Hanna Stjärne[edit]

Please take a look at the article Hanna Stjärne. I have a DYK nom for this article at the moment. And a reviewer requested that the article needed a copyedit and a check-through for english grammar. Thanks.--BabbaQ (talk) 00:25, 5 November 2014 (UTC)

@BabbaQ: Yes check.svg Done - You might want to add links from other Wikipedia articles to Hanna Stjärne. Good luck with the DYK! GoingBatty (talk) 02:54, 5 November 2014 (UTC)
Yes, I did that just now. Thank you for your assistance. If you feel like it,please take a look at my other articles Von Sydow murders and Långholmens spinnhus They are both for DYK. Thanks.--BabbaQ (talk) 15:00, 5 November 2014 (UTC)
@BabbaQ: Yes check.svg Done for both. Note that I've left some maintenance templates on each article to highlight where I had concerns. GoingBatty (talk) 18:26, 5 November 2014 (UTC)
Just changed some categories you added from "Swiss ..." to "Swedish ..." – not the same country. ;-) HandsomeFella (talk) 10:22, 11 November 2014 (UTC)
@HandsomeFella: Handsome and detail oriented - nice combination!  :-) Thanks for fixing my silly mistake and for letting me know. I used the Edit summary search tool to look for other articles where I added Swiss categories, and didn't see any other mistakes. Thanks! GoingBatty (talk) 14:31, 11 November 2014 (UTC)

BattyBot problems[edit]

In this edit, the bot changes "date=undated" to "date=n.d.". The latter is clearly contrary to the guidelines, but the former isn't helpful. Any idea as to what is happening? — Arthur Rubin (talk) 10:52, 17 November 2014 (UTC)

Can you explain what what you mean by contrary to the guidelines? Which guidelines? Where? At {{cite web}} is this (at §Date):
For approximate year, precede with "c. ", like this: |date=c. 1900; for no date, add as |date=n.d.

@Arthur Rubin: Also, reverting the bot's edit also readded the automatic Check date values in: |date= errors in the reference section. GoingBatty (talk) 19:08, 17 November 2014 (UTC)
@Arthur Rubin: As an aside, you may want to clean up the article so that all the dates are in the same format per MOS:DATEUNIFY. Thanks! GoingBatty (talk) 19:11, 17 November 2014 (UTC)


Please take a look at Pettakere cave. The article could need some copyediting. Thanks.--BabbaQ (talk) 11:44, 22 November 2014 (UTC)

@BabbaQ: Yes check.svg Done GoingBatty (talk) 14:07, 22 November 2014 (UTC)

New article creation HELP[edit]

Batty,This is a sandbox article I just created .Can you help me review it to see if it qualifies to be an article,and also request to help with the edit.Thanks (Suntug11 (talk) 14:33, 25 November 2014 (UTC)).

@Suntug11: I did a lot of copyediting on your sandbox article for you. I suggest you read Wikipedia:Notability (people) and add more independent reliable sources that discuss Balachandran, especially in those sections of your sandbox article that are unreferenced. Good luck! GoingBatty (talk) 15:43, 25 November 2014 (UTC)

Will work on it.A Million Thanks (Suntug11 (talk) 15:50, 25 November 2014 (UTC))


Sorry, but I was being BOLD at the List of violent incidents in the Israeli–Palestinian conflict, 2014 and trying to reformat something and I ended up having to revert to the last stable edit which meant undoing your edit (see [1]). Yours, Quis separabit? 03:39, 26 November 2014 (UTC) No worries - let me know when you're done and I'll redo my edits. GoingBatty (talk) 03:40, 26 November 2014 (UTC)
Done. Thanks. Quis separabit? 03:41, 26 November 2014 (UTC) Yes check.svg Done - Happy editing! GoingBatty (talk) 03:45, 26 November 2014 (UTC)
