Is there a way to make all the articles with an infobox link into a category just by having the infobox?? --The Judge 12:04, 6 September 2006 (UTC)

Correction & question[edit]

What is an orphan (in relation to wikipedia)? floodbud talk page

Orphan is a page without links. It is a problem as people who search that concept might make a page with a synonim as they assumed it does not exist. it is quite common. -Squid

Video how-to[edit]

There are no video howtos? The basics on Linux are all on youtube, say. they are for lazy people so are a good mean of comunication.. Just a though. --Squidonius (talk) 14:52, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

See Category:Wikipedia video tutorials. -- Uzma Gamal (talk) 16:45, 28 November 2010 (UTC)

Merging page histories[edit]

I like to write things in a sandbox and then move them over to mainspace later, as I rarely write enough in a single sitting to make a new article upon its initial creation look any good. Now that I have moved it to mainspace, how do I clean up the edit history to accurately reflect all the edits made for this article (and only those edits, not the previous ones on other articles written in the sandbox)?

I recently worked for a group called Working America. They take union dues and are supported by the AFL-CIO. Not only myself, but many people who worked for Working America, were terminated for not reaching a certain quota. That meant that we had to get at least 28 people to talk to us and answer all the questions we asked about who they would vote for in the upcoming election between Mitch McConnell and Allison Grimes. We were promoting Allison Grimes. Not only were we held accountable for how many people would answer their door and talk to us- not under our control- but no one came to check on us when we were out canvassing to see if we were safe, no one came to give us a restroom break. We were expected to ask total strangers to let us in to their homes and use the restroom. Dangerous for us possibly.

When I contacted the local representative for the AFL-CIO, I never received a response. The same with Allison Grimes campaign office and Working Americas headquarters. 

For all their talk of being for the working people, none of them really care or there would be a change. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:35, 3 October 2014 (UTC)
