Childishbeat is creating category pages with no content[eedit soorce]

Hi, could you take a look at Special:Contributions/Childishbeat and nuke if appropriate? Thanks. Masumrezarock100 (tauk) 22:42, 22 Dizember 2019 (UTC)

@Masumrezarock100:  Duin Thank you for the heads up (and saving me weeks of cleanup if I didn't notice). I've never actually had to do that before. I gave them a warning, so they will be blocked if they make anymore empty categories. –MJLTauk 22:49, 22 Dizember 2019 (UTC)
Weird case. They seem to have good contributions on enwiki. Masumrezarock100 (tauk) 22:55, 22 Dizember 2019 (UTC)
@Masumrezarock100: They recently did the same thing on enwiki as well, but not in such a massive way. However, on simplewiki, it's the same story as here. Face-troubled.svgMJLTauk 23:04, 22 Dizember 2019 (UTC)

Greetings[eedit soorce]

Thanks for the message on my page. Regards the Trotsky edits I made, most of that is common knowledge. So once I get the hang of editing Wiki and using Scots, I'll get the info back up there. For me it reads like hagiography. And an outline of the ideological differences is essential. Goniga (tauk) 09:49, 28 Dizember 2019 (UTC)

@Goniga: I want you to know I fully support your editing here. It was a really difficult decision whether I should remove that content because the Scots was really solid. I don't want people to ever feel welcomed here, but I'm also trying to improve verifiability on Scotts Wikipedia (a lot of stuff is unsourced).
If you would like improve our coverage of socialist issues, I highly recommend starting by translating works like Voltairine de Cleyre into Scots. It'll give you a better sense of what good articles look more like. Kindest regards, –MJLTauk 15:47, 28 Dizember 2019 (UTC)

Category:Candidates for speedy deletion needs attention[eedit soorce]

Hi, could you empty the category? Some pages are even listed there for more than 7 days. Masumrezarock100 (tauk) 13:16, 17 Januar 2020 (UTC)

@Masumrezarock100:  Duin Thank you for letting me know! :D –MJLTauk 14:55, 17 Januar 2020 (UTC)

please remember to link new pages to their Wikidata items[eedit soorce]

I see you forgot to do that for Category:20t-century Austrick fowk. Sincerely, --Sije (tauk) 21:39, 29 Januar 2020 (UTC)

@Sije: Yeah, I get lazy sometimes. Sorry about that! –MJLTauk 00:00, 6 Februar 2020 (UTC)

note re rights[eedit soorce]

Hi. could you please grant me user rights here at this wiki? eg, rollback, etc? I have over ten years experience at editing wikipedia. --Sm8900 (tauk) 23:39, 5 Februar 2020 (UTC)

@Sm8900: I appreciate your enthusiasm for contributing to this wiki!
However, I must sadly inform you that we only four user rights on Sco.wiki: rollbacker, autopatroller, IP block exempt, and bot uiser.
I'm pretty selective about who I grant autopatroller unless a person has demonstrated proficiency in both MediaWiki and Scots. I suppose I could grant you rollbacker, but are you sure you really need it? You don't have it on enwiki, so I have to ask. –MJLTauk 00:00, 6 Februar 2020 (UTC)
thanks! actually you;re correct, I don't need it. I was unclear as to what it actually meant. no problem, tthat's fine. I've been looking around, and really enjoying this wiki. thanks!!--Sm8900 (tauk) 01:46, 6 Februar 2020 (UTC)

About Nitin_Patkar[eedit soorce]

I found this article while going through RC. A SWMT member had tagged it for deletion because it looked like "spam". It doesn't look like spammy to me, but the subject doesn't appear to be notable. At least I couldn't find any reliable and independent source when doing a quick BEFORE. So I was wondering if Scottish Wikipedia has any criteria for speedy deletion like A7. Regardless I tagged it for speedy deletion. If it doesn't meet any of the criteria for speedy deletion, could you tell me show me how to nominate it for AFD? Does scowiki have such process of deletion? Masumrezarock100 (tauk) 00:07, 9 Februar 2020 (UTC)

Looks like the subject himself is directly editing the article. Masumrezarock100 (tauk) 13:05, 11 Februar 2020 (UTC)

@Masumrezarock100: Woops, I didn't respond to your last message. To be honest, I have no clue what to do in a borderline case like this.
@AmaryllisGardener: Could I just delete the page if it isn't notable? What do?
In the meantime, I have semi-protected this page. –MJLTauk 17:52, 11 Februar 2020 (UTC)
@MJL: yeah articles like that are obviously not notable and can be deleted. Plus it's in pure English. --AmaryllisGardener talk 18:28, 11 Februar 2020 (UTC)

Consumer_Finance[eedit soorce]

@MJL, AmaryllisGardener: Just wanted to draw your attention to Consumer_Finance. Looks like a list and not an article, wholly written in English without any source whatsoever. Does it qualify for deletion? Masumrezarock100 (tauk) 00:47, 12 Februar 2020 (UTC)

@Masumrezarock100: Went ahead and deleted it. 100% cross-wiki spam. --AmaryllisGardener talk 04:09, 12 Februar 2020 (UTC)

Vandalism[eedit soorce]

Hi. Could you block 2602:306:83A9:3D00:A410:72E6:2648:4D5B? Thank you! —Hasley (tauk) 23:25, 16 Februar 2020 (UTC)

@Hasley: Ah, sorry. Seems the range is now globally blocked before I saw this. My apologies for the delay. –MJLTauk 02:33, 17 Februar 2020 (UTC)
