Hi Nameless245, could you be a bit more specific? Are you trying to modify a template that would change all pages using the template, or the information given to the template by a specific page? It would also be useful to know which page you are referring to. Justiyaya 00:18, 13 November 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Question from Skvjold (20:45, 14 November 2023)[edit]

Hello! I am making a new page in my sandbox and wanted to ask if you could look at it before I move it to the main namespace. It is at

All feedback welcome! And thank you in advance. --Skvjold (talk) 20:45, 14 November 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Hi there @Skvjold, I don't think that's a really good idea right now as the draft needs significant cleanup as for it to be acceptable under a few guidelines, namely WP:BLP, Wikipedia's quite serious about having almost everything about a living person referenced on the site, and the Life and Career section is a bit short on references right now. More significantly, I think that there may be potentially notability issues (does the subject have two reliable secondary sources providing significant coverage?) and a over reliance of primary sources.
Do you have a conflict of interest with the subject? The images on the article appear to be uploaded by the subject's account the same day you started the article. Justiyaya 02:22, 15 November 2023 (UTC)[reply]
Thank you for this! I will look into WP:BLP and get my head around secondary sources.
I know the subject - we were colleagues years ago - and I asked him to upload images for the article. Would that be considered a conflict of interest? Skvjold (talk) 19:16, 15 November 2023 (UTC)[reply]
I would declare one, you could do so by placing
{{UserboxCOI|1=Scott Henderson}} on your userpage Justiyaya 03:39, 16 November 2023 (UTC)[reply]
ping @Skvjold Justiyaya 03:39, 16 November 2023 (UTC)[reply]
Does declaring this mean the article will automatically be rejected? I've added the notice to my user page, along with explanation that we worked together twenty years ago. Skvjold (talk) 19:06, 21 November 2023 (UTC)[reply]
@Skvjold Nope! COI editing is allowed, reviewers may reject articles if it is undeclared (paid undeclared COI editing is against the terms of service and unpaid without declaration is against guidelines) but generally they should accept and reject articles mostly normally if it is.
The most significant issue right now is notability, could you give me two reliable, secondary sources that provide significant coverage to the subject so that I'm sure you are not wasting your time? Unreferenced information could be removed, tone could be fixed, but if the subject does not meet Wikipedia's inclusion criteria of multiple, reliable, secondary sources providing significant coverage, the article still would not be published.
Making a new article here is a really frustrating process, and often discourages a lot of people, if you really want to do this, good luck! There's a bunch of other tasks here also if you want to try them. Justiyaya 02:04, 22 November 2023 (UTC)[reply]
Hi @Justiyaya
How do these look as secondary sources with significant coverage of the subject:
- Deconstructing Product Design: Exploring the Form, Function, Usability : Scott’s designs are featured in this book, and Scott is quoted throughout as an expert on what makes these designs successful and impactful
- Silicon Valley Insider Podcast : talks about Scott’s track record in mass-produced products, and the design philosophy his products are based on Skvjold (talk) 06:33, 30 November 2023 (UTC)[reply]
@Skvjold It won't make a really strong case. Interviews are usually questionable as a secondary source and I was unable to access the google books section but I'm assuming there would be minimal biographical coverage but more so discussion on the design. I don't see much more in the draft at a glance as well. You could ask for a second opinion at the teahouse but I not really confident that the subject is notable.

DYK for Lessons in Chemistry (novel)[edit]

On 22 November 2023, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Lessons in Chemistry (novel), which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that while writing Lessons in Chemistry, the author self-studied chemistry and was a full-time copywriter? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Lessons in Chemistry (novel). You are welcome to check how many pageviews the nominated article or articles got while on the front page (here's how, Lessons in Chemistry (novel)), 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.

Liu Qingyang[edit]

Some months back you offered to help with Chinese subjects. So, I came across a really poorly written article on the Women's International Democratic Federation. A bunch of editors jumped in to help me improve it. At any rate, we discovered a ton of redlinked women. One, Liu Chin-yang (China) was the vice-chairman of a commission of women who went to investigate conditions during the Korean War.[1] I think she is zh:刘清扬, in part because the Chinese article says she was active with Deng Yingchao, who was definitely involved with WIDF and because other sources say she was a member of the All-China Women's Federation, which was a WIDF affiliate. I have found numerous biographies in English, (you probably have to remove the .mx, but it won't let me because I am in Mexico)[2],[3],[4],[5], but none mentions the Korean investigation. The ISBN on the one cited source in the Chinese article is not valid (it gives me an entirely different book) and most of the information in the article seems to follow a narrative about her written by her daughter, so is non-independent and doesn't mention Korea. So, my questions are, 1) are there sources to confirm that "Liu Chin-yang" who went to Korea is Liu Qingyang of the Chinese WP article, 2) do you want to write it? I'd be very appreciative of any help to unravel the red links in the WIDF article and if we can figure out this one, there is another waiting to be solved... SusunW (talk) 16:26, 22 November 2023 (UTC) (Please always ping me)[reply]

Hiya @SusunW, that's a really cool subject, thanks for leaving it on my talk :D I'm going to dig around a bit on the weekends. I would love to write the article but might take me quite some time. I'll post an update sometime soon after I've found something! Justiyaya 01:52, 23 November 2023 (UTC)[reply]
Yay! Time is irrelevant if we are able to create a well sourced article on her. She's the kind of woman I find fascinating, independent, internationally engaged, and working to improve the lives of other women. If I can help with sources, context materials, or anything else please let me know. There are several articles about the Korean investigation in the WIDF article. I learned about the Chinese Marriage Law if 1950 when writing Umi Sardjono and there is quite a lengthy discussion of it in the sources for her article. (As I said before, usually one person I am writing about leads me to another. These WIDF women's interconnections are really interesting to me.) SusunW (talk) 13:43, 23 November 2023 (UTC)[reply]
@SusunW I've taken a look through the Chinese magazine and journal databases I can get access to and found a bit on her. I skimmed through them and saw very little documented for the 1950s. I do think it is the same person but I need to dig more to find sources mentioning her involvement. The signature on the second last page of the report does have the same characters (劉清揚).
Haven't had a lot of free time lately and been a bit sick. Hoping to finish research and perhaps an article on this before the new year though. Justiyaya 06:48, 9 December 2023 (UTC)[reply]
Sorry that you've been sick. Hope you are better soon. Glad to know my hunch was good. It'll be nice to fill in that gap in her biography. As you have time, no worries. SusunW (talk) 13:22, 9 December 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Question from Reme77 (17:08, 24 November 2023)[edit]

Hi! Wikipedia gave me under your mentorship hahah, what would be the best way to translate an article? Or is it just as fine to make one on your own ? --Reme77 (talk) 17:08, 24 November 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Hi @Reme77! Which article would you like to translate? It's alright to make one from scratch, but is quite difficult and may not be possible (subjects require two reliable secondary sources providing significant coverage to them). WP:1st might be a good place to go :D Justiyaya 17:16, 24 November 2023 (UTC)[reply]
Hi again, the article is Oliveira dos cen anos
The song was covered by almost all major music magazines and major publications + some nation and region wide ones so I believe should be fine ? Reme77 (talk) 17:19, 24 November 2023 (UTC)[reply]
Yup if that is the case then I think so too! I can't review Spanish language sources but coverage seems wide enough. Translation is probably a good choice, it seems nicely written. IXCat (the author of the es-wiki article) seems quite active here, not sure if she'd be willing to lend a hand. Anyways good luck and happy editing! Justiyaya 18:00, 24 November 2023 (UTC)[reply]
This was very fun! Thanks a lot for the suggestion hahah, technically my first article ! mostly adapted but not entirely soooo hahah (how do I add the contains translated text from the article tag?) Oliveira dos cen anos Reme77 (talk) 23:54, 24 November 2023 (UTC)[reply]
@Reme77, putting translated from the existing Spanish Wikipedia article at es:Oliveira dos cen anos; see its history for attribution. in any edit summary would work. You might want to copy edit the article a bit, the page contains WP:NPOV issues. Words like "countless legends" should not be included as to maintain a neutral tone and some other parts could do with some cleanup for clarity. This looks good for a first article, have fun editing and feel free to ask me more questions if you need anything! Justiyaya 04:21, 25 November 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Question from TpK2023 (14:11, 27 November 2023)[edit]

It's about Waldrada, I believe Waldrada had a daughter named Waldrada like her mother before her. As her "of worms" suggests, her mother would be "of Orléans" & her mother "of Autun". How do I make this suggestion? --TpK2023 (talk) 14:11, 27 November 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Hi @TpK2023, do you have any reliable sources backing up your claims? If so I might be able to fix it for you. Justiyaya 14:26, 27 November 2023 (UTC)[reply]
No, no documentation I just got to thinking how it didn't make much sense to me that she was born in 801 and him unknown & have a child in 859.
First husband died in 834, seems like alot of years to me. Be nice if we knew when she died as that would help hugely.
And of course I could be totally wrong and that's how it happened.
Either way, I thank you for listening to me and my thoughts... TpK2023 (talk) 14:39, 27 November 2023 (UTC)[reply]
@TpK2023 I'm assuming you are referring to Waldrada of Worms, the article is questionable at the best, and the statement you are referencing is unreferenced in the first place. If you would like to remove it that would work :D I'm honestly not even sure the subject exists, I can't find any mention of "Waldrada" in the only reference in the article, but would take a closer look later Justiyaya 01:13, 28 November 2023 (UTC)[reply]

I'd suggest you do some research independently though, verify the sources in the article and find your own sources backing up what you are saying. Justiyaya 22:42, 28 November 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Question from VIHEMBA PAULUS (14:20, 2 January 2024)[edit]

Good day and complement for the new year.

I wrote an article about an association called the National African Students'Association, however I have noticed it is not yet published. May you please help me --VIHEMBA PAULUS (talk) 14:20, 2 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Hi @VIHEMBA PAULUS, I don't think the draft should be published at this moment. The article relies too much on primary sources and does not seem notable, as in it does not have multiple, published sources providing significant coverage on the subject. I've added a banner on the page and you could press submit when you think the draft is ready for a review. Justiyaya 14:28, 2 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Hi @Frankxc, Sophie's Choice (novel) already is in Category:Novels about the aftermath of the Holocaust which is in Category:Novels about the Holocaust which is what I believe you are referring to. Usually we don't include articles in categories if it is already in a category under that category... if that makes any sense at all. Justiyaya 03:47, 4 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Thank you for Reviewing[edit]

Hey @Justiyaya Thank you for reviewing Nepal Police Hospital. I hope your reviews and contributions in Wikipedia will play a great role. I would like to request you to review other pages mentioned on my User Page too when you get free time. Cheers and Happy editing. WikiEditorNepali (talk) 09:26, 6 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]

@WikiEditorNepali Most of the articles you've created has already been patrolled, I've reviewed the last one on your userpage. Although next time it'd be best not to post on multiple reviewers' talk pages asking for a review, we'll get to it sometime along with the rest of the articles in the queue. Good job with the articles and keep up the good work! Justiyaya 10:00, 6 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Thank you @Justiyaya
My intension was just to appreciate you guys for the valuable time and efforts to review articles which we create but not to post on multiple reviewers' talk pages asking for a review. Anyway, it's my bad that it sounded like that. Happy reviewing! Cheers. WikiEditorNepali (talk) 10:09, 6 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Question from Linecs Mungumba Bizzoo on Help:Wikitext (19:51, 9 January 2024)[edit]

:subst: trouble[edit]

Hey, @Justiyaya.

I know the questions I'm supposed to ask mentors are about editing, but I want to know what to do when you are supposed to do something that includes :subst:, such as nominating for adminship. Oo-rah! the marines are here (talk) 00:56, 10 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Hi @Oo-rah! the marines are here! I'd suggest reading more about it on WP:Subst, I think the page would explain the process much better than what I could do. Justiyaya 16:43, 10 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Question from Julie Ferdon (01:22, 10 January 2024)[edit]

Hello, I was simply trying to correct the record. My father never attended the University of Michigan. He attended Marietta College before transferring to the University of New Mexico where graduated. My other changes were simple edits but you can ignore them. --Julie Ferdon (talk) 01:22, 10 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Hi @Julie Ferdon! It would be helpful if you are willing to share what page you are trying to change. If you want a more private way of discussing this, I'd suggest emailing the Volunteer Response Team. Your account seems to have not made any other edits outside of posting this, so I'm not really sure what you are talking about. Justiyaya 16:39, 10 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Appreciation for your assistance[edit]

Hello @Justiyaya,

Thank you very much for your recent assistance on my new article! I saw on your user page that you are seeking to adopt new users and I am interested in knowing how that works. I am actually not a new user, since I have had this account for a long time. I have only started editing more within the past few years and would like to know more about Wikipedia editing skills. Thank you very much, and I look forward to hearing back! Kevin9217 (talk) 04:43, 15 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Hiya Kevin9217! It's been a bit since I've done adoption and it could really be anything. Some mentors go with quite an involved approach, offering tutorials and assignments on specific policy sections. I don't see that being really helpful for you. You could also just send me questions on whatever and I'll answer them or point you to someplace which can. What would you be interested in working on? Justiyaya 09:51, 15 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Hey @Justiyaya!
Thank you for the response. I would like to start off by learning shortcuts to editing, and how to operate bots, since the editing I do is mostly manual. I look like to know what are some good shortcuts, advice, and tools/bots that can assist me in the editing process. Kevin9217 (talk) 10:40, 15 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@Kevin9217 Ah I see :D I've never really touched bots but I've got a few semi-automated tools. Don't think you've used any so here's the more basic ones.
Perhaps first enable the script installer for easier installing in Special:Preferences#mw-prefsection-gadgets.
for editing
  • WP:TW for reverting much faster, deleting, and general patrol work
  • WP:HotCat for categorization
  • WP:Rater for quick wikiproject tagging
for navigation and browsing
You might also want to try WP:refill and perhaps the internet archive bot (I've not played with that as much)
I've got a bit more installed for more specific things but the above should be good for most users. Justiyaya 11:22, 15 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@Justiyaya Thank you for the resources!
May I feel free to contact you in the future regarding any other assistance about editing? Best, Kevin9217 (talk) 16:26, 15 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@Kevin9217 Sure! Feel free to message me anytime :D Justiyaya 23:03, 15 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Tommy Prine flag[edit]

Hello @Justiyaya, Concerning the flag you placed on Tommy Prine "tone or style may not reflect the encyclopedic tone used on Wikipedia". I understand why the flag was placed. I updated some wording and removed other statements to make the article read more encyclopedic. Do you have other concerns or suggestions to fix the article? Gumballhead1of2 (talk) 09:12, 16 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]

@Gumballhead1of2 I think the more accurate tag would've been WP:NPOV, here's some examples that are still in the article:
Real tragedy struck Quite classic example in Help:Introduction to policies and guidelines/neutrality quiz
blazing his own path "blazing"?
of late folk legend is "legend" is subjective term? Maybe "influential"?
I think most new wikipedians (certainly me) had had this issue when we were getting started. Thanks for responding to feedback :D If you have any other questions regarding it, or just Wikipedia in general, feel free to message back! Justiyaya 12:10, 16 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Thank you for the detailed, constructive criticism! I made changes to address neutrality concerns, and hopefully is ready to have tag removed. Gumballhead1of2 (talk) 20:45, 16 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Question from The-artchive (22:00, 23 January 2024)[edit]

Hi Justiyaya, I mainly joined to make some edits to the Wikipedia page about the site I own, Artchive:

What is the process? Can I claim "ownership" or something like that?

I will make appropriate edits to bring the article up to date, as there have been many changes to the site.

Thanks! --The-artchive (talk) 22:00, 23 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]

@The-artchive Generally a bad idea to do so. You could not claim ownership of an article nor could you control what it says. You should not edit the page directly and should only suggest changes on the talk page, adding {{edit COI}}. You should declare the conflict of interest on your talkpage with {{UserboxCOI|1=The Artchive}} and review the conflict of interest policy. Lastly, you might want to change your username. Usernames that are names of organizations are not allowed, something like <username> at The artchive would be, you can create a new account or change it by following WP:Changing usernames.

This article is needed, Ubiquitous presently links to Omnipresent, which does not explain the word found in many Wikipedia articles. However, that link sending people to omnipresent needs to link to here. Once that happens, adjective and adverb can removed from the title. The system won't allow two ubiquitous articles. Starlighsky (talk) 13:56, 24 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Hi Starlighsky then the procedure would be to open a discussion for Ubiquitous to be a inter-wiki redirect to wiktionary, not creating a new page on Wikipedia. I'm not exactly familiar with policy surrounding them, but I'm guessing it'd involve RfD… probably. I'll take a closer look tomorrow. Justiyaya 14:47, 24 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks. My experience so far is that I am basically doing exactly what needs to be done for the issue, more or less. Starlighsky (talk) 15:27, 24 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]
I am not sure how to open that discussion, though. Starlighsky (talk) 18:31, 24 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@Starlighsky I've opened a discussion here. Could I tag both Ubiquitous (adverb or adjective) and Ubiquitous (adjective) for deletion (per WP:Wikipedia is not a dictionary)? Feel free to place the sentences in Wiktionary (I'm not really familiar with them). Justiyaya 12:01, 25 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Ubiquitous (adjective) is needed because it corrects the defective redirect that was going to omnipresence.
Here is my line of reasoning: Ubiquitous is needed as an article because it helps people to upgrade the article ubiquitous computing, which needs our help at the moment. Starlighsky (talk) 13:55, 25 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@Starlighsky But Wikipedia is not a dictionary and thus articles like them should be imported to Wiktionary or made a redirect to them. I see that but the way to solve it is not in making something new, but to engage in discussion at the RfD. Justiyaya 13:58, 25 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]
I added the information from the article to Wiktionary Starlighsky (talk) 14:56, 25 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@Starlighsky Would you be okay with me requesting deletion of the page then? Justiyaya 14:58, 25 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]
I am okay with it, even though it is embarrassing.
How do I edit the redirect article for the word? i am having trouble finding it. Starlighsky (talk) 15:02, 25 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]
The more I think about it, though, the article is easier to read here than it is on Wiktionary. The information is needed here because the Ubiquitous Computing article needs a lot of help in terms of better editing. The more editors have a clear view of the improved version of the term, the more editors likely able to edit the computing article and related articles. Starlighsky (talk) 15:10, 25 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@Starlighsky I'll figure it out if you would like me to. Its not really embarrassing, I've had few of mine deleted too.
I would agree that a it is easier to read here, but that's not what Wikipedia is for. Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, not a dictionary. Other improvements could be made inside the article if you feel like its really unclear. Justiyaya 16:01, 25 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Wikipedia has ubiquity (ability) also redirecting to omnipresence.
There is definitely a need for an article that redirects go to for the correct definition. Editors creating links are not going to see Wiktionary terms as options for links. To me, the lack of the proper terminology in links is affecting editorial quality. An article on ubiquitous in medicine is separate and distinct to the article on omnipresense which discusses theology. Starlighsky (talk) 19:12, 25 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Question from Neilhuse (02:45, 25 January 2024)[edit]

Hello, nice to meet you! I wanted to create a Wikipedia page about a co-worker, business owner, entrepreneur and philanthropist. How do I go about creating creating a new page for him? --Neilhuse (talk) 02:45, 25 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Hi @Neilhuse, quite a bad idea. An article about yourself isn't necessarily a good thing, and its a really difficult task that is probably not worth it. Justiyaya 12:03, 25 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Hello, the article isn't about myself. It's about a co-worker. Neilhuse (talk) 13:15, 25 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@Neilhuse I am aware, most of the same advice applies, you'd still have a conflict of interest to the subject, you'd still have to work with the notability guidelines. Most instances of this I've seen would lead to no results, I'd strongly discourage it. Justiyaya 13:20, 25 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]
ok, thanks Neilhuse (talk) 13:20, 25 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Lincoln Middle School Article[edit]

Hello, I have gone to this school before, so just today I started working on an article for it. It may not seem like much, but it's a start. I'll improve it tomorrow, as it is very late for me right now. Thank you for the tag, I know my article is basic. I'm a newer editor to Wikipedia, so if I make a mistake, feel free to correct me. C0smoNauticalMile (talk) 04:51, 28 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Hi @C0smoNauticalMile, its best to review the notability guidelines before continuing with this article. If you've gone to the school before, keep WP:Verifiability mind while writing the article. Justiyaya 05:00, 28 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]
C0smoNauticalMile, I've raised the same concern--with rare exceptions, elementary and middle schools are not considered notable enough to merit encyclopedia articles. 2601:19E:4180:6D50:65F5:930C:B0B2:CD63 (talk) 05:02, 28 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Oh, sorry, I didn't know. I just thought that, since my other local schools had their own articles, and that I know a lot about my own school, I would write an article for it. However, I do see your point that it is not common for there to be plentiful information and importance in elementary/middle schools, compared to high schools or colleges. 😞 C0smoNauticalMile (talk) 05:24, 28 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@C0smoNauticalMile I'll move the page to draft space for now, if it meets the requirements, then feel free to move it back with the sources added. Justiyaya 07:33, 28 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Alright, I'll take it from there, and improve it until I've made it proper enough for a review. Thank you. C0smoNauticalMile (talk) 17:15, 28 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Custom Infoboxes[edit]

Hello @Justiyaya,

Glad to be in touch again. I would like to know if there are any Wikipedia tools which can be used to create election infoboxes or custom election maps. I am thinking of one where states can be filled in.

If not, do you know any general tools that you are aware of? Thanks and I look forward to hearing back! Kevin9217 (talk) 03:38, 1 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]

@Kevin9217 I'm not great with this, I'm sure Template:Infobox election would work for most elections but I don't think there is any tool really good at working with templates. (in here and here at least)
For making maps, Commons:Map resources might help and Wikipedia:Graphics Lab/Map workshop might do it for you. Justiyaya 11:39, 1 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]
