Article .ilbm[edit]

Hello. I've undid your blanking of the article. If you believe that the redirect is unnecessary, please nominate the page for deletion at WP:RFD. It will be better if you can expand on the article if it's notable enough. If you have a question, please leave a question or comment on my talk page. Thanks KJ click here 23:20, 13 March 2014 (UTC)

The article and the two other redirects .iff and .lbm are fine, but .ilbm appears to be unsourced at the moment. –Be..anyone (talk) 23:24, 13 March 2014 (UTC)
What do you mean unsourced? I thought it looked like an alternative spelling redirect. KJ click here 01:18, 14 March 2014 (UTC)
Oops, no, I added lots of missing {{R from file extension}}, .ilbm was the one exception where I went for "not really". –Be..anyone (talk) 01:23, 14 March 2014 (UTC)
Oh, I see. You can go to WP:RFD with this, I think. Maybe nominate it for deletion? KJ click here 04:21, 14 March 2014 (UTC)
It's not harmful needing an RFD, only unnecessary. I tried an obscure redirect category instead of blanking. –Be..anyone (talk) 09:16, 15 March 2014 (UTC)
The same hack now also on .dib, BMP file format has the reference why that is bogus/dubious. –Be..anyone (talk) 17:30, 18 March 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 15[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Progressive Graphics File, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page PGF (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) 08:50, 15 March 2014 (UTC)

Yes, that was intentional, with a help request on the talk page. ;-) –Be..anyone (talk) 09:11, 15 March 2014 (UTC)

Re: JXR[edit]

That ended up on the relevant talk page, all opinions from 3rd parties welcome (there, here would be odd.) –Be..anyone (talk) 17:20, 18 March 2014 (UTC)


Hi, I'm curious about the purpose of the {{-}} you have put in the "Terms" section of the WTFPL article.

Best, Malparti (talk) 21:48, 28 October 2014 (UTC)

@Malparti:, now I'm also curious (after an unscheduled+unintended login after about seven months... well.) Okay, I added it in section Terms, and the purpose of {{-}} is to break some floating right or left content (image, infobox, whatever) before it pushes normal content to the bottom. IOW, you might see no problem at all with a wide display or a small font, but I saw a problem and fixed it based on a "works for me" (now) observation. That's bogus if it's only me, otherwise it's fine.
The version 1 sub-section contains the preformatted license <pre> stuff </pre>, that needs the full width, and some floating content would push it down with an ugly empty gap between the sub-section header and the license. –Be..anyone (talk) 15:21, 11 November 2014 (UTC)
@Be..anyone: Well that's weird because it seems that adding {{-}} caused the very problem you were trying to solve on my laptop : with a 1366*768 and fonts within the 12-16 range, it creates a big gap between the H1 (Terms) and H2 (Version 1) headers. For instance, with my default settings the empty space is 2.6 cm (instead of 0.5 cm), which looks weird. Before that, everything was OK. I've used Browserstack to see what it looks like with other settings -- same problem (though admittedly it seems that my settings make it pretty extreme). So I'll remove it (also because it is more coherent with the idea of using a markup language, in my opinion). If you come up with another solution for your problem, feel free to ask me to test it.
Best, Malparti (talk) 16:12, 11 November 2014 (UTC)
ACK, it also creates that gap for me, but at least the sub-section header is where it should be. Just (try to) shuffle the {{-}} around, obviously we want the same thing. ;-) –Be..anyone (talk) 08:37, 12 November 2014 (UTC)

January 2015[edit]

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Wikipedia:The answer to life, the universe, and everything. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Please be particularly aware that Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

In particular, editors should be aware of the three-revert rule, which says that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. While edit warring on Wikipedia is not acceptable in any amount and can lead to a block, breaking the three-revert rule is very likely to lead to a block. If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection.

Wrong venue. Please move to Wikipedia_talk:The_answer_to_life,_the_universe,_and_everything:
JFTR, one edit, three reverts, one constructive contribution. – Be..anyone (talk) 05:31, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

Sticking to English and letting historical pages rot.[edit]

This is probably the longest and most incomprehensible URL you've seen in quite a while:

Yet it seems to me to be proof that this edit (much like the one before it) ... even in a foreign langauge, was gibberish.

Happy Wikiing! Jsharpminor (talk) 02:09, 8 January 2015 (UTC)

Impressive, and a clear winner for "incomprehensible". For "longest" I recently stumbled over an SVG nominated as quality image on commons with a huge embedded (data: URL) raster image. That data: URL (26,000 lines) managed to crash one of the Chrome extensions for images.Face-smile.svgBe..anyone (talk) 05:25, 8 January 2015 (UTC)
