Spaces in cartridge names[edit]

Dougher, I've noticed that you've been adding spaces into the names of various cartridges on a number of firearm articles. Now, this is not actually correct in this case, but it is a common misconception. When you actually look at how regulatory organizations and firearm reference sources write them, you notice that in those cases they do not use spaces. Now I am aware that the MOS specifies spaces in measurements, but in the case of cartridges, these are not actually measurements, they are names and designations, and in some cases the actual measurements differ from the name. No specific examples come to mind, but a number of cartridges in the .35-.38 calibers are called .38s even though some are in fact around .35.--LWF (talk) 01:39, 23 October 2008 (UTC)

Requested article[edit]

Hi Dougher,

FYI there is now an article on Leonardite. Does this cover the usage that made you ask for the article to be created? If not, let me know and I'll expand the article accordingly. Cheers, Mikenorton (talk) 12:10, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference[edit]

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and you will still be able to manually mark your edits as being minor in the usual way.

For established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. With the script in place, you can continue with this functionality indefinitely (its use is governed by WP:MINOR). If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 19:26, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

September 2011[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute to the encyclopedia, one or more of the external links you added to the page HKS 700E do not comply with our guidelines for external links and have been removed. Wikipedia is not a collection of links; nor should it be used as a platform for advertising or promotion, and doing so is contrary to the goals of this project. Because Wikipedia uses nofollow tags, external links do not alter search engine rankings. If you feel the link should be added to the article, please discuss it on the article's talk page before reinserting it. Please take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing constructively to this encyclopedia. Thank you. - Ahunt (talk) 09:58, 23 September 2011 (UTC)
