Removing other user discussions
 I don't really care about others removing discussions from my talk page, but others might - particularly because any change to a user's (talk) page results in a big yellow "New message" box. Which is exactly what's mentioned in Help:Discussion. -- Alad (talk) 19:51, 14 February 2019 (UTC)
Move root用户 to root 用户
Can you help me move redirection root用户 to root 用户? (no redirection left) this is because I forgot to add a space between “root” and “用户” when creating this redirection. There should be a space between English and Chinese. thank you! -- Blackteahamburger (talk) 15:21, 3 May 2020 (UTC)
- Thank you very much. -- Blackteahamburger (talk) 15:28, 3 May 2020 (UTC)
О статьях Localization
Привет. В общем, мы с Максом тут подумали, что лучше будет переместить русскоязычный контент по локализации из Localization (Русский)/Russian (Русский) в Localization (Русский). У индусов и китайцев всё сложно — несколько языков, разные алфавиты, м.б. там сложные конструкции с подстраницами на английском и имеют смысл. Но в нашем случае всё несколько проще, лишние страницы плодить ни к чему. Можешь переместить страницу без редиректа? -- Duodai (talk) 16:40, 3 February 2021 (UTC)
You removed my page
Hello, my username is Aggam, and you removed a page I made, CEMU, which is now at https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/User:Aggam/CEMU. Why did you do that? can you move it back?

- No. Explanation was already provided to you: ArchWiki is not intended to document Windows software that can be run on Linux. Please go to Wine AppDB and write your articles there. -- Svito (talk) 18:09, 7 February 2021 (UTC)
Unofficial installation guide
Hi, you deleted my page as unofficial guide. I was trying to make Arch more approachable by new users since the Windows dual boot guide was not easy to follow. Could you have instead of deleting it discuss with other mods and ask if you need it? I spend 8 hours on this.
I don't want my article here, I will publish it elsewhere. I might even get paid for visits instead of trying to do a good deed and getting spat in my mouth.
Following is to the Arch "community" in general. Also, any Arch forum is basically filled with tryhards pointing and debating out how you are doing everything wrong. At this point to me it seems like Arch community is uninviting, elitist, and delusional. Uninviting = don't try to learn it, Elitist = my opinion is better than yours, Delusional = whatever you're doing around Arch is probably not your job, so lighten up. You're not writing a peer-reviewed science article and you have not acquired some magical knowledge. Expecting this to be deleted as well and business continuing as usual, because that's usually how stuck up communities work..

- I did not delete your page. I have no capabilities to do so. All the unofficial guides reside in User namespace. There is nothing wrong with hosting your personal guides on the wiki in User namespace. We just make no extra effort to check if your user guide is correct. It's already an undertaking to maintain existing guides, which as you might have noticed are not perfect.
- If existing dual boot guide is not easy to follow you could have suggested specific improvements or described problems you had with it on its talk page in the first place instead of rejecting other people's contributions as "not easy to follow" an spinning whole new guide. Articles on ArchWiki are written with Help:Reading#Organization in mind. Help:Editing#Creating pages points out:
- Is your topic worthy of a new page? Search the wiki for similar articles. If they exist, consider improving or adding a section to an existing article instead.
- Lastly please don't vandalize talk pages, especially deleting previous talk or inserting your discussion in the middle of existing one. See Help:Discussion on how to use them.

- I later noticed it was moved to my user page, but I deleted it for now. It probably won't be read by many as an user page. My point was not to make a replacement or reject the original guide, it is as good as generic guide for dual booting can be. However, the generic nature also makes it impossible to be used as a step-to-step guide to follow. So, I wanted to extend it by creating a step-to-step guide with specific scenario of dual boot with systemd-boot. In my mind that justifies a new guide since it would have helped at least past me and some other community members in the forum to create a working dual boot. It is really difficult to read through the dual boot main page, installation guide and tens of tabs while restarting your computer constantly. Editing my guide into the main page would just make the main page messy.
- I meant not to vandalize, edited my own language after finding out what has happened and where I should post what(first wiki experience). You can delete this thread, if you want.
