Reversion of Proxy firms[edit]

I am looking for assistance on your editing of an edit on proxy firms last week. Am attempting a BOLD edit which makes the page more comprehensive, global and topical. I have submitted a request to move the page to Proxy Advisor, the term most frequently used. Any guidance appreciated.Patience62 (talk) 18:44, 17 November 2014 (UTC)

Reversion of haptotaxis[edit]

I am curious as to your reason for reverting the haptotaxis additions last week. This is part of a class assignment and I think the student is a bit intimidated about asking you why. Would you mind providing us with some feedback? Thanks for your help and attention Jparcoeur (talk) 13:06, 9 November 2014 (UTC)

Your edits to Simon Mol[edit]

Great job. Instead of challenging, deleting, section blanking etc. - you fixed the mistakes. I hope you enjoyed the story. More to come, see its talk page. One more thing! Please make sure its not only india. Whole buddhism started from buddhas birth place which is nepal. And its really disappointing to see my own country not being written on the first paragraph!

Hello B! Would you please take a look at Draft:Ricki and the Flash and move it to Ricki and the Flash ? - Thanks.

Marcia Hines - NavBox[edit]

Hey there, I am writing regarding the deletion of the Nav Box that I tried to put at the bottom of Marcia Hines, I didn't think I had done it correctly, so I didn't mind that it was deleted; but do you have any info/link on how to create a NavBox please? I think (in her case) one is definitely required. Thanks in advanceTobyjamesaus (talk) 05:37, 7 November 2014 (UTC)

Tobyjamesaus. You almost had it right. The location was the main thing wrong. Looks at the other navbox in the article, {{Australian Idol}}. You want to create the navbox in template space (template:Australian Idol). That way, you can add the navbox into other articles with one line of code and you don't have to update every article when you update the navbox. Bgwhite (talk) 05:44, 7 November 2014 (UTC)
Excellent. Thanks for your info. I'll have another go at it on Monday. ;p Tobyjamesaus (talk) 05:59, 7 November 2014 (UTC)
Tobyjamesaus, Pffft, Monday? You Aussies are such wimps. :) A real Wikipedian would already have it done and filed a case at ANI about me. Give a yell if you have another questions. Bgwhite (talk) 06:07, 7 November 2014 (UTC)
hahahaha..... Wimps?! Whatever; All good. Ok, so I have tried to do it, but I am clearly missing something. I had a look at the Australian Idol one as an example, but I didn't want to edit that template. I am fairly new to this and not really getting it. Any chance could just create a basic template for her and I'll populate it? Or I can copy and paste it all in here? Or if there is a guide for me to follow, I'll do that too. Tobyjamesaus (talk) 01:40, 10 November 2014 (UTC)
Tobyjamesaus, I think you were over analyzing this. I created {{Marcia Hines}} and added it to the article, Marcia Hines. I also created some categories, specifically: Category:Marcia Hines, Category:Marcia Hines songs. I added all the necessary overhead to the categories and also to Category:Marcia Hines albums.
On any of the articles for Hines' albums, you can add {{Marcia Hines}}. This is where the power of templates lies. One template on many articles. Need to change something, just change the template and not all the navboxes on each individual album. I'll let you look at what I did, as it would be easier than explaining it. Bgwhite (talk) 06:10, 10 November 2014 (UTC)
What a star! Thank you so much. I didn't put a tl at the start of the navbox, maybe this was the issue? anyway, all good. I have gone through and put the navbox at the bottom of her songs/albums already. Have an awesome week Tobyjamesaus (talk) 01:01, 12 November 2014 (UTC)
Tobyjamesaus, the tl is only for presenting the template on talk pages. In articles, you don't use tl. Bgwhite (talk) 01:14, 12 November 2014 (UTC)

Rb119 @C.Fred:. This is weird. This is not the first time I've seen this. Seen the exact same edits made elsewhere over the past couple of weeks. For the life of me, I can't remember where, but some of them were disambig pages. Wikquote articles Singapore and Ketuanan Melayu have been hit as well. There's even a Wikia page. I'm guessing they are code being sent by spies before the big invasion by Mars, the Borg or whatever alien planet my mother-in-law is from. Bgwhite (talk) 08:03, 9 November 2014 (UTC)

Punctuation and footnotes.[edit]

Re [1] and [2], where the ref tag is moved to the right of the full stop, despite the ref only being for the last clause of the sentence, not the entire sentence. Should I now add {{failed verification}}, because the source doesn't mention the information in the 1st clause of the sentence, but the ref being outside the full stop indicates that it references the entire sentence? -- Jeandré, 2014-11-10t10:54z

Jeandré, there is no need for {{failed verification}} or any other template. The reference is sourcing part of the sentence, thus it is not a failed verification. Two things I can think of, you could break the sentence into two or you can add {{cn}} after the comma. I like these problems. Usually people don't add refs.

Deplorable situation regarding Marcelo Monte (racing driver) article[edit]

Hello Bgwhite,

I nominated the Marcelo Monte article for deletion because it does not comply at all with the WP:Golden rule, and the creator of the article has refused to add sources (see his talk page), plus I can't find almost anything about the subject (certainly no significant coverage online). However, he does seem to have raced in Stock Car Brasil, and the driver's article says that he drove in the 1984 24 Hours of Le Mans race, so I took a look at that article, and there he was. Therefore, and since one of the contributors to the Marcelo Monte article showed up in the AfD discussion showing signs of severe anguish, I withdrew the nomination citing WP:NMOTORSPORT as the reason for Marcelo Monte deserving a Wikipedia article, at least in theory.

But now I'm furious. I know that I've acted like a son of a b**** sometimes on Wikipedia (although I've made big efforts to improve in recent months), but I've always been honest. I can't tolerate outrageous unethical behavior. I knew that the creator of the Marcelo Monte article had uploaded a picture to Commons (twice), claiming to be the author, when in fact it was taken by someone else, so it was deleted both times (I notified Commons the second time, and then it was speedy deleted). However, I now have realized that the creator of the article (Mathias karl estress) is involved in equally serious code violations, if not worse. Marcelo Monte appears in the 1984 24 Hours of Le Mans article because he put Marcelo Monte in there, wiping out a legitimate driver. And that's not all: a non-registered user from Brazil did the same thing in the Portuguese version of the article, here. I have reverted both edits, but this is a very serious matter. You can't just tamper with history like that, to try to make your Wikipedia article look notable. Marcelo Monte did not race in the 24 hours of Le Mans in 1984, or ever. I found three entirely independent articles with the results of the 1984 race, proving that Mathias karl estress replaced Margie Smith-Haas with Marcelo Monte to enhance the notability of the article he created. An investigation would almost certainly confirm that Mathias karl estress has the IP of the user who modified the Portuguese Wikipedia article in the same way. And quite possibly the guy who got all frantic at the AfD discussion is also him (Flavio Teixeira Prado). Here are the independent sources (notice that there are some discrepancies concerning the finishing positions when you get to the DNFs, but that's to be expected). It was Margie Smith-Haas who took turns with David Ovey and Paul Smith, not Marcelo Monte: [11], [12], and [13]. Please, doesn't such immoral conduct have automatic serious consequences? I don't know the rules nearly as well as you do. I know you are very busy, so please take your time to reply. Thanks in advance. Dontreader (talk) 23:41, 10 November 2014 (UTC)

Thank you very much, Bgwhite. Actually, earlier today I felt quite sorry for the guy who got so frantic about the article being possibly deleted, so I really tried to find sources, even doing advanced searches in Portuguese, for example. Ironically, that's how I found out that Marcelo Monte never raced in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and that the English and Portuguese Wikipedia articles about the 1984 edition had been altered to include Marcelo Monte. But I shouldn't have felt sorry when that guy (probably the same guy who created the article), was begging for mercy. I spent a lot of time in the AfD discussion telling him how Wikipedia works and what he had to do, giving him many links to read, but he did nothing to improve the article. Plus a highly deceitful plot was carried out with obvious premeditation. I had never seen anything nearly that bad happen on Wikipedia. Thanks again for your time and help. Dontreader (talk) 06:20, 11 November 2014 (UTC)
Dontreader, you were writing here while I was writing too. "I've acted like a son of a b**** sometimes on Wikipedia", Pffft, sometimes? Hah, that is a funny one. I'm still waiting for my signed photo, but I guess somebody is lying to me.  :) Well I placed a BLPProd on the article way back when and no reliable reference was ever added. They had a Wikipedia page and a dead link as references. I guess Flavio claimed the dead link was his blog, and that doesn't count as a reliable ref. So, I just deleted the page under BLPProd.
  1. Your first mistake was actually believing Flavio when there was no proof. You withdrew your AfD without any proof presented. Doesn't matter if they are lying or being truthful, proof has to be shown.
  2. On the AfD, you should have moved the discussion to their talk page. The discussion was about referencing and they were not understanding. When it comes to a person who really doesn't understand English, I try and find someone who knows their language.
  3. Nothing should be done to Flavio at this point. They are new and odds are they will go away at some point, usually because the figure out they can't get their own way. If Flavio had been around awhile, then it would be different, but it would a more difficult job. They would have friends and they would know how to game the system.
I'd wager they will create the page again or ask me why it was deleted and that would be a long discussion. Nothing to do now. Nothing to get worried over or get steamed about. Wish it was that easy with all people, say a certain beer person. Bgwhite (talk) 06:25, 11 November 2014 (UTC)
Well, Bgwhite, first of all, I did have a relapse recently, showing my "son of a b****" syndrome at the AfD discussion of The Wakes (band), but that was because I wasn't praying to my pagan gods for a few days, for serenity. Also, in general, I hold a grudge against society because I have never received a barnstar. Anyway, I had no clue that you had ever placed a BLPProd on the article. I'm slipping. Thanks for your advice regarding the AfD situation. Yes, you are completely right, for a change. I find it amusing that you saw my final message to Flavio! I was probably a bit too dramatic! Oh, and actually I'm getting along much better with the big beer fan. He does have some very valuable experience, and he's helped me twice over the past couple of weeks or so. I must thank him and hopefully there's something I can do for him. We have some things in common, I've realized now that I'm old and grey. Finally, Bgwhite, I have exciting news for you: Camille and Kennerly will have their two CDs on sale (20% off and free shipping) early next month! What else can you ask for in life?

Florida Gators football tables[edit]

Bgwhite, I am all in favor of simplifying the wiki coding for wiki tables, etc., whenever possible, but your edit here, eliminated the visible table header colors and column header text for several of the tables you were simplifying. Could you fix, please? Thanks. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 10:14, 11 November 2014 (UTC)

Dirtlawyer1, sorry about that and thank you for telling me. Hopefully it's fixed now. Bgwhite (talk) 19:07, 11 November 2014 (UTC)

Bot working on Airline codes-N[edit]

There already was a {{reflist}} in Airline codes-N via transclusion in the correct place. You added a second one at the bottom of the page. Vegaswikian (talk) 17:02, 11 November 2014 (UTC)

Vegaswikian, I saw something was off when all the Airline code articles popped up on the list for the second day in a row. Your change to the template on November 9 is what caused the pages to show up on my list. The ref section shouldn't be in a template and it's only possible right now because of a recent change in the MediaWiki software. I want to say a bot also did this, but the person is no longer active. @Magioladitis: would know better than me. Bgwhite (talk) 19:18, 11 November 2014 (UTC)
I think we have to find a better way to deal with subpages and in general we should avoud reflists in templates. @Frietjes: would know better than me. -- Magioladitis (talk) 19:22, 11 November 2014 (UTC)
if it would help the bot, you could always change {{Airline codes/Page bottom}} to {{Airline codes/Page bottom|{{reflist}}}} or something. Frietjes (talk) 19:44, 11 November 2014 (UTC)
Yes, that could work. The reason this belongs in the transcluded code is for it the section to appear correctly, before the external links section. Vegaswikian (talk) 20:23, 11 November 2014 (UTC)

Incorrect terminology on Cli-Fi[edit]


Cli-Fi is an abbreviation for climate fiction and should be stated as such. In fact, this whole page should be deleted with a real page on "climate fiction" just like "science fiction" has. For instance, people say "cli-fi" but people also say "sci-fi". Sci-fi does not have an entry in Wikipedia, and neither should "cli-fi". It is simply an abbreviation for the climate fiction genre. This is supported by media and explained in my recent revisions (see the Talk page). §

Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood vandal(s)[edit]

Since you were so helpful to us in the Cyberchase issues of anonymous IPs vandalizing the page, I wanted to ask if you might consider intervening on another page, Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood, which has been repeatedly vandalized by anonymous users with only an IP address. The information they are adding is spam and has no basis in fact. They are trying to suggest that future episodes of the show will mirror plots of other well known programs such as Dr. Who and other such ridiculous things that have no basis in fact. They have been warned repeatedly to stop vandalizing the page or risk being blocked. Would you please put some protection on this page so only registered users can edit it and/or block the troublesome IP spammers? Thanks for intervening. I will be watching this page anxiously for your response. Thanks again! --Jgstokes (talk) 07:06, 15 November 2014 (UTC)

Jgstokes, I've put page protection on for one month. If you have any more problems after then, give me a yell.
When I saw Dr. Who, I was expecting a sci-fi show, not a kids show. That thru me for a loop. Unless there is a reference for the December episodes, I'd suggest you remove those. I will get even with you... I've got Mr. Roger's singing in my head right now. Bgwhite (talk) 07:26, 15 November 2014 (UTC)
It was in the episode description. Someone claimed that in one of the episodes, The Doctor (and Daniel) had to fight an intergalactic battle of epic proportions. I'm glad to see people appreciating Doctor Who, but I don't feel that gives them the right to vandalize pages. Thanks for doing this. There is a reference for the December episodes--local listings and listings available on reputable TV guides. But it was felt and agreed by consensus that rather than citing these references to validate episode descriptions (since it is just a kids' show after all), it would be better to merely note on the talk page where the descriptions came from, which we did. I can think of worse things happening to you than having a Mister Rogers song in your head. But I won't say what I mean by that as it would just get something annoying stuck in your head. Thanks again. I owe you big time! --Jgstokes (talk) 07:35, 15 November 2014 (UTC)

How do I start a new page from a disambig page?[edit]

I know you moved an article out of my sandbox successfully once but I still dont know how to do it. Please advise.--Wuerzele (talk) 16:48, 16 November 2014 (UTC)

Wuerzele I'm not exactly sure what you are asking, so I might not be giving the right answer. You can move an article in one of two ways. (1) There should be a "move" button under the "more" option at the top, next to "edit", "read", and "view history". (2) Add a tool, such as User:MusikAnimal/MoreMenu. It includes a move option.

References getting lost in the AWB wash[edit]

In this AWB-assisted edit, you lost two (weirdly formatted, but still present) references without any indication in the edit summary. You were then reverted to fix a false positive spelling correction, then you re-instated the other changes, including the reference dletion. Those were the only references in the stub of a BLP; it was PRODded yesterday. It would've been a shame if that led to an article on an otherwise evidently notable topic being deleted. Please be more careful with automation and scrutinise your edits more closely. Facing the Sky (talk) 17:56, 20 November 2014 (UTC)

Facing the Sky, for the life of me, I don't know why I removed the Quill & Quire ref. I remember reading it because that ref was the only thing keeping me from prodding the article. I removed the other ref because it was from a book selling site. The BLPProd that was added was not a valid prod. There were two refs in the article. The ISBN are enough to prove she wrote the books, thus no BLPProd. Remember, people make mistakes and AWB does not mean automation edits. People always fall seeing that.

Re: KiRaKa[edit]

Good morning. I noted your message and the reversion of my edits, undoing the edits your bot made to what I'd done. I think. Anyhow, the reason I was reverting your bot was that I had no idea what the heck it was doing and why it was changing something I didn't think was wrong. Now you have pointed me at WP:REFPUNCT, I won't do it anymore. As far as I've always been concerned, punctuation goes at the end of a sentence. Nothing goes after it. That's why I was complaining about the bot correcting my English. I trust you understand, at least I hope you do :) CharlieTheCabbie|Yack to the driver 01:11, 21 November 2014 (UTC)

For the sake of variety, the Harp Twins[edit]

Hi Bgwhite,

1. Something happened that I'm sure you will find super exciting. You see, for the first time ever, a band that Camille and Kennerly covered was shared by the official Facebook page of the band... and it's a huge band (at least in the tiny village they are from). Here is the feature. Please, do you think this is notable enough to be mentioned in some way, shape, manner, style or form in their article? Or not? If not, feel free to enumerate at least 10 reasons.

2. And although this other feature is in Spanish (also in Portuguese), I strongly believe it would be a great external link. We could sacrifice the YouTube channel in that section. It's a highly informative two-minute interview with them, conducted by EFE, while they were in Paraguay for the World Harp Festival. There is no danger of copvio since the website is MSN. Here it is. The only bad thing is that a pigeon flies behind them at one point, reminding me of pigeons I saw when the crowd of voices in my head was telling me to jump from the roof of a building. Anyway, please let me know if it seems like a good external link. Thanks in advance for your time and help. Dontreader (talk) 08:01, 24 November 2014 (UTC)

Dear Bgwhite, you know better than anyone else everything that I've had to endure for the sake of those girls, yet now they ignore me. I can live with that, but if you decide to ignore me, then that would really be the end of the world for me! I'm assuming you forgot to reply. Also, I'm sorry if the David Bowie video seemed too weird. Just a joke, as usual. Thanks as always, and maybe, just maybe, if you are really nice to me, I'll send you the CDs as a Christmas present! Dontreader (talk) 07:19, 26 November 2014 (UTC)
Dontreader, crap. Yes I forgot. Unfortunately, I forget easily. If you don't hear from me, always bug me. I will look and drool tomorrow. If you don't hear from me after Thursday, it is because I spent alllllll day Thursday with the mother-in-law and I killed myself. Bgwhite (talk) 07:45, 26 November 2014 (UTC)
God forbid. Please listen to harp music before and after the visit (and during the visit, too, if possible). That will calm you down. But don't show her the sexy Harp Twins poster you bought :) Dontreader (talk) 18:19, 26 November 2014 (UTC)
Dontreader, my wife already found the poster and burnt it. She is after all, the spawn of Satan. I don't think either links could be added. The first is a Facebook link and there is nothing that can be used. If the interview was in English, then I'd say add it. Is there another interview in English that would be helpful? Bgwhite (talk) 21:30, 26 November 2014 (UTC)
What a shame. The exact same interview is available only in Spanish, Portuguese, and also in Esperanto. However, I appreciate the fact that you checked what I sent you. I'm not hurting too badly because those young ladies have let me down big time. Luckily the Backstreet Boys (my true idols) have plenty of pages that I can edit.

BG19bot misplacing References section[edit]

Hi. Please take a look at this edit. Is there a way to have the bot recognise that {{airport-dest-list}} is not a footer template, so that it can correctly place the missing References section below the template? --Paul_012 (talk) 14:18, 24 November 2014 (UTC)

Paul 012, first off, thank you for fixing the article. This is an AWB issue, so the question should be asked at AWB's talk page. But, this is also a case of garbage in, garbage out. Bgwhite (talk) 18:05, 24 November 2014 (UTC)

Nice to meet you and thanks![edit]

Just wanted to say thanks for the edit and reference help! Very best, Newbie with my wiki-water-wings on

Why did you revert my edits?[edit]

Can I know why you reverted my edits here, here and here? What was wrong in those edits? --Jayarathina (talk) 06:02, 25 November 2014 (UTC)

Jayarathina, you are using template programming inside an article. This is usually not done. You took an easy to update table and made something that 99.9% of all editors can't deal with. Either keep as a table or do a template. If you do a template, combine them into one as they all revolve around Lent. Similar to the one in Easter. Bgwhite (talk) 06:23, 25 November 2014 (UTC)
Thank you for the clarification. I will create a template. (Please do give an edit summary if you revert edits in the future.) --Jayarathina (talk) 06:37, 25 November 2014 (UTC)
There was no way enough space to give an edit summary. It had to be done on a talk page. It was done intentionally to ask a question. Bgwhite (talk) 06:44, 25 November 2014 (UTC)

What should be done with table of Sergej Maslobojev and others?. Master Sun Tzu (talk) 09:32, 27 November 2014 (UTC)

Master Sun Tzu, it would be helpful if you told me what "done" means and go into details. What I did to the table: 1) remove redundant formatting. 2) remove the highly complex and inappropriate <div class="NavFrame">. This class is used to collapse material in templates. 3) fix broken syntax 4) removed having a table inside a table 5) fix accessibility problems. Bgwhite (talk) 20:07, 27 November 2014 (UTC)
Table shouldn't look like this, we can agree with that. What should i do to make it look regular? Master Sun Tzu (talk) 09:32, 27 November 2014 (UTC)
Master Sun Tzu, what do you mean by "regular". What are you going for? Bgwhite (talk) 20:21, 27 November 2014 (UTC)
This is how table should look like: Semmy Schilt. This is how table shouldn't look like Sergej Maslobojev or Dragan Jovanović. Shall I just copy table from Schilt's article and that's it? Master Sun Tzu (talk) 21:55, 27 November 2014 (UTC)

Block of[edit]

I see that you blocked (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · edit filter log · WHOIS · RDNS · RBLs · http · block user · block log) indefinitely for vandalism. It's the IP's third block, but it's still bad practice to indefinitely block an IP. Is there something I'm missing with this IP where the block should be indefinite? —C.Fred (talk) 14:21, 27 November 2014 (UTC)

Tibbia College page edit[edit]

I'm Mayank.94 You edited tibbia college page and removed the content why so please specify Thanks you can leave me a message on my talk page — Preceding undated comment added 11:40, 28 November 2014 (UTC)

Mayank.94, please sign your message with ~~~~. Without signing, I didn't know who you are.
The edit summary says unreferenced. You added a paragraph without actual references. You did add "references", but you didn't give the website and they are broken. There is no way somebody else can find your "references". Just giving the title and a name doesn't help anyone find them. You also did the exact same "reference" twice in a row, which doesn't make sense. Bgwhite (talk) 23:03, 28 November 2014 (UTC)
