Speedy deletion nomination of Category:Articles with Norwegian-language external linksEdit


A tag has been placed on Category:Articles with Norwegian-language external links 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!

Please look the articleEdit

Hi, my name is Carina, how are you?

I already fixed the article and removed the words that were not neutral. Please review it and accept it since I lasted many hours doing it. Consider my request. I also take into account any advice from you and whether I should remove or put words. This is the article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:Emil_Cerda

I see you have received help elsewhere. I'm not getting involved. PrimeHunter (talk) 17:34, 21 February 2020 (UTC)
@PrimeHunter: I'm not getting help, sir PrimeHunter. Please, I ask you for this article. Check it out and post it. Thank you Eltiguere300 (talk) 13:31, 23 February 2020 (UTC)Eltiguere300

Template:APIQuery categorymembersEdit

Thanks for the changes to this page and its document page. I've made some related changes to its related templates. Just curious, do you have a specific use in mind for this outside the English Wikipedia? davidwr/(talk)/(contribs) 19:58, 21 February 2020 (UTC)

@Davidwr: No, I just know that other wikis often copy our templates and modules, and we frequently design them to be portable. PrimeHunter (talk) 23:00, 21 February 2020 (UTC)

Selecting mapsEdit

Consider the article Doha International Airport. I would like to know what code is being used inorder to select the map one after the other in the Infobox. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Adithyak1997 (talkcontribs)

@Adithyak1997: The article uses the pushpin parameters at Template:Infobox airport#Location/pushpin map. The infobox uses {{Location map}} which uses the feature documented at User:Jackmcbarn/switcher. It requires the default gadget "Show radio buttons to switch between views of certain content, such as some maps" at Special:Preferences#mw-prefsection-gadgets. The gadget code is in MediaWiki:Gadget-switcher.js. The code to add the gadget is the switcher line in MediaWiki:Gadgets-definition. The primitive {{Switcher}} also uses the feature but is not used by the infobox. PrimeHunter (talk) 12:01, 22 February 2020 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Stockholm University logo.jpgEdit


Thanks for uploading File:Stockholm University logo.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in section F5 of the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. --B-bot (talk) 18:46, 28 February 2020 (UTC)

Two-factor authenticationEdit

Hi I need help of the abovementioned. I have 2FA at the moment, but would like to change the mobile number. what should I do and how to do it? Thanks in advance. here ping PrimeHunter CASSIOPEIA(talk) 4:04 pm, Yesterday (UTC+11)


Hi PrimeHunter, I copied the message from Village technical page to here so you may know the background. I have disable the 2FA and would like to enable it again for my new mobile number. I dont remember how I did it the first time and I am not technical. So I need some help here.

I would like to have the QR code scanning on my mobile as well as the 10 scratch codes. Questions 1. Do I have to ask for permission again? (this is my previous request) 2. Do I have to enable both (TOTP (one-time token) and Web Authentication (WebAuthn) of Manage Two-factor authentication? 4. How to I provide my mobile number to the system? 5. 4. "Go back to the 2FA enrollment page. Write down the scratch codes from "Step 3" and keep them in a secure location." Where is the 2F Enrollment page? And where (which page) I would go and enroll it again?

Thank you in advance. CASSIOPEIA(talk) 22:50, 10 March 2020 (UTC)

@CASSIOPEIA: I don't have 2FA and have never worked with it. You still have the permission [1] so don't request it again. Maybe the 2FA enrollment page refers to Special:Manage Two-factor authentication. PrimeHunter (talk) 23:37, 10 March 2020 (UTC)
Hi Prime Hunter. Thank you for your speedy respond. Cheers CASSIOPEIA(talk) 00:06, 11 March 2020 (UTC)

Article gradeEdit

Hello, you kindly helped me with a question I had yesterday re; the grade of an article I had accepted Luke Swann this week. I am keen to improve the article and get it moved up a grade or two, with that in mind is there a set time scale to how long you have to do this? I am just conscious with the article being at risk of being speedily deleted? Pegs50 (talk) 07:55, 19 April 2020 (UTC)

@Pegs50: There is no time scale. Many articles remain stubs. It was accepted at Articles for creation so I don't think it would be speedily deleted. Other deletion processes give seven days to improve an article after a nomination for deletion. PrimeHunter (talk) 12:32, 19 April 2020 (UTC)

Oh I see, that's very helpful thank you. Appreciate your support. Pegs50 (talk) 14:28, 19 April 2020 (UTC)

Template:COVID-19 testing by country subdivisionEdit

I have reverted your edits adding rowspan to the "Country" column because it broke alphabetic sorting in the "Subdivision" column. (It does not really make much sense anyway—as soon as you sort the table by any column, the combined cells in the "Country" column are split.) — UnladenSwallow (talk) 03:27, 21 April 2020 (UTC)

Nomination of List of families of Lahore for deletionEdit


A discussion is taking place as to whether the article List of families of Lahore is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. PepperBeast (talk) 13:09, 24 April 2020 (UTC)

Your Teahouse responseEdit

You said here that external links change from blue to purple and internal links from blue to dark blue. For whatever reason, links change to purple for me in both cases.— Vchimpanzee • talk • contributions • 20:04, 28 April 2020 (UTC)

@Vchimpanzee: Help:Link color says dark blue in the default Vector skin. That's what I see. PrimeHunter (talk) 21:43, 28 April 2020 (UTC)
So it's because I use Monobook, then.— Vchimpanzee • talk • contributions • 21:45, 28 April 2020 (UTC)

Robert Baden-Powell, 1st Baron Baden-PowellEdit

Please could you look at the above page. There is an IP adding a 'story' whom I have reverted but cannot warn as I get a message "User talk page modification: Failed to save edit: Invalid CSRF token". I think the page may need protection,SovalValtos (talk) 19:02, 11 June 2020 (UTC)

It's an issue with all the wikis. Please check Phab for more details. Adithyak1997 (talk) 19:04, 11 June 2020 (UTC)


Thanks! I followed your quick fix as you suggested here & for that I’m grateful. I’m beginning to relax a little now. Furthermore would you be so kind as to assist or direct me to a place where I might find a fix to the problem of images in mobile editing showing a “Tap to display image” rather than just auto opening? Although I should also add that the images auto open when I disable the Javascript in the safari configuration menu. Could you assist me in this regard or do I just be patient & hopefully everything returns to normal? It has been this way for a month + now. Thank you for your time. Celestina007 (talk) 22:45, 27 June 2020 (UTC)

@Celestina007: I see there is a new possible but complicated answer at Wikipedia:Help desk/Archives/2020 June 7#"Tap to display image" why? although archives are not supposed to be edited with new posts. I don't have the issue in Safari on my iPhone and don't know more. "Intersection Observer" is enabled for me. I don't want to try changing it. I have to first select Advanced at the bottom of Safari settings to reach Experimental Features. PrimeHunter (talk) 08:05, 28 June 2020 (UTC)

My appealEdit


Are you still an Administrator? If so, I need to ask something.

My account has been blocked from editing. I need to know what the status of my appeal is and if I did anything wrong without realizing it, I am sorry. How long does it usually take for an appeal to get reviewed? I was using my own account, but it told me that I was blocked because of an IP address. Any help and answers are appreciated. Please go to my talk page under "My Appeal" to leave an answer. Thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Frschoonover (talkcontribs)
