Review request

I know this is not your primary area of contribution when it comes to Wikipedia but could you please review the article I wrote on Tabitha and Napoleon D'umo? I posted a peer review at WikiProject Biography because I wanted a review from a specific community of users that focused on biographies (or dance) to review the article. The problem is that my request has sat there since August without a comment. I knew that WikiProject Dance was dead but I didn't know that WikiProject Biography was dead too so my request is now sitting there dormant. I am approaching you in particular for a review because I have been accused in the past of the article lacking NPOV. Your edit history shows that you edit articles on all types of subjects and since you're one of the most active Wikipedians I figured you would be a good resource for determining whether or not this article is actually bias. Would you mind providing a review? I would appreciate it. Let me know. //Gbern3 (talk) 23:00, 7 November 2011 (UTC)

Thanks

Thank you for correcting the typo in the Thomas Torrance article.Ba taylor976 (talk) 03:07, 8 November 2011 (UTC)

Dashes in DOIs

This wasn't something I did intentionally - it happened as part of AWB general fixes. I'll report it as a problem. Colonies Chris (talk) 14:12, 20 November 2011 (UTC)

Bad edit

This edit is obviously bad, not something a human would have done. What's the magic notation to tell your bot not to do that? How many ohter places have this mistake? Can you take "page" as a clue and look at it before letting the bot auto-fock it? Dicklyon (talk) 17:18, 26 November 2011 (UTC)

Well, I don't see why you needed to be inpolite. Yes, I skip when |page= contains what looks like a range, and manually assess those later, however the skip check didn't allow for all whitespace correctly, this is now fixed. I've put a non-breaking hyphen in the field on that cite, this means that AWB will not convert it to a range whether by bot or user. Rjwilmsi 17:32, 26 November 2011 (UTC)
How does one produce a non-breaking hyphen? And how would editors who enter such references be expected to figure out to do that? Dicklyon (talk) 17:34, 26 November 2011 (UTC)
I copy it from the article on hyphen. There is not a need for editors to follow this convention en masse, I only use it when a reference is specifically identified to me so that the specific one is dealt with. Rjwilmsi 17:40, 26 November 2011 (UTC)
