Junk text being added[edit]

Just noticed a few of you edits are adding the junk text "QuickiWiki Look Up" to the bottom of articles. This might be caused by a browser extension or plugin. See for example [1] --Salix (talk): 19:10, 9 April 2013 (UTC)

October 2013[edit]

Information icon Please do not use styles that are unusual, inappropriate or difficult to understand in articles. There is a Manual of Style, and edits should not deliberately go against it without special reason. Thank you. We do not simplify articles like that, your formatting changes are awkward, plus the actual article is called Mobile phone form factor, I've never used the term "style" used in this context ViperSnake151  Talk  14:49, 21 October 2013 (UTC)

Form factor[edit]

Hello there! Please, let's discuss the issues with editing out "form factor" as a term. If might be gramatically incorrect, but it is used in many places around Wikipedia and elsewhere — please have a look at articles Computer form factor, Harddrive#Form factors, Disc form factors#Form factors, Form factor (mobile phones), Small form factor etc. Editing it out in one place would just create a confusion, and "configuration" isn't such a great replacement IMHO.

Thoughts? Please, let's discuss. Thank you. -- Dsimic (talk) 17:52, 5 November 2013 (UTC)

Changing restrictive relative pronouns "that" to descriptive relative pronoun "which"[edit]

Hi, I'm sure you've made the edits to Asynchronous Transfer Mode, DNS spoofing, and Digital subscriber line access multiplexer and a number of others that I aren’t bothered about, in good faith. However, there is a difference between the restrictive and descriptive relative pronouns and the way they should be used. Basically, you need a comma before a descriptive relative pronoun and not before a restrictive one, and many of us, but not all, habitually use “that” for the restrictive and “which” for the descriptive. So your changes, in this regard, look, at least arguably, like a bit of a crusade to reverse that policy, or worse still, vandalism. Fowler's Modern English Usage (pages 634 to 640, in the 2002 reprint of the 1st ed.) should be of some help on this subject.

There may be some merit in the removal of some of the “that”s, as being wordy. But I’m not sorting through those. So I’ve just reverted the edits.

Graham.Fountain | Talk 16:30, 28 March 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the thanks, and you're welcome.

Was just thinking about stuff, and I thought, the nearest I ever got to New York New York was seeing the New York Dolls when they played York University : the story at the time was that it wasn't on the schedule, but the band insisted, because they felt there was/should be some connection between York and New York. Must have been sometime in the early-mid 1970s. I'm struggling to remember where abouts it was on campus (slept since then), but think it might've been Derwent Collage Dining hall. But then much of the 70s is fuzzy - if you remember it well, you weren't really there.

A+E Networks[edit]

UNOwenNYC: "Whoever 'fixed' this prior to me, MUST've either come from another planet or hasn't YET been born. Those are the ONLY EXPLANATIONS I can come up with to explain how someone can - in the SAME PARAGRAPH (!?!) in which the name of the WELL- KNOWN channel..."

A+E stands for the A+E Networks (the company) as opposed to the A&E (TV channel) that was also called A&E Network at one point. So, you need to check what you are doing and insult some one for your error and have that same such person come back and correct your mistake. --Spshu (talk) 19:54, 1 August 2014 (UTC)

Warning icon Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to vandalize Wikipedia, as you did at The Time Machine (1960 film), you may be blocked from editing. Per previous notifications in edit summaries and on IP talk page, the formatting is non-standard and unacceptable. Text should flow in long paragraphs, not be interrupted every sentence or two.

You have been blocked temporarily from editing for edit warring. Once the block has expired, you are welcome to make useful contributions. If you think there are good reasons why you should be unblocked, you may appeal this block by adding the following text below this notice: {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}}. However, you should read the guide to appealing blocks first.

During a dispute, you should first try to discuss controversial changes and seek consensus. If that proves unsuccessful, you are encouraged to seek dispute resolution, and in some cases it may be appropriate to request page protection.

UN Owen[edit]

RE: UN Owen: Ooooooh. I am scared. I shouldn't accept any invitations to any remote islands from old acquaintances, I guess. Good one. Are you Ulick Norman or Una Nancy? Yours, Quis separabit? 21:16, 25 March 2015 (UTC)

It took me a minute to figure out what you were getting at. I think it also includes beautiful isolated hotels in the Iranian desert (1974), or mountain-top estates (1965).

Yeah but those were crappy remakes of the original film, which was heavily sanitized anyway. Quis separabit? 21:49, 25 March 2015 (UTC)

You do know what the original title was, I assume. Also - and only because you 'piqued my interest' in seeing 'my films (heh-heh), I'm on YouTube, and they've a few of them, on - including a Russian version (English subs), which several people are saying it's 'the best.'

Not gonna watch it tonight. Every night - after I take my sleeping meds (chronic insomnia), I curl up, and watch an 'off the beaten path' film; tonight, it's Stalker (a Russian film, by the man who made the original Solaris (beats the G. Clooney version by a mile - so, what else is new?) and, then - if I'm still awake, I watch an episode of one of my top 3 fave TV series - Danger Man.

There have been numerous films made. Of course, I know the original title -- it's included in the And Then There Were None article, and why it can never be used again. I actually just used Ten Little Indians in my opening comment to you, "RE: UN Owen:" because it was faster (only three words, instead of five), but in the long run I haven't saved any time anyway. LOL. Quis separabit? 23:33, 25 March 2015 (UTC)
