A barnstar for you![edit]

In particular for the ongoing discussion on Star Trek into Darkness regarding a pesky little I. At the end of the day, it may not have been resolved but we all did work together to try and get it sorted, even if we did feel at times we were banging our heads on our desks and calling our computer screens idiots.

Hi douts

Just wanted to point out minor formals things to you that you might want to correct.

Here, you referenced sources, but didn't include the reference tags necessary for the links to show. Someone else has meanwhile added them. However, didn't you intend to have those links shown as something like
"see (1) and (2)" or
"see here and here"?

(you'd do that like this:
"see [http://ianbroudielightningseeds.wordpress.com/music/ (1)] and [http://www.bonjovi.com/en/music (2)]" or
"see [http://ianbroudielightningseeds.wordpress.com/music/ here] and [http://www.bonjovi.com/en/music here]")

Also, you wrote, "I think "shorter than 4 words" would be an ideal solution". Surely you meant "... "shorter than 4 letters" ...", right? (I disagree, by the way, as then you'd have It Came From Beneath the Sea and Interview With the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles.)

If you want, you can still correct those posts. Regards – ὁ οἶστρος (talk) 15:26, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up. You're right, I did mean 4 letters. lol. Fixed that. I've left the refs as they've been done, work just as well either way. douts (talk) 15:58, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
It's becoming confusing, with people now responding below the references list. Although I really feel uncomfortable changing other users' contributions (you can tell by me making a fuss over a seemingly minor thing), I consider a formal tweak appropriate in this special instance, since it affects the layout not only of your post but of the discussion as a whole. So I went ahead and did it. You certainly have the right to revert, but if you do, please also move the references list tags to the end of the discussion.

Feel free to do whatever is needed m8. I've lost interest in the MOS discussions etc after the havoc on the Into Darkness page. Cheers. douts (talk) 19:19, 9 February 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for all the Fish[edit]

Help - Reply[edit]

Hi there DOUBTS, AL from Portugal "here",
