== Addition to Template Request ==
== Block request ==
+
I recommend you add [[Windows Live Mail]] to the [[Template:Applications|Applications]] template, either in place of the Outlook Express entry or just as an addition. -[[User:CyndaquilDAC|CyndaquilDAC]] ([[User talk:CyndaquilDAC|talk]])
 
+
:I'm not sure if it has been changed yet, but it seems like it's already there. [[User:Mrfunnylaughs|Mrfunnylaughs]] ([[User talk:Mrfunnylaughs|talk]]) 13:46 UTC, 31/05/2020
Can anyone block the "159.69" range of IP addresses? I think it is unnecessary to block individual IPs in that range. They are inserting spam/promotion and false information (including the "Windows Server 2000" craze) (oh no, I hope I don't get hit by the filter!). --[[Special:Contributions/2.27.117.122|2.27.117.122]] 16:12, 5 May 2019 (UTC)
+
::No, that's Outlook Express. Here's the template I'm refering to, btw [[Template:Applications]] --[[User:CyndaquilDAC|CyndaquilDAC]] ([[User talk:CyndaquilDAC|talk]]) 13:48, 31 May 2020 (UTC)
:No. There is no reason to block a whole /16 range as of now. --[[User:Ryuzaki|Ryuzaki]] ([[User talk:Ryuzaki|talk]]) 16:37, 5 May 2019 (UTC)
+
== Image Replacement Request ==
::Why not? --[[Special:Contributions/2.27.117.122|2.27.117.122]] 16:47, 5 May 2019 (UTC)
+
I recommend you change the placeholder image. Here's the image I recommend, since it encourages editing and contribution. [[File:NewPlaceholderIdea.png|thumb]] -[[User:CyndaquilDAC|CyndaquilDAC]] ([[User talk:CyndaquilDAC|talk]])
:::There is a difference between blocking 1024 IP addresses and 65,535 addresses... --[[User:Ryuzaki|Ryuzaki]] ([[User talk:Ryuzaki|talk]]) 16:50, 5 May 2019 (UTC)
+
:Well, I think that the current image is better than this one. [[User:ToMi|ToMi]] ([[User talk:ToMi|talk]]) 16:46, 28 May 2020 (UTC)
::::Well, can you at least protect the [[Windows Server 2000]] page from creation to prevent any more YusufT19 accounts? {{unsigned|2.27.117.122}}
+
:Actually I have rather been planning to get rid of the placeholder image. I'll see. --<templatestyles src="User:Ryuzaki/Signature/styles.css"/>[[User:Ryuzaki|<span class="signature-ryuzaki-userpage">Ryuzaki</span>]] <span class="signature-ryuzaki-links">([[User talk:Ryuzaki|talk]] | [[Special:Contributions/Ryuzaki|contribs]])</span> 17:43, 28 May 2020 (UTC)

== Wrong link ==
 
 
 
The PearPC link on the main page links to a page called “PeacPC” Is this the intended behavior? {{unsigned|Meow}}
 
:I fixed that a few hours ago. Also please remember to sign your comments with four tildes: <code><nowiki>~~~~</nowiki></code>. --[[User:Ryuzaki|Ryuzaki]] ([[User talk:Ryuzaki|talk]]) 21:15, 10 May 2019 (UTC)
 
::Thanks! [[User:Meow|Meow]] ([[User talk:Meow|talk]]) 00:12, 11 May 2019 (UTC)
 
 
 
== Adding another application ==
 
 
 
Can we please add Opera in the Applications catagory? The page already exists. [[User:Meow|Meow]] ([[User talk:Meow|talk]]) 14:09, 12 May 2019 (UTC)
 
:That page is too short to be linked on the Main Page (and will probably be deleted if nobody shows interest in expanding it), so not for now. Please raise further Main Page topics at the [[Talk:Main Page|proper talk page]] (as you have done earlier) in the future, this is more suited for ban, protection, or similar requests that can't be finished without sysop privileges. --[[User:Ryuzaki|Ryuzaki]] ([[User talk:Ryuzaki|talk]]) 16:27, 12 May 2019 (UTC)
 
 
 
== Automoderated user request ==
 
 
 
Can I be an “Automoderated user” I have not made any vandalism and, well, I don’t hope to anyway.
 
-[[User:Meow|Meow]] ([[User talk:Meow|talk]]) 04:45, 15 June 2019 (UTC)
 
:I am putting this request on hold, as you are a fairly new user and most of your edits were in the user space. Aside from that, I have no problems with promoting you to automoderated. --<templatestyles src="User:Ryuzaki/Signature/styles.css"/>[[User:Ryuzaki|<span class="signature-ryuzaki-userpage">Ryuzaki</span>]] <span class="signature-ryuzaki-links">([[User talk:Ryuzaki|talk]] | [[Special:Contributions/Ryuzaki|contribs]])</span> 09:29, 15 June 2019 (UTC)
 
== Windows 10 Wiki ==
 
Info on that wiki [https://windows10wiki.miraheze.org/wiki/Windows_10 is copypasted] over from here, can we do something about it? (For those who don't know that's a wiki run by the 2 kids Mpillager and Seb0no). --[[User:ATeamInc|ATeamInc]] ([[User talk:ATeamInc|talk]]) 07:56, 19 June 2019 (UTC)
 
:Yes, we already know about it, and tbh it's not gonna last long, those kids are simply incapable of running a wiki. There's not much we can do about it, and it looks like their wiki is pretty much inactive, like most such wikis. [[User:Ovctvct|Ovctvct]] ([[User talk:Ovctvct|talk]]) 08:16, 19 June 2019 (UTC)

:Just managed to get myself blocked from there, and what Ryuzaki said is true, there is only a build list and BLItem templates there at the moment. -[[User:Meow|Meow]] ([[User talk:Meow|talk]]) 19:03, 19 June 2019 (UTC)

== Automoderated user request ==
 
 
 
I think that I am a trusted user. By far, I didn't do any vandalism and I did a good amount of edits. My account is 3 months old(or more). I don't know what to write more. [[User:DrakonchikUA|DrakonchikUA]] ([[User talk:DrakonchikUA|talk]]) 10:44, 30 June 2019 (UTC)

== Automoderated user request ==
 
 
 
Hi. I've been a member of this wiki for nearly a year and did numerous constructive edits to it. Can you please make me an automoderated user? [[User:Windows OS|Windows OS]] ([[User talk:Windows OS|talk]]) 02:20, 8 August 2019 (UTC)

== Add a new abuse filter ==
 
 
 
Please add a new abuse filter that prevents users from adding these files to pages unless they are automoderated users to prevent sockpuppetry by [[Special:Contributions/Rain Ocampo|Rain Ocampo]]:

== The new layout design ==
 
 
 
I have to admit, I am really impressed by this wiki's layout design. The watercolour design is exceptional and makes the site more colourful and less dull. --[[User:Dovelina|Dovelina]] ([[User talk:Dovelina|talk]]) 14:45, 18 November 2019 (UTC)

Addition to Template Request[edit source]

I recommend you add Windows Live Mail to the Applications template, either in place of the Outlook Express entry or just as an addition. -CyndaquilDAC (talk)

I'm not sure if it has been changed yet, but it seems like it's already there. Mrfunnylaughs (talk) 13:46 UTC, 31/05/2020
No, that's Outlook Express. Here's the template I'm refering to, btw Template:Applications --CyndaquilDAC (talk) 13:48, 31 May 2020 (UTC)

Image Replacement Request[edit source]

I recommend you change the placeholder image. Here's the image I recommend, since it encourages editing and contribution.

-CyndaquilDAC (talk)

Well, I think that the current image is better than this one. ToMi (talk) 16:46, 28 May 2020 (UTC)
Actually I have rather been planning to get rid of the placeholder image. I'll see. --Ryuzaki (talk | contribs) 17:43, 28 May 2020 (UTC)
