December 2013[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, your addition of one or more external links to the page Special Operations Group of the Tasmania Police has been reverted.
Your edit here to Special Operations Group of the Tasmania Police was reverted by an automated bot that attempts to remove links which are discouraged per our external links guideline. The external link(s) you added or changed ( is/are on my list of links to remove and probably shouldn't be included in Wikipedia. If the external link you inserted or changed was to a media file (e.g. a sound or video file) on an external server, then note that linking to such files may be subject to Wikipedia's copyright policy, as well as other parts of our external links guideline. If the information you linked to is indeed in violation of copyright, then such information should not be linked to. Please consider using our upload facility to upload a suitable media file, or consider linking to the original.
If you were trying to insert an external link that does comply with our policies and guidelines, then please accept my creator's apologies and feel free to undo the bot's revert. However, if the link does not comply with our policies and guidelines, but your edit included other, constructive, changes to the article, feel free to make those changes again without re-adding the link. Please read Wikipedia's external links guideline for more information, and consult my list of frequently-reverted sites. For more information about me, see my FAQ page. Thanks! --XLinkBot (talk) 06:13, 4 December 2013 (UTC)

Backlog limit for Category:Pages with broken reference names?[edit]

You reverted my change of the backlog limit on Category:Pages_with_broken_reference_names, pointing to Category:Pages with citation errors as an explanation. I don't understand what you were getting at; could you clarify further? As it doesn't look like we'll get the deliberate error pages removed from the category any time soon, it does seem worth adjusting the backlog limits to take account of them. Your thoughts? (talk) 23:37, 3 December 2013 (UTC)

@ [1] [2] [3] The backlog limit is just a fictive number, so you could see in Category:Pages with citation errors where to work first. Here use only <!-- --> comment out unused citation. Best wishes --Frze > talk 11:51, 4 December 2013 (UTC)

Backlog status Category:Pages with citation errors[edit]

Backlog status (Purge)
Category Current status

Hope you like it --Frze > talk 22:43, 4 December 2013 (UTC)

Er, I'm still confused, but it's fine. (talk) 22:47, 4 December 2013 (UTC)

Arbitration enforcement warning: Manual of Style and article titles policy[edit]

Commons-emblem-notice.svg Please carefully read the following notice:

This is to inform you that the Arbitration Committee have authorised discretionary sanctions for the English Wikipedia Manual of Style and article titles policy, which you may have edited. The committee's decision can be read here.

Discretionary sanctions are intended to prevent further disruption to a topic which has already been significantly disrupted. In practical terms, this means that uninvolved administrators may impose sanctions for any conduct, within or relating to the topic, which fails to adhere to the purposes of Wikipedia or complies with applicable policies and guidelines. The sanctions may include editing restrictions, topic bans, or blocks. Before making any more edits to this topic area, please familiarise yourself with the discretionary sanctions system as sanctions can be imposed without further warning. Please do not hesitate to contact me or any other editor if you have any questions.

In particular, please do not engage in edit wars, such as you did in November 2013 on Wikipedia:Naming conventions (definite or indefinite article at beginning of name).  Sandstein  12:47, 14 December 2013 (UTC)


Just notify you that I have concluded the discussion on Talk:Scientific_method#Is_peer_review_scientific_method, feel free to add your opinion. -- (talk) 07:16, 16 December 2013 (UTC)
