Automoderated user request[edit source]

Can I please be automoderated user? By so far, I didn't do any vandalism, and I made a lot of edits. BGRComputers.co (talk) 00:59, 13 August 2021 (UTC)

Alright, I have been waiting for the rest of the month and no replies from any admin. And I did not vandalize, but I assumed good faith. Can I be an automoderated user please? BGRComputers.co (talk) 23:40, 1 September 2021 (UTC)
Automoderated hasn't been relevant in years lol --Ryuzaki (talk | contribs) 00:01, 2 September 2021 (UTC)
What's that supposed to mean? Xeno has become an automoderated user on 14 June 2021. BGRComputers.co (talk) 00:14, 2 September 2021 (UTC)
Okay, I have been waiting and some users become automoderated users this year, and I trusted to be one. I still made good edits. Can I please become an automoderated user? Bubblebeam (talk) 13:45, 28 December 2021 (UTC)

Delete this page.[edit source]

When I was redesigning my user page and testingrooms, I accidently created the page User:User:Orangera1n/testingrooms/testingroom2 — Preceding unsigned comment added by Orangera1n (talkcontribs)

About file uploads[edit source]

Ok so I want to add sounds (Startup, Shutdown, Error, and other sounds) To pages like Windows XP in a collapsible area, but the problem is that you aren't able to upload .ogg or .MP3 files, so unless there is another way, please fix this! Beta Kiwi (Talk) Choose 14:59, 1 September 2021 (UTC)

Perhaps it would be a better idea to consult this with other users first than just telling us to fix it? --Ryuzaki (talk | contribs) 15:03, 1 September 2021 (UTC)
There's really no need to do this. We're a beta wiki, not a sounds wiki. Orbitron (talk) 16:28, 1 September 2021 (UTC)
also sounds are copyrighted and can likely fuck us up. -Gamerappa (talk) 16:56, 1 September 2021 (UTC)
Well I have and Idea, how about we only add beta sounds (EX: NT 5.0), Or we can add fake sounds such as (EX: Longhorn Sounds), or both, its really up to you guys. (Im under 17, so dont swear) Beta Kiwi (Talk) Choose 21:50, 1 September 2021 (UTC)
"we can add fake sounds" why would we do that lmao Orbitron (talk) 21:50, 1 September 2021 (UTC)
Who Cares? We can Just add them into the pages because why not? Actually the point is to explain "Software History" so why not add this so people know what the sounds sound like (for some reason) Beta Kiwi (Talk) Choose 21:53, 1 September 2021 (UTC)
Like Orbitron said, we document betas, not sounds. There are tons of videos that showcase them so there's no point in us documenting them here when people can just look them up on YouTube. Jurta (talkcontribs) 22:03, 1 September 2021 (UTC)

Move this into the Community portal. --Ryuzaki (talk | contribs) 22:19, 1 September 2021 (UTC)

I no longer want to use the name Norman anymore. Can someone please change it to MikeShinoda2001 for me please? It is September now. formerly known as Norman 07:06, 2 September 2021 (UTC)

Wouldn't this end up the same as the BenjiMadden name where you didn't want it anymore after a short while.. --AhmadB (talk) 09:27, 2 September 2021 (UTC)

Hello, I was wondering if I could change my name to Byron if it is currently available because I have not seen it and probably didn't realize I could use it as my name. Thank you! - Byronbytes

Hey, I would like my username to be changed from "BGRComputers.co" to "Bubblebeam". Also, although I still like my old current name, but I wanted my user name to be changed to the latter please. BGRComputers.co (talk) 22:57, 3 September 2021 (UTC)

The site is broken.[edit source]

I notice the UI portion of the site is partially broken. Orangera1n (Talk | contribs) 23:15, 6 September 2021 (UTC)"

the site isn't broken, this is a visual glitch coming ethier from your browser or because your LTE is struggling. -Gamerappa (talk) 23:40, 6 September 2021 (UTC)
The site isn't broken - it's on your end. Notice that you have 2 bars of LTE. The CSS just hasn't loaded in yet. - Rhinozz (talk) 23:42, 6 September 2021 (UTC)
i get the same problem as orangera1n when i switch to desktop mode MShinoda8768 00:09, 7 September 2021 (UTC)
Switch to the Vector theme in the settings for a brief moment and make sure "Use legacy Vector" is enabled. Then switch back to watercolor. This should fix the issue. --Cvolton (talk | contribs) 00:18, 7 September 2021 (UTC)

I fixed it Orangera1n (Talk | contribs) 00:43, 7 September 2021 (UTC)

Questions[edit source]

We should have a page to ask questions, Ill give and example of a wiki question: "Am I allowed to make a page called User:Beta Kiwi/Windows 4.0?" Another page (or the same page) Could be dedicated to Windows Questions such as: "Why is Windows Neptune 5111.6 Not Listed?". If not, I may make one on my page, still deciding if it should be in a testing room, or something else -Beta Kiwi (Talk) Choose 01:16, 9 September 2021 (UTC)

Rename[edit source]

Short story: I want to be Renamed to: Beta -Beta Kiwi (Talk) Choose 21:50, 9 September 2021 (UTC)

❌ Your account would be eligible on age alone, but considering you didn't actually start contributing to the wiki until a few weeks ago, I will not rename your account until 2 March 2022. Not to mention the chosen username is quite generic. --Ryuzaki (talk | contribs) 20:57, 15 September 2021 (UTC)

User account rename request[edit source]

First request (withdrawn)[edit source]

Can one of the admins please change my user name to WinInsider? WinInsider (talk) 01:17, 11 September 2021 (UTC) (Nara Insider) [EDIT: This message is being copied and pasted by a fucking user, so I reworded it. WinInsider (talk) 08:48, 19 September 2021 (UTC)]

❌ Your account is not eligible until 24 November. --Ryuzaki (talk | contribs) 20:57, 15 September 2021 (UTC)
Okay. I'll wait until the date you mentioned. WinInsider (talk) 13:59, 17 September 2021 (UTC)

Oh no. The renaming process might take a bit longer than expected. WinInsider (talk) 06:38, 24 November 2021 (UTC)

I need to withdraw this request. WinInsider (talk) 08:11, 29 November 2021 (UTC) [EDIT: THE 66 GUY!?!? --Nara66 (talk) 04:05, 12 January 2022 (UTC)]

Second request[edit source]

Please remane my account.[edit source]

Hello. Could you change my nickname to "captainlinux8880"? Thanks. People (talk) 18:52, 12 September 2021 (UTC)

✔️ Renamed and removed your old alt account in the process. --Ryuzaki (talk | contribs) 20:56, 15 September 2021 (UTC)

Please remove my username as I'm leaving this account.[edit source]

I'm leaving this account right now after I create this message, so can a admin remove my username? I'm going to edit using my IP address until October 5 when Windows 11 releases and I make screenshots of installation. Wabbah (talk) 18:17, 15 September 2021 (UTC)Wabbah (leaving soon)

...and then you created a new account and got banned because you broke a guideline... why bother? (yes i know he's not able to reply to this lol) -Gamerappa (talk) 18:54, 15 September 2021 (UTC)

Delete User talk:我是王牌66.[edit source]

Can you delete User talk:我是王牌66 again? I don't need this anymore because currently I don't accept any discussions. --创世的蔷薇 (talkcontribs) 14:50, 17 September 2021 (UTC)

No. -Overdoze (talk) 16:31, 17 September 2021 (UTC)
mfw this 66 kid isn't blocked, he seems to hate criticisms for absoultely no reason what so ever. -Gamerappa (talk) 16:59, 17 September 2021 (UTC)
I don't need this page anymore, because it was created by someone else after being deleted for the first time. I want to delete it again, so that I can create a page according to a template page. Please be assured that after this, I will not make any deletion request to my user discussion page. And I won't remove any more messages. --创世的蔷薇 (talkcontribs) 23:48, 17 September 2021 (UTC)
...so we're supposed to delete your talk page just so you can create it again? Yeah no. --Ryuzaki (talk | contribs) 23:51, 17 September 2021 (UTC)
Yes, yes. After deleted I will recreate. Please be assured that after this, I will not make any deletion request to my user discussion page. And I won't remove any more messages. --创世的蔷薇 (talkcontribs) 23:53, 17 September 2021 (UTC)
Why can't you just blank the page at that point? Orbitron (talk) 23:57, 17 September 2021 (UTC)
They want the edit history gone for some stupid reason 60.241.87.109 00:01, 18 September 2021 (UTC)
I need to delete the page, because the previous two discussion pages were created by others. I hope to create a discussion page with a template again, which will become more popular. --创世的蔷薇 (talkcontribs) 08:42, 18 September 2021 (UTC)
It doesn't matter. You can blank it and replace the content.
By the way, can admins delete my userpage, please? ToMi (talk | contribs) 08:47, 18 September 2021 (UTC)
Everyone else used to create this discussion page. I hope to clear the history and prove my reputation. My reputation means that this discussion was also created by myself. Please hurry up, this is the last time to delete the discussion page. --粉红豹 (talkcontribs) (我是王牌66) 08:49, 18 September 2021 (UTC)
First of all, the first theory is that I have already said Overdoze's reminder. Instead of refusing or disobeying the warning, I archived it, it also means that I know the reminder. The second theory is that I want to delete the history by deleting the page, so that I can recreate the page myself. I don't like people creating my discussion page at will to harass me. --粉红豹 (talkcontribs) (我是王牌66) 08:55, 18 September 2021 (UTC)
This is the last time to delete the discussion page. I want to create it myself, because that user has created the meeting for me, and I promise to make it the last time. --粉红豹 (talkcontribs) (我是王牌66) 15:08, 18 September 2021 (UTC)
Nobody's harassing you whatsoever, they are simply asking you basic questions, and yet, you decide to flip out because you were asked one basic thing. And then, when you were warned for repeatedly asking for your user talk page to be deleted, you immediately replaced that with the same template that they were warning you about. Jurta (talkcontribs) 15:14, 18 September 2021 (UTC)

The deletion policy has been clarified in that user talk pages are not eligible for quick deletion. We are certainly not deleting pages just so you can recreate them yourself, that and this discussion is merely a waste of our time we could have spent on more productive things. This matter is now closed. --Ryuzaki (talk | contribs) 15:12, 18 September 2021 (UTC)

I really guarantee the last time. This is because another user helped me to create the discussion page. I like to create my own discussion page and help me create the discussion page. Obviously, I made it clear before that I would not accept any discussion. I really guarantee that this will not happen again.
Delete as soon as possible, I really promise the last time. If others create their own discussion page, my page was created by others first. I hope to recreate the page by myself, which means that the history is cleared, so it can be solved by quick deletion. --粉红豹 (talkcontribs) (我是王牌66) 15:17, 18 September 2021 (UTC)
why are you still going with this... like why are you so desperate to get the edit history removed 60.241.87.109 15:20, 18 September 2021 (UTC)
Actually, I already stated at the end of August that I would not accept any discussion, but I wanted to help reach a consensus by deleting the page in September. After deleting the page, that user must help me create a page to add new discussion. Actually, when I saw that user appeal the build macOS Mojave build 18F2057, I removed his message and claimed that I would not accept any discussion. Please delete it quickly, and really guarantee the last time. --粉红豹 (talkcontribs) (我是王牌66) 15:28, 18 September 2021 (UTC)

This request was withdrawn. --粉红豹 (talkcontribs) (我是王牌66) 21:07, 21 November 2021 (CST)

It was rejected long before you withdrew it... --Ryuzaki (talk | contribs) 13:37, 22 November 2021 (UTC)

Please delete my user page and this CSS. --Nara Insider (talk) 07:24, 10 January 2022 (UTC)

Im pretty sure that its impossible to delete a user page, and why do you need to delete it? do you not want to put a single fact about yourself? -Beta Kiwi 01:04, 12 January 2022 (UTC)

Request: Inability to edit pages[edit source]

If I edit the pages too much and for a long time, the system will not allow I to do this and will display the following error: "This action has been automatically identified as harmful, and therefore disallowed. If you believe your action was constructive, please inform an administrator of what you were trying to do. A brief description of the abuse rule which your action matched is: Don't link drafts from main space". What is the reason for this and how can it be corrected? Thanks. Captainlinux8880 (talk)

Nice try, but editing your comment to make it look like you're not Nara isn't going to fool anybody. Jurta (talkcontribs) 12:15, 24 January 2022 (UTC)
This is Nara Insider's main IP address. The user was banned, but the IP wasn't banned. I am Nara Insider. --103.155.246.47 12:51, 24 January 2022 (UTC)
Apologizing for getting banned is not going to make you unbanned. It'll be just waste of time. Also, there's a chance to make things even worse. As I know, unbanning process only happens when Abuse Filter bans an account and if it's false positive. But your ban is not both of them. So, you have to wait until your ban expires. Mbczadgjliqetup (talkcontribs) 13:08, 24 January 2022 (UTC)
