Remember to always sign your posts on talk pages. You can do this either by clicking on the Insert-signature.png button on the edit toolbar or by typing four tildes (~~~~) at the end of your post. This will automatically insert your signature, a link to this (your talk) page, and a timestamp.

The best way to learn about something is to experience it. Explore, learn, contribute, and don't forget to have some fun!
To get some practice editing you can use a sandbox. You can create your own private sandbox for use any time. Perfect for working on bigger projects. Then for easy access in the future, you can put {{My sandbox}} on your user page. By the way, seeing as you haven't created a user page yet, simply click here to start it.

Disambiguation link notification for October 30[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. An automated process has detected that when you recently edited Boer, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Boor (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are usually incorrect, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of unrelated topics with similar titles. (Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.)

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 09:19, 30 October 2018 (UTC)

May 2020[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Robertsky. I noticed that you added or changed content in an article, Chinese Singaporeans, but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed and archived in the page history for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so. You can have a look at the tutorial on citing sources. If you think I made a mistake, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. robertsky (talk) 17:42, 5 May 2020 (UTC)

Viktor Babariko[edit]

Hi, I believe Babariko's page (and those of other leaders of opposition) should be moved too: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Viktar_Babaryka Buxareu (talk) 20:43, 16 August 2020 (UTC)

It seems it is the same case. I would say if there is consensus to move to Tikhanovskaya/Tikhanovsky, we should also move the other articles without the need for a move request, assuming it is clear the name is the most frequently used in English media sources. Vpab15 (talk) 21:14, 16 August 2020 (UTC)
Yes, agreed. Buxareu (talk) 21:25, 16 August 2020 (UTC)

Closing move requests[edit]

Hi Vpab15, I had to reopen the request at Talk:Avengers (2020 video game)#Requested move 7 September 2020 because it was closed prematurely. Move requests are designed to remain open for at least seven days to give interested editors a chance to participate. Move requests that are eligible to be closed can be found on the WP:RM page under elapsed listings and in the backlog. Thank you for your help with these move requests and for closing only those that have elapsed or are in the backlog. P.I. Ellsworth  ed. put'r there 01:54, 11 September 2020 (UTC)

Hi Paine Ellsworth, it seems I messed up, sorry. I usually check move requests from the backlog only, not sure how I got into that move request. I will be more careful in the future. Vpab15 (talk) 08:38, 11 September 2020 (UTC)

Closure of RM at Époisses de Bourgogne[edit]

Hi, I wouldn't say there's a consensus at Époisses de Bourgogne yet. There also may still be ongoing discussion between Born2cycle and In ictu oculi. I suggest reopening it and relisting it for another week. Anarchyte (talkwork) 06:44, 18 September 2020 (UTC)

I'd like to add my agreement. The question of which article should refer to the village and which to the cheese is an interesting one. Jean-de-Nivelle (talk) 09:21, 18 September 2020 (UTC)
  • Discussion was ongoing (and has even continued after the close) so I agree this is a case for relisting. Vpab15 please undo your close and relist. If this goes to a formal MR the RM is likely to be reopened and why have a reluctance to cooperate in your record? —В²C 14:32, 18 September 2020 (UTC)
I have re-opened the RM. I thought the consensus was clear, but no harm in extending the discussion to allow more editors to participate. Vpab15 (talk) 15:03, 18 September 2020 (UTC)
Vpab15, I have relisted the discussion for you. Megan☺️ Talk to the monster 19:29, 18 September 2020 (UTC)

Your request at WP:RM/T[edit]

Following your request at WP:RM/TR, I have done the move request for you. Please do all the post move clean up per consensus. Best regards Megan☺️ Talk to the monster 19:21, 18 September 2020 (UTC)

Princess Isabelle of Orléans-Braganza[edit]

You closed the RM as "moved" but you don't seem to have done the move. PamD 23:40, 21 September 2020 (UTC)

I don't have the permissions to move the article, but I have requested a technical move (see WP:RMT). This will be done shortly. Vpab15 (talk) 23:43, 21 September 2020 (UTC)
Thanks. It might be more helpful to other editors to say "Move requested as uncontroversial", rather than the confusingly inaccurate statement "Moved". Or drop a note in the talk page of the proposing editor, who is clearly going to have it on their watchlist.  PamD 05:26, 22 September 2020 (UTC)
Or tweak your edit summary to say "move requested" rather than "page moved" in these cases? PamD 05:29, 22 September 2020 (UTC)
Sure, will do that in the future. The article has been moved now. Vpab15 (talk) 11:20, 22 September 2020 (UTC)
