Blocked IP[edit]

{{unblock|83.19.130.66 is a valid IP address my firm hires from ISP.}}

The address is blocked as an openproxy, that suggest that the software your firm is running to act as a proxy server to allow serveral computers to share the internet connction is misconfigured and allows computers from outside your firm to also connect through it to websites. Until that misconfiguration is fixed the IP address must stay blocked. If you talk to the people responsible and they fix the problem so it is no longer acting as an open proxy post the unblock tag again and we can recheck. --pgk(talk) 17:37, 19 April 2006 (UTC)

{{unblock|as far as I know this proxy is not accessible from the outside, please recheck}}

Looks ok at the moment. --pgk(talk) 15:44, 29 April 2006 (UTC)


OpenType[edit]

Kocio, thank you for your interest in the OpenType article. It is true that one often finds single-sentence paragraphs in English. They are not necessarily bad or wrong. However, please see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Lead_section#Introductory_text. The instructions are for an opening paragraph which "should establish the context in which the topic is being considered, by supplying the set of circumstances or facts that surround it." This is standard Wikipedia practice. I think the lead paragraph needs to be rewritten with the history moved into the body, but splitting the first sentence from the opening paragraph does not help that. Thanks.

Please cite a reliable source for all of your information. Thank you. Also, please make sure to use proper English. DKqwerty (talk) 14:32, 12 October 2009 (UTC)

double paragraph[edit]

Thank you for removing double paragraph. I lost everything when I realized I had failed to log in. I knew it was there but couldn't find it.

Suggestion to Merge 4 US related projects with Wikipedia:WikiProject United States[edit]

It has been suggested that 4 US related project be merged into Wikipedia:WikiProject United States due to a long state of inactivity. I noticed that you had made some edits to at least one of them recently so I thought you might want to voice your opinion about the merger. Please comment at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject United States#Close out some Inactive/nonfunctional US related WikiProjects. --Kumioko (talk) 18:46, 3 November 2010 (UTC)

Whitney Houston[edit]

Should the summary part you created for Legacy be separated from the Voice section, since it also has to do with her voice? I'm not even sure Voice should have its own section, considering it is so small and her influence is also about her voice. This is why I originally combined Voice and influence. Also, sometimes the initial summaries are skipped in the table of contents when readers see that there are subsections. Take for example, the Legacy title; a lot of people will assume that there is nothing in that section and that it is only a title, opting to go straight for the subsections. This happened plenty of time on Wikipedia. Flyer22 (talk) 19:15, 2 February 2011 (UTC)

Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference[edit]

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and you will still be able to manually mark your edits as being minor in the usual way.

For established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. With the script in place, you can continue with this functionality indefinitely (its use is governed by WP:MINOR). If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 19:00, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

OER inquiry[edit]

Hi Kocio, I'm sending you this message because you're one of about 300 users who have recently edited an article in the umbrella category of open educational resources (OER) (or open education). In evaluating several projects we've been working on (e.g. the WIKISOO course and WikiProject Open), my colleague Pete Forsyth and I have wondered who chooses to edit OER-related articles and why. Regardless of whether you've taken the WIKISOO course yourself - and/or never even heard the term OER before - we'd be extremely grateful for your participation in this brief, anonymous survey before 27 April. No personal data is being collected. If you have any ideas or questions, please get in touch. My talk page awaits. Thanks for your support! - Sara FB (talk) 20:43, 23 April 2014 (UTC)
