Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference[edit]

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 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'. The only thing that's changed is that you will no longer be able to have them marked as minor by default. For more information on what a minor edit is, see WP:MINOR or feel to get in touch.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 23:13, 13 March 2011 (UTC)

September 2013[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Pike (programming language) 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 curly brackets enclose the function and the semicolon separates statements (meaning the [[function (programming)|function]] could have been written on a single line: <source

A cup of tea for you![edit]

Meissen-teacup pinkrose01.jpg Thank you for your edit of Tail call, putting the code variants there into a proper table! I tried once but it looked uneven and ugly; you made it very nice and beautiful. Thanks a lot! :) WillNess (talk) 09:04, 2 October 2013 (UTC)

Broadcast XML Nominated for deletion[edit]

Broadcast Markup Language has been nominated for deletion by a user who is involved in trying to delet the BeerXML article and is now trawling Wikipedia for other articles to delete because they are losing that debate and feel that if other XML derived standards are deleted it might help them win the argument they are losing. Please challenge its deletion if you feel this is an unnacceptable. Regards Devils In Skirts! (talk) 12:13, 15 February 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for April 6[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited List of Hello world program examples, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Accumulator (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). 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.

source lang="68000devpac"[edit]

The Motorola 6800 microprocessor is an 8-bit microprocessor while the Motorola 68000 is a 16/32 bit microprocessor. While some of the instructions are the same most are different. When you add source lang="68000devpac" less than half the instructions show up in color. I have removed the change. - SWTPC6800 (talk) 02:20, 9 April 2015 (UTC)

languages for source[edit]

Hi, re this edit. What is "moin", and where can I find a list of valid languages? --Redrose64 (talk) 18:58, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

That list is https://github.com/wikimedia/mediawiki-extensions-SyntaxHighlight_GeSHi/blob/master/SyntaxHighlight_GeSHi.lexers.php. The "moin" means MoinMoin wiki. Also "trac-wiki" is similar to mediawiki. c.f. http://www.wikimatrix.org/compare/MediaWiki+MoinMoin+TracWiki -- Cedar101 (talk) 02:17, 29 July 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. Unfortunately no expansions or explanations are given. I guess that many of them only mean something to those who know about that language. But it does explain why people have been altering the previously-valid lang=html4strict and lang=html5 to lang=html. It's also justification to fix up several of Technical 13 (talk · contribs)'s edits where they insisted on using lang=BibTex for wiki markup (e.g. here), which (three times) I asked them not to. --Redrose64 (talk) 09:31, 29 July 2015 (UTC)
Is there info written up on any help page on Wikipedia about using <source> versus <pre> versus <code>, etc.? If not, could you all add something to one of the relevant help pages? --Timeshifter (talk) 20:09, 5 August 2015 (UTC)
See MOS:CODE, H:HTML#code, H:HTML#pre, H:MARKUP#Text formatting, H:MARKUP#pre and mw:Extension:SyntaxHighlight. -- Cedar101 (talk) 20:14, 5 August 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. It would be nice if there were a single help page just for formatting source wikitext for presentation. --Timeshifter (talk) 02:07, 7 August 2015 (UTC)
