Semi-protected edit request on 2 March 2020[edit]

Apologies-- I wasn't trying to be obnoxious-- I was self-admittedly unclear on where I ought to be. For what it's worth, a URL and polite response would be a lovely way to greet a new community member who's just having some trouble, in the future. Wikiwikibamjay (talk) 23:35, 30 March 2020 (UTC)

Something like [1] is more what I'd expect. I apologize for the mistake, and am just now getting acquainted with the formatting, methodology, and overall process of being involved. I do thank you for removing what was effectively unintentional wiki graffiti, though it is frustrating that it was in no way accompanied by any attempt to inform. In any case, I hope you're keeping healthy, with the state of the world right now. Stay safe; take care. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Wikiwikibamjay (talkcontribs) 23:58, 30 March 2020 (UTC)


{{help definition}}[edit]

To help newsbies to understand a word used in the help: or Wikipedia: namespace, but that has no definition in a regular wikipedia article page.

Imagine, I do not know (I am a newbie) what edit pane is. The editor, could put in a link using {{help definition|edit pane}}. The templat would link to a new page called help:glossary or similar. And exactly, (thanks to the positional parameter with the value "edit pane") to hep:glossary#edit pane. Edit pane is not a section in the page, only and anchored definition in the glossary page. In a similar way to d:Wikidata:Glossary. No redirect page needed. No namespace change needed. I think is a good solution (and similarly functioning in Wikidata). I think our duty as "Help:People" is to support the newbies as much as we can. BoldLuis (talk) 21:47, 19 May 2020 (UTC)

Upload Wizard[edit]

Where should this point? BessieMaelstrom (talk) 11:35, 21 May 2020 (UTC)

@BessieMaelstrom: I've updated the broken link to match the "Upload file" link on the left sidebar. -- John of Reading (talk) 12:07, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
@John of Reading:Thanks, John. I'd have thought of that except my brain is less engaged than yours today. I join the people of Reading in being grateful for you. BessieMaelstrom (talk) 12:19, 21 May 2020 (UTC)

Village Pump: Clarifying common practice ref inclusion[edit]

FYI I've posted a three-part interconnected proposal for this page and two others, at the Village Pump in the Policy section: Clarifying common practice ref inclusion. -- BessieMaelstrom (talk) 14:10, 22 May 2020 (UTC)
