Hello, CentralTime301. Welcome to the Wikimedia Meta-Wiki! This website is for coordinating and discussing all Wikimedia projects. You may find it useful to read our policy page. If you are interested in doing translations, visit Meta:Babylon. You can also leave a note on Meta:Babel or Wikimedia Forum if you need help with something (please read the instructions at the top of the page before posting there). Happy editing!

Sgd. Hasley 18:11, 6 March 2020 (UTC)

Hasley (talk · contribs) ok I guess. You're welcome! --CentralTime301 (Discussion/Contributions) 18:17, 6 March 2020 (UTC)

What was that supposed to be?

Please stay away from my talk page. If you need a page to play around with, use your own one. It is neither appreciated, nor in any way appropriate to edit other users' talk pages, other than for taking part in a discussion. --თოგო (D) 19:08, 6 March 2020 (UTC)

Thogo, I was trying to test a script to close discussions but I accidentally did that on your talk page (which I have to stay away from). I am sorry and won't do that again. --CentralTime301 (Discussion/Contributions) 19:11, 6 March 2020 (UTC)


Hello, per above thread, meta is not for testing. If possible refrain from testing here. You are welcomed to contribute, and I see you are translating some pages, that's good. I hope you aren't using the machine translation though, they are inaccurate and need to be vetted before publishing. Regards,--Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 19:31, 6 March 2020 (UTC)

Okay, but I was trying to put so me scripts on my .js file. And that I even left an edit summary (translating) to translate (but not the machine translation). CentralTime301 (Discussion/Contributions) 20:55, 6 March 2020 (UTC)
Just take it slowly here, regards.--Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 07:05, 7 March 2020 (UTC)
Camouflaged Mirage, I have a question: what do you mean I have to take it slowly here? --CentralTime301 (Discussion/Contributions) 14:17, 7 March 2020 (UTC)
Hola. Dudo que recibir a usuarios que ni siquiera tienen ediciones locales sea algo útil. Échale un ojo a Meta:Babel/Archives/2016-01#Welcoming. Gracias por tu interés en contribuir en el proyecto. Saludos. —Sgd. Hasley 20:08, 7 March 2020 (UTC)
Hasley, estaba dando la bienvenida al usuario en este edición. Es todo. --CentralTime301 (Discussion/Contributions) 21:03, 7 March 2020 (UTC)
Thanks Hasley for answering in part for me (per google translate), I will say take it slowly means not to do things you are unsure of and to slowly learn from others. Meta isn't a testing ground or learning place per say, and people tend to be angry when you do something out of what the community wants. Even I am still learning each day and keep on remind myself not to do things I am unsure of. I am happy to help you and both of us are administrators here, feel free to ask us what questions you have and all the best. Sorry I cannot speak your language. :)--Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 06:40, 8 March 2020 (UTC)
Camouflaged Mirage it's OK! I also speak English too (see above)! Anyway, I signed up to part of a translating group (a day or hours ago) in Meta but how am I supposed to take it slowly in the machine translating? You said that it needs to be vetted prior to publishing. :\ CentralTime301 (Discussion/Contributions) 14:32, 8 March 2020 (UTC)
Aprecio tu trabajo en IP block exempt/es, pero te pido que te abstengas de usar traducciones automáticas y revises el contenido de lo que estás traduciendo (ejemplo). Personalmente, prefiero mantener el texto en inglés a tener una traducción de baja calidad. Recuerda, quality over quantity. Si tienes una duda, consúltame. —Sgd. Hasley 15:31, 8 March 2020 (UTC)
Hasley, yo estaba traduciendo porciones del IP block exempt/es porque fue 80% completo. (Un porción pequeña no fue traducido en español.) --CentralTime301 (Discussion/Contributions) 15:35, 8 March 2020 (UTC)
Vale, agradezco tu respuesta. Solo te recomiendo que no uses traductores automáticos ni traduzcas si no sabes el idioma. Esto trae más problemas que beneficios. Saludos. —Sgd. Hasley 15:43, 8 March 2020 (UTC)
Hasley ok. Solo yo estaba traduciendo de inglés a los idiomas de español o francés. --CentralTime301 (Discussion/Contributions) 15:45, 8 March 2020 (UTC)

English Wikipedia EC

@CentralTime301, don’t you have extended confirmed rights on the English Wikipedia? Also, on English Wikipedia, make an unblock request in 3 months under the standard offer. I would, but I had my TPA revoked on both this IP and my account. the IP block was extended from being 1.5 more months to being reset to 6 months. The intial block was 2 months. 19:09, 17 March 2020 (UTC)

@ I do have extended confirmed rights on the English Wikipedia (but a little note was that my previous block was 1 year and now is indefinite). CentralTime301 (Discussion/Contributions) 19:11, 17 March 2020 (UTC)
First off, it is still me, I just created an account on Meta. Secondly, the block is indefinite, so you should be elligable. I would recommend waiting 9 months for a total of a year, as then you’d be 15 and would have matured. Also, why was it extended? I am 13, so I would know it too, but I was blocked for sockpuppetry there. Contest it with the standard offer, you should be eligible in July, I would recommend doing it in December or January. Gale5050 (talk) 15:40, 21 March 2020 (UTC)
@Gale5050: first of all, in the English Wikipedia I had to be blocked for 1 year because of multiple issues. On January 15, 2020 I was caught for block evasion using 2 IPs so that's why some sysop changed my block settings (expiry formerly 1 year and has no expiry set at all). In addition to that date prior to the indefinite block, some editor made a sock puppet investigation about me saying possible block evasion. Some sysop realized I was the sockpuppet master of these IPs and that's why my block is indefinite. Oh, and after I replied at your message I will check your CentralAuth. --CentralTime301 (Discussion/Contributions) 15:46, 21 March 2020 (UTC)
In that case, @CentralTime301, wait at least 1 year before the standard offer. But I’d recommend 2, to show you really matured. An administrator will give me TPA back in September to make Standard Offer appeal. I also contacted User: Bbb23 on Meta. Hopefully I do not get blocked. But I tried to be very civil with him. This is also my 10th edit on Meta. Gale5050 (talk) 15:49, 21 March 2020 (UTC)
@Gale5050: I believe Bbb23 may or may not respond to your email. When I checked your CentralAuth, it says on that you are blocked indefinitely with account creation blocked, email disabled and cannot edit your own talk page, with the block reason saying: {{checkuserblock-account}}: user sending threatening e-mail. I hope you didn't send "threatening email".   Comment about that they will decline my unblock request in the English Wikipedia after waiting so long after being matured. --CentralTime301 (Discussion/Contributions) 15:59, 21 March 2020 (UTC)
@CentralTime301, I did not send a threatening eMail, I just said he did not assume good faith via eMail for revoking my TPA. He thought I was threatening him with a warning when I came back(which I tried to do via block evasion on 3/13, but Favonian immediately blocked that IP for a year.) I did not send a threatening eMail, I just think he thought it was inappropriate, but did not want to say that as that was how I got TPA revoked. Gale5050 (talk) 16:03, 21 March 2020 (UTC)
@Gale5050:   Comment about: the words in that email did sound threatening so that's why Bbb23 had to disable email after revoking your TPA. --CentralTime301 (Discussion/Contributions) 16:06, 21 March 2020 (UTC)

I guess you are right. Also, I am worried as since I did commit sockpuppetry twice, I can get banned on Andrew5 due to WP: 3X. I think he knew it was a Sockpuppet since February 28 at 01:40 UTC but was not confirmed till 18:21 UTC on March 3. My original block was not here to build an encyclopedia at 19:38 UTC on February 27, 2020 Gale5050 (talk) 16:09, 21 March 2020 (UTC)

PS let’s stop indenting for now. We can start again but it will get too small if we continue. Also, I tried talking to him in a calmer way on Meta. Gale5050 (talk) 16:10, 21 March 2020 (UTC)

Btw, Bbb23 blocked me at first sight as he did see a warning about an edit I made on Power of 2. Also, he called me a troll, so I guess that angered me too. Gale5050 (talk) 16:14, 21 March 2020 (UTC)
  Comment: when did Bbb23 called you a "troll"? Note that I'm not being offensive to you. --CentralTime301 (Discussion/Contributions) 16:22, 21 March 2020 (UTC)

This is what Bbb23 said. “ Note to administrators. First, I believe Gale5050 is a troll. Some of their edits make that obvious + the obsession with the protection policy. Second, they edited significantly and abusively while logged out.--Bbb23 (talk) 23:37, 27 February 2020 (UTC)””. Gale5050 (talk) 16:46, 21 March 2020 (UTC) I think that was when he first suspected me of sockpuppetry. Gale5050 (talk) 16:46, 21 March 2020 (UTC)
@CentralTime301, can you make it so that it says you have extended confirmed, not auto confirmed, rights on the English Wikipedia? Gale5050 (talk) 16:50, 21 March 2020 (UTC)
  Comment: what do you mean I have to "make it"? --CentralTime301 (Discussion/Contributions) 17:03, 21 March 2020 (UTC)
@CentralTime301, I mean fix it so it says extended confirmed not autoconfirmed 1:12 PM Eastern Time Gale5050 (talk)
@Gale5050: only there is extended confirmed on the English Wikipedia (500 edits or more within a month). --CentralTime301 (Discussion/Contributions) 17:16, 21 March 2020 (UTC)

I know, only put it for English Wikipedia. I don’t know when, but I will tell you-I will be off Wikipedia for 3 hours so if you contact me it’ll be 3 hours till you get a reply Gale5050 (talk) 17:39, 21 March 2020 (UTC)

Because my eMail is on a different phone, I will not be able to look at your eMail for a while, because of Coronavirus. I will tell you the date I can see your eMail Gale5050 (talk) 17:41, 21 March 2020 (UTC)

Oh, by the way @CentralTime301, the reason why I did a different eMail address was because I thought they were able to catch me sockpuppeting because of my eMail address. I did not know they used IP addresses to check. See, I live only 25 miles in the Coronavirus capital of the world, Manhattan. Gale5050 (talk) 18:40, 21 March 2020 (UTC)

By the way it's cool but for now I don't need to know that. We don't need to see each other's personal info. --CentralTime301 (Discussion/Contributions) 17:56, 21 March 2020 (UTC)

Your right, @CentralTime301, I’ll take it down. Also, I will tell you when I see your eMail. When will you make Standard Offer appeal? I would recommend not doing it on 7/16 after six months but instead waiting till 1/16, a year after block evasion. Mine will be either on 9/17 or 9/21, depending on if making a UTRS appeal resets the timer. Actually, does it? But yeah you should know I live in the Coronavirus capital of America Gale5050 (talk) 18:40, 21 March 2020 (UTC)

I will do that a year after I was caught for block evasion (1/15 2020) but what reason will I have to put in the unblock request? They might decline the request. --CentralTime301 (Discussion/Contributions) 18:45, 21 March 2020 (UTC)

Ok. But for me, if it ain't broke which I unfortunately did, don't fix it (not you, myself). CT301 talkcontributions 18:44, 29 March 2020 (UTC)
In addition, when reporting grossly insulting names to SRG, please do it manually and use parameter hidename=1. I had to RD one of your edits completely as well as the summary.

Okay maybe next time but was already blocked by Hasley. Thanks. CT301 talkcontributions 18:47, 29 March 2020 (UTC)
You know that sending to SRG is for Global locks? Please please take it slowly here thanks. And to be honest, go to a content project and contribute. Meta isn't for people who are totally new. Thanks much.Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 18:49, 29 March 2020 (UTC)
Okay alright. CT301 talkcontributions 18:50, 29 March 2020 (UTC)
