Urban fantasy[edit]

Replied to the issue you raised on the talk page. It's not exactly a 'solution,' but it may be a slight improvement. On a side note, thought I'd mention that I know what the italics were for in your previous edits. I'm just more familiar with italics being used for single words than terms in cases like this. Regards. -- James26 (talk) 04:57, 14 October 2010 (UTC)

August 2011[edit]

Centipede bite[edit]

Augurar, I salute your work on the Centipede bite page, and while I readily admit it has a much better structure to it now, I'm the least bit snubbed that you characterized my edits as "awkward" and "incoherent". Sad face. :( Buddy23Lee (talk) 18:59, 8 November 2011 (UTC)

I apologize for my arrogant wording. I was hyperbolizing somewhat -- it would have been more accurate to have said: "attempted to improve clarity and flow". No insult was intended, it just came out rather harshly, it seems. Augurar (talk) 20:10, 8 November 2011 (UTC)
No worries my friend, and thank you for the clarification. :) Buddy23Lee (talk) 18:58, 9 November 2011 (UTC)

Rasputin[edit]

Hello Augurar, please explain yourself. Anybody can put a template somewhere. Your solution is too easy.Taksen (talk) 04:59, 26 November 2013 (UTC)

I have put back the template with more explanation on the talk page. I'm sorry if I upset you. Augurar (talk) 05:24, 26 November 2013 (UTC)

Agouti (disambiguation)[edit]

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Agouti (disambiguation), and it appears to be a substantial copy of http://shelf3d.com/i/Agouti.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. The article will be reviewed to determine if there are any copyright issues.

If substantial content is duplicated and it is not public domain or available under a compatible license, it will be deleted. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material. You may use such publications as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. See our copyright policy for further details. (If you own the copyright to the previously published content and wish to donate it, see Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials for the procedure.) CorenSearchBot (talk) 06:53, 2 August 2014 (UTC)

This is a false positive. In fact, the linked URL was using content from Wikipedia, which I had moved from Agouti to Agouti (disambiguation). Augurar (talk) 07:23, 2 August 2014 (UTC)

September 2014[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Eugene Goostman may have broken the syntax by modifying 3 "()"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:
  • '''Eugene:''' Something between 2 and 4. Maybe, three? :-))) By the way, I still don’t know your specialty – or, possibly, I’ve missed it?

Disambiguation link notification for September 21[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Cuniculus hernandezi, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Specific epithet. 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.

Disambiguation link notification for July 30[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Palustrine, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Lacustrine.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Notice regarding all edits about, and all pages related to post-1932 politics of the United States and closely related people[edit]

Commons-emblem-notice.svg This message contains important information about an administrative situation on Wikipedia. It does not imply any misconduct regarding your own contributions to date.

Please carefully read this information:

The Arbitration Committee has authorised discretionary sanctions to be used for pages regarding all edits about, and all pages related to post-1932 politics of the United States and closely related people, a topic which you have edited. The Committee's decision is here.

Discretionary sanctions is a system of conduct regulation designed to minimize disruption to controversial topics. This means uninvolved administrators can impose sanctions for edits relating to the topic that do not adhere to the purpose of Wikipedia, our standards of behavior, or relevant policies. Administrators may impose sanctions such as editing restrictions, bans, or blocks. This message is to notify you that sanctions are authorised for the topic you are editing. Before continuing to edit this topic, please familiarise yourself with the discretionary sanctions system. Don't hesitate to contact me or another editor if you have any questions.
Neutralitytalk 20:58, 20 May 2017 (UTC)

JAR[edit]

Your re-write is well sourced, balanced, and relatively neutral, and will therefore never be accepted in that article. Since the day the article was created, any effort to achieve neutrality has been rebuffed, often with threats and intimidation. Many of us who used to edit the article have stopped. It's a shame, because a well-written article is possible, as can be seen for other language wikis addressing this topic. -Darouet (talk) 02:09, 17 July 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for the compliment. I too have decided to give up on that article and possibly all of Wikipedia. Let the propaganda flow! Augurar (talk) 04:49, 26 July 2017 (UTC)

Templating the regulars[edit]

FYI, templating editors that are more experienced than you is a faux pas. More concerning is that you are foolishly still trying to edit war that NPOV template against consensus, which is a part of your pattern of trolling that article. Anybody that thinks that the Russia investigation is "McCarthyism" really should not be editing that article anyway, and if you don't adjust your behavior, that could potentially be fixed in the near future. Geogene (talk) 14:20, 25 July 2017 (UTC)

Based on your behavior, I assumed you were either a newbie or had forgotten the rules. From your comments it seems like you think you own the article in question. In fact, you have absolutely no authority to decide who should be editing that or any article, your veiled threat to "fix" my "foolish" attempts to improve the article notwithstanding. Augurar (talk) 03:41, 26 July 2017 (UTC)
I'm noticing a pattern of disruptive editing from you. And while I don't have authority to, say, sanction people, I've seen it before and can see where it will probably go. Geogene (talk) 04:06, 26 July 2017 (UTC)
You win this one, enjoy your fiefdom. Augurar (talk) 04:29, 26 July 2017 (UTC)

Notice of Edit warring noticeboard discussion[edit]

Information icon Hello. This message is being sent to inform you that there is currently a discussion involving you at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Edit warring regarding a possible violation of Wikipedia's policy on edit warring. Thank you. Geogene (talk) 04:03, 26 July 2017 (UTC)

Hello Augurar. You seem to have broken the WP:1RR restriction on Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections. There may still be time for you to avoid a block by undoing your last change. Thank you, EdJohnston (talk) 04:36, 26 July 2017 (UTC)
The change has already been undone by a member of the article's ruling junta. I am composing a reply on the noticeboard. Augurar (talk) 04:38, 26 July 2017 (UTC)
If you don't accept the need to persuade the other users you will find it hard to edit anything controversial here. And the one you have chosen to work on is probably near the summit of all the disputed articles. EdJohnston (talk) 16:27, 26 July 2017 (UTC)

Ways to improve UWSGI[edit]

Hi, I'm Rentier. Augurar, thanks for creating UWSGI!

I've just tagged the page, using our page curation tools, as having some issues to fix. Hi, it's unclear to me how this passes WP:NSOFT?

The tags can be removed by you or another editor once the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, you can leave a comment on my talk page. Or, for more editing help, talk to the volunteers at the Teahouse.
