HTC One M9[edit]

Hi. I'm not sure why you thought removing material that didn't appear to add anything at all to the article was unconstructive? I explained in the original edit comment. The automatic message left was rather condescending mentioning things like assuming it was a test edit. It was not a test edit. Perhaps you could explain. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.170.189.56 (talk) 19:37, 3 April 2015 (UTC)

Sony Xperia L image file[edit]

I am happy to know that you have found a free alternative, if I am not wrong. Would you please take the time to upload the file on the page or at least upload to Wikimedia.

Thank You.

Edit reverted[edit]

I changed cyrogenic to cryogenic on the Borderlands the Pre Sequel page. Obviously a typo. Why was it changed back to be incorrect?

Note 3[edit]

Hi I was just wondering why my edit of the note 3's maximum expandable storage was removed? By the way this is EllayG,

The Interview[edit]

Ok I removed link and added citation

Input is requested...[edit]

Hello. I've started a discussion at Talk:NFL on CBS#Schedules. It is in reference to the times in the schedules sections of the article. I see you've commented on the talk page before, so I thought I'd ask your opinion. Thanks, Corky | Chat? 22:59, 28 March 2015 (UTC)

Would you approve replacing {{Do not copy to Commons}} with {{subst:ncd}}? Russian law was changed last year, see c:Template:FoP-Russia. --Stefan2 (talk) 21:02, 29 March 2015 (UTC)

Features new to Windows Vista[edit]

Hello, Thank you for your contribution to the Features new to Windows Vista article. Might I inquire why you reverted my edit and labelled it as unnecessary? The text that I added conforms with the Windows Vista trademark guidelines from Microsoft, which state "Never use Windows Vista in the possessive, as in 'Windows Vista's security features are impressive.' Instead write 'The security features of the Windows Vista operating system are impressive.'" (IanWilliam20 (talk) 18:54, 1 April 2015 (UTC))

Sorry[edit]

Hi.

Sorry for the little mishap in Spartan (browser) article. I was aiming for the "Thanks" button when my mouse went off the pad. I ended up clicking on the adjacent button, "rollback (VANDAL)".

Ironically, saying "Thanks" requires a confirmation but calling someone a darned vandal does not!

Very sorry,

RBI[edit]

Could you provide some sort of documentation that states stock ownership equates to being a subsidiary? Because when you use the term parent corporation it infers that the company is part of a larger conglomerate. VCs are never, to my knowledge or experience, considered to be parent companies but instead are simply being partial stock owners in the company they have invested in. --Jeremy (blah blahI did it!) 04:31, 7 April 2015 (UTC)

A couple of useful tools[edit]

Hi.

I wrote the follow regular expressions to help you quickly make improvements to the article sources. As you know, the source editor of Wikipedia has a find and replace function. That function has a "Treat search string as a regular expression" checkbox. Once you check that box, you can use these to quickly make improvements:

1. Replace incorrect |publisher= with |website=
Mainly this problem is caused by Reflinks which puts e.g. "cnet.com" into |publisher=
"Search for" field: \|\s*publisher\s*=\s*([^|]*(?:\.com|\.net|\.org))\s*\|
"Replace with: field: |website=$1 |
Example: [1]
2. Replace a comma-separate |author= with |first= and |last=
"Search for" field: \|[\t\n ]*author[\t\n ]*=[\t\n ]*(\w+),[\t\n ]*(\w+)
"Replace with: field: |last=$1 |first=$2

I will write more advanced forms in the future, maybe even scripts. But don't forget to preview your edits; actually try them without making any other edit in that session (between hitting the Edit source" button and hitting "Save"). And feel free to report back any kink you may discover.

Best regards,

(talk page stalker)@Codename Lisa: If I'm not mistaken, reFill uses the |work= field, not the publisher field. Example (First ref in this edit). EoRdE6(Come Talk to Me!) 22:04, 14 April 2015 (UTC)
reFill does. Reflinks, which is also online, doesn't. Best regards, Codename Lisa (talk) 22:10, 14 April 2015 (UTC)
