M80 Zolja??[edit]

"Hello, I'm 2Awwsome. I noticed that you recently removed some content from M80 Zolja without explaining why. In the future, it would be helpful to others if you described your changes to Wikipedia with an edit summary. If this was a mistake, don't worry: I restored the removed content. If you would like to experiment, you can use the sandbox. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks! 2Awwsome 13:06, 24 October 2013 (UTC)"

i was not the one who did it, just want to let you know. thank you. Tikapw (talk) 02:12, 25 October 2013 (UTC)

The True Story of Fanny Kemble[edit]

Hello 2Awwsome. I hope you saw my explanation. I was trying to undo a vandalism, and undid the topmost edit. Unfortunately, that person already did it a minute earlier, so I undid the wrong edit. If you look at my contributions page, I'm not exactly the type that vandalizes Wikipedia. (I used to teach in a university.) Titus III (talk) 23:44, 1 November 2013 (UTC)

Trick or Treatment[edit]

Please see the discussion on the article's talk page and the now-closed DRN regarding the particular paragraph you just reinserted. That source isn't a so much a source but the author's website, and the criticism wasn't from a third party but one new editor who noticed the website hasn't been updated in two years. Hardly relevant for a book's encyclopedic entry, and pretty much the definition of WP:OR. Blackguard 01:10, 6 November 2013 (UTC)

Please join the new discussion on the Carolina-Clemson rivalry talk page regarding South Carolina vs. Carolina so we can avoid future edit warring. Please join in at the bottom of the page. Thanks!--LesPhilky (talk) 16:44, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

Hello! There is a DR/N request you may have interest in.[edit]

This message is being sent to let you know of a discussion at the Wikipedia:Dispute resolution noticeboard regarding a content dispute discussion you may have participated in. Content disputes can hold up article development and make editing difficult for editors. You are not required to participate, but you are both invited and encouraged to help find a resolution. The thread is "Carolina-Clemson rivalry". Please join us to help form a consensus. Thank you! EarwigBot operator / talk 19:48, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

The case will be closed shortly unless the involved parties come to the page and begin a discussion.-- KeithbobTalk 01:11, 2 December 2013 (UTC)

AfD closure review[edit]

Hello! In light of the improper venue outcome of the DR/N discussion in which you participated, I am notifying you that I have asked Black Kite, the administrator that closed the AfD discussion for "Highest-valued currency unit", to review the result. The result of the discussion was "merge to List of circulating currencies" and I have asked Black Kite to reconsider the result because it appears that there was no consensus for the merge at the time of the discussion and because there is no consensus for the merge at this time. I invite you to give your opinion on the matter at the discussion taking place on Black Kite's talk page. I understand that this process has led to much contention between various editors. In the interest of expediency, I would like to suggest that you limit your comments to the issue of the AfD closure and not discuss any other issues. Thank you. – Zntrip 20:30, 26 November 2013 (UTC)

Your userpage[edit]

Hello, Awwsome one. I don't mean to be a spoilsport, but practical-joke message lines simulating the Wikimedia interface, like the one you installed on your userpage, are discouraged. Please see the policy here and the discussions here and here. I personally don't lose sleep over this sort of banner, though I have come across enough of them that at this point I find them annoying rather than amusing when I click on one; but in the past disputes have erupted and editors have been criticized for having these banners, and I would like to not see that happen here. Regards, Newyorkbrad (talk) 00:41, 28 November 2013 (UTC)

Deletion of false information from the SheZow page[edit]

I'm not entirely sure this is the correct way to leave this message, so forgive me if there is a more direct approach. The user at 108.30.153.105 has been repeatedly adding nonexistant characters and "predictions" of season two episode titles to the SheZow wikipedia page. There is no Season 2 announced, this person is re-entering his own fan-made characters into the cast and even adding links to the SheZow page on the pages of his/her chosen voice actors who have not and will not appear in the show. Obie Scott Wade (creator of SheZow) confirmed that this information is fallous on 13 Nov 2012 on his twitter here: https://twitter.com/SheZowCreator Below is the comment from the creator of the show.

Obie Scott Wade ‏@SheZowCreator 13 Nov

@sawi032 yeah someone has added a fictitious second season roster to the wiki page. there are several bogus actor's names added as well. 75.182.5.78 (talk) 16:49, 28 November 2013 (UTC)

RE: Revert on WP:SANDBOX[edit]

Hello, I'm K6ka. I noticed that you undid an edit by Lowercase sigmabot II. That bot cleans the sandbox every hour - it has no bias towards you or anyone else's edit. It's just doing it's job. Thank you, and do not revert again. K6ka (talk) 21:53, 29 November 2013 (UTC)

That revert was a test, which is what the sandbox is for ☺. 2AwwsomeTell me where I screwed up.See where I screwed up. 21:56, 29 November 2013 (UTC)

Careful[edit]

Just so you know, although the user who submitted the AfC on Samaila Ilya, is not Samaila Ilya. Due to a misunderstanding, the user created the account with the name he wanted to use for the article; he is not a 60-year-old Nigerian military commander. DS (talk) 23:10, 29 November 2013 (UTC)

Please let go on Rainbow Trout[edit]

You'll note on the talk:Rainbow Trout talk page that I am working with another editor to bring the article up to good article status for which it was nominated yesterday. Forgive the absence of comprehensive edit summaries, but you'll note that I've been trying to improve this article for the last couple of weeks and the recent edits are in response to advice from another experienced editor. You'll also note from this: Mike Cline that I am not inexperienced here. Thanks--Mike Cline (talk) 19:35, 30 November 2013 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: Zac Poor[edit]

Hello 2Awwsome. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Zac Poor, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: I've done my best to cut the WP:PUFFERY. If you disagree, it's fine by me if you re-nominate this article, preferrably for another reason. . Thank you. Shirt58 (talk) 13:32, 7 December 2013 (UTC)

Please help me rename/move the page Eszter Balint to the correct title spelling, from which it was incorrectly moved by someone[edit]

Hello, I'm bardybard. I noticed that you undid several attempts by me to try to remedy an incorrect move, from some months back, and put the article Eszter Balint under its correct heading/title. I admit that I am not experienced here, so have probably gone about trying to remedy this in incorrect ways, but I'm out of ideas. I am however probably the most experienced source in the spelling of my own name; there is no accent on the "a" in the last name. Someone had incorrectly created a new title with an accent, and I have been unable to redirect, copy paste, move on my own, etc. - and now am at risk of being locked out for "disruptive editing." Your help would be much appreciated. The correct spelling of my name can be easily verified by any search engine. Although there once was an accent on the "a," that has been omitted for over thirty years now, and "Balint" without an accent is the correct spelling, including on all official documents. Thank you. fc (talk) 16:12, 8 December 2013 (UTC)

Try WP:RM/TR 2AwwsomeTell me where I screwed up.See where I screwed up. 16:19, 8 December 2013 (UTC)

Thank you, I did that, and it didn't work, I got this: Template:Requested move is not for moves from user space, see Wikipedia:Articles for creation (use {{AFC submission|||ts=20131208171556|u=Bardybardy|ns=3}} instead), or move it yourself Again, any help much appreciated, this is quite frustrating and all caused by someone having incorrectly redirected,moved the page.fc (talk) 17:15, 8 December 2013 (UTC)

Canvassing[edit]

Hi, the case for retaining the chess.com article might be better served if you remove the {{canvassing}} tags from TROPD and Drmies. TROPD expressed similar views during the previous Afd discussion and there's really no reason to question either editor's integrity, which is the impression those tags create. Regards.

Jclemens[edit]

It not block evasion for an editor to edit, on a page he or she is allowed to edit anyway, under a fully disclosed alternate account. Many administrators, or others with advanced rights, have such an alternate account that they use on shared computers or in public places. This is an entirely acceptable practice and you should please not revert any more edits on this basis. Thank you. Newyorkbrad (talk) 20:17, 12 December 2013 (UTC)

  • Not to mention that Jclemens also holds checkuser and oversight permissions, and as such he should definitely be using an alt account from a non-private machine. Black Kite (talk) 20:26, 12 December 2013 (UTC)

In addition, please cool it with your baiting of Jclemens on his talkpage. What are you hoping to accomplish with that? It was bad enough that you reverted the post from his alternate account (without apology, I might add), but your continued posting there looks a lot like trolling. I assume from your "in school" banner that you're young, so I'll cut you more slack than I would otherwise, but please take this advice and stop. Mojoworker (talk) 21:58, 12 December 2013 (UTC)

You've been whacked with a wet trout.

Don't take this too seriously. Someone just wants to let you know you did something silly.

Because from your comments in the history of Category:International aquatic competitions hosted in Spain it looks like you have absolutely no clue, what's going on. Emptying categories outside of process is not okay. Armbrust The Homunculus 20:18, 16 December 2013 (UTC)

VisualEditor newsletter • 19 December 2013[edit]

Since the last newsletter, the VisualEditor team has worked on some toolbar improvements, fixing bugs, and improving support for Indic languages as well as other languages with complex characters. The current focus is on improving the reference dialog and expanding the new character inserter tool.

There have been dozens of changes since the last newsletter. Here are some of the highlights:

  • Rich copying and pasting is now available. If you copy text from another website, then character formatting and some other HTML attributes are preserved. This means, for example, that if you copy a pre-formatted suggested citation from a source like this, then VisualEditor will preserve the formatting of the title in the citation. Keep in mind that copying the formatting may include formatting that you don't want (like section headings). If you want to paste plain, unformatted text onto a page, then use ^ Control+ Shift+V or Command+ Shift+V (Mac).
  • Auto-numbered external links like [1] can now be edited just like any other link. However, they cannot be created in VisualEditor easily.
  • Several changes to the toolbar and dialogs have been made, and more are on the way. The toolbar has been simplified with a new drop-down text styles menu and an "insert" menu. Your feedback on the toolbar is wanted here. The transclusion/template dialog has been simplified. If you have enabled mathematical formula editing, then the menu item is now called the formula editor instead of LaTeX.
  • There is a new character inserter, which you can find in the new "insert" menu, with a capital Omega ("Ω"). It's a very basic set of characters. Your feedback on the character inserter is wanted here.
  • Saving the page should seem faster by several seconds now.
  • It is now possible to access VisualEditor by manually editing the URL, even if you are not logged in or have not opted in to VisualEditor normally.  To do so, append ?veaction=edit to the end of the page name.  For example, change https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random?veaction=edit to open a random page in VisualEditor.  This is intended to support bug testing across multiple browsers, without requiring editors to login repeatedly.

Looking ahead: The transclusion dialog will see further changes in the coming weeks, with a simple mode for single templates and an advanced mode for more complex transclusions. The new character formatting menu on the toolbar will get an arrow to show that it is a drop-down menu. The reference dialog will be improved, and the Reference item will become a button in the main toolbar, rather than an item in the Insert menu.

If you have questions or suggestions for future improvements, or if you encounter problems, please let everyone know by posting a note at Wikipedia:VisualEditor/Feedback. Thank you! Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 20:50, 19 December 2013 (UTC)

Come on[edit]

That's not a "real world" threat, that's stupid vandalism. Please don't do what the vandal wants and broadcast it all over. WP:DENY. I've removed the ANI thread, and it looks like the IP is already blocked. --Floquenbeam (talk) 17:10, 20 December 2013 (UTC)

G11[edit]

You've been using this a little too freely. It does not apply to basically factual articles. It does not, for example, apply to the school or the book that you used it for. Please re-read the relevant part of WP:CSD. DGG ( talk ) 19:22, 20 December 2013 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: Active 20-30 Club[edit]

Hello ☼. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Active 20-30 Club, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: Not unambiguously promotional. Thank you. — Malik Shabazz Talk/Stalk 15:33, 22 December 2013 (UTC)

December 2013[edit]

Information icon Hi ☼. Thank you for your work on patrolling new pages and tagging for speedy deletion. I'm just letting you know that I declined your deletion request for Reston Farm Market, a page that you tagged for speedy deletion, because the criterion you used or the reason you gave does not cover this kind of page. Please take a moment to look at the suggested tasks for patrollers and review the criteria for speedy deletion. Particularly, the section covering non-criteria. Such pages are best tagged with proposed deletion or proposed deletion for biographies of living persons, or sent to the appropriate deletion discussion. Could very well be an A7 though. Acather96 (click here to contact me) 21:50, 29 December 2013 (UTC)

The deletion rationale was A7 and G10, and it was full of puffery and possibly superlatives, I can't remember much of it. Dark Sun (talk) 09:53, 31 December 2013 (UTC)

VisualEditor newsletter for Janaury 2014[edit]

Since the last newsletter, the VisualEditor team has worked mostly minor features and fixing bugs. A few significant bugs include working around a bug in CSSJanus that was wrongly flipping images used in some templates in right-to-left (RTL) environments (bug 50910) a major bug that meant inserting any template or other transclusion failed (bug 59002), a major but quickly resolved problem due to an unannounced change in MediaWiki core, which caused VisualEditor to crash on trying to save (bug 59867). This last bugs did not appear on any Wikipedia. Additionally, significant work has been done in the background to make VisualEditor work as an independent editing system.

As of today, VisualEditor is now available as an opt-out feature to all users at 149 active Wikipedias.

  • The character inserter tool in the "Insert" menu has a very basic set of characters. The character inserter is especially important for languages that use Latin and Cyrillic alphabets with unusual characters or frequent diacritics. Your feedback on the character inserter is requested. In addition to feedback from any interested editor, the developers would particularly like to hear from anyone who speaks any of the 50+ languages listed under Phase 5 at mw:VisualEditor/Rollouts, including Breton, Mongolian, Icelandic, Welsh, Afrikaans, Macedonian, and Azerbaijani.
  • meta:Office hours on IRC have been heavily attended recently. The next one will be held this coming Wednesday, 22 January at 23:00 UTC.
  • You can now edit some of the page settings in the "options" dialog – __NOTOC__ and __FORCETOC__ as selection (forced on, forced off, or default setting; bugs 56866 and 56867) and __NOEDITSECTION__ as a checkbox (bug 57166).
  • The automated browser tests were adjusted to speed them up and bind more correctly to list items in lists, and updated to a newer version of their ruby dependencies. You can monitor the automated browser tests' results (triggered every twelve hours) live on the server.
  • Wikipedia:VisualEditor/User guide was updated recently to show some new and upcoming features.

Looking ahead: The character formatting menu on the toolbar will get a drop-down indicator next Thursday. The reference and media items will be the first two listed in the Insert menu. The help menu will get a page listing the keyboard shortcuts. Looking further out, image handling will be improved, including support for alignment (left, right, and center) and better control over image size (including default and upright sizes). The developers are also working on support for editing redirects and image galleries.

Subscriptions to this newsletter are managed at Wikipedia:VisualEditor/Newsletter. Please add or remove your name to change your subscription settings.

VisualEditor Newsletter—February 2014[edit]

Since the last newsletter, the VisualEditor team has worked on some small changes to the user interface, such as moving the reference item to the top of the Insert menu, as well as some minor features and fixing bugs, especially for rich copying and pasting of references.

The biggest change was the addition of more features to the image dialog, including the ability to set alignment (left, right, center), framing options (thumbnail, frame, frameless, and none), adding alt text, and defining the size manually. There is still some work to be done here, including a quick way to set the default size.

Looking ahead: The link tool will tell you when you're linking to a disambiguation or redirect page. The warning about wikitext will hide itself after you remove the wikitext markup in that paragraph. Support for creating and editing redirects is in the pipeline. Looking further out, image handling will be improved, including default and upright sizes. The developers are also working on support for viewing and editing hidden HTML comments, some behavioral magic words like DISPLAYTITLE, and in-line language setting (dir="rtl").

If you have questions or suggestions for future improvements, or if you encounter problems, please let everyone know by posting a note at Wikipedia:VisualEditor/Feedback. Thank you! Whatamidoing (WMF) 04:21, 20 February 2014 (UTC)

VisualEditor newsletter—March 2014[edit]

Since the last newsletter, the VisualEditor team has mostly worked on changes to the template and image dialogs.

The biggest change in the last few weeks was the redesign of the template dialog. The template dialog now opens in a simplified mode that lists parameters and their descriptions. (The complex multi-item transclusion mode can be reached by clicking on "Show options" from inside the simplified template dialog.) Template parameters now have a bigger, auto-sizing input box for easier editing.  With today's update, searching for template parameters will become case-insensitive, and required template parameters will display an asterisk (*) next to their edit boxes. In addition to making it quicker and easier to see everything when you edit typical templates, this work was necessary to prepare for the forthcoming simplified citation dialog. The main priority in the coming weeks is building this new citation dialog, with the ultimate goal of providing autofill features for ISBNs, URLs, DOIs and other quick-fills. This will add a new button on the toolbar, with the citation templates available picked by each wiki's community. Concept drawings can be seen at mw:VisualEditor/Design/Reference Dialog. Please share your ideas about making referencing quick and easy with the designers.

  • The link tool now tells you when you're linking to a disambiguation or redirect page. Pages that exist, but are not indexed by the search engine, are treated like non-existent pages (bug 54361http://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=54361).
  • Wikitext warnings will now hide when you remove wikitext from the paragraph you are editing.
  • The character inserter tool in the "Insert" menu has been slightly redesigned, to introduce larger buttons. Your suggestions for more significant changes to the special character inserter are still wanted.
  • The page options menu (three bars, next to the Cancel button) has expanded. You can create and edit redirect pages, set page options like __STATICREDIRECT__, __[NO]INDEX__ and __[NO]NEWEDITSECTION__, and more.  New keyboard shortcuts are listed there, and include undoing the last action, clearing formatting, and showing the shortcut help window. If you switch from VisualEditor to wikitext editing, your edit will now be tagged.
  • It is easier to edit images. There are more options and they are explained better. If you add new images to pages, they will also be default size.  You can now set image sizes to the default, if another size was previously specified. Full support for upright sizing systems, which more readily adapt image sizes to the reader's screen size, is planned.
  • VisualEditor adds fake blank lines so you can put your cursor there. These "slugs" are now smaller than normal blank lines, and are animated to be different from actual blank lines.
  • You can use the ^ Ctrl+ Alt+S or  Command+ Option+S shortcuts to open the save window, and you can preview your edit summary when checking your changes in the save window.
  • After community requests, VisualEditor has been deployed to the Interlingual Occidental Wikipedia, the Portuguese Wikibooks, and the French Wikiversity.
  • Any community can ask for custom icons for their language in the character formatting menu (bold, italic, etc.) by making a request on Bugzilla or by contacting Product Manager James Forrester.

The developers apologize for a regression bug with the deployment on 6 March 2014, which caused the incorrect removal of |upright size definitions on a handful of pages on the English Wikipedia, among others. The root cause was fixed, and the broken pages were fixed soon after.

Looking ahead:  Several template dialogs will become more compact. Looking further out, the developers are also working on support for viewing and editing hidden HTML comments. You will be able to see the Table of Contents change live as you edit the page, rather than it being hidden. In-line language setting (dir="rtl") may be offered to a few Wikipedias soon.

If you have questions or suggestions for future improvements, or if you encounter problems, please let everyone know by posting a note at Wikipedia:VisualEditor/Feedback or by joining the office hours on 19 April 2014 at 2000 UTC. Thank you! MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 22:44, 20 March 2014 (UTC)
