We need your help testing latest huggle[edit]

Hello,

I am sending you this message because you listed yourself on meta:Huggle/Members as a beta tester. We desperately need attention of testers, because since we resolved all release blockers, we are ready to release first official version of huggle 3! Before that happens, it would be nice if you could test it so that we can make sure there are no issues with it. You can download it packaged for your operating system (see Wikipedia:Huggle/Huggle3_Beta) or you can of course build it yourself, see https://github.com/huggle/huggle3-qt-lx for that. Don't forget to use always latest version, there is no auto-update message for beta versions!

Should you find any issue, please report it to wikimedia bugzilla, that is a central place for huggle bugs, where we look at them. That is i mportant, if you find a bug and won't report it, we can't fix it. Thank you for your work on this, if you have any questions, please send me a message on my talk page, I won't be looking for responses here. Thanks, Petrb (talk) 15:10, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

Wiki Help[edit]

Hi Darkwind -- I am interested in revising and resubmitting the Arnott Inc. draft you reviewed and rejected back in October 2013 ...

Do you do such work as a freelancer or is all your Wiki work as a volunteer? Arnott has recently opened a European Union sales and distribution facility, and has significant PR external to its site as a result ... hoping this might help the Wiki effort?

My best contact would be email at gf7446@comcast.net

Name Change[edit]

Hi Darkwind,

I just changed a name on Sara Taylor's Wiki page. Since the creation of this page, she has married and changed her name to Sara Fagen. I am happy to provide you with examples of her new name but I would like to change her name to Sara Taylor Fagen.

You don't provide the "examples" to me, you cite a source in the article where you're making the change. See Referencing for beginners to learn how. —Darkwind (talk) 21:06, 22 April 2014 (UTC)

Just a quick question[edit]

Shouldn't this technically be a block for vandalism? If edit warring were the problem you'd need to block me as well. Evan (talk|contribs) 02:35, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

Reverting vandalism is not considered edit warring. Honestly, the specific block reason doesn't matter all that much. The anonymous user was inserting material that could be considered vandalism, but also broke 3RR in doing so. —Darkwind (talk) 02:39, 23 April 2014 (UTC)
That's pretty much what I thought. I just wondered if it also made a difference to block duration. It's been a while since I was active here, but I always remember 36 hours being the standard for vandals. Anyway, it's taken care of, so thank you! Evan (talk|contribs) 02:43, 23 April 2014 (UTC)
