Hi, just to say thanks for taking up the request for the new Non-League task force logo! Much appreciated. Delsion23 (talk) 09:58, 6 August 2012 (UTC)

Hi, no problem, seems I forgot to upload it though. And now the request is gone. so here it is, if the Task Force wants any changes just let me know any I'll make them. — Jdcollins13 (talk) 20:24, 6 August 2012 (UTC)
English Non-league football task force vector logo
It's looking great, thanks! The only change that may be good would be for the NL to be white (or any lighter colour) so that it is more readable with the red/orange background. Delsion23 (talk) 20:48, 6 August 2012 (UTC)
Not a problem. — Jdcollins13 (talk) 21:00, 6 August 2012 (UTC)

Help on User Behaviour[edit]

A user (say User-1) cited meru shikhara lai in a Wikipedia talk page on 3 August 2012.

Same day I asked User-1 to write entire hymn in his native language script as because I found lai can have at least 3 different words in his native language. In addition, I asked User-1 to write 2 other words both in her/his native script as well as Devanagari script.

A 2nd user (say User-2) jumped over and started responding for User-1. The User-2 indicated that s(he) is not disingenuous - s(he) as well as User-1 would not respond.

It is 10-day past since I asked for this information.

Any feedback/suggestion so that I get the information from User-1 and or User-2?

Appreciate it very much, thanks!

Kurmaa (talk) 13:08, 13 August 2012 (UTC)

I think first of all, if you wish to discuss the matter separately with User1 and User2, you might consider politely contacting them on each User's personal talkpage.
As far as their not responding to you, Wikipedia is all volunteers, so they aren't under any obligation to make any edits, nor respond to any comments. So there really is not much you can do besides wait for a response or try to seek out other users with the linguistic knowledge to assist you. I hope this is helpful. — Jdcollins13 (talk) 14:37, 13 August 2012 (UTC)
I shall take this approach as 1st step, appreciate it very much. It has caught my attention, according to a source, User-1 has been enjoying lump-sum-payment time-to-time from a local group out there for producing Wikipedia articles. -Kurmaa (talk) 20:07, 13 August 2012 (UTC)
That seems to be a touch vague to me, but if you have valid proof of a conflict of interest, then you should go to an Admin with that information. — Jdcollins13 (talk)
Working on it as well, appreciate it very much, -Kurmaa (talk) 18:54, 14 August 2012 (UTC)
User:Kurmaa has given me a specific date by which to reply, which sounds like a WP:NLT issue to me ([1]). I have answered his queries to the best of my abilities. ([2]). Could you advise what is the best possible path for me to take on this? Thanks. Chaipau (talk) 16:02, 17 August 2012 (UTC)
As I told Kurmaa, you are under absolutely no obligation to reply or edit, so your actions are totally up to you. If you wish to reply to his coments, or assist in editing it is at your discretion. However, if you feel menaced or harassed by this user you should contact an Admin right away, as such behavior is certainly counter-productive to an active volunteer community. — Jdcollins13 (talk) 16:15, 17 August 2012 (UTC)

Thank you very much! --Lecen (talk) 17:12, 23 August 2012 (UTC)

No problem. — Jdcollins13 (talk) 17:15, 23 August 2012 (UTC)
I saw that you also edited the second picture. Thanks, Collins, I really appreciate what you did. --Lecen (talk) 17:38, 23 August 2012 (UTC)
Once again, no problem, and you can call me Joel. — Jdcollins13 (talk) 17:40, 23 August 2012 (UTC)
Joel, is it too hard to make this kind of picture with a translucid background? If it isn't, would you mind if I ask you to help me again in the future in case I need it? --Lecen (talk) 18:15, 23 August 2012 (UTC)
No it isn't hard, if fact it's pretty simple, so no I wouldn't mind at all. — Jdcollins13 (talk) 19:31, 24 August 2012 (UTC)
It's good to hear that. Thanks a lot. Cheers, --Lecen (talk) 23:11, 24 August 2012 (UTC)

Joel, I wonder if you could help me out with this request? I would be grateful if you could. Cheers, --Lecen (talk) 12:26, 8 September 2012 (UTC)

Hey sorry I didn't catch that before someone else took care of it. — Jdcollins13 (talk) 14:21, 12 September 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for May 31[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Triangle choke, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Matt Brown and Dave Morgan (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.

Article Feedback Tool update[edit]

Hey Jdcollins13. I'm contacting you because you're involved in the Article Feedback Tool in some way, either as a previous newsletter recipient or as an active user of the system. As you might have heard, a user recently anonymously disabled the feedback tool on 2,000 pages. We were unable to track or prevent this due to the lack of logging feature in AFT5. We're deeply sorry for this, as we know that quite a few users found the software very useful, and were using it on their articles.

We've now re-released the software, with the addition of a logging feature and restrictions on the ability to disable. Obviously, we're not going to automatically re-enable it on each article—we don't want to create a situation where it was enabled by users who have now moved on, and feedback would sit there unattended—but if you're interested in enabling it for your articles, it's pretty simple to do. Just go to the article you want to enable it on, click the "request feedback" link in the toolbox in the sidebar, and AFT5 will be enabled for that article.

Again, we're very sorry about this issue; hopefully it'll be smooth sailing after this :). If you have any questions, just drop them at the talkpage. Thanks! Okeyes (WMF) 22:08, 1 September 2013 (UTC)

NHL logo needs to be updated with proper version[edit]

Hi JD, this would be my first time ever messaging through Wikipedia, so I hope I do this right. I just wanted to call to your attention that I noticed that the logo featured on the NHL (National Hockey League) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NHL is an incorrect version, seems to be missing a gradient overlay. If you need the correct version, I have uploaded it to Brands of the World and is available to download http://www.brandsoftheworld.com/logo/nhl-2. Luke Groundrunner (talk) 14:28, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

Hi Luke, you did it right! as far as the logo goes I encourage you to be bold. Feel free to go to the File page here and upload the new version there (there is a link at the bottom). If you have any other questions feel free to ask. — Jdcollins13 (talk) 15:19, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
