I noticed that with this edit] you pasted the text from a template into the file page. We don't do that but actually use the template like this {{PD-textlogo}} to achieve the proper details and links. Good luck. ww2censor (talk) 17:32, 21 March 2014 (UTC)

Phineas and Ferb Edit[edit]

Hi,

Why did you reverted my edit on Phineas and Ferb website? If you see the info box it says that the show is on Disney channel and DisneyXD.

Please let me know,

Thanks.



Because you linked to the Disney XD homepage, not the Phineas and Ferb site on Disney XD. Olliechick (talk) 00:30, 22 March 2014 (UTC)


This is the link i used * Official website(Disney XD)
If you click it will redirect you to the Phineas and Ferb page.
Actually, that link redirects to the homepage. www.disney.com.au/disney-xd/phineas-and-ferb links to the P&F page.

I think that happens because you are in Australia. Please do me a favor and click this link http://disneychannel.disney.com/phineas-and-ferb and see if redirect you to the home page. If so it's because of copyrights on each country. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sundios (talkcontribs) 21:22, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

That links to the homepage as well. And by the way I'm in New Zealand not Australia. Olliechick (talk) 01:52, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Language Perfect[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Language Perfect requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. TheLongTone (talk) 21:11, 28 March 2014 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:Language Perfect logo.jpg)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:Language Perfect logo.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Werieth (talk) 16:56, 31 March 2014 (UTC)

April 2014[edit]

Information icon Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, articles should not be moved, as you did to Steve Jobs (book), without good reason. They need to have a name that is both accurate and intuitive. Wikipedia has some guidelines in place to help with this. Generally, a page should only be moved to a new title if the current name doesn't follow these guidelines. Also, if a page move is being discussed, consensus needs to be reached before anybody moves the page. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you.

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to List of The 39 Clues characters 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:
  • Katherine Cahill (from Cahill Island, [Ireland]])<ref name="Tomas"/> is the founder of the [[The 39 Clues#Ekaterina|Ekats]]. She is the sister of
  • *'''[[Isaac Newton]]''' {{post-nominals|country=GBR|PRS]}} was an [[English people|English]] [[physicist]], [[mathematician]], [[astronomy|astronomer]], [[

Your signature[edit]

Hi Olliechick

I just spotted your signature on a talk page, and was surprised by its huge length: 617 characters of wiki markup. (see for example [1], [2], [3])

However, WP:SIGLENGTH says that signatures "with a lot of HTML/wiki markup make page editing and discussion more difficult". It's normally impossible to create a sig more than 255 characters long, so I dunno how you manage such great length (through a template perhaps), but 2½ the limit is too much. I'm sure you don't mean to be disruptrive, but unfortunately that really is disruptive.

I took a look at the code, and your signature contains a lot of redundant template-parser code. Stripping out those parser functions reduces the length to 273 characters, which is a big improvement, but still leaves you over the limit. So I simplified the HTML/CSS markup, and was left with a signature only 125 characters long.

The code is: <span style="font-family:sans-serif;color:#438fff">[[User:Olliechick|'''Olliechick''']] ([[User talk:Olliechick|talk]])</span>

It displays exactly the same as before, and will do so under all conditions: Olliechick (talk)

If you go Special:Preferences and paste that highlighted code into the signature box, your sig would look just the same and cause much less clutter.

Thanks! --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 02:13, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for picking that up @BrownHairedGirl:, but it's not actually the same. The font colour is different in what you're suggesting - see User:Olliechick/sandbox/1. Olliechick (talk) 03:13, 10 April 2014 (UTC)
Sorry, there was a typo in my code, which I have fixed above.
Even so, there remains a slight difference in display, which I hadn't spotted.
So here's a slightly more verbose version (187 characters), which does exactly what you want.

The code is: [[User:Olliechick|<span style="font-family:sans-serif;color:#438fff">'''Olliechick'''</span>]] ([[User talk:Olliechick|<span style="font-family:sans-serif;color:#438fff;">talk</span>]])

It displays : Olliechick (talk)
Even if that's not exactly what you want, please do stop using the huge long version. It really is excessive. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 04:13, 10 April 2014 (UTC)
@BrownHairedGirl: thanks. I've now updated it as above. Olliechick (talk) 04:36, 10 April 2014 (UTC)
That's great! Glad to help :) --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 05:20, 10 April 2014 (UTC)
