Mo. House of Reps[edit]

Hi there. I appreciate your recent cleanup efforts & maintenance to the Missouri House of Representatives Wiki, but if you don't mind please remember to leave some sort of brief edit summary when you perform actions. After long bitter experience, whenever I see an IP user thats been editing w/o any sort of summary it triggers a Pavlovian "vandalizer hunt" reflex in me. LOL. Much thanks and have a great Wiki kinda day! Sector001 (talk) 08:38, 22 May 2012 (UTC)

Notre Dame Fighting Irish football navbox[edit]

Thanks for your edits on Template:Notre Dame Fighting Irish football navbox to cleanup the coding. I wasn't trying to edit war, but rather trying to keep the formatting of the title consistent with the other college football team navboxes. All the best, Jweiss11 (talk) 04:55, 8 August 2012 (UTC)

Re:Category:Unassessed football in India articles[edit]

Hm, I dont understand what you were asking/saying there. If you could clear it then that would be amazing. Cheers. --Arsenalkid700 (talk) 22:43, 10 November 2012 (UTC)

Oh ya. Its been a while since I did those. Ya, I was going to do them but I got side-tracked and must have forgotten them. I shall fix them. Cheers and thank you for bringing them to my attention. --Arsenalkid700 (talk) 22:49, 10 November 2012 (UTC)

Jonathan Winters cites/sources[edit]

Thanks for formatting these correctly. I admit I hate fixing cites and have added more. I usually leave them as [ ] so people can view them easily and if disputed can be simply removed, etc. Again, I appreciate it! :) (talk) 05:44, 19 April 2013 (UTC)

Okay, sorry. I'll try the other IP. —Anne Delong (talk) 22:04, 18 August 2013 (UTC)

FoCuSandLeArN, wasn't me, I never submitted that article. (talk) 00:17, 11 September 2013 (UTC)
Hmmm...must be the same IP. But then, how did that IP submit the article, if it requires registration? Bizarre! FoCuSandLeArN (talk) 19:58, 11 September 2013 (UTC)


I see you're doing a lot of adjustments of columns. Please bear in mind that when the resulting columns are far apart from each other, they don't visually cohere as a single list, but look like separate things. It's best to keep the columns far enough apart to be easily readable, but close enough together to be seen as one list. Thanks, Beyond My Ken (talk) 03:40, 18 October 2013 (UTC)

yes, and you can set the width using colwidth= with {{columns-list}} or gap= with {{col-break}}, but avoid breaking lists per WP:LISTGAP. (talk) 03:42, 18 October 2013 (UTC)
You should go back and adjust the lists you've changed into widely separated columns, as they are not really helpful to the reader. Beyond My Ken (talk) 03:49, 18 October 2013 (UTC)
I note that you are not helping to fix your edits, but have continued to make these changes which are detrimental to the articles, so I will be rolling back your edits as of now. Beyond My Ken (talk) 04:00, 18 October 2013 (UTC)
OK, I have rolled back all of your column edits. Please do not re-instate them, as that will force me to bring your edits to the attention of an admin, and could result in your being blocked from editing.

I have absolutely no problem if you want to use a different methodology which results in a column layout such as I described above: columns that are close enough together to be seen as one list. I am not "married" to the method I used, and, in fact, when I come across them, I've been taking out the "nb10" spacers and add "gap=4em" to the "col-break"s - so if you want to do that, be my guest. Any other method which results in the same thing is fine, but not a method which separates the two columns as yours was doing. Sorry about that. Beyond My Ken (talk) 04:08, 18 October 2013 (UTC)

no, I don't think you are sorry, I forgot that you WP:OWN the articles and are unable to read WP:LISTGAP. (talk) 04:59, 18 October 2013 (UTC)
Do not restore. Next stop - a block for you. Beyond My Ken (talk) 05:02, 18 October 2013 (UTC)
yes, take it to WP:ANI, when was your last block? (talk) 05:03, 18 October 2013 (UTC)
You need to re-read WP:LISTGAP, which does not support what you are doing. If you object to the "nb" spacers, I can understand that, since screen readers don't like it, but the answer to that (as I said above) is to remove the spacer and add the "gap" parameter to the "col-break" template. Beyond My Ken (talk) 05:16, 18 October 2013 (UTC)
by breaking a list with {{col-break}} you are splitting a single list into two lists. there is no reason for a single list to be split. (talk) 05:18, 18 October 2013 (UTC)
Yes, there is, when the list is creating unnecessary white space. Please, your edits are not supported by Wikipedia standards, please stop. Beyond My Ken (talk) 05:24, 18 October 2013 (UTC)
Please see the discussion on User talk:Dennis Brown. You have misread WP:LISTGAP, which says nothing whatsoever about not using "col-break", only about not putting blank lines between list items. That is what it means by greating a gap in a list. Please take a closer look at the guideline, and stop reverting my edits. Beyond My Ken (talk) 05:34, 18 October 2013 (UTC)
a {{col-break}} splits the list into two lists. it's the same situation. hopefully someone else can explain this to you in a way that you can understand. (talk) 05:36, 18 October 2013 (UTC)
For your convenience here is the entire text of WP:LISTGAP:

Do not separate list items, including items in a definition list (a list made with leading semicolons and colons) or an unordered list, by leaving blank lines between them, since this causes MediaWiki to end one list and start a new one. This results in screen readers announcing multiple lists when only one was intended. Lists are meant to group elements that belong together, and breaking these groups will mislead and confuse a screen-reader user. Improper formatting can also more than triple the length of time it takes to read the list.

Do you see what it says? "Do not separate list items ... by leaving blank lines between them..." That is all this guideline is saying, the sum total of its advice. It does not say not to use "col-break", and would not be accepted if it did. Beyond My Ken (talk) 05:42, 18 October 2013 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── I note that in a bunch of your most recent edits (beginning at 1:19 with your edit to Sullivan County, New York), you're using the "col-break" with "gap=" method I suggested -- so why do you continue to argue here and on User talk:Dennis Brown that "col-break" should not be used?

Matterhorn citation removal[edit]

Your removal of the citation template does not make any sense. Explain. RedWolf (talk) 16:06, 22 March 2014 (UTC)

@RedWolf: Yes, let's examine what was so completely wrong with your edit here. (1) Why did you add {{de}}? That template does not exist, and the article in question is in ITALIAN, not GERMAN. (2) Why did you add {{cita web}}? Here at the English Language Wikipedia, we use {{cite web}}, but only if we have a title for the article. This is why in your version, there is a glaring red error for reference 33. Hopefully, this was a learning experience for you, and you won't make the same mistakes in the future.
