Spanish-American War[edit]

I do not understand why you have twice now deleted a sourced footnote I added -not even in the text body! - provideing a needed caveat to a disputed "fact" of history. Please discuss on the article talk page Solicitr (talk) 03:42, 18 March 2014 (UTC)

The problem is that it is not in the text body. References are not footnotes, you can not add personal commentary as a reference. If you feel confident enough about your addition you should find a way to integrate it into the text instead of trying to hide it a place it doesn't belong.

Disambiguation link notification for October 4[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Qt (software), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page NFC. 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.

Jeppiz (talk) 14:29, 30 October 2014 (UTC)

I reverted YOUR deletion of content and templates, which you did to reignite an issue already debated on talk pages. Something YOU did without getting a new concent.Carewolf (talk) 18:24, 30 October 2014 (UTC)

Stop icon You may be blocked from editing without further warning the next time you remove or blank page content or templates from Wikipedia, as you did at Scandinavia. Jeppiz (talk) 20:50, 30 October 2014 (UTC)

I didn't remove or blank anything. You are the one deleting, I was reverting your deletions. Stop making idle reverted threats. Carewolf (talk) 09:05, 5 November 2014 (UTC)

DSA, Mantle, and citations[edit]

This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Elision[edit]

Why did you undo my edit? Evan Rye (talk) 22:53, 3 May 2016 (UTC)

Because it made no sense, you were complaining about cannot, and claiming it was removing letters, when all it removes is a space. Carewolf (talk) 08:13, 4 May 2016 (UTC)
You're kidding me, right? If you are unsure what the term 'elision' actually entails, read the first sentence of the page. It denotes the deletion of sounds, i.e. orthographical matters don't come into it. Can not = /kæn nɒt/, whereas cannot = /kænɒt/. Clear elision of one of the /n/s. -- Evan Rye (talk) 21:49, 4 May 2016 (UTC)
That may be debatable. But it is not how it sounds to me. Do you have a source backing you?Carewolf (talk) 11:42, 16 May 2016 (UTC)


Adition of Qt to rendering APIs[edit]

not sure that Qt belongs there, as I always perceived Qt as a fully fledged GUI framework (similar to MFC, win32, GTK, Cocoa) . Then again I'm no Qt expert, I gather it has more.. could it be qualified? is there some specific Qt rendering abstraction component or something? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Fmadd (talkcontribs) 17:17, 16 June 2016

Qt as whole does not. But Qt GUI contains the QPainter API which is the same API as Skia, since Skia was created specifically to implement the QPainter based API in WebKit. Carewolf (talk) 17:30, 16 June 2016 (UTC)

Zen production date[edit]

Hi Carewolf, I notice you undid my removal of 2013 as the Zen microarchitecture production start date. This date is unsupported by any citation and I believe to be erroneous/conjecture. I have begun a discussion on the talk page to try and find a consensus. Dbsseven (talk) 15:54, 17 April 2017 (UTC)

The only problem I had with your edit was that you put a very specific date on it, that was clearly wrong. You can reintroduce it with something more loose. Carewolf (talk) 16:32, 17 April 2017 (UTC)
Similarly, my disagreement is with the specificity of the current "2013-2017" dating. The only firm information we have is that Zen is produced in 2017. There are no citable sources that I am aware of stating production began any earlier. And the 2013 date in particular appears both arbitrary and implausible. Dbsseven (talk) 16:44, 17 April 2017 (UTC)
True. Q1 2017? Carewolf (talk) 11:13, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
Works for me. Updating Dbsseven (talk) 15:42, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
