Welcome!Edit

Hello, Gilldragon, and welcome to English Wikiquote.

Enjoy! ---Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 15:32, 24 February 2016 (UTC)

This template is for new pages that are created here at Wikiquote. Knowing you create pretty good quality articles, could you please link your new pages into this template? Thanks! ---Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 15:33, 24 February 2016 (UTC)

Categories on film articlesEdit

Thank you for your excellent film articles. However, please note that not all categories that exist on Wikipedia also exist here. If a category appears in red rather than blue, please remove it. Otherwise, do keep up the good work!--Abramsky (talk) 14:14, 15 May 2016 (UTC)

WikidataEdit

Hi :) thanks for your contributions. When you create a page, please remember to connect it on Wikidata. For example, when creating King Dinosaur you should go on the corresponding Wikidata item (see King Dinosaur on Wikipedia, on the left column, section "Tools", clic on "Wikidata item"), which is d:Q2190158. Scroll down and edit the "Wikiquote" section, adding the new page ;) in this case I've already added it. Good work, bye. --151.16.234.191 17:22, 20 June 2016 (UTC)

There are robots that handle this sort of thing. Wikidata is not part of Wikiquote, and nobody has to work on the database project unless they particularly want to. ~ Ningauble (talk) 18:58, 20 June 2016 (UTC)
@Ningauble: this is a very strange (and unpolite) answer. Of course I (it was me unlogged) was not forcing him to do anything, just asking him to make something more complete. "Wikidata is not part of Wikiquote", that's right, but Wikiquote is part of Wikidata, meaning that every Wikimedia project is connected with the others through Wikidata. It's like asking someone to wikify their contributions, of course they cannot be imposed to, but it would be way more useful for the project if they did that. Moreover, robots cannot handle this sort of things if there are not interwikis, or in other cases. In a nutshell: just asking. Relax. --Superchilum (talk) 15:26, 30 July 2016 (UTC)
@Ningauble: Saying that "Wikidata is not part of Wikiquote" it's really like asserting that Wikimedia Commons is not part of Wikiquote. They're two different projects, indeed, but they're both part of the same Wikimedia family. Moreover, Commons (as much as Wikidata) provides an underlying function, which is to serve free media (or data) to Wikiquote itself. Nobody should be forced to contribute to other projects if they don't want to, it's true -- but Superchilum's message wasn't about forcing people, rather asking people to just do a couple clicks more to connect this project's pages to other Wikimedia projects' pages through a Wikimedia project. It's really not that difficult, and it would be more than appreciated to not let other volunteers do this job on your behalf. --Sannita (talk) 16:47, 30 July 2016 (UTC)
@ Sannita:  May I ask how a user who had never edited this wiki before was drawn to comment on this user discussion page, or even noticed it? ~ Ningauble (talk) 12:42, 31 July 2016 (UTC)
Well Superchilum, phrases like "please remember to" and "you should" are normally taken to indicate that the user had been remiss and is being directed to comply. This is exactly the kind of language we use to warn a user that they have been breaking our rules and customs; but no Wikiquote policy or guideline requires or even recommends what you are calling for. Hence my brief clarification that this is entirely optional.

I am sorry if you thought my note was too curt, but if you want to ask Wikiquote to adopt this as a standard practice then please propose a guideline to that effect rather than tasking individual contributors in a preemptory tone when they have done nothing wrong. Gilldragon has been doing exemplary work contributing film articles to Wikiquote, wikifying and formatting the pages exactly as indicated in our templates for new article creation, and does not deserve this kind of treatment. ~ Ningauble (talk) 12:42, 31 July 2016 (UTC)

@Ningauble: this is not a "standard practice" for Wikiquote, it is for every Wikimedia project, and I wonder how you don't realize that. Again, if I re-read what I wrote maybe that "please remember" is too direct and it should have been replaced with a more soft form (I'm sorry Gilldragon if I appeared too invasive); but your mistake is to consider Wikiquote totally un-related to the rest of the Wikiworld. I do know that Gilldragon is making a great job, and the first thing I told him is "thanks", but this has nothing to do with my request. If I see someone who does not wikify (in every project) I ask him to wikify, even if he cannot be imposed to; if I see someone who uploads PD images on a local version of Wikipedia, I ask him to upload them on Commons, even if he cannot be imposed to; and the same for Wikidata. But that's it: when I tell you, and you don't do that, I don't keep bothering you, because it's not an imposition. In fact, Gilldragon made an edit on Wikidata after my message, but later he has never done one more. I didn't write him, but I connected them by myself. So, exactly, what "kind of treatment" do you think Gilldragon does not deserve? --Superchilum (talk) 12:55, 31 July 2016 (UTC)
Superchilum, the "kind of treatment" to which I refer was what looked very much like a level-1 user warning. Thank you for clarifying that such was not your intention. As for discussing Wikidata's role generally, unless Gilldragon wants to talk about it I don't think this is the right venue. ~ Ningauble (talk) 13:50, 31 July 2016 (UTC)
I don't even know what a "level-1 user warning" is, but I'm glad things are clearer now :) --Superchilum (talk) 21:49, 31 July 2016 (UTC)

Karen PenceEdit

I have added a "{{prod}}" template to the article Karen Pence, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but it may not satisfy Wikiquote's criteria for inclusion, for the reasons given in the deletion notice (see also "What Wikiquote is not" and Wikiquote's deletion policy).

You may contest the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page. Also, please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Votes for deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. ~ Ningauble (talk) 22:09, 3 February 2017 (UTC)

Good work!Edit

Thank you for creating pages for video game designers! I find it much more informative to read interviews with the production staff than arguing over which quotes from their works to include on game pages, or trying to defend video games in edit summaries as being worth including on the theme pages. CensoredScribe (talk) 05:31, 2 February 2018 (UTC)

Thank you, video game designers are fun people to quote. I agree that it is more straightforward to just make pages for the creators, especially to ward off the abominable deletionists. Your thanks is appreciated very much appreciated! --Gilldragon (talk) 16:41, 3 February 2018 (UTC)
