@Coffeeandcrumbs: - thanks. Glad to see that it landed! Stormy clouds (talk) 09:30, 18 July 2018 (UTC)
  • So we have successfully made the base of this talk page. We now must edit Wikipedia, and allow time for queries and responses to develop, then pop it in the oven to bake. While we wait, Here's one I made earlier.

Stop! Who would cross the Talk Page of Death must answer me these questions three, 'ere a response thou shalt see!

1. What is your name?
2. What is your quest?
3. What is the capital of Assyria?

Thank you!Edit

Dear Stormy clouds,

thank you very much for the very helpful tip of how to use four tildes so as to automatically sign posts on Wikipedia! :)

Wikipedia:TheWikiWizardEdit

Here is my rival newspaper!Thegooduser Let's Chat 🍁 23:55, 24 August 2018 (UTC)

@Thegooduser: - I was only joking in relation to the establishment of a new paper, and feel it would likely be more productive to contribute to the Signpost, but feel free to be bold and fire ahead with the WikiWizard. I will watch this space with intense intrigue. Stormy clouds (talk) 20:05, 25 August 2018 (UTC)
It's hard for me to tell between serious and jokes when I am online. Thegooduser Let's Chat 🍁 01:00, 28 August 2018 (UTC)
Anyways here's the first issue: Wikipedia:TheWikiWizard/September 2018 — Preceding unsigned comment added by Thegooduser (talkcontribs)
@Thegooduser: - no problem. My fault for not expressing myself in a clear fashion. Nonetheless, congrats on your first issue, which seems very adeptly put-together, and altogether interesting. I have no doubt The WikiWizard will but grow in the future. Stormy clouds (talk) 03:28, 28 August 2018 (UTC)

Top 25 updateEdit

Hi, just wanted to let you know that there's a word missing at the end of the first sentence on the Top 25 Report's #5 Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald write-up: "The latest installment in Rowling's ever-expanding Wizarding World hit multiplexes worldwide, to a somewhat subdued." —Lowellian (reply) 19:52, 20 November 2018 (UTC)

Also, entry #18, Survivor Series (2018), has no written description. —Lowellian (reply) 19:58, 20 November 2018 (UTC)

@Lowellian: - sincerest apologies. MPS1992 kindly rectified the first issue, while I have since remedied the second. Stormy clouds (talk) 21:18, 20 November 2018 (UTC)

Top 25 - EXO ClarificationEdit

Hello,

I was just wondering if you could elaborate on the problem with EXO's page? Is it artificial views? I saw you mentioned malicious efforts and wanted to know exactly before writing my blog entry for another site.

Thank you!

MultiFanStan (talk) 21:06, 20 November 2018 (UTC)

@MultiFanStan: - EXO fans have long attempted to artifically inflate page views for various social media charts. Igordebraga unearthed a series of tweets co-ordinating efforts to elevate Wikipedia page views which have since been deleted, and as far as I am concerned they are blacklisted. By the WP:5000, they would sit comfortably in the Top 3. These views are clearly distorted, as there is nothing to support such high views, and also see EXO excluded on the grounds of the percentage of mobile views. Hope this clarifies things, Stormy clouds (talk) 21:23, 20 November 2018 (UTC)
It's a hint that on the Wikipedia:5000, the mobile percentage is quite low, because apparently the campaigns to boost EXO views advocate for desktop views. igordebraga 15:55, 21 November 2018 (UTC)

For all your contributions to the Top 25 Report, specially the yearly report where you seem to always have a lot to talk about. igordebraga 00:15, 7 January 2019 (UTC)

Please participate to the talk pages consultationEdit

Hello

Our team at the Wikimedia Foundation is working on a project to improve the ease-of-use and productivity of wiki talk pages. As a Teahouse host, I can imagine you’ve run into challenges explaining talk pages to first-time participants.

We want all contributors to be able to talk to each other on the wikis – to ask questions, to resolve differences, to organize projects and to make decisions. Communication is essential for the depth and quality of our content, and the health of our communities. We're currently leading a global consultation on how to improve talk pages, and we're looking for people that can report on their experiences using (or helping other people to use) wiki talk pages. We'd like to invite you to participate in the consultation, and invite new users to join too.

We thank you in advance for your participation and your help.

Just thought I'd say...Edit

if you think you're a high-functioning sociopath, you're probably not a high-functioning sociopath. Sociopaths are not known for self-critical introspection. Just like Sherlock, you're probably a high-functioning autistic, like me. Serendipodous 18:29, 23 April 2019 (UTC)
