Thank you for the welcome[edit]

Thank you for welcoming me. I have already contested the deletion of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anna_maree_manciet and was wondering how long it would take to receive a response for it. I created the page with the permission of the person herself and it was requested of her by her employer Dell Inc. It was not complete and I only saved the page and published it so that she could see the progress and allow her to edit and complete the article with the information that she knows best.

Icepheonix5 (talk) 08:50, 24 May 2014 (UTC)

I'm afraid I don't know if she is notable, ie. she has received enough external coverage to merit an article on Wikipedia. I'll post a message to Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Video games, and you should get a better answer there from somebody who knows what the are talking about. Best regards, Jamesx12345 08:54, 24 May 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for the quick reply, I added her website on your post. She is actually currently streaming as well haha.

Miley[edit]

Hi, I reverted your change to my edit on Miley Cyrus. It was certainly constructive so I changed it back, albeit with references in order to prevent the illusion of a negative connotation. Instead, I intended a positive one. — Preceding unsigned comment added by ScriaBen (talkcontribs) 20:05, 24 May 2014 (UTC)

Miley Cyrus is the 264th most popular article on Wikipedia, and calling her a "sex symbol" in the first sentence is unlikely to go down well. If you're feeling especially dogged, by all means take it to the talk page to have other people disagree with you there, but the article has quite recently been promoted to GA status quite recently and everything there is there for a reason. Thanks, Jamesx12345 20:12, 24 May 2014 (UTC)

WTF[edit]

Why this revert? --NE2 23:28, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

I honestly have no idea about that. I'd like to say it's a Huggle bug, but the problem is most likely with me. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. Jamesx12345 15:36, 29 May 2014 (UTC)

Election drafts[edit]

Hello, thank you for your help earlier. I did a few more election drafts - here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here and here. --86.45.164.21 (talk) 00:41, 29 May 2014 (UTC)

Thank you. --86.45.164.21 (talk) 16:11, 29 May 2014 (UTC)
No problem. Jamesx12345 16:22, 29 May 2014 (UTC)
Thank you again. Some more are here, here, here and here.
I've also created Template:Irish local elections, 2009 and Template:Irish local elections, 2004 with the 2014 template by changing the years. There are probably some errors, but this is noted and the templates are only used a very few times at present. Jamesx12345 18:03, 30 May 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for June 2[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Inchgarvie, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Caisson (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.

Talk:Kevin Warwick[edit]

Just letting you know you forgot to add an archive box to link to your archive of K.Warwick. No real problem.. Cheers Clovis Sangrail (talk) 00:12, 11 June 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for fixing that. Jamesx12345 12:23, 11 June 2014 (UTC)

Klein model history[edit]

I've shrunk the table down to appear better on smaller monitors. I'll apply a new color scheme very soon. I see you've already reviewed the page, which I appreciate, so you know where to check it out at. MjolnirPants Tell me all about it. 15:04, 18 June 2014 (UTC)

I just did a search for Klein Bikes to get an idea of what color scheme to use. All of the logos seem to be monochrome, but I did find this. If you have any additional input on colors, it would be of some aid. If not, I think I'm going to go with WP's color scheme of greys and blues. MjolnirPants Tell me all about it. 15:25, 18 June 2014 (UTC)
Check it out now. Here's a link for convenience User:MjolnirPants/sandbox 2. MjolnirPants Tell me all about it. 17:04, 18 June 2014 (UTC)
That's vastly better than before - it looked strange at first without the colour, but is clearer and less glaring. I've forked it to User:Jamesx12345/kmh to avoid an edit conflict with the years larger, and a correction to a mistake that went from 1989 to 1991. Jamesx12345 17:16, 18 June 2014 (UTC)
This has the text size increased, but the years compressed to two digits. Jamesx12345 17:26, 18 June 2014 (UTC)
That one looks good. One thing though, the years being truncated looks a little strange without the preceding apostrophe. What do you think of this? MjolnirPants Tell me all about it. 17:34, 18 June 2014 (UTC)
Looks more familiar with apostrophes. Jamesx12345 17:41, 18 June 2014 (UTC)
Is that it then? If you're happy, I'll replace the existing template. MjolnirPants Tell me all about it. 18:31, 18 June 2014 (UTC)
Looks great now - something I hadn't noticed about the old one is that its height means it doesn't fit on one screen. The colour scheme also looks a bit like one of these. Jamesx12345 19:10, 18 June 2014 (UTC)
Augh! My eyes!
I've updated the template. Now, we just wait for someone who hates it to start the obligatory edit war over it. MjolnirPants Tell me all about it. 19:15, 18 June 2014 (UTC)
Thanks a huge amount for the advice and technical help. It looks a lot "classier" now, as well as being more readable. Jamesx12345 19:32, 18 June 2014 (UTC)
My pleasure! MjolnirPants Tell me all about it. 19:44, 18 June 2014 (UTC)

US Army Central[edit]

Hi there, Thanks for your note. I'm sitting in the HQ now. It is not US Army Central Command. The unit is called US Army Central. Feel free to back to me if you find some differing evidence. 155.213.224.59 (talk) 16:43, 20 June 2014 (UTC)

VisualEditor global newsletter—June 2014[edit]

VisualEditor-logo.svg
The character formatting menu

Did you know?

The character formatting menu, or "Style text" menu lets you set bold, italic, and other text styles. "Clear formatting" removes all text styles and removes links to other pages.

Do you think that clear formatting should remove links? Are there changes you would like to see for this menu? Share your opinion at MediaWiki.org.

The user guide has information about how to use VisualEditor.

The VisualEditor team is mostly working to fix bugs, improve performance, reduce technical debt, and other infrastructure needs. You can find on Mediawiki.org weekly updates detailing recent work.

  • They have moved the "Keyboard shortcuts" link out of the "Page options" menu, into the "Help" menu. Within dialog boxes, buttons are now more accessible (via the Tab key) from the keyboard.
  • You can now see the target of the link when you click on it, without having to open the inspector.
  • The team also expanded TemplateData: You can now add a parameter type  "date" for dates and times in the ISO 8601 format, and  "boolean" for values which are true or false. Also, templates that redirect to other templates (like {{citeweb}}{{cite web}}) now get the TemplateData of their target (bug 50964). You can test TemplateData by editing mw:Template:Sandbox/doc.
  • Category: and File: pages now display their contents correctly after saving an edit (bug 65349, bug 64239)
  • They have also improved reference editing: You should no longer be able to add empty citations with VisualEditor (bug 64715), as with references. When you edit a reference, you can now empty it and click the "use an existing reference" button to replace it with another reference instead. 
  • It is now possible to edit inline images with VisualEditor. Remember that inline images cannot display captions, so existing captions get removed. Many other bugs related to images were also fixed.
  • You can now add and edit {{DISPLAYTITLE}} and __DISAMBIG__ in the "Page options" menu, rounding out the full set of page options currently planned.
  • The tool to insert special characters is now wider and simpler.

Looking ahead[edit]

The VisualEditor team has posted a draft of their goals for the next fiscal year. You can read them and suggest changes on MediaWiki.org.

The team posts details about planned work on VisualEditor's roadmap. You will soon be able to drag-and-drop text as well as images. If you drag an image to a new place, it won't let you place it in the middle of a paragraph. All dialog boxes and windows will be simplified based on user testing and feedback. The VisualEditor team plans to add autofill features for citations. Your ideas about making referencing quick and easy are still wanted. Support for upright image sizes is being developed. The designers are also working on support for viewing and editing hidden HTML comments and adding rows and columns to tables.

Supporting your wiki[edit]

Please read VisualEditor/Citation tool for information on configuring the new citation template menu, labeled "Cite". This menu will not appear unless it has been configured on your wiki.

If you speak a language other than English, we need your help with translating the user guide. The guide is out of date or incomplete for many languages, and what's on your wiki may not be the most recent translation. Please contact me if you need help getting started with translation work on MediaWiki.org.

VisualEditor can be made available to most non-Wikipedia projects. If your community would like to test VisualEditor, please contact product manager James Forrester or file an enhancement request in Bugzilla.

Please share your questions, suggestions, or problems by posting a note at mw:VisualEditor/Feedback or by joining the office hours on Saturday, 19 July 2014 at 21:00 UTC (daytime for the Americas and Pacific Islands) or on Thursday, 14 August 2014 at 9:00 UTC (daytime for Europe, Middle East, Asia).

WikiCup 2014 June newsletter[edit]

After an extremely close race, Round 3 is over. 244 points secured a place in Round 4, which is comparable to previous years- 321 was required in 2013, while 243 points were needed in 2012. Pool C's Smithsonian Institution Godot13 (submissions) was the round's highest scorer, mostly due to a 32 featured pictures, including both scans and photographs. Also from Pool C, Scotland Casliber (submissions) finished second overall, claiming three featured articles, including the high-importance Grus (constellation). Third place was Pool B's , whose contributions included featured articles Russian battleship Poltava (1894) and Russian battleship Peresvet. Pool C saw the highest number of participants advance, with six out of eight making it to the next round.

The round saw this year's first featured portal, with Republic of Rose Island Sven Manguard (submissions) taking Portal:Literature to featured status. The round also saw the first good topic points, thanks to Florida 12george1 (submissions) and the 2013 Atlantic hurricane season. This means that all content types have been claimed this year. Other contributions of note this round include a featured topic on Maya Angelou's autobiographies from Idaho Figureskatingfan (submissions), a good article on the noted Czech footballer Tomáš Rosický from Bartošovice v Orlických horách Cloudz679 (submissions) and a now-featured video game screenshot, freely released due to the efforts of Republic of Rose Island Sven Manguard (submissions).

The judges would like to remind participants to update submission pages promptly. This means that content can be checked, and allows those following the competition (including those participating) to keep track of scores effectively. This round has seen discussion about various aspects of the WikiCup's rules and procedures. Those interested in the competition can be assured that formal discussions about how next year's competition will work will be opened shortly, and all are welcome to voice their views then. If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article candidates, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews. If you want to help out with the WikiCup, please do your bit to help keep down the review backlogs! Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck! If you wish to start or stop receiving this newsletter, please feel free to add or remove yourself from Wikipedia:WikiCup/Newsletter/Send.

492d Fighter Squadron[edit]

Yeah the user continues to revert our edits to his own. I have reverted them about 3 times and there is a "undo" war starting up. If he reverts them again, just leave it. I already reported him to AIV and requested page protection for that page specifically. Thanks for your help. A2 16:35, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

There's a thread at ANI about a spate of vandalism from 78.85.xxx addresses. I'd guess that there is quite a sophisticated, or at least concerted, bit of work going on here. Jamesx12345 16:42, 4 July 2014 (UTC)
I appreciate you helping your fellow rollbackers. I hope we can put a stop to this soon. A2 16:47, 4 July 2014 (UTC)
Apparently, Zzuuzz protected the page as I requested it through Twinkle. Thank you! A2 16:48, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

2010 Haiti earthquake[edit]

Hi. Just to let you know that I feel it was unwise to remove the proposed "merge" tag from the above article, and set up the redirect that you did on Romel Joseph Day. Although I think we're on the same side here, I'd prefer to wait a little longer before taking action. I don't expect that the merge will add more than a sentence or two to the main article, but it will allow us to remove the article on Romel Joseph Day, which strikes me as non-notable. However, the "merge" proposal has only been around since May of this year, and neither of these two articles is particularly well-trafficked, so I feel we should wait for about three months before taking action. If there's no substantial input to the discussion on the Talk Page after that time, I feel we could probably then move forward to a merge, combined with an Afd on Romel Joseph Day. Any input you can make to this would be much appreciated. Thanks. RomanSpa (talk) 05:55, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

I don't think any mention should be made of it at all in the main article, and it certainly doesn't merit its own article. Two editors wanting it merged is enough to make it happen. Jamesx12345 21:30, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Alfred Montmarquette for deletion, because the article doesn't clearly say why the subject is important enough to be included in an encyclopedia.

La Bolduc[edit]

Thanks for your message. Sorry my edit summary was a bit snarky, I do that sometimes. The article is as bad as it gets for red links. It's almost as if someone went around just randomly putting brackets around groups of words. I'm not sure how to fix. Replace reds with italics, bolds or just remove the brackets and leave as plain text. Usually I try to fix the reds by finding the article with the right name, but here it's just so blatant. I don't know what "disagreement" there would be - until this is resolved it has to have a maintenance tag flagging the issue. SlightSmile 23:30, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

Fedora GAN review[edit]

Hi! You should probably close Talk:Fedora (operating system)/GA1 and update Talk:Fedora (operating system) – apparently there is no ongoing effort to address your concerns. — Dmitrij D. Czarkoff (talktrack) 15:42, 19 July 2014 (UTC)

I was thinking that - normally I'd have closed it after a week, but you can never be sure if a user across different IPs has got a message. Jamesx12345 16:06, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
I don't think it is your problem: this IP is supposed to address the concerns as every other editor. He would have a watchlist if he opted for account; but he did not. Not getting timely informed is a product of this choice. — Dmitrij D. Czarkoff (talktrack) 16:42, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
I like to be sympathetic to IP users as they can produce some fantastic work, especially on computing related articles - see Debian - but you can't expect that every time. Jamesx12345 16:49, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
