I have granted you new powers due to your obvious and present need for them. With rollback, you can revert vandalism in a single click. With autopatroller, all pages you create will no longer need to be reviewed by an admin. Use these tools wisely! –MJLTauk 05:07, 3 September 2020 (UTC)[Replie]

Just an idea...[eedit soorce]

Hi CiphriusKane, I really like your list of Scottish topics. If you're looking for suggestions, how about indigenous plants and animals, indigenous races and breeds (kettle, sheep, goats, dogs?), indigenous fruit varieties (apples, maybe?), produce and derived products (cheese?). Also, separate lists of animals, plants etc. would be interesting and maybe even useful for the upcoming edit-a-thon. Just an idea I had when I saw your list. --Andreas (tauk) 18:41, 24 September 2020 (UTC)[Replie]

@Andreas: Aye, I'd thought to add a "Nature" section at some point. I'm also happy with adding sublists if it's deemed necessary/neater. All are free to edit the list as necessary (should put that at the top of the page come to think of it) CiphriusKane (tauk) 19:18, 24 September 2020 (UTC)[Replie]
Glad you don't hate the idea. I was gonna say the "sublists" can go straight into the article namespace but then I checked and found this. Maybe somebody could turn this into something more useful (for reading folks), along the lines of that (Alemannic) or that (Scottish Gaelic) or even that (Romansh). I would offer a hand but I don't speak ae wird o Scots. --Andreas (tauk) 20:24, 24 September 2020 (UTC)[Replie]
@Andreas: Hmm, I could add a "See forby/Main" on my list for that type of list, but the list I'm making is meant to include specific articles closely associated with Scotland to focus on. Like if there was a list of birds, I'd probably only be listing the golden eagle and osprey (Scotland has a sizeable European golden eagle population I believe, and there's a famous osprey who bred in Scotland until 2014). That said, if ye've any thoughts on flora and fauna that match that criteria go ahead and add them (or list them here if ye're unsure) CiphriusKane (tauk) 21:10, 24 September 2020 (UTC)[Replie]
Sure, I get the idea of your list. I was just commenting on the "sublist" thing ;D Maybe the shochads of Caithness are worth mentioning? They kept cropping up in quick google.
By the way, did ye ken that several other small and mid-size Wikipedias keep similar lists and cross-link them via d:Q12950581? Maybe you want to add yours once it reaches your (first) goal of 100 topics. --Andreas (tauk) 21:40, 24 September 2020 (UTC)[Replie]
@Andreas: Ah, now I see, sorry for the confusion. I've mentioned the wikidata idea to the others in the Scots Leid server, but it seems like a plan. Ye've given me a few things to think about, so thanks. Also I realised I never addressed the editathon point. The one happening in a few days already has a theme of places, but I can easily add nature to the list of potential themes (if I can find where we stuck the theme list...) CiphriusKane (tauk) 23:37, 24 September 2020 (UTC)[Replie]
Glad I could do something useful. By the way, would you guys mind a lurker in the discord server? ;D --Andreas (tauk) 01:06, 25 September 2020 (UTC) Oh, and may I be curious and ask what dialect of Scots you speak? I noticed you use "ae" for English "of", which I haven't seen before.[Replie]
@Andreas: Sure, all are welcome in the server long as they respect the language and the rules, and it's primarily Doric but I think it's kinda been influenced by Glaswegian a bit by now. Need an invite link for the Discord server? CiphriusKane (tauk) 01:11, 25 September 2020 (UTC)[Replie]

Cleanup[eedit soorce]

Hi, I'm continuing with my cleanup of the misuse of Scots words, and now I'm onto lairge. The way I understand it, "lairge" only refers to large numbers/plentifulness, while "muckle" is about physical size. Am I right? --Корсикэн-Уара (That's how you do fake Cyrillic properly and phonetically) 10:17, 8 Januar 2021 (UTC)[Replie]

@Corsicanwarrah: I believe either or can be used, but muckle/muckler/mucklest is preferred for size, that is correct. If this is about me removing the Fixscots template on eagle, it's because I fixed the Scots back in October CiphriusKane (tauk) 14:29, 8 Januar 2021 (UTC)[Replie]

Sorry about the edits I make[eedit soorce]

Hi, sorry to bother you but I’m sorry for the edits I make in English because I’m an English person. I enjoy writing articles to build the encyclopedia. RedhotRod4 (tauk) 10:44, 16 Januar 2021 (UTC)[Replie]

@RedhotRod4: Hey, in that case I'd encourage ye to make articles in yer personal userspace then ask for them to be translated. If ye're interested in learning to write Scots, we've got a Scots language Discord server where we'd be happy to help. The other issue with the articles is the lack of substance to them. While there is some minor substance to Damageplan, it'd still be good to have more content with references. The Frankenstrat article as it stands could easily be merged with Eddie Van Halen as per our notability policy regarding broad articles before specific articles (thanks for expanding that article by the way. It's a better start but still could do with a bit of polish) CiphriusKane (tauk) 12:15, 16 Januar 2021 (UTC)[Replie]

Leet o warld champion fitba clubs[eedit soorce]

I don't know who made this mess: the page in question has been merged with the page of the FIFA world federation, they are two things that have nothing to do with each other, one is the world federation, the other is the list of world champions clubs released by FIFA, you can correct?--Kanoawi (tauk) 11:44, 23 Januar 2021 (UTC)[Replie]

@Kanoawi: Hey, I was the one who merged the articles. The list was tagged as a violation of our notability policy in relation to article quality (zero context about the list, lack of sufficient sources) and was left untouched for over the stated improvement duration (1 week) so I merged it into FIFA, as it's basically just a list of clubs recognised by FIFA and the FIFA article itself is lacking. The alternate was I delete the list article outright, and we favour merging over deletion where possible. Should the list page be brought up to scratch, then it needn't be merged. Also, saying that the list of clubs recognised by FIFA is unrelated to FIFA seems contradictory CiphriusKane (tauk) 12:04, 23 Januar 2021 (UTC)[Replie]

(in Inglis) January editathon[eedit soorce]

Just a wee reminder that the next scots wiki editathon takes place this weekend, Sat 30 & Sun 31 January. If you'd like help improving your written scots skills, then folks from the Scots Language Centre will be on Zoom on Saturday (15:00-17:00 GMT) and Sunday (12:00-14:00 GMT) to do some collaborative editing, and I'll be around to help with any wiki queries. Feedback last time was that the language support was really helpful (and fun!), and we'd love to see you. We're looking mainly at improving articles to do with politics, particularly articles about politicians.

Frog article[eedit soorce]

Hi — I see you've been involved with the 'Frog' page on the Scots Wikipedia.

Hello,[eedit soorce]

This is Tom, I nopticed that my block has since been removed (I think it was for 3 months, THINK) and I was wondering IF I could contribute A BIT now? I mrean in terms of correcting spellings and small points like that not creating 900 articles an hour I mean so fear not [lol] But yes that was my question. I asked you as I think you were the user who blocked me (as I said I THINK it was you) Signed Tom. (talk) 16:07, 13 Februar 2021 (UTC)[Replie]

Hey Tom, the block was actually only one month which expired a few days ago. The concern I have is that even outside of mass creation of pages, yer Scots ability is still lacking, such as this edit which somehow turned English into incorrect English, let alone into Scots. Probably the best idea is to make suggestions for changes on relevant talk pages so that experienced Scots speakers can make the changes properly. This was one of the proposals on the AN thread which saw support. I'd suggest focusing on proving that existing articles are notable by themselves, rather than on making more genealogy pages.
If ye agree with this, I can inform the AN discussion and get consensus for the deal, with a possible stipulation that ye get an article namespace block to ensure enforcement, along with a single reminder per new IP, to account for yer memory problems and IP changes. This deal will also entail that ye stop maligning other editors, including accusing them of being spiteful.
I get ye want to help which is why I'm nae reblocking ye, but yer actions have had an adverse effect on other editors. If I may borrow yer words, keep in mind that we're human. How does this sound? CiphriusKane (tauk) 05:28, 14 Februar 2021 (UTC)[Replie]
Yo, just saw this. I didn't accuse anyone on scowiki being spieful, that was some of the enwiki users. I can honestky say that everyone I 've encountered on scowiki have/has been lovely to be honest so I can't fault that a all. And ok, that makes sense as in bettering the pages that already exist I agree because as ye said my scots is lacking *blushes* but yes ok thank you for the swift reply too and happy Valentine's Day [lol] signed Tom (talk) 18:08, 14 Februar 2021 (UTC)[Replie]
"that was some of the enwiki users" This is what I mean by maligning other users. Slandering them here is part of the reason why I blocked ye, because it indicates to me that ye think it's fine to disparage them because it was a different wiki. I dinnae care where it happened, or why, or whether or nae they've edited here or even ken this wiki exists, calling other users spiteful is out of line CiphriusKane (tauk) 07:00, 15 Februar 2021 (UTC)[Replie]
It's purely frustration on my part, I'm not excusing it and I totally see your point but it is just sheer frustration and disappointment. Sorry :( (talk) 14:18, 16 Februar 2021 (UTC)[Replie]
Tom, this'll be yer reminder to keep to talk pages rather than editing articles directly. Also, I need ye to explicitly state that ye agree with the terms of the deal before I present it to the AN CiphriusKane (tauk) 17:38, 16 Februar 2021 (UTC)[Replie]

Friedrich, Duke o Mecklenburg-Grabow -> Duke Friedrich o Mecklenburg, Prince o Grabow[eedit soorce]

Hello, would you be able to move the above to the latter at all? I did some research and his title is wrong (my fault entirely having made it in the first place) Prince of/o Grabow was/wis in fact his title/teetle, not/nae Duke o Mecklenburg-Grabow. I also added a reference to his article too. Hope you're well, I must admit I'm quite proud of the addition of a reference to be honest [lol] forever in your debt signed Tom. (talk) 14:15, 16 Februar 2021 (UTC)[Replie]

Nae done - The source ye linked says Duke of Mecklenburg-Grabow. Provide a reliable source saying otherwise or it remains as is CiphriusKane (tauk) 17:38, 16 Februar 2021 (UTC)[Replie]
However, rywiki says Grabow wis an appanage an dewiki says he wis styled *Prince* [o Grabow] plus, ruwiki has his page as *Frederick of Mecklenburg, Prince of Grabowsk(i)* the reference I added wis more to do with where he wis buried (I wis going create a Category:Buirials at the Schelfkirche, Schwerin, in the very distant future, that's all that was for) (talk) 19:45, 17 Februar 2021 (UTC) The main point is he wasn't the Duke of/o *MG but the Prince of/o G.[Replie]
Wikipedia isnae a valid source, and neither of those pages list him as Duke and Prince in the title. The de wiki lists neither. Also, ye've technically broken the terms of the deal I proposed now, only reason I've nae blocked is because the deal wisnae ratified by the community CiphriusKane (tauk) 07:21, 18 Februar 2021 (UTC)[Replie]
Ok, so I have located a source that does mention his title being an appanage BUT it reads prety much exactly the same as dewiki so I'm a bit confused right now. Friedrich , Duke of Mecklenburg [-Schwerin, sometimes wrongly: Friedrich I , called Prince von Grabow (born February 13, 1638 in Schwerin , † April 28, 1688 in Grabow ) was an apanaged prince in Grabow. ] (talk) 18:32, 18 Februar 2021 (UTC) what terms?[Replie]
It's likely a mirror site then, and all this is saying to me is that the page should maybe be called "Freidrich o Mecklenburg" without any titles. As for the terms, scroll up CiphriusKane (tauk) 19:39, 18 Februar 2021 (UTC)[Replie]

Hope all is well on your end, I wanted to ask your permission to create a small page about María Francisca Fernanda Fitz-James Stuart y Stolberg-Gedern (to correspond with the sister article on eswiki) and wanted to ask your permission before jumping the gun and creating it and then going a bit mad and making 10 others then being labelled god only knows what.

Tom, you've got a community block. This means that you will only be allowed to edit if you can convince the community to unblock you, both on here and on enwiki. So no, you're not making any more pages, especially not badly translated genealogy pages. Rightfully I should be blocking this IP as well, but I'm not going to yet, not unless you give me a reason to CiphriusKane (tauk) 20:53, 12 Mey 2021 (UTC)[Replie]
Hello, thank you for giving me the chance to reply too, as I said I have emailed the stewards seeking assistance but don't hold out much hope that anyone will be overly helpful plus I'm not convinced Jimbo will even acknowledge me, plus I'm far to scared to write on his en talkpage for fear of being blocked or generally moaned at. How can I actually get any help from people via email though, it's easy for people to dismiss others via email, I doubt these people would be as dismissive in person but then we'll never know. I honestly don't know what else or whom else to contact (I also contacted an en admin via email and she ignored me, then I found her on Twitter and she blocked me. :| prior to me saying I just need your help I don't want your bank details. Also, I initially started making pages on here to try to make people aware that several pagenames on enwiki are in fact wrong, for example
  1. en wiki : Maria Theresa of Spain vs sco Marie Thérèse o Austrick (She was a Habsburg of Spain, but an Archduchess of Austria, thus Spain is incorrect, even her grave says M T of A in French obviously)
  2. en wiki : Charles of Mecklenburg-Güstrow vs sco Karl, Hereditary Prince o Mecklenburg-Güstrow (heir to the throne and thus styled Hereditary Prince)
  3. en wiki : María Josefa Pimentel, Duchess of Osuna vs sco : María Josefa Pimentel y Téllez-Girón, Duchess o Osuna (Spanish nobility uses paternal names first followed by maternal maiden names thus en is incorrect and misleading)
  4. en wiki Ángela Téllez-Girón, 16th Duchess of Osuna vs sco Ángela Téllez-Girón y Duque de Estrada, 16t Duchess o Osuna (same situation as above)

I honestly don't know what to do. This is all so frustrating and unfair, as I said I doubt I'd be ignored in person. Pleaseeeeeeeeee help me. :( signed Tom (talk) 13:56, 13 Mey 2021 (UTC)[Replie]

Also Tom, let me make myself clear: it is the communities that you have to ask to be unblocked. The COMMUNITIES. Not the stewards, not Jimbo Wales, not me, the communities. Evading your block just because you don't like it is why you keep being blocked CiphriusKane (tauk) 15:23, 13 Mey 2021 (UTC)[Replie]
I was unaware that I had to contact the communities to be fair. How do I go about doing so, as I've not even heard of this (thank you for informing me of this though)
en:Wikipedia:Unblock_Ticket_Request_System Use this for enwiki, and for here, post Template:Unblock with your appeal on your IP talk page. Make it clear that you understand why you were blocked and what you will do differently, and most importantly do not make negative aspersions about anybody in your appeal.

Tom, I'm going to level with you here. Any unblock appeal you make is probably going to fail. In your last appeal, you immediately resorted to personal attacks, and that was six weeks ago. The standard offer on enwiki has six months minimum good behaviour from what I understand, and this includes no block evasion or personal attacks. If I help you with the appeals any further, I'm just setting you up for failure CiphriusKane (tauk) 21:16, 15 Mey 2021 (UTC)[Replie]

hello, sorry for the late reply, I saw you had replied when I was on my phone but the screen is too small for me to see what I was actually typing (I'm 75% blind as a result of the previously mentioned brain injury I had in 2012 so I'm writing this on my laptop. Anyway, I do genuinely feel that the way I have been treated has been totally fair, I highly doubt people would have treated me like this if if was in person but because this is the internet it's ok to treat other human beings like dirt, apart from the fact I have made hundreds on articles (on scowiki alone) some of which I think have been deleted presumably due to the poor linguistics so fine but I also though Wikipedia was for everyone? Not just a lucky few. I set up SeaSnail using an email address for a faceboik account I have (email address is lmadebourbon@gmail.com look it up IF you don't believe me) and my ip address at that point was not blocked so thought it would be ok but MY email was blocked (tom.june13@gmail.com) so it does sort of feel like I can never win :| as I have said to you countless times (and probably other) I'm a hguman being, with feelings I don't deserve to be treated like a bad person when I'm not, plus I've never vandalised Wikipedia corrected yes, but not vandalised. Signed Tom (talk) 16:12, 17 Mey 2021 (UTC)[Replie]
Six months Tom. That is the minimum I expect you to wait before making any further appeals. I'll also be blocking this IP because you were on thin ice as it was, but resorting to casting aspersions again cracked it CiphriusKane (tauk) 08:11, 20 Mey 2021 (UTC)[Replie]

Invitation for Functionary consultation 2021[eedit soorce]

Greetings, Admins of the emerging community,

I'm letting you know in advance about a meeting I'd like to invite you to regarding the Universal Code of Conduct and the community's ownership of its future enforcement. I'm still in the process of putting together the details, but I wanted to share the date with you: 10/11 July, 2021. I do not have a time on this date yet, but I will let you soon. We have created a meta page with basic information. Please take a look at the meta page and sign up your name under the appropriate section.

Thank you for your time.--BAnand (WMF) 15:14, 10 June 2021 (UTC)

Translation request[eedit soorce]


Can you translate and upload the articles en:Flag of the Azerbaijan Soviet Socialist Republic, en:Emblem of the Azerbaijan Soviet Socialist Republic and en:Anthem of the Azerbaijan Soviet Socialist Republic in Scots Wikipedia? They should not be long.

Yours sincerely, Multituberculata (tauk) 15:16, 1 Julie 2021 (UTC)[Replie]

How is my Scots on the article Lycalopex?

Also, due to my passion in righting the Scots Wikipedia, I've been rewriting increasingly large sections of articles (about animals, for the time being) in what I think is correct Scots. Am I at risk of becoming the new AG? --Корсикэн-Уара (юзер толк) 17:56, 18 Julie 2021 (UTC)[Replie]

I suggest you block 2601:43:0:3970:0:0:0:0/64 instead. IP users on this particular ISP can hop IP's in a /64 range pretty easily (switching from devices, opening a new browser window) Wizzito (tauk) 20:46, 19 December 2021 (UTC)[Replie]

How we will see unregistered users[eedit soorce]


You get this message because you are an admin on a Wikimedia wiki.

When someone edits a Wikimedia wiki without being logged in today, we show their IP address. As you may already know, we will not be able to do this in the future. This is a decision by the Wikimedia Foundation Legal department, because norms and regulations for privacy online have changed.

Instead of the IP we will show a masked identity. You as an admin will still be able to access the IP. There will also be a new user right for those who need to see the full IPs of unregistered users to fight vandalism, harassment and spam without being admins. Patrollers will also see part of the IP even without this user right. We are also working on better tools to help.

If you have not seen it before, you can read more on Meta. If you want to make sure you don’t miss technical changes on the Wikimedia wikis, you can subscribe to the weekly technical newsletter.

We have two suggested ways this identity could work. We would appreciate your feedback on which way you think would work best for you and your wiki, now and in the future. You can let us know on the talk page. You can write in your language. The suggestions were posted in October and we will decide after 17 January.

Thank you. /Johan (WMF)

Scots question.[eedit soorce]

Is it true that in the Scots language, "in" means the same thing in both English & Scots? I am still not the best at Scots at the moment, especially with the Scottish equivalent of "sight words". Could you redirect me to some resources for learning Scots? It would be greatly helpful and appreciated as I am having some difficulty finding nice resources.

Best Regards, L'Mainerque (tauk) 00:57, 8 October 2022 (UTC)[Replie]

(en) @L'Mainerque: Yep, though some people spell it as i and drop the n. "an" would mean either "an" or "and" in English. As for resources, Michael Dempster has a 10-hour course on Scots here and there's a Scots language Discord server here CiphriusKane (tauk) 01:04, 8 October 2022 (UTC)[Replie]
(en) @CiphriusKane I figured, I thought "an" meant both "and" & "in" from something I read, but I wasn't 100% sure. I will take a look onto that 10hr course & I have joined the Discord.
Thank you so much,

Quick question / main page[eedit soorce]

Hi there. I'm Uiser:Alison - bureaucrat and admin on the Irish and Manx Wikipedias. I just happened to stop by and saw that the mainpage here could use a little makeover. I did this successfully for both the Irish and Manx wikis, including setting up daily rolling content, updating the CSS and Modules, etc. I don't speak Scots, I have to say, so would need a little bit of your help on a few things - but I can easily handle all the technical stuff.

Let me know what you think - Alison (tauk) 21:40, 27 December 2022 (UTC)[Replie]

(en) @Alison: Hey, I appreciate the offer. The main page is something that's not been touched since Leidgate, so could probably do with a fresh coat of paint, so to speak. If you're willing, we can talk more in the E Scots Leid discord server (invite), as while I try and keep discussions onwiki I feel like this could benefit from real time chat, plus there's other editors on there that prefer Discord over onwiki discussions CiphriusKane (tauk) 14:31, 28 December 2022 (UTC)[Replie]

Discouraged[eedit soorce]

Hello Ciphrius. I can see that according to your userpage you're feeling a bit discouraged at the moment. Keep up the good work here. I always enjoy chatting with you on Discord, it actually helps me learn more about different cultures without having to travel to them! (no I'm not going to rewrite this in Scots, I can read it but not speak it. If I did I would probably sound like someone trying to sound like Shrek) Blaze Wolf (tauk) 14:10, 30 Januar 2023 (UTC)[Replie]

Recreation of some deleted pages for Car manufacturers[eedit soorce]

@CiphriusKane Hi Ciphrius! Please can you recreate some deleted pages about Car manufacturers which you deleted them on Scots Wikipedia:

  • Aston Martin
  • Audi
  • Bentley
  • Chevrolet
  • Jeep
  • Nissan
  • Porsche
  • Škoda Auto
  • Volvo Cars

In addition, can you create a new page for the newborn German Car manufacturer Borgward: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Borgward

and also for Cadillac: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cadillac and VinFast: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/VinFast which are missing on Scots Wikipedia.

Thanks EDASHI (tauk) 05:36, 11 September 2023 (UTC)[Replie]

(en) Those articles were all deleted for being Scotched, and checking over the deleted revisions they were also extremely threadbare and quantity-over-quality creations (i.e. 1-2 unsourced sentences). Given how much of this wiki is still like that, I'm disinclined to recreate those pages myself but I'll not stop anybody that wishes to (re)create the pages while addressing the issues I listed CiphriusKane (tauk) 11:20, 11 September 2023 (UTC)[Replie]
