Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference
Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have enabled.
On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was
true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to
false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and you will still be able to manually mark your edits as being 'minor'. The only thing that's changed is that you will no longer be able to have them marked as minor by default. For more information on what a minor edit is, see WP:MINOR or feel to get in touch.
You may not be aware, but the Kevin Folta (and all GMO and pesticide related articles) are currently under a one revert restriction per 24 hours per editor (described on the talk page). This is a special sanction from the Arbitration Committee that's different than the normal three revert rule. People can get easily get blocked for reverting more than once. There are others that have violated this that could be brought up for sanctions for breaking this rule, but I haven't had the time (or energy) to pursue that lately. I will start trying to make sure the one revert rule is enforced in the future, so I just wanted to let you know to be wary about it as many editors not aware of it get caught up in trouble over it.

- Thanks for the warning. I did notice the announcement. Trying to keep my reversions to a minimum :) Adrian (talk) 03:44, 24 October 2015 (UTC)
please provide full references
Claims that are referenced only with a url, also called raw links, like you did on Kevin Folta, are subject to WP:link rot. To learn what a full reference is, please check WP:CITEHOW and provide the missing information, including the date of publication.--Wuerzele (talk) 02:00, 29 October 2015 (UTC)
- If you are referring to the few bio pages on Folta, they do not have a publication date since they are either 1) not in a publication, and/or 2) not an article. For those, the only information that can be provided is the accessdate, which can be used to gather an archive if link rot settles. If you are talking about something else, please be more specific.

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Steven Avery, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Today Show (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
