Hello, I am also known as Mathewignash on Wikipedia. Because they started deleting many fictinal characters from Wikipedia as non-notable, I started copying the deleted ones to WikiAlpha. Mathewignash 15:47, 3 July 2011 (MDT)

Hey Matt, awesome job on all those Transformers articles. Just thought I might ask if you know anyone else on Wikipedia who might be interested in WikiAlpha. If so, maybe you could put in a good word for us and send them this way :). We're trying to expand as fast as possible at the moment. Cheers Richard 17:33, 9 July 2011 (MSD)

Creative Commons licensing

There's a point that's been made on Wikipedia that it's not legal to take Creative Commons licensed stuff there and describe it as public domain here. The approach some people seem to have taken is to put {{wp-cca}} at the top of such pages. Of course, if you wrote the whole page yourself this isn't necessary. I am just a visitor here and I can't tell you what to do, but it seemed like a fair idea. Wnt (talk) 01:43, 20 July 2011 (MSD)

Most of the articles I copied over are deleted, and the majority of the text is from me, but since they did appear on Wikipedia, and most had at least some contributions by other editors, I will add the tage as requested. Feel free to add that tag to any I miss, if they came from Wikipedia and someone is concerned about them, I have no objection. One problem though is that all the articles I moved over to Wikialpha are NOT in their original form, I've continued to update and edit them. I'm not sure if that needs to me mentioned in your tag. Perhaps say they are simply based on an artcicle originally appearing on Wikipedia?Mathewignash (talk) 03:06, 20 July 2011 (MSD)
I think the text in the tag might be fine-tuned a little, but I can't edit it, and in any case it's not that bad as is. Wnt (talk) 18:21, 21 July 2011 (MSD)

Thanks both of you. So I can just block User:Robertsmith for being a spambot then? Mathewignash (talk) 03:00, 19 August 2011 (MSD)
Yep, all good. Richard (talk) 03:39, 19 August 2011 (MSD)

Hi Mathew. Thanks for the help on the article and getting the citation template. It's much appreciated. Web (talk) 08:06, 25 August 2011 (MSD)


Hey Matt, just letting you know about the new Save Article feature I've written for WikiAlpha. Feel free to use it whenever you need :) Govind (talk) 03:52, 5 December 2011 (MSK)

Hi Mathew

Hi Mathew. Long time no see. Thanks for keeping things running here. It looks like you may have accidently undid part of a conversation I was having with User:Rich Farmbrough. I asked Rich if he'd come over and help with the template stuff here and he's been gracious enough to help. Anyhoo, I undid your undo. Hope you don't mind. Kind regards.

  • Sorry, sometimes my finger slips on my tablet. Mathewignash (talk) 14:45, 6 June 2012 (MSD)
No problem. I'm really glad you've been keeping things going here. There's some conversations going on over at WikiAlpha:Community portal, if you'd like to join in. Thanks. Web (talk) 15:11, 6 June 2012 (MSD)

Can you delete a page, please?

Hi Mathew. Could you delete Emplate:User 1000/doc for me please? I screwed up and typed "Emplate:User 1000/doc" instead of "Template:User 1000/doc". Thanks for the help. Web (talk) 10:37, 6 June 2012 (MSD)
