Seeking your arbitration Comment[edit]

I noticed that you have had previous input on the article Mohammed Burhanuddin. Well, there is an ongoing dispute between myself and another editor regarding the inclusion/exclusion of a stampede at this mans funeral. Could you please leave your thoughts on the talk page discussion. Thanks.Fotoriety (talk) 23:30, 1 February 2014 (UTC)

Some stroopwafels for you![edit]

  • Thanks and no prob. :) FlowerpotmaN·(t) 20:45, 12 June 2014 (UTC)
Geez, that is one small signature! I recommend you increase the font; it needn't be standard size but right now I can't actually read it, and I have very good eyesight.--Launchballer 20:52, 12 June 2014 (UTC)
    • Really? I'll take a look at the formatting, but it appears only marginally smaller than the preceding text on my machine and any other machine I've used, either Windows or Linux based. It's been the much the same signature for the last 6 or 7 years and nobody has had a problem with it, but I'll have a look at the code again. FlowerpotmaN·(t) 21:00, 12 June 2014 (UTC)
When I have access to a computer I can take screendumps from - Windows Explorer does not work on my home computer and thus I have to open and close stuff using Task Manager - I will take a screendump for illustration purposes. I think it's just the font, though.--Launchballer 21:11, 12 June 2014 (UTC)
The signature should have been appearing as a small-caps variant (with a drop-shadow) of whatever your default monospace font is; I hadn't specified a named font, although I have put Courier New in as the first option now, despite my inner geek not liking to specify fonts, preferring to leave that to the user. FlowerpotmaN·(t) 21:28, 12 June 2014 (UTC)
Much better, thank you.--Launchballer 21:32, 12 June 2014 (UTC)
That sort of suggests a system or browser issue on your end, with my money on it being a browser issue. The only change I made was to add Courier New as the first font face option in the old-style HTML code in the signature; the old sig code didn't specify a font face or size, just a general family, so the signature should have used your default monospace font and the size attributes would have been inherited from the page. It was even rendering correctly on my antique Android phone. So maybe you should check what the settings for whatever monotype font the browser is defaulting to? I know I had much the same issue with Firefox dealing with default serif fonts a while back when it decided to use an unpleasant sans-serif font. I never did work out why the default font got changed, but it had. FlowerpotmaN·(t) 22:40, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

I'm deeply impressed that you were able to correctly identify a multi-year-dormant sock, now confirmed, from the flavor of their hoaxing. As a result, the CU identified at least three additional socks, and as a result, it is likely that the Wiki will have fewer hoaxes once that process completes. It couldn't have happened without you.

  • Thanks... :) Just looking at the SPI page now. Couldn't find any definites when I was sock-hunting earlier in the week, but I'll start sifting through his most recent contributions and see what pops up. FlowerpotmaN·(t) 18:44, 20 June 2014 (UTC)
