Quote brackets[edit]

Brackets are mainly use to modify or include new material in a quote. I try to keep bitcoin's capitalization consistent through the article so when Krugman used capital "Bitcoin" to refer to the currency, I modified it to "bitcoin". Out of respect for the author, it's custom to put it in brackets after such a modification. --☥NEO (talk) 00:06, 11 March 2013 (UTC)

That colon did serve a purpose.[edit]

It was used to connect with the words after it and saying ways it's the most popular currency. However, it works as it is. --☥NEO (talk) 00:02, 22 March 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for June 18[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that you've added some links pointing to disambiguation pages. 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.

Article Feedback Tool update[edit]

Hey WikiTryHardDieHard. I'm contacting you because you're involved in the Article Feedback Tool in some way, either as a previous newsletter recipient or as an active user of the system. As you might have heard, a user recently anonymously disabled the feedback tool on 2,000 pages. We were unable to track or prevent this due to the lack of logging feature in AFT5. We're deeply sorry for this, as we know that quite a few users found the software very useful, and were using it on their articles.

We've now re-released the software, with the addition of a logging feature and restrictions on the ability to disable. Obviously, we're not going to automatically re-enable it on each article—we don't want to create a situation where it was enabled by users who have now moved on, and feedback would sit there unattended—but if you're interested in enabling it for your articles, it's pretty simple to do. Just go to the article you want to enable it on, click the "request feedback" link in the toolbox in the sidebar, and AFT5 will be enabled for that article.

Again, we're very sorry about this issue; hopefully it'll be smooth sailing after this :). If you have any questions, just drop them at the talkpage. Thanks! Okeyes (WMF) 21:25, 1 September 2013 (UTC)

Information.svg Hello, and thank you for your recent contributions. I appreciate the effort you made for our project, but unfortunately I had to undo your edit(s) because I believe the article was better before you made that change.

Speedy deletion nomination of Dead Sky[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. This is a notice to inform you that a tag has been placed on Dead Sky requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A3 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an article with no content whatsoever, or whose contents consist only of external links, a "See also" section, book references, category tags, template tags, interwiki links, images, a rephrasing of the title, or an attempt to contact the subject of the article. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. Gloss • talk 18:47, 13 December 2013 (UTC)

List of Open Source Android Applications[edit]

Hello, I know you deleted your message on my talk page but I thought I'd respond anyway. The consensus view that was achieved on the talk page completely rejected the notion that the number of downloads establishes notability. In fact that approach is in no way supported by any Wikipedia policy or guideline. The consensus view is to use the already established Wikipedia definition for notability which is that an article should be created for each app first and then linked to in the article. And that each article needs to supply at least two independent and reliable sources that cover the app in significant detail (i.e., listings of apps or one-paragraph reviews or most personal blog posts do not go toward establishing notability). What we need is substantial coverage in notable sources like Wired or CNet in order to establish notability, then create the article, and then link to it at the List of Open Source Android Applications. SQGibbon (talk) 07:18, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

No problem. The approach to these kinds of articles does vary throughout Wikipedia. Given that this list could stretch literally forever meant that it seemed prudent to use some strict standards, namely the same one used in similar lists on Wikipedia -- general notability. This has the added benefit that any experienced editor patrolling recent changes can quickly see how the page is supposed to operate and can revert or accept any recent change to the article without having to read through the entire talk page to see how we're doing it. That said, the article does need a lot of work and improvement so I hope you'll keep at it. SQGibbon (talk) 19:18, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

Wildland fire apparatus[edit]

So I started the article at User:Zackmann08/Wildland fire engine. I keep going back and forth on the name of the article. But I would welcome any contributions! --Zackmann08 (talk) 01:12, 6 January 2014 (UTC)

That looks good Zack --WikiTryHardDieHard (talk) 03:18, 6 January 2014 (UTC)
So article is done. I would LOVE some peer review/editing. Wildland fire engine. I am going to work on adding some redirects to the page, for example Type 3 fire engine. Thanks! --Zackmann08 (talk) 15:34, 15 January 2014 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Not The Robots[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Not The Robots has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Non-notable game. No evidence of awards, charting or in depth coverage in independent reliable sources.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Category:Wikipedia requested images[edit]

Hi, please don't add Category:Wikipedia requested images directly to talk pages, as you seem to have been doing quite a lot. If the talk page has WikiProject banners, and those banners have suitable parameters, please use those; if not, the {{Image requested}} template should be used. This has some parameters that allow for appropriate subcategorisation. As an example of the former case, I have taken your edit and fixed it like this. --Redrose64 (talk) 09:58, 27 February 2014 (UTC)

I'll do that from now on. Thank you for the information. --WikiTryHardDieHard (talk) 15:25, 27 February 2014 (UTC)

Excessive categories[edit]

Hi, I'm involved in cleanup of the psychology categories. Just wanted to point out that there's no need to put an article in both a category and its subcategory. Psychological concepts can go in the category Psychological concepts, and don't need to be in the Psychology category as well: Psychological concepts is itself categorised under Psychology. If you see me removing some categories from articles you've edited, this is why. Cheers, MartinPoulter (talk) 22:28, 27 March 2014 (UTC)

Yes, the relevant guideline is WP:DIFFUSE. --Redrose64 (talk) 22:44, 27 March 2014 (UTC)
@MartinPoulter:@Redrose64: I understand. Even after all the time I've been on Wikipedia, I still make plenty of mistakes. Thank you both for the information. --WikiTryHardDieHard (talk) 02:25, 28 March 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for removing the categories. Cheers, MartinPoulter (talk) 15:23, 29 March 2014 (UTC)

Thomas Morton[edit]

Hey, thanks for contributing a new article for Wikipedia! Unfortunately I'm worried that it might not meet our inclusion guidelines. As you know, Wikipedia has various guidelines that help establish what articles can be written about, referred to as "notability". The one for Biographies is here: Wikipedia:Notability (people). In simple terms you need to provide sources that talk about the subject in detail, rather than in passing, to build up an overall picture of his career. If you've got any questions I'd be happy to help! --Errant (chat!) 18:58, 14 May 2014 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Verdun (video game)[edit]
