I am back once again, and I learned my lessons[edit source]

Anyways, can I change my name to inabbidamo? This will make perfect connections between my YT account and Reddit account. I know my real name is Shams. Shams1917 (talk) 23:14, 3 April 2023 (UTC)

nevermind, changed my mind. Keep it as Shams1917. Shams1917 (talk) 23:23, 3 April 2023 (UTC)
Anyway, glad to see you again. 😁 You don't have missed much, though, only less notable things happened in the past since you're absent, aside from my user page and signature and April Fools Day. (No new leaked builds, aside from Win11 Insider, etc.) To the admins: It seems that it's now time to archive the current discussions, as we now reached a total of 26 topics, whereas normally the limit of current topics is 19. - Windows logo (2003).svg Bob2204 Arrow.png Click here to begin.

About unused content and updating empty sites[edit source]

Tell me, is it true that all of the unused content goes against screenshot guidelines? I uploaded some of the unused files to galleries of a few Windows pages, but when I checked a few minutes later, they got deleted by NaraInsider1694 (talk), or better to say, the pages were reverted. Later I read all of the screenshot guidelines and tried to upload one unused photo again, but the page was reverted again for some reason. Also, how I saw, empty pages aren't safe from this. I updated the page of Windows Neptune build 5111.6 by adding some content, but again, everything was reverted. What's the reason for this?— Preceding unsigned comment added by Nduserwin90021 (talkcontribs)

It might be worth taking a few more moments to read stuff. This does not belong here as it's not a request for an administrator action, see the big banner on top of this page. Also, reading the existing Windows Neptune build 5111 article, especially the "Version number" section might provide some hints as to see why your edits were reverted. --Ryuzaki (talk | contribs) 12:41, 13 April 2023 (UTC)
In addition, those unused screenshots do not meet the screenshot guidelines. I am the user who reverted your edits, so I'm sorry if I caused an inconvenience to you. NaraInsider1694 (talk) 13:17, 13 April 2023 (UTC)

Dates in infoboxes[edit source]

So I have set my preferences to show the date in infoboxes as, for example, "23 October 2004" instead of "2004-10-23". However, in the infobox of the Windows 7 page, it displays the support end dates as, for example, "2020-12-15" instead of "15 December 2020". That's because a break point <br> was added to the end of the date to also display the support end date for ESU customers. Even if the break point is replaced with commata or something else, it will display the dates "wrong". Is there a way to fix this in MediaWiki? - Windows logo (2003).svg Bob2204 Arrow.png Click here to begin. Or here. Arrow2.png Talk 14:44, 18 April 2023 (UTC)

Rename account request[edit source]

Can you rename me to "Someone200"? Because the

last time I did this, I got rejected even when the 6-months old requirement meets. So, I'd to have a rename for the first time. I still keep the old name, so for my request in Archive 8 it shouldn't be count as 1 rename. —— Preceding SIGNED comment added by A150.png Someone200 {{Ic fluent person 12 filled.svg talk Ic fluent list 20 filled.svg contribs Ic fluent mail 20 filled.svg email me }} | 11:16, 28 April 2023 (UTC)

The requirement was actually changed to 1 year, and your account was already a year old, so your request should be accepted. NaraInsider1694 (talk) 11:24, 28 April 2023 (UTC)
I'm waiting so long, why doesn't the request accepted? —— Preceding SIGNED comment added by A150.png Someone200 {{Ic fluent person 12 filled.svg talk Ic fluent list 20 filled.svg contribs Ic fluent mail 20 filled.svg email me }} | 09:49, 16 May 2023 (UTC)
Done. --Ryuzaki (talk | contribs) 10:59, 16 May 2023 (UTC)

Username Change #2[edit source]

Ignore the other one, Anyways can I change my username to "ShamsBetas"? My user account is six months old, and for first rename it used to be 5 months old. Anyways, this will represent me in betas. (not trying to copy Someone200 I was planning to do it but I forgot so after Someone200 changed his username I remembered back) Shams1917 (talk) 10:53, 16 May 2023 (UTC)

Your first edit was not even 3 months ago. ❌ Denied. --Ryuzaki (talk | contribs) 10:59, 16 May 2023 (UTC)
Because I didnt know that I can make edits at that time. Ill wait a year this time. I'm not angry or anything i would still keep it for 1 year. Shams1917 (talk) 11:07, 16 May 2023 (UTC)

I think it's now time[edit source]

I think we gave too much time for Deborahh1995. Just like Someone200 said, they could be a bot, that makes well-redundant edits with the ever same description of "New changes". If I would be an admin, I would block them months ago. - Windows logo (2003).svg Bob2204 Arrow.png Click here to begin. Or here. Arrow2.png Talk - 15:34, 28 May 2023 (UTC)

Yeah, if I was a mod, could have blocked him immediately. Shams1917 (talk) 15:36, 28 May 2023 (UTC)
But you're not an admin. If you have a problem with Deborrah's edits, bring it up on their talk page first. --Ryuzaki (talk | contribs) 16:24, 28 May 2023 (UTC)
Weird thing is sometimes, but rarely Deborahh says normally. Like the revision 264796 of Windows 11 (original release) and the revision 251276 of Internet Explorer 5. Sometimes Deborahh are a bot, but sometimes a human. I'm getting confused. —— Preceding SIGNED comment added by A150.png Someone200 {{Ic fluent person 12 filled.svg talk Ic fluent list 20 filled.svg contribs Ic fluent mail 20 filled.svg email me }} | 08:39, 29 May 2023 (UTC)
Maybe we can block them with the reason "Addition of repetitive content". - Windows logo (2003).svg Bob2204 Arrow.png Click here to begin. Or here. Arrow2.png Talk - 11:41, 28 June 2023 (UTC)
That is something an abuse filter would do and besides what is up with all the blocking talk? First when you trigger the filter it at first gives you a warning but when you trigger it again you only get blocked from editing! "Common vandalism" does the same exact thing as the former title. 2601:981:4401:1CC0:650A:17B5:DA34:A7EC 09:42, 17 July 2023 (UTC)
About the blocking talk, Deborahh1995 is known for making redundant edits and some people like me hate them. NaraInsider1694 (talk) 09:51, 17 July 2023 (UTC)

Yup also I gained a new behavior which is no longer spamming talk pages and using them as an instant messaging service also like me and User:Ryuzaki said the first rule is to be civil to other users which you have broken twice in the section I recently edited according to Ryuzaki. 11:28, 2 August 2023 (UTC)

more like you gained your old behavior of spamming discussion pages... NaraInsider1694 (talk) 11:32, 2 August 2023 (UTC)

Sorry about that also I calmed down. 00:29, 4 August 2023 (UTC)

Block Freepornsex[edit source]

As its name states. Unacceptable username. 🤦 - Windows logo (2003).svg Bob2204 Arrow.png Click here to begin. Or here. Arrow2.png Talk - 16:19, 28 May 2023 (UTC)

He got blocked. NitroGD 16:31, 28 May 2023 (UTC)

Why have there been so many unacceptable usernames on BetaWiki this is so berserk maybe a new abuse filter could help with more preventing of it. If I see another inappropriate username I will report it here. So the user can get blocked by an administrator such as User:BF10 or so. 14:11, 8 June 2023 (UTC)

Besides that is not cool😡. 14:14, 8 June 2023 (UTC)

And that makes me very angry when a new user like that does such a thing they need more banning done to them and it is getting old this type of stuff like an inappropriate username really needs a new abuse filter so that it can be prevented. 09:51, 14 June 2023 (UTC)

If I catch any user like this one again naming himself/herself an inappropriate username I am going to report them. And they will have an indefinitely long time of a ban/block by an admin like User:BF10, User:Ryuzaki, and/or User:JaGoTu who is also the founder of this wiki BetaWiki! So I am here to give one last warning to anybody who creates an inappropriate username for themselves😡. 10:01, 14 June 2023 (UTC), unacceptable usernames are those accounts, which are believed to be used only for vandalism. That's why those accounts are unacceptable. 18:14, 19 June 2023 (UTC)

Ok, I get it now I just didn't like this strange unacceptable behavior. Besides how did you see this message? 13:21, 25 June 2023 (UTC)

Ok but I wish a better abuse filter would be created when it is created set the setting to block. 13:48, 25 June 2023 (UTC)

I hate them too but sometimes it needs more banning done to user who made the unacceptable username plus why do you think this wiki needs an abuse filter to disallow it? 2601:981:4401:1CC0:650A:17B5:DA34:A7EC 09:37, 17 July 2023 (UTC)

Featured article/2023-07 proposal[edit source]

Here's my proposal for next month's featured article. I accidentally published it before contacting you, sorry for the hassle.

Windows 11 build 21380 is the earliest available build of Windows 11, which was first shown running on an Acer Aspire Vero prototype, which was first demonstrated during the 2021 Hong Kong Computer and Communications Festival. The build was obtained by BetaWorld members and uploaded to the aforementioned website on 8 June 2023 and was shared publicly two days later via the BetaWorld Blog.

This build is one out of many known builds to be compiled from a branch with the fs prefix. The prefix stands for Firesteel, the codename for an internal Microsoft self-hosting effort related to Windows 11 development. It is currently the earliest available build to replace the older flag first introduced in Windows 8 with a new flat design (similar to the 2012 Microsoft logo); however, the old design is still present in certain areas presented within the build.

Maybe, featured articles of 2023-07 should be either Windows Embedded 8:
or Windows Embedded 8.1:
Windows 8.1 Embedded-2018-11-16-15-02-23.png
because they will reach the end of support next month. 09:57, 15 June 2023 (UTC)
I more likely think that BF10 will create a "Featured article" about the recently shared Windows 11 build 21380. - Windows logo (2003).svg Bob2204 Arrow.png Click here to begin. Or here. Arrow2.png Talk - 10:08, 15 June 2023 (UTC)
I don't think why the featured article of 2023-07 should be Windows 11 build 23180. Contact BF10 or another administrator to discuss a featured article of 2023-07. 11:50, 15 June 2023 (UTC)
Welp, Windows Embedded versions are too obscure and we don't need to feature an article about Windows Embedded just because it lost its support on <insert EOS date here>. NaraInsider1694 (talk) 12:05, 15 June 2023 (UTC)

Zenphia1, the featured article of 2023-07 is Windows XP build 2210, see BetaWiki:Featured article/2023-07. 14:13, 26 June 2023 (UTC)

In addition, Windows 11 build 21380 has been chosen for August: BetaWiki:Featured article/2023-08. --Tobi (talk) 12:15, 28 June 2023 (UTC)[edit source]

Can i translate BetaWiki into Spanish?[edit source]

I can't translate pages into Spanish at the moment, but it would be cool to have BetaWiki available in both English and Spanish. Plus, i know Spanish very well. --Sami999999

BetaWiki is an English-only community, and there's currently no plan to make the wiki multilingual. NaraInsider1694 (talk) 12:27, 3 July 2023 (UTC)
But is there a way to make a Simple English edition of Betawiki (in a case for those people who are learning English?) 10:22, 5 July 2023 (UTC)
No, and it will never be implemented because websites generally use professional-sounding English and not simple English. NaraInsider1694 (talk) 11:10, 5 July 2023 (UTC)
We don't currently plan on carrying official translations (and that includes Simple English), but there is no restriction on unofficial ones as long as they give appropriate credit in accordance with CC-BY-SA 4.0. --Ryuzaki (talk | contribs) 10:18, 17 July 2023 (UTC)

Same here. 11:25, 2 August 2023 (UTC)

This is the dumbest question I have ever seen you cannot translate this wiki to Spanish this is an English wiki and always will be so if I catch you translating I will report you to admins and they will block you from editing so you better watch out at what you're doing IP. 2601:981:4401:1CC0:650A:17B5:DA34:A7EC 09:33, 17 July 2023 (UTC)

Why did you have the thought to even ask a question like this? The guidelines of the wiki say that this cannot be translated to Spanish even if you know it very well. 2601:981:4401:1CC0:650A:17B5:DA34:A7EC 09:35, 17 July 2023 (UTC)

Where do you even see that in the Guidelines? Now I do see that the first rule is to be civil to other users, which you have broken at least twice in this section. --Ryuzaki (talk | contribs)

According to User:Ryuzaki you should be civil to other users even if they can't translate BetaWiki into Spanish and that isn't even a guideline to translate the wiki so for this you got blocked for 6 months and I gave you a warning on my talk page, the community portal, and now the administrators noticeboard so I don't want any more of this to continue!😠 11:25, 2 August 2023 (UTC)

And being civil to other users is the very first guideline you should obey and these guidelines include being civil to other users like I said before, not using it as an instant messaging service, and even other guidelines so you disobeyed the first two I mentioned in this section especially the important ones that why you got blocked until January 17, 2024. 11:32, 2 August 2023 (UTC)
