section order[edit]

I reverted your changes to Oregon lights which moved the article sections around. Per WP:LAYOUT, the proper order of sections is See also, References, External links. All the rest of your edits are great! Thanks. —EncMstr (talk) 17:48, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

Rhabdomyolysis[edit]

Just a note to explain why I removed your additions to rhabdomyolysis. The newspaper article you cited added little to the academic references we are already providing about excessive physical exercise (of which pull-ups is an example). The references you added at the bottom of the article are all very good and meet WP:MEDRS, but a quick peek at the present version shows that they are already extensively cited in the article!

Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Daighi tongiong pingim, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Or, Bh and Gh (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.

refbegin and refend tag in external links[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your edit to today's featured article on Tom Swift. The "refbegin" and "refend" tags are not desired for the external links section. As the name indicates, those tags are used to group references, not external links. In any case, this is not a practice which is in wide-spread use at the English Wikipedia. I cannot imagine the case for using it (the formatting) is strong enough to justify its use. Jason Quinn (talk) 17:53, 19 March 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for September 30[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Ecsenius axelrodi, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Estados Unidos and Londres (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

TemplateData is here[edit]

Hey Cuaxdon

I'm sending you this because you've made quite a few edits to the template namespace in the past couple of months. If I've got this wrong, or if I haven't but you're not interested in my request, don't worry; this is the only notice I'm sending out on the subject :).

So, as you know (or should know - we sent out a centralnotice and several watchlist notices) we're planning to deploy the VisualEditor on Monday, 1 July, as the default editor. For those of us who prefer markup editing, fear not; we'll still be able to use the markup editor, which isn't going anywhere.

What's important here, though, is that the VisualEditor features an interactive template inspector; you click an icon on a template and it shows you the parameters, the contents of those fields, and human-readable parameter names, along with descriptions of what each parameter does. Personally, I find this pretty awesome, and from Monday it's going to be heavily used, since, as said, the VisualEditor will become the default.

The thing that generates the human-readable names and descriptions is a small JSON data structure, loaded through an extension called TemplateData. I'm reaching out to you in the hopes that you'd be willing and able to put some time into adding TemplateData to high-profile templates. It's pretty easy to understand (heck, if I can write it, anyone can) and you can find a guide here, along with a list of prominent templates, although I suspect we can all hazard a guess as to high-profile templates that would benefit from this. Hopefully you're willing to give it a try; the more TemplateData sections get added, the better the interface can be. If you run into any problems, drop a note on the Feedback page.

Disambiguation link notification for December 5[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help.

Wikilinking[edit]

Hi, and thanks for your work on the English Wikipedia.

I noticed an article you worked on. Just a short note to point out that we don’t normally link:

  • dates
  • years
  • commonly known geographical terms (including well-known country-names), and
  • common terms you’d look up in a dictionary (unless significantly technical).

(This even applies for infoboxes.)

Thanks and my best wishes.
