Sorry about clobbering your work on Bikes to Rwanda. I had just spent about an hour finding and formatting all new references and had an edit conflict when I tried to save. It looked like you tried to salvage the old references, which weren't too great, so I went ahead with my replacement. I apologize again and hope there are no hard feelings. If you are pissed, I would understand, and please let me know so I can make it right. -AndrewDressel (talk) 14:12, 29 March 2015 (UTC)

@AndrewDressel: Not at all, and thanks for the rewrite. That's what it needed. If anyone wants to put the old references back in they're in the history. – Margin1522 (talk) 17:35, 29 March 2015 (UTC)

Sorting per TPG[edit]

Hi, Thanks for trying to sort at Talk:Fossil fuel divestment. Thus far I am the only one who has posted at that talk page, and I reverted.

Threads are sorted in order based on first post (when the thread was created).

Posts within a thread are generally sorted with new at the bottom. Unless, of course, the thread gets complicated with several layers of indenting, in which case new posts get sorted by sub-branch also.

PS, I put the link to the noticeboard discussion under my own section "questionable sources" on basis of WP:MULTI. We can use whatever section headings everyone finds helpful, however. On the other hand, no one but me is yet making use of the talk page. NewsAndEventsGuy (talk) 18:49, 30 March 2015 (UTC)
Yes, sorry I looked only at the last one, without noticing that the section contained two posts. I was intending to reply at RSN, but wanted to look at the context first. – Margin1522 (talk) 18:53, 30 March 2015 (UTC)|
No prob, I wish everyone paid attention to organizing comments. Looking forward to your thoughts at RSN. NewsAndEventsGuy (talk) 18:59, 30 March 2015 (UTC)

This wiki kitten is here to express my respect for successfully defending the article on IL from my deletion proposal. And thanks for creating a helpful article!

A new reference tool[edit]

Hello Books & Bytes subscribers. There is a new Visual Editor reference feature in development called Citoid. It is designed to "auto-fill" references using a URL or DOI. We would really appreciate you testing whether TWL partners' references work in Citoid. Sharing your results will help the developers fix bugs and improve the system. If you have a few minutes, please visit the testing page for simple instructions on how to try this new tool. Regards, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 18:47, 10 April 2015 (UTC)
