Police Rank Insignia[edit]

Hi. Many thanks for your message and the kind comments. All the files should now be available on Commons (with the same file names) and available for you to use in your article. Best wishes, Timothy Titus Talk To TT 10:04, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

Hi again Howard. I've had a look for you - not very easy, because I don't speak Chinese, or understand the characters! However, I have made some alterations to the code you were using, and the images are now displaying. Perhaps you could double check, but as far as I can see (after a 5-minute "teach yourself Chinese characters" course on-line) I think I've got everything in the right place for you. All best wishes, Timothy Titus Talk To TT 13:22, 17 August 2010 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for April 4[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Roosevelt Road (Taipei), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Daan (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.

Invite to Research Survey[edit]

Hello Howard61313,

I'm part of a team that is researching ways to help Wikipedia editors find interesting content to contribute to Wikipedia. More specifically, we are investigating whether content from news sources can be used to enhance Wikipedia editing. We are creating a tool, called wikiFeed, that will help Wikipedia editors make connections between content from Twitter or RSS news feeds and Wikipedia articles. We are currently gathering data which will help us in the development process and would love to learn about how you consume news content and how it relates to your Wikipedia editing. If you would like to help, follow this link to complete a brief survey. Your feedback will help us create a better tool.

For more information about wikiFeed, visit our project page. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask via my talk page, or by email at wikifeedcc@gmail.com. Thanks for your time! Jeremey Bentham (talk) 16:19, 25 July 2012 (UTC)

January 2013[edit]

Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you recently tried to give a page a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into another page with a different name. This is known as a "cut and paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is legally required for attribution. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.

In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page. This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other pages that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Cut and paste move repair holding pen. Thank you. - Happysailor (Talk) 17:10, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

Removing Speedy at Shanzaihou Military Housing Complex[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia and thank you for taking the time to create a page here. It might not have been your intention, but you recently removed a speedy deletion tag from a page you created yourself. Because Wikipedia policy does not allow the creator of the page to remove deletion tags, an automated program has replaced the deletion tag you removed from Shanzaihou Military Housing Complex. Please do not continue to remove the deletion tag, instead, if you disagree with the deletion, you can follow these steps:

  1. Go to the page by clicking this link. Once there, select the button that says Click here to contest this speedy deletion.
  2. This will take you to the talk page, where you can make your case by explaining why the page does not meet Wikipedia's criteria for speedy deletion.

Administrators will look at your reasoning before deciding what to do. For further help about the deletion, you could contact the user who first placed the tag or a highly active user who is willing to help with deletion. This message was left by a bot, so please do not contact the bot about the deletion. Thank you, - SDPatrolBot (talk) 17:13, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

Please do not remove content or templates from pages on Wikipedia, as you did to Yangmingshan American Military Housing with this edit, without giving a valid reason for the removal in the edit summary. Your content removal does not appear constructive, and has been reverted. Please make use of the sandbox if you'd like to experiment with test edits. Thank you. - Happysailor (Talk) 17:18, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

Removing Speedy at Shanzaihou Military Housing Complex[edit]

Please do not remove speedy deletion notices from pages you have created yourself, as you did with Shanzaihou Military Housing Complex. If you believe the page should not be deleted, you may contest the deletion by clicking on the button that says: Click here to contest this speedy deletion, which appears inside the speedy deletion notice. This will allow you to make your case on the article's talk page. Administrators will consider your reasoning before deciding what to do with the article. Thank you. - SDPatrolBot (talk) 17:23, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

Chinese characters in Vietnam-related topics[edit]

Please note that Vietnamese no longer uses Chinese characters since the beginning of the 20th century, so adding Chinese characters to articles about things that were created since the beginning of the 20th century is anachronistic and misleading. DHN (talk) 08:54, 28 May 2013 (UTC)

July 2013[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "()"s and 1 "{}"s likely mistaking one for another. If you have, don't worry, just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:
  • |{{lang|ko|경사(警查}}}
  • |}
