Transactive Memory Article
Hello, my name is Jonathan and I recently made some heavy changes to the Transactive memory article. I was wondering if you could take a look to see what you think since you edited the article in the past. Thank you! JonKush (talk) 00:13, 14 December 2012 (UTC)
R from title without diacritics and similar templates
I notice that your bot is still making similar tags:
- Perte du Rhone Latest revision as of 14:02, 10 December 2012
- Jose Maria de la Cueva, 14th Duke of Albuquerque: Latest revision as of 01:24, 10 December 2012
As I said before "I think it is a bad idea to add these in a semi-automated way. The reasons is that it means non admin users can not move a page to any redirect that you so edit as any redirect with an edit history greater than one the have to go to WP:RM where there is frequently a backlog. I think the potential extra manual work this imposes on administrators out ways the benefits to the project that comes from such an additions." Your answer back in 2010 did not address the problem I suggest that you stop you bot making such tabs until such time as your proposal is implemented. -- PBS (talk) 16:51, 10 December 2012 (UTC)
- Please see Wikipedia talk:Requested moves#R from title without diacritics and similar templates -- PBS (talk) 17:05, 10 December 2012 (UTC)
- Following a related discussion with another editor I undertook to allow a fair window between the creation of the redirect and any tagging of it by my bot, so that editors would have a window to find & fix any move/redirect errors. In this run I'm tagging redirects that existed in the September 2012 database dump, so any problems/incorrect moves from these have had three months to get corrected. So my view is that the potential for extra trips to WP:RM is going to be pretty low. Rjwilmsi 18:52, 10 December 2012 (UTC)
Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited John Coffino, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page St. Peter's College (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.
Request for a review of Oligonucleotide synthesis
I am contacting you because you have been one of the contributors to Oligonucleotide synthesis. I listed this article for a review with an objective to improve it prior to submitting as a candidate for featured articles. I wonder whether you could please find some time to take a look and, provided that you feel like, write a review for this article. I would truly appreciate your help. Thank you, Chemist234 (talk) 05:08, 17 December 2012 (UTC)
Your edit to RIAA equalization
- (talk page stalker) The edit summary for this edit shows that the edit was to change the style of the quotation marks, which is one of the things that changed. However, the edit summary did not indicate that the edit also included other general fixes, such as adding non-breaking spaces and sorting the interwiki links. These general fixes are commonly made by editors using AWB. Hope this helps! GoingBatty (talk) 23:45, 20 December 2012 (UTC)
Request for Comment
Does WP:SIGCOV apply to bio of career defending people on death row? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Log/2012_December_17#Stephen_Aarons — Preceding unsigned comment added by Aar095 (talk • contribs) 07:47, 21 December 2012 (UTC)
Please contact me
Hi there - I am the Director, Community Advocacy for the Wikimedia Foundation, the non-profit that supports Wikipedia. It's very important that I talk to you - would you please email me at philippewikimedia.org at your earliest opportunity? Again, it's very important and urgent that I speak with you. Thank you.

|The Seasonal Barnstar|
|In recognition of your skill and dedication in maintaining AutoWikiBrowser throughout the year, I award you this Seasonal Barnstar. -- John of Reading (talk) 18:04, 22 December 2012 (UTC)|
- Thank you for correcting that accidental mistake. Rjwilmsi 01:03, 23 December 2012 (UTC)
AWB edits changing quotations
Your recent edit here is one of a substantial number of your edits that needlessly "corrected" dates inside of quotations. Please slow down a bit and look at what your edits are changing before clicking save. Alansohn (talk) 23:36, 22 December 2012 (UTC)
- MOS:QUOTE advises formatting of punctuation to house style. Was the exact formatting of decades in the diff you give a key part of the quotation? I resent the suggestion that I didn't understand edits I made. Rjwilmsi
You redirected Vanessa Martinez to Vanessa Martínez earlier this year; the former is a US actress, the latter a Puerto Rican swimmer. I can see how the mix-up occurred and can fix it myself, but wanted to post here in case it highlights a potential improvement to your bot.
- That's no problem. Pages or redirects can end up being moved over time as additional articles are created for individuals with the same/similar names. Rjwilmsi 08:41, 24 December 2012 (UTC)

Reverting Free location of article to paid one
In Dunning–Kruger effect, you undid my change ( Replacing doi:10.1016/j.obhdp.2007.05.002 (cost $31) with the free Pub Med Version at http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2702783/ : Same article, just a link to the free version mandated by the NIH rather than the Publishers).
I am curious why you did this? The link you reverted to only gets you the paper's abstract and you have to pay $31 for the full article. The PubMed link I changed it to gets you directly to the entire article without paying anything.
My sense is that directing to real information is more important than simply maintaining a uniform style. Comments??
- I didn't revert your change. I formatted the journal citation in the normal way and included the PMC (PubMed Central) identifier you added. The citation now includes the new PMC, original DOI and the title is linked to the free full-text listing on the PubMed Central database. This way we provide the best available information & links and maintain the citation formatting. Thanks Rjwilmsi 22:26, 29 December 2012 (UTC)
My humble apologies. I did not see that there were now two references. Keep up your good work!
Changing Stylised Unicode Quotes to Plain ASCII Ones.
In Baker's Game, you have made this commit that changed «“Berto”» (with Stylish Unicode quotes) into «"Berto"» (with plain ASCII quotes). Just for my own enlightenment - what was the reason for that? Why are unicode double quotes not a good idea in the English wikipedia. I should note that it's not hard for me to type them because I have a compose key defined, and I believe most modern systems, including ones based on MSIE6 (which is rapidly becoming more and more irrelevant and thanks God for that) should display them fine.
