ithank you but, what i wrote was just general.[edit]

It was not a lot of info to make that section to be for a specific file type. It was just general info about a file that can have errors. There was no need to delete the whole subject since there other file types that can have errors. A good edit could be one in which you can list the file types that can have errors, since that way that section wont be off topic or something like that.

@Doorknob747: Do you have a source that says Windows (? The section said "Microsoft") moves ZIP differently from other file types? That makes no sense to me. The only difference today should be that a piece of corrupted text file can make sense to most humans, while even an uncorrupted ZIP file would make little sense to most humans, and maybe some programs wouldn't try to read it without asking the user first. --AVRS (talk) 15:40, 3 March 2014 (UTC)

DRM and obsolescence[edit]

I added a note to the talk page; in most cases it doesn't really qualify since unless a company's business plan includes going broke, there isn't any real ability to make money from loss of the entire service. I suppose if there were some example equivalent to, say Google totally shutting down their app store and then opening a new app store where no previous purchases were honoured, that would count, but it'd be suicide in terms of consumer relations. I don't recall anyone ever actually trying to pull a stunt like that.

A more valid example, perhaps, would be software licenses and download codes; if the manufacturer stops offering the product for download, you have to purchase the new version of the product or do without; this is most likely to be a viable source of revenue with utility software like word processors or rendering software. You could also bring up central server-based videogames, especially on consoles; in theory a publisher could shut down the servers for one of their old games just as they release a new one, though there would be no guarantee this would result in players migrating. That's probably been tried before, though I can't think of an example offhand. Herr Gruber (talk) 12:06, 6 March 2014 (UTC)

Thanks much[edit]

Thank you for your link fix to Censorship of the Internet at article that I've recently performed a Quality improvement project on, Think of the children.

Much appreciated,

Good work spotting the apparent sock accounts. Are you planning to raise an WP:SPI about this? If "spam Wikipedia by replacing so-called dead links with your client's blog" is in an SEO playbook somewhere, the same spammer may have socks active on unrelated articles. --McGeddon (talk) 12:04, 29 November 2014 (UTC)

Hello,

you have added content to Uherský Brod shooting article. There is currently ongoing discussion on the talk page regarding a disputed deletion of content. I would like to invite you to share your view on the issue.

Thank you and best regards, Cimmerian praetor (talk) 21:04, 9 March 2015 (UTC)

At the moment I can say that "pentagenerian" and "sextagenerian" are very rare words. --AVRS (talk) 21:16, 9 March 2015 (UTC)

Updated scripts[edit]

Hi AVRS. I edited your sandbox.js to update you to the latest version of TemplateScript. You were using a much older version called regex menu framework, so the main difference you'll see is an improved regex editor (along with many new features for text snippets and scripting). I also updated deprecated functions. Let me know if anything breaks. :) —Pathoschild 05:31, 28 March 2015 (UTC)
