Wow, Adnan, thanks for the welcome! You are the person (through Wikipedia) who introduced me to Vikidia today! I'm glad to discover another place where my English proofreading experience and Wiki markup skills can be useful to others. Cheers! Deborahjay (talk) 18:40, 16 January 2022 (UTC)
Did you meant Simple English Wikipedia? Adnan (talk) 18:44, 16 January 2022 (UTC)
Well, I'm only Adnan here. LOL Cheers!
Yes, yesterday on Simple English WP - I check in there only about once a month. Just happened to notice your name (Adnan followed by five numerals), then the rare (to me) languages on your User page (BS/HR/SR). I volunteer in a number of underserved WPs mainly in African languages without knowing any, especially by categorizing and little topical content till local editors take over. Deborahjay (talk) 12:16, 17 January 2022 (UTC)
You right, I don't like to contribute to big Wikis. There is almost nothing to do. Also, there is hard to catch all vandalism. Here... super easy.Adnan Bla? 16:53, 17 January 2022 (UTC)

Your contribs[edit source]

Well done, Deborahjay. I just want to thank you for good contributions. I'm active every day on Vikidia and sometimes I am only user active that day. I will look for nominating you for some right in future. Sorry if I did disturbed you. Please continue like this.--Adnan Bla? 18:39, 17 January 2022 (UTC)

From en Wikipedia?[edit source]

Did you copy from english Wikipedia? If you did undo your edit please. Adnan Bla? 22:15, 18 January 2022 (UTC)
Copying from other sites is forbidden by law. I have to go sleep so I don't have time to check did you copy or not. Wink Adnan Bla? 22:19, 18 January 2022 (UTC)

Two matters of note:
  • I wrote in the Edit summary field that EN Wikipedia was the source of the factual info (author's name and book's publication year, movie's release date).
  • The text I wrote in the lead paragraph of Holes is my own wording. I fully understand the concern and avoid plagiarism.
Does this resolve your concern? Sorry it took me a while to get back to you, but I wanted to check this myself to be sure. Deborahjay (talk) 09:00, 19 January 2022 (UTC)

Help[edit source]

How do i get help on Vikidia? BakhosYT Say hi! 04:56, 19 January 2022 (UTC)

Hello, Bakhos, I appreciate your question. I'm new here myself (three days' activity) but have a lot of experience in Wikimedia projects like Wikipedia in different languages and Wikidata. That's where I learned to "wikify" texts: format, links, categories, etc. But in the Vikidia vertical navigation bar (blue links on the left side of a screen), there's no link for "Help" - so what help do you want? Deborahjay (talk) 10:02, 19 January 2022 (UTC)
You can go here1 or here2 or here3 - Unsigned response by IP User: at 14:19, 19 January 2022‎
Notification Deborahjay: how do i fix format in 2022 Kazakh protests? Can you help? BakhosYT Say hi! 14:08, 19 January 2022 (UTC)
Notification Bakhos:, see what I wrote on the Talk page - "Suggested organization of content". I hope that's helpful. Ask me if it needs clarifying and I'll look for examples on other Wikis. I'm not available to work on the page, though. Deborahjay (talk) 08:53, 22 January 2022 (UTC)

Autopatrol(?)[edit source]

Sorry. Autopatrol is not granted automatically. If you want to be an autopatrol you have to ask bureaucrats. Wink Cheers! Adnan Bla? 14:07, 30 January 2022 (UTC)

Autopatroller can be granted by admins and above, Adnan. Notification Deborahjay:, you now have autopatroller rights. I think with your work on Wikipedia, you're more than capable of handling this :) DaneGeld (talk) 14:18, 30 January 2022 (UTC)
Thanks to you both! Deborahjay (talk) 14:24, 30 January 2022 (UTC)
