Hey hey hey!

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) 22:21, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

Flatiron Building[edit]

Really? They used the Flatiron as a stand in for City Hall?? That's bizarre because they don't have any resemblence in the least, on being a long squat ornate building and the other a tall thin relatively spartan one. Or do you mean that they used the exterior as a kind of ciy government office building? I never watched the program, so I really can't fathom how they would have used it, or whythey didn't use stock footage or newly-shot exteriors of the real City Hall.

No, they didn’t indicate that the Flatiron building was City Hall, they just unintentionally made it seem like that to viewers who are not intimately familiar with New York City.
The section mentions that various shows used shots of the Flatiron building in scene transitions, that is shots between scenes. On Spin City, they used shots of the Flatiron building between scenes very often (several times per episode).
Because most shows use establishing shots of the location in which the show takes place for scene transitions (for example on Friends or Seinfeld they show shots of the buildings they live in), and because Spin City used shots of the Flatiron building so often, it is easy for anyone who does not know where the NYC City Hall actually is to become under the impression that the Flatiron building is it.

Ah, so they were using the Flatiron as a kind of generic signpost saying "We're here in New York City", but did it so often that, in context, it seemed like it related to the subject matter/story line of the series. I actually noticed that after 9/11, the Flatiron Building got a lot more play as an iconic NYC structure, especially in commercials. Since I live in the area, I got used to seeing my neighborhood pretty frequently on TV. Best, Beyond My Ken (talk) 04:40, 25 August 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for April 25[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Borg (Star Trek), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Replicators (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.
