Hiya! I saw you were popping this on everyone else's user page, so managed to beat you to it by 4 minutes ;) thanks, though! Keep it up! James Hyett (tauk) 22:46, 26 August 2020 (UTC)
Somthin puckle an practical a cuid dae, an hopefully biggit confidence gain forrit.
Something small and practical that I could do, and hopefully building confidence going forward. Soothrhins (tauk) 22:56, 26 August 2020 (UTC)

Why did you revert my edit? (en)[eedit soorce]

(en) It's just hilarious. It's like a comedy sketch, or a Viz strip, or something. The idea that speaking badly, in an unintelligible, thick regional accent, somehow turns English into a new language is beyond parody. This is the funniest thing I've read all year. What next? Pakistani English? Geordie? Thanks for the laughs, it's really cheered me up, especially the fact that you couldn't tell the difference between "Scots" and some American teenager taking the piss out of you.2A00:23C4:3984:3400:4808:4F88:6468:803D (talk) 13:15, 27 August 2020 (UTC) I removed this comment because it was uncivil. Why did you revert it? --108.17.71.32 (talk) 23:33, 28 August 2020 (UTC)

(en) I appreciate that your edit was in good faith, I'm not sure that it's best practice to remove comments from talk pages, regardless of their civility. See for instance this page on enwiki's Talk page guidelines. James Hyett (tauk) 00:18, 29 August 2020 (UTC)

Placenames[eedit soorce]

Thanks James, you are on fire! Soothrhins (tauk) 22:07, 31 August 2020 (UTC)

IP editor[eedit soorce]

99.110.180.109, from 2010-11. Created a lot of articles, mostly in Scotched English. --Bangalamania (tauk) 16:32, 12 September 2020 (UTC)

Cheers! James Hyett (tauk) 16:36, 12 September 2020 (UTC)
Nae bother. 98.255.56.79 has been doing some similar as well in 2012. Like you say, they don't seem to be part of the same bot network as the others but still some very odd activities. --Bangalamania (tauk) 17:57, 12 September 2020 (UTC)
Also just noticed 66.60.156.2, 2010-15. User page says they're an institutional IP, and Varlaam seems to have been in contact with them at the time. So sorry if I'm giving you more work to do! --Bangalamania (tauk) 14:26, 13 September 2020 (UTC)
This is great, thanks! James Hyett (tauk) 16:49, 13 September 2020 (UTC)

Another? Special:Contributions/2A00:23C6:3704:D301:D9C:C7FF:A04A:82B? soothrhins (tauk) 06:55, 21 September 2020 (UTC)

Not sure on this too? Special:Contributions/24.23.43.100 - soothrhins (tauk) 07:43, 21 September 2020 (UTC)
Thanks Soothrhins-- I think these (and probably those identified by Bangalamania above) would be more appropriate for a VfD than the PRAYER POWER IPs, simply because it's not as obvious (from the edit summaries) that they are clearly not people. I'll look into it further and try to start a VfD later today. James Hyett (tauk) 14:05, 23 September 2020 (UTC)

(in Inglis) Next Editathon![eedit soorce]

Just a wee note to invite you to the next Editathon - 29th & 30th September - where we'll be focussing on places in Scotland. Training will take place at 12 noon and 6pm on the 29th - any questions or requests, please let us know! Sara Thomas (WMUK) (tauk) 12:44, 23 September 2020 (UTC)

Cheers! Looking forward to it :) James Hyett (tauk) 14:05, 23 September 2020 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![eedit soorce]

Hey, you might not speak Scots, but you certainly speak one more language than me. That definitely has to count for something, right? Haha.
In all seriousness, you have done an amazing service to the Wikimedia movement by contributing here. You pretty much erased the entire years long contributions of subtle vandal that I never let myself take action on. Single-handedly, I might add! Just imagining what you are going to do for this project in the future brings me great joy. –MJLTauk 06:45, 14 October 2020 (UTC)

Merci beaucoup!! I've been caught up with some irl and enwiki stuff recently, but I've no intention of abandoning the scowiki community while there's still work to be done. James Hyett (tauk) 14:27, 14 October 2020 (UTC)

(in Inglis) Next Scots Wiki editathon - 14 & 15 November[eedit soorce]

Hey there, as you attended one of our previous editathons, thought you might like to know about the next one! 14 & 15 November, details on the event page, the theme is Weemin an Minorities fae Scotland an Ulster. Plenty of tasks for non-scots speakers too.  :) Sara Thomas (WMUK) (tauk) 12:43, 10 November 2020 (UTC)

(in Inglis) Next editathon[eedit soorce]

Hey there, as a previous attendee of a Scots Wiki editathon, I thought you might like to know about the December event, Sat 12 & Sun 13th. In addition to the usual wiki support, this month I'm really excited to say that we'll have language support in place from the Scots Language Centre, who'll be online between 12-3 on Zoom on Saturday with us to help with any of your queries.

There are as always jobs that non/lower level Scots speakers can do - articles always need things like citations, categories, wikilinks & images. There's a lot of work like this to be done, and it's all really valuable!

Hope to see you there!Sara Thomas (WMUK) (tauk) 13:58, 8 Dizember 2020 (UTC)

Thanks! Sorry I missed the last one, I've been moving house. See you later in the week! James Hyett (tauk) 14:02, 8 Dizember 2020 (UTC)

Great! Looking forward to it :) Sara Thomas (WMUK) (tauk) 16:28, 11 Dizember 2020 (UTC)

(in Inglis) Sunday 13th December - extra zoom session with the Scots Language Centre![eedit soorce]

We've added another session for the editathon this weekend, with the folks from the SLC. Join us on Zoom for editing 12-3 on Sunday now too; we can help with wiki and language queries :) Book your place on Eventbrite here. Sara Thomas (WMUK) (tauk) 16:28, 11 Dizember 2020 (UTC)

(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. More info, article lists, and sign up details on the event page: Wikipedia:Scots Wikipedia Editathon Januar 2021. Sara Thomas (WMUK) (tauk) 10:03, 27 Januar 2021 (UTC)
