Zog[edit]

Please advise why you have removed reference to his title being "Skanderbeg III" and "King of the Albanians" both of which there are references for. --Counter-revolutionary (talk) 20:44, 11 August 2013 (UTC)

I'm not really sure what you are referring to. I removed the reference to "Skanderberg III" in the opening sentence, since the appellation is said to have been used only briefly. However it still appears at the top of the Infobox, and (thanks to text added by me) is mentioned and explained later in the text. As to "King of the Albanians", I don't believe I removed that from anywhere; in fact, I made sure that it appeared in full in the opening sentence, which it didn't before my changes. W. P. Uzer (talk) 06:47, 12 August 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for August 28[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Albanian morphology, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Conjugation (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.

Thank you![edit]

I must commend you for your temperate and dispassionate attempts to resolve the issues you are seeking to mediate on Chinese classifier via talk page discussion rather than edit warring. It's editors like you that make Wikipedia a positive and rewarding experience for all! As mentioned in the Village Pump thread, if you have any question regarding implementation of the proposed solution (i.e. implementing CSS styles and hexadecimal colors), please feel free to seek advice on my talk page, as I'm very expert in both HTML and CSS. Happy editing!    DKqwerty    08:25, 16 September 2013 (UTC)

Chinese numerals[edit]

You've recently added to Chinese numerals how Monday, Tuesday, etc would be 星期一, 星期二, etc, however I don't think this would be absolutely definite. It depends on personal preference (or maybe regional differences), but Monday, Tuesday, etc can also be rendered as 周一 周二 all they way up to Sunday, which is 周日 (which interestingly is never written as 周天, unlike 星期天). --benlisquareTCE 10:55, 3 November 2013 (UTC)

Interesting, thanks, do you want to add that to the article? I think it would be worth mentioning in the context, even if it's starting to veer slightly off topic. W. P. Uzer (talk) 11:24, 3 November 2013 (UTC)

December 2013[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Chinese grammar may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "()"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

Bristol Bus Boycott 'busses' pluralisation[edit]

no, sorry, I'm afraid you couldn't be much more wrong about 'busses' being American; I am English, and personally consider myself quite a purist on grammar and Americanisms, so no, it's not at all just the Americanised plural

Peter13542 (talk) 00:22, 15 December 2013 (UTC)

Can I just ask: are you yourself British or American?

Arbcom elections[edit]

I read your concerns about the abstain option, but haven't yet been convinced. Can you identify a scenario in which an abstain for a candidate affects the outcome? I take it as obvious that if you were initially planning to support (or oppose), then clicked on abstain, then the outcome would differ from your initial plan, but I'm trying to imagine a scenario in which a decision to, say Abstain on Candidate B would increase or decrease the likelihood that B is elected.--S Philbrick(Talk) 18:19, 17 December 2013 (UTC)

Twin cities[edit]

Hi, I see you reverted the removal of one of these sections. Could you explain how twin cities are at all significant in a summary article of a city? Do residents of a city actually know what these twin cities are? I doubt it. Usually they're just for a few junket trips by local politicians, that's all. I note also the size ... Tony (talk) 10:23, 25 February 2014 (UTC)

I didn't revert anything, I just left a query with the person who was doing it. W. P. Uzer (talk) 15:10, 25 February 2014 (UTC)

Old Style and New Style dates[edit]

Hi W. P. Uzer!

I've seen your edits to this artice. I think your second edit actually confuses the intended meaning of the sentence, which is that the phrases (OS and NS) are used to indicate one of two things. The construction "are used... to indicate either whether... or whether..." sounds really awkward to me and obscures the original meaning. I see nothing wromg with the original construction "are used... to indicate either that... or that..."

Your first edit (about the Battle of Hasting) I agree with entirely. Mike Spathaky (talk) 23:45, 8 March 2014 (UTC)

April 2014[edit]

Information icon Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you tried to give Heartbleed (disambiguation) a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into another page with a different name. This is known as a "cut-and-paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is legally required for attribution. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.

In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page (the tab may be hidden in a dropdown menu for you). This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other pages that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Cut-and-paste-move repair holding pen. see Talk:Heartbleed (disambiguation) Widefox; talk 08:39, 10 April 2014 (UTC)
