Replaced several sections[edit]

In this edit MediaWiki message delivery overwrote several sections of my talk page when delivering a message. --LukeSurl t c 10:57, 18 November 2014 (UTC)

Hi LukeSurl. You basically hit the same issue as Elvey which I've explained here. I fixed your talk page with this edit. This edit is the one that introduced the unclosed {{. Hope that helps. --MZMcBride (talk) 05:16, 19 November 2014 (UTC)


<merged with above section>

As with LukeSurl, message delivery on my talk page disappeared several sections. I assume this is a bug with MediaWiki message delivery. Please help get it fixed. and... kudos and thanks for your many contributions. Anyone looking into it? --Elvey(tc) 16:48, 18 November 2014 (UTC)

Hi. Yes, I looked into it. My reply is here. In short: not a MassMessage issue. :-) --MZMcBride (talk) 05:07, 19 November 2014 (UTC)
My goal was just to prevent lots of future problems with a tool that gets used a lot and I (mistakenly) thought had a new bug likely to cause widespread damage, some of which would go unnoticed, even if only a small fraction of its edits were doing damage like what resulted on my and LukeSurl's pages. Also, no one had initially responded to LukeSurl's message for several hours, or mine, so I felt it appropriate to wave a flag, so to speak, 23 hours after the edits had been made, which was (too?) effective. Anyway, I see the problem in both cases was mismatched curly braces. Perhaps User:A930913's User:BracketBot should be directed at draft mass messages. The documentation shows no way to opt a page in to BracketBot, only a way to opt mainspace pages out of it. --Elvey(tc) 14:18, 19 November 2014 (UTC)

Using echo[edit]
