Hello, we've noticed you're trying to help us move the pages to the new naming scheme. While any help is appreciated, it seems that you are not using the proper move function and instead just copy paste the content. Sadly this causes the pages to lose their revision history, which is important for proper attribution. Could you please start moving the pages using the move feature, which is hidden away in the "more" menu in the top bar? Thanks --Mibrab (talk) 14:15, 5 April 2019 (BST)

@Mibrab Actually, he can't move pages as his account is not yet a week old (which is necessary to become autoconfirmed). But ToMi, please do not move pages by copy and pasting - I had to delete all of them and revert your changes. Please let me know which pages are to be moved and I can do it for you. X010 (talk) 14:18, 5 April 2019 (BST)
@X010 Thanks very much X010. OK, here is the list:
- Windows 3.0/build 14
- Windows 3.0/build 33
- Windows 3.0/build 55
- Windows 3.0/RC6
- Windows 3.0/3.00
- Windows 3.0/3.00a
- Windows 3.0/TestDrive
- Windows 3.0/3.0B
- Windows 3.0/3.00a with Multimedia Extensions
- Windows 3.0/3.02

--ToMi (talk) 16:23, 5 April 2019 (BST):

Yes check.svg.png Done I've moved these, and a bunch of other pages that I noticed when looking at your contribution history. Please let me know if I've missed something or there are more pages to move. Also, note that the format for the 3.x series is Windows 3.x/3.00.14 as an example, not Windows 3.0. X010 (talk) 16:39, 5 April 2019 (BST)
@X010 Windows 3.x/3.00 doesn't exist. --ToMi (talk) 13:41, 6 April 2019 (BST):
I deleted that page as it had nothing in it; the content in it was literally "//WIP//". X010 (talk) 13:59, 6 April 2019 (BST)


I've given you the mover userright. This means that you can now move pages without a redirect (which you should select), and delete any redirects you have already created. Please let me know if you have any questions. X010 (talk) 10:11, 20 April 2019 (BST)

@X010 OK, Thank you. --ToMi (talk) 10:11, 20 April 2019 (BST)

Plagiarism of BetaWiki material

So I noticed that a lot of the Windows 1.0 Tandy 2000 stuff for the later build was a near direct copy+paste of what BetaWiki has. I’m going to kindly ask you to ‘’’stop plagiarizing’’’. WILSON2bGg (talk) 03:46, 29 April 2019 (BST)

@WILSON2bGg OK, sorry WILSON2bGg. --ToMi (talk) 08:38, 29 April 2019 (BST)
Indeed, please do not do that without attributing the content to BetaWiki to some form. If the amount is significant, you should request an import. X010 (talk) 20:44, 29 April 2019 (BST)
This applies for images as well; you need to mention the source! X010 (talk) 21:13, 29 April 2019 (BST)
OK. --ToMi (talk) 16:54, 30 April 2019 (BST)

It seems that you have copied the BuildList templates from BetaWiki. If that's the case, note (again!) that you should be requesting an import... X010 (talk) 16:21, 10 May 2019 (BST)

@X010 You can import from BetaWiki? --ToMi (talk) 17:55, 10 May 2019 (BST)
@ToMi It's definitely possible, but I wonder whether this template is really needed. X010 (talk) 20:44, 10 May 2019 (BST)
@X010 OK, thanks for message. --ToMi (talk) 09:19, 11 May 2019 (BST)

Thank you

You a good editor thanks Wwepro126 (talk) 18:55, 29 April 2019 (BST)

Notes about some of your recent edits

There's no reason for removing Windows XP/Vista/7/any other OS from the operating systems category. I will correct this, but I wanted to notify you.

I think the little footnote on the Stub template:

Please remove this template if the page wasn't edited in several days.

should be removed.

And this same text in the ToDo template should be replaced with something like:

Please replace this template with Stub if the page wasn't edited in several days.

This way we know which pages could be potentially expanded.
