Is there a reason for the requested change? π♂101 (talk) 02:13, 3 May 2015 (UTC)

"Hover over curly braces" does not work[edit]

Hovering over the curly braces only produces a tooltip showing the unhelpful "please use subst". (Related issue: an editor may mistakenly hover over the link, which shows something else again in a tooltip.)--greenrd (talk) 08:47, 3 May 2015 (UTC)

Hover over the braces themselves, not the text that's between them. (It is kind of weird and inconvenient, I'll admit that.) — Jeraphine Gryphon (talk) 09:38, 3 May 2015 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 4 May 2015[edit]

Add Category:WikiProject History Merge, which was recently created. 103.6.156.167 (talk) 09:48, 4 May 2015 (UTC) 103.6.156.167 (talk) 09:48, 4 May 2015 (UTC)

It doesn't seem to be relevant to this page. — Jeraphine Gryphon (talk) 10:36, 4 May 2015 (UTC)

@Jeraphine Gryphon: It is relevant. The user warning is used for those who perform cut and paste moves, which WikiProject History Merge aims to fix. 103.6.156.167 (talk) 16:18, 6 May 2015 (UTC)

What exactly do you want added and where? Which "user warning" are you talking about? You linked to a category. — Jeraphine Gryphon (talk) 16:50, 6 May 2015 (UTC)

Proposal for Uw-block; noemail=yes[edit]

You know what this means; The message will notify the blocked person they can't send emails to other users. And even further, it's compatible with notalk.

The test is at User:Zeke Essiestudy/uw-block-emd-tpd.

"affiliated with" in Template:Uw-coi[edit]

COI is not limited to being "affiliated with" something - one can also be in a dispute with a person, institution, or company, and that too constitutes a COI. Examples here and this COIN case, which was brought by someone who was in a RW dispute with another user and tried to use COIN to attack the other user. I suggest changing this to "have an external relationship with" to be more broad - this also follows the language in WP:COI. I boldly made the change. Happy to discuss.

Proposed language change[edit]

I want to change the warning language so that it does not insist that editor who leaves the warning is the same one who reverted the edit. I sometimes leave warnings in these cases where another editor reverted the vandalism. I'm sure it's quibbling, but I want the language to be correct and not introduce the chance for any confusion.

current
" I wanted to let you know that I undid one or more of your recent contributions to article name because it did not appear constructive."

proposed
" I wanted to let you know that one or more of your recent contributions to article name have been reverted because it did not appear constructive."
" I wanted to let you know that one or more of your recent contributions to article name have been undone because they did not appear constructive."

Any objections/improvements? --Hobbes Goodyear (talk) 16:24, 25 May 2015 (UTC)

If you make this change, I would say "have been undone" to avoid WP:JARGON. --Ahecht (TALK

Agreed. Updated proposal. Also changed "it did" to "they did".--Hobbes Goodyear (talk) 22:38, 26 May 2015 (UTC)
BTW, I strongly support this proposal – I often desire to leave templates for reversions that other editors have done, but have sometimes not bothered because of the "...so I have reverted undone it..." language used in some of these templates. The best solution might be if there were two versions of these templates: one with the "...so I have undone it..." language in tact, and a second version as you describe that could perhaps be triggered with some sort of parameter (I dunno, like "{{subst:uw-vandalism2|List of metro systems|me=no}}" or something to trigger your revised, non-first-person version of the text...). --IJBall (talk) 03:58, 27 May 2015 (UTC)

Shortcut to directly link to the "Levels" section?[edit]

I'm thinking it might be a good idea to create an anchor and 'shortcut' directly to the 'Levels' section of this article. Maybe using "WP:UWLEVELS" as the shortcut?... Does anyone have any objection to this? Or suggestions? (P.S. I know what "WP:UWUL" is stands for, but what is "WP:UWLS" short for?! Or am I just being thick here?...) TIA. --IJBall (talk) 03:51, 27 May 2015 (UTC)
