Semi-protected edit request on 17 May 2015[edit]

the web-address in "external links" is to some bull-shit business that has nothing to do with the wiki page (talk) 05:20, 17 May 2015 (UTC)

Red question icon with gradient background.svg Not done: it's not clear what changes you want to be made. Please mention the specific changes in a "change X to Y" format. You have probably posted in the wrong place, as there is no external links section on this page. Please tell us the name of the article where the spam link appears, and we will be happy to remove it.

Can no longer add my own edit summaries[edit]

Hi: I have tried to add my own edit summaries to a couple of articles but am only really allowed to pick from a drop down menu (including some of the ones I usually use); has something changed? I looked at my preferences page but nothing seemed wrong... any help appreciated. Maybe I should log out and log back in? [just tried that last one; no luck] FeanorStar7 — Preceding unsigned comment added by FeanorStar7 (talkcontribs) 11:41, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

What browser/app/device do you use to edit? PrimeHunter (talk) 13:19, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
@FeanorStar7: Do you use Internet Explorer? If so, see Wikipedia:Village pump (technical)/Archive 137#Forced HTTPS and Wikipedia:Village pump (technical)/Archive 138#HTTPS by default. --Redrose64 (talk) 13:28, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
Thank you both for your questions: I generally use Google Chrome but sometimes use Firefox. I edit on a desktop computer. I will look at the village pump links you mentioned; also I tried a complete reboot to see if that would make a difference; it didn't.--FeanorStar7 23:24, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
