Bishops in South Africa[edit]

Hi - thank you for your recent efforts with "Short descriptions" for various Southern African Bishops. I am wondering whether for most of them "Anglican bishop" might not serve best. George Knight-Bruce is characterised as such but his successor William Thomas Gaul is "Irish bishop". Edward Crowther is given as "South African bishop" but might equally be "British bishop" (as Wilfrid Gore Browne is described) or "American bishop". They were all bishops in South or Southern Africa, but would not "Anglican bishop" be best, given their potential for serving elsewhere in the Anglican Communion (as have Crowther and others)? All the best. Blarcrean (talk) 04:42, 10 February 2014 (UTC)

Simon Beveridge[edit]

Hi, i did a roll back of mentioned article for various attempts of vandalism, but inbetween you had used AWB (I am not sure yet what that means but it was good, likely some automated funcitonality) that was therefore also (i take it) rolled back. I just wanted to tell you, this was about a space inbetween "citenews" and "cite news" inside the article's references. What is AWB? Poepkop (talk) 14:19, 14 February 2014 (UTC)

Hi, and thanks for your work on the English Wikipedia.

I noticed you worked on this article:

Just a short note to point out that we don’t normally link:

  • dates
  • years
  • commonly known geographical terms (including well-known country-names), and
  • common terms you’d look up in a dictionary (unless significantly technical).

(This even applies for infoboxes.)

Thanks and my best wishes.

WikiSnap Challenge[edit]

Hello Waacstats:

Wikipedia is holding a contest called the WikiSnap Challenge
The goal of this drive is to eliminate poor stub articles with not so much as a picture or info box. The contest starts on the 3rd of April and continues until a winner is declared.

Awards will be given out for all participating in the drive in the form of barnstars at the end of the contest.

Thanks. Fremantle99 (talk) 07:45, 21 March 2014 (UTC)

I don't know too much about templates or AWB, but after your edit, I noticed something I thought was an error. I don't know how AWB works but I think I fixed the template problem. Could you tell me if I did?  —Mysterytrey 01:20, 27 March 2014 (UTC)

Reversion of changes on Ayub K Ommaya[edit]

Helo, dear user Waacstats. I see you have also reverted a number of my basic edits to the article on Ayub K. Ommaya. Might I know why please? I have made these in full good faith and am well aware of the family and the original/real name of Dr Ayub Khan Bamba (later Ayub Ommaya) and have served in the army with his elder brother Brig Jan Nadir Khan. I think my edits were quite justified. I hope you will please not revert these again, thanks. (talk) 18:41, 12 April 2014 (UTC)Col (r) Mumtaz Khan, Pakistan

It wasn't me who reverted your edits. Waacstats (talk) 18:47, 12 April 2014 (UTC)

Charles Czeisler[edit]

Hi. You just added American physician to the Charles Czeisler article with edit summary "add persondata short description using AWB." I think that American sleep researcher would be better; that's what he is known for. Thanks. --Hordaland (talk) 20:25, 14 April 2014 (UTC)

Wow, you're quick! Thanks. --Hordaland (talk) 20:31, 14 April 2014 (UTC)

reverting deletion[edit]

I reverted your edit to Military career of Audie Murphy. You deleted the persondata while using AWB. I don't have access to AWB so I couldn't guess what went wrong. Chris Troutman (talk) 17:28, 18 April 2014 (UTC)

nothing went wrong, the article doesn't need the persondata template on it, as long as Audie Murphy has the template. Persondata is supposed to be for articles about people, not their military career. I'll leave the template there for now, but can't guarantee that I wont remove it later. Waacstats (talk) 19:39, 18 April 2014 (UTC)
My mistake. Your edit summary didn't make that clear. I'll remove it. Chris Troutman (talk) 19:50, 18 April 2014 (UTC)
