I believe most editors use Incorrect English, the second most common is American English, followed by Indian English and British English. -- Arnd Bergmann

Support request with team editing experiment project[edit]

Dear tech ambassadors, instead of spamming the Village Pump of each Wikipedia about my tiny project proposal for researching team editing (see here:, I have decided to leave to your own discretion if the matter is relevant enough to inform a wider audience already. I would appreciate if you could appraise if the Wikipedia community you are more familiar with could have interest in testing group editing "on their own grounds" and with their own guidance. In a nutshell: it consists in editing pages as a group instead of as an individual. This social experiment might involve redefining some aspects of the workflow we are all used to, with the hope of creating a more friendly and collaborative environment since editing under a group umbrella creates less social exposure than traditional "individual editing". I send you this message also as a proof that the Inspire Campaign is already gearing up. As said I would appreciate of *you* just a comment on the talk page/endorsement of my project noting your general perception about the idea. Nothing else. Your contribution helps to shape the future! (which I hope it will be very bright, with colors, and Wikipedia everywhere) Regards from User:Micru on meta.

Ignorant Art[edit]

In November 2014 you made 7 reverts on this article including 5 within 24 hours. You then protected the page to keep your preferred version. There is no discussion on the talk page and the article never went to AfD. This doesn't look appropriate to me; can you explain further? — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 12:08, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

MSGJ, Sabinbik has been blocked for sock-puppeting. Iggyazalealover99 was a sockpuppet of Sabinik too. Bgwhite is having some health issues, so I decided to reply instead of him. -- Magioladitis (talk) 20:27, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
That does not seem to explain it at all. But I'll wait for Bgwhite to respond himself, and I'll wish him/her a speedy recovery. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 21:04, 20 June 2015 (UTC)

Get Well Soon[edit]

Oh dear, just saw your update. Hope you feel better and Get Well Soon! From one Wikipedian to Another. Zhanzhao (talk) 23:30, 18 June 2015 (UTC)

Get well soon![edit]


Dear Bgwhite, please get well soon. I have no one else to bother here. The sooner you stop saying unkind things about your mother-in-law, the sooner you'll recover. By the way, I talked with her over the phone. She had a broken claw. Poor thing. Anyway, I hope you like this painting, which I drew specifically for you, to make your page look even nicer.

Oshkosh HEMTT[edit]

Hi Bgwhite. Thanks for your tidy-up of my recent updates to the HEMTT page. I clearly know more about trucks than I do Wiki editing... I am trying, and learning as I go, but thanks again for the 'little things' that make the page look so much better. Wolpat (talk) 10:32, 29 June 2015 (UTC)

Bot adding mismatched braces[edit]


this is odd, the spurious ending braces should not have been added. Frietjes (talk) 22:51, 30 June 2015 (UTC)

My middle name is odd. Oh Magioladitis... Bgwhite (talk) 23:01, 30 June 2015 (UTC)
Oh Rjwilmsi. -- Magioladitis (talk) 23:05, 30 June 2015 (UTC)

It was caused due to the unclosed ref tag above. [26]. -- Magioladitis (talk) 23:22, 30 June 2015 (UTC)

rev 11295 fixes it. -- Magioladitis (talk) 07:12, 5 July 2015 (UTC)

Stop violating of the good faith rules by banning other-pints editors![edit]

Please go to the discussion and stop imposing distributive banns over the topic with the Bulgarian Ruler's titles! -- (talk) 07:37, 2 July 2015 (UTC)

@Laszlo Panaflex, TodorBozhinov, and Cplakidas: I don't know who Христо Зарев Игнатов is and I didn't block them. But, they did pique my interest. I've put page protection on Tervel of Bulgaria, Kardam of Bulgaria, Malamir of Bulgaria, Krum and Kotrag for one month. Give a yell if you run into more problems in the future. I got the names and articles from Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents#User:Христо Зарев Игнатов Bgwhite (talk) 08:13, 2 July 2015 (UTC)

Revert without any reason[edit]

Hello, recently you reverted my changes on page Ghazipur. While I didn't add or reduced anything, I had moved some lines from background section to a new section, as that is more relevant and I would like it to do so again. But before that I wanted to understand your reasons. I had made only one change, you can see that marked through my user name. Thank You Durgesh (talk) 15:29, 2 July 2015 (UTC)

Durgesh I didn't revert you. I reverted the IP that has been constantly reverted for several months now. You just got caught up in the mess. However, your addition didn't contain any references. So, you need to add some. Bgwhite (talk) 21:40, 2 July 2015 (UTC)

Way of listing a sub-category[edit]

Hello Bgwhite,

I recently created the category Onomasticon (which is works on the subject of proper names) and wanted to list this as a sub-category to Onomastics, but couldn't find any way to do this via the Edit function, could you help please? thanks Whalestate (talk) 10:06, 3 July 2015 (UTC)

My mind just understood how to do the thing I was needing help in. Really, although I have eyes, sometimes the light passes through my retina to my brain where it must just sit and do nothing, and another part of my brain trying to understand is kept separately. A back-log of unprocessed info perhaps (from my gut maybe). Okay shark! swim happy! Whalestate (talk) 11:13, 3 July 2015 (UTC)

Whalestate I see you suffer with Bgwhite disease. It's a condition where if the answer whacks you on the head, you feel no pain because of lack of brain function. I'm sorry, but there is no cure. Bgwhite (talk) 23:56, 3 July 2015 (UTC)

Christopher Stevens[edit]

Thanks for the revert! Left 'John Jones' by mistake! Looks good now. Llywelyn2000 (talk) 08:03, 4 July 2015 (UTC)
