I find it interesting, how many editor's including admins have double standards on WP. Double standards is what is going to bring WP down eventually, which is really rather sad.

September 2014[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Order of the Thistle may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "{}"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:
  • ** [[Secretary]] [[Elizabeth Roads]], {{post-nominals|country=GBR|sep=,|LVO} ([[Snawdoun Herald]], [[Lyon Clerk and Keeper of the Records]]

Crown Honours Lists[edit]

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Crown Honours Lists, and it appears to include material copied directly from http://www.cyclopaedia.de/wiki/New_Years_Honours.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. The article will be reviewed to determine if there are any copyright issues.

If substantial content is duplicated and it is not public domain or available under a compatible license, it will be deleted. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material. You may use such publications as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. See our copyright policy for further details. (If you own the copyright to the previously published content and wish to donate it, see Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials for the procedure.) CorenSearchBot (talk) 06:42, 20 September 2014 (UTC)

  • Hello, it does look like the bot is confused, as it looks like you adapted content from a related Wikipedia article for this. That's fine, as it is free, though attribution is required according to the license. It looks like that content was from the lead of New Year Honours. If you can confirm this, I'll take care of the attribution. CrowCaw 21:42, 28 September 2014 (UTC)
Yes it is, thankyou. Though I actually blanked that page and redirected it to Crown Honours to clean up the large amount of unnecessary pages. Someone else has reverted my clean-up. Nford24 (PE121 Personnel Request Form) 02:16, 29 September 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for September 24[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited 2014 Special Honours, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Mearns. 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.

Query[edit]

Love your post-nom template! How can we remove the underscores though? I remain as ever, yours, etc. (Mr) Gareth E Kegg (talk) 19:31, 13 October 2014 (UTC) Esq.

Hey. thanks. Do you mean the comma's? It's probably better having them bu tif you wish to remove them, then just take out the 'sep=,' from the template. Nford24 (PE121 Personnel Request Form) 19:40, 13 October 2014 (UTC)
I never really know Wiki technical language, but as you hover over the post noms you can see the page title with_under_scores_like_this. Gareth E Kegg (talk) 19:52, 13 October 2014 (UTC)
O, I cannot see that coming up on my computer sorry. I'm not too sure how to fix that. Nford24 (PE121 Personnel Request Form) 00:13, 14 October 2014 (UTC)

Template:Post-nominals/CAN[edit]

Why does a direct link to Order of Merit violate . If there were different classes and each had a section in the target then I could see linking to that but in this case there isn't. Cheers. CBWeather, Talk, Seal meat for supper? 07:43, 21 October 2014 (UTC)

WP:POSTNOM wants the full honour to be present when you mouse over the link. Having 'OBE' for example as a post-nom, when you mouse over it, it should read 'Officer of the Order of the British Empire' and not just 'Order of the British Empire'. Though it maybe a template, it still comes under the same user guidelines of just spelling it out i.e. OBE . Nford24 (PE121 Personnel Request Form) 11:51, 21 October 2014 (UTC)
However, postnom does not state that. It may well be that is the intention but without it specifically stating that there is no way that an editor is going to figure it out. CBWeather, Talk, Seal meat for supper? 12:12, 21 October 2014 (UTC)

November 2014[edit]

Your recent editing history shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. To resolve the content dispute, please do not revert or change the edits of others when you get reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. The best practice at this stage is to discuss, not edit-war. See BRD for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.
You seem to be deeply involved in a revert war regarding MOS/flags on a number of articles. Please find somewhere to discuss these issues, rather than continuing to revert. A fluffernutter is a sandwich! (talk) 23:35, 17 November 2014 (UTC)

I find stage that I am the only one to receive this notice A fluffernutter is a sandwich!. I therefore consider it a rude slap in the face. The other editors involved have reverted my edits repeatedly for breaching various 'rules', though I have accommodated each 'rule' accordingly and as my last edits stands does not cause any 'rule' breaches. I honestly believe there is quite a bit of WP:JUSTDONTLIKEIT. Nford24 (PE121 Personnel Request Form) 06:00, 18 November 2014 (UTC)
