Re: #Shesaid drive NigeriaEdit

Ciao. I think for a start you can add in Wikiquote:SheSaid/RedLists a section with a list of important Nigerian female people that don't have a page on Wikiquote yet.--Spinoziano (talk) 09:06, 22 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Spinoziano: I will start working on that. I am thinking of applying for a grant to host an edit-a-thon where participants will be taught how to edit on Wiki Quotes for the #Shesaid campaign. Plus I think a lot of female students here will be interested in it. I will also create a social media group where the participants will be added. I am thinking of a long term impact. Editors that participate in the edit-a-thon will be followed up on so even after the edit-a-thon, they will keep on editing related articles. What do you think? Prithee P (talk) 09:20, 22 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

They seem to me good ideas. If it helps, I will participate sometime, even if my English is not the best, and I am not a female. --Spinoziano (talk) 11:39, 22 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Spinoziano Hi, I look forward to you helping out. A lot of people are enthusiast about it (male and female editors). Even tho it hasn't started, i taught someone how to create a page on Wikiquote yesterday. Thank you for your help so far. I will share you the link to the #SheSaid Nigeria page later.

Merging of Uche Jumbo/Uche JomboEdit

Hi Prithee P,

I just discovered that you have suggested the Merging of Uche Jumbo/Uche Jombo on 11 December 2021. I wonder if others can benefit from the experience you have gained about merging articles. For example how did you discover the existence of both articles, how you discovered the template {{mergeto}}, did anyone merge these articles as a result of placing the template, etc.

Will you post something about it on Wikiquote talk:SheSaid? Thanks in advance, Ottawahitech (talk) 15:58, 16 December 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]


I apologize for not responding earlier. Trust you enjoyed the holidays?

I hosted an event on the English Wikiquote. I went through all the articles created during the event as some needed improvement. I listed them on the Meta page so you can find the articles there

I look forward to hearing from you.
Happy new year. Prithee P (talk) 10:20, 10 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Your userpage on WikiquoteEdit

Hi Prithee P,

I just happened to notice that your WQ-userpage has a deadlink (Wiki Loves Sustainable Development Goals Nigeria) and thought you may appreciate being notified. cheers, Ottawahitech (talk) 15:21, 29 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi Thank you for notifying me. I appreciate it. I will check and correct it.

Stop making speedy deletion nominationsEdit

Please stop making speedy deletion nominations with immediate effect. At least some, if not all, of the articles you have nominated are not candidates for speedy deletion. Quite frankly any further nominations like that will likely get you blocked. Would you like to care to explain your actions? -- User:Djm-leighpark(a)talk 07:10, 28 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi, I led a Shesaid campaign and the articles I nominated are articles created during the edit-a-thon. Prithee P (talk) 07:53, 28 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I won't nominate any article any further as you advised.

However, the articles were created by editors I taught to edit on Wikiquote and some of them need clean up. For now, I won't nominate any article for deletion. Thank you for informing me {replyto|Djm-leighpark} Prithee P (talk) 07:57, 28 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Djm-leighpark Prithee P (talk) 12:39, 28 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It is the use of WQ:Speedy deletion which is the real problem. An administration will expect that to be a correct nomination of something that is irretrievably broken. The alternatives of Wikiquote:Proposed deletion and WQ:VFD are softer and allow 7 days notice for the user and/or community to try and fix things and if you study my contributions (which may not be the best example or practice), you will see that is how I work, albeit I am working from a status of notability in terms of deletion nominations (and your teaching on Notability requirements may well have been excellent otherwise I would have followed the speedied removals by VfDs). Hopefully most people can be trained to stop making formatting problems so that should rarely be a reason to delete. In terms of the WP:Quotability guidelines I am very weak/uncertain in the "Quotability" area and would want to leave that to others. You may also wish to read Wikiquote talk:SheSaid#Article deletions. Thankyou. -- User:Djm-leighpark(a)talk 13:09, 28 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

December 2022Edit

  Hello, I'm Ferien. I noticed that you recently removed content from Lilian Afegbai without adequately explaining why. In the future, it would be helpful to others if you described your changes to Wikiquote with an accurate edit summary. If this was a mistake, don't worry; the removed content has been restored. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks. --Ferien (talk) 12:17, 28 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

hi, thank you for the correction. However, the edit was not a mistake
I will take corrections and include a more detailed summary in the future@Ferien Prithee P (talk) 12:38, 28 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
