Minor edits[edit]

Information.svg Please remember to mark your edits as minor if (and only if) they genuinely are minor edits (see Help:Minor edit). Marking a major change as a minor one is considered poor etiquette. The rule of thumb is that only an edit that consists solely of spelling corrections, formatting changes, or rearranging of text without modifying content should be flagged as a 'minor edit.' Thank you. Siawase (talk) 10:35, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

December 2011[edit]

Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. In your recent edit to Eric Clapton, you added links to an article which did not add content or meaning, or repeated the same link several times throughout the article. Please see Wikipedia's guideline on links to avoid overlinking. Thank you. Srobak (talk) 14:38, 22 December 2011 (UTC)

December 2013[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Ramaksoud2000. I noticed that you recently removed some content from Shambat (city) without explaining why. In the future, it would be helpful to others if you described your changes to Wikipedia with an edit summary. If this was a mistake, don't worry: I restored the removed content. If you would like to experiment, you can use the sandbox. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks! Ramaksoud2000 (Talk to me) 01:49, 3 December 2013 (UTC)

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Military light utility vehicle may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "[]"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:
  • The importance of this class of military vehicle was summed up by General [[Dwight Eisenhower]]] who said that the four most important US weapons in [[World War II]] were the [[C-47 Skytrain]],

Hipster edit[edit]

Sorry about that, misread your edit as changing the text of the quote rather than just the piped links. --McGeddon (talk) 09:23, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

AWOL[edit]

Actually, both AWOL and A.W.O.L. redirect to Desertion. Pdfpdf (talk) 23:50, 4 June 2014 (UTC)

Hmm. Either that just changed or something screwed up somehow. Blaylockjam10 (talk) 00:23, 5 June 2014 (UTC)

ISIS[edit]

Just to let you know, I moved your new sentence in the Lead to the section "As Islamic State" as a better place for it, to keep the Lead as brief as possible and because "As Islamic State" summarises main events since ISIS became IS. The supporting footnote is a bare URL; could you convert it to the standard WP format using one of the templates on the edit page, please? --P123ct1 (talk) 07:27, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanks. A couple of points. Could you do the date and names in the same format as the other footnotes in "References" in future, please? They have the author's surname first and the first name last. Your template may just have "author". Mine and other's have a box for surname and a box for first name and a + sign for second and third names. Can you let me know what yours has? I think it may be an old template (don't ask me how you get it!) and if so, I'll get the technical people to sort it out so that everyone gets the same one from the drop-down menu. Sounds like a small point, but I am forever correcting footnote formats! --P123ct1 (talk) 12:13, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

Americans[edit]

I strongly believe what you said. In response I replaced Robin Williams with Daniel Inouye. What do you think? --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 23:25, 4 September 2014 (UTC)

Supervolcano[edit]

Hi Blaylockjam10. I'm Siyu Lai. A student from China. I saw you modify a lot on "Supervolcano", and I have a few comments. In Newhall's Volcanic explosivity index, there are no VEI-9, and MAX VEI is 8. Even VEI-9 exist, I don't think any volcanoes could be describe as VEI-9. Have you read the paper which written by Newhall and Self(dol: 10.1029/JC087iC02p01231)? Their max VEI is 8. OK, this not the point. My point is the definition of measurement of VEI, which is the volume. You defined the measurement of VEI is to use dense rock equivalent, but I think that measurement of VEI is to use bulk volume. For many examples, 1991 eruption of Pinatubo defined as VEI-6, but the DRE of Pinatubo eruption products are only 4.8-6km3(Wiesner et al. 2004); 0.64 Ma eruption of Yellowstone(Lava Creek tuff) defined as VEI-8, but the bulk volume of Lava Creek tuff is only 1000km3(DRE could be much lower)(by Christiansen); 1815 eruption of Tambora defined as VEI-7, but the DRE of Tambora eruption products are only 41km3(Kandlbauer and Sparks., 2014). — Preceding unsigned comment added by Siyu Lai (talkcontribs) 04:18, 23 September 2015 (UTC)

@Siyu Lai: I was only doing maintenance edits & adding info from related supervolcano articles. I'm not an expert on supervolcanoes. I didn't do any definitions of how the VEI scale is measured & don't even know how the VEI scale is measured. Blaylockjam10 (talk) 06:40, 23 September 2015 (UTC)
