RE: Doki Doki Panic[edit]

Just in case you don't see my talk page, yes, I would be very interested in knowing more about the dump. :) FamicomJL 20:25, 18 December 2006 (UTC)

I'm not always on wikipedia, so any info you find can be sent to my e-mail at FamicomJL @ Famicomworld . com

Thanks[edit]

Hello Xensyria. I just wanted to say thank you for being so thorough in all that you are doing regarding the film and TV programs named Empire. Lots of editors might move a page but not everyone takes the time to fix the redirects. You are also doing well in working with the disambig page etc. Thanks again and happy editing.

Hi![edit]

I liked your editions to Asimov articles I created. --Againme (talk) 00:08, 11 May 2012 (UTC)

DISPLAYTITLE[edit]

Just a reminder that the magic word DISPLAYTITLE is correctly rendered in upper case, without spaces, and followed by a colon - for example, {{DISPLAYTITLE:List of ships in the ''Matrix'' series}}, not {{Display title|List of ships in the ''Matrix'' series}}. — Paul A (talk) 02:36, 11 May 2012 (UTC)

Timestamp to allow archiving[edit]

"removing full stop to allow archiving", you said in edit summary at WP:Novels recently.

Do you know precisely what is needed in a handmade signature to allow archiving? Is it a paragraph that ends with "dd mmm yyyy (UTC)"? Many times I have cut and paste from the edit history. Exhibit: Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Children's literature#Input sought. Belatedly this week it occurred to me that something more specific may be needed --when I don't reply and add my own current signature. --P64 (talk) 16:36, 13 June 2012 (UTC)

I don't know the specifics of what the Miszabots use, but the
  • {{undated | (date and time with "(UTC)")}}
  • and {{unsigned | (username) | (date and time with "(UTC)") }}
  • or {{unsigned2 | (date and time with "(UTC)") | (username) }} for easy use with copy and pasting
templates are designed for what you're asking. At the moment it doesn't look as if the archive bot correctly identifies the first one, but this should be fixed at some point, so these templates are still the preferred option, even before it's been fixed. --xensyriaT 22:28, 13 June 2012 (UTC)
Thanks and good night. --P64 (talk) 23:23, 13 June 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for answering my call for help on The Matrix article[edit]

Thanks you, Xen. Glad to have you with us. There are things that needs doing in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:The_Matrix on the to-do list. The article mainly needs expansion in shorter sections that are only one or two paragraphs long, namely, Casting, Pre-production, Filming, and Music. I've been trying to find sources for unsourced statements, but I can only find so much online. Those statements are now hidden in hidden comments. You can see where to find them on to-do list. More sources for those statements will be appreciated. Physical, offline sources are most welcome, since I have no access to English non-fiction books, but I don't mind anything as long as they're reliable. But since I've been trying to get find sources to cover unsourced parts, may I ask you not to un-hide them before we can find sources for them? I loathe to see [citation needed] tags, which are instant fail for GA. In the worst case, if we can't find the sources, we can just hide the statements away and submit what we have for GA evaluation. Looking forward to your contributions. Regards, Anthonydraco (talk) 09:52, 31 December 2012 (UTC)

Family tree[edit]

Yes, I got the impression that you thought it would "hang" at the right, like an inbox. Unfortunately it just appeared as a long bunch of boxes, pushing the article itself off the screen. The alteration you have now improves things, but it still seems to leave a very odd looking text. Im afraid I'm no good at the creation of these things. I can't do the coding. Ideally, I guess it should look something like the "Six Islamic Prophets" I've appended to this section. Hoenestly, I'd improve it myself if I could. I'm just hopeless at such things. Paul B (talk) 16:35, 9 July 2013 (UTC)

Replied on your talk page. --xensyriaT 17:49, 9 July 2013 (UTC)
Yes, that looks a lot better. It still seems really big for many articles that are so tiny, but that may bve a reason to expand some of them if possible. Paul B (talk) 18:50, 9 July 2013 (UTC)

Hello again, I've been trying to improve these articles on the Geoffreyian kings. I noticed an inconsistency between the succession boxes and your template. Jago of Britain (Iago) appears to be missing. He is mentioned by Geoffrey, though you'd miss him if you blinked [1]. Paul B (talk) 13:50, 11 July 2013 (UTC)

Thanks, and good spot! I've now added Jago. I suppose he was missed out originally as it's not clear exactly who his parent was in relation to Gurgustius, whether his brother, sister, brother-in-law or sister-in-law. And heaven help me; it's not my template! I tried to go through and standardise all the kings' succession boxes a few months ago (I never knew quite how many there were that he wrote about!) and fixed whatever else I noticed at the time. I dimly seem to remember noticing that there was an early king that wasn't a descendant of Brutus, but you're right that Jago should be in there. Cheers for the other edits I've noticed too (and all the ones I haven't), and all the best. --xensyriaT 14:55, 11 July 2013 (UTC)

A thorough thumbs up[edit]

The sun never sets

Xensyria, while I realize some people don't take compliments all too seriously, I'm willing to take my chances here. I deeply appreciate your comments at the monarch-emperor TFD discussion. Your awareness of there being worlds apart from Western Europe and its satellites is refreshing in a community of persons that apparently thinks His Majesty is some sort of universal descriptor. If there were an intercultural awareness barnstar, I'd award it to you. But, for now, I offer this "sun never sets" graphic and my gratitude. Blurpeace 04:21, 30 July 2013 (UTC)

Thanks; it was quite depressing to read someone say "I have no idea what you are talking about" to what you said, especially since Wikipedia's potential and ideals are so high. And thanks too for the pic; from what I've heard the eagle's eyes have turned into prisms since then, but they say the dragon that's outgrowing it to its west is at least as inward looking! Good old human nature, eh? --xensyriaT 18:24, 30 July 2013 (UTC)

Thank you, helpful user who places peace above all, for quality contributions to articles such as The King of the Cats, for gnomish corrections of family trees and succession, for being open to requests for little improvements, as {{infobox book}}, - you are an awesome Wikipedian!

Hi Xensyria,

Thank you very much for so readily addressing my concerns regarding "Infobox book". I have reformatted the When God Writes Your Love Story infobox with the new parameters with respect to the publishers.

Hyphen/endash on Biodiversity[edit]

Hi, here you correctly changed some hyphens to endashes in page/year/percentage ranges. However, you also incorrectly changed some endashes in YYYY-MM-DD format dates to endashes; this has put the page in Category:CS1 errors: dates. Please confirm that you understand the YYYY-MM-DD changes to be incorrect per MOS:DATE/MOS:DASH and put them back? Thanks Rjwilmsi 15:13, 24 November 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for pointing that out – replacing the hyphens on those dates was a mistake, and I've now corrected it as you requested. Normally when I see a misplaced hyphen in an article I'll correct it, and sometimes I'll check if there are any more in the article, but it looks like in this case I lost concentration with all the page number hyphens in citations (and luckily gave up half-way through). ‑‑xensyriaT 00:13, 25 November 2013 (UTC)

Typography[edit]

Hey there. We've implemented a temporary fix for users on XP or Windows 7 who might have been having issues. Can you do a hard refresh and see if it's any better on English Wikipedia? Steven Walling (WMF) • talk 01:47, 5 April 2014 (UTC)

@Steven (WMF): Cheers for the fix, and taking the time to listen and reply; it's much appreciated. The body text is now at least as good as it was originally for me (and is it just me or has the irritation of superscript increasing the leading above a line been fixed too?), so I don't mind putting up with the still quite dodgy section headers. Will you be seeking community-wide discussion on any further major changes to typography? ‑‑xensyriaT 14:55, 5 April 2014 (UTC)

Sorry for the delay! I will modify the script in order to move out this kind of template and create a list of other template included inside a wikilink (in order to study a solution). Thank you for pointing it out! -- Basilicofresco (msg) 07:10, 31 October 2014 (UTC)
