Orphaned non-free image File:Saizeriya logo.gif edit

 

Thanks for uploading File:Saizeriya logo.gif. 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) 18:33, 2 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sorry edit

Please excuse all my reverts. I see you have been adding lots of vital articles to the list but the bot has not yet caught up. I think I've self-reverted all of them now. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 09:52, 26 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

That's fine. I was closing discussions on subpages of WT:VA5 (huge backlog) and used WP:RATER to add the |vital= parameter to talk pages, but unfortunately the Rater tool does not allow me to supply a custom edit summary to explain what I was doing. feminist🇭🇰🇺🇦 (talk) 14:11, 26 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It's been a long time! edit

Feminist! When was the last time that I got to say hello to you?!! It's been quite some time since we've talked, and I hope you're doing well and that life is treating you with nothing but happiness. I just wanted to drop by and leave you a message to let you know that I was thinking about you. Have a great weekend. :-) ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 17:08, 27 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thank you for your kind words, Oshwah. I'm doing fine, thank you. feminist🇭🇰🇺🇦 (talk) 17:42, 27 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

9-1-1 edit

Hi, thank you for acting as closer at this discussion. I'm a bit perplexed, however, by the close. You counted the votes 5-3, but reading the discussion, this is not the case:

Support:
User:kashmiri (OP, implied support)
User:Necrothesp
User:Walrasiad (weak support)
User:SmokeyJoe

Oppose:
User:162 etc.
User:Awesome Aasim (supported status quo, or 911)
User:Pppery
User:CookieMonster755

WP:CONSENSUS is not simply vote-counting. That being said, I'm not convinced that this discussion led to a consensus to move. 162 etc. (talk) 17:20, 30 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks for bringing up the opinion of Awesome Aasim, I did misinterpret his comment supporting the move. I have updated my closure to reflect that.
Indeed, consensus is not vote-counting. That is why I also considered the strength of the arguments in my closure. As I stated in my closure, the "Oppose" arguments cited WP:NATURAL, but failed to make a case for why the use of an alternative name should be preferred over WP:PARENDIS for the article. Awesome Aasim in particular did not explain at all why he chose to Oppose having the disambiguation in the title. Therefore, I considered the oppose arguments to generally be weaker than the support arguments. feminist🇭🇰🇺🇦 (talk) 02:54, 31 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Improve Level 3 vital articles to Featured Article status edit

Hi, looks like an awesome challenge :) Signing up – I'm going to try my best to get Henry Ford up there. Thanks! TLA (talk) 23:21, 11 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Good luck! feminist🇭🇰🇺🇦 (talk) 02:21, 12 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks for offering another vital articles reward, only just noticed it! I think targeting level 3 but with the higher bar of featured status is a great idea. the wub "?!" 17:10, 19 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The Society VA5 talk page edit

Next time, when you make that many proposals at once, please make them subsections of one big talk page section. This is called a batch proposal. Having so many different sections on the page at once is a bit overwhelming, especially for users on mobile devices. For an example of a batch proposal, see this discussion. Thanks, QuicoleJR (talk) 17:25, 28 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'll restructure some of my proposals into batch proposals. Thanks. feminist🩸 (talk) 02:04, 29 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@QuicoleJR: done, hope this makes the page easier to navigate. feminist🩸 (talk) 02:19, 29 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
