Question from Ims yrs on User talk:Ims yrs (16:38, 23 September 2021)Edit

How I add my details on Wikipedia --Ims yrs (talk) 16:38, 23 September 2021 (UTC)[]

@Ims yrs You can create a user page where you can write anything appropriate and Wikipedia related at User:Ims yrs (just click edit on that page). If you are talking about an article about yourself I should note that writing an autobiography is strongly discourage and most people do not satsify the Wikipedia inclusion criteria. You can read more about that at Wikipedia:Autobiography. --Trialpears (talk) 17:14, 23 September 2021 (UTC)[]

Question from Santhosh Naik21 (17:57, 27 September 2021)Edit

how to remove the heading..i want only the name but it is showing user:santoshnaik21 --Santhosh Naik21 (talk) 17:57, 27 September 2021 (UTC)[]

Hi Santhosh Naik! It looks like you're trying to make an autobiography which is strongly discouraged, which you can read more about at Wikipedia:Autobiography. Removing the prefix would make your userpage look like an article which it isn't. My recommendation would be to not make an autobiography and hope someone else makes an article if or when you have several independent and reliable sources having significant coverage of you. --Trialpears (talk) 11:51, 29 September 2021 (UTC)[]

LOC templatesEdit

Hi Trialpears, I'm not sure if you're still working on converting LOC templates but I'd urge you to be careful with edits like this, unless you have verified where the content actually comes from. For the foreign relations articles especially, it might be that the Chad-Libya section was pasted from the Libya country study and not the Chad country study, despite the article overall being centered on Chad. Thanks! By the way, if you want to help with a broader effort to add FNs to the LOC country studies (to replace the dumb generic notices), I have a worklist here and am always looking for collaborators! Happy editing! Calliopejen1 (talk) 15:42, 29 September 2021 (UTC)[]

And to follow up, on further investigation based on the content of the article when {{LOC}} was added and the dates of the various country studies, it's only the Chad CS that would apply in this case... but still, the suggestion to be careful applies as a general matter. :) Calliopejen1 (talk) 15:52, 29 September 2021 (UTC)[]
@Calliopejen1 Oh, forgot to answer, but you're absolutley correct. I should have been more careful and will be so if I return to helping out with that merger. I doubt that will happen though, I have quite a lot going on IRL. Thanks for doing the work! --Trialpears (talk) 21:41, 30 September 2021 (UTC)[]

Duplicate parametersEdit

FYI, this is not helping. Frietjes (talk) 19:57, 29 September 2021 (UTC)[]

Oh god, it's running!?!? I had some issues with PAWS not displaying any text output including testing information and interrupts on my laptop with my not fully tested version that didn't skip as aggressivly and planned to deal with the testing when I was home. Clearly it didn't stop after the handful I manually checked and continuted. I will of course take care of all the issues right now. Thanks for telling me! --Trialpears (talk) 20:06, 29 September 2021 (UTC)[]

Last weather templateEdit

Would you be able to switch the talkpage banners for articles using Template:WikiProject Meteorology to Template:WikiProject Weather? I believe we are ready to enact the last (hopefully) talkpage banner merger since a workaround to task force sorting was pointed out by Primefac. I still have to sort them manually, but they I should be able to locate them using the Pet Scan tool. NoahTalk 21:14, 4 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Question from Renaki1983 (13:13, 13 October 2021)Edit

Hello and thank you for being my mentor. I am new to wikipedia and I'm trying to offer my knowledge on electronic music by preparing lots of biographies of notable Greek Electronic Musicians, or contribute to their articles. I am currently working on Draft:V-Sag and I was wondering if you have any suggestions to have in mind while I'm starting the other artist's biographies. Thank you very much --Renaki1983 (talk) 13:13, 13 October 2021 (UTC)[]
