Manx admin

Alison veen,

(once again, gow my leshtal nagh vel Yernish aym foast!) MacTire's admin status has run out, and we've agreed that I should apply this time, as there's mostly just the two of us. So I've put a request on gv. However, there's nobody on Gv to accept or reject me! Could you let me know where I go to ask for admin status? Gura mie ayd. -- Shimmin Beg 20:30, 10 Lúnasa 2009 (UTC)

Hello again

Todo bien? How are things going with Mr. Palo Alto? I was bored again and i found a link which says you had a "transition"... so your husband didn't really leave you, he just changed his features :-D Fgfsg 12:27, 20 Lúnasa 2009 (UTC)

Hey Johnny ^_^ I see your shenanigans over on ED all right. It's a pity, but I'm largely incommunicado on the internets right now due to being stuck in Ireland. Fascinating stuff but a little off the mark. It should be interesting to see where it goes. The only concern I have is that Mr. Palo Alto might go ballistic and start making a nuisance of himself again. It doesn't necessarily have to be true to cause a problem for me, y'know? - Alison 11:29, 21 Lúnasa 2009 (UTC)
Well, all the linkage provided by D. B. and Grawp, your edits on WP, the livejournal posts, and the photos someone posted point to the existence of a previous male identity... i doubt Andy would go after a dude? Fgfsg 12:53, 21 Lúnasa 2009 (UTC)
Check ur mail - Alison 13:45, 21 Lúnasa 2009 (UTC)

Translation of a short story

Hi my friend!

I would like to request something from you. Yes, translation. I hope, it's not a bad thing for you. Some years ago I wrote a (really) short story about a lonely man (actually symbolized the Saami nation). I translated into some languages and I thought, it would be great to have it more, like also in Gaeilge :) I made this page, the English translation is somewhere there and there is also a Scottish Gaelic. You can put the Gaeilge translation there. Thank you again! Sorry for my disturb... :( - hu:User:Eino81

Hi, Alison

You've got mail... Jonas D. Rand 23:53, 27 Meán Fómhair 2009 (UTC)

If you e-mailed me using Special:Emailuser, please try it again (hopefully you pressed "Save a copy"). I still had my old Cox e-mail address in there. Jonas D. Rand 02:06, 28 Meán Fómhair 2009 (UTC)

And yet another message. Jonas D. Rand 04:53, 5 Deireadh Fómhair 2009 (UTC)

Welcome back!

It's great to see you back actively editing! It hasn't been the same without you! Footyfanatic3000 22:59, 28 Meán Fómhair 2009 (UTC)

lol - míle maith agat, a chara. Tá an-áthas orm chun bheith ar ais arís :) - Alison 01:45, 30 Meán Fómhair 2009 (UTC)

Beta as mooadys ny lettyryn

Haigh Alison, Caidé mar atá tú? Le tamall beag anuas tá mé ag baint úsáide as Béite ar chiclipéid Ghaeilge Mhanann, ach tá sé le feiceáil agam nach bhfuil an leagan againn cosúil leis an leagan ar Vicipéid an Bhéarla. Tá méid an chló níos mó anseo agus ar suíomh Vicipéide Ghaeilge Mhanann ná ar Vicipéid an Bhéarla. An bhfuil fhios agat cén fáth? Agus an bhfuil rud ar bith á dhéanamh ag na forbróirí chun é sin a cheartaigh? GRMA, --MacTire02 09:46, 8 Deireadh Fómhair 2009 (UTC)

  • Haigh, a MhacTÍre :) Táim ar ais arís - sorta! Tuigim anois cad atá ar siúl ar an Vicipéid Mhanann - níl aon téacs formáidiú sa gnáthspás MediaWiki chun an formáid Béite a athrú. Tá ort cuireadh a thabhairt ar 'An Vicí Inúsáidteacht' agus iarratas a chur taobh ansin .... in áit éigin :) Brón orm, ach níl aon taithí agam faoin suíomh sin - Alison 06:16, 9 Deireadh Fómhair 2009 (UTC)
    • Go raibh maith agat, a Alison. An-mhaith feiceáil thú arís ar an Vicipéid. :) --MacTire02 15:36, 9 Deireadh Fómhair 2009 (UTC)


Alison, an bhféadfá rud éigin a dhéanamh faoi Alliebot? Tá sé tar éis imeacht as a mheabhair.Sean an Scuab 12:02, 15 Deireadh Fómhair 2009 (UTC)

Brón orm, a Sheain. Bhí rud éigin mícheart sa cumraíocht an róbó. Tá sí deisithe anois :) - Alison 02:05, 16 Deireadh Fómhair 2009 (UTC)
Go raibh maith agat, a Alison. Cheapas go raibh Alliebot dána ar ais ar an bhfuisce arís. Sean an Scuab 14:04, 16 Deireadh Fómhair 2009 (UTC)


Hi, i think you welcomed me (i cannot read ga) ;-). But the sourcecode at my talkpage looks a bit strange. Why don't you use subst: inside the template? Merlissimo 02:07, 22 Deireadh Fómhair 2009 (UTC)

  • Hi again. Looks like it can't be internally subst'd and I notice the enwiki crowd aren't doing that. From the template source itself;
<!-- Please don't try any includeonly or noinclude:subst tricks here, they won't work! Please make your case on the talk page. -->
... that's not a good sign. I daren't mess with it too much :) - Alison 02:48, 22 Deireadh Fómhair 2009 (UTC)
try {{subst:Plé úsáideora:Merlissimo/Sandbox}} with same parameters as Fáilte. The disadvantage is, that this template can then only be used with subst:, but i think it shouldn't be used without subst: at the moment too. Merlissimo 03:12, 22 Deireadh Fómhair 2009 (UTC)
You can also include an auto sign in the template, so that you havn't to append ~~~~ any more. Syntax with be ~~<includeonly>~~</includeonly> Merlissimo 03:15, 22 Deireadh Fómhair 2009 (UTC)
Thanks, Merlissimo!! I updated the template and it works a treat :) It's mostly used by Úsáideoir:AllieBot these days, and she always signs her name :) Thanks again for the help and for stopping by our small wiki! - Alison 06:12, 22 Deireadh Fómhair 2009 (UTC)
No problem. Perhaphs you like to localize the edits summaries of my bot (Plé úsáideora:MerlLinkBot)? Merlissimo 18:23, 22 Deireadh Fómhair 2009 (UTC)

← Looks like Tameamseo got to them first :) - Alison 23:01, 22 Deireadh Fómhair 2009 (UTC)


Haha, that's a relief - is breá liom m'fhoclóir. ;) Go raibh míle maith agat, a Alison, looking forward to doing some good work around here! - Rob Lindsey 09:16, 24 Deireadh Fómhair 2009 (UTC)


If you think two local test edits are enough i would be glad about the bot flag. Otherwise i'll come back if i have 10-20 edits. It's hard to forsee how many edits of my bot will effect this wiki. This depends on the webmaster of the domains that are linked from this wiki and if i get to know about that. ;-).

p.s. Because you are active on many wikis, perhaps you like my tool "user pages" Merlissimo 16:02, 24 Deireadh Fómhair 2009 (UTC)

Wikipedia user claiming to be underage, lots of personal info

I sent an e-mail address to the last e-mail address that you used to contact me. It regards a user claiming to be under the age of 13, and revealing much more (you said on WR that you would not hesitate to deal with cases like this). The last contact that I had for you was a Gmail address. Since I never got another e-mail from you since, I am making the assumption that you still use it. Please check it, and if I'm on some type of ignore list, remove me and tell me so that I can re-send it. I have looked at the case and so far, no one has taken any action. The user's last edit was quite recent, a little over a week ago, and the info is still on the page. Jonas D. Rand 00:49, 30 Deireadh Fómhair 2009 (UTC)

actually, I just checked and I never got that. Use the email function here and send it on again? Thanks - Alison 01:02, 30 Deireadh Fómhair 2009 (UTC)
I just re-sent it through the Special:Emailuser function. Did you place happydelsim AT on a killfile type block list, or something? About the e-mail address: OK, I won't post it again. By the way, what happened here: ? Is that Emesee's personal board now, where he's free to post nonsense? Jonas D. Rand 01:11, 30 Deireadh Fómhair 2009 (UTC)
Ok, Yes check.svgY Déanta. I had to oversight the page (it's in policy, yes!) as well as revision-hide a now-deleted article. There was an astounding amount of personal info in there! Thanks for looking out for them - I'll leave a message over there, too - Alison 01:22, 30 Deireadh Fómhair 2009 (UTC)
Thank you. Jonas D. Rand 01:24, 30 Deireadh Fómhair 2009 (UTC)

I've sent you another e-mail, about the same thing. Jonas D. Rand 02:11, 30 Deireadh Fómhair 2009 (UTC)

I see you are dealing with BLP1E

Hello, I see you're dealing with "biographies" of people who are only known for one event (en:WP:BLP1E), so could you please look at en:Richard_Blakeley and see if it meets this definition? It definitely seems like it does. As someone who lived in Las Vegas during that time, I didn't even hear about it, so that may give you a clue about the notability of the person. Jonas D. Rand 18:10, 2 Mí na Samhna 2009 (UTC)

Good grief - that article is pure garbage :( Lookit, Jonas, will you not post this stuff here, please? I'm not your trained puppy-dog, and you're not even speaking the correct language here. I'm not here to do your bidding on enwiki. Issues with children and privacy on enwiki - sure. But AfDs? Nope! I'm going to AfD that one anyways, but not on your say-so - Alison 01:33, 3 Mí na Samhna 2009 (UTC)
I wasn't trying to use you to do my bidding. I came to you for an assessment, because I saw that you were dealing with articles that BLP1E applies to, and just came here to see if you agreed that it was completely useless and was a one-event bio. I agree with the move you decided to make, but I wasn't asking you to do that. I also meant to notify you of it, but it was completely your decision to act on it. Jonas D. Rand 03:24, 3 Mí na Samhna 2009 (UTC)
Exactly, for to do otherwise would be to edit on behalf of a banned editor, now wouldn't it? :/ - Alison 03:47, 3 Mí na Samhna 2009 (UTC)

A problem with categories...

On this wiki, we have a problem with how categories are listed at the bottom of the page. When any article has three or more categories, the word "catagóirí" isn't shown at the bottom of the page (an example can be found here). Ca this be fixed? Thanks :) --Footyfanatic3000 23:40, 6 Mí na Samhna 2009 (UTC)

Níl fhios ar bith agam, a Footy, agus is féidir liom an fadhb a fheicint. I'll have a hack around over the weekend and see if we can get it sorted ;) - Alison 06:31, 7 Mí na Samhna 2009 (UTC)
Thanks that would be great! Footyfanatic3000 11:46, 7 Mí na Samhna 2009 (UTC)
Yes check.svgY Déanta - yeah!! - Alison 10:32, 12 Mí na Nollag 2009 (UTC)
Go raibh míle maith agat! --Footyfanatic3000 16:50, 12 Mí na Nollag 2009 (UTC)

Inadvertent revert?

Was this revert (back to a version from July) intentional? Not sure I saw anything wrong/problematic with those intervening edits in Oct and Nov.... Guliolopez 11:02, 11 Mí na Samhna 2009 (UTC)

Urgh!! Note to self: do not read ga.wikipedia on my iPhone. Brón orm! - Alison 11:05, 11 Mí na Samhna 2009 (UTC)

Kilroy Was Here

I would like a reason other than the one given as to why my article was deleted. Yes, I used Google Translate, but so do a lot of the editors who edit wikis for languages not commonly spoken. Please respond, if you can Zobango 15:49, 5 Mí na Nollag 2009 (UTC)

I'm really sorry, but Google machine translations are unacceptable on this wiki as they're simply not good enough and it takes a huge amount of work from folks here to put them right. Currently, it's down to individual admins to make the call to delete or try to rescue but to be honest, Kilroy a bhí anseo had to go. Here's just one sentence;
"Tá an chuma air abairt a bhfuil a tháinig trí Stáit Aontaithe servicemen, bheadh a tharraingt ar an Doodle agus an téacs "Kilroy raibh Seo" ar na ballaí nó in aon áit eile a bhí siad stationed, encamped, nó cuairt"
There's just way too much Béarla in there, the grammar isn't up to scratch at all, and the phraseology is awkward and anglicized. And "Kilroy raibh Seo"??? Cad é sin? Brón orm, ach níl aon rogha agam - Alison 07:14, 10 Mí na Nollag 2009 (UTC)

I understand, but shouldn't there be a tad more lienency due to the lack of fluent Irish speakers? Zobango 13:30, 14 Mí na Nollag 2009 (UTC)

Hi Zobango. Actually we do apply leniency and consideration when reviewing "machine translation" submissions. However, as Alison points out, this case was just too far gone to recover. Some examples:
  • There were far too many non-Irish words in the article. Machine translation or not, a submitter should spot that immediately and try to resolve to the best of their ability.
  • There were inaccuracies/improper suggestions. As Alison points out, people did not write "Kilroy raibh Seo" in graffiti. This text neither makes sense in Irish, nor was it what people actually wrote. (They didn't write the phrase in Irish at all. And certainly not in nonsense Irish. So translating it was not correct). The same could be said for the article title itself. (Note that the Danish, Spanish, French and other wikis reflect this fact correctly and don't "translate" quoted text.)
  • The syntax used for layout and templates was too far gone. As above, stuff that shouldn't have been translated was translated, and stuff that should have been translated wasn't translated. Some of this could have been recovered, but much of the former category included "translations" on reserved syntax. Like template names, <ref> tags, etc. This - again - left much of the content unrecoverable.
Anyway - long story short - we try to be lenient when reviewing machine translations. But if it crosses into unrecoverable patent nonsense, then that's where we draw the line. Guliolopez 14:05, 14 Mí na Nollag 2009 (UTC)

Is fearr Gaeilge briste, ná Béarla cliste

Just to tell you I have corrected a small mistake on your userpage for you. There's no séimhiú on the "h" in Is fearr Gaeilge briste, ná Béarla cliste. --Footyfanatic3000 20:01, 8 Mí na Nollag 2009 (UTC)

Tá an ceart aige. Sílim go bhfuil dul amú ort a Footyfanatic! :) Ainmfhocal baininscneach atá ann. Mar sin, Gaeilge bhriste. Tameamseo 09:06, 10 Mí na Nollag 2009 (UTC)

Teimpléid ilteangacha

Hadn't we better semi-protect, or even fully protect the new templates Teimpléad:lang-en and Teimpléad:lang-ga along with other templates in that category? They are high-risk and won't really need to be edited anyway. --Footyfanatic3000 22:12, 11 Mí na Nollag 2009 (UTC)

Christmas-themed banner for the Príomhleathanach?

Here at User:Footyfanatic3000/Christmas banner I've designed a replacement banner for the Príomhleathanach for use from now until the end of the Christmas season. What do you think? Could we use it, or would it have to be modified? --Footyfanatic3000 18:00, 15 Mí na Nollag 2009 (UTC)

Go raibh míle

Ní raibh mé ró-buartha faoi cruth mo leathanach féin, ach tá sé deas go bhfuil duine ag breathnú air :D . Go raibh míle, caithfidh mé a thuile a foghlaim faoi alt a chur in eagar! Cliste 21:00, 23 Mí na Nollag 2009 (UTC)

Cuir glas ar mo chúntas le do thoil

Hi Alison,

I was wondering if you could to me a favour please. Would it be possible if you could lock my user page and talk page so that only admins could make changes to them, please? I am leaving the Irish wikipedia due to reasons I have outlined on my home page. I will, of course, still be reachable through the Manx wikipedia.

Gura mie mooar ayd,

Agus Yes check.svgY Déanta. Sorry to see you leaving, Mactíre :( Drop me an email if you need unprot or ping me on enwiki, esp. if there's tech stuff that needs sorting over on - beir bua, a chara - Alison 15:00, 24 Mí na Nollag 2009 (UTC)


I sent you another one. I have formed an opinion about who it is, and it's not Johnny the Vandal (didn't think that was very likely anyway, after reviewing it again). Jonas D. Rand 07:28, 29 Mí na Nollag 2009 (UTC)
