Hi Pat,

I really appreciate the help :)

Kind regards Sam888 (talk) 00:40, 20 March 2021 (UTC)

Your welcome, happy to give back :) Patsy B Lefebre (talk) 22:34, 24 March 2021 (UTC)

Patsy, thank you for creating the Emyoulation dummy wiki account. Unfortunately, the confirmation email vanished into the ether. (Not in SPAM or trash. I suppose it could be delayed somewhere.)

Could you delete the Account so I can try again?

Thx either way!

Learned something new about mediawiki in that I can not delete your dummy account according to this ! That is unless a few extensions are installed to handle it, I'll email Sam and ask if is possible? Patsy B Lefebre (talk) 03:40, 7 April 2021 (UTC)

Curiouser and curiouser! I suppose it makes sense to not delete. Wonder if they've considered merging? Fortunately, aging & never used pages (like some User Page and Discussion pages) could be deleted to thin down an overloaded collection of pages. (Since they will offer to create a new page rather than give a 404 error.)

I finally received a Account Creation notification. (Thank you!) You created the Emyoulation on Tuesday and the notification message timestamp matches but it showed up in my mailbox on Thursday! I wonder if the mail server is set to batch?

The other odd thing is that the new user doesn't show up in User Category list. It looks like Sam did added a [[Category:User|B]] with a "(Thank you for your contribution :))" edit note to my User Page after I added a few contributions. If he did that manually instead of automatically, it would help keep the User Category from getting too cluttered by looky-loos.
