Thanks for your work on the articles about the Transit of Venus—that work puts the encyclopedia in great shape for 2117! The historic second TFA was also a great result. Johnuniq (talk) 00:45, 9 June 2012 (UTC)

Vandalism Warnings[edit]

Warning templates
PageName is optional

See additional templates and examples of output

Note: Do not use these templates in content disputes; instead, write a clear message explaining your disagreement.

There are several templates used to warn vandals. They are listed at right according to the nature and severity of the vandalism. Though some people vandalizing are incorrigible returning vandals and may be blocked quickly, others can be stopped by a simple warning and go on to become productive contributors. If you are not certain that an edit is vandalism, always start with {{subst:uw-test1}}. Conversely, if you are confident that a user is aware of the disruption they are causing, you may start with a stronger warning such as {{subst:uw-vandalism2}} or {{subst:uw-vandalism3}}.

For a full list of user warning templates, see Wikipedia:Template messages/User talk namespace.

For persistent vandals see: Wikipedia:Administrator intervention against vandalism

Tags documentation

As a courtesy to other editors and as a means of respecting their time, and also as a means of maximizing the likelihood that your concerns will be addressed, you should initiate a talk section detailing your concerns when hanging any maintenance tag. Without such explanations, it may be difficult for editors to understand what concerned you and to figure out whether subsequent changes have addressed your concerns...If you do not explain your concerns on the article's talk page, you may expect this tag to be promptly and justifiably removed as "unexplained" by the first editor who happens to not understand why you added this tag.

Prize for the longest and most unintelligible sentence[edit]

From the Acorus calamus article:

The first Chinese source to mention the plant is the 神農本草經 (Shennong Bencao Jing), thought to have been written anywhere between 200BC to 200AD (attributed to Shennong, a legendary demi-god, who is said to have written it in 2737BC, but first mentioned in the 七錄 (Qilu) catalogue written 502-557AD by 阮孝緒 (Ruan Xiaoxu), and complied and expanded in the same period (some claim 492AD) by 陶弘景 (Tao Hongjing) as the 本草經集注 (Bencaojing Jizhu), which was itself lost and reconstructed by Sun Xingyan (孫星椼, 1753–1818)).

So when was it first mentioned?
