Jonathan Bonnitcha[edit]

Sorry to bother you, but I don't understand your edit. Would you mind explaining it to me? Thanks in anticipation. Pdfpdf (talk) 12:31, 16 May 2008 (UTC)

The page was referring to fr:Alexander Jonathan Bonnitcha, which doesn't exist. Therefore, the interlanguage link should not be. More information can be found here and here. Drbreznjev (talk) 17:34, 16 May 2008 (UTC)

Many thanks. Pdfpdf (talk) 06:03, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

List of Dog Breeds[edit]

Hi, I just noticed your edit to List of Dog Breeds; capitalising the first letter of the category name doesn't appear to be necessary. For example; in this version the link to Category:Dog types appears the same as in this version where you had fixed it, so the edit (and the others like it) seem rather inconsequential. ~ User:Ameliorate! (with the !) (talk) 09:55, 4 October 2008 (UTC)

It is part of the WikiProject Check Wikipedia in which such small things as categories beginning with a small letter are fixed. Giving each category a big letter is very useful for people who use the dump. Please contact Stefan Kühn for more information. Dr. Breznjev (talk) 10:03, 4 October 2008 (UTC)


Your recent edit to Ub-AMC included a link to a disambiguation page. The use of these links is discouraged on Wikipedia as they are unhelpful to readers. In the future, please check your links to make sure they point to an article. Thanks! twirligigLeave one! ⋄ Check me out! 21:14, 8 February 2009 (UTC)

Algebra over a field[edit]

You can't blindly replace <b> and friends with apostrophes as you did here. It breaks in the vicinity of other apostrophes. Compare '''x'''<b>z</b> + '''y'''<b>z</b> xz + yz to '''x''''''z''' + '''y''''''z''' x'z + y'z. — Emil J. 17:36, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

Richter tuning[edit]

Thank you for your edit to “Richter tuning”. (I don't know how I made that error. :-/ ) —SlamDiego←T 20:24, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

Bicycle Law[edit]

I left your style edits of the headings in place. However, I returned the heading "Right to the Road" back to a subdivision of the heading "History," because that is THE historical achievement of 19th century bicycle law (i.e., it is not a category separate from "history"; rather it IS the history of bicycle law). All bicycle law today flows from that historical development. And in the article, all discussion of current bicycle law (much of which is currently being written) flows from that historical development. The discussion of the development of the bicycle merely sets the context for the development of bicycle law (i.e., gaining the right to the road) in the 19th century, just as gaining the right to the road in the 19th century sets the context for bicycle law today.

50000 Quaoar[edit]

Your bot edits are breaking articles. It seems to just be in the "imagemap" code that the bot is causing trouble. -- Kheider (talk) 19:07, 16 July 2009 (UTC)

Not a problem. I just thought I would let you know since I noticed that you were editing multiple articles with the "imagemap" code. I was surprised to see it break anything. But then again autoscripts don't do visual checks. :) -- Kheider (talk) 19:19, 16 July 2009 (UTC)[edit]

We need your help. Somebody who goes by the name HK has hacked the official website, and we need to see to it that the creators and publishers of the website will punish this HK once and for all. They rearranged the website and cut off pictures, so I can't see some of them. Please help us end this foul hack once and for all and please respond when he or she is busted.

British Expeditionary Force (World War I)[edit]

Hi your recent edits to this article keep changing an &ndash into - , if you are using autoedit can you check first before changing as you will be aware we use &endash not - on wiki. Thanks --Jim Sweeney (talk) 14:01, 18 December 2009 (UTC)


Hi. I removed spaces in Coxeter-Dynkin diagrams, caused by this edit: [1] at simplex. The wiki DIFF viewer doesn't show space changes, but your automaticed operation visually affected the symbols created as chained sequences of images. Please be careful in the future! Thanks.

Battle of North Walsham[edit]

HTML ndash coding[edit]

Greetings, Dr. B.

I have noticed that you have replaced all of the HTML ndash coding in the Florida Gators football season-decade articles. My prior use of the HTML coding for ndashes in these articles' tables and text was not an accident; like most editors, my eyes cannot discern the differences between the ASCII characters for a hyphen, an endash or an mdash when editing code. It is my understanding that there is no preferred form of coding for ndashes, etc. (See WP:DASH) As a courtesy to the editor who has created virtually all of these tables and text, I would be grateful if you would revert your changes so I can continue to work on them without going blind and batty. It is my understanding that changing coding for the sake of coding, when an article already has an established uniform pattern, is frowned upon. Having reformatted the tables and raised these articles to a uniform degree of standardization in content and formatting, the next step is to expand the season summary for each of the season, and I plan to return to this project in the next few weeks after I complete a pending feature article. Thank you for your understanding. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 21:51, 25 January 2011 (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, guidelines for use at WP:MINOR). 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 all users will still be able to manually mark their edits as being minor in the usual way.

For well-established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. 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) 20:30, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for April 30[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited List of Mr. Belvedere episodes, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Dream On (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.
