You need to know this

"Ello, Arfur!

In the AA template, to link to the Commons category, you should just do it like this: commonscat=Enid Blyton. If you do this, commonscat=Category:Enid Blyton, then the link goes to a page on Wikimedia Commons called Category:Category:Enid Blyton which, obviously, doesn't exist.

Similarly, you shouldn't include the word "Author" for links to English Wikisource, or it's equivalent for links to Wikisource in any other language come to that. So you should write en_wslink=Enid Blyton. If you write en_wslink=Author:Enid Blyton, then the link goes to a page on Wikisource called Author:Author:Enid Blyton. And you won't be surprised to hear that page doesn't exist either.

Anyway, I'd like to say a big "thank you" to you for everything you've done here. Thanks for proving me wrong about this wiki not having a future.

Spuddily yours, Simon Peter Hughes (talk) 12:25, 6 January 2019 (UTC)

Ooo this is what happens when I don't look at the template properly before using it. Ta. Arthur (talk) 15:29, 6 January 2019 (UTC)

New Zealand

Hi. What is happening with this wiki and New Zealand? Also, what is the correct donation address for nonstandard amounts?   — Jeff G.please ping or talk to me 02:10, 13 January 2019 (UTC)

We are moving to New Zealand because South Korea extended their copyright term to life+70, effective from 2014 onwards. The donation link does seem to only be for giving $5. I will pester Jeremy about it. Arthur (talk) 13:04, 13 January 2019 (UTC)
Thank you. Beware Crown copyrighted works and New Zealand stamps first published after 1944, New Zealand currency, and photos of still-copyrighted 2D "graphic works" should not be uploaded here. Is the address valid for ad-hoc use in PayPal?   — Jeff G.please ping or talk to me 14:47, 13 January 2019 (UTC)
None of the contact email address are in any way linked to Paypal but this will be addressed and more flexible donation options will be made available shortly. I promise. Arthur (talk) 20:21, 13 January 2019 (UTC)
Thanks again.   — Jeff G.please ping or talk to me 03:38, 14 January 2019 (UTC)
Paypal link allowing for the "any amount" field. Note that those are New Zealand dollars it is displaying, not USD. Jl22388 (talk) 21:33, 15 January 2019 (UTC)
