## Infobox 2

Thanks for the contributions to the Metacity article, but I've changed it back to the original software infobox. Here's why... on the discussion page of another article.. Thanks again, and I hope you can improve the article further. - Motor (talk) 17:20, 26 April 2006 (UTC)

## Your prose on Talk:Ubuntu (Linux distribution)

It would really help the project if you could be both more polite and detailed in your comments. Many thanks. - Samsara (talkcontribs) 18:37, 8 June 2006 (UTC)

Yes, I suppose so. bruce89 18:45, 8 June 2006 (UTC)

## Replacing my edit

Fine. I like a personal note over a template, myself.[1] I haven't told anybody to go away before, but edit warring on Wikipedia... well. Bishonen | talk 11:54, 26 June 2006 (UTC).

Sorry, I have merged the two together, I just thought it was a bit rude. bruce89 11:56, 26 June 2006 (UTC)

## .NET framework

I appreciate your edit. If you would, please continue to monitor the topic and step in with your own opinions ( on talk:) anytime. Leotohill 17:25, 27 June 2006 (UTC)

I will add it to my watchlist. bruce89 17:26, 27 June 2006 (UTC)

## Dartford

I know the vandal in person, and I am being personally targeted (my user page, various other pages that I edit, etc). Unless you can suggest another way to deal with it, forgive me a bit of impatience while I just sit there and revert his edits without stooping to his level. Thanks for your time.

## 85.227.10.132

I've been watching over this ip's talk page, and noticed you thought they were the person who edited, or "vandalised", yours. I'm sorry for not using proper Wiki User Talk Page etiquette on your page; it was me who remarked about your rude comment on that ip's talk page. From what I know, that ip is an exit gateway for the Tor network. Again, sorry for causing the hassle. I just thought that the last sentence of your remark on that page stuck out, and was unprofessional and rude, even though the user is a vandal/zombie.

Yes, you are right, that's why I changed it. I will not do it again. I just assumed it was the person whose page I was rude on.bruce89 13:02, 17 August 2006 (UTC)

## Thanks for the version number bump on Metacity.

The Wednesday Island 22:36, 4 September 2006 (UTC)

I do try to keep things up to date around here, so don't mention it. bruce89 22:36, 4 September 2006 (UTC)

Hello Bruce89. According to the official site, it seems that the latest Nautilus version is still 2.12.0, and not 2.16.0. I do not use this file manager, so I did not reverted your edit yet. Please confirm anyway. Thank you. Amux 09:59, 5 September 2006 (UTC)

That page is completely out of date. The GNOME FTP site states that 2.16.0 has been released, which is stable as it's minor revision number is even. bruce89 11:39, 5 September 2006 (UTC)

## Metacity

Can you include a link to the Metacity blog [2] somewhere on Metacity? Possibly some of the posts on there might be good for citations, too. Also, the infobox says it doesn't know what the first release number was; it was 2.4.13, as you can see from the NEWS file. Marnanel (talk) 16:08, 6 June 2008 (UTC)

I've put a link in the "External Links" section, I suppose it could be put somewhere more prominent. I'm slightly unsure about the initial release, as FTP would suggest that 2.4.2 was the first. I wonder if technically it should be one of the 2.3.x series, but they appear to have disappeared. bruce89 (talk) 12:53, 7 June 2008 (UTC)

## Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and you will still be able to manually mark your edits as being minor in the usual way.

For established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. With the script in place, you can continue with this functionality indefinitely (its use is governed by WP:MINOR). If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 19:03, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

## Thames measurement

Well, that is not what I see. I see this:

Thames Measurement, also known as Thames Tonnage, is a system for measuring ships and boats. It was created in 1855 by the Royal Thames Yacht Club, and was designed for small vessels, such as yachts. It was originally used for calculating the port dues for yachts; the formula was also used in some early handicapping systems for yacht racing.[1] It is a variation of Builder's Old Measurement.

The calculation of Thames Tonnage uses the following formula:

Failed to parse (unknown error): \text{Thames Tonnage} = \frac {(\text{length}-\text{beam}) \times \text{beam} \times \frac {\text{beam}}{2}} {94}

where:

length is the length, in feet, from the stempost to sternpost;

beam is the maximum beam, in feet.

This can be simplified as:

Failed to parse (unknown error): \text{Thames Tonnage} = \frac {(\text{length}-\text{beam}) \times \text{beam}^2} {188}


So something is wrong Fiddle Faddle 13:47, 13 September 2013 (UTC)

Doesn't cause an error here, but I'll leave it alone anyway. \text is a amsmath macro, perhaps that's what the issue is. bruce89 (talk) 14:01, 13 September 2013 (UTC)

Please see File:Screen shot of Thames Measurement page.png, which is the screenshot I took of the page just now. The prior version does not exhibit this. Please nominate the file for deletion after you have viewed and made use of it, there is no reason to retain it in Wikipedia.
I have noi idea of the syntax. Might I suggest you self revert and ask for other eyes to look at the problem? Fiddle Faddle 14:03, 13 September 2013 (UTC)

## Math tag replacements

Hey, there seems to be a problem with the characters you used in the math tags in Vertical pressure variation. Did the old version work for you? I'm getting a "Failed to parse(lexing error)". You might want to watch out for those characters you used and see if they work in preview. --EoD (talk) 09:00, 29 January 2014 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited 2014–15 European Rugby Champions Cup pool stage, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Jonathan Joseph. 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.
