Hi, I just reverted this to a previous version. Some of your small edits got caught up in this revert. I think I've put them all back. Could you please check? Thanks. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 20:49, 8 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Mental health of Asian Americans

Hi, so I am creating the article on mental health of Asian Americans, I feel strongly that the numbers should actually be there for the hotline. While yes, this is an educational source, this particular article may attract people who are in need of these resources. I therefore think that it is important that they are there. So, I would appreciate it if you would leave them as a part of the article. Thanks so much for your contributions! Neha576 (talk) 02:58, 13 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

I'm not going to keep edit warring with you over this, but I maintain that listings of phone numbers are inappropriate in articles on general principle, and contrary to the purpose of Wikipedia. That aside, language like Calling this number will allow you to reach healthcare providers that can aid with mental health struggles is entirely unencyclopedic; Wikipedia articles should not talk directly to the reader. * Pppery * it has begun... 03:09, 13 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Thanks for your help around the Angela Jacksons

The Original Barnstar
You have been lovely in helping me clean up the set of pages I was adding to today. My work was a bit messy, and you made it better. Thank you! Oughtta Be Otters (talk) 05:51, 16 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Pppery:, I do have a follow-on question, though, and since you have been in the weeds with me I'm going to ask you: So, Angela Jackson is a writer, and Angela Jackson (writer) is a writer, so I feel like the parenthetical notes are confusing. Like they should be Angela Jackson (poet) and Angela Jackson (historian). Now, I am getting started drafting Angela Jackson (she is a male basketball coach) and. there appears to maybe be a collegiate player at Texas, Angela Jackson, who died recently but was quite notable during her forshortened career. So: I understand not building for future pages, but I am about to start these pages. May I ask you to advise me on how to create clarity among them with page titles if one-word summaries are insufficient? Thank you Oughtta Be Otters (talk) 16:25, 16 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Agreed, that's a mess. The first question to ask is which person (if any) is the primary topic for "Angela Jackson". Whoever is the primary topic belongs at Angela Jackson with no parenthetical, and the disambiguation page belongs there if there is no primary topic. Assuming no one's the primary topic, the best disambiguation for the two writers is either your suggestion or Angela Jackson (American writer) vs. Angela Jackson (British writer). For the basketball players, WP:NCBASKETBALL says to disambiguate by birth year ("Angela Jackson (basketball, born YYYY)"), but the problem is that the current article does not state the birth year, and nor did any of the sources I checked. So, I have no idea what to do. * Pppery * it has begun... 16:35, 16 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Pppery: Thanks -- learned some stuff from your response and also agree that the information is a bit thin on the ground ins some parts. Maybe the others will have a birthyear and then I can clarify at least a bit. Appreciative of your sharing of knowledge. Oughtta Be Otters (talk) 20:22, 17 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

undo changes for Nextcloud

Hi Pppery,

I noticed you undo changes made by me along with some old text existed before.

https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Nextcloud&diff=prev&oldid=1125422186

Could you please explain what is wrong with chapters regarding Nextcloud AIO and Nextcloud VM? For me it sounds inconsistent to mention Nextcloud Box introduced 2016 (which is discontinued now) but not refer to current existing implementations? https://nextcloud.com/devices/

For FOSS software referring to the Github repository sounds useful for me as well.

As I consider Nextcloud is very important software suite I'm willing to improve this article further - let me know which areas you feel could be improved? Wwe226 (talk) 09:03, 5 December 2022 (UTC)[reply]

The problem is the lack of secondary sources. * Pppery * it has begun... 14:02, 5 December 2022 (UTC)[reply]
thank you for the answer. Both mentioned chapters could are tightly related to the main project I was under impression URL pointing to the Github repository with docs, source code and bug tracker should be enough. Similar articles e.g. Microsoft 365 list parts of the software like outlook.com without any citation as well. Wwe226 (talk) 19:45, 5 December 2022 (UTC)[reply]
The key distinugishing feature there is that the things being listed have their own articles, which include relevant secondary sources. Remember that the purpose of Wikipedia is to provide an encyclopedic discussion of the software, not a manual for it as some of your edits come close to doing. * Pppery * it has begun... 20:00, 5 December 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I definitely didn't intend a manual - enough exist on the internet - my intention was to describe different architectures supported by system. Maybe wording is not ideal but I assume such list is very useful to describe the software to a reader. Maybe you can refer me to a good example? Wwe226 (talk) 21:05, 5 December 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Why should Wikipedia care about discussing those features if secondary sources don't? I feel that the content I didn't remove provides a good enough description of the software. Maybe you can refer me to a good example - see Wikipedia:Good articles/Engineering and technology#Software and Wikipedia:Featured articles#Computing for some of Wikipedia's highest-quality articles on software as assessed by the community. * Pppery * it has begun... 02:09, 6 December 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I spend time reviewing multiple "good articles" and lot of them have even worse ratio of secondary resources. e.g. Windows Server 2012 41 of 74 citations are from Microsoft as vendor, Windows_Speech_Recognition 39 of 64 citations are from Microsoft as vendor (maybe more as lot of are "archived"). The Nextcloud article has far more external references. The fact there is no citation doesn't mean there is no external source - it just means it was not provided. Now the article is very short compared to the huge functionality and importance of the software being may be the last free collaboration software competing with hyperscalers like Google and Microsoft and it makes it really hard to provide good value if somebody silently removes important fact just due to feeling it's not important..

Talk page archives

At least such talk page message is no longer being read (and for other users needing it, they are still in page history). Nevertheless, the banned banner should be displayed prominently in the talk page so that others will know when viewing it (and also the template will add an opt-out from mass message category).

DHCP Software

Hi Pppery, You recently removed the Jagornet DHCP server from this wikipedia page - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_DHCP_server_software. Your comment indicates "notable entries only". While the other servers that you removed are indeed no longer notable or active, the Jagornet DHCP server is a notable implementation. It has a complete feature set, including support for DHCPv4 and DHCPv6, and has been actively maintained for over 13 years. A quick look at GitHub shows that the ISC DHCP server has 67 stars, Kea DHCP has 298, and Jagornet DHCP has 88 stars. While I understand that GitHub stars is just one measurement of the relevance of software, there have been thousands of downloads as well. Jagornet also includes features such as a REST API and Docker images which it make it interoperable with modern software stacks and tools. For these reasons, I would like to respectfully request that Jagornet DHCP be added back to this page. Agrabil (talk) 00:11, 13 December 2022 (UTC)[reply]

"Notable" means "has a Wikipedia article", not my own subjective assessment of its importance. Jagornet DHCP has been explicitly judged not notable by that definition. I decline. * Pppery * it has begun... 00:12, 13 December 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Anthony Azekwoh

Hi @Pppery you marked Anthony Azekwoh for speedy deletion? This article is a new article different from what was created last year December 2021. Instead of deleting the article what not approve and work on it or allow other editors to work on it or atleast highlight what the problem is so correction can be effected.

I restored the entries and added HTTPS status in Comparison_of_web_search_engines#Digital_rights which is actually useful. --Bawanio (talk) 03:53, 22 December 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Orphaned talk subpage

Hello, Pppery,

MediaWiki talk:Abusefilter-degrouped/sandbox showed up on a database report for orphaned talk subpages even though it seems like MediaWiki:Abusefilter-degrouped/sandbox exists and therefore it isn't orphaned. We typically delete orphaned talk pages and talk subpages unless they are actively being kept for archived article talk pages so I'm not sure about a MediaWiki sandbox talk page and whether or not there is any feasible way that this page could have a use. What do you think? Thanks! Liz Read! Talk! 22:28, 26 December 2022 (UTC)[reply]

I have no idea why I specifically was asked this, but I'll answer anyway: for inherently protected namespaces like the MediaWiki namespace, the general convention is to put user-editable pages like /sandbox in the talk namespace (i.e MediaWiki talk:Watchlist-messages/doc). So this isn't an orphaned talk page and shouldn't be deleted for that reason. It is, on the other hand, clearly useless for reasons roughly similar to Wikipedia:Miscellany for deletion/MediaWiki:Abusefilter-blocked, so would support deleting the page at MfD. * Pppery * it has begun... 22:33, 26 December 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I asked you, dear * Pppery *, because you always seem to have all of the answers like you did again. I clearly came to the right person! Thank you for giving me your opinion on this page. I know nothing about MediaWiki pages or even what they are used for so this is all new information to me. Thanks again! Happy holidays! Liz Read! Talk! 02:58, 27 December 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Patchwork Heroes

Hello, thank you for helping with Patchwork Heroes. Most of my work on the page consisted of translating the existing Japanese article (along with looking up references to support notability), and I understand the Japanese Wiki has much different standards. However, I followed the link you cited and saw this: If the soundtrack has been released on a widely distributed physical medium, it can be acceptable to include an infobox for the soundtrack alongside discussion in the "Development" section (for example, see Journey (2012 video game)); non-free cover art must meet the WP:Non-free content guidelines to be included in this infobox.

As third party news did report on the soundtrack CD (a widely distributed physical medium), I will be reinstating this information (along with the citation) under the infobox rather than under its own section as it had been. Thank you again, and best wishes for the upcoming new year.Londonbeat41692 (talk) 03:45, 29 December 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Birdhaur

Hey just curious, why did you mark this article as unpatrolled? ♠PMC(talk) 23:07, 9 January 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Because newly-undeleted articles are supposed to be unpatrolled but aren't due to T315591, so I've been manually adding them back to the queue. * Pppery * it has begun... 23:09, 9 January 2023 (UTC)[reply]
Ah, I see. But shouldn't it be patrolled since I have AP? ♠PMC(talk) 23:23, 9 January 2023 (UTC)[reply]
The software implementation of unpatrol-on-undelete, during the brief time it worked, deliberately ignored autopatrolled so I'm doing the same. Related discussions at the bottom of User:Oshwah/TalkPageArchives/2022-07#History merge mistake? and at Wikipedia talk:New pages patrol/Reviewers/Archive 44#Article patrol status after refund/undelete.
While in the specific case of an autopatrolled admin doing their own undelete it would arguably be safe to not do a procedural unpatrol (no other combination of attributes works; if an admin undeletes a PROD at the request at the request of someone else then their autopatrolled status is inapplicable since they didn't review the merits of the article, likewise for an admin undeleting a PROD at the request of an autopatrolled non-admin), I find it neater to just unpatrol everything undeleted (except for history merges), and it's only one article every few days so doesn't add much to the queue. * Pppery * it has begun... 23:35, 9 January 2023 (UTC)[reply]
Gotcha, thanks for taking the time to explain. I'd just never had it happen before and I wondered if it was a technical thing or on the article's merits. Cheers! ♠PMC(talk) 23:46, 9 January 2023 (UTC)[reply]

The reason/rationale parameters

Hi! I noticed this edit. That happens to me too: whenever I manually do a CSD, prod, RM, or one of the various XfDs, I never seem to know whether the particular template uses |reason=, or |rationale=, or |text=, or something else entirely. It's annoying to go by trial and error or to have to look up the template's documentation each time. I really wish these templates were consistent, so that the same set of parameter aliases could work across all of them. – Uanfala (talk) 12:55, 17 January 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Of course, inconsistencies like that happen with independently-developed code. That edit followed a AWB run that tagged ~20 obsolete categories for speedy deletion using |reason=, and I figured it was easier to fix the template than fix all of them. So I did so. * Pppery * it has begun... 23:21, 17 January 2023 (UTC)[reply]

CAS (formerly Chemical Abstracts Service) page

Related to the Chemical Abstracts Service page that you just moved, I moved to CAS (formerly Chemical Abstracts Service). The issue here is that CAS is not a mere acronym for the company. The company has rebranded to simply "CAS". Since however there is already a CAS disambiguation article page, I moved to this new page CAS (formerly Chemical Abstracts Service). If you have an alternate suggestion on how to proceed please let me know. However, keeping the article as Chemical Abstracts Service is no longer correct since the company has rebranded and only goes by CAS. Brandopedia (talk) 19:14, 7 February 2023 (UTC)[reply]

History repeats itself: a different company did the exact same thing, of rebranding from a full name to an acronym, over at Talk:Archaeological Services Inc., and yet Wikipedia's requested move process decided that the article should still be titled at the full name because people such as Necrothesp claimed that the abbreviation is just branding (see also WP:NAMECHANGES). I didn't see a meaningful distinction between that case and yours, so reverted the move.
At the very least, "CAS (formerly Chemical Abstracts Service)" is contrary to Wikipedia's title disambiguation format, but I'm unfortunately not coming up with any better ideas for names given the wide variety of companies called "CAS". * Pppery * it has begun... 23:04, 7 February 2023 (UTC)[reply]
This is just not how we title articles on Wikipedia. An organisation's name and its branding are very often not the same thing. The current title is the best one. Using an abbreviation as the title and then stating what it stands for as a disambiguator is utterly pointless. -- Necrothesp (talk) 09:05, 8 February 2023 (UTC)[reply]

User talk page notifications

Hello, Pppery,

I'd like to ask you to consider using Twinkle when you tag pages for deletion. Looking over your recent PRODs, not all article creators were given deletion notifications (none for The Coordinating Secretariat for Science, Technology and Innovation (COSTI) for example). FastilyBot sometimes posts notices when editors forget to notify article creators but I've noticed that it doesn't do this 100% of the time. I'm not sure why it posts talk page notices for some PRODs but not all, but it just doesn't.

However, if you set up your Twinkle Preferences to "Notify page creator", then whenever you use Twinkle to tag a page for a CSD, PROD, or XfD, then Twinkle will post these notices on your behalf so you don't have to remember to. Notification isn't mandatory but it is best practices and a common courtesy to your fellow editors. I'm sure if a page you created was going to be deleted, you'd want to know about it in case it was a mistaken tagging. Thank you for considering this request and for all you do on the project (which is a lot!). Liz Read! Talk! 03:48, 19 February 2023 (UTC)[reply]

This is deliberate. I don't notify users who have been inactive for years when I PROD an article they created. The creator of The Coordinating Secretariat for Science, Technology and Innovation (COSTI) appears to have made no edits since 2013. If I ever stopped editing Wikipedia for a decade, I would almost certainly have long-since stopped caring about the fate of the pages I created. Repeatedly posting on my talk page about it is not going to convince me to change by behavior here absent a clear consensus to make notifiying even long-gone users required. * Pppery * it has begun... 04:15, 19 February 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Not really my area of interest, but from a quick glance a merge does seem reasonable. Oh, and you may be interested in User:SDZeroBot/Category cycles - circular categorization is more common that you would think. * Pppery * it has begun... 00:30, 14 March 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Page mover

Would you complain if I gave you the page mover right? You certainly have ample experience with titling policies/guidelines, and you've made enough RM/TR requests over the years that I'm sure it'd come in useful. Extraordinary Writ (talk) 23:37, 17 March 2023 (UTC)[reply]
