Request for Help, please[edit]

Greetings Mr. BiT,

Nice to meet you.

Could you kindly help me translate these passages into the unique and interesting Icelandic language? please.


Your help would be very Gratefully Appreciated, Thankyou very much. --Jose77 (talk) 05:05, 10 March 2010 (UTC)

I'm sorry, I do not wish to take part in proselytizing. --BiT (talk) 05:59, 10 March 2010 (UTC)
Okay, that is your freedom of choice. I will respect it. --Jose77 (talk) 07:31, 10 March 2010 (UTC)
I think it's odd that you remove comments of my user talk without my permission and then delete my comments of your user talk after you approached me for help. --BiT (talk) 07:56, 10 March 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) 05:16, 20 June 2010 (UTC)

Recent changes[edit]

Your recent changes to Complement (set theory) and Parity (mathematics) seem to consist primarily of unnecessary addition of < math> tags, and (in the case of Parity) unnecessary addition of symbols when the words are adequate. If you wanted to write:

(\forall k \in \mathbb {Z})2k+1 \mbox{ is odd},

it might make sense, but the mixed formulas and text is just jarring. — Arthur Rubin (talk) 06:30, 27 October 2010 (UTC)

Aren't words also adequate in the formal definition of relative complements? --BiT (talk) 03:40, 28 October 2010 (UTC)
I'm actually not convinced of that. There are too many pronouns to be sure of the meaning. — Arthur Rubin (talk) 08:39, 28 October 2010 (UTC)
In that case I'm sorry, I thought <math></math> was preferable to normally written formulae. --BiT (talk) 08:46, 28 October 2010 (UTC)
Only in displayed formulas. Inline <math></math> is to be avoided, and certainly to be avoided if it can be done in text. — Arthur Rubin (talk) 08:51, 28 October 2010 (UTC)
Isn't the example in Parity something that should be <math></math>'d though, something like "∀k ∈ ℤ" looks far more legible as \forall k \in \mathbb{Z} and the small explanation I added makes it all very clear in my opinion. --BiT (talk) 12:25, 28 October 2010 (UTC)
In retrospect my excessive LaTeXisation does seem unnecessary. --BiT (talk) 12:29, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

AfD and PROD notifications[edit]

Hi BiT,

Back in November, you got either an AfD or PROD notification, which was part of the template testing project's experiments. If you could go here and leave us some feedback about what you think about the new versions of the templates we tested (there are links to the templates), that would be very useful. (You can also email me at mpinchuk@wikimedia.org if you want.) Thanks! Maryana (WMF) (talk) 20:58, 17 February 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for November 12[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Colon (punctuation), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Haskell (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) 11:39, 12 November 2012 (UTC)

January 2014[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Foreach loop may have broken the syntax by modifying 3 "<>"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) 08:38, 11 January 2014 (UTC)
