Hey, Sam888! Thanks for the welcome! --Chills (talk) 17:54, 21 February 2020 (UTC)

Thank you Sam888 (talk)
To make things easier, perhaps protect the pages that you don't want to be edited and then I'll know which ones that I am allowed to edit. If I make any mistakes, please let me know!
I think that you have made a grammar mistake. You spelled the word "note" wrong and forgot to add the "e" at the end. It doesn't matter, I have sorted it! --Chills (talk) 08:52, 24 February 2020 (UTC)
As mentioned by other person, please don't modify my message text in anyway. If I made a mistake then I made a mistake!! So long as you can understand what I'm attempting to communicate it should be ok. Sam888 (talk) 02:27, 25 February 2020 (UTC)

A bit offended

Uh, Sam888, my name isn't Chris, it is Dove, I am a female. My username is Chills. --Chills (talk) 10:05, 25 February 2020 (UTC)

Uh, auto-correction on mobile phone as the other person guessed!! Sam888 (talk) 05:38, 27 February 2020 (UTC)


Hello, Sam! Can I have your permission to have a page of myself on the mainspace? It will be about me being a contributor on this wiki. In fact, perhaps you could create it. Page name to be called: Dove Windsor. --Chills (talk) 09:47, 26 February 2020 (UTC)

Sorry no self promotion allowed on the Gramps wiki as it is only for the user manual and general genealogy articles. You may raise this on the Gramps users mailing list if you feel the Gramps project should changing to allow this, but I beleive wikipedia/your own personal website or your personal user page on the wiki are ok.

Are you a Gramps user?

By the way are you a Gramps user, what version (Gramps 5.1.2 is the current release)? I only ask as some of the edits do not match the messages and tooltips in the interface(for US English) so if you have an issue with the messages then a translation improvement should be made for the next release of Gramps, then when the user manual is rolled over the changes you have made would match, please be careful.

Did you intend to put this message on your own page, or on user Chills talk page? GulliblePangolin (talk) 05:17, 1 March 2020 (UTC)
Whoops, thanks for noticing! Sam888 (talk) 01:42, 3 March 2020 (UTC)

Protect pages of old user manual

Can you please protect the PT:Manual Wiki Gramps 5.0 user manual. Thanks GulliblePangolin (talk)

Mixed translations?


I think there maybe a mistake here.

Both the Index page and the Preface page I reviewed were translated to Brazilian. Is this intentional? If it is, I would need a different page set for Portuguese (maybe named Portugal?). I wouldn't want to destroy anybody's work.

Thank you.

Remove TrueOS from Download page

Hi Sam, TrueOS is gone. read: It's Official But Sad: TrueOS Is Over As Once The Best Desktop BSD OS] & [1]. Should I remove it or wait for the official announcement from TrueOS. GulliblePangolin (talk) 00:25, 29 March 2020 (UTC)
