Tip of the day...

Navigate fast using shortcuts

Many of the pages in the Wikipedia namespace have specialized redirects called "shortcuts" that can be entered into the search box. Most shortcuts start with WP: followed by a capitalized abbreviation of the page name. Some common shortcuts are: WP:HELP, WP:WELCOME, WP:IMAGE, WP:5P, and of course, WP:TIP. A semi-complete list of shortcuts is available at Wikipedia:Shortcuts.

A shortcut can be used in the searchbox or in a link.

To jump to the talk page of a page with a shortcut, start with "WT:" instead of "WP:".

Your work is much appreciated, thanks, Huldra (talk) 14:15, 4 December 2014 (UTC)


Thanks for protecting my user-page. Unfortunately it has the effect that I cannot edit it at all.....is there a way to protect it, but to give access to reviewers or roll-backers (which I am)?

Again, thanks again for your good work, I am afraid that it has marked you as his next target... (This is so classical jarlea), Huldra (talk) 13:40, 4 December 2014 (UTC)

Association of Wikipedians Who Dislike Making Broad Judgments About the Worthiness of a General Category of Article, and Who Are in Favor of the Deletion of Some Particularly Bad Articles, but That Doesn't Mean They Are Deletionists


Est omnino difficile iudicare inclusionis meritum cuiusdam rei in encyclopædia cum ratio sciendi quid populi referat incerta sit, sed nihilominus aliquid encyclopædiam dedecet

It is generally difficult to judge the worthiness of a particular topic for inclusion in an encyclopedia considering that there is no certain way to know what interests people, but some topics nevertheless are not fit for an encyclopedia.

This motto reflects the desire of these Wikipedians to be reluctant, but not entirely unwilling, to remove articles from Wikipedia.

I've been directed to this page, but can't see where to write my comment, so I can only try here. I amended the page for the year 476 to change the name of the last Roman Emperor from 'Romulus Augustus' to 'Romulus Augustulus', but you immediately reversed this change, saying that it wasn't constructive. However, since the target page linked to the amendment was in the latter name I feel that my amendment was simply a tidy-up operation. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:36, 11 March 2015 (UTC)

Wikiweed at Ferris Bueller's Day Off?[edit]

I was going to revert this edit [1], but I thought first I should find out what "wikiweed" is. Does it just mean a wikilink that is not useful or is guilty of overlinking? I thought it was a useful link, because "skip school" is a phrase not found in most dictionaries, and might not be familiar to a sizeable number of readers.

Thanks very much...[edit]
