Guideline and policy news

  • A request for comment is open that proposes a process for the community to revoke administrative permissions. This follows a 2019 RfC in favor of creating one such a policy.
  • A request for comment is in progress to remove F7 (invalid fair-use claim) subcriterion a, which covers immediate deletion of non-free media with invalid fair-use tags.
  • A request for comment seeks to grant page movers the delete-redirect userright, which allows moving a page over a single-revision redirect, regardless of that redirect's target. The full proposal is at Wikipedia:Page mover/delete-redirect.
  • A request for comment asks if sysops may place the General sanctions/Coronavirus disease 2019 editnotice template on pages in scope that do not have page-specific sanctions?
  • There is a discussion in progress concerning automatic protection of each day's featured article with Pending Changes protection.

Technical news

  • When blocking an IPv6 address with Twinkle, there is now a checkbox with the option to just block the /64 range. When doing so, you can still leave a block template on the initial, single IP address' talkpage.
  • When protecting a page with Twinkle, you can now add a note if doing so was in response to a request at WP:RfPP, and even link to the specific revision.
  • There have been a number of reported issues with Pending Changes. Most problems setting protection appear to have been resolved (phab:T273317) but other issues with autoaccepting edits persist (phab:T275322).

Guideline and policy news

  • Following a request for comment, page movers were granted the delete-redirect userright, which allows moving a page over a single-revision redirect, regardless of that redirect's target.

Technical news

  • When you move a page that many editors have on their watchlist the history can be split and it might also not be possible to move it again for a while. This is because of a job queue problem. (T278350)

In reply to your email

I am not particularly active any more, unfortunately, but you are welcome to ask your question. Please ping me to make sure I get a notification. If it's related to this edit, I recommend to contact the editor in question and to ask if they are paid and aware of the disclosure requirements. Often enough paid editors are willing to comply with the requirements if they're explained to them in enough detail, and it's easy enough to get the details wrong without operating in bad faith. If they deny being paid and you have reason to still think that they are, it's time to present your evidence, but keep WP:OUTING in mind. If no private information is involved, WP:AN/I might be a good place; if private information is involved, I'd advise you to privately contact an admin or, if necessary, a CheckUser. Huon (talk) 22:01, 1 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Huon: Thanks for your response. It is related to that, but with a few steps in between. You claimed to have private evidence that Lucyprince27 was an undisclosed paid editor. I was wondering whether you would be able to share any of that information with me, and if not, if you could give your opinion on whether any of that information might implicate GeoLen85. Compassionate727 (T·C) 22:19, 1 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
While GeoLen85 is clearly associated with Packshaw in some way (and there is information missing on Commons since the image of Packshaw is still tagged as GeoLen85's own work which it apparently is not), the information I have on Lucyprince27 does not help in any way except by making it very unlikely that the two accounts are run by the same person. Huon (talk) 22:55, 1 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Huon: Good to know, thank you. Compassionate727 (T·C) 17:25, 2 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Shlomo Maital's Article

Thanks for the input on the article. I'll try to edit it according to your comments. I'm not sure what you mean by "This article contains paid contributions". I'm a paid editor and this is clearly stated on the talk page of the article. --Adig-pt (talk) 09:45, 5 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Adig-pt: Sorry for the delayed response! We conventionally put ((paid contributions)) at the top of articles that have other flaggable maintenance problems that are the result of contributions by paid editors; this is just a courtesy to our readers, informing them that the problems with the article are caused by someone who was more concerned about the subject of the article than Wikipedia, rather than someone who just didn't know what they were doing. (This hostility to paid editors is just part of our culture, and I personally think it is sometimes carried too far, unfortunately.) Anyway, once the other problems with the article are resolved, the ((paid contributions)) template goes away too. Compassionate727 (T·C) 17:30, 9 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks for the detailed answer. I'll work on improving the article. Appreciate your work and patience! --Adig-pt (talk) 07:37, 10 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Speedy deletion nomination of Category:Wikipedian WikiGryphons

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Category:Wikipedian WikiGryphons requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G4 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page appears to be a repost of material that was previously deleted following a deletion discussion, such as at Articles for deletion. When a page has substantially identical content to that of a page deleted after a discussion, and any changes in the content do not address the reasons for which the material was previously deleted, it may be deleted at any time.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here. * Pppery * it has begun... 20:10, 14 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Relisting RfDs

Hey, thanks for helping out with clerking at RfD, but some of the discussions that you relisted today could have been closed without further discussion. At a quick glance, the discussions for WWAFAWDWG?, George Fan, Next National Assembly for Wales election, and Next Welsh Assembly Election could have been closed as they were. Quorum standards for RfD are significantly lower than for AfD; a nomination of a redirect for deletion with no further participation is generally considered to be sufficient after a week has passed. signed, Rosguill talk 15:53, 21 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Rosguill: Oof. I had realized the standards were lower, but not that much lower. Well, if you want to action any of them now, I have no objections. Compassionate727 (T·C) 15:58, 21 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I came to complain about the same thing, but I'm glad to see someone beat me to it. I wanted to note that at WP:RGUIDE it says If a good-faith RfD nomination proposes to delete a redirect and has no discussion after at least 7 days, the default result is delete, which is important because PROD doesn't exist for redirects. In general, if you do not have sufficient experience at a given forum, it is not a good idea to dive right in and start clerking. It is usually much more appreciated to participate in discussions with well-thought out and researched !votes as it can go a long way to establish a consensus and make closing easier for those who do have the given experience. -- Tavix (talk) 16:50, 21 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Tavix: My bad. I was active several years ago at RfD, but clearly, I either never understood things or have forgotten everything since then. Very sorry for all the inconvenience. Compassionate727 (T·C) 17:06, 21 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
No worries at all, it's not a big deal in the grand scene of things. I'm just glad to see you back active again, it's always good to have a fresh perspective on things from someone who has been here before. I remember your name, but it has to have been maybe five years? -- Tavix (talk) 17:22, 21 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Tavix: Something like that. My activity level waxes and wanes, and when I am here, I tend to jump around erratically between maintenance areas. But right now, RfD seems to have my attention. Compassionate727 (T·C) 16:51, 23 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

In general, second relists aren't that common at RfD and most often the discussion can be closed by then. Just letting you know. J947messageedits 20:48, 26 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@J947: Thanks. I'm used to AfDs going to three relists before closing as no consensus, but I understand why RfD would be different. I'll keep it in mind. Compassionate727 (T·C) 21:14, 26 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I was hoping to see you cut back on the amount of relisting after J947's comment, but after seeing a bunch of third(!) relists from you recently, I thought I'd share a blurb of advice from WP:RELIST: Relisting debates repeatedly in the hope of getting sufficient participation is not recommended, and while having a deletion notice on a page is not harmful, its presence over several weeks can become disheartening for its editors. Therefore, in general, debates should not be relisted more than twice. Users relisting a debate for a third (or further) time, or relisting a debate with a substantial number of commenters, should write a short explanation either within the ((relist)) template, or in addition to it, on why they did not consider the debate sufficient. I would also really like to reiterate that clerking discussion areas should really only be done by experienced users. You've only recently reengaged with RfD, and the volume of complaint about your actions illustrates that you do not have a good enough grasp on how it works to be performing administrative tasks. At this point, I'd recommend you stop clerking RfD until you have more experience there. Thanks, -- Tavix (talk) 00:31, 13 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Tavix: I don't want to cause any more drama, so I'll heed your request and stop clerking at RfD. But it seems to me there is already a de facto consensus for discussion periods that are much longer than 14 days, in the form of people simply ignoring open RfDs for extended periods of time after they could make a close. Taking a look at a handful of recent discussions that I have not relisted, I see Opposition to trade unions (27 days and going), Filipino Traditional Food:Bagoong (33 days and going, Persian Sea (28 days and going), COVID-19 Hospital (50 days and still going!), and Gaza genocide (29 days and going). Jumping back a couple of months and looking over just the last week of March, I see a similar trend: 1234567890 (57 days), Cylindricity (31 days), Central Temple (26 days), Australasian relations (45 days), Capital equipment (40 days), ISO 3166-1 N3 Multiuse regional user templates (28 days), Elexa (30 days), WebView (45 days), and Big sad (28 days). That's more than one discussion per day that runs the equivalent of at least three relists. So honestly, I don't see how what I've been doing is substantially different than the way things are already done here, except that I've been making an effort to keep the old logs somewhat tidier. Compassionate727 (T·C) 15:58, 15 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Most of the time, discussions that are in the old logs are ready to be closed, they are just awaiting a closer. If you're relisting, that signals that more discussion is warranted (perhaps due to ongoing discussion, a late suggestion, or few participants so far but are deadlocked) and they are much less likely to be closed for at least another week. There is a big difference between the two, and from your examples it seems you may be conflating them. A lot of the examples you've mentioned are discussions where the active closers have participated so someone else needs to come by and close, so perhaps its time to list some of them at WP:CR. I do appreciate the research though, it does show you are (re)gaining an understanding of the forum. -- Tavix (talk) 16:23, 15 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Queer platonic RfD

Hi Compassionate727, would you consider reopening Wikipedia:Redirects for discussion/Log/2021 May 17#Queer platonic? Participants spoke to a need to have some explanation of the phrase to support the redirects, which I agree with. After your close, I sought out to add something, but I can't see it passing WP:NEO at this point, with most sources I could find being user-generated and unsuitable for citations. I could restore the unreferenced, one-sentence stub and send to AfD, but that seems overly bureaucratic. The status quo is detrimental to readers since the redirects suggest we have content that we don't. As a frequent RfD closer myself, I will usually leave such discussions open until the mention can be added somewhere, even if there's clear consensus not to delete. --BDD (talk) 18:27, 24 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@BDD:  Done Compassionate727 (T·C) 20:15, 24 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Administrators' newsletter – July 2021

News and updates for administrators from the past month (June 2021).

Guideline and policy news

  • Consensus has been reached to delete all books in the book namespace. There was rough consensus that the deleted books should still be available on request at WP:REFUND even after the namespace is removed.
  • An RfC is open to discuss the next steps following a trial which automatically applied pending changes to TFAs.

Technical news

  • IP addresses of unregistered users are to be hidden from everyone. There is a rough draft of how IP addresses may be shown to users who need to see them. This currently details allowing administrators, checkusers, stewards and those with a new usergroup to view the full IP address of unregistered users. Editors with at least 500 edits and an account over a year old will be able to see all but the end of the IP address in the proposal. The ability to see the IP addresses hidden behind the mask would be dependent on agreeing to not share the parts of the IP address they can see with those who do not have access to the same information. Accessing part of or the full IP address of a masked editor would also be logged. Comments on the draft are being welcomed at the talk page.

New Page Patrol newsletter September 2021

Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg
New Page Review queue September 2021
New Page Review queue September 2021

Hello Compassionate727,

Please join this discussion - there is increase in the abuse of Wikipedia and its processes by POV pushers, Paid Editors, and by holders of various user rights including Autopatrolled. Even our review systems themselves at AfC and NPR have been infiltrated. The good news is that detection is improving, but the downside is that it creates the need for a huge clean up - which of course adds to backlogs.

Copyright violations are also a serious issue. Most non-regular contributors do not understand why, and most of our Reviewers are not experts on copyright law - and can't be expected to be, but there is excellent, easy-to-follow advice on COPYVIO detection here.

At the time of the last newsletter (#25, December 2020) the backlog was only just over 2,000 articles. New Page Review is an official system. It's the only firewall against the inclusion of new, improper pages.

There are currently 706 New Page Reviewers plus a further 1,080 admins, but as much as nearly 90% of the patrolling is still being done by around only the 20 or so most regular patrollers.

If you are no longer very active on Wikipedia or you no longer wish to be part of the New Page Reviewer user group, please consider asking any admin to remove you from the list. This will enable NPP to have a better overview of its performance and what improvements need to be made to the process or its software.

New page reviewer of the year cup.svg

Various awards are due to be allocated by the end of the year and barnstars are overdue. If you would like to manage this, please let us know. Indeed, if you are interested in coordinating NPR, it does not involve much time and the tasks are described here.

Guild of Copy Editors September 2021 Newsletter
Writing Magnifying.PNG

Copyeditors progress.png

Hello and welcome to the September GOCE newsletter, a brief update of Guild activities since June 2021.

                 Current and upcoming events

September Drive: Our current backlog-elimination drive is open until 23:59 on 30 September (UTC) and is open to all copy editors. Sign up today!

Drive and Blitz reports

June Blitz: From 20 to 26 June, 6 participating editors claimed 16 copy edits, focusing on requests and articles tagged in March and April. Final results, including barnstars awarded, are available here.

July Drive: Almost 575,000 words of articles were copy edited for this event. Of the 24 people who signed up, 18 copyedited at least one article. Final results and awards are listed here.

August Blitz: From 15 to 21 August, we copy edited articles tagged in April and May 2021 and requests. 9 participating editors completed 17 copy edits on the blitz. Final results, including barnstars awarded, are available here.

Other news

June election: Jonesey95 was chosen to continue as lead coordinator, assisted by Dhtwiki, Tenryuu, and Miniapolis.

New maintenance template added to our project scope: After a short discussion in June, we added ((cleanup tense)) to the list of maintenance templates that adds articles to the Guild's copy editing backlog categories. This change added 198 articles, spread over 97 months of backlog, to our queue. We processed all of those articles except for those from the three or four most recent months during the July backlog elimination drive (Here's a link to a "tense" discussion during the drive).

Progress report: As of 18:26, 24 September 2021 (UTC), GOCE copyeditors have processed 468 requests since 1 January and there were 60 requests awaiting completion on the Requests page. The backlog of articles tagged for copy-editing stood at 433 (see monthly progress graph above).

Thank you all again for your participation; we wouldn't be able to achieve what we have without you! Cheers from your GOCE coordinators Jonesey95, Dhtwiki, Tenryuu, and Miniapolis.

December 2021 GOCE Newsletter

Guild of Copy Editors December 2021 Newsletter
Writing Magnifying.PNG

Copyeditors progress.png

Hello and welcome to the December GOCE newsletter, a brief update of Guild activities since September 2021.

                 Current and upcoming events

Election time: Our end-of-year election of coordinators opened for nominations on 1 December and will close on 15 December at 23:59 (UTC). Voting opens at 00:01 the following day and will continue until 31 December at 23:59, just before "Auld Lang Syne". Coordinators normally serve a six-month term and are elected on an approval basis. Self-nominations are welcome. If you've thought of helping out at the Guild, or know of another editor who would make a good coordinator, please consider standing for election or nominating them here.

December Blitz: We have scheduled a week-long copy-editing blitz for 12 to 18 December. Sign up now!

Drive and Blitz reports

September Drive: Almost 400,000 words of articles were copy edited for this event. Of the 27 people who signed up, 21 copyedited at least one article. Final results and awards are listed here.

October Blitz: From 17 to 23 October, we copy edited articles tagged in May and June 2021 and requests. 8 participating editors completed 26 copy edits on the blitz. Final results, including barnstars awarded, are available here.

November Drive: Over 350,000 words of articles were copy edited for this event. Of the 21 people who signed up, 14 copyedited at least one article. Final results and awards are listed here.

Other news

It is with great sadness that we report the death on 19 November of Twofingered Typist, who was active with the Guild almost daily for the past several years. His contributions long exceeded the thresholds for the Guild's highest awards, and he had a hand in innumerable good and featured article promotions as a willing collaborator. Twofingered Typist also served as a Guild coordinator from July 2019 to June 2021. He is sorely missed by the Wikipedia community.

Progress report: As of 30 November, GOCE copyeditors have completed 619 requests in 2021 and there were 51 requests awaiting completion on the Requests page. The backlog stood at 946 articles tagged for copy-editing (see monthly progress graph above).

Thank you all again for your participation; we wouldn't be able to achieve what we have without you! Cheers from your GOCE coordinators Jonesey95, Dhtwiki, Tenryuu, and Miniapolis.

Most Linguists etc

I suppose it's academic as the article has been moved, but I would challenge you on the below.

Most linguists are pretty apathetic about what constitutes "correct" usage. Languages develop over time according to how they are actually used, rather than any set rules, and linguists are professionally interested in describing this rather than making judgments about what should be. My own take is that repurposing "Burkina Faso" as an adjective for the same noun is an entirely natural and expected development, seeing as the name itself consists of two words (a noun and an adjective) and both are from West African languages, meaning your average English speaker isn't going to have a clue how to derive an adjective from that name. But mostly I just think it's foolish to argue about this, because there will be redirects covering all the possibilities that the article doesn't sit at and everyone is going to be able to get where they need to. —Compassionate727 (T·C) 18:44, 30 January 2022 (UTC)

The major issue is that you speak for "most linguists". Who appointed you? Did you speak to 51% of them and confirm they are pretty apathetic? Even if you did it would be original research. Next, is your take on it relevant? Next, I wasn't arguing about it, I made a comment. Lastly, and I intimated it before, Wikipedia is run by majority rule. It is not always right. Genesis, like it or loathe it, IS a rock band, despite what Wikipedia mob rule has dictated. 2A02:C7F:769F:1700:207C:6B6F:9A24:FCB4 (talk) 21:06, 31 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Administrators%27_noticeboard/Incidents#British_Democratic_Party_(2013)

Hello Compassionate727,

I am completely new to wiki editing and am finding it very confusing. I made the user name BDP22 because I wanted to edit the BDP entry, I had no idea this would bring me in conflict with the rule regarding a conflict of interest.

I made the first edit which I found to have been undone so I made a second edit. Only after the second edit did I see your message explaining the situation.

My second edit was to change the website address to that of the new one and to add the election result of 2019 which can be found here: https://bradford.moderngov.co.uk/mgElectionAreaResults.aspx?XXR=0&ID=558&RPID=17542740

I am sorry for the confusion and not following protocol.

I hope the edits I have done can remain and would ask if I can further edit the website address on the external links section to the new address britishdems.co.uk as I had not changed this.

Regards, BDP22BDP22 (talk) 23:55, 28 February 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@BDP22: No worries and welcome! Regarding the conflicts of interest policy, you only have a conflict of interest if you are in some way affiliated with the BDP. People are not prohibited from editing articles concerning topics with which they have a conflict of interest; we only ask that you disclose your conflict of interest as a courtesy to us and be mindful not to violate our policies on neutrality in articles. (Note that if they are paying you, disclosing that relationship is not optional.) The reason this came up is that sometimes we see employees of an organization create an account under a username connecting them to that organization, and we weren't sure if you might be one of them, so I decided to leave you a welcome message that included a note about that issue. You're not in trouble or anything like that.
I believe your first edit back on the 22nd was reverted because it was viewed as scrubbing the article of relevant information solely because it portrays the BDP in a bad light. Note that on Wikipedia, we believe that content should not be removed solely because some people may find it offensive, and we generally revert such removals quickly. If you believe there are other reasons why that paragraph should be removed, I am happy to discuss them with you. Regarding your most recent edit, note that all Wikipedia content must be cited to reliable sources. You of course linked to one here, so I have added that citation to the article. In the future, you'll want to do so yourself when you add content to make sure nobody reverts it.
Again, welcome to Wikipedia. We are glad to have you here helping us. If you ever have any questions, feel free to ask them here on my talk page or at the Teahouse. Compassionate727 (T·C) 01:04, 1 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Seeking adoption

Hi, I saw on the Adopt-a-user page that you are currently accepting adoptees. So I am looking for an adopter who can help me in understanding all policies and content guidelines and help me in becoming a pro in Wikipedia. Thanks. Jamalahmadpk (talk) 19:48, 10 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Jamalahmadpk: I fear that I currently do not have enough time available to accept new adoptees, as adoption is a somewhat time-consuming process of teaching a new user a wide variety of essentials. I am sorry you were told otherwise, my profile was supposed to be set to not adopting; because the bot is apparently ignoring instructions to not update it, I have removed it. Nevertheless, if you ever have any questions about something or other, feel free to ask me, and I'll respond if I'm available; if not, the Teahouse is another great place to ask questions. Welcome to the project, we're glad to have your help! Compassionate727 (T·C) 16:16, 12 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Thanks for closing the review

Hello, thanks for closing this good article review, and based on your tone of the closure, I just want to let you know that I don't have any bad faith on any of the reviewers. I've tried to addressed these issues, in one instance, I have tried to find sources that criticize the program but to no avail. To be honest, it has been a really stressful experience for me. Anyways, thanks for your elegant the community reassessment closure, and I'll try to tackle all of these problems at the talk page. CactiStaccingCrane (talk) 17:11, 17 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@CactiStaccingCrane: Believe me, I understand the feeling; there are some topics I simply cannot edit because I feel too passionately about them. I don't think you are editing in bad faith, nor do I think you are making that assumption of others. Rather, many of us have topics that we feel so strongly about that we lose sight of the bigger picture, and our desire to improve Wikipedia's coverage of them actually has the opposite effect; when that happens, editors often are blocked from editing in those areas despite the fact that they're sincerely trying. I am concerned that SpaceX's rockets may be one of those topics for you, given the messes you have introduced to the article's sourcing in your attempts to simplify it. Personally, I learned the hard way that when a particular thing on Wikipedia becomes a source of stress, it is usually time to find something else to edit for a little while. You may find when you return to the topic that you have a better perspective on everything, or you may find that it simply isn't worth becoming stressed over. Try not to stress yourself out; Wikipedia usually isn't worth it. Compassionate727 (T·C) 00:29, 18 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Incorrect assessment on the Capture of the Tuapse

Good morning, These international maritime law cases occurred in 1950s while thousands of Taiwanese, Hakka, indigenous people and Chinese refugees were either executed or imprisoned by the Chinese Nationalist Party's martial law ruling, which simply cannot allow a new party, a magazine or any public gathering without permission in advance. Chiang Kai-shek repeatedly overrulled court sentences for more severe penalties on political dissidents, sometimes issued the direct orders: "死刑可也" (Death penalty is good!) - his handwritings have been declassified and displayed in the Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall now. Almost every Taiwanese family has some relatives fallen in the victims of the White Terror (1947-1987). You have been confused between the "Republic of China" and Taiwan, the "Chinese Nationalist Party" (KMT) and Taiwanese democracy movement, the source of zh-CN (Simplified Chinese, China), zh-TW (Traditional Chinese, Taiwan), zh-HK (Cantonese, Hong Kong), and the timing gaps among 1954, 1987 and 2022.

The facts of detaining, torturing and killing some British, European or any other country' subjects were not a concern in the mind of dictator and that foreign regime (fleeing from China to Taiwan) to gather resources for his returning war of Chinese Re-unification, which went too far beyond the CIA's original strategic plan requiring the release of the ship crew. It is the reason why Prime Minister Churchill advocated removing the KMT to mandate Taiwan to United Nations Trusteeship Council, and why President Eisenhower continuously demanded Chang release these ships' crew. Power is a conceit revealing our limitations, while a real man shall remain accountable to the end beyond the extent of his power.

This article is only half completed, and there are more historical data pending to be compiled into the Wikipedian format. I don't have much time to spare for the English Wiki, due to the daily schedule as a full-time worker in real life, therefore can only take it slow, nevertheless justice is served in the long run, regardless how time passes. Please feel free to check our work in the Taiwanese Wiki to observe the full picture; better yet, welcome to visit Taiwan in person, and talk with the real Taiwanese by yourself, particularly the younger generation, to know how they think, instead of those Chinese Nationalists with the hidden agenda continuing to lie for another 75 years...... Thanks for your attention, and have a great day. Mickie-Mickie (talk) 00:38, 28 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]

It's not clear to me what evidence you want copied over; I see an accusation of stonewalling, but no diffs or anything like that supporting the accusation.

Just a quick comment on this; this user appears to be a sock of another IP user at the very least.
