Comment[edit]

Hi and thanks for your many helpful edits. I've noticed that you usually write four ~ in edit summaries. This isn't necessary and doesn't fill any function, perhaps you're thinking of the four ~ we use when signing comments? Not needed in edit summaries. :) Keep up the good work and have a nice day! JdeJ (talk) 21:27, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

You're right! I got used to adding that so that I wouldn't forget them in the talk pages. I'll stop. ;-) Quebec99 (talk) 21:38, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

US Navy edit : good catch, thanks. Keep up the good work. -Fnlayson (talk) 21:12, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

Proper style for punctuation with inline citations[edit]

Hi, friend. I see you've been going around "cleaning up" punctuation around references. Please stop. You're actually changing proper style to improper style. Please see the relevant guideline in our Manual of Style (Wikipedia:Manual_of_Style#Punctuation_and_inline_citations): "Inline citations are generally placed after any punctuation such as a comma or period, with no intervening space." This also happens to be the style prescribed by the Chicago Manual of Style. I've reverted these edits of yours where I've been able to identify them. Of course, your efforts to correct misspellings and other (actual) typographical errors are much appreciated. Best, Dan.—DCGeist (talk) 01:53, 13 January 2009 (UTC)

Hi Q99. I have undone your changes at F4U Corsair as they broke a reference and removed periods from sentences in the footnotes. I agree that textual footnotes should appear after the punctuation in the text, but the examples shown at Wikipedia:Citing_sources#Inline_citations seem to indicate there is nothing wrong with having a period at the end of a footnote. (I have seen it done both ways; it seems to be a matter of personal preference.) It seems particulary appropriate where the footnote is not just a citation to a source, but contains explanatory matter also, as did a few of the footnotes of this article. Regards, Kablammo (talk) 15:18, 17 March 2009 (UTC)
No problem. Like you said, personal preference. Sorry I missed the broken reference. I preview before I save, but I missed that one. You reverted all the changes? Is it OK to fix stuff like double punctuation around references '"Saint Valentine's Day Massacre".[37][38]. '? Just trying to help, 204.152.235.217 (talk) 18:13, 17 March 2009 (UTC)
Sure. (Did I miss that one?) I reverted mainly because it was easier, and there were a few textual footnotes which needed punctuation. Regards, Kablammo (talk) 18:22, 17 March 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for your cleanup-- sorry about the duplication. But between the two of us I think we got the cites right. (Now for the text . . . ) Regards, Kablammo (talk) 14:46, 18 March 2009 (UTC)
Hi Quebec99! Near the Save Page button, please notice the checkbox "This is a minor edit". I think you can check it when you fix typos and puctuations. See the related help page for more information. Thanks for your contributions! --YaK (talk) 14:40, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

Formatting inline refs[edit]

Hi Quebec99,

I don't understand this change. You have turned all of the vertically arranged inline refs into single-line blobs. Your explanation was WP:REFB, which doesn't mention this. (The arrangement of a template onto multiple lines does not harm its function, but can make it much easier for editors to read and edit the template.) Can you tell me what's going on? WhatamIdoing (talk) 02:41, 9 February 2010 (UTC)

The reference was for punctuation after a reference. The inline references are personal preference. I changed them while I was looking for the other changes. Just personal preference... read it like a book vs. reading a list. I reverted them back to lists. Quebec99 (talk) 16:06, 9 February 2010 (UTC)
Are you aware of WP:REFPUNC? There is no rule that requires the punctuation to be either before or after the reference. WhatamIdoing (talk) 19:28, 9 February 2010 (UTC)
Just following the 'advice' of DCGeist from last year... see above. Quebec99 (talk) 19:38, 9 February 2010 (UTC)

William J. Brady[edit]

In your recent edits to William J. Brady you indicated See WP:REFB#Inserting a reference. Yet, the edit mostly consisted in putting a period at the end of each reference. That section cited doesn't mention punctuation. Wikipedia:Footnotes while is shows examples with the period at the end of each citation, does not discuss it. Most, but not all, of the citation templates place a period at the end of the citation. It appears to be a matter of style. So under Manual of Style#Internal consistency if an article is all one way, don't change it. --Bejnar (talk) 01:28, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

Astroturfing refs[edit]

Thanks for your efforts on cleaning up citations, however your edits to Astroturfing really didn't accomplish anything, and you accidentally deleted a "4" from a parameter name. And your edit summary didn't really seem to correspond to the edit... The change of the simple "citation" into a "cite web" was also not the ideal change — see:Wikipedia:Citation_templates for more info. But your edit did prompt me to update the citations to use the proper "cite conference" and "cite arXiv" templates. Anyway, keep up the good work, but don't waste your time on things like the spacing between parameters and between the "|" and "=" delimiters — such as "| date = 24 August 2011" vs. "|date=24 August 2011". It has absolutely no affect on the actual display of the reference — the templates take care of all that. There are plenty of real problems to fix without wasting time on stuff that doesn't matter. Thanks. Mojoworker (talk) 19:17, 24 August 2011 (UTC)

No problem cutting you some slack — I was afraid I was sounding too critical. It's always good when someone is trying to help the project but, with all the things that need fixing, there's no sense in wasting time on stuff that doesn't matter — and finding where things are documented here isn't always easy. The Wikipedia:Citation_templates documents most of the common templates and is a good page to keep bookmarked. Occasionally you may find one that's not documented there, such as the "Cite arXiv" mentioned above. For a (as far as I know) complete list, see Category:Citation templates.

dead url[edit]

Hi Quebec99, saw your recent edits at Hallucinatory realism. According to template:cite web, the "deadurl" option is used if: "If set to 'no', the title display is adjusted; useful for when the URL is archived preemptively but still live" - So I was wondering why you use it by default, it seems like a specialized purpose. -- Green Cardamom (talk) 16:31, 13 September 2013 (UTC)

I find it easier to add when I update a link, in case the link evers does break, someone else would see it and change it to yes. Quebec99 (talk) 16:42, 13 September 2013 (UTC)
Why do you think it says "If set to 'no', the title display is adjusted" - I don't know just wondering. Adjusted how? -- Green Cardamom (talk) 17:21, 13 September 2013 (UTC)
I'm not sure. There is probably a page somewhere that describes how that works, but I have no idea where. Quebec99 (talk) 18:06, 14 September 2013 (UTC)
Sorry, I missed that part of the question the first time. The |title displays no matter what |deadurl= is set to, but the URL that it takes you to is different. If |deadurl=no it uses |url. If |deadurl=yes it uses |archiveurl=, if it is set. Most of this I have found by trial and error. Quebec99 (talk) 17:40, 13 September 2013 (UTC)

Suggest using |displayauthors=8 on citation errors[edit]

I noticed in this edit that you added "|displayauthors=9" to a citation. This removed the "et al." from the displayed citation and eliminates the CS1 error, but it decreased the accuracy of the citation. The cited article has more than nine authors. I suggest "|displayauthors=8" for these citations unless you are willing to add the remaining authors or check the referenced journal article to verify that there are exactly 9 authors. "|displayauthors=8" will show eight authors and then "et al." while eliminating the CS1 error. – Jonesey95 (talk) 22:45, 7 October 2013 (UTC)

Using |quote= instead of |date= or |others=?[edit]

In this edit and some others, it appears that you replaced |date= with |quote= as a way of eliminating a CS1 date error and that you also used |quote= to eliminate a CS1 coauthors error.

In the first case, the date definitely does not belong in |quote=. It should be left in |date= until the module is fixed to allow valid date ranges. If the article is removed from the error category, the citation is less likely to ever be formatted correctly, since it will not be brought to anyone's attention with an error message.

In the second case, |others= should be used for translators and similar contributors. – Jonesey95 (talk) 03:53, 20 December 2013 (UTC)

Please add Module talk:Citation/CS1 to your watch list. There is a lot of discussion there about proposed fixes to the CS1 citation module code. And if you applied |quote= to other articles in this way, please undo those changes so that the citations can be formatted properly. Thanks. – Jonesey95 (talk) 03:57, 20 December 2013 (UTC)
I knew that was not an ideal fix, just a way to "try to" fix the error. How do you add a page to your watchlist? Quebec99 (talk) 15:08, 20 December 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for the response. Visit the page, then click the hollow blue star at the upper right, next to the "View History" link. The blue star will fill in. Then when you go to your Watchlist, you will see if there have been new additions to that page. The other page where these errors are often discussed is Help talk:Citation Style 1. – Jonesey95 (talk) 15:16, 20 December 2013 (UTC)

While I do appreciate people fixing my many typos & stupid errors in cite templates, it would have been better if you had left your good work until I had removed the inuse tag, which was put there with good reason. I have just lost a complex copyedit.TheLongTone (talk) 16:53, 3 January 2014 (UTC)

Sorry, I don't know what "inuse" does. Quebec99 (talk) 17:22, 3 January 2014 (UTC)
I can only assume because you don't bother to look at what you are editing. It places a notice on the page saying it is being actively edited and not to barge in and interfere with their work. You just did it a cecond time. I would have thought that the name of the template is pretty self-explanatory, but maybe not.TheLongTone (talk) 17:27, 3 January 2014 (UTC)
Can you show me what you are talking about? I don't see anything in the pages that I have recently edited. Quebec99 (talk) 17:46, 3 January 2014 (UTC)
Eiffel tower. At the top of the section on lifts. Plain to see. It is possible to perform a section edit without messing up the work being done on the section I am attempting to work on. This article requires major work, not fiddling about.TheLongTone (talk) 17:56, 3 January 2014 (UTC)
Now I see it. Never noticed that before... and never used it for sure. To get around the problem of edit conflicts, I have been doing just one or two things at a time... and I still get trashed sometimes. Thanks for the info. I will look for this in the future, and maybe even try using it. Quebec99 (talk) 18:24, 3 January 2014 (UTC)
Probably should have used the whole page one, appreciate that the one halfway down a long article could easily be missed. You're not the only one to miss it, another editor just did the same!TheLongTone (talk) 18:31, 3 January 2014 (UTC)
I assume that at the beginning of an article, it would be {{inuse}}? Quebec99 (talk) 18:34, 3 January 2014 (UTC)
Got it in one. Sorry to snippy earlier, but disentangling other peoples syntax is hard work even if I do get a certain pleasure out of it.TheLongTone (talk) 21:57, 3 January 2014 (UTC)
No problem. I've learned to let things slide, as most people are here to make things better. Thanks for the advice. I will look more closely in the future. Quebec99 (talk) 22:02, 3 January 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for January 9[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited List of Bangladeshi films of 2014, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Romantic (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). 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.

OER inquiry[edit]

Hi Quebec99, 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) 20:47, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

The simple answer is this page. Quebec99 (talk) 21:35, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

Deadurl parameter in citations[edit]

Hi Maurice, thanks for your edits to fix citations, particularly on the articles about Australian Paralympians that I've worked on, such as Brendan Burkett. However, there's no need to use "deadurl=yes", as that is the default setting of that parameter. Graham87 14:05, 18 May 2014 (UTC)

Nor is there a need to change he accessdate parameter, as you did at Bruce Wallrodt. Graham87 03:01, 19 May 2014 (UTC)
