Note

Hey YellowFrogger! I see you've welcomed a nice batch of new users. While we all appreciate the effort to do so, it is generally discouraged to welcome every single user that logs into Meta. Generally, it is ok to welcome a user after they make a few contributions (excluding wiki requests). If they do make a few contributions to Meta then it's ok to welcome them. Thanks!

October 2021

Hello,

Your archiving of SN has been rolled back as some of the content you removed was not eligble for being archived. ~ RhinosF1 - (chat)· acc· c - (on) 07:34, 20 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Where are the eligibility requirements listed, for reference? --Raidarr (talk) 11:28, 20 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Raidarr: Go into the source editor and look at the top of the page. At the top, there are certain parameters set that Revibot would normally follow and whatever is laid out there I would say are the requirements for archiving threads. Agent Isai Talk to me! 12:48, 20 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
What Agent said :), certainly not archiving threads still open for active discussions. ~ RhinosF1 - (chat)· acc· c - (on) 13:52, 20 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Patroller granted - 2021-11-1

Hi, YellowFrogger. An administrator on Meta has granted you the patroller user group permission, which gives you the ability to patrol recent changes and new pages of other Miraheze users (both registered and anonymous) who are not either autopatrolled or an administrator. In addition, this group also means that your edits are autopatrolled, so other patrollers or administrators don't have to patrol your edits. You should also be aware that the granting of this user group is at the discretion of Meta administrators, so different administrators will have slightly different criteria for granting. Likewise, just as it is a discretionary appointment, revocation is also at the discretion of Meta administrators and, again, each will have their own criteria for revocation.

In the medium-term, plans are in the works to develop a Meta Patrollers School, likely led by one or two active administrators, that will provide a comprehensive set of guidelines for patrollers and answers to commonly asked questions.

Nevertheless, the following are some of the main guidelines for patrolling. If you follow these guidelines completely, it is unlikely your patroller user group should ever be revoked. In technical terms, even when you find content that requires deletion by an administrator or otherwise requires remediation, undoing, reverting, or rolling back (if you are also a rollbacker, of course), you should always first mark as patrolled any revisions regardless of whether that content is destined to remain extant to the page or even on Meta entirely.

  1. When patrolling talk pages, user talk pages, and noticeboards (in Main and Meta namespaces), you should first check to see whether the user properly signed their posts using four tildes (~~~~). If they have not, you should add {{unsigned}} by substitution ({{subst:Unsigned|username|00:01, 31 August 2020 (UTC)}}), where username is the user's username or IP address and the timestamp is the full timestamp from the diff page. As a best practice, you should also link to the diff in your edit summary, so other administrators and patrollers can easily tie your modification to the original edit being modified. To speed up this process, you can copy the diff-permalink user script from line 5 of this page into either your (a) common.js or (b) global.js page (the latter applying globally on all Miraheze wikis);
  2. When patrolling the noticeboards, ask yourself whether this topic is on the correct noticeboard. If it is not, you should move it to the correct noticeboard, by either undoing the edit or manually removing the topic (if there have been intervening edits), again linking to the original noticeboard of the topic and the new noticeboard where it was moved in your edit summary. On the new noticeboard, you would simply paste in the topic (including the section header), linking to the diff page as in the first step. An example edit summary might be Moved [[Special:Diff/######|this discussion]] from [[Stewards' noticeboard]] to [[Community noticeboard|here]], where ###### represents the numeric revision ID of the originally posted topic;
  3. Also when patrolling the noticeboards and talk pages (including user talk pages), as a best practice, take care to kindly fix any formatting mistakes (such as excess line breaks or incorrect wiki code), per WP:LISTGAP;
  4. If something requires deletion, you can add {{delete}} to the top of the page in question, taking care to follow the instructions on that template page;
  5. If you come across a user who repeatedly makes the same mistakes, send them a guidance note on their user talk page, informing of the steps need to edit and post constructively on Meta; and, finally,
  6. If in doubt whether something requires remediation or not, patrol it, and then ask any administrator via their user talk page or at Meta:Administrators' noticeboard if any further action needs to be taken.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out. Thank you! --Dmehus (talk) 03:07, 1 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

How did you send wikilove messages?

You sent 2 wikilove messages in my talk page, how do I send those?

Just asking :) Anpang Talk 05:02, 8 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Anpang It should be automatically available on any User talk page of a user. You just click on the the little heart icon (next to "view history"). Dmehus (talk) 05:23, 8 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Oh ok, thank you! Anpang Talk 05:54, 8 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
No problem. It's part of the WikiLove extension, which you can also enable on your wiki, if you so choose. Dmehus (talk) 06:01, 8 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Anpang: You should specifically click on this heart: Heart icon.svg YellowFrogger (Talk Edits) 05:31, 8 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Special:Diff/210615

Will you please describe the above diff. I wonder on what basis did you made that edit. Magogre (talk) 03:56, 9 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Magogre: I went to edit because he hadn't signed it, however, all of a sudden, I saw "Unsigned comment". As I thought it was generated automatically, I replaced it with his signature. Sorry for any upheaval. YellowFrogger (Talk Edits) 04:02, 9 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks for the quick response. The edit did not created any problems. But it is always recommended that you use {{Unsigned}} to sign the unsigned comments by others and check history to know if the unsigned comment is already signed by anyone. There is no automated process to sign that comments other than using bots. If the signature looks like — Preceding unsigned comment added by..., you don't have to do anything as it is already signed on the commentator's behalf. Magogre (talk) 04:15, 9 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Whoops forgot to sign that lol Anpang Talk 02:38, 11 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Infoboxes

Hi there YellowFrogger. I appreciate your keen interest in helping revamp the page. I would like to inform you that I've been working on a draft of the page which focuses away from Wikipedia infoboxes which are generally discouraged and focuses on other alternatives. As such, I just wanted to inform you to prevent an edit conflict once I do publish the draft. Thanks. Agent Isai Talk to me! 04:02, 26 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Huuum. However I didn't understand half of your comment. Are you also making changes to the page? However, on this page, we still have a lot of time and I will edit it again only tomorrow. Good luck YellowFrogger (Talk Edits) 04:15, 26 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Quick deletion of Template:Construction

Ambox deletion.png
The page you wrote, Template:Construction, has been selected for quick deletion. If you think this page should be kept, please add {{wait}} below the line {{QD}} and say why on the talk page. If the page is already gone, but you think this was an error, you can ask for it to be undeleted. You can find more information about the reason here. --Magogre (talk) 04:31, 26 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Magogre: The page became a redirect to Template:Under construction YellowFrogger (Talk Edits) 04:37, 26 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
YellowFrogger I concur with Magogre's nominating the unnecessary redirect for deletion, as it's an unused redirect following a move to a better name. However, Magogre, if I could make a small request of you when patrolling using Twinkle, and that's to uncheck the box to notify the creating user. In my view, it adds unnecessary automated talk page clutter. If the user wishes to have a deleted page or template restored, or otherwise have the deleted page's wikitext e-mailed to them, they should know where Meta:Administrators' noticeboard is. Dmehus (talk) 04:43, 26 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Dmehus: He didn't mark the redirect for deletion, but a previous page, which became the current one (redirect). In my opinion, not everyone chooses to put "Under" in words and takes the easy way out. YellowFrogger (Talk Edits) 04:50, 26 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
YellowFrogger, he nominated the redirect for deletion. That's a consideration, but on the other hand, it's only six characters. I don't see it particular problematic to transclude {{under construction}}>. Dmehus (talk) 04:52, 26 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Dmehus: I saw the page with no deletion notice before it was deleted. He even hit the Thanks button for my editing. I don't believe he put it on again. YellowFrogger (Talk Edits) 05:06, 26 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Requesting oversight

Hi YellowFrogger,

Though Agent Isai and I pointed this out elsewhere, I wanted to provide you this note via your user talk page. I know you prefer on-wiki communication for all your requests; however, requesting oversight is not something that should be done on-wiki. So, your options include sending an e-mail to stewards(at)miraheze.org, stating the reason and wiki where oversight is requested. Alternatively, if you are on Discord or IRC, you can direct message any voiced Steward user privately stating the same.

Thanks,
Dmehus (talk) 01:38, 29 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Revocation of patroller

I wanted to leave a message to add to my reasoning in the user right logs.

Until, behavior and the concerns noted in the user right log, and what myself, NDKilla and Raidarr have said on discord is addressed. Patroller will not be reinstated. You clearly are refusing to hear what experienced users on this wiki farm are telling you. Accepting community consensus even if you disagree is the most basic requirement for a wiki, and even more so if you ever want to hold additional user rights.

@Zppix: Do you want my private conversation on Discord between me and NDKila? the issue has been resolved and you won't see any problems giving my patroller rights back. He accepted my apology, only you are left. YellowFrogger (Talk Edits) 04:05, 7 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I do see a problem giving them back… this reply is exactly my point. Zppix (Meta | talk to me) 04:20, 7 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]
