User talk:Amorrow

Return to "Amorrow" page.

Hello guys

OK. I am back. Let us please, please TALK about it rather than just pulling out the ban hammer. Please. Especially User:Karajou. Please.--Amorrow (talk) 13:47, 9 January 2021 (EST)

Incivility

blocked for a day for incivility. Try talking about that. Karajou (talk) 03:45, 10 January 2021 (EST)

Conservapedia is not a place where you can put up friends or family. It is NOT ABOUT YOU. Karajou (talk) 00:24, 12 January 2021 (EST)

Gypsy Taub

I just removed your Gypsy Taug article, in which you posted personal and legal information concerning this individual. When you come back, I expect you to remove any and all similar postings you made immediately. This website is NOT a personal platform for you to make legal threats and/or harassment against anyone you feel may have slighted you, and it will stop. Final warning.

Please don't create duplicate categories

I noticed that you've created some categories that are just duplicates of already-existing ones, which isn't particularly necessary. If you want a category title changed, you can add a move request using {{move}}. —LTMay D.C., his mother, and I.S. be all well! Wednesday, 16:44, 20 January 2021 (EST)

OK. Thanks for the heads up. I am just blowing through Special:WantedCategories as efficiently of my time as I can. I will try to check for dup's but it can be time-consuming.--Amorrow (talk) 16:51, 20 January 2021 (EST)
Unfortunately, that's mostly why they haven't been created...it requires checking for duplicates. the "Wanted Categories" list is just generated based on category names which have been referenced, but not created. Sometimes that is just due to typos or nomenclature. Other times, someone is in a hurry and doesn't check categories before adding them to their page. --DavidB4 (TALK) 16:58, 20 January 2021 (EST)
For example, the Category:Lists of Birds tag on List of birds of Telangana should probably just be replaced with Category:Birds. In general, a category of one page is not helpful, so when I see that, I'll ggenerally just change the category tag. --DavidB4 (TALK) 17:01, 20 January 2021 (EST)
I suspect many dups come from cut n pastes from other wikis. RobSFree Kyle! 17:03, 20 January 2021 (EST)
Again, thanks for the heads up. As far as I can guess, no one has cleaned up WantedCategories in many, many years. I am just doing what I can afford to with my limited time.--Amorrow (talk) 17:05, 20 January 2021 (EST)

Hi there.

I can see some decent work from you, also well done for hitting 4k edits. --Yeschayi ~ Lets Chat! (talk) 07:30, 22 January 2021 (EST)

Well hello yourself! What do you guys do for amusement around here?--Amorrow (talk) 07:32, 22 January 2021 (EST)
I make new articles about, really anything that I know about that needs an article. --Yeschayi ~ Lets Chat! (talk) 07:34, 22 January 2021 (EST)
Hey, maybe you can help me with my favorite: Elizabeth Morgan case.--Amorrow (talk) 07:36, 22 January 2021 (EST)

Encyclopedic content

Andrew, this is an encyclopedia, so it is limited to encyclopedic content. Addresses are non-encyclopedic. Chess content is most welcome, such as strategies or history, or starting a chess club or contests. Thanks.--Andy Schlafly (talk) 13:43, 22 January 2021 (EST)

Got it. Could you please undelete Gypsy Taub so that I can remove the address on that page?--Amorrow (talk) 13:49, 22 January 2021 (EST)

Images

Unlocking the Images in Image Cat could take weeks, but I'll stay at it. Hopefully I can do a couple hundred day. RobSFree Kyle! 19:06, 22 January 2021 (EST)

Gee, thanks for your hard work. Pywikibot can easily do that. The command would be
python pwb.py protect -unprotect -cat:Image
That would be very easy. I could do it right now if my account had the privileges. The job would be done in five minutes rather than in five days. If the privs just cannot be done for my account then I bet that User:DavidB4 would be happy to do the task. Really, it is a snap once you set up the tools.--Amorrow (talk) 19:09, 22 January 2021 (EST)
What a relief. Have you talked to Davidb4 about it? He's better qualified than me. And we need special permission to run a bot, but I think David can get that. RobSFree Kyle! 21:49, 22 January 2021 (EST)
I followed through at User talk:DavidB4#A quick task for you.--Amorrow (talk) 23:09, 22 January 2021 (EST)
I do not have the permissions to unprotect images, or pages. I have also never actually used that function, so I don't know for sure how to do it. I could probably figure it out. --DavidB4 (TALK) 23:11, 22 January 2021 (EST)
Then it seems that getting the privs for my account is the priority objective. As far as the bot permissions go, I am just running a script with no custom python programming. The script is already tested, debugged and is high quality software. The only thing I had to create was the above command line.--Amorrow (talk) 23:19, 22 January 2021 (EST)
They were locked by Admins, so only a full Administrator can do it. --DavidB4 (TALK) 00:01, 23 January 2021 (EST)
Yes, but some full administrators can barely program their microwave, let alone install and correctly use python. I still say the easy path is to just ignore seniority and other trash like that and just make me an admin. For that matter, make me a bureaucrat and I will show this project what dynamic, visionary leadership can do to improve the Alexa ranking.--Amorrow (talk) 00:06, 23 January 2021 (EST)
