Barnstar[edit]

Barnstar of Reversion2.png The Anti-Vandalism Barnstar
For beating me to vandalism on Huggle many times, including three in a row on my own user page. Thanks for your work, dffgd (talk) 13:24, 21 June 2010 (UTC)

Huggle[edit]

I'm sure you know this but when I look at your contribs, I don't see you warning any users for your reverts. It's best to warn the user why you reverted their edit- use q not r. Thanks!  – Tommy [message] 12:44, 26 June 2010 (UTC)

I don't warn on the first revert as a gesture of WP:AGF, if however they edit inappropriately again after that then I issue a warning. tutterMouse (talk) 12:47, 26 June 2010 (UTC)
Ah okay.  – Tommy [message] 12:54, 26 June 2010 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Canal 24c.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Canal 24c.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

PLEASE NOTE:

  • I am a bot, and will therefore not be able to answer your questions.
  • I will remove the request for deletion if the file is used in an article once again.
  • If you receive this notice after the image is deleted, and you want to restore the image, click here to file an un-delete request.
  • To opt out of these bot messages, add {{bots|deny=DASHBot}} to your talk page.

Thank you. DASHBot (talk) 05:47, 20 October 2010 (UTC)

{{expand}}[edit]

Please see the note here after your edit. I have cleaned it up now, but please do not use {{expand}} like this in future. The {{stub}} tag already asks readers to expand the article.

Please have a look at pages you edit after you have pressed "Save", or use "Preview", so that you do not leave pages with error messages like this. Thanks. Pam D 08:20, 15 November 2011 (UTC)

Sure thing, I wasn't aware of the deprecation of {{expand}} so will use something a little more specific next time. tutterMouse (talk) 15:46, 15 November 2011 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Bolívar Municipality, Barinas, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Simón Bolívar Municipality (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 10:43, 24 December 2011 (UTC)

Acknowledgment of review of article[edit]

I am acknowledging the message about the possible deletion of page Katie Harwood. I will gladly follow the recommendations for improvising the article. Since this is my first attempt at a real wikipedia article from scratch, I welcome your input. I will participate in any discussions and make changes as need. I just need a little time to learn my way through the process. Thanks. Tola73 07:43, 1 January 2012 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tola73 (talkcontribs)

I'm not sure if I'm the right person to ask for advice but as the person who nominated your article for deletion, I don't think the likelihood for your article being kept is very high. The article could be improved but has some fundamental issues which'd prevent it being a viable article for Wikipedia such as being written like an essay and whilst very well sourced which is commendable it's also got issues of being about a fictional character with a lot of the information about them being extrapolated or based upon your own viewpoint which isn't acceptable here. If you wish to make a new article, please feel free as your skills are very useful as long as the subject is notable and opinion is sourced and not your own. Article creation is great and you should alway look to make more but I'd also advise you to look at editing other articles too as it's always much better to edit a range of articles and to be equally focussed on each one and they don't need to be articles you create either. I hope you'll be able to move onwards and make Wikipedia better as a whole as we do need editors with great research skills as yours. --tutterMouse (talk) 12:58, 1 January 2012 (UTC)

Ephraim Stern[edit]

In a maintenence edit you put a period after a comma: ([[Persian Empire]],.<ref>). I know a minor thing. The reason for pointing it out is I see that you're using AWB and I've seen AWB cause problems in the past. Could be something to watch out for. Slight Smile 04:46, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

I'm well aware of the sort of issues AWB can cause but most issues are human in nature, AWB is only a tool. I'm very careful in my edits, most are incredibly small like moving commas and periods after reference cites but sometimes I don't bother to check it given how minor a slipup can be and how easily it can be ignored if you're not paying attention fully like commas right next to periods. Thanks for the considerate message though, nice to see I can't be too vigilant at this. tutterMouse (talk) 04:54, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

Heads up[edit]

A number of your edits aren't working out too well. These include Türnitz, Théâtre du Soleil, and The People's Music Awards. Perhaps you can take a look. I saw the exact same thing going on yesterday with another AWB user... I think something needs to be tweaked.  -- WikHead (talk) 19:32, 8 March 2012 (UTC)

Nope, that's all intentional. Some of the refs were removed couldn't be taken as refs and the changes from <references /> to {{tl:reflist}} are usually stylistic especially where I'm removing two markup elements. All AWB is doing in this case is making some general fixes, the rest is me. Thanks for being aware of my edits though, be sure if anything is being badly messed up, that'll be on me. tutterMouse (talk) 19:37, 8 March 2012 (UTC)
So you're just going to leave the articles the way they are? I understand what you're saying about the original markup being incorrect, but nothing here has actually been fixed. It's just a big mess left behind for someone else to deal with.  -- WikHead (talk) 20:01, 8 March 2012 (UTC)
Not at all but it is a mess which I'm certain shouldn't be generated on first glance. These issues have been caused by either a ref being transcluded from elsewhere which I'm very likely to miss if I'm only observing the markup (Türnitz) or because of a messy block of refs after the article (Théâtre du Soleil and The People's Music Awards) causing markup trouble. Those shouldn't be happening and whilst I want to say mea culpa for the issues, I didn't make them but in trying to fix them end up uncovering them. There will still be an issue with those articles, just there's no large red text to tell anyone about it. tutterMouse (talk) 20:22, 8 March 2012 (UTC)
Understood. I am however, a very firm believer that we're all responsible for the article version we leave behind, and if something's not going as planned in preview mode, we should never save the changes. After making a save, if something we've just done makes us say "yikes", it's always best to either self-revert or continue working it through before moving on to another article. Human error is to be expected of course, and good faith should always apply when something is accidentally missed or overlooked. Nonetheless, it's a pleasure having met you... have yourself a great day, and happy editing! :)  -- WikHead (talk) 22:03, 8 March 2012 (UTC)

Golden Shoe[edit]

Hey

You edited some information at this page. However the information you changed is not right.

Aleksandrs Čekulajevs scored this 46 goals for Narva Trans, not Valetta where he is currently playing.

When a player transfers to a new club, only the goals made at his former club are valid.

Kinds Regards,

Matthi1603 (talk) 18:45, 15 March 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for the information but I was not responsible for that content, I am only implementing minor fixes, no content is changed where possible. tutterMouse (talk) 18:57, 15 March 2012 (UTC)

heads up[edit]

The user you reverted has mentioned you here: Wikipedia:Administrator intervention against vandalism. IRWolfie- (talk) 19:04, 22 April 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, apparently I'm causing dissident by preventing the truth being heard. Anyway, seems like it's being handled elsewhere so thanks for the heads up and all. tutterMouse (talk) 19:14, 22 April 2012 (UTC)

Nomination of Baroness of Douglas for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Baroness of Douglas is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Baroness of Douglas until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

On your comment on Income tax in India[edit]

Since no other editor is currently expanding the article except me, mistakes are bound to happen. I am sure that I possess all the knowledge required to edit the article, since it forms a part of my course, but could you please enlighten me with the out of scope information on the page that needs removing. Thanks. You can reply here. Harsh (talk) 14:24, 17 November 2012 (UTC)

The issue for me isn't with mistakes but with the fact that because you're the only one editing you might be including everything you think is relevant though it might not be as part of WP:NOT. For instance, a lot of it reads like a how-to guide the government might issue to take people through how the tax works which isn't what we're here to do. Even though I say all that, it's way outside my knowledge area and looking at the other income tax articles for other countries they read basically the same, dry, overlong and bureaucratic which is fine as that's what income tax is like. Remove nothing, I can't possibly steer you the right direction not knowing which way you need to go but good luck on maintaining the article without most of your energies going into correcting edits. tutterMouse (talk) 17:04, 17 November 2012 (UTC)
Its so sad that no one is taking up the article. When I started with it, it was a complete mess, with out of date and missing information. And this is the issue with most India related articles. All I could do with it was read all feedback from AFT and add the info. Even before I started editing, there was some info which perhaps did not comply with WP:NOT, as you say. The article leaves a lot to be desired when compared to how Income tax in the United States is formatted/styled. If I remove the how-to-guide like info, then there won't be much left in the article to show. Thanks anyways. Harsh (talk) 13:13, 18 November 2012 (UTC)

Regarding RFPP....[edit]

....and to explain a little further: I was in a discussion with User:Scottywong about the templates which (to me and others) are not archived properly by snotbot (I had noted this especially for the not dones). The discussion can be found on Snottywongs talk-page, under RFPP and snotbot. Cheers. Lectonar (talk) 11:56, 8 March 2013 (UTC)

Yup, saw your discussion about it and would have gone and told him about it eventually. Still, should be easier now for admins clerking. tutterMouse (talk) 14:59, 8 March 2013 (UTC)

Disappearing discussion[edit]

Sorry about the massive deletions. I'm investigating. Special:Contributions/Cpiral will show this is not intentional. Something else seems to be technically wrong at our Wikipedia talk:Requests for page protection#Doctor quality

  • The sections are not editable, yet I have not changed my preferences.
  • Large portions of documents I work on disappear a lot recently.

The two technical problems 1)no edit tags, and 2)disappearing portions of the pages I work on? These should be taken as recent technical problems I'm investigating. I've been editing with the same techniques for years, and I lack for very little to solve such problems, except time.

IMHO I would violate WP:TPG to remove "damning" or inappropriate talk page material. I don't think I violated that policy. I did modify my own discussion page material. Do you think I went to far changing my own discussion points? — Cpiral Cpiral 09:23, 17 March 2013 (UTC)

The offering for debate is to try to get you on the subject matter anyone can bring. I won't do it anymore. They can be deleted without loss. It really doesn't matter who (I am, or anyone is). I happen to be an excellent editor and collaborator except for the occasional "don't do that" I get from opinionated editors like yourself. You want to investigate me? Please take a quick glance at my most recent

I've done a lot of work at Template:Val and its subpages. What I'm doing at WP:RFPP is I rewrote WP:page name and Help:page name and their talk space will reveal that wp:rfpp is a mere feeler: all your annoyance, just for my experiment. There are problems with my presence, but I firmly believe they should be solved by you, or your peers. I feel I know what I'm trying to do.

Your cooperation is invaluable. Please let's break off all personal problems, and attack the substance of the debatable points surrounding the wording on the topic page, or let's say nothing at all. I'm not going away beat by some brow, but I might go away for the love of a poor, overworked bro, running a dilapidated old template doc. — Cpiral Cpiral 09:23, 17 March 2013 (UTC)

I'll accept browser issues might have led to the inadvertent page blanking but it's fine, I fixed the problem but would prefer you make sure it doesn't happen whilst you're investigating and fix it when it does. This whole other thing though, I'm done because I've said my part and whilst I would like to ignore the issues, they're not surmountable by me because of your unwillingness to speak plainly, being insulting at times when confronted on the matter and a degree of belligerence in everything you write. This is ignoring that I doubt you'll be shifted on your opinion which kind of makes it a debate as opposed to discussion and consensus building. At the end of it all, I'm not the only one who is at RFPP often and I'm not the only opinion you should be looking for. I'm still not participating any further and whilst the "dilapadated old template doc" might not suit you, it might suit someone else besides me. Please do not pursue this further on my talkpage, thanks tutterMouse (talk) 10:26, 17 March 2013 (UTC)

Interview request: Your work with WP:Snuggle[edit]

I'm contacting you about a study that I'm running with TheOriginalSoni exploring newcomer mentorship activities in Wikipedia.

Huggle 3[edit]

Hey TutterMouse! I am Petrb, one of core developers of Huggle, the antivandalism tool, which you are beta testing (according to https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Huggle/Members#Beta_testers). I am happy to announce that Huggle 3 is ready for some testing. You can read more about it at WP:Huggle/Huggle3 Beta. Please keep in mind that this is a development version and it is not ready for regular use. That means you must:

  • Watch your contribs - when anything happens you didn't want, fix it and report a bug
  • Frequently checkout source code and build latest version, we change it a lot

If you find any problem with a feature that is supposed to work perfectly, please let us know. Some features are not ready yet, it is listed in known problems on Huggle3 beta page, you don't need to report these - we know it! So, that's it. Have fun testing and please let us know about any problems, either using bugzilla @ http://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/ or #huggle connect. Please respond to my talk page, I am not going to watch your talk page. Thank you Petrb (talk) 10:57, 14 November 2013 (UTC)

Huggle 3 beta is out - and we need more feedback![edit]

Hey TutterMouse, how are you? I am Petrb, one of huggle developers, and you are currently subscribed as a beta tester of huggle on meta (meta:Huggle/Members. You may not have noticed, but this week I released first beta precompiled installers for ubuntu and microsoft windows! Wikipedia:Huggle/Huggle3 Beta has all the links you need. So if you can, please download it, test it and report all bugs that is really what we need now. Don't forgot that as it's just a beta it's unstable and there are some known issues. Be carefull! Thank you for helping us with huggle Petrb (talk) 16:26, 29 November 2013 (UTC)

Regarding Skui skole Reviewing[edit]

-for your message on my talk page : Sure, I'd love to learn something!

- Well, since it was already tagged it with multiple issues, hence was already reviewed. That's why I thought there was no point in leaving it there for another reviewing. So, as now you have marked it unreviewed, I suppose marking an article as reviewed removes the tags? or something? I thought a tagged article would be already mentioned at the 'candidates for ...' page. I do not do this otherwise. What happens if a tagged article is marked as reviewed? Abhinav (talk) 17:27, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

Let's see if I can help you out then. Now, it was tagged but the creator removed the tags, I added them back but must have clicked for it to be un-reviewed accidentally and sent a message off automatically, sorry! If something is reviewed, it means it doesn't need to be checked by new page patrollers who are looking for bad articles. Un-reviewing won't remove tags but it'll send a message to the user who reviewed it. In this case, it's just a sloppy click giving you that message, not that it wasn't correctly reviewed by you. Which page do you mean when you mention "candidates for..."? tutterMouse (talk) 19:13, 26 March 2014 (UTC)
Two things:
1. So, was I right in marking it reviewed as it was already tagged by you?
2. When I said 'candidates for...', I referred to the list of pages mentioned according to the issues related to them, after their tagging. Like CSD, AfD, articles to 'wikify', cleanup, merge etc. In short, like ,most of the the articles displayed for editing on the WP:Community Portal.

Abhinav (talk) 19:47, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

Pretty much, doesn't matter who marks it as reviewed as long as it's been seen by someone. As for those, these work different and just add them to a category so they can eventually be looked at and fixed, there's no real designated place for them like XfDs besides bot-generated lists. tutterMouse (talk) 20:02, 26 March 2014 (UTC)
- Thanks for helping out. :) Abhinav (talk) 20:46, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

We need your help testing latest huggle[edit]

Hello,

I am sending you this message because you listed yourself on meta:Huggle/Members as a beta tester. We desperately need attention of testers, because since we resolved all release blockers, we are ready to release first official version of huggle 3! Before that happens, it would be nice if you could test it so that we can make sure there are no issues with it. You can download it packaged for your operating system (see Wikipedia:Huggle/Huggle3 Beta) or you can of course build it yourself, see https://github.com/huggle/huggle3-qt-lx for that. Don't forget to use always latest version, there is no auto-update message for beta versions!

Should you find any issue, please report it to wikimedia bugzilla, that is a central place for huggle bugs, where we look at them. That is i mportant, if you find a bug and won't report it, we can't fix it. Thank you for your work on this, if you have any questions, please send me a message on my talk page, I won't be looking for responses here. Thanks, Petrb (talk) 15:18, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

Hey tuttermouse[edit]

Thanks for your contributions. Do you check your mail? I wanted to send one. OccultZone (TalkContributionsLog) 17:29, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

@OccultZone: I do check my email and you can feel free to send me a message if you want to but I am interested to know why you wish to email me. tutterMouse (talk) 17:44, 12 June 2014 (UTC)
I got some question about the program that you're using. Email sent. OccultZone (TalkContributionsLog) 17:50, 12 June 2014 (UTC)
@OccultZone: I see, usually I only allow emails if it's of a private nature but this one seems open enough so I'll answer here, hope that's okay.
WPCleaner is a pretty simple thing to use if you're using it to do WCW error repairing, specifically what you're looking for is "Project Check Wikipedia" and to get a list of whatever issue you think you can solve. WPC can solve a few automatically but best to doublecheck whatever it's upto as it's still your responsibility regarding the edits it makes. I use a set list of errors that I routinely go over but the easiest method is to click "Load all errors" and then use the dropdown to pick out something and then to load one or more of the articles listed on the left. When it comes to fixing them anything in red in the article body is something that it detected as in need of fixing based on which error on the left panel is selected, usually a right-click will give you the fix required but some do need manual intervention if they're automatic (as indicated by cogs next to the error on the left), simply missed by the parser or simply something it can't fix and needs some human input. When you've fixed it up (which I guess you're upto but best to cover everything) then click the button with a green circle and checkmark inside Approve icon.svg and validate it, if it's okay then press the paper plane button Gnome-document-send.svg next to it. There's a basic guide at Wikipedia:WPCleaner/Check wiki but be aware that though I know my way around the WCW part of WPC, the main use is with disambiguation and is a little different to just making gnomish maintenance edits. If you need any further help, please ask here and I'll try and help you through it! tutterMouse (talk) 18:18, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────@OccultZone:I see you decided to go with AWB instead, at least you've found a tool that you can use which is important though would have appreciated some feedback or at least thanks. tutterMouse (talk) 17:42, 13 June 2014 (UTC)

Thanks! I will reply you once I will be done of these procedures. Actually I am using AWB probably since after a few weeks when I had got it.(after making 2,500 edits and 19 articles I think) I want to review others bots, for reviewing them I need to know about the available semi-automated programs. That's how :-) OccultZone (TalkContributionsLog)
Ah, that does explain why you'd want to know about WPC too given it does have some bot tools. tutterMouse (talk) 18:40, 13 June 2014 (UTC)
Used WPC on about 60 pages. I think it is perfect for solving so many errors. Thanks a lot once again. OccultZone (TalkContributionsLog) 06:22, 14 June 2014 (UTC)

[edit]

Hi, I need following formats for logo:

  • original (svg) I guess it's totally resizable
  • .png (I can make this from svg) 128x128 px
  • .ico 32x32
  • .ico 64x64

Thanks, the originals are located at https://github.com/huggle/huggle3-qt-lx/tree/master/huggle/Resources (huggle3_newlogo.png and .ico) both there Petrb (talk) 16:06, 21 June 2014 (UTC)

@Petrb: Okay, the SVG version is here, PNGs you're handling and a few .ico files, one with sizes upto 256x256 (including 32x32 and 64x64 versions) and two standalones at the sizes you requested along with an .icns file for us Mac users. The icons are an issue because I am not at all sure how I should get them to you, some help? tutterMouse (talk) 18:30, 21 June 2014 (UTC)
You can send me an e-mail to benapetr@gmail.com then I will upload them to repo Petrb (talk) 13:29, 23 June 2014 (UTC)
@Petrb: Email sent. tutterMouse (talk) 13:56, 23 June 2014 (UTC)
@Petrb: Did you get the files? They're not up on the repo so I figure something went wrong. Also, out of interest, wont we need a new logo to replace this one? I would do it but as you've seen, I have very little patience with waiting around for things to happen so might want to give it to someone less likely to keep bugging you about it.

Thank you for cleaning up after me on AN3, I'm not familiar with all the templates. east718 | talk | 21:18, 30 November 2014 (UTC)

That's okay, at least you came and helped out which is what counts. It was also at RFPP not AN3 but if you don't clerk those areas frequently you're bound to get lost between them all. tutterMouse (talk) 08:28, 1 December 2014 (UTC)

Thanks and a question[edit]

Thanks for putting the Default Sort at Ernü Yingxiong Zhuan, with the message "DEFAULTSORT missing for titles with special letters - Spelling and typography"

In the future, I'd like to do it right (and save you some trouble) -- what is the difference between "Default Sort" and "with special letters"? Or should I just leave it to people who know what they're doing?

Cheers ch (talk) 16:53, 5 December 2014 (UTC)

@CWH: You're welcome and I'd be happy to tell you some more about it. There is no specific difference, just that DEFAULTSORT assists with sorting titles containing diacritical characters (such as the ü in Ernü) in categories, they and a few symbols are considered "special characters" but generally the point of the key is to have articles sorted without any characters that are unusual that can affect their position in a categorical listing. DEFAULTSORT also has uses for BLPs so they can be sorted by last name and generally is required where there's symbols in a title. Generally you won't want to add something like that to any article, it really has a small use case where certain characters need to be avoided. You can happily add it to articles you edit of course but usually someone will float by and add one, sometimes a bot and othertimes someone like me using a tool. You can read up a little more at Wikipedia:Categorization#Sort keys and Wikipedia:Categorization of people#Ordering names in a category if you really want to get into the practical uses of it. tutterMouse (talk) 17:40, 5 December 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the quick and practical advice -- I'll make a note of these references. I've learned that sometimes these "little" things make a difference in how readers can find things!ch (talk) 18:03, 5 December 2014 (UTC)

Johnny Byrne (footballer)[edit]

Hi TutterMouse; Noted your edit re duplication of categories on Byrne's page. I wonder if you could clarify? The deleted category (The Football League players) is a common cat. for players who have appeared for any of the English Football League's clubs. Looking back at previous versions of the page, I cannot see that this has been duplicated. I'm wondering if some confusion has arisen with the cat "The Football League representative players" which would be for those players who have been selected (from the League's clubs) for a team to play against a team selected from (for example) The Scottish League? Apologies if I have missed something or misunderstood. Thanks. Regards, Eagleash (talk) 15:39, 6 December 2014 (UTC)

@Eagleash: There was a duplicated category, I removed the second on line 109 (just above one for "The Football League representative players") but kept the other on line 96 (just above "English footballers"). I can understand the concern over confusion but I did double-check to make sure the deleted category is still in the article. I appreciate your concern and always welcome comments where confusion might arise in my edits and where I can offer guidance. tutterMouse (talk) 18:03, 6 December 2014 (UTC)
Hi, thanks I've figured out what was confusing me now! Regards. Eagleash (talk) 19:20, 6 December 2014 (UTC)

Huggle message[edit]

Hey TutterMouse! You are receiving this message because you are subscribed at https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Huggle/Members#Beta_testers

I have recently launched a new downloads for beta testers that contains nightly builds of huggle, eg. versions that are built every day from our master branch and contains latest huggle. These builds are currently provided only for Windows and Ubuntu. You can find them here: http://huggle.wmflabs.org/builds/

Please keep in mind that these don't have any automatic updates and if you download and start using nightly build, you will need to update it yourself! So don't get yourself to running old version, it's possible to install both stable and nightly huggle, which is what I suggest.

Keep the bug reports coming to phabricator: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/maniphest/task/create/?projects=Huggle Many thanks! Petrb (talk) 10:04, 28 January 2015 (UTC)
