Henrik's google search[edit]

You appear to have User:Henrik/sandbox/google-search in your monobook.js. It now seems to work in the new Vector skin, should that be of use to you. If so, load the updated code from Henrik's page into your vector.js page, clear the cache, and you should be away. --Tagishsimon (talk) 23:36, 8 June 2010 (UTC)

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 04:53, 20 June 2010 (UTC)

Freedmans Bureau edit[edit]

Hello,

I wanted you share a funny story with you. Today the TA for my history class was scolding us for using Wikipedia to study for exams(she call it WikiDon't) She was yapping about how Wikipedia is wrong and that anybody can change it and we can be studying the wrong thing. After her preaching she goes to Wikipedia pulls up the Freedman's Bureau page and edits it to say that the Freedman's Bureau helped African Americans for thirty years(instead of ten), and then continues to say that now some poor kid is studying the wrong thing and is going to fail his class because he will look dumb and she says that the page will be wrong for DAYS. I wanted to scream and tell her it will not take days, if anything only mere hours. Thanks for restoring the page in less than 30 minutes. You have proven me right and verified my faith in Wikipedia.

Cheers from Houston, TX —Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.151.210.244 (talk) 00:18, 19 October 2010 (UTC)

Haha, nice story. You are welcome. Arthena(talk) 07:56, 19 October 2010 (UTC)


Hi, There's some steam gathering on Reddit about this post: http://www.reddit.com/r/funny/comments/dt2ve/history_ta_vs_wikipedia/ —Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.195.208.136 (talk) 11:40, 19 October 2010 (UTC)

Interesting. Thanks for the notice. Arthena(talk) 13:17, 19 October 2010 (UTC)
Some people in that thread are suggesting that I must have been in that history class to have known about the TA's edit. I was not in the class. I found the edit because it was flagged as potential vandalism by the anti-vandalism tool STiki. Arthena(talk) 13:28, 19 October 2010 (UTC)

Block[edit]

Hello Arthena, Could you do Wikipedia a favor and please block IPs 75.150.67.34 and 70.90.114.137? Thank you! Amerivg (Not logged in) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.150.67.34 (talk) 13:07, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the message. I'm not an admin, so I can't block someone myself. If 75.150.67.34 does some vandalism today, the adress can get blocked through WP:AIV, because the IP recently got a level 4 warning on their talk page. As for 70.90.114.137, I only see one incident of vandalism (3 edits within a few minutes) in the last year, so probably the IP will first another warning or two before a block (if it gets to that). I'll keep an eye on their edits and make necessary warnings/block requests. Arthena(talk) 13:22, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

New version of STiki software available[edit]

Hello there. I've noticed you are a frequent user of my software tool, STiki. First, I wanted to thank you for your use of my tool. Second, I wanted to inform you that a new version just became available (see this post on STiki's talk page for a brief summary of changes). I encourage you to download it! Further, keep your bug reports and feature requests flowing in. STiki has now reverted over 25,000 instances of vandalism, and I hope together we can help this number continue to grow. Thanks, West.andrew.g (talk) 05:00, 28 November 2010 (UTC)

Vandalism un-reverted[edit]

Just letting you know you actually re-introduced the vandalism in this edit on the Difference page. Anyhow, I think I really fixed it now. Vadmium (talk) 07:51, 20 January 2011 (UTC).

Ahh oops, thanks for catching it. I was a bit rushed that session, because there seemed to be a lot of old vandalism, and I didn't have much time. Normally I double-check the edits, but I didn't do that this session. Arthena(talk) 18:49, 21 January 2011 (UTC)

STiki session killed[edit]

Hey Arthena, saw that you were actively using STiki -- but I had to push an update to the server at that same moment. Pretty sure this killed your active session. But all should fine (i.e., if you restart, all should run smoothly) and it was not a bug. Thanks and look for a new version in the next few days. Thanks, West.andrew.g (talk) 21:10, 30 January 2011 (UTC)

Oh alright, thanks for the notification. Arthena(talk) 21:12, 30 January 2011 (UTC)

History of Beaumont[edit]

Hello Arthena, I noticed that you were analyzing some changes happening in the History section of Beaumont, Texas. I recently wrote an article about Beaumont for the Russian Wikipedia and was considering all available references. I could not find anywhere the names which were present in the (previous version of) first paragraph of Beaumont's history section. Basically, I substituted that paragraph with my description of what can be found in Handbook of Texas Online, which seems to be consistent with other Wikipedia articles. I commented out the old paragraph — it can be restored if there is some evidence... By the way, I could not find an independent online sourse about Alexander Calder either (and have no access to the referred book). — Adavyd (talk) 04:11, 22 February 2011 (UTC)

External link in Symmetric matrix[edit]

Prescott Bush article?!?!?!?[edit]

What UNCOSTRUCTIVE about my editing of the Prescott Bush article?!?!?!? I was simply adding information that made the article more accurate. Please contact me at riezman@gmail.com to discuss this. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 99.191.126.92 (talk) 18:59, 27 April 2011 (UTC)

Hmm, maybe I was wrong. If an unregistered user adds a nazi reference to an article, then 99.9% of the time it is vandalism, so that's why I classified it like that. The fact that there was no edit summary also made it more likely to be vandalism. Arthena(talk) 19:06, 27 April 2011 (UTC)

Non-free rationale for File:Narutaru.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Narutaru.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 12:03, 11 August 2011 (UTC)

SDLP Youth Page[edit]

Hi Arthena,

You recently amended the page in relation to SDLP Youth to re-add a paragraph in relation to the sexuality of a member of that group. That Paragraph is untrue and therefore makes the page an unreliable source of information about our organisation. I would hope that you could ensure that the aformentioned paragraph at the end of the campaigns section is removed permanently.

Thank you.

SMdeFaoite (talk) 09:18, 14 October 2011 (UTC)

Hello SMdeFaoite. The only edits I made to that article are this one and this one. I did not re-add a paragraph, I only removed an inappropriate message about contacting someone on facebook. Looking back, I should have just deleted the paragraph when I came across it, as it did not have the sources as required by the WP:BLP policy. In any case, it's deleted now. If it gets added back, it should just be deleted again. If it gets added back over and over, the article could be semi protected. I'll try to keep an eye on it.

June 2013[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Lighthill report may have broken the syntax by modifying 2 "{}"s. If you have, don't worry, just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

Thanks, BracketBot (talk) 11:31, 9 June 2013 (UTC)

Hello, apologies for my lack of formatting here, I'm not familiar with wikipedia's formatting code and stuff like that, because I've never edited wikipedia. But I got this message from your username somehow http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:2.216.133.87#September_2011 despite never having seen that page or editing wikipedia before.
