Your signature[edit]

Hi! I noticed that your signature contains an image, which is not allowed by our policy on signatures. The reasons for this are detailed at that link. You should change your signature to no longer use an image file, to set a good example for newer users if nothing else. Emoji text is ok, so if you'd like you could go back to using 🍁 in your signature instead. Anomie 20:27, 2 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Your GA nomination of Canadian peacekeeping[edit]

The article Canadian peacekeeping you nominated as a good article has been placed on hold . The article is close to meeting the good article criteria, but there are some minor changes or clarifications needing to be addressed. If these are fixed within 7 days, the article will pass; otherwise it may fail. See Talk:Canadian peacekeeping and Talk:Canadian peacekeeping/GA1 for issues which need to be addressed.

Please help! New sockpuppet spotted[edit]

I don't know exactly how to proceed. But I'm very sure user Tromneck (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · logs · filter log · block user · block log) is a sockpuppet of a large list of socks, I don't remember the original name but Hordeolum (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · logs · filter log · block user · block log) was one of the banned socks.

How do I know this? This user is obsessed with editing religious statistics from countries all around the world (infoboxes) or the pages "Religion of XXXXX" themselves. And this user named "Tromneck" does exactly the same as Hordeolum (now permanently blocked) did before. Always editing sourced data with fake numbers or doing synth without inserting any new source.

I've also seen other permanently blocked accounts that did exactly the same edits and this belonged to a major "parent" first sockpuppet but I don't know the name. As you are an admin, can you please check this? Thank you. LucenseLugo (talk) 11:14, 18 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Hi Moxy. :) I'm looking for people to interview here. Feel free to pass if you're not interested. Clovermoss🍀 (talk) 09:47, 22 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]


Howdy Moxy. In answer to your question at WP:ANI. Mies has been blocked (starting March 13, 2024) from the Monarchy of Canada page, for two weeks. But not from its talkpage. GoodDay (talk) 10:21, 22 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Congratulations! --Gerda Arendt (talk) 19:33, 23 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]
I like to see Appalachian Spring on the Main page today (not by me, just interested and reviewed), and I also made it my story. How do you like the compromise in the composer's infobox? - How do you like the statue (look up places)? - I was undecided so show three versions ;) --Gerda Arendt (talk) 16:56, 6 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

DYK for Canadian peacekeeping[edit]

On 8 April 2024, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Canadian peacekeeping, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that Canadian peacekeepers participated in every UN peacekeeping effort from its inception until 1989? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Canadian peacekeeping. You are welcome to check how many pageviews the nominated article or articles got while on the front page (here's how, Canadian peacekeeping), and the hook may be added to the statistics page after its run on the Main Page has completed. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

Calm down[edit]

Calm down, what you actually reverted isn't what you think you reverted. Wellington Bay (talk) 14:58, 17 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

The lead is the overview. Thinking best you propose any changes on talk first at this point. Moxy🍁 15:01, 17 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

A message[edit]

About 79-93% of sources say exactly what i edit on the country areas (e.g. Puerto Rico is 9,104 km2), and your reverting is a huge mistake. Do better. (and i do admit Portugal's area doesn't need to be changed) I will face the music (talk) 19:32, 4 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Why are you changing these all over?..... They no longer equal to set numbers in the body of the articles (that is sourced) or the main articles on this topic? Can you explain why these numbers are different for you? Moxy🍁 21:47, 4 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Orphaned non-free image File:ChillLook In Look Out.jpg[edit]


Thanks for uploading File:ChillLook In Look Out.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) 17:18, 11 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Hi, sorry for being pedantic, but can you link the policy section that talks about listing pages/sea of blue? Alexanderkowal (talk) 19:57, 11 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Probably WP:SEAOFBLUE. CMD (talk) 03:33, 12 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Thank you, idk why that didn’t come up in a Google search Alexanderkowal (talk) 09:22, 12 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
I think the paragraph listing kingdoms and empires is necessary, partly to refute anti-African bias regarding their history which remains very prevalent, and because the pages on the history of certain regions are quite poor, and the pages on the individual polities are much better, so for people who want to gain a cursory view of African history those links are much more useful. Alexanderkowal (talk) 09:38, 12 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@Moxy is that okay now? Alexanderkowal (talk) 12:20, 15 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
