Massinissa of the Rif[edit]

(Sorry for my english, i'm french) Hello. I think someone have to read Massinissa of the Rif. This page will be (perhaps) deleted on WP:fr : and has benne deleted on Wp:en : I think the subject is a joke with a spam on many wiki, as here. Cheers.

Thanks for pointing this out - I have reviewed and nominated the page for deletion. ~ UDScott (talk) 14:36, 1 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Help in creating new wikiquote pages for films[edit]

Hello @UDScott,

Happy holidays! I admire your contributions to the English Wikiquote. I'm eager to delve into other sections, specifically films and literary works, and believe you're the ideal person to guide me. How can I initiate this process? Where should I begin gathering sources? Would it be possible for you to mentor me?

I eagerly await your response.

Warm regards. Ebubechukwu1 (talk) 17:37, 29 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sure, I can offer some support and help. The first place I would send you is Help:Starting a new page - which is an easy way to create new pages that automatically places the correct template on the new page for you to begin working with. This should help reduce any necessary cleanup of your new pages as you create them. As for sources, the best is the film or literary work itself. Users often use sites like imdb, but be forewarned that such sites are not always 100% accurate - and they often do not have quotes in the exact order in which they appear in a film. ALso, be mindful of the number of quotes from a film that you include - not everything needs to be quoted (and see WQ:Limits on quotations for some guidance on how many to include). Once you get started, I can offer some more specific suggestions as appropriate, based on your additions. Good luck! ~ UDScott (talk) 14:31, 1 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Need some help.[edit]

Incredibly unrelated but could you please tell this user ( to unblock me, I've sent a unblock request. (Side note I sent this to another person so if he gets a similar message regarding this then please state beforehand that any spam attempt was not intended.) 2603:6000:B800:EB4:31C8:BE4:7D2A:305A 21:27, 19 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sorry, I have nothing to do with any blocks on Wikipedia. I suggest you take it up there. ~ UDScott (talk) 11:52, 20 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Please return Draft:Jenny Bryan[edit]

Please return Draft:Jenny Bryan. I was half-way through working on it, and thought that, similarly to wikipedia draft space was the place to do so. Is that not the case? Newystats (talk) 08:29, 27 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I've undeleted it - sorry it did not have the appearance of a legitimate page, but yes you are correct, draft space is for working on not-yet-ready pages. ~ UDScott (talk) 14:01, 27 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
