Hi DaneGeld, I blocked this user and gave a final warning to Felix. Hope you'll come back on Vikidia soon. Tell me if I can help. Plyd (talk) 14:06, 29 June 2018 (CEST)
Notification Plyd: Excellente. Merci pour l'assistance. Vos aide est grandement appréciée. DaneGeld (talk) 23:04, 29 June 2018 (CEST)

do you need sysop rights? Plyd (talk)
It would be helpful if I could get them, Notification Plyd:. Would you like me to go through the formal route, to apply for sysop? DaneGeld (talk) 20:52, 1 July 2018 (CEST)
since the community is still quite small, we don't run formal votes, but you can ask for it to everyone in talk page, like Vikidia:Talk/2018/22. Plyd (talk) 08:54, 2 July 2018 (CEST)

Congratulations

On your adminship. You are a great candidate, and I'm happy that you are now an admin. Felix R. 02:04, 6 July 2018 (CEST)

Hi Jerbo01. I'm Chris, and I'm one of the administrators for Vikidia. Welcome to the project. Please enjoy editing and if you have any questions about what to do and how, feel free to ask! DaneGeld (talk) 00:56, 28 November 2018 (CET)

Noo why yoo deleted that page about RationalWiki??

Catholic-Latvija (talk) 19:11, 21 March 2019 (UTC)

Notification Catholic-Latvija: Because it's what we call an attack article. You wrote it in a way which was completely negative, it was subjective (based on your own opinion of the subject) and you used foul language in the text when you wrote it. This wiki is for young children. If you swear or use rude language when you're writing, you're liable to get blocked from editing here! DaneGeld (talk) 19:16, 21 March 2019 (UTC)
After all it was just one! But you could have simply removed that word and done. There's no need to take away my entire page.. Catholic-Latvija (talk) 19:19, 21 March 2019 (UTC)
When you write an article here, it must be written from a factual point of view - in other words, you write it using actual information about the site. Writing based on your own opinions is not good because your opinion is only yours, and it may give people the wrong impression about the subject you're writing about. It wasn't just the swearing, it was the whole tone of the work. I hope this explains it. DaneGeld (talk) 19:23, 21 March 2019 (UTC)

Knock it off!

You are repeatedly insulting God! In a left-wing Scandinavian country like yours many people like insulting Christianity (because of the P.C.), but in the Latvian region of Latgale also in Northern Europe P.C. is frowned upon and a 33 year old male is being seriously offended! And probably many Latvians & other nationalities too... so please stop fearing God. And cut the massive attack against me. I want to restore faith in young people, and that's why I am here on Vikidia, yes, that's why! Zionist societies are weakening Christian culture in the West and I am one of the many people that wish to revert their disasters!!! Accept me! In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit! Dievbijīgie Katoļu (talk) 19:44, 24 March 2019 (UTC)

No. You insulted me and my colleagues here, you were very rude, and now you're block evading. And next, you're leaving. Goodbye. DaneGeld (talk) 20:00, 24 March 2019 (UTC)


Reporting about I.P. address vandalizes Vikidia

Hello, DaneGeld! I'm presuming that you are an admin. Could you block User:213.205.242.96? They keep on vandalizing different articles, sometimes doing the same ones, and are also vandalizing my user page, and I keep on reverting their vandalism. Could you please block them? Check the recent changes for proof. Chills (talk) 02:27, 30 March 2019 (UTC)
Blocked for a month. Thank you for alerting me to this. Apologies for the delay in responding but your message arrived during the night where I'm located and I only just saw it. Please ping me if you spot any else :) DaneGeld (talk) 07:38, 30 March 2019 (UTC)
Anytime! Chills (talk) 07:43, 30 March 2019 (UTC)
Please block User:213.205.242.243. Vandal only account. Chills (talk) 09:24, 30 March 2019 (UTC)
Sorted. I'm about to apply a short term rangeblock to them to knock this on the head. It looks like a range of dynamic IPs so the person gets a new IP every time they disconnect. Let's see how long this keeps them away :) Many thanks again! DaneGeld (talk) 10:51, 30 March 2019 (UTC)
You're welcome! Chills (talk) 09:51, 5 April 2019 (UTC)

The Universe article

Please read the Universe article. I have improved it. I wasn't happy with it before, so I made it much better. I hope you like it! Chills (talk) 10:01, 30 March 2019 (UTC)

Warning!

Another I.P. address is on the loose, 2a01:4c8:80b:2944:1:1:4835:8384, and it has vandalized your user talk page, as I keep reverting their edits. Block them! Chills (talk) 10:10, 5 April 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for the warning. IP blocked for 30 days for edit warring and offensive vandalism. Keep it up and thank you for keeping a watch on my page :) DaneGeld (talk) 11:08, 5 April 2019 (UTC)
You're most welcome! It would be much easier to just block the I.P. addresses for six months, just so that they will learn their lesson. Chills (talk) 13:24, 5 April 2019 (UTC)
The thing about blocks are that they are used as prevention, not punitively (as punishment). It's much easier to give it time for the IP to simply change hands if it is a dynamic one. Plus, it may stop a lot of users from accessing the site who may have nothing to do with the vandalism. I'll keep it at 1 month for now, and revisit it later if things persist after it lifts :) DaneGeld (talk) 14:15, 5 April 2019 (UTC)
Fair enough! Chills (talk) 02:31, 6 April 2019 (UTC)

Another warning!

I keep on reverting another I.P. address's edits. (‎2a01:4c8:82a:2766:1:1:689c:c50b) (Vandal-only account!) Chills (talk) 02:31, 6 April 2019 (UTC)
At least no I.P. addresses will be vandalizing your talk page. So, it just leaves it to auto-created users. I will keeping an eye on your talk page! Great work! Think of me as your personal patroller. Chills (talk) 12:57, 6 April 2019 (UTC)
Once again, many thanks for keeping an eye on my page. Being an administrator, I can't fully protect the page because sometimes, some users might need to get in touch with me (as you do). So IP's, I've directed to use the request for administrators page. I can respond to them there. I don't know what the problem is with me, but I have a feeling I know who the user might be who is vandalizing my page. Take care :) DaneGeld (talk) 13:53, 6 April 2019 (UTC)
You too! Chills (talk) 15:24, 6 April 2019 (UTC)

Vikidia Board

Hi DaneGeld,
We are electing the new Vikidia Board next month. Candidates may apply until the end of April with an email to [email protected]
We don't have any board administrator working on the English Vikidia, and moreover, we have too many administrators from the French Vikidia in proportion.
You've proven to be a good admin and a good link with the techs, what do you think about applying?
Don't worry, it is definitely not an heavy job, board admin work on the actions they like.
Next year, we'll work on partnership with Wikimedia France and Italy to raise more funds, and maybe more projects (languages, ...)
I'd be glad to see you on board! cheers, Plyd (talk) 17:55, 14 April 2019 (UTC)

Hi Notification Plyd:, many thanks for contacting me about this. It certainly seems a proposal I would consider. I think that we should have a board, representative of a wide number of Vikidia sites. What you also suggested about working with Wikimedia France & Italy is definitely worth a go, and I would love to see more projects, (especially one in *cough* Danish....). I will put an application in for this post. DaneGeld (talk) 21:14, 14 April 2019 (UTC)
Good to hear, we wait for your application then :o)
Whatever happens, we are always happy to open new Vikidia, if you think about Danish ;), the job is to gather a minimum community happy to contribute together. But a few motivated contributors may keep it working. Plyd (talk) 08:14, 15 April 2019 (UTC)
I think I will set about finding people who are willing to contribute to a Danish language Vikidia before I go ahead and look at asking about getting one set up. Volunteers are going to be the key to starting something like this, and it's going to take some time to sort out. I'll do the board application tonight and get that mailed off before I go to bed this evening. Catch you around. DaneGeld (talk) 10:22, 15 April 2019 (UTC)

Sorry

Sorry, I was unaware of the passive of this user. Sorry if I offended you, it really was not the goal. I should have asked for your opinion before unlocking. Excuse me. You are a very good contributor, and I do not see why your adventure on Vikidia would stop now. Happy Magasin3 (talk) 09:15, 23 April 2019 (UTC)

Notification Magasin3: - Thank you for your message. I want to apologise to you most sincerely for my behaviour. It is not fitting for me as an administrator to block and expect others to tow my line without question. I am sorry.
Others at Wikipedia have scolded me strongly for the fact that my block of Thewinrat is in very bad faith. It turns out that the user wasn't blocked for vandalism, but because they're young and having trouble contributing at English Wikipedia. They were sent to us here, and to the simple English Wikipedia, where competence isn't entirely necessary.
So here, I am releasing Thewinrat's account and will apologise to him. Thank you for helping to keep me in check. DaneGeld (talk) 00:07, 24 April 2019 (UTC)

Danish Vikidia

Hi, we talked earlier about a Vikidia in Danish, I'd be glad to help you. Do you need any contacts with Wikimedia Danmark? or something?
Best, Plyd (talk) 09:22, 19 May 2019 (UTC)

Hi Plyd. Right now, this is going to have to go on hold. I have got a few different things I am doing right now, including possibly moving back to Denmark from the UK, where I've been living a few years now. Stuff is very much up in the air, so I don't think right now is the right time for me to be trying to start this project. Once things are a little settled down, I will get back to it :) Regards, DaneGeld (talk) 16:14, 19 May 2019 (UTC)
great tell me whenever you're ready! Plyd (talk) 14:35, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
