Adding categories to Shirly Temple article


Hi Vilho-Veli

I noticed you added several categories to the page on Shirley Temple and was wondering where you found the information. For example how do you know she was a methodist? Cheers, Ottawahitech (talk) 02:52, 22 April 2020 (UTC)Reply

Hello Ottawahitech!
Found the information from en-Wikipedia's categories.--Vilho-Veli (talk) 13:37, 22 April 2020 (UTC)Reply
Wouldn't it be better to add this info to wikiquote before adding the cat? What happens if someone changes the information on wikipedia? Just wondering. Ottawahitech (talk) 00:06, 16 October 2020 (UTC)Reply
Well, we'll just update - like when someone dies.--Vilho-Veli (talk) 00:05, 17 October 2020 (UTC)Reply
Hi again, I am continuing to see categories added that may or may not be appropriate. I find it is very time consuming to try and check what the enwiki article says about it. As an example, take Thierry Baudet who is included in category:Dutch academics. I tried finding out why this politician is considered an academic, but it is too time consuming. What is your opinion?
Just curious. Cheers, Ottawahitech (talk) 22:15, 26 November 2020 (UTC)Reply
Leiden university faculty. By the way, English Wikipedia has a jungle of categories (and many missing ones). I'm capable to add there only
 birth years and places.--Vilho-Veli (talk) 22:31, 26 November 2020 (UTC)Reply

Using hotcat


Hi Vilho-Veli,

I noticed that you add a lot of categories to wikiquote articles, good work!

Just wondering if you have considered using Hotcat? I myself find this tool, that you can add to your preferences(gadgets), very useful.

Hello Ottawahitech and many thanks! How can I add it? Are you from Canada?--Vilho-Veli (talk) 16:52, 14 October 2020 (UTC)Reply
Good idea. It is explained here [1] --დამოკიდებულება (talk) 17:07, 14 October 2020 (UTC)Reply
Fine! Must try.--Vilho-Veli (talk) 17:11, 14 October 2020 (UTC)Reply

Are you joking?--Vilho-Veli (talk) 22:26, 27 October 2020 (UTC)Reply
I am also curious @DawgDeputy:. What is this about? Ottawahitech (talk) 01:11, 28 October 2020 (UTC)Reply
You adding an image. Not everything is allowed on WikiQuote. WQ doesn't need everything, but we're interested in quotes. I'm just stupid, that's all. DawgDeputy (talk) 21:48, October 27, 2020 (EST)
Hi anon. What image was added? Ottawahitech (talk) 16:47, 28 October 2020 (UTC)Reply
These warnings were posted by IP address (previous, latest) using the signatures of others.--Saroj Uprety (talk) 04:51, 28 October 2020 (UTC)Reply

The image is Sushruta. As long as Wikipedia has it we'll keep the image.--Vilho-Veli (talk) 17:15, 28 October 2020 (UTC)Reply

New user needs help


Hi I am new on Wikiquotes and I need help navigating through the platform. I need someone to teach me a few things. Do you think you can help? I am an experienced Wikipedia editor and I am confident i learn pretty fast.

P.S I am think of a online meeting on Zoom or Google meet. I just need to know the basics e.g notability. Prithee P (talk) 10:41, 19 September 2021 (UTC)Reply
