Comment/question: Could BracketBot insert an extra newline before the heading of the message it adds to a user's talkpage, please?
Thank you for a useful aid.

Comment/question:I used the reference code to make notes about references on this page. I'm very new and had never added "Notes" before so I'm not surprised I did something wrong! :) I got frustrated as an editor kept reversing changes I made to the page with comments that weren't very mentoring or generous. Instead of writing, "citation needed" on my changes, he deleted them. Background: In March/April a big cull was made to the page and a lot of good, if not well presented information (put up by newbies), was lost. Subsequently, authors not empathetic to what the page represents, have put up a lot of information showing why or how they dislike it. The Notes I wrote up, that the ReferenceBot flagged, identify the first principle or first stage of error with some of this unsympathetic information. That is, the choice to use Chinese and Japanese language symbols currently in use in Japan and China which are, in fact, not the symbols used to represent the name, Reiki. Thanks for your time on this!

@TrishApps: You'll want to check out maintenance templates such as {{citation needed}} or {{who}}. For longer editorial comments, please use the talk page, not footnotes within the article itself. I have moved your comments over to the talk page and left a comment of my own. Huon (talk) 11:22, 18 July 2015 (UTC)

ReferenceBot – Argyriou[edit]

Comment/question: The edit I made caused an error because there's no url=, just an archiveurl=. The original link has been dead for years; is any purpose served by putting in a dead link into a reference? Argyriou (talk) 00:43, 23 July 2015 (UTC)

Yes there is; it immediately shows what source we originally cited, without the need to go through the web archive. After all, the web archive is only reproducing that now-gone original, it's not a reliable source in its own right. In more practical terms, the citation template will add an "archived from the original" link, which obviously is impossible without the original URL. Huon (talk) 02:15, 27 July 2015 (UTC)

It appears someone reverted your edit (which to me looked more like a personal comment than encyclopedic content); the error was a missing bracket in the "Logos" link (the corresponding closing bracket is highlighted in red in BracketBot's message). Huon (talk) 02:15, 27 July 2015 (UTC)

In short, because an extraordinary claim such as that Bulgarian and Romanian honorifics have a Chinese etymology should be backed up by reliable sources. Those edits weren't reverted automatically, though; other humans removed them. Huon (talk) 02:15, 27 July 2015 (UTC)

Cornelia Fort Airpark:

https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?diff=673061912:

Cornelia was misspelled as "Conerlia" in the last line of section "History". I merely corrected the spelling. The URL link was already broken. The problem is that The Land Trust for Tennessee does not have any document by the title given in this reference. The spelling, right or wrong, is in the text of the article and does not affect the reference.

Eagledj (talk) 17:35, 26 July 2015 (UTC)

@Eagledj: The problem wasn't the broken link (which I fixed by providing an arcived copy of that page) but the fact that the parameter for the access date is named accessdate without a space. Adding that space breaks the parameter, causing the reference error. Huon (talk) 02:15, 27 July 2015 (UTC)

please how can I lock that page to avoid edits from other users?:

Ifecomito (talk) 16:51, 30 July 2015 (UTC)

The first step is to raise your concerns at Talk:Biafra by creating a new section describing the edits that you see as a problem. – Jonesey95 (talk) 17:14, 30 July 2015 (UTC)

Hi,

I believe this should now be resolved. Please let me know if there's anything else that needs to be done. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Negla85 (talkcontribs) 08:14, 31 July 2015 (UTC)

@Negla85: The reference error mentioned by the bot is resolved, but I rather don't think those are the kinds of third-party sources Wikipedia content should be based on. In particular, YouTube views are generally considered irrelevant unless a third-party source has commented on them. Huon (talk) 20:15, 1 August 2015 (UTC)

Help me change Official Language of Malawi to only English as it is the only Official Language. You can verify this by going to the Official Malawi Government Website at http://www.malawi.gov.mw

 I did some major edits on "David Holman" who is me.  There were several errors and omissions, however I accidentally deleted a line or two of references since this was the first time that I had registered and done any editing on any person or subject.  I've read the instructions on correcting these errors, but do not understand how to accomplish it.  Help!  Signed: Columbia37

Comment/question:

Columbia37 (talk) 21:57, 2 August 2015 (UTC)

@Columbia37: Others have fixed the references, but the content you added largely does not seem to be based on the reliable sources cited in the article. For example, "Holman currently lives with his life-partner Tom Young and their Westie "Mactavish" in Surprise, AZ, and Holman continues to do creative writing and has been speaking to numerous film & TV students in Texas, California, Illinois & New Mexico." - how can our readers verify that statement?

Comment/question:

Thanks. but... Thanks for notice about missing bracket(s) on 'Bishop'. I have corrected mine, and thanks for pointing it out. But you also mention another missing bracket in opening line re ....Testament]] Greek ἐπίσκοπος, epískopos, "overseer", "guardian") is an ordained or consecrated member of the [[Clergy#Christian... etc I thought I could fix that too! But it seems that there is actually a pair () of brackets already there, and any 'fix' I attempt only makes it worse! So I've left it as it is! Regards --Observer6 (talk) 16:47, 3 August 2015 (UTC)
