Helo Deb! Croeso i'r Wicipedia Cymraeg -- peidiwch a phoeni os ydych chi ddim yn ysgrifennu Gymraeg perffaith, mae'r mwyafrif ohonom ni yn yr un cwch! Mae'n braf i gweld chi yma.
Hello Deb! Welcome to the Welsh Wikipedia -- don't worry if you don't write perfect Welsh, most of us are in the same boat! It's nice to see you over here. I've been playing around with the Welsh [localisation file] -- do you feel able to take a look to see if what I've done so far makes sense (rather a lot of it has come out of a few dictionaries, as we seem to be a bit lacking in technical terminology though I have found a list I've put up at Termau cyfrifiadurol Cymraeg!). -- Arwel 22:00 29 Jul 2003 (UTC)

Hi Deb! Welcome back, I hadn't noticed you around here for a while and was hoping you were OK. -- Arwel 01:11, 16 Dec 2003 (UTC)


Nominations for admin status[golygu cod y dudalen]

I hope you are well. I want to nominate some of our experienced fellow users for admin status so that the admin load is shared around some more. So far I have received agreements to be nominated from Defnyddiwr:Tomos ANTIGUA Tomos and Defnyddiwr:Rhion and Defnyddiwr:Dyfrig and so I am nominating them. Lloffiwr 20:52, 30 Mehefin 2007 (UTC)

Bot status for Byrialbot[golygu cod y dudalen]

Hello Deb! I wonder if you noticed my request for botstatus for Byrialbot which update interwiki links. Bot status would mean that its contributions would no longer appear in the recent changes page (unless you select the "show bots" link) having the advantage that the "real" changes will be easier to spot. You can as bureaucrat grant bot flag using Special:Makebot. Thank you. Byrial 17:06, 20 Gorffennaf 2007 (UTC)

Thank you for the bot flag and for the message about it. I will take care. Byrial 09:10, 22 Gorffennaf 2007 (UTC)

Mr Puw[golygu cod y dudalen]

Hi Deb, here's a copy of my message to you just posted on your en. Talk page, minus links:

Have you been keeping an eye on "Edmwnd Harri Puw", tagged as hoax and proposed for deletion? Just got here from cy. to check it out. My long list of reasons for deletion as a hoax on the Discussion page had been reverted by one of two new sock puppets used by this hoaxer (he now has four or possibly five user names plus does anon edits - not bad in a week!). He also added a very general list of references (along the lines of Who's Who in Wales etc) as "proof", none of them actually giving a page number etc for the supposed Mr Puw. He then removed the hoax and deletion tags, which I've just replaced. This is most definitely a hoax (see Discussion page and Welsh wikipedians talk). I was aware of that from the outset but spent some time searching out possible references to back my case. I wonder if you could do something about it, and the user (= User:EdPuw, User:Hebog and his two new ones, plus I think User:Emyr411)? It's not just the hoax article itself but the fact that he's been adding references to Puw and his Works all over the place. Diolch yn fawr. Anatiomaros 20:09, 19 Medi 2007 (UTC)

Benazir[golygu cod y dudalen]

Bit of a rush job. Thought i'd better do it first before noting it in 'Marwolaethau Diweddar'. Really sad news. I had Sky news on for the first time in days and the breaking news of the attack came, then the announcement of her death about 20 mins later. I guess I'd disagree with her on quite a few points but we go back a long way, so to speak, and I know Pakistan fairly well. Trist iawn, for her family and Pakistan.

Blanche Parry[golygu cod y dudalen]

Annwyl Deb

Diolch yn fawr am y croeso i Wikipedia. Gobeithio y bydd pawb yn gwerthfawrogi fy nghyfraniadau bach. Dw i wedi gweld dy fod wedi creu’r bywgraffiad am Blanche Parry ’nôl yn 2006. Mi ddes i o hyd i’w hanes hi tua 2000, pan rôn i’n gwneud ymchwil ar yr iaith Gymraeg yn Swydd Henffordd ar gyfer fy B.A. yn Llambed. Hoffwn i ychwanegu rhai pethau at yr erthygl, gan gynnwys llun ohoni o’i beddrod yn Eglwys Bacton, os mae hynny’n iawn gyda ti? Un peth dw i wedi sylw yw bod yr erthygl yn dweud efallai ’roedd hi’n perthyn i Sir Thomas Parry, ond dw i wedi darllen nad oedd cysylltiad rhyngddynt!

Many thanks for the welcome to Wikipedia. I hope everyone will appreciate my contributions. I see that you created a biography for Blache Parry back in 2006. I came across her around 2000, when I was doing research on the Welsh language in Herefordshire for my B.A. at Lampeter. I’d like to make some additions to the article, including a photo of her from her tomb in Bacton Church, if that’s alright with you? One thing I noticed was that the article says she was possibly related to Sir Thomas Parry, but I’ve read that there was no connection between them!

"banana" yw cyfrinair fy nghyfrif (=Mh96)

He really is asking to be blocked, for some reason (see also Caffi history page). That was his request after replacing the Welsh flag with this "joke" version. Maybe its not a bad idea, after all. (I reverted the image and the original now appears on Hafan, but for some reason I can't delete the photoshopped version. I've got an uploaded copy of the original so would it be best to choose "delete all" and reupload the original?). Anatiomaros 21:06, 13 Mawrth 2008 (UTC)
He's done all sorts of practical jokes in the past, but over the last few days he's been all over the place, so to speak (see the reverted edit of Penisarcwm for instance and the blanking and restoring of the Caffi). I've tried to be patient. Would you like to do the block, or shall we give one last try? Could you leave him a message perhaps? I've warned him several times in the past so don't want this to seem personal. Anatiomaros 22:23, 13 Mawrth 2008 (UTC)

Vandal user account[golygu cod y dudalen]

Hi. I apologise for communicating with you in English, but I do not know Welsh. A long while ago, a user created an account on cy.wikipedia using the nickname I tend to use on Wikimedia projects (User:OldakQuill, please see en:User:OldakQuill or commons:User:OldakQuill). The user used the account to vandalise cy.wikipedia and was promptly banned. I am having a problem unifying my account across Wikimedia because this account uses the username "OldakQuill", but was not set up by me. In this scenario, meta:Help:Unified_login suggests contacting a bureaucrat on the project to request the vandal account be moved to another user name. I am not sure what cy.wikipedia policy says concerning this. Would you be willing to move the vandal-account to another name so that I may take this username? Many thanks, en:User:OldakQuill -- 20:45, 25 Mawrth 2008 (UTC)

Unified login issue[golygu cod y dudalen]

Dear Deb,

I need your help as a bureaucrat on this wiki. I am de:User:Entlinkt. Someone has registed my user name on this wiki before unified login was introduced and made some nasty changes, so that the account was even blocked for one day. None of the contributions is useful in any way. The person also created a user page where he claims to be me, but that is not true.

This account is now preventing me from logging in to this wiki under my global user name. I had this problem on about 15 wikis. The second last wiki where it has been solved is the Japanese. Cymraeg is now the last wiki where my user name is taken by someone else. Would you mind renaming the account out of the way, using the Special:Renameuser interface, so I can log in here? I would use the account mainly for fixing interwiki problems such as Craig Thomas. A bot fixed it here, but I could have done it myself much earlier.

If possible, could you delete both user pages Defnyddiwr:Entlinkt and Defnyddiwr:Entlinkt Ffug? The latter is a fake, I have never created that account. The former is now my real user page.

Wicipedia DU[golygu cod y dudalen]

Wikimedians in the United Kingdom are working to set up a chapter of the Wikimedia Foundation, which will aid and encourage people to collect, develop and effectively disseminate knowledge. A board of five members has been elected, and a company has now been set up. Membership applications are now invited, and will be processed as soon as we have a bank account. The organisation needs the support and involvement of people like you.

So far, most participants have been based on English-language projects, but we want to ensure that we work with and for Wikimedians in all languages. As Wicipedia yn Gymraeg is an important language native to the UK, we are making contact with you.

We need to know what a new UK chapter can do to assist your project, and how we can best work together to make that happen. We are also looking for people who can translate short pieces of text, such as the first paragraph of this message, to help publicise the activities of the chapter.

Please do comment, make suggestions, and feel free to ask us any questions, whether here, on MetaWiki, or on the wikimedia-uk mailing list. AndrewRT 23:04, 1 Rhagfyr 2008 (UTC)

welcome template[golygu cod y dudalen]


Thanks for the explanation. In any event, the message is a bit long to put on somebody's talk page. What we need is a template containing a brief welcome message and a link to the full page. The template can be called Nodyn:Croeso, so that the name is easy to remember (and to use with {{croeso}} or possibly {{subst:croeso}}). You may also decide to have this shorter message on your user page, although in fact I think I've probably fixed the category problem by putting the category (and interwiki) links in a <noinclude> section on the help page, so that e.g. your user page is no longer in Categori:Cymorth (at least hopefully as of soon; it seems to take a while to take effect).

I'll write something and then ask some fluent speakers to polish up the wording.

I now ask if you could could help support our bid by contributing to the bid page that is located at: Now is the critical period for work to continue on the bid as the official bidding period has now started and the jury has been formed.

I do not ask for huge swathes of time, just enough that with eveyrone working on this, it can be completed in time to the high standard required in a bid. For the bid page, an excellent source of information is the travel wiki article on the City of Oxford which is found at: The chance of bringing Wikimania to the UK is the best so far and i expect the best chance for many years. With a fresh and stong UK chapter we have an amazing opportunity to put ourselves on the map.

Eisiau dy gyngor[golygu cod y dudalen]

S'mae Deb? Wonder if you could bring your experience to bear on a problem that's arisen concerning Defnyddiwr:Wiccan1? He innocently created his account without realising that his main account, Defnyddiwr:xxglennxx is in fact a crosswiki account. This has only just come to light. I'm certain no attempt at the dreaded "sockpuppetry" was intended; it was a simple mistake. But what's the best way to resolve it, "block" the Wiccan1 account with a note of explanation or delete it? There's a bit of discussion about this on my talk page under 'Helo'. Appreciate your advice, as always. Hwyl, Anatiomaros 20:06, 20 Mehefin 2009 (UTC)

BBC Vocab[golygu cod y dudalen]

Hi, Deb. I've received an invitation for Wicipedia from Bwrdd yr Iaith Gymraeg and the BBC, posted at Wicipedia:Y Caffi/25,000 erthygl in Welsh. Here's the English text, so you don't miss out:

BBC VOCAB: invitation to work in partnership with the Welsh Language Board and BBC Wales
We are writing to you on behalf of the Welsh Language Board and BBC Wales to invite Wicipedia to participate in the BBC Vocab project. As you may know, this scheme, which assists people who are learning Welsh to better understand web pages in Welsh, has been available for some time on the BBC and the Board’s websites. We are pleased to note that the further technical developments have now finished, enabling Vocab to be trialled on other websites.
There is no cost to join the trial or the project itself. For learners or Welsh speakers who are not fully confident in their Welsh, Vocab can encourage more people to view your Welsh Language pages. There will also be an opportunity for you to declare your participation in a joint press release between all the institutions that will be taking part in the scheme - which will hopefully generate further publicity for all concerned.
If you are not aware of the scheme, the enclosed screen grabs show how Vocab Works. The principle is quite simple: your web pages are passed through the BBC Wales’s dictionary, which then highlights definitions of more ‘difficult’ words ‘in yellow (see screen grab on right). By hovering your Mouse over any Word which is highlighted, the user will see a definition from the dictionary, with an option to visit the full definition on the BBC website.
All that your institution needs to do is adapt a few lines of code from the Welsh side of your website to include the BBC Vocab ‘box’. Of course, there will be a need to spend some time testing to ensure Vocab works on your website before a formal launch, from our previous introductory testing that we have undergone, we do not anticipate this to be a major demand on your time.
This free of charge and exciting project is something the BBC and the Board are very proud of and we are eager for Wicipedia to participate in.
If you would like to participate, and increase the number of visitors to your Welsh pages on your website whilst sharing in the ensuing positive publicity then visit (here)to see the next steps that you should take.
Your Vocab URL is (here).

What do you think? Is there any precedent on Wikipedia? Could do with your advice. Cofion cynnes, Anatiomaros 18:54, 25 Mehefin 2009 (UTC)

There's a discussion, in Cymraeg, at Sgwrs Nodyn:Vocab. One of the technical points that needs resolving is whether it is possible to add Vocab to the 'blwch offer', after translating the script and creating a template (or two) to enable it (this could avoid us having to insert the script iself on every page, an impossible task...). But how do we do that? Even as a biwrocrat/gweinyddwr I don't seem to have access to it. One presumes, therefore, that it's a case of having to ask an admin from Meta to do it for us. Would you know anything about this? Also, just where do we stand on this anyway, as part of the Wikipedia Foundation itself? Are there any precedents or guidelines? Perhaps you know someone who is involved with Metawiki who could be asked for advice, informally? Your experience and advice would be appreciated. Diolch, Anatiomaros 19:15, 2 Gorffennaf 2009 (UTC)
Any ideas on this, Deb? It really needs to be resolved. I've had several e-mails from the WLB asking how things are progressing and I really don't know what to say! This is now urgent: we either do this or we don't. Any suggestions would be welcome as I'm at a loss as to what to do next. Cofion, Anatiomaros 17:18, 19 Gorffennaf 2009 (UTC)

Drws[golygu cod y dudalen]

Sut mae, Deb? In case you were wondering, I took Drws off the Erthyglau newydd list as it was obviously a machine translation and made little or no sense. Needs a complete rewrite or deleting. For instance, it opens with the statement 'Mae drws yn anodd, beth fflat...', which roughly translated means "A door is difficult, a flat thing..."! I'm sure the creator meant well but contributions like this are a pain, to be honest, even if an article on the subject is needed. Anatiomaros 21:58, 17 Medi 2009 (UTC)

gweithfa[golygu cod y dudalen]

Hello Deb,

As far as I can tell, the word "gweithfa" only means "works" in the sense of a manufacturing plant, not as in artistic works etc, so in Arvo Pärt I changed it to "gweithiau".

You might like to confirm this with a native speaker, and if this is correct then change gweithfa to gweithiau in existing articles where it has been used with this meaning, for example Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

A small request[golygu cod y dudalen]

I wonder if you could do me a favour in your capacity as admin "over on the Dark Side"? At long last I've finally created a unified account. However, as I knew, there is already an account with my preferred user name on 'en'. It was created in August 2007 and only used for 2 days so I think we can assume it is as dormant as a John Cleese's parrot. What I'd like you to do is rename that account so that my Enaidmawr account on en can be moved to Anatiomaros and join my other (now unified) local accounts. Details about dealing with the situation here under 'Someone is using my name on another wiki, how can I get that account?'. Hopefully it's not too complicated a procedure.

Image licences[golygu cod y dudalen]

Apologies for writing in English and thank you for welcoming me. As you can see, I am currently tidying up Geograph images. It is no exaggeration to say that I am horrified at the contempt this wiki shows for image licensing. If people upload untagged images to the English Wikipedia or the Commons, they last no more than a few days. I do not want to single out individuals but this list hints at the extent of the problem.

As a minimum, please implement a stricter upload routine which insists on a valid licence tag. This will at least prevent the problem increasing. — RHaworth 18:43, 19 Medi 2010 (UTC)

On other wikis the speedy delete template allows me to give a reason. Nodyn:Tudalen amheus should do so also. -- RHaworth 18:55, 19 Medi 2010 (UTC)

I've noticed that your new book has recently been released. Paul-L 19:48, 13 Hydref 2010 (UTC)

I'll look to see if any of your books are in my local library the next time I'm there. Paul-L 12:25, 19 Hydref 2010 (UTC)

I am in the library and your books are not in here.

But I could write a poor review on Amazon just because one of your site police blocked out this computer before.

No maybe that would be a bit cruel. All right I won't. Gosh I'm far too nice.

No need for you to block him. I've done it myself. Pwyll 16:25, 23 Hydref 2010 (UTC)
Just some Sais playing with Google Translate. Aside from all his petty nationalism, he accused male voice choirs of sexual discrimination and then went on to make a sexist comment about old women on the Snowdon railway. Nain Nain Nain 17:32, 23 Hydref 2010 (UTC)
My only concern is that he probably really is "yn y llyfrgell", having been banned at home, and will get a shared IP address banned by his activities. Deb 07:58, 24 Hydref 2010 (UTC)
That may be true. I've just changed the block to "amhenodl" (see the vandal's talk page for my reasons). This underlines the need for us to have two of us with check-user status here on cy, but as you are probably aware that privilege is very closely guarded and the rules seem deliberately designed to ensure that only a handful of the larger wikis have check-users. Most unfair and inconvenient for everybody else.
In this case I think we could safely assume that the library, if indeed that is the IP location, is somewhere in God's Own Country; either way it's not likely to affect any future potential contributor as there must be thousands of such locations. Anatiomaros 15:42, 24 Hydref 2010 (UTC)
Rules? I thought we made our own! Deb 17:00, 24 Hydref 2010 (UTC)

Returning to the original point of this (before the vandal came along), I was in Prestatyn library last Friday, and the only book of yours I could find on their shelves was 'Princes of Wales'. I didn't borrow it, as I have a backlog of unread books at home that I want to read first, before getting any more books. Paul-L 11:58, 28 Hydref 2010 (UTC)

Well, Paul, the new one is just out and, as far as I'm concerned, the more people who request it from their local library, the happier I'll be! Deb 20:22, 1 Tachwedd 2010 (UTC)

Kvikk Lunsj[golygu cod y dudalen]

Hi Deb. In case you're wondering why I undid your adding 'Kvikk Lunsj' to Erthyglau newydd, it seems that the article was deleted by BenBore (see here). From what I can see of the text without restoring the item, it would seem to have been a machine translation. It shouldn't have been left by him as a red link in Erthyglau newydd though, and therefore showing on the Hafan page as well, sticking out like a sore thumb, which is how I noticed it...

correction[golygu cod y dudalen]

Deb, I see that in your articles about literature in various years you are adding a section title called "Ieithiau arall". That should be "Ieithoedd eraill". Peredur ap Rhodri 22:19, 4 Mai 2011 (UTC)

By the way, I guess the subheading "arall" should probably be "eraill" (plural) as well, because it refers to other genres. But you might want to check with one of the native speakers on this point. Peredur ap Rhodri 22:22, 4 Mai 2011 (UTC)
Ti sy'n iawn, Peredur - mae angen defnyddio'r lluosog o "arall" sy'n "eraill." Ti hefyd sydd yn iawn am luosog 'iaith' > 'ieithoedd'. -- Xxglennxx (sgw.cyf.) 12:11, 5 Mai 2011 (UTC)

Just changed it myself! Don't know why it hasn't shown all my edits this morning! Around 25. It may have something to do with the fact that the system was down this morning when I started editing at 9.52; or the fact that I allowed myself BOT status for 30 minutes in partnership with en:User:Ganeshk, as part of my BOT request (see Caffi).

rhwystrau[golygu cod y dudalen]

Dw i wedi cymryd golwg ar Arbennig:BlockList a dw i'n gweld llawer o rwystrau hirion yna. Dw i ddim yn eich gweld yn rhybuddio'r defnyddwyr a rwystrwyd cyn i'w rhwystro. Ar wici-en a wici-fr maen nhw'n gosod negeseuon ar y tudalennau sgwrs i rybuddio defnyddwyr am fandaliaeth - ond dim ar wici-cy, dim ond eu rhwystro, amhenodol yn aml (cyfeiriadau IP hefyd!), heb ddweud dim byd ar wahan i 'dyma rwystr i ti, y rheswm oedd hwn'. Pam? Ydych chi'n siwr bod hyn yn syniad da? Os ydych chi'n rhybuddio cyn rhwystro, mae hyn yn rhoi cyfle i'r fandal i wella'i gyfraniadau a dod yn olygydd da. Oes gwahaniaeth gyda ni os mae hyn yn bosibl, neu oes mwy o wahaniaeth gyda ni am fandaliaeth na chyfraniadau?

Rwyt ti wedi gosod llawer o'r rhwystrau felly roeddwn i'n meddwl efallai dy fod yn gallu dweud wrtho i pam dydyn ni ddim yn rhybuddio cyn rhwystro. Dw i'n meddwl bod angen arnon ni bolisi rhwystro fel ar y wiciau eraill. Os nad oes polisi gyda ni am rwystro does dim byd i ddweud beth ni all y gweinyddwyr defnyddio fel rheswm dros rwystro, nac oes?

Hefyd, beth mae diogelwch sgydol yn cael ei ddefnyddio i atal yn wir? Dw i ddim yn ei ddeall. Cathfolant 23:46, 5 Mehefin 2013 (UTC)

Wait, was that supposed to be in English? I'm all confused...anyway the idea is, why are users getting blocked for so long on their first block and why aren't we warning them first because they do warn them on English and French wikipedias. Cathfolant 23:53, 5 Mehefin 2013 (UTC)
Sorry about the Welsh earlier. Here's the full translation of what I said, minus the last bit about cascading protection:
I took a look at Arbennig:BlockList and I see a lot of long blocks there. I don't see you [all] warning the users that were blocked before blocking them. On wiki-en and wiki-fr they leave messages on the talk pages to warn users about vandalism - but not on wiki-cy, only block them, often indefinitely (IP addresses too!), without saying anything but 'here's a block for you, the reason was this'. Why? Are you sure that's a good idea? If you warn before blocking, this gives the vandal a chance to improve their contributions and become a good editor. Do we care if that's possible, or do we care more about vandalism than contributions?
You made a lot of the blocks so I thought maybe you could tell me why we don't warn before blocking. I think we need a blocking policy like on the other wikis. If we don't have a policy for blocking there's nothing to say what the administrators can't use as a reason for blocking, is there?
'You made a lot of the blocks' actually referred to Llywelyn2000, since I don't see that many blocks made by you; I was going to talk to Llywelyn2000 but I decided for some reason to come to you instead.
Per Rhyswynne's suggestion I'm going to post on the Caffi about this to see what some other users say. I will try my best to provide all my comments in both languages. Cathfolant 21:11, 7 Mehefin 2013 (UTC)
I left a reply on my talk yesterday. I still think we need a blocking policy and I'm happy to try to write something up though I would like the input of everyone else first - and on this wiki for a change there actually is an 'everyone else'. Cathfolant 14:44, 8 Mehefin 2013 (UTC)
There is a new section here if you are interested. I hope this was the right thing to do. Cathfolant 15:17, 8 Mehefin 2013 (UTC)
I finally answered you and Anatiomaros on the Caffi discussion. I don't know if you've seen that yet - just letting you know. Sorry for taking your time with this. Cathfolant 23:16, 10 Mehefin 2013 (UTC)

I have written something up. I would appreciate it if someone would take a look. It seems people are busy with more important stuff these days.

I was happy to see that this IP, a civilly POV-pushing Welsh-speaker, was warned before the three month block, but I'd have warned before the one day block as well and given a more complete description of what the problem was. I hope he/she gets the message and contributes usefully in the future rather than just walking away. Cathfolant (sgwrs) 16:00, 1 Gorffennaf 2013 (UTC)

Alldafliad[golygu cod y dudalen]

Helo 'na Deb, I noticed you had redacted my edit on this topic so I thought it right to explain and hopefully (without embarrassing anyone) move forward with some needed improvements. I'd like to put something more substantial in the article to at least attempt to match the English page, though I appreciate the fact that the English page is just a click away. Having said that is it not important for the Welsh language to be treated on the same level as any other language including English? I think it is. Indeed if that line of argument was posited we would probably only have sites in German, French, English, Spanish and Mandarin Chinese.

My name is Paul by the way. You may have guessed, I'm not a native welsh speaker and only know a few words and phrases, otherwise I would have improved the article text a good deal rather than simply adding an image link. Apologies for that. Without going into too much medical history I reached the site in round about way from the English page. I had been looking for specific references to medical conditions and was gobsmacked at the debates that had gone on in the past over images and their use, particularly with reference to pages covering human sexuality. I reached the welsh site by rote as I was looking on equivalent sites in other languages. Anyhoo, to cut a long story short, I became rather annoyed (grumpy old man syndrome?) at the whole debate of what should and shouldn't be included in Wikipedia. My research concluded that in spite of a Wiki no censorship policy, for whatever reasons, censorship takes place and often what we end up with is a less worthy or more confusing situation than if no censorship had been done. Of course sexual health matters, human anatomy and physiology can be somewhat embarrassing, surprising or shocking to some people but they are a fact of life. What I've found is that rather than accept the facts we prefer ignorance and often skirt around the subject. That's why Wikipedia is very important, regardless of the criticism from some academic quarters. When I was in my teens I would have loved to have had a resource like WK at my finger tips as many of the more embarrassing subjects would have been discovered for myself. Which is really why I was somewhat annoyed at the whole issue of what should and should not be shown. 'Publish and be damned' was a quote that sprang to mind, hence my edit.

So to the matter in hand. By simple comparison to other languages the basic information on the Welsh page is rather poor and I do not believe the important inclusion of images is best served by the awful video currently on the page. Awful, in aesthetic quality and physiological representation. The GIF image I posted plays in a loop and may raise the embarrassment level for some but it is by far a better representation of the normal male physiological function and based on the Kinsey and Masters & Johnson studies, is relatively typical of men in their 20's.

Can we have a dialogue about possible improvements? If you write it in Welsh I'll have to use a Google Translate but I'm happy with that though I may need explanations in English if I get confused.

Cofion cynnes, Paul

An important message about renaming users[golygu cod y dudalen]

Dear Deb, My aplogies for writing in English. Please translate or have this translated for you if it will help. I am cross-posting this message to many places to make sure everyone who is a Wikimedia Foundation project bureaucrat receives a copy. If you are a bureaucrat on more than one wiki, you will receive this message on each wiki where you are a bureaucrat.

As you may have seen, work to perform the Wikimedia cluster-wide single-user login finalisation (SUL finalisation) is taking place. This may potentially effect your work as a local bureaucrat, so please read this message carefully.

Why is this happening? As currently stated at the global rename policy, a global account is a name linked to a single user across all Wikimedia wikis, with local accounts unified into a global collection. Previously, the only way to rename a unified user was to individually rename every local account. This was an extremely difficult and time-consuming task, both for stewards and for the users who had to initiate discussions with local bureaucrats (who perform local renames to date) on every wiki with available bureaucrats. The process took a very long time, since it's difficult to coordinate crosswiki renames among the projects and bureaucrats involved in individual projects.

The SUL finalisation will be taking place in stages, and one of the first stages will be to turn off Special:RenameUser locally. This needs to be done as soon as possible, on advice and input from Stewards and engineers for the project, so that no more accounts that are unified globally are broken by a local rename to usurp the global account name. Once this is done, the process of global name unification can begin. The date that has been chosen to turn off local renaming and shift over to entirely global renaming is 15 September 2014, or three weeks time from now. In place of local renames is a new tool, hosted on Meta, that allows for global renames on all wikis where the name is not registered will be deployed.

Your help is greatly needed during this process and going forward in the future if, as a bureaucrat, renaming users is something that you do or have an interest in participating in. The Wikimedia Stewards have set up, and are in charge of, a new community usergroup on Meta in order to share knowledge and work together on renaming accounts globally, called Global renamers. Stewards are in the process of creating documentation to help global renamers to get used to and learn more about global accounts and tools and Meta in general as well as the application format. As transparency is a valuable thing in our movement, the Stewards would like to have at least a brief public application period. If you are an experienced renamer as a local bureaucrat, the process of becoming a part of this group could take as little as 24 hours to complete. You, as a bureaucrat, should be able to apply for the global renamer right on Meta by the requests for global permissions page on 1 September, a week from now.

In the meantime please update your local page where users request renames to reflect this move to global renaming, and if there is a rename request and the user has edited more than one wiki with the name, please send them to the request page for a global rename.

Stewards greatly appreciate the trust local communities have in you and want to make this transition as easy as possible so that the two groups can start working together to ensure everyone has a unique login identity across Wikimedia projects. Completing this project will allow for long-desired universal tools like a global watchlist, global notifications and many, many more features to make work easier.

If you have any questions, comments or concerns about the SUL finalisation, read over the Help:Unified login page on Meta and leave a note on the talk page there, or on the talk page for global renamers. You can also contact me on my talk page on meta if you would like. I'm working as a bridge between Wikimedia Foundation Engineering and Product Development, Wikimedia Stewards, and you to assure that SUL finalisation goes as smoothly as possible; this is a community-driven process and I encourage you to work with the Stewards for our communities.

Thank you for your time. -- Keegan (WMF) talk 18:24, 25 Awst 2014 (UTC)

I gave an example of copy/pasting here Deb. It's literaly just a copy from en (from the Clacton by-election article) and paste into cy, without altering anything. Some prefer to use the Welsh templates (where available) but then you need to translate everything! This copy/paste from en is a 5 second job! The effect on screen, to the user, is exactly the same.

Pete's Dragon, Madagascar (ffilm), and The Sword in the Stone[golygu cod y dudalen]

Could you see what I had to say at the talk pages of these articles? Kkjj (sgwrs) 11:04, 26 Ionawr 2017 (UTC)

I mentioned at Sgwrs:Madagascar (ffilm) that the disambiguation is incomplete. Meanwhile at Sgwrs:The Sword in the Stone I mentioned that the article is about the 1963 Disney animated film but mentions a few facts and an image about the book. I can't edit either article because they are protected. Should the protection be lowered? Kkjj (sgwrs) 11:20, 27 Ionawr 2017 (UTC)
Pete's Dragon also needs to be unprotected so that it can be moved to Pete's Dragon (ffilm 1977). Pete's Dragon is also the title of a 2016 remake. Kkjj (sgwrs) 16:50, 27 Ionawr 2017 (UTC)
I don't see that it needs to be moved, even if someone is planning to create an article on the new one - because the existing article is likely to be the one that people look for, i.e. the primary topic. Deb (sgwrs) 18:33, 27 Ionawr 2017 (UTC)
Actually en:Pete's Dragon was made into a disambiguation just like Madagascar (ffilm). Pete's Dragon is an underrated film so a lot of people only know the 2016 film. I've noticed that a lot of Disney articles are underdeveloped and need more content. It would help if they were unprotected so that users like Dafyddt could improve them. Kkjj (sgwrs) 03:10, 28 Ionawr 2017 (UTC)
Re your first sentence: that's because there are more than one Pete's Dragon articles. I agree weith Deb. We have but one on cy, therefore we don't need a disambig. Please don't add English language text on this wiki. If some of the articles are undeveloped, that's because editors don't see them as a priority. Llywelyn2000 (sgwrs) 09:52, 28 Ionawr 2017 (UTC)
I was hoping Dafyddt would help write the article about Pete's Dragon (ffilm 2016) since he seems interested in films. If I start it will you help me write it? Kkjj (sgwrs) 09:58, 28 Ionawr 2017 (UTC)
I would only be able to manage something very simple, and it's not a priority for me. Deb (sgwrs) 15:16, 28 Ionawr 2017 (UTC)
Can you translate this text:

Pete's Dragon is a 2016 American fantasy comedy-drama adventure film directed by David Lowery, written by Lowery and Toby Halbrooks, and produced by James Whitaker. The film is a remake of the 1977 musical film of the same name written by Malcolm Marmorstein. The film stars Bryce Dallas Howard, Oakes Fegley, Wes Bentley, Karl Urban, Oona Laurence, and Robert Redford. The film tells the story of an orphaned feral boy who befriends a dragon in the Pacific Northwest, and the ensuing repercussions of their discovery by the town's local residents.

Pete's Dragon premiered at the El Capitan Theatre on August 8, 2016 and was theatrically released by Walt Disney Pictures in the United States in 2D, Disney Digital 3-D, and RealD 3D formats on August 12, 2016. The film received positive reviews from critics and has grossed $143 million worldwide against a $65 million production budget.

That's the introduction off of English Wikipedia, and I deleted the links and references for talk page purposes. I also need to know how to say "Theatrical release poster" for the infobox. Kkjj (sgwrs) 16:29, 28 Ionawr 2017 (UTC)

Me? No way! Deb (sgwrs) 17:25, 28 Ionawr 2017 (UTC)
I asked Dafyddt for help on Pete's Dragon. Can the original article be unprotected so that the disambig can be created? Kkjj (sgwrs) 04:31, 29 Ionawr 2017 (UTC)
You should discuss this on the article's talk page before doing any moves. It would be better to create a separate disambiguation page at Pete's Dragon (gwahaniaethu). Deb (sgwrs) 11:39, 29 Ionawr 2017 (UTC)
I created it but did I get the translation right? Kkjj (sgwrs) 12:45, 29 Ionawr 2017 (UTC)

Two types of images...[golygu cod y dudalen]

Noswaith dda Deb! Re your new article: Good-Bye to All That and the image. There are two types: those on Commons (free, open to all languages), and those uploaded to the individual / specific languages' wikipedia. The image you tagged doesn't appear on cywiki as it is specific to enwiki. Have a look at the image's page and there's no link to Commons. The reason for this is that book covers, album covers are allowed in some countries but not in others. All 8,000 book covers on cywiki were uploaded to the cy-Wikipedia, not Commons, under Fair Use (Defnydd Teg) policy. If you did that in some countries you'de be shot against the wall! Some differences happen with Freedom of Panorama. I suggest: 1. you save the image from enwiki 2. upload using the 'Uwchlwytho ffeil' button on the left, find the relevant licence (Clawr llyfr etc). Then, hey presto... Llywelyn2000 (sgwrs) 20:46, 15 Chwefror 2017 (UTC)

Elizabeth Maconchy and the two paragraph rule.[golygu cod y dudalen]

For the last 4 years, some of us, especially Anatiomaros and Llywelyn2000 have been trying to adhere to the 2 paragraph rule (minimum), which should also include either an infobox or a table, image or similar. Unless the 'one-line-note' (I can't call it an Egin, even!) is developed further I will be deleting it. '''Defnyddiwr:John Jones''' (sgwrs) 21:42, 8 Mawrth 2017 (UTC)

What I try to do is to add info, and develop so that it has two pargraphs. But then, others dictate my agenda! Llywelyn2000 (sgwrs) 14:13, 9 Mawrth 2017 (UTC)
Sorry. I seem to have been the cause of this debate. Yesterday I woke up and found it was International Women's Day, so, wishing to celebrate the occasion, I decided to do my bit and posted 6 new articles on female composers. I had time to develop one into a respectable length, but the other 5 were quite rudimentary. I'm entirely in agreement with the idea that we need depth in articles. I fully intend to flesh out all these articles, but it takes a little time. I was grateful to John Jones for his message in my Sgwrs page, which was helpful. But maybe it was just a little premature to slap on the deletion warning less than three hours after the article was created. I felt as if I'd been rapped over the knuckles. Shouldn't contributors be given a day or two before the warning appears? Craigysgafn (sgwrs) 15:41, 9 Mawrth 2017 (UTC)
That usually happens - a day or two! Our policy is to allow 45 minutes before editing someone's work. On en, however, a banner would have been stamped within minutes, or the article taken down! Thank for your patience; I look forward to sseing the articles developed! Diolch i ti! Llywelyn2000 (sgwrs) 15:47, 9 Mawrth 2017 (UTC)
It's true it would have been tagged quickly on en, but it wouldn't have been deleted because a Google search would have confirmed notability so it wouldn't have qualified for speedy deletion. Never mind, at least we're all singing from the same hymn-sheet now. We probably need more meaningful tagging templates. Deb (sgwrs) 16:00, 9 Mawrth 2017 (UTC)

"Horshsam" [sic] Diolch[golygu cod y dudalen]

Hi Deb. Thanks for removing the dud "Horshsam" pages. I created the first one by clicking on a red link in the "Gorsaf reilffordd Horsham" page, not noticing that it was misspelled. From there the problem escalated when I made the disambiguation page, and it took a while for me to see what had gone wrong. I'd have fixed the dud pages myself, but I don't think I have the editorial privilege, do I? As you'll have noticed, I've been trying to knock some shape into the England locations. It's going to take an age to make them into what they need to be. Thanks for adding various bits of interesting info to some of these things: it's what's needed in the long run, but for the moment I'll just stick to the spadework. BTW In the long term I'd like to see a different structure to the Infoboxes for English places: there are much higher priorities than having fields for Police, Fire and Ambulance, and the Rhanbarth field doesn't work properly - you can't put a link into it. Of course after Brexit the EU parliamentary details will be irrelevant, so perhaps we ought to be looking to that moment to make a change. Cheers. --Craigysgafn (sgwrs) 11:04, 10 Ebrill 2017 (UTC)

The problem is that if you enter "Llysiau'r neidr" (with an apostrophe) in the search box, it won't find the article, which renders it more or less invisible. Can someone with the right level of privilege make the fix to the title? Thanks. --Craigysgafn (sgwrs) 12:56, 24 Ebrill 2017 (UTC)

Gwybodlen llyfr[golygu cod y dudalen]

Hi Deb. I've noticed that there's a small problem with articles that use the Gwybodlen llyfr. If for instance you look at the The Welsh Language (llyfr) page you edited a short while ago, you'll see that the main text starts a line lower than on a normal page. What's happening is that the blank line in the code between the infobox and the main text is being interpreted as a line break. That doesn't seem to happen for any of the other infoboxes that I've looked at, where that blank line in the code just disappears when the page is rendered. Not a big deal, admittedly, but it's a bit distracting. And in the last resort one can delete the blank line in the code, though that's tedious. Is this easy to fix? I'm a bit wary of experimenting with infobox coding myself: I can see that there's the potential for nasty side-effects. --Craigysgafn (sgwrs) 16:51, 12 Mai 2017 (UTC)

Roedd bwlch ar ol yr Infobox, cyn testun yr erthygl. Jyst dileu hwnnw! There was a space between the infobox and the article text. Just delete the space. I'm not sure, but it might be possible to configure BOT-Twm Crys to delete these unwanted gaps. Diolch am sbotio! Llywelyn2000 (sgwrs) 08:46, 13 Mai 2017 (UTC)

Diolch Deb. Duncan Brwon is one of Wales' most notable naturalists; he's on Radio Cymru every week discussing this and other similar topics, helped organise the Wici Natur a month ago. He logged out without knowing, so IP address shows. PS He's the editor of Llen Natur. Llywelyn2000 (sgwrs) 19:41, 15 Mehefin 2017 (UTC)

Croeso Template[golygu cod y dudalen]

Hi Deb. I've found that many new users are confused by the old Croeso template, so I'm thinking of a one liner, which would be less pain for new users - they find it dificult to undersatand how to navigate to the space below it, to answer a message etc. Give me a couple of days! Any thoughts what it should contain? most of the links are on our front page, so perhaps only a couple would be simpler and more efficient? Llywelyn2000 (sgwrs) 07:35, 21 Gorffennaf 2017 (UTC)

Sounds like quite a good idea. Deb (sgwrs) 09:06, 21 Gorffennaf 2017 (UTC)

Croeso![golygu cod y dudalen]

Hi Deb. I wonder if this line is more of a welcome, less obtrusive, and simpler for new editors to find discussions on their Talk page? The Template is followed by info that tells the user to delete the line when they have finished with it. This is the text:

{{Croeso}}<!--Gelli ddileu'r linell hon wedi i ti ymweld a'r dolennau. Dyma dy dudalen Sgwrs-->

Just a suggestion! Cofion cynnes! - Llywelyn2000 (sgwrs) 06:40, 30 Gorffennaf 2017 (UTC)

Machine translated articles about fast food restaurants[golygu cod y dudalen]

There are machine translated articles about fast food restaurants being manufactured in this Wikipedia and other languages. These are the ones written in that are still here but not deleted. They are:

I've actually been to Hardee's and Whataburger, but I hadn't heard of Smashburger before. The machine translated articles are presumably being written by people being paid to write these articles. A&W Restaurants is another article that was written by these IPs, but it was actually fixed. Here's what I need to know: are any of these articles worth keeping or fixing? Because in Irish Wikipedia (ga.wikipedia), Malagasy Wikipedia (mg.wikipedia), and some other languages, the machine translations are being deleted as irreverent, but are they actually notable in Welsh Wikipedia? I have also been to Wendy's as well for another example of one being written that was deleted in Note that it was never created in this Wikipedia.

These machine translations are similar to those of en:WP:LTA:BF101, aka The Disney Vandal. Even The Disney Vandal has written about notable movies before that were deleted, like for example Tangled. Note that Delwedd:Tangled poster.jpg still exists. Only a few articles Bambifan101 has written are still unprotected, and several still need cleanup. It would be good if the articles were unlocked so that they can be corrected since so many are inaccurate. Either unlocked or lowered to semi-protection, since most of the protected articles are on full protection. In fact, even legitimate users of this Wikipedia have asked to make edits to these articles, look for example on Sgwrs:101 Dalmatians II: Patch's London Adventure and some other talk pages. There are inaccuracies with the spelling, grammar, and content of these articles. Also look at Sgwrs Nodyn:Ffilmiau animeiddiedig Disney. The template needs updating of movies on it, and the Interwiki links need to be taken off. One is even incorrect; it links the English article as en:Disney theatrical animated features and not en:Template:Disney theatrical animated features. Rapunzel was also renamed to Tangled while King of the Elves was shelved. Instead Wreck-It Ralph was released that year (2012). Note that Wreck-It Ralph is another notable movie whose article was deleted. Meanwhile Zootopia and Moana were never created. But all of these movies I mentioned that were deleted or never created (Zootopia, Moana, Tangled, and Wreck-It Ralph) are arguably more notable than restaurants like Smashburger since I've never been to Smashburger but have seen the movies I mentioned. In fact, I even own them. Although I have yet to see Coco, which is currently in theaters, but I have updated the page Rhestr ffilmiau animeiddiedig Disney to note that it's already out. Thank you for hearing this. 2602:306:83A9:3D00:D138:CC74:53F6:EE68 19:01, 30 Tachwedd 2017 (UTC)

Diolch! Deb (sgwrs) 19:11, 30 Tachwedd 2017 (UTC)
Another one was created: Sonic Drive-In. Pete's Dragon needs to be moved to Pete's Dragon (ffilm 1977) so that Pete's Dragon (gwahaniaethu) can be moved to Pete's Dragon. It's part of the vandalism left over by Bambifan101. Also check out these articles:

That, and the edits thrown out here, here, and here. There were some good edits being thrown out, besides the red links. See Sgwrs Defnyddiwr:Llywelyn2000#Machine translated articles about fast food restaurants for more info on this. 2602:306:83A9:3D00:2DA4:34EB:DE5D:264E 16:08, 3 Rhagfyr 2017 (UTC)

Should Sonic Drive-In be deleted? They deleted the restaurant articles in Irish Wikipedia for not being notable. However, they kept the movie ones like Tangled and Wreck-It Ralph, even though they were deleted here. I asked Defnyddiwr:Ham II if he is interested in creating the articles about the movies I mentioned, but I haven't seen him reply yet. Can you ping him about it? I still want these articles improved. 2602:306:83A9:3D00:7024:BF6A:7F2F:BFD8 15:34, 10 Rhagfyr 2017 (UTC)
I tagged Sonic Drive-In for deletion. Also, upon further inspection, I noticed that the deletion log has more than just one or two pages in it, it has 13. 2602:306:83A9:3D00:1190:F31E:6F83:F3AC 21:33, 23 Rhagfyr 2017 (UTC)

Fandal Disney[golygu cod y dudalen]

Bore da Deb. Many of the articles (eg this one) you've removed protection are being vandalised (same one!). Can you please protect them indefinitely. It's not just cywiki they're attacking, but there aren't many of us here to be wasting our time trying to play his little game. Diolch! I unprotected a few too, so I'll try and retrace my steps and get them locked down! Llywelyn2000 (sgwrs) 09:26, 26 Rhagfyr 2017 (UTC)

Looking at my log, I only unprotected a couple and I've tried to take appropriate action. Deb (sgwrs) 11:23, 26 Rhagfyr 2017 (UTC)
