In response to your feedback[edit]

There is a huge amount of templates, which is difficult to overlook. The templates are also often different in different languages. A rough translation by Google  :-) Ja, je hebt gelijk.

Thank you. As the messagebox showed up in Dutch (because in My preferences Internationalisation/Language is set to Dutch), I completed it in Dutch.--Ajv39 (talk) 14:13, 28 March 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for April 9[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited List of music festivals, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Castelló (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.

Bhanks[edit]

Thank you for helping make Wikipedia a great place. I have looked over past edits and believe that you are someone that is adding to the quality of this site.I added an external link to circuit diagrams since there is a free tool to make them. I am going to add it back. If you have any questions about it feel free to message me on my talk page. Thanks! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bhanks (talkcontribs) 22:06, 15 June 2013 (UTC)

RE: Free trial - they do a terrible job of advertising it but it is free for educators and they also have a fully free version. If you signup with .edu email account, they give you an auto free account. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bhanks (talkcontribs) 00:25, 18 June 2013 (UTC)

With other words: this link is advertising for commercial crippleware. It does not belong in the encyclopaedia. --Ajv39 (talk) 09:50, 22 June 2013 (UTC)

This help request has been answered. If you need more help, you can ask another question on your talk page, contact the responding user(s) directly on their user talk page, or consider visiting the Teahouse.

Could an admin, please, have a look at this link: https://www.lucidchart.com/pages/examples/circuit-diagrams in article Circuit diagram. IMO that is SPAM. See above dispute in subject "Bhanks". --Ajv39 (talk) 09:36, 24 June 2013 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

Nice job cleaning up List of festivals in the United States, the help is appreciated. I love festivals and want Wikipedia to have quality lists and articles on them, but I can't always keep up with the maintenance. Hope you enjoy and can stick around and help some more.

Fixing redirects[edit]

This message is regarding your recent edit TI-Nspire series. I hate to tell you this, as you see to be a productive contributor and it could discourage you from contributing, but please take a look at WP:NOTBROKEN. Although the edits do help Wikipedia somewhat, as they change the link to the direct page instead of the redirect, they are discouraged, for wasting server time and space. Happy editing!

Notability of Festivals[edit]

I have undone the changed to the Austrian list of festivals, as I do not agree with your thought on what is notable. Just because the article has yet to be created does not mean that it is not notable, just that the article may not have been created yet. If that was the definition of notable, the wiki would never go forward; However, to help remedy the situation for this one festival, I have created a stub of an article to start the ball rolling. Please do not take my comments in the wrong way, I do not mean to offend... just to help solve problems. If you take a look at wp:Notability you will notice that notability goes far beyond whether there is an article, but whether there are independent sources and information available. Also, in the instance of the "list" in question, whether there are multiple pages linking to the "red-link festival" in question such as On this page. Take a look and you will see that Wien Modern is mentioned on multiple independent pages. Thanks. speednat (talk) 23:36, 8 September 2014 (UTC)

Your edits to Reciprocating electric motor[edit]

Hi. I wanted to explain my edits after your recent edit to this page. First, you replaced some cases of <space><hyphen><space> with <nbsp><em-dash><space>. Replacing the hyphens with dashes is fine. However, per MOS:DASH, we do not use em-dashes with spaces around them. Either en-dashes with spaces, or em-dashes with no spaces. Since the original material used spaced hyphens, I changed them to spaced en-dashes to preserve the original typist's intended look. Note that the handy template {{snd}} produces the correct <nbsp><en-dash>. Normally one would follow this would an ordinary <space>.

I have also reverted your deletion of some unnecessary spaces-after-periods and of an unnecessary line break. Your edits in these cases did not change the rendered text. Many Wikipedia editors feel that making non-rendering edits is an unnecessary drain both on server resources and (more important) on editors' workload. The faint little yellow rectangles that show the deleted trailing spaces are tough to spot. As for the newlines, a significant fraction of editors (including myself) prefer to hit return after each sentence, or even between lengthy clauses. This breaks up what would otherwise be a "wall of text" in the edit window, making editing easier. I want to stress, though, that unlike the dash issue this is purely a personal preference and there is no official "guideline" that says "don't add unnecessary newlines". There is an essay (opinion piece) that presents both sides of this particular question. But there is widespread agreement that edits that don't actually "fix" anything and that do not affect the page rendering are unnecessary, and that changing things to match your personal preference should be avoided; you should leave things the way the writer left them. Whatever you decide to do or not do here, thank you for your consideration, and I want to stress again that this paragraph is purely my preference and my opinion.

Thank you for your explication/opinion. Those fixes were suggested by Advisor. It seems that advise was not so good. --Ajv39 (talk) 12:20, 1 April 2015 (UTC)
