Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference[edit]

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and you will still be able to manually mark your edits as being 'minor'. The only thing that's changed is that you will no longer have them marked as minor by default.

For established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. If you are familiar with the contents of WP:MINOR, and believe that it is still beneficial to the encyclopedia to have all your edits marked as such by default, then this discussion will give you the details you need to continue with this functionality indefinitely. If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 16:52, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

The FOUC compulsion[edit]

Greetings, SaltLakeJohn!
Thank you for your suggestions on the Flash of Unstyled Content article talk page e.g. Paul Irish, Steve S.'s blog etc. I will try to work them in, if I can. I'm stopping by today mostly to tell you that somehow, FoUC, or FOUC (?) has become stuck in my working memory. I (like you mentioned about yourself, in the talk page), continue to notice occasional references to it which captivate my interest. So you are NOT the only one! I lol'd when I read your notes on the talk page, with smaller typeface and maybe underlined, written in 2011 perhaps? I will try to ask someone, somewhere about FOUC, and get some ideas for incorporating the FOUC article via WikiLink with another article, as it is an orphan at present, thus vulnerable. And I wouldn't want it to be excised from WP ;o) --FeralOink (talk) 19:21, 24 October 2012 (UTC)
