February 2017[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Iryna Harpy. An edit that you recently made to Norwegian New Zealanders seemed to be a test and has been removed. If you want more practice editing, please use the sandbox. If you think a mistake was made, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page.
Please note that the 'total' parameter for 'ethnic group' templates is reserved for the total population of an ethnic group worldwide: i.e., the total population of Norwegians in the world including the diaspora. Cheers!

Survey Invite[edit]

I'm working on a study of political motivations and how they effect editing. I'd like to ask you to take a survey. The survey should take 5 minutes. Your survey responses will be kept private. Our project is documented at

Survey Link:

I am asking you to participate in this study because you are a frequent editor of pages on Wikipedia that are of political interest. We would like to learn about your experiences in dealing with editors of different political orientations.

Sincere thanks for your help! Porteclefs (talk) 15:18, 26 July 2017 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for January 18[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. An automated process has detected that when you recently edited Chileans, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page European (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are usually incorrect, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of unrelated topics with similar titles. (Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.)

FaZe Clan edit[edit]

You asked me what the heck is "wRrRos" I put on the start and to be honest, I don't know. My Wikipedia has been glitching when editing tables, so maybe I accidentally wrote something like that without knowing. Krafko (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 17:23, 4 June 2018 (UTC)

"States" field in "Infobox language"[edit]

You've made several changes to instances of "Infobox language" that purport to distinguish the "states" field as the origin of the language, and the "region" field as the region where a language is spoken. That seems to be at odds with both the existing usage and the documentation at Template:Infobox_language, which defines "states" as "countries in which it is mainly spoken". What's the rationale for the change? Nitpicking polish (talk) 01:17, 26 June 2018 (UTC)
