not another person named Kate Donnelly.

I am just someone looking to become a possible member of Wikapedia. I preach that I am just trying to do what is best for Wikapedia. Since there are many other Kate Donnelly's and Kate de Remero does not go by Kate Donnelly anymore, I think the presence of the redirect page makes for extra confusion. In addition, you accurately noted that she was born as Katherine Donnelly. That is a great addition to have on the page! But the addition of the Kate Donnelly redirect page makes for more perplexion and confusion.

I commend you for the work you have done on Wikapedia and also on the Kate De Remero page. I have been praying that I can make a positive impact on Wikapedia, and I think the elimination of the redirect page is a way I can do that. For the betterment of Wikapedia, I ask that you delete the Kate Donnelly redirect page. From doing adequate research, I have learned that deleting a redirect page is extremely simple due to its small bandwith. If it makes for extra confusion, I think deletion of the redirect page will have a positive impact.

Thank you so much and I appreciate your time! 108.51.195.71 (talk) 11:04, 30 August 2019 (UTC)

2019 El Paso shootingEdit

Are you capturing, editing and then pasting/replacing the entire article? Please don't do that, as exactly what just occurred will frequently be the outcome when other editors are also editing the same article. See WP:EDITCONFLICT to see how we normally protect against that when you use the Wikipedia editor. General Ization Talk 21:32, 5 August 2019 (UTC)

I had multiple tabs open. I think I was accidentally editing an old revision and clicked save, which is why later edits were overwritten. When I saw what happened I copied the last revision by Octoberwoodland and restored it, minus the change I intended to make. Johndavies837 (talk) 21:39, 5 August 2019 (UTC)
I thoroughly understand; I've done the same. Just wanted to make sure you weren't using Copy to Notepad/scrabble scrabble scrabble/Copy All/Paste to edit articles, as I've seen editors do that as well with the same consequences. Thanks. General Ization Talk 01:08, 6 August 2019 (UTC)

FYIEdit

With this edit [1] you restored vandalism. Appears the IP is acting in good faith. Home Lander (talk) 00:46, 14 October 2019 (UTC)

You're right. I hadn't noticed but I reverted the wrong edit. Thanks for letting me know. I had also posted a vandalism note on the IP user's talk page, which I have now removed. Johndavies837 (talk) 00:51, 14 October 2019 (UTC)

UnsignedEdit

What you said about my 'unconstructive changes' was unfair. I take you would like to repent and revert the changes. Otherwise I will block you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dave32123432 (talkcontribs)

What you did was vandalism, simple. Johndavies837 (talk) 14:05, 15 October 2019 (UTC)

That is not true. It was based of fact. David Warner is my best mate and works with me at school. He is very upset that the information is unfair. In my kindness I changed it for him, simple.

You (or someone using your IP address) vandalized Thailand national handball team by calling someone "gay" and describing a player as "mentally handicapped". Also, engaging in personal attacks does not make you look any better. Johndavies837 (talk) 15:57, 5 November 2019 (UTC)

Google Code-In 2019 is coming - please mentor some documentation tasks!Edit

Hello,

Google Code-In, Google-organized contest in which the Wikimedia Foundation participates, starts in a few weeks. This contest is about taking high school students into the world of opensource. I'm sending you this message because you recently edited a documentation page at the English Wikipedia.

I would like to ask you to take part in Google Code-In as a mentor. That would mean to prepare at least one task (it can be documentation related, or something else - the other categories are Code, Design, Quality Assurance and Outreach) for the participants, and help the student to complete it. Please sign up at the contest page and send us your Google account address to google-code-in-admins@lists.wikimedia.org, so we can invite you in!

From my own experience, Google Code-In can be fun, you can make several new friends, attract new people to your wiki and make them part of your community.

If you have any questions, please let us know at google-code-in-admins@lists.wikimedia.org.

Thank you!
