Thom S. Rainer[edit]

Thanks for editing the Thom S. Rainer entry in December. Sorry it took me so long to check it out. I noticed the banner that warns the entry reads too much like a resume. I edited this on March 18, shortening it and trying to make it read more encyclopedic. Please let me know if I need to do any further work. I noticed today the "resume" banner is still up. Assuming the article had been fixed, can you tell me how to get the banner to come down? Thanks for your help.

Robphillips7 (talk) 14:52, 19 March 2008 (UTC)

There is nothing special about the person that removes that banner, you could do so if you feel the problem has been 'fixed'. I mearly put it there to draw attention to the problem that I felt existed at the time. By turning 'points' into 'prose' that problem has seemingly been corrected. From the sound of it, I guese you might be new(ish) to Wikipedia? You will find that (generally) we are a rather informal bunch, I myself would leave the book listing as a seperate section with the ISBN numbers, but thats just me. I would also suggest putting in some sort of inline citations to back up what the Article is saying about Thom. If you wish to use a helpful cheat tool to make the 'code', one is located here. Feel free to ask should you have any other questions. Exit2DOS2000TC 03:12, 20 March 2008 (UTC)

Ealing Broadway[edit]

I think you've missed something over at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Ealing Broadway Platform 9 - nobody is saying that the railway station isn't notable, it is. It has an article at Ealing Broadway station. The article at AFD (Ealing Broadway Platform 9) is purely for a single platform (out of the nine at the station). Thanks/wangi (talk) 21:48, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

I understand, but the arguments being used as reasons to !Vote delete, are faulty. IF a geographic location has can satisfy WP:V, why must it go? Exit2DOS2000TC 21:53, 2 April 2008 (UTC)
I guess I was confused - the examples you gave were train stations, I guess they might have just had 1 or 2 platforms, but it was a discrete station never the less. In this case the individual platform isn't notable itself, there is perhaps a single sentence that can be said about it (re old style signs) but this is covered in the article about the station. Everything else comes under the spirit of WP:NOT along with many other policy and guidelines - this isn't a timetable, this isn't a reference for train buffs -- it's an encyclopaedia. What can be said about platform 9 at Ealing Broadway that cannot be covered at Ealing Broadway station? You can verify an amazing number of things - doesn't mean they are encyclopaedic. (seeing as this has expanded, I'll move the discussion back to the AFD - please reply there) Thanks/wangi (talk) 22:14, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

Just Responding[edit]

Hey, this is Amanda from the article Forensic Entomology: Stages of Decomposition. I was just wondering if you had any suggestions for where we should place our article, other than merging into the general decomposition page. We see this page moving in a direction that is more forensically geared, using decomposition factors as evidence in cases. Do you think purposing a merge into Forensic Entomology with our own section on Entomological evidence would be wise? Or, there is a page called Entomological Evidence Collecting. Another idea from someone else was to rename the page Forensic Entomological Decomposition. But, I can't see this title being that big of an improvement. Please let me know what you think. I do value your opinion. --Amandamartinez06 (talk) 09:23, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

Ealing Broadway[edit]

I quoted from your remark on the AfD - "Well your wrong about "Individual railway platforms are never notable..., see Howard (CTA) and if that isnt small enough, how about Loyola (CTA)". The two you mention are actual stations. Even if this isn't what you meant, the fact that something is verifiable is not enough to Keep if notability is not proven. Black Kite 06:11, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

2 points in that reguard counter you thoughts. All the Hungarian towns I spoke about, none has any notion of WP:N .. and ... whats the difference between the notability-ness of "a 1 platform station" and "1 platform in a station" ... none. Your obviously misguided close shows you are not open to a change in consensus. Exit2DOS2000TC 04:29, 8 April 2008 (UTC)

General list of Masonic Lodges AFD[edit]

Just wanted to point out that although you say the article tries to keep out clandestine lodges, the article in fact says in the opener, "This is a general list of masonic Grand Lodges across the World, descending from the United Grand Lodge of England or not, "regular" or not." (my emphasis). So you might want to reconsider your vote if that is your basis for voting as such.

I also get the impression you think there is a standard list that all Lodges use, and this is not the case. For example, all fifty states in the US each have their own books, and they are not all the same - for a jurisdiction "A", it will recognize another jurisdiction "B". However, "B" may also recognize "C", "D" and "E" which A does not, and it's precisely that sort of reference usage I want to avoid. So sourcing has nothing to do with solving the problem of this particular list. Did you actually happen to scroll through the French article and see how big it is? It has 50 subsections (one of which is the US, so there's 50 entries in that one section) entries and isn't anywhere close to complete. MSJapan (talk) 14:51, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

Frenchtown Square Mall[edit]

Yes, a lawsuit was filed against the mall, and yes that does carry some weight, but it was just a blip in the mall's 20 year history.

Emergency service[edit]

Hi there, I was just wondering what it was in the emergency service article that you thought wasn't international? I am also a little confused as you added the tag, along with SJA, which is an organisation with a very limited geographical range! I agree that a little more could be added, but a lot of it is covered by disaster relief etc. Thanks, OwainDavies (about)(talk) edited at 05:26, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

Without references, it seems to be very American insofar as what falls into what group. In some countries, what is listed in the Civil emergency services section, would be a Core emergency services. Exit2DOS2000TC 10:07, 16 July 2008 (UTC)
Could you give examples? I grouped it, and i'm British! I can't see anything in civil which would class as a core emergency service. Certainly in the UK the government defines them in to 'Category 1' responders downwards, and whilst a couple of the 'secondary emergency services' (but none of the 'civil') are UK category 1 responders (Coastguard, notably), that doesn't hold true in other countries. I believe that only Police, Fire and Ambulance fall in to the true definition of core between different countries, which is why the other groups are there.

Actually, -isation is the standard British usage, -ization is really quite rare and would be thought of as American.

Go for it. I realize the "Dot or Not" wording was going to be played with, I don't mind at all. The S/Z thing I did more to have the Article become uniform, rather than use 2 different spellings several times each. It looked messy. Exit2DOS2000TC 02:15, 26 July 2008 (UTC)

Excellent idea. My thoughts were that a Disambig page would allow for easily directing readers to there local law, rather than wading through all the sections in a single Article to find their local law.

Local clause for WP:N[edit]

Re this AfD, WP:ORG says: "The source's audience must also be considered; evidence of attention by international or national, or at least regional, media is a strong indication of notability, whereas attention solely by local media is not an indication of notability." Yours, Huon (talk) 13:58, 7 October 2008 (UTC)

  • And the rest of that quote follows by saying.. "however, smaller organizations can be notable, just as individuals can be notable, and arbitrary standards should not be used to create a bias favoring larger organizations." Exit2DOS2000TC 23:24, 7 October 2008 (UTC)
I was aware of that part of WP:ORG, but I don't see its relevance here. Do you say that considering the audience is an arbitrary standard? Huon (talk) 00:09, 8 October 2008 (UTC)
  • Excluding any news source simply based upon its location is an arbitrary standard. Shall we exclude all newspapers sources about a country if they are located within that country, no. The same reasoning applies.
Do you argue that The Fayetteville Observer is more than "local media" (possibly regional in scope), or do you argue that the quote I gave is contradicted by other parts of WP:ORG and should be ignored altogether? I'm not happy with the latter idea. Huon (talk) 01:02, 8 October 2008 (UTC)
  • Take it as the latter. A RS is a RS, no matter where it is physically located.

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/After Happy Ever (Radio Show)[edit]

Can I remind you of no personal attacks, please? Not a polite comment in the slightest. There was a pattern and other shows have been deleted for exactly that. You don't need to look up every ounce of information about a show. Because you don't agree, and haven't wirh me since the first article I nominated for deletion is not a reason to be rude. TravellingCari 02:17, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

You were nominated to be an admin because you showed you took due diligence in your tasks. In this case, you plainly stated that you did not. I am sorry of I pointed out the obvious. It was not ment personnaly, simply as I said, If Admins dont bother, why should anyone else. Exit2DOS2000TC 02:58, 14 October 2008 (UTC)
It's impossible to prove non-notability. It's perfectly acceptable when you realize articles fit a pattern of non-notability (which I still believe they do as the deletion of more than half of the creator's articles seem to indicate) as well as no evidence of reliable sourcing to bulk nominate. Would you suggest that every nom personally comb every paper to prove there's no evidence. Nowhere in that AfD did anyone find any notability because there isn't any. One tat was notable (and wasn't included because it wasn't in question) doesn't prove these all are notable. I'm more inclusive as an admin, but there are sentences (those aren't articles) that have no place here because they aren't notable. I take you at your word that it wasn't personal but it sure seemed it. TravellingCari 03:18, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

AfD for Jax Desmond Worldwide[edit]

In WP:Articles for deletion/Jax Desmond Worldwide you wrote, "having not read any of the afore mentioned, does not make a persons opinion less valid." But actually, it does make the opinion less valid. Common sense dictates that deletion discussions that reference the policies that determine inclusion should be informed by such policies. Moreover, WP:Deletion policy#Deletion discussion points out that "participants are encouraged to explain their opinion and refer to policy". You may think that the comment was "biting" but after the given lengthy explanations of why the article was nominated (with reasonably detailed references to the article and to policy), I don't think it's out of line to suggest that a commentator who has made numerous uninformed comments apprise him or herself of the policies. Bongomatic 04:26, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

There's no cabal.png

So then do you believe that Wiki should have a cabal of editors and not respect the opinions of newbies? I dont feel that way, and I stated so. To me it does not matter how many words you may plonk into and AfD, Common sense is superior to any Guideline. I feel it is actually better to guide new people too the reading material rather than complain in AfD's about them not having read it, and stating that their opinion is useless because they havent read it. Exit2DOS2000TC 04:43, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

On the contrary, I think newbies are entitled to their opinions, both on the merits of an article and on the wisdom and utilitiy of Wikipedia policies. However, I don't see anything controversial with the proposition that comments in AfD discussions are only validated (regardless of who offers them) by reference to the criteria used in closing deletion discussions. The comments don't lack validity because the the writer hasn't read the policies--they lack validity because the comments aren't consistent with the policies. Moreover, I strongly disagree with the imbedded assumption in your comment, namely that newbies, even if shown where to look (in the case of this AfD, both in the nomination and in several follow-up comments) are incapable of reading the policies or following wikilinks.

Centro Brandon Park[edit]

Firstly, please be civil in edit summaries. I've been here for three years, I've been an admin for two, and I don't appreciate my edits which bring Wikipedia into line with its core policies as being described as "hack and slash" and reverted without even consulting me.

Had you asked, I would have told you that the edits I made left behind the only parts which could be validated as in any way likely, let alone true. A list of shopping centres of the same brand name in a different country is not a useful "See also" link, the history was not only pure cruft but had been taken from another article and hence was not the history for *this* centre, and sadly, Centro don't put up sufficient information on their website that one can look this stuff up to repair it. Finally, the category you restored didn't even make sense - a shopping mall cannot be a listed company on a stock exchange - its owner might, but the article isn't about its owner. Whenever users intentionally or unintentionally damage wide swathes of the site (especially low-visibility areas that are on few people's watchlists) with inappropriate editing, it's generally expected that it be fixed and not be left to rot, in order that Wikipedia's reputation not be brought into disrepute. If you can find a valid source of information about the centre and write a history section, however, feel free. Orderinchaos 20:50, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

  • What you did was purely hack and slash. If you had doubt about its validity then use the {{fact}} template, or even the Talk page. But you did neither. You took it upon yourself to remove more than half the Article without asking, or requesting, any input from others. And I dont care if you are an Admin, or even how long you have been an Admin, Admins can be in the wrong too. Stating a Title as validation for doing such actions is even worse. Exit2DOS2000TC 03:34, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
Firstly I did not state a title as validation. It was a statement of "I have been here for a while, I'm not a newbie who may be acting in bad faith." This was because you were treating me in bad faith, not for any other reason.
Secondly, as I said, I didn't "have doubt about its validity", I *knew* it to be incorrect, and I had no means by which to get correct information. I need quote no other authority than Jimmy Wales, as quoted in WP:V: "There seems to be a terrible bias among some editors that some sort of random speculative 'I heard it somewhere' pseudo information is to be tagged with a 'needs a cite' tag. Wrong. It should be removed, aggressively, unless it can be sourced." I am of the view that Wikipedia's credibility can be improved by removing false information.
Thirdly, it's a low visibility article, I'd pretty much guarantee that noone would read the talk page, so it would end up like the thousands of other articles I end up fixing with eight-month-old talk page requests and twelve-month-old tags. I asked two other people what they thought and they thought the entire article should be deleted on the grounds of notability. One was an admin who lived in the city concerned and the other was basically the Australian project's shopping centre expert who has written many quality articles on the subject and used to operate a "rescue squad" for failing articles in that area. As it was 20000m²+ and *may* have encyclopaedic value as a result, I left it be but removed contentious sections. If it becomes clear others agree with the opinions I received, I'll AfD it.
Now, per WP:V, if you wish to restore again, please show some responsibility for content you add to the encyclopaedia, seeing as that policy specifically states, "The burden of evidence lies with the editor who adds or restores material." If you restore again, I will report you unless you have a source with information contained. I'll give you a lead-up - it's not on Brandon Park's own website, I looked. Deliberately adding false information to articles is considered disruptive editing. Orderinchaos 08:32, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
  • "I did not state a title as validation" well that is what it comes across as when you make sure to state this before any thing else.
  • If you *know* it to be wrong, please say how you *know* this, as both Articles are uncited in this reguard. It would seem a proper Edit would be to mark both articles with {{fact}}, then to ask for clarification if some other editore can clear it up.
  • you did not even tye the talk page, so you would not know.
  • quote all the Policies you wish to me, you have broken the same number. Exit2DOS2000TC 09:52, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

Maal[edit]

According to the date of 8th December 2008 as cited on the history of the article "Maal", you believed this was a translation error. I was the author of the article maal.

Maal is a Sylheti mythical creature that originates from rural areas of Bangladesh. Mal means property and weight in Bengali too but it doesn't deny the fact that there are alternative definitions for word maal. No sources are online because it's a childhood oral tradition, many rural Sylhetis will understand.

I suggest that this should be put back up:

The `Maal` are believed to be legendary malevolent water spirits that reside in the deep, murky waters of Bangladesh, such as ponds, lakes, rivers and dams. According to village stories and folklore, the `maal` are considered to be spirit like mermaids that drag people into the water and instantly drowning them. —Preceding unsigned comment added by NarlySai (talkcontribs) 19:30, 22 March 2009 (UTC)

Perhaps you might do better to first create a overview Article like Sylheti mythology prior to creating Articles on individual creatures like Maal. An Oral tradition is much more WP:Noatable and easier to defend at a AfD. Exit2DOS2000TC 02:23, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

Path forward for Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Phillips explosion of 1999[edit]

Of all the proposals at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Phillips explosion of 1999, yours to merge all three articles into one makes the most sense, and it's the only one that I would be willing to help implement. However, the banner at Phillips explosion of 1999 says the consensus was to merge that one article into Phillips Petroleum Company, which I don't support and couldn't be bothered with helping to implement.

I'm not a newbie to Wikipedia article creation and editing, but I am a newbie to article destruction.

Sure, It was copied, word for word, from the site that I stated in the "Edit Summery". That is considered a Copyright Violation (CopyVio for short). If you wish it to remain in the Article, put it into your own words, your own work would not be a Copyright Violation. Using someone elses words or work, without their express written permission, is not allowed on Wikipedia. Exit2DOS2000TC 17:14, 14 June 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the clarification. Hence I would do the needful. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Nefirious (talkcontribs) 04:24, 17 June 2009 (UTC)

License Tag[edit]

I have sorted out the licensing issue of the scanned copy. Please have a look at the scanned image. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Nefirious (talkcontribs) 04:22, 17 June 2009 (UTC)

  • I am sorry, but I still do not believe that the license you have changed it to, allows its use. The license template specifically says "Note: If the image depicts a person or persons on the cover, it is not acceptable to use the image in the article of the person or persons depicted on the cover, unless used to directly illustrate a point about the publication of the image. Use of the image merely to depict a person or persons in the image will be removed." And also, you have to admit, a 2,048 × 1,536 pixel image is hardly low resolution. You can plainly read every word on the paper. Exit2DOS2000TC 19:23, 17 June 2009 (UTC)

I deleted it myself. The scanned copy was merely to enhance the layout of the article and add authenticity to it. But let me get well versed with all the licensing stuff then I would do what is needed. Since you've already said that the scanned copy of the article can be used to highlight a point, i'll go through the article and expand the article. Anyway, thanks for thr above explanation. I really appreciate it the way you put up things Nefirious (talk)

Tagging[edit]

The editors here are making concerted efforts to improve the articles and I am doing just so. Editing or tagging your articles wasn't done with a purpose to discourage you or your creations, but an attempt to improve them. I will tell you bit by bit why I felt it was necessary to tag your articles since I came across your user page I had a look at the articles you created and as a responsible editor it was my duty to put those tags in place. I will have a look once again at your articles and will place the tags after discussion with the editors, so don't get disheartened if you see the tags and you can remove them only after you take appropriate steps to improve them. Please don't take it personally. Nefirious (talk) 09:11, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

You cannot delete a picture prior to any discussion. I have posted the sources and it seems to me you have a personal grudge against me and my articles. I had added some relevant tags to your articles and this seems nothing but an obvious attempt to disqualify the images I add as an act of revenge. I've been doing my bit to bring more authenticity to wikipedia articles and some careless editors like you remove the pictures without arbitration. The administrator who removed the picture admitted that it was a mistake. You do not have the authority to do so. I will post the picture again with relevant license. I am also making a point to keep a track on your articles. Make sure all the sources are quoted. Cheers... Nefirious (talk) 06:42, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

The discussion took place. Please do not re-upload the same picture again, as I will only have to nominate it, again, for violating the same rules of Citation that the original did. I had a link to the original FFD discussion in the Article. I also seem to recall notifying you on your Talk page about it. THAT is when you started placing templates on several Articles that I have worked on in the past. Looking at our edit histories will easily sort that out. At this point, I would ask that you stop WP:WIKIHOUNDING and move on. If you believe that this type of ongoing behavior is acceptable in a Administrator (or prospective), by all means please continue, it does not bother me. Exit2DOS CtrlAltDel 00:23, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
PS ... Where did Drilnoth state that? And if he had done so, why did he not simply undelete it? It seems as though he was also the Admin to Speedy the re-uploaded file that still provided no Citation as to where it came from. Exit2DOS CtrlAltDel 00:46, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
Just on a side note (I have not looked into the image issue here). I wold recommend that next time, instead of using rollback for an edit like this you use the undo button and make sure to provide an edit summary. Rollback should only be used for clear cases of vandalism. Cheers, Tiptoety talk 16:35, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

If you like I can make it so that only users who have been registered for a few weeks can post on this page. This would make it so that IPs and new users can not harass you.

Let me know on my talk page if you want it later then as I am not likely to notice if it continues or not. In my experience Wikiquette alerts is really only useful when all parties involved are acting in good faith, that page is not about enforcement and the advice given in response to real problems is often less than helpful. If you have issues with users acting abusively feel free to skip the bureaucracy of noticeboards and such and simply post on my talk page. Chillum 00:00, 24 October 2009 (UTC)

SEIU Local 1 Canada [edit]

You recently suggested a merger of this article with the main SEIU article. I wanted to ask you, before I withdraw as a "Withdrawn as Keep and Improve/add tags/whathaveyou," if you would have any problems with that? I personally think that the dedicated article merits it's own page, considering the size and scope of this particular amalgamated local? However if you fel that the main article (which deals with the SEIU as an international) there might be room for some addition of material there, that links to the "Local 1" article. Just wondering. Thanks in advance, for your consideration in this. Regards, Hamster Sandwich (talk) 00:59, 29 November 2009 (UTC)

I feel there is a lot of 'junk' information there. After removing trivial info, attacks and the un-encyclopedic ... how much is really left.

Notice this first successful AfD on an amateur radio society, it passed under the radar.[edit]

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Lietuvos Radijo Mėgėjų Draugija

Before filing a DRV on this, I'd talk to Cirt, see if he will re-open it. I expect I can do that tonight. We should facilitate the formation of an overall consensus on how to handle these stubs, and, in reflecting on it over the last few days, it is obvious to me what is best for the project. AfD is not the place for this to be discussed and debated, it is rather a question of how the encyclopedia is to be organized so as to grow evenly and efficiently.

I have also asked the nominator to stop filing these AfDs pending an opportunity to make some overall decision. Hopefully, he will be responsive, or I'll need to escalate. We should not have to make the exact same argument over and over in a hundred AfDs, particularly if it is all moot. --Abd (talk) 14:23, 21 February 2010 (UTC)

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Redaktor Wikipedia 600px.png

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, will be commencing a a two-month trial at approximately 23:00, 2010 June 15 (UTC).

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under flagged protection. Flagged protection is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 17:21, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

Fact tags[edit]

I'm not going to revert you, but you should be aware that information in a Wikipedia article is absolutely not appropriate as a source for an article, even if it is a list. All facts, figures and information need independent, third-party, reliable sources. I already started referencing the article (even though I don't think it's appropriate for Wikipedia). I think those who vote so passionately to keep articles should at least help to improve them to a decent state if the AFD is kept, otherwise they just end up languishing even further. Aiken 22:34, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

"All facts, figures and information need independent, third-party, reliable sources".... yep and they are provided in the streets Article (that it is linked too). There is no deadline Exit2DOS CtrlAltDel 23:02, 16 August 2010 (UTC)
Sorry, that's not good enough, and in some cases they aren't cited in the article. They have to be cited on the list itself. Meanwhile an essay does not trump a policy. Aiken 18:35, 17 August 2010 (UTC)
The Article about the landmark, that is where they should (rightly) be cited and you know it. Now stop wp:gaming the system and leave me alone. Exit2DOS CtrlAltDel 21:21, 17 August 2010 (UTC)

List of streets in Manchester[edit]

Hi I'm playing catch up with this article. Could you point me to the bit of the AfD where the appropriateness of including a square in a list of streets is discussed? Thanks, Nev1 (talk) 21:57, 17 August 2010 (UTC)

[2] this should show you the edit diff. Exit2DOS CtrlAltDel 22:08, 17 August 2010 (UTC)
Is see, but that's comparing List of streets in Manchester to an article about streets and squares. The Manchester list is currently titled to include just streets. Either it needs to be moved to a more accurate title, or squares need to be excluded. Nev1 (talk) 22:49, 17 August 2010 (UTC)
It is a non-issue, a red herring argument. Don't be sucked in by it. See List of streets and roads in Hong Kong. The is consensus to allow squares in a list of roads without a problem. Should that be renamed List of streets and roads and squares and tunnels and bridges in Hong Kong ? (rhetorical question;) Exit2DOS CtrlAltDel 22:56, 17 August 2010 (UTC)
You may consider it rhetorical, but it's actually quite a legitimate question. On what grounds is a bazaar considered a street or a road for example? The title is misleading. Unfortunately that's not a high quality list either, there doesn't appear to be a single reference. Nev1 (talk) 23:03, 17 August 2010 (UTC)
It is not a legitimate question. Guidelines have been made for that case. It is a case of Over-categorization. Wikipedia:Overcategorization + Wikipedia:Article titles = KISS ... Keep it simple, silly :) Exit2DOS CtrlAltDel 23:07, 17 August 2010 (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) 18:12, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

lists[edit]

Sorry I remembered the chronology wrong in talk:Bibliography of biology. It wasn't meant to be an accusation - I was truly puzzled. Up to your last few comments on the talk pages, I had no idea whether there was any formula that you found acceptable for lists of publications (aside from the possibly unattainable opera example). I'm glad to hear that you think WikiProject Bibliographies is a good idea. RockMagnetist (talk) 06:31, 11 November 2011 (UTC)

NP  ;) no hurt feeling on this side. I dont believe its unattainable, difficult yeah, but I feel that is the right direction to move in, if they remain as "Lists". For the Long term viability of the project, it would be better for each of the "Lists" to become bibliographies though. Currently I feel there is to much room for abuse by random IP Editors once the "Mainstay Editors of each List" move on/stray away/or wikibreak. You should watchlist Chin (combat sports)...THATS what I fear happening to these lists eventually. Exit2DOS CtrlAltDel 06:52, 11 November 2011 (UTC)
