Hello, Pppery. 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). Also worthwhile acquainting yourself with the functions of global user pages. Happy editing!

I guess making a post to Meta:RFH (but not Meta:RFD for some reason) makes me well-known. Pppery (talk) 21:07, 17 February 2019 (UTC)
Or it was time you were welcomed ... or users with redlink talk pages stand out editing in RC and those who don't need to, shouldn't <grin>  — billinghurst sDrewth 22:48, 17 February 2019 (UTC)

Restricted viewer access in WikiJournalsEdit

Hi. A few people mentioned the issue of restricted viewer access to some files, discussions, and user identities. A discussion was added at Talk:WikiJournal#Hidden_contribution and I thought I should notify you incase you wanted to further comment. I'm happy to add a note under your comment if you prefer, but I wanted to avoid spamming the discussion section. T.Shafee(Evo﹠Evo)talk 14:02, 8 June 2019 (UTC)

Some oddities around Module:Documentation / Template:Documentation. Could you please assist?Edit

Hello Pppery, could you please assist me with Module:Documentation? Template:Documentation invokes it and somehow is generating all sorts of lint errors, such as having tt, font, and center tags, yet I cannot find any? Do you have any idea why this might be happening? (an example of a tt error flagged that is just template call, same thing for center, example search). Thank you! --TheSandDoctor Talk 22:06, 22 April 2020 (UTC)

@TheSandDoctor: Linter is rather far from my area of expertise, but I think that that just means that there is a lint error in the doc page somewhere (in this case, there are <tt> tags in the parameters section of Template:Please see/doc and <center> tags in the parameters of Template:User from WMF project/doc). * Pppery * it has begun 22:12, 22 April 2020 (UTC)
Yup, that appears to be it! Thanks so much   --TheSandDoctor Talk 22:14, 22 April 2020 (UTC)

Thank you!Edit

The redirect was a better idea than I had. I appreciate very much you taking the time. :D --Maggie Dennis (WMF) (talk) 16:52, 6 July 2020 (UTC)

Notifying main contributors of the page about XfDEdit


It is generally considered civil to notify the good-faith creator and any main contributors of the articles that you are nominating for deletion.

In English WP, it has been consensus for years to extend the practice to all pages, not articles only. Where is my notification? Incnis Mrsi (talk) 18:23, 18 September 2020 (UTC)

I see no point in notifying indefinitely blocked users, because they can't respond. You can see from my user talk namespace contributions that I do generally notify the creators of pages I nominate for deletion. * Pppery * it has begun 19:20, 18 September 2020 (UTC)
I obviously can respond. It’s you unwilling to listen. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 05:53, 19 September 2020 (UTC)

BTW you and Fastily fouled up the only live example of table concatenation at en:Wikipedia_talk:Lua/Archive_1 #Returning the concatenation of numerous words. Note that I don’t seek undeletion; I indeed seek apologies. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 21:17, 5 February 2021 (UTC)

Issues with AfroCine MassMessage listEdit

Hello Pppery -- I wondered if you could help me with something. I'm trying to remove my Wikipedia user page from this AfroCine MassMessage list. However, my attempted edit is being repeatedly perceived as spam (it won't allow me to properly unsubscribe). Could you remove me from this list? Alanna the Brave (talk) 00:20, 9 November 2020 (UTC)

  Done * Pppery * it has begun 00:21, 9 November 2020 (UTC)
