Confirmed flag for Mazzaz[edit | edit source]

Hello. Can an administrator grant me the confirmed flag. I am triggered by filters and I need to solve the CAPTCHA when I try to save the edit which included any external link. In addition to this, I would also like to use twinkle for my own convenience and betterment of FAMEPedia. Thanks, Mazzaz (talk) 01:32, 2 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

New users[edit | edit source]

I have experienced from the past few days that whenever a new user creates any article, they add {{Good article}} and {{Featured article}} to that article. I don't know why everyone is doing that but I think we may need to create an edit filter that will stop new users (less than 100 or 50 edits) and IP's to add those templates to the articles. What do others think? ~ Mazzaz (talk) 16:35, 7 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Hm. maybe send a mass-message to the users who add them, and/or warn the users that add it. Bukkit (talk) 19:30, 12 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Mazzaz and Bukkit: I'm unsure if there's a way to restrict users from adding a template to a page. But according to Bukkit above, wenkigjt just send mass message to them or something.
But, well I believe when we have much experience editors, volunteers and admins we could curb that stuff of this encyclopedia. Chimobi (talk) 19:36, 12 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Yeah. Also, I'm thinking of maybe making a redwarn for FAMEPedia. Bukkit (talk) 19:39, 12 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
You mean the FP:RedWarn? Chimobi (talk) 19:40, 12 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Hm, we already have one? Bukkit (talk) 19:45, 12 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Not installed yet though. Chimobi (talk) 19:51, 12 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
