New huggle 3.1 is going to be released soon[edit]

Hi DVdm, we are to release a new major version of huggle, but we did receive almost no feedback from our beta testing team, which you are a part of (see It would be of a great help if you could download it (if you have windows, all you need to do is getting and putting it to a folder where you have installed huggle) and test it. You can always get a help with making it @ #huggle connect!

Major changes:

  • Multisite support - you can now log in to unlimited number of wikis in 1 huggle session and get a huge queue of all edits made to these wikis. This is good for smaller projects which gets overlooked often.
  • Ranged diffs - you can select multiple revisions and get a huge diff that display all changes done to them.
  • Fixes of most of bug reports we had so far

In case you found a bug, please report it to bugzilla: thank you! Petrb (talk) 10:08, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

Please stop[edit]

You do not WP:OWN my talk page. Please stop editing it unless the edit is the addition of a new comment. Muffinator (talk) 09:28, 2 August 2014 (UTC)

Right, I don't own your talk page. Remove all you want from it, but do not change my comments on it as you did here, here, and here again. You are also advised not to call a request not to change other people's comment disruptive, as you did here. . - DVdm (talk) 09:39, 2 August 2014 (UTC)
I did not change your comments. That first link is an addendum, not a change, the second is part one of a two-part undo process (I do not have rollback privileges), and the third is the same as the first. Advise me all you want. If I consider something disruptive, I will call it disruptive. Muffinator (talk) 09:50, 2 August 2014 (UTC)
The section title is part of the comment. I find your change repulsive. What would you say if I would change the title of this section here to "Please stop being an asshole"? Please undo this change. - DVdm (talk) 10:01, 2 August 2014 (UTC)
I would say the sentiment is very strong and a little uncivil. It may be confusing if a third-party is called upon to review the content, in which case the fact of which editor added "please stop" and which one added "being an asshole" would need to be clarified.Muffinator (talk) 10:07, 2 August 2014 (UTC)
Right, that is exactly what I think of your change to the title of my comment. You changed a neutral request into an extremely uncivil one. I would never open a section to another user's talk page asking "We're Disputing Content On Talk Pages Now? Are You Kidding Me?". So again, please undo that. Thanks. - DVdm (talk) 10:12, 2 August 2014 (UTC)

Dispute resolution notice RE:Retrospective diagnoses of autism and WikiProject tags[edit]

This is a notification to inform you that a discussion has been added to the dispute resolution noticeboard regarding a dispute you may be involved in. Muffinator (talk) 20:07, 7 August 2014 (UTC)


Something you are involved is being discussed at WPI. ttb Martin451 02:43, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

Danae Kara[edit]

Yes it was by mistake, I was trying to clear my sandbox where I had created the article and I had the wrong tab on! :D Thank you for restoring it - I got scared for a moment! :D --Cmagnet (talk) 12:37, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

No worries then Face-smile.svg - DVdm (talk) 12:38, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

Stop reverting[edit]

How is the permutation is more related to variation (in math) than the variation itself, [1]? Who told you if you know the correct place to put comment you should revert? Is it personal attack or mere vandalism? If you do not want to contribute to wikipedia just go away. Do not revert the connections that other people do. Why does everybody considers Wikipedia:Revert only when necessary rule as the one which needs to be violated? Does it makes you the owner of wikipedia when others turn away? --Javalenok (talk) 12:33, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

We have article talk pages to discuss this. - DVdm (talk) 12:34, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
Discuss what? I see that the place to place the comments was already decided, as well as variations have noting to do with variations, as opposed by permutation. The fact that this question is solved and there is nothing to discuss is your behaviour to revert without discussing anything. Do you expect that here are idiots around that you can scorn them as you like? --Javalenok (talk) 12:46, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
I'm afraid that you might have a problem expressing yourself in English. I have no idea what you are trying to say. Perhaps someone else understands what you have in mind. Please go to the article talk page to discuss article changes that you might have in mind. - DVdm (talk) 13:13, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

A beer for you![edit]

Export hell seidel steiner.png you were really fast on removing that message on my talk page, thanks! VeNeMousKAT (talk|contribs) 10:16, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
My pleasure. Cheers! - DVdm (talk) 10:23, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Brent Dixon[edit]

I blocked the account for 24 hours and I'm thinking about revoking talk page access since they seem to have moved there. You seem to be keeping up with this user, so if you think further admin action is needed, ping me and I'll see what I can do. Hopefully the user got the hint! Vegaswikian (talk) 20:25, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

Yes, I noticed. I guess something longer than 24 hours will turn out to be called for here Face-smile.svg. Cheers - DVdm (talk) 20:28, 28 August 2014 (UTC)


The edit had two references (talk) 20:39, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

Yes, but Wikipedia needs reliable, secondary sources, specially for biographies of living persons. See wp:RS, wp:BLP, wp:SECONDARY, and in this case most importantly, the consensus established at Talk:Eliezer Yudkowsky#SAT Score Request for Comment. - DVdm (talk) 06:53, 12 September 2014 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

Editors Barnstar Hires.png The Editor's Barnstar
Nicely done on the House of Cards revision of edits. You actually surprised me because when I read your message I thought "What? I don't recall editing House of Cards..." Then I saw I was logged out of my account and just happened to be the current holder of the IP address the poster had been using. DavisGL (talk) 16:37, 17 September 2014 (UTC)

Reverting my edit[edit]

Its ok..!! :) be careful haste makes waste..... Happy editing. ow@!s (talk) 09:37, 22 September 2014 (UTC)

Yep, I hit that revert button a fraction of a second after you did Face-smile.svg. - DVdm (talk) 09:40, 22 September 2014 (UTC)


Hello. Please reevaluate your revert of my edit of the article Parity (mathematics). I recommend that you actually read the section that you changed, Parity (mathematics)#Combinatorial_game_theory, and if it is still not clear to you, also read the citations referenced from this section. Thank you. (talk) 10:50, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

My apologies. Both I and user Skizzik should have looked closer. - DVdm (talk) 14:09, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for giving it a second thought :) (talk) 14:40, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

0 and 1 Swatch Internet Time[edit]

It's odd that you told me I should cite a source for saying that 0 is equivalent to 11 p.m. UTC in Swatch Internet Time, when I linked directly to the Swatch Internet Time page which says so. OK, sure, it doesn't contain the result of the calculation, but it's simple math. I shouldn't provide a citation that 1+1=2, if the rules for addition are provided. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Pudgenet (talkcontribs) 16:02, 4 October 2014 (UTC)


Hello there.

Just wanted to mention that the Zappa edit (apart from simplifying the "On commenting on" [which seems clunky] to "Commenting on") was intended to give a balanced view to the Barry Miles and David Walley points, in which they reference Frank's own mythologising of his music, and fall into the realm of 'fandom'.

I'll try to dig up a reference next time I wade in.

Yep, digging up references is what Wikipedia is all about Face-smile.svg - DVdm (talk) 14:09, 12 October 2014 (UTC)
